tive July 3, 1959, for attempting
to obstruct the investigation of
George M. Trautman, boss of the
minor leagues.'
Trautman announced the puni-
tive measures, warning that fail-
ure to report gambling activity
promptly in the future "will be
dealt with very severely."
Three other Chattanooga play-
ers - pitchers James Heise and
Thomas McAvoy and third base-
man Samuel Meeks - also were
named as having been approached
by Levan .but no disciplinary ac-
tion was taken against th.em.
Tra'utman said Heise and Meeks
were let off because of their co-
operation in the probe and Mc-
Avoy wasn't punished because he
thought the whole thing was a
Although Qther sports have been
rocked by gambling scandals,
baseball has been relatively free
of such involvement since the no-
torious "Black Sox Scandal" of
1919 when several members of
the Chicago White Sox were ac-
cused of throwing the world series
to Cincinnati. A number of play-
ers were banished for life.
Trautman's- investigation began
July 3 after Levan and Gonzalez
had been suspended by Charlie
Hurth, president of the Southern
Assn., for failure to. report bribe
Heise testified that Levan ap-
proached him on two occasions,
once before the .season started
and again after the season was
under way, with offers to help
throw games. f
The pitcher said Levan ,asked
him whether he (Heise) wanted.
to "make a little money" by
throwing soft pitches to -oppos-
ing batters. Heise said both times
he told Levan he would have no
part of such a deal.
Heise said he did not report the
incident to authorities because he
had refused to participate and
felt he was not personally in-

MINNEAPOLIS (P) - Just nine
players shaded par on the rifle-
range fairways and rock-hard
greens of the Minneapolis Golf
Club yesterday and all nine fin-
ished the first round of the Na-
tional PGA Championship in a tie
for first place.
Bill Casper Jr., the round young
man from California who won the
National Open last month, and
Mike Souchak, former Duke Uni-
versity football star, set the pace
early on a sunny, pleasant after-

noon. Then one after another, the
top performers of the gold. world
made their bids to pass them.
Seven caught up, but none went
ahead as the three finishing holes
at Minneapolis, made harder by
a cooling north wind, dished out a
full share of sorrow and frustra-
It probably was the first time
that so many have tied for the
lead in a tournament of this im-
portance, and almost certainly
the first time so many have been

within range of the lead. Advance
predictions were that any one of
two dozen players could win. Aft-
er the first round, it was nearer
three dozen who still had good
Tied with Casper and Souchak
were Gene Littler and JerryuBar-
ber, two other members of golf's
touring brigade; Walter Burkemo,
the stubby ex-sergeant from
Franklin, Mich., who flashes an
occasional great tournament
round; Jackson Bradley, a grey-
ing 37-year-old club pro from
Houston; Mike Krak, 31, who
operates a resort course at Mor-
gantown, W. Va.; Chuck Klein,
42-year-old driving range owner
from San Antonio, Tex., and Dick
Hart, a 23-year-old assistant pro
from Hinsdale, Ill.
Such big time performers as
Art Wall Jr., the year's leading
pro money-winner; Jack Burke, a
former PGA champ; Ken Venturi
and Billy Maxwell were among a
big group with even par 70s.

;hampion; Sam Snead, who has
won the PGA title at match play

NOT PLANNING TO RETIRE-New York Yankees manager
Casey Stengel, who was 69 years old yesterday, isn't planning a
party. Casey is holding eye glasses (not rose colored) in hand as
he tells reporters at Comiskey Park in Chicago July 28, "Retire-
ment I don't know anything about. They started that talk 12
years ago and I'm still around, ain't I?"

Ford and Leionel Hebert, and Bob
Rosburg, runner-up in this year's
open, were clustered with a. lot
of others at 71.
Arnold Palmer, Jay , Herbert,
former Open champions Cary
Middlecoff, Ted Kroll, Bob Goal-
by and several others had 72s.
With three more rounds to. go
over the demanding 6,850-yard,
par 35-35-70 Minneapolis course,
it was too early to count any of
them out.
The new policy of the PGA in
inviting approved tournament
players to compete in the other-
wise closed championship was re-
flected in the list of leaders. Cas-
per, Littler, Venturi and Palmer
were among those who had to
have special qualifications and
special invitations to get here.
The four finishing holes at
Minneapolis -- the ones that were
supposed to become suddenly
tough if the wind shifted to the
north, as it did yesterday -- were
the telling ones. Almost to a man,
the leaders were the ones who
steered clear of trouble from the
15th on.




