Nebraska Noiv No. 1 Huskers Bury Irish In Poll By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Nebraska's defending national champions climbed back atop The Associated Press college football poll Monday following an impressive opening game victory while Notre Dame, the preason leader, was idle and fell to second place. The Comhuskers of Nebraska trimmed highly regarded Oregon 34-7 Saturday and received 31 first-place votes and 931 points from a nationwide panel of sports writers and broadcasters participating in the first regular season poll. Irish Meet Wildcats The Fighting Irish of Notre Dame, who open against Northwestern this weekend, pulled down 10 top votes, with five go- Chrissie Comes Home FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) — Chrissie Evert slid slowly into her second rou^ seat in Room 101 at St. ITiomas Aquinas High School ... a long way from center court at Forest Hills. "It was super up there, you guys," she told a covey of giggling 11th grade girls. "Nothing tops getting home, though . . . being recognized by folks I live with." The IG-year-oid darling of the U.S. Open Tennis Championships wept modestly during a thunderous Sunday night v^el- come at Fort Lauderdale Airport. She showed up Monday morning—two weeks late-—for school. Mail Carried Message "Home of Chris Evert," proclaimed the' plywood billboard outside St. Thomas. Father Vincent Kelly, the principal, used a rubber stamp bearing the same boast on all school mail. Chrissie wore a green plaid skirt and white blouse, uniform of the Catholic high school. Her long hair was draped over one shoulder. "They love her," said Father Kelly. "The other students, our faculty . . . right down to the custodian, we're pretty proud." School cafeteria cooks baked a gigantic cake, served in Miss Evert's honor at lunchtime. It fed the 750 students with crumbs to spare. Chris Evert The adulation couldn't have been more sincere if Chris had beaten old pro Billy Jean King in the semifinals at Forest Hills Friday. The kid from Fort Lauderdale had become an instant international heroine. Sister Jean Marion, frocked in white habit, smiled at her new homeroom student. "I had your older brother, Drew, last year. He was a nice boy," she said. Drew, 18, was down the hall in his senior homeroom. One of Chrissie's sisters, Jeanne, 14, is a freshman and a budding tennis sensation who holds the national 14-and-under title. Chris Always Won "We've played tennis together all our lives," said dark- haired Laurie Fleming. "Chrissie always beats me ... but next to me, I'd rather see her as the world's finest player." After 10 minutes, the first period bell rang and Chrissie scurried down an outdoor hallway to Room 127. Her first subject was Contemporary Religion. "Please turn to page 10 in your textbooks," asked the iiandsome, young teacher, Greg McAndrews. "We shall have to clue in Christine since she't been with us." Greetings for Miss Evert on her first day back at school were subdued compared to the sign-waving, band-playing airport reception the night before. "We want ChrisI Wo want Chris!" chanted more than l,000 well-wishers as lesser- known passengers deplaned from the sou|^hbound jet, "She's No. 1. She's No. 1." Signs, waved with the furor seen at a political convention, read "You're Our Champ" . . . "Billy Jean Who?" .. . "The Best at Sweet 16." "It's the biggest deal since Lyndon Johnson flew in here,' an airport security guard said. ing to third-ranked Texas and two each to No. 4 Michigan and No. 7 Auburn. Notre Dame re- I ceived 829 total points. Rounding out the first five were Texas, 672; Michigan, 630, and Ohio State, .')4fi. Texas opens Saturday against UCLA while Michigan downed Northwestern 21-6. Ohio State buried Iowa 52-21 and jumped from 11th to fifth, the only chan.qe among the five leaders. The rest of the Top Ten consisted of Arkanas, up from seventh to sixth; Auburn, which hasn't played yet, down from sixth to seventh; idle Tennessee, still eighth; Alabama, up from ]6lh to ninth, and idle Oklahoma, still lOfh. Arkansas crushed California 51-20 and Alabama turned back Southern California 17-10. The latter game dropped the losing Trojans from fifth all the way to 17th.

The Cubs' lone run came in the ninth as Santo doubUid and Johnny Callison singled.

