Mina Is A Man Without Country JACKSON, Mich. (AP) - The Rev. Mina E. Mina is a man without a country—not by choice, but by circumstance. His wife and three children are In the same predicament. Poor Passes Made Him A Receiver IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP)-Iowa end Cloyd Webb says a poor passer in high school helped him become a standout college receiver, i After flabbing seven tosses for 104 yards and two touchdowns against Wisconsin last Saturday, Webb, 19, was asked how he did as a prep pass catcher. "I didn't catch so many, but every catch I made was sensational," he replied. "Our passer couldn't throw the ball at all. Any time you caught one it had to be sensational." Several of Webb's catches in the Hawkeyes' 47-15 defeat of Wisconsin also were sensational. His play earned him the football lineman of the week award by The Associated Press. Webb's catching of passes tossed by quarterback Matt Szykowny surprised Wisconsin Coach Milt Bruhn, who said: "I never dreamed Iowa had such a pro- like passing combination." Webb, a 190-pounder, is deceptively fast because of his loping gait and was in the clear for several catches against the Badgers. But he used his powerful hands to pull his touchdown passes out of the hands of defenders for touchdown plays covering 11 and 28 yards. Web also was a defensive standout. An Egyptian, the Rev. Mr. Mina now is associate minister of Jackson's First Congregational church. His wife is Chinese. Their plight began five years ago when they met on the campus of Bethel College at Newton, Kan. where both were studying on scholarships. Romance blossomed into marriage. The Rev. Mr. Mina (pronounced mean-ah) came to the United States in 1953 to study chemical engineering and planned to return to Egypt in 1956. Mrs. Mina fled the Chinese mainland to Formosa in 1949 and came to the United States in 1954. With student visas runing out and the. prospecte-«| being returned to separate homelands, the couple started steps to gain citizenship. Rules governing admission of foreign students provide that a student who attempts to gain citizenship here violates his or her status and is subject to deportation on 15 days notice. "We were pretty insecure," the minister said, "having no status either as Americans, Egyptians or Chinese and not knowing what would happen." Four times immigration authorities told the Minas their time was up, but they managed to avoid deportation. Only last month to Minnesota congressman managed to obtain permanent residency status for the Minas. Now after five years they will be eligible for citizenship. Mina, reared a Christian in the Coptic Church, turned, from a planned career in chemical engineering to the ministry after working with Dr. Frank Laubach, a missionary known for his literacy work among the uneducated in foreign lands. Mrs. Mina was reared a Christian, also, in the United Christian Church of China. Her parents came to the United States in 1958.

Packers Best Ball Packers NEW YORK (AP)-The Green Bay Packers have taken over as the No. 1 offensive team in the National Football League, breaking the San Francisco 49ers' hold on the league's two major statistical departments. The bulk of the credit must go to George Halas, owner and coach of the Chicago Bears, his coaching staff, and the players who carried out the assignments in the Bears' 31-0 victory over San Francisco Sunday. While Chicago's 5-2-4 defense was limiting the 49ers to only 132 yards gained, the Packers were piling it up against Minnesota in a 33-7 rout and took over the top spot in total offense with 2,156 gained to 2,142 for San Francisco, league statistics showed today. The 49ers, despite their overwhelming loss, remained the top defensive club with 1,374 yards given up to 1,435 for the runner- up St. Louis Cardinals. The Cards have been the toughest team to run against, allowing a low of 443 yards in six games.
