(UPI) — It was the fabled New "York Yankees who gave way to World Series pressure. In the key seventh game, they messed up a double play which might : have, prevented a three run inning for the St. Louis Cardinals; they got caught in a double play- which killed a potential winning rally and they wound up committing nine errors in seven games. "Every break they got .they capitalized on," Manager Yogi Berra said of the.victorious St. Louis Cardinals. "It seemed that every time we made an- error, they scored," Stottlemyre Hurt Shoulder One play Thursday forced BUY U. S. SAVINGS •• BONDS Berra to take out his choice to pitch the most crucial game of the season,. Mel Stottlemyre, and. it set up the go-ahead inning for the ^winners. .It came with Ken Boyer on second, Dick Groat on first and none out in the fourth. Tim McCarver grounded to Joe Pepitone, wha threw to Phil linz ior the forceout at second. But Linz* relay to first was. wide, and Stottlemyre, running for the base, hurt his shoulder diving for the ball. Boyer scored on the play and before the inning ended, the Cards had two more runs. "Groat hit me after I threw," Linz said. "The pitcher is supposed to cover on the play, and he was still running for the bag. I was throwing for the base and I threw it too wide." Picks Downing Berra's choice to replace Stottlemyre was lefthander Al Downing, and he defended his selection. "It -was the right spot to bring' in Downing," he said. "He'd had three days rest and they've got two lefthanders coming up. If he holds up, we're in good shape." J3ut Downing didn't. He faced three men, gave up three hits, and the Yankees were in trouble. ... • .

McPHERSONS 126 . Main OS 5-4483 Arkansas to Test Texas By United Press International Beat the champ is a popular game in . college football and this week it's Arkansas' turn to try its skill at upsetting Texas. The Longhorns of Texas have not dropped, a regular season game since 1961 and lat year they swept through 11 straight opponents, including Navy in the Cotton Bowl, claim the national "championship. • The story has been much the same for Texas this season despite the losses through graduation of many outstanding players. Texas currently is riding high with a 4-0 record and top,place in the national rankings. To Arkansas, this just makes the Longhorns stand out as Grade A prime beef ready for the kill. They will bring a perfect 4-0 record into Saturday's game at Austin and although they're a two-touchdown underdog the Razorbacks have been preparing for this meeting all campaign. The chief beneficiary of an Arkansas upset could be Ohio State, which is ranked second in the country. The Buckeyes, boasting a well-balanced squad, already have overcome Southern Methodist, Indiana and Illinois and, are; picked to beat Southern California by six points on Saturday. All of the", other, top-ranked teams that 'will see action Saturday are favored ;to continue their winning ways. Third-ranked Alabama is a solid 13-poirit choice over Southern Conference rival Tennessee; Notre Dame • is favored by 14 points to beat UCLA and protect its No. 4 position; and fifth- ranked Michigan .is picked to, beat Purdue by eight points. Sixth-ranked Nebraska is an 18-point favorite over Kansas State; seventh-ranked Syracuse is 6 -over 'Penn State; eighth- ranked Georgia Tech gets the nod by a single point over Auburn and ninth-ranked Florida still hopes to continue its momentum against South Carolina. U. S. SAVINGS, BONDS Extra Points Hart Packers - If it had not been for two missed' extra - point attempts— and missing one is a rarity in professional football—the powerful Green Bay Packers would be "unbeaten and in the driver's seat in' their bid lor a third National Football League title in four years. The two ;miscues by Packer place-kicker (Paul Hornung, one against the Baltimore Colts and the' other against the Minnesota Vikings, were responsible for two: one-point defeats,and now Green Bay, with a 3-2 record faces an uphill fight for another championship. The. Packers (3-2) have • a chance to avenge one of those losses and also put the brakes on the steamrolling Colts when they invade Baltimore this Sun- The Colts (4-1), fielding their most explosive team since the championship days of 1958 and 1959, are favored by two points to rack up their fifth straight In order to pull the upset, the Packers must stop- the strong running game Baltimore has displayed this season, most recently in last Monday's 47-27 trouncing of the previously un defeated S.t. Louis Cardinals, That victory • moved the Colts into sole possession of first place in the Western Division. The Packers go into the game troubled by injuries. Hornung, the league's leading scorer, and guard Fuzzy Thurston . are doubtful starters, while defensive back Herb Adderley and defensive tackle Henry Jordan may see only limited action. In other games Sunday, the Bears (2-3) were Vh favorites over Detroit (3-1-1) at Chicago; the Giants, (1-3-1) were a 6<A Doint pick over Philadelphia (2-3) at New York; the Cardinals (3-1-1)'were 10 over Washington (1-4) at St. Louis; Cleveland (3-1-1) was 8V6 over the Cowboys (1-3-1) at Dallas; the yikings (2-3) were 6V4 over Pittsburgh (3t-2) at Minnesota, and the Rams (2-2-1). were 3V6 over San Francisco (2-3) at Los Angeles.

