r A mold Says Golfers May Trainin ATLANTA (UPD - U. S. Cap. tain Arnold Palmer thinks the British may be over-training for the Ryder Cup matches and that unless they slacken off his team "may have an easy time." Palmer emphasized that if the British rest today they could be a tough opponent when the matches get underway at 9 a.m., EDT, Friday. But he noted they have been playing up to 27 holes daily since Sunday and could be stale when it counts. "I'm leaving it up to our play- ers to set their own pace today/* noon today their respective two- Palmer said. He said if some feel a somes from Friday's matches, nine-hole tuneup is all; There are eight Scotch four- fine by him. But he j somes lined up for Friday.

"It's better to pace yourself. I know what our people can do now and they know what they need." Both Palmer and John Fallon, the non-playing British captain, plan on two-man British teams with each team using only one ball. Saturday, there will be eight four-ball matches with low man winning each respective hole and Sunday there will be 16 singles matches. This means a total of 32 during the three-day af- to make public around; fair with a point given for each match won and a half point for each tie with 16Vi points needed to win the solid gold cup. The United States leads 11-3 going into the 15th biennial matches and is an odds-on favorite to repeat this year with the likes of Palmer, U.S. Open Champion Julius Boros, Gene Littler, Billy Casper and Dow Finstenvald in its lineup. Other members of the U.S. team are Dave Ragan, Billy Maxwell, Johnny Pott, Tony Lema and Bob Goalby. The Americans experimented with a variety of shots and a variety of alternate ball combinations Wednesday to give Palmer a chance to make up his mind how he wants to pair them Friday. He and the other Americans insisted that this U.S. team has more spirit and desire than one would normally expect to find in a tournament of this kind in which these pros who usually play for big money are playing strictly for glory. the Rebound Buckeyes May Be Undoing Of Best Laid I Mini Plans By PHIL THEOBALD Staff Writer If only until Saturday, Illinois owns a share of the Big Ten Conference lead. Led by fraternity brothers Ron Fearn and Mike Dundy, the Illini eclipsed Northwestern 10-9 Saturday for their second win in as many tries this fall. Coach Pete Elliott's charges shutout California 10-0 on Sept. 28. Champaign's champagne atmosphere may be dampened, however, after Saturday. Ohio State, once again a contender for the crown, hosts the Illini that afternoon in Columbus. Illinois 9 credentials going Into the contest are impressive; OSU's are beyond even the mildest reproach. In eight quarters of competition this season, the Buckeyes have yet -to give up a point. NON-COMMITTAL—Oklahoma coach Bud Wilkinson grins as he comes out on the field after refusing to confirm or deny a copyrighted Tulsa Tribune story that he will resign and run for the IL S. Senate on the GOP ticket. With Wilkinson is an unidentified nf»n snuad member. UNI FAX i 393 yards Illinois has ground out in defeating two opponents. He has gained 117 yards. Wheatland also led in that department as a sophomore in 1961, but was ineligible last season. Sophs Impressive A pair of sophomores, halfback Sam Price and quarterback Fred Custardo are second and third in the ground gaining statistics. These two have combined for a total of 160 yards. Custardo also boasts a nine for 16 completion record when Illinois hopes to take to the air. Senior Mike Taliaferro has connected on four of 11 aerials but Draft Not Likely to Make Powers of Colt, Met Clubs "With a 17-0 conquest of Texas A&M and a 21-0 victory over Indiana going for them, the wards of Woody Hayes appear to be Fearn has been on the launching a tough nut to crack.

"Balanced, opportunistic and specialist Plankcrhorn heads the select list of Illini who have broken into the scoring column this fall.

