Miss BriU failed to make the : cut in the first two Wheeling tournaments but said "I was ; never in bad trouble" during Friday's opening round. "Every hole on this course is interesting some holes you've got hills, some you've got water, some you've got trees. I thought I was going to have to stand on my head on a couple of shots." Tied at even par 72, two shots behind Miss Britz, were defending champion Susie McAllister, Jean Blalock, Sandra Post and Maria Astrologes. "This is my best competitive round since February," said Miss Britz. "I was fortunate on one hole when I hit into some sand and got jnto some trouble, but I took a bogey and ran.

Tei Allan ft St eelers Staring at Shotgun By JOHN NELSON ' : AP Sports Writer :: The Pittsburgh Steelers, after winning two con-: secutive Super Bowls, say they have things in peril: spective this year so Saturday night they can : concentrate on keeping the Washington Redskins' :: newest offensive innovation in perspective. : The Steelers, who have won three straight :: exhibition games, will be staring down the barrel of Washington's new shotgun offense, quarterbacked j: by Bill Kilmer and Joe Theismann. :: Being served up as cannon fodder will be one of the : finest defensive alignments in the National Football :: league the front four of L.C, Greenwood, Ernie : Holmes, Dwight White and alternating tackles Joe S Greene and and Steve Fumess. g The Steelers will start Terry Bradshaw at quar-S terback and, as an experiment, will have him ; punting in the second half. Rookie Mike Kruczek will : spell Bradshaw as the signal-cller in the second half. S "Most people seem to be picking Oakland to win the AFC championship this year," says Pittsburgh linebacker Andy Russell. "There must be a reason for it. So we analyze Oakland and we see they've got all kinds of talent, all kinds of football players. "It gets things in perspective. We realize we won a : lot of close games last season, against Green Bay v and some others, that easily could have gone the other way. g "Psychologically, all of this is kind of good for us. :$ There's no reason to get cocky and think that we're :: really something." BuschUrges Firing ST. LOUIS (AP) - St. Louis Cardinals President August A. Busch Jr., imploring fellow National League owners that "the time has come for a fresh start," has urged them to fire NL President Charles Feeney and John A. Gaherin, the major league's chief labor negotiator. "We have been kicked from pillar to post. We have received and accepted incompetent "leadership and the results are obvious," Busch told a closeddoor gathering of NL owners Thursday during the annual major league summer meetings in Phoenix, Ariz. A five-page text of the angry' presentation by'the 77-year-old Busch was released here. There was no immediate public response by the owners to Busch's remarks, although Commissioner Bowie Kuhn did say nothing was brought up regarding Feeney during a later -joint session of owners from both leagues Thursday night. Regarding Feeney, Kuhn told newsmen, "He's a fine man and a fine league president." The night before .Busch's speech, NL owners named a six-member committee to look into problems facing the league, one of which was said to be the status of Feeney, who took the position in 1970 after 24 years as a vice president in "the San Francisco organization. Busch's remarks apparently were prompted by the handling of labor negotiations with the players union, hy what he called Feeney's "bungling" in the proposed move of the San Answer to Previous Puzzle JgJ I C OMES A V I Alt" E D ojp i inIe! ste Td j n g w'ElTW'pi'-'fc T- sHe p ' i PAiH 1 a'b QeotJo mIepd I A M O O REqLU'Npi NG ' A R RhJvMuasER Sp MiElNn i riatnipn e!e'd ua i rE4-ItPaPeMa A P V gjNiTiS Vl 5 Tfti me a nest ojs akTa AltNNl'AlTleiSI IHIUIEI Story 9 Frozen ram 10 Handle (Fr.) 11 Belgian stream 19 Correlative of neither 20 Implement 22 British baby carriage 23 Church service 24 Fish sauce 25 Mexican foodstuff 26 Rip 27 Narrow way 28 Bombyx 29 Jabbers 31 Soothsayer 34 Let it stand (print.) 37 Old-time vehicle 38 Ailing 39 Tradesman 41 Protective covering 42 Forehead 43 Demolish 44 Genus of ducks 46 Roman emperor 47 The Orient 48 Large plant 50 Taxi 51 Harem room MOW!"

Both Kilmer and Theisman have experience with the shotgun Kilmer at San Francisco and Theismann in the Canadian Football League. ; But the Steelers' front four along with linebackers Russell, Jack Lambert and Jack Ham-will provide a stiff test for the new formation and for the new running back combination of Mike Thomas and John Riggins. Both Atlanta and Tampa Bay are seeking their first preseason victories after a pair of losses. Steve Spurrier may be fighting for his first-string quar-terbacking job with Tampa Bay, pressed by Parnell Dickinson, a rookie from Mississippi Valley. Steve Bartkowski will guide Atlanta. Injured quarterbacks Bob Griese and Earl Morrall may see their first action Saturday for Miami, 2-0, against the winless Philadelphia Eagles.

