He won't pose with the Vince Lombard! Trophy because of superstition and if he needs anything else to holher him, Joe Kapp's nround. The two ghosts of Sunc'i Bowls past are here to haunt him as his Minnesota Vikings get ready ic face Pittsburgh Steelers in Sunday's National Football League Super Bowl championship match. The Minnesota coaeh, a two- time loser in these gaudy spectacles, gave an indication Friday of ills uptight posture hy refusing Lo pose for pic- tures with the Lombardi Trophy, emblematic' of the National Football League championship. The reason? "I did that he said. "1 picked il up five years ago and f don't to do it again." Grant, former coach of Winnipeg Blue Bombers of the Canadian Football league, ob- viously saw something mystical in touching the trophy in hncansn thf Vikings lost 23-7 to Kansas City Chiefs. He didn't say anything about last year, when he didn't touch the tro- LETHBRIDGE FISH GAME ASSOCIATION announces FLY TYING CLASSES to begin SUNDAY, JAN, 19-2 P.M.

Another ghost ul the past presented itself to Grant on Quite a year for Anderson CINCINNATI (AP) Quar- terback Ken Anderson of Cin- cinnati Bengals broke eight team records and tied two oth- ers on his way lo winning the National Football League passing title in 1974, the club announced Friday. Anderson, who turns 26 next month, registered the second highest passing percentage in NFL history, completing 64.9 per cent of his attempts. The records included most yards total offence, 371, most passing yards in a game, 352; most yards passing in a season, best passing percentage. 64.9; most passes completed in a season, 213, and most consecutive passes completed, 16, achieved in Iwo games. the- eve of pro lootball's biggest, game. Kapp, who truarlerbacked the Vikings in that loss to Kansas City five years ago, was making news again. Kapp, who has since become the pivotal figure in one of the sport's most far- i caching legal decisions, was the major topic Friday when NFL commissioner Pete Rozelle conducted his annual pre-game news conference. Several years ago, Kapp re- fused to sign an NFL contract, calling it illegal, and sued the league. Last month, a San Francisco judge ruled in his favor. Anil Kozelle says the league has begun what will be a lengthy appeal process. Far from the news cunlerence and from the Kapp decision, another Minnesota quarterback was hard at work with his team-males. Fran Tarkenton, who brought the phrase "scrambling" into the NFL lexicon, worked out in a raindrenched. wind-swept Tulane Stadium, which became the Super Bowl site when construction of the Louisiana Superdome fell behind schedule. The weather, however, not expected to be a factor in the game. The rain was ex- pected lo subside today and the game time prediction was lor clear or partly cloudy skies with temperatures in the high The kickofl is set for 3 p.m., EST. What is expected lo be a fac- tor, though, is the probable absence of Dwight White, Pittsburgh's big defensive end and one of the driving forces ol the Sutlers' front four which led the NFL in quarter- back sacks with 52. While was in hospital lor four days with a viral infec- tion, released Thursday, then readmitted Friday morning. He is listed as doubtful for the game, giving reserve lineman Steve Furness only his second slart of the year. The oddsmakers think that slaying away from the silver- ware won't help Grant and his Vikings. They've been three- point underdogs to the Steelers almost since Ihe day the two teams qualified lor this game. There's a difference of a man riding on Sunday's game.
