Diana was eighth in the first day's race and won the next two. She was designed by Olin Stephens, who started it all with Finisterre. The only time the U.S. has won the One Ton Cup was in 1952, with Llanoria, and guess who designed that.
The confusion surrounding the distinction between professionals and amateurs in sport was compounded last week in Des Moines, where two amateur hockey players were refused permission to play in the Iowa state semipro baseball tournament because, by semipro standards, they are professionals.
The hockey players, Canadians John Annable and Barry Jakeman, furnished incontrovertible proof that they play in an amateur league, though each gets a salary of $200 a week. Their club, the Des Moines Oak Leafs, is a member of the International Hockey League and in that sport the only players considered professional are those who play in the National Hockey League or on an admittedly professional team.
Their salaries made them too professional for the semipros but apparently would not disqualify them from competition in Olympic hockey.
No man to dodge a challenge, Allen Trammell of Eufaula, Ala. entered the University of Florida at 155 pounds and without an athletic scholarship. He soon earned one as a defensive halfback on the football team and first baseman on the baseball team.
This summer Allen has given himself the acid test. He is working on the public relations staff of Governor George Wallace of Alabama.
