CAP) — Murray Warmath, drawling native of Humboldt, Term., who is tarting his 10th head coaching eason at the University ot Minnesota, was one of college foot- jail's most hard-nosed realists. It took quite a man to come iack, as Warmath did, from a coach on whose lawn cranks lumped garbage to the hailed mentor who directed the Gophers o successive Rose Bowl appearances after glorious 1960 and 1961 easons, but never lash back at lis vicious critics. Warmath, 50, doesn't boast and doesn't moan. He speaks with lomely phrases at which He often aughs with a mocking cackle. But under it all, it is apparent the Tennessee protege of the late !en. Bob Neyland is a deadly serious realist.

(AP Wire- photo) Gophers Lose 2 3 Vets, Could Be Year of Woe team—which lost 10 starters and 23 lettermen from last year's Big Ten runner-up—Warmath conceded it could be a season of Gopher trial and tribulation. But he certainly didn't throw in the sponge. The Gopher campaign, Warmath indicated, may be divided into two parts. If his squad listing 12 lettermen in which only 248- pound Carl Eller and Capt. Milt Sunde, both tackles, are "real Big Ten caliber players," sur- survives the first three games, Warmath feels the Gophers could make a good Big Ten run. Minnesota meets Nebraska, Army and Northwestern, Big Ten title favorite, in the first three games. Warmath regards the 6-foot-5% Eller as the best football player in the country. Warmath artfully dodged comparison of the graduated All America tackle Bobby Bell and Eller, both Negroes from North Carolina, but asserts: "If Eller has any weakness, I can't find it." The rebuilt Gophers will have a backfield of senior Paul Ramseth at quarterback; two picket sized halfbacks, 148 - pound Bill Crockett and 159-pound Jerry Pel- By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS National League Batting (350 at bats) — Groat, St. Louis, .328; T.

Well-Traveled Rookie Lands On Five Teams NEW YORK (AP)-Nat Craddock, a rookie pro football hopeful from Parsons College in Iowa, spent last week on the roster of five teams in three leagues and two countries. Then he landed with the New York Jets of the American Football League while he was sitting on the bench of the rival Boston club. If the whole thing seems confusing here's the full log: Craddock started the week with the New York Giants of the National Football League. He scored two touchdowns in the exhibition season — the only Giant to do so. So he was cut. The Giants ordered him to Ottawa in the Canadian League but he never reached Ottawa. The Montreal Alouettes claimed they had Canadian League rights to Craddock. While the two clubs argued, Craddock took his first positive step. "I wired Mike Holovak (Boston coach) and told him I wanted to play football," said Craddock. The Patriots, who had AFL draft rights to Craddock, agreed since the loss of Ron Burton due to injury had left them short or running backs. Craddock hardly stayed around long enough to get a pat on the back with the Pats. The Jets, supposed to get firs crack at players cut by NFL teams, came into Boston for a game with the Patriots, found Craddor:k on the bench, and im mediately started ringing tele phones all over the country trying to locate AFL Commissioner Joe Foss. Foss was located in San Diego He ruled Craddock was a Jet. "Nobody told me I could go to the Jets," said Craddock. their pennant clinching drive stalled in a 7-6 loss to Kansas City. The Detroit Tigers swept a doubleheader from the Washington Senators, 1-0 and 10-7, and the Boston Red Sox trimmed the Los Angeles Angels 5-2. In the National League, the St. Louis Cardinals closed to within three games of idle Los Angeles by defeating the Chicago Cubs 6-0. Milwaukee took Cincinnati twice, 9-2 and 7-4, and the New York Mets whipped the Philadelphia Phils 6-3, in the only games scheduled. Hall's two homers ran his batting average to .266—not bad in a league where .284 gets you into the top ten—and his RBI total to Wisconsin Loses 2-Year Letterman letter; and fullback Jay Sharp. Warmath conceded that Fred Farthing, a 197-pound "diaming in the rough" could replace Pelletiei and Mike Reid, the No. 1 placement kicker and most improved man on the squad, could take over at fullback. 6 Illinoisans In Amateurs DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) Eight Illinois residents have ad vanced to second round play o the U.S. Amateur Golf champion ships.
