1.954 U. S. Negro titleholder, was

Philadelphia pro fired a torrid first
ound nine-under-par 03 Wednes-
day over the wide open, 6,428 yard
No offficial course record has
oeen established here because

quently revised into par 72.
But Sifford's (53 equals the inaik
first set by Ed (Porkv) Oliver at
Scarboro, Ont., in 1947 and match-
ed last year by Bob Rosburg of
San 1 rancisco, Calif.
The weatherman predicted rain
and high winds which observers
agreed would make the course "too
siow for any more 63's."
Sifford, who used to caddy for
such renowned pros as Ciayton
Haefner, Johnny Palmer and Gene

HOLLYWOOD «.I!>— On July
12, 1954, I was a production plnnner
at an automobile factory in Berk-
eley, Calift'., 1 had been a political
scicne'e major at the University of
Chicago and the only professional
job of writing 1 had held down was
briefly for an encyclopedia com-
(Jn July 13, 1954, 1 was writing
for the George Gobel television
I had an office at the glamorous
pastel blue NBC building in Holly-
wood, I could >;et a table at the
Brown Derby, I was part of the
fast-moving world of show busi-
People often ask how I came to
make this abrupt and unsual
In the winter of 1948 1 was
studying politcial science for a doc-
tor's degree at the University of
Chicago under the G I bill following
I relations with a view towards
decided to specialize in internat-
niy release from the Army. I had
ional relations with a view to-
wards either teaching or entering
government service. I had graduat-
ed from the university in 1937 and
had wandered through various jobs
such as a factory helper.
One evening 1 was lured fo Hel-
sings lounge in Chicago by my
brother-in-law, Edward Finkelberg,
who somehow had the notion that
1 could write for the comedian en-
tertaining there. The comedian
was George Gobel, and his perfor-
mance overwhelmed me.
I remember the first story he
told was the "hub cap" routine.
It impressed me as a gem in the
best tradition of American humor.
My brother in law introduced me
to George as a prospective writer,
and George, with his usual gentle
tolerance, encouraged me to sub-
mit my works.
Between my studies, 1 began to
write humorous bits for George.
My knowledge of this kind of writ-
ing was less than elementary, and
my first eilorts showed as inuea..
After a few months I finally turned
out a story George liked. He en-
couraged me to travel with him
whenever he bail club dates in Chi-
cago. After a while I got to learn
his routines and, more important,
his approach to humor.
I stayed with my college work
until 1951 but my dubious enthu-
siasm for the academic world had
diminished. My. wife and I migrat-
ed to Berkeley where I worked
irst as an order sendee spervis-
or at a cable corporation. 1 con-
tinued to submit material to
George. When he appeared on the
Saturday night review in 1952 on
NBC, I was gratified that several
written by me.
In July of 1954 David O'Malley,
George's manager, invited me to
move to LosAngles. to work on
material for the forthcoming Gobel
TV show. I have been here since.
Some day, between shows, I may
yet write my doctoral thesis for t,he
University of Chicago. Proposed
subject: "George Gobel Looks at
the Fiscal Structure of Iran."

Lousy Fight Says
CHICAGO <L\E>—Bobby Glea-
son, manager of Cuban Nino Val-
des, the National Boxing Associa-
tion's second ranking heavyweight,
had an easy explanation Thursday
why his battler lost to Bob Satter-
"It was a lousy fight," Gleason
said. "My guy Had a bad night
and he had a good one. I want
a rematch. If lie can't lick Satter-
field, I'll retire him."
Satterfield, who gave away '.VZ
pounds in weight at 183 to 215 foi
Yaldes, nearly punched the Cuban
into retirement in the television
scrap. He won by unanimous de-
cision with scores of 97-88, 98-92
s'.nd 97-93 from the two judges,
John Bray and James McManus
and Referee Frank Sikora.
