Thursday, Oct 17, 1963 17 briars Dedicate t tela Silver Streaks Entertain Alumni, Capable Pekin By JOE MORRISSEY Both Galesbtfj.'g and Pekin football teams, who oppose each other Friday nigh* at Lombard Field, will be out to prove they are better than ttteir season records would indicate. Such an issue i will be resolved before a Oalesburg homecoming I crowd with kickoff time set at Plante Gets Big Ovation In Garden By TTVf MORIARTY UPI, Sports Writer Although Jacques Plante became accustomed to the cheers —and a 5/ew- jeers — during 10 seasons with the Montreal Canadians., he will never forget his Mat'iison Square Garden debut as a member of the New York F;angers. A nearly capacity crowd of 15,240 — the largest turnout for a Ranger home opener in 16 years — cheered the masked netminder to the rafters Wednesday night after he blanked the Detroit Red Wings, 3-0. It. was one of the greatest "ovations ever given a hockey |;>laver at the Gardens, and according to Plante it left him witfi "a chill between the shoulder blades." Plante, who was traded to the Rangers during the off-season after being virtually booed out of Montreal, totaled 34 saves in handing the Red Wings their first defeat of the new National Hockey League season. He was especially brilliant in the third period when Detroit twice enjoyed one-man advantages but failed to score. Phil Goyette, who came to New York in the same trade with Plante, whipped in a rebound shot in the opening period. The Rangers got their other two goals in the second session on shots by Val Fontayne. The Maple Leafs downed the Canadiens, 4-2, and the Black Hawks ripped the Bruins, 5-2, in Wednesday night's other NHL games. Third-period goals by Bob Nevin, Tim Horton and Ron Stewart carried the Maple Leafs to victory at Montreal. Horton's goal — a rising screen shot—broke a 2-2 tie and Stewart added the clincher. Stan Mikita scored a three- goal hat trick for the Black Hawks at Chicago. Bobby Hull and Pierre Pilote were the other Chicago marksmen. It was the third victory in four games for the Black Hawks and left the Bruins winless in four games.

READ THE WANT ADS! 8 p.m. The Streaks have managed just one win in five outings while the Chinks look a hair better in the won-and-lost col* umn with a 2-3 season effort to date. And each team has a valid reason to feel that its record does not quite tell the story. Both schools have faced rugged foes and in most cases have lost by scant margins. Galesburg has lost to Richwoods, Woodruff, Canton and Central while winning over East Peoria. The most lopsided score in a losing effort for the Streaks was a 19-0 loss to Canton while their only win came in a 31-6 battle with East Peoria. Pekin, which dropped a 14-0 decision to powerful Manual last week, has "just missed" on two occasions. The Chinks lost to Canton 13-6 in the last 32 seconds of play and dropped a 1412 squeaker to Richwoods. They defeated Argo 25-7 and bested East Peoria 14-0. Both Pekin and Galesburg have identical Mini Conference records of one win and two losses. At a time when football, like everything else, features specialists rather than "jacks of all trades," the Chinks boast a triple-threat quarterback in Rick Venturi. Rick, son of coach Joe Venturi, runs, passes and kicks and is a mite better than adequate in each department. To complement the versatile Venturi, the Chinks have speedster Tom Souhrada at halfback and a hard-running fullback in Duane Antrim. The backs operate behind a big and rugged line that has held its own all season. There will be few changes in the Galesburg starters Friday, with VanDyke listing a probable lineup in the forward wall as Larry Stinson and Mike Davis, ends; Barry Schumann and John Holmes, tackles; Don Maze and Gene Denisar, guards and Bob Durbin, center. Center Larry Foster, who has been on the injury list for the last few weeks, may see action tomorrow night. In the backfield the Streaks will have Jim Catlin at quarterback, Fritz Menke and either Terry Autmon or Don Johnson at the halfback posts and Danny Stewart at fullback. Tom Ekstrom will go at safety on defense while Louie Waller will be in at linebacker post.

