BY ART DALEY Post-Crescent News Service New York The Packers had enough defense to win most games but they had no offense' in Yankee Stadium Sunday afternoon. x The Giants blitzed and over- ran the Bay scoring machine to make off with a bitterly- contested 20 to 3 victory be- fore the largest crowd ever to see Green Bay play the Gi- ants here, It was Green Bay's third straight loss, setting the rec- ord at 3-3, while the Giants won their fourth in a row for a 5-1 reading at the top of the Eastern division. Doing It in Threes .The Packers, apparently do- Ing things in threes, now hope to start another trio of three straight wins against the Bears in Chicago Sunday. The failure of the Packers' offense was a bitter blow to Coach Vince the former. Giant of fense, mentor, who was home for the first .time. But- it wasn't all New York defense.: Starting quarterback Lamar McHan came up-with a stiff shoulder, the result of an in- jury in the Baltimore game.' and couldn't throw with any degree of accuracy. This ruined the smoothness of the attack the-Packers had been receiving and expecting from McHan. Joe Francis relieved McHan in the.. second quarter .and moved" th'e Packers deep .into Giant territory twice, the first of which was converted into Paul Hornung's 28-yard field goal and a 7-3 score. No Breaks The second time, a few sec- onds before revealed some of the Packers' bad really didn't get any breaks this day. Horn- ung's boot from out hit the right upright and bounced back onto the playing field. Those were the only two tunes the Packers got into Giant territory until the last minute when Jim Temp inter- cepted Don Heinrich's batted- up pass behind the line of scrimmage on the Giants' 20. He ran it to the eight but on the first play Jim Taylor fumbled and Sam Huff re- covered on the five.

Lawrence trimmed Carle- ton. 14-6, and Ripon defeated Knox, 21-7. In other games, St. Olaf downed Monmouth. 27-14, and Cornell continued in second place with a 26-12 triumph over Grinnell. Coe's victory, its seventh in as many starts, guaranteed the Kohawks at least a tie for the title. Beloit counted in the final seconds when Dick Van Scotter ran 38 yards. Watson Tallies Twice Coe's Justin Watson scored twice in the opening period, on a 3-yard rush and on a 68- yard pass play. Bart Thiele gave Coe its other tally when he went over from the two following recovery of a Be- loit fumble.' Dick Celichowski paced Ri- pon with two touchdowns on a 59-yard run and a 1-yard plunge. George Sievers scor- ed on a 34-yard pass from Jim Cowley. Knox got six points on Todd Allen's plunge after a 99-yard march. To Place a Wanl-Ad Dial 3-4411 Monday, Nov. Page B7 Wins Clear Title Despite 7-7 Deadlock BY JIM HARP Post-Crescent Staff Writer Little Chute Marinette Central battled favored St. John to a 7-7 deadlock here Sunday afternoon but the tie was enough to give the Dutch- men the Fox Valley Catholic conference championship. It marks the fourth straight year that St. John has won the title or co-title. A 2-week layoff'left the St. John offensive machine rusty, and the attack sputtered all afternoon getting into gear for only one drive. The Cavaliers were just the opposite as they pounded the AP WIrepnotm Jim Temp (82) of Green Bay intercepts a New York pass on the Giant 23-yard line in their game in Yankee stadium Sunday. Temp got blocking from Dan Currie (58) and carried the ball to the Giants' 7 in the fourth quarter. The Packers fumbled on the next play. The Giants won, 20-3. Jim Brown's 5 Touchdowns Whip Colts 49ers Breeze Over Detroit, 33-7r For Solo Lead By The Associated Press Jimmy Brown exploded, jarring Baltimore's world champion Colts out of the Western conference lead and making Cleveland a contend- er again in the East as the National Football league rac- es hit the halfway mark. The 6-2, 228-pound bulldozer mixed speed with power for five touchdowns Sunday, trig- gering ,the near-record perfor- mance with the longest gain of his pro career a 70-yard rumble-with a pitchout. that got Cleveland rolling on a 38-31 victory over the Colts at Baltimore. The Browns' feared full- back fell one short of tying the NFL record, .but is only the-third player to.score five TDs in a single game. He is the first to do it' in eight years. With Cleveland backing Brown's break through with a defense that was tough when needed, San Francisco's surprising 49ers leap-frogged the Colts into the Western lead with a 33-7 breeze over Detroit. That gave the 49ers, pre-season picks for the sec- ond division, a 5-1 record to Baltimore's 4-2. 3rd Straight Cleveland's third straight success left the Browns in a second place tie with Phila- delphia in the East behind the New York Giants. The Giants (5-1) retained their 1-game edge by smacking Green Bay, 20-3. Philadelphia worked a 30-23 job on Wash- ington. The other games went to the two Chicago teams, with the Cardinals walloping Pitts- burgh, 45-24, and the Bears beating Los Angeles, 26-21.

PAUSTIAN Post-Crescent Sports Editor Lawrence college, after be- ing unable to "keep up with the Joneses" in a pair of lack- luster, 1-yictory seasons, has regained full membership in the society of feared and re- spected Midwest conference football teams. The Vikes last Saturday dispelled all lingering doubts about their right to belong in the upper echelon by whip- ping Carleton, 14-6, at Whit- ing field. Comeback Story first three vic- tories over. Grinnell, Mon- mouth and Beloit were wel- come and important chapters in the 1959 Viking comeback story. But, they were achiev- ed against teams whose size, material and potential were comparable to those of the Vikes. Last Saturday's assignment against Carleton was some- thing else again. Here was a team with a hold-over complement of 17 lettermen from the 1958 MC runnerup squad that had bat- tered Lawrence, 42-8. Here was a team with a tricky, multiple offense a devastating passing attack and perhaps the. best depth in the'confer- enae. And, there was a team on a mission admittedly dedicated to the task of win- ning one for Warren Beson, their head coach, whose trag- ic death came a week ago. But, the Vikes, highly keyed in their own right, simply ran harder, blocked harder and tackled harder than their fav- ored adversaries. Their only weakness, if any, came on pass defense. However, the approximate- ly fans on handv had a hunch it was more the "skill of a tremendous 6-foot-3 hunk of junior end.
