Saturday crowd of 33,461.

down with only five hits in the
curtain raiser for his eighth vic-
tory. Robin Roberts was almost
as good a workman in the night-
cap, yielding eight hits in breezing
to his 10th win.
The Cubs didn't tally on Rob-
erts until the eighth when Gene
Mauch and Hal Jeffcoat singled
and Phil Cavarretta doubled to
give him a four-for-seven day in
his return to first base.

first inning of the nightcap and
then routed Johnny Schmitz with
a four-run outburst in the fifth.

with a boot on Richie Ashburn.

Open Play
ST. PAUL, Minn. - (k) - Sam
Snead caught and passed the lead-
ers in the third round of the
Western Open Golf Tournament
yesterday, firing a seven-under-
par 65 in today's round for a 54-
hole total of 201.
That figure put the White Sul-
phur Springs, W. Va., pro one
stroke ahead of Chick Harbert of
Detroit, who wound up today with
a 68, and a 202 total for 54 holes.

lead at the start of today's play,

hole when his drive went into a
trap, and turned in a 69 for 203
and third place.
Snead lost no time in starting
his drive to overtake the leaders.
He cut one stroke off par on the
first hole, taking a three, and
from then on never went over
regulation figures. He was one
under on four more holes of
the first nine to make the turn
with a 31, five under par.

stroked the ball and it headed for
the cup, but missed by inches as
the crowd groaned.
Harbert, like Mangrum, ran into
some trouble in today's round and
it kept him from tying with Snead
for the top. Harbert's trouble was
with his putter on the ninth hole,
where he missed a two-foot putt.
Mangrums toughhluck ondthe
16th hole came when his drive
nestled next to Jimmy Demaret's
ball. Mangrum had no choice but
to waste a stroke getting his ball
back on the fairway.

EVANSTON, Ill. - (P) - Head
Coach Bud Wilkinson of Oklaho-
ma herded his all-star gridders
through their first rugged scrim-
mage session yesterday to step up
the practice tempo for the annual
All-Star Classic in Soldier Field
Aug. 12.
The Collegians drilled on the
split-T formation they will em-
ploy in the big game against the
Philadelphia Eagles, National
Football League Champions.
Oklahoma the Big Seven title last
season and a Sugar Bowl triumph
in New Orleans.
In the scrimmage, several
midwestern college all-stars saw
Pete Elliot, flashy Wolverine
quarterback last season, had a

workout with Indiana's one-man
power house, George Talliaferro.
AT FULLBACK, the All-Stars
have speed for plunging, for fakes
from the split T formation and
fast, accurate blocking.
Frank Tripuka, who guided No-
tre Dame to an undefeated season
last fall, is quickly learning the
split T assignments.
Bob McCurry, Michigan State
fullback, was a casualty-he broke
the little finger of his right hand.
