GODLEY Sports Editor Lew Carpenter a resident of New Braunfels and recently released Philadelphia Eagles assis tant coach is looking for another job in pro football 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 man ager of Hotel Faust gave the introduction As far as my fathers football career goes hell have to tell you more about that because he really didnt bring his work home that she said Most of all he has always been a real fair person at home and on the Fair isnt an easy concept in the NFL Car penter 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 arent cutting it anymore Its 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 dont fit in with our plans Good luck Well waive Thats the toughest part about As a firstyear coach for the Minnesota Vikings in 1964 Car penter had the painful responsibility of cutting his own brother from the team It was a task he dreaded but had to do understanding the bot tomline nature of his profession Preston Carpenter his brother and allpro receiver who played for the Pittsburgh Steelcrs and Cleveland Browns didnt hold it a against Lew Preston had joined the team at mid a new job That was as nice as I could say it Over a period of years coaching now it doesnt bother me half as bad as it used to he said jok ingly 1 figure if I could tell one of my blood kin goodbye it wouldnt hurt me to tell somebody I didnt know that 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 Univer sity of Arkansas where he was a star offensive back Carpenter was season because of Lew Carpenter a longtime NFL player drafted into the injuries to two tightends 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 dont think your ser vices are going to be needed here anymore at the 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 Well have to meet in Cleve land Thats where were going to be Thats the way pro football is The nature of the NFL can be cold but Car penter hasnt 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 hes 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 Gingrich to attack baseball strike By BEN WALKER AP Baseball Writer WASHINGTON 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 Telling reporters that he and Senate Majority Leader Bob Dole were pre pared to discuss the situation with 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 he said I just think its a very bad idea to politicize Gingrich said he did not think that Congress had the wisdom to inter vene in a single industry that has noth ing to do with national We are not in a position today to rush into any decision I am not clos ing the door I just do not think that Congress should rush into he said I just think the Congress should be very The Unit ed States government has enough things its doing badly illegal immi gration being an example that if this Congress just does right the things that we already should have been doing I think we would have had a fantastic Sign of the times HeraldZeitung photo by MICHAEL DARNALL

really good job with the 3point said TCU coach Billy Tubbs They did a better job in their press than we did handling their Rockets deal with Maxwell By ROB GLOSTER AP Sports Writer SACRAMENTO Calif AP The Houston Rockets insist theyll handle the suspension of Vernon Maxwell just as they would the loss of an injured player Maxwell meanwhile is handling it through his attorney and saying he was provoked into punching a fan by the mans racist and defamatory comments Maxwell was suspended for at least 10 games and fined by the NBA on Wednesday for going into the stands and punching a heckler during a game at Portland two nights earlier The fine matched the highest in league history and the suspension was the second longest This is just my reaction But from what Vernon said about the incident if Id have been there Id have probably coldcocked him attorney Dick DeGuerin told the Houston Chronicle on Wednes day You cant think of anything more vulgar more fightingwords than what this guy said to The man who was punched Steve George denied saying anything inflammatory Georges attorney Richard Maizels said his client would sign a complaint with the district attorney Maizels said a civil lawsuit also is possible but believes there is a good chance of a settlement In the meantime DeGuerin put out Maxwells side of the story NBA standings National Basketball Association At A Glance
