(AP Wirephoto) Barnes Upsets Ralston In National Net Play Canada Trails US By li in Cup Play DES MOINES, Iowa (AP)—Seven surprised Americans held a paper-thin lead going into today's final round of the Americas' Cup Golf matches with a group of crafty Canadians threatening to capture the trophy for the first time ever. "Wo sure didn't help ourselves any this afternoon," said U.S. 3-Way Tie In Utah Open SALT LAKE CITY (AP)—Favored Gary Player, Billy Maxwell und Don January—all tied with four-under-par (5Gs — led a bulky field of 150 golfers into the second round of the 72-hole $40,• 000 Ulah Invitational Golf Tournament today. The field will be cut to the low 70 golfers and ties following today's play. Player, the gallery favorite and fifth-leading money winner on the tour, fired a 33-33—66 Thursday in a round he called one of his best ever. But it was Maxwell who was the talk of the tournament after he smashed a four wood for a hole-in-one on the 242-yard par three 10th hole. The ball bounced once on the green, hit the pin and slid into the cup. One stroke behind the leaders with 67s were Jerry Steelsmith, Tommy Wulff and Phi! Rodgers. There were tour bunched at 68, Mason Rudolph, George Knudson, Tommy Jacobs and Gordon Jones. Three strokes behind at 69 were J)on Mawengale, Paul Bondeson and Tommy Williams, r captain Billy Joe Patton after the heavily favored U.S. team had managed only a 1 Ms-point lead In Thursday's opening round. The Canadians, meanwhile, were elated with their performance and primed to end U.S. domination of the biennial event between teams from the United States, Canada and Mexico. "We're still in there," beamed brawny Doug Silverberg, who swept past his American and Mexican opponents in singles play and who kept the Canadians within striking distance. The 30-year-old Calgary insurance executive scored two point* in the singles after teaming with Keith Alexander to pick up tw«.: points in the three-ball tests. Silvcrberg's surge and unexpected singles sweeps by Bert Tice hurst and Bill Pidlaski took up thr slack caused by the collapse ol Gary Cowan, considered Canada',finest.

The Yanks, who have never lost in six previous challenges, had 12'/j points to 11 for Canada and 3'/i for Mex ico at the halfway mark. Harris, defending national am uteur champion, whipped Luis Brauer of Mexico and tied Nick Weslock of Canada for I'/i points, the same total he and Billy Joe Patton of Morgunton, N.C., scored in three-ball play. Slkes whipped Keith Alexander of Canada 5 and 4 and Muuri- cio UrdaneUa of Mexico 5 and 3 with three straight birdies on his final holes to add two more points to the United States' total.

It is an afternoon when 2- year-old horses will fire away at almost half a million dollars. Heading the program' is the $150,000 added Arlington-Washington Futurity in Chicago, which will be worth approximately $350,000 and could finger Jhe 2-year- old champion and next year's Kentucky Derby favorite. A field of 15 colts is in prospect for this seven-furlong dash at Arlington Park, now the world's richest horse race. Ten or more 2-year-old fillies are expected for the $50,000 added Matron Stakes at Aqueduct, whjch will gross $100,000 or more. The $25,000 added World's Playground Stakes at Atlantic City is the third juvenile headliner. Mary V. Fisher's GoJ'den Ruler, undefeated in three starts, and Greentree Stable's Malicious, who has won three straight stakes, probably will be co-favorites for the Arlington Park race.

It is not true that the Senators have lost most of them. It just seems that way to Gil Hodges. Actually, the Senators have lost only 5455. But, for the rookie manager of the loth-place team, the last one must be among the most painful. It was a 3-2, 12-inning loss to New York's Yankees Thursday in which Hodges' pitchers held the Yanks to three hits for 11 innings, his infield kicked in the tying run and he lost, temporarily at least, the services of his top hitter, Chuck Hinton. Hinton was struck on the left side of the head, just below the protective helmet, by a Ralph Terry pitch. He retained consciousness, but was carried from the field on a stretcher and hos pitalized overnight. He was listed in satisfactory condition. Terry went all the way, winning his 16th against 13 losses on a 12th-inning double by Clete Boyer and a run-producing single by PROBABLE PITCHERS By THE ASSOCIATE!) PRESS .
