   Racine Journal Times (Newspaper) - June 2, 1941, Racine, Wisconsin                                TWELVE THE RACINE JOURNAL-TIMES, MONDAY AFTERNOON, JUNE 2, 1941. Beauford Melik Ties Kilbourn Mark of 66; LeRoy May Has 67 May Misses Short Final Putt to Miss Sharing Course Record; Meadowbrook, Racine Country Club Members Busy Beauford Melik, Racine county-medal play champion in 1937 and again in 1939, set a sizzling pace for Racine and Milwaukee district golfers Sunday afternoon when he tied the course record at Kilbourn Country club with a 32-34-66 on the par 71 layout while playing with Rudy Jensen and Mrs. Melik and Mrs. Jensen. Melik's 66 came only a few hours after LeRoy May, state junior champion in 1935, shot a 67 while playing with Dr. Henry Kieren, Earl McClure and Kenny Christopherson. The course record was first set by Don Elliott, then a Marquette university student from Milwaukee, in 1933. Ray Billows, former Racine golfer who now plays out of Poughkeepsie, N. Y., tied the record in 1935 while winning his third straight county title. Hank Gardner, Tripoli pro, tied it again in 1939. Six Birdies. Yesterday, Melik was over par only once with a bogey on No. 16. Michigan Wins Baseball Title Iowa Defeats Badgers Twice to Take Second BIG TEN TEAM STANDINGS Iowa Illinois Indiana Wisconsin ...

CHICAGO, June 2.-VP)-Two games remain to be played in the Big Ten baseball campaign, but neither can affect Michigan's rat-1 ing as the championship team. Coach Ray Fisher's squad clinched the title with a double conquest of Northwestern last week, 12-4 and 9-7, giving the new titlists a record of 10 victories in 12 games. Only Illinois and Indiana were able to whip Michigan, which evened the count with both nines. Two Games Remain. All conference teams have completed their schedules except Iowa and Ohio State which engage in a two-game series at Columbus Friday and Saturday. The outcome of this setto will determine whether Iowa wins second place and whether the Buckeyes stay in second division or finish in the first five. Iowa won two. contests from Wisconsin last week, 4 to 0, and 6 to 1. The Badgers garnered a total of seven hits in both engagements. Minnesota also won a pair, trampling Chicago, 8 to 3 and 6 to 5. The losses were the 11th and 12th for the Maroons, leaving them victoryless for the entire season. Illinois and Northwestern were co-champions last season.

