(AP) -Speed of (lie college All-Star football linemen drew praise today from defensive line coach Mike Scar- r.V. "It's (he fastest group I've had since .coaching All-Star teams," said Scarry. "As for the line backers, Bobby Boll (Minnesota) is the best outside line backer I've seen in cnmp. He's got all tile moves and is as quick as a cat. "Lee Roy Jordan (Alabama) and Lee Roy Caffey (Texas A & M) form tlie best center line backing team I've had." Bell won Wednesday's time trials for linemen. In full football gear, he sprinted 50 yards in 5.85. There were raised eyebrows when the biggest man on the squad, 270-pound tackle Junious Buchanan of Grambling, was clocked in 6.15. Tom Tresh reached a personal high when he hit 20 homers as a rookie for the Yankees in 1962. His previous higli was 15.

(AP)-A distracting influence named Cassius Clay inflicted himself Thursday on the battle site of Monday night's Sonny Llston-Floyd Patterson heavyweight title fight with such reactions as: "Who asked him out here?" This came from the promoters Who would just as soon hear from CasslUs later. "Who Is that?" Sonny Lislon made dial inquiry. "I definitely have confidence thai I can win; that 1 Will. Whether 1 win, I do not know." This conic from ex«champion Patterson, who was speaking for himself, and was unaware at the moment Uial Cassius The Great was In town. Clay was not long In making his observations. It perhaps took five minutes before he got off the airplane from Louisville and headed for his luxurious suite at a Strip hotel, when he said (this is briefed down from a few thousand words): Lislon will win In two or three rounds and will have to meet Clay In September. "If I'm not ready, Who is?" demanded Cassius. "Name me another contender who can whip me." Lislon wound up his sparring session Wednesday and Patterson is about to conclude his serious training.

Racing authorities said they are convinced that a doping gang with Immense monetary backing now is operating on British tracks. The Jockey Club, blue blooded dicators of the British turf, look (he unprecedented step of offering a $5,600 reward for anyone who can stop the dopers. Even more unusual, it offered an amnesty for any trainer, jockey or stable boy who talks. Previously anyone with Ihe remotesl connection with doping was auto mntlcally barred from the tracks. Watched by Queen Elizabeth and the royal family, French- owned Relko slormed home May 29 to win the $98,947 Epsom Derby by an easy six lengths at odds of 5-1. Routine salvia tests were made immediately after his victoryi The Daily Express said these tests suggest that Relko was given a stimulant. Other papers said as much without naming the horse.

H.v CttAttl'tSS CHAMIlfcHLAIN Associated Press Sports Writer CHICAGO (AP)-Chick Evans, still playing tournament golf, reached his 73rd birthday today with some startling observations. "The modern tournament pros buy their game In the golf shops," said the spry old timer who arose from the caddy ranks to win the U.S. Open and Amateur, the Western Open and eight Western Amateurs.

"I know for a fact that Bobby poek(<l«l a $25,000 cheek from lack Wnrner (Warner Bros, slu- dio in Hollywood) after ho won !he National Open nl Intprladicn prior to Ihe U.S. Amateur. II was tor his appearance in a golf movie. In my judgment, that certainly made him a pro." Evans still has the ruddy, boyish face that made him the boy wonder of Rolf nearly half con- lury ago. His somewhat bitter fueling toward Jones, regarded by many as the world's greaiest golfer, never has been a secret. "In J9HJ-.1918, 1 took Jones around wilh me for more than 10,000 miles playing Red Cross benefits," said Chirk. "1 think ho will admil be learned a lot of golf from mo. "But when he became a t-batn- pion, I giuiess be got loo bic for me. He turned down my requests to make appearances. "Jones developed his game wilh his clubs r.ither than his skull. When I bent him 1-np for Ihe 1920 Western Amateur al Memphis, be h;id '>'! clubs in his bag. I had seven. Vivid in f'A'.'ins' memory is when Jones trounced him 8 and 7 for the 1927 N;ilion;il Amateur in Minneapolis. "II wasn't the beating so milch MS Ihe way it was done," recalled Chick. "On Ihe firsl lee, Jones told me I bad teed my ball in front of Ihe markers. Later he called me for pulling my finger inlo Ihe grass (a habit I had formed) to tesl Us depth and thickness before hitting my ball on the fairway. "On what been me 'he last, hole of our match, I putted two inches from Ihe hole. I. thought he might concede Ihe two-inch putt. It would have given me Ihe hole and made Ihe match dormie seven. "I looked al him and he just stood there, about a yard from me, and stared at me. 1 went Up to my ball, and when I put my putter head down, it touched Ihe ball. "I looked up al Jones. 'The ball didn't move,' I said. 'It sure did,' Jones replied. "I just shook his hand and said: 'Congratulations for your fine victory' and walked away, "Jones was n powerful hitter, like Arnold Palmer and Jflck Nicklaus," Evans added. "Perhaps the best part of his game was the ability to sink long putts. He had to, because from 50 yards out he was pitiful. "Jones the greatest golfer? Not by a long shot, in my book. I know it's tough to argue against his record. But I don't think he. could hold a candle to Walter Hagen, when Walter really Want- eri to play, "There was the greatest." NOW OPEN 3 NIGHTS A WEEK-MON.
