SPORTANGLES By Fred Mendell Asuburban Chicago woman Mrs. Doris Laurini, has started a class which she says will help widows happily join their husbands. The reference was to football widows, with husbands who spend hours and hours either at football games, or watching them on TV. Her goal is to explain the game of football in such detail that women will want to join their husbands at the games or in front of TV. This I consider, an excellent solution to a national problem — if it will work. I'm not sure it will, since there are a lot of gals who know the basics of football but still aren't the least bit interested. But, I'll put it this way; Football is here to stay. Men, stubborn creatures that they are, will figure some way to thwart the woman who would pull th;m away from "the game." So the w o m a n who wants to be with her man on a Sunday afternoon will have to watch football and she may as well Icarn to enjoy it. Confusion in football starts with the name. It isn't a ball, at all. It is a prolate spheroid, an ellipsoid. Foot-ellipsoid is awkward and i'oot-prolate-spheroid sounds like something that should require amputation so they call it football. A Little Knowledge Goes A Long Way The girls need not know the terminology of football to enjoy it. They shoud, however, know this is another confrontation of the forces of good and evil. Football is warfare without shooting arms on a field 100 yards in length and 53M> yards wide.

(AP) — Cliff Branch raced 59 yards with a punt return for Colorado's first score and grabbed a 20-yard pass deep in the end zone for another to spark the sixth-ranked Buffs to a 31-21 victory over Kansas State Saturday in the Big Eight opener for both teams. Kansas State bounced back from Branch's first score, capitalizing on a Buff fumble at the CU 20-yard line with 7:07 left in the first period.

Sports Results CU turned a fumble into a score of its own early in the second period when linebacker Randy Geist pounced on the ball at the Wildcat 19. The Buffs hit the scoreboard on tailback Charlie Davis' plunge from one foot out. Wildcat quarterback Dennis Morrison moved his team to two third period scores and a brief 21-17 lead. He scored on a keeper around the left side from 12 yards out for the first, then hit flanker Fred Merrill on a 16-yard pass for the second. J.B. Dean's 34-yard field goal and Branch's TD catch with two seconds left accounted for CU's third period scoring. Willie Nichols hauled in a 23- yard scoring pass from quarterback Ken Johnson midway through the fourth period to pad the Buffs' lead to the final margin. Scoring Boulder Colo.

There armies merely win or lose ground, men and equipment. At the peace conference winners in war demand booty — land', gems, treasure, gold, women, cattle, horses. Football teams also lose or win ground, and lose men and equipment. They fight, initially for points which can be made only with touchdowns or field goals. But forget that part. The important thing is that if they get enough points in each game, they can be cashed for big write- ups, time on TV, conference championships, high national ratings, All-America selections, trophies and women who don't know what the game is all about. It's Not How But Why They Play So, first, pick your school team and three or four different pro teams. Be aware that the teams of your selection are totally unlike those it opposes. Your teams have offensive units of fine runners, good passers, sure-footed kickers, and all-American type linesmen who can knock holes in the opposition line, protect your passer, and halt the evil-doers on the other team. It is made up of stalwart young men, the very back-bone of America. The other team is made up of black-hearted fellows hired from all over the country by the opposing coach and his staff and selected on the basis of size and pure meanness. In order to get points the other team will push your fellows faces in mud. It advances the ball by stealth and deceit, and frequently gets by with jumping offsides, grabbing face masks, jabbing elbows, piling on and other illegal ploys. It wants that booty and doesn't care how it gets it. Your boys rarely do any of those naughty things and always get caught and punished if any player so much as looks cross-eyed at an official. Your boys are out there to protect the American way, motherhood, women who don't know what the game is all about, honesty, integri ty and the coaches job. All that other team wants is publicity, championships, national ratings, etc. Now you know basics behind football. Any questions?

After four weeks of football, the Falcons are tied for the league lead with Haven and have a 4-0 overall record. When the season started, few people expected Fairfield to be where it is in the MKL today. The Falcons started the year with only five senior lettermen. At the beginning of the season Coach Don Stucky felt that the team would lack from experience. "Our team will basically be a junior team." Defense is the Falcon's long suit. In four games, the Falcons defense lias allowed only 92 yards total rushing and only one touchdown. Although young and inexperienced, Fairfield's line is big. Mark Locke, 230-pound senior tackle and Mike McKinney, 200- pound junior tackle are proof of that. While nothing flashy, t h e Falcons offense has come through with enough points to win. Heading the offense is Dick Drake, 160-pound junior quarterback. John Stucky, 190-pound junior fullback; Jim Strong, 175- pound senior halfback and Farrol Brown, 160-pound senior halfback round out the b a c k- field. Coach Stucky says, "Even though we're winning, we are still working to get the offense in tip-top shape. Remember, we haven't faced the tough ones yet." The "tough ones" he was talking about are Moundridge, Buhler and Haven. Moundridge and Buhler are in a two-way tie for second with 2-1 marks in MKL play, and 3-1 overall marks. Although the season is only four weeks old, Fairfield has already beat its league record of last year. In 1970 the Falcons won only two league games and four games overall. "The boys feel pretty good about winning this year and we hope to give it (the title) a shot." What ever the outcome, this season could be one of Fairfield's best.

