THE OTTAWA HERALD Wednesday, 'October 25, 1961 This Gopher Goes For TDs By JACK CLARY Associated Press Sports Writer If anyone mentioned Sandy Stephens' name a year ago, it was an effort trying to place him as the quarterback of the national diampion Minnesota Gophers. They just weren't a team of backfield stars. It's different this year. The Gophers-. are right in the middle of the fight for a second successive Big Ten title, and the 6-foot Stephens is the man at the helm. After a 6-0 opening loss to Missouri. Stephens has come back to take an active hand in every touchdown—eight in all—that the Gophers have scored in wanning three consecutive games. Unlike most quarterbacks, the senior from Uniontown, Pa., is not an outstanding passer. He completed only 35.3 per cent a year ago, and until a torrid 7-for- 12 against Illinois, missed 35 of 42 in the three preceding 1961 games. Stephens may have to go it alone this week against Michigan. Jerry Pelletier, who has spelled him on defense, is out with a shoulder separation and Stephens may have to play both ways. Princeton's Dick Coleman is worried about an aerial attack— his own. Noting his team completed only 2 of 13 passes for 14 yards in a 15-0 loss to Colgate last week, he remarked, "We've got to work on throwing under pressure" as he drilled for Cornell. Penn won't have No. 1 tailback John Owens for its game against Rutgers this week and Mickey Brown will probably take his place. Oklahoma put Paul Lea into the first-string left halfback post and had ends John Porterfield and Dale Perini in scrimmage for the first time in nearly two weeks. Maryland will still be without backs Dennis Condie and Bob Burton against South Carolina back Eddie Taylor for its non- league clash against Xavier. Iowa State Coach Clay Stapleton moved fullback Dave Hoover to tailback on the alternate unit for Ozzie Clay, who is out for the year with a knee injury. At Penn State, Don Jonas, restricted by a dislocated collarbone, will be limited to nothing but extra points and field goals for four weeks. Kansas may lose its two top tackles, Stan Kirshman and Dick Davis, and end Mike Dear, with various ailments, for this week's game against Oklahoma State while Northwestern's leadin'g ground gainer, Bill Swingle, is while the Citadel, atop the South- not expected to play against Not- ern Conference, may miss half- re Dame because of a lame knee. Just Call Steve "The Clutch 55 By JACK HAND Associated Press Sports Writer If Cleveland's Lou Groza is "The Toe" then Baltimore's Steve Myhra must be "The Clutch." The Colts have won only three National Football League games this season .and Myhra has won all three with field goals in the closing minutes. Myhra, a 6-foot-l, 240-pounder from the Red River Valley of North Dakota, credits Bobby Boyd, the all holder, with his sudden success. "We work better as a unit, than the other fellows who worked with me before," said Myhra today in Baltimore. "George Shaw, Ray Brown and Johnny Sample used to hold at various times. But Boyd makes the difference. The kicker gets the credit or blame when it usually is because of a difference of three or four inches in where the ball was placed." Whatever the reason, Myhra at 27, is enjoying his finest year. He has kicked 8 of 13 field goals or 61 per cent of his attempts in only six games. Last year he made 9 of 19, his personal high. His career record is 31 of 65. According to Myhra the toughest club on field goal kickers is the Chicago Bears, the team the Colts play Sunday at Baltimore. "They load seven or eight men on one side and come at you," he said. Other NFL games Sunday will find the Green Bay Packers, now leaders of the Western Division playing the Minnesota Vikings a Milwaukee. New York, coleadei in the Eastern half, will play Dal las at Yankee Stadium, and Phila delphia, which shares the leac with the Giants, plays winles Washington on the road. The San Francisco 49ers will try to reas semble their shotgun charges a Pittsburgh. Cleveland will play a St. Louis and Detroit at Los An geles. Baylor, West Fire Lakers To Victory By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS The St. Louis Hawks, who've made winning the Western Division of the National Basketball Association a habit, may have a tougher time of it this season now that young Jerry West has come of age. West, the former West Virginia All-America with the all-round skills, hit the 30-point figure for the third straight game Tuesday night as he and incomparable Elgin Baylor fired the Los