BOTH SHOOT 71'S:

But Take Back Seat in Open

I

By The Associated Press
SAN FRANCISCO - Warren
Spahn, Milwaukee's crafty veter-
an, will face 16 - game winner
Whitey, Ford of the New York
Yankees today as both the Na-
tional and American Leagues turn
to left-handed pitching to start
the 30th annual All-Star baseball
game at Candlestick Park.
Spahn's choice by Danny Mur-
taugh of Pittsburgh was some-
what of a surprise, for the 40-
year-old winner of 296 games .has
been having trouble lately and his
season won-loss record is an ordi-
nary 8-11.
Ford's selection by Manager
Paul Richards of Baltimore was a
foregone conclusion long before
yesterday's official announcement.
The chunky blond is having a
sensational season, with a 16-2
record, and has won his last 10
starts.
The American League is favored
on the left-handed power of slug-
gers like Roger Maris and Mickey
Mantle of the Yanks and ,Norm
Cash of Detroit in a park where
the usual jet stream wind to right
favors left-handed batters.
Sellout Crowd
San Francisco's first All-Star,
game will draw a sellout crowd of
about 43,000 fans to the modern-
istic two-year-old park on the bay.
Gate receipts and television mon-
ey from this game and a second
game July 31 at Boston go into
the majors' central fund which
supports the player pension plan.
The game will be carried on
network (NBC) radio and televi-
sion. Game time is 1 p.m. (3 p.m.
EST).
Different Approaches
Richards and Murtaugh take
different approaches to the game.
The American League manager
says he has no intention of using
anybody except the eight starters
picked by the players, coaches
ZINDELL
OLDSMOBILE
Ann Arbor, NO 3-0507

and managers unless the game de-
mands players. The eight starters
must play at least three innings
unless injured.
No pitcher can go more than
three innings except in extra in-
ning games. But, of course, the
starter might be chased in the
first.
Asked if the idea of the game
hadn't been to show the All-Star
talent to the fans, Richard an-
swered, "That might have been
the theory in the past and it might
be next year. I always felt that
the theory of the game is to win.
Is there any other?"
Richards would not go beyond
Ford in his pitching plans.
"It will depend on how the

game progresses, starting with the
first hitter," he said.
Ford and Billy Pierce of Chi-
cago are the only southpaws on
the American League staff. Ford
worked Saturday when he won No.
16 over Boston. This will be his
sixth All-Star game including
starts in 1954 and 1960. His record
is 0-2.
Out To Win
Murtaugh also emphasized that
he is out to win, but said he would
make several switches as the
game progressed.
"We're sure as hell going to try
to win," said Murtaugh. "We all
have different ideas about this
game. The ideal plan would be to
win and also to let the people see
all the players.
"I know Eddie Mathews (Mil-
waukee third baseman) will play
only three innings. He has 14
stitches in his leg from a spike
wound but he wants to play. After
three innings, I'll bring in Ken
Boyer of St. Louis. We have a lot
of boys with recognized ability. No
matter what players I use, it
wouldn't weaken our team.
'Perfect Team'
"We have the perfect team for
this type of game, with speed,
great defense, power and pitching.
Maybe they have more power over
a season, but I think we have the
potential for one game."
Murtaugh said he picked Spahn
because he had plenty of rest. He
said Spahn, Sandy Koufax of Los
Angeles and Bob Purkey of Cin-
cinnati have been considered for
starters but Kouf ax was eliminat-
ed when he pitched Sunday. Fur-
key probably will be the second
pitcher, followed by Elroy Face of
Pittsburgh.
This will be Spahn's seventh
All-Star game and third start.
Richards never has seen the
park with its tricky wind cur-
rents but Murtaugh brings his
Pirates into town regularly.
"We do have wind conditions
here," Danny said. "But all-stars
should be able to adapt them-

