The first event of the season at the popular club in the Litchfield Hills was the forerunner of a busy season of the sport of hich the Norfolk club president, Harris M. Hunt says, "Curling is--not a sport, it's a disease." js! Interest in curling in Connecticut is on the upgrade. Many new curlers are playing in the historic game on the two lanes of artifical ice, and one of the encouraging aspects is that many youngsters are talcing up the sport. It is hoped to have the young players take part in a competition later in the season at Nashua, N. H. ' M $rm HUNT deMANBEY SIDEROWF HAYS ; Caledonia, N. Y., won the International event recently, to assure the John Walcott Cadler Trophy staying this side of the border. Jim Wright, of the rink representing the Pointe Claire club, just outside of Montreal, . looked like winners of the event. When the Canadians left for home in mid-afternoon of the final day they were leading but the New York State club defeated The Country Club of Brookhne, Mass. to capture the event. Wright's ruik finished second. !r Besides lauding the generous hospitality of the Norfolk club, in his second competition in these parts, Skip Wright talked about curling, and the influx of youngsters into the winter sport, ff "Juniors curlers are appearing all over Canada which speaks well for the future. Hockey will still have players in the East as long as Canadiens and Toronto Maple Leafs give their great support to junior outfits. "We've had a great time here in Norfolk. This club has done a lot to promote interest in the game and we found these new stones (the one which were purchased recently in Scotland were wonderful." . NORFOLK CURLERS HOPE FOR SPREAD OF SPORT Another member of the Pointe Claire rink, Ernie Cosh had a little ;nore to add about junior curling. and challenged new arrival Roy McMillan to beat him out of the job in spring training. "I don't know what the Braves are thinking," Logan said, "but I still consider myself the club's regular shortstop, and I'll be battling for the job at Bradenton." Milwaukee Gen. Mgr. John Mc-Hale made his second big trade m 10 days late last nieht durins? 4 I !a Milwaukee baseball writers' ho- imay ian, aeuuuig puciiers iuan Pizarro and Joey Jay to the Cin cinnati Reds for the slick-fielding McMillan. In turn, the Reds shuttled Pizarro and pitcher Cal McLish to the Chicago White Sox for Gene Freese. McHale immediately claimed "the best infield in baseball," and he wasn't including Logan, The McMillan trade, coupled with the deal last week that sent out fielder Billy Bruton to the De troit Tigers for second baseman Frank Boiling, gave him an inner defense of Joe Adcock at first, Boiling, McMillan and hard-hitting Eddie Mathews at third. Still seeks swap And McHale was still busy to day, trying to beat the interleague trading deadline of midnight to night. Adcock had one of his best years in 1959. Always noted for his long distance clouting, Adcock last season was the National League's top glove man at his position And Mathews was third in horn' ers and RBI's in the league a "Out in western Canada curling on the scholastic level, hasjear ago attracted many youngsters who otherwise might be heading for hockey careers. However, there will probably still be hockey ma terial for a long time but curling is drawing them and our National championships have provided a great stimulus to the game. One Norfolk member "fears" the influx of juniors into the game. He is Cecil Dyer, the lefth'anded curler. "My boy is doing pretty well and I have to took' out or he'll sweep me off the ice," he says. Bill Browne, Norfolk club treasurer, like President Harris Hunt, Vice president Lyndsay deManbey and Tournament Chairman Darrell Russ are confident in a few years curling will be a big participant sport in Connecticut A new club in Greenwich has been formed and will take part in competitions this winter. William C. Skinner, Grand Daddy of curling in this State, who has been competing since 1912 and played considerably at Farm-ington, thinks the addition of . curling would be a big thing for country clubs. The cost of the curling facilities would be met with ooeration in a few short years, he contends The recent Bonspiel drew many newcomers and among those who were looking at a "first" was "Army" Armstrong. Avon goiter and bowler. He agreed with President Hunt that "curling is a disease, not a snort. Curling was on TV last Saturday and Johnny Cesario's excellent show on Channel 30 was a good half hour viewing. Henry L. Shepherd, one of the Norfolk members and an outstanding curler. described the sport which he said is "purely amateur.' The curling film showed matches in Canada and the commentator revealed that 50,000 schoolboys compete annually. DICK SIDEROWF FOLLOWS MANY STAR M'TMEGGERS p Dick Sidcrowf is planning to move into professional golf ranks, with one of the finest records ever compiled by a Connecticut amateur. The New Britain youth will follow several golfers who decided to enter the monied ranks after careers as