Nicklaus out in front in Doral MIAMI (UPI) - Jack Nict laus. not putting well but with "the ball falling in for me,'" led a well-massed calvary charge Of par busters into the third round of the $50,000 Doral Invitational golf tournament today. The blond Buckeye stood all square at 136 along with Rex Baxter of Amarillo, Tex., and Bob Shave of Willougby, Ohio, after a day of sensational shoot ing in which golden boy Arnold Palmer, still struggling to re capture his winning touch, could do no better than his second straight par round. That left Palmer eight shots off the pace but a host of others still were in the running. Slammin' Sammy Snead at 51 relinquished the lead he had taken witli an opening 68 but scored a 69 which left him only one stroke behind at 137. An other veteran, 50 .yearK )ld Joe Lopez, Sr.,^ of Key West, popped in his second straight 69 for 138 while Jay Hebert had a 69, too, for 139. Jay 's brother, Lionel,, carded a second straight 70 along with Billy Casper and Dave Marr to stand at 140 and only five shots behind at 141 were Mike Sou- chak, Tommy Aaron, Jack Rule, Jr., and Dave HilL Defending champion Dan Sikes took bis second straight 75 to miss the 148 cut mark and bow out of the tournament but this was due to a day of red- hot shooting over the 7,028-yard Doral course, a monster which the pros tamed handily because .there was little wind to affect their play. Baxter, 28 - year - old former NCA champion, started the day by breaking the course record with a 33-33—66. Shave, who putts with a pendulum putter and strokes the ball from between his legs "like pilchmg pennies," tied him with a 33-34 —67. Then Nicklaus came storming in with an eagle and four birdies for a 32-34—66 wtich matched Baxter's new course record. Frank Howard to talk with Buiiie Bavasi GREEN BAY, Wis. (UPI) The Los Angeles Dodgers viewed their chances of retaining their world championsUp with more confidence today, as it appeared slugger Frank Howard might change bis mind about retiring, Howard, the 6-foot-8, outfield er who stunned the baseball world last M-eek by confirming he was quitting at age 27, now says he hopes to go to Vero Beach, Fla., next week to talk with E. J. (Buzzie) Bavasi, Dodger general manager. Howard was quoted from his Green Bay home by Lou Chap man of the Milwaukee Sentinel Friday as saying he has "had lot of personal problems straightened out" and would be in "a better frame of mind to talk to Buzzie next week." Bavasi said flatly Friday night he understood Howard was "reconsidering" his decision to quit. "Let's face it," Bavasi said. "We want lum and we need him. None of us ever felt that Carol (Sirs. Howard) bad interfered with his decision." Bavasi said he will call Howard this weekend and invite him to the Dodger spring camp for a conference. Howard would cite only "personal problems" for his reason for quitting, and many had taken that to mean bis wife objected to Frank playing far home. My mle wants me to play," he said. "Any criticism of her has been unjust and undeserving. A lot o£ people think my «Tfe wants me to stay home, but that isn't true. If anything, my wife has been too consider' ate. It's unfair that she has to bear the brunt of the criticism." Howard also modified his earlier statement that it would be virtually impossible to play this season ia any case because he was "mentally and physically out of shape." "I've always taken care of myself," said the one-time Ohio State basketball star. Koufax to start against Yankees Not just brute strength Gary Player says U.S. Open besf test of golf Rodriguez wins over Mims NEW YORK (UPI) - Es- champion Luis Rodriguez, the best welterwieght in the middleweight division, was reward ed today nith his 12th bout against a middleweight ne.\t month because of his triumph as » substitute over veteran Hblly Mints. Rodriguez, former ruler of the 147-pound division who nev er has lost to a middleweight, according to trainer Angelo Dundee, scored a unanimous 10-round decision over Mims in a nationally-televised bout at Madision Square Garden Friday night. As a result of his excellent performance, Rodriguez, who is scheduled to meet welterwwght champios Emile Griffith in a title fight at Las Vegas, Nev., June 12, was awarded another 10-round bout with Jesse Smith of Philadelphia at Miami Beach, AprU 3, by promoter Harry Markson. Rodriguez, substituting for second - ranking middleweight contender Joey Archer, gave away seven pounds to the 35 year-old Slims but carried the fight to his heavier opponent In the fifth and sixth rounds, Rodriguez had Mims on the ropes with a barage of left books to the head and body. But Mims, from Washington, D.C., weathered the storm and finished strong in the ninth and 10th roimds. No knockdowns were scored by either of the strong punchers, neither of whom has ever been floored in his career. By OSCAR FRALEY UPI Sports Writer MIAMI (UPI) - Outspoken Gary Player, his sights set on winning the U.S. Open, today criticized most modem golf courses as tests of brute strength which ignore the basic essentials of accuracy and fi nesse. 