But Billincham. who has been very ineffective in his last three appearances, thinks he found the reason for giving up four hits, two walks and five joins (one his own) on only IT IPitcties since June 4 before lie, could get his first out. "(Don) Drysdale told me he thought I was opening up in my delivery too sarin," Blllingham told the Independent Star-News before '- M 0 ti d a y !s scheduled game' with Philadelphia was rained out.

"I have been completing my follow-through while my arm was stilt completine the wind- up," he continued. "The result was I had nothing on the ball. "There are two thines I can do to compensate: first I could hesitate when I bring my leg- up to get a smooth follow-through, 'second, I could bring my leg up mgner wlien I kick, ifils would keep my rythm anil also' assure a fioa louow-tnrougn. "I'll try both methods in the jnexr. couple of days and then decide which is better for my ifyle ol pitching," tie said, add ing: 11 opening up too soon isn't the reason, I'll just have to try somKlin:,- else." Since the Dodgers prepared for tonight's opener of a three- gariie series with Ihe Pirates here, it figures thai BiUingham will, at one time or anntliw, get a chance to make the important test.

POLK Associated Press Sports Writer WASHINGTON (AP) - Gary Beban, All-America quartei back from UCLA, signed his second no-cut contract Monday.

The Washington Redskins paid a reported $200,000 to sign Beban and plainly expect a long-lasting NFL career for him even though nobody took . the Heismah Trophy winner in the first round Df the pro football draft last winter.

Beban will be playing behind jveteran Sonny Jurgensen, who (broke NFL passing records last Ifall but will be 31 three weeks ibefore the coming season opens. Beban has a reputation as a rollout passer in contrast to the pros' dropback style. But he says he is not and reports he I threw sit per cent of his college ipasses from a set stance. Behan said, "The only difference between the UCLA dropback and the pros is the angle you take leaving the center. " KeflsRins -Coach Utto Graham, suDerb pro quarterback in his long career with Cleveland, praised Beban: "He's intelligent. H-j's got all the physical attributes. He can I IthrDW and he can run, which many quarterbacks can't do, Above all, the most important thing in my way ol thinking. he's a winner." .Beban's attorney, Ailhur Morse nf Chicago, compared Beban's contract as favorable to the ones he negotiated for Chi- Icago linebacker Dick Butkus and Green Bay fuliback Jim Grabowski.

