Colorado rolled out enough foot-1 ball gunnery to start a Big Eight revolution here yesterday, but Missouri used a maximum silencer named Gary Lane to quell the uprising, 20-7. It took all the poise that) has earmarked veteran Ti-i gers all season to save the day. The Buffs threw their whole offensive book at the M. U. defenders, including a whopping 32 passes. Quarterback Bernie McCall connected on 19-of-31, but the alert Tiger secondary picked off ! four and that was too steep a 1 hill for fiery Colorado. Colorado still was much in the , game, down only 13-7, until the 10-minutes-left mark hit the clock. Then McCall launched on over-the-middle pass to Tad Polum-bus. It was thrown just a bit high, bounced off his finger tips, :and linebacker Rich Bernsen j hauled in the rebound on the M.U. 49 and ran it to the Col-orda 46. In seven plays, the Tigers ; had their final margin and fbe suddenly quiet crowd of 32,500 ! L05ER5 1 was slowly filing for the exits. Lane Does Job There were two big plays in the push, both by Lane. On sec-ond-and-7 at the Buffs 30, he 1 followed a lead block by Charlie Brown around left end for nine ' yards. After Carl Reese picked i up five over guard, it was execution time for Colorado. Lane rolled right with Brown trailing.

Boston swung past Rogers, and one Buff blocked his path only une null Uiuchru ms to the goal. Schuppan Clears Way Boston set the block for Dan Schuppan. it was made and Boston ran in for the 6-pointer. Bernsen kicked the seventh point, and only 1:59 had elapsed. I This should have stunned the i Buffs, but they and their fans -acted as if nothing had happened. McCall came out throwing. He mixed flare and release throws with power slashes hy William Harris and Kstes Banks to drive to fourth-and-fi on the Misouri 30. In came Rogers, who has Continued on Pace 3S in Wings in publicity and a record 45.-000 advance season-ticket sale. At the start, at least, Namath will have first-class company sitting next to him on the bench John Iluarte, pro footballs most expensive taxi squad member. The Notre Dame rookie drew a $200,000 bonus from the Jets, but has been relegated to the taxi squad thus far this season. Huarte, however, makes road trips and listens in on the overhead phone as part of his schooling. He also was working out with the squad yesterday. taliaferros starting assignment with Namath in reserve has been the pattern the Jets have followed all season. Ewbank admitted his wealth of quarterbacks has its profitable points, but there is a debit side to the ledger and in New Yorks case the ledger shows a bleak 1-5-1 record. We fooled around with three quarterbacks in pre-sea-son, the veteran pro coach commented. It hurt us. We never could get set. But we had to. We didn't know what they could do. We had to find out.

D.s Spark De La Salle Over Sedalia, 27-7 BATTLE BACK Startled, 13-0, Smith-Cotton Closes Gap to 13-7 By Gary D. Warner (A Member of The Star's Sports Sta' I)e La Salle wound up halfback Don Davis and turned him loose for two beaten first-quarter touchdowns last night that sent the un- , Titans crunching toward their ninth straight!0 victory, a 27-7 conquest of Sedalia Smith-Cotton. D, proved he cold j any of the Smith-Cotton defen - j sive backs, and did it three i times. He found a groove around j right end and stuck to it for both hi touchdowns in the first j period and another in the third. He startled a Bishop O'Hara crowd of about 3,ooo on I)e La Salles second play of the game. going 73 yards to score 1:25 deep in the game. Six minutes later, after the Titans got themselves some running room by moving from their 10 to the 33, he left everyone astonished with a 67-yard scamper. Smith-Cotton, beginning to look like the Star's No. 10 out-state Missouri Class L team in the second period, crossed the midfield stripe just 35 seconds beiore the half ended, and opened the second stanza with a rush that threatened to make the came a real toughie. Starting out at their .37. the Ti- gers opened with halfoack .Jim Arnest going 28 yards to the Ti- tan 35. Seven plays later, the drive was at De La Salle's 20 with fourth down and a long five to go when quarterback Russ 1 Cusick crossed up the Titans big defensive line and hit Jim Vinson with a jump pass tor a ; touchdown. Bill Herrick's boot ' made it 13-7. It was the closest the Tigers were to come to winning the 1 game. De La Salle, starting from its .33 after the kickoff, used up 10 plays going the 67 j yards to Sedalias ecd zone, ' with fullback Mike Beach bull-j ing into the Tiger line for 29 of J them. Following form, the last 17 yards were covered by Davis ; again around right end. After Sedalia took its last ; crack at closing the gap. and i failed, the Titans started out i again, this time from their 40. Tony DeAngelo lost two. but Beach alternated power with grace and picked his way to the Tiger 13. Three more plays and the Tl- tans had a first down on Smith-Cottons 8-yard line. Rebori kept to the 4, Beach bounced off the Sedalia line for a yard and Re-: boris sneak got to the half-yard j . j line. On fourth down the quarterback leaned over his line for De La Salles fourth T. D. Terry Bednicks second try for the P. A. T. (Smith-Cotton was offside on the low-and-awav first try) made it 27-7.
