SALEM INVITATIONAL MEET OPENS TONIGHT Effingham Defending Champion Centralia, CDale Favorites In 18th Annual Tournament Effingham will toe out for a third straight Salem Invitational Tournament title as play opens tonight, but the Flaming Hearts don't have the team of a year ago and will probably find winning the championship a difficult chore. Opening games of the 18th annual meet finds Centralia going against Olney at 7 p.m. tonight, followed by the Pinckneyville — Salem battle. The winner of these two games will meet in the first semi- final match Friday. v Carbondale takes on Greenville in the first game Thursday. Effingham meets DuQuoin in the second match of the evening. First round losers will lock up in the consolation bracket games Saturday beginning at 12:30 p.m. A three-game Saturday night session will start with the third place game at 6 p.m. followed by the Saturday afternoon winners in a battle for the consolation title. The championship game is scheduled for 9 p.m. Saturday. Effingham, the No. l rated team throughout most of the 1967-68 season, drop­ ped Mt. Vernon last year by an 81-68 count to capture the title. Powerful Centralia and Carbondale, ranked No. 1 and 2 in the meet are expected to vie for the championship this year. The Orphans, with a 11-3 record, topped Carbondale 81-76 two weeks ago. on the Centralia floor. , Carbondale has since regained the services of injured Bob Pankey and may be able to trip up the Marion county club on the neutral floor. The Terriqrs, 9-2, will be making their second appearance after dropping Centralia 71-64 to take third place in the meet last year. Pinckneyville, 8-5 is considered a dark-horse by many observers. The Pincks have won six Salem titles in the past under the guidance of Coach Sammy Ulrich, the Panthers are currently in second place in the Southwest Egyptian Conference. Tickets sales are reportedly not as high as last year and fans desiring to attend the tourney should "have . little trouble in gaining admission.

You may remember what happened to Sonny and the Colts-. Because of the thunder in De Paula's right fist, many greet the reported 5-1 odds against him as too high. Despite the experience of Foster, making the first defense of his world light heavyweight title, De Paula -has a solid army of backers who will swarm over the bridges and through the tunnels to swell the Madison Square Garden box office. The Jersey invasion is expected to bring the attendance to about 15,000 and the gate to $150,000 for the 9:30 p.m., EST, 15-round match. It will be carried on a special television hookup, Sports Network, Inc., to a limited number of cities but New York and the surrounding area will be blacked out. Foster will have a big physical edge, towering over his squat opponent by seven inches and enjoying a nine-inch advantage in reach, a Mutt and Jeff match. The 6-foot-3y a -inch champ will be punching down at his 5-8%-opponent, just as he was when he won the crown by knocking out Dick Tiger with a left hook last May 24. "I'll do it in three rounds," said Foster, who needed only four to flatten Tiger for the first time in his career. "Somebody is going to' go and I think it will be him," said De Paula, who fought the walkout preliminary in the Garden the night Foster beat Tiger. If Foster, 30, gets over this hurdle he may choose to' mingle with the heavyweights in the future. He has no trouble "making the 175-pound weight limit but knows the big money is with the big boys. However, his two knockout defeats have come when he ventured among the heavies for matches with Doug Jones and Zora Folley. Sinatra Hoping To Buy into Miami Dolphins MIAMI (AP) — Frank Sinatra and a Miami businessman are waiting in the wings in case a bitter backstage feud disolves the ownership of the Miami Dolphins, the Miami Herald reported in Wednesday editions. The Herald 1 reported Sinatra and Salvatore A. "Sam" Rizzo are hoping to buy into the American Football League Dolphins if the present partnership between General Manager Joseph Robbie and majority stockholder Willard "Bud" Keland fails. 150 To Compete On Weekend List Schedule For All Bowlers In Mt Vernon Women's City Tourney A total of 75 doubles pairs, with l. r -0 singles and .all-events entries will see action this .Saturday and Sunday in the annual Mt.

Vernon plays top- rated Quincy here Friday night it will be the first time — to our knowledge — that the teams have met in regular season action. . . However, we well recall the last two Mt. Vernon - Quincy battles. . . Both were games to remember . . . Most recent meeting was in tlio second round of the Centralia Holiday Tourney of 1964. Quincy was top- rated in the 16-tcam Centralia field, but coach Gene Haile's Rams pulled the big upset of the tourney. . . Sparked by big Gary Jones (the Jolly Orange Giant), and guards Terry Gamber and Gary Large, Mt. Vernon spilled the high-flying Blue Devils 67-62. It was a cliff-hanger all the way. . . The lead changed hands 16 times with victory coming to the Vernois in the final minute. . , -o- -o- -o- The Ram-Quincy game before that one is even easier to remember. . . It was March, 1952 in the semifinals of the state tourney in Huff Gymnasium. . Coach Stan Changnon's Rams went to Champaign with a 29-2 record, rated No. 3 team in Illinois. . . Mt. Vernon got by big Harv Schmidt and Kankakee 57-56 in overtime, then beat Pinckneyville 55-51 to gain the semifinals against Quincy. . . Quincy, with the tremendous Bruce Brothers, was rated No. 2 one step ahead of Mt. Vernon in the prop poll. . . Hebron's district - winning Green Giants were listed No. 1. . . Quincy had a 45-35 lead on the Rams in the final quarter of that raging semifinal — and the Blue Devils attempted _ to sit on the margin. . . But Mt. Vernon, featuring the Stokes brothers, Mose and Jim, Joe Johnson, Mak Mannen and others, made a tremendous charge down the stretch and actually took the lead twice before Quincy survived 54-51. The Rams missed that state crown by a whisker and, we always felt, they took so much out of Quincy in the semifinal that the Blue Devils were unable to bounce back against Hebron in the title clash, •o- -o- -o- Mt. Vernon has eveiything to gain and much less to lose when they play the No. 1 Blue Devils here Friday. . . And if this game comes anywhere near the Ram- Blue Devil pattern, Quincy will be fortunate to leave town with its No 1 rating intact. . . -o- -o- -o- Sports Shorts Former Ram star Danny (Hoobie) Hester has quit Louisiana State University. . .

") -o- -o- -o- Distanee is a formidable handicap for Quincy in its athletic schedules. . . Sitting by itself up in Adams county, Quincy must travel for hours to meet other schools of noteworthy size and put together a representative schedule. . . For instance, Blue Devil players will climb on their bus at 10:30 a.m. Friday to travel to Mt. Vernon. . . After the game here, they bus back to Quincy for a home contest against Granite City on Saturday night. . .

Oakland Seo/s May Be S*ent To Buffalo MONTREAL (AP) — The fate of the Oakland Seals, still drawing slim crowds despite a second-place team, is expected to be settled by Feb. 18, according to Clarence Campbeil, president of the National Hockey League. The NHL Board of Governors is scheduled to meet again in New York on that date and 1 Campbell said Tuesday he "would be surprised if the situation is not cleared up by that time." The governors met before Tuesday's All-Star Game and decided to table the proposed transfer of the Seals to Buffalo, N.Y., with a final decision due by Feb. 18. The city of Vancouver, B.C., also is seeking the Seals, but the Vancouver interests failed to file an application for transfer in time for the item to be placed on Tuesday's agenda.
