For Jack Before British Open CARNOUSTIE, Scotland (UPI) Jack Nicklaus has a formula for winning the big ones. • It is to bring what he calls his swing -pattern and his confidence just to a peak before the opening round and then go for broke. "When my swing pattern and confidence stay there," he said Monday, "I'm not going to los« very often. Sure I might get beat, but I'm not going to lose." The Golden Bear has parlayed his formula into 15 major golf championships, more than any other golf, player has, and the next target is this week's British Open, beginning Wednesday. Staying cool is important to the formula, too, and the blond bomber is a picture of calm for his first challenge since what he regards as a loss at the U.S. Open. Britain's intrepid bookies have rated him the 4-1 favorite in front of Johnny Miller at 8-1 and defending champion Gary Player at 10-1. And well they should. Nicklaus has his swing pattern and confidence honed to the point where he could break every record in the Open and Camoustie book. The Masters champion closed out a series of four practice rounds Monday with a seven-under-par 65 that included a bogey five on the 18th hole. It ran his warm-up string to 67-65-67-65-264 or 24 under par. Big Jack warned, however, he puts little stock in practice rounds as an indicator of how he will play in any given tournament. But records tend to fall when the formula is at work as it is ,now. The British Open record, shared by Arnold Palmer and Tom Weiskopf, is .276. No one has ever broken 68 in an ( 0pen at Carnoustie, where the course record'is Ben Hogan's 282 from 1953. "My swing pattern is good," Nicklaus said. "But you toave to take that from here and put it into a tournament. I have confidence that it will stay there but you never know." He said every putt he looks at seems to go in. "When I came over here, I wasn't happy with my game," the 35-year-old Ohioan said. "But obviously I'm reasonably happy with it now. There are a few shots that I need to work on. But that's always good... "I've had enough practice." Nicklaus has played virtually every major course in his glittering career, but he said: "I still think this is the toughest golf course we play -in Carnoustie conditions." Those conditions take the 7,065 yards, par 72 humpy seaside layout and add a large dose of rain and nonstop blustery gales. The result is situation normal. But this is a tame Carnoustie -so far -because a persistent sun has baked dry thenormally slow fairways and the wind hasn't raised a blow in anger. Arthur Ashe Rejects Conception Of Wimbledon As Grudge Match PITTSBURGH /TIPM _ TnVlt, /i».o» A.,.. _,_ ,, ... .. . •:. ^* PITTSBURGH (UPI) - In his first U.S. appearance since his Wimbledon triumph, 32-year-old Arthur Ashe Monday rejected suggestions he always had been a bridesmaid and never a bride in the big-time tournaments. "I've won too many big ones in the past to say that," said Ashe, who scored a crushing victory over heavily- favored Jimmy Connors Saturday. "I've always been hot during certain weeks of other years, but it didn't always coincide with the big tournaments. "If I'd win a tournament in Louisville in mid-July, they'd say, 'Ho-hum, he won another tournament.' See, you've got to be hot .during the big ones." Ashe also discredited 1 speculation that .the Saturday finals were "a grudge match" with No. 1 seed Connors, who has filed a multi-million dollar law suit against him. "Personally, I like Jimmy. He's basically a nice guy," Ashe said. ".It was not a grudge match Saturday," he said. "Grudge conjures up something like vendetta. VI think the lawsuit was his manager's doing. Twenty-two-year-olds don't go around suing people. He's •being handled like a prize fighter." Multi-million dollar law suits are in •litigation between.Co'nnors.and Ashe,.' based on Connors' charges of restraint of trade and Ubel. = ."Would I play with Jimmy Connors Slow Pitch Softball League Standings Red Division Games Through July 6 Economy Fire 7 o Goodyear !.!"!'."!!!'."!!'! 5 3 Jenkins Service '„". 4 4 Metal Specialty ' 4 4 Freeport Rehabilitation 35 Journal-Standard .'"'2 4 Bonanza j 5 Micro No. Two 1 7 Ar-Dee ".".'.'.'.'".".'o 8 Blue Division Siedenburg 7 t cubby's ;;;;;;;;;; 7 { Hersh Realty • «'2' Third Ward Tavern '"52 Pabst .'".'".".'.'.'." 43 Union Loan & Savings 44 Snltzel's " 44 Micro No. 1 /.

