HAY..COLT*. FOR NFL TITLE OS Rip Browns NEW JACK tiAND Pftii ifttftt YOHK <A£) - Notre Dam«' had itc four Horsemen, fordham Its Seven Blocks of Granite. Now we have the 11 Hangmen of the New York football Giant*. . The 11 Hangmen who form the defensive unit of the Giants, tightened the noose around the neck of Jimmy Brown Sunday afternoon and sprung the trap on Coach Paul Browns. Brown's Cleveland Because of their inspired defensive play and the opportunistic offense of Chuck Conerly, Frank Gifford, Alex Webster and Co., the Giants have won the Eastern Conference title of the National Football League. The 10-0 engineered shutout 6f Cleveland by Conerly's first touchdown of the season—on a lateral from a double /eyerie *» and Pat Summerall's 13th field goal, sent the, Giants Into the championship game next Sunday with the Baltimore Colts. The title game also will be played at Yankee Stadium, scene of the Giants' two exciting games with the Browns. It will be carried on network television (NBC) with New York and a 78-mile area blacked out. The Giants are braced for a furious attack from would-be ticket buyer*, There was no advance sale. Once again it was the grudging defense of the 11 hangmen that thrilled the icy crowd of 61,274. They sang the praises of Conerly, Gifford and Webster, but most of all they roared approval for the 11 hangmen who carried out so expertly the pattern designed by Tom Landry, the defensive coach. The Giants' four-man defensive AUSTIN DAILY HERALD SPORTS Monday, Dec. 22, 1958 AUSTIN (Minn.) HERALD-7 Grid Coach Brennan Fired by Notre Dame SOUTH BEND,,Ind. (AP)-Terry Brennan, Notre Dame's sixth football coach since the death of Knute Rockne in 1931, was fired Sunday night after a five-year record of 32 victories and 18 defeats. No definite reason was given for the dismissal other than the action had been recommended to Rev. .Theodore M. Hesburgh, C.S.C., president of Notre Dame, by the faculty board in control of athletics. Father Hesburgh, who said he accepted the board's recommendation "with great reluctance," eave no indication who Would succeed Brennan. The Associated Press, however, learned that Joe Kuharich, who played for the Irish from 1935-37 and was freshman coach in 1938, Wingers Win, Winona Falls Winona tad Red Wing split a pair of non-conferenet basketball games Saturday night. Coach John Kenney's Winhawks, unable to bounce after losing to Austin, 70-61, dropped a 68-51 deci •ion to La Crosse Central, but Red Wing, Big Nine kingpins last year, turned back undefeated Minneapolis De La Salle, 58-48. Steve Wally tallied 19 for Winona, but he was the only effective scorer u the team lacked hustle and was flat. La Crosse Central led all the way, moving out 14-8 at the quarter and 32-24 a< halftime. Against De La Salle, Red Wing jumped off to a 31-23 halftime leac and coasted home the winner, Dave Feindt and Jerry Wlrth each had 13 points for Red Wing while Mark Bresnahan with 12 and John Andresen with 11 led the Islanders. The defeat snapped a five-game winning string for De La Salle By splitting the non-conference program, it left Big Nine teams with a 12-6 record against outsid crs. Goalie Paces Montreal Win By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS The Montreal Canadiens have a new twist on that old Las Vegas standby — seven come 11. The National Hockey League leaders are bitting the jackpot with goalie Jacques Plante and "11 come 11" Plante posted bis fifth snutou Sunday night as Montreal defeatec Boston 5-0. It was the Canucks ilth game without defeat, during which time Plante has allowet 11 goals. The victory put Montreal 10 points up on second place Detroit which lost to the Chicago Bl»ck Hawks 4-2 Sunday night. Montrea defeated the Hawks 4-1 Saturday The New York Rangers knocked off the Toronto Maple Leafs 5-1 in Sunday's other game. The Leafs played a 2-2 tie with Boston Sat uday to round out the weekenc activity. Plante had 33 saves while NHL scoring leader Bernie Geoffrion scored one goal and added assist.

Kuharich, a native South Bend, is currently head coach of the professional Wash- ngton Redskins with whom he re- ently signed a five-year contract. Kuharich could not be reached or comment but George Preston Marshall, owner of the Redskins, said "I don't know anything about line was tremendous. Andy Robut* telll and Jim Katcavage at the ends and Rosey Orler and Dick (Little Mo;. Modzelewski at the tackles simply wrecked the Cleveland offense. With Sam Huff backing up the middle, taking dead aim at the great Jimmy Brown, and Cliff Livingston and Harland Svare adding their brawn as linebackers, Cleveland made only 24 yards rushing. Jimmy Brown, who set a league record with 1,527 yards in regular season play, was held to eight yards 1ft seven carries. The alert deep defense of Lln- don Crow (he intercepted two), Carl Karilivacz, Jim Patton and Em Tunnell turned in an excellent job when Cleveland's badly rushed passers took to the air. Milt Plum, who was injured in the first half, and Jim Ninowski, completed 10 of 27., But all the defense in the world wouldn't have h'elped the Giants if they hadn't been able to score. The only touchdown was a tricky thing on a frozen field, an 18-yard play late in the first period. Conerly Goes-Over Conerly took the ball from center and handed off to Webster coming around from right halfback. Webster gave it to Gifford, reversing from his left halfback spot. Gifford cut through" the right side of the line to the 10 and then tossed a basketball-type lateral that carried about 15 or 20 yards to Conerly, who went all the way. The Giants' other points came on Summerall's 26-yard field goal, sel up by a 35-yard pass from Conerly to Bob Schnelker. Jimmy Brown simply was de- fensed right out of the ballpark, with Huff his particular tormentor.

