This clip made possible by the donations from our generous group of "Fuzzketeers" during the January 2012 2" Quad Transfer Fundraiser.

Here's Part 3 of the early edition of The Sunday News on WBBM Channel 2, anchored by Bob Wallace. Featuring Bruce Roberts and the voices of George Herman, Dan Kelly and Jim Gordon. Includes:

Bob reading or introducing the following items:

- Senate Majority Leader Mike Mansfield attacks Nixon administration's "RailPAC" proposal for saving passenger train service as a "fraud" and "outrage" (it was in 1971 that Amtrak was first created)

- A clip of Transportation Secretary John Volpe's appearance on this day's edition of Face the Nation is shown, in which he fielded tough questions about RailPACs, namely about cities that were excluded; one of the questioning reporters seen at the start of the clip is misidentified as Volpe, before that lower-third comes back when Volpe speaks; one of the voices heard questioning Volpe is CBS News correspondent George Herman

Bob then introduces Bruce Roberts who brings the sports scores and, in some cases, accompanying video clips (with sports scores set in Franklin Gothic Extra Condensed over Roberts' left shoulder, and in Univers 55 over video clips):

- In NBA Playoffs, Chicago Bulls beat Los Angeles Lakers 106-98 (LA leads series 2-1), and Baltimore Bullets beat Philadelphia 76ers 111-103 (Earl "The Pearl" Monroe had 29 points)

- In hockey, Detroit Red Wings beat Toronto Maple Leafs 2-1, with clips from CBS's Game of the Week shown, and color commentary by Dan Kelly and Jim Gordon; also, Vancouver Canucks leading California Golden Seals (which after 1977 moved to Cleveland and became the Barons) 6-1 in 2nd period (Vancouver ultimately won 11-5)

- In exhibition baseball, Philadelphia Phillies defeated Chicago White Sox 7-6 (despite an eighth-inning homer by Walter Williams); Chicago Cubs routed Cleveland Indians 15-4

- In golf, Gary Player wins second straight PGA tournament, with Lee Trevino -2 and Arnold Palmer finishing -9; clips of the game are shown, including Bruce Devlin putting behind a tree (falling to 10th)

- In auto racing, Mario Andretti wins the first 100-mile heat of the Questor Grand Prix at Ontario, Calif. - $300,000 in prize money

Bob returns to the news:

- A fire at an Arlington Heights junior high school causes an estimated $150,000 in damage; firemen from four surrounding suburbs helped put out the fire which destroyed the roof of the auditorium and cafeteria; very likely arson was the cause.
