Buffs Will Shoot Works In Sooner Tilt Saturday By JEMMY BRESLIN NBA Staff Correspondent Whether Dallas Ward cares to admit it or not, this is a .one-game season for Colorado. . A Turpin Retires, Leaves Door Ajar For West Indian By JOHN FARROW LONDO NW) — Randy Turpin's decision to quit the ring opened tr: door of opportunity today to another British light heavyweight —Trinidad's Yolande Pompey. Turpin, the former world middleweight champion, announced his retirement last night after he was knocked out in the fourth round by Gordon Wallace, an unknown Canadian. Promoter Jack Solomons, who had plans to match Turpin with world light heavyweight champion Archie Moore, made a quick switch and threw his backing to Pompey, a hard puncher. "I am cabling Moore right away with terms for a title defense in London on Jan. 10," said Solomons. "Pompey deserves a break." Pompey knocked out Yvon Durelle, the Canadian light heavyweight champion in two minutes of the seventh round of a scheduled 10 on the same card as the Turpin-Wallace affair. For the 27-year-old Turpin, it was a sad end to a fine career. When he outpointed Sugar Ray Robinson in 1951, he became the first Briton to win the world middleweight title in 60 years. "I am retiring," said Turpin. "My reflexes are not there anymore. When that happens, it is the end. After Turpin won the middleweight title from Robinson, he promptly lost it back to Sugar Ray via a TKO just 64 days later. He got another chance at the title in 1953 but lost on points to Bobo Olson.

Sam Salerno, 225-pound tackle., is the most mentioned lineman, A 21-year-old senior, he could be an All-America prospect, most certainly is one for the professionals. Dick Stapp, 205-pound guard, is another husky reliable. Ward started with 20 monogram winners as linemen. "You have to believe Ward is keeping a sophomore passer, Dick Hyson, under cover," a Rocky Mountain football man points out. "He's the best passer on a team which figures to miss Carroll Hardy, last year's thrower, and Fred minutes Coach Ward's Buffaloes will spend playing Oklahoma at Norman, Saturday. Winning their first three contests, .the Buffs did their utmost to show 'absolutely nothing. 'They have been a real mystery so far," notes Chet Nelson of the Rocky Mountain News. "The team is potentially powerful, yet has been impotent on offense. It is suspected that Ward is building up slowly for the one big effort against Oklahoma." There is good reason to go along with this. Ward arrived at Colorado in 1948, after a term as Minnesota backfield coach, and as he was unpacking his bags the school announced its entrance into the Big Seven. After two rough seasons. Ward's building began to take effect. There is only one team to beat in the the Bernard! very much.

Last season, the Sooners had to score two last period touchdowns to Win, 13-6. In 1953, it took a long sprint with a minute remaining by Merrill Green to break up the game, the Sooners winning, 27-20. Playing at Boulder in '52, Colorado fought to a 21-21 tie. Contrast this to the 55-14 beating the Sooners handed out in '51. This, most seem to believe, is Ward's big chance to break through. He has a deep and experienced line which allowed only one touchdown in its first three contests. Using i t he only pass he tried. Then he was benched." Colorado put in a straight T to supplement its single wing, but has used the formation sparingly. The Buffaloes move best from their new T—which arouses further suspicion as to how Ward is playing this fall Colorado scored twice in the flrsl half against Arizona, played defensive football for the entire second half. At Eugene, they took an early lead, then seemed to pull in Oregon outplayed them throughout the second half. They played it so close to the vest against Kansas that it took a couple of last-period touchdowns to get the 12-0 victory If something happens to the Buffs FARM LOANS Six Star Feature 1.

