Coach Harold Turner Seeks Seventh Knox Victory Over Monmouth Saturday OAUSBURS, ILLINOIS, THURSDAY, OCTOBER 15, 1953 PAGE 22 Coach Eliot Is Worried About Giel By JIM KLOBUCI1AR MINNEAPOLIS WJ-The wailing wall where Big Ten coaches spill their sorrows is getting cluttered, Minnesota's Paul Giel is tearing up football fields again. At the moment, the gentleman who is more nervous than anybody about Giel's ghostlike dodging is Coach Ray Eliot of Illinois. The charged-up Illini collide with Giel and the Gophers Saturday at Champaign, 111. in one of the features of the day. Giel helped to ruin Illinois' Rose Bowl veterans last year, and he just might do the same to Eliot's speedsters this year. It hasn't been all lilacs and roses this year for Minnesota's all-America tailback. After a creditable job against Southern California in Minnesota's opener he ran into defense-in-depth against Churchill and Lombard Clash This Evening Churchill and Lombard Junior Highs will clash tonight in an intra-city game at Lombard Field. Each team has a perfect, 2-0, record so far this season. Game time is 7:15. Jerry Priddy Happy to Be At Seattle LOS ANGELES Ml — Far from suffering a letdown, veteran baseball player Jerry Priddy is glad on one score about leaving the Major Leagues. "Let's face it," said Jerry at his home here today, "a fellow can't expect to keep galloping around those Big League diamonds forever. "But look at the break I got. Always wanted to get into the Michigan Stale. The swift Spartans managing end some day, and here overbalanced against him, sur- T start with a swell organization rounded him, trapped him and , n the best Minor League." Priddy, recently released by De Dick Bogard Knox College co-captain held him to one of the lowest yardage totals of his career. The fault wasn't Giel's. Minnesota's slow-moving line and interference didn't give the stocky Gopher captain a chance to wheel in the open, where lie's always been his most artful and dangerous. But he got some daylight against Northwestern last week, with these results: Giel scored one touchdown, completed two touchdown, passes of the four he threw and) kept Wildcat tacklers spinning with his off tackle slants and punt runbacks. Coach Wes Fesler, who calls him "an ail-American, all the way," bemoans the absence of a mobile line which could exploit 'Giel's talents to the fullest. Dan Bucceroni in Line for Rocfey; Decisions Slade ST.LOVIS m— Dan Bucceroni, a rough, free-swinging bout with rapid-fire Jimmy Slade behind him, now is looking forward with keener ambition to a possible first- of-the-year fight with heavyweight champion Rocky Marciano. Is the Philadelphia butcher boy, who had to scrap to win an unanimous 10-round decision over Slade Wednesday night at the St. Louis i Arena, ready for Rocky? 1 "Yeah!" says Danny. Marciano, at ringside during the nationally televised bout while waiting to referee a co-feature 10- round match, said he thinks Bucceroni probably will be his next opponent. "I think he's a good puncher," said Marciano, "and it looks like he takes a good wallop, too." But beyond that, the Rock didn't seem overly impressed with Buc ceroni, who now has won 44 of his 47 bouts. His victory over Slade, while unanimous, hinged on a fourth round knockdown that had the 26- year-old New York Negro on the mat for a count of nine. Referee Dick Young and Judge Howard Hess scored it 51-49. Judge Fred Connell gave it to Bucceroni, 54-46. Slade weighed in at 177; Bucceroni, 189.

