J THE OTTAWA HERAU ' Tuesday, October 24, 1961 Buffs 10th Spartans Widen Lead By JACK HAND Associated Press Sports Writer Michigan State widened its lead over Mississippi among major colleges today in the weekly poll of The Associated Press' 48-man committee of football writers and sportscasters. A 17-7 victory over previously unbeaten Notre ! Dame gave the Spartans a 40-point edge over Mississippi, which had trailed by only two points last week. Coach Duffy Daugherty's sturdy Michigan State team, led by fullback George Saimes, collected 29 first place votes on the strength of their second half performance against Notre Dame. In the point score it was Michigan State 444, Mississippi 404. Despite a 41-0 romp over Tulane in a night game, powerful Mississippi lost some support and received only 11 first place ballots, compared to its 21-16 edge over the Spartans last week. Texas held tight to third place with three firsts after manhandling Arkansas 33-7 and Alabama moved ahead of Iowa, taking over fourth position on its 34-3 triumph over Tennessee. Iowa dropped a peg to fifth, despite its 47-15 smothering of Wisconsin. The top ten with points on a 10-9-8-7 etc. basis, with first place votes in parentheses: 1. Michigan State (29) 2. Mississippi (11) 3. Texas (3) 4. Alabama (4) 5. Iowa (1) 6. Ohio State 6. Louisiana State 8. Notre Dame 9. Georgia Tech 10. Colorado Others receiving votes included Missouri and Kansas. ARCHIE MOORE Gentile Named Soph Of Year j NEW YORK (AP)-Jim Gentile ; of the Baltimore Orioles, who : tied a one-season major league i record with five grand slam home runs in 1961, was named American League Sophomore of the Year today. The strapping first baseman was picked by 149 of the 170 members of the Baseball Writers Association taking part in the annual poll conducted by The Associated Press. Pitcher Steve Barber, a teammate of Gentile* was a distant second with 12 votes. Archie Was A Bit Put Out With Pete BALTIMORE (AP) - After knocking down Pete Rademacher eight times en route to a six- round technical knockout Monday night, ancient Archie Moore apologized fo not putting on "a more classic performance." "I tried, but this man is a very awkward fighter." Moore said. 'It's hard to hit him with one of those clean, classic punches that people like to see. I couldn't get a clean shot at him." But Moore landed lots of more common punches as he floored Rademacher once in the fourth round, five times in the fifth, and twice more in the sixth before referee Benny Goldstein mercifully ended the one-sided bout at 2:10. 444 404 372 331 327 235 128 118 108 97 Ottawans On Grid Squad BOONVILLE — Frank Barnes, son of Gordon Barnes of 1245 S. Mulberry, and Quincy Seymour, son of Quincy K. Seymour, 204 East 8th, are members of Kemper, Military School's 1961 football cquad. The Yellowjackets now have a 1-2 record. Barnes, a high school senior, is a starting guard. He has been tabbed by Coach Bob Felling as a "real fine high school player with good speed for a guard". Seymour is logging considerable time with the second team, alternating between halfback and end. Also a senior, Seymour has been described by coach Felling as doing "a real fine job for us." Moore, the recognized light heavyweight champion in New York. Massachusetts and Europe, fought at 198, well over the 175- pound limit in the scheduled 10- round non-title bout. The first three rounds were dull and drew boos from the Coliseum crowd of 3,869 which contributed to a net gate of $10,418. Midway through the fourth, Rademacher bounced off the ropes and took Moore to the floor amid flailing arms and legs. Archie looked up in disgust, mumbled something as he arose, and before the round was over Rademacher was well on the way to defeat. B Team Rally Beats Rosedale Ottawa High's B team scored two touchdowns in the last quarter yesterday afternoon to defeat visiting Rosedale, 20-12. Ottawa moved ahead in the opening quarter, when Quarterback Eddie Davidson scored on a 2-yard option play and Duane Campbell added the extra point. Rosedale scored twice in the second period, the fullback going 16 and 38 yards on a counter type play. Rosedale failed to get an extra point and led, 12-7, at the halftime. Campbell, on a fullback slant, bulled his way five yards for a TD, and Larry Koder added the extra point to put Ottawa ahead in the fourth quarter. Another TD, on a 59-yard pas play, David son to Koder, was insurance. Ottawa's next B game will be at Lawrence High on Monday, Nov, 6. The varsity will meet Lawrence here, on Cook Field at Ottawa University, at 7:30 p.m. Friday night. Oct. 27, in its last game of the season. Sportsmen Club's Project Increases Catfish Supply Rookies Shine In Pro Football By JIM HACKLEMAN Associated Press Sports Writer An even 100 rookies, ranging from headlined stars who gained glory for high-powered college teams to unheralded youngsters who played in relative obscurity for small schools, have made the grade in the National Football League. To stay on with the 14 NFL clubs these select 100 have survived the rigors of preseason training, a lengthy exhibition schedule and six weeks of league competition without being lopped off in the various squad cutdowns or suffering the damaging injuries that have wrecked many rookie hopes this year. ! wA*f"' Most of the first-year men are serving their apprenticeships in secondary roles, as reserves or as spot players on kickoff and punting unit*. A few, however, have shone