In Bantam action, the Kins- men Bantams defeated the YMCA Bantams 10-3, By RED SMITH New York Times Service NEW YORK The tiling to remember is that the horse that finished last had broken the Kentucky Derby record. If there were no colt named Secretariat, then Sham would have gone into the Belmont Stakes Saturday honored as the finest three-year-old in Amer- ica, an eight length winner of the Kentucky Derby where he went the mile and a quar- ter faster than any, winner in 98 years, and eight-length win- ner of the Preakness. There is, however, a- colt named Secretariat. In the Derby he overtook Sham and beat him by two and a half lengths. In the Preakness he held Sham off by two and a half lengths. This time he and Sham duel- ed for the lead, and he beat Sham by mare than a 16th of a mile. There is no better way to measure the class of the gorgeous red colt that owns the Triple Crown. Turning into the home stretch at Belmont Park, Ron glanced back under an arm to find his pusruit. He saw nothing, and while he peeked, his mount took off. Secretariat had already run a mile in one minute, 34 1-5 seconds. Up to three weeks ago, no horse in Belmont his- tory had run a mile in less than 2-5. He had run a mile and a quarter in two-fifths of a second fast- er than the Derby record he had set five weeks earlier. Now he went after the Bel- mont record of 3-5 for a mile and a half, which was also an American record when Gallant Man establish- ed it 16 years ago. With no pursuit to urge him on. without a tap from Turcotte's whip, he smash- ed the track record by two and a fifth, and if Tur- cotte had asked him he could have broken the world rec- ord. If he had been running against Gallant Man, the fastest Belmont winner in 104 years, he would have won by 13 lengths. Unless the com- petition spurred him to great- er speed. "It seems a little greedy to win by 31 said Mrs. John Tweedy, the owner. She then repeated the rider's story of how he saw the fractional times bunking on the tote board, realized there was a record in the making, and went after it in the final 16th. It is hard to imagine what a 31-length margin looks like because you never see one, but Secretariat lacked eight panels of fence 30 feet of beating Twice A Prince by a 16th of a mile. This was the classic-case of ''eclipse first, the rest nowhere." Tire colt was entitled to his margin and his record. At the Derby he drew record crowd that broke all Church- ill Downs betting records and he set a track record. He set attendance and betting rec- ords at the Preakness 'and may have broken tlie stakes record but if he did, discrep- ancies in the clocking denied him that credit. Last Satur- day belonged to him. Indeed, Belmont was kinder to the Meadow Stable than Pimlico had been, in more ways than one. On Preakness day while the Tweedy party lunched in the Pimlico Hotel near the track, a parking lot attendant smashed up their car, They walked to the clubhouse gate, found they hadn't brought credentials, and paid their way in. While the horses were being sad- dled in the infield, some- body in the crowd acciden- tally pressed a lighted cigar- ette against Mrs. Tweedy's arm. On his way back to his seat, John Tweedy had his pocket picked. he said after that race, "we needed to win this one today, just to get even.'" At Belmont there were the few scattered boos that most odds on favorites receive here, but the prevailing atti- tude was close to idolatry. Well, perhaps that isn't the best word because it suggests a cathedral restraint. Idols are remotely chilly. This congregation was warm. Horse players passing the Tweedy box raised friendly voices: "Mrs. Tweedy, good luck." "Thank you." The voices followed her to the paddock where her colt cheered all around the walking ring. They followed as she returned to the club- house. "Mrs. Tweedy, good luck." "Thank you." Secretariat was cheered in the post parade, cheered is he entered the gate, and when he caught and passed Sham on the backstretch the exul- tant thunders raised goose- flesh. At the finish the crowd surged toward the winner's circle, fists brandished high. After 25 years, America's rac- ing fans had a soverlegn to. wear the Triple Crown. Parallels are striking be-. tween this one and his pre- decessor. Citation. Both raced nine times as two- year-olds and finished first eight times. At three, each lost once en route to the Derby, Preakness and Bel- mont. Both made each went in the Triple Crown easier than the last. After the Bel-" mont, Citation won his next 10 starts for a streak of 16 straight. Secretariat's stud duties won't permit that. Love will rear its pretty, tousled head.

