r THE OTTAWA HERALD Tuesday, November 7, 1061 KU Leads Big 8 In Total Offense By WES COOK The Associated Press Kansas, with its hopes for an Orange Bowl bid somewhat diminished, has become the powerhouse of the Big Eight Conference. The Jayhawks ranked fourth in the league on Oct. 8 on total offense with an average of 218 yards a game. Defensively, they ranked last after allowing their opposition an average of 315 yards a game. These statistics were reflected in the won-lost column as Kansas managed nothing better than a tie with Wyoming while absorbing defeats by Texas Christian and Colorado. Since then, Kansas has won four straight. And the Jayhawks now boast a total offense of 1,941 yards or an average of 277.3 Pat, Mike Keep The Tide Rolling By JACK CLARY Associated Press Sports Writer Alabama's Crimson Tide, back among the elite of college football after a decade of mediocrity, have spelled success this year with a pair of Qs, and a couple of blokes named Pat and Mike The Qs stand for "quarterback" and "quickness", the hallmark of its rapid-fire offense and a rock- robbed defense. The Pat is also the quarterback, Pat Trammell. Mike? He is a quick-driving fullback by the name of Mike Fracchia, who proves a perfect foil to the speed, deception and passing precision of his partner, Trammell. This combination has led Coach Bear Bryant's team to a 7-0 record, and has helped it to be ranked No. 2 in The Associated Press' latest poll after whomping Mississippi State last Saturday, 24-0. All elements have blended precisely. Trammell is ranked fifth nationally in total offense with 956 yards running and passing, and llth in passing with 730 yards in completing 54 of 93 attempts. Alabama is second nationally in total defense, allowing only 911 yards in seven games for a 130.1 average, and second in rushing defense with a miserly 55.1 per game average. It has allowed only 3.1 points per game, lowest in the nation. Trammell has passed for five touchdowns, and scored eight. Fracchia has tallied four times and been the hatchet man on key yardage situations. Both will be ready this Saturday when the Tide plays Richmond of the Southern Conference, causing the Spiders Coach Ed Merrick to crack, "I hope my boys won't be overconfident." Richmond may be without halfback Earl Stoudt, its All Conference halfback and leading ground gainer, who injured a knee in last week's 11-0 victory over Virginia Tech. Oilers Lead In. Offense DALLAS. Tex. (AP) - Houston stepped up its offense and San Diego its defense in the American Football Lea&ue last week. Houston moved farther out front in offense, running its average to 438 yards per game—20 yards more. The Oilers do most of their moving in the air, showing 318 yards passing. San Diego, the unbeaten leader of the Western Division, is stingier than ever on defense. The tightfisted Chargers have given up only 225 yards per outing, of which just 89 are on rushing. San Diego is in second place on offense, averaging 337 yards per game. Houbton ranks third in defense, behind New York. The Oilers are allowing 300 yards per game, New York 285." He Expects To Be Booed PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Veteran lineman Chuck Bednarik said today he expects to get booed next Sunday when the Philadelphia Eagles tangle with the Giants in New York in a crucial National Football League game. The stellar Eagles' center figures that some New York fans won't forget his booming tackle in last year's victory which rocked back Frank Gifford and sidelined him the rest of the season with a severe concussion. It was a game-saving tackle and a clean one, Gifford conceded later. "Some people are funny," said Bednarik. "But the booing won't bother mo. Absolutely not. I'm just going to play my ordinary game." Bednarik, a key player in the Eagles drive to the National Football League championship in 1960, started the game as a defensive linebacker against the Giants in New York last year but during the second half he played both ways. This year, Bednarik, who is equally effective either offensively or defensively, has been playing only on the offensive unit as center and on the goal-line stand unit. KU Freshman .Gridster Dies * y.Aft" LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP)—John Pippin, 18, University of Kansas freshman football player, died at the university hospital Monday. Pippin was operated for appendicitis Oct. 28. Complications developed an another operation was performed Thursday. A halfback, Pippin suffered a knee injury in the first play of the Kansas-Kansas State freshman game Oct. 26. Two doctors said the football injury had nothing to do with the death. Pippin was the son of Mr. and Mrs. B. C. Pippin, Oklahoma City. Trap Shooters About 65 persons took part Sunday in trap shooting at the Ottawa Jaycees" range on West 2nd Street. Here:'are the winners: Name E W Beatty 10 Moore 12 Melroy 12 Faderi 18 Hart 16 Heathman 8 Stecher 10 Cannady 11 Geiger 17 Patterson 27 4 Burlingham 10 1 Gladstone 1 5 Schaub 5 4 Kinder 3 1 yards a game. At the same time their defenses have tightened up. They have yielded an average of 236 yards a game for 