(AP) - R.M.

Sides, whose last triumph was in the 19M Cleveland Open, and Jamieson, at the peak of a modest five-season pro career, conquered a chilling north wind gusting up to M miles per hour for three-under-par Ms at the Sunset Ridge Country Club Thursday.

(AP) - Richard Petty has won the pole for Sunday'g Lone Star 500 at Texas World Speedway The 34-year-old Randleman. N.C. native established a one- lap clocking of 169.412 miles per hour Thursday to win the pole in the 16th race in the Winston Cup series. Petty is the reigning champion of TWS by virtue of his victory in last December's Texas 500 but ranks no better than fifth on the current Winston Cup standings despite having won more than $658,000 since 1959. Petty drove a 72 Dodge in Thursday's qualifying. He has driven it in three previous races this year without entering the winner's circle. He has four victories but they have all been in his blue Plymouth. Just as Petty drew the No. 1 slot, three of the other six drivers on the track filled the first two rows for Sunday's race. Jabbar Has Child MILWAUKEE (AP) - Star center Kareem Abdul-Jabbar of the Milwaukee Bucks has become a father, the National Basketball Association club announced Thursday. The Bucks said his wife, Habiba, had given birth to a daughter, also named Habiba, May 15. It is the couple's first child. Bobby Allison of Hueytown, Ala., was fourth out of the pits and circled the 2.5 mile high- banked oval in 167.836 miles ner hour in his 72 Chevrolet to join Petty on the first row. Bobb Isaac of Catawba, N.C., and Joe Frasson of Golden Valley, Minn., proceeded to nail down third and fourth qualifying spots in the second row. Isaac drove his '72 Dodge to a speed of 165.005 and Frasson jwas clocked at 164.305 in another 72 Dodge. Little League Score? CAPE CORAL, Fla. (AP) Texas sophomore Ben Crenshaw is probably the most explosive collegiate golfer since Jack Nicklaus came out of Ohio State in 1961. But, he's not ready to challenge the Golden Bear. "Every time I tee it up with Nicklaus and the other great pros," says the 20-year-old from Austin, "1 realize I'm not quite in their league just yet." Ben, however, does pretty well in his own league. Crenshaw eagled two of the first three holes Thursday and shot a six-under-par 66 in the NCAA Golf Championships as his Texas team rollicked to a 14- stroke lead after 36 holes of the major college event. Crenshaw won last year's NCAA individual title with a record 273 and answers a firm "Yep" when asked if it's possible to capture four straight championships. "I've got plenty of incentive to win back-to-back, even I have to beat my old buddy," said Crenshaw, slapping Longhorn teammate Tom Kite on the knee. Kite commanded the NCAA tournament through the first half, shooting arounds of 6568 for an 11-under-par 133 total on the wind-blown Cape Coral Country Club course. Crenshaw stood at 137. "The main goal for both Ben and me is to help Texas win a second straight team title," said Kite, a 22-year-old senior from Austin. "That seems well Baseball Roundup By the Associated Press The Houston Astros don't need reminders about the last time they faced the Cincinnati Reds. It was late May in Houston, and the Reds stormed to four straight wins by the unkind margins of 8-3. 9-5. 12-4, and 10-3. Thursday night the Astros returned the favor. They struck for six runs in the third inning, three on a home run by Doug Rader, and rolled to a 9-5 victory over the Reds. The win moved Houston back into first place in the National League West, one-half game ahead of Cincinnati.

