THE OTTAWA HERAIJ) Saturday October 14, 1961 Ottawa High Crowns Queen But Redmen Crown Ottawa Ottawa High crowned a home- 1 coming queen last night, but the Redmen of Atchison crowned the Cyclones, 35-12 on Ottawa University's gridiron. And a 167-pound junior halfback, Willis Letchcr, had a big hand in it, scoring four touchdowns and converting once for 25 points. Atchison held a 21-0 lead when the players turned over Cook Field to the band and queen candidates and their 7 ' lucky escorts for the halftime coronation. The Cyclones scored in the third quarter after recovering a Redman's fumble on the Atchison 27. But the Redmen more than made up for it with a TD of their own in the third quarter and getting the extra point. The Cyclones scored again in the fourth quarter on a 60-yard march carried out so well it made you wonder why they were behind. But the Cyclones rubbed it in with another touchdown with only 13 seconds left in the game. It was a thorough beating. The Redmen rolled up 332 yards rushing and added 59 with a perfect 4-for-4 passing record. Ottawa moved 148 yards on the ground, but completed none of [hree passes. Atchison picked off two of them. Junior halfback Paul Stephens, who helped liillback Mckey Reed provide most of Ottawa's offensive punch, scored the Cyclone's first touchdown by taking a pitchout from quarterback Roy Dunn and slipping around left end for five yards. Reed scored the other one on one of his many power drives through the center, this one from Atchison's 1-yard line. An Ottawa recovery of a Redman fumble on the Atchison 27 set the Cyclones up for their first score. Reed and Dunn and a personal foul penalty against Atchi son moved the ball to the 5. The second Ottawa scoring trek began on the Cyclones' 40 where they had held the Redmen and taken the ball on downs. Five first downs later, with Reed, Stephens and Dunn toe ball carriers, Ottawa was on the Atchison 3. Reed went over in two cracks at the line from there. Atchison opened the scoring with less than four minutes gone on the opening period. The Redmen moved 77 yards after Ottawa's kickoff, with Letcher scoring from the Ottawa 25 on a left end sweep. He had sparked the drive with an earlier left end sweep good for 32 yards. Quarterback Chuck Rasmussen ran over the extra point. Bob Birch scored the Redmen's second touchdown, still in the first quarter, on a push from the Ottawa 3. Letcher ran the extra point. Letcher scored in the second quarter on a 40-yard run, and fullback John Van Dyke ran the extra point. Letcher's third-quarter TD was on an 8-yard run. Birch ran the extra point. Let- cher's last TD, coming with just 13 seconds left in the game, was on a 34-yard run. Rasmussen passed to end, Dave Kilander, who caught all four of the Atchison passes, for the extra point. The loss was the Cyclones' third straight. They hold a 1-win, 3-loss record for the season, having been credited with beating Olathe in the opening game because Olathe used an ineligible player. The score was Olathe 37 Ottawa 0.

