Mankato at Roeh«st*r Partbault at Albert I*a If the performance in the opening game means anything, Austin should make a big splash in the Southern Minnesota League hockey race this season. The Merchant team, which finished as runnerup to the Winona Hornets a year ago, turned back Faribault, 17-1, there Wednesday night and it was the most promising debut in years. Never .In .Doubt The outcome was never in doubt once Austin piled up a 5-1 lead at the end of the first quarter. Faribault's lone goal was scored at 18:20 by Leland Larson on an assist from Phil Benjamin, but after that the Eagles failed to give Austin goalie O. Hanson much trouble as he had only nine stops. Gary Claridge, an import from last year's North Mankato team who is now at Austin, sparked the Merchants with four goals and two assists. Dale Beckel was right behind with three goals and two assists, while Jim Sack, Bob Auers, and Paul Laufle each counted twice. The Merchants had nine players scoring goals as they peppered Faribault goalie, Jim Johannsen, who was credited with 56 stops. Single goals were tallied by Bob McAlister, Jim Erickson, Jim Ludwig, and Bob Dahlback. Scwe II Goals Austin tallied eight goals in the big second quarter and added four more in the third period for the lop-sided win. They get a big test Sunday when they travel to Winona for a 3:80 p.m. showdown against the defending champion Hornets. In other opening league teats last night, Albert Lea edged North Mankato, W, and Winona turned back Owatonna, 8-3. Archie Nelson, who was credited with the whining goal in the third period, sparked Albert Lea's attack with two. Albert Lea and the Vikings were tied at 2-2 at the end of tht quarter before Albert Lea made it 4-1 going into the final period. Both teams scored single goal* in the final frame. Scone Hat Tricks Roger Neitzke, veteran Winona winger, turned in the three-goal hat trick, while Jery Koch added two as the Hornets tamed Owatonna. Winona Jumped off 3-0 at the end of the first period and they added four more goals in the second and one in the third. Owatonna scored twice in the second frame and race in the third.

McLean Quits Green Bay; Joins Lions GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP)-Ray (Scooter) McLean resigned Wednesday after a single season as head coach of the Green Bay Packers of the National Football League. Last summer McLean forecast his team had "as good a chance as any" for the league title and declared, "We're going to shoot the moon." The launching never took place and the countdown produced only a 140-1 record and last place in the Western Conference. It was the poorest showing in the 40-year history of the Packers. McLean accepted an offer to become backfield coach of the Detroit Lions under his longtime friend, George Wilson. "It was best for everybody and everything concerned," said McLean. He added, "Nothing would please me mere than to see the Packers come up with t real winner next year." •footer said he received the offer from the Lions Wednesday morning "and I decided to accept it re*l quick.

