Decision on Scheduling Delayed- Public's Wishes Ignored by Board: Stapleton AMES (AP) - Iowa State •Athletic Director Oky Stapleton said Tuesday night that he did not see how a small group of men on the University of Iowa athletic board can ignore the public's wishes to see an Iowa—Iowa State football game. Earlier Tuesday Samuel Fahr, chairman of the Iowa University Board in Control of Athletics, said the board has decided to delay a decision on scheduling the game with the Cyclones. • Stapleton called the move an "incredible turn of events." He said Iowa State had turned down other offers to play games for the years 1979 through 1984 because ISU felt it had a "good faith" agreement to play Iowa. Stapleton said, "Adding to my astonishment is the information that the University of Iowa is negotiating to play the University of Nebraska in the four years, 1979-82, in which they wow refuse to play Iowa State." Fahr explained the board "gave much consideration" to the matter, but finally instructed Iowa Athletic Director Chalmers (Bump) Elliott to negotiate for another Big Ten game in the future. Last week Elliott said Iowa was waiting to hear from Ohio State on a possible game for 1971. That would give Iowa 11 games in 1971— nine in the Big Ten conference. Fahr said the 12-member athletic board regretted that discussion about the possibility of an Iowa—Iowa State game in 1971 was "premature." Last year Stapleton negotiated on the renewal of the infra-state series with tihen Iowa Athleic Director Forest Evashevski. ISU president W. Robert Parks said Tuesday, "It is hard to understand how the small group of men who make up the athletic board in Iowa City can feel justified in flaunting the widespread and strongly expressed public interest in foot- Young Award Won't Add to Gibson Pay NEW YORK (AP) — The Cy Young Award voted to Bob Gibson Tuesday won't add a penny to his 1971 salary. ;.; That's because the flame- throwing St. Louis right- hander has already agreed Jo a $150,000 contract — probably a record major league salary. Gibson became the third man in history to win the Young Award as the top pitcher in his league more than once since its inception in 1956. Denny McLain and Sandy Koufax were the oth- & repeaters. -Gibson, 23-7 for the Cardinals after winning only two games in the first six weeks of the 1970 season, received 23 of the 24 first place votes in balloting by tlje Baseball Writers Association of America. The other first place ballot went to San Francisco's Gaylord Perry, who finished second to Gibson in the voting. Gibson, the only hurler named on all 24 ballots, totaled 118 points. Perry finished with 51 and Ferguson Jenkins of the Chicago Cubs had 16. Gibson's slow start—he was 2-3 in late May—stirred whispers that the Cardinal ace might be on the way down. But he wiped them out with strings of 10 and seven consecutive victories and went over the 20-victory mark for the third straight year. "I was as strong in 1970 as I was two years ago when I won the award," said Gibson, who celebrates his 35th birthday on Monday. "I had no arm trouble, but I get more tired every year. The older you get, the harder it by dale barton J.ast Fling— The coin-flipping forecaster had another good whack a week ago with eight out of 10 and raised the season average to 71 per cent on 62 correct and 25 minus. c 'There are nine games on this week's card and one game next Wednesday. Somewhere on the schedule there will be upsets of a sort but probably not as shocking as last week's Lake City win over Harlan or Coon Rapids over Exira. Those were the stumbling blocks for the so-called experts, and the Eagles have been this column's season-long stumbling block. Choices for the last goaround: Kuemper over Atlantic — The unbeaten Atlantic Trojans have not played as tough a schedule as the Knights. The Trojans are light, not exceptionally fast, and they depend on an excellent passing game to put points on the board. No club has thrown well against the Knights. Add the fact Kuemper's ground-'em- out ball control game has Trojan Coach Bob Younger in a dither wondering how he will manage to get the ball enough times to score. Jefferson over Carroll — The Rams apparently are healthy for the first time this year and are up for what they consider their traditional closing game. Jefferson's defense has been tough in a season in which they have won one, tied one and lost six. Carroll has been hurt by key injuries and as a consequence is in another revamped line-up.

