PAGE TWENTY-TWO ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH WEDNESDAY, JUNE 5, 1963 MacArthur Tries Again ToSaveTrack NEW YORK (AP)—Old Soldior Douglas MncArthur has told the warring amateur sports groups to hiry the hatchet until aflrv the 1964 Olympic Games—but whether his words will be herdtxi remains to be sren. MacArthur said in a bristling statement issued Tuesday that the feuding factions had agreed to do nothing that would keep athletes out of competition and hurt America's international teams. If they don't keep their word, the five-star general said, they would "well merit the condemnation of every sportsman and, indeed, every patriotic American." The general was appointed six months ago by President Kennedy to patch up the squabble between the Amateur Athletic Union and the new college-sponsored U.S. Track and Field Federation. The President said the dispute threatened to wreck the U.S. Olympic team for 1964. MacArthur presided over the dispute in January and again in March but it has broken out again, centered on the National AAU track championships at St. Louis June 20-22. The U.S. team for a scheduled meet in Russia will be picked there. The feud flared anew early this week when Asa Bushnell, commissioner of the Eastern College Athletic Conference, the largest college group in the country, reminded the ECAC members their athletes should not compete in the AAU meet unless the USTFF sanctions those athletes. The AAU has steadfastly refused to ask for such sanctioning, leaving the two groups at loggerheads and the college athletes out in the cold. a »' PRANK CLAUSE © WHAT SPECIAL BOWLING TIPS DO YOU HAVE FOR THE BOWLER WHO IS SHORT IN STATURE? To the bowler who is a bit shorter than average, I recommend, first, that he take approach steps that are a bit shorter than the average person's; in fact, his entire approach to the foul line should be about a foot shorter than is normal. Second, he should stand almost erect as he takes his stance — not bent over. Finally, the bowler who is small in size and stature should always use a conventionally drilled ball, not a fingertip grip, since, with his small hand, he'll undoubtedly experience real control problems with the latter. (© 1903, General Features Corp.) Pitchers Lock Up In Torrid Duel SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (AP) - Right-handers Gary Modrell of the Reading Red Sox and Bob Bishop of the Springfield Indians entered the ninth inning of an Eastern League game Tuesday night — bothing working on no-hitters. Both lost them in the ninth and Reading won 1-0 on a single by Gene Giannian and Tom Williams' triple off Bishop. Modrell had lost the season's opener here when Bishop beat him —on a no-hitter. He gave up one hit this time. 25 POINTS A GAME DURHAM, N. C. (W» — A Heyman led Duke's basketball team, a victor in all 14 Atlantic Coast Conference games, in scoring this season with 658 points.

Equador Convicts 2 U. S. Fishermen QUITO, Ecuador (AP)—Ecuador has convicted two San Diego turm fishing boats of violating territorial waters and ordered them to pay a total of $26,272 in fines and registration fees. There is no appeal from the order by Development Minister Jose Salazar. If the boats' owners don't pay up in five days, the boats will be confiscated. Ecuador, which claims exclusive fishing rights within 200 miles of its coast, said the two American boats were within the three-mile limit. The American fishermen insisted they were 12 miles off the coast. CHICAGO (AP) - The Chicago Cubs moved to within 3 games of the league-leading San Francisco Giants and handed Billy O'Dell his first defeat in nine decisions with a 6-1 victory Tuesday. Cubs Beat O'Dell, Trail By 3 Games in the first on singles by Billy Williams, Santo and Banks. Dick Bertell iced the contest in the fifth with a bases-loaded single. The loss was O'Dell's first of the season after winning eight straight. Osinski outdueled southpaw Ron Santo and Ernie Banks Gary Peters in the Angels' vie- paced the Cubs' attack, each accounting for two runs. But it was Bob Buhl's strong right arm which stopped the Giants and moved the Cubs into a third- place tie with the Los Angeles Dodgers. In Los Angeles, Dan Osinski hurled his first major league shutout as the Angels defeated The Chicago White Sox 1-0, dropping the Sox into third place, 1 game behind the Baltimore Orioles and percentage points behind the New York Yankees. Buhl fired a five j hitter and struck out four in collecting his fifth victory against four defeats. He was a last-minute replacement for Larry Jackson, who developed a blister on a finger of his pitching hand. The Cubs scored a pair of runs tory. The right-hander allowed the Sox only three hits and Peters gave up five until relieved after seven innings. The only run was scored in the fourth inning when Felix Torres opened with a single and scored on a hit by Lee Thomas. It was the second loss in the last eight games for the White Sox.

