Pott, a drawling, 27-year-old from Cape Girardearj, Mo., said his cenfidence didn't waver Sunday as he forged a closing round 35.35—70 for a 276 total and a four-stroke lead over Palmer. The victory earned him $9,000 and was his first tournament triumph of the year, boosting his earnings to $23,115. Palmer collected $4,600, which raised his 1963 earnings to $101,555, making him the first golfer to earn more than $100,000 in official money for one year. Pott started the Classic with a 67 for a first-round tie with U.S. Open champion Julius Boros and Miller Barber. Another sub-par 68 Friday put him on top alone and a 71 Saturday 'gave him a one-stroke lead over Palmer, who had a sizzling 66 in the third round. Arnie's army was out en masse Sunday in the crowd of 10,070 which trampled the magnificent 7,165-yard Firestone Country Club course, waiting for Pott to fold under Palmer pressure. The LSU graduate, who has been on the tour for seven years with only three previous victories, refused to yield. He bogeyed the first hole and fell into a tie with Palmer, hut regained his 'advantage with a birdie on the second hole. To add to the triumph, Pott's four-round total of 276 tied the course record set by Palmer last year. Palmer shot a 37-36—73 for an even par 280. Boros finished third with a 281 to earn $3,000 and Dav e Hill, shooting a closing 34-35—69, ended with 232 and $2,600. Masters and PGA champion Jack Nicklaus and British Open champion Bob Charles, the idol of I the left-handed swingers, tied for fifth place with 283 totals and won $2,200 each. Last Minute Entry Winner WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. (AP) Third-time champion Mrs. Anne Quast Welts and her victim, teenager Peggy Conley, hadn't planned to enter the 1963 Women's National Amateur Golf Tournament. But both 'got plenty of mileage out of their decisions, Mrs. Welts winning the 36-hole final Saturday 2 and 1 over the high school junior from Spokane, Wash. A previous winner in 1958 and 1961, Mrs. Welts' decision was made for her by her husband of two months. He is an attorney and she a history teacher at Mt. Vernon, Wash. High School. Mrs. Welts, 25, was a last-minute entry Mrs. Welts had played in only one other tournament, the Western Women's Amateus since last fall. Miss Conley, 16-year-old chubby, freckle-faced darling of the galleries, tasted her first major tournament when she got to the semifinals of the Western Junior girls event. She was beaten in the finals of the recent National Girls Tournament and decided to try the National Women's only because Albany, N.Y. is only 34 miles from Williamstown. Big Crowd For Softball Garden City Co-op, Rced-Stine-j metz Excavators, and Garnand i Furniture scored second-round' league slow-pitch softball wins: at Fansler Field here Sunday! night. !

In the opener, Co-op scored a key 11-6 victory over Christenscn Grain of Pierceville. Co-op had won the first round, and Pierceville is a leading second-round contender. Co-op had a 13-8 hitting edge. Mickey Mantle Will Prep for World Series Ewing. . . .second flight NEW YORK (AP)—Under the New York Yankees' master plan, Mickey Mantle will do little or no paying the rest of the season —but will devote the last five weeks to 'getting himself into prime condition for the World Series in October. Manager Ralph Houk said as much in an interview with The Associated Press today concerning Mantle's future. "I'd like for Mantle to play a :.inie in September," Houk said, "ard there is a possibility that he may. However, 1 am not going to take any chances with that loose cariilage of his. "It's there and it can pop at any time. . .just by getting out of the dugout, even. "Frankly, I am more interested in getting Mickey in shape for the World Series This is my prime objective, my master plan." Mantle except for several pinchhit appearances, has bean out of the Yankee lineup since June 5, when he broke a bone in his left foot climbing the cea^r field wall in Baltimore's Munici-1 pal Stadium. He was hitting .308 at the-time. The foot has healed, but another iniury in the form of a lo si; cartilage in !>is left knee was discovered in the meantime. This ! s what has kept the Yankees' siege gun out of the line-up. "Naturally I'd love to have M:-ntle in the line-up," said Houk. "But he's simply not ready. ' The foot appears completely healed, and the knee is gradually getting better. But it's slow prog- r.^3, and there's always a dan- er that something might happen to set him bacK " The loss of Mantle was expected to greatly damage the Yankees changes of repeating as American League champions. Happily for w ( uk and his men, it hasn't turned out tha» way. The Yankees were in first place by a few percentage points but trailed the Orioles by one-half a game when Mickey was sidelined. Instead of losing ground, the Yankees, in an all-out team effort, have spread-eagled the rest ot the field. In 84 games without their No. 1 slugger the Yankees have won 56 and lost 28, a 667 percentage. Leroy Rupp, Bruce Westwood, and Marion Melts each hit a double and single for the winners. Dave Fowler homered, doubled, and singled, and Jerry Roth tripled. For Pierceville, Gene Sloan doubled and singled, and Doug McGraw and Lorcn Cronin each singled twice. R H E Co-op .... 101 033 3 —11 13 6 i P-Ville ' 012 000 3 - 6 8 7 i Second game was a thriller, Welders Supply 5-4 with two out in the bottom of the seventh and final frame. The count was tied 4-all.
