Learns No By MARTIN LADER UPI Sports Writer There will be no premature celebrations in Los Angeles this year. The Dodgers have learned their lesson. Anybody else might be digging the corkscrew into the champagne. The Dodgers are keeping their bottles on ice. Los Angeles clinched at least a tie for the National League pennant Sunday when the St. Louis Cardinals lost to the Cincinnati Reds, 5-2. The Dodgers could have clinched the flag by beating the Pittsburgh Pirates, but ins'ead dropped a 4-0 dcision. The outlook is as bright as a World Series share for the Dodgers, who need win just one of their final six games to qualify for what probably will be the richest Series ever against the New York Yankees. Still there was little joy in the Los Angeles dressing room Sunday. "You never celebrate a tie/ 1 explained pitcher Don Drysdale. This was a distinct turnabout from last year's reaction after the Dodgers had clinched a lie with two days remaining in the season. They held an impromptu celebration and then lost their final two games and the playoffs. Finish at Home The Dodgers will play their last six games at home starting with the New York Mcts Tuesday night. They also entertain the Mcts on Wednesday and Thursday nights before closing with a three - game scries against the Philadelphia Phillies. Even should the Dodgers blow all six games, St. Louis still would have to take all five of its own to force a playoff. The Cardinals arc at Chicago for day games on Tuesday and Wednesday and close with a three-game home series against Cincinnati. In other National League activity Sunday, the San Francisco Giants trounced New York, 13-4, the Chicago Cubs beat the Milwaukee Braves, 7-3, and in the lone night game Houston edged Philadelphia, 2-1.

Jim Gilliam beat out a bunt to load the bases before Face got Tommy Davis and Frank Howard on pop flics to end the game. Cincinnati got three unearned runs in the third inning as the result of an error by Julian Javier and the Cardinals were un- ablb to catch up against the six- hit pitching of Joe Nuxhall (14-8). Vada Pinson recorded his 200th hit of the season for the Reds, a two-run triple. Willie McCovey blasted three consecutive home runs off three different pitchers to give him the league lead in homers with 43. Willie Mays also homered for the Giants, who collected 16 hits.

REAL TOBACCO TASTE AND UFT— THAT'S l, COP£\ V GO Tom Moore No Longer Understudy MILWAUKEE (AP) — Green Bay halfback Tom Moore's apprentice days are ended. No longer an understudy, the former Vanderbilt flash is bidding for National Football League stardom as a replacement for suspended Paul Hornung. Moore, the Packers 1 top draft choice in 1960, scored twice on jaunts of 15 and 77 yards Sunday as the defending NFL champions rebounded from an upset by the Chicago Bears and belted the Detroit Lions 31-10 before a sellout 45,912 at County Stadium. Although forced to share the spotlight with Green Bay's mighty defense, Moore proved convincingly that he learned his lessons well in three years as a part-time performer behind Hornung, "The Golden Boy" suspended indefinitely for betting on league games. Moore pulled the Packers out of clanger with his 15-yard dash around end after the Lions had cut the deficit to 10-3. Then, with the score 17-10, he broke through the left side, spun and twisted out of the grasps of two tacklers at his 42 and went on his 77-yard jaunt in the fourth quarter. Smarting from last week's dismal showing against the Bears and their lone 1962 defeat at Detroit last Thanksgiving Day, the Packers overpowered the Lions with a tremendous defense which surrendered a total of 147 yards grudgingly. The Lions managed to complete only six of 26 passes, including one desperation scoring toss which covered 23 yards.