(AP Photo- fax) t — >I ought to hear something in the ( morning." Other names which popped up ncluded Frank Leahy, Brennan's redecessor; Bernie Crimmins, ormer Indiana coach and one of Brennan's assistants; Hugh De ore, who coached the Irish in 945 while Leahy was on military eave and has been a Brennan ssistant, and Andy Pilney, Tu- ane's head coach, Brennan, 30, who admitted hav- nf known of his dismissal for a ouple of days, said he did not enow whom his successor would but added "Lean only say it will not be someone at Notre Dame." , Brennan said he is not sure what his plans are but "I'd like to remain in coaching. It all happened so fast, I haven't had time to reflect. I'll think about it for a ouple of days and decide after that." Although he experienced only one losing season, Brennan's stay it Notre Dame was turbulent. After a successful tenure with Mt. Camel High School in Chicago where his teams won an unprecedented three straight city cham- lionships, Brennan went to Notre Dame as freshman coach in 1953. Early in 1954, he was named to succeed Leahy who quit with record of 87-11-9 — second only to Rockne's 105-12-5. Because Brennan was only 25 hen, there was some rumbling mt this died out quickly when Notre Dame finished with a 9-1 record, losing only to Purdue. In 1955, Notre Dame had a respectable 8-2 record. Then came what actually started Brennan's downfall. Notre Dame completed the 1956 season with two victories and eight defeats. The wolves were howling but Brennan bounced back in 1957 with a 7-3 which included victories over Army and Oklahoma. With the entire squad back this year great things were expected. However, the Irish lost to Army, Purdue, Pitt and Iowa and finished with a 6-4 record. Generous With Praise Coach Paul Brown, whose Browns were blanked for the first time, since 1950 and beaten three times by the same team for the first time in any one season, was generous with praise. "You saw a fine team today, men," he said. "It was a tough, hard nosed game. We were just overpowered in the line. They had a full head of steam up. We had to pass and it had to be excellent. We.weren't excellent." Miss Scoring Chance Cleveland's only real threat came in the second half. After recovering Don Maynard's fumble of a punt, they moved to the 4 before the defense ganged up on them. Pushed back to the 16, Plum's pass was intercepted by Huff on the first play of the fourth period. The action became bitter at times. In one flare-up Mel Triplett, the Giants' fullback, was tossed out of the game for throwing * punch or two after an altercation with Don Colo and Don Paul. Pipers Play in Tourney By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Members of Minnesota's small S//m Cage Slate for Big 70 Clubs By JOE MOOSH1L Associated Press Sports Writer Except for play in various holiday tournaments, Big Ten basketball teams will take it relatively easy from now until the conference season opens in less than two weeks. Intersectional competition to date has not changed pre-season estimates which rated Purdue, Northwestern, Michigan State and Indiana as the class teams in the conference. Michigan State is the league's only undefeated team having won four straight including an 80-55 runaway over Nebraska Saturday. Purdue, after losing its opener to Kansas State, has scored five successive victories. The Boilermakers rapped South Dakota 55-44 Saturday. Northwestern suffered its first loss after four wins in losing to j undefeated North Carolina Satur- i day night in the championship congest of the Blue Grass Festival | Tournament 78-64.

The victory moved the Hornets on top of the league standings along with Albert Lea, 20-3 winner over Faribault. In the other league affair, Rochester opened its schedule' with a 2-1 verdict over North Mankato. The Merchants, which defeated Faribault last week, stayed with the Hornets in the first period as they trailed only 1-0 on Tom Brown's goal at 4:33, assisted by Jim Eangowki. Winona then rallied for four goals in the second period and counted five more in the t h i r d. Roger Neitzke led the parade with four, while Brown added three, Ken Meinke two and Jeff Moddock one. Austin's lone gpal, coming at 14:00 in the final period, was tallied by Garth Seavy unassisted. The game was both ragged and rough as 13 penalties were handed out. Bob McAlister of Austin was ordered out of the game for fighting in the second period. All the scoring was completed in the first period as Rochester edged the Vikings. Joe Suchmoel and Jim Anderson counted for the winners and Jim Mattson scored for North Mankato. Albert Lea grabbed a 7-0 lead in the first period against Faribault and added six goals in the second and seven more in t h e third. Archie Nelson led the attack with four, while Paul Westrum, Jerry Earl and Tom Suthers each finished with three. Faribault tallied once in the second period and twice in the third. More S-M Hockey action is slated Tuesday night when Austin hosts Rochester at Kaufman rink at 8, while Albert Lea travels to Owatonna and Winona to Faribault. Follow 8M Hookey gtory By TOM KOECK The Pacell! Shamrocks set the stage for a first place showdown with Winona Cotter in the Rav- oux Conference when they toppled Waseca Sacred Heart, 69-43, Saturday night. The big game will come off Jan. 2 at Winona and the outcome could go a long ways to determine the champion. Cotter, runnerup to Pacelli in the state Catholic tournament last March, has set a brisk pace with five straight conference victories, while the Shamrocks are right behind with four. Before this one comes off, Pacelli will participate in the second annual loyola Invitational tournament at Mankato, which begins Friday. Moving in as defending champs, the Shamrocks face New Ulm Trinity (6-1) in a first round game at 3:30 p.m. Pairings for the Invitational, which will end Sunday, include St. Louis Park Benilde vs. Bethlehem Academy, Faribault, at 1:30 p.m.; Holy Trinity of Rolling stone vs. Waseca Sacred Heart at 7 p.m. and Loyola, the host school, vs. Sleepy Eye St. Mary's at 8;30 p.m. ••••W W ft** IMWtWMVtfcPM 4-i* bltW VtftAJV . . , _- . . team Invitational Tournament atl* a ? n beaten by Oklahoma State Quincy, 111., beginning Saturday 63 ' 59 m ov *rtime and running through Tuesday.

