"My trainer (Angel Pena) did a wonderful job in getting this horse ready," Ring said after the Oak Tree.

Rounding out the field will be Karabas of England, Goodly and Grandier of France, Takeshiba-0 of Japan, Sabinus of Brazil, Hitchock of Germany and Hogarth of Italy.

Maynard sets two »> marks as Jets win Associated Press NEW YORK — Don Maynard felt like the first man to clear 17 feet in the pole vault after helping the New York Jets over another hurdle yesterday in their run at a second straight American Football League championship. "It's like doing a four-minute mile I guess, or a 17-foot pole vault," said Maynard after becoming the first receiver in pro football history to gain over 10.COO yards by catching four passes for 121 yards and two touchdowns in the Jets' 34-31 victory over Miami. Maynard's fourth reception, good for 25 yards and a touchdown that tied the score 31-31, gave him a 'totalof 10,061 yards. His-first touchdown, on a 42-yard toss from Joe Namath, was his 82nd in the AFL and set a league record. He also caught a pass from running back Matt SneU for a two-point conversion, Scott schedules ring clash with Jackson SEATTLE (AP) - Middleweight Fraser Scott, just off a disputed loss to champion Nino Benvenuti in Naples, Italy, fights Prince Jackson of Portland, Ore., Nov. 13 in the Seattle Arena.

ATLANTA, Ga. - Guard Walt Hazzard scored 23 points here last night to lead the Atlanta Hawks to a 125-113 National Basketball Association victory over the Seattle Super-Sonics. It was the third straight .win for the Hawks, who used 53.3 per cent field goal shooting to post their sixth victory in nine-starts. Seattle suffered its-seventh setback in eight games. • • Hazzard, who also had, nine assists, was one of three Hawks 'with more than 20 points as the Atlantans.had seven of their eight players, in double figures. .'

BOBEGER Devils dispel doubts can't win big ones c? limed recap Same. < p.m. avis Gregor, Hazzartf Hudson Newmark Ir.?? v| » -^ -ttm [ggls-Aflanta 29, Seattle 14. Technical 1/101, ARIZONA STATE'S Sun Devils proved beyond any doubt Saturday night that they CAN win the big ones. After early season losses to Oregon State and Utah the talk started flowing again about A-State and the big ones that got away. We've always felt that was a bad rap anyway. It's true the Devils have lost some big ones, but they've won some big ones, too. Last year's rousing victory over Arizona in the season finale was no small matter. And though they're usually far outmanned, the Devils have compiled an outstanding record against intersectional competition. In terms of national recognition, few games have been as important as this year's season opener against Minnesota. Maybe the Gophers aren't a national power at the moment, but they proved with their 85-8 victory over Iowa Saturday that they're not all bad. Saturday's 30-14 victory over the very good Wyoming team was one of the best all-around efforts in A-State history. And it was a remarkable job of coaching. Frank Rush and his talented staff of assistants worked tirelessly in their two weeks of preparation for the Cowboys. The 'Pokes have very few flaws, but the ASU staff found them and the Devils exploited them to the fullest. After getting an early lead, the Devils refused to sit on it, as so many teams have tried against Wyoming with disas* trous results. . The Devils kept the throttle open, putting the ball in the air 45 times de- spite the fact that they led from box to wire. They rolled up 412 yards total offense against a team that had permitted just 192 per game going into the contest. And the Devil defense was brilliant, allowing just 14 net yards rushing to a team'that had averaged 182 yards per , game on the ground. Devil defenders intercepted five passes,, the most anybody ever has swiped from the Cowboys, and swarmed in to drop Wyoming passers for 'losses on , nine occasions. ! . Rush's pre-game evaluation was right • -Jon target. He said the Devils could ' score, despite Wyoming's defensive reputation. ; He said the Devils could win if they :; could find a way to stop Wyoming's balanced offensive attack, and that's just ; what they did, ; He also said a healthy Cal Demery and Mike Branson were the keys to A-State's offensive attack. They were -healthy, and all they did was snag 14 passes for 255 yards between them. i ' . . There can be little doubt in the mind of anyone who saw ASU's one-point loss to Utah that a healthy Demery and Brun- 1 son would have turned the tide in that one. But even with that blemish on their record, the Devils are very much in contention for their first Western Athletic ;Conference crown ever. They did WAC football in general a big favor, turning a Wyoming runaway into a three-team struggle that's sure to stimulate interest in these parts, Kaiser Open halted " " ....... darkness playoff i V s •- " by Associated Press NAPA, Calif. — Darkness halted a sudden death playoff for the top prize in the $140,000 Kaiser International Open golf tournament yesterday, and Jack Nicklaus, Bill Casper and George Archer will resume play this morning. Don January, a leathery Texas veteran, also was involved in a four-way tie for the top spot with a 72-hold score of 273, but managed only a par on the first extra hole while Nicklaus, Archer and Casper got birdie fours. Darkness forced a halt at that point — the first time in many years such a situation has existed — and tournament officials were forced to schedule the remainders of the playoff beginning at 9 ' "" ~ ................. Nelsen hurls 5 TD passes M. to pace win Associated Press CLEVELAND —Quarterback Bill Nelsen threw five touchdown passes — two each to Paul Warfield and Gary Collins—to lead the Cleveland Browns to a 42-10 National Football League victory over the previously unbeaten Dallas Cowboys yesterday. The Browns capitalized on three fumble recoveries and a pass interception to score four of their touchdowns. The win enabled the Browns to retain the National Football League's Century Division lead with a 5-14 record. Dallas leads the Capitol Division with a 6-1 mark. Walt Garrison fumbled on the Dallas 48-yard line early in the first quarter, and Brown linebacker John Garlington recovered. On the next play—the first of the game for the Browns—Nelsen threw to Warfield for the touchdown. Craig Baynham fumbled the next kickoff, and Alvin Mitchell recovered for the Browns on the Dallas 12. On the third down Nelsen hit Collins with an 11- yard scoring pass. After Mike Howell's sixth pass interception of the season early in the second quarter, the Browns moved 70 yards in seven plays to score. A pass interference call on an end zone pass intended for Collins gave the Browns the ball on the Dallas one, and Ron Johnson went the final yard to make it 21-0. The Cowboys, who had beaten the Browns in their last three regular season meetings, finally scored on a 14-yard field goal by Mike Clark after Mel Renfro intercepted a Nelsen pass and ran it back 41 yards.

