99 Accidents Last Year; 12 Fatal— Iowa Hunting Season Sparks Emphasis on Gun Safety By Craig Wagner (Omltfi University tfntirnaltftm Student) (l)ifttrlbuted by Iowa Dully Press Association) DES MOINES — Iowa firearm accidents have fluctuated year by year, with 99 reported in 1969, including 12 fatal ones. The number of Iowa Hunter Safety Course graduates also has varied In the past 10 years. The emphasis on safety is sparked by the opening of the pheasant-hunting season Nov. 14. and the quail season which began Oct. 24. With the large number ef hunting licenses issued in Iowa each year, 344.874 in 1969 with a state population of about 2,775,000, the safe handling of firearms should be emphasized. The Iowa Hunting and Trapping Laws Synopsis says hunters can shoot only ringneck pheasants, and shooting hours are from 8 a.m.-4:30 p.m. p.m. daily with a big limit of three cock birds and a possession limit of six cock birds. In an effort to decrease firearm accidents, voluntary statewide hunter safety courses are held in Iowa to instruct hunters and gun owners on proper gun handling, to provide information about guns and ammunition and to teach sportsmanship. Charles Olofson, hunter safety officer for the Iowa Conservation Commission, said about 56,000 towans have been trained in hunter safety and 3,000 Iowa hunter safety instructors have been trained through the voluntary courses during the past 10 years. The course was initiated fn 1960, and the following figures show the yearly fluctuation in total enrollment: 1960, 2U; 1961, 5,522; 1962, 4,254; 1963, 4,366; 1964, 4,583; 1965, 8,427; 1966, 7,632; 1967, 6,105; 1968, 6,291, and 1969, 8,286.

Only 7 ef ?• sheeting accidentu in Iowa In 1949 were caused by defective weapons. These seven were iwn<fataf accidents. Twenty-six of the remaining 92 accidents occurred when another hunter fired at game. The remaining 66 firearm accidents resulted from the unintentional firing of weapons which result when the shooter stumbles and falls, when a trigger catches on a bush or other object, when the shooter is crossing a fence or other obstacle, while the hunter is riding in a vehicle Avith a loaded weapon and from "horse play" — when the person holding the gun didn't know the gun was loaded. A report published by th« Hunter Safety Division of the Iowa Conservation CommiSBon showed that almost 75 per cent of the 99 firearm accidents in Iowa last year occurred when the muzzle of the gun was 10 yards or less from the wound. The breakdown of the distances and their respective number of accidents is aft follows: 0-10 yards, 73 accidents; 11-50 yards, 24 accidents; 51100 yards, 1 accident, and 100 yards or more, 1 accident. The report also noted that 47 of the accidents occurred with shotguns, 31 with rifles and 21 with handguns. This figure relates to the fact that 62 of the accidents were Air Force In Sugar Bowl; Cotton Eyes Irish-Texas By The Associated Press The Air Force will soar into the Sugar Bowl New Year's Day post-season football classic in New Orleans while the Cotton and Orange bowls may fight over Notre Dame. Speculation also arose Monday that Boston College might have its choice of the Peach Bowl in Atlanta or the Liberty Bowl in Memphis, Tenn. And in Excelsior Springs, Mo., the sponsors of the Nov. 28 Mineral Water Bowl anounced that Wayne State College, Wayne, Neb., 7-2 would face Franklin, Ind., College, 6-3, in its 24th annual clash, sanctioned by the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics. Air Force's Falcons, who moved up three notches Monday to the No. 10 ranking in The Associated Press poll, became solid bowl contenders with last Saturday's 31-14 trimming of Rose Bowl-bound Stanford to boost their record to 9-1. It is the third post-season game fqr the Falcons, who played Texas Christian to a scoreless tie in the 1958 Cotton Bowl and were belted 35-0 by North Carolina in the 1963 Gator Bowl. Notre Dame appears to be repeating its 1969 act when, until it accepted a bid to the Cotton Bowl in Dallas, Tex., it kept several bowls in the air about selecting its opponents. The Fighting Irish can't officially accept a