San Mateo Times (Newspaper) - November 5, 1957, San Mateo, California SPORTS PARADE Mora! of Sport in Rome's Olympic Setting .By OSCAR FRALEY But then you look more closely at the bland face of the .rnoun- ROME such as Joe DiMaggio and Yogi Berra, an insisted vehemently today, are better known abroad and Actually arc finer good-will ambassadors than the- big wheels in rthe state department. You hear this same approach to the subject in baseball-happy And certainly, here in the jpaRhetti and vino capital of the world, you'd have to give an edge to such fine loca! handles as Di- and Berra. Vet. when you inspect the scenic Tiber valley where the O'ympic games are to be held in 19SO, you can't be blamed for scanning such statements with a slightly suspicious eye. This is not designed to provoke a debate as to whether the international games do anything to foster international good will. 'Nor is it meant to knock the slightly soggy slogan anent the friend- jhips formed on the field of friendly strife. But there must be moral of sorts somewhere in Rome's Olympic setting. Rising tall and green beyond the playing fields is a mountain i.'tfhich forms a breath-taking backdrop. It slopes upward with a soft gentleness, undulating and reaching toward the sky, and atop its lummit stands a commanding gold statue of Christ. It is a setting which, at first glance, gives the impression of a deep serenity. tain and only then do you realize the incongruous nature of some of the silent gallery which will be staring down' at -the games de- signed to promote a greater spirit of friendship "and understanding. On one knoll there is a building which'' houses war orphans. Topping one rising slope, white crosses .gleam in the sun light, shimmering symbols in a cemetery dedicated to a nation's war dead. Jutting out on one rise is a blank-faced building, its facade as. vacant as the kinds of those incarcerated on the inside. And on another of those commanding hills is a stately mansion which, though now a restaurant, still stands as .a testimonial to the fact that it once housed a dictators' mistress. Looking at these sores under the sad eyes of the statue at the crest, you remember that the Olympics sprang originally from a war. For they were designed by'the ancient Greeks in-tribute to" Pheidip- pides, who carried the news of Greek victory over the Persians.in the buttle of marathon all the way to dropped dead after the telling. So they started with a broken heart, fell apart as other wars intervened and finally were resumed again at Athens in 189fi. According to plan, they are held every four years, yet still other wars three times have halted them in the years since their modern inception. Rome is planning busily to make them a smashing success three years hence. Looking up at the mountain, you hope they do some good, and that the athletes will go home' and really spread the message printed so plainly on the backdrop. Times Sports Mateo Tuesday, Nov.

Los Angeles Rams coach, says his offensive line a broke down altogether against the jiQhicago Bears, but he still thinks dub lias a chance in the Na- "'tfonal Football League race. Gillman told the Football Writ- ers Assn. yesterday: "Our offense was great against Detroit, but Sunday we couldn't break our way out of a paper bag." Asked why Billy. Wade is trapped more than Norman Van "Brocklin when he goes back to -pass. said: "Van is a master at slipping from tacklers. He has to be. 'He's not a good runner." i'..Don Liebendorfer, Stanford pub- 'licist, told the writers the Indians a good football team and Will make it interesting for South- ern California here' Saturday. Of quarterback Jack Douglas, sai.d: "At times this year he de- served to bo ranked with the best. We have a one-two punch .in the backfield in Chuck Shea and Al Harrington." Eight Points Liebendorfer pointed out that Stanford has lost five of its last 31 games by a total of only eight points. Coach Red UCL'A says he considers. Washington State's Bob Newman one of the nation's best collegiate passers. UCLA meets the Cougars Satur- day in Spokane. Sanders said the Cougar receivers also are good and that the Bruins face a really dangerous club that has the knack of pulling games out of the fire in the last period. .Don Clark, Southern California coach, wasn't present at the luncheon, as he was busy map- ping f defense for the Trojans the' Stanford air game. Backfield coach Al Davis said the Trojans were quite fortunate in beating Washington last week and that he hopes they play as well Saturday. S. S. F. Water Polo Team Beats S. M.

