BEATRICE DAILY SUN Beatrice. Nehr.. Sunday. June 30. Ifl4fl Pro Irica To Princeton i By Hugh FuUerton, jr. PRINCETON, N. J., June 29 UF» — Princeton's athletic program AtfiU be better and look worse during the colleges 200th anniversary years. . As Howie Stepp, assistant athletic director, sees it, the-Tigers are on the upgrade,] but they won't improve as fast as | a lot Of other schools. . . "If we would go out and get them, things I would be different," explains' Howie, "but we won't and can't— or maybe it would be better to say we can't and won't." . . Harry Klnnell, Princeton golf pro. has' worked at his profession in Scot- [ land, East Africa and America... j He served his apprenticeship at| Prestick, had his first pro job at Nairobi, in the heart of Africa's big game country, and came to j Princeton this spring. . . The big | difference, he explains, is that at Nairobi they have sand tees and greens and you're liable to f;ncl lions on the course instead of tigers, Handy Andy Oklahoma's Andy Anderson not; only attracts the 'biggest gallery | ' of the NCAA golf tournament here ; •—as many as eight followers be- j cause of his tremendous drives j 'and his occasibnal explosive com- j •meats, but also has attracted the j most colorful caddy. . . Carrying) Andy's clubs ' is Toby, a huge. negro who hasn't been seen much ' around the course since he used to caddy for Mel Dickinson, 1922 1 Princeton football captain, and Hack McGraw, who runs the alumni parades. . . Toby usually goes around barefooted, claiming the greenskeepers won't let him mark up their carefully tended turf with shoes. Sports Before Your Eyes Lynne McNutt. former all-Kansas high school halfback who played two years at Northwestern, will enroll at Kansas U., next fall. What's more, his kid brother, may join him. . . Louisiana State's ' golfers attribute their improvement in the second round of the NCAA tourney to some specially .brewed Louisiana coffee, which is considered just right when its thick enough to cut into chunks.

In the sixth they resumed' their attack and sent six more tal- 1 lies over the plate, Higbe clearing the bases with a double and Dixie!

' " ; In the other national league! game the New York Giants pre-' vented the Philadelphia Phillies 1 from moving into a fourth place! tie by outsconng the Quakers 1'0-S in a game in which 10 pitch-j ers were used and took two hours! and 45 minutes to play. I In a see-saw game that saw thej lead change hands four times, the; Giants came from behind an S-7J deficit to win the eighth inning! when singles by Will Marshall,' Ernie Lombardi, and Sid Gordon,! a walk to Buddy Blattner and a: long fly by Buddy Kerr produced' three tallies. j Lowly A's Blank Yankggs i In the American league the low-j ly Philadelphia Athletics, behind! the stylish pitching of Russ Chris-: topher and Jesse Flores, rose up and handed the New York Yankees a surprising 2-0 licking to drop the Yankees to eight games behind the American league lead-! ing Boston Rod Sox. j Charley (.Red) Ruffing, who had won his first five games this, season, was the victim, taking- his; first loss. He was greeted by aj home run by George McQuinn in; the fourth inning before bowing j out in the fifth after being bruised on the right Knee by Hank Majest- ki's bounder in the fourth. Williams Takes Batting Lead Tenacious Ted Williams snatched the American league batting lead from Micke^- Vernon by belting a three-run double and a triple on his two official slugging tries while the Red Sox were whaling the Washington Nat?, 12-8, to give! Tex Hughson his eighth win andi his fifth in a row. Hughson, decidedly off-form, owed his triumph to the seven-) runs blasting the sockers gave| Walt Masterson and Al Lamac-i chia in the third inning, after thej Nats had pulled into a 4-0 lead, i The Nats belted Tex Hughson! and Bob Klinger for 14 hits, in-1 eluding Stan Spence'a llth homer i of the season. i Tex Hughson was kfbcked out! of the box by the Nats but his; team's seven-run third inning i gave the Red Sox a 12 to 8 win! and an eight game lead over the Yankees. Will Television Doom The Million-Dollar Gate? By Jack Springer AP Newsfeatures Writer NEW YORK—It may be that one of the most intriguing stories of the recent Louis-Conn dam-in? and tumbling party hasn't yet been written. This would be about the television of the fight to a lucky few thousand in New York, Washington and other nearby points. Most of those who were in on the festivities via television came away with report? that they saw a lot better than they could have while sitting in one of Mike Jacobs' ; "ringside seats" a quarter-mile or ; so from the ring. i If you listen to these pioneers a few minutes, they may bo able to ', convince you the fight of the future may be witnessed on the spot only by a hardy few who en.iov the smell of sweat and Wood. The ! rest of the audience will be mad" up of millions who won't have to budge from their living rooms. ; Bounce that thought around and you begin tn wonder whether mil- ; lion dollar pates aren't being set up for a knockout, and whether; we're seeing the last of those 7f>.- i 000 attendance figures at the ball '. parks and race tracks. Either.tint. . or whether the average fan will t." frozen out in the future when promoters refuse tn allow th-;ir projects to be televised. * » * ! It's a tough assignment in thi? nuclear world to say that something that looks possible just isn't going to happen. j But I saw the fight by television. • It wasn't the real thing—by far. ; And I'm voting that for many, many years somebody like Mike Jacobs \\-ill be able to count box office receipts of two or more , millions from those endless "bat- j ties of the century," even while , non-paying fans look on from their parlors. i There's no evidence that motion . pictures of big bouts have hurt actual attendance, though it's been j possible f'ir a long time to see a I championship contest at one-hundredth the cost of a ringside seat. ! If anything, films have helped ' build interest in fights. ! Of course, the movie versions; lack the suspense of the original. ' But you get suspense on the radio, j and the fact that the fight was i broadcast didn't seem to hurt the Louis-Conn take. And baseball attendance is hitting n new peak this year, despite the ability of fans to keep their pockets buttoned and enjoy pretty competent reports by radio. * * * No matter what science hns been able to produce so far, there's nothing to capture tho spirit of a hip sports event like being there to witness it yourself. An electrical excitement always goes with n championship fight' — an intangible something about the crowds that makes the spectator feel that he's part of the show. There were about 400 persons in a room looking at four television receivers at one party the night of the Louis-Conn affair. And while granting it wa.s a dull contest, there was little enthusiasm expressed when the fighters entered the ring, virtually none while the thing was in progress, and not a cheer when Joe floored Conn in the eishth round. For nil the excitement that screen generated, the audience might have been witnessing one of those movie travelogues. It's the guess here thnt when you don't feel silly cheering at a television receiver or y-llinp en- rourapement to a fipurc on a screen, you can start worrying about the boys at the box-office. HOW THEY Whirlwind Finish Gives Louise Suggs Women's Golf Title DES MOINES, June 29 (.•D— Louise Suggs, a frozen-fared fighting Georgian, roared from behind on the last six greens to whip former champion Patty Berg of Minneapolis, two up, in their 36-hole women's Western Open golf championship match over rain - drenched Wnkonda club today. Miss Stings, co-medalist with Miss Berg at the start of the week-long tourtiey, holed a sizzling 18-foot; putt on thp 33rd hole and grazed the 34th hole with a dramatic 85-foot chip shot which stopped 5 inches from the cup. Those two shots erased a two-hole lead by Miss Berg. Then Louise. 115-pounder from LHhia Springs, Ga., matched par on the final two holes to win them easily from the demoralized Patty, who had copped the Open in 1941 and 1943.
