Tlie is conducted by "We're, miming ortoii defends himself plained it lo me.'1 But a up with the training, the of the statistics shows lhat studying and everything, just as ivhilc Morton's were good.

Now, 51 weeks after lie quart- erbacked the Cowbuy.; to a Na- tional Conference championship. Craig Morton sits in the shad- ows. More precisely, he stands in them, conferring with coach Tom Landry and watching the action from the bench while Roger Staubacb does the quart- erbacking. ''We're winning, aren't we'.'" Morton said as lie and the rest of the Cowboys went through a j Torkout in prrpadation for their j National Football League NFC title rematch with San Fran- cisco '43ers Sunday at Texas Stadium. "That's the important thing." The personable., j seven-year veteran, who lost the No. 1 job to Staubach midway in the season, expressed mixed emotions about his back-up role. "Sure I want: lo said Morton, who directed the Cow- boys to a 17-10 triumph .iver San Francisco a year ago and came close to doing the same in the Super Bowl he-fore Balti- more Colts eked out a 10-13 de- cision. "Any man who be didn't want to play wouldn't he true to liis profession." said. "And I wouldn't be telling tne truth if I didn't say I want to be in there awful bad. "But let's face it; Roger's doing the job. He's brought us up to where we are today, so j naturally we've got to go with I him." TRIED EXPERIMENT It was on Oct. 31. after the Cowboys had lost to Chicago Bears, that Morton became No. 2. Prior to that, Dallas didn't have a No. 1. so Landry decided to experiment against the Bears, shuttling h i s quarter- backs in and out on alternate plays. After that debacle, calh'ng the plays from the bench as he had all with Staubach. The result was a 16-13 victory over St. Louis Cardinals, followed by seven more victo- ries in succession, including last Saturday's 2012 romp against Minnesota Vikings in the NFC semi-final. "I don't really know why 1 lost the Morton said. "Coach Landry just never ex- plained it lo me.' o" bach's were better "Now I just stay in shape. you never know what might happen. Sharman wants to beat Seattle i By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Los Angeles Lasers are alone at I he top of the pro basketball world, but coach Bill Sharman keeps looking for new moun- tains to climb. "Seattle is the team we have to beat." the coach said Tues- day night after the Lakers had lengthened the National Basket- ball Association's longest-ever winning streak to 29 games with a 105-87 victory over Buffalo Braves. The SuperEcnics, Los Ange- les' opponent in Seattle Thursday night, have been the victims three limes during the streak, but Harman reminded his listeners: "They are the only team to heat us on the road this year and they are No. 2 in our division." What he didn't mention was that Seattle trails the Lakers by 14 games in the Pacific Divi- sion. Blue Bombers keep coaches WINNIPEG (CP) Winnipeg Blue Bombers announced Tues- day the re-hiring of assistant coaches Dave Smith and Jim Stanley for the 1972 season. Both coaches will be starting their second year with the Western Football Confer e n c e club. Stanley, the defensive coach, came fo the Blue Bombers in 1971 from the U.S. Naval Aca- demy while Smith, who hand- led the offence, last coached at Southern Methodist University in Texas. Head coach Jim Spavilal, who took the Bombers to the WFC playoffs for the first lime in five years lasl season, has al- ready signed a contract for the 1972 season. The Lakers' fantastic streak is overshadowing some other burgeoning winning skeins. Bos- ton Celtics, down by 16 points in the third period, rallied to make it nine in a row with a 120-116 triumph over Philadelphia '76ers. KN1CKS EXTEND STREAK New York Km'cks ran their string lo seven, pulling away from Detroit in the second quarter and trouncing the Pis- tons 119-110. And Chicago's streak reached six as the Bulls turned back Milwaukee Bucks 116-105 with Bob Rule getting 27 points in the second half and outscoring Kareeni Jabhar 41- 35. Elsewhere, Baltimore Bullets walloped Cincinnati Royals 119- 87 and Cleveland Cavaliers nipped Portland Trailblazers 112-111. In the ABA, it was Virginia 129 Carolina 126; Indiana 111 the Floridians 104 and Denver 14, Pittsburgh 104. The expansion Braves gave the Lakers an argument most of the way and might have won but for 30 turnovers. A rash of Buffalo ball-handling mistakes helped the Lakers on a 25-6 blitz in the final 10 minutes of the first half, and another series of errors by the Braves kept the Los Angeles lead safe after it had dwindled to 89-82 with minutes to play. Elmorc Smith, Buffalo's sev- en-foot