LOUISVILLE, Ky. (P) - Artis
Gilmore, the 7-foot 2 center from
Jacksonville University, has sign.
ed a multimillion dollar contract
with the Kentucky colonels, the
Louisville Times said yesterday. i
The newspaper s a i d Gilmore,
who arrived here early Tuesday,
reportedly would receive in excess,
of '$2 million for playing with the
American Basketball Association
The sum, if accurate, represents
more money than any ABA play-
er ever has received.
The formal signing is expected
to take place, Tuesday night at
midcourt between games of an;
ABA doubleheader here.
Last year, theColonels signed
Dan Issel, the University of Ken-
tucky All-America player for a
reported $1.4 million.
Gilmore earned his reputation
as an intimidating defensive play-
In 25 games with Jacksonville
this teason, he averaged 22.3
points and 23.2 rebounds per
game. But even more impressive1
was the fact he blocked 258 shots
- an average of 10.3 per game. 3
His team was eliminated from
the NCAA post-season competi-
tion in a first round Mideast re-
gional g a me by Western Ken-
tucky last Saturday.
Gilmore was the Colonels' first
round draft choice this year.

MVP's feted
Sophomore Henry Wilmore and
senior Dan Fife were named co-
winners of the Bill Buntin Award
at the Michigan basketball bust
Monday night at Weber's Inn.
The Buntin Award is given an-
nually to the most valuable player
on the Michigan squad.
Fife captained the team to an
18-6 mark this year while scoring
at a pace of 13.2 points a game. His
hustle inspired the Wolverines and
his occasionally unorthodox passes
dazzled fans.
Leading the team in scoring with
a mark of 26 points per game, Wil-
more copped a host of honors in
his initial varsity season. Along
with Indiana's George McGinnis he
was the only unanimous choice to
the recently-named All Big Ten
team. Besides his impressive scor-
ing stats, Henry cleared the boards
for 9.5 caroms a game.
Fife and Wilmore will lead Mich-
igan into National Invitational
Tournament action Sunday against
Wilmore will be returning to
his home grounds when Michigan
travels to New York for the NIT.
He played high school ball with
Mel Davis, current star of St.
John's, another 1971 NIT squad.

PHOENIX, Ariz. () - Already
firmly-entrenched in baseball's all-
time record books for almost every
batting category, Willie Mays of
the San Francisco Giants embarks
on his 21st season with his philoso-
phy "to enjoy the game."
Second only to Babe Ruth in
home runs throughout base ball's
history, Mays' 628 are 'the most
ever by a right handed batter.
Willie, who will be 40 on May
6, doesn't set goals for himself
and never has, saying, "If I try
to set goals, I don't do anything.
I'm concentrating on having fun in
the game and not forcing myself."
Since joining the Giants in 1951
as the "Say Hey Kid," Willie has'
belted his way into the top 10 in
runs, hits, total bases, home runs
batted in and extra base hits. In
baseball's long lifetime, only Hank
Aaron holds a similar distinction.
Last year, Mays appeared in 139
games and hit .291, including 28
homers, putting him closer to
Ruth's 714.
As usual, Mays reported this
spring close to his playing weight
of 185. He's quit playing basketball
during the winter, but does play

golf. Steam baths, massage and'
walking help him keep in physical
"The off-season is more import-
ant to ,conditioning than the sea-
son." he observes. "When you're
playing, you stay in shape with the
During the spring, Willie prefers
to play himself into shape, explain-
ing, "When you exercise too much,
you're not able to swing the bat."
Manager Charlie Fox plans once
again not to use his center fielder
in both games of double headers
but otherwise the playing schedule
is flexible "depending on how he
Fox also doesn't want to play
Mays in games on cold nights early
in the season.
"I really don't know how many
games I will play," says the star
whose fielding, running and throw-
ing rival his hitting as benefits to
the Giants, first in New York and
then in San Francisco.
"I won't push," Willie says. "If
I'm tired, I'll take the day off and
concentrate on the next three or
four. I want to have fun and not
think of baseball as a job."

While Mays is having fun, he be-
labors the opposition and there can
be no doubt of his concentration.
Going into 1971 he has 3,065 hits,
1,921 runs, 1,795 RBI, 5,695 total
bases and 1,239 extra-base hits. In
the latter he ranks behind only
Stan Musial's 1,377 and Ruth's
Asked if he were satisfied, Mays
replied, "I never worried about it.
Maybe I will when I retire. Right
now I'm looking for today. To-
morrow will take care of itself."
