CHICAGO (P)-The captain of

disclosed yesterday the 1959 team
will be named this weekend and

Two Michigan gymnasts have

The two were chosen as the re-
sult of a meet held in Windsor
July 10-11. The meet was also the
Canadian Gymnastics Champion-
ship meet.
Montpetit scored first in the

new program to build United
States tennis stars. These players,
as well as the adults, are trying in
suburban River Forest this week
for berths on the squad which will
defend the Davis Cup.
Program New
The program is new in its ap-
plications to junior players. For
the first time, six top youngsters
will be named to the squad with
equal membership with older play-
ers such as Alex Olmedo, star of
last yearsvictorious entry in the
challenge round against Australia.
Among the outstanding juniors
competing at the tournament in
suburban River Forest are Ramsey
Earnhart, Ventura, Calif.; Larry
Nagler, North Hollywood, Calif.;
Paul Palmer, Phoenix; Marty Ries-
sen. Hinsdale, Ill.; Bill Bond, La
Jolla, Calif.; Dennis Ralston, Bak-

young players practically have
been forgotten after they lost an
early match in a tournament.
"Now, if they lose here this
week, off they go to the next tour-
nament at Merion (the Philadel-
phia Grass Court Tournament),"
Jones said.
Assistants Help
There they will be met by one
of Jones' assistants who will work
with them prior to the tournament,
giving each individual instruction.
Besides working on the young-
sters' physical game, Jones and
hishelpers are trying to give each
top junior confidence that he has
an actual chance to make the
Davis Cup squad.
This 'mental therapy worked
with Alex Olmedo last year, Jones
boasted. "He was ranked 11th in
the nation at this time last year,
which was nothing," said Jones.
"Then I told him if he settled down
he could make the Davis Cup
squad. Now he's about the best in
the world."
Jones listed the tentative Davis
Cup team, exclusive of juniors, as
Bernard Bartzen, defending clay
court singles champion, Earl Euch-
holz Jr., Chris Crawford, Donald
Dell, Jon Douglas, Myron Franks,
Grant Golden, Ron Holmberg,
Clifton Mayne, Barry MacKay

Yawl Leads
Yacht Race
HONOLULU UP) - The 66-foot
yawl Chubasco held its head yes-
terday in the squal-swept Trans-
Pacific Yacht Race.
The Chubasco, owned by Don-
ald Haskell of Newport, Calif.; not
only led in its class and the fleet,,
but also was out in front in the
handicap standings, which deter-
mine the actual winner.
The Chubasco reported its po-
sition 441 miles northeast of
Honolulu at 5 a.m. yesterday, Ha-
waii Standard Time, after a run
Sunday of 174 miles.
Behind -her, 449 miles from
Honolulu, was the 75-foot schoon-
er Constellation, owned by Sally
Blair Ames, the only woman skip-
per in the 2,225-mile yachting
The Constellation was second'
in fleet position, but sixth in the
handicap positions.
The biggest boat in the race, the
161-foot schooner Goodwill, was
in third position 467 miles from
Honolulu and sailing well south of
the main fleet. Owner Ralph Lar-
rabee was gambling on catching
some winds the others won't get.

skeptics suggest - it still is a
good cut above the number who
turn out for the Kentucky Derby,
World Series or top fotball games.
The defending champion, this
year is the Hawaii Kai, formerly
owned by Edgar Kaiser, son of in-
dustrialist Henry Kaiser. The
Kai's 103.481 mile average in the
1958 race shows how far the sport
has come since the Columbia
Yacht Club's entry, the Standard,
won the first Gold Cup in the east
in 1904 at 23.6 miles an hour.
To qualify now you must com-
plete three laps of the three-mile
course at 95 miles an hour or bet-
ter. On straightaways the boats
bat along at up to 180, so fast that
hitting a tiny piece of debris can
wreck a boat.
All the top entries now are
varied versions of the three-point-
ers. At racing speeds the boat
rides on tips of the sponsors -
rounded extensions at the bottom
of the hull - and the propeller.
That is, the part of the propeller
that isn't out of the water.
Many Accidents
Despite safety precautions, ao-
cidents have marred some races.
Last summer a jammed rudder
sent driver Bill Muncey of Seattle
and the speedboat Miss Thrtf-
way careening into a U. S. Coast
Guard patrol boat at 100 miles an
hour. Muncey and the Coast
Guardsmen were rescued but the
two craft sank.
A few months earlier Muncey
was injured when his speedboat
disintegrated at Madison, Ind.,
during running of the Governor's
Cup. The first time the Gold Cup
was run on Lake Washington, in
1951, two men drowned when the
Miss Quicksilver of Portland, Ore.,
hit a submerged object and sank.
All the recent winners used Al-
lison or Rolls Royce power plants.
The crews beef them up with "ex-
otic" fuels with almost as much
care and secrecy as experts setting
off rockets at Cape Canaveral.
Boats Costly
The boats and their operation
cost plenty. One estimate is that
the expected 21 entries combined
are worth a half million dollars.
This doesn't pose any major
problem to owners like William
Waggoner Jr., the Arizona and
Texas oil and cattle man.
But little fellows want to get
into the act, too. Several com
munity groups sponsor boats,
s o m e t i m e s scraping up just
enough dough to get to the race.
There's ,no monetary prize to
the winner, unless you count the
publicity for sponsors whose en-
tries carry product names.
The Gold Cup itself is a per-
petual trophy donated 55 years
ago by New York's Columbia
Yacht Club. It's a piece of silver
with a thin layer of yellow metal
that hardly looks worth, all the
fuss. But you couldn't tell that to
the participants or spectators.

Parks Second
Parks followed him to the finish
line with a time of 11 hours, and
15 seconds.
Th& 28-year-old swimmer looked
exhausted after leaving the 70-
degree water.
Parks told newsmen that he be-
came caught in the tide near the
end of the arduous swim and "I
never could quite get back." Earlier
in the race, when Lumsden had
momentarily become caught on a
jetty, Parks stopped swimming and
went over to his opponent to see
if he was all right.
Parks and Lumsden have mono-
polized the distance swim since it
was begun six years ago. Parks
won in 1954, 1955 and last year,
Lumsden finishing second each
time. In 1956 Lumsden reversed

You've got more to go on than our saysso:
Every motor magazine has given Chevy's
standard passenger car and Corvette V8's
unstinted praise. SPORTS CARS ILLUS-
TRATED says it this way: ".. . surely
the most wonderfully responsive engine
available today at any price." And if you
want the thrift of a six, you still get the
best of it in a Chevy.
BEST ECONOMY Nodoubt about this;
a pair of Chevy sixes with Powerglide

this year's Mobilgas Economy Run-get-
ting the best mileage of any full-size car,
22.38 miles per gallon.
BEST BRAKES Not only bigger, but
built with bonded linings for up to 66%
longer life. Just to prove what's what,
Chevy out-stopped both of the "other two"
in a NASCAR*-conducted test of repeated
stops from highway speeds.

BEST RIDE A few minutes behind the

MOTOR TREND magazine sums it up
this way: .. the smoothest, most quiet,
softest riding car in its price class."
BEST TRADE-IN Check the figures in

Chevy used car prices last year averaged
up to $128 higher than comparable models
of the "other two."