bid, however, until after their Saturday game with LSU. Only a few teams, among them Nebraska and Air Force, were eligible under NCAA rules to anounce bowl intentions after last Saturday's games. The Orange Bowl in Miami, Fla., is still hoping to lure Notre Dame to its New Year's Night classic to face third-ranked Nebraska—but Coach Ara Parseghian has hinted his second- ranked Irish would prefer to re turn to the Cotton Bowl for a rematch with the No. 1 Texas Longhorns. Texas, which beat the Irish 21-17 last New Year's Day, will have to get by Arkansas Dec. 5 to win the Southwest Conference crown and the Cotton Bowl berth. The Orange Bowl, meanwhile, is also considering offering bids to Tennessee, Louisiana State or Mississippi. Peach Bowl publicity director Bill Robinson said that "right now, Boston College and Perm State are the two eastern teams under consideration." Jack Bugbee, publicity director of the Liberty Bowl, also said Boston College was in the running. Penn State beat BC earlier this season and the Nittany Lions face Pittsburgh this Saturday. Pitt lost 21-6 to Boston College last Saturday. Meanwhile, Big Ten Commissioner Bill Reed said Monday he favors repealing the conference's "no-repeat" rule and permitting its champion to automatically play in the Rose Bowl. Under the 24-year-old rule, Michigan could beat Ohio State Saturday to win the title but be ineligible for post-season activity since it played in the last New Year's Day classic. Reed said the rule was once a necessity to prevent one Big Ten power from becoming a Rose Bowl dynasty "but the nature of the competition in the last 15 years shows there is not much danger in a hierarchy taking over." But he admitted its chance of being dropped are slim. today's FUNKY •tfff \m AMaiMttt Sicarl W. Wanwek, ILL **>• Tory's FUNNY yiM W $1.00 for •acK original "funny" UMI*.

Longhorns Back On Top In Poll Big 10 Weighs No-Repeat Rule CHICAGO (AP) — The Big Ten's no-repeat policy in the Rose Bowl might be on its way out. Commissioner Bill Reed said Monday he is in favor of sending the conference champion to the Rose Bowl every year. Under the no-repeat rule, Michigan could defeat Ohio State Saturday to win the conference title but is ineligible for the Rose Bowl since it represented the conference last year. "We 'have a great deal at stake in the Rose Bowl and feel we should make it as great an attraction as possible," said Reed. "My views are not shared by the conference. I put this question on the agenda at last year's meeting and no one responded to it." The no-repeat in force for 24 rule has been years and the Big Ten has sent only four second place teams — all of whom returned victoriously. "The original purpose of the conference in voting the no-repeat rule was that no school set up a Rose Bowl hierarchy, said Reed. "This was a sound policy, but the nature of the competition in the last 15 years dhows there is not much danger in a hierarchy taking over," he added. Reed said he would net recommend elimination of the rule at the Big Ten meetings next month but added "During the next year I think the conference schools should reexamine this point and make their views known, even if I stand in danger of being repudiated. "There when we is no question that first entered into the Rose Bowl contract, the no-repeat rule was essential," said Reed. "The contract could not have been approved without it; it represented a form of restraint. "This sentiment may still exist and then I'm out of order Compensation Crisis is Faced by Salesmen By JOHN CUNNIFF (AP Business Analyst) NEW YORK (AP) - This is a story about a group of men, most of them over 40, who have not received a basic increase in their rate of pay in 25 years and who claim it could lead to the death of their craft. They are the commission salesmen, independent and unsalaried, working for S per cent or a bit more of the money they bring in by representing small and medium she manufacturers of fabrics, plastics, furniture and so en. "This was once one of the most rewarding careers of all," said Marvin Leffier, chairman Gourmet Secret- Add Beer! Have yo« over tried beer cookery?

