READING PHILS HERE Washed It may be a lost weekend for thousands of area golfers. The storm has forced many courses to close. Golfers would be wise to check their courses by telephone before setting out. Golf is one of many sports that have been disrujted by the weather. The qualifying tests for the July 2 Pocono 500 auto race near Wilkes -Barre, scheduled for today and Sun day, have been postponed until Thursday and Friday. Although the track is usable, race officials decided not to put on the trials because the large crowd expected would tax storm-affected roads and the State Police. , THE SCHUYLKILL Navy's match races, scheduled today, were called off because the river was flooding in Fair- mount Park. But Riverton (N.J.) Yacht Club plans to go on with its two-day Governor's Cup sailboat regatta today and Sunday on the Delaware River. The storm is moving minor-league baseball to Philadelphia. The Phillies' Reading farm team will leave its ball park and play an Eastern League doubleheader with Pittsfield today in Veterans No area golf course reported major damage, although water on fairways and greens left many unplayable. WHITEMARSH VALLEY CC, scene of the recent IVB Philadelphia Classic, was closed. There still was water on the first and 18th fairways Friday evening. Officials were hoping that nine holes on higher ground would be playable dur ing the weekend if no more rain fell. A men's member-guest tournament at Whitemarsh was postponed until July 21-22. All five of the city's municipal courses were closed or open only for restricted play. Roosevelt in South Philadel-' phia, which often has flooding problems, may be out of commission for a week or so. Aronimink was in operation Friday when the Philadelphia Amateur Championship resumed after being postponed Thursday. Today is an off day in the tournament. Finals are scheduled for Sunday. OTHER COURSES closed Friday included LuLu, Squires, Cedarbrook, River-ton, Westover, Green Valley, Manufacturers, Edgmont, Continued on Page 26, Column 7 The rain didn't postpone Phila.

The 44-year-old teniis star from Las Vegas, Nev., stalked from the scene after an angry argument with the referee, Mrs. Bea Seal. It was all over disputed line calls. At one point Gonzales put his hand on the referee's shoulder and pushed her away. Gonzales was playing John Paish of Britain in tie semifinals of the London Grass Courts Championship. The American won the firtt set, 7-5, and was trailing by 2-3 in the second and 0-40 on his service when the dispute occurred. A LINESMAN on trie service had called four faults against Gonzales in the same game. The angry star flung down his racket, walked to the linesman's chair and said: "I am asking you to get off this line." . The linesman got up and went to the umpire. Mrs. Seal, who had been watching the scene from a balcony, went on court and Gonzales at first laughed and waved to her. Then they came face to face and an argument began. "I am not asking anything," Gonzales said. "I am giving you an ultimatum. Ei'her you change this linesman or I go off." 'MRS. SEAL WAGGED her finger at him and he pushed her away. ' "Don't come too cbse or I might lose my temper," Gonzales said. . More words were exchanged nd Gonzales gathered up his rackets and stalked to the dressing room.

Some luck is required, too. That luck all bad surfaces only occasionally, usually when the Phillies are in danger of winning a game. It came out of hiding in the eighth inning of Friday night's baseball game here, and the result was a 2-1 Montreal victory over the bewitched Phila-delphians. Luck? Try a small, invisible gremlin hiding on the rain-slick infield of Jarry Park, tripping Terry Harmon as the Phillies' third baseman attempts to get off a throw to first base. Not enough? How about an invisible black cat lurking high inside the glove of Joe Lis, clawing loose a low line drive from the grasp of the Phillies' newly installed first baseman. IT TOOK both those bits of bedevilment to hex the Phillies this time. For seven full innings the sorcery of Jim Nash was a match for both the Expos' Mike Torrez and the spell Lady Luck has cast over the Phils. Nash, the big righthander acquired last week from the Atlanta Braves, shut out the Expos for those seven innings, dispersing five widely scattered singles and one walk. "I surprised myself with my control," he said after his first appearance in a Phillies uniform. "I hadn't pitched in 10 or 11 days, and I hadn't gone more than six innings in a month, but I was getting it close to where he (catcher John Bateman) wanted it." Torrez (83), another towering righthander, also was putting the ball where he wanted it. So the teams entered the eighth inning in a scoreless tie. BUT IN THE eighth Nash took matters into his own hands. He led off by beating out a bunt single, moved to third on a sacrifice bunt and an infield out, and scored on a single by Oscar Gamble the right fielder's fourth hit of the evening. That only served to set the stage for the Phillies' show of Midas touch in reverse. Ron Hunt led off the Expos' half of the inning with a ground single up the middle. Mike Jorgenson, up next, laid down a sacrifice bunt toward third base. Harmon raced in, took his eye off the ball for an instant to see if he had a chance to get the lead runner at second base and overran the ball. He retrieved it, then fell down. From a sitting awkward position, he attempted to throw out Jorgenson at first base. But the throw went wild, and Hunt wound up on Continued on Page 24, Column 2 BASEBALL 2:15 P. M.

