Packers played 30 minutes of football against the Colts and worked up a 10 to 7 lead at halftime in the Milwaukee opener two weeks ago. This first half display was just terrific in view of the manner in which the Colts had ruined the Bears and Lions on the two previous Sundays. But, alas, the Bays did nothing in the second half - except allow 38 points, and the Colts won 45 to 17. The Colts had trouble once going the full 60 - in Detroit last Sunday. They were ahead by 27 to 3 with 20 minutes to go and the Lions won 31 to 27...BRIEFS: The Colts' Art Donovan, veteran defensive tackles, is in his 10th pro football season. He's 31 and an "ex" from Boston College...Carroll Rosenbloom, majority owner of the Colts, told a banquet in Baltimore this week: "Not only do we have a good football team, I believe we'll prove we have a great football team."...Les Bingaman, the Detroit Lions' former 300-pounder, is in a Detroit hospital with pneumonia - in fair condition...The home team has won 14 of the 24 games played in the NFL thus far this season. The "homers", in four of the six games last Sunday, scored victories, the exceptions being Green Bay and Washington. The Packers will be out to change some of that Sunday. As a matter of fact, Green Bay will be playing its first road game of the season Sunday. And it could signal a change in the Packers' one win-three loss fortunes...The Packers will leave for Baltimore in two chartered North Central plane at 8 o'clock Saturday morning from Austin Straubel Field. They'll arrive in Baltimore at 1 o'clock, Green Bay time. The Bays will return to the Bay right after the game in the same planes, arriving here about 11:30.
IF PACKERS CAN TURN TABLES ON COLTS SUNDAY, IT WILL BE IN LINE WITH PRO LEAGUE PATTERN
OCT 25 (Milwaukee Journal) - If the Green Bay Packers upset the Baltimore Colts Sunday, they will merely be following a turnabout pattern already established by the Detroit Lions, Chicago Cardinals and Philadelphia Eagles. Three games in the four week old NFL season have been rematches. In each case, it produced a reversal of the first result. The Lions just lost to the Colts, 34-14, then overcame them in a return match, 31-27; the Cardinals lost to the Washington Redskins, 34-17, then won in the return engagement, 44-14; and the Eagles lost to the Cleveland Browns, 24-7, then won the encore, 17-7. The Lions reversed scores by 24 points, the Cardinals by 53 points and the Eagles by 27. The Packers dropped the first game with the Colts, 45-17, and their Wisconsin stock plummeted. That defeat, along with setbacks at the hands of the Lions and San Francisco 49ers, set the wolves to howling. Two other games in the Western Division Sunday will also be rematches. Should the Chicago Bears beat the 49ers and the Los Angeles Rams whip the Lions, the current leaders - 49ers, Colts and Lions - would still be tied for the lead but would be only one game off the pace. And with more than half the season to go anything might still happen. The co-leaders would be 3-2 and the second division clubs 2-3. Statistically, the Packers have no business beating the Colts. The Packers have given up 1,268 yards, the Colts 924 yards. The Packers have gained 949 yards, the Colts lead the league with 1,422. Just about all the Packers can boast about statistically are Dick Deschaine, the league's leading kicker, with a 47-9 average in 18 boots, and Bobby Dillon, the league's second best interception man with five. The Colts, on the other hand, have leaders aplenty in individual statistics. Lenny Moore is fifth in rushing with 221 yards in 39 carries, an average of 5.7 yards. John Unitas is third in passing efficiency with 9.13 yards per completion. End Jim Mutscheller is the scoring leader with seven touchdowns. The Colts, the "Braves" of pro football in the support they have drawn in Baltimore, expect a crowd of about 40,000. In their two previous home starts, they have attracted crowds of 40,112 and 46,558. After they lost their first start last Sunday to the Lions in Detroit, a crowd of 8,000 welcomed the team home.
