THE OTTAWA HERALD Friday, November 3, 1961 Top Teams In Key Conference Battles By JACK CLARY Associated Press Sports Writer Before the beginning of the college football season, Nov. 4 was pencilled off as the day of decision—and nothing has changed as the nation's top teams battle each other Saturday in key conference battles that may also have a lot to say about the post-season bowl spots. Michigan State the nation's No. 1 team and undefeated in five games, meets once-beaten but mighty Minnesota in a Big Ten battle, while Mississippi, equally as mighty and ranked second nationally takes on its old nemesis Louisiana State in the Southeastern Conference's biggest game of the year. That is just a sample and to get things under way, resurgent University of Miami (3-3) tackles the Georgia Bulldogs tonight. The * * * Hurricanes at last have soph quarterback George Mira back in top physical shape. He missed two of Miami's losses but came back last week in so-so condition to help upset North Carolina 10-0. The Bulldogs, also 3-3, are a bunch of opportunists. Their three victories have been by the margin of Durwood Pennington's field goal kicking, 17-14 over South Carolina, 10-7 from Mississippi State and 16-15 last week against Kentucky. Both Michigan State and Mississippi have statistical edges, but it is hard to find solid support for both. The Spartans have a powerful ground offense, ranked fifth nationally, and a defense that has allowed only one touchdown and a field goal, and has shut out its three Big Ten opponents. Ole Miss is second nationally in total offense and passing offense and has a defense that is rated fourth as Coach John Vaught's j three units have little to distinguish between them, performance- wise. Minnesota, also a 3-0 in the Big Ten, is led by quarterback Sandy Stephens, the conference's total offense leader. Its defense is third best nationally, but rated tenth against rushing. LSU (No. 6), was the last team to beat Mississippi—21 games ago —and last year spoiled a perfect Ole Miss season with a 6-6 tie. Both are 3-0 in the SEC, but LSU is not as strong offensively and its defense, while tough, is still not rated as highly as that of the Rebels. Can't Meet 'Em, 'Can't Beat 'Em 9 LANSING, Mich. (AP) - "As long as Southern schools won't schedule teams with Negro football players, you'll never know who is No. 1," said Michigan State Athletic Director Biggie Munn. Munn spoke in answer to a complaint from a student spokesman for Mississippi that "Ole Bears Have Many Ways To Defend PHILADELPHIA (AP)-Coach Nick Skorich of the Philadelphia Eagles figures the Chicago Bears have about 25 defenses, probably the most in the National Football League. He's been drilling his Eagles all week on how to cope with them. "They never let you see the same defense," Skorich said today in reviewing Sunday's opponent at Franklin Field in one of the top NFL games. "They do more things." The Eagles, expected to be at full strength physically, will be out to protect their slim Eastern Conference lead while the second- place Western Conference Bears, who also have a strong offensive, will be out to gain ground on Green Bay. In other games Sunday, St. Louis is at Dallas, Pittsburgh goes to Cleveland, Washington \isits New York, Minnesota is at Los Angeles, Detroit goes to San Francisco and Green Bay is at Baltimore.

Miss" should be rated as the No. 1 team in The Associated Press poll. MSU is tops and Mississippi second in the current rating. Both teams risk their standings Saturday—Michigan State against Minnesota and Mississippi against Louisiana State University. Jimmie Robertson, editor of the Mississipean, student newspaper at Oxford, Miss., wrote to the MSU student newspaper protesting Ole Miss' No. 2 rating and the "archaic thinking" on race relations which prevents the two teams from playing each other. He said Mississippi would b'ke to meet Michigan State but cannot "because we can't play any teams who have Negro players." "If you can't meet them, you can't beat them," said Munn. Michigan State has always refused to compete against any school that will not accept Negro athletes, Munn said. "We will send our athletes against any school. But it has to be regardless of race, creed or *k>14r. v *Michigan State always has refused to compete with anyone who would not accept all our athletes—and this goes for housing or eating or transportation or anything else," Munn declared. In a companion Big Ten thriller fifth-ranked Ohio State, also 3-0 in the conference, meets ninth- ranked Iowa. Third-ranked Texas, the nation's No. 1 offensive unit, takes on Southern Methodist in a Southwest Conference game, looking j for its seventh victory without a j loss. Alabama, ranked fourth and j atop the SEC with 4-0, meets conference foe Mississippi State. And Georgia Tech (No. 7) plays Florida in another SEC game. The Big Eight conference has its big one this year when unbeaten Colorado, ranked eighth with a 5-0 over-all mark, and 4-0 in league play, battles for first place against Missouri (5-0-1). In intersectional games, Navy plays at Notre Dame and Duke, the Atlantic Coast leader, goes against Michigan. Syracuse and Pitt tangle in the East's top game while Rutgers, the nation's only other major undefeated team at 5-0, plays Lafayette.

