Loosening Up at Prince Georges
After putting out on the 18th green at Prince Georges Country
Club the pros would walk up the short hill to the clubhouse and
head for-the grillroom to repair worn tissues before playing another
nine holes or practicing. At about 2 o’clock in the afternoon the
joint was jumping.
Sam Snead had played 18 holes and was
out on the course again, but Pete Cooper was
sitting at a table attacking a chopped sirloin
steak and he seemed to be the center of atten
tion He’d just shot a 67, including a 30 on the
front nine holes, in a tuneup for The Washing
ton Star Open.
••Or Pete, he just burned up the course,"
verified A1 Smith, one of the most promising of
j the younger pros. “I was playing with him."
Eric Monti and Fred Hawkins, two more young
sters, nodded in agreement,
Cooper only smiled and said, ‘‘My putter
was hot for a while, that’s all.” He's older than
francii stans. his table companions and until last winter, when
he won the St. Petersburg (Fla.) Open, he was comparatively
unknown nationally. . . „„ .
• Get a load of that start.” Smith pointed out. Here it is—
3, 3. 3, 3, 2. That's four birdies and an eagle and at the end of five
holes the guy's 6 under par.”
In the Grill, Harrison's in Charge
A man wanted to know if anybody had shot a 30 on the front
side at Prince Georges before and A1 Houghton was summoned to
answer "8ure.” said Al, ‘‘but not in the tournament. I think
Snead and Skip Alexander did it. And Spencer Overton.”
“How about Houghton?” a man asked.
“And Houghton,” beamed the silver-haired pro. "Once upon
a time.”
Over in a corner Lloyd Mangrum was playing gin rummy,
paying no attention to the rest until Dutch Harrison burst into the
room. Dutch probably is the funniest man on the tournament trail.
Even Mangrum smiled as he played cards when Harrison began
talking with that Arkansas twang.
"When you make those pairings, Houghton,” he called, “I want
to play with you. Al’s my meat, fellows—old Dutch s. ’
“There’s the guy you play,” Houghton answered, pointing to
Jack Isaacs, the good pro from Langley Field.
"No. sir.” sang out Harrison. “He’s been nibbling at me too
■such already. He's tough.”
Joe Kirkwood, Jr., Becomes on Added Starter
The room began to thin out as the players pushed back their
•hairs and began to return to the course *r the practice areas.
Most of them concentrated on the putting green, stroking the ball
toward the cups or standing off and chipping. Jim Ferrier, the big
Australian, accompanied by his wife, dumped a bag of balls on the
ground and began chipping toward a cup 50 feet away.
“I guarantee he’ll sink one of those,” muttered Maury
Fitzgerald, the golf writer. "He’s-a wonder at chipping.” Fitz was
a good prophet. Perrier's fourth shot rimmed the cup and would
have stayed inside if his caddie had pulled out the pin.
Off in the distance a crowd was moving and nobody had to be
told that Snead was the magnet, but there were plenty of stars for
everybody. A surprise entry was Joe Kirkwood, jr., winner of the
Phlladelpb'% Inquirer Open and the Joe Palooka of the movies.
And there were Herman Kaiser. Bob Hamilton. Fred Haas. Jr.;
Toney Penna, Buck White, Ed Furgol and George Fazio, among
others.
- Right Out of a Trophy Case
Cooper dropped some balls on the putting green and began
dropping them into the cup from 6 feet with monotonous regularity.
He was using an old, rusty, wooden-shafted putter, which looked
as if it had been token out of a trophy case at St. Andrews.
“Probably came out of a trophy case, at that,” Pete commented.
“Best putter I ever used, though. Gave a club member at Ponte
Vedra a whole, brand-new set of irons for this putter.” The wood
was dark and dry and the 40-year-old butter-knife shaped blade
was so rusty that “Made in Scotland” barely could be read.
“Real good investment,” said Cooper. “First crack out of the
box I won the St. Petersburg Open and this putter did it.
That was a tournament to remember. Cary Middlecoff was
leading and Cooper, teeing up for the last time, needed a birdie 4
to tie. He banged two long shots to the green, pulled out his rusty
putter and went for the eagle. The ball had eyes and Cooper had
; wdn his first major tourney and $3,000. ___

Face A's Clever
Fowler Tonight
By Burton Hawkins
Dick Fowler will confront, the
INats tonight and Clark Griffith's
employes like that as much as
caressing a cobra. Philadelphia's
Fowler will be trying to record a
seventh auccesive victory and
Washington's Jittery athletes have
displayed no streak-snapping ten
dencies, including their string of
three losses.
Fowler, who has won seven
games and lost three, has de
veloped a knuckleball since the
Nat* last raced him on April 23.
Then without the. aid of a butter
fly ball' which has fetched him
six straight wins, ba left the
premises at the end of biX innings.
