When Clay checked into an inn across the Androscoggin River in Lewiston's sister city of Auburn Sunday, the local constabulary announced two of its members would remain within shouting distance of the strong- lunged champion. About 10 Maine state troopers also planned to alternate as his protectors until fight time at 10:30 p.m. EDT at the Central Maine Youth Center, a huge ice hockey rink commonly known as St. Dom's Arena. Clay claimed the police protection was unnecessary.

(UPD- Jack Nicklaus picked up S9,000 to add to his massive winnings Sunday when he came from behind to win the S60,000 Memphis Open golf tournament in the first hole of a sudden death playoff with Mississippian Johnny Pott. Nicklaus, playing as much off the fairways as on during the first three rounds, switched to an intent, gambling style of play during the final round to knock five strokes off par and end up in a tie with Pott at 271—nine-under par.

"I'm going to need all of it for what I've got planned for Liston Tuesday night. The fan fare is over. I'm not using my energy as I usually do for promoting." With this, the Louisville Lip then reverted to character and went on a long monologue, during which he claimed the 6Vi to 5 odds favoring Liston for the AAU MEET — Competitors splash towards the finish hne during the AAU swimming meet sponsored by the Redlands Boosters for Swimming and the Redlands Junior Chamber of Commerce.

She blew and then regained the lead from Katby Whitworth after starting the day with a three - stroke margin. Despite a terrific emotional letdown on the second hole of Sunday's final round, Miss Wright staggered to a four- par 38-37—^75 and nosed out Miss Whitworth with a dramatic finishing hole flurry. It gave her a one-under parj 283 and a $2,100 pay check. ner parred the extra hole with ease after young Pott got into a muddy hazard. Both had gone into the final round trailing Julius Boros, Pott by two strokes and Nicklaus by five. Boros blew to a 72 after leading the second and third rounds and finished in a four- way tie for third with first round leader Bob McAllister, Lou Graham and Bert Yancey. Austrahan Bruce Cramplon and Bob Verwey of South Africa finished at 274 in a tie for fourth. At 275 was Jack McGowan. The lone amateur to make the cut. Deane Beman, twice a National Amateur championship winner, finished at 277 with pro Randy Glover. Nicklaus won the tournament when Pott hooked a four wood into a muddy ditch, sent his second shot into a cluster of branches, chipped to the green and two-putted for a bogey five. Nicklaus played a safe one iron shot down the middle and was home in par four. Second place was wwlh $5,000 to Pott. Chicopee. Mass., training camp. "I'm not scared about nothing ... no man ... no guns ... no rifles." Clay made the trip from; Massachusetts in his own bus. With him were his wife, Sonji. and 15 other members of his entourage. The champion appeared unusually quiet and somber when he stepped off the bus and also later when he held a press conference at the inn. Asked if he felt depressed, Clay barked: line. "The people are being fooled by the odds," he said. "I should be favored by at least 7 to 1. I'm in the best shape of my career. I weight 209 pounds now. I'm solid, man." While all this was going on, Liston was winding up his training grind with mere exer cising at nearby Poland Spring. Both men put in their final sparring sessions Saturday and have nothing to do now but wait for the bell to ring Tues day night.

Twenty-seven of the 33 starters in the $500,000 plus chase next Monday have rear-engine machines, 17 of them powered by Ford. The four-cylinder Offenhauser, the ancient standby, wiU furnish the power in 14 other entries and the two famed Novis have eight-cylinder supercharged engines. Only four conventional road sters of the type that has won every "500" since the early 1950s will be in the lineup. Last year only 12 rear-engine cars were in the race, seven!

Eleven cars were qualified Saturday and six more Sunday, but four were eliminated by faster machines and Ward, in the biggest surprise of the trials, "bumped" himself when he failed on the third try to gain a starling berth.

(UPI) — Fred Lorenzen cuts a mean figure on a dance floor and on a stock car race track. But the handsome 30-year-oH bachelor from Elmhurst, III., was the first to admit he felt "more confident" on the track Sunday than he usually does on a dance floor. He should have. He breezed to an easy victory in tlie SllO,- 710 World 600 race over the Charlotte Motor Speedway, the longest and richest stock car event anywhere. "My car was handling better than it ever had this year," said Lorenzen, who won the race in 1963 in the record time of 132.418 miles per hour. Eleven caution flags slowed his winning time Sunday to 121.772 mph. Earl Blamer of Floyd Knobs, Ind.. a 1964 Mercury pilot, fm- ished 10 seconds behind Lorenzen.

