Palmer, unbothered by wind, leads by two UPI Sports Writer LAS VEGAS, Nev. (UPD—The nation's best golf pros will have to catch Arnold Palmer and battle the wind today to have a chance to win top money in the 75,000 Tournament o£ Champions classic. Going into the third round of tlie 72-hole test at the Desert Inn Country Club, Palmer held a two stroke lead over a handpicked field of 23 other PGA tournament winners of the past year. And the weather forecast was for gusty breezes of up to 20 miles an hour. It was wind that bothered everybody but Palmer, Juan (Chi Chi) Rodriguez and Doug Sanders Friday — and those three experts in the art of hitting a low boomer seem to have the best chance of suc­ ceeding defending champion Jack Nicklaus as the T of C titlist. Nicklaus won this tournament the past two years in a row— but his first two rounds of 74-71 —145 this time left him 10 shots behind Palmer's 66-69—135. Unless the current Masters' champion can play the course in zero today, he doesn't stand much chance. The oddsmakers in this gambling-crazy town rate Palmer almost an even money bet to duplicate his 1962 feat of winning this tournament. For Arnie and his army, it can't come soon enough. Palmer has made 20 PGA-sponsored tournament starts since he won the Oklahoma City open a year ago and hasn't hit a single jackpot. Even though Palmer fired four birdies—two of them com­ ing in the final four holes — against a single bogey Friday, both the long-hitting Rodriguez and the colorful Sanders were better in the wind. Chi Chi racked up six birdies, three of them in a row, against one three-putt bogey miscue to post a 67 to go with his open ing round of 70 for a 137 total. Sanders, who does not use a driver in the wind but plays his tee shots off the grass with a brassie, had seven threes on his card which gave him a 68 and a two-round total of 137. Behind the three leaders, still with a chance to stage a successful stretch run, were Bruce Crampton of Australia; Bill Casper Jr., and 52-year-old Samuel Jackson Snead, all bracketed at 139, four shots back of the determined Palmer. fn/uries, illness hurt Terriers in track loss Injuries, measles and a strong; 880 — 1.

Redlands went into the meet with distance men Bud Perry and Roger Norton stricken with measles. And to top that off, hurdler Marvin Benz and sprinter Steve Peterson were sidelined with pulled muscles m their first races of the afternoon. The defeat at the hands of Poly was the first of the season in which the Terriers were beaten in points even before the relay began. Despite the two sidelined distance men, Redlands still swept the mile event. Steve Shawver won the run in 4:44.9 followed by John Mercier and Jim Barnes.

(UPI) - A new jewel rested comfortably today in the crown of Randy Matson, Texas A&M University sophomore giant. Matson tossed the shot put 69 feet 'A inches Friday to shatter his own pending world record. "Everything happened to go just right." said the 6-6, 255- pound shot put king after he broke his record of 67 feet 11 inches on his second toss in a triangular meet in Memorial Stadium. The 20-year-old Matson wore a white elastic band around his left knee to protect a strained ligament. He said his knee "bothered me a little, but not enough to offset my throwing." He said he first hurt the knee in high school. A large crowd around the shot put area broke into wild cheering from the moment the shot hit the ground on the record-breaking toss. Alston chops away at mound with pick LOS ANGELES (UPI) — Early fans at Chavez Ravine Friday night for the Dodger- San Francisco Giant game saw a strange sight: Dodger Manager Walt Alston chopping away at the pitcher's mound with a pick. Although he is a farmer in Darrtown, Ohio, during the off season, Alston had a definite baseball reason for his digging. Umpire Ken Burkhardt had come out early to measure the height of the mound, following a National League directive. He found it three inches above the maximum height of 15 inches. The ground crew cut away three inches and lowered the rubber, but they failed to restore the proper slope. So Alston—wearing his uniform- grabbed a pick and went to assist the crew in providing one. Coaches and players watched as the work progressed. Alston figured the first protest on the mound had come from ex-Dodger Ed Roebuck of the Philadelphia Phillies. Roe•I felt like it might be a SS.jbuck growled that the height it felt better than a 67, but llfouled up hi.'; sinker, his best didn't expect it to be a 69." I pitch. It didn't sink, he said. CAENIVAL By Dick Turner Dodgers win again over Giants LOS ANGELES (UPI) lief pitcher Bob MiUer pinch hitter Wally Moon shared the credit today for the Los Angeles Dodgers second straight win over the San Francisco Giants. It was Miller who took over for Sandy Koufax Friday night after the classy lefthander was forced to leave the game with a pulled thigh muscle and drew out a 6-3 victory with Moon breaking a 3-3 tie with a bases- loaded single in the seventh that scored two runs. But for the Giants it was a disappointing loss and manager Herman Franks said it again pointed up the club's lack of lefthanded pitching. The veteran Moon, however, gave credit for his clutch hit to coach Danny Ozark who passed along the word that San Francisco's relief pitcher Frank Linzy's favorite pitch was a sinker. Moon said he waited for that pitch and then stroked it to left field for a single that scored Tommy Davis and Jim Lefebvre with the runs the Dodgers needed for their victory. Like most Giants-Dodgers games, Friday night's contest was a wild and woolly affair in which the Dodgers collected 12 hits but committed five errors, their most miscues for a game this season. The Dodgers' chief concern, however, was caused by Koufax's pulled muscle but trainers Bill Euhler and Wayne An- jerson reported it was not serious and the southpaw should not miss a pitching turn. Koufax was forced to leave the gam.e in sixth when he faced three men without recording an out. Miller then took over and in the four innings he worked he blanked the Giants while allowing only two hits. "It felt good to get my first win of the season." Miller said. "The first one is always the toughest." Koufax and Giants starter Bob Hendley engaged in a pitching duel for four innings with San Francisco scoring a run in the second on rookie catcher Jack Hiatt's first major league homer and the Dodgers matching it in the third when Willie Davis doubled and Tommy Davis singled him home. Koufax pulled the muscle in the fourth inning beating out an infield hit. He ."survived the fifth but in the sixth Jesus Alou doubled. Then Willie Mays singled in the runner. Jim Hart followed with a sacrifice but was safe on Dick Tracewski's error. Miller took over for Koufax and on an attempted pick- off play he threw the ball into the outfield, permitting Mays to score from second. Bolin in the seventh gave up a single to Tommy Davis and a walk to Lefebvre. At that point, Linzy replaced Bolin and loaded the bases with a walk to Roseboro. "I saw Moon coming up as a pinch hitter," said manager Frani;s of the Giants, "but I didn't have a lefthanded relief pitcher left." Moon's single drove in the game-winning run and an insurance taUy. But in the eighth, Willie Davis added another run on his second homer of the season. The victory kept the Dodgers in fir.^it place by a half game Dver the Cmcinnati Reds who defeated the New 'i'ork Mets. Redlands Daily Facts Saturday, May 1, 1965 - 9 Yucaipa places second Hickey.

