Ifonday Evening, June 10, 1957. Logansport, Indiana, Pharos-Tribune Fifteen Henry Takes Wide Lead In City Golf Play Has Nine-Stroke Lead Halfway Thru Tourney Sets Torrid Pace After 36 Holes of Competition With 135 Total; Bill Thompson Second. Frank Henry, Jr. moved into a commanding nine-stroke advantage Sunday at the half-way point of the Logansport city open golf tournament with a 36-hole total of 135. Henry added a sensational 34-32— 66 over the Dykeman links Sunday to his 35-34—69 carded Saturday at the Country club. The leader's score is seven-under par figures. He was one-under at the Club and six-under at the city links. Defending champion Bill Thompson is in the runnerup position with his 36-hole total of 144. He fired a 73 Saturday and added a 71 Sunday. Only three other golfers finished under the 150-stroke mark. Bob Buck shot 74-72 for 146 and third place; Ken Stalberger carded 6978 for 147 and Harold Jamison put rounds of 74 and 75 together for 349. Nethcrcutt Falters First round leader Dick Nethercutt, who turned in a pair of 34s for a two-under 68 at the Country club, slumped surprisingly to a pair of 41s for an 82 over the Dykeman layout. That gave him a 150 and a share of sixth place. Another early leader, Clayton Bunker slipped to 81, after a Saturday round of 69, while Bob Lowe fired a 71 and 84. The players will be grouped into flights for next weekend's finishing play. The schedule will remain in tact, with 18-holes Saturday at the Club and 18-holes Sunday on the city links. Awards are scheduled for the four top performers in the championship flight and the top two in the other divisions.
