The Porkers, fresh from a pair of wins over Wlnona, Minn., State Teachers College this week, v/ere gager to extend their winning streak it .conditions permitted. Slated for mound duty today were Charles Brown, ,who turned in a good job against the Oklahoma Aggies in his first outing, Lamar HcHan, who has seen duty as a right fielder only this season, and Billy Blagg, who made a brief appearance against the Cowpokes of Stillwater. Hog coach Bill Ferrell inspected the field this morning and declared it as almost too wet for play. However, he declined to call the pair of games off until the Buena Vista coach could look at the field later in the day. If the lames are played the first of the two seven-inning affairs will start at 1:30.

WHfti MLL THeY Keep THEIR PKOMISH. ? May Dps Ante For Tarn Meet To $120,000 Chicago-(/P)-J,oIf's sugar daddy, George S. May, has boosted the total purse for bis Tarn O'Shanter tournaments this summer to $120,000. For the last dozen years, May has^held the distinction of staging the "world's richest golf meets. So the only records he has to break are his own. Last year His jamboree had a modest prize list of $77,600 and he did quite well in attracting the game's greatest stars and hordes of spectators to watch them. Why keep Tipping the ante? What is May trying to prove? "The more prize money we put up the btigger crowds we will draw," May explained. "This ratio has been figured out and proved by our efficiency experts. There is a direct parallel." May said it's worth $120,000 as an advertisement medium for his business engineering company. "If we lost $25,000 or so it's still a good investment--and if we break even we are overjoyed," he added. "We aren't -giving out any figures on how we've done in the past." The winner of the men's professional "world championship" phase of the Tarn extravaganza August 7-10 will pocket $25,000. This is by far the biggest payoff in golf history and is twice as much as Ben Hogan collected for taking the "world" crown last year. The ruby is bften rated as the most valuable of all gem stones.

"Think I'll be ready for another fight in three weeks," said the Bronx bull who wants to fight once a month. No opponent has been named. LaMotta, fighting In hU "lucky city" of Detroit for the 20th time, was the same old shuffler, and slugger.

