\ Big Sooner LineBothers KU Mentor By JIM VAN 'AlKENBURG AP Sports Writer A stubby quarter!) k who sold lot dogs at Oklahoma games last fall and a sophomore halfback almost left at home co-nbined 'n a pass play for ti.- Sooners' only touchdown against Texas last Sat- irday. They are Ronald Fletcher, a 5- foot-9, 160-pounder who sold the hot dogs because (IF had no athletic scholarship and needed the money, and Lance Rentzel, a 190- Poundcr. Coach Bud Wilkinson said Wednesday there wasn't room on the plane for Rentze' "but we planned to get him to Dallas." Rentzel made the trip by car. Fletcher, who had thrown only one other pass all season, threw a 38-yard strike to Rentzel and quickly hit him again wtth a 34- yarder in the end zone just before the half ended. Texas won Coolidge Finds Tough Sledding In Grid Wars COOLIDGE — Coolidge High's Blue Devils have been having a tough time On the gridiron this fall, winning just one game of six played so far. The Blue Devils play an independent schedule of both 8-man and 11-man football, picking up what opponents they can. Coolidge is a member of the small- school Western Arkansas Valley League, which has no conference football schedule. Last year was the second in school history for Coolidge to play a football schedule. The Blue Devils played a mixed slate of 8 and 11-man games and fin- j Tigers ished, all-even at 4-4-1. ' State. Coach 0 both seasons has been Lloyd Frakes. Coolidee is hampered by small enrollment. The team opened this fall with a 57-0 defeat at tough Cheyenne Wells, Colo., in an 8-man game. Then followed a 39-0 shutout in 11-man action at Johnson High. Then came Coolidffe's only win — a 13-9 thriller at Holly. Colo., against the Hollv High B-team, also in 11-man play. Roll, tlhen blan'ked the Blue Devils by 28-0 at Coolidge the afternoon of Sent. 2R in an R-man clash. Then followed a 39-fi Toss in 8-man "lav at undefeated Montezuma High. Last Thursday, Coolidge plaved at Rolla, a return same that was homecoming for the Pirates. If this leave* the impression Wilkinson has had to look hard for backfield talent, this is partly correct, Injuries are part of the reason. OU's top quarterback prospect, sophomore Tommy Pan. nell, broke his ankle two weeks before the first game. Another promising rookie, halfback Jackie Co.^an will miss the /est of the season. Wilkinson has two outstanding fullbacks in Jim Grisham and Joe Don Looney, a pair of 205-pound- ers. Looney ran the 100 - yard dash in 9.7 seconds last spring. And Wilkinson believes his club will have a chance to beat any Big Eight team because of an outstanding line and a rugged defense which gave up only 8.3 points a game to Syracuse, Notre Dame and Texas. The Sooners meet Kansas, another good defensive club, at Lawrence Saturday. Coach Jack Mitchell is worried about whether his Jayhawkers could move the ball against the Oklahoma line, which he termed the best in four or five years at OU. Marvin Clothier, Kansas tackle, found the words "Mercury Marv" and a pair of wings painted in white on his helmet. His tackle running mate, Frr Eiseman, performed the job overnight after Clothier, 6 - foot - 3 and 214 pounds, defeated three fleet Kansas halfbacks— Gale Sayers, Dave Crandall and Ron Oelschlager in a 100-yard dash. At Kansas State, Coach Doug Weaver wore an ..r helmet Rolla won again by the same 28-0 inar?in. Injuries have hurt OIP already- tihin Blue Devils. Coolidee has two more games left on its sl»te.

Dodgers Sign Alston For Tenth Season LOS ANGELES (AP)—The Los Angeles Dodgers—apparently convinced it takes all kinds — will string along another year with Manager Walt Alston, who seldom raises his voice, and Joach Leo Durocher, who seldom rests his. Alston, rehired Wednesday for a 10th season, said he wanted to retain Durocher despite reports Leo had second-guessed him after the Dodgers lost 'he National League playoffs. Durocher, asked whether he would return, said he had no comment. "I'll let Mr. Bavasi (Dodger General Manager Buzzie Bavasi) make all the statements," Durocher said. during football practice.