HORNUNG SURE TO SEE MORE ACTION
OCT 25 (Milwaukee Sentinel) - Paul Hornung is bound to see a lot more NFL action beginning Sunday against the Colts at Baltimore. What have the Packers got to lose? Their bonus choice has the best running average, picking up 80 yards in 12 carries for 6.7 yards per crack. But as a passer the former Notre Dame Golden Boy has completed one out of three tosses for a net loss of one yard. That explains why he's not calling the shots yet. Coach Liz Blackbourn would give anything to see Hornung develop into his No. 1 quarterback. That, of course, depends if and when he can out-throw Bart Starr or Babe Parilli. "A lot of attention was given Hornung's passing in drills this week," Blackbourn said Thursday. "I think he's coming around as good as any rookie." A strong-armed passer, Hornung repeated passing plays until he hit the mark. At what position Hornung plays against the Colts is undecided. At the moment, Blackbourn placed him at fullback behind Fred Cone. If Blackbourn could start three quarterbacks at the same time he might very well find the touchdown touch which was missing in the last three games. Starr throws the most accurate pass (56.9%), Parilli puts more fire in his pitches and Hornung can run. The Colts, who walloped the Packers, 45-17, at the Stadium two weeks ago, are a 10-point choice to win again. "Well do better time. I'm sure of that," Liz said. "The Lions stopped their running attack by stacking up their defense. But then the Colts went to the air and completed two long touchdown passes to Moore and Mutscheller. You just can't play out of a normal position and expect to contain them," continued Blackbourn. For the second week in succession, the Colts led the league in total yards gained (1,422). In rushing Baltimore has gained 688 yards and in passing, 734. The Packers have picked up 949 total yards, 436 rushing and 513 passing. Blackbourn reported five Packers were fighting colds. They were Babe Parilli, Jim Temp, Hank Gremminger, Al Carmichael and Jim Ringo. Slotback Ron Kramer sill isn't operating at top efficiency because of an injured ankle sustained in the first Colt game. Howie Ferguson, the club's top ground gainer (104 yards), had not hurt his knees in the last four games and is rarin' to roll as a halfback. The Packers found it all but impossible at their Green Bay Stadium practice field during this week's heavy rain storms. There's no indoor arena available if weather conditions get bad.
ROWDIES AT COLT GAMES ARE FACING CRACKDOWN
OCT 25 (Baltimore) - The Department of Parks and the Baltimore Colts today took steps to crack down on spectators who start fights or are otherwise unruly at Colt football games at Memorial Stadium. Charles A. Hook, superintendent of parks, said he was meeting with Capt. G. Gordon Gaeng, of the Park Police, to see what can be done to eliminate unpleasant incidents...PINKERTON MEN PRESENT: Complaints have been received of fist fights, shoving and the use of abusive language by a few of the spectators, most of whom appeared to be intoxicated. Donald Kellett, general manager of the Colts, said fans disturbed by rowdies should make an immediate complaint to the nearest Pinkerton private policeman on duty. The Pinkerton men then will report the incident to the park police. There are about 150 Pinkerton men employed for each game by the Colts. Captain Gaeng said there will be a detail of twenty policemen under the supervision of a lieutenant at Sunday's game with the Green Bay Packers. More than 40,000 fans are expected. Both Mr. Hook and Captain Gaeng said it was extremely difficult to police such a large crowd. They added they did not think there was any above-average disorder at the games. Captain Gaeng said his men would not allow fans to take satchels and coolers full of alcohol beverages into the Stadium. The law forbids this...MANY LEAVE LIQUOR: He said each Sunday his men make numerous spectators leave their portables at the administration building to be picked up after the game. The captain said one of his chief worries is that spectators will take bottles and other hard objects to the stand, where they might be thrown onto the field or out of the upper deck into the lower deck. He said his men "will keep the pressure on." Already there have been twelve arrests. Several fights have been observed at previous games. There also has been reports of fans using abusive language. "That type of person does not belong in the Stadium," Mr. Hook said.
