Donny Anderson, the Texas Tech halfback who received $600,000 to sign with the Packers was limping in the All-Star dressing room after the game. Anderson, who started out as a flanker back, suffered the injury the first time he carried the ball as a running back. The Packers, who were defeated 20-17 by the All-Stars in 1963, were up for this game although Coach Vince Lombardi discounted any thoughts of revenge. * * * "Revenge? I don't believe in the word," said Lombardi. "I can't remember as far back as 1963, but the boys were really up for this one." Fullback Jim Grabowski of Illinois, who got nearly $300,000 for signing with the Packers, called the All-Star performance a little embarrassing. "I sure wish we had gone a little better than we did," said Grabowski. "It got a little embarrassing out there. But I'm sure glad I'm going to the Packers. They're a real good team." Head Coach John Sauer of the All-Stars couldn't hide his disappointment, but he dismissed all notions that the Packers were trying to run up a score to avenge their 1963 loss. * * * "Vince isn't that kind of a guy, and I know he wouldn't do anything like that," Sauer said. "Green Bay is a good team, and they had all the psychology going for them. I can't cry about our loss. We knew we had cover them up the best way we could. "There are certain things you need in a game like this, and we didn't have them. You just can't go out and get other players. "Our pass protection fell apart, and we didn't expect hat, because it had stood n practice." By MIKE RATHET Associated Press Sports Writer CHICAGO (AP)-"Revenge?" Vince Lombardi mulled the question, then said: "I don't believe In.the word. I can't remember as far back as 1963." But everyone knows that elephants and Vince Lombardis never forget, and in 1963 the College All-Stars whipped Lorn- PACIFIC COAST Portland 4-3, Oklahoma City 3- Hawaii 2, Spokane 1 Vancouver 6, Denver 2 Phoenix 3, Indianapolis 2, 11 innings Tulsa 3, San Diego 2 Seattle 4, Tacoma 2 up bardl't Green Bay Packers 2017. So even Lombardi had to admit thaf'the boys were really up for this one" when they completely crushed the richest assemblage of All-! 'tar talent in history 38-0 Friday before a crowd of 72,000. The National Football League champions not only matched the biggest previous shutout in the 33-game series while amassing 388 yards on the ground and in the air but also throttled their own million-dollar babies, Donny Anderson and Jim Grabowski. COURIER NEWS 1 SATURDAY, AUGUST (, 1DM ~ PAQ1 aaax LEGION FORECAST: A Warm Sunday By ED HAYES Sports Editor Dwight Williams is wondering if he broke off more than he can comfortably nibble on. The last regular season game for his American Legion baseball team—in an afterthought of scheduling— is here Sunday afternoon at 2:30 against Oakville of Memphis. The visitors call themselves Li'l Abners. They come from a splashy semipro city league made up exclusively of 19 and 20-year-olds. "They might be a bit too fast for us," the boss of the Dud Casons said.

"We with more people would come out to see these youngsters in action," stat- R. D. Nash, Midget commissioner. HulHlNG IT'S LAST CALL FOR TEAL HUNTERS. The deadline for receiving the free—but necessary—teal permit is Aug. 10. All hunters, regardless of age, must have the permit to take in the special teal hunt, Sept. 10 through the 18th. Thus far, only 420 hunters have applied. Last year's hunt drew 5,400 applicants. A post card is O.K. Simply send your name, address, city and county of residence to the C&F Commission in Little Rock. In addition to the teal permit and valid Arkansas hunting license, hunters 16 and over-including hunters with lifetime permits-must also have a valid duck stamp to hunt green-Winged, blue-winged, and cinnamon teal. * * * Hunting dogs probably feel toward spring and summer as 12-year-old boys regard girls—this world would be better off without 'em. For a hunting dog, spring and summer seasons of loafing and waiting. It's also a season when some hunters may unintentially ignore their dogs needs. A dog's summer needs are simple. He needs shelter in a shady spot, lots of fresh water, good food and room in. which to run and exercise. But dogs permitted to run freei as a means of exercise are a menace to young game, in addition to risking death at the wheels of a car on the highway. Dogs are not allowed to run at large or unattended in game areas during May, June, and July, and cannot be turned loose to chase deer during the closed season. Dogs may be used to chase fox and racoon for pleasure, and all dogs must be licensed with the name and address of the owner either attached to a collar or tattoed in the dog's ear. A little summertime care for your dog could mean the difference between a good hunting season with Rover or a poor one. Having the dog penned up or licensed properly could also prevent a costly hunt. ought to be good experience any way you look at it." The Blytheville boys haven't played a game since winning the District 2-B tournament last Sunday. Even that wasn't much competition. The Casons swept through the five-day event without a serious challenge. No doubt they need the work and challenge, with the state Legion tournament due to open here Wednesday. Blytheville's first game in the state is Wednesday night at 8 against Kerwins of Fort Smith. There are three other battles Wednesday starting with Pine Bluff vs. De Janis of North Little Rock at 9 a.m. The other day frays are Bryant vs. Colonial of Little Rock at 1; and one that should be well-attended, that should be well attended, West Memphis vs. Batesville. Bryant, with a 22-3 record, reportedly has a hot-shot pitcher. Williams hasn't announced his starting pitcher for the Sunday game. Could be the skipper will want to look at several, including Walt Hampton whose back has been a problem. Some of the better known Oakville players are John Grice, Wally Walker and Grant Chambers. Grice and Chambers are from Memphis State. Admissions Sunday are 50 cents and 25 cents. Season tickets are still good. 57 yards to the six. The fened The two Packer rookies, Anderson with a $600,000 price tag and Grabowski with a $300,000 label, handled the ball seven times between them and wound up gaining 24 yards. While Grabowski and Anderson were being embarrassed, the two running backs they hope to replace, Jim Taylor and Paul Hornung, combined with quarterback Bart Starr as the Packers rolled relentlessly through the All-Star defense. Taylor ripped off 75-yards in 15 carries and scored on runs of one and 13 yards. Hornung carried nine times for 44 yards and set lip one touchdown before he had the wind knocked out of him and left. Starr completed 13 of 22 passes for 177 yards, hitting Boyd Dowler with a 10-yard touchdown pass and firing a 13- yard scoring strike to Bill Anderson. The other Green Bay touchdown was scored by Herb Adderley on a 34-yard run with an interception. Don Chandler kicked a 17-yard field goal. * * * The All-Stars, unable to penetrate past the Green Bay 45 in the first half while Steve Sloan of Alabama and Billy Anderson of Tulsa were handling the quarterbacking chores, had their biggest moment in the third quarter when Missouri quarterback Gary Lane raced ball oa the 13.
