Big time tennis and golf have had an occaaonrfi standout who was left-handed but the star southpaws in football are a real rarity. Raymond (Buddy) Parker, veleran coach of the Detroit Lions of the National Football League, and H. 0. (Fritz) Crisler, the shrewd athletic director of the University of Michigan, commented on the southpaw scarcity of gridmen recently.

We scout hundreds of j college players each season and it is amazing how few lefthanders! 1919. s you find among them. When you think of all the lefthanded youngsters that play professional baseball it really surprises you there are so few in football. I can't put a finger on any reason for _it." _ Crisler has been a key figure in Big Time collegiate football since 9. ' •'- • 'Through my long years in the Big Ten," the Michigan director told The Sporting News, "I can't recall a standout passer in the conference who threw with his left hand." William Reed, assistant commissioner of the Western Conference, was checked next. "I can't recall our ever having a lop-flight lefthanded passer in the Big Ten," he said. "Outside of Albert the only one I can think of is the late Harry Agganis of Boston University." , TT . Don Liebendorfer, Stanford University publicity director who has been connected -with Pacific Coast Conference play for more than 30 years, was stumped by the query. - . ; "Outside of Albert," he said, "I do not recall a one during my many years in the Coast Conference. I never really gave It much thought, but it is a funny thing." ; . Then The Sporting News'contact-! ed Homer Cooke, director of'the National Collegiate Athletic Bureau, the official statistical organization, who scratched his head trying to think of southpaw gridders. ..,.•, "You've caught "me 'with • my figures down," he - laughed. ; "In contrast/to baseball, • we rrfake no attempt to check whether the.play- ero who figure prominently in our statistics each season are right or ' lefthanded." , The inquiry set one of Cooke s Bears Crush Packers to go all out next Sunday to hang onto it against the Bears, who crushed Green B.ay 52-31 yesterday for their fourth successive victory. The Bears' 4-3 mark, shared by Baltimore, leaves them one game behind Los Angeles' 5-2. The Eastern Conference "race," meanwhile, became more like a Cleveland romp as the Browns, paced by George Ratterman, rallied in the second half for a .24-14 victory over New York and Washington slapped down 'Philadelphia 34-21.

The weekend's action left West Virginia with a 4-0 conference record followed by George Washington and Davidson, tied for second with 3-1 marks. West Virginia, the-nation's No. 7 team and undefeated and untied, battles Pittsburgh Saturday in this week's No. 1 attraction involving a Southern Conference club. A glance at last week's other action: Maryland Given Lead In INS Grid Ratings 4r ' *~* By TONY GALLI NEW YORK—(INS)—Maryland had a long wait but thanks to an assist from Illinois is reigning as -the No. 1 college football team. The Terrapins, with only Clemson and George Washington standing in the way of a perfect 10-0 season, picked up the fallen sceptre when Michigan's six- week rule was ended by Illinois Saturday, 25 to 6. The defeat ended a six-game winning streak for'the pride of the Midwest and sent the Wolverines skidding down the "Top Ten" ladder into third place behind the Terps and Oklahoma. Jim Tatum's Marylanders nosed out the Sooners by one point in the balloting of International News Service's panel of experts. .Their 13-to-O victory over LSU was their eighth of the season and 13th straight win over the last two years. Oklahoma Advances Oklahoma, which owns the only aids, Steve Boda through the files 'I can't come up with much," Boda said. "But here's a southpaw the pid-lirhers will recall. Art Parisicn of the. Notre Dame teams of 1925-26. While he was known primarily for his running rather than his passing,. George McAfee of Duke and the Chicago Bears was a lefthander.". Only three collegians 1 on the 1955 rosters who have gained prominence arc lefthanders. They are Freddie Wy.anl, West Virginia: Don Hollcdcr, the Army quarterback; and Jim Contralto of Southern California. Thai's a mighty slim representation wheti you compare it with baseball. Thirty-seven 'percent of the pitchers on the spring rosters of American League' clubs in 1955 were lefthanders. And three of-the top moundsmen at year's end were southpaws, Whitey Ford and Tommy Byrne of the champion New York Yankees and Billy llocft of the Detroit Tigers. Another lefty, Billy Pierce of the Chicago. White Sox, had the Tank Younger from two yards out. Then San Francisco quarterback Y. A- Tittle, deep in Sari Francisco territory, elected to pass and Los Angeles' Andy Robustelli grabbed it on the 10-yard line for the.touch- down that put the Rams ahead to stay. Except for five intercepted passes and the clock, which halted Bear drives in both halves, Coach George Halas' team was literally unstoppable. They scored 8 out of the 15 times they got the ball, averaging nearly 7.7 yards per play'on their touchdown marches, and never had to punt. Ratterman emerged from the long shadow cast by Otto Graham to lead the Cleveland to victory after the Giants, got off to a 14-3 halftime lead. He passed to Ray Renfro for nne touchdown, to Pete .
