Walt Patulski and .Ed Swehd- son, both defensive ends from Motre Dame, are considered likely to see considerable ac- ion. Palulski is expected to get a starting job. while Swendson must oust three-year veteran Al Cowlings if he wants one. One of ihe most notable d i f - ferences in the Bills' Iraining camp at Niagara University is the attitude of quarterback Dennis Shaw :NFL rookie-ol-the- year in 1970 and a disappointment last season. Shaw, hampered much of last year with a sore throwing hand, seemed unhappy with Buffalo's continuous losing and showed it. "He has a whole new attitude this year." says a Bills' spokesman. "He really wants to play. He's really tossing the ball." Jim Harris, the first black quarterback lo start a regular season pro game, was a rer serve last year but managed to start two games.

(AP) -- The Dallas Cowboys made plans today to defend their Super Bowl championship without their inspirational leader, quarterback Roger Staubach, who underwent surgery Sunday for a shoulder separation and will be lost two or three months. Coach Tom Landry said, "The only problem we have is depth at quarterback." Second-string quarterback raig Morton filled in for Staubach Saturday night after the s e c o n d-quarter injury and threw three touchdown passes while completing 9 of 10 in a 2713 National Football League ex- libition victory over Los Anges. "Morton played a great game and is a great quarterback," said Landry. "Roger obviously .ook it as a tremendous blow. He was counting on having a ;real season. He ran three or Tour times in the first half, but t is .plays like that and his competitive nature that make him great." Staubach - could have stepped out of bounds, but instead, charged into Ram middle linebacker Marlin McKeever on the end of a 9-yard gain. Weiss Led Yankees, Mets Champion Builder Dies GREENWICH, Conn. (AP) -George Weiss, for more than 50 years a master builder of championship baseball teams, died Sunday. He was 78 and had been in ill health for some time. Virtually unknown to the general public, Weiss was the man behind the scenes who as general manager laid the groundwork for the phenomenal success of the New York Yankees and later the New York Mcts. He was inducted into baseball's Hall of Fame at Cooperstown, N.Y., a year ago this month for his achievements as club executive in developing championship teams in the minor and major leages from 1916 to 1966. He developed a minor league chain as Yankee farm manager under Ed Barrow, when the Yankee general manager, from 1932-19'17 before becoming general manager himself for a 13- year period, 1947-1960, d u r i n g which the Yankees won 20 pennants and seven World Series. He hired Casey Stengel to replace Bucky Harris as Yankee manager in 1949 and the two ran the Yankees until their mandatory retirement in 1960. A year later they were back in baseball as president and manager of the newly organized New York Mcts. Weiss and Stengel didn't win any pennants in their five years with the expansion National League club, but their building efforts paid off in 19C9 when the Mets astounded everyone by winning the NL pennant and then beating Baltimore in the World Series. Born in New Haven June 23, 1894, Weiss has been named four times the "major league Executive of The Year" by the Sedalia Takes Babe Ruth Title SEDALIA TAKES .1-18-2 FARGO, N.D. (AP) -- Sedalia.
