BIythevin* (Ark.) Courier Mnn - Saturday, August 18, DM- Ptg* DICK SAYS HE'S TOO SMALL little Mo'-On Defense Dick ModMlewiH Packers Slow Up Soyers By MURRAY DUTCHMAN HIRAM, Ohio-(NEA)To g»t r«ady for nil Mth season of professional football, Dick Modzelewski — more familiarly known as Little Mo-went to his farm outside Cleveland and pitched 2,300 bales if hay and dug 50 fence post holes. Then he reported with-the veterans for the training camp of the Cleveland Browns here in bucolic northern Ohio, sat down in a chair and promptly found out he couldn't get up. His back had gone out of whack. Dick wasn't exactly moaning. He skipped the early muscle stretching that's such a pain, to the older players. But he's already at his playing weight of 241 pounds, which comes as something of a shock because I've been hurtered to believe that Mo, with his broad shoulders that begin where his head leaves off, always weighed around 260. "If I were a coach," he said, "I wouldn't take me -too small nowadays to be a defensive tackle. I guess that when I came into the league with the Washington Redskins my first year I weighed 255, but by the time 'I got to New York in 1956, I was down.' "Listen, I'm P.ilack dumb. I figured out that the older you got, the less weight you should carry, or you'd lose your quickness." * * * When Mo came into professional football, he recalled, there were only a doz- Illllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllilll' 1 Memphis? ATLANTA (AP)-Atlanta businessman Harry Berchenko said Friday he has • been granted permission by the new U.S. , Football League to establish a team in Atlanta, or. Memphis, Tenn. Vince: 'Somebody Fell Asleep' ' - :Ry REN HARTNETT MILWAUKEE (AP)-MaSter mentor Vince Lombardl of the Green Bay Packers may have found a way to stop Chicago's Gale Sayers. Now all Lombardi has to do is figure out how to stop Joe Marconi. Sayers was held to only two yards rushing in the first half of Friday night's 13-16 Bear exhibition victory over the National Football League champions. But In the second half, Sayers began finding daylight thanks to Marconi. "They were keying on me (in the first half). Marconi did a helluva job making It easier for JOn Arnett and me to run," said Sayers who came back to set up one touchdown and score another in the decisive third period. Sayers finished the night wife 58 yards rushing while Marconi picked up 61. The 11-year veteran from West Virginia also gained 44 yards on the receiving end Of Rudy Bukich's passes. * * * "Somebody fell asleep on our pass defense on Marconi in the second Half," said Lombardl. 'I'm not going to say who it was." But what happened may have been what Coach George Halas o! the Bears predicted would lappen this season as opposing teams try to stop Sayers. "They'll rig special defenses for him. What we are working on is aimed at taking advantage of those special defenses. When you concentrate too much on one man, you leave yourself mflre vulnerable," Halas said earlier tills week. , Down 3-0 at Halftirne and able to bring the ball into Green Bay territory for Only two plays in the first 30 minutes, the Bears caught fire after intermission. They scored on a Bukich-to- Marconi pass and a 17-yard-run by Sayers. The Packers, who played the SWING MAN - R. H. Sikes of Springdale, Ark., appears to be ready for a curve ball. What He's doing, really, is using some body english after a putt. He won the Cleveland Open. BILLY . . . MASON . . . -AND WHO? 'Babe' Shoots 68 By HERSHCEL N1SENSON |won a tour event. CLIFTON, N.J. (AP) - Remember the name Billy Casper. He's the two-time U.S. Open champion who's won four tournaments on the current tour and is leading in his bid for a fifth. Also remember the name of Milton Daniel (Babe) Lichardus. You may never hear it again. These two, along with bespectacled Mason Rudolph, held the top three spots today as • the $100,000 Thunderbird Golf Classic went into its third round. Casper and Rudolph are familiar golfing names but it was Lichardus, a 37-year-old, bettle- browed local product, who had veteran golfers stumped trying to recall the last time a club pro ffliijiiniiiiiiiiiiMiiiiniiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiHiiin Fiqhts AUCKLAND, N.. - Toro George, 129, New Zealand, stopped Jesse Del Valle, 131, Philippines, 12.

