The poll asks fans to choose between retaining the Sox or seeing them leave town and be replaced by the A's. Both clubs are in the American League Western Division. The Chicago Tribune, conducting the poll, reported Monday that first returns show fans favor the Sox, even though they are in third place 16 games behind the A's and have spent much of the season in last place. The poll began last week after a Tribune story reported there was a good chance the Sox, plagued by dwindling attendance, would move to Seattle, Wash., and the A's would suoplant them in Chicago. The A's are owned by Chicago businessman Charles 0. Finley. Under terms of an earlier arrangement, the league is obligated to provide Seattle with a team for the 1976 season. The A'S compete with the San Francisco Giants for customers, and the competition has hurt both clubs, though more so the Giants.

Detroit starter Mickey Lolich, 10-11, who has now lost his last six starts despite five being complete games, got a life in the fifth when the Tigers broke loose for three runs, including a run-scoring double by Art James and Ben Oglivie's tworun single.

Nickiaus remained No. 1 with earnings of $203,599, but text two names on the list are newcomers to such a lofty ranking. Hale Irwin and Tom Weiskopf both moved ahead of the the previous runner-up, Johnny Miller, with big pay days from the Westchester. Irwin, with his sixth place finish, boosted his earnings to $188,352 while Weiskopf's third place hiked his winnings to $177,315. Miller, who placed a dismal 49th at Westchester, dropped to fourth with $183,885. Fourth place is the lowest Miller has occupied on the money list since 1973. Gene Littler, who edged Julius Boros in a sudden death playoff to capture the Westchester, moved into fifth place with $161.628. Has Gunter Survives First Round Save-Brown 11 (Fteehan) T-227 A-11240 HBP by Ectertleyl INDIANAPOLIS (UPI) - Five-time champion Nancy Richey Gunter, making her first appearance in the U. S. National Open Clay Courts tennis tournament in five years, survived a tough first-round match Monday to highlight the opening round at the Indianapolis Raquet Club. Seeded f o u r t h , Mrs. Gunter, of San Angelo, Tex., defeated Laurie Rowley, Fort Lauderdale, Fla., 3-6, 6-1,7-6. Mrs. Gunter said the Seahawks Drowning SEATTLE (UPI) -- The Seattle Seahawks, a new entry in the National Football League, have no coach, no players, and haven't even pumped up their first football but ticket manager Gordy Green is already up to his ears in work. "I've never encountered anything like this in my life," says Green. "It's almost beyond my comprehension and I've worked under pressure situations during the past 15 or 16 years." What has Green gasping is the response for tickets for the Seahawks, who, with Tampa, won't even make their bow in the NFL until 1976. The mailman stopped around the first day ticket applications were accepted and dumped between 3,000 and 4,000 letters onto Green's desk. The season ticket requests averaged out to about six per letter or give or take about 20,000 applications on the very first day. With each ticket application was a $25 check as a down payment for tickets for a team which as yet has no schedule and slim chances for success in its inaugural year in the NFL. A second deposit is due for each application on Nov. 1 and the balance, to be determined later on the price charged, will be due next Feb. 1.

Len Dawson is attending a professional football camp without knowing his status He is trying to he the No 1 quarterback for the Kansas City Chiefs With Hank Strain as coach, Dawson always knew that if he was healthy he was No. 1 With the new regime of Paul Wiggin.

Dawson told Wiggin he understood his problem the day he replaced Stram Dawson recalls. "1 (old him, 'I know you've got a problem To build a team around a 40-year-old quarterback is riot what 1 would do if it was me '" So Dawson worked out and waited while Wiggin assembled his staff Then he went back to the new coach "1 wanted to make sure they really wanted me to come back I wanted to be sure it wasn't a token thing 1 didn't want to be put in the middle to be used "But Paul assured me thev definitely did want me He was honest He said he my role would be as a back-up or a reliever I can understand that " Dawson. however, is not preparing himself for a utility role Entering his l"th professional season and his 13th with the Chiefs, he expects to be the starter again Wiggin. at this point, is uncertain Whatever his decision is, he admits it be the biggest one he makes this season Trying to beat out Dawson are Mike Livingston.
