THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 19,1963 •MMMMHMMMM>MM*MMMMMMMMMBiMM la ^ HM Golf Rules Come Closer ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH PAGE TH1RT*-SEVJMN To Unity NEW YORK (AP)-Hopes of a worldwide golf code appear doomed, but U.S. amateurs and professionals are getting closer together on a uniform set of playing standards. This was the general reaction today to the announcement by the U.S. Golf Association that it is making four amendments, effective Jan. 1, 1964, which are at variance with the rules adopted by the Royal and Ancient Club of St. Andrews. The general effect is this: While golf will be played differently in Britain and the United States it will look more like one game in this country. The new rules, softening the penalties on unplayable lies and by local option on out-of-bounds, are more In line with those used by the pros on the Professional Golfers Association tour. They also should be welcomed by the lowly duffers. They cut down the costs of mistakes. The Royal and Ancient, which presides over the sacred ground where the game supposedly was born, and the U.S. Golf Association make the rules by which most of the world plays the game. The PGA, which runs the multimillion-dollar tour which has spawned such links capitalists as Arnold Palfer and Jack Nicklaus, has been operating under still a different set of standards. Here are the four basic changes in the USGA rules, not supported by the R & A: 1. Flagstick: A ball striking an unattended flagstick when played from the putting green or within 20 yards of the hole will be a penalty of loss of hole in match play and two strokes in stroke play. (At present, and under the R & A code, there is no penalty). 2. Unplayable Ball: The penalty to be cut from two strokes to one stroke for dropping the ball from an unplayable lie. As an alternative, a ball may be dropped within two club lengths of the point where the unplayable ball lay. The alternative of stroke and distance is retained. 3. Provisional Ball: May be played only for a ball which is lost or out-of-bounds and may not be played for a ball which is unplayable or in a water hazard (The R & A code will allow a provisional ball for a ball lost, ou of bounds or unplayable). 4. Local Rules. Local commit tees will be permitted to make certain provisions dealing with local conditions. On an out-of bounds, a ball may be dropped under penalty of one stroke, with in two club-lengths of the place uccessful overseas swing and op a jet flight home. Asked why he was ashamed to e here, the world's champion aid Wednesday night: "You ught to be able to figure that ut." And when asked whether it was nancial or family matters that rought him back, he retorted: That's getting just plain nosey." Listen left British boxing circles uzzing Wednesday with his sud- en departure. A boxing writer or a London newspaper said the lampion had a tiff with his ad- /iser, Jack Nilon, who denied this /as so. The Midlands inspector f the British Boxing Board of ontrol, William Cotterill, said iston had accused him of "send- ng 'two broads' up to his room" ut that he convinced the cham- ion it wasn't true. Sonny himself said he was eaving because of the illness 01 is daughter, Eleanor, 12, al ome in Denver. The mention ol he girl was something new in tself. It had not been known that >iston was a father. At the Listen residence in north- ast Denver, the champion's wife f nine years, Geraldine, said the girl is Listen's daughter—and her tepdaughter—and that the child where the original ball crossed the boundary line. last Stan Musial DeniesRumor ST. LOUIS (AP)—Stan Musia of the St. Louis Cardinals has denied reports that he might help one of the candidates for the Mis souri Democratic governor nom ination. Musial, an outfielder who ha announsed his retirement at th end of this season, said Wednesday he had no political ambitions He said an announcement from Warren Hearnes, who is seekin the Democratic governor nomina tion, listing Musial as a speake at a Hearnes rally in Sikeston Mo. "disturbed" him. Musial said he planned to at tend the rally Oct. 17, but he ha not agreed to speak. "I like Warren Hearnes as personal friend, and I do not wan to do anything that might embar rass him," Musial said. "I have no intention of engag ing in any political campaign an I'am not seeking any appoint ment," Musial continued. Dave Marr Captures Pro-Am at Portland PORTLAND, Ore. (AP)-Dav Marr fired a six-under-par 35-31— 66 Wednesday and won the pro amateur event, a curtain-raise for Thursday's J30.000 PortlaiK Open Golf Tournament Tying for runnerup honors at 6 In the 18-hole round at the par 36-36—72 Columbia - Edgewate County Club course were Pai Bondeson with a 36-31 and Bo Goetz, 34-33. Jack Nicklaus, defending Port land Open champion, was tied to seventh place with 32-37-69 with Lionel Hebert, Dave Hill an Tommy Aaron. Sonny Liston Mad, But No Explanation DENVER (AP) — Heavyweight hampion Sonny Liston, back ome suddenly and mysteriously om a British exhibition boxing >ur, says he is "ashamed to be i America". But he doesn't say why, any lore than he will explain what rompted him to break off his was in good health and attended school Wednesday. Nilon and Listen's sparring partner, Foneda Fox, made another swirl in the conflicting rumors stirred up by the champion's abrupt flight. They said Sonny had not one, but two daughters, and that the older one, Mary, is 17. This