"That other series (in Houston) is history now," professed Houston manager Harry Walker. "The last time we just happened to catch them when they were hot as a firecracker." Which is exactly what thc Astros were Thursday night. Houston scored two runs in the first, but the Reds went ahead with a single run in the bottom half and a pair in the second inning. Houston exploded in the third, however, turning three singles, a walk, an error and Rader's llth homer into six runs with none out. Cesar Cedeno, Houston's 21- year-old center fielder from the Dominican Republic, went four- for-four and scored three runs, and drew praise from Walker as "the most exciting young ball player I've ever seen." George Culver, 2-0, took the win for Houston, going 5 23 innings after relieving starter Dave Roberts in the second. Wayne Simpson, 4-2, took the loss. Stan flahnsen earned his 10th victory of the season for the White Sox with late help from Cy Acosta. Reserve catcher Tom Egan, batting only .175. drove home two of the Sox runs with a pair of singles. Johnny Briggs homered for thc Brewers The victory left the White Sox with an 11-18 record on the road compared to 24^ at home. The difference doesn't disturb Manager Chuck Tanner. in hand so I'll just have a little battle with Crenshaw. We fight hard between ourselves, but it's a friendly rivalry." Crenshaw's power' surfaced early Thursday on the 6,865- yard layout. He socked a 300- yard drive on the par-5 first hole and hit a 4-iron within four feet of the cup. Ben dropped the putt for an eagle. On the downwind 348-yard third hole, Crenshaw cracked a mighty drive that rolled onto the green and he sank a 30- footer for another eagle. Texas' powerhouse team stood at 15-under-par 561 to lead 12-time NCAA champion Houston by 14 shots. Florida, in third place, was another six behind. Wake Forest was a pre-tournament favorite but the Deacons barely made the halfway team cut of 602 and were 41 strokes behind Texas. Jim Simons of Wake Forest, the top amateur in the last two U.S. Opens, was well back in the pack at 73-72-145. MING STROKES by Frank Beard 60-Another Helpful Rule If your swing or stance is affected by a hole, path or mound made by a .burrowing animal, snake or bird, you are entitled to drop your ball without penalty on ground that avoids that condition. This is another rule that can save your strokes. I've even seen cases where a player's ball is up against a tree, unplayable, and the player in taking his stance is bothered by a gopher hole. He's entitled to a drop away from the tree. An hour studying the rules may well be more worth- Jockey Walter Blum b<»an 1972 with 3,679 victories. " than an hour hitting while balls.

(AP)-The Wishbone-T will be snapped more often by the defense than ever before this fall, predicts Oklahoma Coach Chuck Fairbanks. "The defenses are catching up," Fairbanks says of the triple option offense which has terrorized college football defenders for the last three years. Fairbanks, coach of the West squad in Saturday night's 12th annual Coach All-America game, said, "Coaches are becoming more knowledgeable and players have had more opportunity to work against the Wishbone. Play recognition is so important." Fairbanks believes there will be more passing in college football this season as defenses stack up against the ground- oriented attack. "1 believe there will be more involvement in the passing game," Fairbanks says. "There's more potential in passing from the formation than what meets the eye. At Oklahoma, we're going to have to change some of our blocking schemes because the defenses are catching up." He says. "Play recognition is difficult when defensing the Wishbone. We've found that other teams do better against us when they've had more than a normal amount of time to prepare for the game. The Wishbone offense as first run by Darrell Royal at the University of Texas is considerably different now. People are having to make offensive changes to try to stay a step ahead.'' Alabama Coach Bear Bryant, the East coach for the nation- 'ally televised game featuring the college 1972 crop of seniors, contends the Wishbone will always be an effective offense. Bryant says, "I don't think the defenses will ever catch up with the Wishbone.

Sikes, breaking out of doldrums that won him "only a couple of thousand dollars" this year, came up with 35-33 round with the best putting of a pro career that started after his back-to-back triumphs in the National Public Links meets of 1961 and 1962. "I visited Dutch Harrison at St. Louis last week and he helped me tremendously, especially with my driving," said Sikes.

Hogan was Pampa's outstanding pitcher this spring, compiling a 7-4 won-lost record and was one of the district's leaders in ERA. He also started at center for Pampa's district championship football team. 25 years old, and this is what happened," Sikes played the entire first nine without a par, carding four birdies, three bogeys and a double bogey. But, starting with the seventh hole, he tapped in two 20-foot putts and one of IS for birdies, Then, he started his final nine with birdie puts of 15-feet and one foot, and on the 13th hole, sank a birdie 40- footer. Jamieson, who captured headlines earlier this year with a surprise challenge in the Masters before finishing fifth, coaxed a 31-37 against the chilling gale.
