TRIBUNE « fmof oorne here Thursday SCSC takes 2-1 lead in series with Bears '.'·;" ; B/JiM kiMMiTt '.''..· TrlbBfte Spirts Writer .-PUEBLO' . --· Southern .Colorado "State College took a one game lead over the ;Universily of Northern Colorado in the best-of-four baseball series by holding on for a 5-4 win Saturday night. After falling behind 5-0, the Bears found life in the top half of the eighth inning and rallied for four runs on four hits, set- .ting up what turned out to be an ·excitement-filled ninth inning. ··' Relief pitcher Steve Gjertson collected one of his four strikeouts, and the Bear defense got two additional routine fielding plays in the bottom of the eighth to send the one-run game into the final inning.

UNC in the top of the ninth. Strain tagged his second hit of the game and put UNC in position to tie the game with one out: Jeff Cheek then hit a high fly ball which was dropped by the SCSC second baseman who regained control and tossed it to second forcing Strain out and allowing Cheek to reach first. With two outs and Cheek on first base this brought up Rick Ziegler who was already two for four at the plate on the evening. After a disputed interference call on SC catcher Gary Eaker, Ziegler slammed a long drive down the left field line, sending Cheek past third on his way in for what appeared to be the lying run. But, a perfect throw from Dave Sellers to Eaker was there in time to tag Cheek out at home plate as he slid across. Ziegler turned in his best hitting performance of the season as he totaled three hits in five times at bat, including two doubles. SCSC started the games scoring in the fourth inning as it collected two runs on three hits, while UNC was charged with two errors. The Indians added two more runs in the fifth inning as UNC pitcher John Gabbert gave up his eighth hit before being relieved by Gjertson. The final SCSC run came in the seventh inning when Doug Nelson singled, followed by Eaker who doubled sending Nelson all the way from first for the SCSC fifth run. · ' UNC collected its runs all at once as SCSC pitcher Gary Lown began to lire in the top half of the eighth inning. The Bears started the eighth off at the top of their batting order. Strain reached first on a walk, but was forced out at second on a fielder's choice hit by Cheek. Ziegler then hit his first double of the game, sending Cheek home for the first Bear score. With Ziegler on second Bob DeMeo broke out of a hitting slump and drove Ziegler in. DeMeo advanced in second on the throw home. Doug May then hit a single moving DeMeo to third. This brought up Stan Humbargar, UNC's designated pinch hitter, who slammed a double down the left, field line, driving in two runs. SCSC coach Pat Pine then sent in relief pitcher Lloyd Bailey who retired the next two UNC batters to end the scoring drive. The Bears will host Metro State and Air Force, (see Schedule) before they take on SCSC in the fourth game of the GPAC race on Thursday also at Jackson Field.

(AP) Eastern Mexico's Mike Boil was named lhe most out- slanding performer in the Kansas Relays which ended Saturday with five more university- college and open division meet records being broken and two others tied. Boit won the honor by a landslide in the voting of newsmen covering the event. He got 2514 votes lo one vote for Tad Scales of Lawrence, Kan., High School and one-half vole for Phillip Ndoo, Boil's .learnmale. Boit ran lhe mile in 4:00.2 in anchoring lhe Greyhounds to victory in lhe college division distant medley relay after winning the 6-mile Thursday. Scales pole vaulted 16 feet, a record in lhat high school event Ndoo had a winning time of 8:50.6 in lhe 3,000-meter steeplechase, a university-college event. The big feature of the four- day show was lhe Glenn Cun- ningham mile, won by Leonard Hilton of lhe Houston Slriders in 4:01.9. Hilton heal favored Dave Woltle of Bowling Green, Ohio, who turned in a 4:02.5. Hilton stayed well back throughout most of lhe race but broke out in from some 300 yards from lhe end and swepl past Wollle, lhe 800-meler champion in the Munich Olympics lo win by iliree yards. "I'm jusl happy my kick was as good as il was," said Hillon, who represented the United Stales in lhe 5,000-meter event in the Olympics. "I didn'l look back to see where Wollle was. That might have cosl me two sleps." Hillon, looking forward lo lhe 1976 Olympics in Monlreal, has no inlenlion of switching from 5,000 meters lo lhe mile. "I'm running well now but when I concentrate more on the 5,000meters,"hesaid, "I'll run even betler. I'm running the mile now jusl because il is easier lo get races." Saturday's five records were set by Marshall Smith of Colorado Stale Universily, Gregg Vandaveer of Kansas, Al Keuerbach of lhe Pacific Coasl Track Club, Terry Ziegler of Oklahoma and Wendy Koenig of the Colorado Gold Track Club. Smilh threw lhe discus 189 feet, 10 inches, breaking the 1969 record of 189-8 by Douglas Knop of Kansas. Vandaveer ran the 120-yard high hurdles in 13.5, one-tenlh of a second bel- ter than Harrison Dillard of Baldwin-Wallace 25 years ago. Feuerbach, who set lhe former record of 69-1 in 1972, put lhe shot 69-2'/ 2 . Ziegler, likewise, broke his own record of a year ago in lhe Kansas Relays maralhon, being timed in 2:21:15.

