5-n Sundav, October 31. '71 DETROIT FREE PRESS Can Jfte ifears Do if Again Dickson Leads in Sahara They're Off Today At Windsor Raceway Against Mighty Cowboys? biggest challenge in North America," but it remains to be seen whether it will achieve the popularity of such older gimmicks as the Qui-nella and Perfecta. Sunday racing, regarded by some racing men as their salvation in the light of falling attendance and betting, has failed to live up to expectations at Windsor in the past. In the winters of both 1970 and '71 the Canadian track tried Sunday programs without particular success. Sunday afternoon proved better for business than Monday night, but attendance dropped steadily from the high of 7,575 on the first LAS VEGAS, Nev.

(AP) Long shot Bob Dickson reeled off a string of three consecutive birdies, surged past faltering Lee Trevino and regained the lead in the third round of the $135,000 Sahara Invitational golf tournament. Dickson, 103rd on the money list this season and lacking a finish in the top 10 in two years, fired a four under par 68 for a 54 hole total of 210 as he reclaimed the No. 1 position he held after the first round Thursday. Trevino, the pre-tourney favorite who took the second round lead, dropped back with bogeys on the 11th and 12th holes and finished with a 73. THAT ONE-OVER-PAR effort by the popular Trevino, winner of five titles this season but in a slump the last three months, gave him a 54-hole total of 214, four off the pace.

Arnold Palmer shot a 69 for 217, one of a large group at that figure. i BY AL COFFMAN Fret Press Racing Writer Horse racing fans may not have chicken every Sunday, but they're going to get harness racing for the Sabbath at Windsor Raceway. Starting this Sunday and every Sunday the rest of the year they can catch the trotters and pacers at 1:30 p.m. at the Tartan track as it moves to meet competition from the Detroit tracks. THIS MARKS the first time fn eight years of harness racing that the Sunday sport will be a regular feature of the Canadian track's fall program.

By the first of the year, Windsor will have presented 53 programs, including two Wednesdays plus the nine Sunday matinees. Windsor officials are incorporating Sunday racing into their program as part of a full-scale fight for survival against Detroit. They're also cutting general admission by 50 cents. It now will cost only $1. Finally the customers will have two new forms of betting available at the track for the first time the Triactor and Quadactor.

The triactor is the parimutuel gimmick known at the Detroit tracks as the Trifecta, in which fans must select the finishers in exact 1-2-3 The completely new Quadactor, used in the U.S. only in New York as the "Superfecta," requires a 1-2-3-4 selection. WINDSOR is billing the Quadactor as "the BY JACK SAYLOR I Fret Prn Iparti Wrltir CHICAGO Is Jim Dooley and one lefthanded quarterback equal to Tom Landry and two quart-i erbacks, both righthanded? The Chicago Bears and Dallas Cowboys will try 1 to answer that question Sunday as Dooley and i Landry pull the strings for their puppets at Soldier I Field. Their manipulations also can have a profound I effect on the course to be taken by the NFC's i Central Division race. The Minnesota Vikings, who lead the Frostbite Circuit, meet the Giants in New York Sunday, then the Lions and Green Bay Packers complete the first half of the NFL schedule with their Monday night game in Milwaukee.

THE GAMES are pivotal, particularly for the Bears and Lions. A victory over Dallas on the heels of their upset of the Lions last week, could give the Bears the kind of lift they need to make a run to the wire with the Vikes. The Lions badly need a victory over the Packers to recoup from the loss to the Bears and to prove they can right themselves from the stunning effects and lingering sadness of Chuck Hughes' tragic death. A loss here to the mistake-prone Packers would be demoralizing. Indeed, should something like that follow a Chicago loss and a Minnesota victory Sunday, the Central Division race could be history with the season only half over.

