Rosewall Upsets Hoad; Fry Wins Forest Hills (AP) -- Racket rifleman Ken Rosewall blasted the "grand slam" hopes of fellow Australian Lew Hoad and a 16- year dream came true for Akron's Shirley Fry yesterday in the finals of the Diamond Jubilee National Tennis Tournament. Stunning a crowd of 12,000 who came" out in 58-degree, topcoat temperatures to watch Hoad try to duplicate Don Budge's great four-tournament sweep of 1938, the Little, black-haired Rosewall cut down his heavily favored boyhood chum and Davis Cup teammate with almost faultless accuracy for the men's title, 4-6, 6-2, 6-3, 6-3. Hoad, a handsome blond young- ster of 21 with a strange temperament and shots that go like cannon balls, had won the Austrail- ian, Wimbledon and French championships. He beat Rosewall in the finals of the first two of these, and needed only the U.S. title as a ticket to a $100,000 professional contract. But h i s crunching power was the toy of Rosewall's rare all-around court year in four meetings for the wizardry. Earlier, Miss Fry, an intense, 29-year-old Ohioan making her 16th bid in the tournament, added the U.S. women's title to her Wimbledon triumph by vanquishing jittery, off-form Althea Gibson of New York, 6-3, 64. Furgol Wins Open At Akron Akron, Ohio (AP)--Ed Furgol of St. Louis ran his golf winnings in four weeks on the tournament trail to $11,200 yesterday, coming from behind in the final round to win the Rubber City Open at Firestone Country Club. Furgal fired a six under par 66 yesterday for a 72 holes total of 271,17 strokes under par, and top prize of $3,000. Since he resigned a club position in St. Louis a month ago, Furgol has won the Milwaukee Open, and was defeated in a playoff in Detroit's Motor City Open. His total winnings in the three tournaments place him sixth among the money leaders. Trailing Arnold Palmer of Latrobe, Pi., by two strokes since the first round, Furgol passed him on the first nine yesterday. The highlight of his performance was an Eagle three on the 460- ya'rd sixth hole. Palmer could only keep pace , with Furgol's 34 on the final nine, and finished with 272, good for the $2,000 second prize. In third place was Ed (Porky) Oliver, veteran from Canton, Mass. Oliver fired a seven under par 65 yesterday for 274/ Jimmy Demaret, frpni Kiamesha Lake, N. Y., finished fourth .,. with 276. Demare't had a 67 in the final round.* : Tied for fifth'' at 277 were Paul , McGuire of Shaker Heights, Ohio; Bud Holscher of Apple Valley, Calif:,-ahd Don Fairfield of Casey, 111. The low amateur was Bab McCall of Cleveland with 294. He had a one under 71-yesterday. Tommy Bolt, who won this tournament in 1954, with a 23-un'; der par 265, finished with 281 _' this year to tie for eighth. Henry -. Ransam, who won in 1955, did not -' defend. It was the third triumph of the sure O f Miss Fry's backboard con sistency and in the teeth of a biting, cross-court wind which played havoc with shots. Miss Fry, who now lives in St. Petersburgh, Fla., began playing tennis at the age of nine and played in the first of her 16 Na- 14, back in the days Jacobs a n d A l i c e she gained the final steady Miss Fry over the lanky New York girl, who hoped to become the first Negro to win a major U.S. net title. · Miss Gibson's usually strong game, built around a stinging service and a 'sharp net attack, folded completely under the pres- tionals at of Helen Marble.

In 1954, suffering an .injured elbow and disillusioned by repeated failure to win a major tournament, Shirley decided to quit tennis and try other pursuits, particularly that of newspaper reporting. , "I figured I was through." I was getting a terrible defeatist complex," she said. "Then they ranked me No. 2 so I decided to come back after 10 months and prove I could win something." Today Miss Fry was queen of all she surveyed in women's ten nis, winner of Wimbledon, the U.S. and National Clay Cour titles in a slam comparable to that which escaped the mighty Hoad. Rosewall's victory over his fellow townsman from Sydney was so swift and so complete that the shivering-spectators found it hard to believe 'their eyes. Hoad unleashed some of his finest tennis against Rosewall but found it not enough against the steady stream of reruns off the rapier-like racket of his pint- Saxton, Basilio Meet Wednesday In Welter weight Title Scrap By THE ASSOIATED PRESS Welterweight Champion Johnny Saxton gets his chance to prove his right to hold the 147- pound crown--and a handsome purse, too--on Wednesday night when he meets Carmen Basilio, tht man he dethroned, in a 15-round title,bout at Syracuse. The slick, 26-year-old New Yorker won the crown for the second time in Chicago Mar. 14 on a unanimous but highly controversial 15-round decision over the ring-scared, 29-year-old Basilio. To show his confidence, Saxton agreed to give the Chitenango clouter the return fight on Basilio's home grounds. The scrap will be staged in War Memorial Auditorium and will be broadcast and telecast by (ABC at 10 p.m.). Promoter Norm Rotherchild, and the co-promoting International Boxing Club are hoping for .1 9,000, $150,000 sellout. The television and radio receipts add another $75,000 to the pot the fighters will share in, Saxton collecting 40 per cent and Basilio 20 per cent. If the arena sells out Saxton will receive about $75,000 and Basilio $37.500. The last time Saxton defended, the welter crown he lost it on a 14th round technical knockout to Boston's Tony Demarco. Johnny had won it from Cuba's Kid Gavilan on another hotly disputed decision.

