(NEA) The pole vault is an engineered sports test that compromises the personalities of people such as Dave Roberts. Now Dave is a clean-cut college seniors out of Rice University who was raised in the nice little conservative town of Conroe, Tex., hard by Cut and Shoot. His daddy raises quarter horses in the thicket country north of Houston. There people live sedately and believe in the virtues of hard work and religion. Pole vaulters, - however, arc off on their own esoteric kick. Dave Roberts of Conroe happens to be one of the best vaulters in the world, a man who confidently believes he may be the one ultimately to crack the 19-foot barrier. Why does one devote his Brimfield Is Beaten 25-4 By Scrappers Mr. Steak Scrappers came up with a big offensive output and defeated Brimfied 25-4 at 0. N. Custer Park Sunday. The Scrappers totaled 34 base hits in 50 official trips to the plate to get the 25 runs. Brimfield had only eight hits in 30 times at bat. Rita Wymer and Dee Dee Asher of the Scrappers both knocked out five hits. Ann Thompson, Ruth Mackey, Sheryl Shields and Nettie Brooks all contributed four hits, and Kathy Shea and Lieca Kirkenmeyer got three each. ^]esburgJRegistei > *Mail / Galesbufg, III, Tuesday, June 1 % 1973. J S Can H Keep Feet on Ground young adulthood to scampering down a runway, fiberglass stick in hands, planting the pole and then as it bends from the centrifugal force, literally rocketing over a cross bar at perilous heights. "Pole vaulters," confessed Dave during his exercises for the fifth annual Kennedy Game3 at the University of California, "all have a screw loose. They dive off mountain cliffs." It is true that when the pole vaulting contingent which would represent the United States in the Olympic Games trained on the Maine coast last summer, the vaulters did "Perils of Pauline" routines — flips and full gainers while soaring off precipices into the ocean. "I like to dive off cliffs myself," says Roberts, a mild- talking young man of 22. "It's safer sometimes than vaulting." Twice after ascents with a pole, he has completely missed the pit, which is filled with foam chips to cushion an 18-foot fall in which a guy might land plumb on his back. Once he bruised a heel. The other time he landed on his right shoulder and didn't feel a thing — i soreness set in three days later Since Dave also intends to be a doctor some day, in ortho pedics, if he can get accepted to a medical school, the motivation for pole vaulting is all the more puzzling. "It's kind of an elation," he explains, "to feel the pole recoil in your hands and find yourself shooting through the air." Dave first sensed the joy when he was in the sixth grade and out in the backyard he and some other kids were high jumping over a makeshift bar.

Winning pitcher was Hinchliff's Jim Smith, and Don Horkstrom took the loss. Jim Young and John Patterson each batted out two base hits for the winners.

By the time he was graduated from high school, he had cleared 15-feet-8 and had gained a track scholarship from Rice, where "jocks are at the bottom of the pole." In his part of Texas, the normal kid with athletic talent gravitates to football. Not Dave, who is built like a wide receiver at 6-2 and 175. "I never liked the sport," he says. "I'm too independent-minded to take orders as part of a team." He has twice been the NCAA pole vault champion, won the 1972 AAU title and was the first collegian to clear 18 feet, last summer In Seattle. "I have a feeling," he says candidly, "that I can jump a lot higher than anybody's ever jumped." That's because he maintains he understands the! Eric Benge Has No-Hitter In LL Game Eric Benge of the White Sox pitched a no-hit shutout against the Yankees for a 9-0 win in the second game of Little League play at 0. N. Custer Park Monday night. In the opener, National League-leading Cubs came from behind to nip the Giants 12-11. A run in the bottom of the seventh inning gave the Cubs the victory in the opener. Troy Hamilton was credited with the win, and Tom Southwell got the loss. Oianli physics of the event better than his contemporaries such as Bob Seagren (the world record holder at 18-feet-5%") and Steve Smith, who rely on their natural abilties to whip over a cross bar. "It's easy to use a pole as a rubber band," he adds. "Nobody is using the fiberglass pole to the utmost advantage." The world class vaulting fraternity is exclusive. Besides Seagren, who is now a pro, there are Roberts, Kjell Isaksson of Sweden, Jan Johnson and Wolfgang Nordwig of East Germany, the Olympic champ. Also Smith, an effusive, extroverted type who is Roberts' nemesis and currently the hottest vaulter in the world. "To me," says Roberts, "vaulting's an art, to get the maximum out of what you have. Smith's approach is the exact opposite of mine." '•' Smith is a hot dog who relates to the crowd and the-excitement and leaves the 'deeper meaning to Roberts. He also has generally beaten Roberts, whose one big crushing failure was not making the OJympic team. "Still," Dave rationalizes, "I'm satisfied with what I've done. Until the Olympics, vaulting was the only thing in my life. Now I realize there" are other things." It is why, despite fe rise of professional track, he <will not jump for money. "I don't want to have to jump," he says. "It's simply a hobby to me." £j Like, for instance, diving off cliffs. (Newspaper Enterprise Assn.)

