Leading 10-3 midway in the third period, the Browns drove to the New York 13 behind the great Jimmy Brown—who gained 148 yards in 26 rushes. With fourth down and five to go, Lou (The toe) Groza stepped back to the 2n for his fourth field goal try of the game. He had missed twice, hi once—from the 22. But instead of kicking, Brown had called for a fake. Bobby Freeman took the snap from center jumped up and took off arounc left end. He ran full into Giants 1958 linebacker Harland Svare, who threw him for an eight-yard loss Instead of a reasonably comfort able 13-3 lead, the Browns remained only a touchdown up. The Giants took it from there. Pass for Touchdown After an exchange of kicks and a Milt Plum fumble, the Giants' Frank Gifford fired a 39-yard pass to Rote to the Cleveland 6 on a play Rote called when he spotted a weakness in the Browns' pass defense. A running play lost a yard before Gifford passed to Bob Schnelker in the end zone for a touchdown. Summerall's conversion made it 10-10. Four minutes later, the Giants drove from their 30 to Cleveland's 25. On fourth down, and with 4H minutes remaining, Summerall missed a field goal from the 33. It looked as though the comeback had been nailed, but two minutes later the Browns' Dick Deschaine, soundly rushed by the Giants' defense, got off a wobbly 22-yard kick that went out of bounds on the Cleveland 43. Three passes went awry before Summerall sent his booming field •JOB! soaring through the snow and over the uprights. Two minutes and seven seconds showed on the clock.

"If Bracher can continue hitting like that he'll force the defense to come out of its shell around Ron Johnson," said Assistant Coach Glen Reed. Head Coach Ozzie Cowles, while acknowledging Bracher needs to improve in some departments, added that the Minneapolis guard is "a remarkable shot." Ron Johnson led the Gophers with 17 points against Nebraska and Tom Benson had 14. The Gophers amassed 15 points in the first minutes of the second half, while Nebraska was getting only one. Minnesota led 36 - 30 at the half, but Johnson, Benson and Jerry Butler tallied 12 points to settle the issue. The Cornhuskers didn't score for five minutes and got their first field goal after 6V.> minutes of the second half had •ilapsed. Cowles emptied the bench and 10 Gophers hit the scoring column. | Minnesota led by as much as 24 brought Los Angeles the victory. Wade pitched scoring strikes to Del Shofner and Jon Arnett for 43 and 75 yards. Bears Tally Twice The Bears scored twice in the final quarter against the Lions, who had a 16-7 third period lead. With three minutes remaining, Willie Galimore rambled 36 yards for the clinching TD. The Eagle shutout, first for Washington since 1955, also boosted the Skins into fourth place in the East. Eddie LeBaron, battling for the league's passing title, unofficially clinched it when he shot a 71-yarder to Bill Anderson for a last quarter score. Duncan Joins National Guard IOWA CITY (AP) - All-America quarterback Randy Duncan of towa disclosed Sunday he has joined the National Guard and will report to Fort Leonard Wood, Mo., in mid-February for six weeks of training. Duncan expects to receive his degree from SUI a week before his departure for camp. Duncan was the No. l draft choice in the recent National Football League pro draft and was on 79 completions in 145 attempts. And that's the thing that paid off. "Ill bet you hear some more hollering to change the system," Le Baron said. Le Baron is perfectly satisfied with the system of ranking passers by average gain for toss rather than total yardage. Le Baron connected on 7 of 17 for 164 yards Sunday, including one pass for 71 yards to Bill Anderson. That bomb capped Redskins' 20-0 victory over Philadelphia Eagles. Final official statistics haven't been compiled, but Le Baron's total overhead yardage of 1,365 is likely to be exceeded by all but the the — •—••• * -»«— j «•• ••wM#%**rw n*»t* (i - — — —»— — F ** ^** "»•• WA*W W H 4 1-2 conference record, while Sac- Picked by the Green Bay Pack red Heart has won two and lost ers two.

