Friars Host Aledo in Little Six Tilt Phalen's 11 Sets Sights On 3rd Win By JOE MORRI&SEY Not that it was just for fun until now, but Little Six Conference teams will be in dead earnest this weekend with a full slate of league games. And the Corpus Christi Friars will grab a big portion of the conference spotlight Friday night when they entertain the always men- _ ... — acing Aledo Green Dragons • -| at Lombard Field. Coach Jim Phalen's charges, boasting a 2-0 mark to date, could find out how much of a figure they can expect to cut in the 1963 Little Six Conference race in tomorrow night's league test. The Friars are off and running with two victories to date in as many non-league outings. They turned back RMA of Aledo 26-7 in a road game two weeks ago and edged Western (Buda) 13-7 in their home opener last Friday night at Lombard field. However, the local Irish, forced to go with a number of inexperienced players, are still a big question mark in the title picture. They were hit heavily by graduation last June. Big Test Friday night's contest with the Green Dragons, defending champions, could provide the answer to a number of questions. Aledo also suffered at diploma time last spring, but had more than 70 candidates this fall and once again rate as a threat for the league bunting. Coach John Thomas, in his first year as head football coach at Aledo, has seen his stalwarts break even in a pair of assignments thus far. However, this 1-1 record is by no means a true indication of the Green Dragons' strength. Their only loss came at the hands of Geneseo, 39-20, last week after they took the Orion charges into camp 20-0 two weeks ago. The Geneseo Maple Leafs are as strong as they've ever been and are currently rated one of the small school powers in the state. Light, but Tall The Green Dragons are not big as far as weight goes, but have considerable height on their roster. This is one reason their aerial game has proven so successful thus far. Speed is also prevalent on the Aledo eleven with fullback Jim Smith leading the attack with an average of five yards per carry. Directing the wing T offense for the Dragons is Rick Murphy, while halfbacks Tim Hastings and Jim Hilligoss round out the backfield quartet. A probable lineup for Aledo in the forward wall is Scott Bogguss and John Redlinger, ends; Dean Hill and Bob McAlister, tackles; Ernie Carlson and Tom •L OPEN BOWLING TONITE 8:45 P.M. 1576 N Henderson St. Ph 342-6171 Pat Prina Robinson, guards, and Dave Criswall, center. Quarterback Pat Prina and fullback Dan Ridings, both seniors and Iettermen, lead the Friar offensive, but halfbacks Chuck Miller and freshman Lui Spinillo have been impressive. Phalen lists his linemen for tomorrow night as Jim Kennedy and Dick Reavy, ends; Mike Hanrahan and Craig VVilke, tackles; Jim Conover and Tom Fox, guards, and Mike Starr, center. Kickoff time is 7:30. Elsewhere in the Little Six Friday night, Abingdon will travel to Knoxville and Alexis goes to Oneida for a game with the ROVA Tigers. Oklahoma City Eliminated in World Tourney CLEARWATER, Fla. (UPI) Oklahoma City eliminated Portland, Ore., from the men's World Softball tourney 2-0 in a game which had been started Tuesday and delayed in finishing until Wednesday because of rain. Portland, which lost out in a record 31-inning contest to the Clearwater Bombers earlier, was beaten this time when Hal Klepper pitched a perfect game for Oklahoma City. The teams got tw» and one half innings played Tuesday before rain halted play. In another morning game Birmingham, Ala., outlasted Mesa, Ariz., 1-0 in an 11 inning game that had everything but runs. A total of 15 hits and four errors were recorded. Aurora, 111., shut out Philadelphia 3-0 in the final game on the morning schedule behind the one- hit pitching of Harvey Sterkel. NFL Won't Play AFL In Playoff NW YORK (AP)-The National Football League has quashed an informal proposal by the rival American League that the two pro leagues meet in a post-season championship playoff. "We have no plans for such a game," was the only answer of NFL Commissioner Pete Rozelle. The comment came after AFL Commissioner Joe Foss said Wednesday has league might make a formal proposal to the NFL for a playoff in 1964. "We have indicated in the past that we would like to meet thc/i in a playoff," said Foss at a press luncheon. "Always in the past, their answer has been 'We don't consider playing games with people who are suing us.' We sued them because we thought our case had merit, but we lost. Now that is out of the way." The AFL lost an appeal Monday on its $10-million monopoly suit against the NFL. The 4-year-old AFL has made numerous overtures in the past to the 44-year-old NFL about a playoff game, but nothing has ever been formally proposed. And the NFL always has refused to elaborate on its "We have no plans for such a game" statement If the AFL should decide to make a formal proposal it would likely be made in late January when the NFL holds its annual meeting in Miami Beach. (jalesburg Register-Mail GALESBURG, ILL., THURSDAY, SEPT. 26, 1963 PAGE 25 Scots on Road For Ripon Game Gunderson Beaten by French Gal NEWCASTLE, Ireland (AP) - JoAnne Gunderson, three-time U.S. women's amateur golf champion, lost out today in her bid to add the British crown. France's Claudette Cros weathered wind and rain better than the American girl and won, 3 and 2, in the quarter-finals of the title Miss Gunderson sprayed her long shots