Postville Coach Don Drahn has 11 lettermen returning, including four starters on both the offensive and defensive units. the Pirates' strength appears to be'in the offensive line where tackles Jerry Hofer and Mike Heins and guard Milt Olson return and at linebacker where Dennis Kleve and Lane Radloff have experience. The backfield, however, must be rebuilt on both platoons and Drahn faces a tough early-season schedule, meeting non-conference Waukon, West Central and Sumner on the road the first three weeks. AT WEST CENTRAL, Coach Dennis Lenth returns five starters, headed by fullback Kevin Wedemeier, who led the conference in rushing with 1,049 yards last fall. The Blue Devils lost both guards through graduation, but the rest of the offensive line looks solid with tight end Brian Suckow and tackles Jon Turner (225) and Mike Kane (190) returning. The ranks have been fortified with the return of halfback Steve Sliter and end Kevin Lockard. Both missed last year with injuries after being starters in 1973. Sumner is one of four league teams with new coaches as, Doug Schuler (formerly at Laurens) takes over for Dennis Frederick, now at Albia. The Aces lost only two regulars and three other seniors from last year's 4-5 club with the return of quarterback Mike Greenfield, Mark Moser, Dale Wilharm and Bob O'Brien. David Derhammer moves up from the assistant ranks to the head job at Central Elkader and has six regulars and three other lettermen available. QUARTERBACK Gene. Glawe led the league in passing last fall, throwing for 1,015 yards and 10 touchdowns. However, it will be difficult to replace end Brad Thurn. Les Coonfare, a 210-pounder, is back at fullback while Randy Glawe and Randy Moser return at tackles. North Fayette, a Class 3A school, must replace the bulk of its offensive line. The strength lies in the defensive secondary where Stephens, Marty Frey, Kurt Robinson and Bob Marshall all have experience. Dan Kennedy moves from Maysville, Mo., to Valley of Elgin and has 10 lettermen available. The offense is expected to center around fullback Randy Olson. The Tigers, however, appear short on depth. Depth also seems to be a problem at Fayette, but Coach Steve Cooper should have an excellent line with plenty of size. Among the ret u r n e e s are tackles Ron Neuhring (195) and Don Sieck (210), guard Dwight Vandersee (205) and center Brooks Miner (215). ' Defense has been MFL of Monona's strong point in recent years and that should be the case again this year. The Bulldogs are now under the reins of Lou Wiegand, who moves up from the junior high ranks. He has 13 letter- junior, Mike Bodensteiner, a 165-pound guard, and Mike Hurd, a 180-pound halfback, both earned second team league honors and are among nine other returning starters. Fredericksburg the league's smallest school and in its last year in the confer- _ence, looms as Turkey Valley's top challenger. Steve Stalker must find a replacement for quarterback Gary Ross, but the rest of the backfield looks strong, led by Ron Lienen. Russ Ball, an all-league end, also returns. Wapsie Valley of Fairbank won the title last fall and reached the 2A playoffs, losing to eventual champion Mount Vernon in the first round. Coach Jerry Southmayd lost 10 regulars on defense and eight on offense and must rebuild the line. The backfield, possesses strength in the return of quarterback Pat Miller, a good passer, and halfback Rande Wegner, but only center Al Weber (215) returns up front. DENVER WITH Larry Niemann in his fifteenth year as coach, has the most letter- winners (19) and also could contend. Ron Wooldrik was an all-league linebacker and heads the returnees. Dunkerton doesn't have a player who weighs more than 190 pounds, but Coach John Freberg has nine lettermen, eight of them returning regulars. Only three regulars and two other lettermen are on hand at South Winneshiek of C a 1 m a r. Jesup, with the league's, only new coach in Mike Exline (a former assistant) returns five starters, but only one — tight end Russ Buhrow — has offensive experience.

(AP) Top-seeded Guillermo Vilas, the 1974 Grand Prix winner from Argentina, and defending champion Bjorn Borg, Sweden's 19-year-old star, advanced Monday to the final of the $100,000 U.S. Pro tennis championships. Vilas defeated Wimbledon champion Arthur Ashe, 4-6, 6-3, 6-0, 64, in the rain-delayed semifinals, while Borg downed eighth-seeded John Alexander of Australia, 6-3, 6-7, 6-3, 6-0. Vilas and Borg, who is seeded second in defense of his title, will meet for the forty- eighth annual championship and $16,000 first prize tonight. Borg capitalized on a flock of service breaks in dashing Alexander's upset hopes. The blond Swede broke the Aussie four times in the first set, and four times more in the third. Borg was broken once in the opening set and twice in the third. Anthony wins Waukegan Open WAUKEGAN, ILL. (AP) Earl Anthony took another stride Monday toward becoming pro bowling's first $100,000 winner this year, beating Matt Surina of Longview, Wash., in the finals of the $50,000 Waukegan Open bowling tournament. Tied with Surina, 257-257, at the end of 10 frames, Anthony posted four strikes in a two- frame tiebreaker to shut out his opponent, who had struck in the first frame. The title was Anthony's nineteenth in a career that began in 1970.

