Kayo In 2nd Round Frazier Stops Foster DETROIT (AP) - Joe Fra zier is a deadly puncher like such great heavyweights as Jack Dempsey, Joe Louis and Rocky Marciano but until he beats Muhammad Ali he will be a pretender rather than a king to boxing fans. Frazier put his skills on display Wednesday night and was impressive as he knocked out light heavyweight champion Bob Foster in two rounds in his first title defense since he knocked out Jimmy Ellis last February. But lacking was the daily increase in tension and the howling mob that usually makes attendance at a heavyweight championship fight a memorable experience. Never did the fight excite the sporting public as did a fight like Marciano-Jersey Joe Walcott or Ali's return to the ring against Jerry Quarry. And a crowd of only 6,300 — second to the Ali-Sonny Listen fight in Lewiston, Maine in 1965 as the smallest heavyweight title turnout in modern history- showed up at 12,500-seat Cobo Arena for the feature half of the closed-circuit television doubleheader. Unbeaten heavyweight George Foreman stopped Boone Kirkman in two rounds in the opener in New York's Madison Square Garden. But the Frazier victory cleared another block to a fight that has surpassed the boundaries of the sports world in catching the fancy of people — a fight with Ali. When asked if he considered the Foster fight a tune-up for Ali, also known as Cassius Clay, Foster said: "I was ready for Foster as I would have been for Ma-Ma (a reference to Ali)." "I'm not balking . about any fights for about three weeks," said Frazier's manager, Yank Durham, who then mentioned New York, Houston and Philadelphia as possible sites for a Timet Herald, Carroll, la. Thursday, Nov. 19, 1970 Frazier-Ali fight which could be in February. "We will get together and talk," said Durham who added, "He might want more money than I want and then there wouldn't be any fight." "I want Joe Frazier," Ali shouted after watching the bout on closed circuit television in Atlanta where he defeated Quarry last month in his first fight since he was stripped of his heavyweight title for refusing induction into the Army. "Clay's not gona take the pressure that Joe's gonna put on him," said Foster . Promoters feel that people want so much to see whether Ali can take Frazier's pressure or whether Frazier really is what his title says that a fight between the two would be the most lucrative in history- grossing up to $10 million. The next block to the dream fight is Oscar Bonavena, the brawling Argentine who will fight Ali Dec. 7 in Madison Square Garden. There also is the five-year prison sentence that went with Ali's conviction, a conviction which still is being appealed. The U.S. Supreme Court has been asked by the Justice Department to act on the appeal wilthin the next 90 days.

(AP) - Illinois, still hampered by a continuous string of injuries, closes out its Big Ten football season at Iowa Saturday with the coaches of both teams apparently on their way out. Ray Nagel of Iowa was given this season to produce or else. Iowa has a 2-3-1 conference mark and 2-6-1 for the season. Illinois is worse — 1-5 and 3-6. Jim Valek of Illinois was fired a month ago then reinstated when his players threatened to strike. Saturday undoubtedly will be bis last game for Illinois. Iowa was mowed down by Michigan 55-0 last week while Illinois lost to Wisconsin 29-17 as the Badgers rallied for two touchdowns in the last quarter. The week previously, Michigan dispatched the Mini 42-0. "Iowa ran into the same buzz- saw as we did," says Valek, who refuses to discuss his coasting holt seat. "Iowa gave Michigan the breaks early which just can't be done against that kind of team. "I think our game at Iowa is a toss up. We just hope we can get some of our injured players ready to go in their regular po sitions instead of being forced to do more juggling of the line ups." Jim Brown, who scouted the Iowa-Michigan game, says the Hawkeyes "have a fine off en sive backfield and Levi Mitchell is one of the best runing backs in the conference. Tim Sullivan is a fine fullback. But Iowa has had problems with its defense, mostly because of injuries." Valek praised the running of sophomore Willie Osley and the pass-catching of senior co-cap­ tain Doug Dieken against Wisconsin. He also said the running and pass receiving of little-used senior Bob Burns is improving. Defensive starters Tab Bennett, Norm Cooper and Dan Rotzoll still remain doubtful for Saturday because of injuries. They have missed two games. Joining them are defensive end Jim Rucks and linebacker Larry Allen. Middle guard Bob Bucklin and defensive back John Graham were hurt Saturday but probably will play. Darrell Robinson, leading rusher, carried only seven times for 34 yards against the Badgers because of a strained knee. He has been averaging 20 or 30 carries a game and has a rushing total of 655 yards. Whether he will be able to go full steam again is questionable. For the season, Illinois has yielded 1,704 yards rushing to opponents while gaining 1,336 themselves. The Illini also have been hit for 1,379 aerial yards while making 822. Sophomore Mike Navarro is the second leading rusher with 321 yards in 78 trips.

