This sort of sums up the feelings of Dodger manager Walt Alston (left) and coach Leo Durocher as they watch Los Angeles beat the Yankees 5-2 in the first game of the World Series Wednesday. Whatever trouble there might have been between the two was whisked away by Sandy Koufax's fastball. UNIFAX BULLETIN LOS ANGELES (AP)-The FBI today arrested Erwin B. Arvey, Chicago stockbroker and the son of Illinois Democratic leader Jake Arvey, on a charge of transporting more than a half-million dollars' worth of fraudulent securities across state lines. Arvey, 44, was arrested at a Beverly Hills hotel. A complaint had been filed charging him with interstate transportation of $550,000 in fraudulent General Motors Acceptance Corp. bonds. They said he put up 550 of the bogus $1,000 bonds Wednesday in applying for a $440,000 loan at a local bank. The FBI said Arvey's arrest is the latest in a series of investigations started in 1961, when the presence of counterfeit GMAC bonds was noted in banking circles here, in New York, Miami and Toronto, Canada. GMAC is General Motors' car-financing organization. The FBI identified Arvey as the son of Col. Jacob M. Arvey, political leader in the Chicago area. Mickey Mantle Lauds Sandy NEW YORK (UPD - Mickey Mantle, always quick to give credit where it's due, took h? hat off to Sandy Koufax today as one of the finest pitchers he has ever faced. "Everything 1 read about him was true," Mantle marveled. "And everything they told us about him also was true. Whatta pitcher! Still 1 don't feel too bad at what I did against -him. "He only fanned me twice. Carl Erskine once got me four times." Mantle not only ranks as a prime judge of good pitchers but also knows a long-ball hitter when he sees one because some of the tape-measure blows' he's belted never have been duplicated in all baseball history. The Dodger slugger he singled out for special comment was hulking, six-foot-seven Frank Howard, who started Wednesday's i trying to rationalize, decisive four-run uprising with an J before and eye-popping 460-foot double off the' too." center field wall at Yankee Stadium. Hard HK Ball "That was one of the hardest balls ever hit over me head," Mantle declared. "It wasn't exactly a high 1y, either. That ball was really traveling." Koufax, of course, was the Dodger player most of the Yankees talked about and he had everyone's respect from Ralph Houk right on down to the batboy. "You gotta give him credit," Houk said. "He's an extraordinary pitcher and he would have to be to strike out 15 of our hitters like he did." Then, as an afterthought, the Yankee manager added, "chances are we'll see him again." Houk didn't say it apprehensively; neither did he say it happily- It's only one game," he said, We've lost few, we ve won a One of the few Yankee players who wasn't completely overawed by Koufax* record-breaking performance was sophomore Tom Tresh, who spoiled Sandy's shutout with a two-run homer in the eighth inning. "I don't think he's going to strike out 15 the next time he pitches against us," Tresh said. "You gotta see any pitcher at least once before you really know anything about him." Not that Tresh was crowing about his homer or trying in any way to take some of the luster off Koufax' performance. "Don't get me wrong," he said "He's a terrific pitcher and he may even beat us again but I simply think we'll do better the next time out against him." Fight Results By The Associated Press TOKYO - Love Allotey, 130%, Ghana, stopped Yukio Katsumata, 132, Japan, 4. Considered Amputation Of Finger NEW YORK (AP) - Two Dodg. er team physicians said today they came within a day or two of having to think seriously about Amputating the forefinger of San* dy Koufax* pitching hand last year. But they said a new drug, or a combination of remedies, saved the finger and Sandy's career and no doubt made the Dodgers part of the show instead of part of the audience at the 1963 World Series. Koufax, who beat the Yankees in the series opener Wednesday, was disabled in the middle of the 1962 season by a circulatory disorder in his left forefinger. The flow of blood was reduced to a fraction of normal by constriction of an artery leading to the finger from the palm. At first the finger was so sensitive Koufax couldn't touch anything with it. Then it went dead. The Dodger physicians, Drs. Robert Kerlan and Robert Woods, called in Dr. Travis Winsor of Los Angeles, a specialist in circulatory disorders. Dr. Kerlan said an arteriogram "showed a rare condition — A clot in the deep ulnar arch, in the arteries in the palm of the hand." "But," Dr. Kerlan said, "the clot dissolved after several injections of a new drug. "If it hadn't dissolved, he might have lost the finger. There just wasn't enough circulation to supply it, and a finger can't live without blood." Dr. Woods said it would have been necessary "to begin thinking seriously about an amputation if the blood supply hadn't started to increase within 24 to 48 hours of the injections." Qalesburg Register-Mall GALESBURG, ILL., THURSDAY, OCT. 3, 1963 PAGE IB High School Put On Probation For Rioting CHICAGO (AP) — Hyde Park and Englewood high schools were placed on athletic probation Wednesday by the Chicago Board of Education as the result of a near riot at their football game in Stagg Field last week. The action followed revocation by the University of Chicago of an agreement for the use of Stagg Field for all future high school games. Other action by the board calls for barring all members of the two schools' student body, except participating players, from attending the next football game of each school. Under the probation ruling, any repetition of the Stagg Field inci dent at the games of either school will bring possible ineligibility for any Public lieague athletic activity.

