For Arthur Ashe Northwest Arkansas TIMES, Sun., Jun* 30, 1974 PAVCTTCVILLI. AHKAMUS) Opportunities Getting Fewer WIMBLEDON. England (AP) - At the age of 30, Arthur Ashe doesn't know how many more opportunities there will be for him to strike at tennis super stardom. He knows he's already blown one, and another is close at hand. "At the beginning of this year, I set two goals (or my- slender native of Va., said after self," the Richmond, smashing into the men's third round Friday at Wimbledon. "One of them was to win the WCT finals at Dallas, the other was to win Wimbledon.

(TIMES- phbto By Ken Good) Gene brazen Set Pattern For PGA Event CLEMMONS, N.C. --Gene Sarazen set the pattern back :here in the Golden Age when he won two of his three PGA Championships ten years apart. Gene won at Pelham in 1923 when he defeated Walter Hagen in the celebrated match play final that went 38 holes. And ten years later, at Milwaukee, he routed Willie Goggin to earn another inscription on the Rodman Wanamaker Trophy. Meanwhile, t h e venable PGA Championship has changed its formula from Match Play to Stroke Play. But the pattern set by Sarazen has become fixed in recent years. The last two winners of this classic also twon the title on two occasions, ten years apart. In 1962. Gary Player won at Aronimink, near Philadelphia, and a decade later won it again in (972 at Oakland Hills, near Detroit. The 1963 winner at Dallas was Jack Nicklaus who won again last year at Canterbury, near Cleveland. Nicklaus will defend his title August 8-11 at Tanglewood G. C. near Winston-Salem, N.C., and will have strong popular support to win his fouth PGA crown. But if the 10-year pattern holds, Bobby Nichols will be the surprise winner. He won a decade ago at Columbus, Ohio, with a record score of 271. Since then, Nichols has curtailed his tournament activities and established a permanent mail drop at the Firestone C.C. Vkron, Ohio, but roamed the xximament trail long enough during the first six months ol the year to win the San Diego )pen. tie for seventh in the Masters and bank about $75 .DOC n prize money. Not bad for a part-time avo cation! "I went to Dallas with high, hopes after leading the Green circuit. Then I played miserably against Bjorn Borg. I was disappointed. But here 1 was at Wimbledon." The World Championship of Tennis finals, t« lop prize of the touring pros, went to John Newcombe of Australia, who is Ihe No. 1 seeded favorite for the men's crown here. And young Borg is having to be protected from screaming, screeching admirers while Ashe plays in semiprivacy on the outside courts. Ashe looked very sharp -- although he didn't think so -- in beating the Soviet Union's Taimurez Kakuli 6-1, 6-4, 6-3. "I thought 1 should do something to help along the summit conference," Arthur remarked impishly afterward, showing that he reads other parts of the paper besides the sports pages and is aware of President Nixon's trip to Moscow. But it's easy to see that Ash. has his sights on the Wimbledon crown. He was a dominant figure in man's sport and became ac; cepted in the swankiest country clubs the world over, He was the No. 1 star of the U.S. Davis Cup learn. In 1368, as an amateur, he won the U.S. Open championship. In that same year, he went to the semifinals at Wimbledon, losing a tough match to Rod Laver, who was then the king of the pros. He gained the semifinals at Wimbledon in 1969 also but again lost to Laver. Ashe is seeded No. 8 here and rated behind both Stan Smith and Jimmy Connors in the U.S. national rankings. the game when, as a scrawny black youngster, he broke the Carriers stuffy, while 34 East Center Phone: 521-6472 Business Cards, Letter- beads.

Storon called the report pure speculation. T h e Press-Scimitar said Storen was in the city last week with ABA President Tedd Munchak lo discuss with business leaders the future of the Tams. a team that the ABA purchased from Charles O. Finley at recent league meetings in Louis- wile, Ky. Reached at his home in Louisville, Storen confirmed that he and Munchak had been in Memphis "and met with city officials about the future of ABA basketball in the city. "Anything else is pure speculation," he said. An informed source told The Associated Press that Storen is seriously considering the move. "A determination of the Memphis franchise will be made at a league meeting after July 4," Storen said. The exact date and site of the meeting hare not been set, he said. Mike Lynn, president of Mid South Sports, Inc., a sports promotion firm, said he invited Storen and Munchak to the city. Storen, according to Lynn, was the driving force that kept the Tams in Memphis at recent ABA meetings. "In my opinion, if it weren't tor the commissioner, the franchise would be gone," he said. The league's intention, according to the newspaper, is to make the Tams a strong enough franchise to be included in the merger with the National Basketball Association that is expected within a year. Thr*e-Year Poet QUEBEC (AP) -- Forward Mike Rouleau, who scored goals and 66 assists for the N o r t h America n Hockey League -Maim Nordiques last season, signed a three-year contract with the Quebec Nor- diques, the World Hockey Association club announced Thursday. Racing Marks Still Stand Despite Years The vulnerability of time records by Thoroughbreds is itself a matter of record. Most of the records at standard dis- ances are of more or less recent vintage but there are some n the record book that continue :o withstand the test of time. The durability of these records is not due, however, to blistering speed but to the simple fact that in most cases the distance at which they were set is today rarely, if 'ever, run and the tracks over which they were run no longer exist. Oldest of the American dirt course records is that of a lorse named Joe Murphy who, as a 4-year-old in 1894 sped two and one eighth miles in 3 minutes and 42 seconds at the old Harlem track in Chicago. Another record established before the turn of the century is Lutrecia Bordia's 4-mile reace against lime at Oakland, California in 1897, accomplished in 7 minutes and 11 seconds. While the tiny racemare's record remains in the book it is accompanied by that of Sotfmia who in 1912 at Churchill Downs covered 4 miles in 7:10 and four- Tifths.
