Monday Evening, May 28, 1962. Logansport, Indiana Pharos-Tribune Seven Casper Wins 5 •it Open On Last By FRED DOWN UPI Sports Writer The San Francisco Giants and New York Mets are embroiled in baseball's newest vendetta—with the controversial "brush back" pitch the cause of all the excitement. ' ' Tempers flared so hotly during Sunday's doubleheader in • San Francisco that even Willie Mays —long noted as -a "peacemaker" —Jbeoame involved in the first •fight of his career. Willie, who had been low-bridged twice by Roger Craig, wound up throwing Elio Chacon with a body-slam.. And in the confusion the National League leading San Franciscans tossed the last-place M<its for another couple of losses, 7-1 in a breeze for Jack Sanford and Stu Miller and 6-5 with a four-run eighth-inning rally. The Giants thus retained their 'I'/a-game lead in the NL, while the Cleveland Indians regained first place in the American League with a 5-3 win over the Washington Senators. Dodgers Win Two The Los Angeles Dodgers swept a doubleheader from the Philadelphia Phillies, 5-2 and 2-1; the Cincinnati Reds downed the Chicago Cubs, 10-0; the Pittsburgh Pirates defeated the Houston Colts, 7-2, and the Milwaukee Braves shaded the St. Louis Cardinals, 4-3, in other ML games, The Minnesota Twins whipped the Chicago White Sox, 5-4 and 8-6; the Detroit Tigers scored a 5-1 victory afte r bowing lo the New York Yankees, 4-1; the Los Angeles Angels dropped their opeer, 3-2, but then beat the Kansas City A's, 6-3, and the i'Baltimore Orioles topped the Bos-' I ton Red Sox, 4-2, in the other AL action.

Cleveland, Giants Hold Slim Leads ' ' • > Mays in First Fight of Career Rambling . f At Random SPEEDWAY, IND.-The rotund pro from Apple 1 Valley, Calif., sat on the press bench, bending it deep in the'middle, and answered questions with a consistant smile on his face and a beer in his hand. "I only missed two greens today, the fourth and the ninth," said Billy Casper and upon suggestion added, "I only missed seven during the tournament.'.' When asked whether he thought his putting had'improved Sunday (He had complained during the previous three days that his-game on the greens was not what he would have liked.) Casper said, "Why should I complain, one stroke is as good as four." * • » 'I Birdied five with a four- footer, sh' from a foot-and-a-half, eight from 25 or 30 feet, 11 from around 10, 12 from two, 17, about 12 inches and then the one on 18." The last putt gave Billy a sensational 20-under par total of 264 and first, place money in the third annual "500" Festival Golf Tournament. * * * NEEDING a birdie four-on the 18th hole, (see story on this page) Casper, said he hit a "flat rock" to the green. He explained that he didn't want to go over with a three-iron and into the -stands beyond the green. "A three iron was probably the club," he said, but I knew a 'four would get me close." Earlier in the tournament Jim Ferree had hit over the green and behind the wooden platforms set up for use by. the television crews. Ferree argued that the structures should have been pulled down to enable him to have a clear shot, but was overruled by the PGA officials. After he hit his shot through- the structures he splashed his club in mund and sprayed it for several yards. As a result he drew a $100 fine. » » « Casper was as kind as lie could be when asked about the comparative toughness of the Speedway course as to the others on (he pro tour. "Playing conditions mode the course easy, as, the greens held very well. I'd say the front nine is pretty tough, but- the back side's not so easy. The back nine is full of potential birdies." Casper added that Herman Coelho's 30 on the front side Saturday must have been a sensational nine holes of golf. .- « * * JUST RAMBLIN — Ted Kroll, one of the top pros on the circuit, was forced to withdraw from the tournament after two rounds when notified of the death of his mother-in-law ... He was even par for the two rounds , . . Al Johnston, who won last week's Hot Springs Open, failed to make the cutoff for the final 18 holes. The cutoff was at 213,. even par, and Johnston was 216 '. ... Gardner Dickinson, another top pro, showed up for the tournament but withdrew before it started because of a neck ailment . , . Another top pro who failed to make the cutoff was Jerry Barber, Barber was 215 for 54 holes, despite a fine 68 on his third round . . . * * * Despite the fact that they are pros, many of them will, miss shots that look like something an everyday golfer will do. But seldom do you see a tee shot really duffed. The only one we saw in this category was by Mac Main of Virginia on the first hole in the final round. . . .Main was a little low with his club head and it .skipped into the ball sending it down the middle of the fairway, but only about 130 yards off the tee. When Mac got to the ball he said . smiling, "Wow." * * '» V THIS OBSERVER saw a putter, the likes of which we've never seen before. Harold Kneece used' a blade that had the shaft on the oiitside of the club head. Most putters the shaft runs down the back side of the club head, this one was reverse. . . .Charles Sifford, the only Negro pro.'on the tour,, turned in a firie performance. . . .He finished seven under at 277. . .He made 1 one .of the finest recovery shots in the tourney when he pushed his tee shot Sunday on the second hole behind a big tree and then wedged his second over the limbs to within ten feet of the hole and dropped his putt for a birdie... . .Jim Ferrier, a long-time favorite on the tour and winner of 21 titles, was forced lo drop a ball" over his shoulder in the middle of the third fairway/after a fan stepped on his. ball. •'.