Improved Illinois Has Chance for Loop Title CHICAGO (UM) - The Big Ten's title threats have made room at the table for Illinois. Illinois emerged from Saturday's 20-20 tie with favored Ohio State as easily the most improved football team in the league and one with as good a chance for the championship as highly-touted Wisconsin, Northwestern or Ohio State. Coach Pete Elliott, who has spent just about all of his Big Ten coaching career on the outside looking in, said he was "proud of the way his team played up a storm after we dropped 10 points behind in the second half." Elliott said he had no "flipper-dipper" play in mind, such as the one which produced the previous week's 10-9 victory over Northwestern. "We just iOn the Rebound* Secrist Gets References In Big League Job Hunt By PHIL THEOBALD Staff Writer With proper references in hand, there's always room at the top. Don Secrist, former Williamsfield High and Galesburg American Legion pitcher, is compiling these references in his personal bid to reach the heights of Major League baseball. Signed to bonus contract of an undisclosed amount in the fall of 1962, Secrist has given the Baltimore Orioles reason to expect returns on their investment. The rangy lefthander has just completed his first season in professional ball with Aberdeen, S. D. Secrist worked 69 innings for the Class A Northern League club and finished with a 7-0 record, for the most part in relief. Coupled with a 2.08 earned run average, this mark hints of bigger and better things for the 6-foot, 2-inch fastballer. Bothered by streaks of wildness while pitching for Williamsfield and the Legion, Secrist issued but 20 free passes this past season. His trademark throughout the area, the strikeout, was no less in evidence as he set down 65 batters via that route. He is currently attending Brown's Business College and is residing in Galesburg with his bride of less than a month, Donna. Next spring, of course, will find liim back at Aberdeen — or higher up the ladder, if decreed by the parent club. Fireman Role Secrist started but one game for the South Dakota club but proved invaluable when called in to put down opposition rallies. He ran up a 36-9 record here for the Legion, mostly in starting roles, but made the transition to the bullpen with little trouble. Asked if he would be hurling for Aberdeen next season, Secrist replied: "I think there's a good chance of a move. Houston has shown some interest and could get my contract in the upcoming minor league player draft." (Secrist was invited to try out before the Colt .45 brass last summer while the club was in Wrigley Field for a series with the Cubs. Bobby Bragan, now manager of the Milwaukee Braves, issued the invitation.) To illustrate the fast- moving pace of professional baseball, Secrist's contract was purchased hours later by Rochester, N. Y., Open Bowling Tonite 1:45 P.M. NORTHGATE 1I7S N Haiuteison St. Ph 342-1171 of the Triple A International League. When a question dealing with the differences in Legon and professional ball was asked him, Secrist noted that some of the fun of the game is lost when it gets to be a job. The competitive challenge, he agreed, remains even into the clubhouses of class A ball, which is just a stone's throw away from the big show. Area fans are well acquainted with the competitive spirit of the soft-spoken Secrist. His was a leading role in Galesburg's march to the Illinois Legion championship of 1962 and his very presence on the Williamsfield roster made the tiny community a threat to all comers on the prep circuit. Sam Andree, veteran manager of the Galesburg Legion team, and Dick Coffey were instrumental in guiding Secrist into the Oriole fold. Coffey was a territorial scout for the Baltimore club at the time of the signing. College Football Scores By United Press International Eait Army 10, Penn State 7. Boston U. 18, Holy Cross 6.

