(UPI) - JoAnne Garner will pay .a lot more attention to what her caddy tells her in the second'round of the U.S. Women's Open golf championship than she did in the first, that's for sure. "When I'm in doubt, I use my own judgment,", mrs. Garner said after a first-round 73 Thursday left her one stroke off Judy Rankin's lead. "And today, my own judgment was wrong." Mrs. Garner's 73, one over par, was a godd 'score on a day when two-thirds of the field couldn't break 80, but it wasn't good'enough for her because she figured she deserved better. She did. The '1971 champion and perhaps the strongest player on the women's tour, Mrs. Garner hit 16 greens in regulation. She drove the ball in the fairway on every par four and every par five hole. By her own count, she had 14 "legitimate" .birdie opportunities, Curl Leads At Pleasant Valley CLARINDA'S STAR lost her footlrig coining out of the starting gate for the third race at Thistledown Thursday and threw rider Larry Turner (top).

(UPI) - The Kentucky Colonels of the American Basketball Association Thursday night announced the signing of Jimmy Dan Conner after the Virginia Squires traded negotiation rights to the University of Kentucky standout. SUTTON, Mass! (UP?) - Rod Curl, using hooking fairway shots and arrow-straight putting, has taken the first round lead in the $200,000 Pleasant VaUey Classic golf tournament. The 5-foot-5 Curl, made six birdies and a bogey Thursday for a five-under par 66 and a single stroke lead over Miller Barber. Once the hooks neared the green, Curl used a wedge and a new-found putting touch to gain the lead. "I took a bad putter to the British Open, but when I came back here last week I found my game in the Milwaukee Open. And this was one of my better rounds of the year," said Curl, who is recovering from tendonitis. Barber, 44, was surprised to bo, so close, considering his poor health. The Texan was suffering from seafood poisoning, a sinus infection and allergies when he awoke Thursday. "I hit some balls before the round and felt bad, but decided to try it. I felt badly on the first tee and I felt weak coming in. I'm ' a little surprised I did as well as I did." Three healthy golfers - Lee Elder, Eddie Pearce and Chuck Courtney New Group Takes * Control Of Penguins PITTSBURGH (UPI) - The Pittsburgh Penguin franchise in the National Hockey League was transferred Officially Thursday to Pittsburgh Penguins, Inc., a group including Albert A, Savill, Columbus, Ohio, Wren A.

Another 19 players,,headed by Lee Trevino, Hale Irwin and Dave Stockton, were tied at 70 and 13 more shot even-par 7L . putts'of 15 feet or less. None of them dropped. ",I can't remember a round in which I didn't make any birdies," sWe said. "I was putting so well I just figured sooner or later they would have to start dropping, but they didn't." Mrs. Garner's caddy this week is Walter Weeks, who caddied for Carol Mann 10 years ago when this championship last was played here. 'Miss Mann won it that time. Thursday, Mrs. Garner made her only bogey against 17 pars when she three-putted the third green. "I second putt to go left and it went right," -she said. "You really can't read that. It's local knowledge." At No. 9^ she had another makeable birdie putt. "My caddy told me it was a straight putt," Mrs. Garner said; "I looked at it and looked at it, and said it had to go Legion Tourney Opens Saturday At Krape Morrison, Mount Morris and Lena, respective preliminary district winners at Rock Falls, Mount Morris and Freeport, will clash at Krape Park over the weekend in the finals of the District 13 American Legion baseball tournament.

It didn!t." For the rest of the tournament, Mrs. Cariier saW, she'll pay more attention to what Walter tells her. She was tied at 73, one over par, with 18-year-old amateur Nancy Lopez, twice the national junior champion, and Judy Kimball, who won the LPGA Championship in 1962 but is winless the past four years. | Three more, players were another 'stroke back at 74- defending champion Sandra Haynie,, rookie pro Sandra Burns and Canadian Sandra Post, the, 1968 LPGA champion. Mrs. Rankin, who was been runner-up six times on the LPGA tour this year including three losses in playoffs, started horribly Thursday.

Just make sure you know one from the other if you want -to execute the right throw-in play.

AH Pass Opening lead -OK West led three rounds of diamonds to start with. South ruffed the third diamond, drew trumps with the ace and queen, and ruffed another diamond. South then cashed two high spades and led a third spade, hoping that the trick would be won by a pussycat. As it happened, East - that dirty dog - won the third spade. East returned a club, and South had to lose a club trick. Can Make Contract South can make the contract if, he knows which animal to catch. After ruffing the third round of diamonds, South must lead out his remaining five trumps, discarding a low spade from dummy on the last trump. As his last five cards West must save one diamond, two clubs, and therefore only two spades. Declarer thereupon cashes the king and ace of spades and gives up a diamond trick to West, discarding the losing spade from his hand. West must win the trick and lead away from the king of clubs no matter how pitifully he may mew. Declarer wins the last two tricks, making the contract. DAILY QUESTION , Partner opens with one diamond, and the next player passes. You hold: S- A 5 4; H- Q 9 8 4; D- 9 7 6 3; C- Q 5. What do you say? ANSWER: Bid one heart. Respond in a major suit rather than raise partner's minor suit.
