GAME OF THE WEEK Gregory Bumps Canton C -Hawks 27-6 Fortuna Tappe Lebert Hines "". "-"Sri : I ""J'l Kins T. Anderson T. Anderson Raul Macias Defends Hi Sanfam Til Los Angeles, Nov. 2 (JP) The World bantamweight boxing championship, a subject of in. ternational dispute for nearly 0 J - tvn iuur vctua. la uj uc ociwi.u Wednesday night when Haul (Raton) Macias of Mexico and Alphonse Hallmi of France meet in a 15-round fight at Los Angeles. The contest la booked f or Wrigley Field, under the pro motion of Cal Eaton and George Parnassus. It will be nationally televised, with a 300-mile radius of Los Angeles shut out. Halimi, a Jewish lad originally from Algiers, is recognized In Europe, New York and most other sections as the champion. ' Macias, a slight betting favorite, is the world champion of the National Boxing Assn. in the United States and in his native Mexico. Parnassus, who was Macias' representative in this country before he became matchmaker for the Olympic Boxing Club, has been trying for more than three years to arrange a fight to settle the dispute between 23-year-old Macias and a succession of European claimants. - Five thousand or more supporters are expected to attend from south of the border to see Mexico's idol, Raton (Little Mouse) shoot for undisputed rulership of the 118-pound division, Wrigley Field can accommodate 30,000 for a fight. The place is scaled to do $300,000, with prices ranging from $20 to $5. If good weather prevailed the promotion thinks near capacity will be approached. Macias won his claim to the title when he knocked out Chamrern Songkitrat of Thailand at San Francisco in March .1955. The title had been vacated May 16, 1954 by Jimmy , Carrnthers of Australia. Efforts to get Robert Cohen of France or Mario D' Agata of Italy in a match with Macias were unsuccessful. , Halimi helped clear up the controversy when he whipped D' Agata by decision in 15 rounds in Paris earlier this year. D' Agata previously had stopped Cohen. Macias," 23, has lost but one fight in 32, a knockout defeat by Billy Peacock, whom he had beaten previously. Nineteen of the victories were by knockout. Hamilton has lost but one match in 21. The loss was by a technical knockout a badly cut eye to featherweight Jimmy Carson in London this year. He has scored 12 knockouts. This is a big money fight for both boxers. Halimi was guaranteed $50,000, plus training and living expenses and transportation. Macias gets a similar $50,000 guarantee or a percentage that could hike his cut considerably. ! Snarks Gorilla Afiac By JOHN EGAN Argus-Leader Sporti Writer Canton, S.D., Nov. 2 Gregory's Gorillas climaxed a stiff nine-game schedule with a 27-6 victory over Canton's Big Eight Conference champions here Friday night. Coach Harry Gibbons' gang from the Rosebud region sloshed over a rain-drenched turf for a touchdown In each quarter in running their season's record to 7-2, including a 6-0 victory over Mitchell's ESD Kernels. Leading the way was a line-pounding backfield quartet composed 1 entirely of underclassmen. Sophomore quarterback Cal Stukel directed the Gorilla attack cleverly and tossed in a 39-yard scoring jaunt for good measure. Lopour Scores Junior fullback Dick lopour chalked up Gregory's first TD with a two-yard blast late in the first stanza. The tally climaxed a 47-yard drive that was highlighted by Stukel's 24-yard run on a fourth-and-four situation on the Canton 40. Frank Fortuna, another Junior, sprinted for the extra point. Canton closed the gap to 7-6 in the second period when Danny King went over from nine , yards out. The extra point try failed. On the payoff march, the Canton club of Burdel! Cop-Ian overcame a first-and-25 task on the Gregory 39 when Harry Rathje got ten and Terry Anderson 20 in succeeding plays. f With only two second left to play in the first half it appeared that the hosts would go to the (Iockerroom down only 7-6t but Stukel had other ideas. On the last play before intermission, Stukel went to his left after faking to Lopour and squirmed 39 yards into touchdown territory. Stukel shook off four would-be interceptors en route and a jarring block by Louie Lebert took care of the last C-Hawk on the nine-yard line. The count ran to 14-6 when end Lee Tappe, the Gorillas' hard-working all-state candidate, recovered Fortuna's fumble in the end zone on the conversion try. The running of King, Leroy Williamson, Rathje and Anderson enabled the Cantonites to keep Gregory in the hole most of the third quarter. Midway in the period, however, end Jim McMeen pounced on a Canton fumble at mid-field and Fortuna went all the way on the very next play. Stukel pitched to Bill Allum who skirted left end to run the scoreboard to 21-6. Interception Turns Tide Dick Van Ness intercepted a Stukel pass in the end zone to stall one Gregory drive in the fourth chapter but late in the period the invaders racked up their final touchdown when Allum raced 14 yards to cap a 65 -yard march that was sparked by the line-busting of Lopour. The extra-point attempt failed.

