THE OTTAWA HERALD Wednesday, October 11, 1961 Atchison Ottawa's Homecoming Foe Atchison High gridsters, who broke into the winning circle last week with an upset victory over Highland Park, will be the Ottawa High Cyclones' Homecoming game foes Friday night. Atchison lost earlier games to Lawrence, Junction City and a St. Joseph, Mo., team. Cyclone Coach Harold Wallace has had his boys working on pass defense this week, following their tumble last Friday night to a passing Rosedale team. The Cyclones also have been trying to iron out. some of the kinks in their ball-handling which have set them back in their three losses to date. Starting Guard Gary Jones, who suffered a knee injury in the Rosedale game, won't play against Atchison and may be out for the season. Otherwise, the Cyclones are sound ohvsicallv. Coach Wallace's starting offensive lineup includes Ronn ; e Showalter and Roger Ferguson, ends; Alan Rvbolt and Jim Wollen. tackles; Honie Meiers and Charles Minckley. guards; John Mack, center; Roy Dunn, quarterback; Ryder Cup Course Mickey Reed, fullback; Doug Schultz, left half, and either Paul Stephens or Robert Gray at right half. Offensively, Coach Wallace is trying to perfect plays that will use Reed's powerful running through the center and to utilize the sweep arid passes. Kickoff time Friday will be 7:30 p.m. in Cook Field at Ottawa University. Is Tough LYTHAM ST. ANNE'S, England (AP) — America's Ryder Cup golfers agreed today that, come wind or rain or both, this royal links is a true and tough test for the biennial match against Britain Friday and Saturday. The Yanks reached this unanimous opinion after playing their first practice rounds over the Lytham St. Anne's course in a drizzling rain, but without the wind that can turn the layout into 6,635 yards of treachery. "It's a real tight course," said Gene Littler, U.S. Open champion, after playing his first 18 holes over British soil. "You have to hit the ball straight. If you don't—well, brother you're in trouble." The Ryder Cup battle—14th in the series and won 10 times by the United States—is certain to draw huge crowds to this vacation coastline in England's northwest. Upwards of 10,000 people are expected to swarm over the seaH side links on each day of the match—eight foursomes on Friday and 16 singles on Saturday, all over 18 holes, morning and afternoon, under the new revised Ryder Cup system. Hockey Season Opens Tonight BOSTON (AP) - The Boston Bruins and New York Rangers open the National Hockey League season tonight at Boston Garden with both teams showing new faces. The Boston club wound up last season in the cellar; the Rangers in fifth place. The Bruins have six rookies on their roster. New York has four. Boston made a last-minute addition to its roster by calling up Tom Williams of the Kingston, Ont, Frontenacs, a Bruins farm team in the Eastern Professional League. He will remain with the Bruins for their first two games, at least, said General Manager Lynn Patrick. Plaudits For Big 8 Players By SKIPPER PATRICK Associated Press Sports Writer An end and a center from Colorado and a tackle from Missouri drew top plaudits from the AP's All-America Board for District 5 for their play in Saturday's football games. Ken Blair, Colorado's 190-pound junior end, caught touchdown passes of 58 and 52 yards from Gale Weidner in a three-touchdown fourth quarter that beat Kansas 20-19. Walt Klinker, 200-pound senior, played a tremendous game at center for the Buffaloes against Kansas. Handicapped by injuries his first two seasons, Klinker appears to have come into his own. Ed Blaine, Missouri's 217-pound senior tackle from Farmington, Mo., had his third fine game of the season in Missouri's come- from-behind 14-14 tie with California. Blaine was credited with 11 tackles, seven of them unassisted, and blocked