He pitched against Chicago Cubs last Sunday, St. Louis Cardinals Wednesday and in an exhibition game Monday night in his hometown of Columbus, Ga. "I had a day's rest Thursday so I feel he added. The loss dropped the Pirates a half-game behind the New York Mets in the NL East. The Mets beat San Diego Padres 5-5 Friday night. Elsewhere, Chicago took a twi-night doublehearfer from West Division-pacing Cincinnati Reds, 7-1 11-7; St. Louis whipped Houston Astros 5-1; San Francisco Giants took a pair from Philadelphia Phillies 8-3 and 7-2, and Los Angeles Dodgers beat Montreal Expos 8-5 in the opener of a double- header. Their second game was rained out. Pat J a r v i s, the Braves' starter, picked up his 12th vic- tory in 20 decisions but had a few nervous moments before Wilhelm put down the. Pirates' uprising. "I was nervous when Hoyt was pitching to Matty said Jarvis alter watching Wil- helm face the ninth-inning jam. "He punches the ball. That's the kind of a guy who usually hits a knuckler." The Pirates had men on first and second with1 one out, but Wilhelm settled things quickly. He got Alou to fly out and struck out Kch Hebner. Players Give Hint Strike May Be Over By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Each-side of the pro football war continued today to play a wailing game, but there were a few hints the bitter stalemate might be settled before the weekend is over. Kansas City Chiefs, easy 24-3 victors Friday night over the College All-Stars, planned, meanwhile, to disband today if he dispute isn't settled by thej ime they reach homebase from Chicago. Less than 20 veteran players were in the training camps of he other 23 National Football teams Friday lours after owners lifted their ockout and the NFL Players Association officially declared it fas on strike, a situation that las existed for three weeks. Various sources, however, rickled reports of an imminent settlement. The Los Angeles Times, in a dispatch from Chi- cago, quoted an unnamed own- spokesman as saying the ikelihood of an agreement was 'much better than even money." The same story quoted a player spokesman as saying it was "about an 80 per cent chance." Stormy Bidwell, president of the Si. Louis Cardinals, said he looks "for a break in this thing in a few days."

Norman carded the lowest competition round at the Lorette Golf Club in nearby Loretteville with identical nines of 34. It was the first time par had been broken in competition at the club since 1963. The rain forced the cancella- tion of at least 26 scores as offi- cials decided that players on the course during the downpour would begin at ihe same point today. Players were held up at die 16th hole. Many of the golfers wera upset with the ruling but tourna- ment officials, said "this is the way it's going to be." LEADg BY TWO Behind Norman was his play ing partner' Chick Evans of Bur- lington, Vt., who fired a two-un- der-par 70. Tied with him were Herb Holzseheiter of Ashburn, Ont., Jay Dolan of Worcester, Mass., Bob Shave of Hollywood, Fla., and Jack Bissegger of Montreal. Bidwell, however, warned that if his players don't get in camp so the team can play ex- hibition games tbs Cardinals might cancel all regular season contests. "We'll go just so far and we'll cancel B i d w D 1 i said at Lake Forest, 111., where St. Louis' rookies are training. "We won't go a whole preseason without a game and then let the players say 'Okay, we'll play the regular season.' BidwelTs Cardinals were one of 16 teams without a single vet- eran player in camp. In the other nine training camps there was a combined total of 17 play- ers. Tommie Agee's bases-loaded single in the sixth capped a three-run rally that helped the Mets top the Padres. New York trailed 5-3 when Cleon Jones and Wayne Garrett singled with one out. Joe Foy singled to score Jones and pinch-hitter Dave Marshall walked to load the bases and set it up for Agee. BENCH BELTS 3Glh Bill Hands fashioned a five- hitter in the opener and Glenn Beckort had three hits and Bon Saato four to pace a 16-Kit at- tack in the nightcap as Chicago took a pair from Cincinnati. The Reds' Johnny Bench hit his 36th homer in the opener. Steve Carlton singled across a run in the four-run eighth to break up a scoreless duel with rookie Ron Cook and St. Louis cruised over Houston.
