Teresa Krueger canned 2» points, 12 from the free-throw line, to lead all scorers. Kathy Yamada totaled 16 points for the Cougars, picking up several assists from the versatile Krueger. After a slow first period that resulted in a 10-5 Cougar edge Coronado installed a half-court steady, giving Coronado its largest lead at 58-35 with 4; 10 left. Tiny Mitchell sub Sue Stocker sparked a bit of a flame for the Marauders in the final minutes as she sank two 25 -footers from the comers of the court but that came a little too late for a comeback attempt. “I thought we played well, said Coronado coach Elliot Longhart. “We made some foolish fouls and didn’t rebound too well in the first quarter, but the girls steadily improved as the game progressed.’’ The Cougars finished with a 7-.5 record. “We tried to have 80 Colltflt B«skttB«ll EAST Assumption 109, Boston U 107, 3 OT Coibv 84, Bowdoin 82 Dowlino Col 71, Dominican, N.Y. 52 Jersav Citv 79, Trenton 61 LeMovne 80, Alfred 67 Providence 89, Villanova 81 Oulnnipiac 90, American Int 64 Rutgers 85, St. Bonaventure 80 Rutgers-Camden 96, St.Thomas Aqulnav rone trap that '¡^ everybody into the to turn over the ball ^oid. ‘T think "Trueger and Yamada com-we ^cceeded in domg just bined for all 21 second-quarter'that.

The meeting had been called to examine the status of the plan in view of the absence of funding since 1974. The Chicago Sun-Times quoted NFLPA executive direc G.T. Want Ads Get Results. Try One.

The threat came as Monday’s meeting of the NFL retirement ing he was planning a suit that would ask $10,000 in damages for each of the NFL’s 1,118 players, alleging violation of antitrust laws in the league’s standard player contracts. The Sun-Times reported Garvey had decided on the suit following a favorable court ruling in the John Mackey case and expected victory in the Joe Kapp case. However, Garvey said: “There are no immediate plans to take any legal action. We’re not filing any lawsuits.’’ NFL Commissioner Pete Rozelle, chairman of the retirement board, received a letter signed by Buffalo Bills owner Ralph Wilson in which the clubs questioned whether the pension plan might have to be scrapped. “In view of the report published this morning that the NFLPA is considering filing an $11.1 million lawsuit against NFL clubs, the club members of the retirement board see no alternative to cancellation of the board meeting scheduled for this afternoon,’’ Wilson’s letter read. “The club retirement board members must now consult with the other NFL presidents as to the clubs’ position on ter- mination of the pension plan, it said. Besides Wilson, club representatives to the retirement board are Rankin Smith of the Atlanta Falcons, Wellington Mara of the New York Giants and Art Modell of the Cleveland Browns. The NFLPA has a meeting scheduled for Friday in Washington. “These are the type of questions the board of representatives will take up during the meeting, not so much damages but how to follow up on the Mackey case.’’ There have been no contributions made to the NFL pension plan for the past two years since the expiration of the last collective bargaining agreement between the players and owners. Under terms of the pension I plan, there is a legal set of priorities to determine distribution of benefits sliould the plan be jtemiinated. First priority, ¡would go to those already re- (ceiving benefits. The next; i would be those individuals vest-1 ed in the plan but not yet draw -1 ing benefits. The third group, | j and lowest on the priority list, | I would be those not yet vested I in the plan. “There is no question that the resources of the plan are suf-i ficient to meet the needs of the i first group,’’ said a spokesman for the NFL Management Coun- 'dl. the owners’ negotiating arm. “Whether the needs of the second group could be met is problematical. There definitely are not sufficient assets to take care of the third group.’’ Husson Col 100.
