CHICAGO A--Utilityman Lou Angotti scored a pair of
unassisted goals in the third period last night as the fired-
up Chicago Black Hawks charged to a 5-3 victory over the
Montreal Canadiens in the second game of their National
Hockey League Stanley Cup championship series.
The victory gave the Hawks a 2-0 edge in the best-of-
seven series which continues with the nationally-televised
game scheduled for Sunday afternoon in Montreal. -

Open quest
NEW YORK (A) - Sam
Snead, who has tried unsuccess-
fully for 33 years, finally h a s
decided to give up in his bid
for the U.S. Open golf title.
The U.S. Golf Association,
announcing yesterday that a
record .4,335 filed for the 71st
championship June 17-20 at the
Marion Golf Club in Ardmore,
Pa., said Snead's name was con-
spicuously missing.
"We have no explanation on
why Sam did not enter," a
spokesman said.
The list far exceeds the re-
cord 3,605 set last year w h e n
the title was won by Britain's
Tony Jacklin.
Jacklin will be one of the 35
players exempt from qualify-
ing. The other 4,300 players
must vie for spots in the 150-
man field in local tests May
24-25 and regional tests June

the lead.
The Canadiens had moved in
front on first-period goals by
Jacques Lemaire and Pete Ma-
hovlich after Chicago's Bobby
Hull had unloaded a power play
slap shot for the Hawks' open-
ing goal.
But Chicago came back with
Chico Maki tying the score at
11:58 of the second period on a
high shot from the right side
against Canadiens' goalie Ken
The Canadiens pressed the at-
tack, and their charge into the
Hawks' zone backfired when Re-
jean Houle became tangled be-
hind the Chicago net when his
skate caught in the cords as
play moved back up ice.
As Houle scrambled frantical-
ly trying to get loose, the Hawks
assaulted Dryden and Jim Pap-
pin scored from a scramble at
13:50 for a 3-2 Chicago edge.
Angotti then twice provided
the Hawks wth breathing room
in the third period.
Defenseman Pat Stapleton was
taken to the hospital with a lac-
erated upper lip and cheek after
a collision with Houle.

CHICAGO BLACK HAWKS goalie Tony Esposito probably has a relieved look on his face beneath that
mask as he watches the puck fly past the goal in last night's 5-3 Black Hawk victory over the Mon-
treal Canadiens in the second game of the Stanley Cup finals. Defenseman Stan White (2) looks on. It
was Chicago's second straight win. Game number three is Sunday afternoon.

in a game rescheduled from the rained out affair

Apparently the late scheduling hurt attend-

weather was cold.
Bosox hurler Gary Peters, however, wasn't.
Peters scattered seven hits, and the White Sox
fielders allowed almost as many errors as there
were people there to see them.
There were six miscues in all, and the Chisox
also let a pop fly by Luis Aparicio fall for a double
that triggered a two run first inning.
Meanwhile the Orioles gained a half game on
the Red Sox in the standings by beating Cali-
fornia 3-1 twice. Dave McNally pitched a four-
hitter in the opener of the twi-nighter and Pat
Dobson allowed nine hits in the nightcap while
striking out 10.
In the first game, Baltimore was aided by Andy
Messersmith's wildness. With the score tied, 1-1,
in the fifth Messersmith hit Don Buford, who
then stole second and scored on Brooks Robin-
son's single.
A walk pushed Robinson to second and he
scored on Dave Johnson's hit.

California shortstop Jim Fregosi left the game
because of a recurring shoulder injury.
In the nightcap, Dobson aided his own cause
by driving in what proved to be the winning run
himself with a sixth inning single.

depressant drug before race

BOSTON (/') - Jim Edwards,
president of Suffolk Downs and
operator of a large racing stable,
reported yesterday that one of

Edwards, owner of Audley

NEW YORK (A') - Lew Alcindor of the
Milwaukee Bucks revealed yesterday he
will make a State Department sponsored
tour of Africa next month - a trip that
coincides with his search for a way to
fulfill his obligations to the black com-
That Alcindor is being tugged in that
direction was underscored by his beaming
father Ferdinand Alcindor, as the tow-
ering 7-foot-2 Bucks' center was honored
at a luncheon saluting him as the Most
Valuable Player in the National Basket-
ball Association playoffs.
"Lew has matured and found direction
in his thinking," said his father. "That's
one of the reasons he studied history. He
wants to do things for the betterment
of black people. One of the things he's
doing is this tour.
"He feels strongly about it."
Alcindor, however, admits he's still

searching for ways and means to be as be a success-

to always be a human be-

effective in that role as he was in dom-
inating the NBA's final playoffs as he
led the Bucks to a four-game sweep of
the Baltimore Bullets.
"I'm still searching," Alcindor said.
"Everybody has their obligations to their
community. It's hard on a lot of guys
to fulfill them because they can't get away
from their everyday jobs. I'm in a dif-
ferent position."
That unique position has enabled Al-
cindor to attempt to score some points
merely by his deportment. The African
trip, on the other hand, offers him an
opportunity to learn about his heritage
first hand.
"I understand my place very well - I
never let it get away from me," Alcindor
pointed out. "People in this country spend
a lot of time watching athletes, and I've
been trying to show people what it's like to

ing and have the right values.
"In a lot of ways going to Africa is
like going home. I want to see what the
people are like and what they do. My
family is from the West Indies so I feel
closer to the West Indies, but going to
Africa is going all the way back."
The tour arranged by tht State Depart-
ment will consist of Alcindor, teammate
Oscar Robertso nand Bucks' Coach Larry
Costello holding clinics in six countries -
Algeria, Kenya, Mali, Nigeria, Tanzania
and Somalia,
The group will begin the tour June 3,
and Alcindor will have to leave b-hind
the sports car he was awarded by Sport,
a national magazine, for his efforts in
leading the Backs to the NBA champion-
And that's just as well.
"I don't know," said Alcindor, "if I can
get in the car."
