1eveland Team
oins NBA Group
Pipers, with Former OSU Star,
To Compete in Eastern Division

NEW YORK ()-The. National
Basketball Association expanded)
to 10 teams yesterday by taking in
the rival American Basketball
League's richest franchise, ' the
Cleveland Pipers.
Maurice Podoloff, president of
the NBA, said this was done after
receiving wires from all ABL own-
ers "indicating agreement with'
granting the franchise and a sim-
ilar message from Abe Sapersteiri,
president of the ABL."
George Steinbrunner, president'
of the Pipers, refused to express
an opinion on what would happen
to the ABL, now reduced to six
teams, and in financial straits. His
ABL Folds
As Saints
Drop Out
CHICAGO (AP) - Withdrawal of
the San Francisco Saints from the
American Basketball League will
cause the circuit to suspend op-
_.erations for the 1962-63 season,
ABL counsel Allan Bloch stated
last night.
"George McCune (owner of the
Saints) informed us by telephone
of his withdrawal at the ABL
meeting last week," Bloch said.
"We were stunned with the news.
It would mean that Long Beach
(Calif.)-a potential new member
-would not have a team to play
against within a distance of 1,500
miles. It would mean a terrific
amount of transportation difficul-
ties with a Long Beach and Ha-
waii schedule.
"In my opinion, it would not be
feasible financially for the league
to operate under these conditions.
The Saints' withdrawal certainly
knocks out Long Beach and
Hawaii.
"Also it knocked out the Cleve-
land Pipers. The Pipers would
have stayed in the ABL if the
Saintsw had not withdrawn. The
Pipers went into the National Bas-
ketball Association only as a re-
sult of McCune's decision."
Bloch said the ABL could re-
sume in 1963-64 if conditions were
favorable. He did not elaborate on
what will happen to players under
ABL contract during a suspension.
In Pittsburgh, owner Lenny Lit-
man of the ABL's Pittsburgh Rens
said it is his understanding that
ABL players would become free
agents and could sign with NBA
teams.
Eight U.S.
Golf Stars
Make Open
TROON, Scotland (P)-Defend-
ing Champion Arnold Palmer
shrugged off a nagging back in-
jury yesterday and led eight Amer-
icans into the British Open Golf
Championship, to begin over the
tricky, windswept Old Troon
Course today.
Palmer, the U.S. Masters Cham-
pion from Latrobe, Pa., missed only
two greens in his score of 34-33-
67 over the qualifying course of
Lochgreen. That was 5-under-par.
Phil Rodgers, the 24-year-old
former Marine from La Jolla,
Calif., matched Palmer's 67 over
the 6,788-yard Lochgreen course
and ended the two qualifying
rounds as the top American.
Palmer, who had a 76 dver the
championship links of Troon on
Monday, finished with a qualify-
ing score of 76-67-143. Rodgers
had a qualifying score of one less
han Palmer. He finished with 76-
67-142.
other Americans setting off to-

day over Troon in a four round
fight to dethrone Palmer are:
Sam Snead of White Sulphur
Springs, West Va., 69-74-143;
Gene Littler, 1961 U.S. Open
Champion from San Diego, Calif.,
71-76-147; Don Essie, 23-year-old
former Public Links Champion
from Indianapolis, Ind., 75-72-
147; Jack Nicklaus, U.S. Open
Champion from Columbus, Ohio,
76-73-149; Paul Runyan, the 53-
year-old World Senior Golf Cham-
pion from La Jolla, Calif., 76-75-
151, and Jack Isaacs, Langley Air
Force Base, Va., 80-74-154.
Isaacs was the American who
sweated it out in the club house.
The last threesome came to the
home hole at Troon. If three of
them made 154 then out went
Isaacs and everybody else at 154.
A total of 119 will start shooot-
ing for real over Troon's par 36-
36-72 links today.

team won the ABL title last sea-
son.
Podoloff said the principal
stockholders of the Cleveland club
include Steinbrunner, George Mc-
Keon of San Francisco, and "sev-
eral owners of American Basket-
ball League teams, among whom
is Ken Kreuger of Kansas City."
No financial terms werevreveal-
ed, but it was rumored the Pipers
will pay the NBA a $300,000 fran-
chise fee, much of which would go
to the Cincinnati Royals, plus a
$100,000 performance bond.
The reason for the identification
of Cincinnati is that the, Royals
drew Jerry Lucas in the basketball
draft only to see the Ohio State
star sign with the Pipers. Objec-
tions by the Cincinnati Royals to
letting Lucas play anywhere in the
NBA except Cincinnati was a
stumbling block in closing the deal
with. Cleveland.
Lucas Will Play
"Jerry Lucas is agreeable to
playing in the NBA," said Stein-
brunner, "and we are working out
details now so he can continue his
education."
Lucas had been critical of the
demanding NBA schedule, but
Stenibrunner said "I think Jerry
realizes now that there is not much
difference between the 72 games
in the NBA and the 30 he would
have played in the ABL."
In Eastern Division
Cleveland will play in the East-
ern Division of the NBA along
with Boston, New York, Syracuse,
and Cincinnati. In the Western
Division are St. Louis, Detroit,
San Francisco, Los Angeles, and
Chicago.
Left in the ABL are Kansas
City, Chicago, Hawaii, New York,
San Francisco and Pittsburgh.
The NBA is the pioneer of big
league, professional basketball in
the United States. The ABL was
created last year by Abe Saper-
stein, famed promoter of the Har-
lem Globetrotters.

