Jim Jamieson Wins Western Open By Six NORTHBROOK, III. (APl Jim JamteMi's victory in the Western Open was one of those beautiful happenings. It was his first golf tournament triumph in four years on the PGA tour and it came in the friendly confines of his home state with 2,000 followers from his native Mollne area forming the most enthusiastic army since Arnie's. His parents, an uncle, the best man at his wedding, his old pro pal, Bob Fry of the Crow Valley Country Club in Davenport, Iowa, his wife, his It-month-old son—they all were at the Sunset Ridge Country Club Sunday to see Jimmy Boy win. And nobody has won by as big a margin this year. The chunky Jamieson, who has trimmed his weight to 217 pounds, finished with a 99 for a 271 total—13 strokes under par and six strokes ahead of his nearest rival, Labron Harris. Harris charted with a closing M for 277, followed at 2N by Hale Irwln, Jim Wiechers and Bob Lunn. Five others were grouped at 211, including Tommy Aaron who was second, eight strokes behind. The largest winning margin previously this season on the tour was Lee Trevino's four- stroke victory In the Memphis Open, Jamieson, who came up from the caddy ranks at Oakwood Country Club In Mollne and won the 1M4 Chicago District Amateur and 1M7 Illinois State Amateur, pocketed 130,000 in becoming the first Illinois player to win the Western Open since Chick Evans in 1910. It boosted his 1972 earnings to |77,M3 and his total as a pro to $149,458 "I couldn't let them down, but I'll admit I was nervous Woman Attains Goal Then Throws It Over GENEVA, N.Y. (AP) - It took Bernice Cera six years to battle her way to her goal of umpiring in professional baseball. Then after seven dispute- filled innings it was all over, and the petite New York housewife dropped out of public view, unavailable for comment or explanation. Mrs. Gera resigned in tears Saturday night after serving as base umpire in a New York- Pennsylvania League game between the Auburn Phillies and Geneva Rangers—her six years of effort and legal wrangling to break baseball officiating's sex barrier apparently at an ironic end. "We don't know where she Is now," Barney Deary, chief of umpire development for pro baseball, said Sunday while watching the teams play in Auburn. During Saturday's night game the heat was turned on in the fourth inning of a seven-inning contest when Auburn Manager Nolan Campbell was evicted from the proceedings by the 40-year-old lady umpire for protesting too loudly one of her calls. '" "It really wasn't anything I said. She put me out before I had a chance," Campbell explained to the Auburn crowd Sunday. The heated moments came when Auburn's Terry Ford slid back into second base from a lead. Mrs. Gera first called him safe, then thumbed him out The Standings By Associated Press National League East WL Pittsburgh 39 21 New York 37 25 Chicago 34 26 St. Louis 29 32 Montreal 27 34 Philadelphia 22 38 West Cincinnati 38 25 Houston 30 26 Los Angeles 35 28 Atlanta 29 32 San Francisco 24 45 San Diego 21 41 seconds later. According to Campbell Mrs. Gera admitted she had been mixed up on the play. Two other contested calls followed. When it was all over and Auburn had won 4-1, Mrs. Gera walked into the office of Geneva General Manager Joseph McDonough and in a tearful voice said: "I've just resigned from baseball. I'm sorry, Joe." Then, still clad in her blue umpire's suit, she stepped into a car and was whisked away. when I started," he said of his "army." Jamieson started the final round as if it shook him up. He bogied two of the first three holes, scuffing a shot in the rough and three putting. Was his staggering eight stroke lead going to melt? "The turning point came on the long fourth," he said. "I trapped my second shot, came out six feet from the cup and dropped the putt for a birdie. Then I knew I was on my way." Jamieson birdied the seventh with a 16-foot putt from the fringe turning in 35, then birdied the 10th and llth with 10 and 18-foot taps. A sliced drive cost him a bogey at No. 12, but he reached the 535-yard 14th in two for another birdie and did a little scrambling to match par on in for a 34. Jamieson wound up the beautiful happening beautifully. He donated $2,000 to the Evans Caddy Scholarship Foundation, for which the Western Open was held. ** * Golf Scores NORTHBftOOR. III.

The rival baseball -managers-Detroit's Martin and Baltimore's Weaver—were in top form Sunday after the Orioles nipped the Tigers 2-1, capturing two of the three weekend games and moving back into a tie with Detroit atop the American League East. "Oh, yeah, we're going to win," needled Martin. "I'm more sure than,ever after seeing the Orioles." "I guess if we had won all three games he would have been surer," retored Weaver. "Tell Weaver I'll get good seats for him in the playoffs and the World Series," Martin shot back. "If he's not coming, tell him to get a TV set." "I got him nice seats the last three years," Weaver replied. "It's about time he reciprocated."

