Gopher Fans Like War math Way Now MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. (AP) Ability to make the big play when the chance comes. That sums up the success story of the Minnesota football team, author of Saturday's 13-0 upset of top-ranked Michigan State. "We play a methodical type of game which is not very interesting to the spectator," says Gopher Coach Murray Warmath. "We concentrate on trying to take the mistakes out of football —and then let our opponents beat themselves by making a mistake or two." Rival coaches, aghast over the Michigan State defeat, agree that Minnesota's game is sometimes methodical and unimaginative. Some add the word lucky, too. They admit their mistakes, point to some Gopher errors and Wilt Leads In Scoring NEW YORK (AP) - As usual, towering Wilt Chamberlain is leading the National Basketball Association in scoring, with a 48.8 average, and in rebounding. The defending champion Boston Celtics don't have a player among the top 10 scorers listed in the weekly league statistics released today, nor do they have an individual leader in any department. But with six players averaging in double figures, the Celtics have won all four outings, lead the Eastern Division standings and have an average margin of victory of 24J points. Sad Sam Makes Pretty Music AGUA CALIENTE, Mexico (AP)—If a horse could sing, you might say that one named Sad Song sang a happy tune for Guy Diaz and his five friends. Sad Song can't sing, but he can run. He won the 10th race at Caliente Sunday, and Diaz, 38, and his friends had him picked. They also tabbed the five previous races, enabling them 1o cash in a pool ticket worth $72,127.

But seldom do they say it was because Minnesota has a better team. An expert watching Minnesota for the first time Saturday compared the Gophers with boxer Tiger Jones, saying, "It doesn't look like he is winning until you start counting up the points in the sixth round." Against Michigan State Minnesota came up five times with a vital play. "We like to kick on third down, kick off instead of receive and stick to a running attack as much as possible, mainly to place the pressure on the other team," Warmath explained. "We figure if the opposition has the ball deep in its own territory it is more likely to make a harmful error. "We play the percentages a great deal and sometimes shock the fans with our conservatism, but it is all for a definite purpose. You might say we play a defensive ball game." j The fans didn't like Warmath's | style of football several years ago. They love it now.

The name is familiar-the Ford Fairlane 5OO. 17ie car itself is totally new-so new you'll see nothing else like it this year. It is one of Ford's milestone designs-and will be as influential in its way as the first mass-produced car (aFord Model T), the first popular station wagon (a Ford Wagon), the first four-passenger luxury car(aFordThunderbird) t the world's most yucce6vv/w/ compact (a Ford Falcon). Right between Galaxie and Falcon in size and in price, the 1962 Ford Fairlane 500 is just the right car for just about everybody; you have» never been able to buy anything so right before. Big in room, ride and performance, it is still priced under most compacts. It nurses a nickel as though it never expected to see another. It moves like a rabbit on roller skates. New unitized body a foot shorter outside ... full-size Inside Ford engineers have changed the proportions of the automobile: a completely new unitized body gives you more room inside with less bulk outside. A foot shorter than previous Fairlanes, the new Fairlane 500 is pleasantly parkable, delightfully driveable, easily garageable. At the same time it packs into its neat and nifty 197 inches as much passenger room •s you had in some of the biggest Fords tver built. Twice-a-year maintenance Service is reduced to a minimuin-30,000 miles on many items, twice a year on the rest. You go 30,000 miles between major lubrications, 6,000 miles between oil changes and minor lubrications. You don't have to touch the engine coolant- antifree/.e for two years—or 30,000 miles— at a time. Brakes adjust themselves. All-new economy Eight from world's V-8 leader The hand that honed the Thunderbird— and sped the Falcon to all-time Economy Run honors — turned to a new problem here, the world's first economy V-8. Made possible by new Ford foundry methods, the new Challenger V-8 is as strong as iron—and a lot lighter than iron's ever been before. As lively as you'd like . . . thriftier than you'd expect a V-8 to be ... it's a natural powerplant for America's first eat-your-c:ake-and-have-it car. For those who want even greater thrill, there'i a new Fairlane Six. Its economy would be gratifying in a smaller car. In a car this size it's a downright delight. Preview America's newest car now As part of Preview Run U.S.A., new Fairlane 500's are riding the nation'i highways and main streets right now. Watch for them. See what thousands have already seen —and raved about. Take a turn at the wheel—and perhaps do a little raving yourself. We think you'll agree: this all-new Ford is just right for just about everybody. No matter how many new can you've looked at, you haven't seen anything like this one.
