THE OTTAWA HERALD Thursday, Nov. 9, 1961 Citadel Can Thank Whaley For Victory By JACK CLARY Associated Press Sports Writer The Citadel's 1961 Southern Conference football champions allowed more yards than it gained. The Bul'dogs are second in the conference in total offense with an average gain of 254.9—and last in total defense with a 292.9 mark. A good part of the credit must go to quarterback Bill Whaley. who was the key to the Cadets' 14-8 title clinching victory last Saturday over Virginia Military. He passed or ran on 11 of the 13 plays The Citadel used to push over the winning score, winding it up with a 22-yard touchdown pass to Henry Mura. In all. he completed 10 of 16 passes for 150 yards. He ran for an additional 28 to account for all but 79 yards of the Cadets 257 total offense. Last week Whaley was weakened by a cold and The Citadel's best "runner, Early Eastburn, suffered from a neck injury. After two days of intensive work this week for the game against Florida State, Coach Eddie Teague breathed a sigh of relief. "We've had injuries to key players all season, but it's good to end our contact work with everybody shipshape. We'll need all the help we can muster against Florida State." That's the way Baylor feels about its upcoming game against Texas, the nation's No. 1 team. The Bears have quarterback Bobby Fly, halfback Ronnie Goodwin and Dalton Hoffman still on the sidelines with injuries. Texas is missing its top fullback, Ray Poage. Halfback Jim Cairns of Minnesota remains doubtful for Saturday's game against Iowa and another halfback Bill Monsey, the hero of last week's upset of Michigan State, is limping. Iowa allowed only University President Dr. Virgil M. Hancher and Athletic Director Forest Evashevski to view its top-secret practice sessions. Missouri, which meets Oklahoma, will have defensive halfback Norm Beal ready for action. Notre Dame moved senior Roger Wilke to first-team tackle in place of Bob Bill as the Irish wound up heavy work for Saturday's game at Pittsburgh.

Associated Press poll since the 1 second week of the season, faces es a climax this week in a pair of { 5th ranked Salina in one of the top games involving four of the state's top five teams.

(AP)The athletes Uncle Sam pulled into the Army because of the Berlin crisis aren't yelling "foul!" "It's one of the things you have to accept as part of the times," said Pvt. Ray Nitschke, hard- muscled linebacker of the Green Bay Packers. "I took an oath of obligation when I joined the reserves and Summerairs Toe May Decide Game proved to be the difference in a 17-14 victory, as did one of 28 yards in a 24-21 win over Washington. "I try to kick all my field goals the same way," he said. "When I'm in close, I'll try and scoop the ball a little more and get it in the air quicker. A good kicker will make nine of 10 from 30 yards or less, and can be fairly accurate from 35 to 38 yards out." The inside secret to being a good place-kicker, he says is to "get a man who knows how to hold the ball. I've never had a bad hold from Charley (Goner- ly)." ft ' : In other NFL games Sunday, Baltimore is at Minnesota, Cleveland at Washington, Dallas at Pittsburgh, Detroit at St. Louis, Green Bay at Chicago and San Francisco at Los Angeles.