When fall practice got under way, ATO brothers Fearn and Dundy were lost somewhere in the fourth layer of Illini football talent. The two seniors were not long in climbing to the top and now have starting assignments sewed up tight. Dundy played a leading role In the opener by virtue of two Interceptions and Fearn got his chance a week later* striking through the air for Illinois' lone touchdown against the Wildcats. Dundy then halted a late Northwestern march with a crucial Worrontion. Senior fullback Al Wheatland stands as rushing leader in the Illinois holds a 442-282 advantage overall but has been overshadowed, 275-196 on passing. The Illini have made up for this deficiency by throwing Golden Bear and Wildcat runners for a combined total of 113 yards lost rushing while picking off five unfriendly passes. The loss of tackle Bill Minor comes as a blow to Illinois fans. Minor suffered a broken bone in his right foot against Northwestern. He'll be out for a month and will be sorely missed since he was the big man in the Illini rush of opposing passers. A lew more surprises and these Illini just might be favored some Saturday. Gordie Howe To Receive 2 Awards Tonight DETROIT (AP)-Prolific-scoring Gordie Howe will receive two awards tonight, then skate in quest of new accolades as the Detroit Red Wings open their National Hockey League season with the Chicago Black Hawks. NHL President Clarence S. Campbell will hand the 35-year-old Howe two trophies—the Hart, for being the league's most valuable player last season, and the Ross, for topping all scorers in the 19621963 campaign. Howe won both awards five times before. His next goal is the career scoring record of 544 goals, set by Maurice Richard, now retired from the Montreal Cana- diens. Howe needs only five more goals to surpass Richard. He figures he'll do it early this season, his 18th season with the Wings. Announces Match LONDON (UPD — Promoter Jack Solomons' office announced Wednesday Sammy McSpadden will fight featherweight champion Sugar Ramos at Wembley's Empire Pool Oct. 2 in an over-the- weight bout. CINCINNATI, Ohio (AP)-The Houston Colts and the New York Mets get a chance today to pick up some new players—but chances are even this won't help them much. Both teams again finished at the bottom of the National League standings and the eight established clubs agreed to help them by letting them buy some more players. The Mets and Colts were set up in 1961 through a player draft and today's deal will be similar. Each of the older clubs has listed four players whom the newcomers may buy for $30,000 each. Yes, but which players? Their names have not been announced, but few are likely to qualify as stars. One of the men who does know the names — General Manager Bo Belinsky Signs Contract Early Again LOS ANGELES (UPD — Unpredictable hurler Bo Belinsky of the Los Angeles Angels continued to live up to his character and became one of the first major leaguers to sign his 1964 season contract. The sophomore southpaw, who compiled a 2-9 won-lost record last season with the Angels and spent part of the season in minor league "exile," telephoned Angel General Manager Fred Haney 'or an appointment Wednesday and promptly inked next year's pact. The signing served to nip any talk of trading the erratic pitcher and came only three days after the end of the World Series. George Weiss of the Mets—does not seem greatly impressed. Weiss, who will get first choice of players in a conference telephone call this afternoon, said Wednesday night the draft "might be what you'd expect. It's not going to put us in the first division." Weiss said he might buy a couple of players—he wouldn't name any possibilities—but added "that's an offhand estimate. I still have some calls to make. I want to get hold of some people who know the physical condition of some of these players. We've had enough of that sort of thing." Some of the Mets' and Colts' original draftees did not turn out to be too sound of wind and limb. The way this year's plan will operate, a club can close its list after one of its players has been chosen. But it does not have to, and as many as 32 players may be drafted at the price. Wilt Gets Only 26 Wan Defeat Lakers STOCKTON, Calif. (AP) - Wilt Chamberlain got only 26 points but was joined in the double figures by five teammates as the San Francisco Warriors downed the Los Angeles Lakers 105-97 in an exhibition National Basketball Association game Wednesday night. 11 In a Row PHILADELPHIA (AP)-Speedy Count won his 11th straight race in taking the $9,075 Penn's Wood Grand Circuit harness trot feature Wednesday night at Liberty Bell Park. Fraley Still in Shock Associated Press Announces Midwest All-America Team Linebackers Featured on Elite Squad CHICAGO (AP)—Those brawny linemen who catch attention with savage linebacking dominate the Midwest's first All-America football rollcall. This Associated Press board to- area s All-America screening day took heed of such Notre Dames Bob Lehmann, Iowa's Wally Hilgenberg and Purdue's Wally Florence an<J centers Ken Bowman of Wisconsin, Butkus of Illinois and Frank Marchlewski of Minnesota. The forte of all these stout charging chaps is crashing ball carriers to the turf with neatness and dispatch. That is the name of the defen sive game today, unfortunately for the front-liners whose work in stripping blockers often goes un seen and unsung. The board also cited Minne sota's 250-pound Carl Eller anc Michigan's 242-pound Joe O'Don- neli at tackle and ends Chuck Logan of Northwestern, Dan Drexler of Minnesota, Matt Snor ton of Michigan State. Jimmy Jones of Wisconsin and Jim Kelly of Notre Dame. Prime backfield performers list ed were Northwestern quarter back Tommy (Gun) Myers, na tion's No. 3 passer, halfbacks Marv Woodson of Indiana, and Paul Warfield of Ohio State, and Wisconsin fullback Ralph Kurek. Board member Dick Cullum of the Minneapolis Tribune observed that Myers is being defensed better than last season, but said the Wildcat sharpshooter might have been a hero if some of his passes weren't dropped in Northwestern's 10-9 upset by Illinois. Bert Bertine of the Champaign- Urbana, 111. courier also lauded Myers for completing 17 of 32 tosses for 208 yards despite Illinois' "harassing rushers." The 237-pound Butkus, who made 19 tackles against the Wildcats, now has turned in two exceptional games. Against California, in Illinois' opening 10-0 victory, Butkus also starred on offense. Although Wisconsin has been idle two weeks after downing Western Michign and Notre Dame, sportcaster Mike Walden of Milwaukee's WTMJ lauded the Badgers' "workhorse" Kurek; pass-hooking end Jones, and hard-tackling center Bowman. fullback Fight Results By The Associated Press TEANECK, N.J.—Jose Torres, 161, New York, outpointed Don Fullmer, 158, West Jordan, Utah, 10.

The Black Hawks defeated the Rangers 3-1 and tonight move on to Detroit to help the Red Wings open their season. Wednesday night's Ranger game marked the debut of Reay as Black Hawk coach.
