PAGE 4 SPORTS PARADE (R?g. U.S. Pat. Off.) By MILTON RICHMAN UPI Sports Writer NEW YORK (UPI) —Long ball hitting Paul Harney claims the only sure way to make any money en the golf tour is with a putter. No matter how often he and other tojp flight golfers emphasize thai point, the first club in the bag most players reach for is their driver, according to Harney. "Putting is by far the most important single .factor in winning any money on the tout and that still goes even if a fellow liits the ball 300 yards off the tee," says Harney, who does exceptionally well, on the tour even though he spends most ofi his time teaching golf at the Pleasant Valley Country Club in | Sutton, Mass. Not Glamorous 'I find youngsters extremely reluctant to work on their putting," Harney points out. "It isn't as glamorous to them as seeing a ball in flight. True, there's a decided advantage in hitting the long ball and I even teach youngsters to hit the ball as far as they can, but I also try to tell them putting is more important. •'If I had it to do .all over again, I'd concentrate rnore on putting. I didn't do it .enough so I'm erratic. Sometimes I putt very well, other times very poorly." Harney, along with, a-majority of the other pros, thinks Billy Casper is the finest putter on the tour today. "He worked harder on his putting game than anyone else I know," says Harney. "Casper went to extreme lengths and I'd have to say it has paid off handsomely for him. I think he's one of the greatest golfers who ever played the tour." Hits Long Ball Despite his relatively small frame, the slender, 150-pound Harney is right up there with the big boys with his tee shots. He has. on occasion, out-driven Jack Xicklaus, Arnold Palmer and George Bayer and once belted a drive only 10 yards short' of ~ the green' on" a' 440- yard hole in Tijuana. There's no known short cut to good putting, IJarney insists. The only way to improve it is by practice and more practice. "I've seen the best pros on the tour miss one-foot putts. I've missed my share myself. Yet you'll look over on' the green jand see a five-year-old kid do!things with a putter that a pro can't do in exactly that situation. "The putter is a fascinating instrument. I consider it more important than my driver." IttMto ftikut' BY BOB BREWSTER Outdoor Editor, „1 Mcrcur) OMoarli |JW SPRING TACKLE "TRAINING" Anglei's can take a tip from the pre-season warmups and training now underway in the baseball camps. Seeing that, equipment functions perfectly is' just as important to a fisherman as good physical condition is to a touted 20-game winner or the team's "big stick." Getting gear in. shape afttr a winter's layoff is vital to "%the • success of early -trips afloat, state the folks at Mercury ,outboards. If you don't, you're Jlke- ly to discover all sorts of problems . ... and all at the Wrong time. While most lot us were' ad r monished to prepare our gear last fall, such good advice has a strange habit: of - falling on closed ears . :.:' particularly ff the geese were-; flying. So haul out the tackle •box NOW,'while you have the tiiise. '• " Thoroughly-.clean reels, re- lubricating according to the makers specs. .;.<butuse greases sparingly. Check' line's for signs of weakness; snlp~off 10 feet of monofilament, if you haven't already jdone so. Remove that fly' line from the spool, and hang'in loose jcoiis.

The Celtics carry a two-game advantage over the Lakers into the Wednesday and Friday night Western games as they hunt their seventh straight playoff title, eighth crown in nine years, and fourth final playoff decision over a Laker club over that long championship span. ' Boston has been invincible on ifs home court thus far, beat- ipg Philadelphia four times and Los Angeles twice in home s»ames, but dropping all three visits to Philadelphia. ' The Celtics' Second victory in tjie final best-of-seven series ifi onday night was by no means as easy as . their - opener in \yhich they set. a pair of final playoff records. Jerry West;; was ' the major reason why tiie Celtics won by qnly six, 129-123, Monday night. He - shot over v under, around a^nd through-the usual sticky Boston defense to role up 45 personal points. Actually, the game• wasn't-as close as the final score indicates . since the Celtics" maintained a dozen- point iead through a.major part of' the fourth.'quarter. iBut West,; whose 45 points exactly' matched his minutes played, nevdr game up in his one-man drive to keep the Lakers- alive without the services qfi injured Elgin Baylor. 'Three' Celtics cornermen keyed the'victory. Tom Heinsohn,' Tom Sanders and Willie Naulls had combined for just 28. points .in the record 142.Sun­ day television ,effort.