Duke Upsets Indians, 9-3 STANFORD, Calif. (AP) — Duke's Ernie Jackson picked off a Don Bunce pass and raced 54 yards for the only touchdown as the Blue Devils surprised lOth-ranked Stanford 9-3 Saturday in a defensive intersectional football game before 61,000. Jackson's big play came only five minutes into the game and Dave Wright's conversion attempt was blocked. But Duke had enough points to register its fourth straight victory without defeat. The Blue Devils were 16-point underdogs. The loss was Stanford's first in four games. Duke extended its lead to 9-0 in the third quarter when Wright connected on a 21-yard field goal. Stanford got inside the Duke 20-yard line twice,, but was unable to cross the goal line. The only points for the Rose Bowl champions came on a 32- yard field goal by Rod Garcia in the fourth quarter. Drake Slaps Big Sky Foe FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. (AP) — Taking advantage of two pass interceptions, Drake University broke open a close game in the fourth quarter to defeat Northern Arizona University 38-13 in a designate Big Sky Conference contest Saturday. Drake quarterback Dennis Redmond riddled the NAU pass defense for 21 passes and 265 yards to hand the Lumberjacks their 12th straight loss. The junior quarterback for the Bulldogs broke open a 17-13 game early in the fourth period with a double reverse pass play good for 89 yards and a touch-) down. Redmond handed off to tailback Steve Scullen who then gave the ball to flanker Rex- Perry who found split end Doug Winslow wide open at midfield for the score.

(AP)-Fleet halfback Greg Pruitt stole the spotlight with his daring running as eighth-ranked Oklahoma's super-charged wishbone-T offense—staying almost exclusively on the ground- crumpled Southern California 33-20 in an action-packed intersectional football battle here Saturday afternoon. Pruitt scored three touchdowns on runs of 38, 75 and seven yards. On two of those runs, the 5-foot-9 halfback from Houston, Tex., slowed down near the goal line to give his foes a chance to catch up with him—only to turn on the speed at the last moment. • • • Scoring USC 7 7 0 6—20 OU 13 6 14 0-33 Okla-Wylle 1 run (kick failed) USC—Garrison 14 pass from Jones (Rae kick) Okla-Prultt 42 run (Carroll kick) USC—Cunningham 4 run (Rae kick) Okla—Pruitt 7 run (run failed) Okla-Prultt 75 run (Carroll kick) Okla-Mlldren 11 run (Carroll kick) USC—Bella 12 pass from Rae (run failed) A-62,000. , Quarterback Jack Mildren produced two touchdowns in the romp and halfback Joe Wylie added another as the Sooners broke the game open with 14 points in the third quarter. Southern Cal led twice in a see-saw first half, scoring on a 16-yard pass from quarterback Jimmy Jones to split end Ede- sel Garrison and a three-hard plunge by fullback Sam Cunningham. But the Trojans just couldn't stop Oklahoma's heralded running attack, featuring the outside scampers of Pruitt and Wylie, the power running of fullback Leon Crosswhite and the ball handling magic Mildren. OU, leading only 19-14 at the half, chalked up two scores in the final six minutes of the third quarter to ice the game. Pruitt raced 75 yards on the first play after a USC drive faltered on the Oklahoma 42, only of,one of the two times the Trojans got that deep into Oklahoma territory in the second; half. Pruitt took off around left end, then cut back across the green. He slowed down at about the 10, looked back at a horde of Trojans trailing him, and then dashed in.

Hutchinson was plagued b y wet and muddy field conditions in its last two games, but the weather was perfect Saturday. The Salt Hawk passing game, stalled by the inclement weather, was out in the open against Winfield and Hutchinson racked up 175 yards pass­ ing and scored three of its five touchdowns through the air. Added to the aerial attack were 248 rushing yards to complete the balanced offensive game Hutchinson took to the Vikings. The Hutchinson defense was outstanding as well, allowing the Vikings only 98 total yards, 55 on the ground and 43 through the air. Evidence of the defensive prowess was the fact that Hutchinson's leading tacklers were the linemen. Linebacker Bill Landman led the assault with 20 tackles, 12 of them unassisted while Don Grossardt, a 170 lb. tackle, had 19 tackles, ten of them unassisted.

Four-Year Famine Manchester United Scores 2-0 Victory LONDON (AP) — Late goals by George Best and Allan Bowling led Manchester United to a 2-0 triumph Saturday that snapped Sheffield United's 10- game unbeaten streak in the English Soccer League. Sheffield remained atop Division 1 with 18 points from 11 games, Manchester United is second with 17 points and Derby County, which defeated Newcastle 1-0, has 16. Mike Summerbee's two goals paced Manchester City over West Bromwich 2-0 and Arsenal, defending English champion, edged Southampton 1-0 in Peter Simpson's tally.

