But he has.not signed any players yet. McCall started campaigning among players last weekend, just as the tennis world was divided by the big walkout of stars which rocked Wimbledon. The association of Tennis Professionals pulled more than. 70 of its members out of the big tournament in protest . over the suspension of Yugoslavia's NikkiPilic. "Possibly that has .made . the-players more receptive," McCall said. "But, in fact, we don't need -that kind of help. I think that what has been going on in the last week is a bad thing all around." European tennis administrators, shocked by the ATP boycott of .Wimbledon, are openly scared of Wtt, which they think might take the •stars away from the. European circuit. The league is planned for May, June and July, with two weeks off to enable players to .compete at Wimbledon. It would cut right into the French and Italian championships. ' . "We came here to make our presentation to ,the players," McCair said. "I think I have: talked to 75 percent of the ATP players and I am pleased' with their response." . '. • ! •'••''• , • . ;. ATP\ which: has 97 members, has been a little cool towards league tennis until now. Under ATP's constitu- tion members play only in tournaments and do not sign contracts. McG.all is trying to interest enough, players to form 16's, each consisting of three:ihen and three women. Each match in the league Will consist of a men's ein-. gles, a women's singles and a mixed doubles. McCall says each team will play three or four matches a week. McCall, who has been a U.S. Davis Cup captain and a promoter, said team tennis has a definite place in the future of the game. "Tennis has always been an individual sport rather than a team sport," McCall said. "Even in the Davis Cup the crowd thinks in terms of the individual players. "In WTT we are trying to exploit -team spirit in tennis for thevfirst time." 1 um waiauii . . 72.

CITY (AP) - The Kansas City Chiefs have signed three more of their picks in the 1973 draft of cfl- lege football players, plus a free agent who is a soccer- style placekickej. . . Among the signees is the Chiefs' ninth - round .selection, Bill Story, a 245 - pound. er who played offensive guard and defensive tackle for Southern Illinois. The Chiefs hope to play him in the offensive line. | Tom Ramsey, of Yuma, a two - time all - conference defensive tackle and end at Northern Arizona, was Kansas City's 12th - round pick in the draft.

The New York •• Yankees have announced a. plan to operate a special TV camera for tonight's game against the Cleveland Indians in Yankee Stadiun^to determine wheth- . er Perry throws a grease ball , In Monday night's game. * Yankee centerfielder . Bobby Murcer, manager Ralph Houk and coach Dick Howser got in a heated argument with plate umpire Lou DiMuro about whether Perry was putting a foreign substance on the ball. Perry went on to win the ballgame for the Indians 4-2 and stop a Yankee eight- game winning streak. According to Thursday's Cleveland Plain Dealer, Indian general manager Phil Seghi said: "I'm going to let American League President Joe Crpnin know in no uncertain terms that I resent «the harassment of Perry and" the antics the other night .when they kept running out to the mound to inspect Gaylord. "The thing that really tees me off is this business of an American League representative being sent to Yankee Stadium-at the request of the Yankees." ; Dick Butler, supervisor of umpires, will be in Yankee Stadium today,' According to 1 Cronin, Butler was scheduled to be there as part of a regular inspection tour. Cronin also said that chemical tests are still being conducted on several allegedly "grease-smudge4" baseballs thrown by Perry, according to the Plain Dealer. The balls were sent by opposing managers. Lightless Wrigley seen TV's problem Associated Press CHICAGO-What happens if the Chicago, Cubs win the National League penna'nt—which means the weekday games of the World Series will be slated for 1 i g h 11 e s s Wrigley .Field? "I wish you hadn't asked me that question," said John Holland, vice ..president and general manager of the Cubs. ."First," I'm afraid'you might jinx us. And. second, it could be a problem.. ."I recently. receivd a letter from Tom Dawsori, he's the director of radio and television out of the commissioner's, off ice;, for a meeting -'which,-will be held during the All-Star break to discuss this Very iria^er." As matters now stand, the World Series opens on Satur- .day and Sunday in the American League park. That would' leave the Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday games in Wrigley Field. Under the present baseball contract 'with the 'National Broadcasting Co., are scheduled at night. "I recently received a letter tails of • the present contract," said Holland. :"But under the bid contract, which included only one night game, there was a stipulation that if the Cubs were in the world series that game would be played during the day. "I'm sure. NBC is highly concerned over the matter because of the popularity and the^ huge viewing audience of mid-week, night World Series games.* '-'But as far as the Cubs are concerned," continued Holland, "any change.s would have to be approved by Mr. Wrigley (P. K. Wrigley, owner and president of the Cubs). As yet, I haven't discussed the matter with him and I ' doubt |f he has given it much thought)" In the past, all sports, including^ baseball, have leaned toward, the dictates of television, in case the Cubs do get in an'jcJnight World Series games, are in demand by NBC and the fans, there are two obvious alternatives. One would be for the American League representative to yield the opening of the Series and the possible seventh- game home advantage to the Cubs. Another would be under the same 'plan, but if the Series did go .ftp a seventh game that final contest would be played in 'the^ierican League park, whichp^cessitates an additional )OWNBUYS ACRES Close In To Phoenix Cash Pric. $2995 1% A.P.R., IDS Ma. at $38,50 T.P. $4,150.00 D.F. $4,196.00 SOUTHWEST PROPERTIES INC. 955-6500 'Time—ITil 2-5 SECOND—$6,000, cl, 3YO, 1 1-16 ml.

Perhaps one of the cars should bechristenedthe "Minnie Mouse Special" as companion sprinter to the other. McNeely and his crew have been hard at work the past few weeks sorting out chassis problems on the cars. When McClung became available last week following Skeet Gibson's decision to "park" his Twister III, McNeely acted quickly to sign McClung, second winningest driver in Manzanita history.

Sonny Hedricks gained some breathing room over Belcher in claimer points while Gibson was making all the noise. Belcher is still untouchable in modified stocks though. MANZY POINTS .CLAIMERS -_Spnnv i wa Associated Press LONDON — Joe Frazier gave a happy war whoop at the end of an all-action training session Thursday and declared: "I'm back to my old self again." The former world heavyweight boxing champion who meets European titleholder Joe B u g n e r here 'Monday night was in an exuberant mood after a fierce four rounds of sparring followed by a violent tattoo on the punching bag. "I am doing the things I used to do," Frazier said. "I can move in on a man when I want to. I can get away when I want to." Frazier, who is going into action for the first time since he lost his crown to George Foreman in January, dismissed some British press suggestions that at 29 years he was possibly over the hill. "I'm never usually pleased with myself at workouts;" Frazier said. "But this is different. I can say this is the same old Frazier again." Frazier was working out to the rhythm of soul records at the Empire Ballroom in London's West End.' Meanwhile, the promoters were listening to a different sort of music, the jingle of multiple cash registers. With four days still to go before the bout, it was announced that $625,000 in ticket money already has poured in. Tickets for the 18,000-seat Earl's Court Stadium range from $50 to $5. "We are right on target to break the previous best fight payday," said matchmaker Mickey Duff. The previous record here was $1 million, paid to see Muhammad Ali fight Britain's Henry Cooper in 1966. Lealand McSpadden Spadden, who has won five straight main events at Manzanita and assumed the AHA point lead in the process. Billy Hicks, Gary Belcher and Mike Gibson will be after their second straight feature wins tonight at Manzanita in super modifieds, modified stocks and claimers, respectively. Belcher and Gibson scored clean sweeps of the trophy dash, heat race and main event last week. But odds are against their accomplishing the feat again with the kind of competition available.
