It is just a matter of where and when. "We like to think here we have a better than 50-50 chance to make the match," said Harry Markson, - TiUAMl, Fla. (AP) - Stan-ford quarterback Jim Plunkett debunks the idea tliat a curse goes with tJic Hcisman Trophy, "It doesn't mean a thing," said college football's No. 1 citizen.

Abbott was angling for a prize in a fishing contest at the end of Skegness Pier Tuesday when he looked up to see a single^ngine plane "s\\x)oping toward me. "The plane skimmed the water near the pier," ho said, "and its wing tangled with my line and tlie lines of three other fishermen. "Their lines broke-but mine reeled out as the plane flew off. It finally broke after I had lost about 200 yards of it." The coast guard contacted the pilot who agreed to pay 18 compensation. Abbott added, "He told me he was having a bit of fun."

"Excellent quarterbacks, but not what the pros wanted. Tliey want a drop-back style and that's me." The only Heisman Trophy winner ever to play in the Canadian Football League was halfback BUly Vessels from Oklahoma, who was named Canada's outstanding fbotbaU player in 1953 when he starred for Edmonton Eskimos. Vessels went into the U.S. Army after playing with Edmonton for one season. MADE 191 PASSES Plunkett, the strapping 205-pound leader of the Rose Bowl-bound Indians, hit 191 to 358 passes during the regular season for 2,717 yards and 18 touchdowns. As for winning the Heisman metal, Plunkett sa>'s ho doesn't "know how much that'll be worth to me-but I'm going to find out." Plunkett says winning the Heisman has affected his daily routine. "I haven't had four hours sleep in a night since. I've been running all over the country and haven't thrown a football since our last game." Madison Square Garden director of boxing. Twelve hours earlier Ali, also known as Cassius Clay, had ended what had been a hard, but unspectacular fight by stopping Oscar Bonavena on three knockdowns in the 15th round in the Garden. It was a weary and bruised Ali when the end came. "If wo land the AU-Frazier fight (Houston's Astrodome also is bidding for the bout), we would like to have R sometime before the end of March," said Markson. Whenever the two unbeaten fighters meet, there Is a good chance Frazier will be the favorite. Frazier has always fought In All's shadow, but Monday night the shadow of Frazier hung over the proceedings; The questions in the minds of many in the sellout crowd were, "Could he have beaten Frazier tonight? Can he beat Frazier?" The crowd of 19,417 paid 9615,401. In the past one criticism of holding the fight here was it would cut out the lucrative New York closed-circuit (elevteion market. However. Markson said theatre seats for a TV view of the Ali-Bonavcna fight were sold out in the New York metropolitan area. About 50,000 seats were available.

