"It doesn't mean a thing," said college football's No. 1 citizen. "If somebody fails in pro football, there's usually a reason."

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-engine plane "swooping toward me. "The plane skimmed the water near the pier," he said, "and its wing tangled with my line and the 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 $8 compensation. Abbott added, "He told me he was having a bit of fun."

"Excellent quarterbacks, but not what the pros wanted. They want a drop-back style and that's me." The only Heisman Trophy winner ever to play in the Canadian Football League was halfback Billy Vessels from Oklahoma, who was named Canada's outstanding football 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 says he 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."

Gardens want bout Ali says he's ready to fight Joe Frazier NEW YORK (AP) - Muhammad Ali stood ready Friday for a showdown fight with heavyweight champion Joe Frazier whose stock was boosted by Ali's showing against Oscar Bonavena. 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, - 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' we land the Ali-Frazier fight (Houston's Astrodome also is bidding for the bout), we would like to have it 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 Ali'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 $615,401. In the past one criticism of holding the fight here was it would cut out the lucrative New York closed-circuit television market. However, Markson said theatre seats for a TV view of the Ali-Bonavena fight were sold out in the New York metropolitan area. About 50,000 seats were available. Celtics making charge By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Boston Celtics are running faster than anyone thought they would, but they still can't catch New York Knicks. 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 run themselves right into second place. Using a lightning-fast break led by perpetually-moving John H a v 1 i c e k, the Celtics have reeled1 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, gunning Portland Trail Blazers 139-121. In other games, Milwaukee Bucks p u m m e 1 e d Atlanta Hawks 125-104, Seattle Super Sonics came back to beat Philadelphia 76ers 107-104, Chicago Bulls held 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 59-44 halftime lead, and when the Braves closed to within six in the final quarter, Havjicek turned on the steam again. He finished with 34 points. Willis Reecf did the damage for the Knicks, leading them on a 14-2 run at the end of the first quarter and then to 13 straight points at the end of the second for a 66-48 halftime lead that never was threatened. Reed finished with 37 points. Jon McCIocklin scored 10 of his 17 points at the start of the third period, lifting Milwaukee from a 58-53 intermission lead to a 75-62 spread, and Atlanta never caught up. Lew Alcindor had 24 points for the Bucks, who won for the 21st time in 24 games. Lou Hudson had 30 and Pete Maraivich 29 for the Hawks. London setting for meetings LONDON (AP) - Vital meetings to thrash out the future of the Winter Olympics, and the Olympic Games in general, will be held in London next month. A spokesman for the International Olympic Committee said1 Tuesday: "The meetings are essential. We want to work out problems involved. We want to tear all viewpoints." _ I -By Pat Sullivan I SULLY SAYS g 'JWO things, or possibly it would be better to say feelings, struck me Sunday afternoon at the Lethbridge Sugar Kings' game with Red Deer Rustlers. 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 1 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 have 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. This is one job DeHeer, and for that matter, any 17-year, 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. This is a sad situation. The local referees' association is down to, I believe, four in number 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 the 10-minute mark of the second period when Dave George of the Sugar Kings was felled by a butt end after the play had started in the 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 box 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 performance. 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 crying shame would be an understatement. ? * ? A story was carried Tuesday by this 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 thing 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 the week. He had just come from the major league baseball meetings in Los Angeles and, among many things he told your correspondent, the main one was the Philadelphia Phillies will have a more elaborate scoreboard than the Astrodome in Houston. Ferenz, for those who didn't know, is the travelling secretary for the Phillies. He is also a part time goodwill ambassador for the club. Phillies, who have been floundering in the depths of mediocrity for the past few seasons, just could be heard from this season. That is if Ferenz has his way. Ferenz, who two years ago was the public address announcer for the Phillies, got his start behind the microphone at the Lethbridge Miners games a number of years ago. He was the voice of the Miners before he could legally enjoy the suds with the boys after the games. Last chance for Palmer FREEPORT, The Bahamas (AP) - Arnold Palmer, who is doing almost everything except winning, makes his last stab of the year at winning an individual title in the $130,000 Bahama Islands open golf tournament. The inaugural event is being sponsored by the. government to help promote the tourist trade on this resort island. It is the last tournament on the pro schedule for the season. "I would like to win a tournament," Palmer said last week when he survived a shaky start and finished in a tie for sixth in the Coral Springs Open last week. He filed a late entry for this tournament after shooting a final round 66. "Despite some poor putting, winning is the only thing that concerns me." said the aging champion whose only victory this year was a shared triumph with Jack Nicklaus in the National Four Ball Championship. He has three second-place finishes and has been in the top 10 about 60 per cent of the time. Palmer ranks in the top five on the money winning list with more thaii $125,000. In fact, a first place finish in this one with its $26,000 prize conceivably could make him the No. 1 money winner, , UNHAPPY FLANKER SUES TEAM AND LEAGUE - All-pro receiver Lance Alworth filed a $5.6 million suit againt his team, the San Diego Chargers and the National Football League Tuesday but says he wants to stay in pro football. He showed up for practice Tuesday as coach Charlie Waller prepared the Chargers for Sunday's game with Denver.
