Seixas Likely to Be
Only American in
Newport Semifinals
By th* Associated Press
NEWPORT. R. 1.. Aug. 15.
Unless Vic Seixas can do some
thing about it, the oldest Amer
ican tennis tournament is likely
to have its third straight all-
Australian final.
As the situation now stands
in the Newport Invitational. Ken
Rosewall, 18-year-old Australian
ace, takes on Tony Trabert of
Cincinnati in the first semifinal
match today. Rosewall is a
strong favorite.
Seixas already is In the other
half of the round of four with
Lewis Hoad, another 18-year-old
Aussie, his probable opponent.
Hoad must first dispose of Ham
Richardson of Baton Rouge, La.,
but that doesn’t figure to be any
problem since he’s leading, two
sets to one. in a match halted
yesterday by rain.
Rosewall eliminated another
Australian threat, Rex Hartwig,
6—2, 5—7, 6—4, 7—5 yesterday.
Seixas entered the semifinals
Thursday by beating Mervyn
Rose of Australia.
Hoad looked good enough yes
terday to beat both Richardson
and Seixas in one day. After
changing from sneakers to
spikes, the bull-shouldered blond
took a real toe-hold on the soft
turf and teed off with deadly
accuracy from forehand and
backhand to lead Richardson,
2—6. 6—3. 6—4.
Hartwig, in a display of beef
ing that would have made Leo
Durocher envious, hollered fre
quently about the calls and
bounces but the imperturable
Rosewall never changed expres
sions, not even when he trailed
5 oin the fourth set. Rosewall
asked for a dry racket and
promptly ran off seven straight!

course on the rules. Anyway, it
proved to be a “down-happy”
clock. A penalty counted as a
down all evening and the mis
information may have cost the
Stars a touchdown chance after
they reached the Lions’ 22 on
third down.
There was more than a minute
left, but the clock said fourth
down. It was here, really on
third down, that Dawson was
asked to kick his field goal, mak
ing it 10-3.
John Alderton, another Mary
land graduate, blocked a field
goal attempt by Walker in the
third quarter, but thereafter the i
Lions really began to roll. A 53- j
yard gain on a pass from Layne ;
to Box for the touchdownj
upped the score to 17-3.
The Stars charged back, re- <
turning the kickoff 63 yards to
the Lions’ 17 as Fred Bruney;
lateraled to Sears. Dawson ran
to the 5 and McPhail moved a
yard, but Detroit braced. Fin
ally, Bob Smith intercepted a
pass by Sears in the end zone
and ran it to his 4 and the Lions
went 96 yards for a score.
It was 24-3 when Sears made
his 73-yard punt return to De
troit's 17. On the next play
Dawson scampered the rest of
the way to give the throng a be
lated thrill, although the Stars’
situation was hopeless.

MDW Beats Quantico
To Start Defense of
National Honors
Special Dispatch to The Star
WICHITA, Kans., Aug. 15—
The Fort Myer-Military District
of Washington baseball team is
feeling much better today after
getting over the first big hump
in its quest for a second straight
National Non-Pro Baseball
Tournament, championship.
The first hurdle was a neigh
borhood rival—the Quantico Ma
rines, winners over MDW in the
recent Virginia State tourna
ment. But the Colonials got by
the Marines, 7-4, in the opener
of the 19th annual tournament
last night.
Both these fine teams from
the Washington area rest today,
as the Warner Robins (Ga.) Air
men meet the San Diego Ma
rines, Fort Leonard Wood of
Missouri faces the Mountain
Home (Idaho) Airmen, the Per
ry (Okla.) Oilers meet the Nellis
(Nev.) Air Force Base and the
Springfield (Mass.) Westing
house Electric team comes up
against the Stuttgart (Ark.)
Pumpers.
Wichita Boeing, the Kansas
State champion, joined MDW in
the victory column last night
with a 15-4 victory over the
Springfield (Mo.) Generals.
Tom Poholsky, formerly with
the St. Louis Cardinals, went all
the way for MDW, giving up
six hits, two Marine homers
among them. But Tom got a
homer himself, a three-run clout
which tied the score in the sixth
inning and chased the Quantico
starter. Jack Thomas.
The Soldiers won with a three
run outburst in the eighth, high
lighted by Bob Reitz’ double,
Nick Testa’s sacrifice and singles
by Dick Gidlin and Ray Cattaneo.

