FOURTEEN EVENING .TIMES, CUMBERLAND, MD-, WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 9, 1955. Dial PA-2-4600 for t WANT AD Taktr, Clemson Big Threat To Mary land's Bid For Orange Bowl • ' C_-^ • •/ • • •. • • ^~ > ^' .-'.../;' ' " ' - .J Both Teams End Play In Coast Loop Tigers Haven't Scored On Terps In Grid Series By KEN ALYTA CLEMSON, S.C. W) — Maryland and Duke were the names mos mentioned as Atlantic Coast Con ference Orange Bowl represents tives two months ago when the teams were preparing for the sea son. Now, with the campaign nearing an end, a third team, Clemson finds itself in position to grab the honors. All Frank Howard's trou blesome Tigers have to do to fur ther their cause is knock off Maryland, the nation's No. 2 team, here Saturday. Each has won three conference games in a row and closes its ACC season Saturday. A Clemson vie tory and another good perform arice next week against powerhouse Auburn, No. 12 in the nation would boost the bowl chances of the Tigers considerably. Duke, winner of its only conference start, could tie'the Clemson- Maryland winner at 4-0 by winning its three remaining league games but one-sided losses to Pitt and Georgia Tech and the. fact that the Blue Devils had the bowl trip last January probably '. would influence conference members to give the honors this time to another team Glemson has been beaten only once, 21-7, by'Rice, which has lost four straight since upending the .Tigers. Tigers Never Won Clenison has never beaten Mary land in their brief series. The Ti gers haven't even scratched out a point in losing to Maryland's defensive geniuses the last three years.. However, last year's game at College Park, Md., was one of the weirdest in conference history. Maryland won, 16-0, but was se verely pasted" from a statistics standpoint, particularly, in the last half. . Clemson led in first downs, 18-8, and in yards rushing, 267 to 144. Each team completed three passes for 58 yards. Two big plays broke Clemson's back, despite its statistical superiority. Maryland halfback Ronnie Waller sped 56 and 61 yards for first- half touchdowns and fullback Dick Bielski booted a field goal in the last period. Both have graduated, but the unbeaten Terps have continued to roll,. winning eight in a row this season. Finest Backfields This year Howard has one of his finest backfields and an ag- ressive hard-charging line, a combination that may well supply the formula for beating Maryland. Clemson leads the conference in total offense and Maryland is second. Those positions are reversed in total defense. Maryland halfback Ed Vereb lias gained 506 yards rushing in 83 carries to lead the ACC in total yardage. The next two men are Clemson 195-pounders,.: halfback Joel Wells with 463 yards and fullback Billy O'Dell with 462. Also in the top 10 in the conference is 200-pound Tiger halfback Joe Pagliei, who has netted 317 yards, but rushed only 51 times, for a handsome 6.2 average. Two Quarterbacks Howard will try to trump Maryland's quarterback ace Frank Tamburello, with two expert signal callers of his own, senior Don King and junior Charlie Bussey. King raced 23 yards for one touchdown and Bussey and Wells clicked on a 60-yard touchdown pass in the waning minutes last week to stop Virginia Tech, 21-16. 1 One of Clemson's largest crowds, an overflow homecoming day gathering of some 25,000 is expected to watch the fireworks. Terps Have Chance For Offensive. Lend GREENSBORO, N.C. Lfl—Mary- land's mighty Terps. who have led Atlantic Coast Conference team defense for almost the entire season, now have a chance to move in as the offensive leader if they can hold Clemson and roll up substantial yardage against the Tigers Saturday at Clemson. In total offense, Maryland is second to Clemson, 278.7 yards to 305.6, latest ACC Service Bureau figures show. The Terps are third in rushing offense with a 194.9 yard average to Clemson's 210.1 and Duke's 207.7. By a reverse process, Clemson could at least make a substantial gain toward overtaking Maryland in the defensive race. The Tigers are second .to Maryland in total defense, 206 yards to 168.1, and second in rushing defense 121.6 yards to 66.6. Clemson once again tops pass defense with an average aerial yield of only 70.1 yards per game, and Wake Forest remains the unchallenged passing offense leader with ]2? yards a game through the air. Outdoor Matches End In Shutouts • All three matches- In the Outdoor Club Bowling League at the Savoy ended in shutouts, Antelopes defeating Moose, Rams tripping Elks and Caribou topping Deer. Individual leaders were Rny Lelghty, 203, 504, Antelope; Car! Grabowski, 175—456, Moose; Bill Wagner, 201-^39,. Rams; Eddie McConnell, MS—421, Elks; Bcrnic Gehauf, 165—47», Caribou, and John Kclsq, l?fi—468, Deer. FORT HILL CO-CAPTAINS—Halfback Jimmy Crawford (left) and end Ronald Shaffer (right) will lead Fort.Hill High's football team in the big Thanksgiving Day battle with Allegany. Crawford and Shaffer were elected by their teammates this week as honorary leaders for the season. Coach Bill Hahn picks his captains for every game during the season up until the holiday clash. Crawford, an All-City honorable mention last season, and Shaffer are seniors. 