All three agreed they beat par on a tough golf course. And that par probably wouldn't be good enough to win the $40,000 top money in the $200,000 event. The trio had a one-stroke lead on eight players—Gary Sanders, Gary Groh, Al Geiberger, Tom Welskopf, Lanny Wadkins, Eddie Pearcc Rik Massengale Broxson Leads Whitfield Win Joey Broxson, the pitcher, belted two homers to lead Whitfield Construction to a 6-4 win over EMBA Thursday night in Eastern Junior Major League" play.

All three leaders had a chance for undisputed first place but fell back on their final three oles. McCord lost his chance on the 427-yard ninth when he flew a six iron over the green into the grand stand and then sank a 35-foot putt for a bogey. "I layed about as good as I think I can play," the 26-yearold former national collegiate champion said. Arnold Palmer finished with a 74 and said he "didn't play too badly." "I three-putted three or four times and took three from the edge once," he said.

IGS WASHINGTON (UPI)-The response of National Football League rookies and free agents is expected to be the make-or- break factor in the imminent players strike called for Monday. ..Most veterans Were reported ready to honor NFL Player Association picket lines as they did in a similar strike situation four.seasonsago. But the rookies and free agents don't become eligible for membership In the players' union until the regular season begins and can report If they wish to pre-season training camps beginning next week throughout July. Should enough of them report, the NFL clubs could field teamu to play their preseason schedules although without any established stars in the line-up. However, a boycott by a substantial segment of the draftees and other newcomers could virtually cancel the exhibition games, costing the owners not only revenues from the gate but from television and radio rights as well. Bill Curry, president of the NFLPA, said after negotiations with the owners broke off Wednesday: "If we get the cooperation of the rookies, I think It will shorten the strike. We realize that some feel they need an extra chance to make the team, but these people are going to have to work with the veterns over the years and it's not helpful to establish rifts or Who's Playing JUNIOR MAJOR LEAGUE Rhett Borland League: Elks Club vs. West Side Men's Club. 6 p.m.; Bay National Bank vs. Petticoat Junction, 8 p.m. PRICES GOOD THUR JULY 3 5 DAY SALE SHOP Mb SAVE REYNOLDS Radial ~»L73 9?

"But as they acquaint themselves with the Issues, they'll see that what we're working for will mean more to them than to the older players." The Houston Oiler center also commented that the rookies are In danger of being exploited "because they'll be playing In games without pay and they aren't covered by a collective bargaining contract.
