Six Share Open Lead With First Round 71 's PEBBLE BEACH, Calif (AP) - "You brectt through the first »i« hole«." Mid young Jim Wiecheri. "You struggle through ten and then to try like the devllto finish." "It's the stud," complained Giry Player. "It's the grass," argued Orville Moody. "The poa annua on the greens comes up and bites you," said Chi Chi Rodriguez. It's none of these things, it's just a case of being afraid o( the Pebble Beach course and overly cautious in the opening round of the Open, contended Jack Nicklaus. "The course is not as tough as the scores indicate," said the Masters titleholder and prime favorite to rack up the 12th major golf championship of his career. "I think everybody is being very cautious. "Nobody wants to have that big hole. I didn't try to be cautious. It's too early to go for double bogeys.'' Nicklaus was one of a crazy quilt collection of six tied at one-under-par 71 today going into the second round of the 72nd U.S. Open championship and McLean Hires Football Coach McLEAN - William Nitcholas, 27, has been hired as head football coach and athletic director at McLean. He comes from Booker where he was head coach last season. Nitcholas previously coached Bovina. He is a graduate of Idalou High School and Sul Ross College. Nitcholas replaces Robert Langford, who has taken an assistant's positional Perryton. John Thomas Morrow, a Clarendon native and graduate of West Texas State, is McLean's new assistant coach. Morrow coached in Midland last year and was at Friona High School from 1964-70. almost everybody in the field of ISO was going around with the glazed look of a man bonged on the head with a sledgehammer. It was downright spooky. The old Pebble Beach links, with the crashing waves of the Pacific whipping up on the rocky beaches and with its gunbarrel fairways and marble top tables for greens, left them reeling after the opening round Thrusday. Tied at 71-the biggest log-jam in the opening round since !896--were the favored Nicklaus; Orville Moody, the moon-faced army sergeant who won the Open in 1969. now wheezing with hay fever; Puerto Rican Chi Chi Rodriguez, who has found new peace in running and meditation; Blond Tom Shaw, shooting an erratic round of sic birdies and five bogeys, Tennessee's Mason Rudolph, who can't see the tee without thick-lens glasses; and Kermil Zarley, whom comedian Bob Hope once introduced as "Pro on the Moon." The 71 equalled the largest score ever to lead the Open in the modern history of the game. Former winner Gary Player was tied at 72 with a group that included fellow South African Bobby Cole, Don Massengale and Cesar Sanudo. Tom Weiskopf was in a large cluster at 73. The ailing defending champion Lee Trevino and former winner Bill Casper were in a flock of more than a dozen at 74. "I feel miserable," said Trevino in a rasping voice. "I shot 74, should have shot 85 and should be in a morgue somewhere." The colorful, wisecracking Mexican-American, stricken with bronchitis and viral pneumonia, left a hospital bed in El Paso against doctor's orders to defend his crown. He stuffed himself with pills and trudged over the layout swatched in Perryton's Hargrove Signs With Rangers PERRYTON - Contract negotiations were completed this week with the signing of Perryton's Mike Hargrove by the Texas Rangers, American League baseball team. He is considered an outstanding prospect at first base. Hargrove, drafted June 7, is scheduled to report to the Ranger's rookie team in Geneva, New York this Sunday. The son of Mr. and Mrs. Dudley Hargrove, he is a spring graduate of Northwestern State College at Alva, Okla. Hargrove initially attended the college on a basketball scholarship. He started at guard for Northwestern during his freshman and sophomore years. His junior year he dropped basketball and concentrated instead on football and baseball. As a senior Hargrove played only baseball, a sport in which he lettered for four years. Last summer he played with the Great Bend semi-pro league where he compiled a .468 batting average. He is presently playing with the Liberal, Kansas B.J.'s semi-pro team. Hargrove graduated with honors from Northwestern this spring with a B.S. in physical education. He tied for all conference first baseman as a sophomore and won the position outright in his junior and senior years. Other honors include most valuable player in the Great Bend league, 1971 athlete of the year at Northwestern. mm STROKES by Frank Beard 53—Accept a Bad Shot One bad shot never deserves another. When you get in trouble, the temptation is strong to try a near-impossible recovery shot. But you'll save many shots in the long run if you learn to accept a poor shot. Give up that shot—you've lost it. What started out being a par-4 hole is now a par-5 hole. Don't take foolish risks or try or emulate one of Arnold Palmer's remarkable recoveries. For every par you make that way you'll make six double-bogeys. J know from a recent experience. At Greensboro I missed the last green and my ball was in a muddy lie. Instead of playing it safe, I tried a non-percentage shot and left myself another difficult chip. It cost me $2,000. (NEWSPAPER ENTERPRISE ASSM ) (NEXT: Putting Vision.) Enjoy Racine, This WEEK END at the "Friendly Western Track" RATON, NEW MEXICO layers of jackets and sweating from fever. Arnold Palmer, bidding for his first major title in eight years, struggled to a 77. Doug Sanders, who won his last start at Charlotte, soared to an 81. Former Masters champion charles Coody had an 82 and Frank Beard, a consistently high money winner on the tour, skied to an 85. The 6.812-yard, par 72 ocean- side course took a heavy toll although the weather was comparatively good-early morning fog burned away by a hot afternoon sun with negligible winds. Bunky Henry of Atlanta, and Russell Helwig, a pro from Westfield, N.J., each stumbled in with 88s.

