NEW YORK (UPI) - If Bud Wilkinson succeeds with President Kennedy's physical fitness program the way he has rebuilt the Oklahoma Sooners, Sonny Liston will be just another guy. Oklahoma was accorded the nation's No. 1 ranking among col- Marv Woodson of Indiana Midwest Back of Week CHICAGO (UPI) - A triple- threat, 40 - minutes-a-game halfback known simply as "marvelous Marv" on the Indiana University campus today was picked by the United Press International as midwest back of the week. He's Marv Woodson, an ace on offense and defense who has apparently taken up where he left off last season when he wound up as All-Big Ten halfback. Woodson's Hoosiers were beaten 34-21 by Northwestern Saturday, but he easily was the best player on the field. In the first quarter Woodson delayed a touchdown march by backling George Burman after the Northwestern end had scampered 40 yards on a catch of Tom Myers' 15 yard pass. Burman was downed on the eight-yard line. In the third period, with the score tied, Woodson, seemingly coming from nowhere, caught speedy Dick McDauley after he galloped 65 yards toward the Hoosier goal line. Woodson's one- handed tackle brought McCauley down on the 15. That stopped Northwestern and led to Indiana's 80-yard scoring march. Woodson intercepted one touchdown and deflected another into the hands of teammate Tom Now- atzke. He scored one touchdown, gained 67 yards on 15 carries, and returned a kickoff for 58 yards. The Hoosier halfback made a good prophet out of Northwestern coach Ara Parseghian, who said all along that his main worry was Woodson's running. And after it was all over, Parseghian feared that he had underestimated Woodson. "We only hit him solidly once in the whole game," Parseghian said. "His secret is speed, plenty of it. He's one of the few runners I've seen who has the ability to cut without losing speed." Parseghian said Woodson was "outstanding on that kickoff return. We just couldn't get our hands on him." Dickens, accustomed to Woodson's heroics, said simply, "I thought he was the best back on the field by far. He went both ways, offense and defense." Dickens said Woodson was a "fine back last year, but he's going to be better this year because he's older and more improved." INSURANCE Merwya P. Hill Dick William* HOMETOWN SERVICE when you need it.

Christiansen, 34-year-old former defensive star of the Detroit Lions, took over the fortunes of the San Francisco club late Monday after Red Hickey resigned. He has to be a man with a mission to make good with a club that was slaughtered by the Minnesota Vikings, 45-14, on Sunday; had lost all three league games this year; all five exhibition games, plus the final two games of the 1962 season. "I have no definite changes in personnel or playing positions at the present time," said Christiansen. "But we have some good men on this squad if we can get them to play up to their potential. "I feel we should be able to win out share of the games." A few minutes after Christian sen held his first press confer" ence, wherein he wondered about the quarterback situation where John Brodie has a sore throwing arm, who should walk into camp but the veteran Lamar McHan. McHan was obtained from the Baltimore Colts on waivers last week, but was slow in reporting. "He'll be insurance for us in case Brodie's arm continues to bother him," said Christiansen. "Against the Detroit Lions this week we'll use Brodie if he can go. If he can't, we'll try with Bobby Waters. It will take a while for McHan to learn our plays." Christiansen is starting his first tour of duty as head coach. He is rated as one of the all-time best secondary defensive men in the history of the National League. It was at Detroit that he headed his famous "Chris Crew" that ate up passes from opposing teams during the mid fifties. He has been an assistant coach with the Forty Niners since 1959. lege football teams Monday by a landslide ballot in the season's first weekly rating of the United Press International board of coaches. Alabama was a distant second, Texas third and Big Ten representatives Northwestern and Wisconsin rounded out the top five. The Sooners, surging back to the eminence. they enjoyed in 1955 and 1956 when they were national champions, churned out 304 yards on the ground to upset Southern California, the defending national champion, last Saturday. Coach Wilkinson, who heads Kennedy's fitness program, guided the Sooners to No. 7 spot last season after three straight years in which they failed to gain ranking. Oklahoma received 22 first place votes from the 35-man UPI board. Alabama was No. 1 on seven ballots, three coaches picked Texas, and Northwestern, Navy and Pitt polled one each. The Sooners rest next weekend before tackling third-ranked Texas in the Cotton Bowl at Dallas on Oct. 12. Their first win was over Clemson. They last topped the nation on Sept. 30, 1958. With points distributed on a 109-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1 basis for votes from first to 10th places, Oklahoma had 324 out of a possible 350. Alabama had 270 points, Texas 245, Northwestern 182 and Wisconsin 176. Vince Lombardi Concerned About Green Bay's Errors The Oklahoma Sooners, who have gone through a seven-year drought since their last championship team, took over first place by a landslide today in the second Associated Press weekly poll of the nation's Top Ten football teams. Oklahoma, which defeated the 1962 national champion Southern California Trojans Saturday 17-12 in blistering 105-degree heat at Los Angeles, vaulted from third to the No. 1 rating by polling 36 of the 53 first-place votes from a special panel of sports writers and broadcasters. The Trojans, who received 23 first-place votes a week ago, skidded to eighth place. Arkansas, No. 8 last week, dropped out after being defeated by Missouri 7-6. While Alabama remained in the challenging No. 2 spot, and other teams were slightly juggled in the ratings, Mississippi edged back into the picture at the No. 10 spot after blasting Kentucky 31-7. Ole Miss, rated No. 2 in the opening poll, had dropped from the first ten after being held to a scoreless tie by Memphis State. Coach Bud Wilkinson's Okla homans, who ranked No. 8 in the 1962 final season poll, received 495 points in the latest consensus, based on 10 points for first, nine for second, etc. The top ten, with first^place votes in parentheses; Team points l.Oklahoma (36) 495 2 Alabama (9) 402 3.Texas (2) 365 4.

