Calif., Jan. 14 i(AP).—Sixty-one professional golfers swung into the third round of the $20,000 San Diego Open today, with two veteran Canadians, Stan Leonard and lAI Balding, and California’s Eric Monti, leading the parade of par wreckers. I The three were tied at 135, seven strokes under bar for 36 holes, as play resumed over the par 35-36—71. 6.725-yard flat Mission Valley Country Club course. Just one stroke back of the leaders was South Africa's Gary (Player, winner of the British Open in 1959. Balding, 36. from Toronto,! got into the picture with rounds; of 69-66, and Monti, of Los Angeles, 42, stayed in it with 5 66-69. Leonard Gets Eagle Leonard, from Vancouver,! British Columbia, provided the sensation of the second round. He shot a 32-33—65, high lighted by a 90-foot chip shot for an eagle 3 on the 493-yard 1 10th hole. The record books say Leonard is 45. He admits to 42. ,Un- I questioned is his sixth-time winning of the Canadian PGA (championship. I The tournament Issue here is far from decided, however. Ready and within striking I distance were at least two powerful threats, Arnold Palmer and Billy Casper. They were just two strokes off the pace, each with 69-68—137. Three strokes behind, with the final 18 holes coming up tomorrow, were Bob Goalby. winner of the recent Los Angeles Open, and Dow Fin sterwald, a consistent money -winner, as well as three long shot players in the field. “Anything can still happen here,” observed Art Wall, who got back into the swing of things with 68 for 140. Scores of 143 and under ' qualified for the final two rounds. i Casualty List The list of casualties was im pressive. It Included England's (ace Ryder Cup star, Eric .Brown; home-town pride Gene i Littler, who failed to make the final cut at Los Angeles last, week; two former United States Open champions, Jack Fleck :and Ed Furgol; Bob Rosburg, Jack Burke, and Doug Ford. Paul Harney also bowed out. but only because of a neck ail j ment. Leonard, who knocked off the $lO,OOO first prize in the Tournament of Champions in Las Vegas in 1958, had the most exciting round yesterday. His first nine of 32 was prosaic enough. But after the big ea ' gle 3 on the 10th, Leonard rammed in a 25-foot putt for a birdie on the 12th and sank two 18-foot putts for birdies on the last two holes. “I putted like Jesse James,” the happy Leonard said. He wasn’t so happy with his putter on the 14th. It took him three taps to get down from four feet. He hit past the pin a foot, missed coming back and finally holed out for a bogey five. Palmer, still reminded of his blowup at Los Angeles last week, seemed content with his round. “I hit some real g'bod shots and some bad ones,” he said. Leading scores in the second . round: Allison Given Raise as First Twin to Sign Covington Wants "Better Conditions" From Milwaukee By the Associated Press Four outfielders, Including Bob Allison of the Minnesota Twins, thumbed their noses at "Friday, the 13th” superstitions yesterday by signing 1961 con tracts. And it proved to be a lucky day for Pitcher Don Newcombe, who was offered a job in the Los Angeles Dodgers’ chain af ter being released by the Cleve land Indians. But the Milwaukee Braves and Outfielder Wes Covington found nothing good about the supposedly “hexed” day. Covington, a bitter disappoint ment the last two seasons, revealed that he had rejected the Braves' contract offer and threatens to sit out the 1961 season unless the club meets certain conditions. Money No Object “As far as the money is con cerned,” Covington said, “I could sign my contract today. But I told (General Manager) John McHale there are a few other things that would have to be included." A feared slugger only three years ago, Covington hit .279 in 1959 and only .249 last sea son. Slow-footed, he has been handicapped further by knee and ankle injuries. He wouldn’t say what “conditions” the club had to meet to satisfy his de mands. but said he wanted his release or wanted to be placed on the inactive list if they weren’t met. Allison, a victim of the soph omore jinx last year, was the first of the Twins to sign since they moved to their new quar ters from Washington, where they operated as the Senators for more than a half century. Allison signed in the Twins’ 13th floor office in the First National Bank Building, where Calvin Griffith, club president, has established himself. Bob Got Raise The muscular outfielder re ceived a raise despite a disap pointing season in which he started strongly but finished with a .251 batting average and 15 home runs. In 1959. when he was named American League "rookie of the year,” Allison hit .261 and knocked 30 homers out of the park. The Baltimore Orioles signed Jim Busby and Dave Philley, both of whom were released last October 13, before plans for expanding the American League had been completed. Later, when two new franchises were added to the circuit, the Orioles lost seven players from their own roster and two pros pects from farm clubs. Busby joined Baltimore June 14 from the Miami Marlins and was used as a starting cen terfielder against left-handed hitters and for late-lnning de fensive play. In 80 games he batted .258. Aparieio Is Unhappy Philley came to the club from San Francisco September 2, for his second tour with the Orioles. He batted .265 in 14 games. At Maracalbe, Venezuela, Luis Aparicio turned down a $40,000 contract and said the Chicago White Sox “must be crazy.” The classy Infielder said that was the same salary he received last year. He thinks a raise is in order. Aparicio said he is going to Puerto Rico Monday to attend his father in-law’s funeral. Don Newcombe, who won 27 games and lost 7 for the Dodg ers in 1956 when they were in Brooklyn, has been offered a iob with one of the team's (arm clubs. The 34-year-old righthander talked by telephone yesterday with General Mana ger Buzzie Bavasi, who said Newcombe definitely would re port to the Dodgers’ Vero Beach, Fla., training camp next month. “Who knows?” Bavasi asked. "Maybe he’ll get back in the majors.” Richie Ashburn, beginning his 14th major league season, be came the 17th player signed □y the Chicago Cubs. The 33- year-old outfielder, who batted ' 291 last season, will be an “ex officio" member of the Cub’s management team. He is player representative for both the Cubs and the National League play ers. and as such will confer regularly with the team’s eight coach managing staff. The group will get together at the Mesa, Ariz., training camp Feb ruary 2 to map the season’s strategy.

