Little Rock, 1 .Dave (Davo) Burleson or Fayetteville continued his Mark Spitz-like domination of the Arkansas High School B o y s Swimming Championships. For the third straight year, Burleson 'scored 28 points out:-ot .a'vpcssible 28. All he did was win the 50- yard freestyle in 22.9, the 100- yard freestyle, in.51.1 and the 100-yard "backstroke in 59.8, plus anchor two winning relay teams.''Despite-taking just a four-man team, FHS easily won its third straight high school swimming title. Burleson, who already owns pile Worthen Award for his accomplishments in the same meet last year, is likely to win another. Through it all, ho\yever, Day.o.r has ·remained .the ·· picture'-.of mode sty .'""The one' thing he asked was that the performances ,-i.;'9f/ : :?h}3 .team-, mates bV'.-recoghizSdi "Scott Fedosky ' s e t ' a ' s t a t e record of 1:05.8 in the 100-yard breaslroke, won the 200-yard i n d i v i d u a l medley and finished second in the 100- yard butterfly," he began. ' ' G r e g Thoma hadn't worked out since March, but he got second in the 100-yard backstroke and third in the 200 medley, timied. filth ai on both relay teams. HOPED TO DO BETTER About his own performance, the soft-spoken Burleson said only, "I was hoping to do better than that." That is, he wanted to break his own records of,22.8 in the 50 and 49.6 in the 100. It was reported that he tied the backstroke record of 58.9, but he actually clocked 59.8. He has had a 58.7 in that event, but it came in a meet at Memphis. "For one reason or another, · I've never been able to work out'- the year-around," he explained. "That's what it takes to stay in good shape." With 68 In Third Round Of Play he's a great swimmer." PRAISES SPITZ Dave credits Spitz .with putting swimming on the sports map: "Because of him, swimming is. finally getting some - publicity. Someone really ought to write a book about Spitz! Most people don't' realize that he had to keep himself at a physical peak for four years after the 1968 Olympics. To wait that long and' work' 1 "that" hard is remarkable." . Dave-began - swimming· at age six, through: the-influence of his three older sisters. "Ann swam for FHS and received the first sports letter ever given to a girl by the school," he noted. "Clare and Jane also Won letetrsi" Ann (Owen)' is -'now a medical, technologist in Los Arrgeles, Clare (Sirnmonds) is a senior-phys ed-major:-at' Memphjs : State arid Jane" Burleson: will .be ,a jSOphpjnore^.at .the.XJ - o f ·With*·'such' : talented ''sisters teaching him, Dave had to be an immediate success, right? Wrong. Let him describe his first venture into competitive swimming. "This was a meet in Fort Smith- It was set up so that the swimmers in the next race sat behind the blocks to prevent delays. There would Karl Grabs B. C. Lead - ENDICOTT, N.Y. (AP) -Hometown hero Richie Karl, who grew up just across the s.treet from the golf course, charged into a share of the lead Saturday with a 68 in the third round of the $150,000 B.C. Open. Karl, now an assistant pro at the host En Joie Golf Club when he isn't playing the tour, had a 205 total, eight under par. He was tied for the top spot with Curtis Sifford. Sifford, a 32-year-old nephew of old pro Charley Sifford and t h e s e c o n d-round leader. scrambled to a one-under 70 in the mildi breezy weather"This is my bad round," said Sifford, one of the few blacks on the pro golf tour. "I got it out of the way. I got my choking round out of the way." Veterans John Schlee and Australian Bruce Crampton were two shots off the pace at 207. Schlee's 65 represented the best round of the tournament while Crampton 'got in with a 70. CRAMPTON CONFIDENT "I. know Cramplon, winner of 14 American tour events: "I don't know if Richie knows he can win. We'll find out tomorrow.". Neither Karl nor Sifford has ever won on the tour. Another pair of non-winners --· Tim Collins and Mark Hayes -- were at 208, each with a thjrdround 72. Most of the game's top names skipped, this tourney, which immediately followed last week's British Open. Hulbert Green, the defending ception, but he failed to qualify for the final two rounds. Karl, 29, ' has played part time on the tour for four years but has not yet come close to winning. For his 10 previous events this season -- only one since M a r c h , , h e h a s - a n official money winning total of $255.38. Karl has played this 6,804- yard layout since he was 6 years old --"It's a good neighborhood to grow up in and playing golf, well, your mother always knew where you were" -and is seekiirg to become the Professional Baseball the girl scheduled to swim in my lane scratched. When they a n n o u n c e d the 50-yard freestyle, I knew that was my race. The next thing I knew, the gun went off and I jumped in." LOST TO TWO GIRLS Not only did-he lose to two girls, hut he finished the race, three'lanes over from where he started. "Then I swam in the boys' race and'lost it,; too," he;said;. 