Are Cause Of By RED FAUGHT iFrahklin. College Football fans thrill to the long touchdown run or pass and almost demand such plays from their team.-These 'plays are rare and only occur because of major error by the defense. Football coaches give considerable thought' and planning to vertical field position! The horizontal field position ;is not as •important since the ball is returned to a "hashmark" that is well i within the sidelines. The team MUST understand the offensive theory. An attempt is made to operate.- the offense in such a manner that when the ball is given to the opponent they will: have 80 yards to go. The ball must NOT be surrendered to the opponent on the offensive side of the 50 yard line. During the game the offense will gain possession of the football on an average of only 13 times. The offense must make the most of each-opportunity. They must NOT stop themselves by making ; mistakes siidh a$ fumbles, broken assignments, and rule ;violations. Offensive Weapon The punt is often regarded as a signal of an inept offense. The punt should be an integral part of the offensive attack. To substantiate this point of view the 1963 Franklin College team punted more times than any of their Bine opponents. iThe punting game resulted in more yards gained than either the passing attack or the run" attack. I The defensive teamj is "sold" on the idea that noj team is capable of marching! 80 yards to a score. The opponent will make enough mistakes to cause them to falter. If this idea prevails, then the offensive team cannot be expected to march 80 yards when'they have the ball. An examination of the Franklin Co]fegi offense lover .the past three years has revealed that no score has resulted from continuous offense when possession of the ball began inside their own 15 yard line. — Goal Line to 15 This .is the area where the offense must have a first down. The team must make an intense effort and call upon their best play attack. If! they fail and are forced to punt they will surely give the opponent the US. Olympians Draw Crowds To Workouts TOKYO (DPI) —.The earthquake "which rocked Tokyo in the early hours this morning did hot bother the United. States track teain, which worked out with a diligence at the Olympic Village later in the day. iAt 4:14 a.m. local time (2:14 p.m. EDT), sleeping Tokyo was rocked by a fairly heavy quake which registered three on the Japanese scale of seven. \ Asked if the quake had- worried him, broad-juinper Ralph Boston. quipped: "Was there one?" The lanky Boston, favored to win the Olympic title in his specialty, added: '"No, I slept through it but some of the boys said something about it at breakfast." The team rose at 6:30 a.m. and did some light work before breakfast, but an hour or so after the meal it took to the track by storm for a lengthy workout. Just as Wednesday, nearly all the foreign athletes in the villlage were on hand to watch the Americans work. World pole vault record holder Fred Hansen had-a big galley around him and the cameras popped every time he' moved down .the runway. Parry 6'iBrien was another to attract a big crowd as he worked at the shot, while track stars like Hays Jones, Henry Carr and Ulis Williams had many admir-. ers as they went full blast in shot sprints. The distance aces did nothing more than jog. Coach Payton Jordan having worked them hard earlier on an outside track. The U.S. contingent was swelled by a further 74 arrivals early today. Included were the women's track team, some male swimmers and the bulk of the administrative staff. ball on their own side of the fifty yard line. If the team can move the ball from' inside their own 15 yard line to their own 30 yard line before they have to punt, illness Forces Resignation Of '. CINCINNATKUP'I) — Danny Murtaugh, who led the Pittsburgh Pirates to the pennant and world championship in 1960, announced early today that he is resigning as manager because of ill health His announcement, came in a clubhouse news conference after the Pirates . defeated the Cincinnati Reds 1-0 in 16 innings Wednesday night dropping the Reds a full game behind St. Louis in the National League pennant race. . ""I am resigning in order to be fair to my family, the ball club, the city of Pittsburgh and the Pirate public," Murtaugh said, /; The resignation is ' effective at the end of the season, Murtaugh's eighth and the second longest in terms of continuous service with the same team. General Manager Joe L. Brown said,. "we are accepting Danny's resignation with the utmost regret. However, we are Chappy he has agreed to stay with the Pirate organization