standout Nutmeg amateurs. The list of ex-State amateurs includes Julius Boros, who played at Rockledge but never won a title, Felice Torza of Wethers-field, once winner of the State Open and the Wethersfield Invitation, Billy Markham of Wethersfield, who took the State Amateur, Billy Booe of Brooklawn, Billy Thornton of Manchester, once winner of the State Junior crown, Larry McCue of Torrington, who won the Cirant's Tournament of Champions on three occasions and Ernie Gerardi, Edgewood pro, who won the State and New England .Amateur titles, are a few who went into pro ranks in the last ten ,to 15 years. Boros' big win was the U.S. Open in 1952 and ako the World title and he has been a consistently dominating figure on 'the tour. The others mentioned, have for the most part, settled in 'jobs as club pros. There are a number of other promising amateurs: who have become assistant pros alter weir siarc in gou in mis omc 4 TALENTED GOLFER WON FIRST BIG TITLE IN 1955 Two State Amateur crowns, 1955 and 1960, the State Open fwi. 1959 and 1958. the Wethersfield Invitation in 1956 and leading ' the amateurs in the I960 Insurance City Open last summer are the maior triumphs of Sidcrowf. He has also added many smaller Wnt in the State over the years including two Junior champion 6hips, and two medals, the State and Jaycees. He was a member of fhe State team on two occasions. He shared the top amateur lionori in the 1959 ICO. Siderowf has competed for several years in the Central Connecticut .'rnlf Association as a member of the Indian Hill team while .'winning numerous honors. The New Britain shotmaker got his Mart at the Stanley course in his home town, and it was at Stanley Mat he won the coveted Dom Soccou Memorial event this year, '.pom Soccoli was was a close friend of Dick Siderowf. As to his capabilities Dick Siderowf possesses all the necessary nninmpnt. He is strong, hits a long ball and is an excellent putter. .Above all he has the desire. Practice is one thing that he loves, and .'many hours spent brushing up on ins game nave Deen wen spent. JIe has an amazing power of concentration, something which was 'more annarent this Year. Harry NcttelWadt, Golf Club of Avon pro, and president of "lhe Connecticut secuon oi me iu uaucu . juu.s j JUuke University golf captain. if. "Dick Siderowf has everything to make a successful career is a golf professional, and do well on the tour. Our association twishes him well, and I. personally, feel sure he will make good. His record proves his ability. He is well liked and anxious to learn ' and in this I have suggested that he avail himself of the opportunities 'of the National PGA school at Duncdin." ) GUN CLUB COMPLETES ANOTHER SUCCESSFUL YEAR t The Hartford Gun Club winds up another successful competitive season with the Christinas tournament today. This was the 75th ' year of activity. 1 The recent annual report showed that the club had the largest active membership since 1955 with 382 members on the rolls. An example of the increase in popularity is seen in records since ,1048 when there were 1IS8 active members. Harry M. Hays was re-elected president and the hard working man who says he was named "because there wasn't any one else to fill the position", has '.been a valuable figure in the organization's activities. The report reveals the club is in a healthy condition financially. l it has widened its program of events. McHale said he "liked Logan's attitude" about battling McMil lan for the regular's job. But as of today it appeared nine-year veteran Logan, three times the league's top fielder and one of its most combative players, was a reserve, with the possibility, he will be used in a deal. Logan slumped to .247, a career low last year, and had a bad season in the field. "For Lord's sake, sure I had a bad year, but I don't think I'm through as a regular, Logan said. "You can't say I've slowed up. either. I'm not 21, but I'm not old either," the 33-year-old infielder said. "I've got experience. I know how to play the hitters," he said. But the trade didn't surprise him, Logan said. "Mac's a real good player, and the Braves want some new faces. But I'm going to convince em im not as bad a plaver as last year would indi-cae." ' : Youngsters Slumped In peddling Pizarro and Jay, the Braves gave up on two young sters who gave flashes of prom ises. Wen slumped, it could be under different tutors, and new surroundings, they'll make the grade. "But we got the man we want ed, and now it's up to our young sters on the pitching staff and in the outfield to help us, McHale said. This is the most trading the Braves have done since moving here from Boston in 1953. The last big deal was for second base man Red Schoendienst in 1957, and it led to pennants in 1957 and 1958. Then it was "stand pat the next two seasons, and the club finished second twice. "Our next item on the trading agenda is for a relief pitcher," McHale said. Failure of the bullpen corps has been cited by Manager Charlie Dressen for last year's runnerup finish.

