2 THE OTTAWA HERALD Saturday November 18, 1961 , C Of E Wins Offense Honors OU Defense Best In KCAC First place Ottawa University dominated the defensive department in the final Kansas Conference statistical report of the season, and runnerup College of Emporia hogged a major share of the offensive departments. Ottawa U. grabbed off all of Ihe team defensive honors as the Braves went through their second straight unbeaten, untied season, and they also led the conference in rushing and individual scoring. C. of E., up two places in the final standings over year with an 8-1 record, three individual last led in offensive categories as well as in two team divisions. The only titles not won by the two powerhouses were in individual punting, in which Jerry Smith, of Kansas Wesleyan, captured top honors with a 39.1 yard average per kick; and individual rushing, in which John Jacobs, of Baker, finished first with 792 yards in the eight games in which he participated. Ottawa's defensive marks included an average of 117.7 yards given up by rushing, 44.4 yards allowed by passing per game, and a total defensive average of 162.2 yards per game. In the closest race of all di- Ottawa's visions, Mike won the scoring title Brown by one joint over C. of E.'s Jim Switzer and Herman Rathman. Brown lad 73 points on four touchdowns, 34 extra points and five Field goals, while Switzer and Rathman each had 72 points on 12 touchdowns — the most scored by any player in the conference. Bruce Upstill, brilliant sophomore quarterback for C. of E., captured two individual titles as he passed for 1,747 yards and gained 1,804 yards on total offense to become the first player in modern history of the conference to exceed the 200-yard per game average with an output of 200.4 yards. His 194.1 yard passing average also is for the conference. a new high Rathman gave the Presbics their other individual title as he caught passes for 521 yards and an average of 57.9 yards per game. Richard Horn caught the most passes, 39, but the senior end for C. of E. finished third in total yards. Ottawa captured the rushing crown with an average of 250.5 yards per contest, and C. of E. was second in rushing while finishing far out in front in passing and total offense. The Presbies had 2,106 yards on the ground and 1,760 in the air for a total of 3, 866 yards and an average of 429.5 yards per game. Ottawa was second in total offense with an average of 334.6 yards per contest. Coach Says Players Tired' Him ST. LOUIS (AP) — Paul Seymour, out as coach of the staggering St. Louis Hawks, says he has no ill feeling toward owner Ben Kerner because "he didn't fire me — the players did." Seymour said Kerner "treated me fine, but what are you going to do? You can't fire all the players. They boycotted my choice of Cleo Hill as a starter because he is a rookie." Seymour, 33, a fiery competitor in his playing days at Syracuse, brought the much-discussed dissension in the Hawks ranks into the open Friday. Kerner said he had tried to live with a bad situation for two weeks, making peace between coach and team, but finaly had to act. Scoring star Bob Pettit Was named interim coach. Kerner, who has had an average of a coach a year in his 15 years in the NBA, wouldn't comment on who might get the job. Seymour said one member of the club's big three front line — Pettit, Cliff Hagan or Clyde Lovellette — went to him and said Hill was getting too much publicity and shouldn't be made a starter so quickly. Seymour wouldn't say which one. Pettit declared: "I don't care to get involved in any argument. There's nothing we want more than for Cleo Hill to be the greatest player in the world. We don't care who plays and whpj scoops as long as we win — and I know I speak for Cliff and Clyde." Wins Senior Golf Tourney PALM SPRINGS, Calif. (AP) Dutch Harrison of San Francisco led from start to Friday's finish in winning the National Senior Men's Open golf championship. Harrison posted a 4-under-par at La Quinta Country Club Friday for a 72-hole total of 273. In second place was Ralph Hutchinson of Bethlehem, Pa., who had 284, and Al Feldman of Tacoma, Wash., was third with 287. You Think Race Is Tight Now ^ By ROBERT MOORE The National Football League's tight Eastern Conference title race could