Garrett to 'stay in pro football;
SBench asks for 500 grand
By The Associated Press
SAN DIEGO - Running back Mike Garrett will stay in
professional football, forsaking a planned career in baseball, the
San Diego Chargers announced yesterday.
"I decided after much deliberation that my best long-range
interests were to continue to play football," said Garrett, 26.
Garrett, a 5-foot-9, 200-pounder, was drafted by the Los Angeles
Dodgers after starring in the outfield for the University of Southern
" California. He had said he planned to go to spring training with the
Dodgers this year.
40LOS ANGELES - Johnny Bench, the 23-year-old catcher who
was the National League's Most Valuable Player in 1970, wants a
three-year contract in the neighborhood of $500,000.
In Los Angeles for a television appearance, Bench admitted
he is making big money in relation to his age -- 23 - but added,
"I don't want people to think I'm out of bounds.".
Predicting something of a tug-of-war with the Cincinnati front
office, Bench observed:
"They're hard people to deal with. They don't want to pay me
too much too soon because of what they'll have to pay me in the
future.
* MIAMI BEACH - Muhammad Ali was licensed Monday to
fight in Miami Beach and immediately started talking abputI staging
an exhibition within the next two weeks to tune up for his scheduled
title bout in New York March 8 against Joe Frazier.
"It wouldn't do any harm," Ali told Angelo Dundee, his manager
yesterday. "Ten rounds in front of a crowd, with the pressure, the
strain of action.. ."
0 SAN DIEGO - Lance Alworth says he is staying in professional
football with the San Diego Chargers and dropping his $5.6-million
suit against the National Football League team. A . settlement, he
says, met his demands "more or less half way."
Alworth, a three-time all-pro receiver, says he's also forgetting
an antitrust suit against the NFL and its 26 teams.
In his suit, filed last Dec. 7, the 80-year-old Alworth accused the
Chargers of breach of contract and asked that his tie to the team
he declared null and void.

in the game, but they closed the
gap slowly and went ahead for the
first time with 2:33 to go at 68-67.
Indiana then sank two foul shots
but the Spartans surged into the
lead again with 42 seconds to go on
a layup by Pat Miller. A foul by
Bill Kilgers gave Wright his de-
cisive shots.
Indiana led 46-37 at half-time,
even though Michigan State shot
a torrid 65 per cent from the floor
in the first half.
The Spartans are now2-4 insthe
Big Ten and 8-8 on the season,
while the Hoosiers upped their con-
ference mark to 3-2 and their sea-
son record to 11-4.
SIU smacks Badgers
CARBONDALE, Ill. - South-
ern Illinois University scored 10
straight points near the end of
the game while Wisconsin failed
to score, to break open a tight
game and win an 86-75 intersec-
tional basketball victory last night.
The score was tied 14 times and
the lead changed hands 10 times
in the game.
SIU took the lead at 12:30 of
the first half on a basket by John
Garrett, built up a nine-p o i n t
cushion and led 42-36 at the half.
Wisconsin took the lead briefly{
in the second half, at 50-48, on a
basket by Leon Howard, but SIU
surged back to regain it.
Although the score was tied
once, SIU was never headed for
the rest of the game.
With seven minutes left to play,
the Salukis went on their scor-
ing burst, hiking the score from
63-62 to 73-62.
L. C. Brasfield and Greg Star-
rick led SIU in scoring with 22
points each. Howard was high-
man for Wisconsin with 21 points.
SIU is now 7-8 and Wisconsin
6-9.
AP cage poll

When a little five-year-old is
recruited to even out the teams
for a neighborhood pick-up
game of basketball among eight
and nine-year-olds he quickly
learns how to hold his own. It
was in such a setting, with his
older brother pushing a little,
that Wayne Grabiec was first
inducted into the game involving
a round ball and a hoop.
Grabiec describes his e a r l y *
training. "I had to learn how to
shoot and make them because
my brother sort of tore me apart
if I didn't. Also, they didn't
give me much time to take a
shot and I was too small to get
very near the basket. I just shot
from outside and hoped it went
in."
He still likes to shoot from
outside even now that he has the
height and ability to make his
way nearer the basket. He is
considered to be the best out-
side shooter on the Wolver-
ine squad.
Grabiec comments on this ob-
servation. "Ninety-five percent
of my shots are from outside
15 feet, but ninety-five percent
of those are wide-open shots. I
really don't have to make my
own move. Hank (Wilmore) has
to work and move for his bas-
kets. I'm facing the basket and

