Choose Sides in Iowa Feud- I Club Backs Evy; Board Behind Brechler DES MOINES (AP)—Iowa fans pnd officials have befjun to choose sides in the long-smouldering fend between the top (wo men in the Hawkeyes' athletic department. The reported clash between football Coach Forest Evashevski and Athletic Director Paul Brechler was fanned into a blazing controversy over the weekend. Evashevski said Friday he will leave Iowa when his contract expires in 1963, and has indicated he would examine all offers before that date. Brechler Saturday was asked to resign by some members of the "I" Club, a group of alumni and fans that raises funds for athletic scholarships. Board Backs Brechler Sunday the Athletic Board stepped into the scrap when Chairman George Eastman said "obviously I board has hacked Paul Hi-pchirr. The fact that he's still employed means that." The board recommends the hiring or firing of an athletic director to State University of Iowa President Virgil M. Hancher. Before appearing on a television program conducted by Al Coupee, president of the "I" Club, Evashevski said "I have no intention of leaving Iowa before the expiration of my contract." The successful Hawkeyc coach later said "I'm still the coach, and as long as I'm there I pledge that myself and my staff will de- vole every ounce of energy we have to coaching and producing the best football possible at the State University of Iowa." Fend Flared Friday The feud between Evashevski ond Brechler was reported many times in the past, and flared anew last Friday when Brechler said he had turned down an offer to become athletic director at Pittsburgh, A f«w hours later Evashevski gave notice. The "I" Club's demand that Brechler resign was announced Saturday morning before Iowa was beaten by Northwestern 1410. The group's resolution asked for Brechler's resignation by Dec. 31. The resolution was approved by a 60-17 vote of the 150 persons at the club's annual meeting. Time* Herald. Carroll, la. Monday, October 5, 1959 Brechler later told friends "I will not resign" but neither he nor Evashevski has made public any statement about the ouster demand. Some Members Unhappy Some "I" Club members were unhappy with the move. John Sunstrum of Osakloosa, a former president of the club, said "we're not a bit happy with the action of the 77 club members at Iowa City. How can they speak for 6,000 club members?" Several other members said the action was taken too quickly. But one said 'it has gotten down to a question of who shall re- main, the athletic director or the coach. The thinking of this group is that the athletic director is expendable and the coach is not." Before the ouster vote was taken, Brechler addressed the group. He said he thought Evashevski is the best coach in the country. Brechler has been athletic director for 12 years, and hired Evashevski in 1952. Since then Iowa lias won 40 games, lost 23 and tied four. Iowa's 1956 and 1958 teams won Big Ten and Rose Bowl championships. Conference Champions During Brechler's service Iowa's basketball team won the conference championship, and so did the wresting and tennis squad. The stadium was enlarged under Brechler, and new practice fields were built, a track stadium was constructed, an 18-hole golf course was installed and a press box was built on the football stadium. Little things have been blamed for the friction between the two. although some Iowa officials say the clash is a personality conflict between two highly-successful 'executives.

Sox Rely on Early Wynn- Trail 2-7 In Series By ED WILKS Associated Press Sports Writer LOS ANGELES (AP)—Chicago's go-go White Sox, still running, but running second, turned back to old guy Early Wynn for today's fourth World Series game against the Los Angeles Dodgers, who have a 2-1 edge. The Dodgers, now 2-1 favorites to win the world championship after taking Sunday's game 3-1 before a series record crowd of 92-294, are favored at 6-5 for the fourth game behind Roger Craig, the right-hander Wynn beat 11-0 in the opener at Chicago. Wynn, who had to leave in the eighth inning of that game when his elbow stiffened, is one of the toughest clutch pitchers in the business. He's the right-hander even New York Yankee manager Casey Stengel "would have to pitch if I wanted to win one game." And that's what the Sox need after blowing chances in every inning Sunday against winner Don Drysdale and reliever Larry Sherry, who put away straight series save. his second Only two clubs — the 1925 Pitts- burghs against Washington, and last year's Yankees against Milwaukee ever have become world champions after losing three of the first four in a seven-game series. That's the task the Sox would face with another loss today. "I still think we gotta chance," said manager Al Lopez. "We've been doing things the hard way all year on this club, and we might as well end it that way." Cautions on Base Lopez shrugged when asked whether he still intends to try go- going in this park. Balls hit off the nearby left field screen plunge frighteningly fast into the fielder's glove. The White Sox, warned that the Dodgers throw out quite a few runners at second here, didn't try for doubles on shots to the screen. "We didn't run any different Sunday than we always do," said Lopez, whose Sox have stolen just one base in four tries against Dodger catcher John , Roseboro. That lone steal came in Sunday's second without drawing a throw from Roseboro, who was watching Nellie Fox, the runner at third. The Dodgers are 3-3 in steal attempts against Chicago catcher Sherm Lollar, but didn't try any Sunday. Pilots Praise Roseboro 'That Roseboro's okay," said first inning. Jim Landis slid into cio's glove. Lopez, "but we got some catchers who can throw in our league, too." Dodger manager Walt Alston, who before the series compared Roseboro potentially with ex-great Roy Campanella, said "We never had worries about his arm. It was his work as a catcher and hitter that worried us when he had to step in for Campy." There was no base-running gimmick involved in Sunday's decisive seventh inning. Blanked on one hit for six, the Dodgers got rid of loser Dick Donovan on Charlie Neal's single and a pair of two-out walks that loaded thfe bases. Then they broke the shutout on Carl Furillo's pinch single, off reliever Gerry Staley, that bounced over shortstop Luis Apari- Durocher in Running for Braves Post By JOE REICHLER Associated Press Sports Writer LOS ANGELES (AP)—The Milwaukee Braves are seeking a name manager to succeed Fred Haney who resigned Sunday night after leading the club to two pennants and two second-place finishes in four years. Lou Perini, who disclosed that Haney, 61, had been offered a one- year contract but had turned it down, said tie had no idea who will handle the club in 1960. Perini left open the possibility that the job may go to Birdie Tebbetts, the club's executive vice president, if the Braves couldn't find their man. The list of candidates was headed, of course, by Leo Durocher, who managed both the Dodgers and Giants to° National League pennants, and Red Schoendienst, veteran Braves second baseman who was sidelined most of the year because of tuberculosis. Others high on the list include Freddie Hutchinson, manager of the Reds; Eddie Stankey, now in an official capacity with the St. Louis Cardinals; Bobby Bragan, manager of the Spokane club.

