NFL Owners Draw Players Ass'n Anger MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. (AP) — Testimony continues today on charges by the National Football League Players Association that NFL owners have failed to bargain on player fines and artificial turf. The hearings are being held by the Minneapolis office of the National Labor Relations Board. Trial examiner Melvin Welles of Washington, D.C., indicated testimony might continue through the week and said a judgment wasn't likely until late July. In opening statements, NFL attorney Theodore Kheel said owners are willing to bargain on the issues but that Rozelle's status as final arbitrator has been agreed upon. Eugene Keating, counsel for the players association, contended that the commissioner is not an impartial arbitrator. That was echoed by Edward R. Garvey, director of the players association. "I have never heard anything more ridiculous in my life,'' he told the trial examiner. The commissioner is the "agent" of the owners, he said, not an impartial arbitrator. Garvey said the real issue is the scope of a four-year collective bargaining agreement in effect since Feb. 1,1970. Garvey claims the players Baseball Roundup By Associated Press Aimrkafl League out to almost seven per game. If Eddie Kasko had any hair That's pretty good. They won three of the eight games and on the top of his head, it would certainly be gray by now. That's what managing the Boston Red Sox can do to you. Take, for example, this past week. The Red Sox played eight baseball games and scored a total of 54 runs which averages Little League Scores Moose Lodge got by Dixie Parts 12-9 in last night's first NL game. Steve Young was the winning pitcher. Jimmy Jeffrey was two for three for Moose. Bobby Taylor had two hits and three RBI's for Dixie. In the second National League game, Fatheree beat VFW 5-2. Zach Adcock got the win. Dale Ferris went two for four to lead all batters. One Bull beat Motor Inn 8-5 in the first AL game of the evening. Tom Wing struck-out nine, walked eight and gave up five hits in getting the win. Tommy Laycock got three hits in four trips to the plate. Rotary edged Harvester Barbeque 6-5 in the second game. Helms was the winning pitcher. Gary Adair had a home run for Barbeque. In farm play UCT beat Citizen's Bank 13-9 in the first contest. Jim Moses got the win and Darrell Hood batted 1.000 for the evening, going three for three. Chase Oil got by Ford's Body Shop 8-6 in the second farm game. Carter Hunnicutt was on the mound for Chase. .Babe Ruth Scores In Monday night action Pampa Hardware beat Grant Supply 7-2 and Pampa Lumber got by Ideal 5-2. Last night Cree edged Johnson's Inc. 11-10 and First National Bank trounced the Lions Club 13-1. that's pretty bad. The Boston bats went to sleep Tuesday night and the Sox came out on the short end of a 5-2 score against Texas. That's the same Texas team the Sox beat 12-0 the night before. "Twelve runs one day, two the next," said Kasko. "What can you say? That's the way the game goes. At least that's the way it's been going for us." Elsewhere in the American League Tuesday night, Minnesota swept a doubleheader from Cleveland 7-3 and 3-1, New York trimmed Kansas City 42, Milwaukee downed Chicago 7-1, Baltimore defeated California 4-1 and Oakland nipped Detroit 3-2 in 11 innings. , NATIONAL LEAGUE "I don't care what I swing at as long as it's a strike," explained Lee May of the Houston Astros. "I get into trouble when I start swinging at bad pitches." May connected with a good toss and slammed a two-run homer in the fifth inning Tuesday night as the Astros defeated the New York Mets 74 and assumed first place in the National League West. The triumph nosed Houston one- half game ahead of Cincinnati, which lost to Montreal 7-2. Houston jumped off to a 30 lead in the third, added four more in the fifth on May's blast, a double by Tommy Helms and a single by Roger Metzger and then weathered a late New York rally for the victory. In other National League action. St. Louis edged San Diego 5-4. and Chicago swamped San Francisco 15-8. The Los Angeles at Pittsburgh and Philadelphia at Atlanta games were rained out. would not have agreed to the contract had they not been assured by Marshall Leahy, then general counsel for the owners' NFL Management Council, that the agreement provided for continued bargaining on working conditions. The owners claim the issues of fines and safety on artificial turf are not covered by the contract as proper subjects for bargaining. Garvey said he has been unable to get owners of the NFL clubs to cooperate on a study of injuries on artificial playing surfaces. He also complained about a "new rule" providing for automatic |200 fines against any player who leaves his bench to join in a fight. He said the rule was announced without consulting the players' association. The owners contend the fine announcement was not a new rule. Kheel said the commissioner always had had the power to levy fines. PAMPA, TEXAS ««lh YEAR Wednesday,.lunc 21,1972 Criticism Unfounded Women's Coach Claims Charters, Video Tapes Discussed At Meeting ByCLAY LIVELY Athletic director Ed Lehnick suggested at last night's Harvester Booster Club meeting that perhaps the greatest help the club could be for Pampa athletics would be to help finance chartered buses for out-of-town games. The school board's established policy is that a trip must be at least 125 miles from Pampa before the school district will authorize using a chartered bus instead of a school bus. If a charter is made for less than 125 miles, the school board will pay only a percentage of the cost. Anyone who has ever ridden 115-120 miles in school bus seats at 50 mph and tried to get loosened up to play a game knows why a chartered bus is preferable. Head football coach Buddy Williams suggested that a good project for the club might be to raise funds for a video-tape machine-a good coaching aid that might prove invaluable for all high school athletic teams. The type Williams described has tapes that are erasable and costs in the neighborhood of $1200-11500. It was suggested that a way to raise funds would be for Pampa coaches to play a baseball or softball game with a team from here, such as the American Legion team. Films of the state track meet in Austin and isolated shots of the Harvester spring game were shown after business had been conducted. Musso Spurns NFL For Canadian Football LUBBOCK, Tex. (AP) Running back Johnny Musso, Alabama's "Italian Stallion," says he never thought he would spurn a National Football League offer to join a Canadian club. But he did and he is delighted.