Saturday's deadlock left Illinois undefeated in three games this season and with a 1-0-1 conference record, Identical to Ohio State's. Wisconsin Downs Purdue Defending champion Wisconsin opened its conference campaign with a 38-20 romp over Purdue, sharing first place with Iowa, which defeated Indiana 37-2 in its league inaugural. Northwestern's Tom Myers changed from a goat to a hero in a twinkling, tossing two fourth quarter touchdown passes in a 15-8 victory over Minnesota, and Michigan tied Michigan State 7 - 7 before a crowd of 101,450 persons Illinois shocked the Buckeyes with a pass interception and a touchdown in the first period. The IUini yielded the edge to the Buckeyes later but were in front 20-17 with less than two minutes to play. Dick Van Raaphorst, who set a Big Ten field goal record of 48 yards last week, did himself one better by booting one for 49 yards with 1:53 remaining The kick gave the Buckeyes their tie Van Raaphoret's 49 - yarder was his fifth field goal of the season, tying the conference record set by Karl Holzwarth of Wisconsin in seven games and Skip Ohl of Purdue in six. The Buckeye "toe" has kicked his five in only three games. Sets Passing Mark Iowa's Fred Riddle also set a Big Ten record, throwing five touchdown passes in his team's homecoming romp over the Hoosiers. The Hawkeye defensive unit set up five scores by intercepting three passes and recovering two fumbles. Riddle's touchdown throws included a 76-yard bomb to Paul Krause. Wisconsin's southpaw quarterback Harold Brandt scored one touchdown on a sneak and passed for another. But Badger Coach Milt Bruhn was elated about a fullback "find" name of Carl Silvestri. Silvestri, normally a halfback, moved into the gap when regular fullback Ralph Kurek was hurt. Silvestri wound up as the game's biggest ground gainer with 86 yards in 14 carries. The Badgers travel to Iowa next Saturday. In other games, Minnesota is at Illinois, Indiana at Michigan State, and Purdue at Michigan. Northwestern is host to Miami of Ohio in one non-conference clash, and Ohio State meets Southern California the West Coast in another. Gqtesburg fteflistef'Mail,Gelesbufg, III.

(AP) Qualifying for the 12th annual North and South Seniors Golf Championship began today, with a field of about 350 golfers on hand to compete for the 32 spots in the championship match play. READ THE CLASSIFIEDS! By MARTIN LADER UPI Sports Writer The topsy-turvy world of college football plays no favorites and its "darling" of last weekend may prove the prize patsy next Saturday. Texas played a prime role in as upsetting a week as the collegians have ever experienced by knocking off Oklahoma, the top-ranked team in the country, 28-7. But the football very pos-'j sibly can bounce the other way when the second-ranked Longhorns face always-rugged Arkansas Saturday night. Only three members of the top 10 escaped unscathed from the weekend blitz, and this includes fourth-ranked Pittsburgh, which did not play. In addition to Texas, the only other winner among the elite was fifth-ranked Wisconsin, which routed] Purdue, 38-20. OSU Held to Tie Ohio State, the No. 7 team, got away with only its pride injured after being held to a 20-20 tie by Illinois. Third-ranked Alabama lost to Florida, 10-6, eighth-ranked Penn State fell before Army, 10-7, Southern California, the defending national champion and rated ninth this week, was topped by Notre Dame, 17-14, and lOth-ranked Nebraska lost to the Air Force Academy, 17-13. Navy, the No. 6 team, was a 32-28 victim to Southern Methodist on Friday night. Arkansas itself fell before the upset jinx, losing to Baylor, 14-10, but the Razorbacks were considered strong contenders for the Southwest Conference title in the pre-season analysis and they still are capable of creating an upset of their own. Should Bounce Back Oklahoma should recuperate next week when it opens defense of its Big Eight championship against 'Kansas at home. Relief: also appears in sight for Alptbama, Navy and Nebraska, all of whom meet comparatively weak foes next Saturday. Alabama takes on Tennessee (1-?,), Navy plays Virginia Military Institute (1-2-1) and Nebraska is at Kansas State (1-3). Pittsburgh, which has feasted thus far on three West Coast (Opponents, tests its powerful offense against traditional and bitter rival West Virginia. The Mountaineers have split four games this season but usually show their best against Pittsburgh. Wisconsin, favored to take the Big Ten crown, faces a severe challenge at unbeaten Iowa, Penn State will have its hands full at Syracuse and Southern California and Ohio State will collide at Los Angeles.

