The Warriors, Hope Golf Team Loses Close One By RALPH ROUTON Star Sportswriter A close defeat is a bitter pill to take, but the Hope High School golf team experienced a narrow 9"/2 '%/2 loss to Camden yesterday on the Camden Country Club course. The points were tight throughout the match, right down to the final hole. It was the second straight loss for the team, which now has a 1-3 record, but the link- sters get a chance this afternoon against Arkadelphia for their first conference victory. Medalist for the match was Ralph Routon with an 81, followed closely by Danny Reyenga's 84. Terry Hairr and Mike Mattox also played in the match, and Mattox beat his opponent in his first day to take part this year. Routon and Reyenga earned 4 points while Ted Gammill and Arils Palmer of Camden picked up 5, and Hairr and Mattox halved with John Scott and Dan Fenwick of Camden 4 ! /2 - 4V 2 .

(AP) - Ailing Jim Lonborg's recu* peration is right on schedule in 14s determined bid to be back pitching for the Boston Red Sox by May 15, the Hawks in regular season play, blew one chance Sunday to eliminate the Hawks, but still hold a 3-2 lead. The winner of that series will oppose Los Angeles, which won its semifinal against Chicago Sunday night. Everyone expected the 76ers and Celtics to clash again, but there were some doubts when the upstart Knicks and Pistons held their own early and stood 2-2 in games. Then age—and talent—began to come across. ., "From my experience, the olden veterans, tried and true, are the ones that perform best in the crucial games," said 76er Coach Alex Hannum after watching nine-year veteran Wilt Chamberlain and 10-year veteran Hal Greer take apart the Knicks in the second half Monday night. "Wilt was sick as a dog the other day and Greer had a bad foot, but when it camo right to it, they were ready," said Hannum. Greer hammered home 35 points, including 22 in the second half when the 76ers blew open a tight contest. He had 13 in the third quarter which began with Philadelphia behind 57-56 and ended with the 76ers ahead 86-76. Wilt dominated the middle in the final half, blocking shots and grabbing rebounds, and finished wilh 25 points and 27 rebounds. The Knicks, as in earlier games, jumped to a big early lead, 17-4 and 31-17, but in the end, their own pressing defense wore them down in only their second playoff appearance in nine years, "They put pressure on the guards, the same way Boston does, but the Celtics are in >re lonborg, who plays 27 holes of successful because they have golf dally, gets in plenty of swimming and works with weights as part of his rehabilitation, plans to throw from the mound Wednesday for the first tiroe this spring.