He succeeds Bill Sweeney. Priddy, now 33, has been in baseball for 18 years as a pro. The 1954 season will mark his debut in the game on the coast. A native of Los Angeles, he was picked out of high school by the late New York Yankee scout, Bill Essex. In 1941, the aggressive Jerry went up to the Yanks as half of a double play combination rated the best ever in the Minor Leagues, His partner was a then young man named Phil Rizzuto, who just happens to still be a star with the World Champion Yankees. Rizzuto replaced the aging Frankie Crosetti but Priddy had no luck unseating the reigning second baseman, Joe (The Flash) Fordon. Priddy went to Washington, to St. Louis, to Detroit. Three times Priddy shared in leading the American League in double plays.. In 1952 he broke a leg but he . —•• r came back and played in 70 games IA #' iVflOlf Priddy hopes to be able to play in at least 70 games with Seattle— at first base. As for managing, he made one promise. There'll be no loafing on any ball club he manages. Hitchcock Romps Over Knoxville Jr. High, 27-7 Hitchcock Junior High turned back Knoxville last night, 27-7, at Lombard Field, scoring a touchdown in each of the four quarters Doug Mills paced the relentless Hitchcock attack, scoring two touchdowns himself and passing to Mickey Foster for another. Bruce Roe also hit pay dirt for the win ners. Joe Markley picked up the only Knoxville touchdown in the fourth period. Scoring seven points in each of the first two stanzas, Hitchcock led, 14-0, at halftime. After they scored again in the third period there was little doubt of the outcome. Next Wednesday night Coach Bucky Swise's Hitchcock gridders will play Lombard at Lombard Field. The game is slated for 7:15.

(#) — A carload of boxing writers cautiously sneaked up on the training home of Britain's Randy Turpin. They wanted to make sure Randy wouldn't head for the hills. He was supposed to be allergic to newspapermen. Out front of Turpin's cottage was a sign: "Randy Turpin's Training Quarters." The other day a British writer, with a crayon made it read "Non-Training" quarters. But that had been erased. Last time Turpin was in America for his second fight with Sugar Ray Robinson—the time he lost the middleweight title to the man he had upset in London—he was a training demon. This was a new Turpin, who boxed Monday, rested Tuesday and Wednesday, boxed Thursday and then wasn't sure when he would work again. In three weeks he worked only 21 rounds. Counting the British workouts he had boxed a total of only 58 rounds. Why this about face? What had happened? Turpin tried to give the answer as he spoke to the writers on the lawn in front of his cottage. M6st seat prices were unchanged I "I just don't feel like a lot of but some were increased from j boxing," he said. "No use doing Entry Fee Upped At Indianapolis INDIANAPOLIS W> — The Indianapolis Motor Speedway today upped the entry fee for the annual 500-mile auto race next May 30 from $250 to §500 and raised some ticket prices. Bob Sparks, a Galesburg sopho more, is the Knox College intramural golf champion as the result of his 2 and 1 victory over Rus Schwem at Bunker Links last weekend. Sparks advanced to the finals by beating > Rusty Neilson, also from Galesburg, 2 and 1 in the semifinals. Schwem defeated defend ing champion Don Mosher of Cambridge 3 and 2. Mosher beat Neilson 8 and 6 to take third place. The big battle of the 1953 grid campaign for Knox and Monmouth Colleges takes place Saturday. The two teams will meet for the 63rd time in 65 years Saturday at 1:30 on the Monmouth Field. Knox's Siwashers are busy this week preparing for an attempt to stop the Scots' perfect season, and in addition to regain the Bronze Turkey, famed symbol of superiority In the series. The Siwashers have a big job ahead of them, though. Monmouth has run over four opponents this year, and Is currently resting, In a tie for the Midwest Conference lead with • a 3-0 record. Knox, on the other hand, has taken only one game while losing three this year. And that Victory was over the two teams' only common opponent, Carleton. Coach Harold Turner 's team played good ball in that game, "just as they have at times in all of their games. The key to the win over Carleton, though, was consistency. In their first three games, the Siwash eleven displayed strength for parts of the contests, but had enough bad moments to result in their defeat. Knox, then, seems to have the potential to upset the favored Monmouth team— that is, if the Si washers can remain consistent. Ilowever, the Siwash gridders will have to play heads-up ball all the way to win. The Scots have the power to score at any time Barry Frakes, standout junior from Viola, has scored 73 points so far this season In leading Monmouth to its four victories. Frakes has more than made up for the loss of Ray Brooks, flashy Scot halfback who graduated last year And Coach "Jelly" Robinson has some other good backs to work with Frakes, in addition to a tough line. Robinson 's chief problem is the lack of experienced reserves, and of course he's making no predictions on the outcome of the game. Turner, just as Robinson, won't predict, but he 's doing plenty of figuring and hoping. Since coming to Knox in 1938 he has guided Siwash teams to six wins, four losses and two ties over Monmouth. And of course during three of the war years the teams didn't meet. The Knox backfield doesn't boast an individual star who can equal Frakes, but it's improving with each game, and could cause plenty of trouble Saturday. Ed Roe |Beavan's passing is getting sharper, and Carl Hoehn and John Clark have shown plenty of running ability. The backs should be at full strength this week, if nothing goes wrong in practice, as both Bill Hall and Stu Simpson have recovered from their injuries to go along with Mac Edwards and Bud Wharton in providing backfield depth. End Jack Fischer, who has a broken finger, is the only man still on the injury list. And it's always best for teams to go into this game at full strength. For a Knox-Monmouth battle is always the most hard-fought of the season. ^ 4 *v Dave Eckloy Knox College co-captain $6.25 to $7.50 and others from $12 to $15.

