"m 9 Army Or Prison Nearing For Clay CINCINNATI (UPI)-Casslus Clay, his legal avenues reduced to a one-way street, is only ten days away from having the word private or a prison number in front of his name. The 25-year-old heavyweight boxing champion, indefatigable and invincible in the ring, suffered two more losses in the courtroom Monday in his long fight to avoid induction into the Army April 28. His appeals were rejected by the Supreme Court and the U.S. sixth circuit Court of Appeals. He now has only an appeal to the Supreme Court on the circuit -court rejection between him and the Army. Or a federal prison. Clay, who prefers to be called Muhammad Ali, the name he took upon becoming a member of the Negro supremacist Black Muslim cult, had said in the past he would prefer prison to military service. Monday, he said his actions would be guided by Allah. "I'm ready to go," Clay said from Chicago. "I won't say where I'm going. The almighty (U.S.) government has laws, and Allah has laws. It's up to me to make a choice between the government's laws and the law of Allah." The choice, he said, would be Allah. "I'm going to obey the laws of Allah first," Clay said. "I'm ready to stand up to machine gun fire just to protect my religious beliefs. The Supreme Court refused without comment to hear Clay's appeal for an exemption on grounds that he is a Black Muslim minister. He claimed in his suit that Negroes have been discriminated against by the Selective service System. He asked that the entire draft system be declared unconstitu tional and a three-judge panel be named to hear his appeal. In the sixth court decision, a three-judge court ruled there was no Constitutional question involved and they felt Con gress did not feel draftees should have the right to litigate th$ validity of their induction before acceptance for national service. Such action, the court ruled, would disrupt the entire .draft system. Al McGuire Guest Speaker At Falls Athletic Banquet ' The annual Sheboygan Falls Kiwanis Club Athletic Awards Banquet will be held next Wednesday, April 26, in the Municipal Auditorium. It will begin at 6:30 p.m. All varsity letterwinners as well as varsity cheerleaders in all sports will be honored; with the Falcon basketball team ruling the Eastern Wisconsin Conference, the event thus will have a championship tinge. Tickets will be on sale at Boldt Drug Store, Bob's Lunch, Citizens State Bank, Troy Cleaners and all Kiwanis Club members. Making the event especially attractive will be the appearance of Al McGuire, the dynamic coach of Marquette University, as guest speaker according to Don Marotz. McGuire came to Marquette succeeding Ed Hickey in the 1964-65 season and led the Warriors to an 8-18 record following the worst record in the school's history the previous year, 5-21. The Warriors compiled a 14-12 log the following season and last year McGuire guided the Marquette five into the finals of the National Invitational Tournament, before losing to the Salukis of Southern Illinois. A one-time guard known for his fighting spirit and defensive ability, McGuire was captain of both his high school basketball team and the 1950-51 St. John's University cage team which posted a 26-5 record and finished third in the NIT. Al McGuire During 1948 and 1949 he team ed with his brother, Dick to give St. John's one of the famous basketball brother acts of all time. Dick is presently head coach of the New York Knickerbockers in the NBA. Following graduation from college, McGuire played in the NBA for three seasons with the Knicks and Baltimore Bui lets. In his first head coaching job McGuire guided Belmont Ab bey College to a 114 and 58 re cord, despite the New York college's handicap of not hav' ing a home floor. Soviets Agree To Fay Travel Fees For AAV Track Meet ' NEW YORK (UPI) -Russia and the United States, who rarely see eye-to-eye on matters, -seem headed for a financial agreement over the Soviet Union's boycott of a scheduled track meet last year. Donald Hull, executive director of the Amateur Athletic Union, said Monday that Russia had offered to reimburse the U.S. for costs incurred last July when they pulled out of a Los Angeles track meet. "I am quite pleased," Hull said. "It's a step in the right direction."

