The "Bear" is Alabama coach
Paul Bryant and over the last ten
.years, the Tide under his leader-
ship usually has been rated among
the top three teams in the coun-
try. This year, however, Alabama
finds itself in the unfriendly con-

pressive 25-3 victory over Southern
Mississippi last weekend .
The difference this year seems
to be defense. The lithe defense
which allowed the opposition only
44 points last season asd was sup-
posed to lead the Tide to an un -
defeated season this year faltered
against Florida State. It took a
brilliant performance by bad boy
quarterback Ken Stabler, who
seems to prefer the draft to the
classroom, to save Alabama from
its first defeat since 1965.
Against Southern Mississippi,
the defense "beared" down while
Stabler and his favorite target,
Dennis Homan, continued to click.
The two have combined for five
touchdowns this season.
Ole Miss, which, defeated Ken-
tucky last week after losing to
Memphis State in its opener, will
center its attack around the run-
ning of tailback Steve Hidman and
fullback Bobby Wade.
While Alabama has been picked
as a ten point favorite against
the Rebels, the perfectionist Bry-
ant has been dissatisfied with his
team's performance this year. "We

ST. LOUIS ('a) - Luman Harris
was named manager of the At-
lanta Braves baseball team yes-
terday, succeeding the fired Billy
Hitchcock.
The announcement was made
at a news conference called by
Paul Richards, vice president of
the Braves for whom Harris had
played, coached and managed for
years.
Hitchcock was fired without
advance notice Sept. 29 with the
Atlanta team mired in seventh
place in the National League
standings.
Harris, 52, who pitched for'
seven years with the former
Philadelphia Athletics and Wash-
ington Senators, this year man-
aged the Braves, Richmond club

ST. LOUIS (P) - The favored
St. Louis Cardinals will match,
young Nelson Briles, a bullpen
graduate with nine straight wins,
against Boston's Gary Bell, a vet-
eran of 10 big league seasons,
this afternoon in the third game
of a World Series that is all even
after the first two.
A soft rain dripped down on
both the Cardinals and the Red
Sox yesterday as they limbered
up at Busch Stadium on the off
day in the schedule. The weather-
man forecasts, a possibility of
showers for the weekend games.
However, it would take real heavy
weather before any games would
be called off, especially on a big
television weekend.
Red Schoendienst, manager of
the Cardinals, plans no changes
in his line-up that banged gout
10 hits in the opener but was held
to one lone double by Jim Lon-
borg's pitching in the second
game. Red, hopes a return to

familiar surrounding in the 49,-
450-capacity park will act as a
tonic for the Cards' .177 team
batting average.
Orlando Cepeda's failure to hit:
safely in the first two games has
been an anchor, around the neck
of the Cards' attack. The Baby
Bull from Puerto Rico,4who bat-
ted .325 and -led the National
League with 111 runs batted in
hasn't a hit in seven at bats.
This slump has recalled mem-
ories of his .158 hitting for the
San Francisco Giants in the 1962
series. Tim McCarver also is hit-
less in six at bats and Curt Flood
and Roger Maris each has only
one hit. Lou Brock's four hits
in the opener snd .500 average
make him far- and away the
leader.
Boston thinks its sluggers woke,
up Thursday with those two
booming homers by Carl Yas-
trzemski, the slugger who carried
the Sox on his shoulders all sea-

son. George Scott at .429, Yaz
at .375 and Dalton Jones at .333
are the big men in Boston's line-
up, which averages .234.
Manager Dick Williams plans
to continue with the same batting
order that won Thursday."That
means Joe Tartabull again will
be in right field in place of Ken
Harrelson and Elston Howard will
catch for Russ Gibson.
Williams has his pitching all
set up through Monday, having
proclaimed that Lonborg will
wrap it up Monday. Jose Santi-
ago, opening loser, Will work
tomorrow.
The Cards are expected to fol-
low Briles with Bob Gibson in
tomorrow's game in order to get
a maximum of three starts with
three, days rest each time for
Gibson if the Series goes seven
games.
Like his rival today, Briles is
a right-hander who throws hard.