The game is at Harlan, and the Cyclones will rebound. Lake City over Denison — The Eagles are in a first place tie in the loop, and pride will carry them to a win over a Monarch team that has come on strong. Lake City has too much balance for Denison. At long last the forecaster climbs aboard the Lake City band wagon. Perry over Audubon — The Blue Jays are finishing strong. Audubon is a club that is still a year or two away. Perry has the offensive power to put points on the board and a defensive unit to hold the Wheelers in check. Manning over Ar-We-Va — The powerful Bulldogs simply have too much of everything. This is the game in which the Manning non-starters hope they can get in and show up the regulars. Coon Rapids ' over East Greene — The Crusaders, tagged by opposing coaches as a better club than the record indicates, have shown their potential in the win over Exira. With exciting Joe Yeager at the controls, this is a good chance to end the season on a winning note. Criswold ever Exira — The Vikings were looking forward to this game when they sprawled before Coon Rapids last week. The shock of that setback might not wear off in time to regroup. Greenfield ever Guthrie Center — The Greenfield team usually looks forward to this one and perennially gives the Tigers a rough time. Guthrie is young and Greenfield isn't. Glidden-Ralston ever Carroll — This is the area wrap-up next Wednesday night in Carroll. The unbeaten Wildcats, Coon Valley champions, have an open date this weekend and 'plenty of time to prepare for the Tigers. The explosive Wildcat offense, equally effective on the ground and in the air, looks to be too much for the Tigers to handle. ball competition between Iowa and Iowa State." A renewal of the intra-stat* series has been urged by Gov. Robert D. Ray 'and the last session of the Iowa General Assembly went on record in April as favoring a game in 1971. The Assembly's resolutions said lowans overwhelmingly favored such a game, that it would bring "substantial financial revenue" which would remain in the state and that a game would enhance the two schools' image in the eyes of Iowa high school atihletes and thus tend to keep them in the state. The Iowa board said one reason for holding up talks of the intra-state game was that all Big Ten teams will be required to play eight conference teams by 1973 and by 1983 a nine — game conference schedule will be required. The main reason given for an Iowa — Iowa State game is the revenue it would produce for both schools. Carroll Daily Times Herald SPORTS Wednesday, November 4, 1970 Page 11 However Fahr said, "lowans should not be put in the position of chosing between teams, both of which more often than not are in an underdog position in their respective conferences, supported less well than their opponents and competiting for players in the same area." He added, "In any case the Iowa board is concerned that monetary profits from such games might very well in the long run be more than offset by the ill-will that can result from what is perceived by some as that most unpleasant squabble of all — the family fight." Iowa and Iowa State have not met in football since 1934 when their series was discontinued because of mounting "bad feelings." The two state schools played 24 times between 1894 and 1934 with Iowa holding a 16—8 lead. The Cyclones won the last game with a 31-6 victory. is." Gibson was one of the few bright spots for the Cardinals, who finished fourth in the National League's East Division. In all, 10 pitchers received mention from the 24 voters—two in each NL city. Reliever Dave Giusti of Pittsburgh and Jim Merritt, Cincinnati's 20-game winner, tied for fourth place with eight points and then came Cincinnati's Gary Nolan (5) Tom Seaver of the New York Mets, the 1969 winner, (4), Cincinnati reliever Wayne Granger (3) Carl Morton of Montreal (2), and Luke Walker of Pittsburgh (1). Gibson won his first Cy Young Award in 1968 when McLain took the AL award. McLain shared the 1969 AL award with Baltimore's Mike Cuellar, prompting a change in the voting procedure. This year, three pitchers were named on each ballot with first place worth five points, second place three points and third place one. Koufax is the only three-time winner in the history of the Cy Young Award, having won in in 1963, 1965 and 1966. Gibson, always a workhorse, started 34 games and pitched 294 innings for the Cards last season. He struck out 274 batters, walked 88 and compiled a 3.12 earned run average in going over the 20-win mark for the fifth time in his 11-year career. His 23 victories last season marked Gibson's single season high. He has a career record of 190-117 with an ERA under 3.00 and a 7-2 World Series log. The American League Cy Young winner will be named later this week. Flood Agrees to Play But Clause Stays NEW YORK (AP) — Curt Flood has agreed to play center field for the Washington Senators next season under a contract that contains the reserve clause he sat out a Whole year to protest. The decision, expected sine* last week when Flood indicated he would sign with ithe Senators, came out of a meeting here between Flood, Washington owner Bob Short and baseball commissioner Bowie Kuhn. An announcement released simultaneously in Philadelphia and Washington said the Senators were giving the Phillies veteran utility man Greg Goossen and rookies Gene Martin, an outfielder- first baseman, and pitcher Jeff Terpko for the acquisition of Flood's contract. While Flood's celebrated $4.1 million anti-trust suit against baseball and the reserve oafluse system remains in the courts, his future on the field now seems certain for at least the 1971 baseball season. At Washington, he joint one of baseball's other problem players, pitcher Deny McLain, another recent Short acquisition in a multi-player trade with Detroit. Money appeared to be the main reason Flood ended his holdout, His contract with the Senators reportedly wiU call for a salary of about $110,000 a year, and Flood said last week "'like everybody else, I've had some business reverses and I need the Money." However, he added, 'I still think the reserve clause stinks." Kuhn had said earlier any contract Flood signed would have to contain baseball's trai- -tipnal reserve clause, which binds a player to one team unless he is traded, released or quits. Flood claimed when he instituted his suit against baseball 'that the clause made players "slaves." Stanford Continues Run for the Roses NEW YORK (AP) - Stanford continues its run for the roses Saturday against Washington in an attempt to become the first team in five years other than Southern Cal to represent the Pacific-8 in the Rose Bowl on New Year's Day. Will the Indians make it? All they need is one more conference victory. Stay tuned and find out. Other attractive matchups include Louisiana State-Alabama, Houston-Missisippi and Air Force-Oregon. Washington at Stanford—Two of the top passers in ithe country hook up in this one. Stanford's Jim Plunkett has completed 132 of 250 for 1,985 yards and 12 touchdowns with 14 interceptions. Sony Sixkiller, Washington's Cherokee chucker, is 133 of 252 for 1,612 yards, nine TDs and 19 interceptions. Pasadena, 'here comes ... Stanford. Louisiana State vs. Alabama at Birmingham—With last Saturday off, LSU's Charlie Mc- C1 e n d o n scouted Alabama against Misissippi State "and I'm kind of sorry I did," he says. In quarterback Scott Hunter, halfback Johny Musso, etc., Alabama has what Bear Bryant calls his best time since 1966, which produced an 11-0 record. The pick, thanks to a stingy defense that will remind Brant of his glory days, is . . . Louisiana State. Houston at Missisippi—M&M equals Manning .and ... Mississippi.
