JJ.U THE ATLANTA CONSTITUTION, Thurs., Sept. 3, 1970 . 1 ' Hunt Proposes Super Circuit Millionaire Will Put Up $1 Million for Net Series FOREST HILLS, N.Y. (PI Multi-millionaire Lamar Hunt of Dallas will make a bid for control of big time tennis by putting up $1,050,000 for a series of professional tournaments next season. Details of the most grandiose financial undertaking in the game's history will be an nounced at a special ; ess conference called for 11 a.m., LOMBARDI Continued from Page 1-D mored since his second opera' tion. At midafternoon, the hospital issued its first medical bulletin i on Lombardi in which it said: "The attending physician reported there is no change in (his) condition. He is still in grave condition." At 9 p.m. EDT, hospital officials said there still was no change, that Lombardi's condition remained grave. Lombardi, now 57, came to Washington in 1969 after a year of imposed retirement following nine years and five world cham pionships with Green Bay. He took no active role in directing the Redskins this summer. After his first operation Lom bardi was seen in a few Washington restaurants and at the Redskins' office, but made no attempt to take over direction of the team. He named one of his assistants, Bill Austin, as interim coach. Lombardi did not visit the Redskins' training camp in Carlisle; Pa., and his only appearance at team preseason activities was at the rookie game against Baltimore when he sat in the press box. Lombardi saw the Redskins on television in three of their four preseason exhibition games. He also went to one meeting in New York during the owners-players pension squabble in July. His wife told Washington Post columnist Bob Addie that Lombardi overtaxed himself on the trip. In Tampa, Fla., where the Redskins are preparing for a Saturday exhibition game with the Miami Dolphins, a team spokesman said the players were told of Lombardi's grave condition at a meeting Tuesday night. Bosox, Tigers Split BOSTON (AP) - Cal Koonce fired a three-hitter and drove in a pair of runs with a bases-loaded single in the sixth inning Wednesday night as the Boston Red Sox defeated the Detroit Tigers 10-1 for a split of their day-night doubleheader. The Tigers won the first game 6-4, coming from behind with two runs to tie it in the seventh inning and then capitalizing on George Scott's costly error for a pair of unearned runs in the eighth. Gene Lamont of the Tigers became the 39th player in major league history to hit a home run in his first time at bat when he led off the third with a shot into the right field seats, but Carl Yastrzemski got that one back in the Boston half with his 36th homer of the year. Koonce, 3-3, poked his single to right for two more insurance runs in the sixth. In the opener Cesar Gutierrez led off the eighth with a single and reached second on a ground out, but with two-out Scott let Ike Brown's grounder go through him as Gutierrez raced home with what proved to be the winning run.

Hunt, who owns the champion Kansas City Chiefs in pro football and controlling interests in baseball and soccer enterprises, bankrolls World Championship Tennis, which controls all of the leading professional players. It's Hunt's plan to stage 20 tournaments, in the United States and abroad, each with a $50,000 prize list and a $10,000 award to the winner. Most of the events would be in the United States. . Each tournament would be limited to 32 men, with no women's division. The entry list would include both Hunt's imposing list of contract professionals plus leading independent pros, such as Arthur Ashe, Cliff Richey, Stan Smith and Clark Graebner. Lamar currently has 24 pros under contract, including Rod Laver, rated the world's best and leading money winner with $135,803; Ken Rosewall, Roy Emerson, Tony Roche, John Newcombe and Tom Okker. Under the planned format, perhaps only the top 15 or 20 of these would compete in the million-dollar series with some of the lesser lights on the payroll, such as Bill Bowrey of Australia, Pierre Barthes of France and Ron Holmberg of the United States, moving over to the Grand Prix circuit when there is a tournament conflict. "Lamar is going to have his cake and eat it, too," commented one tennis personality. The. Grand Prix consists of a series of tournaments under which players receive points for winning and placing in the late rounds of fixed events. Those with the higher point totals compete in a tournament at the end of the season for big purses. MISCELLANY - The Soviet Union grabbed another five gold medals at the World University Games and moved to within five of the United States' total of 19. . . . The Boston Patriots have announced the signing of 235-pound fullback Jim Nance after negotiations lasting several months. The NFL team disclosed no terms of the contract. . . .

TIGERS9 EXECUTION BAD Lackluster Practice -Jordan SHUG JORDAN Not Happy By DONALD ELMORE Constitution Sports Correspondent AUBURN, Ala.-"There's a whole lot lacking," said Auburn's Ralph Jordan Wednesday after his Tigers worked their second day in pads. "We didn't show a lot of enthusiasm," he said, "and we didn't do a lot of things right. We may not have put much into it because we were tired, but that's no excuse." Auburn's first offensive and defensive units were pitted against each other in pads for the first time this fall and Jordan said, "At best it was spotty. There was no consistency on either unit." Jordan criticized general execution, noting the Tigers had worked three days in shorts to develop execution and timing, but "you couldn't tell it Edgemon Dies JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. (AP) J. Ross Edgemon, former president of the Appalachian Baseball League, died Wednesday at the Veterans Administration Hospital at nearby Mountain Home. today," he said. "Mental lapses probably had a lot to do with it." Despite Jordan's gloomy post-practice observations, there were two bright spots. "We couldn't help noticing Tommy Yearout's play today," he said, "and Bobby Strickland came up with several good plays as he is subject to do." Yearout, a junior tackle from Birmingham, started the 1969 season as an offensive guard but moved to defense in mid-season. He had excellent games against Florida, Alabama and Georgia. Strickland, a senior, is rated the "best linebacker in the deep south" by Auburn defensive mastermind Paul Davis. From Grand Bay, Ala., he is a two year veteran. Jordan said the Tigers practice session was slowed because several players had a virus. "We only had four running backs," he said, "barely had enough to work, certainly not enough to work effectively."
