Miracle Boot Upsets Lions FUNNY BUSINESS By Roger Bollcn Dempsey Sets 63-Yard Mark By The Associated Press Tom Dempsey had an angel on his shoulder and some magic in his foot. "We got beaten by a miracle, what else can you say?" was all Detroit Coach Jo« Schmidt could say after D e m p s e y's record 63-yard field goal gave New Orleans a 19-17 National Football League upset Sunday. The kick on the last play of the game appeared to be heaven-sent for the underdog Saints, Who supposedly hadn't a prayer of winning. The Saints' bull-strong hooter had some faith he could make the distance, which bettered the 1956 mark of 56 yards by Baltimore's Bert Rechichar. "I knew I could kick the ball that far, but whether or not I could kick it straight, kept run- ning through my mind," Dempsey said. "I knew I had to hit the ball awfully hard and would need a little extra time. But the line held up perfectly and I got a perfect snap (from Joe Scarpati)." The field goal had a field day in other NFL games Sunday. Cincinati's Horst Muhlmann kicked five three-pointers as fine Bengals bested Buffalo 43-14; George Blanda's 52-yarder helped Oakland trim Cleveland 23-20; Fred Cox sailed tour field goals in Minnesota's 19-10 suc- ces over Washington; Mike Mercer's 38-yard boot was the difference in San Diego's 24-21 victory over Denver and Pete Gogolak ripped three as the New York Giants upset Dallas 23-20. Atlanta and Los Angeles played to a 10-10 tie; Philadelphia won its first game since Times Herald, Carroll, la.

Green Bay and Baltimore clash in the Monday night television (ABC) game in Milwaukee's County Stadium. Dempsey's booming drive cleared the cross-bar by mere inches, and he admitted it took some special ingredients. "There's so much involved in kicking a 60-yard field goal," he said. "You've got to try and hit the ball as hard as you possibly can and yet, kicking it straight is a hard thing to do. "It just happened that I hit it 1 right that time and it happened at the right time." Detroit appeared to have won it when Enroll Man kicked an 18-yard field goal with 11 seconds to give the Lions a one- point lead. But New Orleans' quarterback Billy Kilmer completed a pass to Al Dodd after the Detroit kickoff and Dod went out of bounds at the Saints' 5 with two seconds left. Then Dempsey, born toeless on his right kicking foot, did his thing. Muhlmann drilled field goals of 22, 30, 13, 36 and 43 yards for Cincinnati, which snapped a six-game slide. Buffalo's O.J. Simpson suffered a severe bruise on his left leg. Blanda, Oakland's 43-year-old kicking wizard, came through with his game-winner with three seconds left. He earlier relieved Daryle Lamonioa at quarter- Rated Nebraska Rips ISU, 54-29 AMES (AP) — It was another 'good' effort for Iowa State Saturday, said coach Johnny Majors, but when you are playing the likes of Nebraska good is second best. "In some areas our play was as good as that in the Oklahoma game (a 29-28 loss the week before), but the difference was that we were facing the best football team we will play this year," said Majors. Nonetheless, the Cyclones dropped their fifth straight when the fourth — rated 'Big Red' xipped away with a 54-29 decision and it also marked the ninth in a row Iowa State has lost in the Big Eight and its tenth consecutive to Nebraska. "We got off to a good start, you couldn't ask for a better one," said Majors. "But then with each order of develop* ing and printing of black and white or Kodacolor film. J 20% Off on developing and printing of slides and movie film. S ERNETT Family Center we made a couple of mistakes and you can't do that against a team like Nebraska." The Cyclones clicked for 36 yards on the first play of the game — a Dean Carlson to Otto Stowe pass in the flat. But on the next play Carlson fumbled and Nebraska recovered at its own 27. The Big Eight Conference leaders rumbled down for a touchdown and scored on their next possession also to take a 12-0 lead and the 24-point underdog Cyclones had to play catchup. "Our football team played well but we just couldn't slow them down consistently," added Majors. "But I still think we are showing progress and we are setting a goal of winning our next three games." Iowa State, now 3-5, plays Big Eight foes Missouri (4-5) and Oklahoma State (3-5) and then finishes with unbeaten San Diego State (8-0). "I think we can win all three of those games," added the third year coach. "We just have to keep improving and not lose our confidence." Besides the second play fumble, Majors cited a first half pass interception — one of three Nebraska picked off — and that the Cyclones managed only a 39-yard field goal after recovering a fumble at the Nebraska 19 as turning points. Both coaches raved about the play of ISU's split end Otto Stowe. "He had another great day PUBLIC AUCTION (USED VEHICLES) NOVEMBER 21, 1970 10:00 A.M.

"He is a definite all-American from what I have seen," said Nebraska coach Bob Devaney, who also paid tribute to Majors "for an outstanding job of coaching." Stowe hauled in two touchdown passes — nine and 33 yards — and finished with 62 yards on six catches as he added to his pair of career Iowa State records. All of the losers' touchdowns came by passes as Carlson threw scoring strikes of 33 and 20 yards and George Amundson hit on TD throws of nine and 55 yards.

