Touchdowns came in clusters in the pro league in the years after World War II, but some of the scores this season look almost like soccer results. Of the 36 games played so far, seven have been decided by tour points or less and one ended in a tie. The league still boasts plenty of good passers — throwers like Otto Graham of the Cleveland Browns, Bobby Layne of the Detroit Lions, Norm Van Brocklin of the Los Angeles Rams and Jim Finks of the Pittsburgh Steelers. But touchdowns aren 't coming easy against the current defensive tactics, and the field goal and point after touchdown have increased in importance. As an example of the importance of the defense this year, the Redskins and Baltimore Colls made a success out of the first quarter of the campaign although neither has shown much offensive power. The Redskins, with two victories and a tie, are one of the league's, three unbeaten teams going into weight title contender Gil Turner, Sunday's game with Cleveland, fighting his second bout in nine Washington's defensive backfield, days, meets Johnny Bernardo in with Don Doll and Dick Alban an all-Philadelphia 10-rounder at picking off four apiece, has inter- the Arena tonight, cepted 11 passes to choke off rival Each fighter has won five in offensive efforts, a row, Turner's latest being a Baltimore has a 2-1 record be- unanimous decision over Italo cause of a rugged defensive lino Scorticchini of Italy.

The champion Detroit Lions and Cleveland Browns, the only un beaten-untied teams, are rolling behind a combination of scoring power and defensive strength. The Browns, whose pass defense patterns are set up by Backficld Coach Blanton Collier, have intercepted 10 passes while holding three opponents to less than seven points per game. This week's selections: Saturday night: Eagles (0-2-1) over Steelers (2-1) at Philadelphia. Sunday: Lions (3-0) over Rams (2-1) at Detroit; Browns (3-0) over Redskins (2-0-1) at Washington; Forty-Niners (2-1) over Bears (1-2) at Chicago; Packers (0-3) over Colts (2-1) at Green Bay; and Cardinals (0-3) over Giants (0-3) at New York.

By JOE REICHLER BROOKLYN (yR-Charlie Dressen still insisting today he will not return as Brooklyn manager for anything less than a two-year term, may be succeeded by Dodger Captain Pee Wee Reese. Reese, a favorite of Brooklyn President Walter O'Malley and long regarded as a possible future successor to Dressen, indicated strongly he would be receptive if the job were offered him. T always said before that I wouldn't consider a manager's job while I still have some good playing years left," said the 34-year- old star shortstop. "But now this thing ... I don't know . . . Things look a little different now." Asked point bl?nk whether he was considering Reese, O'Malley said: That's something we'll discuss in a week or so. Right now we're going to give Dressen a week to think it over. That's the agreement we made yesterday. He might change his mind. At least I hope so." Meanwhile, Dressen seemed to be going around in circles, just about as much as the baseball public, which was startled by the announcement Wednesday that the two-time pennant-winning manager had split with the Dodgers because of a disagreement in the length of the contract. Dressen, flushed with two straight National League championships, had demanded a three- year contract for $50,000 per sea- O'Malley rejected it and coun- an offer of a one-year pact at an increase in salary from $36,000 to $42,500. Dressen refused it and attempted to compromise for a two-year contract at O'Mal- Baitimoreiiey's figure. He promised to give O'Malley Y. M. C. A.

