And Sanford grabbed off about $25.000 profit. But in 1938 Texas Christian had a national champion and it went to the Sugar Bowl, leaving Sanford, who needed a Southwest Conference team to insure the game paying for itself, to lake what he could find. He came up with Texas Tech and St. Mary's of California and lost money In 1939'Texas A&M was national champion but it passed up the Cotton Bowl and went "In (he Sugar howl. And Sanford really was in a squeeze. Someone suggested thai he match Slippery Hock and Deepwater Teachers College. Rut he wouldn't go for that and finally managed to entice Boslon College to play Clemson. He knew, however, that this would be a loser since neither school held much interest in I he Southwest. The day of (he game, when Sanford knew he had lost about £20.000. he came to the press box and, trying to hide his deep disappointment, told everybody: "I had a party. 1 invited a lot THE GOLDEN RULE, accord to Vince Lombardi, is in full evidence in these recent NFL action photos. Green Bay's strategy of do unto others before they do unto you is portrayed, top, by Packer guard Jerry Kramer (64) as he whips a crunching block on a rushing Atlanta Falcon defender and by linebacker Lee Roy Caffey (60) as he attempts to use Minnesota Viking quarterback Joe Kapp as a corkscrew. Kapp managed to keep hi* head, however, and he and his mates went on to upset the Pack. of people, but not all of them ' came." Actually. Sanford puf on the fourth game at his own personal risk, although he had sold the; rights and lease to the stadium to a Dallas group. When the new owners talked about skipping 1940. Sanford. for fear the ; attraction might die if such a! plan was followed, staged the game anyway. j In 1940 the Southwest Conference decided the Cotton. Bowl would become an agency. Bul it wanted to keep the promotional genius of Sanford In the family, so he was named a 1 member of the board for life. : ! The 1941 game, that got Texas' A&M only because the Aggies i were upset by Texas and lost| a Rose Bowl bid. was the first | sellout although the stadium sealed only 45.000 in those days. It now handled 75.504. The conference at first made it optional thai ils champion play in the Cotton Bowl, next decreed that if it didn't it., couldn't play in another bowl: , game, and finally made it man-j dalory. j And so since 194! the Col Ion j Bowl has grossed $10.653.000 ir\ ! : receipts, paid competing (cams $7.144,000 and paid to the con- i Terence members that didn't Farr Takes AFL Honors By HAL BOCK Associated Press Sports Writer Miller Farr stuck his finger in i Houston's dam and presto, the Oilers became American Fool! hall League title contenders. Farr was named the American Football League's Defen- j sivc Player of the Week for the ! second time this season by The Associated Press today for his j part in Houston's 27-6 victory | over Boston last Sunday. He is! the first man to receive Player! of the Week honors twice this ! season. When Houston Coach Wally Lemm studied the Oilers' statistical perlormance after last season, it wasn't loo tough for him to see where Houston was hurting most. "We gave up 25 touchdowns over the left cornerback position last year" said Lemm. "That had to stop." So the Oilers dealt for Farr, surrendering linebacker John Baker and tackle Scott Appleton to get him away from the San Diego Chargers. '•The trade for Farr helped us where we needed help most," said Lemm. "He's as good as anv defensive back I've ever had. 1 ' And thai would include Larry Wilson and Pal Fischer, who played under Lemm when he coa'ched the St. Louis Cardinals of the National League. Only one touchdown has been scored in Farr's zone this season and that by San Diego's dynamic flanker, Lance Alworth. Over-all, the Oilers, who trail New York by one game in the AFL's Eastern race, have surrendered only 12 TDs all year- less than half the number scored over the left cornerback zone alone last season. Iceived $175.000'. ... pays each competing of its share and divides up tftg $228,000. the Southwest remainder with the other Conference learn keeps $100.000 : members.
