Streaks Host Canton in Illini Encounter Knox,Grinnell Vie Saturday Visitors Go After Third IF/ - Win in Row BOB DURBIN, defensive line backer for Galesburg High School, is slated to see considerable action when-the Streaks host Canton Saturday night at Lombard Field. By JOE MORRISSEY Galesburg's Silver Streaks, still seeking their firs, gridiron victory of the 1963 season, hope to break the ice at the expense of an old "friend" Saturday night a Lombard Field. However, it's not likely that the Canton Little Giants, who at one time might have been termed foot- ; , ,.. ball "cousin s" of the Streaks, will be sympathetic to the cause. When the Streaks lost .13-6 contest to the Little Giants last season it was only the second time in more than 20 years that a Canton team had defeated Galesburg on the football field. But the Canton gridders appear to have completed their amazing football turn-about and this year the Little Giants arc labeled as solid threats for the Illini Conference crown. In fact, many feel this is the best grid team in the history of the school. The Little Giants boast one of the top fullbacks in the state in 6-2 190 pound Rich Johnson. He and halfback Mike Burgard lead Canton in scoring with four touch downs apiece. Scouting reports made from impressive Canton victories over Kewanee and Macomb indicate that the Little Giants boast heavy line and big and fast backs. They are now 2-0 for the season and 1-0 in Illini Conference play. The Galesburg season mark is in sharp contrast to the Canton record with the Streaks losing to Richwoods 13-7 in the opener and dropping a 26-14 battle to Peoria Woodruff last weekend. This has been disappointing to Coach C C. Van Dyke and his coaching staff who were relatively opti mistic in pre-season forecasts. However, last week the Streaks were beaten by a big ajid rugged Woodruff team which had racked up Champaign on opening night. The Streaks scored first in this game but couldn't cope with the explosive power of the Warriors. The Streaks lost the services of regular quarterback Jim Coiv ner on the afternoon of the Woodruff game when it was discovered he had fractured his right hand. Junior Jim Catlin filled in for Conner and did a creditable job. Practices for the Streaks this week stressed offensive drills to polish up the attack and considerable work on defense. Against Woodruff the locals were guilty of some errors on pass defense. Van Dyke anticipates some possible changes in the starting lineup but as it stands now the backfield should be the same with Catlin at quarterback, Fritz Menke and Terry Autmon at the halfback posts and Danny Stewart at fullback. Probable starters in the line are Larry Stinson and Mike Davis, ends; Barry Schumann :ind John Holmes, tackles; Don Maze and Gene Denisar, guards and Larry Foster, center. On defense Denisar will move to end while Tom Ekstrom will see action at safety and Bob Durbin at a linebacker post. Monmouth, Churchill In 7-7 Tie George Churchill Junior High drove to a touchdown after the opening kickoff Thursday but couldn't stay out in front and had to settle for a 6-6 tie with Monmouth. Fumbles were the downfall of the Churchill Gridders who bob bled the ball several times. One blunder helped set up the tieing touchdown for Monmouth. Monmouth scored from the three-yard line and missed the all-important extra point. However, Churchill was offside and the kick was good on the second attempt. George Churchill Ends—Hawkins, Turner, Parr and Jackson. Tackles—Weaver, Allen and An derson. Guards—Kreps, Jobe and Swan son. Backs—Johnson, Foster, Catlin Tate, LeMasters and Yaw. Ends — Brown, Stanton and Bethal. Tackles—Young and Meritz. Guards—Elliot, Kemmett, Ray and Baldridge. Center—Flllman. Backs—Kelley, Olson, Romine Burgland, Beal, Sheridan and Florence.

Henderson 342-6171 Young Fans Brawl at Grid Game CHICAGO (AP) - Seventeen youths and seven girls were arrested by police Thursday after fighting broke out in the stands near the close of the Englewood- Hyde Park High School football game in Stagg Field at the University of Chicago. Police said no students were seriously hurt but many suffered minor cuts and bruises. Police estimated the crowd at the game at 1,500. Police said students reported that the fight had been planned for at least a week prior to the game and was not the result of the game, won by Englewood, 31 to 0.

