The oldest continuous swimming meet' in Ukiah Dolphins history, and rivaled only by the Redwood Empire Swim League championships as the biggest on the Dolphins' busy schedule, the 1974 Soroptimist Club Invitational will feature competitors from Eureka, Red Bluff, Santa Rosa, Novato, Sebastopol, Clear Lake (Lakeport) and points between, plus full contingents of both Dolphins II and Dolphins III teams, and smaller entries from Sonoma and Petahima. Eleven teams in all — counting two Ukiah Dolphins teams, one coached by George Sutton, the other by former. Dolphin Cathy Davis, assisted by Rick Cleland and by Sharon Ray at the first of the year — begin arriving in Ukiah Friday night, by auto, camper and any means possible. Records Loom With the Napa Swim Club out of it because of going up to Division I the favorite's roll is being assigned to Eureka's Redwood Swim Club, which will be pushed to the limit by the powerful Red , Bluff Tritans, the Dolphins II and assorted other swimmers. With medals for the first three finishing swimmers and ribbons awarded the next fastest three, plus assorted team and high point swimmer trophies the always generous Ukiah Jproptimists, all-time best performances in every stroke! Hilda Mueller, of the Ukiah Soroptimist Club, who also is the mother of a fine swimmer, and others will be manning the intricate, all-important registration and clerks' desk, headed by Mrs. Charles Doll. Hilda, Liz Ward, Rita Sperry and Artis Campbell also will be doing desk duty along with women from other clubs. Charley Doll will be referee of the biggest meet to be held in- Ukiah this season, since Sebastopol is hosting the Division II meet normally held at Ukiah. • This Soroptimist; meet, sadly, will be the last Dolphins' meet and Soroptimist Invitational at which Marshall Leve, a starter, and Ed. Carpenter, a stroke and turn judge, will officiate. Both already are working at SusanviUe and Grand Junction, Colq., but will be back for this big Soroptimist meet < before returning to (heir new communities with their wives and children. Hard at work as meet director for the 1974 Sorop­ timist "Fourth of July" Invitational, to be held July 6-7 this year, is Sara Drury. She reports that the favored Eureka Redwood Swim Club, with 376 entries, tops the entry lists, matching the two full teams entered by the Ukiah Dolphins. Some swimmers will be in five events, some only in one or two, three or four. So figure roughly 70 to 100 youngsters representing each of the major teams, such as the . Dolphins, Redwood, Red Bluff, etc.: Lesser numbers on some other teams.

Wayne Sperry, clerk of the course, and his wife Rita, who . is helping him at home and will work at the registration table, are up to their eyeballs in names of outstanding swimmers recording some outstanding, eye-popping times. If reported times are accurate there should be a flock of hew meet, Dolphin team, Ukiah pool and personal Track squad works for USSR test DURHAM, N.C. (UPI) — The American men and women competitors in this week's .USA^USSR track and field meet begin practice today at Duke University's Wallace Wade Stadium, one day behind their formidable Soviet opponents. , The American women's team, which is expected to be led by hurdler Patty Johnson, was chosen last weekend in Bakersfield, Calif., and did not begin arriving here until Monday. The U.S. men's team, coached by Jimmy Carnes of the University of Florida, was selected at the National AAU meet in Oakland, Calif., a week earlier. All of the athletes were to participate in a press and photo day at the stadium, the site of the 12th annual outdoor dual meet on Friday and Saturday. Carnes is looking toward the two -day meet as a preliminary for U.S. track and field stars aiming for the 1976 Olympics in Montreal. "It doesn't bother me a bit to go against the Russians with a young team," Carnes said. "Some of our members are just young enough ndt to know they can be beat. "I know the promoters in Durham would like to have the best there is now, but we've got to start" developing new talent and that meet is certainly the place to do it. It's going to help us in Montreal." The U.S. team will be hampered by the absence of several top performers who passed up the AAU qualifier. town from all _ Saturday and not leaving until Sunday afternoon — late. — late.

Senior Little League Ukiah All-Stars hard at work Little Leaguers are not the only ones preparing for postseason All-Star play in the immediate future. South Ukiah Senior Little League All-Stars "go to the post" first,,so to speak, next week, and Manager Dennis Lucido and' helpers are busy sharpening up the baseball . ability and agility of 18 boys fe- 14 years of age who will re present Ukiah in 1974 Senior League All-Star play. Six players from Knights of , Columbus, two seasons champions of the Senior League in Ukiah; as well as three-each from "Value-Giant and G&G Tire, and two from Mendocino Optical make up 14-All-Stars, with four boys, Bill Elliott, Lon Elliott, Walt Hutchinson and Joe Peterson rounding out the initial All-Star squad.

