(•ftrifon « llv l>|ptfrntn Tutidfty, Auquit 20, 19*3 Call for Tighter Boxing Control Gets Support MIAMI BEACH, Fla. (AP) Members of the World Boxing Association agreed almost unanimously today with Commissioner Abe Greene's call for tlflht control of boxing to bring an end to "public mockery and ridicule." The fight business Is a "vast •wasteland," dominated by one- shot promoters who take everything out of the sport but contribute nothing to Is welfare. Groene told the convenlon. And if It is necessary to Invite federal government co n t r o 1, Greene said he Is all for it. The veteran commissioner has been speaking out against promotional cartels controlling the championships and has t lived passage of the. late Son. Estes Kefauver's bill to bring tho sport under a federal commissioner. "W« most bring tho boxing promoters Into line," he told newsmen. "Wo must bring them within the scope of boxing's administration and make them have a sense of responsibility. The WBA has got to fight for this." The W1JA operate,, on an annual budget that has never exceeded $5,000. With such a paltry operation, Greene said, it fails to provide (ho essential safeguards for the sport. He said baseball, basketball and football have Ihe means to enforce their regmlallons, police their sport R on a national scale, and pension their athletes. Part of the money goes Into effective administration, he added. But in boxing, which now boasts the largest gates In sports history, not one cent is devoted to the cause of centralized control, Greene said. A reasonable percentage of these bonanzas, lie argued, should be earmarked for the benefit of the sport. The "devastating impact" of closed-circuit television, Greene said, has changed the faco of boxing, wiping out hundreds of box- out of aclion last| ltvg ,f ll " bs , nml concentrating how- or In a few promotional enterprises.

Big 8 Grid Teams to Face Tough 'Outside' Opponents By JIM VAN VALENBURG As'ociated Press Sports Writer The Big Eight faces probably the toughest non-conference football schedule in its history this fall. On the card are Southern -California's defending national champs, plus such giants as Texas, Northwestern, Arkansas, Clemson and Syracuse. Big Eight teams won two of three bowl games and posted a 15-11-1 record last season against outside teams. They may not break even in 24 games this season. They must play two games against Texas, Southern Cal and Arkansas. Southern Cal, Texas and Northwestern all are considered prime contenders for the national crown while Arkansas, Syracuse and Clemson are 'given a good chance to break into the top 10, in the Associated Press poll. Big Red opens with Clemson Sept. 21 at Norman, then faces Southern Cal Sept. 28 at Los Angeles and Texas Oct. 12 at Dallas. Missouri opens with Northwestern at Columbia Sept. 21, then plays Arkansas a week later at Little Rock. Colorado opens with Southern Cal, then play s Oregon State's Liberty Bowl champs. Oklahoma Stale meets Arkansas, Texas and Tulsa. Nebraska meets Minneasota, 10th nationally a year ago. Kansas opens at Texua Christian, a perennial Southwest Conference contender. The Jayhawks then face Syracuse Sept. 28 at Lawrence, primed for a big year under Coach Ben Schwartzwalder, before traveling to Wyoming. Big Eight teams play seven games against 1962 conference interest, Lucas said: "Basketball is m'y life and I just had a yearning to got back." Lucas was season after shunning tho Royals to take up with the onetime Clove- land Pipers of the rival American Basketball League. The league collapsed. There was no indication of the money value of his contract with Warren Hensel, Cincinnati businessman. Honsel has been dickering to purchase llio Roynls since last March, lull has yet to complete the deal. "This is a great day fo r the Roynls," said Ilcnscl, n minority team stockholder. "We've been trying to gel him a long time. And he just could make us n win. ner." Ilensel took over as the Royals ! rounded into n power in the NBA! under the lead of All-America Oscar Robertson. Lucas and Robertson have worked together before. They were tea in mates on the 19fiO U.S. Olympic squad.
