Local Teams Keyed for Big Weekend Streaks in Homecoming; Knox Travels to Monmouth "Finally~A Place WeNowCanCattHome!" ||fglamorfl IttV&dcS In yean past, Corpus Christ! High School-without a regulation gridiron on Ha eampai-ptoy* ed all ita home games oil the old Willard Field at Knox College aid at Lombard Field. Judging from comparative scores, Pekin should rate the nod over Oalesburg in the Silver Streak homecoming game tonight at Lombard Field. However, as is usually the case, statistics are a bit incon distent In some respects and sort of refute the old theory that figures don't He, even though liars sometimes figure. Neither team has an irnpres Sive record, although the Chinks also get the nod in this department with two wins arid three losses to Galesburg's 1-4 mark. But both teams have challenging schedules, devoid of any gridiron patsies. In games played thus far by Pekin and Galesburg we find three common foes — Richwoods, East Peoria and Canton. Both teams lost to Richwoods and Canton and won over East Peoria, hence we mast turn to comparative scores to draw any conclusions. Chinks Have Edge Pekin would seem to have the bulge on the basis of their 13-8 loss to Canton as. against the Streaks' 19-0 setback at the hands of the Little Giants. The Chinks lost this contest in the final 1 32 seconds of play. Comparisons of the Galesburg and Pekin scores in games with Richwoods also gives a faint edge to the Chinks. Pekin dropped a 14-12 battle while the Streaks were beaten 13-6. However, a look at the scores when these two teams played East Peoria seems to shed a different light on the picture. Pekin had their troubles in a 14-0 victory over the Red Raiders while the Streaks romped past the East Peorians 31-6. In other games, Galesburg has lost to Woodruff 25-14 and dropped a 26-12 contest to powerful Peoria Central. Pekin was beaten by highly touted Manual 14-0 and won over Argo 25-7. Mistakes Costly Optimism was a bit high in the • i < Galesburg football camp this tfall, but so far the Streaks have been disappointing. Coach C. G. VanDyke cites costly mistakes — both mental and mechanical — along with the rugged schedule as major factors in Galesburg's poor record. Pekin boasts a big and rugged line that has been most stingy on defense this season. Even Manual's powerhouse attack had trouble sustaining a drive against the Chinks and scored both of their touchdowns on long explosive plays. On offense, Pekin is led by Rick Venturi, one of the most versatile backs in the state. Quarterback Venturi, son of coach Bill Venturi, runs, passes and kicks in true triple- threat fashion. Kickoff time is set for 8. Fight Results By The Associated Press MONTREAL - ZoA Folley, 209%, Chandler, Ariz., outpoint­ ed Billy Daniels, 193, Brooklyn, N.Y. 10.

Plan Pass, Punt and Kick Meet Galesburg area grade school boys from eight through 11 can pit their football skills against thousands of other boys throughout the nation in the third annual Punt, Pass and Kick competition which will culminate with a White House reception and an appearance at the National Football League Championship game for the top 10 winners. Sponsored nationally by the Ford Division of Ford Motor Company and the National Football League, the Punt, Pass and Kick Program—or PP & K— will be staged here by McCreery Motors, corner of Kellogg and Tompkins streets, as local cosponsors. Youths will be tested for their ability to punt, pass and kick (using a kicking tee) footballs on the same day as thousands ol other boys all over the country with warm-up jackets, football helmets and autographed footballs to be given as first, sec ond and third prizes for each age group, or four top Gales burg area winners in all. Scores throughout the state then wil be compared to determine the five top Illinois winners, and these scores compared to determine the most skillful eight, nine, 10, and 11 year old fledg ling football stars in each of the areas covered by the tele casts of the 14 National Foot ball League teams. Area winners and their fathers will receive all-expense paid trips to