Cincy Considered MV Shoo-in Bill Hull Rolls 257 to Top American Action KANSAS CITY (AP) — Missouri Valley Conference basketball coaches have a variation of the old American League baseball song, "B|reak up the Yankees." In the Valley, it's "Break up Cincinnati." Cincinnati has won or shared the Valley championship five straight years and is rated a shoo-in for a sixth this season. The Valley coaches, in their pre-season meeting over the weekend, debated the only big question: "Can Cincinnati become the first team in history to take three straight national crowns?" A poll of the coaches snows a scramble among Drake, Wichita, St. Louis and Bradley for the runner-up spot in the Valley. Tulsa and North Texas .vill improve, but have a long way to 'go before challenging the leaders. Ed Juck,er, Cincy coac'.i, admitted he should have a fine team, with lettermen like Ron Bonham, Tony Yates, Tom Thacker and George Wilson returning. He also has newcomers Ron Kirck, a 6- 7V'2, 230-pounder, and Gene Smith, 6-5, 210 pounds. "Sure we should be tough," Jucker said. "But don't forget we lost Paul Hogue (All-Am, .ca and most valuable player of the NCAA finals) and five men through graduation. If we could find a replacement for Paul, we could b« tough. "If we can win the Valley, we'll have a chance. We might not even get to defend. This league's rough." Chuck Orsborn, whose Bradley Braves tied Cincy for '" t year's league title but lost in an NCAA playoff wasn't so optimistic. "We'll be lucky to finish in the top five," Orsborn said. "Gone are Chet Walker (three tim e All- America), Ed Wodka, Dick Peterson, Les Edwards and Mickey Tiedmann, Mack Herndon, 6-5, FAN FARE Bill Hull of the Pickups team rolled high individual game of 257 at Garden Bowl here Monday night as the American League completed its ninth week of action.

Ralph Miller of Wichita said he would "build around Dave Stallworth (6-7) and Errtie Moore (5-11). We'll be weak on experience and bench but have a couple of promising sophomores in Nate Brown (6-10) and Dav~ Leach (6-5)." "Watch Drake," Miller warned. "It could be a sleeper. They're big and have lots of talent." Maurice John hopes tis new men come through at Drake. WJlDton Texas Holds Slim College Poll Lead By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Texas clung to the lead today in The Associated Press' weekly football poll of siports writers and sportscasters in a tight battle with Alabama. It was the second consecutive week for Texas on top of the heap and the second runner- up week for Bear Bryant's Alabama team. ,» Northwestern shouldered into the higher echelon by upsetting Ohio State, moving from eighth to third place. Ohio State, beaten twice, became the first former 'If Gene We s t Hansen (6-6) and (6-4), Dave McCoy Mc- Game Assn. holds its monthly session. The meeting is set for 7 :30 p.m. at Civic Center. In charge will be Dr. H. R. Stone, club president. Thursday's meeting will be a prelude to the third annual buffalo feed which traditionary kicks off the pheasant-hunting season here. Plans for that event will be discussed in detail. The feed will run from 4:30 to 10 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 10 at Civic Center. Wilmer Cline, new state game protector for this area, will be introduced to club members at the meeting. Mitch Geisler of the Chamber of Commerce will present a program of gun safety. A new educational film will be shown. It will deal with hunting, fishing, and conservation. All sportsmen are invited to the meeting. Lemore (6-6) can devel > along with lettermen Larry Prins (6-10) Ray Quinn (6-8) and Billy Hahn (6-0), we could fool some people," John said. "Of course, we'll miss Jerry Foster and Marv Torrence, our leading scorers last year." John Bennington said his St. Louis Billikens " probably could win the title in any other conference in the country. Not in the Valley." There will be good height, better reserve stiength and more experience than last year," Bennington said. "On the other hand, we'll be slower and lack back- court depth. We're counting heavily on Garry Garrison, Donnell Reid and Dave Harris. If sophomores Rich Naes and Don Dee come through, things could look up." Tulsa has James King, last year's leading scorer in Valley games, and sharp shooting Gary Hevelone. Coach Joe Swank has added height in Carlos Gripado (6-6), Bill Howard (6-6), Larry Berke (6-5) and Bill Kusleika (6-3). Coach Charlie Johnson of North Texas State said: "It's about time we started to win a few. We've been learning from' the nation's best." He'll have a stronger bench and regular j better outside shooting with John Savage, third highest scorer in the league, and newcomers David Burns, Carl Miller, Wayne Hopkins and a pair- of juco transfers— Mike Long and Gordon Bailey. Johnson's toughest problem — the Valley schedule. Rams Lose Center For Rest of Season LOS ANGELES (AP) — Center Art Hunter probably is lost to the Los Angeles' Rams for the remainder of the season. Doctors say Hunter, who has been out for a month with a knee injury, appears to have a cartilage condition that will require surgery. Tackles Frank Varrichione and Larry Stephens are doubtful starters for Sunday's game at San Francisco with the 49ers. Packers Eye Perfect Season MILWAUKEE (AP) — The mighty Green Bay Packers are bucking virtual 1,000-to-l odds in shooting for the first perfect season in National Football League history. But the big question i s out: Who's going to beat them? The awesome machine molded by Coach Vince Lomibardi since he took charge in 1959 rolled to its sixth straight triumph despite first-half sluggishness by defeating the San Francisco 49ers 31-13 Sunday before a packed crowd of 46,010 at Milwaukee County Stadi um. Lombardi and his defending NFL champions naturally refuse to talk about an undefeated, untied season—something considered impossible in a rugged 14-game schedule capped by a title playoff. However, the Packers may be thinking along that line. Only one team, the Chicago Bears, has rolled through the reg ular schedule with a perfect record since the NFL was founded in 1921. And on both occasions the Bears were defeated in the championship game—by the New York Giants 30-13 in 1934 and by the Washington Redskins 14-6 in 1942.