Back through the golden years of the Yankees' World Series his tory they've had the Babe Ruth, the Lou Gehrig, the Joe DiMaggio, the Allie Reynolds and the Mickey Mantle who've proved just too much for the opposition to handle. But Wednesday it was the Dodgers who had the man who was just too much. He's Sandy Koufax, of course, and he manhandled the lordly Yankees in a way that left American Leaguers gaping. Other great pitchers have beaten the Yankees but nowhere in World Series memory is there an instance of a pitcher who so completely overpowered them. Koufax Took Command A 25-game winner with 306 strikeouts in 311 innings and a backdrop of two no hitters and two games in which he struck out 18 batters during his career, Koufax took command of the Yank ees like a big league pitcher would take command of a high school team. He struck out the first five bat ters to face him and nine of the first 12. After four innings the Yankees had hit only one fair ball. He blazed his fast ball past them. He confused them with his deep-breaking fast curve. And he made them look ridiculous with his change-up — thrown with the same motion as the high, hard one. This was supposed to be a match-up of star pitchers — Koufax vs. Whitey Ford, who started the game with a 10-5 World Series record. Frank Howard's 457-foot double, singles by Bill Skowron and Dick Tracewski and Johnny Roseboro's three-run homer gave the Dodgers four runs in the second inning and that was it. It was obvious the Yankees could not overcome such a handicap against Koufax and the brilliant left­ hander just kept mowing 'em down. Two Tough Innings Koufax had two tough innings —because he lost the pinpoint control of his curve ball — in the fifth and sixth. The Yankees put together three singles with two out in the fifth but Sandy fanned pinch hitter Hector Lopez to end that threat and they got two straight walks in the sixth with one out only to have Sandy retire Mickey Mantle and Roger Maris on infield pops. Tom Tresh hit a two-run homer in the eighth but by then Koufax was throwing fast balls for strikes and he quickly closed out the game. After the seventh, the crowd of 69,000 was cheering for Sandy to break Carl Erskine's mark of 14 strikeouts in one game, set against the Yankees in 1953. Koufax finally accomplished the feat for a new mark of 15 when he buzzed a fast ball past pinch hitter Harry Bright for the final out of the game, Bright stood there gaping — typical of a Yankee team that had run up against a man who was just too much. Bat Mark Of Maris' Dips Lower By BEN OLAN NEW YORK (AP) - Figuring the series: Roger Maris of the Yankees went hitless in four times at bat in the opener and his World Series average dipped to .184. The veteran outfielder has only 14 hits in 76 tries covering 20 Series games. Maris batted .267 in the 1960 Series, .105 in 1961, the year he hit 61 homers, and .174 in 1962. With a running time of two hours and nine minutes, Wednesday's was the fastest-moving opening game since 1948 when Johnny Sain of the Boston Braves bested Cleveland's Bobby Feller 1-0 in only 1 hour and 42 minutes. Here's a close look at the regular season records of today's probable pitchers: The Dodgers' Johnny Podres won 14 games, lost 12 with 64 walks, 133 strikeouts, 10 complete games, five shutouts and a 3.55 earned run average. The Yanks* Al Downing had a 13-5 record, 80 walks, 171 strikeouts, 10 complete games, four shutouts and a 2.56 ERA. When Carl Erskine of the Dodgers shattered the Series mark by striking out 14 Yankees on Oct. 2, 1953, he gave up two runs, six hits and three bases on balls—just as Sandy Koufax did Wednesday. Thirty years ago today, Carl Hubbell of the New York Giants pitched a five-hitter and struck out 10 to defeat the Washington Senators 4-2 in (he opening Series games. Mel Ott had four hits, including a home run, for the winners.
