Lions Must Whip Packers to Stay In Pennant Race By JOE GERGEN UPI Sports Writer The Detroit Lions, who lost their first National Football League game last weekend to the Baltimore Colts, have the opportunity to stain Green Bay's spotless record Sunday and tie the Packers for first place in the Western Division standings. Detroit's 31-7 loss to the Colts in Baltimore left Green Bay as the only undefeated team in the NFL and in sole possession of the' top .spot in the West, one game ahead of the Lions and Colts. Now the Lions must contain the Packers in order to remain in pennant contention. The odds-makers favor Green Bay by nine points, although the game will be played at Detroit's Tiger Stadium. The top pairing in the East matches the defending NFL champion Browns, currently deadlocked with St. Louis for first, and the flashy Dallas Cowboys at Cleveland. The injury-racked Browns rate a 10- point advantage over Dallas. In other games, the Colts are favored by 12 over the winless Redskins at Washington, the Cardinals are a 12-point choice over the Pittsburgh Steelers, the Minnesota Vikings rate a seven-point edge over Chicago, the New York Giants are a three-point underdog to Philadelphia and the San Francisco-Los Angeles battle is considered a toss-up. Banking On Defense Detroit's hope for an upset rests largely with its usually reliable defense. The Lions also boast the NFL's leading punter, Pat Studstill, with a 46-yard average. Green Bay made its best offensive showing of the year last weekend in whipping San Fran- \\ witha;fuel-&ving OIL HOME HEATER HEATS FLOORS not ceilings! CAPTURES HEAT others waste!

The Browns will be without cornerback Walter Beach, and Leroy Kelly has proved himself to be a fine addition to Cleveland's league-leading rushing attack, which centers on Jimmy Brown. Quarterback Frank Ryan is sound once again. The Cowboys alternated rookie quarterbacks Jerry Rhome and Craig Morton after Don Meredith slumped at the key position. But the Cowboys still have a solid defense and the most electrifying rookie in the NFL in sprinter Bob Hayes. Healthy Squad Defensive back Lenny Lyles of the Colts still is doubtful with a knee injury but otherwise Baltimore is hi good shape for its encounter at Washington. The Colt defense has been surprisingly strong, topping the league in both total defense and rushing defense, while the 'Skins lead the NFL in pass defense. Unitas is as good as ever, which gives Baltimore a decided advantage over the punchless Redskins, now 0-4. The Cards, who lead the league in total offense and passing offense, have won three games hi a row but can expect trouble from the improving Steelers, who gave the Browns fits last weekend before bowing 24-19. The Bears send the league's top passer, Rudy Bukich, and rookie running flash Gale Sayers in-quest of Chicago's second straight victory. Minnesota also has rebounded from early season disappointments to win its last two contests. King Hill, who starred for the Eagles against Dallas last week, will start at quarterback for Philadelphia, which lost to the Giants 16-14 three weeks ago. Grid Fans Entertained By Bandsmen The "Marching Pirates" of Greensburg High School duplicated the excellent performance of the "football Pirates" who beat Rushville here Friday night, 27-7. The 105-member band, under direction of William 0. Marvin, entertained the Dad's Night crowd of over 1,000 at Shriver Field with a fine halftime show that paid tribute to one of America's best known composers, John Philip Sousa. The "Salute to Sousa" saw the band play several of his famous compositions, including marches, folk songs and hymns, and execute a number of intricate marching formations. Features were an outline of the Liberty Bell with swinging pendulum, which extended the width of the football field, and the concluding selection, "Stars and Stripes Forever," with a large American flag outlined on the field by small flags placed in the ground. Fathers of the players, wearing their son's numerals, were introduced prior to the opening kickoff and were seated along the gridiron near the 50 yard line. A drawing for a football autographed by all the players was won by Fred Netherland, representative for Pat McCarty. LEANING TOWER The famed leaning tower of Pisa is 14 feet from the vertical.

