(TIMESphoto by Ken Good) "S'Ji W e d n e s d a y afternoon and moving into the winners bracket. Victors in last, week's district competition, the local contingent surged into a earlyn lead which strongarmed. Lawson Osburn, who threw a four hitler and fanned eight, never lost. Shorlslop Bob Stephens launched the College Club scoring with his third home run in the last four games -- a 350-foot fly propelled over the in eft-center, tallying Rick Karn- jach, who had previously singled. In addition, two Stuttgart errors permitted Rick Tay- ior to contribute a third run in the fourth. During the next inning, a Karnbach ground-out spirited Jackie Davis, who had doubled, home with College Club's fourth run. In the seventh, Shelby Sizemore drove the second of his three doubles on one hop over the centerfield By THE ASSOCIATED PUESS Jim Corcoran re-established himself as King of the Hill. Matthew Reed made another successful appearance as a pretender to the throne. And Jefferson Davis very nearly became a knrght in shin ing armor. "King" Corcoran passed for a pair of touchdowns to lead the Philadelphia Bell to a 25-7 swamping of Portland. Reed once again took over for injured quarSerback George Mira and swept into the enc zone with about two minutes to play, giving Birmingham a 2118 victory over Detroit. And Davis, a reserve running back, rushed into the breach when Jacksonville's two quarterbacks were knocked out of action--but couldn't quite pull off a miracle arid the New York Stars held oil for a 24-16 victory over the Sharks. In Wednesday night's other World Football League game, Houston's offense finally scored a touchdown of -its very own- barely-- and the Texans eked out a 7-6 victory, over Florida, handing the Blazers their first setback.

The de- cnse .came within one yard _of ceeping that dubious record in- act. Daryl Johnson had provided the Texans with their only .ouchdown of the season with a 57-yard interception run. Against Florida, John Mallory ran 59 yards with an interception in the' opening minutes. On the next play, Jim Nance swept around left end for the touchdown The defense held Division-leading WASHINGTON (AP) -- Nego- iations toward ending the 32- a y-Old National Football ^eague player strike made leir first real headway Vednesday, as chief federal nediator W.J. Usery supervised nearly 14 hours of dis- ussions. The talks, which began at 10 t.m., EDT, and paused only for i two-hour lunch break, were ecessed at 1:50 a.m., EDT, to- lay. "There comes a point when t's best to break it o f f , and I nought it was the best .time TOW," a tired Usery said. The groups were to return to he bargaining table at 2 p.m., EDT, this afternoon. Usery would not elaborate on Drogress made in the session, Juring which he had met separately with representatives of be NFL Players Association and NFL Management Council. The groups held face-to-face discussion for only one hour and 45 minutes. "We have been talking on al ;he issues-- we've been talking ong and hard," said Usery "The logic is that now tha' we've got them talking, there's a chance to consummate an agreement. "We had suggestions back and forth. When you go back and forth, you don't know vhcfe you stand." But apparent progress had been made. Usery later told newsmen that "substantive issues had been discussed." The statement apparently re- errori to the "freedom issues" which created the bargaining stalemate and led to the player strike that started July 1. Today's talks marked the third consecutive day of ne- gotiaions, which were resumed after nine days of silence. Sources predicted today's session might go around the clock in an effort to reach an agreement. Neither group would comment on Wednesday's meetings. It was understood that the NFLPA had not presented a counterproposal to the freedom demands, a condition considered necessary for serious bargaining. A source close -to the strike talks, said Usery's goa was to persuade each side ' to consider proposals that woulc neither be totally accepted nor rejected outright. Reportedly, the joint sessions centered on revised economic conditions made by the players, vho were accompanied by an actuary. ' Meanwhile, the striking players received a boost from their working brothers on the baseball field. Marvin Miller, executive director of the Major League Baseball Players Association, voiced his support for the football union and charged NFL owners with a failure to bargain in good faith. But the NFL players' picket line continues to display gaps. Nearly 270 veterans, including 75 starters, have crossed the line. The latest dissenters from the position taken by the 1,200-member union were kicker Garo Yepremian, linebacker Mike Kolen and defensive back Tim Foley of Miami; safety Jack Mildren and linebacker Bob Geddes of New England; defensive tackle John Little of the New York Jets, and linebacker Don Rives of Chicago. In another development, veteran tackle Steve Chomyszak was traded by the Cincinnati Bengals to the Buffalo Bills in exchange for a late round draft choice. walked, Randy Porter stroked a run-producing single. Sizemore chose this occasion to lash his third double, scoring Osburn and Porter. Then, in the ninth, ,he hot-hitting Stephens singled to drive home Larry Atha with College Club's ninth run. For most of the game, Osburn's control had the home plite umpire cooing like a dove, but, following seven scoreless innings, he experienced his only lap.'