Angeles Lakers to a 124-122 victory over the Cincinnati Royals. When the rookie-studded New York Knicks upset St. Louis 112110 in the second game of the doubleheader at Madison Square Garden, the Lakers found theifiH selves IVi games up on the Hawks with the season hardly started. St. Louis has yet to win in two starts while the Lakers are 2-1 and showing no special weakness now that it is established that Baylor won't have to carry the heavy scoring alone. West and Baylor combined for 61 points Tuesday night — with Baylor's two free throws with seven seconds left clinching the victory over Cincinnati. Old hads Bob Pettit (27 points) and Clyde Lovellette (20) hit to their usual form for St. Louis, especially in the second half, but the young Knicks were able to ovTcome them with some hot shooting of their own. Richie Gurin had 29 points, Willie Naulls 22 and Johnny Green 20 for New York. Would Shield Collegiate Player From Temptation By ED CORRIGAN Associated Press Sports Writer NEW YORK (AP)-The National Collegiate Athletic Association still smarting under the basketball scandals of last March, aimed today to tighten the regu- ations on college players to the extent that they will be complete- y shielded from outside influences. The powerful 18-man council of ihe NCAA—a body which rarely, if ever, is questioned by the organization, Tuesday adopted four amendments to NCAA rules which would tighten the holds on college slayers. four amendments will be presented with the council's backing at the annual NCAA convention in Chicago on Jan. 11-13. They are almost certain to be passed. The amendments are: 1., The barring of all outside basketball competition, including the summer leagues. "Originally," said Walter Byers, executive director of the NCAA, "the recommendation was to bar the players from summer competition. But the council heard a report from the gambling committee which recommended all outside competition, and decided to adopt it." 2. A pre-registration rule that bars an athlete from engaging in varsity competition until he has been in residence in a college two years if he decides to transfe after registering at an institution. "We have been concerned with athletes transferring from junior colleges and starting varsity competition," said Byers. 3. Transfer rule that would require an athlete to be in residence in the school to which he transfers for one year before he can engage in varsity competition. 4. A recommendation that an athlete suspended from a college for disciplinary or academic reasons must complete two years of satisfactory work to be eligible for varsity competition in another school. The present rule is one year. Steers Make It Three In Row WARRENSBURG, Mo. (AP) The Kansas City Steers won their third straight American Basketball League exhibition from the Pittsburgh Rens Tuesday night, cashing in seven straight points in the final three minutes for a 104102 victory. Larry Staverman, Larry Comley and Bob McDonald came off the bench to engineer the fourth-quarter surge. Staverman and Bill Bridges had 18 apiece for Kansas City. Connie Hawkins led the scoring with 31 for Pittsburgh. Pittsburgh has won one game of the series. They play again Wednesday night at Lincoln, Neb I among others. Spartan Is Back Of Week By MURRAY ROSE Associated Press Sports Writer George Saimes, of Michigan State, the shining star of the game of the week, was named today the Back of the Week in The Associated Press poll. A defensive stalwart, the 20- year-old fullback broke loose in the second : half to rip apart Notre Dame's defenses and lead the top- ranking Spartans to a 17-7 victory over the sixth-ranking Irish. The quick-striking, 186-pound junior, the campus champ in dancing "the Twist," showed his shaky hips to the Irish defenders in reeling off scoring runs of 24 and 25 yards within 2 minutes and 46 seconds. He streaked 26 yards in the final quarter to help set up the insurance field goal. In all he carried 14 times for 142 yards, a sterling show against a team with a rock-ribbed defense. Saimes had a fine array of contenders behind him in Matt Szykowny of Iowa; Eddie Wilson of Arizona: Jim Parker of Clemson; Jerry Gross of Detroit; Sandy Stephens of Minnesota; Dick Drummond of George Washington, and Pat Trammel! of Alabama, Romig, Celoni Set Fast Pace For Big 8 Guards Salina Moves Up In AP Poll TOPEKA (AP)-Manhattan and ndependence are still the top two earns in the Associated Press Kansas High School football poll »ut Salina takes over the No. 3 ipot this week.

