Time L.A. 's Strongest Ally In Final 10 Days of Race By United Prcsw Inter national Time will be the Los Angeles Dodgers' strongest ally and the St. Louis Cardinals' most deadly opponent tonight when they head j into the final 10 days of the National League pennant race. With the magic number for a Dodger pennant-clinching standing at five, the Dodgers open a three-game series with the Pittsburgh Pirates at Los Angeles while the Cardinals start a two- game set with the Reds at Cincinnati. A Dodger victory and a) Cardinal loss tonight would re- \ duce the magic number to three! and mean Los Angeles could clinch as early as Sunday. J The Dodgers will send side- wheeling Don Drysdale to the mound tonight in quest of his 18th victory with the Pirates giving Don Cardwell (13-15) the assignment against him. The Dodgers hold an 11-4 season edge over the Pirates, who have lost four of their last six games. The Cardinals, all but mathematically eliminated from the race when they lost three straight to the Dodgers in St. Louis, will open tonight with Ray Sadecki (10-8) or Ernie Broglia (16-8) on the mound opposing the Reds' John Tsitouris (10-8). The Cardinals have won only six of 13 previous games with the Reds this season. Hope for Repeat Actually, the Cardinals' only real hope is that the same paralyzing lightning that struck the Dodgers in the closing 10 days of the 1962 season will hit them again. Exactly a year ago, on Sept. 20, 1962, the Dodgers also held a four- game lead over the San Francisco Giants. The Dodgers stood 99-54 and the Giants were 95-58. The Dodgers then won only two of the last nine games while the Giants won six of their last nine to create a playoff in which San Francisco "stole the Dodger flag." All practical considerations, however, favor, the Dodgers. They play all their remaining games at home, they have Sandy Koufax at the height of his pitching brilliance this year whereas a year ago he was handicapped by a fin\On the Rebound* Death of 'Chet' Wilmoth Recalls Track Feats By JOE MORRISSEY Sports Editor Sports fans of this area were shocked by the recen death of Chet Wilmoth, outstanding track performer for Abingdon High School and Knox College during the 1920s and *30s. Wilmoth, 55, whom Dean Trevor, director of athletics at Knox, called one of the finest runners to compete for the Siwashers, was pronounced dead on arrival at the Cottage Hospital Wednesday evening, the victim of a heart attack. While at Abingdon, Wilmoth set Knox County track meet records that still stand in both the quarter and half mile runs. In 1925 he ran the 440 on 52.6 and the 880 in 2:06.4 as a high school junior. One of the high spots of Wilmoth's illustrious track career came in 1926, his senior year, when he ran the half mile in 2:02.5 in the National Interscholastic meet in Chicago. This record still stands as an Abingdon school mark. Wilmoth later lettered in track at Iowa University, but then transferred to Knox College COOLER TOMORROW Time to Insulate WHITE'S PHONE 342-0815 where he was an exceptional runner. Wilmoth also lettered in football for the Siwashers. He retained interest in Knox College athletics through the years and was a regular timer at all Siwash track meets. When in good health he rarely missed a Knox event in any sport. Wilmoth was also well known in the area as a sandlot baseball player. -J- Dale Adkins, sports director at WGIL for the past two years, did his last Galesburg High School game last night and will do his final play-by-play for the local radio station tonight when he broadcasts the Corpus Christi- Buda game from Lombard Field. Dale has accepted the position of station manager with WDQM in DuQuoin and will begin his new job Monday morning. Adkins, who has followed the Streaks and other area sports teams for two years, has been connected with WGIL for Vh years. The Register-Mail sports department wishes Dale luck in his new post.

No Games In National There were no games played in the National League Thursday and in the American League's only two games the Detroit Tigers beat the Minnesota Twins 8-6 in 13 innings and the Los Angeles Angels defeated the Baltimore Orioles 7 -2. Al Kaline drove in four runs, hit two homers and a single and tripled in the winning run for the Tigers in a three-hour and 55-minute straggle in which 42 players participated. Kaline's four runs batted in increased his season total to 100. Phil Regan, fifth Detroit pitcher, posted his 14th victory against eight losses. A crowd of only 476, smallest in the majors this season, turned out at Los Angeles to see Bo Belinsky pitch a five-hitter against the Orioles for his second win of the season and first since being recalled from the Pacific Coast League. The Angels clinched the game with a four-run eighth-inning rally during which Bob Perry and Bob Rodgers homered. By The Associated Press NATIONAL LEAGUE W. L. Pet. G.B.

Dodgers Get Warning From Walt Alston LOS ANGELES (AP) — With words of warning from Manager Walt Alston that they still have to win the National League pennant, the Los Angeles Dodgers buckled down to their final home stand tonight.

