The success of the initial tjames, held in Plnchcr Creek, was overwhelming. From the oulhern Alberta regions, of which there are 10, some 000 athletes from six to 86 took sart in the proceedings. Com- petition started at the district e v e 1, advancing to the r'e- ;ional finals and then to the ;ames themselves. Last year some athletes came to Pincher Creek and were in parades and slept in school buildings. It was, to say he least, amazing. When the dust had cleared at 'incher Creek, the uppermost PALMER MISSES Arnold Palmer, left, turns his back on a missed putt on the 18th green at Laurel Valley Golf Club here scene of the PGA National Team Championship, Friday afternoon during first round play.

Arnie, Nicklaus leading by one L1GONIER, Pa. (AP) Ar- nold Palmer and Jack Nicklaus combined their massive talents for a stunning nine-under-par 62 an eagle by Palmer a first-round lead in the rain-delayed PGA na- tional team championship Fri- day. The defending champions and pre-tourney favorites in this event in which scoring is based on the better ball of each two- man team, held a one-stroke lead over former U.S. Open champion Orville Moody and Australian Bruce Crampton in at 63. Bloody, attempting to battle his way out of a lengthy slump, rolled in a 30-foot birdie putt on the extremely difficult finishing hole to give his team second. Palmer got his eagle on the 412-yard 10th, holing a 150-yard seven iron shot on one hop. Tied for third at 64 were for- mer champions George Archer and Bobby Nichols, John Schlee and Bob Smith and hvb sets of brothers, Dave and Mike Hill and John and Dick Lolz. A pair of former Master's champions. Bob Goalby and Art Wall, headed a group of five teams at 66.

The first year was an experiment. A chance to see how well a ven- ture of this type would be ac- cepted. The response demand- ed a repeat performance for not just this year but many more to come. The format for the games will change only in that one more spoil has been added, tennis. "With the emphasis on sports which do not get the ne- cessary said Gibb, "we fell thai tennis was a good addition to the list of sports."
