Wall Leading Play at Vegas After Hot 66 LAS VEGAS, Nev. ff — Golfers in the $35,000 Tournament of Champions faced another windy day and the task of overhauling the surprise leader, Art Wall Jr today as play swung into the third round. Wall, 30-year-old pro from Po- eono Manor, Pa., held a two-stroke lead over his nearest challenger in the quest for the $10,000 first prize. The 72-hole tourney ends Sunday. Wall took command late Friday with a six under par 66. The per formance broke the competitive record for The Desert Inn Country Club 7,102-yard course and gave him a two day total of 135. It kept him in front of Gene Littler, the 1953 National Amateur champion, whose 68 put him at 137 for the midway mark, and four sShots ahead of Lloyd Mangrum who stands at 139. Doug Ford remained in conten tion with his second straight 70 lot 140. Tfd Kroll. who shared the leac ,n tiie'lnitiaJ round at 68, dropped back with a 73 for 141.

State Normal's Wolves, Illini NEW YORK-(NEA)-Boston Red Sox, probably figuring that Ted Williams talks enough for all of them, are playing it soft when the subject of Jackie Jensen's fast: si art is brought up. Jensen, the big blond who was brought to Fenway Park lo give the Bosox some pennant power from the right side of the plate, belted four fast home runs with two of them producing victories over the Yankees and Athletics. At the outset of spring training, it looked as if Lou Boudreau and Company made the wrong move in trading Mickey McDermott, an 18-game winner, and speedy Tom Umphlett for Jensen. But on the way north, the former California back walloped the Braves' pitching for a .447 mark and ended the grapefruit season with .326. Jensen didn't stop once th,cy began playing for keeps and more than took advantage of the left field wall at. Fenway, rapping three .over it. "We'll just wait and see on Jensen," Boudreau says. "It's too early for me to give an opinion on anything. As far as Jensen is concerned. I'll hold off until he's had a look at everybody around the league. And they've had a look at him, too." The Red Sox gave up a lot. for the former California gridder and one inaminate object probably will have as much to do with making or breaking them than any pitcher in the league. That would be, of course, The JACKIE JENSEN Wall, Boston's answer to a handball court. The sign at the bottom of the left field fence at Fenway Park says it is 315 feet from home plate, but when a right handed batter digs in, the thing seems practically on lop of him. f Until lust season, the Bosox were almost unbeatable at. borne, but: floundered badly on the road. The fence, you see, is not portable. Fellows like Walt Dropo, now with the Tigers, hurt themselves seriously outside of Fenway by trying to bit as if hey were at home. Jensen insists he has'nt nllerod Vis stance to get cozy with The Wall. "I'm swinging the same ns 1 did last year. I only hit. one homer in Boston Inst year nnd I haven't done anything nt all to try for the wall exclusively," he says. Boudroau concurs. "Naturally, a guy is going to be thinking of putting one out there, particularly if he's a right-hander," the Bosox boss points out. "But nothing hns cropped up in Jensen's swing so far thnl shows he's thinking loo much about it. You've got lo give that some time, if something does crop up—if, as you ask, he winds up pull crazy—1 hen we'll pul in some corrective measures. There arc a lot of parks in this league." While Jensen's early season work has been a bright spot foi the Red Sox, It's strictly in the nature of a bonus. His big value — and the jury hasn't even ar rived to debate on Ihis one- should come somewhere arounc Miiy 15. Thai's when Mr. T or Hit •Splendid Splinter of wlial-havo you, otherwise Ted Williams puts bis big frame in Iho lineuj iind Boudrenu inserts Jensen behind him in the batting order That svill give Jackie all the chances be needs lo refute claims that he leaves too many guys on base. 3 ,:ioo .:>"! .ijo r> .441 .:>oo .too 3 4 .CT .:>0n .375 l' a Now York 3 5 ,37:i .114 .333 '2 x-FigurPs do not include night names.