Kokomc Relays faturday' One of the- finest track meets! By LEONARD A. GRANATO UPI Sports Writer For a guy who was banished to the bullpen one week ago because of a dismal spring training, Jim Maloney of the Cincinnati Reds made one heck of a fast comeback." The big righthander twirled a masterful one-hitter in Milwaukee Stadium against the Braves Monday, beating them 2-0 on Deron Johnson's second-inning, two-run home run. Only Denis Menke's bloop single into short left to open the eighth inning kept' Maloney, who was 15-10 last year* for the Reds, from becoming the first Cincinnati pitcher since Ewell Blackwell (1947) to pitch a no- hitter. Maloney walked only three and struck out eight in hurling the third one-hitter of his major league career while picking up his first victory against no defeats. Wade Blasingamc was the loser. He is now o-l. Put In Bullpen In 30 innings of spring training competition he had given up 40 hits and 28 runs. Manager Dick Sisler yanked him from the starting rotation and put him in the bullpen. '•I was told to throw on the sidelines and give the word when I was ready," Maloney said. "Last Friday we had a day off and I threw for a long time to Den Pavletich. Everything seemed to fall into place. No soreness, my pitches were doing what I wanted and I was getting them over." Two years ago Maloney lost a no-hitter when Ellis Burton of the Cubs got a hit: Last season Joe Christopher broke up his no-hitter pgainst the Mets. It's a good bet that the 207- pound, 6-foct 2-inch hurler will be back in the starting rotation. In other National League action Jim Bunning five-hit the Astros in leading the Phillies to an 8-0 shellacking over Houston and the Cubs crawled all over Cardinal pitcher Ray Sadecki in a 7-3 triumph. AL Games In the American League Los Angeles beat Detroit 4-2, the White . Sox downed Baltimore 2 and Kansas City romped stranded 12 baserunners. . The Cubs hopped on Sadecki in the first inning. Lead-off man Glenn Beckert greeted him with a double. Ron Santo doubled-, Billy Williams and Doug Clemens singled and Ernie Banks was intentionally walked. All this added to four runs and in came Cardinal reliever.- Ron Taylor. Banks and Clemens , later homered, Ernie's coming with Santo on base. Dick Ellsworth upped his pitching record to 2-0, while Sadecki is now 0-2. Major League Standings By United 'Press International National League' W L Pet.

The trade, which occurred last November, brought a promising young outfielder named Danny Cater to the Chisox in exchange for 35 year-old Ray Herbert, whom Philadelphia gambled would provide its pitching staff with enough experience and depth to win the National League pennant. Th: circumstances of that trade must have seemed all too similar to those that surrounded the deal in 1059 which sent Johnny Callison to Philadelphia, vvhere he subsequently reached. All-Star status. Callison, like Cater, was a promising ballplayer but Lopez gambled that veteran Gene Kreese would provide the team with enough power to repeat as American League champion—and lost. Phils Won First That first round went to the Phillies, but it now appears that the White Sox have gained a measure of revenge. Cater' has waded into American League pitching with a veu- aance, collecting nine hits in his first 14 at bats. And what's even more important to the power-hungry Chisox, Cater has proved he can hit the long ball.. He amply demonstrated this Monday night when he slammed a three-run homer to break open a tight game against the Baltimore Orioles in a 7-2 Chicago victory. Cater slammed his circuit shot off reliever Harvey Haddix in the eighth inning after being inserted in the game as a pinch-hitter in the seventh. On that occasion he grounded into a force play but gained a piece of history as the White Sox paraded five pinch swingers to the plate to tie an American League record. Bill Skowron and Ken 3erry also homered for O.i- ca^o, which hadn't productJ a'- four-bagger in six previous games. Tommy John, the h:ird- throwing lefty whom Ch : :a> acquired from Cleveland in the off-season, received credit lor .he victory although he needed help frcm Ed Tisher in the bst two innings. C:h3r AL Games In • other American Leas ic games, the Kansas Ci'y Athletics crushed the New York Yankees 8-£ as Jim Hcntiie stroked his third homer in three days and the Los Angeles Angels knocked the Detroit Tigers out of first place by virtue of a ' 1-2 victory. A dcinleheader between the Boston Red Sox and he Washington Senators was postponed because of wet ;rcunds and threatening w;a- the:\ Over in the National Lcagii". Jim Maloney twirled the third one-hitter of his major league career to give the Cincinnati Reds a 2-0 victory over Milwaukee, the Philadelphia Phillies blanked Houston 8-0 and the Chicago Cubs rocked St. Louis .7-3. The White Sox' pennant hopes, which, certainly have received a boost from the performance of Cater, look even better when assessed against the Yankees' play to date.