'That's why I'd rather win the U.S. Open than any other tournament," said the little South African. "The way the courses are set up for the Open it is the finest test of golf in the world." His reasoning is that Open courses are laid out so that straying tee shots exact a pen ally and "the rough is really rough as it should be." Player is only five feet, seven inches tall but he learned when he first joined the U.S. pro tour in 1957 that he would have to "have better muscles" to smash the ball with the big hitters. "When I went to the Masters in 1960 I knew there was no way I could ever win unless 1 was able to go for those par fives with my second shot," he explained. "So I turned to weight lifting and calisthenics and put about 15 yards or more on my shots. In one year I was able to go for those par fives and I won it." Player, who now has the strength to "hit the baU hard on every shot without tiring during a round," has been one of the most successful players on the tour. In a total of 130 tournaments he has been out of the money only six fimes and is 13th on the modem money wiiming list, compiled since 1947, with total earnings of $214,000. The black-haired, brown-eyed man is vastly proud of the fact that along with Arnold Palmer and Jack Nicklaus he is only the third man in the current era who has won three of the big four — the U.S. Open, Masters, PGA and British Open. Palmer lacks the PGA and Nicklaus the British Open. "The one I need, of course, is the U.S. Open," he commented. "Naturally, rd ^ve almost anything to win it and this may be my year. When I first came to the sUtes I had sir ambitions. This is the only one I have yet to fulfilL" The other five, all accomplished, were to be the leading money winner, lead in the Vardon Trophy race for low scoring average over the year and win the Masters, PGA and British Open. "I've been close twice," he remembered almost dolefully. "I was second to Tommy bolt at Tulsa in 1958 and finished three shots back of Julius Boros at Brookline last year. I've been in the first 10 every time I've played except once." Tlie 28-year-old Player credits Bob Toski with fixing the face of his driver so that "I firmly believe I will have my best year in 1964." "It's going to take great golf to win the Open this year at Congressional Country Club in Washtagton," he asserted. "I played the course recently and it'll be the toughest U.S. Open course I ever played. That's because the man who hits it off line is going to be penalized, just as he should be." Player went back to his beef at this point about "monster" courses. "I say good luck to the fel low who can hit it 300 y.nrds and keep it straight," he argued. "But too often you can hit it 60 yards off line, or more, and you still have a shot at the green. That's not golf as it should be played." The little man can slug the ball with most of them and admits that he has won his share on the "brute force" layout":. But there are a lot of fine players who will agree with him that fihesse and accuracy should pay greater dividends. Colts stqn power hitter HOUSTON (UPI)-Roy Beth le, a 17-year-old power hitter from the Bahama Islands, has been signed by the Houston Colts. Bethle. a 6-2. 180-pound out fielder, will be sent to the Class A SUtcsvUle chib of the West- em Carolina League. By United Pr«M InfemaKonal Los Angeles Dodger Manager Walt Alston denies he planned it this way but the New York Yankees are skeptical. The Yankees and Dodgers meet for the first time in 167 days today—since the fourth and final game of the 1963 World Series — and even the most casual baseball buff wouldn't need a second guess as to Alston's starting pitcher —Sandy Koufax. It's just the way the pitch ing rotation works out," Alston said, almost apologetically. Koufax humiliated the Yankee sluggers last fall, striking out 23 in posting World Series victories in the first and fourth games over the American League champions. Of course, today's game is only an exhibition, but the Yankees don't figure to do much better against the 25-game winner, who is off to his best spring training start in history. Little Al Downing will oppose Koufax on the mound for Manager Yogi Berra's forces, who have looked like anytliing but champions this spring. New