Russell, Wolverines Open NCAA Tourney Bid Tonight By TED MEIER Associated Press Sports Writer Cazzie Russell, Michigan's college college basketball player of the year, starts tonight on the road he hopes will reach his one remaining remaining goal in the college sport. He never has played on a national championship team and this is his last chance. The two-time All-America has sparked Michigan to three straight Big Ten titles. He leads Civic Group Is Under Fire MILWAUKEE (AP) - A Milwaukee Milwaukee civic group seeking to obtain an expansion franchise in the National League was pictured pictured Thursday as one of the instigators of the antitrust ?c- tion against baseball. Attorneys defending the game against monopoly charges in the move of the Braves from Milwaukee Milwaukee to Atlanta, pointed an accusing finger at Teams Inc., and the Milwaukee Brewers Inc., whose leadership is much the same. Counsel sought to bring out, through cross-examination of a key state witness, that baseball- minded civic leaders, with the tacit approval of Milwaukee County officials, prodded the state into starting the suit now being tried before Circuit Judge Elmer W. Roller. Their aim, the defense claims, was to "harass baseball into submission," thereby keeping the Braves in Milwaukee or winning an expansion franchise for Milwaukee Brewers Inc. Bowie K. Kuhn, New York, attorney for the National League, who declared in his opening statement 10 days ago that the state was being used "as a tool of a private group," played a trump card Thursday. He succeeded in getting into the record a legal opinion the defense claims was used to influence influence the state to bring suit. The opinion from Washington, D.C., law firm held that a state antitrust suit against baseball would "have a substantial chance of success." Under cross examination by Kuhn, Allan H. (Bud) Selig, president of the Brewers and vice president of Teams Inc., testified that the memorandum was requested by the latter group and turned over to Wisconsin Wisconsin Atty. Gen. Bronson La Follette and the county late in July 1965. The state filed its action the following month. The county started a similar suit in federal court at approximately the same time.
