i 'Greatest'


In Exhibition
At Cobo Hall
Special To The Daily
DETROIT - Although notably
slower and overweight, Muham-
mad Ali was still good enough to
be "the greatest," at least against
the likes of Orville Qualls and Al-
vin "Blue" Lewis in two three
round exhibitions last night at
Cobo Hall.
Burdened with 16 ounce gloves
and headgear (regulation require-
ments for all exhibitions), Ali con-
tinually toyed with the 235 pound
Qualls, entertaining the crowd
with such antics as his "Ali Shuf-
fle" and the "double clutch,''
which was displaced publicly for
the first time.
(The double clutch is in fact,
only the "Ali Shuffle" done twice
in a row at double speed.)
In the second match, the champ
ran into more difficulty. Lewis, a
crowd pleaser himself, attempted
to begin the fight before the bell
and without a referee. His trade-
marks were a soft left jab, a to-
tally inaccurate right and a tend-
ency to whistle shrilly between
rounds while flailing both arms
in the air, signifiying imminent'
Forthe first two rounds of the
Lewis-Ali exhibition, the champ
allowed his opponent to attack
and taunt him at will, never rais-
ing his guard, and once even al-
lowing himself to be cornered and
treated as a punching bag, offer-
ing no resistance whatsoever.'
In the third round, however, Ali
changed tactics and for the only
time in either exhibition, demon-
strated real boxing prowess. He
battered "Blue" with a continuous
barrage of left uppercuts and right'
Neither exhibition bvas scored,
although Ali easily controlled both.
Before the third round, fight
officials announced there would
be a fourth round to the Lewis-
Clay exhibition, but Clay laid in-
to Lewis with several quick com-
binations to the head and body,
and as the bell sounded, Lewis
yelled at the referee, "That's all."

The Sham Speaks...

Last Saturday, as a part of UAC's Summer Weekend, Domingo
Samudio, better known as Sam the Sham, was in town with his
musical group, the Pharoahs. Daily reporter Thomas R. Copi took the
opportunity to speak with Sam the Sham, who numbers among his hit
tunes such titles as "Wooly Bully" and "Li'l Red Riding Hood." The
bulk of the interview follows.
COPI: Sam, what type of audience do you prefer playing for?
From what type of audience do you get the best response?
StheS: The type of response we get depends on the area, but we
can always get a response from the college crowd, because ours is a
"hip" act-there are many things involved where if you don't know
what's happening, you're going to get left out. But we enjoy doing
college dates the most.
COPI: Your performance here is known as a "one-night
stand"-do you do much of this type of work?
StheS: We find ourselves either playing or travelling every
day. We're starting out on a tour, and we'll be playing 35 consecutive
one-nighters. This involves a lot of work, moving every day and all,
.but I don't think I'd dig it any other way. Sometimes we do other
things-we played a sit-down engagement in Manila for two weeks-
that was really royal. It gave us a chance to polish up our new rou-
tines and like that.

under clear skies in high altitude
'Defending Champion Charlie
Greene of Nebraska tied the world
record in the 100-yard dash, clock-
ing 9.1 in a qualifying heat.
Greene"achieved the mark only
minutes after sophomore Lennox
Miller of Southern Californiah ad
equalled the collegiate record of
9.2 in another heat. Greene had
an allowable wind of 3.9 miles an
hour. There was no wind on Mil-
ler's heat.
Among the entrants were four
world record breakers and a dozen
defending champions, some of
whom appeared outclassed in
their bids for repeat titles.
Field events qualifying was first
on the schedule, shortened some-
what by a decision, that no quali-
fying would be necessary in the
hammer throw. Only 14 men were
entered in this, a sharp contrast
to the 53 entries in the half mile.
More than 40 were entered in
the high hurdles, high jump, 220,
,440 and three-mile.

StheS: I used to work in a club in Dallas-sweeping, cleaning off
the pool tables. There's no future in that. I emceed the act that
was at this particular club one night, and I dug it, so I began to
figure out ways to get into it. I became interested in pop music when
I was in school.
COPI: Where did you go to school?
StheS: I ispent two years at Arlington State College. I was an
English major, though you probably couldn't tell it by my grammar.
But I dug English and history. I thought at one time I might like
to be a professor. I decided that if I couldn't make it in the music
field, I wanted to be an entomologist-you know, study bugs.
COPI: Is that your hobby?
StheS: No, but I can recognize certain bugs when I see 'em. It's
really a very interesting field, because there are about 183 million
varieties of the different species of insects in the United States' and
Canada. And that's not even counting Mexico, which has an entirely
different set of bugs.
There are some really wicked bugs in this world. It might sound
ridiculous, but it's very interesting, because insects play an important
part in our agriculture. Take, for instance, the fire ant. It was brought
in from South America on fruit, and this particular insect has prac-
tically destroyed agriculture in the South. And those ants are cap-
able of killing people; in fact there are cases where they've attacked
small deer and children-they've killed children in the South. It's
a very dangerous insect-kind of like the army ant.
COPI: When and where did you pick up the girls that are
now in your act, the Shamettes?
StheS: I picked up the Shamettes about seven months ago in
New York, where they were a 'singing group. I thought they could
add some color to the act . . something besides just males . . . some
more variety. It gives the guys in the audience something to look
forward to. They're very attractive and we're very proud of them.

