2 —B THE REGISTER-NEWS ~ MT. VERNON. ILLINOIS MONDAY, JANUARY 27, 1969 III. St. Over Wesley on Millikin Raps Carroll For 7 th Straight By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS . North Park's Vikings are keeping Millikin from making a complete runaway of the College Conference of Illinois-Wisconsin basketball race. The Vikings picked up two victories last week including a 107-96 decision over Carthage to pull within two games of the league lead held by undefeated Millikin. Millikin, aiming for a second straight championship, played only one conference game last week and came up with a convincing 98-78 triumph over Carroll Saturday night. The loss was one of three suffered during the week by the Pioneers who were all but eliminated from championship consideration. Millikin reaches the halfway mark in the race with a trip to North Central Wednesday, and the Big Blue then go back to Decatur to face Carthage Saturday night. Wheaton, sitting idle with its 3-3 record, returns to the race with a pair of important games. The Crusaders are at August- ana Friday night and then go home to take on Elmhurst Saturday night. Luckless Elmhurst dropped an 87-85 decision at Augustana Friday night as the Bluejays' record slumped to 1-6. However, the Bluejays should not be taken lightly. They have lost their last four conference games by a total of eight points. North Park has only one league engagement this week and that comes Saturday night at Carroll. In other games this week, Carroll is at North Central Friday and North Central goes to Augustana Saturday night. There will be some action in the Interstate Intercollegiate Athletic Conference this week with all four teams in action Saturday night. Eastern Illinois puts its 2-0 record at stake against invading Illinois State which is currently ranked 18th in The Associated Press Poll and Central Michigan plays at Western Illinois. Illinois State downed Illinois Wesleyan Saturday 86-79 while Eastern took a 79-65 beating at the hands of Kentucky State. COIW STANDINGS W. L. Pts.

Tuesday night Ohio State takes on charging Illinois and on Saturday the Buckeyes invade Lafayette, Ind., to take on Purdue's rugged Boilmakers While the Buckeyes picked up a pair of nonconference triumphs last week in beating Georgia Tech 73-66 and Cornell 9678, Purdue climbed into a first- place tie with Ohio State with a crushing 102-79 victory at Minnesota Saturday. Rick Mount netted 34 points to help the Boilermakers match Ohio State's record of three conference triumphs including two on the road. Illinois, ranked 8th nationally, stunned a Chicago Stadium audience of 18,667 by completely dominating Notre Dame 91-57 before UCLA and Lew Alcindor toyed with Loyola 84-65. Meanwhile, Michigan's Wolverines helped deflate the home court superiority exaggeration by dumping rival Michigan State 75-70. The home teams in Big Ten games have only a 138 edge so far in the season. Illinois, which checked Notre Dame's winning streak at seven games, has lost only one game all season and that was at Purdue. Following the loss, Coach Harv Schmidt said "We weren't prepared." This time the Mini will be prepared but it might not do them any good since Ohio State is being touted in some quarters as a super team. While Ohio State is battling Illinois and Purdue, Iowa, the only other team with less than three Big Ten losses, will be pulling for Illinois to defeat Ohio State and then have Ohio State defeat Purdue. Under such results, all four teams would be tied for first place come Saturday night providing Illinois can defeat Wisconsin at Champaign Saturday. In the only game tonight, DePaul visits Indiana. Iowa, idle all last week, returns to action Saturday night to participate in another Chicago Stadium doubleheader. The Hawkeyes will battle fourth- ranked Davidson while Loyola takes on Michigan. Two other conference games are scheduled Saturday with Michigan State at Indiana and Northwestern at Minnesota. • SCORES • East Army 64, Penn State 54 Princeton 74, Pennsylvania 62 Villanova 81, De Paul 57 St. John's, N.Y. 71, St. Francis, N.Y. 55 Rutgers 98, Lafayette 56 Iona 79, Wagner 73 Vermont 96, St. Peter's, N.J. 65 LaSalle 101, Temple 85 Holy Cross 88, Syracuse 80 Dartmouth 91, Williams 54 Manhattan 93, Connecticut 78 Boston U. 109, Trinity, Conn. 92 Boston Coll. 107, Canisius 73 Colgate 60, Hobart 52 Mass. 75, Providence 62 St. Francis, Pa. 100, E.

