Player and Palmer stuck it out for the entire 36 holes but failed to make the cutoff mark of 146. Player, a Masters and British Open winner, skied to a 75 for 148 while Palmer blew to a 79 and 152. U. S. Open winner Hale Irwin was more fortunate, eagling his last hole for a shaky 76, just making the cut at 146. PGA champ Lee Trevino easily made it with a 70 for 139. Graham, who had five birdies in his round for the second straight day, was pleased by his game. "I drove the ball good, hit my irons good and putted well," he said. "At the start of the year I played very poor for nearly nine weeks. It was tne worst slump in my life. I had always been consistent and I began to wonder if I'd ever play decent again." Also at 137 with Nicklaus were Hubert Green and Bruce Crampton in the battle for the $50,000 first prize, a 10-year exemption on the tour and a U.S. Open invitation as the players attempt to make this a major event along with the Masters, U.

DNR TO CLOSE F ROG SEASON The Department of Natural Resources announced today that there will be no season this year for the conmiercial taking of frogs, except those used for bait purposes within the state. This action is taken because of the extremely low level of abundance among frog populations throughout the state. Fisheries Chief, Charles Burrows, said the closed season will not affect the taking of frogs for angling purposes nor the limited numbers taken under scientific or special permits issued to educational and scientific institutions within Minnesota. The large commercial traffic in adult frogs which supplies schools and laboratories throughout the country, however, will be temporarily halted, he said. He explained that the closure was necessary to preserve the remaining brood stock as a measure to speed recovery of the frog population from a large scale die-off that occurred in 1971 and 1972.

An official announcement said K ; .rk's heart stopped suddenly and he died peacefully in a hospital where he had been Blocked punt, bad snap leads Cougars to 14-12 win By BRUCE BAKKE Journal Sports Editor CAMPBELL - Friday's game between Campbell- Tintah and Herman was as close to an instant replay of last year as was possible and the same team won. Last season Campbell- Tintah's Cougars blocked a Herman punt that later gave them a 6-0 victory. This time a blocked punt and a bad center snap by Herman gave the Cougars a 14-12 Pheasant Conference victory at Campbell Friday afternoon. With less than two minutes left in the first half, Rich Schmit fell on a blocked punt in the endzone for six points and a pass from quarterback Neal Klindt to Max Fuxa gave Campbell-Tintah an 8-0 first- half lead in a game played under 30-35-mile-per-hour wind conditions. Early in the final quarter Herman had its backs to the wall on a fourth and long yardage situation. The snap from center was low and Campbell tackled Brad Oachs when he tried to scramble out of trouble on the one-yard line. Three plays later Schmit broke off tackle for six points giving Campbell-Tinlah the win. Herman's first touchdown came on a 42-yard run by Doug Berg and a four-yard plunge by Mark Amundson gave the Panthers its 12th point of the game. The Panthers failed to convert both point-after- touchdown plays. With high winds howling out of the Southwest both Pheasant Conference teams were forced into using its ground attack. Herman won the battle of the statistics Friday. They had seven first downs to one for Campbell-Tintah, the Panthers • reeled off 59 offensive plays for 129 yards compared to 44 plays and 33 yards for the Cougars but couldn't ice the victory. In the defensive battle, hampered by the high winds, Herman had its final chance to pull out a win with less than 20 seconds remaining. The Panthers tried two straight passes before Campbell's Jeff Alberts picked off a Brad Oachs pass to end the game. Herman's Doug Berg was the leading rusher, 87 yards on 15 carries including his 42-yard touchdown run. Teammate Mark Amundson pulled his way- tor 44 yards on 16 carries. treated since Thursday for gastric influenza. He had been in poor health for months with complications that followed an operation for varicose veins. Kirk, a political moderate, became New Zealand's fourth I-abor prime minister in November 1972, capping a career that began as a ferry engineer in Auckland harbor. The 6-foot, 250 pounder entered Parliament in 1957 and remained in national politics, winning the ceremonial post of president of New Zealand in 1964. He is survived by his widow, Ruth, and five children. Kirk maintained close ties with workingmen and said after his election: "A prime minister should be. able to hear what the bloke living next door says, and not just what the head of government says. You can't give them everything they want, but it's their government and they are the ultimate power." 3 killed, 11 injured by sniper INDIO, Calif. (AP) - A sniper firing from a moving vehicle killed three persons and wounded 11 others during a five-hour shooting spree before dawn today, sheriff's deputies reported. Roadblocks were set up in an effort to stop the sniper. Details were sketchy but officers said it appeared that the dead and wounded were traveling in at least seven different vehicles. Two of the dead were shot in the head. The shooting began about 1 a.m. on Interstate 10 on the Southern California desert near Banning, about 90 miles east of Ixis Angeles, officers said. The sniper traveled east toward the Nevada border and apparently picked off other motorists at random with a small caliber weapon, they said. One victim was found near Indio by a highway patrolman who stopped to investigate what he thought was an automobile accident. 'On closer inspection, the patrolman saw that the motorist had been shot once through the head. A spokesman for Valley Memorial Hospital in Indio identified two of the dead as Herman Edge, 25, of Ixing Beach, and Billy Gene Tegarden, 41, of Bell Gardens. The hospital spokesman said two of the injured had arrived there and five more were expected. Dorothy Ferguson, 43, of Buena Park, was hospitalized in fair condition with a gunshot wound in the neck. The spokesman said Stanley Carey, 21, of Indio, was being treated for cuts caused by gunshot- splattered glass. The rest of the injured were taken to nearby hospitals. Their identities and conditions were not known immediately.