Tvro Americans In Tennis Rankings NEW YORK (AP) — Charles (Chuck) McKinley and Darlene Hard are the top-rated American players in the unofficial world amateur tennis rankings. McKinley of St. Ann, Mo., is ranked No. 5 in the men's division, headedi by Australia's Rod Laver and Miss Hard of Long Beach, Calif., is ranked third in the women's division, topped by Margaret Smith of Australia.

Sally League Seeks AA Rank CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP)-The South Atlantic League, one of the oldest in minor leaguo baseball, has voted to seek elevation to AA status. The league, popularly known as the Sally, now is Class A. The directors, at a meeting here Sunday, also voted to ask that a major league team meet the Sally All-Stars in' the middle of the 1963 season. This would high-' light the 60th •anniversarM' celebration of the Sally. Permission of the Nat lal Association of Baseball, overseer of tho minor leagues, for the South Atlatic to become douible-A is considered a formality.-. The Eastern League also is expected to move up to AA from A. This 'would give baseball three AA Lea<gues, the Texas, Sally and Eastern. There are now nine teams in the Sally. And a Itfth possible entry, Nashville, Tenn. was given more time. Teams in the Sally and their major league tieups ar-; Asheville, N.C. (Pittsburgh); Knoxville, Tenn.

(AP) — There was a holiday at Hardin-Simmons Monday—about the most significant holiday in the university's history, athletically speaking. The football team had broken a 27-game losing streak, just one shy of 28 straight set by Kansas State in 1945-48 and equaled by Virginia in 1958-60. When Hardin-Simmon s beat Trinity, Tex., University 14-6 Saturday night, there was great rejoicing. If the team hadn't done it then, there wouldn't have been much chance of accomplishing it this week against Arkansas. But there was a lot of confidence that Hardin-Simmons would beat Trinity, the last team it defeated before the streak began. Executive Vice President George Graham told the students there would be a holiday on Monday if the team won. The teachers told the students they should prepare their lessons for Tuesday classes since there wouldn't be any. classes on Monda'y. Coach Jack Thomas was asked how it felt to lead the football team out of its miseries. "I felt that this team was determined to win this game no matter what the odds might be," said the coach. "They had been building up to it for some time. They j just had to win it. Any coach could have done it. It was the boys themselves. You'd have thought there was a circus in. towri-^in the early morning hours of Sunday. There were more firecrackers than a July 4 celebration. The honking horns haven't been silenced yet. Fullmer Puts Title on Line By BOB MYERS Associated Press Sports Writer SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -Utah's Gene Fullmer, who sometimes fights like a man trying to maul his way. out of a duffel bag, risks his share of the world middleweight title tonight against his foremost challenger, Dick Tiger of far-away Nigeria.

Ranger Game Is Canceled A B-team football game be tween Garden Olty and Scott City high schools — scheduled at Scott last night — was canceled. Scott City officials called to report that the football field there had been flooded by mistake. Efforts were made to have Scotl play the game here, instead, but transportation could not be ar ranged. Garden's calendar is full up for the rest of the season, so the game has been cancelled anc will not be played. Garden won the first meeting of the rivals here Sept. 17 b; 28-0. Norman Snead No Rookie Now WASHINGTON (AP) — When Vorman Snead last saw New York it wa s mainly from a hori zontal position. Unfriendly Giant linemen saw to that. It was, possibly, the most un pleasant afternoon the Washington jwarterback experienced in a long, rugged rookie season in the National Football League. Snead completed only seven of 20 passes that afternoon, had, two intercepted and New York smeared the Redskins 53-0—worst of a dozen beatings Washington endured last fall. What a difference a year makes! Sunday, big chief Snead—no longer an unsure rookie—leads an unbeaten band of Redskins into New York with one of the NFL's best passing records. The Redskins (4-0-2) lead the^NFL's Eastern Division instead "of the Giants (4-2). Tlie lanky sophomore quarterback has 'connected on 84 of 142 passes—almost 60 per cent^-for 1.S34 yards and 10 touchdowns.