outside, whereas he has to
squeeze and lean and fake to
get position to shoot."
Grabiec did not always have
the advantage of height, but
this "disadvantage" has helped
him make the transformation
from forward to guard this sea-
son. "I was 5-6 until late in my
junior year in high school, so
I played guard. I grew a foot in
about one and one-half years,
but I continued at guard. Prior
to coming to Michigan I had al-
ways handled the ball."
Assistant coach Fred Snowden
evaluates Grabiec in this way,
"Going into this season he had
the most difficult chore of any
of the team members. I know
how tough it is to play the back-
court in college since that's
where I played. A player can
play there all his career and
still not know everything about
it. Wayne hasrdone a really
great Job for us. I'm very
pleased and proud of his im-
provement."
Some of the aspects in which
Snowden feels Grabiec has made
the necessary improvement are
"Ball-h a n d 1I n g, generalship,
and his floor game. He needed
about an 80 per cent improve-
ment and he's given us more."
Grabiec himself finds that
this is all part of a general "200
per cent improvement since my
freshman year. After my first
year here it didn't look like I'd
play much, but I've had some
breaks and have improved some.
I still have another 100 per-
cent to go, though."

The hardest part of switch-
ing to guard was "Having con-
fidence on defense. You need it
in all phases of the game, but
I had trouble with it on de-
fense."
"Coach Snowden has helped
me a lot in this respect. He's giv-
en me tips on ball-handling
and other technical points, but
he's really been a great help con
fidence-wise. Like with passing,
he'll give me a sign of confi-
dence after I make a good pass.
It's gotten to the point where I
enjoy a good pass this year as
much as a basket."
Another demand made upon a
guard is "to be a lot smarter.
You have to understand and
know all phases of the game --
when to run, pass, and force the
play. My handling the ball more
naturally helped that phase of
my game and I've had to learn
to look for and hit the open
man. This is one of the reasons
we're winning. Everyone's look-
ing for the open man or trying
to get open to help. Everyone's
working together and just try-
ing to help the team with their
overall play."
One of the aids the coaches
devised to make the switch easier
were drills they sent to Grabiec
over the summer. "They sent
dribbling drills, ones on how to
use my ,hands, and on different
moves. They were really excel-
lent and have really paid off for
me. This summer I worked to-
ward becoming a starting guard,
and knowing they had confidence
in me helped a lot."

REPRESENTS BLACK STARS

Paige proud to be named in Hall

NEW YORK (R) - Satchel
Paige, the ageless pitching marvel
vhose exploits have made him
part of American baseball folk-
lore, doggedly maintained yes-
terday "I don't feel segregated"
after his election to the Hall of
Fame in a special category honor-
ing Negro League stars.
"I heard they had a place for
me," Paige said slowly and dis-
tinctly. "I'm proud wherever they
put me in the Hall of Fame. Every
year I played, I said that was my
best year. I know this is my best
year."
The question of Paige's feelings
in response to his designation as
the first black player to be hon-
ored in this manner - criticized
by some for separating blacks and
whites - virtually dwarfed the
proceedings presided over by
Commissioner Bowie Kuhn.

But, despite persistent prodding
by media representatives, Paige
never once uttered a word criticiz-
ing his selection by the method
announced only last week. And
Kuhn underscored the fact th a t
Paige will be fully accepted as a
Hall of Famer.
"Technically he's not in the Hall
of Fame," the commissioner ack-
nowledged. "But realistically t h e
Hall of Fame is a state of mind-
and I think the fans feel that
way."
Paige is not eligible for selection
to the Hall of Fame as a major
leaguer since he does not fulfill
the requirement of having played
10 years in the majors - a re-,

quirement which none of the old
stars of the Negro Leagues can
meet.
But besides emphasizing his
pleasure at being selected, Paige
pointed out he has never been bit-
ter toward the sport because black
players were prohibited from play-
ing in the majors until Jackie
Robinson broke the color line in
1947.
"Quite a few people told me if
I was white I would be playing
in the big leagues," Paige ac-
knowledged. "But I never did feel
'any bitterness. I was satisfied with
my world - playing all over and
being a keynote to black people.