Kibbe, 19, a righthander, is from Quincy, Calif., and pitched last season for Mendocino Junior College. Wilkes must get killed 1st OAKLAND (UPI)' — Just as soon as Keith Wilkes gets killed, he'll sign a Golden State Warriors contract. t That's the word from Warrior General Manager Dick Vert- lieb, who explained Monday that the 6-7 UCLA All America forward is busy these days in a film called "The Open Man." But the character he plays dies in a day or two and that he can then negotiate with Wilkes. WIMBLEDON, England (UPI) — Linky Boshoff, a little known South African, forced a string of errors from fourth seeded Rosie Casals today to beat her 6-2, 6-3, and enter the women's singles quarterfinals at the All England tennis championships. Miss Casals, of San Francisco, was the first seed to fall in the women's division and she could not blame rain, wind and a slow court for her exit. The 17-year-old South African won on merit. While Casals was falling, the top three girls all advanced in straight sets. Billie Jean King of Long Beach, Calif., defeated Lesley Charles of Britain, 6-3, 6-0; Chris Evert of Ft. Lauderdale, Fla., beat Mona Schallau of Iowa City, Iowa, 75, 6-1, and third seeded Evonne Goolagong of Australia ^defeated Kris Kemmer of Los Angeles, 6-1,64. Casals was unable to make an overhead while she missed with two out of three volleys. In the end her confidence was so shaken that she stayed back and did'not even go for the overhead when Boshoff hoisted lobs. The young South African also scored repeatedly with delicate chips and placements. Casals opened by breaking service and everything looked rosy for Rosie. Then the roof fell in, Boshoff taking five straight games to 5-1. Casals hit back for 2-5 but she again was broken for the set, and then trailed 3-0 in the second set. , Casals rallied briefly to 2-3, but she was to win only one more game. In the, ninth 'Boshoff came back from love- 40 and clinched a quarterfinal place on her second match point with a forehand drive- volley. King broke for a 4-2 lead against Charles, a British Wightman Cup player, and was to allow the Briton only one more game in the match. All her shots worked and she had no more than a workout. Evert played cautiously against Schallau in the first set, her opponent hitting accurately from the baseline. Chris served for the first set in the 10th game, but failed to put it away, surrendering serving with a doublefault. Evert now took the match by the throat, taking the next two games to complete a 40- minute first set and then racing to a 4-0 lead in the second. Goolagong, who had all manner ' of. trouble against countrywoman Kerry Harris in the third round, won six straight games to take the first set from Kemmer. The American broke for a 3-2 lead in the second set, but Evonne hit back to 3-all and then clinched set and match with a 10th game break. When the day's play began, the United States, with 13 players, led the most international field in the history of the Wimbledon championships into the matches for places in the quarterfinals.. The field today, is without its fifth seed, the 18-year-old schoolgirl favorite, Bjorn Borg of Sweden, who went down in straight sets Monday to Ismael El Shafei of Egypt, hardly lifting a racket in •anger. Borg, who has complained of fatigue since winning the French and Italian titles said: "I'm not disappointed. I'm happy that I can now go home, for a rest." loscpe Tanner of Lookout Mountain, Tenn., got to the last 16\by beating Arthur Ashe of Mianu, the eighth seed in a matcirpkyed, as" most others were Monday, in quirky gusts of wind. Tanner said the wind seemed to bother Ashe more than it did himT" There are 14 nations represented in the last 32—and the Australians with five and Britain with two are the only others with more than one representative. The remaining countries, widely scattered over the globe, dramatize the spread of big time tennis. It would be nice to credit love of sport for the upsurge but the missionaries in the days of amateur tennis only had moderate success with the gospel of free travel and expenses. What has every kid with access to a racket out practicing is the most potent lure of them all—money. Mrs. King, who is aiming for all three titles—singles, doubles and mixed—said the center court wind kept her from using a drop shot Monday. She had a little trouble with her forehand early in her straight sets win over Francoise Durr of France and shouted "I don't believe it" when one after the other went into the net. FRANKFURT, Germany (UPI) — Holland, by common consent, may have played the finest football in the 1974 World Soccer Cup, but Brazil emerged today as the team the remaining contenders most • fear. Said West German Manager Helmut Schoen: "1 am glad we don't have to play the Brazilians. For me, they are something like the Sphinx." Holland meets Brazil Wednesday in the Group A match which decides which of the two teams makes the final in Munich July 7. West Germany meets Poland to decide the Group B survivor for the championship. Holland and West Germany need only draws to advance to the final. Their opponents