Football players fight drug game WASHINGTON (AP) Rickie Harris and Mike Bass spend much of the year knocking down opponents for the Washington Redskins, but when they aren't playing football, they're knocking drugs. Harris and Bass, defensive backs for the Redskins, work in the off-season as consultants to the Office of Economic Opportunity. They travel around the country to explain the antipoverty agency's youth programs but also promote antidrug use. The two players got involved in the OEO program early last year when the agency changed its policy of spending money on summer activities to year round educational and job training programs. Cities which had been receiving funds for summer recreational programs weren't pleased with the change. . Albert E. Abrahams, assistant director for special programs, said the agency thought, that athletes could persuade local officials the summer programs were doing the job. Harris says: "The summer programs weren't helping the kids. It would keep them off the streets for three months but then they went back to school. And how about the kids who didn't go to school. We also found that the summer programs were aimed at those six to 13. They weren't even touching the older kids who were the Southwestern gets wrestling victory PIASA — Southwestern High School defeated Illinois Braille Sightsaving School of Jacksonville in a wrestling match here Monday night, 4313.

While on tour last summer, just prior to the preseason Redskins camp, Harris and Bass got involved in New York with March 'on Drugs, a national sports committee to help fight drug abuse among America's youngsters. "We tried to work with them but we went to camp and just couldn't get with them," said Harris. "So Mike and I decided to do our own thing." THe two players were booked on television shows by the antipoverty agency in many of the cities in which the Redskins played last fall — Philadelphia, Dallas, St. Louis, New York and San Francisco. "Some of our discussions get pretty heated but these kids can relate with us. They know Mike and I know where it's at. Mike is from Ann Illini host Wisconsin tonight CHICAGO (AP) — Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa and Northwestern — all losers in their Big Ten basketball home openers Saturday — are going to try to get even the hard way tonight. All four hit the road in quest • of initial conference victories with Minnesota traveling to Indiana in what should be the feature game. The Minnesota-Indiana squabble pits a pair of sophomore sensations — George McGinniS' of Indiana and Jim Brewer of Minnesota. McGinnis made his Big Ten debut Saturday with 38 points in a 101-90 victory over Northwestern. Brewer collected 30 points in his first Big Ten endeavor but the Gophers were upset by Purdue 83-76. Purdue will get a chance to win its second straight at home against Northwestern. Illinois, the only home team to win in Saturday's ^opening round, takes on Wisconsin while Iowa, last year's champion, seeks its first victory at Michigan State. Michigan and Ohio State, both winners Saturday, are idle. Arbor Mich, and I'm from Watts. I saw guys in schools who were better athletes than I ever will be die from drugs. I tell the kids about these guys and they know I know where it's at. ''It's not like some bureaucrat coming in and telling them they shouldn't take drugs."

(AP Wirephoto) South Carolina slips to 6th in latest poll By ED SCHUVLER AP Sports Writer North Carolina is a long way from the lop and Maryland is just getting mention, but they are the reasons why South Carolina is no longer shadowing No. 1 UCLA in The Associated Press' major college basketball poll. North Carolina beat South Carolina 79-64 and then Maryland upset the Gamecocks 3130 in overtime last week, causing them to drop from second to sixth in the poll of sports writers and sports- Supreme Court's decision \ gives Ali the green light By The Associated Press Muhammad Ali heads for Miami Wednesday to start training for his March heavyweight championship showdown against Joe Frazier after being given a green light by the Supreme C«urt. The Court said Monday it would hear arguments, probably to April, on All's claim that he was a conscientious objector when he refused induction into the Army 3% years ago. The decision cleared the way for the championship bout. 1 "J'ra relieved," said Ali "Now I can concentrate on the light. I am happy, very happy that the Supreme Court has, agreed to hear the case and eliminate any problem with the fight. Now I am going to show who the real champion of the world is." Ali refused induction into the Army April 28, 1967 and was subsequently indicted and convicted one month later. On ' June 20, 1067, U.S. District Court Judge Joe Ingraham imposed a $10,000 fine and fiveyear prison sentence on the boxer. Ali was stripped of his title by most boxing commissions and also lost his license. He was freed on $5,000 bond while his lawyers threaded the tedious paths of appeal, rehearing and appeal again. He was not allowed to fight again untfl last October. $ Since Own, be has whipped Jerry Quarry and Oscar Bon- avena to earn the showdown match with Frazier March 8. In Miami, Ali's trainer, Angelo Dundee was anxious to set up camp and begin training for the Frazier tilt. Dundee said he had imported four Frazier-style punchers to spar with All. The challenger's brother, Rahman All, will also act as a sparring partner, Dundee said. In another decision Monday, the Supreme Court refused to' review baseball's exemption from ajiti-trust legislation, virtually killing the suit of ex- American League umpires Al Salerno and Bill Valentine, who claimed they were fired in 1968 for trying to organize an umpire's union. The two umpires had sued American League President Joe Cronin and Commissioner Bowie Kuhn for triple damages, alleging they violated federal anti-trust 1 a ws by conspiring in restraint of interstate commerce. The case was dismissed by Manhattan U.S. District Court Judge Thomas F. Croake Dec. 10, 1069, a decision upheld by the Circuit Court July 13, 1970. The courts cited a 1922 S/u p r e m e Court decision reaffirmed in 1953, that antitrust laws. The two umpires needed four votes by Supreme Court justices to hear the case but only Justice William 0.

