Simpson ins court test
By The Associated Press
f SYRACUSE - Eight black football players suspended from
the Syracuse University team during a racially tinged dispute
earlier this month asked yesterday for reinstatement.
The players relented to a university edict and signed a state-
nent ,agreeing to abide b y all team regulations, but there was
no immediate word from university officials or Coach Ben Schwartz-
walder about whether their suspensions would be lifted.
The eight were suspended for the season three weeks ago after
refusing to sign an agreement to abide by all team regulations. The
players had been protesting alleged discrimination by the univer-'
sity and athletic staff against black football players.
The eight include the team's leading rusher in 1969, Al Newton,
and Greg Allen, second in rushing to Newton and the team's
leading punt returner.
- They and the six other blacks agreed yesterday to accept the
university code for athletes, to have a cooperative attitude in drills
and other assignments and to play any position assigned by the

Perennial nonconference foot-
ball powers Notre Dame and Penn
State, will be at it once again in
their fight to gain the honor as
the top independent in the nation.
According to this week's polls, the
Irish and Nittany Lions are ranked
sixth and seventh, respectively,
and by the end of their first con-
test, chances are good that they
will move up.
The Irish will be led into their
season opener against Northwest-
ern by their fine senior quarter-
back, Joe Theismann. In his career
at Notre Dame, Theismann has
netted 2,898 yards total offense,,
while completing 57 per cent of his
passes for 27 touchdowns. At the
completion of this season, he could
well surpass the total offense mark
set by Terry Hanratty in 1968.
But at least part of Theismann's
passing success must be attributed
to his fine split end, Tom Gate-
wood, who has put all of Jim Sey-
mour's receiving records in jeop-
ardy. Last year, he caught 47
passes for 855 yards and nine
touchdowns. Head coach Ara Par-
seghian feels that the Theismann-
to-Gatewood combination will be
"Every coach has to face the ,in-
jury problem each year, but it
seems. that some years tPe situ-
ation is more critical than others,
and this is just one of those
Returning fullback, Bill Barz,
has been plagued by a pulled ham-
string and has not been able to
participate in the workouts. Andy
Huff, a junior, has replaced Barz,
but also has suffered minor in-
juries. The whole backfield pic-
ture is not in total ruin however, as
Denny Allen, the team's leading
rusher, has remained healthy and
should be dangerous enough to
keep any opposing defense honest.
The defense has also been some-
what crippled by injuries, but by
tomorrow, Parseghian hopes some
of his injured will be ready for
The line has been hit hardest by
injuries. Defensive ends, Walt
Patulski, who had a great soph-
omore year, Bob Neidert and Fred
Swendson have all missed practice
because of various ailments and
their status for the opener is
THE FRONT FOUR also suf-
fered a blow when tackle Mike
Kadish tore some knee ligaments,
placing him out of action indefi-
nitely. His spot has been filled by
reserve Mike Zikas, but he can not
match the potency of Kadish.
The linebacking situation is no
better with returning regular,
John Raterman out 'with a knee
injury. His replacement will be
junior Rich Thomann. Co-captain
Tim Kelly was also injured, but he
should be ready for Northwestern.
The only aspect of the defense
that is totally intact is the second-
ary, led by All-America candidates
Clarence Ellis and Ralph Step-
aniak. Parseghian has been pleased
with their performance in spring
practice. Parseghian also moved
Mike Crotty from the offense to
man the safety position.
FOR ARA PARSEGHIAN and
his team, it will be a question of
time, to see if those now with in-
juries will be able to start the sea-
son. Even if only half of them
make it, that should give the Irish
the personnel fox another strong
Coach Joe Paterno and his Nit-
tany Lions have a number of
streaks on the line this season. For
one, they have won three Lambert
trophies in a row, and have a great
chance to win for an unprecedent-
ed fourth straight time. In addi-
tion, Penn State, has won 22
games in a row, going 11-0 for the
past two years.
The Lions were hit heavily by
graduation, 1 o s i n g quarterback
Chuck Burkhart, running back
Charlie Pittman, linebacker Den-
nis Onkotz and-, tackles Steve
nSmear and Mike Reid.
However, Paterno feels he has
the material to negate the effects
of these setbacks.
Fighting for Burkhart's job will
be sophomore John Hufnagle, jun-
ior Bob Parsons and senior Mike
Cooper. Paterno is still uncertain
who will get the call, but Mike
Cooper seems to have the best
In the backfield, will be junior
fullback Franco Harris, who is a
possible all-American candidate.
He was the Lion's second leading
rusher last year with 643 yards
gained-for an average of over five
yards a carry. He also is a fine
receiver and caught 12 passes for
189 yards last season.
TO SOLIDIFY the revamped
defense, Joe Paterno has Gary
Hull and Jack Ham at linebackers.
He is possibly Penn State's strong-
est candidate for All-American
honors. One of his unique special-
ties is blocking punts, with four
in the last two seasons. Paterno
rates him as one of the finest line-
backers in the nation.
