Page Four HOPE (ARK.) STAR Tuesday, August 27, 1974 Hope H*?m|j\t^od Bowi Kr,,lr Star Sports Lose close one to Phillies Reds 9 replacement is costly Have done it in four straight Bengals in habit of winning late By FRED ROTHENBERG AP Sports Writer The undefeated Cincinnati Bengals have always been ahead after the game was over this pre-season, but rarely while it's been going on. And their coach, Paul Brown, doesn't like what's happening. "We have nothing to be proud of," Brown said Monday night after a late-game revival carried the Bengals to a 27-14 victory over the Detroit Lions. "If we keep getting behind like this we're not going to escape with our lives." Elsewhere in the National NFL players resume talks as two-week truce ends By JOE MOOSHIL AP Sports Writer CHICAGO (AP) — The Na tional Football League player's and owners resume their stalemated strike talks today with a critical turning point — the end of the two week "cooling-off" ( period — barely 36 hours away. Chief federal mediator WMJ. Usery Jr. scheduled a 10 a.m., CDT, negotiation session, only 8Vfe hours after the talks broke up — still without an agreement in the 58-day old players' strike. "We haven't reached any agreement, but both sides are willing to come together again," Usery said hopefully. Neither Ed Garvey, executive director of the NFL Players Association, nor John Thompson, executive director of the NFL Management Council, the owners' bargaining agent, commented on what transpired in Monday's 10%-hour session. The NFLPA executive committee agreed about two weeks ago to Usery's suggestion for the cooling-off period, wherein veterans who had been on strike since July 1 returned to their training camps to work out and play in preseason games while the talks continued. The NFLPA executive committee said at that time that, if no agreement was reached by the end of the moratorium, which deadlines at midnight, Wednesday, the veterans would be called upon to resume the strike and man the picket lines once again. But four of the 26 teams—the Baltimore Colts, Buffalo Bills, Cincinnati Bengals and San Diego Chargers—have already voted to remain in camp, even if the NFLPA calls for a strike resumption. And it appears that a large number of veterans — greater than the more than 400 players who crossed picket lines before the cooling-off period began I will stay in camp, even if the NFLPA asks them to leave. The NFLPA was scheduled to meet at noon, CDT, today to decide the status of the cooling- off period, and to decide what action to take. Usery refused to speculate on what effect, if any, the end of the ccooling-off period would have on the talks, nor how long the bargaining would continue. But some sources suggested the current round of negotiations will go no further than midnight tonight. Football league, the Atlanta Falcons beat the Houston Oilers 10-6 and the Chicago Bears downed the Baltimore Colts 2016. Brown criticized the Bengals for their conditioning, saying "a lot of players are not in shape to go the whole ball game." But they seem to be able to go a little farther than the opposition, pulling victory from defeat late in all four of their pre-season games, including last week's overtime thriller against Atlanta. The Bengals flexed their fourth-quarter muscles for 14 points, erasing a 14-13 deficit with 4:24 left in the game on a seven-yard scoring pass from quarterback Ken Anderson to fullback Doug Dressier. Less than 2te minutes later, defensive back Bernard Jackson raced 52 yards on a fumble recovery to ice the Bengals' 13th straight home victory party. Brown wasn't the only winning coach who wasn't pleased with just a winning performd ance. "When the chips were down, we didn't capitalize on our chances," said Atlanta Coach Norm Van Brocklin after the Falcons outlasted the Oilers on Bob Lee's 17-yard touchdown strike to Louis Nealm "Our execution was bad but it will improve next week." The inference is that Van Brocklin's troops can expect to do some heavy scrimmaging before next weekend. And they won't be alone. "Get ready for some more work, men," Houston Coach Sid Gillman informed his players. "That's the only way to do it. We've just had one week together and we have to tie some things together." Coach Abe Gibron came closer to fitting the mold of a coach flushed with the thrill of victory: By BRUCE LOWiTT AP Sports Writer Junior Kennedy was a defensive replacement... sort of. The young Cincinnati second baseman replaced Dan Driessen in the eighth inning Monday night and promptly made the play — the bad one — that gave the Philadelphia Phillies a 7-6 victory over the Reds. The Phils loaded the bases on two singles, a sacrifice and an intentional walk, then Dave Cash punched a grounder to Kennedy's left side. The 24- year-old second baseman fielded the ball, appeared to glance toward first base for an instant, then threw home — late and wild. The ball sailed about 10 feet wide of the plate. Mike Anderson scored the tying run on what was ruled a fielder's choice and a run batted in for Cash. And Del Unser continued home on the throwing error. It proved to be the winning run when the Reds got one back in the ninth.

