$50,000 ST. PAUL OPEN
All Star Bowl, St. Paul, Minn., Jan 31-Feb 4, 1967

Salvino Tops St. Paul Foes

Carmen Salvino, of Chicago, had it when he needed it in wrapping up the $10,000 first prize in the $50,000 St. Paul Open.

Salvino subdued Johnny Guenther, 211-203, in the championship match to win his first tourney of the year and his eighth overall.

Guenther, who qualified in the fifth spot, looked like a winner all the way as he swept aside Bill Lillard, 259-200; Jack Biondolillo, 195-194, and Barry Asher, 226-190. But in the championship match, Salvino spared and then struck four times to take a big lead. Guenther kept plugging but just missed when he missed on strikes in the tenth frame.
