mes Kahn


NEW YORK (M - In an at-
osphere steeped in bitterness
nd plainly showing the dissen-
on between the two stockholders,
ving Kahn was announced yes-'
rday as the third member of
ze Rosensohn Enterprises, Inc.
Bill Rosensohn, president, holds
ne-third of the stock in the or-
anization which promoted the
loyd Patterson-Ingemar Johans-
>n world champion heavyweight
ght, and ostensibly will promote
he return match.
Vincent J. Vellela, secretary and
easurer, owns two-thirds of the
ock, and thus has a controlling
otng interest.
Veliela Receives
It was his vote that elected
ahn, president of Teleprompter,
hich had the ancillary rights to
he first fight, ana, now has them
r the second, tentatively sched-
led for Sept. 22 at Yankee Sta-
Rosensohn was asked if he had
ot said he would conf'rol the an-
ilary rights for the second fight
"As recently as last week I said
hat," he said.
"Does that mean you have
hanged your mind, or someone
banged it for you?I"
"I will not comment on 'that,"
he so-called boy promoter said
Vellela was seated in Rosen-,
ohn's chair behind the big desk
i the Rosensohn Enterprises of-
ces when Rosensohn 'entered the
ress conference.
"Vince, would you mind getting
ut of my chair," Rosensohn said
oldly. Vellela moved.
Note Friction
At first Rosensohn, who from
me to time rested his head on
is folded arms in utter dejection,
'ied to minimize any obvious dis-
greement between the partners.
"There is nothing I care to talk
bout," he said. "I would say any
isagreement is over p e r s o n a 1
aings, and I'll have a statement
[onday afternoon."
Further friction was noted when
>meone asked Vellela if his re-
ent trip to Sweden concerned the
'eleprompter arrangements for
he return fight.
Vellela said he made the trip
nly on business of the Rosensohn

Frank Bettucci of the New York'
Athletic Club.
Don Corriere and Dennis Fitz-
gerald, Michigan varsity wrestlers
competing at 174%, were sent to
the sidelines. Corriere was elim-
nated when he lost a decision to
Dale Sullivan of the Army. Sul-
livan had lost earlier to Fitzger-
Fitzgerald needed to beat Jim
Packham of the Boston YMCU to
stay in the -tournament, but he
could manage nobetter than a
draw. Peckham had drawn with
Corriere Thursday.
Class Champ Crowned
The champion was crowned in
the 191 pound class. Frank Rosen-
mayr of the San Francisco Olym-
pic Club won four decisions in
four bouts during two days of!
Two of these decisions came
over the only other two matmen
still in the running, Tim Woodin
of MSU and William Ferrell of
New York AC. Woodin and Fer-
rell will meet today to decide sec-
ond and third places.
All three men will train here
prior to the Games, which will be
held in Chicago Aug. 27-Sept. 7.
Rosenmayr will actually compete
at 191, unless he is injured in
In other action yesterday the
tournament's .oldest contestant,
50-year-old Dr. Melvin Northrup
of the San Francisco Olympic
Club, won two successive matches
on falls. He, along with four oth-
er grapplers, is still in the running
for first place at 1471/2 pounds.
Gains Split Decision
Jim Ferguson of MSU gained a
split decision victory last night to
stay in contention for the 1742
pound title. Ferguson took down
Roy Conrad of Chicago with 30
seconds left in their match, and
this proved decisive.
The day's best bout resulted in
a decision victory for Veryl Long
of the Army over. Ron Mehlin of
the Marines. The fast moving
Long proved too elusive for Me-
lin in their wide-open match.
Bert Corr of the Marines and
Tom Huff, of Waterloo, Iowa, won
decisions at 125 pounds to re-
main undefeated after four
matches apiece. They, along with
Dave Auble of Cornell and the
NYAC, are the three best men
left at that weight.
A total of sixteen wrestlers were
eliminated 'in last night's 22
matches. Twenty-three more will
be eliminated today.

