8 - Friday, July 19, 1963 Redlands Daily Facts Additional Sports S.C. to get lion's shore of Shrine game fo/enf For the second year in succession, the University of Southern California seems destined to inherit the lion's share of talent from the Shrine North-South Football Classic, which will be held Thursday evening, Aug. 1, in the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum. The Trojans, defending national collegiate champions, plucked off eight top prospects from last year's combined North and South teams. This summer, six players have positively named USC as their college choice and four oth ers are either undecided or plan to enroll at Troy via junior college. Utah State and Stanford could land as many players as USC. for that matter. Four North grid- ders have expressed a definite preference for Utah State and three more are not certain; six prize prospects, three each from North and South, have declared Stanford as their choice. California is reasonably sure of bagging three of this year's Shrine players and two more are still weighing final decisions. UCLA has four "certain" enroUees, two each from North and South, and Colorado has three pretty well sewed up and a fourth who is un­ co nmiitted. Southern California "Player of the Year" Steve Grady, halfbaclt from Loyola (L.A.) High; North- em California "Lineman of the Year" Bud Baccitich, guard from St. Ignatius (S.F.); Harry Wells, two-time All-City tackle from Manual Arts (L.A.); and Ty Sal- ness, All-Southern California end from Anaheim, are USC's prize nuggets. In addition, the Trojans will land Bill Homik, All-Southern California tackle from San Diego, and Ray Cahill, All-City end-halfback from JIanual Arts (L.A.). UCLA is getting all linemen- center Eric Taylor, Santa Cruz, and guard Pete Campbell, Bishop Armstrong of Sacramento, from the North; end Gary Bickers, Hawthorne, and guard Rich Deakers, Loyola (L.A.l, South. Stanford is expected to wind up with South guard Larry Volmert, Bishop Amat (La Puentel; halfback Bob Blunt, Escondido; and fullback Bill Ostrander, San Gabriel, plus North end Al Wilburn, Madera; guard John Longinotti, Willow Glen (San Jose); and fullback Mike Hibler, St. Francis (Mountain View). Cal's "sure" recruits are South tackle Bob Gilleran, Glendale, and center Tom Dodson, Pacific (San Bernardino), and North quarterback Del Henry, Merced. Northern California "Back of the Year" Terry McCarthy of Hayward has chosen the University of Colorado. IN HOLLYWOOD Tom Jones: Mole forever Amber OUR ANCESTORS byQuincy By Erskine Johnson Owens, family remain in serious condition DENVER (UPI) - Baltimore Colt flankerback H. C. Owens, his wife, Tina, and their 1-month-old son, Darren, remained in serious condition at two Denver hospitals early today, suffering from injuries received in a car wreck Wednesday night. Owens' daughter, Pamela, 4, died in the crash. A doctor at Presbyterian Hospital said "I can assure you that Owens will not be in Baltimore Sunday" to begin training with the National Football League Colts. Owens and his wife were reported seriously injured about the head. Owens also suffered a fractured rib and a partially collapsed lung. His wife had a fractured vertabrae in her neck. The son, taken to Children's Hospital, was in critical condition with head injuries. The family makes its home at Belmont, Calif. The three were hospitalized at Vuma, Colo., following the accident Wednesday, and brought to Denver Thursday. Doctors said it "is impossible to estimate" when Owens will be released from the hospital. They said he and his wife, however, were "coming along well." The Colorado State Patrol said the car, driven by the football player, went off the left side of U.S. 36, ran over a concrete cul vert and overturned. Owens played for the San Fran Cisco Forty Niners before joining the Colts. Bracket t quits UCLA post LOS ANGELES (UPI) -Assistant football coach Deke Brackett, a 13-year veteran at UCLA, has resigned his post and will enter