Biggest Tumble by Harlan FUNNY BUSINESS By Roger Bollen 4 Unbeatens Retain Prep Lead By The Associated Press Prep football playoffs are two years away in Iowa, but the season is going to have a big finish nonetheless as the top four members of The Associated Press poll clash in final games this weekend. Top-ranked Waterloo East will try for its fifth straight mythical state title Friday when it goes against No. 4 Waterloo West and No. 2 Dowling is pitted against No. ! 3 Sioux City Heelan Saturday. Those four unbeatens kept, their places in this week's poll, but a couple of upsets jumbled the rankings the rest of the way down. East made it 46 straight games without a loss in pounding Waterloo Columbus 40-0. Iowa City's 30-28 defeat of Cedar Rapids Washington vaulted the Little Hawks (7-1) into fifth from eighth and dropped Timet Herald, Carroll, la Tuesday, Nov. 3, 1970 Wash to seventh. The win also gave Iowa City the coveted Mississippi Valley title. Previously sixth-ranked Harlan (7-1) took the biggest tumble. The Cyclones dropped a 19-7 contest to unranked Lake City and fell all the way to a tie for 18th place with Clinton. Indianola, which is 8-0 for the season and a winner of 18 straight, moved up a notch to sixth after blanking Urbandale 34-0. Rounding out the top ten were Sioux City Central (7-1) in eighth and Des Moines Lincoln and Cedar Rapids Jefferson in a tie for ninth. Central gained a notch after a 12-6 win over Carroll Kuemper, while Lincoln (6-2) stayed ninth after losing only 14-8 to second-ranked Dowling. Jefferson (5-2-1) was up from 13th after belting Bettendorf Longhorns No .l for the Second Week By The Associated Press Six, five, four, three, two ... Notre Dame is moving up. One, two, three ... Ohio State is moving out. But there's still room at the top for the Texas Longhorns, who remained No. 1 for the second week in the Associated Press' college football pool Monday. Notre Dame's crack Irish troops have marched about a place a week since September, supplanting Ohio State as the No. 2 team.

The Fighting Irish's tall story doesn't impress Coaclh Ara Par- segfoian, Who insists it's a long, long time from September to November. "It (the poll) has no effect on us now," he said. "We're more interested in the polls in late November (at the end of the regular season). Notre Dame won its sixth in a row last Saturday by staggering helpless Navy 56-7, and Par- segthian was accused in some quarters of ruining up the score. But Navy Coach Rick Forzano wouldn't buy it. "It could have been much worse," said Forzano, "I talked to Ara after the game and told him I realized they could have put the ball in the air more, and that I appreciate that they didn't. He didn't run the score up. He was as fair as fair can be." Sponts writers and broadcasters around tihe country 'handed 20 first place votes to Texas for a total of 701 points, a fingertip 17-point lead over Notre Dame's 684. Ohio State had 617 in the too-elose-for-comfort race. Texas shut down quarterback Ohuck Hixson'is Magnificent Flying Machine in beating Southern Methodist 42-15 over the weekend and Ohio State slapped Northwestern 24-10. Nebraska, Michigan and Stanford stayed 4-5-6 with impressive weekend victories, Arkansas and Tenessee enach moved up a spot to seventh and eighth, Air Force slumped from seventh to ninth and Auburn rounded out the top ten.