His performance Thursday night helped Pittsburgh waltz back into first place in the National League East. The beefy first baseman broke out of a wicked stump with three hits and four runsbatted-in as the Pirates grabbed a rain- delayed doubleheader from the San Francisco Giants 4-1 and 97 and nosed a half-game In front of the idle New York Mets. "One night isn't going to change everything as far as the slump goes," said Robertson, who was hitless In 21 appearances before Thursday's second game. "I haven't had my timing ... and I didn't have it tonight. "But it's nice to know the fans have been behind me all the way. They were cheering me even before I got to the plate. And it's got to make you want to come through." After Robertson drove in a run with a sacrifice fly in the first game, he collected his first hit of the night with a tworun single in the first inning of the nightcap. Then he delivered a run-scoring single in the seventh. Robertson also singled in the third, keeping alive a Pirate rally that scored two runs. The Chicago Cubs defeated the San Diego Padres 10-1 in Thursday's only other National League game. In the American League, the New York Yankees defeated the Chicago White Sox 8-1; the Kansas City Royals turned back the Boston Red Sox 13-9 and the Cleveland Indians topped the California Angels 10.

In the nightcap, the Pirates wiped out a 1-0 Giants' lead with a three-run first and never trailed thereafter. Billy Williams celebrated his 34th birthday with two home runs as Chicago crushed San Diego. The Standings By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS National League East W. L. Pet.

Amarillo Hosts PH&T Competition Nine-year-old Danny Reagan, 10-year-old Tommy Laycock, 11-year-old Steve Stout and 12-year-old Eugene Cleveland will represent the Pampa area in the Official Major League Baseball Pitch, Hit and Throw competition tomorrow in Amarillo's Memorial Stadium. Winners at the district level will move up to division competition which will be in Arlington at a date to be named later. All winners are determined by scores compiled in the three events-pitching for control, hitting for distance and throwing for accuracy. At the division level the boys will be divided into two leagues-cither National or I COUPON American-determined by the league affiliation of the team whose ballpark the division competition is held. The winners from this district will be in the American League, the league affiliation of the Texas Rangers. The boys who then compile the highest scores in their league's age group will go to the All-Star game in Atlanta on July 25 to compete for the national championships. They and their parents will be the guests of major league baseball and Phillips Petroleum Co. for the trip to Atlanta. Credit for the local competition goes to members of the Pampa Optimist Club who conducted the event. though matching USC in hits at seven. The two Western powers have dominated the series over the last six years, with one or the other winning the title. They came into the eight-team, double-elimination tournament as co-favorites. A record crowd of 14,010 saw USC play its usual near flawless game and take advantage of the opposition's mistakes. Ray Scarbery allowed Arizona State, which came to the series with a .331 team batting average, a run in the second on doubles by Clint Myers and Jerry Mantlo, but was lough thereafter. Fine defensive plays by Tim Steele in right field and shortstop Roy Smalley, son of the former National Leaguer of the same name, backed Scarbery. Ken Huizenga's single, a run—scoring double by Smalley, a two-out infield error and Milt Guggia's single shoved Southern Cal into a 2-1 lead in the bottom of the second. Singles by Steele and Darly Arenstein and two walks—one intentional—added an insurance run in the seventh. Eddie Bane, who struck out a series record 17 and pitched a 10, three-hit victory over Oklahoma in second-round action Sunday, suffered the loss-his first in IS decisions.