Duke, Maryland May Both Get to Bowls Br GEORGE BO WEN BALTIMORE (AP) — There's a sneaky feeling around today that if Maryland and Duke continue undefeated through the season both will be made available for bowls and the "idea" will come from other members of their Atlantic Coast Conference. Otherwise, the other six mem- Doris Hart Turns Pro as Teacher Of Tennis at Hotel MIAMI BEACH, Pla. ta- ranks of United States amateur tennis were further thinned today with the announcement that Doris Hart, the nation's No. 1 woman player, had turned professional. Miss Hart, an active amateur for 20 years and winner of all the world's major women's tennis titles, will become a teaching pro at the Flamingo Hotel here. Just a week ago Tony Trabert, the men's amateur champion turned professional at Los Angeles. Miss Hart, who was considered sickly almost from birth, took up the game at Henderson Park in Miami at the age Of 10, after an operation. A hard-driving, fast-serving and net-forcing game carried her to the top. 'While I still love tennis, the strain of competing is getting to be a little too much," she told newsmen. "Besides, there are always the younger players coming up who have the fire J-ou once had." The 30-year-old Doris said she was tire'd of traveling and wanted to quit while she was "still at the top." b«rs will have to vote for either Maryland or Duke to go to the Orange Bowl against the Big Seven champion and the reverberations could rock the new foundations of the conference. Aside from averting choosing up sides with the loser no douJH being offended, some of the other members are reported to be intrested in having two bowl representatives from a financial viewpoint. All members share in the refceipts which from two bowls would run at least $25,000, enough to get a couple of them out of debt. Duke Chosen One of them had such an idea last year when the conference had to choose between Maryland and Duke. But it was felt then the records did not justify such action. Each of the teams had lost twice and tied once. Duke was chosen. According to the talk, undefeated records would make it defensi- ble to let both go. Then the Orange Bowl would be allowed to pick which one because the conference has a contract to supply a member to the Miami show. The other team would be available to bids from the Sugar or Cotton bowls. Such action would require a change in ]#>licy adopted, when the conference was formed in 1953. This is that one team should be selected for one of the bowls approved by the National Collegiate Illini Could Get in Race with Upset Over High-Riding Michigan State CHICAGO (AP) — The mere thought of meeting Michigan State Saturday is worrying Illinois Coach Ray Eliot but a victory would hoist the Illini into the Big Ten title picture. Eliot, speaking to the Chicago football writers via telephone hookup, said, "We're all getting ulcers listening to our scouts." Reports relayed to Eliot, of course, carried the tale of Michigan State's 21-7 victory over Notre Dame, which lifted the Spartans among the nation's top 10. Eliot said he only hopes Illinois can put up a good game at East Lansing but added, "Our boys think they can take 'em." Michigan State and Illinois have identical 3-1 records and are 1-1 in the Big Ten. The similarity is not unusual. Two years ago they| tied for the conference title. j Spartans Favored I Last year the two were picked j cofavorites to repeat but both fin-i ished in the second division. Mich-! igan State, however, is favored j Saturday mainly off its convincing victories over Stanford and Notre Dame. The usually pessimistic Eliot admitted he has been "pleasantly surprised" over Illinois' showing this year. "I didn't think they could do this well but the boys have a lot of spirit and have worked hard," he said. Duffy Daugherty, Michigan State coach, was still bubbling over the Notre Dame triumph but took time out to express concern over Illinois. Campbells Win In Y Football Hornsby Tops .409 Hitters NEW YORK (If]— When it comes to .400, Honrsby stands alone. Of the seven major leaguers who have hit above .400, Hornsby is the only batter to achieve the feat three times. He did it in 1922 with .420 for the St. Louis Browns and in 1924 and 1925' with .424 and .403, respectively, for the St. Louis Cardinals. Ty Cobb and George Sisler hit above'.400 twice. The Campbells scored three TDs in the second half to come from behind and defeat the Bakers by .2412 in "Y" High school touch football play at Little Park yesterday afternoon. The CampelJs scored first after two minutes of play on Tom Lum's 30 yard Jaunt. But their opponents came right back as Jerry Lutz tossed to Captain Baker, who breezed 65 yards. The Bakers went ahead in the second quarter as Lutz faded from his own 15 and tossed to Bill Wyatt the 25, who went all the way to at Norman—even a one-point loss —it must be rated as disastrous a defeat as the school has taken. It is, you see, strictly a one-game season at Colorado. V OF YOU, »<* ~ 'The World's Finest Bourbon Since I79i Worthy of Your Trust for 160 Years...

With less than a minute gone in the second half, Larry Ellis passed to Lum to knot the score, the play going 18 yards. On the ensuing kickoff Baker fumbled and Lum recovered on the 21. Ellis then tossed to Koontz on the 6 and on the next play, threw a bullet over center to Joe Hughes, who lateraled to Lum j who went over standing up. I The last TD came on Hughes' in- j terception of a desperation Lutzi pass, which was downed at midfield and after one first down, Lum whipped to Morrow who was standing in the end zone to make it 24-12. "I'm hoping the boys don't let down because we're going to run into a good Illinois team. We certainly aren't looking past Illinois and we'll have to be at our best," said Daugherty.
