TUESDAY, &UY 5, t<>70 Comic dictionary IGNORANCE — A widespread Condition . without which there would be mighty Httte conversation. (CoovrlaM. 1«70, by Evirt Es«r/ . A LITTLE BIT About a Lot of Things: Tom Landry, coach "of the perennial near-miss Dallas Cowboys oHlie National Football League, has not only been r e_a d i n g ! anonymous 'letters since the 1969 season ended but requesting such messages. Encouraging "Dear Sir: You cur!" type letters hardly seems necessary, since every major coach annually gets a few without bothering to solicit them. Quite often, a secretary kindly files them in wastcbaskcis before they reach the boss. The unsigned mail which Landry is carefully studying comes from his own players. Tom asked each to give a candid critique on why such a talented team keeps getting edged for the N.F.L. title. TOM LANDRY veteran The Cowboys reportedly cooperated wholeheartedly and sent along opinions blaming everything from Landry's super- complex systems to his insistence that the squad be populated only by gentlemen. "What this team needs are a few bums who can play football," one allegedly wrote. The Society for Saintly Professional Football Players is never going (Q be ablejo track down which Cowboy sent that letter. Asa special precaution "that the letters would be anonymous, players had their wives (unmarried players presumably asked their mothers) fill out the questionnaires and write comments. The letters mere all mailed to Lee Roy Jordan, the team captain, who burned the original envelopes, then forwarded the contents to Landry. BUY THE TWINS? B ILLY MARTIN would be second-guessed by 150,000 bosses if one Minnesota Twins fan had his way. The Minneapolis Star recently printed a letter that started "Let's buy the Twins from Calvin Griffith and bring Billy backl" The fan figured 150,000 fans would jump at the chance to each put. up $100 to buy the club from Calvin (who fired Billy in spite of a division pennant last year). In case you'd like to see the man who stirs up .such loyalty, Martin speaks at the third annual Big Brother luncheon at Hotel Fort Des Moines Wednesday. The public is invited.

(AP) - A one-day baseball moratorium rather than a strike is likely if the major, league owners don't i sweeten their latest contract offer to the Major League Baseball Players Association, the Chicago Today newspaper reported Monday. Baseball writer John Hillyer ;aid he was told by one player representative — who preferred to remain anonymous — that the day—for a moratorium would come when there is a nationally televised game. "The television people," the .player said, "already have been told about it. We would give the owners three or four days' notice, hoping to get some concessions out of them in the meantime so we wouldn't have to strike. "The TV people, of course, would tell the owners they couldn't pay them for that game if it wasn't played." Hillyer said Marvin Miller, the association's executive director, had received the owners' proposal Friday and each club is expected to vote on it sometime this week. The conflict: Scheduling — The owners propose to continue playing 162 games a year. The players are pretty well united against this. Termination pay—Owners agree to pay a player 45 days' worth of salary if he is released during the season. But if he is released in spring training, he would receive nothing. League p 1 a y o f f pools—Owners propose to raise the players' share from 50 to 60 per cent. Many players believe this is not enough. Meal money—The owners propose raising it from $15 to $16 a day for this season, $17 in 1971 and $17 plus a cost-of- living increase in 1972. "Last season," the player rep told Hillyer, "the four second- place teams were awarded play-off-pool shares of about $600 each. And the owners still want to take expenses-out of it for special playoff items like erection of TV booths — things BASEBALL Please turn to Page The Scoreboard National League Standings .EASTERN DIVISION W.

