Navy Will Need Aerial Defense By JACK CLARY Associated Press Sports Writer Jerry Gross, the University of Detroit's clever little bomber, is going to put Navy's antiaircraft defenses to the acid test tonight when the two football teams meet in the Motor City. Gross, a junior quarterback, is ranked second nationally in total offense with 702 yards in leading the Titans to a 3-0 record. Navy scout Steve Belechick classified him as "an outstanding quarterback who combines fine passing with excellent running." In the night's other major game, two Southern Conference rivals William & Mary (1-4) and George Washington (2-3) play in the nation's capitol. Big games in each region, headed by top-ranked Michigan State's encounter with Notre Dame at East Lansing, Mich., highlight Saturday's program. Three—Sy racuse at Penn State, fifth-ranked I Kansas State. Alabama and Tennessee at Birmingham, and Southern California at California—will be telecast regionally by ABC. In the Southwest, third-ranked Texas (4-0), headed by halfback Jimmy Saxton, meets Arkansas' resurgent forces in what may be the key Southwest Conference game of the year. Arkansas, tied for No. 10, is 2-0 in the conference, "and the Longhorns, the most powerful team in the country, are 1-0. The other games involving the nation's top-ranked schools are all conference affairs. Second- ranked Mississippi plays Tulane, eighth-ranked Georgia Tech plays Aubqrn andJLouisiana State, tied for 10th, takes on Kentucky in SEC contests. Iowa, ranked fourth, plays Wis consin and Ohio State (No. 7) faces Northwestern in Big Ten contests while Big Eight leader Colorado (No. 9), goes against Wilt Scores 48, But McGuire's Debut Spoiled By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Frank McGuire and Eddie Donovan had different reactions after their debuts as professional coaches in the National Basketball Association. Donovan, who previously coached St. Bonaventure, was mildly pleased. McGuire, longtime successful coach at St. John's and North Carolina, was not pleased at all. The reason: McGuire's Philadelphia Warriors lost and Donovan's New York Knickerbockers won in a Madison Square Garden doubleheader that opened the NBA season Thursday night. Los Angeles overcame Wilt Chamberlain's 48 points with some good rebounding and beat McGuire's Warriors 118-113. A 10- point spree late in the last quarter put it out of reach as Donovan's Knickerbockers took the new Chicago Packers 120-103. "We made too many mistakes," McGuire complained. "Rebounding was a problem. Elgin Baylor got 21, but we expected that. But we shouldn't let a little fellow like (C-foot-3 Jerry) West get 13. That's 34 between them. We shouldn't have let them get that many." Donovan used a weave, aimed at getting Johnny Green in close enough for his deadly jump shot, as the Knicks improved a 56-55 halftime advantage to 89-79 at the end of the third quarter. Los Angeles is at Philadelphia in the only action tonight. The Saturday schedule has Detroit at Boston, New York at Philadelphia, Chicago at Syracuse and Cincinnati at St. Louis.