IBIRKDALE, England (A'
American Arnold Palmer and
South African Gary Player scored
identical 71s, but they took a back
seat to a couple of comparative
unknowns yesterday in the first
qualifying round of the British
Open Golf Championship.
Bob Charles, a 25-year-old New
Zealand left-hander, and John
More, a 25-year-old Scot, each
broke the record of the 6,844-yard
Birkdale course with 6-under-par
66. The old record of 67 was set by
Britain's Syd Scott in the 1954
British Open at Birkdale.
Won't Count
But the qualifying scores of the
first two days won't count when
the field of more than 350 is pared
to 120 for the start of the 72-hole
championship proper tomorrow.
Fourteen Americans started.
Palmer, 29-year-old power hit-
ter from Latrobe, Pa., and Player,
25, winner of the U.S. Masters this
year and a former British Open
champion, still are the favorites
to win the title first contested 101
years ago.
Experts forecast that the title
race rests between these two men
-so different in manner but so
alike in dedication to the game-
who lead the money-winning list
on the American pro circuit.
Similar Par
Palmer and Player both toured
the adjoining Hillside course,
which has has 6,603-yardage and

a similar part to Birkdale's 36- ing Welsh pro, had 67s over the
36-72, in 37-34-71. reconstructed Hillside course, set-
Those who played Birkdale yes- ting records for that layout,

Dave Talbot, an unheralded winner Bobby Locke of South Af-
Briton, and Dave Thomas, a lead- rica with a 70.

TOUGH TO BEAT-That's what Whitey Ford of the New York-
Yankees has been this year as he carries a pace-setting 16-2 rec-
ord with him into the first All-Star game at San Francisco today.
Ford is slated to start for the American League squad.

selves. There is a jet stream to
right field if you get the ball
down the foul line. But I have
right-handed hitters like Willie
Mays and Orlando Cepeda of San
Francisco and Roberto Clemente
of Pittsburgh who can hit it over
the right-field fence. I don't see
why either club should be favor-
ed."

LONDN (P)-Rangy Paul Pender
of Brookline, Mass., was rated a
7-4 favorite last night to defeat
Terry Downes of London again in
their return 15-round bout for
the American's share of the world
middleweight championship to-
night.
Despite Pender's decisive, sev-
enth-round technical knockout of
the aggressive Cockney in Boston
last Jan. 14, promoter Harry Le-
vene was assured of a sellout
crowd of 12,000 at Wembley's In-
door Stadium.
Pender will be risking his piece
of the 160-pound division crown
for the fourth time and for the
first time out of Boston. The for-
mer fireman is recognized as
champion in New York, Massa-
chusetts and Europe.
Gene Fullmer, of West Jordan,
Utah, is considered champion by
the AmericansNational Boxing As-
sociation.
Guaranteed $84,000
For the return bout, Pender will
receive a guarantee of $84,000.
Downes will collect $28,000. But if
the British mauler scores an upset
his purse will be put in a New
York bank to guarantee Pender a
return fight in Boston within 90
days.

DETROIT 0?)-Jim Ferriell Jr.,
a 19-year-old University of Louis-
ville sophomore, scrambled out of
the rough seven times yesterday
and clipped five strokes off par
with a record-setting 65 to pace
the first qualifying round of the
36th National Amateur Public
Links Golf Championship.
Ferriell matched the tourna-
ment record by blistering up the
back nine at Detroit's Rackham
Golf Coursetin 30 strokes, tying
the nine-hole publinx record set
more than 20 years ago.
At the halfway point in the 36-
hole qualified to determine 64 sur-

vivors for match play, Ferriell held
a two-stroke lead over Gerald
Thomas, a former Northwestern
University golf team captain.
Defending champion Verne Cal-
lison, 42 - year - old Sacramento,
Calif., tavern owner, tumbled nine
strokes over par with a 79, four-
putting one green and three-put-
ting several others.
Callison will need a sensational
comeback to qualify for match
play that begins tomorrow. Joe
Dey Jr., executive director of the
United States Golf Association,
predicted it will take a 150 or less
to survive the cut.

On form, Fender figures to win
as easily as he did in Boston. He
floored Terry in the first round
and had him bleeding from multi-
ple cuts of the nose and eyebrows
when the referee halted the bloody
rout. Downes required 15 stitches,
12 on his split nose.
14 Straight
Pender has won 14 consecutive
fights over a 41/2-year span for a
39-5-2 record. Downes, a profes-
sional only five years, has a 27-7
record. He has been stopped five
times by cuts.
Six U.S. Marines will escort
Pender, a former leatherneck, into
the ring at fight time. Downes,
who also served with the U.S.
Marines and learned to box while
in the service, will be escorted into
the ring by a squad of British
paratroops from the Army camp
where he's been training.
"The Marines can escort Pender
in, but they'll be lifting him out of
the ring around the 12th round,"
cracked Tom Ryder, Downes'
trainer.
