ams According To From Wire Reports ,. George Allen flew into Los Angeles last night, ostensibly to be named head coach of the Rams, but he refused to confirm that he was Carroll Rosenbloom's choice to succeed Chuck Knox. A source close to Allen, fired by the Washington Redskins last month, said the coach would take over the Rams today. Team owner Rosenbloom denied that Allen had been appointed coach, but the 6dk Form Club More Women Outdoor-Minded By JIMMY HOLT Tennessean Fishing Editor Women are beginning to take more interest in outdoor activities, and they 're disturbed over the lack of clothing and equipment manufactured on their behalf. 'An organization known as Outdoor Women, a national associa-tion located in Washington, hopes to change all that. ACCORDING TO an article I recently read, many women have been frustrated in their search for the outdoor experience. If they don't have boyfriend, husband or . father to teach them, most never get the opportunity to learn and enjoy the outdoors. . The Outdoor Women organiza-V tion was founded by several lead-, ing sportswomen, including Joan Cone, outdoor consultant, lecturer, and author; Sheila Lenk, Marg Nichols, and Kathy Farmer, out-doorjournalists; Ann Snow, owner of a Texas hunting ranch, and Bass . 'N Gal's Bobbie Rowden. "We want to open up the outdoors to women . . . single, young divorcees, and those who are married to husbands who don't enjoy " the outdoors," said Joan Cone. A monthly news letter is pub- lished by Outdoor Women that goes to all members. It is believed that when the membership grows the new letter will develop into a mag- " azine and will inform its members on the practical, techni-I cal, and political side of their sports. . , ALREADY THE organization --has held a hunting and fishing workshop for women. These work-Ishops are planned for all states. - Outdoor Women will lobby with -other groups to sponsor responsi-t ifcle legislation that affects natural Resources, hunting and fishing. ; In the field of manufacturing, the -women feel they have been slight- ed. "We can't find fishing equip-. ment, guns or clothing to tit," T; stated Cone. "We want to educate :; manufacturers because many of them are ignoring us. Sometimes : a i Monte Hale Chosen Sounds' Broadcaster Monte Hale, who has broadcast ; -Middle Tennessee State's football "and basketball games over Mur-: :freesboro's WMTS-FM, has been I .named the voice of the Nashville ;-;Sounds baseball club for this sea-'-:son. AH of the Sounds games, home .';."and away, will be broadcast on :r WMTS-FM, the flag station of a network which will include one - Nashville station to be named :l later. McDonald Quits At Wyoming ;Jjr LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) University of Wyoming forward '-.belbert McDonald has quit with nine games left in the ' basketball season because of personal reasons, a school . Spokesman said yesterday. McDonald, a 6-foot-S junior from Los Angeles and letterman last year, averaged 4.2 points a r. "game this season. Come see the one residential community in Nashville that has an enclosed security-controlled parking garage ROKEBY Model residences open Monday-Friday 9-5. Sunday 1-5 P.M. Call 383-2703 for further information. To Hire Rams have a banquet room reserved at a Los Angeles hotel at noon today, apparently for a press conference. "We are going to discuss the job," Allen told a throng of reporters at the airport, "but it may be a while before a final decision. Janet Guthrie, the first woman to drive in the Indianapolis 500, may they don't even answer our letters." Sounds like the women have good reason to gripe, however, I feellike youngsters have the same problem' with equipment and clothing. Have you ever tried to buyyour daughter or son hunting clothing, or for that matter fishing wear? . . . about the only thing available is grown men. HOPEFULLY, THE women's organization will get the ball rolling, and manufacturers will produce gear for them to enjoy outdoor sports. Also, maybe the manufacturers will see the. additional need for youngsters' insulated clothing for winter wear and at the same time consideration for summer attire. O.J. Eyes More Than One Year BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) - Coach Chuck Knox of the Buffalo Bills says running back O.J. Simpson wants to play longer than the one season left in his contract with the Bills. In a telephone interview from Los Angeles, Knox told the Buffalo Courier-Express that he talked with Simpson Monday. "He told me he wants to play for me more than one year in Buff alo," Knox said. Simpson, who missed the last half of the 1977 National Football League season because of knee surgery, has one year remaining in a three-year contract with the Bills. Vandy Still (From First Sports Page) some extent, Mike Rhodes have also have joined in a great effort on the boards, where once only Charles Davis was effective. REBOUNDING will be of the utmost importance, if indeed it is ever anything else, this Saturday when Auburn strolls in. Vandy was a 13-point loser at Auburn early last month when Sneed, with six, was the leading Commodore rebounder. Freshman Bobby Cattage, 6-9; and seniors Mike Mitchell and Myles Patrick, both 6-8 and strong, are an awesome trio on the boards for Auburn. And, Cattage didn't play against Vandy earlier, sitting out with a leg injury. "Auburn is as strong a board team as there is in the conference," Dobbs said. "Obviously, we need to get ready."
