14 Golesburg Register-Moil, GalesburQ, 111. Soturdoy, Oct 19,1963 Boston Threat to Eastern Division Leadership in AFL By BOB H0OBIN0 Associated Press Sports Writer BOSTON (AP)—A rejuvenated Gino Cappelletti and a changed Denver defense are two reasons Boston is threatening New York's Eastern Division lead in the American Football League. The Patriots defeated the Broncos 40-21 Friday night, sent their record to 4-3 arid edged to within 29 percentage points of the Jets. Cappelletti accounted for 22 points with a touchdown, four field goals and four con- Westmer Scores 20 to 6 Cornbelt Conference Win ALWOOD — Westmer downed Alwood by a 20 to 6 count here Friday night in a Cornbelt Conference game. A three-yard plunge by Dick Nash and an extra point by Ivan Houston opened the West mer scoring. Houston also scored later in the first half on a seven-yard dash. This left the score at halftime 13 to 0 in Westmer's favor. A 68-yard pass from Dick Stoltz to Dave Carey and an extra point by the same combination put Westmer ahead 20 to 0.

Quarterback Babe Parllli, healthy once more, credited the Denver change for his ability to complete 21 of 31 passes for 331 yards and two touchdowns. Talk persisted before this season that Cappelletti might be traded. "Two years ago I was on top," Cappelletti said. "Last year the defensive backs in the league improved and I didn't. A lot of times my timing was way off. Before this season I did a lot of work at getting quicker." Asked about Boston's biggest offensive show since the opener, Parilli explained, "Denver changed the defense. They used a lot of zone and 5-1 on pass defense when the Broncos beat us 14-10 out there. But Friday night they switched to one- on-one and we can beat anybody at one-on-one with Cappelletti and Jimmy Colclough. I guess they switched because they probably figured they'd catch us off guard." The rest of the AFL swings into action Sunday afternoon with San Diego at Kansas City in the key game. The Chargers currently lead the Western Division with a 4-1 mark and the defending champion Chiefs, 2-21, must win to stay in contention. The others have Buffalo, 2-3-1, at Houston, 3-3, and New York, 3-2, at Oakland, 2-4. The National Football League has a full slate of Sunday activity, with Green Bay at St. Louis in the big game. The Packers and Cardinals, each 4-1, hold second place in their Over 30 million people make bowling the top indoor participant sport in the nation. It's good to know that misery has company. In more than a few cases, bowling is like the weather—everyone talks about it but no one does anything, etc. Once a weekers, including yours truly, can't understand why the pins aren't more generous. Marion Ladewig, the bowling grandmother who has come into more green than gray with the advancing years, isn't at all perplexed by the game. She has earned in excess of $50,000 annually for a number of years. Don Carter of St. Louis also seems to have the game figured out. Carter, named "bowler of the year" for the sixth time last September, makes over $100,000 a year in tournament and exhibition appearances. His wife, Laverne, adds $25,000 annually to that amount. All of which helps to refute rumors that bowling balls, pins and lanes have a natural animosity toward everyone. The aforementioned tools of the trade are content to take out their hostility on those of u§ who bowl for the sheer enjoyment of it. (Should your recent scores be comparable to mine in any way, enjoyment might not be the word. Try agony.) If talent is lacking, other measures can be taken to bring about a relaxed feeling after a night of matching wits with the pins. Although kicking the ball return, uttering trite and derogatory expressions, sabotaging the pinsetters and wearing cleats on your bowling shoes might sound like excellent ideas, they aren't advisable. Put yourself in the pins' place. Time after time they are splattered around, scraped up, tossed into trays and stood at attention once more to be splattered around and so on. Not since the days of Babe Ruth have any pieces of wood gotten a worse deal. Being naturally sympathetic, a few of us can use that argument to explain our 135 averages. What's your excuse?

