He said he visits the dressing

"The players all cooperate with

Rhodes claimed.

The NPSL denied the story, but
yesterday ruled that time outs will
be permitted in games to get in
the required number of commer-
cials, which is usually ten.
Ken Macker, the NPSL commis-
sioner said referees will signify a
delay for television by waving a
large red handkerchief over their
heads in a circular motion.
Macker said that referees may
now allow time outs after goals,
on goal kicks, following injuries
that require a trainer's attention
and before corner kicks and side-
line throw-ins.
"This new procedure," he ex-
plained, "has been designed to
provide needed time for our tele-
vision sponsors with a minimum
of inconvenience for our fans and
in a way that will be clearly visible
to all."
Rhodes also complained that the
television people made him buy a
.39 caliber starter's gun to replace
the .22 he was using because their
microphones couldn't pick up the
sound. "I bought the .38, but when
I put it in the pocket of my shorts,
the weight pulled them to my
ankles," he said.
Rhodes said he can hardly run
up and down the field with all the
equipment necessary.
Another official on the field
must carry similar equipment in
case the referee gets injured or is
unable to finish the game.

NEW YORK (I)-Puerto Rican
fighters will be barred from main
events at Madison Square Garden
for a cooling off period, it was
learned yesterday following the
second riot within 10 weeks and
the third in 21 months at a fight
show in the famed arena.
Bottles, pieces of chairs and
other missiles were tossed into the
ring and the ringside sections
Tuesday night shortly after light
heavyweight champion Dick Tiger
of Nigeria was awarded a split
decision over Puerto Rican-born
Jose Torres in a very close return,
15-round title bout.
Edwin B. Dooley, chairman of
the New York Athletic Commis-
sion, had his men busy preparing
a report to Gov. Nelson Rocke-
feller about the incident.
The other two riots involved
fights featuring Puerto Rican-
born Frankie Narvaez, a New York
lightweight who lost both times.
In the first, Narvaez dropped a
split decision in a close fight with
Flash Elorde of the Philippines on
Aug. 4, 1965. In the second, on
March 10, 1967, Panama's Ismael
Laguna decisively whipped Nar-
vaez and was awarded a unani-
mous decision by whopping mar-
As a result of the third riot, a
proposed title fight between light-
weight champion Carlos Ortiz, a
Puerto Rican-born New Yorker
and Laguna may not be held in
New York or may be put off for
some time. The fight had been
considered a sure sellout
A Garden source, who asked not
to be identified, said, "We can't
go with that or any main event
with a Puerto Rican for some time
after this one."
But, Harry Markson, boxing di-
rector of the Garden, said he and
matchmaker Teddy Brenner were
going ahead with plans to pair
Tiger with Roger Rouse, the No. 1

contender from Anaconda, Mont.,
in the Garden in September.
Rouse had been promised a bout
with the winner within 90 days
but presumably would be satisfied
with a September date.
In the aftermath of the bottle-
throwing outbreak Tuesday in
which 11 persons were injured,
chairman Edwin B. Dooley of the
New York Athletic Commission de-
clared "the Garden owes it to the
public to give adequate protection
to the public if it is to remain
in the business of promoting fights
under the commissioner's jurisdic-
"If they cannot do that, maybe
they should close up the balcony.
They might need 20 to 40 extra
men at times up there and in the
mezzanine although the Garden
did strengthen its police staff for
the Tiger-Torres fight."
"We had extra police and we
thought this was adequate based
on 40 years of experience in the
Garden," said Markson. "But if
we need more then we'll add

By The Associated Press
Slugging dominated action in
both leagues last night as the
Orioles belted seven home runs in
their game while Detroit was com-
ing back strong with a grand slam
and two single blasts. St Louis
and Atlanta both took their games
on led off homers in the ninth
and the long ball took the Giants
over the Cubs as well.

