Palmer sets sights on 'big ones'
By Oscar Fraley
UPI Staff Writer
MIAMI (UPD Pride Is a per
sonal commodity, Arnold Palmer
confessed today, which has no
Two years ago, this being 1962,
Palmer was the hottest item in
golf since Invention o( the steel
shaft. He was the leading money
winner In the game but, more im
portant, he captured both the U.S.
Open golf championship and the
coveted Masters.
All he made last year was
Now wait a minute, Palmer
cautions. "I won the British Open
last year and that's one of the big
There was a time. But not any
more. The British Open today is
strictly for the boys from Koko
mo, the prestige seekers who can't
make It on the big time and go
abroad to knock off a flock of
patsies and trade on the prestige
of the past. But the truth is that
the British Open today attracts
only those who couldn't finish
among the top 20 on the U.S. pro
golf tour.
Prove the Point
Exceptions have been Ben Ho
gan, who won It on his only shot;
Sam Sncad, who captured it the
only time he tried, and Palmer,
who finished second by one shot
in a rain-swept fluke the first
time and went right back to knock
it off. Yet the ease of their ac
complishments merely serve to
prove that it has become a cheap,
grab-bag contest in which compe
tition is at a minimum.
Palmer, despite his rich divot
digging in which he participated
last year, now has come to realize
that he no longer can satisfy him
self with "British Open victories."
"I know that my game has gone
to pot," he admitted after an ex
hibition round over his new Coun
try Club of Miami course in which
he could do not better than finish
in a third-place tie with spanking
new pro Jack Nicklaus. "I've just
been doing too much other stuff.
My game has had to suffer."
This was an admission that he
had become like Oscar of Uie Wal
dorf working at a hamburger
stand; like Eddie Arcaro exer
cising cheap platers, or Picasso
painting murals on the walls of
cheap saloons simply because the
price was right.
Back to Work
"I'm turning my back on all
this other stuff," Palmer insisted.
"Right now I'm going out to get
my game in shape and I'm setting
my sights on the big tourna
ments." There Is one he wants above
all others and a grand scheme
filling out the par-busting pattern.
"If there is one tournament I
want to win, I guess I'd have to
say it was the PGA," frowned the
handsome Pennsylvanian. "That's
because I've never won It, and
it's considered one of the big
"But," he smiled boyishly, "I
want them all in one year."
Meaning that he still entertains
the big dream, that of scorning the
"big slam" nobody else ever has
even thought about.
"Why not?" he asked. "If this is
your business, you've got U dream
of winning the Open, the PGA,
the Masters and the British Open
all in one year."
Starving Now
And Palmer finally has ab
sorbed the idea that nobody, not
even a man with his almost
matchless talents, can accomplish
this fairway feat without turning
his back on the money vaults and
playing as if he was starving.
"I'm starting right now," he
promised grimly. "I'm putting ail
this behind me, the easy living,
the collaring of those beckoning
dollars and the outside interests.
That's in my agent's hands now.
I'm going back to work with the
"It's not as far away as you
might think," he bridled. "After
all, I won the Vardon Trophy last
year with a low tournament scor
ing average of 69.75 strokes per
round. But it's not enough."
It isn't, either. Arnold Palmer
is the man who, according to the
evidence at hand, was born to
replace Hogan and take the next
niche in the line of the golfing im
mortals. He is fortunate to have
realized soon enough that money
isn t the total answer.

By United Press International
A report that the Big Five Ath
letic Conference may take in
! Washington State but spurn Ore-
gon and Oregon State drew varied
reaction today.
The report was written by Ore
gon Journal Sports Editor George
Pasero in a story from Los An
geles, where representatives of
Big Five schools attended a con'
ference with Big 10 members.
Spokesmen for Oregon and Ore
gon State said they had heard
nothing of the report and had
been with officials from Washing
ton State last week In Portland.
They added the report had circu
lated before but had not been
seriously considered.
Pasero quoted Chuck Taylor,
assistant athletic director at Stan
ford, as saying ". . . that's the
way It looks. Our president Is
against It but Washington State
seems to be the one they're look
ing at."
Taylor was quoted as adding,
"We've been battling for the Ore
gon schools. They're the ones
we've wanted all along."
The three were members c( the
old Pacific Coast Confe-ence. The
Big Five is made up of other for
mer PCC members.
Stanford Spokesman Quoted
At Stanford, a spokesman for
Stanford University President J.
E. Wallace Sterling said the
school favors the entrance of all
three former PCC members Into
the Big Five.
"Stanford Is for a larger con
ference," Fred Glover, Sterling's
assistant, said. "We would like to
see all three of those former PCC
schools Washington State, Ore
gon and Oregon State in the
Big Five."
At Los Angeles, Southern Cali
fornia athletic director Jess Hill
commented, "Of course we'd like
to expand. But wo can't talk
about which schools would be in
vited to join our organization."
"I see where Oregon is planning
to build a new stadium," Hill
said. "Maybe the Big Five would
be Interested in them with a
largor stadium. I don't know.
Some people have recommended
Arizona State. But their stadium
isn't very large either."
Dr. Norman Topping, president
oi the University of Southern
California, said it was only a
mattor of time before the Big
Five expanded.
"This whole matter of expan
sion has been under discussion for
some time," ho said.

