B-2 Alton Evonin.u; S;ilun1;i\ . Auuust 'Shouldn't have to sneak,' says Brown By JOHN W. ('HACK CINCIXX.MI (AH - The Cincinn.iii Bengals, boasting the mosl depth in their five- year history and a defense the draft, should better their 1971 performance "We shouldn't have lo sneak up oa teams to beat them this year." Cincinnati Coach Paul Brown say? of his team, which slumped to ,1 4-H) mark last season. "We think we are going to be very competitive." The Bengals, who won th" American Football Conference Central Division title in 1970, dropped six games last year by four points or less and the defense look much of Hie K.,me. But in the dr.ifl. they picked three plaveis who stand a strong chance of starting. They are defensive and S h e r m a n White, safety 'I o m in \ Casanova, and 1 i n o b a i k e r .l:m I.oC'air Fourth-round draft selection Bornard .lackson, a corner- back, should also see plenty of action. Hegarding over-all depth on both offence and defense, \ o t o r a n linebacker Al Beauchamp. who is battling to retain his starting spot, said, "We're solid. We can play different people and have the same effort." rule is denied By WILL UUIMSLKY MUNICH (Al 1 ) - The charge by the veteran Olga Connally that r.S. Olympic athletes have been muz/led with a gag rule was roundly denied by a top American official but nobody said so positively. •'It's true that the suggestion has been made thai press interviews be cleared through the team coach or another qualified official," Clifford Buck, president of the I'.S. Olympic committee, said Friday night. "But there is no ironclad rule—we aren't muz/Ing anybody.'' Buck's statement was echoed by Arthur Lent/, executive director, and Bob Paul, director of information, but some competitors arriving late Friday appeared to have the same impression as Mrs Connolly, a four-time Olympian, gold medalist and wife of former hammer throw champion Harold Connolly. "I am forbidden to talk with a member of the press without permission from a coach or manager," Olga told the Washington Evening Star and News in Washington, D.C "This is just one of the flagrant violations of my constitutional rights •)!' freedom of speech and movement." The onetime Czechoslovakia n star added' "We are constantly watcho'.' like children. Our names arc written down for doing things. We cannot talk to the press.

Buck, discussing Mrs. Connally's chaises, said U.S. competitors are not forced to make any commitment or sign any kind of paper. "It's all for their protection," the USOC president .said. "They aren't bound to do anything except measure up I o standards of conduct demanded of all athletes." Lent/ scoffed al the charge "After making five Olympic teams, you have to do something to get attention." Leni/. said. "You know Olga. She just wants to be pampered." He said Olga was a member of a special consultants' committee to help bridge Hie <rap between the Olympic management and competitors. Jesse Owens, Don Schollan- der, Kalph Boston and others are on Hit committee," he added. "They decided on certain procedures to protect athletes in training but there is no gag rule. Paul said, "You can't turn 14 and 15-year-old kids lose with newsmen without sonic guidance. They might get all shaken up and it might affect their performance." Wade wins way lo finals in straiglit sets TORONTO (AP) - Virginia Wade of Great Britain lobbed her way into today's women's singles final of the Canadian Open Tennis Championships with a (i II, Mi, ti-l! victory Friday over Margaret Court of Australia. She'll meet Kvonue Goola- gong of Australia, Ihe 11171 W i m bled o n Queen, who gained a straight-set (i-3, fi-2 decision Friday over fourth- seeded Linda Tuero of Molaire, La. The final pays S-1,400 to the winner and $2,21)0 to the loser. Miss Wade showed her determination in the crucial seventh game of the'final set which she came back to win after it went to deuce eight times and Mrs. Court had three chances to break ser\ ice. The vo'ley game of Ihe top- seeded Miss (loolagong was too much for .Miss Tuero. who slaved away from the net and u ailed for ;lie Australian to mistakes which never came. In nice. \ singles.

"He is no longer the raw kid you saw last year," Brown said about Anderson, who reeently helped k-ad Ihe Bengals over I lie powerful Detroit Lion.s in an exhibition i;ame. "Tin one who moves us the most effectively is '.joiiii; to carry the brunt of the 'oad." Anderson look over as a starter last year after Cartel' was injured. Then Anderson i;o| liurl ;IIH! the Ik'iii,'als even used Dave Lewis, the NKI/s leading pur.ter the last Iwo years although he played (liiarterbaek at Stanford a few years aj;o "We are at the nivrcy of the quarterback as just about every team is," Hrown said. "Whether I he quarterbacks slay healthy and whether any other key players are hurt will have a considerable bearing on how we do." The Bengals' weakness seems to be in the pass receiving department. They bad trouble lasl year with r u n n i n g backs dropping passes, and this year, nore of the receivers has seemed lo warm up. "None of our receivers 'o date has caught the ball like we had hoped," Brown said. In the offensive line;, ;he Bengals have Pat. Matson and li'ul'iis Mayes who both enjoyed good years in 1071. The line complement also includes second-year men Vernon Holland and Steve Lawson. Brown said he figures that the Pittsburgh Steelers wil! probably provide the stillest battle for the division crown. "I think Pittsburgh is coming in awfully strong," Brown said. "They've had bad years for years, but 1'ie drafts are beginning to show up." Dallas and Joliel fall in tourney KAIiMINGTON, N.RI.

Whitlow of Detroit, LOS ANGKLKS (AP) — The Chicago Cubs and Los Angles Dodgers are pretty much in the same boat, just in different oceans. Both clubs are playing considerably better of laic, but neither is gelling anywhere. Friday night the Cubs' Ferguson Jenkins shut out. Ihe Dodgers. ,>(). but Chicago remains in third place in Ihe National League Kasl, 11 games behind Pittsburgh. The loss dropped the Dodgers '.}\<2 games behind Cincinnati in the Western Division. Los Angeles also is in third place. "We're a lol like the Dodgers. 1 guess," Chicago pilot Whiley Lockinan said afterward. "We're playing pretty good baseball hut we haven't been able to pick up any ground." Tonight, in the second game of the three-game series, Burt Hooton, 7-l'0, will start for Chicago against Los Angeles' Tommy John, 10-5. Sunday afternoon Hick Heuschel, 5-5, will be Ihe Cubs' starter against Claude Osteeu. 13-8. Bill Singer's wildness in the first inning Friday night cost him his 12th loss, fourth in a row and ninth in his last 10 decisions. After he gave up a runscoring single and four walks — one with the bases loaded—in Ihe first inning, Singer settled down and allowed Chicago just two more singles until'leaving for a pinch hitter in the seventh. The Cubs added three more in the ninth off of Kon Per- ranoski, making his first stadium appearance since rejoin- ing the dub a week ago. "1 can't understand it," dismayed Los Angels Manager Walter Alston said of Singer. "Me pitched very well after that first inning. 1 thought he'd warmed up all right in the bullpen." The 1 two runs were plenty for Jenkins, who earned his 17lh win with his fourth shutout and 2()th complete game. But he struggled with his control as well In the third inning, after gelling the first two Dodgers, he walked the bases full. But Rosewtdl in semis of FOut' WORTH, to*.
