4 OAUAttbHirrtbuttC Wed , Dec. 11,1968 QfJ PASS THIEF Hundreds Attend Last Rites for Bear Coach Farr Wins Honor with 10 interceptions which he returned 264 yards. Until the Buffalo game, though, he had intercepted only one pass. "Last year they threw to , my man a lot, but they're not throwing to him this year," Farr explained. "Except for a few games, they've usually thrown to my side two or three times." Andy Morgensen CHICAGO (AP) - The Chicago Bear squad was among more than 500 mourners who attended the funeral yesterday of Phil Handler, Bear assistant coach since 1952. Handler, 60, died of a heart attack Sunday after watching the Bears defeat the Los Angeles Rams 17-16 on television in his suburban Skokie home. He, had been ill since an earlier heart attack last summer. Pallbearers Included Jim Dooley, head coach of the Bears; George Halas Jr., club . president; Ed McCaskey, Bear vice president and treasurer; Sid Luckman, assistant coach; Richard Samuels, a business associate, and Harold Macy, a relative. The Bears cancelled a morning practice to attend the funeral. On Vacation NE.W YORK (AP) - In discussing the attributes - that make Miller Farr one of the American Football League's better cornerbacks, a Houston Oiler coach once said, "When a man makes a move, he knows what the p a 1 1 e r n 's going to be." When a man makes a move, though, Farr also knows chances are good he won't be thrown to because that's the pattern of "play the opposition has followed this season. ' The Buffalo Bills altered that pattern just long enough last Saturday to learn why op-posing quarterbacks have stayed away from Farr as much as possible this season. The Oiler ace intercepted two passes and returned them both for touchdowns, on runs of 52 and 40 yards, as the Oilers whipped the Bills 35-6. The performance enabled Farr to be named AFL defensive player of the week by The Associated Press today, edging another cornerback, Goldie Sellers of Kansas City. - Farr led the AFL last year TIDE TABLE, PAGE 26 AFL fWhitworth i Named Top ILPGA Player CINCINNATI (AP) - Kathy Whitworth was named today as the Player - of - the - Year by the Ladies Professional IGolf Association, the . third I consecutive year Miss Whit-j worth has been accorded the vhonor. . .
