Fights Enliven Pro Action- Chiefs Tied Following Brawl By Th« Associated Press The fight game, which picked up some extra wallop a week ago ait Atlanta, is on the upswing in another heavyweight division—4lhe National Football League. A pair of brawls enlivened the NFL card Sunday, rivaling last Monday night's Muhammad Ali-Jerry Quarry set-to and playing major roles in the New York Giants' 22-10 decision over (the New York Jets and the Oakland Raiders 17-17 draw with the Kansas City Chiefs. Fran Tarkenton scrambled out of a third-quarter melee in the first regular season meeting of New York's charged-up rivals and keyed a quick striking Giant coumter-albtack that floored the Jets. A last-minute donybrook at Kansas City helped the Raiders salvage a tie on George Blanda's 48-yard field goal with three seconds to play. Elsewhere, Minnesota overpowered Detroit 30-17, Baltimore trampled Miami 35-0, San Francisco mauled Green Bay 26-10, Buffalo crushed Boston 4510, St. Louis overwhelmed Houston 44-0, Dallas beat Philadelphia 21-17, Los Angeles subdued New Orleans 30-17, Washington startled Denver 19-3, Chicago bounced Atlanta 23-14, and San Diego turned back Cleveland 2710. Cincinnati's game at Pittsburgh tonight brings the NFL season to its midway mark. The Giants trailed 10-3 in the third quarter when the Jets' defense stopped Tucker Frederickson's fourth down plunge inches short of the end zone and Tarkenton was swarmed under after taking a futile lateral from Frederickson as the whistle blew the play dead. Tarkenton came off the ground boiling mad, exchanged words with his tacklers and then squared off against Jet defensive back Earlie Thomas, a former Golden Gloves boxer. The benches emptied and several scuffles broke out before the teams were persuaded to return to football. The Giants promptly nailed Chuck Mercein for a safety and Tarkenton fired two touchdown passes in the next two minutes, turning the game around. A punch Otis Taylor denied throwing touched off the fireworks at Kansas City and ultimately cost the Chiefs a vital victory in the American Times Harold, Carroll, la. Monday, Nov. 2, 1970 Conference's Western Division race. With 1:08 to play and the Chiefs leading 17-14 on a Len Dawson to Taylor TD pass, Dawson sprinted 19 yards to the Oakland 29—and was smacked by big Ben Davidson after the whistle. A penalty flag was dropped, signifying a 15-yard stepoff against the Raiders, but when Taylor lit into Davidson, he was ejected from the game and the big-gainer nullified by an offsetting penalty against the Chiefs. The Chiefs then punted and Daryle Lamonica, racing the clock, drove Oakland upfield to set up Blanda's tying three- pointer. "The game was lost, and we came out of nowhere to tie it," said 43-year-old Blanda, whose clutch kick sent the Raiders into the division lead with a 3-2-2 record. "They got a stupid penalty and all of a sudden we get a tie and we're in first place." At Detroit, the Vikings, 6-1, broke a first-place deadlock with the Lions in the National Conference's Central Division as Gary Cuozzo threw two touchdown passes, Bobby Bryant scored on a 39-yard interception return and Fred Cox booted three field goals. Cuozzo riddled the Lions' secondary, which missed injured Lem Barney, with 13 completions in 22 attempts for 253 yards. Jim Duncan zipped 99 yards on a kickoff return for one touchdown and Ron Gardin bolted 80 yards with a punt for another, leading the Colts, 6-1, to their fifth straight vie tory. The Dolphins' second successive shutout loss dropped them two games behind the Colts in the AFC Eastern Division and ruined the homecoming of Coach Don Shula, Baltimore's former boss. John Brodie teamed with Jim Thomas on a 52-yard pass play in the third quarter to set San Francisco's go-ahead touchdown against the visiting Packers and Bruce Gossett kicked four field goals for the 49ers, atop the NFC Western Division with a 5-1-1 mark. O.J. Simpson scored on a 56- yard gallop and finished his biggest day as a pro with 123 yards in 17 carries, pacing Buffalo's romp over the Patriots at Boston. Stanford's Indians On Rose Track By The Associated Press Everything's coming up roses for the Stanford Indians and Jim Plunkett, their Mexican- American beauty quarterback, but Coach John Ralston is worried about a thorny problem called Washington.