"I'm really looking forward to it." said the man who, with the dramatic suddenness of a summer storm, has become the game's hottest performer. "I had a goal. I'd never be- fore won two tournaments back to back. Now I've done that. Now I have a new goal. I want to win the Open. To do it, I'll have to play awfully ter than I have the last couple of weeks. ''But if I can dnve it in the fairway and keep on hitting my irons like I've been doing, well, I think I'll have a very good chance." Weiskopf's triumph at Phila- delphia Sunday came on the heels of victories at the Colonial National and the Kemper Open, and he was second in the At- lanta Classic. In those four weeks he has won "Winning is the hardest thing to said Weiskopf, who made it look easy in Phila- delphia. "There's always pres- sure on you, whether you win by one or six. "If I don't get an ulcer in the next month it will be an amaz- ing thing." Asked if his sudden streak put even more pressure on him in the U.S. Open at Oakmont, Fa., Weiskopf said: "Someone, I don't remember who, said that we all create our own pressure. I think that's true. "If you stand there and think about water to the right and trap to the left and the trouble and all the things that can go wrong, you're creating your own pressure. "But if you stand over the shot and say 'I have the ability to execute this then com- mit yourself to it, well, that's something else."

Taylor, charged as the result of a wild Dec. 29 National Hockey League game against Vancouver Canucks, was also fined on the charge. Judge Eckardt gave Taylor 30 days to pay or face an additional 30 days in jail. Defence counsel Thomas Fisher said the sentence would be appealed and Taylor was re- leased on bail in his own recognizance. The conviction creates an im- mediate problem for Taylor, a Canadian. He could be barred from entering the United States and crossing the border to play hockey. John Boyd, district director oE United States immigration in Seattle, said assaulting a police offcer is considered a crime "of moral turpitude" in the U.S., and those convicted are barred from entry. He said however, that Taylor can apply for special per- mission to enter and, in the cir- cumstances of the case, it would probably be granted. TOLD TO APPLY SOON Mr. Boyd said Taylor should make immediate application be- cause "so far as we are con- cerned, he has been convicted and without a special order he may not get back in." He said the charges against five other players are not classed as "mcral turpitude." During the Dec. 29 game, a number of Flyers players in- vaded the stands, swinging their sticks, and in one case a police officer was knocked to the floor. Judge Eckardt said he was not unmindful "of the previous good character of the accused that he played minor and junior hockey in this country, was a member of Team Canada and played hockey in the Olym- pics. "But I am dearly mindful of the Dec. 29 actions which were certainly not an example for junior hockey in this city, prov- ince, Canada and the the judge said. "Police in British Columbia and more particularly in Van- couver have been subjected to increasing abuse and he said. "Surely a sentence here must be a deterrent, and it is my cluty and responsibility to pro- tect poiice." TAYLOR APOLOGIZES Before sentencing, Mr. Fisher said 'laylor baa "noi sougnt out police 10 assault; in fact he apologized to tne police officer immediately after it had oc- curred. "This is an incident which would prooabiy never Have oc- curred had it not been for spectator involvement and Tay- lor should not have been singled said Mr. Fisher. Taylor pleaded guilty to the charge Friday. At the same time, fines were leviea against deiencemen Barry Ashbee, Ed Van Impe and Joe Watson and iorwaras Don Saleski and William Flell alter lliey pleaded guilty to charges of causing a disturb- ance uy lighting and swearing. They were given 30 days to pay or lace 30 uays in jau. Centre Ross Lonsberry had also pieatiea guilty 10 a charge of causing a disturbance by lighting and swearing, but later in the proceedings prosecutor Stewart McMorran asked that the pica be struck and a slay of proceedings entered. Mr. McMorran said he was Lonsberry would be found not guilty. One of two defence witnesses called Friday, NHL president Clarence Campbell, said this wag the first time in league his- tory that player-specta tor con- frontations had come before a court of law. The Dec. 29 incident began with less than eight minutes played in the third period. Bob Kelly of the Flyers and Jim Hargreaves of the Canucks began to fight and other players on the ice paired off. A second fight between Saleski and Barry Wilcox began at the boards. A fan then reached over the glass and pulled Saleski's shoul- der-length hair. Philadelphia players immediately charged to the spot and climbed over the boards, swinging their sticks. Some women and children were struck, though none seriously. Constable Don Brown of the1 Vancouver police department- attempted to stop the fight. Taylor swore and pushed him over the seats. Constable Brown then protected a six-year-old girl with his body and while he was lying down, Taylor stepped'-, on him. Purkey died from heart failure GRAND JUNCTION, Colo.
