SUNDAY, JUNE 17,1962 THE PHAROS-TRIBUNE and LOGANSPORT PRESS, LOGANSPORT, INDIANA PAGE SEVEN GETTING AWAY WITH IT OAKMONT, Pa, (AP) - Rookie Jack Nicklaus surged back witji a 'inal round 2-under-par 69 Saturday and tied heavily favored Arnold Palmer for the 62nd National }pen Golf Championship with a '2-hole score of 283. They meet in an 18-hole playoff Sunday. The fabulous Palmer, who has Davies Amateur Over Povall 1-up HOYLAKE, England (AP) California slugger Richard Davies won the British Amateur Golf Championship 1 up Saturday after mastering his own jangling nerves and outlasting Welshman John Povall in the 36-hole final. Boom-Boom Davies, so called because of his long drives, was the 12th American to win this tournament, first held at Hoylake in 1885. The 31 - year - old Pasadena, Calif., real estate man musl have been one of Ihe happiest winners on record. He let out a big Indian war whoop and jumped in the,, air when he wrapped up the struggle on the 36th green. The last previous American winner was Deane Beman of Silver Spring, Md. in 1959. Davies, who reached the quarter-finals in one of his two previous attempls in this lournament while in the Navy in the mid- 1950s, won four of the first five holes in the mornipg over the 6,932-yard links. It looked like a runaway for the unsung American whose most important previous victories had been the Southern California Amateur and his own club title at the Annandale Country Club in Pasadena. The handsome, broad-shouldered bachelor swept lo a 2-up lead at the end of the 18-hole morning round although both he with an 81 and Povall with an 82 were well over the 36-36—72 par for the.historic Royal Liverpool course. Povall, a 23-year-old former professional, tore into the 6-foot-2 Davies with determination in the afternoon round. For a time it looked as though the short, fair- haired Povall would win renown as. a sort of giant killer from Cardiff. The Welshman won the 20th, 21st, 22nd and 23rd and completely changed the complexion of the match, going from 2 down lo 2 up. '42 Yanks, Cards To Hold Region ST. LOUIS (AP)—Sixteen'mem. bers of the 1942 St. Louis Cardinals and 16 members of their World Series rivals that year — the New York Yankees -- have indicated they will be in St. Louis for a reunion July 1 at Busch Stadium. They will be introduced in ceremonies prior to the Cardinal game with the Pittsburgh Pirates and given a chance to pilch or hit in an abbreviated game. The 1942 Redbirds staged one of the best stretch drives in base' Davics steadied ant 1 , got one I ball annals, winning 38 of their back by winning tht 24th but dropped back again to 2 down when Povall won the short 29th with a par 3. Davies bounced back and won the 30th. After halving the 31st, the American sighed with relief when he squared Ihe malch on the. 32nd. A beautiful No. 3 iron approach set up his birdie 4 while Povall two-pulled from 5 feet. The 33rd proved decisive. Davies sent a chip to within 4 feet and rolled in the putt for a 4. Povali missed from 6 feel for a 5. Once in front again, Davies pro. lecled his lead through the la.st three holes which were halved. The standard of play was better in the afternoon with Davies shooting a 76 and Povall a 75. Rookie shortstop Tom Tresh has been in Ihe Yankee syslem since 1358. He's a swilch-hilting son of Mike Trcsh, former American League catcher. BILLY NOT BUFFALOED last 44 games to overcome a lO'/i- game- lead Brooklyn held in mid- August. The Cards won 106 games that season, Brooklyn 104. The Yankees won 193 games, finished first by nine games. St. Louis beat the Yanks 4-1 in the 'World Series. US Girls Keep NetCupLeod WIMBLEDON, England (AP)The United States' lennis girls kept their hold on the Wightman Cup Saturday with a 4-3 victory over a British team that made its big effort too l?.te. Darlene Hard of Montebello, Cali/., clinched the triumph quicker than mosl people expected. In 35 minutes of driving and volleying she crushed Christine Truman 6-2, 8-2 in the first malch of the day. That gave the Americans a win- ni/ig 4-0 lead. They had taken the first three matches Friday. Britain's girls then won the next three matches, and the 6,000 fans in Wimbledon's sun-splashed No. 1 court had something to cheer about after all. Ann Haydon, the fighting left- hander, clowned Mrs. Karen Hanlze Susman of Chula Vista, Calif., 10-8, 7-5. Deirdre Cattl playing in her First Wightman Cup singles, beat Nancy Richey of San Angelo, Tex., 6-1, 7-5. Finally Miss Truman and Miss Haydon scored a 8-4, 6-3 doubles win over Miss Hard and Billie Jean Moffilt of Long Beach, Calif. The big, shining cup, standing at the side of the court and filled with red and while carnalions, has now been won by the Americans 28 times. Britain has won it only six times. The international series began in 1923.

