Bruce Wright, a lawyer for Cloverlay, Inc., which handles Frazier, said the bout was set for March 8 in New York. "No papers have been signed yet," said Wright, "but I can't see it not coming off, with all the work we have done in the last three weeks. It's not critical for me to be in New York Tuesday, but Frazier will be there. I am very satisfied with everything." The New York Daily News reported the .fight arrangements Sunday night. But a Garden spokesman said he did not know of any contract signing thus far and said negotiations are continuing. Houston's Astrodome also has been bidding for the 'bout.

The Yellow Jackets hit on 22 of 52 for .423 per cent. CM found the range on 25 of 69 for .362 per cent. Carey was well pleased with the Eagles free throw percentage. They made 21 attempts and 19 fell through, good enough for .905 per cent. New Athens hit 12 of 20 for .600 per cent. Civic Memorial led in the rebound department, 35-27.

(UPI Teleplioto) crop of backs Rematch may be on */ for pros neutral cage court CLEVELAND (UPI) — Pro football teams needing a quarterback will have a passel of good ones to pick from in January, according to Paul Bixler, veteran director of player personnel of the Cleveland Browns. Bixler said the top three prospects are Archie Manning o f Mississippi, Heisman Trophy winner Jim Plunkett of Stanford and Lynn Dickey o f Kansas State. The professional football draft will be held Jan. 28-29. " "Manning is the most elusive of the three," Bixler said. "He can run and he still has a gun for an arm. "Plunkett and Dickey are pro - style back - up passers. They all have great arms." Other quarterbacks who should go early in the draft are Rex Kern and Ron Maciejowski of ,0hio State; Chuck Hixson of SMU; Leo Hart .of Duke; Scott Hunter of Alabama; Dan Pastorini of Santa Clara and 'Don Moorhead of Michigan. Bixler said he believes Maciejowski will be drafted ahead of Kern, although he played substitute most of the season for Kern. '"But Kern will go higher than a lot of people think," he added. Bixler said there are also "some fine runners" up for grabs, including John Brockington-and Leo Hayden of Ohio State; Steve Worster of Texas and fullback Jjm Braxton of West Virginia. Tight end Jan White of Ohio State should "go very early" because he can play either wide receiver of- tight end, he said. Other positions were not so well represented on college teams this year, he believes. "There's a scarcity of linemen, offensive and defensive," he said, adding linebackers "are only fair this year." Bixler said Ohio State's Jack Tatum will be the first defensive player drafted, but added, "I think he'll be converted to an offensive back."

(UPI) — A scheduled , Jan. 9 rematch between South Carolina and Maryland may have to be held on neutral ground because of tensions generated by the last meeting which ended early in a fight. Acting Commissioner Norvall Neve Df the Atlantic. Coast Conference said the game would be played at the " Cole Fieldhouse on the University of Maryland campus "only if this office is completely convinced that it is safe and prudent to do so — otherwise, other arrangements will have to be made." The ACC service bureau said other arrangements would include selection of a neutral game site. The last meeting, at South Carolina's Carolina coliseum, ended with 4:52 left to'play and the Gamecocks ahead, 9670, after a tussle for a rebound erupted into a fight. Neve declared the results of the prematurely - halted contest official and indicated South Carolina was not lax in providing protection for the visitors. "I do not judge the University of South Carolina to be delinquent in providing adequate protection for visiting teams," Neve said. "What happened there could have happened anywhere there was sufficient motivation from some source." Parts of ^Neve's decision, which was sent to the schools earlier this week, were made public Wednesday. However, there was no public comment regarding disciplinary action against players or schools. Maryland Athletic Director Jim Kehoe said he could think of no reason why the game at Maryland should be cancelled. Kehoe said the fight at Columbia was "regrettalbe" but should not disrupt the "years of cordial and friendly relations between two great institutions." He expressed confidence that Maryland fans would receive South Carolina courteously and with hospitality. After the ill-fated contest, Maryland coach Lefty Dreisell, who said he was punched in the mouth by South Carolina's John Ribock, said "If I were South Carolina coach Frank McGuire, I wouldn't bring them up here. I don't mean we'd pay them back, but I'm afraid something could happen." Neve based his ruling on game films • and written reports with recommendations from the gajne officials, George Conley and Joe Pet dog kills 3'year'old tot CHENEQUA, Wis.

After four conference encounters, Doug Young of East St. Louis and Richard Knarr of Collinsville are setting the pace. Young has tallied 93 points in his four league outings for a 23.3 per - game average. Knarr is slightly off that mark as the -Kahok junior has totaled 92 counters for an even 23 points per contest.
