PAGE 4 THE TIPTON DAILY TRIBUNE Monday, Nov. 2,1964 Cleveland Browns Hold 2 Game Lead By FRED DOWN UP! Sports Writer Y. A. Tittle finally regained his magic touch — but it was the Cleveland Browns instead of the New York Giants who profited most. In the supreme irony of the 38-year-old- Tittle's most frustrating season, the New York hero of 1963 virtually made a gift of the 1964 Eastern Division title of the National Football League to the Browns Sunday when he passed the Giants to a 34-17 upset victory over the St. Louis Cardinals. That triumph, coupled with the Browns' 30-17 decision over VOTE REPUBLICAN EIDE TO POLLS CALL OS 5-6174 (Paill Political Advertisement) the Pittsburgh Steelers, sent Cleveland into a two-game lead in the Eastern race. With six games left to play, the Browns have a 6-1-1 record while the Cardinals are second with a 4-3-1 mark. It was a day on which Jimmy Brown gained 149 yards to raise his career total to a remarkable 10,135 yards hut it was Tittle who did the most for the Browns by engineering the Upset of the Cardinals. He threw four touchdown passes— twice as many as he had thrown in seven previous games this season — and wound up with 19 completions in 33 tries for 285 yards. New Attendance Record A crowd of 63,012 at Yankee Stadium — one of six capacity crowds that enabled the NFL to set a new one-day attendance record of 377,333 — saw Tittle throw two touchdown passes to Ernie Wheelwright and one 1 each to-Joe Morrison and Steve Thurlow. St. Louis star Charlie Johnson,' meanwhile, was held to 15-for-29 and one touchdown. Brown hammered away at the Pittsburgh line 23 times to become the first 10,000-yard rusher in pro football history but the payoff plays for the Browns were touchdown runs of seven and 13 yards by Ernie Green, a 25-yard pass by Frank Ryan to Clifton McNeil and field goals of 36, 22 and 16 yards by Lou Groza.- Green's seven-yard touchdown run snapped a 10-10 tie in the goal by Groza' boosted the score to 20-10. Groza's third field goal made it 23-10 before John Henry Johnson plunged one yard for the Steelers' second touchdown in the fourth period. The Baltimore Colts continued their drive toward the Western Division title when they walloped the San IFrancis- co' Forty-Niners 37-7 to set a club record of seven straight victories. They hold a 12-gam.e ead over the Detroit Lions, who took over sole possession of second place with a 37-17 victory over the Los Angeles Rams. The Washington Redskins de- SAYS; Hot Coffee HEY THERE!

Crowds were 47,' 527 at Chicago, 52,064 at Detroit, 60,213 at Baltimore, 44,278 at Minnesota, 60,671 at Philadelphia , and 49,568 at Pittsburgh. Lenny Moore ran two and five yards for his 12th and 13th touchdowns of the season as the Colts turned three Forty- Niner fumbles into touchdowns. The result was never in doubt after Steve Stonebreaker's eight-yard run with a John Brodie fumble boosted the Colts' lead to 16-0 in the second period. Johnny Unitas passed for the Colts' first touchdown. Milt Plum threw touchdown passes of 40, 37 and 16 yards and set up three other scores with his passing as he connected for 16 of 24 and 347 yards for the Lions. Terry Barr gathered in two of the scoring passes from Plum and Nick Pietrosante plunged for two other Detroit touchdowns. The Lions' defense held the Rams to 82 yards rushing and. recovered two fumbles. Take Quick Lead Charley Taylor's one-yard plunge following a 68-yard punt return by Pervis Atkins and Sonny Jurgensen's 29-yard scoring pass to Bobby Mitchell enabled the Redskins to jump off to a 14-0 lead over the Eagles in the first period. The Eagles never got going on land or in the air and didn't score a touchdown until Tim Brown's one-yard plunge in the last minute. Bart Starr threw two touchdown passes each to Max McGee and Jim Taylor to lead the Packers' romp over the Vikings. Starr, who wound up with 12-for-17 and 186 yards, combined with McGee for scoring aerials of 22 and 45 yards and with Taylor for payoff tosses of 35 and 10. Taylor also banged out 118 yards rushing — 46 more than the whole (Minnesota backfield. Touchdowns by Amos Perkins and Jim Stieger and Dick Van Raaphorst's 41-ya'rd field goal brought the Cowboys back from an early 3-0 deficit to a 17-3 halftime lead over the Bears. Then the Dallas defense contained the Bears until Joe Marconi plunged one yard with 68 seconds left in the game. National Football League Eastern Division W. L. T. Pet.

