WASHINGTON (AP) - The
Supreme Court was asked yes-
terday to allow Muhammed All
to go to Canada to fight Joe
Frazier, but the former heavy-
weight champion washed his
hands of the effort.
"That's my lawyer talking
and he's going to be fired for
doing these things," Ali said in
Philadelphia when word of the
legal move reached him.
"I don't want to fight under
forced conditions," he told news-
men.
Ali is free on bail while he
appeals a 1967 conviction for re-
fusing Army induction. One of
the terms is that he may not
leave the country.
The ex-champion's No. 1 law-
yer, Chauncey Eskridge of Chi-
cago, asked the court to give
Ali up to 18 hours in Toronto to
fight Frazier, who now holds the
crown.
Eskridge said the court could
pack Ali's car with U.S. mar-
shals and that 70 per cent of
the proceeds, perhaps $1 mil-

lion, could be held in escrow for
Ali's return.
The application, made to Jus-
tice Hugo L. Black, said Ali is
broke and needs the money for
alimony, to keep in fighting
shape and to pay legal bills.
In Philadelphia, Ali said he
does not support the plea., "I
don't know anything about it,"
he told reporters.
"When a lawyer files an ap-
plication in this court he doesn't
always talk to his client," Es-
kridge told a reporter by tele-
phone from Chicago.
"When I made the applica-
tion I did so because I had an
offer for a fight in Canada. I
have permission from the Ca-
nadian authorities. They will,
sanction the fight.
"If the application is granted
that is time he will have a
chance to say whether he will
fight."
Eskridge said Ali was "per-
fectly right. He hasn't author-
ized it. I did it on my own."
The lawyer agreed that if Ali
formally disavows the applica-

tion for freedom to travel the
issue will be dead legally.
Ali was stripped of his box-
ing title by the World Boxing
Association and New York state
when he was indicted. He has
said several times he does not
intend to fight again.
Last month the U.S. Circuit
Court in New Orleans denied
the request by Ali's lawyers for
permission to go to Canada to
fight.
Shortly after his conviction a
federal district court rejected an
earlier request by Ali to make a
30-day boxing tour of Japan.
IOWA CITY (P)-The NCAA
and the Big Ten announced
yesterday that they are con-
ducting a probe of the Athletic
Department at the University
of Iowa in relation to the re-
cruitment and financial assist-
ance of athletes.
Athletic Board chairman Sam
Fahr said that the university;
would fully cooperate with the
investigation, which will look
primarily at the football pro-
gram at Iowa.

Garrett. makes it official
he'll play for the Dodgers
NEW YORK (AP) - Mike Garrett, at the height of his career as
a star running back for the Kansas City Chiefs, formally announc-
ed his retirement from pro football yesterday because "I just want
to try something else" - baseball.
The 26-year-old member of the Super Bowl champion Chiefs
confirmed that he would play out the final year of his reported -
$450,000, five-year contract with Kansas City next season, and
then turn to baseball.
Garrett, 5-foot-9, 200 pounds, had talked about quitting for
some time when his present pact ran out, and he let it be known
last Friday after baseball's Los Angeles Dodgers picked him in the
free agent draft that the time had come.
"I'm not tired of football. I love it," he said. "I just want to
try something else. It's not an achievement. I just always wanted
to play for the Dodgers."
He shrugged off any idea that his retirement might be a ploy
to coax more money out of the Chiefs, or to get himself traded to
a football team nearer his Los Angeles home.
"I'm not talking about money. This is not a money decision,"
he emphasized. "If money was the problem, I'd stay in football.
"I know some people have used this as a way of bargaining,
but if I wanted more money, I would just ask for it.I

Player on apartheid *

CURT FLOOD SUIT

Baseball wraps up case

M 0

. . . a contradictory cavalier
Probably no athlete in the world, either amateur or pro-
fessional, faces more problems than South African golfer Gary
Player. As his nation's most prominent sports figure, Player has
frequently been the target of both physical and verbal abuse.
In his tournament appearances this year, Player has been con-
stantly guarded by uniformed and plain-clothesed security men.
Despite the distractions and pressures which accompany him
wherever he plays, Player has amassed $88,000 on this year's
tour.
Up until recently, Player has remained mum on South Af-
rica's apartheid policy of excluding native non-whites from its
sports teams as well as its practice to deny visas to non-whites
desiring to compete in South Africa. But now, he has begun to
speak out in defense of his nation while admitting the need for
some changes.
Player feels that South Africa is the best country in the
world in which to live, arguing that the country is free from
racial and campus disorders, and that law and order still pre-
vail.
"What's more," he contends, "I think we have a great-
er love for and understanding of the non-white people in
this country (South Africa) than they have in America for
their Negroes. If it's a matter of sacrificing our country for
sport, we must sacrifice sport."
This would, he admits, be a tragedy, for Player as much
as anyone is aware of the personal as well as financial rewards
available to the athlete. As a professional, free from all the
sanctions imposed on South Africa by international amateur
sports, any loss of competitive opportunities he might suffer
would come only from personal choice. But he is not insensitive
to all the problems apartheid has brought him and his nation.
"Basically, what I'm trying to say is that if we want to
compete with the rest of the world as it is thinking now, we
will have to comply with the way they are thinking," Play-
er contends. "We will have to make some changes. What
they are I don't know. This is where the government will
have to make the decision."
Player's arguments make him sound almost like an ante-
bellum southern gentleman, cavalier in his outlook on life and
paternal towards the blacks.
Player seems to feel that because there are no riots or
revolts in South Africa, everyone must be happy. Yet unrest
is not the only barometer of discontent. After Nat Turner's
revolt in 1831, there were no more slave uprisings in this
country. Was this because slaves suddenly became content
with their lot? Or was it because slavery became so harsh
and repressive that any concerted action became impos-
sible? The answer is obvious.
To justify their peculiar institution and defend it from
ever more vociferous attacks from abolitionists, southerners
ceased to despair the evils of slavery and began to defend it as
a positive good. South Africa has followed the salve pattern,
becoming more passionate in its defense of apartheid as in-
ternational criticism has increased.
Player's reference to the racism in America, painfully true
though it is, is irrevelent to any defense of apartheid. Whatever
love the South African may have for non-whites is primarily
a paternal one. It is a love that shelters the child but a love
that will eventually crush anyone who seeks his own identity.
This is the tragedy of South Africa. However, most South Af-
ricans, including Gary Player, cannot understand it. It is ironic
and in some ways appropriate that Player wears black when
playing golf.

