2—B THE REGISTER-NEWS — MT. VERNON. ILLINOIS SATURDAY, JANUARY 25, 3969 MENDOTA £ PEORIA TAKE FIRST DEFEATS Galesburg Drubs Du Sable Champaign Loses; Proviso, Edw'ville, Thornton Add Wins SPRINGFIELD, HI. (AP) — Two ranked teams, Mendota and East Peoria, gave up their unbeaten status Friday night in Illinois high school basketball Mendota, ranked 11th in The Associated Press poll, suffered its first loss after 17 victories in bowing to Ottawa's strong club 103-93. Ottawa boosted its record to 14-2. East Peoria's 13-game string was snapped by Peoria Manual 68-66 in an overtime contest. Another rated club jolted by defeat was Champaign Central which dropped a Big 12 game with Lincoln 45-40. Champaign, once ranked as No. 1, is No. 8 in the current AP poll. Unbeaten Rockford West maintained its standing by conquering Belvidere 65-50 for 13 consecutive victories. The Rockford team is ranked third. Second-ranked Proviso East, stopped only once this season, notched its 14th triumph in rolling over Oak Park 85-57. Galesburg played host to Du- Sable and handed the Chicago school a 98-72 drubbing. Galesburg is rated fifth in the state and DuSable is among the top ranked teams in Chicago. Two powerful suburban area contenders, Harvey Thornton and Lockport Central registered easy wins. Sixth-ranked Thornton downed Thornridge 79-43 while ninth-ranked Lockport hammered Joliet East 95-58. Edwardsville swept the Litchfield Invitational tournament, defeating Pittsfield 63-54 for its third victory in the meet. Its overall record is 14-1.

Mathis Plans Grid Strategy For Chuvah Sportsman Club To Elect Officers Officers and directors for the /oming year will be elected at the annual meeting of the Mt. Vernon Gun and Sportsman's Club next Monday . The meeting, at 7:30 p.m., will be held in the council room on the second floor of Mt. Vernon city hall. Outdoor sports movies will be shown. All members are invited. Mathis' backers plan to introduce a little pro football technique into the strategy for the big fellow's 12-round match with George Chuvalo, the Canadian heavyweight champ, on the Feb. 3 boxing doubleheader at Madison Square Garden. Jimmy Iselin, son of the president of the New York Jets, and boss of Mathis' camp, expects to act as a spotter in the mezza nine with electronic contact with Mathis* corner. "If the pro coaches can spot sometlung from the upper deck," said Iselin, "I figured I might be able to help from the long range view. After all, the worst place to see a fight is from the corner." Iseiln already has introduced such novelities as films of all training sessions and actual bouts by his fighter. He plays them back in camp, just like the football coaches use the movies of last week's games. "This is a big one for Buster," said Iselin. "If he beats Chuvalo he should be right up there as the top contender. Buster has all the tools. The big problem with him is to get him in the right mental attitude. He realizes this is a most important bout on which his whole future hinges." Mathis, 24, has a 28 -1 record as a pro. He was stopped by Joe Frazier last March in a match recognized in New York State and some others as a world heavyweight championship bout. The World Boxing Association rates him No. 8. Wildcats Ice Cold From Field N'westem Falls After Leading UCLA At Half Lutz Asked To Resign As SIU Baseball Coach Herrin, J. City Bow Reports from Southern Illinois University in Carbondale indicate that Saluki baseball coach Joe Lutz has been asked to resign from, his position by athe- tic director Donald Bdydston. The reason for the request that Lutz resign was given as a "personality conflict" between the coach and the athletic director. Boydston has refused to make any comment on the situation, but Chancellor Robert MacVicar said Friday that Lutz has requested, and will be granted a meeting with athletic department officials to "clarify" . his position as baseball coach. Lutz, a former first baseman for the old St. Louis Browns, has guided the SIU IBASEBALL teams to a 91-42 record in his three years as coach. Lutz," whose contract expires June 30, says that he has no intention of resigning.

NATIONAL MINE SERVICE COMPANY Clarkson Division Mine Road Nashville, Illinois 62263 (618) 327-8276, Ext. 64 CHICAGO (AP) — Top- ranked UCLA still is unbeaten with a 13-0 record, but Coach Johnny Wooden will be glad to get his basketball bruins out of the bruising Midlands after they meet Chicago Loyola tonight. The Uclans needed a super effort by super star Lew Alcindor to overcome brawny Northwestern 81-67, after trailing 45-35 at halftime, in the Chicago Stadium Friday night. In the opener of the doubleheader, Marquette captured its 11th straight triumph and padded its record to 13-2 by wearing down Loyola 61-56. Wooden, who woke up his Bruins with a sharp halftime lecture, got an idea of what it might be like next year without Alcindor, who pumped in 35 points and finally cooled off Northwestern. "At halftime, I told our team I was ashamed of our work on the defensive boards," said Wooden, adding, "These Midwest teams play a strong physical game—there's a lot of bodily contact. Northwestern outmuscled UCLA on rebounds 64-48, and the Big Ten Wildcats might have broken UCLA's 28-game victory skein if they hadn't gone icy cold in shooting with a .289 percentage. The Bruins, on the other hand, shot .456 from the field and got back in the game in the second half when Lynn Shackelford and John Vallely gave Alcindor much-needed scoring support. Wooden said Alcindor played well on offense, but said he was unhappy the way the husky Wildcats blocked out Lew on the defensive boards. Ohio State was the only other team in the Top Twenty to play. The Buckeyes, ranked 12th, whipped Cornell 96-78 as Dave Sorenson scored 33 points and grabbed 17 rebounds. They had to overcome a 15- point deficit in the first half before pulling away to their fifth straight victory for an 11-2 record. Rich Travis, the nation's sixth-ranking scorer, poured in 33 points, leading Oklahoma City past Arkansas 84-73. Charles Wallace had 16 points for the winners in the first half and finished with 18 —after running into foul trouble. Holy Cross overcame Colgate's slowdown tactics for a 49-40 victory. Colgate held Ed Siudut to one point in the first half and led 18-16 at intermission. But Siudut hit all five shots in the second half and sparked the Crusaders int othe lead. In other major games, Wyoming downed Denver 100-92, California beat Los Angeles Loyola 73-68, Stanford romped against San Francisco 81-48 and Oregon whipped Oregon State 66-52. Illinois will try to enhance Big Ten prestige Saturday night in its meeting with Notre Dame in Chicago Stadium while UCLA takes on Loyola. Despite the Stadium program, Big Ten importance will center on the Purdue at Minnesota meeting Saturday. The Boilermakers will take a perfect 2-0 conference record into Minneapolis and need a victory to keep pace with Ohio State. Meanwhile, Michigan will move in on rival Michigan State in a regionally televised matinee. Fire Four Under Par 68's Wilcox, Colbert Lead Rain-Soaked Crosby Franklin And W.

