Gives Souchak Easy Victory in Texas Open ly th« Associated Pr*ss SAN ANTONIO. Tex.. Feb. 21. —Mike Souchak virtually re wrote golfs record book In win ning the $12,500 Texas Open with & fabulous 257 for 72 holes —two strokes under anything ever shot before—and moved on to Houston today to throw his power off the tee and finesse on the greens at one of the toughest courses along the tour. The giant from Durham. N. C., who accomplished more in two years than the golfers in 15. completed a fantastic sweep of the records as he romped in with a six-under-par 65 yester day to Vin the Texas Open by a smashing seven-stroke margin. During his four days of shoot ing Souchak cracked the nine hole record of 28, set by Ben Ho gan and tied by Toby Lyons and Tommy Bolt, with a 27; shot a 60 to tie the all-time 18-hole record held by A1 Brosch, Bill Nary, Ted Kroll and Bolt, and then wound up with that 257 that bettered the 259 set by Bvron Nelson at Seattle in 1945, tied by Ben Hogan at White Sulphur Springs, W. Va., five years later, and tied again by Chandler Harper in the 1954 Texas Open. Souchak pulled his money winnings for the year to $3.- 353.33 and today ranks seventh. His first in the Texas Open was worth $2,200. The golf tour rolled on to Houston where the $30,000 Hous ton Open starts Thursday over the 7.200-yard Memorial Park course. Souchak said he faced the tougher course with relish. Freddie Haas, the New Or leans star who plays out of Claremont, Calif., wound up sec ond here with a 264 and $1,500 while Shelley Mayfield of Chico pee. Mass., Gene Littler of Palm Springs. Calif., and Bob Rosburg of San Francisco tied for third with 2695. Haas started the final round yesterday just two strokes behind but he took a 1-under-par-70. Mayfield had a 69, Littler a 71 and Rosburg a 73. Littler still is the leading money winner of the year by a wide margin as he ticked up $996.66 in the Texas Open. He has earned $9,405.66. got.

FUN IN FLORlDA—Charley Dressen, the Washington Senators’ manager, tries his hand at piloting a harness horse for the first time. The scene is at the Ben White Raceway in Orlando, Fla., where Dressen today opens training for a group of farm hands. Senators (Continued From Page C-l.) humdinger worth watching. So I jump the guy in the pinstripe ! suit and wrestle him to the ground. Then I take a look. It's Hal Weafer. an umpire. I apolo gized, real quick. “Meantime Ortiz breaks his hand, connecting with Turner's head so much. Tom's in a crouch, real low. Ortiz knows his hand is broken, so Ortiz kicked him up side the head. They finally broke It up. but that was the best of all time. “Worst beating I ever saw a man take, though,” Clary con tinued, “was a catcher with Leesburg when I was playing with Sanford in the Florida State League. I don't remember his name but he was a big, tough, football player and he racked me up at second base one day. Knocked me into lelt field, and while I was laying there gasping for breath, one of our guys. Sam Holbrook, leans over me and says, ‘l’ll get him if it’s the last thing I do.’ “It goes extra innings and this fellow gets around to third base with one out. We play the infield in and the batter hits one to me at second base. The guy on third had no business trying to score, but he tried anyway and my throw to Holbrook had him. He hit Holbrook with one foot on the shoulder and dug the other spikes into Sam s stomach, but the runner wound up flat on his back, looking up at Sam, who had the ball in his hand. “Sam knelt down over that fellow and pounded that ball into ; his skull time and time and time again. Never saw anything like it. Finally it got so bad that Holbrook's wife came out of the stands and pulled Sam off the guy. Nobody else would stop it. She had to. “Seems like there was fighting every day in the Florida State League,” Clary said. “They only fined you two bucks. Man, you could find yourself a mess of trouble for that price.” Ellis found it more expensive in the big leagues, with the Sen ators and Browns. His scrap with Boston’s Johnny Peacock at Griffith Stadium cost Clary SIOO. Ellis was batting, Peacock mut tered an uncomplimentary re mark. Clary dropped his bat and they sprawled, clawing and kick ing, at home plate. He was fined SIOO, too, when he accompanied Sig Jacuki and Red Hay Worth, Browns’ team mates, into the White Sox dug out to silence a Chicago batting practice pitcher who had been heaping abuse on St. Louis players. “It was kinda cramped quar- ' ters in there,” Clary recalled, “and Jacuki’s first punch winds ■mMgsjmStZnL ■ TODAY and TUESDAY W | Uut/fininarm, mrmsme BLACKWALL & WHITEWALL TIRES \ SAVE UP TO Guaranteed full 18 month, or Ml/)) I(!£&// B 20,000 miles.

