Houston Oil- ers' safety, John Charles was defending on the play. (AP Wireplioto) By Associated Press Washington Re<Jskins Coach George Allen has a quarterback problem—and the other teams in the National Football League are" hoping he solves it soon. Allen's problem is deciding on a starting quarterback — Billy Kilmer or Sonny Jurgensen? Jurgenscn is the 15-year veteran, a former NFL passing champ who holds numerous NFL records and ranks as the league's premier lifetime passer. Kilmer, meanwhile, is the 10-year veteran who came to the Hedskins last year and, when Jurgensen suffered a preseason shoulder injury, stepped right in and led the Redskins to a postseason playoff berlh. In order to decide on a starter, Allen has been letting Kilmer work the first half of each of Washington's preseason games, with Jurgensen handling the second half. And the results have boon nothing less than spectacular. Washington has won all three games played thus far, and won them with ease—33-3 Trap shooters wish they'd saved scores VANDALIA, Ohio (AP) — The two men who tied for the Preliminary Handicap Championship at the 73rd annual Grand American Trapshooting Tournament Thursday both hinted they wished they'd saved their scores for today's big Grand American handicap.

Sox face moment of truth CHICAGO (AP) - Paced by the dynamic duo of jilugger Dick Allen and pitcher Wilbur Wood, the Chicago White Sox invade neighboring Milwaukee tonight to launch a nine-game trip marking the moment of truth for the Pale Hose' divisional pennant bid. Holding a half-game leadership in the American League West race, the surprising Sox must prove they are for real on the road where thus far they have won only 21 of 53 games. Contrastingly, the Sox have an astounding 47-16 record at home, reflected in a turnstile count pushed over a million for the first time since 1965 when they swept a Tuesday- Wednesday pair from the New York Yankees. As the Sox headed for a three-game series at Milwaukee, they had wrapped up a home attendance of 1,016,828 for 54 dates, compared with 681,885 for the same number in 1971. The Sox, leading the AL West champion Oakland A's by 1^ game, could get the vital road trip off to a successful start at Milwaukee over whose Brewers they hold a one-sided 8-1 season edge. But then they visit Boston and New York, also for three- game sets. The Hose hold edges over both, currently leading Boston 5-4 and New York 6-3, but those two clubs still are very much in contention in the AL East race. Allen takes the AL's most potent bat on the road excursion, leading the league in home runs with 32 and RBIs with 91, and his .317 mark is close to the batting top. After Allen stroked key home runs in successive games against the Yankees, one a two-run, rare 470-foot clout into Comiskey Park's dead cenier field bleachers, Sox manager Chuck Tanner commented: "I don't know words enough to describe the talent of Dick Allen. He does it all, runs, fields and provides inspiring leadership in addition to his powerful hitting. "As a right - handed hitter, Allen can blast to right field like a left handed batter. He is truly amazing and I don't know who can possibly beat him for Most Valuable Player honors." Tanner more succinctly lauded southpaw Wood, who Sunday at Milwaukee will seek his 23rd victory, seventh straight decision and 10th victory in his last. 11 starts.

N in semis HAVERFORD, Pa. (AP) Second seeded Mark Cox of England and unseeded Mai Anderson of Australia square off today in the semifinal round of the $15,000 Penns y 1 v a n i a Lawn Tennis Championships. Cox, a contract professional, had to battle to overcome determined Sashi Menon of Ind i a ' s Davis Cup team Thursday but finally broke service in the sixth game of the final set to win 6-2, 3-6, 6-3 at the Merlon Cricket Club. Anderson, a 37-year-old Australian Davis Cup member, had a relatively easy lime ousting 19-year-old Harold Solomon of Silver Springs, Md., 6-3, 6-3. Solomon is a member of the American Davis Cup team. Anderson played nearly flawless tennis to outslug Solomon's two-fisted backhand which yields a lot of top spin. But he broke service early in each set and had little difficulty from then on. T h i r d seeded Jimmy Connors, 20, from Belltvi'le, 111., powered his way to an impressive 7-5, 6-3 victory over Aussie Colin Dibley to gain the third semifinal position. Although Connors used his strength to defeat Dibley, he broke service in the first set with a soft lob with Dibley out of position. The fourth semifinal slot went to Roger Taylor, another contract pro from England. Taylor's return of service kept John Cooper of Australia off balance and forced Cooper into errors. Connors snd Taylor plrv their s e ni i f i n a 1 match Saturday. In women's action Thursday, unseeded and almost unnoticed Laurie Fleming continued to p'ow through her opposition to gain a spot in the women's semifinals. Miss Flenuning of Fort Lauderdale, Fla., who surprised second seeded Pat Pretorius of South Africa in the second round, showed uncanny accuracy Thursday while beLiting Susan Stap of Deerfield. 111., 6-4, 6-0. Today shy is scheduled to play Isabella Fernandez of Columbia, who ousted Ann Kiyomuri of San Maleo, Calif., Thursday, 6-0, 6-4. Miss Kivomun, the t'.S.

