You must Landry, the George Alien computer, the cheerleader, will match wits, strategics «n« philosophies Sunday when the Dallas Cowboy* battle the Washington Redskins in an Intriguing NFC title match. It would be difficult to find two pro football coaches with more contrasting personalities Landry of Dallas and of Washington. Landry than Allen watches the games stoically in top coat displaying and any hat, rarely nothing unpredictable about tbe emotion or changing the grim expression on his face, while Allen stalks the sidelines in a Redskin red windbreaker and constantly claps his hands and cheers his other play and occasionally players on. It's impossible to think of Landry standing in front of his team screaming "three cheers for the Cowboys" the way Allen leads his players in chants of containing the opposing offense. "three skins. cheers for the Red- But the two coaches have one key thing in common. They've both been successful and the winner of this pivotal match will advance to the Super Bowl in Los Angeles on Jan. 14 against the winner of " ' Miami-Pittsburgh game. the The __,_,- PLAY--Beaver County litres photographer ·~]Jarry Fry*'was just » second too soon on this' shot of the controversial pass play to Frenchy Fuqua last Sunday that ended up with Franco /^Harris scoring the winning touchdown to defeat 1 the Oakland Haiders, 13-7, and gain a berth in the AFG title game. This shot shows Jack Tatum about _ROMV/E ZAMORA-- to take Fuqua out of the play an'd at the same time Fuqua (32) is about to "touch the ball. The ball bounced to Harris and Tatum swears he did not touch it and Raider Coach John Madden sayg films show Tatum never touched the ball. Fuqua hasn't said anything. If Tatum had not touched the ball, Harris' TD would have been nullified! 28-AAAA By DARRELL MACK DM Sports Writer NEW ORLEANS (UPI). Oklahoma's Super Sooner; 'eaturlng the. explosive runninj of all-America Greg Pruitt am i defense anchored by cat-quick Luciou's Selmon, were 13-poin avorites over Penn State, the Jest team in the East, in the 39th annual Sugar Bowl Classii teams,Roiria twice by 18 and 13 points,; Sunday night. District Play Coming Up Sooners Favored Over Penn State make the Super Bowl for the third consecutive year while both Allen and his Redskins are making their first crack at it. The contrast in Landry and Allen extends to the way they build teams and the way they operate them on the field. Landry started from scratch with Dallas as an expansion team in 1960 and, backed by a computerized organization, built the Cowboys into a team that has made the playoffs for selven straight years. Allen, who runs the whole show in Washington, thinks of today instead of tomorrow and puts his team together immediately by trading draft choices Washington by using this counter this by keeping your method but last Sunday'» lt-J win over Green Bay was his first playoff triumph. Landry also uses an and defense that .. complicated that even some of! the Cowboys don't t«em to understand it. Allen, In c o n - trast, keeps things simple. The focal point in this game will be Washington's ability to stop the Dallas offense because there's * + 'Skins Redskin tffieitte. It consists ot what quarterback Billy Kilmer calls "Redskin football." That means he hands off to Larry Brown every need to fiad that this week or we'll be k troaMt," Washingtai teat Dallas ZM» in the first meetttig but won the aeewd 3444 Brown was sidelined with injuries and the Redskins had title. With Hie. Rams, Allen bad Cowboyi but the Skins and throws a pass to keep the defense honest. The Redskins depend on not making errors themselves, capitalizing on their opponent's mistakes and It's dull sometimes but it has worked. Containing Dallas should be more difficult now that Roger Staubach is back at quarter- tack. Landry played it coy during the week and waited until Thursday to announce Staubach would start but that decision was expected after Cowboys are attempting to Staubach led the Cowboys to :he dramatic win over San Francisco last week. It was such an exciting finish that even Landry broke into a smile. Staubach's scrambling adds another dimension to the Cowboy offense that they don't have with Craig Morton but it sometimes ieids to mistakes and that can be fatal against Washington. Staubach had the flu earlier in the week but was expected to be in good shape by ;ame time. Analyzing the Redskins, Land r y said, 'Washington is basically a vwy strong ball- control team and they play excellent defense. They worlt on the theory ot limited errors in a With Flu WASHINGTON (UPI)--The Washington Redskins added two more players to their flu list Saturday bringing to nine the team members victimized by a virus the day before the National Football Conference championship playoff against Dallas. : Defensive tackle Bill Brundige and kick return specialist Alvin Haymond were the latest to show flu symptoms. They joined seven others ordered by coach George Allen to wear medical masks while attending a team · strategy meeting Saturday. i ; The others were guard Pau Laaveg, tackle Terry Hermeling, safety Brig Owens, linebacker Harold McLinton, substitute running backs -Bob Brunei and Mike Hull and taxi squad member Jimmie Jones.

Asked if he felt friendship for Allen, the Cowboy coach replied laconically: have any real disagreements," He conceded that the Cowboys have played in inconsistent fashion this season, and; said I part of this may have stemmed I from the fact that Dallas won the Super Bowl last season.
