Best Amateurs Will Be Here Next Sunday will be kick-off day in Racine for one of the state's best golf tournaments — the state amateur. Racine Country Club is the host, but Meadowbrook will join in to provide a qualifying course Monday and Tuesday. A pro-amateur event will be held Sunday. The field will be split in half Monday and Tuesday with each group qualifying one day on each course. Then comes the main tournament. This event can give Racine golfers and non-golfers as well the best opportunity they will have in some time to see the state's best amateurs in action. Both Racine Country Club and Meadowbrook are in excellent condition. Rain Friday night improved already good fairways. Greens are near perfect. Not all of the state's best amateurs are from outside of Racine. Beau Melik, Bob Silver, Legs Meissner, Harold Knuth, Bill Angel, LeRoy May and several others from Racine are among the best in the state. They will be competing with other leading golfers from around Wisconsin. Altogether, 202 adults and 84 juniors will be on hand. It is one of the slate's outstanding golf tournaments. It will be an opportune time for golf fans to see the way the game should be played. * * * * * * Braves' All-Sfar Farms When Fred Haney automatically became pilot of the National League All-Stars because his team is defending pennant winner and when Del Crandall, Hank Aaron and Eddie Mathews were picked to start, it looked like a pretty good representation for the Milwaukee Braves. The Braves have had a number of minor league farmhands on all-star teams, too. Among them are pitcher Georges Maranda and outfielder Lee Maye (called up Friday to help the parent club) from Louisville in the American Association; pitcher Ray Ripplemeyer, shortstop George Holder and outfielder Em Lindbeck of Atlanta in the Southern Association; pitchers Bobby Hendley, Charlie Gorin and Tony Diaz and outfielder Howie Bedell of Austin in the Texas League; pitcher Larry Maxie and Hank Hemmerly and catcher-outfielder Sid Golfader of Cedar Rapids of the Three-I League, and catcher Dan Newman, pitcher Dave Eilers, first baseman Hap Richie and outfielder Hermond Hubbard of Midland in the Texas' Sophomore League. Brave's farm teams have been winning more than their •hare of pennants the last three years. Their players also have been picked to all-star teams. It all speaks well for John Mullen, farm director, and his assistant, Rollie Hemond. * * * * * * Packers Are Resplendent The Packers should be a better football team this fall simply because they hnve an outstanding coach and general manager, And they couldn't be much worse. Even if their football, doesn't improve, however, they wil be a better looking team — all because of some new, classy uniforms. This fall's jersey's will be "myrtle green" which, I'm told is a "sort of dark green." They will have white letters and gold and white stripes on the arm. The pants will be a "shim mering gold" with green and white stripes. The socks wil match the jerseys with gold and white stripes and helmets will be gold. For games away from home, white socks and jerseys will be substituted for green. In past years, Green Bay has played in dark green or dark blue shirts with light tan pants. They may not be "splendid" this fall, but at least they wi be "resplendent." Nielsen Fires 70; Dr. Fazen Paces Teams at RCC Best score reported Saturday from city golf courses was a par 70 by assistant pro Tom Nielsen at Johnson Park, but muscling in for honors was Dr. Louis Fazen, Jr. Fazen, shooting his all-time low round, stroked a 79 at Racine Country Club and a 17-handicap gave him a net of 62 in pacing his four-man team to a victory in the July Sweepstakes. Stoffel Nets 70 J. D. Postorino added 88-9 15-Year-Old Girls Shatter Records in AAU Swim Meet REDDING, Calif. — m — Petite, blonde Becky Collins, a 15-year-old high school girl from Indianapolis, Saturday night