Evonne The One To Beat' WIMBLEDON, England (AP) Billie Jean King, a Wimbledon champion of champions, has definite ideas about who is going to succeed her as the women's singles champion. She doesn't actually come out with a prediction, but Evonne Goolagong Cawley is the first name that Billie Jean mentions. "Evonne is the one to beat. I've always said that." Mrs. King won her sixth Wimbledon' singles title last year by beating Evonne, then announced she was retiring from singles play. "Chris Evert is the most totally professional," she says. "Virginia Wade thinks she can win. Martina Navratilova, I don't know. She's fourth on my list." Miss Evert, of Fort Lauderdale, Fla., the 1974 Wimbledon champion and 1973 runnerup to Mrs: King, meets Miss Navratilova, a Czechovaklan exile now based in Severely Hills, Calif., in the semifinals Wednesday. Mrs. Cawley faces v Virginia Wade of Britain. Billie Jean, who has won 19 Wimbledon titles in singles, doubles and mixed doubles, is still alive in the women's doubles that could make a 20th championship. Elizabeth Ryan of the United States won 19 Wimbledon championshps in the period from 1914 to 1934 — 12 women's doubles and 7- mixed doubles — but never the singles. Mrs. King has won ,her 19 championships in an 11 year period. She teamed with Betty Stove of Holland Tuesday to defeat Laura du Pont of Charlotte, N.C., and Wendy Turnbull of Australia, 6-3, 6-3, in the women's doubles quarter-finals. But she and Alex Mayer of Wayne, N.J., were eliminated from the mixed doubles by Bob Hewitt and Greer Stevens of South Africa, 9-7, 3-6, 6-2. The men's singles came down to the semifinals Tuesday with Roscoe Tanner of Lookout Mountain, Tenn., upsetting Jimmy Connors, of Belleville, 111., the No. 1 seed, 6-4, 6-2, 8-6. Raul Ramirez of Mexico beat Vitas Gerulaitas of New York 4-6,6-4,6-2,6-4. Hie Nastase of Romania eliminated Charles Pasarell of Santurce, Puerto Rico, 6-4,6-2,6-3. Bjorn Borg of Sweden ousted his off-court buddy Guillermo Vilas of Argentina, 6-3, 6-0, 6-2. . There are no former champions left in the men's singles and Tanner is the only surviving American. In the semifinals Thursday, Tanner pla"ys Borg and Ramirez meets Nastase. OaksContinue Sizzling Pace Marinaro Bids Vikes Adieu- Hopes He'll Run for NY Jets HEMPSTEAD,-N:Y. (AP) — It is a simple axiom of football that for a running back fo be effective, he must be allowed to run, Ed Marinaro never quite understood why toe rule didn't apply to him. "I got to the National Football League as a running back," said Marinaro, "but then, I didn't get the opportunity to run." - . Marinaro spent his first four NFL seasons in Minnesota, where the offense is spelled Chuck Foreman running and Fran Tarkenton passing. He left that routine behind Tues- day when, after playing out his option with the. Vikings last season, he signed a one-year' contract with the New York Jets. He comes to the Jets after his most productive NFL season. Given a regular starting job for the first time, he caught 54 passes for 462 yards .as Foreman's backfield partner. But he had only 101 • carries for 358 yards. That is about seven attempts per game, not nearly enough for a running back to prove anything. "To be effective, a running back has to be given the ball," AUTO RACES Super Modified SAT. MITE JULY 3 Late Model Stocks 8 p.m. JIMMY HARKNESS MEMORIAL 8 p.m. Sunday Night July 4 "Mid—Season Championship' Late Model Stock Cars Dodge City he said. "Unless you establish yourself as a runner, your position in the starting lineup is always threatened. You never have the opportunity to relax as a football player." Marinaro considers 15 carries per game the kind of diet a running back should be fed. Marinaro never had to worry about getting the ball at Cornell, where he set ,an ' NCAA rushing record by gaining 4,715 yards in 27 varsity games. "In college, I ran from the I- formation," he said. "In that, you run to an area and find what's there. In the pros, I had to adjust to the split backfield. At first, I was not disciplined enough to run to the hole. In time, though, I learned." Coach Lou Holtz, delighted with the acquistion- of^ Marinaro after losing free agent running back John Riggins to Washington earlier this month, said the Jets might try the I with Marinaro as the tailback. Marinaro is a native of New Jersey and-he said that was a major consideration in his selection of the Jets. "I have always wanted the chance to play in New York. I've got a^ lot of friends and family here and I'd like to finish my career here." DISCOUNT CENTER A I Hopes You Have Safe And Happy Bicentennial Holiday! Sure To Get Your FREE BRAKE CHECKUP!