Turpin said he had never seen Bobo Olson, his opponent Oct. 21 for the world middleweight title at Madison Square Garden. But he insisted he rated him as tough as Robinson. "He's the best over here, isn't he?" he asked. "If I win from him, the Americans surely will have to call me world champion. I'm just as strong just as fast, punch as hard and take just as good a punch' as I did two years ago. I'm only a pound and a half over the weight. I'll make it easy." Fullback Ulm Is Ineligible SAN JOSE, Calif, UP> — Fullback Joe Ulm, the nation's leading college scorer with 11 touchdowns, has been declared ineligible . at San Jose State for the remainder of the football season. Ulm and three other Spartan gridders were barred on a technicality in Pacific Coast Conference rules, by which San Jose State abides. The four players had attended a junior college for one semester and San Jose State for one quarter. PCC rules require a residence requirement of two semesters or three quates.

By unanimous vote of directors Bob Scheffing To Coach Cubs CHICAGO m— The Chicago Cubs have completed their coaching staff for 1954 with the hiring of one of their former catchers, Bob Scheffing. Scheffing, 38, coached for the St. Louis Browns in 1952-53 and backstopped the Cubs from 1941 to 1950. He was traded to Cincinnati in June, 1950 and caught for that team as well as the St. Louis Cardinals in 1951 Scheffing joins Ray Blades; who was retained by the Cubs in their recent coaching shakeup, and Emil (Dutch) Leonard, who retired from pitching after 20 years in the major leagues.

Strange things are going on in the Big Ten football pasture and the goblins are still three weeks away. Oh well, we can't always be wrong. Illinois 21, Minnesota 14—Right away we're in trouble. But J. C. (Jet Comet) Caroline and Mickey Bates have the same speed that enabled Michigan State's Spartans to wear down the Gophers. Minnesota's passing more than the running of Paul Giel and Bob McNamara will bother the Illini. This will be a real hammer-and- tong affair. Notre Dame 28, Pittsburgh 7— The Irish don't forget or forgive a defeat easily. So the Panthers will pay for last year's 22-19 upset of Notre Dame. One-way football has made a terrific team unit of the Irish, whose No. 1 ranking in the Associated Press weekly poll puzzles only Coach Frank Leahy. Purdue 14, Wisconsin 13—Purdue is sending two planes to fly the Badgers to LaFayette. After that. Wisconsin will be rudely grounded by a Boilermaker team that is mad and hungry. If.Max Schmaling is in good health, Alan (The Horse) Ameche is in for a rousing fullback duel. Michigan 20, Northwestern 13— That scare from Iowa was all Michigan needed to get back to its title knitting. Northwestern showed against-Minnesota it is vulnerable to slick ball - carriers and Michigan has 'em. Michigan State 28, Indiana 14— Texas Christian ruined whatever chance Indiana might have had to score a glorious upset. The Spartans no longer will be giddy over their glittering 27-straight victory string and those pony backs will gallop against the Hoosiers. Ohio State 35, Penn 14—It 's a nasty trick Illinois played on Penn. The Quakers may not be as bad as that 40-0 trimming by California might indicate, but the Buckeyes will be swinging from the floor after their 41-20 humiliation by H linois. Iowa 21, Wyoming 7—Wyoming's undefeated string ends abruptly. Iowa has one, of its best lines in years, tempered by excellent performances against Michigan State and Michigan. Marquette 19, Arizona 13—Marquette has lost tough ones to Wisconsin and Indiana. The Hill- toppers like to move that ball and now swing into action out where there 's lots of elbow room. Bill Vukovich Hasn't Retired SACRAMENTO, Calif. UPt— Bill