"Some day you'll regret it because the visiting teams' share of the gate will be mighty small when we have nothing but empty seats in our big stadium in Cleveland." Before anyone had a chance to leel sorry for Paul, however, he switched directions and selected a fullback Irom Syracuse I'niversity. a muscular powerhouse named Jimmy Brown For the next nine years the bulldozing Brown was to keep those seats from ever being empty by setting ball-carrying records that may never be matched. WHOA: There's a flag on the play. It has just been ruled that never' may be too presumptive a word. Standing in the wings and ready to spring to center stage is O. J. Simpson ot Southern Cal. He will be the No. 1 choice in the next dratt and seems destined for instant stardom.

NEW YORK-When the top brass of the National Football League assembled at the end ol the 1956 season for the an-: nual draft of college players.! everyone knew what was up-1 permost in the mind of Paul Brown. Because 01 to Graham had retired the year before, the Cleveland Browns had lost more games than they had won lor the lirst time in their history. So Paul desperately needed a talented quarterback to return his Brownies to their position ol eminence. As I he draft proceeded, however, lesser-ranked teams urabhcd tor the more inviting quarterback prospects and Paul did u slow burn. He knew in Ins heart that there was no collusive attempt to balk him but such is his intensity that he could not resist delivering a tart remark when his turn came to pick.

As the season progressed, the Simpson Sweepstakes saw four slow-motion teams dragging the heaviest anchors the Pittsburgh Steelers. the Atlanta Falcons, the Buffalo Bills and the Philadelphia Eagles. The Steelers made a mistaken spurt and won two games to drop from contention. Then the Falcons foolishly upset the Chicago Bears last Sunday tor thier second victory to fade from the picture. That left the injury-riddled Bills with only a zaney 37-35 upset of the Jets and the ridiculous tie to mar an otherwise spotless record. The lone in the clear was the Eagles. They have lost 10 in a row. If they can stay in the groove and not begin getting delusions of grandeur at this late stage, they can continue their stumbling passage to the end. winning nothing but 0. J. Simpson But before they reach out for their prize they had better be wary of the New-Orleans Saints a fortnight hence. It is unlikely that they can vanquish the three remaining foes, the Browns, the Lions or the Vikings. But the Saints might be beaten although those who hate Joe Kuharich. the Eagle coach, feel that he will remain true to his trust and fritter that away. too. II the Eagles ever win. it would be the most costly victory since Pyrrhus defeated the Romans at Apu-lum in 279 B.C. Say it ain't so. Joe. Stay in your rut. ALLIE Sherman, the Giant coach, and Wellington Mara, the club president, were talking about 0. J. the other day. "How good is Simpson?" repeated Mara. "He has been a more spectacular and productive college player than Jimmy Brown was. He's just as tireless and indestructable. He has to become one of the great ones." "I don't believe the rumors," said Sherman, "That George Allen of the Rams wants to trade three first place draft choices for 0. J. that doesn't sound like the George Allen I know." "1 understand." said mara. "That O.J. expressed a preference for a coast team, preferably one in the NFL. From the looks of things it would take a multiple deal to get him there. Deals ol that type are hard to figure out anyway. Remember when Paul Richards of the Orioles traded Bob Turley to the Yankees in one of those big turnovers? Everyone screamed that he'd just given the Yankees another pennant. 'So what?' He said, i don't care what the deal does lor them, only what it does lor us. It gave us six regulars.-" Kuharich sure could make good use of a superstar like O.J. but has so many other needs that a Richards-type deal might be much more to his advantage. First of all. though, he has to make certain he gets the Trojan wonder. This is no time lor him to get smart. This is a time for him to keep bumbling away and become a clearcut winner of the Simpson sweepstakes. 1 87 Implore. 94 Chinese.
