Nicklaus Retains World Series Golf Crown Comes Through With Key Shots In Vital Spots AKRON, Ohio (AP)—Tired, weary and upset, Jack Nicklaus, the Masters and PGA champion, still had enough steam left Sunday to turn back an Arnold Palmer challenge and repeat for the top prize of $50,000 in the $75,000 World Series of Golf. The 23-year-old Buckeye belter from Columbus, Ohio, several times blew sizeable leads in the two- day playoff but came up with the necessary shots on crucial holes. Tom Jacobs Wins 1st in Utah Open SALT LAKE CITY (UPD — His fellow pros aren't kidding when they call young Tommy Jacobs one of the coolest and calmest performers on the tour. Jacobs, the curly-haired 28- old professional from Bermuda Dunes, Calif., displayed both characteristics Sunday when lie won the $40,000 Utah Open in a I •< -• » KCH finish at the Salt Lake Country Club course. The up-and-down Southern Californian survived a shaky finish on the last two holes to win by one stroke over lean Don January. Jacobs three-putted the 17th hole for a bogey and double-bogeyed the final hole but still won when January could get no better than a par four on the 18th. Young Jacobs, who had gone without a victory since the San Diego Open in 1962, finished with a final-round par 70 for a 72-hole total of 272. His win was worth $6,400 and boosted his earnings this year to $19,818 as the touring pros headed for the next stop at Seattle. January, a tall Texan who was the second round leader, had a final 68 and wound up with 273. Next came Gary Player, the spunky little South African, who had a par 70 and 275 total. January collected $3,600 and Player, who has picked up earnings in 21 tournaments he entered thrs year, pocketed $2,500. Whitworth In Victory At Spokane SPOKANE, Wash. (UPD Kathy Whitworth must be the biggest thing that's happened to Jal, N. M., since the United States took it away from Mexico 'way back. The 23-year-old swinger from the little Southwest community fired a 73 for a 210 to win the Spokane Women's Open Golf tournament Sunday. It was her fifth victory on the ladies' tour this year. The victory, in which Kathy picked up $1,250, was revenge, of sort, for the winsome brunette. She o u t s h o t fairways queen Mickey Wright, who won the crown last year when Miss Whitworth had to settle for the bridesmaid role. Marilynn Smith, who was deadlocked with Miss Wright four strokes behind Miss Whitworlh going into the final round, posted a 71 for runnerup honors at 212. Miss Wright matched Kathy's 73 for a final 214 to tie with j Gloria Armstrong, who had a 72, for third place. They were followed by Clifford Ann Creed, who had 215, and Sandra McClinton, Ruth Jessen and Betsy Rawls, all at 216. "The 13th hole was the big difference," said Nicklaus after pocketing his second World Series check along with a solid gold belt buckle. "I hadn't hit a fairway since the sixth hole and was starting to worry." Palmer, who had been as much as five strokes behind, pulled even with Nicklaus after the 12th and then put his drive into the right rough, ran into tree trouble and took a double bogey six to fall three strokes behind Nicklaus who put his second shot on the green and then one-putted from 12 feet for his final birdie. Jack settled down to par golf the rest of the way and kept ahead of U.S. Open champion Julius Boros who birdied four of the last six holes for a closing 69 and a 141 total to finish one stroke behind Nicklaus and pick up second- place money of $15,000. Palmer was third with a 72 and 143 total and New Zealand left­ hander Bob Charles, who went into the second round tied for first with Nicklaus, had a 77 for a 147. Palmer and Charles each picked up $5,000. "I didn't get much sleep," said Nicklaus, "maybe three hours. I was still upset over what happened Saturday." Nicklaus had a run in with two reporters who had taken certain remarks Nicklaus insists he made in jest and turned them into a serious story in which Nicklaus had said Palmer was an "also ran" and "didn't belong in the playoff of champions." Nicklaus made the remarks in Palmer's presence and both had laughed them off. Palmer, still bothered by availing shoulder which he said is getting better, will go to California to finish filming a golf series and then will try to rest until the $125,000 Whitemarsh Open in Philadelphia.

BEN JOHNSON Phc -M 7 -MQ8 Cambridge Ralph Dupas Loses Crown to Mazzinghi MILAN, Italy (AP) - There were plenty of loud and angry cries from Ralph Dupas* corner but little comment today from Sandro Mazzinghi of Italy, the new world junior middleweight boxing champion. Mazzinghi dethroned the New Orleans veteran Saturday night when he stopped Dupas in the ninth round. The Italian was in command almost all the way and in the ninth floored Dupas with a right. Dupas tried to get up at the count of seven but wobbled around instead and the referee called a halt to the bout. Mazzinghi was non-committal about a possible rematch, but there was plenty of yelping from Dupas and his official family. By NORMAN MILLER UPI Sports Writer Babe Parilli and Tobin Rote, who battled one another for a job 10 years ago, are proving to the American Football League that life begins in the mid-30's for a brainy old quarterback.

