New Braunfels Hera\d-Zeitung Thursday, January 5,1984 7New match play format draws praise, grumbles
TUCSON, Arb. (AP) — Three days of competition ranain and golfs leading players are two days from their first match but PGA Tour Commissioner Deane Beman didn't hesitate to label the $1 million Seiko-Tucson Match Play Championship “already a great success."
"I think it will be very well received," Beman said Wednesday during second round play in the new event that offers more thanprizes in two brackets.
"But," Beman added, "that doesn’t mean that some players don't feel things should be a little different here and there."
That, of course, was in response to player criticism of the format which provided eight golfers with byes into the second round and gave passes to eight others—the leaders of the 1963 Seiko Grand Prix list — into the fifth round
Those leaders — Fuzzy Zoeller, Lanny Wadkins, Gil Morgan,, Ben Crenshaw, Tom Kite, Cal Peete and Tom Watson — are assured of $15,000.
Bob Gilder charged that amounts to "appearance money."
"He’s wrong," Beman said. “They won that off their performance last year.
"The format answers some of the age-old problems and liabilities of match play."
And, the commissioner said, match play, making its first appearance on the American Tour in more than a decade, will remain on the schedule but added that he dpate “a large number of match play events."
At least one player, senior Don January, will welcome
“That’s too much like work," said January, the leading money-winner on last year’s senior circuit, after his 3 and 2 decision over Jim Ferree.
Two of the* leading performers on the regular tour, Ray Floyd and Craig Stadler, were upset victims Wednesday. Each had received a bye in the first round. Floyd, however, watched tour sophomore Dan drop 18 and 12 foot birdie putts on the 15th and 16th holes for a 2 and I victory. Stadler blew a 3 up lead with four holes to play and lost to J.C. Snead’s 19th hole birdie.
In some other top second-round matches, Mark Mc-Cumber eliminated Bill Rogers 5 and 4, Dave Stockton took Wally Armstrong I up, Lee Elder beat John Mahaffey with a 19th hole birdie, Morris Hatalsky surprised Wayne Levi 2
and I, Jim Colbert got by Mike Nicolette I up, Payne Gilder I up and Curtis Strange won I up over Danny Edwards.
In seniors play, five-time British Open champ Peter Thomson of Australia eliminated Miller Barber 2 and I, Gay Brewer closed out Roberto de Vicenzo 3 and 2, Gene Littler beat Howie Johnson 5 and 4, Charles Sifford stopped Bill Johnston I up, Orville Moody won from Rod Funseth 4 and 3, Dan Sikes went to the 21st hole for a I up decision over Dan Sikes and Billy Cad a I up decision over Dong Sanders.
Today’s play was given over to the pro-am. The tournament, in both senior and regular tour brackets, resumes Friday and runs through Sunday.ScoreboardOn the air

Lakers dazzle Cavs as star guard returns to lineup
By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
A bit of “Magic" has returned to the Los Angeles Lakers.
Earvin “Magic" Johnson, who had been sidelined since Dec. 2 with a dislocated right index finger, unexpectedly came off the bench Wednesday night to play a big role in the Lakers’ 106-99 National Basketball Association victory over the Geveland Cavaliers.
The do-everything guard, sorely missed by the Lakers in their heated Pacific Division battle with the Portland Trail Blazers, scored ll of his team-high 23 points in the fourth quarter to help Los Angeles end a two-game losing string.
In other NBA action, Boston beat Washington 113-104, New Jersey stopped Atlanta 91-88, Indiana dumped Chicago 102-89, Detroit whacked Phoenix 128-114, Dallas tipped Seattle 105-102, San Diego nipped Kansas City 122-121, and Utah downed Houston 116-111.
Johnson was activated late last week by the Lakers, but was not expected to play until later in the week. He came off the bench to score IO first-half points before really heating up in the final period.
“I’m tired of watching," said the happy Johnson. “I came here (to the Coliseum) to work out earlier in the day and I felt ready. So I had our trainer call back to the doctor (in Los Angeles) and get his okay."
Laker coach Pat Riley was as relieved by Johnson’s return as he was happy.
“Magic makes a world of difference out there,” Riley enthused. “He’s going to create a lot of things out there for us. And, tonight, that's what he did. That’s what we’ve been missing.
