off-side by Irice lakki NFL owners playing foul: It looks like the National Football League owners are out to break the back of the players who are on strike with "mad" money. The owners and the players, some not all, have been warring for the past 26 days and the way it looks the strikers and the owners will hold out until the money runs out But, the owners are trying to woo mad veterans into training camps with a 10 per cent bonus and this lever might work. It seems the name of the game isn't football it's money. The only people that will loose are the fans that pay their way into the stands to watch Sunday's heros at work. If the strike ends: Listed below are a few things to watch for if the strike does come to an end in time for the 1974 NFLseason. *League Continued from page 1 try the professional route at an early age only to find discouragement the end result.

(AP) — When the penalty was on, Ken Still trailed the leaders by one shot. When the penalty came off, Still vaulted in front. "You go to court and sometimes you win, sometimes you lose," the 39-year-old veteran said Thursday after he'd won relief from a two-shot penalty, a ruling that gave him sole control of first place in the $200,000 Canadian Open Golf Tournament.

A House-Senate conference to iron out differences between the two versions was viewed likely. A major difference is a provision in the Senate bill prohibiting strip mining of millions of tons of federally owned coal beneath ranch and prairie lands in the West. The House bill, approved 291 to 81 Thursday, does not include such a prohibition although it would require the surface owners' consent before the federally owned coal could be mined. Approval in the House came after six days of debate, during which environmentalists attacked the bill as too lax and energy-industry forces criticized it as too stringent. The bill would establish a set of federal environmental standards for surface coal mining and would create a new strip mining agency in the Interior Department to enforce them. States would be permitted to establish their own enforcement programs under the bill. But their standards would have to be as strong or stronger than the federal ones. AT H.S.

Houston will be making its sixth straight visit to New Orleans. Alabama has played in two previous tournaments preceding the Sugar Bowl football game. By KEN RAPPOPORT AP Sports Writer Winning isn't everything— but it sure helps attendance. The Los Angeles Dodgers have been living by baseball's "golden rule" for some time and now the San Diego Padres, Texas Rangers and Cleveland Indians are finding it to be true. Attendance in the major leagues is up over last year by 150,000 with the dramatic help of those teams, who are winning more games this season and concurrently more fans. The Padres have made the most dramatic attendance leap, according to an Associated Press survey. By the All-Star break, the Padres had drawn 763,930 fans, compared with 434,468 last season. Last year, the Padres had a 33-65 won-lost record in the National League West. This year, although still last, they have improved to 43-58. The Rangers also have helped push major league attendance to 17,701,547 by mid- season. Last year at this, point, the total attendance figure was 17,551,406. Involved in a pennant race for the first time, the Rangers have drawn 775,120 into their stadium so far. Promotional gimmicks have helped the Indians, but the fact that they are in the American league East race is the main reason for better attendance there, club officials feel. In 1973, the Indians were out of contention in last place and drew only 400,907 by All-Star time. This year, they're righting for the East Division lead and have produced 657,046 fans so far—more than Cleveland drew all of last season (605,073). At the end of the season's first half, the National League West leaders, the Dodgers, had pulled a stunning total of 1,539,004 fans into Dodger Stadium. That's 405,110 more than last season and by far the best figure in the majors. This year's figures show the National League in front, 9,956,004 to 7,745,543. (Last year at this time, the Nationals led, 9,520,980 to 8,030,426). Attendance has skyrocketed also in Cincinnati, St. Louis and Philadelphia as well. Each has gone over the one million mark—something no American League team has accomplished. The Reds have drawn 1,190,755 so far, up from 957,604 last year; the Cardinals are at 1,029,767, compared to last year's 895,029 and 1,000,778 have attended Phillies' games this season, a climb from last year's 856,312. All three teams are involved in pennant fights. The Atlanta Braves, who have drawn 659,746 fans this year, are the other NL team on the plus side. Their attendance, up 181,335 from last year, has been aided by Hank Aaron. While the National League has six teams which are drawing more than last year, the American League can only boast three. The Baltimore Orioles, up to 555,816 from 508,227 last year, join Cleveland and Texas in that category. The Boston Red Sox, leaders in the American League East, also lead the American league in attendance despite having the smallest park (seating capacity 33,379). The Red Sox have drawn 803,446 thus far, down from last year's 886,481. The Houston Astros took the biggest drop in attendance, from 993,376 to 721.174.

FOR EVERY SIZE INSURANCE NEED SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) A disappointed Ara Parseghian has conceded that six of his key football players have been dismissed from the University of Notre Dame for one year for violating school rules. Parseghian, coach of the defending national champions, told The Associated Press Thursday: "It's a great disappointment, one of those things that happens, and we'll just have to set it behind us." Parseghian responded to an AP story that six players, including four from the heart of the Irish defensive unit, would be out of school for at least one year because of the matter. "But as far as I'm concerned it was a university irregularity and a university suspension," he said. The South Bend Tribune reported Thursday the matter involved a complaint by an unidentified 18-year-old woman who alleged she had been raped. County Prosecutor William E. Voor Jr. said six Notre Dame football players were under investigation. No charges have been filed. An Irish teammate identified the dismissed students as safety Luther Bradley, Muncie, Ind.; defensive end Russ Browner, Warren, Ohio; kick return specialist Al Hunter, Greenville, N.C.; defensive end Willie Fry, Memphis, Term.; defensive halfback Roy Henry, New Orleans, and Dan Knott, a halfback from Chowchilla, Calif. All are sophomores and, except for Henry and Knott, were likely starters this fall. None of the six could be reached for comment. Voor said the alleged rape occurred July 3 in a campus dormitory occupied by football players. Parseghian said the dismissals were related to a violation of dormitory rules. The Tribune quoted Voor as saying he would not initiate criminal proceedings against the six. Voor also was quoted as saying the woman who filed the complaint and the six men involved had given conflicting accounts of the incident. He said there was no evidence to support the charges except the woman's complaint. tool that works like a BOXFUL !
