~~7IE~1pitch in All-Star encounter

MILWAUKEE (P)-The Ameri-
can League, seeking to end a
dozen years of All-Star frustra-

turned to his origial status.
"I'll be glad to be starting,"
said Blue, 'and I noticed that
the 1ast time he American
League won was when yursi
truly was the starting pitcher."
That was in 1971 hen the AL
beat the Nationals 6-4. It also
was the only American League
victory in the last dozen Alt-
Star games.

Carew of Minnesota, catcher

for the A's but elected to the
ontfield, will play left and bat
fifth, followed by third base-
man Graig Nettles of the Yan-
kees and Tenace, normally a
catcher but elected at first base.

Boands can only hit leadoff," said
.Alaton's lineup listed Cincin-
nati's Pete Rose, who has play-
ed third base but was elected
as an ont lelder, in right and
leading off. Los Brock of St.
Louis bats second in left field

end James Buckmon was found to have a hernia, and former
Wolverine defensive tackle Doug Troozak was found to be blind

have that show up is beyond me," North said.

Hockey League and, join the Minnesota Fighting Saint of the

another. Nothing has been consummated nor will there be until
the Boston Bruins become part of the negotiations," Watters told
The Associated Press.

HEW sex
By The Asseciated Press
Michigan Athletic Director Don Canham and
his counterpart at Michigan State, Burt Smith,
say they are reluctant to obey impending federal
so rts regulations banning sex discriminatin in
programs receiving federal funds.
Smith and Canham say their schotils already
provide women as much equal treatment as
they can afford.
Al issue are guidelines drawn up by the
Department of Health, Education and Wel-
fare, explaining what must he done to obey
Title IX of the 1972 Omnibus Education Act.
Adoption of the guidelines is set for next Mon-
day unless Congress disapproves them.
That's unlikely, based on congressmen's com-
ments made during recent hearings on the guide-
lines, committee votes on attempted amend-
ments and strong pressure from women's groups
in Washington. .
"I don't see how anyb dy can say you couldn't
have equal tenn teams," Canham said.
"They're out of their mind ifthey think men and .
women don't deserve equality between facili-
ties, coaches and everything else.
"But don't tell me I have to spend the
$800,000 on tennis that I pot into football which
hrings in $3 million," he said.
"We can't have equal scholarships and expen-
ditures for women's sports which have no
revenue coming in." '
Smith said MSU is already meeting quite a
few of the Title IX concepts. He said it is the
guidelines which wrongly interpret the law, not
te schools.

"Our school for the last four years has had an
athletic program built on several concepts of
Title IX,'' Smith said. "We've got comparable
facilities, budgets, coaches and a woman assist-
ant athletic director for w men's aso."
Canham and Smith said they'll wait until
the guidelines are in their final form, actually
take effect and are clearly explained before
making plans on how to,comply.
"If it's a 'federal law we'll have to go along
with it," Canham said, "though we've 'got thsree
years to implement the guidelines."
Both men are also waiting for athletic pro-
gram changes to be decided at the National
Collegiate Athtetic Ass ciation's special cost-
cutting convention set for August in Chicago.
John A. Fuzak, president of the NCAA and
an MSU associate dean, said the proposed guide-
lines "tend to treat w men's sports the sanie
way football and basketball are treated.
"The HEW guidelines could very easily kill
those two sports which are supporting all the
others with the revenue they earn," Filttk
Funak think the guidelines wr ugly interpret
the 1972 law 'by demanding an absolute end
to sex discrimination in all an of a school
.which receives federal aid, even though a par-
ticular program may not benefit from the
money. '
"You can't treat the reventle and non-revenue
sports 'the same," Fuzak said. "In many inter-
collegiate programs beth men's and women's
sports are largely or totally supported by
earned income from and contributions to foot-
bail and basketball"
