READ THE WANT ADSI U.S. Team Wraps Up Honors BOURNEMOUTH, Eng. (AP)— The United States completed a clean sweep of its interzone Davis Cup tennis semifinal against Britain today when Frank Froehling III of Coral Gables, Fla., defeated Mike Sangster 6-1, 4-6, 6-0 6-4 for the fifth straight victory. Earlier Chuck McKinley of San Antonio, Tex., the Wimbledon champion, routed Billy Knight 8-6, 6-2, 6-3. The U.S. team clinched the series Friday by winning the doubles. The Americans play India next month in the interzone final at Bombay. The winner of that series will get' the right to challenge Australia for the international trophy in December. With the series already settled, the Americans simply breezed through today's final singles matches. The lanky Froehling had a letdown in the second set but bounced back and won easily after McKinley had treated the crowd at the West Hants Club to a brilliant exhibition of shotmak- ing. TALL MEN—Three members of the St. Louis Hawks basketball team arc shown signing in Friday afternoon at the Custer Inn. The Hawks had just arrived in Galcsburg for last night's St. Louis-Cincinnati Royals game. Shown from left arc Gerry Ward (6-2), Bob Duffy (6-4) and Phil Jordan (6-11). Hawks Top Big O, Royals A last-ditch surge gave the St. Louis Hawks a 119113 victory over the Cincinnati Royals at the Galesburg High School gym, Friday night. The contest was the second annual pro game sponsored by the Ralph M. Noble Post of the American Legion. After Oscar Robertson, all- league star for the Royals, had tossed in two free throws with 2:20 left in the contest to knot the score at 107-107, the Hawks broke loose for eight straight points to secure the triumph. John Barnhill, St. Louis guard, made gooi on a three - point play to start the ball rolling in the Hawk outburst. Charlie "Cliico" Vaughn followed with a bucket before Barnhill came through with another three- point maneuver. The Hawks had an early lead, but the Royals had things pretty much their own way for most of the second quarter and part of the third period. Robertson's paid of charity tosses with 44 seconds remaining in the first half gave Cincinnati its biggest lead of the contest, 53-46 Furthermore, the Royals led by as much as five points with 8:13 left in the third period. The left-handed firing of slick Len Wilki s picked up the slack for St. Louis, and the Hawks wont George Chevalo Looks Ahead To Clay After Dejohn Fight Yesterday's Stars By The Associated Press PITCHING — John Tsitouris, Reds, shut out St. Louis for second straight time, limiting Cardinals to two hits in 3-0 Cincinnati victory. BATTING — Mike Hershberger, White Sox, collected four singles and homer, driving in three runs in each game, as Chicago clinched second place in American League by sweeping doubleheader from Washington 11-2 and 7-1. K.O. Average BROCKTON, Mass. (UPI) — Rocky Marciano hammered out the best knockout average among heavyweight champions: .878 for 43 kayoes among his 49 straight professional victories. LOUISVILLE, Ky. (UPI) — Fresh from an upset 10-round decision over Big Mike De John, rugged George Chuvalo made with some bold talk today about the fellow he's scheduled to fight next, top-ranked heavyweight contender Cassius Clay. "Cassius Clay can talk all he wants," Chuvalo said, "but in a showdown I think I can knock him out—if the referee gives me a chance." It was the kind of remark that may prompt Cassius the prophet to change his prediction to an earlier round when he will stop Chuvalo. Confronting Chuvalo at a press conference last Tuesday, Clay told the 26-year-old Toronto, Ont., native, he would fall in five. Being perfectly impartial, Clay gave De John the same word. The conference was to announce that Clay, who did not deign to attend Friday night's fight, would meet the winner. Contracts for the bout were to be signed today in the Louisville office of promoter Bill King, who put on Friday night's card, too. King said the Clay-Chuvalo go will be Nov. 8 in Louisville's Freedom Hall. As for Chuvalo's remark — "if the referee gives me a chance" —it was a sharp barb directed at the third man in the ring Friday night, Don