SPORTS Ali Not Worried About Young LANDOVER, Md. (AP) — "I've got a fight next month, the 25th, in Munich. Germany, against a big bad English guy," said Muhammad Ati. The heavyweight champion was talking about Richard Dunn two days before fighting Jimmy Young Friday night in the Capital Centre — a fight almost everybody but Young expects him to win. "Don't let my record fool you just because I don't have a lot of knockouts." said Young, who has a 17-4-2 mark with just five knockouts in a pro career dating back to 1969. "You all have been around Muhammad Ali boxing a long time." he said to reporters. "Haven't you heard of upsets?" The 27-year-old Young completed his training with three good rounds of sparring against Mike Koranicki and then watched Ali work out. "Spying on me." shouted Ali when he saw Young. "Tryin" to figure out what kind of whupping you're gonna get?" Ali spouted poetry, posed and postured, much to the delight of a crowd, which paid $4 apiece, to jam the hotel ballroom training site. But he did little else — some shadow boxing, rope skipping and work on the heavy bag — to the chagrin of at least one fan. "I spent part of my unemployment check to see you," shouted a man. "Now you take off that robe and get into the ring and do something." The request went unanswered. Ali is getting $1.6 million for his 18th title fight while Young is getting a purse of $75.000, by far the largest of his career, and $10.000 in expenses. "It means the heavyweight championship. It means I'll be on top in the heavyweight division," said Young of his title shot. "Most of all it means money." Young has been a fulltime fighter for just five months. Times Herald, Carroll, la. t Thunday, April 29, 1976 O Before that he worked as a truck driver, welder, construction worker and longshoreman while he pursued a boxing career plagued by managerial problems. He was a longshoreman when he outpointed Ron Lyle in February 1975 in the fight which is the main reason he got a title shot. "This is gonna be a good fight," said Young. "I promise you."

The Tigers jumped on Mike Norris and Dick Bosnian for six runs in the third inning. Johnson tripled for one run, then Willie Horton and Jason Thompson singled in a run apiece.

Young and Keith Heaver Glances, See Page 7 By The Associated Press When Randy Smith is determined, there's apparently nothing anybody can do about it. "... I was just determined to put the ball in, no matter . what," Smith said after his 25- foot jumper swished through the net with three seconds left in the game. The basket lifted the Buffalo Braves to a 124-122 victory over the Boston Celtics and knotted their best-of-seven National Basketball Association quarter-final series at two games apiece. In Wednesday night's other NBA quarter-final, defending champion Golden State crushed Detroit 128-109. "I was supposed to go to the hoop, but the middle looked congested, so I pulled up for the jump shot,'' Smith said. "When he (Coach Jack Ramsay) called the play (during a timeout). I was just determined to put the ball in, no matter what. JoJo White was playing off me and I saw big (Dave) Cowens in the middle." Smith wasn't alone in the heroics department for Buffalo. Bob McAdoo scored 30 points, grabbed'17 rebounds'and came up with four steals before' fouling out late in the game. And guard Ernie DiGregorio scored 19 of his 21 points in the second half while handing out 10 assists. Then there was rookie John Shumate, who came up with a key block as time ran out. • After Smith's game-winning bucket. Boston called lime out, getting the ball at midcourt. The inbounds play went to Nelson, who got off a jumper just before the final buzzer. But it wa's blocked by Shumate. Cowens, whose tip-in tied the game at 122-all, setting the stage for Smith's heroics, led the Boston scoring with 29 points while White added 28 and Nelson 27. Warriors 128, Pistons 109 Rick Barry scored 25 points and stole seven passes to lead Golden State past Detroit and into a 3-2 lead in their best-of- seven series. " "Rick Barry is the catalyst for that club," said Pistons Coach Herb Brown. "Phil Smith had a great game too, but Barry had a great offensive night, his first in five games. He breaks you down so many ways." Smith led the Warriors' attack with 28 points! But Barry also had 11 assists and seven rebounds as Golden State marched out to a 60-48 halftime lead, then outscored Detroit 15-2 in the opening minutes of the third period to put thegame away early. Psychiatrist Gave Out Amphetamines SAN DIEGO (AP) — A University of California psychiatrist says he supplied drugs to San Diego Charger players without the knowledge or consent of the club's front office. Dr. Arnold Mandell of UC San Diego said he supplied amphetamines to the Chargers during the 1973 season, when the team won two games, lost 11 and tied one. During that season. Mandell acted as an unpaid consultant and team psychiatrist at the invitation of Harland Svare, former Charger coach and general manager. Mandell said neither Svare nor Charger owner Gene Klein knew he was prescribing amphetamines for the players. In fact, Svare had issued orders • to the team's medical staff not to hand out amphetamines. The psychiatrist said he defied the order on his own initiative and did not tell Svare or Klein what he was doing. • "I was not in their hire,' he said. "It was my own personal decision." Mandell said he did it to make certain that the players were taking pure drugs and wouldn't have to buy narcotics from street pushers in San Diego and nearby Mexico. "I saw them going toTi- juana, taking garbage. I just went crazy," he said. Mandell labeled amphetamines "crude, awful drugs," but never advised the players against taking them, saying half the players in the National Football League need them to prepare for a game. But he did. he said, warn the players to steer clear of marijuana on grounds that it would destroy ''their football-playing abilities." Mandell, who holds a degree in medicine as well as psychiatry, said he was legally qualified to prescribe drugs and that his conscience is clear in the matter. "I never prescribed more drugs than the players were already taking," he said. "I have medical records locked up and they're open to the. Board of Medical Examiners or anyone else who wants to see them." . , Klein fired Svare as Chargers' general manager this year after excerpts from Man dell's book, "The Nightmare .Season," were made public.. The book portrays Svare as a week- willed puppet of Klein. Svare has since threatened to sue the psychiatrist-author. "I just can't believe that," said Mandell. "I never intended to do anyone any harm. I just reported things as they were.. I wa's not judgmental." He also said he wrote the* book to portray Svare's "personal brand of greatness."
