While the Men's Amateur draws a far larger gallery than the small Women's Amateur turnouts, it's not of the proportions of a professional tournament. biennial affair, alternating between the United States and Britain. And, there's this to consider: more and more, fewer and fewer clubs want to turn over their courses for one week for a tournament, no matter what the tournament. Club membership rosters are so high that the courses are crammed on the weekends and since the season is short, the members want to make the most of it As one club member said recently: "What do I need the pros on my course for to tell me it's a good course I know it's a good course." THAT'S NOT the feeling at Tarn, however. The Orchard Lake Rd. course has undergone a $300,000 remodeling program that has given it practically a brand new clubhouse and there have been several minor changes in the course. "It's championship caliber right now," said Warren Orlick Tarn pro and urer of the National PGA. "All we'd have to do is let the rough grow and narrow the fairways." Orlick said five other clubs, Including one from Atlanta and one from Kansas City, are bidding for the 1970 event. "We could place the PGA for the next seven years but we don't want to work that far ahead," he said. Tam had the 1959 PGA all set but at the last minute ran into opposition at the club and the tournament was moved to Minneapolis. Glenna Collett won at Oakland Hills in 1929, the second in a string of three straight championships. She won it five times in all and was runnerup three times. Louise Suggs won the 1947 Amateur at Franklin Hills. THE MEN'S Amateur, unlike the Women's, is far from set and there's not much cause for optimism. Joe Dey, executive director of the USGA, heard so much favorable comment during the Open in San Francisco in June on Country Club that he sent out a feeler to see if the posh Grosse Pointe Farms club would be receptive. The pros played a sectional qualifier for the Open at Country Club and, in a rare display for the tourists, to a man saluted it. The Amateur has been played twice with it," said Lyle E. Frohberg, Birmingham president. "We put it before the board and the membership and everyone was overwhelmingly in favor of holding It," Froh-berg said. "It's an opportunity to see the finest amateur golfers in the country and I understand from Mrs. Lovell that performance in the tournament will have a great deal to do with the selection of the Curtis Cup team." The 1968 Curtis Cap matches American women amateurs against the British amateurs will be played in Ireland and making the U.S. team Is the goal of Detroiter Joyce Kazmierski who will be the hometown favorite in the Amateur. The Women's Amateur has been played played twice before in Michigan. BY JACK BERRY Big time golf is coming back to Detroit. The Free Press learned the 1968 U.S. Women's Amateur will be played at Birmingham Country Club, the United Slates Golf Association has hinted broadly it would be most pleased to see th Country Club of Detroit host the 1968 Men's Amateur and Tarn O'Shanter is bidding for. the 1970 National PGA. A leader of the revival is Mrs. Frank Lovell of Birmingham who, with her husband, Dr. Frank Lovell, has done so much for the Junior District Golf Association. BIRMINGHAM'S members never have been overwhelmingly in favor of national tournaments but this is supposed to be a tournament that's a lot of fun and not too much work connected THE MEN'S Amateur isn't what it used to be. It deserted match play for medal play, meaning a full field each day and meaning television and a clutter of electronic gear. The Walker Cup would be much easier to sell America's men amateurs against the British amateurs but the Walker Cup likely wouldn't be available until 1969, maybe 1973.

