Shortest Draft Ever ESTHERVILLE DAILY NEWS, THURS., FEB. 3, 1972 Page 9 The Rich Get Richer On Way to Victory Rick Johnson, Midget 132 pounder, recorded one of three Estherville wins by gaining a 4-1 decision against Spencer's Bob Ginger. Johnson is shown being awarded two points by the referee on a reverse in the third quarter. The Midgets' next action is in Estherville, 1 p.m. Saturday against Cherokee in the final dual of the season. Competition will be held at the Roosevelt Gym due to the high school gym being tied up with a Concert Saturday night. (Daily News Photo by Chuck Ostheimer) NEW YORK (AP) — the rich—namely, Dallas and Baltimore, the last two Super Bowl champs— apparently got richer In this week's National Football League draft. "At first glance," said an executive of one NFL team, who requested that his name not be used, "I'd say Dallas and Baltimore got the best of it over-all. The Cowboys got nine players in the first four rounds and the Colts got some real good athletes, particularly in the second round when they had three straight picks. "Other teams that did well in the first two rounds were Green Bay, Cincinnati, Chicago, Denver and St. Louis, and, of course, Buffalo got the very first pick in defensive end Walt Patulski of Notre Dame." The shortest NFL draft ever wound up Wednesday evening after 19 hours and 26 minutes, but the 26 teams still managed to select a full complement of 442 collegians over the 17 rounds in what was considered a lean year for pro prospects. Although they picked 26th and last in the opening round, the world champion Cowboys managed to come up with the player they ranked No. 6 in the country, 227-pound running back Bill Thomas of Boston College. With three choices in the second round, the Cowboys' famed computer went for Houston running back Robert Newhouse, whose 1,757 yards in 1971 made him major college football's second highest single-season ground-gainer; John Babinecz One Brief Hour of Peace SAPPORO, Japan (AP) Clouds of dissension hanging over the 11th Winter Olympic Games all but dispersed Thursday as the sun shone down on Emperor Hirohito of Japan and a throng of 50,000 at Mako- manai Skating Stadium for the 'glittering, opening ceremonies^..^ The solemn rijua),' patterns of, bright colors, sunshine on the snow and pageantry obliterated for one brief hour the bitterness over the expulsion of Austrian ski star Karl Schranz. Schranz, kicked out of the games because he made money from advertising, did not even attend the ceremony. The Austrian team, which at one time had threatened a mass walk-out in protest, was outfitted smartly in red and white uniforms, and marched into the arena and saluted the emperor with as much dignity as any of the other 34 national squads. The Olympic hymn was sung, the flag of the fiy« rl|ig8 w%s hoisted and the sac^gd 01 flame was ignited in its cauldron atop the stadium, all according to tradition. Now all is ready for the start of the games— ice hockey eliminations Thursday and the first figure skating, speed skating, bobsleigh and luge events Friday. The opening ceremony, in this outdoor stadium set amid Eye Protection For Endangered Species DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) Anyone convicted of killing an eagle, hawk, whooping crane, swan or owl could be fined up to $1,000 and lose his hunting license for three years, under a bill passed by the Iowa House Tuesday. The bill, approved 82-6 and sent to the Senate, would set maximum bag and possession limits the Iowa Conservation Commission may set for various kinds of game. Rep. William Gluba, D-Davenport, proposed the amendment to impose stiff penalties for killing endangered species of wildfowl. The Conservation Commission says only 116 eagles are known to be nesting in Iowa at present. Gluba's amendment would set the penalty for killing or taking an eagle, iiawk, whooping crane, swan or owl, or possession of the nests, eggs or plumage of them, at from $180 to $1,000, or up to 30 days in jail. The amendment also would require the court to revoke the hunting license of the offender and the commission to refuse him a new one for at least three years. The .bill would set the maximum daily bag limits for gray or fox squirrel and quail at eight and the possession limit at 16. These would be the maximum bag and possession limits on other kinds of game: Cottontail or jackrabbits, duck and snipe 10 