The North Carolina Democrat told a Senate judiciary sub-com- mittee he is preparing an amendment which would create a federal atliletic commissioner to regulate baseball, football, hockey and basketball, If Congress votes to relax anti-trust, laws to allow merger of the American and National basketball associations, Ervtn said, "it should have the right to determine such things as rates of return, ticket prices, territories, and it should super- vise the draft of new players." "If the owners of professional sports teams ask to be treated as a monopoly, they should ex- pect government regulation. "Otherwise, the federal gov- ernment, without any strings, is giving a handful of extremely rich men millions of dollars and giving them the right to drop chains around the neck of every professional basketball player and every potential player in this country." If the bill progresses to Se- nate debate, Ervin said, he will propose amendments to deal with the common draft and op- tion clause which permit a player to negotiate with only one team and bind him to it. ematically eliminated after Jos- ing 7-3 lo San Diego Padres.

First place in the Southern Alberta High School Football League is at stake with both clubs currently sharing the top spot with 2-0 records.

Whitelaw has a line up con- sisting of rookies with only a few veterans. Up to now the rookies have held more than their own in the six team league, but the question is, how long can they hold up?
