Darlene Hard WIMBLEDON (AP)—It was al• most as if a cry for help had gone up from Wimbledon's ivy- covered center court Chubby Darlene Hard had crashed in the singles and U.S tennis prestige had slumped to an all-time low. The 25,OOT>strong crowd left the •ground asking where are the .' great Americans of yesterday? Where indeed? Well, one was on the sidelines. Hustling Miss Hard through a "forest of sympathetic well wish- "ers, Althea Gibson turned aside to drop a bint that Uncle Sam will be back with murder in his heart next year. "If the Wimbledon championship is thrown open to professionals," said tiie two-times holder of the women's title, "I shall certainly consider competing myself." „ How did the 32-year-old Miss Gibson figure she'd haw done this year? "I think I'd have won," said tactiturn New Yorker. On this year's form, it seems she would have little trouble in wresting back her title. The impeccable Maria Bueno and the un. predictable Christine Tru... man could be the only conceivable threats. But there Is speculation here that America's anguish on the center of the court will be heard by other ghosts of the past Both -Little M. Connolly and the great Doris Hart have indicated a ering to come back. Many consider it wffl take such a resurrection to pot battered Uncle 8am out In fra* igejn. This, to the first time &> contemporary memory that no American has been involved In oat or ojhir of the singles semi-finals. Miu Hard from MnntehBhV>.

Eight United States crews have entered in the world-renowned four - day regatta, ' the largest American contingent since 1839 when Henley was established; as the international home of rowing. Tradition-bound Henley never seeds the entries and the luck of the draw has pitted two of the best crews together in a first round race for the Thames Challenge* Cup — the Harvard lightweight eight and the corresponding Junior varsity of Oxford Uni versity, the so-called Ilsis Boat. It promises to be close and the winner is highly favored to go on to take the cup, which Harvard won the last two years.
