"This club lias a lot of pride and remember, we've go! five games left with Uic Pirates. The way we're g o i n g h o Torre is the league's leading hitter with an average of .308 For the Cards, who have won nine of their last 12 games.

N.Y. (AP) "II looks as if they want a have to be naive not lo notice Lamar Hunt, mil- lionaire bankroller of the pro ter.nis lour, says of Ihe game's newest impasse. "It's a strange war. They want, lo hurt us apparenlly. We don'L want lo hurl anybody. Our hope is lo build a strong profes- sional arm tr (he game. "We think we can do it lo Ihe benefit of tennis, its sponsors and its fans." The war involves Hunt's World Championship Tennis, Inc., which lias 32 leading pro- fessionals under contract, and the International Lawn Tennis Federation, which has barred Hunt's pros in all ILTF tourna- ments, slarting in 1972.

The article says Walsli made the admission Aug. 29 during [he first day of the Johnson grievance which is being heard by a three-man arbitration com- mittee. Chiefs and other spoils teams, said. "For one thing, we have sug- gested that the "Big Three" For- est Hills and Roland included in the point system for our p I a y e r s. These players would be given reasonable ex- penses lo play and would com- pete for the prize money. "But, no, the ILTF says these tournaments are sacrosanct. They must be run on principles used iii the pail. Our feeling is that everything must be suscep- tible lo change if it is to grow." Defending champion Ken Ho- sewall, Rod Laver, Tony Roche and several other top pros de- clined lo play in Ihe U.S. Open at Forest Hills this year.
