He saw the ones that said "Goodbye Wally" hanging in the Astrodome where his Houston Oilers played their home games and did the same thing any other coach would. He ignored.them. Or tried to, anyway. This Sunday winds it all up for Wally Lemm. For Blanton Collier also, except the two cases are entirely different. Blanton Collier has put in 42 years in the coaching business, 17 with the Cleveland Browns alone and on his next birthday he'll be 65, which generally is considered retirement age anyway. Wally Lemm is another story. Even though he has been coaching 27 years he's only 50 and most coaches are just' moving into their prime time Seaver Most Effective NL Pitcher For 1970 J>lstributciJ ti) Kliirj Feature!: Syndicate Saban Named North Coach MOBILE, Ala, (UPI)- Lou Saban, head coach of the Denver Broncos, was named today as head coach of the North squad in the Senior Bowl football game Jan. 9. Senior Bowl officials announced Monday that New York Jets' Coach Weeb Ewbank would coach the South squad in the nationally televised game. "We are delighted to have these two splendid coaches returning," said Theodore K. Jackson, Senior Bowl president. "Coach Ewbank has given us tremendous leadership • for a. number of years and Coach Saban did a teriffic job last year." Saban said he and his assistants were "happy to be asked to return" to the post­ season game. • _ "All of us in the business know the type players your selection committee seeks," he said. "We know we will be seeing some "of these same collegiate seniors scattered through the National Football League the next few years." Ewbank will be making his sixth appearance in the game, and seeking his fifth victory. "Having coached five of the teams and scouted a number of others, I am more than familiar with the ! quality of players recruited for the Senior Bowl," he said. "Every pro club knows the selection committee goes after future professional talent rather than just big names and All- Americas." New PGA Event NEW YORK (UPI) - A $200,000 national match play championship will be held at the Country Club of North Carolina in Pinehurst, N.C., Aug. 25-29, it was announced Monday by the Professional Golfers Association. Joseph C. Dey, Jr., head of the PGA, announced that 64 ranking players will compete in the event, with the eventual ~ winner collecting a purse of $32,000. The new event is replacing the $300,000 Dow Jones Open on the PGA tour. The field will consist of winners of major PGA-sanc- tioned tournaments in the • 12 months prior to it, plus the British Open champion and the leaders on the tournament players division point-exemption list during the 1971 season. Undergoes Surgery ATLANTA (UPI) - Rico Carry, the 1970 major league batting champion, underwent surgery on bis left knee Monday. The Atlanta Braves outfielder injured the knee last week when he collided with Matty Alou when both chased after a short pop fly during a Dominican League game. Doctors said they removed a piece of cartilage from the knee and that Carty's leg would remain in a cast for three weeks and that he would have, to undergo a period of rehabilitation. But they added that he should be ready to play again before spring training begins. Both Carty and Alou were playing for the Licey Tigers in the Winter League. Carty batted .366 during the last season. NEW YORK (UPI)-Tom. Seaver of the New York Mets survived a late-season slump to finish the 1970 season as the National League's most effective pitcher, it was disclosed today by official statistics. Seaver, who had a 16-5 record in early August only to finish with an 18-12 mark which was a bitter disappointment to him, posted a 2.81 earned run average for the lead in that department. Seaver, a 25-game winner in 1969, was. the only NL league pitcher who has.been in the 20-victory circle in each of the last four seasons. The 20- victory season was the fifth of his career for Gibson, snapping a club record which he previously shared with Hall of Famef Dizzy Dean. Perry was the workhorse of the league with 329 innings pitched and also led with five shutouts and 41 starts. Simpson's .824 percentage on a 14-3 record was tops and Jenkins led the circuit with 24 complete then. But Lemm, whose Oilers were torpedoed by injuries and now languish completely out of it in the basement of the AFC.s Central Division, has had it. The injuries and the Oilers' 39-1 record have nothing to do. with his decision. Back in August he told Bud Adams he was going to resign after this season no matter what. Makes Intention Public . . Lemm made his intention public six weeks ago and a long-time general manager I happened to be with at the time said", "If that guy was working for me and told me he was quitting at the end of the season, I'd tell him'Why wait? Here's ymur hat right now.' " That general manager didn't know Wally Lemm too well. Lemm originally told Adams he was going to resign after the season as far back as last August, because he did not want to change his mind in case the. Oilers won the championship. It turned out he didn't have a whole lot to wrry about on that score, but that's irrelevant. The players' strike bothered Lemm more than most. "The coaching staffs were caught right in the middle with no place to go," he said. "I felt that was the last time I ever wanted anything to do with it." There were other reasons, too. Wally Lemm, who first took over the Oilers in 1961 and led them to 10 straight victories" and an AFL