GALESBURG, ILLINOIS, FRIDAY, OCTOBER 23, 1953 PAGE 17 Knox Tries Again for Second Win Against Omaha Saturday Omaha University's grldders, sporting a 3-2 record, will be here tomorrow to face the Knox football team In the only non-conference game of the season for the Slwash- ers. The sixth game of the season for Knox will start at 1:30 at Willard Field, with Coach Harold Turner's eleven aiming for their second win. Knox should be in fairly good shape for tomorrow's game, coming out of last week's loss to Mon mouth with no serious injuries Turner will probably stick with the same starting lineup he used a week ago. John Clark and Carl Big Ten's Three Unbeaten Teams Favored to Win CHICAGO (JPI— The Big Ten's three unbeaten teams—Michigan State, Michigan, and Illinois—arc all favored to extend their victory 6treaks Saturday. The toughest job appears to be Michigan's. The Wolverines invade Minneapolis for resumption of the Little Brown Jug rivalry with Minnesota, beaten three times. Michigan, with four straight triumphs, is a one touchdown favorite. Michigan State is a 14-point favorite at Purdue. The Spartans will be shooting for their 29th successive victory, their fifth of the season and fourth in Big Ten competition. Purdue, highly regarded before the season started, has failed to win against Missouri, Notre Dame, Duke and Wisconsin. Illinois' tremendous running attack, No. 1 in the nation, is ex pected to jolt Syracuse, winner of three of four starts. The Illini are rated a 20-point edge by the experts. Ohio State, riddled by injuries, faces a severe test at Wisconsin. The Buckeyes haven't been the same since Illinois blasted them 41-20 two weeks ago. Their fine quarterback, John Borton, may not play because of injury. The official "line" gives Ohio State a three point edge over the Badgers, who gained stature by whipping Purdue 28-19. In the only other conference game, Iowa invades Indiana. The Hoosiers have only one victory in four starts, beating Marquette 2120. Iowa has a 2-2 record and is a 13-point favorite. Pittsburgh, after giving Notre Dame a rough time before losing 23-14, is at Northwestern for a game rated as a toss-up. Hochn, junior halfbacks, have been carrying the brunt of the running attack with Ed Beaven doing a good job of passing, especially to end Paul Stalker. Last year Knox lost to Omaha, 200, on the Nebraska school's home field, .with all the scoring coming in the first half. Omaha has an enrollment of 1450, the majority from the city of Omaha. According to Knox Athletic Di rector Dean Trevor, who scouted Omaha's 32-7 win over Emporia last week, the visitors will bring plenty of scoring potential, but rale in a class with the Midwest Conference teams. Heading the Omaha attack is triple threat fullback Bill Englehardt, rated "tops" by Trevor, who is a pretty good judge of football talent. Operating with Englehardt are two good ends, Rotella and Mascman, prime targets for his passes. So far this year, in addition to their win from Emporia, the Omaha eleven has downed Ft. Hays State, 20-12, and Morningside, 2819. They 've lost to Washburn, 14-6, and Colorado College, 26-6. In spite of the better Omaha record, the Siwashers should have a good chance of pulling out their second win of the season. They've been showing improvement over the season, and with just three games left should be ripe to grab a victory. Knox's freshmen tangled with Monmouth's junior Scots this afternoon at. Monmouth In the first encounter of a two game series between the two teams. Kewanee Invades Galesburg Tonight Seeking To Avenge 1951 Defeat; Streaks Out to Win Kewanee invades Lombard Field this evening to battle the Galesburg Silver Streaks in what looms up as a hotly contested football game between two ancient sport rivals. The ball game counts in both the Illini and Northwest conferences. Kickoff time is set for 8 p.m. This is a very important contest for both elevens and they are both expected to go all out for victory. Galesburg will hold a weight advantage over the Boilermakers, but lhat may be off set by the speed of the Kewanee backs. In Mondo Lopez the Boilermakers have one of the finest fullbacks in this section of the state. He has been a regular for three years. The Streaks attack will no doubt be centered around the tricky running of Chuck Williams and the passing of Carroll Fay. SEASON RECORD K*want*— Galaiburg— 7 Canton 13 12 Peoria Cent. »33 13 E.

