Page Four HOPE (ARK.) STAR Wednesday, October 23, 1974 I Ohio State looks to stay unbeaten NEW YORK (AP) - "We expect another team U> try and beat us, but we're not goinn to let it happen." So says Ohio State's Woody Hayes as the 6-0 Buckeyes fid ready to defend their No. 1 rankiny against 1-6 Northwestern. "We've had offensive consistency around 73 per cent for three straight weeks," he said. "The reason we're not getting better is using other players so much." The number will stay around the 73 per cent level again as the Buckeyes use a lot of players in beating Northwestern ... 56-7. I^ast week's score was 45 right, 17 wrong and two ties for .726, bringing the season's Scoreboard to 279-108-12-.721. All three Upset Specials went down the drain, however, although West Virginia came within seconds of beating Miami, Fla., before losing by a point. Oklahoma 6, Kansas State 7: If that's a good score for Ohio State, why not for Oklahoma? Michigan 35, Minnesota 14: For the Little Brown Jug Minnesota gets jugged and mugged. Alabama 42, Texas Christian 7: TCU won't stop 'Bama, even though the Horned Frogs have won all three previous meetings with the Tide. Auburn 20, Florida State 7: Auburn has never lost to FSU and there's no reason to start now. Southern California 34, Ore- con State 7: USC's passing game might not be as good as it should be, but the ground game, led by Anthony Davis, is no problem. Notre Dame 14, Miami, Fla. 7: Hurricanes come on strong to avenge last year's 44-0 shellacking, but not strong enough. Upset Special of the Week ... Baylor 21, Texas A&M 20. You know the times are chan- .'jn' when the winner of this one is still unbeaten in Southwest Conference play. Second Upset Special ... Georgia Tech 24, Tulane 21: Yellow Jackets are unbeaten at homo .since the Notre Dame opener. Third Upset Special ... Princeton 24, Penn 21: A prize to anyone who can spell Sni- ekenberger and Bellizeare. Bonus Upset Special ... Indiana 20, Wisconsin 15. Indiana lost by 40 to Ohio State, Wisconsin lost by 45, which means t))L>,Hoosiers are five points better. Doesn't it? Nebraska 28, Oklahoma State 17: Cornhuskers were fit to be tied last year; this time, they're Humming ... with Dave Humm. Penn State 31, West Virginia 14: Lions always wins this one ... or does it just seem that way? Texas Tech 24, Southern Methodist 17: Red Raiders can'i afford another SWC setback. Florida 27, Duke 14: Unless the r.;;tors decide to look ahead lo Auburn. Texas 35, Rice 7: Officials won't lose this one for the Owls. Arizona State 41, New Mexico 14: Last year it was 67-24. Maryland 24, North Carolina SUite 22: This game and next week's meeting with Penn State will prove how good the Terps really are. Arizona 35, Brigham Young 28: Wildcvits are back in their league — the Western Athletic Conference — after losing their unbeaten record to Texas Tech of the Southwest Conference. Miami of Ohio 35, Toledo 17: Redskins have allowed only 30 points all season. Georgia 24, Kentucky 21: But it could go the oilier way ... and isn't that a great line? Temple 28, Delaware 14: Good University Division team beats good College Division team ... which should really be in the University Division. Hope #$:. Star Sports Pokes Morton gets traded Quarterbacks are hot trading items By BEN THOMAS AP Sports Writer The National Football League played musical chairs — with quarterbacks. By the time the game was over, four clubs had new quarterbacks. The Los Angeles Rams had the biggest surprise Tuesday, final day for interclub trading — and got the biggest reward, five draft choices from the Green Bay Packers for John Hadl. That's right, the Rams traded away John Hadl, the quarterback who made all pro after leading them to a 12-2 record last year. Hadl couldn't get the Football Results Russia, U.S. picked as Olympic sites VIENNA (AP) — Moscow and I-ake Placid, N.Y., were awarded the 1980 Olympic Games today. The International Olympic Committee voted for Moscow and against Los Angeles, the other candidate, for the Summer Games. I.ake Placid was the only '•andidate for the Winter (James. The voting figures in the secret ballot were not announced. The decision was announced by IOC President Lord Killanin after the voting in Vienna's City Hall. The bids of the candidate cities had been heard behind closed doors Tuesday. The IOC Congress opened on Monday and the decision on the hi'i's of the 1980 Games was one <jf 'he highlights. In Pee Wee League action Tuesday, First National eased by Citizens Bank, 8-0, and Greening-Ellis continued it undefeated ways by crushing Spears, 25-0. In Little League play, An- LA's Alston tabbed as NL manager NEW YORK (AP) - Walter Alston, the Los Angeles Dodgers' unflappable general, was named The Associated Press' National League Manager of the Year today. The stoic Alston, who guided the Dodgers to the National League pennant this season for tin- seventh time in his 21-year big league career, won in a rout. Alston outscored Danny Mur- Uuigh, manager of the National League East champion Pittsburgh Pirates, 290 votes to 87. Voting by the nation's sports writers and broadcasters took place prior to the league's playoffs. Red Schoendienst, whose St. Louis Cardinals battled Pittsburgh down to the end for the East title, finished third in the balloting with 26 votes. Finishing behind the top three were, Danny Ozark of the Philadelphia Phillies with six votes; Atlanta's Clyde King with three and Cincinnati's Spark}' Anderson with two. Alston took a relatively young team to the heights this year. It was his tender, loving care that made champions out of the Dodgers. "I know that the players have enough to think about on the field, so I try not to give them too many problems in the clubhouse," says the easy-going Alston. Once asked his philosophy, the dean of