Actual Meeting 7 Weeks Away Saver - Roland Duel Still in Talk Stage By JIM VAN VALKENBURG Associated Press Sports Writer The traditional Missouri-Kansas game is seven weeks away, but border warfare alre«d; is under with fans arguing the rela live merits of Hie Ja/hawkerj' Gale Sayers and the Tigers, Johnny Roland, two of the best sophomore running backs in Big Eight football in many years,. In some ways thc.v appear to be much alike. Kach is; a modest 19 year-old who played high speed in the open than Roland. But the Mizzou rookie, two inches taller at (i-foot-2, may run with more power and balance and is better at knifing through small holes. Roland, from Corpus Chrisli, Tex., also is a better ^usser, although both throw just enough to keep the defense honest. Roland has hit two of six passes, one for a touchdown. Sayers, who was bor. in Wichita and moved DO Omaha before school foo'tball in another state. I school'age, ran the 100-yard dash Kach seems to know by instinct I in 9.7 seconds in high school and • • • ' broadjumped 25 feet 2 inches. Starting the season 15 pounds underweight at 175, Sayers now is up to 187 and apparently as strong as ever. Sayers slashed 122 yards against Colorado last ueek and coach Jack Mitchell said: "This was his best game. Our most effective play was just give the ball to Gale." the split second movese which many barks never learn. Often it's hard to believe they are rookies At their present pace, both Sayers and Roland will have close to 1,000 yards rushing apiece when they meet in the 71st KU- MU game at Columbia on Nov. 24. Roland leads the Big Eight in rushing with 310 yards for 55 carries. Savers is just a yard behind at 309 for 52 trips. This means both are averaging better than 100 yards a game. Sayers may own more pure Roland, on the other hand, had his most spectacular day in the opener at California, scoring three touchdowns and gaining 171 yards including a 58-yarder which br;."- open the game. But he fumbled STAG MEMBERS 8 GUESTS American twice and Coach Devine said: "When he learns to hang 'onto the ball, he'll be real good." Another factor — often over 1 looked—is that both boys play for two of the most conservative, safety-first coaches in college football. Devine and Mitchell seldom gamble. When either does, it's news. Almost all Big Eight clubs are beset with injuries and are shifting personnel to fill the holes. Iowa State's top pass receiver, Dick Limerick, became ill. Ken Tiger, Kansas co-captain and one of the league's best guards, re- injured his right knee. Mitchell's next two guards, Mickey W.":.r and Duke Collins, . on the doubtful list. At Missouri, Devine was concerned about his team's blocking. Ends George Seals and John Sevcik remained on the doubtful list for the Kansas State game. Doug Weaver at K-Stat promoted five men to the first team, mostly because of injuries. Mantle Glum About Batting NEW YORK (AP) - Mickey Mantle glumly surveyed his .133 j World Series batting average today and decided he was too eager to hit his first home run. Going into the fifth game of the series against the San Francisco Giants, the New York Yankee center fielder and team leader has collected a paltry two hits in 15 times at bat and not an RBI. But he's not hitting the panic button and neither is Yank Manager, Ralph Houk. "I guess," said Mantle, "my trouble is that I am too anxious to hit my first home run. I know I have struck out three times when I should have walked." That 'would indicate he's been pressing, trying to jjet a piece of the ball and in the end being outfoxed by Giant pitchers who refuse to give him anything good to hit. "You've got to give credit to the Giants pitchers," he observed. FAN FARE fly Walt Ditzea f A*MS5»<=. LET U5 HUNT ON LaCrosse Leopards Have Eyes on WKEA Grid Title SCOTT CITY — LaCrosse High I squad has shown sli'gh. improve— which won jut 4 of 27 games j ment each season. But the four in the three seasons before 1962 j win s this year already matches — appears headed for the football championship of the far- flung Western Kansas Education Assn. Coach Jim Lewis Leopards have racked four straight wins in impressive fashion, and only Jetmore appears able to halt the LaCrosse title march. LaCrosse victims, in order, have been Ellis (by 20-0), Dighton (26-6), Ness City (25-0), and Scott City (26-12), Ellis is a non- league foe, but th e l as t three games have been in WKEA play. The Scott victory was a big one, for the Beavers had. been rated highly in WKEA circles. LaCrosse still has league games the total for all of the previous three seasons. Champions in the WKEA football have run in cycles in recent years. Dighton won the banner in 1957 and shared it with Leoti in 1958. Scott won the crown in 1959 and tied Ness City in 1960. Ness was last year's champ with an all j winnmg league record. But the Eagles have only a tie to show in four games this fall. Scott is 2-1-1 overall. The Beavers tied Oakley (7-7), lost to LaCrosse, and beat Tribune (26-7) and Leoti (13-0). Jetmore is 2-0 in the league with wins over Tribune (21-0) and Dighton (7-6). left with Tribune, Jetmore, and I But the Longhorns have dropped Leoti (on Nov. '9) could both their non-league starts by Leoti cause trouble, but the Jetmore game (at Jetmore on Oct. 26) will probably decide the title. LaCrosse had only a 1-8-0 record in 1959. In 1960, the Leopards moved up to 1-7-1. Last fall the record was 2-6-1 — so the 6-0 margins to Kinsley and undefeated Cimarron. Ness tied Leoti (7-7) but lost to WaKeeney (7-6), LaCrosse (25-0) and Victoria (32-0). Dighton is 2-2 overall. Hornet victims have been th e Garden City High B team (39-0) and Hugoton (19-13). Losses have been to LaCrosse (26-6) and Jetmore (7-6). Leoti is 1-2-1 against a tough slate. The Indians lost to all-winning Ulysses (7-0) and Scott (13-0), tied Ness (7-7) and beat Sharon Springs (26-0). Tribune has scored just one touchdown in losing all four outings: to Sharon Springs (7-0), Scott (26-7), Jetmore (21-0), and Syracuse (33-0). Friday night, three league games are scheduled. Dighton is at Scott for their tradill^al "big" rivalry; Leoti is Jttmore's Homecoming foe, and Ness goes to Tribune, LaCross e is at non- leagua Kinsley.
