ARKANSAS · IS Trevino Hopes To Streak WETI1ERSF1ELD, Conn. (AP) -- Lee Trevlno, a notorious streak player, goes , t after a second consecutive victory this week in Ihe Sammy Davis Jr.-Greater Hartford Open Golf Tournament The flamboyant Trcvino, winner of the PGA National Championship last Sunday in Clemmons, N.C., heads a strong field arrayed for the Thursday slurt of Ihis $200.000 event thali offers a $40,000 first prize. "There's no reason I ought lo have a let-down," Tcovino said. "I've always been a streak player. When I get it going good, I usually keep it going for a while," ' Last season he "won twice--· both within a three-week span. And. of course, in 1971 he achieved that unmatched one- month sweep of the American, Canadian and British Opens. "Besides," Trcvino continued, "I usually play real good here." Again, the record book supports him. He won this tournament in 1972 and tied for third last year. And, while he's fresh off a victory in a major championship, he's taking a dead-serious approach to Ihis tournament.

The majority of players entering camps under the Association's 14-day, cooling off peri od, which is supposed to star 1 today, gave no signs of wanting :o walk out again in two.weeks regardless of the outcome o talks with 1 -, owners- scheduled to resume Thursday. "Maybe .one or two -individ uals would leave," admittet Simpson, -'but we. won't lea en masse. I wouldn't leave." If the players' .strike ap peared to be crumbling, the as sociation got some suppor from an 'unusual quarter whe 12 members of the House o threatened wners with a thorough in- ipeclion of tiro football's antirust status if they don't deal airly with the players.

"If they do not or if the union s sipnificantly injured, we want it known we will under- :ake a complete review of the Rational Football League's antitrust status, and it the facts warrant, introduce appropriate legislation." A M a n a g e m e n t Counci spokesman, in New York where an owners' group was meeting responded to Moss' letter, "We know that the record of- these negotiations will show that wi bargained in good faith," hi said. "We will invite Congress man Moss or any others to ex amine the record." Most veterans reported camps without incident hi there were exceptions in Ful rton, Calif., and Hunlsvitle n ex.

Klosterman said all 22 play a's, including player reprcsen ative Tom Mack, said they ha made their own decisions an vould stay. Los Angetes was apparent .he only organization official polling its players. In Huntsville, Coach Sid Gi .man, .a hard-liner who amon other things at first demande that all returning veterans sig a pledge lo stay in camp b later backed down, greeted : returning Oilers.
