The Dallas Cowboys were active on two fronts Thursday, releasing wide receiver Tony Hill and announcing that Tom Landry will continue as the team's coach for the next three seasons. Hill, a 10-year National Football League veteran, "had weight problems," Landry said, adding that the 31-year-old player "just didn't fire up as everyone else did." The Cowboys said that Hill, who failed to show up for three weigh-ins this summer, is about 230 pounds, more than 30 over his assigned weight.

On his knees, his head aching, his body shaking, his stomach churning, Golden Richards, in a cold sweat, would hover in his bathroom over the toilet in desperate search. He had to do something. There were no more painkillers--no more Percodan pills--in the medicine cabinet or under the bed or in whatever hole he had chosen as the latest hiding place for his drugs. His demons demanded immediate satisfaction. He had consumed the last of his stash.

Terrell Owens is a force again. Perhaps the Dallas Cowboys are too. Bottled up all season, and his frustration starting to show, Owens broke out with seven catches for 213 yards to help the Cowboys beat the San Francisco 49ers 35-22 and continue what's looking like the start of a playoff push. Owens' total was the second-most of his career and tied the fourth-best in Cowboys history.

Quarterback Danny White celebrated his return to the lineup Sunday by scoring a touchdown and hitting Tony Hill with a 35-yard touchdown pass to give the Dallas Cowboys a 24-10 victory over the Atlanta Falcons. White, who sat out Dallas' 16-14 loss to Philadelphia last week with sore ribs, came out throwing against the single-coverage in the Atlanta secondary and completed 27 of 42 passes for 362 yards. But White also showed some rust.

With a 7-3 record, the University of Arizona now has gone five straight years with winning seasons, something that hadn't happened in Tucson in almost 50 years. The last time it happened was in 1933-37 under Coach Gerald (Tex) Oliver. Arizona boosters were so appreciative that after the 1937 season they presented Oliver with a bonus check of $1,000. That was pretty good money in those Depression days. In Los Angeles, for instance, you could buy a seven-room house for $12,500.

Of the 12 receivers on their training camp roster, the Dallas Cowboys will keep four, perhaps five. Obviously, unless there is a drastic change in their performance, they will keep four incumbents: Tony Hill, Kirk Phillips, Mike Renfro and Duriel Harris. Among the eight vying for the No. 5 spot is Leon (Speedy) Gonzalez. Gonzalez, a 5-10, 160-pound flash from Bethune Cookman, is the Cowboys' eighth-round draft choice. Gonzalez, a Jacksonville, Fla., native, possesses 4.

Danny White's four touchdown passes, including two to wide receiver Tony Hill, carved up the Dallas Cowboys' favorite Thanksgiving Day turkeys, the St. Louis Cardinals. Thursday's 35-17 victory put Dallas a half-game ahead of the New York Giants in the National Conference East. Dallas Coach Tom Landry said it was one of the Cowboys' better offensive performances. "We had a good game," he said. "The Cardinals are always tough for us. They played us a tough first half."
