' . .1 ' - ' " 1 .,' ' " - . vJ Let "9 '" I v" X Hulme Wins Stardust Grand Prix ROBERT LIPSYTE New York Times (C ) UM Nn Vrk Ttanea Stmt Scrvto NEW YORK Joe Namath did not stumble over the tips of his mandarin moustache at Shea Stadium Sunday and disappear into the muddy brown field. Instead, to the consternation of sports administrators throughout the country, the Jets quarterback beat the Houston Oilers and led his club to an almost certain eastern division title. By today, it is feared, five o'clock shadows will be lengthening throughout the American Football League as hair, once a private problem among a man, his mirror and his coach, becomes the new public frontier in sports. In simpler days, last year for example, you could always tell an athlete by his crew-cut and bone-close shave. A boxer might not shave on the day ol his fight and the announcers were quick to point out that the reason was not philosophical: A shave leaves many small nicks ready to open under sharp punching. There were exceptions, and they were justified. Joe Pepitone, the Mr. Joseph of the Yankees, wore his curly black hair teased, it was rumored, because he was hiding an incipient bald spot. Wilt Chamberlain wore a beard because he was basically shy with strangers. Ben Davidson had a handle-bar moustache, and since he was 6-feet 7 inches tall and weighed 265 pounds, you could ask him why yourself. Toward the end of last season, the Oakland Raider end broke Namath's cheek, and everyone thought Davidson's moustache looked just fine. With the possible exception of Jockeys and professional basketball players, athletes live in the lee of fad and fashion. According to Namath, he and his team-mates will shave off their moustaches when they "cinch the championship." This could be as early as next week, if Houston loses again, and the Jets beat Oakland and the other moustache man, Ben Davidson. This would be too little, too soon. Just as sports teetered on the edge of an honest, important controversy, the loss of Namath's moustache could throw the decision back to the Lombardi's, the Shorts, the Frank Navarros. Navarro is the bright, vigorous new football coach at Columbia, and he considered the problem of hair with characteristic intensity recently. He would not allow a beard on one of his football players, he said, because of the chinstrap on the helmet. And no long sideburns because of the danger of infection in case of facial cuts. And long hair? "We don't have time to grow long hair, to be side-tracked. We're playing football, we're concentrating. Long hair and beards lead to other things, to lying under trees and singing songs." Navarro smiled and said: "You know, within the group, we don't talk about such things. It just never comes up." Donohue tied for second with 23. But Donohue, of Media. Pa., couldn't get his McLaren-Chevrolet started and had to be pushed off the track. Donohue had qualified fourth next to Hall in the second row. McLaren, the builder of the Group 7 cars used by a majority of the drivers in the race, lost his chance at retaining the Can Am title he won last year when he spun going into turn one on the first lap. V-" JOE NAMATH: New Frontier Trevino Captures Hawaiian Golf Open; Archer 2 Back LAS VEGAS. Nev. (AP) Escaping a spectacular first-lap accident, New Zealander Denis Hulme led from start to finish and captured the $80,000 S'ar-dust Grand Prix Sunday and along with it the championship of the Canadian-American Challenge Cup series. Hulme, who started from the second position next to Bruce McLaren, took the lead immediately when McLaren became a victim of a five-car collision in the first turn. Never pressed throughout the 210 miles, Hulme set a record 113.1 miles an hour race average. He picked up S11.4r0 for winning the race, plus $40,000 as w inner of the Can-Am series. Sixteen cars finished out of 30 that started the race, marred by accidents and offcourse excursions. The most serious mishap came on the 58th of "0 laps when Texan Jim Hall's Chaparral was tapped by Lothar Mot-schenbacher's McLaren-Chevrolet going through turn one. The winged Chaparral flew into the air and both cars burst Into flames. The two drivers were hospitalized, both suffering from superficial burns. Hall also had a broken right leg. Track physicians reported the drivers in good condition. Motschenbacher had been running second and Hall, slowed in the first-lap trouble, was charging to the front of the pack. Hulme didn't even have to finish the race to win the Can-Am championship. He led the series by three points going into the race, with McLaren and Mark Nehru Jackets had returned to India as an American Import by the time halfbacks began wearing them home from the stadium, and sideburns were creeping back up again on college campuses by the time they were becoming visible under major league batting helmets. Last June, the tennis coach at Haverford College gave school officials an ultimatum: Either he would be allowed to bar long hair, beards and moustaches on his courts, or he would leave. All the sporty young deans stroked their beards, decided that the issue must be more ideological than aesthetic, and sorrowfully bade the coach goodby after 41 years. A month later, a few Green Bay Packers arrived at training camp with razor-cut hair, and Vince Lombardl lifted an eyebrow. Grown men stampeded to get their heads skin-walled. i The Harvard heavyweight crew, representing the United States in the Olympic Games, bst badly, and unexpectedly. They had been called "The Shaggies" by those who resented 1 their non-crew-cuts, and 20th century outlook. But