There will be concessions near the clubhouse and at fe o Looker Rooms Get A Itressiny Up f. 3 ROOM C V' f WIPE NEW YORK - (NEA) -Soul music bounces through the wire cages, ricochets off the plaster walls and filters out into the concourses. This, the man says, sounds more like a discotheque than a dressing room. Inside, amid the acrid whiffs of liniment, sweat and foot powder, the music seems as much a part of the dressing room as the water fountains. Soul music is, after all, one of those rare sounds that both titillates and irritates a man's aesthetic sensibility like having Elke Sommer belch in your ear. Waring portable radios, however, are but a part of this relatively unseen portion of American sports. Reporters are forever writing so-called "dressing room stories," but rarely tell us anything about the actual dressing room. Almost every American male has come in contact with an athletic dressing room at one time or another. Everybody knows what a high school locker room smells like the stale towels, stiff socks and creeping athlete's foot. The professional dressing room, gentlemen, is another thing. Forget those old images. Today, the locker room is more than just a place to change clothes, peel off tape and wash dirt off the nose. There are carpets on the floor and a kind of sterility in the air. Burleigh Grimes would have to throw away his chew before they'd let him in. Out there on the field or in the gymnasium the athlete is as vulnerable as a nude terrapin. Out there, he is subject to anything from a rather scathing hiss to a beer bottle in the neck. Inside the dressing room, however, it is the athlete's party, lie reigns. He sits on the stool in front of his locker, perhaps nursing a bruise. Even the most infltt- MONDAY & TUESDAY ONLY! 4 r i v h i m; mm ii v, mi r mm.- ii 1 w v LOW AS ential visitors are cautious here. Contrary to opinion, you see, dressing rooms are not necessarily interview rooms. Here the athlete is on equal grounds. Most often, he is polite and answers the visitor's questions while he adjusts a tie or buckles his belt. Sometimes, though, he may like Ted Williams-tell you to get the hell away and leave him alone. The glamor disappears in the dressing room. All-Stars and All-Pros become the mortals who slam car doors on their fingers. Some of the old pros, their job finished, leave early while newer players, more interested in creating a public image, stick around until all the questions are asked. Then they file out, one by one. Somebody reaches up and snaps off the radio. A locker room attendant surveys the residue of used tape and soggy towels. "Look at (hat mess," he says. "Where do these guys think they are? Home?"

One committeeman who has scouted most of the teams on the Orange Bowl list said the Jayhawks were "the most exciting team I saw a great ball club."
