Tuesday, April 2,1968 Two Tennis Stars Hove Turned Pro By JACK STEVENSON Associated Press Sports Writer INGLE WOOD, Calif, (Ap) "I don't think people look on a sport these days unless money is involved," says Billie Jean King, the tennis queen who could tnake $70,000 playing the game during the next year, Mrs. King, Ann Haydon Jones of England, Francoise Durr of France and little Rosemary Casals of San Francisco signed contracts Monday to play with the new National Tennis League. Also joining the pros was Australian Roy Emerson who could earn up to $100,000 for each of the next two years. Contracts for the five were announced by George MacCall, former United States Davis Cup captain who is now president of the pro group. Five players previously under contract are Rod Laver, Ken Rosewall and' Fred Stolle, all of Australia, Andres Gimeno of ^ Spain and former U.S. champion 'Pancho Gonzales. The NTL makes its United States debut in a tournament at the Forum here, April 7, 9 and 10 with much of the interest centered on the gals.

She also looks forward to open tournaments such as those in England this year ... at Bournemouth later this month and at Wimbledon in July. MacCall did not divulge the exact money involved in the contracts and the earnings ultimately will reflect how the players do in the tournaments. He did say Mrs. King was guaranteed between $40,000 and $50,000 with the opportunity to earn up to $70,000. The other women are expected to earn in the $25,000 vicinity and Emerson, with a guarantee of about $75,000, could earn up to $100,000 for each year of his two- year pact.

(AP) — Jack Kralick, former American League pitcher, says he lias filed retirement papers from baseball and is selling insurance for North American Life Assurance Co. of Toronto. Kralick said, "I am definitely through with baseball and definitely committed to the insurance business." He once pitched a no-hit, no- run game wliile with the Minnesota Twins, allowing jus,t one base on balls that cost him a perfect game, it was against Kansas City Aug. 2,1962. The next year Kralick was Mailer's New World VERO BEACH, Fla.-(NEA)—Perspective is important to Tom Haller. For seven years he looked out from behind a mask stenciled with the brand of the San Francisco Giants. Now it's the Los Angeles Dodgers and a whole new world. They got him in a trade this past winter, which didn't exactly surprise Tom. "A ballplayer isn't a dummy," says the tall teacher who received his bachelor of science degree from Illinois after he was already in professional baseball. "He sees and analyzes the situation. He also reads the papers and gets the drift. "The Giants had an excess number of catchers. I was the oldest of the bunch, at 31.

Chief among the shadows: Lyndon B. Johnson, the President whose announcement that he will not run again turned Wisconsin and Democratic politics from a battleground into a maze. Republicans and Democrats, even men in the McCarthy camp, said the President undoubtedly would get more votes in Wisconsin than he would have had he remained in the presidential race. Johnson's name remains on the ballot. McCarthy said he thought most Wisconsin voters had their minds made up and wouldn't Jim Perry. The Indians sold Kralick to the New York Mets last season and the southpaw wound up his career in the Mets' farm system. two dissenters who have suddenly become the top contenders.

Tom wasn't there as a tourist. His perspective on baseball also involves the view from the top—statesmanship. Tom is the officially designated player representative of the National League (his counterpart for the American League is Steve Hamilton, the gray-haired lefthander of the New York Yankees). And every night Tom Haller sleeps better knowing that Marvin Miller is pitching the ball for the players. Marvin Miller is the pencil-mtistached labor expert who became executive secretary of the baseball players association a couple of years ago at $50.000 a year. "The biggest step forward we ever made," says Haller, "It creates a real good atmosphere because it takes the pressure off the player representatives as far as talking grievances with the owners. If wo run into a sticky problem, we call in Marvin." At. the meetings, the players effected a 30-point pact with the owners that included such items as a $10,000 minimum salary, a raise in meal money from $8 to $12 and a hike in "Murphy" money (for incidentals during spring exercises) from $25 to $40. "The experience of negotiating at that level," notes Tom, "has given me a little more insight into baseball." It has also helped him rationalize the trade that sent him from the Giants, the only organization he was in for 11 years in professional baseball, to the Dodgers. "This is also a good .experience for me," Jie says. "I'd., like to manage in the 'majors some day. You'll'never find me coaching because I couldn't afford the drop in salary. And by going to another club, you get around and see other personalities of baseball." Haller, a .250 hitter who specialized in hitting the long ball for the Giants, has also been able to take a more objective view of his old club now that he's not a part of it. Packed with stars like Willie Mays, Willie McCovey, Orlando Cepeda, Jim Ray Hart, with pitchers like Juan Marichal, Gaylord Perry and Mike McCormick. the Giants have been one of the most frustrating teams in baseball. They have finished second in the National League each of the last three years. "The Giants," analyzes Tom, "beat themselves too many times on defense. And I never could understand why, with Candlestick Park favoring a lefthand power hitter, they only had one (McCovey) besides myself." By implication also, the Giants didn't exactly pull together all the time. "Baseball," says Tom, "is a team effort. It's very important to get a winning type of thinking. The little skills make the difference. If there's a man on second and nobody out, the hitter who's not a team ballplayer swings immediately for the RBI. The team ballplayer sacrifices two strikes trying to get the guy (the runner) over to third." And how do the Dodgers, his present employers, strike him? "In this camp, we stress more fundamentals." Tom Haller, who has never been on a second division club, is already on his way to sounding like a manager.

Victor Hhcru aUit be Directors of Agencies Told of Budget Cut FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) — Steve Cummings of Fayetteville, president of the Arkansas Association of Community Action Agency Directors, said Monday that several directors had been advised of budget reductions and that plans were under \s r ay to try to halt reductions. Cummings said some of the 23 local community action agency directors had been advised of reductions as high as 30 per cent. Cummings said he and other group officers planned to meet with Office of Economic Opportunity and state Labor Department officials to protest further reductions.