well on offense. Elvin Basham, Kansas guard, was credited with an outstanding job against Colorado, especially by the Colorado players. Klinker described the 195-pound senior from Kansas City as one of the toughest linemen he's played against. For the second straight week, there was praise for Bob Brown, Nebraska's 251 pound sophomore tackle, and Billy White, Oklahoma's 202 pound senior. Brown was a crushing defender in the Cornhuskers' 24-0 victory over Kansas State. White played well in-.Oklahoma's 15-21 loss to Iowa State. Top linemen for Iowa State in the Cyclones' third victory of the season were Jon Spelman, 180, senior center, and Dan Celoni, 210, senior guard. Oklahoma State got good play from tackle Frank Parker, 242, and guard Gary Curtsinger, 240, both seniors, in the Cowboys' 26-0 victory over Tulsa. Meager Pickings In Baseball Draft By JOE REICHLER Associated Press Sports Writer CINCINNATI, Ohio (AP) - At a cost of nearly two million dol- ars each, Houston and New York lave assembled teams today that probably will battle it out for ninth place in 1962 in the now expanded 10-team National League. The only hope for the Colts and Mets to finish among the first eight is to improve the club through trades, purchases or the sudden emergence of thus far unheralded bonus youngsters. Despite the seemingly meager pickings in Tuesday's regular and special drafts of players from the eight established National League NEW BIRD BOSS — Lee MacPhail, president of Baltimore Orioles, tries baseball cap on Billy Hitchcock who is holding one-year contract he signed to manage the Orioles next year. Contract reportedly calls for a $30,000 salary. Hitchcock succeeds Paul Richards who resigned to become general manager of Houston in the expanded National League. Kentucky Braces For Kansas State LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - For the first time this season, Kentucky will not go up against an accomplished passer when it meets Kansas State Saturday night. For three successive weeks, Kentucky has faced top notch quarterbacks who have pierced its pass defenses freely. Miami's George Mira, Mississippi's Doug Elmore and Auburn's Bobby Hunt gave Kentucky plenty of problems. But Larry Corrigan, Kansas State's sophomore quarterback, is injured and not expected to play Saturday night. Kansas State's coach, Doug Weaver, says his other quarterbacks have only a few minutes' offensive experience. Kentucky's coach, Blanton Collier, began working Tuesday on defensive strategy for Kansas State. Collier says his squad's worst enemy could be complacency and he still expects Kansas State to come to Lexington all fired up. Gloom descended over Lexington after losses to the Huricanes and Rebels but it dissipated on the strength of Kentucky's 14-12 upset of Auburn. "Kansas State defeated two good teams, Indiana and Air Force Academy, and played a good losing game against NebraS' ka," Collier said. They could be very tough come Saturday." Kansas State's forte in the first three games has been its offense, Collier said. Besides Corrigan, he praised the running of Joe Searles and Spencer Puls. Kentucky will have a definite weight advantage in the line. Sophomore halfback Darrell Cox who cracked a bone in his right hand against Auburn, is expected to be ready for punting duties Saturday. What's Wrong With Johnny? Bobby Layne Nursing Injury PITTSBURGH (AP) - An injury has sidelined Bobby Layne of the Pittsburgh Steelers, but the veteran quarterback vows he'll be back in the lineup before the end of the season. Coach. Buddy Parker feels Layne is through for the year. Layne played only a brief time against Los Angeles and last week he did not dress for the Philadelphia game. He is suffering from hematoma on the left side of his body. He- matoma is a tumor or swelling containing blood.

