Of the eight Wimbledon seeds who started in the tournament, the last warmup event before the big one, only Australians Rod Laver and John Newcombe reached quarter-finals. Three other Wimbledon seeds — Clark Graebner of New York, Tom Okker of the Netherlands and Roger Taylor of Britain — were tumbled out Tuesday. Queen's Club traditionally produces surprises, but the results have been an embarrassment to the Wimbledon seeding committee. Wimbledon starts next Monday. Marty Riessen of Evanston, 111., who is not seeded for Wimbledon, beat Smith, of Los Angeles, 10-8 6-2. Ralston, of Bakersfield, Calif., served a crop of double faults and went out to Georges Govern of France, 4-6, 8-«, 8-6. Dick Crealy, the lanky Australian, downed Drysdale, 6-4, 6-1. Smith, the U.S. No. 1, had trouble with his service early in the match against Riessen. He double-faulted to lose the first game. Smith broke back to level at 44 but Riessen was in good form and was always threatening to break through again. Smith held on to his service after tailing 0-0 in the ninth game and 15-40 in the 15th. In the 17th Riessen floated a cunning backhand return across the court and broke Smith's service. Smith never was able to come back again. Ralston was brilliant but erratic against Govern. The American double-faulted four times in one game and three times in another. He came back and managed to win both those games, and was poised for victory when he served at 6-5 in the second set. But in that game Ralston missed an easy smash, double-faulted and finally fluffed a half-volley and the little Frenchman was back in the match. Ralston went on double- faulting in almost every service game. Serving to save the match at 6-7 in the final set, the American hit one more double-fault and then carelessly netted a volley and a half-volley. Riessen was joined in the quarterfinals by two other Americans, Charlie Pasarell of Santurce, P.R., and Cliff Richey of San Angelo, Tex. Pasarell came from behind in the final set to defeat Owen Davidson, the Australian left-hander, 6-4, 4-6, 9-7. Richey won comfortably, beating Jaidip Mukerjea of India, 6-2, 7-5. CHASKA, Minn. (AP) - As golfers gathered for the 70th United States Open golf championship at Hazeltine National, memories of Opens past were revived again and again. Among the most vividly remembered is the story of Bobby Cruickshank, tied for the lead on the llth hole of the final round at Merion Cricket Club in 1934. Cruickshank drove his approach shot to the green and watched it bounce into nearby water. But the ball bounced out of the water and on the green after striking a rock. He was so delighted, he threw his club in the air and said, "thank you, Lord." The club landed on his '2 GEN FEES Enjoy more relaxed golf on a superb championship 18-hole course in the shadows of the McDowell Mountains. • $2 weekday green feel • $3 on weekends & holiday!

Again at Merlon in 1950, Lloyd Mangrum was assessed a two-stroke penalty on the 16th hole when he picked up his ball to blow off an Insect. Mangrum was one stroke behind eventual champion Ben Hogan at the time. At Southern Hills In 1958, Tommy Bolt's second shot on the second hole landed in a spectator's shirt pocket. After dropping, he finished with a five. On the final hole of the 1937 tournament at Oakland Country Club, Ralph Guldahl paused to comb his hair before putting in his last shot to beat Sam Snead by two strokes. Tony Manero holed a chip shot oh the last hole of sectional qualifying to make the 1936 open. He was the eventual champion. Ray Ainsley took a record 19 strokes on the 397-yard 16th hole at Cherry Hills in 1938, most coming when he tried to get his ball out of a creek. The most recent anecdote comes from the 1969 Open when President Nixon called Orville Moody with congratulations and complimented him that it wasn't often that a man could spend 14 years in the Army and then come out to win the title. "I'm the only one," Moody said. LONDON — Tennis stars Frew McMillan of South Africa and Alexander Metreveli of Russia swapped insults and a woman umpire walked off the court during a match at the London Grass Court Championships at Queen's Club yesterday. McMillan won the stromy match 9-7, 6-4. The trouble started over a disputed line call at 6-6 in the first set. As the two men changed LEASE A 1970 Volkswagen FOR AS LOW AS SC495 54 Per Me.
