Player takes five stroke British lead LYTHAM ST. ANNE's, England (AP) — Gary Player, sitting pretty on a five-stroke lead in his bid for a third British Open goU title, prayed today for a big wind. "Let it blow," said the little South African as a scaled-down field of 82 went into the third round on the 6,822-yard Royal Lytham and St. Anne's Links. "I enjoy it when it blows," he said confidently. "Wind is part of the British Open. "It is an examination, and it took me a long time to pass the examination. Eighty per cent of the fellows out there have not passed the test." It was no idle boasting, either. Player tamed the wind, the sandy wastes and the bushes that trap inaccurate shotma- kers to shoot a sparkling 68 Thursday for a two-round total of 137, five under par. Another South African, Bobby Cole, shared second place with Britain's Peter Oosterhuis, both at par 142. It has been years since anybody had such a big lead at the halfway point in this 114-year- old classic. America's leading challengers were strung out behind. Danny Edwards, a rookie pro from Edmund, Okla., was in fourth place at 143. Defending champion jtom Weiskopf had a 14-J, along with Liang Huan Lu of Taiwan. Jack Nicklaus, who started out as the tourney favorite, was at 146. But given the uncertainties of golf, and above all the vagaries of this treacherous, wind- lashed course, it is too soon to write off the chances of the American trio. Nicklaus and Weiskopf both insisted they stiU had hopes of landing the title. "Strokes change rapidly on a course like this and in 'condi- tions like these," said Nicklaus. Weiskopf, with seven strokes to make up, said, "Even with one round to play, you can win irom that position. Anything could happen yet." ST.

Dean, 64, was hospitalized Thursday after arriving here to participate in a golf tournament. BLOOMINGTON, Minn. (AP) — "The big thing is clutch hitting," said Minnesota Manager Frank Quilici Thursday night. "I think this club is coming of age." Quilici's Twins stormed back from a deficit for a second straight night and posted a 5-2 victory over Cleveland for Minnesota's fifth consecutive victory. "Carew's been steady all year, but now some of the other players are picking up," said Quilici. Outfielder I,arry Hisle, rejected by Philadelphia three years ago, continued driving in Minnesota's crucial runs. "When Hisle's going good, he's as good a number three hitter as you can find," said Quilici. "He's got the extra base power you need for that spot." Hisle, who has driven in seven runs in the Twins' last two Fergus Legion defeated 4 - 1 Morris batters pounded out six hits including a two-run homer en route to defeating Fergus Falls American Legion nine 4-1 Thursday evening on the junior high school diamond. Neil Brendmoen was the losing pitcher. In the loss he fanned 11 Tiger batters. Mike Johnson stopped Fergus on four hits and got great fielding support from his errorless teammates. He fanned 15 Fergus batters. Morris took a 2-0 lead in the top of the second frame on a two-run homer. Fergus came back in its half of the frame with a single run when Mitch Becker was hit by a pitch and then scored from first on a double by Elaine Ecker. Both teams went scoreless until the top of the eighth when Morris tallied its final two runs. Fergus' Ecker was the leading hitter with 2 for 3 including the club's only RBI.

