Houston Golfer Fires 69, Ties For NCAA Bid WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass., June im-uernie Magnussen of Stan ford and Phil Rodgcrs of Hous ton, a couple of tow-headed college kids who already havc earned masters' degrees in golf, shot two-under-par 69s Monday and led the first day of qualifying in the 1st National Collegiate golf tournament.; Magnussen, a . Wlnnetka, 111., boy who went' west to study engineering, and Rodgcrs, a. California who migrated to Texas, shot duplicate rounds on the mountain-rimmed 6,630-yard Ta-conic course. They both scorched the shorter front nine then fought to stay even the rest of the way. Magnussen, sinking birdie putts of five, 10 and four feet on the fifth, sixth and seventh holes, was four under par when he holed a, 20-foot chip on the 13th. But he took three bogies from there on .for a round of 32-3769. Rodgcrs', claiming he hit only "one or two" greens, cahnned a 12-foot birdie putt on the 18th green to tie for the lead. Justice Cards a 71 Par for the . hilly Taconic course is 35-3671 and the back nine... with two par five holes and two long par fours,- proved a big obstacle' for. the college golfers. Only a few equalled or bettered standard figure's on that side although a cool, -clouxjy and almost windless day seemed made to order for good golf. Dick Whctzle of North Texas State, the Southern Intercollegiate champion; Dick Siderowf- of Duke and Ab Justice of Oklahoma State shared the runnerup spot- with par 71s. Nearly a dozen players had 72s. Among those at1 72 was Art Hall, another Oklahoma State en: try. Tom Black of Oklahoma university posted a 73 and Jerry Pittman, Tulsan who plays for Southern Methodist, had a 75. Two more days of qualifying remain before the 64 low scorers tangle in match play for the individual Jitle. Houston Looks Potent Because of the big field more than 300 entered although not all started the 36-nole qualifying test was split three ways. About half of those who played Mon day will shoot their second round Tuesday. The others will play i again Wednesday and a third group will start Tuesday and fin-1 ish Wednesday. I Until they're all through 36 boles, the team title can't be determinid. But on Monday's play it shapes up as a battle between Houston, winner the past two years, and Southern California. With Rodgcrs' 69, Houston had a 72 by Frank Wharton, a 73 by Jimmy Hiskey and a 74 by Bob Pratt. Al Gcibcrger and Bud Bradley, both former National Junior champions, shot 72s for Southern Cal and Bob Howe had a 73 and Bob McCallistcr a 77. Stanford, Rollins, Florida State and Oklahoma State also were among the team contenders.

Casper Snares Title at Flint By One Stroke FLINT, Mich., June 23 (A Bill Casper jr. won the $52,000 .Flint Open golf tournament Monday in a dramatic clutch performance mat earned to the 18th green. . The hefty 26-year-old from Ap ple Valley, Calif,, calmly stroked in a 314 foot-putt the final stroke of the rain-delayed tournament and the blue chip showing earned him $9,000. first place money. Casper had a 72-hole score of 285, good enough -for a one-stroke Victory. He fired a one-under-par 71 over the, rain-clogged , Warwick Hills course at nearby Grand Blanc. Casper edged Ted Kroll of .Sarasota, Fla., the .third-round leader, and fast finishing Arnold Palmer, the Masters champion from Latrobe, Pa. Palmer Post 6 Kroll had a 75 and Palmer a 69 the best round of the day and they carried the battle down to the wire. The final day's play was 'delayed two hours by a downpour and the final threesome finished in near darkness' and chilling temperature. After going over par on the 17th hole, Casper knocked his second shot over the green at the 18th. Casper's ball came to rest 40 feet from the pin and about five feet off the edge of the green. Casper started to chip up, changed his mind and used a putter. The ball went 3',4 feet past the cup but Casper put it squarely in the center coming back. Bolt Tits for Fourth His four - day total was only three strokes better than par over the 7,280-yard layout, the longest on the pro circuit. . Tommy Bolt, ' crowned U. S. Open champion . last week, finished with, a 74 and tied Doug Ford for fourth place with 287. Boit led the Flint tournament the first two rounds before Kroll captured .the lead Sunday. Kroll tried gamely to tie Casper. Realizing lie needed a 20-foot birdie putt to do it, he went for the cup but the ball came to rest inches away.' Casper, winner of the Bing Crosby and New Orleans tournaments, never was' far off the pace in this, one of the richest tournaments in golf. The mild-mannered Californian trailed ' the first day by' one stroke, fell two strokes back at the halfway , point and . started Monday's round three strokes off the pace. Palmer and Kroll each won $3,800 for second place while Bolt and Ford won $2,450 apiece.

