Mackinac Race Starts Slowly; Wind Wrong Racine Has become a competitive golf center, at least for part of this summer. First came the Meadowbrook Invitational Tournament which turned out to be the most successful yet. Many of the state's top amateurs were here for the event. Next came the Tri-Course Metro Tourney which has become Racine's major tournament. The winner of that can now quite confidently term himself the area's golf champion. Nearly every topflight golfer here enters each year. The tournament this season was won by Wally Luka of Meadowbrook. Racine Country Club won the team event. RCC was the third club to win in the tourney's four-year history. Now comes two women's tournaments—the state public links test at South Hills (formerly Golfbowl) and the tournament of private club members at Meadowbrook. A Racine golfer, George Madsen, was one of two qualifiers from Wisconsin for the national public links tournament at Pittsburgh. That meant he was one of 150 in the United States. After two days of qualifying play there, he was one of 64 remaining for match play. Madsen lost in the first round of match play by a close margin of 1 up. His advance that far rated praise. Some private club golfers do not favor tournament play on their courses, but they have learned here in Racine that they have an obligation both to some of their members who do enjoy competition and to the cause of increasing golf interest generally to allow such tournaments. So it is good to see Racine activity increasing in competitive golf. * * * There used to be a good, young Softball pitcher down in the Town of Somers by the name of Frank Cox. He doesn't live there now, but he still is pitching great Softball. Cox joined the Peace Corps and is stationed in Venezuela. The other day, pitching for the University of Zulia at Maracaibo, he hurled the first perfect game in the history of the Venezuelan Softball Federation. He retired 21 consecutive batters in the seven- inning game and allowed only one ball to be hit out of the infield. It was a fly to center. His team whipped Mene Grande 3-0. Cox was graduated from St. Joseph High School in 1959 and Marquette University in 1964. * * * Russian basketball is growing up. The Soviets ordered from this country's Converse Rubber Co. 46 pairs of basketball sneakers with sizes 11 to 13 predominating. The Russian sports commissioner also ordered, however, one pair of size 18 and one of size 19. Converse first said the cost would be prohibitive, but an appeal to the company's "capitalistic instinct" ended the argument and the shoes were made and sent. If those sizes are necessary, Russian basketball most certainly must be growing up. CHICAGO — Most of the boats in the 58th Chicago- to-Mackinac Island Yachting! race, one of the world's longest fresh water events, were becalmed Saturday night off Evanston, a suburb of Chicago, by unfavorable winds and a heavy fog. Capt. George H. Lawrence, commander of the Coast Guard cutter Mackinac, accompanying the 120 yachts on their 333-mile race, said that the fog and northwestern winds slowed the pace at the start at 1 p.m. Saturday. It probably will be early Tuesday before the fleet straggles into Mackinac Island, Mich. The wind shifted to the northeast late Saturday to give the boats some chance to tack and move. The fleet plans to hug this shore qf Lake Michigan on a straight north course until it hits the Milwaukee area where it will head to the northwest. The Talisman, owned by Chicagoan George Quandee won last year's race. Three Racine boats are entered in this year's race. They are Chuck Veenstra's iScray, which will go on to the Port Huron-to-Mackinac race next weekend, Ed Aiello's Varuna and A. B. Bradley's Mar-y- Mar. In addition, Racine sailors are on the crews of other boats. Vite Thomas is on his 21st Mackinac race on the Red Jacket out of Chicago. Art Langlois also is on that boat while E. T.

J. Foyt and Rodger Ward are two of the winningest drivers in auto racing history. Neither has won a race this year, and they will try to remedy that today in the fourth annual 150-mile national championship race at the Trenton Speedway. The 30-year-oId Foyt, from Houston, Texas, has won this race the last two years fol- lifetime," Braves' righthander Bob Sadowski called to Umpire Al Barlick after the Pirates' Ozzie V i r g !• 1 had slammed a line drive to center field with one out in the eighth inning Saturday. The hit was the first off Sadowski, who was mal<ing his first start since the Pirates kayoed him in tliree innings on July 3. Sadowski was to give up three more hits in the frame while surrendering a 4-1 lead and the pitching chores to re­ liefer Billy O'Dell. When the Braves' came back with two runs in the ninth to win 6-5, the victory went to O'Dell, "This has to be the closest I've ever come to a no-hitter," Sadowski said. "I knew I had one going all along but I didn't pay any attention until about the fifth inning." "I'm just happy we won," Sadowski said. "It's one more game in the "W" column." Gene Oliver, the Braves' hitting star with three runs batted in, said he wasn't aware of the no-hitter until about the sixth inning when Manny Mota laid a bunt down the third baseline. The ball curved foul a few feet from the bag. "I was just concentrating on working Bob in and out because he had such good stuff," Oliver said. "Tiien I looked up at the scoreboard and there were no hits." The Pirates did have a run, however. They got it without benefit of a hit in the third imping. A hit batsman, a wild pitch, a sacrifice and a sacrifice fly turned the trick. 