PACKERS PUT MORE POWER IN BACKFIELD
OCT 25 (Baltimore) - Howie Ferguson, big Packer line smasher, will be moved to left halfback for the rematch with the Colts Sunday in Memorial Stadium. His fullback berth will be taken over by Fred Cone, a veteran of seven pro football seasons. The switch of Ferguson will give the Packers two big men in their offensive backfield, adding power to both the inside and outside running attack and affording the passers two big blockers to stop the Colt forward wall...ONE OTHER CHANGE: There will be one other change in the Green Bay lineup, which the Colts earlier this month subdued, 45 to 17, in Milwaukee. That will find Max McGee, just out of the Air Force, at offensive end for the injured Gary Knafelc. McGee did a fine job in his first game last week, catching three passes for 68 yards. Although the Packers lost to the San Francisco Forty-Niners, the performance of the Green Bay team has led Coach Lisle Blackbourn to believe his charges are ready to regain their winning stride. According to Tom Miller, Pack publicist, the Packers were hoping the Colts would beat the Lions last week so that the Baltimore forces would come into Sunday's game overconfident...SILENT ON STARTER: Miller said the Packer quarterback will not be announced until game time. Green Bay has three with Bart Starr and Babe Parilli sharing most of the work. The other signal caller is Paul Hornung, former Notre Dame great. Miller reminded, however, that Hornung's performance in the Forty-Niner game may each for him a more prominent position in the Packer scheme of things. Paul drove the Packers 59 yards to a touchdown in just four plays against the 49ers. His running from the quarterback spot was largely responsible for keeping the march going. Because of the Colts' earlier victory, the Packers figure to be tougher for the local tea, in this rematch. Apparently, a pro football team that has been defeated once by an opponent can get mentally ready for the rematch easier than the initial victory...LIONS LOST OPENER: The Colts have already found that out in the second go round with the Detroit Lions. Although the Lions lost, 24 to 14, to the Colts here in the opening game of the season, the Motor City crew avenged that with a 31 to 27 triumph last Sunday. What worries the Colt coaches about the rematch with the Packers is: Will the startling loss to the Lions last Sunday disturb Baltimore's mental equilibrium. One of the Colts was overheard the other day saying: "We lost the big one." Each game in the NFL is a big one. The difference between the champions and the also ran is the champs can bounce back.
SUNLIGHT ON SPORTS
OCT 25 (Baltimore) - Carroll Rosenbloom has been owner of the Baltimore Colts' football franchise since 1953, and there isn't a player, coach or employee of the club who wouldn't fight for him. But the players and coaches would only have to talk to some of their predecessors to learn that things were not always so glorious. Rosenbloom is a hard loser, but a gracious winner. He doesn't brag when the Colts knock off the Chicago Bears or Green Bay Packers, but you can see the delight that's in his eyes when his team comes galloping home a winner. It's to Carroll's credit and wisdom that he decided to retain Weeb Ewbank as head coach when people outside the organization were speculating a change would be made. Ewbank has done a good job since coming to Baltimore in 1954. There were reports last winter that Weeb would be fired. Actually, Carroll never said he would replace his coach. What he did say was: "I'm unhappy with a loser - in any of my businesses - and I want to talk with our coach because it's his responsibility to handle the team."...LINE FORMS HERE: It is common knowledge that the Colt coaching job is most desirous. When it was rumored a vacancy would exist here, Rosenbloom was besieged by would-be applicants. There never was, however, any real question about Weeb's future in Baltimore. Ewbank and General Manager Don Kellett flew down to Palm Beach, Fla., last February for a lengthy meeting with Rosenbloom. Ewbank was told by Rosenbloom that he was his coach and that he had every confidence in him to do the job. Weeb has justified Carroll's faith. When a report came out of Detroit that Buddy Parker was headed for Baltimore to take over the Colts, Rosenbloom phoned Ewbank to assure him there would be no change in the local setup. In fact, Rosenbloom, who is well informed in league affairs as well as in local activities, predicted at the time that Parker would probably windup with the Steelers. A week later, Parker signed with the Steelers. Many of Rosenbloom's business techniques have been fitted into the operation of the Colts. The club has its own policy manual, governing such things as the locker room, ticket office and procedure of the team on the day of a game...HE'S HAPPY NOW: Rosenbloom is happy with the showing of the Colts thus far, and nothing would make him happier than a victory Sunday over Green Bay in the Stadium. And the fans are going all out in support of the Colts, Ewbank and Rosenbloom. It might be that the largest crowd of the season will be on hand for Sunday's game. The Colt ticket office reported last night that 10,000 tickets still are available, and that means fans making a last-minute rush for seats can be accommodated. When we talked with Carroll earlier in the week, he said: "This game with Green Bay is important, and don't think that the one-sided score the last time was indicative of the true strength of the two clubs. The Packers are a good team, sure, and they will be fired up against our men. But our Colts are great and every one in our organization realizes that we will be put to the test come Sunday." Not only is all of Baltimore and Maryland talking about the success of the Colts, but fans all over Southeastern Pennsylvania have been flocking into Baltimore for the games. The Colts have become an interesting team to watch because of their versatility. Of course, the Packers can supply some fireworks on Sunday. They have such stars as Paul Hornung of Notre Dame; Ron Kramer of Michigan; Babe Parilli of Kentucky; Bill Howton of Rice; Al Carmichael of Southern California, and Dave Hanner of Arkansas. The Packers upset the Bears in their opener but have dropped three in succession. Their record is just the opposite of the Colts. Form means little in professional football. You can throw the records out the window and forget about previous results. That's because the teams only play a 12-game season and the playing talent has been equalized via the player selection system developed by Bert Bell.
