Dorothy Hamill seeks world title Thura.,Marck4,1171 GREELEV (Ctto.) TRIBUNE GOTEBORG,Sweden (API- Olympic ggld medalist Dorothy Hamill of Riverside, Conn., began her quest for the ladies' world figure skating championship today, while Britain's John Curry, also a gold medalist at Innsbruck last month, battled East, Germany's Jan Hoffmann and' ..Vladimir .Kovalev of the Soviet Union for the men's title. T)ie Soviet pair of Irina Rod- nina and her husband, Alexander Zaitsev, captured their fourth world title Wednesday, winning by a wide margin over East Germany's Homy Kermer and Rolf Oesterreich. The bronze medal went to Russia's Irina Vorobyeva and Alexander Vlasov. Tai Babilonia and Randy Gardner, the Los Angeles teenagers, missed their chance lor a medal when Miss Babilonia took two spills. They finished in fifth place, Just as they did in the'Winter Olympics at Innsbruck. Miss Hamill was attempting to wrestle the world title from defending champion Dlanne de Leeuw, who lives in Los Angeles but represents The Netherlands. The ladies' opening compulsory figures began today's program. The men's title was to be decided with tonight's free skating. Kovalev held on to his lead over the favored Curry after Wednesday's program. Hoffmann, the 1974 world champion, closed in on the two leaders while Canada's artistic Toller Cranston, who won the short program, did not improve his position enough to be a serious contender for the gold medal. Cranston is in the battle for a medal, however. Both Curry and Cranston excel in free skating. Curry missed a jump in the short program, while Kovalev omitted a triple jump. Hoffman was faultless in his program and was well ahead of Dave Santee of Oak Park, III., who was in fourth place. Terry Kubickt of Long Beach, Calif., America's top free skater, was seventh, behind surprisingly strong Mlnoru Sano of Japan. In the ice dancing, five-time world champions and recent Olympic champions, Ludmila Pakhomova and Alexander Gorshkov of the Soviet Union, were well ahead. But Americans Colleen O'Connor and Jim MilltiS of Colorado Springs, Colo., were contesting with Russian and East German pairs for the silver and bronze medals. The ice dancers were to complete their compulsory dances today. Miss Babilonia fell on her back when she landed backwards after a double axel jump and also went down on the pair's final spiral. But she and Gardner still received 5.6s scores from the judges for technical merit and slightly less for artistic impression. "It was too bad we had those misses as the program went well otherwise," Gardner Mid. "But the judges still g»ve us pretty good marks and we are gunning for the top honors within four years time." The other American pair, Alice Cook and William Fauver of Cleveland, finished ninth, two places higher than at Innsbruck.
