THE NEWS, Frederick, Maryland September «, 1M7 Page 11 Dallas Is Rated Eastern Choice Comer Tabs Cooper As QB Starter NEW YORK (AP) -- The Dallas Cowboys probably will win the Eastern Conference title in the National Football League for the second straight year after beating a surprising Pittsburgh team in the divisional playoffs Dec. 24 at Dallas. Under the new NFL setup, Dallas will compete in the Capitol Division against Washington, Philadelphia and the expansion team from New Orleans. The capitol winner will compete for the Eastern Conference crown against the winner of the ^enUi- ry Division made up of Pittsburgh, St. Louis, Cleveland and New York. The eventual Eastern winner will meet the Western Conference champ for the NFL title in Orioles Drop Two To Angels ANAHEIM (AP) -- Bubba Morton drove in eight rune four in each game Tuesday as ·lie Calirornia. Angels swept a doubleheader from Baltimore, the Western city, Sunday, Dec. 31. Here's the way the two divisions look from here: Capitol 1. Dallas 2. Washington 3. Philadelphia 4. New Orleans Century 1. Pittsburgh 2. St. Louis 3. Cleveland 4. New York The Capitol Division appears to be one of the strongest in the league with the Cowboys, defending their Eastern title against the Redskins, Eagles and the unexpectedly tough Saints. Tom Landry's team has been slow coming around while he has been trying to work some new men into his intricate offense. Don Meredith, erratic in the early games, should straighten out once he gets in there with his regular backfield and his regular receivers. However, the Cowboys' strong point is that defense led by Bob Lilly. Mel Renfro is strictly e defensive back this year witn r. more experiments on of fen: Chuck Howley, L»e Roy Jordan George Andrie, Jethro Pugh and Willie Townes form a rugged By ARTHUR D. POSTAL Sports Editor Frederick football coach Roy Comer has tabbed junior Petey Cooper as his starting quarterback for Fridaj night's opening Cadet conflict with Glenelg at Thomas Johnson. Cooper, a lithe, 5-10, 165- pounder, will be attempting to fill the big shoes of Jeff Freland, who tossed for 20 scores last season while leading the Cadets to a slice of the Tri-State League championship. Comer said yesterday that Cooper was picked to start because of his ability to keep the Cadets m o v i n g both through the-air and on the ground. In winning the starting quarterback slot, Cooper beat out Gary O'Bryan and Earl Main Comer s a i d both will probably see plenty of action in the game, the only one on the area slate. Main, Comer said, will be used extensively when the Cadets gear the attack to the running game, while O'Bryan, in his first season in a football uniform, "has Petey Cooper . . Cadet Starter a lot of potential, especially as a passer, but wfll have to get his fundamentals down pat." Comer, in his second season as Cadet grid coach, has been impressed with the Cadets in early season drills, but still seems a bit concerned about interior blocking. The Cadets did a good job in consecutive scrimmages, handling Woodward w i t h ease two weeks ago, and coming up with the only four touchdowns scored Saturday in an unique triangular scrimmage with Sherwood and Wheaton. Comer is still unsure about his starting lineups, and expects to keep moving personnel through Thursday. The interior b l o c k i n g problem, he says, is due to the inability of his offensive blockers to hold off the opposition long enough to turn a short gain into a 15 or 20- yard advance. Comer has been particularly impressed with the work of his two offensive ends, Ronny Proctor and Chuck Foreman, both juniors, fullback Stan Biggus, safety John Sherman and tackle Richard Theis. Proctor, who saw some action last season, beat out Chip Bowens, a newcomer from Hagerstown, and young Kenny Boyd, a sophomore also playing his first season. Comer says he is an excellent blocker and has sure hands, but is worried that his lack of speed may require him to be spelled in some passing situations. Foreman, the mean, 6-3, 195-pounder, started l a s t season as a sophomore, and has impressed even opponents with his speed and blocking. "He gives it that extra effort," says Comer, "and has sure hands." The coaches have been working with him on pass- catching because he has developed a bad habit of catching passes with his stomach and not reaching out. "We're working with him on this," Comer says, "but mainly it's a matter of instinct." Biggus was moved from guard to fullback this season by the Cadets, while Sherman is a holdover from last season at the safety spot. Theis has particularly impressed the coaches at the tackle spot with his blocking. A 185-pounder, he helps the Cadets solve the lingering problem of not enough heft up front. White Comer is not too sure of the Glenelg material, it is known that the Gladiators have moved an outstanding halfback Woody Merkle. to quarterback, and have an outstanding lineman in 6-0, 225-pound Dan Shoemaker. The Cadet contest is the opener on the area slate. Thomas Johnson waits until next Saturday, when it travels to Glenelg. In other Tri-State action, Martinsburg opened up last Friday night by absorbing a 32-13 shellacking f r o m James Wood of Winchester, Va. In other games, Handtey will be at Martlnsburg, North Hagerstown opens at Chambersburg. and Westminster opens at Gettys burg. 7-2 and 11-4. The sweep gave the Angels barrier against any attack, seven victories in their last eight games.

