PAGE TEN- ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH SATURDAY, JUNE 22, 1963 Palmer in Three-Way Tie for Open Lead Jack Nicklaus Fades to 77 BROOKLINE. Mass. (AP) — Don'1 look now. but here comes that man again and this time Jnek Nieklaus isn't in his \\-»y. Arnold Palmer, golf's glamor boy. heads into Saturday's 36-hole wind-up of the 63rd National Open cliiimpionship with a well-timed e;»m<>, and not a worry in the world about Nicklaus, who trimmed him in n playoff for the tit if a year ago. A spectacularly fashioned 2-under-par 69 did the job for the bronzed 33-year-old Latrobe, Pa.. belter Friday, catapulting him into a three-way tie for the lead at 142 with his closest golfing buddy. Dow Finsterwald and a tough, 25-year-old Texan. Jarky Cupit. And while Palmer and nis mighty army of fanatics trampled the hallowed rolls and knolls of the 6.870-yard par 3.V3li—71 temple of tradition, Masters and reigning Open champion Nicklaus dropped out of sight. His great game suddenly gone sour after some experimenting with his driving style, Nicklaus flopped to a 77 and failed to survive the cut to the low 50 scorers and ties for the last two rounds. Itt ook a score of 152—10 over par for 36 holes—to qualify. Nicklaus, who had misfired to a 76 on Thursday's first round, wound up at 153. becoming the first champion to fail to get past the cut since Jack Fleck f'zzled in 1956, a year after he had beaten Ben Hogan in a 1955 championship playoff. The showdown appears headed for a live-man tussle among Palmer, Finsterwald, Cupit, and two seasoned players who'll start the day just three strokes off the pace, Tony Lema -and Julius (Moose) Boros. Dean Refram, a fledgling touring pro from Medinah, HI., and Walter Burkemo, 44-year-old former PGA champion from Franklin, Mich., are in between at 143. But Refram is 26 and probably doesn't have the experience to cope with such a pressure-filled wind-up. Other second-round results involving Illinois golfers include: Bill Ogden, Glenview, 73-76— 149. Bob Harris, Winnetka, 73-79— 152. Failing to qualify for the final 36 holes today are these golfers from Illinois: Bob Goalby. Belleville, 74-79153. Paul Bondeson, Northbrook, 7376—154. Bill Erfurth, Crete, 74-82-156. Errie Ball, Oak Park, 77-80— 157. Howie Johnson. Prairie View. 80-83-163.

(AP)—Veteran pro Marilynn Smith held a one- stroke lead with defending champion Mickey Wright waiting in the wings today as the 34th Women's Western Open Golf Tournament entered the third round at the Maple Bluff Country Club. The 34-year-old Miss Smith, a former national collegiate litlist from the University of Kansas, j fired a creditable 1-over par 75 and managed to hold off the bold challenge of Miss Wright for the slenderest of leads Friday at the halfway mark of 72-hole competition. The only entry in the field of 100 to conquer par 74 on a narrow, exacting 6,365-yard course in the opening round, Miss Smith hit the 36-hole mark with a 147 total. Miss Wright, seeking to become the pro circuit's top money winner a third straight year and holding a lead of some $3,000 on Miss Smith, made a stirring comeback after a first round 78. The 5-foot-l blonde blazed through a sunbaked course in 70 strokes for a 148. Trailing in order were Kathy Withworth with 151, Ruth Jessen with 153, Betsy Rawls with 154, Peggy Joyce Wilson with 155 and Marlene Bauer Hagge and Sandra Ilaynie with 156s.

Nats Drop 9th Straight Game LOS ANGELES (AP)—The Detroit Tigers started to make a run at the Washington Senators about 10 days ago. But the Senators have proved again they're a tough team to catch when the race is downhill. The ninth-place Tigers blew 10 straight games and still couldn't reduce their lead over lOth-place Washington to less than G games. Then, evidently deciding the team ahead of them might De somewhat easier to overtake, the Tigers broke their streak Friday night by beating eighth-place Kansas City. The Senators, obviously a more consistent team, kept their streak intact by losing their ninth straight, a 1-0 decision to the Los Angeles Angels. The Senators won only 60 games last season. At the rate they're going this year, they won't win 50. If they finished the season with their present percent age (.296), their record would be 48 victories and 114 losses. That's only six fewer losses than the New York Mets accumulated last season in their relentless pursuit of punishment. House Passes Boxing Laws SPRINGFIELD, 111. (AP) — The Illinois House has passed and sent to the Senate a bill that would prohibit men over 40 from boxing and put other restrictions on the sport in the state. The legislation, approved Friday, would prevent anyone convicted of a felony from being licensed as a manager or trainer. Ten-ounce gloves would be re quired under the bill, offered by Rep. Walter McAvoy, R-Chicago, except in championship bouts, in which eight-ounce gloves could be used. A manager would be limited to 20 per cent of a boxer's purse, and no person or organization sponsoring a match could lake more than 20 per cent of the gross receipts. McAvoy said that if the public is to regain confidence in boxing, the sport needs safeguards. SOD BUSTER BROOKLINE, Mass. — Defending Open golf championship.

