If he makes a buck, so much the better. Sunday, Arnold, a post office employe, had the fun and comradeship as usual but also displayed some bowling expertise along the way . . . enough to fashion a 732, including 50 pin handicap, and gain a tie for fifth place in the men's division. Arnold was the only man or woman of the over 500 rolling LEN ARNOLD in the tournament at Riviera Lanes Sunday to hit the Top 10. The 175 average bowler opened with a 182 game and followed with a 223 before closing out with a booming 277 effort, just two pins shy of the high single in the tournament, a 279 rolled earlier by Green Bay's John Hiller. The 682 scratch was the highest of the season for Arnold, though he previously had logged a 700 national honor count. The 277 was his best ever. "I've hit in the 260s before but never this high," he said. Arnold had a few problems to start with but said, "Once I moved over, the ball seemed to go all right. I had to figure a way to get rid of the dive at the end. My ball was moving too much right at the end and I was coming up with a split." PIN PATTER - Peshtigo's Jerry Reif paced the men on the day's opening squad with a 566-118684 while Green Bay's Judy Bourassa topped the women with a 521-88609 iBti.nrt niti trim i igtL ' 6th AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) -There Jack Nicklaus stood on the 16th hole Augusta's par three Red Bud hole looking at a 40-foot sidehill putt that mast have looked more like a mile. His ears were still ringing from the cheers of the thousands lining the long par five No. 15 just behind him where tall Tom Weiskopf had just knocked home a 12-footer for a birdie that sent him into the lead of the 39th Masters Golf Tournament with three holes to play. "Sometimes you get a feeling about these things," Nick-1 a u s said afterward. "I thought I could make the putt. I decided to use a different style. I decided to hand-stroke the putt rather than hit it. "I knew Tommy, watching from the tee, would have a hard time playing the 16th after watching me make a two. So I struck it and it rolled in. That, for me, was the tournament." A momentarily shaken Weiskopf proceeded to leave his five-iron tee shot 80 feet short on No. 16 and watch his approach putt roll to the left, still 18 feet away. He bogeyed and there was a two-shot shift in those dying moments of one of the greatest golf tournaments ever played. "I got the two shots back that I had lost on the 14th," Nicklaus said. Thousands pouring over Augusta's floral acres and millions viewing on television watched the battle go down to the final hole a no-quarter, no-choke shootout involving the three finest golfers of the age. Nicklaus emerged the winner, an unprecedented fifth Masters, his 15th major crown, the first leg on the only honor that still evades him the elusive Grand Slam, encompassing the Masters, U.S. and British Opens and the PGA, all in a single year. Nicklaus finished with a four-under-par 68 for a 72-hole score of 276 but called it "the greatest Masters I have ever played, better than when I set the record (271) in 1965. Weiskopf, a tall princely man with a swing of graceful power, and young, tow-headed Johnny Miller, at 27 rated by many as Nicklaus' heir apparent, were just one shot behind at 277, both barely missing birdie putts on the final green . . . Peshtigo's Ruby Never-man just missed a triplicate with a 153 game after a pair of 154s and Green Bay's Barbara Smeester earned a steak dinner at the Spot Supper Club for picking the 6-7-10 split. Karla DcGroot, wife of 1974 men's champ Roger DeGroot, led the women on the noon squad with a 498-114612. Roger will try his hand in two weeks . . . The men were led by Green Bay's Wayne Tebon with a 644-48692 . . . Suring's Dorothy Trevor and Lee Gerndt each earned a steak at the Spot by toppling the 6-7-10 and Suring's Tom Servais just missed a triplicate with two 151s after a 150 opener. At 1:30, Pat Nero paced the ladies with a 541-50591 and earned a steak at the Zuider Zee for stringing five strikes . . . Arnold took home two steaks en route to his series, one at the Zuider Zee for six strikes in a row and one at the Sportsman's Lodge for his 277, which topped the 255 plateau . . . Linda Allen also earned a Zuider Zee steak. Manitowoc's Ron Van-denhouten rolled a 593-104697 and Reedsvllle's Bonnie Korstad a 550-68618 to lead the 3 p.m. squad. Reeds-ville's Barb Maertz won a Spot steak when she picked the 4-7-10 and Reedsville's De-loris Peik just missed a triple' with a 147 sandwiched between two 148s. The day's final shift at 4:30 p.m. was led by Karen Tilly of Green Bay with a 515-94609 and Pulaski's Leonard Mastey with a 569-100669 . . . Green Bay's Fred Greene had the highest triplicate of the tournament when he tossed three games of 188.

Perry gave up a first inning home run to John Briggs, then checked the Milwaukee Brewers on four hits. The 36-year-old righthander's Cleveland teammates, shut out on three hits by Broberg for eight innings, scored three ninth inning runs on a home run by John Lowenstein and a two: run double by (John Ellis to win 3-1. The Indians thus salvaged one victory in the three game series, snapped a three game Brewers' winning streak and prevented them from taking the sole lead in the American League East.

Aaron hit No. 600 of his record 733 home runs off Perry four years ago and batted .310 against him in 10 National League seasons. This time he was called out on strikes three times, once with a runner on second, and grounded into a bases loaded double play. "I threw him sliders, fast balls, fork balls, kept him looking at different things," Perry said. "I never try to pattern myself with a great hitter like him. I got him out four times, but he's been four-for-four against me more times than I've gotten him out. Harv Betts Wins State Ring Title FOND DU LAC (PG) - Green Bay's Harvard Betts won the 125-pound division and was awarded outstanding boxer of the meet in the State Amateur Boxing Championships, which concluded here Saturday.

Aaron, who has only two hits in his first 16 times at bat as a Brewer, said Perry had thrown several fork balls and palm balls to him in spring training. "I was looking for those, but he threw me some fast balls away," Aaron said. "I approached him the same way I approach everyone else swing the bat, swing at strikes. I know what Gaylord was trying to do. It was a matter of me adjusting to it, but he made some good pitches." goals.

Yount doubled two innings later, raising his average to .500.

Perry retired Aaron on strikes for the third out with Coluccio on second in the eighth. Broberg, the winner in Boston Wednesday, allowed only one Indian to reach scoring position until Lowenstein led off the ninth with his homer.

Pinch runner Ken Berry was retired at the plate on Charlie Spikes' grounder and Boog Powell flied to short left for the second out, but Ellis followed with his opposite field double. "I think Broberg had better location than he used to have with Texas," Ellis said. "He looked confident and made good pitches all day. I thought he threw a great game."
