Trotters Increase Edge Over Stars KANSAS CITY, April 8 UP).— The Harlem Globetrotters, as in previous tours with college all stars, are running up a lopsided victory margin against the col legians in their present aping around the country. Tonight the two teams meet in Kansas City's Municipal Auditorium with the Globetrot ters holding a 10-5 edge in games played . Walter Dukes, former Seton Hall center, dumped in 25 points to lead the Globetrotters to an 84-73 victory before 10.326 spec tators at Denver last night. They had a 42-41 advantage at half time. The all-stars’ offensive was led by Tom Gola with 20 points. LITTLE SPORT SCHACHT Continued From Page C-3 dressing for our first game in the Bronx when the word came that the league had folded and the teams were being disbanded im mediately. I was right back where I started, in the Bronx, no less. Soon I got an offer to pitch for the great Metropolitan semipro club on Sundays. Sunday baseball that is, charging admission to ball games on Sunday was prohibited in New York at that time. So the big league teams had Sunday off, and the fans flocked to see the Metropolitans. How did the Metropolitans get away with it? We sold scorecards. We had red ones for 50 cents and green ones for 25 cents, with the holders of the red cards get ting the best seats. It must have been illegal, but the police were co-operative. We had some fine ballplayers on that Metropolitan club, many of whom could have made the big leagues if they'd wanted to take the rap in minor league ball first. Joe Judge, the first base man, and I were about the only ones who were crazy enough to want baseball as a career. We played against some rough competition. The major leagues having Sundays off, they’d get teams together and play us often, and we regularly licked them. One of my biggest thrills ever was pitching against the great Cy Young that season at Lenox Oval. He was about 44 then, having retired from the Boston Red Sox after winning more big league games in his career than any other pitcher. When he lost that day, he quit for good and never pitched another game. (From the book: My Own Particular Screwball, Copyright. 1955. by A1 Schacht. Distributed by Doubleday Syn dicate.) TOMORROW—Success With Newark. MASTERS Continued From Page C-l hit his only poor shot of the day, took six and lost two strokes. Burke put another stroke be tween them with his birdie on 17. Boros, who you never can count on to be good or bad, said the difference between his 71 and just an ordinary round was three real good shots on the back nine. Ben Hogan is a contender at 73 after playing just fair and three-putting twice, but that’s easy to do here. Hogan couldn’t get over the fact that Burke didn’t three-putt a green. It was astounding how some of the real solid players were in the high 70s and low 80s. Lew Worsham and A1 Besselink both shot 80 and Bo Wininger 81. The 77 and 78 bracket was filled with names of players who have been 67 and 68 on most of the other courses on the winter tour. Billy Joe Patton, the amateur who was the big hero here and in the National Open last year, started with a stampeding gal lery of rabid fans and ended up almost alone with a fat 79. He was in the woods five times in the first eight holes but wasn’t making the recoveries that shoved him to fame a year ago. He did birdie the ninth, adding it to his four straight birdies there last year. NOTES Columbia Club’s Freddie McLeod and Jock Hutch ison played the round in 2 hours and 20 minutes. They were first off the tee and romped around. Mr. Mac shot 91 but he didn’t play that bad. He four-putted and three-putted six others. He paired both par-fives and both par-threes on the back nine and also paired the fifth, toughest hole on the course. Jock shot an 83. Lew Worsham shot 80 but only moved the ball 78 times. He toot two whacks in the mud on the 12th and finished with six on the par three—Patton and Harvie Ward, playing part ners, managed to use up 13 strokes between them on the par four 11th. Patton was in the water once and Ward twice. . . . Yesterday's pin placements were such that 70 and 80 foot putts were not uncommon. Fame is fleeting department— National Open Champion Ed Furgol and National Amateur Champion Arnold Palmer were playing partners and at one point on the course had only their caddies accompanying them, not another soul. Wor sham, the Oakmont pro, and D'Agata and Macias To Fight for Title MILAN, April 8 UP). —Mario D’Agata* Italy’s deaf mute ban tamweight champion who was seriously wounded in a shoot ing two months ago, has agreed to meet Raul (Raton) Macias of Mexico in a title fight at Los Angeles. Macias is recog nized by the NBA as world bantamweight champion. Oakmont club member Sam Parks, the former National Open champion, will play off today for the Oakmont Club title— Augusta Division. Both shot 80. . . . Tony Manero took high scoring honors on a hole from Sam Snead when he took nine on the 15th. There's a four-way tie for the amateur lead between Dick Chapman, Charlie Coe. Rex Baxter, the 19-year-old colleg ian, and Dynamite Goodloe. . . . Bob Toski disappointed with a 78. He had only four pars and no birdies coming back.... Gene Littler had to fight for a 75, going four over par on the first three holes of the back nine. . . . Chandler Harper, the Mid dle Atlantic PGA champion, played the last eight holes in par for a 77. Never was a course as vexing as the Augusta Na tional. . . .