1962 inaugural. In all, Foyt has won 27 championship trial races, a record, and took down $220,238 in earnings last year alone. He is a four- time national champion. Ward, 44, of Speedway, Ind., has won 25 title races, including four over the one- mile paved Trenton track at various distances. Last year, he took home winnings of $82,741. GRAND BLANC, Mich.— (^)—Kathy Whitworth took the second round lead Saturday in the Yankee Women's Open Golf Tournament with a record-equalling 68 for a 36-hole total of 141. Miss Whitworth, a hazel- eyed 25-year-old pro from San Antonio, Texas, tied the tournament and course record held by defending Yankee Open champion Ruth Jessen. She cared an opening nine of 35, including two birdies and a bogey, then fired three consecutive birdies—on holes 13, 14 and 15—to finish with a 33 on the back nine. Carol Mann of Towson, Md., who was one of the first round leaders, fell to second place with a total of 143. POSTPONE QUALIFYING WATKINS GLEN, N. Y.— (ff) — Rain forced postponement Saturday of qualifying trials for starting positions in Sunday's 150-mile NASCAR Grand National Championship auto race. Dokka Whips Zampedro 10-9 for Publinx Title PITTSBURGH. Pa. —(^)- Franks' Contract Extended to '66 SAN FRANCISCO— (i^')— Manager Herman Franks signed a new contract as manager of the San Francisco Giants Saturday extending his tenure through the 1966 season. "We have had this in mind.wind Arne Dokka, 21-year-oId busi- n e s s and finance student from Studio City, Calif., crushed 24-year-old Leo Zam­ pedro of Warren, Ohio, 10 and 9, Saturday and won the Pub- inx Golf Championship by the biggest victory margin in its 40th year history. Dokka, a native of Norway who reached the semi-finals last year, was 6-up after the first 18 holes of the 36-hole match final over the parched par 36-35—71 North Park Golf Course. He won the 20th, 23d, 25th, 26th with pars and halved the 27th as the putting and iron play for Zampedro fell apart. Wins Three Holes Zampedro, husky 6-foot former football fullback from Colorado State, won only three holes in 27. He made a game try to come back in the afternoon, chopping against the pin to win the 19th hole with a birdie. But Dokka's steady play was too much. The Californian shot a one- under-par 70 in the morning to tie a competitive record for the course, stretched out from 6,518 to 6,781 yards for the tournament. Will Try National A brisk, 20-mile-an-hour came up in the after- for some time," said Horacejnoon, and there were a few Sloneham, president of the|sprinkles of rain. But Dokka Giants, "and we were pleased when Herman agreed to the extension. He has done a fine job for us this far, and I am sure all San Francisco fang^ agree. played cautiously, always short when he couldn't be on. Dokka, who was born in Oslo and came to this country after World War II, said he jwas setting his s^^hts on the Western Amateur championship later this month. "I'll give the National Amateur a try, too," he said. His victory earned him the James D. Standish Cup and an invitation to enter regional qualifying for the prestigious Amateur. Zampedro was making his first appearance in a major tournament. He finished far back last year in the Ohio State Publinx which like this event is open only to public course players who do not belong to a private club. Both players were cool and unemotional. Zampedro, , a Warren city fireman who is married and the father of one child, never changed expressions and merely shrugged when a penalty stroke was assessed against him on the 26th hole for moving his ball with his putter on a three- footer he needed for a par to halve the hole. Sinks Short Putt Dokka, who didn't say a word through the whole round except to officials of the sanctioning United States Golf Association, sank a short putt for a par but won the hole when the penalty stroke was assessed against Zampedro. The Ohioan said later that he addressed the ball the same way he addressed all putts, by jiggling his club. "I just moved it too much," he said. • Dokka played the afternoon round in even par, making him one under for the day. He hit 22 of 27 greens and chipped magnificently on the ones where he was sho^. teenager who was ignored in Davis Cup selections, and top - ranked Dennis Ralston scored semifinal victories Saturday in the National Clay Courts Tennis Championships at the River Forest Club. Richey, an 18-year-old who would rather take advice from his father than non-playing Davis Cup Capt. George MacCall, eliminated 19-year-old Mike Belkin in straight sets, 6-3, 6-4, 6-0. Ralston, the No. 1 seed, rallied from apparent defeat to score a five-set victory over Hamilton Richardson, 6-4, 7-9, 0-6, 8-6, 6-4. Meet for Title Richey and Ralston will meet for the championship today. Richey's sister, 22-year-old Nancy Richey, will go after her third straight clay courts championships today when she meets Julie Heldman of New York City. Miss Richey won her semifinal match from Stephanie Defina, Hollywood, Fla., 6-2, 6-2, and Miss Heldman was