wildly and never quite coped with the wind. Miss Cros reached the turn one up, added another hole with a smart par three on the tenth and then held steady. She went three up at the 15th with a good five and halved the 15th to close it out. This eliminated the last American challenger for the British crown. MONMOUTH - How do you stop Jack Ankerson? This is a question which Coach Joe Pelisek and the Monmouth College Fighting Scots grid team will be pondering this week as they prepare to battle Ankerson and company at Ripon, Wis., this Saturday. The Monmouth-Ripon game will be the second game of the season for both teams, which currently sport contrasting Midwest Conference records. The Scots lost a heartbreaker to Cornell last Saturday, 21-20, while Ripon was ripping highly- rated Grinnell, 34-0. In the Ripon-Grinnell game, quarterback Ankerson lived up to expectations by scoring 22 points and passing for another touchdown. The Monmouth team will have to stop Ripon's "Mr. Everything" if it hopes to turn the tables on the 1963 conference favorites. Coach Pclisek is not expected to make any drastic changes in his sophomore-dominated starting line-up. Outstanding performances were turned in last Saturday by rangy end John S t e r g u 1 z of Princeton, who caught six passes for 43 yards and one touchdown. Quarterback Jim Pilarski completed nine out of 13 passes for li9 yards, one touchdown, and one two-point conversion, though he. played less than half of last Saturday's game. Monmouth's answer to "Mr. Everything" may be captain Bob Tucker, a junior from Lake Bluff, Illinois. Against Cornell, Tucker carried 12 times for 59 net-yards gained, passed once for seven yards and a touchdown, and caught'two passes for 66 yards and a touchdown. In spite of losing to Cornell College by one point, the Scots are ranked behind only St. Olaf, Coe, Ripon, and Cornell in team offense in the 10-team conference. The Monmouth team completed 10 out of 16 passes for 126 yards and carried the ball 49 times for a total of 166 yards. Coach Pelisek rates the Ripon game as one of the toughest games Monmouth will have to play all season; Warren Giles to Meet With Brass of Mets and Colts READ THE CLASSIFIEDS!

(UPI) - Johnny Revolta, 52-year-old pro at the Evanston, HI., Golf Club, was named today to the PGA Hall of Fame. Revolta was elected by the present members of the Hall of Fame. He is the second golfer named to the Hall this year. Ralph Guldahl was named earlier in a nationwide vote by the PGA membership. Revolta has been pro at the Evanston club for more than 26 years and is actively engaged in numerous golfing events. His greatest year as a playing pro was in 1935 when he won the PGA championship and the Western Open and was leading money winner. He also took the Wisconsin Open that year, READ THE CLASSIFIEDS! CINCINNATI (UPI) — It's about time. That summed up the reaction of officials of the New York Mets and Houston Colts when Warren Giles, president of the National League, announced Wednesday that he has called a Paris Stands As Reward For Carry Back NEW YORK (UPI) — A return trip to Paris awaits Carry Back if he makes good in Saturday's Woodward Stakes at Aqueduct. Trainer Jack Price has completed arrangements for Carry Back's flight to France for the Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe Oct. 6. If the 1961 Kentucky Derby winner, making a comeback after stud duty, fares well in the iy4-mile Woodward, he will be flown from New York Sunday to Orly Airport in Paris. Try to Name Street After Stan Musial ST. LOUIS (AP) - Three St. Louis aldermen will introduce a resolution Friday proposing that a street be named after Stan Musial, retiring St. Louis Cardinal star. The resolution will ask that Oakland Avenue, where Musial's restaurant is located, be changed to Musial Avenue. Introducing the proposal will be Aldermen Anthony Mascazzini, Joseph Roddy and John Sartorius. READ THE CLASSIFIEDS! meeting in Los Angeles Oct. 4 to determine what can be done to strengthen both clubs. "It will be just an informal meeting," Giles said. "But I'm hopeful that something constructive will come out of it." The Mets finished last in their first season in the expanded National League last season and have clinched the basement dwelling again this year. The Colts haven't done much better: they wore eighth last year and will wind up ninth this season. Both clubs spent $2 million apiece in the expansion draft two years ago and claim they wound up with inferior talent. That's why they have appealed to Giles for help — any kind of help. "Our attendance is being robbed," is the way manager Casey Stengel has described the plight of his club. He could be right. The Mets wound up with a home attendance of 1,094,000 this year although they have won only 50 games. Houston's home attendance this year will barely climb over the 700,000 mark. Paul Richards, the Colts* general manager, appealed directly to Giles for help recently and was joined by the Mets' general manager, George Weiss. During a recent league business meeting in Chicago, Weiss contacted several club officials and said he received encouragement. "They told me they felt something should be done to help us," Weiss revealed. Weiss plans to appeal to the owners on the basis of good business sense. He has pointed out before that a better club in New York will bolster the prosperity of the entire league, especially when the Mets move into their new stadium next season.

