Machine-like Evert very seldom rattles Sat., Aug. 30, 1975 • DES MOINES REGISTER / 33 BUT THAT'S ONLY WAY TO BEAT HER, SAYS WADE FOREST HILLS, N.Y. (AP) - Virginia Wade, the queen of British tennis, is in awe of Chris Evert, the woman who rules the world, but she says she thinks there is a way to beat her. "It is astonishing that someone can win with such ease all the time," said Wade, seeded second to Evert in the U. S. Open championships. "It is very amazing that someone can be so sure of herself. Feel Pressure "I am sure there is a way to play her. She doesn't do anything, you know. She hits the ball into the corner and waits for you to take the initiative. When you do, you have to be superlative/You always think, 'What can I do to break up the game,' The pressure is on you." One key, Wade said, is to rattle Chris. But how does one go about heating up the ice cube of the tennis circuit? "If you play good shots against her, she gets extremely annoyed," said Virginia. "I don't think she thinks anybody has the right to hit a better shot than she." Wade said she can usually tell when Chris is upset. "Oh, you know, she kind of twirls around, turns her back on you." Superior Feeling Another way to ruffle her is to show more confidence than she. "She eminates a feeling of superiority. She has this very appraising look of her opponent," said Wade. "If someone had the ability to feel superior to her instead of her having you under her thumb. . . . "If one could start off well, CHRIS •VERT VIRGINIA WADE one could play a psychological game as well as a technical game. . . . "If one could start off brilliantly. . . ." Wade has not done well against her American rival. Her latest loss to Evert was a 6-2, 6-0 humiliation in Monday's final on clay in Rye, N.Y. Meanwhile, Evert has run her victory string on clay to 76 matches in 15 tournaments, her latest Thursday night at the expense of Australian Lesley Hunt. Casals Upset Wade scored an easy first- round victory in the Open Friday, beating Kate Latham, 6-1, 6-1. Her next match is against Marina Kroschina of the Soviet Union, who upset Rosemary Casals in Thursday's first round. If the seedings hold up, Wade should eventually advance into the final against Evert. And Wade says she just might be able to beat her. "There must be a half-dozen players who technically can beat Chris," she said. "I can see how one should play her, but doing it something else."

Two 18-hole matches this afternoon will determine the players who will fight it out over 36 holes Sunday for the championship vacated by Jcr:y Pate, who turned pro. Kenny, an Arizona State senior, staged the biggest comeback. He won the tenth and eleventh holes with pars, birdied No. 13 and evened the match with a six-foot par putt on No. 15. He chipped within four feet on No. 16 and Haire conceded the hole after going into the rough twice. They halved the last two holes. Bean turned 2-up and led by three going to N6. 16. Byman held him off by taking the sixteenth when Bean bogeyed. But they halved No. 17 with pars to end it. Ridley's victory avenged a first-round defeat this summer to Strange in the Western Amateur, which eventually was won by Bean. Ridley took a 3-up lead Friday at the seventh hole and never let Strange get qloser than one hole. Boyajian, who rarely play outside his home area, won the first three holes on the back nine after turning 1 up and nev er was in trouble. Loeffler turned 3 up and never was in trouble against Price, who had upset British Amateur champion Vinny Giles in the second round.

ISU SEARCHES FOR KICKERS The Register's Iowa News Service AMES, IA. —.Iowa State's football team went through a light 90-minute workout Friday, stressing the kicking game. The Cyclones are trying to find replacements for graduated punter Scott Bradley and kicker Tom Goedjen. Sophomore Scott Coleman of Cedar Falls and senior Doug Lenth of Postville are fighting for the kicking position, while there are no clear-cut leaders for the punting job. A light practice is set this morning with a scrimmage at 1:30 p.m. in the new stadium. lowans lead in U.S. rodeo CHEYENNE, WYO. (AP) — Dennis Lawrence of Glenwood, la., and Ted Frederick of Sioux City took leads after the first go-round of the Little Britches National Rodeo Friday. Lawrence led the junior boys Hawks lose vet Salter, frosh Danzy The Register's Iowa News lervlce IOWA CITY, IA. - Iowa's football team lost two more players, defensive backs Bob Salter and Charles Danzy, it was disclosed Friday. Salter, a two-year letterman, has missed the past two practices with a pulled trapezius muscle on his shoulder. It i: not known how long he will be sidelined. Leaves for Home Danzy, a freshman from Massillon, Ohio, has left the Hawk- eyes and returned home to dea! with family problems. Danzy has indicated he would return once the regular season begins. Meanwhile, the second week of practice ended in a heavy rain, with the coaches looking forward to today's scrimmage. "We're still looking for players," Coach Bob Commings said. "We need a few in sive line positions and in the defensive line also." Pleased With Secondary Defensive Coach Larry Coye said his defense will try i "stop 'em from running in today's scrimmage." He was alluding to a 40-yard touchdown scamper by running back Jim Jensen in Wednesday's scrimmage. Coyer expressed satisfaction with the, defensive secondary. He said junior Roger Stech of Perry appears to be a starter, leaving Rick Penney, Bob El- Mott, Jim Caldwell and Shanty Burks — all returning lettermen — fighting for the remaining positions.

