Greensburg "A Home Thrift Institution for Over 69 Years" Today's Sport Parade— Palmer Out to He Is Not Over By MILTON RICHMAN UPI Sports Writer LIGONIER, Pa.. (UPI) — Arnold Palmer, sounding exactly like one of those old Brooklyn Dodgers, thrusts his chin out and warns "wait till next year" should he fail to win this big one coming up. He isn't talking specifically about the PGA championship, which gets underway Thursday. He's talking about his golf game in general. At 35, Palmer's hearing and vision are still perfect. That means he isn't deaf to all the talk about him possibly being over the hill nor is he blind to the fact that those fickle, front- running galleryites are swinging more and more away from him and over toward golden boy Jack Nicklaus. Palmer hasn't won a tournament since early May and knows he's in one of the worst slumps of his career but he does not believe he's through. "I'd much rather think it has. just been a slow year for me. he said, thinking back to his goM troubles of the past few months. "I like to feel that I'm getting set for another year _ the one immediately ahead. "Whining the PGA means a whole lot to me. Especially because I've never won it and because I'm going to be playing this one in my own back yard. Not To Quit "I've played in five PGA Pressure on Arnie "Playing at Home" By LEO H. PETERSEN UPI Sports Writer LIGONIER, Pa., (UPI) — They call it the PGA golf Slow-Pitch Softball Scoring two runs in the last of the seventh inning on a home run by Bob Rust, Strasburger's Barber Shop squeezed by Herbert's Shell 9-7 Monday night to win undisputed first place in the American League and knock Herbert's out of a tie for the top spot in the National League. The Christian Church team beat the Methodist Church outfit 5-3 in the other tilt. The victory by the Strasburge crew set up a two-out-of-three playoff between them and Hill- Rom for the slow-pitch championship. Had Herbert's won Monday's game, the Shell aggregation and Hill-Rom v?ould have tied for the National League title and Strasburger's and Union Bank & Trust for the'American League crown. The first playoff contest between Hill-Rom and Strasburger's will be at 7:30 Wednesday. The second game, and if needed the third, will be played Thursday evening. The single-elimination tournament for all 16 local teams will get under way Friday and will be concluded next week. The schedule of regular season games will be completed with two tonight and the Bohn Aluminum-Knights of St. John Wednesday following the first playoff tilt. National League Standing W L Hill-Rom 14 1 Herbert's 13 2 Westport 10 5 Knights 9 5 Clarksburg 7 7 Smith Corp. 5 10 Crown Zellerbach 4 10 Christians 4 11 American League Standing W L Strasburger's 11 4 Union Bank 10 5 Bohn 8 6 BCA 7 7 Baptists 6 9 Delta 5 10 Jaycees 3 11 Methodists 1 14 The decisive affair between Strasburger's and Herbert's Shell saw the latter build a 6-0 lead in the first 3M> innings. However, the winning barber shop outfit plated two runs each in the fourth and fifth frames and, after the service station bunch had added a run in the top of the sixth, knotted the count 7-7 with three tallies in the bottom of the sixth on successive doubles by Porter, Rust and Bewley and a single by Strasburger. After the losers went down in order in the top of the seventh, Naylor led off the victors' half with a walk. The next two batters popped up but Rust then smacked his game-winning homer. The winners had 16 hits to the losers' 12. For Strasburger's, Bewley had three doubles and Hahn, Navarra, Rust and Strasburger two hits apiece. Knecht collected three safeties for Herbert's and Nieman, Hermesch and Meyer two each. Burkert was the winning pitcher and Worland the loser. In the other game, which was rather anti-climactic, the Christians scored three runs in the fourth round to break a 2-2 tie and went on to down the Methodists 5-3. The latter counted their other tally in the sixth. Both clubs had 10 hits with S. Brown and Hubbard getting a pah" for the winners and Jones and Ogden a brace for the losers. Buell pitched for the Christians and Ryle for the Methodists. championship but a better name for it would be the Arnold Palmer Open. This is Arnold Palmer country and although he is only one in a field of 172 golfers who will tee off Thursday, he is the only one you hear about. There are signs everywhere, urging "Go, Arnie, Go" and if you don't wear a button proclaiming "I'm One of Arnie's .Army" then you just aren't from this rustic section of the country known as "Palmer land." Arnie lives down the road a piece — in Latrobe — but the Laurel Valley layout here is his home course and the golfing fans of the area want the world to know it. Palmer has known it all along. He also knows that the only reason they are playing the PGA here — 50 miles from the Pittsburgh metropolitan area — is because it's Arnie's home grounds. Championship Course But the setting is the only thing "country" about it. The course is a championship one in every other respect. ""'It's tough, but fair," maintains Palmer, who has played 100 rounds on it. The best he has ever done is a four under par 67 over the 7,090-yard layout. Palmer appears as charged up over the tournament as his legion of fans. Although he dropped o u t of the Whitemarsh Open last week after shooting a disastrous second round, and has been criticized for it, Palmer admit:ed he had everything going for him this time — perhaps, even his putter. That's the club which has kept Arnie from the golfing success he is so used to thus far this year. "But I think I'm getting the feel back," Palmer said, adding that he didn't think there would be extra pressure on him because he is playing in his own backyard before his friends and neighbors. Palmer Likes Chances "I think