(UPI) - The money is one thing, the prestige is another, and then there is something else far more important than both which Tom Weiskopf finally is beginning to receive ... maybe a little too late. They don't even have a label for what Tom Weiskopf is getting here for the first time at the Oakmont Country Club where the U.S. Open begins this Thursday. Perhaps it can best be described as some special little deference or extra bit of regard being shown him by his fellow playing pros. In the past, only titans like Jack Nicklaus, Lee Trevino and Arnold Palmer have been shown it. To be sure, the pros always felt Weiskopf had the ability and was a good golfer, but now they are starting to wonder if he's about ready to assume his place among the great ones. Outside of Secretariat, who doesn't really count because he's a horse, no one has been any hotter than Tom Weiskopf these past few weeks. Back-to-Back Victories He won the Colonial Invitation a month ago at Fort Worth, finished second in the Atlanta Classic two weeks later and comes up to this one with back-to-back victories in the Kemper Open and Philadelphia Classic. The tall, straight-backed 30- year-old Weiskopf, customarily referred to as "that other golfer from Columbus, Ohio" until now, has won $117,145 in his last four tournaments and stands third on this year's money list with a $151,867 tola!.

Chi Chi Rodriguez. "He used to be immature. No more. He has grown up." Art Wall puts it another way "I'll tell you one thing about him," says Wall. "It sure looks like he has his mind on what he's doing now." He'll Buy That Tom Weiskopf buys that. He turned pro nine years ago, and he has made a nice living on the tour in that time, but he didn't actually get with it, at least not in his own mind, until this past March 14. That was the day his father died, and that also could have been the day Tom Weiskopf's entire thinking changed. Sitting in front of his locker before going out to play a few holes for the first time ever here at Oakmont, he spoke about his father Monday. "His name was Tom, the same as mine, he had cancer for a year, and we knew he was going, to die," said Weiskopf. lived for my golf.

The Biggest Booster "He was Tom Weiskopf's biggest booster," said his son, softly, evenly, without any change in his voice. "He'd read the sports page every morning and live and die with what I did, but I felt I let him down a little bit. I never really felt I proved my capabilities in front of him. Oh sure, he'd see me on TV, but this past year it was hard for him to get around so he couldn't come see me play. "He always told me 'you don't practice enough-' He'd say 'Tom, if you'd just practice little bit more, you'd be that much better.' He wasn't critical or anything like that, but you know how it is, he was like any other father. He just believed Tom Weiskopf was the best golfer out there." As Tom Weiskopf talked about his father Monday, some Dave," replied an- "He was 60 years old, and he of his fellow golfers walked by Dave Hill. "Thank you Weiskopf. Then Bruce Crampton h pened to pass. "Well done," he called out. "Thank you, Bruce," swered Weiskopf. One of the younger pros in the field here stopped in front of Weiskopf, looked him up and down, and then simply said: "Wow!" Weiskopf grinned a bit self­ consciously, and shook the guy's hand.. "I've never won a major tournament," said Weiskopf a bit later, "and that's what they judge you on. I think I'm a good player, but a great player is one who wins the major tournaments. I still don't put myself in a class with Nicklaus and Trevino. They've won the major ones. That's the true test." Maybe Tom Weiskopf doesn't know it, but he's passed a greater test already.
