Sherman Lewis, a 154 - pound Michigan State Springer, completes the backfield. A line averaging 225 pounds features Dame, rated a better guard than a year ago when he spurred Southern California's national champions. End Dave Parks of Texas Tech, first man picked in the National Football League draft, is paired with Bob Lacey of North Carolina. Scott Applet on, a 235 - pounder who has been practicing teaching at an Austin elementary school, blocked and tackled Texas to its first perfect season in 25 years. At the other tackle is Minnesota's Carl Eller. who stood out for an unspectacular team. ' Guard Bob Brown, "the Big Daddy" of Nebraska's first non- ference champions in 23 years, and fiery center - linebacker S ick Butkus of Rose Bowl-bound linois complete the squad. Staubach, Sidle and Butkus Bre juniors, the rest seniors Staubach is just plain hard to believe. Against Michigan, for example, he completed 14 of 16 passes for 237 yards and two touchdowns, then ran 70 more. He accounted for 235 yards in Navy's only loss, the wild 32-28 setback to Southern Methodist, and on the final play was passing for an apparent winning score when a defender batted the ball away from the receiver in the end zone. Basing the selections on all- around excellence rather than on a quarterback, fullback and two halfbacks, the team also includes Sidle and Lothridge. The Soutneastern Regional Board rated Sidle slightly ahead of Lothridge and 1962 All-America George Mira, in that order, at the. signal calling job. Mira, who had a better passing record this year with less help, is in the second team backfield with Baylor's Don Trull, Duke's Jay Wilkinson and Gale Sayers Of Kansas. Although a marked man who Sometimes crashed into linemen }00 pounds heavier, Lewis never missed a game in three varsity seasons and always was a threat to break open a contest at any moment. : He turned in five runs of over 80 yards this season. Parks was grabbed by the San Francisco 49'ers in the NFL draft and may be used as a defensive back. North Carolina wouldn't give Lacey a football scholarship at the outset until he earned it, which took almost no time at all. Appleton, a middle guard on defense and weak side tackle in Texas's flip-flop offense, is a big reason the Longhorns have lost only twice since he became a varsity head knocker. Eller capped a brilliant season in the 13-0 grudge victory over Wisconsin during which he led a great goal line stand at the one. deflected a pass to a teammate for an interception, caught a tackle eligible pass and generally made life miserable for Badger quarterbacks. Brown is the team's big man at 269 pounds.

By JIM BECKER , Associated Press Sports Writer NEW YORK (AP> — Who 1 stuck the tennis ball in Madison j Square Garden's loudspeaker? | Ken Rosewall did it. I And how did it get unstuck? | It wasn't easy. j In fact, it took about a year. I The tennis ball got stuck up there about 40 feet above Hie Garden floor way back last winter, when Rosewall tossed up a lob. When Rosewall lobs, he lots. This one didn't come down. It stuck between the horns on the big loudspeaker. Since it was a pro tennis match, almost nobody noticed when the ball got stuck. It is not absolutely illegal to pay to see Rosewall play, but at the Garden it sometimes looks that way, and a slim group was on hand. Anyway, it had never happened before and nobody knew how to get the tennis ball out of there. Months went by. The man at the loudspeaker finally complained to the management that the thing was muffling his dulcet tones. The manager called in the foreman. "Get the ball out of there," he said. The foreman called in his assistant. "Get mat ball out of there," the foreman said. The assistant called in a work­ man, who didn't have an assistant, and told him to get the tennis ball out of there. "What are you, some kind of nut?" the workman asked. "I'm not going up there unless you pay me double time.' "So OK. louble time," said the assistant foreman. "Get a long ladder. What will it take you, five minutes?" "At double time it will take me all day," the workman said. "Them's union rules.' So he got a long ladder and propped it up against the loudspeaker, and climbed up, swaying gently. He got the ball and brought it down. "Give nie the ball," the assistant said. The assistant gave it to the foreman, who gave it to the manager, who bounced it on the floor. The tennis ball took one feeble little hop and then rolled quietly off into the corner. It had been stuck up there so long it had gone dead. "Well," the manager said, "it's not a total loss. If we ever get another tennis ball stuck up there we will know what to do. Of course, it's a million to one shot. "But don't put this in the paper." "Why."' "The union might get acre."

