Timet News Service CAMBRIDGE, Mass. A public relations man. Charley Loftus, is credited with having cemented the phrase THE GAME to the annual Harvard-Yale football match. That and other good turns have enabled Loftus to plan to leave Yale this year after 26 seasons and open his own public relations company. Fittingly, this latest Harvard-Yale encounter, for one of the few times since 1875, was THE GAME, indeed. First of all. both teams came into THE GAME unbeaten and untied, a contender for the Ivy League championship. (The phrase Ivy League, it must be noted, was cemented onto eight Eastern schools by a famous newsman named Stanley Woodward. This joke of his. perpetrated in Latin, was institutionalized only 12 years ago. I Second, Yale's two stars, Brian Dowling and Calvin Hill, would be playing the final game of remarkable careers. Third, and most important for the 40,280 who would officially squeeze into the Harvard Stadium, it was cool and clear and heady as after-shave, the perfect day for any game. THE GAME is truly an upper middle class picnic. This becomes obvious in the parking lots which are transformed at noon into the suburban backyards everyone has recently abandoned. Why men pack their wives and children and shaggy-dogs into station wagons to eat potato salad and drink Fresca in a parking lot instead of at home is not to be questioned. Everyone seemed quite hearty as feet were stamped in a thicket of fiberglass lawn chairs, thermos bottles, apples in wicker baskets, fur-topped boots, cable-stitched cardigans, oversized sun glasses, tyrolean hats, plastic-covered teeth, plaid odd trousers. Cutty Sark. salad dressing. Budweiser beer, crewneck sweaters with ties underneath, red and white checked tablecloths, raccoon coats, smoky portable barbequ-es. and a crimson bookstore banner tacked to a wooden fence that read: "When better women are made. Harvard men will make them.'' THE TALK WAS LOUD and spirited: Carburetor trouble septic tank trouble, partner trouble, Nixon. Dowling, don't underestimate Vic Gatto. stomach trouble, sure, how could I forget him? Flushed, goodnatured. the crowd pushed into the stadium. P Vf . ft k u '2s K ' i 'i 5 fe kH;&lryiA"t!t an open-ended coliseum crawling with leafless ivy. at mite the last minute. There was plenty of time, however, b tore the teams would trade fumbles and interceptions and Dowling would run around his end for the first touchdown. Rolls of toilet paper, the ticker tape of the Ivies, unrolled from the Yale side. In some ways, college football is more fun to watch than professional football. There are more improvisations and more emotional reactions. Tacklers wrestle down the ball carrier like hounds on a stag, and when a Dowling gets creamed he limps back to the huddle. Pros don't rub. There are also many more fumbles and blocked punts, and this happened, too. in the first hall as Yale took a 22-6 lead. Calvin Hill scored a touchdown to become the highest scorer in Yale history, with 144 points, six more than Albie Booth, who last played in 1931 and was later appointed an immortal. Ultimately, the Yale-Harvard game is important only to gamblers and alumni. At New Haven last year, on a miserably chill and wet day. a lean blond couple in their mid-20's ate soggy hotdogs and crooned through halltime. "Barbaric ritual, isn't it? " "L'mmmm. yeh. barbaric." And atterward. on the train back to New York, a man who must have been 70 held his wife's hand and told her. once again, that the two vearshespent on the Yale bench were the happiest ol his life. FOR ALL THE REST OF the world. THK G MF. has come to signify Eastern snobbishness or poor lootball or the kind of unreachable "class" that the Jay Gatsbs and the James Marcuses crack up over. Stanley Woodward would have laughed at that, so might have Albie Booth, mavbe Charley Loftus. too. Ileattended Ohio. Incredibly, the taped replay of the Kansas-Missouri game was bumped oil television the next morning to make way lor the taped replay. Harvard scored IB points in the lasl 42 seconds to tie it up 29-29. and leave not one hard feeling Pete Compares Foes To Pros CASH AND CARRYi E 350 S.

