The "sold out sign" is up for the
Ohio State-Michigan football game
(scheduled Nov. 22 in Michigan Sta-
dium) for everyone except season
ticket buyers.
Michigan ticket manager Al Ren-
frew said, "We have cut off individ-
ual ticket sales for the OSU-Michigan
game because of the heavy demand
for season tickets. Rights now we
are running 52 per cent ahead of sea-
son ticket sales last year." Michigan
averaged more than 93,000 per game
last year.
Renfrew said, "We have to hold back
tickets to accommodate the fans who
are buying season tickets. This is the
earliest cutoff date for an Ohio State
game that I can remember."

brink of elimination.
The Pacers thus trailed the Co-
lonels 3-0 going into last night's con-
test.
Last Thursday night at Louisville,
the Colonels won 95-93 when referee
Ed Rush disallowed a desperation
three-point basket by Indiana's Billy
Keller, which would have won it for
the Pacers, 96-95.
Rush contended that time had run
out before Keller's basket.
Ali shuffles
NEW YORK ()--World heavyweight
champion Muhammad Ali and movie
director William Friedkin led a fund
raising rally here yesterday in a step-
ped-up attempt to get a new trial for
former b o x e r Rubin "Hurricane"
Carter.
Carter, a leading middleweight
contender when he and a companion
were arrested and convicted of mur-
dering three whites in a Paterson,
N.J., bar in June 1966, in serving a

life sentence.
Last December, appeals by Carter
and his co-defendant, John Artis, for
a new trial were denied by Superior
Court Judge Samuel A. Larner, the
same judge who originally sentenced
both men.
Dope note
DALLAS (R) - Dave Smith, Southern
Methodist University's football coach,
says he used a lie-detector test to pur-
sue questions of drug use among his
athletes after he learned such a test
"was one means employed at another
university.",
Two players have been suspended
from the team and both claim their
suspension was a result of refusal to
take a polygraph (lie detector) test.
Smith and SMU athletic director Dick
Davis said one of the players was
suspended because of his grades.
Published accounts here Sunday and
Monday say three athletes were in-
volved in the polygraph test issue, but
only one player actually took such a
test. Of the player who took the test,

Davis said, "to the best of my knowl-
edge, he cleared himself."

Namath waffles
BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (P)-The owner
of the World Football League's Chicago
franchise planned his first face-to-face
meeting with Joe Namath late last
night. The president of the league said
it would know by today if the cele-
brated free-agent quarterback will join
the WFL.
However, Chris Hemmeter, the
WFL owner, cautioned that it would
be sometime after today before the
public knows if Namath has opted
for the Chicago Winds and a reported
$4-million contract t h a t includes
$100,000 yearly for the next two
decades rather than return to the
New York Knicks of the National
Football League or just retire from
football.
Last night's meeting at Tuscaloosa
was to be private. No details were to
be disclosed.

Michigan's track team got off
to a running start last Friday
at the Big Ten Championship
meet at Iowa by qualifying in
every event. In Saturday's fin-
als, it fell flat on its face.
After winding up the first day
of competition with a respect-
able 12 team points behind pow-
erful Indiana (33) and Illinois
(26), the Wolverines faltered,
