Roya is'
By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON - Rep. S a m
Steiger, R-Ariz., said yesterday
that Jerry Jacobs, owner of the
Cincinnati Royals of the National
Basketball Association, has con-
nections with underworld organ-
ized crime figures.
Steiger made his statement in
testimony to the Senate Antitrust:
subcommittee that is holding hear-
ings on a bill to permit merger,
of the American Basketball As-
sociation and the NBA.
"Their history," Steiger said of
Jerry Jacobs and his brother,
Max, the operating head of t he
Royals, "is replete with reports of
business associations with under-
world and organized crime fig-
ures."
Steiger also said Jerry Jacobs
is head of the Emprise Corp., a'
Buffalo. N.Y., holding company,
which controls Sportservices, a
subsidiary.
Steiger said the original interest
of the Jacobs brothers, was in

ball parks. Subsequently, he said,
they became "very active at pari-
mutuel operations, horse racing,
dog racing and jai-alai, first as
concessionaires and then as in-
vestors."
Steiger said Sportservice oper-
ates concessions for the Baltimore
Colts, Buffalo Bills, Cleveland
Browns, Detroit Lions, St. Louis,
Cardinals and Washington R e d-
skins, all of the National Football'
Leagce, and baseball teams in
Miami, Montreal, Cincinnati and
St. Louis.
"There is a great deal more,''
Steiger said.
He said Sportservice has made
at least two loans to major league
baseball teams, with the Montreal
Expos receiving over $2 million
and the Milwaukee Brewers over
$4 million.
Steiger said the New Mexico
State Racing Commission found
Emprise "unfit to operate a pari-

ity infielder to be named later. Hyman Glitz, the Daily's sand expert
and resident slum lord made the announcement here today with these
words, "Power is inversely related to the root mean squared."
In Ann Arbor, the tone was one of "guarded caution." However, it

DETROIT (AP) - General Mana-
ger Ed Coil of the Detroit Pistons
confirmed yesterday reports that
the National Basketball team pro-
bably would be sold before next
season.
Coil said at least six firm of-
fers have been made for the NBA
club owned by Fred Zollner, 71-
year-old industrialist.
Coil declined to name any of
the six groups or to say how
much Zollner was asking for the
franchise. .The going rate for

NBA franchises now is about $5
million, he said.
Zollner said two weeks ago he
had received several exploratory
offers for the ball club.
"For the past three or four
years, we have been approached
every year," Coil explained. "But
it has always been by a third per-
son, usually an attorney repre-
senting someone. Fred has never
talked to any of the principals.
"One of the requisites Fred has
is that he has to sell the team to
a local group or a local individ-
ual," said Coil. "But the price has
got to be right, I'm sure. If it is
not, I am just as certain Fred
Zollner won't sell. As he said, he
doesn't need the money."
He said the NBA was also in-
terested in keeping the teai* in
Detroit, since Detroit is one of
the nation's largest television
markets.