At right, Gregory mentor Harry Gibbons and quarterback Cal Stukel talk things over during a time out. Gorillas were paced by Tappe, who simply refused to let, bis end be turned, Lebert, Stukel and Dean Keith, senior tackle whose fumble recovery stopped a second-period Canton drive. Canton's defensive spark was provided, by Laverne Hines, 208 pounder who kept Gregory's up-the-middle stuff bottled up. Guard Bob Harris and halfback Dave Anderson also got their share of tackles for the C-Hawks. Despite the constant rain, ball-handling was excellent on both sides of the fence. Canton lost the ball twice on fum bles. Gregory's two fumbles were recovered by alert Gorillas. Stukel's long, lofty punts were a potent factor in the Gregory victory. His pass to Allum, on the play just previ ous to his second-quarter TD scamper, was the only one completed during the game. Neither team passed much. Each club registered nine first downs.

Si fjp UP it" CANTON HALFBACK Terry Anderson almost got away for a touchdown on the opening kickoff of the game Friday night but Frank Fortuna, the last Gregory defender, forced him out of bounds on the C-Hawk 42. ARCHERY Russ Briggs' 117 was high score this week. Still tops for the season is John Rogers 119. The Jack-a-Deer team had 353 for team high. High for the season is 373 by Brookings.

Kansas Wins Over Huskers Lincoln, Neb., Nov. 2 JPy-A. fired-up Kansas crew, soon to lose its coach, blocked a pair of Nebraska conversion kicks to day and turned the advantage into a 14-12 victory in a battle of win-hungry Big Eight con ference football rivals. A homecoming crowd of 31,000 sat in as Kansas, finishing out its last season under Chuck Mather, broke a five-year losing streak against the Huskers. A 74-yard drive on 14 straight running plays lifted the Jay-hawks to a 7-0 first quarter lead. But Nebraska capitalized on fumbles to set up scoring drives in the second and third quarter, and not until the fourth period did Kansas pull ahead to stay. Both of Dick Prusia's conversion kicks for Nebraska were blocked, while Wally Strauch made both his boots good and that was the difference. Strauch, six-foot senior Just returned to the Kansas lineup after injuries, plagued Nebraska all day. He scored the first quarter touchdown on a one-yard run around right end, and threw a perfect pass to end Jim Let-cavits for the fourth quarter clincher. Nebraska threatened stoutly in the fourth quarter, driving to a first down with only two yards to go for a TD. ' When three plunges failed to crack the Kansas defenses, George Cifra attempted a 16-yard field goal, and it, too, was blocked.

He got the most hits off me and he can play any position equally well." Lefty James, president of the American Fooball Coaches Assn. "With the death of Charlie Caldwell, the football profession has lost one of its greatest teach' ers and one of its finest repre sentatives." Fhillipe Washer, Belgian tennis player: "If the Americans beat us in, Davis Cup play, I'd certainly use the youngsters like Mike Green against the Australians. Vic Seixas and Herb Flam couldn't beat them, in a million years and the kids might get hot. I'm glad they didn't put Budge Patty on the U.S. team. There is a fellow I would hate to play. I think he's about the best." Joey Giardello, Brooklyn-born boxer in Denver to meet Wilf Greaves Tuesday: "There's rattlesnakes out here and if I see any, I'm going to run as fast as I can. I don't like snakes." Hec Knowles, manager of Spider Webb: "Well take Joey Giardello, Gene Fullmer, Charles Humez or anybody else to get in there. All we are looking for is a chance at the title. We'd go back and fight Rory Calhoun or Bobby Boyd again if it meant anything. But what's the sense of going backward unless there is an elimination tournament?" Willie Vaughn: "I thought I should have gotten it (the deci sion over Webb)- I thought Spider was trying to steal rounds in the last 30 seconds. I forced the fight. But Webb is about the best I ever fought. He's a good boxer, sharp and he throws plenty of punches." Spider Webb: -"They always seem to come up for me. Just like theys come up for Notre Dame. I ' hit Vaughn a dozen punches like the one I knocked out Jackie LaBua but nothing happened.',' mm s ft icniqan m Madison, Wis., Nov. 2 JP) Jim Ninowski's passes, plus a powerhouse Spartan line that relentlessly wore down the Badgers, brought Michigan State a 21-7 victory over Wisconsin in a bruising Big Ten football game today before 50,000 fans at Camp Randall Stadium. The Spartans, who are now 4-1 in conference action and are ranked sixth in the nation, moved a step closer to a possible conference and a Rose Bowl bid. The Badgers have a 1-3 record in Big Ten play. Michigan State took an early lead, thanks to Ninowski's passes, only to have the Badgers tie the score in the second quarter. The Spartans quickly went back into the lead, then added a third touchdown in a light rain during the last seconds of play. The Badgers were pushed .all over the field early in the game, then rallied to hold Michigan State well in check before tiring late in the game from the hard-hitting Spartan attack. Ninowski, the Big Ten's leading passer, put his team into position for both of its first half touchdowns when he connected with some fine tosses. A great return of a kickoff by Blanche Martin, speedy Spartan back, also was a feature on one of the touchdown marches. Michigan State went 48 yards in seven plays for its first touchdown after Ninowski connected on passes to Dave Kaiser, Martin and Walt Ko-walczyk early in the opening quarter. The payoff came on a four-yard smash by Don Gilbert and Kaiser added the first of his three extra points from placement. ; Early in the second period Jon Hobbs of Wisconsin recovered a fumbled lateral that Ninowski threw on- the Spartan 11. Three smashes took the ball to the one, and Danny s Lead to 21-7 Win Lewis went over for the Badgers' only touchdown. Hobbs converted. Martin got loose on his great run on the following kickoff, going all the way to the Badger 32 before Lewis nailed him from behind. Six play moved the ball to the 14. Then Ninowski's pass intended for Martin was ruled complete on the three on an interference ruling Martin scored from there. Most of the final two periods were played in the light' rain, with Michigan State controlling the ball much of the time. Late in the last quarter, the Spartans began a march from the Wisconsin 48 with Kowal-czyk doing most of the ball carrying. They drove to the one-foot line, and in the final seconds, Kowalczyk went over for the third. Spartan touchdown.

