Lancaster Eagle Gazette (Newspaper) - August 3, 1973, Lancaster, Ohio Allen Wants To Win But Without Brown By ANDY LIPPMAN Associated Press Sports Writer George Allen says he's out to win tonight when the Washing- ton Redksms host the Detroit Lions. But the Redskin coach is not about to do anything reck- less like risking last year's most valuable player, Larry Brown. As was done lasi year, except toward the end of the National Football preseason. Brown will be on the sidelines, but Duane Thomas, whose running abili- ties most Redskins fans have only heard about, will be on display. With a couple of exceptions, the Redskins starting lineup will be the same as the team that lost last year's Super Bowl to Miami 14-7. Staubach Starting Roger Staubach will be get- ting the nod in Dallas' game Romaniszyn Learns To Show His Respect By RICHARD BILOTTI HIRAM, Ohio (AP) Cleve- land' Browns rookie linebacker Jim Romaniszyn recently learned to respect the defensive side of football. Romaniszyn spent his entire college career as a running back at Edinboro State College in Edinboro, Pa. "I realized the prob- lems that defensemen have." said the 21-year-old rookie, after spending four weeks with the Browns. "When I ran in college the quarterback called the play and I ran he said. "Now as a defensive linebacker I've got to think more Defense is an en- tirely different game than of- iense. You can't just react. You've always got a different assignment." Romaniszyn reported to the Browns' rookie spring session at 224-pounds, seven pounds over his normal weight. Out Of Shape "They thought I was out of shape." he said. "After they saw how fast I ran the mile they decided I'd make a good linebacker because of my weight.' Romaniszyn is happy in the linebacker spot because he has a better chance of making the team. The Browns have a lot of depth in running backs. He is lookmg forward to play- ing in Cleveland Stadium when the Browns' open their exhibi- tion season against the San Francisco 49ers Monday night. "It will be quite a he said. "I come from a small school and the largest crowd I ever played in front of was> about The Browns' front office is projecting a crowd of for the exhibition game. Romaniszyn, who makes his home in Titusville, Pa., doesn't mind coming from a small school Where You're From "When you first come to camp everybody's concerned about what school you come he said. "I'm sure it makes a difference when you get drafted and how much you sign for. But after you're here awhile the attitude changes and everybody accepts you for how you perform on the field." Romaruszyn has a degree in biology from Edinboro and would like to pursue a career in wildlife management if he doesn't make the pro level. "You see a lot of guys leave he said. "But you can't Jet the thought of your being cut bother you. I'm still here so I must be doing a good job."

Coach Tom Landry said Staubach would give way in the second half to Jack Concannon. There is also a chance that Craig Morton, whose arrival at the Cowboy camp was delayed because of a contract dispute, might see action. Houston hopes the same com- bination will click twice when they clash with the New York Jets tonight Dan Pastorini will oppose the Jets' star Joe Nam- ath. in the same duel which produced the Oilers only victo- ry last season.

Oilers Swap Two The Oilers made two trades rookie wide receiver Edesel Garrison to the Los Angeles Rams for an undis- closed draft choice and acquir- ing running back Eddie Rich- ardson from New York for an eighth round 1974 draft choice. Kansas City Coach Hank Stram said three veterans are definitely out of his team's opening game. Guard Mo Moor- man, wide receiver Otis Taylor and left cornerback Jim Mar- salis are all definitely going to be out and the status of defen- sive tackle Buck Buchanon and center Jack Rudnay is still not known. Running back Eddie Ray is being fined each day he re- mains absent from the camp of the Atlanta Falcons, according to coach Norm Van Brocklin. The Falcon coach hinted he did not expect the former Lousiana State University star to show up at pre-season camp. Two rookie centers joined the St. Louis Cardinals at their training camp. Tom Brahaney, a 6-foot-2. 240-pound lineman was on the field an hour after singing his contract. Mike Irons came from Washington for the wiiver price. Billie Jean Letting Racquet Do Her Talking To Riggs By CHUCK ADAMS Associated Press Sports Writer NEW YORK (AP) "I'm going to let my racquet speak for itself" is how Wimbledon champion Billie Jean King summarizes her chances in "the tennis battle of all one of the condi- tions of the match may also in her favor.