(UPI Telephoto) You can't make money vaulting Hansen's dream: 18 foot vault; dentistry first NEW YORK (NEA) — Fred Hansen has pile vaulted 17-feet, four-inches, the world's record, and now he's struggling to accept the fact that he may not have a chance to break the 18- foot barrier. All this, seven months after he sailed through the flood-lit Tokyo night to preserve America's 68-year winning tradition in the Olympic pole vault. "I feel very badly about it, but you can't make money vaulting," the 23-year-old Hansen explained. "I've got to start worrying about dental school and the future." This is not a precedent in amateur athletics. In fact, it is becoming something of a norm. Earlier this year, high jumper John Thomas announced he was retiring because he found it impossible to compete and hold a job at the same time. Before that, Oscar Moore Jr., the distance runner, lost h i s job when his boss learned he had made the U.S. Olympic team and would be absent from work nearly two months. It's not pleasant for any athlete to end a career under those circumstances. For Hansen, the decision must have been exceptionally painful because this is a kid who approaches his sport not just as a gifted competitor but as an innovator as weU. "If he told me he could jump over the moon, I'd ask him when he'd be back," said Rice track coach Emmett Brunson. Hanson's approcah to pole vaulting is pure science which he once described under the title of "Compound Pendular getting mail, not just from admirers, but from vaulters a 11 over who are interested in the way I trained. They ask me certain principles and it takes two and three pages to answer them satisfactorily. "They're j'ust lovely, Melviii, but you shouldn't have...

Hall may crack the course record of 103 M.P.H. in his Chevrolet • powered Chaparral, which has a revolutionary device for sports cars—an automatic transmission. Mazzinghi knoclcs out Mel Ferguson GENOA, Italy (UPI) Sandro Mazzinghi of Italy, the world junior middleweight champion, made quick work of Mel Ferguson Friday night, knocking out the Los Angeles native in the third round of a non-title bout. Mazzinghi, 156, landed sharp right to Ferguson's jaw erly in the third round and followed it with a left which floored the American for an eight count. Ferguson, 158, managed to get up but Mazzinghi overcame him with a body attack and knocked him out at 2:47. Fred Hansen Mechanics of VauUing." He tried explaining parts of it to reporters once and it sounded like a conversation between John Young, Gus Grissom and Gemini control. His training was revolutionary, too, consisting mainly of weight and gymnastic exercises to build strength. 'You can have all the form," Hansen said, "but when you're ap there going for 17-4, 17-6, you need strength. It's that simple. "I think my training methods should change a lot of thinking about pole vaulting. I'm still "You ask about IS feet? Right Qow I think I'm the only one capable of going that high. But I haven't trained and I had to turn down three European trips this summer because I've got to work. "Right now I'm going to school (University of Houston) and taking courses to prepare me for dental school. I hope to start that in September. I'm also working in the accounting office of an iron works company m Houston." Recently, Hansen dropped in at a Rice practice session. He picked up a pole belonging to one of his former teammates and cleared 15-6 on his first try. "What's so startling about that?" he asked. "Fifteen-six, 16-feet are pretty easy." It wasn't a boast. In Fred Hansen's world, there is only room for fact — scientific fact. Terrier nine dumps Chaffey in upset win Terrier baseballers punctured Chaffey High's high-flying bal loon yesterday with a four-run seventh inning giving Redlands an 8-6 win. The defeat knocked Chaffey out of the Citrus Belt League top berth. Gary Crowther started the rally off Chaffey's Ken Burt with a single. Gary Steddum walked, and Harry Munoz singled to load the bases. An infield single by Alan McCall scored Crowther, and Steddum and Munoz later raced home on an error. After Frank Lopez reached base on a fielder's choice and stole second, Basil Lobaugh walked and Les Cowan scored McCall on a sacrifice fly. Loren Brucker's home run was the big blow for the Tigers.
