Action in the 32-team, double-elimination tournament continues through Aug. 21, with the Braves' next game scheduled for Thursday or Friday. The Braves earned the right to play in this tournament by winning the West Coast League tournament last month in Redlands. The Orange County A's, runnersup in that tourney, were eliminated from the NBC tourney Tuesday. The winner of the regional goes on to Williams-port, Pa., for the Little League World Series. The 1900 Western champion, Kirkland LL of Kirkland, Wash., will not be on hand to defend its title. Most teams are expected to arrive at LL headquarters here Friday.

J katic castator Bernardino's talented tennis players, is longer Carol Pat Christian. As of April 16, Miss Christian became Mrs. Houtchens. After completing her second year on the women's tennis team at Cal State Fullerton, Houtchens won a summer position as assistant pro to Reese Shepard at the Sundance Swim and Tennis Club in Teton Village, Wy. "I also lifeguard part time, clean the pool and do whatever else needs doing," said Houtchens by phone. "This a beautiful place to spend the summer. I'd love to stay here a year or two." However, before seriously considering living in Wyoming, Houtchens, who commutes to Fullerton from San Bernardino, intends to finish out her college career. Fullerton's top player has two more years of eligibility. When asked how her team fared last season, Houtchens laughed. "We finished next to the last in our league. But our league is so tough. We play USC, UCLA, Arizona State, Arizona University, San Diego State and Long Beach. "I guess my best personal win last year was when we played Berkeley and beat their top player." Houtchens is also playing competitive tennis this summer. She captured the women's single title of the Jackson Hole Open. Then with her friend, Gayle Wager, she entered the men's doubles of the Jackson Hole Closed Tennis Tournament. "Gayle and I beat the head pro (Shepard) and his partner in the first round," said Houtchens. "That tickled me. But we lost in the semifinals. In the same tournament I won the mixed doubles with Gayle's husband, Ralph." The past week, Houtchens has had a visitor from home, Sheri Shellhammer. Shellhammer, who also plays for Fullerton, was Houtchens' teammate at Pacific High School. Jim Verdieck, the University of Redlands builder of championship men's tennis teams, will join Arthur Ashe, Stan Smith, Vic Braden and Dennis Van der Meer, on the teaching staff of the USTA 11th National Tennis Teachers Conference Sept. 24 in New York City. Verdieck will be instructing other coaches, pros and tennis instructors on the fine art of college coaching, short-and long-range planning, building a solid base, ground strokes for the beginners and steps in developing a reaction volley. Not bad for a fellow who started out as a football player.

Lansdorp, Austin's former instructor, has worked with 11-year-old Rehe of Highland for three years and believes his young charge is a "very talented little girl." "Tracy, at that stage, had a little better concentration but Steffi shows more athletic ability and variety," Lansdorp said. It appears Lansdorp's view is an accurate one. Last Saturday, Rehe captured her third girls 12 singles title in six weeks, defeating Niurka Sodupe of Miami in the finals of the USTA Girls 12 Championship in Wellington, Fla. The victory, Steffi's finest to date, was made even more impressive by the fact she defeated Sodupe on clay, a surface on which Steffi usually does not have as much success as hardcourts. Rehe began her successful summer by capturing the girls 12-and-under singles title of the 79th annual Southern California Junior Sectional Tennis Tournament on June 28. Then July 11, she defeated Sodupe in the finals of the USTA Girls 12 National Hardcourt. Between her hardcourt and USTA Girls 12 Championship appearances, Rehe lost to Sodupe, a veteran clay player, in the semifinals of the USTA Clay Court Championships at Delray Beach, Fla. "It was so hot there. Steffi became violently ill the night before the match," explained Barbel Rehe, Steffi's mother. "We even had the doctor come see her that night." After the defeat, Steffi, who plays most of her tennis on hardcourts, remained in Florida to practice on clay, readying herself for the USTA championship. Perhaps looking at her earlier loss to Sodupe on clay, the tournament officials gave the young Miami native top seeding. "It was not an easy win for Steffi," said Mrs. Rehe. "It was so tough for her to do. Steffi is a good player, I know, but there were so many factors involved: the vibrations, the expectations. "The Florida papers made so much hoopla about the other girl. It could have psyched out Steffi. But she remained cool and collected. She was exquisite." According to Lansdorp, Steffi should now receive top national ranking in girls 12s. "It was sort of a toss up between Steffi and Sodupe," said Lansdorp. "But she's beaten Sodupe twice now to Sodupe's one win over her. She's beat everybody she had to (to get top ranking)." Carol Pat Christian, another of San Yucaipa girl wins bronze at Games Joyce Cook of Yucaipa captured a bronze medal in the high jump at the XIV World Games for the Deaf held July 23-Aug. 2 in Cologne, Germany. Cook's jump of Meet, 4y4-inches tied the high mark of the gold and silver medalists, both from the Soviet Union. The medals were awarded according to the number of attempts. Last summer in Fulton, Mo., Cook, a track star for the California School for the Deaf in Riverside, cleared 5-5ft, breaking a record set by a girl from the Soviet Union in 1977. Cook trained for three weeks this summer in North Carolina before flying to Germany for the competition. The 18-year-old track star leaves Friday for Big Springs, Texas, where she'll begin her freshman year at a newly opened college for the deaf. a Own Your Own X ( BuslnM Show Vj II Ate you looking lor buskxu Ol your own? fan 10 attend tht mtrketo&ce of f BUSINESS OPPORTUNITIES 1 H Fftncntaaa Oiitnbutoftftiot B H Full and part timopoonunitws - B"sssr. -wast I Full and oat lint opfxxlunitm MvMtmtnlt trom ISO 10 1100.000 no is I j FRONT Raptaoa Bom $9MS Stzt F78 is, Btaetwtll, plus l2 rae rema WHITEWALLS JUST $1.70 MORE P15580R13 whitewall, plus $1.52 trade needed.