(UP)—Representatives of 25 baseball clubs throughout the country will meet here this weekend to discuss what can be done toward curing the ills of the minor leagues. The meeting, called by Dallas owner Dick Burnett, has no official status, but George M. Trautman, president of the minor leagues, said it "should prove worthwhile if they (the minors) can unite in their thinking." Specifically, its purpose is to formulate a sound platform of proposals to be presented to the national convention in Atlanta, Ga., in December. Anti-Freeze QUART The Babe defeated Virginia Marriott, Dallas, 9 and 8 Wednesday while Miss Riley ousted Jon Snider, Wichta, Kan., 7 and 6. Bisons Tied for First in AHL By UNITED PRESS The Buffalo Bisons moved into a first-place tie in the American Hockey League today on the strength of a third-period goal by Jim Stewart. • Stewart's tally, at 18:04 of the final session, gave the Bisons a 3-2 victory oyer the Providence Reds—and created their tie with Providence at the top of the standings. Bronco Joe Horvath tallied one goal and assisted on the other as the Syracuse Mohawks beat the Cleveland Barons, 2-1, and the Pittsburgh yornets defeated the Hershey Bears, 4-3, in overtime in the other AHL games Wednesday night. Aleclo ALEDO -~ Mr. and Mrs. Eugene Miller of Maywood spent Sunday in the home of her parents, Mr. and Mrs. John Parkinson. Mr. and Mrs. C. D. Stead returned Sunday from, a two-week vacation in Colorado. Miss Carolyn Giffin, sophomore at the University of Illinois, returned to Urbana Sunday after spending the weekend here with her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Virgil Giffin. Mr. and Mrs. Charles Bentlen and Mr. and Mrs. Harry Haines were in Peoria Saturday attending the state Grotto convention. The Builders Class of the Meth odist Church will meet Friday eve ning in the church. It will be a Halloween party and all members are to attend dressed in costumes Prizes will be given to the win ners. The birthdays of Archie Peter son and Mrs. Caryle Olson of Pre emptlon and Dennis Carlson, son of Mr. and Mrs. Raymond Carlson of Sherrard were celebrated Sunday with a potluck dinner at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Archie Peterson on South Maple Street. Mrs. Luther Idstrom entertained the Locals Bridge Club at her borne Monday afternoon. Bridge was played at two tables. Invited guests were Mrs. Charles Ford and Mrs. Virgil Giffin. Canadieiis Face Rangers Tonight By UNITED PRESS The favored Montreal Canadiens seek to gain undisputed possession of first place in the National Hockey League tonight when they meet the crippled New York Rangers. New York, due to the injuries of wings Dean Prentice and Nick Mickowski, are under-strength, while the fully-manned Canadiens will be on the friendly confines of their home rink. A Canadien win would break an existing tie with the idle Detroit Red Wings. The best New York, now on the last leg of its road trip, could gain is a three-way tie with Detroit and Montreal. The Toronto Maple Leafs, who were eliminated from last year's Stanley Cup playoffs, will test unbeaten Boston tonight in a scrap that may further tighten the league standings. A Boston victory, coupled with a Ranger win, would result in a four-way tie for first place. his NO HARD FEELINGS—Despite their contract different, .Manager Charlie Dressen (left) of the Brooklyn Dodgers and club president, Walter O'Malley, meet on friendly terms in the club's office in Brooklyn (Oct. 14). Meeting took place prior to conference at which O'Malley and the peppery pilot split over terms of a new contract and Dressen announced: "I won't manage the team next year." (AP Wircphoto.) Baseball Surprised at Dressen By UNITED PRESS (this could happen," said Dodger Charley Dressen's failure. to;c a P tain . and shortstop Peewee agree to terms with the Brooklyn! final answer before he left for his California home next Monday. Asked to pose for a picture depicting him waving farewell to Ebbets Field, Dressen declined, saying: "I might be back next year. 1 might change my mind." Later when the same photographer bade him goodby and expressed the hope that he might see him again, Charlicsmiled and said: "You might see me in Baltimore , . if you ever ge t down there." In Baltimore, Clyde Y. Morris, secretary-treasurer of the Orioles, said his club would be "very interested" in talking with Dressen But he added: "The position we are trying to fill is that of general manager of the club. If Mr. Dressen is talking about a field manager that is a subject we will discuss only after we have a general manager." Marty Marion, who managed the club when it was in St Louis last season, still has another year to go on his three-year contract. The Orioles already have taken over the obligation to pay the final third of Rogers Hornsby 'g three- year contract. Hornsby managed Dodgers ranked today as baseball's biggest surprise since the Yankees lost a pennant. Rival managers and Brooklyn players all expressed "astonishment amazement -- surprise 7 Reese. "It comes as a heck of a surprise." Dodger Coach Billy Herman said "It happened, so fast I hardly know what to think.

I always had a one- year contract when I managed the Dodgers except when I had a two- year pact with Larry MacPhail." Steve O'Neill, manager of the Phillies: "Dressen did a wonderful job with the Dodgers this year but ought to back down in his demands for a long-term contract. I don't know what more they want out of a manager, but that's baseball— you don't ask questions." Phil Cavarretta, manager of the Cubs: "It's sort of a shock to For a man to win the pennant consensus baseball." "I can't comment until I've heard more about it," said Manager Casey Stengel of the five- time world champion Yankees. "I know he was very successful. He's won two pennants. I'm sorta surprised it happened." "I never imagined anything like ager, they would have to pay three pilots, two for not managing. "I realize other clubs are signing their managers to two and three-year contracts," said O'Malley. "I am a firm disbeliever of long-term contracts. The Brooklyn club has paid more managers more money for not managing than any team in major league history." One factor that prompted Dressen to hold oat for a longer contract is his wife, now hospitalized with an abdominal disorder. She insisted he sign for two years or the Browns prior to Marion. Should!more, the Browns bring in a new man-letter on me. —but then that's their own business. You can't tell them how to run their business."
