Abo !lrir.s: E. Bnwff 2(7. I.AVAU; (Forfeit) ''Faurot-Miist-Go' > Star ting Despite First Win ST. LOUIS Wi—Petitions seeking the removal of Don Faurot. creator of the split-T formation and football coach at the University of Missouri since 1935, are being circulated in the stale, 'the Post- Dispatch says. . The . petitions,. not bearing the names of their originators, reportedly originated with the school's alumni in Kansas City and St. Joseph in western Missouri and have spread to St. Louis, the news paper said yesterday. .' Faurot is dean of the Big Seven Conference coaches. Missouri defeated Colorado 20-12 Saturday to end a seven gaine losing streak, Ihe longest of any Missouri team under Faurot. At Kansas City, alumni association officials said they knew of no anti-Faurot petitions. Chester L. Brewer Jr., president of the . Kansas City association, said-any such action would be very unofficial. "Nothing is-foreseen.within the next six months," he said. "Don is 54 and sooner or later there will be a change.-But not before the end of the season.".. Under Faurot, also the athletic director, Missouri'has won three conference titles, played in five post season bowl games, while winning 97 games, losing 71 and tying / Major Unbeaten List ' Now Shrinks To Four NEW YORK Wr-The list of the nation's unbeaten, untied .football teams was down to 35 : to- Pday \yith' Maryland, Oklahoma, Michigan'and \Vest..Virginia- the only 'major; elcvdns; in/ file select group.',:•'''.",,-f 1 "! .

He was, of course Clark Griffith owner-president of the Washington Senators, who d ! "d Thursday evening at 85. And in passing, closed except for one paragraph, a memorable chapter in the storj of baseball. Now, only his friend. Mr. Mack :he tall man of Philadelphia, is left. And,, for all the esteem admiration and affection Uiat so many feel for Connie, not even he was the all-around baseball figure that "Griff" was. With Griffith gone, although active almost to the last, a fellow slops lo wonder why baseball, in recent years, did not hold a grea pnrly for him in Washington. 1' was such a "natural." Had such a dinner been held and no man ever could have de served it more, the President, i possible, would have been there Friend Of Presidents For "Griff" was the friend Presidents. I doubt if even Myrt Power coult have answered this question. Anc possibly if she couldn't, it woulc be because I have figurec wrong, but I believe, sitting here a hotel room without a record book of any kind, save memory that Griffith was one of the two major league players who woum up owning a major league club The other one would be Charles A. Comlskey, the "noblest Roman of them all." I'm far from having a John Kicran mind in any other respect but I do sort of have one about things that are "Missouri." Thus, when I was a kid ball fan, I was proud to learn that the "Ok Fox" of the American League pitchers was born in Clear Creek, and that would be one I'd not forget. To bolster memory a bit. when I learned lhat "Griff" was dead. I phoned Al Schacht in his restaurant in N. Y. Whole Life Baseball "His whole life was baseball and the American League." Al told me. "What a joke it was that jeople accused him of being cheap. ;Ie never had big money in his ife and can't have had it when le died. "When the Senators had to have it to keep going, he hocked his life insurance, sold or mortgaged once j little ranch he'd bought out in Montana, and always he kept noving to keep his (cam going, and without even hollering for help. "He must have been the only major league owner of our time vhose door was open to players, •ight down to the bat boy, at any lour of every day. He lived with lis team from the minute he got o his office in the morning until ic went home at nightl- "And he was a liberal man. In J925, the. second year that Bucky •larris'won a pennant for him, he lad the highest priced club, con- ract-wise, in baseball. "In .winning's cham- ilonship in '24, he'd got Ihe money o do that. So,.as.soon as he got t, he put it right back into the am. . • • ' - ' Not Cheap In Any Way "When that sort of money was fortune to him, he turned down $225,000 •' for" Joe Cronin. And vhen Yawkey went to $250,000,. he sold him .only' with the : stipulation that Joe must have a player- niahager .or straight manager's contract- for. five years at $30,000 year. . ,. "He wasn't," 'continued Al, "cheap in any way.. But he wa smart, because he; always wa playing with a small bankroll if a table-stakes game with team like the Yanks and Red Sox am" Tigers. "He used to say lo me," wen on Al, "you never were much o a pitcher, but 1 felt sorry for you. "So 1 told him that maybe wasn't much pitcher but that couldn't sneak up two feel in Iron of the pitching rubber in order ti get over a third strike; and that never gashed the ball on my spike as 7 could stick a finger unde the cover and make it do tricks.' Which was true of "Griff. 1 That's how he? came to be know: as "The Old Fox.' ' But sue things were quite legal in his time if you could get away with them Final .Services Held For Clark Griffith WASHINGTON -UNSI-Funera services for Clark Griffith, an in stitution in baseball' for 70 years will be held today. Last rites for - the 85-year-old president of the Washington Sena tors were conducted at IT a. m (EST) at Washington's • Hamlini Methodist Church. He was buried in Fort Lincoln Cemetery. Baseball's biggest names payee final respects to the "Old Fox' who became a member of thi game's Hall of Fame because o his pitching prowess and went on lo manage and then head the Sena tors. . He became manager in 1912. and an executive eight years later. Among those attending the ser •ices were Charles Comiskey HI whose grandfather and Griffith 'ounded the American League in 1900. Others included George De IVitt of the 'lew York Yankees JIank Greenbcrg of the Cleveland Indians, Clarence Miles of Ihe Bal imore Orioles, Spike Briggs and Bucky Harris of the Detroit Tig ers, Griffith's so'n-in-law Joe Cronn-of the Boston Red Sox. Active pallbearers included o£- 'icials of the Washington Senator club as well as former players Ossie Bluege, Billy Werber, Billy Jurges and George Case, Hundreds of persons viewed Griffith's body over the wekend in funeral parlor filled with flowers rom the baseball figure's friends n all walks, of life. Floral offerings came from Pres- dent, and Mrs. Eisenhower. Ted Villiams, heavyweight boxing ftampion Rocky Marciano, Sen. ind Mrs. Herman Welker and Brace Bcemer—better known as he Lone Ranger—Griffith's favor- te radio character, and many ithers.