The Celtics, picked by many to finish out of the playoffs-be-hind the Knicks and Philadelphia in the National Basketball Association's Atlantic Division, have rim themselves right into second place. Using a llghtnlng-fast break led by perpetually-moving John H a v 1 i c e k, the Celtics have reeled off nine straight victories, the last a 122-102 sprint past Buffalo Braves Tuesday night. However, the surge still has left Boston three games behind New York, which moves along pretty quickly, swishing past running, gunmng Portland Trail Blazers 139-121. In oilier games, Milwaukee Bucks p u m ra e 1 e d Atlanta Hawks 125-1(M, Seattle Super Sonlcs came back to beat Philadelphia 76ers 107-104, Chicago Bulls lield down San Francisco Warriors 98-87 and Los Angeles Lakers defeated Phoenix Suns 121-112. The Celtics, displaying the type of fast break that helped them to 11 NBA titles In 13 seasons before their decline, rushed to a 5944 halftlme lead, and when tlie Braves closed to within six in the final quarter, Havllcek turned on the steam again. He finished with 34 points. Willis Reed did the damage for the Knlck.s, leading them on a 14-2 nm at the end of the first quarter and then to 13 straight points at tlie end of the second for a 66-48 halftime lead that never was threatened. Reed finished with 37 points. Jon McGlocklin scored 10 of his 17 points at the start of Uie third period, Ufting Milwaukee from a 58-53 uitermission lead to a 75-62 spread, and Atlanta never caught up. Lew Alclndor had 24 points for tlie Bucks, who won for the 21st time in 24 games. Lou Hudson had 30 and Pete Maravlch 29 for the Hawks. --By Pat Sullivan London selling for nicclinjxs LONDON (AP) - Vital meet-higs to thrash out the fulm-e of the Winter Olympics, and Uie Olympic Games in general, will be held in London next month. A spokesman for the International Olympic Contmittee said Tuesday; "The meetings are essential. We want to work out problems involved. We want to hoar aU viewpoints." SULLY SAYS 1^0 things, or possibly it would be better to say feelings, struck me Sunday afternoon at the Leth-bridge Sugar Kings' game with Red Deer Ru,stlers. My first reaction upon arriving at the Arena was one of complete surprise. My second, upon leaving, was a feeling of disgust. The surprise came when I saw Jack DeHeer wearing a black and white striped jersey, with whistle in hand, performing the duties of a minor official. I'm not saying DeHeer didn't perform his duties well. As a linesman DeHeer is more than competent at calling offsides, icing and keeping up with the play. What I'm saying is no 17-year-old should ha%'e that responsibility thrust at him. Sunday afternoon DeHeer, who doesn't weigh any more than 130 pounds, was expected to break up three fights. It is his duty to separate, with the help of the other minor official, the combatants in any scuffles that break out. Tliis is one job DeHeer, and for that matter, any 17-ycar, cannot cope with. It simply can't be done. When two players square off at each other they are past the boiling point. To interfere, one needs, besides strength, at least a look of authority. To an 18 or 19-year-old player, a 17-year referee doesn't have this. Tliis is a sad situation. The local referees' association is down to, I believe, four in ntimber and if things continue the way they are going, the number could lessen before it increases. Too few a number are trying to do too big a job. ? ? ? The feeling of disgust hit me at tlie 10-minute mark of the second period wlien Dave George of the Sugar Kings was felled by a butl end after the play had started in tlie opposite direction. George was caught up ice in the Red Deer end and paid for his misfortune with a butt end in the face from the stick of a Rustler defenceman. He hit the ice like a ton of bricks and today has a black eye and a swollen cheek. It would be easy to use the name of the Rustler who was so cowardly as to use his stick in such a fashion, but that may be just what he wants. When he skated into the bo.\ after his foul deed he received a well - done pat on the back from his coach. That's a move that almost guarantees a repeat perfonnance. With the play going the opposite direction the game officials, who can in no way be faulted, did not see what happened. To say it was a ciying shame would be an imderstatement. A story was carried Tuesday by tliis newspaper which told of a player in the Western Canada Hockey League being suspended indefinitely for spearing an opposition player in the eye. So serious was the injury the player was flown to an eye specialist. This isn't the first time such a tiling has happened and it won't be the last. I wonder what it would take to bring about an end to these spearings and butt endings? A hockey stick can be classed a lethal weapon. What if the next time it happens it is fatal? Do you recall the Ted Green - Wayne Maki stick war? The Lethbridge Sugar Kings are not much better than the rest of the teams in the Alberta Junior Hockey League, They can slash and intimidate with the best of them, but spearing and butt ending are out. I'm at more hockey games than most people and I know. Ed Ferenz, another case of local boy making good, was in town the first part of tiie week. He had just come from tlie major league baseball meetings in Los Angeles and, among many things he told your correspondent, the main one was the Pliiladelphia Phillies will have a more elaborate scoreboard than the Astrodome in Houston. Ferenz, for tliose wlio didn't know, is the travelling secretaiy for the Phillies. He is also a part time gowiwill ambassador for the club. Phillies, who have been floundering in the depths of mediocrity for the past few seasons, just could be heard from tliis season. That is if Ferenz has his way. Ferenz, who two years ago was the public address annoimcer for the Phillies, got his start behind the microphone at the Lethbridge Miners games a number of years ago. He was the voice of tlie Miners before he could legally enjoy the sud with the boys after the games.
