NBA owners revise rules REPUBLIC 5 REPUBLIC CITY MA"Friday, JUM », 1»7J SI The Arizona Republic D-8 i Associated Press LOS ANGELES - National Basketball Association club ,owners revised the format for their all-star game Thursday tind also made a coin flip virtually an impossibility to de- bide playoff spots. I Walter Kennedy, the NBA Commissioner, told newsmen that future all-star squads Avill consist of 12 players instead of the previous 14. , The requirement that one toll star represent each club was eliminated. Also changed was a rule that no more than three could come from any single club. In the future, an unlimited number can come from any one team, a rule which drew some opposition from clubs which felt they could be hurt by having too many players on an all-star squad. Eight of the 12 players will be selected by members of the media covering NBA teams. The other four will be chosen by coaches in each conference. Last season, Milwaukee and Los Angeles completed the regular season with identical records and a coin was flipped to determine their playoff positions. Milwaukee won the flip, but lost to San Francisco in the playoff series. Sharp criticism followed the Reichardt on waivers Associated Press vCHICAGO - The Chicago White Sox announced Thursday they have requested w.aivers for the unconditional release of outfielder Rick Rei- cHardt. Reichardt, 30, left the Sox dugout Tuesday night .in Chicago and failed to join the team on its trip to Anaheim fojr Wednesday night's game with the California Angels. A club spokesman said general manager Stu Holcomb made the decision to ask for Reichardt's unconditional release after "he was unable to contact Reichardt Wednesday and was advised by a business associate of Reichardt's that Reichardt did not intend to rejoin the team." Reichardt reportedly left the team because he was upset over his 1973 contract which has not been signed. He and infielder Mike Andrews are the two Sox players not signed for the 1973 season. The Sox obtained Reichardt in 1971 from the Washington Senators in exchange for pitcher Gerry Janeski. Reichardt originally was signed in 1964 by the California Angels. In eight seasons, Reichardt has batted .263 and hit 111 home runs. In 46 games this year, he was batting .275 with three home runs. decision to use a flip of the coin instead of a playoff game t6 determine the play* off position of the Bucks and Lakers. Kennedy outlined the new formula under which the first tiebreaker will be results of games between the deadlocked clubs. If a tie still exists, the league will take the results of conference games played by each of the clubs. The next criterion will be games in the clubs' own divisions. "If there still is a tie, and this is most unlikely, we will go to the point differential on games against each other and then to total points on the season," Kennedy said. Abe Pollin, owner of the Capitol Bullets, now located in Washington, D.C., .was reelected chairman of the board of owners. Kennedy said no legislative action on merger of the NBA and the American Basketball Association can be expected before the 1973-74 season is under way. The Board of Governors also approved § transfer of the Kansas City-Omaha franchise from Missouri Valley Pro Sports, Inc., to Kings Professional basketball Club, Inc. The new board chairman of the Kings is Ray Evans of Shawnee Mission, Kan., a former star basketball and football player at Kansas University. Joseph A. Axelson, who has been general manager since 1969 when the franchise was located in Cincinnati, remains president of the club.

On a long weekend a lot of drivers are so anxious to get out to those country breezes that they throw all caution to the wind. Because they're less cautious, it may pay for you to be a little more cautious. By driving a Volvo, for instance. The Volvo body is so strong we've stacked seven Volvos on top of one another without crushing the one on the bottom. What gives Volvo this strength are the six steel pillars surrounding the passenger compartment and the thousands of spot welds holding the body together. The trunk and engine compartments are designed differently. They crumple on impact at a ore-measured rate to absorb a collision before it reaches the passenger compartment. On the sides, steel anti-intrusion bars protect the passengers from lateral impact. And in front and back, hydraulic shock absorbers on the bumpers absorb low-speed collisions. But Volvo doesn't just protect you from "the other guy!' It can keep you from becoming "the other guy!' Disc brakes are designed to resist fading, even after repeated panic stops. So Volvo has disc brakes on all four wheels. And Volvo doesn't stop there. It has a braking system with two independent sets of three-wheel disc brakes. If one set fails, the other still gives you about LEASE PLANS AVAILABLE TEST DRIVE A VOLVO TODAY! 80% of your braking power. Of course, driver fatigue can be just as dangerous as mechanical failure. So Volvo comes with bucket seats that let you concentrate on the road instead of the pain in your back. The seat-backs are infinitely adjustable with a special adjustment that allows them to be made firmer or softer. And since you really can't concentrate on what's ahead of you when you're worried about what's behind you, Volvo has a rear window defroster. As well as rear door locks that children can't open from inside. So when making plans for a long weekend, maybe you should plan on buying a Volvo. There's nothing like being prepared for the holidays. !•>* VOLVO ft AM|«IC4 C EUROPEAN DELIVERY IF.DESIRED mm MOTORS PHONE: 248*9222 W. CAMtllACK AT 22nd AYE, ri.