swam to a new world record of 1 minute and 11.2 seconds in the 110-yard butterfly race at the National AAU Women's Swimming championships. Another 15-year-old, Chris von Saltza of Saratoga, Calif., established a meet record of 4 minutes 59.4 seconds which also beat the existing American record for the 440-yard freestyle as she bested Sylvia Ruuska, of Berkeley, Calif. The old meet and American record of 5:08.5 was set by Australian Lorraine Crapp in 1957, but Chris has a better time of 4:52.2 pending as an American record. The husky blonde broke into tears after beating her long-time rival in the tough quarter mile event. The two had matched strokes for 330 yards before Chris began pulling away. Miss Ruuska Close 79, Tom Modine 78-5—73 and Bill Long a 86-10—76 for team total of 290. The opposing squad needed 297 strokes, with Herman Lynch scoring 77.4—73, Dr. E. L. MacVicar 79-2—77. Beau Melik ' 77-0— 77 and Bud Stoffel 75-5—70. Others breaking 80 at RCC were Bob Hagensick, 76, Paul yle, 78, and Ray Goodsell, 79. July match play at Meadowbrook saw Hagensick notch a -up win over Jack Nelson in Class A. 20-Hole Match Dr. William Madden topped Herb Johnson 2-1 and Frank Matagrano edged Ed Speer 1- up in Class AB, and in B Class, Dr. A. O. Braatz turned back Harold Qualheim 1-up in 20 20 holes, Joe Gleis.sner ousted Mick Miller 1-up while Paul Adrianson was a 2-1 victor Over Joe Gramza. Class C upper results had Dr. W. L. Lynn going 20 holes before beating Pete Barry 1 up. Bill Herzog took Gordy VanRemmer 4-3 and Earl Goddard was a 1-up winner over Joe Buchek.

Jack Dempsey, Ed Bpeer. Jay iMbt ^Pitei Set Meet a. Somewhat Miffed Nick Demos turned in the best play of his young career Saturday when he demolished Bill Nelson, 7 up and five to play, to win the junior city golf tournament's 13-and-under championship at Washington Park. The front nine saw Demos take a five-hole lead over Nelson in a battle of 13-year-olds. Demos sizzled with a 38 on the first nine, despite a two-stroke penalty for an out of bounds ball on the fifth hole. The new champ needed only 14 putts over the opening nine holes. Five Birdies NcLson battled Demos even on the second nine, with the latter scoring a nifty 39, but Demos, playing even par, won two of the first holes on the third trip around to cop the title. His total birdie count for the day was five. Demos and Nelson reached the finals from a field of 40 boys who launched qualifying play last Monday. Others Monday Two other boys' tournaments will get underway at Washington Park Monday, for 15-and- under and 18- and under. Entries at this point are around 12 in each but tourney director Mike Bcncriscutto, pro, figures on having al least 20 boys in each meet. A now champion is assured in the IS-aiul-undcr bracket because 1958 titlist Dave Snider now is over the age limit. The 15-and-under champ last year was Paul Loth who may play in the older tournament this time. 10,000 Meter Race Ends in Confusion PHILADELPHIA —(XP)— For a while it appeared officials would need a summit meeting to settle the windup of the 10,000 meter race at the U.S.­ Russian track meet on l-'rank- fusion they brought. Two of them collapsed, one during the race, and another after staggering, running backwards and sideways across the finish line. Officially, the event was won by Russia's Alexei Desyatchiko Miss Ruuska had a 5:04.3, and Donna Graham of Indianapolis was third at 5:04.9. Chris became the first American girl to break the five-minute time for the race. Miss Collin's feat in the 110- yard butterfly marked the third world record for this meet over the 55-yard Lake Redding Park pool. Nancy Ramey of the Seatt (Wash.) Athletic Club, who held the record at 1:11.3, battled stroke-for-stroke'with the Hoosier lass and lost by only a foot, although timed in 1:11.8. Earlier in these championships Miss Ruuska established a world record of 5:40.2 for the 440-yard