SHOOTS NEAR-RECORD 66:
Nelson's tip helps Fleckman take command in PCI

SAN ANTONIO, Tex. (P)-Tour
rookie Marty Fleckman took a
tip from sage Byron Nelson and
fired a four-under-par 66 yester-
day for a two-stroke lead in the
opening round of the 50th PGA
golf championship.
"Byron told me you've got to
play the par threes and the par
fives if you hope to do any good,"
the strapping 24-year-old young-
ster from Port Arthur, Tex., said.
"I birdied three of the four par
threes, and that's what did it." .
Fleckman, who as an amateur
led the U.S. Open in 1967 through
three rounds and who made golf
history by winning his first tour-
nament as a pro, birdied the 213-
yard third hole without ever hit-
ting the fairway or the green,
chipping in from the rough, and
added birdies at the 12th and 16th
on putts on 12 and seven feet.
He had only 26 putts - 10 be-
low par - for the phenomenal
round.
The 66, one over the course
record, gave the tall, dark-haired
Texan a two-stroke lead over
Frank Beard, who also putted

with radar eyes for a 68 despite
bogeys on the last two holes.
Only three other players in the
bulky 'field of 167 managed to
crack the 70 par of the' 7,096-yard
Peach Valley course, which swel-
tered under 95-degree heat.
They were Lee Trevino, the
casual wisecracking winner of the
U.S. Open in June; bespectacled
Mason Rudolph of Clarksville,
Tenn., and Don Bies, 30-year-old
assistant .pro from Seattle who
always seems to play his best in
the PGA. All fired 69s.

tournament and teaching variety,
was quickly dubbed the "Sweat
and Swear Open."
The searing heat sent rivulets
of water down the competitors
and the gallery of 12,350. The
swearing came in contestants'
protests over the 'knotty wire-like
rough and the peculiar architec-
ture of the course which forced
the big hitters to throttle their
cannons and fire pop guns.
On at least half a dozen holes-
the 18th being the prime and most
castigated example-players had
to lay up off the tee to avoid
meandering, Slado Creek or some
other hazard.
"It's ridiculous," said Arnold
Palmer. "Jack Nicklaus is the
only player I know who can go
over the creek, and he would need
a carry of 270 yards."
Contenders such as Nicklaus,
Beard and Fleckman all acknowl-
edged that they used drivers on
only five or six of the 14 holes
where normally a man might let
out with a big blast..
Nicklaus and Palmer each shot
71, a respectable score, and were

tied with 'more than a half-dozen
other blue ribbon performers in-
cluding former Masters winner
Gay Brewer.
There were seven tied at par
70. They included former PGA
champion Al Geiberger, Dan Sikes,
Charles Coody, Miller Barber,'
Johnny Pott, Frank Barber and
Laurie Hammer. All are seasoned
pros except Hammer, a blond,
matinee idol type of 24, who is in
his third year on the circuit.
Three of the advance favorites
-defending champion Don Janu-
ary, Bill Casper and Tom Weis-
kopf, fell victim to the weather,
the rough and fickle golfing for-
tunes.
The struggling and. frustrated
January, getting a double bogey at
the 14th and bogeying the last
three holes skied to a 78.
Weiskopf, bidding to overtake
Casper in the season's money-
winning race, saw his game col-
lapse on the back nine, shooting
35-42-77..
Casper, unable to shake the
putting 'miseries that beset him
in the final round of the British

Open at Carnoustie last week,
struggled to a 74.
The bull-shouldered Fleckman,
who turned pro last summer, re-
fused to be shaken by the heat or
the odd character of the course.
"I'd rather hit the driver off
the tee," he said, "but there's no
use getting mad. Everybody else
has to play 'the same course. It
didn't bother me at all."
He birdied three holes in a row,
chippingkin from 2'5 feet at the
second, knocking in a six-footer
at the third and a, seven-footer at
the fourth. After bogeying the
long 607-yard par 5 sixth by
three-putting, he snapped back
with birdies on the two par 3 holes
on the back nine.
Trevino, followed by a large and
enthusiastic gallery, also spun off
three straight birdies at the sixth,
seventh and eighth holes. He
double-bogeyed the 11th, where he
misjudged a nine-iron approach
and took three from the fringe,
and'played all other holes in par.
,"I'm scrambling great," he said
afterward, his. swarthy face break-
ing into a wide grin, "just like I
did when I won the Open."