Lanphier 19, Griffin 13. Gage Park 31, South Shore 6. Phillips 14, Englewood 6. CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa— Coe had things pretty much its own way here Saturday afternoon. The Kohawks trundled Knox 54-0 to stay alive in the Midwest Conference title chase. Not a quarter went by that Coe failed to add a touchdown or two. For Knox, it was loss number four in as many MWC tries and the fifteenth consecutive setback over three seasons. Coe is now even after four conference games. Coe struck soon and with authority. Quarterback Rich Tosi threw 2 touchdown passes for 10 and 25 yards with but 4:57 gone on the clock before Steve Souder swept right end for another six-pointer. Steve Muller, who was on the scoring end of Tosi's 25- yarder, went around that same end for 43 yards and a touchdown minutes later. His run made it 27-0 when the first quarter horn provided coach Al Partin's crew with a temporary truce. Coe needed but 24 plays from scrimmage to roll up the first period margin. Knox, with regular quarterback Duke Botthof sidelined by injury, failed to register a valid scoring threat while the Kohawks were compiling their monopoly on points. After settling for single touchdowns in the second and third frames, the hosts sent Bill Johnson over from a yard out, and Bob Young intercepted an ill- aimed Siwash pass, returning it for 13 yards and the TD. A one-sided story is also told in the statistics. Knox was limited to but 20 yards on offense while Coe racked up 412 yards, 337 rushing and 75 passing. The winners came up with 23 more first downs than Knox. If the Kohawk offense had a field day, the Iowans' defense was no less inspired. The Siwash finished 18 yards in debt on 23 attempts at cracking the Coe line. George Shea, called to replace Botthof as sig- nalcaller, completed five of 22 passes for a total of 38 yards. The Coe victory marked the second straight season that Knox has dropped a lopsided decision to the Cedar Rapids crew. It was 34-0 last year at Knox Athletic Field. Carthage Wins 19th in Row CHICAGO (AP) - Carthage stretched its winning streak to 19—longest in the nation— and George Bork's passes kept Northern Illinois' record unblemished for the season in key downstate college football games. Carthage rolled to a 42-19 homecoming triumph over Illinois Wesleyan to take outright possession of the College Conference of Illinois lead. The defending champion Redmen, now with three straight CCI victories, exploded for 21 points in the final quarter in overpowering Wesleyan. Northern's Huskies, who open their Interstate Conference title campaign Saturday in a home game with Illinois State Normal, collected their fifth straight victory by edging Hillsdale, 19-13. Bork passed for one touchdown —giving him 18 for the season— and scored himself on a plunge. In all, Bork hit on 16 of 35 tosses for 199 yards. Carthage has an open date this week but three other CCI games are on tap for Saturday. North Park (0-3) is at North Central (1-2), Millikin (2-1) at Carroll (1-1). North Central scored in the first and last quarter to blank Millikin, 12-0. The touchdowns came on a 39-yard pass from Mike Vibral to Bruce Fulton and a one-yard smash by Herman Cooper. Carroll had to rally for touchdowns in the third and fourth periods to shade North Park 1312. A short plunge by Rick Beebe and a 10-yard scoring pitch from Sander Stagman to Bob Wolfe in the last two minutes were the payoffs. Bill Townson tallied the vital extra point. In the only IIAC game, Eastern Illinois scored all its points in the final quarter to down Illinois State 14-13 in a night encounter. It was Eastern's first triumph in 11 games. State (0-2) can expect another tough encounter Saturday at Northern. The only other IIAC game sends defending champion Central Michigan (1-0) to Western Illinois (1-0). In non-conference play, Northern Michigan smashed Central 19-0 Saturday.

Wolfson, the New York and Florida financier who has had unbelievable luck with his purchases of young horses, hit the jackpot again Saturday when Roman Brother won the richest purse in the history of New York rac ing. And Florida breeders are walking around in the clouds again, for Roman Brother was sold by the Ocala Stud farm last January at the Hialejah paddock sales to Wolfson for $23,500. Wolfson, who races in the Fla mingo and black silks of the Harbor View Farm* put up $10000 to make Roman Brother a supplementary entry to the 92nd running of the Champagne. The gelded bay son of Third Brother-Roman Zephyr, by Roman, obliged by taking charge near the head of the Aqueduct homestretch and/ romping to a 4%-length triumph in the $212,150 race. j John L. Rotz was the winning jockey and the* Wolfson entry, favorite of a crowd of 50,732, paid $3.90. It was the fourth straight victory for the unbeaten youngster, who was making his first stakes start against 10 rivals, including a stablemate, Count Bud. Roman Brother, who had earned $10,725 before the Champagne, picked up $152,150. It bettered the previous New York purse take- home of $149,695 earned by the California colt Warfare, who won the Champagne in 1959. MONMOUTH - Beloit, With a touchdown, extra point and field goal in the second period, trimmed Monmouth 10-3 here Saturday afternoon. In a display of strict defense by both teams, Beloit profited by a pass interference play in the second quarter when fullback John Kincaid plunged over from one yard for the touchdown. Quarterback Jon Goetzke added the extra point on a placement and kicked a 17- yard later in the same quarter. Jim Mock booted a three- pointer from 13 yards for the Scots' only score. A total of 10 first downs, seven for the eventual winners, were posted during the afternoon. Monmouth was limited to 57 yards on offense, while the visitors compiled 151 yards, almost entirely on the ground.