THE WINNING COMBINATION-Stan Musial (left), Maury Wills (center) and Roberto Clemente were the combination that supplied the National League All-Stars with their first two runs in yesterday's
3-1 victory over the American League. Musial, the St. Louis veteran, got a pinch single. Wills, the Los Angeles shortstop, ran for Musial and stole second base, getting in position to score on a single by
Pittsburgh's Dick Groat. Clemente, also of Pittsburgh, then singled. Groat scored the second and winning run on a ground out by Orlando Cepeda, also of San Francisco.

MUSIAL, WILLS, MAYS STAR:

National League Team

Wins All-Star Contest, 3-1

d

By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON - Stan Musial,
the 41-year-old grand old man of
the St. Louis Cardinals, showed
his National League mates how to
do it yesterday with a pinch single
that touched off a two-run inning
for a 3-1 victory over the Ameri-
can League.
President John F. Kennedy, part
of a record crowd of 45,480 at D.C.
Stadium for the 32nd All-Star
Baseball Game, applauded vigor-
ously when "Stan the Man" touch-
ed off the winning spurt in the
sixth inning with his 20th all-star
hit.
There was no score when Mu-
sial, appearing in his 22nd all-1

star game, popped out of the dug-
out to bat for San Francisco's
Juan Marichal, who turned out to
be the winning pitcher.
Single to Right
Camilio Pascual, the Minnesota
curve ball artist, snaked over two
called strikes before Musial lash-
ed out from his familiar crouch
and stroked a single to right field.
Fred Hutchinson, the Cincinna-
ti manager who bossed the Na-
tionals, called for Maury Wills of
the Los Angeles Dodgers to run
for Musial. The crowd gave Musial
an ovation. ,
Wills, stealer of 46 bases in the
regular season, dashed for second

as Dick Groat of Pittsburgh, an
accomplished hit and run man,
swung and missed. His bat flew
toward third base and Wills stole
second without a throw from Min-
nesota's Earl Battey. Groat then
singled Wills home with a smash
into center field.
Another Run
Roberto Clemente of Pittsburgh
followed with his third hit, a sin-
gle, and both men advanced after
Willie Mays of San Francisco sent
Roger Maris of New York deep to
the fence in center for his long
fly ball. Groat scampered home
with the second run while Rich
Collins of Minnesota was throwing

in the inside and won the three-
year-old filly championship of

Three Lead Publinks
BUFFALO, N.Y.-A Memphis,
Tenn., salesman, a college student
from Hayward, Calif., and an 18-
year-old Georgian'who figurative-
ly cut his teeth on a golf club,
shared medalist honors among
early finishers yesterday in the
37th annual U.S. Public Links
Championships.
Bert Greene, a slender blond
from Eastman, Ga., fired a 3-over-
par 74 on Sheridan Park's 6,697-
yard course in suburban Tona-
wanda for a 36-hole total of 148.
Joining him were John B. Wade
Jr. of Memphis, and 19-year-old
John Joseph from California. Both
added 73's to first round 75's.
The 64 leaders in the 36-hole
medal qualifier advance to match
play starting today. The 36-hole
finals will be played Saturday for
the title now held by Dick Sikes
of Wichita, Kan.

The 22-year-old Sikes, toting his
own bag as usual, qualified with a
75 yesterday for a total of 150.
Among the day's better rounds
was a one-under-par 70 by Billy
Tindall, 18-year-old former U.S.
Junior Champion from Seattle.
Despite a disastrous 81 in Mon-
day's wind and cold, he survived
the cut-off handily with a 151 to-
tal.
Norville Takes Lead
ST. LOUIS-Richard S. Nor-
ville of Oklahoma City had a
three-over-par 74 yesterday for a
144 total and a good chance to
take medalist honors in the qual-
ifying for the 59th Annual Trans-
Mississippi Golf Tournament at
Old Warson Country Club.
Norville was two strokes ahead
of George Hixon, another Okla-
homa City golfer, with about half
of the field of 150 having com-
pleted their 36 holes.
The low 63 players in the two-
day qualifying trials will join de-
fending champion Herb Durham
of Dallas in match play starting
today. After the first round, there
will be double rounds on both
Thursday and Friday with the 36-
hole finals on Saturday.