Toros Sued for ; $3.4 Million BALTIMORE (AP) - Shimon Cohen, an Israeli soccer player, filed suit in U.S. District Court Monday seeking ' $3.4 million damages from the Baldmore Bays and San Diego Toros of the North American Soccer League. The suit charges slander, breach of contract and future prospects and disparagement of 'professional ability; CAL STATE PCAA ENTRY BEING PROBED oi PtCKARB pros Outweigh Com Cal State Moving Up? THERE ARE STILL several mpjor hurdles to be crossed, but things' look bright for the chances ol Cal State L.A.'s breaking inlo Hie new Pacific Coast Athletic Association. With athletic director Scotty Deeds currently out of town for the NCAA college division tennis championships and tennis meetings In San Antonio, associate AD Held Gunnell has taken on the chores ol looking into the pros and cons of the new league, including, attending last week's meeting hi which- the fledgling conference took Its first Toots-"strlctly as a fact-finding venture." , "The sUtlcllo director of the schools, involved had held a previous mcetliij and were asked to return to Ibeir schooh and bring back their respective decisions last week," Gaimeli explained Mondayi "San Diego State, Fresno State and Cal Stale Long it Beach from our conference were able to make Affirmative ' 1 decisions, along with UC Santa Barbara and San Jose State, But OOP, WHICH WILL PROBABLY JOIN THE CONFERENCE, AND OUR SCHOOL WERE NOT ABLE TO MAKE A COMMITMENT Ids! week." BUT THE PROS of participation in the PCAA greatly outweigh tlie cons, from where we sit. "Our situation," said Guhnell. "is that we have to present the facts to (he athletic board (three student members, three from faculty), the student board, the academic senate and the president of the school (Dr. John A. Greenlee). "The decision they have to make is whether to stay with Hie CCAA as it now stands, or accelerate our athletic program in order to join the TACC. I think the primary question is one of finances. And we are looking Inlo a)l aspects of the financial situation." Gunnel explains that the expenses incurred in a stepped up sports program will necessarily be greater than those in the "old" CCAA, "but I want to emphasize that we're not going 'big time.' And we have no thoughts about trying to get Increased student fees to support the program, "In reality, we. (the athletic department) see little, difference In Ihe outlay between the CCAA as ft Is now set up and the sew cenJerence. And the possibility of income from the PCAA Is mock greater, as we tee It. With San Dclga State, Cal State Long Bench and Fresne State (the three biggest drawing cards In the league) pulling out, ve envision very little Income potential to .: the CCAA, "In Ihe PCAA there. Is the possibility of acMsvliij a major rlassitication In football, and there is also a very real possibility the Junior Rose Bowl will be tied in with the new conference. In addition, the guarantee structure Is more Inviting ihRn in the CCAA, If only from the standpoint of bis--jer gates," In early meetings, Gunncll says the PCAA was kicking around the possibilities of a MISOO to COM minimum guarantee, or a 60-40 split between the home and Visiting teams, He '' also points to the very lucrative fact that major college classification by the NCAA would bring memhpr schools a cut 6f the national football TV package, amounting to something in the neighborhood of $25,000 a year. (And that, as they say. is one of the better neighborhoods.) - , Gunnell, who presented the facts of tlie plan to Dr. Greenlee and other campus leaders last week, said he. saw little in the way of response, "Tliere was really no viewpoint taken at our meetings," he explained. "Wc were just trying to get at the facts. The main question, 1 think, was, How do we finance it? Mr. Deeds will be back in town afler Thursday, and he will be getting together with all concerned at that, time." Have lo Make Solid Ca&e ONCE AGAIN SPEAKING for the athletic department, Gunnell said, "Naturally we xvould like to upgrade our program, and we feel that joining the PCAA would be a step in that direction. But we have to make a pretty solid case before we can expect a decision cither way. And, of course, the athletic program hiss to fit Into the overall educational program of tlte school." But Gunnell has some pretty convincing argunento . In law of totoltuj up with th PCAA, the least of which Is not the fact that Ike CCAA-wtth or without Cal State L.A. tojolng In he a, considerably weakened leagie In years to come, If IL survives. In explaining the grante-tn-nld program tentatively outlined for the Pacific Coasf AA, Gunnell said the grand limit has been set at 60 for foolball and 20 for basketball. The CCAA, in a move aimed at trying to Induce the maverick schools to return to tho fold, last month upped Its limits to 65 for football and 30 for basketball, But. nf coarse, these limits could be reduced, since the move did not nerve 1f intended purpose. But Gunnell hit the nail on the head when he quoted Fresno State-AD Cecil Coleman. "We could" spend as much on our program at Fresno State next year In tlie CCAA as we will in future-years iu the PCAA, but the financial return is just not there." A decision may not be forthcoming before this fall, when all (he involved student and faculty groups will be more readily available for policy-making meetings, but the future of 'the Diablos would seem to lie in the PCAA. ' We would be surprised if the CSLA powers shnuld decide otherwise. It would be a great step forward in athletics. At this point, staying In the CCAA looks like a giant backward stride. A LATE SUNDAY news Item via the AP came as some, thing of a shock to local fight tans. It- seems that Sho Saljyo, the Japanese "Blazer'' who upset WBA featherweight champ Raul Rojas a couple of weeks ago In a non-title match, lias rejected an Olympic offer for a summer rematch, with the championship belt at stake, It's a matter of finances, say our sources, Saijyo, who received about $7900 for his win June 6, is reportedly holding ourtnr a 1115,000 guarantee in the title bout. It'a entirely pwlfal the Qtymplo otter to Saljyo to lea . . than he deserves-the figures, naturally, aren't avail-ahle-bot off his decisive victory to their first meeting, yon would almost think he wooH be happy to accept the minimum, just tor the chance to wear the bell. And his chances are good, even If Rojas did say he tolled to train properly tor their Unit ftghl. , . hv case Saijyo doesn't know it, boxing history la full of situations similar to this one, Bob Foster's backers had to fnit up a 1100,000 guarantee lo 8t light heavyweight champ Dick Tiger Into the ring. And ihey lost nearly $30,000 on that fight.. But they'll not losing any sleep over It. the titla'n worth considerably more. '''.:.
