7 THE OTTAWA HERALD * Thursday, October 19, 1961 Rebels Would Ride Green Wave To Top By JACK CLARY Associated Press Sports Writer Mississippi's football team has two objectives this weekend at Tulane, aYid, not necessarily in order of importance. They are: Get back the No. 1 spot among the college football teams in next week's Associated Press poll, and beat the Green Wave, increasing their defeatless string to 20 games. Despite a 47-7 victory over Houston last week, Ole Miss went from first to second, with Michigan State now No. 1. The Rebels have put the mission in good hands—the offense and the defense. Both have been dynamic. The offense is ranked second nationally and the defense 10th. Tulane, which has lost three of four games, is not close to the top 10. Doug Elmore is in charge of the offensive. He is successor to the graduated All-America quarterback Jake Gibbs, who has hardly been missed. Elmore has gained 559 yards in the Rebels' four victories, and has been handicapped by his team's greatness. He just hasn't been able to play for an extended period in any one game. The defense is a team proposition. Ole Miss Coach John Vaught is blessed with enough manpower for three fine teams. But still Mississippi ranks second to Michigan State, and all the statistics in the world don't mean a thing today to the Rebels. | They may mean more next week if objective No. 1 is accomlished. Ole Miss is not above taking a helping hand from Notre Dame, which plays Michigan State this week. The Irish got a psychological lift Wednesday—if they needed one with five straight losses to the Spartans—when their practice field was invaded by 2,000 whooping students who staged a rare, impromptu demonstration. Bill Schoonovcr, Syracuse's first strine; halfback, was sidelined for Saturday's game against Penn State with a broken hand, joining varsity performer Dick Easterly, another halfback, on the sidelines along with a flock of second team performers. Texas Christian worked its all- sophomore backfield of quarterback Gary Mills, halves Larry and Gary Thomas and fullback Tom Crutcher, along with injured quarterback Sonny Gibbs, in preparation for the Texas Tech game. Fullback Bill Merlin! and end Hank Large of Princeton will be out of Saturday's game against Colgate with injuries while Cornell halfbac!: Marcy Tino will miss the Big Red's homecoming contest against Yale after being sidelined with recurring knee trouble. Pomona B Team Beats Lecompton LECOMPTON — Roger Shoemaker, of Pomona, scored 25 points as the Pomona B team whipped Lecompton's B squad, 33-20, here yesterday. Shoemaker scored twice on 25- yard runs and once on dashes of 65 and 5 yards. Rus Ribeau added the other Pomona touchdown on a 35-yard romp. Shoemaker, Ribeau and Gale Mantis each had an extra point for the winners. Ken Stauffer of Lecompton scored all 20 points for the losers on runs of 5, 10 and 2 yards and two extra points. Lecompton is scheduled to play a B tilt at Pomona Oct. 28. Score by quarters: Pomona 6-7-13-7 — 33 Lecompton .0-0-13-7 — 20 BREAKS OF THE GAME — Four Syracuse football players, sidelined with fractured bones, • show the breaks. From left: Halfback Dick Easterly, end Dick Bowman, tackle John Paglio and * quarterback Bob Lelli. A fifth injured man is halfback Jim Gaskins. Lack Of Depth .-•w £*•• |7 ^Hurting I-State AMES, Iowa. (AP) - Iowa State's scrappy Cyclones must find solutions to two serious prob- Jems this week if they expect to rebound against undefeated Missouri here Saturday. The most painful truth as the football season reaches the halfway point became evident last week. That is the well-conditioned Cyclones do not have the depth to hold up through four bruising quarters of a Big Eight Conference game. Iowa State, undefeated in its first three games, held rugged Kansas to a 7-7 tie through three quarters last Saturday, then yielded two fourth-period touchdowns and a 21-7 setback. In beating Drake, Oklahoma State and Oklahoma, the Cyclones have done only spot substituting. "We're going to play more boys," says Coach Clay Stapleton, "and it's our hope we can play two deep at every position "1 think we are going to get better, but our lack of 'depth is a factor now. When we get whipped it's generally in the is 205-pound guard Dan Celoni, a strong All-America candidate. But the Cyclones are weak at the other line positions, where several of last year's stalwarts were graduated. Both Iowa State and defending champion Missouri need a victory to stay in the race for the conference championship. Loi Likes Those Delays MILAN (AP) — World junior welterweight champion Duilio Loi;;S .title defense Saturday night against Eddie Perkins of Chicago has become the hottest topic of conversation among Milanese sports fans. The fight was first scheduled for Sept. 7, but the Italian boxer said his left hand was -hurt in an earlier match and he got a postponement. Again last week Loi asked a week's delay because of an intestinal disorder. Loi has made such requests before when a major fight was upcoming, giving rise to the legend Bowline; Scores WEDNESDAY NIGHT LADIES Moore—:', High 10-30 — L.

