Sun Devils Alone Atop WAC Football Standings CHEYENNE, Wyo., (UPI)— Mistakes were the best • weapons Wyoming had .Saturday afternoon, but Western Athletic Conference mates Colorado State and Arizona made more .than they with. knew what to do three CSU miscues during their WAC encounter to pull out a 176 victory in the 63rd meeting between" the two schools. Wyoming scores followed a recovered fumble, pass interception and short punt. Colorado State scored for the only time following a poor snap yellow-jacket flying in, . .u«-s«» Mm then hopping apprehensively from one foot to another while" being buzzed by a menacing yellow-jacket?- SEEMED FUNNY That's what' happened here Sunday during the fourth- inning of Baltimore's 5-3 win over Oakland in -the palyoff opener and although it mightye seemed funny to the 42,621 Memorial Stadium fans who witnessed'Powell trying to get away from the bee, it wasn t :unny at all to him. Three times he backed out of the batter's box with Vida Blue ready to pitch to him and everytime he tried moving away the bee kept following trim. • • , The fans roared when Hank Soar, the plate umpire, swatted Powell' on the back with his chest protector trying to be helpful. Finally, one of tne , 'How do you know it was a yellow-jacket?" a guy m the clubhouse asked Powell. "That's what 'they call 'em in Florida," said Powell, •; who comes from Lakeland, Fla. "Anyway, Hank Soar says we 11 wait until we get him,. outta here." . ~ . "Are bees usually a problem in this ballpark?" someone else asked Powell. PALM OF HAND "There must be nine'million of them around here," he; said. "I caught one of them in the dugout the other day and squeezed him and he stung me. I ain't afraid of 'em, but this one the other day stung me .m the palm of my hand."

French Rookie Finishes First In Watkins Glen Grand Prix down. WATKINS GLEN, N. Y. (UPI) —Francois Cevert has learned his lesson well from world driving' champion Jackie Stewart. The 27-year-old French rookie, one of the ."Young Lions" of the Formula One circuit, took over Sunday when the car of Stewart, his : Tyrrell teammate, failed and went on to win the Grand Prix of the United.States by 40 seconds over Jo Siffert's BRM. But seven laps from, the end, Cevert, who had finished second to Stewart twice this .year and was leading one lap from the end of the Italian Grand Prix, thought he might have to go back" for a few more lessons. "Jackie is a good teacher," Cevert said. "He never takes chances 1 "and' he is definitely the best on the circuit this year. But I-'wanted to be second best. What's wrong with that? I was running strong, and the car raced real well,- but just seven laps from the end-I almost hit a wall.- -..- •-..": HIT THE WALL edged away from the field, but world driving championship, 29 frustration overtook him on the I more, than runner-up Peterson, 14th lap. Pointing at the - - - - troublesome front >end of his Tyrrell as he went past the pits, he watched helplessly as 'us teammate, Cevert, flashed Dy on the way to his first Irand Prix victory. AFTER 20 LAPS from center on a punting situation that gave the Rams the ball on Wyoming's 40. Meanwhile Arizona dug its own grave in Tucson. Texas Tech used five Wildcat fumbles, four of them inside the Tech 25, and three pass interceptions to hold the Wildcats off 13-10 in a non-conference • battle. "BEAT OURSELVES" "All we had to do was cross their goal line once," Head Coach Bob Weber said after Arizona's first loss in three games. "We beat ourselves with mistakes." In league action Arizona State stopped Texas-El Paso 247, and New Mexico shut out Brigham Young in a Friday night game 14-0. Utah dropped a 34-12 decision to Washington State of the Pacific Eight in a none-conference game. Twelfth-tanked Arizona State found the ingredient it was missing —a passing attack— and fired past the Miners. Junior quarterback Rick Brown and senior Grady Hurst, seeing action for the first time, combined to complete 14-of-23 passes for 230 yards. ASU J s conference 1 leading rushing attack also went all out for WAC defensive leader UTEP, rolling up 248 yards. Sophomore Woody Green led all rushers with 109 yards. It was ASU's 20th consecutive victory. HELD TO 5» YARDS The Miners had trouble generating any offense. Their usually potent passing attack was held to 58 yards with 4-of-9 completions. New Mexico found the Friday night atmosphere in Provo, Utah, to its liking and the Lobos rolled up 440 yards in offense en route to the victory. Running back Fred Henry scored both touchdowns on one- yard plunges, but quarterback Rocky Long made the night's biggest impression, hitting 9-of- 12 passes for 115 yards. Head Coach Rudy Feldman praised the Lobo kicking game for consistently putting BYU in bad field position. In New Mexico's 44-20 loss to Iowa State a week ago, Feldman said inconsistent punting that set up Iowa State scores and a lack of discipline cost the Lobos the game. FEW THINGS RIGHT Utah, down after losing a. pair of offensive battles in its openers, could do few things right in its contest with Washington State. Cougar Quarterback Ty Paine set a school record in running' for three touchdowns i n Washington State's first victory. Utah remains without a victory, having suffered a 36-29 iloss to Oregon and 41-21 I EN VISIONS DIVISION TITLE "Lspun trying to avoid Denis Hulme's car when he hit .the it Attles Feels Warriors Much Improved : SAN FRANCISCO (UPI)— | Added depth, more speed and a • permanent.