On paper the unbeaten Buck eyes, seeking their 12th straight, shouldn’t have too much trouble against Northwestern in a Big Ten Conference struggle but there may be an omen in what happened to Bradley, St. Johns of New York and Kentucky. Second-ranked Bradley was upset by Houston, fifth-ranked St. Johns was humbled by St. Josephs of Pennsylvania and Kentucky, a power in the Southeastern Conference, lost for the first time in 25 years to Louisiana State. The Kentucky stumble came last night in Baton Rouge on Friday the 13th, so it behooves Ohio State to beware on the Northwestern hardwood to night. Jerry Lucas, the Buck eye’s All-America, is nursing a knee injury, but is expected to play. Tigers End Lose Streak LSU’s 73-59 victory over Kentucky broke a 7-game los ing streak for the Tigers. Add ing to the cup of woe for Ken tucky's Coach Adolph Rupp was the fact that the defeat marked only the second time In 21 years that his Wildcats have lost two straight confer ence games. Unbeaten Vander bilt took the Wildcats early in the week. Ellis Cooper and Stan Jacobs sparked LSU in scoring with Maury Drummond domi nating the backboards. Florida also come through with an upset in the SEC. The Gators beat Auburn 58-53 be hind Lou Merchant’s 22 points.

The 240-pounder, who almost swept honors for linemen, yes terday became the property of the Vancouver Lions of the Western Interprovincfal Foot ball Union under a three-year contract calling for more than $50,000. To join the Canadians, Brown passed up the National Foot ball League, the American Foot ball League and possible re maining eligibility as a shot and discus thrower on Minnesota’s track team. The Colts reportedly were ready to offer in the neighbor hood of $12,000 or $13,000 for college football’s lineman of the year. But Brown said they did not make a concrete offer in the two talks he had with Colt Gen eral Manager Don Kellett, and the New York Titans never were in the competition. He was the Colts’ ninth draft choice and first choice of the Titans. In going to the Lions, Brown will team up with a Rose Bowl rival. Only last week the Van couver team signed Bob Schloredt, the great Washing ton quarterback who starred in both the 1961 Rose Bowl games against Minnesota and the 1960 victory of the Huskies over Wisconsin.