Valley Nips Astoria in WILCO Duel FAIRVIEW—The Valley Vikings scored a 13 to 12 come- from-behind victory over previously unbeaten Astoria before a homecoming crowd here Friday night. Astoria scored twice before Valley could break into the scoring column. A two-yard plunge by Don Parr opened the scoring in the first quarter. In that same quarter Jerry Wilson raced 70 yards with a punt for another Astoria touchdown. A one-yard plunge by Dewey Morse and an extra point by Jerry Woodall for Valley left the halftime score at 12 to 7 in Astoria's favor. With six minutes remaining in the final quarter P. J. Piatt hit paydirt from two yards out to give Valley the WILCO Conference victory. With five seconds showing on the clock, Astoria attempted to pull the game out with a ten-yard field goal, only to have it blocked by Valley tackle Mike Schulthes.

It was found that whether the animal was cooled in the field or brought from the field while still warm made little difference in the quality of the meat. Washing had little effect on flavor, but made a great difference in appearance of the meat. The study recommends that the carcass be cooled in the field overnight, if possible, then brought in, as soon as feasible and skinned immediately. After washing down with a hose, it was found best to let the carcass drip dry, which gives a smooth protective seal. Wiping dry with a cloth tends to introduce new contamination. The meat should be placed in controlled temperature, between 34 and 36 degrees Fahrenheit, to age. Aging made a greater difference in the flavor of the meat than any other single factor. Meat aged two weeks was rated higher in taste acceptability and was more tender than unaged venison. More than two weeks' aging caused the texture to become too soft and fine. Prolonged aging caused mold growth and dehydration, increasing waste. One week's aging was recommended for best flavor devel* opment. The wrapping of venison for freezing was found most important. Proper care requires a wrap that is moisture and vapor-proof and that the meat be protected against damage in the freezer by thickness Of paper or an outer wrap. Meat from animals two years old or younger was found more flavorful and palatable. Meat from older animals, although tougher, was found to be more juicy. Results indicated that the meat of the female was preferable to that of the male for flavor and texture. Cooking experiments showed that since venison contained little fat, it should be cooked in moist heat. For roasting, the meat should be placed in a hot oven (425 degrees) for 30 minutes. The meat should then be covered tightly or wrapped in aluminum foil for the remainder of the cooking process at 325 degrees. When the meat is cooked, it should be removed from the oven with the wrap or cover intact for 30 minutes to allow moisture that normally would escape in steam to be reabsorbed. Kelso Not Fair to Others NEW YORK (NEA)-Kelso, Mrs. Richard C. DuPont's six-year-old, is known as one of the coolest horses ever seen on a thoroughbred track. Carry Back is the opposite. Before the Woodward at Aqueduct, Mrs. DuPont's mother asked someone to point out Carry Back. As usual, Carry Back was lathered with nervous sweat. Mrs. DuPont's mother was outraged. "Those other horses are making the poor thing nervous," she said indignantly. "It's not fair for Kelso to be walking around so calmly and for Carry Back to be excited like that." 0 —12 e— 13 Bonny Bobby NEW YORK (UPI) - Bobby Thomson, whose dramatic home run won the 1951 National League playoff for the New York Giants, was born in Scotland and raised in Staten Island, N. Y. Mantle to Be Good as Ever in '64 NEW YORK (AP) — Mickey Mantle, the oft-injured star outfielder for the New York Yankees, is expected to be as good as ever when the 1964 baseball season opens. Mantle underwent Friday what Dr. Sidney Gaynor termed a successful operation for the removal of cartilage from his left knee. This latest notation on Mantle's injury card stemmed from the broken left foot he suffered in a game at