Valley is just such a Redwood providing challenge Saturday! tbnight and Shift in NCAA football alignment ATLANTA (Ut'I) — The major college football powers owe their newly gained economic, independence in large measure to Henry Lough. Lough, faculty representative from the University of Missouri, outmaneuvered the fprces who would have denied that ihdependence Thursday with some fancy parlimentary footwork, A group of smaller schools, trying to block the large football powers from creating their own division within the NCAA, had already won one floor fight and appeared to have won a second and even more crucial battle before Lough turned things around by successfully demanding a roll call vote. Lough's motion shot down an earlier one by President Donald Shields of California State which would have had the convention delegates vote, by secret ballot on an amendment to toughen requirements for being in the NCAA.'s top division. An amendment setting up subdivisions within the NCAA's top division logf by 27 votes, 142;115, with all Division I members voting. But only the Division I football school's got to vote on changing the requirements for membership and although that failed on a show of hands 74-72, it carried by an 82-73 margin when the roll call was taken. Changing the criteria for Division I left many of the smaller schools in danger of loss, but two losses would leave the Eagles back in the pack —where they dbn't want to be. They like the view up front, better. Meanwhile, Ukiahi's Varsity and Jayvee teams are playing a stubborn foe tonight at 7 and 8:30 p.m. when they travel to Piner high school. Ukiahi's'wrestlers willbe in the Viking Invitational Saturday at 9 a.m., while the Uki&hi girls' basketball team rests until Jan. 24; the college girls are just learning their wrong," admits, the Bl-oncos' big defensive end. "I'm embarrassed for what I did, but it taught me a whole lot about people." Alzado did hardly anything wrong for the Broncos this season. He was the key man in Denver's superb defense, performing so spectacularly that his own peers in the NFL Players' Association voted him the Byron "Whizzer" White award as their man of the year. Affable and surprisingly ar- The detectives came to my house and started knocking on the door. My mom began crying. 'Not r^ain,'she said. I love my mother. She's a great woman." Alzado says he's also fond of his father although he doesn't see him anymore. After the Broncos beat Oakland two weeks ago, Denver's curly- haired 6 -foot -3 enforcer 1 was told a Maurice Alzado had phoned him and asked to be called back. Maurice Alzado is his father's name, but Alzado did not return the call. "I don't respect what he did to the family," he says. "I don't want to talk about it anymore." A former Golden Gloves heavyweight champion and the first player ever picked in the NFL draft from Yankton College in South Dakota, Alzado now works with retarded children and draws enormous satisfaction from ticulate for a man who has the that. Olympic politics heat up being dropped out of the plays; and the Ukiahi Frosh division altbgether, so when are idle tonight, the subdividing proposal was called back up for reconsideration, they threw in the towel. "There was a • lot of in- timidat-ion out there," charged San Jose State Athletic Director Bob Murphy, spokesman for the smaller schools. "I can tell you we would have won with a secret ballot." But the Division I smaller schools didn't lose the fight altogether. Pennsylvania's Andy Geiger got 73-70 approval that allows those schools which can't meet new attendance (17,000 average over four years) or stadia (30,000) standards to stay in the top division if they sponsor at least 12 varsity sports. Murphy feels the 12-sports amendment "gave us essentially what we were looking for in the first place. We lost a lot of battles, but we actually may have won the war." The amendment could ,be overturned today, but Murphy says he hopes that won't happen. "If it does happen, there will be a lot of bloodletting out there on the floor of the convention. The NCAA also voted Thursday to take away the renvaining college eUgibihty of basketball players who make themselves available to the pros as "hardship"cases. Humboldt women travel for basketball games ARCATA — After splitting a pair of Golden State Conference (GSC) road games last weekend, the Humboldt State women's basketball team faces more of the same this weekend when it travels to Cal-State Sacramento and Cal-State Hay ward. Coach Dianh Laing's improving women bring a 2-3 season mark and 1-1 GSC slate, including a win over Hay ward, into Friday's game with Sacramento, considered to be one of the GSC's top teams by Laing. "Sacramento is big and aggressiye. They have an «ithusiastic and extremely competitive program," Laing said. "They will be tough at both ends of the cd.urt." Saturday, HSU faces a Hayward team it defeated, 4644, with a last minute rally one^ week ago. "Hayward at times looks ragged and sloppy. They are tough because you don't know what to expect from them," Laing said. Forw&rd J.J. Suttie led the way in the victory over riayward with 12 points and 11 rebounds while Suzanne Washington turned- in a spectacular performance against U.C. Davis, with 22 points and 11 rebounds, but HSU dropped a 70-66 decision. While Laing was pleased with several aspects of her dub's performance, she said her club must be more aggressive. "We need to. be more intense. We mast'drive to the basket with more determination. Also we are working on defensive aggressiveness by preparing to take charging fouls. "Our ball handling was poor. \ye made too many bad passes. But, then again, we had taken two weeks off and our opponents hadn't," Laing said. LOS ANGELES (UPI) The political manuevering over the cost of hosting the 1984 Olympics, should Los Angeles get the bid, increased Thursday. City Councilmen John Ferraro and Bob Ronka, who hold opposing views oh the subject of hosting the games, said they would have lunch today with an unnamed businessman who would help them reach a compromise on pulling an Olympics cost- control measure on the June ballot. Ronka has fought for a ballot that would ask the .voters if they want the Olympics and if limits should be placed on city spending for the games. Ferraro has supported the city's bid and said he will chair a five-tjiember committee to hear all matters concerning that bid. He said Councilmen Marvin '^Braude, Ernani Bernardi, Gilbert Lindsay and Zev Yarbslavsky would also be on the panel. Bernardi also favored the ballot measure. The committee will get its first assignment Friday when Mayor Tom Bradley submits responses to an International Olympic Committee questionnaire and a statement of policy defining the city's commitment if it holds the games. "The statement says, in effect, that we will not be bound by any rule to which we do not specifically agree," said Anton Calleia, Bradley's liaison officer for the Olympics. One-rule Wiat Calleia said was unacceptable was Rule .21, which says all revenues from the games belong to the IOC. "We are saying in our response to the IOC that all the money should belong to the local organizing committee," he said. Calleia also said the city would not build an Olympic village. kind of background he claims he has, the 28-year-old Alzado says he's a loner and doesn't have any close friends, even among his teammates. "I'm an emotionally intense person and that turns a lot of people off," he explains. "I'm sure a lot of guys on this team don't particularly like me. It's hard to hang around with an intense person. 1 understand that." Nothing, though, ' will provide, him'with more immediate satisfaction than beating the Cowboys on Sunday. On Thursday, Alzado was in a happy frame of mind because his wife, Sharon, joined him from Denver. "You know what she did before she came down here," he says, shaking his head. Qasses will be held at the Ukiah Elks Lodge on Vichy Springs Road and the sessions will begin at 7 and end at 9:15 p.m. ' Those enrolling in the course must complete all five classes in order to qualify for their hunting licenses. Art Kilgore, state certified rifle and firearms safety instructor, will conduct the free course. Monday is an enrollment night. Minors under 18 must be accompanied by a parent on enrollment night and parents are invited to watch all subsequent sessions. Kilgore, his wife, Millie; Bob Montgomery, Lauretta Brooker and Ross Waggoner are instructors. Glasses are limited to 35 per session so those who enroll Monday will be ass/ured of a chance to complete the course by registering early. Those who wpit for other classes later in the year may not get their training in in time lo qualify for hunting licenses. James Coach of the Year A-TLANTA (UPI) — Washington Coach Don James credited the media Thursday with giving his team a big boost in its 27-20 Rose Bowl upset of Michigan. Janies, who was honored as the coach of the year by the American Football Coaches Association, said the Wolverines may not have been quite as keyed up for the game as his Huskies.

