Light heavyweight champ scored fourth-round knockout No Flashes of Lightning in Ali's Win But Foster Provides TV Thunderbolt By JOHN FLYNN 01 The Inquirer Staff The magic of Muhammad Ali drew 10,000 fight fans to the Spectrum Tuesday night, but the power of Bob Foster brought them out of their seats an dinto the aisles. It was nightie-night punch the kind Ali wishes he could throw that Foster landed on young Mike Quarry's chin at the end of the fourth round. Down went young Quarry, and up came the closed-circuit crowd at the Spectrum at least the portion of the crowd rooting for the soul-brother. THE LEFT-HANDED punch was replayed time and again, and each time it landed on Quarry's fuzzy chin, the fans reacted. "Booh," they yelled Pocono Denies Postponenemt Special to The Inquirer LONG POND, Pa. A spokesman for Pocono International Raceway on Tuesday night denied reports that a sewage disposal problem created by last week's flooding in Northeastern Pennsylvania would cause postponement of Sunday's secord annual Sca-hefer 500-mile auto race. It . was reported that the Wilkes-Barre-based company that supplies most of the portable toilets for the track had suffered extensive damage and that the race would be rescheduled possibly on Aug. 6. "It would take more than that to cause a postponement," the spokesman said. "We have plenty of permanent toilet facilities of the raceway property." .

Undoubtedly, it was one of few tim?s that Ali, who whipped Jerry Quarry in the 12-round feature, ever had been upstaged. Upstaged, if that is possible for this magic showman. Young Quarry had not regained his senses before Ali, setting in his dressing room, was regaining center stage. "This is the first time I've ever been caught right before I annihilate my opponent," Ali told closed-circuit announcer Mel Allen. ALI DID INDEED annhilate Jerry Quarry. He danced and pranced and posed, he smiled and scowled and made a fool of Quarry and the fans ate it ip. But there was no thunder and lightning during his TKO victory. No one-punch magic of which heavyweight lore is made. No reason for the fans to explode into the aisles. Instead, Foster, the light-heavyweight champion, may have made history on this night with the one left hand delivered to Mike Quarry's waiting chin. "It was," said an astute fan at the Spectrum, "one of the damndest punches I've ever seen." circuit production generally was excellent, with the exception of the sound. That, however, may have been a blessing. From the beginning, Allen, the old Yankee baseball announcer, bumbled and fumbled. He introduced his color man, actor Jack Palance, as Bob Palance. He called Mike Quarry Mike Foster. He called Bob Foster Bob Quarry. He called Jerry Quarry Jerry Foster. And on and on. But not once did he confuse Muhammad Ali and that, despite, Foster's thunder and lightning, was the most revealing fact of the night. MUHAMMAD ALPS Cherry Hill neighbors cheered when he corrected the ring announcer, who introduced the former heavyweight champion as being from Louisville. A crowd of about 2,000 which contributed to gate of about $16,000 at the closed-circuit showing of the Las Vegas fights at Cherry Hill Arena, watched Bob Foster knock out Mike Quarry in silence. The TV sound was dead, but it was restored in time for the Ali-Jerry Quarry fight. The promoter said no $8-a-ticket patrons asked for their ' money back. at $7.50 a head, watched the closed-circuit telecast at the Logan Theater on north Broad st. Andy Dougherty has been appointed sports information director at St. Joseph's College, it was a n n o u need Tuesday. Dou-erty, who represents the class of 1948 on the College's Alumni Board of Gov ernors, replaces Dennis ANDY xghErty Lynch who resigned to join the public relations staff of the National Football League New England Patriots.

