(AP)-Speedy Scot won the Hambletonian as expected, but it was unsung Florlis who made the premier race for 3-year-old trotters a historic one.

Florlis, winner of only one trot in Scrappers to Play Jaycees f Sunday Night Galesburg Bill's Scrappers and the Galesburg Junior Chamber of Commerce will play a softball game Sunday at 8 p.m. in 0. N. Custer Park. Manager Bill Costello's girls team dropped the encounter with the Jaycees men's team last year and will be seeking revenge in this Sunday's game. This is the last game of the season for the Scrappers, who started out strong, but have dropped some close decisions in recent games. The Scrappers will organize a bowling team after the softball season is cleared away. The game against the Jaycees is billed as a benefit for the Scrappers annual team banquet. A free-will offering will be collected at the game. eight starts this season, stunned the 23,000 fans in the stands by taking the first mile by a head over Speedy Scot in 1:57 3-5. It was the fastest mile by a 3-year-old trotter in history, whether in a race or against the stopwatch. Into the dust of the Du Quoin clay mile oval went the Hamble­ tonian record of 1:58 2-5 by Harlan Dean in 1961 and the world competitive mark for 3-year-old trotters of 1:58 1-5 by Caleb at Lexington, Ky. in 1961. In the second heat, Speedy Scot defeated Florlis and his 60-year- old driver, Harry Pownall, by three-fourths of a length in 1:58. In the third and decisive mile, the two colts again battled through Rain Forces Warriors to Sidelines The contest between the Galesburg Warriors and Milan scheduled for Wednesday night at Milan was cancelled because of rain.

It was the 47-year-old Ralph Baldwin's first Hambletonian triumph in 13 attempts. And the combined winning time of the three heats of 5 minutes, 54 seconds was the fastest on record for a divided three-heat harness race, regardless of gait or age. Speedy Scot, owned by Castleton Farm of Lexington, Ky., boosted his career record to 20 victories in 26 starts. With the $56,619 top prize, he swelled his earnings to $238,710.

But they're not giving up the ship yet. Coach Bob Kniss, beginning his third year as head football coach here, has ten re* turning lettermen and a good crop of linemen returning from last year's team. Co-captains George Pica and Roger Smith are joined by Harry Byrd, Bill Darmer, Rod Denisar, Mike Weathers, Leon Hall, John Lewis, Dean Tate, and Dennis Poland to form the list of veterans o this year's squad. Pica, Darmer, Denisar, and Weathers were all regular linemen on last year's Commando team which tied for fourth place in the Little Six Conference. Co-captain Smith, a halfback, is the only returning monogram winner in the backfield, and he wasn't a regular last fall. However, Kniss is counting on seniors Brent Stanley, Harold Sparks and Bfll Butler in addition Wants Tiger To Defend Ring Title NEW YORK (UPD — A $10,' 000 escrow check today promised a $100,000 purse for Nigerian Dick Tiger if he defends his middleweight title this year or next against Joey Giardello of Philadelphia. first must de- nailed down, but Stanley, Sparks and Butterfield are waging a real battle for the starting nod at the other half.

Front-line substitutes will include junior Ed Schenck at end or tackle, sophomore Larry Lomax at center, and a pair of sophomore brothers, Bob and Fred Lewis, who operate from the quarterback and end posts, respectively. In what Coach Kniss sees as a balanced conference with Knoxville having the edge, the Commandos, relying heavily on a strong line to pull them through, should make things tough on Little Six foes. 1963 Sch«duU Sept. 13—Sherrard at Sherrard.

(UPD-Speedy Scot may have won the Hamble­ tonian, but his driver, Ralph Baldwin, got the kiss for victory. A personality fault kept Speedy Scot from getting a similar reward. "I would have kissed him," Mrs. Jeanette Baldwin said, "but he bites." Instead, she kissed her husband, who admitted that the win came despite a superstition that he might be unlucky in his 13th try for harness racing's top trotting prize. "I was a little worried about it being the 13th after we got beat in that first heat," sandy-haired Baldwin said. "After that I spent the whole afternoon sweating this thing out."

"I knew this colt was big and strong, though, and I thought he could take anyone in the stretch, lif he didn't break." Speedy Scot had gone off stride in five of his six previous races this year, but had come from behind despite the costly fault to win four of these. In the fifth, lie broke twice and finished sixth.

Baldwin said that Speedy Scot also would trot in the Kentucky Futurity at Lexington, Ky., Oct. 4 in an effort to become the second horse ever to capture harness racing's triple crown of the Yonkers Futurity, the Hamble­ tonian, and the Kentucky. The only other horse to capture all three was Scott Frost in 1955. "This is the greatest horse I've ever seen," Baldwin said. said that he INTERNATIONAL LEAGUE Jacksonville 2-1, Indianapolis A.