home runs and Jim Northrup
crashed a grand slam following
three walks in the third inning
as the Detroit Tigers defeated the
Washington Senators 8-1 last
Joe Sparma won his fourth
game- without a loss, pitching a
three-hitter and striking out 10.
He gave up a leadoff homer to
Fred Valentine in the fourth.
Pete Rose drove in one run and
scored another and Tony Perez
drove in two as the National
League leading Cincinnati Reds
won their fifth straight game, 3-1
over the Pittsburgh Pirates.
Sammy Ellis, 4-2, yielded nine
hits, 'but the Pirates got to him
only in the second when they tied
the game at 1-1 as Bill Mazeroski
singled, advancedon a wild pitch
and scored on Donn Clendenon's
American League leading Chi-
cago White Sox bombed Jim Kaat,
who had beaten them nine
straight, in a three-run fourth
inning and went on to defeat the
Minnesota Twins 5-4.
Joel Horlen boosted his record
to 5-0 but needed help from Bob

Locker in the eighth after Har-
mon Killebrew blasted his fifth
homer and Bob Allison and Zoilo
Versalles singled. Another run

fire by striking out Earl Battey.
The Baltimore Orioles crashed

a nine-run seventh inning, and
outslugged the Boston Red Sox,

and Detroit June 23, 1950.

ninth inning powered the Atlanta
Braves to a 4-3 victory over the

Yanks scored five times on a
three-run homer by Tom Tresh,
a solo shot by Mickey Mantle and
a pinch single by Charlie Smith.

Purdue Favored as Big Ten Golfers
Meet Here for 72-Hole Tournament


Purdue will be a favorite when
Big Ten golfers gather for the
Conference championships which
begin tomorrow over the tough
Michigan golf course, but Ohio
State and the host Wolverines will
be important factors in the pic-
ture, too.
The test run of the second an-
nual Northern Collegiate 72-hole
tournament here, proved to be
even more than that it is shaping
up into a major collegiate tourna-
ment which top college teams will
be eyeing closely in the future.
The Boilermakers won the rug-
ged two-day test of a difficult test
and cold weather, with Florida, a

top southern team, as runner-up
and the Buckeyes and Michigan
Although Dave Oakley of Flor-
ida won the individual honors
with a 78-77-74-71-300, the Boil-+
ermakers showed remarkable con-
sistency in fashioning a team
score of 1,539. Coach Sam Voinoff
commented at the conclusion of
the meet, "We won because we
were consistent. We didn't have
any bad scores." And then he
added, "It was a pleasure to beat
a strong southern team-it will
give Big Ten golf a real boost."
Purdue's team effort ran 389-
401-381-378 for its 1,539 total with

Florida just seven strokes away
with 384-404-386-372-1,546.
Although Jeff Parry of the
Buckeyes made a hole in one on
the 175 yard fifth hole, last year's
champions couldn't catch the
leaders as they finished 388-398-
Michigan grabbed an early lead
as John Schroeder, last year's co-.
champ with Alex Antonio of the
Buckeyes, fired a 70 first round
and his teammate John Richard
came in with 71, but they, too,
fell off the gruelling pace. Mich-
igan State, another strong con-
tender in the Conference meet,
turned in a 1,570 mark.

* It does all the work,
but on Saturday night which one goes to the party?
Once upon a time there was an ugly little bug.
It could go about 27 miles on just one gallon of gas.
It could go about 40,000 miles on just one set of
tires. And it could park in tiny little crevices no big-
ger than a bug.
It wag just right for taking father to the train or
the children to school. Or for taking mother to the
grocery store, drugstore, dime store and all the
enchanting places mothers go when everyone else
is working.
The ugly little bug was just like one of the family.
But alas, it wasn't beautiful.
So for any important occasion the poor ugly
little bug would be replaced. By a big beautiful
chariot, drawn by 300 horses!
Then, after a time, a curious thing 'happened.
The ugly little bug (which was made very sturdily)
never got uglier. But the big beautiful chariot didn't
exactly get more beautiful. In fact, in a few years
its beauty began to fade. Until, lo and behold, the
ugly little bug didn't look as ugly as the big beautiful
chariot! The moral being: if you want to show