(AP) — The Minnesota Gophers, bringing the Big Eight's four- year domination of Big Ten football teams to a sudden end, battered the Kansas Jayhawks 38-20 Saturday with an awesome rushing attack engineered by quarterback Craig Curry. Curry picked up 107 yards in 15 carries, ran for touchdowns of 4 and 17 yards and passed for 29 yards to George Honza for a third touchdown. The senior quarterback, who completed 9-12 passes for 115 yards, also set up the two other touchdowns—a three-yard run by Ernie Cook and a two-yard drive by Jim Henry. Kansas fullback Steve Conley leaped into the end zone from one yard out in the first period, blasted 26 yards in the third and ran in from one yard out late in the fourth period for the Jayhawks. Mel Anderson of the Gophers was five for five on conversion kicks and added a 35-yard field goal as Minnesota evened its record at 2-2 and dropped Kansas to 2-2. Indiana was the last Big Ten team to beat one from the Big Eight—Kansas 18-15 on Sept. 30, 1967. The Gophers turned the trick again by rushing for more than 300 yards against a Kansas defense that had allowed only 338 on the ground in its previous three games. The Gophers streaked to period leads of 14-7, 21-7 and 28-14 before running away in the fourth period against the favored Jayhawks. Minnesota's key drive came at the outset of the second half when Curry drove them 82 yards in 17 plays, all on the ground as eight minutes of the third period ticked away. Curry ran 18 yards on a fourth down play to the four to set up the two-yard run by Henry. Adding to Minnesota's impressive running totals were Cook, 17 carries for 114 yards, and John Marqueson, 16 for 65. Intercepted Twice Defensive end Tom Chandler led a spirited Minnesota defense while defensive back Jim Herman, a junior starting his first game, stopped Kansas drives in the first half with in terceptions on the Minnesota 10 and 32 yard lines. The Gophers avoided some adversity when return man Paul Wright fumbled three Kansas punts after fair catches in the first half but each time beat the Jayhawks to the ball. On Curry's touchdown pass to Honza in the second period, he had to scramble out of the pocket to find his receiver at the five with the nearest Jayhawk 15 yards away.

Hutchinson's offensive game actually came to life early in the second quarter when, with 9; 16 remaining, junior quarterback Doug Baar connected with slot back Kelvin O'Brien for a 39-yard TD aerial. O'Brien was wide open at the ten, took a perfect pass from Baar and skipped into the end zone. Mike Love kicked the first of five extra points to make it 7 -0. The Hawks added their second touchdown the next time they had possession of the ball, Mike Franko recovered a Winfield fumble at the Viking 18 and then put on his offensive fullback hat and gained three yards to the 15. Successive seven-yard carries by first Baar and then Scott Butterfield moved the ball down to the one and O'Brien barrelled over from that point. A sustained 80-yard drive resulted in another Salt Hawk tally with just 19 seconds left in the half. Butterfield, Baar, Marvin Motley and O'Brien ate up chunks of yardage to the Hutchinson 47 and then Baar went to the air. The poised signal caller fired a shot to junior tight end Scott Willett who made a great catch and took off for a 20 -yard pickup. On the next play, the Baar- O'Brien combo connected for the second time with a 33-yard touchdown pass. The Salt Hawks couldn 't generate any points in the third quarter, but got the scoring machine cranked up again just as final stanza got underway 1 . Matter of fact, it was on the second play of the fourth period that tailback Scott Butterfield, aided by a great block from 135-lb. Jim Hubbard, ran 59 yards for Hutch's fourth touchdown. Another Baar to O'Brien pass, this one for 30 yards, accounted for the fifth Salt Hawk touchdown. The score was set up when Orville Bryant recovered a Winfield fumble at the Viking 37. On Hutchinson's next-to-last possession of the game, Coach Glenn Percy sent in the second offensive unit and it was perking on high. Tailback Pablo Sanchez picked up 25 yards and fullback Roy Guevara ripped off 29 as the Hawks moved down to the Winfield 12 yard line. A holding penalty set Hutch back to the 27 and after a six- yard loss, sub quarterback Larry McGinnis, who had a fine game at safety with eight tackles, fired a 20-yard pass to Mike Love at the 13. Another pass fell incomplete and on fourth and 11, Love, a junior who has been hampered by a sore knee and a pulled leg muscle, kicked a 31-yard field goal. Scott Butterfield, the senior tailback, was Hutchinson's leading rusher with 115 yards on 14 carries. O'Brien chipped in 24 yards on six carries, Mike Franko had 25 yards on five carries, Baar toted 12 times for 32 yards and Marvin Motley gained four yards on one run from fullback. The Salt Hawks had a dandy night passing. They were seven of 11 for 179 yards. Baar hit five of seven for 135 yards and McGinnis was two for four for 40 yards. O'Brien was the leading receiver with three catches for 102 yards and all three grabs went for touchdowns. Butterfield had one reception for 13 yards and Willett, Love and David Dragon each had one grab for 20 yards. The Salt Hawks now stand 3-1 for the season with their only loss a 134 overtime defeat at El Dorado. Winfleld 0 0 0 »- • Hutchinson .... 021 0 17-31
