Smith, held that the IRS didn't give Lehigh proper notice of a tax assessment on the winnings and therefore can't collect. 1 "It's just like it was when I won it," Lehigh said of the court decision. "It will take a couple of weeks to believe it." But he wouldn't say whether he still had all the money or what he would do with what he does have.

Green Bay Favored For NFL Title By JACK HAND Associated Press Sports Writer GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP)-Favored Green Bay puts the one- two- punch of versatile Paul Homung and powerful Jim Taylor against the long-ball passing of the New York Giants Sunday in the National Football League championship game at City Stadium. This will be the first league title game played at Green Bay. About 41,000 fans will brave the northern Wisconsin winter to watch. This is a Small Town—65,000— against Big Town—8 million. The stores here are plastered with signs reading "Title Town U.S.A." Hornung, Taylor and Co. are civic heroes. . The game, scheduled for 1 pjn. —CST—will be carried on network —NBC—television and radio. The ?615,000 paid for TV-radio rights, plus the $400,000 gate receipts at $10 a ticket, add up to a million- dollar proposition. Each player on the winning team should get slightly over $5,000 and each loser more than $3,000. Despite sub-zero temperatures during the week and the remnants of an earlier It-inch snowfall, the field is expected to be green and firm, barring a storm, •during the game. It has been covered for almost a month by a bed of straw and a tarpaulin. The Packers rule as 3^-point favorites because they already have -beaten the Giants once in the regular season, Dec. 3 and once in a preseason exhibition by identical 20-17 score s and because they will be playing at home.
