Ijtiiiiiiiittiiiiniiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiimiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiim Names and Faces Iri llockey . . . As a middle linebacker for the Green Eay Packers and a two-year defenseman for Minnesota in the Big 10, Jim Carter has all the experience necessary for the frenzied style of play in the World Hockey Association. Or so some ambitious WHA general manager thinks. Carter, who displaced one-time all-pro Ray Nitschke for the Central Division winners last season, confirmed that he's received an offer from one of the new clubs at $10,000 more per year than lie's getting from the Pack. Green Bay coach Dan Devine Isn't too worried, however: "I don't really see this as a crisis situation." A blessing in disguise?: NHL President Clarence Campbell, who along with about 100,000,000 other fans has witnessed the dissolution of talent in the league, reports that the proposed Kansas City franchise continues to remain in trouble. But K.C. entrepreneurs, hopeful of bringing hockey to the Heartland, presented a modified plan including interim financing to the Sen. Cook board of governors meeting in New York over which Campbell is presiding. He says the whole situation will be resolved by Friday. Football . . . The lobbyist: Pete Rozelle, hopeful that Nev York State will not legalize all sports betting and thus create obvious problems for the National Football League, held a huge cocktail party last night for legislators and their aides. A proposed amendment legalizing such wagering was approved by the legislature last year, and, if it is approved by this year's legislature, would appear on the ballot in November for a decision by the voters. And so, Rozelle decided, a little get-together might be help- J . lU..I)iilJJHI.J.I P.IU'M 11 II .111111 I I imiiiiiMiiiiiMn iRrwrriffnriMiiTiTriit-fr j . ; Track Golf LINCOLN 6S, TAMALPAIS 49 ARAGON 28 .

Cook, R-Ky., introduced a bill to create a federal amateur sports commission to govern the participation of American athletes in international competition. He cited last year's Munich Olympics as an example of U.S. amateur sports divisiveness, which he termed "a collection of mistakes only the government could match." In addition to setting one set of rules for international competition, the three-member commission would be able to regulate the use of federally supported institutions for the development and training of amateur athletes.

This time we're going to let our actions on the court do the talking." All of the starters except center Eric Fernsten also started last year in the Regionals at Provo, Utah. And Fernsten, then a freshman, drove there to watch, so everyone fully understands the disappointment that went with last year's performance. In that game the Dons shot 22 per cent from the floor in the first half (8x36) and SO for the game (22x67), converted only 61 per cent of their free throws and made 20 turnovers. Smith was three of 10. Snake Jones one of six and Kevin Restani four of 16. "I remember coming downcourt and having my first pass of the game Intercepted by Ed Ratleff and taken in for an easy basket," Restani said. With Fernsten in the middle and Restani free to work for his 12-footers from a forward spot, USF is an Improved team. The Dons look at this game with Long Beach as the chance to prove it to a crowd of nearly 13,000, the poll-makers' and all those folks watching at home. In advancing to their best season since 1965-66, the 22-4 Dons had four men average in double figures: Smith (18.7), Restani (17.9), Mike Quick (17.4) and Jones (11.7). Fernsten averaged .8.2 points a game, 10.2 in conference play, but also contributed an average of 8.8 rebounds and six blocked shots. Such balance allowed USF to set a one-season scoring record of 2247 points for an average of 86.4 per game on a shot percentage of 46.3. Smith was one of two unanimous selections on the West Coast Athletic Conference team and an honorable mention on The Sporting News All America squad. Restani was named NorCal Player of the Year, first team all-WCAC and first team NCAA District 8. "Smith has improved greatly for them," Long Beach coach Jerry Tarkanian said. "He's one of the finest guards on the Coast ... Quick is shooting better and Restani, well, he was player of the year in their conference (actually that award went to William Averitt of Fepperdtne, but the thought was there)." , " By the same token, Long Beach has improved itself with the addition of JC transfers Roscoe Pondexter at forward and 5-10 guard Rick Aberegg. Pondexter gives the 49ers more depth and flexibility on the front line and Aberegg has taken the burden of ball handling off Ratleff. A year ago, Ratleff brought the ball up, was the team's leading scorer, rebounded, and was the pivotal man in the 49ers' 1-2-2 zone defense, playing on the point. Now with Aberegg, a quick and skilled player, Ratleff can work the lane and the baseline where he is most effective, knowing that Rick will penetrate and get the ball to the open man. , "They're also bigger and more physical on the front line this year," Restani said. "They start both Nate Stephens, who is 6-11, and Leonard Gray, who is 6-8, 240, and then they can come back with Pondexter (6-7, 230)." 4V " ' ' ' ' f ' .

When the referee, whom Lester said was inexperienced a n d incompetent, called a halt to the fight, fans threw beer cans and followed by climbing into the ring. "One can hit me on the h e a d," laughed Jimmy. "That was Hie hardest blow I had taken all night." "I knew from the start," Lester explained, "that the referee was working against me. He instructed me to take a step back and he would let us fight in the clinches. "Right away he said, 'Lester you're leaning. "I didn't know what he meant by leaning. I never heard tjiat before. Then he started pushing me. I finally told him to keep his hands off me. "When I had Avassa on the ropes and about ready to drop him, the referee pulled me off and said, 'I'm disqualifying you for fouling.' " It was then that the fireworks started. At the height of the brawl, Jimmy said he thought there must have been at least 50 people in the ring. Everybody was swinging, even at their friends.
