Passing Game Falters- Hawks On Downward Spiral IOWA CITY (AP) - Former All-America Iowa tackle Alex Karras says football is a game of embarrassments, and so it must have seemed Saturday as the University of Iowa lost a 370 Big Ten game to Michigan. Losses are not new to Iowa — five in six games — but the way the Spartans (2-4) manhandled the punchless Hawkeyes was disturbing. Coach Ray Nagel even had his usual rosy outlook clouded some by the defeat. "Success breeds success and failure breeds failure," Nagel noted in giving the sad Iowa scene a little philosphical tinge and seeming to say things are on a downward spiral. The gam* statistics were bleak proof of Iowa's futility, especially on offense where it gained only 109 total yards, never got into Michigan State territory until the fourth quar­ ter — and then on a fumble — and had only eight first downs. "Our quarterbacks try so hard, but they just haven't been able to do the things we need to generate an offense," said Nagel in looking at the Hawkeye offense output that has scored just 51 points in six games. "We have to have a good passing game to set up our running game." Against Michigan State, the Hawkeyes had neither. The 55 yards rushing and 54 passing was the leanest output by an lowan team since 1965 when Iowa managed only 86 yards in losing 35-0 to Michigan State. That was Jerry Burn's 1-9-0 team — and his last. Iowa's defense didn't have one of its better days either — surrendering 539 yards and at least a touchdown in every quarter.

Patrick Branch Manager Carroll Phone 712-792-4336 finance company Fort Dodge downs in the third quarter Sunday as the Cowboys bounced back from their darkest National Football League hour to whip Stram's Kansas City Chiefs 27-16. Hayes, making his first start of the season, turned a Craig Morton pass into an 89-yard scoring burst minutes after Foster, a hard-running rookie, sped 47 yards for a touchdown. "Those playes were the difference," said Stram, whose Super Bowl champs were jeered by a home crowd of 51,158 as they absorbed their third setback in six games. The victory gave Dallas a 4-2 mark and a share of first place in the National Conference's Eastern Division—one week after the Cowboys took a 54-13 pounding from Minnesota. "We didn't do anything different against Kansas City," Cowboys Coach Tom Landry insisted. "We just played football. We didn't play football against Minnesota." Fran Tarkenton's five touchdown passes led the New York Giants past St. Louis 35-17, dropping the Cardinals into a tie with Dallas for the NFC East lead. Elsewhere, 43-year-old George Blanda fired Oakland to a 31-14 victory over Pittsburgh; Baltimore drubbed Boston 27-3; Cleveland pounded Miami 28-0; Washington blanked Cincinnati 20-0; Detroit shaded Chicago 16-10; Green Bay topped Philadelphia 30-17; San Francisco edged Denver 19-14; Atlanta trimmed New Orleans 32-14; Buffalo nipped the New York Jets 10-6 and San Diego played Houston to a 31-31 standoff. Minnesota entertains Los Angeles tonight in a nationally- televised clash of NFL power­ houses. The Cowboys, beaten by Kansas City 13-0 in a pre-season exhibition, spotted the Chiefs an early touchdown, then limited them to three Jan Stenerud field goals the rest of the way. Thomas, shouldering the running load after Calvin Hill went out with a muscle spasm, scored the go-ahead touchdown on a short plunge after Mike Clark booted a pair of field goals. The 220-pound Thomas tallied the decisive touchdown on a draw play before Hayes took Morton's pass on the Dallas 45 and raced the rest of the way for the wrap-up score. Tarkenton sent the Giants to their third straight victory, snapping a four-game St. Louis winning streak in the process, with the first five-touchdown spree of his career. He completed all of his 10 pass attempts in the first half and was 15-for-18 over-all, with two scoring strikes to rookie Bob Tucker and one each to Aaron Thomas, Clifton McNeil and Don Herrmann. Blanda came off the Oakland bench after Daryle Lamonica was sidelined by a pinched nerve in his back and riddled the Steelers with three touchdown passes. He also booted a field goal and four extra points. The Colts spilled Joe Kapp seven times for losses and picked off three of his passes while Johnny Unitas split the Patroits' secondary for three scores. The Colts' fourth straight victory, coupled with Miami's loss to Cleveland, sent them into sole possession of first place in the American Conference's Eastern Division. Bill Nelsen passed for two Cleveland scores and linebacker Dale Lindsey rambled 56 yards with a pass interception for another as the AFC's Central Division leaders battered the Dolphins before a crowd of 75,313— largest ever to see a Miami regular season game.

