Bobby Riggs and Billie Jean King got into an eyeballtoeyeball name calling joust Wednesday on the eve of their winnertake all tennis battle of the sexes which broke into a squabble over whether Bobby is a creep I dont mind you calling me a hustler chauvinist pig or ego maniac the 55yearold Riggs told his 29yearold woman ad versary But you shouldnt call me a creep It is not a nice word Billie Jean didnt budge an inch It is not such a bad word in Beverly Hills she replied That was as far as she would go I think she should have apologized but she didnt Riggs said He said that Billie Jean used the term in a national magazine article Riggs and Billie appeared for a 30minute press conference in the bubble outside the Astrodome where their match will take place It was their first confrontation since reaching Houston Asked how she felt about Riggs who triggered this highly publicized match with his derisive comments about women in general and womens tennis in particular Billie Jean said I like him and I hate him He is so ridiculous Sometimes I laugh but mostly I get furious Making a prediction about the match Billie Jean said she ex pected the bestoffive match to go only three sets She left no doubt who she thought would win it Riggs said She expects to scrape me off the Astrodome floor I will scrape her up She is a woman and is subject to womens emotional frailities She will crack up during the match The pillgulping Riggs is a 52 favorite Earlier Billie Jean had been no worse than an 85 underdog against Riggs who shamed Margaret Court in their Mothers Day battle in San Diego May 13 The bestoffive set duel with optic yellow tennis balls which has excited and divided a nation is scheduled at 7 pm CDT over a synthetic green carpet The match will be shown na tionally by ABCTV and to some via satellite Europeans will have to stay up unil after midnight to view it Television sponsors reportedly paid a minute for com mercial TV time Houston Owens Defensive Stars Montreal And Cards Also Lose WASHINGTON AP When Washington Coach George Allen acquired Ken Houston from the Houston Oilers for five secondline players he was one of the few people who thought the veteran defensive back would be im portant to the Washington Redskins Since last May 15 however the Redskins secondary has learned how important it was to get Houston The Redskins had planned to play Roosevelt Taylor at free safety and Brig Owens at strong safety But Taylor broke his arm against Detroit in the opening exhibition game and will be out most of the season Owens moved over to the free safely position and Houston was inserted at strong safety Working together in their first regularseason game last Sun day Owens and Houston led a defense which helped shellshock the San Diego Chargers 380 Owens recovered a caused in part by a Houston scampered 36 yards for a touchdown Houston returned a fumble six yards and set up another Redskins touch down Houston intercepted two Johnny Unitas passes one setting up a touchdown Owens also picked off a Unitas aerial setting up a field goal For their efforts the Redskins secondary stars were named The Associated Press Defensive Players of the Week in the National Football League They also received the cheers of their teammates when Allen made the announcement at a meeting before practice Others nominated for defensive honors were Atlantas Tom Hayes

RidgwaysJohnsons 78 51 33 and NEW YORK AP The Billie Jean KingBobby Riggs tennis battle of the sexes has also become a battle of the vitamins and some specialists believe the latter is mostly nonsense Mrs King is said to be taking Vitamin E to build up her strength Riggs is reported tak ing enough Vitamin C to equal that in 2000 oranges a day ap parently plus other vitamins Whoever wins in Houston Thursday night it wont be an endorsement for either vitamin producing a powerful health ef fect One leading nutritional spe cialist described all this Wed nesday as 90 per cent non sense For one thing the Food and Nutrition Board of the National Research Council National Academy of Sciences has just put out a study of Vitamin saying that misleading claims that Vitamin E supplementation of the diet can help such things as muscular weakness are not backed up by sound ex perimentation or clinical ob servation The board said that because Vitamin E is widely distributed in vegetable oils cereal grains and animal fats it is Very unlikely there would be a deficiency in humans with the exception of premature infants or persons with a severe stomach ailment Some vitamins A and D are actually known to cause damage if taken in massive dosfis Massive doses of Vitamin A for example can cause headache and vomiting In general nutrition scientists say a person needs only a certain minimum level of nutrients in the body to maintain good health Below that level one becomes susceptible to illness above that there is no added benefit and perhaps damage due to an im balance of the nutrients As for the KingRiggs pill taking Dr Charles Glen King of Columbia Universitys Institute for Human Nutrition found it mostly nonsense es pecially Riggs Twosomes Tie In TCC Golf Two twosomes tied for

Stanton and Billy Parker hit runscoring singles to highlight the inning Steeler Lacks Grace But Catches Passes PITTSBURGH end John McMann says the Pittsburgh Steelers pay him to catch passes not to look graceful I dont care about my form says McMakin I hope they dont The secondyear receiver is not noted for blinding speed and his do not seem overly deceptive He lacks the form of a ballet dancer whenhe reaches for a pass But one tiling he does have according to Coach Chuck Noll is hands like a vice McMakin put his talents to use last Sunday when he made a leaping catch of a Terry Brad shaw pass in the end zone with Detroit linebacker Mike Lucci clinging to him I was just watching the ball McMakin said I dont know what he Lucci was doing The fourthquarter reception came when the Steelers were tied with the Lions and lifted them to a lead they never relinrfrished in a 2410 win But it was McMakins only catch of the day and he wasnt too impressed He said he thought he would never get one The Woot3 232pounder says he is still working on building up the confidence of Steeler quar terbacks in him Its been over a year and Im stai working on it he said The Oemson graduate was Pittsburgh third draft choice last year In Ms rookie season he caught 21 passes He acknowledges that his best performances come on Sunday not during the practice grind Ive never been great in practice he says Im not that concistent But I get up for a game and that has something to do with catching the ball

What our Customers Say:

"It is amazing how easy and exciting it is to access all of this information! I found hundreds of articles about my relatives from Germany! Well worth the subscription!" - Michael S.
