The award will be presented to Knox, a 1954 graduate of Juniata, at the college's annual all- sports banquet Sunday evening, May 12. The banquet is being dedicated to Knox this year and he'll be the main speaker. Los Angeles posted a 12-2 record last fall in Knox's first sea. son as a head coach in the National Football League. He was named coach of the year by the AP, UPT, Pro Football Weekly, the Pro Football Writers Asso- elation and the Touchdown Club of Washington, D.C,, among others. The UPI story announcing the selection of Knox for its award noted that he had received 30 of the 39 votes cast by a panel of sportswrlters in NFL cities and also pointed out that he "could have a shot of matching Don Shula's record of 105 victories In his first decade as a head coach." In addition, the story pointed out that Shula, who guided Miami to back-to-back Super Bowl cha. mpionships during the past two years, won eight and lost six in his initial season. Knox was selected for Juniata's annual alumni achievement award by a committee of the Alumni Council. Last year's winner was Charles C. Ellis of the class of 1940, senior vice president for finance of RCA. As an undergraduate, Knox studied history and political science and maintained a "B" average. He weighed only 180 pounds, but was a starting tackle and co-captain of Juniata's first undefeated team in 1953. He stuck around for a year after his graduation, serving as an assistant coach under Bob Hicks. They led Juniata to an 8-0 record in 1954. Knox was an assistant football coach at Tyrone under John Chuckran in the mid-1950's. Juniata also had an outstanding team last fall. The Indians, now coached by Denison University graduate Walt Nadzak, had a 9-1 record in regularly scheduled competition and then defeated the University of Bridgeport 35-14 in the NCAA Division III Eastern Regional title game. However, they lost to Wltten- berg 41-0 in the Division II na- tlonal finals, the Amos Alonzo CENTRE TIRE \ : 3rd and Washington Ave. A^.W Ptone: 684-1352 / V NEW AND RETREAD SUMMER & WINTER PASSENGER AND TRUCK TIRES Delta - Uniroyal - Firestone TUNE-UPS AND MINOR REPAIRS STATE INSPECTION 4 Heavy Duty Shock Absorbers Installed •SO 00 Plus Tax Lifetime Guarantee Free Tire Inspection CHUCK KNOX Stagg Bowl at phenix City, Ala.

Schmidt resigned after the 1972 season, but the Lions didn't offer the head job to Knox and he headed west to Los Angeles. Rams' owner Carroll Rosenbloom later described how he had hired Knox. "We flew him (Knox) out from Detroit five different times and he convinced me more each time," Rosenbloom said. Rosenbloom said Knox kept insisting: "I can win for you." NBA Playoff Standings By United Press International Eastern Conference Playoffs Best-of-seven w. I. New York 3 3 Capital 3 3 Pistons Fore* Issue To Seventh Game By RICHARD L. SHOOK DETROIT (UPI) — Chicago is faced with the prospect of playing Saturday's deciding seventh playoff game with Detroit minus key guard Jerry Sloan. Nobody wants him and the other injured Bulls, Norm Van Lier, Clifford Ray and Bob Love, to be healthy more than Coach Ray Scott of the Pistons. Detroit forced the winner- advances match by riding the hot fourth-quarter shooting of Bob Lanier and George Trapp to a 92-88 sixth-game victory Thursday night over the Bulls. The victor in Saturday afternoon's nationally televised ' affair meets the Bucks in Milwaukee on Tuesday night in the start of the semifinal round of the National Basketball Association playoffs. In tonight's playoff action, the Capital Bullets are in New York to face the Knicks in the decidingg game of their best-ofseven series and Boston is at Buffalo holding a 3-2 lead in games over the Braves. Sloan, the Bulls' 6-foot-5 guard who has been hurting the Pistons with his rebounding and outside •shooting, suffered a ankle injury that may be severe enough to knock him out of the final game. It was so bad he couldn't walk to the shower after the game. He received the injury coming down with a rebound and apparently aggravated it during the fourth quarter. His running mate, Van Lier, spained an ankle but it did not appear bad from enough to prevent him from playing. Ray banged up a knee and Love, who only made two of his last 19 shots, suffered a bruised arm. Chicago has yet to win the deciding game of any playoff series it's been in but the two times the Bulls extended their opposition to seven games— against Los Angeles in 1970 and again last year, they were on the road for the final. Chicago had the game's high scorer Thursday night in Chet Walker with 33 points but the next highest for the Bulls was Love, who only had 14. 