S.F Victory Key; Stout Defense By Joe Watts Herald Journal Sport! Ed Her Russ Gumina, a 6-2, 210 pound guard, led a strong San Francisco Don defensive team to a 78-66 victory over the Utah State Aggies in Doc Nelson Feildhouse last night before 5,117 fans to give the Utah State team their first loss before the home fans. Gumina, a veteran returning from last year's San Francisco Don NCAA tournament Down Cold S 76-66 qualifying team, made some spectacular defensive plays as he continually forced the Aggies into made some mistakes and brilliant steals and saves. He held USU's top scorer, Dennis O'Brien, to only two points for the night, and they came from the charity line. It was the coldest shooting night of the year for the Ag- gies, as they converted only 36% of their shots. They were especially cold at the begin- ing of the second half when they went five minutes before scoring a field goal while the Dons were building up a big 13 point lead 49-36. Jump Shot At the ten minute mark in the second half Les Powell connected on a jump shot to give the Aggies 3 for 16 shots at that point. Powell continued his hot shooting night to finish with high point honors for Utah State with 16. He hit 6 of 11 shots and 4 for 4 from the f dull ine in playing the entire ball game, which was also his first starting assignment, a very fine performance. Gumina wasn't the only strong defensive player for the Dons. Erwin Mueller, highly rated last year as a defensive specialist, and Joe Ellis also were big men for the- Dons. Ellis and Mueller had the Aggies resitant on their shooting, as Ellis is a great jumper and blocked several Aggie attempts. This trio of Dons, along with substitute Dennis Black, all hit in the double figures for the Dons to give them a balanced scoring attack. Mueller was high point man with i9 counters, although he sat out about ten minutes after getting in foul trouble. Great First Half The first half was an entirely different contest. Thei cvtrvtr t\__. i.~j _ i f AI s 1 olEiVEi Elk Kill Is High The known illegal elk kills this year .are the highest since 1960, according to a report issued by the Utah Department of Fish and Game. ,. % Reports to date list a total ilegal km of 13 animals over the state, most of these securing during the deer hunt. The above figure is a minimum and may be revised upward as more reports are received and verified. As in the past, the illegal loss will amount to about 10% of the legal elk kill. Highest losses this year oc- cured on the Nebo, Ogden River, Manti and Cache areas. Department of Fish and Game personnel feel known and verified kill is only about 50% of the actual loss. During the past eight years the known illegal elk kill during der season amounts to 903 animals. Considering the number of potential breeding an imals lost each year, the po tential loss would be near 5,000 animals over the past eight year period. SVNDAY.

Halas won the honor for the second time in the 11-year history of the award by gathering together a squad that lost three of its first four games and producing a team that continued to challenge for the Western Division championship right down to the wire. The Bears slumped to a 5-9 record last season after annexing the league title in 1963 on a ball control-defense formula. This year, thanks to a sensational rookie, Gale Sayers, and a much-traveled quarterback, Rudy Bukich, Chicago is scoring more and providing fans with a wide- open winning brand of football. the two divisions, Halas decided to bench Billy Wade, who led the team over the last two years and use Bukich most of the season. The 33-year-old Bukich had een abtion at Los Angeles, iVashington, Pittsburgh after entering the NFL in 1953 and iven with the Bears for a brief tint in 1958. This year Halas urned over the reins to Rudy and the former Southern Call- ornia quarterback emerged as the league's top rated pas- er. . Saw Brilliance Halas' experienced eye saw he brilliance of Sayers as veil as any pro scout. Papa Bear made the former Kansas tar his No. 1 draft choice, as did the AFL Kansas City Chiefs, and then proceeded to tiake sure he got his man.

New York's ,Allie Sherman had four votes and Harry Gilmer of Detroit, Baltimore's Don Shula, Vince Lombard! of Green Bay and Washington's Bill McPeak received one vote each in the balloting conducted by sportwriters from each NFL city. A member of the football hall of fame, Halas rules over all aspects of the Bears. He is owner, chairman of the board and off-and-on has been head coach since 1920. The veteran mentor entered the 1965 campaign with an overall record as pilot of 300-12428. Chicago can double its victory total of last season with a win Sunday over the Minnesota Vikings. To accomplish this, in the more difficult of n 1922, renamed them the hicago Bears and they've >een there ever since. He has >een the head coach 37 of the 45 years the team has existed. At various times Halas has hreatened to quit and other imes he has said he was on he verge of firing himself. The most recent decision to eave the coaching ranks came in 1963 as the Bears prepared to meet the Giants for he championship. Halas said if Chicago won, he'd retire. The Bears defeated New York, 14-10, but the wily old man was the first one at training camp the following summer.
