(AP)-A strike by major league baseball players seemed closer Sunday night, some seven hours after a federally mediated meeting began between representatives of the players and owners. "I think they're doing everything possible to provoke a strike," said Marvin Miller, executive director of the Major League Baseball Players Association. "It's as clear as can be. They're acting like 4-year-olds. They won't move on anything and they stiil won't listen to the players' side." Representatives of the two sides met with Ken Moffett, deputy director of the Federal Mediation and Conciliation Service, for about 40 minutes at the beginning of the meeting. Moffett then spent the next 4Vi hours going back and forth for separate meetings with each side. Sports digest Owens' condition TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - Former Olympic track star Jesse Owens, 65, weakened Sunday in his battle against the twin effects of a lung infection and inoperable lung cancer, a University of Arizona hospital official said. His condition was "very critical," said Hal Marshall, director of information services for the hospital. "He's surprising his doctors with that old heart that helped him win those Olympic honors, but he's deteriorating," Marshall said, adding that Owens' wife Ruth was at his side. Alternative Games are opposed COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) - Groups governing America's amateur athletes have told the Carter administration they oppose the boycott of the Summer Olympics in Moscow and will not participate at any alternative competition, the Colorado Springs Gazette Telegraph reported Sunday. Officials of the national governing bodies offered that message Saturday in a closed session with Nelson Ledsky, director of the State Department's Olympic Task Force and Bob Berenson, assistant director of the White House domestic policy staff, the newspaper said. Porter to return at end of April KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - All-star catcher Darrell Porter will be released from an alcohol rehabilitation program in late April, not April 12 as previously reported, his father has announced. "It was a misunderstanding that he was going to come home April 12," Ray Porter said in a telephone interview from his home in Oklahoma City. "He is in a program that lasts five to six weeks, and this will put it at the end of April." Porter, who formerly played for the Milwaukee Brewers, left the Kansas City Royals' spring training complex in Florida March 14. AH honors deceased U.S. boxer By Associated Press Three-time world heavyweight boxing champion Muhammad Ali was among those who jammed a high school gymnasium in Port Town-send, Wash., Saturday in a memorial service for Charles Robinson. Robinson died along with 23 members of the U.S. boxing team in a March 14 plane crash in Poland. With Robinson died the town's dream of national recognition for the 18-year-old native son. "Chuck will always be remembered and in boxing he would have been a top-notch professional," Ali told the crowd. Meanwhile in Warsaw, Poland, the official news agency PAP said Sunday the failure of the engines or the steering systems may have been the reason for the crash of the Polish airliner. Beaten Timber fan files lawsuit TACOMA, Wash. (AP) The Portland Timbers Soccer Club and others are being sued for $11 million by a man who charges he was beaten by two New York Cosmos players during a game two years ago. Richard W. Parker of Tacoma claims in the suit he was beaten by Cosmos players Werner Roth and Bobby Smith, after he cheered a Timbers go-ahead goal during an overtime shootout on May 17, 1978. The suit was filed Thursday in U.S. District Court in Tacoma.

