Longhorns Head AP Grid Poll;
Alabama, Northwestern Trail


Decision Gives

Piger Crown

By The Associated Press
Texas, 7-3 victor over 'Arkansas
last Saturday in the fifth straight
Longhorn win, is top team in the
nation via the Associated Press for
the second straight week.
Alabama and Northwestern, both
sporting spotless marks now mid-
way through the '62 fall, are rank-
ed in the second and third spots.
Coach Darrell Royal's Longhorns
have rolled up 110 points this fall
while giving up only 22. Rice is
Up in AFL
DALLAS (P)-Attendance in the
American Football League is up
31 per cent over last year and
some of the clubs are drawing well
enough to make money.
Twenty-six league games this
year have pulled in 591,000 specta-
tors for an average of 22,780 per
Last year the first 26 games
drew 452,000 for an average of
The clubs can make a profit or
at least break even with averages
of 22,000 to 28,000.
The only club that's down in
attendance this year is San Diego,
which drew 73,000 for three games.
Last year it had 10,000 more.
Nineteen of the games have been
over 20,000. The best draw was
34,496 that saw Denver play Hous-
ton last week.
Denver already has drawn more
for three games this year than for
all of last season. Denver has at-
tracted 84,948 this season. Last
year it was 74,000.
Nick Skorich of the Philadelphia
Eagles says he's going to get Hop-
along Cassady, who played a
standout game last week three
days after being picked up from
Cleveland, ready to start at the
wide- end position against Min-
nesota Sunday.
Cassady, picked up for the $100
waiver price last Thursday, caught
eight passes for 133 yards and two
touchdowns against the Redskins
even though he practiced with the
Eagles only once.
"We're going to work him at
that position (wide end) all week,"
said Skorich "so he'll learn the
patterns a little better."
In last Sunday's game, Cassady
had to ask the quarterback where
to run before each play.
Pick Roberts
Year winner
NEW YORK (M-Robin Roberts,
who showed flashes of the excel-
lence the past season that made
him one of the National League's
outstanding pitchers, was named
the American League comeback
player-of-the-year yesterday in
the annual Associated Press poll.
Roberts received 81 of the 106
votes in the balloting by members
of the Baseball Writers' Associa-
tion. Dick Donovan of Cleveland
was second with nine votes fol-
lowed by Hank Aguirre, Detroit
and Billy Moran of the Los An-
geles Angels, three each.
Cast Off
Cast off by the Philadelphia
Phillies and New York Yankees,
Roberts won. 10 games and lost
nine for the Baltimore Orioles
while compiling the second lowest
earned run average in the circuit,
2.77. In 1961, the veteran right-
hander won only one game and
lost 10.
In 14 seasons with the Phillies,.
Roberts had six 20-game winning
seasons in succession, 1950-55. He

was sold to the Yankees last fall
and they released him May 8. The
Orioles signed him as a free agent
two weeks later.
1952 Star
Roberts' most productive big
league year was 1952 when he won
28 games and dropped seven. He
led the senior loop in victories in
three other campaigns. His num-
ber36 uniform has be.n retired
by the Phillies.

next on the Texas ledger; the
Owls are winless, a 6-6 tie with
Louisiana State being the only pos-
itive note to three defeats.
Alabama is also 5-0; the Crim-
son Tide swept over Tennessee, 27-
7 a week ago and clash with Tu-
lane Saturday. Tulane is three and
two with losses to Oklahoma State
and Arkansas.
Quarterback Tom Myers has lit-
erally thrown Northwestern into
the national spotlight and the race
for the Big Ten crown. The Wild-
cats demonstrated that their pow-
er was not wholly speculative with
a convincing, come-from-behind
win over Ohio State last week, 18-
14, and wil step out of the confer-
ence to take on Notre Dame Sat-
urday. Down in South Bend the
Irish are still smarting from the
31-7 whipping from Michigan
USC Fourth
Southern California, r a n k e d
fourth this week, moves in to face
Illinois, winless in two years. The
Trojans: polished off California,
32-6, for their fourth straight vic-
tory while the Illinois were falling,
17-0 to Minnesota.
Big surprise in the Big Ten along
with Northwestern this fall is a
young Wisconsin team that has
not only demolished Iowa (42-14)
and Notre Dame (17-8) but is also
undefeated in its four .games this
fall. The Badgers are in the fifth
slot this week before getting the
big test Saturday from Ohio State.
Louisiana State (4-0-1) is rat-
ed sixth after a 7-0 win over Ken-
tucky. Florida is up next on the
LSU schedule and the Tigers en-
tertain Ole Miss on Nov. 3. Mis-
sissippi, seventh on the poll, tackles
winless Vanderbilt this week.