a National Football League game in their area, and will compete during half-time to determine the four top Eastern Division winners and four top Western Division winners. These eight boys will visit Wash ington and the White House, ac companied by their parents, and then will go to the site of the NFL Championship game, for half-time competition to determine the four National winners. Sandy Koufax, Gary Peters Win ERA Crowns NEW YORK (AP) - Left­ handers Sandy Koufax of the Los Angeles Dodgers and Gary Peters of the Chicago White Sox won the 1963 earned run championships in the Major Leagues, the final averages disclosed Friday. Koufax, a 25-game winner, captured the National League title with a 1.88 mark—the lowest in the circuit since Howie Pollet posted 1.75 in 1943. The Dodgers' ace allowed only 65 earned runs in 311 innings and pitched 11 shutouts—the big league high. Peters, who had a 19-8 record, topped the American League with a 2.33 average. He was the first AL rookie to finish on top in the ERA competition since Cleveland's Gene Bearden in 1948. Panther Punch PITTSBURGH (NEA)—Those closest to the Pittsburgh Panthers contend that they have their strongest team in seven seasons. The World's Finest Bourbon since 1795 •J PROOF KENTUCKY STRAIGHT BOUfiBON WHISKEY DISTILLED AN0 BOTTLED |Y Th| JAMES 8. BEAM DISTILLING CO., CLERMONT, BEAM, KENTUCKY . Knox and Monmouth Colleges talk turkey Saturday afternoon. Chances are good, almost certain in fact, that a heated discussion will erupt as the oldest football rivalry west of the Alleghenies is resumed at Monmouth College athletic field. This 75th renewal of the Scot- Siwash series will have little bearing on the Midwest Conference, race since both teams are located in the cellar with 0-4 records. An intense game, however, can always be anticipated when these two teams meet. Although the coveted bronze turkey, symbolic of victory in the annual contest, has adorned the Knox trophy case more often than not since its innovation in 1928, the Scots are rapidly closing in. The series stands at 38 wins for Knox and 29 for Monmouth, with seven games ending in ties. Coach Al Partin's crew lost the turkey in a 24-20 duel in 1961 and failed to regain it last season as the Scots waded to a 20-6 win in the mud. On the basis of scores against common opponents, Monmouth would have to rate the favor ite's role in this meeting. The fact that Knox has left the field of battle a loser 15 successive times also seems to point to a Scot victory. Favored or not, Monmouth will be hard-pressed to convince the Siwash Saturday. Advance notices have carried little weight since the two teams kicked the lid off the series in 1891. With the exception of senior end Arthur Buckley, the Scots will be full strength for the game. Buckley, bothered by a troublesome knee injury, quit the sport recently on the advice of doctors. Botthof Back Duke Botthof is expected to steer the Siwash offense with former Corpus Christi star George Shea handy if help is needed. Fullback Dave Eiss, along with halfbacks Don Harrington and Pete Holstrom, completes the Knox backfield. Monmouth Coach Joe Pelisek enters into the game with an attitude of caution. "Knox is a much tougher squad than its record indicates," Pelisek noted. He went on to say that Siwash lack of depth — a problem Monmouth has also faced — has no doubt worked against Knox in the unseasonably hot weather thus far this season. Two widely varied offenses will be on display Saturday. Monmouth concentrates primarily on a ground attack while Al Partin has his Siwashers taking to the air whenever possible. The turkey becomes a sitting duck following a 2 p.m. kickoff at Monmouth. For Dedication Although Corpus Christi won't punch the Little Six Conference timeclock this weekend, the Friars still have their work cut out for them. In addition to the dedication of a new field, Corpus Christi students and alumni observe [ ~~ • — their annual homecoming festivities Saturday. These two factors promise to offset any letdown on the Friars' part in the non-conference engagement.

