The word has it headway made WASHINGTON Although both sides have taken a vow of it appears some headway has finally been achieved between National Football League owners and their striking players. The latest round of begun Friday behind closed doors at the labor was to continue today. Friday's the first to follow a week-long produced an agreement that neither side would make any further public statements about issues. Federal mediator James assisted by former Atlanta player Lewis would say only that spent the day reviewing clarifying any questions on positions.

That is until he won Friday's feature race. With the last races for 1974 set for today at Whoop-Up Woods has no am- bitions of overcoming Elijah Bourne for top jockey honors. But for himself it is proving time and he seems to be win- ning. No one is saying Whoop-Up Downs is Aqueduct or but after the pounding Woods took proving himself on it is a welcome relief. In the featured seventh race Friday Woods and his mount What A fought off the challenges of Jeffaway and Fire Line to win the Alec Arms Hotel feature race for the Baha Tinda Stock Farm. Bill West trained the winning horse. What A time for the seven furlong distance was a rather quick trip around the track. The seventh was also one ot the four quinella's Friday as What A Blend and Jeffaway. ridden by Howard Boggs com- bined for a payoff after Jeffaway survived a photo finish battle with Fire ridden Al Jeffries. Friday's eighth race saw a change of winners as stewards upheld an inquiry. Dreamin who could find the way around the Whoop-Up Downs track blind- folded through won with Mark Jensen aboard. somewhere along the line Dreamin Demon and Cariboo the third place finisher at the finish interfered with Fleet Flitter. The results their misfor- tune saw them punished as Fleet with Betty Dunham in the moved into Cariboo Trail remained third while Dreamin Demon was dropped from the money. The victory in the eighth race went to Little with Boggs up. The win for Little together with Fleet Flitter was worth to ex- actor bettors.