(AP) - Bill Goldsworthy, the Minnesota North Stars' leading scorer last season, signed a multi-year contract Thursday with the National Hockey League Club that probably makes him the state's highest paid athlete ever. Terms of the arrangement weren't revealed. However, there was speculation Goldsworthy's new salary schedule will earn him somewhere between $150,000 and $175,000 a season. The length of the agreement was at least four years, not including the option year contained in all NHL pacts. Goldsworthy had been wooed by several World Hockey Association teams, including the Chicago Cougars and Vancouver Blazers." games, also contributed a defensive gem which prevented a Cleveland run in the fourth in- CLEVELAND MINNESOTA ab r h bi ab r h bi L0*frvitnif 0 7 1 CarewTb 4221 BfOha:nr ?o 000 Braunlf 4121 EHiilb 1 1 0 Misled 4023 SpikMrf 0 1 I Kiilefcrewdh 4 0 0 0 GambleCh 000 Darwinrl 3010 Ht^drickcf 000 SoderMmJb 2000 BBdlio 1 I 0 KusicklQ 7000 Ovrxanc 0 1 0 HolT Ib MOO CrKbypn 000 Brgmanc 4010 OjHyss 7020 Gomejss 2010 Pflefwp 0000 Olivaph 0000 8«n*p 0000 Terrell 14 MOO H-igefVJrlp 0000 D«ckerp 0000 Ej'Aeyp 0000 TctAl 33 7 8 2 Tolai 31 5 9 5 Cleveland 000 110 CW- 2 Mnneuia COO 001 40<- 5 DP i -C<eve'3«vJ 1, M ruie&ota 1.

Hisle fired a one-hop strike to catcher Glenn Borgmann from center field to cut down Charlie Spikes, who attempted to score from third base on a George Hendrick fly ball. "I think I prefer hitting third," said Hisle. "It gives a player a chance to use more talents there and drive runs in." While Hisle's heroics have been center stage in Minnesota's recent surge, the steady bats of Steve Braun and Rod Carew have also been important. The two left-handed batters spoiled a percentages move by Cleveland Manager Ken Aspromonte in the seventh inning Journal SPORTS Fergus Falls (Mn.) Journal Fri., July 12,1974 with successive singles off Indian southpaw reliever Tom Hilgendorf. "If our left hander was on we'd have been out of the inning," said Aspromonte. "He (Hilgendorf) had two strikes on Carew and let him off with a base hit. He should have blown him out of the box." Right hander Joe Decker scattered eight Cleveland hits to post his ninth victory of the season for Minnesota. Decker, who won 10 games in his best major league season last year, was superb the final four innings. He allowed one walk and one hit in that span. The loss, which was Cleveland's third straight, left the Indians in third place behind Baltimore and Boston in the American league East.

(Journal photo by Bruce Bakke) Warring NFL players meet with owners Toss League Ravens 18, Jays 17 Wrens 15, Robins 13 Dwarf League Pioneers 10, Bears 0 Ponies 9, Pirates 0 Sox 8, Yankees 4 Major League Coots 3, Mallards 2 Sparrows 22, Eagles 7 WASHINGTON 7 (AH) - The National Football League club owners and players were scheduled to meet again today in an effort to being contract negotiations anew and end the 12-day strike that has already caused the cancellation of the College All-Star game. "Anytime you get them to the table, it's a hopeful sign," said Ed Garvey, executive director of the players union. "We hope we can convince them it's time to start bargaining." "We feel, as the federal mediator does, that the proper place for the bargaining parties is at the bargaining table," said John Thompson, executive director of the NKL Management Council."We welcome the chance to settle our differences in that forum." The two warring parties met in the Labor Department offices of federal mediator James Scearce in attempt to get bargaining talks started again. The talks broke off June 26 after it became apparent that there would be no immediate agreement on the 63 demands made by the players March 16. Scearce said then that the meetings were recessed because "we have reached the point now where we cannot be constructive. The players' demands include nine basic so-called freedom issues although they also want the elimination of curfews in training camp and liberalized dress code. Among the key freedom de- Hunt accuses NFLPA of premeditated strike plan DALLAS (AP) — Lamar Hunt, owner of the Kansas City Chiefs, accused the National Football league Players Association today of a premeditated strike to demolish the pre-season but predicted there would be a regular NFL season because of desertions in the veteran ranks. "My own opinion is they (the NFLPA) took their position far in advance to wreck pre-season with four things in mind," the founding father of the old American Football League told The Associated Press. Hunt said "First of all, the pre-season training camps and two-a-day workouts are extremely demanding...very hard physically. Now, a veteran WFL Sharks topple New