Chairman Wins Delval Tennis Mrs. Carolyn Lampi, tournament chairman, won the Delaware Valley tennis championship by defeating top- seeded Mrs. Toni Novack, Upper Dublin TC 6-1, 6-2 Tuesday night at the Rifle Club. MAMARONECK, N. Y. (AP). Defending champion Jo-Anne Carner, four-time winner Betsy Rawls and hard-luck Hawaiian Jackie Pung are expected to tee up at Winged Foot Golf Club Thursday for the $40,000 U.S. Women's Open. It was here in 1957 that" Miss Rawls, now a 21-year veteran of the pro tournament trail, won her third Open title with a seven-over-par 299 after Mrs. Pung, who had bested her by one stroke, was disqualified for signing a wrong score card. A record 176 players were entered in the 72-hole test over the 6,226-yard par 72 East Course layout, but a draw, with the top players exempted, reduced the field to the 150 limit. IT WAS the first time in U.S. Golf Association history that such a pre-tourney elimination was necessary. The previous record entry was 141 for last year's Open at the Kahkwa Club course in Erie, Pa. - Mrs. Carner, a strapping strawberry blonde from See-'-konk, Mass., mastered that 6,306-yard, par-72 layout with an even-par 288 to collect the $5,000 first prize of a $35,000 purse. Also gunning for this year's top money of $6,000 will be Kathy Whitworth, the all-time leading money winner in the Ladies' Professional Golf Association and owner of every major title except this one. Last year she was runner-up to Mrs. Carner with a 295. OTHERS IN the field are four-time Open winner Mickey Wright and past champions Donna Caponi Young, Susie Maxwell B e r n i n g, Sandra Spuzich, Carol Mann, Mary Mills, Murle Lindstrom Breer, Kathy Cornelius and Louise Suggs. Laura Baugh, who last year at 16 became the youngest U.S. Women's Amateur champion, and her 1972 U.S. Curtis Cup teammates head the list of 56 amateurs expected to compete. Jane Blalock, who tied for third in last year's Open and is this year's leading money-winner, also will be on hand even if she loses her court battle pending in Atlanta. MISS BLALOCK recently was suspended for one year from the LPGA on charges of professional misconduct but ' ' gained a temporary injunction barring the suspension. She also filed a $5 million' damage suit against the ' LPGA. This week's championship, ' however, is sponsored by the USGA and is open to any golf- 1 er who qualifies on the basis of her performance. Two Teams Deadlock In Wasserman Golf By MAYER BRANDSCHAIN Whitemarsh Valley's Mrs. Chris Stayton and Evelyn Janos shared first place with Springhaven's Mrs. Maurice Webster and Mrs. Richard Bigelow with an aggregate net of 150 in the ninth annual Tish Wasserman memorial invitation handicap tournament Tuesday at Aronimink GC.

Clayton 'KOs' Monroe Rival Zach Clayton, chairman of the State Athletic Commission, on Tuesday announced the cancellation of promoter Bob Montgomery's Thursday night card in the Arena, which was to be headed by a fight between Willie Monroe and Max Cohei. Cohen, who gave Monroe his only professional loss in Paris in March, withdrew because of a slipped d-sc in his back. Gayton then gave Montgomery until noon on Tuesday to find another opponent. Montgomery suggested Alvin Phillips of New Orleans, who had already lost twice to Monroe. "Zach told him he couldn't go abng with that," said Bob Patterson, commission executive secretary. FRANK DOLSON Continued from 1st Sports Page kids' baseball caps, etc.) Also lost was a big promotion. The day Agnes hit, Max Patkin, the baseball clown, was scheduled to perform. Racial problems on the Phillies? Joe Lis, who is white, and Bill Robinson, who is black, roomed together in Montreal and Chicago by request. "We roomed together in Hawaii (as members of the Phillies' Eugene farm club)," Joe recalled. "I said, 'You know, you're the first black guy I ever roomed with.' He said, 'You're the first white guy . .." Robinson, who started Tuesday's second game in center field, has clearly impressed Frank Lucchesi. "How the hell has this kid been in the minor leagues the last three years?" the Phillies' manager asked. The pent-up frustrations of this long, long road trip finally caught up to Larry Bowa in the sixth inning of the nightcap. After hitting a soft fly to left field, Bowa took a bat at knocked out three lights in the runway behind the visiting dugout. "First good wood I got on anything today," Larry cracked . . . Roger Freed may be able to take unmerciful ribbing, but when Cub fans in the right-field bleachers began firing metal clips at him with rubber bands he complained to the umpires ... "I got hit once in the leg," Roger said, "and another time in the back. I'd hate to turn around and have one hit me in the eye. That scares me."
