Critical Schedule For Pro Teams NEW YORK (AP) - The National Football League's weekend program includes nine games which will have a bearing on first place—and that makes it a critical schedule. First place, however, is something this pro picker would have trouble locating. Last week's picks turned up a 7-5-1 record for 15-9-2 over-all—and the jitters with so many critical games scheduled. The key ones are Minnesota at Washington, Dallas at New York Giants, Cleveland at Oakland, Denver at San Diego, San Francisco at Chicago, Atlanta at Los Angeles, Detroit at New Orleans, Boston at St. Louis and Houston at Kansas City. Here, theoretically, is how it will all turn out (Sunday games unless otherwise noted): Minnesota 31, Washington 21 —Vikings lead NFC Central and have allowed only 56 points in seven games. Redskins' defense improving, but Vikings playing as if they're invincible with Gary Cuozzo taking firm hold at quarterback. Dallas 27, New York Giants 24—Giants, one back of Cowboys and Cardinals, suffer letdown after emotional victory over crosstown rival Jets. And the Cowboys won't pick any fights. What'M Fran Tarkenton, the Giants' quarterback, think of now? Oakland 28, Cleveland 21— Speaking of fights, the Raiders will get one from the Browns, but rookie tight end Ray Chester gives Daryle Larhonica too many weapons. Besides, Browns may be without Leroy Kelly. Raiders lead AFC West, Browns AFC Central. San Francisco 38, Chicago 10—NFC Western leading 49ers take to the road and maul Bears behind quarterback John Brodie, having a great season. Chicago hanging in there without Gale Sayers but Cecil Turner can't return a kickoff for a TD every game. San Deigo 21, Denver 20—The Chargers, with Dick Post back in the line-up, now have the running strength to upend the Broncos, who have been slipping and trail Oakland by .029 percentage points in AFC West. Los Angeles 35, Atlanta 24— Rams have to keep winning to keep up with 49ers in NFC West, but may find the Falcons tougher than expected. Falcon quarterback Bob Berry will have to be careful against a front four that leads the NFC in dumping the passer. Detroit 31, New Orleans 14— The Lions, now trailing Vikings by full game in NFC Central, could have letdown after tough battle with Minnesota, but Saints are a good team to let down against. J. D. Roberts makes his debut as head coach for New Orleans. St. Louis 42, Boston 7—Cardinals tied with Cowboys in NFC East and Patriots are going through another upheaval with Coach Clive Rush replaced by John Mazur. St. Louis sent Coach Wally Lemm reeling in 44-0 victory over Houston last week. Kansas City 28, Houston 13— Chiefs haven't exactly been a ball of fire this season, but Ed Podolak seems to give the running game more steam every week. Super Bowl Chiefs 3-3-1 and can't afford another defeat. Miami 17, Philadelphia 14— This may be the Eagles' best shot to win one this season, but here's a guess the Dolphins will bounce back after two successive shutouts. New York Jets 24, Pittsburgh 20—Al Woodall coming on as Jets' quarterback. Pitt glamor- guy Terry Bradshaw barking at ciub now. That doesn't help. Buffalo 28, Cincinati 21—O.J. Simpson coming off his best ground gaining performance for Bills while Bengals, weakened by injuries, having trouble scoring. Mike Houlihan Add Conservation Officers Fish, Game Violations Rise Houlihan Out With Injury Wayne (Neb.) State's football team, uncommonly free of injuries this season, lost a player in each of the last two games, both with knee troubles. Gone for the year is three- lettered senior Mike Houlihan of Carroll, who suffered serious knee damage in last Saturday's game with Peru. He had surgery Monday. At mid-week Coach Del Srolrenberg said the replacement for Houlihan at offensive tackle still was a question. In fact, he said, there is no substitute to equal Houlihan, who was regarded by the coaching staff as a possible pro prospect. Injured the previous week in the Kearney game was junior starting quarterback Marty Going of Tekamah, Neb. He did not play last Saturday, but is able to walk this week and may be ready for action against Southwest Minnesota State Saturday afternoon (1:30 in the Wayne Stadium). By Craig Wagner (Drake University Journalism Student) (Distributed by Iowa Daily Press Assn.) DES MOINES — The sharp rise in the number of fish and game law violations in Iowa is related to the "growing tendency to disregard laws" on the part of the public, according to an Iowa Conservation Commission officer. The number of Iowa fish and game violations has tripled in the past 11 years, according to Keneth Kakac, superintendent of fee Fish and Game Officers [ Section of the Iowa Conservation Commission here. Last year was a record- breaking year for violations, with 3,407 adult violations and 731 juvenile violations. This figure is well above the 1959 adult violation count of about 1,400, Kakac said. He added that three officers have been added to the section in the past 11 years to combat increasing violations. The commission's 1969 annual report showed the most commonly broken law that year was the "loaded and assembled gun in car" regulation with 842 adult violations. Kakac said most of the regulations are broken out of negligence and disregard on the part of sportsmen. He added that hunters, fishermen and trappers receive a summary of the Iowa law when they purchase their licenses. The fish and game officer superintendent said his officers are catching more viola- FUNNY BUSINESS By ROGER BOLLEN Iowa, Indiana Evenly Matched for Dad's Day Game Saturday IOWA CITY (AP) — More late season blooming for the Hawkeyes? That will be the question Saturday when Iowa hosts Indiana in a Big Ten game here that will be a match of what on paper would have to be called the conference's two have-littles.

