SOUTHPORT, England (CP) Tony Jacklin of England shot a second-round three-under-par 70 today and took the early lead in the British open golf, champi- onship with a 36-hole total of 139, seven under par. Jacklin, a former U.S. and British Open Champion, shared the first-round lead. Other early finishers who were in contention were Roberto de Vicenzo and Jim. Kinsella, a 32- year-old Irish World Cup player. De Vicenzo, who won the Brit- ish Open in 1967, carded a 70 over the par 35-38, Royal Birkdale course for 141 vhile Kinsella came in with a 68 or 142. The other first-round leaders with four-under Johnson and Lee Trevino of the United States and Vicente Fer- nandez of late starters. TREVINO SPARKLES Trevino made a brilliant start Wednesday in his bid to win three national titles inside a month. Victory for Trevino would add the British title to the United States and Canadian Open titles ic won recently in succession. But he will have to produce his sparkling best to hold off his rivals. In 'addition to his three co-leaders, seven men were bracketed at 70 and those at 71 included former British Open winners Jack Nicklaus of the U.S., Gary Player of South Af- rica and Argentinian de Vicen- zo. STILL CONFIDENT Nicklaus headed into today's second round smiling ruefully but still speaking with confi- dence about his chances of pick- ing up the ancient crown for the third time. "If you can take bogey sixes on the last two holes and still be only two shots behind the lead- ers then it can't be all said Nicklaus, who won the title last year in a playoff against Doug Sanders. "Frankly I don't want to dis- cuss the greens. We all know what they're like. It's the golf course we came to play, so let's play it." Nicklaus, favorite to conquer Royal Birkdale's par-73 layout, made a dismal finish after looking poised to move into a clear lead. With three holes to play he was four under par, but he crashed with sixes on the last two holes and was clearly upset "I have no comment to make1 until I cool he said. "The greens were very slow but they did not really affect my game. I don't know, maybe they did, maybe they didn't." Australian Peter Thomson, bidding for his sixth victory in the British Open, was at 70 along with Billy Casper, former U.S. Open champion, and Kel Nagle, the veteran Aussie who won the title at St. Andrews in 1960. Two men whose names don't often crop up in world golf also were at the 70 mark. They were John O'Leary of Ireland and Liang Huan Lu of Taiwan, win- ner of '.he Philippines and Thai- land Opens. Charles Coody, the U.S. Mas- ters champion, slipped to a 74 along with Dave Stockton, win- ner of the U.S. PGA title in 1970. The field will be cut to the low 90 after today's second round. Then it will be reduced to the low 60 for the climactic round Saturday. HEADED FOR 6S "I was heading for a 66 but somehow I wound up with a Nicklaus said of his first round. "The funny thing was that I played a good game all day. I holed a shot from a bunker at the seventh. So I suppose even a blind squirrel finds an acorn once in a while." Said Trevino: "I scrambled a bit yesterday (Wednesday) and I agree with Jack that some of the greens are too bumpy. "But I'm not complaining. I'll settle for what I scored."

He drew the Canadian-bred horse George Royal for the 27th running of the San Juan Capistrano, Calif., in 1966, the year he retired. "He hadn't run very well but I believed in that animal. I put every bit of my experience into that horse. It was a photo finish but I was on my way to the winner's circle before the results came out." As well as money and ac- colades, however, Longden also collected five broken arms all the same arm and two dislocated shoulders. At 49 he was warned by doc- tors that the next race could be his last but he went on to run more before hanging up his spurs. Giants move? TRENTON, N.J.
