THE OTTAWA HERALD Thursday. Nov. 2, 1961 Buffs Well Armed For Tiger Hunt BOULDER, Colo. (AP) — Colorado's football forces, undefeated in five games, will go Missouri Tiger hunting Saturday with every weapon ready. The powerful Buffalo squad is 100 per cent healthy and means to be that way at kickoff time, 2 p.m. MST. The game likely will draw close to 43,000 fans and will be televised. Coach Sonny Grandelius said "It's going to take a real good team to beat us." The Buffaloes feel a bid to the Orange Bowl rides on the Missouri game, even though they still have Iowa State and Nebraska to beat in Big Eight Conference play. On offense Colorado will lead off with one sophomore, halfback Ted Somerville, and three seniors quarterback Gale Weidner, halfback Teddy Woods and fullback Loren Schweninger in the backfield. Weidner, whose long throws bombed Kansas into submission in the final quarter last month, leads the Big Eight passers with 31 completions in 75 attempts good for 437 yards. Woods, one of the nation's top Hornung Still Free To Play CHICAGO (AP) - National Football League scoring champion Paul Hornung of the Green Bay Packers is free to play football the next two weeks pending results of a special examination to determine if he is physically fit for the Army. Hornung is expected to leave the U.S. Navy Hospital at Great Lakes, 111., today. Fifth Army headquarters announced Wednesday that he would not be called to military service until Nov. 14. He has orders from the 14th U.S. Army Corps headquarters at Minneapolis to report to Ft. Riley, Kan., for duty, assignment to the 86th Engineer ^ Company, "providing he is fountf physically qualified." Hornung, who is suffering a pinched neck nerve which has sidelined him on occasions, will be available for duty with the de- tending Western Division champion .Packers for games with the Baltimore Colts and the Chicago Bears the next two Sundays. Bud's Son Best Punt Returner NEW YORK (AP)-Duke junior Jay Wilkinson, son of Oklahoma Coach Bud Wilkinson, used a fine performance against North Carolina State to take over the major college lead in punt returns, the NCAA Service Bureau reported today. Wilkinson returned five punts 160 yards, including an 82-yard touchdown gallop, against North Carolina State last week, boasting his season total of 252 yards on 12 punt returns. Wilkinson also owns the best average, 21 yards per runback, among those making a comparable number of returns. collegiate quart e r m i 1 e'r s, has earned to run with savvy as well as speed this season—isn't bang- ng into his own men as he was last year. In the line the Buffs' top performers are Jerry Hillebrand, 241, right end; 199-pound Joe Romig at right guard, and 200-pound Walt tClinker at center. Ken Blair, 190, will start at left end, Dan Grimm, 233, at left tackle, Ralph Heck, 201, at left guard, and Bill Frank, 232, at right tackle. "We know we are running up against one of the strongest defensive teams in the country,' Grandelius said. "Missouri has a great interior line." "There's nothing wrong with its offense, either. The scouts tell me we're going to have to watch the Missouri sweeps, the sweep pass and the fullback into the center. One thing that especially ticklet Sonny about CU's 22-14 conquest of Oklahoma last week was the way the team rolled on the grounc It netted 291 yards runing for the best single game mark in Grandelius' three seasons here. Before the game, there had been mutterings about the Buffalo rushing at tack. Prior to the Oklahoma victory Colorado beat Oklahoma State 24-0 Kansas 20-19, Miami 9-7 and Kan sas State 13-0. The weatherman's long-range forecast raised the definite possi bility today of precipitation for this match between the two highly ranked powers of the Big Eight Colorado, 8th in the AP poll, and lOth-ranked Missouri are the lead ing contenders for the Orange Bowl as the conference represen tative. The Orange Bowl Commit tee will be on hand to appraise the two teams. With odds-makers calling the game an even match, most observers are giving consideration to the kicking abilities of Colorado' Hillebrand and Missouri halfback Bill Tobin. Hillebrand and Tobin have each made good on seven of nine conversion kicks. Hillebrand has booted three field goals—from 54, 35 and 25 yards. Tobin has two field goals from 32 and 26 yards. Although tied by California, Missouri is unbeaten in five games. Braves Lose Val Finney, Face Bethany STOPPED — John Thompson.

