Aknn Beacon Th-.u-ia . A;.;: 31, :.' Jim Schlemmer Mant A F-l ii i fl la roe gin t D Mind e 4b a Bucks. Haulvs In Title Clash? W ail Til WV Look 'Km Over THERE A HE NO FEWER than a dozen "of-final" football periodicals annuals, yearbooks, do-books, forecasts, ratings, etc. already in the news stands. Perhaps as many more haven't come to our attention. Possibly another dozen are on the way. The easy way would be to buy 'em, dieest 'em, believe 'em then sit right down and write that the Ruckees of Ohio and Hawkeyes of Iowa will decide the Bis; Ten and national championships in their clash in Ohio Stadium, Nov. 1. The hitch however, is this: Much of the mail now reaching our desk doesn't jibe with much of the junk written last Spring for Fall consumption in the football magazines. The hard way of course, but most satisfying, is to pay personal visit to all of the Big Ten football camps for first-hand information, eye-opening observations, comparisons and conclusions. IT'S A LONG TRKK and time to get started. Equipment was being distributed today to players and prospects, and pictures taken. Practice starts in earnest Friday on a twice a day basis. For some schools, first games are just - three weeks away. All will be in action by Sept. 30. I3y the final Run that day or not later than the last tackle on the World Series Saturday that follows, they will have engaged in enough intersectional contests to reaffirm and refurbish the Big Ten's reputation as strongest in the nation: IF things go as well as they did a year ago. The l'JGO score for 23 games with non-conference opponents, in case you have forgotten, was 19 wins, two defeats and two ties. It would be hard to improve on that, although there are 26 such games scheduled this time. BOTH TIES WERE in season openers: Michigan State 7-7 at Pittsburgh and Purdue 27-27 with UCLA at Lafayette. But from Oct. 8, when outmanned and outlawed Indiana took a 20-fi whipping from Oregon State, not another Big Ten team bowed to an outsider until Washington defeated Minnesota, 14-7, in the Rose Bowl. Purdue gets first chance to avenge that one. The Boilermakers open with the Huskies at Seattle, Sept. 23; Illinois opens with the Huskies the next week at Champaign. Other action Sept. 23 will find Indiana at Kansas State and Wisconsin engaging Utah at Madison. . Through Oct. 7. Ohio State will have entertained Texas Christian and UCLA; Iowa will have been at home to California and Southern Cal.; Minnesota at home to Missouri and Oregon; Michigan to UCLA and Army, Michigan State tir'Stanford, Northwestern to Boston College and Purdue to Notre Dame. Ir! AS THE SEASON wears along Illinois will visit Southern Cal.; Iowa and Michigan State will both play host to Noire Dame; Indiana to Washington State and West Virginia; Michigan to Duke and Wisconsin to Oregon State. Northwestern travels to Miami, Fla., but Purdue is at home , to Miami of Ohio, and Ohio State at home to Oregon. These !games not only provide opportunities for Big Ten teams to ' ptove superiority over representative outfits from all sections, but also furnish additional basis for comparing teams within their own conference; for example, the Buckeyes and Gophers, who do not themselves meet but play six common ' opponents, including Oregon. It is unusual for the Buckeyes to play an outsider as late as Nov. 18 but that's when they take on the rugged Oregon Webfoots, who gave them such a go of it before bowing, 10-7, in the 1957 Rose Bowl game. . THERE ISN'T A PUSHOVER on the slate. Indiana's opener with Kansas State might be considered one except for the fact the Hoosiers were every bit as bad last season as the Wildcats and both could be equally improved or as bad again. College football has become such big business: tjie, high cost of fielding winning teams and the professed necessity of drawing big crowds to pay these costs and help finance other teams in intercollegiate and intramural sports "has ruled out the easy openers and the so-called mid-season '-breathers. Most Big Ten schools hiked ticket prices for 1961: a matter that will be treated in separate reports. Ohio .State prices went up 50 cents to $4.50 and $5 respectively ;ior grandstand and box, but demand as usual exceeded sup-pii despite again limiting season book sales to 65,000. Last year the Bucks averaged 82,716 for five home games, with peaks of 83,246 for Wisconsin and 83,107 for the Michigan game. This year's probable peak, for the prophecied "championship" game with Iowa, could surpass previous highs of 83,481 and 83,412 for 14-14 and 7-7 ties with Purdue and Wisconsin in 1938. THE BUCKEYES, nipped last year by Purdue and beat-" en by Iowa, and the Hawkeyes, who lost only to Minnesota, both figure to be improved. Yet many things can happen between the last day of August and first Saturday in November to prevent a championship meeting. Murray War-math, whose Gophers shared the conference crown with the Hawkeyes but were acclaimed national champions, in a nationally syndicated forecast picks Iowa to be best in the Midwest; with Ohio State, Michigan State and Michigan the top challengers. Warmath makes no mention of his Minnesota outfit. This could be due to extreme modesty or to something else. My mail includes a report from Warmath in which he lists 18 lettermen missing from last year's squad but also lists 20 lettermen returning plus many high-rated sophomore and junior prospects among 71 invited. COACH PETE ELLIOTT says only It lettermen are among the 66 men on the invitation list at Illinois and one of these, Halfback Dick McQuade, probably won't be able to begin practice Friday because of a recent ankle injury. Jack Mollenkopf moans of 18 lettermen graduated by Purdue and the rebuilding job that must be done around 23 available "P" winners on his Boilermaker squad of 69 invited candidates. The 69 include 23 Ohio boys; from East Liverpool, Mansfield, Garfield Heights, Cleveland, Ashland, Cincinnati, Zanesville, Parma, Cambridge, Oregon (Toledo), Westerville, Lyndhurst, Russell, Mayfield Heights, North Oimstead, Adena and Alliance. The Purdues will be potent. ARA PARSECiHIAN at Northwestern also is crying about the rebuilding job necessary because of losses by graduation of Dick Thornton. Mike Stock, Elbert Kim-brough, Ray Purdin and some others. Graduations are an old and inescapable headache to the football coach, and his recruiting agents work overtime to minimize the pain. Parseghian describes the new season as "Northwestern's biggest rebuilding job since 1958. We must replace starters al such key positions as quarterback, fullback, and ends. Our season will hinge on how well we succeed fn filling these spots." Parseghian could be a bit peeved, not only because Purdue landed 23 from the Buckeye state but because he landed only 21. Ohioans on Northwestern's 67-man squad hail from Cardington, I'iqua, Sandusky, Steubenville, North Canton, Euclid, Massillon, Campbell, Lorain, Mansfield, Lima, Dover, Cleveland Heights, East Liverpool. Dayton, Cincinnati, Akron and Cuyahoga Falls. i-s-s WOODY HAYES isn't crying, down Columbus way: at least nut yet. Wondy's squad of 66 includes one from Michigan, one from West Virginia, three from Pennsylvania and 60 Ohioans. or three more than Mollenkopf and Parseghian hap together. The Buckeyes must he rated with the best. We'll know more about them, however, after watching them in first practices. We'll try to withhold final appraisal until after we've seen the other nine squads in early drills. Maybe you'll find names and news of interest in our day by day reports from around the circuit.

