ALTON &VJCN1NO TELEGRAPH , JUM& 22, ItfbO German Sprinter Turns In Fastest 100 Time ftfWffentf (AP) - Htfjr, Wot Germany'! 23> )>eaf«Kl flash. Tuesday became Ow DM man in history to cloct ffi seconds flat in the 100-meter dash. Hary served notice he's the one United States sprinters will have to beat in the Olympics in Rome in a seven-nation meet in Zurich Letzigrund Stadium — possibly the fastest track in Europe. He entered the race at the last moment. "I didn't intend to run," he said happily Wednesday. "But Manfred Germar, a teammate of mine was injured and he had to with draw. So I decided to take his place." Hary is no fluke. In 1958, he won the European 100-meter title, then was caught in 10 seconds in a meet in West Germany. But the German AAU disallowed the mark because of a slight decline in the track. Tuesday, in his heat, he got away while the rest of the field still was at the post. The starter apparently thought all was in order because he permitted the race to go on. But when the dockers looked at their watches, they couldn't be- Uve their eyes. Hary was caught in 9.9 by one timer and 10 flat by the other two. The referee immediately decided not to allow the time to stand. Hary, ugset, protested. The heat was ordered rwnn. Again Hary was away like a shot, and again the docker gasped when they consulted their watches. One had him in 10.1 and the other two in 10 Hat. This time they, could find nothing wrong The wind was 0.8 meters per sec ond, "well within the allowable limits. The official world record is 10.1 held jointly by Willie Williams tra Murchlson and Leamon King all of the United States. Bradley Breeds Major Leaguers PEORIA, famed for III. its (AP) — More basketball play, Bradley University quietly has established itself a pretty fair breeding ground for major league baseball prospects. Three players recently were signed by major league scouts from this yprtr's Braves baseball club, raising to 29 the number of Braves Coach Leo Schrall has son go Into professional ranks in 12 years. Pitcher Harold Kunkel and out- ielder-first baseman Bill Dlxon were signed by the San Francisco iants, reportedly for a $15,000 bonus each. The Cincinnati Reds latched onto outfielder Larry Pohlman for a bonus said to be around $5,000.

The Purdue senior from Sea Banks Clubbing Homers At Record-Setting Pace PHILADELPHIA (API - Ernie Banks isn't taking any predictic but right now it appears he's got the best chance of breaking Hack Wilson's National League mark of 56 home runs in a single season. And the Chicago Cubs' shortstop Is In a good no ion to challenge Babe Ruth's all-time record of. 80. Banks clubbed numbers 19 and 20 Tuesday night in a 7-6 loss to Philadelphia to put him ahead of Cliff, Long Island, N. Y., was one j the pare Wilson set In 1930 with of only three players among the (the Cubs. That season Wilson 187 starters to break par 36-35—71 over the windy and hilly 7,035- vard Broadmoore course the past wo days. He had a 70 Monday but went over par Tuesday. Medalist runnerup Jack Nickaus of Ohio State, the National Amateur champion, qualified with 46. His first round opponent is Al Yancye of Army (152). Houston swept the team championship for the fifth straight year with 603. That was the total strokes for its four lowest scoring entrants. Purdue and C klahoma State ied for runnerup at 607.

St. Mary's Wins In Senior Church League play uesday St. Mary's defeated Alon First Baptist, 7-3. with a our-run outburst in the fifth Ining at Henry street. belted No. 20 In the 59th game. Banks did it in the 55th game. Banks, however, trails RuthV record-setting pace of 1927 by three games not counting the second game of Tuesday night's twi night doublehcader which was suspended by National League curfew after eight Innings with the Phillies leading 7-5. Ruth hit ils 19th and 20th horn- ers in the 52nd game that year. Ten of Banks' homers have come this June, his largest output in a single month in his seven years in the majors. He explained this by saying that his timing is coming around much better. "And I'm swinging at better balls than I did the first part of thr year," he added. "I'm relaxing, just trying to meet the ball and get a h-.se hit. When I try to hit it out of the park I sometimes take my eye off the ball and do a lot of things wrong." The National League's most valuable player two years running (1968-69), Banks politely shrugs off questions about break ing records. "You've got to be lucky." he says. "You've got to hit a lot of homers In August and September. But I think someday Ruth's record will be broken." The 29-yet.r-old inflelder leads both leagues in homers and runs batted in, 58.
