We were very pleased with both of them." Busby had missed 11 practices with a sprained back, and Daily seven with a bruised jaw. "Today's practice was a little better." said Broyles, who hac been unhappy with the Wednesday workout. "The hitting was much improved, so we cut the workout a little bit short. Broyles said the defense worked against the Southern California offense. "We took some film, which we'll correci and study," he said. He noted, however, that it will still be awhile before t h e Razop'jacks receive a scouting report on USC. "Up until noi he said, "we've been working the defense about half the time againsl the Wishbone and the other half against the Southern Cal offense. We'll work more on Southern Cal from here on. Asked if any individuals stood out Thursday, B r o y l e s said "Just the good ones -- the one: you'd expect. I imagine you gel tired oi' mentioning thei: names." Those mentioned most often so far have been senior tackle; Jon Rhiddlehoover and Brisoi Manor. Broyles did say that boll Scott Bui] and Mark Mille "looked good on the optip play."

I Gilliam's Talents On Line Against Jurgensen, Bradshaw By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS One of the most successful quarterbacks in the National Football League preseason has been Pittsburgh's Joe Gilliam. And when he leads the Steel- rs against the Washington Redskins tonight, Gilliam will be placing his skills in comparison with the Steelers' Terry Bradshaw and Washington's Sonny Jurgensen, two men who have made success a ha:)it. If Gilliam continues his success, it could mean failure for the two veterans. Gilliam this preseason has led the Steelers to four straight victories.' He has completed 53 of 86 attempts for 874 yard: and leads Ihe-league with seven touchdown passes. Meanwhile, Jurgensen, the 18-year veleran, is still trying to prove lie has recovered from off-season knee surgery and undergo a critical testing tonight that could nudge him onto the taxi squad and into ultimate retirement. Bradshaw also has been hampered by an injury -- to his passinig arm -- and has found himiself in the second slot behind Gilliam.

Snead, a former minor league baseball player and nephew of golfing great Sam Snead, fashioned a course-tying 64 Thursday to take a one-stroke lead in the rain-splattered first round of the $250,000 Tournament Players Championship, but he refused to let it get to him. "I try not to get excited," said the 32-year-old veteran who hasn't won on the tour in over two years. He belted out 10 birdies during his round, including five straight and seven on his first nine holes. He also had a pair of bogeys as he took his slim lead over obscure second-year pro Tom Evans, who had a 65 in the opening round which was marred by three thunderstorm delays. The weather caused play to be suspended for t w o hours. 35 minutes. The 45 players who did not finish their rounds will conclude their opening play today before the second round begins in this inilial TPC lournament. which is worth $50,000 to the vinner in addition to a 10-year our exemption and an in- ilation to the U.S. Open.
