WASHINGTON (A')-Rep. Robert Macdonald, chairman of the
House subcommittee on communications, says he's convinced
Congress will ban televised blackouts of home professional foot-
ball games which have been sold out.
Macdonald, a Massachusetts Democrat, said yesterday he
also intends to write his legislation to make the ban permanent
and not a one-year experiment as proposed in a bill sponsored by
Sen. John Pastore (D-R.I.). "We'll have it in time for the up-
coming season," said Macdonald after three days of hearings.
INDIANAPOLIS (A,) - Sixth-ranked heavyweight George
Chuvalo of Toronto will meet Mike Boswell of Youngstown, Ohio,
here on Aug. 24, it was announced yesterday.
Chuvalo, who has fought almost every big name in the
heavyweight division, and Boswell are scheduled for a 10-rounder
at the downtown Convention Center.
NEW YORK (1) - The American Basketball Association
trustees yesterday formally approved the sale of the Kentucky
Colonels franchise to Ms. John Brown of Louisville.
Brown bought 52 per cent, the controlling interest, in the
Colonels from a Cincinnati group several weeks ago.
Charles Finley gave a report to the trustees on the status
of the Memphis franchise. Further action by Finley on the fran-
chise is expected in a few days.
. Pigskin for beef
MINNEAPOLIS A)-With the beef situation what it is, a
suburban Minneapolis man figured a hind quarter of choice
aged beef cut to order was worth two season tickets to Minne-
sota Vikings games.
"It dawned on me," said Allan Sachs of Golden Valley,
"that someone would give up the tickets for some meat."
Sachs is president of Morton Sausage Co. but since it
doesn't normally handle choice meat, he's found a friend will-
ing to provide the hindquarter for him to trade for the National
Football League tickets.
The tickets cost $7 a game, or $126 for a pair of season
tickets. The beef, depending on its weight, would have a retail
cost of "more than $200, if you could get it," Sachs said.