Jack, playing his first season of football, has done a good job for the Silver and Gold on both offense and defense. Clemson Bows to South Carolina; No Blood Spilled COLUMBIA, S.C. (UP)—Another meeting between arch-rivals South Carolina and Clcmson failed to produce anything even approaching a riot, but it still turned out to bo an interesting football game? This is the game, held annually during the South Carolina State Fair, which in past years has been noted for its blood-letting, both on and off the field. But not even one punch was thrown Thursday as South Carolina scored on passes of 45 and 24 yards to edge its state rivals, 14-7. A screaming but restrained crowd of 35,000 watched the 51st meeting of the teams. Most of the action took place in the first half, but the only drive that counted was an 86-yard move engineered by South Carolina's star quarterback, Johnny Gramling who throw 45 yards to end Clyde Bennett for the first touchdown. Jim Jarrett converted the first of his two extra points. Gramling left the game in the third period in favor of Harold Lewis, who quickly moved down- field to Clemson's 24-yard line. From there, Lewis tossed to end Joe Silas, standing alone in the end zone, to increase Carolina's margin to 14-0. Quarterback Tommy Williams found end Scott Jackson with a 13-yard toss in the final period for Clemson's only score,.

Clark St. Giles Favors Expansion of Major Leagues MILWAUKEE UPi— Warren Giles, president of the National League, believes major league baseball on a broader scale will come from expansion of the" National and American Leagues rather than creation of a third major league. Fans will not accept a third major league if it is "merely a group of eight new cities," Giles declared in a speech last night at the annual dinner of the Milwaukee Association of Commerce. He continued: "The answer to providing major league baseball on a broader scale does not at this time lie in the creation of a third major league, although some day there probably will be one. "The answer in my opinion is expansion of the two major leagues. Such a program would conveniently accommodate four cities and as I see it, it will be a long time before there are more than four cities with practicable geographic location, adequate facilities and a population with sufficient baseball enthusiasm to become major league cities." Maryland Choice Over Miami MIAMI, Fla. UPl— About 42,000 fans are expected to turn out tonight to see Miami's Hurricanes in action against Maryland—a team considered almost a sure choice to come back next New Year's Day and play in the Orange Bowl football game. Maryland is a 16-point favorite and Miami, no pushover in anybody's league, must be at its best to keep the score that close. The Hurricanes can't even hope that Maryland will coast through this game—not since the Atlantic Coast Conference voted to send its best team to the Orange Bowl game Jan. 1 to meet the Big Seven champion. Coach Jim Tatum's Terrapins have never been extended in knocking over Missouri, Washington and Lee, Clemson, Georgia and North Carolina. Miami defeated Clemson and Florida State and lost to Baylor and Nebraska.

Carroll Fay Is Voted Player of Week by Streaks Carroll Fay, receiving an overwhelming majority of his .teammates' votes, was voted Galesburg High School's player of the week. This honor is not necessarily given to the one playing the best game but to the man contributing most to the team during the week. The player's training, work in practice and general attitude during the week are considered along with his play in the game. His overall contribution for the entire week is more Important than his play in the single game. The player receiving this award each week will get his picture in a downtown store window. (Iowa) reigned today as the leading scorer and top ball carrier among the nation's small college football teams. The 21-year old native of Wauwatosa, Wis., held a three-point lead over Barry Frakes of Monmouth College (111.) in the scoring race, according to statistics released by National Collegiate Athletic Bureau. Both Finanger and Frakes have tallied 13 touchdowns. However, Finanger has added 13 conversions for a total of 91 points, while Frakes has 10 conversions to his credit for 88 points. fn the rushing department, Finanger has totaled 616 yards in 88 carries. That gave him a 71-yard advantage over Stan Huntsman of Wabash and Ad Rutschman of Linfield, each of whom have amassed 545 yards. Like Finanger, Pence Dacus of Southwest Texas State is leading the small colleges in two departments. Dacus is the leading passer with 911 yards in five games and has added 46 yards on the ground to hold down the total offense leadership with 957 yards. In the small college team statistics, Miami of Ohio is the offensive giant with an average of 434.5 yards gained in four games, while Southern University (La.) has yielded only 83.3 yards in four games to hold the defensive leadership.