my chances of winning this one are better than they have been for any other tournament I've played in this year," Palmer reasoned.. "I feel I'm driving much better and I'm feeling better about my putting. If I can start dropping a couple of long ones, I should do well. "After all, I'm at home, where I like to be and I know the course reasonably well." As if the home town pressure isn't enough, there is added pressure on Palmer in this one. It's the only major tournament he never has won and this is his sixth crack at it. He is 35 now and realizes if he doesn't add the PGA to his titles soon, it may be too late. "But I'm not thinking that way at all," Palmer insisted. "I'm thinking only in terms of winning this one." Few Win Four If he does, he will join Gary Player, Ben Hogan and Gene Sarazen as the only golfers ever to win the four major pro championships — the U. S. Open, the 'British Open, the PGA and the Masters. Player, the current U. S. Open champion, and Hogan, who will be 53 on Friday, are among the golfers Palmer has to beat. But he figures his biggest problem wpl be Jack Nicklaus, who has won the last two tournaments, the $100,000 Thunderbird and the $125,000 Whitemarsh Open last Sunday. "Jack is playing wonderful golf and on this course — or any other course for that matter — you have to consider him as the man to beat," said Palmer. . championships before and I 'know this is my. best crack, but even if I don't win this time I'm not going to give up and quit. "If I don't win this one," continued the man who has won every other major golf title, "I'll start all over next year and give it a good go." The way Palmer spoke, it sounded as if he planned to store his clubs in the family closet for the rest of the year at the^conclus'ion of the PGA. He explained, however, he didn't mean it that way. Not quite. "What I do mean is that I'll play very little golf anymore this year after the PGA,"- he said. "I'D play only two or three more tournaments at the most." ' : Physically and mentally, Palmer never has felt any better than he does at the moment, according to him. He made that claim even though he withdrew after playing the first two rounds of the $125,000 Whitemarsh Open in Philadelphia last week because he was mentally fatigued. Some criticized him for withdrawing. Others sympathized with him because they knew of the many problems he had in view of the fact that the PGA championship was to be held on his "own" Laurel Valley course here and he was responsible for many pre-tournament arrangements. The criticism hurt him somewhat. Wasn't To Plaj "I told the Whitemarsh people I wasn't going to _~!ay in their tournament to begin with," he explained. "I did only because they asked me. I had a lot of things on my mind. I was worried about this stuff (meaning the PGA preparations.)" That's all behind him now, though, and all he has to do is concentrate on winning the PGA, a feat he has been unable to accomplish in five previous tries. "The conditions are near ideal for me," he confessed. "I'm at home and I'll be piping a course I know reasonably welL I think my Chances are good. Better than they have been any time this year." "If I don't win, though, it won't be the end. Like I say, I'll just start all over again next year and put this one completely out of my mind." "' Palmer has the determination to do it. Whether he still has all the shots, however, is another matter.

GRANATO UPI ''Sports Writer Robin Roberts; the former whiz.kid, isn't a "was" kid after all. , * But for a while there, the only ones who realized it were the big right -'handed pitcher 'arid the Houston Astros, who were smart enough, to sign him Friday after the Baltimore Orioles of the American League had cut him loose. Roberts, the ace of the Philadelphia Phillies' mound staff for a decade, went the route Monday night to shut out his former team 8-0 on only four hits. . ' -•-.-• In the only other major league action' Dean" Chance of the Los Angeles Angels two-hit the Cleveland Indians and beat them 9-0, Once Phils Mainstay "Tonight was one of those nights where "everything went my way," the exultant Roberts said. He's had nights like these before, especially as the" mainstay of the Phillie pitching staff when "the 1950 version — the Whiz Kids — won "the National League pennant in the last game of the season against the Dodgers. 'TVIy fast ball and curve and Changeup were all 'working for me," the 38-year-6l<i former fireballer said. "It was quite a thrill for me. We got plenty of runs, and I had nice stuff. It's really a nice feelinng." The Phillies dealt Roberts to the New York Yankees in 1961. The Yanks took a look at him and promptly shuffled him to Baltimore. This season the Orioles intended to use Roberts as a reliever, and the right-hander wasn't having any. He asked out. Promised Starting Role Baltimore put him on the block and the Astros 'signed him as a free agent. They promised to start him. They renewed the promise after his Monday performance.

Tony Gonzalez bad three of the Phillies hits, a double "and, two^singles. Burdette lost his fifth deci-. sion against two victories. This made Roberts' record 1-0 in the NL to go with his -5-7 Al,'record. Chance's brilliant performance was reminiscent of last season when the strong .right- hander won 20 games for the fifth-place Angels, leading both leagues in shutouts with 11 and 'in the earned run average department with 1.65- He won the Cy Young Memorial Award as the outstanding pitcher in the majors. The Angel nurler evened his record at 8-8. He walked only two 'and struck out 10 Indians. After loser Sam McDowell had given up two runs in eacS of the third, fourth and fifth innings, Joe Koppe, Joe Adcock and Willie Smith all homered off the third Cleveland pitcher, Lee Stange.
