All-Star Classic Pits Drysdale Against Wynn

Drysdale of the Los Angeles Dodg-
ers and 39-year-old Early Wynn
of the Chicago White Sox will try
to stop right handed power with
right handed pitching in today's
26th All-Star Baseball game.
The National League is a slight
favorite in the game scheduled to
start at noon with network radio
and television coverage. The
American League holds a 15-10
edge in the series and has won
the last two games.
Vice-President Richard Nixon
will be among the 35,000 specta-
tors who will jam picturesque,
50-year-old Forbes Field to its
capacity. This baseball-crazy city
hasn't had an All-Star Game
since the war years of 1944 when


the Nationals managed a 7-1


The weatherman promises to be
kind. Although some scattered
thundershowers were scheduled
during the night, it was supposed
to be sunny and pleasant today'
with the temperature in the 80s.
Both managers announced their
pitchers and batting orders at .a
news conference yesterday.
Casey Stengel of the New York
Yankees said he had switched
from Baltimore's Hoyt Wilhelm
to Wynn after he learned the
Orioles' knuckle ball pitcher had
worked six innings Sunday.
"I didn't have a chance to
talk with him and I had to make
the announcement today," he said.

PITTSBURGH (P)--The major
league player- representatives yes-
terday officially ended all rela-
tions with their deposed attorney,
J. Norman Lewis, and discussed
the possibility, of including man-
agers in their plush pension plan.
The players, in a day-long series
of meetings, also considered sev-
eral proposals aimed at easing
their tax burden.
Lewis, who was ousted last
March, appeared at the meeting
and brought the players up to
date on two, pending court cases.
One concerned a test case begun
by outfielder Bob Nieman of the
Baltimore Orioles asking for tax
relief for players maintaining two
residences. The other concerned
a suit asking that the player half
of the four-man pension com-
mittee be entitled to have its own
The players decided to continue
to press for tax relief but agreed
to drop the other suit. They also
weighed the possibility of a plan

ede Good,



NEW YORK M - Heavyweightt
Champion Ingemar Johansson
should have five more good years
of fighting if he controls himself
and doesn't let adulation go to
his head.r
That is the opinion of Gene
Tunney as expressed in an inter-
view with Lester Bromberg in the
New York World-Telegram and
Sun yesterday.
"His future may depend on
what acclaim does to him," the
former heavyweight champion
said. "He has a nation of seven
million virtually at his feet. It's a
heady thing."
Concerning the ability of the
personable Swede to continue five
more years, Tunney said:
kI was 30 when I retired for
pesonal reasons. I was just com-
ing to my peak and I could have
held it for another few years,
since I was of late-maturing
stock. He (Johansson) is also of
that sort."
Johansson's classic style has
impressed Tunney.
"Straight left, right across," he
explained. "They are bread and.
butter. It's the sound way to box,
it's classic. And he does it much
the same as I did."
Tunney thought J o h a n s s o n
could have gone the 15 rounds to
win on points over Floyd Patter-
son if he had not connected with
his right in the third.
"He was going to close Patter-'
son's eyes with that persistent left
jab," he said, adding that Patter-
son cannot regain the title with-
out reshaping his tactics.
"His attempt to defend by hid-
ing behind his elbows is basically
wrong," he elaborated. "Sooner or
later anybody trying it must come
out of it. A counter puncher with
a sense of anticipation can vir-
tually call his shot against him.
Let's face it, your fists are your
weapons, not a shield."

