Dick Hart sets sights on par, PGA title DALLAS (UPI) - Dick Hart, a newcomer to big time golf, laughed at the odds today and set his sights on two par rounds —and the PGA championship. "ril win it if I shoot par from here on in," predicted the 27 year-old Hinsdale, 111., assistant pro, who went into today's third round of the 45th annual PGA tournament leading the surviving field of 83 players by three strokes. He knew there were plenty of golfers behind him who could get hot as the Texas heat and beat him out. "I'm in front of them," he said. "They have to catch me." Closest to him were U.S. Open champion Julius Boros, Tony Lema and Shelley Mayfield. Because he isn't accustomed to big time golf, his fellow pros predicted that after shooting a first round 66 on Thursday that Friday would be different. It was—but not as much as his fellow pros figured. For he shot a one over par 72 and that half- ^vay mark total of 138 was three shots better than Boros, Lcma and JIayfieid. champion Jack Nicklaus, Doug Ford and Manuel De La Torre, while at 143 came Bruce Cramp ton. Bill Johnston, Gene Littler and Doug Sanders. Palmer At 147 They were stretched out pretty well after that with Arnold Palmer at 147 and defending champion Gary Player at 149. Dow Finsterwald, Bob Gajda, Bob Goalby, Ed Kuna, Billy Maxwell. Ed Merrins, Mason Rudolph, Dan Sikes, Alike Souchak and Sam Snead were in the 144 bracket But as they went out on the sun-seared acres of the DAG Country Club course, there were a lot of name players sitting on the sidelines. Most of them didn't shoot well enough—it took a score of 151 to qualify for the final two rounds of play today and Sunday—but there were three of them who gave up to the blistering Texas heat. Jack Fleck, Jim Ferree and Don Fairfield called it quits because of tiie blistering sun, but none of them was in contention when they packed in their clubs. Neither were Jack Isaacs nor Roy Wallin, who were forced to Four shots back were Masters I give up because of illness. Those who didn't shoot well enough included five former PGA champions and two former U.S. Open kings. Walter Burkemo, Lionel Hebert, Chick Harbert, Vic Ghezzi and Jim Tumesa were the ex-PGA kings on the sidelines. With them were former U.S. Open titleholders Lew Worsham and Ed Furgol. Phil Kodgers, who lost to Bob Charles in the British Open playoff last week, didn't make the cut either with a total of 155. Hart admitted that he played Friday's second round cozy. "I was just trying to make pars, not birdies," he said, "and right now I'll settle for two par rounds. That will be good enough to win." He admitted he felt "the pressure" of being the leader when he went out Friday with many of the gallery of 8,500 persons who jammed the DAC course following him as he played with Dick Turner and Bob Keller. 'But I had my senses all the way," he added. "There were a couple of fast swings that didn't help any and I thought the crowd sounded like a baseball crowd. But remember, I'm not used to playing before crowds."

The 23-year-old Miss Mills put together sub-par rounds of 17 and 70 in the first two days of the 14th annual tournament Here 141 total broke by one stroke the 3 hole Women's Open record set by Jlickey Wright of Dallas in 1960. And her 70 racked up in Friday's hot and humid weather tied the course record for the Kenwood Country Club and put the Dixie belle into a commandmg lead over veteran Louise Suggs of Delray Beach, Fla., with 72-72—144. Miss Mills admitted the warm temperatures probably helped her during the first two days of five- under-par golf and hoped for more of the same in today's gruelluig 35 holes. She has played in only eight tournaments this year due to a sprained back and told reporters, "This is the first time I haven't had a back pain. I think the weather has something to do with it." Friday's firing cut the original field of 81 down to 40, 33 pros and seven amateurs.

