A call may or may not come soon. Either way he knows the business well enough not to take it personally. Carpenter was the guest speaker at the New Braunfels Rotary Club luncheon on Wednesday. Cathy Carpenter, his daughter and general manager of Hotel Faust, gave the introduction. "As far as my father's football career goes, he'll have to tell you more about that because he really didn't bring his work home that much," she said. "Most of all, he has always been a real fair person at home and on the field." Fair isn’t an easy concept in the NFL. Carpenter, 63, who as a coach has changed teams about once every three years over last three decades, realizes it is mostly about winning. "The hardest thing in this job is taking the guys you coach for four or five years and all of a sudden it reaches a point where you have to say, "You aren't cutting it anymore. "It's hard because over the years they become like a family, and it can be real tough to tell someone, 'We no longer need you. You don’t fit in with our plans. Good luck. We'll waive you.' That's the toughest part about football." As a first- year coach for the Minnesota Vikings in 1964, Carpenter had the painful responsibility of cutting his own brother from the team. It was a task he dreaded but had to do, understanding the bottom-line nature of his profession. Preston Carpenter, his brother and all-pro receiver who played for the Pittsburgh Steelers and Cleveland Browns, didn't hold it a against Lew. Preston had joined the team at midseason because of a new job. "That was as nice as I could say it. "Over a period of years coaching now, it doesn’t bother me half as bad as it used to because," he said jokingly, "I figure if I could tell one of my blood kin goodbye, it wouldn't hurt me to tell somebody I didn't know that well." As both a coach and player, Carpenter has seen his fair share of abrupt dismissals. In 1956, the year after being taken by the Detroit Lions in the first round from the University of Arkansas where he was a star offensive back, Carpenter was drafted into the U.S. Lew Carpenter, a long-time NFL player injuries to two tight-ends. and coach, could be back with the Eagles. Army. His assignment Room had to be made when the players returned the next season. "I had to tell him, "I don't think your services are going to be needed here anymore at the Vikings," Carpenter said. "You should look for entailed two years in Germany where he fulfilled his duty and was ready to return to the Lions. When he arrived in New York, a messenger was waiting with a ticket to Cleveland. The man notified him that he was traded to the Browns. "My wife was waiting for me in Detroit, so I called and told her, 'We'll have to meet in Cleveland. That's where were going to be now.' That's the way pro football is operated." The nature of the NFL can be cold, but Carpenter hasn't let it kill his drive to succeed. The teams and players keep coming and going, and the list of franchises for which he has coached have had storied histories. They include stints in Washington, St. Louis, Houston, Atlanta and Green Bay where he was under the tutelage of the great Vince Lombardi. The players he has worked with are just as impressive. To name a few: Amad Rashad, James Lofton, Charlie Taylor, Kenny Bouroughs, and Billy "White Shoes" Johnson. Most recently Carpenter moved on from Philadelphia after head coach Rich Kotite was fired at the end of the 1994 season. Now he’s heard word of interest from the Eagles new head coach who he will meet and talk to this week. An offer could be coming within days. But then again, it could not. "I may know sometime soon whether I need to pack some warm clothes to go to Philadelphia or come on back to Texas to look for a job." Gingrich to attack baseball strike By BEN WALKER AP Baseball Writer WASHLNGTON (AP) — House Speaker Newt Gingrich said today he was willing to meet with a federal mediator to discuss ways to settle the protracted baseball strike, but said he thought congressional intervention would be “a very bad idea." Telling reporters that he and Senate Majority leader Bob Dole were prepared to discuss the situation with W J Usery. Gingrich also reiterated that he thought Congress should be focusing on other issues. The fact is. if you start settling (labor disputes) industry by industry, how many should we solve." he said. "I just think it’s a very bad idea to politicize it." Gingnch said he did not think that Congress had "the wisdom to intervene in a single industry that has nothing to do with national safely.” “We are not in a position today to rush into any decision I am not closing (he door ... I just do not think thai Congress should rush into it,” he said. "I just think the U.S. Congress should be very cautious.... The United States government has enough things it’s doing badly, illegal immigration being an example, that it this Congress just does right the things that we already should have been doing. I think we would have had a taniasUc decade ..."

Present at the signing were her mother, Bari Conley, and coach Margaret Mitcham. Rockets deal with Maxwell By ROB GLOSTER AP Sports Writer SACRAMENTO. Calif. (AP) — The Houston Rockets insist they’ll handle the suspension of Vernon Maxwell just as they would the loss of an injured player.

The fine matched the highest in league history and the suspension was the second longest. "This is just my reaction. Bul from what Vernon said about the incident, if I’d have been there. I’d have probably cold-cocked him, tot).’’ attorney Dick DeGuenn told the Houston Chronicle on Wednesday .