Not Desire DES MOINES, Iowa (AP>~ Lou Procter can't beat his girl friend in tennis any more. But the 22 -year-old'Drake sen* ior can tie. his shoelaces, shuffle cards and block and tackle for the football team just about a *s well as he could before he lost his right hand in an industrial accident last June! "I figure a guy could play football without any hands If he wants to badly enough," the soft spoken guard said today. "I still favor the stump a little bit, but I don't think it affects my play very much." Coach Bus Mertes, who calls Procter "a great athlete with tremendous desire," agreed. "Lou is still a real good football player," Mertes said. "The loss of his hand doesn't bother him blocking or tackling, but he does have a little trouble protecting himself from blockers." Mertes said Procter made it clear when he came out for football practice that he wanted no favors, although he had been a starter for Drake the past three years. Procter has played about half the time in Drake's two victories, and in his one-handed debut against South Dakota he recovered a fumble, knocked down a pass, recovered a punt for Drake deep in South Dakota territory and generally was the defensive standout in a 23-0 triumph. The 200-pound physical education major helped Drake to a 21-12 conquest of State College of Iowa last Saturday. "I am learning to use an artificial hand and a hook for my normal activities," he said. "With just one hand I have learned to tie my shoes, shuffle cards and do all the other things I used to do with two hands. "But I am having a little trouble with tennis, which is one of my favorite sports. It didn't take me long to find out my girl friend can beat me in tennis now. I used to be right-handed, and it's taking me a while getting on to hitting left-handed." Veteran Leads Pittsburgh to Win in AFL By United Press International Claude LaForge, a nine-year veteran of the American and National Hockey Leagues, has started off his fifth AHL season on the right skate. LaForge, with a "hat trick" and two assists, powered the Pittsburgh Hornets into first place in the Western Division standings Wednesday night as the Hornets trounced the Providence Reds, 8-2, in the league's only scheduled game. While LaForge racked up DudK CALLING trophies are presented Dick Moothart, (right) of Washington, Iowa, by William T. Lodge, Illinois Director of Conservation following a duck callers' contest at Docks Unlimited meeting Wednesday evening. At left is John Liston, current Illinois duck calling champion. Lodge Sees Good Duck Season for State's Hunters Corpus Christi Meets Metamora In Tey Opener Coach Jim Phalen's football Friars come out of the dark Saturday. Corpus Christi ends its nomadic ways on the gridiron when Metamora comes calling to assist in the dedication of the new Tey Memorial Field, located, William T. Lodge, state conservation director, had optimistic words for both duck and goose hunters Wednesday night at the Eagles Lodge as he talked before a group of Western Illinois sportsmen for Ducks Unlimited. Several hundred attended the meeting and listened to Lodge explain how there are now two and a half times as many ducks in Illinois than there were at the same time last year. He also indicated that according to signs the mallard will be hitting their peak somewhere between Nov. 15 and Nov. 20. Lodge pointed out that the most urgent need at the present is a wet season, pointing out that "many hunting'areas in the state are practically dry." Rice Lake, a popular hunting area in this state, has been closed to hunting because of the dry weather, Lodge said, but will be opened immediately if the rains come. Rain Necessary Deer hunting also has been hampered by the recent dry spell, Lodge commented, but this is because of the fire hazard involved. However, as he spoke rain poured down outside, an indication that some of the hunting problems would be solved. Lodge explained in detail the five personal points in the evening, Louis Marcon was not too far behind. Marcon added to the Hornets' power by scoring twice and assisting once for three personal points. George Ranieri scored both goals for the Reds, one of which was unassisted. manner in which waterfowl seasons are set up. He said that in his opinion this year should have been a 3-duck, 50-day season. He dislikes the four duck limit, with only two mallards, because he says that the great number of duck hunters are unable to pick their species. The state director had words of praise for the work of Ducks PGA Tour To Offer Big Money DUNEDIN, Fla. (UPI) —The 1964 winter PGA tour will offer a total record purse of $766,000, President Lou Strong disclosed today. Strong said there will be 14 official or PGA sponsored events on the winter tour, one more than last season. He said that purses in six of the 14 events have been increased, three by $5,000 apiece.

(AP) Rugged Freeport and Waukegan, each envisioning a conference title, face major stumbling blocks this weekend on the Illinois high school football card. Danville, Marion and East St. Louis are favored to sweep past rivals on a slate loaded with OPEN FRIDAY NIGHT UNTIl 7:30 351 f. Miin S». DA VI PATTERSON, Mgr. - 343-3157 Galesburg conference activity Freeport's Pretzels, a strong defensive unit, take their 3-0 Big Eight record into a clash with dangerous Rockford West. The contest could be the most important of the campaign for both clubs. Rockford West is unbeaten in five starts and has won two and tied one in loop play. The only blemish is a 7-7 deadlock with LaSalle-Peru. Freeport has rolled up 84 points and yielded only six in its three conference outings. . The Waukegan Bulldogs, aim* ing for their first clear-cut Sub' urban League crown, battle /unbeaten Evanston for the ton position. Defending champion New Trier, still a Suburban Leajgue threat, is favored to get past Morton East. New Trier still must meet Waukegan and Evanston. In the Northwest Suburban, Lake Forest seeks to chalk up its 28th consecutive vijctory at the expense of Grayslako, which currently is tied with