The "Terrific Tcrp" has been the middle man on just about everybody's All-America and got the nod in a majority vote by approximately HO leading football writers, sportscasters and collegiate experts who took par* in The Sporting News poll. Governor's Plan Could RuinGeorgia Powerhouses ATLANTA W1 The Board of Regents meet today to act on Gov. Marvin Griffin's request that ath- ilctic teams of the university sys- J tern of Georgia be prohibited from 'playing opponents who do not (maintain segregation. Robert 0, Arnold, chairman, indicated last night the 15-member board might turn down the gover- .nor's suggestion.

Sports Keg Residue iFor a fellow who is qu'cl and e^sy-going, Norman White makes just about as much noise in the Western Maryland Rifle League as anyone . . . The local straight shooter is always at or near Ihe top so far as individual scores arc concerned and he hits the type writer keys with just as much accuracy as he does the league tar- squad. Could Upset Basketball Approval of Griffin's reques might also damage the status o Tech and the University of Georgi; as national football powers. Am it could upset Tech's 1955-56 bas kctball schedule. Arnold, who has declared him self against the athletic policy sug gested by Griffin, said: "I've talked to a good mariv board members and I'm verj hopeful the whole issue will resolved and the situation wi! quiet down to normal."' Griffin himself said that '"th matter is now squarely up to th Board of Regents and rests solely in their hands'. I have nothing ti add to my communication to tin chairman. I stand on that." Hanged In Oregon Tech students rioted througl downtown Atlanta early Saturday stormed the state capitol, burnct effigies of Griffin and paraded ti the 'governor's mansion. Saturday night students at Mer cer University in Macon, Ga., dem onstrated and hanged the governo n effigy. Early yesterday an effigy o jriffin was found hanging from a ,ree near the faculty club on the University of Oregon campus a Eugene, Ore. At Baton Rouge, La., the South crn Gentlemen's organization a secret pro-segregation society irged Gov. Robert Kennon anc Sugar Bowl officials to prevem -ace mixing in the sports classic George Harris, 21-year-old prcs- dcnt of the Georgia Tech student ody, apologized to Pittsburgh for ?hat he termed Griffin's "umvar- antcd action" and said, "We are ooking forward to seeing vour en- re team and student body at the ugar Bowl." gels In fact, a sports writer could become lazy if he received reports from many news sources the calibre of Norman A Potomac Edison clerk. White turns in typewritten reports of shooting ac lion that are so well prepared that little or no editing is needed . But most 'of all, he understands the importance of deadlines, always turning in his rifle stories in plenty of time to gel them in the paper while they're still news. . Blood transfusions for ailing horses are a common practice . . . The usual horse transfusion involves a gallon of blood from a pony . . . And a breakdown of fractional race times at Hialcah Park shows that the average horse travels at about .53 feet a second, making him one of the fastest of all animals.

C. l/D-The big questions al Wake Forest to day were "are we going to de emphasize football?" and "who will be the new football coach and athlelic director?" In a surprise shakeup, the resignations of Head Football Coach Tom Rogers and Athletic'Director Paddison "Pat" Preston were an- nounccd"by Ihe college Saturday. The announcement came while most sports fans were wondering if Norlli Carolina Coach George Barclay is about to gel Ihe ax and perhaps be succeeded by Jim Tatum of Maryland. None of the principals involved in the Wake Forest shakeup spoke for publication. Dr. Harold Tribble, president of Wake Forest for the past five years, holds the key to the entire picture. He has staled he favors athletics but nevertheless has wielded a strong hand over the school's athletic policy. With the school due to move to its new campus at Winston-Salem, C.. next year, there has been speculation that Dr. Tribble would prefer to put renewed emphasis on academics instead of athlclics.

(AP Photofax) Clevelanders Ride To Title In Brown Otto By JOE BRADJS PITTSBURGH wi—Jubilant Paul Brown said today the big factor in the Cleveland Browns snaring their -sixth straight Eastern divi sion title of the National Footbal League was the return ot veteran quarterback Olio Graham. "But 1 don'l plan lo ask him back again," said Ihe coach o: the defending NFL champion Browns. "He certainly went overboard to come back in a tighi situation and I'm grateful. "Graham was a our winning . the He's one of the players .I've ever big factor in championship finest -footbal coached. I'm sure Otto is rcliring after this season and permanently.

