Campbell, Allan la's defensive coordinator since 1969 before taking over as head coach last Tuesday when Norm Van Brocklin was fired, will be taking the heat—or the praise-Sunday after his first game at the helm. It's a tough start for the 45-year-old former Georgia tackle. He's sending his Falcons against the Rams in Los Angeles, where the Falcons have never won a game. No doubt th« Falcons, seemingly much more relaxed this week than they'd ever been this year under Van Brocklin, will be trying to win this one for Campbell, an easy-going, open man in stark contrast to his stormy, guarded predecessor. Campbell would rather the Falcons stay away from the "Let's win one for the Gipper" business. "I want them to rear back and let it rip," he said. "1 want them to win for themselves." The Rams art- 13-poinl favorites. For the first time as Atlanta's quarterback Leo will be calling his own signals instead of carrying out the unbending sideline orders Van Brocklin used to .send in. And if for some reason falters, McQuilken just may get his chance to show what he's i;ot. The rookie from Lehigh has been getting in more practice time lately and apparently is being considered as the Falcons' No. 2 quarterback. While Lee calls his signals, James Harris of the Rams will still be getting his from the bench. Harris took over the quarterback! ng job from the since-traded John Hadl three weeks ago—and Los Angeles has won three straight. "James Harris is capable of calling his own plays," Coach Chuck Knox said. "The reason we 1 call thi! plays is that there will now be no question in anybody's mind about who's responsible. Chuck Knox is responsible." In Sunday's other games, it's Miami at New Orleans, Houston at Buffalo, Cleveland at New England, Denver at Baltimore, Pittsburgh at Cincinnati, San Diego at Kansas City, Chicago at Green Bay, San Francisco at Dallas, Washington at Philadelphia, Detroit at Oakland and the New York Jets at the New York Giants. On Monday night, Minnesota is at St. Ixmis. Miami Coach Don Shula lifted the suspension against running back Mercury Morris Friday and said Morris would be ready to play Sunday at New Orleans. Morris worked out with the squad Friday and declared himself ready to play. Morris was suspended Thursday after missing three days of therapy treatments for injuries that have kept him sidelined much of the season. The fleet runner said he was ready to play. Shula disagreed and slapped Morris with the suspension, which was supposed to run through Sunday's game before the coach changed his mind. Quarterback injuries are nagging a number of clubs. San Diego may have to start rookie Jesse Freitas against Kansas City if Dan Fouts" bruised ribs aren't fully healed. Washington may go with Billy Kilmer against Philadelphia in the event Sonny Jurgensen's banged up knees and bruised thigh are still bothering him. Bobby Douglass had to finish last week's game for the Bears and he may start Sunday's against Green Bay because Gary Huff's sprained ankle may keep him sidelined. Marty Doinres' status as the Colts' starter against Denver is questionable. He has a breastbone injury and, with Bert Jones definitely out with a bad shoulder, rookie Bill Troup may start. Norm Snead is listed as San Francisco's starting passer against Dallas despite a minor leg injury.

By Ira Berkow NKA Sports Editor \KW YORK - (NBA) - As much as we'll miss them, I ihink they'll miss us a hell of a lot, too. Never over one summer have so many marvelous basketball players opted to store their jock straps and grimy socks in moth balls for posterity. Oscar Robertson, Jerry West, Pave DeBusschere. Willis Reed, Wilt Chamberlain and Jerry Lucas have retired. For them, the cheers that echoed through arenas across the nation.will grow fainter. And 1 am reminded of this loss lo the players themselves because of something Jerry West said after his last college game at West Virginia: "When 1 left the game the fans gave me a standing ovation. It's a cliche to say it was a thrill, but what can you say? How many people are applauded in all their lives? It's a feeling Dial's very difficult to describe." They have been with us for quite a long time, and we with them."Wilt played 14 seasons in the NBA, as did Oscar and West. Lucas, Heed and DeBusschere played a few years less. All simply grew older, and the mechanisms that made up I heir magnificent bodies began to deteriorate and fray. None was what he once was; each could have continued on a bit further, however, but circumstances ranging from self-pride to owners' reluctance to keep dishing out huge salaries for lesser performances determined the final results. The records they set, particularly Wilt, Oscar and West, are awesome. And it is difficult to think of an upcoming basketball season in which there is no Wilt blocking a shot like King Kong swatting an airplane, no Oscar squirting a pass through a windmill of opponents to a cutting teammate, no West hitting that silky stop-on-a-dime, fadeaway jumper lo break a tie at the buzzer. And no Lucas with that funny 30-foot hip shot, no Reed setting stolid Buddha-like picks, no DeBusschere grimacing as he strains every fiber for a drive. Like all great athletes, however, they were possessors of frailties, too. Will and Oscar stomped and cried when everything did not. go right for them. And Lucas seemed never to reach his great potential, always seeming to disappear for long minutes at a time in a game, and sometimes for a whole half a season or so. And