Mickey Bates, Illini Scoring Ace, Gives His Version of His Eight Touchdowns in 4 Games CHAMPAIGN— "I guess it's just natural to turr on everything you 've got when you see that end zone in front of you." That's the way Illinois sophomore halfback "Mickey" Bates of Kewanee explains his phenomenal splurge of eight touchdowns in just four games of the 1953 football season. Bates has been more than slightly terrific in setting this scoring pace which puts him within five of- the Illinois season record. "Mickey" is scoring leader of the Big Ten, with four touchdowns against Ohio State and two against Minnesota. "You have to run different when you 're going for the short yardage near the goal line," Bales explains. "I try to start faster and take shorter steps, and you have to stop and cut quicker, too." "Mickey"—he's seldom called by his given name, Melvin—can be considered an authority on picking up short yardage, statistics for the first four games reveal. On his best day — against Ohio State- three of his touchdown runs were for two, four and five yards. He also scored on a five-yard plunge against Nebraska, and a bruising 16-yard drive against Minnesota. Bates also has speed necessary to get touchdowns on longer dashes. He did it against Ohio State, on a 41-yard quick opener over left tackle, and against Stanford, on a 27-yard sprint up the center. Showing his versatility, Bates Mickey Bates scored his eighth TD of the season on a 26-yard pass from quarterback Elry Falkenstein against Minnesota last Saturday. Illinois fans have been particularly impressed with Bates' ability to keep driving for the end zone after being hit ouce, twice, or even more times by opposing players. On his four-yard pluDge at Ohio State, he carried three would-be tacklers into the end zone with him. "Maybe it's those barbecued ribs," Mickey confides. He has a standing offer from a Champaign restaurant of a pound of barbecued ribs for every touchdown. There's more behind "Mickey's" success than barbecued ribs, however. He's been a standout on the football field-ror in any form of athletic endeavor, for that matter —ever since he first pulled on a uniform back at Kewanee Junior High School. Bates led Kewanee high to the Northwest Conference football title in 1951, and was a virtually unanimous all-state choice. At Illinois, he impressed freshman coaches with his combination of hard running and good speed. Bates appears to have physical qualities for a top-notch fullback. Actually, in many of Coach Ray Eliot's plays, that's exactly where "Mickey" winds up. lie's carried the ball 63 times this season, and he's picked up 315 yards net. That's an average of five yards per try—good in any league, and especially the Big Ten. Despite bis great success on the football field, "Mickey" feels he would rather go into professional baseball than professional football He'll have two more seasons in which to change-his mind, but if he sticks with his original decision, it won 't be too surprising. He was a four -sport star at Kewanee, and coaches there agree that he excelled in baseball. By BOB SERLING United Press Sports Writer WASHINGTON (UP)— A veteran football coach reminded football! fans today of something they probably never noticed — the original T-formation is dead. In its place, according to Curley Lambeau of the Washington Redskins, professional teams and many colleges are using what amounts to a hybrid T and single wing. "The defense caught up with the straight T a long time ago," Lambeau said. "I don't know of a single professional team that still uses the conventional T more than 10 percent of the time, if that often." By the straight or conventional T, Lambeau was referring to three backs lined up behind the quarterback in the shape of a "T", with the quarterback occasionally sending one of them in motion before the ball is snapped. "That formation, with or without a man in motion is seldom em ranking passer with 47 completions in 80 tries for 649 yards and ranks fifth in total offense. . . . Collier is the No. 5 pass receiver nationally with 14 catches for 259 yards and one TD. —S— JOHNNY LISTON, former Illinois state cage scoring ace from Knoxville, is listed as a bright basketball prospect at Iowa U. . . . John is just a freshman this year, but he has already drawn praise from the Hawkeyes cage boss . . . Bucky O'Connor. . . . John is regarded as one of the best natural basket shooters to be at Iowa in several years. —S— NORTHWEST LOOP ... It is now apparent that Canton intends to quit the NWC in football, but they would like to continue in such sports as baseball, track and basketball. . . . There is already one school in the league . . . Monmouth . . . that does not take