Local Fans Face Quiet Grid Weefc; 3 Gomes Slated Away With La Crosse State College. Logan «nd Aquinas scheduled for •way games, the football front will be comparatively quiet in town this week. Central's Saturday night contest with Campion of Priarie du Chien is the only game on the local agenda. . La Crosse State journeys to Menomonie, Wis., for its important conference battle with Stout; Logan encounters Chippewa Falls Friday night; and Aquinas tangles with Eau Claire'Regis Sun- iay afternoon. Central hopes to better its 2-2-1 record against the tricky Red Knights of Campion. The game will be the highlight of Central's annual Fan Festival celebration this week. Campion lost three straight ball games before stopping Columbus of Marshtield Saturday afternoon, 27-0. When La Crosse and Stout play at Menomonie Saturday night the winner will probably win at least a share of the State Conference title. Stout, La Crosse and Whitewater are tied for first place in the conference with 3 wins and no losses. Right now Whitewater is in the best position because the Quakers do not play Stout or La Crosse. Coach Rod Martin's Logan squad may find Chippewa Falls a tough customer. Last week the Cardinals roared back from a 20-0 halftime deficit at Tomah to score 25 points. Tomah won, however, 32-25. Eau Claire Regis .is considered one of the best Catholic High School clubs in the state. Still undefeated, Regis has rolled over five foes this season. Aquinas takes a 3 wins, 2 loss record into the ball game. Green Bay Aerial Circus Upsets Eagles, 37-24 Packers Gain Tie For First Bob Mann Scores Three Touchdowns GREEN BAY, Wis. (#)— The Green Bay Packers bad an aerial circus Sunday as they upset Philadelp h i a's Eagles, 37-24, to move into the top spot in the National Division of the National Football league. But four other teams are sitting there with them. Quarterb a c k Bobby Thomason threw for 3 of Green Bay's scores, T o b i n Rote pitched the Bob Summerhays pounded 88 yards down the sidelines with a filched pass for the fifth. End Bob Mann took in 3 MANN fourth and Top Teams In College Circuit Score Victories Over Week End (Br Tb» Associated Prea») The three top football teams In the State College Conference remained just that over the week end as each posted a victory to hold-on to a piece of first place. Stout took its third league triumph against no losses Friday night by turning back Platteville, 25-6. And La Crosse and Whitewater, defending co-champions, matched that -record by coming through in contests Saturday. La Create buried Oshkosh, 33-6, while • Whitewater beat Milwaukee, 21-6. In Saturday afternoon games Stevens Point and River Falls fought to a 7-7 tie and Superior beat Eau Claire, 7-0, in the last minute.--" The La Crosse reserves played the entire second half after Art Richter's 43-yard and 10-yard runs, a 4-yard buck by Brian Taugher and a pass from Ken Hollub to Gene Wail produced a 4 touchdown lead in the first two periods. Oshkosh made its lone •core In the third quarter on a OotfJH V ' f!r«*font , JSf—vi* -•->•«»"• - ~ STORE pass from Cliff Schwebke to Orsen Willard. Whitewater racked up two tallies in the first period as Dick Bailey ripped over from the 2 and John Reisch flipped to Earl Bye. Milwaukee's Bob .Janas bulled over from the 5 in the second period but the Quakers came right back with a touchdown pass from Dick Kiyi to Dean Dexter and the remainder of the game was a scoreless battle. • Norbert Miller gave Stevens Point the lead in the second quarter when he sprinted 21 yards into the end zone. The River Falls' club scored in the same period on a pass play from Hardley Harkness to Bob Onstad, covering 85 yards. Vern Steinmetz converted to tie the count and that's the way the game ended. Superior pulled out a victory in the last minute of play. Harry Wilson intercepted an Eau Claire pass at midfield and Superior went into a drive which was climaxed when Byron Lundmark broke, loose on the 22. Chuck Ortmann Hurt PITTSBURGH C/P)— Halfback Chuck Ortmann of the Fitts- burth Steelers suffered a concussion when kicked in the head in Sunday's game with the San Francisco 49ers. He was removed to a hospital in an ambulance. Ortman, a rookie from the University of Michigan, was kicked following a 62-yard runback of an interecepted pass in the final quarter. A hospital physician said Ortman's condition "appears to be fair." He will be held overnight at the hospital for. X-rays. Battered Hilltoppers Prepare For Tulsa MILWAUKEE W— A spent and battered Marquette football team, which threw everything It had at Michigan State as it threatened a major upset Saturday, Monday was faced with the task of getting in trim for the Tulsa contest this weekend. Coach Lisle Blackbourn's Hilltoppers led Michigan State, first-ranked team in the nation, for three and a half quarters Saturday, but the Spartans pulled the game out of the fire in the final period and •won, 20-14. For a while it looked as though a surprised Michigan State team was in for a humil- itatinsj beating as Marquette took a 144 halftime lead. Then speedy young sophomores and freshmen took over the Spartan scoring roles and saved the day. Quarterback Jim Leahy made -both tbe Hilltop touchdowns with passes to End Jim Tobias in the end zone.

