GRIFFIN UPl Sports Editor HOUSTON (UPl)-The National Collegiate Athletic Association faces decisions on the use" of freshmen in varsity atretics and on standards of academic eligibility today at the windup of the. association's 65th annual' convention. Meanwhile,' a dispute over financial aid to athletes continued to simmer with the American Football Coaches Association making a counterproposal to the "need" plan put forth by an NCAA committee. A major change proposed in NCAA rules is the use of freshmen on varsity teams, and this was to be put to two separate votes at the windup . session— one vote on permitting .freshmen competition in the' College Division (small college). level and then another on permitting it on the University (major) Division level. The decision on the academic eligibility of athletes centered on ' the proposal by some colleges—most of them in the northeast—the so-called "1.6 rule" be abolished. This is the ; rule which prevents a school from enroll­ ing a student-athlete unless the school will forecast < he will achieve at least an academic average of 1.6 "points of a possible 4.0. The rule, which has been in effect since 1966, has been attacked as impossible to administer by Queens College, Colby College and 32 other northeastern colleges. A battle over financial aide to athletes based on "need" flared in the convention. The plan, drawn up by an NCAA committee, would, in effect, reduce the amount of a scholarship if the family, can assume greater costs of providing the education, j The plan was sharply criticized immediately by football coaches, who claim it was "loaded with inequities.'' j Coach John McKay of Southern California forecast! the NCAA committee's "need" plan would eventually be passed. Coach Earle Edwards of North Carolina State;, j next president of . the 'Coaches Association, offered a wry! view' of the football money problem. "The thing that 5 *really <«osts money in football is losing," said Edwards. "And I don't know what the NCAA can do about that." Unitas Has Admirers In Cowboy Defense FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (UP1V-Johnny Unitas has lots of admirers in the Dallas -Cowboy defense, but that just means his" job. will be tougher in the Super Bowl Sunday. The figuring in the Cowboy camp is to stop Unitas and you go a- long way toward stopping the Baltimore Colts.. If everybody's talking about Johnny U., It's only because everybody's getting keyed to cut him off. It could be a long afternoon for Johnny U. Offensively, the Cowboys will again be counting heavily on the powerful running game of Duane Thorns and Walt Garrison, and hoping Craig Morton's throwing arm will tie back in shape. -If it isn't, Coach Tom i Landry said be may have to go to back up quarterback Roger ' Staubach Morton was recovering from an operation on his arm when new injuries overtook him this season— a hurt elbow and then a gashed hand. His percentage dropped' from 58 per cent completions to about 30 per cent. ; ' Landry blames it on; lost timing due to missed practices. . "We hoped to get him caught up in the two weeks we bad before the Super Bowl] ann then he came down with. a throat infection," said Landry. "But he's ready to j worfc. again now and we have time to practice hard.. I don't think he'll be back at 58 per cent by game time, but I hope to get him back to about 50 per cent" Classifieds Pen West 108-107 over East guson won their matches. Brooks, Hawkins, Mahaney and Morris King by pins. I ! Tipton B winners were Stan .Eldridge, Stan Horton and Dick Shadday. Devil Coach Jay Huffman said Tipton hosts Peru this Thursday night with the reserve meet starting at 6:30 p.m. By JAMES F. COUR SAN DIEGO (UPl>-They can stop feeling sorry for little Lenny Wilkens. In one game Tuesday night,the player-coach of the Seattle SuperSonics Settled the score for everything that has happened to him this season. Wilkens," an 11-year veteran from Providence, was voted the Most. Valuable Player after scoring 21 points in a 108-107 victory by the West over the East in the National Basketball Association's All-Star game. Wilkens played only 20 of the 48 minutes in getting his game- high total as the West ended a three-year domination by the East "I was just relaxing and enjoying myself," the 33-year- old pro said. Alcindor has Equal Share As brilliant as Wilkens was,Lew Alcindor had an equal share in the West's win, only the Westerners' second in nine years. Alcindor, a member of an Eastern team which won by seven points last season, scored 19 points, grabbed 14 rebounds, blocked seven shots and got what proved to be the winning free throw. The man who may be ready to .start a Bill Russell-type dynasty at Milwaukee out­ played New York's Willis Reed, the MVP in this game a year ago. Reed, finished with 14 points and had 13 rebounds. Ironically, WHkens ' was removed by West Coach Larry Costello for Oscar Robertson with j3:31 to go -and the East leading, 101-100. "I wanted to get a bigger gurd in," Costello explained. Never Second Guess Coach "I'll never second guess a coach," Wilkens said with a grin. On a day he announced that the NBA might bring charges against the Sonics for signing Spencer" Haywood before his college glass graduated, Commissioner Walter Kennedy saw some humor in Wilkens' achievement. "I understand the East is protesting because the West used an ineligible player," Kennedy quipped. Alcindor banked in a five- footer with 48 seconds to go and was fouled by Gus Johnson. He converted and the West was ahead, 108-105. The East's Jo Jo .White made a field goal with 26/seconds left and the West staged out the clock. A San Diego International Sports Arena record crowd of 14,378 watched the game. .