PRO FOOTBALL AT IT WAS IN EARLY YEARS
OCT 25 (Baltimore) - Tom Miller, advance man for Green Bay, came in to talk about the Colts' opponents for Sunday in the Stadium. However, he made a mistake. He brought along a copy of the "Dedication" program the Packers prepared for the opening of their 32,000-seat stadium last month. It stirred memories of 30 years with its highlights of professional football's early NFL days and my experience as a young official only recently out of college. I heard Miller say the Packers were rid of their physical miseries, still convinced they have a fine football team which will beat more than one opponent and it may as well be the Colts. But more vividly was the reorganization of the American Professional Football Association by Joe Carr in 1921. That was the beginning of the National League and pro football as we know it today. The APFA was started the year before with Jim Thorpe as president. Its life was short, as was the case with so many NFL teams over the next quarter century...CARDINALS OLDEST FRANCHISE: To appreciate that, let it be stated there have been 54 cities in 17 states, plus the home of the Washington Redskins, which have been affiliated with the present 12-club, 11-city league. By 1922, there were 22 teams in the NFL. By 1943, there were only eight. Millions had been lost in the promotion of pro football. Millions also have been made by those with courage, perseverance, cash and know-how. Most conspicuous example is Chicago (Bears), under George Halas, followed by Washington, which was $80,000 in the red when George Marshall transferred it from Boston. Tim Mara got the New York Giants franchise in 1925 for $2,500. If you asked which are the charter members of the NFL, chances are you would say Green Bay and the Chicago Bears. It is neither. The oldest franchise is the Chicago Cardinals, members of the APFA in 1920...SQUADS LIMITED TO 18: Halas' club was then known as the Staleys of Decatur. It got a franchise as the Chicago Bears in '22, the same year Curly Lambeau raised $500 from the employees of the Indian Packing Company for a team. Green Bay considers that the beginning of its tremendous struggle in pro football. And it has been a struggle. Each player on that first team got less than $100 for his season's work. As late as 1946, the club had to be refinanced for the third or fourth time. But always the people of Green Bay have come through. Today, over 1,700 own stock. In those early days, the Giants played on Long Island before moving to the Polo Grounds. Philadelphia was known as the Frankford Yellowjackets, played on Saturday afternoons in a wooden park that resembled our old Bugle Field. The teams which played there Saturday met again on Sunday. Maybe in New York. Maybe in Pottstown. And with no more than 18 players. That was the maximum. Of course, a few faces would be different. They were college men under assumed names who had also played on Saturday. It wasn't until '35 that the player limit was raised to 25, not until '48 it reached the present 35. Pro football's growth was very, very slow...VITAL CHANGES IN 1933-34: The NFL considers its first milestone in the game's history was Red Grange's signing, and tour, with the Chicago Bears. I think even more important was the rule adopted the following February that no college player thereafter would be
PACKER FRAY WILL TEST DEFENSES
OCT 25 (Baltimore) - Don't be surprised if the Colts' return game with Green Bay, at Memorial Stadium Sunday, turns out to be a defensive struggle. One of the major factors in the regeneration of the home team has been the play of its defense, formerly one of its weakest links...LINE CAUGHT FIRE: The rebuilt "Ferocious Five" has caught fire on the line. The loss of Bill Pellington in the linebacking corps was overcome by shifting Don Shinnick in as a steady on the right, and the backfield, sparked by rookies Milt Davis and Andy Nelson, has shown surprising strength. Until last Sunday's shocker in Detroit, the Baltimore defense had permitted only 99 yards overland in three games and had held the Packers to a mere 47 in an earlier clash in Milwaukee...PROUD OF DEFENSE: Coach Liz Blackbourn of Green Bay is proud of his defenses, too. Aside from the first meeting with the Colts, in which the Packers were snowed under by a 45-17 count, he feels the defensive unit has done a fine job. Last week, the Wisconsinites lost their third straight game after winning their seasonal opener against the Chicago Bears. Yet they held the rugged San Francisco Forty-Niners to only 78 yards on the ground, and Hugh McElhenny, one of the top ball carriers, could earn only 38...INTERCEPTED 4 PASSES: What's more, Green Bay picked off four aerials by Y.A. Tittle, and its own mistakes on offense, two interceptions and a pair of fumbles, led to the Californians' 24-14 triumph that jumped the West Coast eleven in to a first-place tie in the Western Division with the Colts and Lions. Coach Weeb Ewbank of the Colts will go along with Blackbourn's thinking. "Green Bay could just as easily have won last week as lost," he points out. "It was in the game all the time."