The second problem is that of finding a steady replacement for Dave Hoppmann, the important tailback in the Cyclone single wing offense. In four games. Huppnann has carried the ball on about 95 per cent of the plays. "That's too much of a load for one man," Stapleton says. Hoppmann is well on his way toward winning the conference rushing title again. Now a junior, he has gaiiv.-d 403 yards on 109 carries. He ranks tliird in Big Eight passing with 205 yards on 12 completions in 21 throws. Ozzie Clay, sophomore speedster, is Hoppmann's No. 1 replacement. He missed the Kansas game because of a knee injury and it is doubtful whether he will be ready for Missouri. Dave Hoover, another sophomore counted on to give Hoppmann relief, has been moved to fullback to fill a vacancy there caused by injury to Dave Clayberg. , Iowa State's greatest line asset' postponements. Declares Many *' Shelters Faulty NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP)-The Tennessee Civil Defense Agency Pro Cage Coaches In Debut NEW YORK (AP)-Two of college basketball's most successful coaches, Frank McGuire and Eddie Donovan, make their professional debuts tonight as the 16th National Basketball Association season begins with a doubleheader at Madison Square Garden. With a new team in the Chicago Packers, a new schedule of 80 games per team, and prospects of an "old look" with St. Louis and Boston again favored in the division races, the NBA starts with Los Angeles playing Philadelphia and Chicago opposing New York. The other teams will be in action by the end of the week, getting under way a season that will still be tapping along when baseball resumes next spring. McGuire, long-time winning coach at St. John's and North Carolina, is the new coach of the Philadelphia Warriors — a formal way of spelling 7-foot-2 Wilt Chamberlain and cohorts. Donovan has the unenviable task of trying to shape the hapless New York Knicks into a winner, taking over a team that won only 21 of 79 games last season. Eddie came to the Knicks from St. Bonaventure, where he had nationally ranked powers the last six years. Better Bowling First Of 4 Steps Important Gator Bowl Eves .' Buffs, Missouri JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP>Missouri and Colorado are included in a list of football teams considered prospects for the Gator Bowl in Jacksonville, Fla., Dec. 30. Gator Bowl officials Tuesday said four other new prospects had been added to its list, bringing the total number to 14. They were Tennessee, Auburn, Arkansas and Rice. There's little or no chance Missouri or Colorado would be permitted to play in the Gator Bowl, however, since the Big Eight Con- erence limits its post season football participation to the Orange Bowl with which it has a new contract. Padgett Golf Pro Of Year DUNEDIN, Fla. (AP) - Don Padgett, 36-year-old professional at the Green Hills Golf and Country Club in Selma, Ind., has been named PGA golf professional of the year. The announcement of the honor awarded the native of New Castle, Ind., was made today by Lou has warned that 90 per cent of Strong, president of the Professional Golfers' Association of America. the private fallout shelters it has j inspected are faulty—"as bad as no shelter at all." Attention Hunters SHOTGUN SHELLS All Sizes and Gauges at DISCOUNT PRICES See Us for the Lowest Price in Ottawa By PHYLLIS NOTARO Women's Bowling Champion Written for AP Newsfeatures- I always stress the four-step delivery for new and advanced bowlers in clinics all over the country. The first step, the pushaway — Start off on your right foot, pushing the ball smoothly out in front of you the length of the first step. The motion must be synchronized. This is the most important step in bowling and is called the "point of no return." The second step — As your left foot moves forward, the ball descends in a straighl line and is even with your right thigh. Don't hang on to it with two hands; it will throw off your timing. The third step — On the right foot; the ball ascends to the height of the backswing; no higher than shoulder level. The fourth step — Slide on your left foot. The ball completes its arc, still in a straight line and continues a few inches past the foul line; it is released simultaneously with the end of the step. After releasing the ball, the hand continues forward and upward to about eye level height during the follow through. Being a spot bowler, I do not look at the pins, but roll the ball over the second arrow from the right, about 15 feet down the lane. Practice the four-step delivery, and you'll soon see your game improving. TOMORROW: Splits. Celtic Coach Peeved At South BOSTON (AP)-Boston Celtics owner Walter Brown was still steaming today about the incident at Lexington. Ky., Tuesday night when two of his Negro players were refused service at a hotel coffee shop. 