lowo Woman, Seattle Girl In Golf Finals SACRAMENTO, Calif.-W - Jo- Anne Gunderson, a relaxed red- haired teenager from Seattle, met Ann Casey Johnstone, a Mason City, Iowa mother today in a youth vs. veteran final for the National Women's Amateur golf title. The long hitting 18-year-old Jo- Anne fought her way into the final for the second year in a row with 8 3 and 1 victory over Anne Richardson of Columbus, Ohio. Mrs. Johnstone, 34, clobbered University of Oregon coed Carole Jo Kabler 7 and 6 with a three under par round at the tree lined 38-36—74 par Del Paso Country Club course. The final shapes up as a rematch of last year's national semifinal when JoAnne beat Mrs. Johnstone 1 up. The Seattle girl lost in the final to Marlene Stewart Streit of Fonthill, Ont. Mrs. Johnstone, a greying former physical instructor at Stephens College in Missouri, fired three under par golf Friday at her usually confident 19-year-old blonde opponent. Carole Jo, the 195S National Junior champion, just couldn't keep Tip as Mrs. Johnstone, a five-time Iowa titleholder, wound up the first nine 4 up. The Richardson-Gunderson contest was far different. Both girls were pasting their drives 230 to 250 yards. But JoAnne was the more accurate iron player. The country referred- to as Albion in poetry is England. MID-WINTER FORM . . .

How can you explain It to a heartbroken child? Most traffic accidents don't hot* to happen. Yet last year, 40,000 died on our highways. This tragic killing can be stopped—if you help. N.Y. Fan Not Gone, More Active By JIMMY BRESLIN NEA Staff Correspondent ' NEW YORK - (NEA) — The guy was stretched out on the grass alongside a brightly • lit fountain. His toes were pointed up and he had a peaceful look on his face. "A uniformed guard was standing a few feet away. A couple of people headed for the glass-encased clubhouse entrance at Roosevelt Raceway stopped to watch. "Dead," one of them muttered. "No." the guard told them, "he ain't dead. He's out here only for the seventh race and he felt tired, so he laid down and staked me to wake him up in time to bet." Where Have They Gone? This was part of a personal investigation designed to find out what has happened to the New York sports fan. When Horace Stoneham said he was moving his Giants to San Francisco, he said openly that New York no longer can support two. much less three major league teams. W h e r e, everybody wondered, have the people gone? The city's population has gone up, if anything. The guy asleep seemed to provide part of the answer. For inside the track — a new, gleaming $20,000,000 menace to New York's bankroll — George Morton Levy, the boss, was saying. "Better facilities help us. We have everything people could want. "I'm sorry to see the Giants go. I used to watch them on television all the time. But that was their trouble. They gave away the product. "Here," he said proudly, "we do not give our product away." Figures then were produced to show his track was clicking along with an average attendance of 31.858 and a mutuel handle of $1,710.294. More Basic Reason When you add this to the huge play given thoroughbred racing in New York, both on and off the track, the notion comes up that while better facilities elsewhere, plus television, may have lured people away from the creaking Polo Grounds and helped keep profits low at dowdy E b b e t s Field, there is a more basic reason for baseball's troubles in New York. Gambling, of course. To be blunt, the only wheel in this city not affected by it is the Yankees. The Yankees are an institution in New York, a sight-seer's special. Nobody really roots for the Yankees. They just go to see them win. Many Stadium customers are from out of town. But with the Giants and Dodgers, it is becoming a fact of life that greater love hath no fan than for a winning parlay. Benny, who is a handbook in the midtown area, discussed this. "It is getting so," he said, "that you got to be a Abba Dabba Bernstein to operate right." Abba Dab­ ba was a legendary bookmaker's assistant in Brooklyn who kept bets in his head as well as tote boards do today. Betting Role "I have," Benny continued, "so much play every day that I can hardly remember it. Everybody bets on something. "They bet baseball plenty. But who's got the time to go watch baseball? People go to work, then to the track where the action comes quicker." Emil Lence, who promoted the red-ink bathed Floyd Patterson- Tommy Jackson championship bout would be inclined to agree. Lence claimed sabotage when prices of five and six to one on Patterson were being quoted before the bout. It was obvious there would be no betting at that price. And if there is no betting on a fight in New York, you get no crowd. Owner Stoneham found out these facts of life the hard way and he decided to move. But not before a little cute checking of San Francisco. "The tracks," he