Hillsdale traveled the longest distance of any Dale team in 69 years of football only to forget its offense. For the first tima in 56 games stretching back to a 0-0 tie in 1953 with. Albion the Dales were blanked by Texas A&I, 20-0, in the Western playoffs for the Holiday Bowl game. v Thiis, the Texans meet Lenoir Rhyne, 48-20 victor over South ern Connecticut in the Eastern playoffs. The Holiday Bowl at St. Petersburg will be Dec. 19. THE TEXANS, 10-1 for the season and co-champs of the Lone Star Conference, broke open tha game with two crackling thrusts in the second half and added another for good measure just before the game ended. Ironically enough, if the game had been stopped at the half Hillsdale would have won despite the fact that the Dales hadn't yet made a first down. In case of a tie the winner would have been decided on net yardage and the Dale were ahead in that category, 29-18, thanks to 58 yards in penalties against the Texans. But Butch Pressley, freshman right half, won it for the Jave-linas with a 53-yard sprint with 5:31 left in the third period. The only threats up to that time were field goal attempts. HILLSDALE'S Bart Misyiak hit the crossbar from the 29 and A &I's Gerald Lambert was wide from the 22. Misyiak's attempt marked the deepest penetration for Hillsdale in the game and was set up when Neal Thomas of East Detroit recovered a fumble on the A&I 25. The Dales got to the 22 before trying the kick. Tresslpy was semmingly 'trapped twice but pulled away for his touchdown on the second play of a 63-yard drive. Don Hees went 40 yards with 10:43 left in the fourth quarter and Charles Massey sprinted 14 yards for the third TD. Little Ail-American Lambert, who led the superior but lighter Texas line, kicked two extra points.

Nats Get Hot Late to Spill Minneapolis SYRACUSE (UPI) After a poor first - half shooting demonstration, the Syracuse Nationals finally found the range and handed, the Minneapolis Lakers a 108-95 defeat in Saturday's televised NBA game. George Yardley, after missing 13 of his first 15 field-goal attempts spearheaded the Nats in a third-period drive during wrhich they opened their lead from 62-59 to 76-65.

I don't have my stam ina yet. There was a crazy note at the beginning as Schmidt and Sid Abel staged the biggest line jockeying battle seen here this season. It resulted in 10 line changes in the first 10 minutes after which Horvath had been seen on the ice only 11 seconds. The second, third and even fourth lines each made three appearances at tiie start before the star lines for both clubs had played a full shift. "If I can keep Howe on the bench that way, I'll gladly keep Horvath on the bench," Schmidt said in explaining strategy. The jockeying ended after Aldcorn spiked Murray Oliver's rebound at 10:12 for his eighth goal of the season. McKenney deflected in a screen shot to offset that edge, but Howe got it back in the middle period when Lumley couldn't hold his 15-foot bullet . . . it was Howe's 14 th. McINTYRE made it 3-1 with a chop deflection of Alex Del-vecchio's power-play shot . . . Fonteyne ran it to 4 -1 by finishing a nefty passing play, Red Kelly to Billy McNeill to Fonteyne at the net ... It was Mclntyre's fifth and Fonteyne's fourth also his first in 19 starts. Fonteyne hit at 4:35 of the the final period and a routine finish appeared in store . . . No one was really worried when Meissner clicked on a close-in backhander at 10:12. Furthermore, when Meissner was penalized at 18:07, the end looked even nearer ... It all changed when the veteran Mackell br-oke around Kelly, and Jim Morrison fell flat on his wallet at the same time. Mackell had an open path and he planted his finisher just inside the post for a shorthand-ed goal that closed the gap to 4-3 and changed the entire complexion . . . The Bruins battled, yanked Sawchuk and ganged it the rest of the way. The Wings just made it to the wire in time.

Grand Blvd.. at 12th TY 8-3707 NOT A 10 AM BY HAL MIDDLES WORTH Picking All-America football heroes must be getting easier. The voters agreed unanimously on four of them this year, something which doesn't happen every season. Of course, it isn't every year that the game produces a figure like Billy Cannon, the express-train halfback of Louisiana State's Sugar Bowl team. BILLY BOY was No. 1 all the way first choice in both drafts of the two professional leagues and "Player of the Year" in a vote of 339 sportswriters and broadcasters announced Saturday by the United Press International. Naturally, Cannon was everybody's All-America. But it was an honor he had to share with three others-tackle Dan Lanphear of Wisconsin, guard Roger Davis of Syracuse and fullback Charlie Flowers of Mississippi. Thfy are tha unanimous choices on the Concensus All-America, picked from the teams selected by the Football Writers Association for Look magazine, the Associated Press, United Press International, Football Coaches Association and Sporting News. HERE IS the elite line-up: ENDS Bill Carpenter, Army, and Marlin McKeever, Southern Cal, or Monte Stickles, Notre Dame. TACKLES Lanphear and Don Floyd, Texas Christian. GUARDS Davis and BUI Burrell, Illinois. CENTER Maxle Baughan, Georgia Tech. BACKS Cannon, Flowers, Ron Burton, Northwestern, and; Richie Lucas, Penn State. Burton, Lucas, Baughan and Carpenter lacked just one vote each of joining the others as unanimous choices. LANPHEAR, Burrell and Burton were among six players from the Big Ten getting mention by one or more of the five selectors but Dean Look of Michigan State was the state's only representative. He was picked by the Football Writers. Altogether, the names of 31 players appeared on the five All-America lists, with the writers picking a 22-man team. Eight came from the Midwest and the same number from the South. The East and Southwest furnished six each and the Pacific Coast the other three.