"I got a better contract and the people treated me better... it's beautiful country and I believe there is a lot of opportunity for a guy who goes up there and does well," he added. Musso, one of Bear Bryant's finest products, will be performing for the Alabama coach for the last time Saturday night as a member of the East team in the Coaches All-America Football Game. The nationally televised contest matches Bryant's Easterners against the Western club of Oklahoma's Chuck Fairbanks in Texas Tech's Jones Stadium. Musso, 5-foot-ll and 191 pounds, said until recently he never considered a pro career anywhere but the NFL. "Really and truly, that's where I always wanted to play," he said. "I never thought about playing anywhere else. But I got drafted low and then Chicago didn't make any glamorous offers by far." He said he got "a little disenchanted with the Bears and then began seriously considering a Canadian offer. After I talked about it with them (The Lions), after they made their offer and I saw their place and met their people and saw how they treated you, 1 don't even know why I thought about it so long." /WOIVTTCO/VYERY OUR 1OOTH ANNIVERSARY YEAR $3_$4 3 DAYS ONLY!

CHAMPAIGN, III. (AP) Criticism of Champaign as the training site for the United States Women's Olympic squad is unfounded, says team coach Nell Jackson. Miss Jackson, a professor at the University of Illinois, Tuesday replied to charges by Olympians Olga Connolly and Martha Watson that Champaign's weather would interfere with training. The training camp is scheduled for Aug. 3-17, but Mrs. Connolly and Miss Watson said they would not participate in the camp if it reamins in Champaign. Miss Watson said in California that Miss Jackson wanted to have the camp at Champaign so she could continue to draw pay as a professor while working with the team. "I'm not even working this summer," said Miss Jackson. "I think they should have talked to me first before making remarks like that in public." Miss Jackson said, "The decision to hold the camp here was made by the U.S. Women's Anthony Wins Starlanes Open REDWOOD CITY, Calif. (AP) - Earl Anthony, 34, of Tacoma, Wash., breezed to his fourth pro bowling victory and second in a row Tuesday night, taking first place money of $5,000 in the Japan Starlanes Open Bowling Tournament. Anthony, a winner less than two weeks ago in Portland, Ore., won by a 72 pins over Bob Hood of Daly City, Calif. For the 42-game event, Anthony had 10,517 pins, including bonus pins of 30 for each victory and 15 for a tie. Hood, who earned $2,700 for his best showing ever in two years of Professional Bowlers Association competition, had 10,455 pins, while third placer Mike McGrath, El Cerrito, Calif., totaled 10,142. Olympic Committee. The committee knew the facilities here and knew they were similar to those at Munich." Miss Watson was quoted as saying the temperature in Champaign during the summer is "usually around 90 degrees and the humidity is 80 per cent." Miss Watson and Mrs. Connolly said nearly 40 top women track and field athletes have Legion Plays Borger Tonight Pampa's American Legion team carries a 3-0 record into tonight's game in Borger. Larry Knutson or Jeff Hogan will probably be on the mound for the Rebels. Pampa has beaten Perryton, Dumas and Spearman in its previous games. Borger has beaten Dumas and Perryton to gain a 2-0 mark for the season. Dennis Parks will pitch for Borger. This will be the first match-up of the two favorites in the northern division of America^! Legion district 18. The winner of tonight's game will definitely have an edge on winning the northern division. signed their petition requesting a change in the training site. Miss Jackson added, "The last time I can remember Miss Watson being here was at the Olympic Show Meet last June. It was probably the hottest day of the year and we had a shower midway through. However, the track was fine after the rain. Then, as they were leaving, we had tornado warnings, so that is probably what bothered them." Miss Jackson said there is little cause for concern since such weather is not typical. She also said it would be difficult to change the location now.
