Lynn Nance, a former FBI agent, and Bill Hunt, a former Texas sportswriter and a graduate of Soulhern Methodist Uni- versity law school, arrived here Friday--just 24 hours after Malone had signed t h e Maryland grant-in-aid. Nance and Hunt spent most of Friday morning with Malone and his mother, Mrs, Mary Malone, (he Times-Dispatch said. Malone refused to disclose anything about the conversa- sonal stuff." Mrs. Malone, however, told friends about the conversation and one told the newspaper hat, "Mrs. Malone said one coach offered Moses $1,000, which would be delivered to him though an intermediary.

I beat lim four times and now he comes back to beat me once. "What does that prove? Noih- ng. Next time could be my ime. That's the way it works." Smith's triumph at Notting- lam on grass after a somewhat ack-lustre season caused London's legal bookies to shorten odds on the towering Californian. Because of his dominance over his older and ..experinced op ponent, Connors was given a imith. He also was handed a higher seeding here -- No. 3 compared with No. 4 for Smith, who won the title in 1972. John Newcombe of Australia was seeded No. 1, followed by ]ie Nastase of Romania, Connors and Smith. Defending champion Jan Kodes of Czechoslovakia was placed sixth.

Bill Riordon He has re Bobby Unser Claims Pole; Foyt To Begin Near Back MOUNT POCONO, Pa. (AP) --' Bobby Unser, no slouch as a speed merchant, has t h e front raw pole position for Sunday's Schaefer 500-mile auto race a n d ; A.J. Foyt is disgruniled and un-. lappy. i Unser, at 40 the elder of two; driving brothers from Albu- i quertjue, N.M.. drove four laps, or 20 miles. Saturday at an average speed of 18,500 miles per ,r to claim an honor that st observers already had conceded to the legendary Foyt. Foyt, who started No. 2 in the two previus SOO-mile races this year that make up the United States A u t o Club's "Triple Crown" series, had been t h e odds-on pole favorite when qualifying opened lo select 33 starters for (his $405,000 event. But the fabled Texan blew his chances when a valve broke in his Gilmore racing team Coyote while in the midst of a run that would have dislodged Unser. The fact that Foyt's crew replaced the ruptured engine in less than two h o u r s didn't help. Time ran out before the three- time Indianapolis winner g o t another chance at the pole. Rain washed out a linal qual- i f y i n g round scheduled for Sunday and track and USAC officials ordered qualifications reopened Thursday morning. That's the only day the 25-mile Pocono International Raceway will be open before Sunday's start. The day had b e e n re- s e r v e d f o r "carburetion runs"--or what amounts to a final practice session. Officials ruled that there will be no "bumping" in the carryover session. Even if Foyt were to run 190 m.p.h. he'd still start near the car. Foyt criticized another ca owner whose driver had taken up valuable qualifying time bj r u n n i n g three warmup laps then running three more unde the clocks before being wavec off by his crew. The driver rookie Tom Bigelow, was tl next to last entry to make qualifying attempt. With the first 28 starters de cided, Steve Krisiloff and Wall.