Box 159 OtOMili of the National Council of Salesmen's Organizations, which claims to speak for 40,000 salesmen in 59 separate organizations. "Ten years ago a man might have an income of $20,000 to 125,000. At best, that average is now 10 per cent higher, and that's not enough of a gain to offset inflation. There is a crisis of compensation." But, Mr. Leffler, although the rate of return may not be any higher, certainly the volume is. Doesn't 'this offset his higher costs? "No," Leffler answered emphatically. "Hotels cost more, meals cost more, entertaining customers costs more, gas and oil cost more, cars cost more, the borrowed money to pay for the cars coats more..." Yes, Mr. Leffler, you have sold the point. Anybody will buy that. Hie average salesman, Leffler added, marshalling his statistics for the coup, "has reported to us that his costs of doing business have increased about 17 per cent ki the past 12 months." In leu inflationary time* the commission salesman merely worked longer and harder to offset higher expenses. But persistent inflation has him dog tired, discouraged and maybe even beaten. Moreover, the spate of mergers and acquisitions has hurt badly. Many of them involve the small manufacturers served by the commission man, who then must seek to acquire another account or accept a lower standard of living. 1«e National Council therefore has begun a campaign to gain rocojnition for the salesman's plhjit. As a begining, letters are being sent to manufacturer* throughout the country who use commission men rather than maintaining their own sales forces. "This is not a union approach," Leffler comments in the letter. "Our intercession is one of good will. We simply ask you |» recognize 'that what we do togetlher will bear 'heavily on the future of the selling profession." \t n the nature of the sales* man, Leffler said in an interview. "He's independent. And the psychology of selling means that he always must put his best foot forward. If he's bleeding he won't wear a bandage. He won't fight as an individual." If compensation is not improved the Council feels that good men will be driven from •the field, new ones will be discouraged from entering, and the job will fall to lower caliber per- sonel who will do an inferior job. "We want to break the ice," said Leffler. "If some go for the higher rates, all will. suggesting it be changed. If H is of essence to the contract then don't want the contract changed." Reed felt one solution would be to let the individual schools accept or decline a second consecutive invitation, adding that the Rose Bowl trip was a tremendous undertaking with disruptions involving some six weeks of time cutting into the basketball program and other atletic events.

Bob D e v a n ey of Nebraska said Oklahoma is "a young team that's been rising very fast and getting better every week." Chuck Fairbanks of Oklahoma said Nebraska has "a rare blend of material-4he stability of outstanding seniors and the enthusiasm of equally fine sophomores." Oklahoma, 4-1, has a chance to share the Big Eight title if it beats Nebraska, 6-0, at Lincoln Saturday. Nebraska's running back Jeff Kinney has a shoulder injury and Willie Harper has a hip pointer, but Devaney said both should be ready for Oklahoma. Kansas State will shift split end Mike Creed to flanker to replace the injured John Goerger in the final game at Florida State. Rick Fergerson will move up to Creed's spot at split end. The old rivalry between Mis souri and Kansas is heating up. Coach Pepper Rodgers said his Kansas squad is determined to avenge the 69-21 beating inflicted by Missouri last year. He moved sophomore Jerome Nel- loms ahead of senior Steve Conley at runlng back. Coach Dan Devine of Missouri anounced the loss of John Burns, offensive tackle, who suffered a cheekbone fracture early in the Iowa State game and underwent surgery Sunday. Mike Benett, senior defensive end, pulled a hamstring muscle in the first quarter and is through with college football. By The Associated Press It's nice to be No. 1 again— but Texas coach Darrell Royal is more concerned that, if his Longhorns don't remain there, they may find themselves watching football's bowl games on television. The