Marshall, a strongman who recently set a record of appearing in 13 straight games, gets better with age--and competition. "That the man is trying to get a hit off me and *he other club is trying to beat me is the only incentive I need to do my best," Marshall said. An unemotional Marshall dispatched his former teammates Sunday · with cool professionalism. Marshall was traded from the Expos to Hie Dodgers last winter for center fielder Willie Davis. In the other National League games, the Chicago Cubs nipped the Atlanta Braves 4-3; t h e Philadelphia Phillies stopped the San Diego Padres 9-3; t h e New York Mets blanked the San Francisco Gi ants 6-0; the Pittsburgh Pirates St. Louis Cardinals, 2-1 and 112.

On World Tennis Scene Connors Blossoming WIMBLEDON, England (AP) -- As Noel Coward once wrote, it's the younger generation knocking at the door. Jimmy Connors, the Belleville, 111., whiz kid. Is the new men's Wimbledon champion. He's 21. Jimmy's'fiancee, Chris Evert, from Fort Lauderdale, Fla., is the new women's champion. She's 19. Together, they make an impressive young duo that could bestride the Wimbledon courts for a long time. The backdrop of what could be the end of one tennis era and the beginning of another was the sunny Wimbledon center court last Saturday, when an ecstatic Connors stood excitedly waving aloft the 'giant silver trophy he had Just won. Yards behind htm, hidden and almost forgotten behind a crowd of press photographers and officials congratulating the new champion, stood the sad and despondent figure of Ken Xosewall, the little Australian whose long dream of winning the Wimbledon crown had been shattered for the fourth--and possibly--the last time. Rosewall, one of the all-time greats of tennis and the winner of every major title except Wimbledon, is nearly 40. He has been coming here--except for the years when professionals were barred from Wimbledon--since 1952. the year Connors was born. Connors called him a legend and asked, "How do you play a legend?" On Saturday he showed how, winning 6-1, 6-1, 6-4 in 90 minutes in a match that could prove the end of the old brigade. , Rosewall virtually admitted hat when someone asked him low Connors compared with tod Layer, the Australian \vljo s the biggest money-earner in tennis history. Laver. like Connors, first won Wimbledon as an eager youngster of 21, then went on to dominate the courts of the world for. over- a decade. "Everyone' knows what Rod :has done," said Rosewall. "Jimmy has got his whole future 'in front of him--he could do anything." Out of the men's singles this year went veterans like John Newcombe, a three-time champion here, and out of the women's singles went Billie Jean King--who didn't - reach the semifinals for the first time in 12 years when Olga Morozova of Russia beat her in the quarter-finals. Olga went on to -·each the final--the first Russian girl to get that far--where "Urns beat her, 6-0, 7-4. Another U.S. youngster who :s likely to make a big name 'or himself is Dick Stockton of Dallas. Stockton, .only 23, reached the semifinals with victories over Hie Nastase of Romania and Alex Metreveli of Russia before losing to Conors. Another . youngster destine* for tennis stardom , ; is -Bjord Borg, the blond Swede-who-is only 18 and came to Wimbledon off victories in the Italian anc French tournaments. But Borg, a teeny-boppers idol who had to be surrounded by police wherever he went to protect him from the kids, losl in the third round and brough o question his ability U stand up to the strain of a ma jor tournament like Wimbledon Wohlhuter Oil To Europe For Competition DURHAM, N.C .(AP) -- Rick Wohlhuter, a 25-year-old Chi cago insurance adjuster,' is of to Europe today in search of competition at 800 meters. Wohlhuter, a. Notre Dame graduate, may find someone to push him on the European circuit as he takes advantage of a 30-day leave from his employ- rs. But he's not likely to find a track that he'll like as much as the red, artificial surface at Duke University's Wallace Wade Stadium. Both times he's run there, the erformances have been out- anding. Last year, he an- hored the Chicago Track Club a world record in the two iile relay. Saturday, in the U.S.-U.S.S.R. ual track meet, he turned in ne of the fastest 800 meters ver run, a 1:44.0 achieved ithout serious competition, 'ohlhuter was 40 yards in front '.

