Cassius
CHARLESTON, S.C. (P)-For-Cassius
Clay, nothing has changed . . . and noth-
ing is the same
The former heavyweight champion of
the world came to Charleston to fight
again for the first time in 21/2 years. The
only sparring he did, however, was with
youngsters who had thronged outside his
motel.
It was the old Cassius Clay who stroke
into the street where it looked like a truck
fillled with children had overturned and
spilled its load. He picked out a youngster
and playfully began sparring with him.
The crowd began to call the young
black kid Joe Frazier, the new heavy-
weight champion of the world. All of a
sudden Clay stopped; stepped back and
looked at the boy and said:
"I've got speed and I've got endurance.
"And if I meet Joe he's going to need
insurance."
The boys and girls liked that. They went

All the reporters agreed with one who
said of Cassius: "A hell of a nice fellow.

As Cassius left town, only a reporter,
a phographer and three other people were
with him at the airport. No one forced
him to leave.
The feeling was that he came to Char-
leston as a champion - and he left as
a champion.

Dalton Jones hit a grand slam
pinch hit single into the upper
deck in right field in the sev-
enth inning to lift the Detroit
Tigers to a 7-3 victory over
Boston last night.
The improbable-sounding play
came about when Jones passed
Don Wert while circling the
bases after hitting what ap-
peared to be a home run. Ac-
cording to the rules, Jones was
automatically out as soon as he
passed Wert between first and

day.
Williams also held firm on the
idea that Lombardi will be on
hand for the offigial opening of
the Redskins training camp
July 19.
Lombardi underwent an oper-
ation June 27 during which a

The rhubarb developed after
Boston starter Ken Nagy yield-

sixth to tie the game at 3-3.
After the fourth walk, Nagy and
catcher Jerry Moses complained
bitterly to Rice, and the Boston
bench soon joined in the pro-
test. Nagy and Moses were both
ejected and reserve George
Thomas also got the thumb
after bumping an umpire.
The rest of the Boston bench
was banished to the clubhouse
by Rice, and could only come
back onto the field if they were
to play in the game.
Boston got a 1-0 lead off Den-
ny McLain on a lead-off home
run by Dick Schofield, but the
Tigers went ahead in the third
on a two-run double by Jim
Northrup. Boston went back
ahead 3-2 with help from an
error by Norm Cash, setting the
stage for the hectic finish.
Gary Wagner, who replaced
Nagy, gave up a single to Elliot
Maddox to open the seventh,
and then yielded walks to Cash
and Wert. Jones then came in
to pinch-hit for Jim Price and
unloaded his flukish hit.

DETROIT UP)-Terry Driscoll,
a 6-7 former Boston_ College
star, signed a three-year con-
tract for a reported $100,000 a
season yesterday with the De-

Basketball Association.
Driscoll, who averaged 18.5
points a game as a center in
college, was the Pistons' No. 1
draft choice in 1969, but elected
to play in Italy last winter, av-
eraging 23 points for Bologna.
Neither Detroit General Man-
ager Ed Coil nor Bob Woolf,
Driscoll's Boston attorney, would
disclose exact figures of the
contract, but most observers
guessed $100,000 per year.

NFL players group
seeks camp boycott
DALLAS, Tex. UP) - The National Football League Players
Association sent special delivery letters to its members yesterday
ordering them not to report to training camps until further notice.
And at least two defensive stalwarts for the Dallas Cowboys,
tackle Jethro Pugh, and defensive back Mel Renfro, say they'll go
along with the holdout.
The letter, signed by FLPA president John Mackey, was mailed
to all players Wednesday night following lengthy negotiations in
New York between player representatives and owners.
"Yeah, I just got the letter but I haven't had a chance to read
it yet," Pugh said yesterday afternoon. After reading through the
letter, Pugh said he'd rather not comment on it except to say he
would honor the order.
"And I think the Cowboys will be behind it 100 per cent," Pugh
said, "although I can only speak for myself."
The letter indicated that several outstanding issues had been
settled, but others, including pension benefits, still remained in doubt,
Renfro said last night he had not received his letter but planned
to honor it.
"I've just changed my address and I imagine my letter has been
delayed," he said. "But I'll honor it when it gets here because I am
with the association 100 per cent. Whatever they decide, I'll go
along with."
Earlier this week, NFL Commissioner Pete Rozelle ordered the
start of training camps moved back to next Tuesday while committees
try to work out their differences.

He comes to your door carrying a
briefcase under his arm so he'll look like
an opinion-taker. (If he carried it by
the handle he would look like a sales-
man.) If you go along with the adver-
tising plan which he presents, you end
up with a 24-volume Collier's Encyclope-
dia, a set of Harvard Classics, a set of
Collier's Junior Classics, and a cheap
bookshelf. He ends up with $552.68.
And the whole transaction is not a
sale, mind you, it is an advertising pro-
gram. The money you paid is for certain
"up-to-date" services, not the books.
Encyclopedia companies in general
are notorious for their deceptive door-
to-door sales techniques, and according
to lawyers with the Federal Trade Com-
sion (FTC), Collier is one of the worst.
The basic Collier sales technique
which has aroused the ire of the FTC
is that Collier salesmen say they are
not selling anything. They only "place"
encyclopedias in homes as advertising
promotion in exchange for a testimonial
letter and permission to use it. The
charge to the "advertising family" is for
certain "up-to-date" services which go
along with the encyclopedias.

ly selling their encyclopedias, and has

been suing the company for
