3rd Unbeaten Team In Ottawa U History The Ottawa Braves have done it again. ... For the second time in a row and the third in some 60 years of football at Ottawa University, the Braves have finished the football season undefeated. The school's first all-victorious football season came in 1938 when the Braves of Coach Dick Godlove, led by such greats as Don Meek, Eugene Harding and Leonard Hofstra, won all eight of their games, scoring 134 points and allowing the opposition only 18. Victims of the powerful 1938 Braves were Haskell, 14-0; McPherson, 74; Bethel, 20-0; College of Emporia, 28-0; Baker, 27-0; William Jewell, 13-6; Kansas Wesleyan, 12-6, and Bethany, 13-6. After 22 years, the Braves of 1960 repeated the feat as the Dick Peters-coached club rolled up 339 points in nine Kansas Conference games while allowing opponents only 91. Scores of 1960 games were all- victorious Ottawa over Friends, 53-0; Bethel, 34-0; Sterling, 6221; C of E, 46-21; Kansas Wesleyan, 39-20; Southwestern, 13-7; McPherson, 30-0; Bethany, 48-14, and Baker, 14-8. The new Braves of 1961 repeat ed, again in a 9-game conference schedule, as they rolled-up 289 points while giving up only 42. Scores of 1961 Ottawa victories were Friends, 28-0; Bethel, 20-0; Sterling, 37-0; C of E, 20-10; Kansas Wesleyan, 38-13; Southwester- ern, 42-0; McPherson, 34-0 Beth any, 28-6, and Baker, 42-13. Sparked by Herb Sutton, who led the nation's small colleges in scoring with 125 points, the 1961 Braves amassed 3,258 yards 2,428 of which were gained on the ground. Using a more balanced attack this year's club picked up 3,04; yards, 2,287 on the ground anc 756 yards on 36 completed pas& es in 87 attempts. Defensively, the 1961 confer ence champions allowed their op- ponets 1,467 yards, with only 40' of these coming on passes. Las year's winners gave up 1,9$ yards, of which 882 were through the air. Also more balanced than 1960 was the scoring. Leading the club this year was Mike Brown, to Ottawa's opponents the most offensive end in he conference. Brown scored 72 points on four touchdowns, five ield goals and 33 extra points. le was followed by Tailback John McAninch and Fullback Richard Spong with nine touchdowns each for 54 points. Others scoring this year -for the Jraves were Ken Smart and Jon Crebbs with five touchdowns for 30 points each; Dan Coons with wo touchdowns for 12 points; Larry Young, Duane Bissett, Jerry Harshaw, Bob Rose, Fred Thompson and Floyd Scott with one touchdown each for six points, and Ed Hampton with one extra point.

Hoppmann Total Offensive Leader By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Iowa State gained a total of 266 yards last weekend in a 16-13 loss to Nebraska. Big Eight statistics show that tailback Dave Hoppmann either ran or passed for all but 5 of the 266. Hoppmann gained 85 of his 261 yards on the ground to break the Cyclones one season individual rushing record he set a year ago as a sophomore. He now has carried the ball 198 times for 872 yards. The 6-1, 178-pound junior completed 11 of 22 passes against the Cornhuskers, good for 176 yards. This performance left Hoppmann in a commanding lead as the Big Eight rusher and almost assures him of the league's total offense crown. He has attempted 79 passes and completed 38 for 657 yards or a total offense of 1,529 yards. At his present pace of better than 191 yards rushing and passing a game, Hoppmann should have little difficulty in breaking the total offense record of 1,773 yards for Iowa State set by Bill Weeks in 1950. Other leaden this we include Colorado's Gale Weidner as No. 1 in passing with 50 completions out of 114 attempts for 753 yards. Dick Limerick of Iowa State tops the receivers with 18 receptions for 341 yards. Dennis Claridge continues as ihe punting leader with a 39.8 yard average on 34 punts. • Leon Mavity of Colorado is No. 1 on punt returns with 7 runbacks for a 17.1 yard average. Kansas' versatile quarterback, John Hadl, still leads in scoring with 6 touchdowns for 36 points. Only two conference games are scheduled this weekend. Colorado plays at Nebraska and Kansas State at Missouri. In non-league action, Kansas goes to California, Oklahoma plays the Army in New York City, Iowa State is at Tulsa and Oklahoma State meets Houston at Stillwater.

Edna's Birthday Never Forgotten THE OTTAWA HERALD Tuesday, November 14, 1961 EDINBURGH, Scotland (AP)Nineteen years ago Robbie Wilson, 6, got bored with his sister Edna's fourth birthday party and ran out to play in the street. The driver of a passing automobile swerved but hit the child and killed him. The driver carried the boy into the house and collapsed. A doctor treated Robbie's parents and the motorist for shock. Then the driver left. He didn't tell the Wilsons his name. They knew only that he lived in England, in the city of Sunderland. A year later, on Edna's next birthday, a huge parcel arrived for the sjirl. It was a rocking horse. There was no sender's name. The only clue was the postmark: Sunderland. On her sixth birthday, Edna got a child's cycle. Again it came from Sunderland. Each year since Edna has received an expensive birthday present from Sunderland. As she grew older the gifts became more sophisticated — a beauty set, French perfume, cosmetics. When she became old enough to drive, money arrived to pay for driving lessons. A beautiful evening gown was her 21st birthday gift. A few weeks ago Edna married New Many Wear FALSE TEETH | With Mere Comfort FASTEETH, a pleasant alkallm (non-acid) powder, holds false teeth Snore firmly.