The Babe Ruth double-elimination tournament continued over the weekend with six games. Mcllroy Bank came out on top in the losers bracket and will play IGA in the finals tonight at 7 at the Industrial Park field. In the first game Saturday, Collier Drug buried Elkins 19-7. David Gardner was the winning pitcher and Danny Hankins took the loss. For Collier's, Daran Johnson doubled and singled, Duane Dunn, Eddie Osburn pnd ibson each singled twice Martinez Advances -- BAASTAD, - S\yeden --..

Jame lasts 90 minutes and that even the strongest team of the preliminary rounds will have to rove they are the best during hose full 90 minutes." What Schoen labeled "fight- ng spirit and the will to win" overcame what had been called the soccer wave of the future as played by The Netherlands. The West Germans went ahead 2-1 in the 43rd minute when Gerd Mueller took a pass Tom Rainer Bonhof and slammed the ball home on a right-footed kick from 10 yards out. Goalie;Sepp Maier and Berti Vogts, who shadowed the Dutch superstar Johnan Cruyff, were tested time and again by the Dutch in the second half. After the game, the German coach had some harsh words about Cruyff's play but later softened-them. "Of course, Cru- yff is one of the best I've ever seen, although I must say he had a difficult time today." Maier made two big saves The first came with about 20 minutes remaining when th German goalie blocked a Nees kens shot and a minute later hi Gip and Worley, Dwayne Gardner had a hit. Tom Jimmie Harrelson, Durell and Hankins had has hits for Elkins. IGA, pushed its season record to 17-0 in the second game Saturday, overpowering Huntsvllle 10-1. Darrell Strange was the winner and Jim Horton the lo- ·«er. Robert Leblond and Rick Allred led the IGA attack, while Huntsville managed just one hit off Strange. In Saturday's third game, First Federal breezed past Siloam Springs Brand Rex 11-3. Terry Fraley was the winning pitcher over Doug Siemens. Richy Baird, Wes Lamb and Fraley each singled and Randy Drake tripled for First Federal. For Brand Rex, David Calico, Steve Calico and Siemens got Prerace Favorite Bobby Allison Lasts Only Two Laps; Ramo Stoll Collects Salem Checkered Flag SALEM, Ind. (AP) -- Bobby I Allison's Indiana racing luck continues--all bad.

The- Hueytown, Ala.; driver referred to his 1973 Indianapolis 500 effort which also lasted two laps. Allison, a million-dollar winner on the Southern NASCAR circuit, had been the prerace favorite for the U.S. Auto Club event, but USAC regular Ramo Stott took the checkered flag. Stott, of Keokuk, Iowa, dashed into the lead on the 68th lap of the 100-lap feature when Larry Moore, who had led since the llth circuit, dropped out. Stott averaged better than 79 miles per hour, finishing 13 sec- base hits. Mcllroy Bank heat Collier Drug 6-4 in the final game Saturday. Jimmy Luper, Todd Darter.

Joe Holt pitched a two-hitter in besting First Federal's Randy Drake. Holt also had a single, as did teammates Ferguson, Dillard and Darter. Terry Fraley and Andy Rea got the First Federal hits. Mcllroy made it three wins for the weekend by topping Hunlsville 6-2 in the Sunday nightcap. Steve Coker got credit for the win, aided by a double ^by Dillard and singles by La- ·;v°unts.

