Nov. 4 (AP Bill Bell's 33-yard field goal with six minutes left enabled Kansas to emerge with a 17-16 victory over Kansas State today. A blocked extra point by middle guard Emery Hicks of Kansas after the first K-Sttte touchdown proved to be decisive. The victory kept Kansas in first place in the Big Eight title race, while K-State is 0-4. Losing after the first half, 14-9, K-State dominated the third period, but the Wildcats twice were stopped on scoring threats. Then came a one-handed catch by tight end Art Strozier and run on a 67-yard pass play to give K-State a chance for its first victory over Kansas since 1955 and its first league triumph since 1964.

SUNDAY At Skins Secondary By Robert Morrison Of the Post-Dispatch Staff WASHINGTON, Nov. 4 - Jim Hart's area of concentration, as a student of the pass, is likely to be the Washington Redskin secondary Sunday. That's the part of Otto Graham's team that is supposed to be weakest and the statistics would tend to c o n f i r m that view. But as Hart and the football Cardinals take the field at 12:15 St Louis time before 50,000 in D. C. Stadium they have the sobering reminder that last week John Unitas and the Baltimore Colts beat the Redskins by only 17-13. In their National Football League ambitions, this is an important stop for the Cardinals. Their 4-3 record has them tied with Cleveland and New York for the Century Division lead, but the .Big Red need victory here. A defeat at this point could easily add stress to the trials to come later, including return matches with the Browns and Giants. The co-leaders have already beaten the Cards once each. Redskin quarterback Sonny Jurgensen, who has completed almost 60 per cent of his passes and thrown for 13 touchdowns, could have a little more going lor him than he had last week against the Colts. But the word today was that Jurgensen wont have ene of his mere talented receivers. Coach Graham said he is not counting en the return of Charley Taylor, whe missed the game with Baltimore because of a hamstring injury. Graham has i n d i c a t e d he would open with John Burrell at Taylor's usual split end position and that Bobby Mitchell will be at flanker instead of the Redskins' bright rookie, John Love. These assignments fall this way because Graham also is not counting much on Ray McDonald, the 240-pound freshman fullback from Idaho who was the nation's leading college ground gainer last year. McDonald had been sidelined with a groin injury. Graham said he would play but probably' would be used as a blocker on kickoff returns and not as a running back. The R e d s k i n s still have a dangerous receiver in tight end Jerry Smith, but their backfield runners are not a great threat. A. D. Whitfield and Gerry Allen are the starters. LINCOLN MERCURY, Inc. HA 3-5700 So perhaps the game, called even by the oddsmakers, gives the Big Red a reasonable chance to advance. A Wash log toe weapon the Big Red Bust control is ia the kick return department Love, the de-everything reekie frees North Texas State whea the Skins were lacking a fMd-goal kicker early, tops NFL kickoff re-tuners with a MJ-yard average.

Nov. 4-The late John Edward Wray. long-time sports editor of the Post-Dispatch and a columnist for 47 years, was named today to the Missouri Sports Hall of Fame. Wray, who died at the age of 88 in November 1961, will be honored at a dinner Nov. 18, along with Frank Ervin, veteran harness horse trainer and driver, and Ernest Mehl, retired Kansas City Star sports editor now serving as Kansas City sports consultant Known nationally for his integrity and high standard literacy in sn era when topflight writing and high ideals were not always found in his field, Wray wrote for the Post-Dispatch from September 1900 until August 1955 except for a four-year period (1904-08) as sports editor of the Globe-Democrat Although extremely versatile, he was especially devoted to horse racing, boxing and football. He devised the past-performance chart for horse racing. In 1914, the year the Yale Bowl was built he first pushed for a riverfront sta dium that became a reality in St. Louis is 1966. Wray was named to the Helms Foundation's Sports Journalists' Hall of Fame at a testimonial dinner on his eightieth birthday. He was born in Alton, 111., July 6, 1873. He enrolled at Massachusetts Institute of Technology but then decided that engineering was not his field. He was graduated in liberal arts and had an unsuccessful venture in the haberdashery business before going into the newspaper business. Tickets for the Missouri Sports Hall of Fame dinner are S5 each and can be obtained from Don Faurot, secretary-treasurer, 306 Jesse Hall, Columbia, Mo. A 5:30 reception at the Daniel Boone hotel will precede the 6: 30 dinner given by sports-writers and sportscasters who will attend the Missouri-Nebraska football game that day. ... MISS OUT Of!

Brig Owens is at strong safety, the usual watchdog on Jackie Smith. And Paul Krause, who starred at interceptions three years ago, is the free safety. . But this season, d e s p i t e a strong pass rush, Washington has totaled only four interceptions. Two were by Dick Smith, not even starting now; one by Sam Huff, who will not play because of injury and one by Krause. So Cardinal quarterback Hart, student of the pass, will have that secondary in mind even though, as usual, he keeps the attack in proper balance. John Edward Wray POIJTIAC OF ST. LOUIS XhJ i