A few days later, the Orioles' plane lost an engine on the way to an exhibition game in Sarasota. Then Jim Palmer's pitching shoulder went lame—and Manager Bauer's suntan began to fade. When spring training began, it was generally agreed that if the Orioles remained healthy they would be back in the thick of the 1968 American League race after a nightmarish fall. Everything happened to Baltimore in 1967—and none of it was good. Palmer, Dave McNally and Wally Bunker, who each had pitched a World Series shutout over Los Angeles in 1966, were shelved by-sore arms. Triple Crown winner Robinson suffered a concussion in a baseline collision, sat out a month and played the last two with double vision. Boog Powell, winner of the AL Comeback of the Year award the previous year, toppled from a .287 average, 34 home runs anl 109 runs batted in to .234,13 homers and 55 RBI. The Orioles crawled home in a sixth place tie with Washington, ISVa games off the pace. But their troubles weren't over. Center fielder Paul Blair, the league's No. 5 hitter, went to Puerto Rico to play winter ball — and broke his ankle. Bauer, beginning his fifth year as the Orioles' pilot, carm- to camp with fingers crossed. The three sore-armed pitchers were throwing without piln, Robinson's vision was normal, Powell was determined and Blair was Itching to play after bouncing back from an operation. The Orioles, still young and strengthened during the winter- by a multi-player trade with Chicago, could go all the way if Palmer's arm trouble isn't serious or contagious — and if Powell bounces back to help Frank Robinson and Brooks Robinson carry the offensive load. The lineup probably will be the same as last year, with the exception of shortstop, where slick-fielding; Mark Belanger for Says Russia Will Win Olympics By WAYNE FALIGOWSKI '•••• Albany Democrat-Herald Written for Associated Press ALBANY, Ore. (AP) - Dyrol Burleson hopes to make the American Olympic team this year for the third time but he says, "we'll lose, with the Russians again dominating the games." "In the track and field portion of it we'll probably score well," he said. "But the Russians concentrate on sports that are held in the Olympics. They don't play football or baseball, something the U.S. would surely dominate if such sports were held. As for the Russian athlete himself, an athlete is an athlete." Burleson, now 27, ran his first mile under four minutes in 1960 at Eugene, Ore., when he was a sophomore at the University of Oregon. Burleson has gone under 4 minutes 12 times. He ran sixth in the 1,500 meters in Rome and Fifth in the Tokyo Olympics four years ago. Burleson says that on the threatened Negro boycott of the Olympics, "I have to sympathize somewhat with them. Bu l . Bob Hayes (world record sprinter and pro football player) put it quite nicely when he said that athletics have given Negroes an opportunity to excel. They have gotten economic benefits ... the decision to boycott the games should be an individual judgment alone." ou'field jobs. But Frank Robin- so.i, .311, and Blair, .293, are established in right and center while Curt Blefary, .242, figures to be back in left. Andy Etchebarren, .215, likely will handle most of the catching. Baltimore pitchers had many problem.-; in 1967. One of them, according to Bauer, was nonsupport. "We lost 33 one-run games aul a total of 56 by one and two runs," he said. Tom Phoebus, 14-9, Jim Hardin, 8-3, and Howard, 3-10 with Chicago, are starting candidates along with Palmer, McNally and Bunker. Pole Richert, 9-10, moves to the bullpen, joining Geae Brabender, Moe Drabow- sky, Eddie Watt and Stu Miller. Richert and Brabender an- available as starteis if some oi the other arms don't hold up. Belanger's glove will help at shortstop but his bitting potential is suspect. "I don't know how niu.ii he'll hit, but that's beside the point," Bauer said. "He's not going to carry the team. If the Robinsons don't hit and Powell and Blefary don't eitht-i, we're 30:11.. anyway."

Derby TORONTO (AP) - Annabelle announced her decision to run in the Kentucky Derby Monday. Annabelle is a 3-year-old filly, whose ears join her head at right-angles and whose owners are newspaper men Paul Rim- stead and Fred Ross. They fell in love with her at a horse sale a year ago and scraped together the $1,100 asking price, From then on, what happened to Annabelle shouldn't happen to a dog, Rirnstead and Ross formed a jazz band to follow her around; they enlisted the services of wrestler Sweet Daddy Siki as a bodyguard; entertainers wrote songs about her; she was the subject of a coming-out party. Monday night they threw a press reception at a ritzy Hotel to announce her entry into the Derby, to serve mint juleps and, incidentally, to sell shares. Trainer Jim Santha fielded questions about his wonder horse, "She's eating well, about 10 to 12 quarts of oats a day. She is in fine shape, resting wo 11. In iact, eating and resting is what she does best. "She lias never run the rnil-e anJ a quarter before," S'antha said, hedging on her workouts.

Entries Pour in for 72nd Boston Meet BOSTON (AP) - Entries are pouring in for the 72nd annual Boston A.A. Mnrathon April 19. But race officials are disturbed by the AAU action in scheduling an Olympic trial in San Francisco just two days after the Patriot's Day Hopkinton-to-Bo ;ton run. "At best the decision was inconsiderate; at worst, a deliberate effort to scuttle Eastern prominence in long distance running," BAA President Will Cloiiey told a news conference Monday, "The Boston race is famous the world over and is the oldest outside of the Olympic Marathon itself," Cloiiey said. "Scheduling a tryout on Hut late (April 21) on the Coast robs a few Western rmuiers of the chance to compete in a race that carries tremfndous prestige." Cionev. who also directs the annual BAA indjor track meet, which like the Marathon is sanctioned by the AAU, also was disturbed that the AAU long distance running committee ignored the Boston run a--, a trial for the Olympics.
