MOHDAT, OOTOBBR W, MM (o*RK.Jf COURIER NEWS PAOB BL1VM THE PAWN Michigan, Mory/om/, Oklahoma Carter Gets Nod for 3rd Championship By HAKRY GRAYSON NEA Sports Editor NEW YORK — (NEA) — Jimmy Carter has turned the once fabled lightweight class into something resembling a food slot in a busy Automat, The thing keeps spinning and new Hems pop out. The world championship has been held by three different individuals other than himself since the championship Carter first I loaned the title to Lauro Salas. a peppery but untalented Los Angeles Mexican, May 14, 1952. Next came Paddy De Marco of Brooklyn and now we have the nonde.-cripl Wallace Bud Smith. Carter, of course, munuged to regain the crown euch time — and will be a heavy favorite to do the samn thing when he meets Smith in another 15-round match at the Cincinnati Gardens, Or!. 19, The 32 - year - old Carter has worked ha'rd at Ehsan's, hard by Summit. N 7 . J.. apparently determined to prove that. his cast 1 at Icnsl three strikes are not out. That, would break hi-; own record for the number of times a world title has been won. CARTER AND HIS m.inaccr of record, Willie Ketchmn. h;ive become a standard objcc; of boxing, writers' gags as the result-of this j situation, which would be highly' extraordinary save in the str;m»e beak busline busine.-? of today. It doesn't take a Phil Silvers to OP funny about a fighter who almost automatically IO?PS when made a 4-1 favorite — and then makes the job appear ridiculously easy in a repent performance. Were it not for television, there would be little need for doing anything literary except writing off ;his fight. But it'= the regular Wednesday night fight of the suds people, so becomes oi national interest. Carter hasn't limited his strange reversals of form to title bouts. He's obtained paydays treating non-title opponents the same way ' — Armand Savoie amonu them. In : the process, he has built up a soft ] touch or two, notably the one with Tommy Collins in Boston. SMITH, A WILLING and hard puncher who had gotten exactly nowhere through the years, managed to outgallop Carter in Boston in April. It was another one of those TV things that meant absolutely nothing at its site, and the good Bean- towners promptly asked that the return be taken as far away as possible. Cincinnati is far enough for New Englanciers. but is it far enough for the Rhinelanders? There is some excuse for the match Cincinnati!, however, inasmuch Smith is defending in his old home town. Ketchum insists there is nothing phony about Carter losing and regaining the title. The manager explains thai his reverses are due to a lack of concern and preparation Carter is excited about this one and if his ices haven't gone back on him. he should be able to handle Smith. Any old or near old-timers . in New York who are interested will *c>u the picture at the Broadway bars of Jack Dempsey. Mickey Walker and Tony Canzoneri. They have a lot of action photos on the walls and when things become ragged on the screen, the members of the old guard will take a look at them just to keep things in proper balance. Jesier Is Not Jesting LARAMIE. Wyo. Wl — Jerry Jester. 145-pound Wyoming tailback, has a chance to break tailback Sonny Jones' school record of 817 yards set in 1949. Jester gained 279 yards in his first three games for the Cowboys this season. Only Three Left at Top After Black Saturday By E0 CORRIGAN The Associated Tress Out of the rubble of fallen giants of college football today there emerged three shining lights — three teams that well could fight it out for the mythical national title. Michigan, Maryland and Oklahoma, all undefeated and all powerful, could go all the way. Yet, even these three are not invulnerable. The Wolverines still have a solid *—— five-game Big Ten schedule to face starting with Minnesota this week". After that, they have Iowa, Illinois, Indiana and Ohio State, any one of which could rise up and whip them. Maryland heads northward this week for a game with fired-up Syracuse, which trounced Army 13-0 Saturday. If the Terps get b; Syracuse, they'll have a clear path. Five Get Lumps Oklahoma, with a streak oi' 23, goes against another undefeated outfit this week—Colorado.' The possibility of another Big Seven team beating Oklahoma seems remote. But then look what happened to Notre Dame, Georgia Tech, Texas Christian, Washington, Rice and Princeton. AH were favored at from one to three touchdowns and all had been undefeated. But when the blackest Saturday of the football season was over, all had tumbled. Notre Dame hadn't even had its goal line crossed until they came upon Michigan State. The Spartans cracked Notre Dame's II- game winning skein and did it emphatically 21-7. Gerry Planutis. the goat of last year's game when he missed two extra points in the Irish's two-point triumph, was the big man for the Spartans this time. He scored one touchdown set up another and kicked three extra points. Georgia Tech, scourge of the Southeastern Conference, dropped a 14-12 decision to Auburn, and its conference lead along: with it. Texas Christian, boasting one of its best teams in years, came a- ropper at the hands of a young Texas A&M team 19-16. SWC Merry Twirl Washington, still at least one of the favorites for the Pacific Coast Conference championship, was beaten by Baylor 13-7. Rice, another Southwest Conference powerhouse, was shut out by Southern Methodist 20-0. This, combined with Arkansas' 27-20 victory over Texas, threw the Southwest Conference race into merry confusion, as usual. Princeton, which shaped up as the class of • the Ivy League couldn't cope with Colgate in a nonleague tussle 15-6. Yale moved to the "front of the loop by nnilins Cornell 34-6. The Princeton-Yale game Nov. 12 could decide it if Princeton gets by Cornell this week. Michigan, the No. I team in this week's Associated Press poll, had to do some pulling and tugging before defeating Northwestern 14-2. Maryland extended its wmnincr streak to 10 over two years by [ turning back North Carolina, while! Oklahoma rolled to a routine .4-6 triumph over Kansas. Packers Tie for First Wit/i £ate Fie/cf Goa/ By ED WII.KS The Associated Press It's been eight years since the Green Bay Packers have had a winning season in the National Football League, but now they're in a three-way deadlock for the Western Conference lead thanks to Fred Cone, who seldom has been spotlighted since coming from th« Clemson campus five years ago.

Pittsburgh snared Philadelphia 13-7 Saturday night to match Cleveland's 3-1 first-place record. Cone Whole Show Cone was practically the whole show at Milwaukee as the Packers gained their 3-1 record.