Rookie Ron Rector, playing in the place of Hornung, crashed over from the three. ¥ * * The Buffalo Bills crushed the Denver Broncos 25-3 and the Kansas City Chiefs walloped the Miami Dolphins 33-0'in two other exhibitions Friday night. A 74-yard touchdown run by Butch Byrd and four field goals by Booth Lusteg sparked the AFL champion Bills over Denver before 28,144 at Buffalo. A Miami turnout of 34,277 saw the Dolphins outclassed by Kansas City. Len Dawsofi fired a 15- ya'rd TD pass to Chris Burford in the first period for all toe scoring the Chiefs needed. en guys in the entire National League who weighed over 250 pounds. Now you check the roster of the Los Angeles Rams and you fin'' that their lightest defensive lineman teeters at 260. Modzelewski Bridges the entire era of the popularity, rise of pro ball. And the salary spiral that finds obscure linemen checking in at $100,000. "I didn't have no lawyer with me when I went to sign my first contract," he mused as he lounged in Brooks Hall on the Hiram campus where the Browns make their summer headquarters. "I brought along my father to check the contract. He couldn't read or write." Mo, an All-American tackle at Maryland on the heels of his brother, Ed, who was an All-American fullback, was the number two draft . choice of the redskins. "I looked at my father and asked should I sign. He says, 'How much?' "I told him $4,500 a year. He said, 'Sign it. It's mOrs than you'll make in tha coal mines.' " * * » Mo was traded to the Pittsburgh Steelers and then to New York after Giant players in their game reports had mentioned him at-the toughest lineman they faced. "I made," he grinned, "their all-opponent team." That's all he ever made, to, in his 13 full seasons as a pro. Little Mo played on six Eastern Conference champions with the Giants, but he was never voted to the Pro Bowl. During his time, however, the great defensive platoon of the Giants created a whole new concept of football in the minds of fans. The defense became the glamor part. A lot of it was stimulated by a television show. The Babe, assistant pro at the Hollywood Golf Club in Deal on the Jersey shore, fired a 63 Friday for a two-day total of 139, one stroke behind Casper, who also had a 68, and tied with Rudolph, who carded a 70. Two strokes back at 140 was Canada's George Knudson while Gary Player, Billy Martindale, Chales Coody and Bob Zimmerman all had 141 Over the 7,055- yard, par 72 Upper Montclair Country Club course. The low 70 and ties made today's third round. Lichardus, facing newsmen in the same chair occupied earlier by Casper, Player, Jack Niek- laus and Arnold Palmer, apologized "for keeping you boys here this late.. .but this was my career round." * * * Lichardus blrdled five of the first 11 holes Friday, had his only two bogeys at 14 and 15 but recovered with another birdie on 16. His bid for a birdie on 18 and a share of the lead failed when a 15-foot putt rimmed the right side of the cup. Still In the running were Nicklaus and Palmer, with 143 and 144 respectively. SHORT SHORTS NEW YORK (AP) — The National Basketball Association announced today that first team choices for the annual Aii- Star team henceforth will receive $500 apiece.

West Memphis must face Wharton, Tex., this afternoon, with the winner facing New Orleans tonight for the title. All three teams have one loss in the .tournament. Randall Helcel hurled a no-hitter for West Memphis. NEW YORK (AP) - Mike McTigue, the Irishman who Won the world light-heavyweight boxing championship from Battling Siki in Dublin on St. Patrick's Day in 1923, died Friday in Queen General Hospital after a long illness. He was 73. A native of County Clare, Ireland, McTigue came to the United States after his victory over Siki and retained his title with a draw against Young Stribling in Columbus, Ga. He lost the title on a decision to Paul Barlenback in Yankee Stadium in 1925. McTigue fought from 1914 through 1930. In 141 bouts he won 81, including 57 by knockouts, and lost 22. He fought six draws and 36 no decision bouts.

The Violent World of Sun Huff, a Twentieth Century production, and Little Mo was a featured performer. "They had me driving Sam up to the training camp," he recalled, "to start the show. Then he said, 'Take my bags, Mo.' "And I said, 'Aw £«-•.' "Only they yelled, 'Cut!' "And Ihey convinced me to carry them up. I had a cousin who lived in West Virginia, where Huff came from, and all the time they kidded him about me being Sam's valet. And I used to tell him that was a lot of bull. "SO this show comes out with me driving Sam around and carrying his bags." * . * » But the years have been good to Mo. He and Ed own a big restaurant in Cleveland and a big farm, He has only a slight touch of gray around the temples. His back has bothered him since Swede Svare, his own Giant teammate, bumped him on a play in 1957, but hasn't interfered with his mobility, which Is how Mo compensates for his relative lack of size. When he cam« to Cleveland in 19*4, the Browns promptly won their first title in six years, and a lot of credit went to Mo for breeding a winning attitude. At the age of 35, he hasn't got far to go. "This," he announced quietly, "will be my last year. Charley COnerly always told me to quit when it still hurts on Sunday afternoon after the Sunday before. "Right now, I'm up to Saturday 'night." mSSOM State Fishing Records LITTLE ROCK-Here is a capsule look it the state fish records: Largemouth bass —12 pounds, one ounce from Lake" Norfork.

If ill the campers In America improperly discarded only . one pound of litter throughout the year, there would be 30 mil-';. lion pounds of rubbish distributed over America's recreational; areas. '' An ounce of trash dropped from every car Using U.S. high- : T ways would in a year's time amount to a mountain of litter and weigh 260 million pounds. Litter is also a major cause of forest fires, stream pollutino, and health hazards. Littering Is not limited to just parks and highway road-. sides, but is creeping into lakes and streams. .Many Sportsmen may not be aware of the federal law that can result iii a,, fine of $500 to $2500, or imprisonment up to one year, for littering navigable water of the U.S. This applies whether lit- • ter is tossed overboard from a boat or left on the shore.
