TUESDAY, JULY 9, 1968 ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH CARNOUST1E, Scotland (AP) • Bill Casper gave the iBtiS British Open Golf Championship the Garho treatment and said today thit this might be the way t6 tune up fop a title every professional in the world envies. The 37*year-old San Diego, Calif., professional who has won more th*i» a quarter of a million dollars on the American circuit In the past two years, approached Wednesday's 'opening of the 72-bole contest in the loneliest ma.tfer possible. Caspar went around Carnoustie's fedrsome 7,252-yard, par-72 TALKING ABOUT THE DOME — Three American League All-Stars talk over with newsman their reaction to the Astrodome.

MEXICO CITY (AP) - The Olympics Organizing Committee announced Monday it expects to receive all the buildings of the Olympic Village, where athletes will be housed, before July 31 from the National Bank of Works and Public Services, the organization charged with construction. The committee announced six buildings already are finished. Lonely Figure Is Bill Gasper 260 Years On Murder, Rape Raps HOUSTON, Tex. (AP) - Philip Ray Allen, 27, of Houston drew prison sentences totaling 260 years Monday. District Judge Dan Walton imposed the sentences after Allen pleaded guilty of murder, rape, and two counts of assault to murder and burglary. Allen was accused of breaking into the apartment of the John Robert Jones family last September, slashing to death Richey Leona Jones, 8, raping her mother, 28, and attempting to murder both the mother and father. Allen received 99 years each on each plea to counts of murder and rape, 25-year terms on each of the two assault to murder counts and 12 years on the 'burglary count. layout by himself Monday. "I difloovered the course," he said quietly. Before that, he went to two Sunday services of the Latter Day Saifts in Dundee, as a recent convert to Mormonlsm. On Saturday he addressed a Latter Day Saint's youth meeting. While none of this seems to have anything to do with golf, Casper Is convinced It has. On top of that, he said he needs such interim breaks to keep him steady, nerveless and knee. The bookmakers must be Impressed. Without any kind of practice round or scores worth talking about, Casper still is rated as at 5-1 for the title, just behind Jack Nlcklaus, the 9-2 favorite. The rating is remarkable when one considers that Casper never has played Carnoustle, never has competed in the British Open, and is somewhat of a stranger to British golf except for Ryder Cup appearances. If Casper, straight from tee to green and one of the really great putters, says he has discovered the Carnoustie layout, the bookies might turn out to be more than right. MONTREAL (AP) — Canada will seni a team of 150 athletes and 30 officials to the Olympic Games in Mexico City in Octo ber, it was disclosed Monday. The squad will be sent in three sections.

Kansas City Chiefs Have Many Worries KANSAS CITY (AP) — Kansas City has more question marks and more competition for positions than any time in the past five years. But the Chiefs might bid strongly to regain the American Football League cahmpionship. "This competition is the greatest tonic in the world," said Coach Hank Strain as he prepared for the opening of rookie camp Wednesday at Liberty, Mo. "This should juice everybody up." Stram is confident he has the talent to fill all eight question mark positions, with a potent mixture of rookies, taxi squad graduations and two trade acquisitions—running back Wendell Hayes and cornerback Gol- die Sellers, both of Denver. 'We surely could win back the title if these people come through," Stram said. "We have whole bunch of key positions, but we have the ability at each one. I'm hoping the competition will produce better depth and more quality players over-all than we've ever had." Until recently, it appeared Kansas City had excellent backfield depth. "Then we lost three backs in about a week," Stram said. "You never can have too much." Bruce McLenna was killed in a freak auto accident, Gene Thomas was traded and rookie Robert Holmes of Southern U., was drafted by the military. "We still have Mike Garrett, :urtis McClinton, Bert Coan and Hayes, but we need one more in case any one of them is lurt," the coach said. Five of the highly competitive spots are on defense. It is Aaron Brown, 265, VS. Gene Trosch, 277, at end; former end Chuck D1 US — Lyntoo B.

"For seconds that seemed more like minutes, the bear and faced each other," said the Brookfield, ill. fisherman. '"Was I scared? You bet was/' said Buesk telling of bis experience. "I was too scared to run, There was that big bla brute with mouth open standing between me and the safety of the cabin.