Klinzman Quits as Lincoln Coach-'Not My Choosing' By Bud Appleby Lloyd Klinzman, football-coach at Lincoln High School for the past 10 years, resigned Monday night and indicated it was at the request of the school administration. "You'll have to ask the superintendent about that," Klinzman said when asked the reason for leaving the post. "It wasn't of my own choosing." ' Klin zman, who disclosed his resignation at a Lincoln all-sports ban- ouet, said he had been of- fered'a job as athletic manager at the school, but was undecided, about the offer. "It's not what I expected," KLIMZMAM | / TBY Det Moinis' ' FINEST STEAKS he said. "My goal when I first started here was to get into secondary administration, eventually. And this is not an administrative job." Klinzman said he had looked into coaching opportunities elsewhere. "But not earnestly," be added. He compiled a 40-38-4 record at Lincoln. Two of his teams rent»^champions"of ~tfie~ Met ropolitan Conference and three others were runners-up. Last year's team posted a 4-5 record and was third in the conference standings. KNOBSAIL PAST LAKERS FOR 3-2 LEAD Rally After Injury ToReed,107-iOO NEW YORK,.N.Y. (AP)-The Knicks, playing from late in the first, quarter .without. Willis Reed, caught and passed the Los Angeles Lakers for a 107-100 victory Monday night and a 3-2 lead in their battle for the National .Basketb a 11 Associat i o n WILLIS title. REED Trailing, 25-15, when Reed went out with 3 minutes 56 seconds^left in the opening period, the Knicks/!i- nally caught up at 87-all on'Bill Bradley's basket. After two more deadlocks Bradley again hit with 5:17 to play for a 93-91 edge and -the Knicks were ahead to stay. Dave Stallworth, who scored 10 points in the final quarter, added another basket 39 seconds later to make it 95-91. • Then Cazzie Russell took over with New York's next six points for-a 101-94-lead-and-the Lakers never climbed closer than five again. • The Knicks could wrap it up Wednesday night in Los Angeles in a nationally televised game in which Reed hopes to return. Walt Frazier led the Knicks with 21 points, followed by Russell with'20. Elgin Baylor, who hit 11 of Los Angeles' 20 points in the final quarter, finished with 21. Wijt Chamberlain, managing only two points in the final half against first Dave DeBusschere and then Stallworth, scored 22. Jerry West, who scored only four points in the final half against the ball-hawking Knicks, had 20. New York fell behind, 19-9, and when Reed, the league's most valuable player, left minutes later, the Knicks looked to be in grave trouble. The Knicks managed to keep within 53-40 at halftime, despite ~nitting~~only~37 per cent from the field. Then, with Frazier scoring 10 points and leading a ball-stealing defense that allowed the Lakers only 15 shots, the Knicks climbed within 82-75 entering the'final session?'" " Frazier, Dick Barnett, Stallworth and Bradley then led the Knicks to their first tie with 7:42 remaining and it was downhill from there.

(AP) Denver Probate Judge David Brofman Monday set a May 12 hearing on a report from a medical commission which will examine Joe Louis, former world heavyweight boxing champion who was admitted to Colorado Psychiatric Hospital last week. Irving Andrews, Louis' attorney, asked the court to appoint a board of psychiatrists to examine Louis, report on his condition and make recommendations to the court on future treatment. Louis, 56, was admitted Fri~day to the hospital at the University of Colorado Medical Center on a "hold for treatment" order issued by Judge Brofman. Andrews indicated, however, a decision may be made before May 12 to transfer Louis to a private hospital which would terminate further probate court proceedings. The former champion held the heavyweight title for 12 years, from 1937 to 1949. 2« BLAST IN 8TH HIKES STREAK TO 6 5th Homer Erases 2-2 Tulsa Tie By Bill Bryson,' Tulsa's Harry Parker had a rare feat going when he retired Gene Tenace three-times-irra row Monday night. But no/pitcher yet has made it foui-straight outs against the lowa'Oaks' new power plant. Tenacc destroyed Parker's streak, and the Oilers ajong.with. it, when he boomed a two-run homer high over the left-field fence with one out in the eighth inning. The 185-pound catcher's fifth home run wrought the Oaks' sixth straight victory and their eleventh in 13 starts, 4-3. It was an electrifying jolt that_kepLTenace.aLthe_top.-of- the American Association in both power and frequency. Gene leads in homers, in runs-batted-in with 16, and his .450 average is also the best in the tripIe-A league. Cracks Tie TenaceVshot-dislocated a 2-2- tie. The Oaks needed the extra run it brought in order to offset Tulsa's unearned run in the ninth. Ed Sprague pitched out of that closing peril, just as he'd hurled himself out of several earlier jams. There were Oilers at first and third with nobody out, the result of Gonzalo Marquez's error and pinch-hitter Billy Wolff's gentle single to short right. Steve Derneter's fly to right was too short to score Jim Kennedy from third.
