Then Host Algona Saturday Night ESTHERVILLE DAILY NEWS, THUR&, JAN. 11. 1»73 Page 10 Midgets Seek Revenge With Rated Spencer *f—~vii»f "i ?iB«tai The Estherville Midgets have a busy weekend in store for them when they clash with ninth ranked Spencer Friday night at Spencer then host Algona Saturday night. But probably the game everyone has been looking forward to is the rematch with the Tigers who are sitting atop the Lakes Conference with a perfect 7-0 record. In Kstherville's first meeting with the Tigers Nov. 17 Spencer guard Brian Stief stole a Rob Bothweli pass to Terry Poulos in the final 30 seconds of action and scored a layup to put the Tigers out in front 60-58. Following the game, Estherville Coach George Hess said, "We learned a few things." The Midgets did learn quite a bit for they are now tied for third in the Lakes Conference with a 4-3 mark. Estherville has won four straight Lakes games and a win over the Tigers would put them in contention for the Lakes championship. "We're going to have to see what they're going to do offensively and then defense them," stated the Midget mentor. The Tigers are sparked by brothers Brian Stief and Rick. In the November match with Estherville, Rick pumped in 17 points while brother Brian poured in 14 to pace Spencer. "They're big underneath," noted Hess, "and we've got to force them to make a lot of mistakes." Spencer will start 6' 5" junior Clark Johnson and 6' 2" Rick Stief. "We'll probably be doing some alternating in the guard court because Terry Poulos has been down with the flu but we hope he'll be back at full strength by game time," commented Hess. Spencer's only loss came at the hands of fifth rated Harlan. The Tigers have been defeating teams handidly with the only other close call besides the Estherville game coming with Cherokee. The Tigers downed the Braves 57-54 in that contest. "The important thing when you Axe Falls on Four Colleges play a team such as Spencer is to stay close and then wait until you get a good scoring spurt," stated Hess. Estherville is getting balanced scoring from three Midgets in Terry Poulos, Brian Guge and Bob Hartman. All three are averaging a solid 11 points per game. Hartman is averaging 9.7 rebounds a game. The Midgets host Algona Saturday night and Coach Hess reports that "they are big and have three or four starters off of last year's squad." The Estherville sophomores will play both teams with action getting underway at 6:45 p.m. Friday and Saturday nights. Varsity play will immediately follow. CHICAGO (AP) - The National Collegiate Athletic Association launched today one of the most important annual conventions in its 67 year history after punishing four members for infractions of the NCAA code. The group's governing council Wednesday placed Centenary College of Shreveport, La. on indefinite probation and Western Kentucky and New Mexico State on two-year probation—all three for basketball program violations— and meted a one-year probation to Howard University while automatically vacating the Washington, D.C. school's 1971 NCAA soccer championship. The sanctions barred the basketball teams of Western Kentucky, New Mexico State and Centenary from all post-season tournament play and NCAA- governed TV appearances for their probation duration. Howard is banned one year from competing in the National Collegiate Soccer Championship. Centenary was charged with allowing some players financial aid, even though the players are not expected to attain the 1.6 academic grade average NCAA rules require. Highly recruited basketball star Bob Parish falls into this category.

