Y., led the first round of the $5.000 New Orleans Open golf tournament today, but the role of spectacular fell to Ellsworth Vines, who a few years ago was the •world's top tennis player. Craig had 36-34—70, two under par, and Vines, with a 36-35—71, was tied with four others for second. Vines, who turned professional in tennis but retains amateur standing in golf, came to the 18th hole one under par and put his second shot with a No. 2 iron, 18 feet from the cup. Trying for an eagle-three instead of playing it safe, he sent the ball 18 inches beyond 'the pin—then missed the short putt. EUie's round remained, however, his best effort in an open tourney. "Wood played a spectacular enough game himself. He came through where Vines failed, and a putt which went more than 20 feet gave him an eagle on the 18th. ;As a matter of fact. Craig's long putts worked beautifully all day, while practically every other contestant complained of trouble with the fast and rough greens. He dropped in four from 20 feet or better and another from 15. •' Tied with Vines were Ralph Guldahl of Chicago, 36-35—71; Harold (Jug) McSpaden of Winchester, Mass, 34-37—71; Ben Hogan of White Plains, If. Y., 37-34—71, and Clayton Heafner, Linville, N. C., 36-35— 71. .Guldahl. Hogan and McSpaden finished their rounds in a brisk and chilly north wind. The breeze subsided almost entirely during the afternoon, and the weather was warmer for the late finishers. At 72 were Lloyd Mangrum of Chicago, Jake Fondren of Memphis, Henry Picard of Hershey, Pa., and Harry Cooper of Chicago. In the 73 group were Dick Mete of Oak Park, HI., Sam Byrd of Ardmore, Pa., Johnny Bevolta of Evanston, HI., and Claude Harmon of Orlando, Fla.

Northwestern To Lose Stars WVANSTON, 111., Feb. 14—(INS)— Northwestern will lose some of its outstanding athletes to Uncle Sam next year, it was indicated today on the basis of the number of students at the university who have received their selective service questionnaires but have been deferred from service until June. The football team will be the hardest hit, with at least five players expected to be called up for military, training this summer. One player. Lindsey Moore, sophomore end, already has been notified to report to his national guard unit at Wagoner, Okla. George Benson, fullback, Ike Kepford and Jim Furlong, halfbacks, and Bus Heagy, guard, are other football men who may be soldiering instead of playing football next fall.

By WHITNEY MARTIN • EW YORK, Feb. 14—(AP)—In the 1938 Professional Golfers Association finals Paul Runyan used a spoon to spank Sam Snead, 8 and 7, the worst defeat in the hill-billy's career. Yet today Runyan thinks Snead not only the best golfer in the present field, but the best golfer who ever lived, and that the rating will be verified in years to come. Runyan, a jigger-sized guy with a quick mind and glib tongue, was exhibit A at a luncheon given newspapermen by —the promoters of the national sportsmen's show which opens here tomorrow night. It seems that a golf exhibition for the time will be sandwiched among the feats of log rolling, sling shooting and fly casting, and little Paul is the fellow who will demonstrate the shots. He pulled out all the stops when he extolled Slammin' Sam, and he risked the displeasure of his fellow pros as he discussed the golf field in general. "Snead probably will not equal Jones' record," he said, "because the competition today is keener. However, I think he is without peer. He does everything so easily. His swing takes less work than any other player's. He has a wonderful competitive disposition. His only fault is that when he is running third or fourth in a tournament he's liable to boot shots, like Sarazen. "He doesn't have a weakness, although Byron Nelson is a better shotmaker. That's because Sneac? pounds the ball so far he doesn't get a chance to practice certain shots. Jones had a glaring weak- jness. I think he was the poorest jlong iron player among good play- j crs I ever saw. "Yes, Snead stands alone. Right behind him today I'd put Ben Hogan and Nelson. Then would come Ed Oliver and Clayton Heafner. Next I'd put Craig Wood and Lloyd Mangrum, with Jimmy Demaret, Lawson Little, Ralph Guldahl and Harry Cooper bunched behind them. Johnny Bulla, I think, still Is too raw and un' polished. "As to rating the players on their ability to play the different shots. I'd say Snead was the best driver, with Nelson, Hogan and Cooper right behind. Snead, Little, Horton Smith, Wood and Jimmy Thomson are the best with the brassie. and Cooper and Nelson the top spoon players. "Nelson and Mangrum are the best with the long iron, and Cooper, Nelson, Hogan, Heafner and Picard with the No. 4 and No. 5. Nelson, Guldahl and Snead get best results with Nos. 6, 7 and 8, and Guldahl, Revolta and myself, I think, are the best pitchers. Horton Smith is in a class by himself as a putter. "Funny thing, I'm rated a fine spoon player, but that's not my club. I'm very short with my woods. In