Ferrier’s Chip Shots, Putts,
Beat Harbert In PGA, 2 And 1
By FRITZ HOWELL
DETROIT, June 24—{JP> — Big,
blond James Bennett Elliott (Jim)
Perrier, who sinks putts even
longer than his name, today won
America's 29th PGA champion
ship over Plum Hollow’s rolling
fairways. . .
The Australian-born resident ot
San Francisco defeated Melvin
(Chick- Halbert of nearby North
ville, Mich., 2 and 1, in the 36
hoie title round, to become the.
first foreign-bom entrant to win
the classic since Tommy Armour,
the silver Scot, turned the trick
in 1930. . ,
Ferrier, a gum-chevver who plays
with the speed of a tortoise and j
the finesse of a billiard shark, is.
a sophomore at this play-for-pay J
fixture, but he has made gooa
use of his two tries. Last year tie :
set the tournament’s qualifying!
record with 71-63-134, and this j
year he hit the peak by grabbing
the crown. '
The gentleman from Down un
der has arrived on top. j
Ferrier also, if he cared, could:
]ay claim to the golf-carom title,:
for he rattled tee shots off eignt
galleryites today as a crowd of
7,000 thronged the course to boost
the attendance to 52,800, far over
the previous record of 36,000' set
two years ago at Dayton, O.
Harbert, also a second-time en
trant in the PGA and the avowed
favorite of the galleri.es, stuck a
red tee behind his right ear and
Parted as if he would sweep the
itolid Ferrier off the course.
Chick holed a four-footer on the
first, and a 15-footer on the sec
ond each good for a birdie — to
go two up, but the big fellow
with the unorthodox dip in his
awing remained unruffled. He
canned a 20-footer on the third for
a birdie, and his par on the fourth
was good enough to even the
match._
ion SURPRISES
MANAGER, CUBS
Hurls Two-Hit 13 To 0
Win In First Start
For Giants
CHICAGO, June 24—(A*)—Manag
er Mell Ott, in a desperation move,
sent larence “Hooks” Iott, recent
ly acquired pitcher, against the
Chicago Cubs today and the un
sung lefthander came through with
a two-hit, l’-O, triumph for the
New York Giants.
Ott made the surprising nomina
tion because he didn’t want to
overwork Dave Koslo, his only
available starting pitcher. Koslo
pitched four innings of relief ball
Sunday and was slated to work
today but was side-tracked for
Iott who joined the club just be
fore game time.
The 27-year-old Iott fanned eight
and walked five while the Giants
suj^oorted his brilliant pitching
with a 13-hit attack that included
homers by Walker Cooper and Wil
lard Marshall. The four-baggers
were the 13th of the season for
both Cooper and Marshall and
matched their highest previous
output for a single major league
season.

Each had a one-up edge during
the rest of the morning session,
but when they went to lunch with
their wives, who trailed them
around the course, they were all
even.
Although the finish didn’t come
until the 35th hole, the decision
really was reached on the 20tb
and 21st. On the 208-yard 20th,
Ferrier's long iron smacked a
spectator, and the ball rolled far
down a hill, into deep grass. His
second barely reached the edge
of the green, but he ran down
a 25-footer for his par, while Her
bert needed two putts from 18
feet for his halve.
With the apparently - won note
snatched from his grasp, Harbert
stood by and watched Ferrier cash
in on the picture shot of the clash
on the 442-yard 21st. The Aus
tralian’s drive sliced to within a
foot of the out-of-bound stakes near
the equipment house, and came
to rest on a huge piece of can
vas, with a long line of tall, bushy
trees blocking his way to the
green.
Harbert was 70 yards ahead, in
the center of the fairway. Fer
rier was permitted to lift his ball,
and drop it after the canvas was
removed. As he dropped the ball,
it rolled almost to the base of a
heavy bush which impeded his
swing on what already looked like
an impossible shot.
But Ferrier had the course at
tendants move a power mower,
two big rollers, a wagon and an
automobile from his projected line
of flight, - choked up” a five iron,
and hit a terrific hook which
screamed around the row of trees
and came to rest 20 feet from the
pin, 180-yards away.
Harbert, in the middle of the
fairway, stopped 35 feet from the
stick, missed his putt, and went
one down as Ferrier curled his 20
footer into the cup. Harbert even
ed it with a par on the next hole
as Ferrier hit another spectator,
but Ferrier birdied the 23rd with
a 35-foot putt to go one up. He
birdied the 24th, needlessly, as
Harbert’s drive hit a spectator
and went out of bounds for a six.
Ferrier went three up as Harbert
three-putted the 25th from 15 feet.
