OMAHA (IP) - Arizona State
clinched its claim to the 1-966
NCAA title of college baseball
champion Sunday after a shaky
semi-finals, with a 11-2 trouncing
of the Houston Cougars.
The Sun Devils had dropped
their only series game to Houston
on Friday, 3-0. Wildness by the
Cougar pitchers and six Houston
errors were the decisive edge Ari-
zona State needed.
The Sun Devils scored three
runs in the first as the entire
batting order went to the plate.,
Four men were walked by Hous-
ton pitchers in the opening frame.
Tom Burgess went the distance
for State and struck out 15, a
record for a College World Series

The award was a tribute to
Davini's .409 Series hitting and
superb fielding. His uniform is
always the first to get dirty. His
teammates call him "pig pen."
He's so excitable, Coach Bobby

He was so worked up about the

PROVO, Utah (A) - Southern
California is collegiate track and
field king once more, and the
reign may be a long one.
That was obvious after the Tro-
joke of the team -competition in
competition in the 46th annual
NCAA track and field meet at
Brigham Young University Satur-
day night.
As 19,500 watched, Southern
California broke the world 440-
yard relay record with three soph-
omores and a junior, swept the
top two places in the pole vault
with two sophomores, and rolled
up 86 points with surprising ease.
Oregon was a distant second
with 40 points and defending
champion UCLA was third with
Sophomore pole vaulters Bob
Seagren and Paul Wilson put on
an exciting show as both tried to
clear the world record height of
17-8. Seagren has the pending
mark of 17-7, set only a few days
before the meet.
Big Randy Matson of Texas
A&M won the shot and discus
titles for the second straight year,
then said he would give up the
discus next year. "I'm a shot put-
ter," he said.
The other double winner, Gerry
Lindgren of Washington State,
said he was tired after the three
mile run Saturday night. He won
the six-mile Thursday.
Tommie Smith of San Jose
State. who won the 220 in 20.2,
said he was unhappy with the
time.--even though just a shade
off his world record of 20 seconds
Jim Ryun of Kansas,, world
record-holder in the mile, said
the slow pace wiped out the pos-
sibility of a sub-four minute mile.
He sprinted the final lap in 52.5
and won in 4:03.5.
Eight meet records were broken,
one world record shattered and
another tied.

The world record tied- was the
100-yard dash mark of 9.1 seconds
by Charlie Greene of Nebraska in
an elimination heat. He won the
final in 9.2,

HOUSTON (AP) - Mohammad
Ali, singing, joking and preach-
ing as he waited, went on trail
yesterday on charges of refusing
to be inducted into the Armed
Forces. Attorneys settled on an
all-white jury of six men and six
The case had prevented the
start of selection of a jury until
midafternoon after the heavy-
weight champion had spent most
of the day roaming the Federal
Court corridors chatting, joking
and preaching.
Ali finally entered the court-
room at 3:40., EDT after 84 pros-
pective juors remaining from an
original pool of 150 had been as-
sembled before Judge Joe Ing-
Ingraham had introduced the
case as "The U.S. government vs.
Cassius Marcellus Clay Jr." and
read the brief indictment that was
returned 10 days after Ali refused
to accept induction that was re-
turned 10 days after All refused
to accept induction April 28.
The judge then asked if any-
one knew Clay personally. As Ali
stood facing the jury panel, his
New York City attorney, Hayden
Covington, said, "If you please,
your honor, he is also known by
his Muslim name, Muhammad
"Do any of you know him per-
sonally by.his, Muslim name, Mu-
hammad Ali?" the judge then ask-
No one responded.c

Ingraham then asked a series
of questions that included whether
anyone had any religious beliefs
that might cause them to lean one
way or another. Again there was
no response.
The procedure ror questioning
was changed abruptly, however,
after the defense began question-
ing 12 prospects who had relatives
in the Armed service.
Quinnan Hodges, a Houston at-
torney, asked Earl Ashley of
Houston, who has a son in the
Air Force and a nephew in Viet-
nam, if this would influence him
in any way.
"Well, I think he's guilty my-
self," Ashley said.
Ingraham asked Ashley to re-
turn to his seat. He then had all
attorneys confer with him at the
After the conference, Ingraham
said to the prospective jurors,
"There was a statement made by
juror No. 11. You may have heard
or may not, I ask if anyone was
influenced and if so please rise,"
Again no one responded.
The attorneys then began ques-
tioning each juror in front of the
bench, out of hearing range of
the other members of the panel.
The entire jury panel had spent
the morning in another court
room where another case was get-
ting under way.
A single jury pool had been
summoned for the two cases. The
case of a man being tried on a

heroin smuggling charge had
priority so jurors for that trial,
in which well-know Houston law-
yer Percy Foreman headed the de-
fense, were sellected first.
In the hallway, Ali grabbed
Foreman by the arm and called
to Covington: "Hayden, Hayden,
you're fired. I've got me a law-
Covington, who predicted the
trial would last a maximum of
two days, was expected to center
his case around two points:
* That Ali is draft exempt as
a Black Muslim minister called
Muhammad Ali.,
" And that Ali and other Neg-
roes are systematically discrimin-
ated against by the nation's draft
boards, which Covington will arg-
ue are unfairly loaded with whites.
The charges grew out of All's
refusal April 28 to: take the tra-
ditional one step forward that
would have constituted his in-
duction into the. Army. He has
been free on $5,000 bond since a
federal grand jury indicated him
10 days later.
When he declined induction,
the World Boxing Association and
the New York State Athletic Com-
mission stripped him of his box-
ing crown which he earned during
an undefeated professional ca-
reer, beating 29 opponents, 23 by
knockouts. He is still recognized
as the champ in some areas of
the world.


MUHAMMAD ALI, right and in-set, rolls with a punch thrown by Alvin "Blue" Lewis' last Friday
in an exhibitior match at Detroit's Cobo Arena. Match may be Ali's last for some time as he faces
a stiff jail sentence if convicted for draft resistance.
