Ladies PGA Meet Gets Under Way LAS VEGAS, Nev. (UPI) Professional female divot-diggers take their first shots today in the start of the $15,000 72-hole Ladies National PGA golf championship and Mickey Wright - as usual - is favored in the field of 49. If Mickey's right — and she appears to be — she should be favored to win back the title which Judy Kimball of Sioux City, Iowa, snatched from her last year. Miss Wright had won the three previous years. The gals warmed up Wednesday in a unique pro-amateur event at the Stardust Golf Club where par is 35-36—71. Winner of the handicap event which paired a woman pro with two women amateurs and one man was a team led by Clifford Ann Creed, Alexandria, La., who worn $400. The veteran Louise Suggs nabbed $250 in second-place money and third place went to a team headed by Sandra McClinton, Seguin, Tex., who picked up $150. Miss Wright finished in a tie for fourth place with Ruth Jessen, Bonsall, Calif., and each won $75. Individual scores were not carded officially but Miss Wright was reported to have totaled approximately 76 while Miss Kimball was in the neighborhood of 80. Mickey has won a dozen events this year but she's up against some pretty tough competition such as Kathy Whitworth who has won five tournaments in 1963; and Marilynn Smith who has taken three. Other charmers who seek the title with a vengeance belying their feminity include: Marlene Hagge, Betsy Rawls, Mary Mills and Shirley Englehorn.

Lips Would Do It LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - The letter carried no name, no numbers — just the initials "CC" and a sketch of a pair of lips. It was delivered to Cassius Clay, a contender for the heavyweight boxing crown whose boasting has earned him the nickname "Louisville Lip."

We drove from our 15 to Princeton's 20. On first down we gained three yards. On second down I called for a quick pass to our lonely end, John Engle, but Princeton used double cov- (LONELY »N0 IH5 erage on Engle and I was unable to get the ball away, losing two yards. On third down a screen pass gained only three yards. It was now fourth and six to go and I decided to go for a left hook pass to our weakside end, Ed Burnap. If this play failed we would have no other chance to score. Six yards were too much to gamble on with a run, so we had to pass. Fortunately for us, the Princeton linebacker, who normally would have covered Burnap, followed me instead and the pass was completed for a 10-yard gain and a first down. On the next series a swing pass to halfback Al Aragona tied the score. Pete Gogolak kicked the winning point to make it 35-34.

(AP) Two games matching undefeated and untied teams in the central and southern parts of the state feature the Illinois high school football program this weekend. The southern tilt sends Marion against Johnston City. Both own 4-0 records. It will be a non- league affair for Marion, which leads the South Seven Conference with three victories. Danville and Springfield are opponents in the other clash between clubs with four consecutive triumphs. Danville has won two of its games in Big 12 competition, while Springfield holds one league triumph. The Bloomington Raiders, an­ other strong Big 12 entry with an over-all 4-0 slate, tackle Champaign in a conference assignment. Some other prep powers seeking to extend their perfect records are Peoria Central, Peoria Manual, Evanston, Mount Carmel and Lake Forest. All have won four. Central meets Galesburg, which has dropped three out of four starts, while Manual's rugged outfit tangles with Pekin, whose Chinks have broken even in four contests. The Evanston Wildkits, tied with Waukegan atop the Suburban League, strive for their fourth loop victory in a game with Niles East. Waukegan engages Oak Park, fielding a weak contender this year. Mount Carmel, making a strong bid for the North Egypt crown, faces one of its toughest assignments against Salem, still rates as a threat despite two losses. A lengthy victory string is at stake for Lake Forest in a Northwest Suburban encounter with Round Lake. The Foresters have chalked up 35 conquests in a row. Weekend action in the Upstate Eight may serve to snap a three-way tie for the top spot, shared by Glenbard East, Aurora East and Wheaton. Glen­ bard is at Naperville, De Kalb at Wheaton and Elgin Larkin at Aurora East. In the southwestern circuit, East St. Louis challenges an Edwards team that is making its first determined move in years for the championship. Edwardsville's record in all games is 3-1, while East St. Louis lists three wins and a tie. Southwest Egyptian games give Carbondale a chance to stretch its lead. The Terriers play underdog Sparta. Ottawa's Pirates collide with Kewanee in a game that will have a strong bearing on the southwest division of the North Central Conference race. Aurora us Indicted As Bookies CHICAGO (AP) - The federal grand jury indicted eight Aurora men Wednesday on three counts involving gambling activities. The men were charged with failing to register with the Internal Revenue Service, failing to pay the $50 federal wagering tax, and engaging in bookmaking activities without having obtained the tax stamp. The men were arrested Sept. 26 in a raid by 30 revenue agents on several Aurora taverns as part of a nationwide crackdown. They are: Hugh Bell, 45, of 225 E. Main St.; Carl Pippin, 29, of 432 North Ave.; Elmo Sanders, 53, of 61 S. LaSalle St.; Charles Schoenfielder, 45, of 900 Lakewood Place; Bernard M. Petesch, 47, of 37 W. Walnut St.; Antone T. Richmond, 57, of 31 N. Broadway; Ora R. Johnson, 50, of 629 Edison St., and Alfred Fidler, 59, of 135 S. Rosedale Ave. The men were freed on $1,000 recognizance bond each.

