" The one-time Nebraska state H» tlist from Omaha won a two«hole sudden-death playoff from.forrrter Iowan Jim English Monday, after both had completed the 72 holes in 281. Flubbed Chances Although they were seven under par, both men flubbed chances to win the title without going Into a playoff. Astleford, who started Monday's final 36 holes' 10^strokes behind the leader, Fred Gordon of Belmond, and finished with a pair of 68s, had a birdie putt on the- last hole hang* on the lip. English, a two-time winner here and formerly-of Red, Oak, three putted the 70th hole of the meet and missed a- five-foot putt on the 7lst. Conceded Match He conceded the match, on. the second extra hole when his second shot sailed over the, green.

Coach Curly Lambeau, with a vivid recollection of what happened when the Stars were dumped by Cleveland, 26-0, last year, has four of the nation's best quarterbacks ready for the New York Giants Friday night at Soldier Field. Prepared to lead the All Star attack are Paul Hornung of Notre Dame, John Brodie of Stanford, Len Dawson of Purdue and Jim Harris who directed Oklahoma to the national collegiate title. Last Year's Downfall Last year the Stars started fast with All America Earl Morrall of Michigan State at quarterback. MorraU had the collegians marching towards the Cleveland goal when he was Injured and taken out of the game.' After that, the Stars were unable to put together a serious offensive threat and Cleveland coasted to victory. Two years ago when the Stars defeated Cleveland, 30-27, it was \ largely the leadership of quarterback Ralph Guglielmi of Notre Dame which inspired the triumph. Pros Favored If the Stars are to beat the Giants—current 10-point favorites— either Hornung, Dawson, Brodie or Harris will have to turn in a professional job. • All but Harris were first choice picks in. the National Football League draft. Hornung was Green Bay's bonus choice. Brodie was grabbed by San Francisco. Dawson is headed for Philadelphia and Pittsburgh landed Harris. Finest Passers Dawson and Brodie were generally regarded the finest passers in the collegiate ranks last year and set numerous records with their respective schools. , Hornung and Harris, both ex-! cellent passers although not in the same class with Brodie-or Dawson, are more dangerous since both are capable runners and will not hesitate to run if=• the Giants contain the All Star receivers. On the receiving end the Stars have a host of capable receivers. They're Joe Walton, of Pittsburgh; Lamar Lundy t a 6-6 giant from Purdue'; Tom Maentz and Ron Kramer of Michigan; Mike Sandusky of Maryland; Brad Bomba of Indiana plus an array of speedy backs who can break into the secondary. Fishermen Spin Yarns By DION HENDERSON Associated Press Staff Writer This is the season of fish stories, but riot all of them are limited to fish. For Instance, the Pennsylvanian spinning, for trout in Cowan's Gap Lake. Game protector Ed Campbell reported the angler felt a dandy strike, stopped the running line, and when his catch broke water, was. treated to a fancier display' 'of serial antics than any trout fisherman has a right to expect. And small wonder. He'd hooked a diving grebe instead of a fish and the bird took off with his bait Pesky Beaver The hazards a man has to face when trying to catch a few fish are' too little understood, parti- ularly by wives. Has any wife, for instance, cautioned her spouse lately to beware of the misfortune that befell a Missouri angler, sitting in a boat on a quiet stream, minding his own business? A beaver on a nearby bank cut down a tree, the tree fell on the fisherman and sank his boat. Trolling for Ducks And it was from Tennessee that this chronicle—called a fish story herein mostly because it's the wrong time of year for a duck hunting "s t o r y — was relayed. Seems a duck hunter in his blind on a bright and duckless day suddenly beheld another duck hunter, paddling along in open water with a string' of decoys bobbing along behind the boat. At intervals, the novice in the boat would peer aloft, squawk away on his duck call, then-row some more. To a profane question, the novice explained: "I didn't see any ducks from the blind, so I thought I'd try trolling for 'em," A double eagle was a twenty- dollar gold piece. Boudreau at End of Line KANSAS CITY W-Like Bobby Bragan of the Pittsburgh Pirates, Lou Boudreau may find Chicago is the end of the line in his job as a major league manager. Boudreau will send his floundering Kansas City Athletics against the Chicago White Sox tonight in the opener of a three-game series in the Windy City It was there that the Pirates gave Bragan the heave-ho during a series with the Chicago Cubs last week.' Joe McGuff, baseball writer for the Kansas City Star, wrote from Chicago Monday night that if Boudreau "is dismissed. the ..move probably will come here." * Only a sharp transformation of the Athletics into a fiery, winning ball club against the Sox can relieve the pressure on the person able 40-year-old Boudreau, a<* cording to rumors here. By ED WILK8 The Associated Press With lass than eight weeks remaining, that bristling National League pennant race may have