Te Bears are even under greater pressure than when they stumbled at San Francisco, 2014, Oct. 20, for their only setback in a current 9-1-2 record. The Bears hold a scant half- game lead over defending NFL champion Green Bay in the western division race. The Packers (9-2-1) play their semifinal game at Los Angeles Saturday. Thus, a possible Packer triumph could be staring at the Bears from the Wrigley Field scoreboard even before they square off against the 49crs knowing a defeat would drop them into second place. San Francisco's advance man, publicitor Joe Johnson, brought no comfort to Chicago. "Our guys believe they can do it again," he said. Johnson said quarterback LaMar Me Han, who directed the outstanding 49er upset of the Bears, was recovered from injury in last Sunday's 21-17 San Francisco loss to Los Angeles, and would be ready for the Bears Sunday. The Oct. 20 eye-opener at San Francisco marked Mc Han's first start as emergency replacement for injured John Brodie. The well-traveled Mc Han wove the same spell he used to east over the Bars while with the former Chicago Cardinals. However, the Bears won't regard the 49ers as lightly as they did the first time around after floating into San Francisco on a five-game winning streak. Assered rugged Bear tackle Earl Liggett "We certainly owe those guys something." One of the game's sizzling side attractions should come on kickoffs when the Bears' J.C. Caroline, perhaps the NFL's most ferocious kickoff shagger, collides with 49er kickoff vetur specialist Abe Woodson.

ATU\NTIC~CITY. N.J. (AP)On Sunday, Cleveland bumps up against its old jinx team, the Detroit Lions, n club the Browns never have beaten in a regular season game. The only time they whipped the Lions was in the 1954 championship game. If the Browns can tame the Lions they should have clear sailing to at least a tie in the Eastern Conference race of the National Football League. The New York Giants, tied with Cleveland for first with two games to go, have a rugged final with Pittsburgh Dec. 15 after this week's clash with the Washington Redskins. Cleveland plays Washington Dec. 15. Pittsburgh, with a chance to win it all if they can sweep their last two and Cleveland .stumbles once, will be in Dallas where the Co\vix>ys can be tough. Ask the Giants. St. Louis, one game back, must keep its guard up against Philadelphia. Chicago will know what it has to do before it takes the field Sunday against San Francisco, the only team to top them. Green Bay, a half game back of the Bears in the Western Conference plays at Los Angeles Saturday in a nationally televised (CBS) game. San Diego can clinch the Western crown in the American Football league by defeating Oakland and first place in the East will be the prize when Boston and Houston, tied for the lead, meet at Houston. 'Never Seen Boys So High" — Dietzel Army, Navy Teams Grim —Ready For Showdown Doo/ey Gets Hot Seat At Georgia U. ATHENS. Ga. (API—Vincent Joseph Vince Dooley. 31-year- old freshman coach from Auburn, has taken over as head football coach at Georgia in a move to get the Bulldogs back on the winning road after three : losing seasons. I Dooley .succeeds Johnny Grif- j fifth, who compiled a 10-16-4 • record during three years of \ unrest in the Georgia athletic department. Griffith resigned Wednesday, effective Jan. 31. Dooley is the second young coach to be named head of a Southeastern Conference football team in three days. Douglas Dickey. 31, an assistant on Coach Frank Bvoyles' Arkansas staff, was selected Monday to replace Jim McDonald at Tennessee. The Georgia athletic board accepted Griffith's resignation Wednesday, unanimously ap. proved Dooley's selection and t signed him to a four-year con- | tract. His salary was not announced. A native of Mobile, Ala.. Dooley was quarterback of Auburn's 1953 Gator Bowl team coached by Ralph Jordan. After serving in the Marines, he returned to Auburn in 1956 as a backfield assistant. He has been freshman coach since 1961. Griffith, 39, said he has not decided whether to accept an offer to remain with the university in Hie physical education department. Kelso Is Again Horse Of Year BOCA RATON, Fla. fAP) To the surprise of nobody, Kelso from Mrs. Richard C. du- Pont's Bohemia Stable was named today as America's champion thoroughbred race horse for the fourth straight year by