The Bears, currently touring Alberta, are from the University of California in Berkeley. Sullivan, who saw his charges grab a 3-0 lead, then trail 5-3 before tying up proceedings, feels his club may be ready for a weekend pair with Red Deer Generals. "The guys were loose tonight." said Sullivan. His reference to the club being loose stems from Wednesday's Alberta Major League game with Calgary Jimmies. Lakers, after a brilliant home opener Tuesday when they belted Calgary Giants 9- 0, went into a shell Wednesday and dropped a 7-2 verdict to the Jimmies. Lakers were up for Friday's game, despite the fact it was an exhibition, and had their chances to win Young righthander Jerry Veres was impressive as he stifled the powerful Bear bats. His only real trouble came in the second inning when he gave up two walks, a single and a grand slam home run to John Hughes. Veres was touched for a single run in the Billie Jean King will be busy now LONDON (AP) Billie Jean King has seven days to emulate Suzanne Lenglen, the French star who glittered over Wimbledon in the early 20's and three times won all three Wimbledon titles: The women's singles and doubles and the mixed doubles. Suzanne Lenglen did it three times between 1920 and 1925, when the international tennis scene was a gentler one. Mrs. King, already five times a sin- gles winner, won the triple crown in 1967 and again last year. She is trying to do it again this she'll have to pack 16 matches into the remaining seven days of the tournament. So far, Mrs. King has.played only once. That was Tuesday, before rain made a shambles of referee Mike Gibson's carefully planned program. After five days, only 16 men and six women were through to the last 32 and the card was running 180 matches behind schedule. Jimmy Connors, 21, seeded third defeated Australian Phil Dent Arthur Ashe was another seed who came through to the third round, together with Manuel Orantes of Spain and Tom Okker of The Netherlands. Ashe. seeded eighth, beat Russia's Teimuraz Kakulia 6-1, Okker. seeded seventh, beat Szabolcs Baranyi of Hungary Orantes, 12th, beat Thomas Koch of Brazil 6-2. 6- 4, 6-2. They joined top-seeded John Newcombe of Australia, second-seeded Hie Nastase of Romania, veteran Ken Rosewall. youngster Bjorn Borg. Stan Smith, Tom Gorman and Jan Kodes among the others in the last 32. The women's singles are in worse shape. Rosemary Casals of San Francisco and Evonne Goolagong of Australia, among the seeds, played and won. Miss Casals had a tough match against Pam Teegaurden of Los Angeles but eventually won on a tie-breaker and Miss Goolagong ran through Ilena Kloss of South Africa 6-2, 6-4. Already through to the third round are the two top seeds- Ms. King and second-ranked Chris Evert.
