"I'm hsppy about my score on this course." He should be. It tied the competitive record for the 2-year-pld layout. Spyglass Hill, named for the peak in Robert Louis Stevenson's novel, has played the toughest of the three courses Used .in the four-day Crosby clambake. And ttiree of Pott's closest rivals for the top spot^Bruce Devlin, Mike Fetchjqk and Frank . Wharton--got their chance to do 'a little aging to day. To make it worse, the Monterey Peninsula, where the weather was ideal the first two days, • got word rain was in the offing. Casper, who has won this tournament twice, had the eas iest assignment today, Cypress Point, wilich. has produced the best scores, Pott drew Pebble Beach. The whole show, televised nationally today and Sunday, winds up at Pebble with the 60 top professionals and the 40 leading pro-amateur teams. The 168 pros and their amateur partners must have played all three courses—each playing to 72 par —before the cut tonight. Pott and his amateur partner, " Virgil Sherrill of New York, held their team advantage in the Pro-Am Division with a two- day total of 124. They were two strokes better than Pro Ron Cerrudo and E. Harvie Ward, two-time national amateur champion who popped back into contending role for tha first time in several years. Should Pott's'lead hold up, .he would walk off with the $16,090 top pro money, plus the $2,700 that goes to the winning professional in the Pro-Am. Casper came on strong Friday after an opening Spyglass Hill round of 73 and pounded out a 69 I at Pebble Beach to stand one 1 stroke back of Pott at 142. Billy | won . the Southern. California j Open last weekend after a five 1 week rest and said he was play | ing well—"better than I : have been...." That could mean more trouble for Pott than the greens at Spy glass. Those greens claimed many victims the first two days, Even Pott wasn't hsppy, "You can't repeat what I think," he said.. If -Pott felt that .way, how about Jack Nicklaus, wiio went . to a 75 and 146 Friday on Spy- i glass, including two three-putt holes?

(AP) - With a record gross of more than $3 million already assured, professional football's second annual Super Bowl has started its kickoff countdown. "I think we're ready to play," said Green Bay coach Vince Lombardi, whose National Football League champion Packers remain two touchdown favorites over American League champion Oakland. Raider coach John Rauch said his club is also set. "We feel we've covered all the situations that need to be covered," said Rauch. "We'll be ready for the game." Miami's Weather Bureau may not be. A forecast Friday night called for scattered .rainfall Sunday with skies clearing dropping to between 65 and 70. "Weather," said Lombardi, whose Packers won the NFL title in 13 below zero temperature at Green Bay, Wis., two weeks ago, "js in the mind." So js money and that's a major part of what the Super Bowl is all about. With a sellout of more than 75 000 assuref for the Orange Bowl and tickets scaled at $6, $8 am $12, the gate gross is expectei to be $796,822. Add to that the $8.5 million paid by the Colum bia Broadcasting System for network radio-television rights and the game income goes over the $3 million plateau. Winning js worth $15,000 per man, with losers taking home $7,500 apiece. At those prices, preparation has been intense for both clubs. son and Mercein coming out of the backfield. Daryl Lamonica will do Oakland's throwing to Billy Cannon, Fred Biletnikoff and Bill Miller, with Hcwritt running backs.

Defensive tackle Tom Keating is stji! nursing a gimpy right ankle injured in the title game against Houston, if he can't start, Carlton Oats will get the call. At strong safety, Rodger Bird has been troubled by a bad back and Warren Powers could, start-instead, .. Lombard! ended the only speculation-.about his starting lineup Friday, when he named Chuck Mercein and Connie Anderson as his running backs. That leaves Ben Wilson and Travis Williams for backup duty, but Lombardi made it clear that both will be used. Williams, of course, set an NFL record by returning four kickoffs for touchdowns this season. Would the Raiders risk kicking to the rookie flash from Arizona State? "I'm not saying we will am I'm not saying we won't," sai< Rauch. "If I told you," he smiled at a reporter, "you'c tell Lombard!." Lombardi might not realk care. The Green Bay coach plays down the chance of the Raiders pulling any surprises against the Packers and, con versely, is sure nothing he could do would stun Oakland. "You d» what you do best, he said. "If you try to pull new play, it's just as new to your players as it is to the othe team and there's a good chanc of it misfiring." Rauch agreed. "The door is always open f a gadget play like a reverse on offense or safety blitz on de fense," he said. "We always prepare for'the possibility of facing.the unexpected, and I'm sure Green Bay does too." So what it boils down to is a game of basics. Both clubs present balanced attacks, with Green Bay relying on the passing of Bart Starr to Carroll Dale, Boyd Dowler and Mary Fleming as well as Ander- WILLINGTON, New Zealand (AP) — Chris Amon of New Zealand, driving a 2.4 liter .g Ferrari, won the 75-mile Levin International Auto Race today, according to unofficial results.
