Boat Fires Ten boats were destroyed by fire on Illinois waterways last year and fire and explosions are listed as a significant cause of injuries among boaters according to the Department of Conservation. The possibility of the flash fires and explosions is greatly reduced with the proper ventilation of boats. Holds or compartments on boats make natural chambers to reain highly explosive gas oline fumes so get ventilation Into those areas after you are done fueling. Among Coast Guard recpm- mendations is that all compartments should be closed when fueling and the fuel hose nozzle should be grounded to a metal section of the intake line to prevent static electricity sparks. Then all compartments should be thoroughly ventilated after fueling and all compart ments, tank areas and machinery should be checked for fumes. Fuel lines and bilges should be clean and extra fuel should be carried hi the proper container.

"I'd like to be the best putter on the tour," Archer says. "A fellow like that can make the most money." The fast-talking Californian already is rated one of the best putters around and showed some of his magic Friday by shooting a sizzling six-under par "l.' That gave Archer, at 6-foot-6 the tallest touring pro, a 36-hole total of 139 and a one-stroke lead over Tommy Aaron in the $110,000 Cleveland Open Golf Tournament. "I think Bob Charles is the best putter around, but some people think I'm better. I don't agree but this was the best I putted in quite awhile. "In last week's Canadian Open, I was pulling all my putts and I decided my elbows were ;oo far away from my body. So [ made an adjustment," A barrage of six birdies with the help of his accurate putter had Archer in good positions for a run at the $22,000 first prize. He already owns two tournament victories—at Pensacola and New Orleans—and Is the •bird ranking money<winner with 86,638. The chilly weather has not at feeted Archer's play. He's need ed only 63 putts In two rounds on the fi.742.yard Lakewood Country Club layout. Winning won't be easy. Aaron came in with a hot 66 Friday and South American Roberto Devicenzo and Californian Dave Stockton were only two strokes back. Both Devicenzo and Stockton carded identical 69-68-137s. Still in contention only three behind the leader were defending champion Gardner Dickinson; rookie Bob Dickson, Wayne Yats, Don January and Rives McBee. At 139 were Fred Marti, Dave Man* and South African Bobby Cole while Roy Pace, Dale Douglass, Frank Beard and Dan Sikes stood at 140. Glamour boys Arnold Palmer and Lee Trevino were back in the pack. Trevino, brash U.S. Open king, posted a 61 Friday for a 143 while Palmer also shot even par 71 following a disastrous 75 Thursday. He was at 146 and barely survived the cut. Britain's Tony Jacklin, first round leader after a torrid 66, ran into bogey trouble and skied to a 75. He was in a nine-way tie at 141.

"Everybody in Russia knew he had the world's most powerful service. It's still fantastic even now." Metreveli shattered Gonzales' dream of winning Wimbledon at age 40.
