NO GAMES IN BIG TEN CHICAGO (AP)-AU Big Ten football games were called off Saturday because of the death of President John F. Kennedy. The Illinois at Michigan State game to decide the Big Ten title and Rose Bowl representative was rescheduled for Thanksgiving Day. So was the Wisconsin at Minnesota contest, which was to have been regionally televised. The Ohio State at Michigan game, as well as Illinois-MSU, was not postponed until Saturday morning. Michigan athletic director Fritz Crisler said the game would be played next Saturday. The traditional Old Oaken Bucket game between Purdue and Indiana at Bloomington, Ind. was postponed until then also. The Notre Dame at Iowa game was cancelled. , - , 1 i .. t, . . - , I ' "v--. . ' 4f' r -I f Coach Recalls Gridder Kennedy Kennedy as Prepster WALLINGFORD, Conn. (AP) "He was not an All-America by any means," said President Kennedy's prep school football coach. "But he made up for lack of native ability with great determination." ,Earl Lienbach, who was young Jack Kennedy's housemaster as well as his football coach at Choate School, described the youngster he remembered as "never at a loss for words . . . always a boy who had the courage of his convictions." "He was light for a football player but he was a typical Irishman as far as fight was concerned," Leinbach said. Kennedy was picked "Most Likely to Succeed" by his fellow members of the class of 1935. This although he was not an outstanding student, never held a class office, and, as Leinbach ! noted, was not a superior athlete. I Yet, "Even as a youngster," Leinbach said, "he had the I courage of his convictions and if he thought he was right, he stood up for them with all his might. J "A lot of people have asked me if I thought he would be- jcome President and 1 must say that I never thought he would. J But he was voted the boy most likely to succeed by his class- j mates. ! On the wall behind Leinbach was a photograph of the late President with the inscription, "To 'Cappy' Leinbach. With best wishes and regards, Jack ! Kennedy." Kyi ; i rv : f V v 1 I V .4 A . . . Anil as PiU-her BELLINO SHOCKED PALO ALTO, Calif. (AP)-Former All-America Joe Bellinno of Navy, who twice sat in President Kennedy's office chatting about football, "still can't believe" the President is dead. Bcllino's first visit with the President came in early 1961 "when he invited four members of the Navy football team to visit him. "We talked about football and I was surprised how much he knew about the game. I thought I was pretty good with names of former stars, but he stumped me. He could recall players at Notre Dame and many other schools. He really knew sports and was interested." "His death was a shock to me," Lt. J.Ci. Bellino said Saturday in Palo Alto where he is visiting relatives before going to Japan. "I still can't believe it. I have the greatest respect for him."

"I think almost everybody on the squad felt the postponement was the right thing to do," said Elliott." These boys all understood it and felt that in the face of this terrible, unbelieve-able thing that football at the moment had no proper place in the national condition. The somewhat subdued Spartans worked out on the dirt floor of the intramural building watched by several hundred fans who wandered in from the adjacent stadium which had been expected to be filled by an expected 76,000 fans. 4,000 Fans Illinois Athletic Director Doug Mills estimated about 4,000 mini fans had made the futile trip to East Lansing.

The newspaper said the postponement of the entire American Football League's Sunday schedule in memory of the late president was 'a factor in the criticism." The Timet said it received scores of telephone calls about the St. Louis at New York game at Yankee Stadium. It said "a highly vocal minority of the callers said they were shocked, aghast, upset, ashamed or horrified that the game should go on." "On the other hand," the Times said, "several clubs, including the Giants, reported increased demand for tickets, long sold out in the) case of the Giants because of this weekend's television and radio shutdown on sports." The Times quoted a caller from Wilmington, Del.: "I have just torn up my tickets for the Kagles-Redskins game" at Philadelphia. In Pittsburgh, the Times said, "thc office of the Steclers was bombarded with calls in similar ve'n. One caller threatened to picket Forbes Field if the game with the Bears was played." Pete Rozelle. Commissioner of thc NFL, had said earlier that thc decision to fjo ahead was because "it has been traditional in sports for athletes to perform in times of great personal tragedy. Football was Mr. Kennedy's game, lie thrived on competition."
