Howie Johnson had a 70 for 272 and was followed by Jack Nicklaus alone at 273 after a 68. Defending champion Billy Casper was well back at 278. . "Somehow I had a feeling Dave was going to make it," Lunn said BOLBOGUES of the ball to the surprise of ner cnaperone, veteran Bill Shoemaker. Seymour Rose's 2-year-old filly trailed Andrew and Dan Gehl's Belle Noire by four lengths at the top of the stretch of the 6-furlongs, $175,000 Arlington-Washington Lassie Stakes at Arlington Park. Then, she zoomed through the stretch to win by a nose. Shoemaker didn't think Cleveland Lane would make it. "I thought so even in the last 30 yards," he said. "Belle Noire must have just collapsed at the end because I wasn't picking her up that fast." Belle Noire saved the place over 13-1 shot Dixie Wind, with Clever Lane's stablemate, Bright Affair, fourth in the field of nine. Mrs. W.R. Kelly's previously unbeaten Gallamar stumbled and fell leaving the stall. Her jockey, Fernando Valdizan was trambled and taken to a hospital. The filly apparently was not injured. ANOTHER RACE In another six-figure race, El-mendorf's 4-year-old Verbatim won the $109,400 inaugural running of the Govenor Nicolls Handicap at Belmont Park. Elsewhere, Clement' L Hirsch's Argentine-bred Figone-ro set a world record of 1:4614 for 1 miles in winning the $53,650 Del Mar Handicap for 3-year-olds. And, Easy Jet won the $600,000 All-American Futurity for quarter-horses at Ruidoso Downs in 20.48 to earn first money of $159,000. DARLINGTON, S. C. (AP) The success which eluded Lee Roy Yarbrough for most of his nine years on NASCAR's blue ribbon Grand National stock car racing circuit finally has come to the 30-year-old driver. He won his sixth major speed way race of 1969 Monday, bolting past David Pearson on the final lap of the prestigious Southern 500 before a limp crowd of 65,000. Yarbrough now has won stock car racing's so - called triple crown, the Daytona 500, the Charlotte World 600, and the Southern 500 Becoming the first driver to do it in one sea son. A LENGTH In winning the rain-shortened Southern 500 by less than a car length, the Ford driver earned $21,850 to bring his season's total to a record $164,915. lamp OhamD s survivors ! 105.612 m.p.h.

Unser, of Albuquerque, N.M., Californians win overall race titles SALT LAKE CITY, Utah (AP) Californians won six of seven over-all titles Monday, driving Porsches to victory in the feature events, in the wind- up of the 13th annual Great Salt Lake Road Races. Milt Minter of Hermosa Beach, Calif., took the lead in the Southwest Pacific Division Sports Car Clubs of America standings with a victory in the final race. Driving a Porsche 904, he edged Don Pike of Hermosa Beach by half a car length. Pike was in a 906 after beating Minter in the previous race in which both men drove Porsche 911s. Minter now has 44 points to 38 for teammate Alan Johnson. Overall-all finishes in other events: Formula Vee: Dick Hayes, Huntington Beach, Calif. Formula SCCA, Ford: D. R.

But this time he and 35-year- old Pearson, also in a Ford, staged a furious battle over the rainsoaked Darlington Interna tional Raceway for almost 100 miles, heading for a 7 p.m. cur few announced by race officials after rain delayed the action for 4V2 hours.

Then he added: "But I used to have a sore back all the time from shoveling coke at the Brockton Back Gas Works. For this I get paid better." "Inside the ring he was a lion, outside a lamb," was the way Walcott described Marciano. Former champ Sonny Liston said Marciano "was one of the greatest champions there ever was," and deposed champion Cassius Clay told a reporter Marciano was "the only one that would have given me some trouble." Although respected by those who fought him, Marciano's free-swinging, plodding style found little praise with the boxing experts. "However," Marciano "once remarked after his retirement, "20 years from now fight fans will look at my record and know I fought everybody around and never lost a fight.

(AP) - "Oh, boy," said big Bob Lunn about the strongest lan guage the hulking, placid guy uses "I could feel it coming on tor a couple of months. "And it's nice, real nice." The mild-mannered, 210-pound husky was talking about his fourth-hole playoff victory over weather-wilted Dave Hill Monday for the $20,000 top prize in the Greater Hartford Open Tournament. They had tied at the end of the regulation 72 holes at 268, 16 under par on the 6.568-vard. par-71 Wethersfield Country Club course, and had matched pars on the first three playoff holes before Lunn rolled in a 22-foot putt for the winner. "This game can't be rushed. You've got to capitalize on your good shots and not let the bad ones get you down," Lunn said. And that's exactly the formula he used in whipping the thin, tiring Hill. Hill, three strokes behind with three holes to play, closed bird- le-oirdie-birdie for a 66 that tied him with Lunn, who had 'a final 67.