Cincy Blanks Colts, Maloney Wins llth By JIM HACKLEMAN Associated Press Sports Writer It takes a touch of the unexpected to keep a longshot team close to the front in a pennant race—like a key hit from an ex- cricket player with a .215 batting average. That's what the Chicago Cubs got Friday when Andre Rodgers clubbed a run-producing single in the 10th inning that gave them a 6-5 victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates. Rodgers, a rangy shortstop from Cubs Nip Bucs In 10th, 6-5 CHICAGO (AP)—The Chicago Cubs are rolling along merrily and the season has reached a point where they no longer appear to be surprising. The team which finished ninth last season in the National League is not only sealing itself a first-division finish but shows all indication of being a constant contender. The Cubs ran their latest string to four victories with a 6-5 triumph over Pittsburgh in 10 innings Friday on Andre Rodgers' bases-loaded single. It marked the Cubs' fifth victory over Pittsburgh this season against one loss. Last year, the Cubs won only four games from the Pirates and lost 14. Ellis Burton, the Cubs' newest addition, hit his first National League home nin in the second inning for a 1-0 lead and singled and scored the winning run in the 10th. Burton will probably be shifted to center field when Lou Brock recovers from an injured leg and gives the Cubs the help they need in center field. Meanwhile, Glen Hobbie has pitched well in recent starts to become the fourth starter behind Dick Ellsworth, Bob Buhl and Larry Jackson. Catcher Dick Bertell has been hitting with authority in his effort to solve the catching problem. If Burton, Hobble and Bertell can come through, the Cubs could remain in contention throughout the season. They'll send Ellsworth (9-5) against the Pirates and Bob Friend (8-5) today. The Chicago While Sox pulled within one game of the league- leading New York Yankees when they registered a 2-0 victory ever the red-hot Cleveland Indians Friday night. Ron Hanson slammed a two- run home run in the ninth off Early Wynn for the triumph. Wynn, making his first start of the season, was seeking his 300th victory but svas bested by Juan Pizarro, who burled a six-hit tei and scored his eighth triumph against three losses. the Bahamas whose prowess at cricket led him to a major league baseball career, came up with the bases full and one out in the Cub 10th, and stroked his hit over the pulled-in Pirate infield. It was the fourth straight, victory for the Cubs, a second division club in the National League for the past 16 years and picked for another lower echelon finish this season. Despite the dire predictions, they're currently in fifth place, just 2 l /2 games from the top and only a point out of fourth. In other NL action—the Sandy Braves End Bolin's No-Hit Bid in Fifth MILWAUKEE (API—The Milwaukee Braves got twice as many runs as hits Friday nigiit and defeated the San Francisco Giants 6-3 by seizing on every break they got. Hank Aaron, most of the Braves batting punch so far, was out of action with an ailing back. And for four innings it appeared his absence would be fatal as the Braves were held hitless by Bob Bolin, with an assist from the scorekeepers. Frank Boiling had singled for the Braves in the first, but after the fourth the play was changed to an error against Giant third baseman Cap Peterson. Bolin's no-hit bid was dashed and he was chased when the Braves came to bat in the fifth and shoved over all of their runs. Tony Cloninger, with the four inning relief help of Bob Hendley, tools his second victory in six decisions. Frank Torre opened the Milwaukee fifth with his fourth homer. The Braves and Giants weiv set for a day game today, Bob Shaw 3-4, facing Billy OUell, JI-'H. BOWLING BOWL AHKNA Friday Nlghl Mixed Doubles Men -- A. Sheets 205, M. Sheets 200.

