in Pontiac
PONTIAC, Mich. ()-Gram-
bling College, noted for sending
flocks of players to the National
Football League, has offered the
Pontiac Stadium Authority a
10-year contract to play a na-
tionally televised game each year
in the city's proposed stadium.
William Clay Ford, owner of
the NFL Detroit Lions, has al-
ready committed his team to
'v play at Pontiac if the city is
able to build a stadium by 1974.
Negotiations are underway
with an auto firm to sponsor
the Grambling TV games. The
Louisiana college of 3,600 stu-
dents played a 10 game schedule
last season in major metropol-
m tan areas throughout the coun-
try, drawing between 20,000 to
60,000 each game.

Grambling has agreed to play
Eastern Michigan University in
the proposed Pontiac Stadium
in 1974. There was also a pro-
posal that if the stadium is
covered a major bowl would be
held there feating the' nation's
top Negro college football team
as host.

Look Ma, I can fly!
Action in yesterday's first rocnd of the NCAA College Baseball

game. Earlier, Harvard dumped Brigham Young, 4-1.

NEW YORK (') - Johnny
Bench, Cincinnati's super catch-
er, and venerable sluggers Hank
Aaron of Atlanta and Willie
Mays of San Francisco are the

player last season, received 69,-
506 of the 110,000 votes cast by
fans to lead all players in the
first week's balloting, according

Commissioner Bowie Kuhn.
Aaron, 37, and the 40-year-
old Mays also received more
than 60,000 votes each to set
Stars' Daniels
collapses at
court hearing
Stars' owner Bill Daniels was
hospitalized yesterday after col-
lapsing during a recess in a
court hearing on a contract dis-
pute with Coach Bill Sharman.
Witnesses said Daniels, who
had been on the stand all day,
was about to return to the court-
r o o m for cross - examination
when he became ill.
A Stars' spokesman said Dan-
iels, reported in good condition,
had taken an antibiotic for an
allergy and that his illness ap-
parently was caused by some-
thing he ate for lunch. A wit-
ness said he started sneezing
violently and had to lie down.
Daniels, infthe morning ses-
sion, had testified that two key
clauses in Sharman's contract
-an option to buy 5 per cent of
the team and a pension plan-
have not been put into effect.
But, Daniels said, he had been
trying to iron out the problems
before Sharman announced he
wanted to quit to become coach
of the Los Angeles Lakers.
Daniels, a Denver cable TV
executive, filed a $5 million suit
last week and obtained a tem-
porary restraining order pre-
venting Sharman from coach-
ing any team except the Stars.

one aboard earlier in the inning.
Padres nip Phillies
stroked a sacrifice fly in the
second inning and Clarence Gas-
ton drilled a run-scoring single
in the third as the San Diego
Padres, held to two hits by Phil-
adelphia's Barry Lersch, nipped
the Phillies 2-1 last night.
A streak of wildness in the

walked Nate Colbert and Ollie
Brown with none out before
Ivan Murrell tapped into a force
at second as Colbert took third
and Spiezio delivered his sacri-
fice fly to center.
In the third, second baseman

Women's Lib hits Le Mans raceway

LE MANS, France (P) - The
favored Porsche will meet a
strong challenge from Ferrari
in the Le Mans 24-hour race
today, but the big talk around
the circuit is about a pretty
woman driver, Marie Claude
Miss Beaumont, 29, French fe-
male rally champion, will be the
first woman in 20 years to quali-

Major League Standings

fy for the speed and endurance
"I am not carrying the flag
for the feminine sex," she told
an interviewer. "I'm driving, sex
doesn't count; skill does."
At the wheel of a seven-liter
Chevrolet Corvette, Miss Beau-
mont and veteran French rally
champion Henri Greder have
little chance of winning.
They burned out one engine
in the first day of trials and
their qualifying time put them
far back on the grid for the In-
dianapolis-type running start at
11 a.m. this morning.
Favored among the 49 expect-
ed starters are the s e v e n
Porsche 917's, threatened by
nine Ferrari 512m models. The
Porsches generally made the
fastest trial times, being faster
on the straightaway.

But the crowd of perhaps
300,000 will be watching Miss
Beaumont. She knows it, and it
frightens her.
"A spin out in a rally goes un-
noticed," said the petite doe-
eyed honey blonde, "but the
slightest mistake here will make
big waves. I don't know why. It
scares me."
Daughter of a rally driving
auto dealer from Gap in the
Alps, Miss Beaumont dropped
her real family name, Charmas-
son, when she stopped rallying
the make of cars her father
sells. She has the looks of a
fashion model, is a skier, an ice
skater and a licensed water ski
"I know a lot of girls who can
drive as well as some of those
men out there on the track,"
she said. "Girls should have
their place here."
