THE OTTAWA HERALD Thursday, October 26, 1961 McPherson Next In Braves' Path , Under normal conditions, Dick Peters, coach of the Ottawa University Braves, is a calm, smil- mg fellow. But these aren't normal conditions. 1 Peters' Braves, currently perched atop the Kansas Conference with six wins and no losses on ft 16-game winning streak, meet McPherson there tomorrow night. ; The Braves, who last week 'Gorillas Still On Top ; By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS 1 Pittsburg (Kan.) State's un- Tieaten-untied Gorillas yielded itheir first points of the season but detained their hold on first place today in The Associated Press' weekly small college football poll.

So far this season, the Braves lave gained 1,434 yards on the ground and added 470 passing for L.904 or an average of slightly more than 317. Defensively, Ottawa has given Is opponents 1,048 yards, 698 rushing and 330 passing for an average of about 171 a game. McPherson, a team which has shown little this season, has won two games and lost four. But Peters feels that his boys are not "up" for the McPherson contest. "You can't blame 'em," he said. "Look what they did to Southwestern." He added, howev er, that tenacious McPherson was beaten only 7-0 in the last four minutes of the Baker game Sat urday. "We haven't scrimmaged more than five or six plays all week,' he continued. "It's getting lat in the season, and I don't wan to take any more chances on in juries." Missing practices this week be cause of injury was Bruce Pernberton, 210-pound senior tackle, who has been bothered all season by a leg injury. He will be replaced tomorrow by Roger Moore and Clarence Whitesell on offense and defense, respective- iy. Practice last night was spent on defense against the spread passing attack used by the Bulldogs.

(AP) - Harold Ensley of Kansas City caught only one small fish in the World Series of sports fishing Wednesday but retained his lead with a total of 58 points. He got .67 of a point for the one fish. Other leaders in the competition on Grand Lake include: Joe Krieger, Tulsa, 40.03 points; Otis Rhoden, Muskogee, Okla., 32.61; Dick Anderson, Quincy, 111., 21.5; J. B.

He never appeared to need any aid on the held. In his sophomore and junior seasons he was recognized as one of the few triple-threat backs in modern day football. The Jayhawks opened this sea- son in a night game against Texas Christian University. John admits that he found it hard to see that night. He wondered if contact lenses might help.

Crimson Tide Defense Stern NEW YORK (AP)-Alabama's stern defense is operating at a pace that has been matched only twice in the last 16 years, the NCAA Service Bureau said today. The Crimson Tide has given up only 44.6 yards per game on the ground and 107.8 over-all, leading the nation's major colleges in both categories. The NCAA said that only two teams in the past 16 years have presented equivalent credentials at mid-season. In 1959, Syracuse limited its first five opponents to 28 yards a game on the ground and 100.2 over-all. Twelve years earlier, Penn State allowed its first five opponents only 10.2 yards rushing and 69 over-all. I PREPARE TODAY !

(AP)- Nebraska's Cornhuskers, chastened 14-6 by Oklahoma State last week, take on Missouri at Columbia Saturday and the concensus hereabouts is that it'll take one of those heroic comebacks to tame the undefeated Tigers. Not since 1956 has Nebraska managed to win over Missouri. In the last three meetings the Huskers haven't even scored. At the halfway mark of the current campaign, the Huskers are even-steven at 2-2-1, with wins ver North Dakota and Kansas Itate, losses to Syracuse and Ok- ahoma State and a skin-of-teeth ie with Arizona. It's so-so showing but Nebraska under Coach Bill Jennings has dis- ilayed a peculiar talent for com- ng up with the big one when east expected. To the Huskers in 1959 fell the lonor of inflicting on Oklahoma its ! irst conference loss in 74 games. L,ast year, enroute to a mediocre 1-6 record, the Huskers shocked »th Texas and Army. ''Our boys have gotten off the floor and provided some real sur- irises in the past," Jennings said. "These have happeed whe it seemed least likely. We're hoping r or that again Saturday." Jennings indicated he is not much worried about sagging morale after last week's error-beset performance at Stillwater. "The big problem is getting the team physically ready," he added. "We're starting to feel the pain of three or four tough games." Even at that it looks like only Sophomore Guards Ed Micheil and Corwin Bishop will be out of the Tiger game. Mitchell, a 258- pound starter, was sidelined last week with a knee injury. Bishop, a 250-pounder, twisted an ankle in practice this week. Bob Jones, starting left tackle who twisted a knee in the Oklahoma State game, will be available for play. In the Husker backfield, Bill (Thunder) Thornton has emerged as the showpiece. The 200-pound junior halfback has gained 398 yards in 67 carries for a 5.9 average. His yardage total is topped in the conference only by Dave Hoppmann of Iowa State, with 446 on 132 tries. I've never seen anyone with such an intense desire to get a yard—up their backs, over them, around them, anywhere — and to win," Coach Jennings said. "If a coach ever had 11 Thorntons, he'd never have a worry." Thornton, bruised and battered, has been taking it easy this week but expects to be ready Saturday. New Cage Loop Near Kickof f CHICAGO (AP) - The new American Basketball League opens its 320-game championship schedule Friday night with the Los Angeles Jets facing the San Francisco Saints in the San Francisco Cow Palace. The eight-team circuit, whose commissioner is Abe Saperstein, owner-coach of the Harlem Globe Trotters, will have each team playing 80 games and will be split into Western and Eastern divisions. The Jets, Saints, Kansas City Steers and Hawaii Chiefs are grouped in the Western section and the Pittsburgh Wrens, Washington Tapers, Cleveland Piper; and Chicago Majors are in the Eastern.

