The NPLA has just passed its third birthday. After three days,
the National Professional Lacrosse Association has just overcome
its perfidious' amateur competitors and taken control of the sport.
In other words, it has just gone into the black, forestalling what
had been widespread predictions of bankruptcy.
Well, the truth (?) is, somebody bought a ticket.
That gives the league $2.50 in profit so far. A reliable source
says this will last at least until one or more of the owners invests
in some of the minor essentials, like player contracts, court rentals,
The current profit is indeed a good omen for the league, whose
Eastern Division will include four Canadian cities and Detroit.
The game the association will play, by the way, is box lacrosse,
Indoors. This is not field lacrosse, which made the state of Maryland
famous with its Navy-Johns Hopkins duels. Nor is it anything like
squash or- squash racquets. Or jai alai.
As soon as the game is invented, in fact, The Daily will
publish, a complete description of it as a service to our readers.
Actually, that's not altogether true. The reason we can all be
sure that the sport does exist is that the Canadian National Junior
champions will comprise the nucleus of one of the Canadian teams.
No - the problem is, Americans are just a little bit unin-
formed about the sport. The nut who bought the ticket will now
have to figure out not only what day and what year he bought it
for, (assuming the league does get off the ground), but what
season of the year as well.
It seems kind of funny, but the capitalists invading this unknown
sport seem strangely honesf and forthright - though foolish -
compared to the devious creatures surrounding amateur "ideals."
Skip around things like sex tests, the NCAA-AAU feud, the open
tennis controversy, football recruiting violations, and Negro boycotts
in sports to force people to give them "equality". Let the whole
thing be summed up by Yuri Machin, Soviet sports head, who on
the eve of the Winter Olympic games came out with the following
n support of the ideals of sports without ulterior motives:
"The Soviet sportsmen are profoundly disgusted by Ameri-
can aggression in Vietnam. It is inhuman that the world's youth
should die on battlefields instead of competing pacifically in
