Hoad Ready to Sign
As Pro Tomorrow

Aaaoelatcd Praia Sport* Writer
NEW YORK. July Lew
Hoad, the Wimbledon tennis
champion from Australia, def
initely will sign a record $125,-
000 two-year professional con
tract with Promoter Jack Kra
mer Monday, it was learned
He will make his pro debut
in Kramer’s Tournament of
Champions starting next Sat
urday at Forest Hills.
Although not officially con
firmed, the news that Hoad
(dans to turn pro came from
$ source that has helped in the
negotiations. Kramer and the
Aussie Davis Cup ace are
known to have reached virtual
agreement on terms.
Hoad will play in two profes
sional tournaments, the one at
Forest Hills and another at
Los Angeles beginning July 29.
and then will join Kramer’s
troupe on a tour of Europe,
South Africa and Australia.
He won’t get a crack at
Pancho Gonzales, the world
pro champion, until next Jan
uary—except possibly In tour
nament play. Gonzales, in
volved in a contract dispute
with Kramer, won’t make the
European tour.
One of the stipulations of
Hoad’s contract will be that
he have a “conditioning period”
with the lesser pro lights be
fore taking on the powerful
Gonzales in the customary
Kramer, who arrived here
Friday from Brazil, said he has
not talked with Hoad.
“I made Lew a SIOO,OOO offer
which still stands,’ 'he said.
‘‘Only I have raised it to $125.-
000 because of his impressive
victory at Wimbledon. It’s
$50,000 more than has ever

ished a plea to clubowners to modify the draft in hope of
reducing criticism on Capitol Hill. The magnates will hear
it when they gather for the All-Star Game in St. Louis.
. . . Max Von McDaniel, sensational Cardinal pitching
rookie, is a cousin of Darrel Royal, former Oklahoma
quarterback and now coach at the University of Texas....
Kippe Brietbardt, who was away from the camp, was
burned up when his tiger, Hurricane Jackson, took off and
ran for three and a half hours in blistering heat. “Jes’
wanted to see how long I could run,” Jackson explained
blithely. Hurricane cannot read, write or punch, but ob
viously he can run.
Dr. Floyd Eastwood, associate dean of student activities
at Los Angeles State College and chairman of the fatalities
committee of the American FootfejUJ Coaches Association,
won some new friends from amort? the fraternity during
the week. Dr. Eastwood strongly urged spring practice as a
means of decreasing injuries. . . . Recommended: Time’s
story on Birdie Tebbetts in the current issue.... When the
State Department suggested hot dogs on the menu when
the Prime Minister of Japan was a guest at Yankee
Stadium for luncheon and a ball game, did the striped
pants set realize that the stadium’s frankfurters generally
are rated the most rubbery in the American League?

BILLY MARTIN, STILL burned up at General Manager
George Weiss of the Yankees for trading him to Kansas
City, now is quoted as jeering: "Sure I was a bad influence
on the Yankees. I hung out with Mickey Mantle and he
wins the triple crown. I hung out with Don Larsen and he
• pitches the perfect game. I hung out with Whitey Ford
and he’s the club’s biggest winner.”
The final retroactive presentation of the TRA Triple ,
Crown award will be made to Mrs. Gene Markey in Decem
ber, honoring Citation’s performance in 1948, but just to
be safe Spencer Drayton ordered a ninth trophy from the
Cartier silversmiths. If Gallant Man were a luckier colt he
would have won it for Owner Ralph Lowe this year. . . .
After finally overcoming the ballplayers’ aversion toward
plastic batting helmets, Branch Rickey’s American Base
ball Cap Co. is reported doing a booming business. Two of
the stockholders are Ralph Kiner and George Sisler.
Casey Stengel is sending letters asking for contribu
tions to the Grantland Rice Research Fund, which will
explore new areas of medical research on asthma. Some
mighty big names in sports and other fields are serving
with Stengel on the committee.... Sal Maglie, who admits
that he owes a lot to Adolfo Luque, who died a few days
ago, recalls that when Luque was managing in Cuba and
Mexico he carried a pistol in the shirt of his uniform until
authorities Anally made him check it in the clubhouse.
“But when Adolfo had his gun he wasn’t afraid to use it,”
Maglie is quoted. “Not to hurt anybody, but to scare them
to death. He'd shoot at a guy’s feet, although there was
one time in Mexico I’m not sure he was aiming for the feet.”

