There was the Ali who signaled that Dunn's time had come at the start of the final round, and the Ali who walked wooden- legged toward the Englishman, his arms stretched out in front of him like a Frankenstein monster. Yet Ali was changed - "a totally different Ali," he said himself — a harder puncher than before, perhaps, but a fighter increasingly rooted in the canvas. It was also an Ali who frequently crossed his legs awr- kardly during the first three rounds, took a series of stiff right jabs from the left-handed Englishman in the third round and seemed markedly slower and less mobile than the fighter who floated like a butterfly and stung like a bee. "He's missing; the reflexes have gone back; he should retire," said Duane Bobick after he saw Alj in training. Bobick won his 36th-straight fight in the Olympiahalle, just before Ali's victory, knocking out Bunny Johnson of England. But Ali didn't seem to be paying any immediate attention. He insisted on talking about new trick karate punches and promised to jog five miles Tuesday, preparing for an exhibition in Tokyo next month and the fight against Ken Norton in Yankee Stadium next September which should bring him J9 million. Through Dum, Ali showed that he could erase the memory of the fal, sluggish M year old »ho nearly lost a monih ago against Jimmy Young, a fighter who had knocked Dunn out in 19H. The champion weighed 220 pounds, down 10 from the Young fight, and his body had some of its old muscle tone. Even so, Ali Has breathing hard after the first round, and he found Dum a much tougher fighter than he imagined. "He was right in on me, making me work and do my best," Ali said of the Englishman. "I did the rope-a-dope a couple of times, and it came in real handy, because it saved me some work. "Dunn was much better than Battlers, Rockets lose bid in District play PERHAM - "I guess when you get beat by a good team it ba't so bad," said Underwood coach Karl Beck following his eld's 12-2 loss to a strong Audubon nine in District 23 at Perham Monday. In the second game of the semifinals Battle Lake carried a W lead going into the bottom of the sixth and saw that lead disappear when Glyndon- Felton scored two runs for a 6-5 victory. In the championship District 23 game, Audubon held off a sixth-inning Glyndon-Fellon rally en route to winning the championship 4-3. Audubon, led by pitcher Dean EEertson and Motschenbacher, won their 'game in six innings. Underwood's Jerry Bolstad and Dennis Schmidt scored in the fifth frame saving a shutout In the Battle Lake - Glyndon game the Battlers took an early W lead when Joe Papa drew a walk, stole second and scored on an infield error. Glyndon came back with two the first baseman's bead scoring Borg and Gary Kelm doubled in Bjorkhind and Carr giving the Battlers a 5-4 lead.

"I feel great" Campaneris was lirown out at second by rookie catcher BOSTON <AP) - The Boston Celtics, long known for their racehorse offense, now are gaining a reputation for their defensive prowess. The Celtics, leading the Phoenix Suns 1-0 in their nationally televised best-of- seven National Basketball Association championship series and seeking their 13th league title since 1957, are in that position more because of their defense than their offense. In 13 playoff games so far this season — six each against Buffalo and Cleveland, and Sunday's 9M7 victory over Phoenix — they have held the Fergus women's slow-pitch softball schedule WDMETSSLOW PITCH iOFTIALLICHEOULE Krontmtn w) H^nlscfi Kvu Ljntim n 7-Up Orttr TlU Pnm n Porn 4 Co. wcsltrn MJnn n Ekclre Lux vklor L«nl«tn n $<fvice Food opposition under 100 points 10 tinws and 'under 90 in five games. Their average yield has been 96.1 points per game. That is well below the Celtics' season average at 1B3.9—siab best in the league — and also below the Chicago Bulls' figure of 98.8, lowest in the NBA. Meanwhile, Boston's usually potent offense, which averaged 106.2 points during the regular season, has sputtered, mainly due to injuries to fast-break leader John Haviicelr. In their last six playoK games, the Celtics have not reached the 100- point mark, but they have won four of them. Their over-all scoring average for 13 playoff games is 99.3. Recently, the Celtics, who prefer to run, have been forced to play a deliberate, patterned offense. "We're not a pattern, set-up basketball team," said Coach Tom Hetnsohn." If we could run and fast break, I'd feel a lot better. But the fact is that we don't have the people who can •run. Havlicek has that injury (torn muscles in his left foot) and (Don) Nelson and (Steve) Kuberski haven't got good speed. The fact that we can't run right now worries me, because Phoenii is a real good ball dub." OAKLAND (AP| - The running Oakland A's, led by Campy.Campaaem 1 five stolen bases, finally found a victory at the finish line. "Campy's tegs sparked us.