(AP)--Confi- ience was bubbling all over the ush Knollwood course yesterday as 200 golfers fired their final Dractice shots before the start of the 56th Rational Amateur Golf Tournament today. It's virtually impossible to pick a favorite and the keynote of the whole tournament appears to be back not only that anybody can win, shot. but that a whole lot of players think they can. The lengthy Knollwood course, stretched out to 6,790 yards with a par of 35-36--71, is the main reason. It's .the second-longest course ever used for the Amateur, but it is in beautiful condition and its greens are so true that no one has been having any kind of putting troubles. Scores as low as 65--an unofficial course record, have been- recorded in practice and most of the players have been-shooting par or under. Ken Venturi, the California kid who almost set the Masters Tournament topsy-turvy 1 a -1 spring, and his associate in a San Francisco automobile business, D e f e n d i n g Champion Harvie Ward, are the names most frequently mentioned by those who try to pick the winners. They have been playing well and give the impression it will take an awful lot o f ' good golf to beat them. But the field also includes almost the full membership of the 1955 Walker Cup team, a quartet of ex-champions, aging but still dangerous, a couple of former sized Davis Cup mate and doubles partner. Hoad showed a pique at the crowd, the wind a-nd low-flying planes swarming like an 'armada overhead en route to nearby La- Guardia and Idlewild Airports. Rosewall's victory was the result of his ability -to meet Head's powerful service, one of the best in the game, and send it spinning back over the net for an offensive ped Demarco in the 12th round of the return. Basilio was a 2-1 favorite the night he was edged by Saxton and he's the 8-5 choice to regain the title and become the ninth welterweight to hold that division's crown twice. Saxton has kspt busy since winning the championship the second time. He has won three fights, two of them last month, and has a winning streak of eight. Basilio hasn't fought since the Chicago defeat but he has whipped himself into top shape. Scoring will be by the rounds system. A supplementary point system also will be used to help break a possible draw ver- ict. The winner of each round 'ill get from 1 to 4 points, the oser none. There are several other good ights on the national program in- Burt Miller over Cliff Round 1 up (21st hole). First round scores in the second flight were: Duly Chaltain over Ralph Semerad 3 and 2, Bill Daley over Don Farreli 4 and 3, Ed McClare over Floyd McDonald 1 up, John Sheary over Charles Passonno by default, George Young over Scott Jackson, by default, William Killough over Harry Johnson by default. Third flight outcomes were: final game of the season to Johns-lRalph Passonno over Bob Walsh Bow In Finale, 64 The Albany Senators lost their Hoad was not in the match after the first set. Rosewall owner of the best backhand in :he game, ripped the lines with lis passing shots, sent trickly iobs into the swirling winds anc caught Hoad flat-footed with stop volleys and drop shots. Frequently Hoad would stop and .shake his head in disbelief at some of Rosewall's returns. "Rosewall broke Hoad in the sixth and eighth games of the second set and three times in the third set, once at love in the eighth game. In the fourth set only two games went to deuce, and Rosewall won two of the games without loss of a point, so perfect was his marksmanship. Backcourt steadiness was Miss Fry's forte against Miss Gibson, who sought to take the offensive by charging the net but who found herself passed cleanly or sent back after high, well-placed lobs. luding a battle of lightweight ontenders at Boston Garden tomorrow night.

Catcher Nick Testa got the first man out when he picked off Clint Clinton at second. Wilber walked Stan Willis, a pinchhit- ter, and then got Dick McCarthy and Jerry Green Jo ground out.
