his regular job because of his long
scoring drought. But he got ano-
ther chance as New York Emile
Francis shuffled his lines around
during a scoreless first period.
Bob Nevin got the Rangers on
the scoreboard just 45 seconds
into the second period, converting
a pass from Irvine. Irvine' a 1 s o
assisted - on Pete Stemkowski's
power play goal at the 5:10 mark,
giving New York a 2-0 edge.
Then Irvine scored his 11th
goal of the season and first since

of the period. Irvine hit again with
36 seconds gone in the third per-

Braves
By The Associated Press
BUFFALO - Donny May scored;
29 points, 16 in the first quarter, to
lead the Buffalo Braves to a 106-
99 victory over the sliding New
York Knicks in a hot-tempered Na-
tional Basketball Association game
last night.
The Knicks played half the game:
without their star center, Willis
Reed, who scored just four pointsV
before being thrown out on a dou-
ble technical foul.
Reed was hit with a technical
after officials called him for an
offensive foul and he slammed the
ball to the court, then was thrown
out with 29 seconds remaining in
the first half when he argued about
the call.'
In addition to missing more than
half of last night's game, Reed will
undergo five days of examination
at a New York hospital for an in-
flamed left knee, the New Yorke
Knicks said.
The club said Reed would be
lost for two games, then would
probably make the road trip to the
West Coast for a National Basket-
ball Association contest with Los'
Angeles next Tuesday.
"Willis will undergo five days of
anti-inflammatory x-ray treat-
ment," a team spokesman said.
"It had nothing to do with his per-,
formance of late, just something
we've been thinking about a while."
May paced Buffalo to a 58-41
halftime lead, then led a Braves'
runaway in the second half as they
built leads up to 23 points. The
Knicks scrambled back in the
closing minutes behind Dick Bar-
nett to come within seven points,
104-97, with 48 seconds to go.
But May and Dick Garrett, who

bounce Knicks

had 21 points, held off the Knick
surge and the Braves handed the
defending NBA champions their
fifth straight loss and snapped a
six-game slide for themselves.
Barnett led the New York scor-
ing with 21.

Celts socked
ATLANTA - An explosive three-
minute burst at the end of the
third period carried surging At-
lanta to a 114-102 triumph over
Boston in a National Basketball
Association game here last night.
In that span, Atlanta came up
with five steals for a 13-0 spurt that
made the score 89-73 and sealed the
Hawks' sixth triumph in the last

eight games. Pete Maracich, who
scored 28 points, had three steals
and six points in spurt. The rookie
also added 11 rebounds.
Also sparkling for the Hawks
was forward Bill Bridges who had
a season high of 27 rebounds. John
Havlicek led Boston with 23 points.

Dodgers deal for Downing;
Porter 'signed' by Condors
By The Associated Press
* LOS ANGELES-Striving to bolster their pitching, the Los
Angeles Dodgers announced yesterday they have traded outfielder
Andy Kosco to the Milwaukee Brewers for lefthander Al Downing.
Both players ares 29 and were teammates in 1968 with the New
York Yankees.
Downing, with Oakland and Milwaukee in 1970, had a 5-13 record.
Kosco batted .228, hit eight home runs and drove in 27 runs.
Dodger vice president Al Campanis said the club may trade for
still another southpaw pitcher.
! PITTSBURGH - The operations director of the Pittsburgh
Condors said yesterday Villanova star Howard Porter "will be in a
Condor uniform."
Mark Binstein, however, said he "will not comment" on the con-
troversy over whether Porter actually has signed a contract with
the American Basketball Association team.
Porter, a high-scoring 6-foot-8 forward, was Pittsburgh's No. 1
choice in the recent "secret" ABA draft in Charlotte, N.C.
Binstein, at a news conference, also said the Condors would "try
to obtain the rights" to Garry Nelson of Duquesne, selected by Texas
in the draft.
Binstein, who has replaced Marty Blake at the helm of the club,
also said the Condors "will be here next year." The ABA franchise
has left town and returned once, and poor attendance at home games
gave rise to speculation that the team would again seek a new home.

0 NEW YORK-Bill White, former major league first baseman,
was named yesterday as a broadcaster for the New York Yankees, the
first black to hold such a. job in the majors.
White, 36, who played for the New York and San Francisco
Giants, St. Louis Cardinals and Philadelphia Phillies, had been asso-
ciated with a Philadelphia television station. He joins Phil Rizzuto
*nd Frank Messer as Yankee broadcasters.
0 BLUEFORD, Ill.-Bluford High School's eight-man basketball
squad battled foul troubles throughout during a 91-73 loss to visiting
Wayne City Tuesday night.
The battle ended with seven seconds left on the clock. Seven
Blueford players had fouled out and there was no one left to throw,
.,he ball in to.
0 KANSAS CITY-Elmo Wright, Kansas City Chiefs' No. 1 draft
selection, underwent surgery at a Kansas City hospital yesterday to
repair a slightly torn cartilage in his left knee, a team spokesman
said.
Wright, who starred at the University of Houston as a wide
.receiver, underwent the surgery immediately so the knee would be
rehabilitated in time for the opening of the National Football League
team's training camp in July, the spokesman said.