Vukovich, winner of this year's 500 mile Indianapolis auto race, today delayed retirement from racing long enough to enter a 100 mile AAA national championship circuit race here Oct. 25. The 34 year old Fresno pilot is the 17th big car racing driver to enter the $7,500-guaranteed run on the California state fair dirt track. Other entries include Sam Hanks, Burbank, Calif., who leads Abingdon and Aledo Meet in Key Loop Tilt Abingdon and Aledo will clash In a Little Six Conference game at Abingdon Friday night and the outcome of this battle could well prove to hold the key to the loop title. *• Although the Commandos and the Roseville Panthers currently lead the pack with perfect 2-0 records the Green Dragons are in a good position to upset the applecart if they can manufacture a win over Abingdon. ' George Pratt's gridders have a 1-1 conference mark with their one Little Six setback coming at the hands of Roseville, 13 to 0. The Green Dragons shared loop honors with the Commandos last year. Roseville puts its perfect con ference record on the block at Al tona Friday when they take on the ROVA Tigers. ROVA has a 1-1 mark and also has a chance to throw a monkey wrench into things. However, the Tigers have been hit by the injury bug lately and it's doubtful that they can stop the powerful Panther's. The Knoxville Blue Bullets and the Alexis Cardinals, both with 0-2 conference records, will get together in another Little Six conference struggle at Alexis.

Gadberry's victory comes as no great surprise, for his driver, Bill Starr of Colona, ran away with the driver championship. Dick Carroll of Aledo, fourth place in driver points, finished second in the owner's division. Carroll was a consistent high-place finisher and timer throughout the year, and also evaded wrecks most of the time that might sideline his machine for long periods of time. Gadberry's No. 58, with Starr behind the wheel, racked up six feature wins, 16 top time trial marks and set the time trial record of 18.68 seconds. Gadberry and Carroll will pick up two of the 17 trophies to be awarded Sunday at "Trophy Day." Time trials will be at 1 with the first race at 2:30. A special trophy race, involving only a few of the top drivers and machines will be run. Some of the leaders have challenged each other for a race to the finish on a comparatively "open" track. Other awards will be announced at the track during the presentation. Such trophies as sportsmanship and "most popular driver" won't be decided until midway through Sunday's race program which will include the regular lineup of events. Galesburg, Corpus Christi to Face Rugged Foes This Week Both Galesburg High and Corpus Christi Will show their wares this week before a home crowd as the Streaks meet the always tough Moline Maroons Friday night at Lombard Field in their homecoming game while the Friars tangle with the Rushville Rockets Saturday night on the same gridiron. Coach C. C. Van Dyke's charges hope they can snap a long-standing jinx Friday and made their home' coming a happy one. Should the Streaks chalk up a victory over the Maroons it will give them a 3-2 mark for the season. Their first win of the current campaign came via the forfeit Sande Wins Shoemaker Seeks Neiv Mark Today ALBANY, Calif. Wl-Willie Shoemaker has eight chances today to tie or break Tony DeSpirito's 1952 record of riding 390 winning horses in one year. To the disappointment of 7,815 cash customers and scores of newsmen, photographers and television cameramen, Silent Shoes was shut out in his six rides yesterday. He had three seconds (two of them by a nose) and three thirds. Surprisingly, only two of his mounts were made favorites in the pari-mutuels. Shoemaker's best mount, perhaps, was' scratched.

