Sfteacf Buys New Driver For Tourney By HUGH FULLERTON JR. DAYTON, Ohio WV-Sam Snead has a brand new driver for the J»GA championship starting today. The result would make.the other 127 players in the field shudder— if they really believed Sam would use it. For some 20 years Sam has been wedded to a battered, old fashioned driver he obtained from Henry Picard. Joe Wolfe, who does the repair Work, claims the only resemblance to the original club is in Sam's mind. Three Crowns But Snead has won three PGA championships with it. The players feel sure that he'll go right back to it when they start playing for keeps. The new driver Is a modern streamlined model with a stiffer shaft and greater loft. In practice with it, Snead hasn't missed a fairway. Play was scheduled to start today with 64 first round matches to be run off over the 6,773-yard, par 36-35—71 Miami Valley course. Double rounds of 18-hole matches are scheduled Thursday and Friday, then the semi-finals and final will be over the 36-hole route. New High The winner will get $8,000, a new high for this tournament, and the runner-up $5,000. Snead is the only player in the field who has a chance to join Walter Hagen as a four-time PGA winner. His chances* are rated about even with Doug Ford, the 1955 champion, and a bit ahead of defending champion Jackie Burke. STARTS COMEBACK EL PASO, Tex. .IB — Former featherweight champion Willie Pep of Hartford, Conn., started his comeback with an easy decision over Manny (Maestrito) Cas tro Tuesday night. Pep, who says he's going to regain his crown, punched Castro, who hails from Miami, Fla., at will and piled up a sizable ,ad vantage in points. from dab barton's KEYBOARD ni MM MI 11111 mim 111111 nil umi RETAINS LEAD: Arcadia retained the lead in the Carroll County Parochial league on Tuesday with a close 4-3 decision over the Carroll Golds. The winners were paced by Bernie Henkenius who struck but 10 Carroll batters and contributed to the Patterson Shows Poise GREENWOOD LAKE, N.Y. 0PM- Floyd Patterson looked up quickly when a man asked if he thought he needed to knock out Hurricane Jackson July 29 to prove himself to the public. "It's not important now. It's just important that I win and keep on winning," he said slowly with the poise of a man who knows no doubts. The 22-year-old heavyweight champion of the world had just completed a rugged five-round sparring ~ session in which he seemed to be punching harder than ever. Just outside, Cus D'Amato, his manager, was wagging his grey crew cut and telling the world that Floyd was training for a 15- round fight. "If the opportunity comes for a knockout," said Cus, "Floyd will be ready." Earlier, D'Amato had been talking about this rematch with Jackson. ' "We'd rather fight Rocky Marciano (the retired unbeaten champ)," said Cus. "If we knock, out Marciano we get the credit. Jackson is just as tough in my mind and, if we beat him again, we still won't get the credit. We'll have to keep it up over an extended time."

For example, when the Knights were playing in the summer district tournament at Denison on Monday, the Kuemper Midgets, under Coach Steve Garbier, hung a 15-5 defeat on Schleswig. The basic idea back of this long range program is to keep a regular farm system in operation. Players move up out of the Little league ranks into the parochial league circles and graduate from there into the Midget class. By the time the boys reach high school maturity, they have' absorbed a great deal of baseball. This 'long - range schooling is bound to pay off in tournament trophies for the Knights over the next few years.

Commission members Wednesday were inspecting new lake and other properties the commission had acquired in northwest Iowa. Purpose of the tour was to discuss any improvements needed. Frank Robinson Is Beaned Again NEW YORK UV-Frank Robinson, Cincinnati's All-Star leftfield- er who had the dubious honor of being hit by a pitched ball more times than any other National League batter last year, was in the hospital today recovering from being hit for the eighth time this season. "There is no question in my mind but that Robinson is thrown at." said Manager Birdie Tebbetts Tuesday night after his 21-year old slugger was struck above the left ear by a Ruben Gomez fast ball in the eighth inning of the game wilh the New York Giants. The ball hit Robinson above the left ear, split his protective hel met and rolled into the Giant dug out as the league's 1956 Rookie of the year crumbled to the ground. He was carried on a stretcher into the clubhouse where an examine tion showed no sign of fracture Robinson was coherent and con scious as he was taken to a hospital as a precautionary measure. NAMED MAYOR EARLVILLE WV-Earlville»has a new mayor, Elmer Ortberg. He was named by the City Council to succeed Dr. Wayne Thompson, a veterinarian who resigned to move to Minneapolis with his family. Bold Ruler earned $117,825 dur ing Hialeah's 1957 winter meeting. Joey Lopes, a lightweight boxer from Portugal, spent 16 months in Germany with the U. S. Army. Frank Lary of Detroit led American League pitchers in innirigs hurled in 1956 with 294. Merchants to Entertain A u dub on Niehaus to Get Nod for Mound Chore Rollie Niehaus, the hard throwing Carroll righthander who has. been used sparingly this summer, is expected to get the starting hod here Wednesday night against Audubon. A Carroll victory would wipe out the half-game bulge now enjoyed by Coon Rapids but would leave the loop leaders in first place on the basis of percentage points. Idle Coon Rapids has ah 8-1 record for an .889 mark while a Carroll victory Wednesday would leave the Merchants 9-2 for an .818 mark. * Thursday Action Coon Rapids will be in action on Thursday night at Breda and will be back in action again on Friday when the suspended game between Carroll and Coon Rapids is played here in Merchants Park. That game was the protested 3-2 decision picked up by Coon Rapids a week ago and since wiped off the records by Central State League directors as they upheld Carroll's protest of an umpire's decision that allowed Dick Textor to score what amounted to an inside the park home run when a ball got lodged in the outfield fence. When the game resumes on Friday night. Textor will be stationed on second base with a two- base hit at the start of the third inning. The run Coon Rapids counted in the first inning of the suspended game will be posted on the scoreboard. Season tickets and rain checks will not be good for Friday's game. Lineups for the replay of the protested game are to be the same, and that apparently was the reason for Carroll's Don Burgess, manager of the Merchants, making the decision to rest himself for Friday's contest. Former Kuemper Hurler Niehaus, former Kuemper High pitcher, has won one game and lost none during the campaign. His probable pitching opponent will be Carroll Scott, the work horse of the Audubon staff. Manning's Blue Sox, currently tied with Audubon for fourth, will entertain third place Churdan on Wednesday. Breda's Eagles, under the direc tion of Howard "Butch" Heister kamp, are reported endeavoring to beef up the mound staff for a strong finish during the second half of the season. Williams Closing in On Mantles Laurels By ED WILKS The Associated Press You have to figure Thumpin' Ted Williams as the biggest boon to the aged since Bernarr MacFadden celebrated his 84th birthday with a parachute jump. The Boston Red Sox slugger will be 39 next month, an old man in baseball, but he's closing within one point of the Mick in the batting battle. > Williams has hit 26 home runs and is batting .360. Mantle, the 25-year-old New York Yankee center fielder who last year, became the* first triple crown winner since Williams did it in 1947, has hit 24 home runs and is batting .361. Belts 26th The Thumper was at it again Tuesday night, belting his 26th homer in 90-degree heat at Kansas City to trigger a three-run ninth that beat the A's 4-3. Mantle, complaining of feeling tired, was 0-for-3, but walked and scored the winning run in a 10-4, 10-inning victory at Detroit that padded the Yankees' lead to four games over Chicago. The White Sox were beaten 3-1 by Baltimore. Cleveland made it five in a row with a 9-3 job on Washington.