Jan. 14 (Special).—Tudor Era's unex pected death yesterday at Spendthrift Farm recalls his victory, and subsequent dis qualification. in the 1958 run ning of the Washington, D. C.. International at Laurel, Md. The cause of the turf star's death has not been determined. The 1958 renewal of the race was the one in w’hlch England's famed Ballymoss, the 11 to 10 favorite, finished third to the undisguised dismay of his backers. Tudor Era, then a 5-year-old, ran in the colors of Mrs. Her bert Herff of Memphis, Tenn., who purchased him in England for $15,000. Ridden by Jockey Willie Harmatz. he led the 10- horse field all the way, but his number came down when Jockey Cuban Ballplayers Given Assurance By U. S. Officials By th* AMoclited Preu State Department officials said today the rupture of United States diplomatic rela tions with Cuba will not bar Cuban baseball players from performing in the United ■ States. The diplomatic break may cause some inconvenience, by' forcing Cubans to ro to a third I country to get United States) visas allowing them to enter! this country. But so far as United States authorities are concerned, they have in mind no ban on visas for ballplayers. What Cuban Prime Minister Fidel Castro does is something else. Castro requires Cubans to get exit permits before leaving his country, but Cuban offi cials have said consistently that he will not interfere with the ballplayers. The United States is repre sented in Havana only through a Swiss mission. The Swiss handling United States affairs, however, will not have author ity to issue visas to the United States. United States law for bids issuance of visas by other than United States authorities. State Department authori ties said many of the Cuban players already have visas which will see them through the next baseball season or longer. SECOND DAUGHTER BORN TO BEMANS A small but loud member was added to Deane Be man’s rooters last night when the National Amateur golf champion's attractive wife, Miriam, presented him with a second daugh ter at Suburban Hospital. Mother and daughter are reported to be “doing fine." The baby, to be christened Priscilla Lee, has a 2-year old sister, Amy. Papa Deane will be among those honored at the Touch down Club's annual dinner tonight when he receives the first Arch McDonald Memorial Trophy as the outstanding sports person ality of the Washington Metropolitan Area. Mil- . 1 ■L Ji .... MiL TOM BROWN Getting Top Contract —AP Wirephoto Wayne Robinson, and his as sistant, Dave Skrien, weighed ' heavily with the Gopher star. So did Vancouver geography. Brown is an outdoors zealot. “I’ll love that British Colum bia country,” .he said. “I couldn't be more satisfied with my terms, and I don't expect to have serious trouble adapt ing to Canadian football.” Vancouver plans to use Brown on defense, possibly as a line backer. He is In Washington, D. C., today to accept the Touch down Club's lineman of the yard award. I Howard Grant on Sailor's Guide objected. Grant claimed Tudor ; Era interfered with his mount at the head of the stretch and the stewards upheld him. Tudor Era, according to the official chart, ”.. . set the pace ! under excellent rating and, after dropping in on Sailor's Guide entering the stretch the final time, drew clear under in termittent urging.” More than 40,000 observers, including Keith Dibb, and his father, A. C. Dibb, Sailor’s Guide's owners, were stunned by the ruling. The younger Dibb politely scolded Grant for his action. “In Australia,” Dibb said, “there would be no objection in a race like this, even though the owner was certain his horse had been fcalled. It just isn’t done.” In Australia, he also pointed out, the owner, not the jockey; 'makes the decision whether or not to lodge an objection. Tudor Era was rated a top flight turf horse In this coun try.

York 80 Both Fighters Are Confident of Victory Tonight BOSTON, Jan. 14 (AP).—A late Influx of English money narrowed the odds as fight time neared for tonight’s 15- round nationally televised bout between Paul Pender and Lon don’s Terry Downes for one version of the world middle weight title. The fight is being carried by the American Broadcast ing Co. and will be seen in Washington on Channel 7 at 10 p.m. Downes, an eager young Englishman with a swarming, two-handed style, continued to talk a big fight as he headed into the most important match of his four-year professional career. “I’m confident I can beat him,” the 24-year-old former United States Marine said. “If I didn’t think so I wouldn’t be here. I’m in great shape and I think I’m too strong for him.” Pender, a crafty, clever strategist whose title is recog nized in New York, Massachu setts and most of Europe, Is quietly confident, almost casu ally so. Odds Drop Quickly “I'll win.” the 30-year-old veteran predicted of his second defense. “I don’t know wheth er it will be a knockout or a decision, but I’ll win." The early line agreed: 12-5 on the two-time conqueror of Sugar Ray Robinson over the on-rushing challenger. Then the cocky, likable Londoner be gan his workouts. The odds quickly went down, and fluctuated between 9-5, 8-5, then dipped to 7-5 with the arrival of some fans from Great Britain. The wise money along dingy Friend street pre dicted it would close still more by fight time. Each fighter is In superb condition. Downes, since his arrival, has been as Impressive las any import In recent years. Pender has put in 100 rounds of boxing, honed his snapping left to peak performance and say he’s in the best shape of his career. Cautious With Right Their styles are completely different. Terry is a walk-in, pressing fighter who likes to wear down his opponent. His record is 26-6, including 21 knockouts. Pender generally is recognized as one of the master boxers of the profession. His stabbing left is his best weapon. Pender once had a solid right, but has been cautious since twice shattering it in the ring. “You can’t fight a guy like Downes with just a left jab,” Pender conceded. “I admit I had a mental block against the right because of those two : broken hands. But we’ve been working on it. bringing it along and I feel better about it now.” He hasn’t lost In five years, and owns a 37-5-2 record. Downes has had his health problem, too—a tendency to cut around the eyes. He said a series of operations has cured that and he hasn’t been cut in 10 fights, the last a decision over Joey Giardello.