York Stars 14-7 JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — "I don't think Notre Dame has a greater spirit than the Jacksonville Sharks," linebacker Rich Thomann shouted after playing a key role in the 14-7 victory over the New York Stars as the World Football League made its nationwide television debut. Sharks' owner Fran Monaco was just as spirited in referring to the Thursday night crowd of 59,112. "That's tops in the league and that's where we want to be—on top," he said. Thomann, a rookie from Notre Dame, and 10-year pro defensive end Ike Las.siter combined on a blocked punt with 2 1 * minutes left to play. I^assiter blocked the kick off Robbie Reynolds' toe at the 30 and Thomann ran it within seven yards of the goal- Running back Tommy Durrance and offensive guard O.Z. White took it in from there. Durrance slanted for six yards on the first play; then smashed into the line from the one. The ball squirted free and White claimed it in the end zone for the touchdown with 2:02 on the clock. Both Jacksonville and New York played strong defense but showed only flashes of quality on offense. "This is my pattern," said Sharks' Coach Bud Asher, jumping from high school to a semipro job with WFL. "You win with defense and a good kicking game. We bore this out on Alvin Wyatt's punt return and I^ssiter's block of their punt." Wyatt broke a scoreless deadlock in the second quarter when he burst down the right sideline 87 yards with a punt return. New York Coach Babe Parilli said his team let down on the punt return, believing the kick was going out of bounds, "but otherwise they gave 100 per cent. New York has nothing to be ashamed about." Stars' quarterback Tom Sherman led a well-paced 77- yard march to New York's touchdown in the second quarter right after Wyatt's score. wouldn't be against nipping that part of the camp. "Secondly, that (camp) is the one time of year that jobs are vulnerable. If there is no preseason, they (the veterans) are almost assured of getting their jobs back because a rookie can't beat them out. Third, there's not a lot of compensation in contrast to regular season salaries...they're not taking a great financial risk. And No. 4, 1 think the union leadership calculated this is the one thing that would help the World Football League get off the ground." Hunt, who has been in Europe for the World Cup and therefore not previously interviewed on the strike subject, said "I think there will be a season...I don't know specifically who will play in it. I would think that in the long run more players i veterans 1 would want to play than don't want to is their means of earning a livelihood." He said the way he has it figured the union's 93 demands come to over $100 million a year. "Why, the total revenue of the league is $162 million," Hunt said. "They are totally out of touch with reality to make requests like that. I hate to use the word "requests" because they've made it 'demands.' The demands are certainly not realistic within the structure of football as a would be very harmful to the sport." Hunt said the union calculated the average NFL team made a $2.3 million profit. He said an audit by the ownership came up with an average of $900,000 for each of the 26 teams. "It doesn't make any difference which figure you use because there is no way to resolve something in faith when you talk about SI00 million when there is no possible way to pay it," Hunt said. Hunt predicted more and more veterans would return to camp as the season nears. mands are elimination of the option and reserve clauses, the right of veterans to veto trades and abol i shment of th e so called Rozelle rule which allows the commissioner to decide compensation when a player moves to another team after his option year. The players went on strike July 1 and, two days later, set up picket lines at the training camp of San Diego, followed by Dallas, Miami, Philadelphia, Green Bay and the New York Jets and Giants. Picket lines were to go up today at the camps of Buffalo and Oakland, as those teams were to report. The College All-Stars reported to Evanston, 111., to prepare for their July 26 game against the Miami Dolphins but, after meeting with union representatives, voted not to play unless a contract was signed. The sponsors of the game cancelled the contest Wednesday. Joe Robbie, owner of the Dolphins and a member of the NFL Management Council, told a news conference Thursday that he did see the two parties agreeing on much at the meeting with the mediator. "I don't expect anything to happen," he said. "The impasse has deepened. We can't negotiate with a gun at our heads." SPORT SHORTS Two offspring of Specialmente were recent Aqueduct winners.
