(UP) 4 —A par-smashing field of sholmak- ei-s today took out In full cry behind a veteran of the pro rnnks who put together two ot the season's finest rounds of tournament golf to take the halfway lead in the S10.000 Richmond Open.

He led the field with 132 for the | two rounds. | Although nearly every hig name golfer In the star-studded international field was equalling or bettering par. Harrison was really blistering the course. He clipped 12 strokes off regulation figures for the 3G holes nnd built himself a three-stroke lead over the crowd. For 36 holes, Harrison has averaged just a bit more than three and one-half strokes per hole. Harrison wn s 12th leading money- winner of 1947, collecting $9,229 while winning tournaments at Reading, pa., Reno, Nov., and Honolulu.

The first day he set a course mark of G5 and followed yesterday with a 67. In second place behind Harri.son were a pair of lesser-lights—young Felice Torza of Torrington. Conn.. and Ed Furgol of Pontiac. Mich. They each had 135 totals. Most ot the big name stars were a long way behind Harrison with what appeared tn bo little chance of catching up. In third place, all by himself, was amateur Douglas Ford of New York city with a 136. High School Rule Poomerongs on Czar of Baseball NEW YORK.

The New York Yankees, latest club to he slapped by Chandler with a S500 fine for allegedly signing an ineligible player, replied with a quiet but tact-barbed statement designed to prove that they violated neither the letter nor the spirit of the law In signing 18-year-old pitcher Harry Nicholas. This was a different fact than the one employed by the Chicago White Sox several months ago when General Manager Leslie O'Connor ftatcly refused to pay a fine on the .same charge. The Sox got nowhere in their loud and brassy protest and O'Connor eventually had to pay the fin?. So the Yankees took their swipe at Chandler another way: They simp- threat that the U.