(AP) Billy Tisdale, 176, Bridgeport, won a six-round decision over Cleo Daniels, 175, White Plains, N.Y., at the Bridgeport City Arena Wednesday night. Barons Off to Good Start in AHL Campaign By United Press International The Cleveland Barons, who lost their first 15 road games last season, are off to a much better start this time around. The Barons launched the new American Hockey League campaign at Hershey Wednesday night and came away with a 4-2 victory. Cleveland player-Coach Fred Glover, starting his 16th season in pro hockey, bagged the 429th goal of his career in the second period when the Barons opened a 3-0 lead. The Bears reduced their deficit to 3-2 in the final period before Joe Szura's second goal of the game iced it for the Barons. Vic v Stasiuk made a successful debut as Pittsburgh's new player- coach when he set up a second period goal by Lowell MacDonald in a 4-1 victory over the defending champion Buffalo Bisons. MacDonald wound up with two goals and an assist. The Rochester Americans also won their opener for new Coach Joe Crozier by overpowering the Baltimore Clippers, 9-1. Lou An- Top Manager In NL Sought Pennant More HOUSTON (AP)-Johnny Keane says the only thing that would have made him happier than being named National League Manager of the Year would have been winning the pennant. The spunky little St. Lotus Cardinal skipper was named to the top honor among National League managers Wednesday in The Associated Press poll of sportswriters and sportcasters. "This is great," said the 51- year-old Keane, a baseball veteran who never played in the major leagues. "The honor is even more pleasant to me because there are so many good managers in the National League." Keane polled 53 of 71 votes cast with Walter Alston of the world champion Dodgers getting 15 and Bobby Bragan, of Milwaukee, three. Keane was a shortstop in the minor leagues and worked his way up to manager jobs in the Cardinal system with stops at Albany, Ga., Houston, Rochester, N.Y., Columbus, Ohio and Omaha. Keane's team made a bold late season run for the pennant this year before losing three straight to Los Angeles to finish second. Keane is very optimistic about his Cardinals in the 1964 race. Jose Torres Not Happy With Win TEANECK, N.J. (AP) - From the mood in the dressing rooms, you couldn't tell who won Wednesday night's Jose Torres-Don Full* mer middleweight bout. Torres, declared the winner of the slow-starting 10-round scrap, was disappointed with his per* formance and demanded a return bout. Down the hall, Fullmer and his brother, Gene, the former middleweight king, were happily posing for pictures and amiably greeting well-wishers. "I want to fight him again," Torres said. "I want to beat him the way I should. When I was stopped by Florentino Fernandez last May, for my only defeat, I fought better than I did this time. "I felt real good but my performance was not as good as I felt. Fullmer is awkward and a tough guy to fight. If I fight him the same way I fought Fernandez I'll knock him out." Referee Joey Harrison, the only official under New Jersey rules, scored it 5-2-3. The Associated Press also favored Torres, 6-3-1. Torres consistently beat Fullmer to the punch, particularly over the first seven rounds as he displayed a sharp head and body attack. When Fullmer started to rally in the eighth and ninth rounds, Torres stopped him short with a smashing left that sent him reeling into the ropes. Torres' record is 26-1-1 while Fullmer, 24, of West Jordan, Utah, has a 31-9-1 mark. There were no knockdowns but at the end Fullmer was bleeding from both nostrils and Torres had a slight cut on the bridge of his nose. Torres had a three-pound weight advantage, 161 to 158.