York lost its fiftii game in nine exhibitions, 11-1, to the Milwaukee Braves, Friday. Hank Aaron blasted two home runs and his brother Tommy and Frank Boiling also collected round trippers for the Braves. The Dodgers dropped their first game of the spring Friday night at Miami, bowing to the Baltimore Orioles, 4-3, in 13 innings. Joe Pignatano, who isn't even on the Orioles' major league roster, smgled in Uic winning run. Steve Barber shut out the Dodgers on three hits through the first five innings. In other exhibition games Fri day. the Philadelphia Phillies Clayb at Madison Garden NEW YORK (UPI)-Cassius Clay's latest difficulties with the Army and Madison Square Garden reveal that, although he may be the "purtiest" and loudest of heavyweight champ ions, he is starting off as the most unpopular. Cassius, or "Muhammed Ali as he now calls himself, was booed as thunderously as 2,200 fans could boo him when he and his entourage walked out of the Garden Friday night, after the champ had refused to be introduced as Clay" from the ring. That was a dismal puncuta Uon to a day during which the Army officially rejected the 22- year-old world champion as "not qualified" for military service. He had twice failed to pass the mental aptitude tests given in^ ductees. Of course, poor Cassjus got off to an unheroic beginning as champion when he won .the title at Miami Beach last Feb. 25 with ancient Sonny Listen still sitting apparently un harmed on his ring stool as the bell sounded the beginning of the seventh round. Cassius went to the Garden where his friend, former welterweight champion Luis Rodriguez of Miami Beach, out pointed HoUey Mims of Washington, D.C. Cassius and Rod rigucz are groomed by the same trainer, Angelo Dundee of Jliami Beach. The booers tuned up vben Cassius and party entered and occupied seats about 20 rows from the ringside. ApparenUy they were saving their voices for the grand moment when the world heavyweight champion would be introduced from the ring to the Garden fans and the millions watching on home television. But that climactic moment never came. Promoter Harrj- Markson refused to permit the, champ to be presented under his new Black Muslim monick er "Muhammed Ali." Markson explained at the time, "I cannot permit Clay's introduction under any name other than the one that's on his license at the State Athletic Commission office — Cassius Clay. The commissioner would hold me responsible if I allowed it." In the Garden, Cassius insisted: "I'll be intiroduced as Redlonds Daily fatfs Safarrfay, Mir. 21, \iU ^7 UCLA meets Duke for national title KANS.4S CITY, Mo. (UPD- UCLA's quick, deft Bruins, only the fourth team in history to carry an untarnished record into the NCAA basketbaU championship finals, must conquer Duke's talented inside-outside power tonight to become the third undefeated national champion. UCXA ran its victory string to 29 in a row with a rallying 90-84 victory over Kansas State in Friday night's western Cassius! semifinals after Duke's Blue Devils had used the inside-outside tandem of Jay Buckley and Jeff Mullins for a 91-80 defeat of Michigan for the eastern title and 26-4 season record. UCLA and Duke meet in the tiUe game at 7 p.m. PST. while Michigan and Kansas State play for third place at 5 p.m. PST. If Coach John Woodcn's Big Six Conference champions over come their recent tendency to blow leads and defend their No. 1 season ranking, they will post the second best UUe rec ord in history.

Ohio State made it to the finals undefeated in 1961 here, but bowed to champion CincianatL Wooden wasn't completely saUsified with his team's per formarice. The team played much like it has lately—not too well but with a lot of courage," he commented after blowing two seven-point, first-half leads to trail by as much as six pomts at 69-63 in the last half. 'It seems we can't stand prosperity," be said. "We get a lead and let the opponents catch up. We got ourselves in a spot agam, but we stuck in there.. .and all I ask is one more time." But Wooden was also proud of the fact this team won, despite the "bad night" suffered by "one of our very best players. Jack Hirsch." Pick* Up Slack Unsung Keith Erickson, a 6-5 junior forward with a normal lO-point average, picked up the slack mth a 28-point night to go with All - America guard Walt Hazzard's 19 points. i K-State Coach Tex Winter, who got 29 and 24-point performances from Willie Murrell and Jeff Simons.'^blamed • three - minute drought during which UCXA outscored his Wildcats 11-0 to. erase a 75-70 K-State lead and turn it into a 81-75 UCLA lead with just 4:25 left. "We had our golden opportunity, but wc couldn't bit," he said.