Enemy defenders have picked off nine of his passes and his completion percentage has dropped to 49.4. Unitas also is far behind his pace of last year when he threw for 3,099 yards, an NFL record. What's wrong? Coach Weeb Ewbank, who indicated Tuesday he might bench Unitas and start Lamar McHan Sunday against the Bears in Chicago, frankly admits he doesn't know for sure. Unitas has become a new kind of mystery quarterback. Ewbank said Unitas' sub-par performance so far stems partly from a sore finger. "I looked at his finger and it's swollen. It's sore, there's no question about it," said the Coll coach. Speculation that Unitas has been rushed more this season than in past years was discounted by Ewbank. "We figure that in last Sunday's game, there were JOHNNY UNITAS only four plays on which there was por pass protection anc that's average for any game," hi said. Against the Green Bay Pack ers, who stunned the Colts 45-7 Unitas clicked on only 11 of 24 passes. Five were intercepted. A reticent player who won't of fer alibis for his "off-days," Uni tas has not been much help in ex plaining his dilemma. He hasn't i even confided in Ewbank.

In Missouri, prizes will be trophies under $5 and medals, Ford's district office in Kansas City said Tuesday.

"We have a strong nucleus for a fine club for a short time," said Richards. "From now on, we ask no favors from anyone." "We went for fellows who had been top players," explained Weiss, "and we got most of them We went for young pitching and hitters tailored for the Polo Grounds. I think Houston has the edge over us in infielders while we have the edge in pitching." "I honestly feel both new clubs obtained some excellent young prospects," said National League President Warren Giles, who presided over the draft meeting, attended by officials of all National League clubs.

Martin, 538 Ottawa Smvints—I High 10-30 — Bennett, 910-543 New Coach For Patriots BOSTON (AP) — The Boston Patriots of the American Football League have fired head Coach Lou Saban, former Western Illinois University coach, and hired Mike Holovak, ex-Boston College mentor, to replace him. The Patriots' management lowered the boom suddenly Tuesday night by majority vote of the board of directors. "I didn't know about it until they phoned me," said Saban. "They had to make a change. It just hit me and that's it." Saban, 39, joined the Patriots last year, touted by the Boston club's General Manager Ed McKeever, as "the finest young coach I've seen in 15 years." His contract had one year to run. Holovak, an All-America fullback at Boston College and assistant Patriots coach, played professionally with the Chicago Bears of the National Football League. He was a PT boat skipper in World War II. "I hope it works out," Holovak said. "Needless to say it was a shocker, to get called and be told this, out of a clear blue sky." President Billy Sullivan, who said Saban was notified an hour before the public announcement, told reporters, "We simply felt that all the talent on our team had not been used."

Centropolis 6 Maryland End Top Lineman COLLEGE PARK, Md. (AP)Gary Collins is a bigger fellow than even Tom Nugent, his Maryland football coach, realized. "We had him listed as 6 foot, 3 inches until we measured him the other day and found out he's an inch and a half taller," said Nugent. At times, Collins must seem 10 feet tall to Maryland opponents. The senior end from Williamstown, Pa., has an uncanny knack for leaping above defenders and snagging touchdown passes. After he grabed one for a touchdown and another for the winning two-point conversion in last Saturday's 22-21 victory over Syracuse, Collins was picked "lineman of the week" today by The Associated Press as much for his defensive play. "He's also our punter and when the going gets tough on defense, I have to get him in there," said Nugent. "So it's hard to give him a rest and when I can, I do it on offence." For that reason, Collins' pass catching statistics aren't too impressive. He's caught only seven in Maryland's three victories. This was the second time Collins was named lineman of the week by the AP. Last season, it was for catching a game-winning pass against North Carolina, Maryland's opponent this Saturday. NEW YORK (AP) - For most of the New York Yankees, tht main business at hand today wai to sit back and wait for their fat World Series checks. Not so for Bob Turley and Luis Arroyo. Both pitchers have operations scheduled. Turley's is important. It could send him back on the firing line as one of the top Yank hurlers. Arroyo's is a cyst on his wrist. "I'm going into the hospital to have some bone chips removed from my right elbow this week," said Turley, the hero of the 1958 World Series. "If it is successful, and I sure hope it is, I'll have the entire winter to recuperate. Then maybe I can start throwing hard in the spring. This has been a tough year for me. I wouldn't want to have another one like it." Turley won only three games all season. He was sidelines with a sore arm in early May, and when it didn't come around, he was placed on the disabled list. Reliefer Arroyo was scheduled to go in the hospital with Turley for the cyst removal. But instead he's heading home for Ponce, Puerto Rico, where his youngest daughter is ailing. "My operation can wait," said Arroyo. "Right now the only thing on my mind is to see my daughter. I'll be back as soon as sh« is all right."
