Jimmy Brown Runs Wild as Cleveland Defeats Giants Rugged Sam Huff Praises Fullback Ditka Leads Bears CHICAGO (AP)—The Chicago Bears made it D-day against the Los Angeles Rams. Mike Ditka snared four touchdown passes and the Bears romped to a 52-14 victory before 40,476 in Memorial Coliseum Sunday. It was unbeaten Chicago's fifth straight National Football League victory this season and kept the Hams winless in five starts. Ex-Ram Bill Wade hit Ditka on scoring pitches of 13, 25 and 27 yards in the first half.

"I'm the same guy," Brown said Sunday after Cleveland's 35-24 victory over the New York Giants. "The team is different, — | especially in attitude. It's the Wright Can't Go Wrong In Tourney j LAS VEGAS, Nev. (UPI)The only trouble with the ladies PGA tour is the fact there isn't much competition around for San Diego's great athlete, Mickey Wright. Miss Wright, as expected, wrapped up the $16,500 ladies' PGA championship at the Stardust course Sunday by coming from three strokes off the pace to win going away with a two- shot margin. The victory did these things for the 28-year-old star's record: —Brought her $2,450 and boosted her earnings for this year to an all-time record of $26,600. —Set an all-time record for wins by PGA woman at 52. —Was her 13th victory out of 24 starts this year —Gave her the PGA crown for the fourth time in the nine years it has been contested. She had a 72-hole score of 294 on the Stardust course that has a par of 284. Tied for second place were National Open champion Mary Mills, Mary Lena Faulk and Louise Suggs, each with 296s, good for $1,533.33. Ruth Jessen, who set a course record of 67 on Friday, came next with 298 and collected $1,030. Two-Timers EAST LANSING, Mich.

"You don't just do your job and then sit down and wait for the movies and say 'Well I did what I was supposed to do.' Now you make suggestions, you participate. It is more like a family." Jimmy didn't mention Paul Brown, his old coach, by name. He did point out that Blanton Collier, his new coach, gave him new freedom of decision. "I like to run outside and I like to run inside," he said. "And I like the two-way go (option). I never had that before. Now I'm not just a fullback who just hits up the middle." Brown ripped the proud Giants' defense to shreds Sunday afternoon, gaining 123 yards on 23 carries and 86 more on four pass catches for a total of 209. Because the league statisticians call a screen pass a passing play and not a run, Brown must wait another week to top the National Football League's all time rushing record. He has 8,246. Joe Perry of San Francisco went into Sunday's game with Baltimore with a record 8,296 yards. Rudy Bukich speared him for a 14-yard TD in the fourth peri od. Bukich also rifled a 17-yard payoff pass to John Farrington as the Bears ran up their high est point total ever against the Rams. Other Bear touchdowns were by Benny McRae on a 35-yard runback of a pass interception, and a smash from the 2 by Wil lie Galimore. Roger Leclerc added a 31-yard field goal. The Bears, who invade San Francisco Sunday before returning home to face the Philadel phia Eagles, stole six passes, re covered two fumbles and made good on 20 of 30 aerials. Los Angeles scored on a 10- yard toss by Zeke Bratkowski after recovering a Galimore fumble, and on a four-yard smash by Dick Bass. Bass' TD was set up on rookie Terry Bak er's 49-yard completion to Car roll Dale that carried to the Bear 11. : For CASH LOANS f I Current Needs | I How Top 10 Teams Fared By The Associated Press Here's how the Top Ten college football teams in The Associated Press poll fared last weekend: 1.

