Lethbridge Herald {Newspaper} - 1974-01-05,Lethbridge, Alberta Vikings^ ranking veteran senses deeper feelings BLOOMINGTON, Minn. (AP) — Grady Aiderman, ranking veteran of Minnesota Vikings, senses a deeper feeling of intensity in himself and his teannmates in preparation for this year’s Super Bowl than before the 1970 game against Kansas City Chiefs. Alderman, tlie last of the Vikings selected in the 1961 expansion draft, will be completing his 14th National Football League season Jan. 13 - when the Vikings play Miami Dolphins in the championship final at Houston. The 6-foot-2, 245 - pound offensive tacltle is one of 18 players on Minnesota’s 40-man roster who played in the 23-7 loss to the Chiefs. "The emotion was there the last time,” said Alderman. “But last time, we had only one week between games and we did not have enough time to prepare for that game. "Kansas City used a 5-2 defence, and we’d never seen it before. This time, we’ll have an extra week. The layoff has got to help guys who are banged up. Also, we’re more familiar with Miami. I think we will be more intense in ouf preparation than we were the last lime.” The Vikings have met the Dolphins three times in the last two years, losing 19-7 in a 1972 exhibition and 16-14 in the 1972 regular season, and'winning 20-17 in the final seconds of a 1973 exhibition game. Alderman notes this will be a considerably different Viking team from the one beaten in the 1970 game at New Orleans. “We relied more on defence in those days," said Alderman, who played one season with EVetroit Lions before joining the Vikings. “Our offence is more capable than ever. We have the attitude that we can score from anywhere on the Golfers committed PEBBLE BEACH. Calif. (AP) — Leading professional golfers, who have Wen free to choose where they play, were ordered Friday to compete in three specific tournaments this year. The designated tournaments are the Colonial Open, May 1619 at Fort Worth, Tex.; the Kemper Op«n, May 30-June 2 at Charlotte, N.C., and the World Open, Sept. 12-15, at Pinehurst, N.C. The announcement was made by Joe Dey, Professional Golfers’ Association commissioner. The three designated tournaments are the forerunners of a contemplated 10-event slate, in which the game’s leading players will be required to play in any specific event. The players ywho must play in those tournaments are: United States Open, PGA and Masters champions from the last five years, the leading money winners from the last five years, the 1Q73 British Open champion, the 1973 Ryder Cup team members and the top 30 money winners from 1973. That, of course, comprises all the game’s great names, including Jack Nlcklaus, Arnold Palmer, Billy Casper, Tom Weiskopf, Bruc^ Cramp-ton, Gary Player and Lee Trevino. “A wilful violation without a valid escuse would be a very serious offence,” Dey said. The penalty would be determined by the commissioner and could be a fine or suspension of playing rights. The selection of those three events camc under a recently approved regulation of the Toumannent Players Division of the PGA. , field.” The Vikings have 11 starters, both offensively and defensively, who did not start in the 1970 game.

What he lacks in size, he makes up in technique. McCord’s six consecutive birdies help earn win PEBBLE BEACH, Calif.
