A Big Winner Thomas More Prep's Brian Drelling is declared the winner by referee Bob Moberly after pinning Eric Luders In the heavyweight, giving the Monarchs a 28-22 win over Pratt in a Mid-State League wrestling dual at the Field House Thursday night. The win for Dreiling was his fourth this season, and his third pin. IMP Matmen Win Winning the last four matches, the Thomas More : Prep Monarchs came from behind to down the Pratt Greenbacks in a Mid-State League wrestling dual at the Field House Thursday night. It was the first dual win for I the Monarchs who, dropped \ their season opener by one I point to the Larned Indians. ' The "Big Four" pulling the dual out for the Monarchs, who trailed after the first eight matches, 22-7, were Mark Schmidt, 155-pound class; Dale Schmidt, 167- pound class; and Brian Dreiling, heavyweight. Of the last four wins, three came on falls from Mark and Dale Schmidt and Dreiling. Dreiling and Mark Schmidt finished off their opponents in the first period, while Dale Schmidt took care of his in the second. Werth, who was leading 6-1, had quite a struggle to get by this man on an 8-5 decision. The only other wins scored by the Monarchs were decisions by Mike Hirch, 105- pound class; and Mark Schoenthaler, 126-pound class. For Schoendaler it was his first appearance of the season. With Paul Harvey losing by a decision in the 132-pound division, the only other un- Holtz Leaving New York Jets HEMPSTEAD, N.Y. (UPI) — Lou Holtz has had it with pro football and the New York Jets apparently have had it with college coaches. Holtz, throughly disappointed with pro coaching after just one season, Thursday resigned as head coach of the New York Jets and intends to return to the college game. His surprise announcement came only a day after he said he would honor the remaining four years of his contract and return next season. Al Ward, the Jets' general manager and the man who niust hire the next coach, indicated it probably will be a man with professional experience. The leading candidates appear to be Walt Michaels, the Jets' defensive coordinator, who twice has come under consideration for the job when it was vacant, and Bill Walsh, offensive coordinator with the San Diego Chargers, "I don't feel we've sacrificed a year," added Ward, who selected Holtz after a long search to initiate a rebuilding program. "How we develop depends on the man we bring in. We have 14 new men and we got a big changeover in older personnel so you can't really say this was a wasted year. Let's just say the coaching hunt is on again but it won't be as long as last time. The Jets, 3-10, will play their final game against Cincinnati Sunday under Mike Holovak, the club's director of personnel. Holtz said he had been pondering his decision to resign for nearly a month. "I feel my talents are best suited to college football," said the 39-year-old Holtz. "After talking to Mr. (Phil) Iselin and (General- manager) Al Ward Wednesday, I felt a commitment to the New York Jets and said I would stay But when I went home, I was not happy. I knew my future was not in pro football. When I.came in this morning ... I did a few things that I normally do and then told Al about my decision." "The New York Jets are a great organization and New York has been everything I've heard—a fantastic place," he added. "The city deserves a great coach and a lot of guys would give their right arm to coach here. But not Lou Holtz.... "There were some things in college football I didn't'think I'd miss this much. I just wish this could have ended on a positive note. If we had a winning record, I would have made this decision three weeks ago. It would have been a lot easier." deated Monarchs besides Schoendaler were Werth and Dreiling. Dreiling and Werth are 4-0. Three of Dreiling's four wins were on pins. In junior varsity, the Monarchs also had to come from behind. Winning it for them was freshman Gary Hoag who pinned Alvin Perez in the final match, giving TMP tWe win, 18-14. Next action for the Monarchs will be Saturday at the Osborne Invitational, while their next dual match will be Thursday night at Lyons.

