Delta Futurity attracts classy field VINTON, La.-Five of the finest juvenile quarter horses on the national circuit, including an Ail-American Futurity finalist, meet ui a 440-yard showdown tonight in the prestigious $97,500 Delta Downs Futurity. Chautos, who has collected an impressive $82,229 in his brief career, first made a name for himself at Ruidcso Downs last rammer by placing third in the Rainbow Futurity. Then came the trials for the $1 million All-American and Chautos placed second to Easy Date. He couldn't get rolling in the finale, however, and finished eighth, Despite these impressive credentials, Chautos nanaged only the eighth fastest time in the Delta Downs' trials and thus has been rated as only the second pre-post favorite. The early nod goes to Texas-bred Vittoro, owned by J. T. White of Stowell. In 10 starts the impressive colt has garnered eight wins, one second and a third for total earnings of $58,361. Although Vittoro's qualifying time of 20.52 seconds was only second best behind Dial Easy Tarn, the latter has netted only five wins in 15 starts and earned just under $30,000, marking the filly as the third betting pick. Another filly Rockadot is also expected to make a strong bid for the $43,875 first place money in the 440-yard showdown. In addition to two fine showings at Ruidoso, the two-year-old lassie also fared well in the Sportsman's Paradise Futurity, placing third to Mighty MecKay and Madam Foot. Mighty Mackay, winner of four of six starts.is the fifth strong contender in the 10-horse field. Bought by W. A. Darling of Opelousas, La., Mighty MacKay has a current bankroll of $33,440. The reniainder of the classy field includes Rogue Roman, Mitzie Yochum, Lady Barlander, Jets Pay Day and Oh Minnie Oh. Delta Downs Saturday, November 30,1914 THE NEWS, Port Arthur. Te«*-U Across the road 'longdistance* in Oklahoma town JAMES SHADDOCK Ali wants both Joe, Foreman at same time 'Cinderella Man' dies at age 68 NORTH BERGEN, N.J. (UPI) - James J. Brcddock, the one-time "Cinderella Man" whose defeat of Max Baer for the title in 1935 still ranks as the greatest upset in heavyweight championship history, died Friday of natural causes. He was 68. Braddock, the last of the Irish heavyweight champs and a member' of Boxing's Hall of Fame, had 85 professional bouts during his 17-year career, winning 51 including 26 by knockout. A 101 underdog when he decisioned Baer for the heavyweight titk on Jsse 13, 1935, Braddock lost his title to Joe Louis by a knockout on June 22. 1937. Born on Dec. 6, 1905, in New York City of Irish-American parents, Braddock's rise to the heavyweight championship is regarded as one of the most dramatic comeback stories in modern ring annals. A promising young light- heavyweight who had lost to Tommy Lcughran for the light-heavy title. LONDON (UPI)--Singing his familiar cry of "I'm the greatest," Muhammad Ali arrived in London Friday for his five-day talkabout. And being Ali, the talk was mostly about himself, "It's hard to be humble when you are as great as I am," the sleek 32-year-old world heavyweight champion said. No human on earth was going to beat him at the moment, Ali said. "If I thought 1 was going to be beat I would get out but no one is going to do that." Ali boxed cleverly when asked the opponent for his first title defense since recapturing the crown from George Foreman in Zaire four weeks ago. He said he had received a $10 million offer to defend his title, but would not enlarge on that. "What I want is a $15 million offer to fight Joe Frazier and George Foreman In one night," he said. "Some country somewhere would be willing to put that up and I would then convince everyone, including all the doubters in England, that I am the king of all kings." Ali said Britain's European champion Joe Bugner was also in the reckoning for a world- title bid. "I am not satisfied because I never knocked out Bugner," said Ali, who outpointed Bugner over 12 rounds in Las Vegas two years ago. "Joe Frazier couldn't knock out Bugner either and that is an insult to two great punchers. I consider that was a defeat. I won't be satisfied until I have knocked him out" The champion described Bugoer as the best white heavyweight in the world. "Bugner is a top contender rated number four in the world. He is a natural, has the light complexion and the right connections." But Ali denied complexions had anything to do with a fight against Bugner raising the necessary asking price of around $10 million. "That does not come into it now.

You oiow when you are in the desert and you think /ou see water and you rush to it and all you ;et is a mouthful of sand." Ali said he thought he would continue wring for another four years until he was 36. "There is no man who is going to whup me aver the distance. I may retire when the time comes when I think I might get beaten. "The only way I could be beaten would be for someone to catch me with a lucky punch in the fourth or fifth round. No one is going to outmove or outbox me. No one on this planet," he said. For 40 minutes, Ali talked non-stop at Friday's news conference. There was no stalling him. The champion even shrugged aside Jarvis Astaire, promoter of the tour, who was worried that Ali would lose his voice like he did in Zaire. "Don't you worry me," said Ali, posing for the battery of TV and press cameras. "I can talk all night." He was finally cut short, but not before he had answered a question about his philosophy of life. "If a man looks at the world when he is 50 the same way he looked at it when he was 20 and it hasn't changed, then he has wasted 30 years of his life,' 1 he said. Mi was scheduled for another talk-in at a London cinema later Friday followed by some TV interviews. He will attend several other receptions during his visit in addition to watching boxing at the Hilton Hotel Monday and being at the Royal Albert Hall ringside Tuesday to see Bugner fight American Boone Kirkman.

Two months ago, it was Noll who predicted that the Oilers "were a good team" who would "win some games" before the season was over. Noll's prediction held up. After losing to Minnesota, the Oilers regrouped and won their next four games, and only last week lost to Dallas on a disputed touchdown and a field goal. The Steelers hold a Ufc-game lead over the Cincinnati Ben- gals in the AFC Central Divison and they could clinch their second championship in three years if they defeat Houston and the Miami Dolphins whip the Bengals in a Monday night game.

(UPI) The population of Pocok is only 2,200, but it takes a long distance call to reach someone across town. The northern part of the community is served by Southwestern BeU Telephone Co. and the southern part by Allied Telephone Co. A long distance toll is required to call from one system to the other, perhaps just across the road. Mayor John Farris, who works for Southwestern Bell in nearby Fort Smith, Ark., as a lineman, says he doesn't care which telephone company handles the town, so long u the service is the same for both sides of town. He said the biggest problem is police protection. "Half the town has to go through ihs operator and make a long distance call to the police. Then they can't always get through," he explained.

But you may be shocked into sobriety once you get inside. At least that's the aim of the New Hope's proprietors. The New Hope is a drop-in facility for drinkers. More than 125,000 have stopped there since it opened 16 months ago. A stranger in town, seeing the big "Saloon" sign, is in for a surprise when he gets to the bar. The spacious hall has benches, chairs and stools at a barlike table. Its patrons sit around, sipping juice or coffee from paper cups. "We're in the business of screening and counselling the street drinker," says Keith Lewis, head of saloon's staff of six. "We want to find out his indivudal needs and problems. We can refer him or her to the n u m e r o u s s e r v i c e s available." The drinker may be sent to a more intensive detoxification center, to a clinic for medical care, or some place where he can get a bed for the night if he needs it. There are those who just want to take a shower and nap for a while before going home 1 after a bout on the town. The New Hope Saloon welcomes Lynn Armstrong, another of the staff members.

Policy favoring minority medical applicants nixed WOODLAND, Calif. rtJPI) -- A University of California policy favoring minority applicants for medical school is unconstitutional, a local judge has ruled.
