The Mets amassed 16 hits off :our Colt pitchers to make it easy for Jay Hook to register his 'ifth victory 'against eight 'de- 'eats. The New York right-hander permitted 'eight hits and walked ;hree as he went the distance for ;he fifth time this season. Ken Johnson was the Colt starter and loser. He gave up p six, hits jefore he was relieved by Dean Stone in the third inning when the Wets staged their big uprising. Hook opened the inning with a :mnt single and Ashburn hammered a pitch off the 'facade in right field for his fourth home Swift Lineman Gives Advice On How To Stop 2 All-Star Backs BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) - "You have to get Ferguson before he reaches the line of scrimmage. And Davis . . . you have to get him any way you can." The football player offering the advice on how to halt IDftl's two top running backs was Merlin 01- sen of Utah State, winner of last year's Outland Trophy as college football's best lineman. The 225-pound tackle and his Utah State teammate, tackle Clark Miller, will have their targets set on halfback Ernie Davis of Syracuse and fullback Bob Ferguson of Ohio Sate Friday night n the .second annual AllAmeriea Sootball Bowl game here. "When a good back like Davis takes the ball, you have to be moving and tackling as well as you can," Olsen continued. "You can get more defensive people at this point of the attack, you know. So if the defense is playing good football, it has the advanage in manpower, However, Olsen conceded* that others have employed the over simplified formula for slopping Davis and Ferguson with little apparent success. "'If you concentrate your manpower, you open up and they can go around and over, so . . ." He threw up his hands and shrugged. Assistant Coach Bill Murray ol Duke voiced agreement with 01- sen's observations. "We've got a 228-pound quarterback (Roman Gabriel, North Carolina Slate), a 222-pound halfback (Davis), and a 220-pound Here's J &F Polished Black madam®... the suit in the color far euery season!

And don't forget that quarterback can really thro 1 *," Murray added. The East, loser 30-20 in the 1961 inaugural of the game, quickly concedes lhat the West has the heavier line. "So it will be the fleas againsl the elms," said Ben Schwartzwalder of Syracuse, who with Murray is assisting head Coach Woody Hayes of Ohio State. "Who said size is everything' 1 Schwartawalder asked.