By SKIPPER PATRICK Associated Press Sports Writer Joe Romig of Colorado and Dan Celoni of Iowa State are setting a torrid pace for guards for regional and possible All America recognition this season. Romig, a 200 pound senior from Lakewood, Colo., who gobbled up numerous all star honors last season, has reached his peak efficiency after a slow start because of pre • season practice injuries. The scholarly linebacker made numerous tackles and blocked well in Colorado's 13-0 victory over Kansas State last Saturday. Celoni, 210, Milwaukee, Wis., senior, had one of his better days against Missouri last week although his team was beaten 13-7. "That Celoni is a great one," commented Missouri coach Dan Devine. "We haven't blocked him yet." The AP's District 5 all America GALLON Yes, SAM Has It. . . Prestone and Zerex SAM'S $<l79 TIKE & SUPPLY, INC. Ph. CH 2-4436 4th and Main SAM MOTT, Mgr. SAM Has SNOW TIRES To Fit COMPACT Cars Board also cited Paul Henley, Missouri; Elvin Basham, Kansas, and Gary Cutsinger, Oklahoma State, as other guards who played well Saturday. Other linemen given lop recognition included veteran centers Wayne Lee, Oklahoma, who made more than a dozen tackles against Kansas and Walt Klinker, Colorado's strong boy; Ed Blaine, Missouri tackle; Benny Boydston, Kansas end; Frank Parker, Oklahoma State tackle and Art Leonard, Wichita center. John Hadl, Kansas quarterback- halfback, had another good day against Oklahoma. His 30 • yard pass to end Larry Allen accounted for the game's only touchdown. Also cited were Bill (Thunder) Thornton, Nebraska halfback who rushed for more than 100 yards for the third straight week; Bill McFarland. Oklahoma State fullback and Bill Strangarone, Wichita quarterback. Gorilla Coach Was Glad The Other Team Scored PITTSBURG, Kan. (AP)-Coach 'arnie Smith's 13th football sea- on at Pittsburg State College promises to be anything but un- ucky. His Gorillas are unbeaten and untied after six games and have cored 190 points while yielding only 7. That's made them the No. . team in the nation in both the Associated Press and NAIA small college polls. The only team to cross the Gorillas' goal line is Fort Hays (Kan) State. Fort Hays jolted Pittsburg fans by scoring with apparent ease in the opening minutes here last Saturday. That TO, Smith figures, was "one of the best things that ever happened to us." It removed the Claassen Picks Golden Buffaloes Over Oklahoma By HAROLD CLAASSEN Associated Press Sports Writer NEW YORK (AP) - There's nothing like money in the bank —unless it is in your pocket. And a $1 bet on each of the 57 games a week ago would have netted you $31 on the basis of 44 correct picks and 13 losses. With no assurance that this week's choices will be as profitable. Michigan State over Indiana: It is the Spartans homecoming game Ensley Takes Fishing Lead c? GROVE, Okla. (AP) - Harold Ensley, of Kansas City, Tuesday took the lead in defense of his championship in the World Series of sport fishing contest. Ensley, who conducts fishing and hunting shows on KCMO-TV in Kansas City, landed seven black bass weighing lO 1 /^ pounds to boost his point total to 51.74. He had scored only 6.54 points in opening competition Monday. Joe Kriger, Tulsa, started today's competition in second place with 23.28 points. Following were J. B. Gregory, Tulsa, 20.61; Don Stofer, Lansing, Mich., 15.32, and Jim Rogers, Lamar, Mo., 13.60. Shoots 64 In Pro-Am LAS VEGAS, Nev. (AP) - An 8-under-par 64 by Bob Harrison of Pacific Palisades, Calif., has placed him in the van for the $19,500 Sahara Pro-Am Golf Tournament. Harrison fired an eagle and seven birdies Tuesday for two 32s over the Las Vegas municipal course, par for which is 72. Half the field played at the Paradise Valley Country Club course. The players switched courses today. Tied for second place are Juan Rodriguez of Forado Beach, Puerto Rico, and Jerry Steelsmith of Glendale, Calif., with 65s. Al Balding of Toronto and Billy Maxwell of Dallas had 66s. Doug Sanders was 6-over-par for 16 holes when darkness stopped him. He will play off his first round this morning. and that should be enough to keep top-ranked Michigan State alert even though the Hoosiers will be at full strength for the first time in a month. Mississippi over Vanderbilt: Old Miss has permitted only 13 points pressure of defending an unsullied *oal line. With the pressure off, the Gor- Has smashed back for six touchdowns and a 41-7 victory. What makes them go? Phil Vogrin, a 198-pound junior from Kansas City, is the quarterback and leading ground gainer. He's completed more than 50 per cent of his passes and amassed 744 yards passing and running. Rounding out the backfield art Gary Snade, 195, of Lockwood, Mo.; Bill Presson, 163, of Kansas City; and Dick Colliver, 174, of Coffeyvillc, Kan. All are seniors. They have gained 362, 372 and 363 yards respectively. The top defensive men havtj been Bill Beeson, 200-pound senior from Coffeyville, middle guard, and Jerry Archer, 245-pound junior from Sarcoxie, Mo., linebacker. In the defensive secondary, standouts have been Gene John, 1R9. sophomore from Burlington, Kan.; Chuck Sturdevant, 190, junior of Neosho, Mo.; and Mike Riley, 147-pound Kansas City senior. in five games while piling up 157.
