Aittornoy Sport Parade By OSCAR FRALEY United Press Sports Writer TOLEDO, Ohio (UP)—The most lonesome man in the world teed off today in the first round of the U.S. Open golf championship. That would be Frankie Stranahan. And to look'at him, you have to figure he has everything — health, wealth and the kiss of the gods. But this is the sternest test ever faced by the kid from Toledo. A good golfer, Frank Stranahan. And, whether you listen to the stories of his harum-scarum growing up, or not, a fine fellow. He has a beautiful wife, a fortune in the bank and a bouncing 2-year- old son. He is, you might say, a man with everything. Played At 12 Yet Frank Stranahan grew up within five miles of the Inverness course where they started the Open today. At the tender age of 12 he played his first round oyer these rolling acres. That's a matter of some 22 years ago, this muscular blond being 34 now. His fatfier is the wealthy and influential R. A. Stranahan, founder of the Champion spark plug empire. R. A., as the old man is known, was the Ohio senior champion and, for many years, the president of this same Inverness club. Frank's step - brother, Jim Lewis, was the district champion. The club pro at that tim-e, a man named Byron Nelson, was the Ohio Open champion. All of this instilled in young Frank, at an early age, the desire to be a champion golfer. It was an ambition inspired and fostered by his dad, for R. A. was a man who never considered or accepted defeat. He battled mightily, in the business bazaars and at the legal bar, to build and protect his empire. From a lean start, he founded a gigantic industrial empire. So it stood to reason that when young Frankie showed an early interest in golf, R. A. decided that his son was going to be a champion, Won Amateur Twice He was, and is. Frank won the British Amateur twice, and a lot of other tournaments. But, despite all his wealth, he decided several years ago to make his own way in life and turn professional. "If I'm going to spend my life in golf," he said, "then I must make a living out of it." It horrified the family, one of the Toledo 400. Yet it is to Frankic's credit that he wasn't swerved. Still, as they teed off today in the Open, over a course which heard his baby wails, the handsome blond man is on a terrific spot. Everybody in •the area knows him and expects great things of him. -They figure that if he is ever going to be worlh a pinch of snuff he has to win it this time around on a course which he has known from childhood. NEW PERU DOCTOR George Teaboldt, Jr., of 301 Loveland avenue, Peru, who was employed as an extern at the Logansport state hospital during the summers of 1955 and 1956, received the Doctor of Medicine degree from Indiana university June 10.

City Council Debates How to Spend 2 Million LOS ANGELES (UP) — The city council today debated how and when to spend two million dollars requested by Mayor Morris Poulson for wooing major league baseball to Los Angeles. Mayor Poulson proposed the sum as a regular budget item oar- marked for the Brooklyn Dodgers should they choose to m6ve westward in 1958, but councilman Harold Harby pointed out it would be illegal to make a gift of public funds to the team. The city attorney's office, however, said use of such money would not be unlawful for access roads into a proposed ballpark site In Chavez Ravine, located near the junction of the ci'.y's sprawling freeway system. Councilman Everett G. Burk- ihalter warned he planned an 'effort ; to prevent use of the sum on the .site "because we are going a bit far here." Last-Place Colonels Knock Wichita From Lead in A. A. Race The Wichita Braves were toppled from first place by the cellar- dwelling Louisville Colonels, 5-3, in the American Association Wednesday night.

Senators in the ninth, and Indiana outfielder Neil Chrisley clouted a homer with one on in the eighth. Major League Leaders National League Player & Club G. AB R. H. Pet.
