THE OTTAWA HERALD Thursday, October 12, J161 KU Favored Over I-State By WES COOK The Associated Press Coach Clay Stapleton cautionn that his Iowa State Cyclones "have got to get down off cloud nine" for their Big Eight Conference game in Lawrence Saturday with Kansas. Undefeated in three games this season, including an upset 21-15 victory over Oklahoma last week, Iowa State is still regarded as a one to two touchdown underdog against the Jayhawks. Stapleton says "Kansas is as good as any team in the Big Eight. Given a few breaks the Jayhawks would also be 3-0." Kansas was highly favored in preseason polls to have one of its best seasons with a big, fast, experienced team. However, the Jayhawks will go against Iowa State still looking for their first victory. They were upset by TCU, tied Passed For 9TDs, Scored 7 NEW YORK (AP)-Their team: are not among the top 10 in the country, but James Earl Wrigh of Memphis State and Pete Pedr of West Texas State are accounl ing for a powerful lot of scoring Wright has passed for 9 touchdowns and scored 7 others for a total of 16 in 4 games, while Pedro has tallied 12 touchdowns in 3 games. Pedro, a sophomore halfback who hails from Lynn, Mass., has two more touchdows than any player ever scored in the first three games of a major college football campaign, the NCAA Service Bureau reported today. The modern record for a full season is 24, scored in 1954 by Arizona's Art Lupino. Pedro, who has seven games to go, is the rUshing offense leader with 494 yards, supplanting Furman's Tom Campbell who has 404. • Wright, a senior quarterback from Columbus, Miss., has taken over the individual offense , from Detroit's idle Gerald Gross. 11 Wright has a total of 671 yards, 516 from passing. He has com pleted 29 of 45 passes for a .644 percentage, with no interceptions. Say Ryder Cup No Snap For U.S. LYTHAM ST. ANNE'S, Eng land (AP) — Two men who live and breathe golf dismissed th idea today that the Ryder Cup matches starting Friday will be a walkover for the Americans. They are the men who shoul know — American team captain Jerry Barber and British captai Dai Rees. , Bookies have made the Ameri cans 7-2 favorites to win the cu for the eleventh time in the two day competition. ' "The bookies must be insane, said Barber after leading his team through the second day of practic on the Royal Lytham St. Anne' course. "This match will be a even as it could be." . Rees, 48, playing in his ninth Ryder Cup, said: "Don't write us off. We were the long shots in the matches played in Britain four years ago—and we still won." "Six of that winning team will be going against the Americans this week. We have a good chance to beat anyone." y Wyoming and edged by Colo ado last Saturday. Coach Jack Mitchell hopes to ind the answer to the Kansas problems before Saturday. He escribes the situation this way: "If I were playing KU, I'd practice only three plays, the straight pass, the draw and the screen. We just can't seem to de- end them." Iowa State has three good pass rs manning the tailback spot in Stapletons single wing. Dave loppmann, the league's rushing and total offense champion from ast season, has rushed for 307 yards and completed 7 of 12 pass es for another 137 yards or a tota offense of 148 yards per game thi season. Sophomores Ozzie Clay an Dave Hoover appear to be equal ly as strong. Hoppmann was on the ailing lis and mised both the Kansas an Missouri games. Stapleton, who continues t school his team in what he term "hard-nosed" football, says Hopp mann has matured. "He ha learned the difference betwee pain and injury and will alway give a good account of himself. The Cyclone line is still sh some beef but more tha adequate through the middle, es pecially at right guard where Al America candidate Dan Celoni, 210-pound senior presides. Kansas and Missouri are the only teams in the league that have not suffered at least one de- eat at the hands of Iowa State ince Stapleton took over in 1958. Tie Stapleton teams have posted 4-6, 7-3 and 7-3 records. "You must have prestige and radition to build a football earn," says Stapleton. "We have won some and it has helped." Win Gave Cowboys A Lift But Was It High Enough? STILLWATER (AP)-The Oklahoma State Cowboys got a much needed lift from their 26-0 football victory over Tulsa last week after two defeats in Big Eight Conference play. The question this week: Will the lift carry over and enable OSU to defeat the strong Missouri team at Stillwater Saturday. Morale is high but coach Cliff Speegle is concerned also with performance. He said: "After checking the film, we feel we will have to improve our play about 30 per cent if we are to stay in the game with Missouri. We know, as does every one, Missouri is one of the fine teams in the nation." Jack Baker, assistant coach who scouted the Tigers in their 14-14 tie with California, brought back this report: "Best team I've watched this year. Excellent speed and pursuit, a mean line and good fullbacks, with no great drop in halfback speed over last year. They seemed to coast after scoring early on Cal and then had to hustle back to get the tie." The Cowboys started the week's practice sharpening up on forward passing. Speegle said he wasn't pleased with the way the team "ran our pass offense against Tulsa." Tulsa gained more passing than did Oklahoma State but OSU hardly needed the pass, with sen- Talented Texans To Meet Sooners TOP THREAT — John McAninch, Ottawa tailback, is the Braves leading ground gainer with an average of 76.2 yards a game. McAninch, whose punting average is 36.1 yards for 13 punts, has carried the ball 38 times for 305 yards. (Herald Photo) Braves Face Pass Threat In Wesleyan Gary Player