SPORTANGLES By Fred Mendell A game doesn't make a season, so it will be necessary to wait for a time to see whether Kansas' football team is as good as its -34 to 0 victory over Washington State woyld seem to indicate. Washington State was among leading candidates for poorest team in the country last year. It lost ten games, won only from Idaho. This year's Cougars were supposed to be greatly improved — but all teams having 1-10 records are supposed to be better the next year, but it is no certainty they will be. Cougars Couldn^t Win But They Did Score However poor Washington State may be, however, they have been a scoring team. They scored 31 points against Kansas last year and made two or more touchdowns against all rivals except California and UCLA. So -if Don Fambrough and the Jayhawks are a bit proud of that shutout, they have the right to be. Last year Kansas was dead last among all Big E i g h t teams in defense. As a matter of fact that K. U. defense sparkled oaly once or twice throughout the Pepper Rodgers coaching era. Don Fambrough said one of his goals was to tighten the defense. He has. Led by a converted quarterback, Phil Easier, the Jays gained their first shutout in 20 games. Easier led the Jayhawks with seven tackles. Twice he stopped the WSU passer behind the line for losses of 17 and eight yards, and he recovered a fumble to kill Washington State's first major drive. In all the Jayhawks allowed only 74 yards rushing, and currently they top the league in defense against scoring. Missed 'on Big Play Made the Big Mistakes The football family is feeling pretty low at Kansas State. Coach Vince Gibson perhaps said it best: "We couldn't make the big play when we had to, and we i^iade the big mistakes." Clipping penalties on punts were costly. So were intercepted and incomplete passes. It might help a little, however, if fans realized' that Utah State is definitely a good squad—and just might be great. Utah State was 5-5 last year. Among its triumphs were a 35-6 decision over Kentucky, a 42-29 victory over Wyoming, a 45-21 verdict against New Mexico State. Kansas State may have been guilty of underestimating the Aggies — a mistake they bet^ ter avoid in preparing for Tulsa. Eut certain it is Utah State can't be classified among the patsies. Fortunately for an opeaing game loser as well as the opening game winner, one game does not a season make. Ali Plans Foster Bout LA One Game Away By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS . .. And then there was one. One game separates them— and from now on, it'll be up to the rest of the National League West to decide whether the Los Angeles Dodgers or San Francisco Giants" wear the crown. Or maybe they'll still have to work it out themselves. They've had to do it before—twice in 20 years—and in each case the Giants have come out on top. But when these two teams collide, it's not just another game. "It was like a World Series (Hutchinson News-UPI Telephoto) GOLFING GREATS Jack Nicklaus, left, and Arnold Palmer check their score cards during practice round for the Ryder Cup matches with England which begin Thursday at Old Warson Country Club in St. Louis. In Women^s City Tourney Medalist Parker Wins First Match NEW YORK (AP) - Muhammad Ali was his old, talkative, irrepressible self Tuesday at a press conferencei called to announce his fight against Mac Foster of Fresno, Calif. Nov. 19 i in Tokyo. After promoter Yoshio Kou reveaied the details—Ali would get $5C0,0D0, Foster $150,000, tickets would be priced at $25 or $3 in the 14,000 seat arena and be is asking $2.5 million for th e w o I* 1 d-wide television rights—Ali took the spotlight. "He's not tha champion, he got whupped," he shouted, referring to his recent defeat at the hands of heavyweight champion Joe Frazier. "You can't brainwash me—he got whupped." For Foster, who has won 27 of hiff 28 pro fi^ts by knockout—the exception being a knockout defeat by Jerry Quarry-Ali said he has a new weapon, a "lingerer. '"It doesn't knock you out," Uie ex-champ explained. "It just dazes you-^and you linger."

