One of a number of costly Wash mistakes, a fumble by Craig Roalson on a pass at- tempt from his own 37, set up the game's only score witli left in the contest. Roalson dropped back be- hind line protection, bul couid find no receiver. He was hit on around the 23-yard line and Jeff's Terry Earnest picked up the last of three lost Wash fumbles on (he IS. On the third play, quarter- back Fred Stoeker faked well into the line and then raced outside into the end zone. He kicked the extra point for the final score that left Jeff 4-1 in the Mississippi Valley confer- ence lead with a 4-0 league mark. Wash got one last chance to tie or win the game with 40 seconds lo go when quarter- back Craig Roalson uncorked a 55-yard pass lo Steve Meier, who was caught from behind al the Jeff 15. which had only two first downs, both by penalty, at halftimc, ended up with a 10-9 edge in that department, largely on Iwo second half drives. The firsl ended in a field goal altempt by Stoeker that was wide, and the second produced the game's only score. "We had tinkered around with the Wash smiled Jeff Coach Jack Fisk, "and we used it a lot in the second half with good re- sults." Disappointed Wash coach Wally Sheets agreed that Jeff had hit them with his own attack. "We contained them Fred Sloeker, Jeff quarterback, plunged for yardage in this action at Kingston stadium Friday night.

Both Fisk and Sheets admit- ted that mistakes cost the Warriors, who did all the first half threatening. Wash wound up with 45 yards in penalties, several of which were costly. One was a personal foul with two min- utes to go at (he 1! after Steve Klood had uncorked a (15-yard punt to the Jeff one. Wash also lost three fum- bles, one (hat set up the game's only TD, and two in the first half on that kept Wash out of Jefferson territory. Fisk said, however, that Jeff had its share of bad breaks, too. Particularly on a second half call in which a Jeff receiver appeared to be tripped deep in Wash territo- ry. "The officials missed an obvious interference he explained, "and thai cost us a touchdown." Even with Jeff's second-half comeback, Wash wound up with a statistical edge 157 total yards to for the .1- Hawks. "It's a bin admitted Fisk, "but we've gut some tough games ahead."

The loss dropped the Indi- ans to 1-2 in the' loop race and 1-4 over-all. Coach Hob Thiirness thought his team played hard, but an inexperienced defense made two serious errors in the first half.

Beckman Turns Back JL I Prairie in 16-12 Test i By Steve Allspach Amid the almost deafening silence of the losing dressing room, Gary Leoper tried to find some solace. A glance at the statistics chart didn't make it any easier. His Prairie football team had just dropped a lfi-12 deci- sion to Dyersville Beckman, a loss that dimmed the Hawks hopes of an East Central Iowa title, and he was looking for some answers. It didn't take long. "No doubt about mut- tered the first-year mentor, "we fumbled it away. You can't give up the football against a fine team like Beck- man and expect lo win. "We had two good drives going when we lost the ball and two other bobbles set up their touchdowns." For the record, the Hawks did have enormous problems finding the handle on the foot- ball, and they served it over to the Blazers on four occasions. They managed to retrieve three other bobbles. The first giveaway came on the kickoff and Beckman quickly punched in a touch- down from ,11! yards out. Bob Knipper plunged the decisive yard at but it was a 14-yard pass reception by Tim English that keyed the drive. Prairie retaliated quickly when Randy Myers hurled a S2-yard TD pass to Terry Feyo, a combination that clicked for 84 yards before the night ended. Bul the fumble again plagued Prairie and after grinding yards to Beck- man's 43, Hob Sirowy was stripped of the football and the Blazers marched quickly to paydirt. Jeff Schneiders went the final ten yards. Prairie established a ground game early, but it wasn't dictated by the wet, rainy conditions in the first half. Statistics NEW DELHI (AP) The head of the Indian Lawn Tennis Federation said Satur- day that as long as South Af- ricans continue apartheid in sports, there is no going back on India's decision not lo play them for the Davis Cup tennis championship. R. K. Khanna said he had received a telephone appeal from Basil Reay, secretary of the International Lawn Tennis Federation, calling on India lo reconsider and avoid Idling the South Africans take the ('.up by default "If there is no apartheid at least in sports in South Africa, and if some sort of guarantee is given, then we can recon- Khanna said. "But we know this is not the case." The Indian tennis enthusiast said Reay was sending him a cable pulling Ihe appeal in writing. When the cable ar- rived, he added, he will con- sider whether the appeal is worth consideration by oilier Indian Federation officials. But he insisted that the In- dian government was not being consulted in the matter since the decision belonged to the Lawn Tennis Federation. Khanna had said earlier, however, that the boycott was "in consonance" with Indian government policy and had the backing of Ihe Indian Foreign Ministry. India has no official rela- tions with Sinilli Africa and is a vocal opponent of apartheid.
