(AP) — Hale Irwin and Tommy Aaron had high hopes and .a share of the lead in the $200,000 USI Golf Classic—but Lee Trevino had a glint in his eye.and a warning: "The legs are coming back," The British Open champ said after two rounds of the rich event. "I'm getting stronger every day. I can feel it. "Two rounds to go? I'm not that far back. If I shoot a fin, 66 or maybe 67 I'm still in good position to win it." The flamboyant Trevino, almost knocked out of this event by a virus attack early in the week, rallied for a ihree-under-par 69 and 143 after two rounds. That put him seven strokes back of the „ co-leaders but Trevino still contended he was in shape to take tbe $<TG,000 first prize.."This is a funny game. I had 74 on the first round, but Pete Brown shot 76 on the first round and won two years ago at San Diego. No reason I can't do the same." said Trevino, the pre-tourney favorite. Irwin matched the day's best round on the 7.212 yard Pleasant Valley Country Club course with a 67 and tied the veteran Aaron for the 36 hole load at 136, eight under par. Aaron had a 69. One stroke back were Lee Elder, 67. and Australian Bruce Devlin, 69. tied at 137. Rookie John Mahaffey. 67, was alone at 138, with Frank- Beard. Mike Ueasor, Rick Massengale and John Schlee at 139. Jack Nicklaus, winner of five titles and §240.000 already this season, Arnold Palmer and Gary Player are not competing. Neither is George Archer, twice a winner over Aaron in playoffs earlier this year. Irwin. a 27-year-old former collegiate champion and one- lime all-conference football player at Colorado, had the lead alone until he made a bogey six on the final hole late in the day and dropped back into a lie. i..u ah UiifiMin, San Fraiii i-ro (Jianls is out al SIH-- -I.M! .'.-. lie N|i ( ! jifuil Uisl Ir\iii;; to sii'al in (ith inning f ..uiu ;,iiii Si.

The win—that was if. It was the bluest win of my career. Jl was really sweet." The St. Louis Cardinals' rookie right-hander, who had stuml)l(.'cl along lo five straight defeats since being called up from Tulsa of the T r i p I e - A American Association, finally found the groove—although ' he needed his bat a.s well as his arm to record his first major league victory. He also needed Diego Segui. Durham singled in the third inning and came around on singles by Lou Brock and Ted Sizemore. In the fifth his second major league homer gave him the edge he needed to turn back .the San Francisco Giants 3-1 Friday night. Elsewhere around the National League, Houston e d g e d Philadelphia 4-3, Cincinnati walloped New York 8-2, Pittsburgh beat San Diego 4-2, Chicago shut. out Los Angeles 5-0 and Montreal defeated Atlanta 4-3 in 11 innings. "No," Durham replied when asked about his hitting prowess that has given him B.v Associated Press At long last this may be the year the Buffalo Bills _' shuck tjieir losing .ways and become a contender** in the National Football League. The Bills, who haven't had a winning season since 1966 and had a dismal 1-13 record last year, provided some evidence Friday night that the tide may have turned for them. They upset the Minnesota Vikings 21-10 in one of two NFL exhibition games that ushered 117 a busy weekend of 13 games involving all 26 NFL clubs. In the other game, the Washington Redskins whipped the Philadelphia Eagles 34-10. "I'm not used lo this, you know," commented owner Ralph Wilson of the Bills who visited the dressing room after the game in Buffalo, "Coming in here, shaking hands and smiling." With Lou Saban back as head coach his "new look" Bills indicated they will mostly run the ball. "The last two years we were always going for the one big play," said quarterback Dennis Shaw. "Now we're just grinding away." ' Shaw attempted only nine passes, but completed five of them for 131 yards. Three of the five were for touchdowns, a 45-yarder to Haven Moses in the first quarter, a one- yard toss to 0. J. Simpson in the second and a 20-yarder to Edgar Chandler in the fourth period. Bob Lee, who went all the way at quarterback for the Vikings, ran eight yards for the Viking touchdown. No reason was given why Fran Tarkenton did not get into the game at QB for Minnesota. Veteran quarterback Bill Kilmer passed for two touchdowns and had a third nullified because of a penalty in leading the Redskins over the Eagles in the nation's capital. Kilmer threw TD passes of 46 yards to George Nock and nine yards to Clifton McNeil. His 32-yarder to Jerry Smith Avery has his work cut out was called back. Sonny Jurgensen passed for another Redskin score, a 28-yarder to Bob Brunei in the last period. A 15-yard pass from Pete Liske to Garry Ballman and a 29-yard field goal by Tom Dempsey gave the Eagles a brief lead in the second period before the Redskins pulled away. Seven exhibitions are scheduled tonight, headlined by Oakland at Los Angeles which will be nationally televised over NBC In the other games San Francisco is at San Diego, Miami at Cincinnati, Denver at St. Louis. Green Bay at Houston, Pittsburgh at Atlanta 'and Dallas af New Orleans. Chicago nlays at New England Sunday afternoon, along with the New York Giants vs. the New York Jets at New Haven, Conn, and Cleveland vs. Detroit at Ann Arbor, Mich.

The American blacks indicated they might not compete in a ••united stand with our African brothers" if white- r u 1 e d Rhodesia is permitted to participate in the 20th Olympiad.

Durham's belt is 'incidental' SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — "He was a first baseman and they made him a pitcher—I think I'll put him back at first." is St. Louis Cardnials' manager Red Schoendinst tribute to rookie pitcher Don Durham. Schoendienst, of course, was kidding. Durham, a 23-year- o 1 d right-hander from Yosemite, Ky., doesn't do too badly on the mound either, as evidenced by his 3-1 victory over the San Francisco Giants Friday night. Durham, who had dropped his first five major league decisions since being promoted from Tulsa last month, was a virtual one-man gang with a home run, a single and two runs scored. Durham, now 1-5, entered the seventh with a four-hitter and a 2-1 lead before Diego Segui took over and pitched' 2 2-3 innings of hitless relief for his sixth save. "The home run was incidental to the win," declared Durham. "Believe me, getting my first major league win is my biggest thrill ever. It's especially sweet after that ragged 0-5 start. "I had a few tough breaks in my previous games," he says, "but I felt a lot stronger tonight. The cooler weather here helped me. I felt loose and wasn't sapped of my strength." Durham, who batted .418 his final season at Western Kentucky University as a pitcher- first baseman, singled in the third inning and scored on Ted Sizemore's single. He homered off loser Jim Willoughby, 2-1, in the fifth, giving him a string of five straight hits, including his second major league homer. Durham forced a runner in the seventh, dropping his average to .556. "The homer didn't really surprise me,'.' the rookie offered. "It was a hanging slider and I was looking for it. I never was a power hitter, but I did have one homer at Tulsa this season." Segui, who was bypassed by the Giants on the waiver list before joining St. Louis from the Oakland A's, worked out of a bases-loaded jam in the seventh and retired eight of the 10 batters he faced. "I was lucky, but it's better to be lucky than good sometimes," said Segui. "it's tough in this league because there are so many artificial turfs. Anything hit into the ground has a chance." The Giants, who played the Cardinals in the second game of the series today, had few bright spots. Ken Henderson extended his batting streak to 15 games with a run-scoring single in the sixth. Budke, Hill in finals ST.
