REPUBLIC 48 The A iblic El Phoenix, Wed., June 17,1970 THERE ARE SOME inherent evils in this 1970 method of selecting major league baseball's all-star teams. Today, aid is being solicited to amend a true injustice. If art official 7%-inch by S'/Wrich All-Star Ballot is within reach, perhaps you'll help. The ballot totally omits.Mel Famee. ' Perhaps you Overlooked Mel's moment. Several did. Small for his size, Mel Famee was 5-10, 155, an outfielder who had never hit well but was poor defensively. Recently, you may recall the Milwaukee Brewers were in severe straits, (a small town near Green Bay). They needed pitching help, and summoned bodies from the minors. Draft rule to aid All ATLANTA (AP) - An attorney for Muhammed Ali, formerly Cassius Clay, says the exheavyweight boxing champion may win draft status as a conscientious objector on the strength of a recent Supreme Court decision. The Supreme Court exempted Monday from military service all young men who oppose war on strong ethical or moral grounds, even if this opposition is not based on religious belief. Ali had asked to be classified as a conscientious objector because of membership in the Black Muslim faith. Reber Bolt, an attorney for the American Civil Liberties Union, which is defending Ali, said that an earlier decision by the U.S. Court of Appeals did not doubt Ali's sincerity in his objection to war, but instead said the court felt that Black Muslims were primarily a political and racial rather than religious organization. Bolt said the court's latest decision could end the litigation. The case recently was argued again before the U.S. Court of Appeals, but there was no immediate decision. In Philadelphia, Cassius isn't talking. "I've got nothing to say," Clay replied when asked for comment on the U.S. Supreme Court decision. "Even if I did have a reaction I wouldn't say anything," said Clay, the dethroned heavyweight champion. "Seems everytime I open my mouth I get myself in trouble." Gary Wood signs with Rough Riders OTTAWA (AP) - Quarterback Gary Wood, a six-year National Football League veteran released by the New York Giants, signed a one- year contract yesterday with the Ottawa Rough Riders of the Canadian Football League. The maladroit Mel Famee Famee was among those promoted. The fact he had never pitched and had a history of unruly cuticles deterred neither the Brewers nor Famee. He was immediately thrust into a dangerous situation (created by the fact that EVERY Milwaukee Brewer situation is dangerous and quitted himself questionably. Milwaukee writers already were hailing him as a potential hero—a sort of majestic cross between a rentable force and a movable object! Famee was in trouble in the opening inning of his first game, but settled down considerably after returning to the dugout to get his glove. Famee walked the first two batters he faced, but threw four consecutive balls to the third one. He called timeout to alert the catcher that the bases were loaded. Then he walked in three runs. It was 0-3 against Milwaukee after an inning, and Famee caused some raised eyebrows when he tripped over the third base line en route to the mound for inning No. 2. His first pitch sailed into centerfield. Working more rapidly, Famee walked one batter on only two pitches, He loaded the bases once again. Then twice sgain. After scattering a double in the third, Famee yielded a three-base triple and a standup single in the fourth, plus seven walks. Mel Famee decidedly was in trouble. Suddenly he strode purposefully from the mound, made his way to the clubhouse, reached the parking lot and left in a huff (a small Polish sports car). He had issued a total of 19 walks in four innings. Some two hours later, the opposing team was en route to the airport when its bus passed an overturned car in which Mel Famee lay snoring peacefully, his arms cradling a case of Schlitz. ' The team's manager investigated, then summoned his players to the scene. "Men," he intoned, "this is the beer that made Mel Famee walk us." Mel's abbreviated brush with stardom is often overlooked.
