Pat Richter Enters Camp Of Redskins By United Press International The wonderful world of Pat Richter opened for Bill McPeak today and the Washington Redskins coach envisioned a deadly duo that combines the pass-catching talents of the Wisconsin All- America and veteran flanker back Bobby Mitchell. . Richter was the nation's 13th leading pass catcher last season, hauling in 38 passes for 531 yards and five Wisconsin touchdowns. Mitchell was the top receiver in the National Football League last year with 1,384 yards on 72 catches. The Redskins trimmed their roster by asking waivers on free agent Bob Dewald, a halfback from Pittsburgh. Glynn Griffing and Louis Guy, University of Mississippi teammates who joined Richter in helping the college All-Stars defeat the Green Bay Packers last Friday night, reported to the New York Giants training camp. They will have to catch up with the three weeks of training lost because of All-Star practice and will miss Saturday's first exhibition game with the Chicago Bears at Ithaca, N.Y. Baker May See Action Ail-American Terry Baker of Oregon State, who sat out the All-Star game, probably will see action as Roman Gabriel's relief quarterback for Los Angeles when the Rams meet the Dallas Cowboys in the NFL pre-season opener Thursday night at Los Angeles. The Detroit Lions, prepping for Saturday's game with the Cleveland Browns, hoped flanker back Terry Barr's injured knee would respond to treatment and have him in action for their exhibition inaugural. The Baltimore Colts axed four rookies in the first cut made by coach Don Shula. They were tackles Andrew Rice and Winston Hill of Texas Southern, Tony Hennessey of North Carolina and Wayne Everhart of Appalachian State. Shula may slice the roster further before Saturday's game with the Philadelphia Eagles. Green Bay's champion Packers, anxious to take their All- Star loss out on the Pittsburgh Steelers in Miami, Fla., this Saturday, were heartened by the re" turn of linebacker Ray Nitsche. Nitschke watched the collegiate action on television from a hospital bed where he was recovering from a back injury. Chiefs Welcome All-Stars The Kansas City Chiefs, defending champions in the American Football League, also welcomed three All-Stars—linebacker Bobby Bell of Minnesota; tackle Junious Buchanan of Grambling (La)., and guard Ed Budde of Michigan — for Friday's first home appearance agaiast the Buffalo Bills. Elsewhere: The New York Jets cut fullback Jim Christy, tackle Clarence Gadsden, defensive back Bob Smith, defensive end Jim Toon and halfback Bob Lisa .. .Pittsburgh handed pink slips to ends John Kuprok, Don Coffey and Bob Dickerson and linebacker Harold Gray.. .The Denver Broncos practiced offensive tactics to improve on their 27-10 exhibition win over Houston...Cleveland cut its workouts to one a day and polished patterns for the game against Detroit. Golesburg Register-Moil, Ga.lesbuffl, III. Tuesday, Auo. 6. 1963 ,..UL Galesburg Sets for Title Defense Jj^jjj Playl Northbrook In First Contest 1963 AMERICAN LEGION STATE TOURNAMENT AUGUST 8-9.10-11 — CANTON, ILLINOIS Konkoket (4th Ply.) Can Galesburg's American Legion squad successfully defend the state championship that it won last year? Local supporters who have discussed the possibil ity of such a feat will have their answer this weekend' after the state finals at Canton. Coach Sam Andree's charges have reached the double-elimination finaL after copping district and division honors. They will bat tie a strong Northbrook squad (25-4) in the opening'round, Thurs day, at 5:30 p.m. Galesburg started out toe season on a sour note with several losses in early contests. Chances for a repeat performance of last year's squad seemed