"Their offense is geared to ball control," he said Wednesday. "Against teams like Oklahoma State, Iowa State and Kansas State, who threw the ball a lot, you figure to get the ball a few times through unscheduled means such as pass interceptions." "But a team like Oklahoma," he added, "you've just got to stop them on defense or hope they'll fumble. This is the first ball control type team we've faced since we played Colorado." At Oklahoma, Coach Chuck Fairbanks made two defensive changes. Linebacker Steve Casteel, injured since the Texas game, went back to his starting position, and strong-side line backer Jon Mil stead was moved up to the first team. Fairbanks said the Sooners had a good practice and showed a lot of enthusiasm and were much sharper on their assignments."

Iowa State—The Cyleones put the final touches on their game plan for Oklahoma State. Ken Caratelli regained his first team defensive spot at right linebacker from Steve Jacobsen. Oklahoma State—The Cowboys went through a tough practice because, as Coach Floyd Gass put it, "the coaches felt the team needed the work." Two defensive starters are doubtful, back Gene Jefferson and linebacker Joe Crews, both with injuries. Cellar At Stake For ISU-Pokes STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) Oklahoma State and Iowa State, with little at stake but pride, meet at 1:30 p.m. Saturday to find who will finish last in the Big Eight Conference football race. The host Cowboys, 3-6 for the full season, own a 1-4 league record. The Cyclones, 4-5 overall, are 1-5 in the con- ferene. Because of the home field advantage, Oklahoma State will be a slight favorite. But, Iowa State stunned Missouri last week, 3119, and the Cyclones, in Coach Johnny Majors' words, "want the one at Stillwater real bad." Oklahoma State has been bothered by injuries in recent weeks, and at least four starters may not be able to play. Another handful were unable to practice at full speed during the week beause of less serious injuries. The Cowboys had an unusual, hard-hitting work-out Wednesday. "We don't normally have this much hitting this late in the week," said Coach Floyd Gass, "but the coaches felt the team needed the work." Gass also announed he has made some offensive line changes. Starting tackle David Gaile has been moved to left guard. Dan Blackard and Bob Bridges are working at the starting tackle positions. Only defensive back Gene Jefferson and linebacker Joe Crews remained on the doubtful starter list because of injuries. "Everyone else looks like they may play if everything goes right, " said Gass. "Most of the other starters haven't been able to practice at all this week." Jockey Garth Patterson won Monmouth Park stakes races last summer with Kilts N Kapers and Extravehicular within four days.

LIFE • BUSINESS • HOME • CAR Federated INSURANCE OWATONNA, MINNESOTA Former Browns Testify: In Pro Football Probe CLEVELAND, Ohio (AP) Bernie Parrish, former defensive back with the Cleveland Browns, was to resume his testimony today before a special federal grand jury probing for possible antitrust violations in operations of the National Football League. Parrish, who is director of Teamsters Union health and medical program in St. Louis, was called before the jury Wednesday afternoon following testimony by Ross Fichtner, another former Browns defensive back. The jury recessed for the day after questioning Parrish for an hour and 45 minutes and instructed him to return at 10 a.m. today. Parrish, 34, told newsmen he could not comment on questions put to him by the jury until he had completed his testimony. "I was puzzled when I received the subpoena because I didn't know that it was all about, but now that I am here and have given some testimony, I'm glad to be of any help I can to the investigation," he said. Fichtner, now a manufacturer's representative in Meadville, Pa., said some of the questions the jury asked him dealt with player-management relations and relations among players in the NFL. He said the question of blackballing players came up, "but I wasn't able to give them much information." Newsmen were unable to pin down as to whether he thought he had been blackballed. "I think I got a raw deal but whether or not you call it black balling I don't know," he said. Parrish was with the Browns from 1959 until after the first game of the 1966 season, when he asked for his release. He finished the season with the Houston Oilers and then retired from football. He declined to say why he asked for his release from the Browns. While with the club he helped organize the NFL Players' Association. Fichtner, 32, said the Browns did not renew his contract after the 1967 season following a squabble over a celebrity golf tournament in which he had charge of inviting players. He was with the New Orleans Saints in 1968, but saw limited action, and was dropped nefora the 1969 season began. Winter is • difficult- time for birds. Feed is scarce, with insects and foliage gone.
