Redskins' Allen Wasn't Kidding When He Said 'The Future Is Now' By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS "The future is now," said George Allen after being named head coach and general manager of the Washington Redskins last January—and he wasn't kidding. In Allen's first season at the helm, the Redskins, perennial losers in the National Football League, are off to their fastest start since 1943. For the first time in 28 years, they have won their first three regular season games, their latest triumph a 20-16 upset over the Dallas Cowboys Sunday in the Cotton Bowl. "This should make up for the Senators' coming to Texas," said the smiling Allen, referring to the recently announced shift of Washington's baseball franchise to Dallas-Fort Worth for next season. "We had to make the folks back home proud of us." First Place The victory put the rejuvenated Redskins into sole possession of first place in the Eastern Division of the National Football Conference and left them as the only unbeaten club in the NFC. Cleveland, the lone undefeated team in the American Football Conference, puts its 20 record on the line tonight against Oakland in a nationally televised game (ABC, 8 P.M., CDT). In Sunday's other NFL games, Dstroit held off Atlanta 41-38, Baltimore whipped New England 23-3, Minnesota overpowered Buffalo 19-0, Los Angeles downed Chicago 17-3. San Francisco battered Philadelphia 31-3, Kansas City trimmed Denver 16-3, the New York Giants nipped St. Louis 21-20, the New York Jets upended Miami 14-10, Green Bay topped Cincinnati 20-17, Pittsburgh defeated San Diego 21-17, and New Orleans and Houston struggled to a 13-13 tie. Played Our Game Allen said the Redskins "played our game and didn't make any mistakes" against the previously unbeaten Cowboys. Willie Lanier Charley Harraway's 57-yard touchdown run in the first period, Bill Kilmer's 50-yard TD pass to Roy Jefferson in the second quarter and second-half field goals of 25 and 32 yards by Curt Knight accounted for the Washington scoring. Detroit defensive back Mike Weger, who scored on a 52-yard fumble return, described the Lions-Falcons game as a "free- for-all." The loss knocked Atlanta from the unbeaten ranks. Greg Landry tossed two scoring passes for the Lions and Ron Jdssie scampered 97 yards with a kickoff return for another touchdown. Earl Morrall and Johnny Un- itas combined for 19 pass completions in 24 attempt?., veteran Tom Matte and rookie Don Nottingham each ran for a touchdown, Jim O'Brien kicked field goals of 41, 42 and 50 yards, and Bubba Smith led a tenacious defense in Baltimore's victory over New England. Minnesota's pass rush was even better against Buffalo. The Vikings front four dumped Buffalo quarterback Dennis Shaw for seven losses totaling 59 yards, giving ths Bills only eight net yards in the air. Dave Osborn sparked the Minnesota offense, rushing 19 times for 93 yards, catching five passes for 65 yards and scoring once. Ended Heroics I/)s Angeles' victory over Chicago was its first in three games under new Coach Tommy Prothro and ended the Cinderella heroics of quarterback Kent Nix. Nix, after replacing injured starter Jack Concannon, completed only 5 of 23 passes for 60 yards and had three intercepted against the Rams' fired- up defense. Concannon was lost indefinitely with an injured knee. San Francisco, in handing winless Philadelphia its third lopsided loss, rolled up 510 total yards, including 308 in the air. John Brodie fired three touchdown passes for the 49ers, two to Ted Kwalick. Middle linebacker Willie Lanier led the Kansas City defense that muffled Denver's offense. Lanier made eight unassisted tackles, assisted on two others, broke up a pass play and recovered a Bronco fumble. Jan Stenerud booted three field goals for the Chiefs and Aaron Brown scored the game's only touchdown on a 68- yard pass interception. Fran Tarkenton scored one touchdown and passed for another, while rookie Rocky Thompson streaked 93 yards with a kickoff return for another TD, sparking the Giants' upset over St. Louis. The Jets recovered a punt that bounced off Miami safety- man Dick Anderson with five minutes left to beat the Dolphins. Following the recovery, the Jets went 37 yards, with George Nock scoring from the two for his second touchdown. A Cincinnati gamble that backfired with two minutes remaining enabled Green Bay to edge the Bengals. With the Packers leading 20-17, the Ben­ gals had fourth down and two at the Green Bay seven. Bengal Coach Paul Brown decided to go for the first down or the touchdown rather than a tying field goal. But the Packers' stopped rookie quarterback Ken Anderson at the line of scrimmage. Nip Chargers Pittsburgh turned a San Diego fumble and a pass interception into touchdowns and stopped three Charger threats in the closing minutes to nip the Chargers. John Fuqua scored twice for the Steelers. Charley Durkee, released earlir this season by Houston, got revenge by kicking a 37- yard field goal with nine seconds left, giving New Orleans its tie with the Oilers. Mark Moseley, who had lifted Houston into a 13-10 lead with a 44- yard field goal with 59 seconds remaining, missed a 60-yarder with four seconds to go.

