Big Mikes putts finally drop By OSCAR FRALEY UPl Sports Wrifcr NEW YOBK f UPI)-This was oh the practice putting green «t the Masters, down the slope from the old plantatioa manor which now is a dnbhouse, and big Milce Souchak was moaning in his ever cheerfnl manner. "Just can 't get the putts to drop," he said, frowning and then softening liis irrtation with that ever-quick smile. "Mayhe one of these days they'll start dropping again." Big Hike stroked his way over to the other side of the green, sliding the ball to first one hole and then another in deep eoBcentration and one standing nearby shook his head doidy. "He's a footban player," the gay said. "If he could have a coach out there with him he'd do all right. But put him out there by himself and he's lost'" It was, in a way, a very un fair analysis. Big Mike was a football player at Duke and a good one. In his senior year as an end be caught 43 passes for 635 yards and five touchdowns, kicked 76 of 88 extra points and was voted All-Southern Conference. But ever since turning pro in 1951, the bunch of muscles from Berwick, Pa., has proved his ability to have big moments on the fairways, too. From 1955 through 1S6I he won 15 tournaments. He set the PGA scoring record for nine and 72 holes and shares the 18-hoIe mark of 60. He captured the 1955 Texas Open with a dazzlmg 257 totaL ThnS he quite obviously was more than "a football player." The answer, somewhere in big Mike's head, was that in I960 he went on a five-week tour of Australia and putted throughout the trip with the smaU balL "It cost me my putting touch," he remembered. "Before that I used to see a trough from my ball to the hole. After that I could see three or four troughs. Usually I pick the wrong one." The following year, 1961, be did win the Greensboro Open but at year's end had collected only $19,000. In 1962 he nussed the winner's circle and with purses mounting steadily, earned only $2I,29L Last year "Sooch" bad his poorest season since 1954 with earnings of only $13,433. He still was complaining about his putting vben be teed it up in the final romid of the Masters, shot a two under par 70 and finished 11 shots bdiind Arnold Palmer in a tie for ninth which was worth $1,700. His 287 total was one under par for the distance. So it was nice to those who know him to see big Mike catch fire last weekend after three-year drought to win the Houston classic and pick up the $7,500 top money. The hope is that after four years he's putt' ing down one trough again. Dyer, fonner manager of St. Louis team, dies HOUSTON (UPI) - Eddie Dyer, who won fame perhaps too quickly by leading the St. Louis Cardinals to a world championship in his first year as manager, died Monday after a series of strokes. Dyer passed away in Method ist HospitaL He was 63 years old. TbK round-faced fiiendlyi man gava the dty of St Louis iti last pennant in 1346 after the first playoff in National League histoty. The Cardinals beat the old BitMklyn Dodgers, then won four of seven from the Boston Hod Sox in a long-remembered World Series that was won by Enos Slaughter scoring from first base on a single. Dyer had replaced Billy' Southworth that year as manager and in the short space of on« season found himself at the pianade—be could go no higher in the baseball world. It was perhaps because of tins that four years later Dyer resigned to devote fiill time to his expanding Houston business. In the years that followed. Dyer became succsesfiil in oil, real estate and insurance. He became a prominent figure in Houston civic life. Funeral services will be held at 11 a.m., Wednesday at St Anne's Catholic Church in Houston. Dyer is survived by his wife and two children.

Army Secretary Stephen Ailes said in a report Saturday that Clay, who was tested both before and alter he defeated Sonny Liston for the heavyweight title on Feb. 25, passed Army physical tests but failed the mental exams.

Chairman Carl Mnson, D-Ga. accepted the Army's report and said he planned no further in quiry into the matter. But some other lawmakers were not so ready to drop the subject . 'The Army's refusal to ac cept the heavyweight champion of the world has triggered an anti-draft reaction among many people," Rep. Frank Bow, K-Ohio said. "It is difficult to bebeve that Cassius Clay cannot pass the simple mental examinations. It{ is difficult to resist the thought he was rejected becanse the Army did not know what to do with him if they had him," Bow expanded. Bow said the incident underscored the need for an over-all investigatioa of the draft system. He called for such an inquiry by the armed services committee but said be was happy to see that President Johnson had ordered his own study withm the executive-branch. STANDINGS Amtricm Lcagua W. L.

