NAMED: JERRY BARBER, 45-year-old Los Angeles pro, who compensates for a caddie-size, 5-foot-5, 137-pound frame with one of the finest putting strokes in the game, as Player of the Year, by the Professional Golfers' Association, following a poll of its membership and sportswriters. Barber, who won the 1961 PGA championship by a single stroke in an 18-hole play-off with Don January, will captain the American team in this week's Ryder Cup matches against Great Britain.
DIED: JOHN ZOLA, 20-year-old Lebanon Valley College halfback, from injuries suffered in a game against Drexel Tech at Philadelphia. Zola was the third college player to be killed this year, the first as a result of injuries sustained in a game.
DIED: WILLIAM FOSTER, 20, a third-string guard for Johnson C. Smith University of Charlotte, N.C., 10 days after he was injured in a practice scrimmage at Charlotte. Foster's death, the fourth and latest of the current college season, is one more than occurred during all of 1960.
