ALTON EVENING , JULY ao, less .*+~.^***~n~*~*~*il*r Pro Tops PGA %By DON W5IS8- Associated Press SnoHs Write* bALLAS (AP) - Dick Mart, steady young matt with plenty o heart, takes the same tbree-stroki lead he had after one round !nt< tile third round of the Professiona Golfersh Association championship today. The question is whether h dart hang on for two more days The feeling Is growing that the answer may be "Yes." "Don't write off this boy," his playing' partners during the lirst 36 holds, Bob Keller and Dick Turner, .said. "Me doesn't shake easy. He's quite a player." This* ib-yenr-old assistan' club professional from Hinsdale, 111., Is ahead of par despite the double extreme pressure of a demanding heat-blistered golf course and the anticipation that his wife, Joyce back In Illinois could present him with his second child any minute "I'm glad it's over," Hart sale after firing an unspectacular but impressive 72 Friday that enabled him to maintain his lead over the world's greatest professionals with a 36-hole total of 138. While National Open champion Julius Boros, Masters champion Jack Nicklaus and the likes of Tony Lema, Doug Ford and Bruce Crampton fired and fell back, Hart calmly drummed one-over-par round at the 7,046- yard, par 36-35—71 Dallas Athletic Gub course with 15 pars, one birdie and two bogies. It was good enough to keep him well in control of the pace—three shots in front of Boros, Lema and club pro Shelley Mayfield, four on Nicklaus, Ford and 42-year-old Manuel de la Torre, five up on a foursome of Gene Littler, Crampton, Bill Johnston and Doug Sanders and a whopping nine shots ahead of golf's glamour boy, Arnold Palmer. It took a score of 151 or better for the two rounds to survive the cut to the low 75 players and ties for the third round today and the fourth round Sunday — portions of which will be televised nationally (CBS).

Miss Mills Leads by 3 By HAROLD HARRISON CINCINNATI (AP) — Maybe it pays off to have ailments when you play in the Women's National Open Golf Tournament, Leading the field into today's final 36 holes of the $9.000 tournament is Mary Mills, a 23-year-old blonde with a back ailment which she says bothers her swin^ and which has limited her competition this year to eight tournaments. Her closest competitor is Louise Suggs, the veteran pro from ray Beach, Fla., who has be-in out of action for a full year be cause of ill health. Miss Mills, who seems very nonchalant about the whole thin?, tied the Kenwood Country Club course record Friday with a 3- under-par 70 for a 36-hole total of 141, five under par. Miss Suggs clipped one stroke off par for the second straigh day and now has 72-72—144. Miss Suggs, of course, has beer around the pro circuit a lorn time and is a former top money winner. Except for her, however the big name pros will have their work cut out for them in today's finish. Sandra Haynie of Houston, Tex is back at 147, six strokes behind Mary Lena Faulk of Sea Island Ga., is another stroke back at 148. Jackie Pung of Daly City Calif., Is at 149. Kathy Cornelius of Scottsdale, Ariz, is at 151 and Betsy Rawls of Spartanburg, S.C. who has won this event four times, three since it has been sponsored by the U. S. Golf elation, Is at 152. Far back at 158 was defending champion Mrs. Murle Lindstron of Sutton, Mass. In between the two front run ners and the big names are two other comparative newcomers tr the pro circuit. Clifford Ann Creed of Alexandria, La., who was tied with Miss Mills Thurs day, had a 75 for 146 and Pats> Hahn pf Wilmington, Del., came up with a par 73 for a W7. MIDWEST LEAGUE By THR ASSOCIATED Everything is coming up right for the Los Angeles Dodgeis. Big Trank Howard puts on a show of muscle when it's needed against Milwaukee. And even fire-balling Don Drysdale beats the Braves tor a chaange. Howard, carrying an unimpressive .248 batting average but pure murder against the Braves, slugged a pair of homers at Milwaukee Friday night and Drysdale spun a six-hitter in a 4-2 victory, mating the Braves for the first ime in four decisions this sea- ion. The Dodgers have won three Jtraight—and 21 of 26 since they jegan their surge four weeks ago —and they own their biggest lead of the year, IVz games. Pittsburgh