frake Forest at the head of the standings. Danville and Marian, two of the state's prep powers with unbeaten and untied'slates, are favored to maintain their pace in conference maty-hes. Dan­ ville travels to Lincoln for a Big 12 encounter and Marion engages jMount Vernon in a South Seven tilt. Blooming ton, also numbered among the undefeated and untied, needs a victory over Mattoon to stay close to Danville in the Big 12 chase. A Southwestern Conference game gives East St. Louis an opportunity to grab undisputed hold on first place. The Flyers, now tied with Belleville, play Granite City. Belleville goes outside the league to tackle Belleville Cathedral. . Peoria Manual and Peoria Central, unstopped leaders of the Mid-State Eight, strive to keep their records intact against Peoria Spalding and Richwoods. Spalding has won three games this season, but bowed to Central. In the North Central Conference, Princeton and Rochelle collide for the front berth in the Southwest Division and Kewanee, the Northeast Division leader, travels to Dixon. Mount Carmel, with an overall 5-0 mark for the season, seeks to strengthen its grip on first place in the North Egypt Conference. The opposition is provided by Car mi, holding down second place with Lawrenceville. Unlimited on the breeding grounds in Canada. He added that this is the best place to spend money for increasing the duck population. Present at the meeting were Don Cox, local president who presided; Fred Luthy of Peoria, Ducks Unlimited downstate chairman; Bob Erickson, Knox County Conservation officer, and other agents from nearby counties. Luthy talked briefly and told of the purpose of ducks Unlimited which is to put more ducks on the flyways. In a duck calling contest held last night Dick Moothart of Washington, Iowa, won first place while Dick Watson of Pekin and Kenley Cordts of Pekin took second and third, respectively. Judges were John Liston, state duck-calling champion; Mick Lacy, state goose of Burlington, Iowa, duck-calling title holder. A movie on duck hunting was shown. Three Is Limit WASHINGTON (NEA) - Federal law requires that in the hunting of migratory birds, sportsmen do not use a shotgun with a greater magazine capacity than three shells. Thunderbird Downs LAS VEGAS, Nev. (NEA) Thunderbird Downs will stage thoroughbred and quarter horse racing in Las Vegas each weekend through Nov. 3. Opening Round FORT WORTH, Tex. (NEA) — Texas Christian and Kansas opened the football season against each other for the 20th consecutive year. behind Immaculate Heart of Mary School on North Broad Street. The Saturday afternoon contest will be the first of two to be held on the new field this season. Chillicothe will be on hand Nov. 9 as the parochials close their '63 football season. Whipped into readiness by the Corpus Christi Quarterback Club, Tey field has been bedecked in the school colors of red and white in anticipation of the dedication game. Thus CCHS athletes—a baseball field is near completion and a track is planned—will finally be the "home" team after a long wait. Willard Field on the Knox campus, and more recently Lombard Field, have been the scene of all Friar gridiron matches up to now. When lights are installed at the new plant this summer, they will take up permanent residence there. Capable Foes Metamora, which dropped a 23-6 decision in the first Redbird-Friar meeting last fall, brings an impressive 4-1 record to town and has the tools to bring down the first Tey victory. . The Friars, however, are in peak physical shapt. and want this one badly. Although a non- conference game, the afternoon contest affords Corpus Christi the opportunity of improving its season slate to four wins in six tries. Quarterback Pat Priria, upping his season completion rec ord to 31 for 62 in the Friars' 13-6 victory' over ROVA last Friday, can be expected to rain trouble on the Redbird secondary. The shortest route between two points has proven to be in the air for Corpus with Jim Kennedy, Lai Spinillo and Dick Reavy on the receiving end. Kennedy made three circus catches in succession as the Friars denied ROVA in the waning minutes. Dan Ridings, Spinillo's running mate at halfback, has been given the OK to play and will return after a week's absence. The powerful 155 pound senior picked up nearly five yards per carry in his last game. Defensive standout Steve Mills, a sophomore, has been favoring a slight ankle injury but should be ready to go. Coach Martin Stromberger has a potent club which relies heavily on defense. The Redbirds have allowed but three touchdowns in five games. Rick Lotz, a 6'3", 180 pound junior quarterback, guides the Metamora offense. Junior halfback Mike Klepfer is the current rushing leader on the Woodford County team. Twins ends Ron and Don Schertz have been the favorite targets for Lotz when the Redbirds take to the air. Junior Roger Reynolds and senior Ralph Grevner fill out the Metamora backfield. Kickoff time is * p.m. By DON TRULL Baylor Quarterback <• My most important call would have to be the one I made as a sophomore in the first Gotham Bowl game on a cold afternoon in December, 1961, against a huge Utah State team at New York's Polo Grounds. Baylor had a 17-3 lead late in the second half. It was third down and six on Utah State's 38-yard line when I called a pass play off a quarterback bootleg. I felt that if we could hit on this pass and score, it would mean putting the game on ice. We had made several nice gains on it during the season, but never had it gone for a touchdown. End Ted Plum was split right. He went down and out, then broke straight downfiehj after faking the halfback. I hit him and he went all the way- It meant a safe margin for us and we went on to win, 24-9, Rain TOMORROW Time to Insula!* WHITE'S PHONE 142-0183 Repeat of SEMI-ANNUAL SELL OUT 3 pc MATCHED LUGGAGE SET Made by the Makers of Famous Lady Baltimore Fashion Luggage. 98 • Triple Ply Plywood • Washable Vinyl Coverings • Free Identification Togs • Full Size Pockets AvailtbU IN Blu«, Whit*, or Tan, May be purchased separately.