Toronto Favorite ONTARIO, Calif. (AP) - Play jot under way today in the in- lUgural $20,000 Ontario Open Golf Tournament, with Masters cham- jion Gary Player generally favored to add the winner's purse o his bulging bankroll. Player is the leading money vrtnner in PGA play this year, credited with $66,290. Top prize here is $2,800. Competing against the long-hit- .ing South African star are such seasoned tournament players as Billy Maxwell, Bob Rosburg, George Bayer, Marty Furgol, Tom Nieporte, Dave Hill and Jack Fleck. The 72-hole tournament, played at the Whispering Lakes Golf Club, winds up Sunday. Par is 70 for the 6,800-yard course. Ottawa University's rugged pass defense will be in for its second workout in two weeks when the Braves take on Kansas Wesleyan at Cook Field here Saturday night. Last week it was College of Emporia's Bruce Upstill, number one passer in the Kansas Conference. This week it will be Jerry Smith, the number three passer in the conference and second behind Upstill in individual total offense. Although Smith has completed only 19 of 55 passes for 275 yards, as compared with Upstill's 44 of 83 for 622 yards, the Wesleyan star has gained 281 yards on the ground for a four-game total of 556 yards. The 200-pound sophomore quarterback also will be faced with a monumental task, that of penetrating the Ottawa defense which has given up an average of only 154 yards a game. Ottawa's defense has allowed its opponents 391 yards on the ground and 225 on the completion of 26 passes in 55 attempts. The Braves also pack a potent offense which has averaged better than 323 yards a game. The main force of the Ottawa attack has come on the ground where the Braves have gained 969 yards. Another 324 yards have been added to the 1,293 offensive yard total on 14 completed passes in 38 attempts. Ottawa, which defeated the Coyotes 39-20 last year, has a one-game edge, 13-12, in their 29- game series. Four games have ended in ties. Another victory for the KCAC champion Braves would stretch their victory streak to 15. Ottawa now is 4-0 for the season, Wesleyan is 1-3. Kick-off time is 7:30. By JACK CLARY Associated Press Sports Writer Texas, which never could win the "big one" against Oklahoma teams laden with Texans, has a talented group of stay-at-homes, ready to make the winless Soon- ers its fourth straight victim this week. The fourth-ranked Longhorns, coached by Darrell Royal who toiled so spectacularly for Oklahoma Coach Bud Wilkinson a few years back, have their most powerful team in years and plan on letting the Sooners know about it. Royal has three straight victories over his former mentor. Texas is ranked first nationally in total offense, second in rushing offense, third in scoring and seventh in rushing defense. Beside Royal, a "foreigner" from Hollis, Okla., the Longhorns have quarterback Mike Gotten from Austin, halfbacks Jimmy Saxton, from Palestine, and Jack Collins from Dallas, and fullback Ray Poage from Houston. Oklahoma's halfback Mike McClellan is a Texan from Stamford, while standout end Ronnie Payne is from Breckenridge. But by sticking close to home, Walt Alston Stays With LA LOS ANGELES (AP) - Walt Alston, quiet-spoken former school teacher, will manage the Los Angeles Dodgers again next year as they'lnoVe into their new stadium in Chavez Ravine. Dodger General Manager Buzzie Bavasi announced Wednesday night that Alston, 49, a resident of Darrtown, Ohio, will lead the Los Angeles club for the ninth consecutive season. He started in 1954 when Charlie Dressen quit because the Dodgers wouldn't give him a long-term contract. Alston has been operating on a year-to-year basis ever since and has accounted for three National League championships, two world championships, two seconds, a third, fourth and seventh place. He is the oldest manager in the National League in point of service. Says 49ers Can Be Tougher Yet SAN FRANCISCO (AP)-After shutting out his last two National Football League opponents 49-0 and 35-0, Coach Red Hickey says his San Francisco 49ers still haven't developed all of the explosive potential of his shotgun offense. The 49ers beat the Los Angeles Rams 35-0 last Sunday and clobbered the Lions at Detroit the week before that. In both games, the 49ers used the shotgun all the way, utilizing all three of their quarterbacks. There was a lot of criticism of the shotgun formation before it became so spectacularly successful. US Netters Vow To Jar Italians ROME (AP) — A determined U.S. tennis team vowed today to jar confident Italians who expect their Davis Cup squad to beat the Americans easily in the interzone final. The Americans were not predicting victory for themselves, as Italian sports writers and tennis buffs were doing for Italy. But the Americans were not conceding either. Many Italians were forecasting a 5-0 victory once play starts Friday. One was Marquis Ferrante Cavriani, a former non-playing captain of the Italian Davis Cup team and now an official of the Italian Tennis Federation. Told of the marquis's prediction, Donald Dell of Bethesda, Md., said: "If I were them, I would not bet on it." In beating Los Angeles Sunday, the 49ers had touchdown drives of 81 yards in 10 plays, 80 yards in 11 plays, 80 yards in 10 plays, 7 in 6 and 93 in 13. ures there were two reasons for the loss. "The Packers have a great team, no doubt about it," Hickey said, "but we didn't use our shot gun enough against 'em. We used the shotgun about half the time and the T the rest." Hickey had the shotgun in mind when he drafted UCLAs Bill Kilmer as his first draft choice. Kilmer is one of the three alternating quarterbacks, along with veteran John Brodie and second- year man Bobby Waters.

