NFLPA Members Invade Coaches All-America Game Preparations LUBBOCK. Tex. (AP) _ Texas Tech Coach Jim Carlen, one or Ihc hosts for (he 14th annual Coaches All-America football game, said today. "It's a sad commentary" that professional football would invade the grounds of a college All-Star contest to bicker over a threatened srike. "If they (the owners and players) want a battleground . why don't they go to Chicago?' ! queried Carlen. "The pros help put that (All-Star) game on. We , don't even have a professional · team in this town." :· Representatives of the Na: tional Football League Players : Association headed by Bill Cur: ry of the Houston Oilers met ; Wednesday with rookies from : Ihc Kast and West squads who ; will (angle Saturday njglil in a : nationally televised All-Star game in Jones Stadium. ! Curry said a f t e r a meeting · wilh Ihe players from both squads, "We (the NFLPA) received no guarantee from any rookie that they would strike." However. Curry said the response was excellent and the rookies were most attentive. He said he wanted to assure the sponsors of the Coaches All- America football game t h a t they were not trying to disrupt any activity leading into the contest. lobbyists from the · owner side of the fence also were in abundance, asking rookies to ignore any pleas to boycott camp which starts July 1. Carlen said "This is a game to promote college football. When Miami (the NFL champion) plays the College All Stars in Chicago in late July that's a different story. They can fight ail they want down there." The majority of players __ the All-Star game contacted by The Associated Press said they would a t t e n d camp even f t there was a strike.

Crampton, defending champion in the $170,000 American .

It was, by far, the best · season of his 17-year career. · He hasn't won this year. He '. hasn't even threatened very se, riously. He ranks 23rd on the ; current money list with $54 000 But the sturdily-built, 38-year- old Australian declines to complain. "If I'm 23rd on Hie mone; list, then only 22 men in the world are belter than I am. That's not too bad. T h e amount I won last year has been bettered by only one man in history. Only four men have 'won more for a career. "I can't complain," he em phasi/ccl loday before teeing oC on the 7,180-yard, par-70 Firestone Country Club course in the first round of the 72-hole chase for a $34,000 first prize. He was among the favorites here where his strength and length should be major advantages on the long, lough layout.
