Wis. (AP) -Pans cheered the pickets and a deputy police chief expressed regret Thursday as 21 players were taken into custody after refusing to halt a demonstration in support of the National Football League strike.  The pickets, most of them Green Bay Packers and Chicago Bears, were freed on bond after strolling to police vans, led bv player Ken Bowman and a deputy police chief, Harold Compton, with whom he walked arm-in-arm.  Disliked Arrests  Compton called himself a fan who disliked making the arrests. He gave Bowman, a practicing attorney, an opportunity to discuss legal issues with pickets before making the arrests as fans streamed past to a Bears-Packers charity scrimmage staged mostly by rookies and free agents.  Rookies converted two pass interceptions into touchdowns as Packers won 17-0. Chester Marcol, one of three Packer regulars who crossed picket lines, added a field goal.  In the Lambeau Field parking lot, spectators cheered the pickets and voiced objections to  By Gus Schrader  the arrests.

The player was Leonard G Koenecke. born Jan. IB, 1906, in Baraboo. Wis. He died Sept. 17, 1935, after being struck by a fire extinguisher when he became unruly on the airplane. He had played outfield for the Giants in 1932 and for the Dodgers in 1934-35.  We are indebted to The Gazette s news editor, Mac Thompson, and Emil Hubert, 189 Twenty-first avenue SW. C R , for being the first to notify us.  OOO  —While we were on vacation, Coe’s Marcus Jackson was named head basketball coach at Dartmouth. We join many Coe and Cedar Rapids-area folks in congratulating Marcus on his well-deserved promotion to a major basketball school. However, we’re sorry to see him leave, as he has done an amazing job of building Coe basketball in three seasons.  Marcus is in Hanover, N.H., interviewing candidates for two assistant coaching jobs and checking on recruiting.  Freshmen aren t eligible for varsity play in the Ivy league, so Marcus wants to be sure to get a good man to coach the frosh team. The other will be his varsity aide.  One of them may be Jerry Holbrook, who assisted Marcus at Coe for three years and knows his system well. The other may be a Marcus jackson man from the former Dartmouth staff, although federal law now requires all such jobs be advertised for two weeks before final selections are made.  Mrs. Jackson says the family plans to move to Dartmouth about Aug. IO. She went there recently with Marcus and said they were impressed with the countryside as well as the school. “It’s so green and cool in New Hampshire,” she said. “I don’t believe they have an air-conditioner anywhere on the campus, and they don’t need them.”  OOO  Personals dept.: Wishing a speedy recovery to John Scuffham, Cornell college soccer coach, who is in Room 428 at St. Luke’s after spinal surgery. . .

OOO  —Kevin Drake, Houston's No. I draft  choice who is looking super as center fielder  for the C. R. Astros, says he won't try to play college football this fall This would be posse hie, as the NCAA has passed a rule permitting an athlete to be amateur in one sport even if he is a pro in another.  “I had signed a scholarship tender to play football at UCLA,” Drake said, “but I pre ferred baseball — especially after Houston drafted me No. I, and I will have missed too much football practice by the time I get back to UCLA. Besides, I wanted to play quarterback. and they probably would have moved me to defensive back this fall because I would be behind the other quarterbacks. I still plan to attend UCLA, but not for football.”  Had Drake chosen football, he could have returned to Iowa Sept. ll. as the Uclans play the Hawkeyes in Kinnick stadium then  OOO —We hear Harold Roberts, former Iowa  football aide, soon will be announced as athletic coordinator at Kirkwood Community college of C.
