Teammate Bonnier Killed Graham Hill Wins 24 Hours AtLe Mans LE MANS, France (APi the trees near the "Indianapolis Bend" on the Le Mans 24-hour Auto Race circuit •re sheared off near the ground torM yards. The scythe was the hurtling fellow Lola sports car of veter- M Swedish driver Joakim Bonder, who died instantly in the treckage. An instant's error in trying to MIS a slower car ended a 24- year career at the heights of Mto racing and cast a pall over he victory, eight hours later, of Hi old teammate, Graham Hill, n the classic race Sunday. Bonnier, founder and only jresident of the Grand Prix Drivers Association and leader if the campaign for increased •fety on circuits and in cars. »as killed on a stretch of road ipecially widened and lined •Ith barriers just for this •ace—but on d section yet to be improved, It was Bonnier's 13th time here. A member of a Swedish publishing family, he was, with Hill, the last of the old guard drivers who raced against such men as Juan-Manuel Fangio. Alberto Ascari, Mike Collins and the Marquis de Portago. And Bonnier was still driving and capable of leading a top race like Le Mans, as he did early Saturday. He had won a four-hour race here last March and held the track record. Hill and Bonnier were close friends from their days together in the British Racing Motors team in 1960. The Matra team kept the news of Bonnier's death from Hill and his French teammate, Henri Pescarolo, until after they brought their Matra-Simca 670 across the line for the first French victory here since Louis Rosier won in a Talbot in 1950. Baseball Roundup By Associated Press AMERICAN LEAGUE NATIONAL LEAGUE It is a simple fact that running is the fastest way to get around on a baseball field. And the Chicago White Sox have never questioned that axiom. Always a speed-oriented ball club, the Sox have, however, made an important discovery this season. They've added the home-run trot to their running repertoire and found.that you can make it home a lot more leisurely that way. The Sox socked half a dozen home runs Sunday en route to a 1-4. 5-4 doubleheader sweep over Milwaukee that moved them within 34 games of Oakland in the American League's West Division. The Athletics had their eight-game winning itreak ended by Detroit 3- S on Bill Freehan's ninth-inning homer. Elsewhere in the American League Sunday, Kansas City 4iut out New York 1-0. Baltimore trimmed Texas 3-1. Minnesota took Cleveland 5-3 and Boston whipped California 8- I. Dick Allen led Chicago's long Mil attack with two homers in the opener, his 10th and 11th of the season. Ed Herrmann. Mike Andrews and Luis! Alvarado ilao connected. Three of the miners came in the third in- ling as the Sox scored four .imes. In the .second game, the Brewers scored four runs, three rf them unearned, in the sec- md inning. Pat Kelly got half of hem back with a fifth inning .wo-run homer. Doubles by Carlos May and Bill Melton shaved another run off the lead n the sixth and then singles by telly and May sandwiched iround a stolen base tied it in he seventh. In the ninth, George Scott's wo-base throwing error on an ittempted sacrifice put the Sox n business and May's bases- aided single—his fifth hit of the lay—delivered the winning run. Freehan cut short an Oakland •ally with a heads-up defensive ilay in the top of the ninth in- ling, then pounded Ken Holtz- nan* first pitch for a leadoff Miner in the bottom half of the ming to move Detroit past the i'l. Freehan picked Ollie Brown If second base, running past he pitcher's mound and almost .11 the way to shortstop with the '•II before tossing to Ed Irinkman for the putout. Freehan clouted his third omer of the season to beat loltzman, 9-4. The Tigers had ed the score an inning earlier 'hen Aurelio Rodriguez led off >ith a triple and scored on Tony aylor's sacrifice fly. Dick Drago scattered five its. outduelling Steve Kline as ansas City shut out the Van- set Drago and Kline were locked i a scoreless battle until the •venth inning when the Royals jnched singles by Lou Pi- iella. John Mayberry and mos Otis for the game's only in. Dave Johnson drove in two m with a homer and double as altimore trimmed Texas. Minnesota got home runs om Jim Nettles. Jim Kaat and tb Darwin to whip Clevend. Darwin's homer snapped I eighth-inning tie. Nettles' •other. Craig, homered for cveland. Carlton Fisk's sixth-inning «ner broke a tie and Boston •nt on to whip California. The met gave the Red Sox a 5- lead and they added three ore runs in the seventh on jtch hits by Danny Cater and Nig Griffin and a sacrifice fly 'Tommy Harper. Notre Dame's 10-game foot- U schedule will end Nov. 25 Ml a game at Southern Call- There's no place like home— except if you're the Cincinnati Reds. Then it doesn't matter where you play. "I really can't explain our recent success on the road," says Cincinnati Manager Sparky Anderson. "We're just playing so well now that we'd win anywhere, home or away." He's not kidding. The National League's king of the road showed a fancy 11-1 record on their just-completed trip. The ultra-successful swing powered the Reds to the top of the West. Cincinnati began the trip May 29 in Houston, three games off the pace