Argentina has the tougher task, facing Italy at Stuttgart in Group 4 of the 16-nation tournament Uruguay takes on Bulgaria at Hanover in Group 3. Merger hits a roadblock NEW YORK (AP) The possibility of merger between the National and American Basketball Associations ap- parently has run into a tem- porary roadblock and both leagues will still operate as separate entities next season. The NBA board of gover- nors was scheduled to vote to- day or Thursday on the trying to choose between Los Angeles lawyers Alan I. Rothenberg and Henry J Stemman Jr. for the job of commissioner to succeed the retiring J. Walter Kennedy. A vote of 14 members of the 18-man board is necessary for passage in both matters. But an ABA owner, prepar- ing for his league's meetings in Louisville, Ky., Thursday and gathering that Commissioner Mike Storen has said will ''give us our starting lineup for next he did not think the NBA can get 14 votes for merger Among those NBA teams re- portedly against the merger are Chicago, Detroit, Los Angeles, Milwaukee, New Orleans and Seattle. Kennedy has said he does not expect a merger to be negotiated at the week-long NBA meetings that began Monday. The topic, however, is on the agenda. Other matches pair the Netherlands against Sweden at Dortmund in Group 3, and Haiti against Poland at Munich in Group 4. Brazil's 0-0 draw against Scotland Tuesday kept the threetime champions still in the hunt for a fourth world crown, but did nothing to enhance their reputation. They kept the Scots out only with a display of crunching tackles. Rivellino, Brazil's long-range scoring ace, collected a first-half caution from Dutch referee Ane Van Gemert and was fortunate not to be sent off for a series of se- cond half fouls on Billy Bremner, the captain and midfield star of the Scots. Scotland manager Willie Or- mond criticized Brazil for its physical tactics. of their tackles were so crude as to be un- he said. "I am a great admirer of Rivellino. But after being booked, I reckon he had three other tackles on Scottish players that could have meant the red card ordering off." SCOTS BLAMED Brazil Manager Mario Zagallo countered, "The Scots were the ones who started playing it rough. We could not just stand there and watch them hit us." Yugoslavia slammed African champion Zaire 9-0, equalling the World Cup record score set by Hungary over South Korea in 1954 and taking the lead in Group 2. Yugoslavia and Scotland each has three points in the group, but the Slavs lead on goals difference. Brazil follows wjth two points from two drawn matches Zaire is last with none. Brazil must beat Zaire by at least 3-0 in its last first round match to be sure of a berth in the second round. West Germany, the 1954 champion, made sure of ad- vancing to the second round by defeating Australia 3-0 at Hamburg in Group 1. East Germany and Chile, meanwhile, fought to a 1-1 draw in Berlin, keeping hopes alive for both teams. Dusan Bajevic scored three of Yugoslavia's goals and became the leading scorer in the tournament. The game of the day was be- tween Brazil and nerve-tingling affair of physical contact, rough tackling, goalmouth thrills and feverish atmosphere. More than wildly cheer- ing Scots were among the sell- out crowd of Brazil dominated the mid- field at first and were technically superior; but in the second half, the Scots besieged the Brazilian goal. Bremner was like a man possessed, setting up one at- tack after another. West Germany eased up and irritated their supporters who were hungry for more goals against Australia. Wolfgang Overath, who has played in the last two World Cups, scored with a spec- tacular rising shot from out- side the penalty area in the 12th minute. Bernhard Cullmann headed the second in the 34th minute. Fastball The Labor Club Athletics came up with an impressive 22-hit attack and walked all over Pic-A-Pop in the second game of a scheduled doubleheader in Southern Alberta Major Men's Fastball League play Tuesday night. Ken Hutton led the Athletics at the plate walloping a home run, a double and two singles while Ed Carpenter went five for five stroking two doubles and three singles off losing pitcher Greg Binning and reliever Albert Sackman Len Duguay managed a double and single off winning chucker Doug Hartley Meanwhile in the opening game of the evening, the league leading Lethbridge Hotel Northstars and second place York Farms Generals battled to a 3-3 stalemate. Ron Zasadny went the full seven innings on the mound for the Northstars while Tom Yip performed the chores for the Generals. Tom Beresnak poked out a pair of singles for the Stars while Joe Myndio accomplished the same feat for the Generals. Eight minutes after half time came a goal by Gerd Martin Hoffman shot East Germany into the lead in the Germans think soccer, forget about politics DUSSELDORF, WEST GERMANY With World Cup soccer matches under way in stadiums across the country, the West Germans, favored to win the cham- pionship again, are in a fervor that pushes their bitter political squabbles to the sidelines. The fact that West Germany's first and only