r JUISTE 13," 1963 ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH PAGE THIRTY-FIVE PERFECT THROW OMAHA—A perfect throw from outfielder Willie by Martin Howell hi last night's NCAA college series Brown to catcher Bud Hollowed nipped Florida State's game between State and Southern California.—Assoc- Bill Williamson as Williamson tried to score on a hit iated Press Photo) Hitchcock Has Answers NEW YORK (AP) - Manager Billy Hitchcock of the Baltimore Orioles has a ready answer for his team's startling string of setbacks, 11 defeats in the last 13 games and five losses in a row. All this after the Orioles had won nine straight to go into first place. "Everybody stopped hitting at once," said the pipe-smoking skipper after the Orioles lost to the New York Yankees Wednesday night, 3-2 in 10 innings. "Our pitching has been gorxJ all the way," Hitchcock said. "But we just haven't been able to put the hits together." Despite the general slump, the Orioles are only IVz games out of first place. For which Hil un- cock is grateful. "I'm not particularly worried, we've got too many good hitters to continue this way for long," Hitchcock said. "We're bound to start hitting again soon." Are the Mets Now a Bore To NY Fans? By JIM IIACKLEMAN Associated Press Sports Writer NEW YORK (AP)—Will mediocrity spoil the Mets? Have New York's baseball darlings—once such hapless, hopeless, lovable losers — improved to the point where they now are merely losers? Are the Mets becoming a bore? In their maiden season in the National League last year, the Mets set unbelievably high standards for futility. They found new ways to lose. They lost with an inimitable flair. Time and again they staged those incredible, implausible — and almost inevitably useless—rallies. Nobody took it all very seriously, and it was fun. But this season they've taken the fun out of losing. Through trades and purchases and promotions and demotions, the Mets are a better club, mechanically. Where once they threw away games with remarkable inventiveness, they now are losing routinely by being outhit, outpltched and outfielded. A large number of boosters •have been swarming to the Polo Grounds to see the Mets in the flesh. Local pundits havo tabbed these fans the "New Breed." The newest idol of the New Breed is Jim Piersall, the center fielder recently acquired from Washington. Piersall is .a talented player but is best known as one of baseball's zanier citizens. However, Piersall's antics are no longer a novelty. His very unpredictability is predictable. Perhaps that sums up the Mets. They've become predictable. And who needs predictable losers?

Cincinnati (Purkey 1-3) (N). By MIKE KATHET Associated PresH S|>orts Writer Los Angeles' Bob Turley gave lis former club, the New York Yankees, a boost into the American League's top spot Wednesday light with a one-hit 5-0 victory over the White Sox. That gave the Angels a split of a twi-night doubleheader—Chicago's John Buzhardt hurled n three-hit 3-1 first game triumph —and dropped the White Sox .001 >oints behind New York. The Yankees reached the top rung with a 3-2, 10-innjng triumph over sagging Baltimore. Meanwhile, Cleveland's Indians •oiled to their sixth consecutive victory with a costly 12-6 triumph over Detroit in which they lost outstanding rookie outfielder Vic Davilillo for at least four weeks ivith a broken right forearm. In other games, Boston used the ionic run punch to down Washington 5-3 and Kansas City and Minnesota played richochet in :plitting a doubleheader. The A's jounded 17 hits for a 12-4 vic- ory, then the Twins lashed 13 'or an 8-1 triumph. Tin-ley posted the 100th victory of his 12-year major league ca- •eer. He struck out seven and valked four in bringing his record to 2-5. Leon Wagner helped iim by going 4-for-4, Including his 5th home run. Buzhardt, 7-2, fell behind 1-0 in he second inning of the opener )Ut went on to retire the Angels n order until the eighth. By then he White Sox had pulled ahead. The Yankees tied ' it in the eighth on Tom Tresh's double and Joe Pepitone's single, then won .n the 10th when Brooks Robinson >pened the door by muffing Bob- jy Richardson's grounder. Rich- irdson moved around to score the clincher on a sacrifice, a walk and Roger Maris' single. It was the Orioles' fifth straight loss and .heir lllh in 13 games. Davalillo was hit by a Hank Aguirre pitch in the first inning •md was replaced by Jerry Kindall, who started the Indians' winning three-run rally in the seventh inning with a double. A walk, two passed balls and singles by Joe Adcock and Willie Kirk- and did the rest of the damage. The Tigers had built an early ead on homers by Al Kaline, Jake Wood and Dick McAuliffe. The Red Sox scored all their runs on a three-run homer by Ed Bressoud, and solo shots by Carl Yastrzemski and Dick Stuart while Billy Monbouquette, 8-4, scattered eight Senators' hits. Jim King homered for Washington. BOWLING BOWL INN Wednesday Mixed Ladies: Grant 186, Renken 176. Men: Munmer 171, Leimbach Guthrie H03, Holt 220, Phillips 203, Hieraan 211, J. Eberharl 231.

