Cornwall Confident Of Notching First Win Over Beavers Tonight A •mall, scrappy and aggres- •ive Cornwall High School foot- btU team lift* the 19« gridiron curtain tonight when they host the Beavers of Lebanon Catholic High School it Lebanon High School Stadium in a Tri- County Football League contest. After three weeks of practice Coach Jim Bright unveil* hi* ninth Miner eleven with an optimistic view on the coming season. The Cornwall eleven will •Iso be running from « pro-type offensive system. The Miners were 1-7-1 last year and winless in Tri-County League competition (in five games) but Bright has high hopes hla team will be able to start the season on a winning note tonight and register its .first conference win since 1961.

Bright believe* his team has a good chance of up- jetting the Norbie Danr coached eleven tonight. If that should happen Bright said the Miners could go on to their best gridiron season. The Miners enter the game In good physical condition, and Bright has been well pleased with the progress of hi* eleven over the past weeks, Bright said, "These kids will make mistake* and we expect a few but, one thing is certain, they will go all out every minute of the game. They're a good defensive team. We are still not as sharp with our offensive timing as we'd like to be but, with a new system being instituted it will take t few game* until the timing is perfected." with Ed Sebastian or Barry Auman at left end, but whoever start*, the other will *ee plenty of action. Ed Kercher, a veteran, will get the call at left ackle, Larry DePufh, another etterman, will (tart at left guard and junior Paul Boyer will start at center. Veteran Bill Carpenter will open at right guard with letterman Doug Boyer at the right tackle slot. Paul Vranesic, one of the nine lettermen on the team, will et the call at right end. The only definite starling back s senior Roger Grimes who last ear carried most of the Miner workload from his fullback spot. He will be found there again tonight. The quarterback spot could be illed by anyone of three players, Bob Engle, a senior, Tim Longnecker, another senior, and junior lork Fr'ankhouser. The probable itarter will be Engle but Bright ould switch just before the kickoff to either Longnecker or Frank- louser.

