Ervin nixs Commission

WASHINGTON {A) - Sen. Sam
Ervin said Friday that Congress
should free all professional
sports team owners to take their
team.s anywhere and free play-
ers to strike any deal they want.
The North Carolina Democrat
testified hefore a Senate com-
merce subcommittee against a
bill which would create a Fed-
eral Sports Commission, He
said such an agency "Could stag-
nate professional sports and in-
stitutionalize many of the bar-
barian player-management prac-

tices which now exist throughout
the sports system."
National Football League Com-
missioner Pete Rozelle and Na-
tional Hockey League President
Clarence Campbell also testified.
They added their names to the
list of major sports figures gen-
erally opposed to the commission
idea.
"I have concluded that pro-
fessional. football is the m o s t
over-supervised,. over-examined.
and over-regulated business in
America today," Rozelle said.

If football cannot solve i t s
own problems regarding fans,
television, players, stadium au
thorities he said, "the sport it-
self will bear the penalty."
Ervin opposes another bill
which would allow the merger of
the American and National Bas-
ketball Associations. He said it
would create another monopoly
similar to baseball anddfootball
with their common diaft o
players and reserve-type claus-
es which bind a player to one
team.
The draft and the clause should
be specifically outlawed, Ervin
said.
"Piratis is as American as
apple-pie," Ervin said, it that
means one basketball player can
jump to another league after
completing his contract. The
contract should be observed by
the player, however, he said.
The commission would siper-
vise terms at drafting amateir
athletes, televising of games
and franchise transfers from one
city to another.
Hut, Ervin went on in refer-
ring to franchise transfers, "if
one city loses a team, another
gets one." Spots is a business,
he said, and should he treated
like all the others.

SAN FRANCISCO (M.')- A fed-

the Golden State Warriors of
the National Basketball Associa-

junction which prohibits Barry, a
star with the New York Nets

sociation, from playing for any
team except the Warriors.

The ruling is the latest in a
services of Barry.
Judge Zirpoli ruled that Bar-
ry's contract with the Warriors
is binding and valid and that
the Warriors would suffer "irre-
parable and permanent injuries"
unless Barry plays for the NBA
team.
Barry signed a five-year, $1-
million contract with the War-
riors in 1969, which said he would
return when his ABA commit-
ments ended.
But he also signed a new ABA
contract in 1970 with the Nets,
which contained the phrase "
subject to such legally binding
obligations as Barry may now
have with the Warriors."
Meanwhile in St. Paul, Minn. a
news conference has been ten-
tatively scheduled for Tuesday

ed $1.5 million in Winnipeg. Man.

A & D AUDITORIUM
(on Monroe, between
Haven and Toppon)

All by itself, this innocuous square of paper hardly
seems important., But every week about 170,000
pounds of newsprint comes into Ann Arbor as news-
papers or to be made into newspapers. Well-packed,
that would make a square pile 20 feet on a side and
10 feet tall, solid newsprint. After the news is read,
the paper is buried and both are forgotten. But the
pile of old newsprint will grow until it no longer can
be ignored.

Fortunately, there is a solution. Old newsprint can
be recycled and made into paper products, thus
sparing the landscape and trees that would other-
wise have been cut. In Ann Arbor the Ecology
Center has a recycling station on South Industrial
Highway, off Stadium, just south of the Coca-Cola
bottlers. It's open from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Wednes-
day thru Saturday. For more information, you can
call the Ecology Center at 761-3186.