Baltimore in June that kept him sidelined most of the season. Mantle is expected to remain in the hospital here for a week, then return to his home in Dallas for further rest. By January he will be able to start jogging. It Was Long Wait for TD ST. LOUIS (NEA)—In the fourth period of St. Louis' 5614 rout of Minnesota, Larry Stallings, the Cardinals recruit linebacker, hit the arm of Viking passer Ron VanderKelen. The result was an interception and a 21-yard touchdown return for veteran defensive back John Symank. "Half of those points belong to me," Stallings told Symank. But after learning that it was the first TD of Symank's seven-year career, Stallings readily conceded all six points to his teammate. Podoloff Tells Of Huge Fine On Baltimore NEW YORK (AP)-Maurice Podoloff has confirmed that he slapped a $25,000 fine on the Baltimore Bullets before he retired as president of the National Basketball Association. The fine, believed to be the highest ever levied in any sport, was disclosed Friday by the New York Post. Podoloff, contacted in Hartford, Conn, by the St. Louis Globe-Democrat, did not give any reason for the fine, but the Post story, bylined by Leonard Lewin, said it was "for attempting to sneak 6-11 Walt Bellamy under the table to the Los Angeles Lakers." J. Walter Kennedy, who succeeded Podoloff, said he had not been advised by Podoloff of "any such action that may have been taken by him before I took over the presidency." The fine is listed by the NBA as unpaid, the Post story said. The incident involving Bellamy, former star for Indiana University, occurred while the Chicago Zephyrs franchise was in the process o f being shifted to Baltimore last spring. No games were scheduled'in the NBA Friday night. Action resumes tonight with New York at Cincinnati, Detroit at Philadelphia, San Francisco at Baltimore and Los Angeles at St. Louis. uewrmmeu s±umm From Beginning BADEN - BADEN, Germany (UPI)-Delegates to the 60th session of the International Olympic Congress (IOC) agreed today that Mexico City had the 1966 Olympic games sewn up "almost from the start" and that Detroit virtually never had a chance. A "post-game" analysis of the massive vote that gave Mexico City Latin America's first Olympiad indicated that voters had made up their minds to "spread the Olympics around." Mexico City got 30 of the 58 votes cast, Detroit 14, Lyons, France, 12, and Buenos Aires 2. A high-ranking IOC official told United Press International "there was a strong desire to spread the games around. Most of the delegates felt the Olympics should go to Latin America as they've never had them before and it was just a question High School Grid Scores By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Chicago Area Sullivan 11, Wells 7.

U.S. Pat. Off.) By OSCAR FRALEY NEW YORK (UPI)-Fearless Fraley's facts and figures. Jimmy Brown, the jarring fullback of the Cleveland Browns, believes in giving a little and taking a little. Art Model, owner of the Browns, argues that when Brown takes a pass behind the line of scrimmage and goes all the way it should be classed as rushing yardage. Jarring Jim shrugs off the fact that it's passing yardage. "I'm all for giving the quarterback all the credit he can get," says Jimmy. "Then he doesn't mind giving me the ball 25 or 30 times a game." ... That way, James gets plenty of yardage both wa: t.... The scheduled opening of the New York World's Fair next year brings to mind that boxing's first televised bout was on the opening day of the 1939 World's Fair. Nova Flops Lou Nova, who was getting ready to box Max Baer in a big heavyweight bout, was signed by boxing publicist Irwin Rosee to face smoothie Patsy Perroni. "Nova wasn't in shape and couldn't hardly hold up his hands after the first round," remembers Rosee. "Mike Jacobs, seeing his big bout against Baer being ruined, jumped up and rang the ring bell like mad, ending the bout after 40 seconds of the second round. Thus ended boxing's first commercial TV bout" ... and it's a shame they can't do that with some of today's turkeys.