get even tighter Sunday. It all depends on the Cleveland Browns and the Pittsburgh Steel- ers. If both the Browns and the Steelers win, three clubs will be deadlocked for the lead. The Philadelphia Eagles and the New York Giants are now tied for the No. 1 spot. The Browns run headlong into the smarting Eagles in Cleveland. Pittsburgh tangles with the Giants in New York. The Giants and the Eagles have 7-2 records, the Browns 6-3. A victory for the Steelers would square their record at 5-5 and give them the satisfaction of knowing they'd solved the NFL's best defense. Other activity in the Eastern Conference sends the St. Louis Cardinals (4-5) to Baltimore for an interconference struggle with the up-and-down Colts (4-5) of the Western Division, and the Washington Redskins against the Cowboys in the Cotton Bowl at Dallas (4-5). The Redskins will try to snap a 17-game losing streak, nine of them this year. The Green Bay Packers, perched all alone atop the Western Conference, throw their 7-2 record on the line against the Los Angeles Rams (3-6) in Green Bay. Regardless of the outcome, nobody can as much as tie the Packers. A Green Bay loss, however, coupled with a victory by second- place Detroit (5-3-1) at Minnesota (2-7) would leave the Lions only a half game off the Packer pace. Detroit and Green Bay play each other Thanksgiving Day. The Chicago Bears (5-4), anxious to get back in the thick of the Western race after losing 31-28 to the Packers, visit the San Francisco 49ers (4-4-1). The 49ers have only a tie and three losses to show for their last four tests. Sanders "Cajun r Leader Three-Point Field Goal •i* ' '•' Is A Devastating Weapon By BEN THOMAS LAFAYETTE, La. (AP) - "If he can play like that, I don't see much wrong with that fellow's swing." The speaker pointed to short- swinging Doug Sanders, 27, Cedartown, Ga., native who held the midway lead in the 72-hole Cajun Classic tourney today with an eight-under-par 134. Sanders withstood the pressure from a rash of early finishing par busters — including a new course record of 63 by Bob Rosburg — and fired a 67 Friday. It duplicated his opening round score. The cool-nerved swinger, who plays out of Ojai, Calif., consistently sank long and tricky putts as he sought his fifth tournament victory of the year. Sanders, the PGA tour's third leading money winner, needs only $4,000 to overtake idle Arnold Palmer in earnings for the year. Rosburg, a former PGA titlist,' was one stroke back with a 72-63 —135 while Ken Still, the little- known Tacoma, Wash., pro, was third with 136. Rosburg, of Portland, Ore., shaved a stroke off the record set by Billy Casper on the 6,534-yard Oakbourne Country Club course in 1959 as the chunky Californian was en route to that year's Cajun Classic title. The Hebert brothers — Lionel and Jay — who each owns a victory in the Cajun Classic, fared badly before a hometown gallery Friday. Lionel, defending champion, ballooned to a 74 after an opening 68, while Jay shot a 73 for a 36-hole total of 143. Dave Marr of Sun City, Ariz., soared to a 75 after being tied with Sanders and Still for the first-day lead. Celts Whip New York By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Coach Red Auerbach of the Boston Celtics in the National Basketball Association returns from a three-game suspension tonight, but he must be wondering if he's really needed. The Celts, with Bob Cousy acting as player-coach, whipped the New York Knickerbockers Friday night, 104-100, for their fifth straight victory and fourth in a row on a road trip. They return home tonight against Los Angeles and Auerbach, who sat out three games as a result of a hassle with a referee last week, will be at the helm again. In the only other league game Friday, the Lakers ran their winning streak to six with a 125-121 triumph over the Philadelphia Warriors. The Lakers now have won 11 of their last 12 games. The Celtics didn't manage to shake the Knicks until the fourth quarter when they strung together 11 straight points. Bill Russell was high man for Boston with 25 points and 21 rebounds. Elgin Baylor played 44 minutes for the Lakers despite a groin injury and tallied 37 points. He also grabbed 28 rebounds and handed off 8 assists. Wilt Chamberlain had 56 points for the losers