Bang Out 15 Hits Pirates Torment Giants in Playoff Hutch Dog Wins Trials A record number of dogs from all across Kansas were entered in the Salt Plains Pointing Dog Club trials at the club grounds, Sunday. Gen, a female English Pointer owned by Johnny Bridges, 12 Sunset Drive, was the winner in the talent-filled Gun Dog Class (24 months and over). Red, a Vizla owned by Vern Simmons of Dodge City, was the winner in the Derby Dog Class (15-24 months) and i Lord Gunner, a German Short- hair owned by Larry James, Hutchinson, was the winner in the Puppy Dog Class (14 months or less). Younger dogs were allowed to compete in an older-dog bracket. Dogs were judged for their hunting ability in the bird field for a period of eight minutes. The next trail trial date is Sunday, Oct. 31. Anyone interested in joining the club is urged to attend a club meeting, held the last Thursday of each month at the Reno County Courthouse, 8 p.m. Defeat Blue Birds Take First Game SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — The sign in Candlestick Park's upper right field seats boldly proclaimed in fire engine red: "The Year of the Fox." It may be the year for San Francisco Manager Charlie Fox. Who knows? But Sunday was the day of the rabbit ball for the Pittsburgh Pirates. The Pirates tormented the San Francisco Giants with 15 hits, including Bob Robertson's three home runs, to secure a 94 victory and deadlock the homer-happy National League playoffs at one game apiece. The best-of-five-game series continues Tuesday with game No. 3 in Pittsburgh. "That guy on first base (Robertson) was nasty," said Fox, pointing to the Pirate slugger's p 1 a y o f f-record performance that drove in five runs, the winning margin. "Robertson was the whole story today," agreed Pittsburgh Manager Danny Murtaugh. Oh, boy, was he ever! The Intracity Golf Matches to Start The start of something new —head to head battles between top golfers of Prairie Dunes Country Club and the Carey Park Men's Golf Assn., is coming up, Wednesday, Oct. 13. Sonny Wilson, spokesman for the Men's Golf Assn. at Carey Park reports a home and home arrangement has been made with Prairie Dunes for players to compete on a handicap basis. AH Prairie Dunes players, and Men's Assn. members at the Park have been regularly turning in score - cards for computerized handicaps, based on course ratings. Thus, a very fair competition Juco Scores can be held. Prairie Dunes players were reported enthusiastic about the meeting. The 18 - hole matches will start between 2:30 and 3:30 p.m. A dinner meeting will follow. The return meeting of teams at Prairie Dunes is tentatively set for next spring. Some of the men who have been pressing for the matches are hopeful they may lead to the formation of a Hutchinson's Men's Golf Assn. similar to the women's city organization here which has operated very successfully for many years. brawny, carrot-topped slugger hadn't reached the fences in six weeks. After hitting a double in the second inning, he went to work with circuit shots in the fourth, seventh and ninth. "Six weeks without a homer is too long for a man with his power," said Murtaugh. Robertson, himself, was justj happy to be playing—let alone turn out to be the hitting hero. He once sat out a season with a kidney ailment. "I am thankful to be in baseball after the scare I received from my kidney trouble," said Robertson amidst the joyful euphoria of the Pirates' locker room. Almost Lost While Robertson turned on the power, reliever Bob Miller helped to turn off the Giants with four innings of lofty work. His performance was almost lost in Robertson's herculean performance. "Miller did a great job," said Murtaugh. "He hasn't been outstanding lately. But I thought he was outstanding out there for four innings against the Giants." The right-hander had some tough work to do when starter Dock Ellis, the Pirates' slender, 19-game winner, got in hot water in the sixth inning. The first two batters reached base, one hit by a pitch and the other with a base hit, and Miller came in to protect a 4-2 lead. Miller got pinch-hitter Frank Duffy to bunt foul for a third strike, but slipped deeper into quicksand when he walked Ken Henderson to load the bases. Then the cool reliever struck out Tito Fuentes