catcher with a recent flair for

death at sundown Thursday in a
flight over Chesapeake Bay.
A widespread search for his
light plane turned up one clue-a
seat cushion which Coast Guard
officials said Gastall's wife identi-
fied as being from his plane. The
cushion was picked up by a Coast
Guard cutter searching for wreck-
age of the plane in the upper bay.
The 23-year-old Massachusetts
athlete, a three-letter man at Bos-

Baltimore Orioles in June, 1955,
for a reported bonus of $40,000.
Six other major league clubs tried
to sign him on the basis of his

four years at Boston.

small airport on the outskirts of
the city. He landed at Easton, Md.,
about 40 miles to the southeast on

Also returning to action were

Junior Golfer Gunderson
Reaches USGA Finals

Subscribe to The Michigan Daily


INDIANAPOLIS (R)-Tall, straw-
berry blonde Joanne Gunderson of
Kirkland, Wash., the first junior
golf champion ever to reach the
final of a national senior champ-
ionship, and stubby Marlene Stew-
art, perennial Canadian champion,
will meet today in the 36-hole
final of the 56th USGA Women's
Amateur golf tournament.
Miss Gunderson, a 17-year-old
high school senior, conquered Mrs.
Ann Casey Johnstone of Mason
City, Iowa, 1 up, after seeing a
three-hole lead evaporate on the
back nine,
Miss Stewart, 22, a former Brit-
ish women's champion, four time
Canadian titleholder and present
U. S. Women's intercollegiate
champion, eliminated snub-nosed
Anne Quast of Everett, Wash., 4
and 3.
Youngest Champ
If Joanne wins Saturday, she'll
be the youngest champion in 60
years. Beatrice Hoyt was three
months younger than Joanne is
now when she won the women's
title in 1896.

women's golf and under pressure
she is a great putter. That com-
bination was just a bit too much
for the Qust girl. Anne won the
first hole, lost the second and
fourth and never got even again.
Miss Gunderson jumped to a 3-
up lead after four holes and then
had the fight of her short career
to win. Mrs. Johnstone, a steady
imperturbable 34--year-old who
had a short fling at pro golf caught
up at the 14th hole and din't yield
until the 18th, where she took a
bogie six and Joanne holed a five-
foot putt for a birdie.
Carried to Last Green
It was the first time in six
matches that Miss Gunderson has
been carried to the last green. She
chipped sensationally and needed
only 12 putts as she toured the
front nine in 35 strokes, one under
par. But she three-putted to lose
the 10th hole. She hit into a.pond
and took a double bogey 7 on the
13th. And when Mrs. Johnstone
sank a 15-foot birdie putt on the
14th the match was square.
Miss Gunderson won the 16th
and lost the 17th and finally pull-
ed it out on the last hole with a
birdie after her opponent found all
kinds of trouble.
The spectacled Miss Stewart,
who one was a caddy at her Font-
hill, Ont., home, was unbelievably
steady about the greens. Miss
Qust wasn't and that was the dif-
