Goldstrand Wins Title At Cherokee " CHEROKEE 1* - Young Joel Goldstrand of Worthington, Minn., could look with pride Tuesday on his Sioux Valley Amateur golf title. In becoming the youngest per- i sen to win the championship in j the 23-year history of the tourna- j ment, the 17-year-old Mlnnesotafi | met the best in the field here to \ accomplish it. j Goldstrand wrested the title from two-time champion Don Webb of Newton on the 21st hole Monday after defeating defending champion Irv Sorensen of Sioux City 1 up in 20 in the semifinals, j Webb's Comeback Webb, four down after nine | holes, made a sensational come-: back and nearly beat his younger opponent on the first extra hole. The newton veteran won the 11th, 12th and 13th holes and evened the match on No. 18 by dropping a 50-foot approach shot for a birdie 3. On the 19th hole, Webb's second shot struck the pin and bounced aw8y. If it had gone in. Webb would have had his third Sioux Valley title. Goldstrand tapped in a one-footer on the 21st green after Webb's six-foot putt slipped past the cup. Webb reached the finals by edging Bob Astleford of Omaha 1 up in 20. Ford Back on Hill; Yanks Lead by Pair Kuemper Midgets Win by 29-1 Score The Kuemper Midgets baseball team took a lop-sided four-inning game from Coon Rapids on Monday night by a 29-1 score. Vernon "Lefty" Brincks hurled no-hit ball for the Kuemper team as the fledgling Knights completely subdued the Coon Rapids team.

Ford, AL leader last season in winning percentage (19-6 for .760) and earned run average f2.47> and an 83-29 lifetime pitcher, ended a six-week layoff caused by arm trouble Monday night and picked up a .victory in relief as the Yankees edged Baltimore 3-2 on Mickey Mantle's loth-inning homer. Coupled with Detroit's 5-2 defeat of the second-place Chicago White Sox, the triumph boosted the defending world champions into a two-game lead. In the National League, the trend of everyone winning a few and losing a few continued. Errors Help Cards St. Louis, capitalizing on four Milwaukee errors, defeated the first-place Braves 9-5 in one of three night games after second- place Cincinnati, half a game back had been stopped in the afternoon by the Chicago Cubs' Dick Drott 6-0. Brooklyn, behind Don Drysdale's five-hitter, blanked the New York Giants 3-0, and Philadelphia rallied for five runs in the eighth to end a five-game losing streak 5-4 over Pittsburgh. Kansas City's string of 11 losses ended with a 10-3 win over Cleveland, and Washington edged Boston 5-4 in other AL activity. 22nd for Mantle Mantle's home run, running the Yankee win streak to five, was his 22nd of the season and was hit off George Zuverink after Billy Gardner's two-out single had scored the tying run for the Orioles in the ninth. Ford worked two innings and allowed two hits and one run, giving" way to Bob Grim, who wrapped it up in the last of the 10th. Al Kaline and Charley Maxwell hit homers to help Jim Bunning win his ninth against two losses for Detroit. Jim Wilson lost it. Oust Wynn Early Kansas City scored five times in the first to rout Early Wynn, three on Tim Thompson's homer. Tom Gorman won in relief for the A's, as did Pete Ramos for the Senators against the Red Sox. Mike Fornieles was the Boston loser but his successor, Ike Delock. forced in the winning run Timet Herald, Carroll, Iowa Tuesday, July 2, 1957 with a bases-loaded walk to Bob Usher in the seventh. ' Five runs in the third inning, three of them made unearned by Milwaukee boots, gave the Cardinals control of the NL leaders and cut the grip between St. Louis ; and the top to U4 games. Del i Ennis drove In three runs arid ' Hal Smith two for the Cards, who overcame Milwaukee homers by Hank Aaron (24) and Wes Covington. Herm Wehmeier won his third while Bob Buhl (9-3) was the loser. Drott struck out eight and scattered four Redleg singles for his second shutout—and the Cubs' second—of the season. Joe Nux- Hail was the loser. Junior Gilliam's leadoff homer off Johnny Antonelli gave Brooklyn's Drysdale all the working margin he needed. The Pirate's Ron Kline led 4-0 on a three-hitter until the Phillies | rallied for their big five in the {eighth on four hits, including a l two-run single by Granny Hamner and a two-run double by Rip Re! pulski. Jim Hearn won it and Bob i Smith was the loser. Provizzi Spoils Frenchman's Bid NEW YORK W-Germinal Ballarin, a newly arrived Frenchman, intended to use Monday night's bout with Bob Provizzi merely as a warmup for an important July 19 meeting with Rory Calhoun. Instead, it may have cost him the Calhoun match. "We were all set to sign the papers," said International Boxing Club matchmaker Billy Brown today. "But now we're not so sure. That Provizzi is a spoiler." Provizzi, who fights out of Freehand, Pa., could have spoiled the fight completely had not the Frenchman chased him all around the ring and gained a unanimous —but close— decision. That the fight produced little j action was not Ballarin's fault, i He tried to show he was a punch- i er. | Referee Harry Ebbets gave it • to Ballarin 6-3-1. Judges Leo Birn- i baum and Bill Recht each had it 16-4. The Associated Press card had Ballarin ahead 7-3. Strikeout Binge- As Cub Pitchers Set New Records CHICAGO CT) - Chicago Cfjb pitchers are on a strikeout binge for which Manager Bob Scheffing has no explanation other than "some of these kids have real good stuff." One of the "kids" having real good stuff is Dick Drott, who celebrated his 21st birthday Monday with a 6-0 victory over the Cincinnati "All Stars." Drott fanned eight Redlegs to give Cub pitchers a total of 35 in the last three games. In splitting a doubleheader with Brooklyn Sunday, Cub pitchers fanned 27 Dodgers to set a new major league doubleheader mark. For the season, the Cub staff has a total of 345 strikeouts. Drott, who has a 7-7 record and owns both of Chicago's shutout victories, leads the whiff parade with 86 and is second in the league to Jack Sariford of Philadelphia who has 88. Second to Drott ir strikeouts is Moe Drabowsky, another 21-year- old righthander. Moe has 60 but the phenomenal averages are held by Don Elston and Dick Littlefield, the only southpaw on the staff. Elston has fanned 34 in 37 innings and Littlefield has 28 in 31 innings. Reliefer Turk Lown has 23*in 43 innings and leads the league with a 1.80 earned run average. Braves Record 8th Little League Win The Braves took a commanding hold on first place in the Little League standings in Carroll with a 6-5 triumph over the Cubs here Monday. It was the eighth win in nine games for the league leaders. Dick Kelly paced the attack for the victors with four-fdr-four including a homer, two doubles and a single.

