"I can do nothing more except to wait for that meeting," Nagel Said. "I feel some people have in this whole they may be been misguided affair,. and that minds when they hear all the facts." Nagel was relieved of his duties Tuesday at the same meeting during which the athletic board voted to accept the resignation of Athletic Director Forest Evashevski, both effective June 30. The actions culminated a four-month feud between the two men which reportedly grew out of Evashevski's dissatis/- Title Bout Tonight Maybe, Boxing Arena Is Not Done By CARLO BASSI UMAG, Yugoslavia (AP) Less than 48 hours before world middleweight champion Nino Benvenuti of Italy squares off in a title fight against Tom Bethea of New York, the boxing arena still isn't finished. Neither the promoiers nor the fighters' managers were speculating on a-postponement of the bout. Observers believed there was a good chance that barring unforeseen interruptions, the 60 workmen would complete the open-air arena in time. Another problem was ticket sales for the 7,000-seat arena. Asked how sales were going, one ticket' seller shook his head sadly and said, "Not too well." More than 1,000 tickets, it was reported, remained unsold. Promoters were counting on a last-minute flurry of buying from Italians living in or near Trieste, Benvenuti's hometown. The fight will be televised back to the United States via satellite and will be seen nationally on the Wide World of Sports, ABC, 5 p.m., EDT. Organizational · problems of the match did not appear to worry the boxers, both of whom declared themselves in top shape and confident of victory. Bethea, 26, who has never before fought 15 rounds, said He was fully prepared to go the distance but did not think he would need 15 rounds to whip Benven- uli.

Evashevski held a n e w s conference Thursday and told ·eporters he resigned because le didn't want to continue in .he job. He also reiterated his recommendation that Chalmers 'Bump" Elliott, assistant athletic director at the University of Michigan, should be lamed to the dual job of ath- etic director and football coach. Evashevski said charges against him by Nagel read 'like one big typographical error" and coupled his remarks with a plea that all parties cease the bickering that has rent the athletic department and turn their efforts to "picking up the pieces." 3.60: Advance Notice 7.80, 5.00; J.
