Coach Says U.S. Trackmen Beginning to Produce Galesburg .Regjster«Mall, Galesbura, III. Satujtiay,_July 27, 1963 13 WARSAW, Poland (AP) - "I just wish we'd had a warm-up meet before we went to Moscow. This team is really jelling, now," Payton Jordan, coach of the touring U.S. track and field team, said today. The American men, rebounding from the narrowest victory in history against the Russians last weekend, rolled it up on the Poles in the opener of the two-day meet Friday, 68-36. John Pcnnel of Miami, Fla., capped the performance in darkness with a world record leap in the pole vault. Penncl leaped an officially an- Piersail Lands Job BOSTON (UPI) - Bouncy Jimmy Picrsall was expected to land back on his feet and in the major leagues today after being released three days ago by the New York Mets. The veteran outfielder was expected to sign with the Los Angeles Angels as soon as the 72- hour waiver period expired today. Picrsall was returning to the American League at the place where he broke in 11 years ago. His short-term unemployment was only the latest chapter in one of baseball's more colorful careers. Piersail, a new resident of the Hyannis Port neighborhood where President Kennedy established his summer White House, was reported to have come to terms during weekend discussions with Los Angeles manager Bill Rigney in New York. Picrsall admitted Friday that he had gotten a major league job but said the formal announcement would have to come from the club which hired him. At the time he was given his release by the Mets, the 33-year-old outfielder, who came originally from Naugatuck, Conn., was batting only .193 in 40 games. He had been idled by a foot injury but it was believed he had fully recovered. nounced 5.10 meters, or 16 feet. 8 a /4 Inches. Actually, he cleared the bar at 5.105 meters, or 16-9, but the metric measurement was rounded off to 5.10. An application will be made for a record at that height. The reason for all this centimeter-splitting was that Pennel set the present standard himself on July 13 in London with a leap that was announced there as lfi- 8 3 /4. But the metric equivalent Wisconsin Tops Quincy, 6-5 In Midwest By United Press International Wisconsin Rapids edged past Quincy 6-5 Friday night to hang on to its lead in the Midwest Baseball League and send the Jets back into the cellar. The game as a 13 inning affair with the Senators' last two runs attributed to Quincy errors. The Jets nearly tied it up again in the last frame, coming back with one run. There was another high scoring meet at Burlington, where Clinton dumped the Bees, 15-4. Fox Cities lost a heart-breaker to Decatur 4-3 on a ninth inning wild pitch. In other action, Cedar Rapids blanked Quad Cities, 7-0. Cedar Rapids outfielder Larry Scoggins had three doubles and drove in three runs. Pitcher Dave Galligan held the Angels to only one hit. Weekend action puts Dubuque at Wisconsin Rapids, Quincy at Cedar Rapids, Decatur at Waterloo, Quad Cities at Clinton and Burlington at Fox Cities. Takes First CHICAGO (UPD-Avalon Bomber won the $10,000 Express Colby Invitational trot Friday at Sportsman's Park. Darn Dandy was 2 ¥i lengths behind in second, and Carolina Rodney was third. The win boosted the 7-year-old Chestertown gelding's earnings for 14 starts this season to $21,633. was listed as 5.008. Even Pennel didn't know the exact metric mark he made in London, "They announced it only in feet and inches," he said. The vaulter tried to make the whole thing academic by going for 17 feet but darkness fell on ultra-modern Tenth Anniversary Stadium, which is equipped with almost everything but lights. Two automobiles were rushed in from the parking lot to cast their lights on the scene and thousands of Poles made torches of rolled- up newspapers. In this eerie setting, Pennel tried at 17 feet but couldn't make it. Pennel's performance capped a day when everything went right for the Americans. In all the Americans took nine victories in 10 events. The other 10 events come off today. Hie American gals, humiliated in Moscow, snapped back too, won two of five events and trailed only 27-24 at the end of the first day. LL White Sox Upset Tigers, Cubs Defeat Braves, 8-5 The White Sox upset the Tigers, 9-6, and the Cubs stopped the Braves, 8-5, in Little League action at O. N. Custer Park, Saturday night. Larry Carr's three hits paced the White Sox to their triumph All-Stars to Be in Peak Of Condition CHICAGO (AP) - The College All-Stars expect to be in the