Casons Breeze to Trio Of Weekend Wins The Dud Casons of Blylhe- ville's American Legion keep rolling along. Saturday night, they plastered Vi'hitehaven, 14-4. Yesterday at Tuckerman, they won 8-3 and 8-i. Saturday, Hampton and Mclaughlin "teamed .to hold the visitors reasonably well, save for a three-run outburst in the sixth. Meanwhile, the hitters of Coach Dwight Williams were waxing fat on Whitehaven pitch- Ing. All told, they got only ten hits, but they broke things rather open in the final inning When two walks, an error and six hits produced eight runs. Whilehaven, Batcman Yarbrbugh had some key hits in the final inning. Yesterday at Tuckerman, Me- Kinney turned in a three-hitter in the first game. He gave up one run in each of the last three innings when his control wasn't quite sharp. He allowed only three hits. Stan Williams went four for four in that first game yesterday. Yarbrough was two for three. The Casons used another big inning to seal the win. This time it was the sixth when they used hits by Williams and Yarbrough, plus stolen bases by each of these two and three er- and rors to produce five runs. In the second game, Bobby George just narrowly missed a no-hitter. The lone hit off George came in the fourth inning. George fanned 10 and walked only one. Normally, he's the third baseman for the Casons. It was a considerably juggled lineup which Williams sent against Tuckerman in the second game. The only regulars were used at back-up positions. Other than that, Williams used all reserves. Forrester was two for three and Harper was two for two. Tomorrow ,the Casons travel to Rector for a 7:30 game.

Casper Passes Palmer In Golf Dollar Derby f By JOE MOOSHIL ' 'CHICAGO (AP) - Billy Casper, in command of himself and his game, won the Western Open Sunday by letting a corps of youngsters flounder in his wake and took another stride past faltering Arnold Palmer. The 35-year-old Casper shot a steady one-under-par 35-35—70 for a 283 total, the only score to better Medinah No. 3's par of 284 for 72 holes. He picked up the top prize oE $20,000 to wrest the PGA money-winning lead from Palmer, whom he defeated in a playoff for the National Open crown last week. * * * Casper took dead aim at less experienced youngsters su<* as 24-year-old Kermit Zarley, 28- year-old Homero Blancas and 29-year-old Tommy Aaron. Aaron went into the final round with a one-stroke lead over the field, Richeys Aim For Record f By GEOFFREY MILLER .LONDON (AP) - Cliff and Nancy Richey had a chance to make tennis history today by becoming the first brother-and- Eister duo to reach the Wimbledon singles quarter-finals together. After a weekend of waiting in the rain, the Richeys, of Dallas, Tex., were among the first competitors as the second week of the tournament got under way-Nancy, 23, is almost there. She led Kathy Harter, of Seal Beach, Calif., 6-2, 2-0 before their fourth round mstch was baited by rain Saturday. •Cliff, 19, had a far tougher task. He was paired against Tony Roche, the Australian left- hander who won both the Italian and French titles this year and is seeded No. 2. , Roche has nursed an injured leSt ankle through the first three rounds, and has dropped only one set in that lime, -Richey has nothing to trouble Kim except his erratic temperament. He battled through two four-setters and one five- setter last week to reach the fourth round. Besides Richey, America has only one hope left for the men's Kile _ Dennis Ralston, the 23- year-old Bakersfield, Calif., star, who has already reached the quarter-finals. Three Australians are also in the last eight - Roy Emerson, the defending champion, Owen Davidson and Bob Hewitt. Manuel Santana, the colorful court artist from Spain, was on the brink of joining them. He had a 2-0 sets lead over Bobby Wilson of Britain when rain interrupted their match on Saturday.

Gay Brewer, with a 34-37—71, finished second with a 286, three strokes behind the winner, and took down second money of $12, 000. Aaron blew to a 75 and Zarley shot a 74 as the youngsters settled for 287 totals good for a third-place tie and $6,250 each. "I think it's a little tougher for them," said Casper in reference to the younger set's fail ure to catch him. "You'll notice Brewer, a seasoned pro, stood right in there. But the kids get a little excited. * * * "I know how it Is," said Casper. "I went through it myself. But I played the game exactly as I would have if anyone else happened to be chasing me." Palmer, shooting a final round of 38-34—72 for 289, was not among those chasing Casper land finished in a tie for ninth. JAmie took down only $2,400 giving him $65,817 for the year.

THl FASTKT QUARTtR-MILl GUMBO TRACK IN THE SOUTH Terrell Hopes to Prove Something with Jones By HAROLD V. RATL1FF HOUSTON (AP) — Ernie Terrell, a towering man who thinks ie should be called world's leavyweight boxing champion because he represents the only world association, tries to boost lis claim here Tuesday against tough Doug Jones. * * * Terrell, recognized by the World Boxing Association but not accorded such distinction in New York, California and Massachusetts and by many fans, will be clashing witti the fellow who gave Cassius Clay, Ernie's chief tormentor, a rough evening. Sunday ^'s By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS PITCHING — Gaylord Perry, Giants, snapped Cincinnati's eight-game winning streak by hurling San Francisco to a two- hit, 10-0 victory wbilt lifting his record to 10-1.

And it is on this basis that Terrell expects to gain the respect iie figures is due a cham- lion "who has beaten all the iood boys." "1 think I'll beat him bad," Terrell said as he wound up training with a fast four rounds against a couple of sparring jartners who each received a strong right-hand shot. "I probably will knock him out but if I don't it will still be a bad beating," glowered tiie 6- foot-6 Terrell. "That ought to lelp wipe away this thing that's ranging over me that Clay is !he real champion." * * * Clay generally is regarded as [he heavyweight champion, which infuriates Terrell, who never has met Cassius except in a gym for a sparring session. Terrell has been talking so much about Clay in his training here that Jones says Ernie must be confused about whom he is fighting Tuesday night. "I'll have to straighten him out," quipped Jones, who will be five inches shorter and 20 pounds lighter when they climb into the ring at .Sam Houston Coliseum at 8 p.m., CST, for 15 rounds, and will depend on superior speed to carry him through. An examination of the records ol the two would indicate Terrell should be a solid favorite. They started fighting within a year of each other and Terrell has a 38-4 record compared to PACIFIC COAST Saturday's Results Oklahoma City 7, Tacoma 2 Indianapolis 3, Denver 1 Spokane 6, Vancouver 4 Tulsa 11, Seattle 10 San Diego 10, Hawaii 1 Sunday's Results Hawaii 7-7, San Diego 5-4 Denver 7, Indianapolis 6 Oklahoma City 5, Tacoma, 4 10 innings Phoenix 4, Portland 3 Seattle 5-4, Tulsa 3-0 Vancouver 7, Spokane 4 MINORS— TEXAS LEAGUE W.
