Pro Player Group Gets Recognition By WHITNEY SHOEMAKER WASHINGTON OIV-The National Football League players union, hardly out of infancy, enjoyed unexpected recognition today. But it still faced uncertainties in getting along with pro football management. Officials of nine clubs voiced approval when NFL Commissioner Bert Bell announced Thursday he would recognize and negotiate with the recently created NFL Players Assn. Critical of Action Spokesman for three others didn't condemn Bell's action—but neither did they do handsprings as a result of it. Bell chose a House Antitrust subcommittee hearing as the scene of his announcement. Failure to recognize and bargain collectively with the players organization would be "against the best interest of the National Football League and the public," he said. Lawmakers Nettled The subcommittee is investigating football arid other professional team sports to determine whether they should be 1 immune from federal antitrust laws. Past refusal of NFL club owners to accept- the players' association had nettled several lawmakers, including Subcommittee Chairman Celler (D-NY), Rep. Keating <RNY) and Rep. Rodino (D-NJ). They commended Bell's decision. Crelghton Miller, the ex-Notre Dame backfield star who is now attorney for the association, said he was "most gratified" as long as Bell was empowered to speak for the league No Prior Assent Bell told the subcommittee the NFL constitution gave him full authority to bestow recognition. "He said he had not sought prior assent from the club owners, who had refused recognition at their annual meeting last winter. George Preston Marshall, pres ldent of the Washington Red skins, with concurrence of. President George Haise of the Chicago Bears, argued .Bell had no right ie complete a contract or working agreement with any outside party without approval of 10 of the 12 NFL clubs. Marshall cited the league constitution and bylaws. "Paul Brown, coach and genera! manager of the Cleveland Browns, likewise suggested Bell's authority was a subject for "legal interpre tation."

Hit-Happy Dodgers The Dodgers, matching St. Louis' 21-10 record in the last 31 games, rapped 18 hits off loser Tom Poholsky and three relievers as the Cubs chipped in six errors. Sandy Kbufax won his fifth with a four-hitter and 11 strikeouts. Hodges drove in five runs and locked it up with his big smash off southpaw Dick Littlefield in the fifth after Ernie Banks' three- run homer had whittled the Brook lead. It- was Hodges' second grand- slammer of the year and bettered the mark held by Rogers Hornsby and Ralph Kiner. Gehrig sat the major league mark with 23. Boston's Ted Williams tops active players with 14. Curt Simmons, backed up by homers from Stan Lopata and Rip Repulski, had a four-hitter and a 3-1 lead until the Redlegs cut loose for three runs in the eighth to hand the Phillies' southpaw a seventh defeat, Ed Bailey's -sacrifice fly scored the clincher. Johnny Klippstein won in relief. Sox Lose Ground Roy Sievers hit his fourth home run in four games to trigger a three-run sixth that beat the White Sox, who had .built a 4-0 lead on Larry Doby's first grand-slammar since 1953. It was Sievers' 23th homer of the year' and his nth against the Sox—putting him within reach of the major league record of 14 against one club set by Gehrig against Cleveland In 1936. Sievers has five more games against Chicago. Chuck Stobbs. 5-14, won it with relief help. Bill Fischer lost it. The Tigers scored three in the ninth for a .7*1 lead, but Duke Maas needed relief from Harry Byrd and Frank Lary to win his eighth.

The New York; Rangers, won the Stanley Cup three times — 1928, 1933 and 1940. NEW YORK (*>-Floyd Patterson's tenth round technical knockout of Tommy (Hurricane) Jackson won "fighter of the month" honors for the heavyweight champion and dropped the Hurricane from the top contender's position. Eddie Machen, undefeated Redding, Calif., puncher, was promoted to the No. 1 spot in the latest Ring Magazine ratings released today. In another change, light heavyweight champion Archie "Moore, preparing for a title defense against Tony Anthony, was dropped from the heavyweight list and replaced by Alex Miteff, undefeated Argentine. Miteff was given the 10th position as he made the elite list for the first time. Wholesale Charges There were wholesale changes in the welterweight division where former champion Kid Gavilan of Cuba and veteran Gil Turner of Philadelphia climbed back into the rankings. Gavilan, by upsetting Mexico's Gaspar Ortega, won the 10th place. Turner gained the ninth peg by whipping Del Flanagan of St. Paul. Flanagan was demoted from fifth to eighth. The rankings include: Heavyweights, champion. Floyd Patterson, Brooklyn: 1. Eddie Machen, Redding, Calif.; 2. Tommy (Hurricane) Jackson, New York; 3. Zora- Folley, Phoenix, Ariz.

Favor Boyd Over Vaughn NEW YORK MV-Chicago's Bobby Boyd, making the comeback climb in the busy middleweight division, was favored to stretch his latest victory streak to five tonight at the expense of Californian Willie Vaughn. It's their second meeting within three months. Boyd, a hard-hitting 23-year old, gained a disputed, split decision over rangy Willie in Chicago. The return 10- rounder will be held at St. Nicholas Arena with the usual Friday night broadcast and telecast (NBC, 9 p.m., EST). The verdict over Vaughn was belting Bobby's third on the comeback. He scored his fourth over Rocky Castellani June 26. Boyd, who is in the ranking ten, will have to be in peak form to stay there. Vaughn, burned up at the narrow loss in Boyd's home town, has been going strong since. He outpointed Tiger Al Williams and then stopped 'Chebo Hernandez in seven. Boyd's record is 44-7-2, including 22 kayos. Vaughn, 24, and fighting out of Los Angeles, has a 33-15-4 Hodges More Thrilled On 12th Wallop •CHICAGO KV-You'd think Gil Hodges would have been overjoyed Thursday after hitting his 286th major league home run. a record-breaking grand-slam blast. But Hodges, the big Brooklyn first baseman, didn't appear overly thrilled about his 13th grand slam wallop that set a National League record and helped crush the last-place Chicago Cubs 12-8. Rogers Hornsby and Ralph Kiner held the previous mark of 12 senior circuit homers with the bases loaded. "I guess you'd call it something of a thrill," Hodges said. "But I got a bigger thrill out of the 12th grand slam that tied the mark two weeks ago. That was the homer that tied the Cardinals in the last of the ninth and we eventually won 9-7." •In fact, the Dodger handyman, who has spent 11 seasons with Brooklyn, didn't think his 380-foot smash off reliefer Dick Littlefield was going to land in the seats. "I know that it was a fast ball that zipped down the middle. And I caught it well. But I didn't think it would carry into the bleachers," he commented. I'l 111111111, from dale barton's KEYBOARD!

