Sunday, Moy 18, 1969 3C Alcindor Grows It was either Will Shakespeare or Charles Dickens who laid of a man, "Nothing he did in life so became him as the leaving of it," It was Dickens' Sydney Carton who said, "Tis a far, far better thing I do than I have ever done." I was, perhaps unfairly, reminded of these aphorixmas the other day with the passing of Ferdinand Lewis Alcindor from the collegiate basketball scene. You will recall when Lew was first recruited here lie was chagrined to find that part of the package didn't include the riht to pick the governor. Ho was 18 or 19 years old at the time and the taxpayers of the state of California had gone to a good deal of expense to provide a suitable academic and athletic environment for him to refine his talent for blocking basketballs into a million-dollar property. Lew's gratitude knew bounds. The state, he told the press, was "phony." Thankfully, the free election process he was crilizing survived it. After all, there were 2,702,648 voters who felt exactly the same way he did about the election and, of the 3,668,546 phonies who disagreed, a sufficient number of them wanted to beat. Houston. Still, a number of us waited confidently for the day when they would find Lew Alcindor's bed hadn't been slept in the night before and his footprints were found headed east or north, and there would be a note on the pillow saying, "Goodby, California, and your dawn red geraniums!" I saw UCLA as trying to keep a volcano dormant with a manhole cover. Lew, quite frankly, proved to be a man of more stubborn pride than I had pegged him for. He had a lot of Iowa Republican in him for a New York street kid. He criticized but he didn't desert. He signed on for the duration. Cal Lost . . . To show you the opposite, the Univeristy of California recruited a skyscraping center of its own after he had run out of high schools in Detroit, and, before he'd gotten through with the university, he had gotten rid of not only the basketball coach but the athletic director, when last seen, he was on his way to a $300,000 contract with a semipro outfit in Denver. You can sec, all things considered, where Lew Alcindor acted with considerable restraint, considering the avenues open to him. Having completed his college eligibility and demonstrated a dependability not often found in young super-athletes, the next scene should have had Lew Alcindor playing one pro league against the other in contract negotiations, with a few Harlm Globetrotter officials sitting on the fire escape waiting. He could have said, "Gentlemen, we will begin the bidding with Rhode Island, now do I hear Delaware and New Jersey? Speak up, sir! 'Pennsylvania?' All right, the bidding is now at Rhode Island, New Jersey and Pennsylvania. Do I hear Texas? Kuwait?" The very least, I expected Lew to want to bring his own coach (or his own governor) and cither choose his own city or have one built for him. When Milwaukee won the toss, a lot of us liked to have fell down laughing. The only place with less chance, we thought, was Stone Mountain, Ga. Alcindor quietly said, "All right, if Milwaukee it is, here's my price. Match it and where do 1 sign?" He accepted the rules of a game a lot of us thought he would put himself above. He didn't put an armlock on anyone He acted like a guy who had been standing in line at the hiring hall all morning. Lew bowed out the other day with a short speech in which he said. "When you're younger, you have a tendency to be arrogant. But I feel I've grown in many ways since coming here." Fair enough, Lewis. Now, come back and see us, y hear? Whenever you get bored with all those real people back there, that is. Pants' Rowland Dies CHICAGO (AP)-Baseball pioneer Clarence "Pants" Rowland died Saturday from complications of old age at 91. Rowland's career encompassed that of a player, big league manager, scout, minor league pilot, president of the Pacific Coast League, major league umpire, part owner of a minor league club and an executive of the Chicago Cubs. At the time of his death, in a nursing home, he held the title of honorary vice president of the Cubs. Rowland was born in i'ht'.e-ville, Wis., but was raised in Dubuque, Iowa, later becoming manager of that city's entry in the old Three I League one ol COBLE'S FISHERMAN'S CALENDAR Time for Each Day, 'Tells Vlien Fish Bits Beit" FOR.

After doing some scouting for Charles A. Comiskey, owner of the White Sox, Rowland was hired as the club's manager late in 1914 from his job as skipper at Peoria, 111. By adding such players as Eddie Collins, Joe Jackson and Happy Felsch, the Sox, under Rowland, finished third in 1915 and second in 1916.

