Julius Boros drew strong support
to successfully defent his title.
A few votes also went to Ben
Hogan who consistently plays Co-
lonial's 7,122-yard course as if he
owns it. The Fort Worth battler
has won the tourney five times.
His lone tourney excursion this
year came at the Masters, where
he registered a one-under-par
total for 72 holes en route to a
tie for ninth.
Gary Player, the lithe South
African, heads a foreign delega-
tion among the best in the tour-
nament's 19-year history.
The visitors include Al Balding
and George Knudson of Canada;
Bob Charles of New Zealand;
Bruce Crampton, Bruce Devlin
and Kel Nagle of Australia; Juan
(Chi Chi) Rodriguez of Puerto
Rico and Ramon Sota of Spain.

By The Associated Press
FORT WORTH, Tex. - The
wheel of fortune spun toward Jack
Nicklaus and Arnold Palmer as
they prepared yesterday to renew
warfare in the Colonial National
Invitation Golf Tournament.
Rain has fallen intermittently
the last two days and the area was
placed under a tornado afert yes-
terday. But the long-range fore-
cast called for possible scattered
showers for the start of the four-
day event today, with conditions
improving daily.
A pre-tournament poll produced
few surprises. Nicklaus and Pal-
mer were picked to finish 1-2 in
that order in the field of 72 and

Los Angeles Open winner Paul
Harney is the lone 1964 titleholder
who will not compete for the
$14,000 first prize.
Perhaps the remarkable aspect
of this Colonial is the harmony,
that prevails between tournament
officials and the Professional Golf-
ers Association.
Spirited disputes had become.
somewhat of a tradition, but all
appeared well on the eve of the
tournament. Even terms of a tele-
vision contract with ABC met
with agreement from both sides.
Portions of play Saturday and
Sunday will be televised nationally.

NEW YORK-Dave Nicholson's
573-foot homer in the first game
of the Kansas City at Chicago
doubleheader last night ranks as
the second longest ever hit in the
major leagues, according to avail-
able records.
Babe Ruth's 600-footer at De-
troit in 1926 is ranked No. 1 and
Mickey Mantle's 565-foot one at
Washington on April 17, 1953 was
No. 2 until Nicholson's blast for
the White Sox in the fifth inning
at Comiskey Park.
LONDON - Dr. Roger Ban-
nister celebrated the 10th anni-
versary of his 3:59.4 mile-the
first to break the four-minute
barrier-wth champagne yesterday
and forecast a 3:45 mile will be
run more than a decade later.
Bannister, now 34 and an em-
inent specialist in nervous diseas-
es, dined -out at a post midnight:
party with two men who paced'
him to the world mark, Chris
Chataway and Chris Brasher.
Chataway now is a member of
Parliament and junior minister in
t h e conservative government.
Brasher's a prominent newsman
and television producer.
They meet every year on the
mile anniversary. This year they
made it something special and
took their wives along.
Bannister said he expects to see
the .mile record lowered to 3:45
.but added:
"It will not be in the next 10
years. It will come when runners
on the standard of Peter Snell
and Herb Elliott meet in an im-
portant race."
New Zealander Snell holds the
world record of 3:54.4. Elliott, of
Australia, hit 3:54.5 in August
1958, but retired from the track
without ever meeting Snell.
Bannister usually hedges when
asked his opinion of the ultimate
in mile records.

He once said, "I don't think
there is an ultimate. The incre-
ment by which the record is brok-
en will go on decreasing."
When pinned down to what may
be the. minimum, he said:
"Around 3:30. It will be getting
very difficult. This is the sort of
physiological limit with our bodies
made the way they are."
Physically Bannister seems little
changed from the historic evening
when .he tore up Oxford Univer-
sity's Ifley Road track in 3:59.4.
He now scales 168 pounds, only
eight pounds more than at his
peak fitness.
Since then the four-minute bar-
rier has been broken 127 times.
Britain, once rich in milers, now
hardly competes. The last British
runner to crash four minutes was
Dorek Ibbotson and that was
seven years ago.
HELSINKI - Brian Sternberg,
former world pole vault record-
holder, was awarded the, gold
medal'of Finland's Olympic com-
mittee during a television program
yesterday.
Sternberg, still in a wheelchair
after a serious accident last year,
received the medal from General
Ali Koskima, leader of the Fin-
nish delegation to the Tokyo
Olympics this fall.
Sternberg is the guest of the
state-owned Finnish Television Co.
