PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla.!
(P) - Jack Nicklaus scrambled in
with a 69 and took the early first
round lead in the PGA national
championship yesterday while Ar-
nold Palmer's hopes collapsed.
The 41-year-old Palmer, one off
the most popular players the game
has ever known, played his front
nine in a fat 40, four over par.
Palmer, who has never won the
PGA, didn't have a birdie on his
front nine, bogeyed the secondf
and closed out the side bogey-
He appeared to be out of it.
Nicklaus had to scramble des-
perately to keep it together in
the growing wind.
Nicklaus, the current British
Open champion who is gunning for;
a second PGA title, held a one-
stroke lead over veteran Bob Goal-
by, New Zealand lefty Bob Charles
and balding Bobby Mitchell, a non-
winner on the tour.

the afternoon and the only real
threat was from the weather.

seeking his first PGA title, all but

But Michigan still has a chance
to overtake either Colorado Col-
lege or Minnesota and finish out
of the cellar and in the play-offs.
The chance is slim, but if t h e
Wolverines sweep their, last four
games, two with the Gophers and
two with Michigan State, they will
finish at least ahead of Minne-

said. "You better not or you bet-

the icers still have a chance to get
themselves together. "The statis-

the puck in when we get the
chance," he said.
Minnesota, which Michigan vis-
its this weekend has a 7-12 record
and is comparable to the Wol-
verines in that it has failed to
live up to its preseason potential.
The Gophers finished first last
season but 'their performance this
year has been hindered by the loss
of their All-American goalie,
Continuing to be a strong Go-
pher asset is Wally O1d s, their
All-American defenseman, con-
ceivably the top offensive defense-
man in the WCHA. In 17 games,
Olds has scored eight goals and
made eight assists.
Dean Blais, Minnesota's wing, is
also doing well this season with
six goals and 17 assists in a total
of 18 games. Blais scored 33
points for the Gophers last year,
placing second on t h e team to

Renfrew, for one, cannot under-

The odds in favor of making a
comeback against the Gophers are
higher than those favoring t h e
Wolverines against State the fol-
