Three More Unbeaten Teams Sure to Stumble By MICKEY MILLER And after this week, onJy three. As the overtime continues to eat away at the number of undefeated Kansas high school football teams, the number of head on collisions between- all winning, all victorious teams grows smaller by the week. This week, the fifth of the 1971 season, sends six News' area league undefeated teams into battle against one another. League titles are at stake in two meeings and division titles are risked in the third. Arkansas City, 4-0 and ranked No. 1 in Class 4-A, travels to Welington for a meeting with the No. 1 ranked Class 3-A Crusaders. Last year, Wellington won the Ark Valley League title and compiled an 8-1 overall record, but that loss was a 14-13 clipping by Ark City. Ark City has won its four games this year by an average of only 5.5 points, but the Bull dogs weren't "easy" winners last year, as their largest margin of victory was 22-6. Tribune, 4-0 and third ranked in Class 1-A, will take on Ness City, 4-0 and 10th anked in Class 2-A, on Jackrabbit turf. Tribune, a member of the Western Kansas Educational Asociation's Western Division, was defeated by Ness City last year, 20-16, but has impressive wins over Syracuse and Sharon Springs this year. Both teams have played Leoti, with Tribune whipping the Indians, 35-6, and Ness City, an East Division member of the WKEA, tripping the Tribe, 22!*• . Conway Springs, 4-0, and Clearwater, 4-0, collide in crucial Seven Star League clash. Last year, Conway Springs compiled an 8-1 record (its only loss was to Andale, 25-7) and along the way, the Cardinals dropped Clearwater, 22-6. Medicine Lodge, a third power in the SSL, plays at Andale Friday. The Indians are 3-1, with their only loss a 6-7 defeat by Pratt. The Indians will be out to avenge a 13-19 loss to Andale in 1970. With Conway and Clearwarter upcoming on their 1971 schedule, the Indians, seventh ranked in 2 -A, are still very much in the SSL title picture. Dodge City and Pratt, teams which were dealt their first losses of the season last week when they wound up on the bottom end of upsets, meet at Pratt in an important West Central Kansas League contest. Dodge City won it last year on the way to an undefeated season, 42-7. Big Four Collide In the Mid-Kansas League, the Big Four of 1971 hook up with two undefeated teams meeting one-time losers. Undefeated Fairfield, with star running back John Stucky nursing a stiff ankle, will entertain Buhler, 3-1, in a game sure to give an indication as to who will cart off the league crown. Fairfield has a rugged defense that has given up a total of only six points in four games. The Falcons lost to Buhler 22-16 last year, but hold down the No. 3{ Class 2-A ranking this year. Haven, another undefeated Mid-Kansas League team, takes its No. 5 Class 2-A ranking to Moundridge, the No. 4 ranked team. The teams have one common foe — Buhler. Haven handed the Crusaders their only loss thus far this season, 12-7, while Buhler upset Mounrdige when the Wildcats were rated No. 1 in 2-A, 7-6 in overtime. Last year, Moundridge, en route to an 8-1 season, whipped Haven, 27-0. GARY PLAYER'S GOLF CLASS: Good thoughts-good shots Sooners in Annual Braivl With Texas Second Spot To Froehling Three Head-On Collisions In Big Eight This Weekend Nicklaus Reaches VIRGINIA WATER, England (AP) — Defending champion Jack Nicklaus was a narrow winner and Arnold Palmer was an unhappy loser—upset by the swarming crowd and opponent Bob Charles—Thursday in the Picadilly World Match Play Golf Championships. Jack Nicklaus Nicklaus withstood two charges by Lian Huan Lu of Taiwan to win their 36-hole match 2 and 1 and advance to the semifinals of this eight-man tournament with a first prize of $20,440. He will play Neil Coles of Great Britain, who beat American Charles Coody 5 and 4, Friday. On Extra Mole Charles eliminated Palmer on the ; r 37th hole and will play Sojuth African Gary Player, 4 and, 3 winner over Britain's Tony Jacklin. It was dusk when Palmer and Charles finished 36 holes all j even, and Palmer walked to the tee of the first extra hole where he had to wait 10 minutes be cause Charles had gone into the clubhouse. "If I had known he was going in, I would have followed him and suggested we play the extra hole tomorrow morning because it was getting dark," Palmer said. Palmer lost the extra hole and then had something to say