brightly enough to win regular status. Seven stadiums from coast to coast will provide proving Small Wonder Chargers Lead DALLAS (AP)—A glance at the team statistics shows without hesitation why San Diego is leading the American Football League by a mile. The Chargers are the stingiest on defense of any team in the two-year history of the league. They have allowed their seven foes a total of 1,522 yards—an average of 217.4 yards per game. It's in passing defense that they are the toughest, however. The Buffalo Bills last year won the pass defense title by holding grounds for the newcomers again this Sunday in a full schedule of games—Philadelphia at Washington, Dallas at New York, Cleveland at St. Louis, Green Bay vs. Minnesota at Milwaukee, San Francisco at Pittsburgh, Chicago at Baltimore, and Detroit at Los Angeles. So far the rookies who have flashed most brilliantly this fall are Mike Ditka, the All-America end from Pitt, and Bill Kilmer, a multiple threat back from UCLA. Ditka took over as a first stringer for the Bears in the first exhibition game and since has established himself as a top-drawer receiver, averaging over 23 yards on 19 catches and scoring four touchdowns. The versatile Kilmer is a triggerman in the San Francisco 49ers' celebrated shotgun attack and his sparkling runs have put him among the league's leading rushers. Ditka overshadowed Kilmer last Sunday, grabbing two scoring passes as the Bears spiked the shotgun and routed the 49ers 31-0. Mineral Bowl Eyes •* Ottawa U EXCELSIOR SPRINGS, Mo. (AP)—Twelve football teams, including four from the Kansas- Missouri area, are under consideration for invitations to the Mineral Water Bowl game at Excelsior Springs Nov. 25. Bill Gaylor, president of the Excelsior Springs Quarterback Club, said the teams are: Pittsburg State 6-0, Ottawa 6-0, Kirksville 5-1, Missouri Valley 5-0-1, Sam Houston State (Texas) 4-1, Parsons (Iowa) 7-0, Northern Michigan 4-1, Central Oklahoma 7-0, Wheaton (111.) 5-0, Texas Southern 4-0, Baldwin - Wallace By HAROLD 0. TAYLOR Pittsburg Headlight & Sun Written for The Associated Press PITTSBURG, Kas. (AP)-For years the shortage of channel catfish has been lamented by Kansas anglers, particularly those in the southeast sector. Yet federal and state hatcheries have supplied fingerlings by the thousands. Sportsmen in organized groups protested f i n g e rlings, usually about three inches long, were, too small to protect themselves from other fish when released in ponds and strip pits. Fish and game officials have admitted the tiny cats were largely "just expensive bass food." The Kansas Forestry, Fish and Game Commission is considering more rearing ponds at Pratt to raise channel cats to longer lengths. But because of the expense, nothing has been done. About six months ago, members of an area Fish & Quail Aplenty Club enlisted aid of earthwork contractors and on land owned by a member got five rearing ponds dug. They were adjacent to a long water-filled strip pit. In a weeks time the ponds were made, pipe installed, a pump set up and water running into the ponds. Virtually everything was donated. Then came the stocking of 3- inch channel catfish, along with a few bass. For a little over five months members of the club fed the fish meat scraps donated by two local meat processing plants along with other scraps collected. The club obtained an old cement mixer in which the food was mixed. The other day the ponds were drained and fish taken out for distribution into 40 strip pits in which the public is allowed to fish. The 3 - inch fingerlings had Missouri, KUWar Simmering LAWRENCE CAP) -. Trying to cool the hot Misouri-Kansas football rivalry apparently is something like the simmering international •cold war. Student leaders of both universities say they don't want any more fist-fighting like that at th« Kansas-Missouri basketball game, nationally televised last season; nor the raucous treatment given the Tiger cagers when they came to Lawrence. Looking ahead to the football game at Lawrence Nov. 25, both sides have been talking about summit meetings, but nothing has come off yet. Max Eberhart, K. U. student body president, said Monday "Missouri is lackadaisical about the whole affair." Eberhart said the Missouri ans seem to think it's K. U's job to keep the peace, since the game is in Lawrence. At Columbia. Roger Bridges, president of the Missouri student body, said he was amazed at such talk. He said the football schedule this fall prevented holding a meeting in Lawrence. "So we issued an invitation for a meeting in Columbia," Bridges said. "The date was set for Nov. 12. Mr. Eberhart accepted and we are going ahead with our plans." TKUDY FINLEY, Pittsburg, holds in left hand 3-inch fingerling channel catfish, size put into the Fish and Quail Aplenty Club's rearing ponds about six months ago. In other hand is a foot-long catfish taken out of rearing ponds to be put into strip pits in area. grown to 11 to 13 inches in length. There were 11,000 distributed, along with about 1,000 bass that were placed in the ponds. The project has been so successful and so inexpensive that club members plan to start another next spring. (Ohio) 4-0, and ers (S. D.) 7-0. Northern Teach- Sees Colorado As Giant Asleep KANSAS CITY (AP)-Here's a new assay of some Big Eight football teams: Colorado-rA sleeping giant. Oklahoma — A real good team that is going to beat somebody. Kansas State—Nobody has beaten them badly but Nebraska.