The way for that—and even possibly interleague play- was cleared Thursday. "I think chances of success are quite good," said Commissioner Bowie Kuhn. American League President Lee Macphail added, "Obviously, from all this, we're trying to reach some solution. The leagues paved the way for the return of major league play to the nation's capital when they approved resolutions calling on the Orjoles to play a "suitable" number of games in Washington in 1978. Baseball has been under strong pressure to return to the city because Congress is threatening to take away the sport's unique exemption from the antitrust laws that it has enjoyed since 1922. If the Baltimore plan doesn't work, the National League said it would approve any application from an existing National League club to relocate in Washington. And if that doesn't work, the Nationaf League said it was willing to go still another step, a concession that would mean interleague play. That plan would be to create two 13-team major leagues and National League President Charles "Chub" Feeney said, "Then there would be a limited amount of interleague play. That's obvious." If major league baseball goes to two 13-team leagues, and that's possible, there would be interleague play on a limited basis rather than the scheduling of one team off each day to accommodate the two separate leagues. None of the moguls of baseball would reveal what the figure for a "suitable" number of games was. But Kuhn made it clear what Thursday's action was about. "The Congress is important, the committee is important and political considerations are important," the commissioner stated. In other action, Kuhn said baseball will continue not to permit performance bonuses and the National League still is balking at the use of a designated hitter although the vote is getting closer. The National League rejected the DII proposal 8-4 Thursday. Last year it was 9-3. Both leagues discussed going to three divisions by 1978 but nothing was settled. 1:12 •- Kevin I'lciler decisioned Mike Norton. 17-0. 13D - Murk Werlh was pinned by Jim Uuelen in Ihe second period. 145 N..I.

H«yi Sf ee/ers Hope To Sack Playoff Spot By HICK OOSSKUN UIM Sports Writer The Pittsburgh Steelers can climax the greatest comeback in their 43-year history Saturday with a victory over the 'Houston Oilers. The Steelers were nil but eliminated from the playoff picture this year when they Reds Eye Vida Blue LOS ANGELES (UPI) — The world champion -Cincinnati Reds, who lost free agent Don Gulletl to the New York Yankees, are interested in lefthander Vida Blue and they're prepared to include slugger Tony Perez in a package of players to the Oakland A's. As the winter baseball meetings drew to a close Thursday, A's owner Charlie Finley offered to sell his prize pitcher to the Boston Red Sox for $2 million but the Red Sox turned him down. The interleague trading deadline is midnight tonight. Another interleague trading period will open Feb. 15. dropped four of their first five games and lost all-pro quarterback Terry Bnulshnw to injury in that fifth game. But they regrouped behind rookie quarterback Mike Kruc/.ek and began playing the type of defense that captured the previous two Super Bowls for them, to win eight straight games. Pittsburgh heads into the final weekend of the season tied with Cincinnati arid Cleveland for first place in the AFC Central with 9-4 records and a victory over the Oilers will guarantee the Steelers the division's one playoff berth. Pittsburgh would enter postseason play because it has beaten Cincinnati twice this year and holds a scoring advantage over Cleveland, should the divisional race end in a two or three-way tie. The Bengals will advance into the playoffs only if they can beat the New York Jets and the Stcelcrs lose; and the Browns can claim their first playoff berth since 1972 only if they beat the Kansas City Chiefs and both Cincinnati and Pittsburgh lose. "We're going to do it," said Pittsburgh linebacker Andy Russell of his team's playoff chances. "We're a team of destiny. 1 actually looked at our schedule before the season started and thought we'd go 10-4. I said that would be a good season. But 1 never thought we'd go 1-4 first before we got there." In other games Saturday, Los Angeles is at Detroit and Minnesota visits Miami. Sunday it's Washington at Dallas, St. Louis at the New York Giants, Seattle at Philadelphia, Green Bay at Atlanta, San Francisco at New Orleans, Denver at Chicago, Buffalo nt Baltimore, New England nt Tampa Bay and San Diego at Oakland. St. Louis is tied with Washington for second place in the NFC East with 9-4 records and they are the only two teams still in the running for the conference's wild-card playoff berth.