Women's Corby Cup Playoff
Matches New Player, Veteran
Monday’s playoff in the Wom
en’s District Golf Association
Corby Cup tournament will be
between two players at entirely
different stages of their golf
careers.
Mrs. D. J. Carrison of Army
Navy took up golf at Honolulu
less than two years ago—never
before having swung a club—and
she is shooting in the 80s and
has a 12 handicap. Mrs. Car
rison’s 92 yesterday was not one
of her best scores, but the wind
that swept the course made scor
ing difficult for all. Everybody
in the class A field was over 85.
Mrs. Carrison’s net was 92-12
80.
Mrs. William Weitzen of In
dian Spring has been playing
for 15 years and had a handicap
as low as 6 years ago in Dayton,
Ohio. But she quit the game to
raise two children and only re
cently started playing again to
any extent. Mrs. Weitzen now
has an 11 handicap and had 91
yesterday for a net 80.
The playoff Monday at Co
lumbia will mark the fourth
straight in a WDGA event,
further evidence that the
women’s handicaps are pains
takingly correct.
Betty Garber’s 86 was not one
of her good scores but the Ar
gyle Club champion was best
of the day by one stroke over
Mrs. Richard Johnson of Chevy

Michigan Swimmer
Seeks Fifth Crown
In AAU Medley
By the Associated Frets
INDIANAPOLIS, Aug. 15.
Burwell Jones of Detroit pur
sued his fifth National AAU
championship today in the 300-
meter individual medley, the
test of all-around ability. He
called the competition the
toughest he ever faced.
The Michigan star holds the
American record of 3:52.2. A
field of 21 versatile sprinters
might produce a new one.
The competition included Ton
atuiuh Gutierrez of the Mex
ican Swimming Federation, sec
ond to Jones last year; Ronald
Johnson of the University of
Iowa; Jerry Holan, the 1952 AAU
100-meter breaststroke cham
pion, and Bert and Jack War
drop, twins from the University
of Michigan. All could beat four
minutes.
Other events today included
the 200-meter freestyle, 100-
meter backstroke, 100-meter
breaststroke, 300-meter medley
race and 3-meter springboard
diving.
Wayne Moore of the New
Haven Swim Club will try again
in the 20-meter freestyle after
losing by six lengths yesterday
to Ford Konno of Honolulu in
the 1,500-meter freestyle.
Konno, the 1952 Olympic
champion at the distance, was
timed at 19:20 flat, well off his
American record of 18:25.6.
New D. C. Swimming Star
Competes at Indianapolis
Joe Morris, 16-year-old Ana
costia High swimmer, will com
pete in the 100-meter breast
stroke at the National AAU meet
at Indianapolis today. Morris,
representing the Ambassador Ho
tel team, will compete in the
200-meter breaststroke tomorrow.
The boy has been interested
in competitive swimming for only
five months, but has won four
first places in recent events, in
cluding a District AAU cham
pionship. He lives at 840 Xenia
street S.E.
D. C. Printers' Nine
Rated Edge in Final
Special Dispatch to Th* Star
BALTIMORE, Aug. 15.—The
pressure was all on St. Paul to
day as the Minnesota team faced
Washington in the final round
of the Union Printers’ Baseball
Tournament.
St. Paul must beat Washington
twice today to take the title,
while Manager Buck Grier’s boys
from the Capital City need only
one victory. It takes two losses
to be eliminated and St. Paul
has one, while Washington is
unbeaten. The teams were sched
uled to play at 11:30 a.m. The
second game, if necessary, was to
follow immediately.
Despite the odds, nobody was
counting out St. Paul. That’s a
determined crew from the Mid
west, as shown by its 7-4 victory
over New York’s defending cham
pions yesterday. The New York
ers, co-favorites with Washing
ton, beat St. Paul, 5-1, in the
opener Monday and the Minne
sotans have had an uphill strug
gle ever since.
The New York shortstop came
up with a case of jitters. The
usually reliable A1 Scacco com
mitted four errors in the third
inning as St. Paul scored five
runs. Don Michelke went all
the way for St. Paul, giving up
eight hits. St. Paul got seven
off four New York pitchers. It
was Michelke’s second victory
of the tournament.

Mrs. J. T. Kaigler of Army
Navy, already a cup winner in
Classes C and B, came within
a stroke of a tie in her Class A

a cinch to win the WDGA award
for the most improved player of
the year. Mrs. Kaigler posted
a 93, minus 12 handicap for a
net 81 for third low net.
Mrs. Carrison, active in sports
before taking up golf, and whose
husband is a low 70 shooter, will
be trying for Army Navy’s eighth

Middlecoff Co-Pacer
After Great Round
By th* Associated Pr**»
FORT WAYNE, Ind., Aug. 15,
—A trimmed field of par busters
playing the 6,535 yards of gulches
and hills at the Elks Country
Club course as though it were
a miniature layout, chased Cary
Middlecoff of Memphis and
Marty Furgol of Lemont, HI., to
day in the third round of the
$15,000 Fort Wayne Open golf
tournament.
Middlecoff, runnerup here in
1951, moved from 23d place in
the opening round into a tie for
the lead yesterday with a bril

Furgol added a 68 yesterday to
his opening round of 63 to stay
in front with Middlecoff at 131.
But Middlecoff, starting with a
69, stole the second round show
by putting together nine birdies,
one eagle, seven pars and one
bogey.
“That was the best competi