He left with a ld-0 lead and a
three-hitter in his grasp to save
his talent for more formidable
foes.
Against the Athletics, Manager
Joe Kuhel will counter with .Tee
Haynes, who has been shelled
from the mound in each of his
four starts. Haynes, who owns a
1-3 record, will be trying for his
first triumph in more than five
weeks.
Dente, Kozar Slip A Held.
The nerovus Nats, who have
lost six of their last seven games,
sabotaged Lloyd Hittle in the sev
enth Inning last night en route
to a 7-4 defeat by Philadelphia.!
Shortstop Sam Dente and Sec
ond Baseman A1 Kozar bobbled :
double-play grounders in that in-1
ning when the A's came up with i
four unearned runs.
Carl 8cheib, walloped in his last
six starts, thus emerged a winner
despite the Nats’ 11 hits, includ
ing a home run and triple by Ed
! Stewart and a double and two
j singles by Clyde Vollmer, restored
j to the lineup against right-hand
j pitching.
i Philadelphia grasped a 2-1 lead
against Ray Scarborough, who
, was requested to leave in the fifth
| inning when he yielded a single
j to Scheib. hit Taft Wright and
walked Ferris Fain and Sam
Chapman.
Dick Welteroth permitted an
other run in the sixth, but the
Nats locked the score at 3-3 in
! their sixth on Stewart s triple,
| Vollmer's double and Kozar’s
single.
A's Seal Win in Seventh.
Fain opened the seventh with
a single and went to third when
Dente booted Chapman's ground
er. Fain was trapped between
third and the plate on Hank Ma
jeski's grounder to Sherry Rob
ertson. but Kozar then muffed
Elmer Valo's grounder, filling the
bases. Singles by Nelson Fox and
Mike Guerra, plus Scheib's fly.
fashioned four runs.
Stewart pumped his fifth homer
of the year over the rtght-lleld
wall to start the Nats’ eighth.
The Nats loaded the bases with
two out. but Pinch-Hitter Sam
Mele popped out._

Di Mag's $90,000 Salary Doesn't Look So Big Now
By Jock Hand
AuecioMd Pnu Sportt Writ*
The same old Joe Di Maggiof
Three home runs in two days,
l|x runs batted in and a .500
batting average. That’s the stuff
that made a $90,000 salary.
- The mourners who shed a tear
for the pooi New York Yankees
and their fat paychecks for a
crippled star, can toss the crying
towel in the wet wash. The Yanks
kro getting their money's worth
from Joe D.
DI Mag’s ailing heel may slice
a few yards off his private acre in
center field but he's still Mr. Big
with the bat. Ten weeks of fret
ting in street clothes while his
nates led the American League
dpnt dull his batting eye—at
Mist not in Boston.
Up in Tom Yawkey’s Fenway
Park pressbox they sing a song to
the tune of "Maryland. My Mary
land." that goes something like
this:
"Oh, Dominic Di Maggio
Is better than his brother Joe."
You imagine they’re junking
those lyrics today despite brother
Dorn s illustrious .327 average. Joe
has been the whole show for two
days at Fenway.
Big Joe electrified a giant-sized
Tuesday night crowd with a homer
and single in'his first league ap
pearance since he limped off that
same Boston field last October.
That was only the beginning.
Yesterday he hammered two
homers, one with two men on
base, drove in four runs and per
sonally accounted for the Yanks’
9-7 edge over the Red 8ox.
This was the big series for the
Sox. Rolling fast at home they
had climbed to within five games]
of the Yanks. A series sweep ana
they would 'have been up there
knocking on the door.
Instead they trail the Yanks by
seven games and are back in the
second division. Joe D. is the man
responsible.
Di Mag boosted the Yanks back
in the ball game after Boston
clubbed wild Tommy Byrne from
the hill in the four-run first in
ning. Joe's homer with two men
on off Kills kinder left the 8ox
with a 7-4 lead in the fifth.
After Oene Woodling s double
with the bases loaded tied the
score in the seventh. Di Maggto
hit his game-winning blow off
loser Karl Johnson with the bases
empty in the eighth. The Yanks;
added an extra scon in the ninth
but Joe’s homer told the story.
Jos Page, who saved Allie Rey-l
nolds Tuesday night, pulled nis
sixth victory out of the Are with
three scoreless relief innings after
Byrne and Clarence Marshall
yielded all the Boston runs.
Cleveland averted disaster with
a six-run rally in the last of the
ninth inning to down Detroit «-7
in a night game after they were
shut out 4-0 by Hal Newbouser
in the twilight opener of a double
header.
Bobby Feller let down the swel
tering crowd of 65.243 when the
Tigers knocked him out in a 7-run
fifth inning. But the Tribe
bounced back to win for Reliefer;
Steve Gromek when Pinch Hitter
Bob Lemon doubled off Dtay
Trout with the bases loaded m
the last of the ninth.