Owner - Coach George Halas praised Wade for calling a "splendid game" and then said he was glad his club did not have to return to Minnesota again this season to face the Vikings. "This Viking team has a lot of spunk," said Halas. "They have a good team and they are going to win a lot of games." Haias probably was right. It was touch and go for the Bears until they clinched the victory with two touchdowns in the final quarter. The Bears went ahead 7-0 in the first quarter on a pass from Wade to Ron Bull for 24 yards. Minnesota tied it in the second quarter when Fran Tarkenton connected with Jerry Reichow on a 24-yard pass. The Bears went ahead to stay in the second quarter on a 36-yard touchdown pass from Wade to Mike Ditka. Wade made it 21-7 when he plunged over from the one-yard line after setting up the score with a pass tc Ditka and then Wade and Ditka teamed up for the final touchdown on a 10-yard pass. The Bears, who last week de- 1 feated Green Bay 10-3, move on to j Detroit Sunday. The Lions lost to Green Bay 31-10. A victory over Detroit would bring the Bears home to meet Baltimore Oct. 6 By MM BECKER Associated Press Sports Writer At this rate, Jimmy Brown is going to run the mile in nine weeks. The incredible fullback of the Cleveland Browns had his second field day in a row Sunday, as the Browns kept their National Football League record unblemished, 41-24 over the disappointing Dallas Cowboys. Brown ran for 232 yards, including touchdown runs of 71 and 62. With the season just two weeks old, Brown now has 394 yards, an average of 197 a game. At that pace, he will pass the mile mark in nine games. After the full weekend slate, the Browns were one of only three teams with a 2-0 record in the NFL. The surprising St. Louis Cardinals and the tough Chicago Bears were the others. The Cardinals stayed even with the Browns in the Eastern Conference by battling back to a 28-24 victory over the Philadelphia Eagles. The Bears took over the top spot in the West with a 28-7 manhandling of the Minnesota Vikings. In other NFL games, Green Bay beat Detroit 31-10, Pittsburgh whipped the New York Giants 31-0 and Baltimore knocked off San Francisco 20-14. Washington whipped the Los Angeles Rams 37-14 Saturday night. In the American Football League, Boston beat Oakland 2014, the New York Jets trimmed Houston 24-17 and Kansas City and Buffalo played to a 27-27 tie. The Packers rebounded from their opening defeat by smothering the Lions. Halfback Tom Moore, the replacement for suspended Paul Hornung, broke the game open with a pair of touchdown runs, including one for 77 yards, and Jim Taylor carried 22 times for 82 yards. The Steelers made their mark 1-0-1, as they scored their first shutout over the Giants since they came in the league 31 seasons ago. John Henry Johnson and Dick Hoak did the heavy duty running as the Steelers stuck to the ground. The Giants missed injured quarterback Y. A. Tittle, ^ and couldn't get started. John Unitas had a great day for the Colts, as the '49ers continued their winless ways. San Francisco coach Red Hickey said, "It's tough each week to say how good the other quarterback was— we make them look good." The Los Angeles Rams also remained one of the 0-2 teams along with the '49ers and Dallas. The Redskins came from a 14-13 deficit with a 77-yard third quarter pass play from Norm Snead to Dick James and added 17 *On the Rebound as solid favorites to win the West- points in the last quarter. championship.

By JOE MOOSHIL Associated Press Sports Writer Northwestern and Wisconsin, the top-ranked teams for the Big Ten football title, launched their league's annual drive for out-of- conference supremacy in convincing fashion Saturday. Getting Ten a head start on Big Ten teams, Northwestern whipped tough Missouri, 23-12, and Wisconsin, the defending champion, opened with a 41-0 triumph over Western Michigan. Both teams performed capably. Northwestern coach Ara Parseghian said he was "deighted to get out of this one alive" and praised his h i g h 1 y-touted quarterback, -Tom Myers. "I don't think Missouri will see another Myers this year,*' said Parseghian. * 4 When Missouri made defensive mistakes trvinfi to other 'Hi ^— + * • 4 W I 4 4 4i - ri n - - k t - * * S N U-F F O TRY A PINCH OF REAL TOBACCO TASTE r t Warmer TOMORROW Time to (nsulate WHITE'S PHONE S42-U185 cover in tight, we threw the long ones." Myers t h r e w one touchdown pass for 23 yards to Chuck Logan and set up two more scores with his pin-point aerials. Pete Stami- son put the game beyond reach with a 37-yard field goal in the final quarter. There was no doubt anywhere that Wisconsin would defeat Western Michigan. However, the Badgers, alter getting off lo a slow start, turned the game into a rout and managed to blank the Broncos. Lou Holland triggered the scoring burst with a 78-yard touchdown run aiid later took a short pass for another touchdown. Hal Brandt, trying to fill in for quarterback Hon VanderKelen, scored two touchdowns on short runs. Both teams will have more im- gage in openers against non- league opponents.