HEIDENREICH FOR MAYOR Entrust your city to a successful businessman who has been trained all his life to make decisions, to operate on a budget, and get the most out of each dollar spent. During his 28 years in Mount Vernon, he spent 24 years as store manager for Sears Roebuck & Co. He has served two terms as President of the King City Retailers and has served as the vice-president of the Chamber of Commerce. He has been the President of the Uons Club, the Exhalted Ruler of the Elks Lodge and the Grand Knight of the Kniahts of Columbus. He has also served as president of the high school and junior college board of education. He is president of the United Cerebral Palsy of South Central Illinois and has been for the past eight years.

If elected as your Mayor he promises you an impartial administration directed to all the people of Mount Vernon. As a retired person he will have the time to devote to the office to make Mount Vernon the most progressive town in the State of Illinois. George R. Heidenreich For Mayor (Pd. Pol. Adv.) By TOM SALADINO Bob Seagren celebrated the anniversary of his world pole vault mark Saturday by shattering it—while a pair of awesome Aussies did some record-breaking of their own as the indoor track season bloomed on six fronts last weekend. Seagren, the U.S. Olympic champion, soared to his indoor mark of 17-5% in the Albuquerque Invitational and Australian Ralph Doubell, another Olympic Gold Medal winner, broke the 880-yard standard in the same meet. The other Aussie, Ron Clarke, smashed the three-mile run record at the Athens Invitational in Oakland Friday night. And at Houston's Astrodome, six world's best marks were eclipsed at the Federation National Championships. The Astrodome records, run on a five laps to the mile track, however, are not recognized as records by the Amateur Athletic Union. The AAU requires that a track be at least eight laps around. The Federation marks were set by Lenox Miller, Southern Cal, 9.4 in the 100-yard dash; Olympic Gold medalist Willie Davenport in the 120-hurdles, 13.5; Hardee McAlhaney, the 600 in 1:08.1; Texas University in the mile-relay at 3:08.4; and Kansas State in the two-mile relay, 7:23.7, and medley relay, 3:17.9. Seagren of Southern California, broke his own mark of 174-, which he set at the Wanamaker-Millrose Games in New York exactly one year ago, Jan. 25, 1968. "It was a matter of pride," Seagren said Saturday. He was upset at himself for performing poorly in the Astrodome the night before where he had finished third at 16 feet behind UCLA's Dick Railback. Doubell, another Gold Medal winner at the Mexico City Olympics, lowered the 880 time to 1:47.9, breaking Dave Patrick's 1:48.9. Doubell was pushed by Tom Von Ruden, who finished in 1:50.4, but was on the Austrian's heels most of the way. The amazing 31-year-old Clarke, who predicted before the Athens meet, "I'll win, I expect to get the record," did just that, winning in 13:12.6, cracking Tracy Smith's standard of 13:15.2, set last year. Smith finished fourth in 13:52.8. Rated Teams 11-0 Last Week UCLA Slaps Cats, Chicago Loyola In Top Ten' Weekend By MIKE RECHT Associated Press Sports Writer The Top Ten teams in college bsaketball put up a perfect defense of the high ground last week, but several of them might find it more difficult protecting themselves this week. Led by undisputed king-of- the-hill UCLA and its victories over Northwestern and Chicago Loyola, the Top Ten rolled up an 11-0 record last week, making any rating changes doubtful in the weekly Associated Press poll. But seyenth-ranked New Mexico State, carrying a 16-0 mark after routing Tennessee Tech at home, will be the first to say it won't be so easy to match perfection in the next six days. The Aggies must put their high position and flawless record on the line twice against cross-state rival New Mexico 11-6, first at home Wednesday and then at New Mexico Saturday. Illinois, No. 8, after easily beating back 15th-ranked Notre Dame, could have as much difficulty standing tall with games at 12th-ranked Big Ten rival Ohio State, 11-2, Tuesday and at home against Wisconsin Saturday. Duquesne, which protected its No. 10 ranking with a come- from-behind triumph over tough St. Bonaventure 84-69 Sunday, must face Spencer Haywood and Detroit at home Thursday. Davidson, No. 4, after playing at George Washington Tuesday, must take on Iowa at Chicago Stadium Saturday; Kentucky, No. 5, expects easy pickings at Alabama tonight, but then clashes at home Saturday against Vanderbilt, and St. John's, No. 6, hosts tough Temple Saturday. Only the top three teams of UCLA, North Carolina and Santa Clara and ninth-ranked LaSalle figure to be easy winners. The Bruins entertain California and Stanford during the weekend, the Tar Heels are at The Citadel and Clemson Tuesday and Saturday and Santa Clara travels to Hayward State Friday. LaSalle is at St. Francis, Pa., Tuesday before hosting Loyola, La., Saturday.

