1 """"Sports Theater TV Comics 7D 8D 9D SECTION ROCHESTER, N. Y., SATURDAY, JULY 18, 1970 r y Bruce Koch On Golf JIM INFANTINO 3 Tie in Oak Hill Satellite' Not to offend any competitors, but this Silver Foils thing at Oak Hill is kind of a satellite tournament to Oak Hill's big invitation. Nevertheless, it attracts some of the top players in the area and yesterday three teams tied at 63 eight under par, for the halfway lead. They were Dr. John Eisensch-mid and his pop, Carl Ei-senschmid; John Schubert and Howard Henderson, and Andy Halblcib and Fred Henning. Play was on the West Course. Today they'll challenge 'the East in the 18-hole wrap-up. Alex Otto and Barry Huntley were second at 64, along with Dr. James DeVVeese and Wheelock Southgate, who made a run at CCR last weekend. Mike Carpenter and Ray Walsh still are in contention at 65, along with the duos of Stan Hoffman-Don Rodenbaugh, and George Schiller-Bob Bur-dette. AT IRONDEQUOIT, in a 17-year-old tournament, Phil Nievert, who plays about once every two weeks, teamed with a shooter named Henry Weiner of Elkins Park, Pa., for the lead with a sizzling 11-under-par 32-29-61 in the Invitation. Fun and insults are the rule at Irondequoit. Neiv-ert and Weiner got both, especially since Mr. Weiner, an 18-handicapper, checked in with a 78 on his Dwn ball! The indomitable Jack Schlacter and Dr. Jim In-fantino of Midvale, the latter growing a moustache and beard and looking like Joe Namath, "hit it all over the course" by their own admission and shot 62. Just think if they get sharp! Al Goldberg and Roger Marcus, the famous poker players, checked in with 63, two shots ahead of a doggedly-determined Charlie August and George Davis. At 66 Max Rosenthal and Henry Stern, along with Dan Schuman and CCR guest Alex Hargrave, who take a lot of ribbing. Leo Birenberg imported Herb Karren from San Antonio (where they used to train Air Force people such as me) for 67. To tie with Dr. Irwin Frank-Dr. zAlastaire Gillies; humorist Dr. Saul Commins and rules expert Dr. George Trainor, and good guy Al Katz and Rich Davis. Irondequoit winds up today too, with 18 holes early in the morning. ACES . . . ACES . . . ACES: Once they were rare. Dave Nelson's mom writes he used to work in the golf shop at Oak Hill. A hole-in-one for Dave with a 9-iron on the 136-yard third at Beaver Brook CC, Clinton, N.J., the same club at which Dave recently had his wedding reception. Dave is now associate pro under Terry Wesley, formerly of Brook-Lea, at Fox Hollow, Somerville, N.J. Braemar pro Charlie Paris. A 5-iron on the 175-yard No. 8 at Braemar. His second, the last one being somewhere around 1951 at Midvale. Mrs. Birdie Round, Mrs. Arch Germann, Mrs. May Ann Hauck and Mrs. Roy Boehmer witnesses. Milton Tattlebaum, his second 6th hole at Irondequoit with a 5-wood from 175 yards. Watching were Abe Tattlebaum, Sam Croog and Dave Scholssman. Lou Moore at Lima. The 16th, 165 yards, with a 4-iron.

A 4,-iron on the 175-yarder. Playing Jerry Mousso in a President's Cup match and a loser. Mousso retaliated with an eagle on the par-5 ninth.

Sportscasts Picketing Set for Spencer I onight By JIM RICKEY The stage is set. Area drag racing drivers will be parked along Route 104 around 5 p.m. today to display their disapproval over Spencer Speedway safety conditions. Still more will compete at Fulton Raceway in protest of the nearby track. Whether the protest and boycott of the Williamson strip will be a success or failure, no one will know until tonight at 8:30 when Spencer opens its gates for a scheduled night of drag racing. The drivers, headed by Sam Lincoln and Charlie Conrose, have complained of an unsafe shutdown (area where a car must stop after it crosses the finish line) period and other poor facilities. Del Spencer and his wife, Mary, have publicly said they would not improve conditions and may close the track for the rest of the season. "What we're going to do," said Conrose, "is to park 'We'll have signs stating Fulton this way1 our cars along Route 104 near the Spencer entrance. We'll have signs stating 'Fulton this way. All the advantages are there.' " "We'll have around 20-25 guys out there holding signs," Conrose predicted. "At least 40 cars from Spencer will be running at Fulton later on. "All we're out to do is see that we have a better place to race," Conrose said. "We're not out to kill Spencer's. "The guy has said he doesn't care about drag racing and the people involved," Conrose replied, "it's just a part time job to him." "It will be a success if everyone (drivers) is made aware of the problem and the willingness of the drivers to do something about it." said Lincoln. "But if we stay at Spencer's untill 7-7:li0, we can't possibly ride at Fulton, too. I'm willing to lose money just to prove our point. I will, though, be down there (Fulton) later." "At least 10 of about 16 customers who are drivers say they will be out at Fulton," Lincoln said. "Even though some of us may not be able to get to Fulton on time to race, about 40 others will." Spencer, when asked if he would close down the track for tonight's program, said "I'm not answering any more questions. We have already made our statements and the track will remain the same." Earlier Spencer said he would close down the track if the drivers did not want to race at the Speedway. "I might close it for the whole season. If they don't want to run it, why should I keep it open?" BASEBALL: Minnesota Twins vs. Baltimore Orioles at Baltimore, 2 p.m. Channel Q.

