dianapolis Motor Speedway Practice for the May 25 Indy 500mile race was scheduled to start Saturday but was rained out Scott a former drag racing champion from San Bernardino Calif was the first driver on the famed oval Sunday go ing out only moments ahead of veteran Dick Simon The 26yearold Scott in his first day of driving here easily completed both phases of his refresher rookie test US Auto Club officials gave him the two part test instead of the usual fourphase exam because he already has qualified and raced this year at both Phoenix and Ontario Calif Scott did a steady 10 laps at 170 miles per hour in an Of fenhauserpowered Webster racer then turned in 10 more between 170 and 174 mph before officials okayed him for faster speeds Sirois of Hammond Ind caused the biggest stir when he crashed his Foytpowered Eagle against the outside wall on the first turn only 18 minutes after the practice session began He lost control on the inside of the first turn skidded backwards 329 feet into the wall slid 66 feet more and wound up uninjured in the middle of the track Sirois had just completed a lap of 1508 Although only seven cars made it onto the track for the rain delayed opening of practice chief steward Tom Binford removed the 180 mph limit midway through the afternoon However the top lap came before the limit was removed when Simon turned a lap at 179 mph in an Eagle Foyt Two members of last years front row Mike Hiss and Wally Dallenbach made it onto the asphalt Sunday but did not get up to speed With the first weekend pf qualifications only six days away most of the top drivers chose to play a waiting game either rac ing in a sprint car event at Terre Haute Ind or holding off until the Speedway track has more rubber on it Most of the 20 cars which had passed technical inspection by the end of the day stayed off the track because of gusty winds By days end 44 cars were quartered in the Speedway garage area Its No Joke Iowa Sweeps Badgers E LM1 McF

Tennis Prof NEW YORK AP At 23 Jimmy Connors is too young to think he can control the world and needs a good spanking a Pacific Coast tennis professor who doubles as a psychiatrist says He is a spoiled frightened kid who is the victim of a lot of people using him to their advantage added Vic Braden He hasnt found himself When he does he should be fun Braden is headmaster of a unique tennis college in Goto de Caza Calif midway between Los Angeles and San Diego which utilizes modern laboratory techniques and psychology to turn out tennis players on an as semblyline basis You may go to Harvard to study law Vanderbilt to become a doctor and Cornell to learn the hotel business But if you want to learn how to hit a tennis ball you can sign up with the Vic Braden Tennis College The institution provides crash courses costing for two days and for five days During that period students undergo a whirlwind curricjilum including clinics court drills classroom strategy sessions instructional films and psychology courses Braden doesnt guarantee that in a couple of years you will be making a but he vows you will be graduated with a degree not only in better stroke production but in court behavior Connors does things that an 11yearold kid might do out of petulance but unlike the 11 yearold he doesnt get paddled for it Braden said He gets away with saying the worst things and making the most ob scene gestures He is hostile an tiestablishment guiltridden He is the product of a sport that was maligned for years considered a sissy game Like others he is exercising resent ment For years tennis players found themselves champions of nothing Now that there is a boom and they are in the public eye playing for thousands of dollars they dont know how to handle it Billie Jean King is much like Jimmy aggressive often in considerate of promoters and fans btlligercnt to linesmen and umpires I think Jimmy will find himself before Billie Jean does Braden and his wife Melody the colleges official pho tographer were in New York last week to promote their complex which is part of a 5000 acre ranch in a lush area of Orange County The college includes seven courts lying beneath an instruc tional tower a 200capacily classroom with sophisticated audiovisual equipment photo laboratory 17 training alleys ball machines and an eight member instructional staff Braden is a short husky man in his 40s who was infected with tennis fever at Kalamazoo College in Michigan long a proving ground for American juniors He majored in psychology got a masters degree at UCLA and California State in Los Angeles taught school for a while and then joined Jack Kramer in the promotion of the pro tennis tour In 1963 Braden built the Kramer Tennis Club in Palos Verdes Peninsula and taught tennis for six years from 7 am until 10 pm seven days a week before moving to the softer life as headmaster of his own college He now has assistants to do most of the hard work Kramer has referred to him as the worlds No 1 tennis coach When I was in school I was more intercsled in football basketball and baseball Braden says I liked tennis But it was awfully demoralizing to try to play VIC BRADEN Tennis wasnt on the athletic program Coaches all looked down their noses at it If the coach found an athlete who couldnt cut it in football baseball or basketball he would suggest taking up tennis The football and baseball players always passed the tennis courts on the way to the practice field They would yell tuttifrut ti and other insults at us and laugh at our white snorts I feel that this is the reason that tennis has developed so many hangups while also producing many fine athletes There are some who seem to be trying to get even for all of the indignities theyve suffered in the past Braden said court demeanor is a vital part of the curriculum in his college We try to play down the old athletic axiom that winning is everything ho said In every tennis match there has to be one winner and one loser So 50 per cent always lose We donl feel that the latter 50 per cent should feel commuted to failure in life