Buffalo intercepted only 33 for the entire 1960 season. Houston still leads in total offense, rolling up 2,401 yards in six games. San Diego is second with 2,366. Spahn, Donovan ERA Leaders The assajer? Dan Devine of course. The Missouri coach weighed in with this report at the Kansas City Byline Club Monday. Devine likened his Tigers to a scrambling golfer. "They've made a lot of recovery shots to win ball games," he said. "They've come up with some great clutch plays but they are missing on the long plays that scored touchdowns for them last year. "And I want people to know that the Missouri football team still is predominantly a team of Missourians." Other pieces of incidental information from Devine: Missouri will plead hardslu'p case for Keith Weber, the Jefferson City sophomore who seemed well on the way to becoming a great quarterback. He was injured in the first six minutes of the first game and lost for the season. An operation on his knee apparently was successful Missouri wants the conference to grant him another season of eligibility. Devine said he sees nothing \\Tong with a coach calling the next play from the sideline by sending in a substitute. The ethics committee of the coaches' association has approved it, he said. NEW YORK (AP) - Warren j Spahn of Milwaukee and Dick Donovan of Washington are the major leagues' earned run lead-1 ers for 1961. j Spahn gave up 88 earned runs j in 263 innings for a 3.01 mark, I the highest ever for a National League leader. The veteran left-hander also won the title in 1947 and 1953. Donovan has plenty to crow about. Associated Press statistics compiled Monday showed he yielded 45 earned runs in 169 innings for a 2.40 mark. He thus became the first Washington pitcher to win the crown Sanders May Miss Tourney LAS VEGAS, Nev.

In addition, they conducted 4,310 investigations. There were 333 arrests made and 330 convictions. The school fund became richer by $4,158 through fines levied, and violators paid an additional $1,950.27 in court costs. Eight hunting licenses and 13 fishing licenses were revoked. Deputy game protectors, who serve part-time without pay, accounted for 43 arrests and convictions. In addition to regular patrols, which resulted in the arrest and convictions listed above, Game Protectors aided in pond rehabilitation, quail stocking, public meetings and other miscellaneous duties. Sooners Are Next For Big 8 Leader To Enforce Bird Rules The Kansas Forestry, Fish and Game Commission has indicated that the upland game bird stamp regulation will be strictly enforced this year. This is the first year for the stamp, which replaced the old quail stamp and is needed for the hunting of pheasants, prairie chicken and quail. Prairie chicken season opens Nov. 4; pheasant, Nov. 11, and quail, Nov. 17. Crushed Stone Govt. Lime Spread Washed Kaw Sand FOGLE QUARRY CH 2-4864 — CH 2-1782 By WES COOK The Associated Press Colorado and Oklahoma have met 15 times on a football field. The Golden Buffaloes won the first game 14-12 in 1912. They also won the 15th game, 7-0 last year. The Buffaloes would rather forget the other 13 games. Although Oklahoma frequently was the underdog against some of the best teams ever fielded by Colorado, the Sooners won all 13. Now the Buffs are looking for their second straight victory over the Sooners. Colorado is undefeated in four games this season. The Buffs lead the Big Eight conference with a 3-0 record. Coach Sonny Grandelius has one of the league's biggest and most experienced lines, headed by All-America candidate Joe Romig at guard.

Auctioneers: Stewart & Beetty Pro Basketball By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Tuesday Games Los Angeles vs. Cincinnati New York St. Louis at New York Wednesday Games Los Angeles at Detroit Monday Results No games scheduled at gerous passing attack in the league. Coach Dan Devine of Missouri describes Colorado as a "sleeping giant." Oklahoma, undisputed king of the Big Eight for so many years, faces what may be its most dismal year under Coach Bud Wilkinson. It goes against Colorado without a victory in four tries. There would appear to be little doubt that Colorado will extend the Sooner losing string to five. But most observers remain cautious when weighing the chances of Oklahoma. The Oklahomans finally yielded the league title to Missouri last year after winning it 12 consecutive years. Devine reflects the caution when he says "Oklahoma is a real good team that is going to beat somebody." Missouri, with a 2-0 league record and 4-0-1 for the season, plays Nebraska at Columbia. Nebraska is 1-1 and 2-2-1 overall. The Tigers still have not found the personnel to unlock the overpowering sweep series of last year. But their defense is tremendous and is expected to keep them in contention for the title.