(A - Joey Giardello and Chico Vejar, who meet tonight in a nationally, televised, scheduled 10-round fight, have one thing in common. They both need the win, and need it badly. * Giardello, currently ranked No. 8 among the middleweights, wants a shot at' the championship. A loss tonight could imperil his chances. Vejar could be through in the ring if he loses this one. He has lost two important fights this year. The fight will be televised over ABC at 9 p.m. (EST). Giardello, a 25-year-old product of Brooklyn, is a 4-1 favorite. He says he will use the fast-starting, fast-pufiching technique against Vejar, hoping to finish him in the early rounds. The 25-year-old Vejar acknowledges he no longer is a one-punch fighter. But he says his stamina and endurance are better, indicat- Ing his hopes for a long fight. Cord Pilot Bewildered By JOE REICHLER BROOKLYN IB - What's happened to the St. Louis Cardinals? If anyone knows, kindly explain it to Fred Hutchinson, the team's bewildered manager. Just a week ago the Redbirds were flying high with five straight victories, which included a sweep of four games from Cincinnati, and appeared safely in first place in the National League with a fat three-game lead. Grave Danger Today the Red Birds were barely holding on to second, only half a game ahead of the fourth-place Brooklyn Dodgers and in grave danger of falling into the second division. They have lost five of their last six games. "How can you figure this game?" gloomily asked Hutchinson Tuesday night after the Cards had succumbed to the Dodgers 7-5. "The longer you're in it the more puzzling this game gets. Like Champions "Just a week ago we looked like world beaters. Everything was going great. The boys were hitting and fielding and running the bases like real champions. And the pitchers were keeping pace with the rest of the club. "But something happened to us in the East. We don't look like the same ball club. I don't know whether to blame the All-Star lay off but right after that our hitting bogged down and the pitching turned completely sour. I suppose a manager must expect such things but this has been so sudden and so unexpectedly." New York first baseman Gail Harris hit 24 home runs, drove in 82 runs and batted .270 for Minneapolis in 1956. Tom Langley, North Carolina's No. 1 golfer, is a former Atlantic Coast Conference golf champion. Bill Skowron of the Yankees hit four home runs in his first 'four American League games this sea son. In 16 exhibition games he had hit only three homers. MY LAND! How Those Jorman Shoot Havt , Sold at Kelly's ...

Willie Mays was 4-for-4 in the .Giant attack against loser Hal Jeffcoat and reliever Hersh Freeman. 4 New Sites For Majors By EDMOND LE BRETON WASHINGTON IB - Rep. Price (D-Ill) predicted today that major league baseball will be "played in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Miami and Houston, within 5 to 10 years. Price,'in testimony prepared for the House Antitrust subcommittee resuming sports hearings today, said his "own persohaVlaea" ii that the two major leagues eventually . will expand from 8 to 10 clubs each and the four cities he named will benefit. Former Editor The Illinois congressman, a former sports editor, offered some comfort also to New York, now fearing possible loss of the Dodgers to Los Angeles and the Giants to San Francisco. "It cannot be thought .seriously that the great city of New York would long remain with a single major league baseball team (the Yankees)," he said, "any more than it can be thought that Los Angeles and San Francisco, to say nothing of Minneapolis and other cities, will much longer remain without any major league clubs." The subcommittee is considering legislation to fix the status of professional sports under tha antitrust laws. Serious Mistake , . Price said it would be "a serious mistake ... to adopt any law, or to encourage the federal courts to reach decisions, that wouki treat organized baseball merely as a business." Price told the subcommittee that on the whole there isn't too much wreffig with the game. "It seems obvious that some method should be devised by which cities should not be threatened and harassed by the menaces of club owners that, unless such and such is done, they will move elsewhere," he said.
