LITTLE SPORT by Rouson CORPUS CHRISTI TIMES, Tues., Aug. 17, -1971 7-B Tuttle PBA Winner by Jordan May Be Out OnePin Cup Bid Mystifies Held man FRANC01SE DURR . . . upset winner (AP Wirepholo) CLEVELAND, Ohio Iff) -Even though Julie Heldman helped the United States win the Wightman'Cup the past two years, she still can't understand why she's on the team instead of three other prominent female'tennis stars -- Billie Jean King, Rosemary Casals and Nancy Richey Gunter. Miss Heldman said Monday that she could only guess that it's because the three have more gripes with the United States Lawn Tennis Association than she does. She said that, she would like for one tennis organization to step forward that would include all classes of female tennis players -- pro, amateur, foreign and domestic -so that the confusion that led the three to decline to participate can end. Practice sessions for the 43rd Wightman Cup competition between the United States and Great Britain begin today at Harold T. Clark Stadium in suburban Cleveland Heights.

Rich Carrubba, Hayward, Calif., 7- Two Trips to First Complied Frorn Th« Associated Prtjj Le« Roy Jordan, veteran linebacker of the Dallas Cowboys, is a doubtful starter for Friday night's e x h i b i t i o n game with the Cleveland Browns. X-rays revealed Monday that an injury suffered by Jordan in Saturday night's 3631 victory over New Orleans was a fractured non-weight bearing bone just below the knee. A Cowboys spokesman said the injury would not sideline Jordan more than a week, if at all. Better news came on Roger Staubach. Staubach's b r u i s e d ribs showed no breaks. He r worked 4 out. Monday and will be ready Friday night. . . Los Aneeles Rams Coach Tommy Prothro released his former UCLA star quarterback Dennis Dummit, on waivers Monday, a spokesman for the National Football League' team said. Dummit. who holds 15 team records at UCLA, had been sfgned as a free agent. Dummit saw ac" tion for the first time as a Ram in Friday's exhibition game with the Cleveland Browns. He completed one out of seven passes and ran for a touchdown. . . The Houston Oilers "spent today at their training camp in Kerrville getting ready for their Saturday night exhibition game in the Astrodome with the Philadelphia Eagles. Defensive tackle Ron Billingsley suffered a se-. vere Charley horse in the loss to St. Louis last week. He did not work out Monday. The Cleveland Indians shortly will sign a long lease (20 years) to play 30 games annually in the New Orleans Su- perdome starting in 1974, the Cleveland Plain Dealer said in a story for its Tuesday editions, the New Orleans Associated Press bureau reported the same fact last week. Plain Dealer Sports Editor Hal Lebovitz said that although no Indians offical would confirm the agreement, there were s t r o n g indications that the pact would soon be completed and then be subject to American League approval . . . The New Olreans Saints traded quarterback Jim Ward to the Detroit Lions for linebacker Carl Cunningham Monday. Cunningham, a fourth- round draft choice by Denver in 1967, started for three seasons at Denver before going to CINCINNATI UP) -- Cincinnati outfielder George Foster- was so excited about his game-winning single in the ninth inning that he had trouble finding first base. Foster, acquired earlier this year from the San. Francisco Giants, stroked the single off ace St. Louis reliever Frank Linzy and the hit s.cored Tony Perez from second base for a 6-5 Reds victory. "I was so interested in watching the play after I hit the ball that I couldn't remember if I had touched first," said a jubilant Foster. "So I went back to make sure I did." The single gave the Reds · Vi their fifth victory of the sea- f son against the surging Cardi- nals, who lost one game on Eastern Division leading Pittsburgh which drubbed Houston. The hit also completed a comeback in the game that St. Louis starter Steve Carlton had well under control until the eighth inning when Cincinnati erupted for four runs. Perez walked with one out in the ninth and moved to second as John. Bench singled. Not known for his speed, Perez built up momentum as lie rounded third, and executed an excellent slide into home just ahead of outfielder Lou Brock's throw. "I thought Tony's slide was really good," said Cincinnati Manager Sparky Anderson. "I had looked for the worst on the play because that liner gout out there awfully fast to Brock." But Clay Carroll, who had only allowed two runs since the first week in July, yielded a two-out, two-run homer to Joe Hague in tiie ninth to knot the scone 5-5 after the Reds had mounted "a 5-3 margin in the eighth. "Even when we had two out in the ninth, I hadn't given up because in this game you have to get 27 outs and time can't save you," said St. Louis Manager Red S c h o e n d i e n s t . "That's what makes the game great. Besides, Hague has been hitting the ball like hell and he really met that one in the ninth."