Copyright Iowa fakes a 1-5-1 overall | mark into the game after last week's 14-14 tie with Minnesota, while Indiana is 1-6 coming off a 32-7 loss to Michigan State. Neilier team has been wowing opponents with their offense. "I think Indiana is a very good football team that has hurt itself with mistakes," Nagel said in sizing up the Hoosders. "They have committed 33 turnovers to date and if they eliminate them they could be very tough." But Nagel is also pleased with the renewed vigor his team showed last week in roaring back to tie Minnesota and dominating the game statistically. "We dominated the game," Nagel asserted. "I don't think I've ever had a football team dominate a game like we did and only come up with a tie." Iowa had its best showing on offense (402 yards) and did its best defensive job—surrendering only 190 yards, compared to an average of 428 yards prior to the game. But errors early put Iowa down and Tim Sullivan had to blast for two late touchdowns to salvage the 14-14 tie. Most of Iowa's offense-377 yards—came on the ground against Minnesota thanks to Sullivan and Levi Mitchell and it might be the same way against Indiana. "We want to continue to improve our ground game, but we still need an effective passing game to have a diversified offense," Nagel said. Nagel has selected senior Roy Bash to start at quarterback Saturday in pl'ace of Kyle Skogman, a sophomore who has started the last four games. Bash ran for 37 yards against Minnesota and was two of four passing for 24 yards as he alternated with Skogman. "We play to alternate Bash and Skogman and there is the possibility that Alan Sihaefer will get in there," said Nagel about the quarterback spot. Iowa altered its offense somewhat last week against.the Gophers and it showed up in the final stats—especially rushing. "We just brought our winback in tight and slammed it at 'em," said Nagel. "We executed very well and our blocking was especially good." Cornhuskers Rated 2 Touchdown Favorite AMES (AP) — History, the oddsmakers and statistics won't be on the side of Iowa State when it meets Nebraska Saturday, but Cyclone coach Johny Majors thinks 'his team will be "ready." "All we need is to win one close game to get really rolling," Majors said this week. Last Saturday the Cyclones were mighty close, before losing 29-28 to Oklahoma. "A lot of players on our team are performing well enough to win and once you win succes breeds success," added Majors. Despite Majors' optimism, Nebraska (7-0-1) rates a two touchdown plus favorite to make it 11 straight victories over the Cyclones. "There is no doubt that Nebraska is one of the best foot- bail teams in the country and worthy of its number four ranking," Majors said of the Corn­ huskers who are 4-0 in the conference. "They will be the best team we face this season by far," Majors added. Iowa State will take a S -4 overall record into the game after the disappointing setback last week against Oklahoma. In that one the Oydones jumped to a 21-0 lead before 12 minutes had elapsed in the first quarter but could not hold on. Two things concern Majors in • preparing for the Huskers —stopping their varied offense and getting more mileage out of hte ISU running game.

In addition to the required training, all officers attend quarterly in-service training sessions where they discuss such problems as law enforcement, game and fish management, legislation and seasons.
