Once the final period got under way, Ove Berven changed his defense to man to man and the Rocket attack suddenly cooled off. Some close ball hawking and rebounding enabled Austin to slow the Rochester offense to a crawl Get Share of Rebounds Despite Austin's height advant age, Rochester made a good show^ ing on the boards to cop their share of rebounds. This was especially true in the third quarter when it was evident the Packers at times were out of position. Rochester fired at a cool 27 per cent, notching 19 baskets in 70 attempts. The Packers made 22 in 68 chances for 32 per cent, and beld a 13-7 advantage on the free throw line. Seventeen fouls were called on the Rockets, who were willing to mix it up under the nets, while the Packers escaped By BOB MYERS Associated Press Sports Writer LOS ANGELES (AP)-Youthful, unheralded Don Jordan of Los Angeles today reigned as the new welterweight champion of the world. Jordan won a stunning upset Friday night over Virgil Akins of St. Louis, a veteran many astute boxing people felt would give the Californian a horrible beating. But it was the other way around as the two clashed at the Olympic Auditorium before 7,344 fans and a national television audience hi Akins' first defense of the crown won last June. The decision was unanimous, by a substantial mar-, gin. Jordan, 24, a 3-1 underdog, got off to an early lead and never relinquished it. He never was in serious trouble and wound up giving the 30-year-old champ a bad beating. Referee Lee Grossman under California's 10-point per round system gave it to Jordan 145-138; Judge Mushy Callahan had it| 145-132 and Judge Tommy Hart 146-136. There were no knockdowns but Akins survived a hectic bombardment in the 10th round. Jordan, the boxer, also proved to be Jordan the hitter, and equal to Akins in rough-housing and brawling, which was the main offense of the Honey-Bear last night. Jordan came up with a bad cut over the left eye — he said it was from a butt — and Akins' DON JORDAN right eye was slashed and eventually reduced to a swollen mess in the 10th round. Akins has a contract for a rematch within 60 days. The rematch may be delayed while both Akins weighed 145 & and Jordan 145. Jordan was lightly regarded despite his ranking as the No. 1 contender. He gained it by whipping Isaac Logart and Gasper Ortega. Akins was the solid choice off his smashing knockouts over Tony De Marco and Vince Martinez the past year in his remarkable climb to the heights of the 147-pound division. Tankers Defeat Stillwater 67-79 Cleveland Guns for Pro Title By JIM KENSIL Associated Press Sports Writer In 1949 Steve Van Buren, a tank on cleats, set a National Football League rushing record for the Philadelphia Eagles.

Things Looking Up The Packers, who must learn to play together, appeared ragged at times, but the manner in which they turned off the Rocket threat and went on to win, indicates things are looking up. It was the first conference start for the Packer club, which is riding a three-game win string this season.

It was the first loss in three starts for Hal Cuff's Blue Devils, tallowing victories over Owatonna Pillsbury and Waldorf College. Free throws played a big part in the scoring as the contest was both fast and rough. Packer Mat Team Gains 24-24 Tie Austin and Stillwater battled to a 24-24 draw in a non-conference wrestling match Friday at the high school gym. Terry Maus' 11-0 decision over Stillwater's Larry Asmus in the heavyweight match, which was good for three points, enabled the Packers to gain a tie. Twice Maus came within a shade of pinning Asmus, which would have given the Packers a clear- cut victory. As it was, Asmus was content to lose the match, but he managed to escape a pin. It was Larry Diggins' pin in the 175-pound match that moved the Packers into contention. Trailing 16-24 at that point, Diggins needed only 1:32 in a brilliant burst of wrestling skill to flatten Ron Duncan of Stillwater. the Blue Devils by only two field goals, 25 to 23, they picked up Sunday at Los Angeles.

Browns Need Help Philadelphia fans haven't had a conference championship since, but they can witness the clinching of one Sunday if the right things happen in the right places. The places are, of course, Philadelphia, where the Eagles entertain the Browns, and Detroit where the world championship flag now flies. The Lions already have been stripped of their Western Conference title, but they can have a lot to say about who wins the Eastern crown. Sunday they play the New York Giants (7-3) and a Lion victory combined with victory by Cleveland (8-2) can wrap up the Browns' eighth conference title in nine years. The Brown-Lion victory combination would send Cleveland against Baltimore for world championship at Cleveland Dec. 28. Seeks Pass Records The Colts, with Baltimore's first conference flag already in ithe bag, sent uncanny Johnny While the Hilltoppers outscored Unites, their star quarterback, By BILL R1EMERMAN HOPKINS, Minn. - Blazing down the stretch in an explosive finish, the Pacelli Shamrocks Friday night downed the Blake Hill- toppers 57-48 at the Blake gym. Starting their stretch drive six points behind and with six minutes to go, Marty Crowe's boys scored 17 points while the Hilltoppers cashed in one bucket. Little Larry Scheid started the spurt and carried the load of the come-from-behind drive by converting two free throws and hit-, jting a drive-in basket to pull the juiYirdM U i'.iilliiio 2 Shamrocks within two points. Gary Maschka then chipped In with a free throw and Leon Zender hit a long bucket tot the first PacelU lead since the middle of the second quarter. Bob Schottler then added a free throw for a two point Irish spread before Chock Dever scored the lonesome Blake bucket, of the last six minutes, to tie the score. RAVOUX CONFERENCE W. I/.

Austin was charged with 27 fouls and lost regular guard Roger Booher in the early minutes of the fourth period, while DML committed 20 fouls and lost forward Ron Hauer. The Hilltoppers led all the way strikes in 23 league games, and a pass for a touchdown Sunday would crack the record held by Cecil Isbell of the 1941-42 Green Bay Packers.

Off to Bad Start Scheld had a bad start in the game both defensively and often-' sively, so that Crowe decided tfl bench him for most of the second quarter, The scrappy little all-state guard started the second half and showed his class by dropping 16 points and shining on defense. Defensive lapses, which allowed Blake several fast break baskets and two sneak-away field goals, hampered Pacelli. The Shamrocks were down 15-11 at the end of the first quarter and 2-28 at the half with only Zender's sharp-shooting avoiding disaster. Pacelli also went into tha inal quarter three points behind. Divide Point Honors Zender and Scheid split scoring honors for Pacelli with 18 point*. apiece and Schottler added 13. The Hilltoppers had their scor- ng distributed among all eight men who played, with Bob Holton, a gifted guard, netting 2 points and Chuck Dever 10.