Pro Loops
In Works'
ATLANTIC CITY, (A') -- Three
new professional football leagues
are in the works, Commissioner
Bert Bell of the National Football
League said yesterday.
He said the leagues are the pro-
posed American League, backed
by Texas oilman Lamar Hunt; the
Trans-America League, for which
Travis Tidwell, former New York
Giants quarterback, is spokesman
and the International League.
Bell said he knew little about
any league except the one backed
by Hunt to which he referred
Tuesday in Washington before a
Senate, committee.
Best Chance for Hunt
The International League, Bell
said, is being proposed by "some-
one named Corbitt from Texas. I
think he has something to do
with baseball. I've also heard the
name. Harvey Hester of Miam
Bell said he did not know what
group Tidwell represented or
where or when it planned to lo-
cate teams.
The Lamar Hunt group, he said
seems to have the best chances of
success. The American League
would start with teams in Hous-
ton. Denver, Dallas, Minneapolis
Los Angeles and New York.
Might Add More
If it was successful, franchises
might be added in Boston, Buffa-
10, Louisville, Miami, Seattle. and
San Francisco.

ers in pro golf, put together an

WASHINGTON 0?P)-Sen. Estes
Kefauver (D-Tenn.), cautioned
baseball moguls yesterday their
efforts to help or hinder the pro-
posed third major league will be
watched closely by Congress.
Kefauver, chairman of the Sen-
ate M o n o p o l y Subcommittee,
aimed his remarks squarely at
Warren Giles and Joe Cronin,
presidents respectively of the
National and American Leagues,
and George Weiss, the New York
Yankees general manager.
Statements 'Discouraging'
The Senator said he had read
news accounts of what he called
some "rather discouraging state-
ments" attributed to all thtee.
"I hope these gentlemen will
have a change of heart," Kefauv-
er said.
He said Congress and his in-
vestigating subcommittee will
,watch with very close interest
what happens when the founders
of the new Continental League
meet Aug. 18 with owners and of-
ficials of the American and Na-
tional Leagues.
Talks at Hearing
Kefauver spoke at a public
hearing at which William A. Shea,
chairman of the new league's
founding committee, said he
wanted to see what happens at the
Aug. 18 meeting before discussing
whether he wants any help from
How the two big leagues con-
duct themselves toward the new-
comer, Kefauver, indicated, ought
to shed light on whether organ-
ized baseball has achieved mon-
opoly power.
'Good Beginning'
Paul Porter, counsel for Base-
ball Commissioner Ford C. Frick
made a brief statement in behal
of Giles.
He said Giles had been quotec
as saying five clubs don't make a
major league.
Porter said he had been advised
by Giles' counsel that Giles had
added, however, thatin his opn-
ion this was a good beginning.

pionship from Mike Souchak, one
of golf's giants.
The 43-yeah -old Los Angeles
veteran shot a second round of 65,
five under par for the 6,850-yard
Minneapolis course and two un-
der Souchak's 67, which looked'
plenty good when he posted it.
They each shot 69s on the first
round to share in a nine-way tie
for the lead.
Ahead by Two Strokes
Thus after 36 holes it was Bar-
ber 69-65-134 and Souchak 66-
When Souchak finished his
round late on a hot, sunny after-
noon, Barber had just passed the
9-hole turn in 30, five under par.
A large part of the crowd of more
than 10,000 took off when Mike's
final putt dropped to see if Jerry
could overhaul him. And Barber
gave the fans a show.
He bogled the 10th and 12th
holes to slip back even with Sou-
chak, then got those two strokes
back with birdies at the 14th and
15th. From there on Barber had
it made. He parred the rest of
the way in and added a final
flourish when he barely missed an
eight foot putt for a birdie on
the 18th.
Nearest to the two leaders as
the clustered PGA field began to
spread out were Doug Sanders, a
broad shouldered young golfer
from Miami Beach, whose 66 was
almost obscured by Barber's feats;
the defending champion, Dow
Finsterwald, and former ama-
teur champion Gene Littler.
Sanders Third
Sanders' round, second best of
the tournament, moved him into
third place at 138, a stroke below
Finsterwald, who posted a 68 for

