MONDAY, NOVEMBER 14, 1966 THE REGISTER-NEWS — MT. VERNON, ILLINOIS SPARTANS VS. IRISH IN "GAME OF YEAR" Successor Wins Big $314 J25 Garden State NEW YORK (AP) - Successor, a well-named full brother of the 1964 2-year-old champion Bold Lad, has made his 85-year- old owner almost prophetic. When Succe.ssor came charg- Jnc; down Garden State Park's sloppy stretch last Saturday after a sluRRish start and won the %]\im Garden Slate Stakes he not only assured himself of the 2-year-old crown but made Mrs. Henry Carnegie Phipps look good for the selection of his name. Successor also gave the Phipps family the distinction of owning three straight 2-year-old champions. Buckpasser, carry- in-.; the Ijlack silks of 0 g d e n Phipps, Mrs. Phipps' son, won the title last year and has gone on this year to rate best of the 3-year-olds and take horse of the year honors. The Garden State, last major race of the year for 2-year-olds, wrapped up a wealthy weekend of thoroughbreds racing. It started Friday at Laurel, Md., with France's Bohistoun and Russia's Aniline running one-two ahead of America's grass course champion, Assa­ gai, in the $150,000 Washington D.C. International. AUGUSTA,- Ga. (AP)-Richard Petty has added the Cracker 300 to his collection of first place trophies won in stock car races.

Surtees Beats Chaparrals In Las Vegas Prix LAS VEGAS, Nev. (AP)-England's John Surtees predicted that if the winged Chaparrals from Texas ran into trouble with their wings, ho could win the rich Stardust Grand Pi'ix. Tlie Chaparrals did have trouble Sundfiy. and Surtees did win. By finishing first, he also won the Cfuiadian - American Challenge Cup series, wtiich gave him an added $19,250. The Grand Prix win was worth $11,000, plus accessory money. Tlie British driver, a veteran motorcycle and auto racing champion, took the lead in the first lap of the 210-mile auto race and finished 59 seconds ahead of New Zealand's Bruce McLaren, who collected $5,000. Ptiil Hiii of Santa Monica, Calif., and Jim Hall of Midland, Tex., driving the white Chevro- Icf-powcrcd Chaparrals, had won front starting positions with qualifying times that smashed the track record. But Hall was forced out of the race after four laps when his movalile airfoil—which is intended to give him better control—began flapping. Hill's airfoil also began flapping later in the race. He was in fourtli place after about 40 laps when he went to the pits to have the wing removed. He fin- islicd in seventh place.

Wa !fonYJll«t Road Phone 242-1267 28 Under Pari Arnie -Jack Win Canada Cup For U.S. By BOB IVIYERS TOKYO (AP) - Jack Nicklaus and Arnold Palmer, who have a pleasant custom of picking up expensive hardware, retrieved one of their favorite pieces — the Canada Cup — and headed back to the United States today. . And its companion piece, the International Trophy for individual victory, heads back to Canada for the first time in 12 years, thanks to a wire-to-wire victory by young George Knudson of Toronto. "We came to win the Canada Cup as a team. We're glad we can taJce it back home." agreed Palmer and big Jack, who have taken it home on three previous occasions. The 14th annual Canada Cup matches concluded Sunday in rain and cold ^t the Yomiuri Country Club on the outskirts of Tokyo with these results: The Nicklaus-Palmer team scored a combined total of 548 strokes for 72 holes, 28 under par, breaking their own record of 554 established In Hawaii in 1964. The ebulient Knudsbri finished the 72 holes tied with Japan's husky belter, Hideyo Sugimoto, at 272, tying the individual record set by old Sam Snead in 1961 in Puerto Rico. Knudson then defeated the Japanese star on the second hole of the sudden death playoff, sinking a seven-foot putt for a birdie tiwo to the theoretical par by Sugimoto. Canada's Stan Leonard won the trophy in the infant yeai-s of the matches in 1954 and 1959. Nicklaus had a 69 for 273 and at one stage was even with Knudson. Palmer, four strokes back of the Canadian starting out, had 72 for 275. Knudson, who had a 64 the first day, then 68-66, was asked why he scored badly. A friendly and forthright young fellow, he replied frankly, "I played poorly." "I didn't putt very well — except on the last hole," he said, referring to his winning putt against Sugimoto. Gary Player of South Africa, the 19^ champion, shot a final 68 for 277. His teammate, Hai^ old Henning, had a 70 for 276. The two, who won the team title last year, were second this time at 553. Formosa, 554, and Australia, 556, followed. Detroit QB Plays With Broken Ribs MINNEAPOLIS - ST. PAUL (AP) — Detroit Lions' quai'ter- back Karl Sweetan—a rookie who completed 24 of 41 passes against the Minnesota Vikings Sunday—disclosed after the National Football League game he had played with two broken ribs. "I didn't want to say anything for fear I wouldn't be able to play," Sweetan said in -the dressing room after the Lions had nipped the Vikings 32-31. "I thought I had injured them last week in Chicago," he said. "I went to my family doctor. I