BASKETBALL, FOOTBALL HEARD FROM:
Santee, Richards Get London Limelight

By The Associated Press
LONDON-Wes Santee, Kansas
track star and bolder of the U. S.
mile record, made a brief stop at
London Airport yesterday on his
wayto a track meet in Helsinki,
but- paused long enough to give a
few=--tips on how to run a four-
minute mile.
Santee, who this month did
the mile in 4.02:4, said "there
must be the desire to win--and
with that must follow the de-
sire for a lot of hard work."
Santee is a member of an eight-
man U. S. track team touring
Europe this summer.

thinks the handle "sir" to his
name is too-much to carry around
the racetracks.
Soon after leaving Buckingham
Palace, Richards announced that
with the permission of the Jockey
Club stewards he wanted to be
referred to as "G. Richards" over
track loudspeakers and on num-
ber boards.

WISCONSIN DELLS, Wis.-The
National Federation of High
School Athletic Associations, in
34th annual convention here, rec-
ommended yesterday expansion of
the basketball rule eliminating call
for minor fouls committed in the
backcourt.
By 4 a voice vote delegates ap-
proved a resolution asking the rule
De applied to minor fouls, not con-
nected with the play, no matter
where they occur.
Delegates heard a report on
the 1-and-1 rule which said the
1-year-old change reduced fouls
last season by 16 per cent from
a 10-year average.
The 1-and-1 rule specifies that
when a player shooting a one shot
penalty misses his first try he is
entitled to another chance. The
report said the rule increased
game times only an average of
two minutes. -

CLEVELAND -- Mac Speedie,
the National League's leading pass-

catcher, turned down a Cleveland
Browns contract and signed with
Regina in the Canadian League.
Coach Paul Brown said the
Cleveland team had offered the
33-year-old end a boost in pay
for the coming year but that
Speedie had. turned it down.
Brown said there was "no
doubt" the Cleveland team had
a legal contract to Speedie's
services.
"The question now is," Brown
continued, "whether we will take
legal action."

LAUREL, Md.-Driver Jimmy
Arthur left Laurel Raceway hur-
riedly over the week end for Roose-
velt Raceway at Westbury,, L. I.,
and track officials connected his
departure to a series of threaten-
ing letters.
Race Secretary Preston Jeun-
ine, said that Arthur had been
receiving the letters for several
days, and . that the FBI, state
police and Pinkerton detectives
were working on the case.
Details of the letters were not
disclosed, but it was understood
that they threatened harm to Ar-
thur's wife and two children. The
family lived in a trailer camp near
the raceway, where police found
it impossible to maintain a 24-
hour vigil.

Michigan track coach Don Can-
ham has been selected by the ex-
ecutive board of the National Am-
ateur Athletic Union to lead a
band of ten classy American track-
men through the wilds of Scanda-
navia early next month.
Big stops scheduled on the
three-week tour of track-crazy
Norway and Sweden are at Oslo
on August 5-6 and Stockholm on
August 16. On those dates Can-
ham's troupe will compete against
the national champions of Swe-
den and Norway before crowds ex-
pected to top the 70,000 mark.
THREE OLYMPIC standouts
and seven other well-knoyn com-
petitors make up the unit headed
by Canham, one of four groups
touring the European continent
this summer under arrangements
made by the AAU.
Leading this aggregation is
beefy Sim Iness, the Southern
Cal discus sensatio nwho recent-
ly established the world mark at
better than 190 feet. Ann Arbor
track fansihad a chance to see
him in action last week at the
Pacific Coast-Big Ten meet.
Cy Young, Olympic javelin
champion attached to the Los An-
geles Athletic Club and NCAA
sprint titlist Thane Baker of Kan-
sas State are two of the more
prominent names that Canham
will tutor and chaperone around
the North countries.
THE 11-MAN contingent is slat-
ed to fly from New York on August
1, arriving in Oslo a few days lat-
er on the first leg of its junket.
Meets have been scheduled just
about every day in the smaller
Norwegian and Swedish cities to
whet the racing appetite of these
nations where track is the national
sport.
Other athletes selected by the
AAU to make up Canham's squad
are Joe Lapierre, Georgetown
miler with a 4:08 clocking this
year, John Bennett, the 24-foot
Marquette broadjumper, Jim
Rogers, a quartermiler from
Morgan State and Bill Johnson,
fleet Pepperdein hurdler.
Rounding out the American
good-will clan are Jerry Walter,
LAAC half-miler, Bruce Drum-
mond, a miler from Oklahoma, and

pole vaulter Van Zimmerman
from the University of Pennsyl-
vania.
The trip isn't costing the AAU
a cent, since Scandanavian ama-
teur groups, which reap huge pro-
ceeds from sell-out meets, foot all
the bills including transportation
and expenses.
Canham was one of three
coaches nominated to take picked
teams to Europe this summer. Also
chosen yesterday by vote of the
70-man AAU selection committee
from a list of 17 American coaches
were Hec Edmonson of Washing-
ton and Wilbur Huttsel of Auburn.

