The Berkshire Eagle, Saturday, Nov. 2,1974- 21 All plans retirement MONTREAL (UPI) - Heavyweight champion Muhammad Ali, still chortling over his title knockout of George Foreman, said Friday he would "haunt the boxing world" by keeping his crown for a while before retiring. Ali, who returned to North America following his eighth round victory over Foreman in Zaire earlier this week, said "Yes sir, I'm retiring. "But I'm going to stay a few Bills, Pats eyeing playoffs FIRST TOUCHDOWN of the game last night is made by Pittsl'ield High's Peter Brown (23) cm a 17-yard run in the first quarter.

The heavyweight champion, wearing a dark blue suit and carrying a wooden carved walking stick--a gift from the president of Zaire, quashed reports that he would fight English heavyweight Joe Bugner. "Bugner? It would be a slaughter. He isn't in my class," Ali said. "I'd murder Bugner." By Gil Peters UPI Sports Writer FOXBORO. Mass. (UPI) The eighth game of the season ·may not be time to think about "wild card' playoff berths; yet both the Buffalo Bills and New England Patriots recognize the importance of tomorrow's get together atSchaefer Stadium. Both teams are 6-1 and both still must play hungry Miami, 5-2, and the defending super bowl champions, before the season ends. Since all three are in the Eastern Division of the American Football Conference, only two teams at most will tie on cleats after Dec. 15. · "I'm sure a good football .. team is not going to make it," said Buffalo Coach Lou Saban. We've got three good teams in our division. Somebody in our league is going to get hurt. "I don't think a loss would ruin either team, though, because they've still got six more to play." 'Wild card'entry The AFC East winner automatically advances to the playoffs, while the non-division winner with the best record in the entire AFC also qualifies as the "wild card" entry. . Fairbanks has an easier solution concerning the wild card puzzle: "The only thing I'm thinking about is that we've got to do it ourselves and if somebody else should happen to help us by knocking off a contender ... that's lucky, boy." The Patriots, whose only loss was a 30-28 decision two weeks ago at Buffalo, have to start helping themselves Sunday _ against the Bills. thigh bruise a month ago. Rookie Steve Schubert is doubtful and tight end Bob Adams will start his first game this season instead of injured Bob Windsor. Running threat " Both Sam Cunningham and Mack Herron are in good physical condition which means New England also must be considered a running threat. Cunningham, fourth leading yard-gainer in the AFC with 538 yards, has a 75-yard romp against Buffalo among his. conference leading eight TDs. The Bills' offensive answer to New England will be AFC passing leader Joe Ferguson and conference rushing champ O.J. Simpson. Ferguson, with a 57.8 completion percentage and nine touchdown tosses, will look "And with this wild card thing, you've got to beat the clubs in your division." New England Coach Chuck Fairbanks added, "There's no question that winning Sunday would be a real advantage for the winning team because both teams have to play Miami and the team that loses will have the same record as Miami.

Holy Cross took a 14-0 lead on two passes from Morton to wide receiver Dave Quehl, one for 72-yards in the first quarter and another for 58-yards in the second period. But the Terriers tied it on a one-yard plunge by Joe Driscoll in the second quarter and an 11-yard toss from quarterback Mark Ryll to Pete Kessel midway through the third stanza. The last quarter saw six turnovers, two of which killed Boston University's chances. After Terrier linebacker Gary Djiama recovered a Holy Cross PAID POUTICAL ADVERTISEMENT fumble in Crusader territory, Ryll uncorked a long bomb which Provost picked off for his first interception of the game and the sixth of his career.