I CINCINNATI, OHIO (AP) — Reducing the number of exhibition football games is merely a matter of dollars and cents, according to C i n c i n - nati Bengals Coach Paul Brown. "You can have all the words and talk and di.s- PAUL cussion, but it BROWN will all be dedded by economics and they're closing in fast," said Brown, in discussing a suggestion by Edward Bennett Williams, president of the Washington Redskins, to cut back on the number of pro exhibitions and add to the regular season schedule. Brown said Williams' suggestion "is no new thought. The reason for Williams saying this is they aren't doing well in exhibition games." said Brown, referring to attendance figures for the preseason. Don't Need 7 The Brngals play s^yen exhibitions this year because of their appearance in the Pro Football Hall of Fame game. "In our case, we don't need seven games," Brown said. "We could do very well with three or four or even two.

Roche, 30, a strong-hitting left-hander, was one of the world's best players until he was stricken with arm trouble in 1971. But it wasn't Tony's arm, it was Fillol's persistence and c o u r t-covering consistency which proved Roche's undoing. "I think I took him by surprise," Fillol said. "When he started forcing me it was too late. It was 5-0. I don't think I ever let him get his rhythm.' Never in Match Richey, reknowned as one of the game's most determined competitors and always formidable on clay, also never got nto the match against Ernie Dibbs. 'I didn't miss a shot — I lave never played better in my ife," Dibbs said. "Richey is a ;ood clay court player but I seemed to have the answer for iverything he did." It was a day of one-sided re- ;ults. Bjorn Borg, the sensational 9-year-old Swede who is seed- d No. 5, breezed to a 6-0, 6-2 /ictory over Mike Estep of Dalas, Tex. Borg won 10 games before letting Estep on the Scoreboard.

(AP) Bill Kilmer and Randy Johnson each threw two touchdown passes Friday night as Washington crushed Detroit, 34-13, in a National Football League exhibition. The veteran Redskin defense, aided by three interceptions, kept the Lions in their own territory most of the game. A small crowd of 17,304 in the 54,747-seat Robert F. Kennedy Stadium also got a good look at the running of Redskins' rookie Mike Thomas and the speed of wide receiver-kick returner i,arry Jones, a second-year man from Northeast Missouri State. Both scored touchdowns. Kilmer, connecting on five of six passes for 99 yards, threw a one-yard touchdown pass to tight end Alvin Reed and hit Jones on a 55-yarder. Johnson, who replaced Joe Theismann after an interception, threw touchdown passes of 19 and 23 yards to wide receiver Dan Abramowicz. Johnson completed five of seven for 86 yards. Thomas, a fifth-round choice from Nevada-Las Vegas, picked up 62 yards in 14 carries and scored the first Washington touchdown on a six-yard run. tCORINO Jttrajt • 7 J £-1J Wash—Thomas t run (kick failed) Wash-Reed 1 BBSS from Kilmer (Mostly Wasfi—Jones 55 pass from Kilmer Det-Jervlt 5 oass from Landry (Mann kick) Wash-Abramowlcz 1» pass from Johnson (Mosely kick) Wash—Abramowicz 23 pass from Johnson oWchWrun (pas, failed) A—17,304 Hanson, Mount Vernon strong BUT BOTH LEAGUE POWERS EXPECT CHALLENGES Manson has won or shared the Twin Lakes Conference football title the past three years and Mount Vernon has taken two straight Eastern Iowa Hawkeye crowns while finishing second and first in the state Class 2A playoffs. Will they continue the domination of their respective conferences, or will new faces forge to the front? Both should be strong' again, but there seems to be strong challenges facing their bids to repeat. First, let's look at the Eastern Iowa Hawkeye. COACH JIM BELLAMY is optimistic at Mount Vernon, saying "we have as good a chance of winning the title as anyone." He's resting his hopes on 14 lettermen, only two of them — tackle David Vislisel and guard Steve Broke! — regulars off last year's 10-0 club.. However, he feels size in the line and backfield quickness will carry the Mustangs to another good season. Solon and West Branch also are talking title and most of the coaches feel Mid-Prairie of Wellman will be a dark- horse contender. Twelve starters are among 15 lettermen at Solon, where PREP PARADE By Chuck Burdick U,S, Open tennis Men's Singles SECOND ROUND Jaime Fillol, Chile, beat Tony Roche, Australia, 6-0, 6-2.

