THE OTTAWA HERALD Saturday, October 28, 19fil Brown's Magic Toe Helps OU To 17th Straight Win McPHERSON-Mike Brown, Ottawa University end, caught two touchdown passes and kicked two field goals and four extra points as Ottawa routed McPherson, 340. in a Kansas Conference football game here last night. This was the 17th consecutive victory for league leading Ottawa which has seven wins this season. McPherson now has two victories and five defeats. Ottawa took a 13-0 first period lead on Brown's 15 and 28-yard field goals, a 28-yard pass from Ken Smart to the big end, and the extra point, also by Brown. He also attempted a 38-yard field goal, which hit the crossbar and was ruled no good. "We tried to pass, but the wind was strong, and they had dox defense to slow the defending champions. The winners broke loose again in the third period as McPherson battled the gusty wind and misty rain. John McAninch and John Krebbs, Ottawa tailbacks, scored on identical plays over right tackle, McAninch's touchdown coming from 12 yards out, while Krebbs scored from the seven. But the most spectacular play of the evening came in the final quarter. With Ottawa on its own 48-yard line, Jerry Harshaw, the Braves' No. 2 quarterback, completed a 10-yard jump pass to Brown, who raced down the middle for the final score. five completed passes in 11 attempts. McPherson picked up 145 yards rushing and 19 on four of 1C passes for'a total of 164. The Ottawans capitalized on the interception of two enemy passes, a fumble and on three attempts to carry the ball on fourth down. McPherson threatened only once, this coming near the end of the first half when it moved to the Ottawa 23. Also in the second period, Ottawa got as far as the loser's 18 only to be stopped. Statistics: our ground game bottled up," ! Mixing its running and passing Dick Peters, OU Coach said of | attack during the second half, the second period.

"I'm speaking only for myself," said Ernie McCoy, Penn State athletic director, "but I am concerned about the helmet we have been using, and some changes may be required." Already this season four collegians, two semipro players and 15 high school boys—a total of 21—have died, most as a result of injuries. "We haven't come to any official conclusions yet," said Mc- Coy. "We are gathering the facts. In fact, we have offered to take over some of the research that is being conducted by the coaches' committee on the subject. McCoy said that he thinks the plastic helmet, and the protruding face guard have resulted in added danger. "Furthermore," he said, "the way the boys tackle these days doesn't help. Almost all tackling is around the chest, with the hope of causing a fumble. That can snap the neck back. "I remember in the days of Fielding Yost, he would get terribly upset if we tackled anywhere over the knees. How often do you see that today?" McCoy said that his committe* had taken a survey two years ago on injuries. "We found some interesting things," he observed. "For one, we found that the biggest percentage of injuries occurred in the begining of the third period of games. That would indicate that the boys have not been warming up enough before the second half. Perhaps we should make a compulsory rule that they warm up for five minutes. "Then we found that most of the seasonal injuries took place in the first three weeks of practice. Perhaps the conclusion here is that thre has been too much head-knocking at the start before the lads are properly trained." Slaughter By Lions, 46-0 Break Ground For Met Stadium NEW YORK (AP)-Ground wi be broken today for the $18 mil lion, 55,000-seat Flushing Meadow stadium that will be the hom park starting in 1963 for the New York Mets of the National Base ball League and the New Yor Titans of the American Football League. The stadium will be located on the site of the 1939-40 World's Fail-, and the site of the World's Fair planned for 1964 — about a 20-minute trip by car from mid- tcrsTi Manhattan. The architects figure construction of the three-tiered, circular stadium will take at least 14 months. The Mets, managed by Casey Stengel, will make their debut next spring and will play their games in the Polo Grounds, home of the Giants before they moved to San Francisco. The Titans have played their home games at the Polo Grounds since the AFL began in 1960. The Lawrence Lions, out to regain the prestige they lost when beaten by Manhattan and Topeka, dealt Ottawa High's Cyclones their worst licking of the season last night on Cook Field at Ottawa University. The Lions called time out with only two seconds left in the game to gain time for another touch- Cyclones appeared helpless i times in the second period to| Lawrence's rushing gain of 511 against the powerful Northeast Kansas League leader. Paul Stephens provided the thrill of the game for Ottawa fans when, on the 49-yard march, he got loose on a play originating at Ottawa's 31-yard line and ran 34 yards to the Lawrence 35 before being bounced out of bounds. Halfback Gary Ray was the down and extra point which gave j star for the Lions, scoring four them a 46-0 victory. With the exception of a 49-yard march that put them on the Lawrence 18 before it was halted, the Sooner High School Teams Beat Some Of Kansas' Best TOPEKA (AP) - One fact seemed painfully clear in Kansas high school football this week—it just doesn't measure up to the brand played by Oklahoma high schools. Wichita Southeast, undefeated Hayden in a Saturday night game, j streak, 13-0. Herington upset pre- Lawrence, ranked 9th, defeated Ottawa, 46-0. and ranked 4th in the Associated Press Kansas high school football poll, was the first to feel the lash.

