FRIDAY, JUNE 7, 1963 ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH PAGE FIFTEEN Lindy Hurls, Hits Cubs Into First Associated Press Sports Writer CHICAGO (AP) - The sizzling Chicago Cubs, buried in the National League's ^second division for the past 16* seasons, have hurdled into a first-place tie on the batting. prowess of a 1.000 hitter—relief pitcher Lindy Mc- Danlel. McDaniel's second home run of his career in the 10th inning Thursday handed the Cubs a 3-2 triumph over front-running San Francisco for a sweep of a four- game series and the Cubs' llth triumph in 13 games. It's the first time in six seasons the Cubs have flirted with first place at any stage of the race. McDaniel's game-deciding blow off reliever Billy Pierce was his first hit as a Cub and was no less artistic than his superb relief job in the top of te 10th when he handcuffed the Giants with the bases loaded and only one out. The Cubs open a three-game set today with the Los Angeles Dodgers, who also are menacing the top spot which the Giants have held since May 7. It's awfully early for pennant fever, but the 40,000 Cub fans who attended the midweek series with the Giants certainly displayed it. This was the biggest midweek turnout since the neighboring Milwaukee Braves — then riding a prosperous crest—played the Cubs before 66,000 in a three- game set in 1958. The 11,240 fans Thursday rocked Wrigley Field when McDaniel, former ace fireman for the St. Louis Cardinals, first saved the day in the top of the 10th by picking Willie Mays off second and striking out Ed Bailey, and then broke a 2-2 tie by poking his only homer since a 1957 clout off Brooklyn's Roger Craig. McDaniel, 28, a 6-foot-3 right- hander from Florissant, Mo., doesn't even own a bat of his own. He borrowed third baseman Ron Santo's club for his big smash. "I don't come up to bat too often, you know," grinned Lindy. "I was so busy out there in the top of the tenth, I didn't realize I was first up when we carne to bat," continued McDaniel. "I didn't know Billy Pierce had come in for starter Juan Marichal until I stepped up to the plate. When • that 2-2 pitch came in waist high, I just swung and away it went." McDaniel, who came to the Cubs in the off-season deal which brought pitcher Larry Jackson as the big Cardinal man in the swap for George Altman, Don Cardwell and Moe Thacker, said only once had he ever ordered his own bats. That was in spring training of 1958 with the Cardinals, "But I never got a chance to sharpen .up my hitting," recalled McDaniel. "I got rocked in three starts and wound up at Omaha. Believe me, I'm the kind of hitter who can remember every hit I get." But Lindy, who now has a 3-1 Cub record in 19 relief appearances, came back in 1960 for his best. Cardinal year, a 12-4 record and an impressive total of 27 "saves." His entire baseball career, except for the Omaha stint, has been in the majors since he was signed by the Cards as a bonus player in 1955. The surge of the Cubs under head coach Bob Kennedy marks the first time since May 7, 1958, the club has been at the top of the National League standings. At that early stage of the season, the Bruins had a 13-7 record, compared with their current 31-23 listing. Today the Cubs will start Cal Koonce (1-2) or Paul Toth (1-2) against Don Drysdale (6-6) at Wrigley Field.

(AP Wirephoto) Long Count Was a Good Break, Says Dempsey EDITOR'S NOTE—To a younger generation, the name Jack Dempsey is a legend of the ring. But the man himself, now Hearing , says that if he had it all to do over again, he would become a doctor. Associated Press staff writer Raleigh Allsbrook visits with the former heavyweight champion. By RALEIGH ALLSBROOK NEW YORK (AP)—Jack Dempsey was one of the fiercest fighters ever to draw on a glove. But today, as he nears 68, his face glows when he talks of helping his fellow man. He winces slightly when he recalls how hard he hit some of his ring foes. "I regret it," he remarked. "Maybe I could have knocked some of them out without hitting so hard." The former heavyweight champion is ruggedly handsome, his skin tanned and his thick black hair glossy and only lightly touched with gray. He walks with the light tread of a fighter and his 210 pounds are only 22 more than in his fighting days. His big hands have the feel of iron when you shake hands. The lean and hungry look is gone from his face, but he still closely resembles the old Manassa Mauler of the 1920s. Looking back over the years, as his June 24 birthday approaches, he said if he had his life to live over again, he would like to be a doctor — one who would help his patients both physically and mentally. "I think I could do more for humanity as a doctor," he explained in an interview. "Everybody in the world needs help and encouragement. "I've been down and out so many times I know about those things. A little bit of talk will often make a person feel like a new man. Never discourage a person. Make him feel well. Try to build him up. "If I do something for a man, it comes back a hundred fold. You have to be a human being in this world. I'm no angel, don't misunderstand me. Butas I get older I realize that it's only the good Lhings you do for people that count, "We are all God's people." Dempsey won the heavyweight :ille by slicing Jess Willard to ribbons in 1919. He lost it when was outpointed in 1926 by Gene Tunney, the former Marine boxing master. In addition to being one of the most ferocious fighters ever to enter the ring, Dempsey was the most colorful since John L, Sullivan. His dynamite-laden fists attracted the first million-dollar gate and he drew four more before he was through. Dempsey now devotes his time to his Broadway restaurant, his apartmnt property in California, a technical school in Chicago and personal appearances. When he is in New York, he gets up about 9, breakfasts with his wife — who operates a jewelry business — catches up on his correspondence and then goes to the restaurant to greet people during the lunch period. He rests at home during the late afternoon, andthen returns to the restaurant, where a large James Montgomery Flagg mural shows him winning the title from Willard. Although his last fight was in 1932, he still is treated to adulation by out-of-town visitors who flock to the restaurant to get a look at him. His health is good except for a mild heart condition and a lower back injury suffered in his Luis Firpo fight that still bothers him. He isn't bitter about the "long count" when he knocked Tunney down in attempting to regain his title in 1927, but failed to go to a neutral corner as required. Tunney, given five extra seconds be fore the count started, got up and won the decision. "It was the greatest break I ever got," Dempsey said. "It was probably time I stopped fighting. I also made a half million dollars and I lot to a nice fellow, a gentleman. And a lot of people today still think I was the winner. But Tunney was in better shape at the end. He deserved to win." Dempsey has been married four times. His present wife has a daughter by a former marriage and he has two married daughters he often visits in California. They are by his third marriage, to former singer Hannah Williams.

