Daily News Staff Writer University of Miami chances of gaining a" glorious victory over the favored Florida Gators here Saturday night depend almost solely upon three integrated factors. Thev are: The accuracy of Don James' right arm, the success of Miami's middle linemen in turning back Gator chargers, and the ability of Hurricane pass receivers, particularly Frank McDonald, to catch James throws. This is the consensus of ex perts, which even the rival coaches more or less agree upon. Bob Woodruff, the head Gator, rates James strikes as the principal Miami scoring threat. Andy Gustafson of the U-M says his team will have to connect through the air if it is to make an anticipated homecoming crowd of 65,000 happy. . James, the stocky five-foot, nine quarterback from Massillon, Ohio, has passed brilliantly during portions of his U-M career, viping out three Jack Hackett records in the process. But seldom has he been able to pitch his team to victory over a major rival. In fairness to the courageous little senior, his support "from beefier brethren up front has varied from good to bad and indifferent. . . - McDonald No. 1 Receiver James has more than one capable receiver, but end McDonald, who also holds two school receiving marks, is No. 1. The six-foot, two junior from Nutley, N. J., ranked 12th in-the nation on receptions at one stage of the season and is among the best on maneuvering and hanging on to bullet tosses. While Florida ground defense has been effective, its secondary has been vulnerable to passes. Nine opponents have an overall record of 50 per cent complete against the Gators. They hit 74 of 148 throws for 968 yards. On rushes, Florida foes totaled only 1,336 yards net in 402 plays. The two highest point totals against Florida this fall Kentucky's 26 and 21 by LSU were achieved via aerials. James and the four other seniors on the youthful Miami varsity will have extra incentive if any is needed in their final Hurricane appearance. Artie Knust, second team quarterback, and middle-linemen Ted Lubas, Dan TassoUi and Gene Buccilli join Donald in a five-man captaincy corps against Florida. Throwing And Hoping "We'll pass. We have to." Gustafson said after the next-to-last practice of the season yesterday afternoon. "We'll be doing some throwing and some hoping." Even so, Gus has stressed his JET - WASP SALES A Genuine Hudson Parts VICTOR QUINT SERVICE MGR. HUDSON 0? SOUTH FLORIDA, I HO. Florida's Largest Hudson Distributor 13S? N.W. 36th ST.

Regular backs Gordon 3Ialloy, Bill Smith and Whitey Rouviere will get their shots at the large Gator forwards, and so will such freshmen as Porky Oliver, Don Bosseler, Dan Dorshimer and Rebel Bookman. But if they can't advance, the burden will fall upon James. When right, he is by far the best passer of the quarterback group, which includes Knust, J. B. Johnston and Bob Dekreon. Don's passing was his sharpest of the week in yesterday's light drill. Although the oddsmakers still like Florida by two touchdowns, prospects are for one of the hottest games in the 15-year rivalry of the two universities. Numerous other factors enter into the calculations. Both teams have had losing seasons and earnestly want the finale. The winner will go ahead in the series rivalry, eight games to seven. The Hurricanes, particularly 17 men who were on the 1952 varsity, have not forgotten the merciless 43-6 pounding they took from a powerful - Florida team last year.

LOUISVILLE SLUGGER DATS TUBER'S SPORT SHOP 43 S.E. 1st ST. - - A SERVICE Factory Trained Mechanics J Hi j po NEW ORLEANS iranuse airon Associated Press New Orleans, Nov. 27 The New Orleans Times-. Picayune admitted editorially today that . the Sugar Bowl blasted by sports editors for the first time in history would be a "very good game" but Miami's Orange Bowl would be "the game of the year." The selection of West Vir ginia to face Georgia Tech aroused protests from local sports editors who questioned the Sugar Bowl Committee's choices for the 20th annual game here New Year's Day. "We should settle down to considering the fact that a very good game has been arranged with teams that are a privilege' to watch," the editorial said, v "Luck certainly attented the first casting of this die by the Orange Bowl, for it has the game of the year in Maryland vs. Oklahoma," the newspaper continued. "In the future, some sour matches, from a national prestige standpoint, may attend arbitrary selections of this type. The Sugar Bowl policy remains the best, even if its minority position at present tends to cloak the fact." Bill Keefe, sports editor of the Times-Picayune, wrote in his column yesterday that the majority of football fans believed Coach Bobby Dodd of Georgia Tech refused to accept Texas Tech as an opponent, but "wanted West Virginia and got it." A " few hours later, Hap Glaudi, sports editor of the New Orleans Item, said in his column that the news of the Sugar Bowl selection was "disgraceful" and that when Dodd gave his approval of West Virginia "as a 'worthy' Sugar nD HE SAY r - yr vy - o L 5 ADMITS IT Yeao Bowl opponent; the Mountaineers were home." The criticism, without parallel since the Sugar Bowl's first game in 1935. brought a reply from Dodd in Atlanta that he had absolutely nothing to do with the selection of an opponent, s "I told the Sugar Bowl Committee that anyone they chose satisfactory with us," Dodd added.

Silberman's statements since taking over at Tropical indicate continued success for the Gables course. Cater To, All "We want to cater to all the fans not just those who can afford to bet large sums," Silberman declared. "We will spare no expense in adding conveniences for our patrons to enjoy when they visit Tropical." Silberman and his wife, Lillian, have been regular winter visitors at Tropical during the past five years. He has been an enthusiastic racing booster since his teens.
