Coach Wanted •With I.U. looking for a coach to replace Phil Dickens, they'll undoubtedly go looking for a big "name" coach to pacify alumni leaders who have been dissatisfied with results of the university's football campaigns. Actually, however,' they don't have to look too far to find a man we are certain could do the job for them even although he doesn't havfe the big college backgrounds The nfan we have in mind is not only as personable a man as they ' could locate but' has a brilliant record and is a gentleman through and through . ... that is none other than Jerry Huntsman, who after several years of brilliant success and several undefeated seasons at Huntington High School, stepped up to the Erlham College a couple of years back. Earlham doesn't grant athletic scholarships so Huntsman had to recruit the best talent he could strictly on the basis of their records with the books. He took a school that had gone nowhere in football and to the best of our knowledge has only lost one football game in the four years he has been there . . . what he could do with full NCAA scholarships to lure the nation's gridiron talent his way would really be something. We're urging Jerry to submit his application, anyway. Well, that's it folks—and "a Merry Christmas to ALL. STANDING ROOM ONLY BUFFALO. N.Y.

Writer NEW YORK (UPI)— Taking into consideration the speed and explosiveness with which current professional football is played, how far ahead must a team get in the first period to have a distinct psychological advantage over a rival in either of the two championship games Saturday and Sunday? Theoretically, the rivals are beautifully matched. The Buffalo Bills are only five-point favorites over the San Diego Chargers in the American Football League's title game at Buffalo on Saturday. And the Baltimore Colts are but six- point choices over the Cleveland Browns at Cleveland in Sunday's National £ e a g u e championship contest. When 10 red-hot pro grid fans were asked their opinions of when any of the weekend's four clubs would get a big psychological advantage over its opponent, all 10 fans came through with the same answer: Quick Lift "The team that scores the first touchdown against its opponents gets a big mental advantage." Practically all 10 agreed also that the major reason for the psychological advantage was that "the team which falls behind by a touchdown invariably games to overcome that deficit immediately." And, as often as not, they insisted, the "all-or-nothing-at-all strategy" boomerangs so pun- ishingly that the final score rarely is a genuine indication of the relative merits of the teams. Some of the statisticians among the 10 torrid football fanaticos recalled that routs are surprisingly common in pro title games. But Otto Graham, coach at the United States Coast Guard Academy who had a fabulous career as a passer with the Cleveland Browns, disagreed positively with the 10 fans. Said "big, black-haired Otto, "A one-touchdown lead over any of the four teams in the title games this weekend would not have any derogatory psychological effect. They'd be in there going all out, with their usual patterns of play—right down to the last three minutes." Magic Number Graham was asked, "But what if a team spurted into a three - touchdown lead in the opening period? Wouldn't that give the leader a distinct psychological margin and force the opponent to concentrate on an aerial game to catch up? "Yes — it might," Otto admitted. "A three-touchdown advantage at any place in the game should give the leaders a big psychological advantage. But that would not be true of a lead by only one or two early touchdowns." Do the pro's try harder to click off early tallies than to score later? "No," .said Otto, "they're doing their best at all times, although they may have to resort to changes in pattern under sufficient pressure." There have been routs In pro titles games, regardless of the losers' desperation attempts to rally. For example, the Chicago Bears blanked Washington, 73-0 in 1940. The Browns romped over the Detroit Lions, 56-10 in 1954, and over the Los Angeles Rams, 38-10, in 1955. The New York Giants clobbered the Chicago Bears, 47-7, in 1956. And the lions overwhelmed the Browns, 59-14, in 1957. Baltimore's Colts ripped the Giants, 31-16, in 1959 and San Diego whipped the Boston Patriots, 51-10, in 1963. Detroit Coach Wilson Quits By BOB FOWLER United Press International DETROIT (UPI) — Why did George Wilson quit his job Wednesday as head coach of the Detroit Lions? He wouldn't give his reason, but he didn't have to. It was obvious.. .after 48 hours of self-debate he had finally decided that his pride was worth more than a $45,000-a-year job. Wilson, who took over as head coach in 1957 under as bizarre circumstances as surrounded his departure, .met with team owner William Clay Ford and General Manager Edwin J. Anderson for 70 minutes Wednesday afternoon. At 3:25 p.m. a succinct three-sentence statement was distributed stating "Ford accepted Wilson's decision with regret."" Then, Wilson put on his hat and coat and stalked out the door. Ford and Anderson went to their respective offices and closed the doors. Whole Staff Gone Thus ended the secret events of the past five days that first led to Wilson's five assistants being fired while he retained his job and his resignation 48 hours later. After firing the five aides- Sonny Grandelius, Don Doll, Bob Nussbaumer, Les Bingaman and Aldo Forte—Ford told Wilson he could .remain. Wilson, after being told . by his aides not to sacrifice his job for theirs, decided to stay. What George Wilson thought about for the next two days only George Wilson knows for sure. But he must have undergone intensive soul-searching because Wednesday he was determined not to act as a virtual puppet coach for Ford. When Ford finally emerged from his cubicle he announced, "George really caught me by surprise. We had agreed to some changes — the firing of the coaches and personnel di rector Russ Thomas making the trades — Monday and I thought he was satisfied. "I'm sorry to see George go. He was a coach who had his players' loyalty. That's tough to find in a man and when you find him, you hate to lose him. Part 'Friends "However, you should know we parted as friends. He wished me luck, and I wished him success, too." • Ford said he would start looking for a new head coach after the holidays and that he had no immediate successor in mind. Wilson ended his collegiate career at Northwestern in 1937 and joined the Chicago Bears. As an end he was a star on teams that won five division titles in seven years. He ended his active career in 1948 as a player-coach. In August, 1957, Detroit coach Buddy Parker confessed during an after-dinner speech: "This team is uncoachable. I quit." Two days later Wilson was named to the top spot and he directed the team to the National Football League's Western Division title, then capped it off with a 59-14 win over the Cleveland Browns for " the league crown. x Since, Wilson's teams have BE EXTRA ALERT <|| IN - M>.

Candles Glow At Christmas Many traditional candle customs brighten todays Christmas- celebrations. From Ireland comes the custom of putting a lighted candle in the window on Christmas Eve to light the Holy Family's way. The candles denote a house where the Holy Family would have been welcomed, .not turned away as they-were af the inns in Bethlehem. In Germany, too, candles are placed in windows to provide a glowing welcome for the Virgin Mary and a host of angels who the Germans believe- pass over the countryside each Christmas. In many countries, such as Germany, beautifully decorated candles are an important part of Christmas celebrationis. Enhanced with religious and other figures, they add an artistic and reverent touch to holiday festivities. Similarly, many still celebrate the medieval custom of lighting a giant Christinas candle that burns brightly until Twelfth Night ' • Season's Greetings A. B.
