8—Uklah Daily Journal, Uklah, Calif. Sunday, January 15, 1978 long Denver, Dallas await 'Super Sunday' NEW ORLEANS (UPI) — time, when more Can be ITie starting time for Sunday's charged by the networic for Super Bowl XII Jietween the commercials' An estimated television Denver Broncos and Dallas Cowboys has forced both coaohes to add .^n ejctra, page to their game plans. The first Super Bowl played indoors also will' have the latest starting time in the game's history, 3 p.m. PST in the Louisiana Superdome. Neither Denver Coach Red Miller nor Dallas Coach Tom Landry is happy about the long day their teams have to spend Sunday before capping the National Football League season. "We're not going to get the players up too early," Miller said Friday. "We'll try to keep them off their feet while they're waiting for the game. We'll go to chapel service after breakfast and spend some time watching films." '"The tension will be pretty strong during the long wait but we'll be okay as soon as the whistle blows." , The game matches a pair of Strikingly dissimilar teams: the mechanical Dallas Cowboys ' against the emotional Denver* Broncos. Dallas is a,five-point favorite but the Broncos have overcome^ the odds all season' in reaching the playoffs for the first time in 18 years. NFL Commissioner Pete Rozelle said the starting time is ah experiment to see how the Super Bowl does in prime worldwide fecord audience of 150 million is expected., , ,. "This will give us a large amount of prime time, but 1 have reservations about scheduling a game at night in a non-dome stadium," Rozelle said. The Cowboys might have some advantage over Denver in preparing for the late start because they played two Monday night games this season. Warriors beat the 13th jinx OAKLAND (UPI) — Old pros Rick Barry, Phil Smith and Cliff Ray led the way as the Warriors led from whistle to whistle in ^ 109-96 win over the New York Knicks Friday night.' Golden State went to a, 6-0 lead at the opening and when New York closed to within one point at 18-17, Barry led the Warriors on a 10-2 spurt that put them well out in front to stay. It was Golden State's fourth win in five starts. And it was exactly five games ago that coach Al Attles inserted rookie Ricky Marsh from Manhattan as a starter to guide the offense. Track marks toppled COLLEGE PARK, Md. (UPI) — Dick Buerkle, a relative newcomer to mid- distance running, took some advice from his coach — and found out Friday night just how fast he can run. "My coach, Bob Ivory, said a few months ago, 'Americans have lo go out and run hard every lap. Too many American milers are just kickers,'" said Buerkle. "So I said, why not? I wanted to find out just how fast I can run. I guess I did." Buerkle, a 30-year-old native of western New York, left heavily favored Filbert , Bayi of Tanzania in his dust, claiming a world indoor best with a time of 3; 54.8 at the National Invitational Indoor Track Meet. Bayi, who once ran a 3:51 mile outdoors — the second fastest time ever — finished at 3:58.4, about 40 yards behind. "I was trying to break the World record, but I didn't think I had a chance when„I heard the three-quarter time (2:58.3)," said Buerkle. Buerkle, a Villanova' graduate Who runs for the New York Athletic Club and ran longer events before switching to the mile about one year ago, broke Tony Waldrop's mark of 3:55 set in 1974. He was named the outstanding performer of the meet. Greg, Joy, a 21-year-old Vancouver native, joined Buerkle in claiming a world indoor best before the crowd of 8,897 at the University of Maryland. Joy high jumped 7 feet, 7 inches to smash Dwight Stones' mark of 7-6'/2 , established in 1.976. ' Two, American indoor marks also fell. Villanova's Mark Belger won the half-mile at 1 ;48.1, beating Mark Enyearl by 15 yards, and Joni Huntley of the Pacific Coast Qub won the women's high junrip at 6 feet, 4 inches. In other events, UCLA'rf Mike Tully won the pole vault at 17 feet, 6 inches, but didn't come close to the world standard of 18-4 establish«i last week at Long Beach, Calif. Auburn's Harvey Glance won the GO-yard dash in 6.16 seconds: Larry Shipp of Baton Rouge Track Club took the 60- yard high' hurdles in 7.13; Herman Frazier of the Philadelphia Pioneers won the 500- yard run in 56.2; and Stan Vinson of the Chicago Track Qub won the 600 in 1:09.2. In other women's events, Fi'ancie Larrieu of the Pacific C^ast Club won the mile at 4:39.6; Debby LaPlante of >the District of Columbia Striders breezed to victory in the 60- yard high hurdles in 7.97 seconds; Canada's Patti Loverock won the' 60-yard dash in 6.78; and Lorna Forde of the Atoms Ti-ack Club took the 440 in 53.9.