Player was forced to hit a wedge left-handed to get out of the heavy rough on the second hole; Redlands Daily Facts Saturday, July 20, 1963 -7 Dodgers pennant swings merrily along MILWAUKEE (UPI) - The swinging Los Angeles Dodgers tried out the Milwaukee Braves for size as doormats today in their merry drive for the National League pennant Torrid Sandy Koufax (16-3) went for his 10th straight victory at the expense of brave starter Denny Lemaster (5-9), and the snappy Dodger hitting ought to bring the southpaw victwy No. 17 on a platter. The trio of Don Drysdale, Frank Howard and rookie Ken McMuUen was too much for the Braves Friday night as Los Angeles defeated Milwaukee 4-2. The Dodger victorj-, coupled with second-place Chicago's 9-1 loss to the Pittsburgh Pirates, pushed O'Malley's men 7% games ahead in first place. Drysdale apparently back in fine fettle, struck out 11 Braves while giving up six hits to snap a three-game losing streak and raise his season record to 12-10. Bob Hendley, who was rdieved for a pmch batter in the sbcth, was charged with his sbtth loss against five wms. Howard didn't waste any time as he belted the furst pitch on two occasions for his 14th and 15th home runs. SLx of his homers came off the Braves. He led off the second and walloped Hendley's first pitch over the left field wall. With two out in the fourth, he again hit the first pitch for his second homer of the game. But rookie McMulIen's seventh inning single scored the necessary two runs for Los Angeles to take its ninth victory in the current 11-game road trip. Howard, on first on an error, advanced to third base on Bill Skowron's double, then McMullen drove both men in with his single. The Braves scored their two runs in the seventh when Hank Aaron tagged Drysdale for his 27th home run of the year, and the final run after Don gave up a walk and a single.

Lowly Senators liottest team in league By United Press International Quick now, what's the hottest team in the American League? No it isn't the New York Y'an- kees resplendent with their 5Vi- game lead but the Washington Senators who are in 10th place, a mere 23 games behind the world champions. The Senators have won 11 of theh- 14 games this month for a .786 percentage that makes manager Gil Hodges look like a genius even if it doesn't make Washington, D.C, the baseball capital of the world. The Senators scored their third victory in four games Friday night when they nipped the Minnesota Twins 6-5 on the strength of the hitting and fielding heroics of centerfielder Don Lock. Lock drove in the wnning run with a two-out single in the top of the 13tb inning and then robbed Bob Allison of a homer with a leaping catch in the bottom nf the game. Ostten Wins Fourth A total of 40 players saw action in the four-hour and 23-minute game with Claude Osteen, the fifth Washington pitcher, winning his fourth game and Jim Perry, the seventh Minnesota pitcher, losing his sixth.

