King triumphs in 'battle of sexes'
(Continued from Page 1)t
Entering the arena to a reaction!
of boos and cheers, Riggs playedt
the first several games in a warm-
up jacket emblazoned with "Sugar
Daddy" on the back. But he quick-f
ly discarded it as King began her;
BY THE END of the match
Riggs appeared deeply fatigued
and rubber legged-merely a shell'
of the man who clobbered Court'
on Mother's Day.
The puckish little man, who had
occasion to remark women should1
be kept barefoot and pregnant]
seemed a tragic figure at the con-
test's merciful conclusion as he
fell victim to slam-bam tactics
that left him dazed.
After taking a few minutes to
pick up the pieces of his shattered
ego, the all time hustler came
back undaunted-vowing to take
up golf against the females.
"MAYBE I will take on the golf-
ers," he remarked. "I hit the ball
about the way a woman does."
The Houston crowd represented
the largest audience to ever see a
tennis match and over 35 million
A circus-like atmosphere per-
vaded the match as four well mus-
cled young men carried King to the
playing court on a Cleopatraesque
litter. Not to be outdone Riggs ap-
peared in a rickshaw pulled by
eight well-endowed women clad
in red shorts.
Although each of the combatants
had his or her own rooting section,
the racous crowd as a whole seem-
ed to be pulling for the libber to
trounce the lobber.
While the match probably prov-
membered forever in the annals
of the athletic absurd. And like-
wise Riggs has been perserved in
legend like the boy who cried wolf
as a person whose mouth got the
better of him.
ON THE contrary King has
reached the zenith of her glory by
knocking off the male supremists'
high priest. Yet the match may be
an inescapable albatross. Twenty
years from now King won't be hail-
ed the winner of incredible vic-
tories at Forrest Hills and Wim-
bleton but the woman who put that
self rightous sexist Riggs in his
place - the loser's locker room.

members indicated last night that
they would seek answers from the
police chief on marijuana law en-
forcement policies, and from the
University's chief executive on
such matters as tuition hikes and
changes in residency rules.
SGC also voted last night to re-
establish a meat co-op at an un-
specified time in the future. Last
year's similar attempt appeared
to fail for lack of student interest.
