La Crosse .bone Sunday, February 10, 1974—2! Yancey Leads Hope Classic PALM DESERT, Calif (API — Bert Yancey, playing out of the range of the national television cameras, managed a three-under-par 69 and clung to a three-stroke lead against the challenge of Hubert Green Saturday in the fourth round of the $160,000 Bob Hope Desert Golf Classic. Yancey, who played at Bermuda Dunes while the TV cameras and most of the massive gallery congregated around the celebrity amateurs at Indian Wells, put together a 273 total for 72 holes, 15 under par. Green, also playing in the bright, warm desert sun at Bermuda Dunes, was in front of Yancey and pulled to within one stroke before Yancey birdied his last two holes. Green, a lanky, laconic man from Birmingham. Ala , also had a 69 for a 276 total going into Sunday s final round, in this five- day, 90-hole event. The last round will be played at the headquarters course, Indian Wells Johnny Miller, the skinnv blond who holds the U.S. Open crown and has won three titles already this season, moved into contention with a 69 at Indian Wells-just missing an eagle on the last hole—and was six strokes back and alone in third place at 279. John Mahaffey. the baby-faced winner of the Sahara tournament last year, was next. Mahaffey had a 68 at Bermuda Junes for a 280 total. Don Iverson of La Crosse failed to qualify for today’s round after firing a one-under par 71 Saturday. He had a 74 Friday and ends the meet with a 301 total, 28 strokes off the pace. palm DESERT, Calif round scores Saturday in Hope Desert Golf Class Bert Yancey Hubert Green Johnny Miller John Mahaffey Mark Hayes David Graham Lee Elder Labron Harris John Lister Mike McCullough Bob Murphy George Knudson Dwight Nevil Mike Reasor Bud Allin Billy Casper John Schlee Jack Fleck Ken Still Lionel Hebert Ray Floyd Jack Ewing J C Snead Bob Rosburg Terry Small Bob Unger Miller Barber Jim Colbert Gary Groh Tom Jenkins Dave Hill Bobby Nichols Billy Ziobro Gay Brewer (AP) - Fourth the $160,000 Bob ic: 71 72-61-69—273 72-69-66-69-276 72-69 69-69—279 71-70 71 68 — 280 68 74-67-72 —281 74-72-65-70—281 69 71 69-72 —281 70-70-71-71 —282 70-71 72-69- 282 69 73-70-70 —282 74 69-70-70 —283 72-71-70-70-283 74 69-71-69 —283 72 69-70-73 —284 80-67-71-66 — 284 75-74 68-67- 284 72 72-67 73 —284 75 69-69-72 — 285 73-72-76-64 — 285 73 72-68-72 —285 74-70-72-70-286 71 72 72 71 —286 71 71-72-72- 286 72-76 68-70-286 72 72-73 70—287 73-70-73-71 — 287 73-70-72 72-287 71-73 74-69-287 75 69-72-71-287 73-72-69 73-287 71-72-73 71 -287 74 68-71-75 —288 72-72 73-71 288 74 74 69-71 -288 Area Cage Slate GAMES TUESDAY CITY WWTl at TV.s Rapids Viterbo at Caimar Tech Logan at Central dairyland Whitehall at Atma Biair at Alma Center Lincoln Augusta at Osseo-Fairchild Eieva-Strum at Independence SOUTH CENTRAL Mauston at Adams-Fr>end$hip Sauk PraTie at Baraboo Reedsburg at Black River Falls Wisconsin Dells at Portage Tomah at Spa-ta SCENIC CENTRAL North Crawford at Brookwood New Lisbon at Hillsboro De Soto at Kickapoo Rovall at Westby Wonewoc Center at Ithaca Wauzeka at Seneca La Farge at Weston other games New Auburn at Arkansaw Chippewa Fails at Bloomer Cashton at West Salem Gilmanton at Cochrane-Fountain City Prairie du Cnien at Lansing Kee High Harmony at Caledonia Onaiaska at Houston Gale Eftrick Trempealeau at La Cres cent Wykoff at Mabel-Canton Peterson at I anesboro ChatCelb at Rushford Sprmg Grcwc at North Winneshiek Taylor at Bangor Fennimore at Bloomington GAMES WEDNESOAY CITY Aquinas at Prairie du Chien Campion CWCC Wausau Newman at Wis Rapids Assumption Eau Claire Regis at Marshfield Colum bus Stevens Point Paceiii at Chippewa Falls McDoneii THURSDAY Nonconference De Soto at Lansing Kee GAMES FRIDAY CITY WWTl at NJCAA Playoffs UW Piatteviile at UW La Crosse OPEN DAILY 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. SUN., MON., TUES.

Green Bay Packer coach Dan Devine is upset with New York Post writer Paul Zimmerman, who published a column about the fines dished out to our Packer heroes. Devine said Zimmerman wrote “malicious lies” about the fines and he expects a retraction. Zimmerman wrote that some players told him that Devine levied several large fines this past season, one amounting to $5,000 for breaking curfew. Devine, and he’s backed up bv Terry Bledsoe of NFL’s management council, claims the Packer fines totaled only $1,250 and $200 of that was rescinded. Chicago Bulls coach. Dick Motta, says he was misquoted concerning the play of some teams in hope they could obtain the draft rights to UCLA's Bill Walton. I didn't say that some teams would like to finish last so they could draft Walton. “ says Motto. Detroit Piston coach Ray Scott says he is a victim of a bad rap about saying the NBA was penny-wise and dollar- foolish when it comes to hiring officials. What does all this mean? It means that people are communicating. but sometimes they don't communicate very well. Unfortunately, it also means that some of our sports writing fraternity are looking for the sensational story rather than printing just the facts. It is easy to take a number of quotes and just use the ones that will make the story sound better ... but not necessarily give the real meaning. It also means that some of our coaches and players say one thing to one person and another thing to someone else. They may say what they really mean in the heat of battle, but realize later that they are in trouble for saying it and so deny it... or say they were misquoted. Slim Pick in’s A doubles handball tournament gets under way at the YMCA Monday with an 18-man field. Orley Brown and Tom Davis rate the favorites’ role. Tomah is host to the State Lions Club bowling tournament starting this month and running for 11 weeks.

Napoles sat on his stool glassy eyed as the bell rang for the seventh round and his handlers signaled to referee Raymond Baldayrou that their fighter could not continue. It was a surprise ending to the fight which the Argentine had dominated after the first round, using his longer reach to keep Napoles from landing effective punches while becoming increasingly confident himself.