Rookie Foils By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS The Oakland A's, playing it cool, can clinch the American League's West Division pennant tonight in owner Charles 0. Finley's backyard—Chicago. The A's had a chance to wrap it all up Tuesday night in Kansas City but the Royals used six innings of shutout relief pitching by rookie Monty Montgomery to delay the clinching, 2-0. There was no evidence of champagne or other celebration paraphernalia in the A's dressing room. Apparently, Finley had decided Kansas City would be no place to celebrate a title I for his A's, who fled that town for Oakland in 1968. The A's play a twi-night doubleheader against Chicago tonight and a sweep or a split combined with a KC loss against California would chnch the crown tor Finley, whose insurance company is headquartered in Chicago. Elsewhere Elsewhere in the American League Tuesday night, New York rapped Boston 6-3, Detroit belted Baltimore 6-1, Milwaukee trimmed Chicago 5-4, and Cleveland lopped Washington, 3-1 in the fu'st game of a doubleheader. The second game was suspended after 16 innings by a local curfew, tied at 5-5. Montgomery, making his major league debut, relieved Kansas City starter Paul Splittorff in the fourth inning after Splittorff was struck on the right kneecap by a line drive. The youngster, who had spent this season with Elmira in the Eastern League, permitted the A's just four hits and earned the victory. Diego Segui, 9-7, was locked' in a scoreless duel with young Montgomery until the seventh when Amps Otis led off with a single for KC. Steal For Otis Otis stole second—his 50th stolen base of the season, tops in the American League—and went to third when catcher Dave Duncan threw the ball into center field for an error. Then Joe Keough singled off first baseman Mike Epstein's glove, scoring Otis. An inning later, the A's had another run when Bobby Knoop siagled, moved up on Montgomery's sacrifice and scored on Freddie Patek's triple. That was enough to beat the A's and delay the celebration they weren' really planning to have in Kansas City anyway. It was a bad night all around for the A's. Their ace left-hand­ er Vida Blue, is now baseball's second winningest pitcher after Detroit's Mickey Lolich earned his 24th victory with a six-hitter against Baltimore. Lolich Wins 24th Lolich turned in his 25th complete game of the season and .increased his innings pitched total to a whopping 342—highest total in the majors since Robin Roberts pitched 347 innings in 1953. The Yankees crept to within one game of third place Boston in the AL East, beating the Red Sox behind Mel Stoltlemyre. Dave May cracked a three- run homer and doubled home the winner as Milwaukee shaded Chicago. Darrell Porter also homered for the Brewers, who roared from behind after the White Sox jumped off to a 4-0 lead against winner Bill Parsons, 13-15. 4- OAKLAND ab Campnrls ss 4 Rudi If RJackson rf Bando 3b Mangual cf Epstein lb Duncan c DGreen 2b Monday ph 4 • KANSAS CITY rhbl abrhbl 0 I 0 Putek ss 4 0 2 1 4 0 2 0 Vaidspino If 4 0 0 0 Anderson 2b 0 Segul p Garrett ph Locker p 0 0 0 Otis cf 0 0 0 Hopldhs lb 0 0 0 Sctiaal 3b 0 0 0 KoouBh rf 0 0 0 Klri<palrk c 0 6 0 Knoop 2b 0 I 0 Splittorff p 0 0 0 Pinlella ph 0 0 0 Mntsmry p OOO 000 4 110 2 0 0 0 ? 0 0 0 3 0 2 1 2 0 10 3 110 0 0 0 0 10 0 0 10 0 0 Total 31 0 4 0 Total 24 2 7 2 Oakland 000 Ooo ooo—o Kansas City 0 0 0 0 ( 0 I l x — 1 E—Knoop, Duncan.