(UPI)A GO-gane major leagoe baseball sdjedide htB been proposed by Tbofflu W. Moore, presideist of' the American Broadcasting Company. Just as qnicUy the idea was rejected by baseball Commis sioner Ford Frick. Speaking before the Hollywood Advertising Club Monday, Moore suggested that a 60- game schedule would put baseball on a "soonder financial basis" since games would be played only on weekends and would be adaptable to network television. Each major league club presently plays a 162-game schedule. 'The teams would be able to reduce their rosters and field only their best players," Moore said. "A team would need onlyj three or four of its best pitchers. I believe this would in-j crease attendance at the games, greatly increase television audiences of baseball, and put the game on a much sounder financial basis." Frick countered in New York that baseball enjoyed a sound financial setup and would not presently consider a shorter schedule. "Over the years," Frick] said, "we have established oorj importance, standing and impact on the American pohlie and we can't ^va it up now." Baboon-kidney transplant redpients die DENVER (UPI)- The world famous University of Colorado Medical Center animal-to-human transplant program was "marking time" today after it announced Monday that the last two of its six baboon-kidney recipients had died. A spokesman made it plain, however, that the team of surgeons had gained much valuable information as a result of the operations, and this data was being extensively studied. The last two patients to die were Mark R. Morgan, 16, son of Jilr. and Mrs. Stanley Mor gan of Minneapolis, and an 18- year-old Chicago youth. Botbj died last Tuesday. The spokesman said the team of surgeons from the medical center and the Denver Veterans Adminisfrafion Hospital bad performed 76 Udney transplants between other than identical twins since the fall of 1861. Ofj that number, 46 have survived, including the first one, Royal| Jones, a Denver boy who received a kidney from his mother in November of 1962. The spokesman said the pro-] gram would mark time for an indefinite period while research and laboratory work continued. Three other animal to human kidney fransplants have been attempted in other hospitals and they too ended in faitores.

Washington Window Pious peCtieol pkrtfomis md ma of brakM promises By Lyle C. Ccagtess sow has arrived; I without embarrassment at the moment of truth in its long winded consideration of the 1964 civil rigbU bin. Politicians do not embarrass easily. The late Prudent Kennedy was not. President Johnson is not and Democratic congressional leaders are not in the least em barrassed by the fact that this civil rights bill sfaooM have been di^sed of by tha 87th Congress in 1961. A civil rights act In 1961 was part of the 1960 bargain the Democrats made with the citizens in exchange for their votes. Negro voters, e^iedally, were invited to support the Democratic presidential ticket] OB the basis ot promises of fast executive and legislative action. Instant civil rights! In general terms, the Democratic platform said the party purpose was "to assure equal ac cess for all Americans to all areas ot community life, in-] chiding -voting booths, school rooms, jobs, boosing and pubhc facilities." Ciiaa Piafferm Wertiing More specifically, the Demo cratic platform said: The new (KennedyJohnson) administration will support federal legislatioa establishing Fair Empbyment Practices Commission (FEPC) to seenre effectively for everyone the right to eqnal opportunity fori employment' "The RomUiean platform was less precise in its promises. But in over-all scope it had the same objective as the Democratic platform. That objective, of course, was to attract Negro votes to Republican candi dates. It shouM be evident by now that political platforms are likely to be made up more of bright promise than of assio'ed performance. Taken together, the Republi can and Democratic platforms of 1960 combined to promise Negro voters a better life in all areas of their relationships with the community. These prom ises variously were precise or deliberately vague or put down in double talk. However that may have been the Democratic promises were sufficientiy aluring to persuade the Negro voters without whosel support John F. Kennedy probably would not have been elect- House passes Indian land distribution bill WASHINGTON (UPI) — The House Monday passed and sent to the Senate a bill to provide for the distribntion of land and assets at 75 Indian rancherias and reservations in CaUfomia. The bin, infroduced by Rep. Harold T. Johnson, D - Calif., would pave the way for termination of the reservations when a majority d the Indians request it The legislation would extend provisions of a 1958 act involv ing 41 rancherias to the 75 additional rancherias. ed JFK 's persoul coraaut-' ment to civil rigUs as a moral and social need is not questioned. But not even Kennedy dared attempt to make good on his platform promises upon taking office in Jannary. J96L He discouraged introdaetion of leg-] islation to make good the cam paign promises. He withheld the helping hand that might] have put a stop to Senate fill-] busters. Politically Expadient Political expedioicy demanded that Kennedy proceed as he did to postpone delivery on bis civil rights promises. AU poU-f ticians having mach in com-j mon, it is likely that a Republican president would have] done 00 better. The question of the major par^ prudential platforms remains, however. How shall the politicians be kept honest to promise no more than they can or intend to deliver? How to compel platform makers to distinguish between pious expressions of what should be and serious promises of what shaU be. The proper answer, of course would be a Imfh-in-politics act We have a truth-in-securities act to penalize financial scul- duggeries. The tmth-in • securi-] ties act forbids take promises, misleading double talk. A tmth-in-politics act woold ]{iave required the. 1960 party platforms to bear a conspicuous statement, like this: "Nothing herein shaH be construed as a promise of performance in the event this party wins."