Stolt, who also won the trc phy dash, was expected to r ceive more than $3,000 for th victory out of an estimate purse exceeding $10,000. A crowd estimated at 8,00 packed the liny speedway. Sue Roberts Wnis First LPGA Crown As Joanne Garner Slips -- Joanne earner's quadruple bogey-eight on the second hole was just the inspiration Sue Roberts needed to win her first Ladies Professional Golf Association tournament in six years of trying. "After we (she and her partner) savy Joanne take that eight, I just wanted to play it safe, hit all the fairways and greens and keep from three putting," the 25-year-old Columbus. Ohio, blonde said. She didn't three-putt in the final round of the Niagara Frontier Classic Sunday and won it with a thrce-under-par 70 and a 54-hole total of 213, six under par. Mrs. Carner, co-leader with Miss Roberts and Murlc Brecr going into the final round, came in with a 72 and a 215. Mrs. Breer, with a 74, was third at 217. Miss Roberts, who won 45,000 and rjiscd her year's earnings for 16 ''ournaments to $14,400, feared the 15th hole most on ulled down a fierce 25-yard ·ive by Theo de Jong. Despite his victory, Schoen ailed the final game dis- ppointing and blamed the play n the stress of the tournament, ach team had played six amcs which drained much of heir stamina. "That is why I am very skep- cal about the plans to have 20 r more . teams participate in he next World Cup tourna- lent," Schoen said. "We must realize that so .any games in such a short me might demand too much lysically even from profes- lonal soccer players." Poland took third place in the ournament with a 1-0 victory aturday over Brazil, the de ending champion. Gerald Hannahs Signs Contract With Montreal Four year starting Arkansa Razorback pitcher Gerald Han nahs has srgned a baseball con tract with the Montreal Expo of the National League East d vision. Hannahs, who hails from Li tie Rock, was 5-5 this seaso anc! led the Sofithwest Confer ence in strike outs per nine ini ing contest with an average o 11. He was signed by John Re Murff. Legion Game Here Fayetteville College Club wi put- its 21-6 record on the lin here tonight in a conferenc game against Harrison. Actio at. the Legion Field will beg at 6. ined victory at 192-184. ·The combined score ave been different had it not een for one of the political quabbles that continually lague American track efforts.. Several Americans represent- ng the Pacific Coast Club de- idcd not to compete, electing r.stead to run on the European ummer circuit. The AAU vanted national team members o remain in the United States intil after the Russian meet. The P.CC athletes said they should have been allowed to go 0 Europe on their own and re- urn briefly for the meet in Durham. f. That was of no concern to Wohlhuter. "It's an individual decision on their part," he said of the missing athletes. "I en- oy running for the national earn. It's something to tell ·our grandchildren about-- leating the Russians." SMOOTH STRIDE Wohlhuter's stride flows so smoothly that he makes run ning 1:44.0 seem easy. But, he said, "I was working'out there. [ heard the crowd, and I knew 1 must be doing well." Setting 4he pace by himself from the beginning, Wohlhuter went past the first quarter in 52.9,' "a little too slow for a record." The cheers of the 38,500 fans in attendance spurred him around the second circuit in 51.1. The world record for 800 meters is 1:43.7, owned by Italian Marcello Fiasconaro. "I'd like to have it, and I'm capable oi breaking it," Wohlhuter said. Wohlhuter had looked forward to running against Soviet Evgeniy Ar/hanov, the 1972 'Olympic silver medalist. He dealt Wohlhuter his last defeat in the U.S.-U.S.S.R. meet at Minsk last year. land's Gaylord Perry has started losing sleep over his assault on the American League consecutive season victory record of 16. He attempts to lie the mark shared by four hurlers tonight against the World Champion Oakland A's. Perry, who until last week repeatedly has said he was taking them one game at a time, napped for only a half hour instead of his normal 45 minutes before his 15th straight win in Milwaukee. "I feel the pressure," the 35- year-old Cy Young Award winner said. "It-keeps building up, more and more." "Actually, I think I pitch better when I'm under pressure." he added. "When the adrenalin gets flowing, I seem to pitch better. I don't know why, that's just the way it is for me." TROUBLE WITH A's Perry has to be extra careful with the A's. Since coming to the American League, Perry's record against the Oakland club is 2-8. The Indians have trouble witli the A's. In 15 encounters here since 1971, Cleveland has won only three. Perry's only loss this season was a 6-1 defeat on opening day might to the Yankees' in New York. The American League record s shared by Walter Johnson and Joseph Wood, both in 1912, and Lefty Grove, 1931, and Lynwood Rqwe, 1931. N a t i o n a l League pitcher rlichard Marquard holds the major, league consecutive season victory record with 19, .vhich he accomplished in 1912. Davis Claims Bowling Title FRESNO (AP) -- Dave Davis, whose last victory was in 1970, charged to the lead as the match game finals began in the $47,000 Fresno Open Bowling Tournament. Davis, a 12-lime Professional Bowlers Association iwinner, registered 1,902r pins on games of 249, 247, 226, 248, 225, 235, 237 and 235 through Sunday's competition to pull ahead of Earl Anthony, Tacoma, Wash., by 102 pins. In the head-to-head finals of PBA competition, the winner of each match receives 30 bonus points. As the 24-man finals line-up moved into today's,final two blocks of games, Anthony, trying for his fourth victory of the. year, had 6,301 pins--two less than Davis.