'The Celtics will never play another exhibition game in the South or any other place where they might be embarrassed," Brown said. "I didn't want to go down there this time. I had promised that after an unpleasant incident at Charlotte, N.C., previously when the boys were embarrassed. "I'm not so hungry for money that I'd arrange games where my players might be em- barassed. Never again." Celtics player Frank Ramsey, who played at the University of Kentucky—in Lexington — apologized for the hotel employe who refused to serve Sam Jones and Tom Sanders. Jones and Sanders told teammates Bill Russell, K.C. Jones and Al Butler about the refusal of service and all five—plus St. Louis Hawks players Woody Sauldsberry and Cleo Hill — returned to their homes befire the exhibition game. All are Negroes. END OF SLIDE - After releasing ball, Phyllis Notaro always ends follow through with right hand forward. Hand ends up near eye level. "Firm And Fair" Policy Pays Off For Eagle Coach PHILADELPHIA (AP) - The other day a Philadelphia Eagles lineman was sitting in a coffee shop telling someone that head coach Nick Skorich was a fair guy and all the players thought highly of him and would do their darndest for him. Skorich, promoted from assist- when Buck Shaw retired at ant Angels Sign Salina Youth LOS ANGELES (AP)-Richard Rose, a 20-year-old outfielder from Salina, Kan., Wednesday was signed to a minor league baseball contract by the Los Angeles Angels. A 6-foot 195-pounder, Rose will be assigned to San Jose in the Class C California State League. For Insurance On dwellings, household goods. buildings and automobiles See Dean Berlin, Agent 109 E Second Phone CH 2-2804 the end of last year, was never told of the conversation but he was asked today what his philosophy of coaching was. "I can tell you in a nutshell," he said. "As far as I'm concerned it's being firm and fair in getting the maximum abilities out of j your players. "To be successful you have to be a 36-man team, not a 1 or 2 ,or 8 man team. Even' man must give his maximum. You handle each individual different but as a team you demand the same thing." Skorich said he doesn't think Football League champion Eagles now tied for the Eastern Conference lead with a 4-1 record, have gradually improved this year. Some observers had picked Cleveland to win the title this year since the Eagles had lost Norm Van Brocklin. Skorich said he doesnt think the Eagles, who meet Dallas Sunday in one of the top NFL games, have reached their poten tial but they approached it last week in a victory over St. Louis. While the Eagles travel to Dallas, the New York Giants, who share the Eastern lead, host Los Angeles, St. Louis is at Washington and Cleveland at Pittsburgh. In the Western Conference, San Francisco, tied for the lead with a 4-1 mark, goes to Chicago, co- leader Green Bay is at Minnesota, and Baltimore plays at Detroit. Pittsburg 0_ State On Top Of Heap KANSAS CITY (AP)-Piltsburg State's unbeaten, untied, un- scored-6n Gorillas bobbed to the top this week in the national football ratings compiled by the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics. Will it be a jinx for the Kansans? Texas A&I was on top last week but fell 15-8 before a Howard Payne team that hadn't won a game. Northern Michigan azid Hillsdale of Michigan lopped previous polls and went down to defeat the next time they played. This week's balloting was the closest of the year and Pittsburg beat out Northern Michigan by only seven points—258-251. Northern Michigan and third-place Texas A&I both garnered eight first places in the voting, Pittsburg only seven. Southeastern Louisiana and Baldwin-Wallace of Ohio moved up a notch each, to fourth and fifth. Humboldt State of California dropped from second to sixth after a 19-7 upset at the hands of Sacramento State. Central Oklahoma State is seventh, Florida A&M eighth, West Chester State of Pennsylvania ninth, and Whittier of California tenth. Pitlsburg Stale plays its homecoming game Saturday against « conference rival, Fort Hays State, which has one victory, two losses and a tie.
