Hardly Worth It Denver Broncos coach Lou Saban may have set some sort of professional football record for shortest penalty during the team's upset win over Kansas City. When an official ruled that the Chiefs' Wendell Hayes' knee touched the turf at the four-inch line before he fumbled into the end zone where Denver recovered the ball, Saban argued that his knee hadn't had. the ball. He got in one or two more words than he should have and the official called him out of order, throwing the flag and marching off a half-the-distance penalty two inches. , Colorado assistant football coach Augie Tammariello on Kansas State's artificial turf says, "That is the highest crown I have ever seen and it was tricky. I felt like I was on Pike's Peak when I walked out to the middle of it before the game."

Fight Atlanta Ufi Muhammed Ali, coming back from 3 years of idleness and frustration, battered young Jerry Quarry into a bloody mess Monday night and won a third round knockout victory that sent him again in pursuit of the heavyweight championship he has never lost. Referee Tony Perez stopped the bout after the third round ended with blood gushing from an ugly gash over Quarry's left eye. The announcer, Johnnie Addie, announced to a Husker By HAL BROWN Star Sports Editor The football cliche about "on a given day, anybody . . ." has the Nebraska coaching staff worried this week and head coach Bob Devaney passed that warning on to Husker fans Monday at his weekly appearance before the NU Extra Point Club Quarterback Luncheon. "Colorado is a team that was picked before the season started to be one of the top teams in the Big Eight and in the country," Devaney pointed out, looking ahead to this week's foe in Boulder, Colo. "They've had some days when things didn't go well for them. "Against Oklahoma, they gave the ball away a lot, but -CLAY DISAPPOINTED- Brash Ali Predicts Frazier To Be Easy Atlanta iff) Muhammad Ali left a bloody, defeated Jerry Quarry after their Monday night heavyweight fignt ana preaictea that "Joe Frazier will be easier to hit." ; . All. his smooth face ull unscathed, is almost certain to battle Frazier for the heavyweight championship if the title holder gets past Bob Foster in Detroit next month. "Quarry hits harder than Frazier," said Ali, a calm but coughing victor. "Quarry is also harder to hit." Ali showed no rust from his 43-month layoff after having the crown taken away in the courts for failing to step forward for the military draft. "See this drawing," said Ali, holding an amateurish bit of artwork. "I drew that several days ago. It's the boxing ring and the referee is telling me, it'sali over, AIL go to your corner.' " The bronzed native of Louisville, Ky., said he wished the Quarry fight had lasted longer than the third round knockout. "I needed the . work and the longer it lasted, the easier it was to land my punches," said Ali in nuiet. unexoited tones. "If Quarry had not been cut so bad, he probably couia nave gone iv rounds or so. I wish he had." Ali said he was suffering from a slight cold. He talked with the giant battery of newsmen as a raging crowd yelled its approval of the triumph outside the doors. "Quarry was a good boxer, a tricky .fighter," he said. "He tries to sucker you in for a big punch. But, he never landed on on me." ' . Ali again proclaimed that his layoff was no special problem in the comback before a Deep South audience that was 60 per cent black and dominated by mod, colorful clothes. "I was nervous before u started, tense like I like to be," said Ali, his trainers Angelo Dundee and Drew "Bundini" Brown sitting silently at bis side, '' "There was excitement in the live crowd and I'm sure it was that way ail over the country, all over the world . . . even on Russia." AJi Bounded the . blond CaUfornian in the first round, but the former champion said he didn't think "it was going to end right then. He could have gone a long way except for the bad cut over his eye." Ali kept saying that Frazier, who won a heavyweight elimination for the vacant title when the man born as Cassias Clay was dethroned, would "be much easier than Quarry." Dundee said "the guy I saw with Quarry was the same ' guy mar lought Foiley" in March 1967. "It was sort of scary." The widow of civil rights leafier Martin Luther lung Jr, presented All with a Martin Luther King sports . medallion "you ar not only the cnamwon Stopped screaming crowd of 5,000 in the ramshackle Atlanta Municipal Auditorium that Perez found the injury too severe for the fighter to continue. , It was a straight right hand that-opened the wound near the end of the third round, but it was only an act of mercy that stopped the fight at the end. Confident and appearing almost arrogant, Ali made a mockery of the No. 1 heavyweight challenger with left jabs that struck out like 'ON A GIVEN DAY, ANYBODY . . .'