BURT FOR MORE HOLLYWOD (UPI) — Burt Lancaster has extended his long-term contract with United Artists for four more films. Clay picked for different reason By MILTON RICHMAN !remember at the time was LEWISTON, Maine (UPI) —JMax Baer in his heavyweight Cassius Clay has a slight im-| title fight with Jim Braddock pediment of speech—he stops j back m 1935. I recalled how to take a deep breath very once in a while. That's the only possible time anyone else can get a word in edgewise and since those opportunities come few and far between, here goes: I think Clay will beat Sonny Liston again Tuesday night, by a TKO in the 10th round. Clay also was my choice in their first go-round at Miami Beach 15 months ago. My rea son for picking him then was different than it is now. Before that first fight, everyone and his sister said Listen was a sure thing. People who Baer was a prohibitive 8-1 favorite, the same as Liston. I also seemed to remember Braddock won. So I picked Clay. There are those who still think Liston lost because he threw his shoulder out. Not me. From what I saw, Clay beat him, shoulder or no shoulder, and I'm pretty sure Liston hasn't got any better since. Clay, on the other hand, has become more formidable since their first fight. He's heavier, taller and more seasoned. He also has matured some. Not only can you see it, but he says so, too, in those relatively rare moments when knew no more about prize fighting than I know about the, _ basic concepts of the Watusi he grows serious and cuts out were going around saying Clay all that spinach about "I am had absolutely no chance. "•" " The last "sure thing" I could the greatest. For one thing, he doesn't use that expression so much anymore. For another, he realizes that without tlie title, people wouldn't even bother listening to him anymore. My whole life has changed since I got the title," he confesses. "I think different now." There is the feeling among some, although it never has been proven, that Liston is strong enough to take out Clay with one punch. Could be, but first he has to catch him. And if the two of them fight from now until all taxes are abolished, Liston will never see day he can keep up with Clay in the sheer matter of getting around. Cassius flits around like a ballet dancer in the ring; Liston plods along, looking exactly like what Clay calls him—-A Big Bear. One of the more popular mis conceptions abroad is that Lis ton never really connected in their first fight, so there is no Terrier netmen meet Newport in C!F playoff Redlands High CBL champion Terriers travel to meet Newport Harbor high tomorrow in the second round of the CIF large school tennis playoffs. Coach Pual Womack's Ter riers smashed visiting West Covina in the opening round of CIF play on Friday. Newport turned back Downey high on Friday. A Redlands wm would move them into the quarter fmals slated to be played on Friday, possibly on the Terrier courts. Dodgers are back in town today, still in first place, but casting anxious glances at the rest of the National League which seems on the move en masse. The world champion St. Loui.s Cardinals, who have ripped off six straight wins and 10 m 11 games to close within 2V2 games of the top, will open a rugged home stand for the Los Angeles team tonight. Claude Osteon (3-3) will face the Cardinals' Tracy Stallard (2-1). After the Cardinals, the Dodgers must face the Milwau kee Braves and Cincinnati Reds in successive three-game series. The Reds remained two games back Sunday, as they lost, but the Dodgers fell, too. Howie Reed walked George AUman with the bases loaded to force in Ernie Banks and give the Chicago Cubs a 3-2, 16- inning win in the longest major league game of the season. Banks' double and two intentional passes preceded the game-ending walk. The Cubs thus took two of three from Los Angeles, which has played only .500 ball in the last 10 games. Dick Ellsworth (5-3), in relief, got his second win in the series, while Reed (1-1) took the loss. Johnny Podres was breezing along with a 2-1 lead through seven innings in a quickly played game. Bob Miller relieved the southpaw, who has made a strong comeback after his arm operation, and got through the eighth inning. But in the ninth, Ron Santo, who hit his third homer of the series in the sixth innmg for the first Cub run, walked to bunt and couldn't, then hit a 0-2 pitch for a base hit. Santo took third on the hit and scored on a sacrifice fly by Doug Clemens. Then the marathon was on. Ron Perranoski and Jim Brewer pitched two-hit. shutout ball for six innings, while the Dodgers squandered one scoring opportunity after another. They scored their only two runs in the first inning off starter Bob Buhl, who went only seven innings. Maury Wills singled and stole his 22nd base, Laver in clash with Gonzales then scored on a single by Willie Davis, who came in on Ron Fairly's double. But from then on Buhl, TED .Abernathy (two innings) Lindy McDaniel (five innings) and Ellsworth (two mnings) shut the Dodgers out. They left the bases loaded in the nth inning, had runners at second and third with none out in the 13th and the bases loaded again in the 16th but couldn't score. Reed got one out in the bottom of the 16tb, but Banks doubled and Clemens was intentionally passed. After a wild pitch. Reed walked Vic Roznovsky and threw a 3-1 pilch for a hall to pinch-hitter Altman. LOS ANGELES (UPD — Rod Laver and P a n c h o Gonzales, who haven't lost a match in the eight-day pro tennis tournament here, will clash m the finals to night at the Pan Pacific Audi torium. Laver, a winner in four of the six pro tournaments this year, played his usual attacking game, Sunday to mow down Mai Anderson, 6-4, 6-3, in the semifinals. It was his fifth straiglU m the tourney. Gonzales took his fifth in a row, too, but he had to call on all of his experience to overcome a tenacious effort by Earl Buchholz. Gonzales won it, 6-4, 8-10, 6-3. The preliminaries in the tournament were played as one 10- game set, but matches in the semifmals and finals are best two of three regularly scored sets. U of W in biggest sweep SEATTLE (UPI) — University of Washington oarsmen today were savoring the school's biggest crew triumph in recent years—a sweep of the Western Sprint Regatta on Lake Washington. Husky crews won the varsity, junior varsity and frosh races and gained revenge Saturday for the drubbing California gave Washington on its home waters two weeks ago. Washington's varsity eight climaxed a perfect day for the host school when it held on for a narrow victory in the final event, crossing the finish line of the 2,000 meter course on Lake Washington in 6:34.2. It was excellent time, considering the race was rowed against a strong headwind. telUng yet whether Clay can really take a punch. That's not true, either. Clay and his trainer. Drew Brown, both confide Liston really unloosed a few bombs before he quit, one of which shook up Cassius considerably. Unlike Floyd Patterson, however, Clay didn't fall. The only thing that could cost Clay his title is carelessness. He drops his guard now and then, sometimes simply to taunt Liston, and that hot doglike, hands dowm maneuver, leaves him a perfect target for Sonny's lethal left hand. Liston has to catch him first, however. He couldn't do it in their first fight and doesn't figure to do it this time. Clay should strut out of the ring the winner and still heavyweight champion although this opinion does not necessarily reflect that of the management.