He even takes shots at himself. "Pm not endowed as well mentally as I am physically," he says. Curtis means what he says, all right, but what he says is not true.. His physical attributes — blockhouse-type shoulders, chorus girl waistline, 235 pounds perfectly covering a 6-foot-2 frame—are there for the world to see. All you have to do is talk to him, though, and you know immediately there isn't anything wrong with bis mental processes either. He was not at the end of the line when brains were tended out. Admittedly what Mike Curtis does best is play football. The Colts' curly-haired 62-year-old linebacker was one of the few members of his ball club not to be embarrassed in the 16-7 Super Bowl loss to the Jets two years ago, and if you go by the form chart at all, he's a good bet. not to let the Dallas Cowboys embarrass him either in his second Super Bowl appearance Sunday. Is His Own Man Mike Curtis, is very much his own man. When the vast majority of other players stayed away from trining camp last summer because of the strike, he reported. He simply said be needed the work and nobody argued with him. The reason they didn't wasbecause everybody knows "• once Mike Curtis makes up his mind about something, forget it. The business about being called "the animal" began about two' years ago. Ray Nitchke, Green Bay's linebacker, had the name first and didn't like it at all. Curtis ' couldn't care less. "If that's what they want to call me, it's okay with me." He doesn't really think of himself as a n animal, does he? "My girl friend laughs wheneyer she hers them call me that," Curtis says. His girl friend is Marty Boone from Henderson, Ky., and come March 20 she won't be his girl friend anymore, she'll be Mrs. Mike Curtis. "She teaches retarded children so she's able to understand' me," Curtis says. Since all children are products of their parents and Mike Curtis is perceptive enough to realize this fact, I asked him which of his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Hrold M. Curtis, he felt he inherited his tremendous ggres- siveness from more. . -' Mike Replies .. v Curtis mulled the question a moment or so and said: "I think I get my aggressiveness from both arents, my mother more so. My father can be mean sometimes. I got that from him. Both my parents are persistent, you know, the nevr- give-up type.Bull .headed, you might even say. I'm bullheaded. :. "They are dominating but naturally they tell me things for my best interest. They've told me to control my temper more. Have I? Not complete- iy." .; . With all this, there is a strain of tenderness [running through big'violent Mike Curtis. What's more, he admits it. Question him, for example, how he'll feel if the Colts whip the Cowboys Sunday and - he says: •Ecstatic—providing we don't slide by or just win in some lucky way." ; And how bad will he feel if it winds up the other way wound? •••••• . i ' ' II ^Terribly so," he says. "I'll wonder if we'll ever be able to win a championship game. This will have been our second chance you know."

Bills Looking For New Home BUFFALO. N.Y. (UPl)- State, county .and city officials were stunned Tuesday when the Buffalo Bills of the National Football^. League looked to Seattle for a new home, "It's incredible," remarked Frank A. Sedita, mayor of Buffalo which saw its state university discontinue intercollegiate football only one day earlier and failed to keep the International League baseball Bisons from moving to Winnipeg last year when attendance dropped at War. Memorial Stadium— the' same facility Bills' owner Ralph C. Wilson, Jr., said he "could no longer live with." The Bills, broke what was perhaps this city's best kept secret in simultaneous announcements in Buffalo, where the club began 11 years ago, and in Seattle, where Wilson met" with civic leaders and viewed- the University of Washington Stadium. "The Bills' management is. fond of Buffalo and its fans, but has reached the point where it no longer can live with the stadium existing here," the statement read. j The Erie County Legislature, which tossed the question of a new stadium for four years and still remained undecided {on what to build, where to put it and who shall operate it, was in session when word reached the chambers. . j "It's catastrophic," said one legislator. j Gov. Nelson A. Rockefeller pledged the state "will continue . to do everything it can to hblp Erie County and the city solve its stadium problem and keep the BUls in Buffalo." But jan . aide, when asked what the state had done in the past, replied "working behind the scenesV— but could not be more specific. In Olympia, county lawmakers indicated they were preparing resolutions and bills in an effort to make {the University of Washington's stadium available for professional football. - .[ 'The new Gremlin..:uniquely styted, fun to drtM and now awan spunkier parfomwtca with tha blggait angina of . tha aubcompacta.
