Greene Steele r By Hi meet his terms "I'd rather play for $10 a duck uuwu iiny wnnor on the rnoiipy I'm IheStecler'sNo. 1 draft choice this year. "I think they've used me," said Greene in a telephone interview at his Denton ( Tex.) home. "They should either pay me or trade me." How much money docs the 6-l'oot-4, 274-pound defensive specialist want? "I'd prefer to keep that private," he said, "but Ml tell you this. I've ulreaily cut my price in half. But they (the Steelers) are not giving me a chance to get a decent salary." ; The Steelers offer is a mystery, too, but fircone said at one point Pittsburgh added $30,000 to its package. But with it, lie said, they tacked on another year to the contract. Greene said he has not talked to Stecler Owner Dan Hooney since March, but is letting Bucky Woy handle the money talks. And that, said Greene, is another hinderance. "The pro teams try to give you a hard time if you have an arnt. A guv shouH have a choice , . . It's just like having a lawyer," he said. Greene also hinted he thinks the Steelers deliberately delayed contract talks so he couldn't play in last night's All-Star game at Chicago. "I really wanted to play," he said, "but if I got hurt with no contract, then they'd never sign me. "I think they thought about the All-Star game when they refused my last offer," he added. But Terry Hanralty and Jon Den McLain Takes 16lli, Toji i)s Chisox DETROIT, Aug. 1 (AP) -Denny McLain, just out of the hospital, scattered six hits in becoming the major leagues' first 16-gamc winner as the Detroit Tigers whipped the Chicago Wihte Sox, 8-0, tonight. McLain (16-6) was hospitalized Wednesday with bronchitis but was released Thursday. He did not allow an extra base hit as he chalked up his 15th complete game and seventh shutout of the season. Tom Matchick drove in four runs with a double and single, pacing the Tigers' 10-hit attack.

Greene, a slim, drawling blond who keeps his emotions under tight rein, was eight under par for two trips over the rolling 6,677-yard par 72 Westchester Country Club course and held a one-stroke lead in his quest for his first victory, which, in this case, carries a $50,000 purse.

He was tied at that figure with Dan Sikes, who had a 67. Bert Yancey, with 68, Australian Bruce Devlin, 72, and Tom Weiskopf, 70 were in the group at 139. - Struggling Arnold Palmer, a non-winner for more than a year, had a 74 for 145.

SIRES STAKES Nevele Rascal Easy Winner By JIMMY JORDAN pnst-Ga-ctle Sports Writer MEADOW LANDS, Pa., Aug. 1 Nevele Rascal never had it so easy before, and may not have it so easy again. The two-year-old son of Stars Pride, who Stanley Dancer hopes may approach the greatness of his brother Neville Pride, trotted home with ridiculous ease to win the $20,165 Pennsyl- vania Sires Stakes for two- year-old colts at the Meadows tonight. He was six lengths in front as he trotted under the wire, eased up. Dancer started from the fifth post, moved out in front immediately and paced the field all the way except for a short time when Backfire Hanover (Cecil Champion) took over coming onto the stretch the first time. Stanley just let "The Rascal" out a bit and he was back in front heading into the turn for the half-mile pole. He just sat there until only a quarter remained when Dancer let him go, and he steadily pulled away. Meanwhile, John Simpson's Timothy T. came from fifth to take second, ahead of Paris Air. "The Rascal" will remain at The Meadows to train for next Thursday 's Arden Downs Stake for two-year-old trotting colts, one of the grand circuit events. Nevele Bigshot, the two-year-old Dancer Hanover colt making his racing debut, turned out to be a big disappointment to the railbirds who had bet him down to 2-5. The colt, who brought a record $115,000 at the yearling sales last fall, didn't want to get into the gate to begin with, and a restart was ordered. Stanley Dancer got him away from the gate nicely from the two-hole, pulled him to the rail and let the early-goers go for the first quarter. Then he moved into first place on the front stretch, but when the field made a run at him after the first half, he couldn't answer Dancer's urging. lie was in sixth place at the top of the stretch, but managed to pull up to fifth, 5Mi lengths back of Betty's Baby, a four-year-old mare owned and driven by George Young, Jr., of Adena, O., a $25.40 winner. Of the $21,319 wagered on the race, 65 per cent was on Nevele Bigshot. North Hills Speedway will try once more to run its mid-season championship race tonight, and in addition will hold a Powder Puff Derby with the gals doing the driving. Rain again prevented the race last Saturday. Already 20 ladles arc signed to drive In the Powder Puff Derby, Chuck Ford of Cranberry Township continues to lead the point parade at North Hills with 25.1, followed by Bob Mayer, Glbsonia, with 216. A T T. Scramble motorcycle race will be held tomorrow afternoon starting at Lo'clock at Murrysville Raceway. State s A. He was taken Into the Hall of Fame in 19lil). He was at Lebanon, Ind., high school before going to Purdue in 1916. T.R. asks: Where did Babe Ruth hit a homer that was supposed to have traveled 600 feet? A. In .Detroit during the 1926 season. Send your questions to Dispatch Features, Inc., ,"4 South Third St., Columbus, O. 43216. " After the race, a discouraged dancer said he might not race "Bigshot" again as a two-year-old. "He hasn't been living up to our expectations for a colt that cost so much," he said. "We may just turn him out to pasture and give it a try again next year." The 7-3 combination of Ace Admiral ($28.40) in the first race, and Foxey Phil in the second returned a daily double payoff of $124.60. Second Meadows Meet Rumored MEADOW LANDS, Pa., Aug. 1 Rumors that new harness-racing franchise would be granted a Western Pennsylvania groun, and that The Meadows would start another 62-nipht meeting soon after this one closes, continued to spread here tonight. Nothing could be pinned dov n. however.