about the crowd of around 6,000 fans who swarmed over the fairway to watch the play. Out of Control "There's no other major tournament in the world where the gallery gets out of control as it does here," said Palmer. "It is one reason why I missed this tournament last year and the year before." , Four Chisholm Trail League teams that have lost only one game each will tangle in games that will have much bearing on the outcome of the title chase. Valley Center, defeated last week by Kingman, 13-12 in overtime, entertains Augusta. Valley Center was undefeated last year during the regular season, while Augusta lost only two games- one a 14-8 decision to the Hornets. In the other meeting between; once-beaten teams, Kingman, making a strong bid for CTL football honors, goes to Goddard for a meeting with the Lyons. Goddard's only loss has been to Augusta, 23-6, while Kingman was set down by Buhler, 13-7, in Us season opener. Last year, Kingman won only two games, but one was a 2818 triumph over Goddard. Prairie Gals Pull KANSAS CITY (AP) - Saturday will be the biggest Big Eight Conference football day so far this season with three head-on league scraps and eighth-ranked Oklahoma moving into the Cotton Bowl at Dallas, Tex., for its annual brawl with the third-rated Texas Longhorns. On paper, two of the conference games don't figure to be much more than good workouts for a couple of nationally ranked clubs. Nebraska, No. 1, goes to Missouri, and Colorado, No. 5, visits Iowa State. However, most Big Eight coaches agree that on a given day the have- nots can knock off the favorites. Kansas State's fuss at Kansas will be another matter. The favorite often doesn't win in this bitter rivalry which, if nothing else, settles the championship of Kansas. In Saturday's other game, Oklahoma State, like Oklahoma, faces a non-conference foe in Texas Christian at Fort Worth, Tex. The Oklahoma . Texas squabble brings together two teams operating from the wishbone-T. Texans claim the Soo- ners stole it from the Longhorns. Texas Coach Darrell Royal said before the Oklahomans unveiled their version against the Horns in 1970, "We haven't played anything like this except against ourself." Royal also has said that the Sooners are "equal of anybody in the nation." He added Oklahoma's 1957 national champions "couldn't move it like this crowd." Both teams are 3-0. Oklahoma, with the likes of Joe Wylie, Jack Mildren, Greg Pruitt and Leon Crosswhite running wild, has averaged 425.3 yards a game in rushing while brushing aside Southern Methodist, Pittsburgh and Southern California. Texas, averaging 349.3 yards, has walloped ULCA, Texas Tech and Oregon. Two Hunters Camping Out For First Shot at Blinds Upset PRETTY PRAIRIE - The Pretty Prairie girls' softball team racked its first victory of the season here Thursday, defeating previously unbeaten Union Valley girls, 3 to 1 a Central Sunflower grade league game. Robin Minton was winning pitcher. Union Valley boys won their first game of the season, defeating Pretty Prairie, 6-0. Pounds hit a homer for the visitors. Both Pretty Prairie teams stand 1-3. Union Valley girls are 4-1, and Union Valley boys, 1-4. At Buhler, Haven girls pushed their record to 4-0 with a 157 victory over Buhler's winless girls. K. Miller homered for Haven. By JIM HITCH . World Series fans who camp out in font of the gate for the opening game, have nothing on two Salina duck hunters. According to the Corps of Engineers at Kanopolis Reservoir, the two hunters have been camped out there since Tuesday to be first in line Sunday morning when duck blind sites are let. The letting will begin at the Corps office at 8 a.m. Only hunters over 16 are eligible for the free blind sites. Sites will bs selected on a first come, first-served basis, and marked on a map. Hunters then have 14 days to construct their blinds. The same hunters must tear down their blinds within 14 days after the season closes. .... Duck season opens Oct. 16. On the fishing front Kanopolis has provided only fair fishing for the past three or four weeks. According to the Dam Sand wich Shop, Gilbert Hadley of Hutchinson took four white bass Bob Lawrence 's grand slam homer helped Buhler boys hand Haven their first league loss, 10-3. Both Haven and Buhler teams now have 3-1 records.. Unbeaten Halstead, idle this week, travels to Haven next Thursday and a Haven victory in that one