Wood's slam, L
Tigers sweep; PI
TORONTO ()-Bad Bob Hewitt
lived up to his reputation yes-
terday at the $72,600 Canadian
Open Tennis Championships.
He slammed down his racquet,
kicked an empty linesman's
chair, disputed calls and belted
a ball that narrowly missed the
box seats.
And in Golden, Colo., the Bal-
timore Colts reduced the train-
ing camp roster 'to 60 players by
placing rookie quarterback Van
Brownson of Nebraska on
waivers.
The action left second-year
man Karl Douglas and veteran
Marty Domres battling for the
backup job to veteran John
Unitas.
Earlier in Boston a U.S. Dis-
trict Court judge ruled that cen-
ter Derek Sanderson and goalie
Gerry Cheevers remain bound to
the Boston Bruins of the National
Hockey League at least until Oct.
1 when their current contracts
run out.
,Magic Number: 44
The Tigers and their old re-
liable Woody Fryman won again
yesterday, 12-2 in their first
game and then Minnesota blew
a 6-3 lead in the ninth. Then
we went to bed.
BUT IN LAUREL, MD., Ken-
tucky Derby winner Ripa Ridge
and Roberto, winner of England's
Epsom Derby, were invited to
compete in the $150,000 Wash-
ington, D.C., International.
And in Southhampton Jeff Aus-
tin, the 'top seed from Rolling
Hills, Calif., gained the semi-
finals of the United States Ama-
teur Grass-Court Tennis Cham-
pionships by defeating Ross
Walker of England, 7-6, 6-4.
Alex Mayer Jr., the third seed .
from Wayne, N.J., also advanced
to the round of four by eliminat-
ing John Whitlinger, Neenah,
Wis.
However, in Munich, Germany
the list of nations threatening
to withdraw from the Munich
Olympic Games swelled, but none
of the teams installed in the
Olympic Village moved to pack
their bags.
Uganda and Mali were the
latest to join the boycott move-
ment because of Rhodesia's
apartheid policies.
At the same time in Vrsac,
Yugoslavia, The Olympic Flame,
lit in Greece, came into Yugo-
slavia with a Romania's Olym-
pic wrestling star, passed the
torch to Branislav Simic, Yugo-
slav Olympic gold medal win-
- ner in wrestling, at the Ro-
manian - Yugoslav border.
The torch will burn in Bel-
grade overnight, before pro-
ceeding north to Hungary,, Fri-
day.
Speaking of sports, in Lagos,
Nigeria, the Nigerian Olympic
Association announced it would
not join other African countries

ary's gem give
GA, NASL join
in withdrawing from the Mun-
ich Olympics because of Rho-
desia's admission.
We also learned from Mos-
cow that the Soviet Union will
send 507 athletes to the Munich
Olympic Games with entrants
in all events except field hockey.
On the other hand, in Balti-
more only 655 diehard fans -
thelowest crowd in Baltimore
history - paid their way into
Memorial Stadium to see the
Orioles lose a 6-1 decision to the
Chicago White Sox.
Bad news comes from Chica-
go where the Chicago Bears
traded quarterback Jack Con-
cannon to the Dallas Cowboys
for two players and Dallas'
second choice in the 1973 Na-
tional Football League player
draft.
Here's something we all want
to hear from Baltimore. Luis
Alvarado and Pat Kelly each
drove in two sixth-inning runs as
the Chicago White Sox whip-
ped the Baltimore Orioles 6-1
and moved to within a half
game of idle first - place Oak-
land in the American League
West.
Philadelphia didn't boo when
Steve Carlton became the Na-
tional League's first 20-game
winner this season with his 15th
consecutive victory. Willie Mon-
tanez and Deron Johnson hit
two-run homers to lead the Phil-
adelphia Phillies to a 9-4 tri-
umph over Cincinnati.
BELIEVE IT or not, some-
thing happened in Cleveland.
Lee Stanton hit two home runs
and Bob Oliver hit another for
all the California runs as the
Angels beat the Cleveland In-
dians 4-2 in American League
baseball action.
Many drunken bums in New
York saw Ed Kranepool break
a tie with a sacrifice fly in the
eighth inning and Tug McGraw
shut off a ninth-inning threat as
the New York Mets beat the At-
lanta Braves 2-1.
Here's one from Irvine, Calif.:
Duane Thomas showed up brief-
ly at the San Diego Chargers,
training camp, reportedly his
secondgvisit since being traded
by the Dallas Cowboys.
San Francisco was the un-
fortunate site of Jose Cardenal's
two-run homer in the third inn-
ing which powered Milt Pappas
and the Chicago Cubs to a 2-1
victory over the San Francisco
Giants in National League base-
ball.
In a lighter vein in Anaheim,
veteran relief pitcher Eddie
Fisher of the California Angels
was sold to the Chicago White
for the $20,000 waiver price.
In Sutton, Mass., John Shlee,
a lanky non-winner in his eighth
year on the pro tour, fired a
five-under-par 67 and took the
early first round lead in the
$200,000 USI Golf Classic.

American League baseball game a couple of weeks ago in a vain attempt to break up the double
play which resulted when Scheinblum smashed a hard bouncer to the left of Bill Melton, then playing
third base for the Chisox, who whirled and dired to Andrews for the force. Since that time Melton has
been shelved with an injured back and his White Sox teammates are in a heated pennant fight with
the Oakland Athletics.

NBC COVERAGE was absent
from Wichita, Kan. where the
defending champion Anchorage,
Alaska, club gets its first taste
of action this evening in the
National Baseball Congress
Tournament.
IN BOSTON the policy-making
council of the National Colle-
giate Athletic Association heard
and discussed committee re-
ports on recruiting, amateurism
and financial aid.
Finally in Washington, Con-
gressional leaders cheered 400
members of the U. S. Olympic
team, urging America's top ath-
letes to work as hard for peace
and international brotherhood as
they will for gold medals at the
Munich games.
Billboard
The Lions, who don't have a
defense, will be playing t h e
Browns, who do, here in Ann
Arbor Saturday August 20. Tick-
ets can be obtained at the Tick-
et office on the corner of Hoov-
er and State.
ROMAN WARRIORS
A bronze spar cap from a
Roman galley has been found in
Rhine River mud, showing that
Rome maintained warships in-
Germany at least 1,700 years
ago, the National Geographic
Society says.