remote in June, but with improved play, they have become considerably brighter in August. Strong pitching has been the backbone of the legion success Two lefthanders and two right­ handers form the core of the pitching staff. Lefties Chuck Schacht and Van Smith along with righthanders Bob Darrah and 6ob Scott form the "Big Four" for the local crew. Schacht Will probably get ihe nod against Northbrook on Thurs day. Early setbacks during the regular season could be largely attributed to the great amount of experimenting which Andree conducted before forming a regular combination for the tournament. However, the starting team seems to be fairly well established now. One of the more pleasant surprises for Andree has been the work of big Dan Stewart behind the plate. Stewart, who began the year as a utility infielder and a part-time outfielder, has EdwordtvilU (5th Div.) Gome No. 1 Thurs. 1:30 Yesterday's Stars By The Associated Press HITTING—Carl Warwick, Houston, singled in winning run with two out in the ninth in the Colts' 6-5 edge over San Francisco. PITCHING - Hal Woodeshick, Houston, struck out four in two innings of relief and gained credit for ninth victory in the Colts' 6-5 decision over San Francisco. The NEW IDEA in smoking Mantle Is Set to See Limited Duty NEW YORK (AP) — Mickey Mantle was ready for limited duty today as the New York Yankees hit the road for a 14-game trip, but the $100,000-a-year slugger is still ailing and still faces the possibility of post-season surgery. Before he and the Yanks set out on the trip that will take them to Washington, Los Angeles, Chicago and Boston, Mantle was asked if he thought surgery would be necessary on his ailing left knee. Mickey hesitated a moment, then replied: "I don't know. It might. I just don't know." The Yankee slugger has been out of action since breaking a bone in his left foot in Baltimore June 5. It was later discovered that the three-time Most Valuable Player had a loose cartilage in his left knee, the cause of his current trouble and the possible target of post-season surgery. He had missed 61 games before returning as a pinch hitter against Baltimore Sunday night. He cracked a dramatic, game-tying homer in his first appearance and was accorded, he said, the greatest ovatidn of his career. The oft-injured star said he isn't yet ready for a full-time return to duty. Distributed by BROWN SPECIALTY CO, LL Cardinals Cop Tourney Galesburg's Little League Cardinals walked off with championship honors in the Altona Little League Tournament which ended Sunday. The Cardinals beat Bishop Hill in the finals, 27-0, vith Mike Duffy and Larry Peck combining to pitch no-hit ball. Duffy, who worked the first three innings, was the winner. Eddie Barragan had four for four to lead the winner's attack. Northbrook (lit Div.) also done some pitching. But his solid frame and excellent throwing arm have made him a standout catcher. Veteran Carl Swanson gets the nod at first base, with second baseman Mike Davis, shortstop Loke Forrest (2nd DlV.) Pat Prtna, and third baseman Ken Rodgers rounding out the infield. Leftfielder Don Sundquist, cen- terfielder Frank Dexter, and rightfielder Larry Pickrel, a converted catcher, make up the starting outfield. Pre-season prognostications had this year's legion squad pegged 1 as a lighter hitting outfit than last season's state champs were. For the most part, these predic- Loser No. 1 tions have proven to be accurate. However, Andree feels that this year's squad has better over-all speed. The Galesburg squad has proven that it can take advantage of any opportunity that arises. And, if the opportunities are there this weekend, there's no telling how far the local team can go.

