HOUSTON (P-The flying legs
of San Francisco's Willie Mays
built the only run of the game
and some sensational, National
League pitching made it stand up
for a. 1-0 victory over the Amer-
icans in the 39th All Star Game
It was the sixth straight victory
for the Nationals, who now lead
the series 21-17 and it may well
have been the most frustrating
loss for the Americans.
After California's Jim Fregesi
led off the first inning with a
double, 20 straight American
League hitters went down in order
against Don Drysdale of Los An-
geles, San Francisco's Juan Ma-
richal, St. Louis' Steve Carlton
and Tom Seaver of the New York
The Americans managed only
two more hits-both of them two
-out doubles against Seaver. And
both times the rallies ended on
Atlanta's Ron Reed and Jerry
Koosman of New York, completed
the three-hitter, splitting the
ninth inning between them.
The six National League hurlers

Mays, leading off, opened with
a single against Cleveland's Luis
Tiant, the AL starter. Before Tiant
ever made a pitch to Curt Flood,
he tossed over ,to first baseman
Harmon Killebrew. Mays stepped
Again Tiant watched him lead
away and again the Indians' right-
hander flipped to Killebrew. This
time, though, the ball got away
from the Minnesota first base-
man and Mays took off for second.
With runners at first and third
and none out, the AL played its
infield back for San Francisco
slugger Willie McCovey.

McCovey obliged, bouncing
sharply to Minnesota's Red Carew
at second base. Carew hesitated
ever so slightly, perhaps thinking
of trying to throw Mays out at
the plate, then went for the double
It was the logical play, con-
sidering the inning, but a fatal
one for the Americans. Mays

TOMMY HELMS of the Cincinnati Reds breaks up an attempted double play in the fourth inning

abled the National League squad to get the contest's only run-unearned-in what was termed a
"boring" game by a radio announcer.
PLAYER STRIKE LOOMS:
NFL owners consider alternative solutions
By The Associated Press
CHICAGO-The remote pos-
sibility that the National Football
League might abandon operations
for the 1968 season loomed yes-
terday at an emergency meeting
Art Rooney, owner of the
Pittsburgh Steelers, said, "The
purpose of this meeting is to de-
cide' if we are going to play foot-
ball this year or not.
"If we don't play, the National
Football League fans will have
to root for their favorite Ameri-
can Football League team or col-
lege or semipro team this season.
It's as simple as that."
Carroll Rosenbloom, owner of
the Baltimore Colts, expressed the
same sentiment last week in the
pension squabble with the players
which has reached the status of
a shutdown since none of the
teams will open training camp
until the matter is settled.
Art Modell, owner of the
Cleveland Browns and president
of the NFL, said yesterday as the
owners convened, "There will be
no meeting here for the purpose
of making any newoffers.
"This meeting now is for all
owners to hear a full and com-
plete report from the negotiating
committee. The whole thing will
be thrown open for discussion."
Asked if he thought there
would not be NFL operations in
1968, Modell said, "I know one
thing-the owners are working
Negotiations between commitees
representing the owners and the
players broke down Monday. The
player representatives departed
and Modell then called a meeting
of the owners as he announced
"pro football faces a long and
The players are demanding their
pension fund be increased im-
mediately. The owners are holding
out for a 1970 increase date and
appear adamant on the matter.
"We have gone as far as we can
possibly go," said Rooney, a ve-
teran owner of more than a quar-
ter century. "This is the first
time anything so serious has ever
come about since I've been con-
nected with the National Foot-
William Bidwell of the St. Louis
Carfinals was asked about the
original statement by Rosenbloom
and he said, "He wasn't just let-
ting off steam. There is a very
good possibility that we won't be
playipg football this season. It
has been discussed repeatedly by
the owners for the last few
NO AFL SUPPORT
Meanwhile, any support the NFL
players might have expected
from the American Football
League players disappeared yes-
Jack Kemp of the Buffalo
Bills, president of the AFL Play-
ers' Association, announced in
San Diego that AFL players will
not support any strike.
hemp cited the different eco-
reason for nt supporting an NFL
strike and added AFL players have
no thought of striking and de-
plore such action,
John Gordy of the Detroit Lions,
president of the National Football
League Players' Association, had
a one sentence reply yesterday to
the story out of San Diego which
stated American Football League
players will not support an NFL
"Who is Jack Kemp?" said
Gordy before departing for De-
Vince Lombardi of Green Bay
said he stands on his original
statement that the Packers will
play in the College All-Star Game
in Chicago Aug. 2 "if our team is
properly conditioned and if we
have a sufficient number of
rookies in camp to field a squad."
The owners left for their re-
spective homes with Modell say-
ing, "We will be available -to
meet with the Players' Association
at any time to arrive at any
mutual agreement. We were in
touch today with their attorney,
Dan Shulman of Chicago."
Modell also said consideration
of cancelling the 1968 season en-
tirely was not discussed.
Presumably, the NFL at this
point plans to go along with
rookies and whatever veterans
Modell added that members of
the taxi squads who are card-
bearing members of the associa-
tion also are included in the col-
lective bargaining at this time
and that there is no intention to
go into semipro or minor league
fields for talent.

