MILLER TWO STROKES BACK:
Ballesteros leads Open

By The Associated Press
SOUTHPORT, England-
Spanish teenager Severiano Bal-
lesteros fought back with a
spectacular closing rush and
overcame an early charge by
Johnny Miller yesterday to take
a two-stroke lead after the third
round of the British Open Golf
Championship. He had a 54-hole
total of 211.
The 19-year-old Ballesteros,
who led after the second round
with 136, shot a one-over-par 73
on the 7,001-yard Royal Birkdale
Course which was hit by winds
and a brief rainstorm.
Ballesteros fell two strokes
behind Miller but regained the
lead on the par three fourth
when he parred as Miller took
a bogey by missing a 10-foot
putt. Miller's tee shot had been
far off line.
The Spaniard picked up an-
other stroke on Miller as the
American bogeyed No. 15. Then,
when Miller birdied No. 17,
Ballesteros gained a n o t h e r
stroke with an eagle three when
he hit to within five feet of the
pin. Miller, however, picked up

that stroke with a birdie on No.
18.
Jack Nicklaus, a two-time
winner of this title, made a late
run and nearly got in under par.
But he missed a two-foot putt
Yawkey dies
BOSTON () - Tom Yaw-
key, owner of the Boston Red
Sox, died yesterday in New
England Baptist Hospital in
Boston. Yawkey bought the
Red Sox in 1933. The Red
Sox won four pennants under
Yawkey's ownership, in 1946,
1967, and 1975. But in each
case they were beaten in
seven-game World Series.
Yawkey suffered from dia-
betes for several years.
on the 18th and finished fourth
with a 216, even par, which is
where he started the day.
M il le r was enthusiastic
about Ballesteros, who topped
the European merit list last
year, and missed getting his

U.S. tour player's card by four
strokes.
"He's got a lot of courage-
sometimes too much," said Mil-
ler. "I think I can win it-I
have a real respect for his
game, though I'm not sure
whether he respects mine after
today ... he reminds me of me
when I'm playing well."
Miller wasn't pleased with
himself Friday - "not a well
played round," he said. "Noth-
ing went right towards the end.
I hit four successive good shots
and just missed."
Also displeased was Nicklaus,
who described his day as frus-
trating.
"I feel like I've played well
enough to have a good score
- and I'm at 216. In these
conditions, if I can get some-
thing going I can do something
with it," Nicklaus said.
As the afternoon rounds start-
ed, a driving rain started to
beat down in earnest and it was
back to traditional British Open
weather.

19 year-old Severiano Ballesteros of Spain is all smiles after
yesterday's third round of the British Open Golf Tournament.
Ballesteros overcame an early surge by American Johnny
Miller to keep the lead with a five under par 211. Miller re-
mains two strokes back at 213.

Janet's junk box
INDIANAPOLIS-The U.S. Auto Club received a letter from
the president of the Texas World Speedway, R. C. Conole, yes-
terday claiming Janet Guthrie's Vollstedt racer is a "junk box"
and is unsafe to run in the Aug. 1 Texas Twin 150s.
Conole said the issue "has nothing to do with sex, it only
has to do with safety. I rooted just as hard as everyone for
Janet to make the Indianapolis 500 race."
Dolphins vs. City Hall
MIAMI-Ticket prices would increase by $3 a game if the
Miami Dolphins are forced to accept terms demanded by city
officials for use of the Orange Bowl, team owner Joe Robbie said
yesterday.
He told players, staff members and team boosters that he
won't meet Miami's demand for a 15 per cent share of ticket
sales if a long-term contract is not signed.

SAN DIEGO. - Ken Norton
stages a show before his home-
town fans today with a little
risk when he boxes trial horse
Larry Middleton in a scheduled
10-round bout.
The 31 - year - old ex-Marine,
who calls San Diego his home,
has signed to fight Muhammad
Ali on Sept. 28 in New York's
Yankee Stadium for the heavy-
weight championship.
That bout means millions.
Middleton means about $50,000
to Norton, who rates as the
prohibitive favorite.
.He burst into prominence
with a 12-round decision over
Ali when he broke Muhammad
All's jaw in San Diego on March
31, 1973. That was before All
regained the world champion-
ship. In a return match at Los
Angelet on Sept. 10, 1973, All

won a split decision in 12.
"They call me a tune-up,"
said Middleton of Baltimore.
'Well, Norton was a tune-up
for Ali that first time. He was
a $1,000 fighter. Now he's a
$100,000 fighter. Norton may ex-
pect a tuneup but he's going to
get a fight."
"There's no question in my
mind Norton will go into this
overconfident and putting too
much emphasis on his fight
with All to concentrate on
me."
If Middleton goes five rounds
or more, most boxing experts
will be surprised. His purse
hasn't been announced but could
be in the $20,000 neighborhood
because the 4:30 p.m.,EDT bout
will be nationally televised by
CBS.
"I wanted three, four or even
five bouts to get ready forAll,
but they allowed me only one,"
Norton said. "I think Middleton
is a good fighter and I need
work against a good fighter."
The Baltimore heavyweight
stands 6 feet 4 and weighs
about 212, eight or nine pounds
lighter than Norton. Overall,

his record is a creditable
25-8-2 but the losses have
been more frequent than the
victories lately.
Still he bravely says, "I don't
have a negative bone in my
body for this fight. I think Nor-
ton wants a tough fight before
the big one but not too tough a
fight. I could change that."
Norton actually does appear
to be looking over this bout, but
then he says, "I'm a dude from
San Diego and I hope they come
out to watch me."
He doesn't make predictions
on the Middleton fight, but
he does say he might batter
Ali into submission.
Actually, Norton was sup-
posed to have been fighting
Oscar Bonavena in this San
Diego Sports Arena battle, but
Bonavena was shot to death in
Nevada and Middleton got the
bout.
Michigan won five of the 12
Big Ten championships the Wol-
verines competed for during the
1975-76 season and had five
teams ranked among the na-
tion's Top Ten.
