Don't Forget Rosewall Is Still Pancho's Foe By GRADY ELMORE "Richard (Pancho) Gonzales the professional tennis champ will play Ken Rosewall— not Jack Kramer— at the Coliseum here Tuesday night when the pro troupe stops over The way Gonzales has been opposing Kramer the promoter in the newspapers you tend to forget about the little Rosewall But the running feud between Gonzales and Kramer besides stirring up interest in the match series and keeping pro tennis on the sports pages appears to be helping the challenge of the former Australian amateur ace contrary to Rosewall's comment this past week Rosewall said he suffers when Gonzales is angered either by Kramer's remarks bad calls by match officials or a spectator's actions He had however won nine of the last 14 matches prior to last night s appearance in Charlotte making the series stand 38-20 Gonzales favor Either it doesn't Inspire his playing when Gonzales is mad or he isn't as angry as he pro fesses The latter has been inti mated by some New York sports writers The feud began after the start of HERCULES 0 o O E P P N O A G W R 1 E T N R S E S U N I T S Gasoline and Diesel 5-500 HP Dial TE 3-1064 HIGHWAY & INDUSTRIAL

Kramer the world's top player before Gonzales rise quickly stated the pro king had a strict committment to make the complete tour Then Gonzales repeated his threat to qvit this time citing as his reason ti at he would not have "long enough" respite before the departure overseas Latest exchange came last week when Gonzales accused Kramer of being "greedy" and threatened to branch out on his own n the promoting end of the game In turn Kramer said Gonzales an "idiot" was making plenty of money Fussing as a feature of the tennis tour cropped up last year too when Gonzales and his eventual victim Tony Trabert swapped a few insults Gonzales won the series 74-27 Gonzales has grounds for grudges against Kramer who whipped him when he first left the amateur ranks in 1949 98-27 putting Pancho out of circulation and big money until he staged a comeback in 1954 That year no outstanding amateur came along so a round-robin tournament re- placed the usual tour and Gonzales defeated Francisco (Pancho) Segura and Frank Sedgman to claim the pro title ' Kramer had retired to strictly promoting then after winning four straight world pro tours' So perhaps Gonzales is atempting to lure Kramer back onto the court with the bickering If Australia's Lew Hoad doesn't turn professional for next year's tour Kramer may take the bait But" Hoad citing the threat to future pro tours by the proposed open tournaments— in which both amateurs and pros could compete has said he plans to take Kramer's best offer if he has a big amateur year Rosewall whose size and comparatively weak service

