Minnesota Threat to Illinois 11 CHAMPAIGN, lU. (AP ) Coach Pete Elliott will put his undefeated but once-tied Illinois football team on display before a homecoming crowd of some 85,000 Saturday against tough Minnesota. Having scored only two victories In the two previous seasons, the Illini have a record of two triumphs and one tie for the 1963 campaign and hope to use Minnesota as a stepping stone to a solid position of contention for the Big Ten title. Illinois defeated California and Northwestern before battling powerful Ohio State to a 20-20 tie in Columbus last Saturday. Minnesota opened the season with a 14-7 loss to Nebraska, bowled over Army 24-8 and bowed before Northwestern li-8 last week. The Illini are currently ranked seventh in The Associated Press poll and are slight favorites to remain undefeated. This is the 31st game in the series, with Minnesota holding a 17-12 edge and one contest ending in a tie. However, the Gophers have won only once at Illinois and that was in 1961. The Illini have put together a strong defense bolstered by linebackers Dick Butkus and Don Hansen. In senior Mike Taliaferro and sophomore Fred Custardo, the Illini have a potent one-two quarterback punch, well supplemented by the running of sophomores Jim Grabowski and Sam Price and the power thrusts of fullback Al Wheatland. Illinois will have to set up two defenses for Minnesota. The Gophers have a passing threat at all times when Bob Sadek is at quarterback and were impressive against Northwestern, when Larry Peterson took over and marched them 75 yards to a touchdown on the ground and then ran for two points and an 8-7 lead.

(UPI)Roosevelt Raceway's $150,000 Messenger Stakes has attracted the world's fastest pacer for its eighth running, Nov. 2. Overtrick, who established the mile standard Of 1:57 1-5 for half- mile tracks, was entered in the pace for three-year-olds Thursday. Clear-Cut lead in Big 10 May Be Elided Saturday CHICAGO (AP)-^Outfight hold on top spot In the Big Ten football title race should be determined Saturday by Wisconsin's clash at Iowa. The winner will move into the lead with a 2*0 record. A tie would turn the No. 1 position over to Illinois—if it defeats Minnesota. An Illini victory In their homecoming engagement Would build a 2-0-1 record. Ohio State with 1-0-1 leaves Big Ten competition to Invade Southern California. The, Bucks and Illini fought to a 20*20 standstill last week. Michigan State and Michigan also tied at 7-7. A tie counts half game won and half lost in the standings. Completing the conference schedule, Indiana (0-3) is at MSU (0-0-1) without the services of ace halfback Marv Woodson and Purdue (0-1) is at Michigan (0-0-1) for a regionally televised game. Northwestern is host to upset- minded Miami of Ohio, which knocked off the Wildcats 25-14 in 1955 and last year surprised Purdue 10-7. Wisconsin, unbeaten for the season and ranked No. 2 in The Associated Press poll, is a touchdown favorite. The game could develop into an aerial duel between Iowa's Fred Riddle, who set a Big Ten record of five touchdown tosses against Indiana last week, and Badger southpaw Paul Brandt. The Michigan-Purdue and Ohio State-USC games are rated tossups. , Illinois is favored by only three points over the twice- beaten Gophers, who lost their Big Ten start last week 15-8 at Northwestern. The seventh-ranked Illini may need a consistently effective aerial attack to overcome the stubborn Gopher defenses. Illini running strength has been established much better than their aerial arm thus far. Rice Lake Not To Be Opened SPRINGFIELD, Dl. (AP) Rice Lake public hunting area near Banner will not be open for duck hunting by permit this season, the Illinois Conservation Department said Thursday. The lake was drained partially to permit vegetation to grow but drought has prevented adequate refilling. Veteran Guard Retires LOS ANGELES (UPI) - The winless Los Angeles Rams suffered another damaging blow to their already fading National Football League fortunes when veteran guard Harley Sewell announced his retirement. Sewell, who was on the injured waiver list with a neck sprain, will finish the season as a Ram scout in his native Texas. Investigate Weight Angle In Fatality BALTIMORE (UPI) -Weigh- in inspectors Leon Yarneth and Phil Jachelskl were scheduled to appear today before the grand jury investigating the ring death of boxer Ernie Knox. Yarneth and Jachelskl are considered key men in the investigation which is concentrating on a mysterious discrepancy of 25 pounds in two reports on the boxer's weight. Knox of Baltimore^ 26, was knocked out in the ninth round by heavyweight Wayne Bethea of New York at the Baltimore Coliseum last Monday night. He died Wednesday morning from a blood clot on the brain. At Monday's weigh-in, before the fight, Knox's weight was announced as 178 pounds. Bethea's figure was 205. But the grand jury investigation was touched off Thursday when the state medical examiner's office disclosed that Knox's body weighed only 153 pounds at Wednesday's autopsy. Umps Unionize But League Still Has Control CINCINNATI (AP)-National League umpires may have set up a union, but the league office remains in complete control. "It was made definite and clear there would be no change whatever in the jurisdiction of the league office in administering all the affairs involving the umpire staff, as in the past,'* league President Warren C Giles said Thursday after a meeting with three directors of the newly organized Association of National Baseball League Umpires. The association's purposes include improving the umpire retirement plan, changing the rotation of umpires assigned to work the World Series and All- Star game, and determining whether all umpires should share in World Series money.

