The two finalists; will be decided Wednesday when'the high-flying Dutchmen, favorites at 13-8, take on Brazil at Dortmund and West Germany meets Poland in Frankfurt. ^ Though the organizers planned the competition on a mini-league basis, the Wednesday games will be in effect "semifinals" as on the old knockout basis. This is because the four front- runners all won their first two games in the second final round, leaving Argentina, East Germany, Sweden and Yugoslavia to battle for a runner-up position. In a goal-burst of exciting football Sunday, West Germany crushed Sweden, 4-2, Brazil powered to a 2-1 victory over Argentina, Poland edged Yugoslavia, • 2-1, and Holland coasted home, 2-0, against East Germany. Holland and West Germany will have - the advantage in Wednesday's games since a draw will be enough to see them through to the final in Munich July 7. Goals by Johan Neeskens and Robby Rensenbrinck assured victory for the Dutch Sunday. Brazilian manager Mario Zagalo said his side would have to play better .football to reach the final. "I am not fully satisfied," he- said after goals by Rivelino and Jairzinho took his side to victory despite a Brindisi success for Argentina. "Our object is to reach the final but we must produce stronger • football against Holland." Poland's team manager, Kazimierz Gorski said he was convinced his side could reach the finals after winning every game it has played in the tournament. Grzegorz Lato, highest individual scorer in the tournament, brought his tally to six with the winning goal against Yugoslavia after Valdimir Deyna(penalty) and Yugoslavia's Stanislaw Karasi had netted." The thriller of the day was West Germany's meeting with underdog Sweden. The. Swedes shocked the 67,000 sell-out crowd by scoring first against the run 6f play with "a superb volley from Ralf Edstroem'. All-Stars announced tutce ^ Another Yank swim powerhouse is forming SANTA CLARA (UPI) - J- This may be an "in between" „ Olympic year, but George —• Haines predicts by the time the 1976 Montreal Games roll around, -the United States .will have a powerhouse swimming team. "All the times are!gr*at for this time of the year.^he^sauf Sunday at the conclusion of the Santa ^jGhfra International Swimming Championships. "By J9761 think we will have the greatest team we've "ever . had," the four-time Olympic * coach added. "We will be strong in almost every event, especially in the men's freestyle/ butterfly and individual medley and the women's freeatyle and medley. "We're going to be strong in every event, no question about it." Haines has reason to be optimistic. < Atthree-day, 36-event invitia- tauu. meet, U.S. swimmers accounted for seven meet records, indudwg four in the relays. Two other meet marks set by Canada's Wendy Cook in the 100 and 200 -meter backstroke events. Heather Greenwood, a 16- year-old high school senior from Fresno, Calif., got the meet off, to a world record. startJFriday by winning^he women's 400- meterfreestyle in 4:17.33, bettering Kenna Rothammer's year-old mark of 4:18.07. Miss Greenwood, dressed in the recently * approved "rubolasnV suit, came back Saturday to set a meet record in the 200-meter freestyle with a 2:03 :73 clocking, was out- touched by Shirley Babashoff in the 100 and finished third in the 1,500. "She's a great young swimmer," Haines said of Miss Greenwood. "And she's going to be even better." It was in the 1,500 Sunday that Karen Hazen, Arden Hills, Calif., set an American mark and barely missed the world record set earlier this year by Australia's Jenny Turrall. Miss Hazen, another 18-year- old, Was as many as four seconds under the world record pace at 1,300-meter mark. She NFL on strike Sports iiNfiTOMrTTPti — with .. Garvev Dredicted a Ions -» WASHINGTON (UPI) - With the slogan "No Freedom, No Football," NFL players launched a strike today. that threatened to be disruptive, costly to the owners and of long duration. Almost without exception, veterans from superstars to taxi squadders prepared to man picket lines and boycott preseason training camps, Jpegin- ,ning -with the San Diego Chargers Wednesday. Player representatives of the 26 NFL teams reported solid support in their ranks. "There won't be any neutrals this time," Ed Garvey, executive secretary of the NFL Players