PAGE TWENTY'TWO ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 24,1956 When the Illini meet unricfoatcd Michigan Staff at Champaign Saturday, it will bo only the sminct meeting in history between the two schools. The Spartans won the first, game of the series, 21-7, last year, even though the Illini finished with more lotal- yardage and more first downs. A spotty pass defense on the part of Illinois and the pin-point throwing of All- America quarterback Earl Morrall made the difference. The Illini gained 280 yards to 270 for the Spartans, who went, on to victory in the Hose Bowl, and made 38 first downs to 12 for Michigan State. As the Illini pit-pare to inert tlir Spiirtans again this year, Coach Kay Eliot finds the same trouble haunting his Illini, who have dropped three of their four games so far. Figures released from Champaign reveal that Illinois has made more first downs, more total yardage. of the Year in the Associated Press annual poll. Tebbetls won easily.

Complete Conference In Sight There is strong talk going about that all seven Southwestern Conference teams will compete for the league championship in football next season.

There is no certainty that the proposal will be made, but the rumor is making the rounds. We feel that some such action should be taken, and that it would lead to a healthier conference. Locals On Foreign Soil Three former local athletes are sporting their talents on foreign soil this fall, one in football and the other in baseball. Gordon McConnell of Roxana and Bill Perrin of Wood River are playing football with naval air force teams in Japan. McConnell, who played for one year at Shurtleff College after graduating from high school, is in his second season with the Atsugi Flyers. A guard, he was chosen lineman of the week recently as his team defeated the. Yokahama Clippers, 31-0. A halfback on the Yokahama team is Bill Perrin, a former Oiler backfield star. t Ken Retzer, a former Hartford resident who now makes his home in Wellsville, Mo., is playing winter baseball in Columbia, South America. He lias been in pro ball for three years, this past season jumping from C ball to the Class A Reading club of the Eastern league. He has a number of relatives living in this area. Short Shots Most of the bigger schools have'yet to suing into full scale basketball practice, but the smaller schools are getting ready to open the season next week. \Vorden, for years one of the powers among the smaller schools, opens next. Tuesday against Brussels. The Trojans this year will be coached by Don Doerle, in his first year at Worden. Former coach Ed Biznek has moved to Southwestern at Medora. Dick Schofield, a shortstop in the St. Louis Cardinal organization, has joined the recreation staff of the Illi- nois'Youth Commission. The promising youth has been assigned to the division of community services, where he will assist another maior leaguer. 'Dutch Leonard in conducting baseball clinics around the slate. Jim Epperson, a Choctaw Indian student at the University of Oklahoma, docs a viclorv dance in full tribal regalia whenever the SooiWs score a touchdown. Asked how he felt after the Kansas State gamp, in which Oklahoma -jporrd 10 touchdowns, liis only comment was- "I sure got to dance a lot."

' ' v imU until the next-to-last day of the season and finished in third place, only two games behind Brooklyn and one behind Milwaukee. Birdie had no 20-game winning pitcher in his third season at the Cincinnati helm. His top victory m;m was Brooks Lawrence with 19. With help from Hershell Freeman, who had 14 wins in relief, Tebbetls maneuvered and improvised, getting 91 triumphs from an admittedly weak staff. Despite injuries to Ted Kluszewski and a stibpar midseason show- in!; by Wally Post, the Redlegs held a 1'i-game lend over Milwaukee at the All-Star break (July S). Four days later they fell from first place but remained in contention. It was the first time since 1944 that Cincinnati finished in the first division. In the other seasons under Tebbetts' direction, the Reds wound up in fifth place each time — with a 74-SO record in 1954 and 75-79 in 1955. Tebbetts. 44, is a native of Burlington, Vt. He lives in Nashua N.H. As a catcher, he spent 14 seasons in the American League with Detroit, Boston and Cleveland. Haney took over the Milwaukee reins from Charley Grimm in mid-June. Less than a month later, the Braves were in first place. Only a driving finish by the Dodgers and their own slump in the last three days of the season, prevented them from bringing the pennant to the Wisconsin metropolis. The lack of support for Alston can be traced to the fact that the Dodgers were overwhelming fa- voriteS to finish on top. Walter was the NL's manager-of-the-year in 1955. Redbird-Flyer JV Game Off Alton High's scheduled junior varsity game with East St, Louis this afternoon has been cancelled. and no date for a replay has been set. Alton coaches received a note from the Flyers, saying the team would not be able to play the game at Alton today because of injuries to the players.