... see what happens
The day of athletic separatism is past. Until recently, it was
possible for coaches, players and fans to escape into the rosy world
of field goals and high jumps from the reality of riots, poverty
But several issues have focused attention recently on relevant
parallels in the sports world to current social conditions.
First, and most dramatically, the threatened black boycott of
the Olympics extended the human rights struggle to athletics for
the first time since Jackie Robinson donned a uniform for the
Next, the demand submitted by blacks after seizing control
of various campus administration buildings that black coaches
be hired has been met here at the University and Western Michi-
gan as well as at several universities where seizures did not take
place (Michigan State).
The effect of these developments locally has been the initiation
of a program of foresight and involvement in community problems.
The current sports clinic innovated by new athletic director Don
Canham is an example of the constructive application of athletic
facilities to the instruction of community youth, especially the under-
These actions must be wholeheartedly supported. They are in-
dicative of an overall trend by universities toward greater involve-
ment in the community. Other, more academic manifestations of this
trend at the University are the tutorial projects and planned Inner
Nevertheless, the sports clinic is only a beginning step in
the right direction. There are other areas where the athletic
department has lagged sadly in meeting the needs of the various
members of the University community itself.
For instance, the non-varsity status of minor student sports such
as rugby, lacrosse, and soccer has relegated these teams to the lowest
totem on the priority pole. The present snail-paced construction work
on Wines Field-muddy home of many non-varsity athletic events-
may impede fulfillment of schedule obligations this fall.
A resolution by the. Board in Control of Intercollegiate Athletics
last March 16 calling for an "all-out effort" to secure "satisfactory
accommodations" for club sports, intramurals and recreation has
thus far yielded no discernable relief for the perennial space problem..
Another issue which speaks for itself is the antiquated spirit-
quelling practice of employing male gymnasts as cheerleaders at
football and basketball games. The current publicity buildup by the
athletic department for this year's football season naght include
women cheerleaders as a possible means of bridging MicMgan's
genderation gap, thereby revitalizing a rather time-worn image.
Women members of the press also have been neglected in the
past. At present, it is impossible for a woman reporter to obtain a
press box seat. Several papers, including The Daily, have com-
petent writers who have been refused admittance on the basis
of sex-possibly in violation of the public accommodations sections
of recent Civil Rights Acts.
Finally, there remains the serious deficiency of black coaches
in every sport except track. Needless to say, black men must be found
for coaching positions in the major sports if future confrontations
with afro-american student groups are to be avoided.
The steps which must be taken are obvious and reasonable.
The time to take them is now.

PHILADELPHIA (A') - Wilt
Chamberlain, professional basket-
ball's incomparable superplayer,
was traded - officially - by the
Philadelphia 76ers yesterday to
the Los Angeles Lakers.
In return, the 76ers received
three players - Archie Clark,
Darrell Imhoff and Jerry Cham-
bers. No cash was mentioned..
The announcement, at an early,
afternoon news conference in'
Philadelphia, ended months of
speculation that the 7'1" dunk
shot artist was headed for the
The Associated Press reported
last Friday that the deal had
Philadelphia apparently decided
to deal Chamberlain to the Lakers
because of his high salary de-
He reportedly made in excess of
$250,000 last year, making him the
highest salaried athlete in the
world. And he is believed to have
asked the 76ers for a three-year,
$1 million contract.
Most basketball fans feel the
acquisition of the 32-year-old
Chamberlain should make the
Lakers a shoo-in- for the National
Basketball Association)title next
season. He will team with two
other basketball greats - Elgin
Baylor and Jerry West.
The 76ers, in 'return, received a
solid guard in Clark, 26, a depend-
able, if not flashy, defensive cen-
ter in Imhoff, 29, and in Cham-
bers, a potentially good forward.
Chamberlain was not present
when Jack Ramsay, the 76ers'
general manager, disclosed the
deal. Ramsay made no- mention
of his pending appointment as
76ers' coach, succeeding Alex Han-
num who resigned last April after
two years at the helm.
The Associated Press learned
Ramsay will be named the new
Philadelphia coach within the
next week or 10 days.
The 76ers last year finished
first in the NBA's Eastern Divi-
sion, but were eliminated in the
playoffs by the Boston Celtics.
The previous season, Chamberlain
led the club to the league title,
defeating San Franrisco in the
There also were problems over
the 76ers' coaching position. After
Hannum quit, Chamberlain said
he would play only for certain
coaches, limiting the field if he
remained with the team.
Ramsay said he wanted a bench
coach, which eliminated a possi-
bility of Chamberlain taking over
as at player-coach. /
The 76ers feel the young players
they got in the trade will help
them in the future.
Clark is known for his blinding
speed, an ability that should make
the 76ers use the fast-break more
often. He should bolster the back-
court, where playmaker Wally
Jones is injury-prone and inval-
uable Hal Greer is no youngster
Imhoff is known for his defen-
sive play rather than scoring abil-
ity. An eight-year veteran he
grabs about 1,000 rebounds a year.
He'll probably replace Cham-
berlain as 76ers' center, although
6'9" forward Luke Jackson has
had experience at the post in col-
lege and in the pro ranks.
Chambers, with only one year's
NBA experience, could be the
sleeper in the deal. The slender
forward is a precision shooter -
both from the field and foul line.

JOHN GORDY, president of the NFL players' association, pauses
during a meeting in Chicago yesterday of National Football
League players' representatives. A player strike now appears
imminent, with owners and the association unable to come to
terms over club contributions to the pension fund. A suspension
of play for the 1968 season has been mentioned as the extreme
result possible if such a strike should occur.
