Muhammed Ali takes calrmly
conscientious objectors ruling

ATLANTA (MP-An attorney
for Muhammed Ali, formerly
Cassius Clay, said yesterday the
ex-heavyweight boxing cham-
pion may win draft status as a
conscientious objector on the
strength of a recent Supreme
Court decision.
The Supreme Court exempted
Monday from military service
all young men who oppose war
on strong ethical or moral
grounds, even if this opposition
is not based on religious belief.
Ali had asked to be classified
as a conscientious objector be-
cause of membership in the
Black Muslim faith.
Robert Bolt, an attorney for
the American Civil Liberties
Union, which is defending Ali,
said that an earlier decision by
the U.S. Court of Appeals aid
not doubt Ali's sincerity in his

objection to war, but instead
said the court felt that Black
Muslims were primarily a polit-
ical and racial rather than reli-
gious organization.
Bolt said the court's latest de-
cision could end the litigation.
Clay, however, took the news
calmly. He played down the no-
tion that he's been denied any
"You're free," Clay said,
"when your conscience is free.
You can be locked up in a cell
and be a free man, you know
that, Brother, I've been free all
Clay, who was stripped of his
boxing title when he refused in-
duction, said, "I'm ready for
the worse. If they want to lock
me in jail, they can lock me in
jail. I'm not fleeing the country

or burning my draft card. I've
been working with the law, I
wish they'd hurry up and decide
whether I'm right or wrong."
Clay's attorney, Chauncey
Eskridge, said from Chicago,
after the Supreme Court deci-
sion was announced Monday
that he was encouraged by the
"Our first move will be to ask
the court to reconsider its for-
mer opinion in light of this re-
cent opinion."
Clay has been convicted of
evading the draft and is free
pending an appeal.

Lain gets nervous when he
thinks of his July 1 return to
"Tiger Stadium is sold out,"
he says, "and I hope most of
them will be cheering instead of

McLain is entering the final
two weeks of his suspension by
baseball commissioner Bowie
Kuhn for associating with un-
savory characters. He's phy ;i-
cally sound and claims to have
learned a lesson. ,
"This case is closed as of July
1," said McLain at his upper
middle class Lakeland home.
"You might say I'm being born
again. I have profited much by
this mistake."

DETROIT (/P)-Mike Kilken-

nearly a month, pitched a four-
hitter as theDetroit Tigers beat
the Oakland A's 5-1 last night.
Kilkenny, 3-1, allowed only a

innings and then the game was
delayed 51 minutes by rain. He
came back apparently unaf-
fected by the layoff and hurled
three-hit ball the rest of the
way, striking out 11.
Joe Rudi ruined Kilkenny's
shutout bid by doubling home
Bert Campaneris, who walked
with two out in the eighth.