Denver player threat 1 NEW ORLEANS (UPI) — Broncomania took an ugly turn Thursday when it was learned a threatening phone call had been made in Denver against the life of Broncos fullback Jon Keyworth, a starter in Sunday's Super Bowl Xil against the Dallas Cowboys. The Broncos claimed they had no details on the incident and issued a statement Thursday afternoon saying, "It's Barnes paces Buffalo James. , , r Although the Huskies were a ""^er investigation by the FBI and we will have no further comment." By Unite<i Press International .Marvin Barnes had his best performance as a Brave Thursday night since coming to Buffalo in late November in a trade with the Detroit Pistons.

Nobody argued witli Barnes' statement as he helped the Braves turn a 15-point deficit with 4:23 left in the third quarter an 81-76 lead on Billy Knighi^S layup as die period ended. Barnes, of course, didn't do it all by himself. Randy Smith scored a game-high 28 points, center Swen Nater had nine points and a game-high 13 rebounds and Knight, a former P'acer, tallied 19 points. The Pacers were led by Ricky Sobers' 22 points. "It was really a turn around, that's what hurts," Pacers Coach Bob Leonard said of the Buffalo comeback.

Wrestling fans will be treated to a double dose of action, with the Lumberjack squad splitting up to wrestle both opponents at once. The varsity will be pitted" against Hayward, a Far Western Conference rival. Though OIT has beaten Humboldt 13 times, more than aiiy other team, it has lost its last eight encounters with the Lumberjacks and Humboldt coach Frank Cheek is sure this season will be no different. "They're not going to beat us this year, and neither is Hayward," Cheek said. Humboldt will enter the arena with two unbeaten wrestlers.

Though the season is half over, Davis' strength remains relatively unknown to Humboldt, since Davis was absent' at last month's GSC Relays, a meet won handily by Humboldt's "swimmin' women." .

If we don't break it, they can shave me bald," The team has also gained a member, however, in freshman diver Lori Gordon, who Partain described as "probably the best diver we've ever had." Fifteen Humboldt swimmers have already met the qualifying times for the GSC championship meet to be held next month, and two of those swimmers —Karen Menne and Paula Karl — have qualified for the Small College Nationals. Menne qualified in the 50 yard backstroke, 100 yard backstroke and 100 yard butterfly, and Karl qualified in the 50 yard freestyle.