in an administrative capacity." Murtaugh, 47, has been in poor health in recent years, a Pirate spokesman said, and missed a number of gamec earlier this season because of what was described as a cold. Murtaugh replaced Bobby Bragan in August of 1957 and led the team to a second place finish the following year. In 1960, under Murtaugh, the Pirates won their first pennant in 333 years and their first world championship in 35 years beating the New York Yankees in seven games. When we •informed coach John Moses yesterday' that Tipton had just been rated in the UPI ' coaches football -poll, he was naturally delighted. He also felt it would give his players greater incentive Saturday against Cathedral .to retain- that rating and move up in the standings. He wondered, however, which one of the ten coaches on the statewide panel had givn him a 10th place vote, feeling it might have been Cathedral coach Joe '.Dezelan, who is one of the panelists, as is Alexandria's Jim Wehsollek, whom the Blue Devils tried so hard to impress irt that 63-6 game last season.. Well, there's no -mystery to that now! Our Alex sportswriting colleague, Bob Dickson discloses in his column Wednesday that "Wick Obliges". Must Prove Selves We mentioned a week ago that Elwood might have been a ClC nominee on the basis of its unblemished record. Dickson says in' his column, "The main complaint last week was that Elwood should have been rated in the top 20. Not to take, a thing away from a fine Elwood squad, but it, is doubtful that even the Panthers could play the schedule of. the top 10 and still remain unbeat- they have done a magnificent job. They are out of danger and, with the punt will put the opponent in his - end of the field. 35 to 35 Yard Line This portion of the field between the 35 yard lines is often (Continued on page 8) NOTICE!

If'the Panthers'could convince a real outstanding Madison Heights "ball club Friday night, then POSSIBLY look for Elwood to be rated next week. "Tipton has a big date at Cathedral Saturday night. The Devils have been building up for this one for two weeks and the Irish ate down somewhat this year (YEAH. ALL THE WAY D6WN TO FIFTH). Even at that, most observers feel Tipton is stepping out of its' class in meeting the perennial Indianapolis powerhouse. Voted For Satans "Wehsollek cast a vote . for the Blue Devils this week. After the lofty rankings»-that Tipton held last year in basketball that seems to be one- of the major problems on the minds of the Tipton area people. Time will tell. Perhaps these ball clubs do deserve the ranking in the top ten, but if you will notice, none of the other coaches around the state voted for a CIC team this week. . .Dixie Quotes doesn't criticize Ham Rigg or John Moses for wanting to get the boys as high up as possible, but let's paint a true picture. Wehsollek has . been doing this." Not Asking Too Much Well, for one thing, we very sincerely appreciate coach Jim Wehsollek's vote this week, and we appreciate -also, - Dixie's clear statement of the facts. Our own feeling is this. Last year, we feel, - Tipton very definitely .belonged .in .the top 10. We believe "very .-strongly that the pissing 'combination of Steve- "VariHorn to Harvey Harmon • and Billy Moore was not just in the first 10 but absolutely the best in the state. The only trouble was, with the schedule we played, we had no chance to prove it. We also had a mightly strong line to protect the passer. At the end of the season, when the boys played their heart'out to no avail against Alex, Moses figured the only way we could get a rating was to play a team that was rated and asked athletic' director Dick Barr to get him one. Barr went out and got Cathedral; as Dixie puts it, "a perennial power." Will Be Satisfied The Satans may not h'avc the passing attack they did last season (but don't forget that 7 of7 passing by Jim Harmon) and until Saturday night we're not certain how strong or de PAGE 5 termined the line is, but"«we_ doubt if, for all-around power, there is a stronger backfield in the state. There may be one" individual* here" and there like Washington's Larry Highbaugh, but for speed, strength and.' DEPTH, we do like this back-' field. , ' The Blue Devils now have the CHANCE they wanted. What, they DO with that chance is up to them. " Wehsollek may have mised'' the boat' on Tipton last year, but he's given .the boys the] only shot in the arm they' should need this year. If, as many expect,' the "naptown" boys blow us off the field, we'll', apologize to Jim and forever shut our big yap. It's up to the! boys now, and all we can say is "GOOD LUCK".
