CLEARWATER-Richie Allen, the Philadelphia Phillies'
star third baseman still recovering from a severely cut hand
suffered last season, unexpectedly left training camp, the club
No reason was given for Allen's sudden departure. He had
not participated in workouts Thursday:
Allen severly cut his right hand last season when he ac-
cidentally pushed it through an auto headlight near his Phila-
delphia home. Despite nerve damage, the big, slugging infielder,
apparently was making progress and getting ready for this sea-
There was some talk the 25-year-old Allen might be shifted
to the outfield if his fielding was bothering him. He could not
be reached for comment immediately.

ST. PETERSBURG-Tom Seaver of the New York Mets, the
National League's Rookie-of-the-Year in 1967, narrowly escaped
serious injury yesterday when he was hit on the head with a line
The young right-hander was walking toward the outfield
during practice when coach Eddie Yost hitting grounders to in-
fielders accidentally slammed a line drive that caught Seaver
on the back of his head.
Seaver was taken to a hospital where x-rays were negative.
He said he would be ready to pitch Saturday when the Mets
face St. Louis in their opening exhibition game.
PARIS (P) - A letter from French Olympic ski cham-
pion Jean-Claude Killy, swearing he was not paid by a maga-
zine for exclusive photos, has been forwarded to the Inter-
national Ski Federation as evidence that Killy had not
violated his amateur standing.
At stake are the three gold medals Killy won in the
winter Olympics at Grenoble last month and his continued
participation in amateur ski meets counting for the World Cup.

CHICAGO - The Big Ten once
again has moved to curtail the
telecasting of sellout football
At a meeting of faculty repre-
sentatives and athletic directors,
A the Big Ten moved to add fur-
thei television restrictions which
are allowed under the code of the
National Collegiate Athletic As-
Under the NCAA .rules, an in-
stitution is permitted to telecast
a sellout game if there is no
conflict of other games in the
area and if the game involved is
outside of a 400-mile, radius.
The Big Ten is aiming to dis-
courage all telecasts except, of
course, the NCAA's game of the
day at Purdue's brand new arena.
For the Wolverines, it could be
the stepping off point for a suc-
cessful run at next year's Big Ten
It would cap the Wolverines'
.current three - game winning
streak, a streak which has in-
Northwesternrand previous title-
The game also means the end
of senior captain Jim Pitts' col-
lege career. Pitts is the lone sur-
viving teammate of Cazzie Rus-
sell, and his departure means the
end of one era and the beginning
of another. He has been Michi-
gans steadiest player this season,
averaging 19.2 points per confer-
ence game while pulling down
7.5 rebounds- per contest.
The stakes are high for both
teams, and Iowa coach Ralph
Miller knows it. "If we're mental-
ly down tomorrow, we'll lose,"
he predicted last night. "This
Michigan team isn't going to
throw in the sponge for any-
body," he went on.
The Hawkeyes are on a streak
of their own, a four-game binge,
and'have won seven out of their
last eight. The main cause for
their consistency has been the
addition of Glenn "Stick" Vidno-
vic to the starting line-up.
The spindly 6'5" sophomore for-
ward joined the team exactly
eight games ago and his added
13.8-point scoring punch has in-

"Glenn has been a great help
in that he's given us some more
offense on the front line," Miller
lauded. "We've got a much more
balanced scoring attack with
shooters from both sides of the
court, and he's taken some of the
pressure off Sam Williams."
End for Williams
The ever-present Sam Williams
will also be playing in his last
regularly-scheduled Big Ten game
tonight. Williams is currently sec-
ond to sensational soph Rick
Mount in Big Ten scoring with
a 25.3 average.
Williams' 34 points against
Minnesota Monday night put him
one ahead of Don Nelson's 572-
point Iowa scoring record for a
single season. Also graduating
with Wililams will be Breedlove,
Rich Agnew, a 6'6" forward, Rol-
ly McGrath, 6'1" guard, and
Dave White, 6' guard.
One of Miller's returning play-
ers is starting sophomore guard
Chad Calabria. Calabria is Iowa's
second-leading scorer in the con-
ference at 15.8 points per game. In
the first Michigan-Iowa game this
year at the Events Building, he
victimized the Wolverines with a
flurry of 15-foot jump shots, tal-
lying 23 points in the 99-86 rout.
When asked what his greatest
problem will be today with the
Wolverines, Miller asserted "Just
beating them will be enough of a
"This club (the Wolverines) has
been very late in jelling. But their
last three games have proved that
they're a strong team now and
they're a lot better than what
Sports Illustrated said about
them," he said.
The current issue of Sports Il-
lustrated calls Michigan "perhaps
one of the two weakest teams in
the league." Miller stated about
the Big Ten, "I have always felt
there never has been a great dif-
ference between the teams in this
league from top to bottom."
Strategywise, Iowa will use their
familiar full-court press, hoping
to force Michigan into the same
sophomoric mistakes they made
last year and the first half of
this year. Miller said that his
teams never concentrate on de-
fending against a high-scorer such
as Rudy Tomjanovich but that he
runs a "five-man defense."
Today's game gives outgoing
senior Jim Pitts a chance to better
his luke-warm showing in Michi-
gan's last encounter with the
Hawkeyes. In that game he hit a
disappointing six for 18 from the
field and 16 points overall.
Pitts will be working against
Sam Williams on offense but will
undertake the unenviable task 01
covering the Detroit Northerr
product on defense.
One factor which is sure to gc
against the Wolverines is the
Hawkeyes' home court advantage.
They haven's lost a Big Ter
game in the Iowa Field House yet
this season, and 12,900 deter-
mined fans have already boughi
it out for this game.