A -Post Gajette Pholo Gene Mingo, 3 Draftees Off Squad By JACK SELL Posl-Cazette Sports Writer LATROBE, P., Aug. 1 -Six Steelers were sliced from the training camp roster here this afternoon as Coach Chuck Noll reduced his squad to the 60 limit required on this date by NFL rules. Three of the gridders were drafted last January End Joe Cooper from Tennessee- A & I, No. 6; Halfback Dock Mosley from Alcorn A & M, No. 16; and Placekicker Bill Eppright from Kent State, No. 17. . The other trio included Gene Mingo, a veteran of the pro wars who didn't attend college but was a placekicking specialist in both the AFL and NFL; and a pair of free agents, End Erwin Williams from Maryland State, and Tackle Earl Price from Kent Slate. Mingo pulled a hamstring muscle in his left leg a few days ago and hasn't been on the gridiron since that unfortunate experience. It's believed he will get another chance when the injury heals if he's not claimed by some other club. Gene was trying a comeback after failing to stick with the New Orleans Saints of the NFL last year. All holdover Steelers from the 2-11-1 record array of last season thus survived this important cut. Next deadline is Monday, Sept. 1, when the NFL squads must be down to 49. On Monday, Sept. 8. they fall to 44, and on Monday, Sept. 15, the permanent figure of 40 is reached. Another big crowd is expected for tomorrow afternoon's scrimmage session. Coach Noll will continue his camp routine with a morning drill at 10 o'clock and a matinee session starting at 3:30. The head-knocking climaxes the afternoon practice and if it follows the pattern of last Wednesday's rough stuff it will be worth the trip to the St. Vincent College campus. Jf CLEAT PRINTS - Plans are about completed for the annual Stcelcr Alumni game on Saturday night, Aug. 9, at Jeanncttc High stadium. . . . Drum and Bugle Corps will perform before the grid action and at the intermission. . . . The revised roster of clubhouse boys includes Tim Fo-garty, Bill McCartney.

And Carol, along with Sandy, was only a semi-finalist in the recent 1969 State Girls Junior. Sandy also was runnerup in the Women's West Penn and Western Golf Association Girls Junior last year. The golf in the morning round was not ip to the stcri ling type produced earlier in Iht week hut one n.ust re member it was their fifth straight day of play. Carol, three-putting only once, won four holes to Sandy's two to go 2 up on the first nine. Sandy three-putted four times and used 22 putts for the nine greens. Carol dropped the 10th to Sandy's par four but won the 11th with a 16-footcr for a birdie deuce, the 13th with a 15-footer for a birdie four and the 14th with a par four as Sandy bunkered her second shot. Miss Semple went down to 3 up with a bad lie in the rough forcing a safe second shot at No. 15 but she got it back with an orthodox par three at the 180-yard 17th. Sandy then cut the margin to three at lunchtime with a birdie four on the 480-yard 18th as Carol hit her second into the creek for a bogey six. Miss Burns won the first hole in the afternoon (19th) with a par four but then lost the 20th, 22nd, 23rd and 24th as her irons and putter went very sour. She took five to hit the green on the 420-yard 20th three-putted to lose the 425-yard 22nd after having a 30 -yard edge from the tee, hit an iron into a bunker to drop the 23rd and chipped woefully to lose the 24th. Both messed up the short 25th for ' bogey fives. Sandy delayed the finish by winning the 27th with a par four as she hit the green of the 390-yard stretch in two. But irons hooked into bunkers cost her the next two as her foe parred the 28th and rammed in an 18-footer for another deuce on the 29th. When they halved the next one in pars it was all over. Both expect to play in the U. S. Women's Amateur then it's on to college for both. Carol will be a senior at Hol-lins in Virginia and Sandy will be a freshman at Rollins in Florida. Carol's mother, Mrs. II. S. Semple, was the last player from this corner of the state to win this tourney in 1964.
