Oklahoma Back in Big 8 Title Picture By JIM VAN VALKENBURG Associated Press Sports Writer Missouri and Nebraska, ' th unbeaten and headed for a showdown at Lincoln, Neb., Nov. 3, and Oklahoma—once again in thct at Stillwater in Big Eight title picture—arc expected to sweep past second division teams Saturday. a game the Jay- hawkcrs must win to stay in title contention. A tougher defense makes Kansas the favorite. Showdown Week In WKEA Derby It's showdown week in the 1962 football race for the far-flung Western Kansas Education Assn. Spotlight will be on Jetmore Friday night where title favorites Jetmore and LaCrosse mix. A has shown steady improvement, big turnout of fans is expected Tl.o Longhorns surprised WKEA to be on hand. LaCrosse has been "juiced up" again in football after a number of seasons in the doldrums. Coach Jim Lewis' Leopards are all-winning and have been played close only once — 6-0 by rugged Kinsley. The Leopards have given up just three touchdo\>. > this fall. Other victims .of LaCrosse hav c been Ellis (by 20-0), Dighton (266). defending champion Ness City (25-0), Scott City (26-12), and Tribune (41-0). Jetmore is coached for the second straight season by Garlon Jarnagin, who formerly directed Kismet in 8-man football. The Kansas faces Oklahoma State! Dan Devine, who admits Miz- zou is getting better every week, sends his Tigers against Iowa State at Columbia. The Cyclones, despite their 57-19 romp over Colorado, aren't Ijkely to slow Missouri's momentum. Nebraska, whose 26-6 victory over Kansas State wasn't as impressive as Missouri's 23-6 clipping of Oklahoma State, should have little trouble with under manned Colorado at Boulder. Bud Wilkinson's Oklahoma team beat Kansas 13-7 and the message was loud and clear—the B'g R p ^ is back in the championship picture after a two - year absence. Wilkinson's rebuilding program may be a year ahead of schedule. It's interesting to note the Lcoti (20-14), and Scott City (260). By comparative scores and results, LaCrosse will be favored slightly Friday — but Jetmore followers by the w ; ay they rolled < over tough Scott City Friday ! night, blanking the Beavers. Hard-luck Dighton is now 2-4-0 I overall. Coach Joe Johns' Horn- j Oklahoma-Kansas game is the ets lost one game (7-6 to Jet- | more) on a conversion, another (2-0 to Scott City) on a safety, and another (7-0 to Leoti) by one touchdown. The other defeat was 26-6 by LaCrosse. Hornet wins have been a big 19-13 tippet over Hugoton (after trailing 13-0 in the first period) and 39-0 over the Garden City High B-team. Leoti, coached by Don Leuszler, is 2-3-1 overall against a rugged schedule. The Indians tied Ness City by 7-7 and have beaten Longhorns lost botl their first sharon Springs (26-0) and Digh- two starts to good competition: Cimarron and Kinsley, both by 6-0 margins. But the Longhorns have come back for four straigh*. wins, dunking Tribune (21-0), Dighton (7-6), ton (7-0). Losses have been to undefeated, untied, and unscor- ed-on Ulysses (by just 7-0), Scott (13-0), and Jetmore (20-14). only one played to date involving the top four teams in the conference. The Missouri- Nebraska clash will be a big one, but just one in a series of crucial games involving the top four. The race doubtless will go down to the final week, with an Orange Bowl berth tha prize. Oklahoma is a strong favorite over hapless K-State at Norman. The Wildcats haven't beaten an OU team since 1934, when Lynn Waldorf's league champs nosed the Sooners 8-7. Oklahoma won 17-6 last year and that was the closest K-State has con- to the Sooners sinc e 1939. Joe Don Looney, switched from Ness is directed ... new coach: alternate fullback to starting left —' i Jim Hayes and the Eagles have half, ripped Kansas for 115 yards FroshGridders Still Undefeated Garden City Junior High's two football teams are heading down the home stretch, and both swung into action this week. The Baby Buff ninths, coached by Dale Marine, entertain the Scott City ninths-tenths here at 7 p.m. Wednesday. That will be the next-to-last game of the season for Garden's ninths. They close at Liberal the night of Tuesday, Oct. 30. Garden's eighths, coached by Merle Altman, end their 1962 season Thursday afternoon. That will be at Ulysses at 2:30 p.m. Marine's ninths are undefeated, although they played a 6-6 standoff with Great Bend Harrison here in their season opener. Wins have been posted in the other four games: Scott City (14-13), Hugoton (19-0), Ulysses (20-0), and Dodge City (32-6). Wednesday's game between Garden and Scott will be a re- ptat. The Buffs won the first meeting at Scott on Sept. 25 by just one point. Altman's eighths are 1-2 for the season. They were shut out by Liberal (14-0) and Ulysses (12-0) in their first two games, but blanked Dodge City (6-0) last Tuesday. The Thursday game will also be a repeat. Garden will be try- tumbled far from their lofty perch of last fall. Only victory was by 34-0 over winless Tribune and the tie was 7-7 with Leoti. Losses have been to WaKeeney (7-6), LaCrosse (25-<M, and Victoria (32-0). Bill Blasi's Scott Beavers have been hurt by key injuries and are 3-2-1. Wins have been over Tribune (26-7), Leoti (13-0), and Di'ghton (2-0). Losses were to league leaders LaCrosse (26-12) and Jetmore (26-0). The tie was 7-7 to Oakley in the season opener for both. Tribune, coached by Cletus Dreiling, is winless in six outings and has scored only one touchdown. The Jackrabbits have been beaten, in order, by Sharon Springs (7-0), Scott (26-7), Jetmore (21-0), Syracuse (33-0), Ness (34-0), and La Crosse (41-0). Other games this week send Dighton to Tribune and Scott to Ness in WKEA action. Leoti entertains all-winning Lakin of the High Plains Conference. Leaguo standings: 1-2. Jetmore and LaCrosse 40-0; 3. Scott City 3-2-0; 4. Ness City 1-1-1; 5. Leoti 1-2-1; 6-7. Dighton and Tribunte 0-4-0. Paul Render Set to Retire NORTH FALMOUTH, Mass.