Association, said, as the strike was automatically kicked off Sunday midnight. It was the second strike action by the pro football union and the fourth in major league sports since 1970. John Thompson, Garvey's bargaining counterpart with the owners' Management Council, expressed "disappointment" that the strike was triggered but declined to predict how long it might continue. Bargaining talks under the auspices of the federal mediation service collapsed on the rocks of a series of "freedom issue" demands by the players seeking the right to switch teams when their contracts expire and to exercise a veto over possible trades. , ' was even with 100 meters to^go but finished in 16:49.41, a_scant 1.2 seconds off>Miss Turrall's record. --"In addition to Miss Cook, double meet record performers were Mike Bruner, DeAnza College, Calif., who won the 400 and 1,500 freestyles (4:03.76. 16:03.84) and' John" Hencken, Santa Clara, in the 200 and 100 breaststrokes (2:24.62, 1:05.31). Bruner was 1 the meet's only triple winner. He placed first in the 400-meter individual medley. • «*» Other meet records were set by Marcia Morey, Decatur, Iowa, in the women's 100-meter breaststroke" with 1:15.54 and John Naber Ladera Oaks, Calif., in the men's 200-meter breaststroke with 2:04.94. Miss Morey also won the 200 meter breaststroke to become a double winner. She was joined by D'Lynn Damron, Dallas, who won the womenVone-and three-meter diving event, and Mike Brown, also of Dallas^wiw took the men's platform and one-meter diving events. Garvey predicted a long strike which could wreck the traditional televised NFL preseason opener between the College All-Stars and the Miami Dolphin Super Bowl champions in Chicago July 26 as "well as later exhibition games. "I'm confident we can hold out on strike until a new collective bargaining agreement is signed," he said, adding that in his view the owners seemed embarked on a "union- busting" course. Thompson said aB of the NFL teams were proceeding, with plans for their pre-season camps and to play exhibition schedules even with rookies and free agents if necessary. "Our current plans go on the assumption that our football fans want a football season and we're going to do everything we j. can to• get ready for it," he commented. One major player, linebacker Mike Curtis of the Baltimore Colts, has vowed to cross the picket lines but player representatives reported general support of the strike action was almost unanimous. Miami players representative Doug Swift advised Garvey that Dolphin veterans would boycott their pre-season camp and were opposed to playing the All-Star game if the strike persists. Dolphin wide receiver Howard Twilley has advocated playing' the game. ' v Giants 0-3 under Wes Marshall too tough SAN FRANCISCO (111*1) — There may be no limit to Mike Marshall's pitching appearances this year, except perhaps by the schedule. For instance, he can't pitch today, and that's only because it is an off day for the Los Angeles Dodgers before they start a killing road trip that has them playing nine games in the following six days. Marshall, upstaging the great Henry Aaron in the year of his; glory, worked in his team's 11th consecutive game Sunday and wrapped up the San Francisco Giants over the final two innings in a 5-3 victory. It also was Marshall's 51st appearance in the 76 games the Dodgers have played thus far.; He worked in a record 92 games' for the Montreal Expos' last, year but at the rate he is going, Marshall will break that mark sometime in August. Marshall claims he isn't interested in personal records and that the only thing that counts in his mind is his team winning. "The best way to say it," he • said, "is that it's still a team game. I really don't pay that much attention to how often I work. As long as I feel good I'll pitch. In my last two years at Montreal there never was a time when I didn't feel well enough to pitch. That's the way I feel right now. If I continue to feel well, I,won't ever tell Walt (Alston-) I don't want to pitch." . Sunday's victory, which went to Andy Messersmith (8-2), was the product of a two-run eighth inning homer by Bill Buckner off Tom Bradley, making a relief appearance by way of getting back into the starting rotation. Buckner hit a fastball