Mexico rescheduled the McKin-
ley - Reyes match for Tuesday,
but Davis cup team captain David
Freed defaulted rather than keep
the players here another day.
The final result was the closest
ever between the two nations.
McKinley was leading Reyes 2-1

game, when.the rains came.
Mackay h a d an admittedly
tough job defeating Llamas, a
veteran of 14 years in Interna-
tional tennis.
"I though he had me late in
the match," Mackay said. "The
guy's good-one of the best. His
play on the court is amazing. I
think I'm lucky."
Up and Down
Llamas, an up and down player,
started listlessly and dropped the
first two sets. Famous for retriev-
ing almost impossible shots, he
didn't seem to care, let many an
easy return go by without trying.
to recover it.
Mackay, on the other hand, had
his serve under far better control
than in Saturday's opening match
with Rafael Osuna, which he lost
after double faulting 21 times. He
held it to 15 today.
Mackay aced Llamas t w e l v e
times in the first two sets, double
faulted only five times. He won
four love games, without Llamas
scoring a point.
Caught Fire
But Llamas caught fire, broke
Mackay's serve in the fourth game
to take a 3-1 lead, broke it again
in the sixth and coasted to an
easy 6-1 win.
In the fourth-set Mackay took
an easy love game on his first
serve. But in the third game he
double faulted on game point and
Llamas had the advantage.
It was short lived as Mackay
then broke Llamas' serve in the
fourth, a game which was the
longest of the day and saw the
.10d change hands eight times.
Mackay became rattled when
the crowd booed a decision which
had given him a point and the
faulted twice in the fifth but
won on two aces.
see saw
It was a see-saw match which
went on for 22 games, Mackay
taking Mario's serve in the four-
teenth, eighteenthand twenty -
second games, and Llamas break-
ing Mackay in the thirteenth.
Freed said after the match that
'we just squeezed through."
"We expected Mexico to be
tough, and they were. They al-
most took the doubles Sunday, and
Mackay ha4 to extend himself to
win over Mario yesterday."
Buchholz, a surprise substitution
for Bernard Bartzen of Dallas in
the doubles, saved the day for the
United States in opening day's
play by defeating Llamas.
H hurt his leg in that match,
and he probably would not have
played yesterday.
As it turned out, it wasn't neces-
sary, and McKinley was substi-.
tuted against Reyes, another sub-
With the outcome no longer in
doubt, Reyes was given a chance
to show what he could do-and
then got rained out. Nevertheless,
he is given credit for a Davis Cup
victory-by default.

Luke Appling of the Tigers went
to the Indians and the Tigers got
Joyner (Jo Jo) White in return
from the Indians.
The Appling-White switch was
planned last week when the teams
traded managers-Jimmie Dykes
going to Cleveland and Joe Gor-
don taking over Detroit. It didn't
come off but President Bill De-
Witt of the Tigers planned to talk
with General Manager Frank
Lane of the Indians yesterday and'
make the arrangement for yester-
day or today.
Appling, who played shortstop
for Dykes for many seasons when
Jimmie was managing the Chica-

The Reds twice had come from
behind to tie the score, the last,
time after Willie Kirkland had hit
a homer in the seventh to put
the Giants ahead at 3-2.
Jim Brosnan, pitching only the
last two innings, received credit
for the victory after young Jim

appearance, had gone seven inn-

All Stars To Face Colts~ihPsigSrnt

CHICAGO W)-The flat pass
and forward pass undoubtedly
will be the main weapons the Col-
lege All Stars carry into battle
against the National Football
League champion Baltimore Colts
Friday night in Soldier Field.
The 27th consecutive All Star
game will be televised and broad-
cast by ABC beginning at 9 p.m.
The graduated collegians, coached
for the third straight year by Otto
Graham, have been installed 18-
point underdogs.
Against the Detroit Lions in
1958, the passes of Rice's King
#ill and Michigan State's Jim
Ninowski to halfback speedsters
Bob Mitchell of Illinois and Jim
Pace of Michigan led the All
Stars to a 35-19 victory.
Five Passers
Graham has three fine trigger-
men for his aerial show this time
-Don Meredith, Southern Metho-
dist; George Izo, Notre Dame,
and Pete Hall, Marquette.
I ams=m m * am 'I

They have some exceptional
targets. At end are Carrol Dale,
Virginia Tech; Monty Stickles,
Notre Dame; High McInnis, Mis-
sissippi Southern and Washington
State's Gail Cogdill and Don El-
End coach Pete Pihos is espec-
cially high on Dale and Cogdill.
"Both have good hands, speed
and fine movement," he said. "I
don't see why they can't break
loose in the Cold secondary."
Shifty Backs
Some observers say that Gra-
ham has four halfbacks who could
measure ip to Mitchell and Pace,
with the speed and shiftiness to be
dangerous with fiat passes. They
are Prentice Gautt of Oklahoma,
Ed Kovac,'Cincinnati, Dick Bass,
College of Pacific, and Walter
Beach of Central Michigan. All
are adept pass catchers.
Trying to check the passing of
the Colt's Johnny Unitas to Ray
Berry, Jim Mutscheller and Lenny
Moore will be the toughest Job the
All Stars face. After all, even the
Colt's 'pro opponents couldn'tj do
