MAIN 582-4380 All To Show Up- All Coaches 'Scared' In Pre-Tourney Talk AUSTIN' (AP) — To hear a coach tell it. his team's opponent at the state schoolboy basketball tournament is the best in Texas. They say they're so scared they may not show up for the tournament. But they will—for three days of basketball which will decide state champions in five confer- A, AA, AAA and ences—B, AAAA. It all starts today at 8:45 a.m. with Deweyville, runner-lip last year i n B, and Kopperl meeting in the first game. Championship games are scheduled for Saturday. Despite coach-talk the 22-team field looks well-balanced, with 13 schools making the trip to the state tournament for the first time. There are two defending champions. Snook in B and Lake Worth of Fort Worth in A. A sample of pre-tournament coaches' comments looks like this: "Everybody I've talked to says we'll be lucky to stay within 20 points of them, but we're going to show up." said Austin McCallum Coach Frank Rundell of his team's first-round opponent, Dallas Samuell, in AAAA. Countered Samuell Coach J. W. Black: "How about that? We draw Austin McCallum first on Friday and we know the least about it—They have the credentials to be tough—good height, good shooters and a fine record (22-7). Told his team was a favorite in the big school conference, Black said, "We feel honored in a way. but any of the others certainly rated as well." The other AAAA schools are Lubbock Monterey and Houston Memorial. In Class AAA, boasting four strong teams—Kilgore, San Antonio Marshall, Andrews and Clear Creek—the coaches are teams with a wary eye. Clear Creek's Bill Krueger said he had a sinking feeling when he found out his squad would open up against Kilgore Ted Dockery says he doesn't see how any team could be tougher than Andrews, his first- round foe. Duane Vincent, coach of the AA Rockdale Tigers, looked at his team's Worth, and opponent, said "I've Lake heard from some sources that they're better than they were last year (when they won the title)...We haven't played any team which season.

White, 19, was a student from Cochituate, Mass. He did not play freshman football at SMU but had gone out for the varsity in spring training. Working on defense, he had just completed a maneuver against blocking and was awaiting his second turn when he slumped to the ground. Emergency resuscitation was performed by trainer Eddie the team physician. Montreal Sought— Championship Fight Skips Across Border Lane and Dr. Sam MONTREAL (AP) — Scorned by New York and kicked out ot Chicago, the Cassius Clay-Ernie Terrell heavyweight title bout skipped across the border to Montreal today for a hoped-for showing on the same date, March 29. Bangor, Maine; Louisville, Clay's native city; and even Huron, S.D., had been mentioned as possible U.S. sites for the politically explosive fight until Main Bout, Inc., settled on Montreal Wednesday. MBI, headed by Mike Malitz of New York and including Black Muslims among its stockholders, has the rights to the closed-circuit television and other ancillary income (movies, broadcasts, foreign showings, etc.) which usually adds up to millions, or the main share of the gross receipts. After the Illinois Athletic Commission, by a 2-1 vote, thumbed down the fight which Morgan, and White they originally licensed on Feb. was taken to Baylor Hospital. He died 8 hours later — at 1:20 a.m. He was the son of Mr. and Mrs. Ernest White. The father flew here early today from Massachusetts, where he is a salesman. White, 170-pounder, SMU last fall from entered prep school. Although he did not play freshman football, he was in intramural football. He went out for the varsity without scholarship. He had taken part in the out- of-season program which started Jan. 20, when he was given a physical. White's was the second football death at Southern Methodist in four years. In 1962 Mike Kelsey, a center on the SMU team, died after collapsing in 110-degree heat the day of fall practice. second 8, Malitz, in New York, announced Montreal, a sports-loving Canadian city with a metropolitan population of 2% million as the fight site. The Montreal Athletic Commission was scheduled to meet today to determine whether a license would be issued for the bout in th 15,000-seat Montreal Forum. Loren Cassina, owner of All- Canada Sports Promotions Ltd. in Toronto, has made an application for the bout. It was an outburst by Clay that apparently doomed the bout in Chicago. Shortly after Clay's draft board in Louisville reclassified him to 1-A and made him eligible for the military draft, the 24-year-old undefeated champion made remarks about the in Viet Nam — remarks called "unpatriotic'* and "disgusting" by Gov. Otto Kerner of Illinois. Mayor Richard Daley of Chicago also said he did not want the fight in the city. Clay refused to make an apology suitable to the governor and the commission and the The Aggies and Methodists have 10-3 records and are two >ames ahead of Texas Tech, which has no chance of figuring in the title but can have a big say in where it is to go. If the Aggies and Mustangs both win tonight, they will then be declared co-champions but will have to play at Waco Monday night to decide the league's representative in the NCAA playoffs. Texas and Baylor meet at Waco and Texas Christian and Rice battle at Houston in other closing games tonight.

Clark, Illinois' attorney-general, found technical irregularities in the licensing of the fight and other reasons to deny a permit, and then tossed the matter back into the commission's lap. Chairman Joe Triner and Joe Robichaux voted to deny the permit application while Lou Radzienda cast his vote in favor of the fight. In Miami, Fla., Clay, who prefers to be called by his Muslim name of said he was Muhammad Ali, disappointed the fight would not be in the United States. He added, ho*r"ver, that "if Illinois wanted 10 call off the fight, they have a right to."

Willard Stafford, special counsel for the state and the legal team's chief prosecutor, continued Wednesday to try and linkj the "compelling financial per-j sonal problems" of the Braves' owners with their decision to! transfer the franchise. Stafford said as much in his opening statement when he re-j marked that "the Braves moved because the new owners wanted' to pay off indebtness of S3! million which they had creat-i ed." 1 And he proceeded with thatj line as he called his first wit-1 nesses — Ralph Delforge, for-i rner secretary-treasurer of thej Braves, and Gordon Volz, a certified public accountant from Madison, Wis. Delforge testified that the club showed cash profits in 1963 and 1964 — part of the period in which the team's owners contend they lost $3.5 million. Volz made some projections on Delforge's figures. They were highly technical. They also wer e highly objectionable to the defense. Bowie Kuhn, National League attorney, asked that a standing objection to all questions on the subject be noted by the court "The basic issue in the case," said Stafford, "is what caused them to leave. We say borrowing led to the move. We say they left because they had thin equity and had to make money fast "We want to show what the compelling financial personal problems were so you can see the compelling reason they had to move." Circuit Judge Elmer Roller, who eventually will rule in the case that tests th e structure of baseball, allowed Stafford to continue. Before Stafford began probing witnesses, Kuhn made an opening statement and laid out the defense that likely will be used by the National League and its 10 teams as the trial progresses. Dealing individually with demands made in the suit by the state, Kuhn contended: 1. Return of the Braves to Milwaukee "would destroy them financially." 2. Such a return has been prohibited by a state court In Georgia and a federal court in Texas- 3. Expansion of the National League "is not only impossible but prohibited" by the Texas order.