and 20; pheasant 4 and 12; geese 5 and 10; woodcock 5 and 10; partridge 3 and 6; coot and rail 15 and 30; ruffed grouse 4 and 8; wild turkey 1 and 2; and deer 1 and 1. The commission would be authorized to set hunting seasons for all these species from Sept. 1 to the following March 1, ex­ cept that the wild turkey season could be between Sept. 1 and the following May 15, and pheasant season must be between Sept. 1 and Dec. 1. The House voted down, 47-37, an effort by Rep. Daniel Bray, D-Davenport, to repeal the present law allowing county boards of supervisors to set bounties on different animals. the lovely snow-clad mountain landscape of Hokkaido, was a color television •» producer's dream. It began with the teams marching past the royal box in strikingly contrasted uniforms, g^L,n»h 18,000joaUpons released "ancl^TioTSfea' oke bombs leaving rainbow patterns in the sky. The choice of team uniforms ranged far and wide. The Finns looked like black-and-white penguins, the Russians like furry brown bears, the Swiss like delectable red-and-white candy canes and the Spaniards like matadors in black-and-red capes and cordobes hats. The United States men's squad, in black leather coats that cost $160 each, made a big impression. But the American girls, in boot-length red capes, had a strange look of volunteer nurses. By tradition the Greeks, heirs of the athletes who competed in the first games more than 2,000 years ago, led the parade. The Japanese, as host nation, marched last, in all-white outfits that blended with the snow. Izumi Tsujimura, a Japanese girl, skated gracefully into the arena with the Olympic torch, which started out Dec. 28 on its traditional journey from Athens. Hideki Takada, a Japanese runner, bore it up the car­ peted staircase and ignited the Olympic flame. Two personalities in the ceremony caught the imagination of the crowd. One was Avery Brundage, 84- year-old president of the International Olympic Committee, whose dedicated campaign against professionalism led to the ban on Schranz. The jaunty old president, a black fur hat on his head, strode into the center of the arena and spoke in English and Japanese, calling on the emperor to open the games. The other outstanding figure was Ingrid Lafforgue, the brilliant French ski star who was kept out of the games by a broken ankle. She limped proudly into the stadium bearing the commemorative Olympic flag which had been in the custody of Grenoble, France, since the last Winter Games were staged there in 1968. Miss Lafforgue, chosen to represent the mayor of Grenoble, handed the flag over to the mayor of Sapporo. The ceremony took place in bitter 17-degree weather. Foreign visitors bundled themselves against the cold and looked with amazement at the Japanese women in kimonos who stepped daintily through the snow in sandals to the stadium entrances. of Vaillanova, a 220-pound linebacker with speed, and flashy wide receiver Charlie "Earl the Pearl" McKee of Arizona. Round 3 found Dallas choosing Michigan linebacker Mike Keller and Utah kicker Marv Bateman, who led the nation with a 48.1-yard punting average. In Round 4, the Cowboys tapped Northern Michigan linebacker Tim Kearney, San Diego State wide receiver Robert West and Perm State linebacker Charlie Zapiec. The Cowboys went into the draft looking for depth at running back and linebacker and when they filled both holes relatively early, a representative of one club shook his head in disbelief. On later rounds, after taking a flyer at semipro defensive back Charles "Doc" Bolden, the Cowboys came up with such prospects as North Carolina A&T linebacker Ralph Coleman, Oklahoma running back Roy Bell, Florida State defensive end Richard Amman and North Carolina A&T defensive end Lonnie Leonard and the disbelieving headshaker muttered, "It's disgusting!" The Colts' first pick was 256- pound tackle Tom Drougas of Oregon and in the second round they added Jack Mildren, Okla- homa'a Wishbone quarterback who will get a shot at defensive back; Michigan wingback Glenn Doughty and Penn State running back Lydell Mitchell. Baltimore was looking for young talent at wide receiver and quarterback and unearthed three of the former and two of the latter, not counting Mildren. The wide receivers were Doughty, Michigan State's Eric Allen, who holds the one-game major college rushing record of 350 yards, and Herb Washington, Allen's teammate. The