? Frank Howard, Clemson football coach, urging a change of rules to allow one-year scholarships instead of the present four years: "If a high school kid signs a grant-in-aid now, he is in for four years, whether he can play or not. I've got some of them over in Clemson just about eating me out of house and home."
? Bob Hope, stockholder and director of the Cleveland Indians, on obscure baseball decisions: "Baseball could please the fans by letting them in on decisions by umpires on the field. Why, I've been in stadiums around the country and there have been times when even the writers didn't know what had happened. That's not fair to the guy who pays the freight."
?Ex-champion Joe Louis on another ex-champion, Floyd Patterson: "He'd be better off walking the streets and relaxing than sticking himself in a training camp so far ahead of a fight. All you do in those long camps is get nervous."
? Bob Blackman, Dartmouth's football coach: "Today's player is much stronger than the player of years past. The reason is the program of isometric contraction and weight lifting that nearly every college team has adopted within the last five years."
