Horton

By The Associated Press
DETROIT - Detroit's Willie
Horton was ejected from the
game following a fourth-inning
brawl in which both benches
cleared, then California broke
loose for five runs in the fifth
inning and beat the Tigers 14-7
last night in the wild first game
of a doubleheader.
The start of the game was de-
layed 34 minutes by rain, there
was a 30-minute rain delay in
the third inning, then the ten-
sion-filled scuffle delayed the
game another 20 mnutes.
The melee began when Angels
pitcher Frank Tanana nearly
hit designated hitter Horton.

I just can't bear to look !
CALIFORNIA ANGEL catcher, Ellie Rodriguez seems to be anticipating a knockout blow from
Tiger Willie Horton in a brawl at Detroit last night. Horton, brushed back by a pitch in the first
inning, was hit on the fist in the fourth, starting the dugout emptying brawl. California scored
five runs in the next inning.

Remembering Pre

SPORTS OF THE DAILY

(Continued from Page11)
for him: "I want him to im-
prove 10 per cent over each of
the next ten years." When Pre-
fontaine died he was still im-
proving, yet he was destined to
always remain on the thresh-
hold of greatness. He never held
any world records, and he never
won the gold medal. Had he
lived, he certainly would have
done both.
On the night after Prefon-
taine died I was laying awake
listening to a talk show on alco-
holism. Then, when the news
came on, they said that by
Oregon state laws Pre was
drunk when he died. The per-
centage of alcohol in his blood
was .16. I got up and had a
drink.
After meets that we won we
used to go down to little Italy.
People said that they would sell
beer to kindergarteners. I
would buy because I had long
sideburns and a rather inaus-
picious mustache that I thought
made me look like Steve Pre-
fontaine. The man would ask me
whether I was 18 or 21, and 1
said I was 21 because I was 16.
The beer was cold and wet on
my hot dry throat, and I felt
on top of the world after two or

three.
When I knew I was going
to win a race I would wave to
the stands to tell them I was
going to kick. Then I would
say, goodbye to the runner
next to me. By the time I
hit the tape my arms were
waving and I was smiles all
over. Nothing in my life has
made me feel so happy.
All of this made me a lot of
enemies, and after I got killed
in the district meet I decided
I wasn't quite good enough for
stints like that.
On the day that Steve Prefon-
taine died, that part of me that
emulated him died too. Though
I had long since given up run-
ning, I had still dreamed about
it. But not anymore. Because
it seemed to me that Pre, the
greatest of all, had just been
running in circles like the rest
of us.
Unless in that last lonely mo-
ment, after running so many
thousands of miles alone, as his
body was once again taken from
the control of his audacious,
punishing spirit, he had looked
and to the right in desperation
for a place where the king is
but as the beggar. And found
it.

Women sport
adopt athlettic
By The Associated Press
NEW YORK-A group of prominent women
sports personalities have adopted a 10-point
"Bill of Rights" demanding "our equal share
in a more equitable sports world."
The resolution calls for a restructuring of
ruling sports bodies, such as the International
Olympic Committee, the International Lawn
Tennis Federation and the various athletic fed-
erations which rule world sports. It demands
equal representation for women on such bodies,
as well as on boards which pick Hall of Fame
honorees in various sports.
The resolution goes further to ask that the
print media-give proper recognition to wo-
men and that the TV media judge the com-
petence of women "rather than hiring on
the basis of good looks."
Gladys Heldman of Houston, founder of
World Tennis Magazine, and mother of pro
tennis player Julie Heldman, was one of the
women instrumental in drawing up the paper.
Heldman and 10 other women were brought
together as sports consultants for the U.S.
Center on the International Women's Year and
the State Department.

lence on Coach Dick Perry's fencing team.
Most women don't like cigars, anyway.
Perry's University of Michigan-Dearborn
fencing squad is the first in the state to in-
corporate men and women on the varsity,
rather than have separate squads as is the
case at many schools, Perry said.
It may be one of the first in the country.
Perry coached the University of Detroit to
the National Collegiate Athletic Association
fencing championship in 1972. After reaching
that goal, he resigned his job in a dispute over
what he considered second-class treatment ot
the sport by U-D.
No race for Triple Crown winners
NEW YORK - There will be no Race of
Champions among the winners . of the three
Triple Crown events, a spokesman for Belmont
Park said yesterday.
The New York track had been interested in
matching Kentucky Derby winner Foolish Pleas-
ure, Preakness champion Master Derby, and
Avatar, winner of the Belmont Stakes, in a 11-
mile, $300,000 race.
But a Belmont spokesman said that Arthur
Seeligson, owner of Avatar, had decided that
his colt was not ready for that kind of test at
this time.
