CAP) -- -twhiz kid Moses Malone ap- *;teareri on the verge today of ^becoming the first player ever to go directly from high school ^'inlo professional basketball --;if, indeed, he hadn't already 7-done it. "· A source close to the 19-year- ·Told Petersburg High School star ''said Tuesday night Malone al- .ready had signed with the Utah XStars of the American Baskets-ball Association, but Malone re- 1 -.'fused early today either to confirm or deny the report. .*'- It was learned, however, that ,'Malone, his mother and three ^.executives of the ABA team -.··'were booked on an Eastern Air i;: Lines flight leaving nearby ''.Richmond . f o r New .York this '", morning. And the ABA tentatively scheduled a 2 p.m. EDT. news conference in New York at the Americana Hotel, pre sumably to introduce Malone. Jim Bukata, the league's new public relations director, said " i n New York he would not announce the news conference formally until he knew Malone ;had been signed. Three executives of the Stars -- Jim Collier, president; Arnie ?errin, general manager; and Bucky Buckwalter, player personnel director -- reportedly left Washington about 8:30 p.m. EDT Tuesday en route here. Malone, who averaged 35.8 points and 25 rebounds per game in leading Petersburg to its second successive state championship this past season, was due to have begun classes today at the University of Maryland, which won the college recruiting war for his services.

"The latest news will come out tomorrow and it's going to me who makes the decision. You all will hear about it," Malone told newsmen. Asked whether the news would occur here, Malone said, 'No," then quickly amended Hie statement to "you'll have to find out." -Terms of the contract were lammered out Tuesday in ne- ^otiations between officials of Hie ABA team and Donald Dell, a Washington attorney retained to advise Malone, only the second player ever drafted directly from high school by a pro basketball team.

Not Content With Just Winning, 1 Noll Aims For Super Bowl Title PITTSBURGH (AP) - Chuck, 'oil seems assured of becom- ng the first Pittsburgh Steelcr o a a h ever to have three traight winning seasons, b u t is most consuming goal is the upcr Bowl title. He's brought the Slcelers so ar in his five seasons as coach lat last year's 104 record was icwed as a disappointment, ven though it was the second est in the club's history. Dethroned by Cincinnati as lie Central Division fitlists IB American Football Conference, the Steelers still merited i playoff berth as the best run- ir-up. Nonetheless, they were beat- in soundly, 33-14 by the Oak- and Raiders in their playof! ipcner. It was Pittsburgh's w o r s t In-ashing of the season and a ar cry from the year before vhcn Pittsburgh edged Oaklanc on a Terry Bradshaw to Frenchy Fuqua to Franco Harris miracle reception. Braclshaw, who threw three interceptions in I lie Oakland defeat, faces a stiff preseason challenge from Joe Gilliam for the starting quarterback job. With Bradshaw nursing a sore arm, Gilliam h a s f i r e d seven touchdown passes in helping Pittsburgh to a 4-0 exhibition record. If he lares well against the Washington Redskins Friday night, Gilliam could clinch a start in the Steel- regular season opener. B e y o n d Gilliam, there shouldn't be many new faces in the Steelers starting offensive lineup, though Steve Davis could oust John Fuqua as Franco Harris' running mate. On defense, cornerback J.T. Thomas, the No. 1 draft pick two years ago, takes over from traded John Rowser as a start- er in a secondary that has led past two years. At least a half dozen rookies iigure to make the club as re-- .servcs, and Noll drafted with an eye toward depth at wide receiver, offensive line and linebacker. Flanker Lynn Swarm of Southern California, the No. 1 draft, has been hampered by minor injuries thus far in Pittsburgh's pre-season. However, No. 4 pick John Stallworth of Alabama AM has been tha leading pass catcher. No. 3 pick Jack Lambert, a rangy linebacker, also seems assured a spot on the roster, while newcomers Mike Webster and Rick Druschel bolster th« offensive line. Among other impressive free agents have been t i g h t end Rantly Grossman of Tmple and defensive back Donie Shell of South Carolina State. ORDER FORM FAYETTEVILLE BULLDOG TICKETS Nome. Street'.