By FRED LaBOUR
Trying to capture the atmos-
phere of yesterday's Daily Libel-
UAC Mugger football game would
be more difficult than writing a
book entitled "Sex and the Sin-
gle Wing or Why It Takes Them
So Long to Unpile."
The only thing anybody was
sure of as The Daily went to press
this morning was that the final
score was 12 to 6.,.
Every one of the 75 enthusias-
tic fans who attended the game
will agree on is how UAC was
hopelessly outclassed by a determ-
ined Daily seven. ,
The Libels, who looked a little
ragged in style of dress when
compared to the groovy, cute UAC
uniforms, showed again and again
that they were anything but rag-
ged when it comes to spirit, the
stuff victories are made of.
Leading Shuffler
Can anyohe who was there ever
forget the crushing assaults led
by Ron (Shuffler) Landsman?
The bullet-like passes of Shoo-
Shoo Shister? The general all-
around, heroics of John Lottier?
And what about the inspiring
sight of Meredith Eiker, long rel-
egated to atseat on the bench,
coming on at a crucial moment
and performing like a seasoned
pro as yard-marker?
The Daily scored the second
touchdown of the game on a pic-
ture-play pass from Shoo-Shoo to
Diamond Bill Levis. Levis gath-
ered in the ball on the Mugger's

two yard line and fell into the
end zone on his head. The two
point conversion attempt failed.
as UAC, using voodoo to offset
their inadequacies on the playing,
field, turned the ball into a can
of chicken soup.
The Muggers' strong point was
their offensive line. It didn't mat-
ter if they had the ball or not,'
they were still offensive.
It was a roughly fought con-
test as UAC resorted. repeatedly
to less than legal maneuvers.
"See that guy over there?" said
Libel Steve Wildstrom during the
game. "He's a shmuck. He hit
me in the face with his elbow."
-The tension that enveloped
Wines Field on that cold October'
afternoon would have to be ex-.
perienced to be believed. As Libel
general manager Grayle Howlett
put it, "I haven't been so excit-
ed since McDonald's sold a bil-
lion hamburgers.".}
It must have been the tension
that caused the Muggers to per-
form so miserably. Their most
exciting play of the affair came
when a Mugger lost one of his
contact lenses and the team spent
15 minutes crawling around on the
ground.
The Muggers demonstrated'
their supreme lack of true-blue
All-American football good guy
spirit as they broke out a con-
tainer of alcoholic beverages dur-
ing halftime. The Libel squad was
und'erstandably shocked and dis-r
mayed at this flagrant display of
middle class decadence but they
tactfully held their peace and
waited to uphold the forces of
righteousness on the gridiron.
And uphold they did. Time and
again the explosive Daily offense
marched up and down the field,
almost at will, against the inept

Mugger defense. The Libels were
urged on by cheers from their
numerous supporters on the side-
lines. "UAC goes to Hatcher teas,"
they screamed. "UAC supports
blind dates."
And then, with darkness sym-
bolically descending onto the field,
the Libels moved to within inch-
'es of the winning touchdown on
a long pass to Bill Krauss and
Dick Metzger, the Daily super-tal-
ented duo.
On the very next play, with
time running out, Shoo-Shoo roll-
ed to his right, looked at the on-
coming defensive hoard, sidestep-
ped cleverly, looked at Coach Ed
Herstein for directions, fell down,
stood up, raced to his left, asked
:a fan what time it was, mutter-
ed something about an impending
date, and fired a three yard pass
to Phil (Blue) Brown.
Brown dropped the ball as time
ran out.
Short Nort MVP
Clark Norton was voted line-
man of the game by a poll of
sports editors in the pressbox.
"Norton's the best I've ever seen,"
said one. "He has to be the most
unusual defensive lineman in the
history of the game."
'Offensive back of the contest
was Shoo-Shoo, a man with su-
preme confidence in his own abil-
ity. "Maybe I should have called
more runs," he stated after the
game. "But shoot. It gets pretty
confusing out there. How are
you supposed to know what to
call?"
The Daily Libels were, in short,
fleet of foot, agile of mind, solid
of body and moral of claracter.
I And besides, as Dazzling Dan
Okrent said just before the epic
battle commenced, "We've got
God on our side."
