Buchholz Pulls Thigh Muscle; Netters Win By WILL ORIMSLRY Associated Pre§i Sport* Writer MELBOU!J,Na (AP) - Earl Bucholz, tti« latest u. s. Davis Cup hope, suffered a palled thigh muscle today. Fears immediately arose that his play might fall off and endanger any chance the U.S. might have of regaining the Davis Cup. The mishap to the 18-year-old lad from St. Louis, whose play has btan sensational so far in Australia, happened In the second set of his third round match against Alan Lane in' the Victorian State Tennis Championships. Although he was hobbling in the late staged of the match Buchholz still was good for Lane 6-1, 6-1, 0-4 as all four Americans in the tourney advanced. Barry MacKay of Dayton, Ohio, seemed headed for a surprise defeat when he lost the first set to Wayne.Reid, but the Ohloan swept the next three sets to win 6-8, 6-3, 0-3, 6-0. Penwian Alex Olmedo of Southern California beat Doug Reid 12-10, 6-3, 6-4 while Chris Crawford, Piedmont, Calif., had to lio five sets to down Brian Tobin 4-fi, 6-1, 6-2, 3-6, 6-3. The extent of the injury to Such- liolz was not immediately known, but his play in the doubles later sfemed affected. He and Crawford were beaten by Paul Hearnden nnd Graeme Stewart 3-6, 8-6, 6-3 r.-4. Top-seeded Ashley Cooper beat Fred Stolle 6-2, 6-3, 7-5 and now will play Crawford in the quarterfinals. MacKay and Olmedo won their second round doubles match by beating Adrian Quist and Trevor Fancutt 3-6, 6-1, 3-fi, 7-5, 6-2. 2 Candidates for Iowa State Post AMES Iff) - Two candidates for the job of athletic director at Iowa State will be interviewed by the Athletic Council Sunday and Monday.

Not even Coach Ray Eliot of Illinois knew until two days ago that a medical specialist once told Easterbrook's parents their son wouldn't live past the age of 15.

The story of Easterbrook's ailment — an intestinal disorder — has been a well-kept secret. "We just wanted to forget the past and all its troubles," Easterbrook's father Jini remarked. "It was when Johnny was about 3 or 4 that this organic ailment came to light.

A course o! exercises was decreed for Johnny and as it turned out it was the start of an athletic career. Johnny started doing setting-up exercises and riding his bike as much as possible. H« grew up to love sports and ;opk up weight-lifting to develop himself. He was an all-state player on his high school football team in Champaign and was 39th academically in a class of 300, In fact, he entered Illinois on a 'ull academic scholarship rather than an athletic grant. Several times during the season, Eliot praised his 5-foot-8 quarterback, especially after he put on a great show in helping defeat archrival Northwestern. "The rascal was hurt, and 1 knew it," Eliot said, "but he wouldn't admit it. What can you say about guts like that." Easterbrook has weathered two serious accidents. In his junior year in high school, he fell from truck and fractured his skull. Last August he was badly burned about the face and chest in a rubbish fire. 5-DAY FORECAST Five day forecasts for period Friday through Wednesday, Minnesota: Temperatures averaging 15 degrees below the normal maximums of 22 to 29 and minimums of 5 to 14; cold throughout period; little or no precipitation: intermittent snoW flurries, mostly in northern Minnesota.

Authorities said an engine fireman prevented a higher death toll by flagging down an approaching train and then dragging several children from the tracks. The children, all 3 to 5-year- olders, were heading home from a suburban Blue Island nursery. Several children were tossed from the wrecked vehicle by the impact. Edward Fike, tranmaster for the Indiana Harbor Belt Line Railroad, a freight line, said the bus was on the tracks when his train beaded into the crossing which is guarded by flashing lights.
