NFL PLAYERS, MJUU6EMENT TALKS SNAG Rozelle Rule key disputed issue CHICAGO, ILL. (AP) - Negotiations broke off Tuesday between the National Football League Management Council and the NFL Players Association after snagging again over the Rozelle Rule and other issues, Federal Mediator James F. Scearce said. He said the talks, which have dragged out for more than a year, have reverted to where they were before they continued Monday, despite—an earlier glimmer of progress. The two sides met late Monday to discuss option compensation and other differences. 'Basic Difficulties' "We just can't seem to get around the basic difficulties..." said Scearce, deputy director of the Federal Mediation and Conciliation Service. "The special session we had last night gave a lot of opportunity for people in the Players Association to talk things out with the Management Council," he said. "Today (Tuesday) we resumed, and I'm afraid we ran into some of the same old problems we had." He said the controversy over the Roselle Rule, requiring compensation to a team whose man has played out his option and signs with another team, was not the only disputed issue, "but it was the key one." Subject to Call The talks have been broken off subject to call, Scearce said. "I've asked the parties to examine their positions. We won't set another meeting until there's some evidence that we've got some place to go. I've asked them to see if they can come up with some other approaches," Scearce said, declining to be more specific. "We're gonna keep trying and we're looking. I don't want to cast a pall (on the situation). We have run into some problems. Last night's discussion gave us some hope for some movement, but it just didn't work out this way in today's discussions. " ISU's Settle proves himself WALK ON AS FRESHMAN, STARTER AS SOPH AMES, IA. - He came to town with his game films and his high school coach. All Mark Settle wanted was a chance. A chance at the big time. Given that, the big farm kid went out and won himself a football scholarship. But he didn't settle for that. Now he's even got a starting job. Does it all sound too fiction-like? A fantasyland football story? Possibly, but it's true. Settle, unwanted as a high school senior by a major football school, is now ticketed for a starting linebacker spot as an Iowa State sophomore. "I could have gone to places like Northern Iowa and William Penn," the 225- REGISTER REPORT By Ron Maly pounder said, "and gotten some scholarship help. "But I've always had my mind set on playing at Iowa State. So, when I was a senior at Nevada High School, I came to Ames with my high school coach and brought some films along. "The coaches told me I could try out for the team, but would get no scholarship as a freshman. "But I was treated the same as everyone else last year. 1 even made the trip to Colorado with the varsity." SETTLE MADE such an impression in the fall that he was awarded a football scholarship in the spring, when he grabbed a first-team spot "because of my hitting." As a young player, Settle's football idol was Dick Butkus, and his goal is to someday play professionally. With his determination, don't bet he won't make it — even .if he has to take Iowa State Coach Earle Bruce and some Iowa State films with him into the offices of the Chicago Bears.

