By The Associated Press
NEW YORK--Cassius Clay will
defend his heavyweight boxing
title against former champion
Floyd Patterson in Las Vegas,
Neg., April 25, it was learned last
An authoritative source said ne-
gotiations fell through for a De-
troit promotion of the bout and
that the Clay people decided to
take it to Las Vegas, where the
champion stopped6Patterson in 12
rounds Nov. 22, 1965.
According to the source, the
fight will be shown on closed-
circuit television in the United
States and Canada, and will be
beamed overseas via satellites to
Japan and parts of Europe.
Clay humiliated Patterson, who
twice held the heavyweight crown,
in their first meeting at Las Ve-
gas and later admitted in a tele-
cast he carried Floyd. Patterson
complained after the fight that
he had been hampered by a sore
It will be the 10th title defense
for the unbeaten Clay and the
eighth time he has put his crown
on the line in the last 13 months.
In his last defense Clay, or Mu-
hammed Ali as he prefers, knock-
ed out Zora Folley in the seventh
round at New York's Madison
Square Garden March 22.

Never on Sunday

posal to play Sunday baseball
games at its annual meeting last
December. The Snday afternoon
contests would have been held as
make-ups for Saturday afternoon

a motion that would have required
a team to play at least half its
16 scheduled Big Ten games in

Lose to Spartans, 9-3
WED., APRIL 5
By STEVEN RAPHAEL t
Though many Michigan sports
fans were unaware of it, one of
the athletic world's better battles
took place Sunday, as the lacrosse
team from Michigan State in-
vaded, and conquered, their club
counterparts from Michigan to the
tune of 9-3.
The melee at times seemed to be
each man for himself, as the green
Statesmen undiplomatically scored
three goals in the first five min-
utes of play. The battle song of
"The Victors" seemed like wishful
thinking at times, for, though the
Wolverine club was full of spirit,
organization was in short supply.
Near the end of the first quar-
ter, however, the Blue suddenly
caught fire and scored twice with-
in thirty seconds. But the flame
was short-lived, as Michigan State
scored twice in the second quarter,
to grab a 5-2 half-time lead.
The ten-minute truce seemed all
too short for a club trying to en-
dure the assaults of State's well-
coached squad. The two hundred
fans on hand seemed to under-
stand that varsity status will not
come without a winning record,
while a winning record will not
come without proper coaches. The
players, meanwhile, displayed the
ability and desire in a demanding,
eye-blurring sport which combines
the wildest parts of hockey, foot-
ball, and streetfighting; yet win-
ning comes only with proper
Goalie-coach Bob Di Giovanni
pleaded for more teamwork on the
part of his Blue squad as the sec-
ond half opened, but State began
by chalking up two more in short
Suddenly Di Giovanni went into
single punt formation, being
chased by three Green attachmen
as he ran to midfield after an ex-
cellent save. Only in lacrosse is it
possible to see a goalie elect to
scramble when his defense col-
lapses, but there's usually a reason.
And there was. Bill Fleischman,
co-coach and former All-American
from Rutgers, was lying on the
ground, felled by an illegal State
slash. As he staggered to his feet,
unsure of the location to the
bench, he received the standard
applause of the fallen hero.
But Fleischman wanted no help.
"I don't need a doctor," he yelled.
"Just get me my stick!"
State closed out play by scoring
twice more in the final minute.
The Blue were not done though,
scoring one, too. A referee, how-
ever, credited a Michigan player
with the assist.
And so it went in this, the final
game of the Michigan Invitational.
The Crossers next match will be
on Friday, as they engage Bowling
Green at Ferry Field.