By United Press International .is they say at the Audubon Society, "watch those birds." More specifically, the Orioles of Baltimore. The Orioles, who have been winging along without the services of MVP Brooks Robinson (broken thumb) and only the part-time assistance of Boog Powell (injured wrist), hopped two spots Sunday, moving from sixth place to third as a result of their 7-3, 8-3 doubleheader sweep of Detroit. In other American League action, Washington beat New York, 7-3 in the furst game of a twinbill and then lost 3-2 in the nightcap; Boston trimmed Cleveland twice, 6-2 and 8-3; and Chicago bested Los Angeles, 8-3. Kansas City was ramed out at Minnesota. It took Chicago 16 innings to defeat the Dodgers, 3-2, St. Louis came from behind to beat the Mets 8-7 in 12 innings; Philadelphia won a 4-3, 10-inning contest from Cincinnati; San Francisco stopped Houston 5-2; and Pittsburgh slaughtered Milwaukee, 10-1, in National League games. Sunday's hero for Baltimore Ken McMuUen of Washington was the 'forgotten man', Jackie Brandt. The 31-year-old outfielder has been in and out of the lineup because of the superb play of rookies Paul Blair and Curt Blefary. However, when he has played, Brandt has given indications that he's off to his finest season in the majors. His four hits, mcluding h i s fourth homer, and five RBI's upped his batting average to .319, seventh best in the league as he showed the way for the Birds. Manager Hank Bauer got a couple of encouraging pitchmg performances from Steve Barber and Dave McNally, each of whom picked up his second win of the season. Junkman Stu Miller worked the final two frames in both contests without allowmg a hit. Hank Aguirre (4-2) and Jack Hamilton (1-1) lost for Detroit.
