Williams wins
KINGSTON, Jamaica-Steve Williams, the American sprint
star whose Olympic hopes in the past were shattered by injuries,
overtook a star-studded field last night and captured the 100-meter
dash in 10.26 seconds in he first Jamaica Invitational Track and
Field Meet.
Williams was running third at the midway point of the race
when he made his move, hitting the tape just ahead of two
fellow Americans, Steve Riddick and Houston M cTear. Rid-
dick's time was 10.31 and McTear's was 10.33.

Billy bawled out
NEW YORK-Gabe Paul, president of the New York Yankees,
lashed out at Manager Billy Martin yesterday over remarks con-
cerning the club's refusal to recall veteran catcher Elrod He-
dricks from Syracuse of the International League.
At the same time, the Yankees filled a vacacy on their roster
°" by recalling outfielder Dell Alston from Syracuse.
Martin, angered over playing several games one man be-
low the 25-player limit, had criticized Yankee management
for delaying his requested recall of Hendricks after the club
lost a game Wednsday night at Seattle. The Yankees also lost
to the expansion Mariners Thursday night.
"The decision on the 25th player was delayed pending dispo-
ttion of various negotiations with other clubs and examination of
the players at Syracuse," said Paul. "Certain comments directed
at Mr. George Steinbrenner, the club's principal owner, by Manager
Billy Martin concerning his (Steinbrenner's) alleged failure to add
a 25th player are totally inaccurate and unfounded."
Hopkins hired

job "six or eight years ago," finally rose to the top yesterday when
he was named to replace Bill Russell as head coach of the Seattle
Supersonics ofthe National Basketball Association.
The 42-year-old Hopkins was given a one-yepr contract by
Sonics' president and principal owner Sam Schulman, who last
week reached agreement with Russell to buy out the fifth and

final year of Russell's $200,000 annual contract as the club's
AP Phot8 coach and general manager.
In r t"Over the last three years, he (Hopkins) has operate under
, yesevere and difficult conditions . . . but he met the challenge and
Jimmy Connors is shown making overhand return to opponent Eddie Dibbs in semifinal match deserves the chance and support to do it on his own," Schulman
in the WCT tourney yesterday. Conners won 64; 7-S, 6-1, to qualify for Sunday's finals, told a news conference introducing his new coach.
