'ENER, 131-117:


Pistons Break Royals' String

Associate Sports Editor
Special to The Daily
DETROIT-The Detroit Pistons
raced off to an early lead here
last night against the . league-
leading Cincinnati Royals, and
shook off a second-half cold spell
to post a 131-117 win.
The Pistons posted their first
NBA win of the season over the
previously unbeaten Royals by
holding big Oscar Robertson to
seven field goals, only three in
the last half.
Detroit collapsed its defenses
around the highly-touted rookie
under the boards, forcing him to
pick up his only points from the
floor on jump shots from behind
the key.
Six in Double Figures
Meanwhile, six Pistons hit dou-
ble figures, paced by sharp-shoot-
ing' guard Gene Shue with 30 on
an 11-8 combination and Baily
Howell with 23. Shue led the
Pistons last year with a 22.8
Robertson still managed to ac-
qount for 25 points in the wide-
open contest, but had to pick up
11 of them from the foul line.
Jack Twyman was all over the
court to top the game's scoring
with 33 on 11-11.
The' Royals had entered the
game on the wave of a four
game winning streak, the best
season start in the history of the
team. But the Pistons took little
time in taking command.
Moreland Leads Attack
Before the 6,926 fans had set-
tled in their seats, Piston rookie
Jackie Moreland had poured in
nine straight points to give De-
troit a 9-2 bulge,
The margin rolled to 15-3 be-
fore Cincinnati settled down, with
the 6'7" forward from Louisiana
Tech carrying the attack with his
jump shots and driving layups. He
wad also clearing both the offen-
sive and defensive boards.
And when Moreland let up, Shue
took up the slack, hitting on his
long set shots. The Pistons hit
over 55 per cent of their first
period shots.
At the start of the second half,
long-time Piston fans were wait-
ing for the second-half cold spell
that had plagued last year's NBA

entry. They didn't have long to
Midway through the third per-
iod, Cincinnati took advantage of
Detroit mistakes aund fine shoot-
ing by Twyman and Arlen Bock-'
born to cut the 68-52 half-time
margin to 93-90.
But the Pistons hung on to
take the decision. Shellie McMiI-
lon, 6'5" Piston forward topped
' ._*_

off the evening for local fans by
jamming down a layup for the
final basket with 34 seconds to go.
Former Michigan star George
Lee saw limited action, picking
up a pair of free throws and
grabbing two rebounds for De-
troit. The Pistons, now 1-1 for
the season, play a TV contest

By The Associated Press
NEW YORK - The American
League voted yesterday to move
into Los Angeles and Minneapolis-
St. Paul next season, jumping the
gun on the National League by
expanding to 10 teams immedi-
This surprising action, taken
less than six months before open-
ing day, left the American with
the problem of stocking two new
clubs on short notice. The general
managers immediately huddled to
devise a formula to let each exist-
ing club provide talent for the
new; teams.
Calvin Griffith, president of the
present Washington club, was
given permission to move his Sen-
ators-bat, ball and Harmon Kille-
brew - to Minneapolis-St. Paul,.
where the 22,000-seat Metropolitan
Stadium will be enlarged to 40,000

Angeles, probably in the Coliseum
with its 94,000 seats and 251-foot
left field foul line.
The names of, the new owners
in Washington and Los Angeles
will be. made public within three
weeks by Joe Cronin, league presi-
dent. Fast action will be necessary
because they probably will partici-
pate in the annual player draft in
late November.
The National League voted, last
week to expand to 10 clubs by
adding New York and Houston in
1962. Informed of the American
League action, Warren Giles, Na-
tional League president, said his
league's plan is "more practical."'
As for the matter of moving
into Los Angeles, where the Na-
tional League already has a club,
Giles said:.
"For them to go into Los An-
geles, they will have to follow the
same procedure we ,will have to,
follow to go into New York. That
is, they will have to obtain the
permission of the club already
there or change the rules." .
Frick for Move
In case there is any dispute be-
tween the two leagues, Commis-
sioner Ford Frick already has said
he would cast a tie-breaking vote
in favor of two clubs in New York
and Los Angeles.
The American League will meet
again Nov. 17 in New York. Cron-
in said, "Further forward looking
steps for future expansion will be
considered at that time." He said

ds Two Teams for

the league will expand to 12 clubs
"in the near future.",
Expansion to 10 clubs means
that the American League will
play 162 games next season. Each
club will meet each other 18 times.
It is likely that old records will be'
preserved by listing them with a
separate notation that they cov-
ered a 154-game season. This
would leave Babe Ruth's record of
60 home runs in the books for all
Cut Player Limit
As part of the plan to stock the
new teams, the American League
will-cut the player limit from 25
to 23 men. That would leave two
extra men who could wind up with
one of the new clubs. It is likely
that some system, patterned after,
the disaster plan, will be set up
so that 15 men would-be declared
untouchable on each roster with
the others eligible for purchase-

