Thi TIMES-REPORTER Mon.,Au0.5,1974 OOVf B-NIW PHIIAOELPHIA. OHIO Owners, players show no signs of giving in WASHINGTON (AP) - Charges by striking National Football League players and countercharges by struck owners continued Sunday. The new charge by the players came from Ed Garvey, executive director of the NFL Players Association, who claimed after a meeting Sunday that the owners had lost $4 million in revenue from this weekend's poorly attended preseason games. "We hope that the owners come to the (bargaining) table and take a look at their check book," Garvey said. "Then they'll begin to realize it's time to bargain." But the owners retorted quickly through John Thompson, executive director of the NFL Management Council, who claimed that the financial loss from the games hurt chances of a settlement. "Our ability to meet the union's financial demands is dependent on our revenues, and even though we have no reliable figures as yet, it's obvious our revenues were affected this weekend." The stance of the groups involved in the dispute does not appear to bode FromC-1... well for negotiations to end the strike, which has entered its 36th day. Talks broke down last Thursday and are scheduled to resume tomorrow, but neither side shows signs of giving in. The striking players held a five- hour meeting here and voted unanimously to retain their adam'ant stand against the owners. The meeting was held to bring the player representatives from each team up to date on the dispute. Only Dallas was not represented at the meeting. NFLPA President Bill Curry of the Houston Oilers and Garvey told newsmen it was an excellent meeting and that Steve Tannen of the New York Jets had suggested that the vote of confidence be taken. "We're confident we'll be as strong next weekend as we are today," Garvey said. "They won't be able to play any games. We just hope that they (the owners) will come to the table and we'll have an agreement." A statement from NFL Management Council spokesman Terry Bledsoe indicated the owners, too, are unified. NFL attendance poor see a pro football game in 54,374-seat RFK Stadium— watched New England beat the Redskins 21-16. But, there were a couple of good crowds, too. . The New Orleans Saints, who lost to Pittsburgh 26-7 Saturday night, attracted 45,329 fans — still about 20,000 under New Orleans' 1973 average exhibition attendance. And Oakland had 41,049 fans on hand—about 11,000 below last year's preseason sellout figure—to see the Raiders beat Dallas 27-7 Saturday night. In all, 272,127 fans showed up for 11 games, Friday night, Saturday afternoon and evening and Sunday night. A year ago, the first full weekend of NFL exhibitions—10 games—drew 521,782 fans. This first full weekend ends tonight when the Chiefs take on the Detroit Lions in Kansas City. Refunds, from a few thousand in selected cities to the 24,800 demanded in Buffalo, were provided, according to NFL policy because of the strike.

Open ivenings Won., Toes., Thurs., Fri. til 8:30 Brightwood Motors, Inc. Rt. 4, East High Ave., Ext., New Philadelphia I Young Mexican cops first in Pleasant Valley event SUTTON, Mass. (AP) - "He was awful nervous," Tom Weiskopf said. "I thought I could take him on the last three holes, but It Just wasn't meant to be. "Me did everything right and everybody else made the mistakes. He's your champion." And that's Victor Regalado, a 26- year-old Mexican, whose triumph In the Pleasant Valley Golf Classic Sunday ranks as probably the biggest upset since Orville Moody won the 1969 U.S. Open. The young man with the perpetu- ally puzzled expression took advantage of a massive collapse by the lead- ers-Wciskopf, Dave Hill and Jim Wle- chers—and won his first American tournament with a two-under-par 69 and a 278 total. That was one stroke better than Weiskopf, who put on some heat with a birdie-birdie finish for a 72-279. Dave Hill, who held a two-stroke advantage when the final round started, bogeyed his first two holes, blew to a 75 and was third at 280. RICHARD PETTY WAVES HIS TROPHY Petty chalks up win in Purolator MOUNT POCONO, Pa. (AP) - If the political parties are looking for presidential timber, maybe they should tap auto racer Richard Petty on the shoulder. Back during the 1972 election campaign, a lot of automobile bumpers in the South carried stickers and metal plates that read, "Richard Petty for President." Some also endorsed Billy Graham for vice-president. Petty, a 33-year-old stock car driver from Ran- dlemah, N.C., has become a folk hero south of the Mason-Dixon line for his exploits on the tracks—mostly winning. And Sunday, he proved to about 50,000 people north of the Mason-Dixon line that it wasn't southern folklore that made him so popular. He out-duelled four of the South's other stars in a brilliantly executed, though rain-plagued, Grand National stock car race at Pocono International Raceway to record the 161st victory of his career. Hours after the race, the $1.5 million career winner still was standing in the mud at Pocono signing autographs. "He's second only in national popularity to A.J. Foyt," one observer said. "And Foyt gets his because of his three Indianapolis wins. It's a shame Petty never ran at Indy." Foyt, meantime, passed up the Purolator 500 at Pocono to get back into the headlines himself. The famed Texas veteran, who will be 40 years old in January, went to Talladega, Ala., Saturday and set a world's closed course record of 217.315 miles an hour in an Indianapolis car. Petty's average in the Purolator was only 115.585 m.p.h., but the race was stopped by rain once for 1 hour and 22 minutes, four other times by yellow caution lights for a total of 42 laps, and finally had to be halted for good 20 miles short of the scheduled 500 miles. Even so, Petty dominated it. He led the race nine times for 152 of the 192 circuits actually completed. Buddy Baker came in second in a Ford, Gale Yarborough was third in a Chevrolet, David Pearson fourth in a Mercury and Benny Parsons fifth in a Chevrolet.

Vikings nip Bellville CADIZ — The Tuscarawas Vikings semi-pro football team scored a 15-14 victory over Bellville in a pre-season scrimmage here Saturday night. After a scoreless first half, Bruce Angus put the Vikings on the Scoreboard with a six- yard touchdown run and Mike Angelozzi kicked the extra point for a 7-0 lead. But a pair of one-yard touchdown runs by Bellville's Chauncey Oden and a two- point conversion run by Oden gave Bellville a 14-7 advantage with 14:57 left in the game.With two minutes to go, Danny Angelozzi went over from six yards out to bring the Vikings to within 14-13. Angelozzi then passed to Huck Robinson for the extra points and the slim margin of victory. The Vikings open the regular season at Loudonville Aug. 17 before opening its home schedule Aug. 24 against Dayton at Dover's Crater Stadium.
