Moyer Battles Jordan
In Title Contest Tonight







PORTLAND, Ore. (P) - Denny
Moyer, still in his teens, gets a
crack at champion Don Jordan's
welterweight boxing title tonight.
Jordan, an experienced Los An-
geles body puncher with a 45-11
record, wound up training yester-
day by reiterating his belief he
Plan- Bantam
Return Bout
LOS ANGELES (P) - Tentative
plans were laid yesterday for a
local rematch of Mexico's Jose
Becerra, the new World Bantam-
weight Champion, and Alphonse
Halimi of France, the man he de-
Matchmaker George Parnassus
said it would be within 90 days in
the new Sports Arena, where Be-
eerra scored a stunning knockout
over the heavily backed French-
man in the eighth round of their
scheduled 15-rounder Wednesday
Becerra thus became the first
native of Mexico to win the un-
disputed championship of the 118-
pound division.
Celebration of his victory, his
12th straight knockout and 16th
straight triumph, continued yes-
terday and will be resumed today
when he flies to Mexico City.
Halimi, the 27-year-old ex-
champion, remained in semi-
seclusion yesterday. His manager,
Phillippe Filippi of Paris, collected
hiis $65,000 guarantee..
He advised Parnassus the Ha-
limi party will fly to New York
today and leave there Monday for
Halimi will rest a week or more
and then undergo a thorough
;hysical checkup.
"Then we will talk about the re-
natch," said Filippi.

will stop the fast, young Moyer
short of the scheduled 15 rounds.
It will be an outdoor bout at
Portland Meadows Race Track.
Promoter Tommy Moyer, Denny's
uncle, said he expects a crowd of
10,000 and a gate of $100,000.
The forecast is for fair weather
with the temperature near 72 de-
The 25-year-old Jordan said he
has a $70,000 guarantee. Young
Moyer's cut has not been dis-
Moyer is 19 and has had 20 pro-
fessional fights. He won them all.
He also had 82 bouts as an ama-
teur. He won the National AAU
welterweight title in 1957, the
year before he turned pro.
From Fighting Family
A member of a fighting Port-
land family - brother Phil is a
boxer, as were his father and
uncle - he won his shot at the
title with decisions this year over
Gaspar Ortega and Vince Martin-
ez, both highly regarded welter-
weights. Ring Magazine ranks
Moyer the No. 2 contender, the
National Boxing Assn. ranks him
No. 5.
Should Moyer upset Jordan, he
would become the youngest cham-
pion ever in the welterweight di-
Both men are noted for their
boxing skill, but for this bout at
least Jordan will start with the
reputation as the harder hitter.
Moyer is convinced he will win
-and for the same reason that
has made Jordan confident; they
faced each other in a training
ring last year.
Former Sparring Mate
That was in September when
Jordan was here training for a
fight with Gaspar Ortega. Moyer
was hired as a sparring partner
and they went three rounds
against each other on two sepa-
rate days. Each is convinced he
has solved the other's style.

PITTSBURGH (R') - Chunky
Joe Campbell, a former Purdue
University basketball player, fired
a course record 65 over the rolling
hills and slick greens of Pitts-
burgh Field Club yesterday to
grab the opening lead in the par-
busting first round of the West-;
ern Open Golf Championship.
Campbell came in early with
his score, five below standard fig-
ure, for the 6,625-yard layout.
Staggering a bit on the final two
holes, he barely missed a 63 which,;
he said, would have made it "the,
best round of my life.";
With his lead score firmly re-
corded, Joe had to sweat it out in

the clubhouse as the local favor-
ite made a final run for the lead.
Burly Arnold Palmer, the former
Masters Champion from Ligonier,
Pa., stroked a smooth 34 on the
front nine, then came home in 33
for a 67 in one of the last three-
somes on the course.
But that was good enough only
for a tie for fifth place.
Scores Low
As expected, the sharpshooting
golf tourists found the fairways
and greens to their liking and 18
of the 127 starters in this 60th
anniversary tournament matched
or bettered par 70.
So many good scores were re-

corded that the midpoint in the
big field was a scant 73 blows.
This, of course, left just about
everybody in the running and
pointed to a possibility that the
cutoff point for the low 50 and ties
after today's second round might
well be within four strokes of par.
The brilliant 65 was a shot bet-
ter than the previous competitive
mark for the Field Club, a 66 post-
ed by Chick Haibert of Northfield,
Mich., in a qualifying round. for
the 1953 Open. And that score
was matched yesterday by Doug
Ford, former Masters and West-
ern Open champ.