But taking nothing from- any of the other teams we've played this year, last night they were the best team jye've faced all season." The speaker was Tipton coach John Moses, and the team he was talking about was Peru, during a Saturday morning downtown coaches meeting at Dad's Restaurant broadcast by WBMP-FM. We have to agree thoroughly. Moses gave a lot of credit to coach Bob Larson and said the Peru mentor had Tipton perfectly scouted. . He also agreed one hundred percent with us on our high appraisal of Bengal quarterback Gayle Bomar whom he said was "great". Coming from Moses, who was "great" enough himself to pick up a nice bonus from the New York Giants, that should make Bomar a pretty happy young man. In describing the way he deported himself on the gridiron, Moses said he was a "Mississippi gambler" and everything he tried worked perfectly. You don't run across too many left handed quarterbacks, but it is no handicap to that young man. We've never seen better executed pitchouts than the way Bomar handled them (Friday night. Running with a flanker to his left or right, he'd hold the ball to the instant of perfection, forcing the Tipton defenseman .to commit himself to tackling either Bomar or his flanker, then, when it was 4oo late for the Tipton man'to change, he'd, pitchout to the flanker just as he was being hit, or cut and pick up yardage himseljt just as the flanker was being hit. And his deception was perfect. We worked the sidelines in the company of Tom Crouch who was keeping track of statistics for coach Moses, and on that 1 4 - y a r d touchdown scored by Bomar, both Tom and this writer standing in far better position than the "Tipton players to see the ball, were convinced they had downed the ball carrier when they stopped Bob Rockenbaugh at the line of scrimmage, only to see Bo mar rounding the far side of the field and crossing' the goal line with the pigskin tucked securely under his arm. It is true that five Tipton fumbles hurt the Blue Devils immeasurably, and it's just possible that they were responsible for a loss instead of a victory. But lets admit too, that if Peru hadn't been hitting hard most of those fumbles would never have occurred. We bated to see our Devils lose, but Friday night at least, they lost to a better ball club. Wabash Ahead Now ,the Satans face a game they HAVE to win. If they do, then they are assured at least a tie for the conference title with Elwood, sand if Elwood should fall victim to Huntington in that season final (and that's entirely possible with the Vikes having now won their last four in a row) the Satans will still rule the conference roost all alone. To defeat Wabash however, Tipton is going .to have to over come another great quarterback in the Apache's Randy Pell. Like Bomar, who transferred to Peru from Kentucky, Pell is also an out of state product, having played his previous !iigh school ball in Chicago. He's a big lad too who can pass or rollout, although we can't believe.he's as deceptive. It is possible that the quick- neks of Tipton's first touchdown, coming on Tipton's third play after getting the • ball, gave them a touch of overconfidence. If so, it was a fatal touch. It should also have been a good lesson. There'will be no excuse for anything this Friday. They'll be going for broke. For all the marbles. Coach Mosets knows it and the kids know it. We've got an awful lot of pride and an awful lot of confidence in these boys, and we very sincerely believe that when they take the! field at.7:45 Friday night for their last appearance in football uniforms before their hometown fans, they're -going to prove our confidence'is justified. Bad Night The moment for which a lot of Windfall fans have been waiting comes up on a bad night. The Dragons open their 1964-65 basketball season at home Tues -J day night against Walnut Grove, but there are a lot of fans who would like to see that game^who will be unable io.attend .because of their intense interest -in' another battle being 1 , ySagedT the same day . . .- This one at the election (booths. We're in that category ourselves, having ,to glue our ear to a telephone at the courthouse in order to cover the Tipton county returns not only for the Tribune but for UPI, AP and National Election Service (radio). We hope coach. Roy Watson, assistant coach Jim Stewart or the Dragon team manager can get us the box score of that game early enough Wednesday for in- page. . Save Those' Sheckels And don't forget, you fans in the southern half of the county who are interested in the Blue Devils this winter . . . season tickets will' go on sale next week. In all probability next' Wednesday, but we'll have definite word on that later; From all we've seen and heard, this is a season NO ONE is go ing'to want to-be left without a ticket. Nuff Sed! Friday Night Fans, we know a lot of you are tied up with bowling and various other activities. 'But for nine starting seniors and several others who played vital roles oifodefense like Mike Rice and Ron Long as just two examples this Friday night is going to be their last appearance in a Tipton High School Football uniform. For some of them, their last appearance in any athletic uniform for T.H.S. They've given Tipton some of its finest moments of football glory this year, and we feel it is only appropriate that Friday night, in their last game of the season, we fans get out to Tipton field and, win or lose, repay them for those moments of pleasure with the biggest support they've had all year. They've given us nights to remember ... let's give TfHEM one to remember.