TEXAS' OWN LEE TREVINO gets off to a rough start in yesterday's opening of the PGA cham-
pionship in San Antonio. Trevino had to get out of this sand trap on the first hole, but still shot a'
three-under-par 32 on the front nine. The reigning U.S. Open titlist recorded a first-round 69,
three strokes off the pace set by young Marty Fleckman.

Barry,
SAN FRANCISCO (P) - The
San Francisco Warriors opened a
court struggle yesterday to re-
capture their basketball super-
star Rick Ba ry or collect dam-
ages for his loss.
The Warriors of the National
Basketball Association charged in
a suit before Superior Court
Judge Walter Carpeneti that Bar-
ry's 1966-67 contract required
that he play for them through the
1967-68 season even though he re-
fused to sign a new agreement.
Instead, Barry sat out the 1967-
68 season after signing a three-
year contract with the Oakland
Oaks of the rival American Bas-
ketball Association at $75,000 a:
season.
The Warriors contend that Bar-
ry did not fulfill his part of a
reserve option clause by merely
sitting out the past season. They
insist he still is required to give
them a year of actual play.
The amount of damages the
Warriors feel they would be en-
titled to fop the loss of the play-
er's services was not specified in
advance of testimony.

battle

The Oakland contract also gave '

Barry a 15 per cent stock interest
in the Oaks, owned by singer Pat
Boone and coached by Barry's
father-in-law, Bruce Hale.
Hale coached Barry ate the Uni
versity of Miami.
The Oakland agreement also
pledged that the Oakland owners
would indemnify Barry for any
perialties resulting from his leav-
ing the San Francisco team.
Richard Archer, heading a
three-lawyer Warrior legal team
started the trial by entering Bar-
ry's contracts with the Warriors
and the Oaks as exhibits.
Pete Peletta, University of pan
Francisco athletic director and
former coach, testified as the first
witness that Barry was the most
exciting player in professional
basketball.
Archersaid he would establish
that the Warriors playing without
Barry suffered a serious decrease
in attendance and that other NBA
teams also suffered an attendance
lag.
Barry played two years with
San Francisco before signing the
three year contract with Oakland
for $225,000. The Warriors won a
restraining order forbidding him
from playing for any other team
until his reserve clause with San
Francisco expires on Sept. '30,
1968.
With Barry as top scorer, the
San Francisco club won the NBA
Western Division title for 1966-67.
The trial will be in recess today
because Judge Carpeneti has a
previous commitment on the Su-
perior Court's appellate bench.

Franks will resign if Giants don't take flag

By The Associated Press'
ST. LOUIS'- Herman Franks
said yesterday, he will quit as
manager of the San Francisco Gi-
ants at the end of the year if the
club doesn't win the National
League - pennant.,
"Yes," Franks said in confirm-

ing reports he would retire. "Four
years is enough. Change is good
for everybody. I just made the
statement that if we couldn't win
the pennant this year, then I
would resign. It's that simple."

OAKLAND OAK (or San Francisco Warrior) forward Rick
Barry discusses his date in court with a lawyer in yesterday's
opening session of a breach-of-contract trial in The City. The
former NBA All-Star, who accepted a fabulous offer to jump to
the ABA Oaks, is charged with failure to carry out his contract
obligations to the Warriors.

AN EXCITING CONTEST:
Students and faculty 7, Regents 3

By The Associated Press
Yale defends more than an Ivy
League championship this fall.
The Elis are the biggest winners
in college football history - by
a whopping 31 victories.
Princeton, Harvard and Penn-
sylvania round out the top quartet
as schools which helped start the
game{ on American campuses.
They still dominate the win col-
umn long after their national
prestige, poll-wise, has waned.
From a three-goals-to-none vic-
tory over Columbia in 1872
through Walter Camp and Amos
Alonzo Stagg to Carmen Cozza
and Brian Dowling, Yale has post-
ed 619 triumphs.
Princeton follows with 588 while
Harvard and Penn both claim 567

