New Scoreboard to aid Iowa fans ,-«£ ... » ^ jSrt&r>.diiAi&,. j At long last, it seems people will know what the score is at Kinnick Stadium in Towa City this fall. If you're among the thousands who have watched Iowa football games there in' recent years, you know what an eyesore it was trying to read the scoreboards at the north and south ends of the field. Even when Iowa wasn't scoring any points, it was always nice to at least have an idea how much time remained in the game. But the scoreboards weren't working much of the time. Even when they were, the lighting was so poor that it took 20-20 vision or a good imagination to make out the numbers in the afternoon sun. So now Bump Elliott, the Hawkeyes' athletic director, has done something about it. The old scoreboards, which REGISTER REPORT By Ron Maly •UMP •LUOTT •OB COMMINGS were installed before Elliott arrived on the scene, have been torn down and new ones have been ordered. "We've. ordered them from Naden Industries, Inc., in Webster City for a cost of about $23,000," Elliott said Monday. "They're similar to the scoreboards Naden put in at Perm State, and they'll be up in time for our home opener with Illinois Sept. 13." BOB NADEN, vice-president of Naden Industries, said the Iowa scoreboards will be a bit larger than those his company has installed at Iowa State's new stadium. Iowa State also got a better deal. The scoreboards were some points to make it all seem worthwhile. <j "Gardner (Naden's brother, who is president of Naden Industries) and. I hope both schools do well," said Bob. IOWA PRACTICE - Coach Bob Commings is being more particular this year about who is admitted to the Hawkeye practices. Visitors are stopped at the gate and asked if they have a card — issued by Commings or someone else in authority — that will admit them. "We just want a little more security," Commings explained. "I want to have an idea, who is watching our practices." Seemingly, this will help eliminate the presence of an unwelcome visitor who might just want to do a little scouting for future opponents. Or doesn't that happen in college football anymore? 31 FOR 9 HOLES - At one time, Tom Zug of Des Moines was a part-time sports writer.

Even though Iowa didn't get its boards free, Naden said his company gave the school a good deal on them. "Iowa saved about $10,000 over what the normal fee would be for the boards it is getting," he explained. On the boards will be the score, time remaining, timeouts left for each team, the down, yard line and yards to go for a first down. Now, it is hoped, both Iowa and Iowa State will score Ford declines to pick winner of Big 10 tilt MILWAUKEE, WIS. (AP) President Ford, a .star football center at Michigan more than 40 years ago, diplomatically declined Monday to predict a winner of the Wisconsin-Michigan football game at Madison Sept. 13. Both schools are considered contenders for _the Big Ten championship, and Ford was asked for a-pr,ediction during an interview with local tele-* vision newscasters. "The only game 1 played against Wisconsin was in 1934 and they defeated us at Ann Arbor," he said. "That rivalry's great. I'm a little prejudiced for those Wolverine^. "But I think it will be a great game," the President added. "I understand the Badgers are going to be tougher this year so we better be a little cautious and go to work between now and then." MT EFFORT 3Y HOOKER LIFTS BOGS Stargell bats in 2 to doom Braves PITTSBURGH, PA. (AP) Jim Hooker fired a three-hitter and Willie Stargell delivered a pair of run-scoring singles, leading Pittsburgh to a 4-0 vic- t o r y over Atlanta Monday night. The Pirates maintained their three-game margin over Phila delphia and now lead St. Louis by 3Vz games in me Eastern Division of the National League. The only hits off Rooker (109) were Rob Belloir's one-out single in the first inning, a leadoff single by Dusty Baker in the second and Vic Correll's leadoff double in the eighth. "This is the kind of sharpness I had last year," said Rooker. "I don't even know how many bits I gave up. I just had my mind into the game." "But if I had been pitching this way all season we'd probably have a three or four-game bigger lead then we do." Correll was the only Atlanta runner to get past first base. He reached third with two out but was stranded when pinch- hitter Clarence Gaston grounded out. Rooker walked one and struck out three in pitching his first shutout of the season. Stargell tagged Mike Thompson (0-5) for run-scoring singles in the first and third innings. ATLANTA PITTSBURGH r» -<wv.ii < w.iwiu«u!Mniv »» i,.«..H«>»m^«.l.A.fe.».l««, V? .. m y^f»/-^ni jm w^.

When Muhammad AH found him, he was a man in the depths, broke and broken. Now he has a job, the nature of which is difficult to determine, but he has an income and he has his pride. Overflow Crowd The gym was crowded to overflowing and Muhammad All had just gone through ordinary paces, no boxing. But without hitting another human, he entertained; without punching a man, he worked hard. There was the rope- skipping, the shadow-boxing, pounding the heavy bag, riffling the light bag. And although it was not very humid, the perspiration flowed freely. Now he grabbed a stool and carried it into the ring and he sat down heavily and began his monologue, the bast part of all for those who had journeyed hours to see him. "I'm the onlicsl heavyweight champion who lets you come in here and watch me work oul for nothing," he said "No other heavyweight champion ever did that."

What is it about him that makes them journey to this training camp from all over the country, as if on a pilgri- age, to watch him work for an hour? "It's like he's a shrine," says Gene Kilroy, an aide to Muhammad Ali. "Look at the license plates on the cars parked here. They're from all over the country.

Alan Eagleson, Orr's attorney, said following the meeting his client would give the Bruins until the start, of the season to make a counterproposal. Orr has one year remaining on his $225,000 annual contract with the National Hockey League club. Orr, one of the premier de- fnnseman in the NHL, has been negotiating with the Fighting Saints since last spring and reportedly is close to signing a multi-year contract with the WHA dub. "Best Package' Terms of the offer have been released, but. it will not re.- portedly cover Orr, 27, for the rest of his life. Belisle said his offer was "the best, package ever offered an athlete and maybe the best employment package offered any businessman." He suggested Orr would be looked after for life "as well as his children and his children's children." In Boston, Harry Sinden, vice-president and managing director of the Bruins; said the NHL club is pursuing negotiations with Orr. Met With Orr "We've had a meeting. We've made an offer," said Sinden. "I don't want to get, into any of the negotiations in a public way. We're trying to do it on a first-class basis and want to continue that way." Meanwhile, the newspaper Quebec de Soleil reported Monday the Fighting Saints were assured of participation in the deal by II of the other 14 WHA teams. The paper said Orr would be. paid a bonus of $1.5 million to sign and $600,000 a year.
