12 Galesburg RegisterMaif, Galesburg. Ill> Saturday, Aug.10, 1963 Smith Pitches No-Hitter in Tournament Van: Team Gave Him Support CANTON — "I had real good support," said Galesburg American Legion left­ hander Van Smith, who had just tossed a no-hitter against Lake Forest in the finals of the state tournament here, Friday afternoon. Smith's effort kept Galesburg in contention for the state crown after the defending state champs had lost to Northbrook, Thursday, in the double-elimination affair. Lake Forest's lone tally came in the fourth inning thanks to two Galesburg errors. But, aside from that shaky inning, Galesburg's ficldfrig Was close to impeccable. Smith, who Was aware after the third inning • that he had a nd- hitter going, said his fast ball was hoppnig, but 1 it was his success with his curve ball that pleased him the most. "It's the best my curve has worked in a month," related Smith. *' I think it's because I have been pitching a lot this week." It was a curve ball that Smith threw to Mark Weshinskey to get the Lake Forest hitter to ground out for the final out of the contest. "I threw him a curve to try to get him to hit to the opposite field. I wanted him to hit away from his power," the slick southpaw said. Weshinskey didn't cooperate completely. A left-handed batter, he pulled the ball and grounded to second baseman Mike Davis. Davis scooped the ball up and flipped it to first sacker Carl Swansoh. The game .was history. London, Clay Fight LONDON (UPI) — Brian London's manager, Al Phillips, says that he has agreed to terms for a bout against Cassius Clay of Louisville, Ky., the No. 1 conten der; for' the' world heavyweight crown. "Through my agent in America I have agreed to terms for London to fight Clay for pro moter George Parnassus in Los Angeles some time in Septem ber," Phillips said. Masterpiece Keeps Locals In Contention in Finals Babe Ruth Tourney in Semi-Finals First round play in the Babe Ruth League Tournament was completed Friday night at H. T. Custer Park as Knights of Columbus defeated Hinchliff-Pearson 64 and Gale Ward won over Davis Store on a forfeit. The Police Department was to play Monmouth this afternoon at 3 p.m. on the H. T. Custer Park diamond. The winner will meet CB&Q. Roadmen at 1:30 p.m. Sunday and the K of C's will battle Gale Ward at 3 in the semifinals. The championship game is scheduled for 7:30 Sunday night. Take 2-1 Victory CANTON—Galesburg rebounded from a first round loss in spectacular fashion here Friday afternoon, defeating Lake Forest 2-1 behind the no-hit pitching of lefty Van Smith. This near flawless mound performance kept Manager Sam Andree's charges alive in the battle for American Legion state baseball honors. The defending champions lost their first game to Northbrook, 4-0, the day before. It was the second state tournament loss for Lake Forest and eliminated the Fifth Division entry. Smith walked only one, the first man at bat in the game and set Lake Forest down in order in every inning except the first and fourth.

(AP) — Springfield, 111., has won its first-round game in the Connie Mack Great Plains Baseball Tournament, beating Casper, Wyo., Friday, 9-6.

