?Paul Wahlberg, Houston Golf Association president, announcing his organization is receiving applications for two four-year college scholarships: "What we're really looking for is another Arnold Palmer who makes straight A's and whose parents are real poor."

? John Madden, Oakland Raider coach: "When the NFL teams meet the AFL in interleague play this year, I predict some high-scoring, lopsided games. It takes years for pro teams to know one another."

?John Luginbuhl, head basketball coach at Kiser High School in Dayton, on why he decided to resign: "Our varsity won 15 games in those seven years and lost 119, our reserves were 13-110 and our freshmen were 9-83. Overall, the program was 37-312. I thought maybe somebody else could do better."