humbled Chicago's lecond-place Cubs 9-4 with K five- run eighth inning behind run- Decatur 7, Quincy 6 Wisconsin Rapids 3, Cedar Rap Ids 2 »Quad Cities at Fox CSUes, pdd Rt Pubuqujj, ppd, j-aln at W^erjoo, rain Howard, Drysdale Pace LA Victory By JIM I1ACKLEMAN Associated Press Sports Writer staved Bob Friend. The St. Louis Cardinals moved to within one percentage point of second, beating Houston 7-2. Elsewhere in the NL, rookie Tommy Harper batted across all five Cincinnati runs and John Tsitouris turned in a strong pitching job as the Reds hung another loss on the staggering San Francisco Giants, 5-2, and Roy Sievers' two-run homer with two out in the last of the ninth inning lifted Philadelphia to a 2-1 victory over the New York Mets and pinned the 14th straight pitching defeat on Roger Craig. In American League action, Washington's upstart Senators tripped Minnesota 6-5 in 13 innings, Detroit's late scoring spree downed the Los Angeles Angels 10-5 and Kansas City shaded Baltimore 2-1. Cleveland at New York and Boston at Chicago were rained out. Jtivci* Hippies am! tvilh Harold Ilraml Guess Who Was Rescued A new twist to the traditional Coast Guard rescue operations was observed Thursday afternoon on Alton Lake near Hide-A-Way Harbor at Portage des Sioux, Mo. The Coast Guard's Mobile Boarding Team boat was being towed, presumably back to its base at Piasa Harbor. Undoubtably the two members of the crew riding in the disabled craft were embarrassed. It is about time there was some reciprocation. Ski Show Set Sunday The Ski Pals of Alton will present 22 acts in a water show Sunday afternoon at Greenfield City Lake one half mile east of the city square. The show is sponsored by the Greenfield Lions Club and will begin at 2 p.m. The lake also has a swimming beach. Refreshments will be available, reported Ollie Meyer, a member of the Ski Pals. Predicted Log Race Set The Coast Guard Auxiliary will run its annual Predicted Log Race on Alton Lake Sunday Aug. 11. Skippers from the 15 or more St Louis-Alton area Flotillas will compete over a course ranging up to 25 miles strictly on their skill at dead reckoning. The skippers must predict in advance without the aid of any instruments or timepieces, using a stated numbers of engine revolutions, exactly what time they will pass several check points along the course, They must allow for wind, current, waves and any other factors in their pjedictions. It is remarkable how well some skippers know their boats. The winner wil. be the tkipper with the lowest over all percentage of error in naming the time he will pass each check point. The winner usually has an over all percentage of error less than two per cent. Make Trial Runs For the fh'St time the skippers will be permitted to run the 1) course in advance. But race offi- :ials expect it to be of little help Because water conditions nearly ilways vary from one trip to another. It takes about a week to compute all the percentages consequently the winner and runner- ups will not be named until the following Saturday at a Victory Dinner. An observer rides with each skipper to see that the rules are followed. A skipper may change his revolutions only for an emergency. If you think this is an easy rac-;, tiy estimating right to the minute of the time you wil arrive or pass land marks during your next boating ouiir.g.

Boating fans must take a course in boating, provided by the Squadron, before they may be invited to join. This writer has taken two of the Squadron's courses and learned considerably more about boating than he ever dreamed existed. It certainly gives a person wore confidence in boat operation to take one or more of the courses. Howard, Los Angeles' massive right-handed hitting outfielder, has collected eight hits in 31 trips against Milwaukee pitching; six have been homers. He went after the first pitch by lefty Bob Hendley in the spcond and fourth innings, rapping each out of the park. That gave Drysdale a 2-0 lead, and the Dodgers made it 4-0 on Ken McMullen's two-run single in the seventh. Milwaukee got its runs off Drysdale in the bottom of the seventh, the first on Hank Aaron's 27th bonier. The tall right-hander struck out 11 in boosting his record to 12-10.
