ARKANSAS r . -- ^ ' With Or Without Striking Players NFL Teams Approach Preseason 3y THE ASSOCIATED PRESS ··,-, With or without their striking veterans, National Football 'League teams move toward "-their full-scale exhibition sea'"son this week with at least two meetings of league teams on "the schedule. ;·'· The highlight of the week is '"·on Saturday, when the St. Louis 'Cardinals and the Buffalo-Bills meet in Canton, Ohio, in the an- v.iual Hall of Fame game. The ··'game, which would have follow'-ed by one day the now-can- r called College All-Star classic, Is going ahead even though '.vboth clubs will field teams of rookies and free agents. Tho first paid "exhibition" of the season was Friday night in Washington, where a crowd of 14,207 showed up at Robert F. Kennedy Stadium to watch the Redskins in a "controlled rookie scrimmage." Quarterback Joe Theismann, the former Notre Dame standout who signed with Washington after playing in Canada, completed 15 of 35 passes for 209 yards and one touchdown. The Houston Oilers, who scrimmaged in a prison last week, wore to meet a semi-pro team in San Antonio on Satur- day night. This Thursday night, rookies and free agents representing the Green Bay Packers and Chicago Bears will meet at Lambeau Field in Green Bay. Adults will be charged $1; kids 60 cents. Neither the Bears nor the Packers have many veter ans in camp, the most notable being Green Bay linebackers Jim Carter and Larry Hefner. FAME GAME IMPORTANT The Hall of Fame game in Canton is important because it is the first official exhibition game, and also because it will be carried nationwide by ABC- TV, which has already lost the Ail-Star game. The Bills have 4$ rookies and free agents- in camp, but no veterans. On Saturday, 15 veterans, led by guard and player r e p r e s e n t a t i v e Reggie McKenzie, walked a picket line outside the Bills' camp. The Cardinals also have squad of 46, and It includes only two vets, linebacker Larry Stall!ngs and defensive tackle Bonnie Sloan. The National Football League claimed there were 104 veterans in the 26 NFL training camps as of the weekend, bul many of them are not regulars Teams with the most veteran In camp are the Cincinnati Ben gals with 17 and Super Bow champion Miami Dolphins wit Among the most notable vet erans in NFL camps are Jak Scott, Jim Mandich, Howar Twllley, Jim Langer and Ear Morrall of the Dolphins; Bo Johnson, Al Beauchamp, Bo Trumpy and Horst Muhlman of Cincinnati; Tommy Nobis c Atlanta; John Unitas of Sa Diego, and Ralph Neely of Da las. --AP Wireplioto CHIN UP, ROOKIE .. .Linebacker Randy Gradishar, the Veneer Broncos' No. / d r a f t choice, struggles with the bar during chin-up exercises as ihe NFL team began practice with rookies at Pomona, Call/.

Baseball's midsummer Commentator for the first All- Star telecast from Comiskcy Park in Chicago in 1950, the first All-Star Game ever televised, was Jack Brickhouse. the well-known spoiiscastcr who is n o w vice manager of C o n t i n e n t a l Company. president sports for anc WGN Broadcasting Brickhouse. an affable fellon who likes "some 'Gee Whiz enthusiasm in broadcasting sports," regards that 1950 All Star telecast as "the game thai established my friendship will NBC, a friendship that stil exists today." All told, Brickhouse worked five All-Star Games. But it was that first televised contest 25 years ago that stands ou clearly in his mind. "Without a doubt," tin Peoria, III. native recalled, "i was the most thrilling All-Stai Game played to that time...a H-inning sonofagun. The 'game itself was an announcer' dream -- it wasn't necessary to look for positives, becausi there were so many.

(AP) -A strike Saturday by track employes has threatened Mon day's scheduled opening of the 1374 racing season at Haze Park Race Course. Members of Local 69, Seryict Employes International Union voted overwhelmingly Saturday to strike the race track rejecting 313-24 the track management's "final" contrac offer. vith a homer in the 14th. Roland Martin (Continued from 38) Super-R-Rebel in crayfish colors -- tHe. same sort of lure reportedly used by the eventual winner of the tournament, Tommy Martin. I did not have such a lure, but experimenting with various baits I managed to catch a few small fish. After spending several hours on the north side of the Iflke -- especially in Ventris Hollow -- we crossed the rough channel and fished some protected water in and around Shaddox Creek. In this area I learned of Roland Martin's secret talent -- he is an excellent crappie fisherman. Using the same large billed crank baits that had been catching bass, Roland caught several very large crappie. But these bragging-sized crappie -- 15 inches and longer -- had to be put back into the lake. Only black bass count in a B.A.S.S. contest, and I had to put back the few crappie I caught. Yes, Roland outfished me in the crappie category as well as in the bass category! While in the cove near Shaddox we heard a sireu; we looked at one another and speculated about whether a tournament boat had been involved in an accident. Later we were to learn that an ambulance had picked up two tournament fishermen who had sunk their boat. But at the time I worried more about some of the fishermen we had seen earlier in small rental boats. As far as I know, none of the rental boats sank that day. But most of the people using them had the option of staying in protected water. The tournament boats were compelled to return to the marina by weigh-in time or lose points from their day's catch. _,,__.. .. .^·ui«iiiiiHiLir-inr-rtirr"Ti--* rT r *^ ' ' ' · x .

At that initial All-Star telecast 25 years ago, the basic camera complement consisted of three black-and-white cameras.
