Coach C. C. Van Dyke's charges, fresh from Saturday's 31 -6 conquest of East Peoria, face tremendous odds in tomorrow night's contest. The Lions, boasting a 4*0 season record, are rated "Peoria's best" by many observers. There are those who do not agree with this rating, casting their votes for the always rugged Manual Rams. However, no one could seriously deny that Central is an awesome and versatile gridiron power. For Galesburg it will be the second Thursday game in Peoria this season, having played Woodruff on this "off night" two weeks ago. Such scheduling is necessary at times with five Peoria schools using the stadium for their home field. Display Offense The Streaks are now 14 for the season, losing to Richwoods, Woodruff and Canton before winning over East Peoria last week. Galesbarg's offensive display against the Raiders, reputed to have .i strong defense, was impressive. VanDyke stated that he was well pleased with the Streaks' effort against East Peoria, adding that "this is the way I expected them to look from the start.' 9 The Galesburg mentor had special praise for the work of junior quarterback Jim Catlin who has been replacing the injured Jim Conner. Conner, suffering from a fractured hand, is expected to be out for at least two more weeks. VanDyke also cited Galesburg's splendid defensive play as a major factor in the triumph and JIM CATLIN will be operating at quarterback again Thursday night when the Galesburg Silver Streaks travel to meet the powerful Lions of Peoria Central. Jim has done an excellent job since stepping in for the injured Jim Conner. A. J. Foyt Suspended For Action INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - A. J. • * • . .« .

Henry Banks, USAC director of competition, ordered the suspension Tuesday for "misconduct considered/ detrimental to USAC and organized racing." He sent telegrams to Foyt at his home in Houston and at San Angelo, Tex., where Foyt has been running tire tests. Banks' action was based on a report from Tommy Nicholson,. USAC Eastern Zone supervisor, who said Foyt struck driver Johnny White while White was still strapped in his car after a heat event at Williams Grove, Pa., Saturday. Banks said his suspension would remain in effect until reviewed by the USAC executive committee, within a week or 10 days. The committee could put Foyt on probation or suspend him for a definite period or indefinitely and could impose a fine, with or without probation or suspension. In another case, Banks disallowed a protest by Don Branson of Champaign, 111., that followed a 100-lap race at the Terre Haute Fairgrounds last Sunday. Branson, who was leading when he ran out of fuel on the 99th lap, complained that too many laps were run before the start of the race, while an alternate start- and tackle John Holmes. Starting Backs Teaming up with Catlin tomorrow night in Galesburg's starting back field will be halfbacks Fritz Menke and Terry Autmon and fullback Danny Stewart. On defense, Tom Ekstrom will be at safety and Don Johnson at halfback. Johnson is also scheduled to see action on offense. Starting in the line for Galesburg will be Stinson and Davis, ends; Barry Schumann and Holmes, tackles; Maze and Gene Denisar, guards* and Durbin, center. On defense, Gene Phillips will go in as a linebacker and Carl Brodic at guard, while Steve Goad will play either end or linebacker. Big Triumph Central, bolstered by the return of 20 lettermen this fall, won a big game last Friday. After trailing strong Peoria Spalding 8-6 at halftime, the Lions moved out to a 20-8 triumph. They are now leading the Mid-State Eight Conference with a 3-0 mark. The Lions are big and fast and strike through the air as well as on the ground. Chuck Newmann is one of the leading quarterbacks in the state and Bill Reising, who plays the lonesome end in Central's T attack, is an outstanding flanker. Kickoff time tomorrow night is set at 8 o'clock. MONMOUTH - The Monmouth College varsity football squad will be seeking its first win of the season Saturday as it plays Beloit College before a partisan Homecoming weekend crowd at Monmouth. Monmouth Coach Joe Pelisek expects the Midwest Conference game to be a close one, pitting a stingy Beloit defense that has limited opponents to an average of 131 yards per game against a rapidly improving Monmouth offense. Monmouth is 0-3 with losses to Cornell, 21-20; Ripon, 35-0; and Grinnell, 16-7. Beloit is 14-1 with a victory over Knox, an 8-7 loss to St. Olaf and a 12-12 tie with Carleton. Pelisek has labeled the game a "must" for the Scots. "We're looking for a winning season, and need this victory to be able to reach this goal," he said. The Scots, who ran against Grinnell and passed against Cornell and Ripon, are expected to field a balanced offensive attack against Beloit. The Buccaneers, with all but three offensive starters and four defensive starters back from the squad that Monmouth edged past last season, 7-6, are rated as "vastly improved" by Pelisek. "But we're also constantly improving as our 14 sophomores get more experience," Pelisek pointed out, predicting "a whale of a game." Sidelight of the Homecoming contest will be a duel between Monmouth's Dennis Deegan and Beloit's Frank Meci for the top spot among conference punters. The Monmouth sophomore and the Beloit junior lead league punters with averages of 44 yards per kick. Starting quarterback for the Scots will be William Taylor, a sophomore from Aurora, 111. ect Torch Irish Seek (jalesburo Register -Mail To Arrive in Chicago Soon Little Six Scalp When in its natural jungle habitat, the Tiger is • beast of cunning and stealth. GALESBURG, ILL., WEDNESDAY, OCT. 9, 1963 the Rebou PAGE 33 Bukich Leaves To Save Wade and Bears F j By JOE MORRISSEY Sports Editor "Rudy Bukich now pitching for the Chicago Bears," might have been an appropriate announcement Sunday afternoon at Wrigley Field. Bukich saved the day for the Bears just as Ron Per- ranoski has done many times for the Los Angeles Dodgers and Lindy McDaniel for the Chicago Cubs. Now in his ninth year in the National Football League, Bukich has spent most of his time in the "bullpen." However, he was ready when needed against the Baltimore Colts Sunday and steered the Bears to a 10-3 come-from-behind victory. With regular quarterback Billy Wade unable to get the Bears rolling, Rudy came on in relief midway in the third quarter and completed six out of seven, including a spectacular touchdown pass to Ron Bull on a 44-yard play. Big Factors Wade who came into the game boasting a phenomenal passing completion percentage. He just couldn't get into the groove against the hard-charging Baltimore defense, connecting on only five out of 18 throws. These next two weekends find the Bears on the coast, playing the Los Angeles Rams Sunday and battling the San Francisco 49 'ers on^the following week. The Chicago schedule called for five road games in the first six encounters. If Coach George Halas' crew can sufvive their first six games without a loss, it will mean a lot in their drive for the western di- On the gridiron, whether the Tiger be of LSU or PONT1AC, III.