Monday, Oct. 26, 1970 FUNNY BUSINESS By Roger Bollen Big Plays Net Drake Win, 28-24 By The Associated Press The 'big play' was THE play for Drake Saturday. Final game statistics showed the Bulldogs second in most categories against Western Illinois, but the scoreboard read 28-24 Drake at the final gun. It was the winners second straight win and left 5-2 for the season. Two long Dennis Redmond-to- Rex Perry passes accounted for two TDs and Jerry Heston rumbled 70 yards for another 'bomb' type six-pointer as Drake rallied to fend off Western (43). "The big play really did it for us," enthused Bulldog coach Jack Wallace in a wry understatement. "This is the first time we didn't out play the opposition, but still won. "You need a victory like that once in a while. Especially after you have been on the road for four weeks and played two straight homecomings." Sophomore Redmond finished with only seven completions in 25 passes, but that was good enough for two vital touchdowns and 226 yards. The first was a 77-yarder to Perry in the first quarter and the other a 61-yard- er to Perry with 5:22 to play that pushed Drake ahead 27-24. Heston's running provided the other scores. In addition to his 70-yard jaunt that brought Drake close at 24-20, he crashed over from one yard out in the second quarter for a score. The freshman from Ankeney finished with 143 yards in 20 carries, the fourth time in seven games he has surpassed the 100- yard mark. Final statistics showed Drake outgained 428 to 367 and out-first downed 22 to 11. Western's Bog Majka logged 395 yards on 28 of 46 passes for a school record. Drake defenders, however, picked off two of his passes — setting a one-season school record of eight — and they both stopped Western drives in the final quarter. The Bulldogs are home to 12th- rated Abileen Christian next Saturday for homecoming. The vistors (5-2) dropped a 28 to 23 contest Saturday to Arkansas State College. The passing attack was especially ineffective as sophomore Kyle Skogman and senior Roy Bash had only four completions in 28 tries with three interceptions tagged on. Two of the early interceptions set up Spartan TDs and the winners held a 17-0 lead at halftime. "It was a depressing effect when interceptions set up touchdowns," said Nagel. "Our offensive failures were just putting too much pressure on the defense." Nagel however, refused to single out any player for the drab performance — and the worst Iowa start in four years. "I'm not trying to knock any individual player, because they are all trying hard, but we just can't seem to get our offense untracked. "I can't put my finger on it, except we may be trying so hard that we tighten up," Nagel noted. "Another thing though is we are not reckless enough on offense." Some solace for Nagel and Iowa could come from Spartan coach Duffy Daugherty who said his team played one of its best defensive games. The Spartans had just come off playing some pretty tough competition too — Notre Dame (No. 3), Ohio State (No. 1) and Michigan (No. 5). Michigan State was using all newcomers at quarterback too, but that didn't inhibit its offense. The trio threw for 245 yards on 13 of 27 passes with only one interception. Levi Mitchell led Iowa's meager ground game with 29 yards, but it took him 18 carries. Tim Sullivan added 24 more in eight carries. It was the second time this season Iov/a has been shut out and third time it has failed to score a touchdown. Only one other team in the last 25 years — the 1966 Nagel squad — has scored fewer points in its first six games. That teams had 49 points at this juncture and finished 2-8. Iowa is on the road next Saturday against Minnesota at Minneapolis. The Gophers are 1-2 in the Big Ten and 2-4 overall after a 31-13 setback Saturday to Michigan.

