By AARON RAND MONTREAL (UPI) - First round leader Hale Irwin, who shot a course record seven- under-par 65 Thursday was not planning to do anything different today in round two of the Canadian Open. But he won't be hoping for a rainout as he was Thursday. Irwin, whose last major tournament win was at the Heritage Golf Classic in 1971, had eight birdies in his record round. He held a two -stroke lead over Forrest Fezler, Hubert Green and British Open Champion Torn Weiskopf, all of whom shot five-under-par 67s. Another stroke back at 68 were Len Thompson, Bob Lunn, Bobby Cole and Lee Trevino, who won the Canadian Open here in 197L Four other golfers were tied at 69. Setting a course record at Richelieu was not what Irwin was thinking about on his way to a 65 but he was obviously pleased with his efforts as long as he can keep them up in the following rounds. I can't complain about the way things went," he said. "It's U. S., Soviet Juniors Vie In Track always nice to set a course record but I don't think it's really any incentive to me to shoot a 64, nor do I think that if someone breaks it will I go out and try to break theirs." Irwin, while playing an aggressive game in the first round, thinks that from here on in the eventual winner will have to play the Richelieu course "cautiously".

Anderson was correct in his appraisal of him. Anderson, the manager of the Cincinnati Reds, called Bonds the "best all-around player in baseball today" at the recent All-Star game and the fleet outfielder of the San Francisco Giants showed off his skills in that classic by hitting a two -run homer end a double while helping the NL Stars to an easy 7 -1 victory over the American League. Returning to regular season action Thursday, Bonds flashed doubleheader sweep of the San Diego Padres. Bonds unloaded a three-run homer, his 26th, to help Ron Bryant to his 15th victory in. the opener then added a two-run shot in the nightcap and also pulled off a defensive gem as the Giants squeaked by in 10 innings. His defensive play came in the ninth inning with the score tied at 5-5. Rich Morales was on first with a single and Pat Corrales hit a low line drive to right which Bonds caught on the run then threw to first to double off Morales.

JOSELOFF ODESSA, USSR (UPI) - The Soviet Union gets a close look today at some of the track and field athletes it will likely face in the 1976 Olympics during a two-day meet between the juniors of the Soviet and American national teams. "I expect a close struggle," said Yakov Bkelteser, the Russian coach. "It will be a tougher fight than Minsk," he: added, referring to the senior meet earlier this week that saw the Soviets down the American men 121-112 and the women 9651. "With the ages (up to 19), you can expect many surprises —good and bad." Joseph Healey, the U.S. coach and a 15-year veteran of coaching at New York University, said he looked for good; performances in the men's sprints and relays despite the sidelining of Wardell Gilbreath in the 200 meters.

Lockman discovered what he believes may have caused his team's steady slide from an eight • game Eastern Division lead on June 27 to second place status one month later. "Almost all the regulars have been hitting defensively. That is, they're not attacking the bait I'd say only Rick Monday and Jose Cardenal go to the plate in an offensive manner," Lockman said. Lockman said discovery of this passive plate attitude didn't come to him overnight He has been noticing it for some time, he said, and it may have been brought home to him earlier Thursday afternoon when the Cubs won a suspended game 10-9 without getting a man to first base in the two innings required to finish the game Reuschel found out too late to do any good that his slider was dropping too low as it neared the plate. It was one of those errant sliders that Richie Hebner sent sailing in the fourth inning to break a 2-2 tie and send the Pirates on to their victory. "The slider kept staying up," he said.
