Aledo Romps Past Corpus Christi, 37-12 rriars rlunk First Test In Little 6 By JOE MORRISSEY It was all Aledo Friday night at Lombard Field, especially in the second half, as the Green Dragons romped to a 37-12 victory over the Corpus Christi Friars in Little Six Conference play. Trailing by just seven Vandalism Reported at Prep Games Vandalism and rowdyism by students and other spectators, which has forced several cities to rule out night high school football games, caused disturbances at Des Moines, Iowa, and Pleasantville, N.J., Friday night. At Des Moines, 10 persons were injured, one seriously, when a tear gas bomb was thrown into the crowd shortly before halftone of a game between Des Moines Roosevelt and Des Moines Tech. In Pleasantville, fighting broke out among fans after Middle Township High School defeated Pleasantville 13-7. Fighting spread to the streets and it took eight regular policemen and 13 special officers to restore order. Police Sgt. Charles Cohee commented: "The kids have ruined it for themselves. I think this should be the beginning of the end for night football games. We've had it." Authorities in Des Moines said the bomb thrown by an unidentified teen-age boy apparently struck 4-year-old Jay Michael Coffey on the head. Jay and his 18-month-old sister, Patricia, were trampled as fans scrambled to get away from the fumes. Both were hospitalized, the boy in serious condition with head injuries, his baby sister in good condition. Police said 100 or more persons may have suffered some ill effects from the fumes, but most did not require hospitalization. The melee -at Pleasantville broke out after the Pleasantville quarterback was tackled behind the line of scrimmage in a desperate pass attempt on the final play of the game. The quarterback and his tackier were wrestling together on the field as the gun sounded and players from both benches and fans from both sides rushed on the field. A fire truck brought into action by police cleared the field but the fighting then spread to the streets. Police said they had calls from all over town that youngsters were fighting and blocking traffic. Rocks and other objects were thrown into buses carrying visiting fans. Some two dozen youths were taken into custody. Two 17-year- old boys were booked, one for being drunk and disorderly and the other for cursing police.

Ottawa Has Losing Streak On Gridiron Broken at 27 SPRINGFIELD, 111. (AP)-Unheralded Dixon marred the 27- game win streak of Ottawa High School's football team Friday with a tie and the wear and tear of toughening schedules spoiled other perfect records. Dixon, twice a loser, held Ottawa to a 7-7 deadlock. North Central-area teams looked on Ottawa as a chief threat this season. Decatur tumbled from the unbeaten list. In the 6-0 victory, Bloomington emerges a clear- cut favorite for the Big Twelve title. But Springfield kept in contention, opening with a 13-7 reversal of Lincoln. Salem, the North Egypt Conference favorite which notched a 47-0 shutout last week, failed to score against Flora's 12 points. But East St. Louis hugged its unbeaten and once-tied status and Alton by the top-heavy score of 33-7. A 13-13 tie between Collinsville and Granite City prevented a first loss for these two Southwestern elecens. Belleville bounced back with a 43-7 triumph at the expense of Quincy. A 13-13 tie with Herrin in a South Seven Conference opener darkened the outlook for Centralia. The Orphans were trying to rebound from a 39-13 defeat last week by Mattoon. Heretofore unbeaten, Mattoon also hit trouble, losing to Champaign 6-0. West Frankfort topped Mount Vernon 13-6 and Marion conquered Benton 28-14 in other South Seven results that burnished Marion's hopes for a first title. The Big Eight race opened with Freeport downing Rockford Auburn 26-0. Auburn, a defending co- champion of the league, had bat- remained the Southwestern title I tied to two ties so far. Freeport choice by hanging a first loss on I lost its only game by one touch­ down to Peoria Manual. In another Big Eight game, unbeaten Rockford West settled for a 7-7 tie with LaSalle-Peru. Peoria Central retained apparent leadership in the Midstate Eight by dumping Woodruff of Peoria for its first loss, 22-7. But Spalding halted Richwoods 34-0 to keep in the Peoria-area running. Eastern Illinois Conference fans saw the defending champion, Newton, top Oblong 20-0. Paris set back Marshall 25-0 while Charleston whipped Casey 38-0. Dixon's tie of Ottawa put Rochelle in a new light. Rochelle defeated Dixon last week 41-21 and opened play Friday in defense of its southwest division title with a 28-0 win over Rock Falls. Streator, viewed as a threat to Ottawa in its northeast division 1 title defense, lost to Kewanee 21-7. O mandos coached by Bob Kniss with only four starters back from last year's squad, as compared to Knoxville's seven returning regulars could not seem to get moving against the tough Knoxville team.

Gallatin made these observations Friday afternoon after he and his team had arrived in Galesburg for last night's St. Louis-Cincinnati pre-scason basketball game. "Wo definitely will be stronger than last year," was Gallatin's emphatic response to a particular question, "but it's difficult to predict our comparative strength because several other teams have improved considerably. "In fact, because of the changes in a few of the clubs, we will just have to wait and see," Gallatin added. In reference to the improved balance of the league ns a whole, he pointed out tfrat he feels the Boston Celtics will miss Bob Cousy more than many people realize. Turns Coach Cousy, one of the all time greats, quit the game last year to become head basketball coach at Holy Cross.

Harry predicted that Cincinnati, a high-powered offensive club, should give the Celtics a real run for their money again and that the Royals might get over the hump this time. Asked how it was that Wilt the Stilt Chamberlain could break all kinds of scoring records and yet his teams were never very successful. Chamberlain is without a doubt a tremendous offensive player," Gallatin stated, "but whenever you have such a player it tends to stereotype the offense and help the defensive team. I feci that it is too much offense concentrated in one person and not enough balance." Explaining the Hawk strategy against the fabulous scoring giant, Gallatin said, "basically we try to keep the ball away from him, but this is not an easy task." Big 'O' Tops Gallatin named Oscar Robertson of the Royals and Elgin Bay"or of the L.os Angeles Lakers a3 the toughest players to stop in the National Basketball Association. When asked to pick between these two tremendous pro players, Harry cast his vote for Robertson on the basis of the Big O's greater all-around ability. "Oscar is one of the league's most feared scorers, but he complements this with his phenomenal ability to set up his teammates." Gal/a tin cited the Hawks' Zclmo Bcaty as one of the future stars in the NBA. Bcaty, in his second year as a pro, showed great potential in his rookie year. •Harry is also high on Charlie Vaughan, who he coached at Southern Illinois University. Another second-year man, Vaughan has worked his way to the top seven players among the Hawks. "We had eight new players last year," Gallatin concluded, "and they're bound to have improved."