a 81 r a n g e windupi The honored home advantage may-prove to be like Jonah and the : wh»le—it ain't necessafily so. St. Louis, in first place by half a game, has more games remain- ing'On the road (29) than at home (22). But the Cards are tops in the league with a 30-18 toad mark for a .625 percentage. Second-place Milwaukee has 25. left at home, 25 left on the road —but it shouldn't matter either way. The Braves are exactly the same p f home (31-21) as away. Friendly Ebbets Field Brookiyn-s third-place Dodgers are best at home with a 31-20 record and play 26 of their remaining 58 at Ebbets Field. But that home bulge is padded with a 16-4 record against the tailenders and the remaining 26 games in Ebbets are split evenly among contenders and the three-team second division. Cincinnati splits its- remaining 50 at home and away, with a 3022 record at Crosley Field and a 28-24 mark abroad. Philadelphia has 26 remaining at home, 28 away, but the Phillies have been only slightly better in Connie Mack Stadium (28-23) than on the road (29 -"SV Dodgers Add Kill The Dougers added to their "get fat" trick against the Little Three with a 5-2 victory over the New York Giants Monday night in the only NL game scheduled. Cleveland ended the New York Yankees' winning streak at eight games with a 7-2 decision in the only American League 'contest. The Brooks, now"2>4 games out of first, broke a 2-2 tie with a fifth-inning run that scored without a hit, then added two more in the seventh to overcome Willie Mays' one-man show for the Giants. The Dodgers couldn't stop Mays, who had four hits including his 25th homer good for two runs, until they had to. Mays came up with two out and two on in the ninth. Clem Labine relieved Don Drysdale and nailed Willie on an infield grounder. Ray Crone lost it, with the Brooks taking the lead as Junior Gilliam walked stole second and moved around on a long fly and Elmer Valo's infield chopper. Garcia Stops Yanks Mike Garcia, who hadn't beaten the Yankees since Aug. 3, 1955, got the job done for the Indians with a nine-hitter. He walked six, but left 11 runners on base and was backed up by Gene Woodling's homer and a bases-loaded single that drove ih'five riins. Doh Larsen lost it to remain wlnless against Cleveland in his career. Mickey Mantle walked four times and fanned once for the Yankees, who still hold a' six- game edge over Chicago's second place White Sox. The Dodgers, who have six more dates with the Giants in the next 10 days before the next-Western invasion, are only 15-16 against the other contenders at home. The Cards are 5-5 at Ebbets, the Braves "and RecUegs- are both 44. And the Phillies hold a 3-2 edge. Tough Road Ahead While St.-Louis appears to.hold a.... .rpad advantage "flown the stretch, 17 of their remaining ; 29 games away from home are against contenders, and the .Cards have played, only .519 ball in Milwaukee, Brooklyn, Cincinnati and Philadelphia. They're 32-23 at home, bat only 17-15 against the contenders, who play 12 of the re-- maining 22 games at Busch Stadium. . I, The 'Braves carry their road- home consistency even in a breakdown between contenders and also-rans. Milwaukee is 16-11 against the pennant threats and 15-10 against the rest whether at home or away. from, dale bartoh's .. < '< KEYBOARD! 1 I »l t t"M'l'«***4"H"l I HI t\ TOP GAME: One of the best high school games of the summer f was played in Breda on Monday night • when St. Bernard's High School nipped Denison, 2-1, in 12 innings. It was a scoreless tie until the ninth inning. The visitors scored the lead run on a double by Shaw,who stole third, and a squeeze bunt. ... Breda scored the tie run in. the bottom of the inning' when Tom Quinlin was safe on an error, and with two away Merlin Tiefenthaler doubled him home. That was only the second Breda hit . off Steinkamp, the Denison hurler. In the 12th, Tiefenthaler singled and stole second base. Then Allen Koster crossed up the defense by bunting a ball that got past the pitcher's mound and allowed Tiefenthaler to score from second base with the winning run. Denison's totals were 1-5-3; Breda's totals were 2-4-0. Wilberding went the first nine for Breda and struck out 15. Schwabe hurled the last three innings and whiffed six. Breda's Little Leaguers take over the park on Tuesday night with a game against Wall Lake at 8 p.m., Coach Kenneth King said. * * * FISH STORY: Ray Berndt, a Carroll sports enthusiast, is the source of the best fish story to come across this, desk all'.summer. He swears if's. true and that the facts can be verified. While vacationing at the Delaware Sportsmen's Club near Manchester, he asked a fisherman if the'fish were Biting. The fisherman replied that fishing was poor but he had caught a 10-inch bass<r "I'll show him to you," the man said as he hauled a net out of the water. To the utter consternation of everyone involved, they saw a writhing, lunging water snake that had .crawled into the net, eaten the fish and couldn't escape. pavements save big money for Iowa FtJeral funds pay 90% of the cost of the National System of Interstate and Defease Highways, But each state pays the future maintenance costs of these roads.