By United Press International
It's no use, the Boston Celtics
are iiist ton eood.
Even when Ihey try to keep the
score down, they still run up box
car figures.
That's what happened Tuesday
night when coach Red Aucrbaeh
kept his regulars on the bench for
the entire last quarter, only to
watch the Celtic subs do equally
as well in a 136-99 crusher over
the St. Louis Hawks.
The victory was the 30th of the
season for the runawa Celtics,
who liavo lost only five and now

Even though Auerbach yanked
four of his regulars with five min

Boston players still scored in dou

foes in the Rose Bowl.
Nothing has been signed and
nothing will be for the next few
weeks. But the chances appeared
very strong that the two athletic
organizations again would see
eye - to - eye on the post season
classic and agree to another
"open end" contract.
The Big Ten proposed a renew
al of a contract that was sub
stantially the same as it had with
the now defunct Pacific Coast
- Conference in previous years. This
1 contract banned any team from
itlie Big Ten from coming to the
Rose Bowl more often than once
in two years. The Big Five can
send Its champion every year.

sals." Tom Hamilton, executive direc
tor of the Big Five, said he would
offer the Big Ten proposals to the
Big Five Council, which consists
of athletic directors and faculty
"I don't know when we'll meet
to consider the offer," said Hamil
ton, "It probably will be some
time after the NCAA meeting in
Chicago Jan. 10-12."
Predict New Agreement
The next regularly scheduled
Big Five meeting is in June but
it is expected that the decision
will be made long before then.
Hamilton would make no pre
j dictions on whether the Big Five
I would accept the Big Ten propo
sals. But anotner representative
of the Big Five said:
- "I lhink you are on the right
track if you predict that we'll sign
an accord with the Big Ten."

two years notice would have to

Kentucky cans
football coach
after 8 years
tucky was in the market for a
new head football coach today on
the heels of unexpected action by
the school's athletic board remov
ing Blanton Collier from the post
he held eight years.
Collier, under fire from alumni
and fans after a 5-5 season this
year which included a. loss to
arch-rival Tennessee, had three
years of a five-year contract left,
and when no immediate action
was taken at the close of this
season it was concluded that Col
lier would remain at Kentucky.
The decision was : reached by
mutual agreement Tuesday when
the university offered to buy up
the remainder of Collier's con
tract for an estimated $50,000.
Only last month the board had
announced that the rest of his
contract would be honored and
reaffirmed its support of Collier,
Collier, who termed the action
"more or less" of a surprise,
said "it is my opinion that this
is for the best interest of both
the university and me."
"Football has been my life,"
the 55-year-old Kentuckian said,
"ana right now I feel 1 would
like to remain with it if the op
portunity presents itself. I w II
probably relax for a few weeks
before making any decision."
There was speculation that Col
lier, Southeastern Conference
Coach of the Year in his Initial
season with Kentucky, would re
turn to the Cleveland Browns. He
had left a backfield coaching job
with the Browns to accept the
position at his home state uni
versity when Paul (Bear) Bryant
went to Texas A&M.

' An Unforgettable Experience in Sutpensel
! By-
Gene Patterson
Many of my readers have
probably wondered, especial,
ly if they're in any way con
nected with the building
trades, lust why we use the
word "penny" when referring
to the tiie of a nail. For ex
ample, a twopenny nail is one
inch long; a threepenny nail
is IV4 inches long; a four
penny nail, l'i, and so on.
Some explain it as having to
do with the weight of the
nails, but word experts con
sider this view as erroneous.
The true explanation, they
ay, Is that until about 1400,
nails were sold In England at
so much a hundred, and the
price was determined by the
size of the nails. Nails sold
for tenpence a hundred were
tenpenny nails; for sixpence
a hundred, sixpenny nails;
and so forth. When later on
the prlcet changed, the
names remained the same,