The triumph set the Packers in the 2-1 class and put the previously unbeaten Eagles in the same category, which Is only good for second place in the American Division of the league. The other clubs on top of the National Division with 12-records are Detroit, Los Angeles, San Francisco and the Chicago Bears. The first half of the Eagle- Packer tilt was a relatively dull affair for the 18,489 fans. Green Bay scored early on Thomason's toss to Mann and Philadelphia came in with a second half tally on Bill MacKrides' 24-yard pitch to Pete Pihos. Fred Cone booted a 20-yard field goal for the pack in the third period but the Eagles came right back with a 3-pointer of their own—a 27-yard kick by Bob Walston. Then the circus started. Rote connected with Mann on a 46- yard pass play as the third quarter drew to a close. Thomason hit Carleton (Stretch) Elliot with a short one as the fourth period opened. Then when the Eagles started back after the kickoff Summerhays speared one of Adrian Burk's passes on the packer 12 and went all the way. With four minutes left, the Tomason- Mann combination completed the Green Bay scoring on a 28-yard toss. Cone converted four times, his fifth try was blocked. The Eagles scored twice in the closing minutes after the Packers had a 3-touchdown bulge. Dan Sandifer went over from the T and on a later drive Frank Ziegler plunged over from the 2. Richards Sets Pace, Canadiens Win, 4-3 (By th« Associated Prut) Maurice (The Rocket) Richard, 30-year-old right winger of the Montreal Canadiens, pumped home 2 goals in 50 seconds Sunday night and assisted in a third to lead the Canadiens to a 4-3 triumph over the Bruins in Boston. In another National Hockey League match the Toronto Maple Leafs, Stanley Cup champions, scored their first victory of the season, edging the Red Wings, 3-2, in Detroit. Tod Sloan, high scoring right winger, tallied twice within 56 seconds in the second period to win the game for Toronto. The Chicago Blackhawks came from behind and nipped the New York Rangers, 3-2, at Chicago to post their second straight victory. Veteran George Gee had a hand in all of Chicago's goals. Gee assisted in the first marker and •cored the next two. He tallied unassisted to clinch the game in the third. Reg Sinclair, sophomore Ranger right wing, scored both of New York's goals.

