Cutter Gossip '.... by PHIL Having trouble with a 10 pin that seems anchored down? At times the right -hand corner hardwood acts as if it doesn 't belong down there. If that is your personal opinion you 're absolutely correct -the 10th pin in bowling Is a misfit. A necessary evil, agreed, but a Johnny-come* lately troublemaker. Back in 1628 when the Dutch introduced the game to America (and when Cass Anderson bought his first second-hand ball), bowlers had to contend with but nine pins. Early keglers failed to note whether this setup made the game any easier or agreeable. Being acquainted with the moods of today's pins, however, I'd venture to say that our ancestors had difficulties with one of their ancestors. A twist in terminology and a smattering of colloquial speech was probably the only difference. Instead of "tapped by that (censored) 10 pin again," our bowling forerunners might have come forth with a "my sympa thies, Hendrik, I fear number nine wood has defied thee once more." Both exclamations get the point across. The change was brought about when gamblers moved in on the sport and it was outlawed by the Puritans. A dastardly deed, although there are evenings when I'd be inclined to give my whole-hearted support to such a ruling. To sidestep the law, a 10th pin was added and the arrangement of pins was changed from a diamond to a triangular setup — thus the game today.

Robert Swegart led the way with a 236 while Amos Cadwell opened up with a 230 on his way to a 632 series. Art Stone stroked a 223 and Bill Mecum disposed of the 4-6-7-10 Nemesis for a spare. This is the third such "Big 4" conversion reported this season —what's the secret? Also breaking the 200 barrier were Robert Bennett, Walt Baars, Earl Riddell, Harold Sherwood, L y 1 e Thompson, Dean Fay, Gene Greenburg.

(AP)Competition for places on the Rockbusters football team is fierce. The team, made up of inmates of the Colorado penitentiary, opens the season Nov. 2 against the Western State College junior varsity at Hickey Field in Canon City. It will be the first game in history outside the gates for the Rockbusters. tent one-two quarterback punch well supplemented by the running of sophomores Jim Grabowski and Sam Price and the power thrusts of fullback Al Wheatland. Illinois will have to set up two defenses for Minnesota. The Gophers have a passing threat at all times when Bob Sadek is at quarterback and were impressive against Northwestern when Larry Peterson took over and marched them 75 yards to a touchdown on the ground and then ran for two points and an 8-7 lead. Northwestern Coach Ara Parseghian, having met both clubs, said both are strong on defense and the game figures to be a tossup. "Illinois must be prepared to switch its defenses depending on whether Sadek or Peterson are quarterbacking Minnesota," said Parseghian. "I have always been a great admirer of Murray Warmath's defenses and Illinois will have to go hard to score on the Gophers. It should be a great football game." Alston Receives Honor ST.