In these four games Had showed only occasional flashes o he form that had made him one of the top backs in the nation. H rushed for 143 yards on 58 car ies. As a passer, however, John ap reared to have lost his touch. H attempted 30 and completed 10 Just a year ago he ranked No. n the Big Eight Conference, com pleting 43 of 87 for 562 yards. On Tuesday, Oct. 17, Had aicked up a pair of contac lenses. He used them for the fir: time in the game against Okla tioma. "I thought I could see,'' sai John, "but it's amazing what | I've been missing out there. I think it's definitely going to help my passing." It would appear they did. Hadl tried 13 passes and completed 7 For 91 yards including a 30-yard touchdown toss to Larry Allen. The Jayhawks went on to defeat Oklahoma 10-0 and stay in the running for the Big Eight title. John would take exception to anyone suggesting that the difficulty he encountered in seeing contributed to his poor start. He says "it wasn't eyesight that made me play so badly before. I really don't know what it was but I hope I can avoid ever going through that again. I was terrible and it hurt the team. That's what really upsets me." What is a "switchback?" That's the designation for Had! and Rodger McFarland. Coach Jack Mitchell is alternating the two at quarterback-halfback. Rodger directs the team on one series of plays and Hadl takes over on another, s o m etimes exchanging places on each down. The Jayhawks play Oklahoma State at Lawrence Saturday. They must win in order to remain in the running for the Big Eight crown. Wanted Toe 9 For Class CLEVELAND (AP)-"He looks more like a "banker than a football slayer," commented Cleveland Coach Paul Brown in jest before he start of the season. "We >rought him back because he adds lass to the club and looks so jood sitting around hotel lobbies." He was talking about Lou (The Toe) Groza, the Browns' remarkable 7-year-old kicking specialist, who has come out of a one-year retirement for his 15th season in >rofessional football. The "banker"—actually he runs profitable insurance business- already has used his golden toe 'or clutch field goals to provide [ourth-period decisions in half of Cleveland's four triumphs. Freed of the gruelling offensive ackle duties he handled in prior years, Groza is kicking like young colt. His accurate boots nave registered three pointers on 11 of 13 attempts. The only misses were from 42 and 50 yards. He also has made good on 14 of Ifi conversions. Groza kicked three field goals and a trio of extra points in the Browns' 30-28 decision at Pittsburgh Sunday. The final field goal came with 2:49 left and sealed the verdict. A month ago Groza cracked a tie with 35 seconds on the clock by connecting on a 19- yarder for a 20-17 victory over St. Louis, this Sunday's opponent for Cleveland. In .other action Sunday, Dallas will be at New York, Chicago plays at Baltimore, San Francisco is at Pittsburgh, Philadelphia goes to Washington, Minnesota is at Green Bay and Los Angeles is host to Detroit.

Rodriguez and Lema had 134s and Bob Shave Jr., Jerry Steelsmith and Billy Maxwell were tied for Rose Bowl Wide Open By BOB MYERS Associated Press Sports Writer LOS ANGELES (AP)-The road to the 1962 Pasadena Rose Bowl is wide open. That goes for any of the five schools in the Athletic Association of Western Universities, one of which will be the host at the annual New Year's Day classic. And the door is open to any school in the nation which might be interested and is deemed Rose Bowl quality. The AAWU, or so-called Big Five, successor to the late Pacific Coast Conference, in effect owns the post-season game. The AAWU championship race at this stage is strictly a toss-up. AAWU executive director Tom Hamilton recently reiterated that the 1962 game and the invited team will be handled in the same manner as a year ago. There is no formal or informal agreement with the Big Ten. Minnesota was invited to the last Pasadena engagement simply because the Big Five and their championship team, the Washington Huskies, felt the Golden Gophers would provide a good contest. As matters stand in the Big Ten, one of its schools can accept a Rose Bowl invitation. But it must be invited. The same open-door policy applies around the country.
