Colbert Leads Masters AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) "The Old Lady was asleep," said stubby Jim Colbert, refusing to gloat over his 67 that led a subpar charge into today's second round of the Masters Golf Tournament, "but you better not get cocky and over confident. She'll wake up and snap back at you." The Old Lady is the Augusta National course, spoken of in personal terms since the day the broad and demanding layout came out of the head of the late Bob Jones. It was Jones who labelled his green-garlanded brainchild "a fickle lady." "She has to be petted and cajoled," said the immortal Grand Slam king. "If you try to attack her, if you treat her rough, she will devour you." She merely purred in the opening round Thursday when a crazy quilt collection of fa- Morningside to Stay in League SIOUX CITY, lowa(AP)- Morningside College will remain in the North Central Conference and will attempt to upgrade its athletic program with contributions from outside sources. The college's board of directors made that decision earlier this week after hearing a report submitted by a special committee which studied the school's intercollegiate athletic program. Morningside's withdraw] from the eight-team conference was one of the options the committee was directed to study when it was formed last November at the suggestion of the board. The only amendment made by the board to the study committee's eight-page report provides that another "in-depth study" be made with two year to see what progress has been made. In support of remaining in the North Central Conference, the committee expressed doubt that Morningside could continue an athletic program as an independent and noted that no vacancies exist in other conferences which the college might consider. The report called the North Central Conference "a quality conference." The conference includes Morningside, Northern Iowa, Augustana, S.D., North Dakota, North Dakota State, South Dakota, South Dakota State and vorites turned Augusta's par 72 into a sham. Twenty-one broke it, six others tied it. "The golf course was not its most difficult," said the 3-1 favorite and four-time winner, Jack Nicklaus, registering a 69 despite a bogey on the final hole. Young Johnny Miller, the 4-1 second choice as the result of his three tournament winning streak early in the year, had an erratic round that left him Mankato, Minn., State. Increased support from outside sources is necessary, the committee said, in order to bring the Chiefs' program up to the level of other conference members. Morningside failed to win a basketball game two seasons ago and last season finished 918 over-all and sixth in the North Central this past season. The Chiefs were 0-9 in football in 1973. In order that Morningside might compete at "a fully competitive level," the committee proposed two avenues of raising additional money —development of athletic booster clubs and increased sale of season tickets. The committee also reported that women's athletics at Morningside "need and deserve more financial support, even though the program has progressed significantly during the past two years." at par 72. Augusta's 7,020 yards wore a lush green carpet. The massive, undulating greens were relatively slow, permitting bold shots at the pin. Until the arrival of tricky gusts late in the afternoon, the wind was little more than a gentle whisper. "They say rain is coming," said Nicklaus. "That could change things. If, on the other hand, the greens get fast, it will help the better players and more sharply divide the field." Entering today's second 18. with a 30 per cent chance of afternoon thundershowers forecast, Colbert had a one stroke lead over a trio of 20-1 or higher longshots, Don Iverson, Hale Irwin and Hubert Green. Arnold Palmer, like Nicklaus shooting for his fifth Masters title, was Times Herald, Carroll, la. Friday, April 12, 1974 uncomfortably placed at 76, in danger of missing the 36-hole cut. "I am sick," the 44-year-old Arnie, unable to recapture his old putting magic, said of his opening round score. Colbert is a 33-year-old former Kansas State Freshman football player who is entering his ninth year as a touring pro. He putted sensationally, thanks to an impromptu putting lesson from Australian Bruce Crampton. and rang in six birdies. Ryun Enters Drake Hall Rain Saves Chicago's Katt Redbirds Take Pair from Mets; Rogers Beats Bucs By the Assoc. Press Tom Seaver and Bob Gibson, used to mowing down opposing batters with relative ease, are learning how the other half lives. As far as Steve Rogers is concerned, though, there isn't any other half. Seaver and Gibson hooked up in the opener of a doubleheader Thursday and neither was around at the finish. The St. Louis Cardinals rocked Seaver for six runs on 10 hits in five innings, including three homers, while Gibson, unable to hold a 6-0 lead, was chased in the seventh by the New York Mets. However, the Cardinals rallied for two runs in the eighth and an 8-7 victory. They completed a sweep by taking the nightcap 4-3 with a pair of runs in the ninth. Meanwhile, Rogers, baseball's latest pitching prodigy, made his 1974 debut and hurled the Montreal Expos past the winless Pittsburgh Pirates 5-1, allowing six hits and an unearned run. Rogers made 17 starts after coming up from the minors last August and pitched well in all of them—a 10-5 record and 1.54 earned run average. Elsewhere in the National League, the Houston Astros walloped the hapless San Diego Padres 9-1, Hank Aaron hit home run No. 716 in the Atlanta Braves' W triumph over the Los Angeles Dodgers and the Philadelphia Phillies edged the Chicago Cubs 4-3 on Tommy Hutton's two-run pinch homer in the ninth. San Francisco and Cincinnati had the day off. The Cardinals began their assault on Seaver, the NL's 1973 Cy Young Award winner, in the second inning on Ken Reitz' solo homer. Joe Torre connected in the third with one man aboard and Lou Brock socked a three-run shot in the third. Expos 5, Pirates 1 Willie Davis drove in the first run with a sacrifice fly while Ron Fairly drove in two with a double and single. "My breaking ball had to be sharp because you just can't rear back and throw against the Pirates," Rogers said.

