One shot back at 134 were Toronto's gangling Al Balding, the surprise first-round leader with a brilliant 64 who fell off to a TO 1 Thursday, and Tommy Jacobs, from Bermuda Dunes, Call!., who tacked a brilliant 65 on to his opening 69. But it was Wall who was the player to fear in this 51st open at the 35-37 par-72 St. George's Club layout A total of 103 players — 99 pros and six amateurs—survived the second-round cut.

Ernie Banks Might Miss GameTonight LOS ANGELES (AP) — Ernie Banks, who has played in 572 consecutive games for the Chicago Cubs, may have to sit one out tonight. But don't count on it. Banks was sent to the dressing room by Manager Lou Boudreau Thursday night after he was struck on the left arm by one of Don Drysdale's pitches in the fifth inning of a series opener between the Cubs and Dodgers. Banks suffered a severe bruise and there bleeding. "I took him out of there quick so they could start putting ice on it," Boudreau said. "I think he'll be able to play Friday night." If Banks can't start tonight's game, Boudreau will make every effort to get him in as a pinch hitter so he can keep his consecutive game streak going. Banks, who has driven in 74 runs for the Cubs, was hit by a fast ball. Drysdale has been accused on other occasions of throwing at hitters, but neither Banks nor Bourdreau thought the big righthander was aiming at Ernie. "It was a fast ball that broke in at him," Boudreau said. "Of course, Drysdale was pitching him inside anyway." Drysdale spotted a reporter walking out of the Chicago dressing room after the game and asked him how Banks was. Drysdale appeared relieved when told Banks' injury apparently was not serious. run homer to fuse a five-run rally in the third inning. Al Smith also homered, a solo shot in the fifth that gave the Sox an 8-1 lead. Jim Piersall homered for the Indians in the eighth. Pierce, raising his record to 7-3, struck out three batters and walked two in going the distance for his fourth triumph over the Tribe. The Chicago Cubs, smashed 7-1 reports of muddy water? It's a natural reaction, especially during spring and fall when rains whisk silt down the rivers and Into lakes. For many of us, fishing comes to a standstill. But muddy water should be no real deterrent, says veteran angers. It simply calls for a change n tactics, switching to a style of fishing that is particularly suited to cloudy water conditions. Remember, fish use senses other than sight when feeding. So like fishing at night, work on the dea that you should offer a bass something he can hear, smell and taste when you fish the murky waters. Noticeable Plop Natural baits such as minnows, crawfish or a gob of worms will attract feeding fish, regardless of conditions. To make it even more noticeable, attach a cork carved into a concave shape about two feet up from the hook. When this cork and bait are cast, a loud "plop" reverberates through the water. This rig can be either cast or jigged up and down briskly with a long cane pole. And with surprising results. To locate fish, try to cover as much water as possible by crusing slowly, but steadily, along the shoreline. Carefully work around stumps and rocks where fish are almost certain to be, and look for spots where the muddy water is just starting to clear. Give this a try; it's a method that might become your favorite. Exciting Sport Whatever the reason, folks are getting just too finicky over their fishing these days. And as a result, say veteran anglers, there is a lot of exciting sport and plenty of good eating being passed up. How often have you heard a and Bugle Corps Assn. Harry G.

Baseball with few exceptions, their pres ence on a dinner plate is beyond the breaking point of the staunchest constitution. Whale of A Struggle However, the same species that provide such unsatisfactory fare, react in much the same manner as a highly touted battler. They'll fight with the best of 'em.

A four or five-pound carp will put up a whale of a struggle I on the end of a light line, and jwill probably make the difference between a blank, dull fishing trip and one on which the By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS American Assn.

June was a month of weather history, principally because it departed with a storm that in most respects resembled a hurricane that caused an estimated $4 million damage in a 10-mile radius of Alton. The big storm has eclipsed the recollection of two other bati storms last month. The first electrical squall hit at 6 p.m Wednesday, June 22, causing damage in the Wood River area and Upper Alton. In Jerseyville a golfer was killed when struck by lightning. The second storm started late Tuesday, June 28 and brought more than two inches of precipitation.
