Minnesota's placing in the West and the switch of the Dallas Cowboys to the Eastern Conference were part of the release of the official NFL schedule. Now a 14- team league with the addition of the Vikings, the NFL will play 98 games next season — an increase of 20 over last season. Under the new schedule, each team will play home-and-home series with the six other clubs in its conference and also will play two inter-conference games —one home and one away. Although the league had authorized Rozelle to draw up a schedule with both Minnesota and Dallas playing "swing schedules" as Dallas did last year the commissioner said this was unnecessary "because of increased availability of playing sites, including a new stadium in Washington." Minnesota and Dal las, however, will play a home- and-home inter-conference series with each other. The season starts for all clubs Sept. 17 and ends Dec. 17, with all but four games on Sundays. The Bears will play at Los Angeles on Saturday night, Sept. 23, and Green Bay will play its tradi tional Thanksgiving Day game with Detroit on Nov. 23. In addi tion, two late-season games —still not selected — will be switched from Sunday to Saturday to permit national telecasts.

NewcombeWon't Take LA Offer LOS ANGELES (AP) - Don Newcombe, an unemployed pitch er, would rather stay out of work than spend a season throwing baseballs for the Los Angeles An gels for a paltry $13,000. That, he says, is what they of fered him—plus a $3,000 bonus. "I made $27,000 last season,' Newcombe said, "and I'm not going back to work for nothing. I'm not going to leave my busines back in New Jersey all summer for the kind of money the Angels offered." Newcombe is working out with the Dodgers as a free agent. He said he may ask the Pittsburgh Pirates for a job when they ar rive here later this week. Newcombe, the N at i o n a 1 League's most valuable player in 1936 when he won 27 games for Brooklyn, spent the spring in Florida with the Dodgers but couldn't make their roster. The Dodgers might have used him as a reliever, but pitching coach Joe Becker wasn't certain Newcombe's 34-year-old arm had the kind of resiliency needed for relief pitching. Oiler Nine Zips Past Kahoks, 6-2 WOOD RIVER — The Wood liver Oilers took advantage of a eaky Collinsville Kahok defense and scored a 6-2 Southwestern Conference baseball win Tuesday afternoon. The Kahoks were guilty of seven miscues afield, more than enough to hand the Oilers the ball game. Terry Bub hurled for Col Snsville and allowed only five Oilers hits, but coupled with the rrors, the Kahoks slipped be hind in the fifth inning. Jim Blackledge went the dis tance for Wood River allowing only three Kahok hits, but the Oilers were also nervous afield and committed four errors. Wood River drew blood in the first inning when three straight singles put the Kahoks in trouble and then an error on a ground ball allowed two Oiler runners to cross the plate. Collinsville came back in the third inning and knotted the score with two runs. Mistakes caught up with the Kahoks in the fifth, when the Oilers pushed across one run and the roof fell in in'the bottom of the sixth as Wood River added three insurance runs. AVood River now has a 4-1 mark of the season and is 2-1 in conference play. The Oilers will host Alton for another loop game Thursday afternoon.