January charged in with a 66, Casper had a 67 and Archer, the 6-foot-6 Masters champion, rolled in a five-foot putt on the final hole of regulation play for a birdie that clinched him a share of the lead with a 69. January wap short of the green in four, chipped up to one foot and made it for a par. Then came Buffalo Bill, a two-time U.S. Open champion, who carefully lined up an 18-footer and dropped it for a bird. "I didn't know you could see that far," quipped Nicklaus, who tried to sight his 16 footer in the gathering gloom. He did —and made the putt for another bird. Archer their rolled in an eight-footer and a halt was called. Nicklaus rajji afoul on the back nine, taking bogeys from traps on the llth and 13th holes, and failing to get a bird on the three closing holes, all relatively easy. ; : Casper and January each birdied two of the last three, and Archer saved his dramatic effort for the last one.

Cook, who did not play in three of four straight Bengal losses, rifled two touchdown passes to Chip Myers and the Bengal defense came up with four interceptions and a fumble recovery to end the Raiders' unbeaten streak of 15 games. Myers made two spectacular catches for 35 and eight-yard touchdowns as the Raiders lost their first game this year. Myers caught only one pass in the Bengals' first seven games. His first score came after Fletcher Smith picked off one of four interceptions Daryl Lamonica threw. Later in the second period Jesse Phillips sped 83 yards—longest run in the AFL this season—to the. Oakland 10. Three plays later Myers wrestled the ball from Raider Willie Brown in the end zone for a 24-0 lead and ended a four-game losing streak. Lamonica rallied the Raiders for 14 fourth-quarter points but it was too late for the last of the unbeaten AFL squads. Hewritt Dixon, just activated by Oakland this week, fumbled at the Bengal 15 and Ken Riley recovered to snuff out a Raider comeback in the final period, Lamonica had brought Oakland to within 14 points, passing nine yards to Fred Biletnikoff and 43 yards to Warren Wells before Dixon's fumble.
