(AP) — Two fine drivers have died at her wheel in two years of unlimited hydroplane racing but the "Miss Budweiser" will be rebuilt and race again. 'I think Bill Brow would have wanted it that way," said the boat's owner, Bemie Little of Tampa. We're going to be professionals about it." Brow, 4, of Seattle, Wash., was riding the thundering hydroplane across Tampa Bay Sunday at more than 150 miles an hour — out in front, as usual. Among the 10,000 fans on shore were his mother, brother and sister. For the first time in Brow's nine-year racing career his wife had stayed home. Their 18 year-old daughter, Becky, was graduating from high school. The boat, roared into the smooth backslretch and apparently hit a swell, a wake rolling back from one of 200 moored spectator boats, or something in the water. No one is certain. Three tons of boat, engine and man tipped up on its right, side and disappeared in a wall of white water. A Coast Guard helicopter pulled Brow from the water. He was unconscious and was given moutli-lo-mouth resuscitation as the chopper rushed liim lo St. Joseph's Hospital. At 2 p.m. Dr. Dave Worthington turned from Brow's broken body and said, He probably never had a chance." Brow already had his second chances. In 1959 Brow survived similar accident in Lake Couer d'Alene, Idaho. One year ago, also in the first lap of the Tampa Suncoast Regatta, Brow fractured his shoulder. So Don Wilson of West Palm Beacli, Fla., substituted for Brow at Miss Budweiser's throttle in the President's Cup race in Washington, D.C. * * * A boat driven by Rex Manchester, also of Seattle, collided with Miss Bud killing both drivers. Ron Musson, also of Seattle, was killed in the same race and Chuck Thompson of Detroit died two weeks later in the Gold Cup race on the Detroit River. Brow's death was the fifth in the last nine unlimited hydro races. Seagren Soars; Jim Slows that race, he said the drop to I hind Martin Liquori, 17-year-old By MIKE RECHT Bob Seagren raised himself up 17 feet, seven inches while Jim Ryun dropped 2,400 feet, possibly explaining why only Seagren turned in an individual world record performance last weekend in major track meets. Seagren, 20-year-old University of Southern California sophomore, set his pending world mark in the pole vault on a chilly evening in the San Diego Invitational track and field meet Saturday night. He missed in his first attempt and later failed at 17-10 as he erased John Fennel's record 17-6'A at os Angeles in July 1966. "i" tried a new pole at Occidental Friday and couldn't clear year. 16 feet," he said. "I broke.the new" pole tonight (Saturday) in the^varm-up, so I went back to myTold pole. I'll never use another." While Seagren was soaring witK his new pole, Ryun missed badly at Albuquerque, N.M., in an ^attempt to shatter his own record mile of 3:51.3, or the 1:44.9- half-mile record he had takin away by the AAU-NCAA feud; Ryun won the 880 in 1:47.2 Friday night at the U. S. Track end-Field Federation meet and turned in a disappointing, but winning 4:09.3 mile Saturday night. Afterward, the Kansas sophomore said he will run only the miia in this weekend's NCAA meet and is returning to spend his-.; pro-meet preparation at I Adams State College at 7,500- faotrAlamosa, Colo. — 2,400 feet higjjjfer than Albuquerque. ''liran an easy race," he said «f ,8is 15-yard victory in the miie. "Nobody pushed me. I ran just'to win." Pfrt of his decision not to pusS the mile probably is ex- placed by his 880 time. After Albuquerque's level bothered pre schooler from Caldwell, him. N.J. Liquori ran the third fast"I'm going back to Alamosa cst mile for a high schooler, and stay there until the NCAA | winning in 4:00.1. meet in Provo, Utah. By then, I should have a pretty good idea about altitude running." The USC 440-yard relay squad turned in the only other pending world record performance at the San Diego meet as Earl McCullouch, Fred Kuller, 0. J. Simpson and Lennox Miller covered the distance in 39 seconds flat. ' Southern University set the old mark of 39.6 in 1966 and j Texas "outhern, UCLA and this same Trojan four tied it this Another miler also had a bad night. Dave Patrick, Villanova's national collegiate indoor champion, ill with the flu, finished third at San Diego in 4:02.5 be- Brow's brother, Don, himselt a former hydro pilot, said at the hospital, I guess you'd just have to stay it's one of those things." When Brow's Miss Budweiser tangled with water it couldn't ride over, Brow had just raced past Miss Madison driven by Ed O'Halloran of Mount Clemens. Mich. O'Halloran won the heat. Over-all winner in the $25,000 race was Bill Schumacher of Seattle driving Miss Bardahl. His average speed was 96.914 m.p.h. O'Halloran was second in Miss Madison at 89.356 m.p.h.

El Paso's lone tally came in the second inning when right fielder Don Wilkinson smashed a home run over the left field fence. Fred Newman, a former California Angels' regular trying to work out some sore arm trouble, held tli eTravelers to three hits in his six and one-third inning stint. It was his second victory against no losses. Arkansas had runner on.first and second in the eighth inning against El Paso's Dave Turnbull, who came in when Newman tired in the extreme heat and humidity, but Bill Boehlert, the second reliever, retired Tommy Smith on a ground ball for the third out. Boehlert pitched himself out of a jam in the ninth inning when two Arkansas runners got on via a hit batsman and an error. Wilkinson's round • tripper came off loser Brian Sinnott, 3-3. Arkansas swept botn ends of a doubleheader against the Sun Kings Saturday, 5-3 and 5-4, for a brief hold on second place.
