I i;lit KU Coach Gives Credit To McFarland By JIM VAN VALKENBURG Associated Press Sports Writer Rodger McFarland has been coach Jack Mitchell's backfield trouble shooter at Kansas ever since he transferred from Texas A&M as a freshman and the fiery senior is having his best Series Catch Expensive One NEW YORK (AP)-Bobby Richardson's grab of a sinking line drive by Willie McCovey has to rank among the most expensive catches in major league baseball history. It was worth $120.859.44. , That's the difference in the j player pool shares split up by the i winning New York Yankees and the losing San Francisco Giants fro"! the 1!>62 World Series. The figures were announced Wednesday by Charles Segar, baseball secretary. A full winning share for the Yankees amounted to $9,882.74 and a full share for the losing Giants came to a record $7,291.49. The Yankees voted 34 full shares and the Giants 29. Richardson's grab of McCovey's liner ended the seventh game of the World Series, won by the Yan-j kees 1-0. The tying run was on i third and the 'Winning run on second. The Yankees' winning share is! the third highest. The Los Angeles | Dodgers got the most, $11,231.18 for a full share, after their vie- j tory over Chicago in 1959. The j New York Giants got $11,147.90 1 each following their 1954 . veep of j Cleveland. | The highest previous losing | share was $7,275.17 by the White Sox in 1959. Fernandez Signs To Fight Griffith LAS VEGAS, Nev. (AT) — Argentina's Jorge Fernandez has signed for a 15-round title bout against welterweight champion Emile Griffith in Las Vegas, Dec. 8. Griffith, of New York City, has met and defeated Fernandez twice, by decisions, but the Ar- j genthie earned a title rematch, I the Silver State Sports Club an-| nounced, by beating Charley Scott here Sept. 29. year as a run-pass quarterback. McFarland has gained 471 yards through the Jayhawkers' first five games, scoring twice and passing for two touchdowns. He has completed 18 of 38 passes for 264 yards. This is a highly respectable passing total on a club which plays 'grind-it-out football. And it's surprising when you consider McFarland, before this season, had caught more passes than he completed. "Rodger has done an outstanding job fpr us," Mitchell said. "He adopted a scheiuc 01 weight training to strengthen a battered throwing shoulder during the summer. That's the kind of boy he is." McFarland is averaging 94.2 a game running and passing. John HadI, the great Kansas back now with the pro San Diego Chargers, averaged 94.1 as a junior and 95.2 as a senior. No one is suggesting McFarland is the equal of Hadl, but the 185- pound Texan is an all-out performer who fires himself high for every game. He's had few equals as a backfield utility man, McFarland came to Kansas partly because Mitchell's enthusiasm was a match for his own. As a sophomore, he stabilized the deep defense. Last year, when the offense stalled the first two games Mitchell inserted him at quarterback against Colorado and he moved the club 279 yards on the ground. A week later, the left half spot was a problem due to Bert Coan's broken leg. McFarland Plugged the gap there and gained 334 yards in '61. Mitchell thinks his cluib will be able to bounce back from a tough defeat by Oklahoma, when lus squad was "as high as its ever been." McFarland's leadership is much of th e reason. Kansas plays at Oklahoma State Saturday. Guard Mickie Walker, a tough 205-pounder, transferred with McFarland from Texas A&M. Walker ranks second only to center Pete Quatrochi in tackles for the season. At Iowa State, halfback Dave Hoppmann was back to work after a touch of flu and coach Clay Stapleton warned: "We're going after Missouri for 60 minutes with no other thought in mind than an upset." _The Tigers are bothered with injuries, with halfback Bill Tobin expected to play only part time because of an ankle injury and tackle Bobby Brown still out.

Chilly weather prevailed at Penrose Stadium as Coach Dale Marine's Baby Buffs played their final home game of the season — and continued undefeated. Garden had won a previous meeting of the two rivals by 1413 at Scott on Sept. 25. The Baby Buffs have 'now won five straight games after tieing Great Bend Harrison, 6-6, in their season opener. Neither club managed a "counting" score in the first half, but Scott City did have a touchdown nullified by a holding penalty. That was a third-down 41- yard pass play with halfback Keith Thomas pitching to left end Monte Barker. The latter caught the ball behind Garden's defenders at the Buff 24 and sped in. Three plays after the second- half kickoff, Garden's Ronnie Mills covered a Scott fumble at the visitors' 39-yard line. Garden moved in to the game's first touchdown in seven plays. Duane Downtain, Ray Heinemann, and quarterback Dave Keller alternated carries in the thrust. The touchdown came on fourth down, with eight yards to go. Bill Taldo threw the ball just before he was downed. John Lightner nabbed it on the Scott 1-yard stripe and stepped in. The play covered 24 yards. Downtain (plunged for the extra point with 5:45 left in the third quarter. Two plays after the kickoff, Garden ddd it again. Stewart Nelson grabbed the ball away from a Scott Citian as the latter was downed on the Scott 26. Garden scored in nine plays. Key play in that drive was another fourth-down effort. The Buffs needed six yards on the final down, and Taldo went back to pass. He was bumped, rolled away, and headed around left end. He was hauled down at the Scott 8-yard stripe for a 14-yard gain and a first down. The Buffs scored on fourth down from the Scott three. Downtain took a handoff and slammed through Itft tackle with 45 seconds left in the third period. Taldo was stopped on run for conversion. Neither rival generated a threat in the final stanza. Garden coach Marine gave special credit to his defense, saying thos« Buffs made few errors. He said blocking was not good in the first half. Garden closes its ninth-grade season at Liberal'Tuesday night. Scott's club is coached by Leon Conway and Don Colton. The team has beaten Ness City (by 12-0) and lost to Garden twice and to Leoti (7-6). Two of the three defeats were by one point. Wednesday's game closed the season for that team. Conway said quarterback Donnie Geist, fullback David Roberts, left guard Gabe Lawrence, and left end, Monte Barker all played well on offcnne. Lawrence became ill and did not play the last half. On defense, Conway gave plaudits to corner linebackers Dave Roberts and Keith Thomas, center linebacker Carl Hale, and left tackle Mike Barber.