and got out of the jam when Willie Mays lined to Roberto Clemente in right. "If there was a key play, it was when Miller struck out Fuentes in the sixth," said Murtaugh. Willie Mays Miller served up three straight hits to open the ninth, including Willie May 's two-run homer, before Dave Giusti came in to get the side out. Along with the home runs by Robertson and Mays, Gene Clines also belted one in the fifth to give the Pirates and Giants a total of seven for the two-game set in San Francisco. Much The Same "I.think these two clubs are primarily the same," noted Murtaugh. "It's not that the pitching isn't good, it's just that both are good hitting clubs. Our series have been like this all year." The Pirates' victory, first All of the dogs that placed Sunday were Hutchinson entries except the dog owned by Simmons of Dodge City.

He's 65 years old. 01' Satch, whose age has long Francisco "-jbeen a mystery, revealed Sun- Speier, Cash, . •' . .... day night at a testimonial din- for the baseball Hall of ner Fame pitcher that he was born July 7, 1906, at Mobile, Ala. Satch had the proof, a verification of his birth from the Mobile County Health Department. The birth record had Paige's name: "Leroy Page" without the "i." BALTIMORE - Thei Baltimore Orioles talked about heroes while the bitterly disappointed Oakland A's talked about an umpire after the defending champion Orioles beat the upstart A's 5-3 in the opener of their best-of-five Amican League playoff series. The teams went at it again today in the second game of the set with right-hander Jim "Catfish" Hunter hoping to succeed where ace Vide Blue failed and gain an even break for the A's before the series switches to the West Coast Tuesday. Left­ hander Mike Cuellar, one of four Baltimore pitchers who won at least 20 games this season, pitches for the Orioles. Wouldn't Talk Despite the key opening game victory, Baltimore Man ager Earl Weaver wouldn't even talk about the possibility of the Orioles sweeping the American League playoffs for the third straight year. "We have one and they don't have any," Weaver said when asked if he anticipated a sweep. "We'll be at the ball park today to play just that game. So will they. It doesn't help to think about a sweep one way or the other." Weaver preferred to talk about the clutch performance of his players, who rallied for four runs in the seventh innng off Blue, the A's sensational 24- game winner. "We battled Blue," said Weaver. "We kept our bat on the ball. We conditioned ourselves to stay away from the pitch up and around the shoulders. We figured eventually he i would slow down and the ball would stop jumping." Stopped Jumping The ball stopped jumping for Blue in the seventh inning as Frank Robinson led off with a walk. After Boog Powell struck out, Brooks Robinson singled Frank to second. Blue appeared to have worked out of the jam when he got hot-hitting Andy Etchebarren to fly out as Frank Robinson took third. Then came the first of Weaver's heroes. Light-hitting Mark Belanger ripped a single to center, scoring Frank Robinson, Brooks taking second. "That was the key to the inning," noted Oakland Manager Dick Williams. "That put them behind only 3-2." Now. Weaver turned to the bench that helped him win the American League East title by 12 games, sending up pinch hitter Curt Motton. Motton slashed a 3-1 pitch from Blue into the left field corner for a double, scoring Brooks Robinson and tying the score 3-3. At this point the A's got hot under the collar. They thought plate umpire Hank Soar made some dubious calls and that Motton should have been a strike-out victim. Dave McNally After Motton's game-tying hit, pitcher Jim Palmer ran for Motton. Paul Blair, 0-for-ll against Blue this season, then doubled down the left field line, scoring Belanger and Palmer for a 5-3 lead. Blair said he was looking for a fast ball on the 1-2 pitch, "because Blue throws too hard to look for anything else." Blue didn't disappoint. He threw the smoke and Blair broke his famine against the 22-year-old left­ hander. Blair couldn't believe that he was 0-for-ll against Blue. "Well, it was the key time to get the hit and I'm glad I got it." Dave McNally got the victory for Baltimore with two innings of relief help from Eddie Watt.