"I hope to reach 17 feet, four inches, or maybe even 17 feet, six inches by Olympic, time next year," he said. Penrel busted his own world record Monday with a vault of 16 feet, KM inches, which helped carry the United States Men's track and field team to a 120-91 victory over Britain in a dual meet. It was the fourth victory I tempts at w-lOVt. the 22-year-old without defeat for the Yanks on Northeast Louisiana State student their European tour. However, the U.S. women, given a chance to win their first meet of the tour, fell apart on the final day against England and lost, 65i /2 -51^. The British 440- yard relay team set a women's world record of 45.2 seconds. Pennel extended the drama of his record attempt until his final jump before a receptive crowd of 30,000 in White City Stadium. After failing on his first two at- cleared the bar on his third try. He then missed three attempts at 17 feet, VA. inch. Pennei's old mark of 16-8 :, /4 was set here July 13 and equalled by him at Warsaw on July 26. The U.S. men won six of the 10 events on the final day's program for a total of 13 in the two-day meet. An outstanding effort was turned in by Henry Carr of Arizona State University, who established a stadium record of 20.9 seconds in winning the 220-yard-run. Other ' Yank successes were turned in by Rex Cawley of Southern California in the 440-yard hurdles (51.4); Morgan Groth of Oregon State in the 880-vard run; Frank Covelli of Arizona State U. in the javelin (251 feet, Wh inches); and by the 1600-yard relay team (3:07.2). The lone U.S. women's victory on the final day was recorded by Sharon Shepherd of Cleveland in the discus. England in Finals of Davis Cup WIMBLEDON, England (UPI) — England, soaring to its greatest tennis heights in 30 years, will meet the winner of the U.S.­ Mexico series in the inter-zone finals of the Davis Cup. Mike Sangster, a hard-hitting veteran of several seasons on the international tour, proved a timely hero for Britain when he out- duelled Ulf Schmidt of Sweden, 7-5, 6-2, 9-11, 3-6, 6-3, Monday in the deciding match of the European Zone finals. The decision gave Britain a 3-2 victory in the series with Sweden and moved it into the inter-zone finals for the first time since 1933. The United States and Mexico will meet later this month for the right to play England. Rain Cancels LL Activity Rain caused the cancellation of tonight's Little League activity at O. N. Custer Park. Two all-star contests for 10, 11 and 12-year-olds were slated for tonight. They will be played Friday night. Wednesday night, weather permitting, two 9-year-old all-star games are on tap. Dartmouth Wins 1st in Big Race DETROIT (UPI) — Dartmouth won the $13,275 Grand Circuit feature race at the Wolverine Harness Raceway Monday night with a time of 2:06.3 over the one mile trot.

Hamms' Pitcher Has Yet to Championship 7 in ROCK ISLAND (Special)~Only one major achievement remains for Dick Brubaker in International Softball Congress World Tournament competition. That would be pitching Hamm's Beer of Rock Island to the world championship. The lanky hurler, a native of Hooppole, has won every individual honor open to a world tournament player. He has been named to the All-American squad twice in three tournaments, won the tourney batting title in 1959 and shared the leading pitcher award with defending world champion El Paso, Tex., lefty Ken Wycoff last year. So when the 17th annual ISC World Tournament opens Aug. 24 (it closes on Labor Day) at Rock Island's Douglas Park, Brubaker's only thought will be focused on the world title. A field of at least 20 teams from inside and outside the continental United States will compete for the championship in this softball spectacular. In the 1959 tournament at Long Beach, Calif., Brubaker pitched in five games. He spun one no- hitter, shut out another team on one hit, and had a 1-0 lead in the sixth inning of another game before going »ut in favor of a relief pitcher. He also was touched for both Hamm's losses. Both were 1-0 setbacks in which he allowed a total of five hits. His blazing bat won the tournament hitting crown as Hamm's finished in third place. Last year Brubaker pitched and won four world tournament games as Hamm's finished sec ond to El Paso, losing the crown on a 1-0 heartbreaker behind pitcher Bob Naab. Brubaker hurled 35 1/3 innings on a yield of only three runs and wound up his tournament stint with a string of 18 consecutive scoreless innings, and thus established an all-time ISC record. So in his last two tournaments, tlie 29-year-old graduate of Cornell College in Mount Vernon, Iowa (he was an all-Midwest Conference selection in basketball there) has allowed five earned runs in 68 1/3 innings, an earned- run average of .073. And just for good measure, he batted at a .375 clip in last year's world meet. The hitting crown was won by Hamm's centerfield- er Jim Aversing with an average of .440. Last year's tournament at Rock Island drew a record- smashing 40,000 fans. Tickets are one sale now at World Tournament headquarters in Rock Island's Fort Armstrong Hotel. Tickets will also be available at LeGrande's Service Station in Galesburg. Record Entry