He quit as head coach of the Chicago Cardinals after they were beaten 52-21 in the final game of the season. "The humilating defeat by George Halas and the Bears is causing me to tender this resignation—I consider the Cardinal' personnel superior to that of the Rears so the loss must be a reflection on my coaching ability," said Parker. That's not the way Don Bishop beard it Monday. "Bishop has cost me two games, but he won't cost me a third," said Buddy Parker after firing Bishop, a sophomore defensive back with the Pittsburgh Steelers. The Steelers were defeated 28-24 by the Philadelphia Eagles Sunday, their second straight loss after a season-opening victory. Parker said Bishop, who has been serving as a replacement for injured regular Jack Butler, was not on the field when Eagle rookie Art Powell returned a punt 58 yards for a touchdown. Parker said Bishop was on the sidelines getting a shoe taped and the kicking team had only 10 men on the field. Parker, who guided the Detroit Lions to two NFL championships after leaving Chicago, quit Detroit suddenly just before the 1957 season. At a "Meet the Lions" banquet he announced, "When you get to a situation where you can't handle football players, it's time to get out—and that's what I'm doing. I'm through with football in Detroit." He took over the Steelers two weeks later and since has traded away many draft choices to build a veteran squad. Bishop, a 210- pounder from Los Angeles City College, was an exception—until Monday. Dispute on Signal for Fair Catch LOS ANGELES 'AP) — Coach Sid Gillman of the Los Angeles | Rams, says a revision is in order on football's fair catch rule. "He told the Football Writers | Assn. in a telephone interview ! Monday that he believes the Hams should have been credited I with a touchdown in a controversial fair cntch piny in the 28-21 victory over the Chicago Bears Sunday. The Rams thought Bear safety- nan Johnny Morris signalled for ' a fair catch. Morris fumbled or dropped the ball and as the Rams rearranged their .defense for the fair catch, Morris grabbed up the ball and raced 78 yards for a touchdown. Officials ruled that Morris merely raised his hand .to shade his eyes from 'the sun. Said Gillman: "The movie show Morris signalled for a fair catch. His hand definitely wa raised above his head, as the rule insists. The rule must be changed Possibly the receiver should wave his hand from side to side over his head." »MMf IMM'MI M •**»» Pair Iowa Against St. John's Cagers NEW YORK (AP) — Iowa has been paired against St. John's o!

Main St. Exira Reserves Edge Kuemper's Frosh-Soph Team The Kuemper (Freshmen-Sopho- i mores) suffered their first loss of the season when they dropped a 14-12 decision to the Exira Reserves at Exira Monday night. After the Vikings had scored first on a 12-yard touchdown play, Denny Hagcdorn burst fhnvic'h the line for eight yards and a TD. Exira's extra point was good while Kuom- per's was not and Exira owned a 7-6 halftime lead. Exira scored on a quarterback option in the third period and again made the conversion. Ron Cleveland went off tackle for two yards for the final score of the game. The Knights again failed to add the extra point. Three scoring opportunities were lost to the Knights because of fumbles and an alert Exira pass defense intercepted two passes. Quarterback Denny Haged o r n and John Bock, a guard, looked best for Kuemper. The next Freshman - Sophomore game will be with Fort Dodge High School next Monday. Game time is 7-30 p.m. at Dodger Field. Cyclone Back Top Rusher and Scorer KANSAS CITY (AP) - Iowa State fullback Tom Watkins is the Big Eight's leading jrusher and scorer.