would mean Liston fa- hered a child when he was about 13. He is now 29, according to ling, the boxing magazine, or 30. according to Ben Bentley, his aide. But Liston has offered no light on his age, his parental state, his relations with boxing associates and officials, or his reason for returning stateside. The champion was slow rising from his seat after his jet landed at the Denver Airport. He made up for the delay by striding at a near-run down the loading ramp and into terminal. the He concourse swung a at the heavy black cane as he loped, and he treated reporters like a pack of unworthy contenders pestering him for a match. He stopped suddenly and announced: "I'm ashamed to say that I'm in America." But wasn't it the British with whom he was supposed to be angry? "You should see the way they treated me," the champion replied. "It made me ashamed to be from America." His only approach to an explanation of his return was: "Well, I have problems." Brother Bill Stars Like Brother Mel ST. LOUIS — Bill Triplett is o longer "Nel's littleb rother," He grew up during the St. Louis Cardinal' sizzling 34-7 season open- ng victory over the Dallas Cow- )oys. Ever since December 1961 when the New York Giants made him their sixth draft choice, Bill has been known as the younger brother of Mel Triplett, regular fullback on the strong Giant teams of the late '60s. The fraternal bond is still there, but today Bill Triplett can more >recisely be referred to as the National Football League's second leading rusher, and the second looms even bigger when you realize the No. 1 man is five-time champion Jim Brown, of Cleveand. Mel played six years with the Giants, but Bill never got to wear a New York uniform. Before he had even been graduated from Miami of Ohio, Bill was traded by the Giants to St. Louis in the deal that sent quarterback Ralph luglielmi to New York. Cardinal Coach Wally Lemm said at the time: "Triplett Is strong and fast and was highly regarded by Cardinal scouts. He not only Is an outstanding fullback prospect, but also is a fine defensive player." The defensive aspect of Bill's ability almost sounded like an after-thought, but that's where BUI ended up playing last year, and by late season was adequately filling a hole that had bothered the Cards all year. His total offensive work amounted to two carries for 12 yards. But last weekend when the Cardinals came out in a straight T-formation (that's right — three backs behind the quarterback) with two ends split about 10 to 12 yards, there was Triplett at the right half spot, in the Cotton Bowl. The Cardinals used the tight T for only three series, but Triplett stayed In there all night, and when the game was over he had gained 82 yards In 12 carries and caught two passes for 51 yards. The Cards moved 79 yards in nine plays to take the lead away from the Cowboys, and Triplett accounted for 68 on those yards. On second and nine, at the Cardinal 22, he went 38 yards on a swing pass, and on third and one, at the Dallas 31, Biff gained 30 on a straight dive play that set up the score that made it 10-7 Cards, with 1:25 to go in the half. St. Louis scored 10 more points before the intermission, and that was the ball game — the o n e in which Mel Triplett became "Bill's older brother." SID Travels To Evansville For Opener CARBONDALE - Although several positions are subject to late change, it may be that only one senior will be in Southern Illinois University's starting lineup Saturday night when the Salukis open on the road against Evansville (Ind.) College. Unless Coach Carmen ttccom makes last-minute switches at either of his two guard positions Dave Mullane, a 35-pound center from St. Louis, will be the only lineup. In addition, only (our of Southern's starters are juniors as brash sophomores have virtually taken over Southern's camp this fall. Three upstart second - year candidates, Jerry Hart, Morton Grove, Rich Weber, Mattoon and Percy Manning, Picayune, Miss., have nosed slightly ahead of returning lettermen in the backfield and Vic Pantaleo, Chicago, and Mitchell Krawczyk, Cleveland, are expected to be in Southern's line. One of the most closely-contested battles has been waged at the left-halfback spot where Weber Is rajehlng the nod over Charles Warren, Cen- tralla. Only a junior, Warren was SIU's best ground-gainer last season when he averaged 4.8 yards per try. The fleet- footed Weber, however, reported in superb condition this fall and has been able to stay just a step ahead, of his teammate. ' ' Anoher duel is going on at quarterback where Hart currently holds a slim edge over Dave Harris, Christopher, who saw considerable action last season behind the graduated Vern Pollock. The fact that Southern's new offense calls for more passing this season has been a definite advantage for the accurate-throwing sophomore ace who completed 17 of 35 attempts in three NOW OPEN 3 NIGHTS A WEEK-MON.THURS.-FRI. 9 to 9 SEARS prices Reduced-Buy Now! freshmen games a year ago. Manning, who like Weber is a transfer student at SIU, has shaded junior Irv Rhodes, Ronco, Pa., for the fullback berth while Krawczyk is playing ahead of seniors ar- ry Wagner, St. Louis, and Jim Minton, St. Anne. Junior halfback Harry Bobbitt, Carbondale, is a definite starter as are classmates Bill Lepsi, Chicago, at right end, Jack Langi, Woodbury, N.J., at right tackle, Earl O'Malley, Fairfield, at left guard, and freshman Tom Massey, Runnemede, N.J., at left end.
