"This is a surprising attitude toward amateur sport and some- thing which will not do amateur sport any he said in a statement.

"The soccer club was even asked by Kimball how much Gary Koch Leads Open Qualifiers By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Gary Koch, an 18-year-old Florida high school senior, led Monday's first day of qualifying for the United States Open gofi championships -with a 36-hold total of under par for the DeSota Lukes course.

Last year tlie soccer team used the area just north of the stadium but there was a lack of sanitary facilities for spec- tators. "We only had two toilets available last year and yester- day in the stadium we had Campbell s'aid. "Kimball says he is concern- ed about the ground but we are also concerned and have no intention of tearing it up." Kimball, in an interview, said the playing field was in "ter- rible condition and we are con- cerned it will be permanently damaged." "But we feel the football players are the ones who dam- age the Campbell said, adding: "they play in the rain and use metal cleats while soc- cer players wear rubber cleats and will not play when the field is wet." John Janzen, city parks and recreation superintendent, said the city has no plans to re- voke the soccer club's newly- acquired lease. "We have to take the attitude that the facilities1 must be he said in an interview. "If yesterday's game is any indication, there was no harm to the field at Janzen said, adding tHat the city is watching the field condition closely. "The field came through in good shape." Campbell said tlie football club refused tlie soccer club per- mission to use the stadium's public address system Sunday after [lie soccer club had of- ferred to pay an operator. "This is certainly niggardly and indicates the football club's attitude toward amateur sport." Campbell said the soccer club needs the stadium to "pre- sent soccer in the best way to the growing number of fans." "I think we can ensure the field, won't be Schrei- der said. "But we commit ourselves as to whether it will be soggy."

Kozelle Testifies NEW YORK (AP) Commis- sioner Pete Hozelle described the United States pro football's player-optUm contract to a fed- eral court hearing Curt Flood's anti-trust baseball suit today End said the plan had worked "effectively." Asked by Flood's lawyer, Jay Topkis, if the football plan aJso had the National Football League com- missioner replied: "On occa- sions." Rozelle was subpoenaed to ap- pear before tlie court on the fourth day of the suit brought by the former St. Louis Cardi- nal outfielder who refused to re- port to Philadelphia Phillies after a trade last year. Flood contends that baseball's reserve clause, which binds a player to one team until he is traded, sold or released, is a form of peonage. He insists baseball is operating m defiance of U.S. anti-trust laws. Rozelle said that an NFL player may sever his connection with his club by electing to play out his option. In this case, upon termination of his contract, he may play an- other year without a formal contract or sit out the season. After this one-year period, he then may negotiate with any other team as a free agent. Under National Football League rules, however, when a player shifts to another club under this provision, the club losing the player must be com- pensated. If the old and new club cannot agree on the compensation terms, the matter is referred to the commissioner, who makes an arbitrary decision.

New York Fans Are Not Spoiled NEW YORK (AP) Sue- cess has not spoiled New York Mets' fans. Expected to become blase following their team's miracle run to the world championship last year, New York fans are as loyal now as they were when the Mets were base- ball's mc-st lovable losers. Banners still wave all over Shea Stadium and the enthusi- asm wliich greeted the Mets almost from the beginning of their nine years in the Na- taval I-cague hasn't dimin- ished a bit About the only thing that I has changed has been the Mets' role. They are no longer the underdogs. As champs they no longer evoke the sym- pathy they did when every game seemed to be a test to see how much torture their fans could endure. Behind third base, commer- cial artist Karl Ehrhardt of Glen Oaks. N.Y., sHll flashes his appropriate signs. CALLS CATCH ROUTINE Early in the season, Ron Swohcda made a tumbling catcli in right field reminis- cent cf the spectacular grab he turned in during Uie fourth game of last year's World Series against Baltimore. The catch brought down the house but Ehrhardt held up a sign that said simply: Rou- tine. The fans remain fickle too. Swobcda struck out three straight times in the first game of Sunday's double- header against the Cubs. When he came to bat for the first time in the nightcap, he heard plenty of boos. A swing and miss increased the vol- ume. On the next pitch, Swo- boda doubled and he was Shea's No. 1 hero least for that moment. The Mels continue to be one of baseball's best draws on the road ami at home. A somewhat mediocre they are under .500 seven weeks into the season has not dimmed the enthusiasm of the fans. They lost three out of four to the Cubs last weekend but the set was a financial suc- cess. Sunday's doubleheader, played on a dreary, cold day under a constant threat cf rain, attracted fans- high in the National League this year.