Leading College Teams Put Lofty Ratings in Jeopardy By BOB GREEN Associated Press Sports Writer The nation's major college football teams shift their attention from cross-country feuding to backyard squabbles this weekend, but it just means a change to homegrown trouble for most of the ranked teams. Seven of the Top Ten teams have conference games scheduled Saturday, and all but one could be placing their high standing in jeopardy. Only bulky Mississippi, 2-0-1 or the season and No. 5 in the nation, ranks as a lop-sidetl fa- Brand New '63 CHEVROLETS • BUcaynts • Bel Air* • Impalas While They Last at BIG DISCOUNTS Big Tr»d«-in Allowances WEAVER-YEMM CHEVROLET 247 E. Simmons vorite against Tulane, which has scored only 10 points in losing four straight, in a Southeast Conference affair. The other ranked teams going against conference opponents- No. 1 Texas, No. 2 Wisconsin, No. 6 Oklahoma, No. 7 Illinois, No. 8 Georgia Tech and No. 9 Alabama — anticipate njuch tougher opposition. One of the big ones takes place in Little Rock Saturday night where the Razorbacks, 2-2, will try to stop mighty Texas, 4-0. Arkansas, co-favorite to win the Southwest Conference title in the pre-season picking, was shocked 14-10 at Baylor last week. Texas displayed a brutal ground game in knocking over Oklahoma 28-7 last week and taking over the nation's No. 1 spot. The Big Ten lead goes on the line in Iowa City where unbeaten Wisconsin takes on Iowa. They are tied for the top with H league marks. Wisconsin is 3-0 over-all and Iowa is 2-0-1. Another Big Ten match has I seventh-ranked Illinois, tied for third with a 1-0-1 league mark, at home against a Minnesota team that may be better than its 1-2 record would indicate. Oklahoma, now 2-1, opens its Big Eight play against Kansas, 2-2. The feature of the Southeast Conference schedule could be the test of Georgia Tech by Auburn. Bobby Dodd's Engineers are eighth in the nation and 3-1 over-all, but Auburn comes into it unbeaten in four games and a definite threat. Another big one has ninth- ranked Alabama, 3-1, vs. Tennessee, 1-3, at Birmingham. Third ranked and unbeaten Pitt travels to West Virginia. The Mountaineers are 2-2 and could be primed for an upset. Among the other ranked teams, No. 4 Ohio State, 2-0-1, visits Southern California, 2-2. Navy, 3-1 and tied for 10th, plays Virginia Military, \-%>\ at Norfolk. Northwestern, 3-1 and sharing the No. 10 spot, is at home against Miami of Ohio, 2-1-1. CARTHAGE, 111. (UPI) Carthage, the smallest school in the College Conference of Illinois, owns the longest college football winning string in the nation today. But the Redmen may see their record of 19 consecutive victories matched by Earlham of Richmond, Ind., this weekend. And the Redmen can't do anything about it. Carthage, a school of 450 students, defeated Illinois Wesleyan 42-19, on Oct. 7, 1961 and hasn't lost a football game since. Last year; the Redmen posted their first perfect season in the college's history and won the CCI football title. With three games left to play —all against loop foes—the Redmen had an open date in their s". .(•• •Mv?. t'.iis weekend while Earlham, a school of 1,000 enrolment, hosts Manchester Saturday gunning for a 19th consecutive win. Earlham has no conference affiliation. Carthage's schedule for the rest of the season calls for encounters with Augustana (3-1) Oct. 26, Carroll (3-2) Nov. 2 and Millikin (2-2) Nov. 9. Carthage coach Art Keller has a 73-24-2 record during nearly 12 seasons with the Redmen and has never posted a losing season. LITTLE SIX STANDINGS Aledo »-—3 Knoxville 3 Alexis 2 Corpus Christi 1 ROVA - 0 Abingdon 0 urday afternoon contest which will serve as dedication game for the new parochial layout. Hitching a ride on a Brink's Armored truck might be easier than crossing the Redbird goal line, if past scores are any indication. Metamora has given up but three TD's in five outings and has held the opposition scoreless three times. The Friars, with a 3-2 season record going into the game, will seek control of the air from the outset. Metamora also likes to throw and a wide open affair is promised. The ROVA High School band will be on hand for halftime ceremonies, which will be centered on both dedication and homecoming themes. The traditional bonfire is scheduled for tonight at Immaculate Heart of Mary School and a parade will wind from Corpus Christi High to Tey Field prior to the game Saturday. Kickoff time is set for 2 p.m. On the Move With the exception of a brief pause during the war years, Corpus Christi has spent its football history 'homesteading' on other fields. A six-man field behind the high school was used for a short time but was abandoned when the Friars re-entered into 11-man competition. Other Little Six teams also step outside the conference for games, all tonight . Knoxville treks to Carthage, Aledo is at Camanche, Iowa, Abingdon helps Bushnell-Prairie City celebrate its homecoming and Alexis hosts Roseville.