READ THE CLASSIFIEDS! Howe Close To Coveted NHL Goal By The Associated Press Tireless Gordie Howe, hockey's answer to Stan Musial, has moved to within one goal of one of the National Hockey League's most cherished records. The 35-yeslr-old winger for the Detroit Red Wings scored his third goal of the season Sunday night in Detroit's 3-0 blanking of Boston. It was his 543rd in regular season play and left him just one short of Rockey Richard's lifetime mark. Chicago beat the Toronto Maple Leafs 4-2 in the only other Sunday game and took over a share of the lead with Detroit, each with four points. In Saturday games, Montreal blasted New York 6-2 and Toronto crushed Boston 5-1. Howe, now in his 18th season in the NHL and the defending scoring champion, opened with two goals in the first game and put the puck in the net twice Sunday. One of them, however, was disallowed. Howe's goal that did count came in the third period when he bounced a shot off a Boston player. W L T Pts.

A one-man Mr. Inside and Mr. Outside, Brown dove one yard for the first Browns' touchdown, took a screen pass 72 yards for the touchdown that put Cleveland ahead to stay and wound up his performance with a 32 yard scoring run. The former Syracuse All America and NFL rushing rec ord-holder gained 123 in 23 car ries on the ground and grabbed four passes for an additional 36 yards. With only five games on the 14-game NFL schedule completed, Brown is threatening his own one-season ground-gaining record of 1,527 yards, set in 1958; Joe Perry's career record of 8, 280 yards gained, in 14 seasons; and Jim Taylor's one-season touchdown record of 19, set last year. Brown, in his seventh season, has gained 787 yards this season —an amazing 7.8 average—8,230 career yards and has scored 10 touchdowns this year. The Browns' victory main tained their one-game hold on the Eastern Conference lead. St Louis slipped into second with a 24*23 decision over Pittsburgh on Charlie Johnson's 28-yard pass to Bobby Joe Conrad with five seconds remaining and Jim Bakken's conversion. The Chicago Bears remained the NFL's only other unbeaten team, crushing the Los Angeles Rams 52-14 as Mike Ditka grabbed four touchdown passes. Green Bay's defending league champion Packers remained one game back in the Western Conference race with a 37-28 decision over Minnesota. Sonny Jurgensen's four touchdown passes carried Philadelphia to a 37-24 triumph over Washington, Dallas whipped Detroit 17-14 for its first victory and Baltimore defeated San Francisco 20-3.

Dry Socks Help NASHVILLE, Term. (AP) - A "sock hop" interrupts Vanderbilt University football practice once each day but it's no teen-age dance fad. It's the brainstorm of Trainer Joe Worden who thanks a change to fresh socks during the workout will cut down on blisters which became a problem during spring practice. He thinks it might help morale and playing too. "Dry socks should give them a little lift out there," says Worden. Green Bay Coach Did Not Panic MINNEAPOLIS - ST. PAUL (AP)—Vince Lombardi Is either a ereat actor or a verv cool football coach. He's probably part of each. He refused to admit to even the slightest degree of panic on Sunday after his Green Bay Packers had teetered on the edge of defeat only to turn up a great clutch defensive play by Herb Adderley and beat the Minnesota Vikings 37-28. "I didn't figure we'd lose even if they kicked that field goal," Lombardi said. "If they were going to score, I just wanted them to do it quickly so we would have time to come back. We would have had time." As it was, the Packers, who are now 4-1 to trail the unbeaten Chicago Bears in the Western Conference of the National Football League, didn't need any more time. Adderley shot in from the side as Fred Cox tried to boot a 10- yard field goal with two minutes remaining. That would have given the Vikings a 31-30 lead. Adderley dived for the ball, and blocked it with his face mask. The ball bounced back to the Green Bay 20-yard line, where Hank Gremminger picked it up and raced 80 yards for a touchdown.

