'The time to get excited, I mean really Gaylord said after chalking up his fifth victory, "is after we hit a slump. Then let's see how quickly we can fight our way out of it and see what happens to our confidence. "If we don't lose our confi- dence when we lose a couple, of games, it'll be time enough to get excited. In the meantime, this momentum is great." The momentum is eight victo- ries in nine games and Caylord has some of his own with three straight triumphs and an earned run average that has dipped to 2.02. ramplon impressed The head in something approach- ing awe. He was not alone. This may be the only tourna- ment on the long, 12-month tour where the players watch the gallery as much or more than the gallery watches the players. The touring pros are unani- mous in their choice of this one as the tour's top girl- watching tournament. What- ever is next is a distant sec- ond. Concentration on golf is difficult. LOOK! LOOK! LOOK! It's sometimes called the Eye-Ball Open. The gals come out in droves and coveys and flocks. It's traditional that they all wear new and skimpy clothing. There are pink hot pants, jump-suits, hip-huggers, bare-midriffs, see throughs. The gallery shows more na- vels than an orange grove. Tournament officials are quick to point out, however, that nine of the top 10 money winners are among the select, 102-man field in this event that now is the only invita- tional, tesides the Masters, on the schedule. The leading contenders for the first prize are Lee Trevino, Chi Chi Rodriguez, George Archer, Charles Coody and Cramplon.

Jim scattered nine hits and needed ninth-inning relief help before notching his third victory and enabling Minnesota to open its American League West lead over Oakland to games. "I threw ahout 10 more pilches than I normally do" in a full nine innings, Jim said. "I didn't walk anybody but I sure had a lot of three-ball counts and it seems the innings were longer." Jim noted he's never pitched against his brother before ex- cept in spring was with San Francisco of the National League before being traded to Cleveland before this added: "I don't think the managers would shuffle the pitching rota- tion to get us against each other. But I think it would be good for both of us and good for base- ball, especially if both of U3 pitched a good game." They'll have to wait about a month before getting the chance. The Indians and Twins meet for Ihe first time this sea- son June 9 in Cleveland.
