The American Basketball League tias not made a decision on such matters. Hightower now will be placed in the draft of the NBA and the ABL. next spring.

PICKS A VIKING Buffalo, Aug. 14 —(/P)— Jim Owens, Washington's victorious Rose Bowl coach and one of the West coaches in the All-American Bowl game here, had this to say about Tommy- Mason of Tulane, rookie with the Minnesota Vikings: "He's tremendous—a real running back. If I had to pick one man from both squads, he'd be it. He's big and fast, real easy to work with and loves the game." Today's Baseballs Different From Those In Babe Ruth Days? New York, Aug. 14—(/P)—The baseball which Mickey Mantle and Roger Maris are belting at a record home run pace is slightlj larger, slightly lighter and slightly livelier than the ball with which Babe Ruth hit 60 home runs in 1927, scientific tests by the New York Times disclosed today. The same tests, however, failed to prove the ball should make home runs any easier today than 34 years ago. "Interesting, but in conclusive," was the scientists' verdict. The Times, spurred by talk that Ruth's great record is in jeopardy because of the "rabbit" in the modem baseball, decided to subject some baseballs of different eras to analysis. The job was given to a firm of consulting chemists and engineers, who spent a week putting the various baseballs through testa in laboratories and in New York's Central Park. The baseballs were measured with a caliper. The material were subjected to closest scrutiny and chemical examination. Some were dissected. All of them were given a battering by an explosive-driven ram. According to Robert W. Batey, the company's director of special evaluations, and Stephen E. Taub, the firm's acting director of engineering, there was no concrete finding to show the modern baseball differs appreciably from its predecessors of the last three decades. • The engineering firm tested seven balls—one of them a ball hit by Ruth in 1927, and a 1936 jail autographed by the New York Giants, a 1960 official American League ball, a 1961 American League ball from the Yankee's collection and three official American League balls bought in a local sporting goods store. All the balls are made — and Spalding & Bros., Inc., whose president, Edwin L. Parker, says: "Today's ball and the one Ruth hit are identical."

Derby, Kentucky Derby and Pr^akness, has been recovering from Injuries suffered in last June's Belmont Stakes, a real threat for the dFown has arisen. Me is Calumet Farm's Beau Prince, a son of Bull Lea. Beau Prince, highly regarded by tfalner Jimmy Jones during the winter and then kept out of the rich spring stakes by illness, started his belated bid for the title with an eaay victory in the American Derby at Arlington Park Aug. 5. He proved the American Derby come-from-behind triumph was no fluke when he romped dway with the $83,400 Travers at Saratoga last Saturday. Taking advantage of the slow early pace, the Calumet colt took command under Steve Brooks after three-eights of a mile and remained on the front end for a 5J length decision over Mrs. Robert Dotter's Guadalcanal. Robert Lehman's Amblopoise was another length back in third place. With 3-year-olds dominating the feature races Saturday, Harry O. H. Frelinghuysen's Merry Ruler posted his fpurth stakes triumph with victory over 15 others of his age in the $32,050 Ventnor Turf Handicap at Atlantic City.
