Habs' mentor Ruel resigns;
Ali-Bonavena tilt attacked
By The Associated Press
MONTREAL - Claude Ruel, chubby 32-year-old coach of the
Montreal Canadiens, resigned yesterday. He was replaced immediately
by Al MacNeil, his assistant for the last three months.
The decision to replace Ruel followed persistent reports here that
he was unhappy with his position and with performance. of the club.
Ruel had been coach of the National Hockey League club since
June, 1968.
" MacNeil was Ruel's choice as an assistant when the club decided
last September to hire someone to take some of the pressure from the
shoulders of the chunky Ruel.
Ruel remains with the club and reverts to his former post of
director of player development and chief scout.
ALBANY, N.Y. - Republican assemblyman yesterday de-
nounced next Monday's Muhammed Ali-Oscar Bonavena boxing match
as "a disgrace to the people of New York State."
Neil W. Kelleher of Troy voiced his protest in a telegram to New
York's Mayor John V. Lindsay, whom Kelleher criticized for not try-
ing to stop the match set for Madison Square Garden.
Kelleher said it was a disgrace "to allow a draft dodger to per-
form in our state and in your city on the anniversary of the Japanese
attack on Pearl Harbor."
Ali is appealing a prison sentence for refusing to submit to mili-
tary induction. His boxing license had been revoked by the State
Athletic Commission, but the action was overturned by the courts.
* OXFORD, Miss. - Another attempt was made yesterday to
fit Mississippi quarterback Archie Manning with a protective device
for his broken arm.
Official approval for, the leather sleeve is needed from Cliff
Norvell of Memphis, Tenn., umpire for the Southeastern Conference
football championship game against Louisiana State in Baton Rouge
tomorrow night.
Failure to win approval would mean Manning wound up his
brilliant collegiate career Nov. 7 when he broke his arm in the
Houston-Mississippi game.'

But for a desperate, game
saving tackle by a Stanford line-
backer, tomorrow's a n n u a 1
bloodletting between Texas and
Arkansas would be a carbon
copy of last year's classic battle.
A year ago Texas came from
behind, as quarterback James
Street led his Longhorns to two
fourth period scores and a 15-
14 triumph.
Both teams entered that con-
test unbeaten, and the game
decided not only the Southwest
Conference title, but the na-
tional championship as well. The
loss to Stanford gives the Raz-
orbacks no chance at national
honors, but they have the in-
centive of revenge, as well as a
shot at the conference crown
and a trip to the Cotton Bowl.
Despite the demonstrated ex-
cellence of the two teams, there
is a good chance that the loser
will not get to go to a bowl at
all. The only remaining open-
ing is in the Orange Bowl and
it will go to Louisiana State if it
defeats Mississippi in the week-
end's other big game.
contest could be the injuries
suffered by each of the teams.
The first blow fell on Texas,
when All-America end Cotton
Speyrer broke his arm against
Oklahoma. Danny Lester moved
over from the defensive second-
ary and has done a superb job,
grabbing 16 passes for 346 yards
and two touchdowns. Speyrer
feels that the Texas offense is
just as good with Lester, but
that his absence from the de-
fense is harmful.
With or without Lester the



Longhorn secondary ranks last
in the conference in pass de-
fense. Against UCLA, the Texas
defense was riddled by the pass-
ing of Dennis Dummit, and only
a last minute touchdown catch
by Speyrer saved the game for
Darrell Royal and his team.
Misfortune next fell the Raz-
orbacks, as star tailback Bill
Burnett suffered a shoulder sep-
aration. Considered the nation's
finest runner from inside the
ten yard line, Burnett is the
leading scorer in Southwest
Conference -history with 49
touchdowns and 294 points. Af-
ter extensive work on the in-
jured shoulder, there is a pos-
sibility that he will be ready for
tomorrow's game.
two of its star players were in-
jured in the annual game with
Texas A&M. Steve Worster,
considered by many the nation's
finest runner, suffered a hip in-
jury, and All-America defensive
end Bill Atessis pulled a, ham-
string muscle. Both are doubt-
ful starters this week.
Arkansas will enter the game
as the underdog, but definitely
has the weapons to achieve vic-
tory. Guiding the attack for the
Razorbacks will be supercool
quarterback Bill Montgomery, a
pinpoint passer and fine runner.
In the opener against Stanford,
Montgomery rallied his team
after a miserable first quarter
and nearly pulled off a dramatic
comeback win.
In that game, Jim Plunkett'
and Hillary Shockley led the In-
dians to 21 points in the first
quarter, and put 28 on the board
before Arkansas woke up. Then,

