(AP) -- Chris Evert jumped the gun on wedding tradition in her 1974 debut at the U.S. Open Tennis Championships. She wore something borrowed. Not for luck, but for lack of a dress, left behind in Greenwich, Conn., where she is staying during the tournament. She donned an understated little A-llne owned by Kris Kemmer and overwhelmed Gail Chanfreau of France 6-1, 6-1 on the West Side Tennis Club's grassy center court Wedneday. Then, the future Mr£. Jimmy Connors answered endless questions about her pending marriage. "I'm just glad the wedding Is only two months away," she said. "Then maybe all of the publicity will die down and we will nave some privacy. Miss Evert has won 13 events so far this year, including the last 10 in a row. Connors has won 11. Their most lauded victories, however, were at Wimbledon, which earned them their respective No. 1 seeds for Forest Hills. Although Chris is the bride to-be, Billie Jean King lookec more the part.

Anyway, that's what the 1973 squad set as its goal and Teaff had to buy such enthusiasm. Reality in the form of Oklahoma and Colorado and seven conference losses sent the Bears into a long off-season of soul searching. "Our goal this year is more realistic,"-,said Teaff Thursday on the Southwest Conference football writers tour. He explained: "Our goal is to have the first winning season at Baylor since 19G3 and piay in a bowl. EVEN IN THE CHILI BOWL "And we don't care if it's the Chili Bowl in Monterrey, Mexi CO." Teaff has started things off instilling a tad more dis pline on his squad. There are a.m. breakfasts the players nust make and they are asked obey an 11 p.m. curfew. Teaff feels the Bears couk ave shown more discipline oth offensively and defensively ast year.. The Bears were particularlj lumsy on offense, losing th all 50 times with fumbles and nterceptions.

Our line aver- ged 212 pounds last year. This ear it will average between 35 and 240 pounds." Defensively, Teaff promised, We're going to be hitters and et after people. We gave up 30 oints per game Last year. We .ill still have one of the small- r defenses in Ihe country but ve'll be quicker." Unfortunalely, Teaff opens he season against Ihe proba- ion-slained Oklahoma Sooners, vho have vowed to run up the icore against opponents this season. Teaff said, "Frankly, it's an awesome thing to be facing such a super team in the opener--probably the best team in America. Oklahoma just man- nandled people last year and that included Nebraska. "We will be walking a tight rope to get by our non-conference schedule with our heads up and bodies intact. But if we do walk that ti-ght rope we could come out of it a better football team." Teaff just doesn't want that tightrope to turn into a hanging noose like it was in unreal '73. Spirits Get Rights ST.