could result in a three-way championship tie. The league race has only two weeks to go and will be followed by a tourney at Union Valley. Nicker son Wins Two Nickerson scored a doubleheader over South Hutchinson at the Nickerson field, winning the girls' game 18-3 and the boys' game,.8-2. Nickerson girls stand 3-2, the boys 2-3. South Hutchinson girls are 2-3 and the boys 1-4. . Nickerson Girls Win from Haven HAVEN - Nickerson high school girls defeated Haven girls 15-13, 15-5 in volleyball competition here Thursday. Daria Dull and Lynn § trickier were outstanding for Nickerson while Wendy Cooprider ' and Donna Massey starred for Haven. Haven won the B-team game, 9-1&, 15-11 and 15-7. Nickerson "A" girls now have a 3-1 season record, Salt Hawks Take First McPHERSON - Hutchinson high school cross country runners won both varsity and second team races in the McPherson Invitational meet, Thursday. Narragansett May End Meet Roger Caldwell of Hutchinson won the A - two mile race in 10:22 despite wind and an extremely tough hilly course. Two other Hutch runners chased him home, Ted Crank taking second and Joe Gimar, third. PAWTUCKET, R.I. (AP) The racing secretary at Narragansett Park predicted Thursday the labor dispute which has closed the track could end the current meet, if it continues beyond the end of the week. Ted Dooley, secretary, said horsemen were making plans to move their animals from Narragansett to nearby competing tracks. He predicted that only 400 of the 1,100 horses now at the track will be left, if the dispute is unresolved by the end of the week. Dooley said it would be next to impossible to persuade owners to return horses to Narragansett. The Rhode Island Racing and Athletics Commission offered Wednesday to mediate the labor dispute. John F. Capaidi, chairman' of the commission, sent telegrams to J. Alden Dooley, track president, and Arthur E. Coia, president of Local 271 of the Laborers International Union. Union members continued to picket Wednesday and other employes refused to cross the lines. Hutchinson scored 27 points, with Salina Central a distant second with 64 and Newton third with 91. Junction City was fourth with 113, McPherson scored 114, Salina South 124 and Ellinwood 135. Finishing in order behind Gimar were: Dave Reese, Salina Central; Terry Reed; Salina Central; Chuck Weston, Newton; Guy Gerard, McPherson; Larry Achilles, Hutchinson; Jeff Husllg, Ellinwood and Larry Zock, Salina Central. Ter ry George of Hutchinson was 13th and Gene Bircher, 24th. The field included 47 runners. Everett Victor Mike Everett of Hutchinson won the B - team race in 11:31. He was followed by Rick Jones, Newton, Tom Taylor; McPherson, Frank Meacham, Newton; Robert Calhoun, Hutchinson; Dave Kerbs, Salina South; Tim Shea, Salina South; Jeff Ludwig, Salina Central; Tim Holtz, Salina Central and Bob Kline, Hutchinson. Ed Almanza of Hutchinson fin ished 14th, Bruce Freeman 15th, Craig Bircher, 17th and Tim Fry 19th. The Hutch B team scored 45 points Newton .was second with Salina Central, totaled 69, Salina South 79 and McPherson averaging Vh pounds and two, two-pound channel cats early in the week. Ray Peterson and Ed Nelson of Lindsborg took five white bass averaging Vk pounds and three channels averaging the same. However fishing at the Ellsworth County impoundment had tapered off toward week's end. White bass fishing was reported fair to good at Wilson Reservoir where Garrell Brewer of Campbell's Marina reported silver spoons were the best bet. Most of the whites are being taken at the 25-foot level or deeper. Fishing for whites was hot two weeks ago with catches up to two pounds, but action has tapered somewhat with a slight warming of water temperature. Brewer said anglers should be able to fill a stringer in several hours. Cheney Reservoir water level continues to drop leaving most of the shore line muddy and the water nearly inaccessible to boaters. Good fishing is reported in the spillway where white bass, largemouth and walleye have all been taken regularly in the past week. The reservoir is being lowered for repair to the surface of the dam. Foreman Floors OUie Wilson SAN ANTONIO, Tex. (AP) George Foreman, No. 2 world heavyweight contender, knocked out Ollie Wilson, 2i9, Hartford, Conn., in 2:35 of the second round here Thursday night Foreman, 219, of Houston, is now 31-0 with 28 of his victories by