must win. .: But Dutch superstar Johan Cruyff said, "Brazil is playing better each game.and every player is obeying orders. That's why I have tremendous respect and a little bit of fear for them." Sportswriters have attacked Brazil's laborious progress through the tournament as "dull," "dour," "defensive 0 and "miserable." — Holland team Manager Rinus Michels preferred the word "impressive." "The 45 minutes of the Brazil-Argentina match I saw were most impressive," he said. "I saw plenty of attacking football, more than enough to believe Wednesday's match will be a devil to win." Pele said of his countrymen: "We are now approaching top form. I am convinced we will make the final." ' Cruyff; whose team has played its last two matches in pouring rain, took antibiotics and vitamins to stop a cold. "I cannot say definitely he will be fit for the Brazil game but I think so," said team physician Dr. Fritz Kessel. » West Germany believes it has at last found the ideal combination in the 11 players who left the field Sunday after a thrill-packed 4-2 victory over Sweden. Schoen indicated he planned no changes. "We have found our ideal team," he said, meaning Uli Hoeness is firmly restored to the team after a loss of form which led to a row between Hoeness and team Captain Franz Beckenbauer. Poland's manager, Kazimierz Gorski, said ft two of his star players—Kazimierz Deyna and Andrzej Szarmach—who pulled muscles Sunday, will be fit for Wednesday. Out of contention for the Cup but playing for a place in the last four Wednesday are, Argentina vs. East Germany and Yugoslavia vs. Sweden. Argentine officials said the squad would not withdraw from the tournament because of President Juan D: Peron's death. The players will wear black armbands, and ask permission for a minute's silence before the game.

A's rally to top Angels UPI Sports Dick Williams' return to managing was proceeding in a triumphant fashion Monday night until the Oakland A's decided to throw a victory party of their own. Then, a crowd of 16,405 which turned out at Anaheim, Calif., to see Williams make his debut as manager of the California Angels watched in dismay as the A's rallied for three runs in the eighth inning to score a 5-3 victory. Until then the night had belonged to Williams...first, with his surprise appointment of Frank Robinson as the Angels' first captain...then with the standing ovation...followed by an argument with the umpires...and then as Nolan Ryan carried a 3-2 lead into the eighth. , It looked like Williams was working instant magic with the Angels, who had lost 20 of their previous 28 games and are in last place in the American League's Western Division. But Bert Campaneris began the comeback against^the A's former boss, who led tKem"to world championships in 1972 and 1973, with a single, took second on a passed ball and scored on Sal Bando's double. Bando took third on a wild pitch during an intentional walk to Reggie Jackson, and scored on Joe Rudi's sacrifice fly. Angel Mangual's double scored the third run of the frame. Rollie Fingers, called on in relief in 12 of 14 World Series games played by the A's under Williams, picked up his seventh victory while Ryan suffered his seventh loss against 10 wins. It was almost as if the A's — those cantankerous critters — were telling Williams he couldn't have won those two world titles without them. The Cleveland Indians defeated the Milwaukee 'Brewers, 3-1 and 9-3, the Boston Red Sox beat, the Baltimore Orioles, 6-4, the Kansas,City Royals downed the Chicago White Sox, 9-0, the Detroit Tigers shaded the New York Yankees, 4-3, and the Texas Rangers topped the Minnesota Twins, 6-2, in other American League games. The Houston Astros blanked the Atlanta Braves,'3-0, and the Montreal Expos routed the Chicago Cubs, 10-4, in the only National League games. Dodgers fact Reds CINCINNATI (UPI) — It's one year later, so what's new? Not much, as far as the Cincinnati Reds and. Los Angeles Dodgers are concerned. * The Reds, unable to defeat Los Angeles so far this season, r open an important four-game homestand against the Dodgers tonight. Anderson says the series is obviously more important to the Reds than to the Dodgers, but he insists a Dodger sweep will not put the Reds out of contention. A sweep of the series would pad the Dodger lead to 11 1-2 games, while a Cincinnati sweep would trim the margin to only 3 1-2 games. The clubs have met five' times this season, with Los Angeles winning all five.. The two clubs—currently playing the best ball in the majors—are .vying for the National League West title in a' race that closely resembles the scene last July. On July 1 a year ago the -Reds trailed the Dodgers by 11 games, but .took a doubleheader from Los Angeles on that date to begin turning the rest of the season around. Cincinnati erased that 11- game deficit in two months and piled up a 6->£ game lead of its own before clinching the division title and leaving the Dodgers out in the cold. One year later the Dodgers again hold a comfortable advantage, this time 7 1-2 games, but Reds' Manager Sparky Anderson has visions of lightning striking twice.
