1975 * Sunday Gazette-Mail OLD PRO Blanda Retired, But Only From His Off-Season Job SANTA ROSA. Calif. AP - George Blanda decided over the winter to retire--but only from his off-season job. The 47-year-old placekicker and quarterback keeps rolling along in pro football, suiting up this weekend to prepare for his 26th season in the sport. As usual, he reported a week late to the Oakland Raiders' training camp. "They've always let me come in a week late. I'm sure that originally they took image into consideration. I was 39 when I joined the Raiders, and maybe they thought training camp would wear me out," Blanda said. Temmmitei Wear Out Lawrence and rookie David Humm of Nebraska are more likely to be backing up Ken Stabler. "In Kenny, we've got the best in football." Blanda said. "This will be only his third full season. I don't know how much better he can get, but he's a great athlete and he's still learning." McCoy Leads Golf Tourney George Blanda's Got More Kicks Coming in Football He's Suiting Up for 26th Season on America's Gridirons -APWirephoto But only Blanda's teammates seem to wear out, hundreds of them since he began his National Football League career with the 1949 Chicago Bears-- whose stars included Sid Luckman, Johnny Lujack and George McAfee. "Most players who've been around any length of time think of training camp as a time of hard work, frustration and monotony. But I can honestly say I look forward to it. I work hard and relax a lot, too," Blanda said. "It's good seeing the players I know again, meeting the new kids and starting to think of a new season with our same goal of winning the Super Bowl." Blanda contributed 77 points--11 field goals and 44 extra points--to the Raiders' offense last season, when the team's quest for a Super Bowl berth was ended by the Pittsburgh Steelers in the American Conference championship game. The old pro, whose 48th birthday will be on Sept. 17, enters the 1975 season with an NFL record 1,919 points-and a shot at 2.000 this year. Instant T.D. Pass Coach John Madden gave Blanda his first regular season passing opportunity in two years last December. The result was an instant touchdown pass, the 236th of his career, against the Dallas Cowboys. "I've told John I'm not against playing more quarterback," Blanda says, but acknowledges that second-year man Larry PARKERSBURG - Dallas McCoy of Ironton. Ohio shot an opening round 68 here Saturday for the lead in the South Hills men's amateur golf tournament. In the first flight. Jim Passaro and Moon Mullins are tied for the lead, both with 75: Gus Belcher is tied for the fifth flight lead with a 79. Jim Adkins shares the ninth flight lead with 81. B.F. Bowen and Kermit Bown are tied in the 12th flight with 85 and Jim McCauley is tied for the 16th flight lead with a 91.

The track program, for boys and girls in the seventh, eighth and ninth grades, will run from Aug. 11-15. It is being offered in cooperation with the Charleston and Kanawha County recreation departments. Blanda. whose winter home is near Chicago, worked 21 years in the off-season as a sales representative for REA Express. "But 1 quit in February. It took up a lot of my time between seasons and I figured I owed it to myself to get more enjoyment out of life." he explained. "My golf game's so good right now 1 kind of hate to give it up." But. the gray-haired star concluded. "I'm happiest playing football."
