(AP) Ernie Davis, the Syracuse All- America halfback, said Friday he considered both the present and the future before agreeing to a professional football contract with the Cleveland Browns. The National Football League team announced Thursday night agreement had been reached with the 215-pound winner of the Heisman Trophy as the nation's outstanding college football player in 1961. The contract calls for $65,000 salary over three years plus a '$15,000 bonus for signing. Davis is drilling here with the East squad for the East-West Shrine charity game in San Francisco Dec. 30. "The Buffalo team in the American Football League offered me more money," Davis said, "but it wasn't enough to offset the other things involved." Among the other things, Itevis said, was consideration of off- season jobs and his future as a football player. Davis, a business economics major at Syracuse, said, "I hope to learn a business during the off- season and step into a good job High School Basketball FRIDAY'S SCORES By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Kokomo 70, Elkhart 60 Eastern (Howard Co.) 64, Oak Hill -43 Noblesville 58.

The last-minute shoppers don't buy their gifts with happiness. There are too many in mourning among them. The churches don't peal with the usual joyous sound of the season. Too many masses for the dead have been said. The rest of Christendom may celebrate. Niteroi must bear the burden of its grief—some 300 persons, half of them children, dead, hundreds more injured. It happened just a week ago. It was a lazy Sunday afternoon and there was a circus in town. Under the billowing bigtop, 2,500 spectators held their breath. The drums rolled. The children froze in their seats. High above the sawdust two trapeze artists in while swung out into space. And somewhere among the sawdust, in the folds of the canvas, in the coils of rope, a small hungry flame took hold. • A scream pierced the applause. And suddenly they all saw it, shooting up the walls, leaping to the guylines, flaring toward the poles. The audience turned into a flailing, churning mass of terrified humanity fighting for life. The only escape was a narrow exit. They all couldn't make it.-In five short minutes Brazil had suffered its gravest disaster, the worst circus fire in history. A week before Christmas. Here in this city of some 175,000 the shock and the sorrow turned to anger when police, announced that the fire was not an accident but the willful act of a roustabout discharged from the circus for laziness. Police caught the man, Dilson Marcelino Alves, 20, He told them he did it for revenge, to get back at the circus owner. Officials described Alves as mentally deficient. For Niteroi, it matters little. The act was done, the sons, the daughters, the husband,.brothers, wives and parents are dead. Smittys TV 33 27 Midwest Platers 31 29 B. F.