(AP) — Coach Lefty Driesell was well aware of the talents of Moses Malone when he won a monumental recruiting war and signed the 6-foot-ll basketball star for the University of Maryland. Now that the 17-year-old giant is being wooed by the Utah Stars of the American Basketball Association, Driesell figures Malone is being downgraded by the proffered con tract. "He is worth more than they offered," Driesell said Monday, as he awaited Malone's decision on whether to sign with the Stars or begin classes Wednesday as a freshman at Maryland. "I have never told him not to sign, but to get what he was worth," said Driesell, who has seen a copy of the Utah contract which an ABA source claims was worth more than $1 million. According to Driesell, the total guaranteed contract calls for four years at $100,000 a year, plus an additional $90,000 in bonuses. "I didn't read beyond that," Driesell said, "because the rest was on a make-good basis." In addition to claiming Malone was worth more than the offer, Driesell said: "I believe he can get a much better contract in seven months, at the end of our season, or in the future. "I told Moses when I was recruiting him, that if it was me, I would consider at the end of each season what was best for me." Malone is already pre-registered at Maryland, and classes start Wednesday. He was on the campus Monday, but gave no indication of what he planned to do. He left the campus early in the afternoon with Maryland's star junior guard, John Lucas, and assistant coach Howard White. Early Monday morning, Malone and his mother talked at the family home with Bucky Buckwalter, director of player personnel for the Stars, and James Collier, primary owner of the ABA team. "This thing is like the tide. Sometimes it's in, sometimes it's out," Collier said. nipped New York 7-6 and Detroit tamed California 6-2.

Third-place Philadelphia ended a three- game losing streak and pulled within 2Ms of first-place Pittsburgh in the East. Mets 5, Astros 4 Felix Millan squeezed home Girl footballer may not play onAltusteam ALTUS, Ark, (AP) - Linda Alston, the only girl on th_e 17- player Altus-Denning High School team, cried Monday when surgery on her hips was postponed. The postponement diminished the chance that Unda, 17, would ever take the field as a varsity high school football player. "I was mostly mad," she said. "People will think I died." Linda has been practicing as a linebacker and a running back." The brown-haired, brown- eyed senior was due to enter a Fort Smith hospital Monday to undergo surgery Tuesday to remove steel pins from her hips. The pins were emplaced about two years ago to prevent developing hip bones from slipping out of the sockets. Doctors called Monday morning to say the surgery had to be delayed until Sept. 10 because of another case that required immediate attention. Her surgeon said that after surgery, six to eight weeks would pass before Linda could bear full body weight on either leg. The Owls' nine-game season would be over by the time she healed completely. The first game will be Sept. 6, while the last will be Nov. 1. TIIKY'KH HOT tired, and aching, but those pains acquired during pre-season practice will all be worth it come September 6th in the Bobcats' season opener against Ashdown. —Hope (Ark.)

(AP) — Most football coaches would give their alumni association for Tom Osborne's Nebraska Corn- huskers, but as Osborne goes into his second year as head coach he says he is feeling intense pressure to win. After finishing last season with a o-2-l season, a No. 7 national rating and a Cotton Bowl victory, Osborne said his team did not see "wild unrestrained joy" coming from the red-clad legions of Nebraska fans. The fans want an 11-0 season every year, and to do that Osborne will have to defeat the Oklahoma Sooners, whom he says deserve to be ranked No. 1. But with the talent he has, other coaches and fans would be happy. Dave Humm will be back, aiming for several Big Eight passing records in his third season at quarterback. Last year he completed 114 of his 209 passes for 1,601 yards and 12 touchdowns. Osborne says Humm will do more running this year. But if he gets hurt, the Cornhuskers are in trouble. They have several quarterbacks in the wings, but none with any significant amount of experience. The coaching staff is high on split end Dave Shamblin and tight end Larry Mushinskie. . Tomr Cay is, last year's star line-back, will be running from the fullback position this year. Wmgback Ritch Bane is also high on the team's list of strengths, but Osborne says he has no "big explosive player" in the tradition of Johnny Rodgers. Injuries could hurt the Huskers. Besides Humm, Osborne cannot afford to do without standout center Rife Bonness, defensive tackle Ron Pruitt and defensive end Bob Martin. report «dviting you how Shwin, payment, "iouung _ . during the ptrid horn Jury 1. 1(73. thru June M.
