Reeberg, Lions rookie facfcfe, dies at 21 DETROIT (UPI) — "His loss is hard for me to comprehend." That was the way John Gordy, veteran guard of the Detroit Lions, today attempted to explain the sudden death of Lucien Reeberg, the 21-year-old rookie tackle of the Lions who died Friday of "cardiac failure brought on by uremic poisoning." "Only a few weeks ago Lucien was telling me that he was going to get married soon," Gordy said with tears in his eyes. "It's a great loss to the Lions . . . and to all who knew Lucien." Reeberg, a native of New York, was one of the biggest men in the National Football League. He packed 290 pounds on his 6-4 frame. A stunned William Clay Ford who recently took over as sole owner of the NFL club, said Reeberg's death came as a "great shock to me."

Thompson, team physician who also attended Reeberg at the Detroit Osteopathic Hospital where he died, said "Lucien had a long history of uremia, but as in the case of so many young people, it was what we call a 'fluctuating' disease. •The disease will crop up one day and not the next," Thompson said, "and as a result of this, the young people tend to ignore the disease." Thompson said further tests would be performed on Ree-i berg's body. ] Ford said Reeberg's death | "was a great loss to his fam-j ily, to me, the Detroit Lions' and the National Football League.

Lap of luxury Sonny Liston living it up in $100,000 mansion By OSCAR FRALEY UPI Sports Writer MIAMI BEACH (UPI) — Be ing heavyweight champion of the world has brought Sonny Liston a long way from the sharecropper's cabin in Arkansas from which he started. Liston, as he prepares for his title defense against lippy Cassius Clay at Miami Beach Convention Hall on Feb. 25, is living not only in the lap of luxury but in the neighborhood, too. His living quarters are a S100, 000 mansion on exclusive Pine Tree Drive. A circular driveway fronts the house, which is right next door to the residence of New York Yankee owner Dan Topping. A scrolled gate leads into a walkway with terraced arches and the patio in the rear looks out to where a motor cruiser is docked on the Intracoastal Waterway. Liston is not cramped for breathing space in this 15-room hacienda and his eyes are appreciative of its gleaming white Clay making most of being underdog MIAMI BEACH (UPI) — Heavyweight challenger Cassius Clay is making the most out of his underdog status in the Feb. 25 title bout. To his self - given title of "the greatest," he has added "the gambler's dream." "Everybody's gonna get rich betting on Cassius Clay," the Louisville lip said Friday, after learning he was a 6-1 underdog against Sonny Liston. While the 22-year-old challenger was talking, the heavyweight champion was pounding away at sparring partnerj Jesse Bowdry. At one point, Liston drove his first into Bowdry's stomach, doubling up the sparring mate. "Layoff, Sonny, don't try to kill him," warned trainer Willie Reddish. It took several minutes for Bowdry to recover enough to resume the workout.'white house on Pine Tree Drive. facade. From here he goes out three times daily in orderly pre paration for his clash with Clay. Takes Cadillac To Gym The first time is at 6 a.m. when he does his roadwork. Then, at noon, he goes for a mile walk. And at 1 p.m. he climbs into his waiting Cadillac and drives to the Surfside Auditorium for his daily workout. As the time for the workout nears, Liston's mind only then turns fully to the job at hand. When the car pulls out of the driveway his conversation is all about the fight. "That Clay don't bug me," he insisted as the car moved into traffic. "But after all his yakity- yack I want to see what he can do in the ring." He falls silent momentarily, his big-muscled bulk relaxed on the cushions. And he ponders each question put to him. "It wouldn't do me no good to look at how Clay fights," he says. "I don't think he'll try to carry the fight to me. But I'll just fight my own fight. That's the only way to do it." People standing on a corner as the car stopped for a light recognized him and waved. Liston waved back. Likes Being Champ "It feels good to be champion," he volunteered, "and it's good to see people smiling and waving. It's a lot different that the old days. Now I don't have to pinch myself to realize I'm the champion. But I knew I was going to be champion after I beat Cleveland Williams in Houston." That was four years ago. After flattening Williams in two rounds, Liston dusted off Roy Harris, Zora Folley and Eddie Machen en route to his title shot at Floyd Patterson and a first round knockout to win the championship at Chicago in September of 1962. The car stopped in front of his training quarters and Liston stepped out, saying, "Well, it's time to go to work. But it sure seems like a lot of trouble for a job that shouldn't take more than 15 minutes." Then he walked into a bustling gym that was miles apart from the serenity of that big Palm Springs and Santa Monica. In matches between the girls, Jill Ha wes def. Betsy Cook 6-1; Vicky Bruckart def.
