LEE NORMAN TOBLEMAN, 6-4 LA MAROUE JIM NICHOLSON, 6-3 PASADENA DAVJD CULLEN, 6-7 TeCASCiTY ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — The future of Mickey Mantle, Tommy Davis, Orlando Cepeda, Robin Roberts and a long thin line of veteran baseball players may be determined in the next few weks as the big league clubs get ready for the nw season. Mantle still is recuperating from shoulder surgery and will not report to the Yanks' camp at Fort Lauderdale until the end of the week. He became a part- time player last season when Manager Johnny Keane shifted him to left field from his old center field job. His batting average sagged to .255 and his home run production to 19 for limited appearances in 122 game*. Although the Yanks are prepared to give Mantle his usual 5100,000 contract, there are doubts about the super star. Last year he couldn't throw and he had trouble swinging the bat. The shoulder surgery is supposed to hav e cured that. But Mantle still has those same heavily taped knees and the scars of many operations.

There is now such a basket- jail team in District 12-4A, but it would take a consolidation of lie schools and likely, the title "coach" would be changed to "overseer" for the fortunate soul to end up with thi s elite quintet. The 1965-'66 all district team !rom 12-4A represents five different high schools and offers more to the coach's imagination lian any assembled under the 12-4A roof in years past- Led by Ball High's Bill Brown, the loop's most valuable player, the newest version dream team averages that even 6-4 and carries a 26.8 per man scoring average, along with a 95.8 per ;ame scoring average over a 14-game period, or 1,342 points between the five of them. Behind Brown comes Robert £. Lee's Fred Hand and fellow -7 comrade David Cullen of Texas City. LaMarque's 6-4 mir- acleman, Norman Tobleman, and Pasadena's 6-3 Jim Nicholson rounds out the newest cage product. Nicholson holds the destinction of being last season's most valuable player, being displaced this season when Brown drew 72 of the possible 80 points on the coaches ballots. Brown and Nicholson are the only first-team repeaters from he past season, while Cullen, €and and Tobleman were second team choices for last year. Robert E. Lee Ganders also ilaced one performer on the second team, 6-0 guard Larry ?itre, and one man on the honorable mention squad, S-3 guard Richard Oliver. Hand turned out to be the hird leading scorer in the district with 289 points over the 14- distinction of being the free ;ame haul, while Pitre held the hrow leader for the second consecutive year. Pitre pitched in 104 free throws sharing tri-captain honors with Hand and Pitre, and pitched in 116 district points. Hand's loop total came on 103 field goals, which he hit with 50.7 per-cent accuracy, and 83 free throws, which came with 67,5 accuracy, second on the Gander sheet to Pitre's 78.2 per cent from the charity line. OUVer was REL's second re- bounder with 72 grabs, over half fewer than Hand's 151 loop snatches. Brown turned out to be the loop's top scorer, hitting for 333 points in the 14 games. The Ball pounds and got 201 district rebounds. Texas dry's Cullen and Pasadena's Nicholson ended up with 206 district points apiece and Nicholson edged Cullen out in the coaches' ballot by a mere two points. Cullen grabbed off 125 loop rebounds and hit for a 52.2 per cent from the field and 57.5 from the free throw line for the champion Stings. One interesting point for Cullen is the fact that he controlled "b per cent of the tips that he was in and has 215 pounds to High guard, who had his team's throw around under the boards entire offense centered around ion his 6-7 frame. Cullen had only four district violations and five bad passes during the entire campaign, denoting him as a pretty steady performer. Nicholson hit 44.9 per cent of his field goals and 71-7 per cent of his district free throws, while getting 154 rebounds and being praised as one of the most aggressive and smoothest operator in the district"Of Course one reason he did him, scored 30 points or more 10 during the pre-district schedule. On three district occasions Brown hit 43 against Galena Park. 3S against Galena Park and 35 against loop champion Texas City. On the Baytown scene, Hand's best night came against Galena Park also, where he hit 35 points and latched onto 21 rebounds. Pitre hit 32 points in the district opener against the Pasadena Eagles.

Official cancellation of the bout was expected Monday when the Illinois Athletic Commission was scheduled to meet again. A spokesman for Main Bouts, Inc.. owning closed circuit television rights to the virtually- cancelled Chicago match, said three cities were receptive to taking over the bout. The MBI spokesman, Bob Aaron, declined to identify the possible sites of a bout ahead of Clay's likely April induction into the Army, but a Pittsburgh promoter said he was offered the match bj- Clay interests. In an incredible series of events Friday, the scheduled Clay-Terrell bout in Chicago was blown sky high when: 1—Clay testily refused to apologize before the Illinois State Athletic Commission for his "unpatriotic remarks" in an outburst eight days ago when his Louisville. Ky., Draft Board reclassified him 1-A. 2—The three-member boxing commission hastily recessed until Monday after Clay's assertion that he didn't come from his Miami training camp to "make a showdown plea or apologize the way the press said I would." 3—Atty.