by snaking in a 30-foot birdie
putt on the 11th green and eased
to his fourth major tournament
triumph of the year.
Ironically, it was just a year
ago yesterday that Wall defeated
Finsterwald in a sudden-death
playoff for the Rubber City Open
title. That victory came on the
second extra hole 'and gave Wall
the $2,800 top prize. Finsterwald
settled for $900.
Wall Leads Money Winners
The $9,000 check for yesterday's
victory over the rambling War-
wick Hills layout increased Wall's
money winnings for the year to
$54,783, including '-nofficial win-
nings. The game's leading money
winner, Wall now has finished
first or second in 11 of 21 tourna-
ments ,this year.
In addition to his come-from-
behind win in the Masters, the
man with the unusual baseball
grip also won the Pebble Peach.
and Azalea tournaments.
Wall birdied the 587-yard, par-5
first hole yestrday. He put a
wedge approach 10 feet from the
flag and made his putt, while
Finsterwald missed an eight-foot-
er and took a par.
Wall was in a trap on the 451-
yard second hole, but blasted out
beautifully and made his 10-foot
par putt. Finsterwald also landed
in the sand, blasted out but missed
his par putt from six feet.
Wall went three strokes up on
the 194-yard, par-3 No. 11 hole.
His iron shot to the green was
30 feet to the right of the flag.
Wall, one of golf's most deadly
chippers and putters, made the
30-footer that curled completely
around the cup before dropping
Wall turned back Finsterwald's
bid to gain a stroke at the 13th, a
par 5 hole. Finsterwald was on in
two and two-putted for his birdie.
Wall was in the sand, but blasted
out to within five feet and made
his birdie putt.
Wall gained another stroke at
14. He put an iron shot two feet
from the pin and got his birdie
three. Finsterwald took a par.

Finsterwald gained a stroke with
a par-five at 16. Wall was in the
trap and two-putted from eight
Wall was in aeep trouble at 17.
His drive went into the trees at
the 222-yard par-three hole. The
second shot went over the green
and into another trap. He pitched
on and two-putted from 12-feet
for a double bogey five. Finster-
wald also was trapped but could
make only four. Both finished
with par-fours on the final hole.

salaries over a period of years.
They plan to make this proposal
to the club owners at the annual
winter meeting in Miami next De-
The inclusion of managers in
the pension plan, if agreed upon,
would not become effective until
after the current contract with
the insurance company expires in
The players also discussed the
possibility of continuing to play
two All-Star Games annually and
agreed to await developments.
"We adopted a wait-and-see
policy," explained Robin Roberts,
the National League player repre-
sentative. "We want to see how
the second All-Star Game (in
Los Angeles, August 3), works out
before we decide whether to con-
tinue the policy of two games a
Roberts explained the need for
the second All-Star Game.
"We have to pay back service
for players no longer active in
baseball.," he said. "Under normal
circumstances it would take us
17 years to pay off all back serv-
ice. The proceeds from this game
(60 per cent goes to the pension
fund) will cut off one year, of
those payments."
The "back service" referred to
by Roberts resulted from increased
pension benefits after the new
World Series radio-TV contract
was signed in 1957. This meant
additional payments had to be
made to the insurance company
covering players no longer active.
Roberts said the players plan
to engage another attorney to re-
place Lewis but did not know
when he would be named.
"Our applicants have now
dwindled down to two or three,"
he said, "but I don't think we
will come to a decision at least
until October."