The contrast between the two teams lies in the fact that the Royals boast the top offensive team in the Na' tional Basketball League Doctor Fails To Break Speed Mark BONNEVILLE SALT FLATS, Utah (UPI) - Dr. Nathan Os- tich planned to give his jet-powered racer a thorough checkup today before making another assault on the world land speed record. Ostich's red and black "Flying Caduccus" failed to reach t h e world record of 407 miles per hour Wednesday because the car's J-47 turbo-jet engine simply wouldn't give maximum output. The car made two runs which were both clocked at 359 m.p.h. In both instances the 54-ycar-old Los Angeles physician gave the car full throttle but the engine produced only 93 per cent power. A quick check was made, and Ostich and his crew found the flow of fuel to the engine was obstructed. They diagnosed t h e trouble 'as a malfunctioning air bleed valve that feeds into the fuel valve. New parts were flown from .Los Angeles, and the confident doctor and crew hoped to have the car repaired and ready to go for another try at the record. Baltimore of AHL Receives Player Boost BALTIMORE (UPI) - The Baltimore Clippers of the American Hockey League were player rich today — thanks to the New York Rangers. The Clippers wound up with eight Ranger players when the parent National Hockey League team made its first squad cuts. The most prominent players shipped to Baltimore were goalie Gillcs Villemure and center Bryan Hextall Jr., son of the former Ranger star. The Clippers also inherited de- fensemen Bob Woytowich, Ted Baylor, Dave Richardson and Mick McMahon, center Jean Ratelle and right wing Marc Dufour. May Abandon Night Prep Grid Games By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS One of America's most cherished traditions — the Friday or Saturday night high school football game — may become passe because of the growth of rowdy­ ism and vandalism among the spectators. The seriousness of the situation was highlighted recently when the city and Board of Education officials in Toledo, Ohio, and Milwaukee announced that all night games involving high school teams were being abandoned. The schools were ordered to play in the afternoon. The Toledo action was taken after a series of fights broke out following a Friday night game. Four policemen were hurt in the disturbance. The Milwaukee City Council switched all games to Saturday afternoon because of what it called "unwarranted attacks and acts of vandalism." Officials said no racial or religious problems apparently were involved. Night high school play was banned in Providence, R.I., where officials said a major factor was "rowdyism, fights and vandalism." Bridgeport, Conn., ended night high school games after a 14-ycar-old boy was stabbed. Chicago cut out night football games for public high schools in 1954. In New York, where there arc hundreds of high schools, only about three per cent play games at night and these aro almost always at the suggestion of an outside rival. To play a night game, it is necessary to get special permission from the school board- given only when trouble is not likely to occur. Placed on Waivers BOSTON (UPI) — Boston Celtics utility man Gene Guarilia was placed on waivers Wednesday. The dismissal of the former George Washington University star reduced the National Basketball Association club's roster to 16 players. Big Ten Eyes Full Schedule By United Press International Most Big Ten football teams ended the long pre-season training grind Wednesday and anxiously awaited a test of skill in opening games this weekend. Defending champion Wisconsin drilled on field goals and extra point kicking. Sophomore quarterback Dave Fronek did most of the field goal work while veteran halfback Carl Silvestri booted extra points. Indiana Coach Phil Dickens said the Hoosiers chances of taking highly regarded Northwestern were "substantially better" after a workout that showed wingback Doug Spicer, guard Don Croft- check and end Rich Wervey had shaken off injuries. Northwestern got bad news when doctors announced that veteran guard Larry Zeno would be sidelined for the season by a neck injury. Coach Ara Parseghian said the Wildcats probably would petition