?A. N. Jergens, business manager of the Church of the Redeemer in Cincinnati, when the Sunday collection the morning after the Kentucky Derby yielded three winning pari-mutuel tickets on Dust Commander: "That was one of the best Sunday offerings we've had in some time."
? Lance Rentzel, Dallas Cowboys flanker, on problems confronting the country: "Too many politicians stay in office. Instead of doing what is right, they want to do what will keep them in office. Naturally I believe in athletics in college, but I believe the basic purpose of universities is education. There doesn't seem to be much of that being dispensed these days."
?Bob Hackett, Columbia University football player, on why members of the football team drafted and signed a petition to support a students' war-protest strike: "It's an attempt to dispel President Nixon's image that athletes are all part of his famous 'silent majority.' I'm a moderate, I believe in the system, and I'm putting my faith in Congress, but I wouldn't mind helping a peace candidate this summer. I've never done anything like that before, but I think it's time for people to stop sitting on their rears."