1 .-. ' i ' · · : . ' · : f ; Since theni'-h'e. has; grown 1 to 6-1 and 140 'pounds and has stopped losing to either: girls or boys. "Really, I'm'.lucky not to be heavy," he says. "It's an advantage 'for a: swimmer to'-be slender." It's, NATIONAL LEAGUE EAST W L Pet. .505 .495.479 · .467 .440 Philaphia Montreal St'i-SLbui's Pittsburgh Chicago New York .For Dave, staying in shape- a disadvantage for a football' means swimming 5000 to 6000 player, though. He gave up yards a day in a two-hour that sport in the ninth grade, period, followed by weight .Dave's favorite race is the 100 freestyle," "when I'm in " ~ " he plays down by lifting and stretching exer cases. We'll swim 10 10»s at 30-secpnd intervals, then rest a minute or tw'O and do five 200s, and so on." '·But that's ohly'-part of what, it takes to .win races. ."A week or so /before a meet, you have to start /getting psychologically ;-ready t " says Dave- "I think about how I'm going to swim, and try not to worry about the other swimmers. The thing you don't want to do is swim someone else's race." ' : ; It comes as no surprise that Burleson has studied two of the most successful swimmers ever, Roland Matthes of East Germany and Spitz. It's been years since anyone has beaten Matthes at his specialty, the backstroke. "His nickname Is Rolling Mattress," said Dave. "He does all kinds of crazy things. Once he tried to throw the shot, sprained his wrist and shape." But his state record in the event: "My best time is 49.6, and the world record is 44.51. Swimmers my age in California, Iowa and other states are doing 47s:" 'Part of;the reason for that is '(hat · Arkansas -hai-oniy-one high school meet per year. while many states have, a whole season of meets. But Dave refuses to complain. Instead, he's optimistic: "My goal is to have a good senior year at Fayetteville and then swim in college on a scholarship-" ·. . Beyond that, there's the possibility of international competition. "I'll just be 19 when the next Olympics come," said Dave. "But maybe I'll have a chance to swim in the Fan-Am games." For a swimmer from Ar' kansas, that would : be something.

The owners and their striking players continued to observe their vows of secrecy, established when the latest round of talks began Friday; But the' calm and somewhat casual atmosphere was seen as one--that the negotiating finally had gotten off dead center: By contrast, a number of earlier meetings since the players issued their demands last March were marked by stiff formality and considerable acrimony.

LOUIS (AP) -- Tim McCarver drilled a two-run, two-out, bases-loaded single in the bottom of the ninth inning, capping a three-run rally that gave St. Louis a 6-5 victory over Houston and snapped the Cardinals' seven-game losing streak. The Astros had taken a 5-3 lead with a four-run eighth. But in the ninth, Luis Melendez tripled and scored- on Lou Brock's grounder. Jerry Davanon then walked, wife and ask her to join him in Washington. Other negotiators agreed that the sessions were not likely to end soon although a precise .iirietable was not set. Federal mediator James icearce observed only that 'we aren't afraid of Sunday." He declined to predict how far the talks might extend beyond that. Whatever the progress, a.set- tlement did not appear imminent because of the sheer volume of the union's proposals. Though there has been some movement by the owners in the latest round on money items, the players say they will continue striking .until they receive concessions on a host of so called-freedom issues. They include elimination of the Rozelle compensation rule, the waiver and option clauses and the practice of fining players as routine punishment. Friday's Results Cleveland 4, Oakland 0.
