HE'S NOT DENYING:
Paul Brown Seen Deserting
Pro Football for College Job
CLEVELAND -- ( ) - Paul E.
3rown, coach and general man-
ager of the Cleveland Browns, will
resign as chief of the All-America
Football Conference champs and
return to the intercollegiate field
That's a flat statement, and
probably "Precision Paul" would
not confirm it, but folk closest to
the former Massillon High, Ohio
State and Great Lakes mentor
know that it is true.
A SOURCE as close to Brown as
a source can be declared today :
"If Paul is offered a worthwhile
intercollegiate coaching job, he
will make a move after this sea-
son. And that 'worthwhile' offer
need not be in terms of money.
He'll take the first job that's
worthy of his talents."
Asked why Brown would give
up his lucrative job with the
Browns-his contract calls for
$25,000 annually plus a portion
of the "gate"-the spokesman
"Paul never reckoned on getting
into a football war, and he has
no stomach for such things.
"BROWN IS A football coach,
probably the best technician in
the country. He is proud of his
teams, but he doesn't like this
eternal conflict between his league
and the National.
"Both conferences are feeling
the effects of the war. The fight
is hurting everyone, not only
because of the increased player
salaries due to the bidding for
talent, but because of the de-
creased public interest due to
the lack of an over-all cham-
"B6th sides are getting sick of
the war, naturally. The Browns are
outdrawing everyone, but aren't
doing too well financially. Look at
the Chicago Bears. Why George

Asked about the report he would
return to the collegiate field,

AFTER LAST WEEK'S seven out of nine correct predictions we
upped our season's average to .711 and this week we'll try to raise
it even further.
The two losses we suffered were at the hands of Ohio State as the
Buckeyes beat our choice, Indiana, by a decisive 17-0 count and of
course our Navy team sank completely as Missouri walloped the
But from hereon the games get really tough. So let's see what we
can do with this week's top ten games.
MICHIGAN-MINNESOTA-This is the one that really counts.
Michigan must win to have a clear path to the Conference crown,
and the Gophers need this one for many reasons. They need it to save
face, to stay in the running for the title and the Rose Bowl bid, and
for almost any other reason you can thinky of. But Michigan has got
more speed than Minnesota can cope with. The Wolverines in their
ILLINOIS-PURDUE-The Boilermakers are finally moving
after dropping their first three games. Illinois is having a very
poor season and they are on the skids. Purdue by a comfortable
OHIO-STATE-WISCONSIN-The Buckeyes are the most im-
proved club in the conference. They've only lost one game thus far.
The Badgers, on the other hand, have been having trouble and the
Wisconsin fans are screaming for Coach Harry Stuldreher's scalp.
This is the week that the Badgers must redeem themselves. We think
Wisconsin will win in a real upset.

overconfidence, and barringkthis,
the Wolverines should rack up

INDIANA-PITT-Clyde Smith has finally found himself a
breather. The Panthers have added a few teeth since last season,
but not enough to make them dangerous. Indiana should win this
one and still have enough left to give Minnesota a good battle in
their next game.
NORTHWESTERN-SYRACUSE--This one is a farce. The Orange
and Black of Syracuse should be Black and Blue before the Wildcats
get through. Northwestern has a lot of lost pride to regain and the hap-
less Syracusans are elected as the lambs to be led to slaughter.
Northwestern in a romp.
PENN STATE-MICHIGAN STATE-The Nittany Lions are un-
defeated. The Spartans have lost to Michigan and Notre Dame. Now
the problem is can their speed and deception counteract the power
of the Pennsylvanians. Most people say no, but on a hunch we're
going to pick Michigan State in a real humdinger of a ball game.
ARMY-CORNELL-A couple of undefeated giants of the East
collide in one of the day's best games. But Army has a fine back-
field and a great runner in Bobby Jack Stuart. Cornell has better
reserves, but the Army should still triumph.
PENN-NAVY-There isn't much that can be said about Navy.
To this corner they're a disappointment. Penn is strong and the Navy
hasn't got one team on their schedule that is a soft touch. We're aban-
doning that sinking ship and sticking to the Quakers of Pennsylvania,
HARVARD-DARTMOUTH-In another top Ivy League clash the
Michigan of the East faces Dartmouth Indians. Since their upset win
over Columbia in their first game they haven't crashed the win column.
Dartmouth is also strong, but Harvard should win this one.
