Anthony Spins A Few Records

There was little doubt that Earl Anthony was not to be denied a PBA title. Not off the way the crew-cut southpaw had performed during the winter campaign. And, first crack off the bat in the summer segment of the tour, the gritty Anthony had his championship. It was even sweeter, coming as it did before a hometown crowd in the Seattle tournament.

At the end, Earl's margin over Allie Clarke was 224 sticks, and in his wake were two world and three PBA records. At the end of 24 games, Anthony had spilled 5,825 for one standard and after 40 tilts had knocked down 9,564 for another. There was also a record for pinfall including bonus points, and on his way to victory in the $32,000 event, Earl's average was better than 239.

All in all it was an unbelievable show put on by Anthony and was in keeping with the spectacular bowling turned in during the competition's three-day run. In early play, there were 300s by both Gary Mage and Gus Lampo.
