Atlanta Rookies Face KC ! KANSAS CITY (AP) - The Atlanta Falcons will use new faces and a youth movement tonight in an effort to stop the onrushing Kansas City Chiefs, who have an unbeaten exhibition record of five games, including three against National Football League teams. .'Coach Norm Van Brocklin has named Bruce Lemmer-fnan, a second year quarterback who had played only briefly prior to last week, as the Falcons' starter against the powerful American League team. Lemmerman played brilliantly in the second half last week against the New Orleans Saints. . And Van Brocklin also will use a pair of rookies, tight end jjim Mitchell of Prairie View, and tackle Dave Hettema of New Mexico in an effort to better the Falcons' 2-2 exhibition record. Junior Coffey, who was idled last season with an injury, also will add a new look at fullback. . THE CHIEFS, .who have rolled over the NFL's Detroit, Los Angeles and St. Louis clubs as well as Cincinnati and Oakland in their own league, have used mostly a veteran starting lineup in their recent games. The only exception has been Jim Mar-salis, their No. 1 draft choice from Tennessee State at left cornerback. Ed Podolak, rookie running back from Iowa also has played well for the Chiefs. Ed Lothamer, defensive tackle, has a broken band and will be replaced by Curly Culp, a second year man who also has played well this summer. Pro Attendance Set At 42,477 Official attendance for last Saturday's Detroit-Washington football game at Tampa Stadium has been reported : to pro football commissioner Pete Rozelle as 42,477. That figure was contained in a report sent to Rozelle by Bill Marcum, game chairman for the sponsoring Tampa Jaycees. This is the total announced at the game. Paid attendance would be less, but Dave Tillack, co-chairman, said the 42,477 count is official. Jaycees now are setting up plans for ticket sales to their third and last pro offering of the season the American Football League regular season game between the Miami Dolphins and Boston Patriots at Tampa Stadium, Nov. 30. Tillack said advance sale for that game already is 12,000. Ticket prices will be the same as for the two preseason games $6, $5 and $4. An interesting discussion on the money generated by the game has been taped for showing on WTVT's Insight at 1 p.m. Sunday. It features Frank Lorenzo, chairman of the Tampa Sports Authority, and Joe Zalupski, facilities manager for the Authority.

Ron Gorton, head of American Leisure Corporation and a booster of the University of Tampa, said he had received an okay from both universities and the local television station. "C. E. Cheslea, television producer, will do the game from Akron," Gorton said yesterday. "He is a producer and has a television network. The game will be beamed back to channel 44 live." Gorton is now in the process of lining up sponsors for the telecast. "It is going to be great," he said, "but right now we need help. We have some of the sponsors but we need additional ones. "If this works out good we will try to get other away games on the air. I think it is a captivating program. Tampa has a great team and a big following on the West Coast."

The first defensive unit will go against the first offensive unit and the second string offense and defense will meet head-on in some rough play that just may decide who is going to make that first team. It is the type of separate-the-men-f r o m-the-boys football that is necessary to hone out the finished product. COACH BILL Peterson was pleased yesterday with the two practices in pads, a prelude to the action that will take place behind closed doors here today. "The boys are getting over their soreness and beginning to look like football players," Peterson said. He expects to wind up the two-a-day sessions sometime next week and begin Figure 8s To Run At Sunshine ,ST.

Former defensive back Ted Hager, whom Graves says "has found a home at split end," will start in Maliska's place. Since the rainy and overcast weather here has not been to the coaches' liking, yesterday's afternoon session was moved up to 3 p.m. The weatherman cooperated by producing 96-degree heat. GRAVES praised the first team defensive unit's work in the goal line stand drills as "one of our best efforts so far." "Our offensive line, particularly (guard) Skip Amelung and (center) Kim Helton, look some game plans for their first opponent, Wichita here Sept. 20.

"There is no problem as far as we are concerned. The business of reporting us to the Mid-American Conference is something Kautz and I know nothing about except what we have read in the newspapers." Thursday, Marshall information director Gene Morehouse, told The Tribune Kautz and Marshall president Dr. Holland H. Nelson Jr., were to meet yesterday morning to decide if they would take action through the MAC against Tampa. Bailey said Kautz told him that it had not even been con-s i d e r e d . This is a contradiction t o Morehouse's statement and also to stories that have appeared in the Huntington, W.Va., Herald Dispatch, the morning newspaper. AS TRYOUTS, the Marshall transfers would receive no scholarship aid from Tampa, according to NCAA rules. They would lose a year of eligibility, but would be eligible for a scholarship at the end of the year. "Olson is here on a trial basis," Bailey pointed out. "When the time comes, we will give him some aid. That can't happen until the year is up. We don't want any controversy." In reference to the tackle (Mikolajzcyk) who is reported STATE Gonzalez Defeated As!ie9 FOREST HILLS, N.Y. (UPI) Pancho Gonzalez of Malibu, Calif., ran out of steam in the warm, humid Forest Hills Stadium yesterday and bowed out of the U.S. Open Tennis Championships, 6-3, 10-12, 7-5, 6-0 to Tony Roche of Australia. Defending champion Arthur Ashe of Gum Spring, Va., advanced to the semifinals with an 8-6, 6-3, 6-4 victory over 34-year-old Australian pro Ken Rosewall. ASHE TOOK the first set after they had exchanged service breaks in the first two games. Ashe broke through in the 14th game at love. He broke Rosewall in the sixth game of the second set but Rosewall fought back from a 5-1 deficit in the third set before Ashe closed it out at love in the 10th game. ed better than we had expected at this point," Graves added.

