2C, Fri., Feb. 15, 1974 si LOUIS POST-DISPATCH Bailey Has Flu, Fits Blues Role (By Gary Mueller Of the Post-Dispatch Staff Garnet (Ace) Bailey, who has picked up a reputation for being a bit of a character during his National Hockey League career, found that he. fit right in with the Blues. He has the flu. And right now, that puts him right in character with the fLt Aj -lp Garnet (Ace) Bailey Ted Harris Chicago Circle Vs. Rivermen, Then Cougars The University of Missouri-St. Louis basketball team, which has lost seven of its last eight games, may find an oasis to night when Illinois-Chicago Cir- cle comes to town for an 8 o - clock return game. The Chikas are 8-14 for the season and one of those defeats was a 90-71 whipping handed them by the Rivermen last month on Chicago Circle's home court. That victory has been UMSL's only one away from home in a 7-11 season. Illinois-Chicago Circle will move on to Edwardsville tomorrow night for a game against the Southern Illinois University-Edwardsville Cougars, who are 14-7. Affton Called 'By Rick Hummel Of the Post-Dispatch Staff When the Missouri State High School Activities Association decided last fall to let high school girls compete with boys at the varsity level in "non-contact" sports, no one said anything about them winning. 1 1 no doubt was widely assumed that the girls would exert the customary 110 per cent, flutter their eyelashes occasionally and then leave bereft of any trophies or ribbons. But that premise collapses when applied to someone like Sally Sanguinette, a diver at Affton High. In 16 dual meets this season, Sally has been a winner 14 times. She finished second in the Suburban South Conference meet and she's only a 15-year-old sophomore. "I don't want to jinx her," said Affton coach Don Casey, "but there's no one her age boy or girl who's any better than she is. By next year, she'll be a serious threat for the state title, and she's really no worse than third in the area now. She'll have to fall off the board not to qualify for the state meet." Sally will begin that treK toward the state finals when dis-trict swimming and diving meets open at three pools this weekend. Swimming preliminar- Bill Collins Blues. "I've had it for a couple of days, but I thought I had it licked," said Bailey, who joined the Blues last night after being acquired in a trade with the Detroit Red Wings. "Since it was my first game, I thought I'd give it a whirl, but I was still feeling weak and I'm afraid I didn't play very well." Bailey, normally a left winger, was used at center on a line with Floyd Thomson and Pierre Plante as his wingers. "He can play either spot," said Blues coach Jean Guy Talbot, who also is suffering from the flu. "When Wayne Merrick comes back (out with the flu, of course), I'll probably try Bailey on the left side." The two other Blues newcomersright winger Bill Collins and defenseman Ted Harris also played regularly and each looked good. "I thought Harris played a great game for us," said Talbot. "Our entire defense played well and he fit in nicely." Collins was used on right wing on a line with center Garry linger and left winger Glen Sather. He was particularly impressive killing penalties. Twice he had excellent chances while the Blues were shorthanded. Collins had scored three , shorthanded goals in 54 games with the Red Wings this season. Only Montreal's Pete Mahov-lich and the New York Islanders' Ralph Stewart, with four each, have scored more short-handed goals than Collins. The entire Blues team has only four shorthanded goals this season, with four different players having scored one each. "Coming to St. Louis is a great lift," said Collins. "Getting out of that situation in Detroit is gret. They're starting to get things straightened out, but it'll take them another two years to rebuild that team." With last night's tie, the Islanders now have a 5-15-7 road record, which doesn't sound too good. But they were 0-10-4 when they last visited St. Louis. The first victory on the road was a 4-2 decision over the Blues on Dec. 22. "We've been going good on the road lately," said Islanders coach Al Arbour. "But now we can't do anything right at home. Pittsburgh and Atlanta both beat us gt home last week and we played just awful." The Blues, who have slipped to 1241-6 at home, will meet the Minnesota North Stars in an 8: OS p.m. game tomorrow at The Arena. The North Stars have won only four road games all season including one in St. Louis Then the Atlanta Flames, who currently are tied with the Blues for third place in the West Division, will pay a visit next Tuesday night. Last night's tie stopped the Blues one loss short of their team record of seven straigh defeats, 'set in the 1967-68 season. The Blues still are three games shy of tying their club record for consecutive winless games 10, set" in 1971-72. .

