Vereb, Terps' 'Handy' Back, Accounts For 13 Of 23 IDs By GEORGE BOWEN COLLEGE PARK; Md.—(5V^Jim Tatum of Maryland has come up with the coaching-understatement of the year in nonchalantly calling lalfback Ed Vereb of Maryland "a handy fellow."

' ; Cancelled The football game scheduled for tomorrow at Romney between Gal- latHtet of Washington §nd West Virginia Deaf School h*s been post-j d Maryland squad. Vereb had started the season as ot much more than a handy half- ack. In the first seven games he as scored 11 touchdowns and been ie real backbone of the offense. His 66 points might not be as mpressive if Maryland were a igh scoring outfit, but it isn't in ie: modern ^sense. He also has irown two touchdown'passes to ccount for 13 ; 6f the 23 touch- lowns scored by the whole squad. Tafum Tactic* Changed Vereb might still be just another alfbacfc-as he had been the past wo seasons if coach Tatum wasn't orced to switch tactics this year. 3e lost -the only fullback he thought" worthy of the name when 'om Selep was. put out for the sea- bn on the .first day of fall prac- ice.v--. • •'. . . Since 1951, the fullback has been he-main rushing ball carrier for Maryland. This was one of the in- lovations by Tatum in the Split ? which as devised had the full- iack being primarily a blocker. Since then,'even star Maryland halfbacks such as Ronnie Waller and Chet Hanulak ran no more ban-half a dozen times a game. As a result, the fullbacks — Ed VIodzelewski,. Ralph Felton and )ick Bielski — have been the eading Maryland'ground gainers and scoring leaders in their times. Waller, now a running star of the JDS Angeles Rams in the'National football League, carried the ball inly 66 times in. 10. games last ;eason. Vereb has rushed 72 times already at an average pace of 6.2 •arris. Sets Scoring Record Fred Hamilton and Phil Perlb, he fullbacks converted from half- iack, have carried a total of 57 imes in a swing back to -the old ;tyle split T. Vereb's 66 points are a. new rec- Drd in the Atlantic Coast Conference and a threat to the all-time Maryland scoring high of 97 points set in 1950 by Bob Shemonski, the ast'rea^ running halfback before emphasis turned to the fullback.. Before this year's break in the style change, Vereb's light had dimmed by the presence of Hanu- ak and Waller so he came up to his senior year having been a second team letter winner. The premedical student from Pittsburgh las taken over as the clutch play- :r of the team without question. All season, when Maryland needed yards'for a first down to keep driving it was Vereb called upon by quarterback Frank Tamburello A dramatic example was the LJCLA game, second of'the season With last down on the UCLA 17 Vereb was given the ball and went all the way for the only touchdown and a 7-0 victory. Offense is only part of the 185 pound Vereb's-worth. He has in :lrcepted four passes, returnee seven punts, three kickoffs and caught four forwards. Handy, Tatum calls him. Irish 'Runaway' Near Sellout PHILADELPHIA OF) — About the most interesting.aspect of thft Sat urday's Notre'Dame-Penn football game here figures to' 'be .the at tendance figure. Notre Dame, topped only by fourth ranked Michigan State, and itself ranked sixth .among the na lion's powerhouses, should,be abl be able to "call" its own-.'fi nal score against the hapless Qua kers who now have a 15 game losing streak. Yet, the Penn athletic office an nounced yesterday there are stil 12,000 seats "available" for the.en counter at Franklin Field which seats about 65,000, after remova of some temporary stands.

BY PAT ROBINSON NEW 'YORK (INS) — It was ntirely 'fitting that . the Navy- ^fotre Dame game last Saturday p as a memorial to the late Kriute iockne. • For it was just 25 years ago lab the famous coach insisted that •ie Navy game be the medium of edicating the new Irish stadium. Sfotre Dame won that one, 26 to 2. That was Rockne's last team, or he was to die in a plane crash m Kansas. the following March. Uid that team was one of the best Locknc sver had. It breezec irough the 1930 season undefeated in ten games. In his 13 years of coaching .al is alma mater, Rockne never had losing season. His 'Notre Dame clubs, meeting the strongest in the and, rolled up 105 victories and :ve ties with only 12 defeats. Remarkable Character Rockne was undoubtedly one .0! iie most remarkable 'characters he sports world has produced. He was a scholarly chemist, a wit, an rator of note, a teacher, an ath- ete and a great co'ach, Rockne was horn in Norway anc :ame to this country with his fam ly'when he was five years.old. He grew up in an Irish-Scandinavian leighborhood in Chicago where he earned to play baseball and foot - Once in a free-for-all, somebody jent his nose with a baseball bat a mark that for the rest of his life >vas to make him look like a bat ered pugilist. Rockne worked for four years after graduation from high schoo o earn enough money to go to the Mversity of Illinois. But two o iis friends who, like himself, were rackmen, urged him to go to ^otre Dame. Becomes World Famous That was the start of a career hat was to make him work amous. His roommate was, Gus Dorais, and the pair were to make botball history in a game at Wes 'oint. Notre Dame then was a littl college with an enrollment of onlj 400 and virtually unknown when i ravelled on short rations to mee the Army. But by nightfall the whole coun ry was stunned to read the resul of the game: Notre Dame 35 Army 13. With quarterback Dorai: passing to left, end Rockne^ tb jewildered Army learned for thi irst time the value of an air at tack on the grfdiron. Rockne had a great affection fo all the boys lie coached, but h always seemed to have an espe'c ally soft spot in his heart for th ?our Horsemen — Jim Crowley Harry Stuhldrejier, Don Miller Elmer Layden—and that greates of all Notre Dame players, Georg . Win For Gipper In his last season, Gipp contract ed a sore throat and died a few days later. On his death bed, th story goes, Gipp turned 'to Rockn and said: . . "I've got to go Rock.. It's a 1 right Some time, Rock, when th team is up against it; when thing go wrong and the breaks are bea' ;ng the boys, tell .them to go i there with all they've got and wi one'-just for the Gipper.

Coach Ed Merrick's Spiders, retty much of a flop (1-2-1) in the outhern Conference race, still are position to be the kingmakers the league. Should West Virginia win as ex- ected tonight, Richmond could and the Mountaineers the cohfer- nce championship by defeating avidson tomorrow in Richmond. George Washington should whip 'est Virginia, the'Spiders could nreck the Colonials' chances in ichmond next week. Cats Boast 3-0 Record Despite Richmond's spotty rec- rd, Davidson Coach Bill Dole fig- res the Spiders will be the tough- st team on his Wildcats' light- eight schedule. The 'Cats boast a 3-6 league ecord and if they beat Richmond, ill have only to lick winless Furnan to claim the crown. Dole says even if the Wildcats ome through unbeaten he won't ress the matter of championship ghts. - .;' . - . ' ' "We realize," says the Davidson oach, "that we're not in a class ith West Virginia even if ^we do nd up with a better record inside the conference;" Right now he's preparing the Vildcats for what he. regards as heir most formidable assignment f the year. Passing — the Wild- at strong point — got a polishing esterday at practice. Work On Pass Defense Richmond, naturally enough, orked on its pass defense. Quar- erback Tommy Theodose was ack and apparently ready for full- tune duty. So was halfback George iggs, who's been' injured. West Virginia practiced at night i Washington's Griffith Stadium, he Mountaineers haven't played under lights for nearly two easons and coach Art Lewis lought they needed the ex- erience. George Washington assed up practice because of a ght.rain. Virginia Tech drilled for its oughie against Clemson, the ses- ion ending with a dummy scrim- nage.