By United Press International The National Ba'sketball Association has opened its 20th season, and cage court greats Jerry West of Los Angeles and Oscar Robertson Of Cincinnati still are as hot as ever. The NBA's two all-star guards scored 36 points each in Friday night's season openers as West led the Lakers to a 122119 win at San Francisco, while Robertson's splurge was not enough since St. Louis took a 111110 decision at Cincinnati. The Warriors rallied from a 61-45 deficit to tie Los Angeles, 92-all, with 8:20 left in the game, but West sank a jump shot and scored eight more points the rest of the way to keep the Lakers ahead. Center Leroy Ellis hit 12 of his 22 points in the final stanza to help the Lakers preserve the win. At Cincinnati, the Hawks' Zelmo Beaty pumped in 20 of his 24 points during a second half splurge after the Royals had led 61-55 at the half. The Royals were limited to five field goals during an ice- cold fourth quarter, but Robertson — who ended his holdout siege last Sunday—meshed 14 of 21 field goal attempts for the night. Len Wilkens led the Hawks with 28 points. Spahn Is Released By Giants SAN FRANCISCO (UPI) — Warren Spahn, greatest left- hander in baseball history, was looking for a job today. The San Francisco Giants handed the 363-game winner his unconditional release Friday in Creensburg (Ind.) Daily New».Saturihy, Ort. 16,1965 PA«3 Today's Sport Parade— Koufax, Wills Are Mighty Weary Guys By MILTON RICHMAN UPI Sports Writer NEW YORK (UPI) — Sandy Koufax patiently answered a thousand and one questions before going out and wrapping up the World Series, but there was one that stopped him. 'Are you," one jokester asked the Dodger ace, "planning to play any whiter ball? It was a gag, of course. Sandy shot his questioner a funny look and then joined in the general laughter. The only ball Koufax will have anything to do with from now until spring training in February will, be a golf ball and he doesn't even plan to overdo that. Vacation Time Both he and Dodger teammate Maury Wills are a pair of mighty weary customers at the moment and each plans to get away from it all for a while. Koufax win play a little golf around the Los Angeles area tor the next two weeks or so, after which he'll take a vacation trip he has been thinking about for more than a year. 'Wills isn't masting any time. Immediately, if not sooner, he says, he's going hunting in one of his favorite spots in Idaho, which he promises will be "25 miles from the nearest telephone." It's a toss-up who's more tired, Koufax or WiUs. Few ballplayers worked any harder than those two this year. Including the three games he pitched in the World Series, Koufax toiled a total of 360 innings this year, more than any pitcher in the world, including always- ready- to- go Satchel Paige. Sandy also struck out 411 a ««= a of player shifts. (batters (counting those in the Spahn, 44, won only 7 and lost Serte.) and that works out 0 a series 16 in 1965 while splitting the season between last place New York and second place San Francisco. He was 4-12 for the Mets, who placed him on waivers, and 3-4 for the Giants, who picked him up in July. He pitched consistently well for six or seven innings in every game for the Giants, who did not score many runs for him. It is conceivable that Spahn may be signed again by the Giants before spring training, presumably at a smaller salary than he was paid last year. The Giants did much the same with veteran Billy Pierce this season. Spahn reportedly was working on a $70,000 contract with the Mets, whom he also served as pitching coach, and earned an estimated $15,000 with the Giants. , Spahn's career win total has only been exceeded by Cy Young, Walter Johnson, Christy Mathewson, and ander. He holds Grover Alexa number of modern records, including winning 20 or more games 13 times, leading the league in complete games nine times, striking out 100 or more batters 17 seasons in a row. and fanning 2550 batters, a record for a southpaw He has pitched 63 shutouts and two no-hitters. Grades Sideline Two Cross Country Boys Scholastic ineligibility hit the Greensburg High School cross country team that participated in the sectional meet at New Castle Friday afternoon. Grades for the first six-week period came out Thursday and the top two local runners, Chauncey Robbins and Carl Tetrick, were sidelined for Friday's final meet of the season. As a result the team finished 17th in the field of 20. Jim Sturgis captured 21st place among the 134 runners entered and other local placings were: Richard Bockover, 85th; Richard Schilling, 94th; Richard Ernstes, 97th; and Dave Clark, 105th. John Elliott of Burney, competing as an finished 33rd. individual only, Richmond nosed out Connersville for team honors by one point, 92 to 93, although Darryl Bishop of Connersville won first place with a time of 10 minutes, 38 seconds for the two-mile course.