England to Get Chance at Cup NEW YORK (AP) — England, shut out in its last effort to break American domination of yacht- ng rs America's Cup racing, will get another opportunity to wrest the goblet from the United States n 1964. By that date, America will have the cup, how symbolic of 12-meter yachting supremacy, for 113 years. The decision to race in 1964 was readied Monday when the New York Yacht Club accepted a British challenge. At the same time, the British were notified again that their challenge for 1963 could not be accepted. In the latest series of America's Cup races, the U.S. defender Weatherly defeated; the challenging Australian Gretel four races io one. The British yacht Sceptre iailed in the previous bid in 1958, losing four straight races to the Columbia. Commodore H. Irving Pratt of the New York Yacht Club sent a cable to the challenging Royal Thames Yacht Club Monday, notifying them of the acceptance for 1964. Problems, More Problems Warriors, Wilt to Open NBA Against Pistons SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — After problems and more problems, the transplanted San Francisco Warriors andi Wilt Chamberlain make their debut in the National Basketball Association tonight, facing the Detroit Pistons.

Reed told tha Byline Club that the colleges have no desire to ; • destroy' the AAU. "If the AAU is stamped out it will be of its own doing," he said. • Reed said it wasn't correct to call it a fight between the AAU and the National Collegiate Athletic Association.

"They are made up of high schools, junior colleges,' be affected." colleges and independent people who believe some better organization of the sport is needed than that provided by the AAU. The federations believe there is room for revision of the monopolistic authority the AAU exercises." Reed said the AAU has questioned tlie legality of scholarships and grants-in-aid to college athletes who want to compete in tlie Olympic Games. "I- have been assured by the president of the International Olympic Committee that Big Ten athletes will not be affected," he said. "And if this is so, I can assure you other athletes will not tion of College Commissioners * a ?[ Monday. "The target of the elbow law," Bunn said, "is the swath cutter —the player who leaves broken teeth and cut heads in his wake when he comes out of a mixup under the goal clutching the basketball." Swinging the elbows will mean loss of the ball, if the violater has it in his possess, even if he hits no one with his arms, Bunn explained. If body contact is made, a personal foul will be called against the elbow swinger. Eight Trotters Meet Thursday Y-ONKERS, N.Y. (AP)-Su Mac Lad of the United States has been made the early 8-5 favorite for the $60,000 United Nations Trot at Yonkers Raceway Thursday night. Eight trotters, foor from the United States and four from for- eigh countries, will meet in the IVa-mile race that is designed to determine the 1962 world trotting champion. Su Mac Lad drew the No. 2 post position and Duke Rodney, another U.S. horse, was made the second choice at 7-2 although he drew the outside No. 8 spot. The third choice is France's Ozo, winner of the Transoceanic Trot last Thursday in which the top four finishers qualified as the foreign representatives in the race. Ozo will start from tne No. 3 post and was listed at 9-2. Other starters and their odds include Porterhouse, United States, 6-1; Tie Silk, Canada, 8-1: Julienne, Sweden, 12-1: and Elaine Rodney, United States, and Ravioli, Belgium, both 15-1. National League pennant drive of the San Francisco Giants and then the World Series. Tonight's date at the Cow Palace conflicts with the Gene Fullmer-Dick Tiger middleweight championship fight at Candlestick Park. And two veteran players on whom they'd counted won't be ready. Still Coach Bob Feerick looks for a solid showing from a club numbering two rookies as corner men. The opener is scheduled at 9 p.m. to accommodate fans who might want to watch both it and the fight that starts a 7:30. Chamberlain, holder of virtually every NBA scoring record, heads the list of Warriors who transferred with the franchise from Philadelphia in the $850,000 deaj last spring. But despite his 7-foot-l frame, the Warriors may lack over-all height for the NBA campaign. "Because of Wilt, we may be regarded as a big team," said Feerick, a former NBA star who quit as coach and athletic director at nearby Santa Clara University to take over the Warrior reins from Frank McGuire when the team moved West. "His height helps our over-all average, of course, but individually, right now, we're comparatively undersized, particularly in the front court." Probable starters up front are rookies Wayne Hightower, at 6-8 from Kansas, and Dave Fedor, 6-6, from Florida State. They don't sound short, but at the same spots the Pistons have Ray Scott at 6-9 and Bailey Howell at 6-7, both weighing 215 while Hightower goes at 205 and Fedor at 195.