Warning On Poison Fish DES MOINES (AP) -A warning to Towans against eating catfish and perhaps other fish taken from pesticides poisoned streams in many parts of Iowa is reportedly being prepared by state officials. Dr. Robert Morris, director of the State Hygienic Laboratory at Iowa City, says a new survey has shown that "many more rivers in Iowa" have harmful levels of dieldrin, a compound from the pesticide Aldrin. He said officials are preparing to submit to Gov. Robert Ray the results of the study, on fish taken from 21 river areas and two reservoirs. Irish Rated Super Team By This Week's Opponent For further information contact William Highway Commission Headquarters, Ame», Thomas or I. ihillak, Iowa. Phone A/C SIS- By The Associated Press There's no such thing as a super team ... or is there? The author of the first part of that statement is Bill Beall, whose Baylor team gave top- rated Texas all it could handle Slaturday before bowing 21-14 on a pair of Steve Worster touchdowns. But he may get an argument from Bud Carson of Georgia Tech, whose next asignment is second-ranked Notre Dame, fresh from a 46-14 pounding of Pitt. "Let me emphasize that I think Notre Dame is the best team in the country," Carson said after Saturday's 30-8 triumph over Navy. "I've seen films of Ohio State and Texas, but I feel we'll be playing the best there is this weekend. They're in a class by themselves." Elsewhere, the big news was Stanford's 29-22 come-from-behind victory over Washington, putting the sixth-ranked Indians in the Rose Bowl; Oregon's wild 46-35 triumph over No. 9 Air Force which dropped the Falcons from the unbeaten ranks, and the broken left arm suffered by Mississippi's brilliant Archie Manning during a 24-13 win over Houston. Stanford's Jim Plunkett passed for 268 yards and all four touchdowns, including a decisive 15-yarder to Randy Vataha with Th minutes left, and set a major college career record of 7,082 passing yards. Dan Fouls' fourth scoring pass, a 39-yarder to Bob Newland, and Ken Woody's 40-yard field goal wrapped up Oregon's victory over Air Force, which got three TDs from Brian Bream and a pair of scoring tosses from Bob Parker to Er- WE HAVE rite » CIVSTAt Clf AR • CUT, TACK, SEW or SfAL • HUNDRf OS OF USES INDOORS * OUTDOORS IIOIM Only 3** nie Jennings. Manning suffered his injury after passing for two touchdowns and an insurmountable lead for 13th-ranked Mississippi over No. 18 Houston. The star quarterback was taken to Baptist Hospital in Memphis, Tenn., where he was to undergo surgery today. Directly across the street in Methodist Hospital is Coach John Vaught, who was stricken with a mild heart attack last month. Joe Thiesmann became Notre Dame's alUime total offense leader with a 381-yard performance against Pitt — 284 pasing and 97 rushing. He threw for three touchdowns. "Theismain really put on a show for the fans," said Coach Ara Parseglhian. "As you know, we like to let Joe's performance on the field speak for his qualifications for the Heisman Trophy. His performance was eloquent." With Manning sidelined, Theisman probably is Plunkett's chief competition. Third-ranked Ohio State and No. 5 Michigan continued to share the Big Ten lead with the showdown coming up Nov. 21. The Buckeyes struggled past Wisconsin 24-7 behind John Brockington's three touchdowns while Michigan breezed past Illinois 42-0 as Glenn Doughty and Billy Taylor each scored twice. Nebraska, rated fourth, swept past Iowa State 54-29 as Joe Or- duna scored three touchdowns and Jerry Tagge passed for two. Seventh-ranked Arkansas, led by Bill Montgomery's three TDs, overcame a 14-3 halftime deficit and whipped Rice 38-14 to keep pace with Texas in line Southwest Conference. Tennessee ranked eighth, needed George Hunt's 31-yard field goal wiitJh 15 seconds left to nip South Carolina 20-18 and No. 10 Auburn blasted Mississippi State 56-0 behind snapshooting Pat Sullivan. Heading the Second Ten, Loui siana State's rugged defense stifled Alabama 14-9 in a match between the teams ranked llth and 19th. Arizona State, No. 12, trounced San Jose State 46-10 with Bobby Thomas scoring three times but 14th-ranked San Diego State needed a fourth-period pass from Brian Sipe to Tim Delaney to edge Pacific 1413. The losers' John Read, the nation's No. 2 passer, suffered torn knee ligaments.

Wake Forest stunned Duke 28-14 for the lead in the Atlantic Coast Conference, Louisville knocked off Memphis State 40-27 and won its way into the Pasadena Bowl as the Missouri Valley's representative and Kansas State whipped Oklahoma State 28-15, setting up next week's Big Eight Shootout with Nebraska.

H i s Hawkeyes continued their late-season offensive revival with a 42-13 Big Ten Conference trouncing of hapless Indiana. "This was a real pleasing win because it was so much of a team victory," said Nagel as Iowa pushed its record to 2-5-1. Two areas stood out prominently in the Iowa victory, however. "The defense played a very good game and Roy (Bash) did an excellent job," Nagel offered. "The final statistics don't really show it but I felt the defense played its second strong game in a row," Nagel added. "It made the big play when we needed it." It was a fumble recovery on Indiana 32 that Dave Clement latched onto that started the Hawkeyes on their first scoring drive. The defense came up with another fumble and an interception to let Iowa build a 42-7 lead with 2:48 left in the third quarter. Bash, a senior who was starting his first game at home since Southern Cal shocked Iowa 48-0 six weeks ago, was superb. He finished with with a perfect six of six passing for 113 "I. was very pleased \vilh Hie way he handled the oltense.'' said Nagel of Rash.
