Doctoring Your Golf BY DR. CARY MIDDLECOFF f COMPLAINT: Wild putting. DIAGNOSIS: Improper stance. TREATMENT: Note my stance for a straight putt and the position of the ball. It is played just inside the left heel I prrfer to stand with both feet forming a right angle with the line to the hole and both feet about square to the desired putting line. The toes of both feet are at equal distance from the intended line. Try this easy, comfortable stance and you will find yourself putting straighter, truer and with more control.

Although he missed the 1951 season with the Lions, Box will not be complete stranger to football when he rejoins the Lions. He played with the Camp Pendleton Marine team last fall and was named to the all-service team. BOX IS currently enrolled in Baylor University, where he is completing work on his law degree. Prior to going into service, Box played quarterback, halfback and end with the Lions. He was a DiocKinir DacK, Dut moved 10 rigm half when the Lions installed the T formation. After nearly being cut from the team on three occasions, Box caught Bo McMillin's eye as a pass catcher when he galloped to two touchdowns against the Bears in 1949. The following year, Box was moved to end, where End Coach George Wilson taught him the finer points of end play. How well he learned those lessons was shown in the statistics of the 1950 season. BOX WAS third in passes received, grabbing 50, and second in yards gained, 1,009. He also was second in touchdown passes received when he grabbed 11 for the season. In order to give him all the opportunity necessary to get bark into that form. Coach Buddy Parker Is having Box - report to ramp a week before the regulars are scheduled to start work. Box will work with the rookies starting July 21 and will have quarterback Bobby Layne and pigskin at him.

Tag Bubba for 5 Runs in First Cubs Beat Braves, 9-3, to Gain 4 th in Row Free Press Wire Serriee The temperature was 98 degrees in Cincinnati Saturday, but the Brooklyn Dodgers were even hotter. The Dodgers clubbed Bubba Church for five runs in the first inning, and went on to hammer out a 13-hit 11-3 triumph over the Reds. 'Jarl Furillo doubled to score three runs in the first-inning spree, and slammed a two-run homer in the seventh. HANK SATJER continued his belting as he led the Chicago Cubs to their fourth straight victory longest winning streak in two seasons by a 9-3 score over Boston. Sauer got his 13th homer and 51st and 52nd RBIs. Warren Hacker was the winner in his first start for the Cubs. He previously owned a 2-1 record from 10 relief roles. Max Surkont, Bravps loser, tossed a pitch at Sauer's head in the fourth. This brought growls from Sauer and a lecture from Plate Umpire Jocko Conlon. Sauer then hit the next pitch into the left field bleachers. After beating the Pittsburgh Pirates nine straight times, the New York Giants' Jim Hearn needed a four-run rally in the sixth to make it 10 in a row. Davey Williams' sixth homer provided the edge in a 7-5 decision. BROOKLYN AB II O A Morfan.3 5 0 14 Reese.s 4 'i 1 S Bridget,.