1974 Season Opening: Trout Fishermen Head For Pa. Waterways Sat. By DAVID A. MILNE United Press International Equipped with some of the most outlandish tackle and the most unlikely baits and lures imaginable, an estimated 850,000 trout fishermen head for Pennsylvania's waterways Sa • turday for the annual spring ritual known as Opening Day. The first day to trout season in Pennsylvania is more than just a date on the calendar. It is an event. A carnival - like happening. An outdoor attraction that defies explanation or understanding. Everyone knows a fisherman who, after battling the crowds, cold temperatures and high, muddy water so characteristic of Opening Day, swears he will not go out next year. Yet, the following Opening Day, he is there, fighting for elbow room and suffering through hours of tangled lines, leaky waders and uncooperative fish. Nowhere is Opening Day more of a circus than at Boiling Springs Lake, a six-acre impoundment in Cumberland County. Fishermen there shoulder-to- shoulder around the lake, hoping to find a spot to cast their lures or bait among the boats that carpet the water: Enterprising youngsters and businessmen work the road around the lake, hawking bait, coffee and sandwiches. It seems more like a baseball game than the quit sport of angling for trout. Fishermen will use all kinds of tackle in their persuit of the wiley trout. Some will use delicate bamboo rods costing hundreds of dollars. Others will make do with $1.95canepole. Two young boys fished the Yellow Breeches — a fabled stream in Cumberland County— last Opening Day by tying their line to a tree branch and then throwing a worm-baited hook in the water. When the branch wiggled, the boys would Jerk back on the line. More often than not, there was a fish on it. Much to the chagrin of other more well- equipped fishermen, each of the youngsters caught his limit of trout. The baits and lures Opening Day trout fisherman come up with sometimes defie the imagination. Some use corn, marshallows and even jelly beans, which could be an appropriate bait because Sunday is Easter. There's a story going around about two boys who were fishing for trout with jelly beans. The one sitting on the far bank of the stream was hauling fish in one after the other while the boy on the near bank wasfishless. "What color jelly bean are you using?" the unlucky angler called out. "Yellow," the other one replied. "Wouldn't you know it," his friend said.' 'That's the only color I don't have." But the serious trout fishermen will use worms, minnows and salmon eggs as bait or try to fool the trout with spinners. Experts say any one of these bounced along the bottom is deadly on Opening Day. Whether or not the fly fisherman will have a hatch to match on Opening Day depends on the weather and water temperature. But according to Ed Shenk, a noted fly fisherman from Carlisle, if conditions are right there could be a hatch of midges, Gordon Quills, Hendrick- sons, little dark caddisflies or little darkstoneflies. If there is no hatch, Shenk suggests using streamers, such as the Muddler Minnow, White or Black Marsbou and the Mickey Finn. Effective wet flies for opening day, Shenk said, include the Hare's Ear, Alder, Leadwing Coachman Md March Brown. Muskrat and Stoncfly nymphs work weU too, he said. The Pennsylvania Fish Commission prepared for opening day by stocking the 904 approved trout streams and 86 approved lakes or ponds with more than 2.5 million brook, rainbow, brown and palomino trout. The commission also plans to stock more than 2 million more trout before Memorial Day during Us in season stocking program. According to the Fish Commission, 23,676 acres of water will be stocked with trout this year. That means if there are 850,000 angles on opening day, there will be about 3Sfishermen per acre. In some streams, there may be more fishermen than fish. Help wanted. Every day of the year. The American Red Grots.