Williams' counterpart at guard is Senior Guy Dennis, named to the I 'PI first team All American squad Tuesday. ' This is an honor that Guy deserves Coach Ray Graves said. "He has played consistently line football for us and he is deserving of this recognition." Graves said the Florida quarterback situation remains much as it was Monday and that the overall passing game, both throwing and receiving, is a disappointment. ' Tuesday's practice was so so hut it looks like the boss are starting to get up for Miami." he said. Tom Kennel is still our number one quarterback. Guy McThem is second and is looking prett good. He has been coming out early and getting in some extra work." (i raves said the Gators' two experienced quarterbacks. Jackie Kckdahl and Larry Rentz. have not made any progress in overcoming their injuries. Kckdahl is still sullering from possible calcium deposits on the bicep ol his throwing arm. but could see some action against Miami. Rentz remains "very doubtful with a cracked rib. In addition to stressing the passing game Tuesday, the Gator offense worked on its line blocking The defense looked at varied Miami running and passing offensive formations. G raves took time at the end of practice to comment on a widely circulated rumor that has his retiring as headcoach after Saturday's season finale. ' During recruiting time you can hear just about anything you want ." he said "I'm going to be coaching here at Florida for years to come. We ended one Graves year alter the Georgia game this year and now we're in the second " college football. The Chronicle observed that the t'niversih some day may have to field a young and inexperienced team. "It that comes, perish the thought, we can expect no mercy tomorrow from those whom we humiliate today. ' the editorial said. DISCOUNT IMCICKS IMUCES GOOD W KI). TIILKS. I HI. S i NEWMAN'S KICK PEPIN . . . Defensive Slar Linebacker Pepin's Play Bright Spot For Crusaders By DON BOYKIN Staff Writer Rich Pepin. Newman High linebacker, played his last game for the Crusaders last Thursday night against unbeaten Chaminade. And according to his coach. Sam Budnyk. it was his best game ever. Pepin, a 5-foot -7. !K5-pound senior, accounted for eight tackles and was in on four more as Chaminade a four-touchdown favorite - had to settle for a hard-earned 19-0 win. One tackle made by Pepin stood out above the rest. It came in the second quarter with Chaminade in control of the ball at the Newman 25 and leading, 6-0. Lion halfback Pete Russert, who was averaging 9.1 yards a carry going into the game, took a handoff and slammed into the right side of the line. But Pepin came up last to hit him lor only a yard gain, some eight yards below his per cany average. Russert. a lanky 6-foot -3. 185-pounder. was visibly upset by being stopped by Pepin and promptly popped the Newman linebacker over the head with Ins list. Just as promptly, one of the officials ejected Russert from the game. Budnyk said alter the game. I don't believe Chaminade has been hit like that all year and Pepin os course was at his best. He was really sticking them out there. Pepin's delensive performance was enough to earn him honors as the Post-Times Delensive Player ol the WeeK. Others with standout defensive nights: PAT VAN WAGNER, Leonard - Was awarded Lancers Blood Shirt Award, a weekly defensive award, for his play against Boca Raton. The 6-loot-7. 180-pound delensive halfback nocked down one critical pass and caused two fumbles with jarring tackles.

LAMAR POWELL and JERRY EOR1), Lake Shore Powell tackled the Dunbar quarterback lour times lor losses and both players combined to block a punt as well as making numerous tackles behind the line of scrimmage. BARRY HILL, Carver Was credited w ith eight tackles and two pass interceptions as the Eagles thumped John Carroll. 50-0. TERRY ALBl'RY anil DON CAYLOR.

LOWEST PRICES IN THE PALM BEACHES SHOP & COMPARE! The team's specialty is rugged option runs that vary little but are difficult to stop because of the superb personnel. Houston opened the season with a 54-7 stomping of Tulane. followed with a 20-20 tie against Texas, bounced Cincinnati 71-35. lost to Oklahoma State 21-17. bopped Ole Miss 29-7. tied Georgia, defeated Memphis State 27-7 then clobbered Idaho and Tulsa out of the stadium 77-3 and 100-6). Their fullback. Paul Gibson, is rated along side USC's O. J. Simpson, as one of the great college runners of all time and their pass receiver Elmo Wright is in a class w ith the Seminoles Ron Sellers. But toss the coin you have the 1968 Seminoles termed by Peterson, "the best team I have ever coached." Up again down again, they have been up since beating N.C. State and found themselves against Wake Forest last week. "If they make up their minds to do it. they can beat any team in the country.' Peterson said. And evidently he is believed, because Peach Bowl ollicials in Atlanta picked them as the host learn to mean LSU Dec. 30 in the first of that bowl's presentations. Tuesday the Seminoles were continuing to make those adjustments for the Houston offense. Quarterback Bill Cappleman and those offensive blockers have been drilling against the pass-rush, for that is how Houston is expected to stop the catching of All American Flanker Ron Sellers. They don't intend for Cappleman to get it in the air.