slated too ! j Debate on the open tournament question recently was called for by the president of the U S Lawn Tennis Association Renville Mc- Mann He claimed an open mind (no pun intended) on the subject stating two questions that would motivate his final opinion: (1) Would it strengthen tennis gener ally? (2) How would it affect the Davis Cup? "If they can show me that open tennis will stimulate the sport and encourage more youngsters to play it" McMann said "and if they can convince me that the Davis Cup in no way will be jeop ardized then I'd have to be for it" He pointed out that an open tournament "cannot possibly be started before 1959 or 1960 A special committee now studying the proposal is to report to the USLTA executive committee in September The executive com mittee must bring the matter be fore the general convention next January The next step wpuld be to present it to the international federation and the earliest action there would be '59 or '60 he said he said "I don't believe it would help amateurs— getting beat con sistently by the pros" The best amateurs dont compare with the best pros he contends "Tennis isn't like golf" he pointed out "The difference between the top players and the good play-rs in tennis is too great I could never beat someone like Gonzales for instance" In golf you might shoot a lower score than BenHogan say But Gonzales could never be beaten by an unknown amateur Cobb said The distinction may be evi dent from a comparison of the pros and the amateurs this week to a 46 on the second nine after firing a respectable 38 on the front side v "It is no coincidence that these four players were roommates in Louisville" Bob Toski tournament committee chairman said It is my guess that one man brainwashed the other three" PGA Supervisor Harvey Rayn- or said stiff penalties will con tinue to be the order until all play ers "learn to act like gentlemen" ' The regrettable thing" he ad ded is that the actions of a few in a case like this can give the entire profession a black eye The tournament players almost to a man behave well They resent such behavior They know we owe much to the sponsors Toski suggested: "This is a 2Vt million dollar a year business Where else can you go from a $l000-a-year man to a $30000-a-year man in two weeks? "Conduct like this is enough to cause tournament sponsors to lose heart I'm a player and I know the fellows like to play for $30000 purses like the Louisville tourna ment Bayer Vossler January and Higgins left last night for Fort Worth scene of next week's Colonial Open shortly after their high scores eliminated them from tomorrow's final 18 holes of the Derby meet Their suspensions were the first since the PGA announced it would invoke penalties for unsportsmanlike conduct Previous punishment has been fines for club throwing and such "After all" Raynor said "they can consider themselves fortunate that they got nothing worse The suspensions could have been longer or they could have been ban ished from tournament play" cognition project has appeared before the conference for several years in various forms Two other proposals are new far consideration however Only up-perclassmen are now eligible for varsity athletics in the conference but it is being proposed that three-year varsity participaion be limited to baseball basketball and football thereby allowing freshmen to participate in other varsity sports Recruiting comes in for consid erable attention including the adoption of several NCAA regula tions which were apprced at the national meeting last January Among them is the banning of contracts or interviews with play ers in high school all-star games either en route to the game and back home or during the time the athletes are at the site of the game The committee on constitution and by-laws of which Dr O K Cornwell of North Carolina is chairman will report To be placed on the floor are proposed changes in the method of public announcement of reprimands or penalties imposed by the commissioner and in the term of ineligibility for a student or prospective student who violates ACC regulations while the official meeting does not open until 10 am Friday May 3 with ' Dean Geery Eppley of Maryland present as conference president there is a full scale of group meetings which always ac company the spring session These actually begin in Chape Hill Wednesday with the athletic directors meeting to discuss schedule matters at 10 am Of additional interest will be the visit of two members of the Orange Bowl committee Commissioner Weaver said The Atlantic Coast Conference has a contract v with the Orange Bowl and the Big Seven Conference to participate in the annual New Year's day football spectacle in Miami S& "r Call ut for any- j ' j&k r?m ( f 7 Call ut for any-thing from rood-making to xeevctrng We have "what H take" in equipment and experienced man power to do any job of earth moving right at the right price u u itidipm iiiu 3016 Hillsboro St— Phone TE 3-1831 BUILDING SUPPLY Inc 414 Dupont Circle Phone TE 3-7541 McfiMiISTli Carolina's coach Vladimir Cer nik former Czechoslovakian star in international amateur com petition favors the open idea He also considers the change inevitable "It is only a matter of time— it has to come" he said "I'm in favor— it (the pay) should be all across the table not under (as amateurs sometimes receive) "Amateurs are devoting the best years of their life to tennis" he said "They have to live" The top amateurs competing in international tourneys often pad their expenses Cernik said For instance a New York resident invited to play in a French tournament could ask the French to pay traveling expenses from this country although he might be in England for another meet just prior to the one in France Duke coach Whif Cobb former Davidson net star takes another viewpoint "I can't see that it (open tourneys would accomplish anything" ATTENTION DEALERS CONTRACTORS!

No at least not by the use of words states the Gaines Dog Research Center Researchers at the Center add that one of the delightful characteristics of the dog is his ability to be eloquent and responsive without being a chatterbox Although some dogs have been taught by signal r or incentive to bark in a certain way 1 that may sound like actual words to a doting owner dogs have no way of using words to express their own feelings j A dog's vocal expression lies ! in his bark By its tone and emphasis he expresses joy anticipation or the presence of danger He can express loneliness in his howl growl In warning or indicate the ardor of the chase And to the hound ' man there is no man-made music as the voices of hounds rolling over the hills Dogs talk principally by their expression adds the Center There is the happy sparkle in a dog's face when he welcomes his owner and the crestfallen expression of sorrow when he is left behind The grieving dog shows his feelings plainly by his expression and actions However warns the Center don't make the mistake of thinking that your dog "knows he is guilty" when he is scolded for something he's done long past If you look at your dog in an angry way and say ny-thing— even sweet nothings— in a terrifying tone of voice he will look guilty not because he knows why but because of youv ' tone of voice at Notable inc i HASPEL rA ' : - (75 Owen 25 Cotton) ' U No other suit h proved the advantage! of I i 1 wuh and wear lummer clothing to to many fj iVQ (i ' fashion-minded men at has Sir Perior V 1 For Sir Perior it a truly distinctive looking ?