Washington (4-0-1) could be in
for a rugged afternoon against
Oregon (4-1), a team that lost only
to Texas 25-13 in its opener.
Ohio State - and Michigan-
were not ranked.

place votes and season records in

ger, the fighting pride of Nigeria,
ripped cuts over both of Gene
Fullmer's eyes last night while
pounding out a unanimous 15-
round decision to capture the
World Boxing Association middle-
weight championship.
In a bruising battle, the 159-
pound Tiger used sharper punch-
ing to lift the title that his 160-
pound foe from West Jordan,
Utah, had held since 1959.
Blood Gushed
Blood gushed from a slash over
Fullmer's left eye in the ninth
round and Tiger ripped a cut
over the right eye in the 10th.
Although the Fullmer corner
kept the cuts fairly well controlled
and Gene battled back gamely, the
Nigerian found the range con-


sistently, keeping the Mormon
battler in trouble.
Referee Frankie Carter scored
the bout 170-1, Judge Jack Down-
ey 9-5, and Judge Vern Bybee 7-5
-all for Tiger. The AP had the
new champion an 8-5 winner.
A crowd of about 12,500 in
Candlestick Park roared approval
of the slugging brawl between the
31-year-old Fullmer and the 33-
year-old Tiger. The bout was tel-
evised to 48 cities across the
country on a closed circuit.
When the decision was announc-
ed, a group of Nigerians in color-
ful native robes lifted the Tiger
to their shoulders and did an im-
promptu dance in the ring.
Fullmer had not lost in his last
17 fights and seven times had

successfully defended the crown he
won by beating Carmen Basillo
here on Aug. 28, 1959, But last
night, Tiger, whose true name is
Ihetu, had too much ammunition
for the Utah strong boy.
The challenger built up an early
lead while beating Fullmer to the
Fullmer alternately boxed and
blasted to the body to stay in
contention, until the big ninth
came for Tiger.

As the two battled on the ropes,
Fullmer came away from a vicious
exchange with an inch and a half
cut over the left eye. By the end
of the next round, he was bleed-
ing from both eyes, the nose and
Tiger used a stunning left h'iok
to the head and right to the body
to drive Fullmer into the ropes in
the third round. In the fourth, the
Utah fighter looked in distress
from a combination of rights and

lefts to the head. In the eighth,
Tiger took a shaking right to the
head-probably Fullmer's 1Ymost
telling shot of the night.
Largely, Fullmer's big smashes
were to the body and the well-
conditioned challenger did not
give much ground.
During the late rounds, Fullmer
went more to a boxing stiyle to
protect his eyes and both finished
with far more caution than they
had at the start.


Crisl'I'er Says New Rub(
Regarding Grid Head

NEW YORK (P)--Blocking with
the head in college football may
be ruled illegal because of the in-
creasing number of head and neck
injuries, Michigan Athletic Direc-
tor Herbert O. (Fritz) Crisler,
chairman of the National Collegi-
ate Athletic Association football
rules committee, predicted yester-
"One of two things will happen,"
said Crisler. "My guess is we will
get a different piece of headgear
or that the rules committee will
pass legislation that blocking with
the head will be illegal."

Webber's Libels Sit
On Rebound Hopes

Crisler, speaking before a Bruns-t
wick sponsored luncheon regardingi
the problem of high school foot-
ball injuries in general and foot-
ball head injuries in particular,
said the injury problem will bet
widely discussed at the annual
rules committee meeting set forc
Jan. 12-14 in Los Angeles, the<
week following the annual NCAA1
"There is really nothing wrong
with the manufacture of any hel-
mets," said Crisler, "but many
coaches have their players using
their heads in a spearing and gor-
ing manner. We ought to get some-1
thing in the rules about blocking1
with the head..
Responsibility for Safety f
"We as trustees and stewards of
the boys in college should make
football as safe as possible. Foot-
ball is truly one of the great con-
tact sports we have. We need the
game of football for our younger
generation. I think we will lick the
problem of fatalities in football."
Crisler emphasized that he was
speaking as an individual and not
as an official NCAA spokesman.
He said he is getting more mail

Rio ekingy
than ever regarding football injur-
New Technique
With the advent of the chin
strap and face mask on headgear,
Crisler said "a new technique has
developed. This is the mechanics
of blocking with the head. Many
coaches want their players to use
their head. (That's permissable
under present rules.)
"Rule changes are designed to
curb the injuries in football. In
deliberations on any rules, first,
and foremost is the safety of the
player. Better design of equipment
has helped cut down injuries to
the abdominal area but now there's
a growing concern about head and
neck injuries."

Still smarting from last Friday's
unbelievable loss to the Michigan
Union Undesirables, the Michi-
gan Daily Libels are sullenly
awaiting their next grid encounter:
a grudge match with the Michi-
gandensians on Nov. 2.
The tilt was scheduled as the
result of a challenge from Ron'
Kramer, who termed co-existence
with The Daily in the Student
Publications Bldg. "unprintable."
Bunch of Finkes
"Those Union guys were just a
bunch of Finkes," Kramer declar-
ed. "Wait till you see us play, espe-
cially me.'
He admitted, however, that tri-
ple-threat Dension star Linda Joel
would be unable to see any action.
She was injured in a recent scrim-
mage after demanding her quar-
Dissension Rife
Meanwhile, in the Libels camp,
dissension was rife. The first trou-
ble loomed when Wahoo Wilton
requested that his nickname be
However, head coach Dump
Webber flatly turned down the
request. "It was the best obscenity
beginning with 'w' that I oould
thing of," he explained.
Webber also threatened to de-
mote blocking back Fred Ruscle
(The Mussle) Kramer down to the
third-string after Kramer was de-

tected running for SGC. "I want
my boys' minds on' the game,"
Webber said, "and SGC just isn't
an on-campus issue."
Nevertheless, the still-seething
Wilton and Kramer were busy
drawing up plans for stringing up,

effigy," Wahoo commented.

it was at the latter position that
the Libels suffered their only in-
jury in the game with the Un-
desirables, as Kazzie Kalish is still
unable to recoil from the stooped-
over stance. He was last seen in-
specting loafer scuffs in the Twist
Rm. at the MUG.