PORTLAND, Ore (W) - The
major leagues were sued under
the Federal Anti-Trust Act yes-
terday by the Portland Baseball
Club. which asked damages of $1,-
800 ,000. The suit also asked that
baseball's farm system be broken
up in effect.
The suit said the major leagues
were a monopoly and their tele-
vision and player acquisition prac-
tices had brought "loss of income
and general reputation and good
In addition to -an award of
money, the Portland club, a mem-
ber of the Pacific Coast League,
asked that the major leagues be
enjoined from trying to monopo-
lize baseball; that each club be
forced to dispose of all players in
excess of 40 it owns or controls;
that any major league team own-
ing a minor league club be forced
to dispose of it; that territorial
rights of the Portland club be re-
spected on television and that un-

OSLO, Norway (-) - Ray Nor-
ton, champion U. S. sprinter from
California's San Jose State Col-
lege, won the 200 meters in sta-
dium record time and four of his
teammates captured second place
medals yesterday in the Yankee
Track Meet at Bislet Stadium.
Competing against a stellar in-
ternational field, including Rus-
sians, Norton won the 200 in 20.7
seconds. This erased the Bislet
Stadium record of 20.8 set by
Manfred Germar of West Ger-
many last year.
It was one of two stadium rec-
ords broken during the first day
of the two-day competition. An-
other mark was equalled.
Livio Berutti was second to
Norton with :21.1, followed by.
Carl Fredericks Bunaes of Nor-
way, :21.5, and Bob Davis of Elm-
hurst, N. Y., :21.8. Norton was the
only double winner for the United
States in the recent track meet
against the Russians at Philadel-
Tom Carroll of New York was
edged by a whisker in the 800
meter race by the world record
holder, Roger Moens of Belgium.
Both were clocked in 49.3 seconds.
Erroll Williams of Los Angeles
was beaten in an exciting high
jump duel with Stig Pettersson of
Sweden. The Swedish athlete won
with 6 feet, 10 inches, tying the
stadium's best. Williams did 6-7.
Bob Dumfries of Long Beach,

Calif., finished second in the dis-
cus. His heave of 169 feet, 10
inches was bettered by Stein Hau-
gen of Norway, who reached 180
feet, 71/2 inches. Warren Cawley
of Farmington, Mich. was second
to Guido Martini of Italy in the
400 meter hurdles. Martini did
:51.7, Cawley :51.8.
The Russians won two events
and shared in the record-busting.
Semion Rzhiskichin captured the
3,000 meter steeplechase in eight
minutes, 44.2 seconds, clipping
two-tenths of a second from the
mark set by Norway's Ernst Lar-
sen in 1957. Russia's Pjotr Bolot-
nikov won the gruelling 5,000 me-
ters in 13 minutes, 46 seconds.
Roar Berthelsen of Norway cap-
tured the broad jump with 24 feet,
5% inches. Reidun Buer of Nor-
way took the women's 100 meter
dash in 12 seconds fiat.

W' Wrestlers Stay A live
n Pan American Trials


Associate Sports Editor
Special to The Daily
EAST LANSING - "If he beats1
him, he'll be beating the best manr
in the nation."I
So said Michigan wrestlingX
coach Cliff Keen just before for-1
mer Michigan wrestler Mike Rod-r
riguez squared off against 1956f
Olympian 'Frank Bettucci lastC
night in the Pan American Games
mat trials at Michigan State's newz
Intra-mural Arena.
But the bull - like Rodriguez
pulled off a five-four upset decisionc
in a wide open 1471/2 pound match
that was the most exciting of last
night's 43 bouts.X
By winning, Rodriguez kept alive
a faint chance of making thec
United States team for the up1
coming Pan American Games Aug.
27-Sept. 7.
In the trials, which will be con-e
tinued here today and tomorrow,C
a wrestler is eliminated if he has
accumulated six "penalty points"
(one for victory by decision, twoX
for draw, three for loss by deci-1
sion, four by loss by fall).
Rodriguez, who lost by a fall
in his first bout yesterday after-
noon, now has a total of five pen-
alty points. He must win each 'of
his remaining matches by pins to
stay alive.
Bettucci's defeat was the first
suffered yesterday by any con-
testant representing the New York;
Athletic Club. NYAC grapplers had
been undefeated in six previous I
bouts during the day.t

Michigan's two varsity wrestlers
enterers in the trials' kept their
hopes alive as A result of last
night's action. Don Corriere, who
had lost an afternoon decision,
battled to a draw with Jim Peck-
ham of the Boston YMCU. Cor-
riere yow has five penalty points,
and is in the same precarious cir-
cumstances as Rodriguez.
Dennis Fitzgerald, who like Cor-
riere is wrestling at 1471/2 pounds,
won a close decision from Dale
Sullivan of the Army. Fitzgerald,
defeated by Big Ten 167 pound
champion Jim Ferguson in the
afternoon, now has four penalty
Ferguson won his two bouts by
decision and has two penalty
points going into today's action.
Charlie Anderson, a former Wol-
verine assistant mat coach, was
eliminated from the 125%/2 pound
competition after losing two deci-
