"Wouldn't you rather play tvery day down there instead of bench-warming: -at the Polo Gerunds?" he was asked. "Heck, no," Bressoud snapped. "I'd rather be in New York. It gives me a year's start on my pension plan." * • • Carl Patterson ol Armorel High ... is all signed, sealed, and ready to be delivered for next year's hardwood season at Memphis SUte . Carl accepted a full, four• year scholarship (with all the trlmmlnfs) at the Memphli •chool Saturday.

Last season Meniphts State was ranked among the top £0 teams in the nation and were listed officially as No. A on a nationwide grame average basis. Their average was 88.3 . . . with a 20-7 season record. Carl Patterson won't ruin that fine slate.

The Athletics, fresh from drubbing of the Chicago White Sox, couldn't, solve lefty Billy Pierce of the White Sox and went down, 3-0, on only three hits at Kansas City before 16,957 fans. A victory for the A's and a New York Yankee defeat would have put Kansas Clly on top. Alex Kellner shut out the White Sox until the seventh when little Nellie Fox broke it up with a home run. The Redbirds had a chance to take over first place after a 10-4 victory over the Milwaukee Braves yesterday at St. Louis. But the Braves hopped on four St. Louis pitchers for 16 hits, won the nightcap, 13-5. and grabbed first place for themselves before 25,431. .Lew Burdette was in complete in low-hitters either With him charge in the opener until the Cardinals exploded for an eight- run sixth inning which Stan Musial started with a single and climaxed with a grand slam homer. Warren Spahn, an old Cardinal nemesis, was clubbed for five runs but the first three runs were j charged to Burdette, who left with! two on base, so he was the loser Ken Boyer had five hits in nine! trips for the double header raising his season average to .565.'

(AP) — Billy Maxwell, who was a boy wondefr as an amateur, played like an old pro yesterday in winning the $15,000 Hot Springs Open g«lf tournament.— his biggest triumph so far. . ;;„;,:' The 26-year-old Maxwell tin: r , : ' : — .it—_ . been a "promising youngster** fo several years on the pro circuit and he "arrived" yesterday when he birdied the final hole for a 72 hole total of 212 and a orw-strolc victory over Ernie Vossler of Port Worth, Tex., and George Bayer o Cincinnati, Ohio. Maxwell, from Odessa, Tex., was a star among a group of stars as a collegian when he played fo North Texas State College. He graduated to -professional golf atte winning the National Amateur a tender age. Misses One-Footer Vossler missed a one-foot put on No. 17 that would have given him a tie for the top.

Cary Middlecoff, Dallas, Tex., finished in a tie for fifth with home town pro Pete Flemine at 277. His game had collapsed after early leads in the St. Petersburg, Pla., and Miami, Fla., Opens dur ing the recent winter tour, and he seemed to think he would never be able to put together four gooc rounds. This time he opened with „. 8-under-par 64 to take the lead Which he held or shared all the way as he followed up-with scores of 69, 70, and 69 over the par 3636—72 layout. "I thought i nad blown this one when I hit Into a trap on the 17th," Maxwell said. But he blasted out to within three feet and sank the putt for his par three. When the lall rimmed the cup before dropping in, the usual "ohs" went up from the crowd, and Maxwell drew a big laugh by joining in. It was the first time he had smiled all day. One-Stroke Lead Maxwell started yesterday only stroke ahead of Bo Wininger of Oklahoma City, the defending champion, and Bayer, the long knocker who also remained remained remarkably steady with hree straight 68's and a 69. The genial Texan needed a bird- e to win on the 510-yard 18th, after iayer and Vossler had eagled that hole. Maxwell calmly drove his 80-yard second shot to within 15 eet of the hole and he was all miles when he walked onto the green. "I never did see that ball." he aid. "Believe me, I was happy vhen I waited up there and saw where it was." He putted to within 'about a foot of the hole and tapped it to to take the $2,400 check. Strangely, Vossler also didn' see the shot that gave him a; eagle on the final hole. He blaster out oi" a, sand trap and holed ou for his three. "The crowd closed in so quickly I couldn't see what happened," hi said. Bayer had no trouble getting his eagle after socking a tee shot tha left hini-.only an eight iron to the green. He sand a 5-foot putt. , Best Round Vossler missca a one-foot put on No. 17. that would have given him a tie for the top and send the tournament into a playoff.

Gary Middlecoff of Dallas, Tex., finished in a tie for fifth with hometown pro Pete Fleming. at 277. Maxwell's only bogey on the lasl round came on the par three llth. His tee shot was wide and a little short. He chipped up nicely and hen missed the tricky 3-foot putt. He came out of sand traps three iimes in good shape, but his best •ecovery after a straying shot was the ; 510-yard sixth hole. He seemed 1 ; to be In serious trouble after his tee shot hooked into the rees. With trees blocking his path, Billy turned his back to the green and played it safe by hitting hrough a broad opening back into he fairway. His next shot stopped eight feet Jiort of the hole and he dropped t for a birdie. Read Courier News Classified Ads. JACK BUCK JOE GARAGIOLA Irought to you by ANHEUSER-BUSCH, INC. ST.