noted, "will be open only for a short time during the baseball season. I'll have no interference from them." In New York, he had plenty of interference. And besides, there Is no place to sleep at the Polo Grounds. Floyd Bitter on White Hope Aspects of Bout SEATTLE W» — Twenty-four hours before his championship bout with Pete Rademacher, heavyweight king Floyd Patterson was "outspokenly bitter about what he termed the 'white hope' aspects of the bout, the Post-In­ telligencer said today. The newspaper in an article signed by sportswriter Emmette Watson said Patterson talked of the bout in an interview at his training camp near Kent the day before his knockout victory Thursday over Rademacher, the Olympic games heavyweight king. The article said also present at the interview were Dan Florio, his trainer; Buster Watson, a friend, three newspapermen who were not identified and Sam Taub, who handled press relations for p atterson. Patterson and most of his camp left here by train Friday for New York and were not available for comment! Rademacher also could not be reached immediately. Watson wrote in the article: , "Speaking of the 22 Georgians who raised $250,000 guarantee to gain Rademacher his shot at thej title, Patterson said: "In New York they couldn't have raised "the mopey in any other place but, Georgia^or (he South. That^mflney had to jbte raised someplace where they don't like colored people." The champion said he believed the 'white hope' angle was the motivating factor behind the whole concept of the fight. He jaid the Georgians who.put up the money, were thinking strictly, in terms of p a white man unseating a colored champion. H . "I definitely feel! 1 that's the whole thing back of this fight,'* Patterson said, choosing his words carefully. "If I had been a white fighter, they would never ' have put up any $250,000." Grayson Says Money is Behind Coast Grid Feud By HARRY GRAYSON NEA Sports Editor SEATTLE - iNEA) - The Pacific Coast currently is a crazy, mixed-up place, athletically speaking. A guy who never had a professional fight exposed his chin to the Ex-Yonks Do Harm; N.Y. Lead Falters By ED WILKS The Associated Press What goes here? The New York Yankees, who seldom let a good man get away, suddenly have lost three of four with ex-mates doing the damage while their American League lead has dipped to 54 games. So what happens to the Yankees? They lose two of three at Kansas City, with ex-Yankee Ralph Terry and Jack Urban the winning pitchers and ex-Yankees Woody Held. Bob Cerv and Billy Martin batting in or scoring the big runs. Then ex-Yank Gene Woodling took a crack at them last night, rapping a two-run homer and two singles in his first four trips before doubling home the winner as Cleveland made off with a 5-4 decision in 10 innings. That whittled another game off the Yankee lead as the Chicago White Sox, with Billy Pierce winning his 17th on a four-hitter, defeated Boston 4-1. Braves Blow Lead In the National League, Milwaukee blew a 2-0 lead in the j ninth and lost 3-2 at Brooklyn. The ! Braves retained their 64-game j lead as Philadelphia rallied for a j 3-2 decision over second-place St. ' Louis with ex-Cardinal Rip Repul- ski driving in all the Phillies runs. The Cards now have a one-point edge over Brooklyn, also 64 back. Cincinnati finally shelved the longest losing streak in the NL this season — 10 — beating Pittsburgh 6-0 on Joe Nuxhall's four- hitter. The New York Giants defeated the Chicago Cubs 3-2 in 16 innings, matching the longest game in the league this year while loser Bob Rush went all the way for the longest stint in the majors. In the other AL games, Connie Johnson beat Kansas City with a three-hitter for a 2-1, 12-inning Baltimore victory; and Detroit pounded Washington 13-4 with Al Kaline driving in five runs. The Yankees scored three in the ninth, starting with Gil McDougald's home run, for a tie that chased Ray Narleski. But Mike Garcia came on and killed the ; rally by striking out Mickey Mani tie, who was 0-for-4 and skiddde | to .373. j Relief ace Bob Grim walked J Bobby Avila and lost it as Wood- j ling tried to duck away from a pitch and wound up with a two- bagger down the left field line. Pierce, the majors' top winner, kept Ted Williams hitless in four trips. Williams now leads the bat battle with .382. heavyweight champion of the world. With the Giants and Dodgers moving to San Francisco and Los Angeles, Pacific Coast League baseball clubs haven't the slightest idea where they are headed, if any where. And now the Pacific Coast Intercollegiate Conference is about to call the whole thing off after 41 years. That will leave nine independent schools- in the Far West. Wage-Hour Dispute As it is outlined to us here, the trouble all started when University of Washington players became involved in a possible wage - hour dispute with Johnny Cherberg. coach, and walked