(AP Wlrephoto) During Two Week Cooling Off Period Vets To Practice WASHINGTON (AP -- From the sublime to the ridiculous. That's -ioeen the mood throughout, the 42-day-old National Football League strike- and that's the mood now that it might be closer to a settlement than ever -before. The" strike reached a watershed phase Sunday when the NFL Players Association's seven-member executive committee agreed to a suggestion by.federal.mediator W.J. Usery Jr. that the veterans . report to training camp for 14 days starting Wednesday, a sort of "cooling-off"- period while stalemated negotiations starting Thursday. continue, Thus, an even more critical stage ma yarise in two weeks, if a settlement isn't reached by Â·then. It could go one of two ways. Either the veterans could walk out en masse, once again threatening the season that is now barely a month away. Or the strike could be, for all intent and purposes, broken-and the union's strength severely sapped--if a majority of the players, with two weeks of solid training under their belts; decide to slay in camp,. The decision' to return to camp and play in the next two weeks of exhibition games was by no means unanimous. Although no tally was released, it appears the v o t e was a slim one, perhaps passing by only a 4-3 margin. When ' the executive committee member left the Labor Department offices, scene of ,he prolonged talks, none of them was smiling. Some were obviously bitter, muttering that the new turn of events was a step toward ending not the strike but the union's strength. Ed Garvey wasn't smiling ei ther. But the executive director of the NFLPA was pragmatic about the .situation, explaining that while the owners have the resources to withstand a prolonged strike, the players simply don't. The idea of working--that is, reporting to training camp-during negotiations, then strik- ng if no settlement is achieved, happens in industry regularly. And it was considered months ago when the players association first met in Chicago. But the idea was voted down then. And now that they're willing -- somewhat reluctantly--;Lo report, at least one coach and one owner don/t want them. Some o t h e r s fee] it's just a gambit. A n d some players believe the strike's death knell has been .sounded. "I'm not about to take a vet eran under those conditions,' Houston Coach Sid Gillmai said. "All it would dp is disrup our camp. To come in and then maybe walk out two weeks lat er is the most ridiculous thin I've ever heard of." Bud Adams, owner of the Oi' crs, agreed. "We want player who will come to camp an stay," he raid. "If they a come in, we may be forced t cut some of our rookies an then they (the veterans) migh walk out again. We'd -be bac where we started, without an players." Pearson Traded PITTSBURGH -- The Pittsburgh Steelers traded wide receiver Barry eParson to t h e Kansas City Chiefs for a future draft choice. By WILL GIUMSLF.Y AP Special Correspondent CLEMMONS, N.C. (AP) -he clown prince of big time olf is back, and everybody is ailing him as a king. "Do you feel like the old Tre- ino?" Lcc Trevino was asked unday after he had beaten out ack Nicklaus by a stroke in a lift-hanging victory for the 6th PGA Golf Championship. "I don't know how the old revino felt." the bouncy, ^ullicnt Mexican-American re orted. "Maybe I will have to sk my wife." It was hot and humid and here was.no icy drink waiting he quip. He has a rich home- pun philosophy. He is to golf what Yogi Berra a n d Dizzy )ean have been to baseball and Vluliammad Ali--without Ali's occasional venom and militancy -- to boxing. He has enriched the game or the new American ional champion. profeS' with both his I'rcvinoisms: skill and his "If you keep your mouth shut too long, you get bad breath." "I missed three fairways-Ihe first and 15th." 'Now that I got all this money, maybe I'll buy the Alamo and give it back to the Medians." "I come from such a poor family, my sister was made in Japan." - . Since Trevino joined the tour in 1907, he has established himself as one of the giants of the game--twice U.S. Open and twice British Open victor, winner of 18 tour victories anc banker of more than $1,270,000 in golf purses alone. Ilis first PGA triumph solidi- ied his position as one -of the hree best players of the current era along with Jack Nickaus-and. Gary Pluyer. He gave one o f ' h i s most impressive: and gutty performances in winning the 1974 PGA crown in a head-to-head duel vith Nicklaus, who had to be content with the second purse of $25,700 after finishing one stroke back. Trevino has become a personal nemesis of the great Nicklaus, beating him in a playoff for the U.S. Open crown in 1971 and also beating him out foi the .British Open titles in 1971 and 1972. . Nicklaus paid him the supreme tribute after Sunday's futile chase over the 7,050-yard par-70 Tanglewood course. "This man is fantastic.' Nicklaus said. "He hardly made a mistake out there. He hit almost every, fairway am every green. I hate to lose bu when a guy plays as well as Lee did, there is nothing one Oliver First In CAN AM Event Petty Adds Tatiadega Check By THE ASSOCIATED TRESS Richard Petty is slowly but iurely putting- all- ot the stock car racing records out of reach f anyone, even those drivers vho follow him to the big racks of the South. The 36-year-old "big fellow" 'rom the red clay hills of North Carolina won for the first time Sunday at one of only two major ovals that had ever denied lim victory: Alabama International Speedway i n - t h e TalL- adega 500- Only five years ago, wlien the !.li6 mile tri-oval opened, Petty ed a group of drivers who boycotted the inaugural race because of the speeds they attained on the 35-degrce banking. "We were running 200 mile .aps around. here then, 11 he said, "and the tire companies ladn't come 'up with rubber that would stand up under the punishment. . I still think we were right, because we got better tires for the next race." Petty already past the $1.7 million mark in career prize money, beat old foe David Pearson by half a car length in Sunday's sixth Talladega 600. It was one of the most breathtaking finishes in the history of slock car racing. It was his I62nd career .riumph, and it placed him so 'ar ahead of other challengers in the Grand National cham- jionship points battle that lie almost can count Â· on winning his f i f t h driving title. And Britisher Jackie Oliver practically locked up the Can- Am road racing championship by winning his fourth event in the series at Mid-Ohio near Lexington Sunday. Oliver, driving a Shadow, av- eruged 102.085 miles an hour in beating Britain's Brian Redman, who was tooling Roger Penske's 1973 Porsche for the first time. There are only two races left in the Can-Am series and Oliver would have to wash completely out of them to lose the title. In ' other Â· action, retiring Peace Corps director Nicl Craw won a 100 mile race fo small sedans at Talladega. H averaged 95.110 m.p.h. in BMW to beat Dennis Shaw o Raleigh, N.C., in a Gremlin. In Milwaukee, Gordon John cock held off late, charges bj A.J. Foyt and Wally Dallcn bach to win the Tony' Bet tenhausen 200 mile race with State Fair Park Track recor of 18.752 m.p.h. It was Johncock's first championship car victory since November, 1973. Petty pocketed $21,365 and raised his season's total to 5201,120. Pearson was paid $12,590 and now stands at $144,250. an do." . Trevino fired a final 69--a core matched by Nicklnus--for 72-hole score of 27C, four-un- er-par. Nicklaus finished at 77, with the closest other pur- ucrs a quartet two shots far- icr back at 279. They were the a n I a s I i c , 02-year-old Sam Snead, 69; Dave Hill, 69; Hubert Green, 70, and Bobby Cola of South Africa, 71. The final round Sunday evolved into a three-way battle among Trevino. Nicklaus and Cole, with Trevino never onca losing the lead although young Cole, 26, pulled even five times.
