NEW YORK (UPD-Amazin; Jimmy Brouu regained his Na fional Football League rushing Utle with a vengeance, leading the Cleveland Browns to the team rushing crown and dominating every individual category, official 1963 statistics showed today. Brott-n alone out-gained 11 of the 14 NFL teams on the ground. The 228-pound Cleveland fullback gained a record 1,863 yards — almost 70 per cent of Cleveland's rushing total — to replace 1962 champion Jim Taylor of Green Bay, who finished second after snapping Brown's streak of five straight individual titles. Rushing standings are figured only on net yards gained, but Brown led in every conceivable category. He posted the best average per carry (6.4 yards) to succeed Amos Marsh of Dallas; taUied most touchdowns rushing (12) to oust Taylor, who had 19 in 1962; carried more than any other player (291), 14 short of the record he set in '61; had the longest run —SO yards for a score against Washington, Sept. 15 and had the best one-game performance. Cleveland's 2.639 yards rush ing was nearly 400 more than runncnip and 1962 champion Green Bay, and 500 more than third-place Pittsburgh. Minnesota was fourth and St. Louis fifth.

NC.\ major college compe Ution resumes Friday night on four fronts. Lakers win second game in a row By United Press International With the National Basketball Association season in its final stages, some of the lower- ranked teams are showing their fangs. The Philadelphia 76ers rolled over the St. Louis Hawks Wednesday night 124-111, after building up a 14-point lead in tlie first quarter. The Hawks, one and a half games behind the San Francisco Warriors in the Western Division, managed to fight back and tie the score at haUUme, 56-56, but the 76ers had little trouble building up a lead again. The Los Angeles Lakers, an early season power in the West- em Division but now firmly implanted in third place, won their second game in a row Wednesday night by beating Baltimore 115-109. This does not seem like much of a feat until you realize that it is only the second time since Jan. 24 the Lakers have won two games in a row. Hal Greer scored 42 points to lead Philadelphia over the Hawks in a game in which the Hawks' owner, Ben Kemer, was chased from his front row cat by the referee. Kemer objected to one of the official's calls and arose from his scat standing inches from the playing floor. Referee Earl Strom approached him and the two men stood face to face for about 15 seconds, until Kemer left his seat. Captain Elgin Baylor led the Laker win, scoring 25 points. It was a game of scoring binges, as the lead changed hands sev eral fimes. Early in the second quarter the BuUeU led 39-37, but four minutes later Los Angeles had built up a 53-41 lead. By intermission, BaUimore was again in the lead 58-55. In the third period, the Lak ers came from an 82-77 deficit to a 90-82 lead in three minutes. This gave them the lead for good although the Bullets came close several times. Baltimore's Walt Bellamy was high man in the game with 31 points. Mele thinJcs Twins will go places ORLANDO, Fla. (UPI) - In Manager Sam Mele's book, there are two things the'Minne- sota-Twins did wrong last year that they aren't going to do this commg season. One was to let the opposing clubs hit too many home runs in the Twins' own ball park and the other was the lapse in the Twins' defense. Mele thinks he has solved both situations. For the first, the Twins have raised the screens in left and right field from eight to 12 feet. For the second, Mele is going to do more platooning in the late innings so he'll have his Texas oilman to run third AFL team CHICAGO (UPI) - A Texas oilman, who has held stock in two American Football League teams, said today he expected to run a third one, in CUcago, in the 1965 season. Nash Dowdle, 40, of Midland, Texas, said he was "100 per cent certain" he would obtain a Chicago franchise from t h e league, probably at its June meeting, and had posted S2S,000 earnest money. Dowdle said he had decided on his head coach, a general manager, and a talent scout, but that he did not know where the team would play. He was considering as possible sites the Chicago WTiite Sox' Comiskey Park, Soldier Field, Northwestera's Dyche Stadium, and Notre Dame Stadium at South Bend. Ind., 90 miles away. However, a Big Ten rule which might be repealed now would prevent Northwestern from renting its facilities. Five of the league owners, he said, had assured him of support in his bid for a franchise. Eighty per cent of the league owners, or seven of the current eight members, must approve allocation of a franchise. best defensive club on the field. If they both work out as planned, Mele feels the Twins •finally are going to jcU and win the pennant." "And once we get on top," he predicted, "we'll stay there long time for we are a young team. We have the power, the speed and the pitching. In 1962 c had the defense; in 1963 we didn't." He went into statistics: Have Fielding Lapses In 1962 