The winners broke loose for three touchdowns in the second period and added a fourth in the third quarter. The last two touchdowns were recovered fumbles, one on the losers' 15; allowing Gary Gilbert to score from the 12, the other in the end zone by Dan Lyddane, a lineman. Other Northern Heights scores were by Jim White on a 30-yard pass from Richard Golliher and by Dean Day on a 4-yard line plunge. Day and Golliher both ran extra points. Williamsburg's Phil Piersol scored on a 50-yard run, but the touchdown was called back because of clipping. A second Piersol run, this time for 60 yards, was nullified because of holding. Williamsburg, which will play at Kincaid Oct. 20, has won one game and lost three. Score by quarters: Williamsburg .... 0 000—0 Northern Heights 0 19 7 0-26 Field Goal Gives Buffs 9-7 Edge By BOB GREEN Associated Press Sports Writer Colorado used a tough, alert defense and Detroit a brilliant quarterback as the keys for their victories Friday night—each preserving an .unbeaten season—as the college football season headed into a Big Ten-dominated weekend. Colorado, shooting for the Big Eight championship and a postseason trip to the Orange Bowl, showed the bowl committee a de- termined defense which pounced on a fourth-quarter fumble that set up the wining field goal in a 9-7 victory over injury-weakened Miami. Junior quarterback Jerry Gross passed for 196 yards—including scoring strikes of 43 and 57 yards —in leading Detroit to a 20-3 conquest of Boston College. Colorado halted a 78-yard Miami drive one foot from its goal in the first period, then turned around and launched a 99- yard march of its own for • 9-9 half-time lead. Miami was on the Colorado five when the half ended. The Buffaloes went up 9-0 in the last quarter when big Jerry Hillebrand pounced on a Miami fumble that paved the way for his 37-yard field goal. The three points proved decisive as Miami drove 62 yards to score with four minutes left. John Bennett's 25 yard pass to Bill Miller scored the touchdown. Pomona Too Much For Quenemo POMONA — Pomona High School was too much for Quenemo High yesterday afternoon, winning a 6-man football game over the Osage County team, 36 to 12. Jim Goracke was the big scoring gun for Pomona with some good assistance on one touchdown play from Bernie Nelson. Nelson flipped a pass to Goracke, and the play was good for 15 yards and the touchdown. Goracke scored two more touchdowns, both on runs, one for 20 yards and the other for 10. Jim Burgoon scored another of Pomona's touchdowns on a 12- yard run. Nelson again came into the scoring picture when he passed to Dick Stoneking on a 35-y a r d touchdown play. John Thompson kicked three extra points for Pomona. Joe Hoover, Quenemo, made the longest touchdown dash of 'the game, going 75 yards after recpjv-., ing a short pass. The other Quenemo touchdown was on a 4-yard run by Jim Gragg. Score by quarters: Pomona 0-20-8-8—36 Quenemo 0-0-6-6—12 On Friday, Oct. 20, Pomona will be host to the Carbondale High team for the Pomona homecoming game at 1:30 p.m. College Football College Football By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Colorado 9, Miami (Fla) 7 Detroit 20, Boston College 3 US Netters Make Italy Eat Words ROME (AP)-Even if the United States eventually loses the Davis Cup interzone final to Italy, the Americans already can claim a moral victory. They have made Italian sports fans and tennis experts eat their words. Before the five-match series started, Italians were talking of their team winning all the matches and going on to Australia to meet the Australians in the challenge round for the cup. Now the Italians are not so sure. Jon Douglas of Santa Monica, Calif., and Whitney Reed of Alameda, Calif., have provided the shock for the Italians. On the red clay central court of the Rome Tennis Club, Friday, Douglas came from behind to upset Italian champion Fausto Gardini in the opening match. The score was 4-6, 4-6, 7-5, 10-8, 6-0. Then Reed took on Nicola Pietrangeli. Reed is virtually un- here. He is rated only eighth in the United States. Pietrangeli is generally considered Europe's best amateur. Reed made him look bad, winning two sets, 6-2, 8-6, before the match was suspended because of darkness. At the time of suspension, with Pietrangeli serving, Pietrangeli led 4-3 in games in the third set. 5th Straight For Melvern AUBURN - Unbeaten Melvern won its fifth straight game last night, a 42-14 rampage over Mickey Wright Leads PGA Field LAS VEGAS, Nov. (AP) -Miss Mickey Wright, defending champion, is showing the way at the halfway mark in the women's PGA championship. Her 77 Friday, after a first day's 67, kept her two strokes ahead of Shirley En«lehorn of Spokane, whose 74 left her with 146. Jo Ann Prenlice of Birmingham had a 76 Friday and is in third place with 149. Auburn in an 8-man game. Darrell Schultz scored two touchdowns, on runs of 2 and 5 yards, and two extra points. Other Melvern TDs came on a 3- yard run by Fain Price, a 10- yard run by Jim Irey. 40-yard run by Wayne Cramwell and a 10-yard pass play, Irey to Bill Kramer. Price, Bob Criss and Jerry Irey each added an extra point. Auburn scored both its touchdowns in the final quarter. Melvern will observe homecoming next Friday night with Hamilton the opponent. Score by quarters: Melvern 7-14-14- 6 Auburn 0-0- 0-12 David Freed, nonplaying captain of the U.S. Davis Cup team, said he would not name his doubles team until he knows the Reed-Pietrangeli result. Apparently Freed would like to use Douglas if he can avoid tiring him. The other U.S. team members —Donald Dell of Bethesda, Md., and Martin Riessen of Evanston, 111.—are both under consideration for the doubles. * * * Italian Rallies To Beat Reed ROME, Italy (AP) — Nicola Pietrangeli rallied today to beat Whitney Reed 2-6, 6-8, 6-4, 6-4, 6-4 and gave Italy a 1-1 tie with the United States after the first two singles matches of the Davis Cup interzone tennis round. The match was halted by darkness Friday after Reed had won the first two sets.