Green Bay Seeking Western Title in Los Angeles Battle Buckeye Swimmer Air Crash Victim COLUMBUS, Ohio UPI -Richard Connell, a member of the Ohio State University swimming team, was among those killed in the collision of two planes in New York Friday. Connell, whose home was in suburban Bexley, boarded the TWA plane here at 9 a.m. He was a former state high school swimming champion in the 100 - yard event and a member of the Buckeye team. Finley Bids $1,975,000 For Control CHICAGO UR Bidding for control of the Kansas City Athletics Friday was narrowed to two potential purchasers, a Kansas City group, and a Gary, Ind., insurance executive, Charles 0. Fin- ley. Finley, who admits he has made a career of trying to buy ball clubs, appeared in probate court with an offer matching that of the Kansas City group for the 52 per cent of A's stock held by the late Arnold Johnson of Chicago. , Probate Court Judge Robert J. Dunne gave both parties until Monday to settle an apparent bidding match for the controlling stock. Both indicated the present bid of $1,850,000 by each would be increased before Judge Dunne's final decision. In Kansas City, The Star report ed Finley will bid $1,975,000 for the 52 per cent next Monday and apparently will win control. Byron Spencer, attorney for the Kansas City businessmen, was quoted as saying: This Ls higher than we can go." .1 Form Joint Partnership It was not made clear immed iately whether the Kansas Citians would purchase the 48 per cent held by minority stockholders and form a joint ownership with Fin ley. "That is something we will have to work out later," Spencer said. If Finley bought the remaining 48 per cent from minority stock holders at the same price he has offered, the sale of the franchise would involve about $3,800,000. i LOS ANGELES. (A The Green Bay Packers are favored by 10 points to defeat the injury-hit Los Angeles Rams Saturday and wrap up the National Football League's Western Division title. . A "crowd of 60,000 at Memorial Coleseum plus a national television , audience will watch the battle as the Packers shoot for their first NFL championship since 1944. Kickoff will be at 1:35 PST. Also keenly viewing the contest will be 'the Baltimore Colts, San Francisco 49ers and Detroit Lions. A Ram victory could throw the division race into either a two-club or three-club playoff depending on the outcome of Sunday's games. , In Sunday games, the Colts meet the 49ers, the Bears play Detroit, Cleveland Browns face the New York Giants, Pittsburgh meets St. Louis, and Philadelphia plays Washigton. j Clear Day Forecast A clear, sunny day is forecast for the Packer-Ram battle, quite unlike the rainy sump at Kezar Stadium last week where the Paul Hornung-led Packers knocked off the San Francisco 49ers 13-0. Packer Coach Vince Lombardi reported that his beef trust is in fine fettle, with Hornung and company rarin' to avenge a 33-31 loss to the Rams earlier this season. Ram Coach Bob Waterfield, on the other hand, was singing the blues, mean and lowdown. Injuries force five lineup changes. Hopes brightened, however, with news from the training room that tackle ohn Baker and fullback Joe Marconi have a good chance of playing. They had been on the doubtful list. Quaterback Bart Starr will be in the T-formation saddle for Green Bay, directing what Ram Coach Waterfield calls the best one two punch in the NFL Hornung and Jim Taylor. Up front, cleaning the way, are such standout blockers as center Jim Ringo, guards Jerry Kramer and Fred Thurston and tackles Forrest Gregg, Bob Skoronski and Norm Masters. Directing the Ram attack at quaterback will be Billy Wade, the lanky veteran who beat the Colts 10-3 last week on a 66-yard rollout Wade replaces Frank Ryan, casualty of the Baltimore skirmish who is out for the season. Running for the Rams will be regulars Jon Arnett, Tom Wilson and Dick . Bass . with probably Ski Conditions BOSTON (AP) -Ski condition!