Dwigfit Pelkin , By KEARNEY EGERTOM That was quite a day Mike Maurer of Sheboygan Falls had Saturday when Ripon College creamed St. Norbert in track; the versatile ace "only": Won the 100-yd dash in 10-flat; Won the 220-yd dash in 23.6; Won the high jump at 6-feet-3; Ran on the winning mile relay! We might add that a former Chilton athlete did all right on the losing side as well-Tom Schoen, who as a sophomore slung the javelin 165 9" to win that event and also popped the shot put into the 40s for second place. Soccer got off to a pretty good start Sunday, we'd say. Five , cities pulled in 46,547 fans which may not seem like much but was actually pretty respectable. For instance, the game in Philadelphia drew 14,163 enthusiasts which was almost 5,000 more than were at the Mets-Philly game there! Chicago drew the smallest throng with 4,725 but here, too, it wasn't really too bad since there were tornado warnings and rain and by comparison the White Sox-Washington doubleheader took in only 9,189. All of which sounds reasonable for a start. Incidentally, you know that television is having quite an effect on the playing rules just as it intrudes so much in football. Ordinarily, soccer is split-up into two 45-minute halves without any timeouts (nor can a player be substituted-for, regardless of injuries) . . . but National League games will have five "breaks" for commercials in each half. Actually, the interruptions may not be quite as bad as it sounds for some of the commercials can be rung-in on out-of-bounds plays where the clock is stopped briefly. Oh yes and the fans who go out to the Main Avenue field to see the Sheboygan Sports Club play might wonder at what's happening when they see the standings. Ordinarily, as is the case in the Wisconsin State League, a team gets two points for a win, one for a tie, and a zero if it loses but in the National League they're awarding six points for a win, three for a tie, and a sort of bonus arrangement in which you can get additional points for each goal scored (up to a maximum of three). and Arnold Palmer, it really produced a crackling windup. Here was Palmer eight strokes off the pace when the final round began shooting an eagle-3 on the first hole of the day to really fire him up, and then ramming home five birdies besides for a fantastic 29 (on a par-36 nine, mind not a 35er). But his second nine demonstrates exactly how the game of golf goes. From that sensational start, he came up with such things as a 4-putter on the 14th hole (for a double-bogey 5) . . . rebounded on the very next hole with another eagle-3 . . . and wound up with an erratic bogey-par-bird finish. But what a rally! And Beard came up with quite a windup himself. Here he was tied with Palmer as he stood on the tee on the 540 - yard par-5 18th: should he stick to his 2-iron as he had been doing before on the hole, thereby setting up a reasonably certain par (and a playoff shot at Arnie) .... or should he go-for-it with a driver and perhaps run the chance of trouble? So he went for it, "just knocked the hell out of it" on his drive, and gave himself the shot at victory via a bird. How long was his putt? "Fifty feet" said Beard. And he admitted of the putt (actually about seven feet): "Sure, I w a s nervous but not too much. I knew I still had another putt to tie and there was the playoff to remember." So he stepped up and hit the ball quickly, it nicked the corner of the cup, and dropped. Simple. SHEBOYGAN PRESS, Tuesday, 'April 18, 1967 17 Hurting Warriors Hope For 1st Win In Playoff Series "When am I going to quit playing? I'll say the tame thing Sammy Sessler says when he runs Riverdale as Winter Pro: when it stops being fun, that's when!" And how about the Tournament of Champions at Las Vegas? Between Frank Beard Anent the Madison West Relays in which Pat Matzdorf did so well with his record-matching 6-4 high jump for North: besides Manitowoc and its championship total in Class A, Oshkosh picked up 4 1-3 while Fond du Lac and West Bend, as other area teams, failed to score. And another Northman pops into the story in that when Beloit's Joe Pos-ton did the 70-yard low hurdles in 8-flat, it wiped out the old standard of 8.2 tied back in 1961 by Bill Genszler. And as for Mike Stieghorst, North's other contestant besides Matzy: he just missed 6-1 in the high jump, which could have been good for a third . . . while in the hurdles, after winning his heat he had the misfortune of being placed in the semifinals against the boys who ultimately placed 1-2 in the finals and even so, barely was beaten out on a close decision. WIAA Identifies Disciplined Prep Case Coaches STEVENS POINT, Wis. (UPI) Three high school basketball coaches who were disciplined for unsportsmanlike conduct during the past season were identified Monday. Clint Coburn of Pepin and Cliff Dilts of White Lake were placed on one year's probation. Dave Stelfplug of Whitehall was given a letter of reprimand. The board of control of the Wisconsin Interscholastic Athletic Association had taken the action at its March 17 meeting, but' the names of the coaches were not released until now. The incidents involved conduct of the coaches with referees. The association recently is sued a blistering attack on con duct against referees by coach es, cheerleaders and fans, say ing it put the game in peril at the high school level. SAN FRANCISCO (UPI) -The San Francisco Warriors, down 2-0 in their best-of-seven playoff series with the Philadelphia 76ers for the National Basketball Association cham pionship, were hopeful today playing before the hometown fans in the third and fourth games will get them back in the running. But, with star point-maker Rick Barry hobbled by a sore ankle, Fred Hetzel at best a part-time performer and center Nat Thurmond bothered by a painful hip bruise, the Warriors need a near collapse by the 76ers to make that come true, starting with the third game at the Cow Palace tonight The fourth game also will be played at the Cow Palace on Thursday and a fifth game, if necessary, is scheduled for Sunday at Philadelphia's Con vention Hall, site of the first two games. The 76ers, called by many the best team ever in the pro ranks, used outstanding shooting to beat the Warriors in the first game of this set and then showed they are equally effective in a defensive type game to beat the Warriors last Sunday in the second game. Wilt Chamberlain, the former Warrior super star, has been a bear on defense in the playoffs. In Sunday s game, he picked off set a record and time and again turned away San Francisco shots which looked like sura baskets. Philadelphia won by 31 points, 126-95. "That was one of Wilt's best game s," said Fniiaaeipnia coach Alex Hannum, who last year was fired by the Warriors because he could not devote 12 months of the year to running the team. "I'd have to say his play has been the big difference." Bill Sharman, who replaced Hannum as San Francisco coach, said just about the same things about Wilt, whom he played against a few years ago. "Wilt simply killed us on the boards," said Sherman of the big center's performance in the first two games.