Sterling In A Setback By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Bethany and Fort Hays State authored the biggest surprises in Kansas college football last weekend while Washburn just did maintain its perfect record. Bethany, combining an opportunistic defense with the running brilliance of Mike Olson, pinned a 10-7 setback on Sterling, last week ranked 10th in the NAIA. That boosted the Swedes to the top of the Kansas College Athletic Association standings with Kansas Wesleyan. Wesleyan matched Bethany's 3-0 record with a 28-6 whipping of Tabor as Charles Jessamy enjoyed a banner night. Sterling drops to 2-1. First Blemish Fort Hays tied Pittsburg, 1414, putting the first blemish on the Gorillas' record. A lost fumble at the Pittsburg eight- yard line in the final minute cost Hays) a chance for a victory. Olson blasted for 245 yards and scored from the three to cap a 94 -yard march for the winning touchdown against Sterling. Ken Pabst had booted a 31-yard field goal to give the Swedes a 3-0 lead in the second quarter. Sterling, limited to 43 rushing yards while Bethany totaled 337 on the ground, came back with reg Kerr's three-yard touchdown run before Bethany's last- quarter drive. The winners intercepted three passes, one in the end zone, and stopped an- othr Sterling threat with a goal-line stand. Scored Twice Jessamy rushed for 238 yards and scored twice as Wesleyan overcame a 6-0 halftime deficit. KWU challenges Sterling Satur day night while Bethany travels to McPherson, 0-4 after a 29-0 loss to St. Mary of the Plains. Randy Jakious fired three touchdown passes and racked up 254 aerial yards for St. Mary. Southwestern Stayed in KCA contention by rallying for a 26-7 triumph over Bethel. Steve Knapp threw three touchdown passes in the second half in snapping a 7-7 tie. Washburn boosted its record to 4-0 with a 17-16 squeaker over William Jewell.

Carolina Froth 10 Ferrum 24/ Nassau 29 Annual Oklahoma-Texas Blowout Set Saturday KANSAS CITY (AP) — Oklahoma's devastating offense runs up against old rival Texas at Dallas Saturday in the big test for a nationally ranked Big Eight Conference football team and the Sooners hope to prove that Longhorn Coach Darrell Royal's philosophy isn't always so. Royal's philosophy is this: "There ain't a hoss that can't be rode, ain't a man that can't be throwed." The eighth-ranked Sooners have woij only one game with the Longhorns in the last 13 years. This year Oklahoma has four offensive thoroughbreds,- operating out of their high-scoring wishbone-T, to run against the third-ranked Texans in quarterback Jack Mildren, Joe Wylie, Greg Pruitt and Leon Crosswhite. This same foursome demolished Southern California Saturday 33-20 with Pruitt getting three touchdowns en runs of 42, 75 and seven yards. Three conference games are scheduled. Top-ranked Nebraska, which battered previously unbeaten Utah State 42-6 over the weekend, goes on the road for the first time this season to battle Missouri, a 22-6 loser to Army. Sixth-ranked Colorado, a 31-21 victor pver tough Kansas State in the only league game played to date, invades Iowa State, fresh from a not too impressive 17-14 triumph over Kent State. Kansas, beaten 38-20 by Minnesota, faces bitter rival Kansas State at home in Lawrence, Kan. Oklahoma State, 2-1, idle last week, travels to Texas Christian for a non-conference clash. Coach Chuck Fairbanks of Oklahoma, 3-0, called his team 's victory over Southern Cal "one of the most rewarding victories of my coaching career" but wasted no time setting his sights on Texas. "We can enjoy this one tonight but we have to start thinking about those Horns