Players Defection Question MIAMI (AP) - The Miami Dolphins won't lose Larry Csonka, Jim Kiick and Paul Warfield until the 1975 season, but the affect of their defection to the World Football League could be immediate. Coach Don Shula's molding of his team into a close, familytype relationship has been credited with helping them win National Football League titles the past two years. After the signing of Csonka, Kiick and Warfield by Toronto of the WFL, Shula himself admits he doesn't know what attitude will prevail when training camp begins this July. "I certainly hope not," said Shula when asked Monday whether animosity might develop between players, coaches and club officials. "Our whole goal is to go back to camp, put the best players together and try to win the Super Bowl again." Shula said he was misquoted Sunday as saying he might not want to play Csonka, Kiick and Warfield this season. "I've never been confronted with this situation before," he said. "I heard Csonka said they intended to honor their commitment and it was the responsibility of the club to live up to its commitment." Csonka said, "We intend to give the Miami fans 100 per cent effort this season, so I assume they'll hold no grudges against us." Shula's problem is if he plays the trio this year in hopes of recapturing the Super Bowl, he'll face a major rebuilding job in 1975. The alternative is to begin rebuilding now with new players. But that would require major changes in offensive strategy, which has been built around the bull-like rushes of fullback Csonka with Mercury Morris and Warfield keeping defenses honest with outside runs and pass patterns. Don Nottingham was acquired last year from Baltimore where he started, but at 5-foot-10 and 210 pounds, he could hardly be expected to provide the durability or the power which made Csonka's line charges so threatening. Csonka is a 6-2, 237-pound bomb aimed at the line about 16 times a game. He has gained over 1,000 yards the last three seasons, a lot of it strictly on brute strength. Warfield's experienced successors are Howard Twilley, 29, and Ron Sellers, 27. Twilley saw little action last year because of back problems and Sellers was inactivated by two leg injuries. Kiick played behind Morris the last two seasons and would be the easiest to keep on the bench. The next in line is Charlie Leigh, 28. a proven reserve who should have recuperated from a dislocated shoulder suffered in the playoffs last season by the time camp opens.

The World Football League isn't kidding around when they lured Larry Csonka, Jim Kiick and Paul Warfield to the Toronto Northmen of the new league for a package deal of $3-million. The signings of these three superstar players is certain to cause a threat to the NFL. It might not take evidence for a couple of years, but it surely will come sooner than expected. The three Dolphins gave Miami general manager Joe Robbie a chance efjieeping them. But his mom*y? offer wasn't enough so you can't blame them for going for the "big money." Anymore, the name of any big sport or business is money. The signings not only Will touch off a war with the NFL for players, but could cost the Canadian Football League (CFL) dearly. Players in the CFL who couldn't make it in the old AFL which merged with the NFL, surely will try to go with a World Football League team because of the $$$. Right now, Toronto is the only WFL team in Canada and if the Canadian government has its way they'll have to move. If certain Canadian legislators have their way, the Northmen won't play in Toronto. The WFL franchise, some say, constitutes a threat to the Canadian Football League. It would divide fan interest and open the way for further incursions into other major Canadian markets such as Vancouver and Montreal. Whatever happens one thing is for sure. The WFL has the three Dolphins and you can bet that more NFL players will defect to the big money. Trout Stocking Attention trout anglers, it's that time of year again. Iowa Conservation Commission fishery officials have announced that all northeast Iowa trout streams where road conditions are accessible, will begin receiving newly stocked catchable size (half-pound average) rainbows and browns the first week of April.

The use of plain barrels for floatation devices is prohibited. New regulations pertaining to floatation materials used in floating facility type docks have been recently adopted by the Iowa Conservation Commission. These rules are: (1) all new structures shall use floatation methods of a type constructed Of low density, closed cell, rigid plastic foam (styrofoam); high impact polyetheylene fiber glass; wood timbers; or other inert materials. Secondly, iron or steel containers may not be used for new structures or replacement of approved structures unless they are filled with low density, closed cell rigis plastic foam (styrofoam). As in the past all docks on waters under jurisdiction of the Conservation Commission must be constructed under permit from the Commission. Permits may be obtained by contacting the Conservation Commission Waters Officer in your area. The officer will also provide the dock owner further information and advice concerning dock specifications and regulations which must be followed.

The Commission is conducting simultaneiously two contests to selct the designs for the 1975 Iowa trout and duck stamps. By The Associated Press Hank Aaron is ready to play ball. . . even if he isn't ready. The reticent superstar, who'd prefer not participating this week in Cincinnati, sharpened up for the 1974 baseball season with a home run in Atlanta's 7th spring training victory over Baltimore Monday. Aaron, with 713. had hoped to break Babe Ruth's home run record of 714 in Atlanta and originally indicated he would sit out the Braves' three-game series with the Reds. But he has been overruled by Baseball Commissioner Bowie Kuhn, who in effect recently ordered Aaron to play at least two of the three games against the Reds. Aaron's blast, his third of the exhibition season, was struck as a designated hitter. The homer was one of five the Braves hit Monday. Dave Johnson hit two homers, and Dusty Baker and Ivan Murrell one each. Elsewhere, the Milwaukee Brewers defeated .the Oakland A's 6-2; the Boston Red Sox nudged the St. Louis Cardinals 5-4; the Cleveland Indians tripped the Chicago Cubs 9-2; the Cincinnati Reds crushed the Pittsburgh Pirates 15-9; NEED SHINGLES?

Helped by two Oakland errors. Milwaukee broke a 2-2 tie with four eighth-inning runs to defeat Oakland. Sal Bando's three-base error put the Brewers' Bobby Mitchell on third base to start the eighth, and two walks, a ground-rule double by Bob Coluccio, a wild pitch and Pedro Garcia's two-run triple did the rest. Rico Petrocelli hit a two-out, ninth-inning home run with a teammate aboard to lift Boston over St. Louis. Cleveland raked Steve Stone for three triples and two doubles in the opening innings and went on to rout Chicago. Gaylord Perry, pitching seven innings for the second time this spring, limited the Cubs to four hits. Roger Freed, already reassigned to a Cincinnati minor league club, hit two home runs and added a double and a single to help the Reds crush Pittsburgh. The Chicago White Sox came from behind with three runs in the sixth inning and got three scoreless innings from reliever Wayne Granger to edge Minnesota. Winning pitcher Mike Torrez hit a bases-loaded triple off Steve Carlton. giving Montreal its victory over Philadelphia. Rising Costs Eat into Farm Profits WASHINGTON (AP) Individual farmers can say it better by explaining to the penny how rising expenses are eating into profits, but the latest statistics by the Agriculture Department are telling the same story. Over-all, prices farmers pay to meet expenses rose 1.5 per cent during the month ended March 15. The index, the Crop Reporting Board said in releasing the figures last week, was 17 per cenfabove March 15.1973. "Prices paid by larmers tor motor supplies in mid-March averaged 7.0 per cent above February. Higher prices for motor fuels were largely responsible for the increase. Motor supply prices were 34 per cent above a year ago," the re- port said. Prices farmers pay for feeder livestock, particularly cattle, were down 8 per cent from Feb. 15. But those averaged 12 per cent above a year earlier. The index of prices farmers pay for feed also dipped 2 per cent—but it was 30 per cent above March 15 last year. Thus, the cost of energy to operate farm machines and prices of feed for cattle, hogs, dairy herds, poultry and other livestock are far more costly now than for any spring season on record. Another set of figures in the report puts another perspective on the feed situation by relating those costs to what producers get for various types of items.