Dr. Sid- The Packers beat the 49ers 30-! ney Gaynor, club physician, said 10 at Green Bay, the only 49er ! Turley should be able to pitch loss this season, and Hickey fig-1 again next year.

(AP) Green Bay great Paul Hornung is happy as long as the Packers keep winning. And the versatile halfback is doing his part to assure he stays happy. No individual in the tough National Football League can be called truthfully a "one-man gang." But Hornung probably comes closest to deserving such an honor. The 25-year-old blond bomber is making a place for himself among the NFL's all-time greats with his tremendous running, pass-receiving, p 1 a c e-kicking, passing threat on the option and jarring blocks in Green Bay's bruising ground game. The 215-pound Hornung, the Packers' 1957 bonus selection after he won the Heisman Trophy as the nation's outstanding collegiate player while a senior at Notre Dame, is well on the way to his third straight NFL scoring championship. The Longhorns have racked up 1,512 yards so far. Saxton has chipped in with an average gain of 13.5 yards in the 28 times he has handled the ball. Michigan halfback Dave Raimey got a clean bill of health for the sixth-ranked Wolverines crucial Big Ten game against Michigan State, ranked No. 5. He had suffered a hip bruise against Army. The Spartans will be without alternate defensive center Mike Currie for the nationally televised game. Northwestern, which plays Minnesota, lost guard Jack Cvercko for the year because of a knee injury while Notre Dame quarterback Daryle Lamonica is nursing a bruised muscle but is expected to be ready for Southern California. Kansas halfback Curtis McClinton is out of Saturday's game against Iowa State and will be replaced by Willis Brooks. Ohio State quarterback Bill Mrukowski hurt a leg and was replaced at the No. 1 slot by John Mummey. Mack Gilchrist will do most of Missouri's fullbacking against Oklahoma State because of an injured chest suffered by Andy Russel. Texas Christian's right guard contingent has been reduced to two men by injuries while Southern Methodist guard Bob Hunt joined fullback Mike Rice and center Mike Kelsey on the sidelines with a knee injury. ior halfback Jim Dillard breaking loose for runs of 74 and 37 yards for touchdowns. OSU has two of the best passeri to come up through Oklahoma high school ranks in years. Both first and second string quarterbacks—Mike Miller and Bill Leming—are sophomores. Miller has completed 13 of 27 passing attempts and Leming has hooked up 11 of 33. Both have shown ability to run the team. The Oklahomans have a starting line that averages above 200 pounds. Senior tackle Frank Parker and senior guard Gary Cutsinger are the bulwarks. Cutsinger was a tackle his first two yean on the squad. The Backfield has a combination of speed and bucking strength. Dillard is the big man in weight (197), power and speed. Dillard was moved from fullback to halfback this year to give the Cowboys more outside speed —something they did not have in 19GO. He has carried 36 times this year, gained a net of 293 yards for an average of 8.1 yards. Oklahoma State was handicapped by injuries in its 14-7 loss to Iowa State and 24-0 beating at the hands of Colorado. The injured have recovered and—barring new hurts this week—should be, in the words of Speegle "in better physical shape than we've been in for the last two weeks." NOW SHOWING Box office opens 7 p.m. Shown 9:10 only Bob Scheffins C? Manager Of Year DETROIT (AP)-Bob Scheffing, a weather • beaten ex - catcher who'd been fired by the Chicago Cubs, became manager of the Detroit Tigers before the 1961 season knowing he faced an obstacle course. He took over one of baseball's most mixed-up clubs, guided it to second place and Wednesday was named the American League's manager of the year in The Associated Press' annual poll. "I'm grateful to the fellows on the team," Scheffing said when he learned of the honor on arrival at his home in Scottsdale, Ariz., Wednesday night. "They deserve the award, not me." Scheffing said he was very happy " about the award. He added that he expected the Tigers to have about the same club next | season as they had Uiis year. | Attention Hunters SHOTGUN SHELLS All Sizes and Gauges at DISCOUNT PRICES See Us for the Lowest Price in Ottawa The Friendly Sloie For Insurance On dwellings, household goods, buildings and automobiles See Dean Berlin, Agent 109 E.
