But the opener will be a brief season, indeed, lasting only until Dec. 1. The second phase of the split waterfowl season will open Dec. 14 and continue through Jan. 14. Hunters will be allowed to take a daily bag limit of four By United Press International Joe Namath is mixing a batch of Sauers guaranteed to create double vision for San Diego defenders. The New York Jets, still stirred up by last weekend's last minute loss to Oakland, plan to blend Namath's rediscovered touchdown passing eye with George Sauer's phenomenal pass catching Sunday to secure at least a tie for the American Football League's Eastern Division title. Namath was shut out for six consecutive games before connecting on a TD throw against the Raiders in a game that has jiitm inn uiir.

In addition to four ducks daily, hunters may take five mergan-zers. of which not more than one may be a hooded merganzer. The southeast portion of the Loxahatchee Recreation Area i Conservation Area li will be opened to duck hunters again this year, but hunters who plan to shoot in this federal preserve should obtain a list of special regulations and a map of the hunt area in advance.

Namath has a formidable target in Sauer. the league's leading receiver with 52 catches. Actually, the aerial circus could produce some of the highest scoring this season even though the Jets have the best defense in the league, while the Chargers are No. 3. But the match-up of targets is worthy two pass-minded clubs. Namath has Sauer and Don Maynard. San Diego features John Hadl passing to Gary Garrison, with nine TD grabs and Lance Alworth. second in receptions with 48 and Jacques MacKinnon. San Diego, a six point choice, has a chance to tie idle Kansas City for the Western Division lead and a three-way deadlock could emerge if Oakland completes an expected romp ofer Cincinnati. Boston plays Miami and Buffalo meets Denver in the only other scheduled action. Houston rests up for its Thanksgiving Day battle with Kansas City. The Jets beat san Diego 23-20 in a previous meeting Oct. 5. on a last minute touchdown drive, but in that game New York had its starting line-backer Larry Grantham in top physical shape. Grantham is a "possible" starter because of neck injury. 30,000 Ducks Estimated APWirttXwt this year in the NFL to the New York Ciants. The only winless club in pro football, the Eagles will have a chance to break the streak or make longer today when they meet the Browns in Cleveland. TAKING LOSING EMOTIONALLY - Joe Kuharich, the Philadelphia Eagles coach showed these feelings to the action or in action as the Eagles suffered their 10th - that's right - their 10th straight loss The present duck population in the Loxahatchee Wildlife Refuge is estimated at 30.000 to 35.000. according to Marvin Hurdle. Public t'se Specialist. U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. Hurdle said the ring neck duck is by far the most prevalent species of duck in the area, followed by the bluewing teal and the Florida mallard. Hurdle said the buildup of ducks in the area is about comparable to last year at this time. He pointed out, however, that many ducks left the refuge last season due to warm weather. If the cool weather continues this season, hunters probably will find more targets in the refuge. According to a report from the Loxahatchee Recreation Area, new flights of ducks arrived in Conservation Area 2 and the lower end of Area 1 during the past week as a result of the last two cold fronts moving down from the North. Two entrances to the federal refuge are available to hunters. One of these is located at refuge headquarters west of Delray Beach, and the other is the Loxahatchee Recreation Area at the south Palm Beach Countv line.

As announced two weeks ago in The Post-Times, the opening game will be against the new Montreal Expos on Friday, March 7. The Expos and Braves have been negotiating over business aspects of sharing the same stadium, and a final announcement is expected Monday. Teams to appear here against the Braves in addition to the Expos include the Los Angeles Dodgers, New York Yankees, Baltimore Orioles, Washington Senators twice each, Houston, Kansas City, Minnpsota, Chicago White Sox and New York Mets once each. The Minnesota game will be the only night game here.

Refuge officials have issued a reminder that a state law requires hunters must fly a 12-inch square flag 10 feet above the bottom of their boat. All prescribed safety equipment must be aboard boats. Florida duck hunters again this year are being asked to assist in a study of the population structure of the Florida mallard. The study is being conducted by the Florida Game and Fresh Water Fish Commission and the University of Florida's Wildlife Ek'ology Laboratory, but the cooperation of hunters will be the key to thesuccess of the research project. The Florida mallard is of considerable importance to Florida hunters because the bird is non-migratory and represents about one-fifth of the total waterfowl harvest in this state. This is how hunters can help in the study: S Sunday's Hwul Houston 38.

Baltimore is favored by 10 points. The Vikings' front four, featuring Alan Page and Carl Eller. has dumped the opposing quarterback 38 times this season while safetyman Paul Krause has picked off seven passes. The Colts' defense has been just as impressive with 22 interceptions and have allowed the fewest number of points. 108. of any team in the NFL.

San Francisco is 5 1-2 over the Steelers in Pittsburgh, the Lions are 11 points over New Orleans at Detroit, the Browns are 17 1-2 over Philadelphia in Cleveland. Green Bay is 12 over the Redskins in Washington, the Cardinals are 10 1-2 points over Atlanta in St. Louis and Dallas at Chicago is off the board. Since both teams have tough defenses, the Colts' Earl Morrall may be the difference in the game. Morrall has completed 133-of-236 for a league-leading 2.186 yards and 20 TD's. After their big win over Dallas, the Giants (7-3 1 just edged by winless Philadelphia last week 7-6. and the offense will have to perk up against the Rams.

"I was restless, and everything looked so great." she savs. "I said to myself, 'this is it." " A bad fall Penny Ann took in a morning workout at Arlington Park two summers ago convinced even her critics that she was rugged enough for the racetrack. Despite three broken ribs, a broken nose and a dislocated verti bra In her neck, she was out of action only two weeks. A barn fire that same summer in which seven horses died brought out the softer, sentimental side of Penny Ann that her friends like to cite. "When she heard the noise from the fire." a horseman who was there recalled, "she ran out of her trailer and went right into the burning bam. But the flames burned off her eyebrows and drove her back. She just stood outside the barn.