DeBusschere and Reed and West, rarely the center of personality conflicts like the other three, had their share of physical problems over the years. We will miss each for helping us enjoy spectator sports at its finest, and, by playing so well for so long, giving us a welcome touchstone while much of the rest of the world went haywire around us. Applause was not all we were able to extend these fine athletes. We provided a forum for their talents, a place where they could be loved and appreciated at best (but where we also booed them and grew impatient at their lapses, thus establishing a realistic balance.)' The incredible sums of money, reaching to as much as $1 million in a season for Wilt, allowed these men to reap the benefits of the box office and live in a style heretofore reserved for sceptered emperors. (Wilt, for example, had a blanket made from wolf noses.) And though we may too often have expected too much from these ^'supermen," thus creating at times a neurotic defensiveness within them (particularly with Wilt and Oscar), we still cheered and clapped with exciting wonderment at their achievements and they understandably grew filled with their own self-esteem. Not a bad thing, at all. And where else could someone like 7-2 Wilt or 6-11 Reed have found a less self-conscious home for his bulk than in pro basketball? Each can go on to challenging work in or but of basketball because of the reputations they have/earned and the fame we have heaped upon them. On the last night of the regular season last March 26, Dave DeBusschere was honored at Madison Square Garden. He had already announced that he was retiring to take a $100,000 a year job for 10 years as general manager of the New York Nets. Near the end of his speech just before the game, his throat got thick and tears came to his eyes. "When the final buzzer sounds after the playoffs..." The crowd broke in with chants and howls as they had from the moment he began to talk. And he waited, wiped a tear, and continued when the crowd subsided. When it's over,' he finished, "it's going to tear me up a little inside." (NKWSl'AI'KH KNTKltl'HlSK ASSN.I FRO BASKETBALL WILL BE A LITTLE less exciting this year in the wake of the retirement of six all-time greats. L. to r.: Oscar Robertson, Jerry West, Dave DeBusschere, Willis Reed, Wilt Chamberlain and Jerry Lucas. ies have SWC spotlight By DENNE H. FREEMAN AP Sports Writer The spotlight is on the fifth- ranked Texas Aggies Saturday in Southwest Conference football play but the real war—a hair-pulling battle for survival—will be going on down in Waco. Texas A&M cruises into Dallas an eight-point favorite to pound Southern Methodist. The Aggies are 4-0 in SWC games and 7-1 overall—their best start since 1957. The only teams left with a chance to catch the Cadets, de- Baylor, cut each other up at Baylor Stadium. Both the Longhorns and Bears own a conference loss. No team has ever won the SWC title with two defeats. Texas Coach Darrell Royal has always dreaded the trip to fending champion Texas and Waco, where the Bears are usu- Bills picked over Oilers., Atlanta chosen over LA By BEN THOMAS AP Sports Writer NEW YORK (AP) - Okay, you want action? No delays, just business. So, how about Atlanta over Los Angeles? And Houston over Buffalo! Far fetched? Maybe — but over the years, a change of coaches in midseason often sets the stage for an upset. .This could mean an Atlanta victory. But what about one for Houston? While you mull over this for a moment, let's report that last week's effort by the Pro Pigskin Picker was 13-0, a perfect slate. It lifted the season's showing to 74-29-1 for .718. Now back to Atlanta and Houston: ATLANTA (2-6) at LOS ANGELES (6-2): The Falcons have never won in Los Angeles, but they have a chance to redeem themselves and provide Marion Campbell, Norm Van Brocklin's successor, with his first victory.

"We have had nothing but trouble when we have gone over to Waco," Royal says. "They are gonna be sky-high and as I've said before, if the old Bear grads wants to see them put their best foot forward, they oughta show up, because they are gonna do it. "Baylor is pretty sound all the way around. Neal Jeffrey is as talented a passer as we've faced, but they are not all pass. They have integrated it into their running game and they have a controlled offense and do a super job with the two together. They do best what we have the most trouble with, and that's pass." Aggie backers will be pulling hard for a Baylor victory. A&M has already beaten Baylor 20-0. Should the Bears upset Texas, then A&M could afford a loss to Texas and still make it to the Cotton Bowl. Texas is a 14-point favorite with some 45,000 fans expected for Baylor Stadium. Baylor :Coach Grant Teaff says of Texas, "They are awesome, as usual, and can do so many things well. They're smelling cotton now and it will take an all out effort to stay up with them. But, you know, our young men have lots of class, too, and they just might surprise some folks." Aggie Coach Emory Bellard says his team is dreaming Cotton bowl, also. "We've been thinkine Cotton Bowl all along... that's what it's all about," Bellard says. In games for pure pride, Rice is at Arkansas and Texas Christian is at Texas Tech. Arkansas is a nine-point pick over the Owls, who stunned Tech last week, and the shaken Red Raiders are 20-point favorites over the hapless Horned Frogs. Both Minnesota and Atlanta gave up on pitcher Luis Tiant in 1971. Both teams gave him an unconditional release.