Miss Creed in Front
SOUTH BEND, Ind.-Clifford
Ann Creed of Alexandria, La., led
the way into the second round of
the 62nd Women's Western Ama-

teur Golf Championship yesterday
with an easy 5-4 win over Mrs.
Ruth White Miller of Whittier,
Calif.
Miss Creed had a four-under-
par 35 on the first nine to go five
holes ahead of her opponent. She
lost only one hole in the match,
conceding the 11th after being
trapped twice. She had five birdies
and two bogies. Her fairway play
was so good her longest putt was
only 15 feet from the cup.
Nefertiti Wins Race
NEWPORT, R.I. - Nefertiti de-
feated Easterner by just 10 sec-
onds yesterday in the trial series
to determine the United States
sloop that will defend the Ameri-
ca's Cup.

The victory was the seventh
against one defeat for the Boston
Yacht Club sloop. She leads in the
current series which started July
2 and is scheduled to run through
Saturday.
Easterner, which had soundly
beaten Weatherly in sloppy going
Monday, almost made it two up-
sets in a row. She led by 28 sec-
onds rounding the second mark
of the 20-mile triangular course.
But Easterner couldn't quite hold
it on the final nine mile leg from
the America's Cup buoy to the fin-
ish line one mile southwest of
Brenton Reef lightship.
Nefertiti overhauled Easterner
100 yards from the finish line,
then tacked and crossed the line
about two boat lengths ahead.

out Orlando Cepeda of San Fran-
cisco.
Mays was tremendous in the
field although he failed to get a
hit. Twice he went deep to drag
down long blasts by Maris, the 61-
home run king of last year. When
the Americans threatened again
in the last of the ninth with two
on and two out, it was Mays fading
to the fence in deep right center
for a game-ending catch on Chi-
cago's Luis Aparicio.
Great Wills Speed
Wills gave the American League
fans another taste of his famed
speed in the eighth when the Na-
tionals added their third run. The
little shortstop dropped a Texas
league single into left off Cleve-
land's Dick Donovan. When Jim
Davenport of the San Francisco
Giants singled to left, Wills tore
into second base. Rocky Colavito
of Detroit, playing left field, threw
to second base only to see Wills
headed for third.
But Wills, the only man in re-
cent years to become a real threat
to Ty Cobb's base stealing records,
was not finished yet. When Felipe
Alou of San Francisco fouled out
to Los Angeles' Leon Wagner,
along the right field line, Wills
tagged up and scored in a cloud
of dust. He slid home while Cleve-
land's John Romano grabbed for
Wagner's peg.
AL Leads Series
The American League, which
now leads this series by the ever-
narrowing margin of 16-15-1, scor-
ed its only. run in the sixth. How-
ever, it might have been two or
even three if Mays hadn't made
the leaping catch on Maris' long
sacrifice fly.
Rollins opened the American
sixth with a bloop single to left
and Billy Moran of the Los An-
geles Angels followed with a long
single to left center. Quick field-
ing by Mays prevented the ball
from going between the outfield-
ers.
Maris got good wood on a 1-1
pitch and the ball sailed through
the bright sunshine into deepest
center with Mays in pursuit. At
the last second Willie made a leap-
ing glove-handed grab near the
wire screen. Rollins tagged up and
scored without a play.
Pascual Defeated
Pascual was treated the tough-
est of the four pitchers used by
Manager Ralph Houk of the Yan-

kees and the American League.
The Cuban right-hander gave up
four hits and two runs in three
innings, and suffered his first all-
star defeat.
While the Nationals were rack-
ing up the American pitchers for
eight hits, the National's foursome
of Don Drysdale of Los Angeles,
winner Marichal, Bob Purkey of
Cincinnati and Bob Shaw of Mil-
waukee were holding the' Ameri-
cans to four hits.
Nobody hit a homer. In fact
there were only two extra base
hits. Luis Aparicio of the Chicago
White Sox tripled in the third
with nobody out but died there
when Drysdale blew down Lee
Thomas of Los Angeles, Rollins
and Moran.
Bunning Tremendous
Jim Bunning of Detroit did a
tremendous job of pitching that,
unfortuately, will be overlooked
because his team lost. He pitched
three shutout innings, allowing
only one hit-a double by Cle-
mente in the first. The Tigers'
fire-baller now has pitched eight
consecutive scoreless innings in
all-star play, allowing only one
hit in the eight innings spread
over yesterday's game and the two
1961 contests.
Each manager used 19 of his 25
players, following the plan they
had announced before the game.

There were some questions asked
when Houk lifted Maris after he
had batted in the sixth.
"I wanted everybody to play,"
explained Houk. "After all, this is
an all-star game. They were pick-
ed from their clubs and I think
they should have the opportunity
to play. I figured six innings was
enough for Maris."
Mickey Mantle, the Yankee star
who is hobbled by a knee injury,
played only four innings and left
the game after he was walked in
the fourth.
IL All-Stars
Play orioles
ROCHESTER, N.Y. (P) - The
International League All-Stars go
after their fourth straight victory
over Major League opposition to-
night when th7ey tangle with the
Baltimore Orioles in the IL's Sev-
enth Annual All-Star Game.
A sellout crowd of more than
15,000 is expected.
Righthander Robin Roberts, one
of baseball's veteran pitchers, is
expected to start for the American
League Orioles. He will probably
be opposed by Columbus lefthand-
er Don Rowe or, Toronto right-
hander Carl Green.