Eagle grapplers preparing for GVC tourney this weel< Mendocino College's wrestling Eagles came oh-so- close to winning their fourth and-or fifth Golden Valley Conference dual meets Friday at Butte College as they cleared the decks for the Golden Valley Conference C^iampionship Tournament Thursday and Friday at Eureka's College of the Redwoods. The Eagles dropped.a 30 to 24 decision to Butte in one half of Friday's double-dual meet at Oroville; and lost a five point decision to Lassen, 27-22. Each team had its share of forfeit wins and losses, but a goof by a referee on a call that could have given Lee Johnson of the Eagles a point, and at least a 10-10 tie,in his wild match with Butte's Dave Butler at 152 pounds, kept the Eagles from making it even closer than six points. Coach Keith Leland was pleased with the over-all efforts shown by his wrestlers. Art Reid, totally inexperienced in college wrestling before this season, showed he is learning the lough new game. He scored a takedown and a three-point near-fall the first perod in an exhibition bout against Butte...but like so many thousands of grapplers before him he made a mistake the second period that cost him the win and got himself pinned. Reid has 'worked himself down in poundage to where he is grappling at 190 pounds. , Lakeport's Dennis Reynolds yielded riding time, and with it a 6 to 5 decision on the mats to Butte's Mark Burgess at 160, but Reynolds scored an initial takedown, second period escape and third period reversal — but his opponent capitalized on a second period takedown, a third period reversal and escape — and that accumulated RT. Mike Engebritson of the Eagles won by a pin after a second period escape. Antonio Lopez and Jess Ayer won on forfeits,for the Eagles. Steve Scott and Mike Scott lost by decision and a' pin. Dennis Reynolds won on a second period pin and Lfee Johnson took a 5-2 decision in special matches. Antonio Lopez also won by forfeit against Lassen. As against Butte he wrestled up a full wight and for the day dropped a 4-2 exhibition to Butte's Javier Lopez — no relation — and pinned Lassen 's Mark Matthews in the third period, leading 6-4. Steve Scott won against Lassen, 17 to9; Mike Scott lost a 10-2 decision; Lee Johnson got pinned; Dennis Reynolds won by a third period pin; Mike Engebritson ran into a 17-3 buzzsaw;, Art Reid lost on a pin;"^ and Jess Ayer, heavyweight from Half Moon Bay, won on a pin while leading 10 to 5 in a free-rolling heavy heavyweight battle with Lassen's Brad Renner. Next stpp — GVC Championships at Eureka Thursday and Friday. Joe McCarthy mourned BUFFALO, N.Y. (UPI) Joseph "Marse Jde" McCarthy didn't care too much for the modern day type of baseball player. In fact, the friendly lantern- jawed Irishman, who never played in a major league game, but piloted the New York Yankees to seven World C3iampionships in the Bronx Bombers" heyday, wouldn't have thought much of last year's World Series heroes. "I was in the game for 20 years before I got a big salary," McCarthy said, when he celebrated his 90th birthday last April at his home in suburban Tonawanda, Yankee Farm. "I guess they don't play any of these games for the incentive anymore." The colorful Hall of Fame manager died Friday night at Buffalo's Millard Fillmore Hospital of pneum'onia. He was admitted lo the hospital Dec. 31. Although he left the game in 1950, McCarthy liked to watch baseball on television as evidenced by his comments duripg the exciting 1975 World Series between the Boston Red Sox and the Cincinnati Reds. Mendocino College's tense Eagles counted on some tiniely defensive work by non- scoring Steve Santos and John Gastineau, crucial late-game rebounding by Mike Edwards and Jack Claiinch, and a willingness to keep cool under .pressure to get the job done against Feather River Friday night. It was the first home game of the GVC season for the Eagles, who last night came back to Carl Purdy Court to battle College of the Siskiyous. And it was played before the largest crowd to yet see a college game on the new portable court-in Purdy Hall. The Eagles, now at least 3 and 0 in GVC play as the result of Friday's harrowing, at times sloppy 67-59 victory over Feather River's tall Dudes, Wanted to win so badly for the supportive and expectant home folk, that they literally