' · ··: The National Football League appears -- for the first time s i n c e March -- to be on the verge of getting down to serious business on the field as well as at the bargaining table. All 26 NFL. player representatives have reportedly been summoned to Washington tor a meeting. It is not certain when a meeting off all player representatives could take place, but reports were the meeting was called to vote oh a new contract offered by the owners! But Ed Garvey, executive director of the NFL Players Association, denied that and saic it's just to reassess , the NFLPA's demands in the 40 day strike, And the-NFL Management Council confirmed that il has offered no new .contract proposal. If it turns out that the dispute s. indeed, on the threshhold of eing ended, near-capacity or ull houses may be the order of .he day a week from now when NFL teams swing into the third week of preseason play. · But for now, it'll still be more empty seats than full ones in most of the parks. Baltimore and Washington will find out iust how empty -- or full -- ionight.. ARTHUR .TO START The Colts open their exhibition schedule against the visiting Detroit Lions, who will start Bruce Arthur at quarterback. Arthur, who played at the University of Toledo, was out of football last season. The Colts will counter with Tom Pierah- tozzi, who spent his 1973 rookie season on the inactive roster after playing in one preseason game. : : . The Redskins, who played their first preseason game a week ago before 16,403 fans in 54,374-seat RFK Stadium, host he Houston Oilers. And Washington's game may not be the only one in l o w n. ?aris may get an opportunity to see plenty of veterans from the Sedskins and other teams -- )laylng touch football outside RFK Stadium in a parking lot. 'It will be free and a lot better than the game inside," one striking player observed. The NFL is extending its policy of giving refunds to exhibition ticket holders on a week-to- week basis, depending on the progress of the negotiations. On Saturday, Atlanta plays Oakland at Berkeley, Calif., 'hiladelphia is at Cincinnati, Jew Orleans visits Miami, St. Louis faces Green Bay at Milwaukee, Minnesota is at Denver, Los Angeles hosts Dallas and the New York Jets play at San Diego.

"Forget about the other guys. Just keep winning. Evntually, we'll get to where we're supposed to be."
