WASHINGTON (AP) Bob Cousy and two other former Bostin-area pro athletes met with members of the New Eng- land Mafia, a House committee was told Wednesday. Joseph (The Baron) Barboza, a self-described enforcer or strong-armer for the mob who I is in prison for conspiracy tu commit murder, identified the other athletes as Gene Conlcy and Bate Parilli. Cousy, a former star guard with Boston Celtics, now coaches the Kansas City Na- tional Basketball Association team. Conley also played with the Celtics and pitched for Bos- ton Red Sox, while Parilli quart- erbacked the Boston (now New England) Patriots and New York Jets. Appearing before the House Select Committee on Crime, Barboza said he was introduced to PariUi when the former player and Conley visited the Ebbtide Lounge in Boston. He said the pair spent 45 minutes in a back office with mobster Henry Tameleo during the 1964- 65 season. "When he came out from the back Tameleo said, "take the Los Angeles Lakers and four referring to an upcoming NBA contest. Records show Conley had re- tired by then. SAW COUSY AT FARM Under questioning, Barboza said he once saw Cousy and Conley at Arthur's Farm in Re- vere, Mass., a Boston suburb. Arthur's Farm, he said, was a mob-owned fruitstand where stolen goods also were peddled. When such allegations camp up before. Cousy denied his visits to the store were con- nected with anything illegal.

Questioned by Rep. Sam Steiger Barboza said Patriarca "had something to do with Scarborough Downs and had something to do with Berksliire but knew no other details. Tameleo, he said, told him The New England "about 50 per cent of the horses that ran in New England."

QUINELLA: (17.71. Challenge league's compensation chaise NFL managers spout off NEW YORK (AP) National Football League general man- agers responded sharply j Wednesday to an anti-trust, suit challenging the league's com- pensation clause, contending that teams would lie in danger of being destroyed without the measure. "Without the rule my thinking would he changed." said Don Klostcrman of Baltimore Colls. "If the New York .lets were my closest opposition, my idea would not only lie to build the Tolts. but attack and destroy the ,Icts-I'd try to lake Na- math away." "We have some eood young players now, we're preparing lo play in an stadium and our whole community is en- thused." said Bob LustiR of Buf- falo Bills. "If we lost some of our players the entire enthusi- asm would just hurst. That's un- fair to the community." "Without the rule there's no question a very few teams would have little difficulty galli-l ering great foolball teams lo- said Trx Srhramm of j Dallas Cowboys. "There's liltle doubt the Cowboys, being Super Bowl champs, would be in an extremely advantageous posi- tion." The discussion on the compen- sation clause during a break in the NFL meetings here came after the filing in Minneapolis Tuesday of an anti-trust suit at- tacking the compensation clause, or Ttozelle Rule. The suit was filed against the NFL club owners and commis- sioner Pete Rozellc on behalf of eight free agents and 23 player representatives of the NFL Players' Association and was said to "represent the desires of a heavy majority of NFL play- ers." BOYCOTTS FRKE AGENTS The suit charges that the compensation rule is an anti- competitive device and that the o w n e r s have "agreed and formed a practice among them- selves lo boycott and refuse to deal and negotiate with any player has become in theory free agent." Under the compensation rule, the commissioner must deter- mine the compensation to be given a team losing a player who plays out his option and signs with another club if the two clubs do not agree between themselves. Since I960 when Rozelle became commissioner, 53 players have played out their option and Rozelle has deter- mined tho compensation in just two cases. The NFL general managers denied they were refusing to deal with players who had played out. their options, and Klostcrman for one said he had talked to four agents represent- ing players who were free agents, issued a formal state- ment from his office in which he said: "We would have hoped that issues relative to employment could he resolved through tho process of collective bargaining as is the case in normal union- management relationships.