.e in the eighth when Stuttgart tabulated its four runs, all unearned. The chaos occurred after the College Club stopper fanned the first two batters of the ii.ning. Two .walks issued by Osburn and an error on a pop by Randy Porter relinquished one run. A third walk to Randy Root loaded the bases for third baseman Charlie Holt who slammed a double to clear the sacks. But Osburn revived to entice Steve Schaeffer to ground out: Sizemore led the brutal gauntlet ol' College Club batters with his three doubles. Jackie Davis, Rick Karnbach and Bob Stephens added two hits apiece to the 12-hit Fayetteville assault. College Club, which has swept four straight play-off games in the last eight days, contends with Camden at four o'clock today. But Won't Panic Wadkins Slumping .; SUTTON, Mass. (AP) -- "I · j.;won't panic," Lanny Wadkins ·*'j;said. '.**; "I'm having a bad year. But i--I'm only 24. There's lots of '», time." :£ He paused and repeated him- ·Ji'Self: "I won't panic." Wadkins made the observation before teeing off today as defending champion in the ^200,000 Pleasant Valley Golf Classic. H e s e t money-winning ·rrecords each o f . his first two seasons on the tour, $116,616 as a rookie and $200,455. as a sophomore last year. He won three times in those two seasons and .^'ranked high among the most ;',' promising young professionals, :" This year has been a differ- · £ ent story. ;2 He's won only $47,697 with £ the season two-thirds gone. An · ·; eagle on the last hole 'got him a Ij; second place finish in Phoenix ··£ in January. He hasn't threat ;«. ened since. In one string of sev- « en consecutive appearances he ,,, missed the cut five times am vithdrew once. SLUMP LATE "He's having his sophomore slump one year late," one tour veteran said. Wadkins heemed to agree. "It's just a bad year," he said. "I've always been a good iron player. This year I've had a lot of trouble with my irons. My swing got kind of kinky. "I've been working on it. I mean really working on it, the hardest I've ever worked in my life. "It seems to be coming around. It's not all right yet, but it seems to be getting there. "And," he continued, ,a big smile breaking across his face. "It's just at the right time. I'd .sure like to be playing good in August." August is the richest month on the schedule. The five tournaments in the month offer $1,125,000 in total prize money. "If I could play good the rest of the season I could still make $200,000," Wadkins said. "And ook. If 'I win the PGA, well Slow-Pitch Softball League players. For the Sun and probably for the entire W o r l d Football League, Morrison said, money war to sign up players from the established league to join WFL clubs in future seasons has run its course. "The guys who got .the big money got it early," he said. "We're not goin tgo be so extravagant and offer contracts doubling a player's salary. , "We can still offer enough to improve a player's-lot, but,for the most part the extravagant contracts given to the Jim Kiicks and, Larry Csonkas were iust to .get us .off the dime. There will be no more of that. "We've got to be practical and offer X amount of dollars. If the player doesn't accept, then that's it. He can look elsewhere. It's economically unfeasible to continue giving w h a t Calvin Hill and some of the others got. "A guy playing, for $25,000 might get 530.000 or $35,000 from us, plus the opportunity to play, perhaps closer to home if that's the case, or if he's hav' ing problems where he is, he may have better surround ings." Morrison said he h a s signed five NFL players for future delivery whose names are being kept a secret by mutual desire until the end of the 1974 season. This, he said, allows t h e m , t o avoid pressures from their current organizations. He said there are about 100 such cases around the league- as has been previously reported. touchdowns in the Bell's 33-8 weeks ago. flipped two, this ' time to rookie tight end'LeVell Hill, a three-yarder midway in Blazers to two field goals.

Unlil this week, Shula kept lis composure on the strike and even laughed at jokes comparing his current team to last year's. Shula had maintained lhat respect among his veterans would let the leam regroup without anomosity after fhe strike. But doubt crept into his hopes this week when player representa live Doug Swift called veterans in camp "scabs." Swift, who later said he was joking, was also quoted as saying he hoped the Bengals "beat them like a gong." Shula, denouncing Swift, said, "It's been my desire to keep Ihis team together, but that's the most damaging thing that has been said." Pro Football Standings By The Associated Press W t T Pel. Pts.