knockout. Wilson went down twice in the second, first on a left-right combination and then for the final time on a crushing left to the ribs. Foreman said he would leave immediately for New York to start training for his Oct. 29 fight in Madison Square garden against Brazil's Luis Pires. The Hutchinson team will compete in the Wichita Heights Invitational at 4 p.m CONSTIPATED? DUE TO LACK OP FOOD _ •ULK IN YOUR DIET • A throng of 63,000 will jam Memorial Stadium at Columbia, Mo., for the Nebraska-Missouri bout. The talent-loaded Cornhuskers, 4-0 and without a loss in 23 straight, haven't beaten the Tigers at Columbia since 1964 and then only by 16-14 Missouri is 1-3. "Past records don't mean a thing when Big Eight teams start the conference season, says Cornhusker Coach Bob Devaney. "We will have to play very well if we hope to be sue cessful." Tiger slotback Mike Fink has sounded this warning: "We can beat Nebraska." Coach Al Onofrio has labeled Nebraska as the finest offensive and defensive Cornhusker team during his 14 years at Missouri. Fink and split end John Henley, both out of action a week ago, will start. Colorado, 4-0, given a scare before beating Kansas State 3121 last week, will be meeting an Iowa State team that is 3-0. The Wildcats limited the Colorado running game, which had averaged 332 yards, to 97. Statistically, Iowa State has the third best rushing defense in the league. Had Surgery Colorado will play without defensive tackle Stu Aldridge, who underwent surgery last Sunday on his left knee. The Buffs will blend Ken Johnson's passing with a running attack featured by Charlie Davis while Iowa State will counter with Dean Carlson's aerials and George Amundson's running. Kansas and Kansas State are both 2-2. A sellout audience of 51,500 will view the Jayhawks homecoming. Kansas State has beaten Kansas only once, two years ago, in the last 15 years, The Jayhawks are smarting from two straight setbacks, and Coach Don Fambrough says, "To be competitive, we have to be reckless. In the last two weeks, we've lost some of our recklessness, and we have to go back to doing the things that won for us," Basler Out Kansas linebacker Phil Basler will be out with a twisted knee but defensive end Eddie Sheats, sidelined two games, will be ready. Sophomore Don Goode will replace Basler. Halfback Vince O'Neil will play for Kansas after being ineligible for four games because of a recruiting violation involvement. Kansas State may be without Johnny Robertfon, a corner- back, who has a shoulder injury. Oklahoma State, idle last week, is 2-1. Sophomore Brent Blackman is expected to start at quarterback for the Cowboys, who have planned a new look on offense for the Horned Frogs, 1-2. TCU will be the biggest team the Cowpokes have faced this season. If a comparison of scores means anything, Oklahoma State lost to Arkansas 31-10 while TCU bowed to the Razorbacks last week 49-15, I CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) The two top players, Stan Smith of Pasadena, Calif., and Hie Nastase of Romania, were drawn for the opening match in the Davis Cup Challenge Round, The second match sends U.S. team's Frank Froehling of Fort Lauderdale, Fla., against the Romanian veteran Ion Tiriac. The matches start at 1 p.m. EDT, Friday on the Julian Clark clay courts in suburban Charlotte. The doubles will be played Saturday, with the final two singles, in reverse order, Sunday in the best-of-5 match series, Smith meets Tiriac and Froehling takes on Nastase, in that order, on the final day. Surprise Choice Ed Turville, the American captain from Fort Lauderdale, pulled a surprise when he elected Froehling, a 27-year-old Davis Cup veteran who stayed out of big-time competition for five years, for the second singles slot over Clark Graebner of New York. "We feel that Froehling, who grew up on this type of surface, will have a better chance than Graebner, who is better on grass and hardcourts," Turville explained. Graebner was upset by the decision, saying, "I have a record a mile long against these two guys." Graebner has beaten Nastase Ross Wilson Play Resumes The Judd Durners hold a one point lead over all rivals heading into the second and final round of the Ross Wilson Trophy tournament for husband- wife teams, Sunday. The Lyle Foys are in second place with 38 points and H. H. Hollingsworths, and. Lee Raineys are tied for third with 37.

