EBCOil regroups for Southern- RALEIGH - North Carolina State's football forces will try to regroup for an intersect ional meeting with Mississippi Southern at Mobile Saturday night, following disappointing 17-6 loss to Duke. The Wolfpack will face in Mis-lissippi Southern a team that has won five of six games this year, and one that has taken two of the three meetings with State. Only a spectacular effort by all-American quarterback Roman Gabriel enabled the Wolfpack to down the Southerners, 20-13, a year ago for State's only win in the series. Gabriel connected on nine-of-nine passing attempts in the first half for two touchdowns, plus plunging over for a score himself in that win. Coach's comment "There is nothing small-college about Mississippi Southern, and I don't care how they are rated," said State Coach Earle Edwards. "T h e Southeastern Conference schools won't schedule them, so so they have difficulty in getting a major schedule and major rating. "The Southerners are fast, big and have excellent pursuit. Nobody has been able to run much on them. They mix up their attack well, with quarterback Don Fuell's rolling out on the pass-run option their most effective weapon." Lack of blocking State's biggest problem this year has been the lack of offensive blocking, with the Wolfpack unable to generate many long scoring drives, despite the fine performances of Gabriel, who hag hit on 65 of 123 passes for six touchdowns and 60S yards. Inconsistency also has been a major characteristics of the State team, which has won but twice in six outings. "We just can't seem to put enough good, plays together to offset a bad play on our part," coach Edwards said. "I thought we were making progress each week following our play in the Virginia, Alabama and Wake Forest games. But I guess the progress we made during that time wasn't enough to win against Duke. "I thought we did well in stopping Duke on the ground, but when they started to raise their arms to pass, we got into trouble. It was just like that in the Alabama game." Whenever the defense has bolted to halt an opposition march, it seems something will go wrong with an offensive play to stall a drive of State's. And often times the Wolfpack has not been able to get good field position to enable Gabriel to open up with his passing. Gabriel the boy Gabriel's 660 yards passing and running have accounted for 58 per cent of the Wolfpack's attack, and he has been responsible for eight of 11 touchdowns scored by State this year. He has tossed six touchdown passes. There have been times when the Wolfpack looked good on offense, with Gabriel's passing mixed in with some adequate running. But most times a dropped pass or missed block took the momentum out of drives the Pack could muster. The blockingl or the lack of it, has been the biggest drawback on offense, with the runners just not having a chance to get moving. The Pack has some good halfbacks in Carson Bosher, Joe Scarpati, Mike Clark, Tony Kos-zarsky and Al Taylor, but they have had to earn every yard they get.

Alabamans will lead Southerners Four seniors from Alabama will serve as co-captains for Mississippi Southern Saturday night when the Southerners face North Carolina State in Mobile's Ladd Stadium. Coach Thad (Pie) Vann announced that Leon Akins, end from Atmore; Don Fuell, quarterback from Guntersville, George Hultr, tackle from Grand Bay; and Morris Meador, quarterback from Butler, will lead Southern against the Wolfpack. This will be the fourth meeting between these two clubs with Southern holding a 2-1 series edge, although North Carolina State spoiled Southern's 50th anniversary homecoming last season with a 20-13 victory. The first two games were played in Mobile, and all three have been real thrillers. Southern's undefeated and untied 1958 team won the series inaugural 26-14, and Southern scored on a long pass play in the final seconds to take the 1959 game by a slim 19-14 count. This year's battle should fit the same mould as the preceeding three. North Carolina State's Housekeepers Association organized PICAYUNE - The Southeast Mississippi Executive Housekeepers Assn was organized Tues day night and officers were elected at the Lucius Olen Crosby Memorial Hospital at Picayune. Mrs. Catherine P. Flaherty of the VA Center at Biloxi was elected president and Mrs. Grace E. Blanton of Crosby Memorial was elected vice-president. Other officers elected were Mrs. Albert Dowdle, Buena Vista Hotel of Biloxi, secretary; William C. Ehlers, Singing River Hospital, Pascagoula, treasurer; Mrs. Florence F. Keyser, Crosby Memorial, historian. The association, which includes institutional and hotel housekeepers, will apply to the national association for a charter when a membership quota is reached. The next meeting is scheduled for the first week in December in Laurel. Gray's Gray's ton great field general Roman Gabriel will be playing his final season, and Southern will counter with a senior one-two punch at quarterback in the persons of the aforementioned Fuell and Meador. Both Fuell and Meador are 'complete' football players in that both can run and pass well on offense and are exceptionally fine defensive backs. Meador is also the team's number one punter. Akins, a 61, 195-pounder, is an outstanding defensive and has caught five passes for a total gain of 64 yards. Hultz, who is called 'Big Daddy' by his teammates, is a 245-pound starting tackle.

Roman Gabriel, the North Carolina State quarterback touted by many as the nation's best college football player this year? The answer: Nothing and he still may well be the No. 1 college player. He certainly will make it tough for any contenders at his position. The only trouble is that his isn't winning team so far, getting only two victories in six starts. Gabriel ranks fifth natonally in forward passing, completing 65 of six touchdowns. His 60.8 completion percentage is among the top ten. Offensively, he has scored twice in addition to his six TD tosses, one of which got the Wolfpack a 7-0 victory over Wake Forest. He passed for two others in a 21-14 victory over Virginia, and has scored or accounted for touchdowns in the other four games. This week Gabriel tries his wares against Mississippi Southern. Michigan State, the nation's No. 1 team, probably will have halfback Gary Ballman for its crucial Big Ten game against once-beaten Minnesota. Coach Duffy Daugherty, who said "we needed the workout to sharpen our squad," made it through a midweek scrimmage yesterday without any damage. Notre Dame Coach Joe Kuha-rich tried to solve his multiple injury problems by putting Gerry Gray at fullback for Mike Lind; Ed Hoeriter at center for Tom Hecomovich; Bob Lehman at guard for Nick Buonnoconti, and NOW SHOWING THRU SATURDAY OPEN 12:45 JU CRancis " I V . ..,. lliiaf? nni II sifyM Svl s"ggSHSE s I i H ft n n f l PLUS!
