Packers Grab National "f Pro League Grid Lead Chicago Bears Houston Oilers Trample Dallas By United Press International The Houston- Oilers played like last year for Wally Lemm's head coaching debut in the American Football League, and the way the Eastern Division Is bunched, this club is still in the running for the cliampl(>nshlp__play6ff. While the San Diego Chargers' won their seventh straight game to make a runaway of the West ern Division standings, the two top teams in the East were knocked off to draw that race tighter than a miser's purse strings. Houston, the I960 Eastern Division champion, trounced the.Dal- las Texans, 38-7, for its first win sitice the opening game of the season. This was Lenim's first game as head man following the dismissal of Lou Rymkus last week. Meanwhile, with its "old" coach and "old" techniques, San Diego clobbered the Oakland Raiders, 41-10, and now has won more than twice as many games as any two other clubs in the league. The Eastern Division race was thrown wide - open when the Denver Broncos upset the New York Titans, 27-10, and the Boston Patriots drubbed the Buffalo Bills, 52-21. New York now leads the Eastern half of the league with a 3-3 record; Boston is 3-3-1, Buffalo 3-4 and Houston is last with 2-3-1. In guiding the Oilers to their victory before a home crowd of '23,228, Lcnim called on George 'Blnnda, the "old pro" who led Houston to last season's title. When second - year quarterback Jacky Lee failed to move the team and Dallas grabbed a 7-0 lead. Blanda came off the bench and broke open the game with three touchdowns in the second period. Blanda threw three touchdown passes, kicked a 53-y«rd field goal And five conversions, He also set up another TD with his passing as he completed 11 of 24 for 216 yards. His touchdown passes went 66 yards to Charlie Gen- nigan, 18 Billy Canon, and IS to Bill Oroman. MONDAY, OCTOBER M, INI . 54th YEAB Inside The Huddle By Joe Lee Smith Buffs Take On Arizona In Big Tilt By United Press International Arizona State gets a chance to open up its Border Conference lead this weekend when the Sun Devils host hapless Hardin-Simmons at Tempe. State, 4-1 on the season, has won its only conference start of the year and will go into the game fresh from a surprise 24-23 win over tough Oregon State- Harclin-Simmons, which hasn't won a game in two years, took it on the chin again last Saturday when West Texas State pounded the Cowboys 42-0.

