Locals Fall to Northbrook SCOUTS from several major league clubs were on hand for the Illinois State Legion baseball tournament at Canton Thursday afternoon. Shown above (!-r) checking lineups are Jim Beltz (kneeling) of the Cardinals, Bob Zientara of the Indians, Chuck Koney of the Red Sox, Guy Wellman of the Dodgers, Vcrn Hoscheit of the Orioles, and Nick Kanzic of the Angels (kneeling.) CANTON — Galesburg's American Legion squad failed to ring the midnight bell for Northbrook, the state tournament's "Cinderella" team, as it dropped a 4-0 verdict to the suburban Chicago team here yesterday evening. With that opening defeat, the defending state champs were to battle Lake Forrest, losers to Edwardsville yesterday afternoon, at 2:30 this afternoon. If Galesburg should win this afternoon's affair, it would play at 2:30 Saturday afternoon. Jeff Browne, Northbrook pitcher, had things pretty well under control In limiting the Galesburg squad to one hit. He struck out 11 and walked four. Five of his strikeouts came on called third strikes. Frank Dexter, Galesburg cen- terfielder, ruined Browne's bid for a no-hitter by punching a single to right in the second inning. It was in the second that Galesbutg had its only serious scoring opportunity of the game. In that frame, Mike Davis walked with two outs, and Dex< ter followed with a single to right, Dexter moved to second as the rightfielder unsuccessfully tried to throw out Davis going into third. However, Browne whiffed Don Sundqulst to end the inning. The locals placed men en first and second la both the third and the seventh la* nlags, but that was just about the full extent of their offensive. Northbrook tallied four unearned runs in the first inning. Dick Baldwin and Earl Bromstedt reached base on errors to place runi.ers on first and third. Mike Kreusch drove a sacrifice fly to centerfield to bring home Baldwin. Dal Mackie's single to leftfield brought about one of the more unique plays of the summer.

JiSil Q LIQUORAMA 2130 GRAND AVENUE COLDEST FaceBloomington Tonight LINCOLN— Tim Thompson, who has been pretty- stingy with base hits lately, tossed a two-hitter at the Lincoln Collegiates to spark a 4-1 Galesburg victory here Thursday night. The Galesburg lefthander, who fired a one-hitter against Bloomington in his last pitching performance, struck out 10 men in his route-going effort yesterday. The victory for the locals was their eighth in their last 10 outings and their sixth triumph over Lincoln this summer. They will play at Bloomington tonight before returning home for a doubleheader against Springfield Saturday. Galesburg didn't wait long to get into the scoring column last night. With one out, Dennis Doyle singled and moved to sec­ ond when Lincoln hurler Wayne Howard attempted to pick him off of first base and threw wildly. With two outs, Larry Johnson slapped a single to score Doyle. Ricco Zuccaro and Jim Pace walked with two outs in the bottom of the second, and Zuccaro scored moments later on a single by Gerry Chmiewlewski. In the fourth, Porky Brooks, Galesburg centerfielder, was safe on an error by rightfielder Jim Dimitri. Johnson reached base on a fielder's choice, and Tom Simon followed with a single to score Brooks from second base. Dewey Kalmer then singled to bring home Johnson. Galesburg's final tally came in the sixth frame. Johnson walked, and Simon sacrificed him to second. Bob Bigley grounded to shortstop Jimmy Dodd, who threw Johnson out at third. Den nis Huffman, returning to action after being out for two weeks with an injury, singled to send Bigley to third. Kalmer doubled to drive in Bigley with the fourth Pioneer marker of the evening.

Earl Weinstock doubled, and he rode home on Don Ohlmeyer's two-bagger. Galesburg's pitcher Chuck Schnacht was not as sharp as he has been on occasion, but he was victimized by shabby fielding by his teammates. The lefthander gave up six hits, striking out four and walking one. Van .Smith was expected to draw the pitching assignment for this afternoon's game with Lake Forrest. Galesburg must now win four contests in succession to successfully defend its state crown.
