By EWART BOUSE MARGATE, N.J (AP) Joe Frazier, relaxed at his seaside hideaway here, ap- pears light years removed from the "Smokin1 Joe" who relentlessly pursues opponents in the ring. But when he starts talking, you realize that the world heavyweight championship and the comforts it brings ha- ven't mellowed him. "Cassius he says. "I have no more heart for Clay. My heart went out for him the first time. But he's not a true brother." Frazier refuses to call Clay by his Muslim name, Muham- mad Ali. Scott quits boxing ring SEATTLE (AP) The Wash- ington State Athletic Commis- sion suspended the licence of middleweight boxer F r a s e r j Scott indefinitely Tuesday. Scott said last month he had i participated in two fixed fights j out of the slate and was quitting boxing. The suspension came after Scott, of Kirkland, Wash., da-[ clined to give the commission any evidence to back up his al- legations. "I have Scott said, "but it's j evidence." Seott said he was never in- j volved in a "sham" fight in the j stale, hut had been approached many times. j As to his out-of-state bouts, Scott said he was aware of "a i conspiracy to get me the cham- pionship of the world." "He's a phoney, that's what he is. A plain, old phoney. The next time we meet, it won't last 15 rounds." The champ doesn't say what occurred since March, last year, when he successfully de- fended his crown against Ali. to make him conclude that Ali isn't "a brother." He's more explicit about their rematch. "Right now. I'm training for my May '.1, fight against Ron Slander in Omaha, Neb. But I'll put it this Clay's ready tomorrow, I'm ready today. "He says he's fighting more than I am. My belief is he's fighting because of his finan- cial situation, because I don't see how all that fighting he's doing is going to help him any when he faces me. "The records show that once I've fought a man, he's not the same. He has no more speed or spunk." At 225 pounds, Frazier plans to scale down to 210 for his fight with Stander. "I don't think I'll ever be able to scale back to the weight at which I fought Clay. I was about 205 then. I'm only 23 years old and still growing, not taller but spreading out a bit. "But I feel great. After my fight with Clay the doctor said I had high blood pressure. Now my pressure is so right, I think it's really feel great." An Ali-Frazicr rematch? "Right now' Clay is doing his thing, and Fr.izier's doing manager Yank Durham says. "I personally never look be- yond the fight immediately ahead Afterwards, well, we'll sec."

The Royals, who Chicago Cubs bombed Atlanta liravcs 12-1, San Diego Padres defeated Montreal Expos 6-1 I and Los Angeles Dodgers squeezed by Philadelphia Phil- lies 7-6. Houston's game at Pittsburgh was rained out. Bonds should have had three hits. In the first inning, with a runner on first, he slammed a pilch deep into the right field corner. But Rusty Staub raced to the fence and made a one- handed grab of the drive, rob- bing Bonds of a run-scoring, ex- tra-base hit. In the fourth, he unloaded shot to left-centre, then scored on G'arry Maddox's grounder. In the nintii he went the other way, booming a triple to right-centre, then coming home on Ken Hen- derson's sacrifice fly. The Mets grabbed a 2-0 lead in the second inning against Don Carrithers on run-scoring singles by .Icrry Grote and Gen- try, then Cleon .Tones got what proved to be the winning run with his second homer, a solo shot in the sixth. Bobby Tolan's t h r e e -r u n homer capped a five-run sev- enth inning that vaulted the Reds over the Cards. Tolan is leading the major leagues with game. "It's the first lime I've seen said Williams. "I kept hollering to the umpires about him going to his hair. I don't know what you have to do to get them to go out and look at it."

Told of manager Dick Wil- liam's prediction that Blue will win 20 games this year despite the late start, Vida said: "I'll be lucky if I win 10. I'll lake wjiat I can get." Kuhn announced that Blue's agreement provides sal- ary, a bonus for his 1971 performance and "for any possible liability under a contingent f o u r -y e a r college scholarship" which was part of Blue's original bonus arrange- ment when he signed in 19G7.

Calgary may still have WHA c ELRICH TIRE SPORT SCORES' W L F A Pis CALGARY (CP) The Her- ald says a Calgary financial group is studying the feasibility of resurrecting the city's fran- chise in the World Hockey Asso- ciation. The group is reported headed by Dave Scalherd who has refused comment. Other members of the align- ment, the newspaper says, are oilman Tom Brook, oilman-pub- lisher Max Bell and Fred Man- nix, head of a heavy-construc- tion conglomerate. Brook was president of Cal- gary Stampeders in 1948 when the Western Football Confer- ence team won the city's first Grey Cup. Calgary's franchise was can- celled Monday when the original group didn't post a per formance bond to meet a week- end deadline. Scotty Munro, co-owner of Calgary Centennials in the Western Canada Hockey League, and Bob Brownridge were the main backers of the original franchise. Brownridge withdrew several months ago because of illness and Munro dropped his plans lie-cause he wanted to stay in junior hockey.
