Bv YERUE ENGLERTH Keporter-.N'ews Sports Writer Pulling the throttle back a shade, roach Wally Bullmgton eased his Abilene Christian College Wildcats through a relatively short drill Thursday aflw- nnon sending his charges to the : showers after an hour and 15 minutes of work. ACC. preparing for Saturday 'night's game with the McMurry Indians, spent practically the 'entire session working on team unity ;;nd "polishing up." | Bullington also sent the squad Mhroiigh drills on the inside and 'wide running games as well as 'passing routes. '·We did a little of t ail today," said Bulliiigton who had liis Cats also work on the specialty games including punting, kickoffs and a rehearsal of the two-minute drill. Friday the team will only work out about 30 minutes "We'll really just be loosening up," said the ACC mentor. The Wildcats will drill in their game jerseys and work primarily on team timing. Defensively, the Cats will review different or unusual formations the Indians might throw at them Saturday and Bullington said the squad would also cover all phases of the kicking game .once agam. I Physically, the Wildcats are in! good condition for.their opener· with only one player doubtful.! Bob Lee, a sophomore defensive' tackle, is still bothered by at sprained ankle. Fullback Wolfgang Halbig is recovering from ; a badly bruised kidney, but Bullington said he'd see action. Only other person expected to be slowed for the game is starting wingback Nicky Pruitt. j However, he's been coming around strong and when the whistle blows may not even be bothered when the adrenalin flows.

Asked about Saturday night's big game with Abilene Christian, Forues said, "We know situation, Fornes said he did not they have a tremendous team come alive. "It's been in excellent week of, , - - . . workouts" said head coach: plan on alternating Page and and we think its gomna be one Buddy Fornes. "Our offense has Martin as such, but added, "If'heck of a head-knocker, been executing much better and " our defense has learned all of its stunt assignments and is doing a great job." In a d d i t i o n , quarterback James Page, who has drawn Nsj first starting assignment for the! Tribe, is reported in good condi-l tion following an injured shoul-j der. "We feel like James is physically ready to play. He's throwing the ball with a lot of zip," said Fornes. "We feel we have jelled as a team both offensively and defensively," Fornes said. "The boys have tremendous confidence and I think they're physically and mentally ready to play." The Tribe was scheduled to go through a brief workout Friday evening in shoulder pads and helmets to work on assignments and execution. CHICAGO (AP) - The Chicago Bears will not be hunting any championships this year. A winning season will do fine for Coach Jim Dooley, now in his 'ourth campaign at the helm of the Bears. Dooley, who posted a 7-7 season in 1968, slipped to 1-13 in 1969 and the Bears are still trying to climb to respectability following a 6-8 campaign a year ago. "I feel very confident we will tiave a winning season," said Dooley. "Overall, this is the best material we have had. We've got some good rookies and they can furnish a lot of momentum." But with the possible exception of No. 4 draft pick Jerry Moore of Arkansas, headed 'or a starting position at safety, .he rookies, namely No. 1 Joe Moore and No. 2 Jim Harrison, the heralded running tandem From Missouri, have not been productive. Moore suffered torn ankle ligaments in an exhibition) game and will miss at least the first month of the regular season. Harrison, despite his size-Woot-4 and 235 pounds--seems unable to bust into the open. Harrison has been more effective taking swing and flare passes which enable him to get into the open. So, again, the Bears appear to be at the mercy of the knees of Gale Sayers, the super, super back. Sayers underwent surgery in 1968 and came back in 1969 to lead the league in rushing. This time he has had two operations on the other knee. He is being brought back slowly, very slowly. Because of the doubtful stat- us of their running backs, the Bears quickly grabbed fullback Jim Grabowski, despite his knee problems, once the Green Bay Packers placed him on the waiver list. Knee operations on all-league linebacker Dick Butkus and defensive lineman Bill Staley appear successful and both were eased into competition late in the exhibition schedule. AT A GLANCE 1770 finish--tied for third with Green -ay in National Football Conference's Central Division. J970 reeord-4-B-O Strong pointe--Receiving threat of Dick Gordon, NFC leader In 1970 with 70 catches for 1,026 yards. Strong linebacking led by Dick Butkus and better than average front four on defense. Weak points--Running game question mark. Super-back Gale Sayers still a doubtful knee case, and expected replacement, rookie Joe Moore, sidelined for at least a month with torn ankle ligaments. Offensive line and defensive secondary must improve. Jack Concannon, apparent No. 1 quarterback, missed much of exhibition play because of pulled hamstring. New Faces--Jim Grabowski, Green Bay's castoff fullback; halfback Moore and fullback Jim Harrison, No. 1 and 1 draft choices from Missouri; No. 4 draft pick. Jerry AAoore, Arkansas, potential safety starter and Bob Jeter, former Green Bay defensive back.