for another year of eligibility for Zeno, a senior. Coach Woody Hayes predicted he would hava "a pretty darn good football team" after watching the Buckeyes in a three-hour workout that concluded heavy drills for the opening game against Texas A & M, Purdue Coach Jack Mollenkopf said he was "generally pleased" with the showing of his young Boilermaker squad that will face Miami in the Orange Bowl Saturday night. Minnesota Coach Murray Warmath announced that four sophomores will be in the starting lineup Saturday against Nebraska. Sophomores Bob Bruggers and John Rajala will be at ends, Dick Harren at left halfback and Bill Dallman at left guard. Michigan Coach Bump Elliott also said he would rely heavily on sophomores against Southern Methodist University. Sophomore starters will include halfbacks Dick Wells and Jack Clancy, center Tom Cecchini, tackle Bill Yearby, and end Jeff Hoyne. Michigan State footballers halt­ ed scrimmage long enough to be introduced one-by - one to 5,000 newly enrolled freshmen. The Illinois starting team was intact today when sophomore guard Jim Grabowski, one of three non-lettermen on the Ilhni first team, returned to scrimmage after resting a sprained ankle. At Notre Dame, a reserve sophomore quarterback known as Dangerous Dan" McGinn, a left hand passer, spent the day hurling passes against the first squad. McGinn was pressed into service to give the regulars a taste of what they might expect Saturday from Wisconsin's southpaw quarterback Harold Brandt. Harry Walker Picked as Top Manager in IL NEW YORK (UPI) - Harry (The Hat) Walker, manager of the Atlanta Crackers, today was named "Manager of the Year" in the International League. Walker, who received the same honor in 1953, guided the Crackers to a tie with Indianapolis for the league's Southern Division lead, but lost to the Indians in a one-game playoff. The former St. Louis Cardinals coach and manager polled 15 of the 26 votes by league sportswriters. Buffalo's Kerby Farrell received seven votes, Rollie Hcmsley, pilot of champion Indianapolis, had three votes and Larry Shepard, Columbus, one. and the Hawks the best defensive unit. However, there is a great deal of similarity between the two clubs since they are picked as two of the most improved clubs In the pro circuit. The Hawks surprised the basketball world last season when they completely rebuilt their ball- club and came within minutes of winning their sixth Western Division title. An injury suffered by Cliff Hagan in the fifth game of the seven-game Western finals put the damper on the club's complete comeback efforts. Drnft Help Additions from the college draft are certain to strengthen both clubs with the Royals awaiting their top choice of this year, Tom Thacker, who is in military service. He'll be unavailable until November. Jerry Lucas, the club's number one pick two years ngo, brings a collegiate background unprecedented in the history of basketball into the NBA. The 6-8 2X'i-pounder was a three-time Ail-American at Ohio State nnd led his club to the NCAA finals all three years. A veteran club that includes Oscar Robertson, Wayne Embry, Jack Twyman and Bob Boozer, a quartet of the game's top scorers, is available to new Coach Jack McMahon. The former Hawks guard also has plenty of bench support from Don Smith, Adrian Smith, Tom Hawkins, Bud Olsen and newcomer Jay Arnettc. himself a former Ail-American collegian. The Hawks have Bob Pcttit and Cliff Hagan spearheading a young crew, a duo usually good for 50 points a game. Last year the I lawks had five rookies, all coming through in fine style. Three of them, center Zelmo Beaty and guards Chico Vaughn and John BarnhilJ, averaged in double figures with Barnhill setting a team record for guards. Add veterans Len Wilkens, Mike Farmer, Phil Jordon, Gene Tormohlen and Bill Bridges to a pair of fine rookies, Gerry Ward and Leland Mitchell, and the Hawks appear the best bet in the West to upend the Lakers' two- year reign. Tickets for this pro basketball attraction can be purchased until game time Friday night. They are now on sale at the American Legion, sponsoring organization; LeGrand's Service, Hawthorne Drugs and the Bowlers Inn. Tipoff time is 8:30.
