BROWNS LEAD IN EAST:
Colts' Title To Hinge on 49er Game
Cagers Seek First Win
In Home Opener Tonight
By DON DRESCHER
This weekend is do or die for
many teams in both divisions of
the NFL title race as the 'regular
season schedule enters the last
Baltimore, currently setting the
pace in the Western Division, will
try to eliminate San Francisco.
The Forty-Niners are tied with
Detroit one game behind the Colts.
A Baltimore win would complete-
ly erase any hopes the Forty-
Niners have of winning the cham-
Both teams have been moving
well and both are armed with
good passing quarterbacks and
In the meantime the Lions can
expect troubles of their own in the
form of the Eastern Division lead-
er, Cleveland Browns. The Browns
need only one win in their re-
maining two games to clinch the
title in their segment. The Lions
have an even bigger stake in the
game. A loss could put them com-
pletely out of the running if Bal-
timore defeats the Forty-Niners.
A Detroit victory would also be
greatly appreciated by the New
york Giants who meet the Pitts-
burgh Steelers tomorrow after-
noon in a nationally televised
game. The Giants rest in second
place, a game and a half behind
In an intra-city tilt the Chicago
Bears face the Cardinals with
each team trying to pick up the
pieces of a mediocre season. The
Bears, currently fourth in the
West, could conceivably surge into
second by the season's end.
Los Angeles plays host to the
Green Bay Packers who will try
to raise themselves out of the
Western Division cellar. The West
is fairly tightly packed and there
is still a possibility for consider-
able juggling before the final
standings are in.

Michigan's basketball team will
open its home season tonight at
8:00 p.m. against the Cornhuskers
of Nebraska at Yost Field House.
Although this is.the second game
of the season for the Wolverines,
Coach Bill Perigo is hoping to start,
things all over again. His cagers
dropped their opener at Pittsburgh,
Wednesday night, when they were
practically run off the court, 72462.
Still pondering that initial de-
feat, Perigo is uncertain about his
starting lineup for tonight. He has
tentatively named the same team
that started against Pitt: Captain
Pete Tillotson and M. C. Burton
at forwards, Randy Tarrier at cen-
ter, and George Lee and Jack
Lewis at guards.
"Nebraska is a lot tougher than
Pitt," Perigo states. "They have
greater heighth and more return-
ees, according to the scouting re-
ports we have received." The Mich-
igan coach has taken advantage of
the Midwest Scouting Bureau to
get informaton about Nebraska.
Coach Jerry Bush will start Don
Schmidt and Willie Fitzpatrick at
forwards, Bob Mayo at center, and
Lyle Nannan and Captain Gary
Reimers at guards.
Although .Michig an's .starting
team will be slightly taller overall
than Nebraska, the Cornhuskers
are a lot taller than the Pittsburgh
team which completely dominated
the boards against the Wolverines
'Team Is Tired'
"We looked dead against the
Panthers," Perigo said. "Our team
is tired and isn't looking as sharp
as they did two weeks ago.",
Lee is suffering from a slight
charlie-horse, but is ready to play.
Some of the others have been
bothered by exams the past few
"If we can't outrebound them
with the usual starters, I will ex-
periment," the Wolverine coach
explained. "They are too good a
team to experiment against, but
I may have to juggle the lineup
The Panthers use the fast "give
and go" offense, in which they
screen for each other and move
the ball around alot. If Michigan
fails to rebound Perigo will substi-
tute smaller men like Billy Wright
and Terry Miller and try to outrun
Nebraska beat Wyoming Thurs-
day night, and is rated fourth in
the Big Eight, a tough basketball
conference including Kansas and
Wilt Chamberlain among others.

LITTLE SPEEDSTER - Guard Bill Wright,

basketball game with Nebraska. Coach Bill Peri-
go is edntemplating moving Wright into the
game early for added speed and defense if his
starting lineup has trouble with the Cornhiiskers.
Wright scored 17 points against Pitt Wednesday.

Cincinnati Trades Post
To Phillies for Haddix
By The Associated Press
COLORADO SPRINGS, Cola. (')
-The Cincinnati Redlegs last
night traded outfielder Wally Post
to the Philadelphia Phillies for
lefthanded pitcher Harvey Haddix.
It marked the second trade in
two days for the Redlegs, who have
been talking swaps to all National
League clubs in an effort to
strengthen their pitching staff.
At separate meetings yesterday,
the American and National
leagues voted to scrap the bonus
rule and to establish a four-year
The action ratified similar de-
cisions of the minor leagues
The American loop voted to
make the bonus rule retroactive.
This would free nine so-called.
bonus players in the junior circuit.
But the National League voted
to require the 12 bonus players in
that league to finish out their sta-
tus as bonus players.
-Walter O'Malley, faced with
mounting problems involving the
transfer of his Dodgers to Los
Angeles, said yesterday that it is
"possible but not probable" that
the team will return to Brooklyn
Was there a chance of the Dod-
gers returning to Brooklyn?
"No," O'Malley said. "There is
no chance of the Dodgers return-
ing to Brooklyn." Then he added
quickly: "Let me put it this way.
It is possible but not probable."
