SEATTLE (-- A federal bankruptcy referee cleared the
way last night for the sale of the Seattle Pilots of the Amer-
ican League to a Milwaukee group.
Th ruling by Sidney C. Volinn cleared the way for the
sale this morning and the awarding of a franchise so the
Milwaukee Brewers can open the season next Tuesday.
Volinn told a packed courtroom, "I am constrained to
find and conclude" that Pacific Northwest Sports Inc. accept
a $10.8 million offer of the Milwaukee Brewers Baseball Club
Inc.
Volinn appointed a receiver and said proceeds of thej
sale were to be dispersed "only on the order of this court."j
The referee said it was clear that the Pilots could nbt

Verdict due
on McLain
NEW YORK (A')-Baseball Com-
missioner Bowie Kuhn said last'
night he has reached a decision
in the case of suspended Detroit
Tiger pitcher Denny McLain and
will announce it today.
A spokesman for the commis-
sioner's office said Kuhn would
hold a news conference in the
Americana Hotel at noon EST
today tp announce his decision.
A Detroit newspaper reported
last week that McLain would be
given a year's suspension for in-
volvement in bookmaking activ-
ities dating back to 1967.
The commissioner's office, how-
ever, described that report as "just
a wild guess."
McLain was suspended indefi-
nitely by Kuhn last month after
an investigation into the pitcher's
gambling activities by the com-
missioner's office.1
Kuhn said the indefinite sus-1
pension was "based substantially
on certain admissions made can-t
didly to me by Mr. McLain and
not on allegations in a recent
magazine article, many of which1
I believe will prove to be un-
founded.",

New York, which had beaten
Baltimores 12 times in 13 starts
before losing the third game of
the series, rallied from a 73-52
deficit to pull within 79 73 early!
in the fourth quarter.
The Bullets again pulled away
at 87-,73 as Monroe made baskets
under the close guarding of Mike
Rierdan and Walt Frazier, but the
Knicks again rallied to pull with-1

next three years.
"For whatever reason, the deb-
tor can't meet his debts. It is
without question that he is unable
to do so," Volinn said.
He said the claim of Golden
West Broadcasters Inc., which
owns Pilot broadcast rights, and
Sportservice Corp., the Seattle
concessionaire, would be handledl
in the same manner as the Bank
of California, which has a claim
against all the club's assets.
Wallace Aiken, attorney for
Pacific Northwest Sports, asked
that a bond of $2 million be or-I
dered in the event of a petition
for review of Volinn's decision.t
The judgment was rendered in
a night session of a hearing that
started last week. Pilot owners
went to bankruptcy court to relief
when legal moves by Seattle and
the state of Washington stalled
the proposed move.
Sun-tanned a

By MORT NOVECK
The Michigan football team
held a scrimmage yesterday after-
noon and while it wasn't bad
enough to send the c o a c h e s
into the depths of dispair, it
wasn't good enough to send them
into euphoric ecstacy either.
According to head coach Bo
Schembechler, "The defense look-
ed good but the offense still isn't
looking sharp." When asked why'
the offense wasn't progressing as
rapidly as the defense he elabor-
ated, "It's easier to get the defense
together quicker. The offense is,
more mechanical and you have to
work on the execution of the plays
where on defense you can playC
more on instinct."
When asked how good he ex-
lfers return

pected the offense to get during
the spring drills Schembechler
seemed optimistic saying, "There's1
no reason why they can't get'
sharp."
The problem of getting the of-
fense to jell. howeve, is further
complicated by the need to workj
new players into the lineup. Much'
of yesterday's session was devoted
to letting reserve quarterbacks
Dennis Connell and Jack McBride
run the second string against the
first squad in the quest for a back-
up to Don Moorhead.
Injuries are also proving to be
a problem in spring practice. Of-E
fensive tackle Jack Harpring
pinched a nerve in yesterday's ses-
sion and while the injury is not
serious, it ispainful. Sophomore
Randy Logan, who might have
been a fullback according to
Schembechler, broke his hand in
an earlier session and while he
can still work out he is hampered
by the injury.

Last week, those few golfers
whose drives are longer and
straighter than the average duf-
fers' soaked up some beautiful
Miami sun by competing in the
Miami Invitational golf tourna-
ment. They not only relished the
trip; they performed quite well.
Out of 85 teams competing, the
Wolverines finished a strong sixth
behind perennial golf powers in-
cluding Florida, Florida State and
Miami.
In pre-tournament play, the
Wolverines captured three dual-
meet victories over Miami, Bald-
win-Wallace and the University
of the South.
Michigan coach Bill Newcomb
was very pleased with the Wolver-
ines' play but exposed that "they
weren't as sharp in the actual big
tournament." Newcomb a d d e d
that dual match play is usually
head-to-head match play, and that
style doesn't prepare the players
for Big Ten stroke competition.
Newcomb exuded optimism when
he stated that the "scores were
comparable to last year's despite
the fact that we lost two seniors."
Led by senior captain Randy
Erskine, the Michigan team boasts

a strong nucleus including juniors
Keith Mohan and John Roska,
and senior Rocky Pozza.j
The remainder of the squad is
not set even though sophomoresj
Gary Balliet and Pete Clark did
well down south. Also with a crack
at the fifth and sixth positions
are senior Bill Lyle. sophomores
Dan Hunter and Chuck Burn-1
ham, and freshman Reese Lapuchi.
The tournament was won by
Florida as Stacy Russell led the
Gators and the remainder of the
field with 289. Teammate Andy
North was runner-up with 290.
Looking at the Big Ten race
Coach Newcomb notes that In-
diana, on paper, has the best
talent. With Wayne McDonald, a
1969 All-America selection, and
1969 Big Ten Champion Don Pad-
gett returning, the Hoosiers are
definately the team to beat.
Newcomb sees Purdue breathing
down Indiana's back with Mich-
igan in there right behind theI
Boilermakers.
The squad's next competition is
set for April 12 when the Wolver-
ines take part in the Kepler In-
vitational at Columbus. The Kep-
ler is a one-day event which com-
bines golfing skills with stamina
in the grueling 36-hole test.

at both tailback and fullback and
Schembechler says nothing defi'-
nite can be decided until the fall.