- .' .Ferrier had a sensational eagle on the 566-yard sixth hole. He was 'just short in two and chipped in with a seven iron. The ball wedged against the pin and he walked up and moved the flag to allow the ball to settle in the hole. .... * * » r We noticed a striking resemblance between Buster Cupit, who finished 12-under, and the former sports editor of the Pharos-Tribune, Rob Brcon. However, we understand that's where any similarity ends. No' offense to Mr. Bacon's golf game. . . . .Doug Ford, who is known as a fast player, kept his three-some going at such a pace that many times there were two holes vacant behind it. ... * * * ON THE THIRD round Joe Campbell hit his second shot on 18 into the creek in front ""of the green. It wedged itself in a hole and Campbell thought it was made by an animal—a muskrat, which would enable him to drop back without penalty. However, a PGA official thought different. Campbell said, "It I stick my hand in there, and get bitten will you believe me?" But the ruling stood and Campbell was' penalized two strokes, which cost him the lead at the end 'of 54 hole's. . . . Later Casper, who was' playing with Campbell at the time, was asked if he thought it was a muskrat hole. 'Casper replied, "How would I know? We don't have muskrats in California, except maybe at Disneyland." DICK WATTS Bunker Hill AFB Softball Team Wants Area Games The Bunker Hill AFB Softball team is looking for games thai will be played on Friday night's during the summer. Tech, Sgt. Laeman Witsman says anyone interested in playing the team can contact him al extension 2226 at the base or al home, Murdock 9-8424. 'Witsman said' he expects his team to be very strong this sea son and hopes to-play the strongest teams in the area. The 'base team will open its schedule the second week of June. HOCKEY GROUP MEETS " BASIS '(UPI) - A total of 16 countries will compete in 61 matcnes to decide -the field hockey championship at the '1964' Olympic Games in Tokyo. . The executive committee of the International Field Hockey Association, which met here Sunday, also decided that each country will be allowed to bring 18 players. Drivers, Crews Test Cars for Last Time INDIANAPOLIS (UPI)-HDrivers and pit crews got in their final iractice today, in preparation for he Memorial Day 500-mile auto race and what could be a renewal of a racing:,duel between defend- champion A. J. Foyt of iouston, Tex,, and qualifications record holder Parnelli Jones, Tor- ranee, Calif. The Speedway, closed since'the end "of qualifications. May.'20, opened for three hours of fuel, carburetion and tire tests and pit stop practice for the 33 cars qualified for Wednesday's race. Since the qualifications . ended, most cars have been torn down 'or final cleaning and inspection and to replace worn or defective parts. After the .practice 'session, .there will be no running on the 2%-mile ovat but .crews may have addi- .ional tire-changing practice and complete, race day strategy in the 3its without starting, their engines. The pre-raee. activity will end with Tuesday's traditphait drivers' meeting. While the Speedway has been closed, there 'was one chance for drivers to get in some driving :ime Sunday although not in the :ars they will run at the Speedway. Foyt and Jones made the most of it with a nip-and-tuck duel in the 50-lap sprint car feature Sunday at Indianapolis Baceway necessary. Park. Jones, pole-sitter for the "500" with- a qualifying speed of .belter than 150 mph, was also the pole position ..winner .Sunday. He and Foyt battled for 37 laps before Foyt grabbed the lead and held on to win by less than a lap. Foyt won the same race last year, as 'a prelude to his "500" victory. Elmer George, Speedway, an- olher "500" entrant was third with Bob. Matfiouser, Omaha, Neb., fourth, and Jim Hurtubise, Lennox, Calif., fifth. Hurtubise also is .entered in Wednesday's race. Foyt, who picked up-$1,000 for the afternoon's work, 1 won the feature at ;a new track record average speed of 90.15 mph. Foyt -also set a new record of 2:30.92 in winnng one .of the six- lap heats but it was eclipsed in the next heat by Stan Bowman who won ir! 2:28,20. Bowman was eliminated from, the feature when his car caught fire; on the, backstretch in the first lap. He was not injured. ', Purpose of today's Speedway practice session was to determine how fast and how far each driver can go before he must make a -pit stop for new tires and fuel. Some of the top drivers, especially those