The White Sox told us later that he had to throw away his warmup jacket and uniform. They were cut to ribbons.” Clary, now 38, is the proprietor of a pool hall in Valdosta, Ga. He never played for Dressen and never met him, in fact, until the minor league meetings were held in Houston a couple of months ago. “Fact is, I had hoped to coach for Wa’shington and Calvin Grif fith had led me to believe I’d get a chance sooner or later,” Clary said, “but when Dressen was named manager I thought I was dead. I went to Houston as manager of Charlotte and I thought that’s where I'd be in the Washington organization this year, but Dressen and I talked things over and here I am. He's my sort of guy.” The feeling is mutual. Colonial Five Joigs In League Scramble For Seeded Places There will be a little scram bling in the Southern Conference basketball race this week to de termine the pairings in the championship tournament start ing a week from Thursday at Richmond. West Virginia has clinched first place, having gained the top-seeded spot by upsetting George Washington, 83-74, Sat urday night at Morgantown. The Mountaineers have finished their conference schedule, while the other teams have from one to three games to play. The pairings for the tourna ment will be: upper bracket. 4 vs. 5 and 1 vs. 8: lower bracket, 2 vs. 7 and 3 vs. 6. George Washington (7-2 In the conference). Richmond (9 -3 > and Furman (6-3) seem settled In that order for the other seeded places behind West Virginia, al though none as yet has a lock, particularly Furman. Furman plays Richmond to morrow night in its last confer ence game and will be underdog. If it loses, it might find W«feL, currently No. 6 (6-5) in fourth place. The Generals play The Citadel tomorrow and Davidson Friday, and could win both. William & Mary, No. 5 with 6-4. hurt its chances for a seeded place when it lost to W&L Sat urday. 88-67. The Indians play George Washington Wednesday at Uline Arena and Richmond Saturday and home. They could lose both and drop still further. Other teams headed for the tournament are Davidson (6-4) and Virginia Military (2-8). Davidson has Washington & Lee and Virginia Military to play, while VMI also has to play Vir ginia Tech, The Citadel and Davidson. If VMI loses all three, Virginia Tech, currently out of the first eight with a 2-14 record, would move in. Darrell Floyd of Furman re turned to action last week after being sidelined by flu and fat tened his average in the indi i vidual scoring race to 39.1 points a game. William and Mary’s Johnny , Mahoney, who fell off slightly the past week, remained in sec ond place with 26.7. Corky Devlin of George Wash ington was third with 24.3. Rod Hundley of West Virginia, sixth a week ago, climbed to fourth with 21.8. Leading scorers (conference games only); Players. G G F Pts Av* Fyoytl. Furman 71«8 ,*.k 'IT* ;i».i Mahoney.

