Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - February 26, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta S - THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD - Mcneloy, February lb, 1973 aren looKing snarp BRAT1SLA\'A (CP.) - "It's simply a question of mathematics," Karen Magnussen of Vancouver joked after a dazzling free skating display in this Czechoslovakia city late Sunday. "At every world championship I've bettered myself by one placing except in 1969 when I had to retire hurt. I've got down to second so this should be the year. Mind, there is the human element to be taken into cinsideration." Earlier Karen had mesmerized a captive crowd of spectators with her free-skating routine while practising for the 1973 world figure skating tournament. At one stage, she slipped, crashing into the perimeter barrier. But she jumped up, brushed herself off and continued the routine. I fall once a day regularly as clockork," she said in her dressing room afterwards. "I only hope I'll have had my fall for the day before I go into the competitions." Karen's hopes for a gold medal have never been stronger. Not having a world champion to compete against Austrian Trixie Scuba, last year's queen of the rink, now skates professionally-Karen feels the Bratislava championships are wide open. Karen's coach, Linda Brauchkmann, has kept one eye! on the U .S. ladies' champion j Janet Lynn throughout rehearsals. "Janet and Karen have vied against teach other many time before," Linda said. "It's difficult to say one is better than the other although the Americans figures are not as good as her free skate. Karen is equally good at both." While it is generally felt the ladies' individual title will go lo one or the other, the blond 20-year-otd Canadian champion doesn't plan to make it a contest between herself and Janet. "There are many very good girls involved this'year and it could go to any one of them," Karen said. "It doesn't matter what is said or what is predicted, it all boils down to the question of skating on the day and skating to best of your ability." But during Sunday rehearsals the pretty Canadian stood out strongly against a background of other skaters as she glided gracefully then jumped and spun precisely to the music of Rachmaniiiov. "When I'm on Bratislava ice I feel like a bird," she said.

Lee Trevino backs in to win Gleason event Breaks drought lee Trevino smiles broadly as he holds up the Inver-rary golf tournament trophy. Forrest Fezler, the leader for three days, missed a putt on the 18th hole allowing Trevino to win. Trevino collected $52,000. FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) - Lee Trevino had a word of warning for Forrest Fezler, the heart-broken young man whose collapse let Trevino take the title and the $52,000 first prize in the Jackie Gleason golf tournament Sunday. "He'll be nervous again," a sober and subdued Trevino said. "I know. I've been there a lot more times than he lias. "There was a tremendous amount of pressure on him but there was a lot of pressure on me, too." Trevino, the current British Open champion but a non-winner since last September, benefitted from Fezler's shakey putting on the last two holes Sunday and won the tournament while in the clubhouse. LONG CHASE FOR LEE Trevino, who had broken 70 only once in the first seven weeks of the season, chased the front-running Fezler for 70 holes before finally acquiring his 14th American tour triumph with a par ri2 final round on the 7,128-yard Inverrary Golf Club course. He had a 279 total, nine under par and one in front of Fezler, a 23-year-old tour sophomore who was seeking his first vie-tory. Fezler, the leader through the first three rounds, blew to a fat 76 in the last round. Bob Murphy was third with a 71-281-but only Trevino really challenged Fezler. Austalian Bruce Devlin and Sam Snead, a CO-year-oId marvel from an other golfing era, followed at 282. Devlin had a 72 and Snead 71. Jack Nicklaus, the man most people expected to win this event that offered $260,000 in total prize money, finished with a 71-283. Arnold Palmer, a winner in his last previous start, finished with a 73 and was far back in the field at 292. Fezler started the last round with a three-stroke lead over Trevino and after the front nine still led by two. The margin held until they reached 526-yard, par five 15th. Trevino made it a birdie, but Fezler, playing well behind Trevino, hit a three-wood second shot to the left, dumped his chip in the trap, came out short and missed the long putt. It was a bogey that tied it. On the 17th, Fezler left a 30-foot putt about four feet short and missed that one for another bogey. "I wasn't thinking of the money," said Fezler, whose $29,640 cheque for second place was more than he won all his rookie season last year. "I was thinking about winning Uie tournament, and getting in the Masters and being exempt for two years."
