And a close-to-capacity crowd in the Gar- den for the closed circuit tele- cast of the fight from Atlanta gave the boxing exile a royal reception for his first regular fight in 3% years. From the moment he was shown on the huge, four-sided screen in the Garden, the arena rocked with cheers for the flamboyant fighter. At least half of the crowd paid and .appeared to be black. Quarry came on the picture first and the Garden crowd booed lustily. Tlwre were only, a few cheers for the blonde Californian. Then-- came Ali, also known as Cassius Clay. The crowd roared loud and long, drowning out the an- nouncer. It was tiie same way throughout the fight. When referee Tony Perez tried to give the fighters the p r e -f i g h t instructions, the camera panned on Ali. When he stared at Quarry and then started talking to him, most of the fans laughed and then roared. As Ali came out, dancing and stabbing with his snap- ping left-hand jabs, just as he used to do in the old Garden, the fans roared again. "Same old said a fan. "He ain't never been away. That Quarry ain't got a chance." It seemed only a question of nor long Quany would last. There was a constant roar Frazier Ready NEW YORK (AP) Joe Frazier wants a crack at Mu- hammad Ali.

Centennials Meet Tigers Medicine Hat Tigers and Cal- gary- Centennials will take a break from the hectic Western Canada Hockey' League sched- ule Wednesday night and enter- tain the hockey fans of Taber and southern Alberta. An exhibition g a m c, tire meeting between the two clubs will get under way at the new Civic Centre at This is the fourth game in a 12-game exhibition series planned for the Taber Civic Centre. During the 12 games hockey supporters UtfMfcffc REGULAR AND KINGS wiU see all the teams in the WCHL in action. Centennials, a f t e r a slow start, are in second place in the western division of the league six points back of Ed- monton Oil Kings. Oil Kings and Centennials went nine games last spring to decide the western division champions. Oil Kings won the ninth game but lost in the league final to Flin Flon Bombers. Tigers are a new club in the league. They were granted a franchise when the league made its decision to expand. In six outings this year the Tigers have come up with only one win while Centennials Have reg- istered foui' wins and three ties in 10 games. Meanwhile Brandon Wheat Kings and The Centennials turn- ed the Calgary Corral into a hoxing arena during a Western Canada Hockey League contest Monday night. Referee Joe Cassidy of Cal- gary called 55 penalties before stopping the game at of the third period. Calgary was leading 7-1 but league officials said a decision on the game ill be made later. Sixteen penalties were called in the first two periods and [hen at of the third, a battle erupted between Cal- gary's Bob Nystrom and Dale Cook of Brandon. Players from both teams streamed out onto the ice and Cassidy handed out nine game misconducts, seven In Calgary. Twenty three seconds later, another brawl broke out and Cassidy ejected another 25 players and ended the game. None of the players was re- rorled injured in the fighting and none of the was involved. when Ali cut Quarry over the left eye and then hammered with a stunning left-right-left combinatiot. to the head in the closing seconds of the third round. When the fight was stopped the crowd seemed surprised. But only for a moment. When the fans realized the fight was over, they let loose with a thundering ovation for Ali. Then when the unbeaten, once-undisputed heavyweight king said he wanted to fight Frazier "to settle the title" the crowd's cheers almost lifted the roof off the new Garden. At Los Angeles, disbelief and even astonishment were the general reactions of fight fans here over the early stop- page of the fight. Followers of Quarry were well aware that he is often cut but has a history of quick mending by his cornermen. CRITICIZES DECISION Veteran promoter George Parnassus, who watched the fight on closed-circuit televi- sio-i along with others at the Forum in suburban Tn- glewood, said in disgust: "It was a disgrace." "In my 50 years in boxing, I never seen a referee in an important fight such as this take the sole responsibility of stopping a fight con- ferring with the ring doctor." Robert member of the California Athletic Com- mission, also at the Forum, said: "I've seen Quarry cut up twice as bad and nobody stopped the fight. I just couldn't believe it." The crowd, however, plainly favored Ali. The cheers on his introduction were much greater than that accorded California's Quarry. Ali does not appear to have lost any of his magic in To- ronto as Cassius Clay, he pounded out a 15-round de- cision over Canadian cham- pion George Chuvalo in March, 1966. More than paid to to see the closed-cir- cuit event Monday night and cheered lustily Ali's every move on the giant screen at Maple Leaf Gardens. The take at the Gardens was reported to be about But there were no cries of "fake" or "farce" when referee Perez stopped the bout. Most agreed that slow-mo- tion re-runs of the final round were proof chough that Ali's punches were indeed potent and Perez was wise to step in when he did. "It's too bad it didn't go three or four more said Earl Walls, former Cana- dian heavyweight boxing champion, "then you could tell if he (Ali) still had it. His timing was off a bit in the first round, but hs sure looked good. "It might be a different story, though, with Frazier." The closed circuit was shown in several Canadian cities including Montreal where showed up at seats ranging from to There were at the Hull Arena, most of them paying 55 a scat although there were about 300 standing-room only tickets going for Meetiug Set For Spanvood SPARWOOD (HNS) An im- portant meeting will be held Wednesday night at the Spar- wood Secondary School at seven o'clock in the hope of forming a minor hockey association.

