AFt Players ri * M * IM Ml9h * • _ mm .m IMJWI w ASSOCIATED PRESS Threaten Club Owners NEW YORK (AP) - Faced with a "no contract, no football" threat from their veteran players, National football League clubowners were to present their side of the eco* ftomic picture at a news confer* ence today, The NFL Players' Association broke off negotiations Thursday after a meeting in which the owners refused to budge on any of the players' economic demands, Dan Shulman, the players' lawyer, said a policy of NFL clubs not siping veterans until the 'current negotiations are over was "in effect, a lockout. "There are certain positions open to us," he said. "We have to go back to the membership and ask if they are ready to take action. If they continue not signing veterans there just won't be any football. "If. they do sign veterans, then we are , in the position of going back to the players and having them tell us what to do. If we get no contracts we have no choice. No football!" Shulman,:listed some of the players' alternatives— not showing up : for training camp, showing up for camp and then leaving, not : playing exhibition games, not playing regular season games. A league spokesman said it was "not true that there is a concerted movement" not to sign veteran players. He said many veterans have already signed, including some of the 16 player representatives who met witii the owners. A player does not have to be under contract until the regular season begins but the club must notify each player by May 1 if they intend to pick up his option — that is, make him their pro- erty for another year.

Maple Leafs Add More Age to Corps TORONTO (AP) - The goal- hungry Toronto Maple Leafs added more age to their already ancient but efficient defense corps Thursday by obtaining veteran All-Star Pierre Pilote from the Chicago Black Hawks in a surprising National Hockey League trade. To obtain the 36-year-old Pilote, Toronto gave up right wing Jim Pappin, 28, who has played with the Leafs for parts of five seasons and was one of the stars of their 1967 Stanley Cup victory. Pilote was named to the first All-Star team five times and to the second team three times in his 13 NHL season. He won the Norris Trophy as the best de- fenseman in the league in 1963, 1964 and 1965. Pilote joins Toronto defense- men Allan Stanley, 42, Tim Horton, 38, and Marcel Pronovost, who will be 38 next month.

The Giants, with their injury list climbing about as fast as their standing in the National League, bolted iritePfirst place' this week despite wounds'to a pair of key players. San Francisco slipped ahead of St. Louis Thursday night with a 5-4 victory over Atlanta, which gave the Giants a 3-1 edge in their series with the Braves despite the absence of slugger Willie McCovey. He was spiked last week and did not come to Atlanta, and third baseman Frank Johnson won't accompany the Giants to Chicago today. Johnson suffered a fractured nose when he was hit by an infield bouncer which took a wild hop, and team officials said he probably would be out three or four weeks. Manager Herman Franks credited Johnson's replacement, veteran Jim Davenport, with the key plays in the triumph. Davenport moved Ron Hunt to third in the seventh Inning with a single to left, starting a two- run uprising. One P/fcA Is Enough to Beat Travs ALBUQUERQUE, N. M.

(AP) The fans who saw B. R, McLendon sink a 20-foot eagle putt to share the first-round lead In the $100,000 Memphis Open Golf Tournament figured he was happy as a lark. But his wife, Joan, knew better. "He didn't say anything to me, but when I saw him go to the practice tee after coming off the 18th, I knew he wasn't happy with his woods and long Irons," the pretty blonde said. McLendon, 22, who won the 1965-66-87 Southeastern Confer ence golf titles, came Into the Memphis Open Thursday virtually unknown to the gallery. Jim Lunn, 23, of Sacramento, Calif., shared the first-round lead with McLendon as both came In with five-under-par 65s Thursday. Lunn finished the round three hours ahead of McLendon, a late starter. McLendon's wife is touring with him, but she didn't see his 67. "I figure this is a day of work," he said. "A doctor doesn't take his wife to the office. But she hasn't seen guys like Arnold Palmer play. I'd like for her to come out arid see him." Only one stroke off the lead going into the second round were R. H. Slkes, Dick Mayer, Jack McGowan and Larry Mowry. Palmer, golfs all-time lead- Ing money winner, shot a 69 in what he called an uninspiring round for Amy's Army to watch.