Halftime was much better. Billed as the "Miracle Mile Relay," the four best high school mile relay teams in the area were drawn together for a nalftime performance. Its gate appeal was questionable (only approximately 5,000 braved the cold rainy evening) but Bartram won it in 4:16.4 on a strong anchor leg performance by Wayne Matthews, who ran his fastest quarter ever, a 0:48.1. THE TIME was the second fastest of the year but considering the wet track and cold conditions it was quite a performance. Vic McKinley Rockets Deal Hayes for Marin; Court Sends Barry to Warriors From Our Wire Services Three of professional basketball's greatest players headed for new surroundings Friday. In slam-bang fashion, a federal judge ordered Rick Barry back to the Golden State Warriors, then the Houston Rockets swapped Elvin Hayes to the Baltimore Bullets for Jack Marin. First, the swap: HAYES APPARENTLY became expendable when Houston acquired 6-11 Otto Moore from the Phoenix Suns last spring. In sending Hayes to the Bullets, however, the Rockets gave up on a great talent who has been criticized for not being a team player. He led the National Basketball Association in scoring with a 28.4 average in his rookie season (1968) and went on to be come one of the game's top scorers and most durable performers as evidenced by his 27.4 career average and streak of 328 games without injury. Besides Marin, who averaged 22.3 points last season and 18.7 for his six years with the Bullets, Houston will receive "future considerations" from Baltimore. That could mean draft choices, players or cash. BARRY, MEANWHILE, was ordered by District Judge Alfonso Zirpoli of San Francisco to honor a five-year, $1 million contract signed with the Warriors in 1969. Barry," who has performed with the Oakland Oaks, Virginia Squires and New York Nets of the American Basketball Association since leaving the Warriors in 1967, has fought a return to San Francisco. turned his fastest quarter (0:48.9), did i4 with a broken nose, and gave the Braves the lead in the third leg. Wissa-hickon finished second in the race with West Philadelphia third and Coatesville last. Tony Bullock and Everett Frey ran the first two legs for Bartram. In the Uo quarters of football preceding that, nothing nearly as exciting happened. There we;e three fumbles and the City blew a good scoring chance. The teams played on even terms in the first half but the Suburban defense held the City to one first down in the second half. "We were really going strong defensively," said Spafford. "I was able to gamble a little more offensively because of the defense." THE VICTORY gives the Suburban team a 3-1 edge in the series. "Our offense was hampered a little by the weather," Spafford said. "But those City kids were tough. Their defense hampered us quite a bit, too." Central's Kenny Anderson was the game's leading rusher with 41 yards and Mark Falzone of Plymouth-Whitemarsh led the Suburban rushers with 35 yards. The City team had a good scoring opportunity in the first period when it recovered a fumble on the Suburban 34. Bill Zwaan of Archbishop Carroll directed his team down to the three, but on fourth down, a pass intended for Egan's Gerry Gallagher was incomplete and Suburban took over on downs. "I THINK the fumbles were just a result of nervousness," said Spafford who coaches at Interboro. "Also, this was the first time we really hit." You Continued on Page 24, Column 1
