LOUIS (AP - Bill McCreary took over as coach of the St. Louis Hockey Blues Sunday with a pledge to improve the club's defense. "1 subscribe to the theory of three goals to win. You don't need four or five if you have good defense." he said. The 36-year-old McCreary. who was coach of the Blues' farm team, the Denver Spurs, was named Saturday night to succeed Sid Abel as coach. Abel, in his first season with the Blues, was named general manager and Lynn Patrick, who was the GM. is now vice president. The 53-year-old Abel, who spent 30 years as a player, coach and general manager for the Detroit Red Wings, said at a news conference he didn't think he was getting the right response from the Blues players. "I thought maybe we should make a change." Abel said. 5 FOR 5 Willie Shoemaker acknowledges the applause of the crowd after winning the Oak Tree $100,000 Invitational at Santa Anita. Shoemaker was aboard Cougar II. his fifth mount of the day. He won all five races. A two dollar parlay would have returned $817. The win was the 43rd Stakes win for Shoemaker which equals a record set in 1957 by Bill Hartack. (UPI) By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS j With Nebraska and Oklahoma! continuing their merry chase] toward a Thanksgiving Day col- j lege football showdown, there! has been a tendency to ever-: look Michigan, but the unbeat-j en Wolverines put a stop to that j trend Saturday with a 61-7 rout j of Indiana. "Our goal is to go undefeated and win the Rose Bowl," said star runner Billy Taylor, who ripped the Indiana defenses for 172 yards and two touchdowns on only 11 carries, boosting his school record to 2,694 yards and coming within three of Tom Harmon's career mark of 33 touchdowns. "Then they will have to pick us No. 1. I think we're No. 1 right now." The Wolverines currently are ranked third behind Nebraska and Oklahoma. Nebraska defeated ninth-rated Colorado 31-7 while Oklahoma overpowered Iowa State 43-12. The top seven teams all Red Wing Coach Resigns DETROIT (AP)-Johnny Wilson, a Detroit Red Wing stalwart of the mid-1950s, has become the team's fifth coach in a little over two seasons following the abrupt resignation of coach Doug Barkley Sunday night. Barkley quit right after the Wings' 3-1 victory over the Pittsburgh Penguins, only the team's third victor)' in 11 games. "I didn't seem to get the players going," he told newsmen. "I couldn't go out on the ice for them when we were getting beat 9-2 and 7-2. They had to do it for themselves and I haven't been able to get it out of them." Berkley's resignation was the latest move in a series of tempestuous changes in top Wings' which began during the 1969-70 season. DIES Texas Christian University's head football coach Jim Pittman collapsed and died of an apparent heart attack on the sidelines Saturday after the game between TCU and Baylor University. He was 46. (UPI) Startling Proposal BOSTON (AP) --Vice President and General Manager Dick O'Connell of the Boston Red Sox had a startling proposal for re-alignment of baseball into three divisions today as general managers began a four-day huddle at Ponta Verda Beach, Fla. "We would have the East, Midwest and West," O'Connell told baseball writer Fred Ciampa of the Record American-Sunday Advertiser before heading South. "Leagues of eight teams would provide the best possible scheduling." O'Connell said. "We'd go from the 162 games back to the 154 games and all the teams would be in the same time zone. "This would be better all around. It would be a boon to the news media as well as the players. The way it is now. when eastern teams play in the far west, the newspapers, radio and television stations get the results very late. And as a result, a lot of local fans don't get the news until the next day." VOTE For Hie Man Who 'Knocked On Your Door' John D. Lowery Lloyd T.

No. 7, stopped South Carolina 24-0, the third consecutive shutout turned in by the Bulldog defenders, who have permitted only 21 points in their last seven games. The three other major un- beatens continued their winning ways, but two of them needed late field goals. Toledo, ranked 15th, upped the nation's longest winning streak to 31 games by trouncing Miami of Ohio 45-6, matching the 1948-50 Oklahoma teams for the second longest skein in modern times. Cornell and Dartmouth, the Ivy League pacesetters, are heading for a Nov. 13 confrontation. Cornell's Ed Marinaro gained 272 yards, erasing the major college career rushing standard of Oklahoma's Steve Owens and passing the 4,- 000-yard barrier, but the Big Red needed John Killian's 37- yard field goal with five minutes left--after Marinaro carried the ball on nine consecutive plays--to edge Colum- j bia 4-2i. Dartmouth nipped I Yale 17-15 on Ted Perry's 40- yard three-pointer with 53 seconds to play. | Rounding out the Top Ten, ninth-ranked Arkansas suffered its second big upset, bowing to Texas AM 17-9 behind Mark Green's two touchdowns and a defense that prevented the Razorbacks from establishing a running attack. Ohio State, ranked 10th, stopped Minnesota's Craig Curry inches short of the goal line on a disputed fourth-period two-point conversion attempt to preserve a 14-12 triumph over the Gophers. The big news elsewhere ranged from the sublime to the tragic. Eric Allen of Michigan State set a major college record by rambling for 350 yards (he carried 29 times and | scored four touchdowns in a ! 43-10 rout of Purdue. Coach Jim j Pittman of Texas Christian co!- j lapsed and died during his j team's game with Baylor. The j players, informed at hah'time. that Pittman was dead, rallied ] to defeat the Bears 34-27. | Michigan's Bo Schembechlerj apologized for running up 61] points on hapless Indiana. "Ij didn't think we would win this* way." he said, "and I didn't! want to. I would have liked a closer game. The coach at Indiana is one of my best friends and I didn't want to beat John (Pont) that way. "John was not only my team-j mate, but my roommate at Miami of Ohio," Schembechler recalled. "He was the greatest player in Miami history. They retired his number. He's a great competitor and a class guy. I wish I have as much class as John Pont if I ever get beaten this badly." Nebraska combined a rugged defense and Jerry Tagge's pinpoint passing to defeat Colorado, which Coach Bob Devaney called "the finest team we've played yet." Colorado's Eddie Crowder Called Nebraska "a rnsputicefii football team." but declined to predict the outcome of the Cornhuskers' game with Oklahoma. He did say it would take "a really super game" to beat Nebraska. Ken Johnson, the Colorado quarterback, said: "Nebraska's got the better defense, but I think Oklahoma has got the better offense. It's gonna be unreal." For the record. Oklahoma defeated Colorado 45-17. The Sooners rolled up 504 yards on the ground in beating Iowa State. Quarterback Jack Mildren passed for 175 yards- thai's right, Oklahoma threw the ball--and two touchdowns and ran for 148 and two more scores.