MacKay Wins With Blisters At Wimbledon WIMBLEON, England, June 23 WV-Barry MacKay, America's only heal hope for the Wimbledon men's singles title, played through to a first round victory Monday after tearing open a blister on his racket hand. The 6-4 youngster from Dayton, Ohio, defeated Enrique Martinez, Spain's No. 4 player, 4-6, 6-2, 6-2, 6-1. He experimented with his service and concentrated on learning to read the bounce of the ball off the grass in the first set. Most of the American contingent, including Budge Patty of Los Angeles, and Paris, the 1950 Wimbledon champ, marched through the opening round. Mike Green of Miami Beach, Fla., had to go five sets to make it and Gardnar' Mulloy, the veteran from Coral Gables, Fla., and Bob Perry of Los Angeles each went four sets to victory. Bill Quil- nan. oi ocaiue ana i-year-oia Earl Bucholz of St. Louis brushed back their opponents in straight sets. Among those to lose was Gil Shea, fourth-ranked American player from Los . Angeles who bowed to Ulf Schmidt of Sweden 1-6, 6-4, 6-2, 6-4. John Cranston of San Marino, Calif., also was beaten by India's Ramanathan Krishnan 6-3, 6-4, 1-6, 6-3 and Eugene Scott of St. James, N. Y., bowed to. Australian Paul Hearn-den 6-8, 6-0, 6-2, 6-3. Cooper's Leg Hurting Top-seeded Ashiey Cooper of Australia, limping a bit from a severely strained right thigh mus cle, dropped a set to flying of ficer Geoffrey Owen of her majesty's Royal Airforce before winning his match 10-8, 3-6, 6:4, 6-1. The Australian champion is un dergoing daily electrical treat ment for the injury. There were several semi-invalids in the field in addition to Cooper and MacKay. Jaroslay Drobny, the 1954 champ, was groaning from muscle pains; Maria Bueno, the 18-year-old Brazilian girl who is expected to give the New York's Althea Gibson, the defending champion, and Britain's Christine Truman a run for the women's title, has bur sitis in her; right shoulder. Foul but familiar English weather cut the opening crowd for the 72nd Wimbledon to only 17,291, the smallest in nearly 20 years. Twice play was interrupted by rain. High winds whipped the No. 2 court throughout the MacKay match. In Florida and California people would wear overcoats on a day like this and wonder what had gone wrong with the weather. MacKay Steadies MacKay, seeded eighth played the first set as though tennis was a new game to him. Once he learned the tricks of the grass, his service was working and the Spaniard was well beaten. "My hand is hurting," said MacKay. "But I have something to put on it every night and I think it will hold out." Patty used all his old familiar tactics the delicate stop volleys and the finely-angled ground strokes as he stroked his way past Arthur Kendall of Australia 6-3, 6-3, 6-4. Green, once regarded as Amer ica s bright young hope, scraped home against Way's A. Lazzarino 4-6, 6-2, 3-6, 6-1, 6-2 only because opponent tired and went to pieces in the last .two sets. Perry also had to struggle to get past Lew Gcrrard of New Zealand 6-4, 6-1, 3-6, 8-6. The match appeared certain to go to a fifth set when Perry was down 3-5 in the fourth but the California gritted his teeth and pulled out some fine passing shots to take the set. Mulloy Trims Latin ' Mulloy had no difficulty in dis posing of Andres flammcrsley of ; Chile 6-2, 6-2, 4-6, 6-3, using every shot in the book. At timels. the 44-year-old Mulloy- got leg weary but he had more craft and skill than Chilean. Buchholz swept past 'Carlos Fcrnandes of Brazil 6-4, 6-4, 6-3. Quillian elim- i inated Pete Nicholls of New Zealand 6-3, 6-4, 6-2. Drobny won . frantic applause from the crowd with a 2-6, 6-3, 3-6, 6-3, 6-2 victory over France's Robert Haillct. The self-exiled Czech who plays officially for Egypt but lives in London, seemed to be nursing the ankle he strained Saturday. He looked a beaten man after the third set but rallied to score probably the most popular vic-tory-of the day. Mai Anderson, the Australian who won the U. S. title last summer, ousted P. J. Lai of India in straight sets 6-4, 6-4, 7-5. Among the matches postponed until tomorrow was one betweeen Australian Mervyn Rose and Vladimir Skonecki, self-exiled Pole. 11 n CAR LOANS?