'1.50 Perhaps there Is no greater thrill to waterfowl hunters than to call the mallards over a set of decoys and shoot them. Most of the duck hunters of the Kansas City region are mallard shooters. We didn't live In this part of the country during the days of live decoys, but from the stories we hear from tine old timers it must have been something. Mallards were plentiful, the bag limit liberal and the hunters comparatively few. Then en me the dearth'. A combination of factors — drouth, drainage of marshlands and increased hunting pressure — caused the duck population to dwindle at an alarming rate. Use of livfe decoys was proliibited, seasons were shortened and bag limits eut. Most duck hunters racked up their shotguns. It just wasn't worth it. Federal and state agencies worked feverishly to preserve and to build up the duck population. It became a major project on both ducks and geese. Stud'ies were made of the nesting areas in tlhe Far Norton, All along the flyway as the binds migrated to the south in the fall and back north in the spring, they checked them. Marshlands at strategic points along the flyway were purchased and set up as feeding and resting spots. Moth«r Nature cooperated witih rain and snow in the nesting areas of the north. The picture brightened. Seasons were short and bag limits low, but a new breed of hunters emerged. Using wooden or plastic decoys and learning to blow a duck call, it became a thrilling sport to fool the ducks and have some shooting as a bonus. Most of the hunters got as big a thrill out of being able to call the mallards as they did in shooting. We learned to call under the tutelage of Harold Sankpill of Kansas City, a fine hunter. • We picked up pointers listening to others, especially Ernie Jelly and George Shaw. The rest we learned from actual experience. For us there is no finer tiling in the hunting field than to be able to bring in a stubborn bunch of mallards. It gives you that same feeling as dropping three quail on a covey rise. Really, •it would almost be worth it just to call in the mallards even if you couldn't shoot. It Will almost be that way this year with the situation so critical. One mallard a day with two in pocsession does not give the hunter much to go on. We just made a trip to Cy Young's place at Nestor Falls, Ontario, Canada. It has become a ritual with us to hunt and fish a few days at the opening of the duck season at their place on Lake of the Woods. This year especially, we wanted to check on the prospects for our duck season. We had flown over much of the nesting areas and had heard a lot of reports. What we saw on Lake of the Woods bears out the early warnings on the situation. Last year at this same time we saw a great many more mallards in this same area than we saw this trip. This section Is not noted as a good mal- Pag* 5 ttnrttan City Telegram Thursday, October 25, 1962 lard spot, but we saw fewer ther« this year than on any trip w« have made in years. We had some fine blue bill shooting and from all indications there will be plenty of them. If you know of a spot where the blue bills will pass on their journey southward, by all means watch it. There is not much you can do in the way of calling them by comparison to mallard, hunting, but when they buzz past, you had better be ready. Pass shooting at those crazy things is about the most exciting shooting we have experienced anywhere. This is especially true in the Lake of the Woods area with its hills and wooded islands. We have had them come over us in such a way as to make the hair stand up on the back of your neck- They swoop down out of the sky with their wings twist- ling like a hunch of jets, rolling and diving. They go through every kind of maneuver and contortion that you can imagine. They may make one pass over the decoys and not come back. They may plop down on the war ter right in front of you or they may make several passes. There is no pattern to what thev will do. However, one thing Is certain: they can drop out of the sky in an instant and be gone just as quickly! It's no sport to let them come In and plop down in the decoys, then shoot them as they rise. If you will strictly take them as they swoop past, we will personally guarantee you that there is no other winged target- that will put you to a greater test. Even when you see them coming they are tough, but in places where they come up on vou suddenly it is plain poison. They arc not as fine a s ttie mallard for the table and not as thrilling to work to a call, but in our book they are excitement personified.
