Y., led the first round of the 55,000 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 «up. Trying for an eagle-three instead of playing it safe, he sent the ball 18 inches beyond the pin—then missed the short putt Ellie'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, N. Y., 37-34—71, and Clayton Heafner, LinviUe, 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 end Harry Cooper of Chicago. - i Dick Heads Still Get Hot On Ice- In the 73 group were Mete of Oak Park, HI., Sam Byrd of Ardmore, Pa., Johnny Revolta of Evanston, HI., and Claude Harmon of Orlando, Fla. Lawson Little, National champion, who won the Open Texas Open championship at San Antonio just before coming here, had a miserable 40-42—82; Sam Snead of Hot Springs, Va., 38-38—76; Byron Nelson, Professional Golfers Association champion, 37-38—75—Johnny Bulla, Chicago, 37-39—76; and Jimmy Demaret, last year's winner, 38-37—75.

John Giangaspro and Harry Meynell went down in a heap at the first turn, obscured from most of the grandstand patrons. Giangaspro's mount, Bay Stout, appeared to' break down and Mobcap, ridden by Meynell, fell over the heap. Young Giangaspro was taken to Jackson Memorial Hospital suffering with a deep cut behind the right >ar and a possible fractured skull. Vfeynell was believed to have a iractured collarbone. He received treatment at the track's first-aid quarters. The accident occurred near the end of a program which starred young Conn McCreary, another apprentice rider. McCreary had one winner and managed to place four times. The record gave him 12 victories for the week, 26 for the Hialeah season. The St. Louis boy, in the fourth race, piloted Seventh Day to vic- :ory, paying $25.20 to his faithful )ackers. Blue Lily, a strong favorite, placed. The leading jockey at the track, Veteran Don Meade, scored a double by winning the first with the maiden General Jean, at $5.50 for $2, and bringing Arestino in for a $3.60 for two win in the third.