Baseball Veteran Gets Millers Job MINNEAPOLIS Bos< ton Red Sox Monday night ap- pointed' a 40-year baseball veteran to the' post of Minneapolis Miller general manager. Appointment of .Tommy Thomas. 58, was announced by Red Sox Farm Director John Murphy. Thomas is no stranger to the general manager- ranks, havinj served as both field and general manager of the Baltimore Orioles of the International League, from 1939 to 1949. Next to Michigan, Irish Top Foe on MSU Schedule EAST LANSING, Mich. UB-No- tre Dame, the school that gave Michigan State its first important assist into big money football, can only expect a hard time as thanks on Saturday. The Irish appearance here, a Midwestern classic in recent years, will be the first sellout in the new capacity Spartan stadium. In the last few the Spar- tans have beaten the 'ears .off the old buddies who .gave them the initial lift into national promi- nence. Michigan State is a slight favorite. The. MSU-Irish football series dates back to 1897 but was dis- continued after Notre Dame won a 48-0 shutout in 1941. Michigan State decided to gam- ble on getting into big league foot- ball when enrollment started 'boommg in the. years following World War II. A solid; gate attrac- tion was needed to justify enlarg- ing the stadium capacity from to Notre Dame signed for a long- time series, starting .in 1948 and the rise of the Spartans dates from that agreement. State later was accepted into the Western Conference, had several unbeaten seasons, topped the na- tional ratings and has continued enlarging its stadium. The Irish won the first two games of the modern series, in 1948 and 1949. But State has taken five but of the last six, including a 35-0 shutout in 1951 and. a 47-14 walloping last year.

Mr. Swing Toward Possession Football Continues NEW YORK year toward possession football is continuing, a check by the Na- tional Collegiate Athletic Assn. service bureau showed today. Scoring, -grounc gaining and forward passing are down to the smallest figures in years while the high percentage of running plays reached last has been main- tained. More field goals than usual are being attempted and made. The service bureau, concerned primarily with statistics, doesn't try to explain the figures. But most coaches point to the popu- of the T formation and swing last i various ''variations which are bet- tcr suited to running than passing. Running was the principal ground-gainer under the old single wing style, though a tailback who could pass was considered very useful as a threat or when the runners couldn't move'. NCAA, records for major col-, leges show that the scoring aver- age, is under 32 game, for .both the-first time sines 1943. During the first half of the 1957 season, major teams averaged only 31.5 points a game; as compared to a 33.3 point aver- age during 1956. An interesting sidelight in this respect is that the Far West, which led all sections in scoring last year with an average ot nearly 40 points per game, is at the bottom of the list now at 28.3 points. Tlie Big Ten. area, next- to-last in .1936, is on top with a 3G point average. The drop'-'ia yardage gained per game isnt- so' pronounced but the total figures are yards for .two teams, on the average as compared to last season's 558 yards. Pass. attempts have' dropped below 28 per game for'the third time in average 20 years, although .the down 59 28.2 last year. The first half 'figure is Only in 1939 and. 1952 was the average for a season less than 28. Over a period of 'many years, the total number of running plays per game averaged about 90. Last 'season the average increased to 'S8.2 .and that figure :has' been maintained so far this year. In 1952 there was a-sudden up: surge in field goals and major col- lege teams booted 82. The aver- age has been less than 60 for 12 years; So far this year 32 have been made. zoolyi, Miracle Girl, AJfljig, Knight, Nor- cotilvn. Direct Current.

Fair-weather spectators are un- happy because Oklahoma isn't piling up 5 and 6 touchdown-mar- gins. The situation was brought into focus Saturday as the a 5-touchdown favorite, had a hard time beating weak. Kansas State 13-0. A 14-13 victory over Colorado in another .Big Eight Conference game didn't set well with some. It's a perfect situation for Soon- er Coach Bud Wilkinson, who has a reputation for.being pessimistic about each 'upcoming game, to say "I told you so." Wilkinson today just pointed out what he had said all season, that he'didn't have a superman team and bis squad is playing at the peak of its capabilities in .each game. "I feel it's not in the' cards for us to keep said 'the graying Wilkinson, 4r, in forecast- ing Oklahoma's string would come to an end against Missouri at Co- lumbia Saturday. "We'll be trying as hard as we can to win. But we have just.an ordinary squad on offense." He's happy with the Oklahoma which has stopped, all touchdown bids on the ground. "I think we have improved and I'm very well pleased with the way played. But we're, go- ing to have to move the consistently and improve our kicking." Then Wilkinson added: "Even if we lose the next three out of our four games the rest of this season, I'd say we-had done real well."