139 early in the day but couldn'tN
hold the lead. Littler came inf
shortly after with 69-70--139. c
At 140 were Bill Casper, Jr., thef
1959 National Open champion;
Cary Middlecoff, twice winner oft
the Open, and the 1957 PGA
champion, Leionel Hebert.e
Barber's bid for the lead pro-
vided an exciting climax for a
long day of good golf on the Min-
neapolis course, seared by a bright
sun and 91-degree heat.-
Barber, a part-time player on
the pro tour who can hit a ball
with authority despite his merea
135 pounds, birdied five of the
first nine holes. He 'didn't find;
much trouble until he drove into
a trap at the 220-yard tenth hole.
At the 468-yard 12th, one of the
tougher par fours, he had to chip
from off the edge of the green
and then took two putts for a bo-
gey five.
At that stage he was three un-
der par-just even with Souchak.
But he rolled in a 12-foot putt for
a birdie to go ahead at the 14th
hole, then wrapped it up at the
581-yard 15th. There he put a
neat pitch and run shot about
four feet from the cup for his
It was at the 15th that Souchak
made one of the few mistakes of
his round. Instead of pitching
short to the hard-baked green,
Mike went for the pin and his
ball bounced over, costing him a
chance for a birdie.
Greens Hard
"Those greens were so hard I
had to stay on the defense all the
way," Souchak said. "I should
have done it there, too. I should
have pitched to the fairway and.
let it roll up."
Souchak, a tremendous driver,

was hitting his tee shots remark-
ably well and he "stumbled in" a
couple of long putts, notably a 20-
footer on the 12th green which
almost hopped out of the cup and
then dropped back in.
Barber's big break came at the
443-yard seventh hole where he
skulled his drive and sent it only
about 150 yards down the fair-
way. His approach left him still
60 yards away, but he holed out
a wedge shot from there for a
bridie three.
He had sunk a 17-foot birdie
putt on the sixth green and he
knocked in one of 15 feet at the
ninth. His other birdies' came at
the second, where he approached
10 inches from the cup, and on a
three-foot putt at the short

started, have topped their entire
1958 home attendance by more
than 12,000 admissions.
The b'ox office prosperity proves,
as it always does, that nothing
succeeds like success, but there
also is the business magic of Bill
Veeck to consider.
When the White Sox Thursday
polished off the New York Yan-
kees for the 10th time in 17 tries,
an amazing weekday matinee
crowd of 30,858 was on hand to
boost Chicago's home attendance
to 809,848 for 45 Comiskey Park
dates. This latest Yankee series,
-including Tuesday and Wednes-
day night games, attracted 118,-
Top Last Year
Last season, the second-finish-
ing White Sox drew only 797,451
for the entire home campaign of
69 dates. That is exactly 12,397 be-
hind this year to date.
And the first 45 dates last year
had sent 254,364 fewer fans
through the turnstiles than the

to say there is no substitute for
winning," said Veeck, who, among
other things has had "spacemen"
midgets descend on the pitching
mound and generally dolled up
the ball park.
"An enjoyable atmosphere and
a cleaner park help keep the cus-
tomers coming back," said the
former operator of the Indians
and former St. Louis Browns.
"But you don't get too many re-
peaters with a loser."
Drew Record Crowd
Then, as if to refute this state-
ment, Veeck pointed out that his
eighth-place Browns in 1952 drew
the second highest season attend-
ance in the club's history.
"We had even more than when
the Browns won the pennant in
1944 and the most for a season
since 1922," recounted Veeck,
whose stunt at St. Louis included
use of a midget as a pinch-hitter.
Veeck's improvements at Co-
miskey Park, costing around $150,-
