NEW YORK (R) - Southern California's 0. J. Simpson,
the Heisman Trophy winner who reportedly wants $600,000
to sign, was the No. 1 pick by the Buffalo Bills yesterday in
the combined pro football draft.
Before the .draft is completed today, 442 college players
will have been selected by the 26 teams of the National Foot-
ball League and American Football League in 17 rounds.
Buffalo, the AFL cellar team whose 1-12-1 record was
the worst in the combined standings, nudged out Atlanta and
Philadelphia for the first draft which is based on the in-
verse order of the clubs' 1968
won-lost percentages.
Atlanta of the NFL took George
Kunz, the 6-foot-5, 240-pound of-
pdfensive tackle from Notre Dame,
as No. 2 in the first round and
Pittsburgh of the NFL selected
Joe Greene, a 6-foot-4, 274-pound
defensive tackle from North
Texas State, as No. 4 in the, first
Leroy Keyes, Purdue's running
back - flanker - defensive back,
who was runnerup to Simpson in
the Heisman voting, was the No.
3 selection in the opening round.
He went to the Philadelphia Eag-
les of the NFL.
The selection of Marty Domres,
Columbia's 6-foot-4 quarterback,
by San Diego of the AFL, using
Denver's first-round pick from a
trade, and the drafting of Calvin
Hill, Yale fullback, by the Dallas
Cowboys of the NFL were major
surprises in the first round. Ivy
League players seldom find fav-

round pick from the league was
believed to have been Chuck Bed-

Ron Johnson, Michigan's record
breaking halfback, was picked by
the Cleveland Browns of the Na-
tional Football League in the first
round of the pro football draft in
New York yesterday.
Johnson, greatest Wolverine
back since Tom Harmon, was en-
thusiastic about being chosen by
the Browns, "I'm very thrilled. I'll
be in the same area and the
Browns have a fine organization."
Johnson broke virtually every
rushing and scoring record at
Michigan. The hard driving half-
back rushed for 1391 yards and
scored 116 points, both Wolverine
season records. His 2,440 yards
career rushing also set a team
But his greatest day, the great-
est performance by any back in
modern collegiate history, came
against Wisconsin* on November
16, 1968. In the rain Johnson ran
for 347 yards, an NCAA all-time
single game rushing record and

scored five touchdowns, a modern
Big Ten mark.
Virtually all of Johnson's yard-
age, though, was gained in his
junior and senior years. A product
of Detroit's Northwestern High
School and an all-city selection as
a prep, Johnson saw little action
in his sophomore year at Michi-
gan as he played behind Jim Det-
wiler and Carl Ward.
Johnson fully intends to play
pro football, though his duties will
be different on the Cleveland ball
"I'll be a fullback," said John-
son. "I'll be carrying theball less
and blocking more."
With the expected retirement of
present Cleveland fullback Ernie
Green, Johnson feels, "I'll have a
good chance to play in my first
Tom Stincic, Wolverine line-
backer and the team's second

round early last night.

PEORIA, Ill. RP-Led by Rich
Roberson and Jim Ard, Cincinnati
smashed Bradley 82-62 last night
in a Missouri Valley Conference
basketball game which finished up
with a fist fight.
Cincinnati, advancing its con-
ference record to 4-3 and overall'
mark to 12-4, held a 39-27 half-
time lead after moving in front
twice by .26 points.
L. C. Bowen and Steve Kuber-
ski helped Bradley stage a come- ,
'back in the second half and after
the Braves had pulled within six
points at 56-60, Ard hit three
quick rebound baskets to give Cin-
cinnati a 62-50 edge.j
Roberson led all scorers with
27 points. and Ard hit for 21 while
*Bradley, suffering its fifth con-
ference loss in seven games, was
topped by Bowen with 17 and
Kuberski with 16. Kuberski, how-
ever, fouled out with 4:10 to play.
With a little more than a min-
ute to play, Cincinnati's Rollie
Wynn and Bradley's Dave Lund-
1strom got into a fight with both
benches coming onto the floor.
Wynn decked Lundstrom and af-I
ter both players were handed tech-

nical fouls, their coaches yanked
them from the game.

South Carolina Coach Frank Mc-
Guire, protesting two technical
fouls in the closing minutes, re-
fused to leave the court last night
and officials ordered the Game-
cocks' basketball game with the
Florida State Seminoles forfeited.
The Seminoles were leading 87-
76 with one minute, 57 seconds
left in the contest when referees
Reggie Copeland and Bobby Brock
ended the. game.
Copeland and Brock had warned
the Gamecock coach to get off the
floor. He refused, and they backed
up the threat, putting South Car-
olina's third loss in 13 starts on
the books.
South Carolina is ranked 19 in
the nation in the AP poll.