Patrick Branch Manager Carroll Phone 712-792-4336 finance company Fort Dodge Southern California, rated 18th, was losing to California 13-10 and seeing its hopes for a fifth consecutive trip to Pasadena wiped out. Washington, meanwhile, downed 16th-ranked Oregon 2523 on Steve Weizbowski's 19- yard field goal with 40 seconds left and dropped the Ducks 1% games behind Stanford. Mathematically, Oregon, UCLA, California and Washington all have a shot at the roses but a Stanford triumph over Washington this weekend will end all that and send the Indians to Pasadena for the first time since 19S2. Ralston was asked if he thought Stanford might get too high for Washington and he snorted: "No, sir! We want 'em as high as they can get. We want to win the championship outright and we'd much raither play for the championship this week than on Nov. 21 against California." While Plunkett was passing for 210 yards and three touchdowns, the Big Ten's Rose Bowl representative began to look more and more like Ohio State. The second-ranked Buckeyes rallied to beat 20th-rated North' western 24-10, dropping the Wildcats out of a three-way tie, along with Michigan, for the lead. The Wolverines, rated fifth in The Associated Press poll, whipped Wisconsin 29-15 but are ineligible for a return trip to Pasadena this year. Texas celebrated its return to the top of the rankings with a 42-15 rout of Southern Methodist as Steve Worster rambled for 144 yards and four touchdowns. But eighth-ranked Arkansas kept pace with the Longhorns in the Southwest conference race by crushing Texas A&M 45-6. However, the Razorbacks' star runner, Bill Burnett, suffered a severe shoulder separation after scoring three touchdowns and probably will be lost for the rest of the regular season. Notre Dame, ranked third, smashed Navy 56-7 and No. 4 Nebraska maintained its one- half game lead over Kansas State in the Big Eight with a 2913 defeat of Colorado while the Wildcats edged 17th-rated Missouri 17-13. Seventh-ranked Air Force needed Craig Barry's 20-yard field goal as time ran out to nip Arizona 23-20 and Tenessee, No. 9, had no itrouble beating Wake Forest 41-7. ISU Drops Game To 29-28 Sooners Gypsum is a make plaster. rock used to (Political Advertisement) (Political Advertisement) 0 DEAH WEST Candidate for STATE REPRESENTATIVE The Candidate Interested in HOLD-THE-LINE Spending Your Vote Will Be Appreciated AMES (AP) - Iowa State's 'best' effort was a 29-28 defeat at the hands of Oklahoma Saturday, but Cyclone coach Johnny Majors still had much to rave about. "We must be the best losing team in America," Majors said 'after his team dropped its fourth straight Big Eight game of the season and eighth in a row over a two-year span in the conference. "This was our best overall game," Majors continued. "The defense played a great game an we managed to lump our offense and defense together for a good effort for a change." Oklahoma, 4-3 overall and 2-1 in the conference, had to twice come from behind and score the winning points with 2:40 left after ISU had broken a 21-21 tie on a 70-yard Dean Carlson to Otto Stowe pass play. A long pass off a reverse end around play good for 33 yards and a first down at the Iowa States 15 was the telling play in the winning drive. Three plays later Joe Wylie took a pitch back and rambled five yards for a touchdown. The same play sent Greg Pruitt over for the deciding two- point conversion and Oklahoma's tenth straight victory over the Cyclones. The daring Cyclones got back as far as the ISU 47 before Carlson 's pass intended for Stowe was picked off by John Shelley It was the Sooners' fourth pass theft of the day. Iowa State entered the game as a two-touchdown underdog, but scored the first three times it had the ball and led 21 -0 before the first 12 minutes of play had elapsed. But then the first of a num ber of freakish plays started to turn the tide toward Oklahoma. On the second time the Cyclones had the ball after the three scores, punter Ralph Bar- caz was trapped in the end zone for a safety — a very vital two points for the Sooners as time went by. "The momentum began to change on the safety," Majors said. Iowa State then went ten possessions without scoring again and by that time it was a 21-21 game. "I would cal the same play over again," noted Majors who also cited the Sooners' first pass interception which later led to first OU touchdown as decisive play. One area did not please Majors despite the fact his team toted up 300 yards total offense. "Our runing game still needs improvement, it hurt us today again," offered Majors. "And with our runing game not going well, we had to depend on our passing game a lot." The Cardinals, back home after an upset loss at New York last weekend, trounced Houston behind hot-handed Jim Hart, Who hit on 15 of 25 passes for 223 