Yesterday's Stars s By The Associated Press ^PITCHING-Dallas Green, Phil- Mis, checked Los Angeles 6-1 on f#e hits as Dodgers' National Lfague lead was trimmed to one game over second-place St. Louis. SBATTING—Ken Boyer and Charley James, Cardinals, led attack in 3-2 and 5-0 victories over Milwaukee that extended St. Louis' winning streak to 10 games. Boyer hit decisive homer in first game, James collected three hits and drove in two runs in nightcap. WARM TOMORROW Time to Insulate WHITE'S PHONE 342-0815 to Philadelphia in which three passed balls, a couple of mental lapses and the five-hit pitching of the Phillic' Dallas Green left the Dodgers with a mere one-game lead over the surging Cardinals. Keane said it after Lew Burdette's six-hit pitching and Ray Sadecki's five-hitter gave St. Louis a 3-2 and 5-0 doublehenrler sweep of Milwaukee, their 10th straight victory and their 19th in 20 games in a bid to overhaul Los Angeles. The Dodgers, who led by seven games on Aim. 30, have 12 games remaining. The Cardinals, who have lost only one game since Aug. 30, have 10 left. They're all even in victories, with St. Louis two games back in the lost column. The pitching rotation looks like this for the three-game series: Los Angeles—Johnny Podres, 1310; Sandy Koufax, 23-5, and probably Pete Richert, 5-1. St. Louis—Ernie Broglio, 16-8; Curt Simmons, 15-7, and Bob Gibson. 18-8. While the Dodgers and Cardinals were in the spotlight Sunday, Cincinnati's John Tsitouris three- hit the Chicago Cubs 3-1, Willie Mays hit his 35th homer as San Francisco walloped Pittsburgh 13-5 and Houston took a pair from the New York Mets 5-4 and 5-0. The American League champion New York Yankees edged Minnesota 2-1 Boston whipped Kansas City 5-3, Baltimore downed Detroit 2-1 and Cleveland defeated the Los Angeles Angels 6-3. The Chicago White Sox and Washington were rained out. Green, a rarely used right-hand­ er brought his record to 6-4 against the Dodgers, allowing the only run on a homer by Tommy Davis in the fourth inning. The Phillies already had put it out of reach when they got to Don Drysdale, 17-17, for two runs in the first inning on a single by Tony Taylor, his steal of second, Johnny Callison's single, a bunt single by Wes Covington and Roseboro's first passed ball. Two more passed balls by Roscboro, a late throw by Ron Fairly on a sacrifice and Roy Sievers* home run led to the rest of the runs. The Cardinals came off a nine- game winning streak and now have a 10-game string. In the last eight games, the pitching staff has come up with five shutouts. Burdette, 9-11, had one until the seventh when Hank Aaron hit his 42nd homer, with one on. The Cardinals already had their three runs on a double by Ken Boyer and Bill White's homer in the second and Boyer's homer in the fourth. Sadecki, 10-8, had an easier job, backed by a 14-hit attack that included three hits each by Charley James and Tim McCarver. Singles by Curt Flood, James, McCarver and Julian Javier gave the Cardinals two runs in the second—more than they needed. "We're ready as we ever will be," said Keane.

