Austin Summer Texan (Newspaper) - October 4, 1970, Austin, Texas Whew horns by Andy Yemma texan editor the Low keyed Urcla Bruins pulled and tugged and finally snapped in half Texas always faithful Wishbone t saturday but incredibly Ever so incredibly a lanky Young fellow named Cotton speyrer snatched up the Long end and carried the longhorns to a petrify ing 20-17 win in memorial stadium. Indeed the films should show that speyrer gathered into his arms a desperation pass from quarterback Eddie Phillips spam around near the Urcla 25 Yard line leaving Bruin cornerback Allan Ellis in a stumble and raced uncontested into the end zone before 65,000 disbelieving pairs of eyes. Speyrer feat like Randy p e s c h e i a s 44-Yard game breaking reception against Arkansas last year a clutch Aerial destined for the history books was practically the Only accomplishment the longhorns could boast of in the second half after showing signs of Potency with a 13-3 Lead before intermission. But if one can lend credibility to superstition then Darrell royals longhorns should have expected worse in the last 30 minutes. Prior to speyrer a reception the Bruins had not been scored upon in the second half. Acknowledging the hex. However Phillips and the offence lined up on their own 49 Yard line with 58 seconds remaining and Ever diminishing Hopes of a last drive to overcome a clan a 17-13 Lead. Phillips whose inconsistent passing had netted the longhorns Only 57 Yards All afternoon backed up to pass found no receiver available and scrambled for two Yards of Consolation. His next attempt arched High Over the intended arms of tight end Deryl Comer went errant but on third Down and eight Phillips pointed the projectile perfectly 13 Yards to alternate tight end Tommy Woodard for a life giving first Down. A Quick pass out of Bounds stopped the critical time mechanism on the scoreboard and on the next play a possible preview of the Luck that was to come struck. Phillips once again frustrated in finding a receiver was hit with the Ball cocked to throw and fumbled. But the bad bounded end Over end to the sidelines in front of the Urcla Bench and died on Neutral astroturf resulting in a nine Yard loss rather than a loss of the Ball for the a horns. With 20 seconds and no Texas time outs left Texas on its 45, Phillips performed his Miracle and speyrer his magic. Happy Feller added the twentieth Point for the Orange and All that remained was the shouting. But wait done to forget about that fellow who the Texas defensive secondary will remember for a Long time to come a Bruin quarterback Dennis Dummit he had already set a school record for passing yardage with 340 in 19 of 29 completions when with eight seconds left everyone knew he would go for broke again. Longhorn halfback Alan in wry was aware of Dummitt credentials after an afternoon of frustration trying to protect against his deadly look in passes to the ikes of split ends Terry Temoy who took game receiving honors with 114 Yards on six catches and Rick Wilkes who accounted for 82 Yards on five. Who Dummit aimed for on his thirtieth attempt however did t matter because Lowry 20-17 outraged him for 40 Yards to claim the Only interception of a Dummit Pas All Day. After that one second and no doubt remained a Texas Riv Enty third straight win was secure and a clan a first defeat in four games was at hand. Two minutes and 27 seconds to be exact earlier there seemed Little left for the longhorns to do but accept the inevitable Fate of a to. I team. With fourth Down and five Yards facing them on the Urcla 13, halfback Jim Bertelsen was Cut Down on a pitch out to give tile Bruins Possession again after an unsuccessful drive from the Texas 17 which ate up 6 10 of the clock. But the valiant Orange defense dug in and stymied Dummitt efforts at killing the clock on three dives up the Middle by Bruin running backs. Earlier in the final Quarter the a horns drove from their own 20 to the Bruin 37, but the drive went afoul with two incompletion a both Phillips to speyrer. The Bruins went ahead with 3 35 remaining in the third Quarter As Dummit drilled an la Yard pass to tight end Bob Christiansen in the left Comer of the South end zone.

Administration officials report privately that the prospects for continuing the ceasefire and eventually getting Israel Egypt my Jordan Kite Penna negotiation under tile auspices of the United a Lous Are brighter than they Wen immediately after the death of egyptian president Gama Abdel Nasser. The initial reaction Here was that Nasser a death raised serious dangers of turmoil and violence in the already unstable Arab world tile dangers of turmoil remain High As Washington sees the situation. Egypt still faces two months of uncertainty and potential conflict Over the select Kin of a successor to Nasser but there is increasing Hope among Washington authorities Itiat the transition will go More smoothly than they had thought. Tile most encouraging element in the situation so far is considered Here to be russians adherence to a Public policy in favor of peace and a permanent settlement in the Middle East. Nixon administration leaders generally have Felt that the russians do not w ant the situation to get out of hand and might really consider a peace settlement desirable. As seen Here there Are two major problems to be overcome. One is subordination of the palestinian guerilla movement to at least tile general authority of the jordanian government or other governments from whose territory they operate. The other is Resolution if possible of the quarrel involving Israel Alto the United states on one hand and Egypt and Russia Over Egypt a alleged violation of the military standstill since the cease fire took affect along tee sues aug. A by Congress this year to the voting rights Law including bans on literacy tests and certain state residency requirements for voting in presidential elections. Tile suit said lowering the voting age to 18 was not am or lord by any provision of the institution and therefore violated the tenth amendment which reserved to the states All Powers not specifically Given the Federal government.

Justice Frankfurter observed in Ano Liering setting. A one of those rare instances where to state the question is in effect to answer a on the 18-year-old vote Issue the judges resolved two constitutional provisions in conflict. While the first Section of the fourteenth amendment guarantees citizens equal Protection of tile Laws the second Section in providing few representation in con Gross mentions a voting age of 21. The judges said the second sect xxi a has no limiting effect on the general language of Section one with respect to voting qualification so and thus there is no limit on Congress to lower the voting age by statute. Upheld by die panel were those contested provisions of the 1970 Lawa a ban on All voting a tests and devices in states not originally covered by the 1965 voting rights Law which applied mainly to the South. A abolishment of state residency requirements in presidential elections. A a a a triggering provision which controls when tile ban on literacy tests applies to the states.