Robinson Is Lone Reoeafer NEW YORK (AP) — For the second straight year, outfielder Frank Robinson of the Cincinnati Reds has been named to The Associated Press major league Ail- Star team. Robinson is the lone repeater from last season's squad to make the 1962 team announced Wednesday in the annual poll of members of the Baseball Writers Association. The Los Angeles Dodgers monopolized the team with four players being selected*. They are shortstop Maury Wills, outfielder Tommy Davis, left-handed pitcher Sandy Koufax an<j right-handed pitcher Don Drysdale. The National League pennant winning San Francisco Giants were the only other club to place more than one man on the team. The Giants' representatives are first baseman Orlando Cepeda and outfielder Willie Mays. The rest of the squad includes second basenvan Bobby Richardson of the New York Yankees, third baseman Brooks Robinson of the Baltimore Orioles and catcher Earl Battey of the Minnesota Twins. Oklahoma Preps for Game Witth Jayhawks NORMAN (AP) — Oklahoma worked two hours Wednesday, polishing assignments for Saturday's football ga.'ie against Kansas. Starting quarterback Monte Deere, troubled with a groin in•jury, remained sidelined but is ex. pected to participate in today's workouts. Frosh Swamp Dodge, 32-6 Garden City Junior High dumped a five-touchdown barrage on Dodge City here Wednesday night to post a 32-6 ninth-grade football victory at Penrose Stadium. Coach Dale Marine cleared the Baby Buff bench, using all his gridders against the outmanned visitors. Garden is undefeajed this fall, while Dodge has yet to notch a victory. Garden almost scored the first time it had the ball, moving 49 yards in 16 plays. That thrust reached the Dodge 18 at one point, but was stopped for downs at the Cardinal 21. The visitors were then pushed back by a holding penalty and by good defensive work by Garden. Dodge punted out on fourtih down. The kick carried only a short distance and was returned to the Cardinal 7-yard line. From ther«, the Baby Buffs scored in two plays. Quarterback Dave Keller scored on a 1-yard sneak with 8:17 left in the second quarter. Mark DeFever was stopped on run for extra point. Dodge then racked, up two first downs, reached the Buff 43, and punted out of bounds on the Garden 11. The locals moved back 89 yards in 11 plays to scors agnin with 41 seconds left in the half. Steve Need ran 15 yards in that drive, and Duane Downtain found end John Lightner open for a 30- yard gain. Two plays later, Downtain pitched again to Lightner for a scoring play covering 26 yards. Lightner caught the ball behind a Dodge defender at the 2-yard line and ran in. A fumble ruined Buffs-Dodge Meet Friday Dodge City High will bring a good 4-1 record here tomorrow night when the Red Demons mix with Garden City High in their important West Central Kansas League football battle. Coach Bob Gerard's Demons will also have a big revenge motive. Last fall at Dodge, all-state halfback Mike Johnson led the Buffs to a 33-12 romp as Garden rolled to an all-winning season. That loss and a 13-12 upset at Russell were the only two defeats on Dodge's 1961 record. Dodge suffered its only loss of 1962 so far at tough Larned Friday night, 7-0. The Demons previously had beaten Kansas City Sumner (18-6) Russell (13-6), HENRY HALL AGENCY tot Why don*t you get some 'copy* to ma ao I can prepare your MBHO Ads'?

The Larned-Dodge game was a big one in the WCKL, which is having one of its tightest races in recent seasons. Great Bend is the leader, having lost only to non-conference Hutchinson, 18-12, in the Great Bend season opener. Larned's only loss was by 7-0 to Great Bend — and Dodge's only loss was by the same margin at Larned. Dodge must beat Garden tomorrow to keep its title hopes alive. The Demons then must also win at Great Bend on Oct. 31 to share ttie title. Great Bend plays at Garden next week. Garden takes a 2-3 record into the game. The Buffs have beaten Hays (19-14) and Russell (21-20), losing to Colby (25-7), Liberal (16-6), and Larned (13-0). Coacli John Dickerson of Garden announced several more shifts in his starting offensive aiid defensive lineups. The Buffs now have their offensive backfield pretty well established. Duane Marine (165-pound sen- ior) will be at quarterback with Kent Cannichael (146 junior) at fullback. Scotty Davi/> (152 senior) will be at right halfback, with Bob Stalter (156 junior) at left half. Thus the,. Buff starting backfield , have three juniors, Gary Schnurr (159 senior) will be at left end; Jim Terrell (159 junior) at left tackle; Tom Dale (152 senior) at left guard; Jerry Christensen (175 senior) at center; David Heinemann (174 senior) at right guard; Doyl e Me- Graw (207 senior) at right tackle, and Mike Collins (183 junior) at right end. On defense, Schnurr and Leroy Leighty (140 senior) will be the ends. McGraw and Heinemann will be the tackles, with Christensen and Dale as guards. Paul Walker (168 junior) will be middle linebacker, with Johnny Ham man (150 soph) and Joe Ortiz (160 senior) as outside linebackers, Davis and Mike Blackett (136 sophomore) will be the defensive halfbacks. the try for conversion point via run to make the score 12-0 for Garden. In the third quarter, Garden added two more touchdowns. The Buffs took the kickoff and went 56 yards in eight plays for the first one. Keller, Need, DeFever, and Downtain alternated carries. DeFever took a handoff and powered through the middle the final five yards. He was traveling at such a fast clip that he zipped through the end zone. He also plunged for the extra point. With l:24»left in the third, Garden scored again. Dodge attempted to punt on fourth down — but the pass from center was high over the kicker's head. Lightner grabbed the ball on the S-yard line and raced into the end zone. But officials ruled it no score and gave Garden the ball at the 11. On the first play, DeFever took a handoff and boomed through right guard for another score. He also added the point vi a run to make the counf 26-0. Late in the game, Dodige gamto led and lost, giving up the ball on its 16-yard stripe on fourth dawn. On the first play, Downtain pitched to Lightner again for the final Garden score with 6:09 left to play. The run for point was missed because of a fumbled handoff. With 5:17 left, Dodge got its only score. Right halfback Ralph Konrade broke away for a 64- yard scoring gallop, getting good blocking, fullback Bl'don Dirks was stopped on run for point. Dodge then recovered a Garden fumble on the kickoff at the Buff 37. The Cards got off 12 running plays. The drive reached the Garden 6-yard line at one time, but was stopped at the Buff nine on fourth lown, final play of the game. Garden had previously beaten the Scott City ninths-tenths (1413), Hugoton (19-0), and Ul'ysses (20-0), while tieing Great Bend Harrison (6-6). Dodge beat the Buff ninths last year by 12-0 to mar an otherwise all^winning season for Garden.

