High Point Enterprise (Newspaper) - October 7, 1972, High Point, North Carolina First half summarized Washington a a Good evening ladies and gentlemen. This is Howard Lowell and we re at halftime at presidential election stadium where we Are witnessing one of the duller political football games Ever played before a nationwide to audience. A the Mcgovern team is behind by 28 Points in the polls and the Nixon team seems to be running at will. This is particularly interesting because Nixon has not even been in the Ball game. He a been sitting on the Bench and sending in plays to his assistants. This has enraged the Mcgovern team who claim they came to play Nixon and not his flunkies. Put Nixon has said it is unprofessional for someone in his position to go out on the Field and mix it up with the Mcgovern rabble. A in the first Quarter the Mcgovern team got off to a had Start when Mcgovern s Star running Back. Tom Eagleton fumbled the Ball. Mcgovern backed Eagleton in the Fumble but a few minutes later substituted Sarge Shriver in the Backfield and sent Eagleton to the locker room. A this caused great consternation on the team and they were penalized one month for unsportsmanlike credibility. A another thing that caused the Mcgovern team to lose yardage was that although Mcgovern is the quarterback everyone on the team was calling a different play. A when Mcgovern would Call for a pass Shriver would run with the Ball. When Mcgovern signalled for a punt several of his linemen went Over his head and tried an end run. It took almost the entire first half for Mcgovern to persuade the fans he was calling the signals and Many people still Are not convinced. A the Mcgovern team was selected to play in the White House bowl because of their new Brand of football. But As we have seen during the first half they Are playing the same style of football As previous teams without i might add much Success. A there has been a great Deal of recrimination about this contest. The Mcgovern team claims the Nixon team bugged the Mcgovern locker room and stole the Mcgovern game plan. A Nixon had one of his assistant coaches look into these charges in what he called the a most thorough love Stag Yon in football the assistant coach concluded no one on the Nixon team had anything to do with the bugging of the locker room and was appalled that the Mcgovern team would make an Issue of it. A the Mcgovern team also has claimed that one of the reasons it Hasni to played Well is the Lack of Money. Their helmets Are dented their shoulder pads Are torn and a few of the players have no shoes. They maintain every time the Nixon team Calls a timeout the water boy Maurice stans brings another bucket of Money onto the Field. A Money does seem to be a problem in this game but that a Only part of it. Lets face it folks George Mcgovern is no Joe Namath. His plays have been unimaginative his Ball handling suspect and As far As the fans Are concerned his passes have not been on target. A the Nixon team with its huge Lead is playing it Safe using up the clock with runs Down the Middle. The name of the game As far As Nixon is concerned is defense. A and that about summarizes the first half. The teams have now come Back on the Field for the second half. A there is Mcgovern and Shriver screaming at Nixon to get off the Bench but Nixon is ignoring them and instructing Spiro Agnew where to kick the copyright 1972, los Angeles times High Point Enterprise saturday afternoon october 7, 1972 Page 2a for tax purposes farm land below value Greensboro Guilford county commissioners indicated Friday they feel farm lands throughout the county Are pegged at below Market values.