with Montgomery and sopho-
more halfback Jon Richardson
leading the way, the Razorbacks
came back to close to gap to
34-28. But on a fourth down
play with just 22 secondsdleft,
Montgomery was stopped a foot
short of a first down ending
Arkansas' hopes for an unbeat-
en season early.
The Razorbacks' other main
offensive weapon is wide re-
ceiver Chuck Dicus, one of the
finest ends in college football.
He and Montgomery have work-
ed together for three years on
the varsity, and now function as
a smooth unit, using Dicus' su-
perb moves and hands and
Montgomery's pinpoint accu-
The two have been devastat-
ing this season, and their sta-
tistics point this out etxremely
well. Montgomery has com-
pleted 101 of his 172 passes for
over 1500 yards, while Dicus has
gathered in 36 for 541 yards
and four scores.
In the backup role at quar-
terback is Joe Ferguson, a soph-
omore out of the same Shreve-
port, La., high school that pro-
duced Terry Bradshaw. Fergu-
son has been sensational when
called upon, completing 46 out
-of 80 passes for 738 yards. He
provides extremely competent
depth at the position, and can
be counted on if Montgomery
should be injured.
The two quarterbacks have
other targets to aim at besides
Dicus. Tight end Pat Morrison
is an excellent receiver in addi-
tion to being a superb blocker.
Split end Jim Hodge, too, is
highly competent, and has av-
eraged 24 yards for his 15
If Burnett does not play, the
main burden of the ground
game will fall to fullback Russ
Garber and the exciting Rich-
ardson. Garber, an excellent
blocker, has gained 409 yards
this season on only 81 carries.
Richrdson, the first black ath-
lete at Arkansas, has carried
97 times for 417 yards. A ver-
satile player, he has also made
16 receptions for 211 yards.
capabilities, t h e Razorbacks'
big advantage will be on de-
fense. They have yielded less
than 90 yards per game on the
ground, and the secondary has
accounted for 32 interceptions.
They are eighth in the nation
in total defense.
Maintaining those statistics
against Texas will take a su-
preme effort, however. The
Longhorns lead the nation in


rushing with an average of over
360 yards per game. Despite a
little used passing attack, they
are also fourth in total offense.
Last year, Texas relied heav-
ily on Street, a gutty, combative
player with a gift for leadership.
This year, Eddie Phillips has
taken over at quarterback and
performed extremely well. Spey-
rer, among others, feels Phil-
lips has done "at least as good
a job as Street." Phillips has
rushed for 598 yards, and passed
for another 649.
He is also adept at running
the triple option, Texas' bread
and butter play. With Worster
tearing up the middle of the
line, and speedy Jim Bertelson
going outside, the Longhorn
running game is devastating. If
Worster is unable to play, his
place will be taken by a sopho-
more, Ernie Fleming.
IF WORSTER cannot play,
it will definitely hurt the attack.
Along with his savage blocking,
he has carried the ball 139
times for 772 yards, averaging
5.6 per carry. Bertelson provides
the perfect complement and has
gained 702 yards in 118 carries.
Fleming has performed well in
relief, averaging 5.5 yards for
his 38 tries, and the fourth
member of the regular back-
field, Billy Dale, has added 298
Much of the credit for the
success of the ground game
goes to the offensive line, which
is anchored by as fine a pair
of tackles as there is in college
football. Bobby Weunsch is an
All-America, and many rate
sophomore Jerry Sisemore as
his equal.
The Longhorn defense relies
heavily on ends Atessis and Bill
Zapalac. If Atessis is not able to
play, it will put a great deal of
pressure on the linebackers, who
are led by the talented Scott
Over the past 12 years, when
Darrell Royal and Frank Broy-
les have been coaching the re-
spective teams, the rivalry has
been unmatched. Nine times the
winner has been the Southwest
Conference titlist, and the game
has decided the mythical na-
tional championship three times.
Royal holds the edge, eight wins
to four, but the 'games have
been decided by one touchdown
or less eight times.
Last year's game was billed
as the "Game of the Decade"
by the American Broadcasting
Company. That decade is. over
now, but after tomorrow, they
may have their game of the
next ten years.

If General Electric
can build an electric tractor,
why can'tthey build an
electric car?


Midwest Ski Capital

__ __ ___ ______ ii U



General Electric is marketing a
14-horsepower rechargeable electric
tractor capable of speeds up to 7
miles an hour.
We think it's a remarkable
innovation. But an electric car it's not.
As a garden tractor for home
use, Elec-Trak can take advantage of
characteristics that would be distinct
disadvantages in an electric car.
The availability of fuel is no
problem for Elec-Trak. it's designed
for limited use near electrified
structures, making overnight
recharging possible.
The heavy weight of the
battery, which would slow down a
car, means greater applied traction
for Elec-Trak.
Because Elec-Trak must travel
at slow speeds to do its jobs, there
are no aerodynamic energy lossesto
take into consideration..

Still, one might expect Elec-Trak
to be the forerunner of a pollution-
f ree automobile. Perhaps it is. But
there are many crucial problems left
to be solved.
The most important one, of
course, is the development of a
substantially better electric battery.
Any car built today would be severely
limited in range and performance,
and probably prohibitively expensive.
General electric is making
progress on new batteries, butthere's.
a long way yet to go.
We've experimented with zinc-.
air batteries. Sodium-sulfur batteries.
Silver-zinc batteries. Lithium-
halogen batteries. And others. There
are problems with all of them.
Problems of life-span, cost,
Despite the problems, General
Electric scientists and engineers are
working for the breakthrough'that
will make electric cars possible.

continue to work and leave the
predictions to someone else.
Why are we running this ad?
We're running this ad, and
others like it, to tell you the things
General Electric is doing to solve
the problems of man and his
environment today.
The problems concern us
because they concern you. We're a
business and you are potential
customers and employees.
But there's another, more
important reason. These problems
will affect the future of this country
and this planet. We have a stake in
that future. As businessmen. And,
simply, as people.
We invite your comments.
