(UPI Telephoto) Wyoming Eyes UNM, WAC Lead While Arizona Is Battling Indiana By AL DEN BESTE Associated Press Sports Writer Wyoming's football Cowboys are almost a sure bet to gain sole possession of first place in the Western Athletic Conference this weekend. The Cowboys, tied with unbeaten Arizona for the con-erence lead, meet the winless New Mexico Lobos in Laramie, while Arizona faces its biggest Intersectional battle of the year, against Big Ten Indiana at Bloomington. In the other conference game, a resurgent University of Texas-El Paso meets Brigham Young at Provo. Colorado State goes out of the conference against the University of Pacific, and Utah travels to Pacific Eight Oregon. Arizona State gets an idle weekend to rest and to dry out after last weekend's muddy 28-9 defeat at the hands of Oregon State in Portland. The Arizona-Indiana clash shapes up as a "something's gotta give" contest. Arizona is among the nation's leaders in all defensive categories. The stingy Wildcats have yielded a miserly average 5.6 points per game; Pups Sharpen Defense For UTEP Contest Pass defense and plenty of itlfensive has taken major consideration in the University of New Mexico V.'olfpup practice sessions this week as they prepare for the University of Texas at El Paso starters include Tom McBee at split end, Brad Bramer and Don Thompson at the tackles, Ed McElroy and Herman Fredenburg at the guards, and Steve Swanson at freshman. It was the lack of j center. Harry Price will again pass defense that resulted in a;start at the tight end slot. In the bnckfield with Peterson will be 17-6 defeat for the Wolf pups at Mike Barbere at fullback, Ross at tailback, and Steve Fuller at wingback. On defense Bame plans to start Mike Buck and Rick Ferguson at the ends, Corky Vincent and Don Thompson at tackles, and Skip Lawson at middle guard. John Kubler. Archer, and Elvin Gant 175 yards in total defense and 44.3 yards in rushing defense Indiana is averaing 29.6 points per game and 489.8 yards. The Hoosiers have lost to Kansas and Michigan. Wyoming coach Lloyd Eaton was not about to claim victory yet against the undermanned New Mexico Lobos. New Mexico fell apart in the third quarter against lightly regarded San Jose State last weekend and took a 55-24 thumping. The Lobos travel to Laramie with only 38 players on their active list. "They have a lot of good players but they have made a lot of mistakes so far this season," Eaton said. "They have a fine runner in David Bookert . . ." srignam Young, witti con- ference losses to both Wyoming! and Arizona, is looking for its! first conference victory against! UTEP. But El Paso's Miners, says; coach Bobby Dobbs, "have come home." Dobbs said after: last weekend's 30-14 triumph over New Mexico State that the I Miners finally found their the 1A title and advance to the playoffs with a victory over Aztec there Saturday afternoon. The Chargers of Coach John O'Connor, who announced Thursday he was giving up the coaching job after this year, carry a spotless 5-0 record against the Tigers who are 6-1. Both teams are 3-0 in league play. Academy will be playing without its all-state halfback Reggie Gallegos for the third straight game. Gallegos suffered a leg injury against St. Michael's three weeks ago and it hasn't responded to treatment. HIGHLAND TRAVELS t o Farmington tonight with a chance to jump into a tie with Sandia for the 2AA lead. The Hornets, idle last week, are 4-1 on the season while the Matadors are 5-1. Farmington is 5-2 on the season but even with the home advantage is a heavy underdog to the Hornets. Del Norte carries a 3-2 mark into its game with the Bulldogs who are 0-4-1. Rio Grande has won only once in six outings while Santa Fe is 3-2-1. AIS is 6-1 while Laguna- Acoma is struggling at 2-4-1. m i j. . y T- jrV , .

Harper also said present assistant Joe Armijo would assume the head coaching1 duties next year. O'Connor indicated he was giving up the coaching job to devote all of his time to classroom teaching and to his recently assumed responsibilities as director of college placement at the school. During his tenure as head coach at the Academy, it has compiled a 22-3 record and the Chargers are currently 5-0. Academy plays Aztec Saturday with the winner of that game winning the Dist. 1A title and advancing to the playoffs. Armijo is a graduate of St. Michael's High School and Santa Fe College. Prior to joining the Academy faculty in 1965, he coached track and assisted in basketball at St. Pius for six years. , By FRANK MAESTAS Two more district titles are on the line today and Saturday and it looks like the Academy will capture the 1A crown and Estancia the 2B-South title. Academy travels to Aztec to test tough Aztec with the winner advancing into the playoffs. Estancia has a date with Springer which is only 1-6. In Class AA, Highland is favored to move past Farm ington and into a tie with San dia for the 2AA leadership. Meanwhile, Artesia should have no trouble with Carlsbad. But Clovis is a slight pick to hand Hobbs its first league defeat. We came up with our third week with 30 right and 7 wrong That puts us at .747 on the year with 215-73. Here is the way they look this week. HIGHLAND 2 7 , FARMINGTON 7: There is very little chance Highland will be looking past the Scorps to its battle with Sandia next week since this one counts just as much. DEL NORTE 20, AHS 7: Its hard to believe the Bulldogs are winless this late in the season but they'll have to wait at least one more week. ACADEMY 27, AZTEC 13: Even without Reggie Gallegos, and playing on the road, the Tieers and clinch the Dist championship. ARTESIA 34, CARLSBAD 7: The defending AA champions have little trouble with once-ti-tle hopeful Carlsbad for their sixth victory of the season. CLOVIS 20, HOBBS 14: The Wildcats play the role ot spoilers unless Artesia's 34-14 victory last week took everything out of them. Highlands Regains 1st In NAIA Football Poll Compiled From Journal Wires NEW YORK - New Mexico Highlands used an 8 5-14 trouncing of Colorado Mines last Saturday to vault atop this week's NAIA football ratings and also climbed in both the United Press International and Associated Press small college polls. Highlands got nine of the 15 first place votes in the NAIA poll and piled up 135 points for a solid margin over No. 2 Appalachian, N.C. Texas A&I, which had replaced Highland at the top the previous week, was beaten and fell to 11th. In the UPI poll the Cowboys, now 6-0 on the season, picked up four first place votes and moved into the third position behind San Diego and North Dakota State. HU was fifth last week. And in the AP balloting Highlands moved into the No. 4 spot after being in 6th last week.

This seems to be the standard first impression of our onything-but-standard Squareback Sedan, People just don't expect to see a sedan running cround with a small steamer trunk and 6 suitcases inside. Or a stack of water skis. Or 4 passengers and 2 TV consoles. It's more the sort of thing they'd expect of a sfa tion wagon. Which of course fits in perfectly with our plan. We designed the Squareback for people who sometimes wish they had a station wagon. Just by squaring off the part that goes to waste in most sedans. What we got wos over 40 cubic feet of storage space with the back seat folded down. Twice os much as conventional sedans. Not to mention the unconventional space up front. In the trunk. (The engine is where any respectable VW engine should be. In back. Underneath it all.) So after you finish sliding your dozen valises Info the back and a couple more into the front, just keep repeating: "It's a sedan. It's a sedan. It's a sedan . .