yards. After St. Louis' first shutout win in nine years, Oilers Coach Wally Lemm amounced he would step down ait the end. of the season. At Dallas, the Cowboys kept pace with St. Louis, at 5-2, in the HFC East by downing the winless Eagles on three Craig Morton scoring bombs— to Lance Rentzel for 86 and 56 yards and Bob Hayes for 40. Roman Gabriel tossed two touchdown passes as the visiting Rams wore down the Saints after being stung for two New Orleans scores in the first four minutes. The Redskins' defensive unit, led by linebacker Chris Hanburger, blanked the Broncos until the final quarter at Denver and Sony Jurgensen flipped two TD strikes to Jerry Smith. Cecil Turner, the league's top kickoff return man, broke one for a 94-yard touchdown that erased a 14-13 deficit and carried the Bears past the Falcons at Atlanta. San Diego took advantage of a pair 'of Cleveland mistakes in the second period and turned them into touchdowns within a four-minute span. Chuck Detwiler returned a fumble 25 yards for one score and Bo Scott's fumble, recovered by San Diego's Jeff Staggs, set up another Charger touchdown. The TDs gave San Diego a 1410 halftone lead and the Chargers held the Browns scoreless in the second half, wrapping up the verdict on two field goals by Mike Mercer in the final quarter. FUNNY BUSINESS By Roger Bollen EWEL, Ae&OT <VO) THIS WOMEN'S K.1B mi/o<s A Sir TOO FAR"? Resurgent Hawks Seek Aerial Help Aerial Ace Spills Drake By The Associated Press on If you are going to lose homecoming it might as well be to the best. According to Drake coach Jack Wallace, that is exactly what happened Saturday when the Bulldogs dropped a 33-13 decision to visiting Abilene Christian and passing whiz Jim Lindsey. "Abilene Christian is the best football team we played in years," Wallace said. "They do a lot of things well." But passing with Lindsey at the trigger is the Wildcats' most potent thing and Saturday Lindsey completed 27 of 57 for 402 yards and two touchdowns. He now holds five NCAA small college records—'two of which he >set against Drake. Lindsey set marks Saturday for passes thrown and completed in a career. J. L. Williams ran 16 and 39 yards for two other touchdowns as the visitors pounded Drake (5-3) for 553 yards total offense. IOWA CITY (AP) - The University of Iowa's passing game is still missing, but the Hawk- eyes found a crushing ground game and some resurgent team spirit Saturday in gaining a 1414 tie with Minnesota. The fourth quarter comeback should also buoy the team's chances in the final three games said a pleased coach Ray Nagel in the wake of the 'moral victory' Iowa was rated at least a two touchdown underdog. "The comeback and our kids' effort didn't surprise me," said Nagel, whose team is now 1-5-1. "I knew all along we were capable of playing a good game despite our record and we have three more games remaining we wild be ready for all three." The comeback from a 140 deficit and some disheartening first half breaks plus the 377 yards rushing pleased Nagel, but the five-year Hawkeye mentor was still concerned by his team's meager passing attack. "Saturday we emphasized our strong point — the runing game, but we still need more balance in our attack," Nagel offered. "So this week we will continue to try to beef up our passing game." Pre-game plans called for more passing against Minnesota. "We had planed to throw more play action passes, but it didn't work out that way," Nagel noted. "We had a lot of adversity in the first two quarters and that made us stick more with our runing game." Tim Sullivan and Levi Mitchell were the running stars for Iowa with a total of 298 yards between them. Sullivan cracked over the two Hawkeye final quarter touchdowns on runs of one and two yards. Sullivan carried ?>i) times for 161 yards — his besf game in his three-year Iowa cmv.c : r. Mitchell finished with 137 yards in 31 carries and his .'Myard scamper to the Minnesota two set up the final Hawkeye TD. Bad breaks and an inter' ception stalled Iowa in the first half, although the Hawk- eyes dominated play. "I don't think I ever saw so many things go against us early in a game," Nagel said afterwards. "That's even more of a reason to be proud of the way the kids came back. "The story of the game could be that we got down (to Minnesota) but not down on ourselves. I would say it was a winning effort on our part." An interception by the Gophers' Bill Light of a Kyle Skogman pass and a runback to the Iowa. 25 yard line set up the first Minesota score. Then as the Hawkeyes were seemingly driving down for their own score in the second quarter, Sullivan had the ball stolen by Mike White who returned it 17 yards to the Iowa 31. It was that kind of day. One of the signers of the Declaration of Independence was a clergyman—John Witherspoon of New Jersey. CHICKEN!