Doug Har- I din, a bearded Harvard senior, won the heptagonal crosscountry race recently. I The situation seemed quiet, even ignorable, until Namath's moustache was cited in the gossipy newsletter. Line Back, as another example of Coach Weeb Ewbank's vacillation. Stated Line Back: "Weeb would like to tell Joe to shave It off, but then he'd have to tell Bake Turner, Verlon Biggs and Jim Hudon to shave, too. Weeb decided not to say anything as long as they're winning." But what ripped it for fair was the announcement by the general manager of the Chicago White Sox last week that he would seek to have baseball players officially banned from wearing extreme sideburns, moustaches, goatees or beards. The general manager, Ed Short, was quoted as saying: "Our concern was to keep the proper image of major league players before young fans especially. If we got a league regulation, presumably a club could suspend any violators." "That's ridiculous," said Namath today. "Who tells the little ones it's a bad influence? The parents do." (APVirf phots) wanted to win this one for my good friend Ted Makalena." Makalena, Hawaii's finest golfer who won this tournament two years ago, was killed her in a freak swimming accident in September. Red field Second In Bike Race MIAMI Storey Redfield of Palm Beach placed second and Al Vreeland of Lantana was sixth in the senior 8-mile race of the Florida Federation of Bicycle Clubs Sunday at Tamlaml Airport. A surprise winner was Lou Gonzalez' former champion of Cuba, who came up from fourth place on the final lap. Although he hasn't been riding much lately, Gonzalez moved past Yves Maguere of Montreal, Canada, who had led for three mile laps, Kedfield, Vreeland and protege Roberto Prieto, who had just become 18 and moved into the senior ranks. Prieto finished third, with Duke Reeves of Miami fourth, and Maguere fifth. The winning time was 19 minutes 31 .2 seconds. A total of 88 riders competed. In a special mile handicap race, Sandy Chllds, 10, of Palm Beach withstood a fast finish by his brother Quentln, 13, to win. Terry Bramstedt, 13, a former West Palm Beacher, who moved to Miami a week ago was third. Snag Holmes, North Palm Beach, placed 5th In a senior 3-mlle novice race, and Steve Holmes, 9, was seventh In the novice midget mile." tJ Some observers say McLaren's car was nudged by the charging Mario Andretti who started farther bark in the field in his Lola Ford. McLaren went sideways through the turn and then off course along with Andretti, Chris Amon, Charlie Mayes and Hall. The new six-ll-t Ferrari of Amon and Hayes' McKee-Oldsmobile were unable In rnntinue. Finishing second was George Follmer of Arcadia, Calif., in a , Lola-Ford, followed by Jerry Ti- I tus, Encino, Calif., in a Mc-Laren-Chevorlet; Chuch Par- x sons, Pebble Beach, Calif,, in a Lola-Chevlrlet; Sam Pose, Sha- ' ron, Conn., Caldwell- Ch 'vorlet; McLaren, New Zealand George Eaton, toronto. McLaren-Ford; Jo Bonnier, Geneva, Switzerland, Mcl.aren-Che-vorlet; Richard Brown, Birmingham, Mich., MeLareen-Chevorlet, and Gary Wilson, To-wanda, Kan., Lola-Chevorlet. The Can-Am finish is reversed from that of last year when McLaren barely edged teammate Hulme for the title. McLaren finished second in the series this year with 24 points to Hulme's 3!i. tor in a nightmarish second half for Palm Beach. Palm Beach Coach Capt.

HONOLULU (AP) - National Open champion Lee Trevino bir-died the 15th and 18th holes and won the $25,(100 top prize in the $125,(XK) Hawaiian Open Golf Tournament Sunday by two strokes over sand plagued George Archer. Trevino rolled a long birdie putt in on the last hole, for a four-undor-par 68 in the final round. He took the lead on the 15th hole with a 35-foot birdie putt, which dropped about the time Archer bogeyed No. 17 from the sand trap. That left Trevino, garbed in the black and red clothing he says he wears on pay day, needing only a par on No. 18 to win. He birdied it anyway. Archer was leader after three 4th Season one season at Dunia before coming here. The 2.'i-vear-old back-courter is 5-foot-X, and has lots of power from any position on the court.

Arnold Palmer, after three straight 71s, shot a final round 69 and tied for ninth at 282. Billy Casper, who needed to finish third or better here to break Jack Nicklaus' money-winning marks, skied to 75 and a 287 total, way back in the small change department. Defending champion Dudley Wysong was a stroke back of that, at 288. "That's all right," Casper said. "It gives me something to shoot at the next year." Midway leader Ken Ellsworth, playing in his first pro tour tournament, strayed to a 77 and a total of 283, still good for a check in four figures. Trevino, scheduled to fly to Rome Sunday where he will team with Julius Boros in the World Cup next week, said, "I Tennis The winner earns the right to meet defending champion Australia for the Cup in December. Smith and I.utz, a pair of Los Angeles youngsters who attend UCLA, completely overpowered the Indians in the doubles, never losing service as they ended the match in little more than one hour. Krishnan put up a battle against the Americans, who made virtually no errors, but Mukerjea was unable to keep up with the driving services and snapping returns. "Lutz and Smith demonstrated today beyond a doubt that they are the best amateur doubles team in the world," U.S. Coach Donald Dell said. "I don't think the Australians can beat them if we get that far." The play of the Americans was "so overwhelming that the Indians never got a chance to play their game," Dell added. "1 think they were really confused."
