Supreme Court Stands Squarely In The Way All Has More Opponents Than Just Frazier ATLANTA (AP) The U.S. Supreme Court and Bob Foster stood today as the two major blocks to a heavyweight title fight between Muhammad All and champion Joe Frazier, a fight that easily could be the richest in history and one of the best. Figures like million were being bantered about Tuesday, the day after All returned to the ring after a 3V4-year exile and slopped Jerry Quarry in three by splitting his left eye- brow. Madison Square Garden in New York wants the Ali-Frazier fight for February and Houston interests also are trying for it. But first there is the appeal of All's conviction in 1967 of refus- ing induction into the Army, Should the Supreme Court refuse to hear the appeal, Ali faces a prison sentence of five years. There is no indication ol when this litigation will end. Then there's the lanky figure of light heavyweight champion Bob Foster, who will take his thunderous left hook into the ring in a bid for Frazier's crown in Detroit Nov. 18. MAY MEET BONAVENA There is also an outside chance that Ali might fight rug- ged Oscar Bonavena in Decem- ber for Miami promoter Chris Dundee. "I could box you and we'd sell Ali said to a reporter Tuesday as a means of under scoring his gate appeal which in the current social and political climate of the U.S. seems greater than ever. It is certain that a Frazier-Ali fight would be one of the big- gest draws in boxing history. "There is no limit to what an Ali-Frazier title fight would said Michael Maltiz, president of Sports Action, Inc., which promoted the Ali-Quarry fight. "It could make mil- lion-certainly more than any fight in history. We would run out of satellites." Monday night's fight was shown on closed-circuit televi- sion to 206 locations, with seats, in the United States and Canada. It also was beamed to South America, Eu- rope, Australia, Asia and the Soviet Union. RECEIPTS NOT KNOWN No receipts are available but Ali's percentage was expected to be about million and Quar- ry's about The closed-circuit television showing in Madison Square Gar- den drew a crowd of and at top, we'd proba- bly top million live for Ali- said Garden match- maker Teddy Brenner. Ali, 23, now has a licence to fight in New York, a licence :hat was granted after Atlanta cracked the ban against Ali by giving him a licence. Ali was impressed by the warm reception lie got from the packed throng of in the old Atlanta Municipal Auditorium. 'NICE FEELING' "It's nice feeling when they're !cr said the man who rose to the heavyweight title as Cas- sius Clay and who knows the 'ecling of people being against lim. As for his return to the fight ?ame, Ali said: "This is my oc- cupation.

I'll be home and the phone will be ringing, and he'll be home the phone will be ringing. People want it." There's already a line on such a fight. It was quoted as even by oddsmaker Jimmy (The Greek) Snyder after he watched Ali's impressive comeback. As for Quarry, who is only 25, he called the cut, which re- quired 11 stitches, "a set of cir- cumstances. It was luck. 1 wasn't beat by a better fighter. If I could have gone another round, I could have got back in the fight and won." The blond said he had no immediate plfjis about his future. Canucks Win First Game Between Expansion Clnbs By IAN MacLAINE Canadian Press Staff Writer Bud Poile played second fid- dle to Punch Imlach at last June's .National Hockey League draft in Montreal. By a stroke of luck, the Van- couver Canuck general mana- ger found himself taking second choice to I m 1 a c h 's Buffalo Sabres in three phases of the NHL's system of player selec- amateur draft, league draft and inter-league draft. As the league's two new mem- bers, both clubs were starting from scratch and the players made available by the other 12 clubs were a motley group at best with few exceptions. Tuesday night marked the first meeting of the season be- tween the expansionists in the only league game scheduled. This time it was turnabout as Poile's Canucks turned in an impressive 7-2 win over the Sabres. Vancouver's victory firmly entrenched the West Coast team in fourth place in the NHL's East Division with eight points, three behind the division leadr Bruins, New York Rangers and Montreal Cana- diens. TIED WITH DETROIT Buffalo remained in a fifth- place tie with Detroit Bed Wings, each with five points and three points ahead of cellar- dwelling Toronto Maple Leafs. The Leafs entertain Montreal tonight while Detroit is at New York, Chicago Black Hawks are in Minneapolis against Minne- sota North Stars, Los Angeles Kings are at Pittsburgh Pen- guins and St. Louis Blues are host to California Golden Seals. The Canucks never left the game in doubt for fans as they opened a 3-0 lead in the first period and took a 5-1 lead into the third. Dale Tallon, No. 2 in the ama- 'eur draft behind Buffalo's Gil Perreault, held the edge in their matchup although both youngs- ters, fresh out of junior hockey ranks, electrified the crowd with several brilliant moves. Tallon contributed a goal and assist to the Canuck win, the joal his first in NHL play, while Perreault was held off the score sheet. Tallon's goal was of the variety that made him one of he most feared shooters in jun- or hockey, a 40-foot blast that eluded Boger Crazier in the Buf- :alo goal. PERRAULT THREATENS Perrault kept Vancouver's Charlie Hodge busy as he broke n twice on the Canuck goalie, only to be thwarted by the cagey veteran. Hodge also had :o be spectacular on Perreault n the first period on a close-in drive. While the Canadiens are in Toronto tonight, general mana- jer Sam Pollock will be looking 'or an opener to greet centre Ralph Backstrom with Thurs- day morning. The elusive Backstrom re- turned to his Kirkland Lake, Ont, home before the season started to get in a little hunting and consider his future in iiockey. The 33-year-old veteran of 11 seasons in a Canadien uniform said in a telephone interview Tuesday night he would be meeting with Pollock Thursday. He, would not confirm reports emanating from Montreal he was Vancouver-bound and tick- eted for a return to. the NHL with the Canucks. Another former Canadien was in the news Tuesday night. Claude Provost, who retired from pro ranks earlier this year rather than become an assistant coach with Montreal's Ameri- can League farmclub, Montreal Voyageurs, was named coach of Rosemount Nationals of the Quebec Junior Hockey League. Provost replaced Leo Bossy, fired by the Nationals Monday. VANCOUVER 7, BUFFALO I First Vancouver, Lunde 1 (Qulnn) 2. Vancouver, Tallon 1 (Young, Hall) 3.