CHICAGO (AP)-The Chicago Black Hawks want to keep Bobby Hull from making public statements about their current contractual battle and from lending his name to promotion of the Winnipeg Jets. Arthur Morse, Black Hawk attorney, asked U.S. District Court Thursday for a tempo r a r y restraining order muzzling Hull. Mose showed the court a newspaper advertisement in which Hull encouraged persons to attend the World Hockey Association Opener in Chicago Oct. 31 between the Jets and the Chicago Cougars. He said Hull's contract with the Black Hawks, which expires Sept. 30, provides that Hull can only lend his name to Hawk promotions. Morse said Hull also should be silenced "so he can't induce other players to join him" in leaving the National Hockey League to play in the WHA. "He's like an evangelist," Morse said. "Children follow him around. Hockey players follow him around and listen to what he has to say. HeS to what he has to say. He's a dangerous element as far as we are concerned." Hull, 33, longtime superstar of the Hawks, signed a multimillion dollar contract June 27 with the Jets. The Black Hawks filed a suit last v/eek charging Hull with contract violation. Hull filed a counter suit Wednesday charging the Hawks and the NHL with violation of the Sherman Anti- Trust Act. One-time Army cook fires record round PINEHURST, N.C. (AP) — Richie Karl, a one-time Army cook and former Alaska Amateur champion, was not at all dismayed he may have to relinquish a lead in a $100,000 golf tournament to face one of the game's great stars— perhaps Jack Nicklaus or Lee Trevino—in head to head-to- head competition. The longshot Karl, who's never even come close to winning a regular event on the pro tour, set a course record with a career-best seven-uniler-par 65 Thursday in the opening round of the $100,000 Liggett & Myers Open. But, should he retain the top spot in that chase for a $20,000 first prize through today's second round, he's required to drop out of the L & M Tournament and move something," said Tanner, who has started the tireless flutterball artist 20 times with only two days rest for a 13-6 record against 9-5 with three days rest. Wood's 22 victories already match his entire 1971 win total and he has an easy Shot at the most White Sox victories last posted, a half- century ago—25 by Red Faber in 1921. "Woody will get 11 more starts' this season, 12 if we need him," said Tanner, who starts Tom Bradley (13-10) against Milwaukee tonight and Stan Bahnsen (16-13) on Saturday. into the 16-man bracket for the U.S. Professional Match Play Championship, a $150,000 event offering $40,000 to the winner. That one will be played Saturday and Sunday, with two rounds eacJi day, on the same Country Club of North Carolina course that is the site of the L & M. The two rounds of match play on the weekend will be sandwiched around the third and fourth rounds of the L & M Tournament. Nicklaus, 'Trevino, Arnold Palmer and five others already have their spots in the match play and were on the sidelines in the first round of the L & M Thursday. After today's play in the L & M, the eight players leading the field drop out of that tournament and move into the match play. Bench's 29th paces Cincy By HAL BOCK (AP Sports writer) ,' Look out, Joe Torre. Your switch from catcher to third baseman may be catching on. Torre, who blossomed into a full-fledged superstar when he gave up his chest protector and shin guards, may have given Johnny Bench, already a superstar, some ideas. Cincinnati's slugging receiver showed up at third base for the Reds Thursday and tagged his 29th homer of the year in a 6-0 victory over Montreal. That was the only game played in the National League Thursday. In the American League, Texas split a doubleheader with Milwaukee, winning the first game 4-1 but dropping the nightcap 4-3. "It's tough to catch everyday," said Bench. "The bat gets heavy after awhile. I find it easier if I can play in the field. It's almost like a rest for me." The rapid development of rookie catcher Bill Plummer has enabled Manager Sparky Anderson to let Bench work elsewhere in the lineup. Mostly, the Cincinnati slugger has been in right field but he switched to third base Thursday and handled two chances including a bunt flawlessly. The same couldn't be said of the Expos, who committed three errors to make it easy for the Reds and Jack Billingham, who tossed a six- hitter. It was the second straight shutout for the veteran right-hander and evened his season's record a 10-10. The Rangers scored three unearned runs in the first inning of the opener the last two on a misjudged fly ball which fell for a triple by Tom Grieve. Frank Howard homered and Olympic Stadium jeered LUMBER FISHING DERBY TOWN & COUNTRY LAKES Elliot Maddox contributed three singles to the Texas attack. Mike Paul and Pete Broberg combined for the six- hitter. In the nightcap, Dave May clubbed a two-run homer, tying the score for the Brewers and then beat out ah infield single in the eighth inning to deliver the winner. Dalton Jones' bases-loadnd double drove in all three Texas runs. Major League AMERICAN LEAGUE BATTING (275 at bats)— Scheinblum, KC, .320; Carow, Mln, .320; Rudi, Oak, .317.

The roof, as i>erforated as a swiss cheese and held up by overhead pulley suports, is one of the main causes for the catcalls. The critics claim it doesn't keep out the rain, causes spectators to roast on a hot day, sets up windy currents—and is ugly.
