Galesburg never led In the game last night, but oddly enough, even with their bar* rage of errors, the Pioneers seemed to have a chance of winning until the final out Was made. The Caps jumped off to a 1-0 lead in the first inning when Jim pix and Mike Budd. fashioned back-to-back doubles. Three Galesburg errors aided Springfield in its two-run third inning effort. Chuck Krumme led off with a walk. Following Jim Dix's pop to shortstop, Krumme stole second and advanced to third when catcher Dennis Huffman's throw went into center field. Budd successfully squeezed Krumme home, and when Tim Thompson, Galesburg pitcher decided to throw to the plate, Budd reached first base. Mike Strode reached base on an error by the third baseman to place Springfield runners on first and second At this point, Don Douglas hit a shot which Justin Dedeaux, Pioneer shortstop,, knocked down and threw by the first baseman. Budd scored on the play. A two-run home run over the rightfield wall by Dedeaux brought Galesburg within one run of Springfield in the fourth frame, Denny Doyle, whose single was the first Galesburg safety of the game, was on base.

U. S. Trackmen Need Warm-TJps Before Meet WARSAW (AP) — Never again will the United States track team go to Moscow for the annual dual meet with the Soviet Union without s'.opping off for a warm-up meet first. That seemed certain today, after the coaches and officials had finished their analysis of the recent American invasion of Moscow that turned out only slightly better than Napoleon's. "I am making the very strong recommendation that we have at least one tune-up meet before the Russian meet in the future." coach Payton Jordan said here where the team is preparing for the meet with Poland Friday and Saturday. "I also think it is a good idea to get into Moscow only a day or two before the meet, and stay a few days afterwards for sightseeing," Jordan said. The team spent a week in Moscow this year before the meet, then almost lost it. The girls' (earn suffered one of the worst humiliations in American international sports history. "They went too long without competition," Jordan said. errors and a wild pitch to tally two more markers in the fifth. Budd, leading off the inning, reached second base as cen- terfielder Bob Bigfey muffed a routine fly ball. Doyle allowed Strode's v grounder to go through his legs to place Springfield runners on first and third. Douglas squeezed Budd home.with the fourth Cap run. Moments later, Huffman, attempting a pick-oft of Strode at second base, flung tho ball into centerficld to move the Springfield baserunncr to third base. Strode scored from there on a wild pitch. Galesburg dented the scoring column once more. With one away in the sixth, Blglcy walked. He went to second on Doj'lc's infield out and crossed the plate on Huffman's double down the leftfield line. The Caps added another run in the seventh when Gerry Boehmer walked after Springfield had loaded the bases with two walks and a hit batsman. Two walks in the top of the seventh with two men out set the stage for a final Galesburg rally, but Gary Bmington struck out to end the contest. The Caps used tl-ree pftchers, with, starter Dick Nelson gaining credit for the victory. He is now 2-3 for the season. Despite periodic losses of control, Thompson was impressive in a losing cause. He limited the Caps to four hits and struck out eight in a route-going effort. He walked five men. , Galesburg travels to Blooming- tor! tonight and then hosts the Bobcats Thursday night at 6 o'clock on Thomas H. Blodgett Field.

Stars Hope for Right Formula Against Packers CHICAGO (AP)-Football is a balanced combination of offense and defense and that's what the College All-Stars hope to develop before meeting the Green Bay Packers in Soldier Field Aug. 2. The All-Stars are not too worried about their offense which will be led by some of the nation's top quarterbacks ol IHI52 to say nothing of a host of speedy backs. But the All-Stars suddenly find they might have a defense which can contain the National Football League champions. Head Coach Otto Graham and some expert observers watched the All-Star hold two drills Tuesday and all agreed the team appears to have a stronger defense than the 1%2 squad which iell apart in the fourth quarter and lost to Green Bay, 42-20 Big linemen with speed to match their heftiness is the big reason that Graham and others believe the All-Stars might he able to contain tho Packers and overcome the odds to win.

Legion and CM All-Stars Will Compete Thursday Coach Sam Andree's Galesburg American Legion squad will take a break from tournament play to battle the Connie Mack League all-stars at II. T. Custer Park Thursday night. Game time is 7:45. The local legion, winners of the 15th District tournament last weekend, will play for the division championship in Jacksonville Saturday.

Andree has indicated that he plans to use several hurlers Thursday night as a "tune up" for Saturday's play. On Saturday, Galesburg will meet Jacksonville, the host team, at 3:30 p.m. If Galesburg should win against Jacksonville, the locals will take on the victor of the Moline-Peoria contest at 8 Saturday night. The Peoria club, which barely nosed out Limestone for the division crown, is made up of performers from all three Peoria high schools. Galesburg is attempting a successful defense of the state title which it won last summer.

Lodge, director of the Illinois Department of Conservation, said today. "Approximately 100,000 certificates are due for renewal during the calendar year, 1963," Lodge said. "As of now we have renewed only 50,000 of these, and approximately 30,000 are delinquent. I remind boat owners that the fine for operating a motorboat without a valid Certificate of Number is from $10 to $100, and that the Illinois Department of Conservation can cancel expired certificates. If a certificate is cancelled the boat owner must apply for a new one, and he will have to change the numbers on his boat hull to correspond with the new number 1 ." Lodge said that it is not necessary for a motorboat owner to wait until his certificate has expired before he can renew it. He can renew ahead of time if the expiration date is in 1963, without losing any time on this new certificate because the new certificate will be dated to expire three years after the expiration date on his old certificate. 1-1 in the first game until Manager Al Lopez called upon Taylor Phillips in the eighth inning, with two out.and a man on second.
