PAC.E TWENTY ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH WEDNESDAY, .frUNE 26, 1963 BRAWN IN BRONZE CANTON, Ohio — Three bronze figures of football players were mounted this week on a panel over the entrance to the National Professional Football Hall of Fame Building. Mrs. Mae Drulis of St. Louis, wife of St. Louis Cardinal assistant coach Chuck Drulis, was commissioned to cast the figures. The Hall of Fame is to be dedicated Sept. 7. (AP Wirephoto) Robin Roberts Gains 250th Victory LOS ANGELES (AP)—Although he is five-sixths of the way there, Robin Roberts is not sure he can stick around long enough to become a 300-game winner. But right now, he says, the only time the idea of retiring appeals to him is when he's trying to retire the other side. The 36-year-old right-hander picked up the 250th victory of his major league career Tuesday night, pitching a four-hitter as the Baltimore Orioles defeated the Los Angeles Angels 10-0. "I don't know if I can make it to 300," Robbie said. "But it'^i not out of the question—not after I've just pitched a shutout.' 1 Roberts said he "never gave much thought to retiring," not even after the New York Yankees released him outright early lust season. "But I'll admit," he said, "there may have been times when J've had occasion to retire.' 1 The only active major league pitchers with more than 250 victories are Milwaukee's Warren Spann, who has 337, and Cleveland's Early Wynn, who has 299. Spnhn is 42 and Wvnn 43. If Roberts is still pitching at their age. h° could finish with 300 victories and a little change. Hifi shutout Tuesday night wa.1 the 37th of his 16-year major league career and his second this season. He struck out font, walked none and didn't let the Angels get a runner beyond second base. PROTECTS HIS PASSER CLEVELAND (£>) — Blanton Collier, coach of the Cleveland Browns of the National Football League, has this explanation for getting offensive tackle Monte Clark from Dallas in exchange for guard Jim Ray Smith: "We studied all the Cowboys' linemen in great detail, but kept coming back to Clark. He seems to be particularly good at protecting the passer." Weather Bothers U.S. Net Players By JOHN (JAKE WIMBLEDON. England (AP) Thp Unitorl Stairs delegation i" the \Vimblednn Tennis Cham pi onships is troubled more by Brit isb weather than the internal ion al opposition. "This weather may not bothei the Briiish, but brother they c;m keep it," moaned Dennis Ralston Baketsficld, Calif, iiee who re cently won the NCAA national championships. His comment just about summed up ihe American players feelings about the eold, windy conditions that has plagued the tourney since its start and has disrupted the schedule. Rain stopped play twice in opening rounds and caused a late start Tuesday. Ralston, one of five U.S. players who won opening day matches, was on the sideline Tuesday as Chuck McKinley of St. Louis led six more U.S. players into the second round. McKinley, the only seeded American in the tourney, made occasional brilliant displays in 6-3, t>-3, 8-6 victory over Cliff Drysdale of South Africa. Other American victories: Charles Parsarell. Puerto Rico, defeated Franz Hainka. Austria, 6-3, 6-3, 7-5; Bob Siska, San Francisco, defeated Ion Tiriac, Romania, 6-4, 6-2, 7-5; Arthur Ashe, rlichmond, Va., defeated Carlos Fernandez, Brazil, 3-6, 4-6, 6-4, 6-4, 6-1; Frank FroehJing, Coral Gables, Fla., defeated Donald Dell Bethesda, Md., 1-6, 8-6, 6-3, 3-6, 6-3; and Tom Edlefsen, Berkeley, lalif., defeated A. C. Kendall, Australia 3-6, 6-3, 7-5, 1-6, 6-4. The Americans ousted included Sugene Scott of New York and Cliff Buchholz of St. Louis. In women's play, Mrs. Vera Su- cova of Czechoslovakia, beaten 'inalist last year, ousted Jane Albert of Pebble Beach, Calif., daughter of former