(AP) Can Oklahoma win an unprecedented third-consecutive national college football championship? "I don't know, but we're the only ones that have got a chance to do it," Sooner coach Barry Switzer quipped Wednesday as the defending national champions returned to the practice field for the annual Sooner photo day signaling the start of fall practice. Some 130 Sooner hopefuls, including walk-ons, showed. The only one missing was junior college transfer Mickey Hatcher, a split end and punting candidate, who was excused because he is playing in National Baseball Congress at Wichita, Kan. Three-a-day workouts in shorts began today, with the Sooners donning pads for the first time on Sunday. Oklahoma has 12 starters back, but those who used up their eligibility include in- clude the guts of the Sooner defensive line — Leroy and Dewey Selmon and Jimbo Elrod. Those missing on offense include quarterback Steve Davis, running star Joe Washington and split ends Tinker Owens and Billy Brooks. "This season, our coaching staff is excited because it's going to be kind of a rebirth," said Switzer. "It kind of reminds me of 1973...We have a lot of question marks and inexperience." Despite a lot of question marks in 1973, the Sooners, behind sophomore Davis, posted a 10-0-1 record and went on to a 11-0 record in 1974 and ll-l last year, including the Orange Bowl win over Michigan. The Sooners will be led this year by junior quarterback Dean Blevins, who will be starting his first game when Oklahoma opens its season against Vanderbilt Sept. 11. After Defecting Switzer promised there would be a stress on discipline this fall, with so many leaders departed. "We'll be disciplined," he said. "Our players will be judged on their performance, not who they are." He hinted he felt a little easier about the 1973 season. "I really expected to win eight or nine ball games that year," he said. "We had a great runner- in Joe Washington plus Lucious Selmon and his two brothers joining him. "I had reason to say we'd be successful." Switzer said one big plus this season "will be the fact of what we have done the past three years — the momentum." The main problems will be replacing the Selmons on defense, and finding a center on offense. Anthony Bryant is back at one defensive tackle post while Richard Murray, Reggie Kinlaw and Phil Tabor are the most likely prospects at noseguard and the other tackle spot. "We don't know the best combination," said Switzer. "We've got to find out and we've got to do it in a hurry." Switzer said .Karl Baldisch- wiler, who had been looked at at center in the spring, will be placed back at tackle to team with mammoth Mike Vaughn at the other tackle. Top candidates for center include three sophomores — Paul Tabor, 6-4, 230, of Page 9 Garden City Telegram Thursday, August 19,1976 Houston; Jody Farthing, 6-0, 240, Midwest City, Okla., and Greg Roberts, 6-4, 250, Nacogodoches, Tex. Soviet Diver Ready To Return to Russia AH'Hides'for Title Training NEW YORK (AP) — Muhammad Ali's voice was loud and clear and confident, just as if he was speaking at a packed Manhattan news conference or before 25,000 idolators f at the airport in Kuala Lumpur. But it came over a telephone line from Show Low, Ariz, "What are you doing in Next East-West Game in Lawerence LAWRENCE-Annual Kansas high school East-West all-star football game for next summer will be played at Lawrence. Date will be June 11, 1977. The big game is a promotion of the state's Shriners, and it's called the Shrine Bowl game. Merv Lamm is executive director of the contest. This summer's game was played at Cessna Stadium on the campus of Wichita State University, and drew a record crowd of 19,000 fans. The West scored a 28-24 decision over the East. The West holds a 2-1 advantage in the three-year series. The East team won the 1974 inaugural game by 16-14, but the West took the 1975 contest by 3-0 on a field goal. Duane Howard of Derby was selected as the outstanding player on the West squad in this summer's event. Abner Reese of Wellsville won that honor for the East squad. The 1977 game will be at Memorial Stadium on the campus of University of Kansas. SUPPORT Bronc Busters Lions MAGIC SHOW Sept. 10 High School Aud. 7:30 P.M. Show Low?" the questioner asked, his voice betraying the doubt he felt. "I wanted to get away from people so I could concentrate on training.