WHEN BILL VEECK, running the old St. Louis Browns,
fired Rogers Hornsby because he was too stern a manager,
a beautiful feud was born. Now, after five years, it seems
to be ended because the Raj recently presided over a kids’
clinic for one of Veeck’s brewery accounts. . . . John Cox,
Annapolis’ demon publicist, has just discovered that Navy’s
traditional blue and gold isn’t quite. The Navy blue is 98
per cent primary blue, 4 per cent black. The gold Is 45 per

Ben Hogan isn’t winning as many golf titles as when
he was younger, but in the book department the Texas
Bantam is doing all right. It is said that his royalties for
“Power Golf" are $63,000 to date and now his “Modern
Fundamentals of Oolf,” which appeared in Sports Illus
trated as a series of live articles, is being published by A. 8.
Barnes St Co. 8o confident is Barnes that it will sell
that 200,000 copies are scheduled to be off the presses in
August, marking the largest first printing in the history
of sports books. Hogan's basic theory is that good golf can
come only if the player masters a repeating swing.

And Sievers
Blast Homers
After painful, diligent
searching. Manager Cookie
Lavagetto discovered a pitcher
among his Senators who could
stop the Yankees yesterday at
Griffith Stadium. Trouble is,
Bud Byerly arrived too late,
what with the league leaders
having accumulated 10 runs
before he trudged on the scene
in the eighth inning, and his
effectiveness was wasted aa
New York battered Washington,
; 10-6.
The victory enabled the
h Yankees to retain a 3-game
! | lead over the White Sox, who
| beat the Indians, 5-1.
It was rather uniform dis
tress the Yankees inflicted on
E Russ Kemmerer, Dick Hyde,
Jim Helse and Ted Abernathy,
cuffing them around for 12 hits.
Taking particular joy in the
proceedings was Elston Howard,
who clipped Kemmerer for a
home run and the other three
, for a single apiece as he batted
across four runs.
Roy Sievers hit his 19th
homer, a solo job, in the sec
ond Inning and Faye Throne
i berry contributed his first of
the season with Abernathy
aboard in the seventh. Faye
also Jolted Johnny Kucks for
a double and a single, driving
across three runs.
Fifth Loss in Row
Kucks, shelled for the sixth
straight time, nevertheless
achieved his sixth win as the
Yankees won their 21st decision
in their last 25 games. For the
Senators, it was a sadder story
as they dropped their fifth in
a row.
Bill Skowron clubbed across
two runs for the Yankees and
tied Sievers for the league lead
in runs batted in at 58. Mickey
Mantle, hitless, propelled a run
across with a sacrifice fly and
remains only one behind that
Art Ditmar finished up for
the Yankees, taking over in
the seventh after Throneberry
pumped his homer over the
rightfleld wall, and allowed
only one hit. The Senators got
nine, but didn’t keep the 10,511
customers on the edges of their
seats in the process.
The Yankees owned 7-1 and
10-3 leads to drain any excite
ment from the game. They
scored in each of the first six
{ innings.
Howard, Sievers Connect
Tony Kubek opened the game
with a single to right and con
tinued to second on Jim
Lemon’s fumble. Kubek went
to third after Gil McDougald
filed out and scored on Skow
ron’s single to left.
i Howard lashed his homer
into the leftfleld seats in the
second inning to give the Yan
kees a 2-0 lead, but 81evera
whittled that margin with his
clout into the leftfleld stands.
With one down in the third,
Kemmerer walked McDougald
! ans Mantle. When Skowron in
serted a single, scoring Mc
-1 Dougald, along came Hyde. His
1 first pitch dug into Yogi Berra’s
side. His second hit Hank
Bauer, forcing across a run.
Then Howard singled, dispos
ing of Hyde and scoring
Heise was temporarily a hot
shot, getting Bobby Richard
son to whack a double-play
grounder back at him, but the
Yankees got to him for a run
in the fourth on singles by
Kubek and McDougald, plus
