THE PHILADELPHIA INQUIRER, SUNDAY MORNING, FEBRUARY 5, 1967 3 a cde g 1 Terrell Unshaken i by Clay's Vaudeville Act i HOUSTON, Feb. 4. A man of simple tastes and quiet dignity, Ernie Terrell stands aloof from the carnival atmosphere created here by Cassius Clay, the world's most celebrated camel driver. Ernie is a victim of the worst scheduling of acts since vaudeville was laid to rest. Every day in the training sessions at the Astrohall, Terrell follows Muhammad Ali, a stand-up comic with poetry in his soul. It reminds one of the story of a benefit show many years ago when Al Jolson said that he would appear but he insisted on being the closing act. The producer agreed and listed him to come on after the noted tenor Enrico Caruso, who finished his act by singing a patriotic song while American flags fluttered all over the stage. The audience went wild and now it was Jolson's turn. He GENE COURTNEY walked out, loosened his tie and said: "That was good, but you ain't heard nuthin yet." If Terrell were a Joison, it might help. But he is a young man who owns a piece of a championship that practically nobody recognizes and who follows Clay's crass but exciting routine with a simple exhibition of boxing. The audience naturally feels let down. It's like putting the tumbling act after Sammy Davis, Jr. As a result, many here believe that Clay has "psyched" Terrell just as he said he did to Sonny Liston and Cleveland Williams. Terrell, himself, believes that Clay, with his antics, had emotionally upset both Liston and Williams. "Both of them looked like they were bugged," Terrell said. "And Patterson, he definitely was. Remember, he was seeing spies in his own camp. I think he was easier to bug than the rest of them." HOW about Chuvalo, Cooper or London? Terrell smiled and replied: "They didn't have to be bugged." Terrell also insists that Clay's antics are not upsetting him. "He is making an idiot of himself," Terrell added. "If he wants to clown, he should join the circus. I don't care how much he talks. I know what he can do. It's a lack of confidence that's making him carry on like that." Clay has scuffled with Terrell in public. He has insulted him by calling Ernie an "Uncle Tom." He has deprecated his ability. And he needles Ernie constantly by saying he'll ask Terrell a question at the weigh-in and the answer will decide just how badly Clay will beat him. Clay went so far that the embarrassed promoters were forced to state publicly that they had nothing to do with his childish stunts. And even Herbert Muhammad, the only man who presumably can control the champion, sent a message from Chicago to the noted theologian to hold down the clowning. Understandably, Terrell is concerned. If this fight should happen to be chased but of Texas because of some idiotic or unpatriotic remark by the well-known Muslim minister, there aren't too many places left in the country that would accept Muhammad Ali with open arms. TERRELL has wanted this fight with Clay since he acted as a sparring partner for him in Miami Beach five years ago. Clay, at that time, was preparing for a bout with the late Sonny Banks (who, incidentally, was the first man to knock Clay down). In most of the sessions, Terrell handled Clay like a baby until trainer Angelo Dundee chased him from the camp. That insult has rankled Terrell ever since. Just the other day, the Clay forces had spies watching and taking films of Terrell's workouts. What prompted the secret agents to attend Ernie's workout was the report that Terrell's right hand (which he usually uses only to scratch his head or mail letters) was being employed as a potent weapon. It was landing with good accuracy and it was dropping slim Jim Robinson and Mel Brooks, Ernie's sparring partners. Did the spying bother him, Terrell was asked? "Not a bit," Ernie replied. "If he don't know how to beat me by this time, he's in trouble." Not too many people agree with Terrell, Including Bernie Glickman, a friend of Frankie Carbo, who managed Ernie early in his career. Does Glickman have any connection at all with Terrell now? "No," Bernie said. "I am here as a spectator to root for Ernie. I pay my way into the workouts and I bought my own ticket for the fight. I think Ernie is one of the most underrated fighters in the world, but I'll tell you something. If he tries to throw the right hand instead of his normal way of punching with the left and holding, Ernie's gonna get knocked out." i. Ashe, Pasarell Reach Finals RICHMOND, Va., Feb. 4 (AP). Richmond's Arthur Ashe downed fourth - seeded Cliff Ritchie, 6-4, 7-5; Saturday, in his home town. Ashe showed overpowering strength, beating the San Angelo, Tex., player in an hour. In the morning's second singles, third-seeded Charles Pa- sarelL of Santurce, Puerto Rico, dispatched Chuck Mc-Kinley, of Fort Washington, N. Y., 6-3, 11-9. Pasarell will face Ashe in Sunday's final.

