But now Frazier has other things on his mind, including a possible rematch with George Foreman for the world heavy- weight boxing championship he lost to Foreman last year. Foreman is tentatively scheduled to defend his title against Ken Norton in Venezuela but Frazier told a news conference Monday the Quarry is upset, being boycotted? NEW YORK (AP) Jerry Quarry said Monday he was the target of a conspiracy after learning that a proposed fight between himself and former heavy weight champion Muhammad Ali had been cancelled. Madison Square Garden had called a news conference for today to announce the fight, scheduled for May 6. But Monday, the Garden announced- that the conference had been cancelled, because there was no fight to announce. Quarry, who had flown in from Los Angeles for the conference, was angry at the cancellation, as was his manager, Gil Clancy. "I'm being boycotted by the black Quarry charged. He said he had reached an agreement to fight George Foreman, the heavyweight champion, but that was cancelled, and that the Garden had arranged a bout.. with Ken Norton, but that also fell through. Foreman, Norton and Ali all are black. Quarry is white. Garden matchmaker Teddy Brenner said the contracts for the Ali-Quarry bout had been drawn up by Bob Arum, Ali's lawyer. Quarry was guaranteed against 22% per cent of the proceeds and Ali 40 per cent against Brenner said that would have earned Ali about million. Arum said the fight was cancelled because Ali wanted to rest until September, when he hoped to get a shot at the title. He strongly denied any conspiracy. "That's the most ridiculous thing I've said Arum. "Ali just wants a vacation." Quarry, however, was not convinced. "All the opponents in my class won't fight Quar- ry charged. "Where do I go to fight a man? They're leaving me out in the cold.

South fight probably won't be held. During a busy round of ap- pearances here, Frazier said he could be first in line to meet Foreman if the match with Norton falls through. "You know the other gentle- man Ali or Clay or whatever he calls himself isn't talking about fighting Foreman." Frazier came here to promote an amateur boxing program involving fighters from Alberta and North Dakota. He said he would prepare differently if he fights Foreman again. "I don't say I was careless when I fought George he said. "I just say I got hit. He punches like a mule kicks." Frazier says he is anxious to fight either Foreman or Ali "I ain't got anybody but those two guys in. my mind right now" said he could beat either one. "Against Foreman, I would wait. I would get around him and I wouldn't try to punch while he was punchin'. "I think I beat Clay. I think the officials helped him win. The referee kept letting him hold my head and kept telling me I couldn't punch when he was holding, even if I bad one hand free." Frazier, one of only two men to defeat Ali as a professional, refuses to call his rival anything but his given name Cassius Clay. "He can call himself wants, but so can anything he wan I" said Frazier. "We don't get along. He keeps trying to make everybody feel that he's a better man. If that happened to you, you wouldn't like the guy if you know he isn't a better man." Frazier said Monday he re- fuses to consider retiring. "Boxing has been good to me, but I've been good for boxing. "I don't think the writers and broadcasters are right when they say boxing will go down after Clay and I retire. "They said the same thing when Joe Louis quit and when Rocky Marciano quit, but young guys came up. Clay and I were young guys once." When he's ready to quit, Frazier said, it will be bis decision and his alone "unless my family and my manager tell me they think it's time to kick boxing out of my life." "I think I can stand it, when I have to quit I'm financially safe. I can sit and twiddle my thumbs all the rest of my life if I want to. "But as long as I think I can fight and as long as people know my name and I can help some poorer souls, Til be around."

Colts win Warner tourney The Lethbridge Colts chalked up four consecutive victories and walked away with the first annual Warner County Midget Hockey Tournament title over the weekend. The locals were hard pressed in only two of their four games as they slipped past Fort Macleod 2-1, edged Foremost 4-3, whipped Vauxhall 13-2 and thumped the Lethbridge Northstars 12-1 in the championship final. The A-B final was a lop sided affair to say the least as the Colts held period leads of 3-1 and 8-1. Rocky McGee, Don Higa and Cliff Miyashiro led the Colts' attack over the Northstars with a pair of goals each while Doug Roberts replied for the Stars. At the conclusion of the two day event, John Layng of the Colts was selected as an all star defenceman while teammate Keith Miyashiro was chosen as an all-star forward. Kim Tillsley of Fort Macleod picked up the most valuable player honors while the top netminder to the tourney was Lome Hougen of Foremost. ELRICH JIRE SPORT SCORES NATIONAL Boston Montreal Rangers.

A spokesman for Marvin Miller, executive director of the Major League Baseball Players Association, said about 45 players had submitted their names for arbitration. The deadline for seeking arbitration was midnight Monday night. Under the new agreement between the players association and the club owners, a player who cannot read) a contract agreement may submit the dispute to arbitration. The player and the club each names a final figure, and the arbitrator picks one or the other no middle ground. The arbitration process is a voluntary one, however. Players may instead choose to continue negotiating on their own. Arbitration will be conducted through Feb. 22. Among the more well- known players to have asked for arbitration are pitcher Dave McNally, outfielder Paul Blair and second baseman Bobby Grich of Baltimore Orioles; pitcher Paul Splittorff and infielders Fred Patek and Cookie Rojas of Kansas City Royals, and pitchers Tommy John of Los Angeles Dodgers and Ken Brett of Pittsburgh Pirates. Harry Platt, a Detroit lawyer and labor arbitrator, met with Woodson, Twins owner Cai Griffith and their lawyers for more than four hours on the salary deadlock and ailed it "a historic occasion." Platt said a final contract for Woodson was filed at the hearing. "All 1 have to do is fill in the salary I deem he said. Woodson said he and the Twins were "about but added there was "a huge difference" between his demand and what the club had first offered. The 28-year- old righthander earned a reported last season.
