Krrgland (AP) -- The brashness of youth set nerves tingling in the 87th Wimbledon Championships, but some older cynics were smiling when darkness descended and Chris Evert a n d Bjorn Borg were left hanging. The success of the top teenagers in the world of tennis was to be determined today, weather permitting. Miss Evert, No. 2 seed among the women, was to resume her match with veteran Lesley Hunt which went to 44 games before it was halted Wednesday night. Borg, seeded No. 5 among the men, was to continue his match with Australian Ross Case which he "I've been in position to win a lot of times, and it hasn't happened. It always seems that something happens, something bad--I hit it out of bounds or 1 get it wet or something--just wher) I'm ready. "I'm sure that I can do it. I'm sure I can win. It just hasn't happened yet." The sturdy redhead, only 24 and possessed of the massive, burly forearms of a young Palmer, takes his quest for his first pro victory into the $200.000 Western Open Golf Tournament this week and ranks high among the list of favorites for the $40,000 first prize. The 72-hole event got under way today on the ultratough 7,000-yard, par 71 Butler National Golf Club course--a new layout being played for the first time and the one that is set to be the permanent site for this old tournament. nearly pique. forefeited in a fit of Miss Evert, in her 1974 debut halted 3^4 hours by a cold rain, won the first set 8-6, lost the second 5-7 and was tied in the third 9-9. Borg, playing a second-round match, was leading two sets to one but Irailirtg the fourth 1-4 after deliberately hitting two shots out of the stadium in anger because the match wasn't stopped sooner deference to the hour. When the two teen-agers arrived at Wimbledon, they had wrapped up the 1974 Italian and French titles and appeared the obvious threats to the estab- ished stars of this staid old classic. Super-confident and' virtually contemptuous before play started, Miss Evert, 19, of Fort Lauderdale, Fla., and Borg, 18. of Sweden, declared they feared no one and caused consternation among some veteran Wimbledon observers. Top-seeded John Ncwcombe the 30-year-old Australian who las won here three times, h: warned it would take "more than youihful strength to win the singles trophies. "Matches on the center court at Wimbledon are won and lost up here." Newcombe said touching his head. "Ability and power are not enough." Newcombe and fellow veterans Stan Smith and Hie Nastase advanced comfortably the third round. to Borg was struggling against Case and stormed off the court in the fouth set, complaining it was too dark to see, only to be ordered back to play or forfeit the match. After shout's from spectators that "it's not too dark for Newcombe," he grudgingly returned, wearing his orange sweat suit, and angrily knocked two serves over the fence before the match was called. : LJNf QUALITY MATERIALS DISCOUNT PRICES · MTMKIIKAHD · MASTER CHARGE WELCOME PELfVERY SERVICE ALSQ AVAILABLE IN SEVERAL LOCATIONS iiiiiiiiiiiiimdTiiisssiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiaiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiBsiii Babe Ruth Diamond Action iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiMiniDuiiiiiiiiiiniiMiiiiiiiniiiiniinini iMcllroy Bank and UCT pu together Babe Ruin victories i make up games played Wet nesday evening.

"I've had 14 starts," t h e intense left-hander noted Wednesday night after disposing of the St. Louis Cardinals 7-2 on a tidy three-hitter marrekd by two late Pirate errors. "The only bad gam* I think I pitched was in Cincinnati when I gave up six runs," he added. "In Montreal I gave up four runs in five innings. I really think I could have won 10 games." Hooker's frustration lay partially with the unavailing 3.07 earned run average he took into the game and partly with spotty Pirate play afield. "The way we've been playing most of the year gives you an idea," he said in reference to his record. "I don't think that it's my luck that's involved," he de- Booneville Bass Event Saturday June 28 the Booneville Bass Club is la sponsor a BASS tournament for the benefit of the cerebral palsy fund.

Rooker, whose last previous outing was a 3-2 loss, was perfect in the game against the Cardinals until Mike Tyson singled with one out in the third. Then the 31-year-old former, American Leaguer set down 17 in a row before Tyson was safe on Richie Hebner's error in the ninth. Jim Dwyer beat out a bunt which Rooker was late fielding, Ted Sizemore singled to fill the bases with one out and two runs scored when Paul Popovich threw past second base on an attempted forceout. "If we were in first place I wouldn't think about it all," Rooker said in further mention of his record. "But we've just been playing crummy, that's all," he insisted. "We've got a lot of guys with too much talent to be playing the way we have." One Pirate concurring with Rooker was massive Willie Stargell, who cracked his 12th home run during a four-run Pillsburgh first. "It felt pretty good, but I haven't been doing it enough," acknowledged Stargell. whose three-run blast scuttled Cards' starter Sonny Siebert, 7-5. ;; "I'd just like to see us get 16 500," Stargell said in respect to the Pirates' 29-40 record. . The Pirates, despite their woes, are only 7'/j games behind the division - leading Cards in the National League East. "Nobody's running away with it," Stargell noted. "There's still lime." ·'· WHAT IS FIRST FEDERAL UP TO? 75% LOANS TO BUY A MAY WE SERVE YOU? 2 Locations To Serve You On the Square and Northwest Arkansas Plaza first federal A GREAT FOOD BUY FROM WAL-MART marucharrs FUMEIN 4 for 99' Serve as a snack, lunch, side dish or prepare an authentic oriental dinner just by adding your favorite meat, shrimp, etc. Great for camping trips tool From package to serving in just 3 minutes.