Roman Gabriel shunned cart and caddy on the hilly Lake Tahoe links. Us had to get his knees int. -hape for the grovel and grind of another pro football season with the Los Angeles Rams. Roman has had four knee operations in three years. He doesn't think it was an accident. "Defensive linemen," he says, "go more for the quarterback's knees than they ever have. And they don't call roughing the passer. Now it's taught to a player to hit a quarterback at the knees and get him out of the game, even if he's already falling and is out of the Play.* So Roman is determined to get out of the way as fast as he can. At 31, he has trimmed back to a hard 215 pounds, his weight a decade ago at North Carolina State. With his tawny black hair straight down to the shoulders and his burnt umber complexion, he looks like one cf the flat-bellied braves who used to survive High Sierra winters. From his grandeur of six feet four inches, Roman always looked indestructible against the assaults of blitzing linebackers and charging front fours. But he T s now stitched with the incisions of modern surgery. Seams were exposed after Roman had his greatest sea- mvji in 1969 and was the most valuable player in the NFL. There are 510 registered Pop Warner Junior League Football teams in California. Roman Gabriel He submitted to a dual operation to mend both the medial and lateral cartilage in his right knee. After the 1970 season, he had surgery on the right knee again to repair the lateral cartilage because the knee had become arthritic and bone chips were floating around in it. Recently, there was more of the same, same knee. "I played all of 1971," he says, "not being able to straighten out my right knee or flex it. And all the pounding on astroturf built up fibrous tissue so that I had a bump the size of a silver dollar on the front of the knee. Cortisone shots I had taken years before calcified in the back of the knee in three spots, I had an operation in late December to remove them. I went back into the hospital two months ago to have the fibrous tissue taken out. "They gave me knockout shots at 6.30 in the morning. At 8:30, time for surgery, I was still awake. They gave me another shot of novo- caine and it still didn't put me to sleep. Neither did a fourth shot during the operation. I guess I wanted to see what was going on." Roman's not quite as unflappable as he looks. "I more or less keep injuries to myself," he says. "It's tough enough playing football when you re healthy to let them know when you're not. I'll tell you what it's like to have a bad knee. Even in practice when you drop back to throw there's a pain like a knife. You come home for dinner and you have to put your leg up and then it stiffens. "In 1970, I had an operation on my right elbow to remove calcium deposits. I couldn't straighten the arm out or touch my shoulder. Last season was the first time I was booed since I was with the Rams. It was a tough year. I played with separated ribs." And yet there's no thought of retirement, though Roman is well fixed with outside interests. "I play football," he says, "because there's still a challenge for me and I enjoy it. The money is a secondary thing. I want to get in the Super Bowl. "In football, I get emotionally high because I'm the quarterback. And when things don't go right, you get emotional." Now, trudging the fairway, building himself up for the approaching training camp, Roman finds an analogy in golf. "About twice a year," he says, "when I play golf, I throw a club. But I always look first to see that it doesn't hit anybody." (NEWSPAPER ENTERPRISE ASSN.) It was Palmer's eighth consecutive victory, but Martin wasn't impressed. NATIONAL LEAGUE It's not likely to make Montreal's Tim Foil feel a whole lot better now, but Steve Carlton didn't really mean to bean him. "I'm sorry I plunked Foil on the head," said Carlton of the fourth inning pitch that precipitated a baseball free-for-all between the Montreal Expos and Philadelphia Phillies Sunday. "I was trying to get him in the ribs, but the ball got away on me." Foil bounced up off the ground and started after Carlton, signalling both dugouts to empty with Montreal Manager Gene Mauch leading the charge. He went after Carlton and wound up getting thrown out of the game when the umpires decided he had thrown the first punch in the ensuing brawl. Catcher John Bateman's fifth inning homer accounted for the only run of the day as Carlton's four-hitter blanked the Expos 10. In other National League games, St. Louis swept a doubleheader from the New York Mets 7-1 and 2-1, Pittsburgh battered Chicago 9-2, Cincinnati edged Houston 5-4 in 10 innings, San Francisco whipped San Diego 6-5 in 14 innings and Los Angeles shut out Atlanta 50. Rick Wise, the man the Phillies traded to get Carlton, tossed a four-hitter of his own as St. Louis swept a doubleheader from the Mets. Wise took the second game after Scipio Spinks doled out six hits and struck out 13 batters to win the opener. The nightcap was tied 11 until the ninth when Ted Simmons doubled, moved to third on a sacrifice and scored as ex-Met Donn Clendenon beat out an infield single. Bernie Carbo had homered earlier for St. Louis. In the opener, Lou Brock, Matty Alou, Joe Torre and Luis Melendez had two-hits apiece for the Cardinals. Muncey Wins 5th Gold Cup DETROIT (AP) - Veteran speedboat driver Bill Muncey has his fifth Gold Cup trophy and an assortment of bruises today after besting the rough, tough Detroit River course Sunday in a race in which five of the 10 boats competing against him came to grief. Muncey piloted his airplane- engine powered Atlas Van Lines I to comparatively easy wins in all three of his heats and the championship finale, turning the latter into a runaway.

