mighty big one for Salem. Yakima
is now 14 percentage points up on
the second place Senators even
though the clubs are tied in the
won-iost portion of the standings.
Yakima now goes into Eugene for
three games, -while Salem moves
to Tri-City for as many, two of

Yakima and Lewiston get together

Then Maderos smashed into the

Rookie San Francisco quarter

from Michigan State, had taken
the49ers on a 62-yard touchdown

Huggins Takes
First Flight
Pat Miklia won the Salem Golf
Club championship - tournament
Sunday by defeating Cliff Fllis 2
up
in their 36-hole finals match
at the SGC.
Miklia was 1 up going into the
final hole and Ellis had a chance
tq tie him. But Ellis met nothing
but trouble on that last bole,
starting with his tee shot, and
finally conceded the match to
Miklia.
Hoggins Roots De Amend
The two championship finalists
played in a foursome with the two
finalists in the first flight, which
was won by Chuck Huggins over
Bob DeArmond by a lop-sided 10
and 6. Huggins played the best
round of the day at SGC. with his
putting being specially sharp, and
ended even with par. The first 18
holes of the first flight were close
but then Huggins pulled away
from his opponent.
In the title match, Miklia was 3
up at the end of the first 18 but
he lost that lead finally on the
26th hole when Ellis' ball rolled
to the pin and bounced away
about three inches in what might
have been a hole-in-one.
Miklia Regalas Lead
But Miklia birdied the 27th to-
go 1 up again, won the next hole
to go 2 up and stayed there until
the 31st when Ellis again cut the
lead to only one. Ellis evened the
count on the 34th with another
birdie but Miklia took the 35thJ
with a par and that all but ended
the match.
The victory was the first big

tournament, furgol missed a
6-foot putt for a bogie that enabled
the 20-year-old Califorman to claim
the victory.
Both were tied at the end of
72 holes with four-under-par 2R4s,
and immediately stepped off into
.the sudden death play. It was the
highest winning stroke total of any
tournament winner this year.
Rosburg, noted for hsi fine put
ting, needed only a six-inch putt
for his par after getting on the
green in two shots.
Furgol, 37-year-old professional
who won the 1954 National Open
crown, out-drove Rosburg and put
his second shot 25 feet from the
pin just off the green. He chipped
six feet past the cup and failed
to sink his first putt. Second place
was worth $2,200 for Furgol.
Jack Fleck, of Davenport, Iowa,
came within inches of making it
a three-way playoff but missed a
short putt on the 16th hole and
took third place, worth 11,700.

Woman Makes
Catalina Swim
AVALON, Calif., Sept. 2 tin A
39-yaar-old mother today became
the first woman on record to swim
the 21 miles from the mainland
to Catalina Island.
Mrs. Daisy Murchie stepped
ashore at 10:45 a.m. (PDT) after a
15 hour, 40-minute crossing. Sho
had started from Marineland. on
the mainland's Palos Verdes Pen
insula, at 7:05 last night.
The time bettered by nearly an
hour and a half her previous
crossing from the island to the
mainland in 17 hour. 4 minutes
in September 1955. At the time
Mrs. Murchie was the only femi
nine conqueror of the tricky chan
nel besides Florence Chadwick.
Two days later Mrs. Amy Hiland,
35, of Long Beach swam from is
land to mainland.
That is the popular route be
cause of favoring tides. Tom Park,
32, Lakewood, Calif., machinist,
set a channel record of 9 hours,
10 minutes last June IB from
mainland to island. He said he
was the second man to make it in
that direction.
Mrs. Murchie, it 112-pound Long
Beach ' housewife, consumed hot
soup, coffee and honey brought to
her on a small skiff during tho
overnight grind. Attendants said
several schools of sharks had to
be dispersed. Her husband, Al,
was aboard an accompanying ves
sel. Mrs. Murchie has a son,
Darrell, 19, aboard the USS Hor
net, and I daughter, Patricia, 17,