At least six competitors will qualify in each event for next week's finals at the University of Missouri Na-tatorium in Columbia. Though she has lost to just two of the divers she will face in the South District, Sally is less optimistic of her state qualifying chances than is Casey. "I like to win every time out," she said, "but I donf expect to BODY ENGLISH: Jack Nicklaus adds a little body english to a 30-foot putt during the opening round of the $150,-000 Glen Campbell-Los Angeles Open golf tournament yesterday.

(UPI Wirephoto) Nicklaus Serves Notice He's Back LOS ANGELES, Feb. 15 (UPI)-You can talk about the Johnny Millers, the Tom Weiskopfs and the Ben Crenshaws all you want, but Jack Nicklaus, just turned 34, isn't ready to relinquish his crown as pro golf's reigning king. Playing in only his third tournament of the year, the suntanned, blond bomber from North Palm Beach, Fla., by way of Ohio met the stern challenge of the 7028-yard Riviera Country Club course yesterday.

Fourth Soccer Team For Busch Gardens Busch Gardens plans to in-v a d e the juvenile ranks for sponsorship of its fouirtJi soccer team. Tryouts for the new juvenile team for hij;h school freshmen and sophomores will be at 1 p.m. tomorrow at Affton Senior High School. Denny Long, a vice president of Anheuser-Busch, and Bob Brunette will direct the workouts. qualify. I'd like to but I just want to do as well as I can." That, however, has been more than good enough so far. Only Parkway Central's Mark Myers, last year's fifth-place finisher in the state meet, and Lindbergh's Jim Anagnos have defeated Sally this season and she already has avenged the Anagnos setback. But she says she does not think of her cSmpetition in a girls-vs.-boys framework. "I don't think of them as boys just as other people," she said. "They've just accepted me as one of them and they've real-I y been nice to me. I didn't think they'd react the way they did." Sally and her teammate, senior swimmer Vicki Cox, have encountered no undue harassment or difficulties in their historic first seasons, although, Vicki said, "Sometimes, I hear a guy say, 'I'm gonna beat that damn broad. " Then there was the time, as Casey relates, that the two girls entered what they presumed to be an empty locker room after a meet at Clayton. Except that it wasn't empty. "They ran into one of the boy swimmers in his, er, underwear," said Casey. "Then they screamed and ran out." I n that instance, boys were not just other people. He carded five birdies to coast in with a five-under-par 66 for a two-shot lead 'over aging Arnold Palmer, veteran Dave Stockton and freckle-faced Tom Watson. "That's a pretty good round," said the PGA's first and only $2,000,000 career money winner. "I think I can do better, but I played good and I putted well. ; I've got no complaints." .. If Nicklaus keeps it up, Ben Hogan's record at Riviera, a nine-under-par 275 shot in the 1948 LA open, will be easily erased. I n winning last year, San Jose, Calif., veteran Rod Fun-seth carded a 276, including a third-round 65. "The scores seemed to be reasonably good," Nicklaus said. "I imagine it will take about the same scores as last year to win this time." Following the threesome of Watson, Stockton and Palmer with two-under 69s were Chuck Courtney, Lee Trevino, Jim Simons, Brian Allin, Tom Kite and John Schlee. Defending champion Funseth withdrew from the tournament after fir-i n g an opening round 75. He complained of a sore back. Bobby Nichols, winner of the Andy Williams-San Diego Open last month, was disqualified for an improper drop from a pathway on the t e n t h hole. He checked with a PGA official later and found out his drop was illegal. Miller, Weiskopf and Crenshaw? Miller, winner of three tournaments this year, and Weiskopf, the No. 3 money winner last year, had 71s, while the 22-year-old Crenshaw, who is being hailed as the next Nicklaus, struggled in with a 73. Kings Fall B FROM PAGE ONE barded Villemure with three goals in the third period to tie New York, 4-4, and increase the Flyers' lead to seven points over second place Chicago in the NHL west division. "Six games were not enough to keep Villemure sharp," Francis said, snarling. ' Rick MacLeish's twenty-third goal at 1:11 of the third period ignited the Flyers Simon Nolet followed with his twelfth goal and then set up Bill Barber's twentieth goal at 13: 11 to tie the score. Steve Vickers, Bobby Rous-s e a u and Pete Stemkowski scored first-period goals against Bernie Parent before Bobby Clarke connected for Philadelphia. Vic Hadfield built the Rangers' lead to 4-1 with a second-period tally. In the World Hockey Association, the Toronto Toros beat the Jersey Knights, 5-2, and the Quebec Nordiques downed the Chicago Cougars, 5-3. Correction On Trimble It was incorrectly reported in Sunday's Post-Dispatch that Alan Trimble