Ali acknowledged that Dunn had hurt him twice, and said he considered Ihe Englishman, who dreamed he would beat the champion in the eighth round, merited a return match. Dunn said at first in the ring that he thought the decision of the German referee to slop the fight was too quick, but with reflection the former construction worker said in his dressing room, "1 wouldn't challenge the ref's decision. He's (he boss, and I'm ?nly the foreman, but I thought it could have gone on a bil." Ali, who shelled out HOC 000 to buy 2,000 seats for American servicemen, got a message of thanks from President Ford for the gesture.

And most importantly, he said he felt u'UIe pain in the foot afterward. ' In addition to Havlicek, the Celtics are hoping that two other regular starters, guard Charlie Scott and center Dave Cowens, regain top pbyskal health during the three-day layoff between Games One and Two. Both players departed early from Monday's practice. Scott, who had been suffering from an upset stomach for a couple of days, worked out briefly before leaving. Cowens, the Ceffics" most productive player in the opening game with 25 points, 21 rebounds and ID assists, didn't even practice.

MUNICH (AP) - Two Bowlus, Minn., brothers scored victories Monday night in preliminary boxing matches to the Muhammad Ali-Richard Dunn heavyweight title boat in Munich. Duane Bobick scored a ninth- round TKO over Bunny Johnson, and Rodney Bobick scored a third-round knockout with a short right over Hartmut Sasse of Betiin. Duane, who weighed 209 pounds, dropped Johnson in the second round with a Wt-right combination, but the Briton managed to use his speed to duck away from trouble in the next four rounds. Duane's body ' punches started to take their toll in the seventh round, keeping the 1M- pound Johnson against the ropes. In the eighth round, Duane battered Johnson with body punches that left him exhausted and nearly defenseless at the bell. Johnson failed to answer the bell for the ninth round. Rodney, who weighed 230 pounds, was a sparring partner for Ali during training. Fwdrf DTfwnpwm 1 HQrtncf 1 Cmpntf rtis 0 MAIuxirpr 9 Bande* 6 CWsngtnrl 0 G&ratrn nrMU 4. O&k-ard *. 33— Rufl".

This-year he's found the range. "A trivia question: Who's leading this club in home runs?" asked Montreal's Nate Colbert after the Expos defeated the Pittsburgh Pirates 42 Monday night "The answer," Colbert said, "is Foli with four." In his first five years, the Montreal shortstop hit a grand total of five roundtrippers, his biggest season prior to this being W1 when he had three. In other National League games Monday, Philadelphia downed the New York Mets 7-1, San Francisco stopped Houston W and San Diego blanked Los Angeles 2-0, Foil's fifth-inning homer caim one pilch after Pittsburgh pitcher John Candelaria walked Larry Fairish. That tied the score at 2-2 and Mon- treal catcher Barry Foote untied it an out later when he lined his first home run of the season over the left field fence. "Candelaria was giving us a lot of fast balls, and we just, happened to get two home runs v off him," said Foote. The Expos added a single run in the seventh to give pitcher Woody Fryman his sixth victory of the season against two losses. nWtt 7, Mets 1 "I was a lucky pitcher," said Philadelphia's Larry Christenson after he scattered seven hits to beat the New York Mets. "I was just throwing the ball over the plate and challenging them to hit it at somebody ... I'm not here to be a strieoat pitcher. I'm here to win. And that's all Out counts." Greg Luiinski's first inning Iwcmm homer gave Christenson a quick 2-0 lead, and the the Phillies added four more in the stcond — all unearned because of an error by Mets loser Mickey Lolkti, . The Mets' lone run came in the ninth on John Milner's triple and Joe Torre's RBI single. Omits 5, Astns! Rook* Larry Herndon belted his first major league homer and scored twice to lead San Francisco Jo its victory over Houston. Herndon had a leadoff walk that triggered a three-run first inning off loser Mike Cosgrove, 1-3, then smacked his roundtripper in the second. The hot-hitting rookie finished with three hits L lift his average to .471. The Giants' Rob Dressier, 11, who needed relief help from Gary Lavelie, gave ty an unearned run in the second on Ease CabeU's twcMXit single, a stolen base and Chris Speier's throwing error. It was the first time in a month that San Francisco has won two games in a row. Padrest, Dodgers! Making his first start since bemg called up from the minors list week, San Diego righthander Dave Freisleben tossed a six-hit shutout over Los Angeles. The loss snapped a Dodgers six-game winning Freisleben, 0-1, stranded seven Dodger runners while going the distance. Doug Rader singled home Merv Rettenmund in the first inning and Willie Davis 1 sacrifice fly in the fifth sent Erao Hernandez home with an insurance run.