individual medley and Carin Cone of Houston, Texas, swam to a 2:37.9 record for the 220 yard backstroke. Canadian Irene MacDonald, the 25-year-old who represents the Los Angeles Athletic Club, won her second diving title with a victory in the 3-meter springboard event. Friday night she won the 1-meter springboard crown and in both instances defeated defending champion Paula Jean Myers Pope of Los Angeles. Patsy Willard of the Mesa, Ariz., Aquatic Club took second as she scored 447.40 to 467.75 for the winner. Mrs. Pope was third at 445.50. CHICAGO —(/P)— Joey Jay, the Milwaukee Braves bonus baby, apparently is miffed because his manager, Fred Haney, commented recently that the 23-year-old right-hander wasn't hustling enough to gel himself into shape. "If I'm not in shape," he said after a pre-game workout before the Braves lost to the Chicago Cubs 4-2, "it's because 1 didn't get a chance to pitch all spring. "You've got to pitch to get In shape. AU the running in the world won't do you any good if you sit around in the bullpen." Jay did considerable running and shagging flies in the outfield Thursday which led Haney to comment: "Maybe this will wake him up. For that matter, maybe it Comedy on Tap at Cutie Game will wake up some of the oth- Cuties. Slapstick comedy on the baselines is in store at Horlick Field Monday at 8:15 p.m. when the California Cuties meet the Jacobsen softballers. Men dressed in women's garb, the Cuties can be bected to provide some zany entertainment, with takeoffs on the Andrew Sisters and chorus routines. Though the Cuties clown a lot, the team is made up of players who have had lots of diamond experience. Some of them played pro baseball before finding more money as in Field Saturday. It is doubtful if even Sccre-jin 31:40.16. Hubert Pyar Na- lary of State Christian Merterjkivi of Russia was Seconal, By Carm Papara Anyone with even a gram of golfing blood In his, or her, veins will focus attention July 27 upon Racine Country Club and Meadowbrook, site of the annual state amateur tournament. One of the heaviest fields in years, 202 amateurs ond 84 jun- ors, beot the entry deadline to shoot for the two crowns. Defending state amateur champion is Dick Sucher of Ozaukee while the junior winner a year ago was Tom Nelson of Green Bay's Oneida club. Meadowbrook will be used only for the qualifying rounds on Monday and Tuesday in which 64 golfers will advance in the regular event. Thirty two will go into the junior match play. Sucher Ready Sucher is serious about being a repeater, having played .several practice rounds on the two courses. He smacked a 34 on one nine and more recently he hammered a 72 round, which will be one over par at RCC for tourney purposes. The big week will start on Sunday with a pro-amateur event at Racine Country Club. Then on Monday, half the entries in the amateur and junior mect.s will shoot at RCC and the other half at Meadowbrook, the players alternating on Tuesday. First and second rounds, 18 holes each, are .set for Wednesday in the amateur and junior classes; two more rounds arc on top Thursday, with 36-hole scmi-flnals coming off Friday. The championships will be decided in 36-hoIe play on Saturday. Other activity finds a Junior vice-president's flight for the 16 boys of 16 years and under who foil to qualify for the Junior championship. Then there is a Pator-Filius event for fath er-son teams on Friday and play in the Vice-President flight is slated Thursday with finals Saturday. 