Motelet. 529 By JACK CLARY Associated Press Sporst Writer NEW YORK (AP)-Pat Summerall, the New York Giants' golden-toed place-kicker, realizes that he may wind up being the difference this Sunday when the Philadelphia Eagles come to Yankee Stadium for the crucial Eastern Conference game against the Giants. Summerall, a boyish-looking 10- year National Football League veteran, currently holds the consecutive extra points string, 107 without a miss, for active NFL players. Since coming to the Giants from the Cardinals in 1958, he has missed only two. "Oh sure, I'm conscious'%'it (the streak)," he said today. "I don't know how many I have to go to break the record (50 to break George Blanda's mark of 156 with the Bears), but it doesn't bother me too much." Summerall, who has booted 24 extra points so far this year, also takes care of the field goals. It is in this department, particular- j ly, that he may mean the differ- j ence against a tough defensive | team like the Eagles. He's already made nine of 24 this year, his longest being a pair j Pr ^ ehl ° 1n0 .7 0i _ McAnarne y, 193-503 of 44-vard drives, both coming in K of c NO. s—2 , • " tt , • , c , , • High 10-30 — Terry. 228-58* losing efforts, against St. I-ouis and Dallas in Yankee Stadium. A 19-yarder against Pittsburgh Gorillas Set Pace By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Powerful Pittsburg of Kansas, which has yielded only seven points and scored 265 while compiling an eight-game winning streak, continues to set the pace in The Associated Press' small- college football poll this week. Pittsburgh, 35-0 conqueror of Emporia (Kan.) State last Saturday, collected 68 points on three votes for first place, four for second and one for ninth in the balloting by a select panel of sportswriters and broadcasters. Baldwin-Wallace, unbeaten in seven games, remained in the runner-up position with 57 points followed by Southeast Louisiana 53 points and Northern Michigan 49. The only major change among the top ten was Lchigh's advancement to the No. 8 spot. Unranked last week, Lehiyh upset Colgate 20-15. The top ten (points figured on a basis of 10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1 from first through tenth places (first place votes in parentheses): Points 1. Pittsburgh (Kan.) (3) 68 2. Baldwin-Wallace (1) 57 3. Southeast Louisiana (2) 53 4. Northern Michigan 41) 5. Fresno Stale 32 6. Florida A&M M 7. Whittier (Calif.) 2fl 8. Lehigh 14 9. Linfield (1) ]] 10. Lenoir Rhytie (1) 10 never considered applying for deferment," Nitschke added. "This," said Pvt. Tony Kubek, star shortstop of the world champion New York Yankees, "is a much bigger thing than any baseball game." Three other prominent soldier- athletes of the 32nd Red Arrow Infantry Division expressed similar sentiment, said Lt. Robert Bjorklund, public information officer. They are Pvts. Bob Taylor, Milwaukee Braves outfielder; George Thomas, Los Angeles Angels outfielder; and Doug Mayberry, Alinneapolis Vikings fullback. Boyd Dowler. Green Bay halfback, is expected to join the di vision next week. The unit will receive intensive training for battle readiness in the coming weeks. None is overjoyed with the change in uniform, the interruption of career, the cut in wages. Each draws base pay of $85.80 per month. Most, if not all, are in the five-figure salary class as' athletes. "I didn't make much more when I was down in the minors," grinned Kubek, revealing a chipped tooth—his first Army souvenir. He got it playing touch football with his new buddies in Company A, Third Battle Group, 127th Infantry. "The Army is not an easy thing to accept." Kubek added. "You can hardly blame anyone for feeling a little bitter." JACK NICKLAUS Nicklaus Turns Pro COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP)-Ama teur golfers have given a sigh o relief, but the professionals of th game are casting a wary eye a a newcomer to their ranks—Jac Nicklaus, the most talked abou amateur since Bobby Jones. The Ohio State University se nior, 21, who has won just about every amateur title around, including the National Amateur in 1959 and 1961, announced Wednesday that he is entering the play- for-pay field. "I just decided I wanted to play golf," the stocky blond said. "And 1 owe it to my family to give them the best possible living I can." I started thinking seriously about the professional game just before the Walker up matches this year. I didn't have any school work or job to worry about. I just played golf. Then after the cup, I spent two weeks getting ready for the U. S. Amateur