peak of condition when they meet the Green Bay Packers in Soldier Field Friday night in the 30th renewal of the midsummer football classic. Following their 13-12 scrimmage against the Chicago Bears in Rensselaer, Ind., Thursday, the Stars reported little more than the customary bumps and bruises. Head Coach Otto Graham warned his players not to rest on their excellent performance against the Bears. He also said the final week of drills will be devoted to acquiring finesse in general play. The Packers will be favored by as much as three touchdowns despite the excellent showing of the All-Stars in their workouts and their battle against the Bears. Come From All Over Winners in Golf Tourneys Not Limited to US Stars (Reg. U.S. Pat. Off.) By OSCAR FRALEY UPI Sports Writer NEW YORK (UPD-There was a time in golf when it was Texas against the world but the game has risen to such stature internationally today that the United States must struggle to hold its own. Go back a few years to when you have such as Ben Hogan, Byron Nelson, Lloyd Mangrum, Jimmy Dcmaret, Jackie Burke and Henry Ransom, just to name a few. As a team they could not only have taken on a group from the rest of the nation and walloped their britches but the rest HARD SMASH A "smash" like this could lead one from the tennis court to a court of law. Be sure you have protection against claims arising from your summer sports activities. Ask about our Homeowners "package" covering this and many other perils. LAWRENCE D. JOHNSON INSURANCE Main and Cherry Sts. Phone 342*4181 Representing The Aetna Casualty and Surety Company ot Hartford, Cono* of the world wasn't even in it. Until, in 1957, Japan's Pete Nakamura and Koshi Ono swept the Canada Cup and International trophy competition. Little Pete, an Oriental Gene Sarazen, took individual honors in the race among 34 nations and with Ono teamed to beat Demaret and Sammy Snead in the Canada Cup team championship. Explodes Around World Since, then, golf has exploded around the world. Prior to that time, of course, Britain had its greats in such as Tommy Armour, Henry Cotton and Bobby Locke. The rest of the world was from nowhere when it came to knocking the little white ball into the cup. But look at what's happening lately. Just a year ago, little Gary Player of South Africa won the coveted PGA championship and this time around the leader going into the final round was Australia's Bruce Crampton, even though Jack Nicklaus collared him in the stretch. Yet, Nicklaus on the head end and Arnold Palmer seeking his third straight couldn't capture the British Open. Lefthander Bob Charles of New Zealand outstayed both of them. Then, Bruce Devlin, of Australia took the French Open. Points Up Tempo Further pointing up the international tempo are those Canada Cup matches which will be held at Versailles, France, Oct. 24-27. Go back over the results of this worldwide two-man competition for the last few years and you'll understand the international scope of this humbling game. Last year, Roberto di Vicenzo won individual honors by beating both Snead and Arnold Palmer. He swept it a year earlier but prior to that Flory Van Dnock of Belgium took individual honors, Angel Miguel of Spain was the head man while Ireland won team honors, Stanl Leonard of Canada was top man on the totem pole when Australia took team honors—and Japan set up the whole "we can beat the United States" attitude by pulling off their coup in Tokyo. over the second-place Tigers. The Sox jumped off to a 5-1 lead in the bottom of the first and never trailed. Paul Quigley picked up the victory although he gave up a home run to. the Tigers' Bruce McGriff. Jim Wetherbee was the winning pitcher for the Cubs. Six Cub performers had one hit apiece in the balanced offense. Bob Hoerner of the Braves had a pair of safeties in a losing cause. Tonight, the Athletics and White Sox square off at 5:45, while' the Cardinals meet the Braves at 7:30. Monday night will be American League Farm League Night at O. N. Custer Park. Three games will be on tap. Tlgen (6) Allison.

Rollins was knocked unconscious by a smash off the bat of Hector Lopez which bounced off his left cheekbone and caromed over to second base on a fly. Ho suffered nothing more than a superficial injury and is under observation. He was batting .309 before the game. Rollins suffered a broken jaw last April 7 in an exhibition game at Knoxville. Tenn. He missed only three games but was forced t(. nlay with a wired jaw for a month.
