Quarterback Hunting Seasons Than Last In Spot By DON FORSYTHE Iowa State football coach Johnny Majors probably let Qbcrt Tisdale even get close enough to quarterbacks Dean Carlson and George Amundson to talk to them this week. Obert, who handled the Cyclone quarterbacking chores a year ago, has been shifted to the defensive backfield this year. From his standpoint it will be a lot safer when the Cyclones tangle with Nebraska. The Iowa State offensive line has improved to the point that Cyclone quarterbacks have been thrown for losses while attempting to pass only a dozen times in seven games. Obert never had it so good.

As a matter of fact, he was thrown for losses 12 times in the Nebraska game alone last year as the Cornhusker defense was emphatically superior in a 17-3 win. Whether or not the redesigned Cornhusker pass rush can be as effective against Carlson and Amundson Saturday may well be the decisive factor as Nebraska bids to extend its unbeaten string through 16 games over a two-year span. Like Nebraska the Cyclones have good balance between rushing and passing, but their big play capability comes through the air with Carlson throwing to split end Otto Stowe, who has caught 11 passes for 128 yards in two starts against Nebraska. Meanwhile, the Cornhuskers may offer a slightly different look in their passing game this week. Van Brownson, who has started the last three games for Nebraska at quarterback, has been bothered by an elbow bruise picked up in last win at Colorado.

quarterback Job will remain fluid up to game said Nebraska coach Bob Devaney Thursday. But if Brownson, the Big fourth leading passer, isn't completely healthy by the 1:30 p.m. kickoff Devaney will open with the No. 5 passer in the league, Jerry Tagge. The Cornhusker juniors are the only quarterbacks in the Big Eight boasting completion marks of over 60 per cent.

There was some momentary concern in the Cornhusker camp at mid-week when Dan Schneiss was slowed by an injury incurred in a physical education class, but the big fullback was back at full speed Thursday as the Cornhuskers wrapped up their preparation for the Cyclone trip. rhe Cornhuskers own eight straight wins over Iowa State under Devaney, but all but the 44-0 triumph in 1965 have been tough struggles for Nebraska. Devaney points to last Iowa State-Oklahoma game as a sign that the Cyclones will again be tough. Iowa State led most of the way only to fall in the last three minutes, 29-28. By BOB MUNGER got to admit, the pheasant and quail prospects look pretty Ken Johnson of Lincoln, assistant chief of the Game and Parks Division of Game, said on the eve of the Saturday opening of the two seasons.

I think going to have a better season than last year, and if you remember last year we had a darn good His optimism is not unshared. Commission game managers across the state are echoing his sentiments. George Nason, district game supervisor at the district office at North Platte, says south part of the state looks real good. are reported in good numbers in the Arapahoe, McCook, Imperial, Grant and Wallace he says.

Legal requirements to hunt them are a current hunting permit and an upland game bird stamp.

The daily bag and possession limit on pheasants is three and 15, on quail it is eight and 16, with the entire state open on both species. Johnson says, Sandhills is going to be a relatively thin area for pheasants. It will be spotty, like the northeast, but by and large it will be thin. of the real surprises will be the southeast area of the state, a traditional good area for quail and a poor one for pheasants. In the last few years pheasant populations there have really shot up, and they are continuing to shoot.

southeast looks every bit as good as last year for pheasants, and it was pretty good hunting there last The game managers agree that western best shooting will be in the north- central Panhandle, with the southern part not far behind. In the centra! part, the Rainwater Basin country around Geneva and Shickley will be quite productive. It has been dry, but this should be good for pheasant hunters, as thousands of acres of public hunting ground is available there. The quail populations make every hunter smile. The traditional country of the southeast will be as heated as in previous years, and the bobwhites have returned well along the Platte, Loups, Calamus, Frenchman, Republican and Blue Rivers, according to the game In the Lincoln area, legal shooting hours will begin at 6:34 a.m and an awful lot of pheasants and quail had better be ready for it.

Day of Reckoning Set for Saturday Kansas City (TPt-Saturday is the day of reckoning for the Kansas State Wildcats and the Oklahoma Sooners in the Big Eight Conference football race.