STOCKHOLM (AP) — A record 35 nations, including the United States and Russia, have entered the world weightlifting championships in Stockholm Sept. 7-13. Must Show Registration Decals SPRINGFIELD - William T. Lodge, state director of conservation, today announced that a re cently signed amendment to the Boat Registration and Safety Act makes mandatory the display of the registration expiration decals which the department has been issuing on all new registrations and renewal registrations. During 1963, this will apply only to boats which are issued certificates with a 1966 expiration date, Lodge said. The policy in the past has been that the display of tlie decals was optional with the boat owner. Should a decal become lost, J destroyed or mutilated, the owner of a motorboat shall replace it by making application to the department in writing, giving hrs name, address, and the number of his boat. The fee for the replacement of a decal is $1. There are in excess of 30,000 boats, originally registered in 1960, on which the Certificates of Number have expired. If these boats are operated without a valid Certificate of Number and a registration expiration decal, the boat owner is subject to a fine. Palmer Nears $100,000 In Winnings DUNEDIN, Fla. (UPD-Arnold Palmer is within putting distance of becoming golf's first $100,000 player: Unofficial standings released Monday by the Professional Golfers' Association show that Palmer has earned $96,995 in sanctioned tournament play this year. Jack Nicklaus, the power-hitting youngster who is threatening Palmer's position as golf's top pro, is second in earnings with $79,590. Palmer, Nicklaus and most of the other members of the top 10 passed up last weekend's St. Paul Open, which was won by Jack Rule Jr. Bruce Crampton of Australia finished in a third place tie at St. Paul to move into seventh place on the money list with $28,671.49. Julius Boros retained his third place position with $69,996.67, followed by Tony Lema ($62,513.01), Gary Player ($48,755) and Dow Finsterwald ($42,813.51). Completing the first 10 are Gene Littler ($28,219.16), Tommy Aaron ($24,334.30) and Paul Harney ($21,793.34). Statistics GRAHAM, N.C. (AP )-The fact she is 6 feet, 2 inches tall isn't the only thing that will distinguish Miss North Carolina at the MisS America Pageant. Jeanne Swanner, 19, probably will be the only entry who can boast a 37-point basketball scof* ing average. The tall and lovely Tar Heel beauty put the high scoring aver* age together in leading the Gra* ham High School team to the Eastern 3-A Conference crown during the 1960-61 season. There will be no talk of frail femininity if this girl becomes Miss America. She's a Red Cross water safety instructor, a lifeguard, plays a good tennis game and holds an associate umpire's certificate for softball. Despite this, she's sweet and feminine. The talent which helped her win the Tar Heel beauty crown has nothing to do with muscles—it was her ukulele-strumming and singing. But' it's in basketball that she has shined. She already stood 6 feet 2 when she was a freshman at Graham High—a basketball natural. She quickly won a starter's berth and averaged 20 points that first school year. In her sophomore year her average rose to 30 points a season. Opposing teams began assigning two girls to guard her. Graham reached the finals of the conference tournament—and lost. Next year the tall beauty tossed points left and right. Graham had an 18-1 record and Jeanne was top scorer with her 37-point average. Three times she scored 49 points. In tournament play she scored 44 points twice, once in the championship game. "My favorite shots were a lay- up and a modified hook shot," says Jeanne. "You couldn't really call it a hook. It was just something I worked on myself." Jeanne played basketball for her sorority team the past two years at Auburn University. There were 13 teams in the league and she was selected on the all-star squad both years. Her sorority team won the championship both years. Says- (Continued from page 14) THE ETERNAL FEMALE—The first thing 15-year-old Sue Pitts did after becoming the new world's champion of the 210-meter butterfly was to grab a compact and touch up make-up and hair. The high school sophomore from West Orange, N.J., took the title from Sharon Finnerman of Los Angeles with a time of 2:29.1 in the Eastern swimming aud diving championships at Kelly pool in Philadelphia. the WBA meetings and the council meetings will do," he said. "But I can remind you. that both organizations could withdraw recognition of a champion or membership of a state commission or a territorial commission for failure to live up to the rules." The WBA membership includes commissions mostly in the Americas, the Philippines, Japan and the Orient; but the World Boxing Council is made up by representatives of the WBA. the British Boxing Board of Control and the European Boxing Union. Markson, who has been managing director of garden boxing since 1948, promotes or acts as producing agent for approximately 50 nationally televised fight- shows a year. In addition, he spends approximately $100,000 a year helping small fight clubs in various cities.
