Page 12-THE HERALD, Provo. Utah, Thursday, April 10, 1975 Hires Foster Hanratty PGA, Players Division Call Truce CLEMSON, S.C. (UPI) Clemson University named Bill Foster of the University of North Carolina at Charlotte Wednesday as its new head basketball coach. Foster signed a five year contract to succeed Tates Locke, who resigned amid investigations into his recruiting practices. Locke had taken Clemson, which had been the perennial patsy of the basketball crazy Atlantic Coast Conference, to a level of respectibility last season with a 17-11 record—the Tigers best in eight years. Foster, a native of Hemingway, S.C., has an overall coaching record of 198^9. He was named head coach at Charlotte in 1969 and has coached that team to an 88-38 record. Foster said he would begin work at Clemson immediately and he wants to talk to the players as soon as possible. "I can't tell you how important it is to reassure our players about what we are going to do," he said. Foster takes over a team comprised primarily of freshmen and sophomores with one of Poland Tops USA MUNICH (UPI) -The United States, winless in its five games of the World Ice Hockey Championships, now faces relegation from the round robin tournament. The U.S. lost 5-3 to Poland in a battle to get out of the championship cellar Wednesday and now needs a win in the return game in Duesseldorf in a week's time to save itself from dropping back again into the B group. The only other chance the U.S. has is a rule change being considered by the Federation which would expand the championship from six to eight teams when they next take place in Katowice, Poland. But U.S. Coach Bob Johnson said he was not gambling on the group being expanded. "Our objective here is not to finish last," Johnson said. "Right now the loss to Poland has put us behind the eight ball. We had our chances to win and we missed them. We gave them chances and they scored.'' The loss to Poland in front of 5,000 fans in the Olympic Hall was due mostly to sloppy passing by the U.S. defense. Stan's Fighters Earn Victories Fighters from Stan's Boxing dub picked up a number of wins on recent amateur cards at Judge Memorial High School in Salt Lake City and at Burley, Ida. At the Judge Memorial, Philip^ Grace stopped Ray Brown of the Leo's Club on a TKO in the second round, Blaine Farrer won a split decision over Valentino Gourley of Marshall White Center in Ogden, and Randy Brown on a split decision over Tim Hill of Marshall White Center. In the Burley fights, Grace won a split decision over Steve Donigan of Pocatello, Dave Smith won a split decision over Victory Algrio of Carlin Nev., and Brown won a split decision over Ted Hugas of Fort Hall, Ida. Richa'rd Roman was the only fighter from Stan's to lose either at Judge Memorial or Burley. Roman, a somewhat inexperienced fighter, lost a decision to the veteran Earl Shields after a great battle. Stan's Boxing Club will sponsor the Intermountain AAU Boxing Tourney May 9 and 10 at the Lincoln Junior High in Orem, according to Stan Chynoweth, manager of the club. Hunter Safety Course Planned The Springville - Mapleton Wildlife Federation is sponsoring a Hunter Safety Course that will begin at 7 p.m. Tuesday, April 29, at Springville Junior High School, 165 So. 700 East. Classes will last two and one half hours and will be held Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday evenings and Saturday mornings for a total of seven classes which will be completed in two weeks. Age limits will include only those who will be old enough to hunt during the coming season or 12 years by the end of 1975 and older, both boys and girls. Advance registration is necessary and can be done by phone (489-4793) prior to the starting date. Classes will be limited to 60 students. Instructors will be Garth Killpack and Dick Newton. It is reminded that this training is a necessity for those people desiring to hunt and who have not had a previous hunting license. the strongest benches in the ACC. Locke continually went to his bench throughout the season as the Tigers scored big wins over Maryland, North Carolina and North Carolina State. Clemson downed Duke in the ACC tournament, Locke's first win ever in the tournament, but lost in overtime to eventual tournament winner North Carolina. Clemson then went on to the National Invitational Tournament in New York City where it lost its first round game. But along with success came repeated news reports about possible recruiting violations at the school—reports Locke vehemently denied. Locke said the NCAA was probing the school and that he was cooperating fully with the investigators. Clemson University officials said earlier this week they have not been informed of the results of the probe. Trade AH Denies 'Ripoff In Upcoming Bout MIAMI BEACH (UPI) Heavyweight champion Muhammad Ali, claiming not enough people have the opportunity of seeing him, will box a three-round exhibition with Rodney Bobick Tuesday night as part of the fight card at Miami Beach Auditorium. Mike Dundee, a spokesman for the auditorium and nephew of Angela Dundee, Ali's trainer, said Wednesday Ali agreed to box Bobick in the exhibition because "he feels many people don't get a chance to see him in his title fights." On the same topic of not enough people seeing his fights, Ali, while denying a published report he is "ripping off" the public, revealed he is taking a $2 million loss in defending his title against Ron L^le next month in order that "people can afford to see it on home television." Ali had been quoted Tuesday as saying boxing against the likes of Chuck Wepner and Ron Lyle"isabigripoff." "It feels like stealing some times," Ali was supposed to have said. "I just made a million and a half dollars beating a nobody like Chuck Wepner. I'll make another million dollars beating another nobody like Ron Lyle." "I didn't say none of that," Ali told UPI. "That's the most stupidest thing a man of my intelligence could say. I'm a religious man. You can't be a thief and a religious man, too." "If I say anything, I stand up to the world and I'll go to jail for it. I'm not a coward and I don't cop out on anything I say," continued the man who was once stripped of his title for.refusing induction into the armed services. Young Jeff Robbins Advances to Semis