PAGE EIGHTEEN ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH WEDNESDAY, JUNE 19,1&68 George Hunt Faces Tough Field at LA Californians Rated High In Half Mile By DON PLARSKI Telegraph Sports Editor When George Hunt, who recent ly graduated from Alton High School, competes in the Fourth Annual Golden West Invilationa Track and Field Meet at Los Angeles Saturday afternoon he'll be facing the toughest 880 field lie has ever run against. As of now, there will be eight runners competing in (ho half mile event. Five of the athletes, including Hunt, live outside the state of California. Top time of the eight competing belongs to Mike Coley of Santa Maria, Calif. He 1ms been timed In 1:53.5. Two other Californians have turned in fast times. Vance Veneo of San Marino has a 1:53.3 to his credit and Frank Slemp of Wheatland has been clocked in 1:53.2. Top time for an outstater goes to Bert Barto of Mercer Island. Wash. He has been clocked ii 1:53.3. Dave Webb of Amarillo, Tex has a 1:54.1, Mike Curtis of North Eugene, Ore. has shown a 1:54.4 and Ricardo Urbina of Elmhurst, N.Y. has a 1:54.7. Hunt's best time this year is 1:54.6. That mark came in t h e recent Beaumont Invitational and earned him an invitation to the West Coast spikefest at Los Angeles State College. Last weekend in the YMCA all-comers meet, Hunt turned In a time of 1:55.2 on a soggy track. Hunt has recovered from the shoulder separation suffered two days before the state meet at Champaign where he finished second as he did last year. . A few weeks ago, Dennis Carr of La Habra, Calif, set the national interscholastic 880 record with a time of 1:50.9. Carr will not compete in 880 at Los Angeles. Instead, he'll bypass the half mile for the mile, his "first love." Last Friday night Carr competed in the Compton (Calif.) Invitational and turned in a time of 1:49.2, whfcjh did not win the race. Carr was running against college runners at the time. The Golden West record is 1:50.6, set by Tommy Sullivan ol Evanston, 111. in 1961. Since he had already graduated, Sullivan's mark was not recognized for na tional interscholastic approval. The Golden West brings together the best prep talent available among graduating seniors in the country. Hunt will leave Thursday for California with Alton High track coach Jim Wigger and two ath letes from St. Louis, 440 runner Reginald Long of Beaumont and broad jumper Henry Green of O'Fallon Tech. Long and Green were also extended invitations by the Golden West committee. Contenders Threaten Sox' Second Spot CHICAGO (AP) — Unable to keep pace with the league-lead ing New York Yankees, the Chi cago White Sox are in danger o: being overtaken by several red hot American League contenders Tagged with a 5-3 defeat a' Minnesota Tuesday night, the Sox fell one game behind the Yan kees, who defeated Washington 10-5. And closing in on the seconc place Sox were Boston, Cleveland and Minnesota, all victori ous Tuesday night. The Sox fell behind the Twins 2-0 in the early innings and nev er caught up. They cut the mar gin to 4-2 and then to 4-3 on £ home run by J. C. Martin. Bu the Twins added an insurance run in the eighth inning off Hoyt Wilhelm to clinch the triumph. The Sox, still seeking their first victory in Minnesota where they have lost four straight, wil send Ray Herbert, 5-4, against Dick Stigman 5-5, tonight. The Chicago Cubs opened six-game home stand with a 3-] victory over the Houston Colts Dick Ellsworth, needing ninth-inning help from Lindy McDaniel scored his ninth victory againsl five losses. Ellsworth, a top candidate foi the National League All-Stai team, is doing a turnabout from his disastrous record last year when he also won nine games but lost 20. Ellsworth might have had a shutout and gone the distance except tor his own throwing error Jn the ninth inniug on what might have been a double play ball. Ernie Banks drove home two Cub runs and Billy Williams cracked out three hits to lift his average to .307. Ellsworth's oarned-run average dipped to 1.83. The Cubs will send Glen Hobbie, 24, against Skinny Brown, 1-1, today in Wrif ley Field IFS ALL OVER Blood streams from a gash under the t\venty-on-year-old . egotistical, proph- left eye of British heavyweight cham- ecy-making heavyweight~from Louis- pion Henry Cooper as referee Tommy ville, Ky., was declared the winner of Little guides him to his own corner af- fight in fifth round as he had predicted, ter stopping fight between Cooper and (AP Wirephoto by cable from London) Cassias Clay Tuesday night.

