That was a battle, also, with the runner- up spot taking a .switch on the llth and 12th tours before Sanger settled down. Sanger tried Kaker both high and low several times, but couldn't quite get the job done and had to settle for .sec- ond place by about five car lengths.

Garvey also said the Dolphins will meet Sunday morning to complete plans for picketing at the team's training camp. Rookies and free agents are to Past Russian Runners DURHAM, N.C.

But he'd like for his Ponomarev said people to know his name. Jones, angry at being the ''unknown runner" behind Steve Williams, sped to two gold medals in the U.S.-USSR track meet Friday. His efforts weren't enough to keep the Soviets from taking a 90-75 lead in the combined men's and women's competition and a 54-49 lead in the men's events. But Jones and his teammates from the National Collegiate Athletic Association champions at the University of Tennessee kept a depleted U.S. team from being run out of Duke Univer- sity stadium.

But at least one veteran play- er said he plans to cross the line, and indicated that others felt the same way.

He said other players also planned to cross picke' lines, but he declined to identi- fy them. Two other players indicated they were upset with some ol the demands of the players' as- sociation, but said they would not make a statement pending further consideration. No Backing Center Jim Langer, who ear- lier this week said that 80 per cent of his teammates want to play against the All-Stars, and inebacker Bob Matheson said the session produced good dis- cussion on both sides. But they added that they weren't yet ready to back either position. Placekicker Garo Yepremian said it appeared as if most ilayers were supporting the strike, and he would go along with whatever the majority de- cided. In a related development, Dolphin Coach Don Shula said n a speech Friday that the layers' demands "seems like someone's telling me how to un my football team."

(AP) Quick guards, led by Luther Burden paced an often-sloppy Ameri can basketball team to a 109-86 victory over Argentina Friday night in the World Basketbal Championship tournament. The victory was the thirt straight for the U. S. squat which exploded after Argentina had tied the game 8-8 in the early going. The American squad then scored 14 of the next 18 points to pull away. Burden, of Utah, finished the game with 22 points, while John Lucas had 15. In the other game at Ponce, Spain defeated The Phillipines 117-85 to gain a berth in the fi- nal round Sunday. In Group C competition at San Juan, Cuba edged Canada 10-79, while Czechoslovakia de- 'eated Australia 88-84.
