4 THE SUN, Tuesday, Febrnary 13, 1973 Smith sees Davis Cup returning to New York (JV-Remember those halcyon days when the Davis Cup was one of the world's premier sports events and the United States and Aus tralia met almost every Christ mas for the big silver tennis bowl that held 39 bottles of champagne? Those times are coming back, predicts Stan Smith, who sees a boom in the 73-year-old court series which lost much of its lustre in the past decade because of the pro tennis wars. "Australia will be able this fall to field a four-man squad consisting of Rod Laver, Ken Rosewall, John Newcombe and Roy Emerson," the 6-foot-4 graduate of the University of Southern California said yesterday. "If they choose to play and some already have said they will you can imagine what sort of interest will be generated in tennis throughout the world. "A team like that would have to be favored over us, but they would be no cinch to beat America's best squad." Smith didn't say so, but he Bob Rivard or Dufour top Clippe CLIPPERS, from Cl those players who have not been celebrated or praised by the press. That would include players the likes of Randy Miller, Wayne Schultz, Tony Goegan and possibly Bob McMahon or Jim Bartlett. Of course, we can't forget both goalies, Ken Lockett and Jim Shaw, who should get awards for just standing in the nets on some nights. Shaw and Lockett combined have faced a fusillade of an average of 36 shots per game, highest mark in the league. The Clippers have several rookies on the club, but none have been world beaters or shown any .potential that would really qualify them for rookie of the year honors. Tom Cassidy's 35 points leads all first year men on the Baltimore team, but that figure is far below Richmond rookie star Orest Kindrachuk, who leads the league's rookies in scoring. The Clippers will , try to make it two straight victories for the first time this season when they entertain the Roch ester Amerks on Western Elec tric Night at the Civic Center tomorrow. It's the continuation of a six eame-home stand, which con cludes with a Saturday night game against Providence and a Sunday afternoon encounter with Springfield. Clipper' general manager Terry Reardon, along with club president Jake Embry and publicity man Bob Elmer traveled to Norfolk yesterday and the annual mid-winter league meeting. Unconfirmed reports had the New York Islanders offering the Clippers a tieup next season. The Islanders will be without a farm club when Minnesota takes over New Haven next year.

Winner of Wimbledon and star of America's Davis Cup victory in Bucharest over Romania in the Davis Cup Challenge Round, the 26-year-old Californian received 97 points in the balloting, beating out Romania's colorful Hie Nas-tase, who got 91. RosewalL tsewcombe, Arthur Ashe and Rod Laver followed in that order. Sponsors interested Laver, Rosewall, Newcombe and many other top stars become eligible for the Davis Cup under the program of Lamar Hunt, Texas million aire, to phase out his World Championship Tennis contracts and concentrate more on the promotional aspects of the game. The Davis Cup thus ceases to be an amateur event. Anybody who is not a contract pro may play in it "The Davis Cup has been professional for four years," Smith said. "Almost every country pays its players bo nuses to compete, aome nave been doing it for years, but the I last, four years legitimately. I "The trend will be toward sponsors. Australia already Palmer will for Masters Palm Desert, Calif. (B Ar nold Palmer, breaking an 18-month victory drought, had this parting shot after the Bob HoDe Desert Classic: "I just hope it isn't that long before I win again." Palmer beat Jack Nicklaus and Johnny Miller by two strokes Sunday with a three- under-par 69 in the rain- drenched final round of Hope's $160,000, 90-hole marathon. "It's always a necessity to win," said the 43-year-old Pal- mer wno aamiueai ne naa feared he may never win again. "If it isn't, you're not going to win. You'll just lose., Palmer, who is taking this week off from the pro tour, says he's now gunning for the Masters and the PGA titles. "I've never won the PGA, so that's in the back ot my mind." said the winner of 61 tournaments since turning pro in 1955. "Right now I'm think ing of the Masters, although I'll play a few tournaments before that." Palmer said this isn't a new Drive needed to find ice By SEYMOUR S. SMITH Assistant Sports Editor of The Sun Don Cherry had had it with sympathy. He was up to here with inquiries concerning the condition of Rochester's Amer ican Hockey League franchise, how it would survive going as an independent in the middle of professional hockey's salary war. So Cherry spent early September visiting NHL training camps seeking out free agents. "At one point, nocnesrer s skipper, whose Amerks visit the Civic Center tomorrow, reports, "I felt I was spending most of my time driving the 90 miles from Kitchener, unt., to London, Ont. Oh, I dropped in on the Buffalo and Pittsburgh camps along the way, but the Rangers and Bruins were the clubs I wanted to get my help from. "My first stop when I left Rochester was going to be London where the Bruins were training, but as luck would have it, Prime Minister Tru- deau was starting his political campaign in the town and I couldn't get a hotel or mote room, so I got oacx in the car and drove 90 miles over to Kitchener hoping to talk with the Rangers and get some pea pie.