Braves, Swedes Clash Tonight Larger Crowds At AFL Games DALLAS (AP) - It still isn't paying a profit but attendance in the American Football League is up 7.4 per cent over last year, the league's maiden season. With 30 games played, the average attendance has been 17,801. The average is 1,243 more than 1960 when 16,558 paid to see a game. San Diego, the leagu's unbeaten leader, also tops the circuit in attendance. In three home games the San Diego average has been 27,352 and the Chargers expect to go over the 30,000 mark for the remaining four. An average of about 25,000 is required to start making a profit although some of the clubs can do so with less. Had No-Hitters In Both Leagues c7 LOS ANGELES (AP)-Thomas L. Hughes, one of only two men to pitch a no-hitter in both major leagues, died in a sanitarium Wednesday. He was 77. With the Yankees in 1910, Hughes held the Cleveland Indians hitless in nine innings, than left the game. Cleveland won in 11 innings, 5-0. In 1916, Hughes pitched a no-hitter for Boston | against Pittsburgh, Boston winning 2-0. U. S. Fighters Take A Beating LONDON (AP)-"We used to lead the world in boxing," said Coach Bert Taylor today after his American amateur fighters suffered a humiliating 10-0 defeat to Britain in the opener of a European tour. "Perhaps last night's result will make some people at home think a little more seriously about the sport." The British rout of a U.S. team that included five reigning AAU champions left Taylor, as well as his unhappy fighters, more than a bit shaken. Only four of the 10 matches went the scheduled three-round distance. When it was over, one U.S. fighter was in a hospital, two others had concussions and one of these also needed several stitches to close a bad cut inside his mouth. The Ottawa Braves ran through a quick warmup in Wilson Field House yesterday in preparation for their Kansas Conference football clash with the Bethany Swedes on Cook Field here tonight. The workout was held inside due to rains which had pelted the area during the previous 24 hours. And the forecast for tonight'- game is different but not too much better. Temperatures for tonight, according to the weather bureau in Topeka, are to dip into the 20's. But this doesn't seem to chill the championship-bound Braves, who currently are working on a 17- game winning streak, seven of the victories this season. Still on the doubtful list are defensive tackles Bruce Pemberton and Don Schuyler, Brave Coach Dick Peters said.

(AP) Two men were sentenced to eight years in prison Thursday for blowing up two microwave towers and a relay station in the Nevada- Utah desert. Bernard Brous, 51, and Dale Jensen, 23, pleaded guilty to conspiracy and obstructing vital communications. The government dropped sabotage indictments. Brous said he was commander in chief of the "American Republican Army." Jensen was his only known follower. When arrested, Brous said the explosions last May 28 were set off to arouse interest in his "army," show the government its defenses were weak and avenge wrongs he felt were perpetrated by telephone companies. covering from an emergency ap pendecomy Wednesday.

Dallas is second to San Diego but 4!4 games back. If the Texans lose they will be five behind. Sunday San Diego clashes with New York, one of the clubs tied for the lead in the Eastern Division. The Chargers, who are unbeaten for the season, then would have to take down New York to clinch the championship because they would be 5Va games ahead with only five to play. The Dallas-Boston game is a grudge affair since the Patriots went into the Dallas bailwick last Sunday and knocked off the Texans 18-17 on a last-second field goal by Gino Cappelletti. Should San Diego beat New York, regardless of how the Dallas-Boston game comes out, there could be a new leader or leaders of the Eastern division. Houston, the 1960 league chamion, is only one-half game out of first place and the Oilers meet Denver at Denver Sunday. 37 Fatal Injuries In Football LOS ANGELES (AP) - There have ,been 37 fatal injuries this season that can be traced to football. Nineteen were directly related, 18 indirectly, says Dr. Floyd Eastwood of Los Angeles State College. Dr. Eastwood is chairman of the fatality survey committee of the American Football Coaches' Association. His annual mid-season report, issued Thursday night, said that inadequate pre-season physical examinations, especially in the area of the heart, were partly to blame for the marked increase in deaths. For the same period last year there were only 15 fatalities, 12 direct and three indirect. Dr. Eastwood said there is cause for added concern because of the increase from one to 12 in indirect deaths among high school athletes. "The committee's findings indicate that many of this number may be attributable to inadequate pre-practice season physical examinations, especially of the heart," said Dr. Eastwood. Of the total reported so far this season, five deaths have occurred in sandlot or unsupervised play; two in semi-professional play; 