off Bradley, minutes after new Giants' skipper Wes Westrum had told catcher Dave Rader to "pitch around" Buckner. What Westrum meant is not to give Buckner a pitch he could hit out of the park. "I couldn't have made it any plainer than that to my catcher and pitcher," said Westrum, now 0-3 as manager of the Giants. "You can be sure nothing like that will happen again." Westrum and the Giants also have the day off today and the manager promised some changes in the San Francisco lineup for Tuesday night's game with the San Diego Padres. "I want to think over some things Monday," said Westrum, "but it's obvious we don't have any home run punch. Wedge, on green, wins -PEBBLE BEACH (UPI) Even the pros rarely if ever use a wedge on the green.. But that's what young Curtis Worley did at Pebble Beach's 17th green Saturday to win the 1974 California State Amateur Golf Championship? The 17th at Pebble was an hourglass green and for Saturday's windup the pin was placed at one end. Worley's teeshot on the par-three, 218-yard hole, was a three-wood that landed at the lower end of the green. A hump was between his ball and the cup and there was no other 'way to get to the cup except to wedge it. "I -didn't think that much about it," said the 18-year-old Worley later, after he had beaten 18-year-old Mike Brannan of nearby Salinas, 1 up, over 36 holes to win the covetous title. "I had a putter in my hand as I approached the green but once I saw where the ball was, I never hesitated in trying, my wedge." * ^ Worley made* a perfect pitch, barely picking up surface turf off the green, and the ball plopped 2 feet from the cup. He rolled it in and took the lead for the first time in the match since the second hole. On the 18th, both had bogey sixes and it was all over.

Sports Editor US women set track records BAKERSFIELD (UPI) Twenty-one-year-old Debra Sapenter, the heavy favorite in the 440-yard run, highlighted the National AAU Women's outdoor. championships Saturday night by blazing to a 52.2 clocking, equalling the world record. Miss Sapenter, of, Prairie View A&M of Texas, _ whose previous best this year was a 53.4, tied the record set by Kathy Hammond of Sacramento, Calif., in August of 1972. Miss Sapenter had to fight off temperatures in the 100s and dusty desert winds to defeat Sheila Choates of the Tennessee State Track Club, who was second in 53.6. Marilyn Neufville of the Los Angeles Track Club was third, also at 53.6. Teen-age sensation Mary Decker was hard-pressed to win her specialty, .the 880-yard run. Miss Decker, from Garden Grove, Calif., had to stage a strong finish to come from behind and defeat Robin Campbell. Miss Decker was tinted in 2:05.2, while Miss Campbell finished inches back at 2:05.9. Renaye Bowen of the Lakewood International' Track Club remained undefeated this.year in the 100-yard dash, inching past Alice Annum of Sports International, and third- finishing Mattline Render, of New York.

(Round Valley (Covelo) is hot competing in Watson wins 1 st pro title By ED SAINSBURY CHICAGO (UPI) — Tom Watson has the confidence and optimism of a 24-year-old pro golfer, i .... • Thus he was unperturbed Sunday when he began the last round, of the $200,000 Western Open trailing Tom Weiskopf by six strokes on one of the tougher golf courses the pros play, the 7,002-yard, par-71 Butler National Golf Club. "I knew I was in good position to win if Tom made a mistake," Watson said, "and he made some mistakes." Watson was right. He shot the best round of the day among the 76 players, a two-under-par 69, made up eight strokes on Weiskopf and won the $40,000 top prize, his first tournament victory, by two strokes, with a three-over-par 287 for the 72 holes. Weiskopf's mistakes, the ones that hurt, came on the last two holes. He needed no better than pars on those difficult 454-yard and 446-yard par 4s to win the tournament. He got a five oh the 17th and then, tied with Watson at three-under par, his game collapsed. His big drive on 18 went to the left, into the water and after a penalty stroke, he missed the green with his approach, winding up with a double bogey. Watson has been ready to win for two years. Joining the PGA tour in 1972, he earned $31,081, and in 1973 he earned $74,973 with his best finish a third place at Hawaii.