(AP Photofax) 2-Point Conversion Ruling In Football Gains Support By HUGH FULLERTON JR. Associated Press Sports Writer College football's rules - makers made the first change in 46 years which affected scoring values voted that the rule had achieved its purpose — at least in making the game more entertaining to spectators. The rule adopted by the NCAA a success- when they adopted the somewhat j committee provided that two controversial two-point conversion! points are awarded for last January. Today their action received a strong vote of approval from nearly 200 sports writers and broadcasters replying to the annual Associated Press post-season football questionnaire. • By a margin of about 5-2 the experts favored retaining the rule in its present form, although' a few suggested some changes. And by an even greater margin they ful running or passing play from the three-yard line after a touchdown and only one when the goal is kicked. It was greeted with some scepticism when i t was passed and the professionals, most of the high schools and the National Assn. of Intercollegiate Athletics refused to go along-with it. In the AP poll of sports writers and broadcasters, 133 said the rule should be retained and only Rose Creek, Elkton in Conference Tests Cage Champs Could Tangle at Kentucky 51 voted to abandon it immediate- MUST IMPROVE OR RISK SETBACK Packers at Winoha Friday Packer Mat Team to Host Winona Friday The "hard luck" Austin wrestling team is looking for an early Christmas present Friday when they host Winona at the high school gym. The Packers, coached by Sky Wilcox, will be gunning for their first Big Nine Conference decision when they square off against the Hawks at 3:30 p.m. Since the start of the campaign, Austin defeated Rochester, 28-14, in a non-conference match, battled Stillwater and Albert Lea to draws and lost a 23-22 verdict to Northfield last week. Wilcox and the boys figure It's about time the worm turned and lady luck smiled their way. For one thing, Wilcox will have someone competing In the 95- pound event. In other matches opponents have gained an automatic five points by forfeit. Friday, either Art Averbook or William Anderson will get the call. Other starters include Clayton Houff (103); Dick Brimacomb (112); Tom True (120); Wayne Scott (127); Gene Johnson (133); A general overhauling of both offense and defense has been emphasized this week by Austin coach Ove Berven in preparation for Friday's important Big Nine Conference game at Winona. Disappointed with the mediocre showing of the state defending champions in ft 80-40 upset at Albert Lea, Berven has speeded the practice tempo in an all-out effort to get the Packers in gear for the Winhawk test, which begins at 8 p.m. "Our progress has been disappointing," Berven said today. "Our Two Southland Conference basketball games feature the Austin area cage program Friday. Ten teams get into action for the last time before the break for the Christmas holiday. Rose Creek and Elkton, the defending champion, risk perfect records in Southland attractions. Darold Yost's Rose Creek team, 4-0 against conference rivals and 4-2 against all opponents, plays at Adams, while Ralph Fetter's Elkton club, 3-0 in the conference and 4-1 against all comers, plays at LeRoy. Adams, coached by Art Cahill, will give Rose Creek a strong test. The Tigers boast an overall 4-1 record and the lone setback was against LeRoy in a conference start. Rick Hubbard's LeRoy team hopes to bounce after losing successive starts against Wykoff and Rose Creek. In other games, Blooming Prairie travels to New Richlarid for a Gopher Conference affair, Spring Valley plays at Mabel and Claremont at Hayfield. Jim Poole's Blossoms dropped a 46-42 decision to Wells in their last outing, but played good basketball. They hope to improve on a 3-3 mark. Spring Valley, coached by Dick Knowles, hopes to snap a one- game losing streak as last week they stumbled 58-40 against Hous-: „__ ton. They carry & 2-3 record I have turned the trick, against Mabel. By BOB COOPER LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - Two national champions — the regular season and NCAA kings — could tangle in the Kentucky Invitational Basketball Tournament which opens Friday night. West Virginia, which finished last season at the top of the Associated Press poll and currently is ranked seventh, starts things off in defense of their own tourney crown in a duel with Oklahoma State. Then Kentucky, defending NCAA champ and host of the tourney, meets Ohio State in the nightcap on the first of two evenings of play. West Virginia won last year's tourney with a 75-64 victory over North Carolina when each participating team received more than, $11,750, setting a national record, j Kentucky's current No. 2 national ranking and the Wildcats' affinity for winning on their home floor make them a favorite to win the On the second part of the question — whether the two-pointer had been successful in providing more entertainment for fans and in reducing the number of tie games, 103 said it added to interest but there was an inconclusive 42-26 "yes" vote on eliminating ties. Only 17 said the two-point rule had failed to achieve either purpose. Out of Balance The principal objections to the two-point conversion was that it put the point values of other plays out of balance. Why give two points for three yards when a player gets only six points for a 100-yard run?" asked ;one writer. ! Another suggested: "The goal i posts must be returned to the goal line so that three points are not so relatively more difficult to score than two." Several others concurred about returning the posts to the goal line. "It failed to provide the advertised drama or decide any really big games," said still another. "If it would add anything to the game, the pros would have adopted it long ago." Some other negative comments: "Made a subsidiary part of the game ridiculously over - important." "Two points for a conversion only doubles the value of the most senseless play in football." Want Rule for Preps The experts favoring the rule were quite enthusiastic in most cases and several suggested it should be adopted by pros and high schools. A few thought it should be kept but made more difficult — by spotting the ball as much as ten yards from the goal instead of three. Then there was this somewhat negative comment: "I don't know if it eliminated many ties, but it certainly gave the Monday quarterbacks something new to discuss. now Services Today for Corum NEW YORK (AP) — Funeral j Six of the victories were agains services were planned here today i American college squads. ter (145); Bob Hardy (154); Richard Curtin (165); Larry Diggins (175) and Terry Maus, heavyweight.

(AP) — The United States National Amateur Hockey Team scored three unanswered goals in the second period and coasted to a 5-2 victory over the Fort Frances Canadians in an exhibition game here Wednesday night. Marve Jorde of Thief River Falls, Minn., fired two goals to pace the American team. Gene Grazie, Springfield, Mass., Weldon Olson and Bob Turk of Minneapolis counted one each. Ross Pearson and Sam Fedoruk scored for Fort Frances. The victory gave the touring Nationals an even split of a two- game series against Canadian op position. They lost 2-0 to the Fort William Beavers Tuesday night in Fort William. The Nats held a slight edge in territorial play throughout the contest, forcing Canadians' goalkeeper Harry Barefoot to stop 29 shots. Don Cooper in the U.S. nets blocked 23. Only three penalties were called in the game, played under inter national ice hockey rules. The U.S. team's record stands at seven wins and one loss AUSTIN DAILY HERALD SPORTS 10-AUSTlN (Minn.) HERALD Thursday, Dec. 18, 1958 Austin and Winona in Swim Test Here Edged by a strong Shattuck School team in their last outing, Vern Ojanpa's Austin swimmers hope to turn the tables on Winona Friday in a Big Nine Conference meet at the high school pool. If it's any consolation or prediction, the Winhawks were soundly trounced by the Shattuck team, which nipped the Packers, 44-42, last week. Austin will carry a 1-2 record when they face Winona at 3:30 p.m. They dropped meets to Rochester and Shattuck, but tallied a 67-19 verdict over Stillwater. Winona is without a victory in two starts. Ojanpa expects a close meet, although he figures that if things work out the Packers will win. The Packers have been handicapped in workouts this week with diver Gary Harrison, freestyler Dick Williams and butterfly breast- stroker John Novak on the sick list, but all of them may be avail- able by Friday. Dick Schleicher, a freestyler, will definitely miss this meet. , For the freestyle events, Bill Spahn, Bob Shanklank, Brian Rathke, Russ Maloney, Tom Dormady and Larry Fisher will be available. Glenn Krlck and Fred Wellman will participate in the conventional breaststroke and Dave Marqueson, Howard Nybo and Paul Mickelson in the backstroke. In the butterfly breaststroke it will be Lynn Renville and Jim Matison will handle the diving chores. Winona has strength in the freestyle, but the Packers should have the edge in other events. Austin's 150-yard medley relay team will be out to crack the pool record as they did in last week's meet at Shattuck. This is the final meet for the Packers until Jan. 16 when they swim St. Thomas academy at St. Paul.