We keep hearing reports that the United States will have a spon sor. "So players will be agreea ble to takmg tune off for the Davis Cup because they won't have to lose money they would have made on the tour." The American team was paid a $200 per diem for the three weeks of the Davis Cup final in Bucharest last year, giving each competitor $4,200 for the period. "There is nothing unusual about that," Smith said. "I'm not sure, but Ilie Nastase and Ion Tiriac, the Romanians, must have got a big slice of the country." point and PGA Arnie Palmer, just a revived version. "I feel pretty damn young right now," he said when asked if this triumph was more rewarding than those of his earlier days. "When you're playmg as long as I have, it's pretty hard to apply yourself out there. After doing so poorly, I decided to put it together and it showed." Before his victory, worth $32,000, Palmer had won only $3,345 for 68th place on the PGA list for 1973. His best finish was 22nd at Hawaii. It was in Hawaii that he solved his putting problem with the help of fellow pro Harry Tos- cano. "I was aware that I wasn't stroking the ball as well as before and I was trying to find a way," Palmer recalled. "Harry said 'Why don't you go back to the way you putted when you were winning?' So I went back to my style of breaking my wrists." Arnie had been putting stiff- armed.1 I was at the rink at 7 o'clock. Bronco Horvath was there and he introduced me to Dennis Ball, of the Rangers, and I sat across the aisle from him all morning watching New York practice and at the same time looking over players I'd like to get for my team.

Tournament chairman Matt Swerdloff Said yesterday that while he Is still awaiting word on the availability of Memorial Stadium, Catonsville Commu nity College has offered the use of its facilities. "We took a look at their facilities and it holds 3,500 and can park 900 cars," Swerdloff said. "So if we don't get the Stadium, Catonsville will be our first preference." Even that, however, requires the ap proval of a Catonsville admin istrative officer. The tournament, scheduled to begin March 22, found itself out in the cold last week when officials at Essex Community College announced that they would be unable to host the event due to lack of parking and construction on school access roads. The snakebit tourney, if it ever comes off, will offer eight of the best lacrosse teams in the country with Carling Club, Virginia, Towson State, Brown, Cornell, Washington & Lee, Hobart and Maryland. Pairings made However, the ice is still thin under the future of the tourney. Last year's initial tournament produced disappointing attendance. "We need 3,000 people on Saturday and Sunday this yesr to break even," says Swerdloff. "If it doesn't break even this year, there won't ever be another lacrosse tournament here." Quarterfinal games will be held March 22 and 23. There would be two games Saturday morning and two more that afternoon, with two final games Sunday, March 25.

There was one slight prob lem at New York's camp. The sign read "Players Only." Cherry simply "turned around, went back to the car, took off my tie and sports coat and then I went limping back to the gate, like my back was out of whack or something.

Most fight managers regard southpaws in the same wav a hitter regards a knuckleball pitcher pure poison. But neither Cusimano nor Tillman seem disturbed by Backus's unorthodox style. "Backus is not a puzzling type of southpaw," noted Cusi mano. "He's not the awkward type who fights sideways. He fights almost in front of you. We pretty much know everything he's going to do."

In his two other Baltimore appearances, the 25-year-old sporting goods salesman looked simply devastating in knocking out Buddy Boggs and Tony Gay. The rangy Tillman carries more of a one-punch threat than the shorter Backus, who uses a hoos as his most dangerous weapon, Both fighters boast 17 KO's. Judging by the heavy scar tissue surrounding both of Backus's eyes, the ex-champ's best chance of winning would be by an early knockout. His face is too inviting a target for Tillman's sharp, elongated left jab. Backus has an overall mark of 36-13-4. Tillman is 39-3-1.