Asbury. Even though he won, Chuvalo, an 8-5 underdog, beefed about Asbury's officiating on three counts. He said lie couldn't understand] Asbury's scoring of the match. The referee had it a 49-49 draw, although both judges, Kenny Pastor and Tom Nuckles, gave the decision to Chuvalo by a wide margin. It made the victory a majority, rather than unanimous, decision. Asbury commented that Chu­ valo was guilty of "dirty tactics" throughout the bout and that he penalized him for this on his scorecard, although he did not advise the judges to do likewise. Chuvalo, 211 1 /£, established a clear superiority over De John, 206%, in the last five rounds, having him down twice in the sixth and in constant danger of being knocked out by the clouting Canuck's powerful left hooks. The United Press International scorecard gave Chuvalo a 47-40 margin. The former Canadian heavyweight champion now has a record of 25 victories, seven losses and two draws. For De John, the defeat was his 12th in 59 bouts. He's fought one draw. ahead, 75-74, on a Barnhill deadeye with 3:32 left in the third quarter. After a sec-saw battle for most of the final stanza, the Hawks took care of things in the final two minutes of play. Bob Pcttit, slightly off his mark from the field, still managed eight field goals and 12 charity tosses to take scoring honors with 28 points. Robertson followed Pettit with seven goals and 13 free throws for 27 markers. Following the top two were a pair of hot-shooting Hawk guards, Barnhill and Wilkins, who tallied 20 and 22 points, respectively. Jerry Lucas, who was scheduled to make an appearance for the Royals, did not dress for the contest because of a throat infection. By TED MEIER Associated Press Sports Writer- Have the halcyon days really returned for the Chicago Bears— once the awesome "monsters of the Midway" in the National Football League? Sunday may provide the answer when the unbeaten Bears tangle with the Detroit Lions in the Motor City. The NFL also has St. Louis at Pittsburgh, Baltimore at Green Bay, New York at Philadelphia, San Francisco at Minnesota, Dallas at Washington and Los Angeles at Cleveland. In the American League there arc two games Saturday night- Oakland at New York and Houston at Buffalo. On Sunday. Kansas City is at San Diego and Boston at Denver. The Bears, who dominated the NFL back in the 1940s, have beaten the champion Green Bay Packers and the Minnesota Vikings with Bill Wade in the starring role. George Halas' Bears have won .seven of their last eight league games, including five of their last six 1962 games. The Lions, beaten last week by Green Bay, will have to execute a sharp about-face to stop the new "Monsters." A victory would keep the Bears atop the Western Conference. The Cleveland Browns and St. Louis Cardinals, tied at 2-0 for the lead in the Eastern Conference, may part company after Sunday's games. The Browns, with Jimmy Brown tearing off huge chunks of yardage as of yore, figure to rip the winless Los Angeles Rams. The Cardinals, however, go up against a tough Pittsburgh Steeler outfit that drubbed the New York Giants 31-0 last week. Jim Taylor and Tom Moore have the Green Bay attack back on the beam after a season opening defeat to the Bears and the Packers are favored over Baltimore. The Colts have lost Ray Berry, who suffered a dislocated shoulder.

(AP) - The 2,521-mile marathon relay from Los Angeles to Detroit droned through desert heat toward the Grand Canyon of the Colorado today. A crew of 16 runners, in groups of four, was slowly eating up the miles toward the Motor City to point up the desirability of Detroit being host for the 1964 Olympic Games. Each runner covers five miles is picked up by his bus, and a teammate replaces him. After the group of four has completed its 20 miles, another bus comes alongside, and another crew takes over for 20 miles. All the runners are experienced distance men, but the 106-degree heat in Los Angeles, when they startd at 11 a.m. Friday, made the first leg to San Bernardino on the edge of the Mojave Desert an exhausting one. It was after o'clock and dusk by the time the first leg of 60 miles was completed.