OPIN FRIDAY NIGHT UNTIL 7:30 351 £ Main St. DAVE PATTERSON, Mgr. Gale$buii 343-3157 Big 0 to Display Talents At Galcsburg Gym Friday By JOE MORRISSEY Sports Editor Oscar (the Big 'O) Robertson is one of the most highly publicized basketball players of all time and touted by most observers as the greatest all-around performer in the game today. Galesburg and area fans will get a chance to see the fabulous Robertson in person Friday night when he leads the Cincinnati Royals against the St. Louis Hawks in a National Basketball League pre-season game at the Galesburg High School gym. It will be his first appearance in Galesburg for Robertson who is especially well known in this area because he competed against Brad- Icy University for three seasons in the Missouri Valley Conference. Since he first began re-writing the record books as a sophomore at the University of Cincinnati, sports writers have been wearing out the superlatives in an effort to describe his play. The Greatest? Many people feel that by the time Robertson has completed his playing career he will rank as the greatest cage performer of all time. This forecast may seem a bit premature, but there are a number of convincing facts and figures to support it. His scoring pretty well speaks for itself. The Big 'O has averaged 29.3 points per game in three full seasons with the Royals. He has connected on 49 per cent of his field goals and 81 per cent of his free throws. Oscar usually operates as a guard and is one of' the finest back-court men in the league. He has already bettered the ledgendary Bob Cousy's assist mark twice and now holds season mark at 899 handoffs. However, because of his size —6-5 and 205—he also does a standout job as forward. Along with his ability to score and set up his teammates, he is recognized as one of the strongest re- bounders in the NBA. Oscar led the U.S. to the Olympic court title in 1960 before turning pro and he holds 14 national college scoring records. Cops Honors Named NBA's 1961 rookie of the year, he's been 2 .11-league all three of his pro years and has either won the East-West all-star game MVP title each year or finished second. He's the man who makes the Royals go. Just how far they'll be able to move this year is one of the most imposing questions of the coming NBA season. Last year, they nearly dethroned the perennial titlehoiders, the Bos- Oscar Robertson ton Celtics, carrying them to a seven-game divisional playoff. This year, a goodly portion of the experts figure they'll do the job. The Big O provides the key. Stars Galore Friday's pro attractions will also feature such names as Jerry Lucas, three-time All-America at Ohio State, who just recently signed with the Royals; Jack Twyman and Wayne (Goose) Emery as well as the Hawks' Bob Pettit and Zelmo Bcaty e*nd others. Tickets can be purchased at Hawthorne Drugs, LeGrand's Service Station, Bowlers Inn and the American Legion Home. The Ralph M. Noble Post is sponsoring the program. Game time is scheduled for 8:30. Mickey Wright 1st Woman to Mick- Win 11 Meets VISALIA, Calif. (UPI) - ey Wright is the first woman in history to win 11 Ladies' PGA tournaments in a single year. The power -hitting golfer chalked up No. 11 in capturing the $11,000 Visalia Women's Open with a 72-hole score of 285, four strokes ahead of the field. The old record was 10, held by Louise Suggs. Miss Wright ran her tournament win total to 50 for nine years of campaigning. That ties the record held by Miss Suggs. Sunday's victory was worth $1,350 to Miss Wright. Betsy Rawls finished runnerup with 291, good for $1,070. READ T r E WANT ADS! / asebait White SOX YS Orioles THE SOUND CITIZEN Pit 1400 ON YOUR DIAl 1