Both must win or else. Assuming that first place Nebraska, ranked fourth nationally, will have things its way at Jowa State, Kansas State must dispose of Oklahoma State and Oklahoma must conquer Missouri or forget about the conference championship for 19T0. The race looks like this: Nebraska 4 0 Kansas State ..............4 1 Oklahoma 2 I The other five teams already have lost at least two games and are generally regarded as being out of it.

The Cowboys wrecked bid last week by downing the Jayhawks 19-7. The biggest aerial show will be staged at Manhattan, where Lynn Dickey will do the pitching for Kansas State and junior college transfer Tony Pounds for the Cowpokes. Dickey, the Big greatest passer in history, leads the conference in passing, and Pounds is in se- i cond place.

also is a great runner, and Hawthorne and Graham are first and second, respectively in Big Eight kickoff returns. James Williams, the No. 5 runner, will be back in the Cowboy line-up. hopes rest on sophomore Joe Wylie, who is second in rushing and has the best average, 6.6 yards, per play of any Big Eight back. He scored three touchdowns in 29-28 decision over Iowa State a week ago.

Missouri will be in its best physical condition since Oct. 3 with the return of quarterback Mike Farmer, linebacker Sam Britts and defensive halfback" George Fountain. The Tigers have the best rushing defense in the conference. Kansas will be facing the most effective rushing offense led by Ward Walsh, John Tarver, Jon Keyworth and speedster Cliff Branch. Branch alone could make a shambles of the defense, the worse in the league.

The engineers have published a report which showed batting averages were lower (.244 as compared to .258) and the strikeout percentage higher (.174 as compared to .160) in night games as compared to day games in the major leagues in 1969. It was too good a hint to pass up and last choices, made in broad daylight, clicked at a 40-11-1 (.799) pace. It boosted the season mark to from .732 to .738.

Jim Palmer, third 20-game winner, had 11 points; Clyde Wright of California nine, and Ron Perranoski of Minnesota five for his one first place vote, the only reliever ever to get a top vote in the balloting. As the first Minnesota pitcher ever to win the award, Perry accomplished what his brother Gaylord of the San Francisco Giants failed to do in the National League.

None of the seven was mentioned on all 24 ballots Perry was named on 19, McNally 17, McDowell 15 and Cuellar 14. Only the 1958 voting produced a similar blanket finish when Bob Turley won with five top votes, Warren Spahn had four and Lew Burdette and Bob Friend three each. Only one award was given for the major leagues then. Perry, who turned 34 Oct. 30, pitched 279 innings last season with a 3.03 earned run average as he helped pilch the Twins to the Western Division title before they lost to eventual World Series champion Baltimore in th playoffs.

McNally had a 24-9 record for 296 innings with a 3.22 ERA; McDowell was 20-12 with 298 innings and a 2.92 ERA, and Cuellar was 24-8 with 298 innings and a 3.47 ERA. All are left-handers. Palmer was third 20-game winner at 20-10 in 305 innings with a 2.71 ERA. Wright was 22-12 with a 2.85 ERA, and Perranoski was 7-8 with a 2.26 ERA and 34 saves. Perry, a crafty 6-foot-4, 195 pound veteran who only reached stardom in 1969, his 11th season in the majors, gained some measure of revenge after losing out to Cuellar and McLain last season despite a 20-6 record.

It was by far his best season with the Twins since he came to them from Cleveland in mid-1963 in a trade for Jack Kralick. He was 9-9 that year and since then turned in records of 6-3, 12-7, 11-7, 8-7, 8-6 and 20-6, working a great deal as a relief pitcher in 1964 and later as a spot starter. At Cleveland, he was 12-10 as a rookie in 1959 and then tied for the most victories in 1960 with an 18-10 mark. But then he slumped to 10-17 and 12-12 before the trade. Big Eight Basketball Coaches Meet Suuday Kansas City, Mo.

All eight of the Big Eight head basketball will be in Kansas City Sunday for the annual clinic which serves as the tip-off to the upcoming basketball season.
