REPUBLIC Bill. I ..DO ft Phoenix, Thnrs., April 3,1969 BOYER SCORES — Atlanta Braves' Clete Boyer finds home plate crowded by Cincinnati catcher Pat Corrales, but scores anyway in yesterday's AP Wirepholo game at Tampa, Fla. Boyer scored from second base on Dave Adlesh's single to right field. Results, next page. Top jumper flunks out GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Ron Jourdan, University of Florida's star high-jumper, has flunked out of school but may still have a chance for readmission. "Ronnie was keeping up such a heavy travel pace that it was bound to catch up with him," said track coach Don Hester. "We're hoping he can work it out. It would be a tragedy for such talent to go to waste." "Right now," Hester added, "Ronnie is ineligible to participate because he is not in school." Jourdan, who holds the U.S. high jump record of 7 feet, 2 inches, and cleared seven feet 16 times in meets during the winter, missed.a biology test on one of his trips and was given an incomplete grade in the course. Incomplete is the same as a failing grade but it can be made up. Jourdan will attempt the test later this week, but even if he passes he must petition the university for readmission for the spring term starting Monday.

(AP) - Bonn Clendenos, who threw the baseball world into confusion by suddenly retiring last month, has changed his mind and signed with Montreal, the Expos announced yesterday. The Expos, in a prepared statement, said Clendenon signed a two-year contract for an undisclosed amount and will report immediately from his Atlanta home to the Expos Class A farm club in West Palm Beach, Fla. He was expected to join the Expos in 10 to 14 days after he gets in shape. John McHale, general manager of the Expos, who signed the 33-year-old former Pittsburgh first baseman to the pact, said Clendenon was able to arrange his business matters to play ball. "I love baseball," Clendenon said, "and had hated the thought of leaving the game or hurting a team or anyone connected with baseball. However, my personal business problems have been such Maravich nixes pros BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — Press Maravich, Louisiana State University basketball coach, says he has turned down an offer to coach in the professional American Basketball Association. Maravich told the Baton Rouge Morning Advocate in a story in yesterday's edition that an offer to coach the new Carolina Cougars was an attractive one but that he had decided to remain at LSU. "I enjoy working with athletes on the college level," said Maravich. "I must admit, the Cougars' offer was impressive. The ABA is gaining momentum and I think it's here to stay." The Carolina team was formerly the Houston Mavericks. that it appeared impossible to play this year. I regret the confusion this caused baseball." Clandenon's change of mind, however, created new confusion and unanswered questions Clendenon had been picked by the new Expos from Pittsburgh in last October's major league expansion draft, and then was traded to Houston with Jesus Alou for Rusty Staub. It was then that Clendenon announced his retirement to take an executive position with a pen company in Atlanta, leaving Houston shorthanded in the trade. To add to the confusion, Staub said he would not return to Houston if the .trade was nullified. \ . Baseball Commissioner Bowie Kuhn ruled that the trade would stand and that Montreal would have to send the Astros another player agreed upon by both clubs. series set TUCSON-University of Arizona and University of Iowa open a five-game baseball series today with a doubleheader on UA field.

(UPI) Robyn Smith, who prefers a riding career to an acting one, makes her debut at Golden Gate Fields today when she shoots for victory in the third race on a horse which never has won. The 24-year-old Miss Smith, who passed up a career as an actress in order to become a jockey, has been given permission by the Golden Gate board of stewards to ride Swift Yorky. The Stewards will view her performance closely and then give her another chance on another day before deciding if she can make it as a jockey. Miss Smith has applied for an apprentice license but in her race today she will not be riding as an apprentice. Apprentice jockeys usually are granted a five pound weight concession. She is under a three year contract to Kjell Ovale. Swift Yorky, a 'three year old, has started three times at Golden Gate this year and has yet to win, although he finished third in his last two outings. Today's race will be over six furlongs.