Questioning disclosed Dahlgren had been offered the same salary terms as last year. He thinks the club should pitch a few more dollars his way. Dl Maggio, an old hand at the business, deftly sidestepped comment on the subject It has been reported, however, he wants his palms crossed with $40,000. Joe clipped a piece from a local newspaper the other day and it may be in the office of the New York club now. It was an interview with Mickey Cochrane, here en route to Honolulu, in which the former Detroit manager was quoted as saying he thought Di Maggio was worth $45,000 a year. Relays Lure Track Aces pHAMPAIGN, HI., Feb. 14—(AP) ^ Midwest track athletes from 29 college and universities gathered here tonight for the 18th annual Illinois Indoor Relay Carnival which has attracted a field of more than 400 entrants. Preliminary heats and selection of an all-around champion will consume the afternoon, with individua competition set for Saturday night The meet will produce a new all-around king, Walter Arlington of Michigan State, the 1940 winner, having withdrawn a few days ago because of an injury. Chief contenders for this title are Indiana's colored star, Archie Harris, and Purdue's Dave Rankin. Both played end on their varsity football teams last falL Although Arrington Is absent, eight other champions are back to Fellow Pro Rates Snead Top Golf Star By WHITNEY MARTIN N EW YORK, Feb. 14—(AP)—I the 1938 Professional Golfer Association finals Paul Runya used a spoon to spank Sam Sneac 8 and 7. the worst defeat in th hill-billy's career. Yet today Runyan thinks Snea not only the best golfer in the pres ent field, but the best golfer wh ever lived, and that the rating wil 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 whe he extolled Slammin' Sam, and h risked the displeasure of his fellov pros as he discussed the golf fiel in general. "Snead probably will not equa Jones' record," he said, "because th competition today is keener. How ever, I think he is without peer. H does everything so easily. H swing takes less work than an other player's. He has a wonder ful competitive disposition. H only fault is that when he is run ning third or fourth in a tourna ment he's liable to boot shots, lik Sarazen. "He doesn't have a weakness, a though Byron Nelson is a bette shotmaker. That's because Snea pounds the ball so far he doesn Ret a chance to practice certai shots. Jones had a glaring weak jness. I think he was the poores long iron player among good play crs I ever saw. "Yes, Snead stands alone. Right behind him today I'd put Ben Hogan and Xeison. 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 unpolished. "As to rating the players or their ability to play the differen shots. I'd say Snead was the bes driver, with Nelson, Hogan and Cooper right behind. Snead, Little Horton Smith, Wood and Jimnr Thomson are the best with th' brassie, and Cooper and Nelson th top spoon players.. • •> "Nelson and Mangrum are th best with the long iron, and Cooper Nelson, Hogan, Heafner and Picart 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, ar the best pitchers. Horton Smith is in a class by himself as a putter. "Funny thing, I'm rated a fim spoon player, but that's not mj club. I'm very short with m' woods. In fact, If I were six o seven yards longer I'd be the equa -• any golfer. Just that littl of defend their laurels, including Myron Piker, Northwestern, 75- yard dash; Don Olson, Illinois, 75- yard Ohio low hurdles; Les State, 1,000-yard Eisenhart, run; Max Lenover, Loyola (Chicago), 1,500- meter run; Don Canham, Michigan, high jump; Harold Hunt, Nebraska, and Mike Lenta, Ohio State, holders of pole vault title. The list of university entrants Includes Michigan, which- steamrollered Big Ten track opposition in recent years. The performance of the Wolverines tomorrow may give some indication of their strength this season. Michigan has won even straight Indoor and four straight outdoor championships In the conference. o - : Northwestern To Lose Stars RVANSTON, 111., Feb. 14— (INS)— Northwestern will lose some of ts 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. Don McCarnes, regular guard, and Bob Osborne, reserve forward, >robably will be lost to the basket>all team. Both have been notified they will be up for call this summer. Myron Piker, Big Ten print champion, who graduates in une, will be called into service 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 great advantage. 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 amone the younger pros. MudderWins 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 510,000 Santa Margarita Handicap tomorrow, but mud-loving Certainty came through as the favorite in todays feature race and won the six furlong event by two and a half lengths over Mr. Grundy. Jockey Johnny Adams brought the Neil S. McCarthy contender In for an easy win over Mr. Grundy in tune of 1:12 4/5, with Merry Knight running third in the five-horse field. Three horses, Including Teddy Kerry, were scratched. Certainty paid 54.80, 52.80 and 52.40; Mr. Grundy S3 and $2.60, anc Merry Knight 53.20. Eight mares and fillies were named to race in the Santa Mar- ?*ita 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 imited to four-year-olds and up for the 1941 running. Primulus won the race in 1938, but was retired for ;wo years and has had but one race :his season. sp Ju shortly alter receiving his diploma.

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 pr football commissioner. Leahy will sign a long-term con tract tomorrow in the office of th 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 wa not disclosed, but Leahy implied h was making a financial sacrifice ir order to take the job. "The financial element does n. figure in my decision to return 1 Notre Dame," he said, adding tha he would never have considere leaving Boston College for any jo except this one. Leahy, a native of Winner, S. D carved out a brilliant record in h two years as a head coach. Bosto College signed him in 1939 and i two seasons his teams won 19 of " james, finishing an undefeated 194 :ampaign with a spectacular vie :ory 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 o my assistants—Ed McKeever, back field-coach; John Druze, end coach and Joe McArdel, line coach, Leahy said as soon as the news 6 lis appointment leaked out prema turely in Boston. "We will star spring practice about March 7. "I deeply regret that I am leav ng Boston College, but I conside .t my duty to return to Notr Dame. Every Notre Dame ma would welcome a chance to go bac is head coach, for it is the greates lonor that can come to any of us. His decision to keep his Bostoi College staff intact means the re ease at Notre Dame of Layden' aids—Joe Boland, line coach; Che ^rant, 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 foot ball coach in 23 years, and take over what is recognized as one o he most difficult coaching spots in he football world. The Irish grid ders play a tough schedule of nin games every year and usually an rated in preseason figures as a con ender for the national champion hip. Notre Dame's best season undei ..ayden was in 1938 when the team won eight of nine games. In discussing the appointment Tather O'Donnell said: T feel that Notre Dame has chosen a loyal son, who by pas achievement is well qualified to carry on the work of Mr. Layden and his capable staff. Everywhere [tank has been, he has exercised a ine influence on his associates xxx and, like so many others las always been a Christian gen leman 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 ather O'Donnell said it had never een the policy of Notre Dame to isclose the contents of any corf- ract.