Ferrier clung to his three-up lead
through the 29th, where Harbert
ran down a 40-footer for a deuce,
but the victor got that one back
on the next hole where Chick was
trapped.
Three down and tluoe to go, Har
bert kept the match alive with a
par on the 34th when Ferrier hit
his drive into the rough and his
second into a trap, but they halted
the next one in par fives to close
it out.
Byron Nelson, also known as
“Mr. Golf,” refereed the match
and he stood with an awed ex
pression for a full 10 seconds aftei
Ferrier's great hook to the 21st
green, then he turned, shook his!
head as if he still didn't believe
it, and said:
“That was a hell of a snot, ive
never seen a better one.”
The tipoff on Ferrier’s unbeliev
able putting touch is that, on the
first 34 of today’s 35 holes, he
never was forced to putt twice. In
each instance, when he missed his
first, he left the ball s0 close to
the cup that Halbert'told him to
“Dick it up.”
'Nelson also said that "in 21
years of golf. I’ve never seen' any
one chip and putt as wTell as Fer
rier did today.”
The big fellow, who suffered a
football injury to his left knee
which forces him to hit the ball
with a definite “sag” in his swing,
toured the 167-holes of match play
leading t0 the title of 25 strokes
under par. Harbert was 19 under
for 170 holes of man-to-man en
deavor.
Davismen Go For Top
At Whiteville Tonight
Somebody, either Tom Davis’ local Legion nine or
Earl Brinkley’s Whiteville aggregation, will do something
about the current tie in the Southern loop tonight in White
ville when the two teams clash in the first game of two
contest home and home series.
Wilmington jumped into a tie
with Whiteville Monday night,
battering Red Springs 19-4 with
Tracy Duval scattering nine Robe
son hits, while the Brinkley crew
was toppled by Laurinburg, 4-2.
Both teams have now won four
and lost two games They ha s'
played twice before, each ripping
out a win over the other.
Tomorrow night, the American
Legion state champion drum and
bugle corps, under the direction
of Robert Berman, will put on some
snappy drills and also concertize
before the crowd at Legion stad
ium when the two teams collide in
their other game. The contest will
start about 8 o’clock, with the musi
cal festivities set for about a half
hour before game time.
Elsewhere in the league, Red
Springs, in third place with a 3-3
record, will invade Laurinburg to
night. The cellar-dwellars will take
on the Robeson county outfit in
Red Springs tomorrow night.
In tonight’s fracas, Davis will
send either Jim Gibson, Charley
Smith or Jere Hilburn against
Whiteville. Hilburn, usually an out
fielder, came in to hurl the local
nine to a 12-7 victory over the
Brinkleymen last June 11. The day
before, Tracy Duval was the los
ing hurler as Whiteville mauled
Wilmington, 10-5.
Gibson and Smith also have vic
tories this year, the former having
beat Laurinburg, and Smith hav
ing taken Red Springs. Neither has
worked for quite a while.
Rudy Williams, who lost to Wil
mington in the only time he’s
faced them this season, appears
to be a likely starter for Brinkley.
He’s much improved since then.
Another candidate who may take
up mound duties for Whiteville is
F. Smith. Cole Jacobs, the star
lefty, will probably not work, since
he went Monday night against
Laurinburg, allowing only two hits
but dropping a 4-2 decision.
Tonight’s probable lineup:

HEALTH DEAN’S TOPIC
GREENSBORO, June 24 — (&)—
“North Carolina’s in the Field of
Health” was the topic D". W. R.
Berryhill, dean of the school of
medicine of the University of
North Carolina, discussed tonight
at Woman’s College at the 20th
annual Parent-Teacher institute,
which has been in session since
Monday night and will be con

Ramblers Recapture
Eastern State Lead
Skipping back out of a tie for the
Eastern State League king-pin spot,
the Masonboro Ramblers socked
Earl Brinkley’s Comets from
Whiteville, 8-4, in Legion stadium
last night.
Snag Allen, Frank Maher’s re
doubtable hurler, let the Comets
down with three hits. They didn’t
score untii the ninth frame. The
win put the Ramblers * full game
ahead of Whiteville.
RUTH TO RECEIVE
FURTHER TREATMENT
NEW YORK, June 24. —(/P)
— Babe Ruth returned to the
* today on the advice
or his physicians for farther
treatment.
“} very tired,” he ex
p ained. “I couldn’t seem to
Bet any strength and decided to
take things easy for a few
weeks.”
The former home run king
was discharged from the hos
pital two months ago after be- '
tag the— for almost three
months uuring which he under
went a serious nook operation.
