PAGE? Greemburg (Ind.) Daily News, 9,1965 Coach of the Week— Jack Mollenkopf Gives Credit to Aides, Players LAFAYETTE, Ind. (UPI)— Years ago he earned the nickname "Jack The Ripper" for his team's defensive prowess, but he remains an advocate of the old adage that offense is the best defense. He played it to 'the hilt on both accounts last Saturday and when the dust cleared from the turf of Ross - Ade Stadium, Purdue had snared a pulsating 25-21 triumph over Notre Dame. The victory not only catapulted the Big Ten Boilermakers into the No. 1 spot in the United Press International ratings but also earned Jack Mollen- koptf coach-of-the-week honors. The stocky Mollenkopf, in his 10th year at the helm of the often - called "Spoilermakers,"' was quick to give the credit to his assistants and players who got themselves "up" mentally for the classic battle. "Be sure and give the credit to Bob Demoss and Len Jardine," he said. "They ran our offense and planned the passing. And Ned Maloney did the scouting." After viewing films of the Notre-Dame California season opener, Mollenkopf's sharp eyes analyzed the Irish defense and tried to pick out a few soft spots. "Notre Dame is big and has a fine ball club, but we thought we could throw into the flats," Mollenkopf explained. "Mollenkopf is a proven past master of "rock-and-sock" foot- ball, with emphasis on fundamentals. Cited Shortcomings He took his club to task for shortcomings in the opener against Miami of Ohio, then prepared for the Irish. A record crowd of nearly 62,000 streamed into the arena on an ideal sunny day as" the thriller unfolded. The lead switched back and forth and Notre Dame went in front 21-18, with 5:20 to go and Purdue in possession of the 'ball. "I told Bob Griese, our quarterback, to throw that ball," Mollenkopf said. And Griese, who had his finest day, responded. He had already fired eight passes to Bob Hadrick to tie a school record, and his scheme was to fool the defenders. He hit Jim Finley with a 32- yard toss, then .passed twice to Jim Beirne for a total of 32 yards and Gordon Teter blasted over from the three for the winning touchdown. Notre Dame was stopped cold in the final two minutes and this epic 'battle was over. "The fact we stopped their last drive might have made the difference," Mollenkopf said. "There wasn't any more than that between these two -clubs. All Purdue-Notre Dame games are slam-bang affairs. They're tough to lose and a thrill to win. "I honestly think our victory was well-deserved." Mollenkopf said this was probably the best Notre Dame Purdue, Notre Dame Picked; IU Underdog NEW YORK (UPI)—The od- dsmakers figure the top-ranked college football teams can 'breathe easily this weekend. Purdue, Texas, Nebraska and Arkansas—the first four in the latest United Press International rankings—are heavy favorites. Ninth-ranked Notre-Daffle and lOth-ranked Southern California also are prohibitive choices, indicating that this Saturday may be the easiest of the season for the ranking powers. .the roughest hurdle, according to the point spread, is faced by sixth -ranked Louisiana State, a slim two-point favorite over Florida. Michigan, the No. 5 team, is liked by eight over upstart Georgia and both Michigan State (No. 7) and Kentucky (No. 8) are six-point choices over Illinois and Auburn, respectively. 15-Point Favorite Purdue, rated No. 1, is a solid 15 point selection over Southern Methodist. Runnerup Texas rates 19 over Indiana, third-ranked Nebraska is favored by 20 over Iowa State and Arkansas, fourth in the standings, is regarded 13 points better than Texas Christian. Notre Dame (No. 9)' is favored by 17 over Northwestern and lOth-ranked Southern Cal is picked by 12 over Oregon State. The best games this weekend apparently will be intersectional battles. Missouri, one of the favorites for the Big Eight title, is a one- point pick over Minnesota of the Big Ten. Another Big Ten team, Ohio state, is rated even with Washington and West Virginia is a two-point pick over arch rival Pittsburgh. Other games: The East — Brown 1 over Pennsylvania; _ Princeton 13 over Columbia; Dartmouth 4 over Holy Cross; Penn State 7 over UCLA; Army 1 over Boston College; Colgate 6 over Yale. The South—North Carolina 10 over Virginia; Virginia Tech 7 over William & Mary; Clemson 6 over Georgia Tech; Vanderbilt 6 over Wake Forest; Alabama 8 over Mississippi; South Carolina 5 over North Carolina, State. The Midwest-Iowa 7 over Wisconsin; Colorado 4 over Kansas State. The Southwest-Stanford 16 over Air Force; Tulsa 3 over Oklahoma State; Duke 3 over Rice; Miami (Fla.) 7 over Tulane; Texas Tech 6 over Texas A&M; Oklahoma 7 over Navy. The West^California 8 over Kansas. The pros: National Football League — Cleveland 6 over Philadelphia; New York - Pittsburgh, even; Baltimore 13 over San Francisco; Detroit 7 over Washington; Green Bay 12 over Chicago; Minnesota 4 over Los Angeles. American Football League— Buffalo 7 over Oakland; Kansas City 8 over Boston; Denver 3 over New York; San Diego 6 over Houston. team Purdue has ever beaten, but last Saturday Purdue was the best team we have ever had." Griese "Fabulous" He lauded the defensive line, the secondary and the offensive line for its tremendous job in giving Griese pass protection. The junior turned in an amazing job of 19 completions in 22 attempts for 284 yards and three touchdowns. "He had a fabulous, day—I am sure he had his best day," Mollenkopf said. Immediately, speculation rose that Purdue is the No. 1 contender to represent the Big Ten in the Rose Bowl on New Year's Day—'but Mollenkopf would have none of this. "Football is a topsy-turvy sport," he parried. "To stay on top, we have to play just as well every week. We haven't played our first conference iame yet and right now Iowa a week from Saturday is the toughest team we face. "These boys have confidence and poise. They told me during the week, 'Don't worry, coach, we'll foeat Notre Dame.' Then they went out and did it." Mollenkopf thought the fact Purdue beat Notre Dame "makes winning more difficult, for everybody wants to beat the team that • beat Notre Dame." "But I hope this doesn't bother our boys," he said. "I think this is a great bunch of seniors—as fine a group as I could have. I think they'll attempt to get themselves in top shape for every game." And if Purdue succeeds, Pasadena may get its first look at Purdue come Jan. 1.

