At least this was the sentiment expressed by major league scouts, league officials, and prominent sportswriters at a luncheon held in Springfield last Satur -J boys who were unable to procure employment. Don't for one minute think that this hasn't becu done in other leagues resembling this one. Locally, the program has had its share of setbacks. The big question at this point is whether Galesburg will support a team of this calibre. And right now, we are at a loss for an answer. Galesburg was given a franchise in this league because of its long and well-earned tradition of being a sports-minded community. However, the Pioneers' record is a not-too-impressive 7-21. Possibly, Galesburg would more heartily support a winning team. More likely, Galesburg will support a team when it feels a closer association with its players. Aftqr all, there are few area performers on the Pioneer squad. This was a hurried program. Although it had been a dream of men such as Shannon for many years, the program itself was formulated within a few months. Possibly, Galesburg was affected by the program's early inauguration more than many of the other cities in the league. ot have all the an- fee! that this day. The luncheon was part of an all-day jamboree for the league. The day's festivities also included three baseball games with all six teams in the loop participating, We could not help but be impressed with the spirit bo hind this league. As Walter Shannon, chief Midwest scout for the Cleveland Indians and one of the founders of the league, emphasized, there are some changes in baseball thzi are beginning to appear in the 1960's. went 35 feet past me pin Boros clubbed his approach and his hall stopped 22 feet short of the flag. Both missed their first putts. This set up a situation in which there could have been a three- way deadlock if each player sank his next putt. Instead, Nicklaus missed and three-putted for his four. Palmer sank his putt for the bogey. Boros, barely 18 inches from the flag, missed and three- putted for a five. This hole wrapped up Palmer's sixth tourney championship of the year. On the 18th he par red, missing a 12-foot birdie putt, but Boros missed his birdie try from seven feet to lose his comeback chance. Tied After 72 Holes The trio tied for first place after the regulation 72 holes with 280, four under par, to set up the playoff. Palmer's victory increased his 1963 t earnings to $96,955. Both Boros and Nicklaus earned $4,450 for the round with Nicklaus increasing his 1963 earnings to $79,590 and Boros to $69,996 to run two-three behind Palmer. The trio contributed their 50 per cent of the day's gate receipts to the Chick Evans caddie fund.

Winless for 13 days as the Dodgers struggled through their worst since early June, Koufax pitched smoothly if not spectacularly, with home run support from Tommy Davis and Willie Davis. The 27-year-old left-hander has a 17-4 record — tied with Juan Marichal of San Francisco for the most victories in the majors. He is No. 1 in strikeouts with 195 in 194 2-3 innings and in complete games with 15 while maintaining a brilliant 1.89 earned run average. San Francisco slipped past idle St. Louis into second place as Willie Mays hammered his second straight game-winning homer and gave the Giants a 5-4 victory over Pittsburgh. In the only other NL game scheduled, Milwaukee's Warren Spahn posted his 340th victory, with homers by Hank Aaron and Lee Maye providing the power, 8-2 over Cincinnati. Kansas City shut out the American League - leading New York Yankees 5-0, Washington knocked off the second - place Chicago White Sox 2-1, Baltimore edged Detroit 2-1, Boston downed Minnesota 7-5 and the Los Angeles Angels walloped Cleveland 11-0. Trailing 3-0 after two innings, the Giants closed the gap to a run on Chuck Hillcr's third-inning homer and took the lead for good when Mays hit his 24th homer with two on in the fifth. The shot by Mays tagged Vern Law, 4-5, with the defeat and gave the victory to reliever Jim Duffalo, 3-0. Spahn, slowed recently because of a sore elbow, picked up his first victory since July 7, checking the Reds on six hits. The 42- year-old left-hander, 13-5, was touched for homers by Vada Pinson and Frank Robinson. John Tsitouris, 7-4, started for Cincinnati and was a loser by the time he had pitched to four batters. With one out Tsitouris walked Ed Mathews and Aaron and May* followed with consecutive homers.

They have already lost 22, That ties the record established by Pittsburgh in 1890, during the administration of Benjamin Harrison.