23 in high schol; five in college, and two among officials. Off-Duty Deputy Foils Holdup In A Gun Battle KANSAS CITY (AP)—A blazing the second one. He said the first gun battle erupted suddenly in a or\e kept repeating: crowded store Thursday night as " Don>t be a f ° o1 - ' an off-duty Jackson County deputy foiled a hold-up by two bandits, who escaped. The officer, Ben E. Mann, 51, fired four shots and a bandit shot six times at a range of 10 to 15 feet in a Katz drug store at Truman Corners. Mann said he thought he wounded a gunman twice. No one else was hit, as shoppers screamed and ran for cover. "I don't know how he missed me," Mann said afterward. Mann, in civilian clothes, was buying dog food when the assistant manager, George Stanley, There's three of us. There's somebody coming up behind you." The officer finally let go when somebody yelled, "Look out behind you!" The gunmen fled. A spot of blood was found where one of them had crouched behind a counter. Truman Corners is a big suburban shopping center on U. S. 71 south of Kansas City between Hickman Mills and Grandview. Youngsters In Golf Lead SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) - Two youngsters led 15 par busters into the second round of the $10,000 Almaden Open Golf Tournament today. Larry Mowry and Johnny Lotz each shot 5-under-par 67s Thurs- dav. MANHATTAN (AP) — Kansas State and Oklahoma battle on the gridiron in Manhattan Saturday in a strange juxtaposition. They share the Big Eight cellar. Once-mighty Oklahoma got ther« by losing all five games it has played this season — an unprecedented disaster for the Big Red. Kansas State sports a 2-4 record but neither of the victories was in the conference. Coach Doug Weaver of K-State isn't saying, but apparently his Wildcats are ready to throw the ball again. Larry Corrigan's health is restored sufficiently to permit at least limited action. Sophomore Tom Cooper showed a good passing arm last week against Iowa Slate. Corrigan, early season standout at quarterback, has been on the iniured list three weeks. Will passing bopt Oklahoma? Oklahoma has allowed only one aerial touchdown this year and has yielded only 280 yards through the air. Rushing statistics show the Soon- ers gained 154 yards last week against Colorado, a team that held K-State to but 19 yards on the ground the week before. OU plans to stand pat with it's senior backfield — Bob Page at quarterback, Jimmy Carpenter and Mike McClellan at the halves, and Phil Lohmann at full. They cracked Colorado for two touchdowns in the Sooners' 22-14 loss last week. The Oklahoma line is tough and its effort against the Buffaloes brought this remark from CU coach Sonny Grandelius: "The best 0-5 team I've ever seen." K-State's backfield isn't noted for speed. Glenn Isernhagen and Spencer Puls probably will be at the halfback posts and Bill Gallagher at full. The Wildcats haven't beaten Oklahoma since 1934, when they last took the conference title with a 7-2-1 record. They tied the Soon- ers 6-6 in 1936. Kickoff time is 1:30 p.m. There Was Gold In That Trash BERKELEY, Calif. (AP) When the late Nathaniel Worthy, 92, was evicted frim his secluded home last April, movers found mostly trash. Later, they guessed they might have thrown out inadvertently as much as $22,000 that had been stuffed in unnoticed cans and jars. Worthy, a former U.S. Treasury Department attorney, died last August. He and his spinister daughter, Frances, had lived in seclusion and apparent poverty for 30 years but only Thursday did a family attorney disclose the value Worthy's estate — $400,000. of DeMolay Elects Another Love PITTSBURG (AP)-Sam Love has been installed as master councilor of the Pittsburg chapter of walked past with a man trailing the Order of DeMolay, becoming the third member of his family to hold the position in the same chapter. His father, DeVere Love, who is recorder for the Mirza Temple of the Shrine here, was master coun- him. Stanley whispered to*the officer: "This man has a gun on me to rob the store." Mann jerked out his revolver and accosted the man. The second gunman cracked the officer on the head with a pistol. Mann grabbed the gun hand of the first bandit and scuffled with him while exchanging shots with Love, was installed in the same office in 1959. Sam Love attends Pittsburg High School. Dee Love is a student at Pittsburg State College. All three Loves hold the Cheval- degree, the highest honor ler given an active DeMolay. The father also is the holder of the De- Molay Legion of Honor award Mowry, 24, is assistant pro at Bonita, Calif. Lotz, 21, one of | three amateurs among the sub-1 par belters, is a San Jose State i College student. j Defending champ Charlie Sif-! ford of Los Angeles was one of; five pros scoring 69, sharing third ! spot with Jim Ferrier, Jack i O'Keefe, Chico Miartuz and Bob I McCallister. The biggest names in the field, i Bob Rosburg and Ken Venturi, | were back in the bushes. Rosburg's par 72 got him into a 10- way tie for 16th place. Venturi, winner here in 1959, had 73.