the Thoroughbred Racing Associations. Kelso also was the chosen Horse of the Year in a poll conducted by Turf and Sports Digest, completing his sweep of the balloting. The swift - running gelding, who needs only S16S.167 to pass Round Table as the world's leading money winning horse, began his reign as a 3-year-old in 1960. He was the unanimous choice of the TRA Board of Selection this year. His earnings of S569.762 this season brought his life-time bankroll to 1.581,702 for 31 victories in 45 starts. Kelso's only out-of-the money performance this year was in his debut in the sev»n-furlong Palm Beach Handicap at Hialeah Park, when he was fourth back of Ridan, Jaipur and Merry Ruler. He went on to win nine races, cairying as much as 134 pounds under handicap conditions. At one stage he put together a string of eight straight stakes victories, including an unprecedented fourth straight victory in the two miles of the Jockey Club Gold Cup. By WILL GRIMSLEY Associated Pre** Sport* Writer PHILADELPHIA (AP)-There was a grim "We will win" determination about the Army football team that moved into this City of Brotherly Love today for its 64th game with heavily-favored Navy. "We are fighting for our lives," said tight-lipped Paul Dietzel, coach of the West Pointers. "I have never seen a bunch of boys so eager and so intent before a big game. They are really high." The young Army coach shrugged off the U-point odds, favoring the sensational Roger Staubach and his Annapolis cohorts, No. 2 ranked nationally and probably headed for the Cotton Bowl in Dallas if they can pull off their ninth victory in 10 games this year. "I never went into a game I expected to lose," Dietzel said, throwing down the gauntlet to Navy's Coach Wayne Hardin. Hardin didn't flinch. "We have a lot of respect for Army—it is a fine defensive learn," he said. "But we think we are the No. 1 team in the country. We want to prove it." The Midshipmen may get I their chance Saturday. Army and Navy clash at 1:30 p.m. EST in the vast Municipal Stadium, scene of many an exciting and star-spangled thriller in the past, with 100,000 watching from the stands, millions of others from TV screens and Cotton Bowl representatives looking on from the wings. The game will be nationally televised by CBS, starting at 115 p.m. A Navy triumph is certain to bring a bid—and prompt acceptance—for the second-ranked Middies to play No. 1 and unbeaten Texas at Dallas on New Year's Day. Few games betwen the two service academies have created the tensions surrounding this one. which will be staged in a somber atmosphere out of deference to the late commander- in-chief, President John F. Kennedy. The 2,400 member Corps of Cadets and 3,700 brigade of Midshipmen will attend the game but will forego the marching between halves. The only ceremony will be a military musical concert ending with "America the Beautiful," a tribute to the late President Kennedy. GO . . .

Phil Eagles Bought For $5,505,500 Jerry Wolman, 36, Joins List Of Young Millionaires In Pro Came. PHILADELPHIA (API-Boyish - looking, 36-year-old Jerry Wolman has bought the Philadelphia Eagles for $5,505,500, furthering the trend of young millionaires taking control of National Football League teams. Subject to approval of the NFL, Wolman, a Washington contractor, will join such young owners as Art Modell of Cleveland, Dan Reeves of Los Angeles, Clint Murchison of Dallas, the Bidwill brothers of St. Louis and Clay Ford of Detroit. Another trend is toward single ownership. The sale of the Eagles Thursday by 65 stockholders leaves only Green Bay and Minnesota as teams owned by large groups of stockholders. "Ever since I was a kid and hitclihiked from Shenandoah, Pa., (his native town), to Philadelphia to see the Eagles play, I wanted to own this team," Wolman said. He reportedly is worth more than $30 million made by building apartments and office buildings. He owns the National Theater building in Washington and the Raleigh Hotel. He said he expects to move to Philadel- pliia once the purchase is approved. In line with an unwritten NFL rule, Wolman has promised he will control 51 per cent of the stock. His associate, Earl Foreman, a Washington attorney, is buying the other 49 per cent. The new owner also has agreed to keep the team in Philadelphia. Name Jr. College All-Star Squad DODGE CITY, Kan.