PHIL-CO COMMUNICATIONS S ELECTRONICS 0IVISI0M An Equal Opportunity Employer MF Two-Mile Relay To Manhattan; Villanova 3d By ROGER KEIM Of The Inquirer Staff Villanova's two-mile relay team was upset Saturday night in the best of the college relay events at the 23d Annual Inquirer Games. Manhattan's Brian Kivlan held off a late rush by Harvard's Bill Burns to give the Jaspers a tight, two-yard victory in 7:42.2, the fastest here since Seton Hall won with a meet record 7:38.2 in 1964. Harvard was timed in 7:42.6. Villanova, despite ? determined anchor leg by Dave Patrick, who had broken the Borican 1000 record 80 minutes before, was never in contention. The Wildcats were third in 7:45.8. 'CATS HAVE PROBLEMS For Villanova, winners of the Boston AA two-mile relay in 7:30, its problems started early. Al McCafferty didn't run because of a slight muscle pull. But coach Jumbo Elliott has interchanged his lineup through the indoor season. Then leadoff man Jack O' Leary stumbled and almost fell in the traffic jam on the first turn after the start. Before O'Leary recovered, Manhattan's Jim Sherlock had the lead and the rest of the field was gone. The officials failed to keep times on Villanova, including Patrick's gallant, but impossible bid. Johnson C. Smith just edged Villanova and Maryland State in the Liberty Bell One-Mile Relays. Smith won its heat by two-tenths of a second over Maryland State in 3:23.8. Villanova's Hardld Nichter, Bill Grant, Ken Prince and Bill Heidelberger took their heat in 3:24.0. The Wildcats' Al Kreischer, Rene Schlag, Hardge Davis and Larry James beat St. John's by 6.8 seconds with a 7:12.0 victory in the interval two-mile relay. Earlier, St. Joseph's won the one - mile relay between four Middle Atlantic Conference schools. Anchorman Dave Van Dusen ran the last 4:40 in 0:51.1 and closed out Temple's Joe Dau-bert by four yards for the winning time of 3:25.2. Van Dusen took the lead at the start of the 1 gun lap and kept it without difficulty. Temple (3:26.1) easi ly was second over West Ches ter State (3:30.2). Muhammad Ali and who is seeking a draft deferment on the grounds that he is a Black Muslim minister, also will be looking for his 27th straight victory since he turned professional in October of 1960. Clay has scored 22 knockouts and he is expected to be at least a 4-1 favorite to win the bout that might have the largest audience ever for a heavyweight championship fight. The audience is being esti mated at more than 100 million people in 56 countries. In addition to live telecasts via Early Bird satellite to Great Britain! and via Lani Bird satellite to' Japan, there will be delayed telecasts to all of Europe, Asia, nity antenna television systems. "This certainly has to be the largest scope a fight has ever achieved," said Mike Malitz, executive vice president of Main Bout, Inc., closed circuit TV producer for the fight. The local promoter for the bout is Astrodome Champion- Sec Red Smith's Column on Page 8 fight, but we haven't gotten any figures from our other outlets." Clay, 25, won the title from Sonny Liston in Miami Beach on Feb. 25, 1964. He defended it successfully against Liston, Floyd Patterson, George Chuvalo, Henry Cooper, Brian London, Karl Mildenberger and Williams. Terrell won his WBA championship on March 5, 1965, when he outpointed Eddie Machen in a 15-rounder in Chicago. Terrell, who will be 28 in April, started his pro career in 1957. He has had a total of 43 bouts, winning 39 and losing four. He has knocked out 18 opponents and he has successfully defended his title twice against Chuvalo and Doug Jones. In a comparison between Clay and Terrell, Cassius is rated the better boxer, the faster of the two and the harder puncher. Many consider Terrell a one- Tale-of-Tape armed fighter (left jabs and ! hooks) with a boring and clutch ing style. The unbeaten Clay has never been knocked out either in his amateur or pro career but he has been knocked down twice by the late Sonny Banks and by Cooper in his first bout with Clay. Both Banks and Cooper dropped Cassius with left hooks. Terrell has a knockout on his record but it actually is a TKO in his first bout with Williams. The referee, Liston, stopped the fight in the seventh round at the urging of Sam Solomon, Terrell's trainer, who feared Ernie would be badly hurt after Williams landed a few bombs. rOPEN SUNDAY 10 TO 3- Oaily M, Sat.