Lock's game winning single scored Ken Retzer, who reached second base on shortstop Zoilo Versalles' throwing error and advanced to third on an infield out Lock had two other hits, includmg a homer, in addition to the decisive single to lead the Senators' 12-hit attack. Heavyweight title figlit to be a sellout LAS VEGAS, Nev. (UPI)-Promoter Al Bolan announced today there will be a "complete sellout" of all 7,691 paid admissions for the Sonny Liston-Floyd Patterson heavyweight title fight at the (invention Center. He said the gross gate for this return 15-round fight should approach $300,000 and set a new Nevada record for fights. Both champion Sonny Liston, 30, and e-x-champ Patterson, 28, were scheduled for their final news conferences today. Big Sonny, who won the title from Floyd on a first round knockout at <3ucago last Sept 25, planned to take a brief workout today at the Thunderbu-d Hotel before his conference. Because Sonny was so destructive at 214 pounds in Chicago, he plans to scale about the same at Saturday's weigh-in. Patterson, who has finished his public workouts, planned to talk to the writers today and tiien disappear until the weigh-in. Floyd hopes to register about 195 pounds sLx more than at Chicago. The Nevada State Athletic Commission announced late Friday that the safety rule providing a knockout defeat lor any lighter floored three times in one round would be waived for this fight. But the commission also announced that the safety rule requiring an eight-count for a floored boxer before he can continue will be enforced. As champion Sonny tapered off training today, he disclosed he had slapped contender Cassius Clay's face in the Thunderbird Hotel's game room on Thursday when Cassius called Sonny "a chump-^iot a champ." Liston said. "He didn't try to slap back. He just grabbed the edge of a crap table to keep from falling down." If Sonny beats Floyd Monday night. Sonny will make his next defense against Clay at Philadelphia's Municipal Stadium Sept. 30. Dressen's Tigers chew up Los Angeles Angels LOS ANGELES (UPI)-Chariey Dressen, a longtime tiger in the ranks of baseball managers, showed he could bare a lot of fangs as a Detroit Bengal after only one month with the motor city club. The chunky little manager's revived Detroit Tigers chewed up the Los Angeles Angels Friday night, 10-5, coming from behind to score seven runs in the last two innings. Dressen took over the Tigers June 19 and since he has been at theur hebn they have won 14 games while losing 15. But the Angels had to take the blame for giving Dressen an assist towards the victory wth inept play that put Detroit within range. And all Dressen's men needed was the opportunity and they seized it to pull ahead. Dees Goofs Angel first baseman Charley Dees was the chief culprit for the home club. The Tigers were trailing 4-1 when they loaded the bases in the sixth with one out. Norm Cash then grounded to first base and Dees went to the bag instead of throwing home. One run scored and when Dees finally threw to the plate, catcher Hank Foiles let the ball get away from him to permit a second run to score. The Angels picked up an unearned nm in the seventh to increase their lead to 5-3. But Rocky Colavito lead off the Tigers's eighth with his 13th home run and before the side was retired Whitey Herzog's pinch double had scored two runs to put the Tigers ahead, 6-5. The four runs Detroit added in the ninth were just frosting on their victory cake. The loss snapped a three-game Los Angeles winning streak and eliminated their chance of gainbg ground on all the clubs ahead of them in the standings. Veteran relief pitcher Art Fowler, making his 35th appearance of the season and his sixth in the last 10 games, showed the toils of overwork as he gave up four runs including the pair that came home on Herzog's double and was charged with the loss. One Inning—One Win The victory went to Willie Smith, the third of four Detroit hurlers, who worked only one inning and gave up an unearned run. but was the pitcher of record in the three-run eighth inning that sent the Tigers on to victory. Don Lee and Mickey Lolich were the starters. Lee went seven innings and yielded three runs while Lolich gave up four in the five innings he worked. In the final analysis it was the failure of the Angel bullpen to come up to the emergency that cost them the game. Danny Osinski pitched to only two batters in the eighth and gave up Colavito's homer and a double to Bill Bruton. And after Fowler loaded the bases in the ninth, Julio Navarro gave up two singles and a double to bring in the four runs. But for tonight's second game in the series, the Angels called on their pitching star. Ken McBride, 10-7, to oppose Jim Bunning, 6-10, when the clubs resume action.

MOSCOW (UPI) - The United States was expected to win eight of the 11 men's events today in the start of the dual track meet against Russia, using its tradition al sprint power for a big halfway lead. Despite the absence of four Yank world record-holders, the United States, as usual, was favored to win the men's competition in the two-day carnival, while the Russian women were picked to score their fifth straight victory over the American girls. Separate scoreboards have been set up in the stadium for the men's and women's competition and the meet officially will be scored separately as agreed upon between the two nations. The Yank men picked to win events today are pole vaulter John Pennel of Northeast Louisiana State; Bob Hayenn Florida A&M in the 100-meters; Hayes Jones of Detroit in the 110-meter hurdles; Ralph Boston of Los Angeles in the broad jump; Dave Davis of the Marines in the shot put; Jim Dupree of Los Angeles in the 800- meters, Ulis Williams of Arizona State in the 400-meters and the 400-meter relay team of Gilbert Hayes.

The women sprinters competing in today's program—and favorites to win—are Edith McGuire of Atlanta and Wyomia Tyus of Griffin, Ga.
