Boycotting Pro at Wimbledok WIMBLEDON, England (UPI) - The first of the boycotting professionals to show his face at the Wimbledon tennis championships looked at the crowds in the courts and pouring through the gates and bravely predicted the golden flood would not last. "Wimbledon might be able to stand it (without the professionals) for a year or two," said John Ncwcombc, winner of three singles and four doubles titles here. "But not If it goes on." Ncwcombc had not come here to sec how the tournament was doing without the 70 or so members of the Association of Tennis Professionals (ATP) who refused to play because of the suspension of Ndkki Pilic of Yugoslavia. <3a1esburg Register-Mail SPORTS GALESBURG, ILL., WED., JUNE 27, 1973 SEC. 4 PAGE 35 Instead, he threaded his way through the throng to center court to cheer on a friend making her first Wimbledon appearance. Newcombc is coached by Henri Lindo who also coaches pretty Dianne Fromholtz, a brilliant prospect only a few weeks past her 16th birthday and looking even younger. For one set Tuesday, it seemed as though the left- handed Australian blonde would score the first upset of the 87th championships. With a booming service and cross-court drives Miss Fromholtz took the first set, 6-3. Then she found the standard of opposition rising. The tough Virginia Wade began to mix her services and found Miss 'Fromholtz couldn't handle a kick service and tended to overhit when hurried. It was the winning combination and Miss Wade rubbed in the victory by taking the last 14 points in a row. Most 16-year-olds, especially breadwinners, would have been shattered by coming so close to big money prizes. Not Miss Fromholtz. "I came here to get experience by playing against better players and that's what I'm doing," she said. What happened after that first set? "I just seemed to float away," she said. What did she think was her most serious error? "Not keeping the ball in court," she said. There must be something in the air in Albury, New South Wales, that produces great tennis players and the general consensus at Wimbledon was that Miss Fromholtz has all the potential. She was born one block away from the world's present No. I woman tennis player, Margaret Court.

(UPI) - John Reaves, a quarterback for the Philadelphia Eagles, is scheduled to face trial on Aug. 6 on misdemeanor charge of possession of marijuana. Reaves, his brother Robert and Sharon Emerson were arrested May 18 outside a local nightspot by members of the vice squad, who said they saw marijuana cigarette being passed around. Neither of the three defendants was in court Tuesday when their attorneys entered pleas of innocent to the 'Over-Thirty 9 Gang Owns Big Lead in N.L. East Drug Abuse Control Tightened by Rozelle By Vito Stellino UPI Sports Writer NEW YORK (UPI) - Pete Rozelle, commissioner of the image-conscious National Football League, tightened the league's drug control program Tuesday and hinted that even tighter controls may be installed in the future. Rozelle, hoping to avoid a drug scandal that would tarnish the NFL's bright image, announced a program that includes the hiring of a medical consultant, strict reporting procedures for prescription drug use by the teams and disclipinary action for violations. But Rozelle said a decision on such controversial matters as urinalysis would be deferred until the medical consultant—a physician with pharmacological expertise-is hired later this summer. Rozelle made the announcement public after first outlining the program to the 26 owners, who convened their summer meetings Tuesday. Rozelle said drug abuse was "a problem for society as a whole." And the NFL, enjoying booming success, wants to avoid getting its image jarred by a drug scandal. Essentially, the NFL's old program, adopted in March 1971, made the team doctor responsible for all drug use by the club. But now under the new supplemental program, the league is taking responsibility. Each team must file reports to the league on its drug inventory twice a year and must submit copies of all prescription drugs ordered every 30 days investigation for trafffic in illegal drugs. "We are quite confident there is no such current investigation," the commissioner said. At his news conference, Rozelle also added that no firm plans would be taken on expansion until the owner meetings next winter. The owners' day concluded witli the sixth annual banquet of the New York chapter of the Pro Football Writers. Wellington Mara, owner of the Giants, received the long and meritorious award and Don Shula was named "Superman of the Super Bowl." Running backs O. J. Simpson of Buffalo and Larry Brown of Washington were named most valuable players in their National League president Chub Feeney's hopes of two close division races this season may be going up in the smoke of the Los Angeles "No Names" and the Chicago "Over-Thirties." The Dodgers, increased their lead in the National League West to Wi games Tuesday night, when they beat the San Diego Padres, 7-0. It was their third straight win and 11th in their last 12 games. The Cubs also stretched their margin to 6V2 games in the East in the afternoon, with a 51 triumph over the New York Mets. The Cubs have won three straight and four out of five and may be in even a stronger position than the Dodgers because the Mets and Pittsburgh Pirates-nregarded as their strongest challengers- appear to be in deep trouble. The Montreal Expos defeated the Pirates, 10-3, the Cincinnati Reds beat the Houston Astros, 5-1, the Atlanta Braves downed the San Francisco Giants, 9-2, and the St. Louis Cardinals rebounded from a 10-3 loss to top the Philadelphia Phillies, 54, in 11 innings in other NL games. American League scores were Oakland 6 Texas 2, California 6 Kansas City 5, Minnesota 4 Chicago 0, Bal­ timore 6 Milwaukee 0, New York 10 Cleveland 2, and Detroit 4 Boston 1. Don Sutton pitched a two- hitter for his ninth victory and the Dodgers took advantage of four San Diego errors to score three unearned runs. Bill Russell had three hits and Willie Davis, Steve Garvey and Dave Lopes two each in the Dodgers' 11-hit attack. Sutton struck out five and walked one. Burt Hooton raised his record to 8-4 for the Cubs with a four- hitter which handed the Mets' Jerry Koosman his sixth loss against six wins. The Cubs took command of the game with three runs in the third Inning when Jose Cardenal singled home one run and Ron Santo delivered a single which drove in two runs when left-fielder Ed Kranepool misplayed the ball. Bob Bailey drove in four runs with a homer, a two-run double and a bases-filled walk as the Expos ended a four-game losing streak. Ron Hunt's two-run single was the big blow of a four-run second-inning outburst which paved the way for Bill Stoneman to win his second game, Richie Hebner and Richie Zisk homered for the Pirates. Joe Morgan and Dave Concepcion hit two-run doubles in the third and eighth innings, respectively, to help Cincinnati's Ross Grimsley win his seventh game with the help of Clay Carroll's three innings of shutout relief. Don Wilson suffered his eighth loss against five wins despite two hits each by Cesar Cedeno and Tommy Helms.
