P»ge 2B NEWS-HERALD, Panama City, Fla., Saturday, June 22,1974 All-Stars Vie Tonight LUBBOCK, Tex. (UPI) Amid a lot of concern over their immediate future and at least a little concern over the temperature, a group of the best graduated college players in the country meet Saturday night in the first football game of the season. It is the Coaches All-America game, an affair that started in Buffalo 13 years ago, moved to Atlanta in 1966 and finally.came to this West Texas city in 1970 where it has been conducted before near capacity crowds. More than 40,000 at Jones Stadium and a national television audience will see Saturday night's game. The game itself has been the third most popular topic of discussion among the players this year. The top two concern the potential National Football Leaguue Players Association strike and the differences between their NFL or WFL contracts. Players who have signed with the NFL —and they are in the ' vast majority at this game — are faced with having to decide whether to report to their training camps if a strike is called. And they admit to a lot of indecision. "It's hard on us," said USC's Lynn Swann, who will play flanker for the West squad of Coach Barry Switzer Saturday night. "I think we are probably the first group of rookies to ever have exactly this kind of problem." But another problem all of the players must face is the heat, which could climb to more than 100 degrees on the artificial surface of the Texas Tech stadium before kickoff at 7:30 p.m. CDT. "The heat is affecting them some," said East Coach Johnny Majors of Pittsburgh. "We had only one afternoon practice on that astroturf, but it was the Soccer Players Threatened FRANKFURT, Germany (UPI) — Threats to the lives of two Scottish players Friday and the warning of a rocket attack on Hamburg's Volkspark stadium brought fresh fear of a disaster to the World Soccer Cup tournament. Police said a threat from the Irish Republican Army (IRA) to assassinate two unnamed protestant Scottish players had been received. A spokesman for the Scottish team said the threat was being taken "very seriously" at their training quarters 12 miles outside Frankfurt. At the Hamburg stadium more than 1,000 police will be on duty Saturday night when East and West Germany meet on the Tyndall Rider Cops Laurels Doreen Godfrey, Tyndall Saddle Club, won three first places, three seconds, a third and fourth and two high point trophies in the Wood-o-Pine horse show at' Chipley. Tigers Travel Tyndall's Tiger fast pitch sot- tball team will play a pair of double headers this weekend at Keesler Air Force Base, Mississippi. soccer field for the first time. The Baader-Meinhof urban guerrilla group has threatened to attack the stadium with rockets in a protest against the government and the normalization of relations between the two countries. "We have received threats the stadium would be blown up and we have taken our measures," said a police spokesman. These included extra police, armored cars, helicopters and special radar beacons to track possible incoming rockets. The East vs. West Germany game was one of four vital matches scheduled for Saturday in which six teams will be fighting for three places in the second final round. The East Germans need a victory or tie to make sure they qualify in Group One. A loss will open the door to Chile which was expected to defeat Australia in Berlin's Olympic stadium. In Group Two, Brazil faced Zaire in Gelsenkirchen and Scotland, in a game it had to win to make sure of qualification, met group leader Yugoslavia in Frankfurt. A tie for the Scots would eliminate them if Brazil, as expected, defeated the africans by more than two goals. hottest place in town." Both squads have been holding evening workouts during the week leading up to the game, but even then the field is still hot. "By the fourth quarter there are going to be a lot of wilted players out there," said Bill Sandlfer, a 6-6,230-pound defensive lineman from UCLA. "We only have five linemen here for this game so we are going to have to play almost every defensive down." The coaches plan to substitute as much as possible because of the heat, so the crowd should have a good look at all the quarterbacks —San Diego State's Jesse Freitas and Texas Tech's Joe Barnes for the West along with Andy Johnson of Georgia, Carl Summerell of East Carolina and Norris Weese of Mississippi for the East. The West leads the series, 76, after capturing last year's game. 20-6. Cubs Clip Bucs Again CHICAGO (UPI) - Jerry Morales, returning to the starting lineup after four days on the bench, batted in two runs with a homer and a single Friday to help Steve Stone and the Chicago Cubs to a 3-2 triumph over the Pittsburgh Pirates. The loss was the second straight for the Pirates after a six-game winning streak. Stone, earning his second victory in seven decisions, equalled the season high for strikeouts by a Cubs pitcher with 10 before he gave way to reliever Oscar Zamora after Richie Hebner singled to open the eighth. Al Oliver hit into a double play on Zamora's fourth pitch, but Willie Stargell followed with his 11th homer for the Pirates' second run.

NBA Gives Toronto Franchise NEW YORK (UPI) — Com- alignment again, mlssloner Walter Kennedy's No price tag was set on the long range plan of a world-wide Toronto franchise, nor was a National Basketball' specific group selected as the Association reached its first stage of fulfillment Friday when the league's Board of Governors voted to expand into Canada with a Toronto franchise for the 1975-76 season. The expansion vote was the second in recent months. New Orleans Jazz paid $6115 million to field a team for the coming season. Kennedy said a 20th team could conceivably be franchised within the next year to bring the NBA into a balanced buyer. There is also the question of indemnity which Buffalo will most certainly demand since Toronto is only an hour's drive from the Braves' home arena. Harold Ballard, owner of the Maple Leaf Gardens in Toronto, says he has the Inside track on the new franchise. Buffalo played nine games at his sports place last year and had an average attendance of 7,600. The largest crowd to see a game was the 13,306 that showed up for a game with the New York Knlcks. "Where else can they play?" Ballard asked. Ballard formally applied for a franchise at the last NBA meetings in Seattle and posted a ,$50,000 bond as a guarantee for fielding a team. "They have all our credentials and I have been after them to know what was happening." said a jubilant Ballard. "This is probably It." NBA owners, climaxing a four-day meeting here, wasted no time in picking Toronto when Sq u i res' Sale Ap p roved LOUISVILLE, Ky. (UPI) The American Basketball Asoclatlon Friday approved the sale of the Virginia Squires franchise to a grouup of Norfolk businessmen, headed by banker John Bernhardt. No terms were disclosed. The franchise had been taken over by the league from financially- beset owner Earl Foreman. That informed source told UPI that the San Diego Conquistadors have obtained a 15,000-seat arena for their games next season in San Diego from Peter Graham, removing the possiblity that Dr. Leonard Bloom would move his franchise to Los Angeles in direct competition with the NBA Lakers. Bloom, who said he was "elated" over the new league, also announced the signing of Major Jones from Albany State College. Jones' brother, Caldwell Jones, was the starting center for San Diego last season. BSD°"#«CURUE andhisCUN ST. LOUIS, Mo.

Smith Back On Track NOTTINGHAM, England (UPI) — Two weeks ago, Stan Smith of Sea Pines, S.C., was ready to write off his chances of regaining the Wimbledon Lawn Tennis title he won in 1972.

Colncldentally, Ballard "received 17 season ticket applications just this morning" for the two exhibition and six regular season games the Braves will play in Toronto during 1974-75. A Buffalo spokesman said an expansion steering committee would be organized to decide on the group that gets the Toronto franchise. Braves owner Paul Snyder then will meet with the new management to discuss the payment of indemnities. The Braves have been drawling most of their fans from the 60-mile stretch between Toronto and Buffalo, especially from such cities as Hamilton and Kingston. This will be the NBA's second tour of Toronto, a charter member of the NBA. The first league game was played in the Canadian city when the Toronto Huskies met the Knicks on Nov. 1, 1946.