NEW YORK- () --Only two
second basemen have led the Na-
tional League in batting during
the past 25 years, but Red Scho-
endienst, St. Louis Cardinal's sec-
ond sacker, appears to have a
good chance of doing just that
this season.
The 30-year-old Schoendienst
became the first major league
player to collect more than 100
hits this year when he garnered
a pair in Monday night's game
against the Chicago Cubs.
* * *
THE HITS gave Red a total of
101 in 292 times at bat for a
league-leading average of .346. He
gained five points last week with
12 safeties in 31 trips.
The American League race is

GUS ZERNIAL
... AL homer leader

developing into a four-man af-
fair among Billy Goodman,
George Kell and Tom Umphlett,
all of the Boston Red Sox, and
Mickey Vernon of the Washing-
ton Senators.
Goodman leads with .332. Kell is
next at .330, followed by Vernon's
.328 and Umphlett's .325. The
first three are former American
League batting champions.
* * *
BROOKLYN'S Jackie Robinson,
the last second sacker to top the
National League in hitting (.342
in 1949), is runner-up to Schoen-
dienst with a .335 mark.
Ted Kluszewski of Cincinnati,
who hit three homers last week,
took over the National League
lead in that department with 22.
Roy Campanella, Brooklyn cat-
cher. continues to set the pace
In runs batted in with 64.
In the American League, Phila-
delphia's Gus Zernial has struck
the most circuit blows, 18, and Al
Rosen of the Cleveland Indians
has batted in the most runs, 53.
EDDIE LOPAT, although he
dropped his first decision last Sat-
urday, still is the American, Lea-
gue's No. 1 pitcher. The New York
Yankee southpaw has an 8-1
(.889) record. Lew Burdette of
Milwaukee heads the National
with seven victories and no losses.
Slugging averages compiled
by the Associated Press show
that Bell tops the National'
League with a .617 mark.
In the American League, Al
Rosen -of the Cleveland Indians
shows the top figure of .574.

By The Associated Press
BIMINGHAM -- Golf's long-
est and toughest grind, the PGA
championship, begins its week-
long run today with two strong-
backed tournament pros sharing
the favorite'sdrole-Sam Snead
and Cary Middlecoff.
Jim Turnesa, the mild-man-
nered defending champion from
Briarcliff, N. Y., himself is pick-
ing Snead, a three-time winner, as
the man most likely to survive the
203-hole medal and match play
marathon.
* * *
"YOU HAVE TO pick Snead in
every tournament he plays," said
Turnesa, who might be excused
for not reading up on the U.S.
Open.
Middlecoff, winner of the
Carlings Open at Cleveland over
the week-end, comes to Birm-
ingham with his clubs "hot," as
the boys say, and with a big
collection of backers, including
former champion Vic Ghezzi.
Ghezzi, the giant Italian who is
the favorite golfing partner of the
Duke of Windsor, said: "This is a
course which will pay a premium
to good drivers. That shoots Mid-
dlecoff right into the limelight."
* * *
THE COURSE is the tight, 6,465-
yard Birmingham Country Club

layout. Its par 71 has been made
less attainable by a sharp narrow-
ing of the fairways and planting
of numerous new traps which
force greater shooting accuracy.
One hundred and forty pro-
fessionals tour the course to-
morrow in the first of two
rounds of qualifying. The low
64 for the 36 holes tomorrow
and Thursday make the cham-
pionship bracket, which plunges
immediately into a rigorous
match play schedule.
Two 18-hole rounds Friday cut
the field to 16. From that point
36-hole rounds will be held daily
until the finals next Tuesday. This
is the most unpredictable of all
tournaments and it's a good bet
many of the favorites won't be
around for the shooting early next
week.
* * *
TURNESA announced today he
would seek the meddi1 although,
as champion, he is exempt from
qualifying. The low medal carries
a $250 prize.
"I'm not playing well," said
the swarthy New Yorker. "I've
only had a few rounds the last
few months when I haven't had
a seven or an eight on my card."
Snead is trying to catch up with
Walter Hagen's record of five PGA
championships, but he isn't the

only one in the list with such a
good start. Gene Sarazen, playing
in his 29th PGA tournament, also
has three titles. He has won a
record 53 matches.

WIMBLEDON, England -- An
All-American women's final was
set up for the eighth straight year
at Wimbledon when defending
champion Maureen Connolly of
San Diego, Calif., and three other
Americans won semi-final berths
yesterday in the all-England lawn
tennis championships.
