"This Is the finest strategy golf course in the the Masters titleholder said as he prepared for his final tuneup on the wind-whipped Pebble Beach layout. "You have to use your head to win here. Like Augusta, it is a position course. You must place your tea shots in the right position." Nicklaus needs to add the U.S. and British opens and the U.S. PGA to his list of 12 major championships to complete a sweep that has escaped all golf- ing giants of the past, It was at Pebble Beach that he won one of bis two U.S. ama- teur (itlcs, in 1961, and the Crosby in 19 67 and 1972.

By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS The pitching Perrys did their hing Tuesday night and, for may have been Uie first me ever in their careers, Jim I'ound up wetter than Gaylord. Bailers have always accused jaylord of loading up the base- all with somelhing moist but hey couldn't blame Jim if he i'as serving wet ones against Detroit Tigers. That's what hap- xjns when you're working in the ain. Tornado warnings kept Min- esola fans on their toes Tues- [ay night and the Twins man- god to get six innings of their ;ame in against Detroit with Perry winning, 3-1. It was drier in California, vhere brother Gaylord Perry ried for his llth victory of the eason for Cleveland Indians jut lost to the Angels 3-2 in 11 nnings. Elsewhere in the American xjague, Chicago White Sox ilanked New York Yankees 2-0, Texas Rangers shut out Milwau ;ee Brewers 4-0, Kansas City Royals topped Boston Red Sox -2 and Baltimore Orioles de- eated Oakland Athletics 5-1. IAKE IT TO 71 h The Twins and Tigers spent liree hours, 26 minutes on the ield in Minnesota and only f that time was taken up with ilaying baseball. There was n 0-minute rain delay in the ourth inning and then, when he game resumed, the teams made it into the seventh before he skies opened again. By that time, Perry and the Twins were leading 3-1 and root ng for the moisture to keep coming. Rod Carew drove in -wo of Minnesota's runs with a pair of singles and Tony Oliva jicked up his first RBI with an- other hit. Gaylord mowed down the first 12 California batters and took a 2-0 lead into the seventh inning But Mickey Rivers doubled anrother, Bill, a two-year veteran vith the Leafs after several sea- ons on Canada's national team, s also reported negotiating 'with he Saints. He was taken by At- anta in the expansion diaft. Bobby MacMillan signed wilh he Fighting Saints despite an llth-hour plea from Rangers [eneral manager-coach Emile Francis. "I just talked to Francis about 30 minutes said the young forward. "He told me I was making a big mistake. "But his offer wasn't as much as here. That was it." WHA close to signing Bobby Hull? ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) The World Hockey Associa- tion, speeding up ils raids on rival National Hockey League rosters, is in the final stages of completing a million package to lure Bobby Hull away from the Chicago Black Hawks.

One stipulation of the deal Is that the WHA or Winnipeg Jets or both purchase a 700- acre farm near Winnipeg. Ben Hatskin, trustee and president' of the Jets, was quoted as saying last week that he was shopping for a 700-acre farm "and it isn't for me." Hull, the 33-year-old left wmg who has 604 career NHL goals, has told newspapers in Chicago and Denver the last three weeks that he will sign if the WHA comes up wilh the money. "All we need Is Hull lo really open the a high WHA source said. Aaron's 650th the difference By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS "When I heard that thing I knew it was time to go said Atlanta Braves pitcher Pat Jarvis. The "thing" was Hank Aaron's bat and the "pop" was his 650th career home run, a whack that helped Atlanta beat ttie clownish New York Mets 6-5 in 10 innings Tuesflay night. For the second straight night, New York centre fielder Tom- mie Agee committed a crucial error that permitted a late At- lanta comeback. Aaron's drive, moving him loser to Babe Ruth's record 14, was belted deep into lelt- entre field. But he would have ever had the chance had not dropped his line drive in he eighth inning. Trend shoivs they just may be Pep pills 011 their way out? MONTREAL (CP) Three doctors indicated Tuesday that there is a trend away from the use of pep pills by professional athletes in Canada. Dr. Doug Kinncar, an intern- who handles Montreal Carta- Hcns of the National Hockey League, said he has always boon opposed to any drug or "pep-pill" use. "If you looked at the medical cabinet in the he said, "you'd think the hockey club vas bankrupt. I don't believe in CliUgS. "In any event I just haven't found that many players asking for this stuff, except for a cou- ple who seem to need it in the playoffs. "The only thing I'll prescribe for them is a sedative for those who feel they need it after a game. Just to unwind." Dr. Bob Broderick of Mont- real Expos of the National League said that in the baseball team's first year there were two players on the pill habit. "This year we don't have anyone tak- ing them to my knowledge." Dr. Grant Stewart, former team doctor with Toronto Argo- nauts of the Eastern Football Conference, said that three years ago the use of drugs was widespread on the team. "Players were coming from the States feeling they had to have bennies (benzedrine) or something similar to play Ihe game. It seems a lot of them had lieen on them regularly since high school." Dr. Stewart, an Australian who moved Ms practice from Toronto to Calgary this year, continued: "When that happens you've got two choices: Turn your back and have them get the stuff o. their own and wind up takini Lord only knows what by mis lake, or supply it yourself. "With the Argos we chose t supply the pills and keep trac of everything, while trying ti, wean the players off them a we went along. "That became easier as we went along and more and more of the side effect became known. "Last year there were only four Argonauts who took the stuff before games. And they just felt they couldn't perform without it." Two innings plenty for Juniors Lethbridge Hotel Juniors cored seven runs after two nnings of play and went on to drop the M and K Generals 7-4 n City Commercial Men's Fast- lall League action Tuesday night.
