Morton, who has made his share of sacrifices to the Dallas cause, will be up against Johnny Unitas, the Baltimore quarterback with the golden arm and a string of passing records to his credit. But Morton is neither awed by the spectre of Unites nor perplexed by his own predicament after a long season marked by trial and tribulation. "I've always respected and admired Johnny Unitas," he said Monday as the Cowboys began their final-week preparations for the Super Bowl, symbol of pro football supremacy in the National Football League. "In my book, he's the greatest quarterback who ever lived. But you've got to be yourself." Morton, beset by injuries, including a painful bruise on his right elbow, completed only 11 of 40 passes in the Cowboys' playoff victories over Detroit Lions and San Francisco M9ers that completed their stretch drive and nailed the National Footb&U Conference title. And the Dallas signal - caller has not called signals, except for changes, or audibles, at the line of scrimmages, since last November. Coach Tom Landry has sent in all the plays, since a humiliating 38-0 loss to St. Louis -and the Cowboys have reeled off seven consecutive victories. "In no way has it affected me." Morton said, "and I wouldn't want to change it now, not the way we're going. "When 1 come off the field, we talk together on the sideline about what we want to run on the next series. I'm so indoctrinated with his system that we more or less think together anyway. I try to approach the same the same way as he does." "Craig is an excellent signal-caller," said Landry. "He can call them with anyone in the league. "But a change had to be made. We were playing poorly and we had to do something to shake things up. It was either change the quarterback or call the plays. "By calling the plays I felt I could take some of the pressure off him. He still has the option to audible anytime he chooses." For the past week, however, Morton has been inaudible. A throat Infection confined him to bed a week ago in Dallas and he is under doctor's orders to do a minimum of talking. "This is the first day I've talked all week," he said. . M o r t o n's erratic perform-*| ances in early-season games brought the wrath of Dallas fans upon his head. "It's been said often that ad versity brings success," he said. "Sure, I've been booed in Dallas -and just about everywhere else. But the fans pay their way and they can do what they want to do, it doesnt' really bother me any more." Labor Club wins Saints triumph In the two City Recreation Hockey League games played last evening the Labor Club edged Purity Bottling 6-4 in the first game while St. Basil's Kasting sets new record Three swimmers from the Lethbridge Lions Swim club travelled to Edmonton and took part in the Winter Group Long-Course provincial championships over the weekend.

Case won't be heard until April Ali gets green light By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Muhammad Ali heads for Miami Wednesday to start training for his March heavyweight championship showdown against Joe Frazier after being {iven a green light by the taited States Supreme Court. The court said Monday it would hear arguments, probably in April, on All's claim that he was a conscientious objector when he refused induction into the army %Vt years ago. The decision cleared the way for the championship bout. In another decision, the Su- preme Court refused to review baseball's exemption from antitrust legislation, virtually killing the suit of Al Salerno and Bill Valentine, former American League umpires, who claimed Xwere fired in 1968 for to organize an umpire's union. Ali, commenting on his case, said: "I'm relieved. Now I can concentrate on the fight.

Ali refused induction into the army April 28, 1067, and was subsequently indicted and convicted one month later. On June 20, 1967, U.S. District Court Judge Joe Ingraham imposed a $10,000 fine and five-year prison sentence on the boxer. Ali was stripped of his title by most boxing commissions and also lost his licence. He was freed on $5,000 bond while his lawyers appealed the case and was not allowed to fight again until last October. , Since then, he has whipped Jerry Quarry and Oscar Bonav-ena to earn the showdown match with Frazier March 8. The two umpires had sued American League president Joe Cronin and commissioner Bowie Kuhn for triple damages, alleg ing they violated federal antitrust laws by conspiring in restraint of interstate commerce. The case was dismissed Dec, 10, 1960, by Judge Thomas F. Croake ot Manhattan U.S. District Court and upheld by the Circuit Court July 13, 1970. The courts cited a 1922 Supreme Court decision reaffirmed in 1053, that exempted baseball from anti-trust laws. The two umpires needed four voles by Supreme Court justices to hear the case but only Justice William 0.
