MINNEAPOLIS - University of Minnesota wide receiver
Mike Jones is scheduled to have torn cartilage removed from his
left knee today and will miss at least the first month of the
football season.
Jones, the third leading receiver in the Big Ten last year,
suffered the injury in spring practice. A decision to remove
torn cartilage from the knee was made yesterday after another
examination of the injured area.
The 6-foot-3, 185-pound senior from Detroit caught 29 passes
for 473 yards last season.

PONTIAC, Mich.-The Detro nns relised two nore players
yesterday, bringing the team's roster to 58 players, club officials

Released were George Farmer, a 28-year-old wide receiver
in his seventh year with the National Football League, and
23-year-old linebacker Andre Roundtree, a second-year man
from Iowa State.
Farmer, formerly with UCLA, joined the Lions last year from
Chicago. He played the last six games of the season, catching six

NEW YORK-An ABC spokesman says no promotion or de-
motion was involved in the shuffling of broadcast teams for Monday
night baseball telecasts.
The trio of Bob Prince, Warner Wolf and Bob Uecker had
been highly promoted as ABC's main baseball broadcasting team.
Monday night, Al Michaels joined Wolf and Uecker for the Balti-
more at Minnesota game. Meanwhile, Prince was teamed with
Bob Gibson and Norm Cash for the Texas at New York game.
The ABC spokesman said yesterday the move was made
because the network would be broadcasting three regional

wanted to test the chemistrv. "It was just experimentation," the
spokesman said. "We wanted to find out which two guys would

BETHESDA, Md. (M) -- Dave
Stockton's victory Monday in
the Professional Golfers Asso-
ciation championship, spreading
the year's four major golf titles
among four different men, ac-
cents the growing elusiveness
of golf's modern Grand Slam.
It is a goal that probably will
never be reached.
"I suppose it is possible but
I would say very improbable,"
says Arnold Palmer.
"I don't think one man will
ever be able to-win the four big
championships in a single
year," adds Tom Watson, who
won the British Open a year
ago. "There are too many good
golfers today."
"To win the Grand Slam
would be almost as hard as
matching Byron Nelson's record
of 11 straight tour victories,"
said Jerry Heard. "Both are al-
most unthinkable."
THE PRO F E SSIO N A L
Grand Slam consists of win-
ning the Masters, U. S. and
British Opens and the PGA in
a single year. Some have come
close. None has ever achieved
it.
The term was borrowed from
the Phenomenal achievement of
the late legend of amateur golf,
Bob Jones, who in 1930 won the
U. S. Amateur and Open and
the British Amateur and Open
and retired at the 'age of 28
with 14. major chamnionshins.
Jack Nicklaus, counting four
titles in the PGA in which
Jones was inelieible to com-
pete, has soared past Jones'

record of major crowns with a
total of 16 but has been unable
to fashion anything resembling
the Atlanta marvel's Grand
Slam.
"It is one of my goals in
golf," Nicklaus has said repeat-
edly of the pro Grand Slam.
N I C K L A U S is now 36.
He is devoting less time to
tournament golf and more to his
mushrooming business interests.
It seems only natural to expect
him to be less of a factor than
when he was 10 years younger
with fewer distractions and
more hunger.
Most observers thought, go-
ing down the stretch and lead-
ing at one point, there was no
way to keep the prize out of

Big Jack's chubby fingers. But
Nicklaus proved to be human,
after all. He double-bogeyed the
sixth hole and bogeyed three
others on the back nine, finish-
ing two strokes back.
"It started to happen to me
when I got into my mid-30's,"
said Palmer, now 46. "Tourna-
ments that I once could reach
out and grab started getting
away from me. Jack will find
it happening to him, more and
more."
"Nicklaus is the best," said
Watson, "but the tour is just
too tough today. No one man
can dominate to the extent that
he can set his sights on the four
major championships and win
them all."