The victory was the 500th for Piper coach Joe Button in his 28 years at the,school. Hamline has lost only 136 games since Hutton took over. Hamline fought until the last 12 minutes before getting a lead that held. The score was knotted 22-22 at the half and at 31-31.

"By the looks of the schedules, I don't think Denver could be a member," Mariucci said, "although this would be a matter for the coaches to agree on." Mariucci said he isn't proposing to reactivate the old league^with all the official trappings. This would require time consuming administrative action, and apparently there isn't time for that to get a league operating this season. The loose alliance Mariucci is backing would be organized mainly to set up a system of standings to spur spectator interest. The standings would help determine the two westers representatives in the annual NCAA hockey tournament, Members of the old WIHL were Minnesota, Michigan and Michigan State of the Big Ten, North Dakota, Denver, Colorado College and Michigan Tech. The withdrawal of the three Big Ten teams broke up the league last spring. too much poise for the!set a career field goal mark of 4,099 by hitting six.

Philadelphia, in last place in the lost its seventh Semifinals will be staged Saturday, while the championship game goes on at 4 p.m. Sunday. Pacelli had little trouble clipping Sacred Heart in a rough and ragged game and built an early 24-6 lead at the quarter to stay out of trouble. Actually, it was all over when the Shamrocks hit their first three shots and until Marty Crowe flood ed the floor with reserves mid way in the final period, the visi tors failed to make much head way. Operating efficiently despite a pressing defense and rough tac tics employed by Sacred Heart the Shamrocks left the floor with a 35-17 spread at intermission ant Gopher Quint and Stanford Play Tonight MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Minnesota's basketball team, a crew o gunners which this year ha formed an embarrassing habit o missing the target, meets Stanfon at Williams Arena tonight in a bi for a season-squaring third vie tory.

The other was against Okla homa when the Gophers slipped t a glacial 24 per cent. With such normally good pile! ers as Tom Benson and Ron Johnson in the lineup Minnesota hadn't expected to have bleak nights Uke that. But against SMU Benson bit only 6 of 23 shots, Ron a more presentable 5 of 15, Dick Bracber 4 of 13 and Paul Lehman and Warren Jeppesen each 2 of 9. Benson was high for the Gophers with 15 points while Johnson was limited to 12. Coach Ozzie Cowles indicated he would keep shuffling his personnel against Stanford in an effort to find a working combination for the conference games. Johnson remains the only immovable fixture in the starting lineup. Minnesota will be facing a Stanford team that is considered one of the best on the west coast.

Game Is Rough Most of the time was spent marching to the free throw line s Sacred Heart retaliated by ushing and holding under the has- ets. Not able to cope with the moother Shamrock quint, the ag- ressive action was the only means Vaseca had to slow down the coring. The Shamrocks finished at 44 per ent as they connected for 25 bas- ets in 56 attempts. They added 9 free throws in 35 chances. Sac- ed Heart hit only 13 of 52 at- fempts to finish at a mediocre 25 per cent and dropped 17 of 35 ree throws. Bob Schottler, who is improving n every game, set the scoring pace for the Irish with 19 points, but he had lots of help. Zender. not only led the rebounding, but 10 added 18, while Scheid, who hit well from outside, contributed 12. Held to 12 Points Dan Kelly, Sacred Heart's lead- ng scorer last year, managed 12 Mints, but he waited until the final half for nine of them. When he was hounded by Meyers, who fouled out in the third, he was limited to a single field goal and free throw. Jerry Anthony was the only, other Waseca player in double figures with 10, while Lavern Szy< szka added nine, including five free throws.' It was the fifth straight victory for the Shamrocks and gives them a 6-1 record against all opponents. Sacred Heart was left with a 2-3 record. x The preliminary game was won by the Shamrock B team, 26-13. paceiu rorrpFXP Z«nder, t 7 44.