tomorrow." When Wylie scored in the first period, it broke a string of 10 straight quarters in which the Trojans hadn't yielded a point. The Sooners, who threw only one pass, piled up 516 yards rushing. "I wasn't surprised they threw so little," said downcast USC Coach John McKay. "They are not going to throw on anyone well — they don't have to." Nebraska, 4-0, scored quickly on Utah State and before it was all over, quarterback Jerry Tagge had pitched 14 yards to Bill Olds and 36 yards to Johnny Rodgers for touchdowns and scored twice himself on three and one-yard runs and the Cornhuskers had extended their unbeaten streak to 23 games. "We have always had trouble with Missouri, and we have had particular trouble moving the ball on them," Nebraska Coach Bob Devaney said. "When you start league play, all other previous showings mean nothing and the season really begins." Colorado, 4-0, came from be­ hind late in the third quarter on an 80-yard drive led by sophomore quarterback Ken Johnson to beat Kansas State, 2-2. Interception "I thought the key to the game was when Johnny Robertson intercepted that pass and got hurt," said Wildcat Coach Vince Gibson. "I honestly think if we would have had Robertson, we would have won. We had to go with two sophomore cornerbacks. We shut off Colorado's running game (which produced only 97 yards), and they beat us passing." Gibson found out in the game that his quarterback, Dennis Morrison, can produce despite ineffectiveness in the first three games. Morrison completed 15 of 32 passes for 178 yards, including a 16-yard strike to Fred Merrill for a touchdown that put K-State ahead 21-17 with 5:25 left in the third period. The Wildcats are 2-2. Coach Eddie Crowder of Colorado, which went ahead for good on Johnson's 19-yard throw to Cliff Branch, said the Wildcats "are tougher than gangbusters on defense but they have a few more elements, a few more strengths they didn't use. It allowed us to win." Blew Us Out Coach Don Fambrough, sitting in the subdued Kansas dressing room, said, "All I can say is that Minnesota had the better team today. They blew us out." Fambrough said he didn't know whether the Jayhawks, 22, were looking past the Gophers to this week's scrap with K- State. "Certainly after getting beat like this, you hope that was the case but I can't say that it was. Kansas State will present us with a strong game. With Lynn Dickey gone, they have become more a running team than they have been. And they have a very strong defensive team." The Jayhawks got all three touchdowns from Steve Conley, who ran in twice from a yard out and once from 26 yards away. It was the first decision by a Big Ten Conference team over a Big Eight club since 1967. Big Eight teams had posted 16 wins in a row. "No, Army didn't surprise us," said Coach Al Onofrio of Missouri, 1-3, whose second quarter touchdown on Chuck Roper's 56-yard run gave the Tigers a 6-3 halftime lead. "We beat ourselves. Our own errors lost momentum for us. We got to begin looking forward to our next game." Missouri tailback Jack Bastable injured both ankles after picking up 37 yards on 10 carries but is expected to be ready for Nebraska. For that game, Onofrio undoubtedly will concentrate on pass defense since Army's substitute sophomore quarterback, J. Kingsley Fink, threw three TD passes against the Tigers in the second half. X 36-yard field goal by Reggie Shoemake gave Iowa State, 3-0, its victory with 1:14 left. comeback capped by Russ Hill's 44 -yard field goal. Bakalar ran for one TD and passed 51 yards to Al Dressman for another. Bill Womack connected on field goals of 31,36 and 23 yards for the Cardinals.