"Welfi • have added depth, .more team • speed, a lot more quickness up •front and greater shooting ; ability." I OFF-SEASON TRADES ' The acquisition' of five-year • NBA veterans Cazzie Russell and Jim Barnett through off- season trades has given the club added depth among frontline talent.- Rookies Odis Allison, Greg Gary and. Cyril Baptiste also are counted on for help and may -push some veterans off the roster.

Barnett, an aggressive . guard who averaged 18 points per game at Portland 'last season, joins holdover starters Jeff Mullins and Fritz Williams to give the Warriors three backcourt performers of first- string stature. Mullins, a 6-4 sharpshooter on the brink of stardom the 'last few seasons, led, the Warriors in scoring last season with a 20.8 average, firing 48 per cent from the field. TOP PLAYMAKER He and the .6-3 Williams were among the NBA's free throw percentage leaders at. 84 per cent and-Williams "was the Warriors top playmaker, aver- aging five assists per game. Attles ha s announced a wide open battle for the two forward spots,' with Clyde Lee, Bob Porfman and Joe Ellis getting a big push from newcomers Russell; Allison and Baptiste. "Nobody has a lock on a job at forward," says Attles. "We have a lot of mobility up front because Ellis and Allison both are good ballhandlers at 6-6 and could serve as swingmen between, forward and guard. .. "Russell gives us a lot more quickness and Lee can also do a ."good job giving: Nate -a breather now and then, explains Attles. , ' ' The Warriors acquired Russell in a swap with New York for Jerry Lucas, who led the club in rebounds lastVseason but was often ' •regarded ^as; a liability -because of his. slowness afoot. .

Allison, who starred J at Lap after lap Oevert built his ead until he was nine seconds in front of Jacky Ickx of Belgium in a Ferrari after 20 laps. However, Ickx. who was only seventh fastest in qualifying, had the fastest car on the track Sunday, and he gradually cut down the. margin to three] seconds at one point until going • out with a broken magneto nine laps from the end. After Ickx' departure, the race belonged to Cevert except for his -brief brush with disaster and the wall. Although Ickx was timed at 116.964 mph on the 35th lap for the fastest lap of the day, Cevert said he wasn't worried. "I didn't think he could catch me anyway," Cevert said. Nevada - Las Vegas, has - been the big surprise of the rookie camp and is likely to stick. The club also has high hopes for the 6-9 Baptiste, a.hardship draftee from Creight'on.

I<y prize is worth $28- miiiion old French francs." For the four American drivers, the race was only a long series of frustrations. The two brightest American hopes —Mark Donohue of Media, Pa. and Mario Andretti of Nazareth, Pa. —both missed the race because of a commitment to drive at Trenton, N.J., in a race that was postponed from last weekend. Peter Revson of Harbor City, Calif., went out after one lap when his Tyrrell blew its clutch; Sam Posey of Sharon, Conn., retired after 15 laps with a burned piston; Pete Lovely of Seattle, Wash., was already being lapped after 10 laps in his makeshift Lotus 69; and Skip Barber of Carlisle, Mass., was ISth in the final results. drubbing by Arizona State in earlier games.