CIDAA "State Road 28 East Phone OS 5-7426 from (Bob Dickson, the Alex sports scribe, urged us to warn all Tipton fans, driving to Alex for tonight's game NOT TO GO THROUGH TOWN! The Tiger fans are staging.a massive Homecoming Parade this evening before the game which will block all traffic in that community and probably make fans attempting to use that method of access to the football field late for the start' of the game. Instead, Tipton fans are urged to follow State Road 28, east of the entrance to the business section and turn south on State Road 9 until they pass the Cc- pher Plymouth showroom and garage. Turn west on the first road south of the Copher esta blishment directly to. the foot- iball field where there is ample parking space. This one" is going to be a football game too. The Tigers, building on the enthusiasm generated by the-Homecoming, will be "higher", than a. kite. They've gotten several shots in the arm this week, figuratively, and the Blue Devils are going to learn early in the ball game.that this is no patsy they've got on their hands. Fans who can't make it to the game can follow the action through WBMP-FM, but if there is anyway at all. they can make it, our advice is tp be on hand and not have to say afterward that they're sorry they missed it. Will Be Ready The Tigers of coach Jim Weh- sollek"know very well that Tipton has a fine .ball club, but they're far from awed over the fact. Determination is one of the most important factors in football and this as one qualification Alex will have in plentitude tonight. For a full year now they've had that. 63-6 score thrown in their face and they're sick and tired of it. They are only normal youngsters, in every respect, and it is only normal that they react with one whale of an effort tonight to throw that score right back in the Blue Devils' faces. Personally, we think the Satans have just a litle too much manpower, but they're, going to have to utilize every bit of that to- repluse this fired up club. See you there. Suspension? • One of the most heart-breaking incidents we've ever heard of occured a week ago when in a. game between Plymouth and Rochester, with only 16 seconds remaining and Plymouth, leading 12-0, a Rochester player permitted his frustration to get the 'best of him when he was ejected from a ball game for grabbing a mask, and he slugged the referee,, knocking the man unconscious. Everyone concerned was shocked. Today the school, the players, .the football arid basketball coaches are still in a stuned state of suspense ; wondering what is going to happen to them. I.H.S.A.A. commissioner Phil Eskew permitted Rochs- ter to play this week's scheduled game but warned them that the Board pf Control is to meet in Indianapolis October 21 to determine what action to take, and reminded that a possible suspension from the I.H.S.A.A. is in the offing. It's- a - shame that one un- ibridled temper can affect so many others and we hope that; no matter what the provocation no Tipton boy will ever let himself get so far out of hand. Olympic Winner Five summers ago, in 1959 |: • dijsow the comfort of SWEEPING SUPER FLOOR HEAT . Don't go through another, winter with high fuel bills and cold floors. It costs you nothing to find .out how to enjoy taper floor heat and slash' fuel bills at the same time. GOLDSMITH $ GoJdtmttn, Indiana ^ •we took Dave Osborn of Windfall, several Tipton and area runners who comprised the Tipton track club to an A.A.U. track meet in Fort Wayne. There was competition in both, high school and college age divisions and some of the top. athletes of the midwest were on the program. A young fellow who had just graduated from high school in. suburban Detroit, Michigan, a month earlier, entered himself in the 120 high hurdles and the 220 and 440 low hurdles. Running against top college competition he won them all. His time, running over the hurdles for 440 yards was trie equal of the alltime T.H.S. record for the 440 yard dash WITHOUT hurdles. Yesterday, that same young man, Rex Crawley by name, won the 400 meter hurdles for United States in the 1964 Olympic games in Tokyo. We recall the young fellow being interviewed after that meet at IFort Wayne and being asked where he was going to college. He was quite emphatic that he was enrolling at Michigan. But his name popped up .that Fall as a freshman at Southern Cal., and under that sunshiny weather he continued his progress which was climaxed yesterday' by beating the finest hurdlers in the world. State Ratings We're just a little bit surprised at some of the reaction around the conference at Tipton getting a rating in the state football poll. In some circles there seems a tendency to downgrade the Blue Devils instead of using their rating as an incentive to fire-up their own teams to "knock - off" the Devils and elevate their own status. It was indeed unfortunate that Elwood was unable tp play Tipton while at full strength for that could have been a midhty fine football game. We admire coach Larry Shook, for standing by his guns, when he felt' disciplinary action was necessary against several of his players, even though he knew it would weaken the Panthers, in a game that could possibly have meant the CIC championship. No one now, will ever know what the Panthers might have done against' Tipton at full strength. The closest elimination of that might come tonight when the Panthers play a very good Peru team which Tipton will face October 30. Peru is rated in the state in the Associated Press poll, and stands a very good chance of moving into the state's elite and displacing Tipton in the UPI coaches' poll if they defeat the Devils Oct. 30. .Instead bf taking that reaction however, and it's where they finish the season that counts, the reaction now is to downgrade the Devils' by pointing to their loss Jo Carmel. . We're not belittling the Tigers of Peru in the slightest. They have a very fine ball club and in view of the season record of the respective teams we have to regard their tie with Wabash as a sheer accident. Let's Play It Actually,'we feel that October 30 is going to determine the CIC championship unless , Elwood takes a hand tonight, but the Panthers are handicapped without ace halfback John Burton for the rest of the season and we're afraid that handicap is more than they can stand against Peru. Coach Bcb Larson has the biggest and possibly the strongest, line in the CIC. He's got a great fullback and he's got last • year's all - Kentucky quarterback doing his signal calling and passing.
