THE OTTAWA HERALD Wednesday, Nov. 15, 1961 Manhattan Wins State Grid Title TOPEKA (AP) — For the first time in six years a new team has won the season's top honor in Kansas high school football. Manhattan, opening with a victory over the leader for the last five years, Lawrence, went on to post a 9-0 record and finish in the No. 1 spot in the 15th annual Associated Press Kansas high school football poll. It was only the third time since the poll was inaugurated that Manhattan had finished in the top 10. In 1952 and again in 1955 Manhattan was ranked 5th. In addition to heading the poll for the last five season. Lawrence also was No. 1 in 1947 and in 1952. Other teams winning top honors have been Wichita North in 194S and 1949; Topeka in 1950 and 1955: Wyandotte in 1951; Arkansas City in 1953 and Pittsburg in 1954. Kansas sports writers and broadcasters gave Manhattan the No, 1 ranking by a comparatively narrow margin over Independence. Independence climaxed a perfect season by downing Coffeyville, 1813, for its 40th consecutive victory over a period of five years. Garden City, also sporting a perfect 1961 record, finished third, Lawrence, bounding back after two early-season losses, finished 7-2 and was ranked 4th. Positions in the poll are based on points computed from 10 team ballots submitted by participating writers and broadcasters. A first place designation gives a team 10 points, second, nine points, and so on. Manhattan received 198 points and had 10 first-place votes. Independence got 180 points and six votes for first. Rounding out this year's final top 10 are Coffeyville, Wichita East, Leavenworth, Salina, Arkansas City, Wichita Southeast.

The Browns' fullback, now sec- \ ond among the all-time NFL rushers, came up with his fourth straight game in which he's gained more than 100 yards Sunday in Cleveland's 17-6 conquest •of the Washington Redskins. The performance, his best of the campaign with 133 yards, increased his 1961 rushing total to 853 yards on 191 carries or 73 yards more than runnerup Jim Taylor of Green Bay, the NFL's weekly statistics showed today. Brown now has collected 5,908 yards rushing during his 5-year NFL career. Only Baltimore's Joe Perry has more yards—7,748 in 12 seasons. Bart Starr of Green Bay, the Western Conference leader, zoomed into the lead in passing with his efforts in the Packers' 31-28 squeeze by the Chicago Bears and stepped ahead of Sonny Jurgensen of the Philadelphia Jjjagles, who fell into a first-place Eastern Conference tie with New York by bowing to the Giants 38-21. Starr has completed 110 of 190 passes and Jurgensen 144 of 257. New York's Del Shofner regained the top spot among pass receivers with 46 receptions after grabbing eight against Philadelphia. Johnny Sample of Pittsburgh continued to lead the interception artists with eight. Texas, Ole Miss Lead In Offense NEW YORK (AP)-Texas' top- ranked Longhorns and Mississip- )i's Rebels, who could wind up the season in a Cotton Bowl test of strength, dominate major col lege football's offensive departments along with unheralded Utah State. Once-beaten Ole Miss, sixth- ranked in the nation, is the top over-all offensive eleven in the country with an average of 424A yards gained on the ground and in the air each game. Texas is the runnerup at 412.4 with Utah Slate third at 399.9, according to NCAA Service Bureau figures released today. Texas, however, is No. 1 in rushing and the only team over the 300-yard mark with a per game ave of 315.6. Utah State is second with a 282.3 mark while New Mexico State follows on a 272.3 pickup every outing. In passing, Texas and Utah State are out of it, but Mississippi is second behind leading Detroit. The Titans have compiled a 206.0 average passing to Mississippi's 172.8 with oly Cross third at 171.9. The potent trio takes over again in scoring with Utah State grabbing the No. 1 spot by averaging over 41.1 points a game, Texas holding the runnerup position with 33.3 and Mississippi tied for third with New Mexico State at 33.1.

Hard Workout For California BERKELEY, Calif. (AP) — Coach Marv Levy sent his California Bears through a full-scale, one-hour scrimmage Tuesday in preparation for the team's next football, game Saturday against Kans'as in Berkeley.