out on him. Cherberg promptly informed the country that in downtown Seattle football players of the larger variety were being paid by alumni. California authorities then looked at Pappy Waldorf, their rotund football man. After staring back for a time. Pappy sighed, dug into ! his desk and produced a sheaf of ! W-2 iorms signed by his chargers, i The result is that three institu- \ tions—UCLA. Southern Cal and j Washington—are still on probation j and most seem to feel the sooner they break up the conference the i better. I Can't Return | In the New Year's Day Rose Bowl, you also have to exclude Oregon State, the defending conference champion, since the Beavers can't return. This leaves the possibility that a fourth or fifth place team could represent the league against the Big Ten champion. The other schools are Stanford, Oregon, Washington State and Idaho. Everybody is awaiting the next conference meeting, supposedly scheduled for December. Many feel a special one will be called earlier. And at it, the schools may agree to disagree permanently. The league has been openly split since the penalties first were levied in the spring of 1956 'and would-be peacemakers can't get more than three of the nine schools to agree on anything. The basic problem, quite naturally, is that of financial aid to athletes. Out here, it seems, there is some question as to how much date money the modern football player requires. California schools also object to the round robin schedule which forces them to play in the north before crowds which sometimes number as few as 8.0O0. Only Washington has the big stadium and drawing potential to satisfy them. Wollett, Statement The attitude of the coast schools — and perhaps that ot nearly everybody in sports—is best summed up in a monumental statement made by Donald Wollett, Washington's faculty represents, tive to the league. "Voluntary .organizations are based on the premise of cooperation and trust. With this in mind, I can think of no organization which so richly deserves an early demise, than the Pacific Coast Conference." i But unless there is a quick job! of patching things up, which ap pears highly improbable, the Pa-i cific Coast Conference schools will be through.

Fighters Longer Than Some of Fans DETROIT Wi-The fighters, the fans, and especially the promoters were willing today to bypass the customary talk about a rematch of Isaac Logart and Walter Syars. The two welterweights lasted out the 10-round distance Friday night, which is more than some of, the 1105 spectators were able to do. Logart, ; the veteran from Camaguey, Cuba, won a unanimous decision. Logart, second-ranked contender, said of Byars:- "He make ma look like a fool sometimes. I try to make a fight but he run, run, run. He no want to fight, He just want to go 10 rounds." There' was never any indication that either fighter would fail to last. There were no knockdowns, in fact, few solid punches. Under the five-point-must scoring system, Judge Bill Appleton scored it 49-36, Judge Jack Aspery 50-38 and Fef- eree Swartz 48-38, all for Logart.

McMahon Takes Blame For 3-2 Loss By JOE REICHLER BROOKLYN iff—"We had the game won and I threw it away." Rookie relief pitcher Don McMahon's terse explanation of Milwaukee's 3-2 defeat by Brooklyn Friday night just about told the story. Summoned from the bullpen to protect a 2-1 lead for Gene Conley in the ninth inning, the young Brooklynite heaved Junior Gilliam's high two-out chopper wildly past first base and Charley Neal raced home with the tying run. A minute later Gino Cimoli singled to center scoring Carl Furillo with the winning run. So instead of 74 games, the Braves still own a 64 game lead over St. Louis, who lost to Philadelphia 3-2. The defeat may have prevented the Braves from obtaining a possible lock on the National League pennant race but it failed to detract from Conley's superb performance. Until, he faltered in the ninth, the skyscraping righthander pitched his best game of the season. Over the first eight innings Conley allowed only four hits and no runs. He walked two and struck out five. A double by Sandy Amoros in the ninth followed by Neal's single produced Brooklyn's first run off him after 17 consecutive runless innings. "We were lucky to win this one," admitted Dodger Manager Walt Alston afterwards. "This was the best game I've seen Conley pitch in years." Conley, still fighting the comeback trail after a torn shoulder muscle made him practically useless most of last season, appeared pleased at the praise. "Yes, I believe I'm finally back in the old groove. I kept getting the ball exactly where 1 wanted . . . with stuff on it, too. 1 know I'll be all right from now on," Conley said. Don Priestly. .198-pound senior frern Bessemer. Ala., will captain the 1957 Georgia Tech football team. He plays center on offense and is a linebacker on defense.