28 from Racine Bob Silver, Bill Angel. Jack Nelson and LeRoy May. Juniors competing for Racint are Jim Shepherd, of Meadowbrook, and Lance Melik, Bill Johnson and Don Curtin, ol RCC. Larson Won In '58 Racine's last state amateur titlist was Leif Larson, noW assistant pro at Racine Country Club, who beat Steve Bull 3-1 in 1955 in what wos an all- Racine final. Bull is the pro at Meadowbrook. Washington Park pro Mike Bcncriscutto captured back-to<r back state titles in 1949-50 and before that, Wllford Wehrle dominated the tournament with a win in 1937, then scoring three straight (1943-45) for a total of four. One of Wehrle's victories was at the expense of a fellow townsman, Willie • Thompson, in what was the first alURacine match in the finaLs. The state golf association has set a limit of 18 holes of practice for entries at RCC on lursday and at Meadowbrook on Friday. The group also hiked entry fees for amateurs from .$8.50 to $10 because, says asso- ation president, Walter Gaedke, the 1958 meet lost around .$700. However, the Junior fee remained static at $5. and Russian l-orcign Minister Andre Gromyko would have solved the dilemma. As the sun .set over Franklin Field, track writers still were arguing over the finish. There were as many versions as writers of which there were some 400. It's doubtful if the competitors themselves realized the con- ers, too " Haney wouldn't elaborate on "the others" he thought were not bearing down but it was obvious he was disgusted with the lack of spirit shown by some of his men. Jay said that he and Haney had talked over the manager's comments "and we both decided to forget the incident." SEEKING AID RIO DE JANEIRO — (JP) — The Brazilian Olympic committee said it is asking President Juscelino Kubitschek to try to get enough government aid to send 180 athletes to the Pan American Games at Chicago. Mary Lena Faulk Leads with 215 ALLIANCE, Ohio — (JP) — Mary Lena Faulk, of Thomas- viUe, Ga., scored her second straight sub-par round Saturday to take a three-stroke lead at the end of 54 holes in the $12,500 Alliance International women's golf tournament. Miss Faulk, after a 69 Friday came from four strokes off the pace to wheel into the lead as she .finished with a rain- drenched 70 Saturday for a 215 total, two over par.

Stillmon Faces Melius Tonight Eddie Stillman, Milwaukee, encounters a serious threat tonight from Miles Melius of Slinger in the lOth stock car racing program at Waukcgan Speedway. Melius, state stock car racing chaimpion the past two years, virtually made a clean sweep of last week's honors to earn 235 points. Tonight's feature event will find him as major challenger to Stillman. Milt Curcio vaulted into third place in the point standings, and the Racine driver is ac- gorded a good chance in the feature. Point totals so far have Stillman with 1,860; Bob Ratajzcyk, Milwaukee, 1,260 and Curcio with 1,115. •Around 65 cars and drivers have entered the nine-event show, with time trials starting at 7:15 p.m. Sam Snead's Golf School * * * * * * The Scuff: Cause and Cure with Max lYuex of Warsaw, ind., third. Bob Soth of Long Beach, Calif., didn't even finish. He was carried off the track exhausted. What created the confusion was a stretch run by Truex which appeared to give him second place over the staggering Pyaranakivi. The crowd roared wildly as the 128 pound Truex, 19.57 national collegiate cross country champion, churned the final 50 yards. There was bedlam when he surged past the Russian, apparently second. Truez Was 3d But when the official announcement came, Pyarnakivi was .second and Truex third. The crowd groaned and arguments began. Meet officials said Truex had been lapped by the Ru.s.s'ian and therefore his closing burst was meaningless. But that's not the way some track people saw it. Chic Werner, veteran Penn State track coach and his assistant, Norm Gordon, disagreed. They said the winner, Des yatchickov, ran an extra lap; the second Russian ran the correct number of laps; Truex ran an extra lap; Truex was second and the Russian third. Gordon said the winning time should have been 30.16. Wer ner agreed. Dumore Slugs Motors Twice Racine, which has done quite handsomely in past state ama teur meets, will have 28 shoot ers bucking for Sucher's crown From RCC are tourney chairman Beau Melik, Dick Miller, W.