(AP) - The man who caught Babe Ruth's 60th home run ball wanted to trade it for the Babe's bat or glove but his uncle would not let him. H. D. Siegel is happv today that his uncle was so stubborn. Siegel was 14 on that eventful day in Seplemljer. 1927. when Ruth powered (me of Tom Zachary's pitches into the right field stand close to the foul line. There was a mad scramble for the ball, and young Siegel came up with it. "We knew there was something kind of special about it but didn't take it too seriously," Siegel said. "After all. it was just another home run by Babe Ruth. "After the gnmc my uncle. Harry Valencia, and I went up to the Yankee dressing room where he got all of the Yankees to autograph the ball except Jumpin' Joe Dugan. I don't know how we missed him. "While we were there, Babe offered me a glove or a but for the ball. I really wanted that glove. It was a beautiful white one with four fingers. It was left-handed, too, but I didn't care." Siegel said his uncle refused to return the ball and finally gave it to the youngster's father instead. "I never got that ball back until two years after I was married," Siegel said. "Actually, it's pretty lucky for me thai my uncle kept it. The ball probably would have ended up in a sandlot game like several others we caught at the stadium." Siegel, a Savannah clothing store manager, keeps the ball encased in a plastic cocoon mounted on a miniature baseball diamond in his home. "I have never tried to sell the ball or capitalize on it," he said. "Ami I don't intend to," he added. That ball is mine and it's not for sale. A few years back I wrote the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, N.Y., and asked if they would be interested in it. They replied yes. I intend to give it to my .son, and he can do with it as he wishes." Coaches Could Be Penalized NEW YORK (AP)-Three new rules and a code of conduct for coaches will be in effect when the college basketball seasons opens next month. The changes were recommended by the National Association of Basketball Coaches and adopted by the National Basketball Com- mitee of the U.S. and Canada last March. They will: 1. Eliminate free throws when a foul is called against a player on offense and in control of the ball. The fouled team will be given possession of the ball out of bounds as is now done in the professional leagues. 2. Stop the clock after every violation in order to give coaches greater opportunity to make substitutions. 3. Create a neutral and buffer zone along the free throw lane to searate the first and second players by a foot when they line up for free throws. The rule makers felt this would tend to lessen shoving. Under the new conduct act, officials are instructed to penalize coaches or players on the bench who persist in stomping, throwing towels or committing other acts considered unsportsmanlike.

Trailing 4442 at halftime, the Saints took over in the third quarter. The rebounding of Mike Farmer and Gene Brown made the difference. San Francisco held almost exclusive control of the backboards in the third quarter and in most cases limited the Steers to one shot at a time. Whitey Bell, 6-foot-l-guard from North Carolina State, led the Saints' scoring with 30 points. Crushed Stone Govt.

LOUIS (AP)-Ben Kerner, angry over the 2-4 record of his St. Louis Hawks in the National Basketball Association, gave them a chewing out behind closed doors Wednesday. There are rumors the Hawks are looking for a backliner, a move possibly designed to shake the complacency out of the perennial NBA Western Division champions. Wednesday's meeting was the first of its kind in many years and indicated Kerner's concern over the antics of his athletes. He said later "I told them how I felt about Tuesday night's performance," when the St. Louisans lost 107-90 to Syracuse. "I also said that Clyde Lovellette had been taking a lot of guff that belonged to everyone. And 1 told them it was about time we got our house in order," Kerner declared.

He added, that both are "doubtful" starters. Replacing Pemberton on defense and offense, respectively, will be Clarence Whitesell and Rober Moore, Peters said. Dennis Powers is expected to start in place of Schuyler.