could taste it. They finally got it, but not before being outboarded, except in those final crucial minutes of a hectic game; seeing shot after shot pop short or in and out; and generally playing • far less beautifully that they normally do and have done in winning 10 of their first 13 games > this season. Luckily Feather River was just as turnover and miss prone at times. But with Kenny Newkirk weighted with four foulfe; Jack Claunch in eiarly foul trouble and the entire team tense and not moving things looked grim for the Eagles of Mendocino against the Eagles of Feather River, which is part of the Oakland area Peralta district though based in Quincy near Oroville! Unable or unwilling to ;nove against the mencing, often aggressive Feather River team, the Eagles' offensive patterns seldom developed. Some fine outside shooting and occasional, drives by Art Larvie, Peter Garrett and Kenny Newkirk; timely baskets by Mike Edwards and Bob Haskin and Jack Claunch and a belated second-half flurry of baskets kept the Eagles ahead-barely-most of the game. Steals by Santos, rebounds by Edwards and Claunch, Newkirk and others, and a willingness to stay cool and play defense and keep "hanging in there, kid" helped Sports (iLKNN KlhCKSON .Sports Editor superior bench that included a mobile John Gastineau,• alert Steve Santos and a reasonably loose., Bob ' Haskin. Santos and a reasonably loose Bob Haskin.. ' Mendocino wound up with 26 fled goals and 15 of 24 from the line-missing numerous costly first shots~to 25 field goals and nine of 19 from the line by Feather River. Feather River lost several key men Qn fouls, while Claunch and Newkirk surved after a shakey and at times super cautious start. Garrett, floor-director and steady scorer for-the Eagles, and Newkirk, despite his comparative caution, each scored seven field goals, Newkirk had seven of eight frdm t^e line, Garrett three- for four, for 21 and 17 points, repectively. • Larvie had 15 points, outside or occasionally inside. Mike Edwards'scored nine very needed points and did a super job on the boards in the late, tougli going. Claunch scored only in the last going when he also began getting rebounds and had four points; while Rdbert Haskin did a fine job defensively and on the boards hnd scored three crucial points. Gastineau and Santos did not score, but they did other things which made the Eagles move when they had to, and score when they had to. Wednesday the Eagles travel to Eureka to play (Allege of the Redwoods and then Friday and Saturday host American River (PlacerviUe) and Shasta of Redding at Carl Purdy Hall. They have six home games- Jan. 20, American River; Jan.21, Shasta;. Jan. 27, Lassen ; Jan. 28, Sierra; Feb. 1, Yuba^.^nd Butte, Feb. 4^ in • a row. Wouldn't it be niqe to win all six? No tall fale; Cats fall short It's no tall story to say that Ukiahi's Varsity and Jayvee basketball teams came out on the short end of the score in both games at Finer Friday night for lack-of height. It's pretty close to the truth. Finer, rated one of the better teams in the Redwood Empire in Varsity play, and no slouch as Jayvees either, won .the Varsity game, 65 to 53; and the Jayvee game, 47 to 35. Tuesday the Wildcats are at home against possibly even taller Sonbma in Oiessall Gymnasium; and Friday the Cats host Casa Grande in Frosh, Jayvee and Varsity contests before starting NB^, play a week from Tuesday at Pelaluma. Piner's Varsity jumped out in front, 23 to 17 in a busy first quarter; the two teams each scored 14 the second quarter; and Finer outscored Ukiah by a point the third period and by dominated the boards; Then, hanging onto a reasonably comfortable lead, and with {he clock its favor, Y*iner made 10 out of 11 free throW |j opportunities in the final minutes good. Ukiah, alas, just couldn't put the ball through the hoop. It rolled aijd rolled and rolled — in and out! If those tantalizing rollers had gone in Ukiah still might Have won the Varsity game. Ukiah had just one less field goal than home Finer, 23 to 24, and the Cats made seven of 12 free shots. But Finer sank 1610 in the final eight minutes or less!' Doug Daut had 17 points and seven field goals for Ukiah'; while Mark Levy and Craig Ullrich scored 11 points each; Tim Walkley and Joe Hurlbut, six each; and Marty Murphy had two points.