Week 2 Season 10 0 S 0 1 7 S6 2 29 5 63 1 14 1 21 Usually when a player hits behind the ball, he has tried to hit the ball too hard. In an effort to get maximum power, he has lunged at the ball and in so doing dropped his right .shoulder. This sort of misdirected power is absolutely fatal to an iron shot. Once in a while you can get off when you are hitting a wood. The clubhead bounces behind the point of impact and into the ball, and you get some sort of shot. But with an iron you get a miserable, pooped shot. The way to prevent this is to swing with ease, feeling that your straight left armi illustrated by the dotted line in today's pic­ ture, is carrying the clubhead all the way through the ball. "Hit the ball hard, easy" is an old-time golfing term—but it still holds true! Dumore put on a slugging exhibition at Douglas Park Saturday, collecting 36 runs on 34 hits to thrash Industrie Motors 16-0 and 20-4 in Sen ior League Baseball. John Moreno pitched two-hit ball in the opener, fanning nine batsmen, while his mates built him a 10-0 lead in two innings T. Ruffalo had three hits, one of them a homer, while D, Metzger, T. Pettit and J. Rup pel also had three bingles each Dumore scored six runs in the second inning and five more in the fourtii to make a rout of the .second game, in which R. Tabbert hurled a four- hitler and struck out 12. Top sluggers were H. Ruffalo with a homer, triple and double and D. Schneider, who poled a pair of two-baggers and two triples. The wins gave Dumore a 7-6 record and fifth place in the nine-team league. All games in the Cadet-Pa rochlai A-B and YMCA leagues wer^ washed out. orky Oliver, Rosburg Lead SALT LAKE CITY, —t/P)- Ed (Porky) Oliver of Denver and Bob Rosburg of Palo Alto Calif., took the second-round cad Saturday in the $7,500 Utah Open. Each fired 5-undcr-par 67s over the 6,980-yard Oakridge Country Club course near Sa Lake City. That gave them 36-hole to tals of 137. The 72-hole tourna ment ends Monday. Zell Eaton of Pomona, Call a former Utah open champion tied a 69 onto his first round 70 for the runnerup spot. Billy Casper, the nationa open champion from Chula Vis ta, Calif., wont one over par and finished the round at 73 for a 36hole total of 141. It tied him with Joe Greer of Yakima, Wash., who has 7170—141. rans Will See Fabulous Satch Racine fans will get a look at the fabulous Satchel Paige, one of the outstanding pitchers n baseball annals, when Mw Havana Cuban Stars appear here Saturday night against th« Racine Blues, a local semi-pro nine. Paige, a star in Negro and organized baseball since 1928 estimated), will face a Blues ineup which, as this was writ- ton, had accounted for IS vlo* torics and two defeats againit all competition. Blues losses were by margins of 1-0 at Loves Pork, III., and 3-0 at the hands of Kenosha LULAC. Will Be Hera Paige may not hurl the entire game but he definitely yrM be on hand. The incomparable Satch obviously does not caro to go nine innings every night since the Cuban Stars' schedule keeps him traveling. In a recent game against the Beloit Foxes Paige went three innings, giving up three hits, striking out four, and walking none. Control has always been the remarkable part of his pitching form and, even at the age of 50 or 60 (take your pick), he hasn 't lost it Joe DiMaggio once described Paige as the fastest pitcher ha ever saw. Dizzy Dean, In his own inimitable fashion, observed, "Say, old Dlz is pretty fast back in 1933-34, but you know my fast ball looks Ilka a change of pace alongside that little pistol bullet old Satcliel shoots up to the plate. Not So Fast Satch isn't quite that fast any more, but he still has plenty on the ball. Most of the Havana Cuban Stars, a group operating out of Beloit, are youngsters on their way up. A number of major league scouts watch their performances closely. Last year, without Paige, the! Stars had an 87-36 record* against the nation's top semipro, pro and league clubs. This year,. with Paige, they have been winning at an even faster clip. The first-round leader, Harold West of Longview, Wash., fell apart and shot 4-over-par 76, for a total of 143. McCreary Hurls for Racine Blues Tom McCreary, who has a 3-0 record, is slated to hurl for the Racine Blues today at Horlick Field at 2 p.m., against the Eagles of Maywood, 111. The tussle will be a conditioner for the Blues' July 25 meeting with the Cuban All- Stars and old Satchel Paige, says the Racine team manager John Holston. .Holston says he has added Willy Thompson to his pitcb ing staff for the Cuban All Star game. Thompson hurled for the Kenosha Chiefs in 1957. YMCA Baseball MONDAY R AM—Sou. Assoc., Lookouts vi. Tr»T- dors; Chicks vs. Ptllcani (Ponjr alum). »;45 AM—8o\j. Assoc., Volunteers »•.