private business. J.D. Morgan, Bruin athletic director, in making the announcement Thursday said Brackett wDl be replaced by Dick Mansperger. currently on the staff-of Arizona State University. Mansperger, 30, went to ASU after serving on the West Texas staff. Before that, he played tackle for the Sun Devils after transferring from Palo Verde ju nior college in Blythe. LONDON — <NEA> - . . . "under the distinguished patronage and in the presence of HRH Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh." "Royal World Chairity Pre miere," added the tickets to the movie for which 1,000 Londoners paid S15 each. Well, now, let me tell you I had a jolly time of it, although I'm wondering if HRH knew exactly what his "presence" was getting into. The British-made film "Tom Jones" makes it plain that British morals have changed little in 100 years. As in the 18th century rascal with the ladies, "Tom" is as busy romancing as are today's Christine Keeler & Friends of Pro- fumo fame. As a parallel to today's headlines, the film also chuckles about scandal and gossip as always being "the sugar in London's tea." The royal box was in the balcony, directly above my main floor seat. I saw HRH arrive in the lobby, on closed circut television, but from then on his "presence" was indicated only by all the royal pomp the United Artists publicity men could BRITAIN, SPAIN SPLIT BRISTOL, England (UPD- Britain and Spain split opening singles matches Thursday in their European Zone Davis Cup tennis semiCnaL Mike Sangster defeated Jose Luis Arilla, 6-2, 6-4, 6-4, to give Britain the first match, "but -"Manuel Santana deadlocked the series for Spain as he beat Bobby Wilson, 6-4, 6-4, 6-8, 2-6, 7 5. Too many toasts for Shelley NEW YORK (UPI) — Actress Shelley Wmters just isn't used to so "much caviar, smoked salmon, sturgeon, chicken kiev, vodka and wme." That, she explained Thursday, was why she had to have her stomach pumped out in Moscow. "The Russians drank toasts endlessly. They even drink a toast when you leave a room," she said on her return to the United States. "I wanted to be sociable, but I'm no drinker." Miss Wuiters. attending a film festival in the Soviet capital, said she became ill Wednesday morning in her hotel room. "I called a maid and in no time three very handsome Russian doctors walked in and they looked like they were ready to operate," she said. "I got scared and called the American Embas sy after the doctors advised me to go to the bospitaL The embassy was no help. They said should go." But Miss Winters-'said she stood her ground and the doctors "pumped my stomach out in the hotel room." CABNIVAL By Dick Turner Border swap progressing on Rio Grande EL PASO, Tex. (UPI) - Four hundred and thirty-seven acres of El Paso lacked only the approval of the U.S. Senate and the Mexican Congress today before formally becoming part of Mexico. Presidents Kennedy and Adolfo Lopez Mateos sunultaneously dis"- closed Thursday that Mexico would get a net of 437 acres in settlement of the 99-year-old El Chamizal (The Thicket) dispute. Me.xico, in a complicated swap, would get 71 acres more than it origmaly claimed in the Chamizal. The area, between downtown El Paso and the border, has 3,700 residents. The settlement was greeted with a few jeers in El Paso and a few cheers in Juarez, El Paso's sister city across the border. —The United States would transfer 366 acres of the disputed Chamizal zone and 254 acres east of Mexican-owned Cordova island to Mexico. —For the 193 island acres gained the United States, 193 acres would remain in Mexico. Mexico would get a net of 437 acres. —The United States and Mexico would divide the cost of relocating the Rio Grande and line the bottom with concrete, so the channel cannot change again. —A private Mexican bank would pay the United States $4,760,000 for the 382 buildings in the area. —The U.S. government would reimburse American citizens for land and improvements in the Chamizal, a total of about $2L7 million. e KM w Mm.