Watt fanned Leo Cardenas for the second out, but Tischinski singled to left, scoring Killebrew with the tie-breaking run. Tischinski scored the tying run from second in the ninth on Cesar Tovar's single to right when catcher Ellie Hendricks dropped Frank Robinson's throw to the plate for an error. Tischinski had walked and taken second on a passed ball by Hendricks.

It took a four-run outburst in the seventh inning to finally wrap it up for Rochester and end a four-game losing streak. Ed Maras, the second of four Red Wing hurlers, was the winner. The righthander reliever pitched four-plus stout innings before he needed help from Rick Delgado and Mickey Scott to finish the Colonels off. But Freed, Baylor and Allen, who combined for eight of the 16 hits and together drove in seven runs, had staked him to a soft enough cushion to ride out a late Colonel threat. Frank Bertaina (9-3) will oppose Colonel right-hander Dick Mills (3-5) in tonight's match at 7:30 at Fairgrounds Stadium. Although Rochester gave Fred Beene five runs for a working margin in the first five innings, the little righthander failed to last past the fifth. The Colonels chased him with a four-run fifth inning that put the home side ahead in front, 8-5. The Red Wings needed only moderate hitting in the early going as Colonel pitchers Mike Garman and Charley Pfeiffer together issued eight walks in the first three innings. Tom Shopay opened the game with Please turn page in in 1 Oth drilled a three-run shot in the top of the seventh. Hendricks also homered for the Orioles. Jim Palmer of the Baltimore Orioles, ill with a fever, missed his starting assignment last night against the Minnesota Twins. Palmer, who has a 12-6 record and was the starter for the American League in Tuesday's AH Star Game, is expected to return to action Sunday in Chicago. PHILADELPHIA (AP) -Steady Billy Casper cruised in with a five-under-par 67 yesterday and surged into the second round lead in the $150,000 Philadelphia Golf Classic. The reigning Masters champion, who has scored a whopping 45 professional victories had a 36-hole total of 135, nine under par for two tours of the tight, little Whitemarsh Valley Country Club course, a 6,670 yard par 72 layout. The 38-year-old Casper, a quiet, placid man from Bon-ita, Calif., held a one-stroke lead over Texan Charley Coody. Coody, whose last tour victory was in the Cleveland Open a year ago, had a solid 68 for 136. Ray Floyd, in a mild slump since taking the 1969 PGA title and pudgy Bob Murphy followed at 137. Floyd had a 68 and Murphy, still troubled by his lack of birdies on the relatively short par five, had a 70. It rook a score of 146 to make the cut for the final two rounds today and tomorrow. Casualties included Chi Chi Rodriguez, Julius Boros and Doug Sanders. Billy Casper 6' 67- Charles toody 68-6fi- Rav Floyd 69-68- Rob Murphy 67-70- Funky Henry 69-69- 71 67 70-69- 71-68-71-63- 71-69.

More than two years ago, the County Legislature authorized a $50 million bond issue for the project in suburban Lancaster. Officials said a supplementary bond issue of $20 million would have to be approved if the much-delayed project were to now get underway. The apparent low bids on six construction contracts comprising the project's second phase totaled $50,895,230, including general construction. The only bid for general construction, a joint offering of the Siegfried Construction Co. of Buffalo and Hunkey-Conkin Co. of Cleveland, Ohio, totaled $35,750,000. , That figure was nearly twice what stadium planners had estimated. In May, the county opened excavation and steel bids totaling $12,116,700. No contracts have been awarded. In addition to the $50-million-plus in bids opened yesterday and the $12 million in bids opened in May, there are additional costs of about $7 million projected for such items as interest and land acquisition. This brings the total to $70,496,948. The county's public works commissioner, H. Dale Bossert, said he would present the stadium matter to county legislators at a meeting today. The 55,000-seat domed stadium would replace aging War Memorial Stadium, which is in Buffalo's innercity. Its major tenants would include the Buffalo Bills of the National Football League.
