(Staff photo) NEW YORK Ifl-The champion New York GianU, Chicago Bears Mid Detroit Lions today dominated Th* Associated Press National Football League All-Star team, capturing 15 of 22 berths. · Five members 'from each of the three clubs were named to this mythical two-platoon team by 28 sporUwriters; who covered the NFL campaign for The AP in the various cities from coast to coast. Two players, offensive end Harlon Hill of the/Bears and defensive tackle Roosevelt Grier "of the Giants, were picked on all 28 bal- ots. Halfbacks OIlie Matson of the Chicago Cardinals and Frank Gifford 'of the Giants missed unanimous selection by one vote. Every member of the 12-club league is represented except the Philadelphia Eagles, Pittsburgh Steelers, San Francisco 49ers and Cleveland Browns. The Browns, who failed to win the Western crown tkis year for the first time since they entered the league in 1950, earned.two positions on the second team as did the 49ers, with the Eagles and Steelers getting one each.

The Broncs aren't giving up by because, as commented, "There's never going to be an easy game m the city race." A .left-over football injury . has robbed North o f . a leiterman and all-around athlete for at least part of the season. Bobby Austin broke a collarbone on the gridiron,'then re-broke it after playing several basketball games. Austin was to *ee a doctor lor an X-ray this afl- ernoon, but still may not play much for several more games. Avoca's contribution to the Bronco team, Leslie Townsend, has been slowed up by a leg injury, while starting forward Larry Wilson missed practice Wednesday with a cold. Ogren rates the Lincoln team above South in the city, even after South whipped the Broncos by five points in the Brownwood tournament. "We can play either a good fame, though," Ogren added. North has been working on penetrating the zone defense this week, a formation that is gaining popularity and being used a great CITY CAGE RACE deal'this season. One of Lincoln's favorite weapons, the zone is tough to play against, but Ogren did not seem overly worried about it. Hinting at a change in his customary man-to-man barrier, Ogren' said his team has been drilling on operating a zone defense this week. "But we don't have any secret weapons," Ogren joked. "No seven-foot boys or anything." . North ran into a vicious demonstration of the zone Tuesday night against Sweetwater. After scaring only nine points in the first half, the Broncos dropped a 52-33 decision. "I hope we can get through Lincoln's, but you never can toll," Ogren said. North scoring has been' pretty well distributed this year, r but forward Bill Walker and center Rick Harvey are leading the team. Harvey has scored 84 points while North,racked up a 5-3 record during the current season. Walker has dumped in 76 from his forward position. Both boys, along with Wilson, hau' in a big share of the rebounds. Townsend is the playmaker against a man-for-man, but Austin deals the ball against a zone. With Austin as playmaker, North wal- oped Sweetwater by 20 points ear- ier in the year. Speedy guard Jackie Pace drew comment for shaping up as a gooc defensive player, although his shooting is off, said Ogren. Still' talking about the Lfhcoln game, Ogren said, "We're never sure about any game, but we can sure hope." "Yep," Austin- joined in, might even run a quadruple against them." Ogren said Harvey had scored more at the first of the year, but seems to have joined the slump the whole Bronco team is going through, starting Wilson, spot on who earned a the (cam last year, was praised for his hustling in the last tew practice sessions.

NEW YORK l/n-A 3:59.8 clocking for the mile run stamped Laszlo Tabori of Hungary a fast runner. Last night he proved himself « fast talker as well, flatly denying statements which had him dissatisfied with living, eating and training conditions in Miami. The 25-year-old Olympian and his trainer, Mihaly Igloi, 48, few north yesterday after a Miami report quoted Tabori as saying, 'Jhere in Miami, people can't afford to give me a place like I'm used to." But at a New York press conference, the runner and trainer said the statements "were not made." They also said Miami was after the Olympic Games because of Russian suppression. Sports Illustrated sponsored their entry into the United States, and the track men are now being taken care of by the AAU which has arranged for Tabori to run in nine an excellent place 1,0 train and that New York was too cold.

The conditions were to be discussed between the Hungarians and Ferris last night, but the AAU secretary was ill. Reached by phone, he did say, however, that I he would talk to them but indicated tlvere was no hurry about it. Ta'oori and Igtoi steined to think otherwise. They stressed repeatedly (tot their main concern was Tabori's condition and that they left the sunny South onJy because they thought things could he straightened out in the wintry North. Their Miami problem was sim- ply a matter of transportation, they said. Their hotel was about sk miles from the training facilities at the University of Miami and they had no way to gel there, they explained. Dick Neal. an assistant publisher of Sports Illustrated, pointed out that the magazine had given them two dollars a day spending money from Dec. 24, when they arrived in the country, through Jan. 7, and lhat this was not enough for taxi fare. Since Monday, when the AAU took over, they lind received no money and were no longer guests of the city of Miami as they had been for some days previous, driven Tabori him to said people had training while he was a city guesl. So faced with the transportation problem and seeing no tolution, Igloi said they asked to be returned to New York to talk with Ferris.
