ABA stars favor merger

DENVER (A' -- Willingness of
American Basketball Associa-
tion players to participate in a
May 28 all-star game against
the National Association does
not indicate opposition to the
merger of the two leagues, the
president of the ABA Players
Association said yesterday.
And unlike the NBA players
who said it didn't matter wheth-
er their bosses approved of the
game or not, their ABA oppon-
ents say they would welcome
such approval.
Larry Jones of the Floridians
and president of the ABA Play-
ers Association, s a i d Tuesday
that the g a m e in the Astro-
dome in Houston "should not in
any way be construed as a
game in defiance of our owners
or in particular a game being
played in opposition to the re-
cently announced merger."
"Although the ABA Players
Association has not as yet an-
nounced a formal position re-

garding the merger, I can as-
sure you that. there are many
players who are in favor of this
merger and strongly differ with
the anti-merger position taken
by Oscar Robertson."
Robertson, of the champion
Milwaukee Bucks and president
of the NBA players group, took
a swipe at the proposed merger
and the club owners who ap-
proved it when the game was
announced in New York a week
Robertson said that such a
game, barred by c lu b owners
until the leagues were united,
would prove that the ABA and
NBA could compete on the high-
est level without "an illegal
Also yesterday, Bill Russell,
former coach and star center of
the Boston Celtics, and Larry
Brown, Denver Rockets' play-
maker, were named coaches for
the proposed all-star game.
Russell will direct the NBA
team, Brown the ABA squad.

Doctor ends
vitamin tale
in athletics
Heavy doses of vitamins are use-
less to athletes, the University
of Wisconsin team physician
said yesterday at a symposium
on sports medicine.
Dr. Allen J. Ryan said he
knows of one football team in the
Southwest that gives each player
large doses of Vitamin B12 before
each game, at a cost of about $4
per dose.
"They complain about costs in
athletics. If they have a 45-man
traveling squad, then it costs
them $180 per game. And it is1
doing them absolutely no good,"
Ryan said. He did not name the
"Athletes and coaches gener-
ally speaking are bombarded
with information from commer-
cial companies that are anxious
to promote the sale of their
products which they advertise
as being specially enriched with
protein and vitamins.
"What they don't know is that
large quantities of protein taken
in the days immediately before
an athletic contest can actually
decrease the stores of energys
available to the athlete and that
the vitamins, particularly those
of the B complex, are not storedj
in the body and as a conse-
quence when they arb taken in
excess of the daily requirement
are simply passed off without be-
ing used." Ryan said.
An overdose of vitamins, Ryan
stressed, "is of absolutely no
help at all, although there are no
harmful effects from it."