Cards, Cubs Complete Deal ST. LOUIS (AP)— The St. Lowis Cardinals completed a trade with the Chicago Cubs for George Altman Wednesday after turning clown a similar deal that would have brought them the power-hitting outfielder last summer. The 28-year-old left-handed Altman, key man in the swap, comes to the Cardinals with pitcher Don Cardwell and catcher Moe Thacker. Going to the Cubs are pitchers Larry Jackson and Lindy McDaniel and catcher Jirr Schaffer. General Manager Bing Devine of the Cardinals and John Holland of the Cubs handled the deal. A similar deal substituting pitcher Bob Anderson for Cardwell was reportedly nixed by the Cardinals earlier although approved by the Cubs. "Cardwcll's a quality pitcher with a quality arm, who's never lived up to his potential," Devine said of the hard-throwing right- hander who had a 7-16 record and a 4.91 earned run average this season. But Altman was the man the Cardinals were trying to get, to the extent of giving 16-game winner Jackson, 31, and one-time relief ace MeDaniel. Altman hit .318 and had 22 homers and 74 runs batted in during the 1962 season. Cone Fish in' with HAROLD ENSL6Y Never before in the history of our nation have so many people been interested in hunting and fishing. We think of baseball as our national pastime and certainly at World Series time all eyes are on the outcome of this great classic. We played some professional ball and love the game. However, it occurred to us that while hunting and fishing as a sport did not originate in 'American they are just as much a part of our way of life as baseball and hot dogs. Most all the people of the •world have some fishing and hunting, but no people have such opportunities as the American people. It is something that most of us take for granted just as we do many of the other things we consider ordinary. On our recent trip to Wyoming we noticed hunters from many different states. Some had driven from as far as Michigan. It was an amazing thing when you stopped*.to think of it. We hunted in an area where only a year or so ago few people hunted. The number of hunters has increased to proportions little dreamed of a decade ago. Soon the pheasant hunters will flock by the thousands to the Plains states with the Dakotas, Nebraska, and Kansas leading the way. The money spent on hunting and fishing cannot be determined exactly, but it reaches proportions that are staggering. With our hunting pressure increasing so rapidly it makes us wonder what it will be like in the next generation. We sincerely hope that free hunting as we know it will last a long time. It has been one of America's richest heritages for the sportsmen. From the days of our forefathers to the present time it has been a big moment in the life of a youngster when he bought his first gun or his dad took him on his first hunting trip. As We gazed across the vast wilds of the powder river area in Wyoming we thought iJ the days when the Indians hunted the same section. The land in a way is just as rugged and just as wild as it was then. Men in years gone by have wisely set aside wilderness areas in parts of the country so that our children and their children can see it as it was in the long ago. Anyway you look at it, our hunting is getting commercial. That is, in the sense that it costs money to hunt. It costs money to travel, it costs money to buy a license, and it costs money to have deer or elk processed. But most important of all we still have places where the public t hunt. We hope it will always be that way. It is a part of America. Fishing is somewhat different. We have reached new frontiers in that respect. New kinds of fishing for more peo[ is the offering of the day. No longer do we think of the oarefoot boy with a cane pole and a can of worms. This can only be a memory. Fishing holds a fascination for most people who have had a taste for it. Sport fishing in America is Page 5 (•ardent City Telegram Thursday, October 18, 1962 perhaps just in its infancy. There is every reason to believe that we will have more to offer the fisherman than ever before. Everything points in that direction. Certainly no other nation from border to border ' as such fishing as we have here. We believe that interest in fishing among our citizens is going to continue to grow by leaps and bounds. The American people love the outdoors. They love all o; the outdoor sports and to us this Is a token of strength. You can quote statistics if you like abov.t boating, water skiing, swimming, camping, and all other activities. Most of thorn are closely allied to fishing and hunting. It seems to us a sort of inherent desire bred into Us from the days of the early pioneers. We are proud to have a part in this great movement. Recrea- tior has become a majcr factor in our way of life. May we always use it wisely. Let us not forget baseball and hot dogs. It is America. But in like manner fishing and hunting, as we know it, is America at her bestl Mantle Captures Crown NEW YORK (AP) - Mickey Mantle of the New York Yankees won his fourth American League slugging crown and Frank Robinson of Cincinnati captured Ms third straight National League title in 19S2, final figures compiled by The Associated Press showe* today.
