Yanks dominate British golf
Maltbie leads field;

Hayes breaks record
TURNBERRY, Scotland (A - Mark Hayes, with the best
score ever in this 106-year-old event, and Roger Maltbie led a
talented group of Americans who turned the second round of the
British Open yesterday into a shoot out more typical of the U. S.
tour.
Hayes, the Oklahcma quiet man who won the U. S. Tourna-
ment Players championship earlier thi, year, made the most of
the ideal playing conditions and his new, cross-handed putting
style for a 63, by two strokes the best score this tournament has
ever permitted.
Maltbie, meanwhile, romped to a 66 and sole control of the
lead at 137, three under par on Turnberry's Ailsa course, 6,875
imposing yards that wee stripped of their terror by the 'absence
of the prevailing gales off the Irish Sea and the unusually warm
sunshine.
U. S. Open champion Hubert Green had a hole-in-one and a
string of five consecutive birdies and admittedly "was thinking of
60" before cooling off to a 66 that left him in a four way tie with
three other Americans who really ftit they should have done
better.
Sharing second with Green one sh!)t out of the lead at 138,
were Jack Nicklaus, Lee Trevino and Masters champ Tom Wat-
son, who own a total of five British Open crowns among them.
Nicklaus and Trevino each be geyed the 18th hole - which would
put them on top - after birdyi-ig the s'th. Each matched par 70.
None was completely enchanted with it.
Trevino, who has never been the same since struck by light-
ning two years ago and is still fighting his way back from sur-
gery that threatened his career, missed two putts of less than
four feet in length on two of the last three holes. One would have
given him a tie for the lead. Two would have made him the
leader alone.
Watson, who didn't start until 3:55 p.m. local time, said he
became tired "from just waiting arouid to play. I was ,half asleep
all day. I had all kinds of trouble trying to concentrate."
And the mighty Nicklaus barely was able to contain his an-
noyance over his putting problems. "I made absolutely nothing,"
he said. "Off the way I played, it could have been a very low
round."
He missed three times from about eight feet, three more in
the four to five foot range and failed on one of about 18 inches.

OKLAHOMAN MARK HAYES displays the scorecard that details his amazing round of 63 in yes-
terday's second round of the British Open. Hayes' score was two strokes better than any ever re-
corded in the 106-year history of the event. His record included six birdies, one eagle, and only
one bogey--on the eighteenth hole.

"We took the fight because
's the best fight anybody can
ake in the heavyweight divi-
ion, and that includes an Ali
ight," Sid Catherid of Caes-
s Palace said Thursday at a
twS conference to formally an-
ounce the 12-round fight,
hich will be televised by ABC.
The site -- a 5,000 - seat
sprta pavilion at the hotel-
casino - was the only thing
55e known before the news
coference opened,
The participants and the tele-
si(n arrangement for the Don
gpromotion were an open
ret, and it was also known
t each fighter will get at
ast $1 million. Neither King
r the fighters' connections
old give an exact amount.
Most insiders agreed that the
5-. 1 ranked Norton will get
S Billion plus $100,000 in ex-
,5ts while the second ranked

said King when asked the ex-
act purses for the promo-
tion, which he is calling his
comeback as a major fight
promoter.
"t came very close to being
removed from the scene, not
from action but from innuen-
dos," King said of the various
charges made in connection
with his United States Boxing
Championships, a tournament
suspended by ABC and which
still is being investigated by a
federal grand jury and the net-
work.
Then, in keeping with the
gambling motif of a Las Vegas
fight, the former numbers
banker from Cleveland noted
the bout was being announced
on July 7, '77 and said "In the

numbers business that would
be a triple 7."
"It's going to be power
against deception," Norton,
noted as a puncher, said of
the bout against his former
sparring partner, whose fight-
ing reputation is one of clev-
erness.

DRIVE-IN NIGHT I
CAGED HEAT
(Jonothon Demme, 1974) 7 & 10:30-ML. 4
Luscious renegade women are on the loose in this delicious R-rated
gem. Rape, riot, and revenge are prime ingredients of this inde-
fatigable maelodrama about several women inmates who succtssfully
revoit against the inhuman prison system. "Caged Heat" transcends
the requirements of the budget and sensation-filled form of the B
picture production .A. Thes.

tremely frightening film is a smoidering trip into the world of
weird Aunty Poliy's bizarre hotel containing leather freak ministers,
hermaphrodites. voyeurs, corpses, dirty old ladies, and transvestites.
"Nightmarey, tsary, kinky, kooky, and erotic . . . top echelon of
sophisticated terror fantasy."--After Dark. "Private Parts scared the
shit out of me."-Village voice.