fact, if I were six or seven yards longer I'd be the equal of any golfer. Just that little makes a huge difference." Runyan said he believed a golfer passes his peak at 31 or 32 years of age, although he admitted Wood, who is crowding 40, has shown the greatest improvement recently. That, however, was because of a mechanical change in Wood's game, he added. Runyan said Snead's ability to relax, to forget bad shots, is a great advantage. x Runyan, who will rejoin the winter golf troupe late this month at St. Petersburg, thinks Horter McVeigh, youthful Californian, the best prospect he has seen among the younger pros. Mudder Wins Anita Race T OS ANGELES, Feb. 14—(AP)— •*•' Rain drenched Santa Anita Park today and gave promise of a muddy track for the running of the $10,000 Santa Margarita Handicap tomorrow, but mud-loving Certainty came through as the favorite in today's feature race and won the six furlong event by two and a half lengths over Mr. Grundy. Jockey Johnny Adams brought the Nell S. McCarthy contender in for an easy win over Mr. Grundy in time of 1:12 4/5, with Merry Knight running third In the five-horse field. Three horses, including Teddy Kerry, were scratched. Certainty paid $4.80, $2.80 and $2.40; Mr. Grundy $3 and $2.60, and Merry Knight $3.20. Eight mares and fillies were named to race in the Santa Margarita at a mile and one-sixteenth. The foxcatcher Farm's Fairy Chant, winner of the race in 1940, once again was the general favorite to win, but McCarthy's Augury might give the 4-year-old hope of Trainer Dick Handlen a tight battle. Omelet, Flying Wild, Sweet Nancy, Barrancosa, Valdina Gold and eight-year-old Primu- lus, essaying a come-back, complete the overnight entries. The Santa Margarita was open to three-year-olds and up last year, and Fairy Chant won. The age was limited to four-year-olds and up for the 1941 running. Primulus won the race in 1938, but was retired for two years and has had but one race this season. Melton Signed By Philadelphia PHILADELPHIA, Feb. 14—(AP) Frank (Rube) Melton, rookie pitcher whose drafting by the Phillies prompted an investigation by Judge Kenesaw M. Landis, has signed his 1941 contract, Gerald P. Nugent, president, announced today. Melton was drafted from Columbus of the American Association last fall. Landis absolved the Phils of a charge that they drafted Melton with the intention of turning him. over, to Brooklyn, itsPost College To Direct Irish S OUTH BEND, Ind., Feb. 14—(AP)—Frank Leahy, 33-year-old Boston College coach, is going back home to Notre Dame. The Rev. John Cavanaugh, C. S. C., vice-president of Notre Dame, announced tonight that Leahy had accepted the post as athletic director and head football coach, a vacancy created 11 days ago when Elmer Layden resigned to become pro football commissioner. Leahy will sign a long-term contract tomorrow in the office of the Rev. Hugh O'Donnell, C. S. C., school president. The youthful, affable college mentor said in Boston that going back to Notre Dame would be "just like going home to me." Leahy played under the immortal Knute Rockne through 1930, being a lineman on the old master's last Irish machine and the last undefeated eleven at the school. His salary at Notre Dame was not disclosed, but Leahy implied he was making a financial sacrifice in order to take the job. "The financial element does not figure in my decision to return to Notre Dame," he said, adding that he would never have considered leaving Boston College for any job except this one. Leahy, a native of Winner, S. D., carved out a brilliant record in his two years as a head coach. Boston College signed him in 1939 and in two seasons his teams won 19 of 20 games, finishing an undefeated 1940 campaign with a spectacular victory over Tennessee in the Sugar Bowl. ' After graduating from Notre Dame in 1931, Leahy took a job as line coach at Georgetown, later serving in a similar capacity at Michigan State under Jimmy Crowley. He stayed with Crowley when the latter became head coach at Fordham, coaching the line there until Boston College hired him. "I am going to take along all of my assistants—Ed McKeever, backfield coach; John Druze, end coach, and Joe McArdel, line coach," Leahy said as soon as the news of his appointment leaked out prematurely in Boston. "We will start spring practice about March 7. "I deeply regret that I am leaving Boston College, but I consider it my duty to return to Notre Dame. Every Notre Dame man would welcome a chance to go back as head coach, for it is the greatest honor that can come to any of us." His decision to keep his Boston College staff intact means the release at Notre Dame of Layden's aids—Joe Boland, line coach; Chet Grant, backfield coach; Joe Benda, end coach, and William J. Cerney, B squad coach. Leahy was signed to a new five-year contract at Boston College on February S a few hours after Layden quit at Notre Dame. But when approached about succeeding Layden, the Boston coach obtained release from his contract