- Pans Warned About Colorado they beat Iowa State, a team that gave Kansas trouble last week, by 61-10 and Colorado is a team that can be tremendous on a given day. They are a big, strong team." Nebraska freshman coach Jim Ross, who scouted . the Buffs in their loss last week at Missouri, called it the best game he had seen Missouri play and he saw the Tigers against Oklahoma State yand Nebraska earlier. "Colorado is a fine football team," he noted. "They have as good personnel as anyone in the conference and as good as anyone we've played outside the conference with the exception of Southern Cal." Noting that he was pleased with the outcome of the 65-31 of boxing," said Mrs. King, "you are the champion of justice and peace." Quarry needed 11 stitches to close the gaping wound over his left eye. His lather, Jack, said All would hot have the easy time against Frazier that The predicted. '.. , Frazier will kill him," said the senior Quarry. "He'll give him more pressure than Clay has ever seen. Quarry said, "I missed him with a right hand by that. much," holding two fingers an inch apart. "If I had landed that, they would not have had to worry about cuts," said the No. 1 contender. "I didn't want it stop ped, but Teddy Bentham (trainer) did the right thing." Quarry stormed around the bloody ring at the time, trying to get anyone who listened even Ali to keep the bout going. Nebraska In Battle For No. 1 New York (UPI) - Ohio State, Texas and Notre Dame continued their season-long bat tle for national honors Monday with two more unbeatens, Nebraska and Michigan, joining he battle. , Ohio State remained No. 1 in the nation, receiving 17 first place votes and 307 points from the 33 members of the 35-man United Press International board of coaches who participated in ' the . balloting.' Texas, with 10 first place votes, gained 271 points, barely edging Notre Dame (269). Nebraska retained fourth in the balloting with 245 points while Michigan moved up to fifth with 171. Ohio State had to rally to down an inspired Illinois team, spurred on by the firing of coach Jim. Valek, who was later reinstated, 48-29.

"It was more than a win for a fighter it was a social victory," said Ali, who was stripped of his crown in 1967 when he refused to take the step for military service. He was sentenced to five years in jail and fined $10,000 by a federal judge but he appealed the case and never went to jail. During the past 43 months, when at one time he ballooned to a bulbous 240 triumph over Oklahoma State, Devaney pointed out, "Lest you think we were completely unsatisfied with our defense in that game, our defense scored 21 of the points. "Of course, they had some help in that from one offensive fellow." The offensive player he was referring to was Johnny Rodgers, who returned a punt 66 yards for a TD. The other points by the defense came on pass interception runbacks for TDs by John Adkins and John Decker. Of Dick Graham's kickoff return for an Oklahoma State score, Devaney observed, "We had a combination of offensive and defensive players on the field then. "We try to get our best RIGHT TO THE CHIN . f ' . , - ' 'f f , . ' 1 'U (ff -ml Ellchorn Moves Up Ladder To Pace Class C Ratings By VIRGIL PARKER Prep Sports Writer There is only one new team among the 20 clubs in the current Class 6 and C high school ootball ratings, but quite a few changes occur in the listing of the two divisions in comparison ;o a week ago. Lincoln Pius X, after registering two victories in a single week over a pair of Class foes, continues to pace the Class B top ten, while Elkhorn moves up to the top rung on the Class C ladder. The same ten teams occupy Class B, with only one change taking place. That came about when previously No. 3 ranked Omaha Cathedral was' roughly handled by Class C's Fremont BerganK . The loss caused Cathedral to slide-to the No. 8 spot, with everyone who was fourth to eighth a week ago moving up a notch. ' v.CathedraJ then slips in, leav dig Sidney and Auburn still No. and 10. v ; ? c All the others in the Class B top ten were winners during the past week. Seward, which has won six in a row since an open ing toss to Central City, is the closest challenger to the select group. The Blue Jays host No. 6 Aurora Wednesday night in bid to crack the list. Ashland, which has lost only to Class C leader Elkhorn, unbeaten Arlington and defending state Class B champ Cozad are the others which threaten the leaders., - : ; ' Elkhorn completes its climb to pounds, he has made speeches on campuses and carried on his' work as a Black Muslim minister. Always looking, he said, to the day he would get back his crown. He now sets his sights on Joe Frazier, a bullish man who captured the championship during Ali's absence. A few minutes after Ali's hand was raised in victory, a physician at ringside said that Quarry's left brow was split and the wound might require as many as ten stitches. Quarry, 25, reared in the tacklers, our fastest players and our most aggressive players in on our kickoff team and sometime I'm going to find out why people keep running kickoffs back against us." Graham's was the second in two weeks with Vince O'Neil returning one for a TD for Kansas the previous week. "If a kickoff return is executed properly, it is one of the toughest things to defense against consistently," the Husker head coach added. Devaney again praised the NU offensive line,, noting, "When an offense is operating well, you've got to know that you're getting protection up front. "You've got to know that your line is giving the passer time to throw and that they're . . All jabs a hard right to Quarry's chin in the first round. 'BOLTS DOMINATE CLASS B the top after previous leader Hebron was dumped (38-12) by No. 4 Southern. Though Southern advances one notch to third, the Raiders are kept from a higher position by the outstanding play of the Antlers and Fremont Bergan.