football All- America Frankie Albert, 6-4, 6-4. Billie Jean Moffitt of Long Beach defeated Sonja Packta of Austria 6-4, 6-4. Top-seeded Margaret Smith of Australia won without trouble. To determine a pitcher's earned run average, multiply the total earned runs charged against his pitching by nine, and divide the result by the total number of innings he pitched. Lois Drafke Wins, Seeks Sixth Title FREEPORT, III. (AP) — De fending champion Lois Drafk". seeking an unprecedented sixth Illinois Women's amateur golf ti tie, opposes Mrs. Ray Kimpei of Urbnna in today's second round of competition. Miss Drafke, who won medal honors with a one-under-par 75 in Monday's qualifying round, was extended in Tuesday's first •.•OUIK: before ousting Sharron Moran of Batavia, 2 and 1. The opening round provided a number of close matches in which Mrs. Paul Dommers of Belvidere was eliminated. Mrs. Dom mers, the winner in 1957 and 1961, lost to Rae Ann Wiegert of Rockford, ] up. 'Mrs. Kimpei came out on top in the round's longest match, defeating Mrs. John Hungate of Sterling, 1 up on the 20th hole. Three other matches had to go 19 holes before being decider!. In these, 15-year-old Annette Rutt of Sterling defeated Mrs. Howard Brown of Prairie View, Salley Olson of Rockford defeated Kathy Oliver of West Chicago and Mrs. Robert Djidich of Freeport defeated Jean Clone of Rockford. Oilier first round results: Laurayn Conway, McHenry, debated Mrs. Richard Dye, Canton. West Lacks Quarterbacks For Game BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) — West Coach John McKay of Southern lalifornia says his squad lacks depth at quarterback for Saturday's AJ1 - American Football Bowl Game. Said McKay Tuesday, "They've got three. We've got one." East Coach Milt Bruhn of Wisconsin would agree. Bruhn is n the happy predicament of try- ng to decide between Wisconsin's n Vanderkelen and Notre Dame's Dary] Lamonica as a starter. Vanderkelen, the 1963 Rose Bowl hero, appears to have he edge. Glynn Griffing of Mississippi, n •un-pass specialist, is the third East signal-caller. The West has Southern Cal's Bill Nelsen, who guided the Tro- ans to the 1962 national championship. But the comparisons drop >ff sharply at this point. 9 and 7.

Fly at Cost 2 Four Place Cessnas Coll 259-3460 for details Maye May Answer Braves' Troubles MILWAUKEE (AP) — Manager Bobby Bragan appears to have solved a long-standing left field problem with Lee Maye and as a result the Milwaukee Braves are making up ground in the Na tional League race. Maye collected his fifth homer, a double and a walk and scored two runs as Tony Cloninger fired a four-hit, 4-0 victory Tuesday night in extending the punchless Houston Colts' losing streak to 10 games, Backed by Maye's homer on Houston starter Ken Johnson's firft pitch of the game, Cloninger survived a bases-loaded situation In the second inning and then breezed the rest of the way. Although he batted .300 in 51 games with Milwaukee in 1959 and .301 in 41 games the next .year, Maye has had trouble earning a regular job with the Braves. He hit .271, with 14 homers, in 1961, but dipped to .244 last season when he was sidelined by pneumonia for several weeks and lo<rt 25 pounds. "1 still was 10 or 12 pounds underweight this spring, but now I'm back to 188 pounds and feel as strong as ever," Maye said. •'I don't want to say too much for fear of jinxittg myself. AH I want to do Is to play regularly. "However, I'm not swinging as hard as I used to. I'm just trying to meet the ball and It's paying off. Dixie Walker, our batting coach, has helped a lot." In the first game with the Dodgers In 1959 Maury Wills made two errors at shortstop. Alton-Wood River Sportsman's Club TRAP SHOOT WEDNESDAY 7-10 P.M. For VACATION Money ••• VBL/C FINANCE i '» .
