Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 3, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Seven birdies turn trick Art Wall moves past field SECOND ROUND LEADER-Art Wall Jr., of Honesdayle a putt go during the second round at the Can- adian Open in Montreal Friday. Wall fired c par 67 to go leven-under par for two rounds and take the lead. Miners tough this season Two doubleheaders are sche- duled in the Southern Alberta Senior Baseball League Sunday. The unbeaten and league leading Lethbridge Junior Min- ers will travel to Medicine Hat for a brace of games wihile the Pincher Creek Chlnooks will maka a trip to Milk River. The Miners who seem to have all the big guns on the mound this season haven't had too much trouble winning their games. Rod Taylor a top south-paw prospect, Randy Maxwell and lanky Randy Wolsencroft have combined to become a power- ful battery second to no others. In the Miner's batting line-up Bob Turner, Tim Negrello and Maxwell have added the punch needed to produce the runs. With this array of talent the Miners could very easily take the SASBL crown this season. Friday night at Henderson Park the Miners continued to roll right along as Taylor fired a one-hitter at Foremost in a 19-0 victory. Bruce Natrass took the loss. Taylor fanned 11 on his way to the victory and aided his MONTREAL (CP) The Canadian Open moved into its second-last day today with 78 golfers still in contention for the top prize and 47- year-old Art Wall Jr. leading the way. Wall, from Honesdale, Pa., fired a second-round 67 Friday over .the par-72 Richelieu Valley course to vault into the lead one stroke ahead of Lou Graham of Nashville, Tenn. Grouped behind Wall and Gra- ham, who had two-round totals of 137 and 138 respectively, were Phil Rodgers and Herb Hooper with 139s and Rod Fun- teth with a 140. The slim, greying Wall fired seven birdies en route to his 67. He told reporters he was pleased with his performance because "I only made a couple of mental errors out there today." "The last couple of months I've been kind of sputtering along but for the two days here my tempo has been a little bet- ter." WON IT ONCE The veteran of 21-years on the pro golf tour is attempting to win his second Canadian Open. He won the event in 1960 at To- ronto St. George's. He came second in the 1967 Open at the .Montreal Municipal course but lost in a subsequent playoff to Billy Casper. Graham, who shared the lead with three others after Thurs- day's first round, was nol pleased with Friday's second 18 holes in which he fired four birdies and went one over par on three holes. "I didn't play very well he said. "I didn't drive the ball good at all. I was in the fairway bunkers twice and the rough most of the time." The 33-year-old Graham said the course was tougher for the second round than it was Thursday. "The pin placements were very difficult, much tougher than yesterday. It wasn't unfair though." Rodgers, Funseth and Rol Deming were tied with Graham for the lead after the first round but none could match their opening-round scores Friday, DEMING SOARS Deming, from Monominie Mich., soared to a 75 after his initial round of 67. A par round by Rodgers kep the La Jqlla, Calif., pro close t the leaders while Hooper, from (8 his first time out. Bunched at 142, two-under on Jie tournament, were Deming, Harris, New Zealander iob Charles and R. H. Slkes. Many of the big names in pro- essional golf found the second round a frustrating experience. Arnold Palmer, with his 'army" faithfully dogging his own cause with four hits in- cluding a double and three sin- gles. Rick Campbell chipped in with a double and three singles as well while Turner stroked a triple and two singles.

Andreachvik leads way Men's final ready LONDON (Reuter) John 'fewcombe, 27-year-old Austral- an professional, defends his Wimbledon men's singles title today against Stan Smith, the American army private, in a final between two of the biggest litters in the game. Smith, 24, who is seeded No. places below New- combe, is quietly confident he can become the first American men's champion at the All-Eng- land Lawn Tennis Champion- ships since Chuck McKinley triumphed in 1963. But Newcome, champion In 1967 and 1970 and runner-up to Rod Laver in 1969, is the favor- ite. He has come through the field in superb style, exempli- fied by his crashing win over Ken Rosewall in the semi-finals on Thursday. Says Newcombe: "I have been pacing myself for this, and I think I can win." Of Smith's game, Newcombe said: "Stan's service is his big weapon. It is a telling point. K will depend on how many first services he can get into play." Smith, a lanky blonde from Pasadena, Calif., said: "I'm playing some of the best tennis I've ever played. It should be a matter of putting it all together tomorrow." On his plan of attack, Smith said: "John serves well, accur- ately and comes to the net very fast so I'll be trying to hit some good returns against htm.
