Concannon Signed By Lions PONTIAC, Mich. (AP) -Jack Concannon's got less than a week to learn the Detroit Lions' system, but as much as he's kicked around the National Football League, one system can't be all that different from another. "Jack's been under so many systems he just sort of puts his head in the computer and goes from there," said Coach Rick Forzano after Concannon signed a Lions' contract Wednesday. He'll back up Joe Reed at quarterback Sunday when the Lions are in San Francisco to face the 49ers. Reed will be starting his first game as a Lion. He was with the 49ers last year and started their first four games. Knee injuries to starting quarterbacks Bill Munson and Greg Landry against Houston last Sunday thrust third-stringer Reed into his new role. Both Munson and Landry underwent surgery Wednesday at Ford Hospital in Detroit. Landry might be able to return near the end of the season, but Munson's injury was more serious and he's out the final eight weeks of the . campaign. Dr. Edwin Guise said Munson, who was placed on the injured reserve list, will be in a cast for six to eight weeks, then will begin a rehabilitation program. "Let me say this," Guise said. "Munson's knee is infinitely better than (running back Steve) Owens'. Many, many players have come back from this... I think Munson will be ready for full activity by mid-spring." The 32-year-old Concannon took his physical Tuesday and began drilling with the Lions on Wednesday. He began the season as a backup to John Hadl at Green Bay, spending the entire training camp with the Packers before being cut in the exhibition season. He's made a number of stops around the league, most notably at Chicago. "He said he's been working out, playing some paddle ball and throwing the football a little," Forzano said. "I wouldn't say he's in real good shape right now. But he's been waiting for someone to call him." Wide receiver Marlin Briscoe, who was a quarterback early in his career and who threw 14 touchdown passes with Denver his rookie season, worked out Wednesday as Detroit's third-string quarterback. Since the injuries to Munson and Landry, the Lions have been getting all kinds of feelers from quarterback hopefuls. Neal Jeffrey, quarterback for Baylor's Southwest Conference champions last year, was on hand Wednesday for a trial. "One guy called and said he hadn't played in six years, but he'd always wanted to be a pro football player," Forzano said. "A woman called and said she had been trying to convince her husband to be a pro football player and would I call him and give him a chance." ALL HEMS BRAND NAMES ALL HEMS GUARANTEED SALE THURS.

Dorsett Pursues Griffin's Record PITTSBURGH (AP) - Joe Avezzano, Pitt's offensive line coach, was doodling on a place mat after finishing a steak sandwich at a press luncheon this week. He used a ballpoint pen to make a mathematical projection on Tony Dorsett's chances of replacing Archie Griffin as college football's all-time rushing leader. "Tony's averaging 122 yards a game and Griffin's averaging 130," Avezzano said after dividing eacli runner's career yardage by the number of games played, excluding bowls. "So if Griffin averages 130 for four more games, he finishes up with 5,250, and if Tony averages 122 for the rest of this season and all of next year, he finishes with 5,271. "It's just something to play around with that we talk about as an offensive line," Avezanno said. Griffin, a senior at Ohio State, became college football's all-time rusher last Saturday when he reached 4,730 yards. He surpassed the old record of 4,715 set by Ed Marinaro in three seasons at Cornell. Dorsett is a junior. He rushed for 122 yards last Saturday in a loss to Navy, raising his total to 3,441 yards, which puts him eighth on the all-time list. He has 851 yards this season, placing him well within reach of his third straight 1,000-yard season. Next season he could become the first college player to rush for 1,000 yards in four seasons. ' "For an offensive lineman, there's not a whole lot you remember when your career is over except some of the people you played with," said Avezzano, a starting guard for three seasons at Florida State in the mid 1960s.

"And of course Tony Dorsett is one of the great assets our offensive line has," he added. "We are very concerned about how he does, and we would like to see him be the all-time great." Last week, Dorsett moved past four players on the alltime rushing list, including Mercury Morris of West Texas State and Anthony Davis of Southern Cal. Just ahead of Dorsett in seventh place is Sonny Collins, a senior at Kentucky, who has rushed for 3,629 yards. The top six are Griffin, Marinaro, Ron "Po" James of New Mexico State, Steve Owens of Oklahoma, Woody Green of Arizona State and Mark Kellar of Northern Illinois. Spurs Get John Arbour DENVER (AP) - The Denver Spurs obtained defenseman John Arbour from Minnesota Wednesday in exchange for a 1976 first-round draft choice, officials of the World Hockey Association team said. Arbour, 30, was the seventh highest scoring defenseman in the WHA last year, tallying 12 goals and 43 assists for 55 points. The 6-foot, 208-pounder has played the last three years for the Fighting Saints. He also was a member of the 1971-72 minor league Spurs team that won the Western Hockey League title. Arbour was expected to join the team in time for Thursday night's game here against Phoenix. CENTER MIDLAND MODEL 13-904 POLICE POCKET-SIZE 4-CHANNEl AAn.

