Pat Sullivan Rain fails to dampen Perry as he continues record pace Race results it had to happen. In this day and what with bloated egos and the United States has seen its first picket line in professional sport. In San Diego Wednesday according to an Associated Press a group of burly athletes took up the call of organized labor by setting up the first picket line as strik- ing National Football League veterans pressed their freedom demands. Hit suddenly by dissension in their own and denied permission to picket on a college representatives of the NFL Players' on strike to press demands that they be permitted to determine who they play set up the picket line at the training camp of the San Diego Chargers. The picket lines went up minutes before rookies and free agents were due to report to the Chargers' the first NFL camp to open. Eugene owner of the says that 33 or 34 of the expected 54 rookies and free agents had arrived Tuesday and were expected in camp. Klein has failed to bow to player and fully expects to start the NFL season with only his rookies and free agents. For the decision was an easy one. His veterans did very little to impress in the field of combat last year so a change may just serve to be as good as a rest. Early arrivals on the picket line were Bill Curry of Houston president of the Alan Page of the Minnesota Ed Podolak of Kansas City Chiefs and Ray May of Denver Broncos. all is not a bed of roses for Ed executive director of the and his band of veteran holdouts. Most of the rookies and free agents have expressed a desire to be on hand when training camps open. Jesse one of the Chargers' first round draft choices and a quarterback said he would cross the picket line.

Some players have their helmets screwed on say the owners This has led to dissension in the veteran ranks. John Hanna of New England Patriots and Jim Langer of Miami Dolphins are just two veterans who plan to attend train- ing camp. They both agree the players' demands are out of whack. You might recall a similar situation three years back when veteran players boycotted training camps. It wasn't a strike and there were no pickets. They make demands and threaten the opening of the NFL season. Mike an all pro middle linebacker with Baltimore was the only player to indicate he would report to training camp Curtis defied the players' association and he does now. Curtis was a Lethbridge visitor a few months after the NFL season had ended. He made it very clear why he had reported to camp and refused to be intimidated by the other players in the league. a handful of players and agents are causing the he said. can't agree with so I will not join He added that he is paid very well for playing football.

It wasn't that the Los Angeles Dodgers' iron man was tired after pitching in a record 13 consecutive games. There just was no point in calling for him in the second game of Wednesday night's National League baseball doubleheader at Cincinnati. The Reds got too far ahead too quickly for Marshall to be able to do anything about the 6-0 Cincinnati victory. For a it appeared that Marshall's record streak might end at an even dozen games. Tommy John was sail- ing along smoothly in the opener. But when the Reds put two men on base with one out in the manager Walt Alston summoned Marshall into his- 53rd game of the season and 13th in a row. Marshall responded by striking out Johnny Bench and getting Tony Perez on a grounder for his llth save of the season. He has also won 10 games.
