Buffs, Demons Meet Tonight * * * Homecoming, 1962, cornea up tonight for Garden City High's football squad. Coach John Dickerson's Buffs mix with arch-rival Dodge City in a key West Central Kansas League match. Xiekoff time at Penroae Stadium is 7:30 p.m. Dodge is a solid favorite tonight, but the form chart isually is discarded when the Red Demons and Buffs come to grips. The Demons — coacned by Bob Gerard for the tenth consecutive year — must win tonight to stay in contention with Great Bend and Lamed for the WCKL crown won last fall by Garden City. Last week, Lamed dropped the Demons by 7-0. handing Dodge its first defeat. The Demons previously had beaten Kansas City Sumner (18-6), Russell (13-6), Liberal (13-8), and Hays (7-0). Garden takes a 2-3 record into Garden-Dodge Rivalry Dates Back to 1903 Dodge City's Red Demons and Garden City's Buffaloes renew one of Southwest Kansas' oldest gridiron rivalries here tonight. The two first met in 1903 when Dodge won by 34-0. But later that season the two met again, and Garden earned a 0-0 tie. Dodge City records show that the two rivals have played 58 times. Dodge has won 40 times, Garden 15 times, and there have been three ties. Gard*n'$ firtt win in the series was in 1906, but the score of that game is not available. The two played twice in 1910, with Dodge winning by 3-0 and 5-2. Two games were split in 1907, with Dodge winning by 6-0 and losing by 0-22. In 1912, Dodge lost the first game by 6-18 but won the second by 10-0. Biggest win for Dodge was by 69-0 in 1927. Smallest margins of victory for the Demons were by 7-6 in 1923 aradi by 13-12 in 1953. Garden's biggest win was by 56-6 in 1920. Smallest margin of victory was by 13-10 in 1925. The "city" series was enlivened bv the addition of a hatchet for the 1938 game — the winner to take the hatchet as evidence of supremacy on the field of football battle. Dodffe has won 16 of the 23 "hatdiet" games. Garden i s currently in possession of the prize because of last [• year's 33-12 victory. G a r d e n's last previous win was by 20-14 in 1956.

Odds Against Gene Fullmer SAN FRANCISCO (AP)—"I'm going out to try and knock him out," champion Gene Fullmer said today of his World Boxing Association middleweight title fight next Tuesdr, night against Dick Tiger of Nigeria. "To say flatly you're going to knock out a man who has had 60 fights might get you in trouble, but I'm certainly going to try," declared Fullmer, who isn't happy with the 7-5 odds currently against him. The champion from West Jordan, Utah, declared, "those odds aren't right. He's built up on guys I'd already leat. "I hope I make that so-called smart money not so smart." Asked if he were ready to fight Paul Fender to try and settle the divided middleweight title situation, Fullmer replied, "I was ready before when they called the fight off, but now I will have to get over this one, before I look forward to fighting anyone else." Fender is recognized as champion by New York, Massachusetts FAN FARE ELECTRIC CARTS BSYONP THIS POINT , By Walt Ditztn IF 1 WAS (SONNA \WAUK.

Big Changes Due in College Football Ranks By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS There's only one thing certain about this weekend's major college football games: There'll be some changes made. Four of the nationally ranked teams lest each other in a couple of Saturday games that cotiM have a vital Bearing on bhe No. 1 spot in the nation, the Southwest Conference title and the Big Ten championship. Those match seventh-ranked Arkansas against top-dog Texas at Austin and sixth-ranked Ohio State against No. 8 Northwestern on the Buckeyes' home field. Since it figures that someone is going to lose in those two, the national rankings are due for a sliakeup for the fifth week in a row. Mighty Alabama, edged out of the No. 'l spot this week, is counting on just that—a s'hakeup—in its hopes to regain the top spot. But to do so, Bear Bryant's defense-minded Crimson Tide has to get past Tennessee, which is much tougher than its 0-3 record would indicate. That one is due for regional television coverage, as is Oregon (34) at Air Force (3 1) and Rice (0-2-1) at Southern Methodist (0-3). ' The weekend program opens tonight with Maryland (4-0) at Miami. Fla. (3-1). It features a clash of two of the nation's top quarterbacks, George Mira of Miami and Maryland's Dick Shiner. Other games Saturday involving nationally ranked teams in elude California at third ranked Southern California, No. 4 Louisiana State at Kentucky. No. 5 Mississippi vs. Tulane at Jackson, Miss., No. 9 Washington at Stanford and Iowa ait No. 10 Wisconsin. The Texas-Arkansas affair figures to be the !)»» one. Should Arkansas pull off the upset (Texas is favored by 5\{- points), the Razorbacks would arnoear to be in good shape to claim a fourth straight title. They were co-champions last season. The Ohio State-Northwestern clash at Columbus shapes urn as scoring circus. Ohio State (2-1) owns the nation's best ground attack and Northwestern (3-0) da fans the best passing attcak. The Buckeyes rank as a one- touchdown favorite. Alabama (4-0) the defending national champion, will need a decisive victory over Tennessee to regain the top spot, and Tennessee has long been an Alabama jinx when playing on the Vols home field. Speaking of Sports