Tampa May Be Without Best Point Kicker TAMPA tfl--The University of Tampa may be without: its best extra point kicker? Milt Green, in the season opener 'against Mexico City University there Saturday. The little reserve halfback ran into a guy wire while limbering up before yesterday's xvorkout and received a broken nose and a slight concussion. He was to be released from' the hospital today but probably won't be in shape to play Saturday.
