(NBA)— This is not siesta time oh the pro football beat. The calendar still allows a good 10 weeks to scriout head -knocking in the football lagers of the NFL. But for the young entrepreneurs, the guys who want to cash in on their pigskin cum laikte, the soring is assembly time. The freshman class of the Oakland Raiders (augmented by several sophomores) gathered here recently and prominent among them was a' hatchet-' faced young bock from Mississippi Southern University who already has introduced a new dimensiort to the Raiders' game plans. He is Ray Guy, their No: 1 draft choice — a man chosen solely for his ability to rocket a football long and high distances off the instep of his right foot. It is an exact science, punting. Although Guy was also enough football player to intercept eight passes last fall as a college defensive back, he is already re* signed to • role which will probably put him on the field for no more than four plays a game (the Raiders panted 56 times all of last seasen). For that limited duty he no doubt will be seeking a mtiHi- year contract of some $30,000 per annum. . He'll be worth whatever they give him. "He'll be," said coach John Madden solemnly, "the best kicker in the history of professional football." Madden had just watched the tall (Woot-2%-inch , southerner spiral punts the length' of the Raiders* practice field in- a pasture just beyond the motel which is their training Headquarters in this somnolent northern California valley. The ball flattened tufts of grass SO yards and more from Where Guy was swiftly taking one step forward and arching his right leg skyward. Heads were turned up. Joe Scanella, the assistant coach in charge oi special teams, thumbed a stopwatch which started with the contact of Guy's foot against the ball and ended when the ball hit the ground. "Fifty-Six," announced Scanella. "Fifty-two . . . fifty-eight . . . sixty." Translated, that meant the punts were hanging in the air, respectively, 5 .5 seconds, 5.2 seconds, 5.8 seconds and a startling 10 seconds." "Hang-time" has suddenly become the catch phrase of the Oakland Raiders. A hang-time of 4.5 seconds, allowing the kicking team that much leeway to rush downfield and cover the punt, has always been regarded as super. Guy's hang-time will affect the way the Raiders play football.. Since the Raiders, one of the most successful pro teams of the last decade, were near the top of the league in offense, one .might wonder why the stress on such a basically defensive weapon as the punt. Well, the Raiders' brass, led by Madden and general managing partner Al Davis, demonstrated by shoving the ball back to the 30-yard line. Guy lined up in the normal punter's spot 15 yards farther back, booted high and handsome. The ball consistently landed within the 20-yard line at the other end of the field, territory a receiving team abhors. "Before," illustrated Madden, "when we were on our own 20 we had to play it conservative, trying to work the ball out past the 30 and 40. Now we can open up our attack right away because even if it doesn 't work, the kid puts us in good field position when we have to give up the ball." In college, Guy averaged 46.2 yards per punt for his varsity career (including blocked kicks). The best in pro football today, Jerrell Wilson of Kansas City, has averaged 44.2 for his 16 seasons. Coincidentally, Wilson was also a Mississippi Southern product. They even have the same lawyer, Bud Holmes of Hattiesburg, handling their contracts. "Jerrell and I were out kicking the other day," said Guy. "But he doesn't try to help me. He says a punter has to have his own style. Jerrell holds his hand on top of the ball when he gets ready to kick. I hold only my right thumb over it. We step different, too." That's another amazing facet of Guy's punting. Most kickers, like Wilson, take three steps forward to boot the ball, coming within nine yards of the line of scrimmage. Guy takes one step with his right foot as the ball is being snapped, another step with his left, and — BOOM — the ball is rocketing upward. He gets rid of it within four yards and under two seconds (most teams allow a punter three seconds to kick). What, to Guy, is the thrill of this special talent? "To sit back there," he said in that soft "yes-suh" drawl (he's from Thompson, Ga.), "and watch that thing climbing." Beefy-faced John Madden was equally rapt as he turned and squinted upward into the spring sun. (Newspaper Enterprise Assn.)

Steckleberg and his wife, Jan, GHS Golfers End Season With Victory j MONMOUTH - The GHS golf team closed out their 1973 season with a 7-3 record on the strength of a 152-153 win over Monmouth at the Monmouth Country Club here Tuesday. Seniors Doug Allensworth and Rusty Cunningham paced the Streaks, both firing 37s. Jim Benbow shot a 38 for Galesburg, and Bill Klapp carded a 40 to round out the varsity scoring. Monmouth's Bill Woodall was medalist for the meet with an iven par 34, but the Zippers did not have enough balance to pull out a victory. In JV action, the young Streaks won easily with a 274$11 victory, over Monmouth. Fcott Bitcon, Gary England, Sreg Goad and Doug Frakes all shot 45s for Galesburg. Brad Nelson finished at 46, followed by Robbie Owen's 48. tire staff is looking eagerly toward having the Stecklebergs join the Knox community;" Knosher added.

