Top-seeded Mrs. Court won the Australian, French, Wimble- don and Forest Hills titles two ago, but missed Wimble- don in 1972 and the honors went to Billie Jean King of Long Beach, Calif Both players drew first-round byes this year.

Chris is slated to Fliii Floii in trouble SASKATOON (CP) Con- cern over lack of fan support at home games could lead to a review of the Flm Flon Bomb- ers franchise at the next meet- ing of the board of governors of the Western Canada Hock- ey League, president Ed Chy- noweth of Saskatoon said Mon- day. He said in a statement that it is of deep concern to the WCHL that Flin Flon fans have not seen fit to provide better home support to a club that has been a consistent winner. Because the league had a gate equalization plan, it was "most imperative that all clubs try to carry their own load. play Fiorelli Bonicelli of Italy while Evonne opens her Wim- bledon competition against Betty of the Netherlands The walkout by 70 members of the Association of Tennis Professionals cut the original men's entry 'ist but didn't dampen fan reaction Monday.

The ATP players voted to boycott Wim- bledon in support of Yugo- slavia's Nikki Pilic, who was barred from competition for failing to participate in a Davis Cup match. Nastase and England's Roger Taylor, who refused to join the boycott, were greeted by cheers. Taylor then defeated France's Jean Louis Haillet 6-2, 6-3, 6-3.

Phone 327-8889 Southern largeit and Most Progressive Motorcycle Dealer NEW YORK (NEA) Walter Alston, legs crossed, leathery face creased, leis- urely smoking a cigarette, sat recently in the Dodgers' dugout where he has sat for the last 20 years, incredibly, imperturbably. He came out of nowhere- well, if you consider Darr- town, Phio (pop, nowhere to manage in Brooklyn, which, in baseball in 1954. was indeed some- where. Virtually every year for about the next decade or so, after, Alston was supposed to be fired. Every year he wasn't. The Dodgers are now into their third major change- over in personnel in the last 20 years. First there was the team of Robinson, Ers- k i n e, Hodges, Newcombe, Campanella. Then came the Koufax, Drysdale, Roseborp, GiUiam years. Now there is Short sport McKINNIE TO STAMPS HAMILTON (CP) Hamil- ton Tiger-Cats of the Canadian Football League Monday trad- ed halfback Silas McKinnie to Calgary Stampeders for future considerations. McKinnie, traded to Hamilton from Saskatchewan Roughiid- ers two seasons ago, refused to report to Tiger-Cats and made ar unsuccessful attempt with the National Football League. McKinnie is expected to get a good shot with the Stamped- ers with Jessie Mims out of ac- tion with a high blood pressure condition. SANDRA POST WINS OLD WESTBURY, NY. (AP) Sandra Post of Oakville. Ont, fired a par 72 and won the sixth annual Proette- Member Invitational Monday at Old Westbury Golf and County Club. Miss Post, a six-year vet- eran of the Ladies' Professional Golf Association tour, won the national's women's crown in 1968. FIRST LOSS Lethbridge Kinsmen Warriors edged Taber 6-5 Monday in Southern Alberta Bantam La- crosse League action. It marked the first loss of the season for Taiber. Trapslioot filial set The City of Lethbridge trap- shooting eliminations for the Southern Alberta Summer Games, v.iU be held Wednes- day evening at seven o'clock at the Lethbridge Fish and Game Range. There will be five categories including the open, for classi- fied shooters In the open there is Class A for scores of 95-100; Class E 88-94 and Class C 87 and under. All shooters 18-59 inclushe will shoot in the above open class The age for the above must be as of Jan 1. 1973. Other classes include sen- iors for men and women 60 years of age and junior for boys and girls 17 and under, sub-junior class for boys and girls 14 and under as well as a women's class for scores 80 and under. It is open to all ages Cey and Ferguson and Buck- ner and others who are only beginning to dent the bead- lines. They are fighting the Giants for top spot in the Na- tional League West. Alston sits and works his quiet wonders. He has man- aged four World Champions and six pennant winners. In between he has also master- minded two seventh-place fin- ishes and one eighth-place He now is third on the all- time list for having manag- ed one team most consecutive years. Only Connie Mack (50 years) and John McGraw (31) are ahead of him; but they had a small edge: they owned their ball clubs. Alston is at the mercy of Walter O'Malley. chairman of the board of the Dodgers. Every year Alston gets a one-year contract, just one year. In a profession that is notorious for its insecurity, in which managers rarely last more than three seasons with one club, signir; a one year contract is funereal thing to do Alston says now that none of this bothered him too ter- rifically "I've always felt that if they don't want me, then I don't want to be here." Although there have been mentiqns in news reports that he might retire, he gives no hint of this. He says that managing keeps him young, at 61. An acquaintance walked by in the dugout. "The Seam gets younger but the manager gets the man said to Alston, lamely being light. "Not said Alston. He said later that he en- joys working with young ball- players and that he'd just as soon everybody left him alone so he could do that. The young ballplayers he has now, he acknowledges, "excited" a lot of people this spring. "But actually when you look at it, we just had one very good he said, "who expected Lopes to hit .350, Crawford to be bat- ting .400, Cey to be way over .300, Ferguson to lead the league in RBIs? "We always expect our pitching to be good, and our defense has been better than we thought. now he looks at you with light blue, straight ungalvanized eyes, "we'll see. Too early to tell." He is a large, powerful looking man, in a peaceable, small-town manner. But he can get excitable. His most famous eruption was when he saw roommates Sandy Kou- fax and Larry Sherry com- ing in after curfew, rush to their room and slam their door. Alston hammered the door open with his fists He also enjoys a gag. Last winter he bought a motor bike and gave Dodger coach Tom LaSorda a ride on k when the latter visited Alston in Darr- town. "Tom held on behind me and I drove through the little old tractor back roads said Alston. "1 got up to 40, then SO, and I started pouring the coal on. Tom was holding tighter and tighter. All of a sudden I pretended I got dirt in my eyes, I brushed one hand over my Alston had his bead thrown back and was laughing, "and Tom hol- lered, 'Skip, Skip, will we make Alston, though, was in con- trol. Perhaps that is his man- agerial secret, too. He says that all managers push about the same buttons. "Not much difference between one and the other in said Alston. "You manage with the material you have. You have sluggers, you go for the big inning. If you have hit- and-run men, you play for one run. Otherwise, it's hand- ling men and getting the best out of them. Recently, Casey Stengel, one of only three men to win more world than Alson and once a regu- lar World Series adversary of Alston's, was asked about Al- ston. Stengel gave a typically cogent explanation of Alston's merits, but one must listen closely: "You know he has a smart owner because he keeps the seats dean. If you wear clean dress it'll stay clean when you sit down. He runs a public park and he's not going to be arrested for being neat about it. "And you know he's kept Alston ever since he got him "So that's number two on how you know how smart tbe owner is Race results Faces o f Alston Walter Alsfon has managed the Dodgers, Brooklyn and los Angeles, for without showing too many signs of wear a id tear.
