Terry Got The Message Left over nn(f-s on the Lion- Pumas thriller Former I, i n n quartprhark Terry Southall, mm- wilh the Baltimore Colts, was on the receiving rnd of a mllect telephonp call fmm brnlhrr Si minute-! after the RHS victory. Terry quartrrbacked the Lion learn that lost In the l)emons in 11'fi? Si and his males ran up a healthy plume bill for Tfrry, u-ho ran afford it ... Another former Linn QR, Jim Thomason who plays safefv for the Air Force Aca- demv. hoped to make the game and watch brother Gary perform lor the first lime this season. He missed his planr out of Colorado, however, and he. ton. got word of ihr Lion victory via a long distance call. THE GAME'S KEY play had to be a five-yard penalty against the Linns a play before Smith booltd his game- winning field goal with 3:30 left. The Lions were going for a first down on fourth down at the 10 play before the walk-off. That changed the Lions' plans. . . . Browmvood's blocking, both in (he line and downfleid, was overwhelming. Dumas' forward wall was completely manhandled on the three Lion scoring drives. On at least a couple occasions, Lion full- hack David Wallace hurst into thr: Demon secondary and was stopped only by a covy of blockrrs. . . . Opening the holes up front were ends W e n d e 11 Daniel, Griggs DeHay and Damon Smith, lacklos Rob ftnlhe and Doug Slreckerl, guards Robert Smith and Kenny Thomas and center Mike Fuller. . . . Almost l.non fans followed the Lions to Amarillo. "The trip to Fort Worth will be a breather for our fans," Coach Morris Southall said of the well-traveled Lion backers. . . . BlimVNWOOn will serve as the home learn at Kort Worth and Linn fans will occupy the press box side of Amon Carter Stadium. There will be no reserved seal tickets sold. . . . Those fans unable to make the trip to Dumas can see films of the game at tonight's Lion Quarterback Club meeting in the BUS auditorium. Club meets at 7-30 p.m. and ail Central Texans are urged to attend. . . . 3, •-.

The Lions wiU be expected to trim defensive-minded McKinney at Fort Worth Saturday afternoon. the other semifinal of AAA sends El Campo against Seguin at Victoria in the only battle of the week matching undefeated, untied teams. Clays AA can't have a champion with a perfect record because there's only one unbeaten team left—San Antonio Randolph —and it has been tied. Randolph faces a problem Saturday night at College Station when it runs into the Cinderella boys from Kountze. The latter has lost one and tied one but it is the highest scoring team left in the state. Kounze has romped to 448 points in 13 games. Only last week it took 29 points to beat out undefeated, untied Del Valle and that's what Kounlze got, along win enough first downs to win in a 29-29 tie. The other AA semifinal pits piano, now the championship favorite, with Phillips in a battle at Vernon Saturday night, piano earned its lop tag last week by eliminating the No, 1 team, Paingerfield, 14-7.

Sluqfests Mark Bruin Win i*** " Ry THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Not long ago, a visi.l to Boston was the smoothest trip in the National Hockey League. But hospitality is a thins of the past for the battling Bruins, who have, come up with more than one way fo hurt unwanted com- panv. The Bruins, riding high and hard in the early NHL race afl- er eight straight out-of-the-money finishes, stomped the Montreal Canadiens 5-3 Sunday night in a back-alley bash marked by two slugfcsts and 139 penalty minutes. The victory extended the Bruins' unbeaten streak to six games and sent them into first place in the East Division—two points ahead of idle Toronto. Detroit drubbed Pittsburgh (51, New York topped Los Angeles 4-2, Minnesota stunned Chicago 4-;i and Philadelphia beat St. Louis 4-2 in other games. s Launch Bowl Drills By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Texas A&M returns to the football field today but other members of the Southwest Conference will be turning their attention to basketball. The Aggies start practice on a rather informal basis as they prepare to meet Alabama in the Cotton Bosvl Jan. 1. Coach Gene Staliings said the squad would do mostly running this week and he won't even be present, having to attend some banquets and the winter meeting of the conference in Dallas Thursday, Friday and Saturday. He watched Alabama beat Auburn 7-3 in the mud at Binning ham last weekend and said he couldn't tell much about the Crimson Tide under the clrcunv stances. Boston's Don Awrey, a main- event combatant in both slugfests, tied Reg Fleming's single- game record of 37 penalty minutes as Referee Art Skov wore, out his whistle trying to keep order in the first two periods. Awrey, who squared off with Montreal's Dick Dull in the opening period and took on pugnacious Bryan Watson in the middle session, wound up with t>ne minor penalty, three majors, a misconduct and a game misconduct. Duff was ejected following (he first-period fireworks—which Lion QB Club Meets Tonight Brownwood Linn Quarterback Club will hold its regular weekly meeting today at 7:3(1 p.m. in the high school auditorium.

In all, Skov called 17 two-minute minor penalties, 11 five-minute majors and five misconduct raps—including the three match penalties. Halph Backslrom. Ted Harris and Terry Harper of Montreal also were involved in the first- period scrap along with the Bruins' Ed Westfall ,and Ted Green. In addition, Carol Vadnais of "Ihe Canadiens. and Boston's Dallas Smith drew majors lor fighting just 11 seconds after the Awrey-Walson bout. '' Between brawls, the Bruins | wiped out an early 1-0 deficit as i John McKeir/ie scored two goals | and Johnny Bucyk, Fred Stani field and Bobby Orr added one ! apiece. Rookie Mickey Redmond tallied a pair for the last- place Canadiens, who trail fifth- place Chicago by three points and the surprising Bruins by 10. Paul Henderson's fifth goal in five games triggered Detroit's runaway victory over Pittsburgh. Gordie Howe, Floyd Smith. Bart Crashley, Alex Del- veccbio and Bruce JVIacGregor completed the onslaught as the Red Wings remained five points behind Boston in the East Division race. Two goals by Phil Goyette paced the Rangers to their eighth triumph in; nine games against expansion foes. Goyette also assisted on \T3ob Nevin's decisive goal early in the third period and Nevin.';picked up a pair nf assists as New York moved past Chicago into fourth place. ,• Pro Grid Charf By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS National League Eastern Conference Capitol Division W L T Pel.
