'Dirty Player' Label Troubles Sam Huff By JACK HAND Associated Press Sports Writer NEW YORK (AP)-Dark storm clouds hang low over the violeht world of Sam Huff. Smilin' Sam is a troubled man, bewildered by bitter "fan" mail and clippings that start "Dear Sir, you rat.." Critics complain that Sam carried the violence too far in his personal duel with Jim Taylor of Green Bay in the National Football League title game a month ago. They claim Huff was guilty of piling on and committed extracurricular mayhem on the person of the Packers' fullback. Huff insists he played rough, but not dirty, football. "I never hit him (Taylor) when he didnt have the football, said Huff "I don't remember ever hitting him after the whistle. The official was right there. If you hit a man after the whistle, I am sure he would call it. "It was rough all right but not dirty. I think our game with Chi- * * * cago was even rougher but nobody complained about any dirty play. You can't afford to play dirty in this league. When two 240-pounders come together it is bound to be rough but the owners and coaches of the New York Giants do not advocate or teach dirty football." The mail has been so bitter that Huff's wife and family have been shaken. "My wife wants me to quit, said the Giants' middle linebacker. "I dont want to do that. But I can't figure it out. One year you're the greatest, the next year you're the dirtiest. "You should see the letters I get with clippings. Most of them mention that television show I did about 'The Violent World of Sam Huff.' One fellow wrote, Tm surprised at you the way you played against Taylor. But even when I see you in the commercials you can't resist grabbing your own son by the face guard.' How about that? Marvelous Mart; Named "Good Guy 99 "People never stop to think what that sort of stuff does to a man or his family. I don't want to be labeled a dirty player but I don't know what to do about it." Huff and the Giatns were so disturbed about the reaction that they held a special showing of the title game films to let newsmen draw their own conclusions. The writer was one of those invited to watch. This observer saw the title game in person and thought it was a rugged contest, played under impossible weather conditions in fierce cold on a frozen field with gale winds. Tyalor, obviously, was the target of the Giants' defense as Paul Hornung was sub-par. In our opinion the officials were a whistle in often are: in some a bit slow on the cases but they Green Bay or Cleveland game for both Taylor and Jimmy Brown are known for the extra yardage they pick up on the so-called "second effort." Great One For Piling On. Says Jim Taylor By LARRY BONKO Norfolk Ledger-Star Sports Writer NORFOLK, Va. (AP) - Jim Taylor has muscled his way into the middle of Sam Huff's critics. And the Hercules of the Green Bay Packers' backfield is short on silver lining for those dark storm clouds hanging over the violent world of Huff. Huff insists he played rough but not dirty football in the Giants- Packers championship game of Dec. 30. Taylor, talking by telephone from his home in Baton Rouge, La., said "some hard feeling" existed between these two gladiators. "Sam Huff is a great one for piling on. He has always done it. Sam likes being there on top of the pile. But I'm not saying Huff played dirty against me. I haven't seen our game movies," Taylor said in an exclusive interview with the Norolk, Va., Ledger-Star. "But somebody was in there twisting my head. And somebody was in there digging a shoulder and elbow into me. I had a few words with Huff about it. "I still hurt from that game with the Giants, particularly my elbow. It was smashed up pretty good. And on an out-of-bounds play I bit my tongue and ended up swallowing blood for the rest of the game. I still don't know how that happened. I mean I don't know where the blow came from." The National Football League's leading rusher and most valuable player went on to say he cannot hurl charges of "dirty player" against Huff. "As I said, I must see those movies first. But I do know that more penalties for unnecessary roughness should have been called.' A Rich Golf Pot At Palm Springs By BOB MYERS Associated Press Sports Writer PALM SPRINGS, Calif. (AP)A veritable army of golfers—128 professionals and 384 amateurs- pitched camp here today on the eve of the $50,000 Palm Springs Classic. Pitched camp is a term used loosely because many of the play- for-pay lads are bedding down in private homes which average out in cost at "His" and about $100,000, some "Hers." Arnold Palmer can regard it as a Classic, with no qualifications, but for others it can be a 5-day, 90-hole period of horror and frustration. The $50,000 pot is the big prize but there are "fringe" benefits available. One is the $15,000 purse which will reward the pros for the valor and bravery of playing the first 72 holes in company with a set of three new amateurs in each of the four rounds. Then there is the chance of scoring a hole-in-one and bagging a $50,000 bonus. Lloyds of London, which underwrites the gamble, as of now is $113,200 out of pocket, discounting the heavy premiums the tournament must pay. They made it considerably tougher this time. It used to be an ace scored on any hole on the four courses employed qualified for the loot. Now it has to be made on a designated hole, and none is shorter than 217 yards, which is No. 12 at the Eldorado Country Club. The longest in 240, at Tamarisk Country Club's No. 14. Palmer's claim to ownership of the tournament is simple. He's won it twice in three tries—in 1960 when the winner collected $12,000, and last winter when the booty was a mere $5,300. This time Palmer, Gary Player, Jack Nicklaus and their brethren will be shooting for $9,000. Someone Didn't Vote For Bearcats By TED MEIER Associated Press Sports Writer For the ninth straight week the University of Cincinnati, unbeaten in 33 straight games, including 15 this season, is the No. 1 team in college basketball. The defending national champions slipped a bit in this week's Associated Press poll although they passed one of their toughest tests. Instead of being the unanimous choice, the Bearcats gained only 42 of the 43 first-place votes cast by the AP panel of sports writers and broadcasters. The other first-place vote went to third-place Duke. Chicago Loyola, unbeaten in 18 starts, retained its No. 2 ranking, but Illinois, beaten last Saturday by Cincinnati, fell to fourth. Duke moved up following its thumping of West Virginia. The 111-71 lacing at the hands of the Blue Devils dropped West Virginia out of the Top Ten. The Top Ten with points based on 10 for first place votes, 9 for second, etc. and first place votes in parentheses: 1. Cincinnati (42) 429 2. Chicago Loyola 380 3. Duke (1) 332 4. Illinois 309 5.

Wichita 57 By TED MEIER Associated Press Sports Writer NEW YORK (AP)-The saga of "Marvelous Marv" Throneberry promises to develop into one of baseball's most fascinating stories. Throneberry was just a run-of- the-mill ball player with the New York Mets until Jim Becker, an Associated Press sports writer, pinned the "Marvelous Marv" tag on him last year. The label found immediate acceptance with his teamates and fans. Soon it was "Marvelous Marv this and Marvelous Marv that." Overnight Throneberry became a drawing card. He continued to mess up plays on occasion, but when he did the fans generally hollered good-naturedly "that's Marvelous Marv for you." Another chapter in the "Marvelous Marv" story came Sunday night when Throneberry—hardly anyone calls him that anymore- received the Ben Epstein Memorial "Good Guy" award at the annual dinner of the New York chapter of the Baseball Writers' Association. He brought roars of laughter from the crowd, including his boss, Manager Casey Stengel, when he finished his short acceptance speech. "They told me not to stand up here too long holding this plaque," Marvelous Marv said. "I might drop it." Braves Beat KWU. 66-50 SALINA - The Ottawa University Braves came through with their sixth Kansas Conference basketball win last night when they defeated the Kansas Wesleyan Coyotes, 66 to 50.
