T 1 O 1 1 TWT#11 Tl • • 1 O Local schools Will Begin Grid seasons Galesburg Will Host Richwoods Knights By JOE MORRISSEY Galesburg's Silver Streaks, determined to bounce back from a losing record last fall, will be out to prove their mettle Saturday night as football opens at Lombard Field. "I believe were arc ready," coach C. C. Van Dyke said on the eve of the big battle, "but we need that test under fire to find out for sure where we stand.'" The Streaks couldn't ask for a much better test than the invading Richwoods Knights, I 1 I i n i Conference champions. Richwoods suffered some from graduation but they have a number of veterans back and are expected to be one of the teams to beat again this fall. Tomorrow night's action should prove interesting, in fact Van Dyke says it could be one of the "best games of the prep season." Bob Baietto, Richwoods coach, is concerned about the lack of size in the line this fall, but it may be that he was spoiled last year. The 1962 Knights had exceptional size. Baretto does freely admit, however, thaf they have excellent speed in the forward wall and states that he is banking on their great mobility to offset any size disadvantage they might have. The Knights also figure to have added speed in the backfield this fall with Lance Carmen and Bill Zicrkc, two of the fastest prcpsters in this area, holding down the regular halfback spots. "We thought we had fast halfbacks last year," Baietto said, "but these kids can really go." In addition to-winning'the.-Var­ sity conference championship last GHS-Richwoods Ducats on Sale General admission (adult and student) tickets for the Galesburg- Richwoods high school football game here Saturday night (Sept. 14) are on sale at LeGrand's Service Station (Publfc Square) until 6 o'clock on the day of the game. Those who purchase their tickets in advance are to enter Lombard Field by way of the southwest gate. Tickets also will be on sale at 7 p.m. at Lombard Field the evening of the game. Set Archery Show at Lakelawn ; 'Jack Whitman, president of the Illinois Archery Association and one of the world's foremost wheelchair archers, will give a shooting exhibition Sunday afternoon at Lakelawn. •Whitman, a Galesburg High School graduate and former resident of Cameron, will give his Archery exhibition along with Bill Tutt, professional archer, formerly of Galesburg. ..'•In addition to being one of the best among wheelchair performers, Whitman is also capable of holding his own in the open class. Whitman will ask for a donation to the U. S. Wheelchair Sports fund. Sunday's archery exhibition will get under way at 2:30. The public is invited. fall, Richwoods grabbed honors in the sophomore drvision. This gives the Knights a host of title- minded juniors battling for berths this fall" Fullback Danny Stewart is a key man in Galesburg's attack this season. Sidelined early last fall by a knee injury, the hard- running Streak back, appears to be ready to go at top speed this year. But Van Dyke calls overall team speed and improved depth as major reasons the Streaks could be tough to handle. He also points out that the spirit is good with an abundance of desire. Galesburg, who has 16 returning lcttcrmcn in a 57-man varsity squad this fall, has experienced players at most positions and the manpower to back them up, GIIS also had one of its best sophomore teams last fall, with one of its two losses coming at the hands of Richwoods. Probable starters in the line for the Streaks will be ends Larry Stinson and Mike Davis, tackles Barry Schumann and John Holmes, guards Don Maze and Gene Dcnisar, and center Larry Foster. The backficld will be made up of quarterback Jim Conner, halfbacks Fritz Menkc and Terry Autman, and fullback Stewart. Don Johnson will sec front line duty as a defensive halfback. Kickoff time is 8 p.m. fci 'si'';?«S Friars Hit Road For '63 Debut Against RMA A relatively untested Corpus Christi Football squad will open its 1963 season against RMA at Aledo Saturday night. Game time is 7:30. RMA has five returning starters from last year's team which sustained a 13-12 setback at the hands of the Friars. ii J 11 ' m STREAK COACHES—Coaches working with the Galesburg High School Varsity team are pictured above. Shown from left are C. C. Van Dyke, head coach; Ted Mansager, varsity line coach; George Lundcen, assistant varsity coach, and Rex Avery, practice teacher. Avery, a student at Western Illinois University, is working with the Galesburg football staff. The Streaks open at home Saturday night when they are host to the Richwoods Knights at Lombard Field. However, Corpus Christi has only four returning lettermen—two of them regulars last year — listed on its 1963 roster. Quarterback Pat Prina and tackle Mike Hanrahan were both in the Friar lineup last fall when they stopped RMA. Joining Prina and Hanrahan in the starting lineup this year will be ends Jim Kennedy and Dick Reavy, tackle Craig Wilkie, cen- Panthers Aim for Better Record 12 Vets Should Help Cause galesburg Register -Mail GALESBURG, ILL., FRIDAY, SEPT. 13, 1963 PAGE 14 iOn the Rebounds Can Hawks' Zelmo Beaty Be Another Bob Pettit? By JOE MORRISSEY Sports Editor Zelmo Beaty, the relatively unknown Big Z from Prairie View A & M College, is raising more than a few eyebrows in the rugged National Basketball Association, and many are now predicting that he will be another Bob Pettit for the St. Louis Hawks. The way Beaty progressed in his first season as a pro eager he could well be the club's next big scorer. At any rate Galesburg and area fans will have a chance to judge for themselves when the Hawks battle the Cincinnati Royals Sept. 27 at the Galesburg Senior High School gym. Bui this won't be the first lime that Beaty has played in Galesburg. Most people remember that