Saturday's 33-20 victory over Southern Cal- fornia, Pruitt scored on runs of 2, seven and 75 yards. On the fctird one, he seemed to slow own as he approached the goal line and taunt the Southern Cal defender chasing" him. Pruitt denies it. "I have a. habit of. looking >ver my shoulder when 3 run," he says. "I wask< just looking sack. I wasn't .teasing anyone. •When I-look back,., if a guy is lose, I have to run. If he's not, here's no need in running that hard." • * COLLEGE RECORD In three games this season, Pruitt has run hard enough to gain a whopping 411 yards in a mere 3£f carries for a 10.6 aver- ige.'The.major college record s 9,62 by Arizona State's Leon 3urton in 1957. Saturday's show was Pruitt's 'best day ever," according to Coach . Quick - Fairbanks.

"He's always been a great blocker."

"It's a helluva thing to say, said Richie Hebner Tuesday after first throwing 'the ball away and permitting the Giants to tie the score in the sixth inning and then taking the game away from them with his winning homer in the eighth, 1 would've liked to have given hockey a try.

The .Denver KANSAS CITY (AP) - The Kansas City Chiefs call middle linebacker Willie Lanier "The jn lc .. ^ Broncos will agree that the nickname fits. Lanier was very much a bear on the prowl in the Bronco backfield last Sunday in Kansas City's 16-3 American Football Conference victory over Denver., . . , The bruising Lanier' made eight unassisted -tackles and was credited with two assists, broke up a pass play and recovered a fumble at the Chiefs' 35-yard line when the Broncos, leading 3-0, threated to pad their margin in the first quarter. FOR FIRST TIME For Jiis performance, Lanier was -named The Associated Press defensive player of the had a good feeling Sunday about the game with the Broncos. It turned out pretty well. Yes, it's nice to get something for the first time. That was ail Willie had to say about Mr. Lanier, the ringleader of the defense that limited Denver to nine first downs. A FEW WORDS Teammate Aaron Brown had a few words about Willie. "We were fantastic," Brown said. "When they had a yard or a half yard to go for a first down, Willie stopped them," Floyd Little, the Denver running back, had something to say too. "Everytime I earned the ball," Little said, "Lanier tackled me." , • 'Lanier tackled Little three times in the first quarter for week, an honor bestowed on Willie for the first'time. "It's great to get a first," Lanier said today. "An accolade is always pleasant but my teammates on defense were terrific. I.always try to -play consistently on' defense in every LJ.S.

' ; "'" . ••••'• Both Oklahoma Gov. .David Hall' and House Speaker Carl Albert have pleaded with. the National Collegiate Athletic Asssociation (NCAA) to lift its ban and permit the game between the two undefeated college powerhouses to be televised.

Austin, the home of the University .of Texas, and to Dallas, where the game is being played. The Cotton Bowl's 70,000 seats for the game were sold out last. year. RESTRAINING ORDER A judge in Tulsa County, Okla., issued a temporary restraining order against the NCAA Tuesday to force the game to be televised in Tulsa County. A hearing to make the order permanent was set for Thursday. "'• • The ' NCAA has refused to televise 'the game in Oklahoma because other \games are being played in 'the state -at the same time, .and within 400 miles 'o: Dallas. The NCAA said only, if these games were genuine sellouts, could the OU-Texas game be televised in Oklahoma "Our rule is that those games will ,be damaged by such a telecast," NCAA publicity director Tom Hansen _ sale Tuesday. "And our definition, o: damaged 'is that the games are being played within a 400-mile radius and are -not televised.' Gcv. Hall told the NCAA: "Your report conclusion ffiiat elevising this game woSld detract from the attendancepof james in Oklahoma is idfca- jreed upon by this office wid others in Oklahoma. We_;v?o«ld expect negligible changes<v-;in attendance patterns at these fames." '^~. Hansen said the NCAA's -400- mile radius rule is designate jrotect i attendance at small college games. £. "The people of Oklahoma mow what it means when ttnly 30,000 attend a game, in; a 60,000-seat stadium," Hansen said. "But it's just as tru«£ if you have a 2,000-seat stadium and only 1,000 attend. You '2tiH iave "hurt your income by^SO :er cent. And that income* is iust as important to a "small school as it is to a big school." Hall said the NCAA's" Hjan denied Oklahoma citizens their rights and created the potential of a massive traffic'jam.;-- GREAT EXPENSE .:; 'Many loyal Oklahoma fens will be driving to that viewing area at great expense andlwill add to already heavy hazardous highway traffic conditions," Hall said. "Personal safety!; of Oklahoma people is involved." ..Dorothy Johnson, who runs one of the switchboards into ^the Governor's office,, said '."a fantastic number of people are calling. "They think it's unfair," ;she said. "They think it's ;an arbitrary decision by -;ihe NCAA.

"Sure," he said. "When home, I will. My father superintendent of a cemetery in West. Roxbury, about miles from Boston,, and I him." : ' •'How much d'o you get?" somebody wanted to know. "Thirty-five dollars a grave," Hebner said. - "Do. you . make a ' lotta: money?." "The faster I dig, the money I make. It's all pick and shovel. Some people.thought it was a gag at first when they found out I dig graves, but it's no gag. I really do it. How long does it take me to dig a grave?