goal so far was shot by a halfback who describes himself as a supporter of the "Maoist" left wing radicals, is an ex- ample. "It was Breitner's right foot that counted, not his ieft said a fan here. West Germany beat Chile with it 1 to 0 With nostalgic indulgence in the old national pride that made Germans swell and neighbors shrink in the past. Stern, the popular illustrated weekly, commented on the national team: "They have more important things to do than ruling they have to conquer for Germany. The nation, or at least the larger part of the nation projects expec- tations, hopes and desires into this team: Victory must be ours." It has not gone unnoticed, either, that German soccer fans of late have been chorusing "Deutschland, Deutschland. Deutschland" when they want to fire up their men for a goal. Until recently the fans were more cautious about such an appeal to national sentiment and preferred to call out the names of favorite players like Uwe Seeler or Gerd Muller. A fresh test of national feelings is due Saturday in Hamburg when West Ger- many plays East Germany. Chancellor Helmut Schmidt, a native of Hamburg, expects to attend that match. Only a month in office, he has been too busy with affairs of state to pay attention to 1he Cup matches as yet, an aide said. But after almost five years at the top of the political ladder the men who worked for his predecessor, Willy Brandt, are en- joying the Cup matches to the fullest. "After U years of working almost without a break 1 am having a wonderful time." said Egon Bahr, the engineer of Brandt's eastern policy of easing relations with European Communist countries. The soccer mania is evident mainly in television watching. On a long weekend that began with a Catholic holiday last Thursday and ended with a national holi- day Sunday, traffic on the highways and in the cities was at a minimum, police reported. The newspapers and magazines put soccer first, too. Helmut Schon, trainer of the German team, was portrayed on one magazine cover with a black and white soccer ball as the top part of his head. He has dutifullty promised total victory to the West German public. But as before in the World Cup matches it is in the field of national feelings and prejudices where some of the harshest competition is taking place. Last week a Sindelfingen Hotel maid called the police and claimed she had been assaulted by a muscular Argentine soccer star. The district attorney waived charges, arguing "one must take account of the temperament of South Americans." But when a Chilean player fouled a German in last week's match there was a nationwide outcry against the "dirty" and "unfair" play of the Latin Americans. It was redoubled when a Uruguayan fouled a Dutchman on Saturday and was barred from further games. In the vocabulary of West Germans it is as important to be "tough" as to be "fair." and the managers of the national team have taken great pains to portray their players as having trained like assault troops to get into condition for battle "No women, no alcohol, no tobacco, but singing, ja said one of the men who runs the training camp. The German team even has its own field chaplain, the Rev. Wolfgang Dietrich of Hohenkirchen. The 39 year old Lutheran plays soccer, too, in his spare time But for the next three weeks he will tend his new panshoners at training quarters in Malente. Rev. Dietrich sees himself as "the man they can and is apparently accepted by all of the 22 team members as "the expert for God and soccer." except Paul Breitner. who is an atheist.

Fosters' reign appears shakey ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) After Bob Foster's long reign as light heavyweight boxing champion came within a point of being ended, speculation Tuesday centred on how long he can continue. Titlist since 1968, the lanky sheriff's sergeant from Albu- querque fought a disputed draw Monday night against Jorge Ahumada of Argentina. The champ didn't look sharp His timing was off and the heavy artillery that stopped 10 of his first 11 title challengers was missing. Ahumada, declaring, "I won the clamored for a rematch, but also in the wings were countryman Victor Galindez, ranked No. 1 by the World Boxing Association, and Briton John Conteh, top ranked by the World Boxing Council. All three officials were from Albuquerque where Foster is the hometown hero. Referee Jimmy Cleary scored the bout 145-142 for Ahumada under the 10-point must system Judge Tim Keleher had it 148-143 for Foster, and judge Stan Gallup 144-144 to bring the draw. One more point for Ahumada on Gallup's card, and there would have been a new champion. FOSTER KEEPS TITLE The draw left Foster with the title and a purse. In New York, meanwhile, manager Gil Clancy and pro- moter Bob Arum charged Tuesday that Ahumada had been the victim of a hometown .decision "I received a phone call from my people in Albuquer- que this Clancy said. "They said that one of the official scorecards was altered, causing the delay in announcing the decision. I've asked them to request an investigation with the state athletic commission.