Now, opponents of the Los Angeles Lakers have overcome 23- point performances by Chamberlain, but not usually when they come in one quarter. Chamberlain's 23 came in the fourth quarter Sunday and they gave him a game-total of 60 as the Lakers beat the Cincinnati Royals 126-113 to increase their first-place lead by 1% games over the Atlanta Hawks in the National Basketball Association's Western Division.

(AP) — An event that for a time had seemed as unlikely as the reappearance of the sun over the state of California takes place today: the fourth and final round of the 1969 Bing Crosby National Pro-Am Golf Tournament. The rains and high winds that have put much of the state under water for the last week and a half were for the most part absent Sunday as steady Dale Douglass took a precarious one- stroke lead into today's final. Douglass shot a two-under-par 70 over the rugged Pebble Beach course—scene of all the action today as the golfers making the cut converge from two other courses—to go six-under- par for the rain-delayed tournament with a 210 total score. Following Douglass, a 32- year-old pro from Denver, were one golfer for every score up to par: Howie Johnson at 211, George Archer at 212, John Lotz at 213, Jerry McGee at 214 and Grier Jones at 215. Douglass, "hitting the ball better than I ever have," shot par of 16 holes on the 6,777-yard Pebble Beach course and birdied the other two. It was a far cry from the final day of the 1963 Crosby when he took 19 strokes to finish the 10th hole.

The Detroit Tigers waited 23 years for a pennant and World Series championship and now the good things won't stop coming. Latest honor bestowed on the world champions came Sunday when Detroit was named The Associated Press 1968 Team of the Year. Although everyone associated with the team probably had little doubt which was the Team of the Year, sports writers and broadcasters made it official by giving Detroit 553 points, including 10 first-place votes in nationwide, year-end balloting. "It is quite an honor to be picked the best team," said Manager Mayo Smith without any visible surprise. "But the players don't think about such honors when they're playing." Before 1968 the last time Detroit won an American League pennant was in 1945. but it was not the season's performance that influenced the voters for the year's No. 1 team, Smith said. "I think probably the reason we were picked was because of coming back after being down 3-1 in the World Series," he said, "I'm sure that's what influenced the voting." There were several heroes in that Series, but the biggest was Mickey Lolich, who won three games including the finale against St. Louis ace Bob Gibson after the Tiger southpaw had only two days rest. Another was 31-game winner Denny McLain, who won the sixth game despite receiving treatment for a sore arm before the game. Veteran right fielder Al Kaline was another star, batting .379 for the Series. McLain was named the league's Most Valuable Player and received the Cy Young Award as its best pitcher.