Two runs in the fifth inning won
the game for the Ramblers. Bernie
Covington singled, Sherrel Strick
land was hit by H. D. Stanley, the
starting Whiteville hurler, and
Ned Council reached first on an
error, Covington scoring. Then Hal
Horton doubled to tally Strickland.
Previously, the Masonlboro out
fit had put across four runs in
the third frame on two singles,
a double, a dropped third strike,
and a fielders’ choice.
The last two runs came in the
sixth on a walk, a double, and an
error.
Hunker Benson was put into the
game in the ninth after Allen
had been called away on personal
business. The big lefty was touch
ed for three runs before Worrell
relieved him.
The Ramblers got nine hits off
Stanley and his firemen, Chest
nut. The former was the loser.

Lumberton Here
Special To The Star
LUMBERTON, June 24 — The
Pirates bowed to Bob Spicer and
the Lumberton Cubs 6-2 here to
night, losing a full game to the
Sanford Spinners, who were crush
ingvRed Springs, 24-6.
Making sure that they would
take this one, the Cubs bounced
Roy Lamb, who was still slightly
bothered by a bum shoulder
muscle, for five big runs in the
first inning.
When the Bucs tangle with
Lumberton a gain tomorrow night
at Legion Stadium, Fred Townsend
or Emory Hewlett will take up the
cause. Game time is 7:45.
The Bucs, who could get only
seven hits off Spicer, scored their
two markers in the eighth inn
ing.
Lamb left the game at the end
of the fourth inning, and A1 Lento,
little southpaw reliefer, was the
apple of Nate Andrews eye for the
rest of the evening, giving up only
two hits to Lumberton while nary
a Cub cossed the plate. Lamb had
■giving up seven bingles to the
Bruins.
After the Pirates had bitten the
dust in their part of the first,
Lumberton pounded five hits off
Lamb to settle the thing in a
hurry. Willard Ehrharat and
Shelton Stanley both singled, and
Elzer Marx walked to fill the
bases. Lamb then walked Char
ley Jamin to score the xirst run,
and Wallace Pearsall singled to
push over the second. Eugene
Cabaniss beat out an infield hit,
and Jamin beat it out for home.
He got there, too, with the third
Cub tally. Ralph Dixon hit safely
to tally Pearsall, and Bill Kivett
Sied out to Poklemba in left, Cab
aniss coming in after the catch
was made.
Spins Crush Robins, 24-6;
Red Sox, Twins Winners
Whatever goes up must come down, but not the San
ford Spinners. Sensing the warmth of the W ilmington Pi
rates on their trail, the Spins turned on the helpless, base
ment-confined Red Springs Robins last night, 24-6, in a
game that lacked 20 minutes of being three hours long.
While all this was going on, tne
Pirates were taking a 6-2 licking
from Lumberton, Warsaw kept
coming back into form with a i-3
win over Clinton, and Dunn-Er
win outslugged Selma-Smithfield,
10-8.
Featuring the Sanford affair
was Hammerin’ Hank Nesselrode’s
14th home run, Bill Stone’s 18
strikeouts and 10th victory, and 25
hits by the Spinners. They climax
ed their spree by rapping out eight
markers in the sixth inning.
Miller lasted through the sixth
frame, and Parnell came in from
third base to finish the whatever
you-call-it for the Robins.
The Red Sox jumped on La
wards for four runs in the fir^t
inning In their victory. Four of
their seven hits came in the first,
proving that two in the hand is
worth one in the bush, or some
thing Manager Ji nmy Milner
drove in three of the runs. Cy
Faircloth gained his ninth win of
the current campaign.
Edwards lasted only through the
third, and the Sox immediately
jumped on Shubeck for two more
in the fourth. They tallied their
last marker in the eighth. Clin
ton collected nine hits off Fair
cloth, but obviously not at the
right times. The Blues were hap
py to see Van Lingle Mungo get
up off the bench and come back
to play first base, even if he did
commit one error. Der Lingle,
who recently resigned but came
back to the fold, was kept on
the sidelines for a 14-day period
by a Tobacco State league ruling.
The Twins banged 14 hits off
four Leaf hurlers in their wild
game. Ken Jackson was prominent
with his three runs batted in on
a trio of hits, includ ng a double.
Komar, a new pitcher in Weed loop
circles, was the winning mounds
man. He relieved Williams at the
end of the sixth. The game lasted
three hours.
Of the quartet of Leaf pitchers,
the loss fell to Henry Koch, who
took starter Mason’s place in the
seventh. The Twins sewed it up
with a four-run rally in the eighth.
