Diver enrolls at 'M'
AIR FORCE ACADEMY, Colo.-Air Force Capt. Phil Boggs,
who won the men's springboard diving gold medal at the Montreal
Games, said yesterday he plans to leave the military, and might
attend the University of Michigan Law School.
Boegs, 26, an instructor in astronautics and computer
scieuces at the Academy, said his plans are indefinite, but he
has applied to the University.
Boggs, from Akron, Ohio, entered the Air Force in 1971.
Yesterday, he presented an exhibition of the dives that won him
the gold medal at Montreal. Mayor Larry Ochs of Colorado
Springs, among the 2,000 persons who watched Boggs' exhibition,
presented him a Bicentennial medal from the city.
Hall of Famers
COOPERSTOWN, N.Y.-Robin Roberts and Bob Lemon, pre-
meier pitchers during the 1950s, were among the six new
members inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in ceremonies
hampered by rain here yesterday. "It's downhill from here on,"
said Lemon. "This is the whole thing. My whole life." Roberts
said simply, "I'm just very thrilled."
Also inducted were Fred Lindstrom, a lifetime .311 hitter
in the National League; former American League umpire Cal
Hubbard; Roger Connor, home run king in pre-1900, and
Oscar Charleston, Negro League standout during the 1920s and
1930s. Both Connor and Charleston are deceased.
Roberts won 20 games or more six straight years starting in
1950 with the National League champion Philadelphia Phillies.
Lemon posted seven 20-victory seasons including an over-all
207-128 record, all with the Cleveland Indians.
The house Ali built
MIAMI--Muhammad Ali says his lawyers won't like it, but
he's going to buy a new home for sprinter Houston McTear and
his family.
All said he'd buy the house after hearing that McTear was one
of 10 family members sharing a small rural home-some call it
a shack-in Baker, Fla.
"God blessed me and made me the most famous person on
earth," Ali said in a telephone interview with the Miami News
from his training camp in Berrion Springs, Mich. "And I've
made $41 million boxing. So I hate to see a boy in that condi-
tion. I always think about myself and the other boys who
have been in the ghetto with great talent. And I want to help
them."
"So I'll get McTear a house. Even if he can't pay me back.
I'll get him a house. Something nice, no shack."
"I'd go broke if I helped everybody," Ali added. "But I want
to help this boy . . . Anybody who his risen to the heights he has
under the poor conditions under which he's lived deserves to be
helped."

The Chicago White Sox' irrepressable owner, Bill Veeck may be out to out-Finley Charlie Finley
as his team unveiled his nowest secret weapon Sunday for the hometown crowd-short pants.
Here Jerry Hairston puts his best leg forward to avoid being picked off at first in the first
game of a doubleheader against Kansas City. There may be something to it, the Sox won the
opener, but donned the traditional knickers in the nightcap and lost, 7-1.
