V J a a. t, , Trrrrrn" -tj ej I ej e 2C ST PETERSBURG TIMES THURSDAY, JANUARY 3, 1980 kCaStVJBB7kEBsJJBBB) King jailed, suspended for alleged sexual abuse Forward Barnard King was suspended indefinitely by the Utah Jazz after being arrested and booked into jail for investigation of alleged forcible sexual abuse in Salt Lake City Wednesday. Police said King was arrested at his apartment after a 25-year-old Salt Lake City woman told officers she was forced to perform a sexual act several times in a man's apartment Tuesday night. She said she waited until the man fell asleep, then fled and telephoned polios. A spokesman for the Jazz said the 23-year-old King was suspended indefinitely "pending further investigation of the alleged charges." Wednesday's arrest was King's second as a pro basketball player, but he had a string of five other arrests dating back to his sophomore year at Tennessee. Vilas retains Australian Open title Argentina's Guillermo Vilas won his second consecutive Australian Open tennis title Wednesday with a 7-6. 6-3, 6-2 victory over American John Sadri in Melbourne. The left-handed Vilas needed more than two hours to defeat Sadri, who entered the match with the possibility of a heavy fine for using abusive language in a quarterfinal match. Sadri had already been fined $250 Monday for his behavior. In the women's final, American Barbara Jordan downed countrywoman Sharon Walsh 6-3. 6-3 . . . Chris Evert Lloyd crushed Australian Dianne Fromhort z 6-1 , 6-4 Wednesday night in the first-round of the $250,000 Colgate Series tennis championships at Landover, Md. Earlier, Martina Navratilova and Evonne Googalong Cawley " coasted to easy victories in the eight-woman tournament. (Complete results, 2-C). Campbell returns to Oilers' drills Running back Earl Campbell, who missed the Houston Oilers' 17-14 playoff victory over the San Diego Chargers Saturday, returned to workouts Wednesday and said he was ready to run. He was listed as questionable on the Oilers' injury report as the team prepared for Sunday's American Conference championship game against the Pittsburgh Stealers. Devine vows to stay at Notre Dame Notre Dame football coach Dan Devine said Wednesday he has every intention of remaining as head coach of the Fighting Irish, adding he has not been offered nor has he sought another coaching job at another school. "I have read some stories that say I am in trouble at Notre Dame or that I am looking elsewhere," said Devine, "but as far as I know, those reports are groundless." Devine, whose Notre Dame contract expired on Jan. 1 , said he was not worried about having his pact renewed. Speculation concerning Devine's future arose after his team finished the year with a 7-4 record the worst by a Notre Dame team in 1 6 years and did not go to a bowl game. Devine said the rumors had hampered his recruiting efforts . . . Oklahoma coach Barry Switzer said Wednesday that he had no desire to coach in the National Football League. Asked if there were any collegiate fields left to conquer. Switzer replied, "Yes. We want to try to win another national championship." Added Switzer: "I'm not too interested in pro football. I think I've got a better job than any pro job." Stargell wins 'Sporting News' award Willie Stargell. the veteran slugger of the World Champion Pittsburgh Pirates, has been selected 1979 Man of the Year by The Sporting News, a weekly publication. The award, which encompasses all sports, was given to Stargell on the basis of his clutch hitting in the Pirates' pennant drive and their World Series triumph. The publication also called Stargell 'an inspiration to his teammates and a credit to baseball and all sports." Olympic boycott opposed by Killanin Lord Killanin, president of the International Olympic Committee, Wednesday pleaded for politicians to stay out of Olympic matters and his appeal was echoed by leading European sports administrators. Killanin's plea, in a statement issued from IOC headquarters in Switzerland, came less than 24 hours after NATO nations meeting in Brussels discussed a possible boycott of this summer's Moscow Olympics, a suggestion reportedly put forward by a West German representative. The boycott proposal, discussed at an emergency session of the 1 5-nation North Atlantic Treaty Organization Tuesday, was in response to the Soviet Union's invasion of Afghanistan, which has angered and alarmed Western politicians. Cardenal's jaw fractured Veteran New York Mets outfielder Jose Cardenal fractured his left jawbone in two places on Dec. 1 9 playing for La Guaira in the Venezuelan Winter League, the Mets announced Wednesday. A Mets spokesman said Cardenal was struck in the face with a ball thrown by an outfielder as he tried to score from third base. Cardenal flew to New York, and surgery was performed on Dec. 2 1 . The jaw was wired and will remain so for six weeks, the spokesman said, but the 36-year-old Cardenal will be ready for spring training. Bryant's wife hospitalized Mary Harmon Bryant, wife of Alabama football coach Bear Bryant, was hospitalized Wednesday in Tuscaloosa, Ala. She naa sun area two Diackouts Tuesday, preventing her from attending the Sugar Bowl game between Alabama and Arkansas. She was in a wheelchair Wednesday morning when she left a New Orleans hotel. It was the first time Bryant's wife had missed a bowl game involving her husband's team.

