Crisler Suggests College Football Players Be Paid Chicago, Nov. 1-(UP)—Athletic Director Fritz Crisler of Michigan came out with some ideas yesterday which may disturb some of the more conservative athletic officials. Crisler says it might no: be a bad idea if college football players were paid regular salaries. The former Michigan coach spoke to the Quarterback Club in Chicago. He admitted there is "some dishonesty" in college toot- ball recruiting. But Crisler adds that "there is dishonesty in politics and business." Says Crisler: "Maybe it's a fir.e thing that we expect the best in college athletics. Maybe we ought to go to a paid player basis. If that would eliminate the cheat- Ing and dishonesty. I'd be for it." Crisler admits there would be some difficulties. "There'd probably have to be ceilings,' he says. "Anl we'd have to compete with the pros." If the colleges did pay all players, • here's what Crisler thinks would happen: "We'd have the greatest centralization football has ever seen," he says. "The institutions with the most money would be at the top, and I presume Lhe game in the little colleges wouid fall by the wiiyside."

Mills has not defended the light heavyweight crown since winning it from Gus Leanevich 15 months ago. That's why NBA brass hats will discuss the Mills case at their an- .hual convention in Miami, Fla., and Havana, Cuba, November 13 to .16. After two days at Miami, the group moves to Havana. The NBA commissioner reveals he has written to the British Boxing Board of Control concerning Mills. Greene hasn't heard from either the board or Mills. But the NBA commissioner says Mills, must make a move by the 13th or the convention will vote the title right out from under him. Says Greene: "If the title is vacated the NBA will hold a tournament to find a new champion." Mills apparently has no immediate plans for defending the 175- pound championship. Mills not only violated his contract to give Los- nevich a return title bout, he nlso has ignored the NBA rule which says a champion must defend his crown every six months if a logical contender is available. That rule also is part of the code of ihe British board. Rabbit Hunting Season Opens Today The rabbit hunting season opens in the state today.

H., Nov. 1—(UP)— Grandma Tad Lucas has arrived at Rockingham Park, N. H., after a plane trip from Texas. And Grandma says she's all set to give her daughter and five other cowgirls a riding lesson' today. The seven girls, including Grandma, are featured in the third race at Rockingham. For the first time since 1941, when the cowgirl race was inaugurated, they'll ride thoroughbreds instead of Western ponies. The distance-has been extended from a half-mile to five furlongs. And, for the first lime, there'll be pari-mutuel betting. The cowgirls arc members of Gene Autry's touring rodeo. All except Grandma Lucas. But she's no newcomer to this game. On!y a few days ago, Grandma hopped out of her kitchen rocker at Fort Worth and traveled some 200 miles for riding competition at Hunts- Vine, Tex. She did so well she decided to give the Rockingham race inother try. Grandma, who's on the shady side of 50, explains it this way: ''Like to make it three times, ah reckon. Won it twice and ah ought to do better on them big horses." Deadline For Signing Property Lists Today Today is the deadline for property owners to sign lists, compiled by the assessors.

(International) High-Scoring Trinity Favored To Keep Unbeaten Slate Intact Yale Faces Strong- Opponent In Brown Eleven (By United Press) Yale and the University of Connecticut hope to snap back into the football win column this week while high-scoring undefeated Trinity will be favored to keep its record clean. The Elis, who last Saturday were overpowered by the Dartmouth Indiana, 34-13, appear to be in for another rugged session. Their next opponent is Brown, which has lost only once this season. The U-Conna and Trinity, however, expect to have things a bit easier. Connecticut will entertain its traditional rival, winless Rhode Island, before a home-coming crowd. The Huskies will be favored, despite the licking they received last week-end at the hands of Kent State.. The high-stepping Hilltoppers, one of, the two unbeaten clubs in w England, also are favored. But their next opponent, Amherst, probably will yield less score than the 55.6 average rolled up against five opponents thus far. Trinity's latest victim was Worcester Tech which this Saturday takes on Coast Guard at New London. The Cadets enjoyed a 35-7 roinp over Lowell Textile Saturday. Weslcyan. boasting a . week-end win over American International, will play host to Williams. The visitors, like the Cardinals, have only a BO-SO record and this game could ?o either way. Othtcr games this week find New Haven Teachers traveling to Montclair, Bridgeport University going f .o Hofstra and Arnold taking on Northeastern at Boston.

Ten so-called major teams lead this parade of unbeaten and untied teams. At the top of the list is Notre Dame, Army and OWahoma, :?ol- 'owed closely by Baylor, Cornell, Fordham, Boston University, California, Virginia and Wyoming. The total of unbeatens Is -emark- ably high for this stage of the season. Only nine teams tumbled from the perfect record ranks over the weekend despite a rash of upsets. And the nation's football coaches agree that defensive play stood out in the top games. Tennessee's Boy Neyland explained his Vol's 35-6 upset of North Carolina by saying; "We just 'topped Charley Justice on stubborn defense play." Neyland adds . No .Player ever lived who couldn't t>e stopped on some day." CarLJ.Snavely of North Carolina*es.