Lenghorns, after spend* ing a week as No. 2 behind Notre Dame, tried harder last Saturday and, by shellacking Texas Christian 58-0, vaulted back to he top of The Associated Press college football poll Monday. The Irish, whose 8-0 record equals Texas', had to scramble to nip Georgia Tech 10-7. Cotton Bowl official Wilbur ilvans said the Longhorns' re- urn to the top "enhances our ihances of giving the fans the No. 1 bowl attraction for the second straight year "—but Texas still has to get by Arkansas to earn that bowl berth. Royal expressed concern Monday that the late date of the Arkansas game—Texas hosts the 8-1 Razorbacks Dec. 5 in what will likely decide the Southwest Conference title and ;he Cotton Bowl entry—could result in the loser getting shut out of post-season play as all the major bowl pairings would be completed by then. But he quickly added he expected to be back in the Cotton Bowl on New Year's Day, adding: "We'd be delighted to play Notre Dame." A year ago the Longhorns squeaked by Arkansas 15-14 in the season finale, then rallied in the final minutes to beat the Irish 21-17. Texas garnered 26 first-place votes to seven for Notre Dame and out-polled the Irish 816 to 705 in total points in the poll, which also saw major shuffling among the remaining Top Ten teams according to the vote by a nationwide panel of sportswriters and sportscasters. Nebraska, 9-0-1, which pounded Kansas State 51-13, moved up one notch to third place, 11 points shy ef Notre Dame, and Michigan, 9-0, a 55-0 victor over Iowa, inched from fifth to fourth place with •82 points. land_balance •If operation a late-game 39-yard field goal to edge Purdue 10-7, fell two places to fifth at 643. The second five were Arkansas, up two slots; Louisiana State, also up two; Tennessee, leaping from 19th to eighth; Arizona State, from llth to ninth, and Sugar Bowl-bound Air Force, up from 13th.

In relation to hunting accidents, the following occurred while hunting: Rabbit, 21; pheasant, 12; squirrel, 11; coon, 4; duck, 3; quail, 2; fox, 2, and 1 accident apiece for 7 other kinds of hunting. According to the report. the number of fatal and non-fatal hunting accidents has fluctuated in the past five years. In 1965 there was a total of 115 accidents; 1966, 140; 1067, 114; 1968, 75, and 1%9, 99. Olofsen said 14 states have mandatory hunter safety courses far individuals under II purchasing hunting licensee, but Iowa deea not. In Iowa the courses are conducted by such organizations as the Izaak Walton League, Boy and Explorer Scouts, church groups, public and Catholic schools, city councils and sherifif departments, Kiwanis and other community organizatons, veterans organizations and those who operate Ohio State, 8-0, which needed COMMERCIAL RESIDENTIAL INDUSTRIAL Duck and Geese Hunting Hours— Nov. 18 - 7:11 ».m. to 4:56 p.m. Nov. 19 — 7:1Z a.m. to 4:56 p.m. Nov. 20-7:13 a.m. to 4:55 p.m. Nov. 21 - 7:14 a.m. to 4:54 p.m. Nov. 22 — 7:15 a.m. to 4:58 p.m. Nov. 23-7:17 a.m. to 4:53 p.m. shooting preserves. The Iowa Hunter Safety Course, Olofson said, is approved by the National Rifle Association of America and is used in all states having statewide hunter safety programs. The Conservation Commission's Hunter Safety Course presents the three primary rules of hunter safety: Treating every gun as if it's loaded; being sure of the target, and always pointing the muzzle of the gun in a safe direction. The course takes four hours, including the examination, and can be given in a single session; or it can be divided into two two-hour sessions, or four one-hour sessions. The most recent Iowa Firearm Accident Report shows that only two of the 99 persons involved in shooting accidents last year were known hunter safety course graduates, another 49 had not been trained in hunter safety, and the status of the remaining 48 was not known. Olofsen «aid the Conservation Commission encourages all hunters to attend the course, and he emphasized the importance of girls enrolling in hunter safety because there usually are firearms in the home, and women should know how to handle them. He said the commission is interested in making hunting a safe sport, and it can be safe if people use common sense and care.
