EVENING Football Schedule CAftBONDAtfc — thoughts ol aft 6atly-»eaao« engagement with Mld-Aftifeweaii Conference champ- loti fiawllftg Gteen are primarl- jy responsible for Coach Carmen Plcctme'fi harsh instructions which accompanied fall practice invita- tlotis sent tills week to 54 mem- bets of Southern Illinois -University's varsity football squad, The Safukis, who dipped to a 4-6 record last season In their first crack at an Independent schedule, face an even tougher line of opponents this year with Bowllrtg Green only otie of five major clubs on their ID-game card. "With Bowling Oreon com- Ing titt w oftrly In the season (Sept, 28)," Plceono said, "wo'fo not going to have ttme for such preliminaries as onl- Istlionlcs. Hint moans It In Im- porallvo plnyorn who expect to make our traveling squad report In exceptionally good condition." SIU will launch drills Sept. 1 with Its opener scheduled for three weeks later at Evaasvllle, Lid. In addition to Bowling Green, the Salukls will meet Toledo of the MAC and defending litllst Tulsn, North Texas Slate and Louisville of the Missouri Valley Conference as well ns college-division opponents Northern Michigan, North Dakota State, Evans- vllle and Lincoln University and Fort Campbell, a standout service team. Loss of several key linemen, who figured prominently In two successive league championships won by SIU while still a member of the Interstate Conference, has resulted In Plccono's shifting to a pro-typo offense this season. However, the former Temple quarterback, who Is In his fifth year, Is still searching for a dependable passing combination. Despite the presence of 25 let- ternicn, only one, Dave Harris, has previous experience at the quarterback position and the wing posts also figure to be somewhat of a problem.

Big Ten Teams Looking For Revenge This Year By FRANK fcCK At* NcttsteatilffiS Sports Rdltor The Big Ten Is looking to regain Its football mastery over Pacific Coast (cams this fall. And It's In a good spot to succeed since five of the eight intersectional clashes will be played on Big Ten fields. Only trouble is that Southern California, ranked No. 1 last year, will invade two Western Conference stadia. Hie unbeaten and untied Trojans will visit East Lansing on Oct. 5 to play Michigan State for the first time. Two weeks later they will be In Columbus to take on Ohio State. The Buckeyes hold a 6-4-1 edge In the series. Last ycnr the Dig Ten was pretty much of a bust against Fur West elevens, winning only two of JO games played. That Includes Southern Cal's 43-37 Hose Bowl victory over Wisconsin. Only Ohio Stale and Iowa turned in victories for the Big Ten. Ohio Stale beat Oregon, 26 7, and Iowa trimmed Oregon Stale 28-8. Possibly Ihe Far West colle glans ought to worry more about Eastern football. Lasl year only seven points prevented the East from sweeping all five games against the coasl elevens. South ern Cal beat Navy, 13-7. But Pitt beat California, 26-24, and UCLA, Football Season Grabs Headlines in Papers 6; Penn State look California in amp, 23-21 and Syracuse hum- od UCLA, 12-7. Navy meets no Far West elev- n this fall but Army entertains /ashington Stale for the first me at West Point on Oct. 26. it plays Its first three games [ the season against UCLA, 'aslilnglon and California. Penn late has games with Oregon and 'CLA while Syracuse meets 'CLA and Oregon Stale. Syra- use has a 2-0 series record gainst both coast rivals. Illinois, Indiana and Iowa each lay two Far West teams tills all. Ono of the most uniimitil schedules Involves the University of Miami. Of their JO games, the Hurricanes play seven In Florida. Miami doesn't see daylight un- 1 Nov. 2 when Andy Gustafson's quad visits Kentucky. And their nly daylighl appearance in Ihe Orange Bowl comes on Dec. 7 galnsl Alabama in their final ame. The schedule of Hardin-Simions of Abilene, Texas appears o have a deemphasis tinge. The Cowboys play only two major chools, Wichita and New Mexi- o State. They won one game oul f 10 last year. Harvard has an odd schedule. The Crimson plays five home games before they make their longest road trip of the year — to I'lilludclplilu for the annual I'rnii Test. And Arizona State is the only major team playing all ten games under floodlights. NEW YORK (AP)—Pro football enthusiasm is moving into baseball's long season, and grabbing off it's sports page space, too. It would seem, therefore, thai Ihe time lias come to subject the football officials to -those same old queslions that are annually thrown at the men who run baseball. The questions will be the same, but the answers might be entirely different Lei's sel up an imaginary in- lervicw between a reporter for the Football Bible and Pete -'Rozelle, the commissioner of the National Football League, just to see how tilings might come out: Interviewer: Commissioner, do you expect close pennant' races this season?' Rozelle: I'd sure like to have a runaway race just one time. These tight-races are bad on my heart. Q: What, about the old tradition that the team in front on Veteran's Day will win the flag? A: Gee, I never though! of that. You might have, something, there. I'll have to look it up. Q: Any predictions? A: I suppose when it's all over I'll wind up silling in lhat ice box in Green Bay again for Ihe playoff game. II look me a monlh to get over the cold I caught there in 1961. Q: Commissioner, do you think the foolball season runs too long? A: Well, we had 83,000 in Au gusl al Cleveland for an exhibition doubleheader. That's about twice what the baseball Ail-Star game drew in the same park. And we sold the TV rights lo ihe playoff in December for about a million bucks. Somebody musl think it's not too long. Q: Are you planning any franchise shifts: A: Philadelphia was our last- place club last year, and Iheir season lickel sale 'is only up 4,000 this year. It might nol go much over 47,000. You naturally slart to think when a situation like thai develops. Q: Do you plan to enlarge the end zone to make a bigger target for the passers? A: We're more interested in enlarging the stands. Q: How about reports lhat the ball is livelier? A: Thai's true. We used to buy all our footballs from' a little old lady in New Jersey who grew her own pigs. But you couldnt' pass or kick the darn things. So we changed the shape, size, weigh and material. Otherwise it is the same ball used by Pudge Heffle finger. Q: Db^you anticipate any gam bling scandals? A: I'll make book lhat there will be no more belling • in oui league.

But the big bats of the Giants took charge and shackled Gibson (14-8) with the loss. Gibson went the distance and allowed only six hits. Ellswortti Seeks 19tl CHICAGO (AP) - Left-hander Dick Ellsworth will try to become the first Chicago Cubs' pitcher in 21 years to win 19 ballgames When the Cubs face the Philadelphia Phillies in Wrlgtoy Field today. The 23-year-old Ellsworth (18-7) needs only one triumph to lie the 1942 total of 19 wins recorded by Claude Pnsseau. Passeau lost 14 in 1912. Ellsworth also is within hailing distance of becoming the first 20- game winner since Passeau won 20 and lost 13 in 1940. Ellsworth will face right-hander John Boozer f2-2). The Cubs also will be trying to win the rubber game of the three- gamp spf. The Phillies used a 15- hit attack to drop the Cubs 8-7 Wednesday.
