June 13. 197f» Sunda Let Snead Play. · J Dickinson Urges NORTH PALM BEACH. Fla. ( A P ) Gardner Dickinson, a former director of the PGA's Tournament Players Division. Saturday urged officials of next week's U.S. Open to invite golfers Sam Snead. Julius BORIS and Roger Maltbie to the tournament in Atlanta. All three failed to qualify last week. Dickinson called the U.S. Open's qualifying system "illogical, unfair and anti- quated" and urged officials to make special dispensation "for these three preat players." Snead had won every major championship except the U.S. Open and has rarely missed the tournament's field in the last 40 years. Boros, twice winner of the U.S. Open, would be absent for the first time since he joined the tour in 1950. Maltbie has won three tournaments since joining the circuit last year.

Tex. i A P ) - George Foreman, his body soaked in sweat after a Uvohour workout, relaxed in a big rocking chair. "The imly way I'd leave this place." he said, "is for someone to get two big Brahma bulls, chain my legs up both sides of them and drag me away. "Go right up that road and up that hill and that's where I was born." said the former heavyweight champion, now preparing for Tuesday's bout with Joe Frazier in New York. "I'm home, I traveled all over the world searching for satisfaction and 1 found it rinht here in Marshall. Tex. Bora by Lamplight He was born by lamplight in a small frame house on Possum Ridge some 27 years ago. born among the pine trees, sandy soil and oil wells of this East Texas city. But Foreman spent most of his younger years on the brawling, boisterous streets in a black section of Houston, where fists were weapons of survival and brushes with the law were as routine as a hungry belly. He captured the hearts of millions of Americans and won a Freedom Foundation award when, after taking the heavyweight title in the 1968 Olympic Games at Mexico City, he celebrated in the center of the ring by waving two small American flags. In the years that followed. Foreman rose to the top of prizefighting world, lost his title, was entangled in a bitter divorce suit, and started his climb back toward the t0!) ' Captures Hearts of Kids Now. he has captured the h e a r t s of many of the 25.590 residents of this once booming oil town, especially the youngsters. "The children, black and white, relate to George." said Jerry Arnold, managing editor of the M a r s h a l l News-Messenger. "They flock around him at every opportunity and he always welcomes them. The people I have talked to say if their kids must have an idol, then no one could be finer than George Foreman." Mike Powell agrees. He's an 8-year-old Cub Scout, among some !50 youngsters Foreman invited to the training camp on his 55-acre farm tucked away in the countryside near Marshall. '"I love it having George Foreman here, because he's nice and he'? a good fighter." j Mike said. "And. 1 tell you. he can beat anybody in the world because he's from Marshall'. Tex." Jim and Judy Candenhead own a small general store about two miles from the Foreman spread. "Never a day passes without someone stopping by and asking directions So George's camp." Canden- head said. And his wife added. "1 think the entire town is pleased that Foreman is ; here. There never is a mention about him i being black or white." , Has Pet Lion and Tiger j Foreman runs a few head of cattle on his ; land, has a couple of horses, a pet lion that j serves as a wrestling opponent, a tiger, j and cultivates a lew acres, mostly in oats. · He makes frequent unscheduled appear- ; ances at the elementary schools in the, area just to talk to the children. He speaks when invited to high school groups and says he tells them: "Study your mathematics or some accountant is going to beat you out of your money. Don't wait until you get famous to try to"read a contract. I didn't know when I was running out the school and jumping fences to get away that some day I would be Irving to figure out 35 per cent of sudden growth or blah-blah-blah. I took other people's word. I should have studied. I should have been ready for it." The Rev. Leon Noiel of the Greater Oak Grove Baptist Church said Foreman is a regular Sunday worshipper. "He does a lot for the youngsters. They look to him and say, 'This is what I can be.'" The 12-round fight between Foreman and Frazier will start at 10:30 p.m. EOT Tuesday. The bout will be shown on a closed circuit teifcast but it will not be carried on nomelelevision. These people don't have faces because we really can't give you a specific description of them, but we do want to warn you about them. They are swindlers--professional and amateur--and they come in all shapes and sizes; male or female. They may be well-dressed and g r a c i o u s . . . or slick in appearance and fast-talking . . . or give the impression of being poor or pathetic. But they know what they're doing and we want you to know too--before it happens to you. They all have one thing in common: They're after your money. They may try any of several ways to get a person's money, and they often work in teams. This is one of the oldest con games. The crook is; observe-, peoole makina deposits ot a bank, selects a victim 'perhaps youi and -- either approaches you on the street with a hard luck story about being new in town and having some money but not trusting local banks. The stronger hopes you will prove the reliability ot your bank .'and encourages you to do so) by making a trouble-tree withdrawal. Then he or she meets you outside and asks to hold the money a; final proof, returning to you in o "hand is rjuictter than the eye" motion ci bag of paper and keeping your money -- or r'aybe makes you an offer in v/hich you can get rich overnight by investing a considerable amount of your own money with some he or she has found or inherited. You invest your life's savings in good faith, and the crook walks away with it- never to be seen again. If a person confacfs you in any of these ways or otherwise suspiciously, don't get involved. Just say "NO" and immediately call your bank and the police. They /enow what to do. This is another frequently used swindle. -- A stranger calls you explaining that ho or she is with your bank and trying to catch a dishonest teller, and asks for your help. You are then instructed to withdraw in cash a large sum from your account, The "examiner" arranges to meet you at the bank or pick up the money at your home, saying he or she will mark the money and put it back in the bank in an effort to trap the supposedly guilty teller. Of course,you never get your money back.