NCAA Set to Spank
Irish, Spartans and
Tempe for Recruiting
By th* Associated Press
CHICAGO, Aug. 15—The Na
tional Collegiate Athletic Asso
ciation’s powerful policy-making
council begins calling some dis
obedient members on the carpet
today and, from all reports,
there’s no picking them for size.
Powerful Notre Dame and
Michigan State, the latter win
ner of the mythical national
football championship a year
a*o. are reported to be among
the three institutions up for dis
ciplining. The other is said to
be Arizona State at Tempe.
The NCAA coyly has declined
to identify the three members
whose cases have been laid be
fore the council by the Member
ship Committee, an investiga
tive group.
Director Won’t Talk.
- Walt Byers, executive director
of the collegiate body, has an
nounced there are three schools,
but beyond that says, “No com
ment.”
The names of Notre Dame,
Michigan State and Arizona
State at Tempe emerged from
hotel lobby talk, but were ban
tered around by men close to the
NCAA operations. Several official
sources named them, but declined
to be quoted.
These sources say the punish
ment in any of the cases is not
expected to be too severe. It may
be a case of telling the offenders
to put their houses in order, or
else, permitting them to continue
normal athletic relations in the
meantime.
Sticka Incident Recalled.
Notre Dame’s troubles may
stem largely from the Charlie
Sticka incident. Sticka, a stand
out freshman fullback from
Little Trinity College in Hart
ford, Conn., showed up on the
Notre Dame campus last January
and Trinity officials immediately
yelled “robbery.”
Embarrassed, Notre Dame told
Sticka he was ineligible to play
for the Irish, Whereupon, Sticka
went back to Trinity. But the
case left Trinity boiling mad.
Michigan State has been placed
on indefinite probation by the
Big Ten until it can throw some
light on an alumni scholarship
foundation which supposedly has
been feeding talent to the Spar
tans. Arizona State at Tempe is
reported to be on the griddle for
recruiting violations.
and Gates purchased a bay filly
by Roman out of Sun-Blest for
$28,000, making them the two
highest purchasers of the night.
One youngster, a bay filly by
Nirgal out of Wood Spirit, was
knocked down to Larry Mac-
Phail, former baseball magnate,
for $5,000. MacPhail sold 21
yearlings from his Glenangus
Farms of Bel Air. Md., during
the Thursday sales.
The sale of 29 horses-in-train
ing today will bring to a close
action in the sales ring at Sara
toga for this year.

Legislator
Os Ceylon
Visitor Here
By Ruth Dean
The island of Ceylon, at the
tip of India, is one place in Asia
that isn’t too worried about th*
threat of communism, according
to one of its two woman Sen
ators, Miss Cissy Cooray.
Miss Cooray is in the United
States for a 90-day tour of rural
communities sponsoied by the
State Department’s Educational
Exchange Program in conjunc
tion with the Women's Bureau
of the Labor Department and
other Government agencies and
non-governmental organizations.
In Washington for a briefing
before her journey through East
ern and Western States, Miss
Cooray was a*ked yesterday at
a press conference how her coun
try felt about the Southeast
Asian situation.
“We in our little country feel
we want to be at peace with all
countries.” she replied.
“We have no fear of com
munism. We feel that as long
as we practice and live up to
our religion, Buddhism, which
teaches tolerance, self reliance
and self respect, and non-vio
lence, the communist problem
will take care of itself.”
Miss Cooray explained that 75
per cent of the 8 million popula
tion of Ceylon are Buddhists, the
remainder being Christians, Hin
dus and Moslems.
Though Ceylon is not a mem
ber of the United Nations, it re
ceives help from a number of
U. N. specialized agencies which
are doing much to raise its eco
nomic status and solve its food
production problem, Miss Cooray
said.
Erection of a new power dam,
the Galoya Valley Project, with
the assistance of United States
engineers, has also helped to off
set a serious irrigation problem,
Miss Cooray reported. The plan
calls for irrigation of 100,000
acres of riceland, she pointed out,
and already 70,000 are under
cultivation.
A gift this year of 300 tractors
from Australia, to be used on a
co-operative basis, is also prov
ing a valuable aid to inceased
food production, she added.
A pioneer for 30 years for im
provement of rural women’s liv
ing conditions, Miss Cooray is
interested in studying what
country women are doing in this
country'. '
Her first stop will be the little
’ community of Candor in Tioga
j County, N. V. She will spend
next week as the guest of 4-H
groups there. She is particularly
interested in home economics
and farm community projects.
The remainder of her United
States visit will include inspec
tion of institutional work for the
deaf, blind and crippled, child
care centers, Indian reservations
and the Frdhtier Nursing Service
in Kentucky.
Fall Wedding
Is Planned
Mrs. Henry George Spence of
Menard. Tex., announces the en
gagement of her daughter Mary
Josie to Lt. Comdr. Bushrod
Washington Hopkins, son of Mr.
and Mrs. Matthew Smith Hop
kins, sr., of Brinklow, Md. A
fall wedding is planned.
Miss Spence, daughter of the
late Mr. Spence, was graduated
from George Washington Uni
versity and is with the United
States Tax Court. Comdr. Hop
kins is presently on a world voy
age in the Merchant Marine.
Visiting Family
Mr. and Mrs. Oeorge Soarla,
formerly of Washington, arrived
here yesterday from Phoenix,
Ariz., where they have made
their home since their marriage
in 1947 They will be here for a
month and will stay with Mrs.
Scarla’s parents, Mr. and Mrs.
Dennis Kimer.
