Final Regular Season Home Tilt ESTHERVILLE DAILY NEWS, FRL S FEB. 4, 1972 Page 7 Host Tornadoes Tonight This is the weekend for sports in Estherville. And the Midget cagers will kick off the action Frfriay night by hosting conference leading Storm Lake in their second meeting this season between the two teams. The first game went into overtime before Storm Lake edged out a 66-62 win. Last week the Midgets got firmly imbeded in third place in the Lakes standings after losing to Cherokee in a double overtime and only have the honor left yet of knocking off a leader plus seeing if they can again play with a rated team. Ironically the Midgets' three losses, two to Cherokee and one to Storm Lake, have all come against Lakes Conference foes and by a grand total of 10 points. And Estherville was in all three games, two of which were overtime, until the final buzzer. Storm Lake will take a 74.5 offensive average into the game with all games being in Lakes action while the Tornadoes are holding opponents toameger 44.5 points a game. Estherville is the only team this season to score over 60 points against the Tornado defense. Estherville, on the other hand, goes in witha78.6offensiveaver- age in the Lakes Conference and an even 58-point defensive aver­ age but have been involved in three high scoring games this season. For all games, Estherville is averaging 75.6 on offense and giving up just over 58 points a game on defense. The game also marks the final regular season home game for Estherville, with the season scheduled to wrap up with games at Sheldon next Friday, at Algona Garrigan Feb. 12, and at Spirit Lake Feb. 18. Overall in the standings, Storm Lake's 11-0 record is on top, Cherokee at 10-1 in second, and Estherville's 8-3 record third. The remainder of the league drops below the .500 mark with Spencer holding fourth at 5-6, Sibley 3-8, Sheldon 3-8, and Spirit Lake 1-10.

In other league action tonight, Spirit Lake travels to Sibley, Emmetsburg has the honor of traveling to Cherokee, and Sheldon invades Spencer. The only real challenges inthe play will be Sibley and Sheldon making a bid to gain a first division berth from Spencer and Spirit Lake trying to climb from the cellar. Big Time Athletic Costs Pinch Iowa DES MOINES- (IDPA)- The spiraling cost of operating a big time athletic program is catching up with the University of Iowa. A state audit released Friday for fiscal year 1971 shows that the Iowa athletic department spent $225,000 more than it took in at the gate and received from other sources. However, because of a sizable balance at the start of the year plus a transfer of money from the physical plant fund, the SUI athletic department finished the year with a $235,876 balance. As in the past, the only sports to go. into the black were football and basketball. But with a 3-6-1 record under Coach Ray Nagel the football profits dropped to only $280,000; the basketball team had a profit of $35,000. The total sports program cost $1,863,384 with football bringing in $1,205,227 which includes $91,375 from the Rose Bowl plus $1,31,110 in other Big Ten Con- LEAGUE BOWLING MONDAY , IMPERIALETTES LEAGUE Pizza King 11 1 Iowa Trust &Saving Bank 10 2 Emmet County Bank 10 2 Imperial Beauty 5 7 Pnbrie-tas-tics "5 7 Hoye Rexall . 4 8 Arlene's Beauty 4 8 Dave's Photography 4 8 Clair's Variety 4 8 Hammond Oil 3 9 High Team 3 Games Dave's Photo 2152 Hoye Rexall 2057 Pizza King 2050 High Team 1 Game Hoye Rexall 808 Dave's Photo 777 Dave's Photo 710 High Individual 3 Games Sally Steil 596 Bev Whitacre 495 Bev Smith • 482 High Individual 1 Game Sally Steil 209 Bev Whitacre 201 Sally Steil 198 AMERICAN LEAGUE TUESDAY Smitty's 12 4 Golden Sun 11 5 Rock Island 11 5 The Cardinal 9 7 Riverside Beauty 9 7 Arts-Way 7 9 Mortimore's 7 9 Leo Lenz Ins. 6 10 Laidig South side 5 11 Krenn's Uphl.