(AP)A new nine-state approach to industrial development in "the heartland of America's future" was unveiled today by Lester E. Cox. Cox, wealthy Springfield industrialist, is chairman of Missouri's new Commission of Commerce and Industrial Development. His idea is to get Nebraska, Iowa, Illinois, Missouri, Kansas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Tennessee and Kentucky to join in a mutual effort to attract more industry in he midlands. The initial selling job will start sometime next month when Cox, Missouri Gov. John M. Dalton and Walter A. Bowers, director of the Commerce Division, go to pringfield, 111., .for a conference vith Gov. Otto Kemer and his jidustrial development staff. Cox hopes to visit all the other tales of the "heartland" region iy next spring, then hold a general meeting to outline a program >f action. As a starter, he proposes that each state of the region appoint a man to represent it in Washing- .on in a bid for defense plants and other federal installations. PLAN TO WED — Marjorie Steele, 31, divorced wife of A and P heir Huntington Hartford, is shown in London with Dudley Sutton, 28-year-old British actor who Miss Steele says she is going to marry. If she does she'll lose the $60,000 annual alimony Hartford pays her. However, Hartford paid her $385,000 when their marriage ended earlier this year. Had Everything He Wanted Until He Tried Narcotics LOS ANGELES (AP) - Bobby Driscoll, a onetime child movie star who had everything he wanted and nothing he needed, is starting the long road back from nowhere. Driscoll, 24, was committed Wednesday to the State Narcotics Rehabilitation Center at Chino, Calif., where he must spend at least six months. "I am anxious to undergo the new narcotics program at Chino" he told Judge Allen Miller at his hearing in the psychiatric department of Superior Court. "I think I can find myself working with others who understand my problem." Driscoll had been arrested recently on a bad check charge. It was another in a series of arrests | —for disturbing the peace, brawling and narcotics violations—that began about seven years ago when his movie career started to fade. Once Driscoll was making more than $50,000 a year. He started acting at 6 in "The Sullivans" during World War n. He won an Oscar at 11 for his role in "The Window" and usually was cast as a lovable youngster in such films as "So Dear to My Heart" and "Treasure Island." He has appeared in 30 movies. What happened to him? Driscoll isn't certain, but he gave an explanation to newsmen outside the courtroom. "I had everything," he said. Heart Disease Death Rate Higher For Fag Smokers MIAMI BEACH, Fla. (AP)-A medical tale from two cities about cigarette smokers today agreed: The death rate from coronary heart disease was three times higher among middle-aged and older men smoking a pack a day or more, compared with nonsmokers, pipe or cigar smokers, and former cigarette smokers. Their death rate from all causes was three times higher also. Why they died earlier than other men is obscure. The researchers from Albany, N.Y., and Framingham, Mass., said "There is strong evidence for some lethal but nonspecific factor associated with cigarette smoking." They suggested caution "in drawing therapeutic inferences on these observations" — meaning whether changing smoking habits would reduce disease or death risks. But they said their preliminary results suggest the chance of developing coronary heart disease increases the longer and more a man smokes cigarettes. The statistical studies involving 4,120 men in Albany and Framingham during six to eight years were described to the American Heart Association's 34th annual scientific sessions opening today. The combined report was prepared by Dr. Joseph T. Doyle of Albany Medical College and Dr. Thomas R. Dawber, director of the National Heart Institute's heart disease epidemiology study at Framingham, and was read by Dr. Doyle. Earlier statistical studies have indicated a higher risk from heart disease among smokers, and even that heart disease is a greater risk from cigarette smoking than lung cancer. Loan Approved WASHINGTON (AP)-The Rural Electrification Administration announced it will lend $128,000 to W.E.G. Dial Telephone Co., Inc., at Gardner, Kan. The cooperative plans to use the money to improve its service and add 28 subscribers in Coffey County. The subscribers of the Hall Summit Farmers Cooperative plan to abandon their facilities and become subscribers of W. E. G. This involves the rebuilding of 51 miles of Hall Summit line. "Working steadily with good parts. Then I started putting all my spare time in my arm. "I'm not really sure why I started using narcotics. I was 17 when I first experimented with the stuff. In no time at all I was using whatever was available. Mostly heroin because I had the money to pay for it. "I've spent all the money I earned, except what my parents have used wisely. I'm not sure how much exactly, but I'm certain it's been considerably more than $100,000." He is the only child of Mr. and Mrs. Cletus Driscoll of Mar Vista, Calif. His father is a real estate broker. Young Driscoll was married in 1956 to Marilyn Jeanne Brush. They had three children. "My wife and I have been separated for more than a year. There's no chance of a reconciliation. I just hope that someday -I will be considered fit to have custody of my son." "I want to act again," he continued, "to become a credit to myself and to my family, to pick up where I dropped off seven years ago. I know I can."

"If we can't get a certain defense plant for ourselves, maybe we can help get it for some other state in the Mid- American region." Cox was to make his first public presentation of his heartland plan today at a meeting of the state Chamber of Commerce in St. Louis.
