Page 4 THE TIPTON (INDIANA) DAILY TRIBUNE Devils Physically Better For two Games this Week PRO FOOTBALL Cowboys Prep PRO BASKETBALL J FRIDAY, JANUARY 8, ,1971 • By Eldon Cage ^ Tribune Sports Editor Tipton High School Coach John Moses stated Fridaymorningthat his Satan proteges were in fairly good shape and ready for the twin bill this weekend, Anderson Highland on Friday night and Western on Saturday night. . Anderson Highland, although small in stature,-holds" a 5-3 record overall and a 3-1 White River Conference record. Coach Dick Mitchell said Friday morning that" he would start forwards Randy Yust 6* Sr. and Gary = Rudig 6' 1" Jr.; center will be Jim Kerr 6' Sr.; guards will be Don Bale 5' 7" Sr. and Larry SwindeL 5* 10" Jr. Two play- DALLAS (UPI)—Tom Landry admits his Dallas Cowboys could be better with a more ers. to see action will "be Phil consistent passing attack, but Graham 6' Jr. and Mike Rousey 6* 1" Jr. The Western Panthers are 5-3 this season and have considerable height for Cpach Moses' Devils to cope with. Western will probably start Jeff Martin 5' 7" and Jeff Eaton 5' 10"'at guards; John Tharpe 6* 4" at center; and Dick Ashburn 6' 5" and Keith Salsbery 6* 1" at forwards. The Chaplin brothers Rick and Mike, will see action if needed. Dick Stewart, Hershell Grinstead, Jim Beesonand Cliff Harrison will be back on the radio for the two weekend games to give their "unbiased" reports of the Devil games. . swears that the team which will face Baltimore in the Super Bowl in Miami Jan. 17 approaches one of his long time goals. "This team is about where I wanted it to be," Landry said today. "We rely on what_ I' wanted to rely on— namely, the Eastern big running game and defense. "We had always hoped we would reach the. point that we didn't have to rely on the big play to win games. But, you use what you have and build around it. "That's why we relied on finesse in past years. We just didn't have the personnel to run the ball down anyone's throat. Mow, I think we have that—and the defense to go with it." The past two weeks have proven his point, emphatically, as the Cowboys used the tremendous running of rookie Duane Thomas and veteran, fullback Walt Garrison to control the ball, eat up precious time and keep the ball away from the enemy's fire power. The club, which bounced back from a 5-4 record to win the Division title with five straight victories, used that "momentum to forge 5-0 and 1710 National Conference playoff victories over potent Detroit and San Francisco. The defense, during that drive,, had a strong of 24 consecutive" quarters without giving up a touchdown—a streak broken on a John Brodie- to-Dick Witcher pass in the Forty-Niuer game.

Indiana State. The Saturday meet begins at 2:00 in the Men's Gym. Early season injuries to 126pounder: Bill Green and 142- pounder Bill Willetts have hampered then 1-2 Hooslers, and now, freshman Tom Mash, a 118- pounder and 134-pounder Mike Milan have turned up with the flu. As if that isn't enough. Im­ pounder John Arbuckle will miss the Michigan State meet for a dental school test. "I just can't seem to find a healthy lineup," moaned Coach Charley McDaniel. "We haven't been at full strength since the season began. It seems as soon as one person recovers that we lose someone else." Willetts, the Indianapolis sophomore who carried a 3-0 record from winning the Indiana State Invitational, could see some action this weekend, although his recuperation from a broken bone in his hand has been somewhat painful. Junior Green, who hasn't competed ina meet all season, is still having trouble with his ^ ribs and his status ts ixteftnite. The HOOFJS,X'S "opponents this weeksfed will provide severe i^sts. Michigan' State won the Big Ten crown a year ago and returns NCAA and Big Ten champion Greg Johnson at 118, and Big Ten champs Tom Milkovich at 134, and Vic Mittleberg, a heavyweight. They defeated the Hoosiers 36-0 last year. Indiana State's top wrestlers are Chico Lutes (118), Bill Sweet (167) and heavyweight,Bill Osborn, all Indiana Invitational champions. ' < •.

Baseball Commissioner Bowie Kuhn announced Thursday that the fourth game of the 1971 series —in ,the park of the National League champion on Wednesday, Oct. 13—will be the first night game in the history of the classic The decision, by Kuhn follows several, years of speculation that baseball would put its showcase event* night for the benefit of national televi sion." I HALL OF FAME! GAME . CEEVELAND !(UPI)-- The Cleveland Indians and the Chicago Cubs.will meet Aug. 9 in the annual Hall of Fame game at Cooperstown, N.V., it was announced Thursday, j He told them, he was all through, with footbali, a game he once loved. Why? It was too dehumanmn?. Dave Meggyesy went further than that. He sat down and wrote a book calling it "Out of Their League." In the book, excerpts of which have appeared in Look magazine, he makes certain admissions and charges. He. admits to \ having tried " drugs and charges that the use of amphetamines and barbi-. tuates. among, pro football players is widespread. 'American War Game' He figures .football in this country isn't anything at all like it started out to be. It's too commercial, and too violent , now. "For some people their big day, of the week is Sunday when they • can tune in on pro footbali," he says. "Twelve hundred men get out there every week, beat the living hell out of each other, and 25- millioh plug into it. Why? It's America's war game. Middle America's theater. If it's theater, why does it have to b§ militaristic? You know how ^ things are today. Woody Hayes' . hero is George Patton.", Meggyesy talks about many ills, in both college and professional football aqd says the NCAA apparently condones these, ills by the head-in-the- sand posture it adopts. He claims his disillusionment with football, started while he was at Syracuse. Confidence Through Beatings "I found out I was being used and that the game did not build the character I was told it did," he says. "I was paid under the table but I can say I wasn't paid enough.' I think the salaries (of college players) should be 10 times whit they are. - Rex Kern of Ohio State . said it: college athletes, toot- ball players aire getting paid about 25 cents an hour. You can figure it out for yourself. When a university goes to a bowl game it's clearing about a quarter million dollars plus the visibility it gets and the alumni feeding money in. This is what big time football is^ in this country." When anybody, asks Dave Meggyesy specifically what he means when he talks about football being dehumanizing he says: "Basically an-athlete needs to develop a certain degree of confidence and exhibit that confidence!' The way he does this on the football field is by beating on another person. When I was" a linebacker the one way I could ascertain a degree of confidence would be to beat on somebody,, to defeat somebody physically over and over again. That's a very dehumanizing process. I think human beings have a" greater capacity than to respond in a situation in that manneri" That's one point I'd never question Dave Meggyesy on. ; JUNIOR 'S "68" SERVICE TIRES A BATTERIES' * TaM -19 * Brake Service •Washing * LubriciUoo • Wheel Balancing ' DIAL 675-2940 at Your Friendly Bank FARMERS LOAN & TRUST COMPANY 110 E .Jeff.