Overtrick Sets Pace in Big Race DELAWARE, Ohio (AP)—Overtrick, the sleek bay colt owned by Mrs. Leonard J. Buck of Far Hills, N.J., got a lot of revenge Thursday as he won the Little Brown Jug in straight heats. He did it in fancy style, too. The Solicitor - Overbid offspring raced the first heat far off the rail in 1:57 1-5—the fastest any pacer or trotter has ever gone over a half-mile track in competition. He came right back in 1:57 3-5, making every post a winning one, as he again cracked the old record. In picking up $38,245, and running his year's earnings to $125,341, the fleet 3-year-old pacer bettered the world record for a single heat of 1:58 3-5 set in 1960 by Muncy Hanover and tied by Bullet Hanover in the first two heats of the Jug. His combined time of 3-54 4-5 also erased the best straight heat time of 3:58 2-5 set by Lehigh Hanover a year ago. The New York Mets drew more than one million fans for the 1963 season with nine games left for the old Polo Grounds.

MILWAUKEE (UPP - County executive John Doyne and a local banker" today wore trying to muster a drive to keep the Milwaukee Braves from moving to another city amid speculation the ball club was planning to do so. Doync said Thursday he had talked with the executive director of the Greater Milwaukee Committee, and the group planned tn take up the Braves' situation at o meeting scheduled today. He was being backed in his drive to keep the Braves in Milwaukee by banker Eliot Fitch, who Thursday bought 1,000 tickets for 1964 because "Milwaukee must remain a major league city." Doync indicated today's meeting would center on ways to stimulate season ticket sales and exploration of the radio-television revenue potential. Braves' President John McIIale reiterated Thursday night the ball team has made no commitment to any city, including Milwaukee, for the 1964 season, despite having a contract with the county for the stadium that runs until 1965. McHalc said the Braves' board of directors would consider very soon the offers of all cities who have approached the owners in recent weeks about moving the franchise that came here from Boston in 1953. At Minneapolis, sportscaster Frank Buetel reported the Milwaukee club will "definitely" move to Atlanta, Ga., under the sponsorship of the Coca-Cola Bottling Co.

Commissioner Pete Ro7 .cllc's schedule calls for the defending National Football League champions to face the Chicago Bears, Detroit and Baltimore on the first three weeks of the season. Already beaten by the Bears, Coach Vincc Lombardi needs no pep talk to whip up his Packers for their date with the Lions. Detroit players were free with their comments after their 25-14 shocker over the Packers Thanksgiving Day. Despite the defeat by the Bears, it is the feeling here that Green Bay will respond to the challenge and turn back Detroit in another grind it out effort. Here's the way the weekend schedule looks from here: (All Sunday unless otherwise noted) the Vikings were the terrors of the exhibition season. Baltimore 21, San Francisco 7 —Unless Johnny Unita3 was roughed up too much by the Giants, he should shred the 49ers' pass defease. Los Angeles 21, Washington 14 (Saturday night.)— The vulnerable Redskin pass defense can be had if Swede Svare picks the right quartcrack. Cleveland 24, Dallas 21—Jimmy Brown is hot and Frank Ryan haa won the quarterback job. The Cowboys looked bad last week against St. Louis. St. Louis 28, Philadelphia 21— Could go either way. Eagles will miss suspended Don Burroughs on pass defense against Charley Johnson. Boston Wants Braves Back BOSTON (AP) — Boston wants the Br&vcs back. Mayor John F. Collins Thursday wrote to Braves President John McIIale suggesting the National League baseball team which moved to Milwaukee from Boston 10 years ago, come home. Rumors have been common lately that the Braves might move again. NATIONAL LEAGUE I Green Bay 13, Detroit 7—Lombardi may have a surprise for the Lions in this bitter battle of two top defensive units. The field goal should win again for the Packers just as it did in their first meeting last year. New York 20, Pittsburgh 16— The Stcclers always are tough for the Giants with their solid defense. Lou Michaels' field goals will keep Pittsburgh in the game but the Giants' air arm is too strong. Chicago 21, Minnesota 17—The Bears cannot afford to let down after the Packer game because AMERICAN LEAGUE Houston 23, New York 14—The Jets make their home bow and should be improved over their opener two weeks ago. Kansas City 21, Buffalo 17—The Chiefs romped over Denver and have had a week off to get ready for the Bills who have lost two in a row. Oakland 28, Boston 20—Al Davis appears to have come up with a good scoring club that will be too much for the Patriots unless Babe Parilli has a hot day. Denver and San Diego have the week off.
