Fight fans may be arguing for years whether Joe Frazier really got angry at Muhammad All and tried to slug him. Or whether it was all an act put on to promote Monday night’s fight or a television show next Saturday. All produced some fodder for the skeptics when, 30 minutes after he was roiling around a television studio floor in the grasp of his opponent, he laughed heartily and said' “There's this fellow down in Waycross, Ga., who will be reading the paper tomorrow morning about what happened here and he will say, ‘Maybe I oughta go up and see that fight. I oughta get me a ticket.”' If it was a publicity stunt, it apparently got out of hand and for a few tense moments their 12-round fight was in jeopardy. Here is what happened-The American Broadcasting Co. <ABC) announced that there would be a showing Saturday of the original $20 million battle between the then two unbeatens for the world heavyweight championship. The two fighters were brought in Wednesday to tape their comments. The show, moderated by Howard Cosell, was to be shown Saturday on ABC’s Wide World of Sports. Things moved along smoothly enough through comment on the first nine rounds. There were a few in sults thrown back and forth and constant interruptions as each fighter insisted that it was he who was dominating the battle. Then came the 10th round. Ali and Frazier intensified their chatter. Cosell began to show impatience. He tried to Eagles entertain seven ‘B’ clubs The Magrath Eagles have organized an eight-team “B" boys’ basketball tournament which gets underway with four games today The two-day singleknockout event has been set up a little differently than most tourneys since the participating teams will not play two consecutive days. The first four games.wiU be held today while the remaining four tilts will go Saturday. Teams partaking in the hoop classic will include Cardston, Grassy Lake, Raymond, Warner, Picture Butte, Taber, Magrath Super Subs and the host Eagles. Super Subs faced Picture Butte at 4-30 in the tourney opener this afternoon while Cardston and Grassy Lake were to have met at six o’clock tonight. In other games scheduled for tonight, the Eagles take on Taber at 7:30 and Raymond faces Warner at nine. Meanwhile the Raymond Mustangs tuned up for the tourney by edging the Cardston Wildcats 33-32 in a “B” boys’ league game last night. Darryl Brooks led the Mustangs with 13 points while Rick Bracka hoo{«d 14 points for the Wildcats who trailed 24-17 at the half. In Southern Alberta High School "A” Boys’ Basketball League action last night, the Cardston Cougars whipped the Raymond Comets 50-36. Jim Toone notched 23 points for the winners while Jeff Hill managed 11 points in a losing cause. The Comets wilt get another chance to hit the win column Friday night when they host the Catholic Central Cougars while the Magrath Zeniths will face the Rams at the Lethbridge Collegiate institute. In the only game staged in the Southwest Conference Girls’ Basketball League last night, the Winston Churchill Griffins defeated the Fort Macleod Meteors 54-38. Brenda Lazaruck and Diane Turner swished 12 points apiece to lead the Griffins while Peggy Conners and Colleen Henry notched 10 each in a losing effort. keep the filters' attention on the screen rather than on each other. “Would you gentlemen please maintain discreet taciturnity,” Cosell admonished at one stage. ‘Don’t tell me to shut up, ” Ali barked. “I’m not your boy. You’re not my boss. You oughta be slappM. ’ As the 10th round ground on, the fighters got into a dispute over who absorbed the most punishment. “I went to the hospital for 10 minutes and you went to the hospital for a month," Ali said “Just for a rest,” replied Frazier. “In and out.” I'here was more banter >uid Ali repeated the charge about hospital tenure, raising Joe’s stay this time to two months. Frazier was on his feet in a flash, towering over Ali. All’s brother, Reachman, also a fighter, jumped to the stage and stood at Ali’s right elbow. “You wanna get in this, too?” Joe challenged Reachman. Before anybody could ring a bell, the two heavyweights came together in a vlce-llke grip. They wrestled momentarily and fell off the one-foot stage to a concrete floor with a heavy thud. Reachman and Frazier’s brother, Tom, began tugging at each other on another part of the studio floor. Men moved in to try to break it up.Studio scuffle for real?

Thurs. and FrI. 9:30 a.m. to 9:00 p.m Centre Village Mall, Telephone By GORDON GRANT General Sports Editor CHRISTCHURCH, N.Z. (CP) — With years of planning and the opening-day pageantry behind them, organizers of the 10th British Commonwealth Games turned their big new stadiunn over to athletes hunting for gold Christchurch today had its moment of gloir when Prince Philip open^ the Games and presided over a colorful spectacle in which 41 Commonwealth areas took part. So far, 38 countries are definite starters in the next eight days of competition. Sri Lanka had only a flag-bearer at the opening but no athletes entered. Hundreds of the 1,700 competitors and about 35,000 spectators jammed Queen Elizabeth II Park for three festive hours. The ceremonies lasted an hour longer than scheduled. They left chilled to the bone by a biting cold wind that drove temperatures into the 50s although it's summer in New Zealand. Despite the glommy weather, brought on by a rare cold wind from Antarctica, it was a superb opening for the 33,000-seat stadium. Track and field events start there Friday (5p.m. EST today). Cannon boomed and thousands of pigeons were released and attempted to sweep around the stadium. The wind forced some off course. Bands played, a contingent of Maoris sang and danced, and a 2,500-voice choir performed. The Canadian team was led by Jamie Paulson of Toronto, gold medallist in badminton four years ago at Edinburgh. Most of the team was present for the ceremonies. The New Zealand national band played Alouette as the Canadians marched past Prince Philip. The program described Alouette as “the song of the Mountses." The men combined black pants and red jackets, while the women wore white pleated skirts, red jackets, white hats and carried white handbags. Sylvia Potts of New Zealand won the honor of being the first woman in Games history to carry the baton, bringing the Queen’s message stressing the common links between competing countries. Canada is expected to be strong in swimming and diving, but the Australians have their whiz kids gunning for gold in the freestyle events In the other eight sports— track and field, shooting, cycling, boxing, badminton, wrestling, weightlifting and lawn bowling—there will be some medals including rold, but Canada isn't regarded as a power in any of them. Four years ago, 11 of Canada’s 18 gold medals came in swimming and diving. In all, the Canadian team won 66 medals. In addition to track and field, competition begins Friday in swimming and diving, badminton, lawn bowling, boxing, shooting and weightlifting. At the poolside, gold medals will be awarded In the women’s springboard, 100-metre freestyle and the men’s 400-metre freestyle relay. Bev Boys of Pickering, Ont., the defending champion, is favored to repeat but Terri York of Vancouver could provide an upset. Coach Don Webb of Toronto said he expects Miss Boys to win again.
