Only Two Americans Left at Wimbledon WIMBLEDON, England (API- It's a pretty good bet that the early bird who caught the worm didn't come from an American university. That's the opinion of many of the U.S. squad battling their way through these 77th Wimbledon tennis championships. Both Chuck McKinley and Frank Froehling — the two last Americans in the men's singles- say most of the U. S. players arrived too late to do much good. The reason: Many were tied up right until last week in U. S. intercollegiate tournaments. McKinley and Froehling — both students at Trinity University in San Antonio—were given special permission to duck the intercol- legiates and early. McKinley arrived three weeks ago, Froehling had a week's warm-up in a pre-Wimbledon tournament. But talented Americans like Dennis Ralston of Bukersfield Calif.; Bill Bond, San Diego Calif.; and Tom Edlefson, Berke ley, Calif., as well as Mexico' Rafael Osuna, a student at the University of Southern Californu were al on duty in the intercol legiate at Princeton, N. J. Thrown into action here on grass courts and virtually at a loment's notice, Bond went out n the first round, Ralston in the econd and Osuna and Edlefsen n the third. The field of 20 young Americans was trimmed to two Jo Ann Prentice Takes Over Lead BROOKVILLE, N.Y. (AP)—Jo Ann Prentice of Columbia, S.C., never has won a tournament on he ladies professional golfers .oui 1 , but today may be the day n the third and final round of he 54-hole Carvel Open. Jo Ann fired a five-under-par 67 for a tournament record in Friday's second round at the Tarn O'Shanter club to climb within tvyo strokes of Judy Kimball o; Sioux City, Iowa, the leader at 139. This was seven strokes bet' ter than her first round and an other 34-33 probably would be enough to win her first tourna ment. Jo Ann needed only 26 putts foi her 67 as she posted six birdies to tie Marilyn Smith, Tequesta Fla. for the runner-up spot at 141 Miss Smith, the first round lead er, shot a 71 and missed a firs place tie with Miss Kimball when she bogied the par 4 18th. iy the time the round of 16 was eached. McKinley lasted his svay into the quarter-finals Friday with a typi- :al mixture of good and indiffer- mt shots against Jaidip Mukerjea >f India, 6-3, 8-6, 6-3. The 22- 'ear-old American has yet to drop L set in this tournament. McKinley now meets Australia's Martin Mulligan, last year's de- eated finalist, or British Davii Cupper Bobby W.'.son in the scrap for a semifinal place. Froehling still has to win his berth in the quarter-finals. He plays today against Roger Tay or, a 20-year-old Briton with a big serve but not long on experi ence. Mulligan and Wilson also play today.

BATTING — Harmon Killebrew, Twins, led Minnesota to 11-4 and 10-3 doubleheader sweep over Washington by collecting six hits, including his 17th homer, and driving in five runs. By MARVIN R. 1MKE BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) — The veather could be an important actor in determining the winner of tonight's third annual AH-Amerca football game. If it continues hot and humid as it has been all week—and the weatherman says it might—fellows like Mississippi's Jim Dunaway, a 270-pounder, and Michigan State's Dave Behrman, a 265-1 pounder, might find themselves a lot lighter before the game's end. Heat and exercise often result in weight loss. The forecast calls for warm and humid weather again today, with a high temperature of about 90. Afternoon or evening thundershowers also were predicted. Approximately 30,000 fans were expected to watch the East, coached by Wisconsin's Milt ruhn, and the West, coached by Southern California's John McKay, battle in War Memorial Stadium. The West won the first game n 1961, 30-20, and the East cap- ;ured last year's, 13-7. Both coaches have picked their own quarterback to call signals. McKay will go with Bill Nelsen and Bruhn with Ron Vanderkelen. Both hooked up in a Rose Bowl passing duel last New Year's Day, with Nelsen and his fellow Trojans emerging victorious over the Badgers.