7 games or 79 yards less than in the first three games. Colorado, the Big Eight leader and top prospect for the Orange Bowl, is second in total offense with a 258.7 yard average in 6 games. R. E. Peters, executive director of the conference, was asked Monday if the league champion was automatically awarded the bowl bid. He explained that under the contract, the Orange Bowl has the right to reject the champion and select any team from the conference if it feels another team would provide a better contest. As a result Kansas and Missouri could conceivably still win the bowl bid. Other statistical leaders this week include Missouri on team defense. The Tigers have allowed 1,225 yards in 7 games or an av erage of only 175 a game. Iowa State's Dave Hoppmann still tops the individual leaders. The Cyclone tailback is No. .1 in mshing in the league and No. 1 in the nation on total offense. He has carried the ball 182 times for 787 yards. He also has completed 27 of 58 passes for 481 yards or a total offense of 1,268 yards. Cyclone teammate Dick Limerick is the No. 1 pass receiver with 12 receptions for 213 yards Dennis Claridge of Nebraska is the top punter with a 39.9 yard average on 29 punts. Leon Mavity of Colorado is the leader in punt returns with a 20 yard average on 6 runbacks. John Hadl of Kansas has taken over as the scoring leader with 5 touchdowns for 30 points. He just edged Colorado's Jerry Hillebrand who has 29 points on two touchdowns, 8 conversions and three field goals. Longhorns Top Gainers NEW YORK (AP)-The powerful Texas Longhorns lead the nation's major college football teams in total and rushing yardage for the third consecutive week. The Longhorns have an average 325 yards rushing and 431 over-all while compiling an unblemished record for seven games. They gained 431 yards—their exact season's average—in beating SMU last Saturday, according to statistics compiled by the NCAA Service Bureau. Mississippi, which was knocked from the unbeaten ranks by Louisiana State, remained the run- nerup in total offense with 417.7 average followed by Utah State 387.6 and New Mexico State 372.9. The Detroit Titans still hold a commanding lead over Mississippi in passing. Detroit has averaged 218.2 yards a game to Ole Miss' 179.4. Mississippi has passed for the most touchdowns, 15, and has the lowest average of interceptions, 2.8 on only four interceptions in 145 pitches. Duke's Blue Devils retained their lead in aerial accuracy. Their passers have connected on 70 of 117 for a .598 percentage. Utah State has the highest scoring average, 38.1 points a game for eight outings. Crushed Stone Govt. Lime Spread Washed Kaw Sand FOGLE QUARRY CH 2-4864 — CH 2-1782 Jockeys Named To Hall Of Fame BALTIMORE (AP) - Linus (Pony) McAlee and Joe Notter, two noted jockeys of yesteryear, were elected today to the National Jockeys Hall of Fame. McAtee led in the annual balloting by sportswriters throughout the nation, but because the closeness of the vote (297-291), the shrine's permanent nominating committee decided to honor both men this year. Notter, 72, of Floral Park, N.Y., rode from 1904 through 1918. His purse-winning record of $464,322 in 1908 stood until it was broken by Earl Sande in 1923. McAtee, 64, now a successful financial investor, lives in Jamai- i ca, N.Y. His career lasted from 1914 through 1932. He was the leading money-winning jockey in • 1928. 1 Scores From OTTAWA BOWL 418y 2 N. Main Phone CH 2-9741 MONDAY Lees Cafe—1 M. Wcldner ., M. Smay .. . V. Ferguson . S. Ferguson M.

Pheasant Season To Open Nov. 11 The 3-day prairie chicken season has come and gone, but upland game bird hunters still have the pheasant season, which will begin Nov. 11, and the quail season, to stavt Nov. 18, to look forward to. An Upland Game Bird Stamp ($1) is required to hunt pheasant and quail. The duck and goose season is currently in full swing with the exception of redhead and canvas back ducks for which there is no open season this year. Squirrels will be in season through Nov 30, and rabbit season reopens during prairie chicken season and again during and after pheasant season. The Kansas Forestry, Fish and Game Commission has issued a Steers Drop Home Game By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS A crowd of 3,107 welcomed the Kansas City Steers at their first home game in the American Basketball League Monday night and watched their team lose to Cleveland 110-106. League-leading San Francisco also assumed the spoiler's role, defeating the Los Angeles Jets 116-113 in the opener at Los Angeles. The crowd there was 1,634. Cleveland's 6-foot Roger Taylor, former Illinois star, proved the little man still has a place. He scored 35 points with a soft, outside shot. Bill Bridges led Kansas City with 24. In Los Angeles, George Yardley of the Jets and Whitey Bell of the Saints ignited a brief fight. None of the players involved was ejected. San Francisco was beind 10 points midway through the third period but a 3-point basket by Bell put the Saints ahead as the quarter ended. San Francisco never again relinquished the lead. Dave Gunther scored 27 points for San Francisco. Bell had 26.

