Urbana McGuire, transfefed to Seattle Unir versity as a junior from Yakima Valley College, a two-year school, in 1978. He is a graduate of McKinley High School in Washington D.C. , . ; Tom Schneeman, former assistant basketball coach at Washington State ' and Detroit, was appointed to replace Schalow for the rest of the season, McDuffie said. Schneeman's most recent job was as an assistant at Bellevue Community College. McDuffie said NAIA officials and both schools were notified of the forfeits, which go into the record books as 2-0 scores and drop Seattle University to 1-2 for the season. The sports director also said two freshmen team members, Bobby Basnight and Doug Thompson, both of Seattle, had been ruled academically ineligible for the rest of the season. - Earlier, academic problems prevented the return of four members of the 1979-80 Seattle University team Bernard Hill, Tonby Barnes, John Harper and Lawrence Brooks. All were junior-college transfers. SEATTLE (AP) - Jack Schalow has been fired as basketball coach at Seattle University for using an ineligible player on the team, says Richard McDuffie, sports director for the Chieftains. ' McDuffie said Friday that Schalow was fired because he "knowingly played the ineligible athlete," senior Andre McGuire, in games Dec. 15 against Lewis-Clark State and Dec. 16 against Whit worth. The Chieftains have forfeited both National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics games. "It is our judgment that such conduct on the part of a coach that is, playing an athlete who is academically ineligible is unacceptable," McDuffie said. "That is a lie. It is untrue," Schalow insisted. "I did not know he was ineligible. "I do not want to say anything more or elaborate until I have talked to the (university) president, the vice president and my attorney. I will have a statement to make at the appropriate time." Schalow, working in the final year of a three-year contract, was hired after Bill O'Connor was fired as Seattle University coach in the spring of 1978. with Pennsylvania, Alabama and Florida.

Lake maps are available from the Kansas City District Office, U.S. Corps of Engineers, 700 Federal Building, Kansas City, Mo., 64106. Local ice fishing started one week ago today at Dawson Lake with about four inches of ice. Most anglers were catching bluegills on waxworms, but they were on the small side. With clear ice, without snow cover, and sunny days, these fish will be in deep water except for early and late in the day when the sun is lower in the sky.

Glenn sends Knicks to one-point victory NEW YORK (AP) - Mike Glenn hit an 18-foot jumper from the left of the key with one second left to play Saturday as the New York Knicks rallied from a 15-point first-half deficit to defeat the Kansas City Kings 100-99 in National Basketball Association play. By Ted Schanafelt Deer hunters throughout the state bagged more than 20,000 whitetails to set a record during the recently-completed firearm season. A total of 5,942 whitetails were bagged during the second weekend according to Forrest Loomis, Department of Conservation forest game biologist. During the first weekend, 14,341 deer were harvested, making the total 20,283 which is about 300 more than last year. , The small increase is probably due to an increase in the number of hunters rather than an increase in deer population, Loomis said. The 1980 harvest indicates that deer members are beginning to level off, like other upland game species, and that the 1,000-2,000 increase of a few years ago are past us. The Mississippi River bottom numbers were up, but the Southern Illinois numbers are starting down which might be due to the bad crops that beset the southern portion of the state. An unknown variable affecting deer management is the impact of poaching, which usually increases in hard times. The recent raids in the west-central part of the state is proof that it is going on in a big way. Hunters enjoyed good conditions throughout most of the second weekend. Since most of the farmers had harvested their crops before the first weekend, the deer were encouraged to leave the cover of agricultural fields and return to their normal forest habitat. Top counties during the second weekend were Adams (270); Pike (242); Jo Daviess (221); and Hancock (194). Hunters bagged 357 deer on Crab Orchard Wildlife Area. Conservation officers issued 369 citations. Totals for area counties, preceeded by totals for the second weekend are: Tazewell (43, 123); Woodford (58, 112); The Illinois Department of Conservation Police Officer Corp has 13 openings which will be filled by persons who satisfactorily complete the State Merit Exam in January, which will be administered in Springfield, according to Carry Closson, law enforcement chief for the DOC.

By The Associated Press While six teams figuratively sit on sidelines, the National Football Conference's Los Angeles Rams and Dallas Cowboys and the American Conference's Houston Oilers and Oakland Raiders meet today to determine who shall take the next big step on the road to Super Bowl XV. Those other six are the division winners, the teams which earned a first-round bye in what has now become a four-story climb to the National Football League championship. The Philadelphia Eagles and Atlanta Falcons know they'll be hosting the second round. If the Cowboys win today's game, they'll be in Atlanta and Minnesota, the third NFC division champ, will go to Philadelphia. But if the Rams win, they'll visit the Eagles while the Vikings will head into Falcon territory. AFC possibilities In the AFC, Oakland will play at Cleveland if it beats Houston and San Diego will host Buffalo in the second round. If the Oilers win, they'll head out to San Diego and Buffalo will meet the Browns in Cleveland. Only one wild-card team, the 1975 Dallas Cowboys, have made it as far as the Super Bowl (interestingly, they knocked off Minnesota and Los Angeles along the way). They were beaten by Pittsburgh, the second of the four Super Bowl games won by the Steelers. It's taken a long time to get to this multi-tiered level. A long time ago, it was just one step. In the early 1960s, the two division winners met for the NFL title (while two other division winners met for the championship of that "other" league, the still-young American Football League. Origin Back then, there was no Super Bowl. It wasn't until Jan. 15, 1967, following the 1966 seasons, that just winning a league title wasn't enough. That became the preliminary to the NFL-AFL championship (they didn't call it the Super Bowl until a couple of years later). In 1967 and for the succeeding two years, while the AFL remained a two-division (Eastern and Western) league, the NFL split into four divisions within Eastern and Western conferences. NFL trivia buffs will remember the Capitol, Century, Coastal and Central divisions. Thus, it became three steps in the NFL to the ultimate title: the two division winners within a conference meeting, then the two conference winners playing, then the NFL champ playing the NFL champ. Wild card The three steps remained when today's two-conference, six-division setup was established for the 1970 season following the finalization of the merger. That's when "wild card" entered the lexicon of sports with two runner-up teams, one from each conference, making the playoffs along with the six division winners. The second wild card in each conference, bringing in the fourth step, was added for the 1978 season. That's where it stands today. In this year of transition, the most notable changes in the playoff format are that Pittsburgh isn't a part of it for the first time since 1971 (the last time Cleveland was a division winner), Buffalo is a division champion for the first time since the 1966 AFL season, Philadelphia is a division champ for the first time since 1960 (when it won the NFL title) and Atlanta is a division champ for the first time ever. Oakland, a preseason selection by many to finish at or near the bottom of the heap, surprised everyone by returning to the playoffs after a two-year absence.