Players Pick Stars Soon NEW YORK (AP) — In small circles around major league baseball dugouts, players, coaches and managers were discussing today how to single out the top players for starting berths in the 1963 All-Star baseball game at Cleveland, July 9. The little knots began to form with notification Wednesday from the office of Commissioner Ford Frick that polling of the clubs for the All-Star classic would be held the week of June 21-27. Only one All-Star game will be played this year. For the past four years, two have been played. The voting will determine the starting teams, with the exceptions of pitchers. The hurlers and the remainder of the 25-man squads will be picked by the managers, Al Dark of the Nation al League and Ralph Houk of the American. Ripples—- «ne! Outdoors with Harold Brand Highly Respected Sportsman An Alton boat racing pilot, who vas running in the money during two-day marathon race in the Yazoo River betw/etn Yazoo City ind Vicksburg, Miss., last weekend, abandoned Ms position in the race to help a competitive driver tvho had capsized and was serious- y injured. In doing so, the Alton pilo'; earned and received the highest re- ipect from all other contestants and the people of both cities. A spokesman said that Wilbur Holmes, 4 W. Delmar Ave., gain ed the highest esteem among the other drivers for being a good sport and that he would al\Vay.s ae welcome anytime in Vicksburg and Yazoo City. Holmes and his family had driven there to participate in the •ace and Holmes was in second or third place when Bobby Street of Vicksburg, operating a larger boat, capsized. Eilher the propeller or Street's sunglasses severly lacerated his face. Holmes stopped and with another driver from Florida, rescued Street who is in serious •.•ondition. Big Prize ftloney The two-day marathon offered $6,000 iri prize money plus a Calcutta stakes. Other Alton area pilots who attended the races included Bob Grading, Godfrey, Don Clark, Alby Street, Jim. Crow, Bethalto, and Dun Porter, Milton Road area. Clark started 19th in the race but ended in second place on the first day o£ the race. Clark was only 4.9 minutes behind the world's champion. Camping Trip An exploratory camping trip was made to areas in southen Illinois last weekend by Dave Wiimett and family, and Bill llieka and family, both of Wood River. They found facilities were not of the best, Crab Orchard Lake was crowded and they campec at Little Grassy Lake. "Good fishing stopped about two weeks ago," Hicks said. "We sav one angler bring in a 1% pounc bass. There are good swimming beaches at Little Grassy Lake Crab Orchard and Devils Kitchen ,akes. Outboard motors up to six lorsepower are permitted on Little ake, and are forbidden on Devil's Kitchen." Camped on Boat A camping trip aboard a pon- :oon boat and some excellent fish ng was enjoyed last week on Bull Shoals Lake by Mr. and Mrs Carl Lackey, Bethalto. The couple vacationed with Lackey's brother- n-law and wife, Mr. and Mrs. Jeff Best, Seymour, Mo., aboard the latter's boat. "We fished near Theodosia, Mo., n Doc Johnson's Cove where the fish were biting in numbers,' Lackey said. "One night we took 29 white bass and crappie, anothei light 25, mid 35 on another night The fish bit only between 9 p.m. and 2 a.m. and wouldn't bite in the daytime at all. "The white bass averaged tsvo to 4'/fc pounds," he continued. "We 'ished in waters ranging from 4( :o 100 feet deep and caught the :ish about two feel off the bottom." Kepi Busy A five day fishing trip nearly put blisters on the hand of Ed husus, Godfrey, and Dutch Oberk- fell, Alton, during a recent fishing trip to Reelfoot Lake, Tenn. The men scored more than 200 bream and 90 crappie during a stay at u cabin owned by Ed Webb. Mr. und Mrs. W. II. Marlin, 107 S. Eighth St., Wood River, recently have been enjoying some excellent Bream fishing at Hutch- cral't Motel and Cabins on Reel- foot Lake, Hornbeak, Tenn., reported Bill Hull, inolel manager. Hull says that 65 per cent of their visitors are from Illinois. Nuisance Deer More readers are reporting an increase in the deer population. One resident of Fairrnount says the deer are becoming a nuisance in that area. He is used to rabbits and squirrels raiding his bird feeders. The squirrels cleverly un latch hooks and open doors of the feeder but a pair of young deei chew away the wooden sides to remove the glass and eat the food. They also eat the rose bush stems, thorns and all. The resident is about ready to call for help. NOW!