"Everybody thinks their day is the best. The old time fighters think they were better than the new fighters, and the new fighters think they're better than the old timers." In addition to the Yankees' seven World Championships, he produced eight American League pennants and one National League title in his 24 years piloting mdjor league teams.

He also played LOS ANGELES (UPI) — Mayor Tom Bradley, his drive to stage the 1984 Olympic Games in Los Angeles encountering growing political resistance from worried taxpayers, has unveiled a "spartan games plan" that would mark a sharp change from recent Olympics. The international Olympic Committee will be told to "take it or leave it," said the mayor's Olympic liaison man. The 149-page plan includes demands the IOC give the city's organizing committee the lucrative television and other broadcast rights and specifies the city does not have to comply with un- desireable IOC regulations. Spending would be held down to the point where no Olympic Village would be built — athletes would be .quartered in various college dormitories — and the swimming events would take place in a temporary aluminum pool erected in the Los Angeles Dodgers' stadium while the baseball team is on a road trip. Tliere would be no ,free accomodations. Nations sending athletes and even members of the IOC and other Olympic movement bigwigs would be required to pay for their rooms, fneals and oilier expenses in ^advance. Bradley called the proposal a "tough, no-nonsense" approach to hosting the Games. The IOC does not officially select a host city until May, but Los Angeles was the only city to apply before the bidding closed. • There liave been increasing efforts to block the games or pi-event the spending of lax money on them. Several local lawmakers are sponsoring, moves to put before the voters a proposal that would write into tlie city charter a flat ban on use of any city money to hojd the games. Bradley and Olympic proponents have promised the taxpayers will not get stuck with large bills, but are trying to prevent enactment of a law that would take t'he power out of their hands. The plan made public Friday ^ the draft of a policy statement to the IOC, for consideration by the City Council — contains a clause providing that "the city's bid will expire at the end" of the IOC meeting in Athens in May. .'\skcd whether that was a "take it or leave it" ultimatum, Bradley's Olympic liais-on, Anton Calleia, replied: "To put it bluntly — yes. 1 wish I could put 'take it or leave it" in diplomatic language, but that's what it is." 'iJnder the proposal, the Games would be financed by ticket sales, money from other levels of government, private donations and sale of the broadcasting rights. Calleia said one reason for tlie high coast of the games to Montreal Was the $23 millipn bill fpr."fi'eebies" to members of the IOC, national Olympic Committees, international sports federations and the' many other Olympic chiefs. 'Payment in advance from participants,will be required, he suid, because many simply left Montreal'without paying tlieir bills. defeated Milwaukee, 128-111; Phoenix beat Detroit, 111-100; Seattle topped Cleveland, 10498, and Golcien State whipped New York, 109-96. , "W'es (Unseld) cut off (Bill) Walton's passing early on; Uien he turned to look for his shots instead of passing," said Bullets' forward Bob Dandridge, who came back to score 22 points after missing two games with a sprained big toe. "It took a lot out of their offense." Two free throws by Dan- ciiidge put Washington ahead, 97-78, with 4:57 left in the final period, but Portland scored 11 unanswered points to narrow the deficit to 97-91 with 1:56 left. with minor league teams in Franklin, Toledo, Wiikes- Barre, Buffalo and Louisville.^ He made his managerial debut in Wilkes-Barre in 1913. McCarthy, who was elected tb itie^Hall of Fame in 1957, listed Lou Gelirig and Bill Dickey as his favorite pi ::yers. He admired Lefty Gomez as a clutch pitcher and called Joe DiMaggio the "most natural player" he ever managed. McCarthy, although noted mainly as a manager, also was a clever storyteller with a spry sense of humor. illit 4/'100 H.T. I .IO 3 01 171. 13 3S SI 4/'100 H.T. I .IO 3 01 C7 .l >l< Itll H.T.