A- 9,363. game," Los Angeles Manager Walter Alston said after his scrambling, clawing Dodgers won their eighth in a row and 13th in 15 games, stunning the Giants 6-5 on Manny Mota's three-run pinch double in the top of the ninth inning. It was also their eighth straight triumph this year over San Francisco and gave the hard-charging Dodgers the season series 12-6 against the Giants, who less than two weeks ago commanded what seemed to be an all-but-invulnerable 8'/:>-game margin before losing nine of 10. Not Discouraged "I wasn't discouraged," said the unemotional Alston, referring to the ninth inning, when the Dodgers came up trailing 53. "I've been around long enough to know you can't give up too soon." The, Dodgers didn't. They loaded the bases with nobody out on singles by Duke Sims, pinch-hitter Bull Sudakis and Maury Wills, setting up Mota's liner that sailed just inches over third baseman Alan Gallagher's glove, sending all three runners scurrying across the plate. The two-bagger obliterated the San Francisco lead built on Bobby Bonds' second home run of the game, a three-run blast in the seventh ihning coming only minutes after Chris Speier had hit a solo shot which started the rally. x Other Games In other National League games, Pittsburgh beat the Chicago Cubs 4-3 to open a 7'/2- game East lead over St. Louis, which lost 5-4 to Philadelphia, Atlanta rode Hank Aaron's two home runs to a 5-2 victory over Cincinnati, Montreal spit a doubleheader with the New York Mets, winning the opener 12-1 before losing 6-3, and San Diego topped Houston 5-2. "We threw everything we had at them," a downcast Giants Manager Charlie Fox muttered "We got five runs—you'd think we could get three outs in the ninth." They got them—one double and three runs too late. "Six inches lower and we might have had a triple play,' he said of Mota's liner. Then his gaze turning to a defiant glare, he added: "We're still one game ahead with 14 left to play. We're, not going to pack up and quit!" "Now we can start worrying about the Cards," Pittsburgh Manager Danny Murtaugh said after his Bucs beat the Cubs on Richie Hebner's ,t;^iple and a passed ball in the sixth inning, tagging 21-game winner Ferguson Jenkins with his 13th loss. Five Games "We've got five big games against St. Louis in the next eight," Murtaugh said, "and that's the way it should be—the two contenders going against each other." Rick Wise of the Phils helped win his own game at the plate, driving in two runs with a single in the five-run second in ning that flipped the Cards. Aaron's five runs batted in wifcli his 42nd and 43rd homers of the season moved him past Stan Musial into fourth place on the all-time RBI list with 1,953, just one behind the late Ty Cobb. He hit a three-run job in the first inning following singles by Felix Millan and|, Ralph Garr, then unloaded in' the fihh after winning pitcher Ron Reed bunted his way on base. It was the 53rd time Aaron has hit two or more homers in a game and gave him 635 career round trippers. Ron Fairly drove in five runs for the Expos in their opening game romo by Wayne Garrett and Ed Kranepool countered with homers in the nightcao for the Mets. Rusty Staub had one in each game for Montreal. Ed Acostat tamed the Astros on five hits and got all the runs he needed when the Padres struck for five in the fir.sl inning.

PB- Af ter Being Placed on Waivers Karras Lashes Out At Management By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Outspoken Alex Karras, who harassed opposing National Football League quarterbacks and running backs as a defensive tackle with the Detroit Lions since 1958, lashed out at the Detroit management Tuesday after the Lions placed him on waivers. Karras was the most familiar name on the waiver lists as NFL teams trimmed their rosters to the 40-man maximum decreed by the league. Alex Karras He was promptly claimed by George Allen of the-Washington Redskins. Karras said he would Hanging Out The Pro Football Wash NEW YORK (AP) - Hanging out the pro football wash: There's not much humor on the National Football League fields—but take those behemoths off the gridiron and put them in front of a microphone and you can come up with some pretty funny moments. Like at the Minnesota • Vikings' recent luncheon for about 1,000 of their fans, when quarterback Gary Cuozzo carefully analyzed his key block on a Denver player during a touchdown run by the Vikcs' Bob Grim: "The guy was running so fast I couldn't get out of his way." Or offensive tackle Ron Vary's clinical description of lis method of pa.s.s-blo(jkiiig: 'I've developed a technique where 1 fall in front of a guy," I'rtipare To Duck If you ask Sonny Jurgcn.scn what he thinks of the Orange Bowl, be prepared to duck. Sonny JII r gen sen Washington's sidelined quarto r b a c k has less-than-fond memories of the Miami Dolphin;?' home stadium. It was there that the key to the Ftcd- skins' attack broke his shoulder a few weeks ago, trying to tackle a Miami player who had Intercepted a puss. ) It wa.s