[News Script: Plimpton] Part: 1 of 2


George Plimpton is editor of the PARIS REVIEW -- but
is a lot better known as the guy who played as an
amateur with the professional Detroit Lions football
team. He wrote a best seller afterward called THE
PAPER LION. Plimpton stops at Love Field tonight, on
his way to a speech at North Texas State University.
He recently was a witness at the California triak of
who shot Senator Robert
Sirhan Sirhan, Kennedy.
Plimpton was with when it happened and describs
what he saw.





As a practicing amateur among professionals Plimpton
has boxed Archie Moore, golfed with Sam Snead and
played tennis against Pancho Gonzalez. He wants to
try some bullfighting next -- but, frankly, hasn't

set the date.
