7 THE OTTAWA HERALD * Friday, October 13, 1961 Junior High Beaten By Emporia A stubborn Emporia Junior High football squad took advantage of numerous Ottawa Junior High mistakes to down the Whirlwinds, 18-7, at Garfield School yere yes- day. The winners scored first after recovering an Ottawa fumble on the Whirlwind 47. The touchdown play was a 29-yard run down the left side line. Ottawa retaliated, however, as Bill Henry slashed off tackle for 45 yards and six points, John Presley ran the extra point, and the Whirlwinds took a 7-6 halftime lead. Emporia added a third period touchdown on a 45-yard run after faking a punt and scored in the finale when a tackle scooped up Henry's fumble on the Ottawa 26. The Whirlwinds now have won one, lost two and tied one. Emporia is undefeated.

Ralph Houk, 42, revealed his plans for Blanchard Thursday after he signed a new two-year contract to manage the Yankees at a reported $45,000 annual salary. "Blanchard is a very pleasan 1 problem," said Houk at a news conference. "I intend to use him as a catcher and also work him in the outfield and at first base, in case anything should happen to Moose (Skowron). "Nobody noticed much but we worked him in the outfield practically every day this year. He Used to be an outfielder, you know. He always was a good judge of a fly ball. In our judgment he can be an acceptable outfielder."
