2-?- Palm Beach Post, Monday, Nov. 18, 1968 Bear Won Another In Orange Bowl Balding Leads Canada To World Cup Title i 7 A if ,uaA - ;; ; m t M i a , 1 1 .Tin r:. J ) I 'i 7 . . '- .',." -h f ft-- ft third rounds, faded for a fourth place finish at 576. Hsieh Yung-yo shot a last round 74 and Lu Liang-Huan had a closing 76. The United States had won the team trophy ten of the 15 times it had been contested. The title last year went to Arnold Palmer and Jack Nicklaus, with Palmer taking the individual crown at Mexico City. The third round Saturday was interrupted by a hail and rain storm with six of the 42 two-man teams still on the course. The Americans were at the last hole, the Chinese two holes behind. Balls were marked and play was resumed in bright sunshine early Sunday. Balding, 44, a regular on the U.S. pro tour and one of the original competitors in this tournament, was easily the star of the show. He had consecutive rounds of 68-72-67-67 over the 6-850-yard, par 72 Olgiata course w hich was drenched Friday and Saturday by heavy rains. His 274 total gave him a five-stroke edge over Bernardino, 24-year-old Italian pro, who had 279. Trevino came third with 283. followed by Brian Huggett of Wales and Gary Player of South Africa, tied at 285; China's Lu and Scotland's Eric Brown, 286. The World Cup, formerly the Canada Cup, was started in 1953 by the International Golf Association. Canada has won the individual crown twice before Stan Leonard at Melbourne in 1959 and Knudson in Tokyo two years ago but this is the country's first team crown. bulge. This was only one of three pass interceptions that foiled Miami scoring threats, however. Sophomore quarterback Scott Hunter who looks destined to follow the same glory path Joe Namath and Ken Stabler did while playing at Alabama had given the Tide an earlier touchdown when he hooked up with Donnie Sutton for a six-pointer that covered 73 yards. Sutton hauled the pass in at the Alabama 47 and out raced Miami defender Greg Perez the rest of the way. "He called the play himself," Bryant said of Hunter's TD pass. "He had tried it earlier but a Miami defender made a good plav to stop it." Then the obvious question was put to Bryant. What are Alabama's Bowl plans? "I certainly think we are entitled to a bowl," he said without reservation. "If we get invited, the seniors will decide ... we have been letting the seniors decide for several years now." If Alabama should land in another bowl this year and from all indications it will it will be the 10th consecutive year the Bear has taken the Crimson Tide to a bowl classic. But then for someone who can walk on water, this record is not too surprising. Mantle Undecided SUNFISH SAILORS - Pictured above are Sunfish Class skippers sailing in the state championships on Lake Mangonia over the weekend. Joe Jana of Miami won the two-day event. Jana Wins Sunfish State Sail Races BEAR BRYANT Bryant in a casual performance after the game, agreed fully. "I guess it is old fashioned to try and win a football game with your defense," Bryant said as he puffed on a cigarette in the Alabama dressing room, "but that is what we did out there tonight." Bryant then removed the red sweater he was wearing and took time out to tell a radio jockey to take a microphone away from his face. "We were really proud out there," he continued. "Our defense won the game for us. Dean's interception was just tremendous, though." Defensive halfback Mike Dean picked off a Lew Tytel pass early in the final period and raced 69 yards down the sidelines to give 'Bama a 14-0 . 1 . . - -4 but was unable to close the gap. Odum's finishes were 3-8-10, 3-1-3. Joe Schmidt of Miami was third, Doug Brown of Miami fourth and Paul Lindenberg of West Palm Beach fifth. Lindenburg was the defending state champion, while Schmidt and Odom were other former champs in the race. Palm Beach Lakes Sailing Club was host for the event, which was sailed in light breezes of five to 10 miles per hour. BY DON BOYKIN Staff Writer MIAMI (AFN) Presidentelect Richard M. Nixon was part of the 43.418 gathered fans at the Orange Bowl Saturday night to watch the University of Miami battle Ala-bams Crimson Tide. . But Nixon, who just barely