TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 18,1958 BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PACK MINI Football Forum: Sooners, Buffs Get Big 7 Nod As 5 Clubs Face Battle Royal Sixth of a aeries By DON FAUROT Head Coach, Misiourl COLUMBIA, Mo. — (NBA) — It looks very much like an exciting Oklahoma - Colorado race this year in the Big Seven. The inclusion of Oklahoma X nothing new,. but don't underestimate the Buffs. Both have very fine lines, with Colorado not having lost a single lineman off last year's first and second teams. Oklahoma, of course, lost two great ends—Max Boydston and Carl Allison—and center Kurt Burns. Unless some sophomore backi come through, I doubt that either club will have any real flashy backs. But nobody will move the ball consistently against their lines. If the Sooners 1 quarterback, Jim Harris, can go all right on the knee operated on last year, Bud Wilkinson's boys will be awfully hard to beat. Without him, they may have trouble. The line features guards Bo Bolinger. a potential All- American, and Cecil Gray and center Jerry Tubbs. a fullback last year. Colorado has an outstanding tackle i" Sam Salerno, Homer Jenkins steps into the imoprtant tailback post in the single wing.

RICHMOND, Va. l*V—Two winners whose names never will appear on the Scoreboard already have made a deep Impression on the upset-riddled National Amateur Golf Championship. They art Connie and Diane, a couple of hurricanes that dumped tons of wattr on the Country Club ol Virginia's James River course last month and left the greens an enigma to the 300 competitors In the Amateur, which began yesterday. Favorites Fall Form went out tht window. En- champions Charley Coe and Dick Palton and » whole flock of other players who figured to do well wound up on the sidelines. Most of them—even the winners —blamed the greens. In an effortl io bring them around after heavy rains, they had been clipped, rolled and given a top-dressing Just before the tournament. They Were slick and hard for the first round. "You couldn't put a shot up there and have It stick anywheres near the pin." said Jimmy McHale. one of the few favorites who came through. Walker Cup Captain Bill Campbell, another winner, noted the greens on the back nine were taster than those on the front side, and others complained of their inconsistency. 3 Putt Fallen The biggest sufferer probably was Fatten, the colorful, talkative North Carolinian who scrambled his way lo promfnence last year. Erratic always, Billy Joe three- puUed his way out of the tournament, in an extra-hole match after Fights Last Night By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS New York—Isaac Logart.

He won out with an ordinary par 4 on the 13rd hole, where Billy Joe three-putted for the second successive time.

There were a couple of notable victories, of course, and one helped set up what looks like the No. I event in today's 64 second-round Fullmer Decisions Al Andrews OGDEN. Utah UP/—Gene Fullmer was looking for a rated opponent today after slugging his way to a unanimous 10-round decision over Al Andrews of Superior, Wis. Fullmer, fifth-ranking middleweight from West Jordan, Utah, is aiming for a title bout with champion Bobo Olson—as soon as he can get a few more victories under his belt, . ' Cyclone Gene, weighing 159&, to Andrews' 160, swarmed over Andrews from the opening bell and won at least eight rounds. The referee scored it 9 for Fullmer and 1 even. One judge had it 8-0-2 and the other 8-1-1. It was Fullmer's 32nd victory in 33 professional fights. His only loss was to Gil Turner in Brooklyn last winter, but he beat the Philadelphian in a return match. There were no knockdowns, but both fighters were shaken up and both were bleeding.

DAILY — Ph. 3-4453 Baylor Places Accent on Youtk WACO,' Tex. (AP) — Youth is the keynote of the Baylor Bears, who lost their expected No. 1 quarterback with a broken leg two days before fall practice started. Sophomores have a big job to do. Doyle Traylor, (he much sought after passing star of high schools days at Temple, who missed his sophomore season in 1954 with a broken collarbone, is expected to miss at least the first three games of 1955 because of ?, cracked ankle bone. Traylor was to have been the only sophomore member of a Baylor starting team ranked with'the best in the 1955 Southwest Conference ranks. Bobby Jones, No. 2 quarterback on Baylor's third-place finishers of a year ago, has stepped into the No. 1 job, looked sharp in directing an all-letterman No. 1 team in early drills. Center Jimmy Taylor, right guard Dan Miller, right end Henry Oremminger and left halfback Delbert Shofner are the only starters returning from 1954 to a Baylor squad that lists only 10 seniors, 4 of them lettermen. Sophomores are first replacements for five of the starters and there are seven sophomores on the third team. The training 01 quarterbacks' to take up the slack of Taylor's unexpected absence, and the development of reserves for the halfback and tackle positions are the major porblems facing Coach George Sauer and his aides as they prepare for a Sept. 17 season opener against Hardin-Simmons. Sophomore Kenneth Helms of Anson, labelled by Sauer as "farther advanced" than Billy Hooper, the No, 1 quarterback of 1954, was at the same stage of his career has moved into the No. 2 spot whert he is offering t solid challenge to Jones, Both could be overtaken by Jimmy Davenport, tall,, lanky senior letterman just returned after two years of Army service. Injuries have felled Ronnie Guess, junior letterman who was to have resumed his place as Shofner's No.. 1 replacement, and Charles Bradshaw, 6-foot-G, 225- pound sophomore tackle prospect who had been expected to see service. Guess injured a knee in a late summer accident, had an operation and will miss the first two or three games. . Bradshaw sprained an ankle the first day of practice and will be slow rounding into top shape. Sophomore end Merion Fuquay, a 9.7 sprinter in track, was moved to halfback, to try to make up lor Guess' temporary absence. Fred Britton, another sophomore, went from No, 3 right tackle to Bradshaw's expected No. 2 post. A probable starting team for lh» Hardin-Simmons o p e n • r find!
