Foyt and Andretti both had engine problems during their own sceduled four-lap t r i p s around the 2.5-mile Pocono International! Raceway while running at speeds that would have dislodged Unser from the pole. Foyt, winner of the hssl ilarting spot in each of the pre- 'ious 500-mile races in the 1974 U.S. Auto Club's "Triple rown" series, broke a piston on the second of his four laps rlis First lap had been docket dt 185.759 ni.p.h. Andretti ran laps of 182.334 183.524 and 182.593 before losing power on his fourth lap. HL pulled off the oval without com- plcting his r u n . Thus, Foyt and Andretti stil were in line for a shot at Unse later in the day. Foyt was Faced with an engine change before Saturday's qualifying deadline. Andretti's problem was a slicking throttle, fairly easy to correct. It was the first of two days o trials to select 33 starters fo the fourth Schaefer 500. Fina runs will be held Sunday. Saturday's speeds fell la short of those recorded for thi same race last year, the dro] was attributed to tsew fuel am air foil restrictions, and a smal "pop-off" valve and "pressur regulator" that limits boost in the turbochargers mounted 01 engines. The late Peter Revson woi last year's pole position with ; four-lap, 10-mile speed of 190.648 m.p.h., but Foyt woi the race.

Storen said despite Memphis Jcing without George Thompon and Carolina losing Mack alvin and Ted McClain, he felt ic two franchises would be ompetitive next season. "You want to start w i t h Icmphis?" Sloren quipped. Suppose they sign David 'hompson? You think they'd be ompetitive next year?" He continued. "I am not Tcating predictions, but the juestion of competitiveness and becoming competitive relates to good solid ownership and good management." Sloren said discussions on a ational television contract for he ABA would continue. He laid ABC and NBC are still being conferred with and the lughes Sports Network has a irst-rider refusal. Storen said !iat throughout the summer 'We'll be exploring with those ntities a broadened tcleision jackage." Asked if he was optimistic the ABA would be able to negotiate a national television contract, Storen said, "I was very optimistic on the merger." He added, "it's tike signing A player. If you strike a 15-game package with ABC, I'm totally optimistic, or if you don't have a 15-game package or you don't have television, I'd be very pessimistic." The question of merger appear dead for this season, although Storen says the ABA trustees arc still open to the idea should the National Basketball Association decide to take positive aclion. Storen said the ABA has more to offer national telfc- vision with the "emergence of Julius Erving on the east coast and Wilt Chamberlain now playing in a major arena in San Diego on the west Coast, we have gained a measure of national acceptance which I think greatly enhances our ability to garner a more productive television package." Storen said Billy Cunningham has "a valid contract" with the Carolina franchise. "And when t h a t franchise is relocated he will be playing with that franchise." Philadelphia 7S«rs owner Irv Kosloff was recently quoted as saying his team has a valid contract with C u n n i n g h a m " Vt the 1974-75 season and it was his opinion Cunningham's C.. ,- lina contract was still in litiga- lion. Much of the success of the relocated Cougars may depend on whether they are able to keep the services of Cunningham. TERMITES? CALL ADMIRAL PEST CONTROL Roaches, Ants.