black Cowboys
ALBUQUERQUE, N. M. «'1 --
Don Perkins, one of the National
Football League's top running
backs, says it's not easy for a Ne-
gro athlete to live in Dallas, Tex,
where he gets paid about $40,000
a year to play for the. NFL Cow-
boys.
He confirmed yesterday state-
ments he made in an interview,
before he left Albuquerque for
Dallas this week, about housing
conditions for Negroes in Dallas.
"Do you know my wife Virginia
and I would be embarrassed to
have you visit our home in Dal-
las?" he said
"Why? The Negroes on the
Cowboys can only find roach-in-
fested houses."
His comments on Dallas hous-
ing were made in an interview
with J. D. Kaier of the Albuquer-
que News, a weekly newspaper.
Perkins said he has his family
in a Dallas motel until they can
find a suitable home. He plans
to leave today for Thousand Oaks,
Calif., and the Cowboys training
camp.
He said friends had been try-
ing to find a suitable home for
his family, "but they haven't had
any luck so far."
Asked if he felt he had been
exploited by the Cowboys, as the
magazine Sports Illustrated has
indicated is the case with some
college Negro athletes, Perkins re-
plied:
"I honestly don't feel I've been
exploited any more by the Cow-
boys than I've used them. I've
been hired to play fullback, and
I receive a good salary to do

dents and faculty members lost
points for being unable to present
a cogent rationale for the pro-
posed composition.
As the first half wore on, Re-
gent Robert Brown picked up a
copy of the proposed OSS bylaw
and, as if to roll up his shirt-
sleeves, demanded "Let's get down
to business."
"7.01," he read "'There is her-
by established an Office of Stu-
dent Services."'
"Now what's wrong with that?"
he said.
Before he had a chance to go
down the list of provisions (the
students were encouraging him to
continue), official referee Robben
W. Fleming intervened and chan-
ged the topic.
Mendel, Sinclair, Knowles, and
Bishop put the contest out of
reach in the final minutes as they
supported a common theme: Don't
rock the boat.
"I think the Regents should
listen carefully to the students be-
cause they are--if not 100 per,
cent right-nearly so," Mendel
said. "I spent the month of May
in Paris," he noted. "And while
I don't foresee a reenactment here
of what happened there, I do see
the same trends developing."
Knowles also contended that the
peace of the University was at
stake. "We haven't had trouble
here because we have had discus-'
sions like this. Nobody wants a
Columbia here. I'm afraid some
of the Regents are acting out of
fear, and I'm afraid that they will
enact a hasty and carelessly de-
vised bylawJust to get something
on the books."
"No rule is going to stop some-

thing from happening if it's going
to happen,"her warned. "One of
you hinted that a bad bylaw is
better than none at all. That's not
true. A bad bylaw could only pre-
cipitate trouble."

the Crimson, .723, edge the Quak-

Michigan with 502 triumphs.
and Notre Dame at 501 are the
only other schools to reach the
elite '500' bracket. Texas, Army,
Dartmouth and Alabama round
out the top 10.
It stands to reason the ancient
Ivy powers are well 'out in front.
Whattahead start they had.
By the end of 1888 -- a year the
Elis outscored the opposition 694-0
-Yale had won 92 games, Prince-
ton, 91, Harvard 79 and Penn 51.
By comparison, Michigan had
16 victories to its credit and that
brash newcomer, Notre Dame, one.
The Fighting Irish have a slight.
lead, percentagewise, with a .784
mark compared to Princeton's .780
and Yale's .778. Michigan, .732,
and Army, .729, are the closest
pursuers.
Yale has the most unbeaten
seasons to its credit, 29, while
Princeton claims the most perfect
campaigns with 18.
Yale appears up to its old tricks
this fall, favored to retain the Ivy
crown it won last fall with stars
like quarterback Dowling and
halfback Calvin Hill returning.
The Elis had gained the cham-
pionship the first time the Ivy
League became formalized in 1956,
too.
Harvard, of course, shaped foot-
ball's destiny by introducing rug-
by aspects to a soccer-oriented
game in those early days.
The schools which are closest to
cracking the 400-victory circle are
Colorado with 303; Louisiana
State, 391; Georgia, 383; Miami of
Ohio, 381; Brown and West Vir-
ginia, 378; Rutgers and Michigan
State, 377; Holy Cross and Vir-
ginia, 375.

Franks qualified his announce-.
ment by adding that "more than
likely" he would return as man-
ager next year if the Giants did
pull out a pennant.
There has been no talk of a.
successor for Franks with the
Giant management, he added. "Ij