GET GRID INSTRUCTIONS—The Naval Academy's head football coach Wayne Hardin gives a few pointers to team captain Tom Lynch (51) and star quarterback Roger Staubach (12) during a practice session at Annapolis, Md., Thursday diners as he and Danny and sophomore Terry Light have »en battling for that position. In the right half or flanker spot ,arry Light holds a slight edge over Walt Pruitt and Terry Light and could start in that postiion. iowever, Frank Gill is also in strong contention for the starting berth and could be a surprise starter for the Miners. The backfield battle has given Bright a chance to smile and it could be that the Miners have come up with an excellent array of backs that will add depth and strength to the Cornwall eleven's offensive attack. The majority of lettermen on the Miner eleven are on the forward wall. They have shown in pre-season workouts that they are capable of performing their duties. With sharp, crisp blocking they could open the holes that will get their backs out and away and Bright is looking forward to having his linemen do just that tonight. The Miners in eight previous seasons have come up with a 23-41-4 record, they are looking for their 24th win tonight. Hershey Grid Rivals Open Season Tonight In Cocoa Bean Game Scholastic football bows In for Sharp on the ends; Al Ciociola at the 1963 season at the Hershey Stadium tonight when the Milton Hershey School Spartans an d the Hershey High School Trojans meet in the 21st annual Cocoa Bean Bowl. The Cocoa Bean series dates back to 1943, and was inaugurated by the Hershey Rotary Club as a project for the benefit of the Derry Township Memorial Field playground equipment fund, and has been continued ever since on an annual basis. Spartans Lead Series The Hilltop Spartans hold the upper hand by a wide margin with a record of 13 wins against only four losses and three ties tackle; Bob Thompson and Jack Kotchey as outside backs; Milt Purcell and Clark Hazlett in the inside back berths, and Jim Dunlop as safety man. Banta Names Team Coach Sterling Banta has vir- ually decided upon his starting eleven as the Trojans open their defense of their Capital Area Con- erence crown in this annual rivalry renewal. He expects to open with at least ive seniors, four juniors, and one sophomore on the field, and one starting berth is still in doubt. Dennis Tulli, a junior, will be over the ball at center, and will Pro Grid Pr«vi«w Cleveland Browns To Open New Era Under Coach Blanton Collier Shoulder Bothers Palmer On Eve Of Golf World Series AKRON, Ohio <AP> — Arnold Palmer's aching shoulder threatened today to take the edge off his showdown meeting with burly Jack Nicklaus, placid Julius Boros and solemn Bob Charles in the $75,000 World Series of Golf this Cornwall stands a good chance of cracking into the win 'column for the first time in iU six-year history of me series with Catholic High when the two schools kick off the local scholastic gridiron season tonight in the Lebanon High School Stadium. That's the imprecsion one gets when listening to Catholic coach Norbie Dans'sob, "We don't have anyone that looks good. Everyttme somebody looks half decent, he gets hurt." With that comment, It would appear that Catholic High fans are in for a long and gruesome season. It might be remembered, however, that Danz .claimed he had his worse crop in his then fourth year as head coach prior to the start of the 1962 campaign. His troops determinedly went on to record a second successive 8-2 season. In fact, the personable mentor, now beginning his fifth year at the helm, has never encountered a losing season nor, for that matter, even a fair to middlin' year. A 7-2-1 log in his rookie season of 1959 has been the weakest record compiled by a Danz-coached LCHS team. This season does present a severe test to Danz and his aides, "Buck" Vogel, Fred Porrino and trainer Ben Wasilewski. Although seven lettermen are back for another go round, nine key members of last year's squad are gone. while Buchanio (6-4, 210) was a starting end during the latter segment of the campaign. The tackles will be John Rish, a 190- pound 'senior from Hershey, and senior Bob Luciotti, a 210-pound transplanted center. Luciotti has been displaying new-found zest in pre-season workouts and has undergone the line switch in fine style. The guard posts will be filled by a pair of juniors, Pat Mangan and Frank Galassi. Galassi, who will also handle the placekicking chores, goes 195 pounds, while Mangan is on the light side for a guard at 150. Steve Horney, a promising 155-pound sophomore, has inherited Luciotti's center job. Charley Allwein started part of the '62 season at quarterback and will be calling signals tonight. The senior now stands 5-10 and weighs 152. Diminutive John Feeser (5-4, 142) and injury - prone Frank Grabusky (5-10, 155),, the team co-captains, will open at the halfbacks. Feeser is the most experienced ball- carrier on the squad. Grabusky, who missed most of last season due to recurring ailments, is at the moment bothered by a bad knee. Junior Bill Uhrich Open Season At Ephraf a Tonight Palmyra High School travels to Ephrata tonight -to lift the lid on their 26th football season. The Palms will be after their ninth victory in the Palmyra- Ephrata series that dates back to 1952. To date the series stands at 8-2-1 with the Palms holding (5-8, 170), a lettertnan who saw with the wind. Danz must find replacements weekend. "It's worse than ever," an obviously worried Palmer said Thursday after wincing with pain after his first practice round over the 7,165-yard Firestone Country for end John Hartman, tackles Dick Bonfanti and Lew Egbert, guards Paul Grill and Mike Andruzak, backs Jack Schneider, Len Lawson and Bob Martalus, and linebacker Joe Grabusky. Several of those boys emerged as "sleepers" last year and the,hope is that some unexpected material blossoms this time around. Danz will play the first few games by ear as he admits, "I've no idea what's going to happen tonight." CLEVELAND, Ohio (UP!) - A new era gets under way for the Cleveland Browns this year as a new head man —Blanton Collier —tries his hand to come up with a winner. Collier, a 56-year-old student of football, took over as head coach in January, succeeding Paul Brown, under whose guidance the Browns roared to four Ail-American Conference crowns and six consecutive Eastern Division titles in the National Football League. The Browns won their .last title in 1957. Brown will be missing from the field because he was booted upstairs to a vice presidency by youthful owner Art Modell. The biggest problem facing Collier is coming up with a top-notch running mate for the incompara- able Jim Brown, who has gained 7,459 yards in six seasons. Brown has been the "Mr. Big" of the Browns' ground game, ripping to five consecutive league troit Lion, Ernie Green, a second' year man, and rookie Frank Baker, * 215-pounder from Toledo University, ate battling for the halfback slot. With the opening game but 10 day* away, it looks as if Frank Ryan will be the starting quarterback. Ryan started slowly this spring but caught fire on the West Coast to push Jim Ninow- ski into the back-up job. and last year handed the Trojans their only setback in CAC play in this rivalry series game New Coach Bows The Spartans will be opening the season under a new coach Bob Klingler, in renewing thei long series with their crosstown rivals, and will be anxious to get their new head mentor started on the right foot. Plant Platoon System Coach Klingler plan* a veritable platoon system for his season opener and his local area coaching debut, and will start an offensive unit of Jim Hannawalt and Bill Simmons on the flanks; Joe Loughlin and John Waggett in the tackle slots; Dick Keener and Ken Waite on the guard posts, and Ted Christian over the ball up front. Matt Kline will direct the team from the quarterback post, and Nels Riggin, Larry Garner and Scott Ruch will round out the backfield when the Spartans have the ball. Keener and Loughlin are also listed for defensive duty, be flanked by two senior guards, Mike Zimmerman, one of the four returning lettermen on the squad, and Tom Parks. Dtck D'Anna, another holdover letterman and a senior, will fill one tackle slot, and Ben Miller, a promising sophomore, will get the starting call at the other tackle position.