RICHARD BAUMHOVER ARTHUR NEU Wednesday, Oct. 28 8:00 P. M. Carroll Elks Lodge Evans Sets State Mark ADEL — Robin Evans, former Carroll High track star, set a new state record in the Girls State cross-country run here Saturday. Miss Evans, now enrolled in Manilla High School, covered the lV'a mile distance in 8:36. That wiped out the old record of 8:41 set by Lake City's Chris Gemberling in 1969. Manilla shared the team title with BGM (Brooklyn) as Miss Evans' teammates Meg Hennessey and Gail Ahrenholtz finished second and seventh respectively. BGM's top finisher was Tracy Heishman in fourth, but the team placed Sheila Simmons fifth and Susan Stone ninth. Manilla and BGM wound up with 36 points each. The top runners included: 1. Robin Evans, Manilla; 2. Meg Hennessey, Manilla; 3. Patty Neppel, Lincoln Central; 4. Tracy Heishman, BGM; 5. Sheila Simmons, BGM; 6. Donna Gibson, Havelock- Plover; 7. Gail Ahrenholtz, Manilla; 8. Deb Spor, Goldfield; 9. Susan Stone, BGM; and 10. Ann Kimm, Norway. AMES (AP) — "We made enough mistakes to lose three games." That is how Iowa State coach Johnny Majors summed up the Cyclones' bumbling 24-10 defeat Saturday by Kansas in Big Eight Conference action and he couldn't have been more right. Ten times the Cyclones coughed up the ball on turnovers — five fumbles, four pass interceptions and a partially blocked punt after a high center snap. "You can't give any team in this conference that many opportunities and still expect to come away with a win," said Majors as his team dropped its third straight conference game and fell to 3-3 overall. "We gave the ball up at the five, eight and 16 yardlines the three times they scored touchdowns and you simply can't expect your defense to hold in situations like that," noted Majors. "It was the most frustrating day of my life," added Majors, who despite the loss praised his defense. "You certainly can't fault our defense, it played a hechuva game, it went out after them and I would have to say it was one of its best game despite the score." Statistically, Majors had a point. ISU outgained Kansas 318 to 257 and had five more first down. But the Cyclones' errors were fatal. With six minutes to play, the battered Cyclones were tied 1010. But two key plays by KU linebacker Gary Davenport in the next four minutes turned the game around and let the Jayhawks take their fifth win in seven games. Reggie Shoemake's blocked punt that was recovered on the ISU 15 after traveling just three yards was the first Kansas break. Davenport had got a hand on Shoemake's hasty kick and a play later John Riggins bolted for a TD. Iowa State fought back, however, driving to the KU 30 before error number ten in the form of a Davenport interception killed the drive. Davenport took the stray George Amundson pass — one of four intercepted — back to the ISU nine. Kansas scored the clinching touchdown a couple of plays later on Riggins' three- yard run. "We just had too many critical errors from our center, quarterback and running back personnel in one game," added Majors, whose team played without number one center Dave Pittman and got only limited service from top quarterback Dean Carlson. "We need more consistency in our offense," said Majors. "Four times we were down close and came away with nothing because of mistakes. Another thing that really bothered me was that of our fumbles three of them came because of poor ball handling." The Cyclones two scores came when they put together long drives — the first an 80-yard march in the first quarter capped by a 29-yard Amundson to Dave McCurry pass. The other went 71 yards and was climaxed when Reggie Shoemake booted a 30-yard field goal for a 10-10 tie. "The thing you have to worry about now," Majors noted, "is that the mistakes we made can become contagious and carry over from week to week." The third-year coach, however, is far from discouraged. "We'll just have to keep stressing the areas where we made the mistakes and hope that we can improve," Majors added. "And maybe someday we'll run into somebody who wants to play give-way to us for a change." A bright spot for Iowa State was Otto Stowe who had five pass receptions for 87 yards to set an all-time ISU pass catch mark with 101. The speedy split end is also within 140 yards of the career pass yardage mark. Iowa State returns home to meet Oklahoma Saturday in a homecoming game. BUY NOW!
