Norway (AP)—Sonny Liston was so jovial he even staged a mock argument with his adviser, Jack Nilon. The setting was a new s conference following an exhibition by the world heavyweight champion in this southern Norway town Monday night. The question was how long it would take Liston to j,el in shape for a bout with former champion Ingemar Johansson. The l.iston-Nilon argument was whether it would take five days <>r six. Johansson's name was one of three—Cassius Clay and Floyd | Patterson were the others—that j were thrown at Liston as possible opponents. j He and 'Nilon admitted there had been some talk of a fight ; with Johansson, but that nothing was firm. They reversed their field on a Clay fight, but held out no hope for a future hout with Patterson. FAN FARE The Standings By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS National League W. L. Pct-G.B.

(AP) - Thej lighly regarded filly Cheer Honey ! and B. F. Coaltown — second mn- [ official choices in the Hamblelon- j ian — were undergoing treatment i with medicated oxygen but were | considered sure starters for Wednesday's premier stake for 3- year-old trotters. The field of 10 colts and 4 fillies, headed by the 2-5 favorite Speedy Scot, appeared ready for the $115,549 Kentucky Derby of harness j racing. The only question before | th c first mile heat at the fast, bet-1 less Du Quoin mile oval goes off al 2:30 p.m. EST, was whether little Joe O'Brien would be able to drive Star Act. O'Brien, 46, winner of the Ham- bletonian in 1960 with Blaze Hanover and in 1955 with Scott Frost was on crutches with a knee injury. Of more vital concern was a badly sprained right wrist. He was hurt in a spill a week ago at Chicago's Sportsman's Park. He was hurt in a spill a week until Wednesday morning whether he could drive Star Act. Cheer Honey,. the 2-year-old filly trotting champion of 1982 and winner of five out of eight starts this season, was about cured of a virus condition which hit 'her at Du Quoin last weekend. Twice a day the daughter of Florican, with winnings of $113,014 has an improvised mask placed over her nose and breathes medicated oxygen mist for a half hour. B F. Coaltown, who is 4-1 with Cherry Honey in unofficial odds, gets the same treatment. He has had a throat infection for a month but it is fiully under control and the oxygen now is used more as a precaution. Speedy Scot, whose trainer- tlriver Ralph Baldwin will be seeking his first Hambletonian triump in 13 attempts, remained the center of attraction. The strapping bay colt won the Yonkers Futurity, the first leg of the triple crown series which includes the Hambletonian and the Kentucky Futurity in Lexington Oct. 4, and was conceded a fine chance from the No. 3 post position to smash the race's mile record of 1:58 2-5 set b'y Harlan Dean at Du Quoin in 1961. Others in the field and their unofficial odds include Captain's Boy and Dorado, part of the Baldwin- trained 2-5 entry; Glidden Hanover, 5-1; Florlis, 6-1; Charles Hanover, 10-1; Diggs Dell and Buff Hanover, 10-1, John Patterson trained entry; Choir Boy 12-1; Star Act 15-1; Elma, 15-1 and Filter, 20-1.

Pat terson of the Los Angeles Dodgers has vowed not to get a haircut until his team has a four-run in ning. Short of going completely bald, he might never have struck upon a surer method of slashing his barber bill. It has taken the Dodgers 35 innings to score their last four runs. But, after dropping a 3-1 decision to Cincinnati Monday night, the Dodgers still led the National League by 5Ms games. at Yankee Stadium but some bit- ' terness lingers, too. The Yankees' Joe Pepitone and the Indians' Fred Whitfield. among the chief combatants in the melee precipitated by a bean-ball between the rival pitchers, were kidding about it the following afternoon but Manager Birdie Tebbetts of Cleveland indicated not everybody is laughing. Certainly not Larry Brown, the Indians' rookie shortstop, who needed four stitches to close up a spike wound on the heel of his left foot. Nor Dick Howser, Brown's injured predecessor, who suffered a much less serious spike wound. "Such fights cast a long shadow," said Tcbbetts, who majored in psychology while at Providence College. "Some scan take a long time to heal. "I think the Yankees were silly to get into a fuss with us. They're winning and have nothing to gain by it. Our guys arc not likely to forget it. "Nothing may come of it for awhile. But some day, some year, at an appropriate time, they'll remember and it could prove costly to the Yankees." On the lighter side is Yankee Manager Ralp Houk's recounting of an incident that took place during the heat of the scuffle. Houk had nun out to protect Pepitone who seemed to be more than holding his own against Whitfield. '.'Next thing I know I'm on the ground, on top of this guy in gray flannel, wearing No. 12," said ilouk, an ex-Ranger who is generally regarded as one who can take care of himself with words or fists. " 'Are you Woodie Held?' I asked. " 'Who the hell do you think I am? replied Held. "I got off quickly. Woodie and I have been friends for years. Then I start looking for my hat. Where do you think it is? On Hold's head." The first 300 game approved by the American Bowling Congress was rolled by A.' C. Jellison of St. Louis on Dec. 15 190S.
