THE NEWS-HERALD, FRANKLIN AND OIL CITY, PA. PAGE FOURTEEN THURSDAY. OCTOBER 29, 1953. SFOMTS Top Five Teams Big Favorites Steele s Brady, Top Pro Punier, Yearns to Minnesota s Giel Threatens Modern Total Plays Record Slick Halfback Most Dangerous On Option Plays MINNEAPOLIS (UP) Thoe persons who view Saturday's tele vision "Game of tne weeK oe tween Minnesota and Pittsburgh won't need a program to know who's carrying the ball for Minnesota. Most of the time it will be Paul Giel. Giel, whose last name rhymes with "eel," has been practically the entire Minnesota offense for three years. He reached the peak of his career last Saturday against Michigan when he handled the ball on 53 out of 63 plays a Big Ten record. The slippery halfback, a big No. 10 on his back, made the most of those plays. He scored two touchdowns and passed for a third. He gained 281 yards and . intercepted two passes to halt Michigan scor ing thrusts. He even held the ball for point after touchdown attempts. The All - American candidate fains most of his yardage and is most dangerous on what is called a "run-pass option" play. He Starts either to his right or left as if to pass. If the receivers are covered, he runs. Usually he runs and usually he makes yardage, even though he appears hopelessly mothered by onrushing tacklers. "Giel's not fast, but he makes up that deficiency with a deceiving motion. He doesn't waste a Step," Coach Wes Fesler says. Giel operates in the tailback spot of Fesler's "simplified" single wing offense. Fesler "simplified" the attack when it became apparent his full offense was "too much to master" under single platoon football. It is mostly limited to basic single - wing off - tackle thrusts, weak side reverses and Giel's passing. Helping to make Giel more ef fective is right halfback, Bob Mc- Namara, who wears No. 44. Hobbled by effects of a knee operation in the first two games, Me-Namara now has developed into an offensive threat. Other "key" players in the Gc pher lineup will be ends Bob Rut ford and Jimmy Soltau, g &. feij. $M.S Bm m fc&r T I'MJi Faul Geil !ln Week's GamesjTVy Passing Ability By KUDY CERNKOVIC PITTSBURGH (UP) The folks NEW YORK (UP) All of the na- uuu w xive .wm were listed in Seattle who remember a rangy as heavy favorites todav to win ," t , , their football eames on Satnrrfav kid who spent long hours kicking with only fifth-ranked Illinois being picked by as little as one touchdown.

"The best I've done this season was 64 yards against the Eagles." Brady and tackk Nick Bolkovac, the Steelers' placekicker, practice together. "I'm Nick's No. 1 rooter," Brady said.

By EARL WRIGHT NEW YORK (UP) How does it feel to be 'a rookie trying to make good in the rugged National Football League? "Just fine," said Roosevelt Brown, a 245-pound tackle from Morgan, State who won a starting berth on the New York Giants' offensive line this year. "It's certainly tougher than college football but I'm glad I tried the pro game. "The main differences seem to be that everyone you go up against in pro ball is a top man big and smart and fast. In college I didn't run into boys as big as I am every Saturday. I've been in five pro games and all the men across the line seem as big or bigger than me. The 21-year-old Brown stands 6-3.

When he gets a year of pro ball under his belt, he'll be able to go both ways and you won't have to worry about where he plays," Owen said. Brown, like most current pro football players, already is locking beyond his playing days. "I hope to go to Springfield College 'at Springfield, Mass.) after the pro season and begin studying for a master of education degree. Some day, I'd like to get a job as a coach," he explained. Brown came out of last Sunday's Igame with the Cleveland Browns tells why its return is good for fish, waterfowl and even the; ocean. Eelgrass is not a grass andi is not eaten by eels. j "Worldwide in distribution, eelgrass grows along the temperate and subarctic coasts in Europe, Asia, and Australia. Along the Atlantic Coast, the plant originally grew from southern North Carolina northward to Greenland, Labrador, and James Bay. On the Pacific Coast, it extends from southern California northward to the Bering Sea." ' Numerous fish used the grass as! a place to breed, to feed, or to j hide. Waterfowl fed on the roots I and on the animal food that was' abundant in the beds and in the wracks that washed up on the shore. "But of the many known and unknown values of eelgrass, the one most Important to the fisherman and to the fish was the tre mendous quantity of invertebrate life supported by the grass beds: the worms, shrimp, scuds, snails a whole host of tiny animal forms which fit into the fish's food chain." After the mysterious blight struck the eelgrass, the beds began to die out and disappear. From 1932 to 1942, the eelgrass fought a wavering battle. "Since then, however, the recovery of ele-grass has been progressively encouraging. 'Grass' beds have reappeared in many localities along the Atlantic Coast and in some areas the grass is now as abundant as it ever was." Eelgrass means food, and food means fish the most important steps toward assuring more fish for catching.