championship before leaving to coach the St. Louis Cardinals and then coming back to Houston again in 1966, is a rather reserved man who doesn't open up a whole lot. He did a bit not long ago though. He was talking about his reasons for. leaving. "It Gets You Down" "When you have trouble sleeping, when you have trouble eating and an upset stomach 90 per cent of the time, it begins to get you, down," he said. "The emotion, the tension of the game, have pretty well caught up with. me. I got to the point where^I guess the only enjoyment I was getting out of the game was the association with the players, the scouts and the coaching staff. I spent very little time —very little happy time, let's say —during the season with my family. When you come to this point you begin to feel there are some other things you'd better look into." Lemm, who made his coaching debut with Carroll College in 1942, isn't sure what he's going to do after this Sunday's final game with Dallas. "There are a lot of things I'd like to do that I haven't been able to do since I've been coaching," he says. "I guess I'm getting at an age where I'd like to do some of those things." Wally - Lemm will be able to do a lot of things I'd like to do that I haven't been able to do since I've been coaching," he says. "I guess I'm getting at an age where I'd like to do some of those things." Wally Lemm will be able to do. a lot of things after Sunday. pitcher who worked 162 innings games with an ERA under three runs a game. Wayne Simpson- of the Cincinnati Reds was second with a 3.02 ERA and Luke Walker of the Pittsburgh Pirates was third with 3.04. Bob Gibson of hhe St. Louis Cardinals, who had a 23-7 record, and Gaylord Perry of the San Francisco Giants, who had a 23-13 mark, were the leading winners. Ferguson Jenkins of the Chicago Cubs, 22-16, and Jim Merritt of the Reds, 20-12, were the only other 20- game winners. Jenkins is the only major Wayne Granger of the Reds led with 35 saves, Steve Carlton of the Cardinals had the most losses, 19,. Carl Morton of the Montreal Expos led with 125 walks and Ron Herbel, who pitched for both San Diego and New York, made the most appearances, 76. The Mets* 3.45 ERA was the lowest in the league followed by Cincinnati (3.69), Pittsburgh (3.70), Chicago (3.76), Los Angeles (3.82), St. Louis (4.05), Philadelphia (4.17), Houston (4.23), Atlanta (4.33), San Diego (4.36), San Fcancisco (4.50) and Montreal (4.50).

SHIRTS . . *™ ' from O 50 Lions Slam Rams 28-23 Keep Bowl Chances Alive By JOE ST. AMANT LOS ANGELES (UPI)— The Los Angeles Rams are still in the race for a playoff berth in the National Football Conference but they made it tough for themselves by losing Monday night to the Detroit Lions, 28-23. With their fourth victory in succession, the upstart Lions kept alive, their chances of getting into the contention for the Super Bowl. Now with a 9-4 Hartack Gets 4000th MIAMI (UPI) —Bill Hartack became the fifth jockey In history to reach the 4 ,000- victory mark Monday when he rode a 2-year-old named Roart to victory in the seventh race at Tropical Park. The 38-ysar-old Hartack won by a length but dismounted in the backstretch after the race with an apparently minor hip injury suffered when he bumped the gate coming out at the start. He was driven back to the jockey quarters. Hartack follows Bill Shoemaker, Johnny Longden, Eddie Arcaro and Steve Brooks into the exclusive club of 4 ,000 winners. He had been trying for the victory for a week.- record, the Lions could be the best second team in the NFC if they get by their final foe. Green Bay, this weekend. The Rums have an 8-4-1 record and must get by the New York Giants Sunday to remain in the race. Even so the San . Francisco Forty Niners would have to lose to Oakland in their final game. The two rivals would be tied for the Western Division title. The Rams would then get into the playoffs because their record Is better within the division than the Forty Niners is. Quarterback Greg. Landry, running back Steve Owens and the tough Lion defense against rushing were the big factors in the win over the Rams. The 220-pound rookie Owens, Heisman Trophy winner as a collegian at Oklahoma last year, ran for two touchdowns — four and six yards. He carried the ball 17 times, gained 66 yards. He took the place of Mel Farr, who was injured early in the first period. Farr suffered a shoulder injury. Landry was sacked five times by the Rams for 34 yards but that didn't bother him. He connected on a 26-yard touchdown pass to Earl McCullough in the third quarter and the Lions then were out in front 216. Roman Gabriel hit Larry Smith with a 17-yard TD pass in the fourth quarter and connected to Billy Truax in the end zone for five yards with six seconds left in the game, too little, and too late. The Rams were held to 47 yards rushing. Detroit Coach Joe Schmidt singled out Landry and Owens but had a good for all his players. "I've got a bunch of young kids who don't know when to quit," said Schmidt. "They like to hit and that's the name of the game." Owens got the game ball. rnomm LEAGUE STANDINGS MONDAY NIGHT MENS MERCHANTS BOWLING LEAGUE Team Standings Dextrex Chemicals 30-30 Suburban Lane's 78-42 Slim's Hi-Ho Bar 64-56 Farmers Loan & Trust Co. 62-58 McGraw's 63-57 Plake Floor Covering 62-58 Co-op Service Center 58-62 Moose Lodge 58-62 Manufacturers Life Ins 56-64 Westside Tavern 52-68 Team #5 45-75 Hawkins & Son Cable 34-86 TEAM & HIGH INDIVIDUAL RESULTS McGraw's (D.