"I'm not even thinking^of withdrawing or anything like that," he added, "but I won't play again until Saturday unless it gets a lot better. You can.just put your hand on it and feel it crack." That Palmer is suffering from a bursitis of the right shoul'der was revealed Thursday as he began his first warmup for the television spectacular that rewards the winner with $50,000. Golf's No. 1 money winner disclosed rhe pain first appeared while 'he was in California last Opening Lineups Offensively, the Beavers will line up with Dave Scibelli and "Choc" Buchanio, both seniors at the ends. Scibelli (5-l'Ott, 180) played some defensive backfield the early portion of last season, mostly defensive duty last year! b the starting fullback. The Beavers' basic 6-2-2-1 defensive alignment will stack up with Buchanio and Uhrich on the ends, Luciotti and sophomore Bill Tice at the tackles, and Horney and Mangan at the guards. Grabusky and junior Paul Eggert are the linebackers, with Scibelli and the Rakow brothers, Dave, a soph, and Bill, in the secondary. Tice is a 5-8, 230-pounder. Eggert was a regular linebacker with last year's club and also saw sporadic service as a running back. Bill Rakow, a junior, saw ample defensive action last year. Both Rakows have been hampered by pulled muscles. This contest will also act as a Tri-County Conference lidlifter for both clubs. Cornwall is the host team for this year's scrap in the unbroken series. The Beavers were the victors in the previous five engagements, but the series, like any contest between neighbor- the edge. Last year Ephrata dealt the Palms an opening 21-13 defeat and Coach Ken Bowman, starting- his sixth year at the helm of the Palmyra gridiron ship, Is taking a more experienced club into this 1963 opener. Bowman says of his eleven, "The spirit is good and we are better adjusted due to more experience. We hope for fewer mistakes in tonight's game than we committed in last season 1 ! opener against Ephrata." Bowman continued, "We have no major injuries and if this club can get off tonight on the right side of the ledger, we'll be tough for the rest of the season, "I am well pleased with the progress of the team over the past two weeks and if they continue to show continued improvement we'll have a representative club.

Twenty-seven exhibitions over the past four weeks have drawn more than 914,000 paying fans and the million mart' should be surpassed handily in the closing six attractions, which include a doubleheader and the Hall of Fame game. Minnesota's young Vikings and the St. Louis Cardinals open the NFL weekend tonight at St. Louis. On Saturday afternoon, the New York Giants and the Philadelphia Eagles pl'ay at Princeton, and four more games are slated for Saturday nlghWthe Dallas Cowboys against the Detroit Lions and me Baltimore Colts against the Chicago Bears in the doubleheader at New Orleans; the Green Bay Packers against the Washington Redskins at Cedar Rapids, Iowa; and the San Francisco 4!)ers against the Rams at Los Angeles. The Cleveland Browns and Pitts- burirh Steeleri meet in the Hall at Fame came Sunday at Canton, Ohio, , The new era also will see the quarterback doing most of the play-calling, although Collier plans to send in plays when the situation warrants it. Collier plans to employ a wide- open offense, including such things as a double-wing, men in motion and one-side. He football can't be played conservatively." Makes Strong Bid Clifton McNeil of Grambling College is making a strong bid to win a berth as a pass receiver, the strongest point on the team. McNeil, a skinny-a p p e a r i n g youngster, possesses blazing speed and is sure-handed. Other youngsters who have a good chance of making the team as receivers are rookie Tom Hutchinson, the Browns' No. 1 choice last December, and Gary Collins, former Maryland standout, now in his second year. Rich Kreitling, former Big Ten star, Ray Renfro, a 12-year man, and Johnny Brewer also are standouts of the Browns' catching corps. Collier does not plan to do much tinkering with the defensive unit, which yielded only 257 points — best in the Eastern Division last year. He does, how ever, have to come up with a re placement for Don Fleming, who died in a construction mishap. Team To Real Collier believes the defending champion New York Giants are the "team to beat," although he expects strong title battles from Pittsburgh, Washington, St. Louis and Dallas. Keener as a tackle and Loughlin as a middle linebacker.

Also slated for opening game duty are Jerry Kegerreis, Jim Eckenrode and Gary Hess, a trio of juniors, and Harry Susi, a sophomore, as backs.

Senior Frank Hetrick and junior Dale Umberger will start at the guard positions and senior Larry Anderson will be at center.