dookie, floated eight-to- 10-foot hooks over Lakes centre Wilt Chamberlain all night. Smith scored 17 points in Uie first quarter, when the Braves took a 34-27 lead, and wound up mth 32 points and 20 rebounds, both game highs. Jerry led Hie Lakes with 24 points and Chamberlain added 23. The Canadian Press among sports writers and broadcast- ers across the country. Jenkins, a winner in each of the last five has-e- bal! seasors, won over Phil Esposito of hockey's Boston Bruins, and world-record har- ness-racing driver Herve Fi- lion. Electors were asked lo give first, second and third choices and ballots were graded 3-2-1 respectively. Jenkins came through with 232 points to 187 for Esposito, highest single-season scorer in the history of the NHL, and 150 for Filion, the Angers, Quo., driver with a career record of more than vic- tories. JONAS RATED FOURTH Den Jonas, although a United Stales citizen, came fouith on Uie strength of his performance as quarterback of Winnipeg Blue Bombers of the Western Football Confer- ence. George Athans, Kelowna, B.C.. aihlete now studying in Montreal, was close behind Jonas. Atlians won tile world water-skiing championship in Spain last September. Jenkins is Hie firsl Cana- dian lo receive a major base- ball award, winning Ihe Cy Young Award for 1971. A 6- foot-5, 205-pounder, Jenkins compiled a '24-13 record for the Cub-5, the most victories in the National League. In the five seasons starting with 1967, he won 20, 20, 21, 22 and 24 games. He averaged better than 313 innings -and 261 strikeouts over those five sea- sons. His over-all record for six-plus seasons in the majors is 115-81. Esposito's name crowds the NHL record books. His 76 goals in 78 games during the 1970-71 season con- stitute the record; so does his mark of 152 points in one sea- son. His 25 power-play goals last year is the record for that category. Esposito centred the most productive line of any season, between right-winger Ken Hodge and Wayne Cash- man, which accounted for 140 goals. Their 336 points is also a one-line, one-season record. Native Sous win exhibition Lethbridge Y's men's Native Sons came up with their best performance of the season Mon- day and edged Calgary Melton Realtors 3-2 in an exhibition game at Henderson Lake Ice Centre. Lyle Claanpitt. Larry Mar- chuk and Neil Kristjanson ac- counted for the Native Sons' markers. Clint Armstrong and Craig Hughes scored for Calgary. while California Golden Seals visit Montreal Canadiens, Phila- delphia Flyers are in New York against the high-flying Rangers, Chicago Black Hawks entertain Boston Bruins, Detroit Red Wings play the Sabres at Buf- falo and Vancouver Canucks take on the Kings in Los Ange- les. It's been years since the slick Ijcaf centre scored three goals in one game, but he's tl.e first to admit Tuesday night's production was anything but luck. Tenacious forechecking and playmaking has been Ullman's forte with Toronto, and it was evident in his play against Pitts- burgh. He was on the spot to cash in on Dems Dupere's rebound to open the scoring in Ihe first pe- riod, tipped in Jim Dorey's blast from the blueline in the second, then slid in Paul Hen- derson's passout to close the scoring with 18 seconds left in the game. ACTED IN SELF-DEFENCE "The second goal actually was in admitted the Provost, Alta., native after the game. "I saw the puck com- ing and was trying to get out of the way. "It hit me and deflected into the net" behind goaltcnder Les Binkley. Ullman's third score of the night was his 430th career goal. Keferee Wally Harris handed out few penalties in the rugged, wide-open game witnessed by fans, a record weekday crowd in Pittsburgh. Elsewhere in the NHL Tues- day, Detroit pared its roster, farming out veteran wingers Ah McDonald and Brian Conacher, McDonald, 35, was assigned to Wings' Tidewater club in the American League while Con- acher, 30-year-old son of former NHL star Lionel Conacher, went to Fort Worth Wings of the Cen- tral League. Tonight's big game sends two of the hottest clubs in the NHL into a showdown at Chicago Stadium. Boston has lost only one of its last 19 games, and Chicago is on an eight-game win streak- longest in the NHL this season. Tlie Bruins have had little luck in Chicago recently, losing their last five games at the Stadium. Boston coach Tom Johnson named veteran goalie Ed John- ston to face the Hawks in a bid to get the Bruins off to a good start on their seven-game road trip. Tlie game also brings a mat- chup of two of the current shooters in the centre Phil Esposito, the leader with 28 goals, and Chicago winger Bobby Hull, who brought his goal production to 25 with 10 in the last seven games.