MIAMI BEACH (P) - Muham-
mad Ali's training camp is de-
corated in early Damon Runyon.
Earthy if not elegant.
"Hey, somebody swat that mos-
quito," said Angelo Dundee. "He'
got in without paying."
It's no place for Emily Post.
Nickel-dime fighters pound bags,
jumped ropes and do situps as the
crowd multiplies in the Fifth Street
gym. They pretend the people
came out to watch them . . . but,,
they know better.
Muhammad Ali's ebony body
prances from a makeshift dress-
ing room and the people applaud.
Fans will pay $150 a head for
ringside seats when Ali battles Joe
Frazier for the heavyweight title
March 8 in New York.
Here, the admission is $149 less.
All bounces into the training,
ring and begins shadow boxing.
Onlookers scan his unmarked
body. Most are amazed at his
size, 6-foot-3 and 221 pounds.
"I'm ready," Ali announces.
"Get Stanford."
Stanford Harris, a squat 235-
pound Jamaican, climbs up and
trades .shots with the cobra-quick
Ali for three rounds. Harris is
wearing 16-ounce gloves, twice the
size of what Frazier will swing.
Dundee, gym proprietor and Ali's
trainer, talks with his man after
Harris is done. So does Drew
"Bundini" Brown, another Ali aide.
Despite such chat sessions, it's
apparent the man is bossed only
by himself. If Ali wants to box
some more, he does. That's that.
He wants more this time.
Bunky Akins pulls his over-mus-
cled body through the ropes and
becomes Ali's target for two
rounds. The defrocked champion
works hard on pinning Akins in a

corner, the way he hopes to do
against Frazier.
Cassius Clay Sr. whips out a
pancake-sized gold pocket w a t c h'
and begins timing something. The
old man usually stands in the
shadows.
Across the ring, a plump lady
watches with a slight smile. She's
Odessa Grady Clay, mother of the
man now known as Muhammad
Ali.
"Sure. I worry anytime my sons
fight," she said. "But I think he'll
beat Joe Frazier. I always think
he'll win ... he always has.
By now, the gym smells of per-
spiration.
"People gonna be shocked how
easy I beat Joe Frazier," says Ali
in a sudden explosion of brash-
ness. "He made his reputation
beatin' guys who wouldn't be a
good workout for me."
Ali's sweat drips as he leans
over the ropes. Handlers untape
his fists.
"Frazier just moved his training
camp to Philadelphia," he s a i d.
"He's all confused. The weather's
against him . .. the hotel food is
against him."
Ali's diet is built around fresh
cooked vegetables, beef and lamb.
It's cooked for him specially in his*
apartment at Octagon Towers,
across Washington Ave. from
Miami Beach Convention Hall.
Former World Boxing Associa-
tion heavyweight champ Jimmy
Ellis arrived by now. He works al-
most unnoticed until Ali yells, "I
want James Ellis in the r i n g.
Bring James Ellis up here to fight
the greatest boxer in the world."
Its' all a gag, but newcomers to
the gym never seem to catch on.
They gasp as handlers execute re-
straint of the heavyweights.
"Will you box me, James Ellis?"
Ali growls.

"I'll get you if you beat J o e
Frazier," returns Ellis.
"He's all but whupped," said Ali.
"So you can come on up on this
ring."
End of show. The fighters joke
about it in the dressing room min-
utes later.
A fourth member of the Louis-
ville family has spent the day
creating a head-wracking noise in
the back of the gym. ,Rahaman
Ali raps the light bag, keeping his
heavyweight frame in shape "-
mostly to box preliminarieshbefore
his famed brother's fights. Raha-
man was formerly Rudolph Val-
entino Clay.
Most of the buck-a-head fans
have gone when the phone in a
battered, old booth rings. Some-
body wants to speak to Ali.
He emerges again from t h e
dressing area, clad in an unmark-
ed terrycloth robe. Ali gives the
radio newsman in Pittsburgh a 10-
minute interview.
"That fellow told me Jack
Dempsey said he don't think I can
take a punch," Ali says. "I have
great respect for Mr. Dempsey, but
I'm telling him here and now that
I don't plan ever finding out."
"Ain't nobody hit me good yet.
Joe Frazier ain't gonna be the
first. I'm just too quick, too
good .,..
