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, Detroit 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 Lanicr 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 attempts, 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 the 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 Log 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, ths 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 Ihe 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 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. All 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 team: at Prairie Dunes is tentalively set for nexl 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 lo the women's cily organization here which has operated very sue cessfully for many years. >rawny, carrol-lopped slugger hadn't reached the fences in six .veeks. After hilling a double in Ihe second inning, he wenl lo work wilh circuit shots in the fourth, sevenlh and ninth. "Six weeks without a homer too long for a man with his power," said Murlaugh. Roberlson, himself, was jusl lappy lo be playing—lei alone ;urn oul lo bs Ihe hilling hero. He once sal oul a season with a kidney ailment. "I am thankful to be in base>all after the scare I received 'rom my kidney trouble," said Robertson amidsl Ihe joyful euphoria of Ihe Pirates' locker room. Almost Lost While Robertson turned on ;he power, reliever Bob Miller helped to lurn off the Giants with four innings of lofly work. His performance was almosl lost in Robertson's herculean performance. "Miller did a great job," said Murtaugh. "He hasn't been outstanding lately. Bui I Ihoughl he was oulslanding oul Ihere for four innings againsl the Giants." The right-hander had some tough work to do when slarler Dock Ellis, the Pirates' slender, 19-game winner, got in hot water in the sixth inning. The first two bailers reached base, one hit by a pitch and Ihe olher with a base hit, and Miller came in to protecl a 4-2 lead. Miller gol pinch-hiller Frank, Duffy to bunt foul for a third strike, but slipped deeper into quicksand when he walked Ken Henderson lo load Ihe bases. Then Ihe cool reliever slruck oul Tito Fuentes and got out of the jam when Willie Mays lined to Roberto Clemente in right "If Ihere was a key play, it was when Miller struck out Fuenles in the sixth," said Murlaugh. Willie Mays Miller served up three straight hits to open the ninth, including Willie May's Iwo-run homer, before Dave Giusli came in lo gel Ihe side out. Along with the home runs by Robertson and Mays, Gene Clines also belted one in the fifth lo give the Pirates and Giants a lolal of seven for Ihe two-game set in San Francisco. Much The Same "I.think these two clubs are primarily the same," notec Murtaugh. "It's not that the pitching isn't good, it's just thai both are good hilling clubs. Oui series have been like Ihis al! year." The Pirales' victory, firsl ever in a playoff and only third n Candelstick Park in the last 14 games, doesn't necessarily ;ive Ihem a psychological edge as Ihe learns Pittsburgh, says Murtaugh. "I don't believe learn advanlages," said Mur- laugh. "I Ihink if you're good enough lo win a division tille, then you're good enough lo win home or away. 'I jusl play the players I think can win on any given day and hope they're hot. The hot team will win the pennant" PITTSBURGH SAN FRANCISCO Hutch Dog Wins Trials A record number of dogs from all across Kansas were entered in the Sail Plains Pointing Dog Club trials at the club grounds, Sunday.

BALTIMORE (AP) - The Baltimore Orioles talked about heroes while the bitterly dis- ippointed Oakland A's talked nbout an umpire after the de- ending champion Orioles beat -he upstart A's 5-3 in the opener of their best-of-five Amican reague playoff series. The teams went at it again ;oday in the second game of the set with right-hander Jim "Catfish" Hunter hoping to succeed where ace Vide Blue failed and *ain an even break for the A's Before the series switches to -he West Coast Tuesday. Left- lander 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 Manager 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' have any," Weaver said when asked if he anticipated i sweep. "We'll be at the bal park today to play just tha 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 our selves to stay away from the pitch up and around the shoul jders. We figured eventually he 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 singlet Frank to second. Blue appearec 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 Weav er's heroes. Light-hitting Mark Belanger ripped a single to cen ter, scoring Frank Robinson 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- Brooks taking second. "That was the key to the in ning," noled Oakland Manage Dick Williams. "That put them behind only 3-2." Now, Weaver turned to the •ench that helped him win the American League East title by 2 games, sending up pinch hit- er Curt Motion. Motton slashed a 3-1 pitch rom 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 piste umpire Hank Soar made some dubious calls and that itton should have been a strike-out victim. Dave McNally After Motion's game-tying hit, pitcher Jim Palmer ran for Motion. 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 loo 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. yard line in Ihe final minute cost Haysi a chance for a victo- Olsoni 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 Frosh 10 Perrum 24, Nassau 27 Annual Oklahoma-Texas Blowout Set Saturday KANSAS CITY (AP) - Oklahoma's devastaling offense runs up against old rival Texas at Dallas Saturday in the big test for a nationally ranked 1 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 thai can'l be rode, ain'l a man lhal can't be thro wed." The eighth-ranked Sooners have won 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 Crossw- hile. This same foursome demolished Soulhern 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 Stale 42-6 over Ihe weekend, goes on Ihe road for Ihe firsl time this season to battle Missouri, a 22-6 loser to Army. Sixth-ranked Colorado, a 31-21 victor pver tough Kansas Stale in Ihe only league game played to dale, invades Iowa State, fresh from a not too impressive 17-14 triumph over Kenl Slate. Kansas, beaten 38-20 by Minnesota, faces bitter rival Kansas State at home in Lawrence, Kan. Oklahoma State, 2-1, idle last week, travels lo Texas Christian for- a non-conference clash. Coach Chuck Fairbanks of Oklahoma, 3-0, called his team's victory over Southern Cal "one of Ihe mosl 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 siring of 10 straight quarters in which Ihe Trojans hadn't yielded a point. The Sooners, who threw only one pass, piled up 516. yards rushing. "I wasn't surprised Ihey threw so little," said downcast USC Coach John McKay. "They are not going to Ihrow on anyone well — they don't have lo." Nebraska, 4-0, scored quickly on Utah Stale and before il 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 lo 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 Stale, 2-2. Interception "I thought the key to the game was when Johnny Robertson intercepted thai pass and gol hurl," said Wildcal Coach Vince Gibson. "I honesl- ly think if we would have had Roberlson, we would have won. We had lo go with two sophomore cornerbacks. We shul off Colorado's running game (which produced only 97 yards), and they beat us passing." Gibson found out in the game thai 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-Stale 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 Ihrow to Cliff Branch, said the Wildcats "are tougher than gangbusters on defense but they have a few more elements, a few more strengths Ihey didn'l 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 Ihs 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 wilh K- Slale. "Certainly after getting beat like this, you hope lhat was the case but I can't say thai it was. Kansas Stale 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. II was the first decision by a Big Ten Conference learn over a Big Eight club since 1967. Big Eight teams ed 16 wins in a row. "No, Army didn't surprise us," said Coach Al Onofrio of Missouri, 1-3, whose second quarter louchdown on Chuck Roper's 56-yard run gave the Tigers a 6-3 halftime lead. "We beat ourselves. Our own errors lost momenlum 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. A 36-yard field goal by Reggie Shoemake gave Iowa Slate, 3-0, ils victory with 1:14 left. a comeback capped by Russ Hill's 44-yard field goal. Bakalar ran for one TD and passed 51 yards to Al Dressman, for another 1 . Bill Womack connected on field goals of 31,36 and 23 yards for the Cardinals.