By EDWARD W. DOOLEY SALEM, N.H. (UPI) Duffy Lewis got around pretty well as a major league outfielder and a baseball executive. But it's much harder today, on his 79th birthday, because of a fall suffered just over a month ago. George Edward (Duffy) Lewis broke in as a rookie with the Boston Red Sox just 57 years ago. He retired from baseball at the age of 50 but was forced back into the game by the stock market crash and didn't surrender until just seven years ago. Lewis, who has needed a crutch to get around since a March 8 fall, is best remembered as traveling secretary of the Boston - Milwaukee Braves from 1936 to 1961 when he retired for a second time. It takes a really aged baseball fan to remember Lewis performing for the Red Sox as part of the famed Boston outfield with Tris Speaker and Harry Hooper. Only those who can recall the World Series of 1912, 1915 and 1916 could remember that Lewis compiled series batting averages of .444 and .353. It was a little tougher when I was playing," Lewis said in the Salem apartment where he resides with his wife, Eleanor, 72. "The travel was tougher.

"And these days they have three or four coaches helping the younger players. When I was breaking in, we had a tough time even getting to the plate for batting practice because the older guys would clique up to keep the younger guys away." Even so, Lewis has countless happy memories from a baseball career that included playing, coaching and working the business side. "I played with the Red Sox from 1910 to 1917 when I went into the service." On his return from Navy du ty, Lewis played with New York and Washington before his ma jor league career ended in 1921. Released to the former Salt Lake City Beers, he served as minor league manager and went to the Portland, Ore., club where he rose to the position of vice president. As it did to many, the depression brought Lewis out of re tirement, first as a coach for the then Boston Braves and later as a front official for that club. Rainbows In Lake Michigan! MM t-J A ft r-M -m 1 jrm I .-. -a.- They By SYD HERMAN Of The Manitowoc Herald Times MANITOWOC (AP) - Lake run rainbow trout ranging up to almost 40 inches in length and weighing anywhere from 2 to 12 pounds each will be available to Lake Michigan fishermen this summer. Wisconsin Conservation Department fisheries crews shocking the West Twin River with portable electric shockers at the village of Shoto in Manitowoc County turned up 27 Wisconsin stealheads the size of salmon in a block-long stretch of the river where it passes under County Highway Q. The largest went 284 inches and weighed almost nine pounds. One was spotted which conservation personnel estimated at almost 40 inches. All were fin - clipped for identification when planted, and lifts showed fish which had been planted 10 months ago when they were seven inches long and weighed less than four ounces now measure 19 inches and weigh four pounds. Fish of( that same size and weight when planted in 1964 now weigh 10 pounds. About 25 trouts, the largest 25 inches, also were turned up by the shocker in tiny Molarsch Creek which trickles into Lake Michigan through Point Beach Stale Forest near Two Rivers. Largest trout recorded this year was one caught by a hook and line fisherman at the mouth of Whitefish Bay Creek in Door TOR ATOM?

Fisheries man Lawrence Weigert of the Green Bay staff of the Wisconsin Conservation Department says he caught a 10 pound, 25 inch rainbow in the Sturgeon Bay boat canal last July and after cutting through an inch and a half of belly-fat he found 39 alewife in the trout's stomach. Females caught thus far are heavy with eggs and ripe but most of these eggs will not hatch, biologists say, due to unfavorable stream conditions.
