"You'lL never convince Norm ' Geatz that his LaSalle High School football team is as bad as its unimpressive record "of. one. win, six losses and ,a .tie indicates. The Explorer mentor freely admits that the players making up the'Blue and Gold squad aren't-on-a par with tlie classy performers who carried LaSalle to a brilliant 8-2 record • last ; year. "But the potential, is there," Geafz declares. "We've worked hard and tried everything possible to bring it out, but we just can't get these boys to realize that they can play football," Norm added. All of LaSalle's losses -have come in a row, and the locals'will be underdogs again tonight when . they entertain Romney at the Stadium.-" The Explorers' last defeat came at Altoona Catholic last Saturday night and Geatz's assertion about the team's potential was borne out in that game, : LaSalle scoring two touchdowns in less than two minutes, ^ .' ••'. [ True, both scores'came as time was .running out and when the Marauders', lineup was filled with reserves, but there have been other .times this season that the ;. Explorers found it tough to move against second-string strength of the opposition..'-.''. •Bill Jordan, sports editor of the .£ Bedford Gazette, saw the Explor- ."• ers battle Bedford to a 13-13 tie in: the opener and asks, "What t happened to LaSalle?" . j '"When they played here, Bedford wasn't too good but even at that LaSalle looked better than a 1-6-1 team," Jordan . declares. . Incidentally, Jordan points oul that Bedford's Mervyn Marshall is the leading scorer in this area. The Bison halfback; a,five-foot, 11-inch 170-pound.' junior, has scored 82 points in ten games on 13 touchdowns and four conversions. The other halfback, Fritzie Tener is second in 'Bedford scoring with 36 points on a half; dozen TDs.~" Bedford, Jordan says, came along very well after'a slow start. Following the LaSalle' tie, the Bisons were shut out G : 0 by Somerset and 13-0 by \Vestmont, but they, closed out in a "blaze of. glory by copping their last six games. Bill .points out. that-the : Bisons jelled -when they ;beat ;: Conemaugh '•"'Township;'; defending district; Glass A champ, in "mid-October. The five victories they posted^ after that were by resounding scores. ' ' *^ ^ The 6-2-2 record' Is .the best for Bedford since 1948.

And if he does, it will be by a hair. Two ingrown hairs, in fact', on the neck of first string quarterback Frank Tamburello. They 'set up an. infection in Tamburello's neck last week .to give Beightol his first' crack at starting against Clemson and kept Tamburello in the hospital most of this-week. If it weren't-for that, Beightol would have the dubious distinction of being the most publicized football player to enter Maryland in the last decade and never start, a game. .-•'•" : Made Varsity' As Freshman About a dozen colleges, including Notre Dame's coach Frank Leahy, sought him after he starred at Fort Hill High in Cumberland, Md. He made the Maryland varsity as a freshman in 1951, scored in'the first game anti went on to play in every game with the undefeated team that beat Tennessee in the Sugar Bowl. •• His fame was so wide spread that Judge Saful S.

Wi-Fight managers Anthony Ferrante and Carmen Graziano were suspended yesterday by the Pennsylvania Athletic Commission, leaving up in the air the future course of their stable of fighters — which includes lightweight champ Wallace (Bud) Smith and middleweight Joey Giardello. The revocation of their licenses was recognized immediately by Chairman Julius Helfand \ of the New York State Athletic Commission and is expected to be backed nationwide by members of the National Boxing Assn. Pennsylvania Commission Chairman' James (Sleepy Jim) Crowley said the commission suspended the two-Philadelphians because it found them: Unfit and incompetent by reasqn of their habits because, of their conduct and'behavior; guilty of unprofessional and. unethical conduct; they had conducted themselves in a manner detrimental to boxing, to - the public interest and general welfare; they, associated with criminals, gamblers and others of ill-repute. • The action follows a hearing last month in Philadelphia in which Graziano and Ferrante were asked to show cause why they should not have their b'censes revoked.
