Hold Snead
As Favorite
TORONTO (P) - Sam Snead
popped up with the touring golf
pros yesterday, and as usual, was
installed as favorite to win the
$27,000 Canadian Open starting
today.- This is old stuff to the
The 143-member field includes
six former Canadian Open cham-
pions, including Snead who has

Diegel of Washington in the
The 48-year-old Snead toured
the suburban St. George's layout,
site of the 72-hole tournament, in
leisurely fashion. He took the
three-foot "gimme" putts along
with the others who wanted a
close inspection of the 158-bunker
course before firing starts in
earnest this morning.
Despite the presence of such
stars as defending champion Doug
Ford of Paradise, Fla., slim Dow
Finsterwald of Tequesta, Fla., and
sweet - swinging Ken Venturi of
Palo Alta, Calif., links fans still
like Snead, the pappy of them all
who was counting his money as a
tournament pro when many of
them were toddlers.
The lowest score reported to-
day was a six-under-par 66 by
Doug Sanders, 27-year-old Miami
Beach pro who won the Open in
1956 at Montreal with a 273 score.
Other previous Open winners
to show were Wes Ellis, Jr., of
Aldercress, N.J., who won top
money in 1958; power-hitting
George Bayer of San Gabriel,
Calif., 1957 Open champion, and
veteran Jim Ferrier of San Fran-

NEW YORK-College football
fans who have yet to buy tickets
for a big game this season may as
well wait three more weeks.
That game, whatever one it
may be, might be televised but
the ticket buyers won't find out
about it until Aug. 1.
That's the date the televising
network and the colleges involved
in the televised gamed-have agreed
upon for the announcement.
Previously, the NCAA-controlled
television schedule has been an-
nounced around May 1, or some
three months before the. date set
for the 1960 TV schedule release.
Why the holdup this year?
Time To Sell Tickets
The obvious answer is more
time for ticket sales.
The Associated Press has
learned that the ' schedule has
been completed for sometime and'
is resting in a desk drawer just
waiting for the go-ahead. As us-
ual, it includes the Army-Navy
game, and 1959 national cham-
pion Syracuse and most of the
other big powers are on it. The
TV season opens with. Georgia-
Alabama at Birmingham Sept. 17.
In fact the 1960-61 television,
program, formulated by the TV
committee of the National Col-
legiate Athletic Association, stip-
ulates: ". . . selection of specific
games shall be made in 1960 with-
in four weeks after the day on
which the national television
rights are awarded.. .
Announcement that ABC was
awarded the TV rights was made
on March 15-almost four months
When asked why the delay in
the announcement of the sched-
ule, Asa Bushnell, commissioner
of the Eastern College Athletic

Conference and a TV committee
member, cited another section of
the same paragraph which reads:
"The carrying network and/or
the sponsor (s) shall make ar-
rangements for the telecasting of
the games directly with the mem-
ber colleges competing in them,
and public announcement of each'

game involved shall be made at.
a time agreed upon by the net-
work and/or sponsor (s) with the
participating colleges."
Bushnell added that the date
agreed is Aug. 1,
But, Mr. Bushnell, wasn't the
late date set so advance ticket
sales on TV games wouldn't,lag
once the announcement was
Network Decision
"Some schools prefer an early
announcement, others a late one,"
Bushnell replied, "and the TV
committee didn't feel it should
set the date. It was therefore left
up to the network and the schools.
ABC has arranged the date with
the unanimous consent of the

MacKay Leads Players
Picked for Cup Team

NEW YORK (f)-A trio of play-
ers averaging only 21 years of age
was named yesterday by U.S. Davis
Cup officials for the American
zone first round matches with
Canada at Quebec City on July
Named with the youngsters is
Bart Bartzen, 33-year-old south-
paw from Dallas who also is as-
sistant captain of the team. He
may play but the major portion of
the competition against the Cana-
dians is expected to be handled
by Barry MacKay, 25, of Dayton,
Ohio, and two 19 year olds from
St. Louis, Earl Buchholz and
Charles Mckinley.
The selections were announced
by David Freed of Salt Lake City,
new captain of the U.S. team. In
accepting the captaincy, Freed
said he would concentrate on or-
ganizational matters while Bart-
zen would be concerned with tu-
toring and conditioning the play-
Freed chose the players from
the squad previously picked by

lection committee of which James

For High Jumping Advice


607 East Liberty
Next to Michigan Theatre



BOSTON (IP)-Clearing a high-
jump bar at seven feet or more is
commonplace now for John
Thomas, Boston University leaper;
getting a telephone call from Mos-
cow was much more exciting, es-
pecially when he was asked how to
improve Russian high jumping.
It gave John a chance to assure
a writer for a Moscow sports paper
that the pulled muscle he suffered
last weekend in California was not
serious. It also gave him a chance
to suggest to Moscow more Rus-
sian-U.S. track meets as a means,
of easing the cold war.
Sports relations between the
two great countries, John sug-
gested, have been good.
It was clearly confusion over
Ace Fraser
Has Troubles
BASTAD, Sweden (A-Wimb-
ledon champion Neale Fraser of
Australia had trouble advancing
in the International Tennis Tour-
nament here yesterday.
Fraser, this' year's Wimbledon
champion, won a narrow decision
over 44-year-old Swedish veteran
Torsten Johansson. The Swede,j
who is a doubles specialist and'
still on the Swedish Davis Cup
team as substitute, fought dog-
gedly but the Aussie ace finally
won 4-6, 7-5, 6-4, 6-4, and went
to the quarter finals.
The other lefthanded Austral-
fan Wimbledon finalist, red-
headed Rod Laver, won the first
two but lost the third and fourth
sets against Sweden's young Staf-
fan Stockenberg when their match
was suspended because of dark-
ness. The score was then 6-3, 6-4,
4-6, 1-6.
The other stars had less trouble.
Luis Ayala of Chile, semi-finalist
in Wimbledon, lost the first set
to American Hugh Stewart of San
Francisco but won 3-6, 6-3, 6-1,
Ramanathan Krishnan of India
easily beat Swedish Borger Folke
6-2, 6-2, 7-5.
In men's doubles Hugh Stewart
and Chuck McKinley of St. Louis
advanced to the third round over
the Swedish team of T. Hallberg

what the term "pulled muscle"
meant that caused the call from
"Soviet-Sport," a three times
weekly paper,
John picked up the phone yes-
terday, assured an operator that
he was John Thomas, and then
there was a man speaking in Rus-
sian-accented English asking how
serious was John's injury.
Thomas had set his new 7 feet,
334 inch record at Stanford and it
was decided to set the bar for a
try for 7 feet, 4, or higher.
That was when he strained a
muscle high in one leg. He assured
the Moscow caller that it was only
a soreness that would go away
after a week's rest.
Then, after some personal ques-
tions, the Moscow caller asked-
did John know any Russian jump-
ers. John said he did; he has seen
one in a Russian-United States
meet in Philadelphia.
"Do you have an suggestion to
help them improve their jump-
ing?" the caller asked.
The Boston youth said, "no." He
explained this was because he was
not familiar with the Russians'
"Do you have any statement for
Russian athletes?" asked his call-
er, and John replied that any suc-
cess he has achieved must be
attributed to a lot of practice, and
good coaching.