John Tigges, Auctioneer, Coon Rapidi, low* Big Eight Will Test Southwest In Doubleheader By SKIPPER PATRICK Associated Press Sports Writer The Big Eight is facing its toughest week end of the young football season. The Oklahoma Sooners and Missouri Tigers will seek to regain some prestige for the conference in their annuab week end doubleheader in the Cotton Bowl at Dallas. The Missourians, who huffed by Iowa State 14-0 in their league opener last Saturday, will meet potent Southern Methodist Friday night. The Oklahoma Sooners, who rebounded from a shellacking by Northwestern to wallop Colorado 42-12 in their first Big Eight game, tangle with the Texas Longhorns Saturday afternoon. Even more important on the Big Eight level, however, will be the meeting of Nebraska and Kansas in Lincoln Neb., Saturday. Both teams have hopes of representing the conference in the Orange Bowl since Oklahoma isn't eligible to return, In another league game Saturday Kansas State will be at home to Colorado. K-State was beaten 27-21 by Oklahoma State at Manhattan last week and the \yild- cats' game with Colorado could be one of the more interesting games of the day. Iowa State should get back on the winning trail at the expense of South Dakota in Vermillion, S. D., Saturday, while Oklahoma State, sitting out another season before becoming eligible for the Big Eight title, entertains Tulsa. Upsets Are Rule in Pro Grid Battle By MIKE RATHET Associated Press Sports Writer Using the mercurial Tomm; McDonald as his chief execution er, 01" Man Upset has completel scrambled the form sheet in th National Football League's two week-old campaign. The fleet - footed McDonal scored four times Sunday to leac Philadelphia's downtrodden Ea gles to a methodical 49-21 demol ishing of the Eastern Division champion New York Giants in a weekend crammed with upsets. The 5-foot-10, 180-pound Oklaho ma All-America caught passes o 55, 33 and 19 yards for touchdown and sped 81 yards with a pun return for another TD in his mos productive day of a three-yea career. Jimmy Brown got the job done for Cleveland, carrying a near record 37 times, gaining 447 yards and scoring twice as the Brown whacked the Chicago Cardinals 34-7. The Cards were last-minut picks as favorites. Things were no different in th West, where Chicago's Bears bounced back from an opening game upset to upend NFL cham pion Baltimore 26-21 despite three TD passes by Colt quarterback Johnny Unitas. Rams Thumped Green Bay and San Francisco generally figured to battle for las place in the West, wound up a the only undefeated teams. Thi Packers whipped Detroit 28-10 anc the 49ers thumped highly ratei Los Angeles 34-0. Washington responded to i tongue-lashing from Coach Miki Nixon for a 23-17 triumph ove Pittsburgh. McDonald, who caught six pass es in all for 133 yards, began the Eagle romp by taking the firs of two touchdown passes from Norm Van Brocklin. Outgained over-all 333 to 299 by the Giants Philadelphia broke it open with :hree third-period scores to hanc New York its worst defeat since 1953.

"I don't know when I've had teen play under worse condition than we had in the clay over a Ar-We-Va on Friday night, chorused Bob Miller, Glidden Ralston coach. "Why one time we sent a bo around end and he fell in a .poo and I thought we might have t fish him out," the Glidden coac who doubles during the summe as a swimming pool manager sai with a grin. "It was pretty tough going o the ground, so we went into th air with some degree of success We tried 16, hit on nine and ha two interceptions," he pointed out The two Carroll coaches wer overjoyed. It was difficult to de termine which one was the mos pleased.

