ROUNDUP «, ' ,— Steve wen, who has labored long and hard to convert the New York Giants' into a T formation football team—and, incidentally, to. restore his reputation as a "modern" coach—feels he finally has achieved some results . . . Charley Conerly has learned to fake like a real T quarterback . . . in Sunday's torrid game against Washington, says Steve, Conerly faked so well on one occasion that a Redskin tackled him and then let go, figuring he didn't have the ball. . . Charlie did, and promptly stepped aside and threw o pass . . . Speaking of nifty sidestepping, watch what happens the first time a member of the boxing managers guild is offered real dough for an exclusive contract. The "guilt" has voted to ban any manager who signs an exclusive contract with a promoter, but the lads should be able to dodge that easily. Really Tall J. F. "Pop" McKale, the Arizona U. athletic director who really spins 'em when he spins a yarn, has been telling'this one about his football exploits in the old days ... Pop says when he played there were no end zones so when a ball was kicked over the goal it remained in play no matter how far it went. ... So one day an opponent kicked one which kept rolling and rolling back with McKale in pursuit. . . , Finally he grabbed the pigskin and ran more than a^quarter mile through the entire opposing team for a touchdown (probably breaking the 440- yard record enroute) . . . "And for the conversion," McKale adds, "I jumped over the goal posts." Shorts and Shells Newest football bowl promotion, the "Senior Bowl" at Jacksonville, Fla., Jan. 7, proposes to pit the Outstanding senior footballers of the Southern and Southeastern conferences against the rest of the country—and to pay the boys cash for playing. . . . Hope the lads don't forget such things as basketball, baseball and track when they're offered "perhaps a thousand dollars." .... Dick Kczmaier, who has developed into Princeton's best tailback, was the only boy who ever graduated from Maumee, Ohio, high school with a straight A record for 4 years. . . . Norris Anderson, Lincoln Star sports ed., has called Nebraska's exact point total for 3 straight football games. Better give him an A too. Stagg to 8e Honored at Celebration By BEN FRENCH SelinsrMTove, Pa., (/P)—They're planning a rousing big celebration here Oct. 22 for the "grand old man of football," who at 87 still feels he's "too young to retire." Invitations have been sent out to more than 100 of the nation's top grid coaches to join in paying homage to Amos Alonzo Stagg on his GOth consecutive year in college coaching. A testimonial dinner, torch light parade, rally and the Susquehanna.-Upsala homecoming game are scheduled in honor of the man who is considered football's greatest inventor as well as a symbol for character and sportsmanship. However, Stagg, who dislikes IN LUTHER HOMECOMING— Don Gordon of Lake Mills, quarterback and ace punter for Luther college, gets in some practice for Saturday's homecoming game at Deoorah against Valparaiso university. Gordon is playing- his 4th season of football for the Vikings. anniversaries of any kind, would rather they'd skip the entire affair. He's afraid the idea will get around that he's planning to i-e- tire. "We're not much for anniversaries in our family," he explained. "My wife and I almost forgot our 55th wedding anniversary a few months back." The former coach at the University of Chicago is looking forward to at least 5 years more in his capacity as advisory coach here at Susquehanna university, helping out his son, Alonzo, Jr. And doctors at the Geisinger hospital at nearby Danville bear him out on that. After a complete examination several weeks ago, they decided that Stagg has at least 5 years of good health ahead, barring mishaps. "I don't want to quit as long as I'm useful," Stagg said. "I am fully convinced that the pearl of greater price to me is to continue my life's purpose*of helping young men through the relationship of coaching." Stagg played h!s collegiate football under the famed Walter Camp at Yale in 1888-89. In 1887, he pitched the Eli baseball team to a 2-1 victory over the old Boston Nationals and turned down several major league offers to plan for the ministry. He has contributed, among other countless plays and formations, such famous offenses and defenses as e'nds back, halfbacks on defensive line, turtle back, fake kickoft'. double delayed pass and the sliding offensive end. In 1889, he invented the tackling dummy. Officers Named Swea City—Donald Mino has been elected president of the Grant 4-H club for the coming year.
