?Dave Maurer, football coach at Wittenberg ( Ohio) University, after sitting for four hours at a football banquet next to Ted Bell, Ohio's No. 1 high school player, sought by Southern California, Notre Dame and Ohio State: "Wittenberg is on his recruiting list; we're 223rd."

? Stan Musial, expressing his pleasure at still being connected with baseball: "I have a darn good job with the Cardinals, but please don't ask me what I do."

? Bobby Clarke, Philadelphia Flyers hockey star, noticing Charley Young, the Philadelphia Eagles' rookie tight end, at a banquet: "When I look at Charley Young, all I can think is that if I was his size playing my sport, I wouldn't have to take my teeth out and put 'em in my pocket before I play."