...A REFURBISHED LINE: When End Coach Bob Shaw began scouting the Packers during the training season, he reported the visitors had the toughest defensive line he ran across during his travels. It's a refurbished line, too, with only three holdovers - tackles Hawg Hanner and Jerry Helluin and right end Nate Borden - remaining from last year. Carlton Massey, from the Cleveland Browns, has taken over at left end, allowing the veteran John Martinkovic to go to the New York Giants, with Jim Temp as the alternate wingman...THE FORWARD WALL: Sam Palumbo, another Brown import, is the middle guard. Last year's incumbent, Bill Forester, moved into departed Roger Zatkoff's right linebacker spot. Tom Bettis is the left linebacker, with Ernie Danjean in a supporting role. Rookie John Symank and two more Cleveland acquisitions, John Petitbon and Billy Kinard, haven't hurt the secondary which still numbers Bobby Dillon and Hank Gremminger.
PACKERS SEEK WIN SPARK AGAINST COLTS SUNDAY
OCT 26 (Baltimore-Green Bay Press-Gazette) - The Packers hope to find a spark in Memorial Stadium here Sunday afternoon. They need a spark in the worst way - somebody or something that will ignite the Packer offense and thus produce a scoring explosion. The Bays need scored. Since whipping the Bears 21-17, they've been on a two-touchdown-a-game diet in losing three straight, 24-14 to Detroit, 45-17 to Baltimore and 24-14 to San Francisco. Green Bay will be looking for a spark - or any kind of fire - in full view of nearly 50,000 fans and the NFL's chief fire extinguishers, the Baltimore Colts. Kickoff is set for 1:06, Green Bay time. The Packers are expected to make an offensive showing Sunday. Coach Liz Blackbourn vowed that after the loss to the 49ers in Milwaukee last Sunday. It will be a tough task due to the Colt's strong defenses - the best in the league on a yardage basis. Blackbourn has made one change in his offensive starters in hopes of getting the aforementioned spark. Paul Hornung, the versatile bonus pick, will start as fullback and Howie Ferguson, if his injured leg isn't kicking up, will be at last half. The starting quarterback will be Bart Starr or Babe Parilli. Hornung could be the sparkler the Packers need. The spunky and happy-go-lucky Notre Damer helped the Bays to a late touchdown against the 49ers last Sunday. A first-rate runner, Hornung could also work some at quarterback. His passing is gradually improving, due to heavy practice. The Packers won't be in good condition Sunday. Ferguson has been bothered by a leg injury and wasn't running well Friday. This could force Blackbourn to start Fred Cone in his place. The Packers' league leading punter, Dick Deschaine, hurt his shoulder in practice Friday when he ran into Hank Gremminger while going out for a pass. The flu situation started to look better Thursday but there was a big and important cog missing from practice Friday - defensive tackle Jerry Helluin, who came down with the disease early Friday. "We'll have to wait until Sunday morning to see how we're feeling," Liz said. If a "somebody" doesn't provide a spark, the Packers would settle for a "something" - like a few recovered fumbles deep in Baltimore territory or some such break. Since the Bear game, the Packers haven't been break blessed! The Packers, out to end a three-game losing streak, expect to go full blast for the entire 60 minutes. They outplayed the Colts in the first showing and held a 10-7 lead at the half. The Pack played dead in the second half and the Colts rolled up 38 points. Baltimore will be coming out of shock, as it were, and they could explode or they could still be whoozy. Detroit left the Colts slightly dizzy last Sunday by overcoming a 27-3 deficit in the last 20 minutes for a 31-27 triumph - the first blot on the Colts' record. The Colts' man of the hour is quarterback John Unitas, who already has hurled the amazing total of 12 touchdown passes in four games - an average of three per start. He has completed 54 passes in 87 attempts for 62.1 percent. John, the onetime Pittsburgh sandlot ace, is human, thought, because he has had seven interceptions. Unitas and his chief Packer tormentors, Lenny Moore, Alan Ameche, Jim Mutscheller and L.G. Dupre and others, will get the usual assist from the Colts' cheer-crazy fans. They yell every time the Colts got up to the line of scrimmage and a two-yard gain brings down the house. The Packers are staying at the Lord Baltimore hotel here. They'll return to Green Bay right after the game in two chartered North Central planes. They are expected to land at Austin Straubel field about 11:30 Sunday night.