part in football and yet plays league games in other sports. . . . This writer feels that if a school is going to belong to any athletic conference . . they should take part in all sports for the good and balance of the loop. . . . Personally this writer would like to see Monmouth and Canton remain in the conference ... football and all. . .. Other than Rock Island and Moline the grid setup is about even among' Galesburg, East Moline, Kewanee and Canton. . . . Here is our suggestion to Canton and Monmouth ... Do not play Rock Island and Moline every year in football ... in other words . . . play Moline one year and Rock Island the next. . . . Moline and Rock Island are always going to dominate the football championships anyway and so there should be little pressure on the other football coaches. ... As far as basketball, baseball and track goes the Northwest Conference is ideal. Canadiens Rally To Top Hapless BUickhaivks, 3-2 NATIONAL HOCKEY LEAGUE [ (By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS) W L T Pts.l Montreal 5 2 0 10 Detroit 4 1 2 10 Toronto 3 12 8 New York 2 3 15 Boston 2 3 0 4 Chicago 0 6 1 1 By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Chicago's hapless Blackhawks still are without a National Hockey FOOTBALL SCORESS By The Associated Press South Carolina 14, Clemson 7 Valparaiso 27, Ball State 7 Dana 38, Tarkio 0 Meeting of Local Bowlers Slated For Saturday which amounts to the same thing I as the Montreal Canadiens came as the wingback in the singlejf rom behind for a 3-2 decision. The wing — a back who lines up be hind the tackle or between the tackle and end or just outside the end. And some colleges actually use T quarterbacks for blocking on end sweeps." Asked if he thought the pre* eventually would return to the single wing, Lambeau replied: "Of course not. They'll use what they're using now — variations of both the T and the single wing, depending on what the defenses come up with. You can't predict what the offensive football formation of the future will be because it all depends on what the defense develops into. "Football is nothing but a never- ending war between offense and defense anyway, with first one and then the other predominant," Lambeau continued. "I think the defense has the edge right now, and the flanker formation is just one attempt to tip the scales again toward the offense, along with spreads and the split T." Lambeau is understandably prejudiced in his contention that the defense dominates pro football — provided players carry out defensive assignments perfectly. The canny Belgian has always been regarded, along with Steve Owen of the New York Giants, as the finest defensive strategist in football. Curley's defensive patterns last Sunday, against the Cleveland Browns, were almost as numerous as his offensive plays. They murdered Cleveland's famed trap play which starts out as a pass and winds up with the fullback plowing straight through the middle. And the Redskins, although they blew a 14-13 lead in the last 12 minutes, held the Browns' attack in check more successfully than any other team this season. Basketball at Stadium Tonight CHICAGO C« — A handpicked group of 14 college graduates, regarded as among the best basketball players ever assembled in the 14-year series, will meet the Minneapolis Lakers in the annual All-Star game at Chicago Stadium tonight. The Collegians, coached by John "Honey" Russell of Seton Hall, will try to square the rivalry! against the pros after losing seven and winning six of the previous All-Star contests. Russell has seven players standing 6-6 or better with his own Walter Dukes heading the list at 6-11. His "shorties" are the O'Brien twins, Johnny and Eddie, who are 5-9. The former Seattle University sharpshooters were given special Army leave to play. Despite the array of college talent, many experts predict a victory for the Lakers of the National Basketball Association. Featuring the professional champions are George Mikan and Clyde Lovellette, the former Kansas star. win put the Frenchmen in a tie for first place with the Detroit Red Wings. In the only other game, the revamped New York Rangers opened their home season with a 4-3 triumph over the Boston Bruins. Chicago drove to a 2-1 lead on goals by Bill Gadsby and Bill Mosienko. But Bernie (Boom Boom) Geoffrion deadlocked the score for Montreal and Ken Mos- dell added the winning tally with less than two minutes remaining. At New York, the Rangers jumped off to a three goal lead in the opening session, only to have the Bruins battle back for a pair in the second. They traded tallies in the third as the New Yorkers moved into fourth place ahead of the losers. Matt Bullock Passes Away CHAMPAIGN, 111.
