n wins MOM Idaho Football Now 'College Division' .Bllt I; 7TT .oaseiDal titliliyiinl IJiis J. Neil (Skip) Stahley presumably is still pushing the project to put Portland State in the collegiate major leagues, which is just a little ironic at this point. . 1 Over in Moscow, the one in Idahothey are now remembering Skip as the fellow who made a minor leaguer bfxthe University of Idaho. That, at least, was the infeferjce in a wire service reporftois week. Vandal 'athletic management learned to iis dismay that the Football Writers Association, the law in this case, had decided to "drop Idaho into what is called the -"college division" forMootball purposes. Criteria is the schedule. For ma jorv ranking, a school must play at least half its games against other major college, or "university division" teams. Idaho, alas, does not this year. Fresno Slate, Idaho State, Montana, Montana State, Weber-State ,and 'Parsons, all minors on the card, have dragged the. Vandals into the bushes for the nonce. Naturally, that didn't digest well with Vandal faithful of long memories and -short tempers. Some can Mill remember when the yandals once whipped UCLA more convincingly than, they did Whitman and wouldn't 'even acknowledge the existence of Idaho State. And now they're calling them "college division," just like General' Beadle State, Gallaudet and Ursinusr among others. J 1 . ' " Well, Paul.Ostyn, who now sits in Skip's old athletic directorship, 'isn't going to let them hang that shame on his head. "The football schedules from 1967 through 1970," said Ostyn, "were made by a previous administration." He could probably talk plainer than that, but didn't figure it was necessary. Victims of Circumstance In fairness to Stahley, it must be noted that there was a brief and immediately more previous administration than his own at Idaho. An innocent bystand- er named John C Thomas, who had battled the athletic budget and sold tickets for a time, was elevated to acting athletic directorship in 1964 following Stahley 's defection to USC and before - Ostyn's appointment 11 months later. But it is highly doubtful that Thomas dabbled in schedule - making, particularly since collegiate slates at that level are sometimes drawn up as much as five or six years in advance.' Of course, whoever put together the 1967 slate was a victim of circumstance. The Vandals had aligned themselves with the Big Sky Conference in 1964 and were committed to scheduling inside the league as soon as openings were available. Openings obviously had to follow two - year packs with the likes of Washington, Oregon State and San Jose, among others. . The rub came when others of the Big Sky did not in the meantime enhance their own schedules sufficiently to qualify for major rankings. Weber State, for instance, is still trafficking with the likes of Northern Arizona and Colorado Western, among others. Idaho State meets minors like South Dakota State and. Hawaii and both play Stahley's own PSC' f Fresno is a fringe area minor leaguer whose schedule right now is probably tougher than many majors, but the Football Writers just won't buy San Fernando, Cal Poly and Santa Clara yet. v Actually, the lot of them, Idaho included, are sorely misplaced in the so - called college division. They are all awesome in-betweens, capable of knocking the knobs off many of the university divisionites and certainly more potent than the ordinary small college entry. . - As this tourist has suggested in the past, the two-division system is clearly antiquated by the nature of enrollments and athletic policies across the land today and the Football Writers would do well to consider more meaningful classifications along the. lines of those designated for organized baseball. Seeking Their Level In any case, it is to be hoped the Vandals and their faithful do not smart unduly over the drop in status. It may be only temporary, and-even if it isn't, Idaho history is, rich in respectable resistance. The Vandals of yore were never much for records, but 'neither were they given to crying "uncle" in the old and tough Pacific Coast Conference, where they campaigned between . 1922 and its dissolution i 1958-59. ; Over that spanthey managed a mild 32-122-5 "conference record, but not many of their confreres ever looked upon their visits to Moscow as a token appearance. And- remarkably, Vandal records during the PCC years were generally better than those of the period immediately following the break-up. Those years, in fact, may have been the start of something small in the way of eventual classification. In 1959 and 1960, the independent Vandals were able to whip only Montana and Hawaii' while losing "18 times in Stahley's last two years as coach. And if Dee Andros brought them back somewhat in the next three seasons (9-17-1) and actually put the first winning season on the book in 24 years, he did it with the help of some distinct level-seeking. Idaho's, five wins (against four losses) in 1963 were scored against Fresno, Pacific, San Jose, Idaho State and Utah, hardly certified titans of the . game. In current company, the Vandals could make it the second winning year In 23 and if they are neat about it, maybe nobody will notice their status is leaking. Klamath Rom KLAMATH FALL.. - If Woodburn's junior American Legion team appears a little shell-shocked whan it takes the field hre tonight against Klamath Falls, there's a reason. Klamath took the Post 49 team to the woodshed, 19-1, last night in Woedburn. But Coach Bill Croco and his Valley League champions suspect that might be exactly what the doctor ordered. The loss left them no worse than even 1-1 in the best-ef-five state championship series and there U . no doubt it took a heap of pressure off their backs. Woodburn had just completed a pair of playoff series with David Douglas and Portland Madison that had gone the distance And the pressure was on. It let go with a whoosh last night when Klamath banged 10 hits and profited from eight Woodburn errors in the runaway The visitors scored rix runs in the first inning and eight more in the fourth. Mike Keck, an all-purpose star athlete for KF High, completed the coup with a four- ijjjpin Hani njt i maw ii nrrr; "i1 ' -"1 T' i'i I f" n 1 i 11 :-. Je'Vu!aBJy , u ?