COLTS USE 12 MEN! TEAM CAN BE UP EVERY GAME, SANFORD
OCT 26 (Baltimore) - The Colts will stoop to skulduggery for a point or two, it seems. A film check of the Colt-Lion game, made by Detroit, showed that the Colts had 12 men (rushing the kicker) on the field when the Lions kicked the extra point after the TD that cut the Colts' lead to 27-24. After the Lions' last touchdown, the Colts had 13 men against the Lions on the extra point kick. George Wilson, Detroit coach, charged that Baltimore used additional players by design. "It was a put up job," he said. Actually, the Colts' trick is not a new one. "Two years ago, we knew the Bears were using 12 men," Wilson said, adding: "We told the referee and then tackled or held back the Bears before they got to the bench so the referee could make his count."...ATTENTION: Commissioner Bert Bell says he hires former FBI agents to "keep an eye on the gamblers - not the players." The FBI-trained eyes are squinting in dark corners of all National League cities!...Player Leo Sanford of the Chicago Cardinals, after his team belted Washington 44-14: "We've learned a lesson. This being up for one game and down for another is foolishness. We can be up for every game, but the players have to do it themselves." WHAT'S THIS?:The Steelers wore pads Wednesday and held a contact drill. In holding scrimmage in midweek (a practice shunned for nearly 10 years), Coach Buddy Parker said he just wanted to find some good offensive linemen. He made a few switches, working in former Packer John Nisby at offensive guard and moving tackle Willie McClung to defense. Nisby had been playing defensive end and tackle. Parker decided to make changes after his team was walloped by the Giants, 35-0. Parker remarked after the game: "They just beat the daylights out of us. They kept coming and there wasn't a thing we could so about it. We double teamed 'em but even that did not stop 'em. When we put two men on 'em, they just ran over both of 'em. Modzelewski played the best game of his life. And Martinkovic! I knew him at Green Bay, but I never saw him rush the passer before."...Paul Brown, coach of the Cleveland Browns after losing to the Eagles, 17-7: "Everything we did turned to mud." On the way to the Philadelphia airport after the game, the Browns' bus had to make a lengthy detour because of a fire. "It was one of those days," scribe Bob August excused. The Eagles, incidentally, played "control" on the Browns, running 45 times and hurling only 10 passes.
COLTS' FORMULA CLOCKS
OCT 26 (Milwaukee Sentinel) - The Colts proved to the Packers two weeks ago they could win without passing. They trampled the Bears, 45-17, by rolling for 243 yards on the ground. Not only were they winning by running, but they controlled the ball for long periods of time. Green Bay went to the air and gained 186 yards. But 13 incompletions and five killing interceptions stalled progress. In the return match at Baltimore Sunday, Green Bay must hold on to the ball if it expects to stay in the game. And the best way to hold it for a long period of time is to run with it. True, Baltimore's defensive linemen are as tough as they come. They gave up one first down and 47 yards rushing to the Packers two weeks ago. But then, too, the Packers ran with the ball only 23 times. They passed the ball 28 times - and five interceptions! On the other hand, the Colts passed 19 times and ran with the ball on 49 plays. Baltimore has a good passer in Johnny Unitas, but you'll notice the games the Colts have won, they have run many more times than they have passed. The Packers' best running game occurred last Sunday against the 49ers. They picked up 194 yards. Two pass interceptions led to the winning San Francisco points. Coach Liz Blackbourn started Howie Ferguson as a halfback and he picked up 74 yards. Paul Hornung, running from a quarterback post, romped for 62 yards. Fullback Fred Cone added 26. Al Carmichael, one of the best open field runners in the business,