The other five youths, all juveniles, and the girls were released to their parents.

Siwashers Make '63 Home Debut Football on a college level will make its 1963 debut in Galesburg Saturday afternoon when the Knox Si- washers arc host to the Grinnell Pioneers. The Pioneers, current Midwest Conference champions, do have one particular parallel with Knox—they haven't scored STRATEGY MEETING—Head coach Al Partin (far right) of Knox College and backficld coach Harley Knoshcr discuss plans for Saturday's home opener with co-captains Dave Eiss (14) and Gary Nics. The Siwashers battle the Grinnell Pioneers Saturday on the Knox field. Game time is 1:30. a single point yet this season. Grinnell, like Knox, opened the season last weekend and the Pioneers were completely throttled by a powerful Ripon team. The Siwashers dropped a 30-0 game at Bcloit after trailing only 7-0 at hnlflimc and 9-0 at the three quarter mark. So when the whistle signals the start Saturday afternoon a couple of point - hungry teams will be primed to break the Ice offensively. Such a setup could bring about n high scoring battle such as the 3421 Grinnell victory over the Siwashers last season.

Lombard's Jerry Crowell scored the winning touchdown when he went over from 10 yards out with just 15 seconds left in the game. He had excellent blocking from his teammates. The point after touchdown was scored by John Danielson. Lombard's defense was especially stingy, not yielding one first down to Canton nor allowing the visitors to pass the mid- field stripe. A number of Lombard players stood out on defense. In five years the Zephyrs have won three and lost two games in the Canton series. Lombard plays at Farmington Thursday.

Grinnell is expected to operate against Knox with a backfield featuring four experienced lettermen. The Pioneers will be directed by quarterback Dick Orchard and will have senior fullback Joel Goldman, and juniors Elston Bowers and Chip Clark at the halfback slots. Last year, Bowers gained 521 yards, while Goldman netted 508. If the Siwashers can stop the charges of these two hard-hitting runners, they could bottle up the Pioneers' attack. Last Saturday at Beloit, the Knox offense was led by halfback Don Harrington and fullback Dave Kiss. With an Injury to sophomore halfback Bob Brr.*silc, another Knox sophomore, P etc Holstrom, will be called upon this week to fill the gap. As usual, the quarterback position will belong to junior "Duke" Botthof, who was voted "most valuable player" in the opener. Both the Siwashers and Pioneers were surprised by the power of their opponent last Saturday. They'll be "no holds barred" tomorrow afternoon as each goes after victory No. 1. Kickoff time is 1:30.

Leahy's departure a decade ago, has perked both the curbstone and genuine Irish alumni. Joe McArdle, now a South Bend insurance man and former "Captain Bligh" Irish line coach under Leahy, observe-:: "Not in 10 years have I seen such enthusiasm and spirit at Notre Dame." Former Chicago Bear and Irish star tackle George Connor this week donned grid garb and gave pointers to Devore's questionable tackles. Johnny Lattner, former Irish backfield great and now a Chicago restaurateur, watched a fall scrimmage and said: "I don't know how much backfield speed Notre Dame will have this fall, but the power and depth is there, better than I have seen in a few years."

Devore, a freshman end in Rockne's final year before a tragic plane crash claimed the famed Rock's life and assistant under Leahy, Terry Brennan and Joe Kuharich, comments only that his team "has certain potential." '"We couldn't face a tougher opening opponent than Wisconsin, but if we can find any weakness, we'll work hard on it," said the 52-year-old Devore, whose said visage belies a crisp and thorough football approach. Wisconsin, already a 41-0 victor over Western Michigan, brings a swift, seasoned and brawny squad in the first Badger visit to Notre Dame since 1944. But like Notre Dame, the Badgers still are trying to find an established quarterback. Southpaw Harold Brandt, who saw little service behind brilliant Ron Ban- derKelen last season, will match wits and passes with Irish starter Denis Szot, an inexperienced junior — at least at the start. A crowd of 55,000 will watch tho Irish and Badgers collide for tho 15th game since 1900. The Irish hold a 7-5 edge in tho series with two ties.