Thursday's Games Cincinnati at San Francisco St. Louis at Houston, (night) . Milwaukee at Los Angeles,; night (Only games scheduled) By FRED DOWN UPI Sports Writer The long road that took Lou Johnson on a 12-year journey to 18 minor league cities has brought the 33-year-old vagabond of the hamburger circuit and the Los -Angeles Dodgers to within a few strides of the National League pennant. An obscure hitter even among the Dodger popguns, Johnson struck the most dramatic iblow of the NL season to date Tuesday • night when his 12th-inning homer brought a 2-1 victory over the Cincinnati Reds and gave the Dodgers a onengame lead over the San Francisco Giants. It was the Dodgers' llth straight triumph and left the Reds only a mathematical chance to tie for the pennant even if they win all their remaining five games and Los Angeles loses its last five, games.'More important, it gave the Dodgers a vital one-game margin over the stumbling Giants and a clear shot at a Cage Coach Resigns at Wake Forest WINSTON - SALEM, N. C. (UPI)—Flamboyant Horace Al-' bert (Bones) McKinney, whose sideline dramatics were not what one might expect of an ordained Baptist minister, resigned Tuesday as head basketball coach at Wake Forest College. The college announced that assistant coach Jackie Murdock, 30-year-old Wake Forest basketball immortal who was fired following a "misunderstanding" with the school last season, would succeed the lanky, excitable McKinney. .. McKinney, 46, gave poor health as the reason for his decision to quit after ei§ht years as Deacon head coach. He said he would hang up the lucky red socks he wore during each game and seek a non-coaching position. McKinney coached Murdock as an 11-year-old little league basketball player in his hometown of Raleigh and later recruited his quiet, soft-spoken successor for Wake Forest. McKinney, who has been known to throw towels at spectators and exasperate officials, submitted his letter of resignation to Wake Forest President Dr. Harold Tribble from his bed at North Carolina Baptist Hospital here. He was being treated .for a severe cold, but the strain of 13 years on the sidelines began to show last year. "It's getting harder every year," .he told United Press International ui an interview last season. "At 'noon on the day of the game, it starts right here in your stomach." McKinney came to Wake Forest in 1953 as assistant to late head coach Murray Grea- sori. He'became head coach on March 26, 1957,' and steered the Deacons to a 122-94 record in eight seasons, the Atlantic Coast .Conference tournament finals five years in a row (19601964) and Jhe ACC championship twice (1961-1962).

The Dodgers have one game left with the -Reds ,and four with the Braves while the Giants have one with the Cardinals and four with the 'Reds. Broke Up Battle Johnson's blow broke up a tense three-hour and 59-minute duel which ended more than an hour after the Dodgers saw the Giants' defeat flashed on their Scoreboard. It was the biggest hit of the veteran outfielder's career — a career that started with Olean in the Pony League in 1953 and has. wound dishearteningly through 18 minor league cities and three unsuccessful major league trials. Johnson found a "home" with the Dodgers this season, however, when Tommy Davis was injured at the start of the carfl- paign and has iplugged along in typical Dodger scrambling Twins' Move Idea Planted b Editor MINNEAPOLIS - ST. PAUL 'Gabe Murphy (who owns 40 per cent of the Twins' stock) claimed we needed approval from 66 2-3 per cent of the stockholders to move the club," Griffith said. "We felt we only needed a majority and Thelma and I have that majority. "The judge ruled from the bench in our ^favor," Griffith said. "If he would have waited' to make fais decision we would not have been in the position to request a move when the time 1 came." Cross Country Crew Takes First Victory The Greensburg High School cross country team scored its first triumph in five outings here Tuesday afternoon, downing Waldron runners by a score of 23 to 32. ' Turning in their best times to date over the two-mile Greensburg Country Club course.

Griffith made the trip with his ball club and stayed on for several days to take a look at the Twin Cities and the area from which a major league club would draw. "I had an official reason for being here without focusing attention on the fact that I was looking over the area as a potential home for the club," Griffith said. During the next two years Griffith kept daily weather charts on the Twin Cities. He recorded high and low temperatures . and the dates when it rained.

Giant starter Ray Herbel suffered his ninth setback after being bombarded for six hits and four runs in 4 23 innings.

Cloninger struck out 10 and walked only three. Bill Faul pitched a two-hitter and scored the decisive run for the Cubs after an eighth-inning double.
