IAP) - A diaputo over a bigger puree, a satellite tournament, caddies, and television restrictions has placed the $115,000 Champtona International Golf Tournament in Jeopardy! Bob Rule, executive secretary of the sponsoring Houston Golf Association, said the tournament players division of the PGA should compromise on the mat- tors but has refused to do so. Champions has been one of the most successful tournaments financially on the PGA tour in recent years and uses its profits for such projects as scholarships and junior golf programs. "The situation is fairly serious/* Rule said Tuesday. "It involves points we feel are causing us to lose control of our destiny. There is pressure for more money, more this, and more everything. It involves the tournament players division and not the PGA itself. In fact, the PGA does not support some of the demands mat are being made of us." Rule said one critical point is mat some of the demands would require a switch to commercial sponsorship of the tournament, something he said Jack Burke and Jimmy Demaret, owners of the exclusive Champions Goli Club, "would not permit Rule said that in addition to a larger purse, Joseph C. Dey Jr., commissioner of the players division, wants a satellite tournament witti prize money of $10,000 or $25,000. Without this, Rule said, Champions would lose its invitational status.

Lemon has been serving as pitching coach under Metro. His appointment was for the remainder of the 1970 season. Terms were not disclosed. Announcement of the change in managers was made at a news conference which Metro did not attend. Cedric Tallis, the club's vice president and general manager told newsmen a few hours before the Royals, back from a disastrous 1-8 road trip, opened a 12-game home stand Tuesday night against the Washington Senators. Tallis said the change was "necessary to put us in a position where we could improve Touching All The Bases With Stan Goldberg Fa/eons Sfarf Early THE FREDERICK FALCONS are wasting no time in their efforts to recapture the Interstate Football League title this year. Accordingto a letter sent out to the players by coach Dick Shipley, the Falcons will begin practice July 8, a week earlier than last year and several days before the Major League All-Star game. Actually training for rookies will begin July 6 with the veterans due two days later. The first game is scheduled August 15 in Cumberland. The regular season will end Nov. 14 with the Divisional Playoffs Nov. 21-22 and the Championship game Nov. 28. * * * "DESPITE THE RUMORS I know of no one that is not coming back except for Hugh Wyatt," Shipley said in a phone interview. Wyatt, a defensive back, has been named general manager and coach of the Hagerstown Bears. "Randolph is out of the Army and I expect him to join its again," Shipley continued referring to wide receiver Wayne Randolph who was the IFL's answer to Charley Taylor last year. Randolph entered the armed forces late last year but received a medical discharge because of a problem with his skin that prevented him from shaving. The Falcons will also have running back Mike Bowie returning after a six month stint in the army. Bowie was the Falcons top rusher last year and one of the best in the league. ourselves. I firmly believe we have the capability to improve our performance over the balance of the season." Metro, 51, managed the team o only 19 victories in 52 games, leaving the Royals in fifth place h games behind the division eading Minnesota Twins and games ahead of last-place Milwaukee. Two weeks ago, Metro blamed injuries for part of the club's poor showing and asserted that "people have pushed the panic button. We will win our share from here on in. I've finally gotten to our pitchers. . ." Metro was in his first season as skipper of the 2-year-old Royals, who became one of the league's expansion teams in 1969. He succeeded Joe Gordon, former New York Yankee star, who stepped down after one season. Gordon managed the Roy. als to fourth place with a 69-93 record. As a major league player, Metro was with the Detroit Tigers for I 1 /? years and for a similar period with the old Philadelphia Athletics. He was a minor league manager for 15 years · * * ALONG WITH REGULAR season play, Shipley says he hopes to play a benefit exhibition game sponsored by the Kiwanis Club August 1. "I talked to officials with the Washington Pa., Generals and they might come down," Shipley said. "I've also made contacts with several other non- league teams. I tried to schedule a league exhibition game but could not find a team available." Earlier in the year Wyatt said he hoped to schedule the Bears against the Falcons in an exhibition game, but that Apparently has fallen through. When they get the letter most of the Falcons will look to the November 14 game.with keen interest though it's the last contest of the season. That's when Frederick meets Chambersburg, The Cardinals upset Frederick for the league crown last year. But the Falcons have 13 games and a long practice season before thattiate. . 1970 SCHEDULE August 15 at Cumberland Oct. 3 York August 22 at Schuylkill August 29 at Hanover Sept. 5 Hagerstown Sept. 12 Westminster Sept.l9Waynesboro.

Tallis said Metro has the, option to remain with the Kansas City organization "in some capacity." He paid tribute to Metro as a "real professional," Lemon, 49, succeeded Mel Harder, his old coach at Cleve» land, as pitching coach with the Royals at the start of this season. Harder retired from coaching. Lemon had a brilliant career with the Indians, being named pitcher of the year in 1948, 1950 and 1954.

