(AP) — America's top hopes, Jimmy Connor* and Arthur Ashe, stormed ahead Friday, but the seeded ranks in the U.S. Open tennis championships started thinning out. Tony Roche of Australia, seeded seventh, once acclaimed the heir apparent to Rod Laver, was the first to fall. Then they came tumbling down like dominoes — No. « Tom Okker, No. 12 John Alexander, fourteenth-seeded Vitas Gerulaitis, No. 16 Cliff Richey and seventh-seeded Francois Durr in the women's division. In the night session before a , Ashe roll in U.S. Open crowd of 4.941, second-seeded Guillermo Vilas of Argentina gained the third round with a 81, 6-1 victory over Alvaro Betancur of Colombia.and Kvonne Goolagong of Australia, the No. 4 womens seed, made short work of Mona Schallau of Iowa City, la. 6-3, 6-1. Certainly the biggest shock was the ouster of Okker, the scrappy Dutchman who was runner-up to Ashe here in 1968. Okker lost «o unheralded Hungarian Balazs Taroczy, 6-3, 6-4. Astounding Scores As surprising as were the outcomes, even more astounding were the scores. Roche won only two games from Chilean Jaime Fillol, who won 6-0, 6-2. Richey managed only one from Kddie Dihbs of North Miami Beach, Fla., in a 6-1, 6-0 rout. "1 told you this would happen." chortled Ashe. the Wimbledon titleholder. "You can throw the old time form out the window." Ashe had a much easier time than expected on center court before another near-sellout crowd at I he West Side Tennis Club. He smashed Vijay Amrit- ra.j of India, who beat Connors just a week ago, 6-3, 6-1. Different Connors It was a different Connors — calmer, more aggressive, more determined — who came out against Roger Taylor and quickly sent the big British left- hander to the sidelines, 6-2, 6-0. "I played better than I did Thursday," Connors said after- ward. "I will play even better tomorrow. I am here for business." Ashe acknowledged (hat he was_pleasan[ly surprised by the ease wiih~ whicihlJie__subdued- Amritraj. "I knew Vijay was a terrific player. I just, barely brat him a couple of weeks ago in Washington," Ashe said. "I am very relieved. It is like finishing the second round of a 15-round fight." Pattlson Beats Alexander Examining the day's seeded casualties, Ashe commented: "The only one you can really count as an upset is Alexander but, even then, if you ask most of the guys on the tour who would win between Alexander and Andrew Pattison on clay, most would probably say Pattison." Pattison. a Rhodesiari who upset Hie Nastase in the second round here two years ago, beat .l.he_Austr.alian—Alexandeiv-6-tr- 7-5, Francois Jauffret of France withstood two powerful comebacks from Gmilaitis, of Howard Reach, N.Y., for a 7-6, 7-5 victory. The Frenchman led 5-1 in the first set and 5-2 in the second only to have Gerulaitis slam back with rallies. Fails at Match Point .Jauffret twice served for the match and failed.

The Eastern Division champions could scrounge just five hits and one unearned run off Oak Dan Larson. It was Dan's misfortune to oppose a pair of shutout pitchers, the first a newcomer who gained the 1-0 victory on a one- hit allowance in seven innings.

(AP) Thirteen of the best standard bred horses in the country compete today for the largest purse ever offered 3-year-old trotters in the Hambletonian Stake.

At least two heats will be trotted to decide the contest. The horse that finishes first twice wins. Recalls 167,000 grid face masks RIVKR GROVE, ILL.

His open stance pointed toward right field wasn't the same, but Ed Bouchee's face was familiar Friday night as he walked on to Little League Park's field. Bouchee, 42, no longer takes his left-handed swings. He gave them up to umpire softball — a hobby that has earned him a job in the National 16-inch slow-pitch tournament here. "I've been doing this type of thing for seven or eight years," the former Phila- d e 1 p h i a Phillies, Chicago Cubs and New York Mets first baseman said. "This is my first crack at a national tournament." Hirsch says W to job at Hawaii 'S HOMER SINKS CARDS, 6-2 MADISON, WIS.

Bouchee travels from his Des Plaines, III., home foj $10 a game and a free room at a local motel for three days. "I'm used to working ttiese sixteen (size of the ball) games by myself in the Chicago area," Bouchfw explained. "We will have three ump« in every game here." The native of Spokane. Wash., began umpiring at ihe. high school and college level, "and I really missed playing baseball those first two or tbree years," he said. "Now I seldom get to see a major league park." In fact, Bouchee says he follows the White Sox at the Cubs' park (Wrigley Field) for a couple of years and went to see a few Sox games last year because I used to play ball with Chuck Tanner (White Sox manager) and third base coach Joe Lonnett. "It's hard to find time between my regular job and umpiring to follow the majors. Right now, I'm working about 3,000 games a year slow pitch." Bouchee is employed full- time by A. C.
