BILLY THE KID 13TH U.S. Skiers Fail in Austrian Run Combined News Services .KITZBUESEL, Austria . J- A daring Swiss veteran, Dumeng Giovanoli, sped through the rain and mist Friday for a slender lead after the first of two races in the men's giant slalom event of the Hahnenkamm Ski Festival. '-The giant slalom, held instead of the originally scheduled downhill event, will end today. " It was a bad day for the Americans, with Bill Kidd of Stowe, Vt., placing 13th for the best U.S. showing. Other U.S. competitors were strung out in the rear, as far back as 84th, a place given to Spider Sabich of Kyburz, Calif., after he reported late for his start. ' Giovanoli, 29, raced down the 1,700 meter course--a little more than a mile--in 1 minute, 33.27 seconds. Andrzej Bachlecia of Poland was second in 1': 33.92 and Heini Messner of Austria was third in 1:34.02. Skiers who were not disqualified will compete in the second run today, with the winner to be determined on the best total time of the two runs. Other U.S. placings were: Eric Poulsen, Olympic Valley, Calif., 33rd in 1:37.89; Rich Chaffce, Kill- land, Vt., 34th in 1:37.89; Bob Cochran, Richmond, Vt., 57th in 1:40.92; 70th, Dennis McCoy, Bishop, Calif., 1:43.59 and Rudd Pyles, Frisco, Colo., 72nd in 1:43.71.

At Maribor, Yugoslavia, an unseasonal January warm spell threatened to delay the opening of a key competition in the race for the Womens' World Cup in Alpine skiing scheduled today. On the slopes, work crews slogged back and forth under sunny skies storing tons of real and artificial snow in 25-foot high i n s u l a t e d aluminum drums. The thermometer showed a temperature of 39.2 degrees.

"This is exciting equipment," Andretti said at a news conference. "I'm looking forward to this season more than any I've ever raced." McNamara, a native of Galcsburg, 111., was reared by his grandparents at Bloomington, Ind., only 55 miles from the Indianapolis Motor Speedway where the richest USAC race is run on Memorial Day each year. McNamara has been in the race car building business only two years but his cars have run successfully in formula Vee, formula Ford, formula III and formula II divisions. McNamara's crew, includes Joseph H. Karasek, formerly of Lola, and Peter Arundell, formerly of Lotus. One of the McNaniaras will be built especially for the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, where Andretti set a 500-mile record speed of 156.867 miles per hour last year and won $205,727. Another car will be designed especially for the elaborate new Ontario, Calif., racing plant where a 500-mile race will be run Sept. 6. McNamara said the car would be planned to buck the possible high temperatures and ; high wind 'conditions at Ontario during that season. iiijjmiiiimiiimiimiiiiiiillliimillliliimmimijimiilllNlimiNllllilll uiiNMlllllllllllllllliiliiiiMiliiilliililllliillimmiilimilllMmNliilliiniiNiimiillllimillimmiiilimiiiiiimiiiiiimimiiiiiiiii iiiMiiiiiMjiiiiiiiiiiiiiimiiiiiiiilliiiimii CASPER MISSES CUT Harney Halfway Leader-Again PHOENIX Iff) - Paul Harney, a grey-haired veteran who hasn't won since 1965, fired a two-under-par 69 Friday and moved into the second round lead in the $100,000 Phoenix Open Golf tournament.

The Chicago Bears star, who carried home the trophy in the 1967 and 1068 Pro Bowls, returns to the Wesl lineup Sunday after missing last year's game because of knee surgery. Sayers led the NFL in rushing this season with 3,032 yards. Kickoff at the Coliseum is 1:05. "The award is called the George Halas Trophy and we like to keep it in the family," he laughed. In three Pro Bowls, Sayers has had runs of 74, 52, 51, 48 and 42 yards and had a 55-yard pass play called back. In 1967 he set a Pro Bowl record by averaging 10 yards per carry, netting 110 yards on 11 rushes. Coach Norm Van Brocklin announced Friday that Chicago middle linebacker Dick Butkus'and quarterback Roman Gabriel of Die Rams were selected co-captains for the West.

Larry Hinson and Dale Douglass, each with a 66, were tied at 137. Billy Casper took a second consecutive 72 for 144 and missed the cut for the final two rounds. This was only the second time since 1963 that Casper has missed the cut in a PGA tournament. · Harney, a club pro from Button, Mass., who now plays only about 10 tournaments a year, scored his last tour victory in the Los Angeles Open six years ago. "The wind was against us on the par-3 holes and that made them tougher," he said. "This is a really fine golf course. You sure have to drive it straight here." He had only three birdies and a single bogey, all on the front side, as he moved past the faltering Greene. He birdied the first and the seventh, both par fives, from four feet, bogeyed the fifth when he drove into the trees, but got the stroke back with an eight-foot birdie putt on the next hole. Dick Mayer, a 46-year- old veteran who won the 1957 U.S. Open, fell far off the pace after an opening 66. He had a 74 for 140. Ziegler, with his 65 had the lowest round of the day. He played the back nine first and took a one- under-par 34 with two birdies and one bogey on his card. He had a four-under-par 31 on the front nine with five birdies. Littler was in trouble three times on his round when he hit tee shots into the trees. · "The secret of this golf course," he said, "is to go down the fairway. This is a bout as narrow a golf course as I've seen. It's just mandatory that you drive straight." faul Harmy »J-49--134.
