(AP) — You've heard that one about only being as good as you think you are? It appears that Billy Lenoir of Tucson, Ariz., is quite a bit better than he think* he is. Lenoir, recently crowned na- Honal junior champion, had only won one match on a grawi court before he took on seventh seeded Martin Mulligan of Australia Monday In a first-round Eastern Grass Courts Tennis Championship match at Orange Lawn Tennis Pub. But Lenoir pulled the first upset of the tournament by ousting Mulligan, 6-2, 2-€, 64. "When I took the court I was sure I was going to lose," Lenoir said. Lenoir, 17, plays a game tai lored to a clay or hard court surface. As a two-hander, he can't use the volley efficiently and the volley is an integral part of the net game on grass. Monday though, he played his usual baseline game and Mulligan wasn't able to bring him to the net Lenoir is a junior Davis Cup squad member and another one, Ray Senkowski of Hamtramck, Mich., also turned in a surprise of sorts. Senkowski hammered out a 6-1, 3-€, 6-2 victory over Crawford Henry of Atlanta, the Tulane star. 1 Rod Laver, the top-seeded Aus* tralian. had an unexpected work- lout before he got by Jim Shaffer, 6-2, 4-6, 6-2. Ron Holmberg of Brooklyn, No. 2 seed, trimmed John Skogstad, 6-3, 6-4. BUY FIRESTONE GUARANTEED NEW TREADS ...AT TRUCKLOAD PK/CfS 6.70-15 or 7.50-14 TubtloM or Tub«*Typt Same tread DESI6N ...

With the Soviet Union lacking a male star certain to win, Ta- maraandlrina Press loom as successors to 1956 double champion Vladimir Kuts as the toast of the huge hammer and sickle brigade. "I will be disappointed if Tamara does not win medals in both the shot and discus," Soviet head coach G. V. (Harry) Kqrobkov said today. "As for Irina—that girl can do anything. She is marvelous." Tamara twice broke the world record in the women's shot put this year winning the Olympic trials with 59 feet. She hurled the discus 182 feet, 3 inches. The slimmer, younger Irina tied the world 80 meter hurdles /ecord with 10.6 seconds. She also is a good sprinter and broad jumper. Korobkov said he plans to enter her for three events Including the relay. "I am. confident each of the girls will win at least one gold medal and a place in other events," he added. "Between them they may win five." Tamara is 23 and built for durability. Five-feet-seven, she weighs 198 pounds and has arms and legs like young oaks. A long, back- sweep hairdo frames a strong, square face. Irina, 21, is lean and supple with close-cropped curls and flashing blue eyes.

Although the pond is virtually completely covered with duck weed, we watched Jun get numerous strikes with the lure. Jun fished from a boat and sculled outward from shore and cast into the bank. His fast retrieve kept the lure on top of the duck week but bass underneath must have suspected a frog or mouse was above and struck several times. Jun and his father have taken bass from six up to 7% pounds out of the lake. Boating-Fishing Outing The Lewis Wenrels, 2304 Johnson St., entertained guests during the weekend on a boating and fishing outing at their cabin on the Illinois river at Kampsville. The guests included the Wenzel's son and daughter-in-law, Mr. and Mrs. Robert Weazel, the Wenzels' daughter and son-in-law, Mr. and Mrs. John Vmrney and daughter, the Wenzel's brother and wife, the Gene Wenzels, the Nick Polys, the latter two couples of Cleveland, O., and this writer and wife. When it comes to bringing a share, Poly set a precedent by bringing 30 pounds of frozen steaks along on his plane trip here last Friday. He also won the cash award for catching the first, the largest and the most fish during a specified time Saturday. He landed a four-inch catfish for the only one taken by the entire group of men anglers. Lewis Wenzel and this writer also tried fishing Sunday in sev eral areas of the Illinois River including the mouth of Monday Slough and other likely spots. The total score was a six-inch carp taken by this writer. But we were told that if we had been there a month ago, the fishing was much better. The launching area at Kampsville r^eds much improvement This writer's car, boat and trailer became mired when we tried to bring the craft in. Art Baker of Carrollton, who was nearby in his truck, volunteered to give us a pull. There is considerably less boating traffic in that area of the Illinois River but an upstream wine" whipped up waves and made riding over the water sbniliar to riding over a washboard. Numerous Oars There seems to be an increasing number of gars in backwaters, harbors and other areas off the Mississippi and Illinois rivers. And usually where the gars are so numerous, fishing is poor Gars are vicious and will attack and kill other fish on the slightest provocation. There ought to be some solution to the gar problem. A Shreveport. (La.) Skin Diving Club recently enlisted 96 underwater spear fishing enthusiasts at Lake Bistineau. The underwater group killed 253 gars with an aggregate weight of 1,276 pounds.