Mi —11 on Alsobrook, a 24 - year - old University of Michigan freshman from Dearborn, has bettered the accepted American record for the 100-yard orthodox breast stroke by almost 10 seconds in winning the event in the preliminaries of the Michigan AAU swimming championships". Alsobrook's time was 1:04.7 for the rarely-swum event. The Amcr-' lean record is 1:14.1 by Cpl. Fred McGuire of the Third Army in 1954. ast season he was quilling pro ootball. But aflcr a poor cxhibi- ion season coach Brown pcr- uacied the veteran quarterback to ome back at least for one more eason. . Following yesterday's game, iraham insisted he is hanging up is spikes for good aflcr Ihe cham- ionship game. He said: "I came back this fall because fell 1 owed a loyally to coach Brown and Ihe Cleveland fans bul 'm gelling loo old and now 1 owe i debt to my wife and family." Sixth Straight Title The Browns clinched their sixlh straight divisional, litle yesterday by whipping the hapless Pittsburgh Stcclcrs 30-7 at Forbes Field. It was their eighth triumph in 11 games \vith one tic. The Browns haven't been beaten for the Eastern title since they came into the National Football Leagijfe. "We started the season poorly," said Brown. "1 was never sure we could do it until we did it. It is a real satisfying thing and I'm grateful." Brown said the acquisition of fullback Ed (Big Mo) Modzelewski from the Stcclcrs was a big help in the championship drive. He also praised Ihe work oC halfbacks Ray Renfro and Fred Morrison and the stellar line-play of Charles Noll, Bob Gain and Abe Gibron. "Everybody on the team gave their best," added Brown, "and that's why'we won. It was all team work. Our defense was a The Browns' opponent in the UUc game will be either the Western division leading Los Angeles Rams or the second place Chicago Bears.

That was the day Otto Graham decided to take one more fling in the Nalional Football League. And today, largely on the strenglh of the .veteran quarterback's efforts, Cleveland owned its sixth straight Eastern Conference title. .. With an assist from the New York Giants, the Browns wrapped up the championship yesterday, one week' before the regular season's close. Giants Scalp Indians While Graham and his mates were pulverizing the hapless burgh Sleelers 30-7 for an 8-2-1 record, .the Giants came from behind to nip second-place Washington 27-20, putting the Redskin's mark for the year at 7-4. • At Ihe moment, the Los Angeles Rams look like the best bet to oppose the Browns in the championship game. However, the outcome of the Western Conference race still is in doubt. The Rams knocked off Baltimore 20-14 yesterday and eliminated the Colts from contention while the -unncr-up Chicago Bears squeezed past the Detroit Lions 21-20. Los Angeles is 7-3-1. and the Bears 7-4. Rams Favored The Rams play Green Bay Sunday and a victory or a tic will ive-them the division litle. The Bears mecl the Philadelphia Eagles in their final game. In other games yesterday, the Eagles trampled the Chicago ;ards 27-3, and the Packers defeated the San Francisco 49crs 28-7. Graham, who "retired" after ast year's victory over Detroit in the playoff, was very much active yesterday. He sneaked 4 yards for one touchdown in the first quarter and then connected on pass-plays of 46 yards to Ray Renfro and 18 yards lo Darrell Brcwstcr for other scores in the second anil Ihird periods. Lou Groza chipped in with .hrcc field goals, the longest from 42 yards out. After the game, Graham again announced his intention to retire. But there seems little doubt that Brown would make another pitch 'for the cause." The charges of Tank Younger, the running of rookie Waller and he passing of Norm Van Brocklin spelled Ihe difference for the }ams, who needed their early lead o hold off a belated Baltimore threat.

Mountain Top downed Fort Hill, 1,138 lo 1.110. in a home contest and Hercules topped LaVale, 1.136 to 520, on the local range.
