SPRINGFIELD, N.J., June 6. - ('
- Blasting all open championshi:
records to bits in a heart-throbbin
finish, dapper little Tony Manerc
31-year old Italian-American pro
fessional from Elmsford, N.Y., sho
the greatest round of the tourna
ment today to snatch the America
open crown from "Lighthorse Harry
Cooper, the hard-luck man of gol
by a two-shot margin.
Four strokes back of Cooper, start
ing the final round, Manero went o
a rampage, ripping two strokes of
the Baltusrol course record with s
closing 67, one under par, finishin
four shots under the former Amer
ican record with a 72-hole total o
282, and making it a world mark b
bettering by a stroke the best prev
ious performanve made in a Britisl
open championship.
Koesis Leads Amateurs
Chuck Kocsis, captain and star o:
Michigan's Big Ten champions, wor
amateur honors leading such stars a
Omaha's Johnny Goodman, amater
winner of the 1933 open, and Jac
Munger, Dallas amateur ace.
. The Big Ten titleholder staged a
brilliant comeback on the second
nine to post a 73 for a 54-hole total
of 216. This' left him five strokes
behind the pacemaker, who at that
time was Cooper, and in a good po-
sition to make a defnite threat to
the leaders.
Koesis shot his first mediocre
round in the final eighteen, carding
a 77 which ruined any hopes he
might have held of threatening the
leaders, but his final score of 293
was two shots better than Goodman,
his nearest amateur rival.
Manero Wins $1,000
Manero's efforts in the tournament
netted him $1,000 while Cooper added
$750 to his purse after his surprising
defeat. They were getting ready to
pay off on Cooper until Tony cane
along to hand "Iighthorse Harry"
the most heartbreaking defeat of a
career studded with disappointments
in major competition. The Chicago
professional, playing the finest golf
of his career, turned in rounds of
71, 70, 70, and 73 for a total of 284
that was two shots under the former
record.
Tony's 215, at the 54-hole mark
left him not only four shots back
of Cooper, but two behind Victor
Ghezzi, who skyrocketed to an 81 on
his last 18, and one behind Denny
Shute, the former British Open
champion At this point he was only
one stroke ahead of Kocsis.
Puts On Stretch Drive
It was a good spot for a stretch
drive, and he lost no time putting it
on. despite the fact that Cooper start-
ed off with an eagle-three on the first
hole of his final round. At that
point Manero had five strokes to
make up and it took him exactly
13 holes to achieve the seemingly im-
possible.
Manero carded six birdies in hi
par-smashing final round and Coo-
per, despite a valiant attempt to off-
set his rival's rally, had to accept
the bitter defeat.
Third place went to the Bloomfield.
N.J., bomber, Clarence Clark, a co-
leader in the opening round, who
finished with a 74-71 yesterday for
a total of 187, good enough to have
won all but two of the tournaments
held over a forty-year period. The
veteran, MacDonald Smith of Glen-
dale, Calif., a competitor for more
than a quarter of a century, was in
fourth place one stroke behind Clark.
Ky Laffoon, Chicago, Wiffy Cox,
Washington, and Henry Picard, the
favorite from Hershey, Pa., were tied
for fifth, all scoring 289. Gene Sar-
azen carded a brilliant 33 on his out-
going final round, to keep scoring
pace with his companion, the new
champion. His 41 for the last nine
put him far out of the running and
he spent most of his time cheering
his fellow Italian on to victory.

Fischer Sets Record
On University Course
Carding six birdies and an eagle

Michigan golf team, yesterday
broke the course record at the
University Golf Course with a
brilliant 64.
Fischer was playing with Frank
Kugler, Bill Hanway, and R. W.
Muzzy; his caddie was George

Cincinnati star.

Cochrane's Return
To Duty Uncertain
WASHINGTON, June 6. - W) -
Manager Mickey delayed indefinitely
the date he will return to the Detroit
Tiger lineup after suffering a slight
heart palpitation before today's game
with the Washington Senators.
He said he felt improved when'
he arose this morning. Before the
game he jogged around the bases.
Then came the recurrence of the
heart trouble and retired to the
bench to rest. He remained in uni-
form, though, and directed his team-
mates from the first base coach's
box.

Football Is Question Mark
The Varsity football team for 1936
is a question mark. As Coach Harry
G. Kipke has repeatedly stated, the
team will be stronger than last year,
but an extremely tough schedule and
the fact that from five to eight sopho-
mores will most likely appear in the
starting lineup makes any sort of a
prediction difficult.
Capt. John Gee, John Townsend,
and Herm Fishman will be the nuc-
leus of this year's basketball team,
and with two promising freshmen in
Dan Smick and Dick Long plus a
number of likely reserves, the team
should be a good one. Coach Frank-
lin C. Cappon stated that he believed

[Michigan Win Big Ten Title Because-
The following averages were com piled by Fred Hurst De Lano.
INDIVIDUAL BATTING

Frank Aikens, "Skip" Etchells, Mor-
eau Hunt, and Harvey Patton, but
an excellent freshman squad led by
the versatile "Big Bill" Watson and
Roy Heath in the 220 should help
the team a great deal.
Of golf and tennis little can be said.,
The golf team will lose its two aces
Capt. Chuck Kocsis and Woody Mal-
loy by graduation. The success of.
the team will depend on the develop-
ment of the reserves and freshmen ofI
this year.
.Johnstone Sees Good Team
The return of Captain-elect Miller
Sherwood, Jarvis Dean, Jesse Flick,
and Neil Levenson and a squad of
eight promising freshmen netters,
encouraged Coach John Johnstone
enough for him to predict that the
Wolverines will be among the first
three in the Big Ten next year.
The hockey team shows a lot of
potential promise, the only loss being
Captain Larry David. Captain-elect
Vic Heyliger, Bob Simpson, Gib
James, John Fabello, Irving Shalek,
and Bert Smith, who was ineligible
the second semester last year, will
probably make up the first team.
Coach Cliff Keen expects a very
good wrestling team next season,
losing only Capt. Walter Heavenrich
by graduation. The veterans will
have a hard fight for their positions,
however, as a very promising fresh-
man squad will be eligible for com-
petition.

"They ought to take a picture of
Tony's feet," mused Turnesa. "They
won that battle for him. Take a look
at 'em. Not only arethey big and
strong, but they are the perfect un-
derpinnings, as important to success
in golf as the bottom shafts of a
skyscraper."

Buddy Hassett andB en Geraghty,

basketball teams in their senior years,
Buddy at Manhattan College and Ben