"We are particularly interested in getting these birds placed where there is sufficient cover and water," Virgil Lhotka, president, said. The conservation officials have asked farmers who wish to stock! pheasants'on their farms to con- 1 tact either Lhotka or Wilbur \ Pluckhahn, secretary, prior to Sunday morning. "The birds can be picked up at the Art Hulsing place at Roselle about 8 a.m. on Sunday by farmers who have cover and water," Lhotka said. Farmers who pick up pheasants for release in their locality are asked to bring their own crates, or containers, to transport t h e birds to the farms. "This Is a project that will benefit every hunter in the county and that's the reason we are asking farmers to volunteer their help by stocking birds on their farms," Lhotka said. * * * TRAIL SALESMAN: Two Carroll schoolmen, B. G. Halverson, county superintendent, and Paul Forney, superintendent of the Carroll schools, found themselves in the position of trailing along in the wake of a jewelry salesman in the Iowa Schoolmasters golf tournament at Des Moines. Ike Smart of Fairfield led the way into the championship round with a.two-under par- 69 on the Grandview course. However, a separate administrator's nine-hole class was scheduled Friday and Lee Messenger of Des Moines paced that field with a 78. All this makes it appear that administrator division isn't as rough as the championship field and there's still hope for the local entrants. ...*•• WOMEN'S TOURNEY: The fifth annual Women's Eclectic golf tournament will be held at the Fort Dodge Country Club on Aug. 14 and 15. Defending champion is Ann Case Johnstone of Mason City. Early entries for the two-day tourney have arrived from Ester- ville, Spirit Lake and Ottumwa.

Kuemper Edges Boone 6-5 in Extra Innings Denny Wessling's llth-inning single drove in the winning run as Kuemper nudged Boone, 6-5, here Thursday night. The Knights wound up the regular season with a 16-4 record. They tied with Exira for the Arcadia Subdues Halbur; Garners Parochial Crown Paul Collison hit a pair of inside the park home runs to pace Arcadia to a 12-5 victory over Halbur in the Carroll County Parochial League play-off here Thursday. The victory gave Arcadia the crown and left defending champion Halbur in second place. Arcadia will be host to the league all- stars in a game on the Arcadia diamond at 2 p.m. Sunday. Collison's first homer came with two runners on base in the third inning and it tied the score. In the fifth inning he hit a solo' homer to give Arcadia a 6-5 lead.

The offers of aid included 54 to football players and there were 38 acceptances, the figures showed. Thursday was the deadline for extending offers under the new aid plan. Iowa also extended six offers in basketball and had five acceptances, three in track with all three accepted, two in wrestling with none accepted/ three in swimming with all three accepted, two in baseball with both accepted and two in gymnastics with one accepted. Iowa officials have opposed the aid plan, partly on grounds that it is unrealistic and hard to administer. The plan requires that aid to athletes be based on need.

About 60 golfers will shoot their opening rounds Friday and the 36-hole qualifying test will run through Sunday, with the 36-hole championship finals will be played Monday. Youth Paces Links Match By HUGH FULLERTON JR. HERSHEY. Pa. WV-One of the most exciting young golfers in several years has turned'up in the National Public Links championship, a tournament which doesn't ordinarily produce great golfers. He is 18-year-old Don Essig of Indianapolis who might come out Saturday night as the youngest Publinx winner in 31 years. Don isn't exactly an unknown in golf. He was winning matches* in the public links and the U. S. Junior Amateur as far back as 1954. And he reached the fourth round of the pay-as-you-go championship two years ago. This summer he has won the Western Junior and Indiana State Junior titles plus some local events. Early Maturity At 18 Essig showed clear signs of golfing maturity when he beat Junie Buxbaum of Memphis, Tenn., the defending champion who is more than twice his age. It was the kind of a close, tense match where a youngster could easily crack up against an opponent who applied unyielding pressure. But at the 19th hole it was Buxbaum who hit the bad shot and Essig won. Demanding Course Bracketed with the young Hoc- sier in today's 36-hole semifinal over the demanding little Hershey Park Course were three older players. One of them. Gene Towry of Dallas,'Tex., has the experience and the gameness to win. He's a lot like Buxbaum in size and steadiness. The others are almost unknowns —Paul Popovic,.a 39-year-old San Francisco insurance man, and Don Sckrabulis, a 26-year-old boilermaker from Kewanee, 111. It was Essig versus Sckrabulis and Towry versus Popovic in today's matches. ANDREWS IN 3RD ROUND SOUTHAMPTON UR - Art Andrews of Iowa City, was entered Friday in the third round of the men's doubles of the Meadow Club Invitational Tennis tournament. He and Maxwell Brown of Louisville, Ky. advanced Thursday by defeating Don and Barry Walraven of Oklahoma City, 8-6, 9-7. Iowa teammate Bob Potthast of Waukesha, Wis. was eliminated in the doubles.
