Golfer Kathy Is Top Fern JAL, N.M. (AP) - Tile Whit- worths are proud about their daughter being named Female Athlete of the Year again, but they're the type of parents who "don't let me get carried away with myself." So says 27-year-old golfer Kalhy Whitworth, who was named The Associated Press top 196B female athlete Monday by 42 sports writers and radio and television broadcasters who gave her 15 first-place votes and a 729-vote total. It was the second straight year she won the honor. "I'm thrilled of course," she said Monday, "but nothing can take the place of last, year's lirst' award. Last year I never even thought about winning and it came as a big surprise. This year I had some warning." Miss Whitworth is the youngest of three daughters in the Morris Whitworth family in mis small southeast New Mexico town. Her father owns a hardware store. She says 'her parents won't build up her national ' : fame. * « * "They're great parents. They keep me on the right level." Her 729 votes in the final athlete poll gave her a big edge against runner-up Billie Jean King of Long Beach, Calif, the Wimbledon singles tennis cham- ; pitin who finished wltti 521 " points including 88 first-place votes. Points were awarded on a basis of 3 for a first-place vote, 2 for a second and 1 on third. Miss Whitworth repeated in 1966 as the leading money ' winner on the Ladies Profes- sionalGolf Association tour. She ' won nine official tournaments in 1966, her eighth year on the pro tour. Her' official earnings totaled $33,511. Runnerup Duel IntheSWC By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS While Texas Christian remains safely in its No. 1 spot, Texas and Southern, Methodist continue their battle Tuesday night for sole ownership of the ' No. 2 position in the Southwest Conference basketball race. The Southern Methodist Mustangs play Arkansas at Fayctteville while the Texas Longhorns journey to College Station to play the Aggies. The two Tuesday night tilts, are the only conference games this week because of final examinations. Saturday night Texas Tech is host to New Mexico State in an intersectional affair. Currently the Longhorns and Mustangs are tied for second place with 3-1 loop records while Texas Christian is the undisputed leader with a perfect 3-0 mark. Arkansas is 2-2 in loop play, Baylor is 1-2 and Texas Tech, Rice and Texas A&M are in the cellar with 1-3 records.

QUINT HIT 73-15 Papooses Glide LAST TIME LEACHVILLE HIGH'S LIONS APPEARED in Blytheville, they entered with an 11-0 season record. Today, 17 days later, they have a 19-0 reading. "Leachville's got a good setup," one of the coaches was saying. "They play basketball all year around." He was trying to explain why a small school like Leachville can consistently put persistently good teams on the floor and compete with the big schools. * * * "It means a lot when they're not interrupted with football like we are," the coach was saying. "And they've been playing together since junior high." He admitted there were exceptions on the Leachville club this year, John Linck and Ron Widner having come in last season. "But the Robins boy (Tommy) has been a starter seven years." He mentioned the Robins lad specifically because he seems to be a typical specimen, the kind Leachville has been producing, at least one a year, since I've been around. * * * Th« coach knew what he was talking about. He's been there. He knows. Talking was Doy Pannell, who put in six years as head coach of the Lions, hitting the jackpot state tournament in 1960 The next season he went to Paragould. He won another state title, this time with the Bulldogs in 1963. . „ . "We should've won it about four other times, too, he said, yet conceded a lot of other coaches might've voiced the same yearnings of regret and unrest. * * * Paragould surrendered to Leachville Saturday night. It was Leachville's 19th victory. For Doy's Dogs, it was-well, I'll spare him the embarrassment. It's a losing season. That's a nice way to put it. As Doy walked around Saturday night inside the familiar gym at Leachville where the action is this year, one wondered unimaginatively if he wished he were still with the Lions, back at the station where basketball is king, with no football injuries to worry about, with no football fans looking over his shoulder. All that John Widner (he's the third head coach at Leachville since Doy departed) has to worry about tonight is beating Blytheville. Last time Doy coached in Leachville about all he had to worry about was getting people to get his name right. It would come out Roy Pannell, Roy Parnell, Doy Parnell, even Doy Pannell sometimes. * * * Leachville is the No. 1 team in the state. That also makes Leachville the No. 1 target. Widner has a problem no other coach in Arkansas has. * * * QUITMAN SULLINS GOT EVEN WITH LAVAUGHN Robertson. Lavaughn's Hoxie High basketball team rode off with a win over Quitman's Gosnett Pirates Friday night but in semipro action Sunday afternoon at Goz, the Ark-Mo Killowatters trapped Hoxie Sporting Goods 102-75, Sullins sacked 23 points for Ark-Mo, teammate Jerry Hudgins hitting 25. Lavaughn emerged in good shape, however. He ran up 42 points. * * * FOUR-DOT DATA: Blytheville's Bill Ramey lettered in football at Arkansas Tech this year.

Papooses got with right away, shooting to a 24-6 ead in. the first quarter. Mitchell began a long parade of substitutes at this point and took he opportunity to experiment vith a new defense. The subs, the experiments, everything was successful. "What can you say about a game like this?" the coach asked himself. Then he got stern with himself: "I only hope we do as well Thursday night at Manila." * • .* * The Papooses bounced to a 36-11 halftime advantage, swep to a 58-13 lead in the third quar ter, then while pumping 1J HvlL»vffl» (Ark.)

Eighth grade tally sheet: Mike McCall and Ray Bunch 8s; Terry Payton G; Mike Julian 4; Stewart Baguley and Joe Ross 2s; and Mel Baker one. For the seventh: Charles Crigger 17; Ron Bisher 5; and Porter 2. James said he felt his boys could've won had they been al full strength. Goodman didn'l agree but he did grin.

There was no hullabaloo about it. They just went back into the huddle and marched it in for the score. Lombard! was referring to a penalty that wiped out Bart Starr's 64-yard touchdown pass to Carroll Dale. The Packers went right back to work after the penalty and moved back for a touchdown on the same series. 3,000 Greet the Losers KANSAS CITY (AP) - The Kansas City Chiefs, Super Bowl losers, were greeted by about 3,000 enthusiastic fans in windy, subfreezing weather at Mid- Continent International Airport Monday night.

Owner Lamar Hunt, coach Hank Stram and general manager Jack Steadmn expressed gratitude for the turnout and vowed they would, be back in the world title game next year. Their words were partially drowned out by the roar of the chartered jet's engines, but each sentence was punctuated by a roar from the crowd. Stram introduced 15 players and his coaching staff. Each received a loud cheer. Hunt said he was sorry many of the players had to stay behind to play in the AFL All-Star game.
