OXFORD, Miss., (AP)-A federal
district judge yesterday gave All-
America fullback Charlie Flowers
of Mississippi his freedom from a
New York Giants contract and
dealt the National F o o t b a l l
League its second major setback
this week
Judge Claude Clayton said the
contract the broad-shouldered
Ole Miss linebuster signed was
not binding and ruled Flowers
can now play with the Los An-
geles Chargers of the new Ameri-
can Football League,
The decision came in a small
courtroom, not far from the play-
ing field where ace Giants quar-
terback Charley Conerly. earned
his spurs.
Earlier this week in Los An-
geles, a federal judge freed All-
America halfback Billy Cannon
of Louisiana State from a con-
tract with the Los Angeles Rams
and said he could play with the
Houston Oilers in the new pro-
fessional league.
Young And Naive
Clayton described Flowers as 'a
"Young, inexperienced and, yes,
a naice boy, pre-occupied with re-

Grid Tickets
For Season
Summer Sports Editor
Applications for 120,000 season
tickets for Michigan's fall home
football schedule were mailed out
earlier this month, Athletic Di-
rector Fritz Crisler announced.
The mailing was directed to
Wolverine alumni and to pur-
chasers of season tickets last year
in the seven states covering the
Big Ten area. Season tickets are
priced at $27 for the six nome
Host Oregon
Orders were accepted starting
on June 15 and ticket priority will
be observed on all orders received
by August 10, Crisler said.
The Wolverines will open the
season with a home contest
against the University of Oregon
on Sept. 24. The traditional game
with Michigan State will move to
East Lansing this year on Oct. 1.
Michigan Stadium then will be
the site of three consecutive games
on the 8th, 15th, and 22nd of
October. The Wolverines will face
Duke, Northwestern, and, for .he
Brown Jug, Minnesota.
Travel to Wisconsin
On the 29th of October, the
Michigan grid team will travel to

Wisconsin squad. Then they will
return home on Nov. 5 for the
battle of the Elliot brothers when
we will host Illinois.

face Michigan at Ann Arbor this

12. The final game of the year will

taining his amateur status and
playing in the Sugar Bowl."
Flowers signed the Giants
agreement on Dec. 2, but said he
later told them he wanted to
cancel the agreement and re-
turned the $3,500 the Giants gave
hm as a bonus.
Could Rescind C ontract
Flowers signed with the Charg-
ers the night of Jan. 1, after Ole
Miss had whipped Louisiana State
in the Sugar Bowl game.
The Mississippi fullback had
the right to rescind the contract
until it was approved by the Na-
tional Football iLeague commis-
sioner, Clayton said, because of a
paragraph that stipulated such in
the papers Flowers signed.
Removes Worry
"I feel like a yoke has been
lifted," Flowers said jubilantly
after Clayton's ruling. "It's been
there six months."
"My lawyers deserve 100 per
cent credit because they brought
out every possible issue that could
help me," he added.
"I'm going to California and
play football."
He said he would report for
opening practice at Orange, Calif.,
July 7.
'They'd Kill Me'
The Chargers don't play the
Giants, Flowers said, "and I'm
proud we don't. They'd kill me."
A pre-law student, Flowers said
he learned a "Great deal of law
out of this case, maybe more than
I would want to know. I lost eight
pounds during the trial, dropping
from 212 to 204."
Charger coach Sid Gillman
commented, "We're very happy to
have Charlie Flowers. We feel he
will contribute a great deal to
our football, and we very defin-
itely plan to play him on offense."
Frank Leahy, general manager
of the Chargers, commented from
Chicago, "It is naturally pleasing
to be a part of the American
Football League's second major
victory this week."
Giants Still Want Him
Wellington T. Mara, Vice-Pres-
ident.of the Giants, said after the
ruling the Giants still want Flow-
"The first time he ran a play,
he'd be one of us," Mara said.
"He'd be a fine player."
"It's going to be harder to sign
players when someone else is try-
ing to sign them," Mara said. "I
don't think anything in the Can-
non and Flowers cases will affect
the validity of contracts in the
National Football League."
Offer No Cut Contract
The pact the Giants offered
gave Flowers the $,500 bonus and
a two-year, no cut contract at
$11,000 yearly.
President Barron Hilton of the
Chargers, who testified earlier in
the trial, said the Chargers gave
Flowers a $10,000 bonus and an
annual salary of $17,500 with the
same no-cut provisions for two
Attorneys for the Giants said
they would study Clayton's de-
cision before deciding whether to
appeal to the U. S. Fifth Circuit
Court of Appeals in New Orleans.
