Favor Pendet In Tonights Middleweight Title Bout Palmer leads Masters Play By Two Strokes AUGUSTA, Ga. (UPI)-. Palmer;'who' can win''em coming from behind or in front, led: the Masters field ·two strokes'going into the found today and went put to. prove that playing golf still is his pti mary business. ' They've been saying, that his game has been suffering he has too many outside inter. ests, but Palffier denied he came here; declaring that the only thing on his mind was Masters arid "I'm here solely ·play"golf, nothing else." And. play it he did Friday wl he ; shot. a six under par 66 overtake · ' ' defending - champion Gary'-Player and forge'into the lead-will) a 36-hole total of 136, eight strokes- under par for holes over the testing 6,980-yard Masters course. . 'Begins Drive Early Noted for his come-from-behuid linishes.-Palmer appeared to starl his drive earlier than usual and only smiled when told that Player said he would rather be two strokes behind at this point than two strokes ahead. "That suits me fine," said Palmer. "I like it just where I am now." / He played so brilliantly in Friday's second round that Player could only shake his head. "Palmer is the most amazing golfer I have ever seen," said the little South African. "There is simply no heading him off--although the Lord knows I'm trying the best I can. But what is there to do? I'm hitting a three iron for my second shot when he's using a six." Although admitting he shot "as good golf yesterday as I possibly could," Palmer still complained that "I made a few mistakes." "I missed a shot at six and hit a bad seven iron at seven and I misjudged a nine iron shot to the ninth green," he pointed out. But he more than made up for those lapses as he carded eight birdies and two bogies on the fantastic round. Player Drops Back Player, who led Palmer by three strokes going into the second round, tried his best to stay in front, but his one under par ·Arnold 71, which included an eagle, just by wasn't' good enough. That gave running him.a total of 138, a stroke ahead by of U.S. Open champion Gene Lit- third tier. Four strokes behind Palmer came Gardner Dickinson with a second round 71 and a total of 141. At 142 were Dow Finsterwald, because with a second round 68; Julius Boros, with a 73 and Mike Sou- that when chak, with a 72.

Young Jack Mcklaus, who with Doug Sanders were second choices to Palmer in the pre-tournament betting"just made it at 149. .; Sanders had 148.

Los Angeles Dodgers have quired the unsettling habit of owing early inning leads -- mething that might disturb eir sleep during the regular ason. In fact, the way Los Angeles s been fading in. the late tangs Manager Walt Alston must lieve he is having a nightmare. When the Dodgers blew a 6-1 argin and a later 8-G lead to ish in an 8-8 lie with San Fransco Friday, it marked Ihe fourth ,ie in the last six games Los ngelcs failed to retain early ads. The Giants, coming back for ve in the fourth inning and then aining a tie on Matty Alou's rich homer in the bottom of the ghth of the' shortened game, osed out their Arizona schedule th the conlest in Phoenix. The game was shortened so th clubs could catch planes, os Angeles to San Diego for lo- jht's game with the Milwaukee raves and San Francisco lo Sail ike Cily for a game with Clevend. Giving Alston a bit of en. couragement was the fact thai if Dodger starter Johnny Podres possibly the team's opening day litcher at Chavez Ravine, gave up only one run. However, when Podres left af- er three innings Ed Roebuck came in and promptly whacked on the knee by a blow rom the bat of San Francisco's Job Bowman. Roebuck, fighting lis way back from a 1961 arm in- ury, then got whacked some more for five earned runs -- in eluding Felipe Alou's three-run homer. Podres shocked just aboul everyone by hitting his first home run in professional baseball of Juan Marichal in the second with Daryl Spencer on base. After San Francisco lied the ;ame, Los Angeles jumped aheat t-6 on a double by Spencer Waury Wills' single, a hit bats man and Frank Howard's single :n the sixlh.

But Early continued his fine pring performances when he urned in five shutout innings Fri- ay in the White Sox' 8-4 victory ver the National League cham- ion Cincinnati Reds. Wynn, browing with his old speed and oosenscs, allowed only three sin- les and looked ready to take a egular turn on the mound for the ox.
