SPORTS MINI-PROFILE: Fran Tar ken ton "I Play Football Because It's God's Will" Francis Asbury Tarkenton, quarterback for the New York Giants, is the Frank Merriwell of modern pro football..Son of a minister, he doesn't smoke, drink, swear, is a devoted husband and father of two, tells you he plays football "because it's God's will" ... He's sometimes called "Fran the Square," and he takes an active role in the Fellowship of Christian Athletes. He also keeps right on succeeding. He has completed more than 50 percent of his passes in 10 years as a pro, has thrown over 200 touchdowns and has the fourth best all-rime record in hb sport Family Weekly, October S, 1971 ... Tarkenton has become a millionaire through outside activities. His "Tarkenton Ventures, Inc." has a number of subsidiaries that operate in the training and education field... His teammates respect him, but some resented his walking out on the team for a while during summer training because he wanted loans from the Giant management as 'a tax shelter, He had already been offered an estimated $125,000-a- season salary ... Raised in Athens, Ga.' (where he quarterbacked a state championship high-school team), Tarkenton keeps his home and business headquarters in Atlanta. His popularity as a clean-living football hero caused both the Democratic and Republican parties to ask him to run for lieutenant governor of Georgia last year ... He was an Ail-American quarterback at the University of Georgia before becoming a pro player, first with the Minnesota Vikings ...

Although his style has sometimes helped him escape tacklers, he says he only "scrambles'' 1 when his pass protection breaks down and the defense comes pouring in... -By Barry Abramson THE DOCTOR LETS YOU IN By Arthur S. Freese doses of Vitamin C in some people have reportedly produced warts and other skin defects. In rodents, too much Vitamin C has caused abortions and congenital defects. Scientists, who nowadays are concerned about ingesting large doses of any chemical, are putting out the word: go slow on these miracle substances-including Vitamin C. Those Massive Doses of Vitamin C: Are They Really Safe? Last year, famous Nobel-Prize-winning chemist Linus Pauling published a book urging the use of enormous amounts of Vitamin C to prevent and r,ure colds. Vitamin C, also known as ascorbic acid, is a chemical substance which prevents scurvy, a disease characterized by weakness, tenderness of the body joints, hemorrhaging, and loosening of the teeth. But physicians are now worried because Doctor Pauling's book has created a run on Vitamin C. Dr. Roy E. Ritts, medical scientist of the famed Mayo Clinic, is one of many who is disturbed at the idea of people taking large doses of Vitamin C without medical supervision.