in third place. Coupled with Los Angeles' 7-5 loss to the Pittsburgh Pirates Sunday, the Reds improved their first- place margin to one game over the Dodgers. Coincidentally, the Pirates' victory cut into New York's lead as the Mets dropped to a half- game advantage in the East by losing 4-2 to the Houston Astros. Like Cincinnati, Pittsburgh has been one of the hottest teams of late—winning 21 of 26 games. Elsewhere i.i the National League, the Philadelphia Phillies defeated the Atlanta Braves 3-1; UK Sin Diegcr Padres whipped the St. Louis Cardinals 4-3 in 10 innings and the Chicago Cubs beat San Francisco 4-0 in the first game of a doubleheader before dropping the nightcap 3-1. Cincinnati spanked 16 hits, scoring often and early to beat Montreal. It's been their custom on this 12-game trip, where the Reds averaged almost seven runs a game. The hitting display made it easy for ace Gary Nolan, who won his eighth victory in nine decisions this season with a dazzling three-hitter. Johnny Bench, the heart of the Cincinnati power, drilled four hits and knocked in three runs to give him 44 RBIs for the year. The Pirates rode Roberto Clemen te's two-run homer in the seventh to victory over the Dodgers, who lost their third game in the last five. Clemente's poke broke a 44 tie. then the star right fielder singled home the Pirates' final run in the ninth. Pittsburgh overcame three Los Angeles homers, including inside-the- park shots by Manny Mota and Willie Davis. Cesar Cedeno drove in three runs, including two on a home run in a decisive three-run seventh, to pace Houston past New York for the sagging Mets' fourth loss in five games. Steve Carlton scattered eight hits, pitching Philadelphia over Atlanta as the Phillies scored the winning run on a wild pitch in the fourth inning. Philadelphia broke a scoreless tie with two runs in the inning, one coming on Tim McCarver's single and the other when Willie Montanez raced home from third on Ron Reed's wild pitch. Derrell Thomas' run-scoring single in the 10th inning pulled San Diego from behind. The Padres, down 3-1 going into the ninth inning tied the game on consecutive home runs by Nate Colbert and Larry Stahl. Bill Hands pitched a five- hitter as Chicago dealt San Francisco a record eighth- straight defeat—and made Juan Marichal a 10-game loser—in the opener of their doubleheader. It was the first time that the Giants had dropped eight in a row since they moved West from New York in 1951. Fran Healy's double and rookie Damaso Blanco's run- scoring single keyed a two- run sixth and Ron Bryant pitched a five-hitter as San Francisco won the second game. It was a "horrible shock" and "sad that my first win here in 10 attempts should be in these circumstances,"Hillsaid. < Those who were there gave varying versions of the accident in which Bonnier, 42. died. But it was clear that he was attempting to pass a Ferrari driven by Florian Vetsch of Switzerland at a kink .in the track where the drivers usually had the accelerator on the floorboards, traveling at about 170 miles an hour. Vic Elford of Britain, driving an Alfa Romeo, said that Bonnier had just passed him. The way Elford reconstructed it, Bonnier was looking for an opening on the right of the Ferrari and the two cars touched. Bonnier's Lola skidded out of control onto the left side of the track where it hit a guard rail and flew out toward the trees lining the track. For the organizers, who again got the 300,000 plus crowd that makes Le Mans one of the biggest single sports events in the world, the problem remains. Do the fans come to see the exotic, thundering sports specials, or do they want to see how cars they could drive on the roads will stand up to 24 hours of racing? Next year may tell. And by next year, the trees near the "Indianapolis Bend" will have grown again. Napoles TK's Pruitt In Two MONTERREY, Mexico (API — "After the fight started, I knew it wouldn't last 10 rounds," Jose Napoles said. It lasted less than two. And when Saturday night's bout was over, Napoles had retained his world welterweight boxing title with a technical knockout over No. 1 challenger Adolph Pruitt of St. Louis. "My muscles were too tight and I couldn't relax," said Pruitt. who had his right eye closed and suffered a deep cut over his left eye before referee Octavio Mayran halted the scheduled 15-rounder at 2:10 of the second round. "And I .made mistakes." the 32-year-old loser added. tyapolies agreed. "He telegraphed all his punches witn his body," said the 31-year-old Cuban-born champion. It was Napoles' seventh successful title defense and the 146- pound winner, who collected $70.000. raised his professional ring record to 62-4-1. with 42 knockouts. Pruitt, 24 pounds lighter than the champ, earned $10.000 in his first title fight as his record fell to 42-10-2. "The champ was very sharp with his punching," Pruitt said after the bout, before a capacity crowd of 13,800 in Monumental Plaza. "He's a great boxer and didn't give me a chance." There were no knockdowns before the fight was halted. It was the second time Napoles had beaten Pruitt. In 1965 in Mexico City. Napoles won in three rounds as Pruitt suffered a shoulder injury.

