ST. LOUIS - The St. Louis
Cardinals, who faltered badly last
season after twp straight pennant-
winning years, already have a
new loop for 1970.

honors with Atlanta prior to the

just before the 1969 season start-
ed. Ted Simmons, a highly re-
garded youngster, becomes the
backup catcher.
Hague, succeeding Torre at first
base, played 40 games with the
Cards and hit .170.
The Cardinals ended the sea-
son in fourth place in the Na-
tional League's Eastern Division,
and one of the club's outstanding
shortcomings was inability to get
the run-scoring hit or long fly
ball with men on base.
"We wanted someone who could
help with runs and power produc-
tion," Devine said. "Richie Allen
was the best available hitter of
this type-perhaps the only avail-
able hitter of this type."
Schoendienst, asked about Al-
len's reputation as a difficult
player to handle, said Allen would

header in New York this summer,

runs and batted .288.
Allen was overjoyed at the news
of the trade.
"I'm going to go out to St.
Louis and get myself settled down,
not worry about anything but
baseball," he said.
"I'll get a place somewhere even
if it's a room in the YMCA, and
concentrateon baseball. I want to
be on a pennant winner and this
may be it."
The trade, however, had hardly
cooled off before the 32-year-old
Flood, one of baseball's top de-
fensive outfielders and a consis-
tent hitter, announced he has re-
tired from baseball.
Asked how Flood's decision af-
fects the seven-player trade, a
Cardinals' spokesman said: "once
the trade is made, it still goes.
The Phillies might throw it into
the hands of the Commissioner.
We're out of it."

To .Purdue coach Jack Mollen-
kopf, the most significant event in
American history was nothing like
a Revolutionary War battle, or a
famous treaty, or even the decla-
ration of the Bill of Rights. {
But this momentous historical
event did involve the U.S. Army,
and the Fighting Irish of Notre
Dame, surprisingly enough. The
big moment occurred in a gridiron
clash long ago when Notre Dame's
Gus Dorias flipped a short toss to
Knute Rockne, and the forward
pass was born.
IN 1969, Mollenkopf's senior
quarterback, Mike Phipps, has
thrown 83 times and completed 51
for a .614 percentage in three
games. He has run up a total of
928 yards and his ten touchdown

touchdowns while posting Phis
leading mark at 1046 yards. It
looks as if the Boilermaker has a
head start on surpassing in onel
year his two-year total offense
production of over 3000 yards.
STILL, WHILE the Purdue sig-
nalcaller may be the country's
best, he certainly does not do
anything alone. For one thing, his
offensive line provides him with
great protection.
Mollenkopf said, "Notre Dame
tried to get at Phipps a lot and
Stanford blitzed about a fourth of
the time. I think we're pretty well
set up though to take care of the
blitz." Tackle Paul DeNuccio an-
chors the front line.
Since Phipps has time to throw,
he can carefully consider which
one of his talented receivers pre-

sophomore, but definitely has not,
looked like it. Last Saturday he
caught several passes for good
gains and one touchdown. Greg'
Fenner starts at tight end, and
setback John Bullock is the man
who took LeRoy Keyes place .
Bullock has done a lot, though,
to help Purdue followers forget
about Keyes. The junior snared
two touchdown tosses against
also grabbed two scoring passes.
He and Bell are the receivers
Phipps usually looks for first.
Though the passing attack has
been highly successful, the run-
ning game still is not up to Mol-
lenkopf's expectations. B e f o r e
Stanford, the team had 498 yards
and five scores in two games.
Randy Cooper led with 211, but
Phipps was second with 125.
"Phipps has good size at 6-3,
203 pounds, and excellent speed
for a quarterback," Mollenkopf
commented. "It helps when every-
body has dropped back to cover
the pass."
Compared to the offense, the
defense has been less than spec-
tacular in giving up athree-game
total of 84 points. Still, Mollen-
kopf is not ready to panic. He at-
tributed the trouble to "our pro-
type defense. We haven't been able
to adjust to the kind ofoffenses
we've been running against."
"WE HELD Notre Dame to two
touchdowns, and one of those
came late in the game, because
we stopped their running game."
The defense has permitted only
one touchdown via the ground
route so far.
The pass defense, on the other
hand, has been relatively porous,
giving up eight scores and 721
yards. Backs like Tim Foley and
Don Webster are fast and expe-
rienced, though, and Mollenkopf
feels it is only a matter of time
before they come around. Going
against Stanford, however, where
Phipps was not intercepted, the
secondary was tied with the op-
position in stolen aerials with
three apiece.
The defensive front, which in-
cludes All-Big Ten choices, Billy
McKoy (227) and Bill Yanchar
(238), averages about 235 pounds,
and the offensive interior line
about 225. This relatively good
size, especially considering that
only two other starters, defensive
back Sam Carter (175) and flanker
Brown (177), are under 200.

Despite their heft, Mollenkopf
is satisfied with his players' over-
all speed and quickness.
MOST OF THE team is healthy
except for John Bullock who has
not been running on his injured
ankle so far this week, though
he is expected to play.
Certainly t h e Boilermakers
would not miss him too badly as
long as Phipps is in there.
Phipps' accomplishments have
helped power Purdue to three wins
in a row this season and an eighth
ranking nationally. Before Stan-
ford, Purdue first edged TCU 42-
35, the same team Ohio State
annhilated 62-0, and then defeat-
ed Notre Dame relatively easily
. LAST WEEK, Phipps was locked
into a hot passing duel with Stan-
ford's Jim Plunkett. While Plun-
kett was throwing for 355 yards

and four touchdowns, Phipps set
school records with a 28 for 39
completion rate, including 12 in
a row late in the game, 429 yards,
and five touchdowns.
Of course, Phipps' final scoring
pass came with 3:03 left to draw
Purdue within one, 35-34, of Stan-
ford. He then found ;end Greg
Fenner on his knees between a
horde of Indian defenders for the
victory margin.
Mollenkopf later commented on
the winning 36-35 conversion try:

but in " a game of this kind you
play to win. It might have been
different if it was a conference

was his 232 aerial yards in the

Dear Editor,
In yesterday's paper, some misinformed, unscrupulous, or totally
demented person worte (sic) an article calculated to mislead and mis-
direct the masses of people who read the daily libel printed in your
The second rate squamish team, recently renamed the daily,
libels and drafted into playing football, is in act (sic) a pseudo-
revolutionary front of the corrupt establishment. These Quislings1
have continually and unsuccessfully attempted to discredit the much
misrepresented crusaders ot (sic) the UAC MUGGERS.
These attempts, often taking the form of a tragically humorous
encounter between the Herculean MUGGERS and the cowering
libels. On the few occasions that the libels have shown up, they suf-
fered such massive defeats, that the intervals between games have5
run up to ten years.
Although it is true that, this year, the libels have gotten some
players form (sic) the local little league teams, this added strength
will be insufficient to combat the beefy roster of the MUGGERS. This!
year's quarterback, Bill "The Hun" Harris, has been known to spare1
up to 25 per cent of the linemen who attempt to tackle him. Offensive
end, Wally Syromberg (there once was a UAC president named Wally
Stromberg), of the fleet feet, has upon occasion been seen by mem-i
bers of the opposing team. On defense, most of the members of thel
team are like George "Hulk" Ladner, who is rumored to have been
chiseled out of a granite quarry.
If, by some unbelievable working of fate, the libels show up Fri-
day, the MUGGERS will show, once and for all, their undeniable
superiority on the football field.

and fair-mindedness. The above cowardly mugger, however, was photo-
graphed at a uac practice belaboring this unusual form of the end sweep.)