Palmer told reporters before teeing off that an aching right shoulder may force him out of the tournament. He had a par 71 on the first 18 hole round. UNIFAX Geiberger Takes Spotlight From Favorites in Tourney READ THE WANT ADS! LAS VEGAS, Nev. (AP)-Golf's overpowering Arnold Palmer and Jack Nicklaus ranked in the also-ran class as a little- known California professional, Al Geiberger, led the way into the second round of the $70,000 Sahara Invitational Tournament today. Palmer, troubled by chronic shoulder aches, trailed by four strokes and Nicklaus by eight as the field swung toward the 36- hole point of this sixth annual event on the PGA autumn circuit. The 26-year-old Geiberger, whose only official PGA tournament victory was registered just one year ago in the Ontario, Calif., Open, shot a 35-32—67 opening round Thursday. One shot back as play was resumed, and the sponsors hoped for no rain, were Art Wall Jr., Lionel Hebert and Gay Brewer. A cloudburst hit the Paradise Country Club course with a quarter of the field still playing. Art Heyman Good But No Savior REED'S SELF SERVICE SHOES 328 East Main St (Former O^co Location) OPEN MONPA1TAND FRIDAY n* . rw». Other Days Until 5 Except 'Till « Sat. NEW YORK (AP) - "This boy," said New York Coach Eddie Donovan, "is not a savior. "He is a good basketball player and is going to be a very good pro, after he makes some adjustments, but he is not a savior." Donovan made the remarks just moments before Art Hey* man, collegiate Player of the Year last season, made his professional debut Thursday night with the Knicks. Donovan proved to be a prophet. Heyman proved to be a very good basketball player, finishing with 19 points and often serving as the floor leader. But he was not a savior. The Knjcks, who finished in last place in the Eastern Division of the National Basketball Association last season, lost again, 115-113, to the new Baltimore Bullets, nee the Chicago Zephyrs. In Cincinnati, the long-time champion Boston Celtics edged the improved Royals 93-92 for the Celts' second straight vic- Eight players were tied at 69, including tournament veterans Don January and Ted Kroll, British Ryder Cup member George Will and Canada's George Knudson. Geiberger, club professional at San Diego's Carlton Oaks, knocked off four birdies with nary a bogey in taking the lead. Palmer is still bothered by his bursitis condition. Nicklaus quite abruptly was three over par on the first three holes, thanks mainly to a double bogey on the second hole. Announces Schedule CHICAGO (UPI)-The Loyola (111.) University basketball squad, the defending National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) champions, will be the target for 25 upset-minded teams this year according to the Ramblers' schedule released Thursday. Loyola will be the prime attraction in Philadelphia's Quaker City Tournament during the Christmas holidays. Billy Daniels Wears Mark Of Zora MONTREAL (UPI) ~ fifth, ranking heavyweight contender Billy Daniels is the latest fighter to wear "the mark of Zora." That's Zora Folley, sharp-hit' ting counter-miticher who fates as the "spoiler" of the heavyweight division on the strength of victories over such as Doug Jones, Mike DeJohn, Henry Cooper and Eddie Machen. In this case "the mark" may ny^n that Daniels is through, Julius Isaacson, his manager, said today that he is considering advising Daniels to quit the ring. The cause was the 31-year-old Folley's 10-round and unanimous decision over Daniels on Thursday night during which Daniels suffered several cuts over his left eye. Isaacson said Daniels apparently has lost his desire to fight and has suffered eye cuts in several recent bouts. A crowd of 1,200 saw Folley take the fight on the scorecards of all three ring officials as follows: Tony Bergeron, 49-44, Harry Schulman, 47-43, and Kim Reagan, 48-38. Folley, hoping for a "money fight" with contender Cleveland Williams, now has won 69 fights, lost six and fought two draws. Daniels, 25, has lost four of 22 professional bouts. Rodriguez Predicts He Will Triumph NEW YORK (AP)-Luis Rodriguez, the 8-5 favorite, predicts he will stop undefeated Wilbert (Skeeter) McClure within seven rounds of their 10-round television fight at Madison Square Garden tonight. The former welterweight champion from Cuba and Miami Beach, Fla., never has been rated an authentic banger even though he has 22 knockouts to his credit. But two things have made Rodriguez, 26, more confident than usual. One was his seventh round kayo of Denny Moyer, the strong-jawed Portland, Ore middleweight contender, last August. The other is McClure's classic, standup style of boxing. "If I can knock out Moyer, can knock out McClure, too, said Luis. "Then, I like the way McClure boxes. Nice and straight. I set him up." "I think he is taking me too lightly," said McClure, winner