Average players have a dangerous tendency to start projecting the total score for the round when they still have several holes to play, especially if they're playing better than usual. They may think to themselves that they have only to bogey the last four holes to break 95 for the first time this year, or something like that. It's a fatal diversion. They usually shoot over 100. Play each hole as it comes and your final score will take care of itself betted than it will otherwise. (NCWSPAPH ENTERPRISt ASSN.) (NSXT: Heel and Toe.) Trevino Vows He'll Go To Pebble Beach Wed. EL PASO, Tex. (AP) - It appears that even viral pneumonia won't be able to keep down irrepressible Lee Trevino for long. The Merry Mexican of the fairways vows he's going to leave Providence Hospital here in time to reach Pebble Beach for Wednesday's start of the Lefors Hires Football Coach LEFORS-Lefors High School has announced the hiring of Leonard Tolbert as head football coach at LHS. Tolbert will take the place of Scott Dunham who resigned this spring to accept an assistant coaching position at Pampa High School. Tolbert comes to Lefors from Paducah where he was head coach last fall. Previously he was junior high and assistant high school coach at Paducah for one year and coach at Notre Dame High School in Wichita Falls, also for one year. Tolbert was an all-state football player at Breckenridge and graduated from Midwestern Univ. in Wichita Falls. He is married and has two children. U.S. Open Golf Tournament. Nursing supervisor Jane Beland told callers late Sunday night, "He's doing very well and seems to be improving. He still hopes to get out Tuesday.'' Mrs. Beland added, however, that she wasn't sure his doctor would let the defending U.S. Open champion depart quite that soon. Trevino entered the hospital Saturday and Dr. Robert May said he was troubled by what the physician described as "early stages of viral pneumonia and infected sinusus." Dr. May said he nevertheless expected Trevino to be up and around by Wednesday. Complaining of what he described as an attack of flu, Trevino flew home Friday from Philadelphia, where he gave up plans for a final tuneup for the U.S. Open in the IVB-Phila- delphia Golf Classic. The doctor examined him and ordered Lee to the hospital at once. Tevino conceded that he might be "a little weak when I get out of here." but said he was using springs and weights for his legs and exercising in the hospital. "If the doctors can clear my chest and lungs, I will have the strength to play," he promised. PHILADELPHIA (AP) - J.C. Snead gets a little testy when you bring up the fact that he's the nephew of veteran golfing great Sam Snead. The subject came up again Sunday after J. C. won the ISO,000 first prize in the 1150,000 IVB Philadelphia Golf Classic. Someone asked J. C. if he felt he played in the Shadow of Uncle Sam, who won every major golf title but the U.S. Open. "I don't care what they say," J. C. snapped. "I won. I beat everybody who was here." That he did. Snead shot an unspectacular fourth round par 36-36—72 over the 6,708-yard Whitemarsh Valley Country Club for a 72 hole total of six under par 282. He beat Chi Chi Rodriguez by one stroke. Snead had rounds of 70-71-69-72, and Rodriguez 71-68-70-74 for a 283. Dick Rhyan, who had qualified for. only four tournaments this year, finished in a tie for third with Jim Jamieson, leader of the first two rounds. Each had 285, with Rhyan shooting a two under par 70 and Jamieson *** Golf Scores PHILADELPHIA (API - Plul Ktrct H* IHMC* •iMfcMi fmtfl* Id UK f IK.- IN IVB-PlllliMHiu 0«1f CUiik wi lk« t.m-ju4.