But we can't give him any help." Freshman Oberg is another matter. Although he signed a letter of intent with Marshall, he is not bound by schools who do not recognize the letter of intent rule. "The letter of intent rule is set up for only a conference," Bailey said. "It is only good if everybody in the country agrees to follow it. We do not belong to the NCAA or the Mid-American Conference and there is no reason for us to follow it." MATINEE Roche Top-seeded Rod L a v e r of Australia defeated Roy Emerson 4-6, 8-6, 13-11, 6-4 and will oppose Ashe in a semifinal match today. Defending women's champion Virginia Wade of England fell to Margaret Smith Court of Australia, 7-5, 6-0 as Mrs. Court advanced to the finals with Nancy Richey of San An-gelo, Tex., a 7-5, 6-3 winner over Rosemary Casals of San Francisco. ROCHE WILL meet Earl Buchaolz of St. Louis today in the concluding quarter-final match. Pancho, apparently attempting to husband his strength, seemed content to hold service and wait for an opportunity to pounce during the first three sets. Roche's breakthrough during the first set came in the sixth game. He had fought to deuce, got the advantage on a passing shot and won the game when the ball climbed the net and flicked over Pan-cho's left shoulder. Gonzalez howled in anger at the break. Gonzalez reached his peak in the long second set. He was faced with a double break point in the 13th game and again in the 19th game, but held the Australian off each time. Roche held service for 1 0-a 1 1 and Pancho swept through at love for 11-10. Roche then doublefaulted at 30-all to give Pancho set point and the veteran immediately slammed through for the 12-10 set. In the third set, after they had traded service breaks in the second and third game, Roche got through in the 11th game. Pancho fought furiously, gaining four break points and holding off one set point before a lob was too long and gave Roche the 7-5 set. WHEN THEY returned for the fourth set, Pancho had nothing left and it was easy for Roche to avenge the defeat he had suffered at the hands of Pancho one year ago the ame problem with his knee which he hurt in the spring. PETERSON singled out defensive back John Pell of Pa-hokee for special praise yesterday. "We're expecting John to be one of our mainstays in that defense," he said, "and it looks like he's just about in form again." Running back Tom Bailey, bigger, stronger and quicker than ever, also shone in prac tices Wednesday and yesterday. The coaches called practice off early to atend the football jamboree featuring high school teams of the area.

Costeliono Mano9er ?Ml THE TAMPA TRIBUNE, Saturday, September 6, 1969 only victory Gonzalez has ever achieved over the 23-year-old Australian pro. Roche said afterwards that Pancho appeared very tired after the rest period and once into the fourth set, "I knew I had him. The court was very happy and of no help to Pancho." Mrs. Court had little difficulty with Miss Wade after the 10th game of the first set. Virginia had three set points, leading at love-40 when Mar- Zarlev M ichigan WALLED LAKE, Mich. m Kermit Zarley, a veteran of six years on the pro golf tour who finished first just once, fired a second-round 68 and pulled into the lead yesterday among the mid-day finishers in the $100,000 Michigan Golf Classic. Zarley, a native of Seattle, also shot a 68 Thursday to give him a 136 total for the two rounds over the 6,708-yard, par 70 Shenandoah Golf and Country club course in this Detroit suburb. BOB MENNE and Grier Jones, the opening-round leaders who had 65s Thursday, were among golfers teeing off later in the day. Among the early finishers was Jerry McGee of Lake Worth, Fla., who came in with a .59 to go with his opening 68 for 137. Five golfers were at 138. They were Joel Gold-strand, Dick Mayer, Tom Shaw, Bob Stanton and Bill Lively. The field of 148 was to be cut after yesterday's round to the low 70 and ties. Many of the top tour golfers have bypassed the Michigan Classic, first Professional Golfers Association tour event in the Detroit area in five years.

A prize of a new auto would have been waiting for him if Schroeder, who had a 74 Thursday, had gotten his hole-in-one on the eighth hole. Zarley, who was 21st in money winnings last year, is currently 95th, but thinks he's coming out of his slump. "I've just been in a slump for a little while," he said, pausing and then adding: "Well, a long time. But I feel like I'm coming out of it."