Rawls Defeats Berg,
TakesWormen's Open

"Old Case" had this to say
about Wynn: "He is an experi-
enced pitcher who has won 20
games a number of years in his
career. He has been pretty good
against us (Yanks) and those big
names won't scare him." It will
be Wynn's fifth All-Star appear-
ance but first start. He won in
relief last year.
NL Pitcher a Tossup
Fred Haney of the Milwaukee
Braves said it had -been a tossup
between the 22-year-old Drysdale
(9-6), a fast ball pitcher with a
deceptive side arm delivery, and
his own Lew Burdette (11-8).
"Drysdale will have had three
days of rest to go three innings,"
he said. "If I pitched Burdette
they would think \'I was favoring
my own players so I decided to go
with Drysdale."
Haney said he planned to use
Burdette as his second pitcher
and would have Pittsburgh's Roy
Face ready for action at any time.
"He might finish up for me and
I might need him if one of the
others gets in a jam," said Haney.
Face is the darling of the Pirate
fans with his 12-0 record. He
hasn't lost a game since May 30,
1958 and owns an amazing 0.82
earned run average.
Wilhelm May Relieve
Stengel wouldn't name any sec-
ond pitcher after Wynn (11-5)
but it seemed that Wilhelm (9-4)
was due to see action if he felt
ready for work .
"And my man (Ryne Duren)
will be in there some time," said
Stengel. "He is going real good
and he hasn't worked since Fri-
day." Duren, the Yanks' bespec-
tacled relief ace, has only a 1-2
record but is on a strikeout binge
with a long string of scoreless
The only question mark in the
starting lineups had been Al
Kaline, Detroit's center fielder.
Kaline underwent corrective sur-
gery last week for a cheekbone
fractured June 18. He hasn't
played in a work but relayed word
to Stengel that he was having the
stitches removed today and defi-
nitely wanted to play. Stengel was
duly impressed. In Detroit, Kaline
said he would ask to be relieved
after three innings.
Mickey Mantle, the center field-
er behind Kaline, in the players'
vote didn't play Sunday because
of leg trouble but he told his
manager he wanted to get into
the game.
Many Home Run Hitters
Both batting orders presented a
problem with so many home run
hitters (a total of 122 on each
starting side,,;exclusive of pitch-
ers). The cleanup spots went, to
San Francisco's Willie Mays, the
National's center fielder, and first
baseman Bill Skowron of the
Yankees. Catcher Del Crandall of

Milwaukee was way down in the
No. 8 spot for the National despite
12 home runs and Harmon Kille-
brew, Washington's sensational
third baseman who leads the ma-
jors with 28 homers, was batting
No. 7 for the American.

Milwaukee, leading both leagues
at .370, was batting third behind'

of St. Louis for second place.
Gilliam picked up 14 points with

Harmon Killebrew of Washing-

last week, lifting his league-lead-
ing total to 28. He also paces the
American League in runs batted

FRENCH LICK, Ind. (P)-Betsy
Rawls, a Phi Beta Kappa who
majors in winning golf tourna-
ments, hung on grimly yesterday
to take the Ladies Professional
Golf Assn. title by a single stroke.
The 31-year-old onetime phy-
sics student shot a one-over-par
75 on the hilly Sheraton Country
Club course for a 72-hole total of
288 that edged rallying Patty Berg
of West Chicago, Ill.
Louise Suggs of Cincinnati also
closed fast to grab third place
with 290 for the four-day event.
Miss Rawls' victory kept intact
a young tradition of no winner
ever repeating for the ladies pro
title. Mickey Wright of San Diego,
Calif., last year's LPGA and cur-
rent Open Champion, finished
seventh with 296.
The new champ from Spartan-
burg, S. C., went into yesterday's
play with a seemingly comfortdble
four-stroke lead over runnerup
Joyce Ziske of Milwaukee, who
eventually wound up in fourth
But Miss Rawls ran into a
peck of trouble with her irons,
and she had to birdie the 18th to
slip in ahead of Miss Berg for
$1,247.35 in top price money.
A bogey five on the 17th hole
where she missed a putt by two
inches cost Miss Berg a cham-
pionship tie. The runnerup shot a
four-under-par 70, while Miss
Suggs in third place finished with
a 71.
The victory kept Miss Rawls on
top of the money heap for gal
golfers this year, raising her sea-
son total winnings to $12,528.
Miss Rawls, who won her Phi
Beta Kappa key at the University
of Texas, proved she's pretty
clever on a golf course as well as
when she set a new women's tour-
namont course record of 68 Friday
and followed it with a 69 on Sat-

With Browns
CLEVELAND () - The Cleve-
land Browns announced last night
that fullback Jim Brown has
signed his third professional con-
tract at a raise in pay.
Salary terms were not disclosed,
but Brown's salary is estimated in
the $20,000 bracket, which makes
him the highest paid player on
the team.
"We feel that he is worth every
cent we pay him," coach Paul.
Brown said. "Jim is one of the
stars of the National Football
League and a major factor in our
success the last two seasons. His
running makes him one of the
league's top gate attractions."