YAMAHA J Landry will try to reverse a trend that has seen the Lions, 1-2, lose five straight preseason games to Cincinnati dating back to 1970. The BalUmore-Chicago contest is another match of unbeaten teams. Baltimore's defense has not permitted a touchdown in two games, but Bears running back Johnny Musso has gained 160 yards in two games while Chicago was scoring a total of 42 points. The Dallas-Los Angeles duel has been overshadowed by a war among Cowboy quarterbacks. Clint Longley skipped out of camp and was suspended after punching Roger Staubach. It was their second fight in a week. "There was bad blood between us," said Longley. "He (Staubach) leaned over, got his pads and pushed a chair in my direction. I had a second to think and I swung. It would have happened again. There was bad blood between us ...I knocked him cold.,.." The Giants, with only three days' rest after beating the Jets Wednesday, take Larry Csonka and company to Houston, 0-2 in preseason. Houston QB Dan Pastorini has competed 12 of 22 for 147 yards , and one touchdown. Los Angeles running backs Lawrence McCutcheon and John Cappelletti teamed for the first time in the Rams' 26-14 victory over Dallas, and probably will be trouble for a SeatUe team which has given up 54 points in two losses. our league office have? St. Louis, Atlanta, Philadelphia, Cincinnati, the Mets, Houston and to some degree San Diego, all requested a meeting before a final vote was taken on the labor contract. . "One-half of the teams in our league wanted a meeting and our president could not or would not go to Commissioner Kuhn in our behalf. I wonder what would have happened if half of Lee MacPhail's (American) league wanted a meeting. My guess is he would have demanded one from the commissioner and gotten it." Busch called Gaherin's negotiations on the player's agreement with Marvin Miller, executive director of the Players Association, a "mismatch' "If anyone does not believe that we had our ass kicked in this labor matter, they are dead wrong," Busch said. "I have personally talked to every owner in this t room and everyone knows that John Gaherin was not up to the task." More importantly, "Busch said, is the status of the NL. "No matter what anyone says, in truth and in fact, the American League has become the more influential of the two leagues," he said. "The reason does not stem from the quality of ownership, but from the quality of the. professional leadership." Whsn you nesd to bank and your bank is closed - 00 Antsrcccn Bsn! o?

League Houston Astros. Sidney Schlenker, executive vice president of Astrodomain and president of the Astros, said, however, nothing can result from the talks for at least two or three months. "There has been nothing active in the last few weeks," Schlenker said. T. H. Neyland, Astrodomain. president, earlier had said negotiations have been held with Gilbert Gertner, a real estate developer. "But whether anything will ever come to pass, I just don't , know," Neyland said. Gertner was not available for comment. Neyland discounted a reported $45 million purchase price, saying it is easy to deny that such a figure "is anywhere near the actual figure under consideration." .; Astrodomain Corp. was founded by Judge Roy Hofheinz after the Astrodome opened in 1965. The corporation owns the Astroworld Amusements Park and undeveloped acreage near the Astrodome and holds a 98 Legal Actions Face Foreman UTICA, N.Y. CAP) - George Foreman goes into his nationally-televised fight Saturday afternoon against Scott LeDoux with the possibility of legal action hanging over his head. Foreman says he is looking at the fight as a prelude to a title match and an opportunity to .regain the world heavyweight championship he lost two years ago in Zaire to Muhammad AIL LeDoux hopes the fight will lift him out of obscurity. Foreman's pressence here has caused a stir of excitement in this economically depressed, upstate city. The mayor has declared "George Foreman Week" in the fighter's honor and given the former champ the key to the city. - Foreman was late for Friday's weigh-in when Oneida County sheriff deputies stopped him outside his motel to serve him with a civil summons. The summons stemmed from an attempt by the law offices of .onetime Democratic vice presdential candidate Sargent Shriver to collect legal fees the law firm claims are owed by , Foreman. v5U Vi7 KEY CARD 14 OCXS OOOH TO mxm BANKING Atttnui link sf Ctsmtrct 123 45b 18S0 -0HN 0 CUSTOMER ' '"5 a H" 4 .

Astrodomain announced completion of a $38 million long range financing program in 1972 but the corporation has been under the control of creditors nearly two years. Hofheinz continues as board chairman of both the corporation and the association but Neyland and Schlenker hold control as representatives of the creditors that include the General Electric Credit Corp., Ford Motor Credit Corp., Hartford National Credit Realty, and several banks. Hofheinz has been confined to a wheel chair since suffering a stroke in 1970. In mid-1975, Six Flags Inc., a subsidiary of Great Southwest Corp., acquired a 20-year lease on Astroworld. : - Until three months ago, Astrodomain also owned four hotels and motels adjacent to the Astrodome. The hotel complex was sold in May, however, to Servico Inc. for a reported $10 million. Servico operates Holiday Inns in several states. The papers were served about 10:15 a.m., CDT, ty Oneida County sheriffs deputies. A statement from Shriver, George McGovern's running mate in the 1972 presidential election, said the money was owed for legal services rendered to Foreman over the past four years. . John Finn an attorney who prepared the action for the firm of Fried, Frank, Harris, Shriver and Jacobson said he ex pected the matter to be resolved amicably. "We felt the problem arose because some people presently surrounding him (Foreman) have prevented our efforts to reach him personally to discuss this thing. We expect this to be overcome now," Finn said. Asked to respond to the action. Foreman said: "I'll let you know as soon as I take a look at it." He then stalked off to the weigh in, where he tipped the scales at 229'2 pounds. His blond-haired opponent from Minneapolis weighed in at 223 pounds. D D Ob'IH " ' " 1 l':;.-
