E. J. (Dutch) Harrison, beefy 47-year-old pro from Arkansas, was eight strokes behind going into final round but got lucky as "blind pig picking acorns" on greens while Paul Harney and Ben Hogan faltered, came up with arresting 62 to win Sam Snead Festival with 266 at White Sulphur Springs, W. Va.
Harrison (Stork) Sanford, usually solemn Cornell coach, permitted himself a smile as he watched all-senior crew outstroke Yale by less than foot for Eastern sprint title at Princeton, even went so far as to venture cautious prediction for IRA championships at Syracuse, June 22: "We hope to win."
Augustus (Bibb) Falk, caustic-tongued former big leaguer whose barbs have needled many a Texas player, coached Longhorns to 5-1, 1-0 victories over Texas A&M to clinch 31st Southwest Conference title and NCAA tournament berth. Other qualifiers: Duke, Bradley, Colorado State, George Washington.
