"Both semi- finals should be played the same day. For instance, if we had a very long and tough match Saturday the winner would be at a disadvantage Sunday." The women's semifinals to- day present an intriguing lineup, marred only by the default earlier in the week by defending champion and No. 1 seed Billie Jean King because of a cold and heat exhaustion. Margaret Court of Australia, whom many observers rate the world's best woman player, meets Chris Evert, the young star from Fort Lauderdale, Fla., and Evonne Goolagong of Australia takes on unseeded Helga Masthoff of West Ger- many. The ballboy incident late in the Smith-Parun match took on added significance because the 75-minute quarter-final was so one-sided and so routine that it hardly extracted a yell from the centre court crowd of at the West Side Tennis Club. "It was a ballboy toss from left Smith said good na- turedly afterward. "It caught me flush on the right ear. I couldn't hear for several min- utes." Canadians learn big lesson in Belgrade An intelligent approach needed BELGRADE (CP) Irene MacDonald says an intelligent approach might help improve Canadian the ones with exceptional talent. As manager of the Canadian team taking part in the world aquatic championships, her comments are difficult to ignore in view of the 1976 Olympics in Montreal. "We've picked what we call a 'Game Plan 76' team of 14 di- said Miss MacDonald, who won a bronze medal in the 1936 Olympic diving com- only Canadian ever to achieve that feat. "Out of the 14 divers, I think we should take seven girls and about four boys and we should really concentrate on them. But there are kids on 'Game Plan 76' that are never going to make the grade. "And yet there are a couple of kids off it these people should be on that program. We should be concentrating on all these kids.'' "We have to be more in- telligent and more honest with ourselves as diving people as to what kind of training program we're going to have. NOT DONE WELL "I think the 'Game Plan 76' is a good idea, but I don't think it has been set up well. As one of the top coaches in Canada, I was never consulted as to what my ideas were and how it should be handled. "After the world champion- ships, I think we should sit back, look at it, and maybe re- vise it a wee bit because I do think that we have the ability to produce top divers in Canada, we certainly have the facilities and we're getting the support fi- nancially." Miss MacDonald. a 38-year- old Vancouver resident and pro- vincial diving coach for British Columbia, is one of many Cana- dian officials who have been happy with Canada's diving in the world though Canada isn't expected to win a medal.

Two weeks ago, Fred Cox of Minnesota kicked a field goal at the final gun to give the Vikings a 20-17 victory over Miami, snapping a streak of 23 games without a loss. Quarterback Earl Morrall, who played the second half for Miami, summed up how his team felt about losing the pres- sure cooker games: "It's kinda tough to lose by a pah- of field goals right at the last." Miami opponents said that all last season. Former Dolphin Otto Stowe came back to haunt his old teammates, snaring touchdown passes of 26 and six yards in the nationally televised game. Kansas City Chiefs, hampered by an erratic offence which has produced just one victory in five preseason games, will rely on 38-year old quarterback Len Daw son to call the plays tonight against St. Louis Cardinals. "I can't remember when we played so said coach Hank Stram.

Mayor Art Phillips, president of the Pacific National Exhibi- tion, told a board of directors meeting Wednesday that the Canucks have been ordered to provide the lighting and ''if they don't, we'll do it and bill them for it John Rennie. PNE general manager, said the Canucks are required by the terms of their- contract with the PNE to in- stall special flood-lighting in the Coliseum for color telecasts. He said in their first two years in the NHL the Canucks met their lighting commitment by renting the lights but they are required to install lights so the PNE can have use of them. Mr. Rennie said the PNE would make the lights avail- able to the Blazers, as required by their lease. The PNE will receive a share of the Blazers' television revenue. Under the present contract, it does not share the Canucks television revenue.

The announcement, made jointly at London and Detroit news conferences, said the 17 man squad will comprise mainly Canadians from the training camp of Detroit Red wings of the National Hockey League and possibly some Eu- ropean and British players. Although no players have yet been signed, a spokesman said the plan was to train the team in Port Huron, Out., Sept, 10-15 and then arrive here for their first game Oct. 19 against Dutch Internationals. The venture is sponsored by Bruce Norris, president of the Red Wings, who said it was an- Hcipated that to SI tnil- I lion would be spent this year. I The ultimate hope was that the scheme would attract Brit- ish talent to hockey and even- tually turn the Lions into a mainly British team. Canadian servicemen made hockey popu- lar in Britain during and follow- ing the Second World War but of late it has all but dis- appeared from the sports scene. Norris also talked of an even- tual world professional hockey championship bringing together Yankees trade Alou brothers NEW YORK (AP) New York Yankees traded Felipe and Matty Alou, two of three brothers in major league base- ball, to contending teams in the National League's East Division Thursday. Matty, a 34-year-old outfielder and first baseman whose life- time batting average of .309 is sixth highest among active ma- jor leaguers, was sent to St. Louis Cardinals, for whom he played in 1971 and 1972. teams from Europe, North America and Japan. "That is where it's ward a world cup." Norris told the news conference. But John F. (Bunny) Ahearne. president of the Inter- national Ice Hockey Federation suggested that travel problems involving Asian parti- cipation made this goal un- likely.