Stenhouse won 12 games and lost 13 for seventh-place Seattle last year. At every election there is fire in the political pots and plenty of smokes. j DUCK HUNTERS: I "It's a crying shame," cried my duck hunting friends as they con- 1 sregated on the street corner this week and cast saddened eyes at the i leaden skies overhead. ! "The ducks are here," said Dave McIIugh. ! "If you go out to Dunbar and set out goose decoys, you'll have 1 mallards landing in the decoys," I he said. 1 "If our local hunters would go out | to the Missouri River, the size of ithe duck flights and the fact we • can't hunt ducks in Iowa until next Tuesday would make them sick," said Daryl Winker. "It's a shame we can't hunt now," said Bob Greteman. E. C. Pudenz, another ardent waterfowl hunter, shook his head and said, "What can you do?" The answer to that question is wait, the party of hunters agreed. But the waiting angle brought up another debatable point. How long will the ducks wait when the usual supply of corn is not readily available from picked fields? The fall harvest is just getting well underway with emphasis on combining soybeans at the moment. Very few corn fields have been picked. And it's a well known fact that ducks like to fly over a corn field that is utterly devoid of cover or concealment for hunters. When they set down to feed, they want plenty of open space all around. Under those ideal conditions, the wary mallards will remain in the area until driven out by snow cover. They encamp overnight on preserves or on the large lakes and torage in a radius that may extend 30 or 40 miles. Unlike previous years, the duck hunting season in Iowa gets a late start. The goose season opened last Wednesday, but the duck season does not open unlio Oct. 20, next Tuesday. What this means is simply that the early flight of ducks, which thio year includes thousands of mallards, will have passed though this area before local hunters have an opportunity, to fire a shot. Since mallards are moving now, it's a safe bet the scaup will come and go as well. It appears local nimrods will have to content themselves with the ducks who choose to remain in the area, the stragglers from previous flights and the unpredictable late flight. It doesn't add up to the most promising duck hunting this fall. SHIRT OFF HIS BACK . . . That's what Charley Ravcnel will give for Harvard any Saturday afternoon. You can't tell the Crimson quarterback even with a scorecard as lie heads back to the huddle literally coming apart al the seams. Colts Boom Manager for Pro Vacancy PHILADELPHIA <AP) - Carroll Rosenbloom, majority owner of the Baltimore Colt, said today tnat his general manager, Don Kellett, "would be the best man for the job of National Football League commissioner if none of the older statesmen is available." Rosenbloom said that by older statesmen he meant veterans of the league such as George Halas. owner of the Chicago Bears, and Geroge Preston Marshall, owner of the Washington Redskins. Both Halas and Marshall have said they don't want the job. It was pointed out to Rosenbloom that by process of elimination this possibly would make Kcl- lett, 50, a frontrunner among several others for the post vacated Sunday by the sudden death of Hert Bell. Rosenbloom said only: "He (Kellett) is a good man and would do a fine job. He's well-equipped and I wouldn't want to lose him but I'll do what's best for the league. Personally I would like to see the post go to a young man like Kellett." In Baltimore Kellett said he considered it "a great, honor" to be mentioned for the post. Davenport- Gets Spot in Braves Farm Club Plans DAVENPORT (AP)—A working agreement and a promise of a franchise in the Class D Midwest. League has renewed baseball interest in Davenport. The Milwaukee Braves announced Monday Davenport was replacing Midland, Tex., in their farm system. Davenport baseball officials said Midwest League President C. C. Hoffman has promised Davenport a franchise. Davenport and Quincy, 111., have been mentioned as league replacements if Kokomo and Michigan City, Ind., pull out of the league as has been reported. Milwaukee Farm Director John Mullen said Jack Quinn, who served as business manager at Midland during'the 1958 and 1959 seasons, would move to Davenport in the same capacity next season, and Jimmie Brown, former St. Louis Cardinal player, would manage the club on the field. Title Bout for Fullmer in Utah SALT LAKE CITY (AP) —The manager of Gene Fullmer, the National Boxing Assn.'s middle- dleweight champion, said Monday night Fullmer will make his first title defense in Utah, probably in December.

Jenson said Spider Webb, the man picked by the NBA to face Fullmer, may fly to Salt Lake City.from Chicago later this week, if Rothschild decides on the site. V-'ebb and his manager, Hector Knowles, will fly here to sign for the fight officially, Jenson said. Fullmer holds a unanimous decision over Webb.
