12 N«rtW«« ArUma* T1MCS, Thun., May M, 1974 AHKAMUIS For Eastern New Mexico Distance Men Important ARKADELPHIA. Ark. (AP) -- To Bill Silverberg. disUnc* runners are like blue-chip ilocks--the return is consistent. Little wonder that Silverberg. a Former distance runner at Kansas University, has built his Eastern New Mexico t r a c k team around distance runners. "The sprints go too quick," he said. "A nick of an eyelash end somebody slips in there. In the distance events, there is a lot more time to make up for bad Ihings." f e n d i n g champion Texas Southern California College and ri- ftnding champion Texas Southern are among the favorites in the national NAIA track and field m«t that begins here today. Silver-berg has contenders in the 880-yard run, the mile, the three-mitc, the six-mile and the 3,000-meter steeplechase. "We're going to have to double and triple our runners," Silverberg said. For instance. Silverberg plans for Mike Boit to compete in the 880-yard run, the mile, the three-m'ile and the six-mile. "If we're going to be in contention, then we're going to s q u e e z e everything out of Conflict Becomes More Heated Top WTT Players Banned In Europe By The Associated Preu The dispute between the Eu. ropean tennis federation and · the new World Team Tennis league is heating up after announcements that Jimmy Connors and Evonne Goolagong, , two of WTT's big names, will · not be permitted to take part in top European events. "No WTT players will play in tournaments staged by our federations " declared Gianfranco Cameli. secretary of the Italian f e d e r a t i o n , in announcing Wednesday that Connors, the controversial American ace. is banned from the Italian Open. Weaver Named All-Star Coach BALTIMORE (AP) -- Man-' ager Earl Weaver has more important things to think about at the moment, but two months from today he'll be managing (tie American League All-Star team for the fourth time. The Oriole skipper was named by league president Lee MacPhail Wednesday to direct the American League team in the annual All-Star game against the National League July 23 in Pittsburgh. He'll replace Dick Williams, who resigned as m a n a g e r ol the Oakland Athletics after they won their second straight pennant and World Series in 1973. The New York Yankees tried to sign Williams, but be cause he was still under contract with Oakland, the move was disallowed. Since Baltimore was the runner-up to Oakland. Weaver was named as the replacement for Williams. Weaver managed the Ameri can League in 1970-71-72. He was criticized several times for his pitching selections, notably for leaving relievers off the pitching staff. Shortstop Campy Campaneris of the A's once rapped Weaver for not beinz used in the game. "Just once," Weaver said, "I'd like to hear someone say 'thanks'." Although Weaver has dl reeled only o n e American League victory, the 6-4 decision at Detroit, in 1971 is the only loss dealt the National League in the past 11 years. Both loss es suffered by Weaver's teams were in extra i n n i n g games. The National League now holds a 25-18 edge in the series which began 1933. There has been one tie. Mets' manager Yogi Berra will direct the National League team. Under no circumstances wil Connors be allowed to play in Rome or elsewhere in Italy," aid Cameli. "The Kalian fed eration's stand on the WTT has been crystal clear--and v von't budge one single inch." That stand is to bar players signing contracts with teams ir h e tJ.S.-based league f r o m competing on the prestigious European circuit. Cameli indicated Connors hac not submitted a proper appli cation for the Italian Opert, bu' added t h a t was not the primary reason he was being banned. Miss Goolagong. banned b; the French federation Erorr compcting in the French Open plans to go to Paris anyway according to her manager, Vic Edwards. "No way I can stop Eyonni from going." Edwards said, in dicating that the Australia! star would have to be told o the court that she can't play i the French Open, the secon leg of tennis' Grand Slam. Mis Goolagong won the first leg, th Australian Open, earlier thi year. Wimbledon and the U.S Open at Forest Hills complet the Grand Slam. Tennis Upset BOURNEMOUTH England -- Dick Crealy of Auslrialia up set seeded Erik Van Dillen ol Aplns, Calif. 7-5, 6-3 'and ad vanced to tho quarter-finals in the $7Z,000 British Hard Court Tennis Championships.

Casteel hit .391 and had a 12- pitching record in America Legion baseball last year. them," Silverberg said. "We ·ent to the Kansas Relays and he Drake Relays and doubled p there getting ready for this ne." Silverberg believes Boit will in the 880-yard run. Boit has a est of 1:47.3. four tenths below he NAIA record. He also beeves Boit will have a good hance In the mile, where he eads the NAIA with a 4:02.2. Silverberg is counting on 'hlllip Ndoo to win the three- mile and the sin-mite. Ndoo has iroken the NAIA record in both ivents. "I believe our boys will run good times." he said. "I believe hey will run faster than they lave this year." The chance of records in the distance events will be en- lanced if Boit and Ndoo do not lave to run two or three quali- ying races prior to the finals. The number of heats necessary will be deterrnind by the num- )er of entrants. Tn addition to Boit and Ndoo. SilvernLTg is counting on Dennis Williams, Joseph Mengich and Tom Boitt for points. Each s ranked in at least distance event. Silverberg said his athletes would benefit from the lower altitude at Arkadelphia. Arkadelphia. "It's 4,000 feet and just flat as a pancake at home, he said. 'We've got more air to breathe icre." Silverberg said the meet winner would probably score about 60 points. Two firsts by Boit and two by Ndoo would mean 40 points off the top for Eastern New Mexico. "If all oiiro distance kids come through, we will be pretty close to 60 points." Silverberg said. "I believe there will be more teams scoring points than ever before." he said. "That could be what wins the meet . .. team from someplace else knocking off points from the contenders. I don't think any team is going to be able to win it on its own." The marathon is the first event to be contested and the favorite is Lucian Rosa of Wisconsin. Rosa won the event last year and was fourth in the re cent Boston Marathon. The finals in the hammer throw and the first five events of the decathlon will also be contested today. There will be six finals Friday and 14 Saturday.