Bill Kilmer has been nothing short of spectacular for the New Orleans Saints in the preseason games.

By STAN GOLDBERG Staff writer In 1914, the Boston Braves went from last place in mid- season to first place by the end of the year. A couple years before that t.ie Washington Senators went from 10th to second in one year. This year's "miracle" team is the Boston Red Sox, who hope to climb from a ninth place finish last year to first this season. "Hitting is our m a i n strength," catcher Elston Howard commented before the Bosox twinbill with Washington Monday. "Anytime a team pushes runs cross the plate it will be a threat.' Hitting certainly is the Red Sox main strength. They lead the league with a 259 batting average. In Carl Yastremski and George Scott they have two of the four .300 hitters in the American League. They're not weak on the pitching side either w i t h Jim Lonborg, who suddenly came up with a slider, and has used it to win 18 games already. But, if the Boston team that played Washington Monday wins the pennant the American League is in trouble. Boston only split the twinbill because of a throwing error by a Washington pitcher. At one time they had a man picked off first with one out and George Scott at bat and both of their starting pitchers were knocked out of the box. Things got so bad that early in the second game one Boston writer, who had been drinking moderately during the first game, gulped down two beers in one inning. Another writer took up a Boston paper and began to read the ads The Washington fans were dumbfounded They h a d come to root for Boston, but suddenly found the hometown c'ub much more inter- esting to watch. S i g n s reading "Dalton Jones for President," and "We're No. 1", which were being waved early in the game just laid on the ground during the end. The injury to Tony Conigliaro was evident as his two replacements went 0-8. Manager Dick Williams finally put up a pinch hitter for one of them late in the game and he singled. The signs along the walls Continued On Page 12) The Twins adde single runs n the second on Ted Uhlaen- der's triple and a groundout and n the filth on a walk and sin- pies by Carew and Jerry Zimnerman. Minnesota then wrapped it up with a two-run sixth. Killebrew doubled with two out, Oliva was walked intentionally, both moved up on a wild pitch and .Allison singled them home. 1 Uhlaender tripled again in the seventh and scored on a wild pitch. Kaat, also 11-13, gave up Joe Azcue's llth home run with Tony Horton on base in the sixth. He also had to pitch out of trouble in the first two innings when the Indians got two hits each inning but could not score.

Az- Bases-Loaded Walk Gives Chisox Win Over Yanks Colts Cut Terry Southall BALTIMORE (AP) -- The Baltimore Colts must trim three more players from their 43-man roster by next Monday. The Colts dropped four players Tuesday to reduce the squad to 43, the limit set at this pre-season point by the National Football League. They were Phil Sobocinski, a center from Wisconsin, Terry, 1 Southall a quarterback who i , played at Baylor, Leon Ward i an Oklahoma State linebacker, and Bob Wade, a defensive back from Morgan State. Defensive tackles Lee Anderson and Bill House were placed on waivers Monday. NEW YORK (AP) --A bases- loaded walk to Smoky Burgess iorced in the tie-breaking run in the third inning and Steve Jones and Bob Locker protected the edge with seven innings of scoreless relief, carrying the Chicago White Sox to a 5-3 victory over the New York Yankees Tuesday. The victory sent the White Sox into second place in the American League race, pending the outcome of three night tentional walk had filled the bases before Burgess batted for pitcher Wilbur Wood. Jones, a left-hander brought up from Indianapolis of the Pacific Coast League last month, then took over and retired the first eight hitters he faced before giving up a bloop double to Roy White in the fifth.

Burgess, Chicago's 41-year-old pinch-hitting specialist, drew a walk from Joe Verbanic, the third New York pitcher, with two out and the bases jammed the position of Mike Brant and Bob Haley, sending Haley, a non-letterman senior, from left half to safety, and Brant, a sophomore, to a halfback spot. From the scrub team he promoted Bob Colbert, a junior from Pittsburgh to the other halfback spot. The moves are designed to add speed to the secondary.