Only game remaining after tonight will be a final clash here ' on Monday night, Nov. 5, against: the Liberal B unit. Only a few changes have been ', made in the Garden lineup for ', tonight by Coach Dickerson.

Monte Deere, little Sooner quarterback who didn't practice all'week because of a "rein >n jury, was a key man in the winning drive. The Sooner line appeared as strong as those of past title teams. Halfback Johnny Rnland of Missouri raced 155 yards in 19 trips and took over the Big Eight lead with 518. Quarterback Jim Johnson, playing his best game, and the strong Mizzou line ad-justed quickly to a Cowboy defensive switch designed to stop MU inside. The Tigers simply went outside—with ease. At Nebraska, K-State shocked the Huskers with an 86-yard scoring pass on the first play, Larry Corrigan to Ralph McFillen, then drove to the Husker 6 before fumbling. Nebraska was in control from then on. It was *'State's first touchdown this season. Iowa State's outstanding halfback, Dave Hoppmann, scored three touchdowns and passed for another in leading the Cyclone victor?. Jack Mitchell, Kansas coach, had high praise for the Oklahoma line, saying it compared wi'h their national championship team of the mid-50s. "We just couldn't do much with their tackles — you know, they have four real good ones," Mitchell said. "The thing which hurt us the most was our poor punt coverage which helped keep us deep in our own territory most of the time after the first quarter. "They stopped our wide plays and yet we couldn't go inside either. Our passes didn't work after the first quarter. It was a .very frustrating game for our offense." Quarterback Rodger McFarland was the top Kansas ground gainer with 42 yards and 79 passing. Gale Sayers, fleet KU halfback, was held tj only 26 yards rushing. He caught two passes for 26 more. el to Scott City for a 7 p.m. clash against the Beaver reserves. It will be a return meeting of the two. Garden won the first game here on Sept. 17 by 28-0.