SIDEBAND RADIOS e MIDLAND PACE - SIMPSON JOHNSON Violence Purge Promised By The Associated Press The seed that hockey star Bobby Hull planted when he staged a one-game sitdown over hockey violence last weekend has blossomed into a debate between politicians and promoters. The announced crackdown by Attorney-General Roy McMurtry on violence in professional hockey got political support in Ottawa but the reaction of hockey officials was, at best, cool. In Ottawa, Justice Minister Ron Basford urged all provincial attorneys-general to follow Ontario's lead and enforce the law as it relates to violence in hockey. Basford was replying to David MacDonald, a member of Parliament, who said violence in hockey is "a bad example to young people." Clarence Campbell, president of the National Hockey League, said his opinion on McMurtry's action was irrelevant, but Ben Hatskin, chief executive officer of the World Hockey Association, contended Ontario was over-reacting. Hull, the veteran scoring star who plays for Winnipeg Jets of the WHA, announced last week he would sit out indefinitely in protest over increasing violence in the game. He was especially upset by an incident during a game against Cincinnati in which teammate Perry Miller was attacked by three Cincinnati players after scoring a goal. Hull's one-man protest lasted only one game. He was back in the Winnipeg line-up Sunday night. McMurtry, who called Hull's action a worthwhile form of protest against violence, announced Tuesday that police and Crown Attorneys in Ontario have been instructed to lay more charges against professional hockey players who commit criminal offenses on the ice. The attorney-general said he gave the order to crack down on violence in the game because he is concerned that millions of television viewers especially young children see players commit acts which breach the CrimifiafCode of Canada. He said the NHL and WHA were notified of the order by telegram. Last year, McMurtry's brother, William, prepared a report on violence in amateur hockey for provincial government. Hull could not be reached for comment on McMurtry's action. The only professional games in Ontario are played at Maple Leaf Gardens by the Toronto Maple Leafs of the NHL and the Toronto Toros of the WHA. Chief Harold Adamson of Metropolitan Toronto police said he does not regard many of the incidents that occur in hockey games as sufficiently serious to warrant a criminal charge. Police probably would not charge a player unless a serious injury resulted, he said. NHL President Campbell said in Boston his league will conform with the attorney-gener- OPEN DAILY 9T0 6 CLOSED SUNDAY GEAATRONICS ' 3 Iwiiswrw VV, GTX-23 0'v you compact tit potWd Mth oM th i trot Tt G?X 23 mplO IrvquWKy tv-th!UX Circuit to provide 23 Cryt'OtOfltrolvd (rontmil ond rtKoiv channels tn tho 27 MHZ tffrtt bond.

Bud Poile, director of hockey operations for the WHA, said in Toronto he doesn't feel violence is a problem in his league. He said that while the WHA appreciates the efforts of Hull and McMurtry to bring to light the problem, "we do not appreciate . . . remarks that the league is not concerned." Katskin said players were assessed fines totalling $4,100 above the automatic fines in an effort to curb violence.

Cincinnati Coach Terry Slater was reprimanded and ordered to post another $1,500 bond after the Winnipeg game which led to Hull's walkout. . "Many people have made the inference that some of our owners actually promote violence in order to sell seats," Hatskin said. "This is not the case. "They (the owners) are aware that this type of action would be more detrimental to our sport rather to encourage more fans." Alan Eagleson, executive director of the NHL Players' Association, said cases of vicious about two weeks."

John F. Bassett, president of the Toros, rejected McMurtry's action. "He (McMurtry) was the dirtiest hockey player who ever played, but now that he has the golden robes of office he has become the messiah for his little brother's cause," Bassett said. Harold Ballard, president of 1 the Maple Leafs, said the NHL "has always policed itself and we don't need any help from the attorney-general to police it now." "He should keep his nose out of hockey and worry about other things like crime on the street." Coach Named BELLINGHAM, Wash.
