It was a big night for Coach C. C. Van Dyke's charges who had failed in three previous attempts to enter the victory column. After the visitors scored in the first few minutes of play, the Streaks dominated play com* pletely. The welcome triumph was also the first in Illini Conference play for Galesburg which has dropped two league encounters. The locals have little time to rest on Saturday night's laurels, since they travel to Peoria Thursday for a game with powerful Peoria Central. It was the third loss of the Reason for the Red Raiders who came into the game with a 1-2 record. They are winless in the Illini Conference, competing in just two loop contests thus far. Start to Finish Fullback Danny Stewart Ignited the fuse for Galesburg when he sprinted SO yards on • kickoff return with 4:55 remaining ta the first quarter. The final Galesburg .score came when. reserve halfback, Tom Smith, intercepted an East Peoria pass and raced 68 yards to paydirt. This, was the second touchdown of the night for Smith who did an excellent job of broken field running in his final scoring sprint. After their touchdown drive which covered 51 yards in the first few minutes of play, the Red Raiders were unable to move consistently against the rugged Galesburg defense. Halfback Jay Barnhart, 200-pound senior, led the East Peoria attack along with quarterback Lyle Almasy. "Halfback Mike Nena sparked the visitors opening drive by returning the kickoff 46 yards to the East Peoria 49. After three East Peoria firstdowns, Almasy passed to Barnhart for four yards, and a TD. The kick was blocked. Almost before the East Peoria cheers had died down, Stewart grabbed the kickoff on the 20-yard line and went the rest of the way to even the count at 6-6. Galesburg's extra point try was also' blocked. The deadkttk existed until midway to the second quarter when quarterback Jim Cat* lln sneaked over the two-yard line. He pat the Streaks on top at a 1X4 count. Efforts to convert again failed. Geae Denisar set the stage for the drive by recovering a fumble. Midway in the third period, Galesburg added to its lead when Don Johnson sprinted 18 yards for the TD. Mike Davis split the uprights on the conversion and the Streaks were out in front 19-6. With 9:38 left in the final quarter, Smith scored his first touchdown of the night when he scooted around end for four yards. The extra point attempt was blocked but the Streaks enjoyed a comfortable 25-6 margin. To add insult to injury, Smith picked off one of East Peoria's desperation passes in the final minute and eluded several would- be tacklers in his spectacular 68-yard scoring jaunt.

The Latrobe, Pa., muscleman proved he was "back on the strick" Sunday when he won the year's richest tournament at the Whitemarsh Valley Country Club by a stroke over Lionel Hebert. Palmer, who will lead the U.S. team against Britain in the Ryder Cup matches at Atlanta next weekend, overcame a double bogey on the 14th hole to finish with a winning aggregate of 281, seven under par. Arnie said he fell "absolutely fast asleep" and hit the ball out of bounds over a snow fence on the 14th. He then had to hit another ball, thus losing two strokes from his big lead over Hebert, slamming Sammy Snead and Canadian Al Balding.

Halas' Changes Bring Results in NFL CHICAGO (AP) - Old Men usually find it difficult to change their minds, But owner-coach George Halas is an unusual old man and has no qualms about making abrupt switches. He switched in several directions Sunday and as a result kept his beloved Bears undefeated with a come-from-behind 10-3 victory over the Baltimore Colts in the National Football League kept the Bears on the ground except for seven pass attempts of which six were completed including a 44-yard combination pass-1 run manuever to Ronnie Bull. It provided the game's only touchdown and a victory for the Bears. Bukich also was told to switch from a long count to a short count. "I figured the Colts and probably the rest of the league had caught up with the long count," so Jim Beam's on first in Illinois The Favorite Bourbon of People in Illinois Who Enjoy Good living! smooth, light Kentucky straight bourbon that fills your leisure moments with pleasure, Taste it.

Their attempts to go in for another touchdown failed as they moved the ball to the Baltimore nine. Twice earlier rookie Bob Jencks had attempted and failed to boot field goals from the 44 and 28. Now Halas again switched. In came Roger Leclerc, a failure as a three-point kicker last year. Leclerc calmly booted the ball between the uprights from the 17 for three insurance points.

Well into the third quarter against Baltimore, Wade's previously successful formula proved a failure. So Halas, the 68-year- old NFL pioneer, switched. He yanked Wade, threw in Rudy Bukich for the first time this year, and came off with 10 points in the final quarter for a fourth straight victory which kept the Bears in first place in the league's Western Division. That wasn't the only switch employed by Halas. Instead of con- 1 centrajting on passing, Bukich ing Halas was to employ. After j say I'm a switcher," laughed the Bears took a 7-3 lead on the' Halas.
