If the pro football season ends with a strike next week, this will be remembered as the game of the year. It wasn't much of a contest, but it was some game. There were two long touchdown passes, a 94-yard punt return, a 70-yard interception return, a blocked punt for a touchdown and some storied, heavy hitting.

Ron Morris is leaning back in a booth at the fancy palm-graced Bel Age Hotel sipping coffee and chatting about possible book and movie deals, just like any another Hollywood type. Of course, most people might not recognize Morris in spiffy gray suit and tie. But put him back in his working duds--giant gray parka trimmed with fake fur, and think of him standing on an ice floe near Pt. Barrow, Alaska, and then the recognition might dawn.

Three young California gray whales trapped in ice were battered and bleeding and appeared to be weakening Monday, as a huge military helicopter prepared to tow an ice-breaking barge hundreds of miles and attempt to free them. Rescue workers were using chain saws to keep open breathing holes in the 6-inch-thick Arctic Ocean ice, but freezing temperatures made the work difficult. The whales became trapped nearly two weeks ago, while migrating south to warmer waters.