Paige, a former pitcher for the Carroll entry in the Iowa State League, is a student at Buena Vista College in Storm Lake. He and his family were off -season residents of Carroll during his Iowa State League career prior to matriculation at Buena Vista. However, his parents still reside at Dike, la., and according to league rules, on a 5-1 vote, that town is his baseball address.

In fact, many a man whose memory goes back beyond the era of super plastics will tell you that they still do. A handful of the legendary craftsmen are still in business. Oh, the engineers can show you with a slide rule how a modern mass-produced rod of synthetic resins or glassfibre can do anything that the old hand-made bamboos did, for one-fourth or less of the cost. But a slide rule has no tender heart, no appreciation for- the arts. And a custom crafted split bamboo fly rod, Junior, was and is as much a work of art as a piece of fishing tackle. Five Still Alive Of the great names of the tradition-hallowed craft, only five at least are still active, comparatively speaking: The Charles F. Orvis Co. of Manchester, Vt., the H. L. Leonard Co., Andrew Kull of Lake Mills, Wis., E. F. Payne of Highland Mills, N. Y., and the Thomas Rod Co. Altogether, these five make perhaps 4,000 rods a year. Expensive With some 22 million fishermen around, this means that precious few of them stand much chance of ever seeing a real live Leonard or a Kull bamboo in action, to say nothing of owning one. Owning one involves the expenditure of up to about $200. Many of the best bamboos were built to order, to fit the physique, desires and even disposition of its prospective owner..The production of such instruments doesn't lend itself to mass techniques. ' Came from China And anyway, the supply of Tonkin cane, without which many of the* old craftsmen wouldn't toueh plane to wood, has- virtually, disappeared as far as the Western world is concerned. It grew only in a small area near Canton, China. Some of the rodmakers managed to round up a supply but after that's gone? Well, don't be mean to that uncle who lost ail his money in a domino game. He might still leave you a fish pole.

Mitst Think On British Golf Courses By STERLING SLAPPEY ST. ANDREWS, Scotland W It takes more brains to play golf in the British Isles than in the United'States, Joe Carr, of Dublin, a veteran of the game on both sides of the Atlantic, said. Golf over here is more changeable, more varied, while gq ]i in the United States is very much the satne every day on every course," he said. . "You have to know more different shots, understand different conditions and have the ability to change." There was partial agreement from Cary Middlecoff, playing at St. Andrews in his first try at winning the British Open title to go along with the U.S. national titles he won in 1949 and 1956 and the Masters in 1955. Extravagant 75 Middlecoff had just taken an extravagant 75 strokes Monday over the par-71 St. Andrews New Course and much of his trouble came from unadaptabilities. "At home you have a background to line up an approach shot with," Middlecoff said. "Maybe it» 1 is a tree or just a bush. Here— oh no. It is flat. No avenue of trees or landmarks. You look away for a moment and then try to get lined up again. "You have to find out all over just where you are." Bernard Hunt got a 66 and two others 67s on the New Course Monday but Norman Sutton's 68 (>was considered the best since he played the Old Course, considered about four strokes harder. Better Than Thomson Sutton's score was three strokes better than that of Australia's Peter Thomson, seeking his fourth straight title. Four players in the 10-maa American delegation beat Middlecoff. Frank Stranahan, Toledo, Ohio, had a 71 on the New Course. Gene Andrews, former Public Links champion from Pacific Palisades, Calif., put together a 72 on the Old Course. Frank D. Keck, Air Force lieutenant from Champaign, 111., had a 73 and pro Roger Peacock of Silver Spring, Md„ a 74 on the Old Course. Al Jamison, Quantico, Va., pro, * matched Middlecoff's 75 on the New Course. ART ANDREWS ADVANCES CINCINNATI.