Club 2134 A HEADY HOME RUN DENVER (AP)—Tom Grieve, outfielder for the Denver Bears, hit what old timers call the strangest home run ever seen in Mile High Stadium. Rightfielder Jim Nettles of Evansville leaped high for a long shot off Grieve's bat. The ball struck Nettles on the head and bounced into the right field stands. The fight started after Dawson ran 19 yards to the Oakland 29. Davidson jumped on Dawson, and wide receiver Otis Taylor of the Chiefs jumped on Davidson and started swinging both fists. At first, it was believed Davidson piled on Dawson after the quarterback was tackled. Films show that Dawson had not been tackled but stumbled to bhe ground when he tripped over one of his own players. When Taylor dived into Davidson, he drew a 15-yard penalty, offsetting the Davidson penalty, nullifying the play and returning the ball to the original scrimmage line. After order was restored eight or 10 minutes later, the Chief's had to kick, and the Raiders moved to Kansas City's 41-yard line on Daryle Lamonica's passing. With three seconds left, George Blanda tied the game with a 48-yard field goal. The game's outcome was extremely important. Oakland's tie lifted it into first place in the American Football Conference's West Division. A Kansas City victory would have elevated bhe Chiefs into a tie for first with Denver. As it turned out, Kansas City remained in third place. 35-0. Unbeaten Atlantic headed the second ten followed by another 8-0 team — Chariton. Atlantic gained a place by rolling to a 42-7 triump over Red Oak and Chariton moved from 17th on the strength of a 36-8 defeat of Albia. Two perfect 8-0 teams, Webster City and Storm Lake, were big gainers among the second ten. Webster City moved to 14th from 19th after a 22-8 decision over Iowa Falls and finishes it season Friday against 17th-rated Ames. Storm Lake took over 16th after being among the other team receiving votes last week. The Tornadoes blanked previously unbeaten Emmetsburg 26-0 last Friday. Unbeatens Oelwein (7-0-1), Treynor (8-0) and Waco Olds -0) headed the eight teams that received pol votes but did not rank among the top 20 teams.

Matuszak is Free on Bond COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) -John Matuszak, 20, a former University of Missouri football player, is free on $500 bond following his arraignment on a charge of felonious assault.

"When I got to the National Football League I saw players fed, at an astonishing rate, not only steroids but also amphetamines and bar- bituates," says Dave Meggy- esy, a former linebacker for the St. Louis Cardinals. "A lot of NFL trainers do more dealing in drugs than an average junkie." Meggyesy's explosive statements are made in the latest issue of Look Magazine, which is running abstracts of Meggye­ sy's new book entitled "Out Of Their League." Meggyesy, who formerly played at Syracuse University, quit pro football because he said it was "dehumanizing." He said he had been offered a $35,000 contract to play with the Cardinals this season but turned it down because of the brutality of the sport. "Now, after playing for 14 years, 1 can't really say if there is any basic worth to the game," he said. "I can't separate the game from the payoffs-approval, money, adulation." Discussing the drug problem, Meggyesy said, "There are pro teams that dispense amphetamines and barbituates like penny candy." He said he first became disillusioned with football when he played at Syracuse University. "One of the big shocks of my freshman year was finding out that a lot of the guys were getting paid under the table," he said. He said arrangements were made for him to pick up S30 a week in a brown manila envelope. Other players got more, he added. Under National Collegiate Athletic Association regulations, an athlete is permitted to receive only payment for tuition, board, books and $i5 a month for laundry. sent to the team physician who is usually more concerned with getting the athlete back into action than anything else. This reversal of priorities leads to unbelievable abuses." At Syracuse, Chancellor John Corbally, Jr., and Head Coach Ben Schwartzwalder declined comment. In New York, Don Weiss, NFL public relations director, said: "We have no interest whatever in promoting the sale of Meggyesy's book." See Upturn in Farm Machinery Sales Next Year DES MOINES (AP) - Tht president of Massey-Ferguson, a farm equipment manufacturer, says farm machinery sales should improve in North America next year . John E. Mitchell, in an industry forecast, said the outlook was based on improved farm income, higher grain prices,-a reduction in interest rates, a new farm program and increase general economic activity. "The downturn in sales which began in early 1968 now appears to have reached the bottom Of the cyclical trough, and sales could show some slight improvement in 1971," he said. "When a player is injured," Meggyesy also charged, "he is Californian Visits t Auburn Friends (Times Herald News Service) AUBURN - Mrs. Vina Syl- cester, Oakland, Calif, spent a few days with Auburn friends.