Only Maryland, Okla- loma and Michian—all" bound foi .he Orange and Rose bowls. "We'd like to pair Navy with a Southeastern Conference team if at. all possible," Sam Butz,' Gator Jowl selection chairman, :said yes- erday. . . .'Sugar' Litres Middies •Last year, when Navy broke precedent and accepted a bowl bid, lopes were high around here that t would be the Gator Bow\. But he heavy sugar of the Sugar Bowl ook Navy to New Orleans. .With national television assured nnd with a packed stadium Saturday Dec. 31 the Gator Bowl will lay each team well above.$70,000. Vhile that isn't up to" the'Cotton Bowl payoff it is a nice piece of change arid considering other -fac- ors it might be enough. .One of those "other factors" is hat Jacksonville is a Navy town, n • the immediate vicinity are. the Jacksonville Naval Air Station, the aircraft : carrier'turning basin at Vf ayporl, "a big jet base at Cecil 'ield and: the mothball. fleet at Green "Cove • Springs.

Butz said his selection commit- ee also is beaming friendly glances oward Georgia Tech, Kentucky, ilississippi and "Mississippi State A rematch of last year's Sugar Jowl game between Mississippi ant S'avy might be a popular attrac on. But if Navy does go down into outhwest Conference territory to ic Cotton Bowl, Ihe Gator Bow might go to Texas, too, as it did year ago for Baylor. Butz says Texas Christian anc outhern Methodist are very much n the Gator Bowl picture. So is nbeaten West Virginia. Aeschylus Wiiis Laurel Feature, LAUREL, Md.
