-TWENTY-SIX EVENING TIMES. CUMBEItLANli. MD.i THURSDAY, ^0ClWEK;20,;•i^55 ;•^y/;;, > ;• PA-2.<.600^(or a WANT AD Taker • Shepherd College in Shepherd: lown, W. Va., is apparently hea( cd for the best football season i the eastern panhandle school's his tory. Any doubts of this coul be erased ! >y probably askin members of Potomac State Co legc following last week's 33-0 rou at the horns of the powerful Rams • This Saturday evening at Jame Wood High School Field in Win Chester, Va., the Mams put thei undefeated and unscored upo record up against Davis and Elk Iris ...College. Tlie game will b sponsored by the Wlnchcstc Chamber of Commerce and a rec ofd .turnout is expected for th clash. ' "Nobody who wllj aitend the ' game should be disappointed • as", the Rams arc making na• • iional news for both the tiny West Virginia town and the school with iheir mighty grid~ iron showing. .{<in rolling toward what is hopei to be a perfect year, the Ram have riddled Fairmont, 24-0 Bfidgewater, Va., 24-0, and Polo mac Stale. Coach Don Fuoss i undoubtedly dreaming, althoUg cautiously,- of Ihe Rams' bigges year. '•-The Rams rate sixth in tht nation on loial defense, according (b Alan B. Dates of Winchester y.a., in a letter to this departmen this-morning. They are in lop s'liape for the Senators who have rejoined the football fraternily this season following a lapse o the sport for several years. -'Only, starting tackle "Merty' Boyd, a former Handley High standout, will miss the game because of an^ injury. v Several area griddcrs are ".the big guns in the Shep- .hcrd attack. George licit, .'tabbed "Red Hot" by his teammates, -is running like wild out of the halfback slot. •Hotl, who did his high school playing for Ihe Moorefield eleven of coach Johnny Paugh severa years back, .has seven touchdowns arid is one of Ihe hopes for the Rams loward winning the West Virginia Jntercollegiale football title. • Also in Shepherd's lineup will be veteran Barney Tucker of Fort Hill who docs his damage lo the opposition from fullback. Tucker starred for the Sentinels in 194' and '48. He just came back to Shedherd from a tour in the Army and will be finishing his collegiate career this season. Dick Widdows, former Allegany handyman back in the 1951 campaign, holds down right end position for Shepherd and got a touchdown last week against Potomac State, going 34 yards on a pass reception. Roy Comer, another area performer, is set for duty as a.reserve in the backfield and also handles Ihe exlra-point assignments. According to the latest statistics from the tt'VIAC, Shcp- . herd is pacing the loop with a ? 223.0 rushing average and in total offense with a lofty 344.5 niark. The Kanis are tnps in passing with 22 of 3S finding the range for a 57.9 record. The heaves have been worth an average of I2I.5 yards per tilt, Rood for second in the conference. Be there no doubt about it, Ihe Rams are rarin 1 lo go and all eyes in Ihe districl will be cast Iheir way. For a look-see at the eastern panhandle eleven, the trip to Winchester appears well worth while. The Mystery Of 'Mo' Followers of the Pittsburgh Ste'elers in this area who have been wondering "wha 1 hoppen" when former University of Maryland fullback Ed "Mighty Mo" Modzelewski got his walking papers from the Steelers lo the world champion Cleveland Browns can now have the answer. The mystery of hnw the Steelers let a good, young fullback like Modzelewsk! gel away from llicm in the "deal that was a steal" was cleared up Monday by Paul Brown, Cleveland coach, after ho watched the one-time Maryland fullback spearhead his team's offense in its 24-14 victory over the Redskins. Mo, Brown said, hadn't shown much witli the Steelers in training camp after his two- year liilch In the Air Force and the Pittsburgh management got in touch with him to Inquire if the Browns were interested in the player. "He had a back injury, which they told me about," Brown said, "and I was interested enough to take a look at him. What could I lose? I liked what'I saw. They said they would lake Marion Motley for him—they wanted more prelection for their passer—so we made the deal." . II was rumored early in the summer that' Mo was unhappy with the Steelers, but the 6-foot, 210-pounder had been a No. 1 draft choice and nobody dreamed Coach Wall Kiesling' would lei him .go in an even-up trade for a veteran like Motley, who is well over the hill. But Brown vows it was player for player, no future draft ..choice, no cash involved.

The.charges of coach Fred "Tack" Clark will collide with the runnerup Jackets in one of Ihe Iwo important battles on the Friday slate. Ridgeley's surprising Hawks still very much in the running for Sheir first title since tying Keyser in 1948, will invade Romney in the other clash.