Koufax-Ron Perranoski pitching combination plus Tommy Davis' homer paced the Los Angeles Dodgers over first-place St. Louis 5-3; Milwaukee bunched six runs with only two hits in the fifth inning and whipped San Francisco 6-3; right-hander Jim Maloney became an 11-game winner with a four-hitter as Cincinnati blanked Houston 3-0; and the New York Mets snapped their latest losing string at five, trimming Philadelphia 3-1. Koufax was within one out of his third straight shutout in the Dodgers' decision over the Cards when Tim McCarver tagged a three-run homer with two away in Ihe last of the ninth. The star southpaw, now 11-3, issued a walk before giving way to Perranoski, who got the final out. Tommy Davis hit his homer with one on in the eighth and the blow proved decisive. Curt Simmons was nicked for all five Dodge] 1 runs. Bob Bolin of the Giants held Milwaukee without a hit until the fifth—when the Braves erupted. Joe Torre triggered the outburst with a homer, then Bolin came apart. A walk, an error, a hit batsman and a wild pitch tied the score at 2-2, two more walks forced in the go-ahead run, and Lee Maye capped it by slamming a bases-loaded triple against Bolin. Orlando Cepeda connected for two homers against Milwaukee winner Tony Cloninger. Maloney, winning his lifth straight and running his record to 11-2, was in a scoreless struggle with Houston's Ken Johnson until the Reds rallied for three runs in the last of the ninth. Bob Skinner singled across the first marker, another came in on Vada Pinson's ground out, and pinch batter Frank Robinson singled in the third. The fourth-place Reds now have won four in a row while Houston has lost five straight. Left-hander Al Jackson got the Mets' first hit against the Phils' Cal McLish, a leadoff single in the sixth, and scored the game's first run when Fran!-; Thomas drove in two with a double. Jackson also singled in the seventh, after a walk, and Jim Pier.snll bunted home New York's third run. Jackson pitched a seven-hitter for the last-place Mets. anil A story about a dove family is told by 'Roynl II. MeCleJInnd, executive secretary to the Illinois Federation of Sportsmen's Clubs, and fellow member of the Great LakesAssn. of Outdoor Writers: Dove Tenants It might be an insignificant matter to a lot of folks but the pair of doves that have been nesting now in the cedar tree in my back yard add n big dose of pleasure to my early springtime enjoyment. I am particularly interested in the success or failure of this pair of doves for I think it's the same pair that has built their nest in the same tree for the past several years. To make it even more interesting, it is a tree that I grew from seed. There is a small but very important feeling of accomplishment that goes along with this whole process of producing the tree that produces the doves, that perhaps produce pleasure for lots of other people. In some years my pair of doves has had hard sledding. Snow has covered this early nest. Wind has blasted the flimsy contraption, along with its cargo of eggs. The neighbor's cat has cilmbed to feast on young tender dove nestlings. Regardless of all past tragedies my dove pair has returned again this year undiscouraged and optomistic. In spite of frequent failures, an occasional family of two youngsters have tested their wings in my back yard. of Peace Some of my good friends can't understand how I can be so Maudlin about this pair of doves and its family, then go out with a gun next fall and shoot and eat this innocent, harmless symbol of peace. I don't quite understand it either but the fact ramains that I like to feel I'm contributing a little something to dove produc- tiond and I love to shoot these tricky targets that make delicious eating in the fall. My conscience is salved since I know that most of those doves I don't shoot will die anyway from some other cause before next spring rolls around. The Illinois Federaiton of Sportsmen's Clubs has consistently maintained that dove shooting should be allowed as long as dove populations are high and there ifc an adequate breeding stock. It helps to maintain the breeding stock by encouraging the planting of. pine trees which give the dove what it needs most, a good nesting spot. Youth-Age Bout At Garden NEW YORK (AP)—Boxing's old familiar story of the ambitious kid on the way up and the veteran struggling for survival will he re-enacted tonight at Madison Square Garden. Jose Stable of Cuba and New York is the fast- rising youngster. Charley Scott of Philadelphia is the experienced man with the big punch. Scott's career record is a lack luster 33-21 but he still has the big equalizer—a potent right hand punch. He has knocked out 18 opponents and has been stopped twice, by Gil Turner and Luis Rodriguez. Once one of the top ranked welters, Scoll, 27, now is fighting to stay in the "name 1 ' class. Stable, 22, was just another name in the book a year ago. Although he had developed quickly, the big win that put him into the higher echelon of the ranked fighters was his decision over Curtis Cokes at Sunnyside Gardens in New York, April 20. Stable has a 19-2-1 record for 22 pro fights, with six knockouts. He never has been stopped. The 10-round match will be carried on network (ABC) television at !) p.m. EST. A Permanent Job NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) College football players do just about everything during the summer. But Vanderbilt center Rudy Wieser has probably the most unusual way of keeping in shape. After six weeks of rugged Marine training at Quantico, Va., he will go home to Dallas and work in his father's beauty parlor as a hairdresser.