Daily News Analysis
Recruiting for the South East-
ern Conference (SEC) has brought
the first Negroes in history to
teams at Tennessee, Kentucky and
Vanderbilt this fall.
This "new look," in a conference
of exceptional football talent that
has been scoffed at by sceptical
Big Ten fans for not having Negro
players, has lured three of Mich-
igan's most promising high school
stars this year.
A case in point is fast scoring
Spencer Haywood from Detroit's
Pershing high, who was attracted
to Tennessee, according to their
athletic department "because he
was impressed by the new Tennes-
see basketball arena and by coach
Ray Meers and his assistants."
There is also Albert Davis, a
resident of Tennessee, already
called another Jimmy Brown, who
will be the first Negro on their
grid team.
Policy Shift
The history of this apparently
sudden shift in policy actually
goes back four years, to when the
Kentucky University regents en-
dorsed a resolution that favored
"active recruitment of Negroes."
But to what extent the SEC is
now merely responding to national
criticism for not having Negroes
and is insisting that they now be
"academically qualified" is a ques-
tion which is often hazed. Why for
example, did Detroit's great Spen-
cer Haywood decide on Tennessee
and not Michigan or Michigan
Michigan's coach Dave Strack
would make no comment on Hay-
wood's grades or academic qual-
ifications. He said, however, that
Michigan scouts had looked at him
and decided "He is truly a tre-
mendous player, and one of the
really great prospects to come out
of this state."
"He's definitely in the super star
class," Strack added.
Whether Tennessee would have
gone after him just last year is
questionable. According to one
Kentucky official "If we showed
interest in recruiting a Negro ath-
lete in the past, if word leaked
out, he would receive threatening
leters from people in Alabama and

Academic standards are also a
problem, as many Negroes come
from urban schools which offer
programs which are inferior to
white suburban schools.
One SEC source talked of West-
ern Kentucky's recruitment this
year of a great Negro player: "He
is 7'1", with a couple of B's on
his transcript, quite a few C's,
many D's and I'd hate to tell you
how many F's."'
When this source was asked
how Western Kentucky, (which is
not in the SEC), will keep the boy
eligible, the reply was, "I don't
know, we intend to ask them that
An NCAA regulation requires
athletes to maintain at least a
1.6 scholastic average. At Michi-

gan in the literary college any
student below a 2.0 for more than
one semester can be dismissed for
academic reasons.
The "new look" SEC is obvious-
ly trying to attract a great deal
of Negro talent in a small amount
of time, much as the American
League tried to catch up when
the National league got the jump
on them in signing Negro athletes.
For its belated start, the American
League lost such stars as Jackie
Robinson, Willie Mays and Henry
Whether the SEC, with five
bowl participants last year, will
make it any tougher for the Big
Ten teams in the national stand-
ings in the next few years still
remains to be seen.

Chicago, Detroit Downed by Rivals;
Dodgers Pound Cubs as Pirates Split

By The Associated Press
Tony Conigliaro's two-run homer
with two out in the 11th inning
gave Boston a 2-1 victory over
the Chicago White Sox last night,
but the Sox remained in first as
Detroit lost as well.
Harmon Killebrew's 17th home
run with a man aboard ignited
a four-run Minnesota rally in the
seventh inning which carried the
Twins to a 6-4 victory over De-
Detroit scored twice in the sixth
off Twins reliever Al Worthing-
ton, who replaced starter Dave
Boswell when he developed blist-
ers after striking out nine men in
five innings.
Killebrew was the first man to
face Tiger reliever Fred Gladding
and he erased a 3-2 Detroit lead.
Mickey Stanley tripled to score
a Tiger run in the second, but
the Twins regained the lead with
two in the fifth on a walk, error
and singles by Cesar Tovar and
Ron Carew.
The Twins' Zoilo Versalles col-
lected his 1000th major league hit
with a sixth inning single.
Lefty Jim Brewer ended a three-
year hit famine with the first

extra base blast of his major
league career as the Los Angeles
Dodgers handed the Chicago Cubs
a second straight beating 5-0.
Jenkins, suffering his fourth de-
feat as the Dodgers snapped his
five game winning streak, was
touched for four unearned runs
in the seventh. Wes Parker's third
and Ron Hunt's second homers
climaxed the spree after second
baseman Norm Gigon's error
opened the gates.
John Donaldson opened the
11th inning with a triple and
Reggie Jackson drove him home
with a single, sending the Kansas
City A's to a 6-5 comeback victory
over the Baltimore Orioles.
Dave Duncan reached first when
Luis Aparicio bobbled his ground-
er and Jim Gosger singled for
the fourth marker. Dick Green's
suicide squeeze bunt with one out
scored the tying run.
Baltimore had jumped on Jim
Nash for five runs in six innings,
one on Boog Powell's sixth homer.
Dave Johnson, Andy Etchebarren
and Brooks Robinson each doubled
home runs and Etchebarren's sac-
rifice fly brought in another.
Jim Wynn cracked three solo
home runs behind Mike Cuellar's
eight-hitter and the Houston As-
tros beat San Francisco 6-2, for
their third victory in the four-
game series.

as right-handed Dick Hall, a last-
minute replacement for hospital-
ized Jim Bunning, made his first
starting appearance since 1963
and scattered nine hits.
Rich Allen was the Phils' batting
star. He had a two-runh omer
in the third and a run-scoring
single in the first.
Gene Oliver, a catcher recently
obtained by the Phils from At-
lanta, also homered. Bob Veale
was the losing pitcher, dropping
his record to 7-2.
