After 36 holes of play In the 72-hoIe Tuscarawas District Oolf Assn. tournament, Tarulli Is picking up right where he left off when he won the event a year ago by firing a one-under-par 143 over River Greens and Sugarcreek courses Saturday and Sunday. The final two rounds come this weekend at Hickory Plats on Saturday and Green Valley on Sunday. While Tarulli is leading the AA Flight golfers, it's Jim Hawk with a four-stroke cushion in the A Flight at 151 and Jim Monte leading the B Flight with 164. TARULLI IS right on pace with last year's halfway point but the only difference is the caliber of golf courses scheduled this weekend may be somewhat tougher. Hickory Flats is considered one of the longest courses in the area while Green Valley forces straight, accurate shots and topnotch putting on the sometimes unpredictable greens. It was last year that Green Valley took such a heavy toll of many golfers in the annual event — including Tarulli who mildly blew to a 76 in 1973. THERE WON'T be any room for mistakes this year because there's a logjam of golfers breathing down Tarulli's back in the A A Flight. Harold Shade, another top drawer golfer, is only back of Tarulli by one swing with a 144. Shade shot a 71-73 over the weekend while Tarulli had 70, two under par at River Green and 73 on Sugarcreek. Two strokes back of Tarulli is Dick Tristano with 145 while Dave Young had 146 and Ed Hosteller and Dave Miller knotted at 148. HAWK CAN rest a little easier with his four-stroke lead in the A Flight. He had a 74 round at River Greens and 77 at Sugarcreek while second-place Bob Wolfe had 77 and 79, respectively for a 156 as did Ken Lawhun of Sugarcreek. Lawhun was in fine contention after shooting a 75 at River Green but, surprisingly enough on his home course, exploded to an 81. IN B FLIGHT, Jim Monte shot 81 at River Greens and 83 at Sugarcreek for 164 while Jim Trotter is the only one close to Monte with a 165 — firing 80 and 85 over the weekend. The rest of the B Flight golfers are down the list at 170 — Bob Amos, Chink Harmon and MikeStroup.

John Lowenstein singled to right fielder Dave May who made a wide throw to the plate. Attendance poor at NFL contests By BRUCE LOWITT AP Sports Writer The fan has spoken. Silent until now as the warring parties in the National Football League traded charges, the fan struck the loudest blow yet this weekend. His message was clear: he's not very interested in watching rookies and free agents play football. The striking NFL Players Association, which had knocked out the College All-Star Game, hoped to do the same thing to the league's exhibition season. The union didn't pull it off, but the strike—which forced most clubs to field teams virtually devoid of name veterans—did chop average attendance figures at least in half during the first full weekend of preseason play. On Sunday, the Players Association's executive committee met for five hours in • Washington, D.C., and voted to continue their adamant stand against the owners in the 36-day-old strike. Bargaining which broke down Thursday is scheduled to resume Tuesday. There was nothing approximating a sellout last weekend and, in some cases, the crowds were downright meager. In 71,000-seat Illinois Memorial Stadium in Champaign, 111., 12,877 fans showed up as St. Louis beat Chicago 10-7 Saturday. Officials estimated the game would have drawn 40,000 fans without a strike. The Oilers beat the New York Giants Saturday night before 15,501 fans, one-third of what they drew a year ago. And in Washington Friday night, 16,403 spectators—the fewest ever to SeeNFL...C-2 Rain halts feature at Midvale Speedway MIDVALE — Race fans at Midvale Speedway here went home Saturday night a little disturbed. They didn't get to see the feature races — particularly the super late model chase which was shaping itself into an exciting test of man and machine. But they'll get more than their money's worth this Saturday because the speedway will begin the evening's entertainment with those two rained out features before presenting its regular program. The supers had started their 30-lap feature when Joe Nign of Leesville, Ron Sence of Clinton and Brad Malcuit of Dover got tangled up and all three slid into the wall in number two turn. At the time, they were running three abreast, as were other cars farther back in the pack, and it looked like the beginning of something good. The top 12 qualifiers were positioned in reverse order in front of the 20-car field and it was anybody's race. But just a couple of laps into the contest the mishap occurred. As the wreck was cleared and the field closed up for the restart, the weatherman turned on the tap and the evening's proceedings were braked to a halt. This Saturday, the super lute models and the hobby stocks will run those rained out features from the beginning with everybody in their original starting positions. Time trials for the regular show begin at 6 p.m. with the first race at 8. The night will be climaxed with another feature race in each division. The preliminary races that were run Saturday go down in the books. Bob Sibila of Massillon won the late model dash and Gary Miday and Tuny Dianu of Canton were the heat winners. Kent Stouffer of Amherst claimed the pursuit flag. In the hobby stock class it was Paul Mutchler of Massillon winning the dash, Heat victories went to Gary Nester of St. Clairsville and Gary Coffy of Leesville. The pursuit was won by Rich Rohr of Canton. Midvale was supposed to host its first figure eight racing Saturday, but only three cars being built for that division are completed. So the track came up with an all-new, and what turned out to be, a very enjoyable race. It was called "the cat and mouse.'' What happened was this: Eight hobby stock cars were taken, starting with the slowest qualifier on up the line. They were put in single file with the slowest on the pole and the race was on. Basically, it was follow-the-leader with the pole car setting the pace and determining the route. The leader was permitted to go any direction on the oval and the figure eight and could make a turn off the oval onto the infield track, or whatever. All the others had to follow him. The race ran on a five minute time limit because it would have been impossible to score laps. When the checkered flag dropped, Emil Johnson of Uhrichsville emerged as the winner. The crowd loved it. It gave them a chance to see how the figure eight will be run, sort of, but mostly