Linesman, Shields, GW Defeats William-Mary In Loop Game By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS George Washington university took over the Southern Conference football lead Friday night by nipping wlnless William & Mary, 1614, In a mud-spattered battle in Washington's Griffith Stadium, In other games, Kansas, paced by Bob Marshall's 90-yard touchdown run, defeated Oklahoma A & M, 21-13, and Denver toppled New Mexico, 20-14. George Washington, unbeaten In six games and ranked No. 17 in the AP poll, had all sorts of series. The Giants are a two touchdown favorite. This is the second meeting be iween Cleveland and Pittsburgh, who share the eastern conference basement along with Washington. Each has won one while losing three. In their first engagement, the Browns scored a fourth period touchdown to defeat the Steelers 14-10. The Browns are a touchdown favorite. Green Bay is only a slim favorite over the Colts. The Packers, with a 2-2 record, outlasted Baltimore (1-3) game at Green Bay two weeks ago 38-33. Washington, which dropped its first game to the Cardinals several weeks ago, may prove tougher this time. The return of several players who previously had been on the injured list has strengthened the Redskins, who came through with a surprising 20 - 9 triumph over the Browns last week. In Los Angeles, the Lions will bo facing a team that won five of its six games in'the Coliseum last year, including one over Detroit.

Behind 30-7, the Explorers lost no time between plays in the third period, and moved 94 yards before being stopped. Sophomore Bob Van Buren, a scanty 125 pounds, moved in at halfback for the Explorers and led the way us the team pounded out six consecutive first downs. But with first and three to go for a touchdown, the Explorers failed to hit pay dirt in four plays, and gave up the ball, early in the fourth period.

East St. Louis' Flyers maintained their 20-year practice of beating Collinsville Kahoks. The Flyers' 26-2 victory Friday snapped the Kahoks' string of five consecutive wins. Chillicothe's Gray Ghosts saw their 27-game win streak go glimmering in the wake of a visit by Washington's strong Panthers. The Ghosts started their loss-free record back in 1953. It was the state's longest since East St. Louis was tied early last year.

Elgin is pointed toward a meeting next week with East Aurora, another Big Eight foe and a 25-6 winner over Aurora West. Galesburg's Silver Streaks scored easily in a 47-0 rout of Monmouth and appeared likely to go unchecked through their reaming two games with Canton and Limestone of Peoria. Effingham's Flaming Hearts counted an 18-14 .win, a seventh straight victory, over the Newton Eagles, stopped only once before. The Hearts are Eastern Illinois League leaders. Another'seventh straight winner is Jacksonville, 33-12 conqueror of Lanphier of Springfield. In the same class in Tuscola, 40-0 victor over Monticello. 4 EDWARDSVILLE — A 43-yard dash by Flem Bradshaw and an Edwardsville defense that gave no quarter tumbled Roxana from a six-game winning streak by a score of 7-0 here^ Friday night. Not only was it the first loss in seven games this season and nine games over two seasons for the Coach Earl McLane's Shells, but it was the first time this y°ar in which Roxana was held scoreless. It was the fifth win in seven outings for Coach Bennie Isselhardt's Tigers, who have also lost one and tied one. The winning tally came in the second period, after Edwardsville took a Roxana punt on the Shell 44. Quarterback Jimmy Chandler's pass was incomplete on the first play, and the Tigers picked up a scant yard on second down. Then Bradshaw took a handoff, and the 140-pound speedster scooted the rest of the way into pay dirt. Rich Pulliam converted from end to fullback for the first time in his career, scored the extra point. Pulliam exchanged positions with Buzz Shaw, one of the better fullbacks in the area who worked out of the right end spot against the Shells. A fumble stalled a clicking Roxana drive in the first period, after the Shells had taken tb.e opening kickoff on their own 30- yard line. H. A. Walmsley and Bob Parsons led the way as the Shells marched unstopped all the way to the Edwardsville 12-yard marker. But a Parsons fumble on the 12 was recovered by the Tigers, and Roxana never got that close again. Roxana made its bid to knot the count in the final quarter, after halting an Edwardsville drive on the Shell seven. Roxana pounded out continued small gains and reached the Edwardsville 30-yard line, where they lost the ball with inches to go for a first down, Most of the third period was played in Shell territory. The Shells made eight first downs to five for the Tigers, but were outgained on the ground and in total yardage. Roxana will play its final Midwestern Conference game of the season against Civic Memorial at home Friday night, while the Tigers travel to Alton. LINEUPS PLAYER POS.

