MON1UT, NOVEMBER 21, 1958 (ARK.) OWRTER NEW» PACT «tVWC BETWEEN WU NME * •« Alan Araeche What's happened to democracy on the professional gridiron? . . . where a four-team minority blocks the National Football League's efforts to get rid of "dirty football" ... by insisting on retention of the rule that lets a runner bounce up after he's been down . . . and invites pile-on tackling ... It takes 10 of 12 votes for a change . . . With all the big guns Navy hag played this year — Notre Dame, Pitt. Duke, ct al — the best lineman he's seen, says Coach Eddie Erdelatz, Is a guard you vever heard of — William and Mary's Lou Corbett . . . His Baltimore males have promoted Alan (The Horse) Ameche, their rookie ground pacer . , . call him "The Mule" now . . . Ameche's big surprise in pro ball has been his ability to go wide — die pros didn't think he had the speed . . . just like they didn't think another rookie sensation, the Bears' Rick Casares, was fast enough to play offense , . . and all he's got is the league's best ground-Gaining average and longest run from scrimmage (81 yards) . . . If you're wondering why the Cleveland Browns ever traded Bert Rechichar, one of the finest defensive hacks around, it's because Maestro Paul didn't like Bert's one-time interest in baseball —* he still holds an amazing Tri-State league record of five assists in one game for an outfielder ... Red Blaik doesn't waste any time studying the results of a Saturday afternoon ... by seven o'clock the same evening he's got the game films already developed and his assistants huddled far into the night . . . Red still thinks the pros are fat and lazy tone of his assistants, a pro aficionado, can't get time off on Sunday to hike down to New York to watch the Giants t . . . When Pat McKnight, the SMU Mustang now playing for New York, recovered a goal, line fumble the other Sunday, Coach Jim HoM-ell got so worked up he rushed over to plant a kiss on Pat's dirt- crusted chrek . . . "Look out, Coach," Pat backed off, "I still got my plastic mask on." • * * Early Hot Stove yarn: Cholly Dressen has his troubles with the Senator Spanish-speaking contingent, particularly Cuban character Carlos Paula . . . this day Carlos was parked on third with the potential winning run, one out and the batter hits a long, long fly to center . . . you could crawl home from third . . . but Carlos wants to beat the gun . . , Cholly, to make sure he tags up after the ball is caught, yells, "Go back! Go back!" . . . "He 'go back' all right," muses Dressen, "only he stays right there and won't budge, and I'm screaming my head off." . . . Minnesota is loaded with transfer quarterbacks sitting out a year of ineligibillty ... a pair from inactivated Fordham added to prize catch Bobby Cox of Washington, spending the fall as a radio spotter. li's been four seasons since the University of San Francisco played football, but what a representation that last 1951 Don team has in the NFL ... the ChiCards' Ollie Matson, football's greatest running threat; the ChiBears' quarterback phenom, Ed Brown; Gino Marchetti of the Colts, who's developed into the toughest defensive end in the game; tackle Bob St. Clair, an all-pro power on the 49ers; and Ralph Thomas, Red Stephens and Joe Scuciero, all Redskin regulars, and coached, of course, by Joe Kuharich — also of the '51 USP team . . . Behind Red Sanders' success at UCLA is his thorough exploitation of the junior college transfer system . . . including an alleged farm learn just 20 minutes from the campus in Los Angeles Valley JC . . . Between you'n'me, the danger spot in pro basketball is. of all places, Minneapolis, with the greatest record of success, but now in the throes of apathy — financially and artistically . . . Casares' Run Set Fire Under Bears in Halas Last Year By JIMMY BFESUN ' NBA Staff Correspondent Losers of their first three National Football League games, the Chicago Bears were in deep trouble on Oct. 16. The lame Bruins lound themselves in a 3-3 second period tie with the Baltimore Colts. The Colts had won the first meeting between the teams and, riding high, were making motions to win this one.. The Bears came out of the huddle on their own 19 and tried a wide play with Rick Casares. the recruit from Florida, doing the carrying. Texas, Rebels Head Porkers' Opponents Team FAYETTEVILLE — A defeated University of Texas team obviously impressed the