Marvin Miller Both factions got together again for about 80 minutes before breaking for dinner about 10:30 p.m. (CST). The meeting was to continue after the break and figured to last well into early today. Ray Grebey, the owners' top bar worsens "1 V'3 Jesse Owens Darrell Porter Jf- if LT In gainer as executive director of their Major League Player Relations Committee, would not discuss the negotiations. He directed all questions to Moffett. "I'm not going to get into issues. We've gone over the differences," the mediator said. "The issues aren't that complicated. I've met with the parties, explored the differences and made suggestions." Moffett was asked if there was any progress. "Anytime you're meeting you are making progress, I guess," he replied. Was he optimistic? "I couldn't even comment on that," he said. The talks are aimed at formulating a new four-year basic agreement and avoiding a threatened players' strike, which now seems to be more than a threat. A meeting of the players Pate throws away' Heritage lead HILTON HEAD ISLAND, SC. (AP) Jerry Pate, who blew the lead on the 53rd hole with a double bogey, was asked about his chances for victory in today's rain-delayed final round of the $300,000 Heritage Golf Classic. "I feel pretty good about it," Pale said. "I'm really playing pretty well. I feel like I've thrown away, just thrown away. 15 shots this week." Two of them came Sunday on the par-three 17th hole at the Harbour Town Golf Links, which has been inundated by heavy rains and was raked by guaty, tricky winds. Pate, who led the first two rounds and again held the top spot after play ended Sunday, went from one ahead to one behind with a double-bogey five. "I just got my body in front of the shot and, with the wind, got it to the right," he said. He flubbed his chip from the extremely wet rough, reached the fringe in three and walked off one shot back of co-leaders John Mahaffey and Doug Tewell. Mahaffey and Tewell had matching 54-hole totals of 207, six shots under par on the water-spotted Harbour Town Golf Links. Mahaffey shot a third-round 70 and Tewell, a 30-year-old non-winning veteran of five years of PGA Tour activity, had a 72. Pate, who had led or shared the lead through the first two rounds, had a one-stroke advantage going to the Tracy whips Martina, earns $100,000 CARLSBAD, Calif. (AP) - Tracy Austin collected her second $100,000 check in eight days by defeating Martina Navratilova, 7-5, 6-2, in the championship match of the $200,000 Clairol Crown Classic tennis event Sunday. Austin, the 17-year-old high school junior from Rolling Hills, Calif., required 89 minutes, most of them in the first set, to repeat her straight-set victory over Navratilova in the winter circuit championships one week Norder takes singles title on 703 Ron Norder, who fired 703 during the fourth weekend of rolling, was crowned Madison Bowling Association city tournament net singles champion Sunday. Norder, who bowls out of Verona's Kamm-Ann Bowl, put together games of 200, 267 and 236 for the crown. Madison's Jeff Mautz, a 172-aver-age bowler, picked up the first-place money for the gross singles title, totalling 731 on 664 and 67 pins handicap. Norder finished second at 729. The Madison duo of Joe Peirce and Leo McMahon, who moved into the top spot the second weekend, held on to take top money in gross doubles. Peirce, averaging 169, hit 556, while McMahon, averaging 160, hit 597. The pair added 170 pins handicap to their 1153 net for a 1323 aggregate. The Waunakee duo of Ed Adler and Ron Bradt were crowned net doubles champions on 1216. Edler fired 586 while Bradt hit 630. The Madison ABC Shirt Lettering team of Gary Zuege, Irv Marks Jr., Jim Mobry, Russ Dunn and Paul Rit-ter took home the team net trophy on 2906. ABC had games of 977, 966 and 963 in its big total.

Miller said he did not intend to make any recommendations to the players regarding the date of a strike. "The mediator is working under a handicap," Miller said. "They (the owners) haven't given him anything to talk about and they called him in. They haven't negotiated in good faith from the beginning. Surface bargaining is what we've seen. "I'm really disgusted with the way they've approached the problem. I have felt from the beginning that they were trying to provoke a strike and very little has happened to change that." Kven though a strike date may be declared Tuesday, Moffett said he would hope to be involved in future meetings with the two sides. Schroeder blasts critics HILTON HKAD ISLAND, S C. (AP) - John Schroeder lashed back Sunday at his fellow pro golfers whose criticism of him Saturday reached a national television audience. "It shows no class, the poorest kind of judgment." Schroeder said during the third round of the Heritage Golf Classic. "They were accusing me of something I haven't done. They knew they were miked. They knew they would be heard. It makes me look bad. It really shocked me." Tom Kite, waiting to tee off at the 17th hole with Bruce Lietzke and Lanny Wadkins while all three were were wearing live microphones, said Saturday, "He (Schroeder) should be fined and fined and fined and suspended (for playing slowly)." Sunday, Kite said he wished the situation had not arisen. "Obviously, yesterday is one of those situations you wished had never happened," Kite said. "It was sort of like locker room conversation. There is a time and place for everything. This should have been in the locker room. It shouldn't have been on national television. John (Schroeder) is hurt and he has every right to be. I'm sorry for him." 17th tee. But his three-iron shot was well to the right in the gusty winds. He chipped with a sand wedge, said he "hit it fat," and left it very short, still in the rough. His next shot just reached the fringe, and he two-putted for a double bogey that sent him from one ahead to one behind. He finished with a 73 and a 208 total. He was tied with Johnny Miller, a two-time former Heritage champion who broke a long slump with a victory earlier in New York. The initial set turned on an Austin service break in the 11th game. Before that both players had broken serve once. With the score 5-5, Navratilova was wide twice with ground strokes and hit long on a seemingly easy overhead to hand Austin three break points. On the second of those, Navratilova netted a forehand to give Austin the break and opportunity to serve for the Norm Hillebrand, Ron Brunner and Lyle Esser had 2623 net and added 496 pins handicap. Bill Leidich of Madison was crowned Class A all-events champ on 1807 while Pat McSherry of Verona took the Class B all-events title on 1727. All champions were new this year.

