Nebraska Now 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 fol lowing 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 row seat in Room 101 at St. Thomas 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 16-year-old darling of the U.S. Open Tennis Championships wept modestly during a thunderous Sunday night welcome at Fort Lauderdale Airport. She showed up Monday morning—two weeks late—for school. Mail Carried Message "Home of Chris Evert," proclaimed the' 1 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 Iunchtime. It fed the 750 students with crumbs to spare. C/i Evert ing to third-ranked Texas and two each to No. 4 Michigan and No. 7 Auburn. Notre Dame received 829 total points. Rounding out the first five were Texas, 672; Michigan, 630, and Ohio State, 546. 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 change 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 16th to ninth, and idle Oklahoma, still 10th. 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 only other team to leave the Top Ten was Louisiana State, a 31-21 loser to Colorado, ninth last week and unranked this week. Georgia 11th Georgia heads the Second Ten, followed by Colorado, Stanford, Penn State, Syracuse, Arizona State, Southern Cal. Michigan State, South Carolina and Houston. Southern Cal is the only member of the Top Twenty to have lost its opener while Penn State, Syracuse and Arizon;: State haven't played yet. The others all won.

Devaney does a lot of talking when coaching his team. 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 na tional 14-and-under title. Chris Always Won "We've played tennis togeth er 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 handsome, young teacher, Greg McAndrews.. "We shall have to clue in Christine since she hasn'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 Chris) We want Chris!" chanted more than 1,000 well-wishers as lesser- known passengers deplaned , from' the southbound 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. Red-Hot Bucs In 5-1 Victory CHICAGO (AP) - Willie Stargell snapped a scoreless tie with his 45th home run of tire year in the seventh inning and Steve Blass fired a six-hitter as the Pittsburgh Pirates whipped the Chicago Cubs 5-1 Monday. After Stargell's shot, Milt Pappas, 17-13, retired the next two batters but was nicked for another run on a single by Milt May and a triple by Jack Hernandez. The Pirates put the game beyond reach in the eighth with a three-run splurge capped by Bob Robertson's two-run single. Blass, 14-8, was in trouble in the first two innings, giving up a walk and a single in each frame but two fine • defensive plays helped. Roberto CIcmente ended the first inning by going deep to right center for Ron Sanlo's fly and Ronnie Stennett ended the second with a leaping catch of Don Kessinger's line drive. The Cubs' lone run came in the ninth as Santo doubled and Johnny Callison singled.

The ABA will have 10 players available to be drafted, including four who were drafted by the rival National Basketball Association. Tom Payne of Kentucky and Cyril Baptiste of Creighton, two of the four, reportedly have signed NBA contracts, Payne with Atlanta and Baptiste with i the Golden State Warriors. Phil Chenier of California was chosen by Baltimore and Matt Williams of Utah State was picked by Cincinnati. The six others available include Mickey Davis of Duquesne, Ed Leftwich of North Carolina State, Mike Meade, Hartford, Allen Raphael, Northwestern, Anthony Reed, Murcer Community College, N.C., and John T. Bailey of Wagner. KANSAS CITY (AP) - Three teams gave notice, in their 1971 debuts, they plan to give Nebraska and Oklahoma a battle for the Big Eight Conference football championship this year. Most impressive was Colorado, which defeated ninth-ranked Louisiana State University 3121, butt 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 wept 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 important," 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 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 that penalties spoiled drives several times against Utah 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 half time." 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 Basler Voted Big Eight Lineman of Week KANSAS CITY (AP) - Kansas University's Phil Basler, 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 Independence, Mo., was the unanimous choice by the selecting panel after being credited with being in on seven tackles as KU notched its first shutout in 20 games. Basler recovered a fumble and nailed the quarterback behind 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 Piane 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 G-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 learn on defense, especially how to use his hands more. LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - University of Nebraska football Coach Bob Devaney predicted Monday his Comhuskers "will probably have to do a few things differently next week against Minnesota than in Saturday's 34-7 win over Oregon. "They play a different defense," lie 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 think 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 otherwise, the Husker injuries received against Oregon probably will be healed for Minnesota. Devaney praised his offensive line for its effort Saturday and said he didn't "know of many games where the offensive line 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, "I feel we could have thrown more than 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 quarterback Craig Curry "probably as good as our Jerry Tagge or Van Brownson."

Monday he was tired of being accused as the cause of alleged dissension of the Washington Senators. In a telephone call to Radio Station WWDC, which carries the Senators' games, the 27- year-old pitcher said he has not found any dissension on the club, but added that if there was any, it could have been caused by news stories quoting Tompkins p o o o o unidentified players. He specifically criticized Sun- clay stories by George Minot of the Washington Post and Russ While of the Washington Star. Minot wrote: "While the Washington baseball team's fu ture is being negotiated in the 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 his pitching the right-hander every five days instead of every four, as McLain says he would pre fer. White, in a feature on Wil liams, 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 Wil! liams, they listen because we're not doing loo well and everyone is looking for excuses." White also said several players have told Williams of the ill-will in the clubhouse. And, he said, at least one veteran player claims he has kept his distance when approached by McLain. Knicks Cut Hookies WEST LONG BRANCH, N.J. (AP) - The New York Knickerbockers of the National Basketball Association Monday cut a pair of rookies. The two players cut were Dan Davis, a 6-foot-10 center from Henderson State, Ark., and 6-8 Mike O'Brien of St. Leo's, Fla. "I'm just tired of being a scapegoat everylime 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."
