This is the last of Jerry Seeman's 16 years as an NFL game official. Next year he will succeed Art McNally, 65, as the league's chief umpire. And when he moves to New York, Seeman, 54, will take along a big glass cookie jar full of screws--tiny ones, oversized ones, aluminum ones, brass screws, iron screws, even one shining copper screw. "It's been our favorite conversation piece," Seeman's wife, Marilyn, said recently at their home near Minneapolis.

Jerry Seeman, the veteran NFL referee who after 16 years will take over next year as director of the league's 107 officials, isn't known for being involved in many controversial plays. So the teams "don't really have a book on (him)," Ram Coach John Robinson said. "And that probably speaks well for him. It's generally assumed around the league that he was a good choice. "In the (Ram) games he's worked, you can see that he knows football. He knows what's going on."

The NFL's annual meeting, which will begin today in Kona, Hawaii, will be used as a forum for resolving differences between coaches and game officials, according to members of both groups. At a preliminary conference with league administrators, "the coaches asked for more consistency in officiating," NFL Vice President Joe Browne said the other day. Jerry Seeman, the NFL's new director of officiating, fired back: "What we need is more consistency in the rules."

Jack Gosch made a hole in one on the 10th hole at the Sunrise Country Club earlier this week, then he made another one on the next hole. Gosch, 74, used a driver to ace the 204-yard, par-three 10th hole. He followed that by hitting an eight-iron into the hole on the 135-yard 11th at the executive course. "I've never gotten more congratulations for anything in my life," Gosch said Thursday, three days after the feat.

Robert Bailey's 103-yard punt return for a touchdown against the Saints on Sunday should have been negated by a penalty because players had come off the sidelines onto the field, The Times-Picayune of New Orleans quoted a supervisor of officials as saying "Both of the teams were out there illegally," Leo Miles told The Times-Picayune. He watched the game as the league's official observer in the Superdome press box.

The new National Football League rule allowing an official in the press box to overrule the officials on the field held up the game between the Rams and the San Diego Chargers for six minutes late in the third quarter at Anaheim Stadium Saturday night. After San Diego tight end Pete Holohan caught an eight-yard pass from Mark Herrmann, Ram cornerback Jerry Gray stripped the ball loose, and safety Nolan Cromwell picked it up and returned it 13 yards to the Charger 31-yard line.
