i amBeals ead io Take onalOpen LOUIS — W) — The comer golf folks have been talking about for i Shears— Lewis W. (Lew) Wor- of Washington, D. C. — thun- sly has arrived, with the Na- ldpen crown perched jauntily fast-thinking head. . SJome- say it, was Sam Snead's floWoolBoylsh putting on the 18th gweti of their little playoff at the !&, LbtiiS Country Club yesterday tnAt gave 29-year-old Worsham a dramatic one-stroke Victory and a bkfet into golfdom's big money tosf&ket. 'Lew, a newly appointed professional at Oakmont. Pn., collected $2,600 for his triumph and figures tO 'grab some $20.000 more in testi- njtohials and attendant rewards htfed by. an open tltlist. But when Sammy from Hot Springs, Va.. blew a 30 H -inch putt for his losing 70, it was seconds after "fi/orshaw pulled a psychological -swifty— demanding that USGO Officials measure both bnlls to see Whq had the outside lie in the payoff 'taps for both. Sneafl had judged he \vns a fraction outside of where Worsham's bill had squirted after nicking the cup in a magnificent chip shot fiom the rim of the green; and stepped up to address the ball. ' Worsham cooly interrupted him and waved in the officials, armed vMth a tape measure, who took, several minutes to confirm what Snead had guessed— he was a half inch outside Worsham's ball on the op- posttc side of the cup and had first : But the interruption obviously nettled already-harrassed Snead, who -Was anxious to follow up his fWllng- first putt from 15 feet, a straggly short tap that left him the ffctftl 30U> inches shy. Like Worsham, he was anxious to get his putt In first and put the pressure on the last player. Snead was loss steady than before 'as he approached the ball the second' time. Worsham's justifiable Call for a measurement had its d^niaglng effect — some veteran ob- se'tvers said it was one of the cagiest str&tegems ever pulled in open competition. , . Sam's putt squirmed off to the right and missed the cup completely as a gallery of 5,000 groaned in sympathy. Worsham, his confidence skyrocketed, casually stepped up and knocked in his 29 ",L- inch putt for fch'fe-' title and a two-under-par 69 which climaxed four extremely steady rounds of 70-70-71-71—282 in regulation play. Murrell Jones Hills Like Fictional i" J. Ray Martin I BMA 'iBuslnecf Men's Assurance Co. *Llfa. Health. Accident Annuities, iHospltallzation. Group, All Ways, n N. Frost Phono 772 By the Associated Press His name is Murrell Jones but up in Boston the fans believe it should be "MerrfweU" Jones. For the big guy, who was acquired from the Chicago White Sox only last Saturday night in an even swap for Rudy York, got going for his new club like the fictional hero. Playing his first game in a Red Sox uniform, the 26-year-'old first baseman from Epps, La., smashed out a home run to help defeat his former mates 7-3.

Earlier in the game, Jones had singled in two runs to give him a total of six RBI's for the game. In the meantime the best York could do in his first day in a White Sox uniform was to get two singles In eight times at bat, both of his hits coming in the second game and having nothing to do with Chicago's scoring. The Red Sox moved into a second place tie with the Detroit Tigers, trailing the Yankees by one game. The Ynnkees had climbed Into the American League's number one position by virtue of a double win over the St. Louis Browns before 55.691 fans at the Yankee Stadium After combing Jack Kramer for a 10-4 victory in the opener of the double header, the Yanks, behind Randy Oumpert. eked out a 2-1 win against Bob Munchrief.

The battering Boston Braves blasted eight Pittsburgh pitchers for 29 hits to swamp the Pirates 13-4 and 12-3 in both ends of their double header and take over undisputed possession of first place in the National League. They lead the second place New York Giants by six percentage points. Lefthander Warren Spahn, helped by home runs by Sibbi Steti.
