Tell Pro Exhibition Schedule NEW YORK (AP) - Use of an experimental conversion rule, the first match on foreign soil in eight years and 23 inter- league games highlight the 68- game preseason schedule of fhe National Football League and the American Football League. The Philadelphia Eagles will lake on the Detroit Lions Aug. 11 in the 105,000-seat Aztec Stadium in Mexico City. Only one other NFL game—between New York and Chicago in Toronto in 1960—has been played outside the United Slates. The interleague matches will serve as an experiment for the proposed conversion rule. In place of the regular conversion kick, the teams will have an option of either running or passing from the two-yard line for one point after each louchdown. Study Results Results will be sludied to determine if the rule should be adopted for regular league games. Six exhibitions will be televised nationally, including the Green-Bay-College All-Stars game at Chicago Aug. 3. ABC- TV will carry the Packers-All Stars, with CBS-TV handling the others, including the Mexico Cily game. Other TV games will be Chicago vs. Green Bay at Milwaukee, Mon., Aug. 19; Green Bay at Dallas, Sat., Aug. 24; Minnesota at St. Louis, Sun., Sept. 1; and Baltimore at Dallas, Sat., Sept. 7. , Play NFL Foe All 10 AFL teams, including new entry Cincinnati, will play at least one NFL foe. Only three NFL teams—New York, Chicago and Green Bay—won't play teams from the AFL. A proposed game between the Giants and the New York Jets fell through because of the unavailability of Shea Stadium, home of the Jets. The AFL's regular season opens Sept. 6-8, and the NFL opens its campaign the following weekend.

By GEOFFREY MILLER Associated press Sports Writer WIMBLEDON, England (AP) — The United Stales Davis Cup trio—Arthur Ashe, Clark Graeg- ner and Coach Dennis Ralston —are storming on in the hunt for the Wimbledon tille. "I'm a grcal believer in lo- getherness," said Donald Dell, Ihe Davis Cup team's nonplay- ing captain from Bethesda, Md. "Did you see our boys applauding when Ashe was healing John Newcombe out there? Clark Graebner, Charlie Pasa- rell and Dennis Ralslon were all al Ihe side of Ihe court leading th cheers. Beat Professionals Ashe and Graebner both vanquished professionals Monday lo reach the quarter-finals. Ashe, of Richmond, Va., downed Newcombe, the defending champion, 6-4, 6-4, 4-6, 1-6, 6-3. Graebner, from New York Cily, upset Australia's Fred Stolle 6-1, 7-5, 7-5. Ralslon, from Bakersfield, Calif., who can no longer play on Ihe Davis Cup team because he's a professional, swept aside Alexander Metreveli of Russia 6-3, 7-5, 6-2. A fourth American went into the quarter-finals—professional Earl Buchholz of St. Louis, who vanquished Bob Hewitt of South Africa 6-4, 3-6, 6-2, 6-2. Today's Pairings The experts were trying to remember when four Americans last made the final eight of Wimbledon. It's so far back nobody could fix the year from memory. Today Ashe had to play Tom Okker, the Dutch amateur who has already cleaned up the South African and Italian titles this year. Graebner faced Ray Moore of South Africa in Ihe semifinals. Moore—the man who beat Spanish pro Andres Gimeno—eliminated Tom Edlefsen of Berkeley, Calif., in a five setter Monday. Ralston met Australian pro Rod Laver, top favorite for the title. Buchholtz played anolher Aus- Iralian pro, Tony Roche. Amboy Wins 3-2 In Legion Play AMBOY — Amboy defeated Mount Carroll here Sunday 3-2 in District 13 American Legion play.

For instance, all eight finalists in the 100- meter dash of the Olymipc trials on Saturday were Negroes. Added to the squad were two Cau- casions, Jerry Bright of Arizona Stale and Larry Questad, former NCAA champion from Stanford. Ace hurdler Earl McCullouch of Southern California and distance star Gerry Lindgren of Washington State were given new leases on Olympic life after faltering in the trials. McCullouch, who still may sign to play professional football with Detroit, tripped over the final hurdle and finished seventh in his only losing race of the year. Lindgren was forced out of the gruelling 10,000 meter race Sunday wth Achilles tendon injury. Good Player Avoids Unnecessary Finesse One object of good play is to avoid taking unnecessary finesses. It's easy to turn your back on a finesse for Ihe king or queen of a key suil, bul you don'l often have the problem of refusing to finesse against an eight-spot. West opens the king of clubs, and you win in dummy with the ace. Now you can cash the other two side aces and bring Ihe game home by crossruffing — if you can win seven Irump tricks. The danger is that one opponent has a singleton club and the other has a singleton diamond. If you are both careless and unlucky you may ruff the second round of clubs or diamonds and find thai Ihe next opponent overruffs and returns a trump. This would limit you to .six trump tricks, and you would be down one. Ruffing with dummy's six or with your own seven is a type of finesse. Your ruff will be safe if Ihe eight of hearts is held by second-hand rather than oy fourth-hand. You would take ,his type of finesse if you had to, but this is the type of hand n which the finesse is unneces- Gun Amnesfy Period Nets 234 Weapons NEW YORK (API - A month-long gun amnesty period, which began a few days prior to the assassination of Sen.

Olympic conditions will be simulated during these trials. Cash all three of the side aces and ruff a diamond with the nine of hearls. Then ruff a club with the ten of hearts. Continue to ruff diamonds and clubs with high trumps, thus adding six trump tricks to the three side aces. With the first nine tricks safely stashed away, you can then lead a club or a diamond (depending on which hand has the lead) and ruff in the opposite hand with the six or seven of trumps. Either the six or the seven of trumps is sure to win trick, and your game is therefore quite safe.