In his corner, he pulled away from his father, Jack, and trainer Teddy Bentham, storming and tugging in an attempt to continue the fight. It was the 24th knockout for the masterful Ali, also known as Cassius Clay, in a professional career that has seen him score 30 victories without a defeat over a ten-year period. opening holes for the backs." In particular, Devaney pointed to tackle Wally Winter and said, "Coaches Carl Selmer and Cletus Fischer (offensive line coaches) were in agreement that Wally played one of his better games." Defensively, Devaney said, "We continued to get fine performances from people like Jerry Murtaugh and Dave Walline, but Larry jacobson might have had one of his better games Saturday." The Husker coach said he hoped to be able to get his gridders onto the natural turf practice fields this week since the next two' games at Colorado and Iowa State will be played on grass, but added the weatherman might throw a crimp in those plans. tion after the Cathedral win. With Hebron now fourth the top four are the same as a week ago, just in a different order. Gibbon and Red Cloud are fifth and sixth, the same as last week.

Fremont oft Class Bs No. 3 rated Omaha Loup - Scotia; Coleridge and Scribner - - - Ali, weighing 213, the sec- ; ond heaviest since he won the title by stopping Sonny Liston in Miami. 1964, was a ruthless machine-like destroyer as he cut Quarry down with merciless ease. Quarry, 25, losing for the fifth time in a career that has seen him score 23 knockouts weighed 19714. The impressive victory answered the one vital question for ring buffs around the world. The 28-year-old descendant of a Kentucky slave, whose brashness and boxing brilliance has captivated the world, lost little from his long idleness. He can still "float like a butterfly and sting like a bee" a motto coined by his trainer, Bundini Brown and more than that he can still fell a tree with a punch. He seems to have proved it now for all concerned. There was a mixture of boos amid the rafter-rocking shouts as he entered the ring his black head high in the air and his eyes flashing with fire. From the beginning, it was , evident that Quarry was over- , matched. In the opening round, Ali ,: rocked the California Irishman with two stiff right to , ' the head and had him reeling as he went to his corner. "Stick with him when you dance, stick him when you dance," yelled Bundini from ' his corner. v i Probably unhearing but act- ; ing from instinct, All followed that formula and it was mer- ' cilessly effective. Stab, stab, stab time after time, Ali's left reached out almost too quick for the eye to . follow and it landed repeatedly on Quarry's unshaven chin. Quarry was the relentless stalker, following his plan to "swarm all over Ali." He kept boring forward, but blows rocked off his head so often that even ringsiders cringed. Quarry was bruised and be ginning to show signs of discouragement as he plopped on his stool after the first round. In the second, Ali, still erect, a swordsman competing against a bull, continued to cut away at the aggressor's features. He jabbed. He landed a vicious hook. He scored with a right to the head. . As Quarry limped back to his corner atfer the second round, a huge lump was beginning to show over his left eye. He was bleeding at the mouth. His face was red as an uncooked hamburger. Then came the decisive third. Quarry battled bravely but the odds were too great. He lunged. He pushed. He kept boring forward. But each time he met a fussillade of Ali punches sledgehammer : shots that looted as if they might tear his head from ' his neck. As the two swapped blows in a corner, Ali lashed out with a straight overhand right that caught Quarry over the eye. Blood oozed. In the ensuing Vh minutes, Ali jabbed away and Quarry's face was smeared with blood when he went to his corner, a beaten man. The victory may be worth as much as SI million to All, whose fortune was depleted in his court battle to stay out of jail. Quarry's end of the purse could be near $500,000. Their exact paydays will be determined when reports are in from the various television receipts. The fight was beamed live via satellite to Europe, Australia, South America, the Far East and even Russia. It was shown on closed circuit in theaters throughout the United States and Canada, with 900,000 available seats.