“When the other teams are making their run, he
takes charge and really makes things happen."
Geveland, which lost for the ninth time in IO games, never seriously threatened after trailing 67-51 at the half. Los Angeles built a 106-88 lead with 2:15 remaining and the Cavs scored the last ll points to make it appear closer than it really was.
Lonnie Shelton had a game-high 24 points for the Cavaliers, while Jamaal Wilkes and Mike McGee each chipped in with 18 for the Lakers.Celtics 113 Bullets 104
In Boston, Larry Bird led the Celtics to a 23-point lead then held off a Washington comeback.
Bird, held to two points in the first period and three in the final quarter, topped Boston with 23 points. The Celtics avenged a 100-93 1ms at home to Washington Dec. 16 while posting their third straight victory, seventh in the last eight games and 17th in the last 20.Nets 91 Hawks 88
Reserve guard Darwin Cook scored IO points in the fourth quarter as the Nets overcame the Hawks in Atlanta.
Cook, who had 17 points, hit three straight field goals to give New Jersey a 79-78 lead with 5:32 remaining. Another Cook jumper put the Nets on top for good at 84-82 with 3:04 left.Pacers 102 Bulls 89
Clark Kellogg, leading a third-quarter Indiana rally, and Herb Williams, taking charge in the final
period, combined for 44 points for the host Pacers.
Kellogg, who contributed 12 rebounds and four steals, had eight of his 20 points in the third quarter as Indiana overcame a four-point halftime deficit. Then Williams scored 14 of his 24 points in the fourth quarter as the Pacers, winners of four of their last five, pulled away.Pistons 128 Suns 114
At Pontiac, Mich., Kelly Tripucka and John Long each scored 28 points and Tripucka made two key steals in the final two minutes to spark the Pistons.
Phoenix was led by Walter Davis with 23 points.Mavericks 105 Sonics 102
Dallas got 29 points from Mark Aguirre and held off a late Seattle rally to defeat the Supersonics and raise its home record to a glossy 14-2.
The Mavs trailed 87-86 with 8:57 to play. But they went ahead to stay by hitting four straight Kaakatf over the next 3:21, while Seattle was missing all five of its shots.Jazz 116 Rockets 111
Adrian Dantley scored 46 points and again tied the NBA’s record for free throws in a game as Utah prevailed in a game played in Las Vegas, Nev.
Dantley hit 28 of 29 free-throw attempts, including nine-of-nine in the final 5:10.
Philadelphia’s Wilt Chamberlain set the NBA’s single-game foul shot record in 1982 when he hit 8 of 32 in the game in which he scored a league-record 180 points.
Montana has Redskins worried
WASHINGTON (AP) - The Washington Redskins are worried, worried about San Francisco 49er quarterback Joe Montana and the miracles he performs on the football field.
The Montana-led 49ers invade Robert F. Kennedy Stadium on Sunday for the National Conference championship game. If the Redskins win, they will become the first National Football league team to advance to back-to-back Super Bowls s Pittsburgh Steelers turned the trick in 1979 and im
Montana, who can throw from in the pocket or on the run, completed 65
percent of his passes (332 of 515) for 3,910 yards, 26 touchdowns and 12 interceptions, in leading the 49ers to a 10-6 regular-season record.
In last week’s 24-23 playoff victory over Detroit, Montana completed 18 of 31 for 201 yards and a touchdown. He also was instrumental in driving the 49ers 70 yards in the waning moments of the game for the winning touchdown.
"Montana is the man who makes the 49ers tick," said Redskin assistant head coach Richie Petitbon. "Offensively the 49ers will be the best team we have faced all year and
Montana the best quarterback.’’
“Containing Montana will be the key to our success,” said linebacker Mel Kaufman.
The Redskin front four — Todd Liebenstein, Dave Butz, Darryl Grant and Dexter Manley — are No. I in the league in defending against the rush, holding opponents to 80me.
The 49ers, who average 140 yards a game on the ground, are led by Wendell Tyler (4.9 yards a carry), Montana (4.7 yards) and Roger Craig (4.1).
A handicap for Montana will be the
absence of wide receiver Dwight Clark. The 49ers leading ballhawk with 60 receptions and eight touchdowns, Clark has been sidelined for the playoffs with a knee injury.
