bULLUUS 88 The Aritftm Republic Pfefteof*, FH., Aug. 14,1«« Chapter Z of Frazier vs. Cassius Anwctatcd Press ATLANTA— Promoters confidently proclaimed yesterday that the way is virtually clear lor a Joe Frazier — Cassius Clay heavyweight title fight in Atlanta, but Fra- zfer's manager immediately branded it nonsense. "It'i • lie. There is no truth to it at all," said Yank Durham in Stateline, Nev., where Frazier is appearing with his rock music group in the lounge of a casino-hotel on the shores of Lake Tahoe. Durham's, wet blanket was tossed over the proposed fight less than three hours after state Sen. Leroy Johnson said only the fighters' signatures on a contract stood in the way of an Oct. 26 bout in 5,00faeat City Auditorium. Clay, the former champion stripped of his title after conviction on charges of refusing to report for military service, attended the Atlanta news conference in which Johnson made his announcement. He said he would be willing to fight Frazier here. "I don't know who they are or what they are trying to do," Durham said when informed of Johnson's plans. "We aren't dickering with Cassius Clay. We aren't interested in dickering with Cassius Clay." Durham said if Clay had a license Frazier would fight him. "But he doesn't, and that is all there is to that," he said. Johnson said, however, Clay had been issued a license in Atlanta, all that is required in Georgia. "We have done what the law requires us to do," Johnson said. "We feel we are now in the running. There is no state law which would prevent the fight." Robert Kassel, a New York attorney whose Sports Action Inc. sponsored the Frazier-Ellis fight and would underwrite the Atlanta fight, also attended the news conference and said he was confident. "All that is really necessary now is for us to complete the negotiations with the fighters, sign the contract and have the fight," Kassel said. A number of city officials, including several aldermen and vice mayorMaynard Jackson attended the conference. Clay said little. "This is the latest try and wherever we can get it I'm ready," he said, speaking in a barely audible voice. The 28-year-old Clay said he would train in Atlanta 'and would have to work hard to shed 25 pounds of excess weight. He declined to forecast the outcome of the fight.

(AP) -Practice opened y e s t e r d a y for the Yankee 400 stock car race and for the first time in recent history the big stockers were equipped with a device to slow them down. The National Association for Stock Car Auto Racing (NASCAR) ordered that the machines be equipped with a special plate under their carburetors to limit the flow of fuel. The plate acts as a sort of governor on the engine's power. The new rule was immediately noticable in lap speeds turned at Michigan Interna- More about PGA golf Continued on Page 58 first PGA and looking for his first professional triumph.

The kickoff is scheduled for 5:30 p.m., Arizona time. Both teams, undefeated so far, will be bothered by injuries to key players. The Chiefs 'will be weak at the linebacker posts. Bobby Bell definitely is out of the action and rookies Clyde Werner and Bob Stein aren't expected to play. Bell has a spinal injury, Werner a pulled hamstring muscle and Stein a shoulder sprain. Baltimore's Johnny Unitas, despite a dislocated finger, is slated to start a quarterback. Offensive tackle Sam Ball and safety Jerry Logan are both Colts question marks. Ball has a sprained knee. If he doesn't play, regular right guard Dan Sullivan will step in. Ohio, Ginic. "After examination there Thursday." said Brown, "Greg decided he should undergo surgery. "They'll be doing an exploratory operation. They feel that the injury is a sheath of muscle that may have worked loose." Cook was placed on the unable to perform list, which puts him out of action for six weeks "but doctors feel that he will be lost for the season," Brown said. Cook's physician is Dr. Roger Collins, an orthopedic surgeon. Brown said Cook, who has complained of constant pain and has been unable to throw a football, suffered an injury during a pickup basketball game at the University of Cincinnati last February. He said a passing arm injury Cook suffered in 1969 against the Kansas City Chiefs was "c o m p 1 e t ely healed." Cook was named offensive rookie-of-the-year in 1969 for his first year performance in the American Football League.
