Keith Madole went all the way on the mound for the Loafers, giving up seven hits and striking gut six. One of the hits he gave up was a three-run first inning homer by Lance Blackwell which gave the Lions sn early 3-0 lead Bruce Smith started for the Lions and was tagged with the L/Ve/y's 66 Shares Lead EDINA, Minn. (AP) - If it weren't for the presence of defending champion Dan Sikes. they might be calling this the Obscure Open. With most of the game's glamor names in England for the British Open, the rookies and also-rans barged out of the ranks of the faceless young men and turned the $100,000 Minnesota Golf Classic into their private field day. John Lively, up from the qualifying ranks, and lanky Mac McLendon shared the first round lead with 66s, five under par on the 6,913-yard Braemar Golf Club course. Lively, a 29-year-old Texan who has won only $1,030 in official tour money this year, was such a long shot that even he didn't think his early 66 would stand up for a share of the lead "They'll tear it up," he said Thursday, "The course is playing extremely easy. They'll shoot a lot of good scores out there." They did. But only McLendon, who finished only a few minutes behind the former Texas A&M ace, could match his effort, 1 • loss, giving way to Blackwell in the third and then David Camp in the fourth. The loafers carved out nine hits, but got only three of them in the second inning when they rubbed out any 0-3 deficit with a seven run rally. ; A walk, a hit batter and a coupte of Lion errors helped the Loafers to their seven runs. Then they added the other five runs in the third behind five hits to make it 12-3 The Lions narrowed it to the final 12-5 edge in the bottom of the third with two runs on three hits but the damage had been done. Bart Johnson and Don Jones each had two hits to lead the Loafers while Bruce Smith and Dickey Hall turned the same trick for the Lions. The Buffs needed just two innings to rack up their 17 runs against the Buffs They started off with nine in the first and got the other eight scores in the second frame, needing just 10 hits in the process. The Vets got two runs in the i second and another in the third I but the dam had already been opened. I Tracy Middleton was the win; ning pitcher although Bill Dun• can replaced him on the mound in the third inning. Together they ! gave up three hits. Dean Low started for the Buffs and was the loser, with Allan ; Wyatt and Mario Molina following him at pitcher. Rodney Folsom got the biggest blow of the game for the Buffs, a three-run homer in the second. Middleton paced the Buff hit! ting attack with three safeties in ; as many tries while Folsom ! and Reyes Cardenas each had two hits. AMERICAN LEAGUE W Legionnaires 9 Buffs 8 ; Pepper Uppers 5 Vets 1 NATIONAL LEAGUE W ; Discounters 9 Raiders 7 Loafers 5 , Lions 2 L 2 4 7 10 Heat on Staubach Again As Pokes Prepare for Drills (AP) — Six years after he stunned the collegiate football world with enough dazzle at quarterback to earn a Heisman Trophy, roger Slaubaeh tries a t-omeback and he's already in the spotlight. With the retirement last week of Don Meredith, the Dallas Cowboys must look for a dependable quarterback. Staubach, now out of the Navy, joins the National Football League team here today hoping to fill the void. When pre-season training begins at California Lutheran College here, Staubach and Craig Morton, former California standout, will battle for the No. 1 spot. Staubach was named the nation's outstanding college player in 1963 after leading Navy to a 9-1 record. He was a junior. Morton, a five-year sub for Meredith, has been named by Coach Tom Landry as the top signal caller. But Staubach is apparently in the hot seat. If Morton falters, he gets the call. Meredith's retirement came after the Cowboys traded Jerry Rhorne to Cleveland, feeling they didn't need three quarterbacks. Now they have only one veteran and he's played only sparing!)'. Staubach showed he wants to play football last July. He took a two-week leave from the Navy and for 1ft days here tossed the ball with accuracy, guided the offense well and snowed quickness afoot.

By HAL BOCK Associated Press Sporti Writer Hawk Harrelson, his wings stiff from half a season on the ground, is starting to stir and his pace, for the last week at least, is almost as fast as Harmon Killebrew's, who's been flying all year long. Both Harreison and Killebrew hammered home runs Thursday helping Cleveland and Minnesota to victories and continuing hot slugging streaks. Harrelson *s shot, which helpad the Indians whip Detroit 7-5 in 11 innings was his fourth in the last seven days. Killebrew, with five homers in seven days, drilled his 25th of the year in Minnesota's 6-5 victory over Kansas City.

Norm Cash's pinch homer tied it for the Tigers in the hot- • torn lialf of the inning but Tony Horton'e bases-loaded, two-out ; single drove in Cleveland's win-' ning runs in the 11th.