Wellington, Iowa's No. 2 rusher and top scorer a year ago, was injured Saturday in the Hawkeyes' first scrimmage of the season. He started fall drills as the top right halfback. Six-foot 4-inch 250-pound of fensive tackle Rod Walters strained a calf muscle in the Monday morning workout and, according to trainer Ed Crow' ley, will not suit up for two or three days. . Two Buckeyes fail physicals 1,000 attend Donohue's funeral SUMMIT, N.J. (AP) - Mark Donohue, described by fellow driver Brian Redman "as one of the nicest people, not just in racing but in the whole world," was bu/ied Monday. The funeral in St. Theresa's Roman Catholic Church came seven days after Donohue, 38, died in an Austrian hospital of brain injuries suffered two days earlier during a crash in practice for the Austrian Grand Prix. An overflow crowd, estimated at 1,000 persons, attended the Requiem Mass for Donohue. Among the mourners were fellow race drivers Redman, Mario Andretti, Bobby Allison George Follmer, Gary Bettenhausen, along with Tony Hulman, owner of the Indianapolis Speedway where Donohue won the 500-miler in 1972. On one side of the mahogany casket were Donohue's father, Mark, sr., a New York patent attorney; his mother; his second wife, Eden, and his two sisters. On the other side were his two sons by a first marriage, Michael, 11, and David, 9, and their mother. The Requiem was celebrated by The Right Rev. Harold A. Murray, who said that at one time he had hoped to encourage Donohue to enter the priesthood but "the lure of the engine was greater. We sort of grew up together, however. "Mark was a very human person ... he did an awful lot of good on this earth beside being one of the greatest drivers in auto racing history." Donohue's fatal injuries came as a result of what was described as freak blow on his helmeted head during the crash which otherwise left him unscathed. He underwent brain surgery at a hospital in Graz but never regained consciousness. Donohue, an engineering graduate from Brown University, was buried in St. Theresa's Cemetery, several blocks SPORTS roundup NATIONAL I AT V Boulder, Colo., Baseball ».

Coach Earle Bruce said Monday- he has been especially pleased with sophomore quarterback Buddy Hardeman, who missed most of last season with a knee injury. "Buddy has shown a lot of confidence so far and his passing has been excellent," Bruce said. Despite Bruce's praise for Hardeman, the top spot is still up for grabs and will be until after the first scrimmage Saturday. "We should have some idea where we're at by then with the quarterbacks," Bruce said. Bruce said Hardeman, senior Wayne Stanley and senior Tom Mason all will be used this season. "It doesn't seem to make much difference which one plays. They all seem to be working in well," Bruce added. The Cyclones will continue with twice daily workouts until the opening of classes Sept. 4.

It was true and it made you wonder, once again, what there would be without him. Joe Frazier is the party of the other part in Manila Oct. 1 but without Muhammad AH it would not be the big thing it is. "Did you ever think you'd see the day when Madison Square Garden couldn't afford to sign the heavyweight champion of the world?" he asked. "Now they have to bid against whole countries." In all his modesty, he will tell you that it is a tribute to him, his beautiful body, his extraordinary talent. Hard Work "But," he points out, "it takes hard work. People think I just get up, put on my white shoes and get in the ring. "I'm 33 years old and it was 115 degrees in Malaysia and I weighed 227 pounds and I'm dancing for 15 rounds. It was a miracle, It was so hot they were wringing out their shirts at the fight. They were sweating and fainting. "Muhammad, you're the. greatest," shouted a voice from the crowd, and without missing a beat, his eyes darted in the direction of the voice, his eyebrows .Arched and he cracked, "Oh, tell me something new." Gene Kilroy moved through the crowd to All's side and whispered to him that there was a telephone call. 'It's Robin Carter* "It's Rubin Carter calling from prison," Kilroy explained to a visitor. "I can't tell the guy to call back when he's calling from prison." "Th-th-th-th-that's all, folks," Ali said, and went to the room off the gym where the telephone was. He swooped into the room, sat down heavily on a leather couch and picked up the phone. "My brother, my brother," he said. "No I ain't doin' nothin'. I can talk.... "Well, you're still in there a n d we gotta get you out....anything you want me to do after the Frazier fight, you tell me and I'll do it....make it for around the end of October...anythingTybu want, just call....right, brother...." Now Subdued He hung up the receiver with a sigh. His mood had changed from the one he had shown his fans outside in the gym just moments before. Now he was subdued, a concerned individual, his heart going out to a brother, a fellow fighter in trouble. "I couldn't do it," he said softly. "I couldn't be like him." "It takes a strong will," somebody said. "I'd kill myself if I was in prison," he said. He was reminded that he almost was in Rubin Carter's place — he almost went to jail. "It's according to what you're in there for," he said. "It's different if you have a principle to fight for. Like Rubin. He's got a principle to fight for. He's innocent."