The report said a doctor's study revealed thnt blows on face guards cause "whip lash" injuries, that the guards impair players' vision by 33 1-3 per cent and cause players to duck their heads to see, thereby increasing t he danger of injuries. Sullivan said none of his players had ever gone without the guards in games until this season and now none would consider wearing one. During the season's first game, he said, he had a complete set of helmets with guards on the sidelines for use in the event A player received a facial injury and it caused panic among his team. Sullivan plans to file reports on his experiment at the end of the season with the NOAA Rules Committee. edge over Texas West Texas is a over Arizona. Western and narrow choice Gruver has a fine ball club all right. Coach Corky Chapman has a well • balanced team with speed, size and power, But we felt like White Deer should have whipped the Greyhounds despite crippling injuries and playing on the Gruver home field. In fact, it is our opinion that lousy refereeing cost White Deer the ball game and possibly a share of the district 1-A title. The Bucks had one touchdown called back on delayed ,15 • yard penalty. By delayed, we mean it took th« referee a tew seconds to call the penalty. Had that score been allowed to stand up, White Deer would have gained a 14-14 tie with the extra point to be tried. And if that wasn't enough, the Bucks' Rickey Lowe broke loose on a 60-yard scamper that was called back to ths White Deer 36 when the referee claimed he stepped out of bounds. Three other local sportswriters and myself were within a few feet of the play in better position than the referee — and we all agreed that Lowe was never out of bounds. Now we aren't tuking anything away from Gruver. They have a find ball club and will make a good representative from this district. But never - the - less it is our opinion that White Deer, got a raw deal frorn the officials. The district races In the Panhandle area cleared up a wee bit last Friday. Gniver and Stinnett are the top teams in the district 1-A race as Panhandle lost to Stratford 28-14. The Rattlers play the Greyhounds at Stinnett, Nov. 3. It's still anyone's race in 3-AAA where Tascosa leads, but Palo Duro, Borger and Monterey challenge, Borger and Monterey play Friday night ftt the Bulldogs hdme Stadium. McLean sits'in the driver seat in 2-A after a narrow 13-12 victory over Memphis, The Tigers must-still "get past Lcfors to nail down the title, Groom and Wheeler will fight it out for the 2-B crown. Both clubs have 2-0 district marks and they meet Nov. 3 in a game that will probably decide 'the championship. In 5-AA, Perry ton arid Quanah tangle 'this Friday with the winner becoming an overwhelming favorite for the title. A Quanah victory would clear the last major hurdle for the Tribe. That Gruver - White Deer game was really a slam - bang affair. The two clubs were hitting as hard as we have seen anyone hit this season. We look for Gruver — if they can get by Stinnett — to advance finals where Or anyone else will fait to Al- Robinson Takes Unfavorable Win NEW YORK (UPI) — Sugar Ray Robinson considered today a return fight at Madison Square Garden on Nov. 24 or Dec. 16 with young Denny Moyer, over whom he won a unanimous but apparently unpopular decision in Saturday night's TV bout. Matchmaker Teddy Brenner asked the 41-year-old former middleweight and welterweight champion to take a return match with 22-year-old Moyer of Portland, Ore., if he hopes to get another shot at the middleweight crown. Robinson's first reaction to Brenner's return - bout request was this: "I thought I won by a fair margin Saturday night, and the ring offici-als thought to, too. However, I'll at least listen tp .the terms for another Moyer fight. Although the 7,800 fans in the Top Clubs Clash In SWC Race By United Press International The Texas touchdown juggernaut has a chance to crush the last vestages of disputed leadership this week in the Southwest Conference. The Longhorns play host to Rice in a game that seems to be a far cry from what was once given advance billing as the showdown for the title.

They looked right down the barrel withoij flinching and every time the Forty-Nlners pulled the trl?j ger, they fired a blank. That's the story of the National Football League's upset-of-the- week. .The Bears, using a "gimmick" defense designed by assist' ant coach Clark Shaughnessey, walloped the Forty - Niners, 31-0, Sunday and became a strong contender for? the Western Division championship.

The Packers had „ an, easy time drubbing . the Minnesota Vikings, 33-7. v i : The champion Philadelphia Eagles and. the; New ,York-Giants preserved .their tie for first' place in the Eastern Division, also with 5-1 records.

But it was a somewhat more rocky road that included a couple of narrow squeezes. The game against Arkansas expected to be the first real test of Texas power, and the Longhorns went through Razorback defensive bulwarks just as handily as it had four previous foes. Texas exploded Arkansas hopes with a solid 33-7 threshing. Rice had all it could handle in subduing oft-beaten Southern Methodist 10-0; Baylor has been brushed aside by Arkansas then was humiliated 19-17 by Texas Tech over the week end to virtually drop out of sight. 330 3 3 I 340 2 3 1 .500 .500 .429 .400 144 171 228 186 153 183 181 120 Western Division San Diego 700 1.000 227 92 Dallas Denver Oakland 3 3 3 4 0 .500 128 159 0 .419 152 176 I 5 0 .167 102 228 Sunday's Results San Diego 41 Oakland 10 Denver 27 New York 10 Boston 52 Buffalo 21 Houston 38 Dallas 7 SUFFERS HEAD INJURY DETROIT (UPI)-Gump Worsley, veteran New York Ranger goalie who suffered » head injury in * Saturday night game with the Detroit Red Wings, may be able to return to action in a week, according to doctors at Ost«opathic east Texas where an unheralded Hull-Daisetta club blasted A n a- huac, a season long favorite to play in the state finals, 36-18.
