A spokesman for the Browns said that while the club understood Davenport had signed with Winnipeg and Brown intended to play professional baseball, "we will take our chances." The 12 NFL clubs didn't miss any of the top flight college stars' of 1955 and they came up with many surprises from the smaller schools, whose unheralded players frequently prove to be the real "sleepers" of the draft. A significant bit of drafting was done by the Los Angeles Hams, who took 16 backfield men in the first 16 rounds. Coach Sid Gillman said there was B lack of capable linemen in this year's college crop, but judging from the choices of other teams, there was plenty of disagreement with him on that point.

New York—Bill Fuller, -Arkan 'Wrong Way' End Way Offsides LEXINGTON, Va. (IP) — William A. (Bill) Chipley, Washington and Lee University's new head football coach, still takes a lot of kidding over his "wrong way" incident back in 1946. As a. star end for W. & L., Chipley got into the wrong huddle against West Virginia. The game was played on a rain-soaked, muddy field at Charleston, W.Va. . Bill turned up in the West Virginia, huddle after a series of rough plays. He,was confused more than ever when -the Mountaineer quarterback called play "94-X." "I don't know any such ptey," Chipley blurted out. jp Somebody scraped the mffd off Bill's face and sent him back to W.&L/S side of the scrimmage line SWC Action By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS The Rice Owls, whose early- season jet-propulsion performance fizzled when loop play started, face a big test this weekend in the Southwest Conference basketball race. The Owls who have lost to both Southern Methodist and Arkansas for a 3-2 conference record, are going- to have to beat Baylor Saturday night at Waco' if they arc to remain a serious contender'for the loop crown. The Baylor Bears, despite a mediocre season record and a 1-2 conference mark, are no pushovers. And they should be at peak strength Saturday night with the recovery of Jerry Mallett *hp because of a sprained right hand missed two Bear games and has been used sparingly in other games. The Owls-Bear tilt highlights a weekend of conference activity which sees the Texas Aggies (2-3) playing Sam Houston State in a non-conference game tonight and then meeting Texas Christian (1-2) Saturday night at College Station. The conference's top teams—Arkansas (4-0) and Southern Methodist (3-0) are idle for the rest of the week as is Texas, which brings up the rear rank in conference play with an unexciting 0-4 record.

Fisherman's Bait Six Centuries Old DANA POINT, Calif. Wl — The bait worked jusU fine — even though it was six centuries old. Dr. Richard T. Street displayed four fish to prove it. The bait? A jar full of grasshoppers found embedded in the ice of a glacier in Montana. They were se"nt to Dr. Street by some friends who are members of the American Assn. for the Advancement of Science. They dug them out of. the glacier and say the .bugs, must have been caught in the ice when trapped in a downdraft. Dr. Street, an ardent fisherman, tried them as bait more or less as a joke. His success proves fish don't know the difference between fresh bait and stale. Read Courier News Classified Ads sas tackle and Bev Buller, Kansas quarterback. Los Angeles—Dick Pouts, Mis souri end.
