However, six other Arkansas rookies drafted into the. NFL say they will attend training camps despite the strike. The NFLPA, which is expected to strike the camps today, has asked rookies, who aren't association members, to stay away from their training camps in support of the association's demands. The six Arkansans who will attend the camps are Danny Rhodes of the University of Arkansas, drafted by the Baltimore Colts; Vince Ancell of Ark a n s a s State University, drafted by the SI. Louis Cardinals; Tom TCd Gooden of Harding College, drafted by the Cleveland Browns, Alan Dixon of Harding College, drafted by .he Minnesota Vikings. Doug Lowery of ASU, drafted by the New York Jets, and Roscoe Word of Pine Bluff, who attended Jackson -State College at Jackson, Miss., drafted by the Jets. Morton said, "I haven't de- oided yet, but my thinking right now is that I want to get along with the veteran players. I don't want any hard feelings between Ihem and me." Morton doesn't report to training camp until July 15 and may have his made mind up for him if the strike is settled mcnt Sunday. Watson, a 24-year-old redhead who had been so close so many .imes before,- came from six strokes back with a last-round 69--the best-score, of the day-to nail down his first professional triumph by two. strokes over J.C. Snead and struggling Tom Weiskopf. . Watson's total was 287, three strokes over par on the ul- tratough Butler National Golf Club course. It marked .the third consecutive week on the pro tour that the winning score was in plus-par figures, the first time-in recent history that didn't deserve to win." "it finally happened," exuded wo weeks ago--then shot a demoralizing 79 in the last round. '· "But this,"' he "said, ··---'-- t worthwhile."

Snead had , a . . , , . . 72 U in gusty winds and third-round leader Weiskopf an incredible 77, including 41 on the back nine and a bogey-double bogey finish. "I have no excuses," salt Weiskopf, who led Snead by five strokes and Watson by six when the day's play started. "I played very poorly. "Playing as poorly as I did, NO EXCUSES have no excuses," [ lea twice the year before. "1 never doubted I could win. [ knew it was just a matter of :ime. . . . . . . "But, man, this is 'eeling." Only Watson, 3nead were in contention in the last round. U.S. Open pion Hale Irwin came lake fourth with a 72-! nold Palmer had a 74-294 and tied for fifth with Gene Littler Larry Nelson and Butch Baird Nelson and Littler had 71s and Baird 75. '· Watsoh collected $40,000 from the total purse of $200,000 pushing his winnings to $126,000 for the year, fourth on the mon ay-winning list for the year.

Cardinals Did he or didn't he? Only Reggie Smith knows for sure. Chris Pelekoudas and Paul Pryor, the umpires who disagreed on the crucial play with two out in the ninth inning that prevented the New York Mets from nipping the St. Louis Cardinals 4-3, weren't certain. "Man, there's no way that was a trap," said Smith, whose shoestring lunge for Cleon Jones' liner, was finally ruled a egal catch.

And when Bake McBride tagged Tug McGraw for a two- run homer an inning later, the Cardinals had a 5-3 triumph and a sweep of Sunday's doubleheader. They took the opener 5-2. Elsewhere in the National League, the Pittsburgh Pirates took a pair from the Philadelphia Phillies 11-8 and 3-2, the Los Angeles Dodgers shaded the San Francisco Giants 5-3, the Atlanta Braves downed the Cincinnati Reds 7-3, the Montreal Expos flattened the Chicago Cubs 10-2 and the San Diego Padres edged Houston 65 in 11 innings after the Astros took the opener 3-1. As the diving Smith rolled over and held his glove aloft with the ball nestled in it, Pele- koudas, the first base umpire, signaled a hit. But Pryor, umpiring at second, was signaling out. A toped replay showed Smith appeared to trap the ball. '.

Russian Coach Igor Ter-Ova- nesyan said the squad he Drought to Durham represents 90 per cent of the best track and field talent in his nation. Games can't make that claim.

WASHINGTON (AP) - The first picket lines are expected in San Diego on Wednesday as the players' union strikes the National Football League in a dispute over the so-called freedom issues. Rookies and free agents, who do not become eligible to join the 'NFL Players Association until the regular season starts, may hold the key to the outcome. But it's a matter ot doubt whether they'll play even the exhibition games. Bill Curry of the Houston Oil- ers, president of the union, scheduled a news conference at the association · headauarters here to discuss the players' po sition.on the strike which began officially at midnight Sunday. Negotiations on a new collec live bargaining agreement between the players and the NFL Management Council, the own ers' bargaining agent,' brok down last Wednesday when th ;wo parties reaches an almos insurmountable impasse.
