SPORTS Three-Way Fight for CWS Title OMAHA. Neb., (AP)—Southern Illinois Coach Richard ' 'Itchy" Jones likes to talk about the "little things" of baseball. "We like to hit a little, run a little and bunt a little," is one of Jones' favorite—if not pat- tened—quotes about his team. And so it was Thursday night in the 28th College World Series as the Salukis threw the series into a three-way battle by knocking off Miami of Florida 4-3. "This was a typical game for us," said Jones. "We did the little things and didn't make that many mistakes, and it paid off." Southern California, bidding for a fifth straight title, ousted Texas 5-3 to leave the tournament with three teams with single defeats. Southern Illinois, 50-11. will face Southern California, 48-20, Friday night, and the winner goes against Miami. 51-10, Saturday night for the title. The pairings were set by a draw after Southern Illinois' victory, and Miami Coach Ron Fraser picked the envelope that read "bye." "We were a little flat," said Fraser after the Hurricanes' first loss in the double-elimination classic. "But we made more mistakes than Southern. I guess we beat ourselves." The game was tied 3-3 when Southern Illinois scored the go ahead run in the eighth inning on a Miami error. "It was a great college baseball game," offered Jones. "Miami just made one Times Herald, Carroll, la. * Friday, June 14, 1974 O mistake too many and we were fortunate to take advantage." Southern Illinois led 3-0 going to the seventh inning, but Miami tied the game when Orlando Gonzales ripped a three-run home run. "Robin (Derry) hung a slider to Gonzalez, and he knew what to do with it." said Jones. "But maybe we worked him too long. His longest stint of the season was six innings prior to tonight." A single by Dan Herbst, an infield out and an infield hit by Bert Newman and an ensuring throwing error by Miami third baseman Jim Crosta let in what proved to be the winning run. Reliefer Jim Bokelmann allowed only three base runners and one hit after taking over for Derry in the seventh and earned the victory. Southern Illinois' totals were familiar: seven hits and all singles, five stolen bases and only one error. "They (Southern Illinois) came up with some great plays—a couple that took us out of innings," said Fraser. "And we didn't hit that well either." Southern California made the most of four hits and three Texas errors, and then held off two late Longhorn comebacks. The Trojans scored what proved to be the winning runs in the fifth inning with aid of two Texas errors and a passed ball. "We are hurting and reaching down for our pitching," said Southern California Coach Rod Dedeaux. "But we are happy to still be in it, and still think we will make a good accounting." Three of the Trojans' hits figured in the scoring and the winners also took advantage of seven walks and two hit batsmen. Two of Southern California's hits were by Rich Dauer and he drove in one run. They let the senior third basemen tie the NCAA one-season mark for runs batted in at 90 and establish a total bases record of 178. "We'll go with Mark Barr (10-1 and one series victory) and hope for the best," added Comfortable Leads for Tees, Links The Short Tees and the Rinky Links continue to lead in the Men's Thursday Night Golf League at the municipal course. The Short Tees carded a 176 and hold a 13-shot margin over the Flag Blasters in American Division play, 1232 to 1245. The Rinky Links hold a more comfortable lead in the National, 18 shots, after carding a 173 Thursday for a 1256. The Caddie Cleaners are second at 1274. Four players — Bill Evans, Pat Malloy, Steve Heider and Dick Lane — tied for low scratch honors in the American with 36s, while Joe Dalhoff had a 30 for low net. Jim Wilson's 34 was good for low scratch in the National Division and low net went to Daryl Winker with a 29.

