Just Practice Miller Leads, Fires a 69 MIYAZAKI, Japan (AP) Johnny Miller broke out of a four-way tie with a three-under- par 69 for sole possession of the lead with a 207 after the third round of the Phoenix Golf Tournament on Saturday. Miller, the U.S. Open cham- pion and leading money winner on the PGA tour this season, was three strokes up on Gary Sanders, who vaulted from 13th place to second with a At 211 were Gibby Gilbert and Kuo Chie-Hsiung of Tai- wan, two of the second-round leaders who shot par 72 on the Miyazaki Phoenix Country Club course Saturday, and Lu Liang-Huan of Taiwan and Takaai Kimn of Japan, each with a 71. With two losses. Notre Dame will not repeat as na- tional champion. The Fighting Irish will be replaced by pi- ther undefeated Alabama or presently top-ranked Okla- homa. A convincing victory could persuade the voters to check off Alabama as the top college football team. Anything loss probably would wrap up the collegiate championship for the Oklahoma Sooners, who have been barred from a bowl game appearance because they are on probation by the National Collet-imp Athletic Association for recruiting vio- lations.

HALL BICYCLE CO. 40S2mlAvt.SE3l2.1IS2 Open Mtoknighta 'TO 9 p.m. ByHalBwk NEW ORLEANS (AP) Baseball's week that wus turned out (o be a busy one for the Montreal Expos, who made the most trades, but may have been a better one for the B.al- llmoro Orioles, who seem to have made Iho best ones. The Expos, emphasizing youth, completed four of the 14 deals made at the winter meetings, unloading veterans Willie Davis and. Ron Fairly in separate transactions that ad- ded a quartet of young pros- pects pitcher Don Stanhousp and infielder Pete Mackanin from Texas for Davis, and first baseman Ed Kurpiel and in- fielder Rudy Kinard from St. Louis for Fairly. In their other deals, the Ex- pos acquired pitchers Dave McNally and Bill Kirkpatrick and outfielder Rich Coggins from Baltimore for outfielder Ken Singleton and pitcher Mike Torrez, and got pitcher Woodie Fryman from Detroit for pitcher Tom Walker and catcher Terry Humphrey. One of Two The McNally-Singleton deal was one of two that Baltimore pulled off which had overtones of an Oriole edge. In (he other, the Orioles acquired Veteran National League slugger Lee May and minor league out- fielder Jay Schleuter from Houston For rookie infielder Rob Andrews and infielder- 'outfielder Enos Cabell. Thus, the Orioles added May, a slugging first baseman, who has averaged 32 homers per year since 1969, Singleton a right fielder, who has averaged 76 runs batted in per season for the last three years, as well as a useful right-handed pitcher. The price for all that was 3 Records for C.R. AAU Girls ROCK ISLAND.Ill- The Cedar Rapids girls AAU swimming team earned three first places and set three Iowa records in placing third at the Id-team Rock Island Relays here Saturday. The. 13-and-over 200-yard medley relay team of Tanya Roach.'Carrie Ferguson. Julie Baly and Sandy Sherman placed first and also set a record. Roach, Sherman, Liirrie Sherman and Barb Mefford set a record in the free relay also. Sherman and Baty also claimed a first place each. Jill Klinge, Carrie Goode, Diane Kellenberger and K. Smith set an Iowa record while finishing second in the 11-12 200 medley relay. Smith, Goode. Kellenberger and L. Smith took first in the 200 free relay. McNiilly, W. who has a 46-44 record for the last three seasons, Coggins, who was a platoon player, and three youngsters who did not figure in the Orioles' plans for next year. "We came here looking for somil sock and we got said General Manager Frank Cashen. Baltimore moved boldly after the New York Yankees, runner-up lo the Orioles in the AL East last season, grabbed Bobby Bonds in an inter-league trade before the meetings. Other Trades Other major trades during the week sent reliever Tug McGraw lo Philadelphia in a six-player deal that brought outfielder Del Unser to the New York Mels, outfielder Tommy Harper from Boston to Mil- waukee for infielder Bobby Heise, and pitcher Clyde Wright from Milwaukee to Texas for pitcher Pete Broberg. One of the most intriguing transactions of the week was the deal in which the Chicago White Sox sold controversial first baseman Dick Allen to the .Atlanta Braves. Allen had an- nounced his retirement from baseball in September but did not file official papers and the Braves thought they might be able to lure him back. But 24 hours after the deal, Atlanta officials received a telegram signed by Allen in which he declined to join them, "at this time." "That's the key." said one Braves' executive. "The While Sox got Ihe same kind of wire from him when they got him from Los Angeles three years ago." The Allen non- one of 15 involving 39 players. Last year, 26 trades involving 58 players were made at the winter meetings. The slower pace this time may have been due lo Ihe owners voting an additional inter-league trading period to run from March 16-31. Thai unanimous decision relieved any pressure general managers might have felt to complete their negotiations by the Friday midnight deadline. "Now we can wail and see what happens in spring one GM said. As a result, several trades were left pending. Included among the players prominently mentioned Ihis week but not dealt were out- fielder Rusly Staub of the Mets, first baseman Tony Perez of Cincinnati and catcher Bill Freehan of Detroit On the administrative front, Commissioner Bowie Kuhn called il "an unusually good week. There was an awful lot of agreement on an awful lot of the commissioner said. Christmas Hours OPEN SUNDAYS 1 DAILY SATURDAY FUN TO GET!