Dick Thornton, star quarterbac of the Wildcats, will be out si weeks with a fractured ankle suf fered in last Saturday's 14-10 tr: umph over Iowa. This Saturday, the Wildcats long doormats of the Big Ten bu now the proud favorites for th title, entertain Minnesota, 24-1 winner over Indiana last week. Northwestern isn't the only Bl Ten team looking for a replace ment for one of its stars. Purdue Star Out Purdue, one of the pre-season choices for the league title, ha lost Ross Fichtner, the quarter back who engineered two touch downs in the Boilermakers' 28-7 rout of Notre Dame. Fichtner suffered a shoulder bone fracture in the third quarter and will be lost for the season This week Purdue takes on Wis cousin. Just to show that the Big Ten isn't the only league that play; rockem-sockem football, Yale has lost tackle Don Wall for the sea son. He broke his right hand in the Elis* 17-0 Ivy League victory over Brown. Just a notch above Northwest srn in the top spot in last week's Associated Press poll, Louisiana State tackles Miami this week in a night game. This should be soft rickin's for the Bengals from the )ayou, who knocked off Baylor, 22-0 last time out. Looking Ahead It appears that both LSU and Mississippi, No. 3 team in the country, will be concentrating strictly on their Oct. 31 date dur- ng the next three weeks. This could be the showdown battle for he championship of the tough Southeastern Conference, and the Sugar Bowl bid. Ole Miss will be heavily favored over Vanderbilt this week after lexing its muscles at the expense of Memphis State, 43-0. Ole Miss has yet to be scored on. New Brunswick produces almost he entire Canadian pack of can ned sardines, worth $5,650,500 in 957. HAT TIRE? Don't blow your top when • tire blows. Let us do the dirt/ work for you.

He had special praise for Pat Moehn, a guard. "Moehn lived in their backfield most of the night,", he quipped. "But it was really a team effort all the way," he explained. "Six times our line broke through to throw them for losses ranging from five to 13 yards. We got five of their fumbles and Moehn got two of those," he continued. The happy Carroll coach, Gene Macomber, and assistant coach Colburn Collinge calmed down long enough for a cup of coffee as they exulted over the sparkling second-half play of the Carroll Tigers in the 16-12 win over Aiiclu- bon. "But we didn't look as good in the first half. They got around us on the 75-yard punt return by Merlin Bald and that Jim Jensen eet 'em up for a score with nice run," he moaned as he got back in character. Mere mention of two Audubon touchdowns was enough to make Coach Collinge scowl a little more fiercely. "I warned you we might come up with something to shake our offense loose," Coach Macomber said. "You notice we tried a few spreads and the spread off the T- formation and mixed that up with our basic wing T and got untracked," he continued. "Our boys really played well in that second half. They stopped their drive and made that long 90- yard march for the touchdown, and don't overlook our boy Leonard Snyder when we were going for first downs on that drive. It took us 16 plays to score and he carried the ball 10 times as he shared the chores with Jon Lano and John Schaben," the Carroll coach said. Down at Harlan a good-natured Harold "Swede" Johnson exulted over the fact the Harlan board of strategy put the finger on the lack of continuity that was so noticeable in the Carroll game a week ago. "Our quarterback executes his plays well, but he wasn't getting the right sequence," Coach Johnson said in speaking of young Bill Beauchamp. The Harlan mentor wouldn't divulge what the staff has done to rectify the situation, but he did say that the problem no longer exists. There's little doubt he made a believer out of Sac City's "Chuck" Clawson. The Cyclones rolled over the Indians, 47-0. Neither Lake City's Jim Yunek nor Denison's Max Liggett checked, in. It's a safe bet Coach Yunek was giving out with sighs of relief after that fourth quarter clinching touchdown in a 13-6 triumph over Denison. Another good wager would be on the contention of Coach Liggett that fate has decreed a long season. In the first game of the season Coach Liggett lost his quarterback. The next week he was tied by Mapleton and a week later got involved in a tie with Ida Grove. The Monarchs scored first against Lake City and then saw the Eagles block the try for extra point. Lake City came bounding back in the second quarter to score a touchdown and an extra point for a 7-6 halftime lead. Meantime, the Monarchs lost two touchdowns in the first half by illegal procedure penalties. On top of all that, surprisingly strong Carroll is making preparations to visit Denison this weekend. No wonder the Monarch coach couldn't find time to yak about what might have been. Coach Ray Byrnes of Jefferson alked about almost everything except his own team, 21-6 victors over Ida Grove. "Their Curt Rupert is a real good boy," he said as the gabfest ended. For Your Month-Old Money-Makers...