HANGING OVER HIS HEAD ISP 8 Raiders Give Fair Warning In Battle for AFL Crown ALIGNMENT 6.50 GUARANTEED 4 ,000 MILES MODERN ALIGNMENT & BRAKE 131 NORTH CHERRY PHONE 343-1414 H«yr« 9 \Q 9, Monday through Friday Woman Best Puffer OMBERSLEY, England (UPD— Mrs. Winifred Connolly Sunday defeated 50 men in a pipe-puffing contest when she kept puffing for 49 minutes and 20 seconds. By United Press International The Oakland Raiders have given opposing teams fair warning that they no longer are doormats of the American Football League. In fact, they could wipe their cleats on many of their rivals this year. For the second consecutive week the Raiders have upset a co-favorite in the Eastern Division. They handed the favored Buffalo Bills a 35-17 trouncing Sunday before a record turnout of 17,568 in their opening hqme game of the season. It was the only game played Sunday. The Raiders combined a sharp, hard-hitting defensive line with an almost flawless passing attack to gain their second win of the season. Last week coach Al Davis' crew upset the other favorite, Houston, 24-13. A new AFL two-team passing record was set as the Raiders, mainly on the passing arm of Cotton Davidson who played most of the game at quarterback, gained 397 yards through the air to 355 for the Bills. The 752 yards supplants the old mark of 716 set in 19fil by Houston and Buffalo. Davidson completed 14 of 29 passes for 315 yards and Tom Flores three of six for 82 yards. Jack Kemp, Daryle Lamonica and Cookie Gilchrist completed 26 ol 48 a -rials for Buffalo. In AFL games Saturday, the Houston Oilers made use of key interceptions to defeat the Denver Broncos, 20-14, and the San Diego Chargers edged Boston, 17-13, on long-scoring passes by Paul Lowe and Tobin Rote.

S. Team Optimistic in Davis Cup DENVER (UPI)-Thc U.S. Davis Cup team looked optimistically across the Atlantic Ocean today — after neatly shutting out Venezuela in the five-match American Zone tennis finals here during the weekend. The Americans took two singles matches in a finale Sunday, with Dennis Ralston and Arthur Ashe Jr., the first Negro to play for the U.S. in Davis Cup competition, outpointing Orlando Bracamonte and Iyo Pimentel. Ralston outplayed Pimentel, 18-16, 9-7, 6-4, and Ashe wiped out Bracamonte, 6-1, 6-1, 6-0. As for the elusive Davis Cup, now held by Australia, "we think we can take it," beamed Bob Kelleher, non-playing U.S. captain. "It's going to be tough, but we're optimistic and think we've got a top-notch outfit." The coveted cup still is a long way off. The next step for the powerful U.S. team will be Bournemouth, England, to meet the European Zone champion Sept. 26-28. The Americans leave for Bournemouth today, A win in England would vault the U.S. team to a match with India, the Asian Zone champions. The winner in India will challenge the Australians for the Cup Dec, 26-28. The United States has not won since 1958. ^ (jalesburg Register-Mall GALESBURG, ILL., MONDAY, SEPT. 16, 1963 PAGE 14 Bears 9 Defense Praised in Win Over Green Bay By United Press International Cheer all you want for Jimmy Brown, Y. A. Tittle and even Fran Tarkenton, 'but the most astonishing performance of the National Football League's opening weekend was the Chicago Bears' revamped defense. In a game that owner-coach George Halas described as "the greatest team effort I've ever experienced," the Bears held the champion Green Bay Packers to a net total of 160 yards Sunday and knocked off coach Vince Lombardi's men, 10-3. This was the lowest Packers scores since 1959 and the first time they were beaten in Green Bay since 1960. Brown indicated he enjoys the new regime of coach Blanton Collier by scoring three touchdowns in Cleveland's 37-14 win over the Washington Redskins; Tittle threw three touchdown passes and ran 9 yards for a score in Ford Set for Either L. A., St. Louis By JACK HAND Associated Press Sports Writer Whitey Ford is ready any day the Dodgers and Cardinals get things settled. If the Dodgers win, he and Sandy Koufax will open the World Series. If the Cardinals prevail, Ford's Yankee Stadium opponent Oct. 2 probably will be Curt Simmons. Ford proved Sunday that he is primed for his usual October exercise. The New York Yankees' ace threw a two-hitter at the Min­ nesota Twins for his 23rd victory, 2-1. Financially speaking, Ford and