The torch was turned over to nine Sterling Newman High School runners in Pontiac by Pontiac High School runners who had carried it from Che no a. The torch was scheduled to arrive in Chicago today. Central Amateur Athletic Union officials said the torch relay was "back on schedule" after entering Illinois from Missouri eight hours ahead of schedule. r "We had to slow them down," an AAU spokesman said.

This schedule was set up weeks ago and the runners had made their plans to be in a certain place at a certain time. It was causing them inconvenience." York Township High School runners prepared to take the torch at Joliet and bear it to Chicago where University of Chicago Track Club members were to relay it to the Indiana state line. Among those assigned to carry it through Chicago were Willie May, a silver medalist in the 1960 Olympics at Rome, and Joie Ray, 69, the oldest runner in the nationwide relay and a former Olympic competitor. of 13.

When the dust settles in the rugged NFL races this may prove to be a big one for the championship-minded Bears who now boost a perfect record of four wins and no losses. Until Bukich's entrance Sunday their offensive efforts were completely futile against the stout Colt defense. Although the veteran Bukich, a product of Southern California, has seldom held down a regular berth, he has understudied for some of the NFL's top quarterbacks.

"Boros is playing so well it scares me," Palmer said Tuesday after the American team came off the East Lake Country Club course. They had just completed a practice round for the Ryder Cup matches with Great Britain, which begins Friday. The entire 10-man U.S. team appeared to be playing well and Palmer, the team captain, was beaming with confidence. He hesitated to make any predictions about the outcome of the three-day battle with the British but left no doubt that he thinks anything but a handy win by the Americans would be a major upset. Practice sessions continue today and Thursday and Palmer promised to decide by noon Thursday which combinations he would use in the various foursomes and four-ball matches Friday and Saturday.

The Tigers won easily over AlWood and VIT to get the season under way but haven't been able to click since. CCHS also had two non-conference wins in the books before floundering in the Little Six. Injuries to Dan Ridings and Lut Spinillo have Friar coach Jim Phalen running a comparatively new backfield through its paces in preparation for the game. Jim Conover, a 160 pound sophomore, will step into Ridings' fullback position if the latter is not ready to go. John Connors, also a sophomore but 20 pounds lighter than Conover, will spell Spinillo. If Corpus is to come home from Oneida with the victory, halfbacks Les Ehler and Allan Scott must be kept in check. Both figured highly in the early pair of wins and can be expected to cause concern among the Friar defense. Will Throw Quarterback Dick Edwards, like Ehler a senior, can and will throw if his ground game will not move. Junior fullback Larry Bennett, a junior at 180 pounds, is also available if crucial yardage is needed. , Corpus Christi can also move through the air. Quarterback Pat Prina has hit on 20 of 41 passes in his last two games, without, as coach Phalen nel leading to the dressing room says, "adequate protection in most instances. 9 * Corpus will once more be giving away about 25 pounds per man in the backfield.

But in the cold hard realm of conscientious preparation for a football game, Illinois won on 4 '98 touchdown pass." It was a 32-yard lateral-forward scoring pass from Fred Custardo to Ron Fearn to Jim Warre, and it was the spark that ignited Illinois to come from behind and upset the Wildcats. It also won for Illini Coach Pete Elliott, whose teams in the last two seasons had won only two of 18 games, honor as United Press International's college football "coach of the week." "That play was one of those things that worked," Elliott said. "It was nothing new, and not my idea. It came from the staff. Bill Take brought it up first and then our quarterback, Mike Taliaferro, suggested it. "We kicked it around, and worked on it Wednesday. And the way it ended up, we didn't fool the guy we figured to fool, Northwestern's deep back, Roland Wahl, but Warren got behind him anyway. It always set up for Fearn to throw to Warren, but it didn't make any difference whether Custardo or Taliaferro was at quarterback. "We had some other plays, and we won't talk about them. They didn't work anything like this. This is the only play we ever called with a touchdown in it, and I guess it got that 'flipper dipper' name because talking about it after the game I said something like 'that flipper-dipper thing', but it's '98 touchdown pass.'"