So, because of what will be a stern test for his abilities, the 34-year-old champion said he has had to forsake people, leeching people and pretty people — "The prettiest women in the world are among my people" — and seek refuge at a training camp at the Show Low Airport. To get to the camp, and Show Low, you fly' from Phoenix on Cochise Airlines The self-proclaimed "most famous man in the world" — a legitimate argument — said he discovered Show Low when he went west to join Dick Gregory, the activist who was making a cross-country walk to underscore the plight of the nation's poor people. The advice of his manager also sent the champion into what for him is virtual hermitage. "Herbert Muhammand is the smartest man ever to hit boxing," Ali said. Actually the attendance at the workouts in Show Low is not much different than in Berrien Springs, said Ali. But there is one major difference: "These are Indians and old people and they don't beg for money." Norton is scheduled to show up in New York and train in New York's Catskills two weeks before the fight. But Ali claims he won't be in New York until three days before the bout, that this time he doesn't have to "hustle" tickets. MONTREAL (AP) — Soviet diver Sergei Nemtsanov 'was expected to return to Moscow today, exactly three weeks after he leapt into international prominence with his decision to defect to Canada during the Olympics. An official at the Soivet consulate said Wednesday that Nemtsanov would be leaving soon on a Soviet airplane. The next scheduled Aeroflot flight to Moscow from Montreal leaves Mirabel Airport at 8:30 p.m. today. Since handing himself over to Soviet authorities at a downtown hotel coffee shop Tuesday, the young diver has been reported by Soviet officials to be staying inside one of two massive fenced-in 'consulate buildings'here. '•'• The" reason "for the '17-year- old athlete's apparent change of mind and decision to return home was concern for the con- VFW STAG THURSDAY NIGHT AUGUST 19 Starts at 7:30 P.M. Happy Hour 5:30 to 6:30 MEMBERS & GUESTS dition of the grandmother who brought him up, say Nemtsa- nov's lawyers Alex Pater and David Matheson. In Toronto Tuesday, John Fleming, the Canadian businessman who sheltered Nem- tsanov for 12 days at his Muskoka, Ont, said the diver is going home because he loves his 70-year-old grandmother. "She was ill and that's the reason Sergei is going home." However, announcements of the athlete's concern for his grandmother appeared to conflict with comments from those who were in contact with him soon after his defection. When word was released that his grandmother had petitioned Prime Minister Tjrudeau for his return, reporters^ were told that the diver'did not'feel particularly attached to the woman arid it was stressed how much time he had spent away from her. At no time during his stay in Canada has Nemtsanov made a public statement on his own behalf. Nemtsanov has consistently stayed one step ahead of the press, even though he spent time with two different families in different locations. After leaving the Olympic Village he stayed with the Montreal diving couple, Skip and Mary Phoenix, and then moved to the Muskoka cottage of the Fleming family who are related to Canadian Olympic diving-team member Scott Cranham. Nemtsanov is reported to have confided to Cranham at the Olympic Village that he wished to defect to Canada.

Larry Landreth scattered five hits in leading the 89ers to victory. Barry Newman Accused in Suit TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) — Barry Newman, who played a lawyer in the TV series "Petrocelli," has been accused in a lawsuit of negligent driving that led to the death of a man. Barbara Hoppe of Green Valley, Ariz., filed the suit in Superior Court alleging that Newman's negligent and reckless driving last April 22 caused a traffic collision in which her husband, Herbert, was injured. The suit said the accident provoked a heart attack which killed Hoppe several weeks later. The suit asks unspecified damages. Police records of the collision said Hoppe suffered a wrist injury, was treated at a hospital here and released. Newman was here filming the since-canceled series. Gary Martz knocked in five runs with two homers in Omaha's win over Iowa. Luis Alvarado got the game- winning hit in Tulsa's win over Wichita. The Aeros had tied the game at 1-1 in the sixth on Tony Franklin's rbi single scoring Mike Sember. Sember singled to open the eighth! but was forced out. The Oilers set a triple-A record by going six straight games without an error. The cliff-hanger was the Indians-Triplets affair, which ended on Junior Kennedy's game-winning hit in the 13th to score Dave Revering, who had singled. Klan Leader Found Guilty JOPLIN, Mo. (AP) — Bill G. Kohler, self-proclaimed southwestern Missouri leader of the Ku Klux Klan, has been found guilty of malicious destruction of property. He was charged in connection with about 75 cases of window breakage and other property damage in Easttown, a predominately black neighborhood. Following his conviction in magistrate court Wednesday he was sentenced to 180 days in jail and fined $700. last Chance Unusual Savings on all Discontinued Washers and Dryers. Limited Quantities!
