IT WAS A MEETING OF two All-Americans last year when
Roger Staubach of Navy attempted to elude the persuasive
M tactics of Bill Yearby. As the picture indicates, Yearby and his
tackling mates got the better of the exchange. As for Mr. Stau-
bach, he prefers the aquaintance of people with more hospitality,
thank you.

Sox Manager
Lopez Quits
CHICAGO WP)-Al Lopez, 57,
quit as manager of the Chicago
White Sox for family reasons and
simultaneously was named a club
vice-president and consultant yes-
terday.'
The long-rumored move came at
a hastily-summoned news confer-
ence at which Lopez' new job was
defined as assistant ,to General
Manager Ed Short.
Successor to Lopez, who was un-
der managerial contract through
1966, probably will be named be-
fore baseball's: winter meetings
within a few weeks in Florida,
Short said.
Sox owner Arthur C. Allyn, who
presided 'at the news conference,
said Lopez would be Short's "right
hanj man," in charge of selection,
development and acquisition of
players.

Regular like a two-headed cow:
is regular. Bill Yearby has to be
┬župer-regular, because anybody in
his position should need a ten
gallon hat just to hold the clip-
pings when he gets a haircut.
When you see Bill Yearby on cam-
pus, you just know that he must
be somebody important. Not just
because he's big, but because of
the modest self assurance with
which he conducts himself.
Smiles for All{
Yearby wears a smile for every-
one. "When I first met him," con-
fesses Carl Ward, "even before he
knew'who I was, he kidded around
with me, though to him I was
just another ordinary guy."
Ward is not an ordinary guy.
And neither is Yearby - on the
football field. "He has to be the
quickest, most agile athlete I've
ever coach," offered Bob Holloway,
the defensive line coach.
"Bill has a lot of pride and
plays to win," says Rowser. When
Bill Yearby is out there, every-
body plays to win. He's a legiti-
mate All-American and being out
there with an All-American is
contagious. You know not too
many plays are going to get by
him. It's like batting behind
Mickey Mantle: even if the oppos-
ing pitcher gets by him he's been
softened up pretty well by the
time he gets to you.
Impatient Patient
But Mickey Mantle has bad legs
and sits on the bench. Bill Yearby
has a pinched nerve in his shoul-
der and sits on the bench some-
times, too; ,but only if you abso-
lutely compel him. "We have to
keep him on the bench for his own
sake," says Holloway. "The shoul-
der? He'll play over it if we let
him."
Bill i'einjured his shoulder dur-
ing the week of the Minnesota
game and spent the entire game
huddled on the bench. One player
put it this way: "The team feels a
lot better just having him around.
For Minnesota he was dressed and
even announced in the starting
