Fate of Ail-Star Game Known Tonight By The Associated Press As the warring sides in the pro football strike continued their "Alphonse and Gaston" routine today, the fate of the 1974 College All-Star Game hung in the balance. Management said it was ready to meet, but.. . The striking football players union said it was ready to meet, but... And Chicago Tribune Charities, sponsor of the College All- Star Game, said it would hold a news conference tonight—9 p.m., EDT—to announce the fate of the 1974 contest. An ultimatum had been issued Monday by the agency of the Chicago newspaper giving both sides in the dispute 48 hours to make ironclad assurances that the July 26 All-Star Game would be played without interference. The old "Alphonse and Gaston" routine, you will recall, is "After you." "No you first." And so on. That is exactly how the warring sides sounded in exchanges in the early morning hours today. The National Football League Management Council, bargaining agency of the 26 club owners of the NFL, repeated that it was ready to resume negotiations and claimed that the NFL Players Association, which went on strike July 1, was stalling. The NFLPA said, in effect, the opposite. The union wants management to come to the bargaining table wihh 63 counterproposals, in writing. to the 63 demands the union made when talks broke off some 10 days before the strike started. Management says it wants to talk about it. "There will not be any meeting between the owners and the players because Jim Scearce, the federal mediator, said he couldn't assure any kind of meeting except on Friday, so there won't be a meeting," Ed Garvey, the NFLPA executive director, told The Associated Press in Washington early today. In New York, John Thompson, executive director of the owners' bargaining unit, countered: "It is totally and grossly unfair when Garvey says we won't meet until Friday. "If there is not going to be a meeting between the owners and the players, it only confirms the intent of Ed Garvey and the union to destroy the All-Star Game," Thompson added. Neither side would officially say what the significance of Friday had to do with the resumption of talks, but it was learned that management negotiators had told Scearce on Monday that labor lawyer Theodore Kheel, counsel for the NFLMC, had long ago scheduled a mid-week trip, not connected with the strike, to California. NFLMC sources said Kheel would have canceled his trip if it appeared that the two sides would start talking again, but he went ahead with his plans when the federal mediator couldn't get Garvey to agree to new negotiations. The union's 63 demands include the so-called "freedom issues," which call for players to have the right to negotiate with any team they wish and to veto trades, as well as an end to the reserve and waiver clauses and drastic curbs on the disciplinary powers of coaches, owners and the league commissioner to impose fines. "We will not'consider eliminations, but we will consider modifications," repeated Thompson early today. But Thompson wouldn't suggest any modifications. And the union says it is management's time to make a counterproposal. In other developments Tuesday: —NFL Commissioner Pete Rozelle told The Associated Press that granting total free- Carroll Daily Times Herald dom to the players from binding contracts would mean that a few rich teams would dominate the league, some poorer teams would eventually go out of business, over-all revenues would drop and fan interest would decline. —Officials of the Pro Football Hall of Fame at Canton, Ohio, said the second scheduled NFL exhibition, the July 27 game between St. Louis and Buffalo, would not be played if the players' strike halts preseason training for rookies. Except for the College All-Stars, who stopped practicing until negotiations resumed, rookie drills are under way in all training camps that have opened. —The Los Angeles Times said this year's charity exhibi- tion game it is to sponsor, the Los Angeles Rams vs. the Cleveland Browns on Aug. 2, would be played "players' strike or no." Owner Carroll Rosenbloom of the Rams told the Times: "As far as we are concerned, we intend to play the game. As a matter of fact, we may play with the same team with which we will play all season long." -Pickets from the NFLPA marched near the eight NFL camps which were open by Tuesday. —And Johnny Unitas, the veteran quarterback of the San Diego Chargers, said he would report to camp as scheduled on Friday. Yanks Starting to Score Some Runs Wednesday, July 10,1974 Page 11 By The Associated Press Suddenly the runs are coming for the New York Yankees. The Yankees, who scored only 19 runs in 11 games a while ago, have erupted for 45 in their last five starts, including, Tuesday night's 8-2 pounding of the Kansas City Royals. Manager Bill Virdon said he doesn't know why, but added, "Whatever it is, I'd keep doing it. "But really, this is closer to what we should be doing,'' Virdon said. "They say everything evens up ... I'd ELK'S CLUB Thursday July 11 Stag Night — Steaks or Chicken Dinners to order plus our Salad Bar. settle for leveling off—nine or 10 hits a game, plus some runs."

Bibby, the Texas Rangers' hard-throwing young right- hander, fired a six-hitter but it wasn't good enough as Tiant allowed just four hits in pitching the Red Sox to victory. Brewers 6, White Sox 5 Big George Scott drove in four runs for the Brewers, finally winning the game with his ninth home run of the season leading off the ninth inning. Earlier, Scott three times had driven home rookie Robin Yount. Jorge Orta belted a three-run homer for the White Sox.

The Tigers, who suffered their fourth consecutive loss, had tied the score with two out in the ninth on Bill Freehan's RBI single. Orioles 3, Angels 1 Boog Powell drove in two runs and Mike Cuellar and Bob Reynolds combined on a four-hitter for the Orioles, who moved into a flat-footed tie with Cleveland for first place in the AL East. It was the fourth consecutive victory and seventh in eight games for the Orioles. The Angels have lost 10 in a row, including nine since Dick Williams took over as manager. A's 7, Indians 0 Jim "Catfish" Hunter spun a three-hitter for his second successive shutout, raising his season's record to 12-8 and boosting the first-place A's lead over Kansas City in the AL West to 4'/2 games. Joe Rudi drove in three runs and Reggie Jackson two for Oakland. [Sports Glances!

Q: Mike Marshall (a) did, (b) did not, pitch in the Los Angeles Dodgers' 8-4 triumph over the Philadelphia Phillies Tuesday night. Even the class dunce knows there's only one answer to that. Of course Marshall pitched ... for the 58th time this season. But don't get the idea the Dodgers' relief ace is overworked. "He had a day of rest," explained Manager Walter Alston.

Astros 5, Cardinals 2 Lee May hammered two home runs and Dave Roberts fired a six-hitter as Houston handed St. Louis its fourth consecutive setback. The Cardinals staked John Curtis to a 2-0 lead in the first two innings, but May smashed his first homer in the bottom of the second and Curtis was chased in the fourth when the Astros scored twice more. Expos 5, Giants 4 Tim Foli's two-run single capped a four-run third inning for Montreal and Mike Jorgensen homered in the fifth for what proved to be the winning run. | WHITEWALL 5 WAYS TO CHARGE BUY NOW-S^WE SAVE *6.2O Size A78-13 Whitewall plus $1.80 F.E.T, and tire off your car. 39 Size G7B-14 SAVE $9.15 Whitewall plus $2.67 F.E.T. and tire off your car.