(NEA) FADE IN MASTERS A TIPOFF Sarazen Feels Hop's Reign As Kingpin Of Golf May Be Waning New Yprk-(/P)-Gene Sarazen's super-senEitivc ears heard something snap in the rncent Masters Golf Tournament at Augusta, Ga. What was it? .It may have been Ben Hogan's reign as the kingpin of American golf, the chunky squire from Germantown, NV Y., said "today. It | may have been ..the nerve-jarring bugaboo Hogan long has held over Sam Snead. Whatever it was, Sarazen came away from the picturesque azalea country predicting Snead would crack his ancient jinx and win the National · Open championship at Dallas in June. That last round 79 in the Masters made Hofian look mighty human," Sarazen, one of the sport's great all-time champions, said. "In Sam's eyes, at least, it may have unmasked Ben as the superhuman robot. "I think it could changn Sncari's entire outlook, He probably no longer will be worrying about what the little mnn is doing when he's out on the course trying for the Open. H could make a big difference." won the Mcsters last wook end w i t h -a _72-W61e score of 286, highest in the iournament's history. Hog«jh-faded to a 79 on the last day for. a score of 293 and a 1ic for seventh place. "The Open lyill bo the big test for Hngan," finrnzcn added. "If Ben misses this one, too, and as badly HS he did the Masters; then it may mean that the unseen blow has struck him. "You never know when It hits-this golfing ghost--that sooner or later strikes down all the champions. When it comes it means a golfer is over his peak and the rest of the time the road, is all downhill." CLEANING UP AFTER THE BATTLE iiw? MEMMU Of THI 233RD TANK COMPANY go to work on one ol their vehicles after shooting up · Communist bunker In Korea That's Sgt Charles C. Moore, of Baldwin Park, Calif., atop the shoulders ol one of big buddleg, CpL Ray S. Greef, of El Monte, Calif. (International) Don't Miss GRAND OPENING TAYLOB TIRE CO. Highway 71 North FREE SOFT DRINKS FOR ALL ALL THIS WEEK 5.A (Br The AsewUtetf fres.) Eddie (Austerity P r o g r a m ) Sawyer, the Philadelphia Phillies scholarly manager, had a brand new problem on his mind today, along with the recurrence of an old one. Remember Steve Rldzilc, the rookie who hurled tho no-hlittr against the St. Louis Cardinals the hist time out. It turned cut t h a t he didn't have any Indian sign on the Red Birds, who pro* ceedcd to knock him out of the box in the sixth Inning of yesterday's game, which the went on to win, 8-6. nitl/,ik had been somewhat of H surprise to Sawyer, Inasmuch as the rookie compiled only a 5-11 record with Baltimore last year. Sawyer doesn't intend to abandon Steve, though, although he has his finders crossed that the no-hitter wasn't a fluke. Then, while he was mulling over the shellacking Rldzik took, Ssw- j yer brought in his one-time relief ace, Jim Konstanty. Two years iiyo. when Konstanty got in a hall game, he usually v/as the last pitcher in the Phillies' part of the line score, he was so effective. Well, the agin« Jim managed to fan Del Rice, but was slapped for successive doubles by Gene Mauch and Cloyd Boyer, neither of whom Is regarded as exactly a fence buster. Even with his strong starting hurlers, Sawyer was hoping that Konstanty would come back to his 1960 form when he won 16 games and compiled 2.0B earned run average, Last year lie "won just lour with an ERA of 4.03. The curds even won the "B" game part of a double-header, whipping itfe Phils, 3-2, in a five- inning; affair called by darkness. But the Cleveland. Indians certainly have a hoodoo on the New York Giants. The Tribe) slapped down the lyew Yorkers for the llth time in 13 meetings, 2-1, on only three hits. Ironically, the Giants got nine off the combined offerings of Bob Chakles and Lefty Kerrigan. In New York, the Giants got fairly encouraging news from Monte Irvin, who returned there last night for treatment of a fractured ankle. . Asked If h* expected to play again this year, Monte replied: "Sure, in two or three months." Then pointing to his toes and wiggling them under the white sock at the end of his cast, he said: "Look, I can wiggle my toes now." The veteran Ken Raffeniberger turned in a smooth performance yesterday for the Cincinnati Reds, although he didn't get credit for the Rcdlegs 1 3-2 triumph over the Washington Senators. He went seven innings, but left tht game with the count tied at 2-alL Nllei Jordan who relieved him, got credit for the victory. All other major league clubs played minor league teams. Williams To Pliy Pro Football For Chicago Chicago -(/Pi- The professional football Chicago Bean have signed Fred Williams, 22-year-old tackle from the University of Arcansas. The 6-4, 250-pound Williams, of Jttle Rock, is the Arkansas leavywclght boxing and wrestling champion. LRJC To Grant No More Athletic Scholarships Little Rock-Mi-No more athletic scholarships will be granted by Little Rock Junior College. Dr. ranville D. Davis, president of the school, said yesterday that athletics would be de-emphasized in line with North Central Association policy. Bentonville Meat Concern Changes Hands Bentonville · (Special) - Sherman Robblns announced t h i s morning that he has sold K and R Foods Company, a wholesale neat house, to Randall H. Craln of Albuquerque, N. M. Grain, who has several years experience in Lhc wholesale meat business, has assumed management. During the 1890s there was a bicycle craze In the United States in spite of the fact that the machines cost $100 to $150, a very large sum in those days. UNION IUS DEPOT 143 N. Collm Phono II Bock To Baseball Sgt. Curt Simmons, star 'piiefiiV fn'r (He Philadelphia" Phillies, Is greeted by his wife, Dorothy, as he arrived from Germany. He was- sent io Camp Kilmer, N. J , for discharge and is expected to join tho Phils this week. Robinson Sharp In Drills For Graziano Fight Middleweight Champ D'scusses Retiring, Maybe .Next Summer Pompton Lakes, N. J.-(/P)-Doos Rocky Graziano still hit as hard as ever, or has some of the power gone out ol his famed right hand wallop? "Man, I don't aim to find out," aid Sugar Roy Robinson. "I'm going to try and get the first punch In. "He always could punch with his right," said the sleek Harlem- Ite, "and I'm going to watch out. Of course, we've both slowed down but you gotta watch them punchers." Then the middleweight champion, who defends his crown against the New York slugger In Chicago next Wednesday, went out and showed come of the fastest hands we've seen In a long time. He punched faster than we've seen him hit since thnt'last flurry that stopped Randy Turpin In the 10th round at the Folo Grounds list September. ' Against sparmates AI Mobley and Vern Lester he fought only In spurts. When the television mtti turned on their cameras, he lashed out. As coon a tho cameras stopped whirring, he eased off. He erased his right like a streak and shot over come short left hooks In the old Robinson manner. He was accurate when he wanted to be. There wasn't the' slightest resemblance to the rusty swinger who missed so badly against Bobo Olson In San Francisco last month. "Man, I sure missed out there," said Robinson. "I misled him by at least three feet at times. 1 couldn't have missed any worse unless he jumped out of the ring. That long layoff after the Turpln fight was too much." "If he looks as bad against Gni/.lnno," interjected manager George Oalnfurd, "as he dirt . against Olson, I'm gonna make^j him quit." Hobinsun, busy taping his hands, · : noddc-d. "I'm much better now than I was for Olson," he said. "Of ' course, that's not much to compare .with." · How soon before he quits? "Sooner than ,T lot of people think," he replied. After the European trip he plans ·· next summer? "Maybe," he said. ·. Jnjoy i JtpmUtli, low-nit pfotcctioa -- ft*, : ,i{rricsy with Hardware -, 'vMslsjiissj,?