708- Yard Run Against Irish Earns Riepl 'Star of Week' NEW YORK (INS)—He never started in a varsity game before, his team is winless since October of 1953 but Pennsylvania halfback -Frank Riepl is college foot- Marylaiid Star Certain Terps Will Be No. 1 COLLEGE PARK, Md. WI-Bob Pellegrini, the most taken-for- granted University of Maryland football player, applies the same ball's Player of the Week. • International News Service's grid experts today singled out Riepl's performance against Notre Dame Saturday as more "dynamic and inspiring than even the standout jobs turned in by such stars as Em Lindbeck, Abe Woodson and Bob Mitchell of Illinois, Ronnie Knox of UCLA, Howard Cassady of Ohio State, Eddie Vincent'of Iowa and dozens more. The experts also singled out these VBest of the.Week" performances: Game of the Week—Illinois' 25:o-6 upset' of top-ranked and unbeaten Michigan. Coach of the Week — Lynn (Pappy) Waldorf, California. Play of the Week—A fake handoff by College of Pacific quarterback Junior Reynosa which the officials ruled a three-yard.gain for lalfback Tom Perry, who didn't lave the ball. ' Here's, the evidence considered by the panel of 'East-West Shrine •jame scouts Bernie Bierman. Andy Kerr and Francis J. Powers: sporlscasler Harry AVismer. TiSiS columnist Bob Considine and INS sports editor John Harrington. Player of the Week Riepl, ah 18-year-old sophomore from South River, N. J., who had nudged veteran Neil Hyland out of the starting lineup, pushed Penn into the lead for the first time in seven straight defeats this season when he scored a touchdown in the first -19 seconds against the Irish. The 5-foot-ll, 168-pound indus- rial relations major thrilled a Franklin Field throng of 45,226 and a six-state regional television audience with the longest runback.of the season, taking Paul Hornung's opening kickoff and legging' it 108 yards to a touchdown with key slocks by Charley McKinney at he 15, Bob Eichelberger at the 30 and Stan Chaplin al the 40. Riepl also gave the valiant Quakers their only other score in the contest, which was tied at a surprising solved 14-all itself at the into a half but re- 46-lo-14 win 'or Notre Dame. He passed 12 yards to Bob Barber ond period, kicked in the' see- both extra matter team's of fact chances attitude to his to be national joints and hit so hard on defense .hat he caused two Irish fumbles. Game Of The Week Illinois, which had lost half its six games before Michigan, gave i8,968 fans at Champaign a-ringside view of the day's biggest upset. Ern Lindbcck's 25-yard pass o Bob Desenfants scored the first ouchdown and the winning tally came in the third quarter on a fake icld goal try which certainly was he best play of any normal week. With Dick Miller going through the motions on the Wolverine 24. Lindbeck handed to Abe Woodson, who romped all the way. ... Coach Of The Week Pappy Waldorf has a good won- ost record as records go with 168 victories against 84 losses over the past 29 years. Bu' he has had a 'athcr lean year with only two victories in seven games up to Saturday. Just a week after he was hanged n effigy from a tree on the Berke- ey campus, Pappy was making his I critics look ridiculous by guiding he Bears to a stunning 20-to-6 up-j set of powerful Washington. Play Of The Week Quarterback Reynosn, whose COP team lost to UCLA by a S4- o-O score, neatly faked a handoff .0 halfback Tom Perry. Rcfc*ce Joe Vigna was so sure Perry had t that when the Bruins piled up he halfback Vigna blew hisi vhistlc. The, ball, meanwhile, was sailing downficld from Reynosa to Roger; (Continued on Page 15) champion. Asked how he felt today about losing the No. 1 spot to Oklahoma, Pellegrini piped up in his surprisingly liigh-pitched voice: "Oh, they don't pick the national champ until after the bowl games, so we aren't worried now".'" He was surprised to hear, that normally the final vote is taken after the end of the regular sear son. He made no bones about taking it for granted that Maryland would go to the Orange Bowl and prove its superiority there against Okla- liome, regardless of custom. This same approach to the game of football makes him one of the most unusual star linemen in the game. Unusual, in that he was shifted from guard to center between seasons and before even playing a game was tabbed as one of the best. He lived up to all forecasts so well that the usual reaction to weekly leadership of Maryland has led to a "so what did you expect" reaction. However, except for his established ferocity on defense there was no real reason to assume he could become an offensive center as easy as turning a hair. Freedom of movement is restricted and there's a lot more to do with getting the ball back to quarterback and looking for a block than playing guard. But Pellegrini has done it so as to draw raves from every opposing coach of Maryland without exception. Personally, he still goes for the freedom of defense for which he calls the signals and which have brought Maryland the best rushing defense in the country, a 66.9-yard average. "I had a lot of trouble, I thought, blocking last week LSU center played because the so far back