Michigan's sophomore flash, Cazzie Russell, won opening night scoring honors with a 31- point output, but the Big Ten co-champions were on the short end of offensive rebounds 19-11 and committed 20 errors to Duke's 10. Even with Bill Buntin posting 19 points, that was too much of a margin to overcome. 37 special deer tiunts recommended there'^ Mets lose huricr ST. PETERSBURG, Fla (UPI)—New York Mets right­ hander Craig Anderson will be lost to the team for approximately one month with a fractured right hand it was learned Friday. -Anderson, who recorded an 0-2 record with the Mets last season, was struck on the band by an Ed Rakow pitch HUTS- day viliile attempting to Inmt in an exhibition game against Detroit blanked the Houston Colts, 5-0; Cincinnati topped Detroit, 8-6; St Louis defeated the New York Mets, 4-1; Kansas City stopped Washington, 7-4; San Francisco shelled the Los Angeles Angels, 11-3; and the Cleveland Indians whipped the Chicago Cubs, S-1. The Chicago White Sox-PitUburgh Pirates game at Fort Myers, Fla., was cancelled because of wet grounds. The Giants had a field day at the expense of the Angels Friday — they bombed Danny Rivas for 10 runs in the fifth inning—and they pinch hit for WUie Mays. His sub, WiUie McCovey, who s hitting .527, singled. Chuck Hiller, hitting .433, homered for the Giants. Allen,' a 22-year-old slugger vrim led the International League in home runs and runs batted in last season, poled his fourth homer of the spring Fri day. Allen played the outfield for Arkansas last year but the Phils are counting on him to hold down third base this season. He has driven in 15 runs m seven games — almost half of Philadelphia's JotaL The Reds rallied for three runs in the ninth inning off los ing pitcher Dave Wickersbam to snap a 5-5 tie. Marty Ke ough's two-run homer was the big blow. Jim O'Toole, in relief of Jim Maloney notched the victory. Carl Warwick's two-run pinch triple in the fifth inning broke i up a scoreless tie and helped the Cardinals to a 4-1 victory over the Mets. Curt Simmons was the winner and Al Jackson the loser. The Atiiletics picked up their irst exhibition triumph in sue games with a four-run first n- nng. Jim (Mudcat) Grant shut out the Cubs for six innings in the Cleveland victory.

A friend of Markson's re marked later: "I'm certainly glad Harry used good judg ment about that Muhammed AU introduction. He probably prevented a riot." Muhammed Ali is Clay's sec ond "Islamic" name since he admitted belongmg to the Black Muslims two days after winningj Liston's crown. At that time, he announced: "From now on I'll be known as 'Cassius X.'" At that time Cassius had great" admiration for a radical Muslim leader, Malcom X, who since then has split off from the main Muslim organization and formed a splinter group of his. own. When Cassius was asked last night if the army had notified him of his rejection, he said, "They notified my father and mother in Louisville, and my mother phoned me here in New! York." The army's announcement that it's new system of de tectmg when a man is "malingering" on an aptitude exami nation definitely showed that Clay had done the best he could, the army announced. Concerning his future ring plans, the champion said, "I'd Uke to have a tiUe fight this summer—with Liston or any other challenger—if the price is right and if I get paid enough money."

SACRAMENTO (UPI) — The state Fish and Game Depart ment. notmg an upswing in deer populations, his recommended 37 special antlerless or either- sex busts for 1964. The number was the same as recommended by the department last year, but seven more than actually were approved by the commissioD. The department Friday suggested permits be issued for 14, 515 deer, down 1,565 from its proposal last year, but 6,090 more than the commission finally approved. Hunters actually bagged 3,636 deer in special 1963 hunts. "Improved precipitation in 1963 and 1963 has been reflected in better forage conditions over most of the state," the department said. "And with increased forage growth, the herds have responded by showing better production and survival." But because bucks normally take about two years to mature into legal game, the department noted, "the increased population of deer has only just begun to show up in the hunter's bag." In its annual deer status report, the department said "the 1964 buck fake is expected to be greater than 1963." It noted 56,814 bucks were killed in 1963, up 1,905 over 1962. It also pointed out that deer declined during the drought years of 195961. The department's recommend ations will be presented to thej commission at its April 3 meeting in Sacramento, at which time other proposed 1964 hunt ing regulations will be submit ted. The commission, which will hoW hearings in each county where a special hunt is pro posed, will adopt regulations at its June 28 meeting. The department's recommendations included special hunts for some areas that did not have them last year. These were in Ventura, Riverside, Tulare, Madera, Mono and Monterey Coun- Didn't play too well Wooden says Bruins can't stand prosperity KANSAS CITY. Mo. (UPIV- UCLA CaacU John Wooden said his undefeated Bruins "played about like we've been playing lately—not too well" in rallying to beat Kansas State 90-84 and gain the NCAA championship basketball finals against Duke. 'We just can't seem to stand prosperity," Wooden said, referring to bis team's losing a first- half advantage and trailmg Kansas State by a» much as five pomts in the second half. Wooden said he really couldn't point out anything "specific" as a turning point for his team, but Kansas State coach Tex Winter had a ready answer. "The key part of the ball game when we blew a 75-70 lead into a 75-79 deficit." Winter said. "We got several good shots but they just didn't go down during this stretch," he said in. retrospect "M we could have hit two or three there, it would have been different." Winter also revealed that his 7-foot center, Roger Suttner, had been running a fever and his only workout this week had been Thursday night Duke earned its spot in the semi-finals double-header with a 91-80 victory over Michigan.

