As usual, Olympic from Hull must Beham, Weaver facing top duo up \viih WHA By NICK UiDINGTON MI'Nidi (AP) — A physical I'M ness freak, a bard wilh beads, three evangelists, a f'hicanii, and the youngest and the biggest ever. The I'niied States is fielding this mixed bag in an effort, to make a good Olympic s h o w ing in freestyle wrestling, traditionally dominated by Russians. No American wrestler has won a gold medal in the Olympic Games since 1960. In 1964 while the Russians were winning 10 medals with three golds, the U.S. grapplers won one bronze. In 1968 it was a total of nine with three go'ds for the Russians and two silver for Americans. But th;: word around the wrestling training area is that, the Americans are improved. I'.S. freestyle wrestling coach Bill Farrell of New York says his team is "young Central Florida's makes early bid MUNICH (AP) - Central !'''orida has expressed an interest in hosting the Olvmpic Games in 1980 or but good.' He is cautious on c o m p a i i s o n s with the Russians. "I know they're all saying it's the Russians and us this year. Bu' on the books they arc stronger. They've got five or six world champs," said Farrell. Farrell has only two world champions, Dan Gable, 26, of Waterloo, Iowa, and Wayne Wells, 26, of Abilene, Tex. But he has just about everything else. Gable, 1971 world champion, has trained so hard for the Olympics he has been called the world's most perfectly conditioned man. He confidently predicts a gold medal restrain., says court CHICAGO (AP) — The Chicago Black Hawks have won an apparent hollow victory temporarily over their former superstar. Bobby Hull, who has jumped to the Winnipeg Jets of the new World Hockey Association. A federal court judge Friday issued a 1'fl-day restraining order, petitioned by the Black Hawks of the National Hockey League, banning Hull from publicizing the Jets or "representing himself as anything other than a Chicago Black Hawk hockey player." The WHA won't admit any of numerous defecting NHL players to member training camps until after Sept. 30 when their former NHL contracts expire. The restraining order also bared Hull from reporting to the Jet camp and playing for any other team than the Black Hawks. Thus the Black Hawks scored only a temporary victory, mussling Hull from promoting the Jets or the WHA until Sept. 4. The real legal showdown between the Black Hawks and Hull, who filed opposing suits, will begin on Sept. 11 when Federal judge William J. Lynch decides whether the case should go before a federal or state court. The Black Hawks filed suit in Cook County Circuit Court charging the Black Hawks of his Hawk contract when he -signed a reported $2 million contract with the Jets on June 27.

(AP) — Deane Beman wasn't givng any ground to Jack Nicklaus going into today's first round of the rich U.S. Professional Match Play Golf Championship. "Anybody would be a damn fool if they said they'd be happy to play him head-to- head for a living," the-gritty little Beman admitted but added: "But when I turned pro five years ago, I didn't come em here to back off from anybody." Then the 5-foot-7 Beman, out of the shortest hitters on the tour, grinned and added: "But I won't be at all surprised if he outdrives me once in a while." The Beman-Nicklaus match, along with Lee Trevino vs. defending champion DeWitt Weaver, were the features of today's first round pairings that were completed only in the gathering gloom of early evening Friday. The others have Miller Barber vs. Lanny Wadkins, Arnold Palmer vs. Don Bics, J e r r y Heard Vs. I.en Thompson, Frank Beard vs. Paul Moran, George Archer vs. Babe Hiskey and Dave Stockton vs. Bob Barbarossa.