and my game really started getting good." Pipers Find Going Rough By TIIE ASSOCIATED PRESS The Cleveland Pipers, national AAU champions last year after dominating the National Industrial League, are having a rough time living up to their favorite's role as professionals in the new American Basketball League. Three clutch points in the closing minutes by ex-Kansas University star Bill Bridges sent the Pipers down to their second loss in three ABL starts Wednesday night, a 101-100 squeaker to the Kansas City Steers. The Pipers, who moved almost intact into the ABL with last year's title squad, made up a 14- Whitey Ford Wins Award LAKE SUCCESS, N. Y. (AP)Whitey Ford was as pleased as a rookie pitching his first major league victory when he learned he had been voted the 1961 Cy Young award as baseball's outstanding pitcher. "You know something," he said. "It's the first award I've ever gotten in 15 years in baseball. Oh, I did get an award once, but it was while I was in the Army and it was for hitting, not pitching. And the game was softball, to boot." The southpaw star of the world luence on final state rankings. Independence, ranked 2nd, goes .gainst 4th-ranked Cpffeyville for the Southeast Kansas League title and state honors. Manhattan is 8-0 for the season and Independence will be shooting for its 40th consecutive victory. • Salina and Coffeyville each have won seven and tied one this year. Garden City, the No. 3 team plays Scott City. Wichita Southeast, ranked 6th plays Wichita South. Lawrence, No. 7, is at Highland Park. Leavenworth, No. 8, plays Lafayette high of St. Joseph, Mo Wichita East, No. 9, is host to Topeka. Arkansas City, No. 10 has a Thursday night game with Winfield. Utah State Defense Best NEW YORK (AP)-Utah State, Alabama and Pennsylvaia are woving the sternest clubs against ipposition attacks as the college football season heads into its final weeks, NCAA Service Bureau sta- ;istics show. Utah State ranks No, 1 in total defense and rushing defense after throwing up a roadblock against its last three opponents. In victories over Idaho, Colorado Slate University and Brigham Young, the Utags yielded only 118 yards over-all. In all eight of its games, Utah State has given up 929 yards for a 116.1 average, with 330 of these yards on the ground for a 41.3 average. Alabama is second in total defense and rushing defense and is first in scoring offense. 'Bama has held seven opponents to 911 yards, a 130.1 average, and in rushing has given up 386 yards, a 551 average.

"I (remember when Bob Turley won ' career tational at Pebble Beach (Jan. 18-21)," Nicklaus said. "I finished my amateur career on that course and I'd like to start my professional one there." The finish was his triumph in the U. S. Amateur. Snead, Johnson Co-Favorites MEXICO CITY (AP) — Sam Snead and Howie Johnson, the defending champion from Cog Hill, 111., are co-favorites in the 17th Mexican National Open Golf Tournament which begins today. Four 18-hole rounds will be played in the $10,000 tournament, with Snead making his first appearance since his suspension was lifted by the United States PGA. Johnson won last year with 72-hole total of 273. trip during which they lost two of three games. Boston (5-5-1) and Houston (45-1) are ahead of New York. Even if injured flanker back Don Maynard, their ace pass catcher returns to top form, the big problem still is the schedule. | "Look at its this way," says ] General Manager Steve Sebo, "the big story in the battle for the Eastern title is wound up right in that schedule. Boston is in a great spot, with only one more game against a team from teams mentioned in this week's poll include: Neodesha at PVedonia Shawnee Mission East at Wyandotte, Dodge City at Pratt, Sacred Heart at Hays St. Josephs, Lyons at Ellihwood, Valley Center at Derby, Phillipsburg at Norton, Wichita North at Wichita West. Other important games include the Southern Kansas League championship contest between un. , j beaten Medicine Lodge and once- he award several years ago and - h nf I wondered whether Id ever be smaller schoo , lucky enough to get it. It sure was worth waiting for. I can't think of another award I'd prefer over this one." In the voting announced Wednesday night in Boston, Ford, 31, received nine of a possible 17 votes from a committee of the Baseball Writers Association of America to join such previous award winners as Don Newcombe (1956), Warren Spahn (1957), Turley (1958), Early Wynn (1959) and Vernon Law (1960). Spahn, the brilliant Milwaukee southpaw, was second with six votes.