(AP) — Green Bay Coach Vince Lombardi is a puzzled man. He is unable to explain the sudden outbreak of game errors by the Packers as they strive for a third straight National Football League championship. "I can't understand it," Lombardi said Monday in reviewing statistics of the Packers' two victories and one defeat. "We've been a team that has made very few mental and physical mistakes. This year we have had a flock' of them. If we continue like this, it's going to catch up with us. We've been stopping ourselves and this must end." En route to the NFL title with a 13-1 season record last year, the Packers had the fewest passes intercepted — a mere 13 — and lost the ball on fumbles just 15 times. In three games this season, they have surrendered the ball on nine interceptions and five fumbles. Green Bay gave up three fumbles and two pass interceptions Sunday, but managed to pull out a 31-20 victory over Baltimore. Willie Davis, an All-League se lection as a defensive end, said he thought the Packers may be "going into games a little tight." "We're trying to overdo this this thing," Davis said. "We've always been a closely knit team. The mere fact that the offense is experiencing some difficulty means we're just going to have to hang in there tougher. "We've got to feel that they're going to get rolling. It's only a matter of time." The Packers are tied with the Minnesota Vikings, a game be hind Chicago's undefeated Bears, in the Western Division. Lombardi is satisfied with his team's standing — although unhappy with the flock of mistakes by his offense. OLD FRIENDS RETURN—Wendell Stamps and his wife Virginia, arrived Monday afternoon at the Galcsburg Municipal Airport and were greeted by George Bowman, president of the Knoxville High School Lcttcrincn's Association, and a host of friends. Stamps, who coached from 1928 to 1953 at Knoxville High School, is being honored Friday night at the Blue Bullets' homecoming game with Corpus Christ!.

Bill Mecum, 222' game ' Gary Mitcnel l! World Mark Equaled at Roosevelt Raceway WESTBURY, N.Y. (UPI) - A world record was equalled at Roosevelt Raceway Monday night when Flicker Stable's The Premise blazed a mile in 2:01 flat in a co-featured three-year-old Invitational Pace. Del Insko handled the chestnut speedster, a gelding, and the time equalled the world standard for three-year-old pacing geldings on a half-mile track in a race. The mile was also a track and season's standard for age, gait and sex in a race on a half mile oval. The effort materialized when driver John Chapman sent Rex Pick through opening quarters of :30 flat, :59.4 to the half and 1:30.1 at the three-quarters. The Premise was kept snugly in behind Rex Pick until the seven- eighths pole where Insko made the move that carried him directly to the front. The finish saw the Gene Abbe-Speedy Belle sophomore, owned by Sidney and Irving Flicker of Trenton, N.J., comfortable by a length and a half over Rex Pick. The record which was equalled was set by Victory Lind in 1959 at Saratoga Raceway in upstate New York. Howard Parker was the driver on that occasion. CHICAGO (UPI) — Tennessee Bill won his second straight at Washington Park Monday night, taking the featured mile in 2:04.4. He clipped a classy field by a length.
