Dye as new director of athletics at Syracuse University, made yesterday by vice-chancellor Dr. Michael 0. Sawyer, confirmed a report in me Fost-Mandarfl more than a week ago. Dye, who has been dean of admissions, succeeds James H. Decker, who retired June 1 after more than 35 years in the athletic department, the last nine as director of athletics. Sawyers also announced that Ron Oyer, who has been serving as acting athletic director, has been promoted to the newly-created position of associate director of athletics. Both are former Syracuse University football players. Dye, 54, earned three letters in football and, after graduation in 1942, and following a year in the army, became a member of the Washington Redskins. And end, the position he played at Syracuse, Dye was among the receivers of for the 'Skins' fabulous passer, Sammy Baugh. Less played with Washington in 1944 and 1945. After a three-year stint as head football coach at Clarkson College, he became head freshman coach at Syracuse under Ben Schwartzwalder and held that position from 1949 until 1959. One of his prime concerns now will be helping to select a successor to Schwartzwalder. Less was appointed assistant director of admissions at Syracuse, in 1959, and a year later was named director. He became dean in 1969. The new. Ad is married for the former Janice Ferguson and they have three children.

UPI) —The French Matra factory took a giant step Fri-day toward clinching the world manufacturers' championship by grabbing the pole position and the No. 2 slot for Saturday's sixhour endurance race at the Watkins Glen Grand Prix course. Francois Cevert tooled his blue Matra around the 3.4 mile road circuit Wednesday in one minute, 42.27 seconds for the best qualifying time, averaging 118.87 mph. The course record of 120.99 mph was set by Jacky Stewart of Scotland in qualifying for the 1972 United States Grad Prix. Another Matra team member, Geerard Larrouse of France, sped around the circuit in 1:43.91 for an average speed of 117 flat. Larrousse and countryman Henri Pesca-rolo have accounted for Mat-ra's four victories in the first nine races of the series this year. Jean-Pierre Beitoise, another Frenchman, is Cav-ert's copilot. A victory Saturday is worth 20 points and second is 15. A Matra triumph would lock up the title for the French firm and leave Ferrari, the pride of Italy, the runnerup. The sports car prototype race kicks off a' weekend doubleheader, with the nightcap on Sunday featuring the third event in the Can-Am series. George FoIImer and Charlie Kemp have each won a race in a R.C. Cola Porsche and lead the standings with 20 points each. Roger Do-nohue is third with 19 points in a Roger Penske Porsche.

Danforth, who has led his last three teams into post-season tournament play and who, in five years shows an 86-46 record, was on a television terday morning about Dye, but when he returned in the afternoon he visited Les and congratulated him. "J think Les will do a very fine job," said Roy. "He has been associated with athletics for so many years, and knows the situation and personnel so well that he seems to be an outstanding choice for the position." ■ I I HI New York Yankees' Thurman Munson slides home with a run in the first inning of last night's first game against the Chicago White Sox at Yankee Double Start Disastrous NEW YORK (AP) - The New York Yankees routed Wilbur Wood and the Chicago White Sox twice Friday night, scoring eight runs in the first inning of the opener en route to a 12-2 romp and then riding Roy White's fifth-inning grand slam to a 7-0 victory in the second game of the twi-nighi doubleheader. The nightcap was halted by rain with the Yankees ;it bat in the sixth inning. Wood, who faced only six batters in the first game, was starting both ends of a doubleheader for the first time this year. However, on May 28 he went five innings in completing a suspended game against Cleveland and then hurled a four-hit shutout in the regular game. Wood, who had beaten the Yankees eight straight times, all complete games, struck out leadoff man Horace Clarke in the first inning of the opener, but Ed Herrmann's passed ball allowed him to reach first. After Clark stole second and Many Alou walked, White delivered a two-run double. Bobby Murcer added an RBI single, Thurman Munson doubled and Graig Nettles' two-run single chased Wood. Eddie Fisher gave up a single to Felipe Alou and a two-run double to Celerino Sanchez before getting the first out. Matty Alou drove in the final run of the Yankees' biggest (Major League ^\ Standings J AMERICAN LEAGUE East W. L. Pet. New York 56 43 .566 Baltimore ........ 49 41 .544.

