Baseball weather or not
It's a good thing that there are no major league baseball teams in Florida, because if there were,
they would have been rained out last night. At least that's what A.P. meteorologist Irving Hygro-
meter predicted in his forecast for yesterday made this morning. But Irving hasn't been the same b
since he had his corns removed, so if you really want to know, call Miami.
DAVIS CUP:
Netters shae on cay court

INDIANAPOLIS (W) - The
prestige. of American tennis will
be at stake in October when the
U.S. Davis Cup Team meets
either Brazil or Romania in the
Cup Challenge Round, and there
are some problems shaping up
already.
Non-playing U.S. team captain
Ed Turville was edgy Sunday aft-
er watching the finish of the Na-
tional Clay Court Open Cham-
pionships here. The players con-
sidered the best bets to perform
for the U.S. had a relatively
poor showing on the same sur-
face they'll use in the Challenge
Round.
Cliff Richey, the man slated
to be the top U.S. player in
singles, got to the finals but lost
to Yugoslavia's Zeljko Franulo-
vie in a lacklustre and subdued
performance.
The tall dignified Turville
said, "The recent poor showings
have opened up the entire field.
Except for Stan Smith there's
really no sure person on the
squad.
"Cliff has not had a good clay
court record. He has lost to
Jaime Fillol, Harold Solomon
and Zeljko on clay and this is
the only championship he has

reached this year," Turville
added.
He said, "Cliff is not the ag-
gressive player he was a year
ago or even at Wimbleton."
As for the rest of those in-
vited to attend the Davis Cup
Trials, Turville had some posi-
tive thoughts and some negative
ones.
"Certainly Clark Graebner, a
semifinalist here in singles and
a finalist in doubles had played
much better," Turville said.
"But Tom Gorman has been a
major disappointment on clay.
His losing in the first round here
in both singles 'and doubles was
a shocker for me.
"I am pleased, though, to
have Frank Froehling's serving
coming back. He'll be a tremen-
dous help in doubles for us if we
can team him with somebody."

Turville plans to do one thing
new during the upcoming trials.
"I will propose to bring in four
of our top college players. Pos-
sibly, Solomon, Jimmy Connors
the NCAA champion, Roscoe
Tanner who played well in reach-
ing the semifinals here and Ed-
die Dibbs who also reached the
semifinals.
"These kids, all Junior Davis
Cup Team members, are great
clay court players and they'll
give the others some good hard
work. We've got to keep in mind
that this is the last Challenge
Round and we have to look to
the future.
"Why," he added, "the Ro-
manians and Brazilians play on
nothing but clay courts over
there my boys won't touch a
clay court for five weeks."
