His well-wishers Wins Hambletoniaii Super Bowl is paying off By CHARLES CHAMBERLAIN DU QUOIN, 111. (AP) — Stanley Dancer has run $20,000 into $1,384,000 in two years without going near the stock market. He did it wiih Super Bowl. Super Bowl became tho fastest 3-year-old trotter in history Wednesday by winning the Hambletonian in straight heats of 1:57 2-5 and 1:56 2-5 and was sold to Hanover Shoe Farms in Pennsylvania for $1 million. With the first prize of $59,545 in the Hambletonian, Super Bowl's career earnings were boosted to $384,022. Dancer bought him as a yearling for $20,000. John Simpson, president of Hanover Shoe Farms, disclosed the $1 million sale between heats of the 3-year- old trotting classic. "We needed another troltins stallion," he said. "Star's Pride is 26 now." Star's Pride has sired eight Hambletonian winners, in- cluding Super Bowl II was learned that Simpson sold shares in Super Bowl to Hcmpt Farm, Camp Hill, PKA.: Buttonwood Farm, Bloomingburg, N.Y.; Armstrong Brothers, Brampton, Out.; Pine Hollow Farm, Pine Brush, N.Y., and to Del Miller. Delmonica Hanover, a filly driven by Miller, was second both times by about three lengths. Super Bowl's com- bined time of 3:53 4-5 was the fastest ever trotted in any age bracket. His second heat of 1:56 2-5 broke the Ham- bletonian record of 1:56 2-5 by Ayres, piloted by Simpson, in 1964. Smith on ropes, wins in Open ByCAUSEWELLVAUGHAN FOREST HILLS, N.Y. (AP) — The spectators got more than their money's worth when play began in the U.S. Open Tennis Championships. No. 1 seed Stan Smith of Sea Pines, S.C. was put on the ropes by 15-year-old Billy Martin of Palo Verdes, Calif. Smith, the 1971 and 1969 winner here, rebounded, however, for a 5-7, 6-1, 7-5, 6-3 triumph. But from the time young Martin, a national juniors champion, reeled off 11 straight points in the first set until Smith got the necessary .break in the fourth set, the match had the fans looking for an upset. The gals start play today and they could give the crowd the same edge-of-your-seat activity. The key women's match will pit top-seeded Billie Jean King of Palm-Aire, Fla., the defending champion, against Patti Hogan of La Jolla, Calif., ranked ninth nationally. Although Mrs. King, also the title winner in 1967, is 'favored Miss Hogan says she'll have to work lor every point. Other matches, will find third-seeded Chris Evert of Fort Lauderdale, Fla., the fans' teen-age darling, facing I M Billy Martin of Los Angeles, bottom, 15-years-ohl, returns volley to Stan Smith of Pasadena, C'alil., dui- ill{i 01HMlil|{; ,.

Kickers get range in NFL By BLOYS BRITT AP Sports Writer The placekickers are getting better range on the goal posts in pro football—one dividend from a winter rules change that moved in inbound markers three feet further toward midfield. The change may not actually have made any difference in distance' for National Football League booters, but the angle most certainly is going to be better from close in to the goal posts. But whether the change has helped or not, the three-point specialists are off to a good start in pre-season games. The Jan Stenerud of Kansas City as an example. The soccer-type kicker found the range against Los Angeles last week for rifle shots of 37, 40, 57 and 27 yards. The 57-yarder was a new distance for him, his previous best going 55 yards two years ago. The placekickers will be out in force this weekend for another 13-game, five-day exhibition schedule that opens tonight with the Miami Dolphins (2-2) playing at Washington (3-1). Baltimore plsys Detroit in a nationally televised contest at Tampa, Fla., Friday