Bill Thompson will defend his Logansport city open golf tournament championship for the next two weekends against a field of qpm- petitors, which may surpass 50. Thompson, who was sharpening his game Monday, while attempting to qualify for the U. S. Open at the Kenwood country club, Cincinnati, edged Dick Nethercutt in a special 9-hole playoff to win the title last year. Entries now being accepted by John Carithe'rs, manager of the Dykeman municipal links and Louie Quarandillo, pro-manager at the Country club course, will close at G o'clock Thursday evening. All players will be paired in foursomes for the first 35-holes of the 72-hole medal play tourney, then will be revised for the final 36, according to Carithers. Play will open Saturday with 18 holes over the Country club layout, followed by another round Sunday at Dykeman to complete the first half. The Country club again will host the city tourney entries Saturday, June 15, after which the golfers move back to Dykeman for the final 18 holes.

Weiss Denies Feuding With Casey Stengel NEW YORK (UP) — Reports that two of the New York Yankees' "sinful six" would be traded before the June .15 deadline popped up again today along with a front office statement that all was harmonious between General Manager George Weiss and Field Manager Casey Stengel. The report of friction in the Yankees' front office followed a disclosure Monday that six players—Mickey Mantle, Yogi Berra, Hank Bauer, Billy Martin, Whitcy Ford and Johnny Kucks—had been fined a total at $5,500 for their night club antics on May 15. Weiss, an astute judge of player talent best known for his lack of sentiment, declined al firs', to comment on the. fines or his reported feud with Stengel, but later released a statement in which he said "reported friction between Stengel and myself is wholly untrue." Minimizes Yank Troubles However, Weiss' statement served to minimize the Yankees' troubles rather than clarify them, since most of the fined players felt Stengel did not recommend moved the defending N.L. champs into a third place tie with Milwaukee, three games back of pacesetting Cincinnati. The husky first baseman broke a scoreless tie with his sixth home run of the season in the fifth inning, tallied again in Ihe seventh on Don Zimmer's two -out single and scored the Dodgers' final run in the ninth on a wild pitch by Philadelphia reliever Jim Hearn. Chnoli Gets Homer Gino Cimoli also homered for the Dodgers, who collected nine hits off loser Don Cardwell and Hearn. It was Cardwell's second setback against three victories. In Monday's only other major league game, Hank Foiles drove in two runs with a triple and a single to give the Pittsburgh Pirates a 6-5 victory over the New York Giants. Eight of the Pirates' last nine games have been decided by one run. The Pirates scored their decisive run in the fifth inning when John. », American Association W. L. Pet.

Promoter Emit Lence disclosed the exact date at a news conference and announced that the battle will be televised and broadcast nationally to homes at 9 p.m. c.d.t. over NBC networks for General Motors at a $175,000 fee, with a local blackout. .Any lingering doubts that Lence, wealthy dress manufacturer and an independent promoter, would be able to stage this extravaganza in defiance of the International Boxing Club were removed by the revelations that he had tied up with a top sponsor and a major network. Patterson, 22, and Jackson, 25, were present at the conference- lunch in a downtown restaurant. Patterson, who will be making his first defense of the crown, said, "It will be a much harder fight than the one Jackson and I had last June, before I became champion — because there's so much at stake now. And so I'm sure somebody'll be knocked out this time." His grin indicated he wasn't considering himself the potential victim. Jackson, who lost a split 12- round decision to young Floyd last June 8 at Madison Square Garden, declared, "We ain't personal friends no longer. This time there's noUiin.'