(AP) Clarence "Biggie Munn, 63, athletic director at Michigan State University the past 17 years, was hospitalised Thursday afternoon following an apparent stroke. "It appears Mr. Munn has suffered a stroke," Dr. Theodore I. Bauer, said some two hours after first reports of the hospitalization. Bauer, Munn's physician, had said earlier Munn was in the intensive care ward of Sparrow Hospital for observation after "an of fainting." four out of the five times they have met and never lost to Ti­ riac in three engagements. Froehling, on the other hand, is 0-3 against Nastase and 1-0 against Tiriac who he crushed 6-1, 6-1 in Omaha, Neb., this year. Clay Favors Europeans The Americans face the danger of losing the Cup for the first time to an Iron curtain country. The clay court on which tha matches will be played should be to the liking of the Europeans. Stan Smith I Building or Remodeling _!

Yolweider Skelly Service <B00 N. Main — Hutchinson — NO 24MM The issue might be decided in the first match. Should Nastase, one of the world's standout players who has swept through 12 Davis Cup matches without a defeat this year, win over the reigning U.S. Open champion, the result would give the Romanaians a psychological boost that might be impossible to overcome. Smith will team in doubles with 20-year-old Erik Van Dillen of San Mateo, Calif., against Nastase and Tiriac, and the Americans should have an edge in this match. The Romanians challenged the United States for the tennis trophy two years ago, losing 5-0, but at that time the United States had such players as Arthur Ashe, Jr., Charlie Pasarell and Bobby Lutz, who are now contract professionals. With Froehling a question mark—a man who can make a goat or a hero of his captain— the Yanks must rely heavily on Smith, a former University of Southern California ace from Pasadena, Calif. The Open champion will attempt an iron man role, playing both singles and doubles, over the three-day period. He will team with 20-year-old Erik Van Dillon of San Mateo Calif., in Saturday's doubles, meeting Nastase and Tiriac. In the final singles Sunday, the order will be reversed, with Smith opposing Tiriac and Froehling meeting Nastase in that order. Liked Draw "The draw was ideal for us," Turville said. "With Smith playing doubles, I am glad to see him in the opening match so he will get some rest. Also, if the series is still alive, I know of no man I'd rather have playing the first match on Sunday." "We have a very good chance—we will be playing very hard," predicted Tiirac, chief spokesman for his team. "It would be good to be 2-0 after the first day," said Nastase. Nastase and Tiriac both said their chances are far better than in 1969, when they lost to the United States 5-0 at Cleveland. Page 8 The Hutchinson News Friday, Oct. 8, 1971 Rag-Tag Grid Clinics Set At Five Sites Fifth and sixth grade boys who did not attend last Saturday's Hag football clinics should make every effort to attend a clinic Saturday, as teams are to be organized for league play, starting a week from Saturday. The clinics will be held at five playing sites, starting at 9 a.m. These are Elmdale Park, Ave. E and Plum; Marti n Johnson Park, 15th and Monroe; Graber school playground, 1600 Cleveland; Morgan playground, 100 West 27th and McCandless playground, 700 North Baker. While 140 boys turned out last week, none of the playing sites had enough players to organize leagues. At Elmdale and McCandless, there we're not enough players for four teams, as had been expected. At other sites there were too few for six team leagues. If Saturday's turnout is small, some sites may be combined. Supervisors will conduct the clinics at each site. They will explain rules and fundamentals of the game. For games, boys should wear heavy clothing and gym shoes. Football pads and football shoes will not be permitted. Boys from outside Hutchinson's school district are welcome, but they must pay $2 to help defray expenses for a season of play.

(AP) Walter Swoops, a Chicago boxer was listed in critical condition in St. Mary's Hospital Thursday following his collapse in the second round of a scheduled five-round bout. Swoops, 27, was rushed to the hospital from the Mayo Civic Auditorium Wednesday night and underwent brain surgery. Ringside observers of the fight said Swoops didn't appear to have received any hard blows to his head. Swoops' opponent was Jesse Green, Minneapolis. The two also had met on a St. Paul, Minn., card last Friday, with Swoops winning on a decision.
