Now Memphis State it th« latest opponent of the Seminoles who wished Peterson had gotten the wrong number. McCullers, a junior linebacker, figured in more than half his team's tackles last Saturday, leading the defense that sparked Florida State over Memphis State 26-7 for its fifth straight victory. "It was the greatest gam* I've ever seen a college linebacker play," said Peterson, and for that performance, McCullers was named The Associated Press Lineman of the Week today. The 6-foot-2, 198-pounder made 17 tackles and assisted on six others as Memphis managed only 38 plays from scrimmage. He also threw Memphis quarterbacks for losses totaling 38 yards and recovered a fumble at the Seminole 21 when Memphis appeared on its way to a touchdown on the game's first series of downs. "It was McCullers, more than anybody, who stopped their running game cold when it looked like early in the game they were going to run us off the field with it," Peterson said after Memphis gained 180 yards in the first half and only four in the second. Florida State almost lost McCullers, but for Peterson's phone call a month before th« season began. Peterson had not figured on him because McCullers took a job and missed spring practice. "We heard just before fall practice that he might get interested in coming back out for football," Peterson said, "and we gave him a call. I hate to think what shape we'd be in if we hadn't made that call." 1968 TORINO GT FASTBACK AS WE WERE SAYING Your Ford Dealer's got the Better Idea cars. Now ••• he's making up for lost time.

Cepeda Unanimous Choice for Award SAN JUAN (AP) — Puerto Rican Orlando Cepeda, named the National League's Most Valuable Player in a unanimous vote, is a very happy and proud man. Interviewed at his Bayamon home after his selection today, Cepeda gave most of the credit for his award and tremendous comeback with the world champions St. Louis Cardinals to team trainer Dr. Robert Bauman, "whose selflessness and hard work helped me greatly this year." The Cards' big first baseman became the first player in the history of the National League to receive unanimous support from the MVP award. Weasel and Flea Spark Saints in Win Over Eagles By The Associated Press "The Weasel" joined "The Flea" on the honor list today for the New Orleans Saints, still savoring their first victory in the National Football League. "The Weasel"—corner back Dave Whitsell — was named the NFL's Defensive Player of the Week today by The Associated Press for his efforts in the Saint's 31-24 conquest of the Philadelphia Eagles Sunday. Whitsell, a 31-year-old pickup in the expansion draft from the Chicago Bears, is noted for his blocks of placement kicks and his pass interceptions. He won with the highest bat- Ing average since Pittsburgh's Dick Groat won it batting .325 in 1960. Cepeda finished the season also with .325, hit 25 homers and batted in 111 runs, top in the circuit. "This is the most marvelous thing that could happen to a ball player," Cepeda said after receiving a telephone call from St. Louis announcing the award. "I feel very proud, but I really don't know what to say. I want to thank all the people who helped me. "This is so big, specially when I was so close to quitting the game because of my knee injury. Imagine, for the second year in a row a Puerto Rican player wins the award," Cepeda added. He was referring to Roberto Clemente, the Pittsburgh Pirates' outfielder winner last year and third in the voting this year. Clemente received 129 points this time and finished behind catcher Tim McCarver of the Cardinals, who got 136 points. Ron Santo, Chicago third baseman, was forth and Hank Aaron, Atlanta outfielder, was fifth. Cepeda was named as the number one choice on all the 20 members of the Baseball Writers Association of America named to pick the MVP. He received 280 points. The 30-year-old player in his 10th season in the majors. He was traded last year by the San Francisco Giants to the Cards for pitcher Ray Sadecki. Huarte on Taxi Squad For Eagles PHILADELPHIA (AP) - It's been three years since John Huarte knew the glory of being a great quarterback at the mec- ca of college football, Notre Dame. Huarte recalled it well Tuesday as he signed with the Phil- adelpia Eagles of the National Football League. He was assigned to the Eagles' taxi squad, a little group whose members are called upon in the event of injury to a regular. Huarte was everybody's choice in 1964 as the Heisman Trophy winner, symbolic of college football's standout player. The Eagles drafted him sixth. The New York Jets of the then struggling American Football League selected him second. Tht Jets also picked a No. 1 that year by the name of Joe Namath. They reportedly gave Namath a $400,000 package, and Huarte a $200,000 deal. Huarte wound up on the Jets' taxi squad with Namath and Mike Taliafaro kept as quarterbacks. After one season the sidearm thrower from South Bend was traded to the Boston Patriots where he became a seldom used substitute. This year he decided to play out his option with Boston, so he could become a free agent in 1967. Asked why he invoked the option clause, Huarto said, "I just wanted to play." Boston didn't wait for the option to expire. The Patriots let Huarte go last month. Now, the 23-year-old passer has rejoined the coach who first recruited him for Notre Dame, Joe Kuharich. Now general manager and coach of the Eagles, Kuharich told Huarte there was no guarantee he would play with the Eagles as long as Norm Snead and King Hill are healthy. "We'll take him to camp next year," Kuharich said. "We think this boy is as well qualified as any boy (quarterback) in college this year. But we have no plans of playing him now. "We just want him to' work with the taxi squad and get a little acclimated to our style."