Losses on other programs at Iowa included wrestling, $102,412; baseball, $95,489; track, $88,080; swimming, $48,664; gymnastics, $69,193; tennis, $42,228 and golf $43,348. The financial picture for the current fiscal year isn't expected to improve much as the Iowa football team with Coach Frank Lauterbur at the helm is going through a rebuilding program and had a disappointing 1-10 record last fall. Even so, football receipts are expected to match those of the previous year. Iowa Athletic Director Chalmers (Bump) Elliott acknowledged that because of inflation and rising costs it has become exceedingly difficult to have a balanced sports program and still make money. ; 1 "I think it is important that we examine every phase of our operation to stay within our budgetary limitations and we fully intend to do this," said Elliott. •.,» ''Iowa .hasialways sustained a strong 'program in sports and we do not wish to drop back in any area even though a particular sport might not be revenue producing," he added. The fiscal year ending last June 30 was one of extraordinary expense for the Iowa athletic department. To begin with the board in control of athletics voted "termination pay" for Nagel and six of his assistants. This came to : $30,239 of which Nagel, now athletic director at Washington State, received $12,000. State Auditor Lloyd R. Smith notes that Nagel's contract expired on Dec. 31, 1970, but the board voted to pay Nagel and his staff until June 30, or until they relocated. The state auditor points out that all of Nagel's assistants had "appointments" rather than formal contracts. The audit also shows Elliott started his career as athletic director at Iowa with the challenge of finding nearly $50,000 to underwrite athletic scholarships for the previous fiscal year. Smith criticized the former administration for deferring the scholarship payment and urged the board in control of athletics to require the department's records be recorded on a "full accrual basis." "This one improperly handled transaction," Smith said, "allowed net income to be overstated for the 1970 fiscal year and to be understated for the 1971 fiscal year by $49,902." The state auditor also recommended that in disbursing scholarship money to athletes the department distinguished how much is attributable to each sport rather than lumping everything into one general account. The auditor's office also discovered that the athletic department has been paying no state sales tax on adminission tickets sold by the athletic department of opponent schools for athletic events which took place at Iowa City. In addition, the auditor's office found the athletic department has been violating a state revenue department rule whlcVi requires tax to be paid on com- plfmeritary tickets. The state auditor reports all sales tax has been paid for which the department is liable going back to Aug. 1, 1967, when the Legislature voted to impose the tax on athletic events. Smigi said the sales tax liability on football for prior years was $4,526 and $478 on basketball. For the year under audit $2,192 was paid in sales tax on complimentary football tickets and $280 on comp basketball tickets. Other major schools in Iowa reportedly are similarly involved on collecting the sales tax. The audit is also critical of the financial arrangement made to Robert Flora, an assistant athletic director under Forest Evashevski. Flora was informed by Dean Robert R. Ray that as of July 1, 1970, he was being assigned to the extension division at a salary of $17,000 with his services to terminate April 30, 1971. Smith said records show that Flora was paid $8,000 from athletic funds and $9,000 from extension service funds. The state auditor said that "good business practice" dictates that Flora's salary should have been charged to the department where services were rendered. Furthermore, Smith added, it's understood that Flora only worked several weeks for the athletic department and the remainder of the year for the extension service.

Award First Olympic Medals SAPPORO, Japan (AP) Russia and The Netherlands claimed the first gold medals at the Winter Olympic' Games and the determined United States hockey team battled its way into the Class "A" competition in the first full day of action. Ard Schenk the fleet Dutch speedskater, and Vyacheslav Vedenin, one of the Soviet Union's corps of powerful Nordic skiers, took the golds in Friday's only two medal events. Schenk, half blinded by snow, raced to the 5,000-meter speed skating crown in 7 minutes, 23.61 seconds, slow by his standards but no easy effort in the blizzard-like conditions at the Maomanai open air rink. Heavy snow ringed the track as Schenk zipped around the rink, little more than one second off the Olympic record of 7:22.40 set by Fred Anton Maier of Norway in the 1968 Games, but well off his own world record of 7:12.00. Norway captured both the silver and bronze medals in the event, Roar Gronvold taking the second spot in 7:28.18 and Sten Stensen third in 7:33.39. Schenk skated in the first pair when the wind was not as>. fierce as it turned out to be later. The snow was his main problem, especially in the final 1,000 meters. "Then it began to hurt my eyes. I have seldom skated in more difficult conditions," he said. The best American finisher in the speed skating event was Dan Carroll of St. Louis, who finished 10th in 7:44.72. Vedenin, a 30-year-old soldier, hung back In the early stages of the cross-country skiing and was seventh when he made his move. He overtook Paal Tyldum of Norway to capture the gold. A silver medalist in the 50- kilometer race of the 1968 Games, Vedenin was timed in 1 TerriPs, Everly's Marks Tested in Action Tonight State Line Race Resumes Tonight hour, 36 minutes, 31.15 seconds for the 39 kilometers which equals 18.6 miles. Tyldum's 1:37.25.30 took the silver medal and Johs Harviken of Norway earned the bronze with 1:37.32.44. Vedenin was only the second non-Scandanavian ever to win a gold medal in individual Olympic ski racing. The best American finish was by Mike Elliott of Durango, Colo., who finished 26th in 1:43.15.03. The best American clocking was 2:34.57 by Boris Said of New York and Thomas Beck of Plattsburgh, N.Y., who were 13th. SOMETHING NEW...! Terril's boys and Everly's girls will put their perfect Corn- belt Conference marks on the line tonight as the league swings into the final two weeks of play. In the boys' division, Terril clinched a tie for first place with West Bend falling and three teams, Mallard, Everly, and West Bend, sitting in the wings with 4-2 marks. With only two games left the Tigers would have to lose both and one of the three second place teams win both to master a tie. Currently in fifth place are Graettinger and Sioux Valley with 3-3 marks while Marathon is seventh, Ruthven eighth and Sioux Rapids already firmly lodged in the cellar. Everly continues to lead the girls' division with a 6-0 mark, Ruthven is still challenging with a 6-1 record and idle tonight, Terril is third with a 4-2 record, Sioux Rapids at 3-3 is fourth. Rounding out the conference are West Bend and Sioux Valley in fifth, Mallard and Graettinger seventh and Marathon ninth. The Terril boys also hold a commanding edge in the scoring race, putting in 493 points in the six games, an 81.8average, while Graettinger's 410 points is good for second place and 399 by Sioux Valley is third. Ruthven has 405 points but one more game already played. Defensively Everly has surrendered a meger 315 points to cop the lead, Terril is second with 328, West Bend's 358 third.