DeBower is a junior. MAMARONECK, N.Y. (AP) — "The way they played it," observed a member of the Royal and Ancient Golf Club, the sport's ruling body in Great Britian, "perhaps they should change the name of the course to Clubbed Foot." "Obviously the greens were driving everybody up trees," said Jack Nicklaus. '' A score of 290 (10 over par V could win it," said Arnold Palmer. England's Tony Jacklin made a 10-1 wager with a friend. 1,000 British pounds to 100, that no one in the field will break 280,,par for four rounds. "And this was under ideal conditions—absolutely perfect weather," said Jim Colbert. "Can you imagine what will happen if the weather gets a little bad. Some of us are going to be awfully embarrassed." "There are 18 monsters out there," Gary Player said. Those were some of the printable reactions to the toll taken by the Winged Foot Golf Club on the finest shotmakers in the world in Thursday's first round of the 74th United States Open Golf Championship. It was some of the highest scoring in years, going back Dededaux. "We are due for another good hitting game.'' The Southern Cal-Southern Illinois game will be a rematch. The Trojans won a 5-3 decision in the second round with Barr throwing a five-hitter. Texas, rated No. 1 along with Miami coming to the tournament, finished 54-8. The Longhorns were making their 17th series appearance. Sophomore third baseman Keith Moreland drove in all three Longhorn runs with a home run and a two-run double and leads the series in hitting (.500) and runs batted in (7). The doubleheader crowd of 9,134 boosted attendance for eight session to 56.953. well over a decade. It was the first time since 1958 that a round of par—the 70 by Player—had led the National Open. Of the 150 players in the field, 44 failed to break 80. They included former Open champions Ken Venturi, Billy Casper and Gene Littler, former Masters champion Bob Goalby and Hubert Green, a three-time winner this season. The scores ranged as high as Putting Gives Player Early Open Lead With a 70 MAMARONECK, N.Y. (AP) - The 74th U.S. Open Golf Championship developed today into a putting contest on the ice slick, treacherous greens, and the man with the safecracker touch—Gary Player of South Africa—was tabbed as the burglar likely to take it all. "If you can't chip and putt here, you might as well go home," lamented defending champion Johnny Miller, stunned by an opening round 76. "Player is the finest chipper, putter and sand player on the tour. He could walk away with it." Gary must have been listen- PLAN TO ATTEND- ARMY RESERVE FIELD DAY SUNDAY JUNE 16,1974 10:00 A.M.

The tough little world golfing gypsy from Johannesburg, seeking to add the Open to his Masters crown for the first two legs of an unprecedented professional Grand Slam, stroked W i n g;e d Foot's-, marble-top greens for an even-par 70 and the lead in Thursday's first round. Other leading favorites putted—as old Sam Snead used to say _' 'as if both their blooming arms was broke." Jack Nicklaus. golf's reigning king and 5-1 favorite to stash this 15th major crown in his vault, putted from 25 feet for a birdie on the first hole and left himself a 28-foot putt coming back, for the first of four straight bogeys. "I told myself, 'This is some way to start the Open,'" Jack said afterward. "It took me four holes to regroup." Nicklaus three-putted three of the first four holes, added another three-putt later on, and shot a 75. "In every other way, this is a normal golf course," Nicklaus said. "The tournament is being played on the greens. These are the most severely fast, undulating greens I've ever seen." Miller, who won at Oakmont Pa., last year with a record- closing 63, also shot a 75. Tom Weiskopf, the reigning British Open champion, fired a 76 and said he almost withdrew because of an ailing left wrist. Two-time winner Lee Trevino had a 78. Bill Casper, who won the Open on this same course 15 years ago, skied to an 80 and Hubert Green, the tour's current hotshot, scrambled to an 81. It was a day of frustration and disaster. It marked the first time since 1958 that a player had not broken par in the opening round of this championship. Mike Reasor of Seattle, who shot 135 in one round at Tallahassee, Fla., earlier this year after falling off a horse, and Lou Graham of Nashville, Tenn., were tied for second at 71, one stroke off Player's lead. Jack Nicklaus shot 75. Tom Weiskopf had 76. So did Johnny Miller. Jacklin had 78. Lee Trevino took 78 strokes. Why? Why were the scores so high in this, the most prestigious of all the world's golf championships? "First of all," Miller said, "it's an awfully long course. It plays a lot longer than 6,961 yards. A lot longer." "It's the hardest course I've ever seen—ever," said Colbert. ''The greens are the course," said Nicklaus. "You are scared of even,' putt. They are the fastest greens I've ever seen in an Open."The course, nestled in the gently-rolling hills of suburban New York, features the deep, clinging-rough common to Open courses. The fairways are only 30 yards wide. The traps are numerous, yawning and deeper than those usually encountered on regular tour stops. But it was the glass-slick greens and the pin placements that made the difference. "The course is tough, but fair," said Palmer. Nicklaus had much the same sentiment, despite the fact that he three- putted four times and, on the first hole, had a 25-footer for birdie, then a 28-footer for par. "I'd like to see greens like this every week. You'd have to learn to putt them or get off the tour and go home. They require a touch. If we had a course like this every week you'd see the really good players winning more often."
