Friday Night at Spirit Lake ESTHERVILLE DAILY NEWS, THURS., DEC. 21,1972 Page 6 Midgets Attempt 3rd Lakes Win in a Row BY JIM FERREE The Estherville Midgets will try to even their mark in the Lakes Conference at 3-3 Friday night when they clash with the Spirit Lake Indians at Spirit Lake. The Midgets are riding highaf- ter two straight wins in the conference both coming by wide margins. In its latest triumph, Estherville jumped to a 12-0lead over Sheldon and then frolicked to a 71-48 win. The weekend before, the Midgets shot down Storm Lake for the first time since the 1968 cage season and coasted to a 57-48 victory. "We've played outstanding ball the last two games," stated Estherville Coach George Hess who is in his 18th year at the helm. "The only mistakes we've made have been from being too aggressive." Spirit Lake is 1-3 in the conference after dropping its opener to Sheldon 64-55, were dumped by Spencer 98-39 and was thumped by Storm I^ake 79-48. The Indians' only Lakes win was a 60-54 triumph over Sibley Dec. 8. In that game, the Tribe got balanced scoring from three players in junior Mark Westergaard, Gale Gilbert and sophomore Tom Vint. Gilbert is one of the big guns for the Indians and Coach Hess thinks that Westergaard must be one of the most improved ball players on the team. "Spirit Lake is one of the teams that can improve quite a bit over night," noted the Midget mentor. Hess attributes the last two Estherville victories to the ability of the Midgets controlling the game. "I think our success has come in our ability to control the tempo of the ball game. We've been trying to work the ball into the open man and taking the good shot." Bob Hartman and Terry Poulos are only three percentage points apiece in scoring with Hartman averaging 12.6 a game Donald Millwood to Assume Duties at Iowa Lakes Jan. 3 Donald Millwood will join the faculty of Iowa Lakes Community College on Jan. 3, teaching psychology and physical education and assuming the duties of head football and wrestling coach for the leakers.

Simpson of the Buffalo Bills, with a bit of help from the Washington bench, led a nine- player parade into the National Football League's 1,000-yard club this season. It would have been 10 but for a fumbled pitchout. According to the final and official regular-season statistics released today by the league, Simpson led all ground-gainers with 1,251 yards, surpassing Washington's idle Larry Brown in last Sunday's game against the Redskins. Simpson went into the game 66 yards behind Brown's 1,182 but ripped through the Redskins for 101 yards and the NFL rushing title. Brown was kept out of the PUBLIC NOTICE BEFORE THE IOWA STATE COMMERCE COMMISSION OFFICIAL NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING TO THE CITIZENS OF EMMET COUNTY, IOWA: Notice is hereby given that Dan Dugan Transport Company, Sioux Falls, South Dakota, has made application to the Iowa State Commerce Commission under authority of Chapter 327A, Iowa Code 1971, for a Certificate of Convenience and Necessity to operate as a liquid transport carrier of anhydrous ammonia, liquid fertilizer, liquid fertilizer ingredients, in bulk, to and from all points in all counties, Iowa.

Iii TV Blackout Dispute Rozelle Rejects Nixon Request WASHINGTON (AP) - Despite the urgings of President Nixon, the National Football League playoff games during the next two weekends will not be shown on local television in the cities where they are played. Pro football Commissioner Pete Rozelle rejected Wednesday the request of the President to lift the television blackout in the playoff cities. Atty. Gen. . Richard G. Kleindienst, who negotiated with the NFL Tuesday and Wednesday on behalf of Nixon, said in a statement: "I have advised Mr. Rozelle that as a result of the league's decision, the Nixon administration would strongly urge the new Congress to re-examine the entire antitrust exemption statute and seek legislation that is more in keeping with the public inter- Possible Inter-League Play for 1973 Season est." Ronald L. Ziegler, White House press secretary, said President Nixon agrees wholeheartedly with Kleindienst's statement. Pro football received an antitrust exemption in 1961 when Congress specifically permitted any joint agreement by organized professional team sports for the sale of television rights which permitted pro football to offer its games to a TV network as a package instead of individual stations. NEW YORK (AP) - The possibility of limited inter- league play and designated pinch-hitters for the 1973 major league baseball season is a matter club owners will .hammer out at a joint meeting next month. In an apparent effort to stimulate interest, Commissioner Bowie Kuhn announced Wednesday that club owners would take under consideration natural rivals opposing each other for not more than six games for 1973. The proposal would limit inter-league play two such neighboring teams as the Mets and Yankees in New York, the Cubs and White Sox in Chicago, the California Angels and Los Angeles Dodgers, and the St. Louis Cardinals and Kansas City Royals. Kuhn also said the owners will consider adoption by both leagues, or by either league, of a rule which would allow a designated pinch-hitter for the pitcher without the pitcher being removed from the game. The designated player would be permitted to pinch-hit several times during the game.

John O. Pas, tore. The Rhode Island Democrat told Rozelle that unless something was worked out for lifting the TV ban on regular season games, in addition to the playoffs, he would push ahead with a bill similar to that requested by Nixon. The Justice Department statement, supported by Nixon, could add new strength to his commitment. Rozelle said he didn't want to see pro football, as had pro boxing, become what he called a "studio show."