And Parilli, who is 33 and making a comeback from a broken collarbone last season, was equally brilliant in guiding the Boston Patriots to a 38-14 win over the New York Jets. Parilli was Rote's understudy with the Green Bay Packers back in 1953. Another quarterback who was ailing last season, Tom Flores of the Oakland Raiders, helped produce the biggest upset of the AFL's opening weekend on Saturday night when he came off the bench in the third period and sparked a 24-13 victory over the Houston Oilers. Just as big a surprise from the standpoint of the score was the 59-7 rout of the Denver Broncos by the Kansas City Chiefs, the transplanted league champions. Two of the AFL's glamor-boys were knocked out of action on the opening weekend. Fullback Cookie Gilchrist of the Bills, 1962 AFL player of the year, aggravated previous rib and ankle injuries at San Diego, while halfback Billy Cannon of the Oilers injured his ankle Saturday night against Oakland. And speaking of casualties, halfback Paul Lowe of the Chargers, who missed nearly the entire 1962 season because of a broken arm, showed all his old running speed in the victory over the Bills before a crowd of 22,344 at San Diego. Rote set up the Chargers' first touchdown with three passes that covered 70 yards, and with San Diego leading only 7-3 in the third period, Lowe took a pitchout and raced 48 yards for another TD. Rote completed 18 of 30 passes for 260 yards. Parilli ran 10 yards for one touchdown, passed 33 yards to rookie Art Graham for another, and set up two more scores with his tosses in Boston's home-opening victory over New York before 24,120 fans. Champions Battle in US Amateur DES MOINES, Iowa (UPI) — Champions from club, county and country tee off today on Wa konda's tough 6,896-yard course in search of one of the nation's most prized golf titles, the National Amateur championship. By MIKE RAT MET Associated Press Sports Writer There's no doubt we've been here before. The Los Angeles Dodgers are struggling to hang on to a vanishing National League lead, and Warren Spahn has won his 20th game. The Dodgers' once-commanding lead was trimmed to 3Ms games Sunday as Orlando Cepeda belted a three-run seventh Inning homer that carried San Francis™ to a 5-4 victory and sent sagging Los Angeles down to its third defeat in the last five games. Meanwhile, the second-place St. Louis Cardinals, who were seven games behind on Aug. 30, contin­ ued their amazing surge by edging Pittsburgh 3-2 for their 11th victory in 12 games. The Dodgers have 19 games remaining, the Cardinals 18—Including a vital three-games series with Los Angeles at St. Louis starting next Monday. The remainder of the schedule seems to favor St. Louis, which has to play only four games on the road to the Dodgers' 10. While the spotlight was focused on the Dodgers and Cardina's. Spahn grabbed a share of the glare by becoming a 20-game win ner for the 13th time.

Consistent ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (UPI) —Jockey John Sellers rode eight consecutive winners two years ago when he won the last three races at Atlantic City Race Course on Oct. 3, 1961 and started off the next day with the first five winners. There was no favorite among the 200 starters for the six-day battle with the wooded, thickly roughed links. The course's par 72 defied the presumed best of three nations, the United States, Canada and Mexico, in Americas Cup competition last week. Three former amateur kings are included, defending champion Labron Harris, 21, 1960 U. S. winner and 1959 British Amateur champion Deane Beman, 25 and Charlie Coe, 39, who triumphed in 1949 and 1958. But there's also the 1962 British titleholder, Richard Davies; the current national collegiate and former national public links champion, Dick Sikes; national senior champion Merrill Carlsmith; the national junior champion, 16-year-old Gree McHatton; the Mexican champion, Juan Estrada, and the national publinx titleholder, Robert Lunn. Numerous other "name" players were in the field, including Billy Joe Patton, Charles Kocsis, Dr. Ed Updegraff, Downing Gary, Steve Opperman, and a former Canadian champion, Gary Cowan.

"I can't settle for 12 or 13 wins. There are too many, young guys on this ball club who can do that, and they don't have to pay me my money for that kind of, a performance.

They lead the moderns, each with 13 seasons in which they won 20 games. The all-time mark is 16, by Cy Young, beginning in 1891. But the slim Braves' southpaw has the left -handed league wrapped up with the most victories by southpaws (347), the most innings pitched (4,842), most strikeouts (2,398) and most 20-victory seasons. He has 60 shoutouts, four less than Eddie Plank's all-time mark for southpaws. "Physically, there are a lot of things I used to be able to do that I can't do now," Spahn said. "But I think I'm a better pitcher now than when I was younger. Experience? Sure. And now I the the think more positively. I don't worry about walking anyone. "Why? Because I can throw strikes. I can get my breaking ball and my fast ball over the plate. No batter can say I'm gonna get this pitch.' A walk doesn't worry me. I'm more positive.