The way things stand at this writing, Galesburg will be playing the winner of today's Prince ville-Wyominggame on Thursday afternoon at East Moline This, of course is entirely dependent on an unpredictable weatherman. Originally Prince ville and Wyoming were to bat tie Tuesday with the winner going against the Streaks today. However, rain and wet ground wiped things out yesterday and pushed things back a day. Another rainout would move the title game to Friday. The Streaks, who came from behind to defeat Moline Monday, currently boast a 17-2 rec- ,ord with 15 wins in a row. They 'won the district tournament played at Williamsfield last week. It was a 2-run triple by Rick Wilder that capped a 4 -run sixth inning and gave the Streaks the 4-3 victory. Forry Franckey got the win against Moline, allowing five hits while striking out 10 and walking just two. Coach Bob Beal says he will be sending Danny Jacobs to the mound in the title game. All games are scheduled to start at 4:30. Horse Club Holds Trail Ride, Show The Galesburg Boots and Saddle Club held a trail ride and horse show at the club grounds in Knoxville May 13.

Johnston to Leafs BOSTON (UPI) - Veteran goalie Ed Johnston of the Boston Bruins was sent to the Toronto Maple Leafs Tuesday to conclude the pre-playoff deal that put veteran netminder Jacques Plante in a Boston uniform for little more than a month. Johnston, however, declined to state whether or not he would report to the Leafs. Car Disqualified From Indy 500 INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (UPI) — A car qualified by Sam Posey and later "bumped" to standby status for next Monday's Indianapolis 500 was kicked out of the race Tuesday by the United States Auto Club on the grounds of misrepresentation. In addition, USAC's director of competition, Dick King, announced a $1,000 fine against the Champ Carr racing team of San Juan Capistrano, Calif., and a $250 fine and one-year probation for chief mechanic Jack McCormack. USAC acted on the recommendation of Harlan Fengler, chief steward at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, who also fined the team $100. King said the penalties were assessed "for attempting to misrepresent Car No. 34 as Car No. 31 by transferring serial numbers and decals. "Evidence is conclusive that the team attempted to pass off Car 34, which already had been qualified by Sam Posey, as Car No. 31—a purported new car," King said. Champ Carr personnel had three days to appeal the USAC ruling. USAC said the racing team would have to post a $5,000 bond, which would be returned at the end of the championship season, providing no other violations occur. The ruling did not affect Champ Carr's No. 35 racer, which Jim McElreath will drive in Monday's million - dollar chase. Tom Bigelow's car was elevated to the first standby position, and Jim Hurtubise's racer is now the second alternate.

READ THE WANT ADS! Pitcher Wise Doesn't Want^t Moline Ti.,,. Ti i • TT* T Kace Kesults Hitting mile in His League NEW YORK (UPI) - Rick Wise is one pitcher who doesn't want to see the designated hitter rule adopted by the National League. Wise, considered by many to be the best bitting pitcher in the majors, enjoys taking bis cuts and quite often helps his own cause wMi timely hits. Wise showed off both pitching and batting skills Tuesday night as he led the St. Louis Cardinals to a 5-3 victory over the New York Mets. The 27-year-old right - hander allowed only three hits over eight innings and contributed a two - run double in a five -run seventh^inning rally that sewed up the victory. Wise's double came after the Mets had intentionally walked Mike Tyson to load the bases The Mets managed only one scratch bit off Wise through six innings and didn't really get him into trouble until the ninth when he tired and had to be relieved by Diego Segui. Actually, Wise might not have turned out to be the game's hero had it not been for a men-! tal error made by Mets' third baseman Ken Boswell in the seventh that paved the way for the Cardinals' big inning. Jerry Koosman had blanked the Cards on three hits over the first six innings but got into FIRST RACE: (mile pace) — A G Eddy (Mac Gibson). $4.80, $3.40. $2.50. Time 2:09.2.

As Koosman was getting ready to lace Ken Reitz, catcher Duffy Dyer and Boswell both started toward the mound but neither remembered to call time. Simmons, seeing third base uncovered, easily stole the base. The Mets- then were forced to play the infield in and Reitz grounded a single through it to score Simmons and ignite the rally. Southern Hosts District Four NCAA Tournament CARBONDALE — Southern Illinois University baseball coach Itch Jones wasn't bound to let a little past history keep him from being excited about SIU participating in and hosting the NCAA District Four playoffs May 31 - June 2. "I mink this only goes to show the kind of respect people have for our baseball program," said Itch.

Previous host teams haven't had that much success playing on their home diamond, however. The last team to host and win the district playoffs on its own field was Ohio State in 1966. "Regardless of the site," said Itch, "I feel we have the team to make it back to Omaha for the College World Series. That's been our goal all year long." A key member of the SIU pitching staff is Robbie Deny, a Galesburg product. The young southpaw is currently 5-0 with four saves and a nifty earned run average of 1.70. Joining SIU in the double- elimination tournament are 2614-2 Minnesota, the Big Ten champion, 18-8 Marshall of Huntington, W. Va., the other at-large team besides SIU, and a yet - to - be - determined Mid­ American Conference champion.