the Twins finished second in fielding; in 1963 they fmished eighth. In home mns, the Twins hit 112 in their own park-while the opposition hit 99 last season. "We found." Mele revealed, "that the left handed hitters of the other clubs were driving more balls over the right field fence than our left handed hitters were. "So we raised the fence four feet. "Sure, I'U admit we did it because we felt it will help us. The figures bear me out. "We stacked up pretty well when it come to hitting home runs in the other team's park, but we didn't have the advantage we should have had at home. "Now. with the new height of the fences in left and right, I think we should increase our home run output at home and decrease that of the other teams." Injuries Hurt Club As for the fielding, Mele pointed out that third baseman Richie Rollins was handicapped by usjuries, shortstop Zoilo Versalles made almost twice as many errors as the year before and second baseman Bemie Allen, a rookie standout in 1962, didn't get started in 1963 unUl nearly the end of the season. 'As a result our double play production fell off," Mele said. There's no reason they shouldn't all do better this year. There's one more thing Mele would like to correct — the strikeout habits of three of his slugging stars: Harmon Kille brew. Bob Allison and Jimmie Hall. They hit 113 home runs and batted in 267 runs. But they struck out a total of 315 times, "Most of them, it seemed to me, came on called third strikes," Mele said. "They've, got to cut down on them." So long as they keep hitting home runs and batting them home, however, Sfele isn't nearly as concerned as much about their strikeouts as he is about cutting down opposition home runs in the Twins' park and correcting those defensive flaws. If he succeeds in doing both ot those things, the Twins could go all the way. McBride to start for Angels against Red Sox SCOTTSDALE. Ariz. (UPI) Ken McBride was manager Bill Rigney's choice to start against the Boston Red Sox today as the Los Angeles Angels tried to come up with their first win on their Arizona exhibition tour. Following McBride in turns on the mound were Don Lee and Paul Foytack.. The Red Sox were expected to counter with Arnold Earley, Dick Radatz and either Bill Monbouquette or Dave Morehead. The Angels dropped their second straight exhibition tilt 4-3, to the Chicago Cubs at Mesa, Ariz., Wednesday. The Cubs triumphed in the nmth innmg when rookie shortstop Don Eaddy got help from the wind in driving the ball over the right centerfield fence to break a 3-3 Ue. Homers by two other Cub freshmen in the fourth inning accounted for the other Ctiicago runs. First baseman John Boca- bella hit a two-run fourbagger to right field and centerfielder Billy Cowan followed with a solo homer to left. Both came off pitcher Bob Lee. The Angels tied the score in the seventh when two walks by Lindy McDaniel were followed by Frank Kostro's double. Bob Sadowski's sacrifice fly and Joe Koppc's single to bring in two runs. McDaniel was tht winning pitcher and Aubrey Gatewood, who gave up the homer to Baddy in the ninth, was the loser.

St. Petersburg tourney opens ST. PETERSBURG, Fla, (UPI) - The S2S.0OO St. Peters burg Men's Open golf touma ment gets under way today with all but six ot the field of 150 pros and 10 amateurs hop ing a trend now in vogue con tinues. In the nine Professional Golf Association events played to date on the winter tour, no one has been able to win twice. Six prior toumey winners this winter are entered here. Only Gary Player, Paul Harney and Tony Lema did not enter. An early favorite role has been puined on leading money winner Jack Nicklaus, making his first appearance here. He will be hard-pressed by third- place money winner Mason Rudolph, National PGA Open winner Julius Boros, British Open champion Bob Charles, and a host of other top pros. The defending champion is youthful Raymond Floyd who came here last year at the age of 20 and without having won dime on the tour. His 274 over the par 72 Lakewood Country Club course allowed him to pocket the top money. A darkhorse this year is Mill- Barber, the relatively un known pro from Texarkana. Tex., who was in a three-way tie in the Pensacola Open with Player and Arnold Palmer who also by-passed the tourney. Conley, Bond planning '64 comebacks By United Press International Two of the biggest men ia baseball currently are plotting to stage two of the biggest comeback stories of the 1964 season. That would be 6-foot-8 Gene Conley, the Boston Red Sox* elongated right hander, and Walter Bond, the mammoth 6-foot-6 outfielder of the Houston Colts. Conley, who doubles as a pro basketball player with the New York Knickerbockers, spent most of last season on the shelf 'with an overdose of arm trouble probably traceable to a basketball injury. When he did pitch, big Gene was ineffective and finished the season with « ballooning 6.59 eamed run average in nine appearances. But this year the 10-year major league veteran, who was the mainstay of the Red Sox staff in 1962. is determined to start anew. .Conley pitched four innings of scoreless ball as Boston whipped the Cleveland Indians. 