The Yanks loaded the bases Here With Richmond NordhagenBack In Chiefs1 Park When the Richmond Braves come to town to open a three-night series at MacArthur Stadium tonight, the Syracuse Chiefs may be pardoned for gazing enviously at the Richmond outfield corps. One of the R-Braves' picketmen is Wayne Nordhagen, who started the season in Syracuse uniform, and the Chiefs would be delighted to have him now. The Syracuse outfield has been decimated, at least temporarily, by illness and accident. Otto Velez suffered a sprained ankle in Thursday night's sweep over Toledo., and he'll be out of action a couple of days, at least. Mike Fiore, who missed the entire last road trip because of a virus, ran a high temperature which has now subsided, but Mike, who can play first base and the outfield, probably won't be ready to play tonight, either. General manager Tex Sim-one said last night that there are no plans now to bring up anyone from the Yankees' West Haven farm, because Probable Pitchers (Wrltfrt 5-t), *:3fl p.m Philadelphia f Nelson 2-2). 8:03 D.m.

"it wouldn't be fair to a player to bring him up for just a couple of days, then send him right back." However, if the outfield shortage continues, somebody probably will be called up, possibly Ed Pach-eco, veteran utiity player, who has played here in each of the last two seasons. It will be lefty Dave Cheadle (5-7) going against Richmond at 7:30 tonight, with the probability that catcher Rick Dempsey will play left field, though Mike Ferraro might be used there instead. Though Richmond has the worst record in the International League, it leads the Chiefs in this season's games, six games to five, and the Braves have been winning more rgularly under a new manager, Clint Courtney. Tonight is a Fays Drug Hitting Contest night, with a pre-game event in which young-sters bat against former Chiefs' pitcher Hal Reniff, with bicycles as prizes. In the 6 p.m. Sunday game, it will be "ball day," with free souvenir baseballs for children under 15, and in the 7:30 p.m. Monday game it will be Stockholders' night, with a fried chicken dinner available before the game.

(UP!) ~ Sharon Kay Miller, so disgusted with Jane Blalock's alleged cheating she almost quit golf last winter, surged into a fourstroke lead Friday midway through the U.S. women's open championship. Miss Miller, winless in eight years and 184 previous tournaments since joining the LPGA tour, shot a three-un-der-par 69 and, at two under 142, was the only player in the field to complete 36 holes under par. Ann Quast Welts Sander, a t h r e e-time U.S. Women's Amateur champion and second-year California pros Ka-thy.Martin and Shelley Hamlin were tied for second at 146. Mrs. Sander had a 72, Miss Martin a 73 and Miss Hamlin, one of the last players on the course, birdied three of the last six holes for a 70 Friday. Miss Austin Out ROCHESTER - Debbie Austin carded a 79 Friday to go with her 77 Thursday for a 156 total that did not qualify U.S. \ ment. The Oneida plenty of sthe< i in the Cynthia Hill, a Colorado amateur whose 68 led the first round, ballooned to a 79 * and was five shots off the pace at 147. Miss Miller, who has finished as high ^s second place only three times in her career, was a member of the LPGA executive board which investigated and then suspended Miss Blalock for allegedly moving her ball on the greens- cheating, in other words— in May, 1972. She said she believed the other players on the tour signed Jane's official score-cards only "out of kindness" and then disclosed she was on the verge of retiring last win ter. "One of the reaons was the hassle we had all year over the Blalock thing," Miss Miller said. "It just didn't make sense to me to come out here and beat my brains out when somebody comes out and does what she does." Until last month, Miss Blalock remained on the LPGA tour only by obtaining a court order withholding the suspension. Then a federal judge ruled last month the suspension was illegal. Miss Blalock, who barely survived the 36-hole cut here with a 76 Friday and a 154 total, 12 strokes behind the leader, said she was dis-trubed but not mad about Miss Miller's renewed charges. Miss Miller also said, "There's been a question this week about Miss Blalock's conduct. P.J. Boatright, executive director of the USGA, confirmed someone had reported Miss Blalock cheating during the tournament but, upon checking, he said he coulld not verify it." Jane Bastanchury Booth, an amateur, and pro Mary Mills joined Miss Hill at 147 with rounds of 74 and 73, respectively. Sandra Palmer, who had a 72 Friday, Pam Hig-gins, and amateurs Beth Barry and Marlene Streit, a former U.S. Amateur champion, were at 148.