More Money Pro football teams make more money from exhibition games than regular season games because the players aren't getting full salary, Browrrobserved. "The players union must realize you can't raise salaries forever without getting it back somewhere," Brown said. Brown estimated the average player salary in the National Football League now is about $50.000, which comes to about $3,500 per game. Two extra games would add $300,000 to a team's season payroll, if the union insisted nn the added salary per game, Brown said. fi.

In another womens match. Martina Navratilova of Czechoslovakia, seeded No. 3, survived a hard match against JoAnne Russell of Naples. Fla.. finally winning, 6-2, 3-6. 6-2. Ed Hansen had a 6-2 record last fall. Hansen returns his entire offensive line and the secondary is composed of veterans who intercepted 17 passes last year. There's inexperience at quarterback, but the remainder of the backfield looks good, led by John Donovan, the loop's No. 2 scorer last fall. Roger Hansen returns to the head job at West Branch, a position he held from 196268, and has six regulars among nine lettermen. Hansen, who has been the frosh- soph coach in recent years, can pick from talent off those clubs which have dominated the loop in recent years. Mid-Prairie was runner-up last fall, finishing 6-1 in the league and Coach John Strain has 14 lettermen, headed by tailback Kevin Kos, who led the loop in rushing and scoring as a sophomore. Clear Creek of Tiffin should be the league's most improved team. It didn't win a game last fall, but has 15 letter winners returning. MANSON AND Pocahontas shared the Twin Lakes Conference title last fall and those two, along with Twin Rivers of Bode, are considered the top contenders. Manson's John Haack has 18 lettermen and an experienced backfield, but must replace his top linebackers. The offense will again center around halfback Duane Cirks, who rushed for 1,194 yards in '74. The Eagles have lots of size up front with Marty Hart (215) and Jim Grieser (235) at defensive tackle and Ncls Rosendhal (220) at defensive end. Offensive tackle Dave Ranthum checks in at 220. If Coach Roger Lounsbery can strengthen his running ame Twin Rivers of Bode should be able to match offenses with anyone. Greg Lempke, a unanimous all- conference choice as a junior, is back at quarterback and so is his prime receiver, end Rich Kinseth. A key to Pocahontas' success should be Rod Stoulil, who was sidelined much of last year with a knee injury. However, he was one of the Indians' leading ground gainers two years ago and has been impressive in early drills. The rest of the league looks balanced with a slight edge to Albert City-Truesdale, which returns a pair of all- conference players, center Gary Allen and two-way tackle Allan Nordine, among nine lettermen. Improvement is the goal at Rockwell City, where Ron Bunkers has 14 lettermen. The offense will be centered around junior quarterback Craig Hildreth and fullback Rich Lange. Ten lettermen are on hand at Rolfe, including seven starters. At Laurens, new Coach Tim Hoffman lists seven starters , but will have a young squad, with 31 of the 42 candidates either freshmen or sophomores. G i 1 m o r e City-Bradgale didn't win a game last fall, but should improve with eight starters among 15 lettermen. Dave Cirks is back at quarterback and Ron Marchant, last year's top rusher, returns at halfback.

Other bowlers over 600 were Lonnie Wright (635), Roger Huston (612), Dick Bergman (611), Bud Wilson (611), Bill Smith (606) and Jack Forest (603).
