JEousy High On Soccer ' arwr -Although ASUs New Commissioner .- "mm Has Seen Only One Game PITTSBURGH (AP) -Bob Cousy, who won success and fame as a basketball player and coach before becoming commissioner of the American Soccer League, predicts success for his league and Its recently added Pittsburgh team. "Soccer's time has come," says Cousy, who was here to help launch the new Pltts-" burgh Miners franchise. "Of course, it will take four or five years to reach parity, with the other major professional sports." Cousy, 46, didn't have-much time for soccer while leading the Boston Celtics to a string of National Basketball Association championships In the 50s and 60s, or while coaching at Holy Cross. Jn fart, he admitted he's seen only one soccer match In his life. But he said that wouldn't hinder him as a ioc-cercommissioner. "In alignments, In sets, I've noticed parallels between soccer and basketball," he said. "Yet I don't think involvement requires any sort of expertise on my part. "Shoot, Maurice Podoloff, the first commissioner of the NBA, was a hockey man. He didn't know a basketball from a bocce ball." The fledgling Miners will play a 16-game home schedule in the ASL, beginning in April. Games will be played In football stadiums at either suburban Baldwin High School or North Hills High School. John Foley, a longtime soccer buff who is now president of Ironworkers Union Local No. 3, has been named coach. Other American Soccer League teams Include defending champion Rhode Island, Boston, Hartford, New York, New Jersey, Cincinnati, Cleveland and Indiana. Women Reporters Penetrate Locker Room An End To Civilization, Per Se By MICKEY HERSKOWITZ and STEVE PERKINS Q. I'm not against women's lib or women's anything, but I can't believe they are really letting women sportscasters into the dressing rooms at ball games. Is this on the level? Do the guys just postpone their showers, or what? Larry Stalman, Duluth, Minn. A. You heard right. The fem sportscasters are being admitted to a growing number of locker rooms, which, of course, means the end of Western civilization as we know It. Says Jane Chastaln of CBS: "I always send word to the team that I'll be there. And I know about men. I always set up the camera so I'm facing a wall. If there's going to be a streaker, he'll have to Jump up In front of me and the wall." In short, life In the locker room goes right on. .. Q. I would like to know what ever happened to Rocky Colavito, an ex-Detroit Tiger? Joey Collins, Tampa, Fla. A. Ex-Tlger and original Cleveland Indian home run hero, Colavito ended his baseball career with the Yankees in 1968. He last made news in 1973 as a coach for the Indians a job he no longer holds when he scuffled with reporter Russ Snyder. Q. Has Alex Karras always been such a good humored nut? I liked his dry wit on Monday night but always had the impression during his playing days that he was kind of a sorehead and pop-off. Harvey Shero, San Bernardino, Cal. A. Both impressions are UG Boosters Meet Tonight The Kentucky chapter of the University of Cincinnati Boosters will meet tonight, at 7:30 at Ft. Mitchell Coun-. try Club. Assistant basketball coach Jim Mitchell will report on Cincinnati's 68-58 upset victory over Marquette Tuesday night. correct. Karras has always rated as what writers call excellent copy, as far back as his college days. He made one of the more memorable farewell speeches ever heard at the University of Iowa. After a parade of senior teammates expressed their gratitude at the team banquet, Karras rose, glared at an assistant coach and said, "I want to thank this man for calling me a fat greaseball for four years." Q. Is the rumor we get about Rusty Staub and Wayne Garrett of the New York Mets fighting in a hotel room on a road trip true? We also heard that Don Hahn is Rusty 's roommate. Ken Hiller, Clifton, N. J. , A. The Mets' redhead has not had a roommate In six years, a privacy that extends to his bachelor lifestyle. The closest he came to a fight during that time, Staub recalls, was when he tried to break one up on a team bus while he was with Montreal and wound up being reprimanded by one of the coaches. .'V Q. When did pro football players quit using the old leather helmets and go to the hard plastic jobs? And wasn't Elroy Hirsch the first to wear a plastic helmet? Steve Melnyk, Columbus, Ohio. A. The plastic headgear began to appear right after the war, in 1945, when the supply of plastic was plentiful again. But various Chicago Bears and a few Iwi&M l j others around the league still wore leather helmets into the '50s. After Hirsch suffered a second, serious head injury,, in 1949, the coach of the Rams, Clark Shaughnessy, had a special helmet designed from a light, extra strong plastic that had been used in the construction of fighter plane fuel tanks. The helmet weighed only 11 ounces, about onethlrd the weight of the'-leather models. It was soon widely copied. (Do you ha.v6 a question about a sports pet&bnahty?
