The running competition highlighted by the appearance of Belgium's Gaston Roelants, the steeplechase champion, who will compete in the two-mile event in his U.S. debut.

Foffey stiff in title picture, beats Chuvalo Finley blames Cronin for most of his troubles NEW YORK (UPI) — Charles O. Finley, who has instructed his attorneys to file suit against the American League for rejecting his request to transfer the Kansas City Athletics to Louisville, today blamed American League President Joseph Cronin for most of his troubles "He is running for office you know — the office of baseball commissioner," Finley declared with all the emphasis his weary voice could command. "He's the root of a lot of my troubles and is largely responsible for the poor image that the baseball world and the insurance business, which has made me wealthy, have of me today." Finley left no doubt that he means to pay Cronin back in spades — even if it ruins baseball. "I am not out to ruin the game, because I love it and I want to be in it," said Finley.

The 31-year-old father of seven kept alive a possible shot at heavyweight champ Sonny Listen Friday night by posting a triumph over George Chuvalo, the Canadian heavyweight ruler ranked ninth. Folley, Chandler , Ariz., flashed a brilliant left jab to lead him to a unanimous decision over the Canadian in a 10- round nationally televised battle. Folley indicated that a rematch was in the offing. He said he was "willing" to meet the 26-year-old Chuvalo again. The match, which may take place within the next few- months, would be held in either Toronto, Chuvalo's hometown or Montreal.

BOSTON (UPI) — American League President Joe Cronin said today he is not running for the office of baseball commissioner, but declined to com ment on other charges brought by Kansas City Athletics owner Charles O. Finley. In it the champion said . . . "Love to give you a title shot but have a previous engagement in Miami Beach. Get a few more wins and I would be- glad to meet you." Liston meets talkative Cassius Clay next month. Folley, sixth ranked, already knows the knockout power of Liston, having been kayoed by the champion in the third round of a 1960 fight. At that time Folley had been the No. 1 contender during the reiga of Floyd Paterson. The triumph was Folley's 64th against only six setbacks, while the loss was Chuvalo's eighth in 35 fights. The setback ended a six bout unbeaten streak chalked up in 1963 when Chuvalo won five and had one draw. Chuvalo said "experience beat me. He just knew too much."

Nicklaus returns, lighter, happier By HAL WOOD UPI Sports Writer PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. (UPI) —Big Jack Nicklaus, hen- apparent to the title in every tournament he enters, returned to the golfing wars this week in the Bing Crosby event. He was seven pounds lighter than when he left the tour six i weeks ago. And the perpetual The big guy, who earned more than $100,000 on the tour last year (and possibly triple that in side-lines), is the most relaxed and at ease since the first day he joined the tour in 1962 in Los Angeles and wound up picking up his first pay check—for $33.33.

"That's outside of four rounds I played with my wife last week. She hadn't played fori four years. But she's showing! improvement. She had a 140 on one round." Now it takes patience for a golfer of Nicklaus' caliber to play with a 140 hacker. But when it's your wife, you have a choice? Nicklaus has no set aims- other than to be a winner. At the tender age of 24 he already has won the National Amateur, National Open, Masters and PGA crowns. He freely admits that he thinks he can beat any golfer in the world. And most of his foes admit he's right. "He is so strong," says Arnold Palmer. "That the extra 10 yards be gets off the tee over the rest of us automatically gives him an edge of one stroke per 18 holes." Nicklaus, noted as the slow est man on a course since Dr. Cary Middlecoff used to give everybody the fidgets, got a taste of his own medicine in the Crosby pro-am. 'I was paired with Bobby Nichols, no race horse himself; and two amateurs," says Jack. Between the four of us we kept playing slower and slower until we were three holes and a full bour behind the foursome ahead of us. I was worn out when we finished." But he's not about to changs his style — or speed — of play, And he'd be crazy if he did.