(AP) ~— "Golf," declares Lee Trevino, "is made to be played in the sunshine." Perhaps, but Terry Wilcoxr Jim Colbert and especially Bob Charles think there is something to be said for a little rain once in a while. After the first round of the Bing Crosby Golf Tournament was rained out Thursday, the field sloshed its way around the three ocean-front courses again Friday and mercifully the rain held to a minimum, allowing completion of the 18 holes. Wilcox, a 30-year-old pro out of the Siwanoy Country Club in Bronxville, N..Y, and Colbert, 27, from Kansas City, Kan., finished deadlocked for the lead at 68, four strokes under par. Nei- -ther has ever won a tourna- ! ment. In a three-way tie for third place at 69 were Steve Spray of Cedar Rapids, Iowa, who played the 6,972-yard Spyglass Hill course; veteran Dan Sikes, also on Spyglass, and Australian Bruce Devlin, who played the 6,777-yard Pebble Beach course. Wilcox had come in with a 73 in the washed-out first round over the 6,464-yard Cypress Point course and at the time would have been willing to settle for that. Colbert, playing the Pebble Beach course, was in the last group to finish and, with an eagle on the par-five, 515-y a r d sixth hole, was live-under at the 17th. But he missed a 12-foot putt for a par on that hole by inches and on the 18th, played in near darkness, missed a birdie putt of the same distance after coming in that close with a 75-yard iron shot. But the biggest comeback of the day was scored by Charles, the left-handed Nelf Zealander who was not exactly broken up when his round of 82 Thursday was washed out. He came back with a 70. tied with a group that contains Billy Casper, Miller Barber and Bob Goalby. Back a | stroke is a long list that contains Jack Nicklaus and Al Geiberger, while Trevino shot a 72 and Arnold Palmer a 74. Sesser Falls To Elverado Quintet, 78-63 Sesser's Red Devils lost their I 11th game of the season Friday night, bowing to host Elverado, 78-63.

Vernon will grow and prosper whether you nominate and elect me your councilman or not. But, I would like to be your Councilman and contribute in some small way towards the better future of our community. My wife, Jessie, myself, my four children, Jack, Beverly, Ronnie and David were also born here. Our children belonged to the Central Church of Christ while in Mt. Vernon and my wife and I still belong and attend. My children all graduated from the splendid schools we have in Mt. Vernon. Mt. Vernon is growing and prospering with its three fine banking institutions, two splendid Building & Loan Associations, new shopping center, two outstanding modern hospitals, five magnificent fraternal organizations, intersection of national highways, new motels, Rend Lake College, Rend Lake itself with its fine potential for Industry and Recreation and so many progressive movements which is making our community grow and .prosper. This has not been an accident. A groat number of people had to have dreams and the courage to make them come true. They have given unselfishly and unstintedly of their time and money. Now, I would like to give my time as Councilman ot this community and try to show my appreciation for all the benefits all of my family and myself have enjoyed as a result of the other fellows effort. There is always a difference of opinion and I think even though, opinions differ they are sincerely and honestly given. I am glad that the people of Mt. Vernon, especially the taxpayer, is going for the first time to have an opportunity to vote on a most controversial annexation. I sincerely think when the expense of water, sewerage and City Services are given that the TAXPAYER ought to have the opportunity to VOTE THEIR SENTIMENTS, and then we should abide accordingly. The City Council then can merely in a .perfunctory manner carry out the wishes of the people. I think we could profit more by letting the people vote on many more issues rather than a handful of councihnen always vote for them. I have been an employee of the Freeman Coal Company since its inception in 1952 and this is one of the industries which has paid out millions of dollars in wages. The Inland Steel Coal Mine is a blessing and will do likewise. My family and I were born here and I expect to die here and I would like to do something worthwhile for my community. Will you help me? Just place a X in front of my name lit the City Primary, Feb. 25th, 1969 and I assure you I will do the very best I can for you. GALE MARTIN P.S.1 am not related to either ot the Martins that are now In City Government. v. Your Vote And Support Appreciated \ (Pd. Pol. Adv.) .