Mann caught three touchdown panes as the Packers upset the Eagles, 37-24. —Aesu Telavhet* Five Pro Football Teams Tie For First In National League By ED CORRIGAN NEW YORK (#>—Only the New York Yanks can look upon next Sunday's action in the National Conference of the National Football League with anything approaching disinterest. The Yanks are the only team in the division who do not own a share of first place, and further, —on what they've shown so far—do not figure to come even close the rest of the season. They've lost 3 games and won none, while Detroit, the Chicago Bears, Green Bay, Los Angeles, and San Francisco all sport identical 2-1 marks for a 5-way tie for the lead. The Lions are in the most advantageous spot to take over, for they face the Yanks Sunday. Los Angeles plays Green Bay and San Francisco visits Chicago for game with the Bears. The American Conference is concerned with no such trouble. All the other-5'teams must wor- ry about now is how to catch the first-place New York Giants. Steve Owen's league-leaders — and now the favorites to come out on top—play the second-place Philadelphia Eagles in the top game Sunday, while Pittsburgh goes against Cleveland and the Chicago Cards meet Washington. Detroit, which has had the tag of dark horse hung on it, lost a! good opportunity Sunday when it bowed to Los Angeles, 27-21. Up to Sunday, the Lions had been the only undefeated team in the division, but Bob Waterfield notched 20 points for the winners to crush the Lion hopes. In other games, the Giants whipped the Chicago Cards, 2817; the Chicago Bears triumphed over the Yanks, 24-21; San Francisco stopped Pittsburgh, 23-24; Cleveland ripped Washington, 450, and Green Bay thrashed Philadelphia 37-24. The Giants, behind 17-14 after three periods, had their troubles with the Cards. But after having their air attack bottled up, the New Yorkers resorted to the ground, and Eddie Price and Kyle Rote carried the mail over to wrap it up. The Bears were sailing along experiencing no trouble with the Yanks until the final minutes, when Jimmy Phelan's tailenders went on a binge and scored three times. Bob Celeri, substitute back, passed for one and set up another, but time ran out. San Francisco had to come from behind a 10-7 halftime deficit, but with Frankie Albert pitching from all angles, scored three times in the third period to crush the Steelers. The Defending Champion Browns, who have had . their troubles at times, slaughtered the Redskins, although Washington did not help its own cause. Four of the Redskin fumbles promptly were converted by the Browns, three into touchdowns, and one into a field goal. Badgers Knuckle Down To Find Scoring Punch For Purdue Tilt MADISON, Wis. (/P)—The University of Wisconsin football team, still without a Big Ten victory despite a definite advantage in the statistics columns of two games, knucked down Monday in an effort to find its scoring punch. The Badgers tied favored Ohio State, 6-6, before a capacity crowd of 51,000 at Camp Randall here Saturday after losing to Illinois a week earlier, 14-10. Purdue will be host to Wisconsin in a homecoming tilt at Lafayette, Ind., this Saturday. Coach Ivy Williamson announced Sunday the Badgers will take on the Boilermakers without the services of Bill Gable, outstanding offensive guard who suffered a knee injury in the Ohio State game. Halfbacks Harland Carl and Tom Canny and Tackle Charles Berndt, none of whom saw action against the Buckeyes because of injuries, still were on the doubtful list for the Purdue game. Wiconsin rolled up 19 first downs Saturday against 7 for the visitors and gained a total of 346 yards compared with 106 for Ohio State. "Our defense did a beautiful job," Williamson said, "It was just a shame that Skvarka made that long run. Look at the statistics and you'll see what a job our defense did." As for the Badger offense, it was the same story as a week ago'at Illinois, Williamson said. "We piled up a lot of yardage but couldn't sustain our attack. We just aren't getting anything cheaply this year, and you VAN CHICK SHIRTS By Van Heincn Not a stitch in sight. Plain and stripes. $3.95 J ENKS 535 Main ST. NEW PONTIACS FOR IMMEDIATE DELIVERY I STRIKE PONTIAC can't score much against good teams that way." Ivy praised the work of two freshmen, Alan Ameche of Kenosha and Bob Young of Green Bay, who accounted for a good portion of the yardage.

Pro Football Standings Big 10 Race Like A Dog Chasing Tail By CHARLES CHAMBERLAIN CHICAGO (ff)—The Big Ten football title rush is getting more like a dog chasing its tail. There is no clear-cut favorite thus far. Probably Illinois has a slight edge in the figuring on the basis of its 14-10 victory over Wisconsin a week ago and the Badgers 6-6 tie with Ohio State Saturday. The sgruggle could become so intense that the deadlock at Madison—which counts one half game won and one half gam* lost in the standings—may become the final factor in determining the champion when t h • season ends. Three conference games this Saturday should do little in clearing the muddle unless there are upsets. Wisconsin invades. Purdue and should win on tha form sheet. Ohio State should defeat Indiana at Columbus. Michigan at Iowa seems like a toss-up. The intersectional schedule sends Illinois to Washington, Nebraska to Minnesota and Navy to Northwestern. In other engagements for Midwest majors. Notre Dame will try to shake off its 27-20 loss to Southern Methodist with victory at Pittsburgh; undefeated Michigan State, pressed to beat Marqu«tte 20-14, is at Perm State; and Mar- quettehas a night game at Tut sa.
