Local College Team Drops First Galesburg Register-Moil, Golesburg, 111. Monday, June 24 r 1963 IS two losses put a damper on the opening weekend of the season for the Galesburg entry in the Central Illinois Collegiate Baseball League. A last-ditch rally fell short for the locals as they fell to Bloomington, 3-2, on Saturday. Peoria, however, did not allow the Galesburg crew to get close on Sunday, jumping off to an 8-0 lead after two innings and going on to win, 12-2. At Bloomington, Galesburg saw the home team grab a 2-0 advantage when Bill Wolff, who had reached first on an error and second base on a wild pitch, sped home on a single to centerfield by Tom Steward. Rich Bullock, Bloomington second sacker, lined a shot to the mound which drew a hurried throw from Gales­ burg pitcher John Hermanek. The throw, which got by first baseman Jim Jenks, allowed Steward to score from first base. Bloomington scored another unearned run in the fourth inning when Bullock walked with one out and went to third base on a bad throw from Hermanek on an attempted pickoff play at first base. Pinchhitter Denny DellaPina drove in Bullock with the third Bloomington score. Galesburg finally dented the scoring column in the last inning. Dick Johnson, appearing in a pinchhitting role, walked and came around to score on Tom Simon's triple to deep left centerfield. Dennis Doyle, Galesburg's second sacker, singled in Simon, but FIRST BALL—Jim Hardine, president of the local franchise of the Central Illinois Collegiate Baseball League, throws out the first ball before the home opener for the local club, Sunday afternoon.

The ball cleared the fence in dead center field. Chuck Schacht went the route for the victory and blanked Kankakee in every inning except the third. He allowed six hits while his teammates came up with five safeties. Pat Prina was a key man in the Galesburg attack with three hits in four trips to the plate. In the championship game played Sunday afternoon, Bloomington jumped out into a lead with three runs in-the top of the third and was never headed despite the fact that Galesburg outhit the visitors 11-8.

S. Title Hopes Soar In Tennis WIMBLEDON, England (API- America's hopes of winning the Wimbledon men's singles championship—regarded as the most glamorous in amateur tennis—are the brightest in eight years. Chuck McKinley of St. Louis, Dennis . Ralston of Bakersfield, Calif, are the two leading hopes of Uncle Sam in the tourney opening today with William Lenoir,of Tucson, Ariz, a possible dark horse. Lenoir, ill-favored in the draw, faced a giant task in the first round, paired against top-seeded Roy Emerson of Australia. McKinley, fourth-seeded, was paired against Colin Drysdale of South Africa and Ralston was down to meet Laci Legenstein, Austria, in other first round matches. Ralston, a student at Southern California, is the new collegiate champion of the United States. He won the NCAA crown Saturday at Princeton, N.J. With Rod Laver, of Australia, the Wimbledon winner the last two years, now a professional, the U.S. hopes of winning are considered the brightest since Tony Trabert took the title back to America in 1955.

READ THE CLASSIFIEDS I Seek Jobs For College Ball Players The problem of finding jobs for players on the Galesburg Collegiate Baseball team was discussed Sunday at a special meeting of the board of directors. Bob Frank, business manager, reported there were still 15 players who, must be placed. Many of these came a great distance to play and will be forced to quit the team and return home if jobs are-not provided shortly. , These players could handle a wide range of jobs, including general labor, selling and clerical work. Many qualify for positions in specific fields such as public relations, law, accounting, landscaping, banking and finance and physics and mathematics. Players employed will work at least 32 hours a week and more if necessary. Mondays and Fridays will be completely open for the boys since no games are scheduled for these days. In keeping with the college eligibility rules, all players must work and earn their own way. (Reg. U .S. Pat. Off.) By OSCAR FRALEY UPI Sports Writer BROOKLINE, Mass. (UPI)—It isn 't often that the old ones catch lightning in a bottle. Some of them have it early and the glory that happened in their youth makes the long walk down the corridors of time a bit more bearable. Others never get it at all and the journey is one through a night without stars. But to catch it big when the hours are late and the pages of the calendar are getting tattered is the biggest way of all. Jimmy Braddock knew it when, a stevedore off the docks, he came out of the cauliflower shadows to win the heavyweight championship of the world. Satchel Paige never fought the seemingly inpenetrable baseball barrier and was a rocking chair case when the way finally was cleared. Archie Moore had to wait eternities because ot a skill which frightened off other so-called gladiators. Recaptured It But to have had it once and' then get it back again when the i lights are glowing dim means j that a man is a special target ofi the angels. 1 Like Julius Boros. I Not that the man they call ' "The Moose" is old in the man- i ner in which time is measured. But he was 43 in March and even in the game of golf it's regarded as being far down the rocky side of the hill. But Sunday, on one of the roughest golf courses over which the coveted U.S. Open championship ever has been played, The Moose reached back 11 years into the past and wound once more the magic touch of youth which on storied occasions permits the old ones to beat youth to the lop. Eleven years ago, in the heat at Dallas, ho was a rugged iron artist at a prime 31 who stalked nonchalantly through blazing heat to interrupt Ben Hogan's skein of Open victories and win America's most coveted fairway prize. Long, Dry Spells In the decade between, the Moose twice had periods in which for three years he never won a tournament. Last spring, putting badly, he looked grimly at future days on the tour. "With five kids at home you've got to win," he said. But six weeks ago he began to roll like a prairie fire. The pokerfaced Hungarian with the slow, easy smile won the Colonial Invitation, finished second in two other tournaments and then won the Buick Open before finishing far back in the Thunderbird Classic and then traveling wear­ ily to Brookline for the Open. The Country Club is a tough course, with its wiry rough and greens the size of a Mohammedan prayer rug. But when the four regulation rounds were over, there was Boros in a three-way tie with golden boy Arnold Palmer and young Jacky Cupit. The Moose had to spot Palmer 10 years and Cupit 18 years. He did, and then beat them into extinction with his wondrous wedge by shooting a one under par 70 against a 73 for Cupit and a block-busting 76 for Palmer. Through it all, Boros was as dead-panned as a Mississippi riverboat gambler. But not inside. "I get pretty nervous inside," he admitted later. "I don't show it, but I'm human—I guess." You couldn't sell that to Palmer and Cupit. They had soon one of those rare sporting miracles those rare spouting miracles where one of the old ones caught lightning in a bottle.
