Hawkeye Lineman Of Week By TED MEIER ""Associated Press Sports Writer Iowa, the nation's top-ranked team in The Associated Press college football poll, opened its season last Saturday with a 28-7 victory over California. For his part in helping to beat the Bears, Sherwyn Thorson, Iowa guard, was named today as the lineman of the week by The Associated Press. A 215-pound senior, Thorson played virtually the entire game and led the Hawkeyes' forward wall in holding Cal to a net 85 yards rushing. "Thorson defended well and threw the key blocks in a couple of touchdowns runs by Wilburn Hollis," said Gus Schrader, sports editor of the Cedar Rapids, Iowa, Gazette. Gary Collins, Maryland end, was high up in the linemen voting by sports writers and broadcasters. Collins caught four passes for 57 yards, punted four times for a 40.2 average and made numerous tackles as Maryland beat Clemson. He now holds the Maryland pass yardage record with 811 yards. Other linemen cited included Dan Celoni, Iowa State guard, Paul Henley, Missouri guard, and Jerry Hillebrand, Colorado end. Wins Honor With Six Touchdowns CANYON, Tex. (AP) - Modest little Pete Pedro said Wednesday if I am back of the week it's because of my teammates." Pedro, the 5-foot-7, 160-pound Puerto Rican who created a sensation when he scored six touchdowns in sparking West Texas State to a 56-27 victory over Texas Western, was picked for the honor by The Associated Press. His coach, Joe Kerbel, said the youngster was "overcome with the thrill of the thing." "He told me that he had great blocking and that was the reason he was able to get the honor," Kerbel declared. "He was quite correct but he also did a great deal of it himself. He is the greatest running back I've ever seen in football." The youngster is only a sophomore. He came to West Texas State as a transfer from Trinidad, Colo., Junior College. His borne is in Lynn, Mass. West Texas State had won only five games in three years, three of them last season — Kerbel's first as coach. "We already have sellout crowds assured," said Kerbel. Pedro was chosen over such sta"ritfouj;''^ars as Stan Gann of Georgia Tech, Sonny Gibbs of Texas Christian, Rod Sears, of Stanford, Willie Brown of Southern California, Doug Elmore of Mississippi, Bill Swingle of Northwestern, Angelo Dabiero of Notre Dame, Dave Sarette of Syracuse and others who stood out with their play last weekend. PRACTICE MAKES PERFECT — Mike Brown, Ottawa University's place kicking end, practices his art in preparation for the game at College of Emporia Saturday night. Brown has made nine of 10 attempted extra points and booted one field goal in two trys.

Syracuse over Maryland: The Orangemen from New York could be in trouble if Ernie Davis hasn't completely recovered from his hurts.

Centropolis 6 By SKIPPER PATRICK Associated Press Sports Writer A couple of senior guards, Dan Celoni of Iowa State and Paul Henley of Missouri, are making strong bids for regional and all America recognition in the young 'ootball season. Celoni and Henley were noticed the AP's district all America Eootball board after their outstanding play in two games. The district 5 board, covering the states of Nebraska, Iowa, Missouri, Kansas, Oklahoma, North Dakota and South Dakota is composed of B. A. Bridgewater, sports editor, Tulsa World; Max Falken- stein, sportscaster and general manager of radio station WREN, Topeka, Kan.; Dick Becker, sports editor Lincoln, Neb., Journal, and Gus Schrader, sports editor, Cedar Rapids, Iowa, Gazette. Henley, a 215-pound, 6-footer from Kirkwood, Mo., has been a key in the rugged interior line work of Missouri's victories over Washington State and Minnesota. Celoni, 210 and 6 feet from Milwaukee, showed rare form in Iowa State's victories over Drake and Oklahoma State. The quick hitting guard has been impressive both on offense and defense. Sherwin Thorson, 215 pound Iowa senior guard who led the Banner Year For Field Goals NEW YORK (AP) - College football's reborn kicking specialists are at it again this season, booting field goals at a clip that will boost the record for the fourth consecutive year. The collegians, who began to put the toe back in the game when the goalposts were widened by almost 5 feet in 1959, have kicked 52 three-pointers in 123 games among major colleges so far this year. If the rate is maintained it will easily surpass last season's alltime high of 24. Meanwhiile, Northwestern has taken the initial lead in total offense with 488 yards gained in its first game while Dartmouth is the over-all defense leader with only 58 yards permitted, according to NCAA Service Bureau statistics released today. Northwestern also is No. 1 in rushing offense with 478 yards and Dartmouth tops in rushing Scores From OTTAWA BOWL 418V' N. Main Phone CH 2-9741 Shim Tl'ESDAY NIGHT 1st i A: Hairy—1 S.

(AP)-The housing shortage arising from assignment of the 100th Division (training) to nearby Ft. Chaffee is acute, Maj. Blame A. Guthrie, Jr., division information officer said Tuesday. He said more than 500 men of the division have found homes in the Fort Smith area, but 404 housing units are needed for men whose families have not yet arrived. The 100th, a Kentucky outfit, was the first training contingent to move into reactivated Ft. Chaffee. It will instruct recruits who will begin arriving at Chaffee Oct. 19. Hawkeyes' line in holding California to a net 85 yards rushing last Saturday also won praise. "Thorson defended well and threw key blocks in a couple of touchdown runs by Wilbur Hollis," reported Schrader. There were other exceptional jobs by linemen last week. Jerry Hillebrand, 240 pound senior end at Colorado, figured in the Buffaloes' 24-0 victory over Oklahoma State. Hillebrand, of Davenport, Iowa, caught a 40-yard touchdown pass and kicked a 54- yard field goal. He was great on defense too.