MALONE cunn ^PHARMACY ,1 1 V ' (J. . n HA.'L • S - 4V- . > . COLLEGE STATION, Tex. <AP) - Richard Petty overcame all the obstacles thrown in his path to win the Lone Star 500-three yellow flags, one wreck and a jackrabbit on the backstretch. But he took command in the final M laps Sunday to blltt the field in his 1171 Dodge with an average speed of 144.115 miles per hour as scorching Texas temperatures claimed his chal- lenge.cs at Texas World Speedway. Petty, who added his fifth victory on the current NASCAR Winston Cup circuit, lost ground after one yellow flag, narrowly missed being caught during a crackup but finally pulled away from Bobby Isaac because he avoided trouble in the pits. "That was the difference between me and Isaac today," Petty said after collecting $12,120 in the 05,000 race. "I think I'm the only one who ran all day and didn't have any trouble, and that was the difference." Petty and Isaac, of Catawba, N.C., chased each other much of the afternoon as temperature* rose to 140 degrees at track level and many drivers had themselves doused with water hoses when they came into the pits. Isaac slowed in the stretch drive and was fifth, six laps behind Petty at the finish. Bobby Allison of Hueyton, Ala., was second. Coco Marlin of Columbia, Tenn., was third and Benny Parsons of Detroit, Mich., was fourth. Petty and Isaac were having one of their close-quarters duels on the 104th lap when Richard Childress of WinstonSalem, N.C., nipped his 1972 Chevrolet on the second turn. Childress was treated for bruises. "I was in the lead and Isaac was second," Petty said. "We were right beside him when the guy blew his engine. Isaac was the last one to get by." Another yellow flag cost Petty several seconds off the 13- second lead he held at the time. The yellow flag went up when Raymond Williams spun out on the third turn and a metal ob- Seagren Upset By ITS"Pole Vault GRESHAM, Ore. (AP) Premier pole vaulter Bob Seagren looked a little puzzled, throught a moment and then recalled what happened at the inaugural Rose Festival track and field meet. "Oh yeah," he said, "I was very tired in that one. I had just flown in from the East Coast.'' Seagren, representing the Southern California Striders, moments earlier was upset at not clearing the bar beyond 17 feet 64 inches. He probably didn't feel so badly when he remembered his performance at the festival inaugural meet two years ago. His best vault that day: 156> Seagren, who won Saturday's event, has vaulted 18-4'/4 this year, a pending world record. He now heads for Eugene and the Olympic Trials beginning Thursday. "I'm hoping for at least an 18-6 at the trials, but quite frankly I'd like to go higher," he said. Sweden's Kjell Isaksson shares the pending world mark of 18-4'/4. Steve Prefontaine, two-time winner of Oregon's outstanding amateur athlete award, set an American record in the 3.000-meter run.

Another yellow Hag occurred on the 60th lap when Marty Robbins blew his engine. Petty said he was able to run faster than he had expected. "The heat really didn't bother , the cars that much. It wasn't as . much of a factor as I thought it would be." LeeRoy Yarbrough left the race early to have a jackrabbit removed from his grill. "Me and Isaac saw him back there, too," Petty said. "But he was going the wrong way. Babashoff Sends Warning To Gould SANTA CLARA. Calif. (AP) — A 15-year-old challenger has sent a warning down under to Shane Gould, Australia's won-; der of the swimming world. "I think we're catching up real fast," said Shirley Babashoff Sunday after winning her third event in the Santa Clara International Swimming Meet. "But she'll get better too," the high school girl from Fountain Valley. Calif., added. "We don't expect her to stand still." Miss Gould, also 15, is the dominant figure in the sport, the world record holder at all four women's free-style distances. She made her only U. S. appearance to date in last year's Santa Clara meet,' sweeping the freestyles and setting a world mark of 4:21.2 for 400 meters. But Miss Babashoff backed up her warning with a 9:01.5, best time in the world this year, to win the 800 freestyle Sunday. Earlier in the threeday meet, she won the 200 and 100 frees. Jenny Wylie, a 14-year-old member of the Santa Clara Swim Club, won the 400 freestyle Friday with a time just 2.7 seconds off the year- old world record.