NEW YORK (IP) - The defense complete
case in Curt Flood's $3 million antitrust
against baseball yesterday when an economist

$19,500 in 1965 to $38,376 in 1970.

MINEOLA, N.Y. (P) - The Nassau Co
Grand Jury decided yesterday the death of h
ey goalie Terry Sawchuk after a fracas with
York Ranger teammate Ron Stewart was "
pletely accidental" and declined to indict S
art.
Dist. Atty. William A. Cahn, who rep(
the grand jury's findings, said both Sawchuk
Stewart were drinking in a bar when an a
ment over the cleaning of their rented h
started and they "may have been slightly in
cated."
Cahn said the case was "closed . . . so fa
any further criminal investigation by this o
is concerned."
He said that 36 hours of testimony be
the grand jury by nine witnesses, including S
art, disclosed that it was "mainly a verbal a
ment and while a lot of pushing and shoving
place at the bar and the home and although
blows may have been attempted, none was str
by either Stewart or Sawchuk.
The argument took place April 29 and the
year-old Sawchuk, after a fall at the house,
admitted to Long B e a c h Memorial Hos
where he underwent surgery for
removal of his g a11 bladder. ~{:'*a
Several weeks later, he w a s
transferred to a New York City
hospital, where he died May 31
of a pulmonary embolism. AM
Cahn said that after Saw-
chuk and Stewart, 37, had words
in a Long Beach bar, "the ar- New Yore
gument continued at the home Boston

suit peared for the Flood side, and said the reverse
tes- system "tended to depress wage levels because
from there is no opportunity to negotiate."
Dr. Clark said salaries increased at a reason-
econ- able level, within the structure of the reserve sys-
Cam- tem, and the pay of established players increased
net substantially. He said the elimination of the re-
12.5 serve system would result in "the stronger teams
getting stronger and the weaker teams getting
testi- weaker." He said the same results were to be ex-
pected in the case of most modifications that had
been suggested during the three previous weeks
of the trial.
Jay Topkis, acting for the absent Flood in the
absence of Arthur Goldberg, his chief counsel,
cross examined Dr. Clark who said "a player, to-
ward the end perhaps after 15 years might have
something to s a y" about rejecting a proposed
trade.
ounty The cross examination of Dr. Clark will con-
hock- tinue Tuesday. Rebuttal witnesses to be called by
New Flood include Marvin Miller, executive director
com- of the Major League Baseball Players Associa-
Stew- tion, and Dick Moss, the nation's counsel. Bill
Veeck, former big league clubowner who now op-
orted erates a New England race track, will be the last

Workmen, surrounded by piles of litter, pull down the roof of the Michigan Union Grill (the MUG)

in September, because of money shortage textbooks will not be sold until the winter term.

The Michigan Union Grill

past several years, will be the
home of the University book-
store.
Last week, workmen b e g a n

MUG to accommodate the
bookstore, a task which is ex-

one month later as students be-
gin to trickle back onto campus.
However, the store will not
begin to sell textbooks until the
winter term, according to
Thomas Brown, assistant direc-
tor of student-community rela-
tions.
Brown, a member of the stu-
dent - faculty - administration
board which will run the book-
store, attributes the delay in
textbooks sales to the lack of
the capital necessary for the
textbook purchases.
In addition, Brown says, the
manager for the store is not
expected to a r r i v e until late
July, "a month and a half after
the textbook orders should have
been in."
When they are finally placed
on sale, textbooks may be sold
at their normal retail price,

Brown adds, at least until the
fall term, 1971.tHe explains that
the Regents stipulated that the
textbooks could not be sold at
a discount of more than a one
per cent for the first year, a
benefit which Brown says is too
small to compensate for the cost
of marking the discounts on the
books.

in mid-April.
And on May 15, the Univer-

bookstore board, which was in
line with the plan adopted by
the Regents last October, after