Carlyle Reservoir Speaker The Mississippi Valley Duck Hunters Assn. has scheduled a meeting for next Tuesday at the Aubuchon-Dennison Post, 4016 Chippewa at Gravois Streets in Tony Lema's Sub-Par 67 Washed Out GRAND BLANC, Mich. (AP>Tony Lema, cheated out of a first round sub-par 67 in the $52.000 Flint Open Golf Tournament, faced up to the job of trying it over again today. An electrical storm forced cancellation of Thursday's first round halting hot-shooting Tony's drive for the $9,000 top prize as he took the lead over the 159-man field. With all scoring wiped off the books, the tourney at Warwick Hills started all over again today. The storm chased players and 3,000 spectators off the course with about a third of the field still out. Earlier, while the sun still shone in 90-degree weather, Lema had finished a 34-33 round on the 7,280-yard course and departed. Lema, threatening absent Jack ^icklaus and other money-winning leaders in the pro contin- ;ent, shot a string of four straight birdies in leading Don Essig by hree strokes and Bert Weaver by 'our. Twelve other sub-par scores were wiped out by the cancella- Sam Snead, a favorite, was breed to a three-over-par 75. Snead went to a double bogey on one hole. Davies Chases Second Title Se. Louis, Schwerzlor, Johanboeke announced Raymond secretary. Karl G of the U. S. Army Corps of Engineers will talk on the Carlyle Reservoir on the Kaskaskia River in Illinois. In addi tion, a movie will be shown. The public is invited. Deer Population Deer populations seem to be increasing in many Illinois areas including near Alton, according to many recent reports. Don Weeks and his wife, Mission Road, saw a deer cross Seminary Road on a recent occasion. Ozzle Rousseau and Otto Threde, Front Street have observed deer on islands on Alton Lake. One of the deer on an island is like a pet as it will come to humans to be petted. Threde and Rousseau have pictures of the latter deer. Thursday morning two young deer were seen on McAdams Highway east of Norman's Landing by Bill Flippo of Clifton Terrace. Thursday evening, Harold Leon ard and his family and this writer watched a fawn feeding beside Rte. 100 near Pere Marquette Park. As the deer population increases, the length of the deer seasor in the fall will be increased. Only so many deer can be fed in natura habitat and if the surplus isn't taken by hunters they will die of starvation anyway.

The fourth and fifth rounds Thursday exacted a terrific toll, mostly among the British stars. Five Walker Cup players fell by the wayside, Joe Carr of Ireland, Michael Bonallack and Martin Christmas of England, Ronnie Shade and Stuart Murray of Scotland. The only surviving British Walker cupper, Michael Lunt of England, was confronted by Davies in the quarter-finals.

Congressman Wins Seniors Golf Tourney RYE, N.Y. (AP)-Jack Westland is still winning golf championships at the age of 58, and he apparently isn't through collect ing silverware. "I'd like to be like Chick Evans —I want to play tournament golf as long as I can swing a club,' the slender Republican Congressman from Everett, Wash., saic after beating John Bartlett by 1; strokes in a playoff for the U.S Seniors Golf Association championship. Evans, former Amateur champion, remains active although in his 70s.

Mrs. Kampen, a novelist and short story writer, is the author of a funny nonfiction hook, "Life Without George," published two years ago. Now it is the basis of "The Lucy Show." Dnsi Arnaz had been looking for a suitable vehicle for Lucille Ball for three years before he ran across the book in which Mrs. Kampen described her experiences as a divorcee. For television, of course, many changes had to be made. Brunette Irene Kampen, divorcee, became red-haired Lucy Carmichael, widow. Lucy was given another child, a son. Jerry. Mrs. Kampen's fellow divorcee who—with son Eric —shared the Kampen home and adventures is named Evelyn. She became Vivian Bagley — played by Vivian Vance — whose son is named Sherman. Mrs. Kampen is a former newspaper reporter who wrote the book — her first — to indicate that all divorcees are not sleek sophisticated dames interested in other women's husbands. She enjoys a nice, one-way correspondence with the program: A hefty check arrives regularly and will continue to arrive as long as he series continues to be shown, even into reruns. "It's a lovely, painless way to make money," said the writer lappily.