"With Dwight out they will probably
go to (Russ) Francis and (Mike) Wilson on possession downs,” said Petitbon.
Defensively, the 49ers must stop All-Pro John Riggins.
Riggins who seems to save his best for the playoffs, has rushed for at least IOO yards in his last five playoff games.
Flores keeps eye on form as Raiders prepare for Seattle
MANHATTAN BEACH, Calif. (AP) - Coach Tom Flores of the Los Angeles Raiders knows from firsthand experience that form doesn’t always prevail in the National Football League’s “second season.”
“The hardest thing is to get to the playoffs,” Flores said Wednesday at his weekly meeting with reporters. “Anything can happen.
“I'm well aware of what can happen to a wild card that gets hot. We did it ie world champions."
The Raiders, then playing in Oakland, made it to the playoffs as a wild card team three years ago with an 11-5 record, finishing second behind San Diego in the AFC’s Western Division.
The Raiders beat Houston in the AFC wild card game, then disposed of Cleveland and the Chargers to get to Super Bowl XV where they whipped Philadelphia 27-10.
Flores didn’t need to say that he hopes form prevails at the Los Angeles Coliseum in the AFC Championship Game.
That’s because his Raiders, the AFC West champions, are playing division rival Seattle, which entered the playoffs as a wild card team. The winner will earn a berth in Super Bowl XVIII at Tampa, Fla., on Jan. 22.
“We’re playing good football, we’re playing against a team that’s playing good football,” said Flores, whose team is favored by seven points over the Seahawks. “They’re hot, they’re on a roll.”
Seattle enters traight games and is in the playoffs for the first time ever.
The Raiders go into the game with a 13-4 record including their 38-10 whipping of Pittsburgh last Sunday in their playoff opener.
Two of the four Los Angeles losses came at the hands of the Seahawks, who won 38-36 in Seattle on Oct. 16 and 34-21 at the Coliseum two weeks later.
Coach Chuck Knox of the Seahawks, speaking by telephone from Seattle, said a third victo over the Raiders wouldn’t be an easy task.
“You don’t see it done very often,” said Knox. “History can tell you that. I don’t think that the fact that we’ve beaten them twice is going to have anything to do with what happens this Sunday.
“In the last three weeks, we’ve played our best football. By the same token, the Raiders are a better football team, all-around. We’re going to have to play our best football game of the year, not make any mistakes."

In proceedings pending before the Public Utility Commission of Texas (PUC), local exchange telephone companies are requesting authority to charge AT&T Communications of the Southwest, Inc , for use of their facilities These proposed charges are higher than AT&T Communications can pay at current Texas long distance rate levels. To position itself to be able to implement rates that are sufficient to produce revenues that will recover the costs facing the company, AT&T Communications must now tile for rate relief to be able to implement rates that reflect the costs of access that are ultimately imposed on the company
While AT&T Communications does not want to increase its Texas rates, an increase would be required to recover the increased access charges AT&T Communications will have to pay to the local exchange telephone companies under several proposals pending before the Commission These access charges at the proposed increased levels represent more than BO percent of AT&T Communications' operating expense in Texas
Accordingly, AT&T Communications, in accordance with the Public Utility Regulatory Act and the rules of the PUC, hereby gives notice of the company’s intent to implement a new schedule of rates for long distance calls within Texas The proposed rates will be effective January 28, 1984 unless otherwise determined by the Commission All customers and classes of customers would be affected by AT&T Communications’ proposed rates
It higher access charges are ordered, AT&T Communications has no recourse but to pay these charges and recover the costs from its customers as a cost of providing long distance service within Texas AT&T Communications has filed rates which would mean a maximum overall increase in adjusted test period revenues of $301 4 million, or 27.85 percent This amount would help recover cost increases due to the proposed level of access charges now pending before the PUC A complete copy of all tariffs and rate schedules is on file with the Texas Public Utility Commission at Austin, Texas, and with every municipality in Texas
Persons who wish to intervene or otherwise participate in these proceedings should notify the Commission as soon as possible A request to intervene or participate or for further information should be mailed to the Public Utility Commission of Texas, 7800 Shoal Creek Boulevard, Suite 400N, Austin, Texas 78757.