A AMATEUR SCENE Lorenzo to A fellow barely reaches the age when he has to shave every day before he realizes that he's getting old. So it is that Lorenzo Wright, who's just 25, is about ready to call it quits in track and field. Lorenzo, muscular Detroit school teacher, has been working hard the last eight months ' trying to regain the form and spark which earned him a spot on the 1948 Olympic team. SOMETHING seems to be missing. "I'm going to give it one more try," the former Wayne University sprinter and broad jumper said. "I'll enter the Canadian Belays next week, and if I don't show enough improvement there, I'm going to forget all about my comeback." Perhaps the most Important FAVORED IN Can Snead Flub BY MARSHALL DANN Will Sam Snead mess up another National Open bid? One of the greatest golfers the game ever has known, Snead will move onto his annual hot spot Thursday. When he tees off in the 1952 Open at North-wood Club in Dallas, he will be making his 11th try for the crown. But he will be looking for his first victory. 1 HOBBLIN' GOBLINS - - - - ISP FICfeT TWO BOUND WITH A BtCCtW TtN BLEW... LOST ON tfcT HOUt OF PLAYOFF... MISSU 30" PUTT. EIGHT HOLS VICTORY 40 Pilots in Sprint Car Races Sprint car racing returns to Detroit Sunday at the Fair Grounds. A field of more than 40 Central States Racing Association pilots will attempt to qualify for the eight-race card starting at 11 a. m. The first race is slated for 2:30 p. m. Included in the field is Tom Cherry, recent winner of the Little 500 at Anderson, Ind., and Sid Bufkin, last year's CSRA champion. SHORTY FITZGERALD, of New Lexington, O., who won last week's sprint card at South Bend, Ind., is in the field. He will drive a six-cylinder Ford owned by Hoy Stevens. Iggy Ratona, hard top favorite at Motor City Speedway, also is entered. Virtually every type of engine is used as power plants in the Indianapolis Type chassis of the sprint cars. Most popular is the Ranger aircraft power plant, but Hissos and Offys also will be in the field. THE FIRST three cars to finish in the three sprint races, plus 11 more in the semi-final 15-lap race, will make up the field for the 25- In heat events, ears will line up In inverted order fastest cars last. In the feature, the fastest heat winner will qualify for the pole position. In addition to the feature and semifinals, there will be a 10-lap Australian Pursuit race. A minimum purse of $4,000 is guaranteed for the feature. Wrestle Royal for Fairview An eight-man wrestle royal will open the mat show at Fair-view Gardens Monday night, with four two-man matches to follow. Participants will be Bert Ruby, Jan Gotch, "The Ghost," Johnny King, Frankie demons, Jack Harmon, Stan Holleck and Steve Zold. Give It Just One More Try difference between the Olympic star of four years ago and the school teacher of today is speed. Lorenzo doesn't have it anymore, and he admits it. "I've given up any idea of making the Olympic team as a sprinter," he said. "My only hope is in the broad jump." But you need speed to be a good broad jumper, too, and maybe that's what has been holding Wright back. AS LATE as Wednesday, in the Olympic Regional Trials at Ypsilanti, Lorenzo failed to show much improvement. His best jump was a 23-foot, three-inch effort, which was good for only a second place. Wright got a bit of new hope out of the meet, though. It felt good," he aid. "You ran tell when you're hittlng OPEN BUT . . . SNEAD HAS won every major golf title and every top honor golfdom possesses except "The Big One." Sam .hasn't given up though. This week a national magazine will carry his story entitled "I Can Still Win the Open."

Biggest puzzler for the boys who like to wager a bob or two on this sort of thing is why cagey Jakie acquiesced to getting back into the ring with Murphy. BEST EVIDENCE that LaMotta is going in over his head would be the way Murphy demolished the Bronx Bull in seven heats last June. Yet, Jake must go down in the books as one of the shrewdest of ring businessmen in recent years. No one ever has accused the ex- middleweight king of not knowing what he is doing. Early unofficial odds favor Murphy at 7 to 5. Everything would indicate that the rough Irishman can win his second leg on the LaMotta trophy with ease. Murphy has a two-year advantage in age, 29 to Jake's 31. He will be f ig-hting at a near-normal weight 175 pounds; Jake will it. I was hitting it, even though I didn't get the distance." The "aging" Detroiter has set a broad-jump minimum which he figures he must hit in the Canadian Relays if he is to continue