major league managers noted: "I pat most everybody on the back and kick the rare ones that need to be kicked." Alston was born in Hamilton, Ohio, 62 years ago and once worked as a high school basketball coach and science teacher. He entered the Dodger organization with their Trenton, N.J., team and also managed at Montreal before being named the Dodger field boss for the 1954 season. Alston signed a one-) ear contract tliat season, and uniquely has kfpt up the pattern throughout his glamorous career. "One-year contracts are a matter of pride with me," Alston savs. derson-Frazier defeated Hope Auto, 29-6, to keep its record unblemished, and Young Chevrolet knocked off James Motor, 15-6. During last week's action in Pee Wee league, Greening-Ellis defeated Citizens Bank, 26-0 and Spears squeezed by First National, 7-0. In Little League play, Anderson-Frazier stopped Young Chevrolet, 19-3, and Hope Auto took a 20-0 win over James Motor Co. In the flag- football league, Greening-Ellis smashed Hope Builders 40-14. Colony Shoppe defeated Citizens Bank, 21-7, and Hope Concrete won over Zeco in a high-scoring game, 4525. Thursday will see three games in the flag league starting at 6p.m. Hope Builders will face Zeco, followed by Hope Concrete and Citizens Bank at 7 p.m., and finishing up with Greening-Ellis taking on Colony Shoppe at 8 p.m. Last Saturday, two local teams, Greening-Ellis of the Pee Wee League and Young Chevrolet of the Little League, came away with victories over teams from Nashville. In the Pee Wee game, the locals shut out Nashville, 13-0. Young Chevrolet managed a 137 victory over the visitors. Standings for the following leagues are: PEE WEE LEAGUE W L Greening-Ellis 4 0 Citizens Bank 2 2 Spears 1 3 Frist National 1 3 LITTLE LEAGUE , Anderson-Frazier 4 0 Hope Auto 2 2 Young Chevrolet 2 2 James Motor Co. 0 4 FLAG FOOTBALL W L Greening-Ellis 3 0 Colony Shoppe 3 0 Hope Builders 2 1 Hope Concrete 1 2 Citizens Bank 0 3 Zeco 0 3 Los Angeles offense to move this year. It meant that James Harris' promotion to starter is permanent. The 27-year-old black quarterback threw three touchdown passes last Sunday and got the Los Angeles offense cracking for the first time in 1974. In the other deals involving quarterbacks, Craig Morton, the disenchanted Dallas Cowboy backup man, was sent to the New York Giants, who dealt journeyman veteran Norm Snead to the San Francisco 49ers, who then traded Joe Reed to the Detroit Lions. Archie Manning, however, stayed with the New Orleans Saints, who apparently couldn't make the right deal for their quarterback by the 4 p.m., EOT, Tuesday trading deadline, even though he was benched last week. Manning had been on the trading block, reliable league sources reported. In the day's other exchanges, defensive tackle Curley Gulp and a 1975 No. 1 draft choice went from the Kansas City Chiefs to the Houston Oilers for defensive tackle John Matuszak and a No. 2 draft pick for 1976. Cornerback Jim Marsalis was dealt by the Chiefs to the Denver Broncos in exchange for tackle Tom Drougas and linebacker Tom Graham. To get Hadl, the Packers agreed to give up their No. 1 and No. 2 draft picks for 1975 and 1976, plus a No. 3 pick for 1975. The Cowboys swapped Morton to the Giants for a No. 1 draft pick in 1975, provided Morton doesn't jump'to' the- :| World Football League, and ""' Snead was sent from New York to the 49ers for two high draft picks, one in 1975 and the second in 1976. Morton could play against the Cowboys on Sunday when the Giants entertain Dallas at New Haven, Conn. Morton, as well as three of the other players involved in Tuesday's trading, has signed with the WFL. DALLAS (AP) - The Dallas Cowboys shipped unhappy quarterback Craig Morton to the New York Giants Tuesday where he could torpedo once- and-for-all the Cowboys' desperate bid to remain alive in the National Football League playoffs. Dallas, owning a 2-4 record and In danger of missing the NFL playoffs for the first time in nine years, play the Giants Sunday in New Haven. Cowboy Coach Tom Landry downplayed that the Giants might use Morton immediately against Dallas. "I would doubt if he would play .Sunday," Landry said. "That would be pushing him pretty fast into the New York system. I would't think he would start." The Giants traded Norm Snead to the San Francisco 49ers. Jim Del Gaizo has been the starter recently because of injuries to Snead. Landry said the Giants would probably pump Morton for information. "Oh, they might get some information but their coaches know our team," Landry said. "We've got to go out and whip 'em regardless of what they know we are doing." Landry said the Cowboys received a 1975 first round draft choice. A provision in the trade agreement between Dallas and New York made for adjustments in draft choices in 1976 depending on whether Morton plays for the Giants in 1975. Morton signed a three-year contract with the Houston Texans of the World Football League. Houston has moved to Shreveport and Morton says the contract is now void because of the move. "This is the best deal for Craig because the Snead trade left the New York job wide open ... He can be No. 1 there," said Landry. "The trade is fine with me," Morton said. "I appreciate the Cowboys doing what they could for me." Morton, a 10-yeaf veteran, demanded to be traded after he failed to show up for practice Mondav. •'I was tired of being wasted," said Morton, who was playing behind Roger Staubach. Morton was Dallas No. i draft choice in 1965 out of Call- fornia. He was a starter in 1969 and 1970, but was the losing quarterback in Super Bowl V. He had a career 80 touchdown passes and a 52.3 per centage. Rookie free agent Clint Longley of Abilene Christian is Staubach's backup now. r Start your assets by having a positive attitude toward personal values.