Name Age- Street — Phone City - - State urged the hunters to be particularly alert during the fall and winter months in detecting and reporting forest and farm field fires to the proper authorities. The alertness of reporting fires and the carefulness of handling incendiaries is the best insurance a hunter can give to protect the wildlife crop and to help maintain an annual har- vestable surplus of game birds and animals, Lodge said. He stated that many tenant farmers and landowners are blaming the hunter as the direct cause for the fires, while a forestry report indicated that the landowners and tenant farmers themselves are responsible for at least 60 per cent of the fire loss. Last year 311 fires were reported to the forestry division, were destroyed, a loss estimat- ers, 72 were of a malicious, incendiary nature, 22 from machine use, 23 were caused by smokers throwing cigarettes, pipe ashes from cars and by hikers through forest areas, and 33 were miscellaneous fires, which included the fires caused by the hunter. Last year, 10,392 acres of farm fields and forest lands wer edestroyed, a loss estimated at $250,000. This dollar loss does not include the mineral loss, erosion to the soil and wildlife population and habitat. Rehabilitation of wildlife habitat and populations takes several years to establish and is a costly process. With the falling of deciduous tree leaves, the burning of farm crop residue and the lack of rainfall throughout the state, the fire danger is increasing daily, Lodge said. Constant air patrol and ground vehicle patrol is being utilized in an attempt to suppress the fires before they can spread. ATLANTA (AP) - Will Great Britain, where golf got its start, ever regain its position as the world's golf leader from the United States? It doesn't seem likely in the wake of the American team's sweeping 23-9 victory in the 15th biennial Ryder Cup competition between the two countries. The U.S. team, called invinci­ ble by its proud captain Arnold Palmer, shook off morning dol drums each day in the three day match. Britain tied the Yanks 8-8 in the morning matches, but lost the afternoon contests 15-1. The lone British point in the after noon matches came on two draws, with the U.S. winning the rest. Palmer said he thought the Abner Haynes Injury Hurts Kansas City in AFL Play By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Abner Haynes has a sprained back that's breaking Kansas City's in the American Football League. Buffalo handed the defending league champions their latest setback Sunday as Jack Kemp unloaded touchdown heaves of 63 and 89 yards in the last half' for a 35-26 victory that lowered the Chiefs' record to a lukewarm 2-2-1. The Chiefs' inability to get rolling can be laid directly on Haynes' sprained back. Without the colorful speedster, Kansas City is left without the long distance running threat to complement the passing of Len Dawson. The AFL's second leading rusher with 1,049 yards last year and its leading touchdown producer with 19, Haynes was kept out of the starting line-up against the Bills for the first time since late in the 1961 season. He showed only flashes of his old form when he got into action. On nine rushes, Haynes gained only 33 yards, scoring one touchdown on a four-yard run. He has carried 58 times in the Chief's five games and gained 141 yards — an average of less than 2Vt yards a try — while being limited to two TDs. San Diego's Chargers increased their Western Division lead over the second-place Chiefs as John Hadl directed three second half drives for a 24-20 victory over the New York Jets, leaders in the Eastern sector. The Chargers have a 4-1 record, the Jets 3-2. George Blanda had bis band or foot in 25 of Houston's points in a 33-24 triumph over Denver that left the Oilers tied with Boston at 3-3 for the runnerup spot in the East.

"On Sunday it was windy and the small ball favored them," he said. "But over-all in the three days the big ball was superior." Palmer said the tournament was the best Ryder Cup match he had been in from the standpoint of cooperation. "I'm tremendously proud of all our guys," he said. "For example, Johnny Pott wasn't playing well and he asked to be benched. That's real cooperation." The 1963 PGA top money winner suggested that 36 holes a day for three days is too much golf. "I think it would be better if they spread it out over four days," he said. This year the tournament, played at East Lake Country Club where golf's immortal Bobby Jones got his start, introduced the Scotch foursome matches for the first time. In this type of match, each player on the team hits alternate shots on each hole. The British startled the Americans by defeating Palmer in the opening match on Friday. Brian Huggett and George Will beat Palmer and Pott, 3-2, in a Scotch foursome. Palmer, who teamed with Dow Finsterwald for two victories on Saturday, lost to Englishman Peter Alliss in a morning match Sunday. Billy Casper was the big American winner, figuring in four victories.