night. Seven games are scheduled Saturday, two of them afternoon affairs on college campuses. The New York Giants play the Philadelphia Eagles at" Princeton N J. while the New York Jets meet the Atlanta Falcorifc on the Georgia Tech campus. Night games involve the unbeaten Dallas Cowboys at Kansas City, New Orleans and Pittsburgh at Memphis. Los Angeles at San Diego and St. Louis at Green Bay. In Sunday games. Buffalo visit3 Chicago. Cincinnati and Cleveland have a neighborhood fuss scheduled at Columbus, and unbeaten Oakland and San Francisco stage their annual Bay Area show at San Francisco. Houston plays at Minnesota Monday night to close out the next to last exhibition weekend of the pre-seaM.ui schedule. LABOR By VALLIANT G. CORLEY DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — If Dinah Shore's morning television program had a jump in its Nielsen rating a few weeks ago, she may havo my five-year-old daughter to thank. For one week—Thursday through Wednesday—we were one of the 1,200 families coast-to-coast keeping track of the television programs we were watching so the Nielsen people could tell television executives how many million people were watching their shows. It all started with a telephone call a week or tv/o before our important week. The caller identified himself as a Nielsen representative and then asked If I owned a television set. I looked up at the 12-inch portable my wife and I had splurged $100 on shortly after we were married eight years ago and said "Certainly." He asked if we were willing to be a Nielsen family for a week and_ faithfully keep track of * all television programs anyone In the family watched and report them without fail. I vowed we would, on our sacred honor. Our Nielsen diary came in the mail a week later. The family gathered around as I opened it and discovered two quarters attached to a card with a note this was a "token" payment for our work. With the diary were instructions saying, "your diary is important." Another section that told how we were "computer • selected from a list of households" in our community made us feel only a little less important. The Nielsen people wanted a written record of television viewing in our home by all members of the family. For most families, that might not be a problem. But many of us Associated Press newsmen do not work the most regular hours. And of that week I was assigned on an evening shift, not arriving home until shortly after 10:30 p.m. VALUES VANILLA * * * * * * * * TV LOG KTVI (ABC) 2, KMOX (CBS) 4, KSI) (NBC) 5, KETC 9, KPLR 11, KDNL Sf THURSDAY EVENING C:M-2 Petticoat Junction 4 5 News • 9 Exploring Crafts 11 Andy Griffith 30 Father Knows Best 6:50-2 To Tell the Truth 4 Primus 5 Rollin on the River 9 Folk Guitar 11 Dragnet 30 I Dream of Jeannie 7:00-2 SPECIAL: Summer Olympics 4 My World and Welcome To It 5 Adventure Theatre 9 Shepherd's America 11 Movie 30 Girl from U.N.C.L.E. 7:30—4—SPECIAL: Dr. Seuss 9 Sonia Malkine 8:00-2 SPECIAL: The Great Plimpton "4 Movie (C) 5 Ironsides 9 Hollywood Theatre 30 Movie (BW) 9:00—5 Bobby Darin 9 Making Things Grow 11 Perry Mason 9:30—9 Stock Market 9:45-9 Umbrella 9:55—11 News 10:00-2 4 5 News 9 Yoga and You 11 Country Place 30 Rifleman 10:30—2 4 Movie 5 Johnny Carson 9 Folk Guitar 11 The Virginian 30 Movie (BW) 11:00—9 Two-Way TV 11:05—9 Choral Group 12:00-5 News 11 Saint 12:15-5 Outdoors 12:20-2 Movie (BW) 12:30-4 Movie 12:45—5 Weather 1:00—11 News/Religion 1:55—2 News/Religion 2:10—4 Movie 3:50—4 News 4:00-^ Movie 5:35—4 Religion 6:45—2 Lone Ranger 7:00-4 CBS News 5 Today 7:15-2 Fury 7:30—30 Little Rascals 7:45—2 Cartoons 8:00—4 Capt.

