»I-D»I IM. TilM Ml WI'HIMLD, Ttmnttv, Oddbif i, 1W Exodus continues as more strikers cross picket lines •y DAVID GINSBURG TYSONS CORNER, Va. (AP) - Ai Gene Upshaw and Jack Donlan continued to work to end the NFL strike, 37 more players crossed picket lines, including San Fran* Cisco quarterback Joe Montana and 11 of his teammates. Upshaw, the executive director of the NFL Players Association, and Donlan, his management counterpart, were to continue negotiations today in the latest round of talks designed to end the 17-day-old walkout. The two have been meeting at an undisclosed site in the Washington area since Tuesday. There were conflicting reports on the amount of progress made Wednesday, but both sides said that no immediate settlement was in sight. This weekend's games will once again feature teams with a majority of replacement players and a smattering of defectors. The latest flood of regulars to cross picket lines came Wednesday as players tried to meet the deadline imposed by owners to pick up this week's paychecks and qualify to play in this weekend's games. The latest defections brought to 129 the number of players who have crossed over since the strike began Sept. 22. The biggest blow to the union came in Redwood City, Calif., where 12 49ers crossed. Among those accompanying Montana were wide receiver Dwight Clark, running backs Roger Craig and Joe Cribbs and cornerback Eric Wright. San Francisco Coach Bill Walsh, who in the interest of team unity had last week persuaded many of the players not to return, said Wednesday he would not repeat the procedure. "I wouldn't want to try it again," Walsh said. "We don't really have any other choice. If they want to come back, our doors have to be open." . Only seven of the league's 28 teams have no defectors: the New York Giants, Washington Redskins, Philadelphia Eagles, San Diego Chargers, Seattle Seahawks, Tampa Bay Bucs and Kansas City Chiefs. Meanwhile, both sides gave different versions of the latest round of negotiations. Management Council spokesman John Jones said the sides did not discuss the major bargaining points, instead focusing on such topics as injury and non-injury grievance procedures, discipline by the commissioner, injury protection and safety and welfare. But Doug Allen, the NFLPA's assistant executive director, said Upshaw was "encouraged, and progress has been made." Allen said the sides "touched on" such important topics as guaranteed contracts and protection for player representatives. While Donlan and Upshaw were meeting, several of the striking players either crossed picket lines or came close to doing so. The 0-3 Giants had three players - NFL MVP Lawrence Taylor, Pro Bowl defensive end Leonard Marshall and third-string quarterback Jeff Hostetler report to Giants Stadium, then leave after meeting with team officials. General Manager George Young denied they were asked to leave. "Our policy is that each man has to answer with his own conscience," Young said.

Martin crossed striking NFL player picket lines Wednesday for practice, wishing that his late hit on Chicago quarterback Jim McMahon last season would be forgotten. But Seale, named the AFC's defensive player of the week, wants his performance last week embedded in the minds of Oilers coaches as' he hopes to earn a roster spot when the NFL players' strike ends. Martin, who formerly played at Green Bay, was suspended for two games last season by Commissioner Pete Rozelle after he body-slammed McMahon in a game at Chicago Nov. 23, sending McMahon to surgery. The Packers waived Martin this season following a barroom incident, and the Oilers picked him up last week. "I hate to keep putting the spark on the fire," Martin said. "I just wish it would die down and everybody forget about it. "But it's just one of those situations where McMahon was McMahon and it's going to be something to live down," he added. "McMahon is a great quarterback and he's out right now because of me." Martin, 6-4, 280, replays his late hit in his mind and sees it on video when his name is in the news. "I just wish it hid never hap* pened, but It did," he said. "I can live it down but it will always come back up." Oilers Coach Jerry Glanville said he told Martin what would be expected of him as an Oiler. "We talked about all those problems and we won't tolerate anything like that here," Clan- ville said. "We only want to play within the framework of the rules. If we don't, there's going to be a divorce." Glanville said Martin could play Sunday when the Oilers play at Cleveland. "1 found him to be a very pleasant perion and after watching him in practice today, he's the type of guy you like to have around," Glanville said. "I told him the only exception would be that if t was in a bar and there was a brawl, I expected him to be on my side." Jesse Baker, a nine-year veteran who was waived by the Oilers in training camp, also crossed the picket lines Wednes- day and worked out. Nose guard Doug Smith remained the only member of the Oilers' 45-man roster to have crossed the picket lines. In other moves, the Oilers waived quarterback Paul Williams of Tarleton State and linebacker Scott Stoughton of Sam Houston State and placed defensive end Kenny Neil on the reserve Injured list. The Oilers also signed safety Kurt Kafentzis of Hawaii. Frosh White defeats Highlands Del Rio High School's Freshman White Football team defeated the Highland park Freshman team by a score of 19-8 Saturday. The Rams scored first in the game when tailback Joe Hernandez ran the ball into the Highland end zone, on a 12 yard jaunt. Quarterback J.M. Simmonds added the two point conversion, running the ball around the right side. The Freshman White defense got on the board late in the second quarter. With only four seconds remaining in the first half of play, cornerback Juan Hernandez intercepted the ball, returning it 53 yards for another Del Rio touchdown. Simmonds then found fullback Josue Venegas in the end zone, completing the pass for another two- point conversion. Dei Rio got on the board again in the fourth quarter with a 38 yard field goal off the foot of Pedro Vidales, bringing the score to 19-0.
