He got along fine—a.suit here and there—until the weekend of October 30. On that day. form prevailed everywhere.. The' top 20 teams in the Associated Press Weekly poll al; won'their games. A total of 412 fans scored in Bitman's little contest. He had to give a suit to each: Although his is a modest little shop with .no assembly lines, Bitman said he would pay off every winner. The job was expected -to take months'. This, in -the opinion of the nation's sports writers participating in the Associated Press year-end poll, wns the football oddity of the 1 year.

It took days of close checking to pick the prise winner, a citizen who not only hit 15 squarely on the nail but line! the exact score in four. Other • outstanding oddities: In Leesburg, Pla., a high school game was called at the half with no score because a '. cold rain threatened to break the floodlights.