Arkansas Razorbacks more than any other foe in the 1955 season—at least that's the verdict reflected in an All-Opponents team vote taken in is week. The Longhorns grabbed four positions on the starting eleven—followed by the Rebels of Ole Miss with three, and one each for Texas A&M, Southern Methodist. Texas Christian and Baylor. Only Rice among conference _ teams failed to make the team. The poll is taken at this time every year in order that the ballots may be sent in for the Players All-America team and consequently never include any team's last game. Only two players earned the unanimous vote of all 25 Porker players voting—both ends—Henry Gremminger of Baylor and Menan Schriewer of Texas. Ole Miss' great guard. Buddy Alliston, lacked a vote of getting unanimity. The complete team is as follows. End Gremminger Baylor End Schriewer Texas Tackle Tackle Guard Guard Center Q'rtertaack Halfback Halfback Fullback SMU Texas A&M Mississippi Texas Texas Mississippi Texas Christian Texas Mississippi Casares was shaken loose and began a scrambling 81-yard run which seemed to ignite both Wrigley Field's 40,000 customers and the Bears. Bears, "They acted like high school kids when Casares went over," Don Kellett, the Coil's general manager, recalls. "Veterans were jumping up and down and grabbing Casares. They haven't been the same team j since that play." ' * " I From that point, the Bears mov- I ed to a victory over the Colts and | then racked up six straight, putting j themselves squarely in the middle; of a Western Conference race in! which they were all but out. i What is, football people ask, ihe j reason lor this turnabout? j KeUeti, team beat the j stumblinji Bears in the season's op-1 cner— and then watched them catch ; fire litter—puts it squarely on the; coaehint,'. f '•Wu uere in Chicago to play the 1 Cardinals in an exhibition game before the chanuponship season started, and all you read in the paper.-;' wits that the Bears had it," he .«ays. i "I think ihe players got to believ- j ing it. and they played that way. "Rut alter those lirst three losses, Geon>e Mains stepped in. This is his last year as a coach, but he's still more than thai in name. He pulled the club together. Everybody knew it was win or else.'' From those strirt morning practice sessions at Wrigley Held has come a team effort which threatens to give the one-time Monsters oi the Midway their first champion- si tip since 1946.. "Spirit," Halas .says, "is our big gun. This is u. professional team with college spirit. We have 33 men and every one of them puts out. I .start to single out a star and I wind up naming the whole team. The defensive line has been fine. Felloes like George Connor and Bill George play like kids. BUI Wight- kin at tackle on offense has been wonderful." The Bears' ofiense has gotten a lot of punch from Ed Brown, who arrived as a top quarterback this year. Casares and John Hoffman have been sure-gain bail-carriers. The same for Bobby Waikiiis, He was the least publicized back on lasi year's Ohio State Rose Bowl champions, hut he as been a ground- ycbblmg- \\orkhorse for the Bears. This spirit business isn't just talk. When the Bears' defensive platoon, for example, comes off the field the usual business of finding a seat or hitting the water bucket doesn't take place. Instead, the offensive team, before taking the field, makes sure to give the tacklers a resounding .slap on the shoulder pads and yell encouragement. This is George Halas' last year as a coach. And the guy who has meant more to the money game than anybody else might win a championship with a dose of old-fashioned amateur spirit. Spartans No. 2 In Big 10, But Ranked at Top By JOE MOOSH1L CHICAGO (AP) — The Big Ten is sending its second nonchampionship team to the Rose Bowl this season but Michigan State's second-place Spartans are regarded as the strongest team in the conference.

Ohio State, paced by Howard Cassady, blasted Michigan 17-0, dropping the Wolves into third place and .squashing their Rose Bo\Vl hopes. It \\'&s OSU's second straight Big Ten championship.

Du Mont will telecast. The only other second-place Biff Ten team to go to the Rof Bowl was Northwestern, which whipped California 20-14, in 1949. Ohio State was not eligible &u year because of the rule against repeaters. The Bucks beat Southern California 20-7 last January. Michigan Slate's foe Jan. 2 will be UCLA.