Brown may have problems, but team morale, he says, Is not one of them. Asked about the mental attitude of the Cleveland Browns, who are sharpening up their attack for Sunday's do-or-die game against the New York Giants, Brown said: "It's one thing I'm not worried about. "Sure the fellows felt badly about losing," Brown continued, "but they know they played a darn fine football game." , Brown joined the Giants in hoping for a dry field in Yankee Stadium, and his reasoning sounded similar to that of Vince Lombard!, offensive coach for the Giants. "We have more team speed in my opinion so a bad field hurts us more," said Brown. "1 believe the Giants are a shade bigger." Lombard!, on the other hand, told reporters in New York the Giant offense "is built more on quick cuts rather than power. The heavy going was made to order for (Jimmy) Brown with the heavy middle of the Cleveland line." Asked If any major changes are contemplated by the Browns, Coach Brown remarked: "We're certainly not going to panic or go berserk because we lost a football game. We're making adjustments and some changes as we always do."

There is plenty of talent available, but so far the Packers have failed to be consistent. They have looked good at times, but can't teem to maintain an even pace. Berven intends to give his regular unit another opportunity as Jerry Goodwin will be at center, Clayton Reed and John Dean at forwards and Mike Marineau and Tom Kezar at guards. This combination boasts height and experience, but for some reason it has failed to play up to its potential. Others ready to step in are Jim Miller, Tom Berven, Ron Anhorn, Terry Brown, Lyle Cline, Don Bui- ger, and Gary Schumacher. Ready for Packers Winona is waiting for a crack at the state champions. They remember the defeat suffered at the hands of Austin in the regional tournament last year and are eager to square accounts. Coach John Kenney, starting his second season at Winona, has the club rolling and a victory over Austin will put them in a solid spot to grab the Big Nine title. Winona dropped its Big Nine opener to Northfield, but since that time, Kenney's cagers have topp. led Red Wing and Rochester. Against the Rockets they poured in 92 points, top offensive mark of the young season. Use Fast Break Although the Hawks lack the overall height of the Packers, they are big enough to argue under the boards. They use the fast break when the opportunity comes up and have been impressive with their hustle and desire. The club has revealed good scoring balance and the outside shooting has been spectacular. Kenney is pinning hopes for a victory on the ability of the Hawks to hit the net. Winona has five -lettermen back and the tallest is 6-2 center Bill Schultz. Tom Thaldorf, who stands 8-1 and turned his finest game with 31 points against Rochester, will be at forward along with 6-1 Steve Wally, a good floorman and rebounder, Jim Harders (6-0) and Bob Lieberman (5-9) will be in the back court. Lieberman is an excellent marksman from around the free throw circle. Big Nine Teams Busy Elsewhere in the Big Nine, Albert Lea plays at Northfield, Owatonna at Mankato and Faribault at Rochester. Saturday night, Red Wing hosts Minneapolis De La Salle and Winona travels to La Crosse Central for a pair of non- conference games. Oscar Haddorff's Austin Sophomores meet the Winona B team in the preliminary game at 6:45 p.m. The Sophs won three straight before losing 35-28 at Albert Lea.

Giants to Depend on Punting by Chandler By JACK HAND Associated Press Sports Writer NEW YORK (AP)-Who is the New York Giants' best runner? Best passer? Best punter? It is one and the same man — Don Chandler. Chandler carried once this year on a fake punt against Baltimore the Chicago Cubs last season set| and S aine d 15 yards.

But he always has the option from Howell to run on his own if there is a run open. Giant fans were as startled as the Baltimore staff when he faked a punt and ran against the Colts. "I have been kicking a football as long as I can remember," he said. "I don't 65 punts is 44 yards, seconds only to Washington's Sam Baker in the National Football League. remember who just seemed to come natureally. . ."
