2—B THE REGISTBR^NEWS — MT. VERNON. ILLINOIS TUESDAY, JANUARY 28, i960 77-Rouiy Marathon ^. • aa .« p ««»* Pro Grid Scouts rt NEW YORK (AP) — Pro football's talent hunters put their scouting reports on the table today as the annual college draft —a 17-round marathon-^-got under way at ^ midtoyyn hotel. The owners, general managers and '< of the 16 National > Football - League and»10 American:.Football League clubs hoped to complete their selection lists in two days time. They were reconciled to a much longer wait before realizing the fruits of their endeavor. Of 'the 442 graduating college stars to>be;snapped up in the two*: leagues'.. ?thirdc combined draft, less, than, half figure to win jobs this summer at the AFL, and. NFL training: camps. Injuries will scratch some of the rookies, but.most of the dropouts simply won't have the ability... to make the big, jump to the hard, knocks of, the pro game. .Last year, .the pro clubs spent more than s ?4, million, scouting and signing rookie prospects. Cincinnati's AFL, expansion team , opened. its first season with 23 .first-year men on the Coster... Los. Angeles and New Orleans of the NFL went with just two apiece. , As it turned out, the 1968 rookie crop was one of the best in re- 1 cent years. ! - Detroit's' Earl McCullouch, Atlanta's Claude ' Humphrey, Philadelphia's Tim Rossovich and- Cleveland's Marvin Upshaw, all No. 1 picks, had standout freshman,! seasons in ,the NFL. Bob Johnson of Cincinnati, Miami's Larry Csonka, Kansas City's Mo Moorman and Buffalo's Haven Moses were among the first round choices who clicked in the AFL. However, running back Paul Robinson of Cincinnati and defensive back George Atkinson of Oakland emerged as the. best of the AFL lot. Robinson was the Bengals' fifth pick in the draft and Oakland didn't tab Atkinson until the seventh round. The world champion New York Jets got plenty of mileage from offensive tackle Sam Walton, their No. 3 pick. But their top choice, touted fullback, Lee White, injured a knee in the first game and was lost for the remainder of the season.... The stakes were high—and the risks heavy — as the pros gathered. around the draft table this morning for another stargazing fling. O.J. Simpson, Leroy Keyes, Ted Kwalick and Co. have proven themselves in the college game. But the pro proving grounds still lie ahead.

(AP)—Lamar Hunt, the founder of the American Football league,; is open to the .floor for suggestions on thii realignment business with the National Football League., , VI.,don't have any real strong feelings one way. or; the. other, but I feel it is very important for pro football in the final producti to have two, entities in the -mind of the public battling toward, a championship game," said Hunt, a member of. a six- man c committee studying realignment. \, He said "I think it would be a mistake to go to one single league and' call it the,United Football League or something with, an Eastern versus Western Division playoff. >"The Super Bowl format is goodc;It stimulates tremendous interest.

I can see where Phil Esposito High Scorer In NHL East Loop NEW YORK (AP) - Phil Esposito, whose superior play at center has helped Boston open a seven-point lead in the National Hockey League's East Division held ah eight-point lead today in the circuit's individual scoring race. Esposito boosted his totals to 30 gals and 43 assists for 73 points in last week's games while former teammate Bobby Hull maintained second place with 65 points on 31 goals and 34 assists. Hull and Detroit's Frank Mahovlich are tied for the lead in goals. Gordie. Howe of Detroit is third in points with 64 followed by Stan,Mikita of Chicago, the defending scoring titleholder, 58 and Alex Delvecchio of Detroit, another veteran, with 54. Red Berenson of St. Louis Is the only player from the West Division in the first 10. He is in eight place with 51 points. : Two other St. Louis standouts, Jacques Plante and Glenn Hall, continue to lead the goalies with an average yield of only 2.04 goals a game. the Jets would be a tremendous draw in an NFL town such as Pittsburgh which is having its pioblems.'" jjtfainteuance- Free!