Aggies Barely Nip Arkansas Fayetteville, Ark., Nov. 2 W Massive John Crow, Texas A&M tanklike halfoack, tore through a determined Arkansas line on a 12-yard touchdown run to give the nation's No. 1 football team a slim 7-6 victory over the diehard Arkansas Razorbacks today. The Aggies, crowded by the fierce line play of the fired-up Razorbacks, were behind 6-0 at the end of the first period. Arkansas' touchdown was the only score against the Aggie defense by a Southwest Conference team this season. Notre Dame Takes First Defeat, 20-6 Middies' Socking Fullback Ray Wellborn Leads The Way South Bend, Ind., Nov. 2 (;p)Navy Fullback Ray Wellborn of Houston, Tex., single-handedly punctured Notre Dame's comeback bubble today as the sharp Middies handed the Irish their first defeat in five football games, 20 to 6. Wellborn, fleet 183-pound junior with a deceptive change of pace, scored all three Middie touchdowns, one on a 79-yard scrimmage run which erased a 6-0 Notre Dame lead and the two others on a one-yard plunge and a 32-yard pass from Tom Forrestal. Prior to his one-yard scoring plunge which gave Navy a 14-6 lead in the third period, Wellborn streaked 44 yards on a screen pass to Notre Dame's 15. The Irish had much more than they could handle in once-defeated Navy which recorded its sixth victory and undoubtedly put the skids to No. 5 ranked Notre Dame in the AP poll. The Irish 6-0 lead in the first period came on a quick stroke of luck. Wellborn fumbled on a plunge. The ball popped into the hands of Notre Dame halfback Dick Lynch, who streaked 46 yards for a touchdown. Appears Costly When Navy's Bob Reifsnyder blocked Monty Stickles' extra point try after Notre Dame's touchdown, it appeared a costly omission but not for long. With Notre Dame crippling itself with penalties, 55 yards of which came in the second quarter, and Navy outplaying the Irish most of the way, the Middies struck impressively for touchdowns in each of the last three quarters. In the second quarter, Wellborn took a pitchout from Forrestal at Navy's 21-yard line, twice changed his course and sped 79 yards for a touchdown. Halfback Ned Oldham, star Navy runner who saw little action because of a knee injury against Penn last Saturday, booted the first of his two conversions and the Middies led 7-6 at half time. Navy marched 73 yards in 11 plays for a touchdown after receiving the second half kickoff. The Forrestal io Wellborn screen pass nearly went all the way, but Wellborn was dropped on Notre Dame's 14 after scampering 44 yards. Forrestal twice was repulsed trying to sneak across from the one-yard line, then Wellborn dove high over the middle of the line to score. Again, Oldham converted and Navy led 14-6. Screen Pass Navy's third touchdown came on a thr,ee-play strike from mid-field, Forrestal pitching a screen pass to Wellborn, who tore 32 yards down the sidelines to score. Oldham's third point try was wide. Beyond Lynch's 46-yard scoring run with Navy's fum ble, the Irish could penetrate no deeper than the Middie 28. . They did this in the final period on a 44-yard pass from Izo to end Dick Prendergast, It was apparent that Notre Dame's comeback registered on victories over Purdue, Indiana, Army and Pitt was not the work of a super team. At least, today, the Irish were a struggling team against a crisp Navy club and may be headed for plenty of trouble with Michigan State, Oklahoma and Iowa coming up the next three Saturdays. The Irish were held to. a skimpy 83 yards by the stout Navy defense which often threw an eight-man line against the green-shirted Notre Dame. Navy, on the other hand, rolled up 237 yards rushing and didn't need too much passing help from talented thrower Forrestal.
