MONDAY, SEPT. T, 1983 BLTTHEVILLE (ARK.)" COURIER PAGE SEVEN Wet Course Slows Tourney By HERB ALTSCHULL WASHINGTON (AP) — A band of weary and waterlogged golfers set off today on a marathon, 36-hole grind in an effort to wind up the National Celebrities Tournament Before the snows come. Officials yesterday called off the third round of the tourney for the second straight day — with only nine of the 60 players still out on the course. All the scores were canceled and* —— Play today resumed at the hall way mark with Lew Worsham o Oakmont, Pa., still leading with 1 under par score of 137. Worsham was having his trou bles yesterday as he and his tw partners, Bill Nary of Kansas Cit and Charlie Bassler of Catonsville Md., fought their way through a | series of water puddles and deep mud to the 12th green. Nary complained that his 20-foo | putt would have to travel through 0- big puddle and asked permission to move his ball to another spo ! 20 feet away without a water haza [ between him and the hole. Most Didn't Do Well Worsham and Bassler objected I so they sent out for a ruling. Be- I fore the ruling was handed down | playwa s called off. A few good rounds were can I celed, but most of hte golfers did do very well on the watery Wood| mont Country Club course. Doug Ford of Harrison, N. Y. I skidded to a 76 yesterday after a record-equaling 64 the. day before I Both of those scores were wiped | off the books. The best rounds turned in yes- I terday were byi Jack Isaacs, pro I si Langley Field, Va., and Ed «P>rky) Oliver, the veteran Ryder I Cupper from Palm Springs, Calif., I who was celebrating his 38th birth- I day. Isaacs came home with a 4 | under par 68 and Oliver had 69. With the scores back at the half- I way total, Ted Kroll of New Hart- I lord, N. Y., retains a second-place I tie with Nary and Gary Middlecoff lot Memphis, Tenn., all at 139. Bass- ller, Jim Turnesa of Briar Cliff, IN.

Bob Hope, the comedian, lured I the biggest gallery and turned in I a card of 38, two over par, for | nine holes. Few of the celebrities were I around for the replay today. Six I professionals, who played with the • celebrities, set out in quest of the I Arthur Godfrey Cup, which goes |to the winner of that division.

(/PJ—After 23 • years, a hole in one has been scor- led on the Cassadaga Country Club I course. William S.

Charles, Layne At Boxing Crossroads By MURRAY ROSE NEW YORK tfi — Heavyweights Ezzard Charles and Rex Layne reach the crossroads of their fistic careers tomorrow night. One more loss for each and they can just about say goodby to the big time. Charles, the former heavyweight champion, risks his title hopes in Philadelphia 10-rounder with rugged Harold Johnson, the No. 2 light heavyweight contender. The Cinoinnati Negro was upset by Nino Valdes in Miami Beach a month ago and must win to keep In contention. Johnson, who whipped Valdes decisively, has been clamoring for a shot at light heavyweight champion Arche Moore's crown. A vic- ;ory over Charles would not only 'orce Moore's hand but would also vault the Philadelphia Negro into .ding contender's role among the dreadnaughts. It's an outdoor bout in Connie Mack Stadium but will be fought even if it rains. Promoter Herman Taylor has preened his ring close the grandstand and .has arranged for a canvas canopy over he ring. All of the spectators' seats will be covered. The press will oc- ;upy the only field seats.

Handicap Spun Golfers On HAVBRHILL, Mass. — Ralph K. Ebllng, one-armed pro at the Haverhill Country Club, says a physical handicap is often no handicap at all. Many times it spurs a golfer to greater performances on the links. That's the point he stresses at exhibitions at veterans and crippled children's hospitals.

WALDORF Head Coach, California BERKELEY, Calif. — (NBA) — It doesn't take clairvoyance to figure out the strength in the Pacific Coast Conference this year. UCLA and ' Southern California are as prominent in pre-season calculations as the campanile that towers over the California campus in Berkeley, The Bruins and Trojans were clearly the top teams in the conference a year ago, and their losses were fewer than any of their rivals.

In a closely bunched category behind those teams come Washington, California and Stanford. Washington, with a new coach in able John Cherberg, faces the task of replacing quarterback Don Hemrich. I understand a sophomore from Santa Monica, Sandy Lederman, shows great promise. The Huskies are extremely well fortified at end with George Black and Doug McClary. California is short on experience, particularly in the backfield. Halfback Paul Larson, an elusive runner, may have to help at quarterback. The middle of our line is fairly stable with Matt Hezeltine at center and Tom Dutton and Hal Norris at the guards. Stanford is helped by the return of guard Norm Mangoolan after a year of inactivity due to injury. Bob Barrett is an experienced quarterback and an accurate pass- toson and Bill Jacobs.

Water is free, yet someone has fixed a dollar and cents valu* on nature's unpriceable gift. By what right? Go out into the country and you'll find the farmer getting all the water he wants, merely for the effort of digging a well and working a pump. He gets no water bill. Go up into the unspoiled mountains, dip your cup in a bubbling spring and drink your fill. Bring home a few barrels full. No one will impose any charge for what you take. Go down to the nearest river bank. Fill as many buckets as you can haul away. You won't have to pay a cent for their contents. 1 Or the next time it rains, put out tubs and basins. Or do as they do in Bermuda: make your entire roof a collecting system leading to a cistern. No meter will register payments due. I But ask the farmer what it cost to dig his well and how much energy is consumed in operating it. Figure the expense of your trip to the mountains, not forgetting the price of the barrels. Compute the value of the time consumed in hauling river water, adding the doctor's bills in case you fail to boil it before using. And campare the amount of water you obtain with the cost of installing and mainlaing a Bermuda-type roof collection system Water is free to all. But it. isn't always available where people •want it in a condition s^fe for them to use. It's the water works' job to take over the task of collecting water, transporting water and making sure that the water delivered is safe for human consumption and suitable for human use, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