(AP) - A Superior Court judge here has ordered Little League Baseball Inc., to comply with "the letter and spirit" of a State Division on Nivil Rights ruling that permits girls to play on league teams. Judge Irwin I. Kimmelman in the Superior Court Chancery Division also ordered Little League Inc., headquartered in Williamsport, Pa., to notify its 330 New Jersey leagues "in no uncertain terms" that they must comply with the ruling or have their charters revoked. The judge's ruling Thursday enables the state attorney general 's office to enforce the civil rights division order. Deputy Atty. Gen. Helen Forsyth said the state could begin acting on complaints of noncompliance by charging contempt of court against leagues and individuals. The Little League appealed a lower court ruling in favor of the civil rights division to the Appellate Division of Superior Court, which upheld the order on March 29. Last Friday the league took its appeal to the New Jersey Supreme Court. AP Sports Writer For a fellow who's allowed seven runs and 14 hits in 91-Vb innings pitched this season, Jim Katt hasn't lost his sense of humor. The reason? Friendly skies which exploded at just the right moment to turn potential losses into rainouts. Kaat pitched 6'% innings Sunday against the California Angels, permitting nine hits and three runs before he departed. The White Sox managed to tie the game 4-4 before play was halted and the game postponed—thanks to a snow storm over White Sox Park. Thursday's game was no different. In just 2%, innings, the Minnesota Twins struck for five hits and four runs before the skies opened upon Metropolitan Stadium. In other American League action Thursday, the Detroit Tigers topped the New York Yankees 4-1, the Baltimore Orioles edged the Boston Red Sox 7-6 in 11 innings, the Milwaukee Brewers nipped the Cleveland Indians 7-5, and the California Angels defeated the Texas Rangers 11-8. "I'm specializing in throwaway games this season," said Kaat, tongue very much in cheek. But another pitcher, Minnesota's Joe Decker, knew- exactly how Kaat felt. Decker had given up four runs and five hits in six innings to the White Sox Thursday and was trailing 6-1 Sunday when the Twins' game with the Kansas City Royals was rained out. "Normally," added Decker in an apparent understatement, "I'm a slow starter." The game will be replayed in its entirety at a later date, but all the hitting and pitching records will go into the final statistics. Tigers 4, Yankees 1 Joe Coleman fared considerably better in his outing for Detroit, holding New York hitless for 71-3 innings on the way to a two-hitter. Mickey Stanley hit a two-run homer in the seventh, while Aurelio Rodriguez and Ed Brinkman drove in the other Tiger runs with singles. Gene Michael ruined the no- hitter with a ground single up the middle in the eighth inning and Roy White kayoed the shutout with a leadoff home _run in the ninth. Orioles 7, Red Sox 6 B al timore's Elrod Hendricks scored from second base in the llth inning when an attempted double play Sports Glances LL Sign-up Little League sign-up will continue until sometime next week, according to the league's commissioner Bob Beeson. Boys between the ages of eight and 15 can sign up at either the Uptown Sporting Goods or the Carroll County State Bank. Registration fee is $5.