quarterbacks were Van Brownson, who backed up Jerry Tagge for the national champion Nebraska Cornhuskers, and Little All-American Gary Wichard. On the first two rounds, Green Bay came up with San Diego State cornerback Willie Buchanon, Nebraska quarterback Tagge and Chester Marcol, a record-setting kicker— 62- yard field goal—from tiny Hillsdale College. Cincinnati picked California defensive tackle Sherman White and Louisiana State defensive back Tommy Casanova; Chicago selected Southern Illinois offensive tackle Lionel Antoine and Iowa defensive back Craig demons; Denver chose Houston tight end Ri­ ley Odoms and St. Louis went for running back-wide receiver Bobby Moore of Oregon and Arizona linebacker Mark Arneson. Wednesday's selections included the ageless Washington Redskins' taking 27-year-old running back Moses Denson, by way of Maryland State and the Montreal Alouettes of the Canadian League. The Redskins, who traded most of their early draft choices as George Allen built his Over-the-Hill Gang, were shut out during Tuesday's first seven rounds. Their eight-round pick of Denson brought mock cheers from the other teams. Michigan had the most players drafted— 10— and the Wolverines' conference, the Big Ten, also led with 43. Notre Dame and Wisconsin produced eight draftees apiece while 32 came from the Southeastern Confer­ ence, 31 from the Big Eight and 30 from the Pacific-8. Other first-round picks included Stanford defensive end Greg Sampson by Houston, Georgia guard Royce Smith by New Orleans, Jackson State wide receiver Jerome Barkum and Michigan linebacker Mike Taylor by the New York Jets, Stanford linebacker Jeff Siemon by Minnesota, Penn State running back Franco Harris by Pittsburgh. Also, Florida quarterback John Reaves by Philadelphia, Notre Dame defensive back Clarence Ellis by Atlanta, Colorado defensive end Herb Orvis by Detroit, Texas A&I corner- back Eldridge Small and Nebraska defensive end Larry Jacobson by the New York Giants, Michigan defensive back Tom Darden by Cleveland, Auburn wide receiver Terry Beasley by San Francisco. Big Ten Eyes'Redshirting' By JERRY LBKA Associated Press Sports Writer CHICAGO (AP) - The Big Ten finally may join the rest of the nation's major conferences in "redshirting" and perk its sagging football prestige. The Big Ten's athletic directors Tuesday unanimously approved a recommendation by football coaches to provide an additional year of eligibility in which to complete four years of varsity competition. Big catch to the action, which concluded a two-day meeting of directors and coaches, applies to both football and basketball players: Approval must be given by the conference faculty respresentatives at the league's regular March meeting. Observers have noted a growing change in sentiment for the five-year rule, especially with more and more students, athletes and otherwise, needing five years to complete under­ graduate work under present academic standards. Even with approval at the March 6-8 meeting, the matter must be submitted to a 60-day review by school councils. If one school rejects the proposal it must be reviewed by the joint group at their May meeting. If then passed by a majority vote, redshirting would become effective starting the 1972-73 school year. Commissioner Wayne Duke, former chief of the Big Eight, said: "It's difficult to speculate on the final decision. But around table discussions, people who were against the five-year rule, before, now are in favor of it, and that includes certain faculty representatives." At present, only the Big Ten and the Ivy League among the country's major conferences, do not practice redshirting, allowed by the National Collegiate Athletic Association. Coaches of the Big Ten contend redshirting is one of the prime reasons the Big Eight last season made euch a show of strength in sweeping Nebraska, Oklahoma and Colorado to the top three places in the final Associated Press national poll. Concluding the two-day meeting, the directors also discussed the over-all problem of disruption at conference athletic events and planned efforts to increase crowd control, security and other facets of game administration. The directors ratified the action by Minnesota and Commissioner Duke in suspension of Minnesota basketball players Ron Behagen and Corky Taylor for their part in a vicious game-ending brawl at the Gopher-Ohio State contest in Minneapolis Jan. 25.