and was stunting," he said. "However, when I looked at the game movies. I found out I didn't do'so badly." • , His coaches never complain, however. Coacli Jim Tatum used to go nuts (Continued on Page 16) Ameche Still Leading Pro Grid League Baltimore Star Heading Loop's Ground Gainers PHILADELPHIA (J)—The unpredictable National Football League has been predictable in one phase of this crazy quilt 1955 season- in statistics. Almost from the start of the season, Baltimore's Alan Ameche and Cleveland's Otto Graham have topped the league's ground gainers and passers respectively. The two are tops again this week in their specialties. Ameche, former Wisconsin great, slowed up somewhat, as the Colts lost to the Lions Saturday night. He gained only 32 yards to make sis top ground gaining total 667 yards on 129 attempts. Howard Ferguson of Green Bay, third a week ago, jumped back into second place with a 564 yard total. Joe Perry, the 1955 ground gaining dng, fell from second to third as he added 20 yards to make his total 486. Graham Hits Five Graham was bottled up a bit by the New York Giants, but completed five of 10 passes before he sat down for the day. His average is a gaudy 9.20 yards per pass on 51 completions for 91 attempts good [or 837 yards and four touchdowns. San Francisco's Y. A. Tittle held on to the No. 2 spot with 79 for 158. 1,277 yards gained and 10 tds. Tittle is averaging 8.08 per pass. Ed Brown of the Chicago Bears moved into third on a 7.95 average. Brown has completed 53 of 99 for 787 yards and three tds. In other departments: Harlon Hill of the Bears, 5 Billy Wilson, San Francisco, and Pete Pihos of the Philadelphia Eagles are tied for pass receiving honors each with 32. Janowicz Top Scorer Vic Janowicz, Washington, is the leading scorer for the fifth straight week with 59 points on five tDs, 7 conversions and four field goals. Norman Van Brocklin of Los Angeles retained his punting leadership with a 43.9 per boot average. Leon Riley of Detroit heads the punt return experts with a 10.1 per carry average. Philadelphia's Jerry Norton moved into first place among kickoff return experts with a 36,3 average. Willard Sherman of the Rams is RICHMOND, Va. tft-Six more botball players -have been nom- nated for All-America considera ion by the Southern Conference regional screening board. The six include quarterback Tommy Theodose of Richmond, halfback Dickie Beard, end Grover lones and guard Jim Locke, all if Virginia Tech, and halfback Budgie Broome and freshman ackle Pete Davidson, both of The itadel. They were nominated af- er outstanding performances in ast weekend's action. Captain Dickie Beard of Virginia Tech is a former high school great at Cumberland, Md. Beard needs just seven yards Saturday when Virginia Tech plays ast - improving North 'Carolina itate to boost his collegiate groiind- ;aining total to 1,500 yards. Dickie is '• averaging almost foui 'ards per carry, with 273 yards ;ained in the 'eight games played bus far this season. Last season, Jeard gained 647' yards to lead he Southern "Conference ground; ;ainers. . '.•'•'! One of the greatest running; jacks in Tech history, Beard was hampered by a leg injury' this; year, but .his latest two appear-; ances were his best for the season.! le picked up a total of 107 yards against George Washington and Clemson, averaging nearly five yards ~a carry. Theodose drew the most praise rom the nominators. He raced 95 •ards with an intercepted pass'for ; touchdown, passed for another and used his aerials to lead the drive for a third tally in Richmond's 19-0 conference triumph aver Davidson. The board also continued to shower praise on tackle Bruce Josley, quarterback Freddy Wyant and halfback Bobby Moss, all if West Virginia's sixth-rated, un- jeaten and untied Mountaineers. ,Ioss was particularly outstanding n West Virginia's 13-7 victory last week over George Washington.

I might lose a lot of sleep dreaming up a weakness, but I don't know of any." With .the exception of fullback Bobby Grier, Pitt is expected to be in good physical condition. Halfback Ralph Jelic has replaced Grier as the starting fullback. Jelic has averaged 4.2 yards a crack hi Pitt's eight games.

BALTLMORE-(INS) — Clyde Y., Morris, secretary-treasurer of thej Baltimore Orioles and law partner of outgoing president Clarence W. Miles, resigned today from his ball club job. ! Morris, like Miles, who resigned Monday, gave the pressure of other business as his reason for stepping out. f Both resignations become' effec- ,,tive November 18, when the club ,|holds its- annual stockholders! meeting. • Meanwhile, Sports Editor Rodger Pippen of the Baltimore News- Post quoted a member of the Orioles' board of, directors, whose name he did not reveal, as predicting general manager Paul Richards will have his powers restricted somewhat in the reorganization of the front office. .Pippen said Richards no longer- will have a free hand in -player deals. Commissioner Ford Frick fined Richards $2,500 and the .club $2,000 last September for a bonus rule violation, and Pippen said the commissioner's office still is investigating other alleged irregular- tes in Richards' signing of young players.
