' Whether the ptogram Is success* ful or rtoi won't be determined until a month from today when the play is finished in the 17th Walker Cup golf matches between Brit- Bin and the United States. The Walker Cup, a rather un imposing stiver pitcher which represents the top prize in amateur golf, will be presented the winning team. If the Americans win—as they! have in 15 other Walker Cup matches-they will be the heroes,! of course. ! But if the British win. they^ ,won't be the heroes. | The heroes will be a group of middle-aged Britons standing almost in the background. They will be the men who formed the selection committee which found, helped to train, and enthused the British team, Win or lose, the team was hard to find The selection committee started work four years ago when British golf was low. The Americans had just won the Walker Cup by 10 matches to 2 in, of all places, St. Andrews—the home of golf. The Royal and Ancient Golf Club, thoroughly unhappy about, the thrashing told the selectors, "find 10 men good enough to beat the Americans in 1959." | First the selectors got up a big'-.- ^| • V« •" list of "possibles" and began whit: flf^iM Hm_T|ltlA VAPIll i neir via-1 ime rorm Held, A former Yankee, Es On Home Run Binge SHOTPUTTER — Gerald Slacoc, DC Soto sophomore, warms up for the Ottawa Interdenominational Relays Friday at Cook Field.

Groia Seeks Coaching Job NEW ORLEANS (AP) - Remember Alex Groza, the big fellow who was the heart of Kentucky's 1049 national basketball champions? The 6-foot-7 All-America faded from the scene after the point shaving scandals wrecked the Wildcats. Groza came back into the pic lure when he applied for the heac coaching job at Loyola of the South. The New Orleans Catholic college has been looking for a sue cessor to Hank Kuzma for abou' four weeks. "I know I sinned," Groza said ii «p interview with sports write Peter Finney, "but I think I've done my penance. 1 hurt the game now I'd like to do it some good.' After all these years, why th desire to coach? "Well, I've never really bee away from the game," he said "I've gotten several boys scholar ships and done a lot of scouting I've been particularly helpful t Bruce Hale at Miami." The point - shaving scandal marred Groza and three of hi teammates. By trying to keep th score under a certain spread- for which they from gamblers received mone the Wildcats los a number of games. "I'll never be able to figure 01 why we did it," Groza said "Guess we got caught up in th times. It was being done by othe teams. So we went along." By ED WILKS Associated Press Sports Writer Don Drysdale and Johnny Ante- elli, a pair of young aces who ent a long way to go nowhere ast season, are back in business gain, flashing some of the old jarkle. It was Drysdale, a 22-year-old ight-hancler, who won 17 as a Na- onnl League sophomore and went Vest with the transplanted Dodg' rs lost season boomed as the tar of the Los Angeles staff. In- tead, he went wild and wound up vith a 12-13 record. Anloneltl, a 27-year-old south jaw who twice has been a 20 ame winner, didn't have It quite o bad when the Giants shifted to an Francisco. But his 16-13 rec- rd wasn't exactly what he had eon counted on to deliver. Wednesday night, things were different. Antonclli gave up a run n three singles in the first inning, hen blanked the Chicago Cubs on wo hits the rest of the way for 7-1 victory, his second. That left he Giants, who got a pair of homers from Orlando Cepeda and nothcr from Felipe Alou, with a 4-1 record in second place. Drysdale gave up eight hits, but no runs at all, squaring his record at 1-1 with his first com plete game as the Dodgers beat St. Louis 5-0. 'Milwaukee's first-place Braves (3-0) were idle, along with Phillies while Cincinnati (3-D took third by lianding winless Pittsburgh a fifth defeat, 10-5. Student Manager Is Named At OU By ED WILKS i Associated Preis Sport* writer The inevitable is getting a bit closer in the American League pennant chase. The world' champion New York Yankees are crowding in on first place — and ,hey might be there now except or Woody Held', a kid Manager Casey Stengel reluctantly traded away. Hqld, now 27, was an infielder- oulfielder, a guy ready made for Casey's multiple defense schemes, and showed promise of power. Held, traded to Cleveland last season, is hitting nothing but horn ers at the moment. His third hit in 17 at bats this year was his third home run (good for seven runs) in two days and beat winless Detroit 2-1 in 10 innings Wednesday. It also kept the Indians unbeaten through four games and pushed them into first place, half a game ahead of the Yankees. The champs, stopped only by rain so far, won their third 3-1 at Baltimore Wednesday night on Bobby Richardson's two-out, two- un double in the ninth. That umped the Yankees past the Chiago White Sox, who were bombed ff their unbeaten kick 10-8 by Kansas City, and slipped to third, ioston defeated Washington 7-3. Right-hander Cal McLish took he decision for Cleveland, giving p nine hits. He had a shutout ntil the eighth inning, when Edie Yost singled and Larry Doby ripled. A walk and Andy Carey's single et up Richardson's winning hit or the Yankees off losing reliever ack Harshman (0-2). Right-hander Jerry Casale won its first in the majors in his first tart for the Red Sox, beating the Senators with a seven-hitter and locking a wrap-up, thre-run horn- ;r over the faraway left-center ield wall in Fenway Park. Russ Kemmerer lost it.