(AP) -- "Oil, that's fun," Jack Nicklaus said. "That's the whole thing." "That's what this game is about. Here was Lee in a spurt and then I made birdies on three of lhe lasl seven holes. "That's the whole thing--responding lo a challenge, playing the way you wanl to play, doing the things you want to do, and winning. On the other hand, if you lose, il kills you." Nicklaus had just, scored a record fourlh career victory in lhe $200,000 MON Y-Tournamenl of Champions, a golf event he ranks right behind lhe big four of lhe U.S. and Brilish Opens, lhe Maslers and PGA. 'When I was able lo come back like lhal, wilh three birdies on the last seven holes, well, that's the way lo finish a tournament. I'm doubly pleased about il because my other two wins this year were both marginal, in playoffs." The Golden Bear, who strelched his season's leading money-winning total to $140,004, fashioned a rallying four-under- par 68 on the tough, demanding, 7,114-yard La Cosla Country Club course. He had a 72 hole tolal of 276, 12 under par. Trevino, who actually took a two stroke lead al one time, couldn't hang on. His 67 was lhe besl round of lhe warm, sunny day bul his 277 lolal was one stroke loo much to record lhe viclory he needed lo become pro golf's fourlh $1 million winner. "Well, Micro's nexl year," Trevino said. "I've always said Nicklaus is the grealcsl golfer in lhe world. Any lime I can beal him, I'm lucky." But lhe challenge seemed to serve only as a spur lo the 33- year-old Golden Bear who now is the season's first three-time, winner. He wedged lo about a half fool for a birdie on lhe 12lh hole just as Trevino was Ihree- pulling for bogey on the 13th. Thai was a Iwo-slroke swing in Nicklaus' favor and suddenly they were lied. Trevino birdied lhe 15lh just as Nicklaus did the same on lhe 14th, but Jack went ahead to stay on the 15lh where he punched his approach just to lhe left of the flag. The ball sucked back lo pin high and he had a little four-foot putt for birdie. Nicklaus made it and had the margin he needed. Trevino picked up $23,404 for second and pushed his career earnings lo some $985,137. Only Nicklaus, Arnold Palmer and Billy Casper have gone past $1 million in a career. Jim Colbert was Ihird with a 69-281 and Chi Chi Rodriguez was next with 09-282. Thank You!

In today's world, buying and keeping a car can be somewhat discouraging. So we've engineered a car to help change things a little. It's a car with a 2-liter electronically fuel injected engine designed to give you increased performance over last year, yet meet or exceed exhaust emission standards set for 1974. It's a car with impact absorbing bumpers that can save you as much as 15% on your collision insurance rates in most states. And it's a car with front-wheel drive, for better control, traction and handling on any kind of road. It's also a car with rack nnd pinion steering, the most precise steering system there is, and power-assisted four-wheel disc brakes, for confident fade-free stops. We make it huge on the inside, and compact on the outside. We make it a luxurious sedan with a fold-down rear seat, so it's part station wagon, too. And we make it with roll-cage construction that's practically all hand welded, to give you a truly strong, long lasting, safe car. The Saab 99LE. We make it to be what most cars are not, but what all cars should be. Saab. It's what a car should be. BEETHAM AUTO SALES 2435 8th Avenue Weld County Saab Dealer Ph. 353-3437
