Eagles, Lions Clash At Little Rock Detroit Favored In Test Of Pro football Teams Gomt Ftahired As DM! Ntwten Scott And Dook Walker Pro football--a wide open gjm* pluyM by AU-AmericanF--coihfet bi'ck' to Arkaniai for a one-night stand' Saturday when th* Philadelphia Eagles and the Detroit Lioni meet in War Memorial Stadium, starting at 8 p.m. · This, will be the only game qf the- year between th'e Eagles and the Lions unless both earn spots It, the Naitnonl League title playoff. Appropriately enough, considering the site of .the tilt, ring!eaders of both the Eagles and the. Lions are former Southwest Conference grid stars. The one-two punch of. the Detroit club consists of Bobby ' Layne, the great quarterback and forward passer from'- the tJrilver- sity of Texas, and the incomparable Doak Walker, S. M. U., who is one of Layne's favorite pass targets and a sensational run- ntr and kicker to boot. Another of · Layne's receivers is .end Pat Summtrall, who captained the Arkansas · Razorbacks last. year and kicked the field goal .beat Texas. that _ - ^ . much the same with the .Eagles. Their' signal caller, aerial .-artist, and punter is Adrian Burk, ;the 'ex-Baylor star. And one of -Philadelphia's most dangerous boll ·'carriers, receivers 'and punt "re- 'fcrners is Clyde Scott, the Smack- ·syer'-Kid who led Arkansas into '.two.bowl games a few years back. ; With the veteran powerhouse .Steve Van Buren on the injured list'again, Scott will.have to as- same a greater share of the bail lugging burden. These stars, however, are only a part of the show. All of the blayeri were standouts in college. .Moat ot them were All-American. Ahd many, have been named to th* all-pro teams.

I 1 ?, 17.57 Seattle - (.ip) - The Men's National Amateur Golf Championship, the ranks stripped of its last two champions, swung into the second round of match play Tuesday with the remaining challengers crowding into the spotlight. Belted to the sidelines in the day's two most starting upsets were the defending champion, Billy Maxwell from Odessa, Texas, and the 1850 kingpin of the nation's amateurs, Sam Urzetta of Rochester, N. Y. Dusk was settling over the Seattle Country Club's green acres when the familiar "unknown," Ira D. Gruber, a fine hitting, calm young man from Pottstown, Pa., disposed of Maxwell on the 21st hole. Earlier In the day, UrzetU, whose 39-hole victory over Frank Stranahan at Minneapolis in 1950 was the longest overtime match in the tournament's history, fell before Marion Hiskty, 2)-year-old riayer from Twin frails, Idaho.

Flntd f 1M In addition, Leo was fined $100 arid ordered/to stay away from the press box; radio booth or the vicinity of the Giant bench in Chicago and St. Louis. In a suspension earlier this year--a three-day chastisement--Durocher sat in the press box and was reported to have directed his club with hand signals to his coaches. The incident that led to the suspension occurred in the ninth inning of Sunday's first garni of a doublfrh»ader in New York. Bos- tori won the game, 7-3. Rabbet Dirt on Ball When the Giants were changing pitchers ir. the ninth and Hal Gregg was heading for the mound, Durocher rubbed some dirt on the ball and tossed it to the reliever. Dpnatelli, working at second base, asked to insppect the ball. Instead, Durocher flipped it to Al Barlick, ;he plate umpire. Words flared' between Durochcr and Dohatelli. Suddenly Donateli's right hand went up in a wide sweep, indicat- ng that Leo was out of the game. Then Leo blew sky-high. It was only by the restraining actions of Charlie Grimm, Braves' manager, and the other- umpires that Du- rpcher was kept from taking a \\?$\ round Dyes. i coming exm-muiy IIIM*UHIK, mm, j punch at Donfltelli.