When the Wolverines travel to
Madison Saturday, they will be up
against more than a co-holder of
fifth place in the Big Ten Stand-
Providing a big spark for Wis-'
consin drives will be quarterback
Ron Miller, currently leading the,
Western Conference in total of-
fense. Statistics showed Miller
With 548 yards gained for an
average of 5.8 per play through
last week's games.,
Of these total yards, 482 have
come on 36 pass combinations in
70 ,attempts.
Top Receivers
The Badgers also have the two
top pass receivers in the confer-
ence, in end Pat Richter who
caught 14 tosses for 189 yards and
one touchdown, and fullback Tom
Wiesner who has gained 145
yards on seven nabs.
Michigan's Dave Glinka ranks
fourth in passing offense, one be-
hind Miller. The Wolverine sig-
nal-caller has completed 17 out
of 45 tries for 279 yards.
Glinka dropped from the fourth
spot in total offense to sixth
last Saturday, averaging 4.1 yards
per play.
Allen on Top
Bernie Allen of Purdue removed
Ohio State's Tom Matte from the
top spot in passing offense by
hitting on 18 of 26 pass attempts
against a rather weak Iowa sec-
ondary last Saturday. Allen has
294 yards in the air on 27 com-
pletions in 43 tries.
Wisconsin has two other leaders

Bakken has punted nine times in

The man of the hours in De-
troit these days is Jim Martin.
The veteran linebacker kicked
three long field goals Sunday in
helping the Detroit Lions to an
upset 30-17 victory over the Bal-
timore Colts.
During the last half he also
jarred quarterback Johnny Unitas
loose from the ball on the Colts
10-yard line.
His first three pointed, a 52
yarder in the opening period, was
the longest he had ever kicked.
The two in the last period, 51 and
40 yards respectively, salted away
the Lions' victory.
'Satisfying Win'.
Afterward, Martin remarked
that "this was one of the most
satisfying wins of my career."
'This win means a lot to the
team. This is a good club that has

to hustle and make our own;
breaks and we proved today that
we could do it against the best."
Martin's second field goal could
be classified as a break and a
half. With a strong wind helping
him at his back, the kick struck
the crossbar and bounced over.
'Hit Ball High'
"I hit the ball 'high' and didn't
know if it would carry," said
Martin. "I was certainly surprised
to see it hit the crossbar. But as
long as it goes in I'll take it."
The last kick was a line drive
which sailed straight through.
Martin has a long history of
playing on winning teams. At
Notre Dame (1946-9) he played on
the post-war Irish powerhouses
under Frank Leahy. (Purdue,
broke a 39 game unbeaten string,
of Notre Dame in 1950.) Some ofj
his teammates were Johnny Lu-
jack, Bobby Williams, Leon Hart,I,
and Emil Sitko,
Starts at Cleveland
His first year of pro ball was
spent with Cleveland in 1950. That,
year the Brown won the league
title. The next season, his first
with Detroit, the Lions were nosed
out for the Western Division title,
posting a 7-4-1 record. Then they
won the league titles in 1952,
1953 plus a divisional title in 1954.
'through his ten year career
with Detroit, Martin has been aa

jack - of - all - trades. He played
tackle, guard, and. center on of-
fense and a variety of positions on
defense. In later years he has
'served as a placekicker, spare
linebacker ,and occasional fillin
for other positions.
In practice, Martin boots field
goals from the 57 yard line. Why
the odd distance? Bert Rechichar
holds the NFL record at 56 yards.
Most Valuable
Last season, Martin, who always
holds the respect of his fellow
players, was named the team's
most valuable player by his team-
At the end of every season, ob-
servers begin their annual debate
on whether Martin will retire or
come back for just one more year.
This is his 11th year as a pro,
"I think I'll call it quits when
my wife stops having kids," said
Martin with a sly grin. "We have
four now and expect the fifth any
day now."
Would Martin want his little
boy to be a football player? "I
don't know," he said laughingly.
"He might be too good looking.
I think he's cut out to be a ladies
