Playoff

To Early Surge for League Pennant

NEW YORK (A')- The Super
Bowl football game was awarded
to Miami yesterday and will be
played in the 70,000 seat Orange
Bowl on Jan. 14 between the 1967
champions of the National and
American Leagues.
The National League's Playoff
Bowl also will be played in the
Orange Bowl with the date Jan. 7.
The first Super Bowl game, in
which Green Bay's National League
champions crushed Kansas City
of the American League, was play-
ed last January in the Los Angeles
Coliseum with only about two-
thirds of the huge arena's seat
filled.
Return Resolution
In making the announcefient,
Commissioner Pete Rozelle said
'Los Angeles officials gave the
league a resolution urging the re-
turn of the Super Bowl to that
city for the second year, but
Rozelle said:
"We discussed it and decided it
might be helpful to move it around
a little. Also, it's good that it will
be in an AFL city."
Miami is the home of the one-
year-old AFL Dolphins. Los An-
geles is the home of the NFL
Rams.
Under the terms of an agree-
ment between the networks that
televise regular season games in
the two leagues, the coming Super
Bowl will be carried exclusively by
the Columbia Broadcasting Sys-
tem. The fee will be $2.5 million
or $500 thousand more than the
rights last January when CBS
and the National Broadcasting
Company shared the telecast.
NBC is to have the rights after
the 1968 season and CBS after the
1969 season. Then contracts will
be negotiated in 1970 when the
two leagues are supposed to com-
plete their merger. NFL games are
carried on CBS, AFL on NBC.
No Pool Decision
Rozelle said no decision had
been made on the player pool for
,the second Super Bowl. In the
Los Angeles game, each member
of the winning Packers received
a guaranteed $15,000 and each of
the losing Chiefs $7,500. Top tick-
et in Los Angeles was $12. No
scale has been adopted for Miami.
Asked if the scheduling of two
pro games in the Orange Bowl on
successive Sundays might not hurt
the ,gate, Rozelle said he thought
there would be little or no effect
on the Playoff Bowl.
"We are naming the site of the
game so much earlier than we did
laset year that it is possible all
tickets for the world championship
game might be sold out by Fall,"
said Rozelle.
Rozelle revealed that Dave Lup-
ton, coordinator of a proposed
Stars and Stripes All-Star foot-
bal game to have been played at
Frankfurt, West Germany, Sun-
day, June 25, had notified the
game had been canceled because
of problems over travel arrange-
ments..
Lupton, a New York business
man, issued a statement noting
the cancelation for this year but
said the game was rescheduled for
1968. He said the participating
college coaches involved suggested
the action because the Department
of Defense had been unable to'
guarantee air transportation for
the 52 players.
The Frankfurt game, a contest
between two teams of college all-
stars, would have been the third
game of that type before the pro-
season. The All-America game at
Atlanta is to be played July 8 and
the College All-Star game at Chi-
cago between the collegians and
the Green Bay Packers is set for
Aug. 4.

Hawks Sue ABA for Hudson

MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. (A)-The
Minnesota Muskies and the new
American Basketball Association

Kaline played that way in a 5-2

Yastremski in the fourth inning.

have been a home'.
"Al gets mad when something

However, Mikan said, "We will
be well represented if served with
a summons or complaint. We will
put in a answer."
Mikan, in answer to whether the
ABA faces a lengthy series of sim-
ilar suits for every NBA player
they sing, said, "Well,I hope not.
But if that's the way it's going to
be, that's the way it's going to be."
Neither Mikan nor Muskies gen-
eral manager A. E. Holmon were
surprised by the Hawks suit
threat.
Holman said he was not wdrried
about the suit and "I'm glad to
hear they think I got a $3 million
piece of property."
The Muskies chief noted that
Hudson's contract with the new
ABA franchise doesn't go into ef-
fect until Oct. 2, two days after
his contract with the Hawks ex-
pires.

OSU Takes NCAA Opener

Arrest Allen
On aana
LOS ANGELES (A)-Lucious Al-
len, star guard on UCLA's national
championship basketball team,
will be arraigned today in Muni-
cipal Court on charges of posses-
sing marijuana.
A felony complaint against the
21-year-old was issued Wednesday
by theLos Angeles County District
Attorney's office.
Allen, who was arrested Tues-
day, was released on $1,100 bail.-
Police narcotics officers said
they found three marijuana cig-
arettes in a plastic bag in an,
automobile parked in front of Al-
len's home. They said they also
found about four grams of the
drug in a pocket of a coat draped
on the rear seat of the car.
Officers said they made a rou-
tine investigation of the vehicle
when they noticed it had no li-
cense plates.
A registration slip bearing Al-
len's name was found in the jacket,
police said.
Investigators said Allen told
them he bought the car two weeks
ago and that it had not been out
of his possession since.
Allen told newsmen: "I have
never used marijuana. I- was out
with a friend Monday night, and
I think he possibly may have left
the marijuana in my car."

of the opening-day's action of the
double-elimination tourney.
First baseman Steve McLaugh-
lin came up with Ohio State down
2-1 and tripled Bruce Heine and
Pete Krull home.
Ohio State's star shortstop,
Robert (Bo) Rein, was on the
sidelines after being ruled inelig-
ible for selling football tickets.
"I consider the case closed and
I'm not about to conduct any
witchhunt," said Athletic Director
Richard C. Larkins. He ruled Rein
ineligible Tuesday night.
A senior from Niles, Ohio, and
a star halfback in football, Rein
was Ohio's leading hitter with a
.358 batting average.
Ohio State, the defending NCAA
baseball king, has won three
straight Big Ten championships.
At the team's appreciation ban-
quet Monday night, Rein was
named co-captain. In a brief
speech, he thanked OSU ticket di-
rector George Staten, assistant di-
rector Bob Reis and other uni-
versity officials for helping him
get extra tickets during the foot-
ball season.
Larkins decilned to discuss how
the case had come to light but
said he had the facts on his desk
several days ago.
The conference prohibits a
student-athlete who is on a
grant-in-aid from selling tickets
unless the athlete reports the
amount received so it can be sub-
tracted from the grant.