Last spring, 36 migrated to Canada. Two more whoopers were reported and authenticated near Cheyenne Bottoms Saturday, Oct. 28. Three were sighted near the same location Oct. 18. The whocpers, one of America's largest and rarest birds, return to Aransas Refuge each winter after nesting in Canada. The migration generally brings whoopers through Kansas during October, but the last straggler may come through as kite as mid-December. cocks. The taking of five cocks is entirely legal. Dave Coleman, chief of the game division, said Wednesday that duck and goose hunting should improve statewide with the first cold storm. In the meantime, hunting will probably continue to be best on large impoundments and in waterfouwl management areas. Georgia Tech Had To Let Mike McNames Grow A Bit ATLANTA (AP) - A fullback who came to Georgia Tech without a scholarship is the unsung fellow who is leading the Yellow Jackets on their spectacular comeback. Mike McNames couldn't push the scales as far as 170 pounds when he showed up for practice four years ago. He weighed no more than 177 in 1959 when Coach Bobby Dodd awarded him a football grant-in-aid and held him out for seasoning and weight-gaining. Now McNames, weighing a solid 191, is Tech's bread-and- butter yardage man. The Vidalia, Ga., junior, who seldom gets mentioned in discussions of the Tech offense, leads the team in rushing with 293 yards, an average of four yards every time he carries the ball. He has had a big hand in every touchdown drive of this successful season in which Tech has beaten six of its first seven foes. In last week's 20-0 victory over Florida, the nationally ranked Engineers moved 23 yards for their first touchdown. McNames got 12 of them. They toured 44 yards through tough Florida defenders for the second. McNames got 31 of these. On the third drive he carried twice for 12 yards just before halfback Chick Craning ran 28 for the score. "Mike is the best fullback we have had at Tech since Ken Owen in 1956," Dodd said today. "As a runner he isn't as likely to go all the way as Owen, but there are some things he does even better. He is the best blocking fullback I've coached in a good many years, and he plays corner linebacker in excellent fashion. McNames has been consistently good all season. Certainly his play has been a key to our success this year."

"I hope they bring back the spitball," Frick said today. "The pitchers need help. Most of the rule changes the past few years have favored the batter. Something has to be done to give the game more balance." According to Frick, a proposal to legalize the spitter was submitted to the major league rules committee last month. The group is expected to consider it during the majors' annual meetings early in December in Tampa, Fla. Jim Gallagher, veteran executive most recently with Philadelphia, is the committee chairman. By JACK HAND Associated Press Sports Writer Texas marched into first plac« in the weekly Associated Press poll of a 48-ma'n committee of sports writers and sportscasters today after both Michigan State and Mississippi were upended. Michigan State had ruled the roost for three weeks. The unbeaten Texas Longhorns, 27-0 winners over Southern Methodist for their seventh straight, assumed the lead with only three games to play. Alabama, also beaten in seven, took over second position by drubbing Mississippi State 24-0. Ohio State, 29-13 winner over Iowa, bolted into third place in the big shuffle. Louisiana State, 10-7 conqueror of previously unbeaten Mississippi, advanced to the No. 4 slot and Minnesota, which knocked Michigan State out of the unbeaten cliiss 13-0, took over fifth. The points are figured on the basis of 10 for first, 9 for second and so on down to one for 10th place. On that basis, Texas has 473 points and Alabama 410. There are no pairings involving teams from the top ten in this weeks schedule. The only unbeaten, untied clubs in the top ten are Texas, Alabama and Colorado. Ohio State has not lost but was tied by Texas Christian. 1. Texas (35) 473 2. Alabama (6) 419 3. Ohio State (7) 365 4. Louisiana State 317 5. Minnesota 247 6. Michigan State 202 7. Mississippi 191 8.
