DOSSIDI6 TON/OP TOl nUQllGS AKRON, Ohio (AP) - "One thing was on my mind," Jim Colbert said. "I wanted it all. "I didn't care if I was second or 95th. I wanted it all and I was willing to take some chances to get it." The chipper, gutsy little guy got it all—the title and a $34,000 first place check—on the second hole of a four-man sudden- death playoff in the $170,000 American Golf Classic. He got it with a routine par five after Ray Floyd's bold bid for a birdie turned into a bogey instead. "I was playing for birdie," Floyd said of the wind-blown third shot that caught the bank of a pond guarding the green and set up the bogey that let Colbert get away with the fourth title of his career Sunday. "I'm excited," Colbert said. "I'm real excited. I've won before, but this is my first on national television. It's my first on a really great golf course. It's just great. Everything is great." Colbert, 33, had to make a scrambling par on the last hole of regulation play, chipping over a bunker to within about 18 inches of the hole, to tie Floyd, a bitterly disappointed Forrest Fezler and veteran Gay Brewer for the top spot at 281. That's one-over-par on the * ** AKRON, Ohio (AP) - Top final scores and money-winnings Sunday in the $170,000 American Golf Classic on the 7,180- yard, par-70 Firestone Country Club course (x-indicates won sudden-death playoff): x-Jim Colbert unyielding, 7,180-yard Firestone Country Club course, a monster of a layout turned even longer and tougher by gusty, blustery winds, chill temperatures and rough still wet and heavy from heavy rains. It was the first time since the Colonial Invitational of 1971 that a regular tour event—not including the U.S. Open—had been won at plus-par figures. And the four-man playoff was the largest since the Kemper Open of 1971. Fezler and Brewer dropped out with bogeys on the first extra hole, Brewer three-putting and Fezler failing from a bunker. The victory lifted Colbert's season's earnings to $73,000. Each of the playoff losers received $13,147. Colbert and Floyd matched par 70 in the last round, Brewer had a 71 and Fezler, who missed birdie putts on the last three holes that would have se- 265 state teams in Legion play cured his first pro victory, a 73. Bert Yancey, Jim Jamieson, Dwight Nevil and J.C. Snead missed the playoff by a single stroke at 282 in the massive scramble in which seven players led or shared the lead at one time during the final round and another half-dozen were within one shot. Arnold Palmer matched the day's best round, a 69, and had 285. U.S. Open champ Hale Irwin had 73-290.

The two heavyweights were at the same party Saturday night, the New York Boxing Writers' Association dinner, and they were anything but congenial guests. Foreman, the heavyweight champion, was being honored as the association's fighter of the year, and Ali, who will challenge him for the title in Zaire Sept. 25, was the featured speaker. Ali needled Foreman, sitting just two seats away. "Hittin* hard don't mean nothing if you don't find nothing to hit," chided Ali. "Are you serious, George, fighting me? George Foreman do not hit hard ...." The needling continued. Foreman finally approached the podium and said: "I don't know about anybody else, but I'm tired of all of this and I want to go home." He then strode to his seat, picked up his awards and started to leave. Ali interceded. Foreman then grabbed the hem of Ali's blue suit coat and ripped it up the back. The two were eyeball-to-eyeball and snortin' mad. They were pulled apart, but not before Foreman's shirt was ripped from beneath his coat. Foreman left in a huff amid insults and drinking glasses hurled by Ah'. As Foreman's elevator descended to the hotel lobby from the dining room above, the heavyweight champion was overheard telling promoter Don King of Video Techniques: "You'd better get me a body guard any time I'm going near him again." The incident was not unlike a scuffle between Ali and Joe Frazier on a television talk show just two days before their fight last January. Striker enters fourth day on tower CALGARY, Alta. (AP) — A 27-year-old employe of the Firestone Tire and Rubber Co. is going into his fourth day on top of a 200-foot water tower above the company's Calgary plant to call attention to the wage demand of the plant's 240 employes. Dave Schiedel climbed the tower Friday morning, taking food, water, a sleeping bag and other gear. He told newsmen Sunday via walkie-talkie that he was in good spirits although sunburned. He said he would come down when the company agrees to cost-of-living wage increases for the workers. titrust regulations and "is clothed with the appearance of impropriety." "Except for the fact that the purchase negotiations ultimately fell through for financial reasons wholly unrelated to antitrust considerations, this is a classic case of governmental decision- making for friends," the report said. The staff report, as yet unapproved by the full committee, was prepared after nearly a year of investigation into the payments made in 1970 to C.G. "Bebe" Rebozo, a Florida banker and long-time friend of the President's. Written under the direction of assistant chief counsel Terry Lenzner, the report is the first section of a comprehensive report on the controversial Hughes-Rebozo money. It explores the theory that a "quid pro quo" link did exist between those payments and efforts by Hughes to expand his hotel and gambling holdings in Las Vegas. According to the report, Hughes and Robert P. Maheu, then his chief Nevada lieutenant, chose Richard Banner, a Hughes employe and former Miami, Fla., city manager, to act as political liasion with the government. Banner was a friend of both Nixon and Rebozo and, the report notes, became the courier who delivered the $100,000 to Rebozo in cash. Danner told the committee that after a series of secret meetings from which antitrust attorneys were excluded, Mitchell on March 19, 1970, approved the Dunes purchase. The report- said that after Danner returned from one such meeting, "Maheu set in motion one of the two $50,000 contributions to Rebozo." It quoted Maheu as saying there were "certain political obligations that had to be met" as the result of the Danner trip and that a Hughes lawyer had been ordered to pay out the money. "The essential point here is that Maheu remembered a clear connection between the Danner-Mitchel! meetings and the contribution to Rebozo,'' the committee report said. "I remember telling Danner that we had authority from Hughes to make a commitment to help the administration in some of the congressional races they'd be interested in," Maheu testified. "But I don't know to this day if he took the matter up with Mitchell or someone else," he said. Mitchell, Nixon's presidential campaign manager in 1968 and for part of 1972, has denied ever discussing campaign contributions. Danner also has said he only discussed the antitrust matter with Mitchell. Rebozo has said the $100,000 in $100 bills was intended as a campaign contribution but instead was kept untouched in a safety deposit box for three years and then returned to a Hughes representative. He has said he took no part in the Dunes discussions. In such investigations, "rarely do the facts and explanations point clearly to a conclusion showing improper conduct," the staff report said. "The facts of this ease however, pointedly suggest impropriety of a significant degree and raise serious questions about campaign contributions and Justice Department practices," it said. The Watergate committee is meeting every day this week to complete and issue its final report by Friday. Drowning reported ATWATER, Minn. (AP) - A 45-year-old Willmar, Minn., drowned Saturday night when his boat capsized on Bass Lake. Authorities said the body of Harland Evenson was recovered about 9:30 p.m. Evenson and a companion, Keith Sorenson of Willmar, were fishing when the boat overturned, said authorities.