The National Basketball Association was idle. Dumpier, who wound up hitting just two-for-five from the charity line, surpassed the mark of 56 set in 1959 by Bill Sharman of the NBA's Boston Celtics.

Alton Evening Telegraph Tuesday^ Jan. 12^1971 IMJ 5-9 own in pro ranks SAN DIEGO (UPI) - The marathon NBA schedule is to us about half over and look who's still on the roster of the San Diego Rockets. Alvin Murphy, that's who. And he hasn't grown an inch. At 5-foot-9, Murphy's ability to play with the Giants of pro basketball may be the individual sports story of t h e year. It's an incredible accomplishment. "I know the public doubted my ability," the littlest man in the NBA s;iid. "But I never had any doubts. Never. I've always had confidence in my game." Pro basketball pundits doubted Murphy would be able to play in the league where many of his rival guards are a half foot taller — and more. They felt his size would be too much of a handicap on defense. You just, don't stop a Jerry West or an Oscar Robertson when you're 5-9. "My defense really hasn't been that much of a problem," the San Diego Rookie declared. "I'ye had teams try to take me under the bucket to try to take advantage of my size. But we've got a defense set up for this. "And I'm much quicker than a lot of other guards. T can do a lot of things just because of my size." In the Rockets' first 40 games this season, Murphy averaged nearly 14 points in about half a game of playing time. With Larry Siegfried hurt, coach Alex Hannum has four guards including Murphy. The others were Su Lantz, Ernie Williams and Johnny Gan.

TORONTO (AP) - Welterweight Clyde Gray of Toronto signed Monday for a title bout Feb. 18 witli Canadian champion Donato Paduano of Montreal in tho Montreal Forum. Paduano, ranked No. 3 in the world, and Gray have identical records, each losing once and winning 27 times. MANILA (AP) — The World Boxing Council today named heavyweight champion Joe Frazier Boxer of the Year and new featherweight titleholder Kuniaki Shibata of Japan Boxer of the Month. Frazier successfully defended the heavyweight title against challengers Jerry Quarry and Bob Foster. Shibata dethroned Vicente Saldivar of Mexico via a 18th- round technical knockout Dec. 11. WILDEY DtBWIBM (GP) GRAND —COMING FBI. JOE NAM ATI I "C, C, & COMPANY" Murphy compares himself with the Rockets' talented center, 6-9 Elvin Hayes. "Elvln is small for Ms position by pro standards. But his jumping ability makes him a great pro center. He's proved what he can do offensively and defensively. "So size has nothing to do with it. It's a question of ability." One man who didn't doubt that Murphy would make it is Bill Russell, the former Boston Celtic great. Said Russell before the season began: "Calvin Murphy belongs in the NBA. He will be an outstanding pro player." Married and the father of a young daughter, the former University of Niagara All- America says his enthusiasm for basketball has somewhat ebbed since he became a pro.