Frazier Next tn Line In Comeback All Ends Quarry's Hopes In A Hurry By ED SCHUYLER Jr. ATLANTA (AP) Mulian mad AH is back and. ready 1 meet champion Joe Frazier in fight that should be an explosh climax to what has been severa years of confusion, frustrate and doubt in boxing's heavy weight division. "I'm ready to settle the title, Ali said Monday night after di posing of tough Jerry Quarry i three rounds in Ali's first fig] in years. "Quarry was much harder i fight than Joe Frazier will be, said the man who rose to th heavyweight championship a Cassius Clay and then wa stripped of his .title when con victed of refusing induction inl the U.S. Army. "We're ready to fight him as soon as we can get rid of Fbste and as soon as Clay can ge F r.a z i e r 's manage] Yank Durham, said in Eas Stroudsburg, Pa., where Frazie is training for a .title defenc against light heavyweight kin Bob Foster in Detroit, Nov. 18. Foster, who has a thunderou left hook, could upset an Al Frazier fight. Another bloc could be Ali's conviction whic drew a fine and a five year prison sentence. The con victim still is being appealed. FAVORED TO WIN Ali Was a heavy favorite t win the historic fight at Allan ta's old Municipal Auditorium jammed with people, but was the manner in which h won it which showed that indee he once again is a major fore in boxing. From the opening bell of th scheduled 15-rmmder until th :ight was stopped at the end o the third round with blood gush ing from Quarry's split left eye brow, Ali was in complete com mand. Using his 5K-inch reach ac pantage and showing he had no lost his punching speed, Ali pep sered Quarry with stinging lef iabs and jolted him with lef hooks .and rights. It was straight right in the third rounc :hat ripped open Quarry's eye- brow, a wound that required 1 stitches. Ali, now 28, last tough against Zora Folley March 22 1967, and won by a seventh round knockout. Ali's transformation from lee urer, actor and fast food im presario to a fighter that closely himself 3Vi years ago was truly amazing. Ah weighed 238 when he began training for the Quarry fight six weeks ago. Monday night he veighed 213V4, 15 pounds more than Quarry. 'IGI-IT PROVES LUCRATIVE Monday night's fight did more or AH than just restore his iride. He figures to get more han a million from his per centage while Quarry could em up with about Ali ha< been guaranteed against 42VJ per cent; Quarry against 22Vz per cent. There were no figures on the ive gate or the gate from dosed circuit television shown at 206 locations, with eats in the United States am Canada. Winning the was termed yy Ali "more than a win for a was a social vic- ory." This was a reference to us victory against the banish- ment imposed on him after his conviction. Ali saw plans for many, fights aU through ptil Atlanta granted him a licence. Since jeing licensed to fight in At- anta, Ali also has been'granted licence by New York state. CROWD BACKED ALI The crowd, dotted with such personalities as actor Sidney 'oilier, singer Dianna Ross, co- median Bill Cosby, baseball star [ank Aaron and fighter Jimmy Ellis, was solidly behind All. Bomb Scare At Clav's PHILADELPHIA (API Po- ce and firemen searched the ome of Muhammad Ali for a omb early today after his 21- ear-old wife reported a series threatening phone calls re- eived shortly after Ali defeated erry Quarry in a heavyweight out in Atlanta.

Firemen checked the roof of c house and police searched e interior but said they did ot find anything suspicious. Police said Ihc home tde- number is unlisted. Many civil rights leaders also were in the crowd and after the fight, Mrs.. Corrctla King told Ali: "You are not only the champion of boxing, you are the champion of justice and peace." All's comeback fight was 30th victory, 24th by knockout, in 30 fights since turning pro in 1960. Quarry, 25, was outgunned from the start but he didn't want to quit. His trainer, Teddy Bcntham. shouted to referee Tony Perez at the end of (he (anger and started after Perez third round that it had gone far enough. Perez then examined the -cut, without calling a doctor, and stopped the fight. Quarry, threw his hands up in His father, Jack Quarry, shouted: "If you go back in that ring you'll never fight again." Quarry's record now is 37 vic- tories, five losses and four draws. .A HARD RIGHT THAT HURT Myhamad Ali hits the third raund and All was declared the winner.