Friday night, Lawton, 52 and j ranked No. 5 in 0 k 1 ahoma, trounced Wichita East, the No. 7 Kansas team with a 4-1 record, ^"v- .'• In the meantime, Manhattan, the top team in the Kansas poll, rolled to its 7th victory of the season, 31-0 over Abilene. Second - ranked Independence was idle. Salina, No. 3, had little trouble downing Emporia, 41-6. Coffeyville, No. 5, trounced Pittsburg, 64-0. Sixth - ranked Garden City wrapped up at least a tie for the West Central League championship with a 20-0 victory over Great Bend. Topeka, No. 8, meets winless City, sharing 10th with Wyandotte, won a Thursday game from Kapaun, 27-6, but Wyandotte was upset Friday by Ward, 28-7. Among the bitter surprises Friday were defeats suffered by Caldwell and Hillsboro. Mulvane ended a 16-game Caldwell winning viously undefeated Hillsboro, 26-14. Results of games involving other teams mentioned in this week's Associated Press poll included: Derby 20, El Dorado 14; Leavenworth 41, Atchison 6; Fredonia 53, Burlington 0; Wichita North 47, Topeka West 6; Phillipsburg 33, Palco 6; Junction City 40, Chapman 13.

A game protector in northeastern Kansas was approaching a suspected fishing law violator. He spied the man fishing and drove his car up on the bank behind the fisherman. So far, so good; the fisherman had not heard him. He stepped out of his car and put his hand over the door to close it quietly. He had done this many times before, but for some reason, this time he slam- mod the door — with his fingers in it. He looked around at the fisherman and was met with a knowing smile.

If you have an apartment or room for rent or property for sale, start your advertisement with the location and city in which it is located. 2 BE CLEAR. Readers respond more quickly and favorably when given complete or definite details. Be sure 'to include price in ads, whenever possible — it is the consumer's "most wanted" information. 3 MAKE IT EASY for the reader-prospect to reach you. Always insert your telephone number or your name and address. If you do not have regular hours, give a preferred time to have prospects contact you. 4—THE GREATEST READER ATTENTION can be secured for your advertisement by using consecutive insertions. Play safe—a 6-day order is best and coata less! There are also very special monthly rates for those who are desirous of keeping their name or offer before the public every day; you can stop your ad in the event of results and then you pay only for the days it is published at the rate earned. 5—PLACE YOURSELF in the reader's position and ask yourself what you would like to know (about your offer). The answer you give will make a good classified Want Ad. 6—WANT ADS THAT FAIL to bring satisfaction do so, not through any lack of readership, but because they are often carelessly worded and do not contain enough information to get prompt action. 7—TO PLACE YOUR AD in the OTTAWA HERALD simply phone CH 2-4700 and an experienced and courteous ad writer will help.
