Galesburg Bows to Canton In 19-6 Illini League Tilt Starting Saturday night was delayed because the Canton bus broke down in Fairview, marking the second straight week that a Galesburg game has been held up. Last week the Streak bus had troubles en route to the Peoria Woodruff contest. Strong on Ground Costly mistakes by the Streaks and a savage Canton running game, which more than tripled GHS in yards gained, were the contributing factors to Galesburg's downfall Saturday night. Danny Stewart, who was a marked man in the Canton defensive plans, led the Streak attack. Alternating at fullback and quarterback, Danny gave a game performance after injuring his shin in first half action. However, the highlight of the game as far as Galesburg was concerned came late in the fourth quarter when Louie Waller took a Canton kickoff and raced 70 yards for the only Streak touchdown. He bobbled the ball at first but recovered quickly and was off to the races. Wind and a chilly rain swept the field and chased a number of fans to shelter late in the first quarter. However, it didn't scare the visitors who scored their first touchdown as Jack FrizHenry recovered a fumble in the end zone just as the period ended. Jim Franzonei made it seven for Canton with the kick By JOE MORRISSEY Canton's Little Giants, blossoming into an Illini Conference grid power after playing the role of league doormat for years, asserted their authority Saturday night at Lombard Field in a 19-6 win over the Galesburg Silver Streaks. It was the third victory of the season for the unbeaten Little Giants and their second conference triumph. This puts them in a deadlock with defending champion Richwoods for the league lead. For Galesburg it was a third consecutive frustrating loss and left the Streaks on the bottom of Kic Illini heap with an 0-2 mark. and this later proved enough to win. Galesburg had the deepest penetration in the second quarter reaching the Canton 16, but was thrown back and eventually lost the ball on downs. Again in the third period the Streaks drove deep but couldn't keep the march going. A bad pass from center by Galesburg on a fourth down situation led to Canton's second touchdown. Tackle Mike Barnes made the recovery on the Streak 10 and a few plays later Mike McCoy passed to Doug Whitmsii for the score. With two minutes remaining to be played Canton got its final score with quarterback McCoy going over on a keeper play. This climaxed a 60 -yard Little Giant drive. Waller tallied on the ensuing kickoff to put the Streaks in the scoring column. STATISTICS Canton Galesburg First Downs 18 Rushing 17 Passing 1 Totals Yds.

FOR LOANS $25.00 to $800.00 SEE FRANK CARSON GALESBURG STATE LOAN CO, 31 North Kellegi Dial 342*5191 port this afternoon and will be the honored guests at the Knoxville homecoming game with Corpus. Christi Friday night. Fittingly enough the game will be played on the athletic field which was named after the former Blue Bullet coach in recognition of his many years of dependable and inspiring leadership. Stamps, who now resides at Cannon Beach, Ore., led many teams and individual athletes to wide acclaim during his coaching stint that lasted a quarter of a century. His teams had a virtual monopoly on the Knox County Track and Field championship, winning it 18 times. Honors Galore Stamps-coached cinder squads also won the Little Six title three times and the old Military track meet once. He directed four Knoxville basketball teams to Knox County Tournament crowns and won the Little Six Conference cage crown three times. His football teams captured Little Six championships in 1932 and 1934. During his 25 years of coaching he produced many outstanding athletes. A few of his greats were Dean Woolsey, one time holder of the national indoor mile record; Gabby Boynton, former star athlete for Knox College, George Donaldson, an all-midwest conference cage star at Knox; Ray Woolsey, state pole vault champion; Ray Charles, ex-Si- wash grid great; Dick Goff, onetime Midwest conference hurdle champion for Knox. Sporting Gesture Sportsmanship was almost a byword with Stamps and there is one story about him that exemplifies this point. It seems that Knoxville was competing in a track meet and one of the opponent 's hurdlers was having a difficult time. Stamps gave a few pointers to the frustrated trackster and before the year was over he was beating Knoxville's best. Stamps was a firm believer in winning and disliked losing as much as any man. However, one rule he always followed was to win like a man and to lose like a man. During his coaching career at Knoxville Stamps assumed many duties, and responsibilities, directing football, junior varsity and varsity basketball, cross country and track. It was under Stamps' reign that Knoxville High School received the nickname of Blue Bullets. Clad in the traditional blue, the 1941 team was so fast and aggressive that they were described as hitting the line like "bullets." Such a name was appropriate for a team coached by a cannonball. The Knoxville Letterman Association conceived the idea of bring Stamps back "home." The plan was immediately endorsed and supported by fans and local merchants. Although he and his wife reside in Cannon Beach, Stamps now teaches school in Warrenton, Ore. Loop Brass Tourney at Spot Bowl The sixth annual Galesburg Association and League Officers Tournament was held Saturday and Sunday at the Spot Lanes.

Monday, Sept. 30, 1963 13 Knox Defeated By Grinnell In Midwest Conference Play Knox made a game of it for three quarters Saturday afternoon, but it didn't quite get the job done in a 35-14 setback at the hands of the Grinnell Pioneers on Willard Field.

The next time the Pioneers got their hr-nds on the ball, they drove 63 yards in 10 plays with fullback Joel Goirlman taking the hall over from the three with 2:58 loft in the first half.
