Nuff Said! By Stark ft Todays iss Eagles CD Conerly (Sties May By Gene Ward It looks as thouph old Chuck Conerly may have given his all for Mara Tech on Sunday. The 39-year-old pitchin' man, who broke all the rules of NFL quarterbacking by twice running the ball to get position for the winning field goal, came out of the photo-finish triumph so bruised and beaten he couldn sleep all night. OS Cd C3 JiUi JfTsL WORRIES 'MM fr Joe Bellino, Navy senior halfback who set an Academy one-game record Saturday when he scored four touchdowns against Virginia, yesterday was named to the Eastern College Athletic Conference All-East team for the second time this season. Bellino also gained 198 yards in IT tries from scrimmage, including runs of 39 and 90 yards, for an Academy season ground-gaining mark of 749 yards. liOWO IS Ili'Il (NEWS foto by Se.raiour Wally) Bub Lowe of Brown (far left) relaxes after rapturing 1C4A crosscountry rare at Van Cortlandt Park with his three closest pursuers: Larrie Seet.

As a result Dr. rancis Sweeney, club physi cian, was dubious concerning Chuck chances of going against the division-leading Eagles in the Stadium on Sunday. HE HAS ORDERED Conerly to report to St. Elizabeth Hos pital today for an examination of the knee and a thorough phy. sical.

Also ordered in for treatment are offensive tackle Rosy Brown with a bad shoul der, which could be a strain, and linebacker Cliff Livingston. who took a crushing blow on the chest from a cleated Pitt brogan There are other cripples, too tackle Frank ouso, with a split to-the-bone finger; guard Darrell Dess. hobbling on double charley horses, and roome end Bob simms who re-injured the ankle he hurt airainst the 49ers in the season's opener. But these minor casual ties all are expected to regain combat status by Sunday If Diw Sweeney is concerned about Conerly.

Mrs. Chuck is downright worried according to what she told those who checked on the state of the quarterback's health. She said her hubby was hurtin' so he didn't get a wink of slep: that' she hates even to think about him playing in the next one coming up. WHETHER OR NOT Conerly re-injured the flipper, which forced him out earlier in the cam paign, wasn't known. Sweeney fact, onlv saw Conerly im mediately after the game when he put a protective splint on the damaged left knee in the hope it would immobilize the joint and prevent fluid from collecting.

If the worst happens, George Shaw better start warming up in the bullpen. Actually, as the doctor in formed the Giant coaching staff, there's no way of telling for an other 4 hours just how serious toneriys condition is. As Sweeney put it. it will take time before he can dignose what is Iresh injury and what is just p.ain battle fatigue in Chuck's gams. A I.LI SHERMAN, the Giant offensive coach, was one of the few wno realized Conerly's condi tion at the windup.

The knee injury was suffered on the second play before the wmnmr kick when Chuck carried the ball into the iine. He had run the ball twice for 12 and 17 yards just before that, the vital plays which moved the pigskin into position for the field goal. In his summation of the game, head coach Jim Lee Howell said that he and his staff felt the Steelers had gone all-out in their scouting of the Giants against the Browns the Sunday before.

The boss coach lauded the blocking of Less and Jack Stroud, the two guards who do a lot of pulling for interference running. There was one bit of good news to go with the casualty report.

C0)A( George Kastment, suspicious of the fast clockings in recent years, had surveyed the course and it measured ISO yards short. The Spartans had a lock on the individual title for the past five seasons via two triumphs by Henry Kennedy and three by his brother, Crawford.

Michigan State also had captured the team crown for the past four seasons but Penn State ran off with the title yesterday, pursued by Army as the Spartans slipped to third. LOWE, THE RUNNERUP last season and recent Heptagonal winner, paced himself from memory. Bobby was content to allow Sweet, Pittsburgh's Don Adams and Michigan State's Morgan Ward battle for the early lead. Gerry Norman of Penn State and Michigan State's Gerry Young were leading the bulky field of 250 starters when Lowe took dead-aim at the duo.

At the start of the season, we didn expect to win more than half our games. We, too, have gotten better every week." The Navy team spirit has been exceptional.

GRID GRIST: Harvard doesn't expect to get much use from its two major knee casualties, quar terback Charley Ravenel and guard captain Terry Lcnzner, against Yale on Saturday. The NCAA has issued a stnng reminder to all athletic directors member colleges and universities to rule ineligible imme diately any college plaver who igns a pro contract prematurely.
