And tint could happen if the weather ttaya calm and tunny tor four days of the tournament. "We thought the record of 66 set by our own Christy O'Connor last year was unbeatable," Port* marnock Captain Willie Gill said. "But now we're wondering after the practice scores turned in by Arnold Palmer and Sam Snead, the two Americans." Snead turned the 7,002-yard, par 72 links beside the sea into almost a drive and pitch course. He shot a final practice round of 65, sev- i unifaf paf. Pttrnop wit only one behind, wHwra fwnt of Bin* land and tM ftees of Wales had 67i and Marry Wwtman of England and Kotcht Ono of Japan had 88s, But it will be a different story If the wind whi-« in f-ora the Irish Sea.

Australia, v'th Peter Thomson and Kel Nagle, Is defending the team title. Stan Leonard of Canada is the defending individual champion. Jack Dempsey Will be 65 Friday; Still Looks Trim NEW YORK (AP)-The grandmother advanced hesitantly toward the table, leading a 10-year- old boy by the hand. "Mr. Dempsey," she asked timorously, "could I could we have your autograph? I've watched your career for years." Jack Dempsey gave her a Clark Gable smile, shook hands with the awed youngster, and, asking the boys' name, wrote a personal message on a menu. And you had a fleeting image of that boy 60 years hence proudly telling his grandchildren how he shook the hand of the great Manassa Mauler, the man who became a legend in his lifetime. Greaves Takes 's Crown Tiger' EDMONTON, Alta., (AP)-Wilf Greaves of Edmonton Wednesday night stripped Nigeria's Dick Tiger of the British Empire middleweight boxing crown in a weird 15-round bout that was at first called draw. Shortly after it announced at ringside that Tiger had retained his championship, the Edmonton Boxing Commission went into an emergency session and gave Greaves the decision. The scorecards apparently had been added incorrectly. In the scoring announced at ringside, Judge Dr. Louis Schwartz voted 9-6 for Tiger. Jud£° Dr. Les W i 11 o c '< s had Grr-ves in front 7-5-3. The deciding vote was cast by Referee J hnny Smith, \v' v o saw it 5-5-5. The point totals were evenly split 69-69. The crowd of more than 3,500 all but stormed the ring v: *n the draw was announced. The rever- .—.1 came long after the arena was empty. T'e recount showed the two Judges' cards canceled each other --'t nid th- referee's r d gave s?x rounds to Greaves, five to Ti- L r and four even. The fighters went the distance without letting up, except during the last roun I ncn Greaves apparently thought he had the bout in the bag and concentrated on just hanging on until the final bell.

He still looks the part. Straight as a pencil, he appears taller than his 6 feet and one inch. A diet ordered by his doctor to reduce high cholesterol, or what he terms "thick blood," has whittled off 30 pounds and left him a svelte 200. He spends much time now at his Broadway restaurant, where he is besieged by hero worshippers of all ages, from all walks of life, from crossroad villages and distant cities. Dempsey has eased up on his living pace. At 65, he feels It is time to take it a little asier. So there is rto more galloping across the country refereeing wrestling matches or fights, although he'd still do it for charity. "I feel pretty good, pretty good," he said, chewing on one of the long cigars he consumes at the rate of 10 a day. "Life has been good to me, and I am very grateful. I have five fine grandchildren, all girls—Barbara has three and Joan, the older of my daughters, two. I have business interests, including a radio and television school in Chicago with an enrollment of 2,600 and 20,000 taking correspondence courses." One of his cherished goals is to see boxing cleaned up and accepted as a good, wholesome sport.

He said he was Interested in further discussions if assured of adequate police protection for the fight. The police protection Item may result in the third Patterson Johansson heavyweight title fight moving out of New York. Stephen Kennedy, New York police commissioner, replied to Fu gazy's criticism of Inadequate police protection for the Monday night fight and said the police will not be used as "bouncers, ticket takers of ushers to assist fight promoters who chisel on expenses." Fugazy claimed he had 635 tatemen, ticket takers, watchers, ushers, supervisors and special policemen working at the Polo Grounds at a cost of $25,000. He claimed between 15,000 and 20,000 crashed the gate and estimated the actual crowd at about 55,000 instead of the official 31,897 announced by the New York State Athletic Commission. The crowd swarmed into the ringside working press section after the fifth round knockout victory by Patterson. All the talk about a third fight could be academic. The tax situation might make it impossible. Depending on the income of the two fighters from Monday's bout, estimated by the theater TV people at between $800,000 and $900,000, they would be fighting for practically nothing but the tax pernle If they v.-ent again this year.

"We had lots of wind, rain and cold but it didn't detract from the beauty of the country nor from the enjoyment of the trip." Morrissey was in a party of six anglers including Tom Fleming, Godfrey, and John Joneu, Carrollton, Mo. The men floated downstream an estimated dis- tnce of 35 miles in three boats. There were also two commissary boats manned by men who went on ahead to fix lunch and set up camp at night on gravel bars. When the hungry anglers reached their campsite, dinner was virtually ready. "We expected to catch more fish than we did," Morrissey continued. "We had to work for every one that we landed. The take included google eye, bluegill and bass. At night we fished tight line and landed catfish and carp. The first night, I enjoyed it so much that I fished until 3 a.m." Wonderful Food The float began at 7 a.m. both mornings. They found that there were numerous shad in the river also. Morrissey commented that the food was out of this world. And the coffee, made in an old granite pot, was the best he ever drank. The men used flies, plugs, spinning lures and! docks, harbor, and other equipment represents an investment up to $50,000. The club has a membership of about 140 at this writing.

Olmstead, Humbert road, pointed out. Claim to Fame The Boners Club gained a new nominee Sunday, according to secret agent 213. Don Pierce and his wife, Frances, 2326 Central Ave., trailered their boat to Grafton where they launched It in a harbor. Pierce was all enthused to try out his new 40-hp motor. But when he went to start it, he discovered that he had left his keys at home. He was so disgusted that he was ready to turn around and go home for the rest of the day. But his wife volunteered to go back after the keys. The Pierces finally got underway at 11 a.m. and had a nice day afloat after all.