Nichols, former Texas A&M golfer, shot a 71 over the wind-lashed Whispering Lakes course and has 137 for the two rounds. Billy Maxwell of Dallas and Dave Hill of Denver, who shot 69s Friday, are tied for third place at 138. They and the veteran Lloyd Mangrum of Apple Valley were the only three to break par 36-34—70 Friday. Americans Lead In Ryder Cup Golf Protest March At University LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP)A picket line of 76 Negro students marched briefly in protest on the University of Kansas campus during lunch hour Friday. They carried carefully - lettered signs proclaiming racial discrimination by university-a p p r o v e d boarding houses that are off campus and privately owned. K. U.- operated dormitories are open to both Negro and white students. The marchers filed a list of grievances with Chancellor W. Clarke Wescoe's office then dispersed.

By RONALD THOMPSON Associated Press Sports Writer LYTHAM-St. ANNES, England (AP) — Jerry Barber led his troupe of top American pro golfers into the payoff stages of the Ryder Cup competition today with a G-2 lead over Britain and this stern warning: "Don't relax. We haven't won yet." The Americans won three of Friday's eight foursomes by the narrowest of margin, 1 up, and another match by only 2 and 1. "I would have been pleased with a level four matches each," said the American captain. "As it is, I'm amazed and delighted that we have such a good lead. "But the close result shows that the singles could go either way. So nobody in the American team is going to be allowed to get overconfident," he said. Arnold Palmer, Britians favorite American golfer who won this country's open championship three months ago, and Bill Casper collared both their foursomes as did Jay Hebert and Art Wall. Barber dropped Art Wall from this morning's eight singles even though the tall and lean Pennsylvanian figured in two foursome victories. Bill Collins, who partnered Mike Souchak in an afternoon of trouble that ended with a four and two defeat, also was to rest. Barber can change his lineup for the eight afternoon singles and may decide to bring both these men back, depending on the early result. British captain Dai Rees called in long-hitting Harry Weelman and up-and-coming Ralph Moffitt for the singles. Neither played foursomes. Pairings for the eight morning singles over 18 holes, Americans first: Doug Ford vs. Harry Weetman, Mike Souchak vs. Ralph Moffitt, Arnold Palmer vs. Peter Alliss, Bill Casper vs. Ken Bousfield, Jay Hebert vs. Dai Rees, Gene Littler vs. Neil Coles, Jerry Barber vs. Bernard Hunt, Dow Finsterwald vs. Christy O'Connor. Lane Leads In Baseball PRINCETON - Mike Kuder struckout 14 batters as Lane smashed Princeton, 10-3, in a baseball game here yesterday. Kuder gave up three runs on five hits, all of them singles. Lane's 10 runs came on seven hits off Dean McBride and four Princeton errors. The winners erred twice. Lane now leads the league with a 4-2 record, but could be tied if Richmond beats Rantoul Monday at Rantoul. Princeton ended its season, 3-3.
