Press Doubles competitor dies The death of a competitor in a Press Doubles Tournament match cast a pall over Binghamton's Brandywine Bowl on Saturday. Ronald Stout, 51, of Drydcn was dead on arrival at Binghamton General Hospital after extended efforts at resuscitation at the Walters Avenue bowling establishment. Stout suffered an apparent heart attack as he delivered a ball at a two-pin leave on lane 6 midway in the second game. He fell against the adjacent lane's foul-line detector and suffered a gash ' on his head. Stout had bowled a 204 in the first game, 39 pins higher than his average, as he and partner Lewis Sagcr Jr. of Harford Mills took the lead over Ken Delafield of Endicott and Gladys Wolf of Owego. Kevin Hartigan, a Brandywine employee, estimated that it was 45 minutes before other teams on the 4:30 p.m. sauad resumed their matches. The same establishment had a scare in the tournament's qualifying round the previous week. But the bowler who had been revived by CPR treatment at Brandywine on that occasion was released from General Hospital two days later. His collapse was diagnosed as a gastro intestinal attack, Hartigan said.