Sullivan scored on runs of three and 10 yards to offset touchdowns by the Green Dragons' Rick Murphy and Jim Hilligoss. Both Aledo six-pointers came in the second quarter. Murphy, the Aledo quarterback, went in from a yard out on a keeper before Sullivan swept right end to give the Little 'Six team a 12-6 lead. Sullivan cancelled that in the third quarter, however, and Aledo was forced to make a goal line stand at their own one-yard line before the gun. Aledo is now 3-1-1 overall and rests atop the Little Six with a perfect 3-0 slate. Continue Probe Into Ring Death BALTIMORE (UPI) - A Baltimore grand jury today expanded its boxing investigation beyond the death of Ernie Knox to include Maryland fights "for a number of years back." State Attorney William J. O'Donnell, acting under grand jury orders, today began impounding pertinent records of the Maryland State Athletic Commission for the grand jury session on Monday. Closed-door hearings by the grand jury Thursday night and Friday concentrated on Wednesday's death of boxer Knox from brain injuries suffered when knocked out at the Baltimore Coliseum Monday night by heavyweight Wayne Bethea of New York. Bethea weighed 205 pounds. Knox's weight at Monday's weigh-in was announced as 178 pounds, but when his body was weighed during Wednesday's autopsy, it registered only 153. The grand jury is investigating the possibility that Knox's death resulted from a mismatch between a light middleweight and a 205-pound heavyweight— and, if so, who was to blame? bers. The Russian bloc voted solidly for Mexico, a gain of eight votes, while the Commonwealth vote was split between Mexico and Detroit. "If the Russian bloc had voted for us, we 'd have gone to a second ballot and might have swung the games with the shift in voting," one Detroit delegation official said. "But we didn't have a hope without the Soviet group." But an IOC official disagreed. "It was nothing to do with the Russians," he insisted. "Detroit didn't have a chance despite that slick presentation piece which was the best we have ever seen." He added, "as a matter of fact, some of the IOC members were almost frightened by the very professionalism of it. We are very much an amateur group and it looked too fancy for some of our colleagues." May Cancel Seasons Due To Drought SPRINGFIELD, ID. (AP)-U- linois hunters were reminded Friday by the state conservation director, William Lodge, of his authority to cancel hunting seasons if drought conditions continue. Lodge announced that the Conservation Advisory Board at a quarterly meeting Thursday advised that Lodge would be justified in using his power if forest, wildlife, and recreational lands were threatened by fire. The director has legislative authority to adjust seasons except that he may not extend them beyond the outside limits set by the legislature. Duck hunting starts Nov. 1, but bow-and-arrow, deer, dove and northern zone squirrel seasons are in effect now. Pheasant, quail and rabbit seasons start later in November. The goose hunting season opens Sunday at sunrise except in Alexander, Union, Williamson and Jackson counties where it begins Nov. 4. Jerry Burns As Iowa Grid Coach Safe IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP)~ Iowa Athletic Director Forest Evashevski says football Coach Jerry Burns' job is safe "whether he wins or loses." Evashevski said in an interview Friday night he is behind Burns regardless of the Hawk- eyes' record this fall. Burns, an assistant coach at Iowa for seven years, replaced Evashevski as head coach for the 1961 season when Evashevski stepped out to concentrate on his job as athletic director. Ranked as the pre-season favorite for the national title when Burns took over, Iowa lost key players to injuries and finished with a 5-4 record. Last year the Hawkeyes had a 4-5 mark, worst since 1955. Former Streak Players Star For Knox Frosh GRINNELL — Four former Galesburg High School stars stood out as the Knox freshmen made their 1963 debut here Friday afternoon with a 20 to 6 win over Grinnell. Fullback Robin Watters of Galesburg scored the first touchdown on a 1-yard quarterback sneak. The next Siwash score came when Bill Sprlnggate fired to Gene Ciezaldlo for 20 yards and the touchdown. Former GHS gridder Johnny Humes made the final TD for Knox when he went six yards Knox when he went aix yards. The two-point conversion was scored on a pass from Springgate to Joe Heck, another ex- Streak performer. The only Grinnell score came in the last three minutes when Coach Harold Turner wai substituting freely. Doug Mustain, former Galesburg lineman, did a good job at tackle before leaving game due to injury.
