FLORIDA WILDS MIAMI — No white man to date has ever completely explored the miles of winding channels in the Everglades which spread over four million acres. to have a friend j,: i * * •? one SEND HALLMARK GREETING CARDS TO SOMEONE TODAY BAITIRTON'S West Side TVuq Store PA«3 Big Ten Fobtbalf— Purdues Grjese Is Called "Fantastic" CHICAGO (UPI) — Northwestern leads the Big Ten's conference standings, but everything else, including an almost certain top national ranking, belongs to Purdue. The Wildcats made it to the tip by winning the season's only league .game thus far, a 2(M) upset over Indiana Saturday. Purdue, which got under way two weeks ago by shelling Miami of Ohio, .38-0, rallied in the final four minutes to beat top-ranked Notre Dame, 25-21. The Boilermakers were one of four big winners over intersectional' rivals. Illinois defeated Southern Methodisf, 42-0, Iowa beat Oregon State, 27-7, and Michigan State blanked Penn State, 23-0. j Also on the conference's plus j side was Michigan's 10-7 deci-' sion over California. Griese Weekend Hero Then there was Ohio State, which was surprised by North Carolina, 14-3, Wisconsin's 26-6 loss to Southern California, and Minnesota's 14-13 defeat by Washington State. Purdue's Bob Griese emerged as the weekend's hero. Griese, who once hoped to play for Notre Dame, did the next best thing. He completed 19 of 22 passes, three for touchdowns, while thoroughly confounding the Irish secondary. Griese als otook the Boilermakers on a 67-yard scoring march to insure victory in the last four minutes o'f the game. Coach Ara Parseghian of Notre Dame called Griese's performance "fantastic" and said there just was ho defense against it. "It's almost impossible to complete 19 of 22 .passes if you're just running patterns without a defense. Even in practice you're going to have some dropped. He didn't," Parseghian said. Custardo, Wright Star Fred Custardo of Illinois also had a successful Saturday afternoon. The Illini quarterback's completion percentage was better than Griese's nine for nine in the three periods he played. John Wright, son of Illinois track coach Robert Wright, caught two of Custardo's scoring pitches, one for 54 yards and another for 64-i.In all,., Wright caught six passes' for 164 yards. Iowa's victory on the West Coast ended an eight-game losing streak. Quarter/back Gary Snook directed the Hawkeyes to- a 24-0 halftime lead. The Oregon Beavers got their only touchdown after a linebacker ran back an intercepted pass. Northwestern's Ron Rector scored 'two touchdowns in the upset over the Hoosiers, who threatened twice, but not seriously. North Carolina's Tarheels gave Ohio State coach Woody Hayes what may be his most unpleasant afternoon of the developing season. They scored the first time they got their hands on the-ball and got another touchdown in -the final minute of play. Ohio State's Bab Funk made the most of a bagged-down 76- yard drive by kicking a 26-yard field goal for his'team's only score. Any mention of "We're No. 1," or "We're going to the Rose Bowl" drew only polite grins from Purdue coach Jack Mollenkopf today. : "We haven't even played our conference opener yet and we play seven of them in a row," he said. But he-did concede that Saturday's victory'before a record crowd of nearly 62,000 in Lafayette' was achieved by "the best team I've ever had." Junior quarterback Griese of Evansville passed for 283 yards. Eight of his tosses, for 113 yards, went to star end Bob Hadrick. Purdue seeks its third straight non-conference win at Southern Methodist Saturday before heading into the Big Ten campaign. Indiana also invades the Lone Star State this weekend, for a night encounter with tough Texas, while Notre Dame plays its first home game of the season against Northwestern. Indiana managed only 34 yards rushing against Northwestern and Frank Stovroff had three passes intercepted to kill any Hoosier chances for victory. Minnesota Is Fpr Series , WASHINGTON (UPI)—Minnesota Twins Manager Sam Mele rested at his Quincyy Mass., home today, confident that his American League cnampioris are "ready for anybody" in the World Series. Mele flew to his home shortly after the Twins clinched the American League title Sunday by downing the Washington Senators 2-1. He planned to spend the day with his pregnant wife and rejoin the Twins in Balti- .mpre Tuesday. ''".,' : ""Amid"' the popping" of cBani- pagne' corks ' in the dressing room before he left for home', Mele told reporters: "My prediction is the same as I made before the season—we've got the "pitching and we've 'got the team, we're ready for anybody." Among the Twins'' players, however, the favorite opponent seemed to be the San Francisco Giants. Cries of "bring oh the Giants" could be heard frequently as the players'celebrated but there was no mention of the Los Angeles Dodgers, who moved into a tie with the Giants while the celebration was going on. Warriors Defeated T] By fadians^ 14-9 ' PROviDENCE, l R. I. (UPI) — Tom Kennedy threw a pair of fourth-period touchdown passes Sunday night to give the Rhode Island Indians a 14-9 Continental Football League victory over.the Fort Wayne Warriors. The result left the two teams tied for second place in the league's western division with three victories and four losses each. Kennedy passed 18 yards to Bruce Smith for one score and 10 yards to Joe Fowlkes for the second. Jerry Morgan Mckejl both extra points. T: Miss Madison Fourth \ In Hydroplane Race STATELINE, Nev. (UPI) — Miss Madison held fourth place in the race for the national unlimited hydroplanes title today as a result of the Lake Tahoe race Saturday. - ^ Mis Bardahl of Seattle won it and now leads the point stand- bigs with 6,577 followed by Notre Dame 5,564, Tahoe Miss 5,069 and Miss Madison 4,572. • Firestone Tires • Seat Covers • Brake Service • Engine Tune-up • Wheel Alignment • Wheel Balancing • Lubrication • Battery Service • Philco Radios • Philco Televisions 225 E.