the Yanks undoubtedly would vote for a rich series with Los Angeles and its big ball park. However, the possibility of a head-to-head joust with the fearless St. Louis club and a dramatic final appearance for Stan Musial must be alluring. No matter who wins the National League, the Yankees aren't going to let any rust develop after their early pennant clinching in the American League. The defeat dropped Minnesota into third place behind Chicago, whose game at Washington was rained out. Baltimore edged Detroit 2-1, although the Orioles were victims of the first triple play in the league since 1960. Felix Mantilla's two-run homer off John Wyatt enabled Boston to down Kansas City 5-3. Cleveland beat Los Angeles and Bo Belinsky 6-3. The Cardinals drew to within one game of the Dodgers in the National by beating the Milwaukee Braves twice 3-2 and 5-0 while Philadelphia was knocking off Los Angeles 6-1. San Francisco downed Pittsburgh 13-5, Cincinnati topped Chicago 3-1 and Houston swept a pair from New York 5-4 and 5-0. Ford has won six in a row and has equalled Koufax's total for the season. The victory was No. 100 for the Yanks, four more than they won last year with 10 more games to go. JencksGets Field Goal In Triumph GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP)-The Green Bay Packers are human after all. They've been stripped of any invincibility tag. "Both teams were ragged, but we had nothing going," said Green Bay Coach Vince Lombardi, whose charges lost only one of 15 outings en route to a second straight NFL title last year. The Bears were fired up after eight straight league and exhibition losses to the Packers in pro football's oldest rivalry. They got a 32-yard field goal by Bob Jencks in the first period and a touchdown plunge by Joe Marconi in the third quarter and let their defense take care of the rqst. The Chicago defenders did their job in amazing fashion, picking off four passes and recovering a fumble while becoming only the second team to stop the Packers without a touchdown in four seasons. It also marked the Packers' first defeat in Green Bay since a 17-14 loss to Chicago in the 1960 opener. Green Bay's vaunted running attack netted only 77 yards—53 by Jimmy Taylor in 12 attempts and 24 by Tom Moore in nine carries.

In the other game on Sunday's program, the Philadelphia Eagles and Pittsburgh Steelers battled to a 21-21 tie, and in Saturday night games, the Detroit Lions whipped the Los Angeles Rams, 23-2, and the St. Louis Cardinals upset the Dallas Cowboys, 34-7. The NFL's seven opening games attracted 334,734 fans—an average of 47,819 per contest. The largest crowd — 60,029 — watched the Giants-Colts battle at Baltimore. The smallest turnout was the 30,781 that watched the Vikings-Forty Niners opener at San Francisco. The attendance at the other openers: Pittsburgh at Philadelphia, 58,205; Washington at Cleveland, 57,618; Detroit at Los Angeles, 49,342; Chicago at Green Bay, 42,327; St. Louis at Dallas, 36,432. READ THE WANT ADS! Fans Await Big Weekend Of Football The first big weekend of the college football season looms ahead with some attractive intersectional games making it very interesting for fans and a little unsettling for coaches. Actually, the season opened last weekend with a light schedule, including Georgia Tech's 9-0 victory over Florida in a Southeastern Conference game and Furman's 17-0 victory over Davidson in a Southern Conference battle. But this weekend, many of the nation's top teams will be playing and a lot of questions will be answered. Some fears undoubtedly will be realized, too. Three Friday night games start things off with Pittsburgh meeting UCLA in Los Angeles, Southwestern Conference favorite Texas playing Tulane in New Orleans, and Florida State battling Miami and George Mira in the Orange Bowl. The big intersectional clashes Saturday find Navy at West Virginia, defending collegiate champ Southern Cal at Colorado, Big Ten hopeful Northwestern at Missouri, Clemson at Oklahoma, Kansas at TCU, eastern champion Penn State at Oregon, Washington at Air Force, and Texas A&M at LSU. The Ivy League doesn't open until Sept, 28 and consequently the eastern schedule is light. Boston College will be at Syracuse in the top eastern encounter while Army opens with - a much improved Boston University team at West Point.