B. never would have sat in the balcony, of course. Eight tnunpeters, dressed in gold and old lace, were on the stage. They heralded HRH's arrival in the royal box, with the entire audience standing stiffly at attention. Then a red-coaled "household" cavalry band in the orchestra pit played the British national anthem. With the start of the movie, a film version of Henry Fielding's classic novel of mid-18th century life in England, I was sorry about HRH up there in the balcony being out of my vision. For as "Tom Jones" unfolded. I was increasingly courious as to HRH's reaction to the film. The star of "Tom Jones" is the brilliant youny (26) Albert Finney and, as I've indicated, he plays sort of a male version of the celebranted Miss (Forever) .Amber. The feminine roles, sparked by Diane Cilento's ribald and earthy Molly, portrayed uninhibited daughters and or straying wives. Lusty and bawdy are words of understatement in describing the film, and I suspect there will be more than a bit of censoring for TELEVISION IN REVIEW By RICK DU BROW "Why do they always have to have kid shows right before the evening news?" U.S. release. Capt. F. M. Loyd. Public Information Officer, U. S. Navy, disputes my report that Honolulu television screens are being distorted by radar interference coming from Pearl Harbor based submarines. My report was based on the word of Ed Dukotf, manager of a closed curcuit Hawaiian television network, and the complaints of, Honolulu friends, who said their television repairmen blamed submarine radar for distorted images. The FCC, television transmitting engineers, the head of the Navy's electronics lab and the president of the Hawaiian Telephone Company — all say such interference is impossible. It is a real television mystery Hawaii fans would like to see solved once and for all. HOLLYWOOD (UPD — One of the drawbacks of reviewing television is that we no longer get a chance to interview celebrities and hear them discourse with scintillation about the world, life and themselves, not necessarily in that order. Thus, before leaving Saturday for three weeks of vacation, we would like to unburden ourself of the sort of conversation that we miss most, from the lips of the famous, so you will understand our feeling of loss and the qualities of endearment. Naturally, none of the folowing characters could possibly be more fictitious, and any resemblance to living persons is totaly improbable. There, presenting— The Beloved Studio Boss: "You know, we're going to make a series about Scotland Yard, but I refuse to go to London. Bight here in Hollyivood, we have the best actors, the best equipment, the best everything in the film business. Sure, maybe we could get a little more reality shooting on location, but I love this town. It made me what I am today. I won't take a nickel out of it. We'll build Scotland Yard here." The Beloved Producer: "The only word I can use to tell you how I feel about this business is— love. You know, I still get goose pimples when I realize that one flick of a television knob can send pictures around the world. I'm tired of hearing complaints about television. The public is spoiled. My kids have learned all about the world without ever leaving home. They know a lot more than I did at their age." The Beloved Character Actor, D. K. Ford: "What rights have the critics to criticize? What qualifications? What do they know about our business? Look at my qualifications in my studio biography: I was a bricklayer, a soda jerk, a truck driver, a short-order cook —I've learned my business! Sure. I'm in a western series, and I was skeptical at first, but now I can see the serious artistic concern." The Beloved Comedian, Jerry Martin: "What right have the critics got to criticize my work? I have more money than all of them. What right has anybody to ciiticize me? I have more money tllan anybody. Why should I listen to a director? No director has as much money as I have." The Beloved Romantic Series Hero, Mack Gardner: "I'm working too hard. I didn't really want to be an actor. Ten hours a day is too hard. My parts are not deeply emotional enough. I am going to take my resdiuals and start looking for my inner self." SELL IT TOMORROW With an ine-xpensive Classified Ad Does our community need more natural gas ? The Los Angeles Air Pollution Control District recommends that more natural gas be burned by industry. They say it is aclean fuel and would help deviate the smog problem. The local electric utilities seek to import more natural gas for their use because they say it is an efficient fuel in power plants. Frankly, we are glad to see such support for our product. However, a real difference of opinion exists as to who is best-equipped to supply natural gas to all users when the public interest is at stake. We submit that we are. Operating as we do, under regulation of the CaHfomia Public Utilities Commission and The Federal Power Commission, we are duty- bound to so balance our distribution of gas to home and industries that all are served efficiently and economically. Our 75-year record of good service at rates among the lowest in the nation speaks in our behalf. At the same time, those who hold another point of view would Eke to see a special pipeline built solely for the importation of industrial-use gas. This special pipeline would supply the demands of only a few large industrial users. This "special gas" business would not he regulated by State authority, and would have only limited Federal regulation. This "special gas" business would increase the cost of yoiu: household gas. We are therefore pleased to note that the Federal Power Commission, in an opinion dated July 13, has decided to launch a complete investigation of the needs of our community for natural gas supplies and the best way to meet those needs. This commission (appointed by the President and confirmed by the U.S. Senate) will study the problem with only one objective in mind: What is best for the public interest? Such problems as how natural gas relates to the smog problem; how gas is best delivered and distributed; how the customers' interests are best served; and how the basic natural resources of our nation are best conserved will be decided by this government body. In the wake of the announcement of the Federal Power Commission review, and in advance of the decisions which are to come, we make the following assurances: Our companies will do whatever is found to be necessary to protect the public health and economy. Our companies subscribe to the policy of regulation of natural resources in the public interest. Our companies are willing to provide for all the natural gas needs of Southern California, as they are determined by County, State and Federal regulatory agencies.