The column will run again Friday. Spires Take On Pioneers Tonight Frederick Spires Jack Patterson is somewhat in the dark as his team meets the D. C. Pioneers, tonight at Cabin JohnField. It is the first of four games for the local club in five days. "I really don't know anything about the Pioneers," he said. "I haven't seen them play and don't know what they can do." Patterson also isn't sure who he will start on the mound in the Maryland Industrial League contest. "It will either be Don Neel or Jerry Ricucci," he said. Both are lefthanders. Brunswick Meets Bruce Brunswick is scheduled to meet Bruce in the class B-C Baseball Finals at Frostburg State College today at 2 p.m. The game was originally scheduled Saturday, but postponed because of wet grounds. He does plan some changes in the infield despite a 10-3 win over Atlantic Masonry last Sunday. For one thing, Greg Englar, who pitched the game, might be at short. "It will either be he or Ron Milenko," Patterson said. "I might move Patterson over to second in place of Milenko," Jack Patterson said. The Spire manager also said he might start Wayne Analt at third over Jim Snoots. The Frederick team has lost the services until July of shortstop Gary O'Bryan who played there in Sunday's game. It was the only game he has played with the Spires. He will have to take some courses in summer school at Middle Tennessee College and won't be in the area again for a month. Scott Silver will takeover for Bob Allison at first. Allison hurt his back in a fielding play Sunday.

The sale will become final Thursday, in another hearing before .Judge Robert H. Schnacke. It also is dependent on the NHL's Board of Governors approving the transfer of the franchise from Trans- National Communications, Inc., of New York to Finley. Trans-National went to court to try to retain control of the team after the original owners announced their intention to resell the Seals. The original owners, a group headed by Barry Van Gerbig of West Palm Beach, Fla., contended Trans-National defaulted on loans connected with the sale made last year.

Sandy Alomar doubled to open the inning, chasing Orioles starter Dave McNally aiming for his 10th victory. Brooks Robinson had a solo homer in the seventh while McNally added a two-run blast in the fifth. Meanwhile the vision of Paul Blair, the ailing center fielder of the Baltimore Orioles, was declared normal Tuesday by Dr. Herman Goldberg, the team's eye specialist. Blair was examined one day following his return from California, where he had been hospitalized a week after being struck by a pitch from Ken Tatum of the California Angels. Blair suffered multiple frac- tures of the nose and the orbital floor bone below the left eye, a broken cheek bone. He was bothered by double vision until an operation was performed to insert a plastic support which holds a muscle under the eye in place. Stitches are to be removed from Blair's face Saturday, but he is not expected to .begin working out for about two more weeks. Detroit s Denny Me La in Petitions For Bankruptcy DETROIT (AP) -Admitting unsecured claims of about $400,000 suspended Detroit Tigers pitcher Denny McLain filed for bankruptcy Tuesday. William Aikens, McLain's attorney, said the bankruptcy petition was filed in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Detroit after the pitcher was advised by Aikens there appeared to be no other route. Aikens, saying McLain has virtually no assets, said he advised McLain that "bankruptcy was the only course which would enable him to straighten out his tangled finances." McLain, who won 31 games for the Tigers in 1968, had invested in a number of businesses which Aikens said are of questionable value now. Aikens said $275,000 of the unsecured claims against McLain STAFFORD PITCHES SALES NEW YORK (AP)-Bill Stafford, former pitcher for the New York Yankees, Oakland Athletics and Chicago White Sox, has retired from the mound at the age of 31 to become a salesman.

He is assistant to vice president George de Lucia. are contested by the pitcher, who is scheduled to return to the Tigers on July 1 after a three-month suspension for alleged involvement in gambling. Aikens said it appears unlike* ly that any of McLain'e creditors will receive much in view of the pitcher's poor financial shape.

Miller Contradicts Kuhn . NEW YORK (Aft - Marvin ·Mll«r, executive director of the Major League Players Association, contradicted earlier testimony by Baseball Commission* er Bowie Kuhn when he was called as a rebuttal witness in the Curt Flood case Tuesday. The question that provoked Miller's response was put to him by Flood's attorney, Jay Topkis, who referred to testimony by Kuhn and John Gaherin, the owners* labor negotiator, that Flood's suit had halted discussion aimed at modifying the controversial reserve system. Asked if that conformed with his opinion, Miller said: "No, U does not There was no difference whatsoever in discussions before news that Curt Flood intended to file suit or aft* en" Miller also contradicted a statement made by Gaherin that the Players Association had asked that discussions be discontinued for fear Flood's .court case would be harmed. Miller contended, instead, that he had told the owners' representatives: "If we were able to agree on revisions the plaintiff Flood would withdraw his suit The statement Gaherin's was completely inaccurate- it was quite the reverse. We said if there were appropriate amendments there would be no action." Topkis pushed the point of the owners" position on modifying the reserve system- which binds a player to the club that signs him until he is traded, sold or released-by putting two other, questions to Miller. "During 'your negotiations, has there been any collective bargaining (by the owners) on the reserve system?" Topkis asked. "No," replied Miller. "Has management proposed any modification of the system?" Topkis then asked. "No," Miller replied again. Miller's rebuttal testimony was considered important to the ?3 million antitrust suit in which Flood contends that the reserve system is illegal and operated in restraint of trade. He was publicly called for modification of the system. Miller's testimony came after cross-examination of economist Dr. John Clarke was completed by Topkis. The defense then rested. Topkis said Miller was the next-to-last witness for Flood, with former club owner Bill Veeck closing out testimony Wednesday.
