HammerirT Harmon Now Rules Murderers' Row Butts' Attorneys Begin Rebuttal By MIKE RATHET Associated Press Sports Writer Quick-firing Harmon Killehrew ruled murderers' row today after a power struggle at Los Angeles in which deposed kingpin Bob Allison issued a warning to the guy who shoved him from the No. 1 spot. Hammerin' Harmon, who along with Allison and Earl Battey, forms Minnesota's power triumvirate, took over the American League home run lead Wednesday night, niunillrt in , ,_„„„,,„.,« ,„, with a three-run eighth inning shot that catapaulted the former Georgia coach w'a 11 y Twins to a 9-4 victory over the Angls. ATLANTA (APV-Attornev.s for Lawyers Talk On Big Match NEW YORK (AP) — You can't tell a fighter without his lawyer these days. And a fightej- can't get along without the barrister s in these complicated days of taxes, ancil- ! lary rights and corporations so j that getting into the ring seems i to be the easiest thing unless | you're an opponent of heavyweight champion Sonny Liston. : That's just what brash Cassius , Clay say s he wants although big | bear Liston predicts the boxing i bard will be reciting poetry in his sleep after about one and a half • rounds or so. Nevertheless, Cassius had his legal seconds in there talking big money with Sonny's . representatives Wednesday night about a title fight, maybe in September and more likely next year. The conference most likely will be continued today and maybe for a few more day s because there's a lot of money at stake. One of the rubs against a fight thi s year is that both boxers have earned a lot o* money in 1963 already. And if that's a problem, ovefyone should be stuck with something siniilar. If they fight this year Uncle Sam possibly could tap them both for most of it in income taxes. That's where the lawyers come into the picture. Alumni Game Plans Readied Plans are taking shape for the annual Garden City Junior College-Alumni football game here. The gam e is set for Saturday night, Sept. 7. New co-coaches of the Alums this year will be Don Talley and Fred Chaffin. If the new stadium east of the high school is ready by that date, the game "will be played there. Otherwise it will be at Penrose Stadium, as in past years. The annual battle traditionally kicks off the local football season. It gives the public a preseason look-see at Broncbuster gridiron forces. First meeting of the 1 o c al Quarterbacks Club is set for Monday, Aug. 26. It will be at noon at the Warren Hotel. Bob Wright i s this year's president. Kelly Malson is vice president and Acy Hall secretary-treasurer. Cycle Races Set for Here More than 500 motorcyclists from 30 states will compete for j girls _P"t their horses through honors here in part of the National Motorcycle Rally on Labor Day, Sept. 2. Events ar e slated for the air strip at the Garden City Airport. Butts begin their rebuttal today „... . , ,. , in tlie wake of a federal judge's Killcbrews 25th homer gave j dec|aration , hat a ma , azinp nn . him one more than Allison and' put him five up on Battey. Killebrew, who tied for the homer championship with 42 in 1959 and captured the crown with 48 last year, is trying to become only tlie ninth player in AL history to hold or share the title three or more times. Allison was forced to the side lines for two or tlu-ee days with a fracture of the ring finger on his right hand. He was struck by a pilch from Los Angeles' Dean Chance in Tuesday night's game. Allison warned at the time: "That's the third time he has hit me this season and I'm get- tin? tired of it."

(AP) — Missouri's Coach Dan Devine criticized a substitution rule Wednesday in an interview here, calling it one "nobody understands." The rule, devised by the Football Rules Committee recently alows unlimited substitution on second and third downs and restricts them on the first and fourth-the downs necessary to two-platoon footiball. Devine said that "In baseball it's three strikes and you're out and the rules in other sports are definite and clear-cut. But it's not that way with the football rule that has just been devised. It isn M generally understood by the coaches, and on those parts that are understood there is confusion because of different interpretations. "One conference says you can down the ball and get a time out. Another says you can't. There must be a national interpretation in order to relieve the confusion. 1 ' .Devine was interviewed at the Texas Coaching School where he is lecturing .on football.

NEW LINCOLN 180-AMP AC WELDER Now $110.00 WELDERS SUPPLY Phot* BR 6-4861 icle charging Butts and Alabama coach Paul (Rear; Bryant rigged i a footfall game was libclous on j its face, Attorney William II. Schroder Jr. said Bulls may take the stand today in the $10 million libel suit he lilei, ' liust Curtis Publishing Co., publishers of tlie Saturday Evening Post. Bryant, Schroder said, probably will testify Friday along with other coaches and players. The rebuttal began after U.S. District Judge Louis R. Morgan, who Wednesday termed the magazine's March 23 story "libelous per se," refused a directed verdict in favor of Butts. Judge Morgan said it was up to the jury to decide whether the Post, in less than three days of testimony, had proved its charges were true. Attorneys for the publishing company rested their ease, in a surprise step, late Wednesday. The magazine charged in its March 23 issu.2 that .Butts, then Georgia's athletic director, leaked vital Georgia football information to Bryant before the 1902 game between their schools, Frank Graham Jr., free-lance writer who assembled the story for the Post, said in written ksti- mony Wednesday that he based the story on an affidavit in which insurance salesman George P. Burnett said he overheard a telephone call from Butts to Bryant last Sept. 13, nine days before the game. Schroder and another Butts Attorney, Allen Lockerman, read tlie testimony into the record. In tli e deposition, Graham said he met and interviewed Burnett in Atlanta but that he wrote tlie article without seeing notes Burnet said he took while listening to Butts and Bryant on tlie telephone.
