Crash Claims Courage ZANDVOORT (Reuters) -Jochen Rindt of Axistoia driving a Lotus 72 Ford led al the way Sunday to win the Dutch Grand Prix in a Formula 1 motor race marred by tlie death of Piers Courage of Britain. Rindt finished ahead of Jackie Stewart of Scotland in a March Ford and JacWe Ickx of Belgium in a Fen-ari. Courage was killed in the 23rd lap of the 80-lap race when his Tomaso Ford left the road, rolled over and burst into flames. The fire was so fierce that adjoining woodland was set ablaze. Firemen were driven back by the flames. No other cars were invdved in the accident. Ckjurage, 28, was the second Formula 1 driver kOled this month. On June 2, Bruce McLaren of New Zealand died when he crashed dxuing a test drive at Goodwood, England. Courage, rated one of the most improved drivers in 1969, shot into Formula 1 prominence when he finished second in last year's Monaco and American Grand Prix. CRASHED IN APRIL In April, Courage walked from the track imhurt after his Tomaso' 505 crashed during qualifying trials for the Spanish Grand Prix in Madrid. He was heir to one of Brit-ain's largest brewery businesses. Courage married Lady Sarah, a half sister of the Earl of Howe, in 1966. They have two sons, Jason 2, and Amos, who was bom in February. His wife was in the pits at the time of the accident. After Sunday's race, Stewart jumped into the lead of the world drivers championship table with 19 points. He was champion last year. Rindt, who won tlie Monaco Grand Prix last month, moved into second place with 18 points. With Rindt more than 30 seconds ahead of the field, Stewart took over second place from Ickx on the 50th lap and Clay Reggazoni of Switzerland swept into third place in his Ferrari.

Italian coach Ferruccio Val-careggi, glumly paid Brazil the best compliment in his dressing room after Italy's 4-1 defeat. "The BraziUans played as if tJhey had wings," Valcareggi said. Since Brazil began the long road to the World Cup last August, the team never dropped its attacking brand of soccer. They trounced Paraguay, Colombia and Venezuela to reach the final round. They walloped Czechoslovakia 4-1, edged England 1-0 and beat Romania 3-2. In the quarter-finals, Peru succumbed 4-2, and Uruguay fell 3-1 in the semi-fi-na'ls. Twelve straight victories -without a single tie-gave the Brazilians possession of the golden cup which they had won twice before. Brazil did not start off as the favorite. Over aibundance of talent rather than lack of it was the problem. EVEN PELE THREATENED Even the great Edson Arantes do Nascimento, knovm to all as simply Pele, had his place on the team threatened because of alleged incompatibility with Tostao. But Pele, playing his third winning World Cup finals, proved the prophets Avrong as he scored the first Bra^an goal of the game, a header from six yai'ds. , Tliere was talk that Braril had too many forwards and not enough talented backs. The controversy culminated in the firing of coach Jao Sal-dania and his replacement by Mario Jorge Lobo Zagalo, one of the men who won Ihe World Cup for Brazil in 1958 and 1962.