it was just a fun thing to relieve the tension of the big money competition. The cat and mouse will be run again this week and could become a part of the program, if crowd reaction has anything to do with it. Brewers slam Perry as ace hurler loses 6th By MIKE O'BRIEN AP Sports Writer MILWAUKEE (AP) - Facing Gaylord Perry is not the recommended way to break a five game losing streak, but the Milwaukee Brewers caught the brilliant righthander in the midst of an even worse slump than their own Sunday. The Brewers chased Perry with a six-run sixth inning, highlighted by a two-run double by Ken Berry and a two-run home run by Don Money, and bombed the Cleveland Indians 8-3 to salvage a doubleheader split. The Indians won the opener 4-3 as light hitting Luis Alvarado drove in two runs and Tom Buskey earned his 10th save with clutch relief pitching. Despite the nightcap victory, the last place Brewers trail first place Boston by seven games, their largest deficit of the season, in the American League East. The split cost the Indians a chance to pull to within one game of the top. The 35-year-old Perry (15-6) is 0-5 since winning here 4-2 July 3 for his 15th straight victory, one shy of the league record. In his last three starts, covering 20 2-3 innings, Perry has allowed 27 hits and 23 runs, although his earned run average still is only 2.31. "I'm disturbed with some of the hits they got and I walked too many, but I'm not going to get down on myself," Perry said. "I'll just have to come out of it. Give them credit. They came out swinging the bat." Perry held the Brewers hitless until Dave May opened the fifth inning with an infield single. After a walk, bloop singles by Darrell Porter and Berry scored two runs and tied the score 2-2. "Berry threw his bat at that pitch, but that's what happens when a pitcher gets in a slump," Perry said. "It's like a hitter hitting line drives right at someone. But I have no complaints. I feel great—physically, I feel as good as I did 10 years ago." John Briggs started the sixth inning rally with one of the six walks allowed by Perry and scored the go- ahead run on singles by May and Mike Hegan. After an intentional walk, two runs scored on Berry's blast to the right centerfield wall. Pedro Garcia singled in Berry, setting up Money's second homer of the day, Kevin Kobel (5-8) earned the victory with ninth inning help from Tom Murphy, who pitched 2 1-3 innings of hitless relief in the two games. Berry said Perry threw as well in the sixth inning as he had In the first. "He hadn't lost an inch," Berry said. "He was throwing the hell out of the ball, although it seems he's not throwing as many sliders as he did the last two years. It seemed to be mostly fast balls and fork balls." Money said he hit "a fork ball that didn't fork" for his llth homer, but added he thought Perry threw better than in his July 3 victory here. Browns veterans decide to stick with strike CLEVELAND, Ohio (AP) - Quarterback Mike Phipps, who had thoughts about going to camp, said he has reconsidered after Cleveland Browns veterans decided to continue to strike. Phipps, acting as the team spokesman, said Sunday that about 18 Browns met over the weekend and decided to "go all the way with the association." "I've changed my position about going to camp," Phipps said. "The team felt it was important for some of the more important players not to go to camp." Phipps added that the striking veterans are members of the Browns, but they are also members of the striking NFL Players Association. "We're at a critical point in the negotiations," Phipps said. "The management is testing the strength of the union. We considered the most important thing, as a player, is that the union must survive," he added. Phipps said that other Browns veterans who had thought about going to camp also have changed their minds. "Some players decided to hold out at least a week or so more. But, if it's necessary to hold out longer, we will," he said. Strike negotiations are to resume Tuesday in Washington, D.C. IGA clinches Class A title on sweep over Nc'town IGA swept a doubleheader from Newcomerstown Sunday to clinch the regular season title in the Tuscarawas Savings & Loan Class A Baseball League. The league champs posted 12-3 and 3-0 victories to take a commanding 3Vz game lead over idle Bonvechio's with just one game remaining. In other league action Sunday, Sugarcreek tripped Claymont R & M Trucking 10-5 in the first game while R & M bounced back for an 8-2 verdict in the nightcap. Doubleheaders between New Philadelphia Moose and Bonvechio's and Scio Two Pines and Gnadenhutten were postponed because of wet grounds. IGA pounded out 17 base hits in the opener to back Dan Zuchegno's five-hit pitching. Rich Morris blasted a home run, double and single and John Patacca had a three-run homer and a single to lead the winner's attack. Les Guedel added two singles and a double while Phil Tidrick, Tom Hawkins, Dave Korns and Dave Yaggi all .collected a double and single. For Newcomerstown, Dave Maloy had a single and double. Gary Compton was the losing pitcher. THE SECOND game saw Ralph Javens hurl a four-hit shutout, striking out three and walking one. Morris hit another home run, Patacca had a triple and Guedel added a double to give Javens more than enough support. Two of Newcomerstown's hits were singles by Terry McCrone. Compton again was charged with the defeat. IGA was also awarded a forfeit victory over Newcomerstown for a postponed game caused by a conflict in the use of the Newcomerstown field. Randy Gonter fanned 11 and walked seven in pitching Sugarcreek's first game victory over R & M. Greg Brown stroked three singles, Randy Moomaw had a home run and a single and Pat Antonelli and Gonter each hit a double for the winners. One of R & M's four hits was a double by Dave Smith. Mark Mahaffey was the starting and losing pitcher. Sugarcreek broke the game open with six runs in the second inning. R & M BOUNCED back in the second contest as Paul Stull pitched a six-hitter, •striking out five and issuing just one base on balls. Jerry Hoover had two doubles and a single to lead the R & M hitters while Larry Gasser added a triple. Ron Burkey had Sugarcreek's only extra-base knock with a double. Brad Hummel was the losing pitcher, getting relief help from Larry Milligan in the fifth inning. Moose will play Bonvechio's at Wainwright Tuesday at 6 p.m. in a single game to make up one of the games postponed yesterday.