Sonny's scwnd visit to I 'llhc Orange Bowl. The last time, nine years ago in the Playoff Bowl, he was quartcrbacking Philadelphia against Detroit, had a pass intercepted, tried for the tackle—and wound up with a shoulder separation. In The Rough Speaking of tiio Dolphins, Garo Yepremian does half his kicking at their home during the season and much of the rest of it is also done in relatively ideal conditions. But Miami Coach Don Shuia in.sists on preparing for any cvenluality~.so once a Week he sends Yepremian to a corner of the team's well-manicured training field, a spot with un­ dipped gra .sK, .sand and, on oc- cMsioti mud. Tii'jn;, (iaro pr.'iclico .s his speciality. "Helwceii the artificial turf in llie Orange Bowl and tlie perfect grass in camp, we'd be in lough ,sh ;ipe if Ganj had to kick .somewhere in the mud on a bad surface with a lot depending on his kick," Shula explains. "So wo give him a taste of the 'rough' once a week." Turnaboiit Some people complain that the presence of professional sports can wreak havoc on high .school ;ind college athletics—so the San Diego Chargers have taken a step in the other direction. They re^-cntly held a night workout at San Diego Stadium, inviting fans to attend for a $1 contribution, which wopid go to tt'e city's high school athletics program. The 10,820 spectators plus other donations mailed to the club—enriched the program's coffers by .$I7,?,37. let AUen know whether or not he would report to Washington today. "I cannot believe that the Lions' decision to place mo on waivers is based on a fair assessment of my performance on the field," the .IG-year-old Karras contended. "There are other factors hivolved. No Room for Opinions "Perhaps there is no room in the world of sports these days for an athlete who has an opinion on anything except his own sport," Karras said, before being claime<l l)y Washington. "1 have opinions. T think 1 am entitled to the same considerations as other human beings. That includes having the right to exprcs.s myself on .something other than playing defensive tackle," the f>-foot-2, 25(>-iK)under declared. Karras, suspended for the 19(13 season by Commissioner Pete llozelle for allegedly belting on football games, wa.s out for much of last year with a kneo injury, but says he is now 100 per cent. He is the latest in a long line of veterans oi)t;iincd by Allen In his efforts to bolster the Redskins. Another familiar name on the waiver lists was Tom Dcmpsey, the New Orleans Saints place kicker who booted the longest field goal in NFL history la.st sca.son, a (i.'i-yarder to defeat Iho Detroit Lions on the final play of Ihe giiiiie. Will Try Ag'iin Dcinp.sey, born willioul ;i riuhl hand and with only half a left fool, said lie would Irv to caleli on willi iiiiotlicr NFL club. "Sure, I'm discouraged and I'm hurt," lie declared. "But I've been down before ... and I've gotten back up. I know I can kick in this league and I'm going to." Other veterans to be trimmed included running backs Ernie Koy and I^es Shy, guard Larry Gagner and defensive back Otto Brown, by the New York Gants; running back Rocky Bleier, by the Pittsburgh Steel- crs; kicker Mark Moselcy and defensive end Don Brumm, by th© Philadelphia Eagles; defensive tackle Dan Goich and linebacker Marty Schottenheimer, by the Baltimore Colts, and tiglU end Pat Richler, by the Dallas Cowboys. Kansas City linebacker Chuck Hurston, placed on waivers Monday, was claimed by the Buffalo Bills. NEW YORK (AP) - As usual, Notre Dame is concerned with Who's No. 1? But right now, as the Fighting Irish prepare to open their season Saturday against Northwestern, it's not No. 1 in the country but No. I at quarterback. The answer probably won't be known until Friday. Senior Bill Etter, .junior Pat Steenberge and sophomore Cliff Brown shared the position in last weekend's scrimmage. The reason for the decision delay is that Etter has a hip pointer and Steenberg a hamstring pull. Whoever wins out will be expected to lead the Irish to a national championship. Anything else doesn't make the Notre Dame faithful very happy, since they don't belong to a conterence and don't have a league title to battle for. Tlie unnamed quarterback will be joined by most of the starters from last year's 10-1 squad which ended Texas' 30- game winning steak in the Cot- Ion Bowl and finished second in the national rankings. The Irish are still second, although they led the preseason poll only to be passed by Nebraska, which opened, impressively last weekend. They shouldn't drop any lower, even though Northwestern outplayed Michigan during ine first half of its early opener but came away a 21-6 loser. Only one Northwestern coach has had Notre Dame's number, beating the Irish four in a row from 1959-62. His name was Ara Parscghian and. he now coaches at . . . NOTRE DAME. Texas at UCLA-i[ VCLA was looking past Pitt a week ago, the object of their attention was Texas. The Longhorns pulled out last year's thriller 20-17 on a miraculous 45-yard pass with 02 seconds left.