of all of his 14 pro fights, six by knockouts. "Perhaps I can teach him a lesson." McClure, 24, is ranked as the No. 7 middleweight contender by the WBA. Pro Hockey " By The Associated Press No games Thursday or Friday Saturday's Games Boston at Montreal Detroit at Toronto Sunday's Games Montreal at Chicago Toronto at Detroit Boston at New York Committee lo Pick Olympic Site For 1968 BADEN-BADEN, West Germany (UPI) - The International Olympic Committee will vote tonight on the site of the IMS Olympiad and it is expected that Lyon, France, will get Che designation. Michigan Gov. George Romney, however, was confident that Detroit would receive strong consideration. "We've got a lot to offer and I think people will be impressed by our layout," Romney said Thursday after viewing Detroit's huge exhibit. "It will be tough, but exciting." Other cities in contention for the Olympic site are Buenos Aires and Mexico City. There was a possibility that the Detroit delegation might make a deal with Buenos Aires whereby the losing city on the first ballot would shift its support behind the other. Prior to the voting, which will be conducted among 60 delegates, representatives of the four cities each will have 45 minutes to present their qualifications before the committee. Strengthening the Lyon bid was a petition by a 13-member Afro-Asian bloc that the IOC hold the 1968 games in a city "which will avoid a long and difficult journey." The petition said that the "financial means" of the Afro- Asian National Olympic Committees were "very slender." Only one of the 13 nations which signed the petition, Egypt, has a vote in choosing the site. Result: With the season less than 48 hours old the Knicks were again in last place, lVi games back of Boston. A savior still was needed. "I can't say I was disappointed in the game," Heyman, a 6-foot*5 product of Duke said. "But it sure wasn't my best game. I missed too many, but those guys make you miss." He hit on eight of 24 shots and demonstrated he can drive with the pros as well as hook and jump. Now, about those adjustments; "It's as much mental as physical," Donovan said. "It's a challenge and a strain on a kid coming in this league- It takes the right mental attitude. "Look. In college he played on Tuesday and Saturday- Here, He's got Dischinger tonight, and a West tomorrow and a Robertson the day after that and a Sam Jones the night after that." "Sure, it's a tough league," Heyman said. "But then, I ex- I pected it to be tough." ! '25 to 'BOO !

ROYAL OAK, Mich. (AP)Dick Radatz, the Boston Red Sox relief giant, drove from Boston to his home here Thursday unaware that he'd been named the outstanding second- year player in the American League. "Gee, I didn't know that," Radatz said Thursday night. "Say, that's a real honor...quite a thrill." The 26-year-old Royal Oak fastballer was voted the AL's top sophomore performer of 1963 in the annual Associated Press poll. Radatz won 15 games, lost six and saved 17 others for the seventh place Red Sox. He recorded 162 strikeouts in 123 2-3 innings. The 6-foot-6, 235-pound Radatz —nicknamed The Monster—especially was glad that his 1963 record topped his previous season when, as a rookie, he won nine and lost six. "I didn't want to have people think my first year was a fluke," Radatz said. "I wanted to have two good seasons back to back to prove I was no flash in the pan. Kelso Set To Run at Aqueduct By The Associated Press Two gold cups plus a couple of sizeable checks will be presented in the winners' circles at Aqueduct and Hawthorne Saturday, and there's no truth to the rumor that the name Kelso already has been inscribed on one of them. Mrs. Richard C. duPont's Kelso is a prohibitive 1-10 favorite to gallop off with his fourth straight Jockey Club Gold Cup at Aqueduct, but the Hawthorne Gold Cup has the making; of a better horse race. Both are $100,000-added affairs. Kelso, who has won seven major stakes in a row this year, may have four rivals in the two- mile Aqueduct headliner being run for the 45th time. Crimson King Farm's Crimson Satan is an early 8-5 choice for the 1V«- mile Chicago gallop which closes the Hawthorne season. F. Eugene Dixon Jr.'s Will T Rule, Harbor View Farm's Garwol and Mrs. R. L. Dotter-s Guadalcanal are among Kelso's opponents. Guadalcanal was second to Kelso in last year's Gold Cup, a whopping 10 lengths behind. Kelso, Garwol and Guadalcanal pack 124 pounds, with 119 for the 3-year-old Will I Rule. Kelso's rider is Ismael Valenzuela. The two horses expected to give Crimson Satan the most trouble among the 10 entries are Fred W. Hooper's Admiral's Voyage and Sunny Blue Farm's Admiral Vic. Crimson Satan has top weight of 128 pounds, with 122 for the two Admirals. Willie Shoemaker pilots Crimson Satan. READ THE CLASSIFIEDS! Oops-Wrong Ball RUSSELLVILLE, Ky., (AP) J. W.