Already winner over this Na tion's seventh-ranked player, young Ulf—which means "wolf” —starts wading deeper into America’s best tonight when he plays Hamilton Richardson in the semifinals of the National indoor championships. Not many of the 1,200 who saw the tall Scandinavian upset Ed die Moylan yesterday at the 7th Regiment Armory were willing to bet he wouldn’t do the same to the Davis Cup player from Baton Rouge, La. If he wins, Schmidt next would get a shot at the winner of the other semifinals between Tony Trabert and Art Larsen. Finals are scheduled tomorrow. Snaps Moylan's Streak. Schmidt showed a blockbuster service and a veteran’s poise in whipping Moylan of Trenton. N. J., winner of seven straight winter tournaments, 17—15, 6 —4. Richardson breezed past Ricardo Balbiers, a Chilean now living in New York, 6—l, 6—2. Trabert, top-seeded favorite, ousted Bill Cranston, a left handed Yale junior from Los Angeles, 7—5, 6—l, while Larsen, the former National champion from San Leandro, Calif., eliminated Gil Shea, the hard ; court champion from Los Angeles, 6—4. 9—7. » Although three of the United States’ top four players—Tra bert, Richardson and Larsen— are still around, it’s young Schmidt who has captured the imagination of the fans. Tall, Slender Boy. He is a slender, good-looking boy, 6 feet 1. and 170 pounds, with a tennis style which seldom comes out of the cold north. He began tennis at the age of 10, won numerous junior titles in his own country before climb ing to fifth in Sweden’s national rankings. He holds victories over Sweden’s Davis Cup vet erans, Sven Davidson and Len nart Bergelin. j Schmidt, who must return to Stockholm for a year's military service in early June, said he would play the Florida circuit I FRONTS PLASTIC FIBRE COVERS "SS >o"« 6.37 I *y,r HEAVY RUSTIC FIBRE COVERS ”£!' 1995 9.80 I nXm GOLDSTRAND PLASTIC T,’,! 1 <995 9.80 I 136 FULL SETS SARAN PLASTIC "£? ™ 12.74 f Ijgrj I ’MS’ 100% Plastic Lifetime Goldstrand 'S? «'’« 19.60 I I 100% ALL QUILTED PLASTIC ir 7500 26.96 I ,4 ,,T 1955 Silverstrand PLASTIC JZL. 7500 36.76 I I ‘\,T I9SSGARD-LON Nylon Trim «, 5 24.51 I J 1955 GARD-LON Jersey Leather Trim 75 « 32.35 I Many Other Unusually Low Priced Covers.

United States Davis Cup ; captain. i “More fluid and better style than the other Swedes,” com mented United States Champion Vic Seixas, who didn’t play singles. “What a service,” Trabert said. “You can’t see the thing.” Schmidt, who lost a three-set match to Trabert in Baastad, Sweden, last summer, hopes to g€t Tony on boards. “This is my game,” he said. “I’d have a better chance." Fay Crocker Proud 01 Licking Pressure By th« Associated Pros* MIAMI BEACH. Feb. 21 “The pressure was fierce. If there had been two more holes ;’to play, they’d have taken me I home in a wheelbarrow,” said Fay Crocker, the South American dark horse, after winning the $5,000 Invitational golf tourna ment yesterday in a stretch duel with Patty Berg. ■ Scoring her first major victory in the United States, Miss Crocker broke 300 for 72 holes for the first time in her life. Her 296, par-for the Bayshore course, beat Miss Berg by one stroke. The dead-panned gal from I Uruguay had led the tourna ment for two days and she de -1 dared: “It was like being out on the prow of a ship, with nothing but water under me.

C-3 ** THE EVENING STAR Washington. D. C. MONDAY. rEBBt AKT »l, IMS Lions Hope to Belter Standing Tomorrow The Washington Lions hockey team will have two objectives ia mind tomorrow night when it plays the first-place Clinton Comets at Uline Arena. The Lions are hoping to over haul the second-place New Haven Blades in the Eastern Hockey League, and at the same time open more distance over the fourth-place Baltimore Clip pers. Right now the Lions are 13 percentage points behind New Haven, and 10 ahead of Balti more. Baltimore helped the Lions’ bid for second place yesterday when it beat New Haven, 6-2, but at the same time it pulled Baltimore that much closer to the Lions. The Lions figure they have a fair chance of beating Clinton tomorrow night, even though that team seems secure in first place. In their last meeting at Uline Arena, the Lions won to end a six-game Clinton winning streak. w. L. T.