hard pressed in eliminating Rosemary Casals of San Francisco, 11-9, 7-5. Young Richey, expected to be the No. 2 member of the Davis Cup team which will play in the American Zone finals at the end of the month, was left off the six-man team selected by MacCall Friday. MacCall had objected to Ri-i chey's insistence that his father, George Richey, a Dallas tennis pro and teacher, watch the young star's training and preparation closely. Rushes Once Cliff, taking his father's advice in his match against Belkin, played back the entire match and rushed the net only once. The match turned into a baseline duel with Richey waiting for Belkin to make mistakes and then taking advantage of them. Ralston, who will be the 31- year-old Richardson's partner on the Davis. Cup doubles team, was down two sets to one and trailing 5-2 in the fourth set when he put on his spurt in the 88-degree heat. Capitalizing on double faults and other errors by Richardson, Ralston tied the fourth set 5-5, fell behind 6-5 and then won the next three games and the set to even the match. In the final set, Richardson took a 3-2 lead. But the heat and the grueling contest— which last three hours, 31 minutes took its tool, with Ralston's powerful service providing decisive. Clark Graebner and Marty Riessen of Evanston, 111., won a doubles finals berth with a 7-5, 7-5, triumph over Arthur Ashe Jr. and Tom Edlefson. Miss Richey and Carole Graebner of Beechwood, Ohio, won the women's doubles crown by defeating Miss Casals and Miss Heldman, 7-5, 6-4. In the other men's doubles semi-final, Richardson and Ralston defeated John Pickens of Tuscoloosa, Ala., and David Power of Fort Collins, Colo., 7-5, 6-4. Sunday, July 18, 1965 RACINE SUNDAY lULLETIN 3C Redbirds to Battle Wilmot in Finale BURLINGTON — The Racine Redbirds and the Wilmot Legion will meet in the championship game of the Southeastern District semipro baseball tournament tonight at Athletic Park in Burlington as the result of their victories in the semi-finals Saturday night. The Redbirds smashed out two three-run homers to pace their 9-1 victory over Irv's Buick of Racine in the opening game Saturday night, while Wilmot held Burlington Merchants to four hits to take a 2-0 shutout in the nightcap. Burlington and Irv's Buick will meet in the consolation game at 2 p.m. The championship game will begin at 7:30. Gary Ludvigson and John Hearn each smashed out three-run homers for the Redbirds to ice the victory. Dan Koenings, R e d b i r d pitcher, held Irv's to two hits, one a sixth inning homer by Fred Hassel. He struck out 11 and walked two. Brian Baillie was the loser. In the nightcap, Wilmot scored an unearned run in the fourth inning and a single run in the seventh as Burlington was held to four hits by Bru€e Hansen Shoots 67 Bruce Hansen fired a 3- under-par 67 at Johnson Park Saturday to lead Racine golfers who had a good day in near-perfect weather. Dick Meissner, who never before had broken 80 at Meadowbrook Country Club, came in with a 70, 1 under regulation there. Pro ' Leif Larson had a 69 at Johnson Park while Gary Goodsell and Nick Demos each matched par 72 at Racine Country Club. I ' In July Sweepstakes at; RCC, the winning team included LeRoy Jerstad 84-18-66, Marshall Thomas 90-23-67, Richard Thompson 94-26-68 and Richard Ruffo 85-16-69 for a 270 total. The second place team included Robert Ernst 89-14-75, Henry Brefka 76-8-68, Robert Gordon 80-1070, and Robert Ruston 76-9-67 for 280. In couples best ball at Meadowbrook, Mr. and Mrs. Ed Niesen had 28 while Mr. and Mrs. J. B. Anderson and Mr. and Mrs. George Verhaeghe each had 29. In the junior tournament at Meadowbrook, Tom Swan beat Stan Postorino, John Hilmer beat John Wilhelmsen, Craig Silver beat Dave Sesso, Fawns * * * Leave Them Alone Louis Is Loser by One Stroke CHICAGO —(JP)— Former world heavyweight boxing champion Joe Louis, despite a closing one-under-par 68, missed by one stroke a first- place tie Saturday for the Chicago Amateur Golf Championship. Louis, 51, shot 69-67-7068—274, two under par for the distance at the Jackson Park course. Two players, Bud Gunn and Bob Augustine, tied for first at 273, and Gunn won the title on the first hole of a sudden death playoff. Gary Scovel, Racine County conservation warden, says he has a problem. Three times within the past two weeks Scovel's office has been contacted by parties with similar stories. They've captured fawns, fairly numerous at this time of the year, and they want Scovel to give them a license. This, of course, cannot be done. Taking a fawn not only is illegal, subjecting violators to possible $200 fines, but it is inhuman, says Scovel. "People know they've done the wrong thing," Scovel said. "When they call me they figure they are off the hook. We haven't fined anybody yet, but we could." Scovel is required to seize the captured fawn and sell it to a deer farm. Fawns which have been tamed even for a day or two cannot be re- released in the wilds. Not infrequently a fawn separated from its mother will die. Bob Toppe beat Kim Dykstra, Tom Miller beat Jon Sesso. Steve Wadewitz, playing at RCC, didn't break 80—shooting an 81 — but he had unique card. Wadewitz fired 14 4s for the day, getting 11 in a row starting with the 8th hole. A parent-child day will be held at RCC starting at 2:30 p.m. today.