Campbell was great all around
the course, getting by with only
29 putts and only once holing a
really long one, a 40-footer for a
birdie deuce on the 201-yard six-
teenth. But at the seventeenth he
banged a nine iron five feet from
the pin and missed the putt,
taking par four. And on the
eighteenth he overdrove the green,
chipped back to 12 feet and need-
ed two putts to get down -- his
only bogey of the day. He had 32
strokes on the front nine, 33 com-
ing home.
Ford Runner-Up
Ford, the runner-up, had the
day's most spectacular scoring
shot on the same seventeenth that
cost Campbell a stroke. Doug
drove 240 of the 363 yards then
lofted a nine iron to the green

and into the cup for an eagle
It helped him to a blistering 30
on the incoming nine, to improve
his one-over par 36 at the half-
way point.
Palmer started fast with a bir-
die on the 482-yard opening hole
that carries the tee shot down a
long hill. He hit an eight iron to
within six inches of the pin and
holed the putt, then added anoth-
er birdie at six with a 30-foot
downhill putt. A three-putt bogey
on the -eighth slowed his attack
but successive birdies on the tenth
and eleventh holes gave him a
chance to catch Campbell. A bo-
gey on the 230-yard fourteenth
set him back and another bogey
on the seventeenth erased a birdie
on the sixteenth.

Set to Return
NEW YORK OP) - Jockey Ed-
die Arcaro, injured when his
mount fell in the Belmont Stakes,
returns to the saddle today. He
has been assigned four mounts at
Belmont Park today.
Arcaro spent almost a week in
the hospital following the acci-
dent, then fished for another week
in Canada. He suffered a mild
concussion, sprained neck muscles
and contusions of the left shoul-
der in the June 13 race. Black

Gunderson Paces Amateur, Tourney

CHICAGO ()-Sturdy Jo Anne
&runderson of Seattle, outdriving
her state rival 20 to 70 yards, yes-
terday defeated Anne Quast of
Everett 5 and 4 to gain the semi-
finals of the Women's Western
Amateur Golf Tournament.
Miss Gunderson, 20, the 1957
National Amateur Champion, was
2-up at the turn and closed out
the featured match of the quar-
terfinals 1-under-par for the 14
holes required.
Miss Quast, the 1958 National
titlist, had trouble with her short
irons and chip approaches, leav-
ing herself short innumerable
times while -Miss Gunderson hit
12 out of 14 greens in regulation.


Miss Quast was 4-over-par on
the tree-hemmed Exmoor Course
which rambles 6,567 yards and
carries a 37-38-75 standard.
This was the fifth match-play
meeting of the two Washington
links foes in various tournaments
since 1955 and it left the freckled
Miss Gunderson with a 3-2 edge
in the private series.
The trim Miss Quast, runner-
up in this meet last -year, never
won a hole. She lost the first two
as Miss Gunderson parred in reg-
ulation then birdied with, a chip
shot one foot from. the cup. They
halved the next 7, Miss Gunder-
son being 2-up with a 38 to her
opponent's 40.

Miss Gunderson unleashed blis-
tering sub-par shooting to take
the 10th with birdie 4 on another
deadly chip, the 12th with birdie
3 on a 10-foot putt and the 14th
with par 4 as Miss Quast again
chipped short 12 feet.
Miss Gunderson was so long off
the tees that on the 350-yard 12th
and 365-yard 14th, both of which
she won, she used a wedge on her
second shots.

Both Olmedo, 23, and Hallberg,
22, wore broad-brimmed sun hats
as protection from the sun during
their hour and 20 minutes match.
It was the hottest day of a rec-
ord heat wave here. Most of the
2,000 spectators wore bathing
suits or light sports clothes.
Olmedo played at half speed.
He handled his eager opponent
like a fisherman who had hooked
a trout.
Hallberg rushed the net repeat-
edly in the first set. Olmedo kept
driving him back with precision
lobs. The Swede scored with vol-
leys but he had to work hard for
his points while Alex maneuvered
calmly from the baseline.
In the second set Olmedo had
Hallberg running from corner to
corner. Alex stepped up the pace*
of his drives and soon the young
Swede was panting as he raced for
the ball in the oppressive heat.
Hallberg won the first game of
this set but Olmedo swept the
next ten and the match was as
good as over.