outdistanced Hubert H. Humphrey two weeks in the Presidential race, was not the biggest winner Saturday night at the Orange Bowl. Tide Coach Paul Bryant or Bear as he is more commonly known was. The Bear came into the game with Miami claiming a fantastic record of 179 wins, 53 losses and 15 ties. At Alabama, however, he is even more impressive with 88 victories, only 14 losses and seven draws. That was before Alabama met Miami Saturday night. Now Bryant is one game richer in the win column after the Tide turned six pass interceptions and a 73-yard touchdown pass into a 14-6 victory. For Miami, the loss was its second to an Alabama club this fall. Three weeks ago, Auburn, which plays Alabama Nov. 30, buried the Hurricanes, 31-6. Coach Charlie Tate's Miami club could have won Saturday night had it not been for Alabama's ball-hawking defense. NEW YORK (AP) - Thousands of kids settled happily in their chairs to watch Heidi Sunday night just moments after their fuming football-loving fathers leaped to their feet in outrage and reached for the telephone. The start of Heidi at 7 p.m., EST, cut off to most of the country the final minute of the New York Jets-Oakland Raiders game being telecast by NBC from Oakland. And it was no ordinary minute that was cut from the view of Of Fans NEW YORK (AP) - Mickey Mantle insists that he hasn't decided yet whether he'll continue to play baseball next season. A copyrighted story by Dick Young in Sunday editions of the New York Daily News said Mantle was retiring and would not return to the New York Yankees next season. Mickey was out playing football in his backyard when Bob Fischel, the Yankees' vice president for public relations, called him at his Dallas home to ask him about the story. "Who knows how I'm going to feel in march." Fischel quoted Mantle as saying. "I don't know yet what I'm going to do." Joe Jana of Miami piled up a big lead Saturday and coasted home Sunday with the state championship in the Sunfish singles Sailing Races on Lake Mangonia. Three heats were sailed each day, with each skipper allowed to throw out the results of his worst race. Jana finished 1-1-4 on Saturday and 1-10-8 Sunday. Frank Odum of West Palm Beach closed ground on Jana Sunday, m Weidi'H TV Jets-Raiders; Blow Fuses The Iceman Cometh ROME (AP) - The veteran Ai Balding closed with a second straight five-under-par 67 Sunday and carried Canada to a double victory that broke America's domination of the World Cup golf competition. The tall, willowy pro from Toronto captured the individual prize with a 72-hole score of 274, just two shots off the tournament record, and teamed with George Knudson for the team championship. Knudson, 31, also a Toronto professional who always plays in sun glasses, had a final round 74 for 295 but it was good enough to overtake the favored Americans and front-running Nationalist Chinese, who had l"d through the second and third rounds. Lee Trevino, the voluble U.S. Open champion from Dallas, finished with a 73, his poorest round, and his partner, the 48-ytar-old Julius Boros, American I'GA champion from Fort Lauderdale. Fla., shot a closing 72 placing the Americans second. Canada's winning total in the Wjirld Cup competition was 569. The Americans were two shots hack at 571. followed by Italy's surprising duo of Alfonso Ange-luii and Roberto Bernardini at 1)73. The Nationalist Chinese, who grabbed the lead on the first day and tied the Americans for first place through the second and Prep Score Race Closes While Seacrest was busy keeping Vet o Beach's Dennis Downs, Suncoast Conference Eastern Division high school scoring leader, scoreless Friday night, Mike Humphrey of Lake Worth was tallying two touchdowns to move into second place along wilh Dennis Matthews of Sea-nest with 54 points. Downs, despite his pointless performance, still heads the league with 79 tallies. Pahokee's Leopold Sterling clung to his Suncoast West load with two six-pointers against Boca Raton for a total of 78 on the season. Alvonzo Clark of Kennedy was without a score against Carver but still tops the Atlantic loop with 78. Lake Placid's Jim Ad-kins now has 102 points after scoring three TD's against Frostproof and leads the independents.

