AL RACE TIGHTENS:
Detroit Moves up on Chicago;

Released on Bond for Appeal;
Quic Decision ncludes Fine
By The Associated Press
Champion, Muhammad Ali lost a
bout in Federal Court yesterday
as an all-white jury found him
guilty on a charge of refusing in-
duction into the military service
and was promptly sentenced to
five years in prison.
Ali, in a surprise move, asked
Federal Judge Joe Ingraham to
sentence him imediately after the
jury deliberated only 21 minutes.
However, the maneuver appear-
ed to be a formality, since at-
torneys immediately said they will
appeal the case and Ali left the
court on the same $5,000 bond he
had been under since May 8, when
he was indicted.
The sentence was the maximum
provided for such a case and his
attorneys said it had been ex-
pected. He will also be fined
The verdict ended a trial that
had lasted less than two days and
had included less than five hours
of testimony by only eight wit-
nesses-four for each side.
All did not take the stand.
Ali has claimed the draft exemp-
tion on the grounds he is Black
Before the closing arguments,
Judge Ingraham heard--out of the
presence of the jury-a seven-
point motion seeking an instructed
verdict as acquittal. He rejected it.
Attorney Hayden Covington said
in the motion that Ali is only a
parttime boxer and that the min-
istry unquestionably is his voca-
"He is sort of a traveling bishop,
going from mosque to mosque,
temple to temple, bringing in great
crowds in every city he visits."
But U.S. Atty. Morton L. Sus-
man said that in the occupation
blank of the medical information
Ali filled out April 28, he had
written, "heavyweight boxing world
Judge Ingraham also noted that
All's draft board file included sev-
eral letters Ali had written to the
board in 1966, saying he was leav-
ing the country to fight.
Ingraham noted specifically it
was not the duty of the jury to
decide whether the defendant was
due an exemption from the draft
because of his religion.
"The court has read the draft
board file and has found there was
a basis in fact for 1-A classifica-
tion," Ingraham told the jurors.
"You are not to consider this."
Ingraham had made such a
finding while turning down a de-
fense motion for an instructed
verdict of acquittal.
U.S. Atty. Morton L. Susman
argued that Ali's fight with selec-
tive service officials amounted to
"a determined and ingenious effort
to avoid military service."
Alis attorneys, Hayden Coving-
ton of New York City, and Quin-
nan Hodges of Houston told the
jury Clay had sincere religious
beliefs when he refused April 28
to take the step forward as re-
quired by law upon induction into
the Armed Services.
Asst. U.S. Atty. Carl Walker Jr.
replied that "sincerity is not an
issue here The issue is whether or
not the defendant obeyed the law."
Ecuador Upsets America
In Davis Cup Zone Final
By The Associated Press
The Washington Senators cap-
italized on two unearned runs--
one on an obstruction play-for
a 4-2 victory over the Chicago
White Sox last night.
hIn DetroitAl Kalinedoubled
home the tying run and Jim
Northrup singled him in with the
winner in the eighth inning, pull-
ing the Detroit Tigers from be-
hind to a 2-1 victory over the
California Angels, to tighten up
the American League race.
The Chicago loss ended a three-
game winning string for the Amer-
ican League leaders.
Frank Bertaine, acquired from
Baltimore in the recent Mike Ep-
stein trade, posted his first vic-
tory for the Senators with relief
help from Darold Knowles.
The key play of the game oc-
curred in the sixth inning, when
the Senators, leading 2-1, had run-
ners on first and second with two
Paul Casanova singled up the
middle and center fielder Tommie
Agee fired a strike home, nailing
Epstein at the plate. The um-
pires, however, ruled third base-
man Don Buford obstructed Ep-
stein and the run was allowed.
GUAYAQUIL, Ecuador tP) -
Texan Cliff Richey salvaged a
final singles victory over Miguel
Olvera yesterday that made the
final score 3-2 in favor of the
jubilant Ecuador tennis team over
the United States in the American
Zone final of the Davis Cup tour-
The last loss, which had no sig-
nificance, failed to dim the en-
thusiasm of the home forces, still
celebrating their amazing upset of
the favored Americans.
The clinching triumph was sup-
plied Monday by 21-year-old Fran-
cisco Guzman when he tumbled
Arthur Ashe, America's top-rank-
ing amateur, for a 3-1 advantage
in the best-of-five series.
Guzman, the son of a banker,
and Olvera, a once sickly young-
ster from a poor family, did the
entire giant-killing job.
Richey won the opening singles
match over Guzman on Saturday.
But on Sunday Guzman and 01-
vera combined to whip the heavily
favored doubles team of Clark
Graebner and Marty Riessen,
while Olvera toppled Ashe.
The Americans -had been favored
to win by at least 4-1. The experts
figured the Yankees might lose a
singles match but few, if anyone,
believed the South Americans
could vanquish the seasoned dou-
bles team of Graebner, of Beach-
wood, Ohio, and Riessen, of Evan-
The surprise triumph sent Ecua-
dor into the interzone finals for
the first time. The South Amer-
icans will meet the winner of the
European Zone A final between
Spain and Russia.
It was the sixth time in eight
years that the United States failed
to make the Challenge Round. It
used to be an annual affair be-
tween the United States and Aus-
The news of the upset stunned
Australia, land of the Cup holders.
The Americans' loss will be costly
to the Australians because no
other team fills the stadium there
like the Americans.
This year the Challenge Round
will be held at the 7,025-seat Mil-
ton Courts in Brisbane, Dec. 26-28.
Detroit reliever George Brunet
put himself in hot water by hit-
ting Don Wert with a pitch with
one out in the inning and Ka-
line followed with his shot against
the left field wall. Bill Freehan
was walked intentionally before
Northrup singled to right.

York Mets, blanking them on only

Joe Foy hit a grand slam homer
in the fifth inning and Carl Yas-
trzemski followed with a bases-
empty blast as the Boston Red

ing of Gary Bell.
The loss was the Yankees' fourth
in a row. Foy walloped his grand
slam into the left field seats and

of the year against the upper deck
facade in right.