he was here when the Hawks beat the Boston Celtics in a preseason game last fall at the Streak gym. However, how many remember that the huge eager played at Memorial gym several years ago when Prairie View competed in the NCAA College Division Tournament? Booming Beaty as another Pettit is in no way implying that Big Bob, St. Louis' bread and butter man for several years, is on the way out. To the contrary, the Hawks feel, and sincerely hope, thai lie has a number of productive seasons left. Pettit is good for 30 or more points almost every game, but with the offensive pace such as it is in the pro circuit, tho bomber from Baton Rouge needs help. Tliis is where young Beaty figures to come in. Zelmo's record last year was much better than average for a rookie season. However, the promising part is the way he progressed toward the end of the season. He is recognized as an excellent rebound- cr — as well as a fine scorer. Beaty, Pettit and their teammates should find the going rough Sept. 27 at the GHS gym when they face tho inconquerable Oscar (Big 0) Robertson and company. Oscar, making his first appearance m Galesburg, leads the Royals in every department and is rated by most observers as one of the greatest basketball players of all time. He was a three-time Ail-American with Cincinnati University. Tickets for this big pre-season pro basketball game arc on sale at LeGrand's Service Station and the American Legion Home. The Ralph M. Noble Post is sponsoring ROSEVILLE - This should be a "challenging" year for Rose ville High School football players As individuals, they face the "challenge system" which Coach Ron McCready has instituted. As team members, they face the challenge of improving on a 3-5 mark. As far as the latter challenge is concerned, Rose ville definitely has the tools to meet it successfully. No less than 12 regular performers in 1962 are on the 1963 squad, and several promising newcomers round out the 49-man Roseville roster. Regulars back from last year are seniors Ethan Pinney, Dick Turner, Wayne Rankin, Rick Jones, Phil Moore, Bill Wainman, Gail Allaman, Stan Conway, Milford Renner, Dick Bycroft, David Brett and junior James Ault. Veterans Wainman and Rankin will be at the ends when Roseville opens its season against Valley here tonight. Senior Dick Tomlin, who will start at one of the halfback positions tonight, will be available for duty at end as the season progresses. Turner (205) and Renner (195) will give the Panthers bulk at the tackle posts. Starting at the guards will be Brent (160) and Pinney (235). Out for cither one or two games will be Bycroft, who will see plenty of action at guard when he re Paces Canadiens MONTREAL (UPI) - Former 50-goal scorer Bernie (Boom- Boom) Geoffrion today has the distinction of being first in three respects at the Montreal Canadi­ ens' hockey camp. Boom-Boom scored the first goal in Montreal's workouts. He also was the first nlavcr to sign a 1963-64 contract and he was the first Canadien to suffer an injury. this pro attraction for the second He suffered a cut above his right consecutive season. eye in the opening scrimmage. covers from a knee injury. Dave Livermore, a 170-pound junior, has won a starting position at center. Stan Tinker, a 130-pound sophomore, will be the starting quarterback tonight. Backing him up will be Jones, last year's starting field general. Joining Tomlin as starting halfback will be either Ault or Moore. Gary Conway, who was slated for action at halfback, suffered a fractured bone in his shoulder and will be out indefinitely. Stan Conway at 160 will be the regular fullback. In McCready's "challenge system," a reserve can challenge a regular during a practice session. Coaches grade the respective players and decide which one will earn a starting berth for the coming game. According to McCready, the "challenge system" has brought out the best efforts from his players. And, in general, the best efforts of individuals this year should be better than those of Roseville gridders last fall. McCready feels that his current club is much faster than last year's squad. In addition, the Roseville line should be tough, both offensively and defensively. Finally, experience should pay off for the Panthers. "We definitely expect to do much better than we did last year," McCready commented. "We respect all of our oppo­ nents, but we are not afraid of any of them." 1963 Schedule Sept. 13—Valley at Roseville. Sept. 20—Media at Roseville. Sept. 27—Stronghurst at Stronghurst.

However, he added that they appear willing and eager and should cause trouble before the season is over. Sellers did volunteer the fact that this could be a bad year to be down in the conference since most of the schools arc fielding strong teams. He picked Astoria to win but said Valley, Northwestern, VIT and Cuba will all be serious threats. Last year the Trojans finished with a 2-3 conference record and 2-6 overall mark. Avon will have fair size and very little speed but may not be too bad off for depth. Ten lettermen bolster the Avon squad although only three of them are seniors. The schedule should give the Trojans an edge with seven games scheduled at home and only two away. They play the last six games of the nine-game card on familiar soil. Lettermen returning are seniors Dennis Chandler, Buddy Ciampit and Roger Sloan; juniors Mike Hamman Joe Paradis, Roger Sensabaugh and Tom Ketchum and sophomores E. E. Davis and Jim Pool. Sloan stands out as the top performer for the Trojans and one of the best linemen in the area. The aggressive Avon senior plays tackle on offense and linebacker on defense. A probable starting line for the Trojans tonight is ends Paradis and Roger Murray, tackles Pool and Sloan, guards Hamman and Kenny Anders and center Davis.