Gene Fullmer Will Try to Regain Title from Tiger IBADAN, Nigeria (UPI) —Bull- shouldered, Bible-reading Gene Fullmer, a brawny mink-rancher of West Jordan, Utih, will try to recapture the world middleweight crown from stocky, fast-fisted Dick Tiger of Nigeria tonight in their third title fight. And in case Fullmer, 32, does defeat the idolized Tiger, the Nigerian government will have a force of 1,750 soldiers and police ready to protect Gene, if necessary, from the expected sellout crowd of 45,000 in the new outdoor Liberty Stadium. However, Tiger is favored at 4-1 to keep his 160-pound crown ATTENTION! Home Owners With Mueller Hiif Climotrol Heating Equipment WHOLE-HOME AIR CONDITIONING added to your warm air system SEE YOUR DEALER TODAY Distributed by WILUS STEEL CORP. in their scheduled 15-round fight. And if England's Jack Hart, the referee and only ring official, decides that 33-year-old Tiger is the winner, no trouble is expected. A sellout gate would approximate $280,000. Among the various starting times that have been given out for the fight, the newest and perhaps the likeliest was 7 p.m. (2 p.m. EDT). Intermittent rains for nearly a week threatened until Friday afternoon another delay of this bout, which already was postponed twice because of a stone-bruise on the ball of Fullmer's left foot. The previous dates were July 13 and July 27. The Nigerian government, us­ ing this match to boost the country's prestige, has guaranteed $182,000 to promoter Jack Solom ons of London. He, in turn, guar anteed Tiger $100,000 and Fullmer, $60,000. Tiger, took the 160-pound cr6wn from Fullmer on a decision at San Francisco, Calif., last Oct 23. But in their return fight at Las Vegas, Nev., last Feb. 23, Tiger kept the title but had to be satisfied with a draw. Fullmer seeks his 55th victory and 25th knockout in 62 bouts. Tiger wants his 48th win and 22nd kayo in 63 starts. Fullmer was stopped once, by Sugar Ray Rob inson. Tiger never was halted. READ THE CLASSIFIEDS!

Strikes Out 6 The Galesburg southpaw fanned six, keeping opposing batters off balance with a trcky curve and live fast ball. He struck out the side In the sixth. Galesburg was scheduled to go against Edwardsville this afternoon at 2 o'clock with the winner of this game to play Kankakee at 8 tonight. Kankakee lost to Northbrook 11-1 last night. To win the championship, Galesburg, which must keep winning to stay in the running, must make it five straight victories. Manager Andree was not on the playing field when the game finished, having been dismissed early by plate umpire Dewayne Gailliert. Sam was ejected at the end of the sixth inning for vigorously protesting calls. Galesburg scored both of its runs in the first inning when third baseman Randy Welch led off by singling to left center, advanced to second on a sacrifice by shortstop Pat Prina and came home on a double by right fielder Larry Pickrel. Pickrel then stole third and came home on a throwing error by catcher Tim Feemster. After that Lake Forest pitcher Dave Kreischer settled down and fanned Dan Stewart and Frank Dexter to end the inning. Gets Tougher From then on Kreischer also proved stingy, holding Galesburg hitless until leaving the game for a pinch-hitter in the top of the fifth. Bud Murray pitched the last two innings for Lake Forest, giving up a single to Pickrel, his second hit of the day, in the sixth. Tension mounted in the top of the seventh as all three Lake Forest batters got wood on the ball. However "Smity" got the first two on fly outs and the last batter on a grounder to the second baseman.

Pioneers and Bobcats Battle to 2-2 Stalemate BLOOMINGTON — John Hermanek's fine pitching went for naught here, Friday night, as Bloomington and Galesburg battled to a 2-2 standoff. The Pioneer righthander fanned 11 and walked only- two in an eight -inning pitching performance. He gave up only five hits. Galesburg was scheduled to host Springfield in a doubleheader this afternoon, and the locals will travel to Peoria for a twinbill tomorrow afternoon. The tie has been ruled as a completed contest by league officials. They said that there would be no time to continue the game. Bloomington broke the ice in the first when Bill Solff singled home Monty McBryde, who had doubled in front of him. Galesburg went ahead in the fourth when Porky Brooks walked and tallied on Larry Johnson's triple to left center, Johnson scored on the play when shortstop Doug Rader's, relay throw to third was off target. Bloomington knotted the count in the bottom of the sixth. Rader, leading off, was safe on Johnson's error. Tim Murtaugh laid down a sacrifice bunt and reached first safely when Hermanek threw the ball into rightfield. Rader moved to third on the play. Tom Steward struck out and Angie Vallejo popped out to shart center. Dennis DellaPina, acting as a courtesy runner for Murtaugh, _ intentionally got himself caught between first and second. Rader broke for the plate, and Dennis Doyle's throw clearly had him out. However, Galesburg catcher Dewey Kalmer dropped the ball allowing Rader to score. Bloomington had runners on first and second in the bottom of the eighth but was unable to score.
