(AP) -- "Lis- ·Cen, kid," says the persuasive -recruiter, "you play football rwllh us and you get it all . . . tuition, board, room, books, $15 'a month and laundry." ". - "Everybody's offering that," replies the schoolboy cooly. "Yeah," says the recruiter, "but this laundry clears $700 a month." Another kid appears unannounced in the coach's office, says he's 6-6, 240, and wants to play football at Bedrock U. "Can you run?" "Like the wind." "Can you block?" "Like a bulldozer." "Can you tackle?" "Like a gorilla." "Well," says the coach excitedly, "you got any weaknesses?" "Yeah," says the kid, "I lie a lot." ., Recruiting yarns, like fish tales and Aggie jokes, are not u n c o m m o n among football coaches, who vow that all's fair in love, war and the pursuit of schoolboy talent. It Is told as fact that a Bay , kr coach once happened upon a young warrior seated in a car belonging to a TCU recruiter, who was away for the moment, He climbed in, locked the door arid offered his pitch while the TCU coach, returning, poundec frantically on the window. "Recruiting," says TCU's youthful mentor, Billy Tohill "is the rnost competitive par of/the -job of coaching. There' a'-lot of things that happen in recruiting that don't normally happen !n everyday life." He wjjs not eager to disclos. specifics, but ad-Jed: "Until you do it for a year o two well . , . there's things tha happen to you that yo wouldn't believe. And some o the things you have to do yo wouldn't believe."

Sooner fans labeled it a lassie recruiting coup. Texans ailed it piracy.. 'Recruiting is the most fasci- ating business of all," says e x a s Tech's football czar, much more fascinating than caching football. "You're dealing with a hu- nan being and you're Irying to ecruit him* and you've got his mother and daddy, who are more interested in hirh than nything else in their lives, and ou're Irying to sell them that ou're the best place for him to ome, and there's at least eight ther coaches doing the same hing.

The Americans defeated Ipain 3-2 Monday in an emotion-packed series in Barcelona, where they said .the noisy crowd was a problem and hurt their play. U.S. team captain Dennis Ralston declined to predict how he Americans would fare against the Romanians and Wimbledon finalist Hie Nastase, 3ut he said he expected trouble from the crowd. "In Romania, the crowd is going to : be like this (Barce- ona) and the linesmen will be difficult as well," Ralston said after the 1972 Wimbledon champion, Stan Smith of Pasadena, Calif., clinched the best-of-five series by outlasting Spain's Juan Gisbert 11-9, 10-8, 6-4. The No. 1 U.S. player beat the stubborn Gisbert despite trouble with his service and a series of errors. But his victory after Spain had evened the series 2-2 on Andres Gimeno's 6-3, 5-1, 2-6, 62 triumph over Harold Solomon of Silver Spring, Md.,' moved the U.S. into the finals against Romania, 4-1 winners over Australia at Bucharest. Ralston said the U.S. team would not play the Challenge Bound until late October because of other commitments. The Americans leave for the Mathews is convinced "we have a better ball club than we've shown, and these guys can do it." The new Atlanta Braves manager admitted he was nervous in his debut as a major league manager Monday night as the Cincinnati Reds bombed him 91 on national television. "I guess it's as good a way to break in as any," said the former Braves third baseman appointed to replace Lumen Harris, who was fired. "I had the normal emotions. Sure I was nervous', it's like the kickoff at a football game." It was two former' Atlanta teammates who did him in. | Denis Menke and Joe Morgan who batted in eight of the Reds nine runs-between mem. Morgan hit a three-run liomer, his 14th of the season, and Menke got two more with a single in the six-run second inning for the Reds, and Mathews had to lift his first pitcher, Ron Red--9 11. In the only other National League game Monday night, the St. Louis Cardinals defeated the New York, Mets 3-2 in 13 innings. Pittsburgh's afternoon game at Montreal Was rained out. . · In the American League, Minnesota beat Texas 5-0, Baltimore whipped Milwaukee 5-2, Kansas City clipped Oakland 42 and Cleveland turned back Boston 6-2. The Reds increased their lead to 5% games with the Houston Astros off Monday. Menke batted in three more runs with his sixth'home run of the year in the sixth inning. The Braves managed to break Jim McGlolhlin's shutout in the eighth inning on back-lo-back errors by Darrel Chaney and Menke. McGlothlin, who had not started since July 15. was in- serted to replace the ailing Gary Nolan. Nolan complained of muscle spasms. Ted Sizemore's looping leadoff hit in the 13th inning bounced past diving left fielder Cleon Jones for an insidc-the-park home rim that gave the Cards their victory and dropped the Mets 8V4 games back of front- running Pittsburgh in the 'East Division. It came just one day after Sizemore had tried for an Inside-the-park homer against Philadelphia only lo be trapped in a rundown between h o m e and third. "I couldn't'believe it was happening again," he mused. This time, though, there was no close call. He virtually trotted across the plate.

KANSAS CITY (AP) -- Coach Sob Devaney said Monday it "would be a great thought" to think the 1972 Nebraska football Learn could b e ' a s good as last season's No. 1-ranked Corn- huskers. "At this .stage," Devaney said, "You couldn't predict that." Devaney made his remarks during a news conference that followed the annual football kickoff luncheon of the Big Eight Conference. O t h e r coaches, however, quickly put the finger on Nebraska as the team to beat along with the Oklahoma Soon- ers, who finished second in the national rankings, and Colorado, which rated No. 3. Two head coaches, Chuck Fairbanks of Oklahoma and Eddie Crowder of Colorado, were not present. Barry Switzcr. one of Fair banks' assistants, said, "We're gonna win 'em next season." After a slight pause, he ad ded: "I want to retract that statement." Switzer asserted the Sooners biggest problem is the loss o! quarterback Jack Mildren. who was the key to Oklahoma'. 1 devastating Wishbone attack. Dan Slavely, Crowder's pinch hitter and freshman coach a Colorado, admitted the Buff: "expect to have a good team We've got some real gooc horses, and , they're running good." Devaney, who will retire from coaching after this season ti duli'c: wa :haracteristically conservative. "We got off the winning ·treak a couple of weeks ago at Chicago," he quipped. Devaney coached the College All-Stars in their losing effort against Ihe Dallas Cowboys of he National Football League. "We have some question marks." Devaney said. "Our offense depends on how our new quarterback, David Humm, responds. We have problems in the offensive line. We have a ;ood, sound defense." Coach Johnny Majors of Iowa State, whose team finished fourth in the conference, said, "We had a good football team last year but we're a long way 'rom the penthouse yet." Kansas coach Don Fambrough drew a roar of laughter when he reflected on the Jayhawks' 55-0 loss to Nebraska in 1971.