SALT LAKE CITY (UPI) Sixteen-year-old Jeff Robbins lived up to his national ranking as a top junior as he upset Brigham Young University's Mike Nissley, losing only one game Wednesday in their quarterfinal match of the 1975 Icebreaker Tennis Tournament. Robbins demolished the fourth-seeded Nissley 6-1 in the opening set and shutout the No.l singles player from BYU 60 in the second to advance into today's semifinals. Robbins' older brother, BYU senior Jim Robbins, also came away with a quarterfinal round upset, knocking off sixth-seeded Marc Bemer 6-2,6-4, in a match between Cougar teammates. The first outdoor meet of the season saw its No. 1 seed — Canyon Racquet Club teaching professional Jim Osborne— sweep past Utah's Drew Sweet 62,6-4, to advance into the favorite spot in today's semis at the Cottonwood Country Club. In other singles matches Wednesday, Bruce Kleege edged Dave Sherbeck 3-6,6-1,64; Stefan Tomovic shutout Don Droubay, frfl, frO; Alex Hernandez defeated Kim Farran, 62, 6-3; Kent Crawford stopped Tom Mullins, Pony League Signup Set PLEASANT GROVE Registration for Pony League Baseball in Pleasant Grove will take place today from 5 to 7 p.m. in the basement of the Pleasant Grove City Hall. The Pony program is for boys ages 13-14 who will not turn 15 prior to August 1st. Tryouts will be held April 19 at 10 a.m. at the Pony Baseball field. Boys are encouraged to register on the 10th and attend the tryouts on April 19. President of the Pony League this year is Arland Peterson. Coaches will be Howard Walker, Tigers; Grant Fowles, Giants; Calvin Mills and Blaine Gray, Yanks. League plans for this year call for a ten-team league with teams representing Undon, Pleasant Grove, American Fork and Lehi. 6-2, 6-2; and Mike Cooney knocked off Marty Manning, 61,6-0. In doubles, the top two seeded teams of Kleege-Berner and Osborne-Mullins had easy times in moving into today's quarterfinals. The BYU tandem of Kleege- Bemer broke Hy Saunders- Harold Turley's service once in the first set to win 6-4, and then shutout their opponents 6-0 in the second. Osborne and Mullins, seeded second to Kleege-Berner, dropped Fred Wheeler and Marty Manning also in straight sets, 6-2,6-2. The five-day tournament ends Friday. PITTSBURGH (UPI) Quarterback Terry Hanratty, the "forgotten" man of the Pittsburgh Steelers, says he wants to be traded. Hanratty said he asked to be traded when he met with Steeler Vice President Dan Rooney after the Super Bowl. "It'll be tough to leave ... all my friends, the good relationships I've had over the years," said Hanratty, "but you've got to adjust to things in this dog - eat dog world." The former Notre Dame star said he told Rooney he wanted to play. "I've had a good relationship here for six years but they know my feelings," he said. "I'm leaving it up to them. I'm just waiting now." Hanratty threw only 26 passes last year when the Steelers juggled their quarterbacks around from week to week. The 27-year-old signal caller said he did know what he would do if the Steelers refuse to trade him. "I really haven't thought that far in advance," he said. Hanratty is legally tied to the Steelers for the next two years —the second year of his contract in 1975 and his option year in 1976. It's doubtful if the Steelers will trade Hanratty merely because he wants to be traded. Golf Results Provo High's golf team defeated Springville, 14-6, Tuesday at Timp with Clyde Barton shooting 37. Other low scorers for the Bulldogs were Maury Jackman 39, Jeff Wall 41 and Kyle Walrath 42. Springville's scores were Scott Phillips 42, Jeff Warren 43, Wes Ruff 44 and Jim Rayburn 46. Provo hosts Brighton next Monday and Orem on Tuesday. On Wednesday the Bulldogs travel to meet Kearns and on Friday they host Murray. Vikings Win PLEASANT GROVE - The Pleasant Grove Vikings opened their Region Six baseball season Tuesday with a 6-0 victory over defending champion Uintah. Verlyn Ashton pitched a one-hitter and had two hits himself in pacing the Vikings. Randy Story was three for four and Kelly Duke two for three against Ute pitchers Bill Loos and Dan Gross.

(UPI) - The Professional Golf Association and its Tournament Players Division have announced a thawing in their six-year-old cold war with joint sponsorship of an expanded World Series of Golf. The joint sponsorship will go into effect next year when the World Series field will be expanded from four golfers to at least 16 and from 36 to 72 holes. TPD Commissioner Deane Beman also announced that starting in 1976, the Tournament Players Championship will be switched to either late February or early March, placing it ahead of the Masters as the first "major" tournament of the year. "We'll definitely hold it before March 15, making it the showcase for the first quarter of our tour." said Beman. "It hasn't been decided yet whether we'll hold it in California or Florida next year. Those details have yet to be worked out." The way Beman sees it, that tournament, the PGA Championship in August and the World Series in September will give the PGA-TPD three "major" tournaments. In addition, there will be two or three "designated" tournaments. "Under this format, we don't expect ever to have more than two or three designated tournaments," said Beman. "We don't want to get involved in overkill and this seems our best solution." PGA President Henry Poe said details have yet to be worked out on the sites for the Tournament Players Championship and for qualifications for the new World Series of Golf. But he said the revised programs will be put into effect "as soon as practical" and added, "this move is the greatest step that could be taken in eliminating factional elements of the past and making the club and touring professionals once again a most cohesive association.'' Beman said the agreement came after eight months of negotiating between PGA Executive Director Mark Cox and him. "It shows that we have been working together despite the differences that forced us apart some years ago," said Beman. "The PGA tour has long suffered without a significant beginning and a season-ending championship," said Beman. "We believe we have found the solution. Together with the new World Series of Golf, we will frame the golf year completely.'' The frogfish has a natural lure attached to its head.