Knicks Shade Fading Lakers By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS The sizzling Syracuse Nationals certainly are extremists in the National Basketball Assn. The Nats lost eight straight only to take seven victory in a row. The Nats now are within two games of co-leaders Boston and New York in the Eastern Division race after defeating the Detroit Pistons 101-95 in a nationally televised game Sunday. Saturday night, Syracuse turned back the Philadelphia Warriors 115-100. The loss was Philadelphia's fifth straight and eighth in nine games. In Sunday's other game, the New York Knicks moved into a first place tie with the idle Boston Celtics by shading the Minneapolis Lakers 100-99. The Knicks bowed to the St. Louis Hawks, Western leaders, 108-94 in Saturday night game. Larry Costello and Dolph Shayes each netted 23 points as Syracuse broke Detroit's winning streak at four and pushed the runner-up Pistons three games behind St. Louis. A three-point play by Richie Guerin with 57 seconds left gave Lea. The Packers can expect more trouble in this next outing as they play at Winona. Since losing to LaCrosse Logan and Northfield, the Winhawks have won their last three starts, including a 64-59 victory over Red Wing, last year's Big Nine champ, and a 92-68 verdict over Rochester, which was the top scoring effort of the young Big Nine season. Losing to Albert Lea will make Austin's job against the Winhawks tougher. Some of the glitter surrounding the Packers has worn thin and it will take more than the label "defending state champs" to beat Winona. This will be the final test for the Packers until they meet Hibbing in a non-conference game at home, Jan. 3. Pacelli, which edged St. Felix of Wabasha, 60-58, Friday, returns home for a Saturday night test against tough Waseca Sacred Heart. The Shamrocks will be out to improve on a 3-0 Ravoux Conference record and a victory will give them an overall 5-1 mark before they begin defense of their Loyola Invitational tournament title at Mankato, Dec. 26. Sacred -Heart (2-2) tunes up for the Pacelli test Tuesday night when they travel to Winona for a Ravoux Conference game against Cotter. Other Ravoux Conference games Friday find Cotter at Mankato Loyola and St. Felix at Rochester Lourdes. Meanwhile a heavy area high school cage program is on tap. It gets under way tonight when the Albert Lea B team plays at Glenville. One Big Nine team, Owatonna, is involved in Tuesday night's program as they host strong Waseca. In other games, Grand Meadow plays at Wykoff and Lyle at Rose Creek. Friday's Big Nine slate finds Austin at Winona, Albert Lea at Northfield, Owatonna at Mankato and Faribault at Rochester. Mankato tops the title race with a 2-0 j record. Elsewhere, Rose Creek plays at Adams, Elkton at LeRoy, Blooming Prairie at New Richland, Spring Valley at Mabel, and Claremeont at Hayfield.

'Goat' Summerall Turns Hero in Giants' Victory NEW YORK (AP) —Pat Summerall, a pink-cheeked, good na- turned pro football player for the New York Giants, managed to jump from team goat to team hero in the space of six weeks. He's done it with a blunt-edged size 10^4 E kicking shoe, a hunk of black leather that sends footballs spinning toward crossbars in the National Football League. His skill could mean several thousand dollars to each of his teammates. Sunday, in snow-dusted Yankee Stadium, Summerall kicked a 49- yard field goal with two minutes, seven seconds left that beat the Cleveland Browns 13-10. It means the same two teams meet in a playoff for the Eastern title next Sunday. The Giants have won two games outright with Summerall's minute kicks. He also boosted the three* palate- that provided the margin of victory in another. In six weeks, beginning with the Giants' 24-21 upset of previously unbeaten Baltimore, Nov. 9, Sum- merall has kicked nine field goals in 13 attempts. Before that, he'd managed only three in 10 attempts. He'd blown two conversions. "I've been lousy," Summerall said at that time. • The 6-4, 230-pound, 28-year-old veteran only two minutes before had missed a relatively easy attempt from the 33 in Sunday's game. "When I blew it," Summerall said, "I'd have liked to have gone anywhere but back to that bench. But you know, four or five of the £uys came right up and told me to forget it, that they'd get me another chance. "I never thought I'd get to try again," he said. "It's wonderful, wonderful, wonderful. "On the one I missed, I figured it would fade from left a bit to right. It went straight as an arrow. "On tbe last one, I just kicked straight ahead. I knew I had to hit U good since I was at about midfield. I did."