Lakin Leads as High Plains Conference Heads Downhill Play this week in the High Plains Conference is anti-climatic, for the league race is heading downhill after its big peak. Big game was Friday afternoon at Lakin where the undefeated Broncs shelled Elkhart by 3?-6. That virtually wrapped up the HPC title for Coach Keith O'Connor's Broncs. Other league games saw Holcomb pull a big surprise in playing Sublette to a 19-19 tie and Syracuse rap winless Satanta by 45-12. Johnson had an open date. Three league games are on tap this week and two should be interesting. Satanta closes its season at Holcomb Friday afternoon in what should be a close one. Syracuse goes to Sublette Friday night and the Larks could be fired up for that one. Elkhart entertains Johnson Friday night, and the host Wildcats are heavily favored. Lakin plays out of the league at Leoti, one of the better clubs in the tough WKEA. Elkhart also has a Tuesday night game at home against Busters Couldn't Generate Any Pep "We were flat. The 'boys just didn't have any pep or fire." That was Coach Homer Sailer's description of his Garden City Junior College Bronobust- ers this morning in their Friday night 7-0 loss at Hutchinson Juco. It marked the second week in a row that the Busters had been blanked. New Mexico Military Institute rapped the Busters by 4?.-0 at Roswell the week before. Salter added that the NMMI win may have had a carryover effect for the Busters against Hutch. "The team just didn't seem to get up for Hutch at all," he said.

Fireballs had both best team game of 714 and top team series of 2,024. Results: Southwest Sand Co. defeated Reed and Stinemetz by 3-1, total pins 1,920 to 1,873; Dairy King blanked Smith Sand by 4-0, 1,838 to 1,619; Fireballs scored 4-0 over C. R. Anthony's, 2,024 to 1,873. ious scoring threat in the Friday game until the end of the contest. At that point, the Busters had driven down to the Dragon 10. But time ran out. An interested pass in the third frame set up the game's only touchdown. Salter said he plans some changes in both his offensive and defensive lineups, but he won't know just who until later in the week. Garden has three more games left on its slate. The Busters play El Dorado here Saturday afternoon for Homecoming and close with Paulsons here Nov. 10. They play at undefeated Coffeyville on Nov. 2. Salter said the Busters will be at full strength Saturday for El Dorado. Back ih the lineup full- time will be quarterback Jerry Reagan, halfbacks Arlo Lindsey, and Marvin Wells, and tackle Tom Frazier. All have been injured. Moyer First Champion Of Junior Middleweights PORTLAND, Ore. (AP)—Portland's Denny Moyer reigns today as the first champion of the World Boxing Association's junior mid^ dleweight division. He won the crown Saturday night with a unanimous 15-round decision over veteran Joey Giambra of Los Angeles in a fast-paced •bout. Moyer weighed 153%, Gi- amfora 154. The gate was reported at $9,500 —not enough to cover the $6,000 guarantee to Giambra and the $4,000 to Moyer.

The status of knee injuries to key players at Colorado and Missouri was discussed at length by conference coaches at their annual pre-season meeting Sunday. As usual, the coaches predicted a closer, better - balanced race- with the champion losing two or three games. This seldom happens, but this season could be an exception. Winter said "you can't lose as mudh brain power and ability as Mike Wroblewski, Pat McKenzie, Richard Ewy and Warren Brown without feeling it." But he admitted the Wildcats will have a good team. Sox Walsetih, coach of Colorado's defending champions, said 6-foot-6 Ken Charlton remains a big question mark because of knee troubles. "Charlton had an operation on the knee last spring and right now he's limping and c a n't jump," Walseth said. "We hope he'll be ready and he'll have to play, anyway, if we hope to have a good team." Bob Vanatta, new Missouri coach, said Howard Garrett, 6- foot-7, 200-pound frontliner, underwent surgery last December for the knee he wrecked in Miz- zou's fifth game last season. But the knee still isn't strong enough. Vanatta said, to permit Garrett to take part in regular workouts. Dick Harp> said his Kansas team should be improved, with regular Al Correll becoming eligible the second semester and George Unself, a 6-foot-7 sophomore, providing a lift. Bob Stevens, new coach at Oklahoma, said he has the problem of teaching an entirely new offense, a high speed running game. Iowa State's Glen Anderson, Oklahoma State's Henry Iba and Nebraska's Jerry Bush said sophomores and reserves must come through for them.