As Casey Stengel says, "I don't know of any man in baseball who has done that before." Wills' Records Wills wasn't exactly sitting around sunning himself, either. He played in 158 of. the Dodgers' 162 games during the regular season and tacked on seven more in the Series with the Twins: His arms and legs covered with bruises still that are are his personal souvenirs of the 94 bases he stole during the season and the three more he pilfered against Minnesota. "I'm pretty sure my right leg is damaged inside," says Wills, showing suprisingly little concern. "I don't know whether it's a ligament or a muscle but I know it's something because I can feel it when I slide. "That doesn't mean I'm thinking about quitting baseball, though. I don't 'feel I'm tiring out there on the field. The way I feel now I can keep going indefinitely." Wills is 33 and Koufax is four years younger. This trip Sandy is taking is one he has been looking forward to a long time. He's go- Thomson, Player in Piccadilly MIKE HUGHES UPI Sports Writer WENTWORTH, Eng. (UPI)— Australian golfing ace Peter Thomson and South Africa's Gary Player battled today for the 5000-pound ($14,000) Piccadilly world match play championship. The pan- teed off on the Wentworth West course at 9:30 a.m. GMT (4;30 a.m. EOT) for 36 holes of relentless pressure- golf. Today's weather was expected to be "dry with patches of sunshine and a temperature of about 57 degrees" according to London forecasters. Thomson and Player emerged finalists of the 16,000-pound ($44,800) championship Friday after a day of fantastic match play golf. : The hero of the semifinals was the little South African and U.S. Open title-holder who upset Tony Lema. Player beat Lema at the 37th hole after making one of the most amazing recoveries of his career. If he can maintain the form which toppled Lema, Player has every chance of taking the .championship. ^ Thomson, the British Open champion, wrecked Arnold Palmer's hopes of reaching the final with a day of great* consistent golf. Palmer, although not at his best, never once led the little Aussie. ing to a place where he can relax and though no take it matter easy, where al- he goes in the world, someone is bound to recognize him. Awards Forseen Koufax and: Wills both will be back in- circulation long before spring training starts, however. Sandy is second Cy a shoo-in for his Young Award, annually bestowed on the majors' outstanding pitcher, and that will mean at least some personal appearances. He and Wills also are key candidates for the NL' Most Valuable Player Award and that has a way of taking up a fellow's time also. Such problems turn out to be mighty pleasant ones, though. • Any day now they can change that old baseball adage to read: "Oh, to be young and a member of the Dodgers."

PAUL (UPI)—The 1965 baseball season ended Thursday for the Minnesota Twins when they lost :he seventh game of the World Series to the Los Angeles Dodgers, but Twins' brass waited less than 24 hours before they >egan making plans for 1966. Manager Sam Mele and President Calvin Griffith got together for aibout 45 minutes Friday, in what was supposed to be a salary huddle. But they spent more time talking about the jail club than they did aibout a contract proposal for Mele. "We talked briefly about a contract for me," Mele said. 'Then we discussed trades and personnel' changes, but we didn't decide on anything." It was believed that Mele was Offered a two-year pact at about $45,000 a year and asked for $50,000 a year. He was paid $37,000 each of the *ast two seasons. "He offered me a two-year contract and a raise," said Mele. "I gave him my figure and he gave me his and it's just a matter of getting together.' During the World Series, reports spread that Mele might 36 offered the Chicago White Sox managing job should present Manager Al Lopez retire. It also was rumored the Boston Red Sox were interested hi Mele as general manager to replace Mike Higgins, who was iired several weeks ago. Mele said he had not been approached by any other club since the World Series ended and that he hoped there was no doubt that he would sign with the Twins. Griffith said he didn't believe any other club had contacted Mele "because no one has asked for permission to talk to ivim." "We have begun negotiations and therefore he is still Twins' property even though his con- Tact ended with the conclusion of the World Series," Griffith :aid. "I am going home to think it over," Mele said. "Calvin knew I was anxious to get home so we decided to. talk again later by phone. I don't have to sign :ontract right away anyway.

Unity brought up celibacy. Pope Paul VI had asked the council not to discuss the matter. Cardinal Bea said the decree was good in reaffirming the discipline of a celibate clergy church, but in the western that there were contradictions in the wording. 'Approve Major Declaration A major controversy ended Friday with overwhelming approval- of a declaration saying the Jews ought not to be "rejected by God or accursed." The document, whicn cleared the Jewish people as a whole of responsibility for the crucifixion of Christ, was passed by a final vote of 1,763 to 250. The 2,200 councilmen were debating renewal of the priesthood before adjourning for a week. During the recess, Pope Paul VI will consult national church leaders about a number of matters, changes in including Roman possible Catholic fasting and abstinence rules. The document on priesthood calls on priests to seek a renewal of .their vocations in "the spread of the" Gospel and the dialogue of the church with the modern world." It also urged .that education or the priesthood be brought up to date. Jewish and Protestant leaders as well as liberal councilmen welcomed the outcome of the Jews as history-making, despite changes in the text which some felt weakened - the . document. Vandalism Reported On Sandusky Farm Sheriff Irvin Gidley was called this morning to investigate vandalism on the Orris Elder farm northeast of Sandusky. -Raymond Middendorf, a tenant on the farm, reported vandals caused approximately $50 damage to a large elevator when they turned it over, removed "no-trespassing" signs and removed a gate from a field in which there was cattle. A count was to be made today to determine if any animal was missing. The sheriff said four or five large boulders were also reported found on the nearby railroad tracks. NEW HYMNAL Dr. David M.
