The Clarendon Press, October 18, Page 6 t Hit or Miss by DAVID EVERMAN Another flae weekend has passed for Texas footbalf--one that made Darrel Royal ill, made Bill Peterson feel fired--not fired up, just fired, and will most likely make Tom Landry start calling plays again. The game (using the term loosely) that happened Saturday at the Cotton Bowl would have done my heart good had I seen it, but I went to a Cotton Festival Parade at about the middle of the second quarter, so I only saw the first five or six Oklahoma touchdowns (Just kidding, folks Honest). OU's passing attack was. great, and surprised you and me (and in all probability shocked Steve Davis more than a little bit). , And the Cowboys. Gadsf But you have to admit that when the Cowboys mess something up, they do it in a grand style that is all their ownS. All the defense but a cornerback and a free safety played great, and all but one man oI offense played well. I am waiting for next Sunday's game against the Giants to see if Craig Morton gets his job back. If Roger Dodger does less than super-duper, Tom Landry will start shuttling tight ends again. And if Staubach does like he did Sunday, my man Morton will end up under center again and everything will be peachy-dandy. If Morton doesn't get the reins, maybe Landry will make Stanbach quit passing so much, since Roger obviously cannot see a receiver in time to stay out from under a defensive end. 1 ain't saying nothing about the Oilers. Except of course, for the fact that they seem to have a stranglehold on last place in the AFC Central Division. The Arabs are on the high horse again, thinking that because their countries happen to be placed over three-fourth of the world's oil deposits they can attack smaller nations with impunity. Regardless of the fact that the smaller nation they a' tacked is whipping all the Bedouins, and could probably do just fine if left alone. Take Syria...please. (With apologies to Henny Youngman.) Syria decided to jump on the Israelis, who at the time were having troubles with Egypt and Co., and Israel turned around, beat the stuffings out of the Syrian army, and now is about fifteen or twenty miles from the Syrian capitol. Hoo-ray for Golds, hoo-ray for Golda ..... Anyway, the Arabs have evidently decided that they can force the United-States into leaving Israel alone by threatening to cut offour oil. Pish, I say. I hate to tell these riders of the camels that our Middle East ally will get American aid as long as there is an America to give aid...or had better, anyway. Atlanta, Georgia, seems to be having its troubles as of late. A black and a white are running against each other for mayorl and everything was nice and polite until the black guy started leading in the polls, and then something started to hit the fan. Now the white guy is yelling and screaming that half of Atlanta will leave town if a black mayor is elected. That's a threat??? Clareadon College is opening its season with a scrimmage Saturday against Cameron State College of Lawton, Oklahoma. I am an alumnus (of sorts) of Cameron, and besides, Cameron won its conference litt year and only the fact: that they were not accredited kept them from going to the nationals, so we all can guess who I amgoing to be rooting for. You're wrongl I won't be rooting for anybody, since basketball never turned me on too much in the first place. (Anyway, I'll just yell for CC, and everybody can give the benefit of a doubt.) A federal Crime Commission is getting lenient on us again. They recommended that no sentences of more than five years be given un/ess to muderers, professional criminals and pemisten dangerous offenders. Wow, man, that's beginning to sound a bit liberal, ain't it? Besides, if you don't send people to prison, you will cut down on the recidivism rate (What a word[). I bet you thought I was saying something really bad there, didn't you? All ear gentle readers should be thankful for a favor thrown their way Sunday afternoon and throw a curse at the fashion of wearing one's pants cuff dragging thq floor. Our ,very own photographer, 'while descending the steps to an apartment building the other day, stepped on his pants cuff and came but a hair's breadth from taking twenty steps in one big tumble and landing fiat on his head. Our reading public had better be thankful for that, because if he had gone you would not be seeing "Press Photo by Richard Allen" under the pictures but "Hastily Sketched by David Everman." l Explorer Post to meet Explorer pest No. 33 will meet tonight at 7 p.m. at the Farmers State Bank.