By BOB GREEK Telegram Spot Editor Yesterday's mail brought this letter to the Telegram Sports desk. "I just completed getting the stamps to put on my hunting and fishing license all set for the coming season. The cash outlay adds up to the down payment of an elk hunt a few years ago. "I think the Fish and Game Commission is overlooking some bets for added revenue. No doubt we should have to buy the following stamps: crow, jackrabbit, picnicking, skiing, carp, bullhead (if over 4 inches), and probably some others. "I would like to suggest the department sell the Finney County CCC acreage and take part, of the money and build a couple ' of new "2' 1 holers and a pond or two someplace west of Highway 283 and not take the money to the eastern part of the state like they did the lease money from the buffalo pasture a few years back. "If the duck shortage is as bad as the limit indicates the season should bn close u tight. "I don't like to eat mud hens and fish ducks but sure would like a place to go fishing. —Signed) Ray Denchfield, 705 North 5th. Pag* 3 Garden City Telegram Friday, October 19, 1962 Bill Rigney Named Manager of Year INDIAN WELLS, Calif. (AP)There was a tinkling of cocktail glasses and happy talk in the background'as Bill Rigney was called to the telephone m the lounge of the Indian Wells Country Club. The call advised Rigney that he had been named the 1962 Manag-1 er of the Year in the American League in the annual poll by The Associated Press. The vote was overwhelming for the pilot of the Los Angeles Angels, whose third place finish this 'year might be .termed, the critics' No. l consternation of the year. They had overwhelmingly picked Rigney's Angels to finish wdl in the second division in this, only their second year in major league baseball. Of the 108 votes cast by members of the Baseball Writers Association, 80 went to the Angel skipper. Sam Mele of the second place Minnesota Twins was second, with 25, and Ralph Houk of the World Champion Yankees was third with three. The reaction of Rigney, who is playing here in the annual major league ballplayers' golf tournament, matched the merriment in the background of the lounge. "Naturally," Rigney led off, "I am very honored. I can only say at first that there are other managers in the league. .Sam Mele, Houk—who deserve this honor as much as I do. "A lot of our managers did remarkable jobs, so I am particularly happy and pleased I feel wonderful." Throughout the season Los Angeles baseball fans and writers used such adjectives as "amazing" and "as'-unishing" for the Angels, and "remarkable" was the favorite for the 43-year-old Rigney.. For the remarkables actually led the league on the traditional July 4 and were still tough and in contention by Labor Day. In the final two weeks Los Angeles tailed off and wounl up 10 games behind New York and five behind Minnesota. The above letter carries an ages-old complaint: Western Kansas' sportsman money is being siphoned out to help eastern Kansans. I don't hunt or fish, but am deeply interested in helping improve those sports in our region whenever I can. The Telegram boosts such projects whenever possible. In recent years, I have lived and worked in similar areas of Kansas, Nebraska, and Colorado — and it gets a little tiring of hearing the same complaints over and over again. At Seottsbluff and .lliance in sparsely-populated western Nebraska we heard this: those folks around Omaha and Lincoln get •all the breaks, all the money, all the roads, etc. At Lamar in thinly-populated southeastern Colorado it's this: folks in Denver, Colorado Springs, Boulder, etc., get all the breaks. Here in sparse ly-populated Southwest Kansas we hear this: eastern Kansans get a'l the lakes, Wichita gets all the game, etc. It's a little frustrating, unless you stop and look at some of the logic of it all. Of course the heavil -populated regions get the big breaks — and they certainly should. If you or I were a politician, wouldn't we be sensitive to wher e the greater block pf votes lie? Yesterday 1 took a map and blocked off our 19 Southwest Kansas counties. Here they are: Greeley, Wichita, Scott, Lane, Ness, Hodgeman, Finney, Kearny, Hamilton, Ford, Clark, Meade, Seward, Stevens, Morton, Stanton, Grant, Haskell, and Gray. Roll the population in all 19 counties together — and you know what it amounts to? March, 1959 figures show just 109,630 people. NOW look east. The same census shows the city of Wichita alone with 242,131 people. Topeka alone has 115,744. Kansas City, Kan., has 131,360. So if you were a politician, wouldn't you give m~re to the place with more population? You bet your boots you would — or you wouldn't be in that office next time around. And is there anything wrong with the system:' Shouldn't majority rule? Isn't that democracy? And let's not be so idealistic that we cry that our state- appointed agencies 1 taken out j of politics. I So why not let's be a little • more realistic, broaden our view, i and quit harping about how we : are getting hooked at someone S else's benefit. It's old stuff — you get it in every state 'where a population imbalance exists liko Kansas. I don't say roll over and play dead. Make noise, of course. But don't cry "wolf" ever time a small irritant comes up. And be a little more appreciative. I've