The whole affair was hard to swallow for Hank Aguirre. "That guy knocked in more runs in one day than I have in my illustrious big league career," Henry growled. WILSON SHUT OUT the Sox on five hits in Detroit last week. He shaved one off the hit total Saturday and the Red Sox had to resort to the squeeze play to get their lone run across. This irritated Wilson. "Tony Conigliaro was at bat and they were four runs down," he said." A long ball puts them back in the game. So he lays down a bunt. "That's no way to play the game and that's what I told Tony." The Tiger infield reeled off four double plays behind Wilson to make the going easier. The big righthander raised his record to 13-9 for the year, and 8-4 since he came to Detroit. BY GEORGE CANTOR Fret Press Sports Wrltor BOSTON It's really too bad that Earl Wilson spent so much of his career pitching for the Red Sox. He does so much better pitching against them. Wilson made it two victories in a row over his former mates Saturday and kicked in a grand slam home run and five runs batted in. The rest of the Tigers were in a hitting mood as well, so Detroit rolled up a 13-1 walkaway. "It would have been nice to shut them out again," Earl Wilson loves that old gang of his Owners, DEC End Hot Purse Dispute i a-ag'K 'saaiwwiiaBiaiSiiiwiBa the gross purse are paid to breeders of winning horses foaled in Michigan, whether they run in homebred or open competition. For example, the Michigan-bred winner of a $2,500 purse nets his breeder $250. It is from the state fund that breeders' awards have been paid to Mathew (Mike) Rubino, a reputed Mafia "big man." In recent years Rubino has bred and raised thoroughbred race horses at his Double D. Farm near Algonac. Bridge said that Rubino is not a member of his organization and never had applied for membership. Until Friday's unexpected settlement of the purse dispute there had been rumors of disgruntled Michigan breeders, unhappy with the drawn-out argument, might set up Turn to Page 4D, Column 1 we'll be running for $6,000 a week more in purse money." EARLIER THIS SEASON, Michigan breds had raced for $14,000 to $15,000 in purses weekly. Over the entire racing season Bridge indicated that between $175,000 to $200,000 more would be available for purses in homebred races. Michigan's thoroughbred breeding program already ranks as one of the most lucrative in the country. Under provisions of the Michigan Racing Act the state sets aside four percent of its revenue from thoroughbred racing for breeders' awards and purse supplements. In 1965 this amounted to about $500,000. The tracks contributed another $300,000 from the regular purse fund. Awards amounting to 10 percent of BY AL COFFMAN In a surprise settlement to their hot purse dispute, officials of the Michigan Thoroughbred Breeders and Owners Association and the Detroit Race Course Friday agreed on a program which may be worth million a year to owners and breeders of Michigan-bred race horses. Only scant details of the agreement were available, but MTBOA president W. O. Bridge said that it was "a terrific improvement over the old program." Although a settlement still has to be reached with the Hazel Park Race Course, Bridge indicated that the DRC agreement most likely would set the pattern. "We'll be running eight races a week for homebreds," Bridge said. "Previously we had. only six. From now on In his last four starts he has given up a total of five runs. "I'D RATHER TALK about the grandslam," Wilson said. "A low inside fast ball, first one I ever hit in the majors. .1 could take a few. more of these." A harried Frank Skaff preferred to talk about the pitching, though. "A complete game Is just what the doctor ordered for this club," he said. "I had to use six pitchers last night and we have that doubleheader coming up on Sunday. "The complete game gives our bullpen some rest. Of course, you could say it hasn't been doing so well even when it gets some rest. But you have to figure things will improve." THERE IS something about Fenway Park that simply brings out the beast in the Tigers. They have rolled up a staggering total of 48 runs in their last four games here. There was enough to go around for everyone Saturday as the club amassed 15 hits. Wilson and Norm Cash had three apiece, while Dick Mc-Auliffe, Don Wert and Al Kaline each had two. Only Willie Horton was shut out, which ended his hitting streak at nine games. Wert continued his long ball assault with a bases-loaded double, making four doubles and two homers in the last four games. "I've finally got my timing back," he explained. "It took me the best part of six weeks to do it, but it's there again, just like it was before I got sick." The two hits raised his average to .267. JIM NORTHRUP sent the Tigers away with his 12th homer of the year in the second, a shot over bullpen into the bleachers, about 420 feet. Jose Santiago, the Red Sox' leading winner, couldn't get by the third. It was the third time this year the Tigers' belted him out in the early innings. Four straight nits took him out in the third, with a two-run single by Jerry Lumpe and a double by Kaline doing most of the damage. Rollie Sheldon then held the Tigers in check for a while and the Red Sox made Turn to Page 2D, Column 3 Orioles Sting Nats, 5 to 2 FP Titles To A dray, Redford Free Press Photos by DICK TRIPP HEADS OR TAILS, it was a dusty way on the sandlots. Harry Kendrick's head-first dive went for naught (above) as he was tagged out by Mt. Pleasant's Dan Sponseller to nip an attempted double steal. But Kendrick's Redford Township team still won the game, 2-1. Bruce Patterson (below) used a more conventional slide, but the Trucker runner really didn't need it Adray catcher John Reynolds booted the ball and Patterson scored easily on the error.
