NFL Uses Electronic Brain' To Draw Up 62 49ers Get Rugged Inter-Conference Grid Opponents NEW YORK (UPH-The National Foolball League resorted to an "electronic brain" for drawing up Its 19G2 schedule and came with a few new twists for next season. For one thing, the Eastern Di vision's top three clubs of las year -- the New York Giants Philadelphia Eagles and Clcve land Browns -- will play one an other in an early round-robin dur Ing the first three weeks of the another, the Baltimore who traditionally have season. For Colts, wound up their season on the West Coast for the past nine years, will close al home in 1962 Commissioner Pete Rozelle an- tions. Bounced Tuesday that the 98- game, 14-week schedule will open on Sunday, Sept. 16, and run through Dec. 16. This is the same span as last season when the NFL expanded to 14 clubs. Saturday Night Game The schedule includes one Saturday night game, two nationally televised Saturday afternoon games from the West Coast late in the season and the annua Thanksgiving Day clash between the champion Green Bay Packers and Detroit Lions. As in past years, each team will play games against two clubs from the opposite division. And it appeared that the Browns, St. Louis Cardinals and San Francisco Forty-Niners drew the toughest inter-conference matchups. For years, the NFL schedule was made up by the commissioner and his aides, employing the trial and error methods of fitting together a jigsaw puzzle. The task was complicated by (lie availability of ballparks (10 of the 14 NFL teams share their park with a major league baseball club), cold weather in certain cities toward the end of the campaign, and the demands of work- GALLENKAMP'S BASEBALL SHOES 5th E Sh.

"One time we watched it com pule and list in printed form a dozen schedules in eight min utes," Rozelle continued. "We can't even type one in lhat time, and in the early stages of making a schedule it sometimes takes us days just to come up with one playable arrangement." The lone Saturday night game on the schedule pits the Eagles at Pittsburgh, Oct. 6.