(AP Wirephoto by cable from London) Cards Still on Top As Giants Beat LA By MIKE RATIIET Associated Pre«s Sports Writer Lew Burdette, a reluctant Cinderella who beat the stroke of midnight by a couple of ticks, may find the glass slipper forced on his foot a perfect fit. Acquired from Milwaukee just before Saturday night's trading deadline, Burdette went right to work for St. Louis and maintained the Cardinals' slim hold on the National League lead by checking the New York Mets 6-2 on six hits Tuesday night. Burdette, a 36-year-old left- hander, was dispatched to the Cards along with his hefty salary for catcher Gene Oliver and pitcher Bob Sadowski. The two-time 20- game winner said frankly he would have preferred to stay in Milwaukee. Burdette, though reluctant to give up his long-time association with the Braves, may prove the added pitching help St. Louis needs in its quest for its first NL pennant since 1946. Burdette responded immediately with a strong performance, blanking the Mets until Tim Harkness hit a two-run homer with two out in the ninth. He struck out seven and walked only one while boosting his record to 7-5 with his fourth straight victory. The triumph kept the Cardinals one-half game ahead of San Francisco. The Giants took over second place and dropped Los Angeles to third, V/2 games back, by thumping the Dodgers 9-3. In other games, fourth-place Cincinnati edged Philadelphia 2-1, the Chicago Cubs downed Houston 3-1 and Milwaukeed efeated Pittsburgh 7-5 in 10 innings. Harvey Kuenn, replacing slumping Felipe Alou, got the Giants going against the Dodgers, lathing a leadoff single in a six-run tliird inning and winding up the uprising with a two-run single. That provided more than enough margin forv Jack Sanford, who scattered 10 hits for his ninth vic- tory in 14 decisions, and got some additional working room from a homer by batterymate Tom Haller. Bob Miller, 4-4, was the losci 1 . The Reds won in the ninth after Vada Pinson's bouncer skipped over the head of Phils' first baseman Roy Sievers for a triple. Two intentional walks followed before Johnny Edwards singled in the deciding run. That ruined a smart pitching performance by Ray Gulp 8-5, who allowed only six hits. Al Worthington, 2-1, got the victory. Dick Ellsworth won his ninth for the Cubs with Lindy McDaniel's relief help. Ellsworth, who has lost five, had a shutout until the ninth when the Colts scored on Carl Wai-wick's single, a wild pitch, his own error and Howie Goss' grounder. Ernie Banks drove in two Chicago runs with a single and sacrifice fly, and now has 999 RBI for his career. Joe Torre got the job done for the Braves with a two-ioin homer in the 10th following Dick Schofield's third error—the Pirates sixth of the game. Torre tripled to knock in a run and scored the tying tally in the eighth. Bill Mazeroski homered for Pittsburgh. Bob Shaw, 3-4, was the winner with Al McBean, 7-2, taking the loss.

O'MALLEY LONDON (AP) — Cassius Marcellus Clay, the punching prophet, beat Britain's Henry Cooper in the predicted' fifth round Tuesday night and silenced a horrified crowd in the fight that Liz Taylor stopped. As the fifth round opened, a terrible cut over Cooper's left eye Dumped blood over the Wembley Stadium ring. Cass the Gas flashed remorse- ess lefts into the unseeing eye. Liz, there with Richard Burton, lumped out of her seat and started screaming "No, no, no." The crowd, two minutes earlier confident that Clay was finished, took up the cry with a chant of 'Stop it, stop it." They threw newspapers into the ring to show that Cooper was done. Referee Tommy Little stepped in. The crowd sat in silence as he declared Clay the winner on a technical knockout after one minute 15 seconds of the fifth round- exactly 20 seconds earlier than Cassius had forecast. Thus Clay had pulled off another prophecy. But he was dumped on the seat of his trunks before he did it. The Louisville Lip, who entered the ring for the scheduled 10- round fight wearing a crown, looked anything but kingly in the first round when Cooper swarmed over him like a man fighting off bees. But he straightened out in the second round and the outdoor crowd of 50,000 saw a fast, quick- punching heavyweight. The clown in him was gone when he got in trouble. Cooper caught Clay flush on the chin with a solid left hook and Cass went down heavily for a count of three before the bell at the end of the fourth round. Cass admitted later in his dressing room that the punch numbed him but contended he would have been up without the bell. Jack Nilon, one of world heavyweight champion Sonny Liston's managers, was in Clay's dressing room. When Cassius said he was ready to fight Listen "if the price is right," Nilon stepped up. "We want you," he told Clay. "And the price will be right." The cocky Cassius declared that "the ugly bear will fall in eight." Nilon suggested Philadelphia as the site.