quit at Forest Park Community College and joined the Marines. Trimble graduated from Forest Park before joining the Marines Gritty Winter Impressive For Outclassed Stars At the finish, shellshocked goalkeeper Mike Winter must have felt as if he'd protected a goal as large as the Arch, the downtown attraction the visiting Russian soccer players dutifully insisted on seeing first thing. But Winter, though dazed over both the bombardment and the results of 11 goals, needn't hang his curly head. Nor, for that matter, should any of the other soccer Stars who played the Russian Red Army team Wednesday night at The Arena. Sure, the Stars were outclassed because Red Army ranks with Moscow Dynamo and Moscow Torpedo as one of the three best soccer teams in the far-flung Soviet Republics, where the No. 1 international sport is more prominent than here. If, therefore, you'll concede that the average Russian youth has a better early acquaintanceship with kicked ball than even St. Louis's Catholic Youtti "Council kids, you'll begin to appreciate the edge the Soviet side had. Add to that skill advantage superior physical conditioning, unit discipline, practice and experience and the fact that Red-Army had been playing the gimmicky game of indoor soccer and on AstroTurf, too, and you'll appreciate better the handicap the Stars faced. As semipros, which is all they are because they have to earn a living elsewhere than on the soccer pitch, the local athletes hung in there. And, honestly, they didn't run out of gas as frightfully as I feared they might. The spectacle before a crowd of 12,241 was an appealing attraction for which the Stars' management and players, the cooperating CYC and the visiting Red Army athletes Can take a bow. , The red-jerseyed Soviet side, wearing shorter hair that made at least one guy sigh for the good old days, marched in carrying an American flag. The blue-trimmed, white-uniformed Stars carried the flaming Russian banner. Applause greeted the gesture of international goodwill and ambitious vocalizing of both national anthems by CYC youngsters. If you think the Star Spangled Banner is tough, the salute to Mother Russia is something else again even if you knew what 'n hell the words meant. As the team captains exchanged team pennants, a nicety of soccer abroad, the well-mannered crowd gave out with a boo that might have startled the Russkies if they hadn't spotted the reason for it the emerging black-uniformed figure of referee Larry King. King, a tall St. Louisan who has officiated many international matches, handled himself and the ball game well, I thought, considering the fact that the multi-colored soccer ball, looking like a miniature beach ball, moved from one end of Lee Going Fishing, Will Skip Masters LOS ANGELES, Feb. 15 (AP) Lee Trevino is skipping the Masters tournament again. "Didn't I tell you," Trevino said yesterday. "I sent the invitation back to them a month ago. I'm going fishing that week." Trevino, who twice has won both the United States and British Opens, boycotted the prestigious Masters in Augusta, Ga., once before, but has played in the famed tournament the last two years. Bl ues B FROM PAGE ONE tended and chasing after the puck. In the first period, Garry Un-ger and Smith had a dead heat in their race for the puck, with Unger finally getting control with his back to the net. He shot as he turned, with the puck glancing off the post. With only 2:47 left in the game, Polis bounced a shot off the post in an almost identical situation. But perhaps the biggest bad bounce came with 7:55 left to play. The line of Unger, Sather and Bill Collins had the pressure on and Sather narrowly missed tipping a pass from Collins past Smith. As the puck bounced wide of the post, Smith still appeared in trouble because he was out of position and Unger appeared about ready to push the puck into the net. Instead, Westfall grabbed Unger, preventing him from getting the shot away. Once the Islanders had weathered the holding penalty against West-fall, they held on for the tie. But the Blues' six-game losing streak was ended. Ice Bill: B FROM PAGE ONE pletely ignored rankles the coach. Of course, if the Bills fall flat against Ohio State, Selman's strategy will have a big fat gap in it. And the Buckeyes are no patsies, compiling a 13-10-2 record which includes a victory at Lake Superior State, a rink in which the Bills were annihilated on a January trip.' The Bills' season-long goal has been a berth in the NCAA's four-team championship tournament. And what will the five-man selection committee, which has always sent two WCHA teams to the tourney previously, say if they sit down on March 10 and find St. Louis U. unranked? Selman, a member of the committee, has a good idea. "They'll say, "Look, you're not even ranked in the top 10. How can you expect to go anywhere?'