Pome O* Mitt CUM MMIMMIMM Bill Pierce Back in Form Against Yanks CHICAGO (AP) -r-Billy Pierce, one time Chicago White Sox pitching ace who didn't get a start in last year's World Seines, is back on top again. Pierce, the 33-year-old southpaw stopped the New York Yankees on four hits Monday night in a 9-1 triumph which pulled the White Sox within one-half game of the league-leading Yankees. The victory was the llth, in 18 decisions for Pierce — forgotten man in the 1959 series against Los Angeles after being the White Sox' ace pitcher for a decade. Pierce won 20 games in 1956 and 1957 and 17 in 1958. Slowed by an injured hip, he finished with a 14-15 record last year. Early Wynn and Bob Shaw carried the burden for the Sox in the pennant drive. "He's been our most consistent pitcher so far this year," said Manager Al Lopez. "That hip injury bothered him last year but he's throwing like the Pierce of old this season." Pierce blames his hip injury for his mediocre showing last year. "I'm not worried about it anymore," says the stylish lefthander. Pierce walked only one batter Monday night and struck out four One of the hits off him was an infield job by Mickey Mantle Outside their other three safeties, the Yankees were able to hit only four balls out of the infield. The White Sox collected 13 hits — three each by Minnie Minoso and Jim Landis — and scorec their fourth triumph over Yankee left-hander Whitey Ford without a loss. Ford, who used to be considered a winner against the Sox simply by having his name announced, has only one victory to show in the last two years against Chicago. The Sox have beaten him seven times in that span.

The Los Angeles Coliseum rocks with cheers when big Frank steps out of the dugout and stalks to the plate. "The way Howard is improving he's good for 40 homers a year,' opined the erstwhile home-run king of the Dodgers. "There is no question about how far he can hit the ball. The way he is learn ing to check his swing is surprising. When he first came up, once he had committed himself to swing, he went through with it He has made tremendous stride in a very short time. "When it comes to brute strength Howard has certainly go it. Be careful if he shakes hands with you. He could smash fingers without realizing it. "He is much more powerfu than I am. I've hit the ball jusi as far but I won't hit as many foi that terrific distance. "Howard has possibilities of being another Babe Ruth, but then he's not the only one. Given the right conditions, Dick Stuart and Ernie Banks are potential home- run kings. And I don't believe that Howard's potential is any better than a dozen other guys who didn't beat the record. Jimmy Foxx hit 59. "If Howard becomes as good a hitter as Foxx he has a chance to beat 60. If the ball carries good in Chavez Ravine and Howard makes contact enough, he may do it." Snider also looks forward in a less encouraging way to playing in Chavez Ravine. "If I could only get over that knee I'd still have several good years," he said. In 1953, Duke Snider hit 42 home runs and then in successive years 40, 42, 43 and 40. Only three batters in the National League history, Ralph Kiner, Mel Ott and Stan Musial, have hit more home runs than the Duke. Berwyn Cops Legion Crown SPRINGFIELD, 111. (AP) - Behind the pitching of Larry Mack, Berwyn captured an 8-3 victory Monday night over Murphysboro's defending champions in the title tame of the American Legion Junior Baseball Tournament.

Sime Running With Ease Now In Olympic Bid COVINA, Calif. (AP) - Dave Sime took two steps and limped off the track in pain—his bid for the 1956 United States Olympic team shattered. Sime, resting in a chair at the Olympic team's training camp near here, didn't talk much Monday of the leg injury that ruined his 1956 chances and still haunts him. He talked of the new Sime — healed and flashing the old speed that has made him a surprising threat for a gold medal at Rome. 'I'm four-tenths of a second better now than at the Olympic trials," the former Duke University athlete said. "Each week I feel stronger." Siihe had been considered no setter than a darkhorse even to make the United States team. In the trials he tied for the third and final spot on the 100-meter team. Two straight victories in pre- Olympic meets have assured, him of a starting berth at Rome. The second came last Friday night at .long ' Beach when he ran 100 meters in 10.5 seconds—one-tenth slower than at the times but against a seven - mile-an-hour wind. Sime, who four times in 1956 \ and 1957 equaled the world's 100- yard dash record of 9.3 seconds, doesn't talk about Germany's Armin Hary or Canada's Harry Jerome, who recently broke the world's 100-meter record with clockings of 10 flat. Sime has had leg trouble ever since he first hurt it in the 1956 collegiate trials and then tried to run In the Olympic trials two weeks later. 'I've had hamstring trouble in my leg all spring," he said. "But this steady training and weather have helped me. Now I'm ready."