been a Southwest Kansan just four years, but 1 know this. Folks here who think the state lakes situation is bad ought to se t other states where It's really bad. Our area isn't one of ample rainfall, so you can't just put a ; dam here and expect a fishing pond. Recent history has shown that several times ov... I cannot vouch for how good or how bad th e fishing is, but here are some of the state lakes not far away from Garden City. And when I say not far, I wonder how many persons really feel every town should have a state lake on its city limits? On the Cimarron near Elkhart are the newly-developed seep ponds. Syracuse has Hamilton County Lake — and the bass fishing is pretty good, I'm .old. Then there's Lakf McKinney, whether in ideal condition or not. There was the stat- lake near Ulysses, which prov<.. you just can't put lakes anywhere. HOW about Meade County Lake, Clark County, Hodgeman, Ford County, Lake McBride at Scott Park, Logan County. Finney County Lake is just a' ut through — but it's not the state's fault. They didn't build the upstream ponds there. So there's no fishing places in our area? That's 10 lakes right there — good, bad, or not. And all are within 100 miles of Garden. Maybe folks just don't know about them. That, too, is not the state's fault. Should they build lakes, then lead the fishermen to them? I have heard our state fish and game commission criticized again and again. First it was Dave Leahy, now the new director George Moore. I am personally very favorably impressed with Moore from the few dealings I have had. Let's give him some, backing — instead of constant bickering. It's like the job of secretary of agriculture: Wallace, Brannan, Benson, Freeman — every one of them has been criticized continually. It's the situation that's at fault, and the director ! is the fall guy — be he fish man l or farm man. On the ma'tter of taking money out of Finney County for : the rest of the state: this is logical, too. It's part of the framework of government. Should all Finney County money stay here? Should all Scott County money stay there? If it did, the rich counties would stay rich and the poor would stay poor. It's the job of the overseer to do the leavening up — whether •we like it or not, and whether we gain or lose. Hank Bauer to Oriole Post BALTIMORE (AP) — Hank Bauer, former manager uf the Kansas City Athletics and veteran of nine World Series, has been signed as a coach by the Baltimore Orioles. Bauer, 40, resigned his position with the A's at the end of the 1962 season. He had managed the Kansas City team since June 19, 1961, when he replaced Joe Gordon. Bauer spent more than 13 full seasons as an outfielder in the American League, all but two with the New York Yankees. During his stint with the Yanks from 1948 through 1959, he played in 53 World Series games and holds a series record of having hit safely in 17 straight games.

KU-OU Top Big 8 Action Jay hawks Rated Slight Favorite By JIM VAN VALKENBURG Associated Press Sports Writer Kansas hopes to prove its rating as a Big Eight football title contender against an Oklahoma team hungry for a return to glory and some teeth-rattling line play is in prospect tomorrow at Lawrence. A sell out crowd oi 38,000 is expected for the game, top contest of the day in the Big Eight. The winner will be th e chief threat to Missouri and Nebraska, boch unbeaten and favored to stay that way this week. Oklahoma State plays at Missouri, Kansas State at Nebraska and Colorado at Iowa State in the other conference games. Jack Mitchell's Jayhawkers won their first two conference games over Colorado 35-8 and Iowa State 29-8 and rule a narrow favorite over the Sooners because of a more'talented backfield. It will be the conference opener for Oklahoma, coached by Bud Wilkinson, the dean of Big Eight coaches. The Sooners • showed great defensive play but made too many offensive mistakes in losing ' two of three against Syracuse, Notre Dame and Texas. Kansas has a pair of outstanding halfbacks in Gale Sayers and Tony Leiker. Sayers le. 's the Brg Eight with 403 yards rushing. Oklahoma has two outstanding fullbacks in Joe Don Looney and Jim Grisham. "It should be a great game," Mitchell said, "this is the best OU line in four years. If they had one great halfback like Billy Vessels they'd be as good as their national championship team of the mid-5us." Wilkinson, who coached Mitche in the late 40s, said "this game is vital to our season. We can win if We have another great team effort like our game at Texas, rated no. 1 in the nation, handing the longhorns all their points on fumbles. At Missouri, Dan Devine is expected to have the Tiger offense at full throttle to get past Okla-! homa State, 'which looked good in' clipping Colorado 36-16 last week. ' Mizzou's outstanding defense, • which hasn't allowed a touchdown on the ground all season, gives j th e Tigers the edge. Nebraska is expected to make it five straight with ease over a K-State team which has yet to score this season. Dennis Claridge a big, fast quarterback and top passer, is the trigger man in Bob Devaney's multiple offense. Iowa State is expected to bounce back from successive defeats to Oregon State (35-39), Nebraska i (22-36) and Kansas for a victory over Colorado, which will have i four regulars out with injuries.