The media and the players were generally in favor of Steve. The media blasted Georgia for her lack of qualifications for running a professional football franchise, and the players gave Steve a game ball after one victory, a gesture seldom, if ever, made for a front-office executive. "I could just cry every time I think about this," Georgia told one reporter about her differences with Steve. "I thought that we loved each other. But I knew where I stood." GEORGIA REFUSES to discuss the situation now, and for a while, Steve grew silent about the feud. He would drive to games in hit camper and sit with the other fans. . But in the January issue of Lot Angeles magazine, Steve sounded off about what was going on with the Rams and what he felt about Georgia. "Georgia rarely if ever watched us drill, scarcely knew our scouts and wouldn't know a play-action pass from a fuzzy tennis ball," Steve was quoted as saying. The Rams players refused to take sides openly, but there was little doubt about their loyalties, for Steve had been close to them for years. While the front-office feuding was going on, the Rams skidded and soared, skidded and soared. They lost to the Giants in the Coliseum, then went to Seattle and held the Seahawks to minus seven yards of total offense. They lost to the Buccaneers 21-6 and later fell to 4-5. AND THEN THERE were enough injuries to make Malavasi tear out his white hair. Both starting cornerbacks were lost All-Pro tackle Doug France was lost, Quarterback Pat Haden was lost John Cappelletti and Ron Jessie were lost And it looked as if the season would be lost The Rams revived themselves long enough to win the NFC West for the seventh straight year, with a 9-7 record. And then they soared again, beating Dallas 21-19 with big plays and an innovative seven-defensive back defense last Sunday to advance to the NFC title game. Rama fans are waiting for their team to skid again, just as it's done the past sii years. But the Rama feel that, because they are where they are not supposed to be this season, a skid is unlikely. THE NEXT CHANGE for the Rams will come in the 1980 season, when they vacate the Coliseum for Anaheim Stadium, home of baseball's California Angels, in Anaheim. They have moved their offices from Long Beach into the shadow of Mickey Mouse and are separated from Los Angeles in every way except name. But what will happen after that? Stay tuned for the next episode fishing report Anglers brave cold but get few catches Tides, solunars, weather. For the record By JOE HARTMAN Bt, Petersburg Times Fishing Writer A touch of winter cooled inshore fishing in the Tampa Bay area Wednesday but the pressure was still there as tourist anglers more accustomed to lower temperatures than the 37-degree official reading amply filled in for the shivering stay-at-home locals. There were lota of people out fishing along the Skyway," said Allan Phillips of O'Neill's Skyway Boat Basin. "However, the fish wouldn't cooperate. All we saw was a few small catches of sheepshead." At Redington Long Pier, spokesman Don Rosenberger also reported a large crowd of visiting fishermen turned out dressed in shirts and shorts to catch fair numbers of whiting and some black drum. Early in the day, about daybreak, the night crew of pier regulars who fish in any kind of weather pulled in some nice-size speckled trout for a short time. Dave Mistretta of Indian Rocks Fish ing Pier reported that although the facility was full of thin-clad anglers most of the day, fishing was slow. The best they could do was hook a few whiting, drum and croaker, Mistretta noted. From Mullet Key's Andrew Potter Pier, Lillian Ernsberger said a large crowd of fishermen convened at the Fort De Soto Park facility and a few lucky ones pulled in mixed, small stringers of whiting, sheepshead, silver trout and drum. "But there were no specks caught Tuesday night," she went on to say. "Trout fishermen who were leaving the pier when we opened up early this morning told me it was the poorest night for specks they had seen in a long, long time." Slow, was how fishing was described along the Pinellas Bayway by Pam Davis of the Bait Bucket at Tierra Verde. "I don't know what the trouble was maybe it was the choppy water but we didnt see anything except a scattering of whiting, a few specks and some redfish. The reds, Davis said, all came from the channel at the rear of the island's convenience store. And at Snell Isle in upper Tampa Bay, only scattered catches of specks were reported by the crew of Bait Bucket II at the Snell Isle Marina. Although most boats going offshore in the Gulf of Mexico came in with some grouper, the best catch to come to light approximately 400 pounds of large black grouper was pulled aboard the charter boat Ltut Dime II, skippered by Capt Norm Larsh out of the Charter Boat Center at Madeira Beach.