Nothing can enliven an attack more than an option passer at halfback. The Giants haven't had a good one since Gifford. Thus far, Duhon has tossed only two. One to Homer Jones was disallowed because an overanxious lineman beat the gun. The other was to Aaron Thomas for 19 yards. If you insist on being statistically technical, Bobby is the leading passer in the league with one for one, a 100 per cent average. "Bobby doesn't let us forget about the option," said Allie with a smile of admiration. "Every day at practice he says, 'Hey, Fran, how about letting me try the option pass?' There haven't been many left-handed passers in this league. The only ones I can think of are Frankie Albert and me." Allie blushed modestly. The Giants believe this 200-pound six-footer from Tulane, a cool kid, may yet be named rookie of the year. They even could be correct. ejajpiepaM m ,.,i nanus ,.iajiiaM,ej(m!,iaii'i football fans in the South and East. New York went ahead 32-29 with 1:05 left and the fans at home saw the Raiders return the kickoff and run one play. What they didn't see were two Oakland touchdowns for a 43-32 victory. Julian Goodman, president of NBC, said in a statement: "It was a forgiveable error committed by human beings who were concerned about the children expecting to see Heidi at 7 p.m. Imissed the end of the .ft 7UV As for the Yankees, Fischel said they expect Mantle at their training camp in Fort Lauderdale, Fla. and also expect him to play. "We are denying the story," said Fischel. "As far as we know, Mickey is coming back. We firmly expect him to play." Young quoted Mantle, who celebrated his 37th birthday last month, as saying "I just can't hit anymore." Mickey batted .237 a career low last season, but his 18 home runs to move into third place on the alltime list of homer hitters. Mantle has 536 career homers after passing both Ted Williams and Jimmy Foxx last ver. Cards Lose In Japan KOKURA, Japan, (AP) -Right-hander Akira Takahashi pitched a two-hitter and paced the Yomiuri Giants to a 2-0 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals Sunday. The defeat was the fifth for the Cards. The National League champions have won 11 games. The Giants, Japan's baseball Champions, scored runs in the first and third innings off Cardinal starter Nelson Briles. Lou Brock in the second inning and Tim McCarver in the ninth had the only Cardinal hits off Takahasi. NEW YORK The average rookie is usually so awed by the star quarterback that he speaks only when spoken to and then merely to say "Yes, sir." But Bobby Duhon of the New York Giants is no average rookie. Fran farkenton had suspected it from the start but he became convinced of it in Duhon's first game as a professional against the Eagles last September. Strong ball-carrying by the youngster from Tuleane had set up a Pete Gogolak field goal that gave the giants a tenuous 29-19 lead in the third quarter. In one huddle, though, Duhon offered a suggestion to Tarkenton that was uttered with all the confidence of Del Shofner speaking to Y. A. Tittle or Frank Gilfor offering a pearl of wisdom to Charlie Conerly . "Fran," said the black-haired Cajun to the play-caller, "I can beat the outside linebacker to the ball on any sort of long down-field pass." Fran nodded and considered. Duhon had been a quarterback at Tulane and thought like one, clearly and logically. Since Bobby had welcomed suggestions from teammates as the smarter quarterbacks always do, he was doing what came naturally. What 's more, Tark remembered something he himself had said to Coach Allie Sherman a short time before. "Allie," Fran had said, this kid is real good. He has lots of cool. He never gets rattled. I never saw a rookie with so much poise. In spite of his cool he has all the inner fire we look for. He's going to help us a lot." Frank wasn't thinking, though, in terms of immediate delivery. But when the giants regained possession of the ball that hot afternoon, he called for a halfback shoot-and-fly. Duhon went flying downfield. A great catch of a great throw added up to a 51-yard gain One play later the New Yorkers had a touchdown that led to a .14 25 victory. But it was Duhon who broke the game apart. If Randy Minniear had not had a cheekbone shattered late in the second however, brash Bobby might never have made it. Those were not sweet nothings that Tarkenton whispered into Duhon's ear after each breakout from the huddle. The kid of Tulane was so new to his job that Fran kept whispering directions for each play just in case. It's no longer necessary. But Duhon had spent the first six weeks at training camp with the defensive backfield. "I expected to be with the offensive platoon," he says, "But I arrived at camp and discovered that my gear was placed in the defensive locker room." The giant coaching staff couldn't make up its collective mind in the beginning and it was not until personnel shuffles had been made that the decision was reached to shift him to the offense. "I guess that's what I wanted all along, "said Sherman. "I had studied films of him at Tulane and liked the fact that he had all the instinctive moves of a runner along with all the balance and composure that can't be coached into anyone. Then we learned that he was a quick study, picking up everything ast including blocking technique. "I've since been amazed at the way he catches passes. He catches them like an end. I haven't seen a rookie backfield man with hands like his since Frank Gifford, Kyle Rote, and Ale Webster were first brekaing in." Another asset that kept lurking in the back of Allie's mind was Dog Racing ft"--'- injIjlHiaMlaTal' lT game as much as anyone else." The mistake led to such a deluge of telephone calls to NBC headquarters that 'an operator said the fuses in the switchboard blew out. Many irate fans became further angered by the fact that they couldn't get through to NBC to complain. SO they called police headquarters. This made the New York Police Department unhappy because hundreds of calls were to the emergency police number. J3l itet. v ' CHARCOAL MELLOWED 6 .
