wAclNlcfliry Notches ertome Victory Pair Share Top Spot in Citrus Play ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) Scat-tergun Jack Nicklaus and surprising Miller Barber trimmed five strokes off par with 67s Thursday, wresting the first- round lead of the Citrus Open Golf Tournament away from five earlier finishers deadlocked at 68. Barber, 36-year-old winner of only two tournaments in 10 years on the pro tour, was elated with his round in which he sank four long birdie putts. Short on Putt Nicklaus missed a chance to take charge in the $115,000 meet when he was short on a six-foot putt on the 18th green. New Zealand leftie Bob Charles, Diminutive Deane Beman, Tom Weiskopf, Don Mas-sengale, and Australia's Bruce Devlin were all home with 68s. Tied at 69 were Bert Yancey, John Lotz, Bob Murphy, and Lee Trevino. Veterans Gay Brewer and Ken Venturi were among the 70 shooters, with Arnold Palmer and two-time 1967 winner George Knudson of Canada shooting 71s. Player at 72 South African Gary Player, playing in his first U.S. tournament this year, shot a 72 along with Doug Sanders. Defending champion Julius Boros slipped to a 73. Nicklaus, gaily decked out in cherry-red slacks, drove into the pine trees on at least three holes and bounced a drive off a spectator on another hole, but fortunate bounces and deadly iron play got him out of trouble. He bogeyed only one hole despite the wild drives. Putting Helped Barber Barber, a Texas country club owner, rolled in birdie putts of 20, 12, 20, 12, and eight feet. Strong putting also helped Devlin, on the comeback trail after a disastrous showing in 1967. Weiskopf, only 25, but the leading money-winner on the tour this winter, never strayed over par in a steady round. Beman helped himself by shucking his shoes and stockings to hit his second shot out of the water on the 14th hole, which he parred. Massengale missed a chance to share the lead when a 20-foot putt for a birdie on the 18th rimmed the cup. Charles was wild with his drives but deadly with his putts to keep up with the leaders.

San Diego scored once in each period and left the rest to a fine defense and the goaltending of Kelly, who turned away 30 Buckaroo shots. Defenseman Gordon Sinclair scored at 16:46 of the first period to open the scoring. Warren Hynes' goal at 11:12 of the second period was his 14th of the year and then Dennis Huculak, another defenseman, scored at 16:06 of the third to cap the scoring.

(AP Wirephoto) Oklahoma City, St Peters Win NEW YORK (AP) - Tenth- ranked Duke, led relentlessly by its third-team All-American Mike Lewis, steamrollered cold-shooting Oklahoma City 97-81 Thursday night in the opening round of the National Invitation Basketball Tourna ment Elnardo Webster scored seven of his 51 points in the second overtime of the first game of the doubleheader to lead St. Peter's to a 102-93 victory over Marshall. St. Peter's rousing victory, that had a crowd of 17,602 in the new Madison Square Garden screaming throughout, was in direct contrast to Duke's routine march into next week's quarter-finals. The Blue Devils, with Lewis and Joe Kennedy each scoring seven points, jumped into a 14-7 lead and easily outdistanced the Chiefs. defending champ David Douglas scoreless in overtime to shock the Scots 54-45; speedy Jeff broke open a tight game with a 33-point third period to whip Surprising Celts Now Go Against Jefferson By REID ENGLISH Statesman Sports Writer COLISEUM, Portland (Special) Surprising McNary, favored Jefferson and Klamath Falls, and TYV champ Lake Oswego captured quarter-final victories in the 50th annual A-l State Basketball Tourney Thursday to gain Friday's semi-finals.

I HaYes ces Unseld . . . if 4 RAY STOSE On March 30, just 20 days before the general trout season gets underway, the Salem Flotilla of U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary will be holding its first session of Courtesy Motorboat Examinations for the year. The examina tions, which are free, will be held on that ? day at Vista Market parking lot. For those who live outside Salem, Vista Market is lo- cated between Commercial and Liberty 1 Streets in the south end of town. It should be pointed out that the examination is one of the services provided by the Coast Guard through the Coast Guard Auxiliary. It is un official and is made nnlv umm reauest. No V ------- . i - . or to any law enforcement agency. But those boats which do pass the examination are awarded a decal to be mounted on the boat and such a boat is usually by-passed by enforcement boats searching for equipment infractions Flares Important Safety Item . . . One additional item has been listed for this year's exami-tion in order for a boat to qualify for the decal each one, no matter what class, will have to have on board a distress flare. It is not a legal requirement according to Coast Guard or State Marine Board laws, but it is such an important, safety item that the courtesy exam will require it... As the Coast Guard-trained examiners go over a boat at the session, they will first look for the legal requirements for the class of boat being examined. This would include identification of the boat papers in order, numbers block type, properly spaced, distinctly visible. Adequate ventilation, where required, will be closely checked Life saving devices such as jackets or cushions will have to be of the approved type, of satisfactory condition, readily accessible and of the required number. Auxiliary requirements go a little further by stating there shall be one life saving device per berth and no less than two aboard. Fire extinguishers will need to be of the approved type, adequate in size, in satisfactory condition and be readily accessible. . . Angling Chances Good, Bad ... Where laws require it, the boat will have to have navigation lights and the examiners will check to see that the lights work properly. Above and beyond legal requirements the Auxiliary examiners will be checking to see that a boat's electrical wiring is in good shape. Also, the boat will have to have an anchor and line of suitable size and length for the vessel and operating area. ... Ah, those boys will be thorough. They'll be checking for that distress flare as well as a paddle or oar and a pump or bailer, which by the way, could be a bucket on board. But it must be remembered they are being thorough for only one reason your utmost safety on the water. The examiners are all volunteers who are giving up their Saturday to be of service to you, the public. The least you could do would be to equip your boat to the Auxiliary standards and, hike over to Vista Market on March 30 to earn that safety decal ... After a surge of excitement a week ago, Santiam steelhead-ing went into a slump since then. But more fish are arriving daily, so there could be good action on that neighborhood stream just any time . . . The new plant of rainbows in Devils Lake should be over the shock of getting dumped into strange waters, and may be hungrily waiting for the weekend anglers. The Alsea river is still running pretty heavily to spawned-out steelhead. Flounder fishing has been good in coastal bays. ... Oklahoma City, in fact, was so cold in the first half, hitting only 25.6 per cent, that Coach Abe Lemons, kept the club on i the floor and scrimmaged it during the intermission break, but it didn't help. Lewis, 6-foot-7, 225-pound senior, finished with 22 points. Rich Travis, Oklahoma City's honorable mention All-American, who hit only three of 15 shots from the field in the first half, finished with 28 points. Webster, whose scoring helped St. Peter's make up a 15-point deficit at the start of the second half, outscored Marshall 6-2 at the start of the second overtime, to break the 89-89 deadlock. Marshall had tied the score after regulation time at 83-83 on George Stone's layup with 43 seconds left, and missed two chances to win when Jim Davidson and Stone missed jumpers in the last seconds. With two regulars out on fouls, Webster took charge against taller Marshall in the first overtime with six points for an 89-87 lead, but Danny D'Antoni tied it with 90 seconds (Cont. page 18, col. 4) Basketball Scores HIGH SCHOOL A-l Tournament Consolation Round Wy'east 54.
