Missed Putt Forces Seiiioi Golf Playoff RYE. N.Y. (AP) — Partly be cause no one told the congress nan, it'll take an 18-hole playof today to decide the 59th annua U.S. Seniors Golf • Association Championship. e t ). Jack Westland, 58, forme U.S. Amateur champion fron Everett, Wash., and John Bart lett, a 56-year-old oil marketing- executive from San Marino, Calif, shared first place after the 36 holes of regular competition will 146 totals. After leading the field of -100 seniors through the first rounc Tuesday with a 7.1, Westland came to the last hole at the Apawamif Country Club course Wednesday becoming a needing a birdie to beat Bartlet by one stroke. His fl-iron approacl nestled five feel from the pin Sinking the five-footer woulc mean the championship. But no one had told Westland he needed to sink the putt and h hadn't asked anyone. His putting stroke was too timid and the bal stopped a foot short. He holed oul for a par 4. a 75 for the day anr a 146 total—matching that of Bart lett, who was in the clubhouse waiting it out with his seconc straight 73. "I didn't know." said Westland who won the National Amateui title in 1952. "If someone had tok me, I'd have gone for it boldly Instead, I was just playing i' safe." The two West Coast golfers wound up three strokes ahead ol the next in line—Egon Quittner ol Jenkintown, Pa., and J. Walcott Brown of Sea Girt, N.J., tied for third with 149. Warren Brown of New York was fifth with 150. Ttvo-Horse Race At Belmont NEW YORK (AP)—There'll be t least five 3-year-old colts at he starting line in the 95th run- ing on the 5125,000-added Belmont Stakes at Aqueduct Saturday. But if past performances, work- uts and opinion of experts mean nything, the New York Racing .ssociation could save time and ffort by making out a $99,200 heck in advance payable to Rex Sllsworth. Standing out like a lone man in bevy of bathing beauties is Ellsworth's Candy Spots, the mottled chestnut who has bowed only once in nine starts and has won four $100,000-plus races this year. His lone defeat came in the Kentucky Derby, where he ran third behind John W. Galbreath's Chateaugay. Chaleaugay, runner-up to the California-owned Candy Spots in the Preakness, will be among the small field in the Belmont. But off his disappointing workout Wednesday, he doesn't figure to be on the same race track with the son Room mothers Mrs. J. J. Finn!of Nigromante-Candy Dish, and Mrs. T. L.

At Ihe President's request, MacArthur hammered out some stopgap truce measures in March, aimed at keeping the two factions at ease until after the 1964 Olympics in Tokyo. Under that agreement, the AAU given the right to sanction drafted by Boslon, and Detroit left wing Val Fonteyne, drafted by New York.

In addition to llebenlon, Boston drafted Wayne Rivers, a minor leaguer owned by Detroit. open meets, meets involving both college and non-college athletes. And the USTFF was given the right of sanctioning the athletes themselves in such meets. That's the problem involving the AAU meet.

By JERRY L1SKA Associated Press Sports Writer CHICAGO (AP)—The wondrous Chicago Cubs were within one ?ame of the National League- eading San Francisco. <G!ants today, but the Cubs' head coach, Bob Kennedy, said, "Let's not ;el excited about this — it's a ong season." The "old pro" attitude of Kennedy, who has taken real charge of the erstwhile rudderless Cubs, n-obably has more to do with Chicago's surprising surge than any scattered heroics by Cub players. "Sure, we've beaten San Francisco three straight in this stand," said Kennedy after the Cubs thumped the Giants, 9-5 and i-4, in Wednesday's twin bill, vhich marked Chicago's ninth and ,0th triumphs in their last 12 games. But Kennedy, a 15-year major league playing veteran, added: * "Let's not go ovevboard yet.

