By MILTON RICHMAN UPI Sports Writer NEW YORK (tJPiy-Gale Sayers still is getting help from Brian Piccolo. That could hit -you a little strange considering Brian Piccolo has been dead for nearly six months now, but you wouldn't think it was strangest all if you knew the deep feeling which existed between the two men. Gale Sayers probably Is the greatest running back in the Chicago Bears' history, which is saying something when you take into account Bronko Nagurski was a running back for them also. More than that, Gale Sayers is a genuinely warm, decent human being. Although he once got up on his feet in u banquet room and told a packed : audience that he loved Brian Piccolo, don't get the idea he's one of those peculiar football players Dave Meggyesy has everybody talking about. Acquaintance With Courage Brian Piccolo, who was Gale Sayers' backup man, and roommate with the Bears, died of cancer last June at the age of 26. Two weeks before Piccolo died the New York chapter of the Professional Football Writers' Association presented Sayers with the George S. Halas Award as the most courageous player in pro football because of the spectacular way he returned following an operation on his right knee the season before. When Gale Sayers stood up to accept the award, he didn't talk about himself, he talked about his roommate, Brian Piccolo, who had just finished a series of cobalt treatments in a hospital a few blocks away and had gone back home. "He has the heart of a giant," Gale Sayers said, "and that rare form of courage that allows him to kid himself and his opponent, cancer. He has the mental attitude that makes me proud to have a friend who spells out the word courage 24 hours a day of his life. "You flatter me by giving me this award but I tell you here and now that I accept it for Brian Piccolo. Brian Piccolo is the man of courage who. should receive the George S. Halas Award. It is mine tonight, it is Brian Piccolo's tomorrow ... I love Brian Piccolo and I'd like all of you to love him, too. Tonight, when you hit your knees, please ask God to love him..." •At Least I'm Here' A guy was talking to Sayers here Wednesday about^ his second knee operation eight weeks ago. This time the surgery was on his left knee, and the Bears' brilliant running back admitted the knee still was a little weak. "Are you worried?" the guy asks Sayers. "No," he says softly but! firmly. "How come?" "Well, for one thing I've been through this before," Sayers said. "For another. thing, my association with 'Pick' has' helped me. When this second knee injury came along and I knew I needed an operation, just having been around Pick made me accept it much better. I didn't say 'Why me? Why me?' Look, at least I'm here." . Gale Sayers has written a book along with Al Silverman, the talented editor of Sport magazine. The book is called I Am Third-"The Lord Is First, My Friends Are Second, and' I Am Third"—and if you don't read it believe me you're missing something. Viking is GOODf YEAR Pick your pair...

A big brother is the guy who never lets you tag along. He is who says, "You're stiU a baby" and sends you home. He's the guy that dares you to tell the gag you're his kid sister — But he always tightens your skates so you won't get a blister. A big brother, is the guy with cowboys and Indians and toys all over his room. Who teUs you, "Ifyou touch just one," it will surely be your doom. He's the guy who takes the wheels off his little blue pedal car And gives them to the kid next door Just because you were going to tell Mama "to make him let your ride Just once more.. . A big brother is the guy who is suddenly growing very tall, And for some reason, stopped minding when you go along, at all. You secretly think he's the best looking boy in town, Even though you're always putting him down. A big brother lets the guys know you're not just his. kid sister — he's your BROTHER And. if they ever do you wrong, they're in for big bad trouble, mother! He's the guy who knows a lot of groovy fellas, But never introduces you cause in his opinion they're the wrong kind. But he'll drive an extra time around the block so maybe,that certain guy will see you and unwind. He's everything you look for and hope to find in your first beau, But you know you never will, cause they don't make them like him any more. A big brother is a tease and a protector, a shoulder to cry on— A great guy you loved having around — the big ham!! Now that he's not just your Big Brother, but a sailor visiting Uncle Sam. — LINDA WHITE . WASHINGTON • MARCH OF EVENTS- SENATOR MUSKIE NOT ALWAYS SO LIBERAL HE'S STILL FIRST CHOICE OF DEMOCRATIC PARTY Senator Muilcie Different r tviews in '58 By HENRY CATHCAKT Central Press Washington Correspondent. • .' W ASHINGTON—Democratic Party liberals who are rallying behind Maine's Sen. Edmund Muskie may be rather surprised with his,political posture when he first ran for the Senate in 1958. Running- against a Republican incumbent in a generally Re' publican state, Muskie blasted the Eisenhower administration for allowing the nation's military strength to, fall from 1.1 million to 870,000 men.: He accused the GOP of foolishly whacking the defense budget and therefore allowing the Soviet Union to wipe out America's lead in missile weaponry. Attacking his GOP opponent because "he feels hesitant to suggest something needs to be done to strengthen our foreign program," Muskie declared, "I am interested in recognizing, factually, the threat of Communism abroad." Turning up these glimpses-from Muskie'.s past is "Human Events" Capitol Hill Editor Allan Ryskind, who is in the early stages of research for a book on Muskie. > The probable publication date will be 'just four-years after' Ryskind authored another critical study of a Democratic presidential contender. That book,'written in 1968, was "Hubert." Ryskind has discovered another interesting quote from Mus- kie's first Senate campaign. On the stump in Maine, Muskie angrily rejected what he called his opponent's attempt to "stamp me as some kind of undesirable ultra liberal, in a class with. Senators Morse and Humphrey." * * -* * • CHANGES HIS STANDr—Today, of course, Muskie is courting McCarthyite liberals, not Maine Yankees. So he calls for cutbacks in the defense budget and .harshly assails U.S. policy in Southeast Asia. ' While Muskie is clearly the early favorite for the presidential nomination. South Dakota's Sen. George McGoverh will be the first to enter the race. The outspoken dove is said to be planning to make the announcement shortly after the first of the year. McGovern's popularity ratings are nowhere near the level of Muskie's among Democratic Party pros, but his early entry into the race could prove troublesome for the Maine Democrat.' Some suspect that the McGoveifri campaign" could prove to be a holding action on the part of the party's peacenik' faction to prevent Muskie from locking up the nomination before '72. The feeling among these political strategists is that McGovern probably could not gather enough votes to win the nomination.' But by blocking Muskie he could pave the way for Sen. Edward Kennedy, D-Mass. 9 TED STIIX IN THERE—Kennedy's supporters were encouraged by his showing in a.recent Gallup poll of Democratic voters. Teddy was the presidential choice of. 31 per cent oXthe Democrats polled, only two percentage points behind Muskie. When Republican and independent voters were added, Muskie received 31 per cent rating, and Kennedy dropped to 20 per cent. McGovern was favored by less than 2 per cent of the poll. . Look for the Democratic national convention to be a more controlled affair In '72. Because the Democratic Party picked up a majority of state governorships last fall, governors with the power of patronage will be heading a majority of delegations. That was not the case in "68 and was in part what caused the bitter party bloodbath. Convention ToUle More Controlled Dear Linda's Brother: Merry Christmas, wherever you are! H. Dear Helen: My roommate and I were sitting in our dormitory room at Kent State University pondering — s not about revolution or killing or any of those things associated nowadays with Kent.
