There should be plenty of hoy around at Whoop-Up Downs, the tpendiog kind that is, as the Fall Race Meet opened today for a 12-day run that ends Thanksgiving Day, Oct. 9.______________________________________________ By RED SMITH New York Times Service NEW YORK Through the day and into the early evening, guvs asked other guys, "what do'you think about the and four times out of five the answer was the same: "I hope Floyd doesn't get hurt." Then it was p.m. There were fight fans. Halt a cen- tury ago, Trvin S. Cobb describ- ed tlie typical fight fan: "He is the soft fleshed, hard faced person who keeps his own pell safe from bruises, but whose eyes glisten and whose hackles lift at the prospect of seeing somebody, else whipped to a souffle. These fans paid 361 to see a strutting peacock named Muhammad Ali beat up a man about 30 pounds lighter, three inches shorter and seven long years older than he. When the fighters came into the ring it was tho little old gentleman, Floyd Patterson, who got the warmer welcome, and in the voice of the crowd there was wordless entreaty: "Good luck, Floyd. Take care of yourself." There was one there of whom Floyd had asked a question years ago "do you consider boxing a the other had said, "And at its best, an art form." Floyd had said, gra- tified, because to him boxing has been not only a sport but a way of life since boyhood. His wasn't sport, though, and it wasn't art. For five rounds Ali swaggered and showed off, not because he particularly wanted to humiliate Patterson (his time but because he can no more refrain from showing off than abstain from breathing. Then, starting as the sixth round opened, he punched Floyd's left eye shut and broke Ihe swelling open. When the doctor called it off after the seventh round, the only one in the house who hadn't had enough was Floyd Patterson. weights, Ortiz was just about as good as small men get. By the calendar he is a year younger than Patterson but he hasn't lived the existence that keeps Floyd fit beyond his years. As Dr. Edwin Campbell said, Carlos "became an old man very suddenly." He was wise to quit after six rounds. "I didn't want to make a fool of he explained.

Guy Simonis, president of the Manitoba Sports Federation, said Thursday organizations in British Columbia and New- foundland have agreed to par- ticipate in the lottery this year. He said in prizes will be offered each weekend, start- ing Oct. 5, based on results of games played in the World Hockey Association and the Na- tional Hockey League. Simonis said Sportsloto will bo based on 13 games each weekend. Contestants guessing 13 correct results will share the first prize, those with 12 right will split and those 11, The federation president said If there are no winners In one of the categories for a week- end, Uie prize money will not be awarded. However, 28 per cent of the total revenue is car- marked for prizes and if that amount has not been awarded i by [he end ot the season, a spe- cial draw will be held for the remaining prize money. "We hope as participation in- creases, we can also increase the prize said Simonis. "Our total population market with the three provinces will be about four million. It's ex- pected Alberta and Quebec wil join before the year end and that will bring our total partici paling market up to 11 mil lion." "Certainly we expect then that we could get a total prizi fund of about a week." Although B.C., Manitoba am Newfoundland are formally in volved, contest forms will be available in all provinces, 0 every dollar received, 58 cenL will be returned to the prov Don't Let This Happen To You!

"Of every dollar received, 27 cents goes to prizes, 15 cents to lational aclmini si ration and the province gets 58 cents. From hat they can make their profit. They'll end up with about 55 cents on each dollar going into sport iii the province." Last year in Manitoba, with prize money based on the of participation each week, amateur sports clubs selling the forms received Tha Manitoba Sports Federation made profit with about in pirze money. Simonis said lhat among the 32 countries operating a form of Spcristoto, the average profit per capita each year is "We thought if we can do just half as well, 50 cents per cap- ita, that will mean half a mil- lion dollars profit in Manitoba. if we can get all the provinces participating, profit could reach and that compares with the million Ihe government puts into sports each year. And that's not at all unrealistic." Only two provinces were added this year. "Because of the mechanics and also because Ihe only expertise we have is in Manitoba and we couldn't spread outselves over 10 prov- inces. So it's B.C. and New- foundland this season and then we start working in."

WILL NOT RETIRE He still hasn't had enough. When he returned to the Gar- den Thursday with an eye patch covering a wound that hnd required seven stichcs, he said again that he had no thought ot retiring. He spoke wistfully of a rematch with Ali, saying ha would be better next lime, if there were a next time. He might think otherwise if he had watched from outside 10 ropes. Never a big man: le looked shrunken along side ill's sleek 218 pounds. To jo sure, more than one David las slain his Goliath since that main event in Gath. Jaek Jempsey, for instance, weigh- ed 187, Jess Willard 245 at rfaumee Bay, but Ihe Dempsey 1919 was a jungle beast with kamikaze complex. There was never an ounce of assassin in "Floyd. Schooled In caution, Pat- terson relied on fast hands and a pretty fair Bunch at the ton of his game. The speed has left nim, and much of the power. Fighting back in the sixth and seventh rounds, he was like a small boy leased into fury, striking out blindly at his grown up tormentor. Except that this boy was 37 going on 50. He has been a professional for, 20 years. He has bad 64 lights, he won the heavyweight championship of the world twice, he lost it twice, he de- fended it successfully seven times and lie failed three times to regain it. Advice is worth what you pay for it and unso- 'iciled advice is an imperti- nence. But Dempsey was through at 32. It was quiet around the Gar- den today. Ken Buchanan came in to pick up his pay for re- luming Carios Ortiz to the world's of business and pol- itics. The little Scot, whose classic style has inspired rhap- sodies on occasion, didn't have lo be at his best against Ortiz, and wasn't. Going in as a substitute for Roterlo Duran. who baited Mm loose from the lightweight championship last .June, Bu- chanan had only three days of sparring. Still, his jab was enough lo keep Mm in charge during the six rounds Ortiz lasted.

The suit claims the club is violating anti-trust laws by re- quiring season-ticket holders to buy bonds that helped build Texas Stadium and by being re- quired lo buy pre-season game ickets in order to obtain sea- son seals for regular games. The suit was filed by Richard E. Driskill, describing himself a scason-licket holder, and asks thai Ihe suit be a class ac- tion for all persons in Us silu- ation. Also named in Ihe suit are Ihe city of Irving where the sla- dium Is located; the National Football League and NFL Com- missioner Pete Hozelle. The suit further contends that the defendants require each season-ticket holder to buy two season tickets in order to have Ihe privilege of purchasing a parking coupon for a parking lot near the stadium. Purchase of the seat option bonds, started at S250 each, al- lows the purchase of a season- ticket. Clint Murchison, owner of the Cowboys, at one time said he hoped to sell bonds, leaving seats for the general public. Driskill asks an injunction to stop Uic requirement of pur- I chasing pre-season tickets lo obtain regular tickets and lo change the parking lot rule.