(AP) - Mark Donohue, the 1968 and 1969 T r a n s -A m driving champion, won his fii-st race of the season by a comfortable margin in the Marlboro 200 Sunday. The victory also was the first for American Motors' Javelin m tliis series for compact sports sedans that is heavily endowed by the Detroit manufacturers. ^ Zagalo kept to a methodical plan which provided 130 days of pre-World Cup traming for the players. The Brazilians were the fu-st of the 16 finalists teams to arrive in Mexico, on May 1. Their $1,000,000 training plan was meticulously arranged down to the last black bean, which was imparted specially from Brazil. More than 250 crates of equipment, medicine and food were ^pped to Mexico. Once here, the players were rigidly pro- tected by private guards and a strict training routine. But organization did not win the Brazilians the World Cup. It was the brilliant sprinting and di-ibblmg of such players as Jairsinho, wlxo scared a goal in every game. It was the midfield B.C., Ontario Dominate Track Team Chosen HAMILTON* (CP) - Ontario and British Columbia athletes dominated the weekend trials to select a 58-member Canadian track and field team for the British Commonwealth Games. Ontario placed 32 men and women on the team that goes to Edmbm-gh for the July 16-25 Games and the B.C. contingent took 21 places. Alberta has three members on the team, Saskatchewan and Manitoba one each. The rest of the country is not represented. Tlie team carries 21 women and 37 men. Among thte surprises hi the two-day meet were the lack of a serious contender for the men's 100-metre dash and the defeat of veteran Abby in the women's 800 metres. Veteran Harry Jerome, former world record holder, was the only sprinter Friday and Saturday to meet the 10.4-sec-ond standard in the 100 metres when he won the semi-fmal. But he went lame and did not contest the fmal in which the four leadmg runners' recorded a time of 10.6. Two members of the Lethbridge Track and Field Club took part in the games trials but neither were able to make the team. George Smith placed fourtih in the 400 - metre hurdles in a time of 53.3 seconds. The mark bettered his old Alberta record of 54.2 but it wasn't good enough to make the team. He had trouble with the last hurdle and it cost him a place with tlie national squad. Joyce Ober was fifth in tlie 100 - metre dash in a time of 14.8 seconds. Doug Chapman of Vancouvei* earlier hit the 10.4 standard but passed up the trials to attend the United States Amateur Athletic Association meet in Des Mouies, Iowa. He has been named to the Gam^es team for the 200 metres but may also run in the 100. Miss Hoffman, the Toron- tonian who won a gold medal in the 1966 British Empire Games, was beaten Saturday in tlie 800 by Noreen Liepins of Vancouver. Mrs. Liepins, a 26-year-old mother of two said she had trained for two years to beat Abby. "I concentrated so hard on the 800 that I lost the 1,500. But now that I've accomplished what I was after, I can go back and concentrate on my specialty again." Another beaten veteran was Irene PiotrowsM of Vancouver, fourth in the 200 metres. She lost to Patti Lbverock and Stephanie Berto, both of Vancouver, and Jan Maddin of Winnipeg. Both Clubs Wm In Soccer Play Both Lethbridge Soc c e r teams came up with weekend victories. In Lethbridge, the Golden West Bombers dropped the visiting Taber United side 5-2 in Southern Alberta Soccer League action. Lethbr i d g e Royals travelled to Calgary Sunday and came away with a 3-1 victory in Calgary - Lethbridge Inter-CSty League play. Kurt Ruff paced the Bombers to their win over Taber as he fired home a pair of goals. Al Weirsma, Robert DeGroot and Ron Lowe each found the range once. John Stropnik scored two goals to spark the Royals to their second straight win over Calgary. Peter Durrans got the Undefeated LONDON (AP) - Rod Laver of Austraha downed John New-combe 64, 6-3 today in the finals' of the London igrass courts championships, a possible rehearsal for the Wimbledon final. But the real excitement of the day was left to the women where Mrs. Margaret Court of Australia, also the top seed for Wimbledon, overcame Winnie Shaw of Britain 2-6, 8-6, 6-2 for the women's title.

Until the first half, the game looked like a tossup despite constant Brazilian attaclis. But m the second half, drained by tension and effort, the Italian defence crumbled. Gerson, Jairzinho and ri^t back Carlos Alberto came through with three quick goals to make the Brazilian triumph total. And, of course, there was Pele, playing what he said would be Ills last World Cup. He stayed fai-ther back than usual but came to the fore with piercing bursts of speed, smiling wanly when he missed a shot at goal. As usual he was closely guai'ded, and as usual he engaged in his protesting hystrion-ics, trj'ing io cinvince the referee to call fouls or penalties. When it was over, the Brazilians, cro^vd favorites from tfaa start, received the cheers of the 112,000 fans as they ran around the pitch. OUiers were carried on fans' shoulders and escorted by harried poUce. Tostao was nearly stripped nude by wild fans grabbing his jersey, shorts, socks and shoes as souvenirs.
