(GREEN BAY) - A year ago the Green Bay Packers employed a bruising ground attack to sweep to the Western Division championship in the National Football League. Now Bart Starr is keeping opposing defenses honest with pinpoint passing. Starr, reaching a peak as a top-flight pro quarterback in his sixth season with Green Bay, directed the Packers to a 30-10 victory over the San Francisco 49ers before a packed crowd of 38,669 Sunday at newly-enlarged City Stadium. The former Alabama star mixed his plays with the precision-like skill of a surgeon in leading the Packers on an 81-yard march for, a touchdown in the first period. He finished by hitting end Max McGee with a perfect 21- yard scoring pass in the final quarter. The Packers went the distance the second time they had the ball to jump into a 7-0 lead. Starr had Jim Taylor and Paul Hornung hitting the line and three times caught the 49ers by surprise with passes to Ron Kramer for a total of 34 yards. Hornung finally banged into the end zone from one yard out and added the extra point. The 49ers, sparked by Abe Woodson's 49-yard return of the ensuing kickoff, tied the count before the end of the period. J.W. Lockett capped the surge by going off left guard for the final yard. Unheralded Willie Wood, a defensive specialist used on kickoff and punt returns, sent Green Bay in front to stay in the second period. Wood took a punt on the run, eluded a couple of tacklers, picked up a couple of blocks and raced 39 yards for a touchdown. Hornung, who set an NFL record by scoring 176 points a year ago, booted a 13-yard field goal to boost the Packers' advantage to 17-7. Tommy Davis then booted a 46-yarder for the 49ers before Hornung clicked on a three-point effort from the San Francisco 43 just before halftime. Hornung added a 15-yard field goal in the third period before the Packers completed the scoring on Starr's touchdown pass to McGee in the finale. With the Packers held to 124 yards by rushing, Starr hit on 11 of 16 passes for 161 yards.