124 Wednesday for their first victory of the exhibition season after four consecutive defeats. Conley, the tallest player in baseball, surrendered only one hit — a smgle — as he boosted his scoreless inning streak to seven. Catcher Bob Tillman was the Bosox hitting star with a double and a triple which accounted for four RBI's. Bond, who was sliipped to Jacksonville of the International League three weeks after the 1963 season opened without so much as one at bat, was purchased by Houston from Cleveland on a conditional basis. But so far there have been no grumblings in the Colts' camp. Bond blasted a double and two singles in three times at bat Wednesday to run his hit- tmg streak to six safeties in his last six appearances. Bond had slashed a 420-foot home run on Tuesday in his bid to nail down starting spot in the Houston lineup. Two veteran southpaws. Curt Simmons of St. Louis and Billy Ho eft of Milwaukee, both pitched impressive ball in intra-squad games in their first competitive tests of the spring season. Simmons walked the first man to face him. induced the next batter to hit into a double play, then retired the next seven hitters in order. Hoeft limited the Denver Bears of the Pacific Coast League to three hits in four innings before giving way to rookie Clay Carroll, who pitched five hiUess innings in the 3-0 Milwaukee triumph. Around the camps: Catcher John Orsino of the Baltimore Orioles will be out of action for tliree weeks as the result of a torn muscle capsule of the ring finger of his right hand.. .three rookies — Don Eaddy, John Boccabella and Billy Cowan- hit home runs to lead the Chicago Cubs to a 4-3 victory over the Los Angeles Angels. Jim Campanis, a rookie catcher and the son of the Dodgers' director of scouting Al Campanis, tagged a three- run homer in the ninth inning for the first Los Angeles circuit shot of the spring.. .Manager Charlie Dressen named Frank Lary to start the Detroit Tigers' openmg game of the ex- i b i t i 0 n season Saturday against the Minnesota Twins after the burly righthander, attempting a comeback, hurled minutes of batting practice. Shortstop Ed Brinkman socked a two-nm homer in a Washmgton camp game. ..Ken Harrelson gamed the spotlight the Kansas City camp with perfect 3-for-3 day.. .and rookie outfielder Sam Bowens slammed a homer and double a Baltimore squad game. Santa Anita votes dividend ARCADIA (UPI). -A $7 cash dividend per share on the new $50 par value capital stock was voted Wednesday by the board of directors of the Los Angeles Turf Club to shareholders of record March, 24, 1964. The Turf Club, operating corporation for Santa Anita Racetrack, also declared a special dividend of SO cents and a two per cent stock dividend, subject to permission from the state commissioner of corporations. Also at the meeting, all members of the board of directors were re-elected. Mike Hegan guns for Pepitones job By OSCAR FRALEY UPJ Sport* Writer FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. Like in the case of James' liehael Hegan. If the last name is familiar, here's a reason. His sire. Ileveland Indians. Big Jim wasn't much of a itter. But as a receiver he •as one of the best, turning is arts toward directing the ; hurling genius of such as Bob Feller, Early Wynn, Jim Lemon and Mike Garcia, to name a few. Jim Hegan no longer wears the Indian livery. Instead he's a quiet member of the Yankee baseball entourage. His official listing is that of bullpen coach. Still, and there may or may not be a connection, the Yankee roster lists a pair of He- gans. The oUier is James Michael Hegan, better known as "Mike." He's only 21 and he doesn't appear to carry the 188 pounds which are listed for his seem- jingly chunky six foot, one inch frame. But as a first base hopeful he may juggle thmgs I for the Yankees, if not this year at least in the next one ;or two. The Yankees long have had first base difficulties. Until Joe Pepitone took over full time last year, anyhow, whoever ruled the sack seemed on a sometime basis. Now it would appear that Pepitone has it wrapped up. Yet don't ignore Mike Hegan. He has been in organized ! baseball only two years since the Yankees signed him out of. Holy Cross College where he I was a fine freshman halfback and a very good first baseman. The Yanks have a good out- Ifield. Mickey ManUe, Roger Maris and Tom Tresh. One could go at any time. Mantle I has been plagued over the years by bad knees- and legs. Maris, a one-year wonder, hit j only .256 and .259 the past two 'years and dropped from 61 home runs to 33 and theii down to 23. At $80,000 a year, that isn't much of a payoff. Young Mike Hegan, if he hits, could drive Pepitone into the outfield. Who surrenders his spot there, is questionable. At the prices involved, the first rated victim could be Mails.