Drake Football There will be some new faces but basically Jack Wallace is looking for hitters when he sends Drake through its annual spring football game Saturday night at Newton. "We'll go No. 1 against No. 2'." said Wallace, as he preps his squad for his 10th season as head coach at Drake. "Our No. 1 offense will go against the No. 2 defense, our f Jo. 2 offense against the No. 1 defense. And later in the going we'll mix the personnel up tome to get a look at different LWbinations." The game will be playeil under controlled conditions With part of the kicking game taken out. Bookies Arrested Sixteen persons, including a former major league pitcher and a 79-year-old woman, were arrested Thursday in a raid on what police called a "million dollar a year" bookmaking ring. Santa Clara County Sheriff Lt. Mike Miller said a special crime task force made the arrests on warrants issued following a seven-month undercover investigation. He said at least six more arrests were expected. Miller said seven arrests were made at the Rumpus Room Bar in San Jose, Calif., which officers believe was a headquarters for the operation. Among those arrested at the bar was former New York Yankees' pitcher Eli Grba, 39. Elected to Hall Nine former college football greats including Elroy "Craxy Legs" Hirsch were elected to the National Football Foundation Hall Thursday. Iowa Baseball The University of Iowa baseball team, ranked 21st nationally, begins its Big Ten Conference campaign Saturday at Minnesota.

BOARD TO MEET The Board of Directors of the Manning Community School District will hold a special meeting in the auditorium of the high school building in Manning at 8 p.m. April 25. DES MOINES, Iowa (AP)— Kansas greats Jim Ryun and Ernie Shelby and Rice's Fred Hansen will be inducted into the Drake Relays Hall of Fame next week, Relays Director Bob Ehrhart said Thursday. Ryun enters the Drake Hall of Fame in his first year of eligibility—five years after completion of collegiate competition. The three were NCAA champions and two either hold or have held world marks. They were all grand slam winners on the midwest track circuit, scoring victories at Texas, Kansas and Drake in the same year. Ryun first made his mark at the Drake Relays when he won a special mile-run as a freshman in 1966 in four minutes Player Draft for Hawkeye Spring Game IOWA CITYTlowa (AP) — New Iowa Coach Bob Com- rnings wants to put some fun in the Hawkeyes' spring football drills by conducting a player draft for the intrasquad game April 20.

"We're going to put some life in our spring game by letting the players and coaches choose up sides this weekend. "I want to make the final week of practice more fun for everyone and make the spring game entertaining for our 1'ans. We'll put in a few trick plays and let the teams do pretty much what they want."

The following year he stormed from 45 yards back to anchor the Kansas four-mile relay team to victory over archrival Kansas State in 16:43.0, running a 3:59.1 mile leg. He then anchored the Jayhawks to a world mark of 9:33.8 in the distance medley, blazing the mile in 3:55.6, the finest relay mile ever at Drake. Ryun held the 880-yard world mark until last summer when Rick Wohlhuter cut it down with a 1:44.6 mark. Ryun's finest was 1:44.9. His mile mark of 3:51.1 still stands. Shelby, also a Jayhawker, ruled the long jump pits in the late 1950s. Twice he won at Drake, going 24 feet 8Vfe inches in 1958 and 24 9te in 1959. Those same years he was the NCAA champion and was twice king of the AAU national meet. It earned him successive all-America listings. Shelby saved his best effort for the first meeting of the United States and USSR track teams when he won the long jump with a 26-0V^ effort. Hansen was the first of the 17-foot pole vaulters, back in 1964 when he topped 17-2 and then 17-4 and later won the AAtJ championship at 17-0. He led the Rice delegation to Drake in those years, grand slamming for the Owls in 1962 and 1963 with successive winning jumps of a record 15-3% and 15-7%, the first of two Rice vaulters to dominate the Drake scene. Dave Roberts won back to back titles in 1971 and 1972. Hansen, now a dentist in Houston, Texas, capped his career by winning the gold medal in the Tokyo Olympic Games in 1964, going 16-9 for the title.
