Northwwt Arkansas TIMES, Mon., Aug. 26, 1974 FAYETTEVILLE, ARKANSAS MILLER CAPTURES PRIZE .. .Johnny Miller gestures as his birdie putt drops on the 18th green Saturday during third round play in. the, Westchester Golf Classic. Miller finished the tournament TS'under par to collect jirst prize ' Johnny Miller 19 Under Par For Westchester Golf Win HARRISON, N.Y. (AP) -"I've really been in contention, 'in position to win, seven times this year -- and I've won six," Johnny Miller said. "You shouldn't win more than one out of three. "It's a joke, really, a joke." But Miller, who scored his sixth victory of the season by a record 59-under par score in the rich Westchester Golf Classic; was dead serious Sunday when he said he would skip next year's PGA national championship if he is not allowed to use his regular tour caddy -- Andy Martinez. "If I can't use my caddy, I definitely will not play in the PGA," Miller said after his final round 6V, five-under-par, had provided him with a two- stroke victory over journeyman Don Bies, with Tom Weiskopf and'-Jack Nicklaus once again frustrated, unsuccessful challengers. Miller's 269 total was a record for the 6.bl4-yard West- Chester Country Club course. He collected $50,000 from the total purse of $250,000, pushed his leading money winning total to $255,567 and, with six titles, has won twice as many tournaments as any other player on the tour this season. "I owe this one to my caddy," the 27-year-old Miller said. He explained that his professional, touring caddy, Andy Martinez, helped him correct a flaw in his swing early last week and made another correc- NFL-Players' Negotiations Resumed Today CHICAGO (AP) -- Negotia lions in the National Footbal League player dispute, stallec for more than a week, will re sume Monday before chief fed era mediator W.J.

Marshall, in his 04lh game this season, entered a bases loaded, none out situation Sunday, facing the go-ahead run. But he nailed three batters in a row, striking out, two,: to' preserve a 9-3 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals. The victory, the Dodgers' f i f t h in their last six games and second in a-row over the staggering Cardinals, kept them 2% games in front of Cincinnati in the National League West. The defeat, coupled with a double victory by Pittsburgh at San Diego, knocked the Cardi- nals out of first place in the NL East and left them one-half game behind Pittsburgh. "Mike Marshall has been super all year," said Jimmy Wynn, who drove in two runs, his 90th and 91st of the year. "He pitches every day and is just fantastic. What else can you say about the man?" GOOD PITCHES Marshall, ever the reluctant hero, said he made good pitches during the critical situation in the sixth inning. "But I also made good pitches the other night. I just wasn't lucky," he added. It was Friday that Marshall surrendered a ninth-inning single which broke a 1-1 tie and led to a St. Louis victory. This time he pitched out of he jam brilliantly, preserving Andy Messersmith's 15th win with his 19lh save. The Dodgers bashed 14 hits, including Ron Cey's 15th home run which highlighted a five- run first inning against losing pitcher Alan Foster, 7-9. Messersmith pitched into the sixth before leaving with a run in; the bases loaded, no one out and the Dodgers ahead, 6-3. That's when Marshall appeared. He got Ted Simmons to pop out and then fanned Ken Rcilz and Mike Tyson. The Dodgers broke fast against Foster., Not only did he get nailed for five runs, but he also got hit on the right shoulder by a line drive off Steve Garvey's bat which scored the Dodgers' first run. A two-run double by Willie Crawford followed and then Cey slugged his homer to make it 5-0. St. Louis came back.with two runs in the third before Messersmith scored Jn the fourth to make it 6-2. The Cardinals got a run In the sixth before Marshall slammed the door, then the Dodgers sewed it up with three runs in their half of the inning.

Working against a Sept. 1 deadline of the American Bas- cetball Associations-trie Utah Stars have'..)a.f£ered'_Malone a contract described by an ABA source as worth more than §1 million. An early decision of the immediate playing future could be "orthconiing this morning at Malone's home in Petersburg, Va. An ABA spokesman said James Collier, new president of the Stars, was to meet at the Malone home along with Arnie Ferrin, the Utah general manager, and Morris "Bucky" Buckwalter, the team's director of player personnel. ', : Neither Malone nor his mother were available for comment Sunday night, but the Richmond Times-Dispatch quoted a friend of the family as saying that Malone told him, "I'm going to sign with the Stars." The Utah officials conferred with Malone and his mother on Saturday, at a meeting also attended by two coaches from the Petersburg High School tearn Malone attended last year, and Howard White, an assistant to Maryland basketball coach Lefty Driesell. Ferrin told' The Associated Press, in a telephone interview 'rom a Petersburg motel, that in Saturday night Bu.ckwalter had driven to College Park to show the contract to Driesell. Late Sunday night, before departing in his car for Petersburg, Driesell charged that the DTO team was- "not dealing in jood faith" and was taking advantage of Malone. ' El Paso Pads TL League E l Diablos Paso's padded front-running their Texas Jim Kehoe, Maryland's ath- etic director, contended the Jtars were going in "by the ack ioor -- secretly, with subterfuge and deceit -- to prevail upon a high school graduate in .his way.". But Ferrin argued that the Stars were indeed operating in ;ood faith by showing the con- Tact to Driesell in advance. "I wonder," Ferrin added, "if the schools wtio recruited in opposition to Maryland were shown all the tools in advance, the ivay we did. I didn't hear any charges of bad faith from those who lost out to Lefty." Kehoe urged that the contract be scrutinized by an impartial League West lead over runner- up San Antonio to three and one-half games Sunday by beating .the Brewers 5-2. --It was the only game played.

Tonight's schedule matches San Antonio at El Paso, Midland at Amarillo, Victoria al Alexandria and Shreveport al Arkansas. Driescll said there was also an education clause, which the ABA spokesman described as a 560,000 fund to pay for any col- ege work that Malone pursues n the future. Malone's said he observer to protect rights, and Ferrin agreed. Driesell signed Malone to a national letter-of-intent after a long recruiting battle. The Terps have risen to prominence under Driesell, finishing as the No. 4 team last season, anc supporters were hopeful Malone eventually would lead them to the national title.- According to Driesell, the proposed Utah contract woulc be for four years at $105,000 a year. The 18-year-old also would receive a $25,000 bonus for .-'gn- ing and another $25,000 whci, he reported to training camp.
