Those cards and letters keep seeking their support in the matter of conducting fun and games. "You may find this somewhat crackpottish at first inspection, but the longer you ponder it the more it will intrigue, opened one of the latest brainstorms. "What I' propose is a boxing tournament featuring the toughest men in the National Football League one entry from each team. "In the first round," for instance, you could have Dick Butkus of the Bears vs. Buck Buchanan of the Chiefs, Marlin McKeever of the Rams vs.

Jim Kiick of the Dolphins, etc, It would build up to a championship finale worth $50,000 to the winner Are you beginning to grasp the beauty of this?" Well, intriguing maybe. Impossible, definitely. But that's the way it comes and goes in Special Events. Other suggestions have involved golf tourneys, motocross, tennis, yacht races, bike races, handball and even a round trip ride on a refurbished train pulled by an ancient steam locomotive. "We're interested only in blue chip events," said Davis whose department raises money for the many charities the Times Fund.

"But we listen to all ideas. Final proval, of course, is up to the senior executive committee." As might be guessed the blue chip lineup is already pretty well filled by three major events the annual indoor snike spectacular know as The Times Games, the yearly Ram football opener in August and the Grand Prix that climaxes the Can-Am series for sports cars the last weekend in October, at Riverside Raceway. Over the years, The Times has also sponsored the Soap Box Derby, Golden Gloves amateur' boxing, the U.S.Russian dual meet and Pacific-Southwest tennis in build-, ing anchoperating the Times Boys Club as well as raising several million for more than 100 other Southern California charities. falcon premium Premium double belted tire featuring 2 nylon cord body plies and 2 rugged fiberglass belt plies for long mileage and superior resistance to punctures and impacts.

Feuerbach said it was Komar, staying at Feuer-bach's home while competing in this country, who gave him the tip that produced Feuerbach's world indoor record toss of 69 feet, 5 34 inches Jan. 27 at Portland, Ore. "He told me to keep my body down lower to get the full thrust of my body into the toss," Feuerbach said. "I followed his advice and it (the record toss) was one of the most effortless throws of my career." Feuerbach, who finished fifth to Komar in the 1972 Games at Munich, said he hoped to use Kornar's advice to break 70 feet during the indoor season.

i'The next logical step is 70 feet, said Feuerbach, who will duel- Komar in The Times Games at the Forum Friday "I think it could; come any time. 60 Technique "I know the "strength is there, now it's just a matter of techniques. I put more reliance on' techniques but you -have to have the strength." Feuerbach said for him, throwing the shot was 60 technique and 40 strength. "For a guy like Olympic silver medalist George Woods, it might be the other way around. But he weighs 300 pounds."

They've all been worthy projects, but none has consistently generated the same excitement as the Big Three the Ram game, the Grand Prix and the indoor track festival, the 14th annual of which unfolds Friday night at the Forum with a typical cast of 250 athletes, 25 events, 17 world champions and an international field of gold medal Olympians from Poland and Italy, "Track and field1? I guess, is my personal favorite," said Kern, the meet director, and it's a convenient way to feel. It always all looks so easy once the athletes hit; the boards. But getting them there and tying it together is quite another matter the grandest assortment of little headaches in the Excedrin yearbook. Among other things, 1 Kern, for example, has been driving to the airport about every five minutes to personally welcome the arriving stars. Saturday he drove through the rain to meet Italy's Gianni del, Buono, who defeated Steve Prefontaineiiv Europe shortly after the Olympics and will be out to do it again to the colorful little Oregonian in Friday night's 2-mile.

The Italian distance star' was due in from another; meet in Toronto, So Kern waited at the gate as. his scheduled flight unloaded. No Del Buono. "Luckily, I started to read the paper while waiting for the next flight," said Kern. "I see his name in the Cleveland story." Sherlock' Kern to the phone booth.

Call to Cleveland meet director. Yes, Del Buono WAS there. Call to Sheraton Cleveland. Yes, Del Buono IS here. Hello, what are you doing in Cleveland? Ho-ho, nothing to worry about, just a last-minute change of plans and temporary detour.

Yes, he's still coming to L.A. And Del Buono finally arrived Monday. The Polish contingent (shot put gold medalist Wla- dyslaw-Komar, miler Henryk Szordykowski, Andre Kupczyk and lady sprinter Irena Szewinska) landed Sunday. Three of them did, at least. Komar was missing.

"No problem," sighed Kern. "I did some phoning. Komar got here ahead of the others and has been staying with Al Feuerbach so they could "work out together. He'll be here for the luncheon today at the Airport Marina Hotel, meet headquarters, with the others." i Duran Will Fight Mexican Here Roberto Duran of Panama, World Boxing Assn. lightweight champion, has signed to fight Juan Cach-orro Medina of Mexico Feb.

double-checked every couple of hours with the State Department. They've taken out their visas." There are other meals for differing tastes How can an airline misplace a fiberglass pole? Where's the best place to take a little 25-mile warmup run at With all the international flavor, Kern is probably most pleased about landing 600-yard whiz Martin McGrady, the "chairman of the boards," and Chi Cheng, making her first start in an individual running event since injury nearly ended her career in 1971. McGrady is no Olympian. He's never been too much outdoors. But inside on the board track he runs 600 yards like nobody else.

Three years ago Kern put together the dream showdown between Mexico City Olympic champs Lee Evans (400 meters) of the U.S. and Australia's Ralph Doubell (800 meters) meeting at the neutral distance of 600 yards. They didn't disappoint. Both set world rec'ords. But there was one minor distraction.

Both finished behind McGrady. This is particularly a big week for Chi Cheng. Monday, she took her final citizenship tests. Friday night, the remodeled Chinese supergirl, who still holds four world marks-, finds out how far she's come back. Her leg agonies were finally diagnosed a year ago in Taiwan as a solidified thigh muscle.

Surgeons removed 17 inches of "rock" from her thigh. She spent 52 days in the hospital and then another five weeks learning to walk, let alone run. These are the things that it go," said Kern, just another fan in real life, and he's right. There's no more exciting show Still, I can't help wondering.