Sport News Notes � Nilo's Tavern slowpitch team �won from Covered Bar of Milwaukee in an exhibition game, 12-5. Next Sunday- the teams will play a return game at Milwaukee.* Mrs. Mann Sees Youngsters Improving HOUSTON, Texas, June 2.-(IP) -Mrs. Russell Mann, the trans-Mississippi champion, rang the alarm bell today for women who dominate the game of golf. "Our number is up," she said after being carried to the thirty-sixth hole Saturday in her finals match with Mary Agnes Wall, 22-year-old stylist from Menominee, Mich. "There, are several of these kids playing today who will beat the socks off all of us in a few years. In fact, they may do it just any time now. Speaks at Park Harry Stuhldreher, athletic director and head coach of football at the University of Wisconsin, will speak tonight at an athletic dinner at Washington. Park high school. Stuhldreher spoke in Racine earlier in the school year when he appeared at the annual all-city football dinner. Park's dinner tonight will honor its sports lettermen with the championship basketball team and championship tennis team sharing honors with the football players, track men and golfers. Texas Course Is a Puzzler Some Believe 285 Will Win Open But Others Disagree FORT WORTH, June 2.-(IP)- The Colonial club course, over which the forty-fifth U. S. open golf championship will begin Thursday, is the "youngest" course on which the oldest open tourney in the country ever has been played. To the advance forces of the 172-man field which will seek the title, it also appears to be somewhat of an enigma. There   could   be   no   sharper cleavage in opinion than there is on the question of how this 7,035 yard course is going to play. Each Has Arguments. Half the experts, including Hor-ton Smith, Paul Runyan and Dick Metz, say a final score of 285, five over par, will look very good. The other half, including defending champion Lawson Little, Craig Wood and Jug McSpaden, feel that a man who hits a hot streak for four rounds is going to better Ralph Guldahl's championship record of 281 and may do it by as much as six or seven strokes. Each side has potent arguments. The 285 contingent points, among other things, to the narrow fairways and the matted, rough, clumped trees, ravines and gullies which border them. The boys who say the winner will be an all-time record-breaker argue that narrow fairways never stop a good pro when he's in stride and that, while some of the holes are tough, there are at least seven on which birdies shouldn't be hard to get. Texans Rate High. One thing is sure, the "eyes of Texas," and the entire southwest really are going to be on this tournament, first open ever played south of the Mason-Dixon line. You can't blame the southwest-erners, either, for when they start reeling off the names of crack pros who have come out of Texas, Arkansas, Oklahoma, Missouri and Kansas, it reads like a golfing "Who's Who." Texas alone has Hogan, Byron Nelson, Jimmy Demaret, Lloyd Mangrum and Guldahl for native sons, and Harry Cooper as an adoptee. The other four have contributed among others, Dick Metz, McSpaden, Runyan, Smith, Leonard Dodson, Ed Dudley and Ky Laffoon. Naval Academy Sends Men to Central MILWAUKEE, June 2.-(IP)- For the first time in 16 years the United States naval academy, at Annapolis, will send representatives to the annual central collegiate conference track and field championships at Marquette university next Friday. Officials said entries had been received for Capt. Ed Hahnfeldt, navy weight man who has tossed the discus 164 feet, and Eric Hop-ley, sprinter. Kahnfeldt's only loss in the discus this year was to Indiana's Archie Harris, whom he will meet here in the 3-C classic. Badgers Close Season With Luther College MADISON, Wis., June 2.-(U.R)- The University of Wisconsin baseball team, which closed its .'Big Ten campaign by dropping a doubleheader to Iowa during the week-end, ends its season today against Luther college at Decorah, Iowa. The Badgers posted a conference record of five victories and six defeats. Michigan clinched the Big Ten title with 10 wins and only two defeats. Elks Defeat Rockford, 5 to 1; Thompsons Beat Dairies, 8-3 Champs Regain League Lead Sports Roundup By EDDIE BKIETZ NEW YORK, June 2.-(IP)-You can get even money a Texan will win the open gclf tourney this week-that is, Ben Hogan, Jimmy Demaret, Byron Nelson, Ralph Guldahl or Lloyd Mangrum. . . .

Secretary Ickes' hint that night baseball might be curtailed in order to conserve power for defense industries brought this comment from Larry MacPhail: "The majors would survive but the move would completely ruin baseball in the minors." One-Minute Interview. Jess Neely: "I don't know if my high-scoring back, Bob Brum-ley, will be drafted. . . . But if anybody gets up and testifies Bob hasn't got any dependents, they are mistaken. . . I know of some coaches out at Rice that can be placed in that dependents class, and no fooling." People and Things. The Chicago Defender, the big Negro weekly, is conducting a survey on whether Joe Louis should retire. . . . Bill McKechnie, who is as wise as they come, says the principal asset of a good relief pitcher is control. . . . Right now everybody is talking about next month's all-star game.

The select list out of the 170 will go after the biggest prize in golf includes three Texans, the present champion and the biggest question mark in golf. They are reading from left to right, Ben Hogan, the long-hitting little fellow; Byron Nelson, former open title-holder; Jimmy Demaret, the third Texan; Lawson Little, defending . champion; and Sam Snead, possessor of the sweetest swing in the business. Snead Gets Jitters. Prof. Doyle has made each of the five of them eight to one, meaning that if you risk one dollar on any of them you will get eight in return if your man comes home the winner. The professor once confided to your agent that he put considerable emphasis on "heart" when he set the odds on a game as unpredictable as golf. By that he means the boys who have the best chance of winning are the ones who can keep their nerve during that last, hysterical 18 holes on Saturday afternoon, when the mob is yapping at their heels, when they have to shoot down narrow lanes cleared through the gallery and when gold and glory ride on each curling putt. The fact that Snead has missed the boat on the open so many times has led many to contend that he will never win it Their argument is that he gets the leaping jitters when the heat is turned on. But Prof. Doyle has so much respect for Sammy's honey-smooth swing that he has put him up among the big five. There can't be much argument'about the other four-they have the shots and they have the heart Demaret, Hogan and Nelson will be playing on familiar ground among friendly faces. Little is a tough competitor jand the only thing working against him is the. fact that he won it last year and has to buck the law of averages.