The rollicking Redbirds, flying along with a 9Vz game National League lead -on the wing, reached their largest bulge of the season the hard way Monday wnight, scoring thrice in the last of the ninth to beat the Chicago Cubs 6-5. It's been going that way all year .for the Cardinals, who haven't been out of the top spot since June 17. But the Mets haven't had a night like Monday's since the Fourth of July fireworks they lit under Juan Marichal. This time, the Mets finally set off the long-burning fuse under Larry Jackson as they clipped the wings of the Philadelphia right-hander 8-3 for the first time in their history after 18 losses. In the only other NL games, Mike McCormick won his 16th game, stopping Atlanta on seven hits as San Francisco won 6- 2, and Willie StargelFs run-scoring single in a 'three-run eighth carried Pittsburgh by Cincinnati MARIS STARS Once again, it was Roger Maris, the Yankee castoff, who sent the Cardinals soaring with an assist from Cubs' right fielder Ted Savage, an ex-Cardinal. Maris, who tripled home two earlier runs and scored a third, singled in the tying run with one out in the ninth and the winning marker scored when Savage fumbled the hit. Savage had been a hero until then' after he capped Chicago's three-run fifth inning with a run-scoring safety. Ron Santo's 26th homer leading off the ninth hit, 16-strikeout effort. Now the series 'moves to this city for two games, and if another is needed to crown a champion, the teams will return to Woodburn. Croco has named Tom Crowe to face the explosive Klamaths tonight, while Greg Broster-hous is the likely hurler for the home team. Winner of the series will represent Oregon in regional American Legion playoffs Aug. 26-17 at Helena, Mont. Woodburn . 001 000 000 1 4 8 Klamath FaUs 601 801 30x 19 10 1 Bentley, Johnson 4.

But a walk and hits by Lou Brock and Curt Flood set up Maris, who finished the game hitting .275 with 43 runs batted in. Jack Fisher, who ruined Mar- ichal's 19-0 record against the Mets on July 4, again proved the stopper as he broke Jack son's spell with his third victory and third by the Mets over the Phillies this year. "This is the night," Fisher's teammates told him before the historical night and a couple of Philadelphia errors in a four- run fourth inning helped make it so. . . - "I knew the law of averages would catch up with Jackson sometime," Fisher said. "He wasn't pitching bad, but his defense let him down." Fisher scattered eight hits for his-eighth victory in 21 decisions as the Mets reached their long- Locals Score In BC Meet Two guys and a gal from Salem scored in the Oregon vs. British Columbia track and field meet held last weekend at Empire Stadium in Vancouver, B.C. Kugie Louis, a teacher at Chemawa Indian School, was second in the men's javelin at 221' 5". Paula Hockett, Mc-Nary High School student, put the shot ' at 35'10" to place sixth in the woman's division, and Ron Jensen, Willamette University senior, placed fourth with a shot put of 48' 4". B.C. won the final event with 3224 points, but Oregon men won their division of the meet 242 to 169, taking 15 of 20 possible events.

McCormick's performance was not as eventful as Fisher's, but it did tie him for the major league lead in games won. The Giants' left-hander, who has lost five times, yielded only seven hits and had the Braves blanked until Clete Boyer hit his 21st homer with a man on in the ninth. But it wasn't enough to overcome a three-run shot by Willie McCovey in the fourth and his sacrifice fly in a three-run third as San Francisco ended its own three-game losing streak and shattered the Braves' five-game, winning string. StargilPs second run-scoring hit of the game came off reliev er Billy McCool and pinned Cin cinnati's loss on Gary Nolan, who had a 3-1 lead and a three-hitter entering the innings The first run scored during a rundown and Matty Alou singled in the second.

When he came to the lockers of rookies Mel Farr and Nick Eddy it was something a little different. "I can't say enough about these two boys," he said. Farr and Eddy scored first quarter touchdowns to spark the Lions to a 19-17 victory over the American Football League's Buffalo Bills. "I was so tight out there," said Farr, the Lions' No. 1 draft choice. "It was the first time I returned a punt for a touchdown since my high school days," said Eddy, the Lions' No. 2 draft choice in 1966. "Once I got by the first man, I knew I had a chance for a touchdown. They're never easy, especially those last 20 yards. I felt like I was pulling a tractor."