Eagle-Gazette PAGE 19 Weiskopf Is Hoping For More Of Same By BOB GREEN HARRISON. N. Y. (AP) Tom Weiskopf tried again to- day to extend a recent record of success that has been called golf's greatest since Byron Nel- son's exploits of 1946. Weiskopf, and the other 146 members of the field, were de- layed by a day in their start in the Westchester Golf Classic, one of pro golf's rich- est events. The scheduled opening round Thursday was wiped out by heavy, day-long rains that turned the par 72 Westchester Country Club course into a soggy quagmire and cast doubts on officials' ability to get in today's round. The 72-hole event was re- scheduled for single rounds to- day and Saturday, with a double round of 36 holes set for Sunday. Two Options Should the rains in suburban New York continue or if the tight little layout remains too MARK KRAKER accepts the lete of the Year award from the Veterans of Foreign Wars Ath- VFW's Jerry Gilgenbach. Lucas, Siegfried, Warfield Present Big Foot Prints For Mark Kraker aired on prime time television. Bobby and Billie Jean, the king of male chauvinists in a studio in New York and Mrs. King in another in Denver, were led by Howard Cosell, who will serve as sportscaster :or the match, through the lat- est of a series of promotions building up the event. ABC has sold all of they com- mercial time for the match. No monetary figure was announced. The match will be a best-of-5 sets affair. And while Riggs has loudly forecast victory Mrs. King. Billie Jean. 29, will nave youth on her side. When overwhelmed Margaret Court of Australia in their "Battle of the Sexes" on Moth- er's Day, it was best-of-3. In this case, however, unless Riggs can take three straight sets, he runs the risk of coming away from the match with nothing to show for it but a good workout...and all that pub- licity. Cincinnati Faces Miami Saturday WILMINGTON, Ohio (AP) The Cincinnati Bengals were to face a short practice session to- day before flying to Miami for their Saturday season opener against the Dolphins. Coach Paul Brown called Thursday's workout "a general overall tuneup on everything we've taken on. It was a day of timing and reviewing the plays we've got." Rookie center Doug Bell of Ball State was waived by the club. He was the third rookie dropped this week. Veteran offensive guard Pat Matson will remain in Cincin- nati for the game. He pulled a leg muscle Wednesday. WBA Meeting Set The Lancaster Women's Bowling Association will hold its fall meeting Monday evening at at the Elks Home.

Not too much the Ohio Veterans of Foreign Wars' Athlete of the Tcear Award, and Ohio State University. Lucas, Siefgried, and Warfield all won the coveted trophy several years ago and have gone on to stardom with the Buckeyes and the pay-for-play ranks of the pros. Kraker on the other hand graduated from Columbus Eastmoor last spring and won't attend Ohio State until this fall. He signed a baseball scholarship with the Buckeyes following a senior year that saw him bat .446 and steal 57 bases. Lancaster Native He is the son of Lancaster physician Dr. Jack L. Kraker, 1272 Sheridan Drive, and Mrs. Barbara Kraker of Columbus. Mark was a Columbus baseball All-City player as a sophomore and senior. He missed out on the honor his junior year when he was sidelined with a broken wrist. He was also a three year All- City selection in football at quarterback, and narrowly missed being named Back of the Year in Central Ohio finisliing a close second to Art Yaroch of Columbus Watterson. A 3.0 student, he teamed with Ohio State's freshman running sesnation, Archie Griffin, to lead Eastmoor into the top ten.

Ken Cunningham, who won the award in 1961 after an outstanding high school career at East Liverpool where he was an All State quarterback and jasketball guard, probably summed up the honor best. "When I got the award I was Cunningham said recently in a story. "I was humble, when I throught of people like Lucas and Siegfried who had won it before." Lucas, perhaps best typifies what the award stands for. He was a tremendous high school athlete and scholar at Middletown High School setting records that still stand. He was an All-American at Ohio State leading the Bucks to three Big Ten titles and two National Collegiate Athletic Association title games only to lose. His points are still a GOLF HARRISON, N.Y.

Lucas is groomed, poised, and articulate hke many of the other winners. Lucas, Siegfried, Warfield.

Secretariat Set In Whitney By TED MEIER Associated Press Sports Writer Secretariat, the King of the turf world, puts his regal pres- ence on display in the added Whitney Stakes at histor- ic Saratoga race track Satur- day. Already a legend in his own time, the 3-year-old Meadow- Stable colt will be competing against older horses for the f j-st time. No matter, he is ex- pected to win and join the equine millionaire's club. The first Triple Crown winner in a quarter of a century has earned in his 16 career starts. The appearance of Secretar- iat in the Whitney will be na- tionally televised over the CBS network. The popularity of Secretariat seems certain to attract a record crowd of 30.000 to the century-old Saratoga track. And the King is ready for the I's-mile test against a field likely to include True Knight, Onion, Tri Jet, West Coast Scout, Anno and Rule by Rea- son.
