(UPI) - The folks back home in Beaumont, Tex., were a little incredulous when they got the call from Susie McAllister Sunday. But Miss McAllister wasn't insulted. After four years on the LPGA tour, she also was beginning to wonder if she'd always be the bridesmaid and never the bride. But hard, steady play -and a refusal to let her caddy tell her her position until the 18th hole -led her tether first tour victory by one stroke in the 2nd annual $40,000 Wheeling LPGA Classic on the Speidel Golf Course at nearby Oglebay Park. Her four-under-par, 72-70-70 -212 total earned her $5,700. Jan Ferraris of Palm Springs, Calif, took home $4,170 for her three-under-par second place finish. Miss McAllister broke the news of her win to her family very gently. "I called home like I usually do and my aunt said, with not too much emotion, 'How'd you do?.' " Miss McAllister recounted. "I said, 'Ah, well, I won,' and they couldn't believe it. They're so used to my telling them what happened because I've been so close that they really couldn't believe that I'd won." Miss McAllister said she had beert close to taking it all four or five times this year, but something always happened to knock her out. So this tournament, apparently afraid fif jinxing herself, she ordered her caddy not to tell her how she was doing. She entered the final round three strokes behind Karolyn Kertzman, who had l^d throughout the tourney. Miss McAllister's caddy managed to keep quiet when Miss Kertzman four- putted for a double bogey six on the 12th hole and into an eventual-third Results: Feature-Thruman, Strube, Greenlee; semifeature- Terry Pflffer, T.

Eddy, a pitcher, has been accepted to do undergraduate work at Yale University. Ashe, Billie Jean Atop World Tennis linois' deer hunters apparently aren't going to have to become scientific color analysts after all. A House-Senate conference committee recommended Thursday that the House abandon an amendment which would have required that deer hunters' clothing used starting next year be: "A solid hunter-orange color, which shall mean fluorescent orange "color with a dominant wave length between 595 and 605 nanometers, an excitation purity of not less than 85 per cent and a luminance factor of not less than 40 per cent." Instead, the conference committee recommended that the law require only "a solid and vivid hunter blaze-orange color." WIMBLEDON (UPI) - Arthur Ashe, playing one of the most intelligent tennis matches'ever seen in the 99-year history Of Wimbledon, and Billie Jean King, turning her final major singles competition into an emotional triumph, ruled today as the top players of the game. •*•;• Ashe, in scoring his 6-1, 6-1, 5-7, 6-4 victory over Jimmy Connors on Saturday, ended, at least for the time being, Connors' total domination of the men's scene. Ms. King captured her sixth Wimble- d6n singles crown with an astonishingly easy 6-0, 6-1 rout Friday of former queen Evonne Goolagong Cawley. Connors, the defending champion and conqueror of Rod Laver and John Newcombe in the Las Vegas shootouts, had been an out favorite to retain his crown, but Ashe, who in a. dozen years had never come so far in the world's foremost tennis event, took command at the outset and wrapped up the match in two hours and four* minutes. There is no love lost between the 22- year-old flamboyant Connors and the rather staid, quiet American black. Multimillion-dollar lawsuits are in litigation between the two, based on Connors' charges of restraint of trade and libel. When the match was over, with the capacity throng delighted at Ashe's victory, the two men shook hands 'We Lease All Makes Of Cars and Trucks!"

Ashe, in his exuberance after the award ceremonies, made a remark which he may regret at a later date, for Connors has a long memory. J'l think he choked," said-Ashe. When thfe comment was relayed to Jimmy, he,bridled, then snapped, "I do not choke, my friend. I came here with my head high, and I leave with my head high and I'll be back with my head high." Ashe had planned, his match well, and he blunted the power of Connors' game with accurate service and deadly volleying. Wimbledon was not a happy place for Connors' former girlfriend either. Chris Evert, defending her tiara, fell in a tremendous match to Billie Jean in the semis, where Ms. King came back from 0-3 and 15-40 in the final set to win, 2-6, 6-2, 6-3. And Wimbledon also marked the second time Miss Evert had to announce that her engagement to Connors was over. place finish, moving'Miss'McAllister) into, a tie with Miss'Ferraris.
