Childress, the third player cho sen in the 1985 National Football League collegiate draft, remained unsigned along with Wisconsin cornerback Richard Johnson, also picked in the first round by the Oilers. but both sides were still too far apart. “I don’t see how we can get ev erything worked out before Fri day,” Courrage said. “Ray has got a definite figure in mind that he wants and it’s obvious that the league is trying to hold these fig ures down.” Herzeg said the Oilers have of fered Childress a contract in line with that paid to last year’s No. 1 draft choice, offensive lineman Dean Steinkuhler. Edward Sewell, San Francisco, who represents Johnson, also said he is pessimistic about Johnson being in training camp Friday. Six other Oiler draft choices are unsigned. “We’re a good bit apart right now,” Childress’ agent, Joe Cour rage, said following a telephone session Wednesday with Oilers General Manager Ladd Herzeg. “A problem here that people aren’t understanding is that Ray has a development company that is earning him money right now. He’s certainly not over a barrel with the Oilers as far as his liveli hood is concerned.” Courrage said Herzeg’s latest proposal involved more money, “We felt that we paid a lot to sign Dean Steinkuhler last year,” Herzeg said. “He was (he second player chosen and Ray was the third player chosen this year. We feel that Dean and Ray are about equal and we are willing to com pensate him accordingly.” Steinkuhler signed a four-year contract for a reported $2.6 mil lion last season. “If he (Childress) thinks he can earn more in the contstruction business, then maybe he shouldn’t be looking at pro foot ball,” Herzeg said. Sewell said Johnson was aware that negotiations could be pro tracted. “You have to be talking in or der to sign a contract and we’re not talking,” Sewell said. “I’m File Photo Ray Childress, a defensive end from sent when Houston Oiler rookies re| T exas A&M, probably will be )oi t to training camp today. sure at some point Ladd will want to talk about Richard's contract and until we find that he’s changed his mind about want Richard’s services, we won’t con sider any alternatives."

Gil Brandt, the Cowboys’ per sonnel director, says as far as he’s concerned, Darwin won’t be with the club this season. But Darwin’s agent, Randy Hendricks, has called Brandt’s stance “a power play” that won’t work. Hendricks said Brandt called him Tuesday, suspended negotia tions, and said the Cowboys’ offer of a $55,000 signing bonus for Darwin, a center-guard and fifth- round draft choice, was no longer available. Brandt said the offer would be cut by $2,500 a day for each day Darwin stayed out of camp, Hen dricks said. Darwin and first-round draft choice Kevin Brooks, a defensive Besides the bonus, the Cow boys’ offer to Darwin included salaries of $70,()()(), $85,000 and $100,000 with an option. Historically, a fifth-round draft choice usually is only bor derline to make the cut. As “It’s just a power play. Brandt told me he got our proposal and wouldn’t pay a dime more than he already offered. He said he didn’t see the point in beating 'around the bush and was ending the negotiations with Matt Dar win,” Hendricks said. “Somewhere along the line you have to compromise if you are drafted fifth,” Cowboys Coach T om Landry said. “You have to say, ’Let me make the team, and then the monev will come.’” Matt Darwin “We’re not going to knuckle under. We’re not taking that deal,” the agent said. Brandt said he and Hendricks are so far apart that it’s safe to say Darwin probably won’t play for the Cowboys in 1985. If Darwin doesn’t sign and the Cowboys don’t trade his rights,he could sign with a USFL team for 1986 or put his name back into the 1986 draft. Brandt has said he will not trade the team’s NFL rights to Darwin this season. lineman from Michigan, are the only draft choices still unsigned. Matt Moran, an offensive guard from Stanford, has signed a series of one-year contracts, the club an nounced Tuesday. “As far as I’m concerned, he won’t be here this year. The money they are talking about and what we’re offering, I don’t see how we can make a compromise,” Brandt said. Darwin played every position on the offensive line while at Texas A&M, earning second team All-Southwest Conference honors at the center position in ’83 and ’84. The 6-foot-4, 261 pound lineman was expected to try the guard position with the Cowboys. | WASH IN' jRtagan is ex lessor to bm Stockman by ■th Feden ■airman Jat edlv the lead ■Some con ■iiitsday th Reagan had; inate Miller White Hous< ■en made. ■“No one ■>,” spokesr ■Speakes sa ■ft Donald viewing canc ably make a fofesident by ■The congi irtg on condi Tied, said t spreading t would be nai Stockman Slaney, Budd ready for rematch Associated Press LONDON — America’s Mary Decker Slaney and her new coach, Luiz Oliveira, are playing down the significance of next Saturday’s ea gerly awaited clash with Britain’s Zola Budd. Slaney and Budd race over 3,000 meters at a Grand Prix meet at Lon don’s Crystal Palace stadium for the first time since their collision at the Los Angeles Olympic Games. The now famous clash of legs in the 3,000 at the Los Angeles Col iseum left the medal hopes of both runners in tatters. Slaney lay writh ing in agony on the side of the track, while Budd’s concentration snapped and she finished disappointingly in seventh place amid boos from the pro-American crowd. , The bitter recriminations that fol lowed made a rematch a thrilling prospect. But in the weekly British entertainment magazine, TV Times, published Wednesday, Slaney said: -“I will be happy to run against Zola again but as far as I’m con cerned she is now just another run ner. The best situation is if it’s just another race, if we both just happen to be there. Carl Lewis, about Ed Moses and 4 what happened to Mary.’ Of course it bothers me. I wanted to win but it isn’t a great tragedy. It’s behind me now.” “When people look back at the 1984 Olympics, they will think about Slaney is due to arrive iu London on Thursday and has scheduled a lunchtime press conference the same day at a downtown hotel. Meanwhile, the mass-circulation Daily Mil rot newspaper reported that Slaney and Budd would not meet in London until actually lining up on the track at Crystal Palace and that Budd’s coach, Peter Labus- chagne, had banned all prerace in terviews with his protege. 1981, is resij New York it of Salomon 1 Corrections^ In Tuesday’s Battalion, tk *1 tor of the C Governmer American 1 Kinko’s 2'/a K run was OT ’ Washington neouslv listed as a 2K run.
