Bows in State
Golf Tourney
PORT HURON, Mich. July 12-
(I)-Ben Smith, who captained
the University of Michigan golf
team in 1943, today lost, 2-up, to
Jim Funston in one of the after-
noon quarter-final matches of the
Michigan Amateur Golf champ-
ionships at the Black River Coun-
try Club.
Funston, 26-year-old Michigan
State linksman, advanced to the
semi-finals along with two other
Detroiters-Ed Eevasti and Nick
Weslock-and Harold Brink, last
year's runner-up from Grand
Rapids.
Weslock Beats Malloy
Weslock shot a three-under-par
69 for a 2-up decision over Woody
Malloy, another ex-Wolverine
golfer. Malloy captured his
morning card, 2-up, at the ex-
pense of Forrest Groenleer of
Saginaw.
Funston took two of the first
a five holes from Smith and held a
1-up advantage when they turned
the ninth but fell into trap trou-
ble the next three holes in a row.
Funston 'Turns On Heat'
Smith was 1-up when they
halved the par 15th hole with
birdies but it was just the begin-
ning of Funston's red-hot finish.
The former Spartan golfer drop-
ped a 20-foot putt for a deuce on
the 16th to square the match, hit
the pin with his chip shot and
tapped in another birdie putt on
the 17th to go 1-up and then
won the 543-yard 18th hole with
another birdie.
Smith earned a quarter-final
match as a result of his triumph
over Dick Whiting, former Notre
Dame captain. The ex-Wolverine
star won, 1-up, when Whiting
missed a 30-inch putt on the 18th
green..

Hogan Teams
With Demaret
For Golf Lead
TOLEDO O., July 12-OP)- De-
fending champions Ben Hogan
and Jimmy Demaret suffered
their first defeat in five matches
today, losing one up to National
Open champion Lew Worsham
and Johnny Palmer, but they
clung to the lead for the top prize
of $3,000 in the Inverness best-
ball matches with a "plus 13"
score.
That gave them a five-point
edge over Ellsworth Vines, form-
er amateur and professional ten-
nis champion, and Clayton Heaf-
ner, the huge blonde from Char-
lotte, N. C., who surged to a six-
up victory over former National
Open kings Lawson Little and
Lloyd Mangrum.
With the final two matches in
the $10,000 best ball classic due
tomorrow, it looked like a fight
right down to the wire. Hogan-
Demaret are favored to repeat
since they meet two of the sec-
ond division twosomes while Vines
and Heafner must dispose of Ed
Furgol, the sensational Pontiac,
Mich., youth with the rigid with-
ered left arm, and his partner,
George Schoux of San Francisco,
who are in third place after play-
ing the tourney's most sensation-
al golf.
The Vines-Heafner duo has a
"plus 8" rating after winning four
matches and losing a four-down
decision to Demaret-Hogan, while
Furgol-Schoux have "plus 7" de-
spite a three-down defeat at the
hands of the leaders. Worsham-
Palmer are next with plus one,
having won three matches by a
single hole, and losing two by the
same margin.
Back of the leaders the stand-
ings as they go into Sunday's fin-
al matches was: Herman Barron-
Herman Keiser, minus 4; Sam
Snead-Cary Middlecoff minus 5,
Vic Ghezzi-Ed Oliver, minus 8,
and Mangrum-Little, who have
lost four of five matches, minus
12.

BID FOR OLYMPICS:
Soviet Athletes to Receive
Cold Medals Instead of Cash

By The Associated Press
Lefty Earl Johnson made his
1947 debut as a starting pitcher
a crackling success yesterday by
hurling the Boston Red Sox into
second place in the American
League with a 2-0, six-hit shut-
out over the Detroit Tigers.
Johnson, besides checking the
Detroit offensive, slapped out
three singles himself to drive in
one Boston run. Dom Dimaggio
lofted a homer into the upper
deck off Al Benton for Boston's
initial run in the first inning.
Sox Lead Tigers
After the first two innings, Ben-
ton matched Johnson all the way
until he was removed for a pinch
hitter in the eighth. The Red
Sox now lead the Tigers by slight-
ly less than a full game.
The Cleveland Indians defeat-
ed the Philadelphia Athletics 5-4,
in the second game of a double-
header after the A's took the
opener, 4-2. Ed Klieman scored
his first victory of the season in
the nightcap as Hank Edwards
clouted his sixth homer with one
aboard. Jesse Flores gained the
decision for the Athletics in the
first game.
Yanks Unveil Power
The rampaging New York Yan-
kees stretched their winning
streak to 12 games by humbling
the St. Louis Browns 12-2, and
8-5 in a twin bill at St. Louis. Joe
Dimaggio and Bill Johnson each
slammed a three-run homer in
the first game, and Tommy Hen-
rich clouted two round-trippers in
the second event. Rookie sensa-
tion, Frank Shea, started the first
game for the Yanks but left aft-
er the opening inning because of
a stiff arm. Charley Wensloff
came in to take the victory in the
relief role.
The Chicago White Sox regain-
ed sixth place in the American
League standings today by ending
a four game losing streak with
a 6-5 victory over the Washing-
ton Senators.
Eddie Lopat, the White Sox's
leading hurler, worked the route,
giving up ten hits, for his seventh
triumph against seven losses.
Rudy York batted home Chicago's
first run in the first inning. He
singled to open the fifth when the
Sox added two more markers. Tom
McBride led the Washington at-
tack with four straight singles for
a perfect day.

MOSCOW, July 12-(OP)-An
announcement by the Council of
Ministers that medals would be
awarded henceforth to Soviet ath-
letes who set national and inter-
national records appeared today
to have eliminated the last tech-
nical obstacle to Russian partici-
pation in next year's Olympic
games.
Since a government decree in
1945, Soviet record-breakers have
been awarded cash prizes rang-
ing from 5,000 to 250,000 rubles
(official exchange rate 5.3 to 31)
for their feats '
Specifications Stated
From now on; the All-Union
Committee on Physical Culture
and Sports Affairs will give gold
first class medals to those who
break All-Union records which
are better than world records and
athletes who win Soviet champ-
ionships. -
Those who establish All-Union
records which are not better than
world records will get gold and
silver second class medals. Second
place winners in U.S.S.R. champ-
ionships will receive silver badges
and third place winners will get
bronze badges.
Russia now is enjoying the
greatest sports activity in its his-
tory. More than 150 national
records were set last summer and

the number is expected to be al-
most doubled this year.
Millions participate in sports
in the U.S.S.R. and there appear
to be as many women athletes as
men, or perhaps more.
