Yachting Cup Series To Start

The equivalent to Baseball's
World Series begins in yachting
tomorrow when Australia's Gretel
begins its quest to become the
first yacht in the 111-year history
of the America's Cup to claim the
coveted trophy.
Weatherly, skippered by the
very competent Bus Mosbacher,
will be Gretel's opposition in the
four of seven series between the
two 12-Meter boats. Newport, R. I.,
the scene of this summer's num-
erous trials to pick an American

-defender, will also be the scene of
cup competition.
Like 1958?
Many yachting enthusiasts fear
that this series will be as big a
flop as the 1958 races when Brit-
ain's Sceptre couldn't come close
to defender Columbia.
Probably the biggest reason for
this feeling is that Columbia
couldn't earn the right to defend
again. In the first trials held in
July, Columbia rated third behind
Nefertiti and Weatherly.

Nefertiti, the newest of all the
12-Meter yachts competing in the
trials, became the sentimental fa-
vorite of many after the July
trials. The Marblehead, Mass.
yacht, which proved to be un-
beatable in rough weather, emerg-
ed from the July trials with the
best record of the four boats.
Weatherly, skippered by Mos-
bacher, recognized to be the most
able of the four helmsmen, ended
the July trials solidly in second
place, while Columbia, which so
masterfully crushed the British
challenger in 1958, rated a medi-
ocre third. The fourth boat, East-
erner, proved to be the biggest
flop of the four yachts.
Second Set
In the second set of trials held
in August, Columbia along with
Easterner were eliminated early
in the competition, leaving Wea-
therly and Nefertiti.
It was close to a runaway for
the New York boat. Nefertiti's only
hope against Mosbacher was heavy
air, something that never came.
Since Gretel's arrival in Newport
earlier in the summer, the town
has been bustling with rumors.
Gretel has been working out with
Vim, a 12-Meter yacht which nar-
rowly missed being chosen to de-
fend the cup in 1958.
Hauled Out
Both Gretel and Weatherly were
hauled out of the water yesterday.
As is customary in a new tech-
nique used extensively for the firsti
time this season, the boats will be
washed with fresh water inside
and then dried with large, portable
hot air blowers.
This eliminates many pounds of
surplus weight in the 70-ft.
wooden hulls. The boats get wet
inside from spray and from soggy
sails that have been taken below
through the hatches during sail
The races are slated to begin
shortly after noon Saturday some
nine miles off Brenton Reef Light
Ship in Naragansett Bay. The first!
boat to capture four races wins
or retains the 111-year-old Amer-
ica's Cup.
Senator Urges
Athletic Meets
bert Humphrey (D-Minn) appeal-
ed recently for high geared pre-
parations to make - sure that.
United States athletes aren't

The Minnesota senator said,
beauty contests and pageants from'

it is time to sponsor also "athletic'

NFL Opens,
On Sunday
There's nothing like starting off
the season against a last .place
team, and that is exactly what
Green Bay's Packers will be doing
Sunday when they take the field
against the Minnesota Vikings in
the first week of NFL title com-
Not that it matters whom they
played in their first game, for
Vince Lombardi's Packers figure to
make it three in a row in the
Western division.
Signficantly, most of the inter-
est in this year's NFL competition
seems to be centered around the
first-place race in the East and
the second-place race in the West.
Assuming that Green Bay over-
powers its opponents in the fash-
ion of the last two seasons, it is
reasonable to as it has done for
the past two seasons, it is easy to
understand why and not worth the
time and space to explain it.
The picture in the east, however,
is not nearly as clear. The defend-
ing champion Giants lost line-
backer Cliff Livingston, defensive
back Dick Nolan, quarterback
Charlie Conerly, and end Kyle
The Eagles' offense is as solid as
ever, if not ven more so. Except
for a weakness at guard, where
rookie Pete Case of Georgia must
develop, the Eagles' offensive ma-
chinery is oiled, primed, and set to
roll. The Birds lost Bill Barnes, a
hard running halfback, to the Red-
skins for center Jim Schrader and
defensive back Ben Scotti, but an
offensive backfield of Ted Dean,
Clarence Peaks, Tim Brown, Ther-
on Sapp, Sonny Jurgensen, King
Hill, and Tommy MacDonald, will
hardly miss Barnes. Deficits are
the poor recovery of ace safety-
man Tom Brookshier from a knee
operation which may bench him
for the rest of the season, an aging
Chuck Bednarik, and the same odd
failure for the big runners to gain
yardage with any consistency-
possibly because of an offensive
line geared almost exclusively to
protecting Jurgensen.
The Browns traded away Milt
Plum to the Lions for Bill Glass,
Jim Ninowski, and Hopalong Cas-
sidy. Shortly after the trade, the
Brownsnfound out the genuinely
tragic news that Davis was suf-
fering from a blood disorder and
would be out for the season. This,
came after the Browns had given
up Bobby Mitchell and Leroy Jack-
son to the Redskins to get Davis.
The Browns have strengthened
their lines, especially with defen-
sive end Glass, already have an
excellent offensive line, have a
young improving defensive back-
field, and are gambling on Ninow-

last year. Their main hope lies in
more depth - a luxury Parseghian
has had to do without for many
years. Because of all this depth,
the Wildcats will employ the pla-
toon system this year, especially
at the center and quarterback po-
The loss of all-conference cen-
ter and linebacker Larry Onesti
coupled with the loss of tackles
Fate Echols and Bud Melvin, and
Al Kimbrough, halfback and safe-1
ty, left four holes to fill and Par-!
seghian will have a tough time
plugging them.
Iowa, which finished last season
with the same record as North-
western, will have to overcome in-
juries and ineligibility losses to
men in key positions if they ex-
pect to do anything in the Big
Ten this year.
The ineligibility of fullback Joe
Williams and end Felton Rogers
has offset the return of All-Amer-
ica candidate Larry Ferguson at
halfback. He missed nearly the
whole season last year after run-
ning for over seven yds. a carry
the season before.
Coach Jerry Burns sees his
weaknesses in the alternate units
which are inexperienced. Matt
Szykowny, who enjoyed a fine sea-
son last year, appears to be the
only quarterback of any value.
The only other quarterbacks are
sophomore Bob Wallace and junior
Ron Brocavich. Neither of them
have the experience to run a win-
ning team.
Indiana and Illinois had their
own race last season. Illinois won,
but only because they played one
more game.

Three Wolverine Gridders
Vie for Punting Assignment

(Continued from Page 1)
"If two or three of them are in,
the probable order of preference
will be O'Donnell, then Rindfuss,
then Prichard, but this is subject
to change without notice.
"If we adopt the Paul Dietzel
three-unit system this year, we
won't necessarily put one punter

on each unit. With the wild-card
substitution rule in effect, we can
always run in a punter from the
sidelines if there isn't one already
on the field."
But there won't be too many
complaints around these quarters
if there isn't a Wolverine punter
on the field all season. No offense
intended, of course.