Open Bowling NEW YORK, Feb. 15 (AP) - Dave Davis can afford a 185. The 31-year-old southpaw from Atlanta saverl his wrm-st for last but can't be too concerned since he holds a commanding 309-pin lead as the fin-al eight-game segment gets under way today in the $85,000 United States Open bowling tournament. Davis rolled a 185 after string-i ng together seven games of 248, 247, 236, 226, 255, 264 and 226 for a total pinfall of 1887 to lead the 24 survivors, cut from an original field of 240. The smooth-rolling Davis was 6-2 in direct competition in yesterday's matches. He is credited with 9397 pins. Earl Anthony, Tacomaf Wash., moved from ninth place to second on games of 226, 217, 232, 278, 248, 288, 196 and 286. Anthony also showed a 6-2 mark but knocked down 64 more pins than Davis. Anthony, who has seven career victories, was at 9088 and was 57 pins ahead of St. Louisan Dick Weber. Weber went 4-4 in his eight games and, with 1680 pins, fell one notch in the standings.

Even if King missed much and he definitely was right in denying St. Louis a point on a loose ball Soviet netminder Leonid Shmutz snatched a fraction from the goal early in the second period he couldn't be blamed. Winter, too, couldn't be faulted. The Stars' goalie from Chicago did look bad on Vladimir Fedotov's second of four goals, missing with a kick rather than grabbing a shot in the final 70 seconds of the first period. ' But otherwise, Winter was so good that, except for his rapid reactions, the Russians might have scored 20 times. And if big, powerful Shmutz hadn't been so outstanding, St. Louis might have scored 10 goals rather than four. As it was, Denny Vaninger, a wild-haired wonder for the Stars, scored four times and came close a couple of other times. The way Vaninger acquired a goal-getting habit when playing outdoors iri St. Louis amateur ranks, coach John Sewell will have to take a hard look at the aggressive second-year man when the North American Soccer League begins in May. Indoor soccer, if successful, could enable Ted Martin and partners to pay the Stars more money through more games. A winter season indoors would complement the summer season outdoors for NASL. And, like experienced billiard players the Stars would learn more about use of the boards for bank shots if they played the six-on-a-side game more often. Knowing the natural aggressiveness of local soccer players, I'd like to congratulate the home-town athletes for playing the Russians hard, yet cleanly. Out of the one awkward moment, in which Gary Rensing grabbed piano-legged Serge Moriozov's jersey and tore it, there was an amusing postscript. The Russian ripped away the rest of his red shirt and offered it to Rensing, who, if he hadn't been headed for the penalty box, might have had a rare souvenir of a game that will rank as a novel and worthwhile experience for the ' American athletes. - Now, like Canada's hockey professionals and other world performers in other games, St. Louis's soccer players know that the Soviets bring superb stamina and dedication to any event. They get more practice time, too, and they show it. They're so precise in their play that when the Soviets' Vladimir Dorofeev missed a two-on-one 'break in the third period, Russia's No. 15 threw his hands up in anguish. And a leather-lunged local fan, trying to make Dorofeev feel at home, yelled: "Off to Siberia." Missouri Clip Match V . .
