JfOWDAT, UCXJCM.BBK M, Early Upsets to Shuffle College Cage Ratings »*#* #*¥* Half of Top Ten Teams Defeated ARKANSAS OUTDOORS By JOE REICHLER The Assaclated Pres» The betting today is that no college basketball team will go through the season with fewer than two or three defeats. The campaign'is less than two weeks old and already teams tapped for outstanding court seasons have been dumped unceremoniously from the unbeaten class. -— * Exactly hall of the top 10 teams in the Associated Press' preseason poll bit the dust for the first time Saturday. They were Duquesne (No. 3), Iowa (No. 4), Holy Cross (No. 5), Niagara (No. 8) and Notre Dame (No. 9). Indiana (No. 6) was beaten earlier in the week. In addition, nth-ranked Oklahoma A&M was knocked off as were mh-rated St.Louis, perennially powerful Western Kentucky, North Carolina, Fordham, Army, Texas Christian and San Francisco. Duke, Penn State, Wake Forest and Kansas State also have been beaten. Top Two Unbeaten La Salle and Kentucky, one-two in last week's AP poll, still were among the unbeatens but not before they were handed real, honesfc- to-goodness scares. The Explorers, behind from the opening -whistle, were forced into overtime before \A * Arkansas Game, Commfssfon Second Deer Season Puts State's Wildlife Under Strain This Week LITTLE ROCK — Arkansas' wildlife will be under a. terrific amount of gun pressure this week with the second period deer season adding to the small game seasons on duck, quail, rabbit and squirrel, all of which will be in progress at the same time. At no other time of the year will there, be so many "city folks" out in the rural areas, tramping about in the fields and woods and along our waterways. Since no one else is so directly concerned with this annual invasion than the farmers of the state, it would be interesting to learn what their reactions are to this onslaught. A representative sample of farmers were queried on this subject recently, and their answers probably reflect a general attitude. What's The Answer? Here's the question as presented to the farmers: "The hunting season finds thousands of people tramping through the woods and fields. How,do you feel about hunters using your farm? Check the answer closest to your opinion." 1. I don't care if they hunt on my place. They are welcome. (6%) 2. I don't mind their hunting. I want them to ask permission first. (76%) 3. I would rather people did not hunt on my place. It is too danger• ous, and they are careless of gates and fences. (13%) 4. I absolutely forbid hunting on my place. (5%) Four out of five farmers are •willing to let hunters on their farms. But nearly all of these specified "Ask permission first." Less than one in five (18%) dislike or won't allow hunting on their farms. And note that about three out of four farmers allow hunting provided permission is asked. Other Pacts Some other facts were gleaned from the questionnaires. Most farmers want to know who is hunting on their farm. One said, "I get pretty tired of the way hunters take possession of my fields without asking permission." Said another, "If people will ask permission to hunt, it is okay. But I am against city people going on a farm without asking." Possible damage to fences and livestock worried many farmers. One of those who now refuses any hunting permission cited the loss of two fat cattle to hunters. Another complaint was that of the farmer who said: "Some people never get out with a gun and don't know how to handle one when the bird season opens." But most seem to agree with the farmer who said: "I don't care if they hunt as long as they don't destroy anything and close the gates." Arkansas hunters might paste that statement on their gun stocks. In 1948 Rocky Marclano had 11 fights and won all by knockouts, eight of them In the first round. out Niagara. It 76-75 victory over took a desperation shot by Bob Maples with only six seconds left for La Salle to register its fourth triumph. Kentucky had its toughest game since it last was beaten, by St. John's in 1952, edging Xavier of Ohio 73-69 for' its 27th straight. The Wildcats led by only 70-69 with less than a minute remaining. Dayton and North Carolina State, ranked seventh and 10th respectively in the AP poll, Improved their prospects with resounding victories. The Flyers of Ohio won their fourth in a row, burying Bowling Green 109-39, and the Wolfpack notched their fifth straight with a 66-53 win over Eastern Kentucky. The biggest shock was George Washington's 71-64 annual Steel Bowl triumph over Duquesne, which admittedly was handicapped by the absence of Si Green, its spectacular scorer. Green was out with an attack of appendicitis. Joe Holup led the Colonials with 26 points. Iowa's 97-94 loss to Missouri also came as a surprise since the Hawkeyes are favored to capture the Big Ten title.

(NBA), Sports Roundup— Is Rocky Marciano Eating His Way Out of Championship? By OAYLE TALBOT • NEW YORK (AP) — Months of trouping around the country, making personal appearances and laying it in at the banquet table, have hoisted Rocky Marciano's weight up to 200 pounds heaviest the champion has scaled since he began his career seven years ago. He notched only 187 for his title defense' against Ezzard Charles last September. Olson Defends Title Wednesday Night Middleweight King to Fight Langlois at San Francisco By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Bobo Olson risks his "Fighter of the Year" fame as weB as his world middleweight title when he defends against France's Pierre Langlois Wednesday at San Francisco. Olson, of course, still would be "Youth Program" tonight (Do- honored as 'the outstanding boxer of the ycnr. win or lose, but a de- mont-TV) with a pair of 22-year- old lightweights in the main event.

As Bobo Is n -1 to 1 favorite to turn back the French challen- knocked out Dickie Wong and ger, he may not be taking too whipped Bobby Sickle, former much of a gamble. Still, Langlois is a rugged import with an unorthodox style who can trouble anybody. This will be Olson's third defense of the championship he nailed down by defeating Britain's Randy Turpin last year. He whipped Kid Gavlinn at Chicago last spring and got off the. floor to outpoint Rocky Castellanl at San Francisco Aug. 20. The bout will be carried on network television (CBS). Bob Baker and Coley Wallace, the two heavyweights whose Oct. 1 battle in Cleveland was lost In the World Series excitement, meet again Frld\y at Madison Square Garden (NBC-radio TV).

In the prellmtnar bouts Averoff is slated to take on Welch with Keene meeting McGee. There are keen observers who manager, will never consent to a predict that Eocky, a notable eater in any company. will shorten his tenure considerably unless he fights twice a year and sticks to the long training sieges he has endured up to now. They don't think the Brockton Buster is gaited for any extended inaction. Whom he will fight next, and where, we are not in position to make an enlightened guess. Rocky said in a recent Interview he might defend on the West Coast next March, but he probably was just making talk. Insiders are convinced that Al Welll, the champ's champion, whipped Notre Dame 73-70 Saturday to hand the Irish their first home defeat since February 1952. Holy Cross, rated one of the best teams In the East, was rocked by St. John's of Brooklyn, blowing a 35-33 halftime lead to bow 93-73. Oklahoma's Aggies suffered their first loss at the hands of Illinois 59-53. to ROSE SALE CO.'s ANNUAL • Office Equipment • Furniture • Wearing Apparel • Kitchen Ware • Stoves • Store Counters • Roofing • Radios • Christmas Gifts by the thousands JUST TO NAME A FEW!

In his column he tells of the Columbus lady who, wishing to be helpful, wrote to the Philadelphia Phils, that there were a couple of high school graduates in her city who looked like fine prospects. She suggested that the Phils have one ol their scouU look them over. In due time she received their reply: "You may T>e sure we appreciate your recommending to us the two players.
