Sid Gillman would be squinting into the California sun, watching the sweat of a winter's relaxation dripping from the employes Of the San Dieg* Chargers. Sid Gillman is the coach of the Chargers. He also is the general manager. It is, be maintains, the only way to run a successful football team. His argument Is convincing, so convincing that you somehow think of Sid Gillman — hands- on-hips, eyes darting quickly around the field — standing in droplets of sweat rolling Off the broiling sun, counting the droplets of sweat rolling off each man. "Well," he asks, "do you think it's better to bring in an outsider who knows nothing except the business aspects of the game when I'm right here, watching every move? "Look at your successful pro football operations — Vinee agents. . , * * * There are some in pro football who believe the actions of Ladd and Faiion helped speed the merger of the National and American Leagues. Ladd is with the Houston Oil- ers and there:is talk that Faison may rejoin the Chargers with a raise now that the price war over rookies has been ended. •Y«s," Gillman said. 'I think the merger will benefit the Older players. It's going to benefit everyone - players. 1 coaches, owners and fans. "From now on, everyone will be paid commensurate to their value. This should make everyone happy and produce better football. In the last few years the only thing anyone worried about was money. I knew It both as a coach and a general manager."' » * * Ladd and Falson understood the situation even better than Gillman. They simply felt they * * * "I feel we'll be a better football team without Ernie Ladd, although I'm not saying he didn't contribute to our success over the years.

Olson the former middleweight champion, won a split decision Monday night over the Italian from Pisa in a 10-round bout at the Civic Auditorium. There were no knockdowns in the match, but Del Papa staggered Olson in the fourth round with a right uppercut to the chin. "I got careless in the fourth but I wasn't hurt," Olson said I top afterward. "And I was more 1 the careful from then on." The judges voted for Olson, Johnny Lotsey calling it 6-S and Vern Bybee 5-2. Referee Jack Downey saw it 6-4 for Del Papa his first fight in tha United as the general manager. It's a lot easier. You know everything that's going on. You know a player's value that much better." Ernie Ladd did not agree with Gillman's t h i n k i n g. Nor did Earl Faison. The two defensive linemen (and American League All-Stars were so dissatisfied with Gillman's analysis of their worth that they both played out their options, making them free more blttfir and more public, causing Gillman and the Chargers much embarrassment. "Look," Gillman said. "You Win first. That takes care of making these guys happy. The only way I'll know if I'm right or wrong about Ladd will be at the end of the year when I look at the standings.

But not Clark Graebner ol Beechwood, Ohio, who scored convincing 6-3, 6-1 victory over Australia's Gary Hockey in the first round. The fifth-seeded Graebner tt trying to erase the temperamental label. "It's not really being temperamental anyway," said the former Big Ten champion out of Northwestern. "It is temperamental only to the extent that you get mad at yourself when you miss the shots you feel you should make. ' * . * * "Anyway, I'm trying hard not to get mad at myself. You shouldn't get mad, or so I'm told by everybody. SO I'm trying hard." Graebner had the highest seeding of any player to per form Monday.

Also making their first appearance in the tournament will be second-seeded Cliff Richey, who conquered Ralston in the Western Open; third-seeded Charles Parassell, and fourth, seeded Martin Riessen.

"They're the slowest clay courts in the world," Fishbach, 18, yelled at himself as Smith's service skipped under his rack* et, "and you can't get a serve." By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS U.S. officials warned today that the Soviet Union might be jarred from the 1968 Olympic Games in Mexico City because of its "shocking and incredible" icUon In pulling out of its dual track meet with the United States. The Soviet cancellation of its participation in the meet, scheduled for July 23-24 in Los An- jeles, came without warning Monday from Moscow. Tass, the official Soviet'news agency, reported the cancellation was in srotest of American participation in the Viet Nam war. Col.

Hull told me," Davis said, "that he could not believe the Soviet sports people would jeopardize their standing with the International Amateur Athletic Federation by failing to complete their contract to compete in Los Angeles." Avery Brundage, president of the International Olympic Committee, was not immediately available for comment in Chicago. The IOC and the IAAF have worked together in the past. "This news is shocking and incredible," Clifford H. Buck, president of the AA0, said in Denver, Colo. "We are particularly distressed because this puts the entire amateur sports exchange with the Soviet Union in jeopardy." Tass said the U.S.-Russian basketball series of games, scheduled to start in Moscow July 25, also had been canceled, but that the swimming competition between the United States and the Soviets, scheduled for Moscow Saturday and Sunday, was not'affected because three other nations were entered.

"I'll make the prediction for Emile," said trainer and co- manager Gil Clancy Monday night. "He's going to knock out Archer in an early round. * * * "Emile hits harder, although Archer is heavier. If it goes the distance Emile still will win. Remember Emile has gone the 15-round route 10 times and he's always .finished real strong. Archer never has gone the 15 and he'll find it a long haul—if he lasts that long, which I don't think he will." This will be the 13th title fight for file 28-year-old Griffith.
