Tiger Match Again
ONE UP ON THOMSON:
Rodgers Takes 'Open' Lead
WEST JORDAN, Utah VP)-An-
other postponement, until Aug. 10,
was announced yesterday for the
middleweight fight in Nigeria be-
tween champion Dick Tiger of Ni-
geria and ex-champ Gene Fullmer
of West Jordan.
Fullmer's manager, Mary Jen-
son, said he had talked by tele-
phone with British promoter Jack
Solomons and guaranteed Fullmer
would leave here July 27 for Iba-
dan,,Nigeria, and would fight Aug.
The fight originally was sched-
uled for July 13, but was postpon-
ed until July 27 when Fullmer
injured his foot in a road workout.
"We informed Solomons that
Gene is unable to fight until Aug.
10, because of his injury," Jen-
Fullmer Really Chicken?
In New York, meanwhile, Tiger's
manager, Jersey Jones, expressed
doubt that Fullmer really wants to
fight Tiger in Nigeria.
"You can hardly get Fullmer
out of his backyard for a fight,"
Jones made the statement at a
press conference held here by
middleweight contender, Joey Gi-
ardello of Philadelphia.
"I don't think we would be in
this mess with Fullmer now if we
had given Giardello a chance to
box Tiger first," Jones said.
To Fight Giardello?
"If the fight is postponed once
more, I'm in favor of a Giardello-
Tiger bout as early as August," he
The 32-year-old Giardello, who
split two previous decisions with
Tiger in 1959, agreed with Jones.
"I don't think Fullmer wants to
go to Nigeria either," said Giardel-
lo. "He doesn't like to go too far
Could Beat Tiger
Giardello, who said he needs
only a couple of weeks to get into
top shape, said he would be will-
ing to go to Nigeria immediately
take place. He said he is positive
he could beat Tiger and added that
Fullmer is afraid to go to Africa
"because he knows Tiger is a little
too tough for him."

Palmer 12 Shots Back
Arnold Palmer, the 33-year-old
money machine who has won the
Open the last two years, struggled
home in 71 yesterday for a 147 to-
tal-12 shots back of R9dgers and
just barely under the cut-off point
for the final 36 holes today.
The field was trimmed to the
best 45 scores and ties for the
final two rounds today. It took
149 to qualify and 47 made the
Rodgers, Nicklaus and Palmer

Out of the shooting went Doug

"I'll be going home," he said.

Gary Player, the South African
holder of the U.S. PGA title, got
in with 75-70-145.
"I'm a front runner." Rodgers
said as he strode off the last
"I'm not one of those who like
to be tucked in behind and then
charge away. I've won all my tour-

His putt on the home green was
a nasty-looking one. He needed to
pot it to take the lead.

then to the right," he said. As

NEW YORK OP) - John Pen-
nel of Northeast Louisiana State,
whose pole vault of 16'63%" stood
briefly this year is a world record,
was selected yesterday to replace
the injured Brian Sternberg on the
U.S. team that will compete
against the Russians in Moscow
Pennel is already competing in
Europe and will join the team
there. He also will compete in Po-
land, Germany and England on
the national squad.
John Uelses, second to Stern-
berg in the AAU national cham-
pionship, is the other vaulter on
the team. After Sternberg was in-
jured severely in a freak accident,
his spot on the team was offered
to Ron Morris of Los Angeles, also
currently in Europe. Morris was
unable to make it.
Sternberg vaulted 16'8" at the
Compton Relays in June.

round. He slotted one from nine
feet at the 10th and another from
15 feet for birdies at the 10th and
11th. Then he wound up before a
gallery of about 5,000 with his
great putt on the home green.
Palmer started the champion-
ship at 2-1 favorite with Nicklaus
second favorite at 5-1. Rodgers
was a 10-1 shot.
"Everything went wrong," Pal-
mer said afterwards.
"I couldn't putt. I guess I hit
the hole seven or eight times
without any of them going in."
PHILADELPHIA (JP) - Nina
Harmer, an Olympic swimming
star and a gold medal winner in
the Pan-American games, failed
to qualify in a Philadelphia meet
Wednesday night-which was em-
barassing enough-but the reason
she failed was even more so.
Four times during the qualify-
ing heat, Miss Harmer had to stop
and replace a strap on her bathing
suit, which kept slipping off her
shoulder. The result was a 1:17.5
in the 100-meter backstroke, far
off her 1:11.5 in the Pan-Am
"It sure was embarrasing," said
Miss Harmer. "I kept having to
stop and fix its It kept hampering
my stroke. I finally figured out
that it would stay up only if I
took a half stroke. That cost me
