Texans Move to Kansas City

)I i

By The Associated Press
KANSAS CITY-Millionaire La-
mar Hunt, owner of the American
Football league champion Dallas
Texans, moved his club to Kan-
sas City yesterday, admitting de-
feat in the three-year dollar-war
ovith the Dallas Cowboys of the
rival National Football League.
After three years of losses at
the gate, estimated at $1,250,000,
Hunt said he was convinced that
two pro elevens could not prosper
in Dallas. In 1952, a Dallas entry
in the NFL lasted only a half

oil millionaire, werendenied fran-
chises in the NFL for Houston and
Dallas. After the AFL was an-
nounced, the NFL immediately
gave a franchise to another Dal-

las group and set the stage for
the dollar-war that has been con-
tinuing ever since.
Other teams in the AFL are San
Diego, which originally was plac-
ed at Los Angeles; Oakland, Den-
ver, Houston, Boston, New York,
and Buffalo.

Others include Philadelphia at-

The Nationals were purchased
early this month from Danny Bias-
sene, who will remain with the
team as a consultant. The price
was announced as $500,000.

BRUSSELS-The Belgian sports
daily "Les Sports" yesterday criti-
cized Avery Brundage, the Ameri-

can president of the International
Olympic Committee, for his sup-
port of Berlin as the site of the
1968 Olympic Games.
"One will undoubtedly be aston-
ished by the crashing statements
of M. Avery Brundage in favor
of Berlin," the paper said.
"The astonishment will be still
greater because of the fact that
chances of the former Reich's
capital being chosen look rather
slim. To entrust this organization
to this city, which is one of the
hot spots of the cold war, is to
invite the youth of the world to
dance over a volcano."
Rangers Get Meissner
NEW York-The New York
Rangers of the National Hockey
League acquired Dick Meissner,
23-year old right wing, from the
Boston Bruins yesterday.
The Rangers took an option on
Meissner last winter ;as a part of
a deal that sent Dean Prentice to
Boston for Don McKenney.
Meissner played last season with
Hershey, Pa., of the American

E Don Canham sat alone on the
topmost row of Minnesota's Mem-
orial Stadium. It was the second
day of the outdoor Big Ten cham-
pionships, and just yesterday Can-
ham had watched his team.elim-
inate themselves from title conten-
tion with a series of costly errors.
Suddenly, Canham rises, takes
five quick strides down the row,
spins around and takes five more
strides back to his seat and sits
Canham had just witnessed his
120-yd. hurdler, Cliff Nuttall, up-
set the field and surprise most
track prognosticators, with a yard
win over Wisconsin's favorite,
Steve Muller.
All But Two
Probably the only ones in all
Minneapolis who weren't dumb-
founded by the event were Can-
ham and Nuttall.
"You enter every race with the
idea you are going to win it. There
is no sense to running if you think
you are going to finish second or
third," commented Nuttall later.
The time for the event was :14.3,
far from a record but still good
enoughfor a conference crown.
For Nuttall, a junior, the Big
Ten title had more than just its
surface meaning, that this man is
the fastest man in the Big Ten at
learing eight 42" hurdles over a
distance of 120 yds.
" Debt Retirement
It was a payment on a debt that
the native of Concord, Ont., owed
to Don Canham for giving him a
chance for an education. "I think
of it as sort of a job. It gives guys
who are eager and hungry, and
I consider myself hungry, a chance
to get to college," Nuttall says.
It was Canham who spotted the

potential of the gangly Canadian
hurdler, but it was his high school
coach, Charlie Seath, who first
gave Nuttall =n opportunity to
show and develop his talent.
"I" never ran the hurdles until
1960, my senior year in high
school. I was a high jumper up
until that time, my best jump was
6'1", and then my school bought
a full set of hurdles. Seath asked
me if I wanted to try them out.
I did, and I liked them so much
I stuck with them instead of high
jumping. If it wasn't for Seath I
probably would be pumping gas
somewhere. He was the one who
convinced me I could do some-
thing in athletics."
Nuttall came close to going to
Wisconsin, which would have given

New Captain
Of Tracksters
Roger Schmitt, a junior from
Buffalo, was elected captain of
Michigan's track team yesterday.
Schmitt came within inches of
the Big Ten record in the shot put
last Saturday when he hit 56'6%"
to become the outdoor conference
champion. He edged the co-favor-
ites, teammate George Puce and
defending titlist Elmars Ezerins
of Wisconsin, to help Michigan
finish third in the team stand-