who qualified early, ran carburetion tests during the recent heat wave, but the onset of humid weather made new tests BY DICK WAITS Sports Editor, Pharos-Tribune SPEEDWAY, INI). - George Bayer'and Jerry Steelsmith made i Frank Merriwell out of Billy Jasper Jr., here late Sunday af- .ernoon. Bayer Koline Says Luck Has Just Evened Things Up By NORMAN MILLER UPI Sports Writer NEW YORK OUPI) - Al Kaline of the Detroit Tigers grinned from behind the huge plaster cast that covered the upper half of his body, and amidst -his discomfort he. joked and philosophized. "What am I going to do for the next few weeks?" he asked, re-- peating a newsman's question. "I'm going to wait 'for my wife to have a baby." His wife, Madge, is expecting their .second child late in June. "I guess I won't be able to help her much when it comes, though, will I?" he remarked smilingly. "It was just tough luck," Kaline said, referring to the broken collarbone he suffered Saturday in making a diving somersault catch of a game-ending short fly hit. by Elston Howard of. the Yankees. ""I've been lucky, too. It all evens up." - .,,. The cast which epcased'lhe injury reached from, -the base of Kaline's neck to his. belt-line and .covered ' his right arm to the wrist. It locked his arm in a.bent position as though he were throwing a baseball. "Sure, it's tough," K a line That's the taste you get with FLEISCH MANN'S GIN $Q.99 M WMF. THE FLEISCHMANN BSTItUNS COUP,, NEW yOKK, CUT V '- •-'•'.: agreed as he sat in manager Bob Scheffing's office at Yankee Stadium and waited for his Tiger leammates to dress before leaving for their trip back to Detroit by plane. "From the start, this lookec like' the best season I've ever had," he said. His batting aver age is .336 with 13 home runs anc 30 runs batted in. "But if I had it lo do again today, I'd dive for lhat ball the same) way," he went on. "That's the only way I know how to play Bay Eagles er, Steelsmith Get On 18 for 265s and Steelsmith rushed home with beautiful, eagles on the par five 18th hole and finished with 72-hole totals of 265. But Casper, playing in the last threesome with Bill Collins and Dave Hill collected a birdie four and won the '500' Festival Open golf tournament with a 264 total, 64 on the last 18 holes of play. CASPER'S total was a new tournament record, breaking by six strokes the previous mark sot by Doug Ford two years ago. It was also the'lowest score accumulated during the 1962 professional golf tour. Casper picked up $9,000 for the effort while Steelsmith and Bayer collected $3,800 each. The pro from Apple Valley, Calif., said because of the fact that entering the final round there were "at least a dozen" golfers who had a chance to win the tournament that v he didn't want to know how the.others were doing and didn't ask anyone until he approached the 17th green on the final round. . It was here he turned to his caddy, John Shorn, and simply asked, "John, am I winning the tournament?" Shorn replied "Yes." But, o£ course, at this time, Shorn, nor anyone else, knew of the eagles-that were turn ed in by Steelsmith and Bayer. So, when Casper dropped his birdie putt on the 17th and approached the 18th lee he asked his caddy what he needed to win. I almost fell over when he said I still needed a birdie." BIG BAYER had belted his tee shot right down the middle . on the 488-yard par-5 18th and stuck his second shot 20 feet'from the hole leaving him with a slightly down hill putt with just a little slant. Although not known as a good putter, Bayer's putt was in all the way and the large -gathering around the green roared its approval. Bayer had a 63 for the day. Steelsmith probably realized ex- actly what he needed to tie Bayer or tlie lead. His second shot came to rest a mere three feet rom the hole and he dropped his >utt for the eagle. Then came Jasper. HIS TEE SHOT was in the middle, about 280 yards out. He .said ater he would have preferred to lit a three-iron for his second shot, but his lie was rather snug on the fairway and feared scream- ng the shot over the green if it wasn't hit perfectly. Knowing a jirdie could be obtained from be- ng just short and then chipping up dose to the hole, he hit a four roil that was only a foot short of. the putting service. He putted 'rom the apron to within three 'eet of the hole and then dropped .he putt for the title. , This was his third tournament victory of the year, having previously won the Greensboro and Miami Open tides. The paycheck jave him earnings of $41,208 for .he year, but he still trails Arnold Palmer who has collected nearly $60,000. BRUCE CRAMITON 01 Australia and Bill Collins had 268 to pick up $2,450. apiece, Dave Ragan was sixth with 269 and $2,100,' Gary Player, Don Fairfield and Joe •' Campbell shared seventh money, $1,733 each, with totals of 270 and Al Geiberger and Buster lupit had 272 totals, A total of 43 players cracked par 284 on the S]>eedway course. ball." Dr. Sidney Gaynor, the Yankee team physician who set th broken collarbone, said K a 1 i n e probably would be lost to the. gers for nearly two months.
