NEW YORK - (NBA) Nino Benvenuti has all the requirements for the pert ect image: long, but not too long, brown hair; flashing, penetrating eyes; the athlete's perfectly proportioned body and Mastroianni's looks. In Italy, Nino was a national hero long before he took Emile Griffith's middleweight title away in Madison Square Garden. That explains why most of Italy went to work with bags under its eyes on the morning of April 18.

"We will abide with him whatever name he wants," an induction officer said. "We will call him Muhammad Ali if he prefers when we ask him to take the one step forward to be inducted. If he refuses to take the step we will ask him under the name Cassius Marcellus Clay Jr. Indians In Spring Grid Show JONESBORO - Four weeks of spring football drills for Arkansas State University grid- ders will be culminated Saturday night wift the Red-White intrasquad game at ASU's Kays Stadium. The battle, which will begin at 7:30, will provide the A-State coaches and Indian fans with a hint of what to expect from next fall's edition of the Tribe. The past four weeks have been spent in preparation for Saturday's clash, and C a a di Bennie Ellender feels that his prospects have shown well under simulated, game - type conditions. "The spring sessions have been a testing period in which we have tried to teach the boys football fundamentals and techniques," noted Ellender. "We look for personnel to fil spots that were vacated be cause of graduation or other reasons, and if we can find ten tative replacements for these during the spring, we aren' slowed down by this process in the fall," he continued. The prospective gridders haw progressed steadily since thi initial spring practice, noted the A-State chief, and the squad's teamwork is making i into a dependable unit. "When we started our spring drills, we had hopes of ac quainting the boys, cspeciallj those with little or no exper ience, with the various condi lions involved in football. I del initely feel that we have ac compllshed this," Ellender marked.

"If he again declines he will be asked for a statement. Regardless of whether he makes a tatement or not he will be dismissed." * * * Failure of Clay to be inducted would make him subject to a ossible $10,000 fine, a five-year rison sentence, or both. A last attempt by Clay's law- ers to keep the unbeaten heavyweight champion from facing riminal action if he refuses to ; inducted was scheduled for p.m. (EST) Thursday in federal court. However, U.S. Atty. Morton Busman says Clay will not be arrested and that it could be 30 to 60 days before criminal action is taken if Clay refuses. Clay's lawyers are asking U.S. Dist. Judge Allen B. Hannay or an injunction pending settlement of a lawsuit in which the entire Selective Service System s challenged.

Broyles said tight end Mike Sigman, defensive end David Spatz, defensive tackle Terry Don Phillips and noseman Don McElogue would be ready for Friday's game. All four have been on the injury list.
