U.S. cross-country racers are accus¬
tomed to performing in isolation, but on
the first day of the Anchorage event they
were surprised to find nearly 3,000 cheer¬
ing Alaskans scattered along the trees and
trails of Russian Jack Springs Park to
watch the relay races. “It was like racing
in Scandinavia,” enthused John Bower,
director of the U.S. nordic program.

of Betsy Haines and sisters-in-law Lynn
VonderHeide and Alison Spencer, the

The unfamiliar advantage of perform¬

set by the fact that the field of entrants
was unusually small, a journey to Alaska
being so long and costly. Also, three of

the Redskins the following week. Most of the
Cowboys felt it was a bad decision, and a rusty
Staubach confirmed that by playing poorly in
a 26-3 loss. Landry didn’t make the right de¬
cision for the Dallas Cowboys that day. But
the issue of who was going to be quarterback
in Dallas was settled forever. Morton asked to
be traded, and in 1974, after forcing the Cow¬
boys’ hand by signing with the World Football
League for 1975, he was exiled to the New
York Giants.
Morton’s predicament in Dallas was hardly
helped by his life-style. In addition to his abil¬
ity, Staubach was simply too much Landry’s
type of person to be denied the No. 1 job. Com¬
pared to Meredith, Morton was a dedicated
football player, but compared to Staubach he
deserved his nickname—“The Prince of Green¬
ville Avenue.” a popular strip of nightspots in
Dallas.
That was the “old" Morton. The “new" Mor¬
ton has settled quietly in Denver with his bride,
and has “accepted Christ into my life." The re¬
formed Morton also plays for a reformed coach.
