The winners started things going ttieir way soon after the opening fcickoff. After a Sudbury fumble Central could not move the ball and Sudbury took over on the Central 30. They drove straight down lor the TD, Barry Hughes going over from the six-inch mark. In the second quarter, Lynn Hearn skirted end for 4 yards and another Sudbury telly, giving them a 12-0 lead at halftime. Central took the second half kickoff, after two penalties had caused Sudbury to kick from their 30, and scored with startling suddenness as Jon Bruton tossed to Vic Stilwell, who caught it on the Sudbury 30 after Hughes had batted it, squirm- ed away from two tacklers and went all the way. Late in the third quarter, Gary Lendennie went 12 yards for the third Green TD and quarterback- Nate Austin sneaked the extra point to make it 19-6.

Mitchell carried only 10 times but gained n3 yards and scored on a 84-yard run that sealed previously undefeated Michigan's fate. SAVE UP TO 40% on Auto Insurance ITATI FARM AffMt FRED T.

The commissioner had no way of foreseeing it, when he drew up the schedule long before the season, but he's got the Los Angeles Rams, Western Conference leaders, down to play Chicago's rampaging Bears next Sunday. The Rams, sparked by a new backfield combination, rallied in the second half to defeat San Francisco 27-14 yesterday and hold their confer- postpone your cele- brut ion until the hunt is over, says the National Rifle Association of America. Boxing Briefs Saxton, Jones In Week's Top Boxing Show By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Danny Giovanelli, fighting his second main event in eight days, is a throwback to the era when a neighborhood favorke might "top" his hometown club program every week. It took a break in the card for Giovanelli to get his chance. Danny was available when a cut lip forced Chico Vejar to withdraw from tonight's scheduled .date with Danny Jo Perez at St. Nicholas Arena in New York.

But they'll .have to go all out next Sunday to hang onto it against the Bears, who crushed Green Bay 52-31 yesterday for their fourth successive victory. The Bears' 4-3 mark, shared by Baltimore, leaves them one game behind Los Angeles' 5-2. Browns Romp The Eastern Conference "race," meanwhile, became more like a Cleveland romp as the Browns, paced by George Raterman, rallied in the second half for a 24-14 victory over New York and Washington slapped down Philadelphia 34-21.

Baltimore fell out of a Western Conference first-place tie with Los Angeles Saturday night as Detroit hung up its first victory of the year by a 24-14 count. With his team trailing 14-3 at the half, Ram Coach Sid Gillman gambled by sending out a backfield that included both 226-pound Tank Younger and Larry Morris, a converted, 210-pound line'meter. The beef trust paid off by grinding out a 93-yard march good for a touchdown, scored by Younger from two yards out. Then San Francisco quarterback Y. A. Tittle, deep in San Francisco territory, elected to pass and Los Angeles' Andy RobustelH grabbed It on the 10-yard line tor the touchdown that put the Rams ahead to stay. Bears Unstoppable Except for five .intercepted passes and the clock, which halted Bear drives in both halves, Coach George Halas' team was literally unstoppable. They scored 8 out of the 15 times they got the ball, averaging nearly 1.1, yards per play on their touchdown marches, and never had to punt. Ratterman emerged from the long shadow cast by Otto Graham to lead the Cleveland to victory after the Giants got off to a H-3 half time lead. He passed to Ray Renfro for one touchdown, to Pete Brewster for the score that put! Cleveland ahead and wrapped it up with a touchdown of his own on a four-yard jaunt around end.

(AP) — It would appear that the best way for Great Britain to gain possession of the Ryder Cup golf trophy must be on some sort of lend-lease deal. The United States today has the gold cup for another two years, winning it for the eighth time in the biennial b?H!e yesterday, eight matches to four.

Johnny Thomson of Springfield, Mass., was second, Ge.orge Amick of Los Angeles third, Andy Linden of Indianapolis fourth and Pat O'Connor of North Vernon, Ind., fifth.

Witnesses said his right front axle folded. Was to Have Retired The tragedy occurred wifii McGrath only 14 laps away from the end oi' his dirt track career. He had said the Bobby Ball would be his last dirt track race and that he was going to quit racing to enter business next January, with the stipulation that he would drive in the 1956 Indianapolis 500-miler.