IB—St. Louis and the 17 teams in the Cardina system should improve next season as a result of organization con ferences held in St. Louis last week, Manager Eddie Stanky be lieves. The conferences will mean "a closer knit and improved organiza tion that we hope will develop bet ter clubs," he said yesterday at his Mobile Bay home near here. "My goal is first to develop a pennant wjnner in the Cardinals, and then to see to it that all the St. Louis farm clubs develop into strong contenders in their various NEW YORK UPi — Jockey Earl Sande had his first winner since 1932 today, and he was as happy as when he won three Kentucky Derbies in the days when he was the toast of the American turf. The 54-year-old rider, who began a comeback Oct. 5 because he "ran out of eating money," won the seventh race Wednesday at Jamaica, scoring with the 12-1 shot Miss Weesie over the 8-10 favorite, Will Be There, ridden by Eddie Arcaro. "I wish everyone in the world was as happy as I am right now," said Sande as he brushed away a tear and smiled to the crowd jamming around the winner's circle. Since his comeback, Sande had ridden eight horses before today. He finished third with Honest Bread at Belmont Oct. 5, his first race in 21 years. route when It wan discovered that Peoria Central used an ineligible player in the opener. However, last week they notched a convincing win over East Peoria, 3» to 12, and It's hoped that this WAS the much-needed "shot in the arm" for the GHS gridders. Using their record as a measuring stick, two wins and two losses, the Moline season has been just so- so thus far. However, you can almost discount the Maroons' two losses which were to Rock Island and Joliet, both prep grid juggernauts. Most teams, unfortunate enough to have either of these two teams on the schedule, have run into the same trouble. Two Silver Streak gridders who started out as first string men aro relegated to the side lines because of injury. They are end Dave Johnson and fullback Dave Swanson. According to reports from Rushville, Coach Bob Wlxom's crew will come to Galesburg with a 1-3 record but past experience has taught the Friars never to take the Rockets lightly. Although they had only three lettcrmen back from last year's squad and the 1953 team is made up mostly of freshmen and sophomores, a rugged schedule indicates that these three defeats don't mean too much. One of their setbacks came at the hands of Champaign, 45 to 0, always a power in state footbal). They also lost to Carthage and Hannibal, Mo„ and won over Havana. The Friars lost their first two games, falling victim to Abingdon and Knoxville, but 'bounced back to win over Roosevelt Military Academy of Aledo and Gladstone- Oquawka. Pirates Obtain Long From Stars * HOLLYWOOD UPi — First baseman Dale Long of the Hollywood Baseball Club, voted the most valuable player in the Pacific Coast League last season, has been dealt to the Pittsburgh Pirates in exchange for cash and southpaw pitcher Roger Bowman. Illinois Paces Big Ten Loop in Offensive Total CHICAGO Illinois is off and running for the Big Ten statistical championship. With J. C. Caroline leading the league in rushing with 192 yards in just one conference* game, Illinois has a total offense reconl of 447. Michigan State, however, has an impressive average of 324.5 yards gained in two conference games. It remains to be seen if Illinois, with Caroline and Mickey Bates doing the churning, can maintain such a torrid pace against Minnesota Saturday. Leading Michigan State's offense is LeRoy Bolden with a rushing average in two games of 8 yards per play. Caroline also has an 8-yard average. Ohio State's John Borton is ranked the No. 1 passer. He has 18 completions in 31 tosses in two leagua games for 221 yards. Tops on defense is Michigan State, holding opponents to an average of 139 yards gained per game. READ THE CLASSIFIED ADS No Basketball For Sam White BOSTON UPl — Boston Red Sox catcher Sammy White's hopes of playing for the Boston Celtics in' their home National Basketball Association games appeared extremely slim today. "Sammy hasn't asked me about basketball," said Sox General Manager Joe Cronin. "When he does, I'll speak straight from the shoulder." Celtics President Walter Brown volunteered that he is not interested in White as a part-time player. "I know from past experience that part-time players are of little value to the team," he said.