"It was shortly after lunch on he second day of our trip last 'riday that my wife sitting in he bow of the canoe and myself in the stern started into a •apids about one block long," Dr. Boals related. "The canoe struck a snag and flipped the canoe instantly. Both of us were wearing life jackets and we managed to hang onto the canoe. "Stuart was behind us beyond button-hook turn in the river which is just above the mouth of the Jack Forks River," he continued. "The Stuarts didn't see us in the water until they came through the rapids themselves. They were unable to stop. Two men who had been resting in their canoes at the mouth of the Jack Forks came .o our. rescue immediately and helped us ashore." Water Was Cold Dr. Boals and his wife found he water was ice cold despite warm temperatures of air. Their paddles and life cushions were retrieved by the Stuarts who had been carried on down- tream in the current. They at- empted to paddle back up- tream in a hurry but the current slowed them considerably. 'I don't know what we would have done without the help of he two other canoists who were waiting for friends also com- ng downstream Forks," Dr. Boals said. "We didn't loose much equipment because we had been warned to tie everything down. After the spill we made sure that noth- ng could come loose." The second dunking occurred Saturday afternoon when Dr. Boals and his wife attempted to cut across a swift riffle and the canoe shipped on so much water hat the couple were partially ossed out and got out to save the canoe and its belongings. They made it ashore and baito the canoe again. Paddled Most of Way This was the first canoe floa trip for both couples and the; have mixed emotions about goin; on such a trip again. Dr. Boal thinks using a flat boat with guide would keep them out of th drink. Stuart says that carryini so much equipment in a canoe i for the birds but he certainly hac a most enjoyable time. The couples camped on sane bars three nights and spent th night in sleeping bags withou pitching tents. The Current Rive was swollen from recent rains an there was a brisk upstream win the entire 55 to 60 miles of wate covered. 'We had to paddle hard most o the time," Dr. Boals said. 'W began the float at Round Spring Thursday afternoon and took 01 at Big Springs a few miles down stream from Van Buren. My radi was soaked in the dunkings an didn't dry out and begin workin until after we returned home. Lost Area The couples carried plenty c food and camping gear. Stuar carried home made fire starter which consisted of celotex soakec in parafin. Both Stuart and Dr Boals have been camping buddie for a number of years but don rough it too much anymore, Stu art said. "We saw scenery out of thi world," Stuart related. "On on occasion, we say a deer swim th river directly ahead. We paddle as far as 25 miles in one day." However there is 10 miles o lost country down there, accord ing to mileage guessed by fisher men along the shore. Dr. Boal asked several fishermen how fa an area was and received th answer of 15 miles several times Then another fisherman suddenly told him he was only five mile away. The latter angler was cor rect. Dr. Boals wonders wher the other 10 miles went.

Pastrano Selected Month's Top Boxer NEW YORK (AP)—Willie Pastrano, who pulled one of boxing's most startling upsets last Saturday night when he took the world light heavyweight title from Harold Johnson, is Ring Magazine's Fighter-of-the-Month. The 27-year-old Pastrano scored a split 15-round decision over Johnson at Las Vegas after entering the ring a prohibitive underdog. Johnson was dropped to the familiar spot as No. 1 contender— a position he held for some time during Archie Moore's long reign as light-heavy king. Former champion Ingemar Johansson's retirement brought about a slight change In Ring's heavyweight rankings. Wayne Beth ea of New York made the ratings in the 10th spot. Germany's Erich Schoppner also retured, leaving a place In the light heavyweight listings. Allen Thomas of Chicago moved in, at No. 10. Ring still recognizes no junior welterweight champion, but says that title will go to the winner of the June 18th bout between Eddie Perkins of Gary, Indiana, and Roberto Cruz of the Philippines.