Also present at the meeting was American League President Lee Mac-Phail, National League President Chub Feeney, baseball attorney Donald M. Fehr and Jim Rarr, a pitcher for the California Angels. "Maybe he (the mediator) will work a miracle," Fehr said. "The free agency question doesn't end all major problems, but if we can get it settled, U would be a tremendous step forward and indicate we may be able to get out of this logjam." Miller met Sunday morning with members of the Californa Angels, the 26th and final team he has polled during spring training. The Angels voted, 30-0, to authorize a strike. That brought the final total of players association members voting to 9t71 in favor of a strike. The lone dissenter was infielder Jerry Terrell of the Kansas City Rovals who voted no because three weeks ago. Miller birdied three holes in a row and had a 68 that was one of the three best scores of the windy day. It was two more shots back to South African Gary Player, Leonard Thompson and Bob Murphy tied at 210. Player fought his way to a 69, Murphy had a 70 and Thompson a 73. Tom Watson, the defending champion and season's leading money-winner, had to settle for a 73 that left him well back at 214. Arnold Palmer, win set. Austin seized it, allowing the 23-year-old Czech expatriate only one point in the final game. It was the first outdoor event of 1980 for the women tennis professionals and Navratilova had difficulty with conditions. In the second set, she could not control her powerful serve and therefore was incapable of applying much pressure to the steady Austin.

"The board will make the decision to strike or not on Tuesday," said Miller. "I certainly admit it (a strike) is likely." Milier confirmed speculalion that a strike might not be called immediately. Among rumored strike dates are Tuesday, April 9 (opening day), May 30 and July 10, immediately after the All-Star Game. The major issue is an owner's proposal to adjust the amount of compensation a team receives after losing a free agent. The owners propose that a team signing a highly sought free agent be required to give up a player rather than an amateur draft choice. In the owner's proposal, the free agent's new team could protect only 15 of its players from the selection process. ner .of the first Heritage Classic in 1969, shot 71 and was at 215. After Friday's play had been rained out, tour officials had scheduled a double round of 36 holes for Sunday. But steady overnight rains again flooded the course and made play impossible in the morning. With only 18 holes completed Sunday, the final round is set for today. Tewell, who shared the second round lead with Pale, appeared in danger of falling out of contention, lie was three over par after eight holes but birdied from the fringe on the next and regained a spot among the leaders with a five-iron shot to four feet on the next. Mahaffey, who beat Pate in a playoff for' the 1978 PGA championship, went three-under-par for the day with a 20 foot putt at the 12th hole and had the lead alone at that point. But he bogey ed two of the next three holes, fell behind and then got back to a piece of the lead with Pate's critical double bogey.

The series between Navratilova and Austin for 1980 is at two victories apiece, but Navratilova retains the No. 1 world ranking. "I don't want to talk about No. 1 yet, it's too early in the year," said Austin. "She's beaten me twice. I've beaten her twice, but I've beaten her in bigger tournaments." Navratilova received $50,000 as the tournament runner-up. In a match for third place, Evonne Goolagong Cawley blasted Billie Jean King, 6-0, 6-3. Cawley collected $30,000 as the third place finisher, while King was awarded $20,000. A crowd of 4,900 observed the matches played at the La Costa resort hotel.
