Dallas Cowboys must start to win THE ASSOCIATED PRESS The National Football League season still has a long way to go but it is getting late for Dallas Cowboys. The Cowboys, defending Na- tional Conference East titlists, have dropped three straight games, their longest losing streak since 1965, and are tied for last place with New York Giants with a 1-3 record. Dallas is at St. Louis Sunday against the Cardinals, longtime also-rans who are off to their best start since 1966 with a 4-0 record. The Cards are first in the division, three games ahead of the Cowboys. In other Sunday games, Buf- falo is at Baltimore, Cincin- nati at Cleveland, New England at New York Jets, Pittsburgh at Kansas City, Oakland at San Diego, Houston at Minnesota, Miami at Washington, New Orleans at Denver, Chicago at At- lanta, New York Giants at Philadelphia, and Los Angeles Rams meet Green Bay Packers at Milwaukee. San. Francisco '49ers visit Detroit Lions Monday night. St. Louis leads the NFC in points scored and fewest points allowed. The Cardinals have scored 11 "touchdowns this season and seven of them have been on plays covering 56 yards or longer. Quarterback Jim Hart's long throws to wide receiver Mel Gray and the running of Terry Metcalf have been the main weapons in the St. Louis arsenal. On the bright side for Dallas, running'back Calvin Hill is expected to be at full strength following a series of injuries and the Cowboys have beaten St. Louis six straight times. Buffalo Bills, with their lethal Joe Ferguson-to-Ahmad Rashad pass-catch battery, Baltimore Colts who are being shuffled around as new coach Joe Thomas looks for a winning formula. New England Patriots, off to their best start since 1964 at 4-0, lead the league in points scored. The Jets will be mak- ing their first home appearance of the season. Kansas City Chiefs again will go with quarterback Mike Livingston in place of Len Dawson against Pittsburgh Steelers. Quarterback Ken Stabler leads Oakland Raiders against San Diego Chargers whose rookie runner Don Woods will be after his third straight 100- yard game. Houston' is the only NFL club which has never won an inter-conference game and they figure to maintain that record against Minnesota Vikings, 4-0, who have won 13 straight at home. Aging Sonny Jurgensen re- places Bill Kilmer at quarter- back for Washington in hopes of improving the offence against Miami. Los Angeles will be trying for its sixth straight triumph over Green Bay. The Packers 'have given up more points than any other NFC team. Philadelphia hasn't won four straight since 1966 but can do it Sunday by beating the Giants who will go with lefty Jim Del Gaizo at quarterback in place of Norm Snead. California, the unanimqus choice to again finish last, shut out Atlanta Flames 3-0 Friday night. The Seals open- ed the season Wednesday with a tie against St. Louis Blues. The showing gave the Seals the division lead with three points, one ahead of Toronto Maple Leafs and Buffalo Sabres and three up on the winless Boston Bruins. But the Seals are idle today while New York Rangers are at Toronto, Kansas City Scouts at New York Islanders, Buffalo at Philadelphia Flyers, Los Angeles Kings at Montreal Canadiens, Washington Capitals at Minnesota North Stars, Detroit Red Wings at Pitt- sburgh and St. Louis at Van- couver.

Gary Simmons, 30, a NHL rookie making his first start in goal for the Seals, handled 24 shots for the shutout The Letbbridge native who played for Phoenix of the Western Hockey League last season had to stop only three shots in the first period. It was a goalie's battle until the middle of the third period when Ron Huston beat Atlanta netminder Phil Myre.

He was probably the greatest shot control artist in the history of the game, but is hardly remembered today. Did you know that in the entire history of big league baseball since 1900, there have been only two nine-inning games in which a team scored a run every inning you'd think it would have happened more often than that, but that's all. The Cards achieved this feat in a game against the Cubs.in 1964, and the only other big league game in which one team scored in every inning was back in 1923 when the Giants did it to the Phils. all the big league baseball teams in history, which one won the most games in one season? It was the 1906 Cubs who won 116 games, and no other big league team has ever topped that in one year.