SUCH A DISCOURAGING turn of events for De-troiters would leave the Vikings with. a two-game, i lead and no tougher road ahead than their Racing Results rg. 16D After this weekend's festivities, Minnesota meets San Francisco, Green Bay, New Orleans, Atlanta, San Diego, Detroit and the Bears and Vikes catch both the 49ers and Lions at home. The Lions have home games with the Rams, Chiefs and Eagles, plus road trips to Denver, Chicago and the back-to-back season-ending games at Minnesota and San Francisco. Chicago meets the Packers, Redskins and Lions, then have "three straight on the road (Miami, Denver and Green Bay) before winding up against Minnesota.

Neither the Bears nor Lions can afford the luxury of a defeat this weekend. ON THE. FIELD at Soldier Field Sunday, the constant shuttling of players as Dooley and Landry call the plays might result in a record number of delay-of-game penalties. And with the Cowboy offensive line trying to adjust to the different cadences of Roger Staubach and Craig Morton on each play, Dallas could march steadily backwards on illegal motion penalties. Other than that, the Bears will depend on the running of Don Shy, who nicked the Lions for 99 yards last week, the passing of southpaw Bobby Douglass to Dick Gordon andor George Farmer and the play-calling ingenuity of Dooley most of all on the defense of Dick Butkus.

Dallas has the defensive strength, too; the Cowboys have Duane Thomas running again and, if they're not too breathless from running on and off the field, Staubach and Morton can try a few passes to Bob Hayes. Dallas Is a 10-point favorite. Bobby Douglass Sunday and betting slipped from a peak of $511,619 (hat afternoon. Previously, Windsor has chosen to stay closed Sundays in the fall rather than bu-k professional football on television, but now it is willing to gamble on attracting fans rather than go ahead to head six nights with Jackson's harness meet at Northville Downs opening Monday night As it is, Windsor already has delayed the opening of its fall meet from the usual early-October date because it didn't want to challenge Wolverine Raceway for three weeks.

He replaces Lafry Regan, who will continue as general manager. Glover, 43, started his fourth- season as coach of the California Golden Seals this year, but was fired after three games.

Kings' owner Jack Kent Cooke said: "Before the season began Larry suggested that he couldn't do justice to both jobs, coach and general manager. I urged him to give it a try." 12 4 2-7-4 2-2-5 10 8 6 2-3-4 7-4-4 i rrmiiier i ime wnqmj 1 wire nunc vjruitKineyerj 7 Country Boy (R. Carroll) EIGHTH Purse 2,500 conditioned mile: 4 SHADO TRAVEL (C.

A year ago, relief pitcher Tom Tim-merman took home the award by picking up just six votes, as seven different Tigers were named at least once. For more than two months, It has been obvious Lolich would be this year's winner. The only question was, by how wide a margin. Al Kaline, who has never won the award, Norm Cash, who barely missed out on the American League homenin crown, Bill Freehan, who returned from back surgery to reclaim his position of priority among AL catchers and Fred Scherman, who was all alone in the bullpen for so long, all figured to draw some support, but Lolich, the Tigers' rubberarmed 25 game winner, blitzed everybody on the homefront a feat which should ease the pain of finishing second behind Blue in the poll on pitching superiority within tne entire league. Mickey will be honored at the Detroit writer's annual dinner Jan.

11. BY JIM HAWKINS Fret Pr Sports Writ.r The world may belong to Vida Blue, but in his own bailiwick Mickey Lolich is king. The Tiger of the Year ballots were counted Sunday and, much to nobody's great surprise, the Mick was the winner. Blue, the Oakland star who strong-armed the Cy Young Award away from Lolich with 17 wins in the first three months of the season, didn't get a vote. FOR THAT matter, none of the other Tigers did either as Lolich became the first unanimous winner in the seven-year history of the award, which is pre-' sented annually by the Detroit Chapter the Baseball Writers Association.

And that 28-0 count was a surprise. Nobody including Denny McLaln, who preceeded Blue as Mickey's chief rival for the limelight ever came close to a ciean sweep betore.