asked him to keep it a secret if he found anything wrong. "He took X rays and found the ribs were broken. But he kept his word. He didn't tell anyone." When informed of Sweetan's Injury, Detroit Coach Harry Gilmer said: "I never knew or I wouldn't have played him." Further X rays were planned .today lor Sweetan to determine if he had aggravated the injury* By MIKE RECHT Associated Press Sports Writer Nobody can quibble with Ara Parseghian and Duffy Daugherty this week when they are quoted as saying: "We're not looking past this week's game." That's the cliche the two coaches have stuck with most of the season, but this time it is for real. This is the week Parseghian's top-ranked Notre Dame and Daugherty's second - rated Michigan State meet in one of the most eagerly awaited college football games in years. The Irish and Spartans set up their unbeaten battle with easy victories last Saturday, Notre Dame over Duke 64-0 and Michigan State over Indiana 37-19. Ten-y Hanratty, back on the beam, completed eight of 13 passes for 127 yards and two touchdowns, one to favorite receiver Jim Seymour. The Irish also intercepted four passes in upping their record to 8-0. Michigan State, winning its second straight Big Ten title, piled up a 37-7 lead as Jimmy Raye threw for three touchdowns and the defense held the Hoosiers to a minus 10 yards rushing. With Michigan State ineligible for a Rose Bowl bid after going last year, Purdue, 5-1, wrapped up an almost certain bowl trip by polishing off chief challenger Minnesota 16-0. Illinois, 4-2, clobbered Wisconsin 49-14, but even an lUini victory over Northwestern Saturday and a Purdue loss to Indiana would give the Boilermakers the bid because they have never made the bowl trip before. Another conference title was settled when Undefeated Nebraska, No. 4 In The Associated Press poll, clinched its fourth straight Big Eight crown by overcoming Oklahoma State 216 while Missouri eliminated Oklahoma 10-7. Arkansas, 5-1, set up its un^ precedented third straight Southwestern Conference title and a Cotton Bowl trip by deal ing Southern Methodist its first defeat, 22-0 on Dave Dickey's two scores. The Razorbacks, ranked sixth, need only a victory over six-time loser Texas Tech Saturday to clinch at least a tie and a certain bowl bid. A 52-yard pass from Kirby Moore to Hardy King helped Georgia to a 21-13 triumph over Auburn and gave the ninth- ranked Bulldogs at least a share of the Southeastern Conference flag with a &-0 mark. The Bulldogs had to come back from a 13-0 halftime deficit. Georgia has completed its conference schedule but Alabama can tie by beating Auburn Dec. 3. The unbeaten Crimson Tide, No. 3, belted South Carolina 24-0 for its 13th straight victory. UCLA, No. 8. struggled by Stanford 10-0 on Gary Beban's 24-yard scoring run, but its Pacific 8 title and Rose Bowl hopes were jolted when Beban later suffered a broken ankle. The star quarterback will miss Saturday's showdown game against Southern California, which is the other half of the regionally televised doubleheader after the Notre Dame-Michigan State affair. Southern Cal, ranked seventh, leads the league at 4-0. It did not play last Saturday. In other games involving Top Ten teams, Georgia Tech, No. 5, rolled by Penn State 21-0 as Lari-y Good ran for one touchdown and passed 20 yards for another, and Tennessee, No. 10, lost to Mississippi 14-7 on Jerry Richardson's 51-yard run with a recovered fumble in the last two minutes. Decide It On field"-Dufiy EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) — Michigan State Coach Duffy Daugherty said Sunday the Spartans-Notre Dame football game is "a great opportunity to decide the national championship on the field of play." Tlie No. 2 ranked Spartans meet top-rated Notre Dame at Spartan Stadium Saturday. Daugherty, who has advocated a national collegiate football playoff similar to other NCAA championships, made the remark during a television interview in Lansing. He said the collegiate championship usually is "decided by comparative scores or in the polls." QBGary Beban Of UCLA Breaks Bone In Ankle LOS ANGELES (AP) - Next Saturday, when the coaches discuss the turning point of the UCLA-Southern California football game, they well might pick a routine third-down play seven days earlier. For on that wobbly incom­ pleted pass, UCLA quarterback Gary Beban suffered a broken bone in the right leg just above fee ankle. The bruins were ahead of fumbling Stanford at the time and went on to a 10-0 victory, but Beban, the versatile guiding force of the offense, was lost for the Bruins' biggest game. UCLA, with Beban breaking the school's career yardage record in his junior year, has won eight of nine games, but has to beat use for the chance to defend the Bruins' Rose Bowl championship. The Trojans, also 8-1, have already clinched the Pacific 8 title, but must await a vote from conference officials to determine the. bowl bid. The winner of next weekend's game is the likely nominee to represent the West against the Big Ten.