Uimker Club Candidate off a boat on Gilead Slough and attempted to step onto a dock. As he took the step, the boat pulled away from the dock and Cook and his motor hit the water with a big smash. After climbing back out of the water and recovering the motor, and observing no one was about, Cook attempted to sneak into the cabin where he and his wife were visiting to change clothes but was spotted by his hosts, Mr. and Mrs. P. R. Harvey, Avalon Street, East Alton. Cook took much ribbing about trying to wash a motor the hard way. The two couples spent sev- ral days at the cabin and landed large numbers of bluegill, channel catfish and crappie. The carp were also rolling in the vicinity. Later Cook paid rental on his boat with his wet money further exposing his dunking. Other FisJiing Scores Other anglers at Gilead Fishing Spots, between Hardin and Batchtown, included John Zarr and Don Swappe, both of Mt. Olive. The men fished two days and took more than 100 fish on trotline and pole and lines. The catch consisted of mostly catfish and one turtle. Mrs. Dixon, operator of the fishing area, said the water is up to normal. Earl Carstens, a bait dealer there, said the bluegill are really hitting and those that score zero are not fishermen. Leonard Selllers, 606 Wyss St., said the lish were biting Tuesday below the new Chain of Rocks Dam off the Illinois shore. He scored 26 stripped bass averaging % to IV*. pounds and five walleyes averaging one to two pounds. The fish were striking on yellow and white casting jigs, sonics and shysters in a three or four hour also fish. period.

BASEBALL HEROES By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS BATTING—Lou Brock, Cubs, collected five hits in nine at-bats, ncluding double, triple and homeland scored six runs in 9-5, 5-4 doubleheader sweep over National £ague leading San Francisco that moved Cubs to within one ;ame o£ first place. PITCHING-Ray Gulp, Phillies, posted third shutout with third hree-hitter, checking St. Louis en •oute to 6-0 victory. team effort by a club going all out to prove they're not a ninth- place outfit like the wise guys all said." If there is any clue to the resurgence of the Cubs, who have a 30-23 record—seven games over the .500 mark — it may be the baseball-wise guidance of Kennedy, despite only one year of previous managerial experience at Salt Lake City, nnd the canny over-seeing of alh'etic director Bob Whitlow. Former Air Force Col. Whitlow, since he took over an apparently nebulous job of running owner P. K. Wrigley'n "college of coaches" setup last spring, has flown a crafty course. Whitlow, in spring training, disported as a fun-loving member of the Cub family. But when he perceived that Kennedy was bringing a realistic and extremely capable managerial touch to the Cubs—without a manager for thre« seasons — Whitlow quickly dropped the "big brother" cloak and became a hands-off but sincere backer of the head coach. "I've been around baseball too long to start selling World Scries tickets in early June," said Kennedy. "We may be just a lucky ball club at the moment, or we could be 'hitting a solid stride. Only time will tel.'.." The Cubs, who have taken six of nine games this season from San Francisco, planned to send Larry Jackson. '7-5) against the Giants' Juan Marichal (8-3) in today's fourth and filial game of the series. In Wednesday'.-; twin triumph over the Giants, Ihe Cubs had a flock of heroes, including the suddenly-ignited Ernie Banks, who belted his ninth and 10th homers In the opener in a five-homer Cub assault, and Lou Brock, who tallied six runs for the (.'ay. The White Sox had a chance to go into first place in the American League, but the Los Angeles Angels handed them an 8-2 defeat in the second game of a twi- night doubleheuder in Los Angeles. The Sox won Ihe first game 3-0 behind Johnny Buzhardt's clutch pitching. Buzhardt, now 6-2, was tagged tor nine hits, but shut the door on the Angels when it counted. Dave Nicholson hit his llth home run with none in the second nnd Jim Landis stroked No. 7 with one on in the fifth to account for the White Sox scoring. Nicholson added two singles to the round-tripper. .A home run by Floyd Robinson with one in the sixth in the second game wiped out an Angel 1-0 lead, but then the roof fell in on starter Ray Herbert. Herbert, 5-3, took the loss. Ken McBride 5-5 was the winner. The Sox are idle today.