there. He is Notre Dame's fourth football coach in 23 years, and takes over what is recognized as one of the most difficult coaching spots in the football world. The Irish grid- ders play a tough schedule of nine games every year and usually are rated in preseason figures as a contender for the national champion- shi up. No otre Dame's best season under Layden was in 1938 when the team won eight of nine games. In discussing the appointment, Father O'Donnell said: "I feel that Notre Dame has chosen a loyal son, who by past achievement is well qualified to carry on the work of Mr. Layden and his capable staff. Everywhere Frank has been, he has exercised a fine influence on his associates xxx and, like, so many others, has always been a Christian gentleman in my judgment. "Therefore, he possesses the n e c e ssary qualifications to direct our program of intercollegiate athletics and coach our football team in accordance with the traditions of Notre Dame". Asked about Leahy's contract. Father O'Donnell said it had never been the policy of Notre Darne to disclose-the contents of any contract. Bisbee Star May Be Sold •pISBEE, Feb. 14—(AP)—Dick Jerome, handsome Bisbee Bee pitcher whose fistic exploits and potency at bat made sports page banner lines last season in the Southwest, probably will not be with Bisbee this season. Gus Michaels, secretary of the local Arizona-Texas League club, said today the Bees have received several offers for the heavy-hitting player, and he described one of the offers "so attractive I hardly see how we can afford to keep him this season." Final decision on the deal will be made next week. The clubs seeking Jerome were not disclosed but last year El Paso made several trade offers for him. The 200-pound mound artist has been playing winter ball at Oakland, Calif., to keep in condition. Signing of five new players by the Bisbee club also was announced. They are Kenneth Clow, pitcher- Arthur Leininger, outfielder, and Wmfred Alfred Wittcke, catcher, all of .Portland, Ore., who were signed by Art Parker, Bisbee scout- and Stanley Gray, second -baseman Pasadena, Calif., and William Nor£?i n> right-handed pitcher from Glendale, Calif., signed by Manager Carl Dlttmar. Contracts were mailed today to 5*>e Case, Jimmy Devlin, Al Faccio, Clarence Maddern, Orlando Rodriguez, Paul Salisbury, Jerry Varrelman and Warren Williams, all of whom were holdovers from last sea- • son. The Bees also have under contract Faccio's brother, Ernest, Tucson, and Gilbert Fuentes, a catcher, who also resides at Tucson. FORMER GROWER DIES NEWTON, Mass., Feb. 14—(INS) Charles A. (Chuck) Darling, 42 years old, Boston College football star of the post-war period, died today of pneumonia in a NSw Haven, Conn., hospital. Irish Choice Head coach at Boston College for the last two years, Frank Leahy yesterday was named athletic director and head football coach at the University of Notre Dame, succeeding Elmer Layden who resigned to become pro football commissioner. Leahy starred as a tackle at Notre Dame in 1929 and 1930 under the late Knute Rockne. Indoor Ring Program Set •VTEW YORK, Feb. 14—(AP)—By •^ signing a middleweight bout and just about completing arrangements for a lightweight fuss between Lew Jenkins, titleholder, and Philadelphia Bob Montgomery, Promoter Mike Jacobs today completed his indoor fistic program for the Madison Square Garden season. In addition, Jacobs said he also plans to promote fights in Chicago, Detroit, Washington, Los Angeles'and possibly San Francisco in April. The Garden's middleweight fight brings together Steve Belloise, lanky slugger who lost'two close decisions to'Champion Ken Overlin early this winter, and Tami Mauriello, New York youngster. The tussle will be at 10 rounds on March 14. The lightweight affair is slated for March 21, with the question of whether it will be a title bout or an overweight match still unsettled. Montgomery, Philadelphia colored fighter who resembles Henry Armstrong in his boxing style, dropped a narrow 10-round decision to Jenkins in his home town several months ago, after putting the Texan on the floor. Starting with a light-heavyweight elimination February 21 between Jimmy Webb of St. Louis and Tommy Tucker of New York, the Garden's program now stands this way: February 28, Jenkins vs. Lou Ambers, former lightweight champion; March 7, Ernie Vigh, Newburgh, N. Y., and Billy Soose, Farrell, Pa., middleweights; March 14, Belloise vs. Mauriello; March 21, Jenkins-Montgomery; March 26, Tony Galento vs. Buddy Baer; April 4, Lou Nova vs. Max Baer; May 2, Anton Christoforidis of Greece, National Boxing Association light-heavyweight champion, and Gus Lesnevich of Cliffside, N. J. There are no fistic activities between April 4 and May 2 because the Garden houses the circus in that period. YMCA Cage Tourney Set rpHE Young Men's Christian As-*• sociation basketball t o u r n a - ment will swing into action February 28 on the YMCA hardwoods, C. T. Pimm, physical director, said yesterday.