FINLEY, LEFT, BILL BARTHOLOMAY . . . baseball owners under investigation (Pensacela Newi-Jeirnal-AP Wlrephoto) Kuhn Sets Probe Of Casino Links WASHINGTON (AP) - Baseball Commissioner Bowie Kuhn promised Saturday an investigation of the stock ties of owners of the Atlanta Braves and Oakland Athletics with Las Vegas gambling casinos. Athletics owner Charles O. Finley acknowledged stock holdings in two firms involving five casinos in Las Vegas. Three Braves officials, including club president William C. Bartholomay, are listed in government records as directors of one of the firms, Parvin-Dohr- mann uo. Bartholomay confirmed slock ownership, but said, "I see no tie-m whatsoever with organized gambling." "Somebody is making a mountain out of a molehill." said Finley. Kuhn said, "PH certainly investigate this, but I can't make further comment until I know all the details." The Parvin-Dohrmann Co. owns the Fremont, Stardust and Aladdin hotels and casinos. Three of its seven directors Bartholomay, Dclbert W. Coleman, and John J. Louis Jr. are also on the Braves' board of directors. Nevada records list Finley as buying an estimated $2.7 million of stock in Parvin-Dohrmann last month. Nevada Gaming Control Board records also show 2,500 shares of Parvin-Dohrmann were bought last month by the University of Syracuse's endowment fund. Finley said he holds stock also in the Del Webb Corp., which he described as "a construction company . . . which owns casinos at the Sahara and the Mint at Las Vegas and at Lake Tahoe." The Athletics owners said, "When Mr. Webb owned the New York Yankees he owned the Sahara himself. My connection is nothing like that. I am not in the gambling business. What I have done is make a long-term investment." Finley said, "I know that several baseball owners own race horses and I would think that horse racing is closely affiliated with gambling. My stock holdings are nothing like that." Bartholomay suggested some baseball players also "might PGP SATURDAY NIGHT FIRST-N.C, Times: 31.15 Quin. $45.00 6 Erock 7.20 8.20 5.40 7 R.

'''' en a neck by Majestic Prince in the Kentucky Derby, the first of the Triple Crown races. The famous series for 3-year-olds concludes June 7 with the grueling IVi-mile Belmont Stakes, and a victory there would make McMahon's powerful chestnut the ninth Triple Crown winner in history. Trainer Johnny Longden, who handles Majestic Prince, also won a Derby and Preakncss as a jockey by scoring with Count Fleet in 1943. Count Fleet went on to win the Triple Crown. And if Majestic Prince docs the same, it would make Longden the first Triple Crown win ner both as a rider and a trainer. Hartack said he wasn't concerned about the front runners. "I was thinking mostly about getting position on the back-stretch," he said. "At the far turn, I let my horse out a notch and he easily went into the lead," Hartack told a national television audience before the foul claim was disallowed. "He was virtually loafing, and I let him loaf until the head of the stretch. "Then I got into him with some left-handed whipping and kept after him all the way be cause I knew those other horses would be coming at me, and my horse is inclined to ease up on the lead." Longden said he would wait and see how Majestic Prince came out of the race before making a definite decision on running in the Belmont. the held of eight broke evenly and then Greengrass Greene shot into the lead passing the stands for the first time. Glad s Flame was in front after the first quarter, and Greengrass Greene moved back in front where he remained through the first three quarter.

"Hartack stopped me going around the first turn. I had to steady my horse for quite a few strides. I think this cost me the race, It made a big difference." Presiding Steward J. Fred Col will said: "It happened at the first turn as Majestic Prince and Al Hat-tab were racing close together with Arts and Letters about a length or so back. Al Hattab came in and Majestic Prince came out slightly. "Baeza .seemed to sense it and eased back some and dropped down on the inside. I can't agree with Baeza that it cost him five or six lengths. But it didn't help him." Another Preakncss record was the mutuel pool of $812,049 for the race. Netsky Beats Morris For Florida Am Crown PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla.