his comeback. "I'll have to get to 24 feet," he said. "If I don't, then that's it." When he qualified for the Olympics in 1948, Wright was passing the 25-foot mark consistently. SIX MONTHS ago, David L. Holmes, track coach at Wayne University, scheduled Johnny Kline to go to the ""West Coast for this month's NCAA meet believing .he would make the final Olympic Trials. Holmes had staked his hopes on Kline in the high jump, where the lanky junior had been This One, Too? off a lot of gremlins perched on his shoulders. They form a colorful group, assembled during the past decade. Each represents a famous muff. If an award ever was given for finding ways to LOSE a tournament, Snead would be the automatic winner. WHEN A MAN has won as often as Snead, you can't call him a poor clutch player. He - - -By Dick Mayer HAS WON ABOUT EVEW TITLE IN GOLF -EXCEPT ITS AKraT PWZeD-THC NATIONAL OfN. but. xa&apy can SAy HE HASNT COMB CLOSef probably hit no more than 168, if that. FIGURING IT from Jake's angle, LaMotta has everything to! gain and everything to lose. Another loss of the same nature to Murphy and Jake might as well change professions. He's out of the middleweight picture and if he can't beat Murphy he'll never get further into the light-heavy scene. A LaMotta victory, however, would send Jake soaring like a pogo-stick on a three-day binge. From Murphy's viewpoint, the Olympia fight should provide a good pay day and, facing the facts, Irish Bob must eliminate Jake sooner or later if he is to get another crack at the 175-pound crown. There is another rumor around that LaMotta is a good bet every time he gets into the ring henceforth until the time he fights for the light-heavy title. By George Puscas hitting regularly at six-feet, six inches. Kline since has lost his touch as a high jumper. But Holmes still figures to send him to the Coast now as an entry in the hop-step-jump. Kline hit 46 feet, four inches one of the season's top performances in the Ypsilanti meet. TENNIS Hamtramck will stage its 10th annual doubles tournament Sunday with a field of 32 duets, dominated by collegiate stars. In the field are Stan Drobec and Tom Beltoh, of Michigan State, recently crowned Big Ten champions. Bob Dickson, of the University of Michigan, who won the Hamtramck title with Bill Mi-kulich last year, will team this time with Andy Paton, an ex-Wolverine. r2M is the National PGA and Masters champion, and has included the British Open and World's Championship among his 69 major tournament triumphs. But when it comes to the top prestige tourney, the Open, Snead has just plain folded. He has been guilty of incredible collapses and frustrating failures. The first was in 1939 at Philadelphia Spring Mill. That was the time Snead, needing only a par-5 on the final hole to win, hashed for a horrible eight. THE NEXT year at Cleveland Canterbury, Sam shot 67 to lead the first round, but staggered home with an 81 the last round to lose his chance. So it has gone every time. Back at Canterbury in 1946, he again led the first day but faded. In 1947 at St. Louis he missed a 30 't -inch putt on the 18th green to lose a playoff for the title to Lew Worsham. At Los Angeles in 1948 he set a record 69-69 the first two days, but skidded back on Saturday's 36-hole windup. In 1949, at Chicago Medinah, he three-putted the 71st hole and finished a stroke behind Champion Cary Middlecoff. ONE OF Snead's greatest years was 1950. He tapped the till for $35,000, highest prize winnings in history; was first in 11 of 26 tournaments, , and averaged 69.23 strokes for the entire season. But at Merion he flopped in the Open. Finally there was the 1951 championship at Oakland Hills. Snead sparkled in practice, left the post as favorite, and opened with a 71 to grab the lead. But he sank to a 78 the second -round and eventually fell to 12th place. Add them all up and you'll find Snead has been SIX times the leader some stage of the event but never when the firing ceased. Going into the Open this week, Snead is the closest to a form favorite, and that's even considering the sentimental strength of Defending Champion Ben Hogan. This spring Sam has won the Masters, the Greenbrier Open and the Palm Beach Round Robin. Penalty shots cost him both the Greensboro and Jacksonville Opens. He's playing at a sharp peak. There isn't a golfer you can pick ahead of him. But those gremlins! Pairings for Mich igan Golfers Chuck Kocsis, Michigan's star amateur, will be paired with Defending Champion Ben Hogan for the first two rounds of the National Open starting Thursday in Dallas.
