Since we can't have the best of two worlds, a combination of the rules in the National Football League and the Canadian Football League, I murt admit that I find the NFL the most entertaining. It has little to do with my lack of patriotism, I just happen to like watching the stars of the NFL perform their game better than the CFL. One facet I definitely like about the American game is the four down system. The anticipation ol the big play, simply because of the extra down, I feel, helps keep your attention focused on the game. In the CFL, if a club gets three yards on the first down, you can bet your bottom dollar the next play will be a pass. With the exception of a fesv plays per game, the CFL game plan is almost typecast. You could write a script for the majority of almost any game. Again, it's not that the NFL contests far outnumber the CFL's games for excitement. But with the fourth down to gamble with, you do see more big plays the kind that bring you to your feet. Had I not found the NFL more enjoyable than the CFL up until now, the "American rule changes announced Thursday would have brought me around south of the border. The old adage, "a tie game is like kissing your was never more evident than in the NFL. Without the single point on punts and missed field goals, you have only two main ways to score points in the NFL a third way is by means of a safety touch, but they are few and far between. A team scores a touchdown with almost automatic convert or field goal which increases the odds on a tie game. Now, with the adoption of a 15-minute sudden-death overtime, many of these deadlocks will be broken, and I'm all for that. It may take another half hour for a game to be completed, but at least a winner will be decided in most games. Moving the goal posts to the back of the end zone will take away a few field goals, but not as many as you may think mind you. The added distance of 10 more yards for field goals did not sit too well with the men who earn their livelihood kicking. Garo Yepremian of Miami one of the best in the business, liked the game the way it was. He feels the changes will make the game even more conservative. Yepremian believes it will cut down on scoring, not add to it He is joined by another place-kicker, Jan Stenerud of Kansas City Chiefs. Stenerud, like Yepremian, thinks that the rule change will turn the game into a punting contest. The exhibition season will be the testing time for these rule changes, along with the ones giving wide receivers more protection Defensive halfbacks get away with murder on the receivers, but all that will change. Again, this rule change it is hoped, will open up the offensive game. I agree with head coaches Chuck Knox of Los Angeles and Dan Coryll of St Louis who feel the changes are good. They agree that it will reduce long-range field goal attempts. On the other hand, it should encourage teams to go for first downs more on fourth-and-one situations. I can only see the changes helping the game. They should open up play and add more scoring. The same, I contend, could be done in the CFL, because of its wider and longer field, if four downs were adopted. I'm sure you have all read or heard stones about famous people coming from rough parts of a city. Comedian Rodney Dangerfield tells of the guy in his neighborhood who had his trigger finger removed as part of his night club act. Well, Don Sutton is not a comedian. He pitches for the Los Angeles Dodgers, but he comes from a tough town. As Sutton tells it, his part of town, in Florida, is so tough that when you enter a bar you are checked for a weapon. If you don't have one, they get you one. Pelersen has fastest lap MADRID (AP) Ronnie Peterson of Sweden, in a John Player special, Friday turned in the fastest lap on the twisting Jarama circuit in trials for Sunday's Spanish grand prix which counts toward the world driving championship. His average speed was 97 miles an hour. Second fastest was Nicky Lauda of Austria, in a Ferrari 312-B at 96.6 mph. Clay Regazzoni of Switzer- land, leading the standings for the championship with 10 points from three races, drove his Ferrari 312-B around the circuit at 96 mph. New Zealander Dennis Hulme escaped unhurt after his McLaren Texaco skidded on a spot of oil and hit a protective wall in a bend. The car hit an official of the race who is now in hospital in critical condition.

(AP) Buddy Allin pulled away from the most select field in golf with a three-under-par 69 and pushed his lead to four strokes Friday in the second round of the Tournament of Championa. Allin, still insisting he can't play on a level with the giants of the game, put together a two-round total of 135, nine under par for two trips over the tard La Costa Country Club course. That put him well in front of veterans Miler Barber and Gene Littler, tied for second. Barber had a 70 and Littler a 69 for 139. Littler previously won this tournament three times in succession. John Mahaffey and John Schroed'er followed at 140. Schroeder had a 69, Mahaffey another 70. Lanny Wadkins, who trailed Allin by a single shot at the end of the first round, dropped back with a 74-141. His problems were nothing, however, compared with Lee Trevin's. Trevino, who as late as Wednesday predicted he'd win by six strokes, had the highest round of the day, a 78, and is last in the 25-man field at 153. Jacklaus, defending champion, struggled to a 71 and a 143 total, eight strokes back. "I played awful, Nicklaus said. "I hit the driver all over the lot." Allin continued to insist he's not on a level with the great players he'.s leading. "I've beat 'em he said, "but realistically, I can't expect to do it very often." Johnny Miller a four- time winner this season, got back to par with a 69. Bill Casper had it six under par for ttte day. Tom Weikopf took a 74. Knights may move again WILMINGTON, DE.