The survey was conducted by Robert M. Bruker, director of admissions and records and an Education Division ins t r u c t o r . Bruker studied environmental programs in 60 high schools in central and southern Illinois and St. L o u i s - S t. Louis County, Missouri "Only 12 ]>er cent of the 84,923 students enrolled in the high schools of the sample were participating in environment al programs," Bruker said. "More students must be involved if the schools are to realize the goal of creating an environmental ethic." Bruker uaid the lowest degree of participation was in inner-city schools, with about 6 per cent of the students involved. Student participation in other categories — rural, suburban and urban schools — averaged about 14 per cent. "Anion-; inner-city school personnel. there was a general climate of unconcern lor environmental studies programs," Bruker said. "This wasn't a denial of the existence of ecological problems, nor of their importance; rather it was a feeling that as contemporary social issues, they were being over-emphasized." Bruker found that in the sample schools environmental education experiences often were vicarious ones gained through lectures, films and textbooks Only 23 high schools inc'uded out-of-school projects in their programs, "The schools were making poor use of off-campus study sites available to them," he said. "Each of the sample schools is within 30 minutes to one hour of natural sites which could be used in en- v i r o n mental education programs These include ponds and reservoirs, woodlands, ;tate parks, lakes, forests, rivers and streams. Ponds and reservoirs were used by 18 of the schools, with no other natural site used even to that extent." Bruker said urban sites were used even less by high schools. He said sewage plants were visited by students from 19 schools, industrial sites were used in eight programs, with dumps, water treatment plants and landfills used to lesser degrees "Illinois and Missouri through their education departments should publicize the location and encourage the use of off-campus sites for the study of environmental problems,'- he said. "Environmental curricula must be expanded to include the social problems associated with survival. This learning must occur in places outside the classroom, where students can use firsthand all their senses and talents for observing, questioning and evaluating." In his investigation, Bruker found that despite the large amount of discussion in recent years of ecology issues as social problems, study of the issues was being conducted from a scientific point of view in the majority of high schools. About 70 per cent of the high schools conducted their study of the environment in science and agriculture courses; in only 19 per cent of the schools was such study conducted in social studies classes. "The high school social studies area would be a particularly good field in which to emphasize the relationship of man to his environment," Bruyker said. "Social and economic welfare, health, transportation and many forms of business are affected by our use of water, soil and air. Natural resources are essential to all wealth, industry and trade." 4 Secret Storm 5 Another World 2:30—2 One Life to Live 4 Edge of Night 5 Return to Peyton Place 11 Crafts with Katy 2:00-2 Movie (BW) 4 My Three Sons 5 Merv Griffin 11 Somerset 30 Mr. Patches 3:15—9 Guten Tag 3:30—4 Mike Douglas 9 Commonwealth 11 Flintstones 30 Speedracer 4:00—9 Mister Rogers 11 Flipper 30 Lost In Space , 4:30—5 Truth or Consequence 9 Electric Company 11 Gflligan's Island 5:00-2 4 5 News k 9 Sesame Street II Leave it to Beaver 30 Star Trek 5:30—2 Hogan's Heroes 4 5 News II1 Love Lucy 5:55-11 News FRIDAY EVENING 1:01-2 Petticoat Junction 4 5 News 9 Hodge Podge Lodge 11 Andy Griffith 30 Father Knows Best 8:30-2 To Tell the Truth 4 Circus 5 Hee Haw 9 Bridge 11 Dragnet ' 30 I Dream of Jeannie 6:55-11 News 7:00-2 SPECIAL: Summer Olympics 4 O'Hara, U.S. Treasury 9 Green Thumb 11 Movie 30 Man from U.N.C.L.E. 7:30—5 SPECIAL: Pro Foot ball—Baltimore Colts vs. Detroit Lions 9 Get Together 8:00—4 Movie 30 Movie (BW) 8:30—9 Off the Record 9:00—9 On Being Black 11 Perry Mason 9:55-11 News 10:00-2 4 5 News 9 Designing Women 11 Buck Owens 30 Rifleman 10:30-2 4 Movie (C) -5 Johnny Carson 9 Commonwealth 11 The Virginian 30 Movie 11:00-9 Viewer's Viewpoint 11:05—9 Chorall Group 12:00—5 News 11 Flash Gordon 30 Movie 12:15—5 Truth or Consequences 12:30—2 Movie (BW) 4 Movie (BW) 12:45-5 Weather 1:00—11 News/Religion 1:45-30 Movie 2:05—2 News/Religion 2:15-4 Movie (BW) 4:00—4 News 4:10—4 Movie (BW) 5:35—4 Religion Limit 3, Please HERSHEY SYRUP 39« 16 ei. eons Oracle A—Homogenized Grade A Gall 2%Homo..79» Fantn ROOT BEER Stock Up for the Holiday! 89' Quarts Plus Deposit FOLGERS • OLD JUDGE MANHATTAN COFFEE . iff 89c COCA-COLA 79° 8 "H°" 89* Plus Deposit Quarts Plus Deposit RC COLA 6 *T 79« Betsy Ross BREAD 5 Pound $ Loaves The Telegraph cannot al- ' ways publish last • minute changes made by the television stations.