(Tippy) Dye, Wichita University athletic director, and football coach Hank Foldberg of the Wichita school Tuesday were mentioned in published reports as likely candidates for the top athletic jobs at Nebraska University. Nebraska hasn't had an athletic director since Bill Orwig resigned April 1 to go to Indiana. The contract of Bill Jennings, football coach, expires in Febru ary and there has been no indica tion whether he will be rehired or leave. Jennings told reporters Tuesday he has not discussed "with anyone today or ever' 1 the matter of con tract renewal, a possible step-up to athletic director, resignation or other future plans. In two years at Wichita Fold berg's teams have won the 4-team Missouri Valley Conference football championship both seasons. Dye is a former Ohio State foot- i ball and basketball star and coached basketball at Ohio State and Washington University before going to Wichita as athletic director.

Coz showed why again Tuesday night. With Boston Coach Red Auer- jach sitting out the first of a ;hree-game suspension for tussles with National Basketball Association referees, the veteran back- court star took over and led the once-beaten Celts to their seventh victory—119-117 over the stum- Dling St. Louis Hawks. Cousy made two key moves. The first was to play Bill Russell all the way without a rest. Russell responded with 35 points, iis usual bundle of rebounds, and a defensive show that limited Jlyde Lovellette, a 23-point a ;ame scorer, to just two points. The second was to give Cousy a rest for the entire second period. Cooz came back freshened after the intermission and tossed in two timely baskets in the fourth period. The Celts stretched their Eastern Division lead to 2'/4 games over Philadelphia, which lost to New York's hustling Knicks 124122 in the windup of a doubleheader at Madison Square Garden—the onlv other action in the Ditka Top Rookie? CHICAGO (AP) - Mike Ditka, an All-American at Pitt last year, is aiming for professional honors which could easily include the National Football League's rookie of the year award. The 21-year-old end, who was the Chicago Bears' No. 1 draft choice last winter, could become the club's first rookie of the year since Harlon Hill snagged the honor along with a lot of passes in 1954. These days Hill plays on defense and the fans who used to cheer his pass-catching exploits are now shouting for the 6-foot-3, 230-pound Ditka. In his first eight professional j games, Ditka has grabbed 33 j passes for 771 yards and nine j touchdowns. Ditka specialized in j the long ones partially because of j his running ability. 1 One of his touchdown passes I was for 76 yards and three were at 46 yards. None was less than 15 yards. Once he catches a pass he runs like a halfback and when he can't cut away from would be tacklers he simply bowls them over. Ditka's biggest game was in a 31-28 loss to Green Bay last Sunday when he caught nine passes for 190 yards and three touchdowns. By HAROLD CLAASSEN Associated Press Sports Writer NEW YORK (AP) - The stock market averages keep going up and up. The college football forecasting averages keep going down and down. Will the twain ever meet? Last week's selections averaged .733 (44 correct, 16 wrong). This week's picks: Texas over Texas Christian: It is TCU's turn to stage another of the many upsets that dot this venerable series but the 1961 Longhorns are not that complacent. Alabama over Georgia Tech: Tech has vowed to defeat every team that whipped the Engineers last year and that includes Alabama. It won't be a cakewalk but Alabama's defense is too rugged. Ohio State over Oregon: Bob Ferguson will make the West Coast team wish it had declined the invitation to visit the Midwest Louisiana State over Mississippi State: Jerry Stovall and Wendell Harris hit with the best and will decide the issue. Minnesota over Purdue: Sandy Stephens never fires that ball until he sees the white in the eyes of his recievers. Purdue already had engineered two upsets this season and that's enough for one year. Mississippi over Tennessee: That defeat by LSU taught the Rebels you must play football to win in the SEC. Pittsburgh over Southern California: Jim Traficant's passing will startle the Trojans. Colorado over Nebraska: The Buffaloes, with their eyes on the Orange Bowl, will make amends for their startling loss to Utah. Michigan State over Northwestern: The Spartan offense, held to six points in the last two outings, gets back into high gear with George Saimes. Syracuse over Notre Dame; The Orangemen have made this game a crusade. Ernie Davis breaks loose with a bang. Missouri over Kansas State: With the Orange Bowl designation still open, the Missourians will turn loose all their power. UCLA over Washington: Washington has been the Coast Conference champion for two years. This year it will be UCLA. Maryland over Wake Forest: Norman Snead will be missed by the Deacons while Gary Collins will star for Maryland. Arkansas over Southern Methodist: The Porkers have skidded but still are strong enough to handle the Mustangs.