Coach's promotion makes big waves By CHUCK BURDICK When Beanie Cooper resigned at Heelan of Sioux City last spring to accept the head football coaching job at South Dakota University, it set in motion a chain reaction that produced the following: • A former Register Coach of the Year moving to the college ranks, • The coach of a conference champion also joining a college program. • A former coach of a state playoff championship team moving to a larger school. • A coach of one parochial school moving across the state to another. • The hiring of a coach's son, who now will be in the same league as his father. IF YOU'VE lost track, here's how it went alter Cooper, The Register's Coach of the Year in 1971, left Iowa. Among the first he hired as an assistant at South Dakota was Rich Wulkow, whose Denison team won the Midwest Conference crown and finished 8-1 last fall. Denison, in turn, hired Mel Tjeerdsma, who directed Sale of Giants 'imminent' Leased Wire From Dow Jones SAN FRANCISCO, CALIF. -- Sale of the San Francisco Giants is "imminent," Horace Stoneham, club president, said Tuesday. By imminent, Stoneham said he meant "within 60 days." He denied a wire service report that the Giants have reached agreement to sell the club and its assets for $17 million to a Japanese syndicate. But he said the Japanese group is the most promising of three potential buyers. He said the club is still, "negotiating," with the Japanese group and two American groups. He added that the Japanese group has offered to buy the club for a figure higher than the reported $17 million and that its price is higher than the other two groups. The formal name of the club is the National Exhibition Co. Its assets include four m i n o r-league farm teams; about 1.000 acres of a hotel-motel complex; golf course and landing strip in Casa Grandt, Ariz., and some land in Sanford, Fla, Stoneham said. The Giants have been playing m San Francisco since they moved from New York in 1958. Stoneham added that the Japanese group has indicated it would keep the club in San Francisco. Sioux Center to the state Class 2A title in 1972, and Heelan followed by naming Dave Triplett, former Iowa flanker, as Cooper's successor. Triplett spent the past two seasons at "Assumption of Davenport, which named Jim Fox as its new coach. Fox is the son of Jim Pox, the veteran coach who guided Central Davenport to the 1973 Class 4A title and earned The Register's top award the same season. Young Fox had coached against his dad the past two seasons as an assistant at Moline, 111., but this will mark the first time the two collide as head coaches. The date is .Sept. 26. The Heelan and Assumption coaching changes make up half of the alterations in Class 4A ranks this fall. THE ONLY other new 4A bosses are Dave Clement at Ottumwa and Clarence (Bud) Mounts at Tech of Des Moines. Clement, another former Iowa player, directed Regina of Iowa City to the 2A playoffs in 1973 and coached last year at Macomb, 111. Dave replaces veteran Jack Blazek, who was fired in the mid-season and was replaced Collegiate all-Americans Andy Bean and Curtis Strange advanced with ease and 16- year-old John Kircher and Tom Kelley provided the major surprises of the day. Kircher, a junior at McQuaid High School in Rochester, N.Y., rolled in a 22-foot birdie putt on the eighteenth hole for a l-up victory over veteran Charlie Harrison of Atlanta. Upsets Campbell Then Kelley, of Fort Wayne, Ind., and playing in the tournament for the first time, survived bogeys on the last two holes for a 1-up decision over Bill Campbell, the 1964 champion. Kelley took the lead for good over Campbell with a birdie on No. 16, and the Walker Cup veteran from Huntington W.Va., missed his chance to send the match into overtime when his six-foot par putt wen past the cup on the last hole. "You've got to look at it two ways," said Kelly of his match with Campbell. "You can look at him as a man and be scared, or you .can just forget about H'm and play your game. I just chose to play." Lance Ten Broeck, the South- w e s t Conference champion from the University of Texas, shot two-under-par golf in a 5 and 4 romp over Mike Preston of Cream Ridge, N.J. West Ousted Four of the 72 matches were not completed due to darkness and will resume today. Harrison and Campbell weren't the only surprise losers. 10-9 the first game of a doubleheadcr. McBride singled off Jose Sosa leading off the twelfth and was sacrificed by pitcher Al Hnibos- ky before Smith's single ended the teams' second consecutive extra-inning game. The clubs had played a 3-3, 10-inning deadlock Monday night. The Cardinals were outhit, 20-13, and overcame an 8-1 deficit. Fast Start Jerry DaVanon slammed two triples and a single, Bob Watson collected three hits and pitcher James Rodney Richard cracked two doubles to build Houston's early lead. St. Louis came back with a six-run eighth-inning to get within 8-7 and tied it with two runs in the ninth after the Astros added a run. Bake McBride tripled with one out in the first and scored on Willie Davis' sacrifice fly after Houston took a 3-0 lead in its first. Cards Charge In the seventh, after the Astros boosted their lead to 8-1, singles by Ted Simmons and Larry Lint/ combined with walks to Smith and pinch-hitter Ron Fairly to score a second Cardinal run. A walk to Mike Tyson forced in another run before Hector Cruz hit a bases-clearing triple and scored on Luis Melendez's grounder to cap the six-run inning. FIRST 8 HIT SAFELY.