(UPI)— The Pittsburgh Pirates are per fectly willing to forgive and forget — forgive some if their newcomers for not coming through immediately and forget all about last year. Pittsburgh tumbled all Uie way to eighth place last sea son in the first year of its rebuilding program, only because a number of players counted upon to come through fell short of the mark. It was quite a comedown from the Pirate glory days ofl 1960, when they won the Nation-! al League pennant and went on to take the World Scries from Uie New York Yankees. The Pirate fortunes ebbed after that, so finally after the 1962 season, when Pittsburgh finished fourth, they made their big move. It turned out to be disastrous. The Pirates disposed of three fourths of their 1960 championship infisld. Donn dendenon at first base was a disappointment as a fill-in for Dick Stuart, who went to the Boston Bed Sox and wound up win ning the runs batted in championship of the American League with 118; Dick Schofield was below expectations in taking over for shortstop Dick Groat who had an outstanding year for the St Louis Cardinals; and rookie third baseman Bob Bailey was anything but the secsaUon he was tagged to be when the Pirates let Don Hoak go to the Philadelphia Phillies. Others Fell Short There were a number of others who didn't perform up[ to the. standard anticipated for them. "But that's all over," insists Manager Danfly Murtaugh. "This is a new season and we all realize we have a let of catching up to do for last year. "And we're out to do it with the same players. We may not be good enough to rank in the contending class, but we are good enough to make amends for our 1963 showing.' Murtaugh still thinks Bailey Obispo. 400.

That takes care of three fourths of the Pirate infield. The other fourth is in very capable hands — second baseman Bill Mazeroski. Murtaugh will have in his outfield veterans Roberto Clemente in right and Bill Virdon m center with Willie StargeU. another 1963 disappointment in left "StargeU is going to get every opportunity to be our regular left fieUer and I think he will make it and hit from 23 to 33 home runs for us." Murtaugh contends. Try Others Also But then he let one cat out of the bag—he said he also was going to give his three third base candidates. Bailey, Gene Freeze and Gene Alley a shot at left field. Murtaugh admits catching could be a problem. He plans using the aging Smoky Burgess in "only one or two games a week" so we can have his big left handed bat on the bench." That leaves the No. i job open to another 1963 let-down. Jim Pagliaroni. part of the Red Sox payment for Stuart Behind them, fighting for the third job, are Ron Brand. Orlando McFarlane and Ehno Flasket It falls far short of bemg an all-star catching trio. Says Pitching Set When it comes to pitching, Murtaugh's face h'ghts up. 'The only thing we might need." he said, emphasizing might," "is a left handed relief pitcher. "We have outstanding pitching depth." he claims. "A lot of things killed us last year but pitching wasn't one of them." For starters there are left banders Bob Veale (5-2) and Joe Gibbon (5-12) and right banders Bob Friend (17-16). Don Cardwell (13-15) and Don Schwall (6-12). lattle Roy Face (3-9), a rightly and Al McBean (13-3) a lef^, head the bullpen corps. "There are seven might good pitchers," Murtaugh claims. He isn't counting on the veteran right bander. Van Law, who was 2-0 last season, but hasn't been effective since arm trouble caught up with him after winning 20 games in 1960.