He stroked the )utt boldly and it spun past the cup, rolling three feet away on he lightning fast greens. He could have missed it—under he most intense of pressures— >ut he didn't. The muscular Masers champion from Latrobe, Pa., 3anged the ball into the back of he cup and he thus finished with an even par 71. Thus, one of the open's oldest raditions was maintained, no man has ever come to the final lole, needing a putt to win and sunk it. .

It was reported the Senators received more than the $20,000 waiver price. Woodling is expected to join the Mels in time for Sunday's doubleheader at New York with tile Chicago Cubs. Washington acquired Woodling from Baltimore for $75,000 in the American League expansion draft —a sweep which even the great Ben Hogan never achieved. Hogan won three of them in 1953, but failed to.play in [he PGA. Palmer and Nicklaus, two of the biggest hitters and fiercest competilorsMn modern golf, were paired in the opening two rounds of the tournament. During ihis stretch, Palmer had an edge, shooting 71-68 to Nicklaus' 72-70. The battle for the 62nd Open, played in sweltering heat over the Oakmont's awesome string of furrowed sand traps and rolling table-top greens, developed into a two-man battle in the afternoon after other challengers had fallen off the pace. Phil Rodgers, Ihe ruddy-faced ex J Marine and son of a San Diego, Calif., auto salesman, made a strong run for it, but took bogeys on the 60th an,d 70th holes for a 72 and 285. This tied him with Bobby Nichols, the handsome, 24-year-old Kcntuckian, who shared the lead with Palmer at the 54-hole mark. Nichols finished with a 73, after going over par on two of the last four holes. in 1960. Previously, he played Cleveland, Pittsburgh and the New; York Yankees. He was with Cleveland and Baltimore twice. OAKMONT, Pa.

Sec.ftvsfcfff'es Jo Europe for A Series Of/'ar/eys WASHINGTON (AP)—Secretary of State Dean Rusk will fly to iurope Tuesday for a series of conferences aimed at forging closer U.S. ties with Western Euro- )ean nations themselves moving .oward greater unity. Rusk plans to tell Allied leaders :hat the United States is not op- losed to close -cooperation be- .ween West Germany and France so long as it develops without per- 1 to the larger unity of the Atlan- ic Alliance. The chief U.S. diplomat is ex- )ectcd to urge wide support among Allied governments for 'ormation of a U.S.-supplied nuclear force under command of TO instead of the development of national nuclear forces favored by President Charles de jaulle for France. The U.S. government believes slrongiy (hat (he De Gaulle plan .0 make France an independent nuclear power is a divisive ele- nent within the alliance and that a multi:nalion approach to the problem of Europe's nuclear de- tenses is essential. Rusk will leave shortly after Monday midnight and is due in Paris Tuesday afternoon. Later in Ihe week he will fly to West Berlin, where he is expected to make a brief speech, then on to Bonn, [he West German capital. In following days he will visit Rome, London and Lisbon. The whole series of talks will occupy about 10 days. The trip has been widely described as a fence-mending mission but Rusk has insisted to associates that it is much more significant than that. Slate Department officials say the Atlantic Alliance, which is now a. dozen years old, is enter ing a new phase in which there is major emphasis on the development: of much greater economic and political unity in Western Eu. rope. The United States is doing everything possible to encourage this welding of national resources into a virtual united ftaies ol Europe.