"She was like part of the family," her badly-shaken trainer, Frank Whiteley Jr., had said early Monday morning after the 3-year-old filly had been Davis Defends 'Rozelle Rule' MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. (UPI)— If there were no "Rozelle Rule" in the National Football League, the top players, would move to pleasant climates and glamor cities. That was the testimony in U.S." District Court Monday of defense witnesses Willie Davis, former defensive end for the Green Bay Packers, and Lamar Hunt, owner of the Kansas City Chiefs, Fifteen players are challenging the rule which empowers NFL Commissioner Pete Rozelle to set compensation when an athlete plays out his option with one team and signs with another club. "Yes, I feel there should be some form of compensation," said Davis, an all-'pro six times for the powerful Packer teams of the 1960s. "I feel,very strongly that teams are built around certain players at times and for one of those players to leave without restraint would create a morale problem." .• Davis, who played with Bart Starr, Jim Taylor and Paul Hornung on three straight world champion teams under coach Vince Lombardi, said he thinks most players today accept the "Rozelle Rule." If the rule were removed, he said, "They'd leave a city or team they didn't particularly want to be with." Davis, now a pro football color analyst for a television network and a Los Angeles area beer distributor, said the majority of-players would prefer to play for teams on the West Coast and Miami, where the weather is favorable, or in the large metropolitan areas, such as New York or Chicago. Hunt said elimination of the rule would . lead to "substantially more player movement than is the case today. "Maybe not a mass exodus at Kansas City," Hunt said, "but I think there would be some interest in leaving. We'd be worse off because we'd have an unstable product. The same would hold true for every team." Polish Track Team Could Defeat U.S. PRAGUE (UPI) - The American track team that lost to the Soviet Union might also be defeated by Poland. The American team, coming off a defeat in Kiev, rebounded a bit Monday on the opening day of. a two-day .meet here with Poland and Czechoslovakia. The American men took a 61-60 lead over the Polish men and a 73-48 lead over Czechoslovakia. The American women led the Czechs, 46-27, but trailed the Polish women, 36-37.

With members of her stable family numbed with emotion looking on, Ruffian was lowered into a grave next to Ihe flagpole where earlier in the day the New York Racing Association banner had flown at half-mast. She was the first of all the great horses that have raced in New York to be accorded the honor of a final resting place in the track infield, after owner Stuart A.

But this beautiful black filly had captured their hearts also; she was of that rarest of breeds that.transcend horseflesh to take on human identity. That's why many of New York's top trainers had flocked to Dr. William 0 Reed's one-story, brick equine hospital late Sunday night to see if there was some way they might be able to help in the massive efforts being made to save this filly's life.' ' John Russell, Elliott Burch, Reggie Cornell, Sid read like a Who's Who of. thoroughbred racing as they stopped by to inquire of the marvelous filly who had won all 10 of her ^previous races with a flair for the sensational. And, when they heard the damage the team of five veterinarians and one orthopedic specialist were trying to repair, they sadly shook their heads. She would have to be docile when the anesthesia wore off and they knew this filly. She had too much spirit. As Dr. Alex Harthill had explained when announcing Ruffian was being put to sleep: "She struggled and fought so hard coming out of the anesthesia she pulled out all the nails in the special shoe." Forbes' Jury Picked; Little Hockey Known TLCTWMTj 1 A Tir\¥ TO Ifi svTnv*. «it * * . «' MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. (UPI) -Five out of 12 jurors were selected Monday in the assault trial ( of Boston Bruins forward Dave Forbes and indications were those selected knew very little about hockey. Forbes is charged with assault in a fight with Henry Boucha of the Minnesota North Stars. A Hennepin County grand jury brought the aggravated assault charge against Forbes for using his hockey stick on Boucha in a National Hockey League game Jan. 4 between the Bruins and the North Stars. Five out of the first seven jurors questioned were accepted by defense attorney Ron Meshbesher and prosecutor Allen Kaplan. Meshbesher said the indictment was "selective, discriminatory and arbitrary" because it is the first time in Minnesota that an athlete has been charged for conduct during a game. It is also the first trial of its kind in the United States. "We're looking for fair jurors," Meshbesher said. "We have many avid hockey fans here, some for and some against Dave Forbes. We'd like to get the ones that are for him on the jury, but obviously the prosecution won't accept them. The best we can hope to do is weed out those with strong opinions on both sides." This, apparently, was accomplished. Boucha, 24, jumped from the North Stars to the Minnesota Fighting Saints of the WHA last month. After the January fracas he received 25 stitches to close a cut near his right eye and later underwent an operation for double vision. The aggravated assault charge carries a penalty of up to five years in jail and a $5,000 fine.