C, that told of the "boomerang" effect the antidrug TV spots by National Football League players were having on the young. Donald L. Kanter, a psychologist and marketing professor at the University of Southern California, cited a study he had made. Professor Kanter found that 90 per cent of the high school students he interviewed believed the football players were "hypocritical," "insincere." This is in stark contrast to the way Clemente met his death. He was embarking on what has been called "a mission of mercy," seeing to it firsthand that a planeload of relief supplies for the earthquake victims of Managua, Nicaragua, would get to the intended destination (rumors that previous supplies he had helped gather had landed in the hands of profiteers had provoked him). Clemente did not pay lip- service to a popular cause; if he was concerned strictly with ballooning any kind of humanitarian image, he could have simply lent his name to the relief efforts and then gone off to a banquet or the golf course or his vault. Clemente had been building a reputation for helping people, from the destitute to teammates. (Willie Stargell and Danny Murtaugh, for example, give testimony to Clemente's chiropractic handiwork, saying that they walked easier after Clemente had knuckled up their sacroiliacs.) His dream project was to build a "sports city" in his home country, Puerto Rico. The sports city would be a place where poor kids, from the United States as well as Puerto Rico, could come to live and play and learn. "Through me," he once said, "lots of people can be helped. People look up to you when you are in sports. They try to imitate you." Bill Russell once said that kids could look up to him as an athlete but their fathers should give them the example to set as people. Clemente, however, said that there were many youngsters in Puerto Rico without fathers. He felt that in some small way his work and presence could in part fill a void. Clemente was not an easy laugher. And perhaps he took himself so seriously because many others did not. He had a reputation for suffering invisible ills. Once, for example, he was spiked in the arm and foot. Yet he came to bat and hit a home run. One-handed, one-legged. He walked around the bases. "I have so much God-given talent that I can play when I ache so bad," he later recalled. "But my manager did not understand. He thought I was hot- dogging it." He was concerned about the public's conception of him. "I am no fancy fellow," he affirmed. "But once you get an image, no matter what, you die with that image." The image that the world will carry of Roberto Clemente is not one of a man with a creaky back, nor of one with a .22 gauge arm, but of a man who cared about people and was committed to doing something about it. After Clemente's plane crashed off the coast of Puerto Rico, President Anastacio Somoza of Nicaragua sent a cable of condolence to Clemente's wife and three young sons: "He died a hero, leaving his family in order to aid humanity." Somoza, appropriately, did not say sports hero. That would have been too utterly limiting. (NEWSPAPER ENTERPRISE ASSN.) Miami's Passing a Mystery to Redskins LOS ANGELES (AP) Washington's Redskins fear the Miami passing attack because nobody sees it enough to know what it is. Bob Griese can throw and MORRELL LEAGUE WEDNESDAY VFW . .4 0 National Guard 4 0 R & K Sales 3 1 R & J Yamaha 3 1 Smokies 2 3 1 Credit Union 1 3 Cold Cuts 1 3 Smokies 1 1 3 VFW Canteen 0 4 Concrete Products 0 4 High Team 3 Games Credit Union 2539 VFW 2493 R & K Sales 2490 High Team 1 Game Credit Union ' 941 R & K Sales 855 Cold Cuts 853 High Individual 3 Games Bill Bruett 572 LeRoy Slingerland 556 Don Duke 551 High Individual 1 Game Phil Thelin 224 Chuck Beck 221 Dave Dean 214 Earl Morrall can throw but neither throws very much. What they'll do in the Super Bowl Sunday remains to be discovered. "They're very similar to our ball club offensively," says Coach George Allen of Washington. "We live by the run and they live by the run. We pass sparingly and they pass sparingly. "They have two good outside receivers who can block—Warfield and Twiley. The only difference might be that with Griese in the lineup now, they have the threat of the scramble pass. But any time he scrambles, he scrambles at his own risk." When Griese suffered a broken ankle early in the season, the 38-year-old Morrall was pressed into service. He led the American Football Conference in passing with 83 completions in 150 attempts for 1,360 yards and 11 touchdowns. He was also voted the division's top quarterback by The Associated Press. So when Coach Don Shu la goes for Griese in this Super Bowl game, you can see the estimation in which the taciturn Jim F«rre«, Editor blond from Purdue is held. "Defensively, we don't have to cover for anyone," says Washington linebacker Jack Pardee, the man -who calls the defensive signals, ''if we're'go- ing to blitz or cover mari-to- man or whatever we need to do, we don't need to worry about covering for any of our own players. We have balance enough to do that." Allen says the Redskins are using more of the zone than have any of his teams in the past, as an assistant with Chicago or head coach with the Los Angeles Rams. "We do it to mix coverages and to take away the home run chance," says Allen who also does it primarily to stop rushing plays such as Miami can launch with Larry Csonka, Mercury Morris or Jim Kiick. But if Miami should have an obvious passing situation, such as third down and 12 yards to go, the Redskins will have their nickel defense in operation- five defensive backs.

Lyle, 32, is the fifth member of Bruce's staff hired since the former Tampa coach accepted the ISU head job Jan. 3. Lyle will coach the Cyclones' defensive secondary. His defensive backs intercepted more than 30 passes in the past two years and the Indians' defense ranked ninth nationally in total defense in 1972, Bruce said.