despite the fact that e missed 11 of 19 free throws. Ball Was Free And He Took It By BOB HOOBING Associated Press Sports Writer BOSTON (AP)-A rookie end who hitchhiked for a ( tryout and an "impartial" goal post have kept Boston in the thick of the American Football League's Eastern Division championship fight. Leroy Moore, 335-pound defensive wingman, captured a free ball for a touchdown in the final period Friday night, rallying the favored Patriots to a 20-17 victory over Oakland. The zany play started when a punt from the end zone by the Raiders' Wayne Crow caromed off the left upright and bounded lose behind the goal. Moore outraced a defender and TOPS IN RUSHING — Bobby Lisa, backfield star of St. Mary's of the Plains aat Dodge City, leads nation's small college teams in rushing. The 170-pound junior has average 120 yards a game in nine games this season for total of 1,082 yards. His team has won only four of nine games and he's earned his rushing record despite a weak line and mediocre blocking. Indians Lose Court Battle KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) — A legal skirmish has been lost by the Prairie band of the Pottawatomie Indian nation in a fight over $1,176,788. The money has been awarded to the nation for land ceded to the United States by the Pottawat- omies in Iowa and Kansas in 1846. Two groups of Indians are quarreling over how to divide the money. One group, contending that all direct descendants of the 1846 tribal members should share, has placed 2,000 names on the tribal roll. The Prairie band, numbering 120 to 150 and living on the reservation 20 miles north of Topeka, says there are many outsiders among the 2,000. U. S. District Judge Arthur J. Stanley Jr. denied a temporary restraining order that was sought Friday by the Prairie band to delay certification of the tribal roll. The judge tok under advisement the question of whether he has jurisdiction in the case. Lightweight Fight On TV NEW YORK (AP) — Clever Carlos Ortiz is an 11-5 favorite to defeat slugger Paolo Rosi in their important 10-round light weight bout tonight in Madison Square Garden. A crack at Joe Brown's lightweight championship is the prize for the winner. The fight will be nationally televised 9 p.m. Channel 9. Rosi, 33-year-old Italian-born slugger, already has had one shot at the 135-pound title. He was stopped in the ninth round by Brown June 3, 1959 Because of cuts after piling up an early lead. Rosi has won three of four bouts this year. Rosi's over-all record is 36 victories, 8 defeats and 2 draws with 15 kayos. He is ranked 10th in the 135-pound division. Ortiz, the No. 2 contender, lost his junior welterweight title to Italy's Duilio Loi last May. In seven years as a pro, Ortiz has a record of 34 triumphs, 4 setbacks and 1 no contest. smothered the ball just before ft rolled out of the side of the end zone where it would have been only a safety and cost Boston the victory. The Patriots (6-4) now trail division leader Houston by .025 percentage points, New York (5-4), the other division contender, In at Houston Sunday on a program that also has Dallas at unbeaten San Diego and Buffalo at Denver. The much-battered vertical goal post bar that had a significant part in the game's outcome is the same one that wavered violently in the first period from the impact of a goalward smash by Boston's Jimmy Crawford. On that occasion the upright stopped the ball carrier on the fourth down play, spoiling an excellent scoring possibility set up by • fumble.

Main By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS The revolutionary three-point field goal, instituted by the new American Basketball League to reward outside shooters with a bonus for long-range accuracy, is becoming a devastating weapon in the fledgling professional circuit. The three-pointer, opening up numerous strategic possibilities in lose games, played an important role as the Kansas City Steers edged the Los Angeles Jets 115-109 Friday night and lengthened their first-place lead in the Western Division. It also had a major hand in the Chicago Majors' 94-91 overtime win against the San Francisco Saints and was used widely as the Cleveland Pipers beat the Pittsburgh Rens 111-94 and the Washington Tapers whipped the Hawaii Chiefs 100-89.