Bailey of Wagner. LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - University of Nebraska football Coach Bob Devaney predicted Monday his Cornhuskers "will probably have to do a few tilings differently next week against Minnesota than in Saturday's 34-7 win over Oregon. "They iilay a different defense," he said of the Gophers. Minnesota was 28-0 victor over Indiana while Nebraska was whipping Oregon in what Devaney termed "as good an opening game as we have played since I've been at Nebraska." Devaney's observation came in a talk to the weekly Extra-Point Club luncheon. A warning note about Minnesota was sounded by NU freshman Coach Jim Ross. Although Ross said he "wasn't too impressed with Indiana, I was with Minnesota. "If we play as fine this week as we did against Oregon, we'll win," said Ross, "but if we Ihink we can coast through, we might find ourselves in a lot of trouble." Devaney said linebacker Bill Sloey, who injured a knee against the Ducks, "will be of questionable value for the rest of the season." Sloey's injury might need an operation, said Davaney, but othei'wise, the Husker injuries received against Oregon probably will be healed for Minnesota. Devaney praised hi,s offensive line for its effort Saturday and said he didn't "know of many games where the offensive lino gave better protection." He said he feels "Oregon can be good, but that question will have to wait a week or two" until the Ducks face other opponents. May Pass More Although the Huskers' ball- control offense provided enough yards and points Saturday, Devaney told his audience, feel we could have thrown more tlian we did." Ross said the Huskers would see "a little different Minnesota team than in the past." He said the Gophers usually have good defensive teams, but said their offense appears to be strong. He called quartei-back Craig Curry "probably as good as our Jerry Tagge or Van Brownson." Blasfs SporLswrilers WcLain Denies Dissension 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 WASHINGTON (AP) - Coii-isonable fellow. The younger troversial Denny McLain said guys still look up to him as a Monday he was tired of being accuscHi as the cause of alleged dissension of tlie Washington Senators. In a loiophone call to Radio Slatioii WWDC, which carries the Senators' games, the 27- year-old pitcher said he has not found any dissension on the club, hut ad(ic <l that if there was any, it could have been caused hy news stories quoting Tompkins p 0 u 0 0 imidenl il 'lcd players. He specifically critici7 /ed Sunday stories by George Minot of the Washington Post and Russ White of tho Washington Star. Minot wrote: "Wliilc the Washington baseball team's future is being negotiated in tho halls of finance, on the field and in the clubhouse there is growing dissatisfaction among the players." Differences With Ted? The Post writer told of McLain's differences with manager Ted Williams over I'is pitching tjie right-hander every five days instead of every four, as McLain says he would prefer. While, in a feature on Williams, quoted an unidentified player as saying: "The trouble is Denny remains a very per­ former 31-game winner, and when he talks to them, especially when he bad-mouths Willliams, they listen because we're not doing loo well and everyone is looking for excuses." While also said several players have told Williams of Uic ill-will in the clubhouse. And, he said, at least one veteran player claims ho has kept his distance when approached by McLain.

The two players cut were Dan Davis, a 6-foot-lO center from Henderson State, Ark,, and 6-8 Mike O'Brien of St, Leo's, Fla. "I'm tired of being scapegoat everytime something pops up," said McLain in a prepared statement he read over the air. "I've had my differences of opinion with Ted Williams and those differences for the most part have stayed between Ted and me. "He could make things very difficult for me," he said, "And after last year, I don't need any more difficulties," 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 135-W League All Games W L W L Pts.

Most impressive was Colorado, which defeated ninth-ranked Louisiana State University 3121, bu)t those attending the Big Eight briefing Monday still talked about Kansas, which shutout Washington State 34-0, and Oklahoma State, which dumped Mississippi State 26-7. Nebraska, as expected, rolled over Oregon 34-7. Oklahoma and Iowa State did not play. Can Cause Trouble And even though Kansas State was edged by Utah State 10-7 and Missouri went down to Stanford 19-0, there is reason to think they'll cause trouble. Asked, on a long distance call, if he thought Colorado was underrated or if Louisiana State was overrated, Buffalo Coach Eddie Crowder replied, "A little of both," adding he thought his team developed quicker than expected. Crowder said the difference between the teams was the fact that CU made the big play, both on offense and defense. Kansas Coach Don Fam- bgough said the Jayhawk victory gave his team "the confidence is needs," especially on defense. "Winning that first one is awfully unportant," said Fambrough, who was initiated as a head coach. "It showed our players the importance of hard work," Oklahoma State's Floyd Gass probably couldn't savor the Cowboys triumph too long because 'he had too prepare for next week's opponent — Arkansas, a 51-20 victor over California. Kansas State Coach Vince Gibson said that he was encouraged by his defensive team's I play, particularly that of linebacker Keith Best. Highest Grade Possible Gibson said Best got the highest grade given by KSU coaches to a linebacker — 93. "We think a 70 is a winner," Gibson said. He said the Wildcats must open up on offense and cut down on mistakes, pointing out spoiled drives against Utah that penalties several times State. Missouri Coach Al Onofrio, the other new Big Eight head coach, took much of the blame on himself for the Tigers' setback. "Our players lacked the quickness they had," he said. "I may have worked them too hard. That may have been my mistake." Defense Not Expected He said another factor was that Stanford was using a different defense and Missouri may have stuck with the original game plan too long. "It may have been a miscalculation on my part," Onofrio said. "But at Missouri, we usually don't make too many changes until halftime." Beside the OSU at Arkansas other contests scheduled Saturday include: Kansas State at Tulsa, Baylor at Kansas, Wyoming at Colorado, Missouri at Air Force, Minnesota at Nebraska, Southern Methodist at Oklahoma and Idaho at Iowa State. Former Quarterback Kansas' Phil Easier Voted Big Eight Lineman of Week KANSAS CITY (AP) - Kansas University's Phil Easier, a defensive tackle who came in from the cold at quarterback, was named Monday as the Big Eight Conference Lineman of the Week for his play in the Jayhawks' 34-0 victory over Washington State University last Saturday. The senior from Irjdepen- dence. Mo., was the unanimous choice by the selecting panel after being credited with being in on seven tackles as KU notched its fh-st shutout in 20 games. Basler recovered a fumble and nailed the quarterback behmd the line twice, once for a 17-yard loss. Kansas Coach Don Fambrough said Basler, who started at quarterback in five games as a sophomore, led the pass rush that caused Cougar quarterback Ty Plane to complete only 14 of 40 passes and have three intercepted. Rather than being upset about being changed from a southpaw quarterback to a defensive tackle, the &-foot-3, 225^ pound Basler said he wished he had made the move earlier. "I'll still be learning throughout the season," he said. Basler, 21, said he has a lot of things to leam on defense, especially how to use his hands more.