On the eve of tonight's opening games in New York, St. Louis and Rochester, the Knicks sent the 7- foot Dukes to the Minneapolis Lakes for veteran Salter Martin. The 5-10 Martin, smallest man in the loop, floor generaled the Lakers to four division titles and four league championships in his seven seasons with the club. The 31-year-old speedster has not miss ed a game in the last two years but his streak may be broken tonight unless he reports in time for the nightcap of the league- opening doubleheader at Madison Square Garden. The Knicks take on the Boston Celtics, who will be operating minus Easy Ed Macauley for the first time since 1950. Bob Cousy and Bill Sharman are still on hand to lead the Celtic attack, along with Tom Heinsohn, the Holy Cross All America who will try to fill the gap left when Macauley was traded to the St. Louis Hawks. In the Garden first game, the champion Philadelphia Warriors meet the rookie-laden Syracuse Nationals. Syracuse has veterans Paul Seymour and Dolph Schayes to go with newcomer Joe Holup, while the powerful Warriors will try to repeat with a hard core of loldovers, using Ernie Beck and Larry Costello to fill in for drafted Tom Gola. Dukes' new teammates, the Lakers, are in St. Louis to face he Hawks and their league .scoring champ, Bob Pettit. Fort ,Vayne begins defense of its Western Division title at Rochester against the Royals, who finished last, but have added All America Silnigo Green to their young team built around Maurice Stokes and Jack Twyman. Along with Dukes, the Lakers obtained the rights to Burdie Halderson, currently with the United States Olympic squad. Jerry Bird, now in the army, went to the Knicks to complete the trade. Vince Boryla, Knick coach, upbraided Dukes on several occasions for his indifferent attitude and two weeks ago suspended him 'or failure to report for training on time.

Olive here Friday night, bringing their season record to five wins and two defeats. Coach Joe Jurkanin's Panthers tallied seven points each in the first, second and third quarters, and allowed to Mt. Olive touchdowns in the final stanza. Carl Crawford, an outstanding sophomore all season, scored all three touchdowns for Jerseyville, and added one extra point. Crawford scored in the first period on a 10-yard dash around right end. In the second quarter, he went the same way for 32 yards. The last TD came in the third period, when Crawford took a pitchout and went around right end again for 42 yards. Bill Watts ran for two of the extra points.

The Panthers remain home next Friday night for a game with Wood River, and close the campaign the following week at Roxana. LINEUPS PLAYER POS. PLAYER Mt. Olive (13) Jerseyville <3i) B. Lurton Geil Yocom East GRANITE CITY. — Alton, after falling behind 6-0, came back with touchdowns in the second, third and 1 fourth periods to take a 20-6 Southwestern Conference victory over Granite City here Friday night. It was the fourth win in six starts for Coach Elgie Posey's Redbirds. who are now 1-1 in the conference. It was the first defeat for Granite City in the last three games, and brought thnir season record to 2-4-1. The Warriors have lost two conference games and won one. The Birds take on Edwardsville in a non-conference game at home next week, while the Warriors journey to East St. Louis. An oddity saw Grady Robinson, a sophomore tackie, put the Redbirds back in the game in the second period by making like a backfield sprinter. The 190-pound lineman picked off m Warrior pitchout on the Redbird 21 and, behind some good blocking by his teammates, dashed 79 yards into the end zone. Halfback Danny Weeks passed to end Andy Miller for th« extra point to give Alton a 7-6 lead. Granite City had scored earlier in the period on a 42-yard drive, with halfback Harry Basan carrying over from the four. Basan's attempt for the extra point from the seven after a five-* yard Warrior penalty was stopped short of the goal line, Alton's third period tally cam« as the payoff on a 52-yard i march, after Bob Richardson recovered a Warrior fumble on the AJton 48-yard line. Weeks picked up the six points with a four-yard plunge, but the extra point attempt failed, and the Redbirds had a 13-6 lead going into the final quarter. Granite City got as far as the AJton 29 early in the period, but the Redbird defense held. Alton's final touchdown drive started on the Redbird 39 midway through the final stanza. After crossing over into Warrior territory, a 15-yard penalty pushed the Birds back from where Ihey had started.
