DnJ PA-2-4600 for • WANT AD Taker EVENING TIMES, CUMBERLAND, MD* WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 2, 1955 THIRTEEN/ Terps To Find LSU Rugged And Bruising COLLEGE PARK, Md. tfi Coach Jim Tatum isn't kidding this week* about considering Louisiana . State a dangerous opponent of his No. 1 Maryland football team. In a rare' move, he is holding secret practices. The "closed door" policy adds Jj.veight to an otherwise weekly expression of concern over the op position. Big, Rugged And Bruising Tatum and his staff are convinced,, of LSU's,_ threat to' their undefeated record from reports by Eddie Teague who scouted them. What's equally important to Maryland is that the players are impressed, too. "They're big, rugged and bruising," reported Teague. "They're in a class with UCLA and Baylor (considered to be Maryland's two best victims). • "For the first time this season, they'll outweigh us. In addition, they move fast. Hustle is their most important aspect." This time, Maryland isn't going by the record which on the LSU side shdws only an opening victory over Kentucky. "The only game they were really beaten was Texas A & M, 28-0," states Teague. They tied Rice, lost only 7-0 to Georgia. Tech, 18-14 to Florida and 29-26 to Mississippi. Second-Half Team "Paul Dietzel, the LSU.. coach, has said publicly his purpose is to pour the pressure on in the second half and : that's exactly- what they've done," said Teague. Teague admitted he had issued warnings to the press almost every week about the potential of Maryland's foe. "This time I mean it," he said. Tatum believes him, otherwise he wouldn't go into secret session, evidently to cook up something new. So far this season, he hasn't come out with anything radically different ,arid has been content to coast when he can. Maryland has scored 15 of its 23 touchdowns in the first halves of.its seven games and substitutes have played early and often. UTTLESPORT HORSES DIRECT TO 816 INTER KATWML RACE By Routon Perry Gaining On Ameche In Ground Yards PHILADELPHIA tf) — Joe (Jet) Perry rumbled from sixth to seconc place in the National League ground gaining competition but the defending champion frfim San Francisco has a long way to plow if he expects to catch the flying Alan Ameche of Baltimore.

Perry, who gained 149 yards Sunday for the Forty Niners, has totaled 466 on 84 attempts for an identical 5.5 norm. Howard Ferguson, Green Bay, second a week ago, fell to third with a total 444 yards and a 4.7 average.

SWEEN PAINT & SUPPLY 301 Baltimore Avenue -facing Decatur Phone PA 2-5575 • We Deliver Moore Sure He'll Get Another Title Shot; 'Rocfcy ToU Me 9 ^ *• NEW YORK (&)— Archie Moore is sure he's going to get another shot at heavyweight champion Rocky Marciano next June "because Rocky told me so." "The night of the fight, Rocky told me 'you.deserve Hartack Ends Suspension By Riding Triple .EAUREL, Md. «l — Hartack is back and horse bettors at Laurel have something else to consider in another chance'," said Moore y terday. "I'm going to hold him to his word. •'Who else is he going to fight? That Hurricane Jackson man eliminated himself the other night, losing to Jimmy Slade." Moore was in town to agree to terms for a light heavyweight title defense against Yolande Pompey of Trinidad, at Earl's Court, London, Jan. 10. But all he wanted to talk about was Marciano. Somebody asked if he thought he had been hurt by Referee Harry Kessler's extra counts over Marciano, Sept. 21, after Rocky already was standing up in the second round. "I got a ton of ammunition this high," said Archie, raising his hand up around his chest. "Do you know I can hit the speed bag five times in one second? How many times do you think I coulc have hit Rocky in those three or four extra seconds that Kessler gave him? : •'• No rematch has been signed, as yet. No terms were announced for .the Moore-P o m p e y match, Archie's fifth defense of his 175-pounc crown. It was understood the splil will be 40-20 'With the big share going to the champ along with a probable guarantee. Colts Happy About Bonus Pick In Shaw By NICK ELLENA NEW YORK l/Pl — The Baltimore lolts, who;, astounded the experts >y choosing George Shaw as their jonus pick this year, have no reason to regret their choice, but other National Football League teams lave not been as lucky. - The Colts overlooked such touted stars as All-Americans Ralph Guglielmi, Notre Dame quarterback; Alan (The Horse) Ameche, Wisconsin fullback; Dick Moegle, Rice scatback, and Kurt Burris, Oklahoma center, in favor of the Oregon quarterback. But when the Colts picked, up Ameche as their first regular draft choice, they put to gether a potent rookie punch that las taken them from the Western Conference cellar where they fin- shed last in 1954, to their present tie for the lead with a 3-1 record. The pro football bonus pick was initiated in 1947. The team making he lucky pick, has its. choice among the current college talent, jefore the regular draft selections are made. Each team is limited to one bonus choice for every 12 years, giving each of the 12 teams one chance until the cycle is completed. Weeb Ewbank, Baltimore coach, when asked why he picked Shaw over Guglielmi for instance, de- 'ended his choice, saying, "We think he is the best quarterback available in the country." Shaw had led all collegiate pass- is in 1954 in total offense with 1,536 yards. In the pro ranks this season, he has picked up where he eft off in college, sparking the Colts to three-straight victories be!ore they dropped their first game ;wo weeks ago.

With Willie the jockey aboard, it's hard to decide when to bet his horse and when to lay off. The safest way, although not the road to sudden wealth, seems to be string along with him every time. He came back to Laurel yesterday after sitting out a 10-day penalty and in eight rides had three firsts, one second and one third. Most of the bettors missed two oi his victories at good payoffs of $12.40 and ?11.80, The other was $3.40. : Has 357 Wins The triple boosted his year's total to 357 to keep him well ahead oi Willie Shoemaker, the West Coast jockey who beat him out for most winners the past two years. Hartack and Shoemaker are slated to be riding side by side during the last week of Laurel's meeting. Shoemaker is coming East to ride Darius of England in the International on Nov. 11. Hartack hasn't a mount yet in that race, but Shoemaker plans to ride at Laurel a couple of days before that. Hartack had Laurel racing fans in a dither last spring. They called him "Washday Willie" because he rode 16 winners on the three Mondays of the meeting. Ties Maryland Mark On one of them, he rode six winners out of seven events to tie the record in Maryland horse racing also held by the great Earl Sande and Albert Adams. While Hartack has' his best chance this year to become the leading rider, he also is within range of becoming only the second rider since records of 1895 to be on more than 400 winners. Shoemaker was the first in 1953 with 485. The' 22-year-old Hartack has been riding only since the fall of 1952. Racegoers in that short time have come to call him "Hatrack" and he's a good one to hang a bet on. Last spring at Laurel, a $2 wager on every horse he rode would have netted a profit of $100.

The season opens Saturday. The Warriors shaded defending champion Syracuse by one vote in the annual pre-season poll conducted by the Minneapolis Star.