Folks had begun to ask whatever became of Mantle. He hadn't hit a homorun since Aug. 2()th and most of the experts already had written him off as a possible threat to Ruth's record any more this year. However, Mantle broke the dry spell Wednesday night when he socked his 47th homer -his first in 10 days to help the Yankees defeat the Minnesota Twins, 4 0. .MANTLE'S homer, off loser Jim Kaat, kept him two games ahead of Ruth's record pace, hut far more important, to Manager Ralph Houk, anyway, it also helped the Yankees increase their lead to 22 games over the menacing second place Tigers. Maris drove in one of the Yankees' runs with one single in three official trips as Bill Stafford limited the Twins to four hits for his 12th victory. The Chicago White Sox took the Tigers over the hur dles, 7-4, the Cleveland Indians handed the Washington Senators their 12th straight loss, 9-0, the Boston Red Sox clipped the Kansas City Ath letics, 9-3, and the Baltimore Orioles crushed the Los Angeles Angels, 11-4.

"We can't tell yet," Heian said, "but it's probably flu or maybe even a touch of nervous tension." "IT HIT me all of a sud ten." Cash said.

Neal Gentile Cincinnati, 31, San P'rancisco nipped Milwaukee, 2-1, and Philadelphia defeated St. Louis, 4-3. Juan Pizarro registered his 11th victory for the White Sox by hurling a five-hitter against the Tigers and striking out 10. Floyd Robinson led Chicago's 13 hit attack, driving in three runs with as many hits. The Orioles hit five homers and the Angels one in their game at Wrigley Field in Los Angeles, where an AL record was set with a total of 204 homers in one season in one ball park. The old record was 200 set in Detroit in 1959. Jim Gentile hit his 43rd to make it 199 and Jackie Brandt's homer tied the mark. Earl Robinson's homer in the sixth broke the old record. Two-run homers by Charley Neal and Norm Sherry carried the Dodgers to their victory over the Cubs. Tom Sturdivant checked the Reds on four hits to win his fourth game for the Pirates since they brought him up from the minors last month. Michigan Boy 68 In Bantam By riNDY W AGNER Fifteen-year-olds Jim Baske of Benton Harbor, Mich., and Renee Powell of Canton were the ones to catch today as the fifth annual Great Lakes Bantam Golf Tournament concluded its two-day, 36 hole stand at Mayfair Country Club.