Dick Tomanek and Russ Meyer couldn't put down the uprising Gorman took over with 7 runs already scored, one out and the bases loaded. Pitching coach Bob Swift said o Gorman's performance: "Three pitched balls and two popups. Yoi can't do much better than that.' Gorman struck out the first man to face him in the ninth.

Today he keeps a chart on Littier's temperature. He makes repeated phone calls to all sections of ; the country to check on the golfer's appetite, state of mind and putting touch. The reason: $190,610. "Somebody asked me if I planned to buy Littler again this year in the Calcutta pool at Las Vegas," Laine said today. "I said: 'If you had won nearly $200,000 on him, what would you do?"' The deep-throated warbler today headed for Las Vegas, where the $40,000 Tournament,of Champions begins next Thursday. Every year in the tournament competitors are sold at auction in the Calcutta pool which pays rich dividends to lucky purchasers. Laine and his wife, Nan, were motoring to the 1955 tournament where the singer was to serve as parttime auctioneer when the better half suggested: "I think it's only right you should be heard at the auction. Why don't you bid on that nice young boy we've been reading about, Gene Littler?" "Okay," said Laine. Frankie went to the auction deciding not to go over $1,500. Before he knew it he had bid $13,000 for Littler. Later he sold two 25 per cent pieces to a couple of fellows. Littler won. the tournament and Laine's little syndicate collected $72,900. The next year Lane bid Littler again at $16,500. Littler won and Laine collected $69,120. la 1957 Laine bought the young California player for $15,500. This time he collected $95,635 on a phenomenal third Littler triumph. Last year it took $20,000 to get the three-time winner, who finished in a tie for fourth, netting the singer $17,955.

But if they do, Manager Eddie Sawyer has decided the sign on the cellar door won't read: "Playboys of the National League." He made that clear Wednesday by fining right-handed relief pitcher Dick Farrell $250 for "conduct unbecoming a major leaguer" •namely, taking a poke at a mirror in the washroom of a bar with his pitching hand. The fine was one of the stiffest ever given a Phillie player. "I was fined, but I had it coming to me," Farrell remarked. "I was pretty damned disgusted with myself about losing that game to the Braves. All I had to do was hold them for one inning. I didn't do it." The Phillies had a 3-2 lead over Milwaukee Tuesday when Farrell relieved in the ninth. He gave up five hits and the Braves won 4-3 in the 10th. Farrell wouldn't discuss his night on the town, but he did say he hadn't injured his hand.

MOORE CHEV-OLDS We Rent Cars Detroit Boss Keeps Faith In Narleski DETROIT <AP)-"Things turn—for Ray and the entire team." That Is Manager Bill Norman speaking of his five-time losers, the Detroit Tigers, and his two- time loser, pitcher Ray Narleski. "He was just one lousy fly ball away from being a hero," Norman said disgustedly today of. Nar- leski's 2-1, 10-inning defeat at Cleveland Wednesday. "Now they can call us both bums if they want, but we'll ride this thing out together. We should have won it in the ninth." Narleski has suffered most In the club's five straight 1959 looses. He has made four relief appearances and has been hit hard in all of them. The right - hander has been charged with two defeats. We should have won the game in the ninth when we had runners on first and third and nobody out," said Norman. "Nine times out of ten Ray would have come home a winner." "He's a pro. I haven't lost an ounce o! faith in him." Norman can speak with some authority on Narleski. He was Narleski's first manager when the pitcher came out of high school and had a 2-10 record at Wilkes- Barre. Scores From OTTAWA BOWL N.
