But Freelon said she showed him no drugs and he accepted her story that she was a medical researcher from Ghana studying the relationship of water pollution to cancer. "I didn't see any dope and she didn't have anything that looked like it carried Freelon said. "That never entered my mind because she seemed too interested in water poisoning." Freelon was. the first NFL player to acknowledge publicly having had any contact with Roxie Ann Rice, 19, who was arrested Jan. 4 in St. Louis on charges of defrauding an innkeeper and of fraudulently using a credit card, allegedly stolen from Washington Redskins' defensive back Ken Houston. The St. Louis Globe-Democrat reports that Houston gave the St. Louis police a statement in which he, too, acknowledged havng been in contact with Miss Rice CALCULATOR MISSING Houston said a woman claiming to be from Africa stayed with him and his wife for two days in Reston, Va., after which a pocket calculator and a charge card were missing. Houston said he met that woman through another who said her name was Pat, that she worked for a national magazine and that the publication wanted to do a story on him. Miss Rice, who has allegedly passed herself off as a writer, doctor and medical researcher, was to undergo a lie detector test today to evaluate her story, St. Louis police sai'd. A 39-page intra-departmental police memo in St. Louis quotes Miss Rice as saying she was recruited to transport briefcases containing what she believed to be narcotics to many NFL cities and that she became familiar with players and took orders and delivered drugs. Police officials and spokesmen for a number of NFL teams also have refused to comment on the report or iiave denied knowledge of any of the woman's alleged ac- tivities. TEAMS ARE MENTIONED Among the teams mentioned in the police memo are the Oilers, Redskins, St. Louis Cardinals. San Diego Chargers, Detroit Lions, Kansas City Chiefs and Cincin- nati Bengals. Freelon said that, during the 1974 season, he received a phone call from a woman who said her name was Pat and that she worked for a national magazine. "She wanted to know if I would pose for some pictures and if my wife would Freelon said. "I told her I was single and that I would pose. "A few days later, she called back and said a friend of hers was coming to Houston to look for a job and asked if I would pick her up at the airport and help her. She said her friend's name was Roxie Ann Rice." Freelon, who described her as being about 5-foot-10 and 150 pounds, said that, at that time, he was staying in a motel with the Oilers the night before the Nov. 24 game against the Dallas Cowboys. The police statement says Miss Rice told officers she posed as a Ghanian named Adiza Juzang in her dealings with players. The Kansas City Star, however, published a photograph Wednesday of a Dr. Juzang who was allegedly in Kansas City for a game between the Chiefs and the Minnesota Vikings. St. Louis police identified the-woman in the photograph as being Roxie Ann Rice. Chiefs gave Broncos a lesson in hustle Joe Louis honored By PAT SULLIVAN Herald Sports Editor Losing 8-4 can make any hockey game a long one, but the Lethbridge Broncos dis- covered they were only half finished when the final buzzer went at the Sportsplex Wednesday night. Most of the fans who watched the Broncos take an 8-4 lacing from the visiting Kamloops Chiefs were on their way home when the Broncos hit the ice again. Coach Earl Ingarfield, described the loss as a case of being out hustled, out muscled "simply out hungried" he said. Out hungried may not be in Webster's dictionary, but it certainly described Wednesday's proceedings. And as a result.the locals had a workout right on the heels of the set back. "I thought we might have shaken our early performance when we tied the game at 2-2 in the first said general manager Bill Burton. KAMLOOPS 8 LETHBRIDGT; 4 Firat Period: 1.

Ch'iefs, with the only resemblance to last year's club being their uniforms, scored within 31 seconds early in the opening period and then closed with a flurry scoring twice in just 17 seconds as the period headed for a close. Reg Kerr authored the Chiefs' triumph with three goals while singles went to Brad Gassoff, Neil Lyseng, Mai Zinger, Dave Hatheway and Craig Topolinsky. Ron Delorme, with a pair, and Jerry Bancks and Terry Bucyk, each with one, scored for the Broncos. Referee Murray Harding whistled down just 11 penalties in the game. Chiefs, who were outshot 36-35 by the Broncos, took five of' nine minors while each club got the nod on a major.

An indication of just how far off their game the Broncos were, was the final tally of giveaways. "Here's the whole story on this slat said Burton. What the stat sheet told was that the Broncos gave the puck away 31 times in the Chiefs' end and another 18 in their own end. Nothing more need be said. Kerr, with his first of the night, .and Gassoff gave the Chiefs a quick 2-0 lead as they scored at and respec- tively. However, Bancks and Delorme got the Broncos right back into the thick of things just over the midway mark of the period. But-it was Ken- again and Zinger who gave the Chiefs a lead they never relinquished as they scored 17 seconds apart with little over two minutes remaining in the opening stanza. Hatheway and Topolinsky, with his first of the year, made it 6-2 after two periods and it was all but over. Bucyk picked up his second I goal in as many starts for the Broncos but it wasn't enough as Lyseng and Kerr made it 8- 3 before Delorme scored from his knees at the mark. "We didn't even have one good period said Ingarfield as he shook his head. The coach gave a look of concern when he said that his club would have to play much better Friday when Saskatoon Blades pay a visit to the Sportsplex. LOOSE PUCKS Brian Sutler was a surprise starter for the Broncos Three stars Wednesday, first to third, were Kerr and Terry McDonald of the Chiefs and Delorme... Greg Woods, just returning from a broken shoulder, took a solid hit on his tender wing but appeared to be all right. The game was so dull as the second period neared an end that the organist played a medley of funeral music during the intermission to set the mood for the next 20 minutes Lyseng and Broncos' Darcy Regier engaged in one of the better fights of the year They stood toe'- to toe and delivered blows at each other Regier started quickly but Lyseng came close to evening things up before the linesmen broke the battle up Referee Harding still has a great deal to learn It is Just too bad he is learning at the expense of the WCHL.
