A rose..
... by any other name
What matters, of course, is not the name but the rose
itself-its color, its touch, its smell. Syndicated sports column-
ist Melvin Durslag, who appears in such journalistic abomi-
nations as TV Guide and The Sporting News as well as in
the Ann Arbor News, failed dismally in attempts to discredit
this theory in a mud-slinging column that appeared .in
yesterday's News.
The target of Durslag's abuse was the much-malign-
ed former (?) heavyweight champ Cassius Clay (Muham-
med Ali to some, but he now seems to prefer Clay).
Durslag claims that Clay is making 'hay' out of rejection,
raking money in hand over fist by making people feel sorry
for him.-
In a Agnewian assault on effetism, Durslag accuses Clay
of being 'shrewd,' as he feels the Olympic gold-medalist has
done very well under what some might consider adverse cir-
curstances. Sales of Clay's soon-to-be-released book. Durslag
argues, cannot be hurt by all this publicity.
One can only wonder what prompted Durslag to churn
ou this drivel in the first place. From reading his column, it
becomes obvious that Durslag has never ever gone to hear
Clay speak or even talked to the man. If he had, his opinion
might have been different, although I somehow doubt it.
I heard him give a speech and afterwards rap with
a group of kids at Michigan State this past winter, and
it was immediately apparent that he believed what he was
Although Durslag would have us believe that Clay's cool
is all a part of his sales pitch, I prefer to think that he is a
man who is sincere, a man who does not believe violence is
the final answer. There is no bitterness in his heart. It
would be easy to understand him if he did have hate in
his heart, but for a man like Durslag, someone who bears
suffering in silence is incomprehensible.
Clay will never stand among the ranks of super-
heroes, but perhaps he should. His stand in defiance of
the draft took a great deal of courage, as he had to know
he could never hope to win. He merely stood by his be-
liefs, and the World Boxing Association saw to it that
he paid the price, even though no final legal verdict has
been handed down on his case.
Durslag, like too many other sportswriters, is a house
man, someone who wouldn't dream of espousing an unpopular
cause for fear he might offend one of the hands that feeds
him. His column is sprinkled with unsubstantiated innuen-
does, designed only to lick the boots of the sports establish-
ment that feels athletes should be seen and not heard.

WASHINGTON (M) - Threatening
winds of a tropical storm yesterday forc-
ed the Navy to postpone today's
departure of a nerve gas shipment to be
scuttled on the Atlantic ocean bottom.
A Navy spokesman said the-departure
was delayed at least 24 hours until
tomorrow. He said weather observers
would continue to watch the storm and
there was the possibility of an even
later postponement.
Longshoreman completed loading the
418 vaults of obsolete Army nerve gas
aboard the rusting Liberty ship last
night, and tugs had planned to~ s t a r t
towing it into the Atlantic Ocean early
Capt. A. G. Hamilton, commander of
the sea phase of the operation, said he
would not take the Liberty ship and its
cargo of gas out of port at Sunny Point,,
N.C., until the U.S. Weather B u r e a u
gave him a prediction of 96 hours of
good weather.
Earlier yesterday the U.S. Court of
Appeals announced it would hear testi-.
mony Monday to determine whether the
Army should be halted in its plan to
dump 2,657 tons of the lethal gas into the
sea 280 miles off the Florida coast.

The order came upon a petition by
conservation forces seeking to override
a lower court's refusal earlier in the day
to prohibit the disposal of the 418 con-
crete coffins containing the gas.
However, the effect of the appellate
court's order was inconclusive in that
it did not bind the Army and the Defense
Although the lower court ruling, is-
sued by U.S. District Judge June L.
Green, rejected a petition for a tem-
porary-restraining order, the judge voiced
an "urgent request" that the Army con-
sider another site for the disposal in some
area where the water is shallower than
the 16,000-foot depth selected, about
282 miles east of Florida.
There was no immediate indication
of what the army or the Defense De-
partment would do with the unwanted
liquefied nerve gas now being loaded
aboard an old ship hulk and ready to be.
towed to the resignated ocean burying
Longshoremen at Sunny Point, N.C.,
were nearly finished transferring the 418
valuts to an old Liberty ship.
However, the journey could be delayed
by the weather.

A tropical depression described by the
Weather Bureau as dangerous was mov-
ing in the general direction of the dump
area northeast of the Bahamas.
Hamilton said the weather was being
watched closely. "We will not leave port
until we have a 96-hour prediction of
good weather," he said.
The court fight to prevent dumping of
the gas off Florida was brought by Gov.
Claude Kirk of Florida and a New York-
based conservationist group, the En-
vironmental Defense Fund.
Judge Green said she had serious mis-
givings about the site selected by t h e
Army. She noted testimony at a day-
long hearing Thursday that this would
be the first time the Army had sunk
lethal chemicals in waters of such great
Judge Green'said the pressure at such
depths posed the danger of a sudden
and simultaneous crushing of all the
concrete containers, releasing all the gas
at once.
Two years ago, she noted, the Army
disposed of some gas in 7,000 feet of
water off New Jersey and subsequent
checks by Navy scientists showed no de-
tectable harm to marine life there.
